"It makes no difference if I burn my bridges - I never retreat."
Fiorello LaGuardia, New York City mayor (1882-1947).

Cities 'As Dangerous As Smoking':
"It seems reasonable, based on what we already know. And it fits in with the difference between life expectancy between lower and higher income groups."

The Sham Behind The Science Behind The Tobacco Warnings:
It exposes how bureaucrats corrupted the machinery of government and impugned the integrity of science to force into law the new regulations.


Less Smoking, More Fighting:
Inmates at Dallas County jails are fighting over cold turkey, and it's not the leftovers from Thanksgiving.

Farm Official Backs Tobacco Program:
Moore, a Kentucky farmer, said the tobacco industry is in the midst of change. Nowhere is that more evident than in tobacco marketing.

Tobacco Industry Denies Hiding Risk:
Defense attorneys say the case has no legal basis, noting that federal appeals courts have ruled that third-party plaintiffs are too remote to seek damages.

Newsflashes:
FOREST News Page

News From Israel:
"I'm supposed to move aside when they throw explosive bottles and rocks at me !!!"

We Are Everyday People:

Jeff Rense:
The World's Most Unique News Service

'Fat tsar' To Wean Scots Off Fast Food: ... to wean Scotland's obese population off their fat-soaked, deep-fried, vegetable-shunning Caledonian cuisine.


Gulf War Illnesses Still Studied:
A Pentagon-sponsored study raises the possibility that some of the undiagnosed illnesses reported by Gulf War veterans could be explained by their exposure to low levels of Iraqi nerve gas.

The Ballad of Al Gore

From The Mailbag:

Traveling in Japan? Japan's struggling Hokkaido International Airlines on December 1st revoked its in-flight smoking ban in an attempt to attract more customers and boost profits (AP).

Rothmans, Benson & Hedges Inc. announced it will no longer sponsor the "Symphony of Fire" firework displays held in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver each year, nor the Toronto International Film Festival, due to Federal restrictions on advertising and sponsorship that came into effect October 2000 (National Post).

"If the Democrats wanted Gore to be president, they should have voted for impeachment."
~~ The Wall Street Journal
