Legal but arrogant

If this Benson & Hedges ad isn't enough to reinstitute your "Ads we can do without" section, I'll be very disappointed. This is obscenity in its rankest, cruelest manifestation. I will defend to the death the cancer-mongers' liberty to espouse their opinions. Smoking is legal. Desecrating the Statue of Liberty is legal. But is there no limit at all to the arrogance of these bastards?
