1. Is it just me, or do the DC bars seem way more crowded since the smoking ban went into effect? Wonder where I can find the latest revenue numbers on the matter? (this is the latest news article I found with my cursory Google search). Walking home every day I pass at least 45 bars and they're all bursting at the seems, even with the ice, even the really bad ones. I think people who don't want their clothes to smell terrible and their lungs to rot out have been rejoicing with the drink. And Hallelujah.
2. Seriously, whose responsibility is it to clear the sidewalks and bus stops, and why was my H1 30 minutes late this morning and full up o' people?
3. Why are the LOSTaways (DCeiver's term) so intent on getting back to the original island when the Others can get to them there quite easily (and have been since they crash-landed)?
