This final note today, with more news about Cyprus and the bailout. From the Times of London website this morning, this item:

The Royal Air Force has loaded up a plane with a million euros of cold hard cash — that’s one and a quarter million U.S. dollars — and flown it to Cyprus, so that the 3,000 British military stationed on the island nation can get loans when their ATM and debit cards stop working.
