Despite a $1.6-billion investment in new security measures at LAX since 9/11, Friday's shooting by a gunman who made his way deep into a passenger terminal demonstrates that the airport remains vulnerable to attacks that appear costly and difficult to defend against. Lobbies, ticketing counters, baggage claim areas and sidewalks of the nine terminals at Los Angeles International Airport, the nation's third-busiest, are easily accessible to attackers intent on bringing firearms or bombs into the airport's public areas.

No one is safe in the topsy-turvy NFL. The Buffalo Bills are on their third starting quarterback, yet they matched the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs score for score until the fourth quarter. The Chiefs won, 23-13, in a game that was closer than the score suggests. The Cleveland Browns are on their third quarterback too. They beat defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore, 24-18, ending the Ravens' 11-game winning streak against them. And the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Surely, they would be rolled in Seattle.

"The Square" bears witness to history in an articulate, thoughtful and intensely dramatic way. A compelling inside look at the cascading series of revolutions and counter-revolutions that have shaken Egypt since the beginning of 2011, it wouldn't exist except for the passion and determination of filmmaker Jehane Noujaim. An accomplished documentary director whose credits include "Control Room" and "Startup.com," Noujaim was raised in Egypt and the United States, and her family lives 10 minutes from Cairo's Tahrir Square, the film's namesake.

Into every generation a sketch comedy (sometimes two or three or more) is born. Indeed, we can write the cultural history of our times in their names, from Sid Caesar's "Show of Shows" to the variety shows of Carol Burnett and Flip Wilson, to "Saturday Night Live" and "SCTV," to "Kids in the Hall" and "In Living Color" and "Mad TV," to "Key & Peele" and "Incredible Crew," with many more in between and yet to come. The latest link in this chain of laffs is "The Birthday Boys," premiering Friday on IFC. Its eponymous stars work out of the L.A. Branch of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (see also: "Upright Citizens Brigade," the late-'90s Comedy Central series that featured UCB co-founder Amy Poehler)

PHOENIX - The clinching is slowly becoming a clenching. The Dodgers are going to win a game that puts them in the playoffs, and it will probably happen this week, but at this rate the sounds of cork popping will be drowned out by teeth grinding. For the fourth straight day their magic number is still four - and still apparently hiding somewhere up their sleeves - after a 2-1 loss to Arizona on Monday night in a game that was typified by the final out. Remember Matt Kemp? In his first appearance in nearly two months after suffering through ankle and hamstring injuries, he came to the plate as a pinch-hitter with two out in the ninth inning and the tying run on third base and the go-ahead run on second.
