Agreed...
The whole smoking ban thing really gets me.
I don't smoke anymore, but If I recall correctly, we smoked in bars. We drank too. So, If I were against drinking and somking and folks who drink and smoke....I'd avoid bars.
But I am a simple man.

Also, when government types start worrying about somking in bars, I can rest easy, because surely they have solved every other problem that faces my community, and are now mopping up nusciances. Because they surely wouldn't be wasting time on this when other, more serious issues are troubling the citizenry.

As a final aside, have you ever noticed how the most do-good touchy feely towns/areas have the worst infrastructure for normal people?
Check any trendy town, college district, or alternative burg. They have co-op groceries, Body piercing studios, Homeless hang outs, vegan restaurants, hate free zones......and I'll be danged if I can find a decent steak or beer in the whole place.....

I'd much rather have free enterprise.
