    Got Weekend Plans? You Do Now.

    There are two things going on this weekend worth checking out. First, the National Book Festival presented by the Library of Congress and hosted by First Lady Laura Bush. Dozens of authors will be attending the event (held on the National Mall, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm Saturday) including Bob Woodward — gee, think he has anything interesting to talk about?

    Or, for something a little more wonky, check out the Day of Ideas, presented by The Atlantic magazine. Several discussions and panels will be taking place, such as “Can We Compete? America in the Global Marketplace” and “The Future of Privacy in America” and featuring speakers such as Carl Cannon, Rudy Maxa and David Ignatius.

    So try something cultured for a change. It’ll be great. Besides, it’s not like there’s any good football on this Saturday anyway.

    TEAM SPRINGER: Update

    Because we know that you, like us, stopped watching as soon as Tucker was kicked off, we thought we’d still give you an update on how Tucker’s pick for the “Dancing with the Stars” title is doing : Jerry Springer’s still hanging in there.

    Wow.

    Ah, sweet punditry…

    Curious George’s Curiosity Pays Off

    From ABC:

      On “World News” last night, Chief Washington correspondent George Stephanopoulos broke the Jack Abramoff story. He outlined information on the forthcoming congressional report that suggests a more extensive relationship between Abramoff and White House and RNC officials than previously acknowledged.

      He did a two-way with Charlie Gibson at the top of the show.

    See the story he filed for ABCNEWS.com.

    Time Cartoons

    Since it’s Friday (and Cartoon Day, apparently), we thought we’d share with you how Time is cartooning their reporters and columnists:

    Nat’s Radio Future Still Unclear

    The Examiner’s Jim Williams reports today that while the Nationals organization stands to make millions of dollars through a television deal with MASN, they still lack a permanent radio home:

      Washington is still looking for a long-term radio home. But the Nats may do a one-year deal to stay with WTWP for another season, then look around and do a longer deal as they move into the new stadium.

    Sol Schildhause Dies at 89

    The Washington Post reports today on the death of Sol Schildhause, the first chief of the Federal Communications Commission’s cable television bureau.

    Schildhause was one of the first, as well as most avid, advocates of cable television at the industry’s inception and continued his advocacy throughout his life.
