No they didn't

I recently got an e-mail from a friend about how they banned smoking 24/7 in Athens, Georgia. I didn't get the whole article b/c I was to lazy to register for the Athens Herald Banner on-line. Anyway he does an excellent job with details and outrage...

Just reading in the Athens paper about the new 24-7 smoking ban that just went into effect in the Classic City and includes bars. What a joke. Here's a quote from the story explaining why: "People should not have to deal with secondhand smoke to enjoy a night out on the town," said Derrick Gable, tobacco use prevention program coordinator for the Northeast Health District. I'm sorry, but at what point did a bar become a health club? Here's a newsflash: People who sit at a bar slugging whiskey and Cokes are not concerned about their health. Hypocrisy at it's finest. While you're at a bar wrecking your liver, please take care of your lungs. Besides, anyone who says they won't go into a bar because it's smokey needs to be kicked in the nuts and sent home. Fucking pussy. It's a bar. A BAR!

If this happened in Athens, expect it to effect your corner of the woods soon, it it hasn't already.
