Health Law Fate Hinges on States Report: Politicians are hoping to use the issue for ’14 elections

So Who’s Buying It?

The greatest threats to the ultimate success of the health-care law come not from the technical problems that have plagued its rollout, but from a hostile political climate in many individual states and from potentially serious weaknesses in its design. Those are the conclusions of a cautionary report just published by the Brookings Institution’s new Center for Effective Public Management. The authors are center director Elaine C. Kamarck, who served as a top policy adviser in the Clinton administration, and Sheila P. Burke, who was chief of staff and top health-care adviser to former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan. “The highly politicized environment in which this law takes effect means that in the short-term, people will see what they want to see,” Burke and Kamarck wrote. To an extraordinary degree,

The Obama administration hasn’t released estimates on the expected enrollment in 2014 for the health-care marketplaces. But unpublished internal estimates obtained by The Associated Press say 7 million people will gain coverage. The draft, dated Sept. 20, broke down the figure of 7 million among states. It estimated the expected enrollment in California, for example, at 1. 3 million people in 2014. The estimate for Maryland was 150,000, 127,000 for Virginia and 43,000 people for the District of Colombia. (AP)

A new Brookings report raises concerns about how the new health-care law will fare.

they argued, the Affordable Care Act’s fate has been put in the hands of individual states — and therefore, will be subjected to political forces within those states. Its launch also coincides with an election year, which means that the agendas of the two parties will come into play. The law that is the signature achievement of Barack Obama’s presidency was passed by a Democratic-led Congress without

a single Republican vote. “Going forward, politicians are hoping to use the health-care issue to impact the midterm elections of 2014,” Burke and Kamarck wrote. “For Republicans, the hope is that the longstanding skepticism about the law will be reinforced as it is implemented and yield a political bonus in the 2014 midterm elections. Democrats obviously hope that a positive start will help reduce bar-

riers to implementing the law and improve their political prospects.” State elected officials have moved in partisan directions as they have exercised their options within the law. Among those choices: whether to expand their Medicaid programs to cover the poor, whether to set up their own health insurance exchanges or rely on the federal one, and how aggressively to promote the new coverage options.

Airlines Slim Down Seats New models will take up less space from front to back Travel It’s not your imagination. There really is a tighter squeeze on many planes these days. The big U.S. airlines are taking out old, bulky seats in favor of socalled slimline models that take up less space from front to back, allowing for five or six more seats on each plane. The changes, covering some of the most common planes flown on domestic and international routes, give the airlines two of their favorite things: more paying passengers and a smaller fuel bill because the seats are slightly lighter. It’s part of a trend among the airlines to view seats as money-makers, not just pieces of furniture. Add a few inches of legroom and airlines can charge more for tickets. Take away a few inches and they can fit more

But Will You Notice? Whether the new airline seats are really closer together depends on how you measure. By the usual measure, called “pitch,” the new ones are generally an inch closer together from front to back as measured at the armrest. This allows airlines to claim that passengers have as much above-the-knee “personal space” as they did before. New seats going into United Airlines’ Airbus A320s are an inch closer together from front to back. The new seats Southwest has put on nearly its entire fleet are 31 inches apart, about an inch less than before. In both cases, the airlines were able to add an extra row of six seats to each plane. Southwest went from 137 seats to 143, allowing it to expand flying capacity 4 percent without adding any planes. (AP)

seats on the plane. Some passengers seem to mind the tighter squeeze more than others. The new seats generally have thinner padding. And new layouts on some planes have made the aisles slightly narrower, meaning the dreaded beverage cart bump to the shoulder happens more often. And this is all going on in coach at a time when airlines are spending heavily to add better premium seats in the front of the plane. At 6-foot-3, Mike Lindsey of Lake Elsinore, Calif., doesn’t have

another inch to give back to the airlines. He has flown on Southwest several times since it installed the new seats. “You can’t stretch out because of the reduced legroom,” he says. “It’s very uncomfortable on anything longer than an hour.” Then there are passengers like Ryan Merrill. He says he didn’t really notice any difference in the new seats. “I’m used to being packed in like a sardine; I just assume that’s never going to change,” he says. JOSHUA FREED (AP)

