Akin’s Words Continue to Dog GOP <WY[#E\\_d 7h_p$Fh_cWho Newly elected Arizona Rep. Ron Barber, above, who replaced Gabrielle Giffords, will face two-term state Rep. Matt Heinz in a Democratic primary Tuesday.
C[Wdm^_b[¾ President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are locked in a close race to amass the requisite 270 Electoral College votes for victory. The contest is exactly where it was at the start of summer: focused on seven states that are up for grabs. Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire and Virginia offer a combined 85 electoral votes. An Associated Press analysis found that if the election were held Sunday, Obama would have 19 states and D.C., offering 247 votes, in his column or leaning his way, while Romney would have 24 states with 206 votes. (AP)
The 2012 Paralympics start Wednesday with Opening Ceremonies in London, kicking off 11 days of competition for the world’s physically and mentally challenged athletes.
Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama’s campaign of trying to link him to Rep. Todd Akin’s statements about rape and abortion, calling that a sad new low in the bitter election race while conceding that controversy over the remarks is hurting the Republican Party. Railing about a Democratic campaign they cast as harshly negative — as the Democrats say about the GOP — Romney and Republicans sought to reach out to female voters and Hispanics, two voting blocs that polls show favor Obama. Top Republicans said it was crucial that the party broaden its appeal for the November election and for longerterm political viability. The comments by Akin, the GOP Missouri Senate candidate who said women’s bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy from a “legitimate” rape, continue to dog the GOP. Asked in an interview, recorded earlier, on “Fox News Sunday” about Obama campaign efforts to link Akin’s remarks to Romney and other Republicans, Romney said: “It really is sad, isn’t it, with all the issues that America faces for the Obama campaign to continue

Jeb Bush had a similar message about Hispanic voters, saying Sunday on NBC that, “Gov. Romney can make inroads if he focuses on how do we create a climate of job creation and economic growth.” (AP)
to stoop to such a low level.” Obama hasn’t explicitly linked Romney to Akin, but he said in an interview Thursday that the GOP candidate has locked himself into “extreme positions” on economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected president. In a Web ad, however, the Democratic National Committee spliced together images of Romney and running mate Paul Ryan; Akin’s interview in which he made the comments; and various news reports, with the question, “Where does the GOP stand on the issue of women’s health?” The ad’s ﬁnal image is the Romney-Ryan campaign logo with Akin’s name added.

Armstrong’s Small Step A Big Leap for Humanity Astronaut, first man to walk on the moon died Saturday at 82 MWi^_d]jed When man first harnessed fire, no one recorded it. When the Wright Brothers showed man could fly, only a handful of people witnessed it. But when Neil Armstrong took that first small step on the moon in July 1969, an entire globe watched in grainy black-and-white from a quarter million miles away. We saw it. We were part of it. He took that “giant leap for mankind” for us. Although more than half of the world’s population wasn’t alive then, it was an event that changed and expanded the globe. “It’s a human achievement that will be remembered forever,” said John Logsdon, professor emeritus of space policy at George Washington University. Those ﬁrst steps were beamed to nearly every country around the world, thanks to a recently launched satellite. It was truly the ﬁrst global mass media event, Logsdon said. An estimated 600 million people — 1 out of every 5 on the planet — watched. The two historical events like-
Apollo 11 — and Neil Armstrong — landed on the moon July 20, 1969.
ÇM^[d?j^_dae\ D[_b"?j^_dae\ iec[ed[m^e\eh ekhYekdjhomWi Z[Z_YWj[Z[dek]^ jeZWhh[Wjbo$È — JOHN GLENN, SPEAKING SATURDAY ABOUT THE DEATH OF HIS CLOSE FRIEND AND SPACE PIONEER NEIL ARMSTRONG
ly to be long remembered from the 20th century are the moon landing and the ﬁrst atomic bomb, said Smithsonian Institution space curator Roger Launius. “There is no way to overestimate that signiﬁcance in human history, and he is forever linked to that,” Launius said of Armstrong, who died Saturday at age 82. Since the 1969 mission, there’s been a common phrase: “If we can send a man to the moon, why can’t we ... ?” with the blank ﬁlled with a task that seems far less difﬁcult. Armstrong’s small step was that leap in conﬁdence telling the world “if we can do this, we can do anything,” said Howard McCurdy, a professor of space and public policy at American University and author of the book “Space and the American Imagination.”
C_igkej[Z Neil Armstrong said immediately after the 1969 moon landing that his now-famous statement had been misquoted. He said he actually said, “That’s one small step for ‘a’ man.” It’s just that people didn’t hear it. “The ‘a’ was intended,” Armstrong said later. “I thought I said it. I can’t hear it when I listen on the radio reception here on Earth, so I’ll be happy if you just put it in parentheses.” (AP)
The Apollo 11 moon landing was the finish line in a decadelong space race started by the Soviet Union. And so the ﬁrst steps on the moon coming from an American civilian had many meanings. Getting there ﬁrst showed American technological superiority, but Armstrong mentioned mankind — not Americans — demonstrating that this was a moment for the people of Earth, McCurdy said. “He took something that 20 years earlier was pure fantasy and turned it into reality and if we could do that for space we could do it for anything,” McCurdy said.

