In case you are one of the 4 or 5 people in the world who actually enthusiastically followed the smoking ban debate here in Springfield, you will be pleased to know that you can watch the whole thing over again –this time in Bloomington. How lucky the residents of Bloomington-Normal are, they get to see this debate in stereo (in both Bloomington and Normal).
Actually, I’m amazed at the number of people around here who seem so tired of the smoking ban debate that took place here. It’s not like it went on for years and I think there were some important issues at stake that affect almost everyone in the city. Then again, I think the drug-tests-for-all-city-officials flap is a bore; a solution in search of a problem. But that’s me.
