George Jonas has pretty much the exact same take on the Formula One leaving Montreal because of the tobacco ad ban that echoes my own take on it, last week (well, he didn't have fun encouraging kids to take up smoking, but that's besides the point).
Me, Steve Brandon, last week:
"But now all this has been taken away from me because some pussy activists get their panties in a knot over seeing the word "Marlboro" on the tail-fin of Michael Schumachers vehicle."
He, George Jonas, this week:
"The most rabid anti-tobacco activist doesn't seriously believe that people take up smoking because of the word "Marlboro" painted on the tail fin of a car."
Ah, it would be pretty cool if George Jonas did somehow find my blog on Google and paraphrase what I said, but I don't seriously think he did. I think the absurdity of the premise that "Marlboro" on a tail fin causes young people to take up smoking is patently obvious, so, like with Farnsworth, Zworykin and Baird, two great minds (ha ha) happened to have similar ideas at the same time.
