Via Gene Healy comes news of a Baton Rouge smoking ban that threatens a year in jail for lighting up even outside public buildings if you haven't gone at least 25 feet before you take that first puff. Among the more depressing items here: "No smokers stepped forward to talk against the proposal." In the immortal words of Mugatu, doesn't anyone notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
