    Fox Business' Elizabeth MacDonald wrote an interesting article on the state of commercial real estate mortgages and the TALF and PPIP programs.  Some highlights:
    • $1.4 trillion of CRE loans are maturing in the next 5 years.
    • An estimated $165-$204 billion will mature this year.
    • There isn't enough capital strength on banks and insurance companies' balance sheets to refi the loans.
    • The CMBS market is, for the moment, virtually stalled.
    Issues mentioned in the article include WFC, C, BAC, RF, STI, KEY, MI, ZION, CMA.
