Jackson Bell About a decade ago, Mike Flanagan was running his own printing company when he first discovered the power of video as a means of communication. He then realized he was in the wrong business. "I saw video being the next frontier of communication," he said. "Sometimes, it's even better than face-to-face interaction." It was 1994, and Flanagan noticed that the entertainment industry needed well-trained editors because video wasn't as accessible then as it is today.

The Burbank City Council on Tuesday directed city officials to draft stricter restrictions for businesses with designated outdoor smoking areas next to multifamily complexes following secondhand smoke complaints by neighboring residents. The new regulations would require new businesses that are located adjacent to residential buildings to install ventilation systems and patio covers over their outdoor smoking areas to divert smoke from entering residential units. At a town hall meeting last year, a woman complained about smoke entering her apartment in the Silver Winds senior complex in the Media Village, located at Magnolia Boulevard and Third Street.

I'm troubled - troubled by the inequity found in double standards and discrimination evident in Burbank demonstrated by its smoking ordinance. Within a specific parameter downtown, no one may legally smoke but for some apparent exemptions predicated on dubious justifications whose true cause can only be guessed. Two of the flagrant violations to equitable treatment are found at Café O and Gitana, two hookah lounges. They belch prodigious clouds of tobacco smoke into the very Burbank air the ordinance was created to render cleaner and healthier for all. The courtyard at Video Symphony between these hookah lounges - which sports not one but three signs indicating no smoking in Burbank - has, instead, become a smoker's Mecca that is entirely ignored by law enforcement.
