I've been a fan of your fair city for decades. last tuesday, my family and I spent a most enjoyable afternoon shopping at your many wonderful stores in the historic area. we had just decided to shop on the other side of the street when we were accosted by someone who informed us that smoking was not tolerated anywhere in your city..not in parking lots, sidewalks, or any outside place, not even in the middle of the street. at first, we thought she was just a fanatic. we stopped buying, shopping and left your city. if those in your community have such hatred and disgust for smokers, I suppose that is your right. I think the least you need to do is post warnings that smokers are unwelcome in your city. please let us know that our dollars and patronage are better spent in more understanding communities.
