Editor's Response: Given the candidates running for president, maybe a smoke-filled room would help clear the air.

Despite your sexist ad: "wife who won't let you smoke at home", etc., there are women out there who smoke cigars and are interested in your new publication. Count me in on the cigar publication.
Editor's Response: We're not sexist. In fact, we hope the ranks of female cigar smokers swell in the coming years.
The sad reality, however, is that many women seem to be "programmed" against letting men light up. It is especially frustrating that we can't smoke in our own homes, my home included. There needs to be some kind of compromise.

I certainly enjoy cigars and my wife likes them, too. She likes them because her father used to smoke cigars and when I light up, it brings back fond memories for her with such emotional overtones that she becomes docile, like I am her father substitute! Truly, cigars are unique items which conjure up much about the smoker's personality, style and savoir-faire.
There is nothing finer than a good smoke, except a good magazine that reports on a good smoke.
I look forward to your publication.

I'm an American who smuggles "Cubanos." My wife says about my smoking at home: "If it makes him happy, what the hell."
Put me on the list.
P.S. If you need some info on the L.A. cigar scene, an occasional contributor, or just a pep talk, call. Good luck.

Editor's Response: It's a shame we can't publish Mark's name in full as we would love to give recognition to his very smart wife.
