Blogrollin' Friday: The Rest of the Story

It's been a few Fridays since we did a Blogrollin' one, so I'll remind you of the idea, due to PSoTD. Instead of posting the usual pictures of your cat (nothing against cats except that I don't care for them), we use Friday to highlight another blog we like. As PSoTD pointed out, it builds community.

So here it is: an almost new public health-oriented blog, The Rest of the Story. What story? The sordid story of Big Tobacco. Endlessly appalling and infuriating yet with the fascination of a horrible highway wreck. Here's the official announcement:
Announcing the launch of a new tobacco news blog entitled:
The Rest of the Story: Tobacco News Analysis and Commentary

This blog will provide analysis and commentary of current issues, research, events, and programs in tobacco control, with an eye towards revealing the full story behind the news and its overall significance to the public health practice of tobacco control.
Wednesday's top story was about "Kick Butts Day, a national day of youth advocacy on the tobacco issue run by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The Campaign is asking youths throughout the country to 'Stand Out, Speak Up, and Seize Control in the fight against Big Tobacco.' " Sounds pretty good. Now read The Rest of the Story.
