Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
bundle of cigars, Winter 92/93

As I slowly glance through CIGAR AFICIONADO, enjoying the cigar and downing another glass of wine, I look forward to our "resurrection."
Editor's Response: Irv, the second coming is here.

As I smoke a favorite Honduran, the following poem comes to mind:
Divine in hookah,
sublime in pipe,
When trimmed and tapered,
sweet and ripe.
But thy true devotees,
O Tobacco, prefer by far
Thy naked beauty,
give me a cigar!
--In Praise of Tobacco , Lord Byron

Your vision is a grand one, and I'm impressed.
Congratulations on an auspicious beginning, and may the run be as long as a Cohiba and every bit as pleasurable.

Some people dream--even a little.
Some people do--even a little bit.
A very few people dream and do. But to dream beautiful dreams and to brilliantly execute those dreams is what makes life rich and rewarding.
Marvin, you have dreamed and created for us all.
CIGAR AFICIONADO is the first magazine, in fact, the first media vehicle in years, that makes me happy. HAPPY. Not serious. Not pensive. Not thoughtful. Not compassionate. Not reverent. Not! HAPPY!! Truly and laughingly happy.
Do you realize that virtually nobody in the world is trying to make me happy--except your new magazine and my wife.
Best regards and congratulations,

I was truly delighted with the premier issue; the concept fills a void too long left unattended.
It is right and verifies the mutual experiences cigar lovers share, both past and present, and it heralds a call to arms for rebelling against and educating the "ignoramuses."
Cigars have been my constant companion for 35+ years, and I consider them my most faithful and truest of friends--to share with only the deserving and to comfort my most solitary moments.
