Credit Unions seem to be weird critters ... I recently asked mine to raise
the credit limit on my credit card to something more useful than $1,500 as
their interest rate is one of the lowest I've found.  They said no ... not
because I'm a bad credit risk (quite the opposite, in fact) but because it
was their policy not to issue cards with higher credit limits to limit the
losses they might suffer.  It's a good thing they've got non-profit status
since I'm not sure they would know what to do with a proft it they managed
to earn one!
