I saw a feature about the town of Westminster outlawing all tobacco sales in the town as a health measure. All those interviewed talked only of cigarettes, but the mayor had the best quote of all. She said she was saving lives because "we know half of those people who choose to smoke cigarettes are going to die." I've never smoked cigarettes but I might start because I'm pretty sure 100% of the rest of us are going to die. Apparently, unlike early Mass. settlers who started the Revolution or built Harvard, BC, and later MIT, the present residents care nothing for either fighting for their freedoms or to a higher education level and prefer stupidity in their elected officials and even more restrictions.
