Where there's smoke, there's apparently no fire
Have y'all gone soft? I write a piece encouraging the president of the United States to continue -- not quit -- smoking, and all I've heard are crickets. Even the comments, usually about as gentile as a cage match, were devoid of vitriol. If anything, folks took issue with the choice of drink. But I did get an insightful e-mail from a reader who confesses that he smokes "not at Boehner-like levels, but only at work."
I've found that if you go to the designated smoking areas that these are the last places in the U.S. that know no discrimination or organizational or class lines. And, it's amazing what gossip you pick up. (Also, it's my theory on why Jason Blair's fabrications at the NYTimes went uncovered for so long because he smoked with the top editor). For what it's worth, I'm giving you props on something so true and insightful.
Well, thanks! Now, let's see if it happens -- and if it works.
