Al's Restaurant should join American Cancer Society Boycott

I heard on KMOX that Al's Restaurant is honoring the memory of family and friends lost to cancer by donating a portion of all sales today and tomorrow to the American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society is the last political organization to which a St. Louis restaurant should donate! Al's currently allows smoking in their bar. It also allows smoking in its dining area if no one present objects. The American Cancer Society will use the money Al's gives them to spread false claims about the dangers Al's smoking policy presents to public health and organize a group, Smoke-Free St. Louis City, to take away Al's freedom and property rights. Al's should join the nationwide boycott of the American Cancer Society and donate instead to a real charity that will help find a cure for cancer and help pay for the treatment of those suffering from the dread disease.
