88. I'm sorry about your mom. My dad died of lung cancer, actually.
Camel Unfiltereds, because 'real men' didn't smoke the ones with filters. There is no doubt in my mind as to what killed him.

I think consenting adults should be able to make their own decisions about what they put in their bodies. But I also think it's reasonable to tax things like cigarettes, and alcohol, that have quantifiable societal health costs. If that means we should tax HFCS and trans fats as well, hey, go for it.
