Dear Editor: It seems like that this town is not very happy with itself. We have to have restaurants that serve beer come to our fair city. What about restaurants that don't serve it? I take it our city leaders don't need them. Because Lexington got a smoking ban, we need one now. I hope Danville has enough funds to put more police on duty to protect the public from the dreaded smoker, since they put everybody's life on the line every time they light up. If you followed the Lexington smoking ban, then you saw how most decent restaurants handled the problem of keeping smokers at their place.
