US Adds 300K Jobs in December Spurring hope, report says hiring spike is biggest in past decade
The number of jobs economists had expected the ADP numbers to show, the first major snapshot of hiring in December. The actual figure was 297,000. (AP)
D[mOeha Companies added nearly 300,000 jobs in December, according to an unofficial count by a private payroll firm — more than in any month in the past decade. The news raised hopes that the government’s official report Friday on last month’s job creation could be a blockbuster. While there were reasons to doubt the numbers, the report from Automatic Data Processing, and another showing strength in the nation’s service industries, reversed what was shaping up to be an ugly day on Wall Street. It also generated optimism that the unemployment rate might finally start to fall. Some economists expressed skepticism about ADP’s monthly figures because they often don’t track the official government employment data. Others said that the report’s estimate of job gains was so high that it at least reinforced evidence that hiring is

I_]de\j^[J_c[i5 The Labor Department said last week that the number of people applying for unemployment benefits has fallen to its lowest point in two and a half years. Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial, says the ADP numbers suggest the Bureau of Labor Statistics could report Friday that the economy created more than 300,000 jobs last month. Economists have been predicting fewer than half as many — 145,000. It takes about 125,000 new jobs a month to keep up with population growth and hold the unemployment rate stable. It takes up to 300,000 new jobs a month to reduce the unemployment rate significantly. (AP)
picking up as employers gain more confidence. The report is just the latest sign that the job market might be turning around at last. The Labor Department said last week that the number of people applying for unemployment benefits has fallen to its lowest point in two and a half years. Economist Jonathan Basile at Credit Suisse called the ADP report a “game changer.” “The step-up in hiring according to ADP — especially if it’s reflected in the payroll report on Friday — suggests that firms appear to be more confident in the outlook and more comfortable to put the cash they’ve been hoarding to work. Put another way, that’s when visibility gains tractions in business planning and the job market shifts into another gear.” (AP)

N-Word Cut From Twain Scholar’s plan to alter ‘Sawyer,’ ‘Huck Finn’ sparks controversy Cedj]ec[ho"7bW$ Mark Twain wrote that “the difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter.” A new edition of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “Tom Sawyer” will try to find out whether that holds true by replacing the N-word with “slave” in an effort not to offend readers. Twain scholar Alan Gribben, who is working with NewSouth Books in Alabama to publish a combined volume of the books, said the N-word appears 219 times in “Huck Finn” and four times in “Tom Sawyer.” He said the word puts the books in danger of joining the list of literary classics that Twain once humorously defined as those “which people

Published in the U.S. in 1885, “Huck Finn” is the fourth-mostbanned book in schools, according to “Banned in the U.S.A.” by Herbert N. Foerstal, a retired college librarian who has written several books on First Amendment issues.

The book isn’t scheduled to be published until February, at a mere 7,500 copies, but Gribben has already received a flood of hateful e-mail accusing him of desecrating the novels. He said the e-mails prove the word makes people uncomfortable. “Not one of them mentions the word. They dance around it,” he said. Another Twain scholar, professor Stephen Railton at the University of Virginia, said Gribben was well respected, but he called the new version “a terrible idea.” The language depicts America’s past, Railton said, and the revised book was not being true to the period. Railton has an unaltered version of “Huck Finn” coming out later this year that includes context for schools to explore racism and slavery in the book. “If we can’t do that in the classroom, we can’t do that anywhere,” he said.

A Polarized Pakistan Simmers Suspect in slaying of governor heralded as thousands mourn
Lawyers showered the suspected killer of a prominent Pakistani governor with rose petals when he arrived at court Wednesday, and an influential Muslim scholars group praised the assassination of the outspoken opponent of laws that order death for those who insult Islam. Punjab Gov. Salman Taseer, 66, was fatally shot Tuesday, allegedly by one of the men assigned to protect him. Police say Mumtaz Qadri, 26, confessed to killing Taseer because of the politician’s opposition to strict blasphemy laws. As Qadri made his first appearance in an Islamabad court, the hero’s welcome he received illustrated Pakistan’s growing identity crisis as fundamentalist Islam has spread here over the years. A rowdy crowd slapped Qadri on the back and kissed his cheek as he was escorted into the court. About 200 people chanted in sup-

port as he left the hearing. More than 500 clerics and scholars from the group Jamat Ahle Sunnat said no one should pray or express regret for the killing. The group representing Pakistan’s majority Barelvi sect also issued a veiled threat to other opponents of the blasphemy laws. “The supporter is as equally guilty as one who committed blasphemy,” the group warned in a statement, adding politicians, the media and others should learn “a lesson from the exemplary death.” The assassination of Taseer, a senior member of the ruling People’s Party and close ally of President Asif Ali Zardari, has further deepened the ongoing turmoil in Pakistan, where the economy is barely scraping by and suicide attacks are an ongoing threat. As a sign of the growing influence of Islamists, the People’s Party promised days ago not to touch the blasphemy laws. The ruling party is seeking support from opposition groups after the defections of two parties, which stripped it of its majority in parliament. (AP)

