stay on target

1 February, 2014

Mr P. J. SMITH: […] I have a seven-year-old son and when he plays cowboys and indians he always stops for a mock smoke. That is the he-man image; it is the influence of television. However, I notice that John Wayne and some of the cowboy stars died of lung cancer.

Mr Crane: Does your son roll his own?

Mr P. J. SMITH: Sometimes he pretends to. He is also a Star Wars fan and I noticed that Luke Skywalker does not smoke, so that when my son is running around fighting Darth Vader he does not smoke either.

Mr Court: He plays with nuclear weapons.

Mr P. J. SMITH: Yes, but we will stick to cigarettes for the time being.
