    Zealot at the SMH

    The following article may be of some interest:

    http://www.smh.com.au/business/weedi...215-1ow5g.html

    A lot of the comments seem pro-smoker or at least sympathetic to smokers. Perhaps the haters have gone too far again?

    Hi mad, glad you're back with us.

    Michael Pascoe comes over like a self righteous little darling does he not-agree that the comments were way more tolerant than the usual hate filled rants that we have come to expect whenever smokers are mentioned,

    Still a bit of the Us and Them overtone, which always infuriates me-(God i'd hate to work with people who think like that!)

    G'day Girt,

    Funny thing is some of these fools say they would never employ a smoker. My experience has been that smokers are usually the best workers, and a good boss never has a problem with a good worker - smoker or not.

    I however, would never employ a zealot.

    hahaha me neither,
    The best jokes, the most fun, the nicest people, are usually found around the ashtray.

    My ex-husband is a chef in the states. One very busy holiday season he actually took up smoking so he could get a smoke break. The only people who got breaks during busy times were the smokers.
