Chuckling over smoker’s comment
I got a chuckle out of the remark from a guy named Randy Walker quoted in the article about the smoking ban ("Bars hope smoking ban brings back customers," Dallas Voice, April 10).
He says he doesn’t smoke in his house or his car but does expect the privilege of smoking in a bar where other people must endure his second-hand smoke.
What’s up with that?
He doesn’t want his house or car to stink with his smoke, but I’m expected to bring his smoke smell back home with me?
Give me a break!
TO SEND A LETTER
We welcome letters from readers. Shorter letters are more likely to be printed, as are those that address only a single topic. On some weeks we receive more letters than we can print. In that case, we print a representative sample. Letters are subject to editing for length and clarity, but we attempt to maintain the writer’s substance and tone. Include your home address and a daytime phone number for verification. Send letters to the senior editor, preferably by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Letters also may be faxed (214-969-7271) or mailed (Dallas Voice, 4145 Travis St., Third Floor, Dallas, TX 72504).
