Interesting article in the Post today - Local Banks Feeling Pinched: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/06/AR2008040601820_2.html?hpid=topnews The interesting part for me is at the end:Cardinal Financial has weathered the turbulent credit markets and had essentially no nonperforming loans on its books at year's end. The McLean company's mortgage-banking subsidiary, George Mason, also remained profitable last year, though profits declined.Bernard H. Clineburg, chief executive of the company, said Northern Virginia will remain a difficult place for community banks for at least the rest of the year."I think there is a bomb waiting to blow," Clineburg said. "I can feel it. I can smell it. I just don't know where it is going to be."
