Secondhand Smoke

October 03, 1994

There are several trendy restaurants on Sunset Boulevard situated within view of a sign that reads: "Secondhand Smoke Kills." Outside those restaurants, tables are set up on the sidewalk, some as close to the curb as four feet.

On one particular evening, as I was driving in bumper-to-bumper traffic down Sunset at the dinner hour, I noticed that most of those outdoor tables were filled.

To be sure, there wasn't a cigarette in sight. But I wondered how many of those alfresco diners were aware of the auto exhaust poisons they ingested and inhaled with every bite and breath.
