MEXICO CITY - El Salvador's presidential runoff was so close Sunday night that election officials declined to name a winner until a final count Monday. Adding to the confusion of the evening, left- and right-wing parties each declared victory, while conservative candidate Norman Quijano, who was trailing by just a few thousand votes, alleged in a blistering speech that the count was fraudulent. With nearly 3 million votes tallied - more than 99% of the total - Quijano, of the right-wing Arena party, was trailing Vice President Salvador Sanchez Ceren, who was a leftist guerrilla during the country's civil war, by 4,403 votes, according to the country's Supreme Electoral Tribunal.

NEW YORK - Making his debut as host of "Late Night" on Monday, Seth Meyers struck a decidedly low-key note in a broadcast that emphasized finely tuned punch lines over star power and razzle-dazzle. Meyers opened the NBC show by paying tribute to one of his predecessor's best-known recurring bits, "Thank You Notes. " Seated at his desk, Meyers wrote a letter to Jimmy Fallon, now host of "The Tonight Show," promising to treat "Late Night" "with respect and dignity and to only use it to do completely original comedy pieces … starting now," he said.

Question: All owners in my association received a letter from the board's vice president along with photos showing everything that's wrong in our building. Some things that were listed as "wrong" have been dormant for dozens of years, and still this high-rise has not fallen down and his issues do not pose a liability. Some things have been deliberately tampered with by the vice president so he could say that they are "wrong. " Now that he has sent this list to all owners, what are the ramifications if we want to sell our units?

While you're sitting on the couch watching TV this weekend and feeling like you should be doing something more with your life, take comfort in the fact that the leader of the free world might be doing the exact same thing! President Obama is scheduled to be at Sunnylands, the Annenberg estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif., for a three-day trip this weekend that includes a meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan. But when he's not doing that, apparently he's going to be spending part of the time sitting on the couch, powering through his new favorite HBO shows, "Game of Thrones" and "True Detective.

David Beckham knows what he's doing. This is a guy who has used his enormous popularity as a soccer player to become an international brand. So the former Galaxy star should trust his every instinct as he starts a Major League Soccer expansion team in Miami sometime between now and 2020, right? Uh, maybe not if his gut is telling him to name and fashion the team after a cheesy cop show from nearly three decades ago, remembered mainly for star Don Johnson's brightly colored fashion statements and an unmistakably '80s soundtrack.

NEW YORK -- As one of the most polished players in the NFL, Peyton Manning rarely has a mental slip-up when it comes to talking to the media. But the Denver Broncos quarterback had to catch himself this week when he referred to Broncos legend John Elway as "Coach Elway" - an endearing audible that speaks to his respect for the Hall of Fame quarterback who brought him to Denver. Elway is actually the team's vice president of football operations and has been deep in the background during Super Bowl week, largely avoiding center stage to allow the team he helped build enjoy the fruits of its success.
