Kaine to VA: No smoking.

No smoking

Originally uploaded by mag3737.

VA Gov. Tim Kaine is going to renew the push for smoking bans in bars and restaurants across the state. This is one issue where my personal preferences trump my otherwise quasi-libertarian-ness. I’m so very glad to see the governor working to take this toxin out of places we eat and hang out.

Granted, most of the places I go these days are already smoke-free (Thank you very much Murky Coffee and Boulevard Woodgrill), but it’d be nice to see this come into effect and make the bar at Four Courts a viable place to have a nice happy-hour beer instead of having to grab a table. What’s the quote from Serenity? When your quarry goes to ground, leave no ground to go to? Put out the smokes.
