Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Smokey the Stinkpot," the latest No-Goodnik to butt-in on the action at 7th and Montana. This morning, when he thought no one was looking, Smokey peeled the "No Smoking" sticker off his table at Our Favorite Starbucks, took a quick look around to make sure the coast was clear, and lit up a cigarette which he kept hidden behind a copy of Motor Home Magazine. I watched, dumbfounded, as the smoke billowed in the direction of a pregnant woman at a nearby table. "I smell smoke," I said loudly, "Is somebody smoking?!?" He pretended to ignore me until I eventually moved to another table, out of his range. Moments later, I dialed 310-458-8923 -- the City of Santa Monica's No Smoking Hotline -- to report the incident. California State Law prohibits smoking within 20-feet of entrances, exits or operable windows of a public building. I then called the City Attorney's Office -- to urge them to hurry -- and learned that violators of the City's No Smoking Laws pay an initial fine of $250 which generally increases to $1,000 based on court and other administrative costs. Let's hope this Ash-Hole gets what he deserves ...!
