Okay, I guess we should get to City National and talk about what’s going on there. We think we have a really good story that is still not quite recognized, so I’ll flip to our first slide. This is just some highlights on our company – the 26 th largest commercial bank; 79 offices including 16 regional offices, and one of the things we’ll talk about later is our wealth management business which is one of the distinguishing features of our company.These are six themes that I’m going to cover today, but one of the themes that I’d like to talk about a little bit, without dredging up the past too much – I’m not going to go back to the whole financial downturn – but one of the things that I think City National did different than many of the regional banks is, for regional banks that were in difficult markets which we were, we came out of the market earlier and we’ve made a substantial amount of investments in our company whether it’s hiring more salespeople or opening more offices. And I do think that we are, and we started seeing it late last year and continue to see it this year, the benefits of adding more salespeople and more offices and more capabilities. So we’re seeing that in numbers.
