bundle of cigars, Winter 92/93

(continued from page 6)

My country continues to be oppressed. I cannot forget my fellow countrymen who have shed blood in the fight for freedom and their democratic beliefs.

For these and other reasons I am returning this magazine and the bill.

Editor's Response: I regret your response. Please understand that this is a magazine devoted to the cigar and cigar lovers. It is not about politics. To publish a magazine like CIGAR AFICIONADO and not include coverage on Cuban cigars would not be possible since they are such an important element in the international market. Other Cubans have taken pride in their heritage and expressed respect for Cuban cigars and their rightful place as one of the truly great natural products in the world.

Dear Marvin:

For this cynic--I confess to being one--you have somewhat restored my faith in humanity to know that there are still some fine people around, like Marvin Shanken. And I thank you for that.

Your magazine, CIGAR AFICIONADO, has far exceeded my expectations. It is a well put-together periodical, with excellent pictures, facts, articles and opinions. Those of you who had a hand in its birth are to be commended for a job well done.

There are about 68 different titled magazines on the stands devoted entirely for and about women. CIGAR AFICIONADO should make it about five or six magazines for and about men. Thanks to CIGAR AFICIONADO we are getting there--we need all the help we can get.
