Panel: Benghazi Attack Was Preventable Bipartisan report finds no evidence of a political cover-up

Backstory

Both highly critical and bipartisan, a Senate report declared Wednesday that the deadly assault on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, could have been prevented. The account spreads blame among the State Department, the military and U.S. intelligence for missing what now seem like obvious warning signs. For the first time in the muchpoliticized aftermath, the report also points at Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack. It says that the State Department ended a deal with the military

to have a special operations team provide extra security in Libya and that Stevens twice refused an offer to reinstate the team in the weeks before the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. The military also takes criticism in the report for failing to

respond more quickly on the night of the assault. The Obama administration first described the assault as a spontaneous mob protest of an anti-Islamic, American-made video. Such a protest did occur at the U.S. Embas-

Your Kid Mistakenly Made an App Purchase?

Now, the tech giant has agreed to refund the money. Following tens of thousands of

consumer complaints, the Federal Trade Commission said Wednesday that Apple will pay at least $32.5 million to settle a federal case involving those in-app purchases. Apple also must change its billing practices to make it more obvious that a purchase is taking place during the course of the game or app. One parent told the FTC that her daughter had spent $2,600 in

mention of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is named by the panel’s Republicans as the official who should ultimately be held responsible for the failures at Benghazi. But the broader report also finds no evidence of the kind of political cover-up that Republicans have long alleged. The committee described the attacks as opportunistic and said there was no specific advance warning. The senators also take the administration to task for failing to bring the attackers to justice more than a year later. They say the U.S. has identified several individuals responsible but can’t capture them because of limited intelligence capabilities in the region and limited cooperation by local governments.

NSA Spies Via Radio Waves Report: Software installed in 100,000 foreign computers

Meanwhile … President Barack Obama is expected to endorse changes to the way the government collects millions of Americans’ phone records for possible future surveillance, but he’ll leave many of the specific adjustments for Congress to sort out, according to three U.S. officials familiar with the White House intelligence review. In a highly anticipated speech Friday, Obama is also expected to announce broader oversight of the surveillance process. (AP)

Washington The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world — but not in the United States — that allows the U.S. to conduct surveillance on those machines, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times cited NSA documents, computer experts and U.S. officials in its report about the use of secret technology using radio waves to gain access to computers that other countries have tried to protect from spying or cyberattacks. The software network could also create a digital highway for launching cyberattacks, the Times reported. The Times reported that the technology, used by the agency for several years, relies on radio waves that can be transmitted from tiny

circuit boards and USB cards inserted covertly into the computers. The NSA calls the effort an “active defense” and has used the technology to monitor units of China’s army, the Russian military, drug cartels, trade institutions inside the European Union, and such sometime U.S. partners against terrorism as Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan, the Times reported. Parts of the program have been disclosed in documents leaked by Edward Snowden, the former NSA systems analyst, the Times report-

ed. A Dutch newspaper published the map showing where the United States has inserted spy software, sometimes with the help of local authorities. Der Spiegel, a German newsmagazine, published information about the NSA’s hardware products that can secretly transmit and receive signals from computers, according to the Times. The Times said it withheld some of those details, at the request of U.S. intelligence officials, when it reported in summer 2012 on American cyberattacks on Iran. (AP)

Plane Crash Aftermath on Video Footage shows teen run over by fire truck after rescuers alerted San Francisco WE LOVE SCIENCE

Food for Thought Chimpanzees who share are chimpanzees who care, it seems. A study published Wednesday appears to confirm that friendships are forged at mealtimes, at least for chimps. Scientists found that chimps who share their food have higher levels of oxytocin, known as the love hormone, than those who don’t. (AP)

Video from a firefighter’s helmet camera following the crash landing of an Asiana Airlines flight in San Francisco shows rescuers were aware there was someone on the ground outside the plane, before she was fatally run over by a fire truck. On Tuesday night, CBS affiliate KPIX-TV aired parts of the footage showing the chaotic aftermath of the July 6 crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at San Francisco Inter-

national Airport. The station said it obtained it from a person close to the family of the girl who was killed, 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan. Fifteen minutes after the driver of a fire truck was alerted to where she was, the video shows that same truck running over her, according to the station, though footage of her being run over was not aired in the broadcast. The helmet camera shows another truck driving over her minutes after that, according to KPIX-TV. The San Mateo County Coroner has confirmed that Yuan was killed by a fire truck. It’s still unknown how Yuan got out of the plane. Interviews for an ongoing National Traffic Safety

