Ariel Castro’s Suicide Brings Little Sympathy
Ariel Castro had been in a cell by himself in protective custody, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, over fears that his notoriety could lead to attacks from other inmates, authorities said. He was not on a suicide watch and officials would not say whether he left a suicide note. Castro had been on a suicide watch for a few weeks in the Ohio state prison before he pleaded guilty. Police said after his arrest that they had found a years-old note in which he talked about suicide. But authorities at the jail dropped the suicide watch in June after concluding he was unlikely to take his own life. (AP)
Cleveland kidnapper found hanging in prison cell by guards
TONY DEJAK (AP)
Cleveland Residents in the tough Cleveland neighborhood where three women were secretly imprisoned for a decade reacted with scorn and grim satisfaction Wednesday after Ariel Castro hanged himself in his cell barely a month into a life sentence. Even the prosecutor joined in. “This man couldn’t take, for even a month, a small portion of what he had dished out for more than a decade,” said Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty. Castro, 53, was found hanging from a bedsheet Tuesday night at the state prison in Orient, Ohio, corrections spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The coroner’s
Ariel Castro was in protective custody but not on suicide watch, officials said.
ofﬁce said it was suicide. “He took the coward’s way out,” said Elsie Cintron, who lived up the street from the former school bus driver. “We’re sad to hear that he’s dead, but … we’re happy he’s gone.” As the shocking news sank in, prison officials faced questions about how a high-proﬁle inmate managed to commit suicide while
in protective custody. Just a month ago, an Ohio death row inmate killed himself days before he was to be executed. Ohio prisons director Gary Mohr announced a review of Castro’s suicide and whether he had received proper medical and mental health care. State police are also investigating. The announcement
came after the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio called for a full investigation. Through a spokeswoman, Castro’s three victims — Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — declined to comment. Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to 937 counts in a deal to avoid the death penalty. At his sentencing, he told the judge: “I’m not a monster. I’m sick.” A N D R E W W E L S H - H U G G I N S A N D THOMAS J. SHEER AN (AP)

Teen Dead, More Hurt in High School Stabbing A fight inside a Houston-area high school escalated into a series of stabbings Wednesday that killed a 17-year-old student and wounded several others, sheriff’s officials said.

Parent Tara Campbell said her daughter said students snapped cellphone photos of the victims as they lay on the ground. (AP)
What Teens Want: A later start to the school day could help teenagers get the most from their classroom time and local districts should consider delaying the first bell, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday.

Mosquitoes vs. Humans
Drought, rain and heat in U.S. lead to more blood-suckers Washington
The tiny mosquito all too often has mankind on the run. And this summer seems even worse than usual. “You can’t get from the car to inside our house without getting attacked, it’s that bad,” high school teacher Ryan Miller said from his home in Arlington. Experts say it was a buggierthan-normal summer in many places around the U.S. because of a combination of drought, heavy rain and heat. Many communities ﬁght back by spraying pesticides, but mosquitoes are starting to win that battle, too, developing resistance to these chemicals. Soon, many plac-
It’s Not Over Yet If you think the start of September means the tapering off of mosquitoes in the D.C. area, think again. Mosquito-watch programs, including those of Maryland’s Department of Health and the City of Alexandria, will continue monitoring populations and testing them for West Nile virus through October. Blame the region’s extended warm climate for the long biting season. Higher temperatures compress the generation time, or how long it takes for mosquitoes to become adults, said Mike Raupp, a professor of entomology at the University of Maryland. (E XPRESS)
es could be out of effective weapons, experts said. Miller, who teaches environmental science, said he normally would oppose spraying but has been lobbying for the county to break out the pesticides this year. The county told him there was no money in the budget. Mosquitoes, of course, can be more than a nuisance: In the U.S.,
the biggest mosquito-borne threat is West Nile virus. Last year, there were a record 286 West Nile deaths, but this year appears to be milder. Worldwide, excluding the U.S., mosquito-borne diseases kill far more people than sharks, snakes and bears combined, with more than 600,000 deaths from malaria each year in poorer countries.

$280K Awarded in N-Word Rant Case New York The lawyer for a black woman whose hostile workplace claim against a black boss’s N-word rant produced a $280,000 jury award says she hopes the case teaches society something. “It’s the most offensive word in the English language,” attorney Marjorie Sharpe said outside federal court in Manhattan after a jury Tuesday added $30,000 in punitive damages to go with a $250,000 compensatory damages award it imposed last week against STRIVE East Harlem founder Rob Carmona. Sharpe’s client, 38-year-old Brandi Johnson, said she hopes the word now “won’t be tolerated no matter what your race is.” The case put a legal microscope
32 Years Paying Top Dollar
to the concept that the word that is a degrading slur when spoken by whites can be used without retribution and sometimes affectionately among blacks, even in the workplace. When Carmona, a 61-year-old black man of Puerto Rican descent, testiﬁed last week, he tried to defend his use of the word, saying it had “multiple contexts” in the black and Latino communities, sometimes indicating anger, sometimes love. In a statement, STRIVE said it was disappointed but was exploring options. A STRIVE executive testified Tuesday that the organization already has changed because of t he verd ic t w it h plans to provide its staff additional diversity, discrimination and anti-harassment training.

Obama Tries to Downplay Spying In visit, president tells Europeans: We aren’t reading your emails
Stockholm President Barack Obama sought Wednesday to reassure Europeans outraged over U.S. surveillance programs that his government isn’t sifting through their emails or eavesdropping on their telephone calls. He acknowledged that the programs haven’t always worked as intended, saying “we had to tighten them up.” Obama said U.S. surveillance programs that became public knowledge after a government contractor leaked details about them are meant to improve America’s understanding of what is happening around the world. He sought to allay the concerns of Europeans upset by the thought that their personal communications may have been swept up in the U.S. government’s data-collection operations. “I can give assurances to the publics in Europe and around the

Cut Egypt Aid, Obama Aides Say President’s advisers recommend drastic reduction in funding President Barack Obama’s top national security aides have recommended that the U.S. suspend hundreds of millions of dollars in military and economic assistance to Egypt in response to the Egyptian military’s ouster of the country’s ﬁrst democratically elected leader, U.S. ofﬁcials said Wednesday. Such a step would be a dramatic shift for an administration that has declined to label Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s July 3 ouster a coup and has argued that it is in U.S. national security interests to keep the aid ﬂowing. It would also likely have profound implications for the decades of close U.S.-Egyptian ties that have served

as a bulwark of security and stability in the Middle East. The ofﬁcials say the recommendation has been with Obama for at least a week, but they don’t expect him to make a decision until after Congress votes on his request for authorization for military strikes on Syria. The U.S. provides Egypt with $1.5 billion a year in aid, $1.3 bil-
lion of which is military assistance. While leaving the exact amount to be suspended up to the president, the principals have recommended that it include all military ﬁnancing to Egypt’s army except for money that supports security in the Sinai Peninsula and along its border with the Gaza Strip, the ofﬁcials said.

