Just another Mainiac
Just wanted the give you kudos for the a good job capturing the festival in your photos and videos.
Nice to see common sense prevail in our state legislature.
The proposed bill was like telling an adult smoker to stand in the corner for a time out.
I agree with Ana Hicks, it's up to Maine Care to assist smokers in breaking the habit, not to toss them out without any help at all.
Didn't the state at one point receive millions of dollars in a suit against the tobacco companies, that was supposed to used for assistance programs to help smokers kick the habit?
Saviello's bill sort of ignored that all together, and was a waste of time and tax payers money as it was considered for debate. He should have researched whether it was even legal before wasting everyone's time and effort.
It really is time to stop trying to legislate behavior, much like the feel good legislation, "snow on the roof of my car bill", "turn on your headlights all the time bill".
With all the problems both nationally and locally, I really think the time should be spent on more pressing issues.
I had a good chuckle by jmyoungs comments :)
Being half witted as I can be sometimes, I sold all my winter clothing after hearing Al's statements about the planet heating up. Maybe I could have gotten Al to help me thaw out my pipes in the balmy sub zero temperatures, while I was dressed in my summer best :)
