I also have 2 teenage sons, do not support smoking, have had family
members die of lung cancer and many other arguments you have given but I
can never support censorship that changes a moment in history. If they
would of chosen a photograph of Pollock without the cigarette, that
would be fine by me, but to airbrush out the image, I can't accept.

What if they were to airbrush our a part of the painting itself,
something that they also found not appropriate or not politically

Can't we still appreciate the work even if we can't condone the life
