"The only person who never makes a mistake is the person who never does anything."
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)
Keene Mayor Had Own Agenda:
That the mayor wanted to eliminate the competition is obvious and transparent.
Asthma Is NOT Caused By Smoking:
The Canadian Lung Association: pollens, fungus, molds, animal secretions, house dust mites, cold air...
Asthma And Obesity 'link':
The increase in childhood asthma may be explained by the rise in obesity, a US study has suggested.
We Are Everyday People:
The International Tobacco Growers' Association:
is the voice of thousands of tobacco farmers all over the world.

From The Mailbag:
It is perfectly legal for a restaurant to serve only Kosher food, just as it is perfectly legal for a restaurant to serve only non-Kosher food - in other words to cater to a certain segment of the population. Why shouldn't it be legal for a restaurant to cater to smokers?
Think about it - a person who keeps a Kosher home is not going to work in a non-Kosher restaurant. Why is that no different than a person who wishes to remain smoke free finding a job in a non-smoking restaurant?
Gibson recommended that Chicago's ban be repealed to end the court fight with the billboard industry here and save "several million dollars" in legal fees that the city might have to pay if the case were pressed. The full City Council is expected to follow the Buildings Committee's recommendation Oct. 31.
