  • Great show!
    As for Michigan State, “Go Blow,” I mean “Go Blue.” They should worry more that the crime rate on campus is significantly higher than the national average for colleges, particularly, instances of assaults and rape.
    By the way, I’m glad it was clarified that “Grandma Slapping” was not really to be encouraged.
    Thanks, Dino

  • Nice interview! Great questions and answers too.
    the 2yrs I’ve been smoking a pipe, I’ve come to admire those with exquisite stems both in comfort and appearance.
    I could not understand the name of the pipe maker that Joe mentioned as being one he admires…I got ‘trevor toomey’? About 40 min. in.
    Everybody GROK!

  • Finally got to the show this week and it really delivered. The trip report really delivered in the show. Shame it isn’t open to the public.
    The interview with Joe Hinkle was delightful. I can remember him at a show in Columbus two years ago. He didn’t sell anything until the last minute when I bought one and a guy on the deck bought one. He was brand new and no one had heard of him. The KC Club bought their club pipe from him in 2015.
    What can you say about the rant? Their are people who will curry the favor of the “do gooders” by outlawing smoking and ignoring all the other things that are really harmful. They are saying those are okay if you do them in moderation. Yet they will strike down a freedom that is truly done in moderation. I can’t wait for the first ordnance that won’t let you smoke in your house if someone is visiting you.

  • I think what bothered me most about the MSU decision is the fact that so many of us first discovered pipes while in college. Not that students can’t still do that. But what is the likelihood when all pipe smoking would have to happen off-campus — and there are precious few places to do that, especially if you’re wanting to study or write a paper while you’re puffing away? And this policy is bound to hurt the business of the one pipe/cigar business in East Lansing, which is just across the street from campus.

  • Dino: Just to clarifyy, “Go Blue” refers to the University of Michigan, not Michigan State. MSU is the Spartans, whose colors are green and white. 🙂
