You Can't Ship That
The story on "Windfall profits" (Keeping Score, Jan. 31) was pretty appalling. It extols a 49-year-old Kansas housewife shipping tumbleweed all over the world because of the Internet. Did you ever think of what an environmental disaster that is likely to be? Do you recognize that it is illegal, in most cases, to ship plants and animals to other countries or even other states? Linda Katz should be heavily fined for shipping tumbleweed around the world and forced to stop the practice. I hope your article hasn't encouraged more "Web entrepreneurs" to try similarly dangerous things.
