Easy come, easy go

Wal-Mart announced today that it would waive its customary $3 fee to cash the government's coming "economic stimulus" checks -- even load the money on a Wal-Mart spending card for free.

I guess I shouldn't be cynical about this. It's the creeping geezerdom. I am old enough to remember when a government check could be negotiated just about anywhere for free. I also remember passbook savings accounts, counter checks and one miraculous small grocery in Lexington, Va., where I could charge money and pay it back at the end of the month, no carrying charge. (In return, the store got my not inconsiderable beer and Slim Jim business.)
