This final note on the way out, which comes as Treasury Secretary-designate Jack Lew started his round of get-to-know-you meetings on Capitol Hill today.

The Jewish Daily Forward newspaper recounts that Lew was once asked to serve as the treasurer at his local synagogue. Turned it down with a smile, the story goes, saying synagogue finances would be harder to manage than the federal budget.
