More smoking ban thoughts

The SC Times today had a LTE that posed the question, "why would a newspaper report the killing of kittens but not the daily killing of thousands by choice?"

Two can play this game...

One of the headlines on the Strib today "3 E-Coli cases in state raise wider worries."

It's a public health and safety issue indeed.

With the smoking ban issue being the hot topic, what about deaths caused by those 3 inch tobacco sticks?

Some data from the Center for Disease Control

22,720 cancers cases to be diagnosed annually in MN

9360 cancer deaths in MN

2380 deaths from lung cancer in MN

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.
