Celebrate Diversity . . . [Peter Kirsanow]
except veterans, small-business owners, practicing Catholics, gun owners, talk-radio listeners, tea-party attendees, Texans, smokers, limited-government proponents, pro-lifers, taxpayers, NASCAR fans, Boy Scouts, oil-company employees, secure-border advocates, capitalists, global-warming agnostics, Cuban refugees, school-choicers . . .
My nanny-state note: I do NOT feel bad for smokers. At all. Actually, when I see one I sort of want to go vomit on my shoes, because really, they are killing themselves and making their lungs (and other organs) unusable for others. I know many smokers, and I love them (I mean, come on, I'm in the theater, lots of smokers), but come on!
UPDATE: Upon re-reading that I realized it didn't make a lot of sense. So let's just say this--hate the smoke, lover the smokers. But the habit still really makes me want to shake people and whack them upside the head.
