We remember being young and riding in our friends' parents GMC Safari with cigarette smoke choking us in the backseat. We hated it. We remember staying at a youth hostel in Nuremburg — watching the European soccer championship ten years ago — and while we were puffing on our own roll-me-own, our friend's secondhand smoke was burning our eyes. So it absolutely makes no sense to say that we're opposed to proposed California legislation that would ban smoking in cars containing children. Except for one thing: it's one more intrusion by the nanny state into people's lives. Frankly, if we're gonna get into this level of micromanagement, why don't we just start euthanizing people with low IQs? Screw killing all the lawyers. Let's start with the middle-managers.
