I was looking at the paper the other day and I noticed a "brief" about gasoline prices. They are all listed as . . for example . . $3.16 per gallon. But the actual price is $3.169 per gallon. Which is, effictevely, $3.17 per gallon. So why do the media lie to us. If it's $3.16 that's one thing. But if it's really $3.17 per gallon, then why not tell us? Damn them.
O.K. Change of topics.
This is about the small percentage of people who still smoke. Now, truth be told, I smoked for 33 years. I smoked heavily. 3 to 4 packs a day. I always try to slack that off by saying I had an ashtray on my desk and a lot of those cigarettes just burned out in the ashtray.
But, truth be told, I smoked a lot of cigarettes. And some dope. Though not much of that.
But now, after 20 years of not smoking, I can afford to become self-righteous. I see people smoking . . not often . . but men and women with a cigarette in their hand while they're driving . . and I think . . "don't they know what they're doing?"
I think I want to become one of those LOUD performers who try to tell smokers to quit.
But I won't.
They'll just have to learn on their own.
If they do.
Before they . . . .
