Heard of anything going on in D.C. this weekend? (AP Photo/Charles Sykes).

It's Friday. All day.

Last week you wanted to talk about pets in costume and Juan Williams, but the close of another week brings a completely new set of talking points. It's always a joy -- and, usually, a surprise -- to see which stories you were most likely to share. Here they were:

Now it's time to get creative. Sum up the week's news in a tweet using #wpweek, and we'll post the best back here in this blog.

Will You HOBO UP with a GOP House?
I recently saw the CBS 60 minutes show about the 99ers and now it is Tier 5 or Hobo Up for us 99ers. We
live in a world with Unemployment Gone MAD and the New Depression Blues,and the CBS 60 minutes show on
Oct 24 2010 should be eye opener for everyone with or without a job! We need a NEW Tier 5 Extended
Unemployment Benefits Bill now or there will be a Hobo Up generation for future 99ers and others in the
street. During 1934 a million and half Hobos rode the rails according to the U S Bureau of Transient Affairs
and in 2011 we will need a new Government HOBO Program for 5 millions 99ers out of benefits if the GOP gains control of the house so we can learn
to ride the freight rails safely when migrating for work . Congress can call the low buck training film
with class (1 day) and related laws the HOBO UP ACT. The Bill can have old hobos showing the ropes to us newly minted hobos
which should be a bill that finally finds support from the GOP. Hopefully the S3706 Bill by Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow which seeks to
add an additional 20 weeks might find a miracle and pass after the election. Also currently IRS has only a
$2400 U/B tax free deduction. WE in addition need the JOBLESS STUB RETRO U/B TAX FREE ACT, a proposal bill
that makes all U/B 100% tax free. Thanks again for all any poltical support for Tier 5 from Artist Country Carl dot com
singer of the New Depression Blues and hopefully you too won’t have to HOBO UP. Jon Stewart Rally, I will be there
