Regarding the March 30 Travel article “Is that smoke I detect on the sands of Miami? Time to butt in.”:

I was dismayed that The Post would print such a holier-than-thou piece about smoking on Miami beaches in the Travel section. I am sure the author enjoyed her time at the beach, jumping up at the very whiff of smoke to admonish other beach-goers, just as I am sure those bathers enjoyed the finger-wagging. But this piece was inappropriate for this section. If you have an issue with a legislative or regulatory issue, write an op-ed and put it on the opinion pages. The Travel section isn’t the place.
