Tony Gwynn died on Monday from cancer. He was 54 and he died believing that his cancer was caused by over 30 years of chewing tobacco. This has caused more discussion about Major League Baseball banning tobacco. It sends a bad message to the kiddies. Quick question: What causes more disease and death, chewing tobacco or alcohol? Maybe MLB should stop taking all that advertising money from the beer companies. And maybe teams should consider eliminating beer sales at the ball park.  Fat chance.

    I’m a tobacco user — I smoke — and I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m a social outcast, someone more dangerous than a drug user or drug dealer. I belong behind bars. I know this. Having said that, my tobacco addiction has never prevented me from going to work, doing my job, paying my bills on time, raising my family and driving my car with relative ease. Maybe I’m simply a functioning smokeaholic?
