In January, I reported on a Traverse City business which had made a choice to limit smoking to certain times and days. It drew a little conversation from a typical fascist liberal who felt it should still be the government’s responsibility to limit individual rights. Well in following up on this we find there will be a change upcoming.Nancy Freund of Little Bo’s has gone the extra step and made her business completely smoke free as of February 22. She has done so WITHOUT the government mandating it, and is likely to reap benefits as a result. Though it may not work for some businesses, a smoke free environment can be quite popular for some who wish to patronize her type of business yet have difficulty breathing in a smoky environment.
We applaud her and her efforts to control her environment independent of “big brother” government interference in the affairs of her business. This move also has another advantage over a government mandate.. If her business suffers because of her policy change, she can always modify it.
