A mammogram missed my wife's cancer. It was discovered by a doctor's examination in her office.
physical examinations typically find breast cancers when they are much larger than those detected by mammography......

but there are always exceptions, and your wife's case may be one.....

and the earliest and most common form of breast cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ, is too small to be detected by physical examination, but can be detected by mammogram....

Donald Sterling shows the separate realities of Democrats and Republicans about race
The earliest polling on the Donald Sterling incident reveals a large partisan divide in public support of the NBA’s forcing him to sell the team—the league’s harshest possible punishment. According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 68 percent of Democrats support a forced sale of the Los Angeles Clippers compared to just 26 percent of Republicans.
That wide partisan divide is not too surprising in light of other polls conducted this past year, which also suggested that Democrats and Republican have increasingly separate realities about race. The first figure below shows similarly sizable partisan differences in Americans’ reactions to Sterling’s punishment, the George Zimmerman verdict, and the Academy Award for ”12 Years a Slave”(hat tip to Jonathan Chait for the latter).
Democrats and Republicans did not always see racial controversies so differently. The figure below shows relatively modest partisan divisions in response to earlier high-profile race-related incidents. As can be seen, Democrats and Republicans responded similarly to a racially charged 1984 New York subway shooting, where Bernhard Goetz shot four African American youths who he claimed were going to mug him. Democrats and Republicans also reacted similarly to the O.J. Simpson verdict despite the huge racial divide in perceptions of his innocence. In the case most analogous to the Sterling incident, when radio personality Don Imus made insensitive racial comments, Democrats were only 16 percentage points more likely than Republicans to say that Imus should be fired from his show.
To be sure, there are many plausible reasons why these past and present racial controversies generated such different levels of partisan polarization. A large piece of the puzzle is that racial attitudes and partisan attachments have become more closely aligned in the Obama era than they were before Obama’s rise to prominence.
The final figure shows that the correlation between Republican Party identification and opposition to both affirmative action and interracial dating increased sharply in Pew polls conducted during Obama’s presidency. This increasing correlation persists even after accounting for other factors and is present in other surveys too, such as the General Social Survey and the American National Election Study.
Party identification is not the only political attitude that has become more polarized by racial attitudes in the Obama era. Policy preferences, voting in congressional elections, and even impressions of Portuguese water dogs (the breed of the Obamas’ dogs) have all become more influenced by race-related considerations. The growing racialization of American politics means that Democrats and Republicans will increasingly view race-infused controversies like the Zimmerman trial, the Sterling incident, and the Cliven Bundy stand-off through very different lenses.

Since 1955, National Review magazine has defined the modern conservative movement and enjoys the broadest allegiance of American conservatives. National Review Institute was founded by William F. Buckley Jr. in 1991 to engage in policy development, public education, and advocacy that would advance the conservative principles he championed. Bill Buckley sought to preserve and buttress the foundations of our free society and to conserve our inheritance from the Founders. National Review Institute will synthesize the best thinking on how to guard and build on our country’s strengths and add vigor and practical application to our conservative convictions. National Review Institute will both draw from and support other conservative institutions, serving as an authoritative voice for conservative policies and for strategies to implement them."

Investigative correspondent, Sharyl Attkisson, resigned from CBS News ahead of contract after having been with CBS News for two decades. Attkissnon had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias and lack of dedication to investigative reporting.

She was struggling to get her reporting on air.

She is currently working on a book tentatively titled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington” that addresses the challenges of reporting critically on the administration.
