So Tennessee's ill-conceived and poorly-written smoking ban took effect yesterday. The law was sold, as these things often are, as being "for the children". The Guv has let some real motives slip in interviews and statements, however: it seems he's concerned about my health. He thinks I should use this ban as a chance to quit.
Hey, Phil, if I decided to take up setting myself on fire tomorrow, arguably even more hazardous to my health than smoking, it would still be none of your damn business.
