Hyland Remarks at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference
Good morning. It’s been a tough couple of years. I thought you might need some soothing music. Actually, I picked that song for three reasons. It’s a great tune by guitarist/songwriter Patty Larkin. It’s a tribute to my friend Mark Wolff of CUNA who for the last 15 years has been responsible for putting together this great conference and who introduced me to Patty Larkin’s music. And, last but not least, the tune is called Banish Misfortune/Open Hand which I think has poetic relevance to how most of us feel as we weather this economic crisis, particularly the “banish misfortune” part.
