Joseph in Palacios, you are so correct. The obesity epidemic in America is horrible, but here is the difference. If a person wants to lead an unhealthy lifestyle and weigh 300, 400, 500 pounds, it is unfortunate, but they are not hurting anyone but themselves. However, when smokers light up, they are holding the rest of us who choose not to smoke, hostage to their filthy habit. Is that really fair to the rest of us? By the way, I am nowhere near being overweight.

Many didn't eat very well then either.
How do you like those gas prices now? Way to go Murphy's Express! Keep those gas prices down.
