Yeah, but when they were selling them that cheap it was the first time
George got them shipped; now they do a bit more shipping business, so it's
probably a significant amount of work to package them all & send them.
Also, if you buy 5 or more the price drops down below $5, so it's not that
bad. (and hey, if you happen to be driving through Berkeley on your
vacation, you can buy save the shipping charge altogether!) But I agree
with Shaji, it's about time we started getting local stores to carry them.
