Quote of the Week:

    The anti-smoking zealots essentially want to shut the industry. Trial
    lawyers see the tobacco companies as a huge pot of gold.  Politicians
    see them as fabulous punching bags. The press portrays the story as a
    struggle of good and evil, barely questioning anti-smoking
    rhetoric. Hardly anyone in this informal coalition of intolerance even
    senses that freedom is an issue.

          I'm tired of Love, I'm still more tired of Rhyme;
          But Money brings me pleasure all the time.
