All Over But The Shouting

Well, it’s official, by a vote of 12 to 1, the DC Council voted to ban smoking in bars in restaurants effective on 1 January 2007. Now what’s left is the endless lawsuits, the building of the economic hardship guidelines and a whole sackload of congressional oversight. So, while we’re just 361 days from a fully smokei-free DC, it’s not going to be an easy task.

Councilwoman Carol Schwartz was the lone opposing vote, citing personal freedom and the acts of consenting adults.

It’s just a shame that I never consented to let others stink up the room.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