Combative Cleric Returns to Iraq
Waning U.S. sway stressed by radical Shiite’s homecoming DW`W\"?hWg
Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada alSadr, a fierce opponent of the United States’ and head of Iraq’s most feared militia, came home Wednesday after nearly four years in selfimposed exile in Iran, welcomed by hundreds of cheering supporters in a return that solidifies the rise of his movement. Al-Sadr’s arrival ensures he will be a powerful voice in Iraqi politics as U.S. forces depart. His return caused trepidation among many Iraqis, particularly Sunnis who remember vividly the sectarian killings carried out by his militia and believe he is a tool of Iran. The cleric’s return comes just two weeks after Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki cobbled togeth-

He fled to Iran in early 2007 in the wake of President George W. Bush’s announcement of a surge of U.S. troops. Though al-Sadr cited his religious studies as the reason he continued to stay in Iran, many speculated that he did not dare return for fear of being arrested. (T WP)

Only the Foggy Bottom Station will be closed for maintenance work. Blue Line trains will operate about every 20 minutes between Franconia-Springfield and Rosslyn. Blue Line trains between the Largo Town Center and Farragut West Metrorail stations will operate about every 15 to 20 minutes.

Sounds like you were in one of the three test cars that have been rolling around the rail system for a couple years. This year, Metro will be consulting riders on the interiors they’d like to see in the next generation of rail cars, the 7000 Series. You’ll get a chance to tell them what you think of the floors and seats. I like the fuzzy seat covers and think they’ve held up well.
Welcome to 2011. This normally reliable Red Line commute now involves platform construction at Shady Grove, which means that there will be no chance of a train waiting at the platform in January/February, and an escalator outage at the K Street exit of Farragut North that is unreal. Any hope for either of these projects wrapping up soon? Those platform repairs are a major part of the long-term Red Line rehabilitation project. At Shady Grove, the end of the line, it means that riders will find trains waiting on only one side of the station. Metro wanted to get that one started during the winter, when ridership is lower than in the warmer months. In the springtime, work will resume, but I believe that won’t involve single-tracking. You’ve got a couple of escalator issues at Farragut North. The rehab will take till March.

4 Days, 5 Killings in Pr. George’s Officials say spate is not an omen for new year, simply a ‘blip’
Five people have been slain in Prince George’s County since New Year’s Day, four of them Tuesday, as 2011 opened with an unusual spate of violence. In the latest shooting, which occurred just before midnight Tuesday, one person was killed and three people were wounded in the Hillcrest Heights/Marlow Heights area, police said. That incident followed three other slayings earlier in the day, including two in which duct tape was placed over the victims’ mouths. The five killings in so brief a period appeared to depart from a trend in the past two years in which

Acting Police Chief Mark Magaw said that the “whole focus of this police department” is on solving the homicides and that he was working to strengthen relationships with federal agencies and home in on violent criminals. “Do I think it’s an omen for 2011?” Magaw said. “No, I don’t, but our job is to make sure these crimes don’t continue.” County Executive Rushern L.

Barry Schlossberg, the community affairs chairman for the Brookwood-Holloway Civic Association, said the killings were a reminder “that there’s still crime out there.” “As a community representative, certainly, we would hope that this is not a portent of what’s to come and that it is simply a blip,” Schlossberg said.

Any member proposing legislation must include a statement citing “as specifically as practical” Congress’ constitutional authority to pass the law. House Republicans set up a similar rule in 1997 that is still in effect, but that requirement is less stringent. This new rule, along with a first-ever reading of the Constitution on the floor of the House, is a nod to the tea party activists who challenged Congress’ constitutional authority to require Americans to purchase health insurance, set standards for local schools, and pay for highways or mass transit.
Republicans celebrate their emotional return to power in the House MWi^_d]jed
Claiming power beneath the Capitol dome, resurgent Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives on Wednesday as the 112th Congress convened in an era of economic uncertainty. Dozens of tea party-backed lawmakers took office in both houses, eager to cut spending and reduce government’s reach. “The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin carrying out their instructions,” said newly elected House Speaker John Boehner. Both the House and the Senate convened at the constitutionally mandated hour of noon for a day of pageantry and bipartisan flourishes that contrasted sharply with the fierceness of the midterm elections that set the new roll of lawmakers. In the Senate, where Democrats retain control, Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada selected retired Republican senator Paul Laxalt to accompany him when he took the oath for a new term. In the House, children and grandchildren squirmed in the laps of their elders, less than transfixed at the historic events unfolding around them. Republicans hold a 242-193 majority in the House and have pledged to challenge President Obama. The first salvo is expected next week, a bill to repeal the sweeping health care law that Democrats pushed to passage 10 months ago. The day’s events unfolded as the economy showed signs of increased strength as it emerges from the worst recession in eight decades. Even so, unemployment remains at nearly 10 percent, a historically high level, and a problem both parties have vowed to tackle.
Any spending increase for mandatory programs such as Social Security or Medicare must be offset by spending cuts elsewhere. This “cut-go” rule is a narrower version of the “Pay-As-You-GO” (PAYGO) rules passed when Democrats controlled the House. Under PAYGO rules, both new spending and tax cuts had to be offset by spending cuts or tax increases. Under the new rules, tax cuts don't require offsets — only spending increases do. Moreover, the rule specifies that tax increases cannot be used to pay for new mandatory spending.
House members take the office of office, beginning the 112th Congress on Wednesday.

