I smoke cigarettes. I know its not healthy. I know the risks and the warnings. I dont smoke in other peoples homes if they dont want me to and if a building is smoke free...I smoke outside...but...BUT....good god almighty...outside is OUTSIDE! The air is free. Now someone has taken things just a tad bit too far in my opinion. Our hospital went smoke free last april. Goody for them. I wont be going to the hospital for anything now anyway. I refuse. I will die here at home before I step one foot in there. Today I went to take my oldest to the mall which is across the street....actually across three streets from the hospital but some of the doctors have offices adjacent to the mall. And what do I see in the parking lot? A big huge banner stating Tobacco Free in April 2008! Yes...No kidding...I couldnt believe my eyes! In a mall parking lot...and it has the hospitals logo on it! Oh some of the hospital employees park over there and they get a shuttle to the hospital. Big whoop. So they think they can mandate that the rest of the human race cant smoke legal cigarettes in the parking lot? Oh I think not!
