All the World's a Stage (for Smoking)

I don't smoke, and I don't actually like to be in smoky places. But the idea that a government can ban smoking in public places bothers me.

This happened in Minnesota. All bars are now smoke free, with one loophole. If you're in a play, you can smoke indoors. So, now bars in Minnesota are having "theater nights." And, all customers are designated as "improv actors."

I think that's just awesome. Will the government crack down on this? Sure. Heaven forbid they spend time on something more important, like making sure major bridges don't collapse...

(Yes, I know cancer sucks, and workers should be protected from second-hand smoke... but I still tend to side with smoker's rights. As long as cigs are legal, you should be able to smoke them in bars. Period.)
