There Goes the Neighborhood

News Item:
A 76-year-old man claiming to be a doctor, went door-to-door in a Florida neighborhood offering free breast exams, and was charged with sexually assaulting two women who accepted the offer, police said on Thursday. One woman became suspicious after the man asked her to remove all her clothes and began conducting a purported genital exam without donning rubber gloves, investigators said. At least two women, both in their 30s, let him into their homes and he fondled and sexually assaulted them, the investigators said.
So, I guess the guy was 1 for 2 in the breast exam area? He only lost out on the second one after she "became suspicious" because he wasn't wearing rubber gloves? It seems as though he was pretty close to pulling that one off, too - so to speak.
Am I missing something, or is there a big opportunity out there for door-to-door breast examinations? Would I answer the door and accept a woman into my home if she promised to give me a free testicular cancer screening? Maybe, unless she was 76 years old and was not wearing rubber gloves. I'm sorry, but I can't get over the fact that apparently, the rubber gloves were his biggest impedement toward realizing his dream.
There are 143,500,000 women in the United States, so I suppose it is asking a lot to think that two of them would be smart enough not to let a 76-year old man into their home to give them a breast examination. Of course, on the other hand, what are the odds that out of that many people, this guy could find two who would let him into their home for such a thing? Although, after all, he was carrying a black bag, so that may have dereased his odds a little. It's just that I thought we had progressed as a society enough to have accomplished at least two things:
1 - We have provided ample opportunities for the fondling of women that, if you so desire, there are women who will allow you to do so without repercussion, and you are free to seek them out.
2 - Women, in the privacy of their homes, were raised intelligently enough to not allow a stranger into their home to fondle them, rubber gloves notwithstanding.
Once again, society has failed me.

I had to read this twice just to make sure i was seeing correctly. All i have to say about these women is WTF???

I wont even let the cable guy in unless he has a badge and ive made the call to the cable company. Im certainly not going to let some creepy wrinkly man in to give me a free breast exam. Nooooooo!

Exactly. But I guess he was "lucky" enough to pick out 2 people who would let him in. And when I think of how tough it is to get a stinkin' phone number from a girl...
