GA - Smokin': Sonny Perdue's internal debate over where your nose ends, and the other fellow's schnoz begins | ajc.com
Smokin': Sonny Perdue's internal debate over where your nose ends, and the other fellow's schnoz begins | ajc.com: "The governor served notice that he was contemplating a rare veto — a deep-sixing of the bill to ban smoking in most public buildings, including restaurants, in Georgia.

'I am very concerned with government being the end-all and be-all nanny for all people,' Perdue said. 'But I have huge respect for the passion for the health-care argument.'

The irony of the situation is palpable. In 2003, this same governor argued for an increase in the tobacco tax because smoking was a vile habit that didn't need to be passed on to our children."
