Smoking Bans

Because it only took Viking-Sensei three years (and the approaching end of Errant Story) to come up with a better name for "General Discussions"

I succumbed to homework, including for my debate class. I've had only three classes so far and am already identifying flaws in my arguments and others here. I'd love to revisit this, but I haven't actually done the homework for tomorrow yet (which is about political alignments, and is due in about 11 hours), so... it might be a while before I swing back around.

I would be interested to hear your elaboration on the connections between this and the current pandemic.

Well, for "smoking in bars," substitute "congregating in groups," and for "second-hand smoke," substitute "shedding virus, either through coughing or by touching things that others will touch." See where some of the things written above (notably by BooT, who I devoutly wish was still here) take you with that substitution.
