Smoke 'Em If You, Well, Y'Know

They really oughta charge for tickets at City Hall this afternoon, where, from 4-6 p.m. (which seems charmingly optimistic) the City Smoking Ordinance Special Ad-Hoc Committee will discuss and likely finalize the proposed smoking ordinance. You know the one: No smoking in bars, pool halls, parks, tobacco shops and your car if there's a kid inside or on the sidewalks or restaurant patios -- pretty much everywhere, except your house.

As Sam's pointed out a few times, it's likely that some of those finer points will get kicked in the ash. Still, it'd be plenty more fun if Nick Naylor were among the scheduled speakers. Because what we need is a smoking role model, a real winner. Indiana Jones meets Jerry Maguire. On two packs a day. --Robert Wilonsky
