I would like to express my sincerest condolences to any of your readers who have suffered personally and to your great country in this, your hour of need.
One cannot comprehend the feelings of despair, horror and bewilderment that you all must be feeling.
I would like to express my professional "well done" to the amazing efforts of the emergency services, be they firefighters, police, medics or "ordinary" citizens.
As a male in my mid-50s who has spent his life in uniform and thought he had seen it all, I take no shame in the fact that I have shed many tears over the last few days. People are openly crying in the streets of Melbourne. My 6-year-old grandson and his classmates are currently writing letters of best wishes to the people of New York. No one is untouched.
My sincerest regards to you all.
Kerry M. Maloney
I'm a fairly new subscriber to Cigar Aficionado, which means I've had it for probably only the past two months. I just got done reading your December issue, with the cover story, "Captain Courageous," about New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. I just wanted to take the time and commend you on such a fantastic magazine. It goes beyond the level of just a magazine dealing with cigars, but encompasses everything that's going on with reality today. I just felt that you should be praised for it.
