Dear Marvin:

I applaud your efforts for cigar smokers. I have been one for over 50 years. Before Castro, I used to smoke H. Upmann 1s and 2s. How fine they were, and modestly priced.

I miss going out for dinner the way I used to, unable to light up a cigar in restaurants now.

We live in a landmark building and the walls and floors are very thick. The lady below us has tried to stop me from smoking cigars in my own apartment. She complained to the building owner, the superintendent, and the elevator man that she could smell my cigar. Did you ever hear anything like this? Real chutzpah!

Good luck, and I wish you the best for your magazine.

Dear Marvin:

After reading the latest edition of Cigar Aficionado,I realized that our article about Laurence Fishburne left out an acting credit. He was in the 1986 CBS TV Show
"Pee-wee's Playhouse" as Cowboy Curtis.
I do enjoy reading your magazine cover to cover and will be a life long reader. Thanks

I have been a subscriber for at least 15 years. love the articles and especially the ratings. Enjoy the pictures also. I just wish they would print only pictures with the cigars actually lit. was no big deal for awhile but in the last year,I have seen people holding unlit cigars the wrong way!! the wedding pictures are really prone to this. just doesn't seem to be right-my opinion.
