Pipe smoking
#18
Quote:Furthermore, pipe smoking puts the traditional churchman in the eminently good company of his betters: C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, J.R.R. Tolkein, and other luminaries of the briar.

I note that CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien have put in a few good words for the pipe in their respective chronicles of Narnia and Middle-Earth.

I was relieved to see that Peter Jackson did not succumb to political correctness and exclude Frodo and Gandalf's pipe smoking from Fellowship of the Ring.

Now I'm waiting for the release of Prince Caspian, to see what they do about pipe-smoker Trumpkin, (good), and non-smoker Nikabrik (evil).

Actually I'm a non-smoker who dislikes the smell of cigarette smoke. But I'm getting alarmed by the fanaticism of the anti-smoking lobby.

Almost thou persuadest me to become a pipe-smoker. In the meantime I'll stick to smoking emoticonally.
