Pep Rally for NC Bankers — North Carolina Public Radio WUNC
Banking has become a bad word during this current economic crisis and bankers are complaining their status and respect has fallen to the level of lawyers and - journalists. This week some 300 North Carolina Bank Directors gathered for their annual meeting - a pep rally of sorts. Leoneda Inge reports...

It's actually an interesting story to listen to, and I do have a couple of friends in the banking industry who are decent guys. I'm pretty sure I've never seen them in a private jet. And since their respect level has fallen to lawyerly levels, let me just say....welcome to my world. Sorry you're feeling ill-used and put upon. You get used to it.

So here's my solution to their malaise: Give every banker a banjo.
