Sorry, thanks for the correction. Always did have a short attention span for American history. Well, European history also, to be accurate.

But you could pay for whole Costco pizzas at the outside window - they don't take credit cards. Or contributions to the homeless or the guy in the parking lot who just needs money for gas to get home to his family.