RESULTS FOR THE FULL POLL HAVE AN ERROR MARGIN OF PLUS OR MINUS 3.5 PERCENTAGE POINTS.
To many regular riders, Metro isn’t just a rail system with five colored lines, 86 stations and 100-plus miles of track running throughout the region. It is a lifeline to getting around the region, and each line has its own characteristics. A recent Washington Post poll of a random sample of roughly 1,100 local residents in D.C., Maryland and Virginia showed some similarities and differences in the makeup of who rides each of the Metro lines — the Red, Green, Blue and Orange. (The survey did not interview enough Yellow Line riders for reliable results.) Ridership patterns on Metro tend to reﬂect the demographics of the city. The Green Line, which runs along the eastern side of the District and into Prince George’s County, Md., has more AfricanAmerican riders on board. The Orange Line, which runs east to west from Northern Virginia, through D.C. and into Maryland, is the wealthiest, whitest and most well-educated, the poll found. Joshua Schank, an urban planner and president of Eno Center for Transportation, a think tank, said the survey results generally track with trends of who uses public transportation. Typically, the “more dense and sophisticated the transit network” in cities, such as Washington and New York, “the less of a disparity there is between transit and nontransit riders.” “In a place like Detroit, where there’s not congestion and you can drive and get [someplace] faster and park for nothing, people will do that,” he said. “But in D.C., where the cost of parking is $20 and trafﬁc is bad, more people from higher income brackets are going to take transit.”
BECAUSE OF SAMPLING ERROR, SOME DIFFERENCES ARE NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.

city’s top lawyer raised various legal concerns about the measure. Adam Eidinger, a veteran city activist and the leader of DCMJ 2014, told the D.C.

The initiative discussion comes as marijuana policy hits the D.C.

Last week, the U.S. Justice Department issued new guidance, saying that local marijuana laws that conﬂict with the federal ban should generally be respected unless they encroach on eight enforcement priorities.

Target opened its first D.C. store, above, in 2008 in Columbia Heights.
Target Eyeing Potential Locale in Downtown D.C. Washington Target is considering opening a store downtown in a space once occupied mainly by ESPN Zone. It would be Target’s second store in D.C., following its 2008 opening in Columbia Heights, and would continue the chain’s expansion into big cities. There is a hang-up, however. The building, 555 12th St. NW, is for sale. A new owner has not been named, and it isn’t clear whether whoever buys the building will want the red Target symbol stamped on the bottom of it. Michael Zacharia, a retail broker who represents the building’s current owners, acknowledged that he has been working for months on a deal to bring Target there. Multiple prospective buyers said the building was being marketed for sale as having a Target store lined

up as a possible tenant. Target issued a statement saying it “currently does not have any information to share.” Target has backed away from some other opportunities in D.C., and it’s hard to say what the chain’s reaction would be if the District’s proposed “living-wage” bill — which would require some big-box chains to pay $12.50 an hour instead of D.C.’s minimum wage of $8.25 — becomes law.

