Non-smokers have rights, too

Smokers have had the run of things for too long, without care for others

Re: Tougher smoking restrictions months away (News, Oct. 16)

Smokers have had their own way for more than 200 years. There was never any concern about anyone’s health; smokers just lit up wherever they wished, and still do.

It’s about time they were concerned about other people’s personal freedom and public health concerns besides their own. I am a non-smoker, and guess what? I am supposed to have rights too!
