Et cetera Maryland men's lacrosse attackman Benjamin Chisolm was cleared in a Virginia sexual assault case Thursday after being accused of molesting a woman at a concert, Chisolm's lawyer said. Prosecutors dropped the felony sex assault charge against Chisolm and a judge cleared him of assault after a brief bench trial, according to the attorney. But Chisolm was found guilty of being drunk in public and received a fine and community service. Chisolm and the woman were at a Zac Brown Band concert at the Jiffy Lube Live venue in June and she had fallen asleep.

Opening scenes are tricky. In minutes, writers have to establish a show's tone, make viewers care about fictional strangers and toss the audience a hint at where things are headed over the course of eight (or 12 or 22) episodes. For whatever reason, that's a challenge HBO shows both past and present typically ace compared to their network counterparts. Think about Amy Jellicoe's mascara-streaked meltdown on "Enlightened," the bait-and-switch gut punch that started "Six Feet Under" or Hannah Horvath getting cut off by her parents on "Girls.

In the spring of 2008, as the prospect that America would elect its first black president became more and more likely, the organization that did as much as any to make that watershed possible had fallen on hard times. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, America's oldest and best known civil rights group, was in disarray. It's last president and CEO had abruptly quit, and it had laid off half of its staff to balance the books. Its membership and relevance in what many were heralding as a post-racial America seemed destined to wane, and one of the defining institutions of the 20th century had no sure place in the 21st.

When Benjamin Jealous, at 35, became the youngest person ever to lead the NAACP in 2008, he took over an institution with a venerable name but whose greatest triumphs appeared to lie in the past. Mr. Jealous, who announced last week that he will step down from his post as president of the nation's oldest civil rights organization in January, quickly set about changing that, working to attract a younger generation of members with a more expansive vision of civil rights that addresses contemporary concerns.