Iran’s ‘Breakthrough’ Nuke Plan? Negotiator expresses confidence after U.N. bargaining session

Germany, who are meeting with Iranian officials in Geneva in a twoday summit that concludes today. “We think that the proposal we have made has the capacity to make a breakthrough,” he told reporters. Alluding to the international pressure over Iran’s nuclear program that has driven the country into near-pariah status, he said, “We no longer want to walk in the dark and uncertainty and have doubts about the future.” Iran’s version of a bargain is for international sanctions to be lifted in exchange for possible concessions it had been previously unwilling to consider, such as increased monitoring and scaling back on uranium enrichment — a potential path to nuclear arms and the centerpiece of the impasse with the West. A member of one of the delegations meeting with Iran said the plan offered reductions in both the

Report: Hundreds Die in Nigerian Detention Rights group says military denied care to detainees in need Lagos, Nigeria Hundreds of people are dying in military detention from shootings, suffocation or starvation as Nigeria’s security forces crack down on an Islamic uprising, Amnesty International said Tuesday.

More than 950 people died in military custody in the first six months of this year, according to “credible information” from a senior Nigerian army officer, the human rights group said. The Associated Press reported in August that hundreds of people detained by security forces in northern Nigeria had disappeared. The new Amnesty International report may help explain what happened to all those people.

If the number of deaths in military custody cited by Amnesty International is accurate, that means Nigeria’s military has killed more civilians than the extremists did during the first half of 2013. Detainees “were reportedly shot in the leg during interrogations, provided no medical care and left to bleed to death,” the London-based rights group said in the report, which includes testimony from freed detainees.

Three months after Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the northeastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe on May 14, the AP reported that hundreds were being rounded up in night raids. The state of emergency gives a task force of soldiers, police, intelligence and customs officials the right to detain people and move them from place to place, as well as the right to search without warrants.

Md.’s Provocative Plan for the Purple Line Details emerge in proposal to partner with private firms Bethesda Maryland transit officials’ proposal to have a private company design, build, operate and help pay for the light-rail Purple Line in the D.C. suburbs would be one of the first such arrangements in the United States, raising questions about the risks and financial effects. Only one other U.S. transit project — a commuter rail line in Denver — entails such a far-reaching public-private partnership, but it

is still under construction. Details of the 35-year Purple Line plan have begun to emerge as the Maryland Department of Transportation prepares to seek state approval to pursue it. A consortium of private companies would be expected to contribute $500 million to $900 million to the $2.2 billion project. The private team would be reimbursed for design, construction and equipment costs as work progressed over five years. The state would then pay the company $100 million to $200 million annually to operate and maintain the line for 30 years. The payments could be reduced if the company

Time to Decide The east-west Purple Line would run two-car trains along local streets and link communities between Bethesda and New Carrollton, Md., with Metro stations, MARC stations and Amtrak. Construction would not begin until at least 2015, but critical decisions about how the state would pay for, build and operate the line will be made over the next year. (T WP)

did not meet certain standards, such as providing reliable service. The private financing costs would be paid back over time with Purple Line fare revenue, officials said. If ridership on the 16-mile line did not materialize as anticipated, fare revenue from other Maryland transit systems would make up the difference, state officials said. Maryland transportation offi-

cials say such a partnership would take advantage of the private sector’s light-rail expertise and require the companies to assume the financial risks of any delays or cost overruns. The efficiencies gained from one private entity overseeing all aspects are projected to save up to 20 percent over 35 years, officials say. “There’s a really strong incentive for [the private companies]

to focus on quality and durability,” said Maryland Deputy Transportation Secretary Leif Dormsjo. The plan will get its first test of political support today, when the state Board of Public Works is scheduled to vote on whether to allow the Transportation Department to seek private proposals. The approach, while considered innovative, has drawn scrutiny. “It’s attractive,” said State Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr., who reviewed the plan as a member of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee. “But we don’t have very many, if any, examples of how this works out.” K ATHERINE SH AV ER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The perfect storm is coming to a hospital near you. There are dark clouds over America’s hospitals, and it’s about to get worse. Having already slashed billions from hospitals since 2010, Washington is now looking to cut them even further. With Americans living longer than ever and a third of all doctors expected to retire in the next decade, the timing couldn’t be worse for Congress to once again pay for other priorities on the backs of the nation’s hospitals. For the millions of Americans who rely on their already struggling community hospitals each and every day, it would be a perfect disaster. Enough is Enough.

