Several years ago, the Abilene City Council was deliberating a City-wide ban on smoking in public places. The common cry from business owners is that such a ban would hurt their businesses. A certain well-known restaurant owner said that he felt that such a ban would actually cause an upsurge in business because non-smokers would be free to go out again without having to deal with second-hand smoke. The observation of that restaurant owner became the reality experienced by many businesses. I feel that this aspect of the smoke-free Texas movement needs to be better publicised.

Thank you!
