Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Andy Garcia, Mar/April 2004
I have been subscribing to Cigar Aficionado for over 10 years. I have read with interest many of the interviews that you have conducted during those years, but none of them affected me as deeply as your most recent interview with Gen. Tommy Franks.
For the last hour or so, while sitting on my patio and smoking my favorite Montecristo No. 2, with the sound of the ocean waves in the background, I found myself totally enthralled by your insightful questions and the general’s thoughtful answers. This is an issue of your great magazine that I shall keep forever.
Seeing the photograph of Gen. Tommy Franks, Vice-Admiral Keating and Lieutenant Caceres sitting in one of Saddam Hussein’s palaces smoking what appears to be Cuban Cohibas begs a question that I wish you would have posed to Gen. Franks.
Does General Franks, a beacon of democracy, smoke Cuban cigars?
