To the editor:

Robert J. (Chris) Dettman was really off the mark in his comments about Hardee's (Forum, Jan. 19) when he said they are imposing their moral judgment on him and other smokers.They are not imposing any "moral judgment" on anyone but are following common sense and good business judgment. I have not been a Hardee's customer, but you can bet I will be now. If Mr. Dettman wants to take his business somewhere else, that's great. I hope he will let us all know where he is welcome, so my wife and I (and all the other non-smokers) can avoid those places.
