First the came for the smokers...

Then they came for me...

Well, it's been what...a year or two since NYC went smoke free. Remember how proud you felt during the whole debate, getting all up in here with the "Smoking stinks...we should ban it" and looking down your nose at the nicotine challeged. Well, to borrow a phrase from Christopher Guest in Waiting for Guffman - "You all are a bunch of bastard people".

Yes, that's what you are. By passing the smoking ban you enabled all these Nosey Parkers to start prying into every aspect of our lives. Exhibit number 1, Mayor Bloomberg is now getting his panties in a bunch over 'unhealthy' (read: tasty!) food. Thanks! It's only the beginging people and you have no one to blame but yourselves. Five years from now, as we sit snacking on Soylent Green, while wearing city issued organic gray jumpsuits, you'll have only yourself to blame.

(On a related note, this article induced such personal hysteria that I ordered TWO CASES of Girl Scout Cookies from one of my colleagues daughters today.)
