Editor Smith: She Said, Cigars Or Me?

“Well, I know a special interest bill when I see it. But this is my special interest, so it is OK, of course. I smoked cigars regularly for more than 20 years (shortly after my first job in journalism where the city editor showed me how to bury them in a dinner expense reimbursement. I stopped more or less when I remarried five years ago and my bride said it was cigars or her. I still have a good cigar on occasion, but we have the 72-hour rule, meaning I have to be out of town for at least 72 hours after I smoke. But I still have a humidor with some good Cubans, including one from pre-Castro Cuba that will be smoked for some out-of-this-world occasion.”
