Hillary Clinton held a press briefing at the State Department on Wednesday. She fielded questions on the Libyan crisis with great authority. Her sense of command comes as no surprise when you remember she had eight years of experience as Commander in Chief.

Japan continued cleaning up after its epic earthquake Wednesday. The entire Pacific Rim is on edge after Chile, New Zealand and Japan. Just to be safe, people in L.A. watched Kirstie Alley compete on "Dancing with the Stars" Tuesday night while standing in a doorway.

Toyota announced Wednesday it's shutting down its Lexus plants in Japan for awhile, which could cut off Lexus exports to the U.S. It's a blow to auto safety. The car's tendency to accelerate wildly without any warning made Americans too scared to text while driving.

The New Hampshire Union-Leader reporter Kevin Provencher was charged with running a prostitution ring. He advertised women online and rented out hotel rooms all over New England to his customers. Every 10th trick is free with your Marriott Rewards Points.
