Some of the world's worst industrial toxins and carcinogens are in typical cigarettes (in secret from consumers)...yet the Senate ignores this. Senate also ignores the fact that a typical cig may not contain any tobacco at all...yet they (and others) insist on calling it a "tobacco" problem. What's UP? That smell is not just smoke.
The Boston Globe willfully omitted reports about huge demonstrations in NYC (20.000+) and Italy (1.5 million!) against the US plans to attack Iraq. This made me realize that I have to get my news elsewhere. My reasons are outlined in more detail in this letter to the editor, mailed 10/9/2002.
