Say No to the Smoking Ban

RECEIVED Mon., April 4, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Thank you, Louis Black, for sorting through the smoking ban controversy and explaining its potentially tragic impact on the live music culture of Austin (“Page Two,” April 1).
    We believe that the majority of voters will come to the same conclusion if we can reach them and motivate them to vote May 7.
    If you would like to help, please check out our Web site,, and see how you can help collect contact information for sympathetic voters and the money needed to inspire them to vote May 7.
    Terrible, and irreversible, things can happen if reasonable people stand by and do nothing.
