Congratulations, Ray, on a halfway civil post. I knew you had it in you. Somewhere.

Ooooookaaaayyyy......... Do I get a gold star now?

Care to speak to the content of the post? Or is deportment all that matters.

'cause to my mind, seeing as this is an Investing board and all, the issues of primary importance here are those that result in more zeros on your net worth statement.

Which brings to mind an issue I had with my local bank's branch. Would you believe that if you try to deposit a check that's more than $8000 they have to call the head office and get permission from a VP before they'll accept the deposit?

I said, in an incredulous voice, "Are you kidding me? I'm just DEPOSITING money not withdrawing money. You mean that you have to get permission to TAKE money? And it's a CHECK, not bundles of $20 bills."
