Smoking ban shelved?

Apparently there's just too much other stuff to consider, and Street says he's not going to strong-arm City Council on the smoking ban, which appeared one vote short a few weeks back. Will it rise again in the fall, or are too many local pols too scared of the bar owners down the block?

This sucks.

But I hope that sooner or later, the ban will be enacted. Once the data really pours in about how the ban has affected health and economic issues in places like New York, I don't see how they're going to be able to stop it.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: all of the smokers I know in NYC were against the smoking ban. But all of them, a few years later, think that it was a good thing.
