Thank You For Smoking

Mark Steyn notes an appalling development in politically-correct Vancouver:

Okay, Muslim foot-baths in Kansas City airport, gender-segregated swimming sessions at French municipal pools, banning pork from Aussie hospital menus, no eating donuts for Belgian cops during Ramadan, no seeing-eye dogs or alcohol in Minneapolis taxi cabs, fine, fine, fine. Must be sensitive and all that.
But this is an amazing victory. In Vancouver, infidels can’t smoke but Muslims can.

It’s true; Muslim hookah-smokers have been exempted from a new anti-smoking ordinance in Vancouver. It seems that Muslims really, really need to smoke. A new motto for the Vancouver city council: Not just mad; stark, raving mad!
