    Re: “Tobacco tax stinks” [May 25 issue]

    When people kill other people, they have to pay. When your cigarette industry kills people, like my husband, and so many dear friends, it has to pay.

    Maybe now, with the new cigarette tax, fewer kids will become addicted and Medicare won’t go broke.

    Canada figured it out years ago. At least, we’re getting smart.
