Irish eyes fuming over ban on butts


GALWAY, IRELAND -- The smoke of rebellion rose across Ireland as a handful of pubs vowed yesterday to keep breaking the government's ban on puffing tobacco in workplaces. Health Minister Micheal Martin promised to punish the owners of Fibber Magees, a Galway pub that was the first to rebel against the three-month-old ban, and any others joining the campaign.

"Martin's measure is a close copy of anti-smoking crackdowns in California and more than a dozen Canadian and U.S. cities."

Tourist's request: May we have a list of the "dirty dozen" or so, so that we can avoid them as destinations as we value something called "freedom of choice"?

They'll fry those bars with a backbone into complying by shutting them down with fines from Hell.

Got to be like the rest of the sheep, now...shades of 1984...
