As one of their own Councilmen points out – "You might as well hammer a big yellow S on their front doors." Indeed it does evoke images of Nazi Germany persecution of Jews.
So I would ask a few questions.
What is the point in handing out maps to tenants showing which apartments are occupied by smokers? I can see only one reason for this and that is to promote victimisation and harassment.
Will someone please tell me what this has to do with health?
And what is next?
All smokers to wear a large S [or a Star of David] on their coats?
All smokers moved into designated areas?
Cattle trains in the dead of night?
And before you accuse me of exaggeration, how would you have reacted ten years ago if I had predicted that smokers would one day have to register before they could get a specially designated apartment?
You would have accused me of exaggeration then.
