Comments  
I HAVE WRITTEN A LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF WORLDWIDE SAIL & DIVE
(WWS&D) TO COMMENT ON SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH THE PHILIPPINE SIREN. 
SMOKING WAS THE MAJOR ONE BUT THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHERS, AS WELL.  IN A
REPLY LETTER TO ME THE CEO OF WWS&D TRIED TO PASS ON THE SMOKING ISSUE
AS SOMETHING FOR THE SHIP'S "TOUR GUIDE" TO HANDLE. I QUICKLY SET
HIM STRAIGHT THAT THAT WAS AN ADMISISTRATION PROBLEM, THAT SHE DID HER BEST
WITHOUT A CLEARLY DEFINED SMOKING POLICY, AND THAT HE SHOULD NOT PASS THE
BUCK BUT ISSUE SPECIFIC RULES THAT COVERED THE GUESTS AND CREW!
