I believe it was actually Neil Armstrong that said that. He was a bit of a rebel. John Glenn was a company man.

You're right, that was Neil. A frequent quip. He had the typical low-key, dry sense of humor characteristic of test pilots. He was a poker buddy of my father's when he was training at NASA/Edwards AFB.

Do you know what diameter white styrene rod you'll need to model the hundreds, if not thousands of cigarette butts that will be scattered around the trash can?  And are you planning to have decals made of the tan filter tips one would find on Winstons, as opposed to the all white Salems?
You're modeling North Carolina, remember.

Too funny.  Don't forget Camel!  No matter what your opinion on smoking, I can confirm that, particularly on a summer day, the aroma of tobacco rolling through Winston-Salem from the R.J. Reynolds' factory smelled pretty damn good.

I went to the University of Richmond, so I think of Philip Morris in Richmond, Virginia when I think of Marlboro.  It’s funny, back when I was in college, you could go down to the bars in Shockoe Slip, and cigarette girls would come around and trade you Philip Morris cigarettes for other brands.  In other words, they’d take your opened and almost empty pack of Camels and give you a new pack of Marlboros.

South Carolina cuts tobacco and sends it to North Carolina and Virginia, where they know what to do with it. 

Sort of like barbecue.  South Carolina should just send their hogs to North Carolina and stop wasting time slathering them with mustard!  Blecch!

My parents are Duke grads, and they always said that you could smoke your way through college without buying a pack.  Once you graduated, however...

yes...the Duke Endowment paid for the majority of my grad school. Always had mixed feelings about that knowing where $ was invested and coming from.
