Crap. The very moment I stop pouring over the Nova Scotia papers, (found some coupons for toilet paper that I have to use by next week or they expire), this kind of earth shattering news happens.

HalfAsstic: Send me your coupons. I'll save FOR you!
And you're in favour of this decision. Only because big whisky loses when they try to bully little whisky. Nah, nah nah, boo, boo....

richgold: I will, too. I should go out and get some. Or at least go find free samples somewhere. I can't drop $85 on a box of something I haven't even heard reviews (from my peers) on!
