Oh, so not only will stores not ship anything to us, but graphic artists don't even want to include us in the USA map? Way to pour salt in that wound. The How Stressed Is Your State? article doesn't even include either Alaska or Hawaii on the list, let alone the graphic. It literally stops at 48! Are we in a time warp, is this 1959?
And let me tell you one thing, 85% of online retailers. You better get your vocab straight. When your website says that you don't ship to Alaska because you only ship to the continental states - guess what? Alaska IS one of the continental states. It is not contiguous, which is the word you are looking for. Jackasses.
