This is a long lost column. I found it one Saturday afternoon a few years ago. I had a roaring fire going in my library….
I like my banker, Scotty. We are close in age, entering our supposed “prime earning years,” raising young children and living the Long Island dream. He’s Patchogue, I’m Glen Cove. We forgive each other this.
The reason I enjoy talking to Scotty is that I appreciate his take on things. He calls it like it is. Prior to the complete collapse of the banking system last year, he and I were having lunch and lamenting the state of the local economy. While the entire country had not yet gone to hell he pointed out that out of nowhere his morning egg-and-cheese sandwich and cup of coffee were closing in on $10.
