A heartfelt amen to the editorial writer who had the courage to proclaim against hysterical, health advocates the blunt ultimate statement: "WARNING: THE VERY ACT OF LIVING IS KNOWN TO BE DANGEROUS TO HEALTH."
I am reminded of a wall-hanging in an inn in Oberndorf, near Salzburg (translated in The Spectator (London), Aug. 6):
Half of mankind is done in
By alcohol and nicotine.
Yet, the rest, enjoying neither,
Does not live much longer either.
