Hi Sally,

Good one. To quote the koan-spouting, grunge-playing, wooden-acting =
Keanu Reeves: "Whoa." I'm looking into buying a whirlpool bath =
(inexpensive model, but a step up from Eddie Murphy's memorable =
definition of a poor man's jacuzzi), and some of those heavy suckers are =
about $75 to ship; unless those cassette cases are made out of solid =
gold or this guy's got Carnegie Hall-level insured pianist's hands, I =
can't even begin to fathom the shipping and handling price of $840!

Best,
