Kansas City Politics is really out of focus

In the news, Kansas City, Missouri, is one of the most dangerous places to live in the country. There are gang wars going on, but the city doesn't worry about that - they worry about forcing all bars and restaurants to be completely non-smoking.

The City Health Department wants to force all restaurants and bars to be smoke free, and while doing so, force all restaurants in the entire metropolitan area to be smoke free.

I don't smoke, but this should be a decision that a business owner makes.
I would be much more impressed if the City Council would do something about the violent crime rate in Kansas City.

My son, who lives there, tells me that Kansas City is a major transshipment point for cheap marijuana from Mexico. The profit margins which illegality gives this product make fighting over control of the business attractive to the criminally inclined.
