What About Kissing Girls That Smoke?

The Surgeon General issued a report on second hand smoke yesterday that was over the top. Yeah, being locked in a room of smoke for a week might cause a problem, but the extremes to which the report went were silly: "There is no safe level of secondhand smoke, and even brief exposure can cause harm," the report concluded. He made it sound as if walking by someone who is smoking may make you fall dead of cancer within the next 10 steps. Somebody's got an agenda to ban smoking from every building, public or private, in the nation. Heaven forbid for the market place to decide where smoking is allowed.
