I think you should ban attractive young people from smoking. Only out of shape, overweight and ugly people should be allowed to smoke. What message does it send young girls when they see a model smoking? Also, obese people should be banned from wearing shirts that expose their midriff. It sends the same bad "this is ok" message.

.... "but simply hiding the products makes little sense."

I'm not so sure, for instance doesn't this next sentence make you want at treat...."Will the Krispy Kremes be next?" And how much more would you want a Krispy Kreme if it was right under your nose? Or a four color 2'X 4'poster of a Krispy Kreme right behind the counter...."Mmmm, doughnuts, uuuggzzhhh..."

This sounds goofy enough that we will probably soon be voting on this in ND too.

Perhaps it would serve the city of New York to hide the mayor. ;)
