You're well into this capitalist bashing business, aren't you? In which
case, don't you realsie that the media is just another capitalist
institution, and they're all on the same side in the end, and no
newspaper is going to print the stuff you want people to hear. The
killer would be made out as a weak ineffectual individual, who couldn't
deal with his own life, not as some hugely heroic rebel in his last

Actually, it's just ocurred to me that I'm not entirely sure whether
you're anti-smoking or just anti-tobacco companies, or even both.
Please enlighten me.
