Important questions for important rabbis
The news is just full of Purim quality information nowadays!
Somebody actually felt the need to waste Rav Elyashiv's time, if the article is to be believed, and ask if one is allowed to send a bottle of Coca Cola as part of one's mishloach manot!
And whaddayaknow, he answered yes! What a revolutionary psak!
It is so wonderful we have gedolim available to answer such questions, rather than just the lowly neighborhood or shul rabbis who are clearly not important enough to be asked such important questions. The trivial questions must be saved for them...
