Don't ruin a good thing

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2003

The Triangle Club is a wonderful place - in fact the only place downtown - to grab a beer and a dog for lunch. The bartenders are friendly and the conversation is good, perhaps because the patrons are free to smoke or not, as they see fit. I would hate to see the efforts of the Juneau Clean Air Coalition end such an interesting and convivial atmosphere.

In a free market society that market, not the government, should leave it to the proprietor to determine whether an establishment is to allow its patrons to smoke or not. Soon enough the last smoker will expire from overtaxation and Ms. Cahill can have her way. Until then she should butt out.
