I must also note that we come close on the latter.  Though you don't  
find the totally insane activist bullshit you find out in sunny CA  
--- nobody strapping themselves to lumber trees, spiking things,  
etc.  Two reasons:  mesquite doesn't make good lumber, only good BBQ,  
and it's an "alien" nuisance nonetheless --- and second that most of  
the possibles are too crunk (NOT a typo) on good tequila and hand- 
rolled cigarettes (tobacco?  sure, whatever...  maybe green tea,  
maybe something else...) to bother.

At least for now, until the smoking ban that was just passed goes  
into effect.  Then --- watch out!  All Hell breaks loose.  There's  
nothing like a mad hippy that can't get their nicotine / tequila  
crunk on at the local dive...  You ain't seen nothin' yet.



PS --- I forgot to mention in my anti-northern rants that --- well,  
c'mon, it's obvious --- you simply can't hold anyone credible who  
lives in a location where the average yearly temperature approaches  
freezing.  Complain that smokers don't get enough oxygen to the  
brain, sure --- but what about folks who live somewhere where the  
average yearly temp inhibits human circulation?  Give me a break,  
please...  Complain about heat --- yeah, it's uncomfortable, but it  
(a) encourages circulation, and (b) sweats out all those nasty  
pathogens and free radicals.  Common sense, people... please.  ;-) :-)
