Max Cooper responds

Thanks for reading the piece, Sidney.

I worked hard to write a neutral story, one that I felt was only partly about smoking. The risks of smoking made a good background for the truly interesting part — how the characters in the story, and in our community, navigate a changing environment in which their habits, desires and lifestyles are regulated. In the case of B & B's regulars, their response has been to draw together into a tight group of holdouts.
