71. Sorry
I have a child who is very well taken care of. I also do not smoke in the house, or the car, and I ask my mom to smoke outside, when we come to visit. That said, I will take my son to outdoor festivals, where people smoke, to a gathering, now and then, where people may be smoking inside, and I take him, maybe once a month, to the local bar, for lunch, where people are smoking. I make these decisions, because I am intelligent enough to understand what kind of exposure to smoke is going to hurt him. I'm neither paranoid, stuffed full of bad medical advice, or a hypochondriac.

In the ad you put up, the woman said "the air was blue," where she worked, with smoke. That is not comparable to me smoking a cigarette on a park bench, more than 10 feet away from a ninny-nanny two shoes. To try to make that comparable is nuts.
