Keep it up! It is both important and appreciated.

In every Cigar Aficionado are articles about our right to smoke cigars. Some of the laws are indeed over the top. But I think we do not help ourselves. This month I attended the U.S. Open at the Congressional Golf Club (great venue) with my grand kids. They had predicted over 250,000 people in attendance. I think they were correct. Not to mention that it was hot and humid. There were thousands of fans lined at every hole waiting for the leaders to play through.
My wife suggested that I bring a couple of cigars as I love to smoke while playing a round. However I thought that there would be too many people I might offend with my smoke.
In general those that had cigars stayed in back of the crowd so as not to bother anyone. However a couple of jerks bullied their way to the front with god awful smelling cigars. Even I objected to the smell, not to mention my granddaughter holding her nose.
I have a suggestion for this magazine—how about publishing an article on cigar courtesy? Maybe call it common sense?
Editor’s Note: We have always urged consideration of nonsmokers. Unfortunately, there are always a few who ruin it for the rest of us.
