This place is smokin'

But not anymore: Smoking ban in effect in Boston. The Board of Heath has banned smoking in the workplace -- sounds like a good idea, right? Well, let's not forget that thousands of bartenders, waitresses, hostesses, etc., are working too, which means no more smoking in bars, clubs, and restaurants.

I'm torn. I don't smoke; I hate the smell of smoke in my clothes and hair after a night on the town; I can't wait to go to a club or bar and have a drink and not come home with a vicious headache from the smoke. But are we going too far? At what point do we have to say the government should stop interfering in the minute-by-minute of our lives?
