Re: “Broadening the smoking ban

Wow, all very well thought out arguments and mostly articulated well too although some were much more funny than others. I have to say as a restauranteur in this state that has both a smoking and a non smoking venu that I still believe that it ought to be up to the individual business owner as to what crowd they care to cater to. With the decline in the number of smokers, I knew we were catering to a very deminishing clientelle. IT WAS A CHOICE THAT WE MADE AS A BUSINESS. If I am not smart enough to keep up with business trends and can't see sales increase or decline in my business from CHOICES I MAKE, maybe I shouldn't be in business.

As far as employees go, last I checked it is a WORK AT WILL STATE! I have smokers that work at the non smoking place and and non smokers working at the smoking place. They DID have a choice as to whether THEY APPLIED with me or applied at a non smoking establishment. I think it is unfortunate that all the viament non smokers feel it is their duty to dictate to me how to run MY business. If you don't like what happens here, vote with your feet and your wallet. Smokers are the last group in America that you can legally discriminate against and it has gotten a little silly.
