This was simply a part of American life not long ago. If you opened the door
of any teacher's lounge in any school in America forty years ago, a cloud of
smoke came out. My grandfather, a high schol principal, would smoke a
Chesterfield at his desk while some poor lying kid pleaded his case prior to
the paddling.

I taught the book IN THE YEAR OF THE BOAR AND JACKIE ROBINSON to a fifth grade
class several years ago. The book takes place in 1947. The kids were able to
believe that a person wouldn't be allowed to do something do to the color of
their skin, but they absolutely freaked out when the father sent a ten year old
to the store to buy him some cigarettes!

Or student's bathroom. There was no way to go to the bathroom in High School
and not come out reeking of smoke. People that would ask permission to go to
the bathroom during class would get in trouble 'cause the teacher thought
they'd snuck out for a smoke, because there was somebody in there smoking at
all hourse the school was open. Finally, after I'd graduated, they actually
put in 'smoking' and 'non smoking' student bathrooms, just to give the non
smokers a place to breath.

Um . . . idiots.

So what?

Cocaine and opium and morphine were all legal before 1914 in the
United States. Marijuana was legal in the USA until 1937. There was
no national legal drinking age before 1984.

Schools were segregated before 1954. Interracial marriages were
banned in a number of states.

the world changes. 400,000 people will die this year because of
smoking.

Almost exactly the same time Sears got women to start shaving their underarms.
Coincidence? I think not!!

There's nothing like smoking rollies indoors, this
concept works wonders! In public they allow smoking,
you can't forever hold in your desire to smoke, this
stuff is as good as sex, and so is chocolate.
Mum smokes Choice Blue, while some obese person smokes
White Ox tobacco. This stuff isn't really that good, I'm
sticking to good old-fashioned Drum tobacco, namely Drum
Menthol, that's the stuff!
Mum used to smoke Escort, then she was smoking Longbeach,
the best cigarettes she has ever smoked is Horizon Purple.
But the best cigarettes ever are Davidoff Red (the king
size). This stuff is by far smooth, and it has a lot of t-
aste. :D
