Furthermore if he consults with any electrical engineer, he will be told that the electricity used to build these monstrous machines will never be replaced or renewed by these machines!

A fund-raising "smoker" to be hosted by Pasadena Mayor Bill Paparian on the Rose Bowl's turf tonight has health advocates, school officials and some residents all fired up. But the mayor says the debate over the event--at which participants are to pay $110 each to smoke cigars from 6 to 8 p.m.--only has made it more popular. "The 'controversy' has increased popularity beyond original expectations," said Paparian, who expects more than 50 people to show up.
