Remembering Tom Dunn

As some of you may have heard, Mick and I have entered the publishing business with The Snuff Taker's Ephemeris; a bi-monthly periodical devoted to all things snus and snuff. I wanted to share with SnusCENTRAL one of the many roads that lead me to want to do a book on tobacco.  It would be a crime to omit the name of Tom Dunn from the story. This essay is dedicated to the memory of Tom Dunn, 1938-2005.

Most people remember Tom as the founder and publisher of The Pipe Smoker's Ephemeris, which he put out regularly from 1965 until his death of stomach cancer in 2005. TPSE, as it was more commonly known by its readers, was the single best tobacco-related periodical ever concocted. Tom never made much off of his magazine (in fact, he probably didn't even break even), so TPSE was a true labor of love in every sense of the word.

Scary Warning Labels!  Those really work, don't they?

Regulation of Tobacco: Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act

There have been many questions and much confusion concerning the Kennedy/Waxman legislation since it became law on June 22, 2009.  What does FDA regulation of tobacco really mean?  Why aren't cigars or pipe tobacco treated the same way under the law as Cigarettes, RYO (roll your own), and Smokeless Tobacco or all kinds?  When does all this go into effect?  How does it affect me as a tobacco manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or consumer?
