It's very interesting that the article in the Irish Times about the closure of Gallahers seems broadly sympathetic, and unusually for this type of report, I don't think I noticed any TC soundbites creeping in.

Just an objective report.

How refreshing!

There have been a couple of things over the past year or so that have made me think that perhaps the tide is turning against the puritans; not least the fact that when I follow links to, or read articles about the antics of TC, the ensuing comments seem to be becoming more stridently critical of the whole anti-tobacco movement, with many non-smokers joining the condemnation. They are starting to outnumber the ad hom posts by the terminally brainwashed even!

Octoberfest beer maid, eh? Hmmm, best get over there then.
