Are things like this still issued?
I've never smoked and I've never seen anything like it before.
Do they just rely on the horrible warnings on the outside of the packets now?

It rather fascinates me that all of these cigarette brands are ranked by their tar content. This was published in 1986 and I wonder if things have changed in the 20+ years since its publication. Are tar levels lower or the same?

Lunch Time

Okay, so I realise that my imagination is wholly willing to go off on flights of fancy at the merest provocation, but really I just want to know what these notes are. I want to know who the Baron is.
Or maybe I'd just like to know a Baron.
That would actually be quite cool. "Hi, this is my friend The Baron". Which makes me come over all Maria from The Sound of Music. There was a Baron in that wasn't there? As well as all the nuns of course.
And, are the ninth floor only allowed lunch on a Monday and Tuesday?
That first person under the Guest part has a really long name. Were his/her parents just really indecisive?
Oh and why did some people get crossed off? Were they bad and starved?
I have so many questions, always so many questions.
And so few answers.
