Premier Issue, Autumn 92

(continued from page 24)

I still believe that the law has no business being on our books. We were not, and are not now, at war with Cuba, but nobody in our Congress has the guts to ask that it be repealed. It is an affront to our freedom of choice. And, John Kennedy ordered 1,200 Cuban cigars before he signed the order.

Today, I am enjoying the Dominican Republic cigars. They are almost equal to the Cuban product. But if I had any Cuban cigars, and I would like to have a few, nobody would confiscate them from me. Nobody, or they will wish they never knew me. That I can promise.

Very truly yours,

Irv Golden

P.S. This letter consumed a full bottle of dry white grenache. I would have retyped it but did not want to start another bottle of wine.

Editor's Response: Should I ever get to Phoenix, Irv, I would certainly look you up. I'd love to meet you--shoot the breeze and share a bottle of wine. In the meantime, I hope you got the box of special cigars I sent you last month. Guys like you are what make my job so great!

Dear Marvin:

After reading the latest edition of Cigar Aficionado,I realized that our article about Laurence Fishburne left out an acting credit. He was in the 1986 CBS TV Show
"Pee-wee's Playhouse" as Cowboy Curtis.
I do enjoy reading your magazine cover to cover and will be a life long reader. Thanks

I have been a subscriber for at least 15 years. love the articles and especially the ratings. Enjoy the pictures also. I just wish they would print only pictures with the cigars actually lit. was no big deal for awhile but in the last year,I have seen people holding unlit cigars the wrong way!! the wedding pictures are really prone to this. just doesn't seem to be right-my opinion.
