No Ifs, Ands, or Butts!
I had dinner with a couple of old friends last night (can you believe we can actually say that now?). Cliff and Jas have been friends since EVER SINCE and back in the day we were all pretty geeky. Today, we are still wanna-be-change/fix/make-the-world-a-better-placers, but with children. Cliff had an awesome idea that I want to totally piggy-back on and enlist supporters for.
He needs legislators, citizens, people in hifaluten powerful places to support legislation to ban smoking in restaurants. Cliff has all the details, but I thought I'd help get it started by posting it on the blogosphere. We're starting up a blog too later, but for now, he'd like to get a group of supporters together.
I agree with them that it's about time we join the rest of the literate and intelligent world and protect our kids and family from second hand smoke. I was in Hawaii this summer, and they in the P.I. Both places ban smoking in restaurants, bars, and some public places.
I think the people of the CNMI are not so selfish that they'd deny what's obviously best for everyone's health. What do you think?
