You Were Warned

I'm not going to name names, but you (so-called) "progressive" supporters of DC's smoking ban were warned that banning smoking in bars was a stepping stone to banning smoking completely. The trendsetter state California takes it to the next level.
SACRAMENTO -- Already barred from lighting up in restaurants, theaters and the office, Californians may also be banned from smoking in their apartments under a proposal passed by the state Senate on Thursday.The measure would allow landlords to prohibit smoking in apartment buildings they own to protect nonsmoking tenants from secondhand smoke.

Sure landlords should be able to set their own rules, but this is the first legislative step to mandating that every apartment building be smoke-free. I give that kind of legislation another couple of years before it's the law of the land. Smoke while you still can, my friends.
