Junkie 101

New York City banned smoking in bars and nightclubs four years ago, and imposes the highest cigarette taxes in the US. But if you’re a junkie, the city will spend $32,000 teaching you how to shoot up.

Are you suggesting that it was incorrect to ban smoking in public places? What does the heroin-for-dummies flyer have to do with nicotine addiction? You often take giant leaps with your logic that simply don't make any sense.

Your decision to link nicotine addiction to heroin addiction suggests that you feel the latter is the bigger plague. We know that nicotine is sold legally across the country. Which drug do you think kills more Canadians annually? Don't be obtuse.

I have a simple question for you. If anonymous comments are unwelcome, why do you allow them? Wouldn't that solve a lot of your problems? ( at least those problems that pertain to your blog)

You never insult anonymous commentors when they agree with your views.

"anon asks... If anonymous comments are unwelcome, why do you allow them?"

no, no, nonny... you obviously don't get it... it's deliberately hostile trolls that are unwelcome here.

fwiw... both my father & my wife's mother (both lifelong smokers ... aka tobacco junkies) died agonising deaths from lung cancer.

i'm likely the last person in the world who would advocate taking up smoking.

and, call me wacky... but "insulting people" who agree with me?

you must have some really interesting parties at your place if that's how you roll.
