I know what a skin cancer removal scar looks like. I've seen countless, including on the face. It isn't a bad scar at all and it will fade over time.
Meanwhile, someone knifing your face so you have a scar from your nose to your ear? I think that's different than a 1.5-inch very pale line.
my wife had skin cancer removed from her back. the scars are definitely noticeable and would be even moreso if it was on her face. It would not be as trivial as you make it out to br

Have you seen people who've had skin cancer removed from their face? YOu have, you just don't know. it. They do a much better job on the face than they do with arms, legs, etc.-- which do not qualify for plastic surgery on the insurance policy's dime.

LW1 - if your friends aer driving tipsy or drunk on a regular enough basis, time to find sometihng new to do with them or to find new friends. If you don't want to call the cops on them, ask the bar staff to intervene.

LW2 - ask for some good make up. my friend had a skin cancer removed from her cheek, but if she has even foundation on, you can't tell.(She's pissed because she got skin cancer despite using sunscreen and not laying out, yet her sister goes tanning and is fine.) i'd say give it some time and make up, and hopefully she can become an advocate...

LW1: One DWI in my state will cost you a weekend in jail, a weekend or two of community service, a huge fine, and sky-high insurance rates for 7 years, at a minimum. It can be even worse. It is SO not worth it. Point this out to your friends, and always drive your own car with this crowd. If you decide that calling the police is the morally correct thing to do, then I think you should warn your friend that you are going to do that, and then follow through.

LW2: There's a product called Mederma that helps fade scars. That and some cover makeup will make it unnoticeable.

L1: Good suggestion!

L2: One could even argue that if she hadn't taken those precautions, it could have been a worse diagnosis.

No, it isn't. Not your solution, either. Think about that if any one of your family members ever become a victim of that type of crime.

totally agree on #2... i realize that myself. my friends are irish, and P got teh fairer skin while K got the heartier... It's also pure sibling rivalry, too. ;-) P has always lived paycheck to paycheck, yet has created a reasonably stable life for herself. i was happy to hear she was getting her care for this at Johns Hopkins.... so she had good treatment.

taht reminds me, time for me to make my appointment with my dermy to get another look-see. i htink i'm even more fair than P, so it;s been in the back of my mind ever since she had her surgery.

Why? Supposing one of my family members IS a victim of such a crime, do you think I should blame the friend who didn't intervene and allowed the person to drive drunk, or should I blame the actual perpetrator?

I wasn't speaking of blame. If you're good with it, that's all that should matter to you.

Personally, it makes me think that if I had a close friend or relative who was so stupid to want to drive drunk and a friend of theirs stopped them, that would be a good thing. It could have saved their life or the life of someone they could have killed.

I would call the cops b/c I would want someone else to do the same thing in that situation if *I* am out on the road at risk of getting hit by a drunk driver.

Easy, Toj, that is quite a bit more empathy and foresight than he is capable of.

Blah blah blah, and if frogs had wings, they wouldn't hit their @zz when they hopped, what is your point? When did anyone ever say stopping someone from driving drunk is a BAD thing?

The unspoken word in the posts were about ethics and the responsibility to the community in general -- not so much personal responsibility. I don't know if you missed that or not.
