Edgar Allan Poe

Poe's advice for Poe Plaza

As graduates of the University of Baltimore we are happy about the Poe statue makeover ("Edgar Allan Poe statue at University of Baltimore gets a makeover," Jan. 19).

Having been familiar with UB for 20 years, we have seen plenty of tar and nicotine emitters at the Poe Plaza and elsewhere on campus.

If the restorers want the makeover to last longer, they should put up a sign reading: "No Smoking — Nevermore."
