Beijing to ban all smoking at 2008 Olympics

Read about it here.

It’s certainly a good idea, but I’m not convinced it’s feasible considering how much the Chinese love their cigarettes. We banned it in my office building in Beijing, but that never stopped workers from smoking in the elevators, bathrooms and stairways. (I still remember the a-holes who would get on the elevator with the lit cigarette smoldering in their cupped hand, as if we all didn’t know what was going on as the elevator filled with smoke.)

I doubt if they will manage to do it. At bamboo garden in Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai, the non-smoking area is hazy and smoky enough.
