It's about time! Finally someone is doing exactly what needs to be done. Let's wish them 100% success.
We are currently trying to find out how to contact the attorneys and see if there is anything we and similar groups can do to support their effort. It certainly deserves it.
If their suit succeeds we may even be able to overturn Skip Humphrey's deal here in Minnesota!

If you follow the news it's getting ridiculous. As usual, it's all about money. Not only are attorneys general suing the tobacco industry, there is all sorts of in-fighting within the states as to who gets to keep it.
Now Big Cities want in on the gold rush! At this rate pretty soon every anti-smoker will want a million or two for themselves.
And in St. Louis a case is before the court in which 50 county hospitals want a piece of the action, contending that "to be shut out now could block them from pursuing their own claims against Big Tobacco."
Ha! Unless they are smokers they have no taste at all of what it's like to be "shut out."
"Greed is good!" has become the national mantra.