With or Without Congress Though angling for lawmakers’ support, Obama seems ready to act alone on Syria
ALEX WONG (GETTY IMAGES)
With Congress deep in debate over support for a military strike on Syria, President Barack Obama left open the possibility Wednesday that he would order retaliation for a purported chemical weapons attack even if the House and Senate withhold their approval. “As commander in chief, I always preserve the right and responsibility to act on behalf of America’s national security,” a traveling Obama said at a news conference in Sweden. In a challenge to lawmakers back home, he said Congress’ credibility was on the line, not his own, despite saying a year ago that the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line.” Just hours after his comments, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 10 to 7, with one member voting “present,” to approve using force against the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad in response to its reported use of chemical weapons against civilians. The Senate panel acted after top administration ofﬁcials pressed their case Wednesday for congressional approval of a U.S. military strike, even if lawmakers would support only a more limited authorization than the administration originally wanted. The vote marked the ﬁrst formal Congressional response to the president’s unexpected announcement last weekend that he was putting off an expected cruise missile strike and instead was ﬁrst asking lawmakers to unite behind such a plan. The resolution is expected to reach the Senate ﬂoor next week, although the timetable for a vote is uncertain. Sen. Rand Paul, R.-Ky., has threatened a ﬁlibuster. Obama’s request also received its
Secretary of State John Kerry testified before a House committee Wednesday, where he met resistance from protesters — and lawmakers.
A Russian Shift
A Varied Toll
Russian President Vladimir Putin is against one-sided action in Syria but also said Russia “doesn’t exclude” backing a U.N. resolution on military strikes if it is proved that Damascus used poison gas on its own people. Putin, however, demanded “precise evidence about who carried out this crime” before he will be swayed. (AP)
The death toll of 1,429 that the Obama administration is using to describe the alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack is far higher than confirmed counts by Britain and France and a main activist group, which said it was shocked by the U.S. figure, McClatchy News Service reports. French groups list tolls as low as 281. (E XPRESS)
U.S. officials said Wednesday that intelligence agencies did not detect the Syrian regime readying a chemical weapons attack before the strike, only piecing together information after the fact. That explains why the White House didn’t issue a warning as it had when detecting previous preparations for chemical strikes. (AP)
ﬁrst hearing in the House. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a public hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that more nations are supporting a U.S. strike against Syria than the Pentagon says are needed. He warned that if Congress fails to pass a resolution authorizing the use of force, the ability of the moderate Syrian opposition to restrain extremists will “dissipate immediately.” Kerry also disputed an assertion by Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, that “radical Islamists” now make up the “majority” of the Syrian rebel forces. Kerry said there are 70,000 to 100,000 “oppositionists” in Syria and that
15 to 25 percent might belong to groups deemed to be “bad guys” among the rebel forces. As he testiﬁed, protesters from the antiwar group Code Pink held up redstained hands in the audience in silent opposition to a U.S. strike. Rep. Edward Royce, R-Calif.,
the committee chairman, said proposed use-of-force resolutions in the House are “looking at a short time frame” for U.S. action, as on the Senate side. “It’s very clear on the House side that there is no support for boots on the ground,” Royce said. (AP/ THE WASHINGTON POST )
“Is the power of the executive branch so intoxicating that you have abandoned past caution?” — REP. JEFF DUNCA N, R-S.C., SAID SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY ADVOCATED FOR CAUTION IN PAST CONFLICTS. IN A TESTY EXCHANGE, KERRY RESPONDED WITH EXAMPLES OF HIS OWN MILITARY SERVICE AS WELL AS HIS SUPPORT OF PAST U.S. MILITARY ACTION AS A U.S. SENATOR.
Harry Truman went to war in Korea. Ronald Reagan bombed Libya and invaded Grenada. George H.W. Bush invaded Panama. Bill Clinton fired cruise missiles at Sudan and Afghanistan and sent troops to Haiti and bombers to Kosovo. Barack Obama bombed Libya. All were done without a congressional OK.
Go It Alone Obama’s “hands will be tied” if Congress votes against him on Syria, Temple University law professor Peter Spiro wrote on a law blog, saying that no president in recent history has requested approval “for anything less than the full-scale use of force.”
Seek Backup Others, such as Harvard Law professor Jack Goldsmith, have applauded Obama for seeking wider support “in light of the constitutional questions, the lack of obvious support in the nation and Congress, and the risks of sparking a broader conflict in the Middle East.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Pennetta, Gasquet Advance U.S. Open Flavia Pennetta knew her opponent’s game almost as well as she knows her own. She came out a winner Wednesday over Roberta Vinci in the most important meeting between the Italians in a friendship and rivalry that has lasted more than 20 years. Blunting Vinci’s net attacks, taking away her deft drop shots and preying on her nerves, Pennetta made it to her ﬁrst Grand Slam semiﬁnal and climbed back to the top of Italy’s competitive tennis ladder Wednesday with a 6-4, 6-1 win at the U.S. Open. After Pennetta’s win, eighthseeded Richard Gasquet got the ﬁrst spot in this year’s men’s semiﬁnals, defeating No. 4 David Ferrer 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3 in a match that ran 3 hours, 23 minutes. Gasquet made his second Grand Slam semiﬁnal, the only other coming at Wimbledon in 2007. EDDIE PELLS (AP)

Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones pulled in a deep pass over the outstretched arm of Broncos safety Rahim Moore with under a minute left in last year’s playoff game.
Back in a Familiar Place Ravens recall big win before season opener against the Broncos NFL Tonight, the Baltimore Ravens will step back inside the Denver Broncos’ Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium — the site where an improbable play helped propel the Ravens to a Super Bowl title. With under a minute remaining in last year’s divisional round playoff game against the Broncos, the Ravens were down seven and facing elimination. Quarterback Joe Flacco stepped up in the pocket and launched a pass deep down the right sideline, with receiver Jacoby Jones trailing
underneath it. Broncos safety Rahim Moore was responsible for the coverage over the top. Overcommitting on the play, Moore stumbled. The ball landed in Jones’ hands, with the receiver taking the 70-yard play into the end zone to tie the score at 35-35, sending the game into overtime. “I think Joe caught them in a certain coverage, put it up, and completion,” Jones said Sunday, recalling the play four days before the Ravens face the Broncos in the ﬁrst game of the 2013 NFL season. “It happened and it was a big one. It got us to the next level. I think [Moore] was trying to make a play, and we caught him slipping. They weren’t up for us. Bingo.” The momentum from the touch-

