And James Nash of the Columbus Dispatch said there were 600 some odd investigations. Seems to me, with 2,959 complaints, something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Are they only investigating "good", "safe" neighborhoods? Inquiring minds demand to know why the discrepancy?

Thank you for a very impressive job of spamming Topix. Well done!

By the way, for most of the bar owners that I know, Friday is a pretty busy night.

Guess you've got time on your hands?

Actually its right on subject, private business owners and the damage smoking bans do to them, not jdh and his aliases tall "i;m better than you are" or your we are smarte, more educated, and richer than you are.

JDh got his ass kicked by his own challange just as you will by your "the bar I go to" which is not the only private business in Ohio.

I guess smoking ban can cause "more time on the owners hands", ya think!!That is what forced evil smoking bans do to private business owners, more time on hands and less money leading to no business, lay offs and closing.

No its not spam

First of all, I don't live at my bar. I have employees.
Second, the weather was nasty last night. Smokers don't go out when it's nasty because they don't want to leave their drink and their friends to stand in blowing snow. Or haven't you been keeping up?

JDH thinks Columbus/Franklin County is abiding by the smoking ban. He asked for proof that it wasn't.

I like flying too, but we always have to buy four airfares, so it just doesn't make sense. Where did you go on the Cape? I was in a graduate program through Northeastern University that was held in Martha's Vineyard. I did that for two summers, so I have some really strong feelings for that place. Did you go up to Provincetown? It's one of my favorites. My husband and I took a long driving trip years ago, starting with MV, then up the Cape, over to Nova Scotia, then to Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and back home. That was a magnificent and very long trip, but it was before the kids were born. They wouldn't have liked it so much...too much driving.
Stayed in Plymouth on Great Herring Pond...and I am with you on P-town...what a blast!
We stopped in Niagara Falls on the way back then 2 months later went back to NF for a week. Niagara on the Lake was really awesome too, the winery's there were pretty cool!

From the ridiculous spam posts I just scrolled through...it sure looked to me as a handful of names were simply duplicated over and over.

Hardly an impressive list!

Reminds me of the effect they used in the movie the birds...3 real birds and a lot of duplication!

I guess thats what ya have to do if your in a losing fight on the dismal end of the battle!

antis only continue to go where they always went which was already smokefree by the owners choice, there goes the level playing field joke down the drain. They must be afraid that somewhere else someone will smoke. The smoking ban is a sick joke by sick people
