Can't they both lose? Ohio tobacco fight



It's a far from edifying legal fight even by recent Ohio standards, but hard to keep from watching: Will state lawmakers succeed in grabbing funds originating in the 1998 multi-state tobacco settlement for general-revenue purposes? Or, alternatively, will the now-dissolved Ohio Tobacco Prevention Foundation get away with handing the $190 million over to the nationwide American Legacy Foundation, the better to keep hectoring smokers and vilifying tobacco execs with? A prominent role is played by now-disgraced state AG Marc Dann, so you know to expect the worst [Toledo Blade, Canton Repository]
