Okay, let's see if I have this right: Tobacco companies were forced to make anti-smoking ads. They were forced to put them on TV. The ads aimed at kids worked. A New Zealand study found, however, ads aimed at parents showed a link to kids thought smoking wasn't as dangerous. Could it be because the ads weren't aimed at the teens, perhaps, but at the people who are always telling them what to do? The people who won't ever let them have any fun? The people who track their kids' movements with GPS and Internet companies? And it's the tobacco companies' fault that kids rebel against their parents and do what their parents tell them not to do?

Is it the tobacco companies fault that kids have sex? Drive fast? Raid their parents' liquor cabinets? Spend too much time on the cell phone? Surf porn on their computer?

Or could it be that teens are rebellious?

Nah! Then there wouldn't be anyone to sue!
