More of This Is Good!

In West Virginia, men still have testosterone.

Nobody's going to tell Kerry "Paco" Ellison's customers they can't smoke at his bar.

The Black Hawk Saloon is Ellison's bar, and he'll run it as he sees fit.

"If I don't want to pray, I don't go to church," Ellison said. "If you don't want to smoke, don't come in here."

Today, Ellison and at least a dozen other bar owners across the county defiantly encouraged their patrons to smoke in violation of the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department's six-week-old smoking ban.

The Mommy-May-I department's response?

Health board President Brenda Isaac called the bar owners a "rebel group."

"This is a very small percentage of bars in the county," Isaac said. "It's too bad they're getting all this publicity. Most of the bar owners are very law-abiding."

T Jeff said it best: "A little rebellion now and then is a good thing."
