David Letterman was pretty thoroughly savaged by the press for his performance as host of the Academy Awards broadcast. But he's ready to do it again, he said in his first interview since the Oscars. "Overall, I enjoyed the experience, as strange as that may sound. The only thing that is sort of residually troubling to me is the notion that I embarrassed myself. But having developed fairly thick skin over my 48 years, that's not too much of a problem."What was a problem, he said, was trying to re-create the seat-of-the-pants feeling of his "Late Show" on CBS."

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.

And because of this, it concluded, "I will drive the car I want to drive," positing the reborn Charger muscle car as "Man's Last Stand." Why it worked: It was cleverly written, and the visuals - a series of men staring blankly at the camera - were arresting.
