10 Jan 2007 On Nancy Pelosi’s Smoking Ban
Posted at 23:54h in Blog
My take on Nancy Pelosi’s smoking ban:
Given that the Capitol police recently confiscated a well-wrapped peanut butter and jelly sandwich belonging to my six-year-old son, I am rather amazed smoking was simultaneously allowed in the Capitol.
I am not one for government-imposed smoking bans generally, seeing them as one Nanny State step from an ice-cream ban (which would affect me), but if my son can’t have wrapped food in a coat pocket in the Capitol, I see no particular reason why those bozos should be allowed to smoke.