If you’re happy with your dentures, don’t read this!
The ClearChoice team of specialists provides 21st century solutions to people struggling with dentures or bad teeth.
WHY SUFFER WITH DENTURES? For centuries, removable false teeth, or dentures, have been used to replace missing teeth. But denture-wearers report that many undesirable side effects come along with this less-than-ideal solution: Dentures are uncomfortable to wear and often slip or click; they can cause bad breath, and require ongoing and inconvenient maintenance; they often result in a weak bite, a fake-looking smile and an overly active gagging reﬂex. Care and comfort aside, those with dentures also are prevented from eating many of the foods and participating in many of the activities they enjoy. With today’s science, there’s simply no reason for anyone to struggle with dentures. In fact, many of the problems denture wearers struggle with can be solved in just one day* with the help of your ClearChoice team of dental implant professionals.
Denture wearers tend to struggle with: • Shame or embarrassment when smiling • Feeling limited in social situations • Maintaining a fully active lifestyle • Appearing older due to bone loss • Health issues related to their teeth
THE SOLUTION IS DENTAL IMPLANTS. Dental implants provide far better results than do dentures, because implants can prevent potential bone loss. Because they’re anchored into the jawbone, the fusion of the implant and bone provides stability, just as the natural teeth did. Implants perform and are cared for just like natural teeth! If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dental implants can stimulate the bone, protect against atrophy and help preserve your natural facial features.
I had friends who had dentures, so knowing what they had to deal with, I just refused to go down that road. ClearChoice was absolutely the best option for me! — James, ClearChoice patient
Unlike dentures, dental implants are ﬁxed in place, perform like your natural teeth, and can last a lifetime! CHOOSE A BETTER LIFE TODAY. Most people who choose dental implants report the decision to be life changing. Not only do dental implants look great and boost your conﬁdence, but they can also restore you to the active lifestyle you’ve been missing. Swim, ski, laugh and sing. Give business presentations. Eat what you like. Do it all without worrying about how your smile looks, or that your teeth will slip or fall out!
WHY TRUST CLEARCHOICE? In addition to being the No. 1 provider of dental implants, ClearChoice has industry-leading customer satisfaction and success rates. In fact, an independent study† of thousands of patients showed that those who chose ClearChoice would overwhelmingly recommend ClearChoice to others.

New Massacre Reported in Syria Dozens of bloodied bodies were buried Sunday in mass graves in a Damascus suburb where activists claim more than 300 people have been killed over the past week in a major government offensive to take back control of rebel-held areas in and around the capital. The British-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 32 more dead bodies were found in the streets of Daraya on Sunday and that they had been killed by “gunﬁre and summary executions.” It put the toll for the past week at approximately 320.

