It’s bad enough that air passengers in the US are embarrassed, harassed, violated and otherwise abused physically and emotionally by a security apparatus gone bizzerk, but things have clearly gone TOO far now. This is an attack on the dignity and civility of everyday life! Tight screening and security regulations for inbound cargo into the US has had the dastardly effect of uncovering what has been – until now that is – a prolific business of smuggling contraband Cuban cigars into the the US. Over 100,000 cigars were reportedly confiscated in just a two week period at Chicago-O’Hare Airport, where usually customs officials find only 2,000 in the same time period. And just why are they banned…are they a devious plot to overthrow the capitalist bastion of the free world? Maybe as they burn, their smoke induces warm, fuzzy socialist sentiments making us all want to grow outragious beards and wear khaki. On the otherhand, there could be some research they’re hold back from the public, that smoking those big fat stogies makes you want to wear funky glasses, put flowers in your hair and wear outrageously garish clothes! You go girl!
