Subject: Popcorn

The vendor I mentioned earlier that used Popcorn for packing matter, was
an audiovisual supplier!  It was WHATMAN LABSALES from Hillsboro, OR.

They shipped a video to us.  It had been wrapped in plastic first, to
prevent the popcorn fluff and dribble from getting into the video inner
workings, but I found using popcorn with audiovisuals even more risky
then for books and print materials.

They had prepared a message in rhyme on the outside explaining that this
item had been packed in popcorn as a reflection of their concern for the
ecology.  Too bad it was all tossed before I got to it. We may hear more
from then soon.
