Austin Used to Be Cool

RECEIVED Mon., May 16, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Too bad. Austin had a good thing going. Free markets were working well and everyone had a place to go. Now the holier than thou folks have taken over. Thanks to the smoking ban, my friends and I will not be spending another tourist dollar in Austin. Remember, smoking doesn't make you cool ... but a lot of cool people smoke. Austin used to be cool.
