    Pretty nice piece. E-smoking is at least mentioned and the foibles of SmokingEverywhere's spokesperson spread out for all to read.

    Still, good writing and food for thought. Note: This was slow to come up when I checked it.

    I like how he gets at the nutty thinking-- don't smoke 'cause its bad for you, but please do smoke so The Children have insurance. (Because, of course, unlike every other developed country the US treats health care as a privilege rather than a right.)

    When nicotine is in a corporate-made gum or patch it is called a powerful "medicine". When it is in a cig it is a "drug".

    If it is flavored... Oh! The Children Are Being Seduced!

    But flavored vodka... 'tis ok, I guess. Never heard anything about that.

    I guess adults have no taste buds...only the children like things that taste nice.... We are all into tofu and brussel sprouts.

    I have a real pet peeve about fruit flavored nicorette gum. Packaged in blister packs like regular old gum. Boxed in bulk--highly OD-able Now that's safe.

    Didn't the line: Smoking Everywhere said it's "pretty sure" e-cigs are safe.
    Come from the CNN piece on e-cigs? Funny how that line is getting so much traction.
