Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro made an appearance on Monday with The Century Council's Ask Listen Learn program on Monday.
We've had a fantastic time watching the 2010 Winter Games the past two weeks! Did you watch our SuperStar Apolo Anton Ohno as he skated his way into history? Now the holder of eight medals, he is the most decorated Winter Olympian in history.
It was an honor to be a part of the action. We brought our Ask, Listen, Learn interactive activity to Canada to encourage kids to stay active. Kids and parents were welcomed into the Spyder-US Ski Team House in Whistler to play the game and meet two members of the U.S. Winter Ski Team, Kikkan Randall and Andy Newell.

Dear Distressed Mum,
First, let me address the two big issues: trust and control.
