Bloomberg On Smoking, Part 2

"If you really intellectually start thinking about it, we protect people from hurting themselves, if they're trying to jump off a bridge we restrain them. Should you really do it with smoking? We're not gonna do it with smoking. Our job is to inform people and then let them make decisions based on the risks that they want to take and the way they want to live their lives. And we shouldn’t be telling you how to do that." - Michael Bloomberg, claiming that he's not looking to ban smoking itself. He's just made it illegal to smoke anywhere in New York City. Like on the sidewalks. In Times Square. At the beach. In parks. In bars and restaurants. And soon, in your own homes, the final frontier of Bloomberg's campaign.
