Editorial: Smoking bans

from the author "The reason why I started this petition is that I was downtown in the evening with my wife and newborn and we wanted to walk around and have a coffee. There was so much smoke around and we had to doge though large groups of smokers. Then when I came home I had this cigarette smell that I could not get rid of, finally figured out my head was covered in some tar goop that stunk like an ashtray. It was so disgusting that I sat down and wrote this petition. If that did not happen I don't think I would have done it."

enforce it, then. maybe you could become a junior deputy and hand out infractions like a hall monitor. in fact, you could do that on 4th of July, too. you'll be the most popular kid at school, I'm sure of it.
Dude, just chill. leave it. instead of stirring things up just relax and enjoy yourself. Maybe take a little time to learn a little about the local traditions, enjoy the local fare. watch out for the Jayhawk poop though, especially when downtown is celebrating the final four championship.

but the law doesn't need repealed. it's fine the way it is. no change is necessary. I guess more repetition is necessary for you to understand that no one has even mentioned a desire to repeal.

thank you Ariana, but not one person is calling for a repeal of the law. I just desire that it be left the way it is. I want no change, so why would I start a petition to repeal a law that doesn't need changed. I guess my repetition is necessary as you and your husband do not seem to understand that Downtown is fine the way it is, no new laws are needed, no laws need repealed.
Just relax, sit back and enjoy yourself in your new home. Chill out. The flying tar ball was probably just Jayhawk poop.

it's quite rare that someone attacks the entire state and insults them when filing a petition in said state.

that is a pity.

You have insulted the entire state of Kansas on Facebook, yet expect us to roll out the red carpet?
and the authors lovely wife is quoted as insulting Kansans on facebook;

Ariana Krasniqi based on the comments and people reactions on this petition, i am slowly thinking that this is more about the " foreigner trying to change YOUR city" than about the subject itself... it makes me think, that the citizens are barely politically active here... and probable NEVER heard or took part in a petition before, could it be? Does anybody know about earlier petition history in this town that actually finances itself by foreigners
