The Treasury announced the receipt of over 100 applications for the public-private toxic assets swap meet.

Ken Lewis had his big referendum today at the B of A shareholders’ annual jamboree, and as of this writing, the results on the vote tally are still unclear.  Will he stay or will he go is still the question.

Tonight, we’ve got earnings from Visa (V) on tap with The Street looking for .64 per share.
