in a world where you could be sitting at your office desk, and have one lit sitting in the ash tray, then when that one goes out, you light another one and put it in the ash tray, that makes sense.

maybe he had a clause with CNN that allowed him to smoke in his office because he was the King, but yeah, in today's environment, it takes a lot of work to smoke just 1 pack in a day.

I suspect that Phil Hartman's character on News Radio was modeled after Larry King. he'd be doing his radio show from the sound booth, and it would basically be a hot box of cigarette smoke.
His heart surgery happened in 1987, so there's that [emoji38]
