Speaking of penalty for early withdrawals... Teaching at GW this year, I am next to the World Bank up here in chilly DC. Let me tell you, that bank is not user-friendly. Barricades where the parking should be. No ATMs or tellers I could find. Lots of security guards everywhere, sure, but none would tell me where the ATM or tellers were. What gives?
I'm guessing no toaster to open a new account either. Maybe that's why it seems to be picketed every other week. No problem controlling unruly protesters, though. Next to the bank is the Impossible Mission Force building with even more security. [Alan Childress]
