Air pollution from second-hand smoke dropped by 99 percent in a sampling of bars and restaurants in Hennepin County within three months of launching its smoking ban March 31, according to a study commissioned by the Minnesota Partnership for Action Against Tobacco.
- Why only 99%? If smoking is banned, why did they find anything at all? Perhaps they are building a case for their next move; Banning Smokers from bars and restaurants.
- If I owned one of the bars these yahoos tested, I would have tossed them out on their collective asses.
- They neglected to report that, during the same period, revenues and profits at the bars and restaurants surveyed dropped almost as much as the second hand smoke.
- Anti-smoking zealots who now go to the bars and restaurants eat salads, drink water and leave tips averaging 3% of the bill.
