*hugs to aj*

you're not offending anyone. if you don't have strong opinions, ya might as well be dead.

and shit, i'd probably still be smoking if i hadn't gotten sick. I certainly don't think I'm better than anyone else because i don't smoke anymore.

I might be a special case, coz i went from being a smoker to getting very sick because of smoking and then doing a 180 and totally hating it. but i was still smoking when the ban started up here in California, and while people bitched about it...i think a lot of smokers just went with it. By the tim...

I know we're all spread out across the country/world/universe and all, but here in SF we have this guy Dan Leone who writes a fantastic food column about greasy spoons called "Cheap Eats".
