Dear Marvin:

I am a pianist and have been performing professionally 23 of my 34 years. I subscribe to three magazines: Air & Space Smithsonian, The Piano Stylist and CIGAR AFICIONADO. I am a charter subscriber, and yours is the only magazine I have ever read cover to cover. My next recording project will be in the mail for you and your staff to enjoy because every time I look down at the keys of my piano, I see 36 maduro coronas on a field of white.

Dear Marvin:

I'd like to tell you a short story regarding my cigar smoking. My wife says that the smell of cigars makes her physically sick. Well, this presented quite a problem for me, so we have compromised. After a cigar I must brush my teeth, take a shower, brush my teeth again and use mint mouthwash. I have been doing this procedure for over a year, but she still complains. As the old saying goes, "Maybe it's time to change wives." (I am KIDDING--hopefully this will not end our relationship!)

Dear Marvin - Regarding the letter from Peter Worsham in the August issue, I lived in Havana from 1997 until 2000 as a member of the U.S. Interests Section. The GOOD cigars are indeed heavily controlled and expensive no matter where you buy them including Cuba. That said there was always counterfeit/seconds cigars to be had on the black market, but so easily available that the Cuban government had to be aware or complicit in their production and sale. In the end, although not top of the line cigars it was Cuban tobacco which I think is the best in the world.
Changing the subject, I just returned from a car trip to Eastern North Carolina and was surprised to see farm fields of growing tobacco. These same fields use to grow soy beans, cotton, and corn, while the owners were being paid NOT to grow tobacco. Can anyone tell me what has happened? Chinese demand? Domestic demand? Other?
Thanks for the fine magazine.

William Mills
