What's funny is these are probably the SAME freepers (the ones complaining about people texting) that go bonkers when the government tries to take away their right to smoke at a restaurant.
You want your sound-free environment? You dark theater? I want my smoke free environment. You can't have it both ways.
I absolutely support the restaurant owners decision if they want to allow smoking or not. If you don't want to smell smoke, go to a smoke-free restaurant. If you don't want to hear loud music, don't go where there is a live band. If you don't want to smell cooked meat, don't go to a steakhouse. I really don't understand people who think they have a right to a purified public environment.
