I was watching 60 minutes tonight, before the Emmy’s (which I’m watching now and thinking about how I should take notes so I can blog about it tomorrow. My life is sad, I know). Andy Rooney always does a commentary about something at the end of 60 minutes and today he talked about cigarettes. Nothing too remarkable (you can read it in its entirety here) until he got to the end and said:
The inescapable fact that smoking causes lung cancer has obviously had a big effect on cigarette sales, but I think there’s another reason, too. We bought these Marlboros to have on my desk. This carton cost us $75. Who can afford to burn tobacco at those prices?
Emphasis mine. 75 dollars? Dang, where’d he buy those cigarettes?
