That looks lovely. An oasis of smoke. That would be a mirage, wouldn't it?

Have you been to these airports - I think LAX is one - that have these glass rooms set aside for smokers. Looking in you see blue smoke through not so clean glass, and smokers on benches looking like so many derelicts, regardless of their business suits, Louis Vuitton hand-bags, and expensive shoes; everyone of them hunched over his/her cigarette, sucking up hot particulates as though they were on death row. I suppose they are - I suppose we all are.

I'll bet someone could earn a few bucks with a pamphlet on smoking around the world. Locations of legal smoke spots. e.g. at the Detroit Airport you need to ride the moving sidewalks to where they end, and then walk about a quarter of a mile to the last watering hole where smoking is allowed. You can smell it, and hear the coughing as you approach. They'll let you linger over a cup of coffee, but you must purchase something. The book could be called "The Smoking Lamp." Somebody probably has a website already.

V good idea. One of the Corfucian Irregulars, at a loose end after completing the next Booker winner, could be looking for an idea and see his next mission here.
