Curious that you should inject your personal feelings into the headline on the story about the proposed smoking ban, for nowhere in the linked article is the ban called "anti-capitalism".

People should be able to run their business the way they see fit. People have a choice to support that or not. This smoking ban is the state stepping in to run the business. That is anti-capitalist. I don't go to non-smoking bars.

Why interesting? It's my blog and I can do what I want with it. Or would you prefer the New Orleans city council ban that as well?