down carried over into two overtime periods, which saw the Ravens come away with a 38-35 win. Baltimore went on to win the AFC Championship and Super Bowl, capping an improbable postseason run after losing four of its last ﬁve regular-season games. O ut side l i nebac ker E lv i s Dumervil was a part of the Broncos’ defense that gave up the 70-yard touchdown to Jones. Now that he’s with the Ravens, he’s been watching ﬁlm from that game all week, criticizing himself for not applying pressure on Flacco. “I feel like I could’ve rushed bet-
ter, and it hurts every time I watch it, even being here,” Dumervil said. “As a player, you want to make a difference. Me being a Raven now, I want to make sure I make a difference.” Tonight’s game will be the third time since Dec. 16, 2012, that the two teams will meet. Despite the play’s importance, Flacco claims it’s been an afterthought. Perhaps winning a Super Bowl and signing a $120.6 million contract this offseason were on the forefront of his mind. “I haven’t really thought about it too many times — even this week getting ready to play them,” Flacco said. “If anything, I hope we don’t put ourselves in that situation again so that we have to win like that.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Weekend Pass | entertainment KATHLEEN HANNA: A PRIMER She hates being called the godmother of riot grrrl. But Hanna’s bands have made a huge mark on music.
Ruin and Rebirth Original riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna can finally do her own thing Nobody sings like Kathleen Hanna. Her voice is distinctive, like Kate Pierson’s from the B-52s or Poly Styrene’s from X-Ray Spex. Some slumbering spot in your brain lights up when you hear it, endearingly grating, especially if you discovered punk or feminism in the early 1990s, when Hanna, above center, led the seminal riot grrrl band Bikini Kill. That voice is back, and heavens to Miley, music needs it now: What’s it going to say? “Well, I just wrote this crazy record where no one can understand the lyrics,” Hanna offers, laughing. “Run Fast,” the long-awaited debut album from Hanna’s newest band, The Julie Ruin, is out this week — reuniting Hanna with Bikini Kill bassist Kathi Wilcox and adding guitarist Sara Landeau, drummer Carmine Covelli and keyboardist Kenny Mellman. Will it be a Wild Flag-style indie supergroup? “We can call it a supergroup in our own minds,” demurs Hanna, who was raised in Maryland.
Back in the Day D.C. de facto claimed Bikini Kill as its own when the band settled here for the summer of 1991, during which time Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye recorded their first proper (and self-titled) EP for the Kill Rock Stars label. The band rolled into D.C. at the end of a rough U.S. tour, Hanna remembers: “After months of people telling us how much they hated us and throwing s--- at us, we got to D.C. and all we got was love. It felt like they’d been waiting for us. A guy came up to me and was like, ‘That was so great,’ and I was like, ‘Are you tying to trick me?’ Because all I’d had was guys calling me a man-hater.” S.M
In Bikini Kill (which made its base in Olympia, Wash., where Hanna went to college), Hanna shouted demands from the start of every show: “We’re Bikini Kill, and we want REVOLUTION GIRLSTYLE NOW!” In the late ’90s, as the vocalist of electro-politico group Le Tigre, she took on a brainiac-workout-instructor vibe: The band’s songs were practically a college seminar in women’s studies, all to a beat you could pogo to. The Julie Ruin isn’t supposed to be a political band, and “Run Fast” isn’t supposed to be a political album. But lyrics like “Throw your words/ in the deepest ocean/ cover your wounds with calamine lotion” (from the album’s first single, “Oh Come On”) seem to carry some battle scars from a still-unfolding musical revolution Hanna’s helped soundtrack for more than 20 years.
Hanna (front), bassist Kathi Wilcox (rear), drummer Tobi Vail and guitarist Billy Karren burst onto a not-very-welcoming punk scene in 1991 with the tape “Revolution Girl Style Now!” Hanna penned the now classic riot grrrl anthem “Rebel Girl” and often performed with the word “slut” Sharpied across her chest in protest of the treatment of women in rock.
Le Tigre Call them electroclash, call them didactic, just never call them boring. Le Tigre, below — with Hanna (right), Johanna Fateman (left), Sadie Benning and, later, JD Samson (center) — brought feminist theory to the masses (2004’s “This Island” was even on a major label) with crazy PowerPoints and songs that did double-duty as graduate-level reading lists.
Julie Ruin In the late ’90s, Hanna released recordings made at her home studio as Julie Ruin, an alter-ego who wrote songs about crocheting, aerobics and love. (She’d begun dating Adam Horovitz, aka the Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock, whom she’d later marry.)

This band has been a long time coming. There was a prototype of sorts: In the late ’90s, Hanna released some home recordings as Julie Ruin and even started recruiting band members. But the process was slowed way down by a Lyme disease diagnosis and recovery that lasted several years. “It’s been a mixed blessing that it took so long to do the record because it was actually great that no one was looking at us,” Hanna says. But they are now as the band embarks on a U.S. tour. And what fans of her previous bands get may not be what they expect. Hanna’s politics are more nuanced now, and her songs leave more room for contradiction and even humor about feminist essentialism.
“There’s a generation of women who don’t feel like they have to write feminist anthems every 45 minutes.” — K ATHLEEN H A NN A , THE JULIE RUIN
“There’s always going to be disagreement,” she says. “If there’s no tension, things can’t move ahead.” Hanna has been literally sorting out her political and musical legacy, preparing personal papers and ephemera for the Kathleen Hanna archive at New York University’s Fales Library and contributing to a broader Riot Grrrl archive. “On one hand, I don’t give a s--about ‘legitimacy,’ ” she says. “On the other hand, this stuff needs to be studied so it can be critiqued. I don’t want to airbrush the flaws out now.” In a way, finishing the archive has freed her: “[In previous bands,] I felt very responsible to those kids who lived in the suburbs like I did,” she says. “I can still love them and hope they reach my work. But now there’s a generation of women who don’t feel like they have to write feminist anthems every 45 minutes, because that’s been done. I want some of that!” SHAUNA MILLER (EXPRESS)

Lincoln Slept Here
STEEP CANYON RANGERS The long-running North Carolina quintet became bluegrass’ standard-bearer in 2009 while touring the country and making TV appearances as the backing band for comedian Steve Martin’s banjo show. Last year, they won their ﬁrst Grammy with their eighth album, “Nobody Knows You.” The follow-up, “Tell the Ones I Love,” drops on Tuesday.
Bros Before Banjos Three of the Rangers met in 1995 as students at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. They formed the band in 1999 and practiced in the music building with a borrowed bass. “None of us were music majors,” says guitarist Woody Platt. “Graham [Sharp] was a comparative literature major, Charles [Humphrey III] was an international studies major, and I was in interdisciplinary studies.”
Famous Friends The late Levon Helm once invited the Rangers to record in his Woodstock, N.Y., barn. They took The Band man up on his offer last winter. “It’s an old, timber-frame barn with a big fireplace and snow piled up outside,” Platt says. “I bet on some tracks you can hear the crackle of the fire.”
Shut Up and Play The guys used to tell jokes onstage between songs, but Steve Martin cured them of the habit. “Now that we’ve worked with Steve and seen how well you can do comedy, we don’t touch it.” SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)

The historic U Street theater wakes up and rocks out with a new booker and a full roster
The Lincoln Theatre will host a variety of musical acts booked by local promoter I.M.P.
Music Though a prime piece of real estate in a bustling area, U Street’s historic Lincoln Theatre has lay dormant for years. It wasn’t always that way. “A bunch of different people did a lot of different things [there] at different times,” says I.M.P. chairman and 9:30 Club co-owner Seth Hurwitz of the theater, which has had many owners and identities since its opening in 1921. Back then, the neighborhood was known as Black Broadway, and the Lincoln functioned as a silent film and vaudeville theater serving black audiences. In 1927, it was conPlaying in verted into a movie theater.

