Puget Sound, Tacoma Parks Smoking Ban and Microfinance in Washington

Diana Opong

What kind of place is Puget Sound? Natives (and friends) Knute Berger and Timothy Egan duke it out. Also, the Tacoma–Pierce County Health Department and Metro Parks want a ban on smoking in parks. The University of Washington already bans outdoor smoking on campus. Should smoking be banned outdoors? We'll talk about it. Plus, microfinancing gives poor and low–income people access to loans and other banking services. Around the world these loans have helped people start businesses and stabilize their families. Could similar programs help Western Washington during the recession? We'll explore.
