We are a much maligned minority. Does the phrase, "Pipes and cigars prohibited" stick in your craw? I am smoking a cigar, and I am beginning to feel the world closing in on me.
There are fewer and fewer public places in which I feel comfortable taking a draw on a cheroot--even some of the club-like leather and brass restaurants now ban cigars. Even the Palm in Washington, D.C. seems disconcerted when there is even a suggestion that a patron (meaning me) might fire up a heater. What is this world coming to?
I really do not want to impose my fancy on others if they want to avoid it, and I will not, but cigarette smokers seem to have a real advantage. Our voice must be heard, if even only by ourselves. Your magazine might serve that noble purpose.
Good luck and Congratulations,
Bruce D. Collins