Officials: 202 NATO Bases Shuttered in Afghanistan AWXkb"7\]^Wd_ijWd
NATO has closed more than 200 bases in Afghanistan and transferred nearly 300 others to local forces, a concrete step toward its 2014 target of handing over security responsibility, NATO officers said Sunday. All 202 closed facilities were small, ranging from isolated checkpoints to bases of a dozen to 300 soldiers, a NATO spokesman said. That means international forces operate about half as many bases in Afghanistan as in October 2011, when they ran about 800 bases.

Seventy-ﬁve of the defendants received suspended one-year sentences, while one defendant tried in absentia was given a ﬁve-year prison term. The court listed eight charges, including “an assault against diplomatic missions” and “sabotage.” In September, thousands of protesters tore down a security wall around a high rise building housing the Israeli Embassy in Cairo and then trashed its ofﬁces. The embassy’s storming followed the killing of six Egyptian soldiers by Israeli troops who were pursuing Palestinian militants.

Tampa-St. Petersburg is the biggest swing area in the biggest swing state in the country. Florida is worth 29 electoral votes, and the two counties surrounding Tampa â€” Pinellas and Hillsborough â€” are two of just four counties in Florida that flipped from Republican to Democrat between the 2004 and 2008 presidential races. Tampa is also at the west end of the Interstate 4 corridor to Orlando. This area has struggled to recover economically from the recession, making it prime for Republicans to pick up voters. If thereâ€™s one area in the U.S. where Republicans need to perform, it might be the I-4 corridor. (T WP)
and convention events were slated to resume Tuesday. â€œWe are 100 percent full steam ahead on Tuesday,â€? RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said Sunday on CNNâ€™s â€œState of the Union.â€? Florida Gov. Rick Scott said the state was prepared for the storm and the convention. â€œWe do hurricanes well and we do hospitality well, and this week weâ€™ve got to show both sides,â€? Scott said. Democrats, who had planned a strong counteroffensive, have scrapped some plans, too, and Vice President Joe Biden postponed plans to campaign in Florida.
In 2008, Republicans had to cancel a day of events in St. Paul as Hurricane Gustav headed toward landfall in the Gulf, and with Republicans scrambling in the days before Mitt Romney is set to ofďŹ cially become his partyâ€™s nominee, scrutiny has fallen on the selection committee and former RNC chairman Michael Steele for picking Florida, a state prone to severe weather. Romney had been trying to build on the momentum following the largely successful rollout of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate. But his task of winning over moderate voters became more challenging last week as Rep. Todd Akinâ€™s comments on â€œlegitimate rapeâ€? highlighted the more extreme views within the GOP. Romneyâ€™s advisers have planned an elaborate convention aimed at presenting him as a successful businessman and compassionate family man. Cindy Costa, a South Carolina delegate, chose to look on the bright side of the conventionâ€™s delay. â€œThereâ€™s just so much hype around the storm, and in ways, it could be good for us because all eyes are on Florida now,â€? Costa said. â€œYou have to look at the silver lining.â€? NIA-MALIK A HENDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Ron Paul also rallied Sunday at the University of South Florida Sun Dome in Tampa, where the Texas congressman lashed out at Republican efforts to marginalize his supporters at the convention, telling his rally-goers to stand firm because â€œwe will become the tent eventually.â€?

