Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday ! You've Killed More People Than Alcohol, Automobiles, Gangs and Adolf Hitler Combined!.

This "birthday card" was sent to the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company by a group of school students. The front of the card has the words "Happy Birthday!! scrawled around a picture of a birthday cake with ten cigarette "candles." The inside of the card says,

"Happy Birthday!!! You've killed more people than alcohol, automobiles, gangs, and Adolph Hitler combined!!!"

The card is signed by approximately 35-40 young people, who also included messages like, "You killed my Grandpa," "Smoking stinks," "I hate drugs" and "I have asthma! Stop the smoke! Please!"
