Dear Marvin:

Imagine my dismay when the enclosed 1994 Chicago Cubs pocket schedule arrived in my mail and there, directly opposite from the increased ticket price information, I read, "smoking is not permitted in Wrigley Field's seating areas."

If you have ever been able to spend an afternoon at Wrigley Field, you know that it is a wonderful experience in and of itself. The aroma and taste of a good cigar serve only to enhance the experience, not detract from it. Can't we at least be relegated to the upper deck in a smoking section? I would hate to have to become a White Sox fan over this.

Say it ain't so, Marvin.

Editor's Response: It's pretty pathetic that in the United States of America there are places like Wrigley Field that prohibit cigar smoking outdoors. Just think about it.

Dear Marvin:

Reading the newspaper every day, I have come to the conclusion that tobacco smoke has been elevated to the nation's No. 1 health threat! Not a week goes by without reading another so-called scientific study that warns us about the dreadful consequences of secondhand smoke. Without relying on scientific tests, but trusting my eyes, nose and soundness of reasoning, I can assure your readers that the danger is minimal.
