We were down at the pool as a family. This is your typical "apartment pool" on a warm summer evening, meaning there were a lot of kids, some teenagers and a good number of adults around the pool. A surprising number of the teens and adults were smoking. The entire pool area smelled of cigarette smoke. All of the children at the pool were certainly getting a message about smoking by watching all these teens and adults doing it. Which got me wondering why, in an environment like that where there are known to be lots of young kids around, are people allowed to smoke? If Joe Camel influenced children to smoke, it seems even more likely that living human models would have an even larger effect.
