Smoking Ban Likely for Houston?

According to this story in today’s Houston Chronicle.

The city fathers (and mothers) are so worried about secondhand smoke’s effect on the public at large. Before they even THINK about banning smoking, what about banning drinking? In clubs and bars? Because heaven knows, alcohol kills a heck of a lot of people. And quite a few of them “second hand,” if you know what I mean.

Why is alcohol such a sacred cow? If pot or cigarettes or any other substance killed every day in the way that alcohol does (and I won’t even go into the physical effects of it; I’m just focusing on drunk drivers here), it would have been banned so fast your head would spin.

I’m just sayin.
