I'll See Your Anti-Smoking Law That Singles Out the Poor and Raise You One That Singles Out the Middle Class
One member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors Neighborhood Services Committee (phew!) decided that banning smoking at bus stops discriminated against the poor. So he came up with a solution. He decided the Committee should discriminate against wealthier people, too.
Lighting up on San Francisco’s public links has been par for the course for years, but soon golfers may have to put out the cigarettes, pipes and cigars.There's not a day that goes by that I don't wake up and smile at my good fortune not to live in or near San Francisco. More here.
The Board of Supervisors Neighborhood Services Committee passed a ban on smoking on The City’s five public courses on Monday. Supervisor Jake McGoldrick pushed for the ban after the same committee approved a ban on smoking at transit stops last week. McGoldrick said it would be wrong to approve a measure that he said largely affects The City’s working class, while not approving one that would that affects (sic) The City’s wealthier residents as well.
