Hostage of Tobacco

Some thoughts on the report of Robert Polhill's cancerous larynx. Unfortunately, this man has been, as millions are, held hostage by the tobacco industry.

If this isn't terrorist activity, what is it? Just a business, they say.

The terrorists group that kidnaped Robert Polhill released him, safe and alive.

Can the tobacco people assure him the same?
