I am happy to see that our city fathers have seen to approve another law that protects us from ourselves. Are they going to hire 20 more police officers to enforce this ridiculous law? Will smokers have to carry a tape measure to determine the exact place where they should stand when smoking? At 20 feet from any city building, they will have to do their smoking in a parking place. Maybe our city fathers could spend $100,000 to put down a paint strip around all city buildings at 20 feet. It could echo the money spent on bicycle paths downtown, which, as of today, I have yet to see a bicycle rider use.