:$9$je:[doDWjiH[gk[ij City does not plan to pay to keep Metro open after late games District officials said Thursday they plan to rebuff a request from the Washington Nationals that the city provide “additional Metro services” for the team’s fans. Team representatives made the request during a July 31 meeting with city ofﬁcials — three weeks before last Monday’s game, after which dozens of fans were stranded at Nationals Park after the last trains stopped running hours before the end of the 13-inning contest. WTOP ﬁrst reported the Nationals’ request Thursday, quoting City Administrator Allen Lew as saying city-funded Metro service was on the team’s “wish list.” Lew declined to speak to The Washington Post, but his spokesman, Tony Robinson, conﬁrmed the team requested to discuss “additional Metro services” at the July meeting. The request for city help with Metro costs rekindles a debate over who should bear the nearly $30,000-per-hour cost of keeping the rail system open when sports games and other major events end after normal operating hours. Paying to extend Metro hours has been of questionable cost-effectiveness during more woeful times for the team; for one April 2009 game, the city paid about $40,000 to keep trains running an additional 90 minutes to serve 16 passengers — about $2,500 a passenger. But with stadium seats increasingly occupied as the Nationals make their run for the playoffs, both fans and city officials are
When Nationals games run late, fans have to choose: Leave early or miss Metro?
8WYaijeho When the team first moved to the District in 2005, the city paid to keep Metro open during lateending games, which typically happens fewer than a half dozen times during the 81-game baseball season. But in recent years, as the city faced budget pressures, it stopped paying for the extra service. (T WP)
questioning why the team won’t pony up — a team that 18 months ago agreed to spend $126 million on a right ﬁelder. D.C. Council member Jack Evans, D-Ward 2, who is a season ticket holder, noted that both the Capitals and Redskins have arranged with Metro to continue service in case of late games. That includes making a $29,500 deposit, which can be reimbursed
according to the amount of passenger revenue generated during the extended hours. “All the professional teams are doing this, so I think the Nationals at this stage should have to do this,” Evans said. The new attention on Metro costs also threatens to reawaken grumbling rooted in the city’s $770 million in spending on Nationals Park and its environs. Subsequent lease negotiations left many in government feeling team ownership was ungrateful for the taxpayers’ massive investment. Council member David Catania, I-At Large, who opposed the stadium deal, said he would welcome a “reasonable discussion” of how the city can help the team succeed. But he said the suggestion that the District pay for Metro costs is “quite extraordinary.” MIKE DEBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Owner of Anacostia restaurant admits to drug trafﬁcking MWi^_d]jed The story of Uniontown will not have a happy ending. The Anacostia restaurant that many saw as a spark that could ignite a rebirth of Historic Anacostia was evicted Friday from its corner space on Martin Luther King Avenue SE. Uniontown’s recent closure comes less than a year after owner Natasha Dasher was implicated in a drug trafﬁcking scheme that federal agents said sent 65 kilo-
grams of cocaine and $1.5 million in cash from Texas to Prince George’s County. The charges put a damper on what had been a widely touted and outwardly successful enterprise in the economically depressed neighborhood. In April, the company owning the restaurant was sued in D.C. Superior Court for more than $18,000 in unpaid rent. In what appears to be coincidental timing, court records indicate Dasher, 37, pleaded guilty in Houston on Thursday to a pair of federal felonies related to the drug trafﬁcking case — possession with intent to distribute cocaine and a related conspiracy charge.

Now Anacostia residents are left to wonder what’s next for their neighborhood, which has seen increased investment from home-

