Shame on NBC for its print advertisement for "Mirrors," an otherwise sensitive film. The ad proclaimed, "A secret is destroying her. Will any man pay the price for loving her?" So was she an alcoholic? A murderess? A vampire? No, she was a diabetic! We diabetics expend too much energy in keeping ourselves together for our lives to be used for titillation like this. And any man who has to "pay a price" for "love" is seeing the wrong kind of woman.
