Well, I’m a bit disappointed.
Earlier, I did a posting about how New Jersey was contemplating a bill that would ban smoking in parks and beaches. A few days ago, it was announced that Gov. Chris Christie vetoed the bill.
Here’s the article about the veto:
Christie vetoes limit on smoking in parks, beaches: Associated Press, Sept. 12
But as I’ve said – smoking can be a real fire hazard in parks and campsites (it’s been pretty dry out in the west this summer, by the way), and cigarette butts are a choking hazard for fish and wildlife. On top of that, all those stubbed-out cigarettes on the beach are pretty gross.
What do you think of the ban and the veto? Post your own comments below. (And keep it civil – if I see any trolls, I’m calling in the goats.)
