The Ultimate in Hypocricy

I couldn't believe what I was reading. I had to look at it over and over and over again to make sure I had it right.

"The Weekender" had a short blurb about an upcoming event in downtown Wilkes-Barre. It's set for December 13th, and it's called the "Running of the Santas Pub Crawl." Money raised goes to the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.

So far, so good.

No problem.

One of the downtown Wilkes-Barre bars involved is the "Hardware Bar." This is the same place that recently held a "smokers' rights night" and gave out free cigarettes!

The victim's age doesn't matter. The type is irrelevant.

Cancer is cancer.

Fighting cancer is great. Encouraging it is something else.

Shame on you.