Instead of opposing Obama’s every proposal, as they did in 2009 and 2010, House Republicans must compromise with him if they are to show results in their drive to cut spending. Yet their eagerness to repeal the health care bill is in line with a no-compromise position articulated by tea party forces. Given to displays of emotion, Boehner paused to dab at his eyes with a handkerchief as he made his way to the speaker’s rostrum. His was an unlikely ascension, capping two decades in Congress in which he held and then lost a leadership position when Republicans were last in a majority, then re-emerged as leader of a dispirited minority in 2006. “The American people have humbled us. They have refreshed our memories as to just how temporary the privilege to serve is. They have reminded us that everything here is on loan from them. This includes this gavel,” he said, as Pelosi handed over a symbol of his authority. DAVID ESPO (AP)
7dej^[hI^Wa[#Kf0 White House press secretary Robert Gibbs confirmed Wednesday that he is leaving the administration in the coming days, saying he will play an outside advisory role and give speeches before helping President Obama gear up for the 2012 campaign. The decision to join the private sector came as something of a surprise: Gibbs, 39, has worked by Obama’s side for nearly seven years, and other advisers had expected him to move into a senior advisory role. (T WP)
=hWdjd[mfem[hijej^[ >eki[XkZ][jY^W_h To enable its plans to make deep spending cuts in the current fiscal year, Republicans propose giving the incoming budget chair, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., power unilaterally to set tax and spending limits for fiscal year 2011. The move is potentially an extraordinary one. Any spending above the limits that Ryan sets would be subject to a point of order on the House floor — a significant procedural hurdle. House GOP leaders have pledged to cut $100 billion out of domestic spending for the current fiscal year, and vesting Ryan with such authority would jump-start that process.
H[f[Wbj^[=[f^WhZjhkb[ In 1979, Rep. Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., proposed setting the debt limit automatically at the level projected by the most recent budget resolution. The rule, still in effect, allows for the debt limit to be raised without the House having to take an unpopular stand-alone vote. Many of the incoming freshmen Republicans campaigned against raising the debt limit and say that they welcome a face-off with President Obama over cutting spending and reining in government.

The Cost of Not Spending Nats pay the price with free agents for years of losing ways
Cashing In Last year, Adam LaRoche was in a similar free agent position coming off 25 homers, 83 RBI and an .843 OPS. He got $4.5 million for one year. Now, after 25 homers, 100 RBI and a .788 OPS, he gets $16 million for two years. In his eightyear career, mostly with the Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates, LaRoche has hit .271 with an average of 26 home runs and 93 RBI per 162 games. (T WP)
Nothing is free. Billionaires aren’t exempt. As the Nationals’ owners are learning, in baseball there is even a price to be paid for the money you didn’t spend in the past. These days, Ted Lerner can’t give away his millions even when he tries. It’s a sight to behold. You don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The Nats stood on their heads for days trying to convince ’09 AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke to accept a trade and get a fat contract extension. Before a deal could be made, Greinke invoked his no-trade clause rather than come to D.C. So, two weeks ago, 8oJec K.C. traded him to 8eim[bb Milwaukee. The Nats and their money also have been turned down regularly by less notable objects of their affection. The Nats probably outbid the Rockies for lefty Jorge de la Rosa, but he stayed in Colorado. The Nats analyzed Carlos Pena all summer, but, after hitting .196, he signed with the Cubs. Derrek Lee picked the Orioles. On Tuesday, as the list of offseason targets shrank, the Nats signed the one free agent every-

Rizzo, acerbically. After moving into their new ballpark in 2008, the Nats fielded a bad product and got a worse reputation for having a small-market-mentality. Even when the Nats honestly tried to spend, they lost out for Mark Teixeira and Aroldis Chapman. So, the label stuck. In reality, those two 100-loss years were a bitter lesson for the Lerner family. They changed their view of how to run a baseball team. But not fast enough to transform their image in their industry. “Maybe it took them three years longer than it should have. But they’re doing the right things now,” said a former front office member. “Give them credit for that.”

body knew they absolutely, positively had to have: Adam LaRoche. The Nats paid full price — at least — for a first baseman who has averaged 26 homers and 89 RBI the past five years — almost exactly the MLB average for the position. They gave a two-year deal for $15 million, plus a $1 million buyout on a third year at $10 million. Everybody knows the Nats
have money to spend and, finally, want to spend it. When a player seeks leverage, his people hint that the Nats are the mystery team chasing him. As a result, the Nats “didn’t get” Cliff Lee, even though they were just doing due diligence in inquiring about him. Soon, the Nats “won’t get” Carl Pavano either. “I hear we are ‘the finalist’ along with the Twins,” said GM Mike
The Nats delivered the shock with the signing of Jayson Werth, but they haven’t delivered much of the awe yet. So far, the Nats’ winter is probably a slight upgrade, thanks to better defense at first base and in the outfield. But no sane team takes on a $126 million contract just so it can avoid 90 losses. Unless a deal for Tampa Bay’s Matt Garza gets done at a sane cost in prospects, this is going to be one weird winter for the Nats. They pulled out the stops. Their Werth contract defines “in for a dime, in for a dollar.” But so far what the Nats keep hearing is, “Not enough. Make a higher offer. Add a year to that deal. Call back after you win something.” (THE WASHINGTON POST )
>[WZie\j^[9bWiiHere are the results from Wednesday’s voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame Roberto Alomar: The 12time All-Star won a record 10 Gold Gloves at second base, hit .300 for his career and helped the Toronto Blue Jays win titles in 1992-93. In his second year on the ballot, Alomar — who famously spit on an umpire as a member of the Orioles — was picked on 90 percent of the ballots by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
Bert Blyleven: The great curveballer had 287 wins, 3,701 strikeouts and 60 shutouts. This was his 14th time on the ballot, and his career stats have gotten a boost in recent years by sabermetricians who have new ways to evaluate baseball numbers. He was picked on 79.7 percent of the ballots— it takes 75 percent to reach the shrine.
Rafael Palmeiro, Mark McGwire, Jeff Bagwell and Juan Gonzalez: None of the sluggers — who fall under the cloud of the steroids era — came close to reaching the threshold for reaching the Hall. Palmeiro, who failed a drug test and was suspended in 2005, months after adamantly denying steroid use in front of Congress — was listed on just 64 of a record 581 ballots (11 percent) in his first try despite lofty career numbers. He is joined by Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Eddie Murray as the lone players with more than 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. (AP)

