Audrey Silk is Still Waging the Battle for Smokers' Rights
It's sorta' funny that a few decades ago this wouldn't be notable. Everyone smoked! What will the Future Audrey Silk wage their war for?
I decided to read one more of your archive just because I LOVE THE XMAS TREE story. This is funny. There is nothing like a true believer! Reminds me of a great experience from my past. Went on a technical sales trip to Phillip Morris in Richmond MANY YEARS AGO. Walked into this 60s era architecture building. Woman sittling at the greet desk, one of the larger desks I had ever seen. After the presentation it was clear we would NOT get the business. I asked the woman if there was ANY CHANCE I could obtain the sign she had on her desk. It was this big hunk of clear lucite with frosted letters on the front that said ENJOY SMOKING. She said no. Postscript after realizing that the name of the organization Audrey is involved with, I realized that is a band (The Clash) to post in a future Newsletter. It'll probably be Rock the Casbah
Did she really use the word "Screw" for her garden instead of the F-word? And, given her personality, it seems strange that she would moderate her language, especially since it's a garden in her own backyard.
I wish there were billions more people like Audrey Silk fighting for freedom!
I'm so excited my trash pile was featured this year!!! Thanks for the article, Anne.
