People will stop eating out if they can't smoke at the table? Seems unlikely.

Well, that's not quite what I said. However, I could see how you could misconstrue my statement.

Well it didn't stop them from eating in Jefferson Co. lined out the door at all the good places in the evening, 20 min. to 1.5 hours wait, most don't have smpking in them round here anyway, except for Tumbleweed in Brooks, thats why I don't go there.

As a non-smoker, I grew up with my parents smoking around me... I hated it. I knew that I never wanted to smoke.

My stance on smoking indoors comes down to square footage and density of smokers in that area.

For example, the 10 people smoking at the bar at El Nopal in Shepherdsville doesn't bother me. Huge place, low density.

On the other hand, I won't even go into the Tumbleweed at Brooks. The place has more smog than a bad morning in LA.

Also, the biggest problems with separate sections is that they typically share a ventilation system. Meaning the smoke is just being pushed all over the building anyway.

Because smoking is bad? Please. As a smoker you've had plenty of time to read the little warnings on the side of the box. Unless, of course, you've already had kids with birth defects and that's why you're so sensitive. It's obvious you don't care enough about yourself to quit smoking (hi cancer!).

Putting a smoking section in a restaurant is like putting a peeing section in a pool!

Spoken like a true addict! Hey, you do know that freedom doesn't mean it gives you the 'right' to do whatever you want! Right? I mean, I own a gun...does that give me the 'right' to go and shoot anyone I don't like??! No. It kind of is against the law to do that.

Same with here in Ohio- it's against the law to smoke around the public. AMERICAN'S VOTED ON IT AND PASSED IT 4 YEARS AGO. Oh, and the only businesses that went out were the few rat holes that tried to disobey the law and got fined to the point they went down in flames. Nobody cared, people were happy and the majority of businesses in Ohio have thrived for years now. Talk about communist...seems like you're the one who's Anti-America.:) Have a nice day! ;)
