10. Thought-provoking question of the week: The city of Boston has recently banned smoking in all restaurants and bars. Would you want to see such a law passed in your city/town/country, or not?
I grew up in California where this is actually the law, and I found it to be not a problem. Of course, I don't smoke, and I do have asthma, so it is nice to be able to go out for dinner. I think it is reasonable to make an exception for bars that don't serve meals, just munchies, and for private clubs. I think a major beneficiary of these laws is the health of the restaurant staff - waitresses etc. I have patients who come in for their prenatal appointments now after a day working in the restaurant's smoking area, and they smell like an ashtray without even smoking themselves. I have to wonder how that affects their health and that of their babies.
