Report To Assail Hospital Over Children's Deaths:

This is the next chapter of the most profitable business enterprise America ever undertook: health activism.

Forces Smoking Humor

Help Fight Diseases:
And who better to fight for smokers' needs, than smokers !

Cigarette Ads From The Past:
Type "cigarettes" in the search box.

TWAB: We Write for the Right!:
Election Autopsy, Editorials and more.

Automakers Drop Ashtrays, Lighters From New Cars
Eliminating lighters and ashtrays as standard equipment on millions of cars also saves money for automakers, most who now sell optional "smoker's packages" for $15 to $100 for items once included with every new car. In the Odyssey and other Hondas, buyers can order an ash container that drops into cupholders and a lighter that pops into the socket now called a "power point."
