To all of you who have been blessed to have experienced the expertise of the designers, chefs and staff of Windows on the World and Cellar in the Sky, I hope that the memories of your experience last you forever. Remember the victims and their families as you reminisce of fine wines, great cigars, memorable dinners, dear friends. The victims live in our memories each time we think of that special place.
I will never forget that I had my first glass of single malt there, looking over Brooklyn and marveling at the view and exquisite taste of the amber liquid in my glass. I can't stop thinking of the prep crew in the restaurant at the time of the disaster, the sous chef making orders for purveyors, the servers smoking a cigarette, watching the disaster unfold below, the terror in them.
My heart goes out to the families of my brothers and sisters in this industry. May they find solace.

I hope you folks are safe and well in light of the recent terrorist tragedy. Somehow, even my enjoyment of a good smoke has been affected. It makes me feel guilty to light one up. How sad! I logged on to your site and reread one of my summer issues of Cigar Aficionado to begin a move back to normal life. That is what those people want - to disrupt our way of life and not just to attack our people and cities. As much as I have been waving my American flag, I fear that if we do not force ourselves to move back to normal living, we will be waving a white flag, instead. Hang in there, America!
