I don't think it's that simple, either. You will never be able to point
to person's "C" and "D", becuase they will, by definition, be people
who's lives where (because of *your* memes) *unaffected* by tObacco.
But there are millions of people already who's lifes are like that. So
it is the teeming crowds that you are saving, Tony, not individual (i.e.
specific) people.
