more of that weird New England Puritanism, no smoking signs posted at the homosexual marriage reception and the abortion clinic.
Weird is right; so is hypocritical.
Although I was already aware of it with regard to abolition, not until my late 30's did I begin to pay real attention to the elitist New England penchant for "reform" that has affected this country since the beginning. The road to hell has indeed been paved with their "good" intentions.
Having said that, a smoking nazi is a smoking nazi, be it in Boston, Birmingham or Berlin...
