Re: courtesy and smoking

Poster: PDRUSS@aol.com

In a message dated 98-02-25 03:49:00 EST, you write:

<< This plant, by Columbus named
 tobacco, was cultivated by the Spanish in the 1530's,  was widely used all
 over Europe shortly after the middle of the century, and by 1600 was used
 pretty much over the entire known world, and was finally smoked in the
 presence of Queen Elizibeth by Sir Walter Rawley (one of many spellings he
 used). >>

So only people with personas after 1550 can smoke at events?   :)