Backstory During final approach for landing July 6, Asiana Airlines Flight 214 slammed into a seawall at the end of a runway at San Francisco’s airport. The impact ripped off the back of the plane, tossed out three flight attendants and their seats, and scattered pieces of the jet across the runway as it spun and skidded to a stop. Ye Meng Yuan, 16, above, was one of three Chinese teens who died; one died during the crash, and another died later in the hospital. (AP)

Board investigation found Yuan was covered with foam and struck twice. “At least five firefighters knew of her presence before she was covered in foam, nobody examined her, nobody touched her, nobody protected her, moved her or did anything to take her out of harm’s way and then they abandoned her there,” said Anthony Tarricone, an attorney for Yuan’s family. San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said Wednesday that she could not comment on the video because of pending litigation, but she confirmed there were videos and photographs of the scene that were taken by firefighters and turned over to the department.

U.S. Has Video of Soldier Taken Prisoner in 2009 U.S. officials said Wednesday they have received a new video of captured U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, but it is not clear when the video was taken. A senior defense official said the video came to light several days ago, but there were no other details. Bergdahl, who is from Idaho, was taken prisoner in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009. It is believed he is being held somewhere in Pakistan. The Taliban have said they would free him in exchange for several of their most senior operatives who are being detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. (AP) LAGOS, NIGERIA

India: Danish Tourist Gang-Raped Woman looking for directions assaulted in capital, police say New Delhi A 51-year-old Danish tourist was gang-raped near a popular shopping area in New Delhi after she got lost and approached a group of men for directions back to her hotel, police said Wednesday. Police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said two people were arrested after a daylong search for the suspects. The woman asked the men for directions to her hotel, Bhagat said. They lured her to a secluded area where they raped her at knifepoint, according to the Press Trust

The problem of sexual violence in India has gained attention since the horrific gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman on a moving bus in December 2012. Public fury over the case has led to more stringent laws that doubled prison terms for rape to 20 years and criminalized voyeurism and stalking. But for many women, particularly the poor, daily indignities and abuse continue unabated and the new laws have not made the streets any safer. Ranjana Kumari, director of India’s Center for Social Research, said India’s conservative, patriarchal traditions lead men to use rape as a tool to instill fear in women. (AP)

Egberg Mikkelsen said the woman had received assistance from Indian and Danish authorities. Foreigners have been targets of rapists, including a Swiss woman who was cycling with her husband in central India when she was gang-raped. The cases threaten India’s lucrative tourism industry.

The constitution is a key piece of a political roadmap toward new elections for a president and a test of public opinion about the coup that removed Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood from power last July. The majority of Egyptians who converged at the polls appeared to support the charter, which was likely to pass in voting Tuesday and Wednesday amid an intense media campaign in its favor and a tight security grip silencing its opponents. Many voters said the referendum consigned Morsi and the Brotherhood to a bygone era. “This constitution is a nail in the coffin of the Muslim Brotherhood,” said Badiea Mansour,

Silver Line Tests to Start But a date still hasn’t been announced for its debut to riders Washington Metro is expected to start testing trains on the first phase of its new Silver Line next weekend, but there is no set date for when the new line will debut to riders. At a meeting Wednesday of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is overseeing construction of the new line, officials said they had resolved a software issue linked to a critical safety system.

Got Phase 2 Questions? Officials have launched a hotline for members of the public who have questions or concerns about the second phase of the rail project. The tollfree hotline will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The number is: 1-844-385-RAIL. Preliminary work on the second phase, which will have six stops, has begun. It is expected to open in 2018. (T WP)

“We are now ready to take the next step,” said Jack Potter, president and CEO of MWAA. I n No v e mb e r, of f ic i a l s announced that completion of the first phase of the $5.6 billion rail project would be delayed after officials found problems with the software associated with the automatic train control system. Now that the software issues

have been resolved, Potter said officials will conduct a “simulated service” exercise in which Silver Line trains will run at the same time weekend Metro service is being run. The test will likely be run the weekend of Jan. 25. The November delay was the second time in six months that the project’s timeline had been moved back.

