Eye On Boise

Abracadabra…

Scrolling through pent-up email after a week’s vacation, I was surprised to come upon this missive from the Idaho Attorney General’s office: “AGREEMENT REACHED TO ELIMINATE TOBACCO.”

Wow – I was only gone a week, and the lawyers found a way to make tobacco disappear? Not only that, as I read down through the press release, it was actually from the National Association of Attorneys General, and bore the names of the honorable attorneys general of Vermont, Indiana, Georgia and California. But after all those distinguished names and titles, the true topic emerged:

“Agreement reached to eliminate tobacco
advertising from school library editions of Time, Newsweek, People and Sports Illustrated”

Still significant, certainly, but much less miraculous…
