The recent article about smoking is no different that 1,000 other articles written about the dangers of smoking ("Up in smoke," Jan. 19). It amazes me that this product is still legal. If anything in this world is certain, the suffering smoking is causing is preventable. Smoking should be outlawed. Usually smokers rationalize, saying it is their life and they will smoke, so the warning on cigarette packs are useless. The reason I quit was evidence that my smoking was harming others.

Military wife, Marine mom and cookbook author Susan Slack offers these suggestions for preparing and sending foods packages to soldiers overseas:Unbleached, all-purpose flour produces sturdy cookies for shipping; bread flour produces crisper cookies. Cookies made with vegetable oil do not spoil as quickly as those made with butter. Cookies with little moisture work best. Avoid icing cookies; avoid using syrups and brown sugars. Use recipes with longer cooking times to create drier, sturdier treats.

As this year's General Assembly session illustrates, these tax hikes did not fix the state's spending problems. Instead, they created problems for many Marylanders. For instance, the cigarette tax is driving smokers to purchase their cigarettes in other states, hurting local businesses and depriving the state of tax revenue.
