In Search of Cause

February 23, 1986

In his quest for political notoriety, it would seem Richard Roe ("No-Smoking Law to End All," Feb. 9) is in search of a cause that will emblazon his name in lights.

I propose that Mr. Roe channel his energies away from his "humanitarian gesture" (ridding this small community of smokers and, thereby, cleaning up even the air out of doors) and toward a human rights campaign that would declare Del Mar a sanctuary city for Central American refugees.

If we are going to speak of humanitarian gestures, let's do so. If we're going to speak of political opportunists and publicity mongers, let's at least be honest.