Tell Washington: No More Hospital Cuts.

Richmond Playing out just across the Potomac River from shutdown central, the Virginia governor’s race has turned into a real-time test of Republican and Democratic positions in the congressional budget battle raging in the nation’s capital.

on the defensive while giving Democrat Terry McAuliffe an opening in a race that had been neck and neck for months. A new poll by Christopher Newport University shows McAuliffe holding a seven-point lead over Cuccinelli. His lead narrowed

Police: Man Admits to Stabbing

In Brief

Montgomery County officials asked the U.S. Department of the Interior to reopen Glen Echo Park, where nonprofit arts groups have sustained heavy losses as a result of the government shutdown. While Glen Echo is on federal park land, it is operated by the Glen Echo Partnership, a nonprofit created by the county.

slightly from the university’s poll of the race a week ago but remains within the range of a string of recent polls showing the McLean, Va., businessman with an edge in the closing days of the race. McAuliffe has been stoking the notion that Republicans are to blame for the shutdown and that Cuccinelli is no different from those whose demands helped trigger it. Meanwhile, Cuccinelli has sought to carefully distance himself from House GOP leaders and tea party lawmakers without alienating his conservative core supporters or moderate independents. — particularly in the affluent and fast-growing Washington suburbs.

Richmond Dominion Virginia Power, which delivers power to 839,109 customers in Northern Virginia and 2.4 million statewide, filed a rate decrease request Tuesday that, if approved, would lower a typical residential customer’s bill by $3.70 a month. The proposed cut in the fuelrate charge would reduce the cost of power for someone who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours per month from $112.05 to $108.35. Business and industrial customers would see greater savings, since the fuel rate makes up a larger portion of their bills. Dominion asked the State Corporation Commission that the change take effect Dec. 1. The charge pays for fuel Domin-

ion uses in its power stations to produce electricity, including natural gas, coal and uranium. Milderthan-expected weather and lower commodity gas prices than expected this year led to the request, said Dominion spokesman Chuck Penn. If approved, Dominion’s residential rates will be 8 percent below the Virginia average, 16 percent lower than both the D.C. area and national average, and 22 percent lower than the East Coast average.

A Shrug at Doomsday? Confident investors bank on Congress making a deal just in the nick of time

EVAN VUCCI (AP)

Warren Buffett likens it to a nuclear attack. Economists warn that government spending on programs like Social Security would plunge. The Treasury says the economy would slide into a recession worse than the last. Yet you wouldn’t know that a U.S. debt default could amount to a nightmare from the way many companies and investors are preparing for it: They aren’t. The assumption seems to be that in the end, Washington will find a way to avert a default. “Doomsday is nigh, and everyone shrugs,” said Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group, an investment brokerage in New York. Brian Doe, a wealth adviser at Gratus Capital Management in Atlanta, has 35 clients who have entrusted him with $50 million for safekeeping. He isn’t losing sleep over a potential default. Neither are his clients, apparently. Not one has called him about the issue, he said. “I’ve not done anything,” he said. He puts the odds of default very low. “People in Washington are stupid but not that stupid.” Marcello Ahn, a fund manager in Seoul, South Korea, is more prepared, sort of. He doesn’t think the U.S. will default. But if it does, the economically sensitive stocks of shipbuilders and chemical companies will get hit especially hard. So he’s held off buying them. But he hasn’t sold a single stock or made any big moves to protect his portfolio. “We are not taking actions based on the worst-case scenario,” he said. That worse case is inching closer. The Treasury says it will run out of money to pay its bills if Congress doesn’t increase its borrowing author-

No Deal in the House?

