Washington Mutual--my bank--is now part of JPMorgan Chase; which, according to what I've been reading, has something like 2 trillion dollars in assets. Very big bank indeed. And I don't mind really. It's just that, in my life so far, the bank that was my family's neighborhood bank has changed hands three or four times. What I remember as once mighty "Anchor Bank" became "Dime." Then Dime begot "Washington Mutual;" and now WAMU is owned by JPMorgan Chase. P.S.>Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Trillion in Great Britain really Billion; and Billion is Trillion? It's the reverse here: millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions, etc., etc., etc.
