I could not disagree with this article more. Look where taking the high road has gotten tobacco users in the past. Higher and higher taxes, fewer and fewer places to enjoy smoking, and the - as you put it - "dealing with people who find offense with just the sight of an unlit cigar". The tobacco industry has forever been tarnished by mistruths and a vehement opposition.

Does anyone remember what Liberty is? Anti-tobacco groups have done a masterful job of picking away at the industy instead of going after large chunks. We'd be wise to adopt the NRA's philosphy of not giving in to any type of opposition to our freedom. I, personally, can't think of a logical reason why anyone would need a bullet that can pierce four rhinos and a kevlar brick. But, the NRA's take is that if they can take that away from them then they can take anything away.

I hope that I conduct myself, when smoking, as I do in the rest of my life; with respect to others. However, I must demand respect in return. I simply will not tolerate someone trying to tell me I can't smoke in my car or house. This is my life, your life is yours, none of this will matter to us as individuals in a hundred years. But, it does set a very dangerous precedent for our future generations. I'm already hearing of soda pop taxes, restaurant codes for cooking oils, HOT DOG WARNING LABELS - for God's sake!

This is bigger than cigars and being "kind" to others.

The nature and lifestyle of cigar smoking is not/nor has it ever been one of offensive or criminal behavior. I am a father of four and I will NOT let someone take away my personal rights (on my property or in my car). We - cigar smokers - must be respectful but realize that if we are WEAK in our fortitude about this issue we will continue to let articles like this be written in a PRO CIGAR electronic media publication.
