He appeared to have a good life. I loved his character on Hogans Heros. Amazing from the article he kissed over 20,000 women on famly feud and one of the women he kissed who he didn't know he married ten years later.

Regardless of the facts in this case, anti-smoking extremists will claim the death of anyone who ever smoked even one drag from a cigarette died of smoking.

I don't quite understand the point of that argument Nareed. He was a known smoker.

The point is that there are people who have never touched a cigarette who die from lung cancer, and people who smoke a long time and die of something that may or may not have been caused by smoking, cause is not always clear in these things. There is an anti smoking agenda that leads to blaming nicotine for maybe more deaths than it really causes by blaming all of these marginal or unclear cases on smoking.

They are just jealous of all the other health benefits that you get from smoking cigarettes.

In the DC area the DC government has opted for scare tactics in their current anti-smoking campaign. You should see these things!

I understand that argument 100%.

But when people says things like "Oh, the anti-smoking activitists, blah blah blah" isn't that just a way to distract the conversation from the real argument?

Fact - Richard Dawson smoked
Fact - Richard Dawson had a cancer that can be caused by smoking
Logical Conclusion - Richard Dawson's cancer could have been caused by smoking

Just pointing out a logical fallacy in someone's argument, that's all...
