LETTER: Use your brain, smokers!

The Editor,

What’s wrong with this picture? It shows a butt on parched, brown grass. The butt was not crushed out.

Come on, smokers! If you really have to smoke, can’t you at least show some intelligence and responsibility by making sure that every "sickaret" butt you discard is completely extinguished so that it won’t ignite another wild or urban fire?

I see smokers flicking their butts out car windows and dropping them on sidewalks and grass every day.
