Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Welcome New Probie: Casimir Pulaski

It is completely obvious that there is a significant number of our readers who are members of the Society of Humorless Catholics. In order to further irritate this crowd and provide much entertainment and thoughtful insights for the rest of us, we have decided to invite Mr. Casimir Pulaski as a probationary contributor to Fumare.

The next two months will be rigorous ones for Mr. Pulaski, as we evaluate his posting skills. We look for intellectual ability, varied interests, and evidence of solid Catholic orthodoxy. Likewise, his tastes in tobacco will be strictly scrutinized as the fundamental right to smoke is indeed a hallmark here. Finally, he will be forced to wear the trademark probie "pledge-cap" (pictured left) every time he posts for the next two months. At the end of his probationary period, the members of Fumare--meeting in secret session--will determine his status as a permanent member. Welcome Cas (at least for now)!