But in 1989, the t heater received $4 million in federal funds for restoration, and it reopened in 1994, hosting local events such as the annual Reel Affirmations lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender film festival. In 2007, the city took ownership of it as a historic landmark. Still, programming at the Lincoln remained scattered and sparse. Then, last year, the D.C. Commission on the

THEN: Duke Ellington Shaw resident and jazz king Duke Ellington, memorialized with a mural at 12th and U streets NW (which is now down for repairs), frequented his neighborhood movie theater at the start of his career. He’d also perform music in the rear concert space. THEN: Dave Chappelle The Duke Ellington School of Arts grad riffed on race and segregation in his hometown when he recorded his 2000 special “Killin’ Them Softly” at the Lincoln.
NOW: Chuck D Legendary rapper Chuck D kicks off the venue’s first weekend of shows on Saturday, performing songs from his 2010 record “I Don’t Rhyme for the Sake of Riddlin’.”
NOW: KT Tunstall Scottish singer-songwriter Tunstall’s 2005 song “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” scored a Grammy nom. She’s sure to perform it on her Sept. 28 date at the theater.
Arts and Humanities took over and asked Bethesda-based I.M.P. (it stands for “It’s My Party”), which books shows for the 9:30 Club and Merriweather Post Pavilion, to fill the stage regularly. D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities executive director Lionell Thomas says that “all great cities … are defined by their cultural institutions,” which is why he was anxious to get life breathed back into the oncehopping venue. “It will become a world-class destination again,” Thomas says. “This marks a new chapter in its history.” Hurwitz and his bookers know how to bring the party, and the Lincoln has a built-in cache similar to the recently revamped Howard Theatre. “We want this to feel like a special night out when you go see a show here,” he says.

Potter fan of the duo, but his stage persona lacks a lot of fundamental knowledge. “It’s that straight man/ dumb, funny man act, with me trying to get through by the skin of my teeth, but not knowing Harry Potter from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ from Narnia,” Clarkson says.
Daniel Clarkson, right, does battle with Jefferson Turner in a very abbreviated version of the Harry Potter series.
“Salinger,” out next Friday, is about the author of “The Catcher in the Rye,” the book that half of America finds intensely powerful and the other half vaguely remembers reading the CliffsNotes for in high school. “Salinger” is a documentary, but plenty of real-life authors have been portrayed in fictional films.

1 Christy Brown Brown was a well-respected writer and painter, which is even more impressive when you realize that the title of this 1989 biopic — “My Left Foot” — refers to the only part of his body he could control.
2 Sylvia Plath Gwyneth Paltrow played the poet in the 2003 film “Sylvia,” which no one saw. But pretty much everyone with a passing knowledge of contemporary poets knows how it ends (not well).
3 Stephen Glass Glass, played by Hayden Christensen in 2003’s “Shattered Glass,” earned acclaim for his stories in The New Republic, Rolling Stone and other pubs. The journalist’s career was tragically cut short when he got caught making those stories up.
4 J.M. Barrie Johnny Depp played the creator of “Peter Pan” in 2004’s “Finding Neverland”; Kate Winslet co-starred as his friend who died and wouldn’t come back to life, no matter how much the audience clapped.
Abridged Too Far? Nah ‘Potted Potter’ squishes the Harry Potter series into 70 gleeful minutes Stage Poor, poor He-Who-Must-Not-BeNamed. It’s OK, You-Know-W ho. Daniel Clarkson is on your side. “I feel Voldemort is very misunderstood,” Clarkson says. “Here he is, the greatest dark wizard of all time, and he keeps getting beaten by an 11-yearold. That’ll hit you pretty hard.” Clarkson plays Lord Voldemort (among others) in “Potted Potter,” a

INDIES & ARTIES
70-minute, two-man comedic crash course that covers all seven Harry Potter books. A fellow Brit, Jefferson Turner, plays Harry; Clarkson is Hagrid, Hermione and “pretty much everybody else.” The show started in 2005 as a fiveminute street performance summarizing the first five novels, created to entertain people waiting in line for the release of “Harry Potter and the HalfBlood Prince.” The current incarnation was born in 2007, when the duo managed to get elements of the seventh book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” wedged in just days after its release. Clarkson says he’s the bigger Harry
Snitching On the Quidditch Near the halfway point of the show, there’s an onstage, audienceparticipation game of Quidditch, which plays very differently in the States than it does across the pond. “We’re a cricket nation,” Clarkson says. “We’ll applaud politely. You’re cheering and yelling and throwing small children. You let loose more.”
The show is billed as appropriate for “ages 6 through Dumbledore,” which Clarkson says was intentional. “First and foremost, Harry Potter is for everybody. I don’t think there’s another series like it,” he says. “When we do the show, it’s an eclectic mix. We’ve had a bachelorette party [sitting] behind an 8-yearold’s birthday party.” While Turner and Clarkson refer to the movies in the play, they stick to the books as their source material, with a little poetic license. “When I read the books years ago, in my head [Severus] Snape had an Eastern European accent,” he says. “There’s nothing that suggests that in the book, but I think that brings out the evil in him.” So Clarkson’s interpretation of the morally ambiguous Hogwarts professor (he ills-kay Umbledore-day, but is edeemed-ray) is entirely unlike Alan Rickman’s defining film performance. There’s another big difference, too. “Alan Rickman only got to play Snape,” he says. “I get everybody.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

Local indie rockers U.S. Royalty study up on what makes a hit Music When it came time for D.C. indie rockers U.S. Royalty to unveil the sweeping, hypnotic title track from their sophomore album, “Blue Sunshine,” for the world, singer John Thornley wanted “something to entertain the eyes while you listen to the song.” There wasn’t time to set up a proper video shoot, so he attached a GoPro camera to a buddy’s motorcycle and had him take a serene drive through Rock Creek Park,
not far from Thornley’s Mount Pleasant home. The tranquil visuals of the video hark back to the two weeks that U.S. Royalty spent recording the album last November at Dreamland Studios in upstate New York. The fourpiece band (which includes Thornley’s brother, Paul, on guitar, bassist Jacob Michael and drummer Luke Adams) lived in the studio, a converted church, while working. “I think it helps free up your mind,” Thornley says of the country setting. “You can go do other things and then come back refreshed to the music.” For the album, which doesn’t yet have a firm release date, “we wanted to focus all our energies on writing

our versions of pop songs,” he says. That meant expanding on the sound of 2011’s “Mirrors” in subtle ways: orchestra flourishes, guitarpicking styles and vocal effects. It also led the band members to obsess over details as they mixed the record near a cemetery in Potomac, Md. — a process that took five months. “It was a long time,” says Thorn-
ley, who moonlights as a disc jokey and vegan baker. “No band should ever mix their album. We did.” In his downtime from mixing, Thornley studied a little-known tome, “The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way),” by Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty, which outlines a model for pop success. He also leafed through D.C. indie icon Ian Svenonius’ “Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group.” “There is a pattern with it all,” Thornley says of making pop songs. “It was fun reading that stuff and taking notes: OK, there is certain beat or bpm that people respond to — that’s why it works. “But,” Thornley adds, “considering it took us a while to write, record and mix the album, maybe we should have paid more attention to what we were reading.” RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

