RE: Medium format digital

No problem about going off the deep end - but the big rich bad guys do tend
to get away with actions that would get us mere mortals locked up with the
key thrown away.

What banks are offering that rate - I need a home for my just returned Indy
Mac cd - trying to retire - and its really tough :(

Here, in my home town, 4.15% right now for a 7 month . . . and safe.
But, Mike, I know what you mean. I do know that our banks, locally,
are substantial and not caught up with "the mortgage scandals", which  
me of the Savings & Loan scandals of the 80's & 90's. They were another
de-regulated piece of work foisted upon the public and paid for by us  
to create
multi-scrillionaires. One of AZ (where guess who is from) was Hurwitz  
took over our local perfectly fine and good redwood lumber mill and  
all but
ruined the forests and lives. It's greed . . . but, gosh folks, I  
didn't mean to go
off the deep end but, whew, I am livid these days.
