    Hmmm, why did they just dump the tea into Boston harbor and not the rum? And why not the molasses as well. After all there was a tax on them also.

    I guess they liked rum and molasses. Rum is made from molasses.

    A parallel might be people protesting "big box" stores.

    By the way, can anyone explain "big box?" Because they look like rectangular solids?