Cause for Concern

Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s effort to end the shutdown appeared to be in serious doubt after a vote scheduled on the matter was postponed Tuesday night. The measure would raise the debt limit through Feb. 7, as in earlier proposals from both the House and Senate. But it would fund federal agencies only through Dec. 15, creating the threat of another shutdown just before Christmas if lawmakers fail to resolve a dispute over sequester spending cuts. Some conservatives expressed dismay at the plan, especially after the removal of a key concession to postpone the medical-device tax that is part of the new health-care law. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The Fitch credit rating agency warned Tuesday that it is reviewing the U.S. government’s AAA credit rating for a possible downgrade, citing Thursday’s looming deadline. Fitch placed the U.S. credit rating on negative watch, a step that would precede an actual downgrade. Meanwhile, stocks tumbled in the final hour Tuesday as the House and Senate battled over measures to end the shutdown. All three major indexes closed near the day’s lows. (AP/ T WP)

“Nobody can imagine the consequences, so we don’t have any plans.” — AN OFFICIAL RESPONSE BY FRANCE’S TOTAL OIL COMPANY TO THE POTENTIAL FOR A U.S. DEFAULT

ity by Thursday. That includes paying interest and principal on already issued U.S. Treasurys, considered the most secure financial bet in the world. Treasurys are used as collateral in trillions of dollars of loans roll-

ing over every day. They are also the standard against which the riskiness of stocks and bonds are measured. A default would cast doubt on the value of those assets and throw the global financial system into chaos. Which is a key reason many seem unready for it: Why bother if you can’t really protect yourself? Still, the business world isn’t entirely unprepared. Big U.S. companies have been hoarding cash. And financial regulators, major banks and mutual funds have moved to shore up their defenses, too. Cash may be one of the few failsafe options. Spooked by the financial crisis, big U.S. companies in the S&P

500 stock index have piled up a record $1.1 trillion of cash. They’ve drawn criticism for not using it to expand or hire. But the move may end up being wise. Many now have enough to pay their bills for several months in a pinch, letting them avoid the panicked lenders that refused them money in the financial crisis. The cash cushion may help explain why U.S. stocks haven’t sold off more as default approaches. “Investors know that for better or worse, most companies have become their own banks,” said Colas, the strategist at ConvergEx. “In a way, we’ve been preparing for [default] since the financial crisis.” BERNARD CONDON (AP)

The amount of Republicans who say the country can go past Thursday’s deadline without major economic problems. There is a huge partisan split on this question, with 37 percent of Republicans and 67 percent of Democrats believing there would be an economic crisis.

‘default deniers’ The term White House press secretary Jay Carney gave such naysayers Tuesday. The White House has warned of a default if the debt-ceiling deadline isn’t met, but some Republicans say the government can still pay interest on its loans even if the debt ceiling isn’t raised — something they argue wouldn’t technically constitute a “default.” (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Benefield, general manager at The Westchester co-op in upper Northwest D.C. (4000 Cathedral Ave. NW, 202-338-7700). In reality, the increase often reflects the real estate tax, she says. Fees also vary based on services and other amenities that are provided. Selling your share requires approval from the co-op board of directors, since the new buyer is buying into the whole corporation.

Mike O’Dell lives in the Harbour Square co-op along the Southwest Waterfront.

“The biggest misconception people have [about co-ops] is that the fees are really high.” — A NN BENEFIELD, GENERAL MANAGER

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

AT THE WESTCHESTER CO-OP

Intimidated by a Co-Op? Don’t Be. Buying into a housing cooperative is similar to purchasing a condo Ownership So your dream home happens to be in a co-op building? Don’t panic. Housing cooperatives, commonly known as co-ops, where residents collectively own their building as opposed to owning an individual

unit, may be a bit of a mystery to renters and Realtors, but buying into one isn’t much different from buying a condo. Washington apartments began converting to co-ops in 1920, and today there are more than 100 market-rate co-ops in the city, ranging from as small as four units to as large as 500, according to the DC Cooperative Housing Coalition. There are also limited equity co-ops, which are usually cheap-

er, with different ownership rules. While New York City is the co-op capital of the country, D.C. has one of the highest concentrations of them, with co-ops spread from Dupont to the Southwest Waterfront, plus a few outside the District in Maryland and Virginia.

