...dalton mcguinty has announced that government-operated casinos willl be permitted to have smoking rooms. even the big oil companies are envious of this level of blatant hypocrisy.

this is an absolute outrage, whether you're a smoker, non-smoker, liberal, conservative or simply believe in the democratic process and basic honesty and fairness.

bring this government down, and quickly. this insults us all.

That's so stupid. I mean, I smoke and can see the hypocrisy in that. Politicians for the most part are such dummies. They're always trying to please the people that give or make them money instead of just doing the right thing and sticking with it.

Hey Jeff, even I am gonna pass on this one!

Like David, I live in Ontario too. It's just that I can't get wound up over such stories anymore.

I mean, like what else is new? Eh?

After a while you just get numb. It's nice to see someone else wake up and smell the coffee, though. Misery loves company, I guess. David's right that this is a non-partisan issue.

I predict things will stand, however. Those that smoke and go to casinos will be happy. Those that don't smoke and go to casinos won't even notice - have you heard the stories of folks wearing adult diapers so they don't have to leave their favourite slot machine? If the smell of passive smoke bothers you try stale urine... :eek:

Those that wish to smoke and go to clubs will continue to be ignored. Those that don't smoke will be happy in the clubs, if a little lonely amongst the mostly empty tables.

Me, as I've said I haven't smoked in years but I don't go to clubs much anymore. My music is classic (geezer?) rock but I'm sick of the same old set lists that play little that I actually listened to when in my formative years.

I've been raiding EBay for vinyl that I play on my tube stereo receiver. I've got enough Janis, Jimi, April Wine, Perth County, Fairport Convention, Moxy, Cactus, Frank Marino, Sonny Terry, Crowbar/Biscuit, Poco, Lightfoot, Stan Rogers (never his brother Garnet!), Firesign Theatre and lots more to last me until I'm "...six feet under! Pushin' up wheat for the hungry!"

The world goes where it will and crankin' won't change it. Just remember that there's no law forcing you to always follow.:zzz:

They're both damn good, but Garnet at his worst beast Stan at his best any day! :p

As far as the Casino Smoking thing goes, it surprises me not in the least...

I went to the same elementary school as Stan. He was a couple of years ahead and I guess Garnet was a few behind me.

I give no opinion on their talent. It's just that as I saw either of them in the years after I found Stan to be a more compatible personality. I felt much more comfortable in Stan's presence on a personal level...

We all fit better with some folks than others...

You might find it hard to believe but some folks actually find ME abrasive!:eek:
