Are we becoming a nation of whinny little rats and tattle-tales?
"The Cincinnati Health Department will investigate the Cincinnati Reds for violations of the state smoking ban after people complained players smoked cigars indoors while celebrating their National League Central Division title Tuesday night.
A lot of players could be seen on TV smoking the cigars, and Reds owner Bob Castellini was passing them out. But video doesn't affect the investigation - the health inspector has to actually see someone smoking, said Rocky Merz, health department spokesman.
Five people called a statewide smoking ban complaint hotline, Merz said. Those complaints were sent to the city health department today for investigation. Castellini will get letter soon notifying him of the alleged violation."
So the Reds end a 15 year post-season drought and the owner breaks out cigars......IN THEIR OWN CLUBHOUSE, and FIVE little Gestapo rats call the Smoking Ban Complaint Hotline.
First off, what the f*ck is a smoking complaint hotline?? A government run Gestapo apparatus to monitor smoking? What in the hell are we becoming?!!!
