News Channel 15 headlined a story today by reporting the effect of the Smoking Ban on Fort Wayne bars. Their report aimed to have a conclusion about some of the numbers bar owners turned into City Council members on Tuesday night.
In their story, however, they point out a quote from an independent certified planner who found the information ambiguous at best.
So how can this be a conclusion about the effect?
Some people turned in some numbers. They are trying to get attention that they are in danger. There IS a real story here and it is people are hurting.
10% of someone's budget isn't the same as 10% of someone else's, true---but 10% WILL break some people. And it has.
