Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near UB in Mount Vernon? Spacey told David Letterman last night that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee. "So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl. Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

The deadly 2012 attack by militants on U.S. government posts in Benghazi, Libya, was preventable according to a recently released report by the Senate Intelligence Committee, and it was the fault of the U.S. State Department for inadequate security precautions. Several months before the attacks on an American diplomatic post and CIA compound in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had issued numerous reports warning that security in eastern Libya was deteriorating and that U.S. personnel and posts there were at risk.

Much is being made of former President Bill Clinton's swearing-in of New York's new mayor, Bill de Blasio, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at their side at City Hall. The cameo apparently sought to declare Democratic harmony in Gotham, that supposed bastion of liberalism. In a sense, it was a gathering of the Clinton political clan. Mr. De Blasio was a one-time subordinate at the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the Clinton administration under then-Secretary Andrew Cuomo, son of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, himself a liberal icon.

A $1 million, second-tier Mega Millions ticket has been sold at a 7-Eleven in Clinton, said Maryland Lottery officials on Wednesday morning. Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett said that the winning ticket was a manual pick, meaning that the purchaser chose the numbers. The winning numbers were 4, 23, 30, 43, 50 and 11 (Mega Ball). Everett added that the winning ticket came on the last draw of a 15-draw advanced purchase. The ticket was purchased on Aug. 27, and the winner now has 182 days to claim the prize, Everett said.

The only real accountability for the Benghazi scandal will have to come in 2016. Reading through the competing partisan reports and listening to the congressional testimony of various officials last week, it seemed fair to say that no actual crimes were committed (though you never know what you don't know). There were, in at least a figurative sense, criminal lapses in judgment by senior officials. Many of those lapses are recounted in the Accountability Review Board report. It found "systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department" that "resulted in a special mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.

Arsenio Hall returns to latenight TV tonight after almost two decades away. And, after all that time, he will still be one of only two African-American show hosts occupying that culturally influential space on a nightly basis. The other, comedian W. Kamau Bell, host of “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” launched last week in a Sunday-through-Thursday 11 p.m. time slot on the brand-new cable channel FXX. The diversity that Hall brings to the time period - simply with his presence in a syndicated show airing in 85 percent of the country - would be reason enough for rooting him on. But I have also long felt that Hall didn't get anywhere near the credit he deserved for opening up late night to younger viewers and some new voices on his show that ran from 1989 to 1994.

The first voice in Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie" belongs to Tom Wingfield, a budding poet trapped in a boring day job. Serving as guide through the playwright's exquisitely crafted layers of memory and anxiety, Tom dispenses "truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion. " For its season-opening production of this certified classic of the American stage, Everyman Theatre has cast one of its most versatile and gifted resident artists, Clinton Brandhagen, as Tom. "I had to read the play in high school," the Calgary-born Brandhagen, 36, said, "but I never looked at it again.

Not counting rumors that Anthony Weiner's marriage has hit a rocky patch, it may be the worst-kept secret in politics: Joe Biden wants to be president. On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that the vice president's inner circle is swabbing the decks, battening down the hatches and hoisting the mainsails for USS Bidenpalooza 2016. "Everyone involved in his world," a Democratic official told the Journal, "is engaged in taking all the steps that make sense to prepare for a run, if he does run. " Mr. Biden's people are apparently willing to go for it even if the allegedly inevitable nominee, Hillary Clinton, decides to run. Why is this happening?

It feels like this day is dragging, so we thought you might enjoy this as much as we do. P.S. Monica Lewinsky turns 40 this week. That is all.

It's past midnight at the end of a 14-hour workday, and a sane person would go to bed. But I feel compelled to drive a last nail into the coffin of one of the sorriest newsmagazines in the history of broadcast journalism, NBC's "Rock Center. " I have been relentlessly critical of this misguided, self-important vanity vehicle of anchorman Brian Williams since it debuted. But the decision of Williams and NBC News management to make Chelsea Clinton a "special correspondent" is what drove me to absolutely loathe "Rock Center.
