Jim Shields asked for the phone # of APHIS at JFK: for Jim and anyone else 
who wants it, it's 718-553-1732.

But I have to use this opportunity to trash APHIS a little bit...I called 
this number fairly recently to inquire after a slow-moving package of my 
own.  The woman who answered promised to "check the logbooks"  -apparently 
everything is physically logged in and out in ledgers or similar, not in a 
database (she confirmed this - it isn't my interpretation).  She did so, and 
called back with the information that the package had never been received by 
APHIS.  Two days later it arrived here, and yes, it had been inspected and 
cleared at JFK.  Sigh.