Charles Wilson, president of the Historic Anacostia Block Association, said Uniontown’s closure shouldn’t discourage entrepreneurs looking to do business in the area. “It didn’t succeed not because the demand wasn’t there,” Wilson said. “The demand was there. Once that whole drug bust happened, people just got turned off.” Wilson said he was “disappointed but not heartbroken” over the whole thing: “I’m just really hoping that some young, black professionals really, really take a sincere interest in Anacostia.” MIKE DEBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Feed Fido Without Going Broke Don’t let dog food take too big of a bite out of your budget F[hiedWb<_dWdY[ We Americans have always loved our dogs, but a dog has never had it this good. The average cost of man’s best friend is somewhere between $10,000 and $14,000 over the course of its life, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Consumer Reports says Americans spend $20 billion on cat and dog food annually, making it the biggest expense. The cost adds up quickly, and yet many people don’t factor in how pricey it will be. According to a 2011 Consumer Reports study, dog food can average $36 a month. But you can save money on this expense if you’re using coupons, buying in bulk or, most important, buying less-expensive dog food. Here’s what you can save over the course of your dog’s life if you budget his or her meals well:
Fh_Y[9ecfWh_ied0:ho:e]<eeZ The Washington Post compared three leading brands of dry dog food: Ol’ Roy, Pedigree and Beneful. Using the prices found at the time of publication and a hypothetical consumption of 2 cups of dry food a day, here’s how much a year of dog food varies by brand. (Note: To get the most accurate conversion rates, one would need to measure out cups in the bags of dog food, which are measured in pounds. The Post did not do this and instead assumed that 4 cups of dog food equal 1 pound.) (T WP)
EbÊHeo>_]^ F[h\ehcWdY[ One 50-pound bag costs $23.88 at Wal-Mart (at the time this piece was written). That will yield approximately 200 cups of dry food, because a pound of dog food roughly translates to 4 cups. For 2 cups a day, you’ll need about four bags of Ol’ Roy each year. Annual total: About $95
F[Z_]h[[ BWh][8h[[Z Dkjh_j_ed
A 36-pound bag costs $20 at Wal-Mart. To feed your dog 2 cups a day, you’ll need five bags a year.
A 31-pound bag costs $24.60 at Wal-Mart and will give you about 124 cups of dog food, which works out to about six bags a year.
Annual total: About $100
Annual total: About $148
MWi^_d]jedFeij$Yec A comparison of canned dog food demonstrates how much more expensive wet food is.
Improve depressive symptoms faster?
AdemM^WjOekÊh[ FWo_d]<eh What separates premium dog food from regular, everyday nutritious food? Consumer Reports says there’s no legal definition for “premium” blends or strict requirements for nutritional quality. Although some pets have sensitive skin or dietary needs that require a certain food, most pets are fine with any blend that says “complete & balanced” or meets the minimum requirements of the Association of American Feed Control Officials. Don’t be afraid to ask your vet about less-expensive varieties that satisfy nutritional needs.
Fh_Y[iLWho Even when types of dog food don’t necessarily vary in nutritional content, there’s a wide range of prices among those that meet the minimum health requirements. According to Consumer Reports, Ol’ Roy sells for 34 cents a pound at WalMart. Purina Chef Michael’s Rotisserie Chicken flavor sells at PetSmart for $2.22 a pound — 6½ times more expensive than Ol’ Roy.
Pet food is an ongoing expense that you’re likely to have for a decade. Dogs are creatures of habit, eating what they’ve eaten before, so the foods you buy early in your dog’s life matter. Start your dog on store brands or moderately priced varieties. If you start them on the premium brands, they’re not going to willingly switch to lesser varieties.
8ko_d8kba<hec 8_]#8enIjeh[i Consumer Reports sent secret shoppers to 21 retailers and found that Target and Wal-Mart often have the lowest prices on dog food, while supermarkets and specialty pet stores — including such retailers as Petco and PetSmart — tend to have higher prices. Also, Costco and other warehouse clubs tend to have great deals on dog food.
:edÊjI^efEdb_d[ Consumer Reports also determined that prices online were much higher. Its 2011 study found that online sites were 50 percent higher, before shipping costs.

Phils Complete Sweep of Nats Nationals drop fourth straight; Strasburg up next in rotation If the Washington Nationals’ charmed season turns for the worse, a prospect still far off in the distance, remember the way it began: A ball clanged off a railing atop the right field fence at Citizens Bank Park, a home run turned into a live ball and an indefensible assumption by two veterans killed a rally. Pennant race baseball punishes negligence, and Sunday afternoon the Nationals were punished. As the team’s losing streak grew to four with its 4-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies, the dual gaffe of Jayson Werth and Adam LaRoche deﬁned the ﬁnal chapter of a sweep in Philadelphia. The Nationals’ only threat against dominating lefty Cliff Lee dissipated when they trotted around the bases after LaRoche’s drive to right, only to realize — as the Phillies were tagging out LaRoche and Werth moving up only one base — it had somehow bounded back into the playing ﬁeld. The Nationals still have the best record in the majors at 77-50. Panic remains an unnecessary recourse. But the sweep inspired the Nationals’ ﬁrst recent brush with worry. After a day off Monday, they will have a chance to snap out of it Tues-

