Ten years ago: Pfizer agreed to pay a record $2.3 billion settlement for illegal drug promotion. A Taliban suicide bomber attacked officials leaving a mosque in Afghanistan, killing the country's deputy intelligence chief and 23 others. Gunmen killed 17 people at a drug rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez (SEE'-yoo-dahd wahr-EHZ'), Mexico. A magnitude-7.0 earthquake rocked Indonesia, killing dozens of people.


Five years ago: Islamic State group extremists released a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff, and warned President Barack Obama against further U.S. airstrikes on the group. Apple said that hackers had obtained nude photos of actress Jennifer Lawrence and other female celebrities by pilfering images from individual accounts rather than through a broader attack on the company's services.


One year ago: Sen. John McCain was laid to rest on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy, after a horse-drawn caisson carrying the senator's casket led a procession of mourners from the academy's chapel to its cemetery. A huge fire engulfed Brazil's 200-year-old National Museum in Rio de Janeiro, as firefighters and museum workers raced to save historical relics.

Sam Leccia White Ready for
I'd be surprised that you would like that.
I bought a couple of sampler boxes several years ago at a bargain basement deal  and Actually I think they are pretty good mild Morning Smokes.  Not all that fond of the Sam Leccia Black Cigars but they are smokable.

Edit:  the draw and burn on this cigar are outstanding, very nice construction
I'm probably confusing it with the black. One of those was very perfumey.
Black had the pipe tobacco thing happening...

Yeah, but I'm screwed tomorrow if I don't.  Didn't see the Clemson game but nice win to start the season.  TX A&M may give you more trouble.

Afternoon, Rick.  I've been on vaca so perhaps not up to date on the strike situation. If you're going to work then I figure that didn't happen. Hope you guys got some satisfaction.

So are you going to accept the offer or going on strike?

Strike vote passed and the board countered with a 3 year and 2 percent each year. I know there is more on the table but there are to many near retirement to push the board for more. Contract vote is Wednesday
