Austria stubs out looming smoking ban in name of 'freedom'
so it's back to the old days where if you don't want to end up stinking of smoke (and have who knows what in your lungs), don't go out
Next they'll be legalizing taking a dump in the middle of the street in the name of 'freedom'
Or being able to drive on the sidewalk in the name of 'freedom'

I was in Vienna on July 7 2007 (Saturday?) when I used to have the odd Cuba cigar to chill out.. Went to a Strauss outdoor concert in the park and sat in a corner far away from the madding crowd. The looks I got. Talk about social control.

It's cooler in the underground.
I never knew the old Vienna before the war with its Strauss music, its glamour and easy charm
