periodic table

signs of the times?

On entering South Station on my commute this morning, I was confronted with a large gaggle of people between me and the coffee counter. Probably forty or so people, clustered amorphously around the (closed) entrance of the Sovereign Bank.

My first thought: have the bank runs started?

I sincerely doubt that, since a) they weren't in line, and b) no, the bank runs haven't actually started. But sheesh.
