Quote Of The Day: >HACK!< Edition
fact demonstrate that there is
overwhelming evidence to support
most of the government's allegation
[that tobacco companies violated
federal racketeering laws by
defrauding the public on the dangers
of tobacco]" (WSJ)
U.S. Judge Gladys Kessler
One featured player: A pathologist from one of the Dakotas who couldn't tell the difference between a dead smoker's and a dead non-smoker's lungs. Must have been the only blind pathologist in the nation.
Kessler didn't force the tobacco companies to fund smoker cessation programs, which is just fine with me. Just about every smoker in America today who is young enough to still want to quit is old enough to have known quite well what smoking's risks were before they started.
