Default One of Life's Imponderable Mysteries...

.... is why the baqallas all stock soft-pack Marlboro lights, yet only ever sell the hardpacks.

Actually, why do they even make soft-packs? I admit, there is something retro cool about them - puts me in mind of James Dean in Rebel without a clue, or a vietnam GI with a softpack (but that's marlboro red) stuffed inside the band of the tin hat....

but where is the logic?
