As the Veterans Re-Discover the Modern Cigar Market

By Editors & Staff

I’m not trying to brag, but as the Publisher & Editor in Chief of Cigar Chronicles, I definitely think I have one of the coolest jobs in the world . I mean it is pretty cool to take a time-honored, luxury, leisurely past-time, like cigar smoking—and make it your job. The rest of the guys here have pretty cool jobs too, and it was interesting listening to a conversation between Associate Editor, Gregory L. Pease and two of our professional cigar reviewers and columnists; Tad Gage and Russ Ouellette recently. All three guys have been in and around the business for the last 30-years. However, Greg and Tad had been sticking to their tried and true smokes for the past few years in their roles as consumer smokers. Since they signed on to work for Cigar Chronicles they have been experiencing a plethora of brand new, and somewhat new cigars, but all new cigars to them. These recent cigar happenings turned into an interesting conversation from these veteran aficionados.

Let’s eavesdrop on the conversation heard ’round the water cooler at the Cigar Chronicles virtual offices –

We had a lot of compliments on the last shoot with Melanie in her red stockings, but one fan said she had too many clothes on, so here she is with as little clothing as we can do. Also, did you ever notice that we are the ONLY magazine where the girls actually SMOKE THE CIGARS FOR REAL?

This is really something.

Tobacco Prevention Funding Declines by 36%

What’s colossally obnoxious and idiotic about this is that there have been laws in place for decades banning the sale of tobacco products to minors. The antis are so dependent upon crying about how they are "saving the children" to try to give themselves some semblance of legitimacy, that they become blind to the fact that minors already can’t buy the stuff.

Organizations like the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids shouldn’t even exist. I’m wondering if in this day and age with all the militant brainwashing if you could even find a minor smoking a cigarette anyway.

And speaking of cigarettes – here’s another HUGE problem that’s been going on for ages.

In the antis minds – Tobacco = Cigarettes.

I seriously, truly believe, and I even bet that it could be proven (if we were allowed to do so) that people like Matthew Myers, President of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has major psychological problems that drive his misplaced, ignorant activism.

The annual report, titled "A Broken Promise to Our Children: The 1998 State Tobacco Settlement 13 Years Later," …

Again, utterly ridiculous just with the title. Save the children! Save the children!

How about we enforce the current law against "children" being able to buy or use tobacco products?

Oh, I get it.

It’s not really about saving the children.

Here’s what it’s really about – 3 things –

1. Money
2. Fascism
3. Tobacco Prohibition

Below is an interesting update on what’s going on with the FDA trying to take over control of premium cigars.

What scares me is –

1. How militantly fascist the antis are.
2. How ignorant to reality – (They insist that "youth" are corrupted by cigars.)
3. They want to ban internet sales of ALL tobacco products.

If that happens, I’m out of business and so are a lot of other businesses that are much bigger than mine, but still small businesses employing about 85,000 people that will all be out of work.

We like our Cigar Babes to feel comfortable when they’re hanging around the Cigar Chronicles studios. Ira thought it would be a nice way to relax wearing lingerie while smoking her cigar, and we encourage that.
