Thank you for smoking

June 24th
On this day in 1964 the Federal Trade Commission announced that all cigarette packs carry warning that state their harmful effects. This was among the first announcements to show that cigarettes were bad for the general populous, yet they are still legal. Why is that? The department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. That's why. Tobacco is big business and the government regulates it for a huge profit. Follow the money!

On this day in 2005 Tom Cruise showed he's just a crazy guy who makes movies when his personal views on psychiatry were broadcast to the world on the Today Show. Cruise had earlier in the year had his "couch jumping" moment with Oprah.

On this day in 1997 Disney pulled the debut album of the Insane Clown Posse off of shelves the day it was released because of content reasons. Point #1, why did Disney sign these guys in the first place, their lyrics are not family friendly to say the least. Point #2, why did anyone sign these guys. They suck more than words can describe. Only fat guys that wear "Big Dog" shirts and think that lyrics about raping corpses are funny would even buy this crap. Who am I to judge though, right?
