Don't Light Up In Times Square

We all know New York is the city that never sleeps. Well now, it could be the city that never smokes. New York City Council has voted to ban smoking in public parks, beaches and Time Square.

Smokers are running out of places to get their fix. Soon, you'll only be allowed to light up in your closet, in the dark. By the way, the largest tobacco company in the U.S. made nearly a billion dollars last quarter even though cigarette sales were down.

So, don't worry about the cigarette companies like you always do.
