Study after study shows that the fears of lost business from a smoking ban are just that: irrational fears. One local business in Rose's hometown of Lincoln has learned that just the opposite occurs; business actually can INCREASE after a smoking ban is enacted. That's not a isolated example either...
And as for Rose's assertation that the studies of the effects of second-hand smoking are flawed, I'll let Surgeon General Richard Carmona address that:
"The debate is over. The science is clear. Secondhand smoke is not a mere annoyance but a serious health hazard."Baghdad Bob would be proud.
