SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – AT 9:15 P.M. ET:

YOU HAVE A FRIEND – The supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has established his own Facebook page.  It's here.  Friend him.  Send him photos.  What fun!  Ask him to friend you as well.  Tell him about things he'd appreciate, like spring break and hip-hop dancing. 

AND NOW WE KNOW – Finally, we get scientific proof of something I'd always suspected.  A headline in today's London Telegraph actually reads, "Men's friendships with women 'driven by sexual attraction.'"  I'd seen hints of this, but not until today was I really sure.  Thank you, world of science.  I wonder how much government money went into this momentous discovery.

AND IN 50 YEARS – A British Nobel laureate in medicine predicts that we'll have human cloning within 50 years.  Imagine, we could have an exact copy of Harry Reid, or Chris Matthews.  What an exciting world it will be if we never have to say a permanent good-bye to Fareed Zakaria.   Clearly, there will be a major ethical debate over the advancing science of cloning, but I'd imagine it could change dramatically the way we see life, for better or worse.

BREAKING – We're getting first reports of the study conducted for the State Department on the Benghazi attack.  Apparently, it is highly critical of the department.  We're hearing that Hillary Clinton has already accepted a number of its recommendations.  The report also apparently confirms that there were no demonstrations at Benghazi related to that now-famous YouTube video, before the military assault was launched.  Stand by for more on this.
