Smokers as Ancients

I have always loved Peggy Noonan. She is a fine writer and was a great speech writer for President Reagan. For many years I used her first book, What I Saw at the Revolution in classes to introduce students to the high-mindedness of politics. Thank God she has continued to write. And now she has this great piece on smokers and how they are being treated. It is especially good on the politically correct/puritanical tendencies of liberals. But it is also good on describing a smoker’s reasonable attitude toward life, explaining why smokers are essentially conservative, why they aren’t moderns. You should read this, even if you don’t smoke. It is a classic.
