Schwarzenegger brengt roken terug

Gouverneur Arnold Schwarzenegger, sigarenliefhebber, brengt roken terug in de regeringsgebouwen van anti-rokenstaat Californië: hij wil een sigarenbar installeren tijdens feestjes in de ‘Capitol’.

Het eerste feestje is gepland op Valentijnsdag…

Smoked out: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is embarking on his most risky and controversial campaign — he wants to bring smoking back to the Capitol. The Austrian Oak, who makes no secret of his love for fine cigars, is planning to turn his private outdoor patio into a cigar bar during parties. The first smoker event is scheduled for Valentine’s Day. It’s invitation only, with the guest list vetted for anti-smokers who might raise a stink. “There will be some people who complain, but they better get used to it,” a Capitol insider said.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question.

Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
