Yes, We Have No Pipe Tobacco

When I go out of town by car, I make it a point to see if gas stations along the interstates and other highways carry pipe tobacco. Sadly, in the last¬†few years I have yet to find one that does. They have lots of cigarettes, cheap cigars, dip, and chewing tobacco — but no pipe tobacco whatsoever. (At one station, the clerk tried to convince me that Red Man is pipe¬†tobacco.)

It makes me kind of sad because it suggests that no one is asking for it. At least I did.
