Vinod Khosla doesn't much like the limelight. But the crowds of movie, cable and computer executives that formed around him every time he loped through the lobby of the Beverly Hilton during this week's Digital World conference made it hard for him to maintain his customary low profile. "We know a lot of people here," he agrees with self-conscious understatement. It's no wonder Khosla is so popular: He's the man with the money.

The Beastie Boys are staying with Capitol Records, having just renegotiated their deal with the company into what is said to be one of the largest and most innovative in the industry. But a lot of people in the music business wondered why the announcement made no mention of the trio's Grand Royal label--which had been a high-profile joint venture with Capitol. There's a good reason: Grand Royal is headed away from Capitol--and maybe out of the conventional record business world entirely.

The dressing room was really just a boys' bathroom with folding chairs, and the fanciest thing about the stage was the hanging stars fashioned from cardboard and crinkly aluminum foil. And you don't want to even know about the opening act, a mime whose robot dancing left the 700 kids in the audience looking similarly blank-faced.

David F. Levi seems an unlikely crime-buster. Soft-spoken and bespectacled, the Sacramento-based U.S. attorney for the eastern district of California looks to be more scholar than cop. But this son of a college president--and a U.S. attorney general--has engineered a sweeping 3 1/2-year investigation of political corruption that has rocked the state Capitol and led to the indictments of Sen. Joseph B. Montoya (D-Whittier) and a former top aide, plus a local sheriff and his former chief deputy.

President Obama took the unusual step Friday of turning to a Democratic predecessor, Bill Clinton, to help rescue the tax cut compromise plan, as conservative Republicans began to join a widening opposition that includes criticism from the president's own party. Clinton appeared with Obama in the White House briefing room to endorse the deal, in the latest twist of the lurching debate that has consumed Washington. It was the first such appearance by the former president during Obama's presidency.

The restaurant on Melrose Avenue was empty when Steve Blauner walked in, and the aging showbiz manager correctly surmised that his lunch date had rented the place out for efficiency, or maybe for effect. A waiter pointed Blauner to a rear room and its lone occupant, who rose from his table and extended his hand. It was the actor Kevin Spacey, bathed in a warm aura cast by the window at his back.
