Extinguish smoking in casinos

I recently spent the evening at a local casino at a table game. There were six players at the table — five nonsmokers and a smoker seated midtable. He held his lit cigarette in his left hand, and the smoke hovered at my face. His exhaled smoke blew directly into the face of the dealer, who covered her nose and mouth with one hand and tried to deal with the other.

I asked the smoker to please move the cigarette to hiws right hand, as I had asthma issues. His answer was an emphatic, “No, I’m left-handed and I have the right to smoke here.”

We all know the law favors the smoker. I ask you: Should this be the law even though most of the players at this table were nonsmokers?

Isn’t this a no-brainer?

When are the casinos going to wake up and smell the smoke?
