Considering all of this anti-smoking legislation is (supposedly) based upon health issues, will Maine be fining parents for feeding unhealthy food to anyone under the age of 18?

Josh, I promise you, it's only a matter of time. We're becoming Seinfeld's Bizzarro World.

EXAMPLE: It's unconstitutional and unforgiveable to intercept phone call patterns coming from Iran, Syria, or Iraq into the U.S. no matter the "greater good" is undoubtedly stopping a terrorist attack.

BUT....It's perfectably acceptable to outlaw the use of a perfectly legal product in a private building you must PAY to even enter so as to spare voluntary patrons the inconvenience of a smokey pillowcase.

The Society of Selfish People, better known as the "I-know-better-than-you gang", has designated two new targets, now that smoking almost a crime. The new targets are Fat People and Cell Phone Users, please watch for the newsletter concerning the two new targets and useful propaganda.

Just missing the list of targets: Semi Trucks. Organizers are hopeful that Semi Trucks will make the next list.
