~ Curious about who to thank for sponsoring many of the inaugural events you may be privvy to attend in Washington? The Wall Street Journal says many Wall Street bail-out executives and employees banned together as the largest Obama inaugural contributors. They've provided about $25 million of the nearly $28 million that Obama's organization has raised for the festivities.

~ What about concerts? Jay-Z, President of the Hip-hop Nation, has a don't-miss mega concert set for the Warner Theater on Jan. 19th -- live band and all! Can't you just imagine super-cool President Obama and the entire crowd going wild when Jay-Z performs Dirt Off Your Shoulders? Little did Jay-Z and producer Timbaland know back in 2006 that the hip-hop beat they collaborated on would have a role in inspiring the nation's first African American president to stay focused and get the job done. Yep!
