We continue to hear the problems with the banking industry, and I am somewhat perplexed by what I see in my own backyard.
Count the number of banks from State Line to I-35 along 135th Street. If the banks are hurting as much as indicated, why are they not closing facilities like other businesses do in trying times? Within two miles of my home are three Bank of America locations. Along that same road, one will see several new strip malls that have been sitting idle for long periods of time, and yet we see new construction of similar facilities.
Who is carrying the paper on all of this? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
