Smoked out I

I would rather drop a quarter in the box to pick up a copy then give them an audience.

To the editor,

I echo the concerns raised in last week's letters about tobacco ads in your paper. I meant to write in last summer when the full-page ads started appearing every week. I'll bet they pay you guys really well. I'm familiar with tobacco companies' mob-like status in advertising circles from what I learned from my father's former career with Imperial Tobacco.

I would rather drop a quarter in the box to pick up a copy then give them my audience---or moreover a kid audience---for their loophole-finding marketing schemes.
