  • I do that all the time myself. If I see someone on the sidewalk smoking, I get a good breath at least 10 feet in advance. If they're walking the same direction as me and I'm catching up, I'll often slow down.

    I really think that nobody should ever smoke in public, except in some sort of designated smoking location. It's just fucking rude to inflict your toxins on someone else.

    I have mixed feelings about legislating this sort of thing. On one hand, I love the restaurant/bar smoking ban here in Minneapolis. Concerts are so much more enjoyable. OTOH, because it's just Hennepin county, and the ban in neighboring Ramsey county exempts bars, it really hurts the Hennepin county bars. This sort of things needs to happen state-wide, or better yet nation-wide, in order to not unfairly hurt some businesses.

    And then there's the whole thing that laws suck. People should just act civilly. I know that's awfully idealistic, but my anarchist side says more laws are bad.
