I've just been over to John Banzhaf's ASH website to see if he's said anything particuarly insane since the last time I visited and I see he is now claiming that ASH is 'America's first antismoking and nonsmokers' rights organization'.
This happens to be something I know a bit about. So let's see...
The Anti-Tobacco League was formed in Massachusetts in 1850.
The Anti-Cigarette League was formed in Chicago in 1899.
The Nonsmokers Protective League was formed in New York in 1911.
Action on Smoking and Health was formed in 1968.
Now, I pick my words carefully when dealing with this notoriously litigious individual, but let me say loud and clear that John Banzhaf is a liar.
Sue me, fatso.
