Smoke 'Em While You Can

That's the motto posted above one of our favorite neighborhood "dives." It's only a matter of days until Washington smokers get the boot from all bars and restaurants. Not only do they have to leave the premises, they have to be 25 feet away! Sheesh! In the words of that famous cultural critic Stephen Sondheim, "When did the whole world become one big operating room?"

So, it seems fitting to post this piece from Marjane Satrapi as a last gasp (so to speak) celebration of smoking featured this week in the New York Times.

As my boyfriend says about smokers: "We had a good run."
