Contra Harry Jaffa, Michael Foley makes the case for smoking and its relation to the soul in this article from ’First Things’. In case you didn’t know, cigarette smoking is to the passionate part of the soul, as cigar smoking is to the thymotic part, and pipe smoking is to the rational part of the soul.
No doubt Schramm will be off to the local tabacconist for a pipe soon.
Foley is a student of that Divine Comic, Ernest Fortin. A fun read.