How Is It Different From a Condo? The main differences between coops and condos are the ownership

structure, fees, taxes and application process. Unlike condos, where you directly buy and own a single unit, in a co-op, residents buy a share in the corporation that owns the building. Some co-ops issue a share of stock and a proprietary lease, while others issue an ownership contract. Real estate taxes are assessed on the entire cooperative, not individual units, so co-op real estate taxes may be a little lower than condo taxes. Residents pay their share of the real estate tax as part of monthly co-op fees, unlike condo real estate taxes, which are paid separately by the owner. “The biggest misconception people have [about co-ops] is that the fees are really high,” says Ann

What Are My Options? Co-ops range from high-rise apartment buildings to gardenstyle apartments, town houses or even detached houses, and prices are pretty comparable to condos or town homes of similar size and quality. “An identical co-op and an identical condo probably sell for the same price,” says Mike O’Dell, a director at the DC Cooperative Housing Coalition and an owner at the Harbour Square co-op at the Southwest Waterfront (500 N St. SW, 202-554-3314). At Harbour Square, a one-bedroom co-op runs about $250,000, while one-bedroom condos in the area range in price from the low to mid-$200,000s.

Is There a Grueling Application? When applying for a co-op, buyers need to provide financial information, employment verification, a credit report and letters of Continued on page 20

On any given afternoon, you could find a new suit at Banana Republic, taste some wine at Grape + Bean, and then stroll down the red-brick sidewalk to the market square to hear the town crier call out a new proclamation.

Old Town is composed predominantly of town homes and rowhouses — many dating back to the 18th century. Location matters here. A fixerupper two-bedroom rowhouse in the serene southeast part of town, close to the Potomac and the popular Windmill Hill Park, could be listed in the high $700,000s. A similar home located on the southwest corner, nearer to US-1, could cost around $500,000. You can get the most for your money in the northwest part of town (north of King Street and west of Washington Street), where old buildings are being replaced with new condos, town homes and shops, says Susan Anthony, a Realtor with McEnearney Associates.

Getting Around Both the King Street and Braddock Road Metro stations (Blue/Yellow lines) are located on the west end of town, about a mile away from the Potomac. To get from the King Street Metro to the waterfront, pick up the free King Street Trolley, which runs every 15 minutes from 11:30 a.m. to 10:15 p.m. The Dash Bus is also available to connect to Metrobus, Metrorail and the Virginia Rail Express.

While the interview may be a turn-off for some, it’s nothing to worry about, O’Dell says. “Ours is more of an orientation,” he says. “We talk about … what they should expect, what we expect.” At The Presidential co-op in Dupont Circle (1026 16th St. NW, presidentialcoop.org), the interview is more of a formality, says Scott Osberg, a resident and former secretary of the co-op’s board.

Can I Rent It Out? Co-ops also often have restrictions on whether you can rent out your unit, and for how long, and the board usually has to approve the request. Some co-ops limit how long the unit can be rented for — say for up to two years — or the total number of units in the co-op that can

be rented at the same time. At Harbour Square, co-ops can’t be rented out for the first two years you live there, and you then can only rent the unit for up to three years, O’Dell says. At The Presidential, only about six of the approximately 40 units are currently rented, Osberg says. The goal is to keep the units mostly occupied by owners, who have a stronger sense of responsibility to the community. “The focus of co-ops is really home ownership and personal ownership, not investment,” O’Dell says.

