No Smoking...Outside!

The City Council of Calabasas, CA has just passed an ordinance that smoking is banned in all outdoor public areas including parks, sidwalks and outdoor businesses. WTF?

Look, I don't smoke. I can't stand the smell of smoke, even on a person. Frankly, it makes me want to hurl. As far as I'm concerned, with all the information we have today anyone still willing to ingest cigarette smoke into their body is a fool. But, hey, it's their body.

I have to say, though, that this law is complete idiocy. Outside? For crying out loud. You've got to be kidding me. Where does it end?

Hello? People are still going to smoke no matter what you do. Comedian Denis Leary once said that you could put the cigarettes in a black package with a skull and cross-bones on front and call them "Tumors" and people will still be lined up around the block to get their hands on those things.

This is government intrusion into personal lives gone amok. Shame on the citizens of Calabasas, CA for letting this happen.
