Spittin’ mad 

To the editor,

Though I am a faithful reader and will remain so, it still stands that I was shocked and extremely disappointed by The Coast having chosen to run a large advertisement for a tobacco product in its pages.

I have seen mistakes similar to this made by your paper before: running advertisements that do not seem to fit with The Coast's usual support for local companies and products, and the health-conscious, active lifestyles of its readers. Such instances have always been quickly reconciled.

Though I do understand the financial aid that running ads from large and powerful companies can provide, there are other, less degrading ways to stay in the black. I hope to never see an ad for this type of product in your fine paper again.
