Letter to the editor

Anti-smoking column appreciated

April 17, 2009

I just want to thank and praise, yes praise, Brad Brookins for his article on smokers. I could hardly get through without tearing up with laughter; it was almost as if someone took all of my thoughts and attitudes toward smokers and wrote it down.

I am about as anti-smoke as one might become but Brad might have me beat, and this I am thankful for. I have lost more than a few very close relatives due to smoking, not to mention the common annoyances that were clearly expressed in the article.

Brad, your article will be hanging on my bedroom wall as long as I live there so that as many people as possible can read it, and love it as much as I did. I’m excited for next week’s column where it continues, the madness continues! Thank you again for such a “moving” column on those damn smokers! I swear I’m not crazy, just passionate about the things I care about. Go Twins!
