Before tackling this week’s interesting mix of items from CU Land, including CU-people-turned songwriters, how this year’s March Madness Cinderella was compared to a credit union, and what’s happening in mergers outside CUs, I want to thank Harland Clarke for becoming the latest company to sponsor’s CUTomorrow Conference.

There’s a four-letter word one person says credit unions should stop using, and that won’t be easy, because bank-bashing is a staple of credit union meetings and media messages.
