Tempers of Passengers Ignited Over No-Smoking Regulations on Airlines

January 09, 1988

I am sick of tired of smokers crying for their rights to jeopardize their health! How about my rights not to have to fork out over $2,000 a year in medical insurance for my daughter and myself? And bear in mind a $1,000 deductible, which means we pay all our medical expense out of my thin pocket as a graduate student.

That money I could well use for something else is then used to pay for the care of coronary disease, strokes, lung cancer and emphysema that those turkeys have richly earned by their unhealthful practices.

I will be damned if I am going to shed tears over their inability to a few hours without a fix.
