Lighting Up In Spain No More

MIPTC is coming to you live from Madrid, where we hope to see the Museum de Prado tomorrow. And being from California, I was glad to see this news: Spain's parliament is smoke-free.

Now, I haven't been invited into Parliament yet so I can enjoy the benefits of this smoking ban. Juan Carlos I hasn't extended an invitation to the Palace, where they don't smoke either, but it's good news.

Everyone else here, however, smokes. It's nice to see the government stop, but there is no truth to the rumor an EU smoking ban will start anytime soon.

Regular readers know I occasionally enjoy a cigar. So, the only way I can protect myself from the pervasive haze everywhere is to smoke 'em while you got 'em.
