Suck down the last sickly sweet puffs of your precious Warm Winter Toffee Camels, kids, because as of today, flavored cigarettes are illegal in America... Tobacco is nasty. It's supposed to be nasty.

The Jones'ing Libertarian From the rooftops of Rational Review (the "premier libertarian web journal"), Ayn R. Key recalls the good old days: "Back when I was a smoker, I considered clove cigarettes to be a rare and special treat that I would indulge in once a month. Those things had a flavor that cannot be believed (if you're a smoker). This is ... unbelievable, even for someone who always expects the worst of government."
