No, I don't know how CR works.  I just tossed that out as wishful thinking,
because I am not a serious CRer, but I am a boney sort.  Ensel, you are
newish around here, so I should comment that many of my posts are meant as
much to entertain as to actually inform.  Only in rocket science should you
invest a modicum of consideration to my stuff.  {8^D  Perhaps you already
realized this after the nudibranch post?*


*Actually I still think that whole naked teller notion is a wicked cool
idea.  You could offer the lowest interest rates in town while charging the
highest, you wouldn't need to even invest in an ATM because no one would use
it anyway, your branch would have the longest lines but paradoxically the
least complaints about it, etc.
