A poll currently attracting votes and comments on the St. Louis Business Journal web site reads:
“Would you vote in favor of a law that would prohibit smoking in all workplaces, public buildings, offices, restaurants, bars and casinos in the city of St. Louis?
Yes, but I think bars and casinos should be exempted”
When I first checked the poll late on Thursday night 70% favored smoke-free air. [Note that the poll talks about “ban” or “prohibit smoking” rather than phrasing it positively as “favoring smoke-free air.”] The poll has swung dramatically in favor of smoky air and as of 4:30 pm Friday, March 13, the numbers are:
Yes 45% /No 51% /Yes, but…. 4%
I urge you to vote, and also check out the comments. If you have any comments yourself please post them here but also alert me via e-mail: mpion [“at” sign] swbell.net.
