Cigarette Century

December 2023
1min read

I smoke, and I have no driving desire to spend twenty-nine dollars per year to be preached at by some antismoking fanatic. I can get all I want of that, free, anywhere I go; I don’t have to pay for the privilege of being attacked in my own home. You have the right to publish whatever you want on that subject or any other, but I have the right to not pay for it or read it.

We hope you enjoy our work.
