    I tried to post the "don't tread on me" illustration that accompanies this article but it's beyond my computer literacy. It's a good one.

    This is a nice article in the pipe tobacco vs. roll-your-own tobacco tax being debated right now. There's really no comparison and I admire the RYO people for exploiting a loophole. If the two get bundled together though, woe is us.

    I've written my congressmen and senators both in Mass. and in Louisiana. I talked to the staff at LJ Piretti about this and they were sanguine about the whole thing. Of course they've weathered a century's worth of changes in the pipe market.

    I was wondering what that was because it happens so frequently I knew it couldn't be people just posting bad links.

    You have an eye for detail Perique. I didn't notice that instead of a whole line of gobbledygook it shows up as "null.com." Maybe it's not worth reading if they don't want to share.
