FDIC orders Darien/Rowayton bank to cease and desist. “It don’t mean nuttin’ ” John Bowes the bank’s chairman insisted to our reporter Edgar Martins. “So we can’t loan out money anymore – big friggin’ deal. All that paperwork? Fugheddahboutit. We’re better off relaxing in the a/c doing crosswords. We ain’t worried.”
That’s the kind of confidence all our local banks could use.