What’s the Vibe Like? Most co-op buildings offer a range of amenities and events for residents, contributing to a community feel. Harbour Square residents enjoy such amenities as a club room, library, business center, 24-hourgym, indoor car wash and a yearround indoor swimming pool that overlooks the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool. Of course, co-ops have the same drawbacks as any small, self-governing association, like a condo association. But with a good board and good management, disagreements are easily overcome, O’Dell says. “Cooperatives are a great way of owning,” O’Dell says. “I don’t know why we don’t have more of them.” ERIN BYL ANDER (FOR E XPRESS)

Sports Rangers head to D.C. with new coach and an up-tempo system Capitals For nearly five seasons, the Capitals waged countless battles against John Tortorella’s Rangers, a hardnosed unit that put defense and self-sacrifice above all else. New York, however, grew tired of Tortorella’s abrasive approach, firing him in May and hiring former Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault in his place. Tonight, the Capitals will get their first look at Vigneault’s up-tempo, offensefriendly system. “I’m excited to see what their new style is like,” Caps defenseman Karl Alzner said. “It’s always really frustrating playing against them because as D, you can never

get a puck through.” Compared to Tortorella’s style of play, Vigneault’s relies less on blocking shots and jamming passing lines and more on creating oddman opportunities by having the defensemen join the rush. In theory, it is designed to provide New York’s offensive players with freedom they did not have previously. The Rangers’ transition is not without its growing pains. They enter today’s game — the sixth in a season-opening nine-game road trip — at 1-4-0, allowing a leaguehigh five goals per game, while scoring just 1.8 per game, tied for third-fewest. It is an adjustment that the Capitals are all too familiar with, hav-

ing gone through a similar change last season under Adam Oates. “On paper, they’ve got a great team and they should be able to figure it out and string a few more wins together,” Alzner said. “There’s something internally or there’s something — maybe they know they have a good team and they’re just kind of waiting for it to come, and we know what it’s like. It’s very frustrating.” Alzner said Tuesday that the Rangers might still have Tortorella’s message ingrained in them, so while he may be gone, their industrious mentality endures. “We k now t hat t hey work hard,” Caps defenseman Mike Green said. “I know the players over there. ... They all work hard and are competitors. If that’s what they have, they’re still going to play good hockey.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Rival Gets a Makeover

Coach Randy Edsall and the Terps didn’t force a turnover in the past two games.

Turnover Margin Starts To Turn Against Terps College Football Compared with last season, when the Maryland football team recorded only 20 takeaways, the Terrapins were turnover-producing machines over their first four games this season, forcing 15 turnovers. Since then? Zero. “We practice it every day just like we were in the first four games, we just haven’t gotten any in the last two,” coach Randy Edsall said. More concerning is that in six games, Maryland has fumbled 16 times and lost 10, putting it on pace for one more (32) than its mark last season (31 fumbles, 18 lost). Better competition has been a factor. Maryland feasted on Florida International, Old Dominion, Connecticut and West Virginia, four teams with three combined wins against Football Bowl Subdivision teams this season and an aggregate turnover margin of minus-one. Florida State, however, ranks

-4

Maryland’s turnover margin over the past two games against Florida St. and Virginia. The Terps had three fumbles lost last weekend.

among the top 25 teams nationally in turnover margin (plus-four) and Virginia quarterback David Watford delivered what coach Mike London later called “his best game to date” on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. But with a pass rush depleted by injury and a bend-but-not-break defense showing up against the Cavaliers, the Terps’ takeaway rate seems to have plateaued. “Sometimes people take care of the ball, but you have to get pressure to get errant throws,” Edsall said. “I thought the quarterback from Virginia played a much better game from what we had seen from film on him.” ALE X PREWIT T (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Extra Charges or Contracts

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has three interceptions this season, including one he returned for a touchdown.

Corner: Position of Need In pass-happy NFL, shut-down defenders are now must-haves NFL Darrell Green is not impressed. The Hall of Famer looks around today’s NFL and sees a lack of talent at his old job. “When it is most needed, in my opinion, the cornerback position is probably producing at its lowest level,� Green said. “Guys like myself and Deion Sanders and Mike Haynes — this is the time when we would be saying, ‘Yes! This is great! We want you to pass.’ � Seattle’s Richard Sherman, Tampa Bay’s Darrelle Revis and

25

Interceptions returned for TDs this season, putting the league on pace for 70, one fewer than last season, which had the most since the NFL expanded to 16 games in 1978, STATS said.

