I will write more on 1947 in the next letter, but before I sign off, I want to respond to a couple of letters by Gretchen Van Pelt, who seems to think that smokers don't deserve any rights.

She says that smokers shouldn't have all the rights. Well lady, if smokers had all the rights, then they would be smoking anywhere they want to and they wouldn't have to go outside in all kinds of weather outside a business place just to light up.

It seems that not only do you have something against smokers, you also have something against people who back them up.

You made that pretty clear when you responded to my letter and you also responded to Stacy Cooper's letter just because we hold up for a legal product.

You claim you were in some place that caters to both smokers and non-smokers and still left smellin' like smoke.

Whose fault's that? I don't think it's theirs.

Until next time, from Snow Ellen and the Weddles, take care and be fair.

John Weddle,

Brazil
