How sad. I have often wondered why left intellectuals have this absurd habit of defending smoking just out of spite. What a pathetic form of "nonconformism", advocating something that you know is wrong just because some of those on the other side (those who advocate what you know is good and right and reasonable) are ugly and stupid. Now that Hitchens, that fascist at heart, has come out against the smoking ban, veteran left-wingers like you have an excellent justification for supporting it - because as you know, the smoking ban are the right thing to do, the only rational and humanistic policy imaginable. Wouldn't you admit it?
