Geithner's Tuesday (He'll get heavy press coverage)

On Tuesday morning, Treasury Secretary Geithner will lead a town hall discussion with employees from across the Treasury Department and its bureaus.

In the afternoon, Secretary Geithner and Special Advisor Elizabeth Warren will host a "mortgage disclosure forum" at Treasury. According to Treasury:
With the improvement of disclosures for mortgages and other financial products a top priority for the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the forum will bring together a broad range of stakeholders and experts to provide input on the simplification of mortgage disclosure forms so that consumers have the clear and easy-to-understand information they need to make the financial choices that are best for themselves and their families
Note: Every day when I receive the daily report on Geithner activities, there are usually instructions for the press. Since this is an Elizabeth Warren show, everyone is getting in on the act. Here's  today's press instructions for the Geithner/Warren show:
