BB&T Takes a Stand

I bank with BB&T and have thought about changing, but an article in today’s Washington Times may make me change my mind. The title of the article is BB&T Opposes Eminent Domain, and here’s a quote from the CEO:

“The idea that a citizen’s property can be taken by the government solely for private use is extremely misguided; in fact, it’s just plain wrong,” said John Allison, the bank’s chairman and chief executive officer.

It’s nice to see bankers standing on principle.
