(1) Pete Guither of Drug WarRant, apropos of yesterday's post about carding senior citizens, notes that the same practice goes on in many places, including in his own Normal, Illinois. One reason is that businesses have been fined after sting operations in which mature-looking youths managed to purchase their age-specific contraband. The business owners want to eliminate the possibility of incurring those fines again.
(2) Harry Hutton of Chase Me Ladies, I'm in the Cavalry, apropos of a recent post about Cuba's public smoking ban, reminds us that Mr. Castro (whom I take it is some big muckety-muck in Cuba) gave up smoking cigars in 1985, and later talked tobacco with Cigar Aficionado magazine.
