Everything that's wrong with America II

Read this interesting little snippet in an Associated Press piece that ran in today's Inquirer:

TRENTON - A group lobbying to extend New Jersey's indoor smoking ban to Atlantic City casinos released a study yesterday showing dramatically cleaner air in taverns and restaurants since the state barred patrons from lighting up.

Indoor air quality improved more than 90 percent in bars, restaurants and bowling alleys after New Jersey banned smoking in public places April 15, according to results of air-monitoring tests presented by New Jersey GASP (Group Against Smoking Pollution).

Dear New Jersey Group Against Smoking Pollution, or NAMBLA,

I hearby bestow upon you the 2006 Captain Obvious Medal. Are you really that friggin' stupid to think that people will fall for your bullshit? Think about it; this is what your study says:
The air is cleaner in a smoke-free bar than in a smoke-filled bar.
Seriously, did you spend money on this? Time? Christ, I hope not.
On an unrelated note, however, I have results of a study I recently conducted to share with you: Every last one of you is a dipshit.
