President Barack Obama will be speaking at Federal Hall in lower Manhattan to discuss financial reform today (it is the eve of the one year anniversary of Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy filing), so expect traffic diversions on the roads while some subway station entrances and exits may be temporarily closed and bus routes may be diverted. As for his pitch, Obama wants Congress to pass financial regulatory reform; the Washington Post reports, "He will urge members of the financial community 'to take responsibility, not only to support reforming the regulatory system but also to avoid a return to the practices on Wall Street that led us to the financial crisis,' an administration official said Sunday."