Local The attraction will open in April at National Harbor

Pr. George’s County, Md. A city known for a monumental skyline marked by a sober granite obelisk is getting a piece of good old American razzle-dazzle plopped down just outside its borders. In April, a $15 million, brightly lit 175-foot Ferris wheel will begin slowly spinning visitors on 12- to

15-minute rides as they overlook the Potomac River from the burgeoning $4 billion playground known as National Harbor seven miles south of D.C. in Prince George’s County. “When you have a place like National Harbor or Washington, you need new things, iconic things. Not piddly things,” said Milt Peterson, the real estate magnate behind National Harbor. Peterson said he envisions the attraction, easily visible from flights arriving or departing from Reagan National Airport, becoming as much a part of region’s

skyline as the Washington Monument or U.S. Capitol. In mid-2016 it will be joined by a $925 million MGM resort and casino. Such glit z y a lterations to Potomac views may come as an affront by some, particularly given the wheel’s visibility from Old Town Alexandria. Georgetown resident Dawn Carpenter calls the Capital Wheel “cultural deja vu.” “Just as Dubai is planning for the massive Dubai Eye wheel in 2015, now National Harbor?” she wrote in an email. “I hope we are not being

Gray Signs Bill Raising D.C.’s Minimum Wage Washington Mayor Vincent Gray signed a bill Wednesday giving D.C. workers one of the nation’s highest minimum wages, finally giving his wholehearted support to the measure after months of public skepticism. The bill, passed by the D.C. Council in September, raises the wage in steps, culminating in an $11.50 minimum in July 2016. After, the rate will be reset yearly based on the region’s cost of living. As he signed the bill, Gray was surrounded by council members — including four running against him in the Democratic primary — who had been much more aggressive about supporting the minimum wage hike. They included Vincent Orange, D-At Large, who

shepherded the bill to a council vote, and Tommy Wells, D-Ward 6, who introduced his own “living wage for all” bill earlier this year. While Gray called for a minimum wage increase on the day he vetoed a council bill mandating a special minimum wage for big retail chains, he refrained from endorsing any particular rate and called for months of study before moving forward. Only on the eve of council action did he endorse a $10 an hour rate, which would have been higher than the $9.50 rate expected to take effect this July, but would have fallen behind a year later, when the rate moves to $10.50. Gray made little mention of his earlier hesitance Wednesday: “I was delighted to be able to sign it,” he said. MIKE DeBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Poll: Most D.C. Residents Support Height Limit District residents oppose making changes to the century-old limits on building heights in the city by a wide margin, according to a new Washington Post poll. Sixty-one percent say they prefer to keep the current restrictions, while 37 percent favor allowing taller buildings. The strong sentiment against making any changes stands in contrast to the position taken in recent years by Mayor Vincent Gray, who has argued that the city needs to grow taller in some places to accommodate future growth.

Momentum for Marijuana In a major shift, D.C. residents strongly support legalizing pot

Decriminalization

Most D.C. residents support making pot legal; Colorado did earlier this month, and the buyers — one pictured in Denver — eagerly came out.

The proposal before the D.C. Council would eliminate criminal penalties for possession, instead fining violators $25, and allow for tickets of $100 for those caught smoking in public. Minors would also have a letter sent to their parents. The bill passed the public safety committee Wednesday.

Washington

Legalization THEO STROOMER (GETTY IMAGES)

