Philly goes smokefree

Finally, after years of fighting in City Hall, Philadelphia's restaurants and most bars went smokefree effective at midnight. [Read story.]

Many smokers are grumbing about how it interferes with their "right" to smoke. But, as I always point out, one person's rights end where the next person's rights begin. They do NOT have the "right" to force me to inhale their toxic, smelly smoke.

It's so good to know that I can now relax in Philly's restaurants and bars without the itchy eyes and scratchy throat, and without leaving there smelling like an ashtray.
