Choppy conditions prevailed one recent evening along the Florida coast as we progressed toward Miami.  We were behind several aircraft headed in the same direction when Miami Center told a Delta flight to slow to 260 knots in the descent.  The exchange went something like this:

"260 knots?"

Miami Center:
"Yes.  The regional jet ahead of you has slowed."

"Is he towing a banner?"
