Excuse me, I ordered a Zima, not emphysema
In a story you'll probably read about tomorrow in the local organ, Kennesaw, a small town about 30 miles west of Atlanta, is considering banning smoking in public parks. This is the same city that, in 1982, passed an ordinance requiring heads of households to own a gun.
Kennesaw is a one of the more conservative hamlets in one of the country's most conservative counties (home to Newt Gingrich), yet the local government is as invasive as the Berkeley City Council.
I wonder: will it be legal to shoot someone in Kennesaw if they smoke on your property?
