It's really hard to believe that this is happening in America:
Andy Nowicki has been smoking for 70 years. Now that life-long habit for the World War II veteran might land him on the outside looking in, as the Newington
Housing Authorityis suing to evict the soon-to-be 90-year-old and his 90-year-old wife from their senior housingapartment in Cedar Village.
That's right, what a great idea: Let's evict a 90year old World War II veteran and his wife for smoking (still legal and heavily taxed) in their home! Oh, that's right, it's not "really" their home because the government owns it. We truly do live in scary times. I'd rather live in a trailer any day than in a government run prison complex posing as housing for the poor.
Shame on anyone who condones this type of discrimination and outright cruelty. There is nothing American about evicting an elderly couple from their home. What a bigoted and un-American policy.
