| To this day tobacco
company lawyers fight like the devil in courtrooms to keep the 'secret'
and 'privileged' documents out of evidence because they’re
really smart lawyers and they
know the power of the truth and a jury. Come to think about it,
meddling with the truth for half a century and more, and lying about it.
deliberate spew has been dis-information, mis-information and outright
lies; ‘you can’t prove anything with statistics’,
‘there are so many
other factors in disease, genetics and viruses’, and ‘by
god, what we
need now to settle this controversy is some real research!’
Without a question however, their most puerile lie
has always been,
‘Nobody cares more than we’. I might add here that to
out of both sides of you mouth never constitutes telling the truth.
