I don't think a little second-hand smoke is necessarily harmful. I agree that the dose is the poison.

BUT...I'm glad that as a non-smoker, more and more pubic spaces are becoming smoke-free zones.

Many smokers believe they have the right to foul the air that others are breathing. This is just inconsiderate and rude. So, it looks like we need backhanded legislation to get people to be simply be considerate.


Hey Dan,

Yeah, I've smoked mebbe 8 cigarettes in my entire life. Can't stand the habit or the smoke. I just don't like the nanny-state, ever encroaching into our lives, with scare tactics, promulgated under the cloak of science. B.S.

The risks of smoking are now known. We oughta give smokers a little space to do their thing.

But, yes, always considerate, never rude.




If you don't watch out you could be reincarnated as a scientist.

Oy vey.
