A smoking ban went into effect this past Sunday for public facilities in Springfield. A lot of people are up in arms about not being able to exercise their freedom and fill the air with toxic chemicals that harm people, but a lot more are happy that they can go to a restaurant without having to breathe toxic chemicals that harm people 🙂
A co-worker (and friend… I guesss) of mine, Justin Long, said that his home away from home, Spammy’s Tavern is having a rough go of it without all of the smoke. So rough, in fact, that they just purchased a large flat panel television to show how much money they’ll be losing because of the ban. What a shame. I feel for them. Really, I do.
