That has been happening for years.
You just don't hear about it because, unlike drunk drivers, they do not cause accidents.

And lets not forget people who look at the ashtray while driving or light a cigarette while driving, and then crash. Or the nosy people who can't keep their eyes on the road.

As of yet, there is no blood test to see how much cell phone usage you've done while driving, or how much you've argued, debated or flirted while driving.

Anyway, I think the cigarette mascots dying off are good campaigns in themselves against tobacco usage. The anti-smoking ads that they were running for a couple of years there were quite effective..."It started with my big toe, and then they had to amputate my whole leg, and then the other. I just regret I started smoking...." And one country was requiring graphic images to be placed on cigarette packages, so you get to see a mouth of nasty teeth or some pics of lung cancer.

72 is a pretty long life. If you read Topix (and I think you do) cellphones kill more people than guns! My guess is the Marlboro Man had a cellphone. Maybe a gun would have saved him?

I started driving in the early 60's. The norm for a sixteen year old was as follows:

1. We didn't have seat belts yet.

2. We normally had a beer in one hand.

3. We had a cigarette in the other hand.

4. If you were lucky, you had a blonde on your lap.

5. You could still shift the Hurst 4 speed.

I don't recall that many accidents back then. I live in a sleepy village now and it looks like a Demolition Derby here because of cellphones. The worst one was seeing a guy texting while driving a Harley in stop and go traffic. Be honest old timers. Remember having sex while driving?

We old guys used to see signs above the urinals:

"Please don't drop your cigarette butts inside the urinal!"

"It makes them soggy and hard to light!"

Yeah, just for the halibut. I quit smoking to reduce the creosote buildup, and I eat more salmon for the omega-3 fatty acids and the bones have a nice crunch.
I guess Harley Davidson will have to ride solo.

I myself used to be a strict vegetarian.....I started eating seafood because of living in western Europe. Octopus, Calamari, Salmon, Sardinias (they are big), Mussels, Clams, and a whole bunch of fish I never recognized.

My friends asked me if I had a problem with the metal Mercury. This metal normally stays residual inside of even fresh seafood.

I grew up in the 50's with asbestos, lead paint, DDT mosquito fogging in our neighborhood, and Nutting eber happened tu me.... I used to play with the mercury in the syringes with my buddies behind the dentist's office. I would put drops in my hand and wonder why there was a metal that was liquid at room temperature! It was kinda salty, not like asbestos or lead paint.

Remember "Granny" on the 60's show, "Beverly Hillbillies?" I think her name was Irene Ryan. During a commercial break she would say, "Winston Tastes Good Like a Cigarette Should Oughta!"

That would be impossible now!

Who will be the marijuana mascot? Should we trot out the stereotypical Jamaican Rasta Spleef Man? Or maybe Obama can fill that role, "Mr. Prez sez its safer than booze and cigs, please don't tell Michelle, she bitch slaps me when I even look at bacon". Perhaps a big purple dinosaur, Purple Haze in a daze, pass the dutchie on the left hand side. Or we could select a woman, maybe Hillary "Cankles" Clinton, she can take a big puff with Billy and yell, in her shrill voice, "What does it matter!"
Can I start legally growing it now? I have a bit of a green thumb.

Lived to the age of 72? Not bad, I have known non-smokers who died of strokes, heart attacks, and cancer who did not live near that long.
