Letters to the Editor
I find it laughable that Hal Stevens thinks so little of
brick-and-mortar retailers that he’d call us stooges for the state
government and “inefficient” presumably because we chose to base our
business in the community (Letters, Hal Stevens, “Mucking up marketplace
fairness,” Aug. 7, Gazette).
I was insulted for myself and the
other retailers who are advocating for the Marketplace Fairness Act
(MFA) until I found out that Mr. Stevens is an eBay retailer. eBay is
based around this loophole, and their lobbyists are paying through the
nose to keep this loophole alive.