Denver’s Champ Bailey think that way, too, making lock-down cornerbacks must-haves nowadays. With quarterbacks inging the football around like never before, those back-end guys get more chances to ourish or fail. Still, as Green points out, special ones are rare. Through Week 6, quarterbacks averaged a passer rating of 81 when targeting players covered by cornerbacks,

Behind the Scenes With Wade

Dwyane Wade is giving fans an inside look at his journey to a third championship. Wade is posting a short film on his website next week, with a sneak preview scheduled to come out today. The video features the Heat guard explaining some of what he went through while battling injuries last season, along with never-before-seen footage of his workouts and a sparring session that he and LeBron James endured before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. “I think it’s going to give people a different perspective on what it all meant to me,� Wade said. (AP)

higher than in any season since at least 1995, according to STATS. “This generation, they’re behind the eight ball, because these offenses and quarterbacks are incredible,� said Green, who played for the Washington Redskins from 1983 to 2002. “Better cornerbacks would make defenses better.� Games are averaging 45.90 points in 2013, which would be the secondmost in NFL history (the record is 46.48 in 1948). The 289 TD passes are the most ever through Week 6, an average of 3.14 per game that would be the highest in the Super Bowl era. “If you keep getting that passing game going more and more, you’re going to keep seeing how important it is to have good corners,� Bailey said.

The Toast of the Town

On-the-Ball Humor The Bentzen Ball offered not one but two chances to hear Tig Notaro, above, talk about poop. The comedian, who curated the D.C. comedy festival along with Brightest Young Things, was billed on only one show, but I caught her performing all four nights. Her opening- and closing-night performances were bookended by discussions of bodily functions. First, during a masterful headlining set at the 9:30 Club on Thursday, Notaro By Rudi plucked a woman Greenberg from the crowd and asked her to spell diarrhea (and use it in a sentence) in front of 1,200 people. The joke: Imagine if you flashforwarded to this moment a few years ago, saw a brief glimpse of yourself saying diarrhea in a nightclub, and couldn’t ask any questions about it. Then, as the surprise co-host at Ira Glass’ closing show Sunday at the Lincoln Theatre, the pair discussed a David Sedaris story that didn’t make it onto “This American Life” because it was about him discovering something left unflushed at a party. Notaro, ever the quick wit, came up with an idea for a podcast: “Turd Talk With Tig and Ira.” This was the perfect kind of smart/ stupid humor on display at the second iteration of the Bentzen Ball. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.

Eugene Mirman’s tour is named after an imaginary sandwich. It’s already funny.

“It would probably be some type of banh mi with … shrimp and pate and maybe spicy grilled chicken.”

Comedy Eugene Mirman used to wonder how bands named their tours. Then he started booking his own comedy tours and realized it wasn’t exactly science. “I know now that it is a series of suggestions of which one is chosen as a favorite,” says the Brooklyn-based stand-up. So, if you’re curious as to why his run of dates with friends Kristen Schaal (“Flight of the Conchords”) and John Hodgman (resident deranged millionaire of “The Daily Show”) is called the MirmanHodgmanSchaal Sandwich-To-Go Tour, there you go. “Someone was like, ‘We can put them all in a sandwich.’ And who doesn’t want to go see a sandwich like that?” The tour, which stops at the Lisner Auditorium tonight, comes just a few weeks after Mirman finished his annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival in Brooklyn, a month after he wrapped up a comedy cruise and in the midst of the fourth season of Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers,” in which both Mirman and Schaal voice characters. How was the Atlantic Ocean Comedy and Music Festival cruise?

I’d never been on a cruise. I’ve been on boats, but I’ve never been on a boat where dinner is always at 6:30 p.m. and there’s a cup you have to buy to access club soda. It was weird but fine. I think that’s literally the boat’s tagline: “Weird but Fine.” So, comedy at sea: Yay or nay?

