| Public letter to The Smoker's Club and you the readers... By Brett Mauser. You are our last hope. Not just for smokers, but for every citizen in this country. Something must be done. And you are in the position to do that something. Our freedoms, our liberties have long been under attack. But for the last several months, there has been a direct assault on everything this country's founding fathers believed and held sacred.|
A Challenge to ND's Antismokers: By Michael J. McFadden. Is Deede telling the truth? There’s a very simple test: Deede should push to have Fargo’s smoking ban rescinded and thereby prove the truth of her statement to the rest of North Dakota, as the state would watch Fargo’s restaurants, bars and everyone else continue to ban smoking on their own without the law. On the other hand, if she’s NOT telling the truth, then she’ll resist any efforts to rescind smoking bans because she knows full well just how unpopular they actually are. So how about it, Ms. Deede? Care to stand behind your words? Or were you just blowing smoke?
