We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I agree about the Cubans. Down here in Tampa there are pretty well available, still at stupid prices, but I tell people I'll smoke one when Elian(the kid Reno gave back to Castro) is free.
by the way local smoke shop has a 1500 sq ft humidor and does internet, good prices especially to the anti-tobacco states, tampahumidor.com just had a grand opening and sends cigars to our troops overseas. Mike's a good guy check him out.
No good cigars types are really comparable because they are so different in detail and flavor. But I doubt that anybody, except perhaps for the most discriminating and hyper-sensitive of palates, could tell a Cuban from a Dominican anyway.
It's all hype. The embargo makes the Cubans more desirable.
