I can agree with that. I don't understand the anger, either. Apparently
to some any perceived attack upon their freedom to smoke anywhere is a
prelude to banning smoking completely. Or, perhaps some mistakenly believe
that they *should* be able to smoke anywhere/anytime.

alcohol as alcoholics, but the analogy is appropriate. I do wonder what
would happen if there were an event held at a site that was smoke-free...
