“Not really. I go home smelling a lot cleaner.”
“Yes. Many of my friends in the service industry have lost income, as have several bars and restaurants in the downtown area.”
“I come to Lawrence all the time, and I think it’s a definite positive. I like not coming home smelling like an ashtray.”
“Yes. The comforting thing about smoking in bars is I didn’t have to smell everyone’s aftershave, but now every time I go out to a club, I have to smell eight different brands of it.”
