Success and fame Introduction This double topic deals with success, something we are all keen to have in our lives and fame, something many of us are not.

Emphasis on the electronic here–Molly Lattner, a 17-year-old senior at Briarwood, says she’s never seen a person her age smoking a regular tobacco cigarette.