Tom Rachman captures both the glamour of the foreign correspondent’s lifestyle — drinking in Venice, loving in Paris — and the banality of the actual job. Set at a struggling newspaper in Rome, the novel depicts disillusioned characters such as Arthur, an obit writer whose work always ends up “between the Puzzle-Wuzzle and World Weather.” Rachman, who drew on his background as a journalist in Rome and Paris, reads Friday at Politics and Prose.
There’s almost nobody whose principles of clear writing are better than Orwell’s. The training of a journalist, of working with words for thousands of hours, is extraordinarily useful for a fiction writer.
So, you didn’t live the hard-drinking, carousing Hemingway life?

Did the romantic notion of the reporter abroad inﬂuence your career path?
There was a lot less drinking. Fifty or 60 years ago, journalism was a hodgepodge of characters who were flung into the pit of night cop reporting and hazing from other journalists, almost entirely men at that time. That certainly wasn’t the world I entered.

The museum kicks off its 90th birthday party with a special exhibit Cki[kci
The Phillips Collection is throwing itself a 90th birthday bash, and it is determined to make it a colorful affair. The year-long slate of special exhibits and events begins with the unveiling of “As Time Goes By,” two vivid hand-painted etchings, each 20 feet long, by British artist Howard Hodgkin. “They have enormous energy and excitement,” says chief curator Eliza Rathbone of the 2009 works,
Howard Hodgkin’s 2009 work “As Time Goes By” is made up of two 20-foot handpainted etchings, making it the British artist’s most ambitious work to date.
which make their U.S. debut in the main gallery on Saturday. “There’s a celebratory feeling to them that’s amazingly appropriate.” “Hodgkin is all about color, which is one of our collection’s hallmarks,” Rathbone says. “And these works
just jump out at you.” Part of their impact comes from the carborundum relief process, a printmaking technique that produces textured surfaces and deep hues. “It creates a velvety, rich surface,” Rathbone says, “because this method holds the pig-
ment in a very dense way.” The pair of prints in “As Time Goes By” are the largest works ever made using the process. The Collection hosted Hodgkin’s first U.S. show, in 1984, and Rathbone thinks the two are ideal complements. “The kinds of artists he’s inspired by are already here, like Matisse and Vuillard, she says. “Our founder, Duncan Phillips, was all about presenting new works, while still looking at the older artists who influenced them.” NE VIN MARTELL

J^[=koM^eA_bb[ZFbkje Blame Mike Brown, who figured out that the littlest planet wasn’t one at all 8eeai

You may have fond memories of fashioning a crude model of the solar system back in grade school — nine Styrofoam balls orbiting a yellow cardboard sun. You may also recall the handy mnemonic that taught generations the order of the planets: My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. Alas, it’s all wrong. You had one too many Styrofoam balls, and your well-schooled parent gave you no pies at all. Pluto is no longer a planet. Much to the dismay of schoolchildren and stargazers everywhere, it was officially demoted in 2006, when the International Astronomical Union redefined the term “planet” to exclude Pluto. The planet wasn’t simply snubbed. It was assassinated, and the finger on the trigger belonged to an unassuming Cal Tech astronomer named Mike Brown. It all started with a bet he made with a colleague while the two were at the Palomar Observatory in San Diego: Brown argued that there were other, possibly larger planets lurking beyond Pluto. He was a little bit right and a little bit wrong: His initial discovery, a body eventually named Eris, was not a planet, yet its similarities to Pluto brought about the downfall of both. Brown recounts the discoveries and debates that led to Pluto’s fall from grace in his new book, “How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming,” an informative, accessible book that balances the author’s warm humor with an unmistakable awe at the cosmos. Ahead of his appearance Saturday at the National Air & Space Museum, Express asked Brown to give us a quick astronomy lesson.
Let’s cut to the chase: You killed poor little Pluto! How could you?
When astronomers discovered Pluto 80 years ago, they thought it was a major body in the solar system on par with the discoveries of Uranus or Neptune. It took decades to realize that it was much, much smaller than originally thought and decades more before we also realized that there are many, many things like Pluto out past Neptune. Pluto is, from the point of view of the entire solar system, pretty easy to overlook.
phone calls from what sounds like frat parties. Many people are still quite sensitive about the Pluto issue. Why do you think people have had such a hard time accepting Pluto’s demotion?
What’s next for you? Making any shady new astronomy bets that will reshape the entire solar system?
One of the reasons is because they carry around a cartoon picture of the solar system in their heads. Even I would call Pluto a planet if it were as big as the cartoon versions that people see on place mats and lunch boxes. But reality is so different. And so much more interesting.
I do have a new bet and a new quest in astronomy. But it’s a secret, as all good quests should be until they either succeed spectacularly or fail miserably. I hope for the former, but the latter is a definite possibility with this one. But don’t worry; no planets will be destroyed in the process.
Harsh. Do you get hate mail?
I used to get angry e-mails from school kids. I think they’ve now grown up and gone to college and joined fraternities, because now I tend to get late-night, drunken, obscene
about the universe. Sometimes, those new things will cause us to revise what we had thought before. In the past, we thought Pluto was singular. It’s not. So, we change our understanding to ref lect what we now know about reality. Wherever we are confronted with the limits of our knowledge — as we are in the distant parts of the solar system — new discoveries are always going to update how we think.

