That’s right everyone, only three short months left before the real health threat of second-hand smoke will be reduced in Washington, DC.
And I mean health threat. To quote U.S. Surgeon General Richard H. Carmona:
“The scientific evidence is now indisputable: Secondhand smoke is not a mere annoyance. It is a serious health hazard that can lead to disease and premature death in children and nonsmoking adults.”
So all you lung-killers out there, moaning about you soon-to-be-lost endangerment of my life, I say Smoke Free DC shall not come a day too soon.
