Usually I ignore DeBoer and her strident anti-freedom cacophony, but today I woke up on the wrong side of the gutter. Then I read this piece of drivel.
Look, we already told you. Not interested.
Don't look, listen. Of course, that would mean that your grandiose ideology might be contaminated by thoughts of freedom, so maybe you'd be better off just keeping your fingers in your ears with the elevator music turned up.
In the seven years since local health commissioner Dr. David Grossman first mentioned a smoking ban, annual American Lung Association of Ohio data say 132,000 Buckeyes died of tobacco-related causes; $24 billion has been spent statewide for smoking-related health costs; the average Ohio household paid smoking-related taxes totaling $3,700 - and nearly 258,000 teens started smoking every day.
Oh, well, that's gospel. Add fatality figures from the Brady Bunch for gun control, the Gospel Group for anti-abortion and the Green Group for a clean ecology, then explain why we're all still alive.
The only thing worse than the Blade printing yellow trash like this is you being paid to write it. And speaking of being paid, now that smoking is against the law does that mean that all those average Ohio households will save $3700 on their tax bill over the next seven years?
