i don't smoke and don't endorse smoking, and certainly don't endorse big tobacco, but this really doesn't seem like such a bad campaign to me. i mean, haven't we put them through enough? don't they deserve at least SOME opportunity to survive as a company through positive marketing?

Anyone who starts smoking in modern times is a pretty dumb person, given all we know about it and what it does to your body.

Ha! This just in: Rolling Stone are still worthless pricks.

Yeah fucking right they didn't know the Camel add would be next to their stupid "indie rock universe" thing. Advertisers pay extra for placement. Rolling Stone has sucked for years and years but now they've branched out into spitting in the face of journalistic ethics.
