Take a deep breath and look at the big picture...

Is it more worrisome that a couple bars *might* be snuffed out by the ban now
by public policy, or should we be more concerned about dozens of lives being
snuffed out every year because public policy failed to control a known killer -
first and second hand smoke?

I'm sorry, but running a bar that depends on smokers is something people have
*chosen* to do.  If you think the need for tobacco at your bar will cause your
bar to die, maybe it's time to kick the habit and reinvent yourself.

Ten years from now, history will shine on the side of ban proponents.  You want
to stay ahead of the City and County to the east, no?
