I'm getting so tired of hearing people bitch about Washington's attempt at banning smoking. California and New York have both successfully banned smoking in the bars, and I can surely tell you that attendance has not suffered. I'm just tired of coming home from WA bars with my clothes and hair smelling like an ash tray. I choose not to smoke--probably in big part because I've had two close relatives die from lunch cancer--And I don't enjoy that the smoke is forced upon when I go to a bar. Sure I could choose not to go to bars, but that's not really a viable option for me. I'm not the one directly throwing carcinogens into the air. I look forward to the ban. My lungs will be thankful.
