I enjoyed your site, and I have a question. I used to work for a company called Franklin Life. For a time it was owned by American Brands, which was a tobacco company. I had heard that someone wrote a letter to Mad, pointing out the irony of a tobacco company owning a life insurance company. I'd like to get a copy of the MAD with this letter, but I don't know what issue it is. It would have to be in the 1980's or late 1970's. Can you point me in the right direction?


Thanks to alert Mad reader, Tom, for finding these letters to the editor in issue #282, October 1988.
