SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Never before has California banned smoking on private property used exclusively by members of the owner's family — until now.
Beginning this month, motorists can be fined $100 for lighting up a cigarette in their own car, even in their driveway, if one passenger is a child.
The law marks a new frontier in more than two decades of state smoking restrictions that focused on workplaces, public buildings, restaurants, flights, tot lots and gathering spots.

Anyone ever hear a rumor? Rumors flew around that there was to be a shooting Friday at Logan. Some rumors said that the shooter was going to target Black students; others said that there would be a drive-by targeting Latino students; some said the shooter was going to come on campus to the 500's.
So, people are scared and with good reason: Threats of race-based violence and assault are horrifying. The sad part is, kids think this is a time to band together with other people of the same "race." That is one of the naive reasonings that led us to this situation.
