Lung Cancer

A coworker of the Complete and Total Loser learned recently that his mother has lung cancer. About 75 percent of lung cancer victims are dead in two years. Is his coworker upset? Sure. Has he quit smoking? Nope. Has the Loser said, "You really should quit smoking"
No. He's proud of himself for not saying that.
But he should.
Eric Lawson died Jan. 10 at his California home. The cause was respiratory failure due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. The ruggedly handsome Lawson portrayed the smoking cowboy in Marlboro print ads from 1978 to 1981. He also had bit parts in such TV shows as Baretta and Charlie's Angels before injuries sustained on the set of a Western film ended his acting career. A smoker since age 14, Lawson later appeared in an anti-smoking commercial that parodied the Marlboro Man and an Entertainment Tonight segment to discuss the negative effects of smoking.
