I talked to Andrew today. He's having to change over his bank accounts since Bank A got bought by Bank B--bunch of work to do all that.
He was happy that is latest request for $2M just got approved (that is, 2million, not 2thousand). He reminded me that just because he did all the good work to get 2M, doesn't mean he personally gets a penny more.
I reminded him that I knew ALL about that phenomenon. And then did him one better by reminding him of when I had to pay for childcare so I could work as an unpaid volunteer. :-)
