Smoke Freedom Day II

CBS 21 has a video of "Smoke Freedom Day" protest in Harrisburg. That's me in the video, absorbing second-hand smoke to make a political statement, like Sam Adams. ABC 27 also covered the event, but the video is not online yet.

My best quote was cut, but it basically went like this:

Q: "Don't you get annoyed being surrounded by smokers?"
A:"Yes, I hate the smell and can never get it out of my clothes - but I also get annoyed by people who laugh too loud and talk too much, but I don't think that should be illegal"

GrassrootsPA has a roundup of stories on the debate over the smoking ban bill. CBS 21 also had a story of bowling alleys voluntarily going smoke-free - without an edict from government.

Also, Eat 'n Park restaurants went smoke-free voluntarily. They must have seen a market for smoke-free restaurants and moved to fill that need.
