1st day of school!

Today was the first day of my second year at Western Oregon University. I am glad to be back, last year was a good and interesting one. I was in the Model United Nations club and really enjoyed it. I am involved again this year and was elected president of the club. I really like the process of diplomacy and working within the context of a rules system to achieve goals. While it is true that there are some flaws within the United Nations and some people are using the system to help themselves. The intentions of the UN are both honorable and just and if followed will only help the world to be a better place. I urge people to look into it.

The High Cost of Smoking

The above link will take you to a blog that has an anti measure 50 commercial on it. The ad wants us to vote no on 50 because it changes our state constitution. I myself could care less if it affects our state constitution. The reality is that smoking is a horrible habit and one that leads to the smokers death and often the death of those around the smoker whether or not they smoke. Anything that is that destructive should be done away with. But what about free will then. Fine don't outlaw just put the smokers on smoker reservation. Then the non-smoker will not be forced to smell and breath the foul stink of the burning carcinogenic agent.