O’s Punch Up Staff by Acquiring Saunders Fhe8Wi[XWbb Eager to bolster an inexperienced pitching staff during their first playoff run since 1997, the Baltimore Orioles obtained left-hander Joe Saunders on Sunday in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Baltimore gave Arizona righthanded reliever Matt Lindstrom and cash considerations or a player to be named later. Saunders is 6-10 with a 4.22 ERA in 21 starts with Arizona this season. He won 12 games last season while helping the Diamondbacks win their ﬁrst NL West title since 2007. Baltimore began the day tied for the second American League wild-card spot with Oakland and in third place in the AL East, only four games behind the divisionleading New York Yankees. “I like our ball club’s chances,” said Dan Duquette, the Orioles vice president of baseball operations. “There’s an old saying: If you’re going in the right direction, keep walking. So the addition of Joe Saunders gives us a chance to keep walking in the right direction.” DAVID GINSBURG (AP)

It’s important to note that the Indianapolis Colts’ defense is not of the caliber of the Chicago Bears’. But the line did do better this week than it did last week. One factor was the return of right guard Chris Chester. There were some early miscues — one that resulted in Griffin taking his hardest hit of the preseason. On that play, inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman came through between left tackle Trent Williams, above, and left guard Maurice Hurt untouched and drilled Griffin as he let go of the ball. The Redskins allowed only four hits on the quarterback all game.
Have the Redskins found their starter in Alfred Morris? Possibly. The rookie, above, runs hard and has a low center of gravity. He’s always driving forward and has a knack for spinning, twisting or falling forward rather than just taking what’s there and being stopped for little to no gain after contact. Tim Hightower may not be fully back to his old self — even now that he’s back playing in games, this year likely will feature an ongoing journey back — but he too was very effective against the Colts. A combination of the two could certainly get the job done for Washington.
The secondary didn’t have as bad an outing as it did against Chicago, but there were some miscues as the Colts’ quarterbacks passed for 298 yards and a touchdown. The most costly error came on the Colts’ lone first-half score. On the thirdand-6 31-yard touchdown pass from Colts QB Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton, a tiny snag by Madieu Williams, above, enabled Hilton to get a step on Williams, and Luck perfectly dropped the ball into his wideout’s hands in the end zone. Redskins defensive players wished they had that play back, but overall weren’t overly concerned.
Of all the positions on the defense, the Redskins have to feel the best about their linebacking corps. Even without Brian Orakpo, they were able to harass Luck at a good rate. The Redskins’ starters recorded 10 quarterback hits, and sacked him twice. Brian Orakpo has beaten the drum for his backup Rob Jackson, saying there is no dropoff between the two. Chris Wilson — battling for a roster spot — also did well in his time with the starters. Even once the starters left the game, Lorenzo Alexander, above, Bryan Kehl, Keenan Robinson and Markus White all made plays.
In his most extensive action of the preseason, Robert Griffin III, above, was much more effective. He completed 11 of 17 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. He also had a five-yard scamper for a first down. He did a better job of getting rid of the ball quickly. Another positive was how he responded to pressure when he got hit early in the game. Griffin shook off the licks and remained confident, saying he felt good about his performance and the growth shown in the preseason. “If we’re going to finish with this performance,” he said of the preseason, “this was a good way to finish it.”

