Packy revisited (5) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 8 Jun 1996 09:59:47 -0700 From: David Goldstein-Shirley 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. David Goldstein-Shirley University of California, Irvine