— V IC TORIA MILKOV ICH, POLAROID TRACY CLAYTON
If you look in Victoria Milkovich’s refrigerator, she jokes, you’ll find a bottle of tequila and tons of film. There are Polaroid pics on her walls, under the kitchen table and covering seemingly every other surface in her home. The nostalgic charm of the instant snapshot — “the noise you hear when you take a picture and the smell of the chemicals that it gives off and watching it develop before your eyes” — has captivated Milkovich since childhood. Her passion for the retro medium compelled the University of Maryland undergrad to assemble “Exposed,” an exhibition of instant photos opening Thursday night at H Street’s SOVA coffee and wine bar. “I’ve been taking Polaroids my entire life,” Milkovich says. “I turned to one of my friends one day and I said, ‘I think I’m going to do a Polaroid gallery show.’ There’s got to be so many other people shooting with this film that I don’t know, and I want to meet them.” She expected only modest interest. But after Philippa Hughes of the Pink Line Project put out a call for submissions, Milkovich wound up with more than 1,000 photos from 21 local instant-photo fans (including herself). The bulk of that haul will be on view at SOVA. “One gentleman gave me pictures of his gay ’80s leather club days; another person gave me pictures of her newborn child,” she says. “I had someone who gave me five that they had laying on their kitchen counter and someone give me about 200 in a little plastic box.” Not all the images are vintage — many depict fixtures of the D.C. arts scene. Milkovich sent invites to some of the subjects; in one instance, she

FebWhe_ZI^ehjIkX`[Yji Bka[7ZWci"(, DRUMMER FOR THE BAND U.S. ROYALTY
I ran into this adolescent bicycle gang in a church parking lot in West Virginia. My buddy had just bought a vintage Honda motorcycle. These kids were all amazed by the motorcycle and equally amazed when I pulled out my Polaroid camera and started developing pictures right before their eyes. It didn’t take long before they were demanding pictures of themselves. At the end of the day, I gave away around a pack of film to these kids and barely managed to escape with this photo.

I’d just moved to D.C. and was getting ready to go out for the night. I knew pretty much no one in the city proper, and I went out a lot by myself. I have no idea where I was headed, but I do remember I’d just thrifted the shoes and I was newly obsessed with those typical D.C. parquet floors and tried to get as much of it in the picture as possible.

Those not lucky enough to be on display can have their own Polaroid snapped at the opening party — a memento Milkovich hopes people will display on their own fridges.

In a city that counts Bad Brains and Riot Grrrl among its musical gifts to the world, a band like Noon:30 should feel right at home. Still, says drummer Vivianne Njoku, “a lot of people still greet us with this scratched-record effect when we walk in the door.” Audiences might not expect a group of African-American women to produce the fuzzed-out art-punk that’s Noon:30’s trademark. But Njoku — who formed the band three years ago with bassist/guitarist Aissa Arroyo-Hill and vocalist/bassist Blue S. Moon — says smashing stereotypes is part of the fun of being part of D.C.’s diverse music scene. “People don’t know where to put us,” she says. “We look one way; we sound a different way.” With influences ranging from N.E.R.D. to country, Noon:30 has built a local following by playing practically every venue in town, from hip-hop clubs to Fort Reno. Njoku says the band will keep breaking boundaries on stages across town in 2011, starting with two shows this month, at Comet Ping Pong and Liv nightclub. “When we get on stage,” she says, “our music just stands on its own.” KRISTINA GR AY Comet Ping-Pong, 5037 Connecticut Ave. NW; Sat., 10:30 p.m., $10; 202364-0404.