‘Suri’s Burn Book,’ a parody of the pint-size starlet, offers snarky critiques of her peers 8eeai On July 11, 2011, Allie Hagan, a policy consultant at the Penn Hill Group in Washington, was indulging in her off-hours obsession: celebrity children. She’d o cc asionally say “snappy little things” about these kids — the Blue Iv ys and Apples and Shilohs of the world — on her Twitter page, dishing out one-liners in a tone that Hagan describes as “jokey, twinged with mean.” While chatting online with a friend, Hagan was debating the likability of
some celebrity spawn. “I love Suri so much,” she wrote of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s 6-yearold daughter. “I just don’t like any of those Jolie-Pitts.” Her friend said the Jolie-Pitts “are not very interesting.” Hagan’s reply: “Omgggg that is exactly the kind of thing I want to post — honest truths about these privileged children. LIKE THAT THEY ARE BORING.” Suri’s Burn Book was born. Named for the hot-pink tome that wrought so much wreckage on the popular Plastics clique in the 2004 ﬁlm “Mean Girls,” Suri’s Burn Book is a blog that Hagan, 25, writes from Suri’s perspective. She provides snarky, snobby criticism on Suri’s paparazzi-plagued peers. The blog is a self-proclaimed “study in Suri and the people who disappoint her.” The blog’s tagline: “Just because you don’t have a Ferragamo handbag
M_bbemIc_j^ Willow Smith is portrayed as Hagan-as-Suri’s most exhausting frenemy. The blog: “Willow Smith is just Rebecca Black with richer, more desperate parents.”
9hkp8[Ya^Wc “Suri” sees Cruz as “the one that got away” and probably her soul mate. She says, “If we got married, his name would’ve been Cruz Cruise. Don’t even pretend like that’s not how that would go down.” (T WP)
Ç?Êcdej]e_d]je YWbbiec[a_ZÊi \WY[ÔWj#ekjk]bo$ ?jhojecWa[_j WXekjYbej^[iWdZ X[^Wl_eh$È Hagan has ground rules: “I try not to make [it] about appearance. I’m not going to call some kid’s face ﬂat-out ugly. I try to make it about clothes and behavior.” When Cruise and Holmes got divorced, Hagan “was really scared” of posting something too harsh. “It’s easy to imagine [Suri] as this sassy little fashionista. But … at the end of the day … she’s a little girl whose parents are splitting up.” Although Hagan has no plans to quit her day job and “wouldn’t imagine [Suri’s Burn Book] is going to last forever,” she doesn’t see a reason to quit. Not when there’s the holy grail of celebrity baby events to look forward to: Prince William and Kate Middleton’s ﬁrst born. On the blog, Suri anticipates the birth with dread, panicked that she won’t be able to dominate her royal competition. “Suri is driving it, but Allie cannot wait,” Hagan says. “God, I hope they have a girl,” she says. “That’ll keep Suri’s Burn Book in business for a long time.” JESSICA GOLDSTEIN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

M_bZ"9hWpoÉIjob[Ê Korean rapper PSY finds success with unconventional flair Cki_Y Korean rapper PSY — who is having a pop culture moment with his viral music video for “Gangnam Style” — says he’s been doing funky choreography for a decade in his homeland. But he’s excited his colorful style is being celebrated in the U.S. and around the world. “I did a lot of strange dance
moves for 12 years in Korea,” PSY says of his road to stardom there. The 34-year-old, born Jae-Sang Park, writes and produces his own music. “Gangnam Style” is about the lavish lifestyle of the trendy Gangnam district in Seoul. PSY choreographed the routines in the clip. “In Korea, they’re celebrating me because I didn’t try anything,” he says. “I didn’t promote, I didn’t target anything … overseas. It just happened like this with YouTube and Twitter. … Those two feed me.” “Gangnam Style” appears on PSY’s sixth album, “PSY 6.” He
recently had a meeting with Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. The musician is ﬁnding success at a time when K-Pop, Korean pop music, is growing in America. But PSY says he doesn’t ﬁt the mold of most K-Pop artists. “There are standards, like skinny, muscular, handsome, pretty, tall, whatever, none [of which apply] to me,” he says. “Doing it not right is right,” he adds. “I was not suitable visually, musically, anything. I was not the standard.”
The music video for PSY’s “Gangnam Style” has garnered more than 60 million views on YouTube. The bright, vibrant clip finds the comedic and flamboyant PSY (with a bevy of backup dancers) doing bizarre choreography — including a horse-riding dance — while rapping and singing in Korean over a thumping beat. The only words he says in English are “Hey, sexy lady.” (AP)
Jerry Nelson, the puppeteer behind a delightful menagerie of characters including Count von Count on “Sesame Street” and Gobo Fraggle on “Fraggle Rock,” has died. He was 78. Nelson, who suffered from emphysema, died Thursday night in his Massachusetts home, Sesame Workshop said. “Every description of his characters describes Jerry as well,” said “Sesame Street” executive producer Carol-Lynn Parente. “Silly, funny, vulnerable, passionate and musical, for sure. That voice of his was superb.” Although he had been in declining health for some
time “his attitude was never bad,” Parente said. “He was always so grateful for what he had. “We’re having a rough day on the Street,” she added. In a tribute posted online by Sesame Workshop, Nelson was lauded for his artistry and the “laughter he brought to children worldwide” with the Count and other Muppets, including Sherlock Hemlock, Herry Monster and the Amazing Mumford. In recent years, Nelson gave up the job of operating the Count and other puppets on “Sesame Street” but still voiced the characters. The show’s new season launches in September, and Nelson’s voice will be heard. LYNN ELBER (AP)

