One day before the Florida primary the polls show Mitt Romney pulling ahead of Newt Gingrich thanks in part to a $16 million ad blitz across the state by Romney. So has Mitt sealed the deal? Can Gingrich pull out another upset? Romney may walk away with the nomination if he could pull out the Florida victory. We will find out what the field looks like this morning.

Citizen's Bank is charging fees every month on depositing more than $1000 CASH over every $5000 in business accounts. I did call earlier but failed to mention this detail...

About being screwed by Banks. I have used so many banks and have been charged more overage fees than I could count. Now I use a credit union and have never been charged once. I will be bank free till I am dead.

Regarding the attack ads, a few years ago while living in Erie, PA, Congressman Phil English was being challenged by Kathy Dahlkemper. I had not been paying much attention to the news at the time. I might not have even been planning to vote. I first became aware of Dahlkemper when I saw an ad narrated in a sinister voice with shots of unhappy people trudging through the snow shown on the screen. It talked about the "horrible" things she wanted to do. The funny thing was, I liked everything she wanted to do! The campaign to elect Phil English effectively solicited my vote.... for the opposition.

I think asking listeners to tell you what are the nastiest attack ads is disgusting. WNYC now sounds like some afternoon TV show where people pull each others hair out.