Support for legalizing marijuana has expanded dramatically in the nation’s capital, with residents who were split evenly on the issue four years ago now favoring sales of the drug for personal use by a margin of almost 2 to 1, according to a new Washington Post poll. Washingtonians of every age, race and ethnicity — black and white, teenage and elderly — registered double-digit increases in support for legalization. Overall, 63 percent are in favor. Even among the 34 percent who oppose legalization, nearly half of them support relaxing punishment for marijuana possession to a fine of no more than $100. The survey comes amid growing momentum across the country to legalize pot. This month, Colorado allowed the first sales of the drug for recreational use, and the state of Washington is preparing to follow suit. Yet the poll places District residents significantly to the left of a more closely divided nation. A new, separate Washington PostABC News national poll this week shows voters coast-to-coast split 49 percent to 48 percent on the issue. Other national polls have shown higher support for legalization in the past year, but none as high as in the District. The numbers also come on the same day when a committee of D.C. lawmakers — led by council member and mayoral candidate Tommy Wells, D-Ward 6 — took the first major step in decades to loosen the city’s marijuana laws by advancing a bill to reduce the city’s penalty for possession of pot from $1,000 and

six months in jail to a $25 civil fine. If passed by the full council, the fine would amount to less than most parking tickets and would run counter to federal penalties for simple possession of $1,000 and one year in jail, which could still be enforced on the Mall and other federal properties within the District. A band of District activists has also filed a ballot initiative that could put the question of legalization before city voters in November. Majority support for legalization in the nation’s capital could hasten the arrival on the East Coast of a debate that has largely simmered in western states. Ballot measures in Alaska, Arizona, California and Oregon this year could legalize marijuana in a contiguous, 1,800-mile swath stretching from the nation’s border with Canada to Mexico. “There’s still a federal law that says it’s a no-no, and yet states are starting to legalize it,” said Richard Smith, 68, a Northwest businessman. “In my lifetime, what’s out West comes East. At this point, I think it’s inevitable.” The Post poll found that the dramatic expansion of support for legalization over the past four years was driven in part by a complete

The ballot initiative — for which supporters would have to gather signatures to qualify for the November ballot — would allow residents ages 21 or older to possess as much as 2 ounces of marijuana for personal use and grow up to three plants at home. The initiative would allow individuals to transfer, but not sell, up to 1 ounce of the drug and permit the use and sale of paraphernalia. Because of federal oversight of District governance, the measure would have to go to Congress for review if passed. (T WP)

reversal of opinion among African-Americans. In 2010, 37 percent were in favor of legalization and 55 percent were opposed. Now that number has flipped, with 58 percent of African-Americans in favor and 39 percent opposed. In the past, many older blacks have opposed legalization out of the fear that it could lead to addiction among black youths. But the change in opinion could reflect the effort by civil rights groups to call attention to the disproportionate arrest of African-Americans on pot charges. A study released by the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs in July said 9 out of 10 people arrested on the charge of simple drug possession in the city were black. “I don’t care one way or another about legalizing it,” said Renee Matthews, 49, a Northeast resident. “But it shouldn’t be criminalized if the penalties are harder for African-Americans.” A ARON C.

Daniel Beaty

A tribute to

AUTHOR AND STAR, ‘THE TALLEST TREE IN THE FOREST’

Before the benign celebrity activism of George Clooney and Bono came into vogue, there were the outspoken politics of Paul Robeson. The son of a slave, Robeson was a popular singer and actor whose career was stunted when his pro-union, anti-racism stance and Soviet sympathies landed him on a McCarthy-era blacklist. “My goal has been to delve in the heart and mind of Robeson,” says Daniel Beaty, author and star of “The Tallest Tree in the Forest,” a one-man musical tribute at Arena Stage in which he plays 40-plus characters. “This play asks, what was it about Robeson’s character, his journey and the people he met that caused him to choose activism at the expense of his art?”

NEXT THURSDAY! Jan 23, 8 pm Jack Everly, conductor The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra pays a loving tribute to its former Pops conductor Marvin Hamlisch. Jack Everly and the BSO SuperPops remember Marvin with smash hits from A Chorus Line, The Sting, The Way We Were and more.

How were you introduced to Paul Robeson?

Why write his life as a one-man show?

I first learned about him when I was a student of classical voice at Yale University. I have always loved to sing spirituals and Robeson has some of the best recordings. When I learned about the breadth of what he had accomplished, I became upset that I had never heard of him. None of my friends had heard of Robeson either.  

There was something bold and virtuosic about Robeson’s life and career. By portraying over 40 characters and singing 14 songs … I feel it somehow honors and mirrors the size of Robeson.

He is a complicated man with flaws and contradictions, like all people. The height of his fame as a black man enabled him to see what most could not. He felt clear about his perspective on the world and sacrificed everything for it. The more time I spend with him, the richer the work becomes.

