    There are times when I want to resume this habit that I gave up over 30 years ago, just because it offends the people I find most offensive.

    I’m fantasizing about a contemporary neo-noir crime drama series featuring … Geez, I dunno if Hollyweird even has any actors nowadays masculine enough to fill the role … of a DGAF, Philip Marlowe-type private eye or bounty hunter who chain smokes, taking particular delight in doing so in “no smoking” areas, and in blowing clouds of smoke in snowflake faces.

      You’d probably have to get an Australian to play the role.

      Or maybe an Afrikaner, just to trigger all the right people. 😉

    Smoking didnt start killing anyone until after the 70’s. I wonder why people hate smokers so much. (Our society is also trying to exterminate cigar and pipe smokers, too)
