Harper's Editor Lewis Lapham, when asked to give up smoking by Ralph Nader in exchange for $21,000 worth of Harper's subscriptions, refused on the basis that "I wouldn't want to sell out my principles or my belief in individual freedom for money." Translation: "$21,000 is a small price to pay for my two-pack-a-day habit."
