Busy today: finishing work on two different manuscripts, tutoring, and trivia tonight. But I can't help following all the news coverage about the corruption trial of former U.S. Representative William Jefferson (D-LA) -- who, among other things, had $90,000 in cash in his freezer, divided among several different food containers.
While I'm working today, I invite you all to propose legitimate reasons for storing that much cash in your freezer, rather than in a federally-insured financial institution. Here's one: he had hired a contractor who insisted on being paid in cash, and the freezer was a place to store the money where it wouldn't get construction dust on it.
Anyone else got any ideas? I'd also like to mention that my own freezer has plenty of room, if any of you have cash storage needs.