Fkda8hW_di 7dZFef>[Whji D.C.’s own Max Levine Ensemble tangles up some power chords Cki_Y What’s the secret to a long-rocking band? Unbridled passion? Unwavering commitment? For D.C.’s Max Levine Ensemble, endurance has meant something far simpler. “The band just wasn’t really able to break up,” says vocalist David “Spoonboy” Combs. “There were a couple points when it looked like the band had reached its conclusion. But we couldn’t agree on it, so we just kept playing together.” The group’s brand of catchy pop punk might seem out of place in a town known for aggressive hardcore and mathy post-punk, but Combs isn’t worried about that. “If someone writes us off because we have a hook in our song instead of a breakdown, I don’t take offense to that,” he shrugs. The Ensemble’s connection to D.C. runs deeper than musical aesthetics, anyway. “I think we’ve always been more connected based on types of shows we play rather than on the
type of music we play: shows where people are finding wherever they can to put it on, shows that have a more politicized DIY aspect and have more political lean to the lyrics.” Many of the band’s songs are so upbeat that you might be fooled into thinking they were simple, tossedoff tunes. But Combs says to listen closely: “[Our sound is] catchy, it’s more fun, but we’ve also broached heavier things in our lyrics.” Want proof? Check out Tmle.terrorware. com, where you can find lyrics and free MP3s of their entire back catalog. For TMLE’s upcoming 10-year anniversary show, the band will be releasing a greatest-hits disc — except all of the tracks are new. “We have old records that we’re running out of, and we thought, rather than re-pressing these old records that sound so different, we would rerecord them,” Combs explains. “In some cases, we’ve been playing these songs for years, and they’ve progressed and changed. So, we wanted to document that.” RYAN LIT TLE Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Sat., 9 p.m., $10; 202-667-7960, Blackcatdc.com. (U St.-Cardozo)
W hen Edmund Morris was a schoolboy growing up in Kenya, he saw a picture of Theodore Roosevelt, taken when the U.S. president was on safari in Africa. With his round, beaming face and broad hat, “he looked to me like f u n ,” Mor r i s recalls. Roosevelt has turned out to be much more than Morris si mply f u n for Morris. The 26th president has been a compelling and complicated subject with whom the writer has spent much of the past 30 years. In 1980, Morris won a Pulitzer Prize for his first biography, “The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt”; a second installment, “Theodore Rex,” followed in 2001. In between, Morris wrote a book on Beethoven and served for 15 years as former president Ronald Reagan’s official biographer.
ÇB_a[ceij]h[Wj c[dh[fh[i[djWj_l[ e\j^[_hj_c[i"^[ Z_[Zm^[d^_ij_c[ YWc[jeWd[dZ$È “Colonel Roosevelt,” the third and final volume, chronicles the years after the presidency, when Roosevelt devoted himself to travel, letters, conservation and many other pursuits. With his agile mind and striking sense of humor, Roosevelt has proved good company. “You couldn’t spend that length of time
with anyone who wasn’t consistently funny, amused by life and amusing in himself,” Morris says. “Apart from that, it’s just the sheer richness of his character, which was not simply that of a monochromatic politician but was that of a tremendously rounded polyglot personality.” Roosevelt was, Morris explains, a man who thoroughly embodied early 20th-century America. “Like most great men representative of their times, he died when his time came to an end. If he had lived on into the 1920s, he would have come to find that he was not in tune with the Jazz Age.” Morris is eager to move on. “When I finished the book in January , I felt nothing but a calm sense of finality. I don’t think about him too much anymore,” he recalls. He adds, however: “All these years later, I’m grateful to the fun of him. He was a lot of fun.” STEPHEN M. DEUSNER

It’s an odd task, making a poem into a movie. Not a flowery sentimental poem, either, but the gritty, generation-defining work of Allen Ginsberg. In Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein’s film “Howl,” just released on DVD, Ginsberg’s poetry is couched in re-enactments of candid interviews and the obscenity trials that surrounded the publication of the piece in 1956. Every word in the film was originally spoken by the characters portrayed, and the courthouse dialogue is so entertaining it’s hard to believe it’s not fabricated. It’s difficult to imagine a more daunting cinematic feat than keeping an audience’s attention during

the reading of a poem. Friedman and Epstein tackle this by frequently presenting animated interpretations of the work, designed by Ginsberg collaborator Eric Drooker, on top of James Franco’s excellent orations, which are interspersed throughout. Though there are a few interesting moments, the illustrations are mostly distracting — excru-
ciatingly literal depictions of the characters in the poem play out like an awkward, creepy superhero flick, losing the nuance and depth of Ginsberg’s wild imagery. The genius of the original work lies in its raw humanity, but the CGIlaced cartoons gloss over graphic sexuality and violence with a strangely lurid fantasia of dreamlike interludes.
If that were all there was to the film, it might be a failure, but it’s not. Franco conveys all of Ginsberg’s revelatory honesty and open-ended self-exploration as he discusses his struggles with his identity as a gay man, his role as a poet and his uncanny life experience. Franco’s charm exposes Ginsberg’s wit as he recounts living with criminals and stays at a sanitarium. The interviews alternate with tense moments of courtroom drama, and the movement between the two worlds keeps the picture flowing. While the film has its faults, it’s an apt celebration of Ginsberg’s life and work. The poem’s place in history is clear, and the momentum of the cultural shift around it, complimented by Franco’s impeccable performance, is contagious. RYAN LIT TLE

Go to Netflix.com. Type in “Tron.” Hit “search.” Do you know what happens? No instant streaming, no “add to queue.” That’s because the 1982 sci-fi flick that takes place in a bizarre electronoworld isn’t available on DVD. (There are rumors that it’s because the special effects, so very mind-blowing in the prehistoric era when MTV actually played music, look terrible today. But that doesn’t stop the original “Clash of the Titans,” with its Play-Doh skeletons doing battles, now does it? It’s more likely that Disney, who owns the film, has some sinister plan that will make it a kajillion dollars.) But all is not lost if you want to catch up with the original before seeing the sequel in theaters, or if you don’t feel like paying someone on eBay upward of $100 for a bootleg copy: The Library of Congress is showing “Tron” this Friday, that you may take in the glory that is Jeff Bridges battling an evil computer intelligence he accidentally created as he rides those crazy laser motorcycles and wears a lot of neon.

