Yes. In fact, I am coming close to saying I won't post any more tobacco ads unless they are really striking looking (which I think the painting for this one is). I believe we're at the point where nearly everyone knows someone who has been harmed by tobacco. As a product, it just doesn't have the warm fuzzy feeling that others do.

You're right. Unless it is just a really unappealing ad, I'll probably keep putting them up. Goodness knows there's no shortage of them.:)
