Comment: Re:But Amazon only ships it to 3 states (Score 1) 118 118

I live in RI, where the law is so vaguely written that most online liquor sellers won't ship there, but I managed to find a couple that will...my wine shipments from wtso.com are always sent FedEx, and I always have to sign for them.

I wonder what this will mean for things like Li-poly batteries used in R/C vehicles, etc that are often airmailed from China. Now they will have to go by boat?

Wish I had mod points. Most people have no idea that both people co-existed in relative harmony for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Not only that, there's some indication the "Palestinians" have converted their faith twice...once to Christianity during the Byzantine era, and then eventually to Muslim when the Ottomans took over...
