Ed Rendell

As some of you outside the Commonwealth may know, our governor signed a smoking ban into law (if that’s the exact terminology) a year ago Sept. 11. As somebody who frequents those affected public areas I gotta tell you, it feels incredible to be able to breathe when you eat (or sit at the bar). I didn’t realize how badly that shit smelled until we walked through a couple people puffing right outside the door on our last visit to Sharky’s (Latrobe, PA). Only way to get to the parking lot was straight through.

Thank you, Ed!

My hair doesn’t smell now when I get home.
My clothes don’t reek.
My lungs and heart thank you deeply.
