Couldn't agree with you more...now if only they would rescind the purchase of the council's fluffy new iPads and dedicate that money to a more responsible use.
I'm just curious - since research proves that the number of smokers is decreasing everyday, why pin another tax on tobacco? Especially since the taxes on alcohol haven't been increased since the 1970s...seems like that would provide a much more stable revenue and since AB in St. Louis is now a european firm, its not like it would hurt the "hometown" business.
