Regarding the article Rutland hospital lifts ban on smoking:
I saw the article about the Rutland, Vt., hospital lifting its smoking ban. This is nothing more than once again rewarding the bad behavior of the smokers. Why didnt the city ticket them for littering if that is what they were doing? Instead they will once again be able to poison innocent nonsmokers who will have to share their habit with them.