For those who remember the corner of 14th and Q streets NW better as a laundromat than Le Diplomate, the neighborhood looks a little different these days. From Logan Circle northward, restaurants on 14th Street are unwrapping the brown paper from their windows, revealing renovated interiors ready to serve an influx of new residents. It’s charming to see freshly glazed pop tarts through freshly glazed windows at Ted’s Bulletin’s second outpost. Of course, you can still find Ted’s famous homemade pop tarts at the restaurant’s original location on Barracks Row. And if the tables at the new Greek restaurant, Kapnos, are full (spoiler alert: they are), you can always eat chef Mike Isabella’s food at his Chinatown restaurant, Graffiato.
The same could be said of Ghibellina, a new take on Italian from the owners of Eastern Market favorite Acqua Al 2. Meanwhile, up on V Street, Diego was opened — and temporarily closed — by the brother-owners of Dupont Italian Kitchen. And the new pizza place, Etto, has three proprietors: two own Tenleytown’s 2Amys and one owns 14th Street’s Garden District. This summer’s restaurant boom brought new and exciting concepts to 14th Street — almost exclusively from owners with successful ventures elsewhere in the District or around the country. A s a result, 14th Street is quickly becoming a microcosm

2Amys’ pizzas have long been touted for their Naples-worthy crust. Which is why diners were shocked to learn the dough at Etto would be prepared using a completely different technique. “I didn’t want to be bored with doing the same thing,” says 2Amys and Etto co-owner Peter Pastan. The result is a much chewier — though just as enjoyable — pie.

There’s only one dish you’ll find on both Acqua Al 2 and Ghibellina’s menus: the bistecca alla fiorentina. Though the two restaurants —owned by Ari Gejdenson — focus on Tuscan cuisine, the latter offers rustic small plates and wood-fired pizzas in a more casual setting. “I wanted there to be a vibrant drinking atmosphere,” Gejdenson says. A sprawling 50-seat bar makes his wish a reality.
You’d think Southeast Asian fare would be a departure for Haidar Karoum, the current executive chef at Estadio (Spanish tapas) and Proof (New American). But Karoum helmed the kitchen at the now-defunct Asia Nora for eight years. “It’s not a cuisine I’m unfamiliar with, and it’s definitely in my wheelhouse,” says Karoum, who aims for unadulterated Thai and Vietnamese flavors at his new venture. “I have to get the flavors right, otherwise it’s almost disrespectful.” Chase your spicy lemongrass noodle soup at 2 Birds 1 Stone, a hidden bar (no signage) located downstairs.
This taco joint — from the same owners behind Cashion’s Eat Place in Adam’s Morgan — is just a lime’s throw away from 14th Street. The place isn’t technically new, since it simply relocated from Capitol Hill. But the new digs promise the same delectable made-to-order tacos with a very important addition: beer and margaritas. “We always intended for the Taqueria to be in a neighborhood,” coowner Johnny Fulchino says.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Week 1 after eight months of rehab on his reconstructed right knee.
RGIII Ready to Get Down
QB vows to change how he plays in his second NFL season Redskins
Michael Vick says it’s taken him 10 years to learn when to slide. Robert Griffin III figures he’ll have it down pat just a few days from now. “I mean, you guys have been talking to me about it for eight months,” the Washington Redskins quarterback said Wednesday. “I think it’s ingrained in my head now. I’ll be getting down on Monday night.” After eight months of rehab on his reconstructed right knee, it’s ﬁnally all-systems-go for Grifﬁn to play in the prime-time Week 1 opener against Vick and the Phila-
6:55 P.M. Monday | ESPN
delphia Eagles. Grifﬁn said there’s a chance he could be even more emotional than when he made his NFL debut a year ago. His stated goal: “Play like you were never gone.” But not necessarily play the same. This is the second time Grifﬁn has returned from major knee surgery. He said the first time around, after he was hurt playing for Baylor in 2009, was “a lot more scary” because he didn’t know if he would be his old self again. When he did return, he didn’t change how he played. This time, he says he will. After missing all or part of four games
in his rookie NFL season because of injuries, he almost has to. “It’s a different mentality in college,” Grifﬁn said. “You’re trying to get to the pros, and there are [a] lot more different things you can do at that level that are frowned upon at this level. I just know I’ve got to be safe and slide and still play fearless. I’m not going out there and play scared.” Changing the mindset isn’t easy. Vick, 33, is a decade older than Grifﬁn and has had more than his share of injuries while making his name as a run-pass quarterback. “What I’ve learned is you have to be cautious,” Vick said, “because these guys in this league, they hit so hard, and we only weigh about 210 pounds, 215 pounds.”

