    "Don't oppose e-cigarettes because they're safer"

    "One would think that anti-tobacco activists would welcome all this, but they don't for a simple reason: E-cigarettes are much too cigarette-y.

    The enemies of tobacco are against anything that resembles tobacco, including candy cigarettes and Big League Chew.

    "We must keep our youth from experimenting," said Tim McAfee, director of the CDC Office on Smoking and Health. The more popular the product becomes, the more suspiciously it is perceived.

    Reality deflection

    A spokesperson for the Food and Drug Administration, which wants to regulate e-cigarettes, said, "We don't want the public to perceive them as a safer alternative to cigarettes" -- a puzzling statement considering that is precisely what they are.

    Anti-smoking absolutists oppose e-cigarettes for the worst of reasons -- because they are safer. Their obstinacy makes their mission all the more difficult to achieve and to justify. It is hard to demonize something that means you little or no harm."
