...as we all go off to start the weekend...

By Brian Williams, Anchor and managing editor

A few items of interest: Noonan on the Sotomayor Hearing, why Mark McKinnon is kinda happy Obama sneaks a few cigarettes now and again, and a few words from Bo Obama.  And since this very building contains one of the studios long rumored to be the "location" of the Apollo 11 moonwalk, there's this from Newsweek.  That should keep us all busy until Monday.

Thank you for being with us this week, and for joining us tonight.  Have a great weekend, and I'll see you on Monday night.
