Apparently, a friend of mine who works for CMC (which got bought out by 5/3) has said that their new colors are going to be blue and green (instead of red/black or red/navy like it is now). Managment is being quiet, but rumor says that they're being bought out by Wachovia. I don't read the business papers, but has anyone heard this?

Anyone know the origin of "Fifth Third?"


Fifth Third's unusual name is the result of the June 1, 1908 merger of two banks, The Fifth National Bank and The Third National Bank, to become The Fifth Third National Bank of Cincinnati. Because the merger took place during a period when prohibitionist ideas were gaining popularity, it was believed that "Fifth Third" was better than "Third Fifth," which could be construed as a reference to "three fifths" of alcohol. The name went through several changes over the years, until on March 24, 1969, the name was changed to Fifth Third Bank.
