    A few weeks back everyone had it but it's worth a try, I guess.

    Problem is, they are not selling any to private distributors. Only government agencies can get it.

    Read the front page of the Free Press Local section this morning,
    "Salt Shortage", you'll read about all the communities that are starving for salt. Detroit Mining is pumping it out as fast as they can, little guys like us are last on their list according to the paper.
