Put That Thing Out!

A "smoking ban" (actually a restriction) has been proposed at both the county and state levels, and a poll shows that a majority of Pennsylvanians supports the statewide proposal.

I'm on the fence about this one. A ban on smoking on private property offends my inner libertarian. The very act of smoking, on the other hand, offends me as a human being. I have lost close relatives to smoking related illnesses, and smokers are generally just unpleasant to be around.

So I can't actively support or oppose such a ban, but if it does happen, I won't complain.
