Smoking follow-up

Our recent cover story on smoking in the Planet drew a nice mention in my buddy Chris Roush's Talking Biz News, part of his Carolina Business News Initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Folks 'round Tampa Bay may remember Roush from his days at the St. Petersburg Times or the Tampa Tribune's business news section. Business-types may remember him better from his tenure at BusinessWeek magazine.

I remember him best for the many times we played hooky from the newsroom to sneak out to spring training baseball games.
