Here’s a stomach-churner we decided shouldn’t wait till after our news page summer break. Jane DeVille-Almond, Healthist paragon of Great Britain, proclaimed her prescription for the “care” of tobacco smokers on live radio in June. Smokers who have not accepted Healthist doctrine that they must abstain always and forever simply are not worth any trouble or

particular. Undoubtedly Jane, the lovely and slim gal, has divined the Final Solution for fat men too, very simple and effective: once all
that nasty hairy flesh gets put six feet under it decomposes on its own!
One fine day the world may be populated exclusively by a Master Race of Jane DeVille-Almond clones. We suppose that’s what she’s shooting for anyway. Of course, there are those who find her not in the least sweet, lovely, or adorable. A few perspectives below.
