Oh no you didn’t!

I'm truly disgusted that you published an article, let alone a front-pager, that glorifies tobacco sales and use [“The Unusual Suspects,” July 10, Xpress]. Love, food, drink and music are gifts from our higher selves. I don't believe in whatever god you say brought tobacco.

It's time we as a society begin to see and speak of tobacco peddling and smoking for what they are: Drug pushing and assault with a deadly weapon, respectively.

The next whiff of secondhand smoke I catch, can I grab the offender's cancer stick, and shove it in his eye to put in out in my own self defense? Tobacco is a gift from God — really? It's a filthy, disgusting, "screw me and everybody else" habit.

Hey, nicotine addicts! E-cigs are here. Grow up and keep your drug of choice to yourself.

    Bravo for the born again non-smoker rants.

    I feel the same way about automobile exhaust, campfires, matches, oil lamps, wood stoves, fireplaces, incense, patchouli, sagey smudgey sticks, perfume, cologne, marijuana, “essential” oils, the new car smell and people who don’t bathe every day that I’m assaulted with when mixing with humanity.

    Oh yeah, when I smell meat cooking, I collapse on my fainting couch too.

    How’s the air quality up there in that ivory tower?
