Thanks so much for the great coverage of the Nightingales' first action against the tobacco industry ("Nightingales vs. Big Tobacco," June). Nurses from all over the country have contacted us. We now have members in 25 states. We invite more nurses to tell the tobacco companies that it's not socially responsible to continue to promote products that kill 440,000 people a year in the United States alone. We are still welcoming activist nurses at http://www.nightingalesnurses.org.
