We all have the right to choose!

Regarding the failure of the city council to pass a smokefree
ordinance for Ketchikan, I had the following idea. A friend gave
me some new perfume for Christmas. It smells something like how
the Oakland Raiders' locker room would smell after a hard-fought
game which went into double-overtime, particularly if during
the last twenty minutes of the game the players had been carrying
weasels in their pants. Many people have told me that they hate
to be around it, but it's my personal choice to wear it. I think
I'll start attending city council meetings regularly and spraying
this all around my chair. I've become addicted to it, so I'll
have to reapply frequently throughout the meetings. If a cloud
of it drifts up front and the council members don't enjoy breathing
it as much as I do, they could always get up and move. Or they
could exercise their right to hold their meetings elsewhere.
Whatever. We all have the right to choose!
