    To suggest that BB&T was lucky due to the fact they lacked the knowledge or sophistication to participate in "exotic" investments is simply an uninformed and inaccurate statement. What I'd say is that it was precisely because they did understand the risks involved they chose to avoid these products. I worked for the company for 30 years and over that period observed John Allison, Henry Williamson, Ken Chalk, Scott Reed and Kelly King. Now I'll have to say toosmart that judging from your posts alone you don't impress me as one who could go toe to toe with John or Henry. BB&T has grown from a $350 million eastern NC agricultural bank to $175 billion multi-state franchise. Other than criticizing this organization, what have you accomplished?
