Smoke Them If You Got'em

"Can you give me a light, we don't have much time left?"

The Harpoville Post reports that it's not coming down to if you do or if you don't but, where you can or where you can't. At the stroke of midnight the chance of getting a stroke will diminish as the axe falls on those who'd like to head out for a drink and a smoke. The drink, help yourself, the smoke, that's another matter. But, that's what's the matter.

The Harpoville Post has learned that it's not a given, quite yet, that smoking ain't going to win you any friends in high places of even low brow bars that are already feeling the pinch from the lack of patrons with a pack on the table and an ashtray full of butts, they're just slowly going the way of the DoDo. Though it seems the government feels the need to deposit it's 2 cents once again to underline the message that's isn't getting absorbed as well as they'd like it, that smoking kills and costs the Canadian Government Billions of dollars every year in lost time and hospital costs.

The Harpoville Post reports that it seems it's the Quebec population that's the slowest to heed the message. The saying, 'Quebecer's smoke like it's a cure for cancer', has got to hurt when this smoking ban sweeps that province tonight and the $300. fines will fly fast and furious until it does sink in. Because, as we all know, whether we've been smokers or not, the hardest part of saying goodbye is just letting go.
