Smokers help reduce taxes for everyone else

Success - Article sent! close

In response to Bruce Handler's "Smoke and drive, but keep windows up" on June 22, I find it hard to believe that smoke from two cars ahead of you was coming in your window. I could see if his car was next to yours. I think it is all in your head -- just seeing somebody smoke makes you mad. Roll up your window!

If all the smokers quit, to please you, you would find something else to whine about. Perhaps skyrocketing taxes. The government would have to raise everybody's taxes (including yours) to make up the difference smokers pay on cigarettes.
