Bleeding Heartland: 10 ways for smokers to stop whining about the smoking ban

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Over at Iowa Independent, Douglas Burns has put up another post
complaining about the tough bill on public smoking that the
legislature adopted earlier this month. Burns offers 10 ways to deal
with the smoking ban which, in his words, will introduce "a radical
cultural change in many shot-and-a-beer, small-town taverns that dot
the Iowa landscape." One of his suggestions is: "2. Take your anger
out on Gov. Chet Culver, Big Brother Democrats and Turncoat
Republicans…" I've got 10 suggestions for the smokers like Burns who
feel oppressed by "effete urban Iowans" (which isn't even accurate, if
you look at the list of legislators who voted for this bill): 1. Quit
using that "what will they ban next, fast food?" analogy.
