    I remember those days. The non-somking area was the table without an ash tray.

    Do it, Opus! Do it! (Miss Manners will forgive.)

    Oh man, at least the world sometimes does change for the better, doesn’t it? I’ve a lot fewer headaches than I did in those days.

    I guess the next time I run the gauntlet at Walmart I’ll try to remember how far we’ve come. Then again……where can I get a portable fire hose?

    Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.

    This strip now officially is history. Time marches on. No smoking sections anymore because no smoking in most public places. We now can breathe when we eat and drink.

    the sad part is all those smokers back in the 1980s who lit up at bars and restaurants, are now have serious health troubles if they are still alive.

    Me too… and I’m very, very grateful for that.

    That is good, I’ve never heard that before. That’s one of those sayings that is worth remembering. :-)

    Especially on airplanes! Thank God for the banning of smoking in public places!

    even as a smoker, I love the restaurant/bar smoking ban.

    … and THAT’s what makes (shows you to be) a good’un… doesn’t it?

    I’m all for the ban on smoking in restaurants, but banning smoking in bars is another matter


    I haven’t heard about restaurants losing money over the smoking ban, but it hit some bars pretty hard

    @Doctor Toon

    I’m on board with that — non-smoker me — too. I would just ask that the bars who want to cater to smokers post a warning sign on the door… for those of us who don’t smoke.
    .
    Fair?

    In my area we have smoking and non-smoking bars and restaurants which are well marked. Still the non-smokers go into the smoking ones and complain.
