Wednesday afternoon, President Obama proposed numerous measures in response to a string of recent mass shootings across the country, including one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 20 children and six adults were murdered by a gunman.
On Wednesday morning, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his knee. His recovery time is expected to be six to eight months, which means he should be ready for the start of the 2013 season. But will he be the same?
On Wednesday, baseball's Hall of Fame will announce the players who comprise the 2013 class of inductees—or they will announce that no one has surpassed the 75 percent voting mark required for induction. Which would be remarkable, given that some of the greatest players ever to step on a baseball diamond are on the ballot this year. So why the uncertainty? Steroids, of course.
It's a busy time at the movies these days. Studios are trying to get all their releases in before the December 31 Oscar deadline, and they're also vying for your precious holiday dollar. This week's offerings include a few that came out on Christmas—Quentin Tarantino's latest, an adaptation of a much loved musical, a family comedy, and a documentary about the justice system—and the first collaboration between Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant since 'Good Will Hunting,' due out Friday.
Here's a look at some notable birthdays being celebrated today:
Jimmy Buffett Age: 66 Occupation: Singer, Songwriter and Musician Known For: His "island escapism" style of music, songs such as 'Margaritaville' and 'Come Monday,' his devoted base of fans known as Parrotheads, and owning several themed restaurants
Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, read a statement Friday morning in reaction to last week's shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. He called for installing armed guards in schools to prevent future gun violence against students.
This weekend sees a variety of new releases, from star-studded Hollywood action and big-name comedy, to smaller, art-house fare and an animated classic now in 3-D. And that’s not even including next Tuesday’s Christmas openings, which, all combined, makes for a very busy—and very fun—holiday moviegoing experience.
