WATCH WHAT YOU SAY

You will recall the gentleman our government is prosecuting for holding up a NO WAR FOR OIL sign in a ‘no-protest zone.’ In a similar vein, there’s this action against Greenpeace.

WATCH WHAT YOU BREATHE

Excerpted from Anchorage Daily News, November 26, 2003:

HOMER, AK — A local businessman who had just finished testifying against a proposed smokefree ordinance collapsed with a heart attack in the council chambers and could not be revived.

Robert Keys, a former smoker, told a packed city council meeting that he sat at a table of smokers every morning for coffee and conversation at a local restaurant without trouble. “It hasn’t bothered my health any,” Keys testified. . . . Keys returned to his seat in the council chambers. Less than five minutes later, gasping noises from Keys interrupted further testimony. . . . Attempts to resuscitate [him] en route to the hospital were unsuccessful.

“It’s a shocking, horrible tragedy,” said Annette Marley, who attended Monday’s meeting for the Homer Alliance for Fresh Air. “We can’t make a causal relationship between his being around smokers and his death, but we know you have a 30 percent higher risk of dying of chronic heart disease if you’re a nonsmoker exposed to smoke in the workplace.”
