Kiss my ash

A McAllen politician wants to ban smoking in the city's restaurants. City Commissioner Marcus Barrera wants an ordinance similar to Harlingen's no-smoking rule. He once said:
"I’d rather eat tainted food — food not kept at the right temperature," he said. "Because, what’s worse? Eating food that’s contaminated or sitting next to someone who is breathing smoke in your face?"
OK, commissioner: You fix yourself a salmonella sandwich with a side of E. coli, and I'll eat a burger while sitting next to a dude smoking Marlborough Reds. Let's see who gets sick first.

I guess since all of McAllen's other problems have been solved, like traffic congestion, for example, Barrera can stick his nose into other people's businesses.