Doesn’t it get lonely?

There is a huge family of dynamic artists gathered around this production. My director, Moises Kaufman, and I have been work-

“Artists who use their platforms to advocate for causes they believe in are embodying [Robeson’s] spirit.”

ing very closely for over two years at this point. So I don’t feel lonely. Is there a modern-day Robeson?

I believe artists who use their platforms to advocate for causes they believe in are embodying his spirit in some way. So what makes an artist a good activist?

Artists have a crucial role to play in social transformation. Not just in our ability to inspire with our art, but in what we understand about communication. The best artists are masters of empathy and human behavior. CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR E X PRES S)

and anthemic organ and horns. You only have to go as far as the title track, which subtly builds in intensity before a climactic burst of horns, to get the idea. For Flynn, 30, neither acting nor music is meant to put him on a path toward riches and fame. It’s an attitude he’s had since his earliest days as a musician, when he was in his late teens, living in England and playing in bands with his pals.

“I didn’t really have any commercial aspirations,” Flynn says. “I was really principled about it. I thought that as soon as you had some kind of goal and result in mind that it would kill it. … I kind of still do feel that way about it.” Now, however, Flynn, who comes from a family of actors and performers, is inching toward the spotlight. Roles in the upcoming films “Song One,” with Anne Hathaway, and “Sils Maria,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Kristen Stewart, mean a new level of

Yet success is something Flynn is still coming to terms with. “I get a kick out of turning things down,” he says, of acting gigs. Still, his anti-commercialism stance — something that comes from anti-folk’s punk-like do-ityourself ethos — has softened in recent years. And regardless of what the tour and the films do for Flynn’s career, there’s one thing he’s planning to keep constant in both his music and acting. “ W h e t h e r o r n o t w e ge t known,” he says of his band, “the thing I’ve worked quite hard at is taking each thing really seriously.” JON WOLPER (FOR E XPRESS)

‘The Square’: This film proves that the simplest form of documentary — footage shot as stuff happens, sometimes by the people it’s happening to — can be amazingly effective. It’s about a small group of Egyptian friends who find themselves on opposing political sides during the nation’s recent period of revolution. With filmmakers that don’t flinch when things turn violent, “The Square” (which Netflix starts streaming on Friday) is a powerful and very human look at unfolding history.

1 Mrs. Robinson Anne Bancroft set the standard for forbidden women in 1967’s “The Graduate,” both in terms of sexiness and tortuous logistics: She’s married to Ben’s (Dustin Hoffman) dad’s business partner.

2 Daisy Suckley FDR is a ladies’ man in 2012’s “Hyde Park on Hudson,” an inaccurate portrayal of his relationships with multiple women, particularly Laura Linney’s sweet-natured Daisy.

3 Viola de Lesseps It’s not until well into 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love” that Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) finds out Will has a wife. But she’s cheating on her fiance, so she’s not in a great place to judge.

4 John Gage Men can be the bit on the side, too, especially when they look like Robert Redford and will drop a million bucks for a night with someone else’s wife. “Indecent Proposal” came out in 1993, so he’d have to spend about $600,000 more today, owing to inflation.

5 Sabrina Fairchild In both the 1954 and 1995 versions of “Sabrina,” an ugly duckling turns into a swan hot enough to turn the head of her childhood crush — who’s engaged. So it’s on to the older brother!

A local tour guide reveals that many beloved D.C. tales fall short of the truth If you weren’t already mad at D.C. tour guides for clogging sidewalks with eighth graders in matching shirts, you can curse them for spreading lies. “We like telling good stories, even if they aren’t quite true,” says local tour guide Robert Pohl. “I almost certainly propagated some before I started being more careful about researching what I talk about,” he says. In “Urban Legends & Historic Lore of Washington, D.C.,” Pohl sought the truth. Here are some of his favorite debunked myths, which he’ll also discuss at Politics and Prose on Sunday.

