I'm talking about the recent "nightclub reform legislation" proposed by Mayor Gavin Newsom, which "makes it illegal to loiter within 10 feet of a club for more than three minutes." Does taking a breather from a hot club or loading your van with gear fall under the exempt "other activity"? Does this mean that nightclubbing smokers will be forced to purchase automobiles in order to have somewhere to sit and suck their cancer sticks in peace? Snot: do the words "ultralounge bottle service" ring a bell? 2
