There is a dirty, unconfirmed rumor on the street that a NC based bank is preparing to acquire Union Planters. This is Not to say the rumor is true, of course, but is merely to let you know in case you haven't heard it yet.
and it's BBT doing the buying, then I guess I'll be able to do my banking via BB&T on my regular pilgrimages to Graceland. Should the merger go through, I will honor it by visiting my local BB&T branch in my impersonator outfit. You know who.
I have just looked around a bit and from what I can find about UPC it looks like a good fit for BBT. Of course we still need to know if the merger is going forward and what price BBT will pay to get it.
By the way, I was not around yesterday sooooo HAPPY BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY DR. JUN JUN.