Jamaican sprinter says he wants to end his career on top Olympics
Usain Bolt currently holds the world records in the 100 and 200 meters.
in Moscow last month. At 27, Bolt has the experience to know that a lax season midway between Olympics can hurt him. In
2010, a soft entry into the year and subsequent injury cost him almost a full season. “I kind of didn’t do much in the offseason and then got injured and had to start from scratch,” Bolt said. “So this season, I will not make that mistake again.” Like 2010, next season has no major championships, but Bolt is thinking of new goals for 2014. He already owns the 100 and 200 world records and shares the 4x100 with his Jamaican teammates. “I have learned, I have mastered the art of running the turn,” Bolt said of the 200. “So if I can stay injury free and be in good shape, then it is possible for me to deﬁnitely go after the world record.” RAF CASERT (AP)
$4.9M In July, John Wall signed an $80 million, five-year deal with the Washington Wizards. His next step? Buying a Potomac, Md., mansion for $4.9 million. The NBA point guard, who turns 23 on Friday, traded his downtown apartment for a house big enough for family, friends and the occasional blowout pool party. How big? It’s 17,350 square feet with eight bedrooms and 12 baths. (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Usain Bolt plans to retire after the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Bolt said Wednesday he wants to win more gold in Rio, set another world record in the 200 meters next year, and perhaps win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. “So far, [it] is after the Olympics in Rio,” Bolt said of his retirement plans. “I think if I am in great shape, I’ll go there and do what I have to do. I think it will be a good
time to retire on top.” Winning three more golds in Moscow last month made him the most decorated athlete in world championship history with eight golds and two silvers. He also has six gold medals from the Olympics. “If I want to be among the greats of [Muhammad] Ali and Pele and all these guys, I have to continue dominating until I retire,” Bolt said ahead of his ﬁnal race this season in the 100 at Friday’s Van Damme Memorial in Brussels. Bolt won the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and at last year’s London Games. He won the same triple at the 2009 worlds before repeating that feat

The ‘Stars’ Shuffle Snooki, Valerie Harper and Bill Nye join ABC’s next ‘Dancing’ cast 31
All About ME! I’m super-excited about the new fall shows. Seven people on a boat tour are shipwrecked on an island. Ha ha, they sure get on one another’s nerves! A Confederate Army vet turns bounty hunter. He’s the fastest draw and softest heart in the West. A cruise ship is crammed with B-toD-list stars ready for romance. OK, the shows aren’t truly new. They are the ’60s sitcom By Marc “Gilligan’s Island,” a Silver 1958 Steve McQueen vehicle called “Wanted: Dead or Alive” and, yes, “The Love Boat.” But they’re all fresh additions to the nightly lineup of classics on “Me-TV.” “Me” stands for “memorable entertainment.” The Chicago-based oldies network arrived in D.C. this year on WJLA’s Channel 7.2 and on cable. At first I was ashamed to wallow in antediluvian programming. Then I thought: Why not travel back to a pure and innocent entertainment world where Miley Cyrus wasn’t even born? I’m not the only Me lover. Nearly a million fans enjoy “The Rifleman,” above, Me-TV’s top-rated show about an 1880s widower and his boy. And I bet FLOTUS tunes in. Her favorite sitcom, “The Dick Van Dyke Show” airs Fridays. Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse
The film “American Milkshake” was shot in Takoma Park, Md., on locations including the basketball court outside the Takoma Park Recreation Center, below. The film used several locals as actors, including E.J. Vilche, at right, who was cast off the street.
AMANDA VOISARD PHOTOS (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Made in Takoma Park The teen comedy ‘American Milkshake’ gives locals a taste of big-screen stardom Film E.J. Vilche thought the young folks shooting video at the sub shop near his Takoma Park, Md., apartment last summer might have been doing a school project — until one of them asked if he wanted to play the role of the heavy in their feature film. “She said, ‘Can you do a mean face?’ So I gave her the mean face,” recalls Vilche, 22, a busboy at P.F. Chang’s in Rockville. “I thought about my ex-girlfriend, and I used every muscle in my face.” You’re in, the woman said. “I didn’t even know it was an audition,” he says, “and I got the part.” Vilche went on to spend the next month enmeshed in the making of “American Milkshake,” a small-bud-
get teen comedy about race, class and basketball in 1990s Takoma Park. Created by David Andalman, a 1997 graduate of Montgomery Blair High School who is now based in Los Angeles, the project grew into a kind of townwide enterprise in the summer of 2012. The ﬁlm was shot in local schools, actors bunked with local families, and Internet mailing-list callouts provided the extras even as producers scoured neighborhood driveways for period cars. But the little local project has gone bigger than its many volunteers ever imagined. The ﬁlm was selected for the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and,
after being picked for distribution by independent-ﬁlm guru Kevin Smith, will open Friday in limited theatrical release and become available on video-on-demand systems. (Comcast and iTunes will both carry the title.) “I’m going to get my friends and pop some popcorn and watch it on the ﬁrst night,” Vilche says. “I had no idea it was going to be this big a deal.” Neither did Martha Bergmark. When her son David asked whether he could borrow the family house for a little movie project, she and her husband, Elliot Andalman, said sure. They were thinking of
“It was incredibly humbling. You’re surrounded by all the people who watched you grow up.” — DAVID A NDA LMA N , ON SHOOTING HIS FILM, “AMERICAN MILKSHAKE,” IN TAKOMA PARK, WHERE HE GREW UP
the modest short ﬁlms their cinema-loving boy had been making since he was a student. “It never occurred to us that we’d have 25 or 30 people wandering around our house for a month, not to mention the enormous panel truck that spent the night in our driveway,” Bergmark says. The blue-frame house on Montgomery Avenue became studio central, with wardrobe racks in the living room, sets built in the attic and daily shooting schedules lining the dining-room table each morning by 5 a.m. The basement became the art department, crammed with mid’90s props, from boxy computer monitors to vintage video games. Bergmark shared her home ofﬁce with rows of massive hard drives where the crew would back up the day’s digital footage each night. “It was a madhouse,” she says. “Like summer camp on steroids. But it was a blast; how often do you get to watch your adult son work?” STE VE HENDRIX (THE WASHINGTON POST )

