Batman vs. tobacco

Klamath Falls, Ore. – A super hero is taking on the dangers of smoking in Klamath Falls…

“My name is Batman, and I’m here to warn the citizens of Klamath Falls of a grave, evil danger that lurks in their city.”

That danger……… tobacco.

“Are you from Klamath Falls?’  ‘Wherever Batman’s from, is where I’m from.”

The caped crusader is armed with a plastic bag………..and statistics.

“The state average is 16% for tobacco usage.”  Noted Batman.  “We’re at 21%.  I’d like to see us beat that.”

The Dark Knight began picking up cigarette butts at the courthouse Wednesday.

“How long do you plan on doing it?’  “Until it’s done.  The whole downtown.”

While the Batman usually works alone………you can help him……by quitting smoking.

While the true identity of The Batman is a closely guarded secret……….it’s rumored that his alter ego is that of a mild-mannered, retired Klamath Falls physician.
