TOPIC: Renting a car in the US
Great feedback. Thanks. Insurance, or not, is another question. Reserving and paying with my gold Amex card "should" cover the collision side, but I'm still wary of deductibles and loops I might have to jump through if it actually came...

TOPIC: Hispanas genetically less likely to develop breast cancer
FN, makes sense. If you look, only Pacific Islanders/Asians have a lower incidence of breast cancer than Latinas. So the Indians got it from the Asians, and the Latinas got it from the Indians. Will look at the "self-identify" link...