The Existence of a ‘Hoof Code’

SATURDAY, JANUARY 25TH MOTOWN LEGEND

In D.C., an equestrian statue’s stance does not provide clues as to how its rider died, Pohl says. In Gettysburg National Military Park, however, most of the horse statues do follow a pattern whereby people who died in battle ride horses with two hooves on the ground, while those who were merely injured sit on animals with three feet planted on terra firma. “It seems to be a coincidence, though,” Pohl says.

Why There’s No J Street

Many tour guides claim that the District’s planner, Pierre L’Enfant, left out J Street because he was feuding with Supreme Court justice John Jay. It’s more likely, however, that the street was skipped because I and J were considered interchangeable at the time, Pohl says: “Dictionaries from the late 1700s didn’t even have different sections for I and J.”

D.C. Was Built on a Swamp The image of the nation’s capital being constructed atop a fetid cesspool may ring true, but it’s factually incorrect. “There was a swampy area called Swampoodle near Union Station, but less than one percent of D.C. was swampland when the federal government moved here in 1800,” Pohl says.

Georgetowners Refused a Metro Station Popular lore has it that short-sighted Georgetown residents objected to a Metro stop for fear that easier access to the neighborhood would lure riffraff, but no station was ever planned, Pohl found: “Metro was really designed to be a commuter rail, to bring people from the suburbs into the [center of the] city.”

The Origin of the Word ‘Lobbyist’ Sorry, Willard Hotel. Though political advocates may have loitered in the your lobby hoping to chat with President Ulysses S. Grant, the political use of the word “lobby” dates back to 1640, when regular British folks talked with their representatives in the lobbies of the House of Commons, according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

Stage In “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the 2011 erotic novel read by millions, Anastasia Steele tries to find happiness with Christian Grey, a billionaire with a fondness for paddling. In the touring “50 Shades! The Musical,” at Warner Theatre this weekend, Ana does all that while singing songs such as “How Much Can I Take?” and the earnestly delivered, double-entendre-laden “There’s a Hole Inside of Me.” (Example lyric: “I’ve got sugar and tea, but no cream in my cup.”) While Ana (Eileen Patterson) is at the center of the book, the show spends equal time on the “Book Club Ladies.” The three serve as a Greek chorus for Ana’s story; in the real world, they learn about themselves as their discussions suddenly involve toys that aren’t for kids and knots they don’t teach in the Boy Scouts. There’s Pam (Tiffany Dissette), who is “definitely the most sexually charged of the three,” Dissette says. It’s Pam’s idea to read “Fifty Shades” in book club. Bev (Alexis Field, who says her character is “looking for a little spice in her love life”) and Carol (Sheila O’Connor) round out the trio. As the ladies read about Ana’s adventures, it’s up to Patterson and Jack Boice, as Christian, to provide the action. “Ana is so naive and so innocent,” Patterson says. “I take that to the extreme, so she’s like a parody of a Disney princess.” (Patterson played Cinderella and Rapunzel on a Disney

cruise line, so she has some experience.) Eventually, Ana discovers that a little hot candle wax is a small price to pay for the man she loves. It’s a fairy tale come true! Musicals are already unreal, since people rarely burst into song no matter how in love they are. Adding parody slaps on another layer. The trick, the cast agrees, is to take it all seriously. “Comedy doesn’t come from the actors being like, ‘Watch me! I’m funny!’ ” Dissette says. “Funny comes from the actors going ‘Watch me, I’m

being completely serious doing this completely stupid thing.’ ” The “stupid things” often involve writhing or cheesy dancing or both, but O’Connor thinks that the show can offer something more than laughs and a little titillation. (The sex isn’t explicit and the nudity only suggested.) “We talk about how nice it must be for the women who see the show to have a wonderful way to start a conversation” about sex, O’Connor says. “They bring their boyfriends or their husbands and, when they laugh about it, it’s easier to talk about.”

Characters Carol, Pam and Bev join with Ana, on table, in exploring the more painful side of love. (The “50 Shades” touring cast rotates, so these aren’t the actors you’ll see this weekend).

Beats With Brains

KUMAIL NANJIANI?

When new late-night comedy programs “@Midnight” and “The Pete Holmes Show” debuted a week apart in October, both series tapped the same guy as the first guest. Kumail Nanjiani, a self-effacing, nerdy Los Angeles comic, isn’t quite a household name, but that’s changing, thanks to his upcoming projects. First, though, he’ll share the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse stage with friend and fellow stand-up Jonah Ray on Friday.

