Good to see publicity getting dispersed beyond the ‘Fourth Corner’.  Wondering if it would be a good idea to issue a press release to other media outlets along the west coast with appropriate links to this issue?  This is certainly newsworthy!!

Thanks for your comment; this article was getting lonely.

I understand that Bellingham Herald growth reporter Jared Paben has taken an interest in this story.  Hopefully we’ll see something in the local paper soon.

Herald business reporter Dave Gallagher and I have exchanged emails a number of times on this topic; he may mention it as part of a larger article on local banks.

Seattle Times business reporter Drew DeSilver and I have also exchanged a number of emails.  He may refer to this issue when he does his quarterly bank update.

Your press release idea is intriguing.  Let me mull that over.

Nice to see a federal government agency actually doing its job rather than fostering lawlessness and greed and racketeering.

Maybe there is still hope for the hobbits living in the evil empire of doom.
