The Journal: No smoke, and no ire.

EARLY days it may be, but it seems that despite all the huffing and puffing that preceded the ban on smoking, it's working well.

The threatened opposition has yet to materialise, if indeed it exists to any appreciable degree, and more people are doing what nature intended: breathing clean air and enjoying it.