Potential weekend plan No. 2: Gently dupe your children into thinking you’re going to see “Yogi Bear,” then sneak them in to a one-timeonly showing of 1988’s “My Neighbor Totoro” by the wild genius Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki. “Totoro” follows two girls who move to the countryside to be near their sick mother, only to discover that the surrounding woods are full of magical woodland spirits. There’s also a fantastic giant cat/bus creature, a method of transport sorely lacking in other children’s tales. Miyazaki’s 2008 film “Ponyo” (a version of “The Little Mermaid” in which the heroine was, among other things, obsessed with ham) got some attention when it was released in the States not long ago, but the director has yet to crack our country’s larger cultural consciousness — which is an absolute crime. His stories are masterfully crafted and his arresting, accessible visuals continue to inspire a new generation of animators. Library of Congress, 101 Independence
In this loud, long and less-than-wholly satisfying sequel to the 1982 scifi cult classic “Tron,” poor computer nerd Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) suffers the terrible fate of being trapped in a computer game with Olivia Wilde.

Some tips the ensure you get the freshest doughnuts possible:
=BK9EI; Area pastry pushers offer inventive variations on the humble doughnut HekdZkf Whether you’re having them for breakfast or a late-night dessert, there’s something so satisfying about doughnuts that they are sometimes hard to eat because you’re grinning so widely. Now, thanks to area restaurants, smile from sunrise till sundown with fresh spins on these beloved circular treats. One of the tastiest twists on the standard doughnut are the beignets at the Korean-Cajun fusion joint Mokomandy out in Sterling, Va. Executive chef Daniel Stevens
makes the classic unique: “It’s a much cakier, yeastier flavor than you’d get from your typical Cafe du Monde-style beignet.” Each piping-hot order comes with an ever-changing array of dipping sauces that have included pumpkin butter, dulce de leche, blackberry coulis and quince-hibiscus sauce. Stevens says the Louisiana favorite is the eatery’s bestselling dessert by far. “I see a lot of people make their ‘wow’ face after the first bite,” he says. In D.C., Dupont Circle’s Eola serves a more traditional yeastrisen doughnut rolled in cinna-

However, the dough is less sweet, which makes them a nice starter for your midday

meal. More gluttonous are Tabard Inn’s sweet circles, which come showered in cinnamon sugar and accompanied by a mound of vanilla whipped cream. For doughnuts as dessert, Matchbox (D.C. and Rockville) fills paper cones with cinnamon donut balls and serves them with a small cup of warm espresso Kahlua dipping crème, a great option for the whole table. “We’re known for sharing food — pizza, mini-burgers,” says co-owner Perry Smith. “So, we wanted to carry that into the dessert menu.” For a playful sweet finish, try Casa Nonna in Dupont Circle. Executive chef Amy Brandwein prepares the pastry in the form of a standard Italian dessert, bomboloni. Fried doughnut balls are soaked in syrupy limoncello liqueur and then dressed up with mini-meringues and a few curly slivers of candied lemon peel. “It’s a flirtatious and fun dessert,” Brandwein says. “Plus, they’re called bomboloni. You couldn’t ask for a more fantastic name.” If that name doesn’t make you smile, the first bite definitely will. NE VIN MARTELL

If you don’t want to trek out to Eden Center in Falls Church for a taste of Vietnamese cuisine, just zip over to Ba Bay on Capitol Hill. Executive chef Nick Sharpe used to work at nearby Sonoma, where he specialized in modern Italian fare. Now he’s turning his culinary eye to the East, where he’s stirring up successes mixed Sharpe with missteps. The chili-glazed chicken wings are a nice starter; a smidge of sweet complements the hint of heat. Likewise, the autumn rolls — a crispier take on traditional spring rolls — are a fine kickoff dish, especially when dipped into the peanut-hoisin sauce. Less enjoyable is the chicken liver mousse pâté, which is smooth

but far too heavy to truly be called a mousse. And when it is joined with the pear mustard, all the flavors muddle together without any satisfying synchronicity. One of the most interesting lunchtime entrees isn’t even on the menu. The banh mi sandwich changes daily and is limited to 20 orders. A recent version found a baguette firmly stuffed with homemade pork pâté, trotter terrine, pickled daikon (an Eastern radish),
onions and carrots, plenty of cilantro and a generous smear of freshly made mayonnaise. It’s a strong take on a Vietnamese street food staple and an interesting alternative to a midday burger. For dessert, order the warm banana cake sitting in a pool of curried chocolate sauce and covered in a tumble of homemade peanut brittle shards. Take a pass on the trying-too-hard-to-be-clever coffee pudding with condensed milk ice cream, which fails to mimic the rich, sweet Vietnamese coffee experience. If you’re in that mood, just order a cup of Ba Bay’s coffee and make sure to swirl your spoon into its depths so you kick up the hidden pool of condensed milk. Ba Bay is an energized upstart with a lot of promise, though there are a few kinks to work out. The exciting menu and eager team are reasons to keep going back — this tribute to Vietnam’s street fare will only grow better with time. NE VIN MARTELL

