    Are we correct?

    King's 200% increase in compensation is outrageous, it does however provide clear insight as to where the board's priorities lie. Doubling King's pay while increasing dividends by one cent provides the clearest indication that BB&T is beiong run for the exclusive benetfit of senior management and the board. The employees and retirees, who hold collectively a major blobk of common stock, should find some means of unifying their votes and forcing a minimum a 3-4 seats on the board.
