"hold" is a relative term. You got a year and a half.

I'm glad, much as I detested smoking "nazi" exuberance about his work to ban smoking on short flights  .... it's spread a lot since, and  it's much better in public spaces when we don't smoke the place up

Frank Lautenberg didn't exactly champion individual liberty, did he?

he championed a balancing act between individual choice and collective effect that hadn't existed  ... before, individuals would impose smoke and it hits everybody.

when that doesn't happen, your smoke can't reach me in a public space,  light up in my view

but haven't seen an affordable ventilation system produce that result yet

bars are not "public places" -they are open to the public. Then again, the left hates property rights anyway. Notice also the war on food, guns-the left despises all freedom!

Thank you, Senator Lautenberg, for aiding those of us who aren't smokers to remain so.

The airline smoking rules were ridiculous. Smokers would take the non smoking seats, then go to the smoking section, where there were always open seats, and smoke, then go back to their seats. Very annoying to those who were only able to get a smoking seat. Now, I enjoy a good cigar as much as anyone, but not in a hotel room or on an airplane. So, he did something positive.

I know, let's pass a law allowing all smokers to do so INflight, but OFF the airplane. Just helping natural selection along a bit.

Do you remember an Aloha Airlines flight having the ceiling peel off inflight ? Unfortunately a couple of people died but a cartoon of the open top aircraft was advertised as the new smoking section.

I passed legislation in my city to ban all smoking in all buildings ! Now we have folks standing outside during their breaks having smoke ring contests ! LOL

You should ban them from being anywhere near the doorway going in or out of the buildings. It is really such an assault on the senses of someone that goes days and maybe weeks without encountering smoke. And for those that have to run the gauntlet day after day it is really disgusting.

They have designated area's for smoking !

Liberals love to tell us they are all about science unlike the GOP followers. Same people who thought a you tube video was what caused Hilly's ambassador to perish.

One of the riches guys in the Senate. Very generous. With other people's money. Just like all liberals.
10:36 PM on 06/03/2013
Please ! Get out of here with that old song and dance ! The GOP is just as generous with other people's money with the difference being the GOP favors corporations and the wealthy when they dole out our money !

Unless it's a public property or service that can be privatized, so rent or an admission or use fee can be charged.

It's now an established fact: Sam Stein likes to watch others argue and could care less what Sen. Lautenberg actually contributed with his service to our country.

Interesting. In Hollywood along Melrose Ave a "chicken hawk" is someone that is out to pick up young boys. Or that was what they were called back in the '60's. Today it is someone that wants war without ever serving... Bad characters all round.
