Subject: Re: Packy revisited

Although I was subscribed to this list by someone else and have been

trying unsuccessfully for some time to be unsubscribed (if the listowner

is reading, would you please unsubscribe me?), I do have a response

regarding the term "packy" for a liquor store.

Is it possible that it refers to the ownership of many liquor stores by

Pakistanis? I wouldn't be surprised if it is a British slang term.
