Quincy Troupe's Drinking Law
I just read thru Alderman Quincy Troupe's proposes public drinking law a couple times and it is pretty confusing. Doesn't this law ban drinking beer at any picnic in Forest Park except a licensed picnic event? And what about tailgating at Ram's games? Nonintoxicating beer is banned too? So you can't sit in the park with an O'douls and read a book.

These ceiling fans would qualify as "smoke specific ventilation systems" for the new Wash U secondhand smoke study. Martin Pion wasn't sure to what extent ceiling fans were the subject of the new research. He is currently checking and will let us know.

We have no idea if the Wash U study tested any reputable air purification systems. The units in the tested establishment may well have been inadequate and poorly maintained. The Double D Lounge has five perfectly maintained air purification machines that remove all components of secondhand smoke from bar air. I challenge Wash U to test the air at the Double D Lounge.

I challenge the Wash U researchers to test the air at the Double D Lounge which has five of the most powerful air purification systems ever made running 24/7. These units remove all the components of secondhand smoke from bar air. If the air at Double D Lounge is found to be polluted, then I'll concede their point.
Till then, we have no idea what "ventilation systems" were in use in the establishments tested since the establishments tested remain unnamed. "Ventilation systems" could mean anything?
Some lesser filtration systems get the particles but leave the nicotine behind. Dr. Walt Sumner, President of the St. Louis Academy of Family Physicians says it is the particles that are harmful, not the chemicals.
Maybe by "ventilation systems" they meant purifans:
