I will watch it, I've seen the ads. My sister is an ER nurse in NY. She had an 800 lb man come in the other day. He died. The family wanted to know why!! Hello, hearts were not made to pump blood to that much body mass. He was only 30, very sad.Originally posted by pupsgalore:

Again, no logic here. I think you need to RE-read that quote from the Leader article you just posted. It's not about everyone, it's not even about health, it's about what I've been saying it's about this whole time. It's about MONEY. The restaurants within a "banned area" are upset because the restaurants outside of the "banned areas" are making more MONEY because they ALLOW smokers. So they are out to make sure that NOONE can allow smokers. It has nothing to do with your health or mine or anyone else's. It's about wallets.Originally posted by logic1:
Support smoking ban
The Wisconsin Restaurant Association board of directors has voted 36-1 to support a statewide workplace smoking ban that does not exempt bars or bar areas in restaurants. The association has always defended a business owner's right to make his/her own decisions, it was noted. However, the current patchwork of local smoking bans puts hundreds of restaurants at an unfair disadvantage where they may lose customers to restaurants just outside the smoking ban area or to taverns that may be exempt. "Given the proliferation of local ordinances in the state of Wisconsin, WRA's board of directors has voted to support a workplace smoking ban," notes Ed Lump, president and CEO. "We feel that this is the only way to create a fair competitive environment for all eating and drinking establishments in Wisconsin. The problem with exempting bars from a smoking ban is that this puts restaurants at a distinct disadvantage compared to bars that may serve a lot of food and can still allow smoking, WRA noted.
