It's 4:15 a.m. and time for a cigar! As a morning-drive radio personality with a 25-minute one-way trek to work, I can usually get through a Punch Rothschild or something similar before I get to the station. (If I'm late getting on the air, it must have been a particularly good cigar.)
Back at the station, it's become my happy duty to, whenever possible, spread The Gospel According to Marvin to my listeners. Reverend Marvin, keep preaching the Word, and may you not wind up like other evangelists--caught in a seedy hotel with a bunch of cheap cigars with their wrappers off.
Best wishes for a long and prosperous run.

Enjoying your magazine along with a great cigar is now and will always be one of the few diversions that makes life great. I, too, do not fit the profile as described in the premier issue. But who cares? Just the fact that I love the good life and always aspire for more should be enough. It's too bad that some took it the wrong way, but you can't reach everybody.
I am 26 years old and have been enjoying cigars for the past five or six years now. I must say that I have become a kind of snob on that issue, but it sure is fun. My license plate frame says, "Life is too short to smoke cheap cigars," and Marvin, you'd be happy to know that my love of wine is only challenged by that of cigars. They do, in fact, go well together. As I write this I am enjoying a cigar whose origin I won't mention, along with a ten-year-old Tawny. Life sure can get good sometimes.
