rt/ ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS L1 (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 115 - NO. 27 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, JULY 8, 2011 $.30 A COPY Cain's Economic Vision: A JOB FOR EVERY HOME by Herman Cain I have developed many strategic plans for success throughout my 40 years of business experience, but the one I am about to present for the nation is the most hum- bling. Business strategic plans had to capture the keys to profitability and growth. This national eco- nomic vision must capture the keys to prosperity for everyone who has a desire to achieve their American dreams. It starts with education, then a job, and then a career. People who achieve "suc- cess" are able to get beyond day-to-day survival. They find a way to thrive, con- stantly looking for that next exciting opportunity. This thrive attitude can be re- kindled here in this great country, because we have the resources the ingenu ity and that spirit of America that has allowed us to sur vive during hard times, and thrive when times were better.

Reynolds Tobacco Co., Lorillard Tobacco Co., along with the National Association of Tobacco Outlets Inc., have filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Worcester over a city ban they argue violates freedom of speech rights by limiting how they can advertise a legal product. The citywide ban would prohibit any signs vis- ible from the street that advertise a specific brand of cigarettes. Stores would only be allowed to advertise that they sell cigarettes. Dan Jaffe from the Association of National Advertisers Inc., said, "You cannot make a product legal and then say no one can hear about it." Andrew Kerstein who is president of the Tobacco Outlets trade group added, "If we allow one city to get away with interpreting the Constitution of the United States in the way they want to, it will potentially have a domino effect." Proving this point is Professor Richard Daynard from Northeastern who is also president of the law school's Public Health Advo- cacy Institute who proclaimed, "As Worcester goes, so goes the nation -- maybe."
