I don't smoke. I oppose the smoking ban as it would apply to bars. I can understand it in offices and to a limited degree in resturants because smoke affects the taste of food.

I agree with much of what you've written about the anti-smoking movement in general and in Pa in particular.

Last, the questions you've raised about Godshall's involvement in editorial writing deserves clear answers from the PG and the Erie Times-News. Emphasis on the "clear".

If there is any basis for a smoking ban, it would be to protect the health of workers--which isn't to say that I necessarily favor a ban. But I certainly don't believe that how smoke affects the taste of food is any basis for banning smoking from restaurants. No one has the right to a good-tasting meal.
