I think it's good that the Wiki has an article on smoking, because it was a common habit at the time. And in a sense, it tells us something about the characters--they may tend to smoke when they are anxious, for example. In the case of Sam Evans, who smokes both cigarettes and a pipe (which looks to me like an old Kaywoodie), the pipe makes him seem more scholarly, artistic, and generally "wise." However, I think we should revise the article so that it doesn't preach; sure, smoking is a bad habit, but it's really just part of late 1960's culture. So saying that it's "horrid," to me, seems a bit un-historical. I'm for maintaining a high level of intellectual honesty. Hope this remark doesn't offend. I'm not just going to re-write the article without asking respectfully for others' opinions, which is why I'm writing this talk page. Thanks to all who have already contributed to the original article!
