I wonder what happened to that stash of a thousand or so Cubans that Pierre Salinger was sent out to buy in the hours before his boss signed the trade embargo?Do you suppose they've descended to successive Presidents? Or did Jackie take them with her?
I think the H Upmanns were passed down, until Carter, ever the killjoy, destroyed them in some sort of religious self-righteousness.
That sounds vaguely familiar.I should have asked Pierre myself. Unfortunately, by the time I knew him well, he was not entirely reliable. And his confessions had more to do with swimming pools than cigars.
