And Again, The Air Gets Just A Little Cleaner

Add another state to the list of places I'm now somewhat more likely to visit and spend money in. According to the News Journal, the Governor of New Jersey has signed into law an indoor smoking ban.

The indoor smoking prohibition has worked well for Delaware. I'm glad to see it spreading out; New Jersey is the eleventh state now.

The New Jersey law exempts Casinos. I'm sorry for the Casino workers who will still have to breathe-in that smoke, but looking at it selfishly, I don't really mind something that will make it even less likely for me to go into a casino.

I was amused to see news coverage of protests against the law before it was enacted by "exotic Dancers." They felt it might threaten their customer base. I don't think it will.

I suppose they felt an instinctual threat from any law targeting one of the vices.
