BTW, in case I've confused anybody: my assertion isn't that smoking
was the edge of some slippery slope. We're well down that slope
already. Smoking prohibition was, perhaps, the event horizon; the
last point at which we could turn back from this anti-freedom course
and salvage any meaningful notion of freedom. But we slipped past
that without even noticing.
So my further prediction, now that that's happened: enjoy the ride.
Or move. (But for some constraints, I would...)
