I want to comment on the smoking issue. It makes me sick to see that those hypocrites can advertise beer on TV. Go in a restaurant and drink two or three beers and then walk out and drive home. But if we smoke, we're endangering people's lives. A man was seen in a Danville restaurant having three beers with his meal, in the presence of a woman and a small child, then walking out and getting into an automobile and driving off. Now how many cigarettes could he have smoked to get drunk enough to kill someone?
And they talk about a 75-cent tax on tobacco. There is a whole lot of my work that I just couldn't do without a cigarette. I like smoking, and if they do cut out tobacco, then I'll just try tree leaves or maybe corn stalks.
And this thing about kids smoking, they don't care how kids die as long as it isn't from smoking.
