Re: anti-smoking letters of your last issue



I said what I had to say and I appreciate the Pattaya Mail allowing me the forum to do so. It is nice to know that there is at least one objective newspaper in Thailand, despite would be censors like Genebbb.  I won’t reply to Michael Nightingale’s letter because very honestly it merits no reply. As for GeneBBB the promoter of Science and censorship, I might remind him that sixty years ago scientists told us that dinosaurs had scaly skin. Now they are telling us that these same creatures have feathers. The thing about scientific reports is that all too often they are incomplete, much like the Surgeon General’s report on second hand smoke. But based on these last exchanges, it is now fairly clear to me that people will believe what they want to believe based on their agenda, so I would imagine that we smokers will have to continue to live with unfair taxation and people with a confused agenda.
