Ruined My Life

This is an excellent article that says what I weakly attempted to say this morning.

Another invasion of privacy

So this company Weyco ( has decided that it will ban its employees from smoking. This is a complete ban, not just at work but at home as well. I saw the owner's lawyer on GMA and Today and they feel the company is well within its rights to do so.

It amazes me how business is forgetting that it does not own its employees. An employer can't just decide that while at home, its employees must or must not engage in a perfectly legal activity. What next? No fatty foods? No drinking? No voting for a candidate the company disagrees with? Everyone should go to now and join. They're the last organization in this country standing up for the rights of the individual.

Not much to say today. I've got a big trip coming up for work that will send me to Nashville, TN and Irvine, CA. One on one interviews. At least this time I don't have to conduct 45 of them. It will be good, I need a trip out of town for work. There's something about travel that gets me feeling good and connected with the world again. When I'm home, I don't seem to venture out much. I stay glued to the TV or read and have a quiet life. It's not that I'm a different person when I'm out, but it's good for my brain. I people watch, I think. It's liberating for my brain.
