Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Vince McMahon, Nov/Dec 99
(continued from page 5)
I have been a cigar aficionado for several years and I love your magazine, but I had to respond to your choices in the top 100 cigar smokers.
I could not believe you chose Bill Clinton and Rudolph Giuliani. Both these men are the antithesis of what cigar smoking is all about: freedom. They represent government encroachment on personal freedom and liberties in all its ugliness. Bill Clinton has spearheaded the antitobacco witch-hunt that your magazine continuously deplores, and he pushes government intrusion on all issues, including our constitutional right to bear arms. You even admit that you don't know if he smokes! Likewise, Rudolph Giuliani tramples the rights of his own people, which he has proven by his willingness to confiscate and sell private cars without the due course of a trial.
Just because these men are successful politicians does not mean they deserve to be recognized as great cigar lovers. A true cigar lover embodies the freedom and pleasure that cigar smoking brings.
