  •  I agreed with them on that point. (0+ / 0-)

    And there's no implication. My article says they got $1.5 billion from the TARP, and they did.

    How much influence should one quarter of one percent of deposits give?

    100% influence on one quarter of one percent of deposits.

    •  OK. I can't argue with that. (0+ / 0-)

      This Northern Trust thing has really got me scratching my head, though.

      I've always thought that, if we were going to spread federal money around to save the financial system, we should be spending it at banks, etc that haven't been run into the ground so that they can buy off pieces of the bad guys.

      This 1.5 billion seems about half way to what I was thinking -- money to a bank that's not in trouble, but not letting bad guys fail so they have pieces to pick over?

      I'm just not smart enough for this crap.

      Free speech? Yeah, I've heard of that. Have you?
