More stimulus details

Three updates on the stimulus package today:

1. Obama releases his first weekly video address, discussing "how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan will jump-start the economy."

2. The White House announces the creation of a new website to track ARRP stimulus spending, available at the (one hopes aptly named) recovery.gov.

3. The address and website are paired with a "Recovery Plan Metrics Report" (pdf), which lays out the goals of the ARRP.
