Smoke 'em If You Got 'em... so says Champaign!

So all that hub-bub from the CU Smoke-Free Alliance was for naught. Defeated 5 to 4 by the Champaign City Council, the smoking ban for the city was denied. On the table was a comprehensive ban for all public places, and it just couldn't gain enough support.

I, for one, think that smoking should be banned in restaurants, but ok for bars. Basically, if you have to be "of age" to enter the place, and they sell smokes there, you should be able to light up.

At any rate, you can read the full account of the News-Gazette article here.

I agree with no smoking in restaurants but smoking in bars. But it's just a matter of time before you can't get food at bars or alcohol at restaurants or some other weird convolution. What should be done is allow the owner of the establishment to decide whether smoking's allowed just like some places don't allow alcohol. Is this wrong?

It's not wrong at all. That's actually the way it is now, anyways. Ned Kelly's is the CU-SFA's favorite gathering spot because of it.
