    HONG KONG (AP) -- A Chinese anti-smoking activist has brought his unorthodox methods to Hong Kong, snatching cigarettes from unsuspecting locals in an office district, a newspaper reported Sunday.

    Zhang Yue spent Saturday spreading the word on the ills of smoking in the Wan Chai district, Ming Pao Daily News reported Sunday.

    The paper ran a picture of Zhang snatching a cigarette from the mouth of an elderly man.

    The 44-year-old native of Luoyang in central Henan province was inspired to activism by the death of his 26-year-old sister from brain cancer, an illness he suspects was caused by inhaling their father's smoke, Ming Pao reported.

    The report said he has visited 69 mainland cities in the past three years, snatching cigarettes from smokers, and his travels have left him in heavy debt.

    A little known side effect from 2nd hand smoke is temporary insanity.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
