Today begins the smoking ban on Crossgates property. So no more walking through a cloud of smoke when entering or leaving the mall. I know this has smokers up in arms but I have to say I am not upset at all. I hate walking in and out of the mall with my daughter and we have to hold our breath. It's also the 25th anniversary of "World No Tobacco Day". An attempt by the World Health Organization to halt all tobacco use for one day.

You can learn more today from my friend Christine O'Donnell today at Noon on WTEN.
