We're back, and covering what we still have notes for from the previous week.
*President Barack Obama spent a few days overseas, concluding his trip with a visit to Africa. But while the President's focus upon his return will be health care reform, Republicans are now critiquing his efforts on domestic economic recovery thus far.
*New news reports are looking into the possibility that former Vice President Dick Chaney intentionally kept information from Congress during the Bush Administration from 2000-2008.
*Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor are scheduled to begin this week.
*While authorities are still investigating the matter, North Korea has become the prime suspect in a Cyber Attack that preceded their unauthorized July 4th missile test.
*David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox earned his 300th career home run this past week.
*In the conclusion of a game between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros, pitcher Joel Hanrahan was accredited with the win. Which is amazing since play in this game resumed 65 days after being postponed, the conclusion was held at the Astros' ballpark instead of Washington's for a roughly 1500 mile difference between fields, and that the Nationals had traded Hanrahan to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the interim!

And for those who would like or care to hear some good news involving a celebrity, it has been announced that actor/comedian Jim Carrey is going to be a grandfather.
