Cigs and Cows

A fine essay on why we North Americans go mad banning cigarettes as a precaution, yet continue to ignore (and evade) many more sensible precautionary steps we could take on the food chain or in the environment. And why Europe seems to take the exact opposite tack.

When we North Americans find out that smoking is bad for us, our inner Puritans rise to the challenge with a self-righteousness and commitment that we would never apply to heavy metals in the environment.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
