We got more information that the Native American Tribes all have been paid. That is good. They were paid yesterday and we had several verifications of that. We are looking for more and more activity to come out of the west coast. We are feeling good about that. That is confirmation from people we normally don’t hear from about that. We thought that is good. That is news that doesn’t normally come out about that.
It should happen tomorrow. Iraq’s Gazette usually comes out Wednesday and Saturday. Tomorrow is a good day to bring it out. Tomorrow the Gazette usually comes out at first Morning Prayer shortly after sunrise. That is something between now and midnight on the east coast. Should be something they put in the Gazette. How soon would we see it? I do not know. That would be positive if it was put out.
Everything is ready to go. Then we heard yesterday that the Treasury had a meeting. The Secretary of the Treasury was on a phone call and a phone call came in to let them know that everything is done and they wanted all done today. We were getting contacts in the US Treasury talking about this going and going even last night by midnight, and I heard couple of other people give earlier times. We didn’t get it in the sense of 800 numbers. We know it is in the hands of the banks now because it has been released by the Treasury to do it.

The US Treasury had signed off, the go ahead was given. The redemption centers are also ready to go.
Chase and Citibank not redemption centers are contacting people, their clients or people that purchased currency they know about.
Rates are on the bank screens. They are not testing and not teaser rates.
I hope I make a pre-celebration call before Thursday.
