The CA Magazine has taken a downturn over the past several years as has their forum. Hope this hold up. Thanks for posting this address Steve.

...I sadly believe this magazine has almost lost all of its ‘luster’ (now...OK are best), from its original charter in the Autumn of 92 (I still have this magazine [among other CA's mags). :001_unsur

I fondly remember how CA started as a lifestyle magazine with articles of cigars, wine, spirits, travel, gambling, antiques, vehicles, (I thought for the 'average Joe'...not the so well-to-do w/ money to burn), and interesting interviews with leading personalities in the cigar world and insights, plus feature articles relating to the cigar making industry & noted for its opposition to the Cuban embargo. :thumbsup:

Shoulder Shrug.jpg Its hard to put into words, but CA seemed to 'morph' to attract a different class of demographic reader (i.e., upward mobile individuals), the articles on sundry's, hotels, food etc...are priced 'wayyyy out of my league'...I think you get my drift.

I agree Count. About 2 years ago I counted how many pages were dedicated to information on cigars in an issue. It was stunning how little of the magazine had cigar issue articles. It's worse now.
