So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Kiss me, I don't smoke

Today is the Great American Smoke Out sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

If you're a smoker, today is an excellent day to decide to give it up for good. My dad stopped smoking when I was a child because my doctor determined the secondhand smoke was causing my allergy problems. He did it for me. My mother-in-law quit smoking in honor of her late grandfather. Do it for someone you love - which should be yourself!

According to a previous US Surgeon General's report on the health consequences of involuntary smoking, three important conclusions about secondhand smoke were reached:
1)Involuntary smoking causes disease, including lung cancer, in healthy nonsmokers.
2)When compared with the children of nonsmoking parents, children of parents who smoke have more frequent respiratory infections, more respiratory symptoms, and slower development of lung function as the lung matures.
3)Separating smokers and non-smokers within the same air space may reduce, but does not eliminate, the exposure of nonsmokers to secondhand smoke.

This is one way to get the message across.

But, this is more my speed.
