I think there should be no smoking in public places. There shouldn’t be smoking in public places because for the people who don’t smoke can get second hand smoke from them. I think they have a right to not have to go to certain places and to just find no smoking. When places have sections of smoking and non smoking you can still get sick because it will go all over the place not just in the little section. When people have little babies they need a place without smoking because the baby or child could get bronchitis or pneumonia. If a child has asthma it can make it way worse and its not fair they don’t get to go to public places if their is smoking. People could not smoke inside the building and not outside either so it don’t go inside. They could smoke in the parking lot or in their cars. There shouldn’t be smoking at public places because the people that want to stay smoke free don’t get sick from the second hand spoke.

I was interesting he came up with a social network when he doesn’t like to socialize alot and he said he didn’t want to see the social network.

The blogs are kinda creeping because you look at what other people are saying and it kinda feels like your stalking them. But thats why people blog so other people can comment on them.
