HELLO FRIENDS & CITIZENS: What is a responsible program of good health? For instance, can most of the authorities and news media promote and adver- tise the so called good points to tabacco, alcohol and gambling, without showing the potential addiction of same, the price in money, misery and death the above cost America. Can you put out a fire by adding fuels or inflamables? Yes, I smoke and if I/2 of what the American medical as- sociation says about tobacco is true, then I apoligize to the pub- lic for any influence I may be guilty of in this respect. For the record, I am 100% against addiction to all of the above. Check the records closely. Medication taken for influenze in January 1971 made cigarettes or tobacco taste so vile and nauseating that I easily stopped for 18 months. For sometime I have been trying to locate this, or a like medication and always wind up on a dead-end street. The medical authorities I've contacted say they don't know of such a thing. If not, why don't they get busy. If God is punishing me and the hurricanes are striking our and other areas, without hitting New Orleans and South Flo- rida, does that make me a mean' guy? Florala and Lockhart a place of the hadies and New Orleans and south Florida a place of the goodies? Beef and complain and ask questions - that's me. Dan McLeod PO. Box 103 Lockhart, Alabama P.S.
