Screw clean air

I heard a news feature this morning by KUAR's Ron Breeding about compliance with the law prohibiting smoking in most public places. My attention was caught by his reference to a Little Rock tavern that is flouting the law. It has a warning sign that those under 21 enter at their own risk. (The law, regrettably, still allows smoking in places where no one under 21 is admitted.) Breeding, for some reason, chose not to identify the business, but quoted the owner as saying he doesn't like the government telling him what to do. Laws? He don't need no stinkin' laws.

Any of our far-flung readers have an idea who this scofflaw might be? If for no other reason than to provide a public service to those hoping to avoid his stinkin' air.

And would it be too much to ask the state to go enforce the law on this joker?
