SMOKING BANS....Charles Kuffner reports today that corporations are increasingly refusing to hire smokers. That is, they don't just ban smoking in their buildings, or while on the job, but flat out refuse to hire anyone who smokes. Details are here.

Is this a slippery slope toward a corporate state in which our employers control everything we do? Or a reasonable response to increased healthcare costs and potential bad PR from hiring smokers? Discuss.
