If you’ve been following the city council’s initiative to ban smoking in bars and billiard halls, along with the existing ban in restaurants and office/retail buildings, you might be interested in following today’s debate on the topic (expected to begin around 10:30 a.m.) by clicking here to read the Morning News’ Dave Levinthal’s live blogging report from the council chambers.

I can’t say that I’m a big fan of the "live blogging" idea, though; when I’ve seen it in action, there are too many things going on. If this one follows form, Levinthal will be reporting on the council’s debate, making comments about the debate himself, taking comments from readers, and commenting on their comments even as they’re commenting on his comments and other commenters’ comments. See what I mean?

Maybe it’s just easier to wait until this afternoon and see what happens after it happens…
