maybe mr. catano has lots of dough to throw around, but 15$(or 50$) can go a 
longer way in my pocket than in someone else's.  personally, i think you are 
naive to give money to someone/thing if you are unsure about receiving 
someone/thing in return, and it is also foolish to ask people to send you 
money if you can't deliver to them a product.  with all due respect to mr. 
jon for his seemingly endless dedication, it is not unreasonable for 
people to get anxious in anticipation of the arrival their beloved t-shirts.

p.s. see the alliteration in my last line?

p.p.s. does anyone one know how long these russian brides are supposed to 
       take?  i've had a few bucks in limbo and it was only supposed to 
       be 4 to 6 weeks...
