Credit Card Birthday

Fifty years ago this month almost every home in Fresno, CA, received in the mail the plastic fantastic BankAmericard. What came to be known as the "Fresno Drop" is now something else to blame on the U.S. Postal Service. You're addicted. Admit it. Is there a 12-step program for this?

We will never be a cashless society, though some are loath to admit it. I just wish we'd get rid of the penny.
