    I found this sign in a Museum in Pecos Texas. While it no longer hangs in local banks, at one time not so long ago it did.

    Yea I kind of centered on that part myself. It costs more to jail them than to bury them.

    "The reward does not apply to night attacks on Texas Banks."

    What a great sign. Wonder how it'd go over today?

    Oh My..... It would make customers think you were robbed all the time and their money would be at risk.

    They may leave your business and go to one of the other 12 banks a stones throw from each other.

    Anyone ever notice how many banks are popping up right down the street from each other? I swear. They make money charging you to get your money back after they have made money on the interest.

    I like like the good 'ol days.... One town.. one bank.

    Tell your manager to purchase the one that was found.

    It really shows you how times havechanged.

    Case in point...

    Then: You steal a man's ride.. his horse.. you were hung!!

    Now: You steal a man's ride.. his very expensive car... you get a slap on the hand.

    What happened?????


    The punishment for taking another's property is looked upon now as so minor. A car now-a-days is worth so much more than a horse.

    I think he may have spent a lot of time "alone" with his horse.
