Interesting. The New York Times documents a big shift in spending from fighting tobacco to fighting obesity. Makes sense. There are more fat people than smokers.

But ... I wonder if the shift — along with the diversion of tobacco settlement money by cash-strapped states to general purposes and tobacco companies' unabated marketing — spell a growth curve for tobacco use in years ahead.
