Ten years ago: Faisal Shahzad (FY’-sul shah-ZAHD’), the Pakistani immigrant who’d tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square, accepted a life sentence from a federal judge in New York with a smirk and warned that Americans could expect more bloodshed at the hands of Muslims. President Barack Obama convened the first-ever White House summit on community colleges, calling them the “unsung heroes of America’s education system.”


Five years ago: The United States, Japan and 10 other nations in Asia and the Americas reached agreement on the landmark Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The Coast Guard concluded that El Faro, a container ship that went missing during Hurricane Joaquin off the Bahamas, had sunk. Irish-born William Campbell, Satoshi Omura and of Japan and Tu Youyou of China won the Nobel Prize in medicine for discoveries that helped doctors fight malaria and infections caused by roundworm parasites.


One year ago: A Taliban official said a delegation from the group had met with a U.S. envoy in the Pakistani capital; it was the first such encounter since President Donald Trump announced a month earlier that a peace deal to end Afghanistan’s 18-year war was dead. Iraqi protesters pressed on with anti-government rallies in the capital and across several provinces for a fifth day, setting government offices on fire; security agencies fatally shot 19 protesters and wounded more than three dozen.

@TravelinMan - have you tried the Juarez OBS by CH? They have 5-packs at the monster today and it caught my eye.
I'm still working through a box of them from their initial release. Decent smoke but for San Andreas Maduros I would rather reach for a La Historias, San Lotano Maduro etc.

I've had the Willie Lee vitola.  Nice smoke.  Different blender and tabacalara I believe.  Don't know if EPC is to busy making everybody elses cigars or the just wanted to diversify.  With that, a different flavor profile.  Also seems to be a more economical line from the rest of their offerings.  Can't say anything stood out about it.

I was primarily referring to the Brownies.  Bills looking good and gaining confidence.

Today’s Birthdays:
 
Singer-musician Steve Miller is 77.

Cigarbanter.com used to have its very own Steve Miller (can't remember his moniker to save my life) but like many BotL, he has disappeared.
