Smoking Man

(Holland, OH) While sitting in the parking lot of the Spring Meadows shopping center today, I noticed the man on your left puffing a cigarette. I was struck by how lonely he seemed, as smokers are beginning to run out of places in which they can enjoy their vice.

He then climbed into the car immediately behind him, and a minute later a woman (presumably his wife or girlfriend) hopped into the car with some shopping bags. This man not only has been booted outside, but no longer feels free to smoke in his own vehicle.

Yes, I am an ex-smoker, and my bias is likely showing here, but my suspicion is that the proverbial pendulum has swung a bit too far to the anti-smoking side.
