It’s All Smoke and Whiskey

There’s just something about sitting on a porch, cradling a whiskey in one hand and a cigar in the other that has the ability to bring about great conversations. Whether that discussion leads to current events in foreign policy, or discerning the merits of certain Nicholas Cage movies, the style of conversation lends itself to the idea that taking yourself too seriously is overrated, but knowing what’s going on in the World is a necessity. It’s All Smoke and Whiskey seeks to address the pressing, and not so pressing, issues of our time in a manner best suited for the back porch, where all of the World’s problems are solved over an ash tray and a beat up tumbler.

Conor Higgins has a B.A. from Catholic University in DC in American History, with a concentration on guerrilla warfare on American soil. He has an M.A. in US History from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, with a concentration on Cold War insurgency. He believes that all news and all information should be taken with a grain of salt, and implores people everywhere to seek news stories everywhere. 

Higgins is also a fervent believer in the traditional role of media, in terms of acting as a balanced check on government policies and individuals regardless of party affiliation. But in the end, he believes that no matter how heated an issue is, there is nothing that can't be discussed over a smoke and some whiskey.
