Sunday Levity: A royal fag

Bhutan’s little royal secret

Bhutan may be the world’s first smoke-free country — but visitors to the King’s royal palace may not be entirely free from the dangers of secondary smoke. That’s because tobacco is one component of King Jigme Singye Wangchuk’s gross personal happiness.
