Community Banks have been a great place to coin money for many years.

The first play was in the 80's when you could go around and open accounts to qujalify for shares pre IPO and it was pretty much a lock.

Lately, all you had to do in the Boston area is make easy rough guesses at who TD Bank North or Citizens would buy next.

Its really simple: Community Bankers LIVE to be bought by other Bankers.
It's the only way George Bailey ever gets a shot at stardom, 3-7 million and an early retirement as payback for not going to Europe or lasooing the moon.

I've been watching this one and then it shows in Barron's....@#$%!!
My gift to youz: CNBKA
