Marc, I always like it when the UPS man leaves stuff on the front porch when I'm not home because I figure they are taking the risk of it getting ripped off. when I get home I have my stuff instead of having to stay out of work or going to their depot. You're a lawyer, do you know any different? Say someone had stolen your $8000 lens and the package said signature required. They have no signature. Who makes good? Now you've got me curious.
