Hi Anne,

You're right. I should not have said "irrelevant". In fact, I myself
shouldn't be exposed to second-hand smoke because I have heart disease.
(And I live with three smokers.) The real point that I was trying so poorly

affected and involved, not by other individuals, including governments.
