ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- Authorities are looking into whether a discarded cigarette from a passing vehicle on Interstate 95 sparked a fire in a trailer that killed six thoroughbred horses.
I see it all the time, people flicking their butts out the window while driving, I've even had one hit my windshield. This does nothing to dispel my general impression that smokers (in addition to be dirty, smelly idiots) are inconsiderate, littering degenerates. I've said it before, I'll say it again: your car has an ashtray -- use it. The world, believe it or not, is not your ashtray; the rest of us think you're disgusting and dislike you, intensely.

I know not all smokers do this, so if you're one of the ones who don't litter, thank you. But, your ill-mannered brethren in the Church of the Poison Lung are giving you a bad name. You should talk to them.
