I’m traveling today, which means that there is an excellent chance that I missed a headline or two.  If you know one, leave it in the comments section.  If you don’t, read the comments section.  I’ll bet there’s a couple good links there by the end of the day.  We also won’t have any updates from Washington D.C., so be sure to check Streetsblog Capitol Hill for the news from Congress and more.  That being said, we have plenty of original content going up today, so be sure to check back often.
