Thu May 24 2001 10:49: There is a series of television and billboard ads featuring a large, bipedal crocodile who, in a political-cartoon turn of events, is clearly labelled "BIG TOBACCO". The ads would have you believe that this metaphorical crocodile is evil. But he doesn't look evil. He looks cute. He looks like Pogo's friend Albert. My suggestion: perhaps a Claymation alligator would look more evil than a pencil-drawing one. Or papier-maché.
