Kevin Salwen on Culture

There's an interesting pair of events that helped shape culture on this day in history, January 11.

In 1964, U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry issued the first government report saying smoking may be hazardous to one's health. It was the first of a series of blows to the tobacco industry that have helped the decline of smoking in our society. (To understand just how prevalent smoking was, check out the wonderful movie, Good Night, and Good Luck.)

And 100 years ago, Albert Hofmann was born (and is still alive). At the age of 43, he stumbled across a drug that would be known as LSD. How he found out its effects make for a good read.
