Voodoo economics

We bank at the local credit union and are pretty well insulated from the effects of the crashing economy by the simple expedient of (a) banking locally and (b) having spent our twenties and early thirties in graduate school, and therefore never having made more than about 17,000 a year until quite recently. Still, as I stood in line this morning to make a deposit, it was disconcerting to see a thick book, apparently bound in leather, with the gilded title "Spells" on the cover in thickly ornamental Victorian script, resting on the tellers' counter.

(It was actually a box of stealth Halloween candy. Probably just as well.)

If someone at your bank is a witch that can conjure real spells I would take that as a GOOD sign.
