Oh, dear. Making my news rounds this morning (online, in concentric circles: Seattle Times, New York Times, Guardian) I find this.
So I’ll be doing business with a different bank, no biggie. However, in a strange coincidence, 3 of my neighbors work at Washington Mutual’s headquarters in Seattle, in various capacities–our little street is like WaMu commuter central. I suppose we’ll find out soon what happens to their jobs.
