Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The new Benghazi movie looks junky and the new Kevin Hart movie inane, so it may be a weekend to stay out of the multiplex. Television: Bill Maher returns for a new season on Friday. PBS premieres a Civil War drama on Sunday, right after “Downton.” Music: Only death could topple Adele from the top spot: thank you, David Bowie. I’ve been listening to “Ziggy Stardust” all week. Books: The right-wing distortions of American history never cease to amaze me. Latest example: “The Jefferson Lies” by David Barton. Sports: I wish I could say I had a dog in the NFL playoff hunt, but I don’t. Back to hockey! Finally: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” – MLK, Jr.
