Stacy’s Future Is Grim

Scenes from Stacy’s future:

We sat there in the casino and burned a stogie when Kevin, Stacy and I went to Vegas. For all I don’t mind the very occasional stogie, the thought of being so chained to any habit that I’m going through ritual abuse over it is worse than withdrawal.

Also stupid are public policies that seek people doing ‘sinful’ things like smoking for abuse. You jack the taxes, and people quit, and revenue goes to ash. Governments behave as though stupid policy is nicotine.

    On the upside, Smitty, the next time Stacy interviews Santorum he can just cough up a wad of black phlegm and make Rick feel like he’s right at home back in the old coal town.

    The Führer thanks you from the grave:
    Hitler was a Leftist Hitler’s Anti-Tobacco Campaign
    One particularly vile individual, Karl Astel — upstanding president of Jena University, poisonous anti-Semite, euthanasia fanatic, SS officer, war criminal and tobacco-free Germany enthusiast — liked to walk up to smokers and tear cigarettes from their unsuspecting mouths. (He committed suicide when the war ended, more through disappointment than fear of hanging.) It comes as little surprise to discover that the phrase “passive smoking” (Passivrauchen) was coined not by contemporary American admen, but by Fritz Lickint, the author of the magisterial 1100-page Tabak und Organismus (“Tobacco and the Organism”), which was produced in collaboration with the German AntiTobacco League.
