It has certainly been a busy week.

Now that the stimulus package has been signed into law, the Obama administration is moving on to address other issues such as health care and the war in Iraq after the President addressed a joint session of Congress, and by proxy the nation Tuesday night.
Everyone (mostly Republicans for some reason) might not agree with everything he has said and done, but one cannot deny that President Barack Obama is addressing the issues facing this country while trying to keep his campaign promises.

The main winners of the the 81st Academy Awards Sunday night were:
Slumdog Millionaire for best picture and best director (Danny Boyle).
Sean Penn for best actor (Milk).
Kate Winslet for best actress (The Reader).
The late Heath Ledger for best supporting actor (Batman: The Dark Knight).
Penelope Cruz for best supporting actress (Vicky Cristina Barcelona).
Wall*E for best animated picture.

Meanwhile in sports:
Jim Calhoun, coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Connecticut, received his 800th career victory when the UConn Huskies beat Marquette 93-82 on February 25th.
Preseason baseball is underway between spring training camps in Florida and Arizona while the federal investigations and trials into steroid use are proceeding apace.
