Smoking ban advances

The Washington Post reports here that the Virginia Senate passed an indoor smoking ban on Monday, by a vote of 21-18.

I'd say the motivating force behind this is that the majority of the senators are hoping to be able to sit down in a restaurant where they can hear the music or see the TV screen or feel the fireplace or avail themselves of the next available table for the first time in years without someone in the dinner party wailing and moaning and gnashing his or her teeth.
