Yesterday, we dropped into the Bethesda office of EagleBank CEO Ron Paul, center, whom we snapped here with general counsel Larry Bensignor and president Tom Murphy. You may know that Ron, who started the bank 16 years ago, has also been, both before and since, a substantial real estate developer. But did you know he is also...

...a check collector? Nah, we don't mean for ordinary processing. Ron is a remarkable collector of checks written by the most famous names of our time. Here is one from that guy Tom Hanks played in Saving Mr. Banks...

...and one from Lisa Marie's dad...

...and one signed by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It's pretty cool being a banker.
