Letters to the Editor

I'm just wondering what is up with the tobacco advertising (nameless, smokeless tobacco) in this past weeks Coast. I know that advertisers pay your bills and are the reason that i get your great paper FREE every week but ...... i thought tobacco advertising was very out of fashion (i'm surprised you're even permitted to do so).

I'm not even especially anti-tobacco really, but that particular ad jumped out at me as obviously targeting a "particular demographic". Any comments?
