Where There's Fire, There's Yet More Talk About Not Smoking in Dallas

Courtney's headed back to City Hall at 11:30 this morning, where, yet again, the City Smoking Ordinance Special Ad-Hoc Committee will spark up the debate over where you can't and can't light up in this town. For a sneak peek of where this discussion's headed today, the council has posted to the city's Web site a look at how other cities around the country handle their particular smoking bans (including in theatrical productions ... and is that even part of Dallas's proposed ban?). Perhaps we'd be wise to follow Boston's sidewalk restrictions as well: "Not allowed [on] wharfs, waterfronts, docks." Courtney will update from Marilla accordingly. --Robert Wilonsky