Album Review

How to Sweet-Talk a Shark

The general knock against Paul McCartney’s body of work as a solo artist, particularly as contrasted with that of his former Beatles partner John Lennon, is that it is heedlessly sentimental, littered with trivialities that amount to so much musical doodling. Through the years, Macca has engaged these charges, most wittily — and tunefully — with “Si l ly L ove Songs,” his chart-topping 1976 hit with Wings. But nothing has refuted them more eloquently than his latest studio album, “New.” McCartney’s first full set of original material in six years was made with four producers, each of whom has succeeded in challenging him and getting him to take risks. Several of the record’s tracks feature interludes that update the analog loops and effects heard on Beatles touchstones such as “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Revolver” for the digital age. “Road” evokes the ethereal electronica of the French duo Air, while the shuffl ing, new-wavey funk of “Appreciate” reminds us of what Prince gleaned from the Fab Four, even as it reveals a debt to hip-hop. “Save Us,” the record’s leadoff track, juxtaposes buoyant Beatlesstyle harmonies with the nervy rhythms and brittle electric sheen of latter-day garage punk. The orchestral opening of “Queenie Eye,” meanwhile, gives way to a

‘Goldfinch’ Soars, Sings Donna Tartt’s new novel is a smart thriller that shows her range as a writer

Donna Tartt’s long-awaited new novel, “The Goldfinch,” is an outand-out dazzler, a thrilling reminder of how intellectually stimulating first-rate storytelling can be. Populated by orphans, crooks and fragile beauties, the book is propelled by a narrative verve that compares to Dickens. The narrator is Theo Decker, whose world is blown apart one showery morning at 13 as he and his mother seek shelter in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Theo doesn’t want to be there. He’s more captivated by a skinny red-haired girl carrying a flute case

In Las Vegas, where he eventually goes to live with his shifty father in a house so bleak he leaves the closet door open to lessen the emptiness, he nearly gasps with pleasure when he unpacks the painting: “The atmosphere it breathed was like the light-rinsed airiness of a wall opposite an open window.” The story loiters in Vegas for a good chunk of time, and Theo falls in with a wild Russian kid and spins downward in a trippy spiral of neglect. Again and again he makes choices he knows are wrong, nurturing a dark, drug-addled nihilism. Yet this is a novel through which guardian angels flit. It is many books in one: a noir thriller and an epic love story, a philosophical inquiry into art, and a brooding meditation on the uselessness of being true to one’s self when that self is significantly flawed.

Get Your Liz, Lindsay-Free Helena Bonham Carter channels the film star in ‘Burton and Taylor’ TV Preview The made-for-television movie “Burton and Taylor” (9 p.m. tonight on BBC America) revisits Richard Burton (Dominic West, “The Wire”) and Elizabeth Taylor (Helena Bonham Carter, “The King’s Speech”) during the tail end of the third act of their star-crossed tabloid relationship. Already married to and divorced from each other twice, Burton and Taylor agree to appear on Broadway in Noel Coward’s “Private Lives” in the fall of 1982. The production quickly sells out. After all, staging a play about a divorced couple who

meet while on honeymoon with their other, less sensational spouses is the perfect vehicle for the world’s most scandalous twosome. Burton appears to be doing it for the money. Taylor may want more out of their gimmicky re-coupling.

The writers were smart to focus on a specific time in their subjects’ private and public lives. It doesn’t traipse through the couple’s entire story, like Lifetime’s recent Lindsay Lohan fiasco. Bonham Carter feasts on her character. She never overtly imitates Taylor but inhabits her imperious vulnerability all the same. She does an impressive job of capturing all of Taylor’s contradictions. She’s forever in charge, yet always on the verge of collapse. She’s needy, yet strategically manipulative. “Burton and Taylor” is hardly great, though West does his best playing an ailing lion in winter (Burton would die not long after). The movie is really a frame for Bonham Carter’s tour-de-force portrayal. KEVIN McDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)
