No, I did not. Smoking is not illegal, though, and I
suppose discriminating against smokers is not, either.

What if I don't like pregnent women? People who eat
doughnuts? People who drink beer?

And, actually, practice was to work "smoking" into the
conversation to actively determine whether candidates
smoked, so they could be weeded out.

Cheers,

Sean