New ‘Newlyweds’ E! gets ready to begin filming reality spin-off ‘Khloe and Lamar’ (-
Guiding Light Oprah Winfrey says shows on her cable network OWN will offer “pieces of light.” I assessed the light content of last Saturday’s preview of “Kidnapped by the Kids,” above, a reality series launching in March. Premise: Offspring force workaholic parent to shun work and spend time with them. Exterior light: Bedroom lamp shines before dad hits sack Sunday to rest up before early flight for a week of out-of-town work; airport lights glare 8oCWhY as son and daughter I_bl[h “kidnap” dad; flashlight illuminates tent during camping phase of kidnapping; sunlight strikes dad and son when son says, “I think you [travel on business] because you hate us.” Absence of light: At first, Dad dimly deems kidnapping “ludicrous,” defends NEAR TOTAL ABSENCE from family, citing need to make money for house, food, son’s camp. Inspirational light: When dad is dismayed that fishing trip nets no fish, son says, “Fishing is about getting fish but also spending time with who you are doing it with.” Dad sees the light: “Everything I do is for you guys. Sometimes maybe I do it wrong.” Conclusion: Viewers, you’ll need sunglasses. And … sniff, sniff … tissues. Comments? Give Marc your feedback: expressnightout.com/muse
Legendary country singer Ricky Skaggs infuses his new disc with musical curiosity 7hj_ijG7
Ricky Skaggs’ cup isn’t half-empty — or even half-full. “My cup runneth over,” the country legend sings on his latest album, “Mosaic.” It’s difficult to argue with such an expression of contentment, especially considering the career Skaggs has had. After a string of hits during the 1980s and 1990s that pegged him as a Nashville neo-traditionalist, he founded Skaggs Family Records and reinvented himself as a bluegrass picker, a pop singer, a gospel crooner and everything in between.
H_Yao IaW]]i Mosaic
Recently nominated for gospel and country Grammys, “Mosaic” bears only a passing similarity to his previous album, “Songs My Dad Loved,” but shares with all of Skaggs’ releases a guiding musical curiosity. Congratulations on the Grammys! Did it surprise you to be nominated in so many categories?
It really did. It’s the first time I’ve been nominated in a folk or gospel category. It’s always been bluegrass or country. “Songs My Dad Loved”
Grammy-nominated country musician Ricky Skaggs isn’t afraid to dabble in genres as diverse as pop, gospel and bluegrass.
was a real surprise, and I’m so thankful for that. It would be really great to win that for my dad. You music lies at the intersection of so many styles. Did you think about categories like gospel, folk, or country, especially on “Mosaic”?
I never thought about it one time. I just didn’t think about any particular direction. The only thing I knew for sure was that “Mosaic” was going to be different. And now you’re on tour with your old band Kentucky Thunder.

Yes. I’m calling the tour Treasure Chest. There’s a great old scripture about a good man [who] goes into his treasure chest and takes out things old and new. A lot of my country fans that I’ve had for years, they haven’t seen me go out with a full band since 1996. The bluegrass fans will be able to see us transition right into blazing bluegrass, and then we start doing songs from “Mosaic.” STEPHEN M. DEUSNER Birchmere, 3701 Mt.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, shown in April 2010, is unapologetic about his site’s widely debated privacy policies.
PkYa[hX[h]El[hbeWZ CNBC scrutinizes Facebook’s ubiquitous, controversial founder If[Y_Wb “The Facebook Obsession” continues the media’s love/hate affair with Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old face of Facebook. Over the past year, Zuckerberg has been the subject of the acclaimed drama “The Social Network” and named Time magazine’s Person of the Year. “Obses9D89

We also hear from some disgruntled early partners who claimed to have been shoved aside and lost out on their portion of the eventual payoff. “Obsession” opens the door for about five seconds on the notion that Zuckerberg may not be mature or emotionally stable enough to manage the well-being of a half-billion “friends.” We visit with happy users, like the young woman who found her

But there’s also the educator who was fired for statements she made about her boss, criticisms she believed were entirely confidential only to learn that Facebook had changed its privacy settings without telling her. Zuckerberg makes no secret that a place where so many people willingly provide so much information about their friends, their ages, their likes and their dislikes is a gold mine for marketers. Some say Facebook has no right to sell that information. Others believe that users no longer “own” what they volunteered. KEVIN

HGTV’s Sellout “Selling New York” (9 p.m., HGTV) returns for a second season, chronicling the highend brokers as they throw parties, fashion shows and elaborate lunches to find buyers for “homes” priced in the millions. “Selling” is a far cry from the network’s original mission to celebrate homes and gardens. One broker examines a flat that had been rented for 12 months and discovers that the oven had never been turned on. “It’s like my wife’s kitchen,” he brags, much to the horror of anyone who used to watch HGTV for the pleasure of watching real people fix up real homes.
