    I'm not a hypocrite. I *have* to drive so I can go to work. I'd
say a good 85% of people have to drive if they work outside the home.
No one has to smoke, period. Trust me, I know. I used to smoke two
packs a day (27 years ago). Now, if we could just get some clean fuels
we could clear up the exhaust problem but that'll take a while I think.