Still Dancing World music trailblazers Dead Can Dance have been an elusive act to catch in the past decade. After splitting in 1998, members Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry have only reunited sporadically to tour. But earlier this month, the duo released their first album since 1996, “Anastasis,” which picks up where “Spiritchaser” left off.

HOW HE PROPOSED: During a surprise trip to the island of St. John.

I had to point out the ring.” PET NAMES: “I call her Sassy Pants Van Butterworth Hotstuff McGee, although I do not think she knows this.” MAKING IT UNIQUE: Instead of an aisle, Bryan will enter down a 15foot slide.

HOW HE PROPOSED: On the day after Christmas (their fifth anniversary). He hid the ring in her stocking. MOST STUPID FIGHT: Whether it’s
OK to buy something without a coupon. “She’s a bit of a professional coupon clipper.” PET NAMES: He’s “Prince Charming,” she’s the “Energy-Saving Fairy, because she walks around the apartment turning things off.” WEDDING JITTERS: “I’m wearing 6-inch-plus heels to make up for our height difference, so I pray I won’t fall and break my ankle while walking down the aisle or dancing.”

Fire destroyed an apartment building in Northwest D.C.’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood in ’08.

Times magazine cover, which features Venus and Serena Williams, adding that the two “have consistently won big and had tremendous staying power, two rarities in the world of tennis.”
“It’s been about four and a half years since the fire at 3145 Mount Pleasant Street. The economy tanked and I’ve read the development is slowed for other reasons as well, but frankly it’s an eye sore and a reminder of how the neighborhood has changed and faced challenges.” — ROBERT-WALTON.BLOGSPOT .COM was unhappy to see
— while taking a farmers market stroll Sunday — that the Mount Pleasant complex is still empty.

Institute story about the major coverage that Hurricane Irene received last August.
“This unique mix of suspense and surprise that pervades and, in my opinion, makes ‘There Will Be Blood’ awesome, seems, based on the trailer, to be present in ‘The Master’ as well. Here’s hoping that Paul Thomas Anderson has found some way to take this mixture and develop it one step further. If nothing else, at least we’ll have another awesome Jonny Greenwood score.” — THINKSOUL25.COM was intrigued
by the trailer for “The Master,” starring Joaquin Phoenix, above, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It is set for a Sept. 21 release.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may not be able to hide the emotions that a certain situation gives rise to at some point. Share what you are feeling with a loved one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may be feeling as though a part of your life is no longer as strong or reliable as it once was. Focus on what works! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Youâ€™re likely to be welcomed into new company by many who know just what you bring to the party. Your contribution is valued. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) There are those who prefer fighting to anything else at this time â€” but youâ€™re not fooled by their preference. Harmony is best for you! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may be changing the rules just a little to suit your own needs, and others may discover that those changes work for them as well.
<EKHH79AJEJ7B Make a 2-7 letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Youâ€™ll be sought out to take part in something new today because you have a knack for working quickly, and without much preparation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You must be willing to let another have the credit for his or her invaluable contribution to a project you have been leading.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may have to dig deep to come up with the right strategy to deal with someone who is willing to challenge you directly at this time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You and a rival may come face-to-face today, perhaps for the first time. What happens may affect others dramatically.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) The first part of any journey you take may be characterized by uncertainty. Youâ€™re not afraid of wrong turns, however.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can work quickly today, but you may not always work error-free. You must recognize your mistakes immediately, and correct them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Itâ€™s time for a little shameless self-promotion. If you miss out on this rare opportunity, youâ€™ll have a lot more work to do.
