The Tesla Rental Experience

No, this is not the name of Robert’s new progressive rock band. He rented a Tesla 3 at the Orlando airport and realized he may be too old of a dog to learn how to drive this new trick. He also may not have the money for the insurance if he ever wanted to own one.

Free Coverage for Wealthy Depositors

Robert wonders why deposits for bank account holders in excess of $250,000 are insured despite exceeding the explicit limits of coverage and despite no premiums having been paid on those excess deposits. Are those depositors more important to the economy than the rest of us? Maybe “taxpayers” won’t pay for the Silicon Valley Bank bailout, but everyone who uses the banking system will. Is there a difference?
