major financial institutions continued to gather in emergency meetings trying \
to complete a plan to rescue the stricken bank.  Several possible plans emerged \
from the talks, held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and led by Timothy R. Geithner, \
the president of the New York Fed, and Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr."


ner.cli(
    9191, text,
    function(err, tags){
        console.log('cli tags: '+JSON.stringify(tags)+'\n');
    }
