re: Career Advice - bconne1
I work with some decent-sized builders (think Donahue-Favret) and their PMs travel a fair amount, you'd not be parked behind a desk, there's interactions aplenty (subs, clients, etc.) and the pay is probably decent. Treat that like a post-grad, well-paying internship for about two years and you'...

re: Mandeville to consider banning smoking in bars - bconne1
[quote]As I've said from my first post, eventually 90 percent of bars will find it financially nessesary to ban smoking as smoking rates go down. So why the pointless regulation? Why not allow a niche market? All it does it harm business and the economy. [/quote]So we're worried about harm done to ...

re: Mandeville to consider banning smoking in bars - bconne1
[quote]But it's legal and those people are of age, so clearly the government has no problem with smoking. Why does that change in a bar? [/quote]Because someone else's choice is harming others. You don't have a right to do what you want if it harms others.[quote]These comparasions just keep getti...

[quote]Why do you demand a right have what you want but deny someone else's right to choose. [/quote]Because it isn't a right for a person to engage in an activity that has been scientifically proven to put others at risk. NASCAR drivers have thousands upon thousands of hours of training and exp...

[quote]And there it is. It's all about your delicate sensibilities. [/quote]So? You're exactly right. Smokers are fricking filthy and I don't care for them. Run along to Slidell or the Westbank or somewhere else that is more commensurate with the level of trashiness you desire. Mandeville ...

re: Mandeville to consider banning smoking in bars - bconne1
[quote]You can. Avoid places that have "harmful conditions." Make grown up decisions. [/quote]Or smokers can take their nasty, trashy selves and go elsewhere. This is all moot, really. Those with sense know how classless and unhealthy smoking is, and (as was previously mentioned) the trend is t...

re: Mandeville to consider banning smoking in bars - bconne1
[quote]It should be the decision of a private business to decide what they will allow and not allow on their own premises. [/quote]If a smoker didn't affect dozens of people around him/her, then I could agree. Unfortunately, that's not the case....
