An article in yesterday's Misc is stirring up a bit of controversy, in which Michael Mestitz '12 wrote about the environmental and health impacts of smoking cigarettes.
"I honestly thought that [smoking] was a habit more or less confined to people our parents’ and grandparents’ generation," Mestitz writes.
The article has already gotten 23 comments on the Misc's website, which is the most comments we've ever seen on their site. The site also has a new poll on whether Vassar should ban smoking. 42% of voters say yes.
"This issue is going to blow up to KillerCoke proportions if we don't watch what we say," one commenter writes.
