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.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
