Thanks for Telling Us

“Ferrysburg City Council is currently considering a ban on smoking, which would forbid people from doing so ‘everywhere there is a business, workplace (or) public space,’ said City Manager Craig Bessinger.

“Smoking, however, would still be allowed at restaurant or bars, and the ordinance would not regulate people’s private use, such as in their cars or when they are outside, Bessinger said.” (Grand Haven Tribune, p. 1, Tuesday, August 22, 2006).

Sign of the times: local government having to make clear that they will not control our personal lives.
