    I visited my 81 year old mother this evening. She seemed concerned as she handed me a copy of an area cage liner, the "Lynn Haven Ledger", Vol. 2, No. 10 - May 13-May 27, 2010 - FREE. Lynn Haven is a town near where I live. I'd never heard of this rag of a 'newspaper' until this evening.

    So, anyway, on the front page of this rag, bottom half begins the story, which concludes on page 13. It features a photo of the grinning author and color photo of some PV I can't identify. To follow is the story verbatim. I don't suppose I should've been surprised by what I read, but I was anyway.
    Here's the site of the MD's place of business - Emerald Coast Research
    There's a link on that page from which you may contact them, should you feel motivated to do so.

    Is there a link to the cage liner? Being myself not articulate enough to properly impress the MDs I want to at least ask who was irresponsible enough to allow such tripe to be printed or something along those lines.

    nojoyet: I can't find a web site or email for the paper, and wouldn't be too surprised if that is because they don't have them. I DO have a telephone number listed to call for advertising rates ... don't know how much good that would do you. 850-271-1607

    Interesting, I just found what would probably be motivation for their stance on vaping. From their site, follow the link to the NEW Spring 2010 Newsletter, on page two, several entries regarding smoking cessation. It appears to me that they have a financial interest in people using the traditional methods of going tobacco free.

    aaa inaccurate. He also received a LONG message from me.
    I didn't swear once! I'm so proud of myself! :)

    I especially love that part "in fact". Yep, only 18 flavors to choose from. And all of them are delicious children's candies that will get the kids addicted to deadly nicotine! :rolleyes:
    I can make 18 flavors with just the crap I have laying around my house. There are thousands of flavors! I just noticed bone marrow and egg yolk tonight...gross.

    It's like he went to google and entered "e-cigs = bad" and copied and pasted random things from across the internet.

    I just googled the number for their sales office and came up with a residential listing. They must be running one heck of a business :lol:

    Google search shows that he is an internist specializing in pulmonary disease -- another financial interest in a morbid sort of way...

    That seems to me to be the best strategy. I know for certain that if I were the recipient, a profanity laced tirade wouldn't be as effective as a rational explanation of my objections. The latter casts a better light on our community as well.

    lulz, an asthma specialist warning about propyline glycol dangers is like a mechanic warning about the dangers of gasoline.

    idiot am confirmed and it's pretty obvious he's in BPs pocket.

    when is pg safe to inhale? when he writes a perscription for an asthma inhaler, when is it not safe? when he's not making a dime on the deal...

    WOW. I too do not think I have seen such repetitive hyperbole since I quit smoking. A pitiful article, and a discredit to the publication.

    Ahh, Elaine you are a True Pro!! Tactful beyond measure, I only wish I had your restraint. I think your true gift is not only your restraint but rather your ability to make excellent compelling points in a manner that often graciously invites the reader to agree with you. Does that make sense?
