One for the smoking nazis...

Michigan company fires 4 employees for refusing smoking test

I'm not here to defend smoking. Yes, it can be an obnoxious habit, and as a habit (if it's not simply something one does in moderation, perhaps socially like with a tumbler of whiskey) it's not good for you.

However, how far is this really going to go? Couldn't the same logic applied to over-zealous anti-smoking activism be applied to any number of things most of us commonly indulge in? Things like red meat, too much sugar, too many trans fats, too much processed food, etc. etc.?

I'm just waiting for a generation of fat bastards to start suing McDonalds for their clogged arteries ("they hooked me as a child with their psychologically manipulative advertising").
