Banging on about the Smoking Ban

I'm definitely moving from Livejournal to Wordpress. New address is:

I haven't actually written much at the new Wordpress site. It may take a few days before I get into writing stuff. For now I've just been trying out different templates, and the text editor it's got. So the look of it will change around a bit. I'll probably keep it a bit like the Livejournal page (whose text font and size I've grown accustomed to). i.e. simple.

Wordpress all seems to be much more slicker than Livejournal. And it seems there are more features available.

Commenting should be easier. No captchas (that I've seen yet anyway). At the moment it's set for people to put name and email address (just like WUWT). If people want to comment anonymously they can just put "anonymous" and a silly, made-up email address like "". It doesn't seem to check email addresses. Comments have the usual HTML italic, bold, and stuff.

There's an option to import from Livejournal to Wordpress, but it might take a long time, given some 500 Livejournal posts and quite a few images. Whichever way, I'll leave the Livejournal stuff as it is. Except maybe switch off comments after a while (not yet anyway).

I probably won't post here any more.

So long Livejournal.

Re: Sentimental Journey

Although I haven't entirely lost interest in American politics, I find your politics fascinating, often more so than ours. All the intrigue and machination and bluntly honest debate is thought-provoking.

Our pro-smoking blogs (the few that exist) seem tepid in comparison. Dime-a-dozen arguments and insults consisting of the same 50 or so words are constantly hurled and recycled. There's one thing for certain, you guys write circles around us.

Are there any good USA smoking blogs you do read? I know of only a handful of them.
