I'm just wishing Dave Barry would confirm he's running this year again... how could you not support a man with this stance?

As an older male American, I believe that our Number One health-care priority, as a nation, must be to make the medical profession find some way to get to the prostate gland other than the way they're getting to it now.

Actually JT, there is another way under certain circumstances -- through the urethra. Typically used for prostate resection in BPH. The tissue resection is done through a rigid tube 1/2" OD and 12" long. The technique is also for some prostate biopsies when the transrectal procedure wouldn't provide adequate access to the suspected tumor. Unfortunately, they usually use a transrectal ultrasound probe during the transurethral procedures too, so you don't win on either end. I assure you that the DRE is much, much less painful.

Roughly 1 in 6 men will end up with prostate cancer, so we have a fair chance of enjoying these intimate moments with a urologist.
