Brickbat: Smoked Out

The Boston Parks
and Recreation Commission has banned smoking in all city
. Those caught violating the ban face a $250 fine. Barbara
Ferrer, executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission,
said the ban will make the parks safer for nonsmokers. “Secondhand
smoke in any concentration is dangerous,” she said. “There’s no
safe level of exposure.”
