Two fingers holding nothing

A photo of the illustrator of Goodnight Moon has been digitally altered so that he is no longer holding a cigarette.

oh my gosh! are you NEVER writing anything again?!

my dad thinks it's fine that they took the cigarette out. my dad smokes--and is typical totally for tobacco and holds anti-smoking people (like me) in contempt... And when the postal service washed out jackson pollack's cigarette my dad was pretty mad... So I expected the same for this. ...But of course whatever I expect is never the case. So he said "for a children's book? that sounds, smart--it's a children's book after all." confusing. anyway I don't know what I think.
