    Mr. Callahan made a great decision. All that he needed to do was to scribble a note, and present it to the teller. That’s an investment well below one cent.
    Now, let’s see his returns and dividends: for the next seven years, he will be housed for free, fed for free, and get absolutely free medical care, despite the sharply rising costs for all of the above.
    He will also have access to free television, law library, gym, and pastoral care, without paying any membership costs for those.

    The one thing that he might miss is the ability to take a walk to anywhere that he could desire, without a guard.
    Like to a bank, for example. He isn’t worried, however. There is enough in the account to fully pay for the next seven years of his existence.
    It’s too bad that others are the ones who must fund it.
