They better ban campfires and beach parties too while they are at it ....

Idiots.

Yes, by all means let's defend our God-given right to strew the landscape with cigarette butts!

After all, those filter tips will biodegrade in, oh, about 6 or 8 months - what's the problem?

One argument for the beach ban goes like this: Cigarette butts are a major source of litter. On cleanup days, volunteers say they pick up an average of more than 300,000 butts along the beach. If so, that's a powerful argument — but against littering, not against smoking.

I disagree. It's a great argument for banning smoking AND littering.

. . . defend every grain of sand along the 1,100-mile coastline against cigarette litter.

I wish people were as adamant about defending our borders.
