This jogged a memory. I remember a time when you actually might see a policeman smoking a pipe in his cruiser--New York State Police, for one. It was kind of rare, but I have seen it. Seems like it was back in the 1800s, in spirit, but actually the 1970s or '80s. Even then, it seemed they might be violating some official protocol or something. Of course, there are those who have their own reasoned protocol, and those I salute.

I was stopped once leaving my then gf's place. She lived in a garage apartment in a super ritzy neighborhood on the water which had been having some trouble with car theft. I was stopped because I was driving a crappy car and the officer asked what I was smoking. I told him pipe tobacco (GLP Westminster) and might have started explaining the intricacies of the interplay between latakia, fine VA, and orientals. I think that let him know I'm not a pothead.