lookout entertainment George Lucas’ first draft of ‘Star Wars’ is reborn as a comic Books COMEDY
Funny Ladies’ Night Carol Burnett will get tributes from Julie Andrews, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler when she receives the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Oct. 20. Tim Conway and Vicki Lawrence of “The Carol Burnett Show” will also take part in the ceremony, which PBS will air Nov. 24. (E XPRESS)
A young, idealistic rebel from a desert planet seeks to fight an unjust, tyrannical emperor with a space station capable of destroying planets. “Star Wars,” the 1977 film? Not quite. Try “The Star Wars,” the 1974 rough draft by George Lucas that, ultimately, turned into the popular and still culturally resonant ﬁlm. Now, Dark Horse Comics is bringing the original script to
life as an eight-issue miniseries — with Lucas’ blessing — giving fans a different take on Darth Vader (no helmet), Luke Skywalker (he’s older and a general), Princess Leia, Han Solo (he’s green), C-3PO and R2-D2, along with new characters such as Anikinn Starkiller and his father, Kane. “This is not something you could film,” series writer J.W. Rinzler says of the original script and his adaptation of it. “Here’s a giant city and then here’s a giant vista ﬁlled with huge spacecraft. [Lucas] was doing his blue sky version of what he wanted to do. He knew this was not going to be ﬁlmable.” The story has similarities to
DARK HORSE COMICS
May the Force Be Different
In “The Star Wars” comic, characters wield lazerswords — not lightsabers.
“Star Wars,” but the differences throughout “The Star Wars” are plentiful and noticeable, Rinzler says, and readers will notice many of them as they explore each page, some big, some small. “It’s just great when the Jedi break out their lazerswords. Guess what? The storm troopers break out their lazerswords,” he says, noting that in this draft, there are no lightsabers and the Jedi are more akin to Errol Flynn-types than warrior monks. Artist Mike Mayhew, who illustrates the series, says there’s “so much more action, set creatures, such visual candy” in the miniseries. MAT T MOORE (AP)

entertainment lookout If women can get a pick-me-up from a new lipstick, how can a man get that same quick fashion ﬁx?
Considering I wear the same thing almost every day, there’s not much I can do. For many men, the quick fix is the tie, and I don’t wear a tie, so I change my aviator [sunglasses].
One or two colors? This season, try them all. Our fall fashion preview in Friday’s Express has looks, shoes, bags and more in every hue.
Branding Expert Fashion industry icon Michael Kors readies a new fragrance line Q&A Michael Kors can’t really be called just a fashion designer anymore. He’s a full-fledged lifestyle brand, and that lifestyle is about to add color cosmetics and several new
fragrances. The fashion institution, who this week was recognized by The Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology for his contribution in artistry to the industry, returns to his old stomping grounds, “Project Runway” (9 p.m., Lifetime), to guestjudge today’s episode. How is the process different for
The Antidote To Miley Mania Ariana Grande earns pop success for her talent, not her antics Album Review While Miley Cyrus is being a wild child to demonstrate she is growing up, Ariana Grande is letting her music do all the talking. The 20-year-old singer-actress, one of the stars of Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” and the network’s
spinoff “Sam and Cat,” is in nearperfect form on her debut, mainly thanks to her Mariah Carey-esque vocals and songs written by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. “Yours Truly” kicks off with the R&B-ﬂavored, near-6-minute “Honeymoon Avenue.” It’s dreamy, velvety and warm and backed with shoo-be-doos and violins. It sounds as good as a Justin Timberlake intro. Gra nde uses her voice as an instrument throughout the
you in developing beauty products versus clothing and accessories?
With accessories and clothes, first I have to fall in love with whatever it is, but then I get practical. Is the bag too heavy? Can you wear a bra with the dress? With beauty, it’s more of a quick mood check. … It’s more gut. Immediately, if I smell something and it’s evocative, I go with it. What takes so long is the packaging.
There are three “muses” for your new perfumes: sexy, sporty and glam. How do you deﬁne them?
TV TONIGHT 8 P.M.
‘Wipeout’ (ABC) An extreme obstacle course is a great place for a first date, apparently, as Jill pairs up the contestants into 12 couples and sends them through the course together.
‘Tamar & Vince’ (WE) As the new season begins, singer Tamar Braxton, below right, and her impresario husband, Vincent Herbert, below left, anticipate the arrival of their new bundle of joy. But there’s still time to market Tamar’s new album, “Love and War.”
There’s the “sexy,” who is all about confidence. … There’s “sporty,” the woman who could be headed to the red carpet or the gym, but she’s the type who just goes. And there’s “glam,” who likes to be the center of attention. Did you have any of your famous friends in mind when you were creating the perfumes?
For sporty, it’s Blake Lively; can’t you see her surfing and putting on a gown? … Sexy is Angelina Jolie or Rihanna. They exude confidence. And then there’s the glamorous Jennifer Lopez. She’s never a wallflower. She goes big or goes home. SAMANTHA CRITCHELL (AP)
‘Airplane Repo’ (DSC) Mike is in Alaska, where he makes a risky emergency landing on a glacier. In Texas, Kevin engages in a comedy of errors to get hold of a Bell helicopter. And Danny puts his muscles to work getting a Lear jet out of its hangar — by hand.
12-track set: “Baby I,” with its ﬁnger snaps, features her screaming high notes; “Tattooed Heart” and “Daydreamin’ ” are A-List ballads; and on “The Way,” her lead single and Top 10 hit, Grande’s v oic e s ou nd s l i k e a C a r e yTon i Br a x ton mashup. Her breakthrough comes at a time when other former DisneyNickelodeon stars — Cyrus and Selena Gomez — have pop hits in the Rihanna mold. Grande, on the other hand, is looking back to ’90s R&B-pop on her debut — and her formula works much better than the others.
‘Wilfred’ (FX) Ryan (Elijah Wood, above left) could really use Wilfred’s (Jason Gann, above center) help right about now. But Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann, above right) has decided to keep them apart in the season finale.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A change of scene works wonders for your mood and your productivity. See if you can’t adjust further to suit another’s needs. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may have to discuss certain issues at length before putting your plans into motion. You may not get a chance to start over. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may find yourself drifting freely between two extremes — either literally or figuratively. Emotions are strong. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You mustn’t expect progress to be swift, but you can certainly count on taking certain necessary steps throughout the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may wonder at another’s antics during daylight hours, but after dark, you may be the one playing the role of the clown. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) What you do in the privacy of your own home may not be something you want anyone to know about — at least not just now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re not likely to respond favorably to those who disregard your warnings or instructions. Take care to keep your temper, if possible. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll feel a certain gravitational pull when a member of the opposite sex arrives on the scene. Self-control is essential!
