Smoking Cessation Stumbling In State Senate

Compromise and indecision characterize the State Senate's efforts to implement a smoking ban in Wisconsin workplaces - - now pushed to 2010, maybe.

Gov. Jim Doyle, who has warned that Wisconsin could become the "ashtray of the upper Midwest" through continued inaction relative to neighboring states, may sadly be proved correct.

Still: this is an important fight. Someday Wisconsin will see the light and stop lighting up, at least around people who do not want to breathe airborne carcinogens.

You can blame Democrats for this, namely Decker, Breske, and Krietlow. This little cat fight between them and Risser and Doyle should be front page news, but oddly, no one seems to pay any attention. Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
