The US Government took several actions twenty years ago today pertaining to regulating tobacco and researching how best to educate young people about the dangers of smoking.  I take a look at these, the 19th Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health, and my own experiences with smokers among my friends and family.

I also wanted to share a good web page of tips on how to quit, from MSNBC news anchor Keith Olbermann and his viewers. 

The Tobacco Timeline by Gene Borio was very useful to me as I prepared this podcast. 

The music for this episode is "Allmost There," by Father Rock.  Theme music was composed and performed by Marc Rose.
