An original short story by Margery Bayne.
“Y’know, they’re trying to pass this law to ban smoking in restaurants and bars?” Blake -- smoking addict and floundering journalist -- shares drinks, cigarettes, and a debate about smoking ban legislation with Kristen -- an old flame and now a successful Californian businesswoman -- when she’s back in town. He regrets it.
