GUEST COLUMN: A perfect example of greed


I read the editorial in the Brainerd Dispatch called “The Deadly Truth” on the (Sept.) 27th. It pertained to the tobacco companies crying about how unfair it is for them to have to carry warnings about the deadly effects of their product on the human race on their own packaging. I think it shows us how deep greed runs in our society and what lengths people will go to make money. We as a society have to pay the price for the deadly effects of this product everyday.
