  • Don't need Council to take care of me

    Not only is it a lie that second-hand smoke is the third leading cause of death in the country, and not only is it a lie that 1,000 deaths in Kentucky resulted from second-hand smoke last year, not one person has ever died from second-hand smoke. Show me a coroner's report that says so.

    More precisely, if you review all the scientific studies of environmental tobacco smoke that have ever been completed, no significant scientific correlation between ETS and increased mortality can be shown.

  • A post-election prophecy

    Having just elected a governor who unashamedly ran on a platform of expanding gambling in the state of Kentucky, please allow me to make the following predictions:

    1) Within 12 months of the expansion of gambling in the state, whether it be a floating casino docked on the Ohio River, poker machines at truck stops, or expanded off-track betting facilities, the chapters of Gamblers Anonymous will increase significantly.

    2) Within six months of expanded gambling in the state, police sub-stations will begin to appear close to all major hubs of increased gambling.

  • On smoking ban

    I am so tired of reading the paper each week and it telling us that we can't smoke in public places. If you can't stand the smoke, keep your tails at home, inside a big balloon or something.

    So, now I'm saying ... what's worse, smoking in a restaurant or blowing your doggone nose at a table while I'm eating? That burns me up.

  • Justice ... For all or for some?

    Have you ever wondered if the judicial system honestly works like everyone makes it out to? Recent events that have happened to my family have made me have second thoughts about the system that officials say is suppose to "protect" me.

    These recent events have only caused problems for my family and I and have us thinking it protects the guilty more than the innocent.
