I don't smoke, but this anti-smoking witchhunt is getting out of hand. I'll bet you that an absolute majority of the anti-smoking lobby consists of boozers, people who eat more than some small nations, child-porn fans and other major vices. In other words: they themselves aren't as clean as they wish to make out. A bit like the McCarthy-crew, actually.

I somewhat agree with having smoking banned from cartoons. For the naive mind of a little child, it might indeed seem as a bad influence for which the kid will get the idea that smoking is OK.

However, I would only consider a ban on smoking cartoon characters during times when kids are most likely to be watching.

Since Boomerang shows cartoons 24/7, perhaps I might say that after 9 p.m. they could show classic cartoons completely uncut, including 'Fritz The Cat', and that other cartoon where Donald Duck is getting a blow job.

I rarely go on Yahoo messenger.
I use MSN most of the time, so you could try reaching me there instead.

I think I got it to add you (Lisser gave me your handle yesterday). I think. I'm not real familiar with MSN Messenger Live. If it didn't go through for whatever reason, my handle is in the signature of my posts. :-)

Smoking advertising is done everywhere. The companies are certainly trying to market to kids, because they are the next generation of smokers.

Banning smoking from cartoons may be going a bit too far, but it really won't change anything, because kids see people smoking every day, which in itself is advertising.
