Parrish, who had defended Philip Morris on the "MacNeil - Lehrer News Hour" and other news programs, used to be a lawyer at Shook, Hardy and Bacon, a Kansas law firm that has represented the company in numerous tobacco liability cases. As an in-house lawyer for Philip Morris, he worked on the Rose Cipollone case, a landmark liability case at the cigarette company's loss, but later won on appeal. (NYT 8/28/95) Not long after he started working for Philip Morris, Steven Parrish, then 40 years old, highly educated, well to do, surprised himself by taking up smoking. Experts say almost no one starts smoking so late in life. So why did Parrish? It wasn't from anxiety or curiosity or the pressures of the new job, he says. In fact, He struggles to explain it. "There are times when I like fiddling with a cigarette before I even light it. There are times when I like to see the smoke go up. I like the sensation in the back of my throat. Sort of all those things. I don't know. I have never really thought about it, I guess." (Washington Post National Weekly Edition, January 13, 1997, pg. 9)
