I live in Canada (near the border), I have P.O. Box on the U.S. side and I have a bank account in a U.S. bank. I had no trouble opening it, and I use it to pay for many purchases I make from the U.S. (I can often get much better travel deals through sites like Priceline when I use a credit card with a U.S. billing address.)

So, I don't know what difficulty you're alluding to.

Interesting statement considering that U.S. banks don't allow accounts to be set up with PO Box addresses.

It doesn't need to be. It's still a history lesson. Not many young people would know that in the past you'd actually call a library to ask them questions. Heck, I'm 30 and I would have never considered calling them!

Of course only before the 70s did they actually answer the phone. Then came the tape players that just played a recording of the library hours.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
