Smoke!

My aunt, uncle, and 2 cousins came up today so that my uncle could play in a poker tournament at the casino. I wanted to know what they were doing for dinner, and they said they were going to meet my uncle at the casino for dinner at the buffet. It's been several years since I've been inside the casino, so I wanted to go, too. While I had fun at dinner, and the food was extremely good, the worst thing was the smoke in the entire building. It was disgusting! The casino is run by the Seneca Indians, and the land is considered theirs. So, being they it's Indian property, they do not have to follow NY state No Smoking laws in restaurants and public places. It's so disheartening to know that I'll probably never go there again because my lungs just couldn't tolerate it. I also can't believe that smoke didn't bother me that much way back in the day when I used to frequent the local bars every weekend. Being that I've been on oxygen for almost 10 years, my lungs can tell there's smoke somewhere a mile away! YUCK!!!

The casino here is drenched in smoke, too. I like the restaurant there, but I have to walk through the entire casino to get to the restaurant; thus, I don't go often.

I can't imagine the damage that is being done to the employees' lungs at these places.
