Iowa Independent: Smoking ban veto would send winning message to rural Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Gov. Chet Culver won't veto the ill-conceived, anti-rural and
laughably hypocritical imposition of Prohibition-era busy-busybodying
ban on smoking in Iowa's taverns. bIn fact, two of Culver's top
spokespeople already are on record heralding this week`s passage of
the strict smoke ban that, of course, exempts the money-minting
casinos, but tells owners of bars in Audubon and Carroll and Storm
Lake and Denison, places often peopled with a majority of smokers, to
get health-club, celery stalk-sucking religion by July 1. Culver's
surrogates tell us to expect Iowa's Democratic governor to sign House
File 2212 next Tuesday amid much fanfare and here-heres.
