Not often I'm envious of New Jersey

Ruth Lafler | Nov 29, 200104:13 PM     20

I've been reading the international foods warehouse thread on the TriState board.

It seems there are *three* of these wonders in New Jersey!

Is it possible there is such a thing in Northern California and I've never heard of it, or am I doomed to suffer international food warehouse envy?

Reminds me of my favorite lawyer joke (I used to work for a large law firm that printed lawyer jokes in the firm newsletter):

Question: Why does California have the most lawyers and New Jersey have the most toxic waste dumps?

Answer: Because New Jersey got first choice.

So was there some cosmic lottery that gave New Jersey three international food warehouses in exchange for all our bounty?
