Smoking restrictions are plain nonsense

Regarding the April 30 story “Smoking restrictions set to expand,” our Burbank City Council and inept Police Department don’t have anything better to do for the betterment of our community than this?

The so-called ills from secondhand smoke are nonsense, and is as ridiculous as people saying that President Obama wasn’t born in this country. It is the folly, and a headline grabber, that made Henry Waxman famous. Well, his 15 minutes of fame are up.

As a condo owner, no one or no city is going to tell me what I can or cannot do in my home or balcony or patio.

When is enough going to be enough when it comes to political correctness? How can governments not want to pay for anything anymore, yet feel they still can tell you what to do?
