Bank robberies used to be a news item. Now we all know that it is the banks that are robbing us.

I am with you on being protected from being a Viagra seller per my email (See comment from friend below). The ads that really get to me are those that abuse little kids — he gets a real pony and you get a pony doll, etc. What makes the advertisers think that such child abuse wins product support?

To get back with other things, we have a decent small bank — Banco Popular. In a poll last night I gave it generally 9 out of 10 point ratings. However, we all know that the big banks have brought us nothing but grief of various kinds including the sub prime mortgage disaster. I could name the names of some of the worst with which we have had occasional dealings — credit cards and such which we have canceled.

I do have one gripe, however, with my local Banco Popular branch. The head of BP will not repair an elevator necessary to access our safe deposit boxes, requiring us elders to use precarious stairs to get there and back. I told one of the officers that I would blog this in hopes of halting this discrimination against us elders. The bank is located at Broadway and 111th St. in Morningside Heights. I not only send this out as a blog, but widely to neighbors and others. wrote:
