I need to say one thing here.  My lady does not subscribe to this list, 
but I feel the need to speak for her because she is one of the people to 
whom second hand smoke is an actual health hazard rather than an 
annoyance.  Most of the time people are considerate of others with their 
smaoke.  This is not always the case, though.  Usually she is too shy to 
say anything and just moves somewhere else where the breathing is 
easier.  Sometimes she asks me to mention something to the smoker on her 
behalf.  I have never had a rude response from a smoker.  My point here 
was just to reiterate Philips message about second hand smoke being a 
health threat to some.  Case in point, my lady.  Anyone else out there 
with a similar problem?  If Philip is considering bringing this law to 
HRM for removal, we should let him know our opinions of it now.
