Looking again at news and commentary

Boston Herald

"The old woman, short, ... enveloped in a dark, long cape, making conversation with the teller was an exception. She wasn't in any hurry. She was smiling and counting out dollars and putting them in piles .... The teller ... smiled back and was cheerful and never looked up at the crowd and rolled her eyes, never once gave any indication that she didn't have all the time in the world for this friendly old lady.
