Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Vince McMahon, Nov/Dec 99

I have been a satisfied subscriber to your fine periodical for over three years. I am now compelled to write regarding my extreme displeasure with your choice for the cover story of the latest issue of 2001 Cigar Aficionado.
A feature story on "professional" wrestling is something I would expect from Smoke magazine, but certainly not from you! Surely you can find a subject matter more deserving of your periodical than the societal abomination that is the WWF (or WCW, or whatever).
The cover of your magazine has been graced previously with such noteworthy cigar smokers as Winston Churchill, JFK, Groucho Marx and any number of other historical and celebrity figures who represent the best of our culture. Stooping to provide Vince McMahon with the same exposure is a disservice to your readership.
I was mildly disappointed with the soap opera diva featured on the cover of the last issue; I find this issue's cover disturbing, to say the least. Please don't dumb down your outstanding magazine in an effort to pander to the lowest common denominator of our society.

My business travels frequently take me to Santo Domingo. On my previous trip to Santo Domingo, I had a free afternoon and decided to hire a taxi to take me to tour the cigar factories in Santiago.
