The terrorists have won


Per the St. Louis County Board of Election Commissioners ...

ST. LOUIS COUNTY-PROPOSITION N
**PROHIBITION OF SMOKING**
(Vote for ) 1
(WITH 479 OF 480 PRECINCTS COUNTED 99.79%)
YES . . . . . . . . . . . . 89,405 65.39
NO. . . . . . . . . . . . . 47,313 34.61


Over to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ...

The vote means that smoke-free legislation approved by St. Louis aldermen — which was contingent on a similar proposal passing in the county — will also become law.


And back to the Election Board ...

KIRKWOOD-PROPOSITION 1
**PROHIBITION OF SMOKING**
(Vote for ) 1
(WITH 15 OF 15 PRECINCTS COUNTED)
YES . . . . . . . . . . . . 4,628 65.24
NO. . . . . . . . . . . . . 2,466 34.76


Just this one time, I find myself moved to quote George W. Bush: "We'll smoke'em out."

[Note: This post has been edited -- something I don't usually do except for fixing spelling errors, issuing clearly marked updateds, etc. one. It originally appeared with photos of 9/11 carnage next to each bullet point. The sentiment is correct (like al Qaeda, the supporters of smoking bans are backward superstitionists who impose their medieval moral preferences on others through terror and violence), but ... just too over the top - KN@PPSTER]
