“There comes a time in the life of every human when he or she must decide to risk "his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor" on an outcome dubious. Those who fail the challenge are merely overgrown children, can never be anything else.”     Robert A. Heinlein,    Stranger in a Strange Land

Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Smoking bans to get extended — Los Angeles wants to ban smoking on outdoor patios. Here’s the justification:

“We have an opportunity, folks, to extend and continue the great fight to get people out of the habit of smoking, to continue to protect the public health, which is really one of our main focuses and our responsibilities,”

One wonders… In the state of California, why don’t they just make cigarettes illegal? Why beat around the bush?

  2. You know, this type of appeal to emotion sounds exactly like the “temperance” nonsense that got alcohol prohibition passed 90 years ago. I guess that worked out so well, we want to repeat it.
