James Shaw (Reader Input, June 16) attacking Tom McClintock’s “Smoke Vote” is typical rhetoric of those who support the childlike angry people elected, appointed and now serving in the executive and legislative branches of our government. The “Smoke Bill” is non-productive, shifts revenue requirements and creates additional bureaucracy oversight of existing regulations that are currently ignored. Tom’s “Smoke Vote” demonstrated maturity and reasoning in voting against a bill that should have never reached the legislative floor. As to child protection: no warnings or punishments will “protect children.” Child protection begins and ends in the home where values must be taught. It is a sorry lot that looks to the government to administer a child’s decisions. James Lawrence, Auburn
