Too much commercialism on the beach

Editor:
Dear Treasure Island decision makers and all visitors of the beach: I am writing today about the boats pulling blimps and the planes dragging banners along the beaches.

We are inundated with commercialism at every turn, in every corner, and at a constant and furious pace. Why? Please. Why does the city of Treasure Island allow this to happen in a place that residents and tourists alike go to vacate the madness?

We want to hear surf, birds, and the voice of a person sitting next to us, not the roar of a small plane slowly dragging a banner that propels us back to the real world and makes us wonder if our auto insurance offers the best rate.

We dont want these thoughts. Weve gone to the beach to vacate our lives for a period of time, and residents and tourists alike pay a hefty price to do so. And yet, even here, we are victims to more calls to consumerism.

For the love of peace and to uphold the value of what vacation and holiday should still embody, please forbid this activity in the air and water space of Treasure Island. Be trendsetters. Stand up for what is right. Protect the little bit of precious freedom we have from consumerism. If I wanted Miami Id go to Miami.
