Influence, special interest money, and the pajama clad journalists...

....the blogosphere is up in arms about the new threat of internet censorship.

Regular readers of the Attic will know of my tireless rants against the smoking ban legislation, and the special interest money used to lobby for such legislation.

Therefore, in the interest of full disclosure I vow to my vast readership that I have never taken a dime from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, nor the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Medical Association, American Non-Smoker's Rights Foundation etc., or any of the other special interest groups on the pharmaceutical nicotine payroll. I promise however, that if Robert Wood Johnson or any of the above special interest groups does line my pockets with a multi-million dollar "hush" contribution, I will resign my post as contributing editor of "the Attic" post-haste.

I know...I know...some of you would be so delighted in my resignation as to want to take up contributions toward that multi-million dollar offer yourselves.....And to that end, I affirm I am a capitalist, therefore, I will accept any and all multi-million dollar offers in exchange for my resignation; however I would be particularly pleased to have Mr. Robert Wood Johnson IV sign over that check, since his actions put me in the position I am today.

I am a little offended I wasn't asked to testify before Congress....but then I probably would have informed them of the St. Louis Park secondhand smoke test results which prove secondhand smoke levels in bars is 150 times safer than OSHA regulations. (probably not relevant)
