Well, I've got two e-mails. One from a Texas community member so I have no problem believing her. She was among 100 people just fired by Chase Manhattan this week. I have an e-mail from someone I don't know and have not heard of who tells me he was one of 200 fired this week by Chase Manhattan. I have an e-mail from a reader who writes every now and then and is in Florida. She says they were told that a firing is probably about to take place.
So what's going on there? Is Chase Manhattan quietly firing to avoid news of a mass layoff?
I don't know. I'm otssing out what I've got.
