Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as Smokey the Stinkpot took steps to escalate a Cold War that's been brewing for weeks between the Smokers and Non Smokers at Our Favorite Starbucks.  Last Friday, Smokey deliberately removed the "No Smoking" sticker from his favorite table, lit-up a cigarette and blew smoke in the direction of a pregnant woman.  Today, mere hours after a team of Neighborhood Vigilantes replaced the sticker, Smokey removed it once again, this time hiding it on the back cover of a book he was reading.  His ruse didn't last long.  "You're breaking the law," said someone at a nearby table, "You need to put that cigarette out."  Reluctantly, Smokey took one last drag on his cigarette and left.  Speaking of Drag, he was replaced by none other than the Boy Named Sue, a Local Cross-Dresser who began frequenting Our Favorite Starbucks earlier this month.  Sue wore men's clothing today -- a blazer and slacks -- offset by a pair of Fuzzy Blue Slippers and a Large Red Purse.  "Sue" also smoked, but nobody said a word ...!

These weirdo-smoker-numbnut violators wouldn't last 5 seconds in my town (Santa Cruz, CA) not because they're weird (weirdness prevails here) but if you smoke in a public place they tie you up by your ankles, stuff a funnel into your ass and pour molten (organic) lead down it.

The first guy should have been arrested for simple assault, when he did that to the pregnant lady.  What a moron!

I am dead against smoking, but I am a bit confused that people moan about smoking next to a pregnant woman in the open air, where SUV's the size of tanks are driving by, causing far more pollution, not just to the local's but to the whole planet. As a humble European, America needs to get it's priorities right and BAN gas guzzlers and Major polluting cars and then, worry about someone in the open air having a quick puff.
I know many American's realise how bad your pollution record is and try in your own way to help the environment, so kick your government's arse into gear and do somethng about it.
Sorry guy's but as much as I hate smoking, next time your'e having your morning coffee, make a diary of all the gas guzzlers driving by, I bet you'll be shocked.
If you can, please prove me wrong
