Tobacco and the Soul

We're back from a one-week vacation. While there (I'm not sure why...), I found myself remembering an article out of First Things magazine that I stumbled upon back in 1997: Tobacco and the Soul.

It's a very insightful article. As an occasional pipe and cigar smoker, I can relate to Foley's description of the weed and those who smoke it in those particular forms. Pipe smoke is, after all, one of the 15 manliest smells in the world.

You won't want to read it, though, if chewing tobacco is your particular vice.

For the pipe smoking humorist, you may also enjoy J.M. Barrie's (author of Peter Pan ) My Lady Nicotine.
