On Monday night, will be digging into Georgia’s old case files to present The People v. Leo Frank, the story of a factory supervisor who was tried for the murder of a young girl who worked at the plant.

The case sparked national media attention, the trial carrying on for days and days until eventually Frank was convicted of the crime. A Yankee, a Jew, an outsider and a convenient target, Frank was charged with the terribly brutal murder of Mary Phagan, 13. After he was interred in jail, local citizens formed a vigilante squad to forcibly remove Frank from captivity. They took him to the outskirts of town, where a lynch mob waited. An unknown man later gave Frank’s wedding ring to his wife, ostensibly Leo’s last request.

That large white residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might be impressive, but it’s not the most exciting place ‘s been to this year. Earlier this week, the First Lady reached out to children everywhere with a PSA she recorded on Sesame Street. The clip, which also features that oh-so-cute red guy, stresses the importance of good eating.

An ecstatic Obama shared her joy with diplomats and staff members at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. “I’m thrilled to be here, but I was just at —I’m sorry. And I never thought I’d be on Sesame Street with Elmo and Big Bird and I was thrilled. I’m still thrilled. I’m on a high,” she said. “I think it’s probably the best thing I’ve done so far in the White House. But we were there talking about nutrition and healthy eating, and it’s just been a thrill.”

Obama is not the first FLOTUS to appear on the classic children’s program. Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton have both guested as well.

President addressed the nation last night with proper Congressional ceremony, with just about every major member of government in attendance. The President’s cabinet, which was finalized only hours before the big event, trotted in after the Supreme Court Justices to shake hands and show support. Obama was properly introduced by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as Joe Biden looked on from her right. Before them spread both sides of Congress, many of whom rose to their feet in applause during Obama’s more rousing points.

It was not unlike so many similar speeches conducted in years past, and yet it was. Obama delivered a mixture of hope and grave words, much as expected. He praised the recently-passed stimulus package and announced the online address which details the spending of the bill (). He spoke of future goals - health care, clean energy - and ended on a positive note.

Looking and sounding appropriately grave, President delivered his Farewell Address to the nation last evening. He only preempted 15 minutes of programming and talked for about 13…but did it feel to anyone else that his speech utterly dragged on for ever? Once it was all over, I was wondering if Inauguration Day had already come and gone.

But no, not just yet it hasn’t. And as of today, President Bush can still make as many speeches as he want and we’ll all hum “All Hail the Chief” when he walks into a room. But ’s day in the Oval Office draws ever nearer - the event which promises to go down in Washington history is less than one week away.

In his speech, Bush pat himself on the back and spoke lengthy words of praise for America as a nation. He related stories of the aftermath from 9/11. He spoke hopefully of how strong the country shall one day be. He even seemed to provide a rare glimpse into his daily life as President, pointing out that life never returned to normal for him after the chilling terrorist attacks on the country.
