Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Premier Issue, Autumn 92
(continued from page 24)
I still believe that the law has no business being on our books. We were not, and are not now, at war with Cuba, but nobody in our Congress has the guts to ask that it be repealed. It is an affront to our freedom of choice. And, John Kennedy ordered 1,200 Cuban cigars before he signed the order.
Today, I am enjoying the Dominican Republic cigars. They are almost equal to the Cuban product. But if I had any Cuban cigars, and I would like to have a few, nobody would confiscate them from me. Nobody, or they will wish they never knew me. That I can promise.
Very truly yours,
P.S. This letter consumed a full bottle of dry white grenache. I would have retyped it but did not want to start another bottle of wine.
Editor's Response: Should I ever get to Phoenix, Irv, I would certainly look you up. I'd love to meet you--shoot the breeze and share a bottle of wine. In the meantime, I hope you got the box of special cigars I sent you last month. Guys like you are what make my job so great!
