    ...that would impact Target Field's decision to snub smokers.    It is a beautiful field, but they can keep it if this is gonna be the way they treat their customers.

    It's become a culture war at this point, and the left has somehow found itself on the side of intolerance having cherry-picked this single group as worthy of every bit of disrespect they can heave upon it.  Truly disgusting seeing our own side become quasi-James Dobsons over a grievance so trivial in the grand scheme of things.

    •  Doesn't Minneapolis have an ordinance? (0+ / 0-)

      Prohibiting smoking on public property. I don't think you can smoke on the sidewalks, streets or public parking lots.

        I think you're just thinking of Hennepin County public buildings as opposed to the entire city of Minneapolis.

          The expanded policy prohibits the use of all tobacco products on all Hennepin county-owned and single-tenant leased sites or within a 45-foot radius of street-level entrances to these properties (whichever distance is further). This includes county grounds, structures, parking garages, lots and ramps, county-owned vehicles and equipment, and the entire area on Sixth Street underneath the Government Center.
