I remember about 5 - 10 years ago when Florida passed the clean air law and banned smoking in public places. I was happy, but didn't realize how great it was until this last week on my road trip.
I came across many states (and restaurants) which still allow smoking inside and have "smoking" and "non-smoking" sections. Ugh! It was horrible. I walk in and immediately my eyes begin to water. One restaurant had 3 (yes, only 3) booths in the corner for non-smoking. Those 3 booths were the entire "non-smoking" section.
Ugh! Ackh! Snort!!
Anybody still live in a state where public smoking is still allowed indoors? I'm glad Washington and Florida both passed those clean-air laws. It's horrid, absolutely horrid I tell you. It's not like you can just not get the smoke affect by moving to a corner. It permeates every nook and cranny of a restaurant. The smell, the watering of eyes, the kicking up of allergies.
Ok...I needed to rant that out. Thanks for listening.
