Don't ban smoking.

The city of Philadelphia just passed a ban on smoking in public places. So the heard minded people around here were thinking of doing the same to make the air cleaner. There are a couple of problems with this idea. One is that people will continue smoking in their houses and thereby still polluting the air. Two is that we will still have factories and vehicles belching out such good stuff as carcinogens. And the common denominator of these problems is people. People also cause such problems as drive by shootings and suicide bombings. Therefore, in order to make our public places cleaner and safer don't ban smoking, ban people.
