Two Years

The second anniversary of Pennsylvania's ban on smoking in most indoor public places passed over the weekend.

The Harrisburg Patriot did a story last week, showing how the ban has NOT adversely affected business at bars and restaurants.  Get that one?  People are actually going out a little more because they're not subjected to second hand smoke.

So, it's time to take the next logical step.  Eliminate the exemptions the cowardly legislature included when the bill first passed.  Level the playing field.  Other states have done the same thing.  I checked the papers this morning.  There was no entertainment industry collapse in New York state, a place that banned public smoking long, long ago.
