Oh well

My bank failed.

Thank the Gods for the FDIC, is all I can say. Not that I have a whole lot of money in the bank, but the point is, ugh.

Today Citibank purchased Wachovia and that means that I now have a new bank. You know, one shops for banks. I did anyway. I decided on Wachovia purposely. 

I guess that doesn't matter now.

In other news, The Bailout didn't pass, and I'm not certain if that is good or bad. I can tell you that it made me uncomfortable for that much money in taxpayer dollars to be going to this deal. I just don't know what's going on anymore, other than thank the Gods I'm used to having so little already. Thank the Gods I have no stock. 

I just don't know what's going to happen to this country. It sucks.

I do not know whether to be for or against that bailout. It was a lot of money and I would rather not hand nameless people money to fix their own mess. Then again I want the economy to pick up.

You and me both, with the switcheroo. I, too, now bank at CitiBank nee Wachovia nee First Union. I've had the same bank account since 1988, and despite the name changes, the services have either improved or remained the same. Nothing's gotten worse.
