cigars expose others to the deadliest of side-stream smoke. Some of us don't go near the British Bankers club since they started their cigar den and patio. People have had strokes and died from breathing the lethal fumes. Next we have to try to dodge all the tobacco addicts outside of the businesses and restaurants in the parking lots and library entrance and roll up our car windows when others are hanging their cigarettes out of the car. It is against the law to throw the lighted objects out of a moving car but their smoke can choke. We have President Obalmy and the Governor as nicotine addicts. Does the Gov still have the tent he had to erect outside so he and his cronies could get their fix and run the state? Ban all smoke everywhere!

Smokers, actual human beings, are always welcome. It is their nasty little friends, the little sticks of nicotine laced tobacco, that are not welcome. Let us not confuse the drug with the person.
