Yikes! Tulsa is No. 1—in Smoking (Cough, Cough)

That's right, Sooner fans, T-town in No. 1 in smoking. Whoo-hoo!

The AT gang doesn't smoke, but lots of our Tulsa neighbors do, apparently. This is unfortunate, since smoking is—how should be put it?—deadly. And we suspect that this isn't the kind of publicity the Greater Tulsa Chamber of Commerce wants for Tulsa.

Maybe it's all the gamblers around here, since the local casinos seem filled with smokers. (Or so we're told. We of pure hearts and minds wouldn't know.)

In short, we can't explain the attractions of cigarettes, but if seems to be a public health issue that ought to raise some alarms.

The Daily Beast story here: 30 Cities With Smoking Problems.

By the way, Oklahoma City ranked No. 7 on the list, so at least we beat them at something. Oh wait, this means they are healthier than we are.
