Hiss! Boo! Somebody bounce that anti-smoking guy out of here!
At the very least, it's an interesting read. At most, having attended The Big Smoke - New York 2006 (see my CigarAdvisor.com article from last year), Mr. Kennedy's data merely confirms the obvious within the context of the circumstances. True, the cigar smoke does get a bit excessive inside the Marriott Marquis ballroom, but to a dedicated cigar smoker it's a walk in the rose garden.
Suffice it to say, I hope the Cigar Aficionado staff will be more diligent in weeding out such scallywags from now on. ;-)
