((The city has been edging toward mandatory restrictions for weeks... as the water department recorded historic lows in the city's primary reservoir.

They include a ban on watering lawns, shrubbery, and other plants... washing automobiles except at commercial facilities with low-consumption equipment or recycling systems.... and filling swimming pools.
Restaurants are prohibited from serving water unless requested, and the city is restricting the use of ornamental fountains.

Jurors in a multi-billion dollar tobacco trial in Miami have ruled cigarette makers produce a defective product that causes emphysema, lung cancer and other disease.
The ruling in the nation's first ever class action lawsuit by smokers to go to trial could expose the industry to BILLIONS of dollars in damages.
The lawsuit seeks about 200 (b) billion dollars in damages for as many as 500-thousand sick smokers or their loved ones. Cigarette makers argue that smokers knew the risks.
