Banks, hospitals & James Comey

by Philip F. Jacobus , President
Have you ever noticed that for many years, banks tended to be huge majestic buildings? My wife told me that before the FDIC was created, banks needed to have impressive buildings so that depositors were comfortable investing their money. Banks needed to be imposing looking buildings so you wouldn't worry about robberies.

Thanks to FDIC, depositor's money is insured and banks have gone to smaller, less imposing facilities.

To some extent, I predict the same trend will occur with hospitals. We all know that hospitals have historically been imposing grand buildings but now that we've succeeded in making people live longer and there are more people alive, maybe you'll see more surgery centers and out patient care in strip malls and shopping centers.

With the advent of electronic medicine, people may receive treatment and diagnosis at home.

What does James Comey have to do with all this, you ask?

I can't help but feel that if you are going to fire someone who's important, you should do it in person or at least by telephone. Giving a letter to a receptionist doesn't seem presidential to me.

Those are the things I've been thinking about today.