‘Portlandia’ State of Mind Nanjiani is best known for his recurring role on IFC’s “Portlandia” as the salesman who won’t stop asking questions. In Season 1, he sold Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen a convoluted cellphone plan. Then, he was a waiter at a restaurant with 80 dishes. Most recently, he played something called a “birthday loan officer.”

The Gamer Life With his wife, Emily Gordon, Nanjiani co-hosts “The Indoor Kids,” a podcast where the couple and guests play video games and discuss gaming culture.

Television Takeover Nanjiani and Ray will co-host Comedy Central’s “The Meltdown,” premiering later this year. The stand-up showcase is based on the weekly live show the pair curates at L.A.’s Meltdown Comics. Nanjiani will also appear on HBO’s new Mike Judge series about tech billionaires, “Silicon Valley,” starting in April.

Oneohtrix Point Never makes harmony out of disparate sounds and elaborate techniques

Inside Track Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Americans,” off last year’s “R Plus Seven,” exemplifies Daniel Lopatin’s erratic sonic tendencies. The song’s tight passages snake around each other and diverge seemingly at will. Lopatin says the stark contrast between segments reminds you that you are listening to something, which mimics the very act of listening. “When you listen to a record, you’re also listening to yourself listen to a record,” Lopatin says. “There’s this other layer of perceptive stuff that influences what you hear and the way you think about things.” D.L.

Music Daniel Lopatin greets confusion with a smile. As Oneohtrix Point Never, the 31-year-old Brooklyn-based musician makes records that mirror his perception of our loud, perplexing world. A former data archivist, Lopatin combs through sounds like data sets. “R Plus Seven,” his latest album of brainy electronic music, is filled with distinct noises in constant conversation — or argument — with one another. In his head, monosyllabic vocals, tractor beams, animal grunts and synthesized choir melodies all make sense together. “I’m basically trying to create something the way I perceive the world to be, like how it sounds and how it moves,” Lopatin says. “It’s most exciting to me when [the sounds] start to overlap or create different relationships between each other.” For the listener, the results can be hypnotic and disorienting. Many songs on “R Plus Seven” can resemble dance music, before they take arrhythmic detours through non-musical noises — or even periods of silence — mid-song. “I want it to be an interesting marriage of the hypnotic aspect of electronic music and the totally asocial, almost sculptural aspect of electronic music,” Lopatin says. “There’s no reason not to create asymmetry all the time.” Lopatin, who helped score Sofia Coppola’s 2013 film “The Bling Ring” with composer Brian Reitzell, uses a writing and recording process that will make your head spin. For “R Plus Seven,” he created initial melodies on synthesizers, then reinterpreted and randomized them using his own mix of digital and manual processing techniques. Lopatin derived many of the vocal snippets on “R Plus Seven” by having text-tospeech software read scripts from textadventure computer games, which

he then converted to playable musical scales. Given the nature of his music, Lopatin says Oneohtrix Point Never’s live show is more conducive to a formal concert space (like the Atlas Performing Arts Center, where he’ll hit the stage Sunday), because the audience is often more attentive than they might be at a rock club. “With this set of music and the way that we incorporate video, [the show is] definitely more of a thing to focus on and consider,” Lopatin says. “It’s a combination of DJing and crazy, improvised electronic stuff.” For the tour, Lopatin is working alongside video collaborator, sculptor and 3-D animator Nate Boyce to create an immersive audio-visual experience. Boyce will react to the music in real time by morphing his computergenerated sculptures based on what Lopatin plays. “A lot of it is about marrying our common ideas about sculpture and music,” Lopatin says. “It’s super hypnotic and really beautiful. Each [of Boyce’s objects] is so specifically crafted that you can just stare at it forever.” DREW LITOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

King of Second Chances Manning hasn’t lost twice in a row to the same team since ’07 NFL From rematches to revivals to redemption, it’s not a good idea to bet against Peyton Manning when it comes to second chances. He has 97 touchdown throws since hooking up with John Elway in Denver two years ago after the Indianapolis Colts released him when neck troubles clouded his football future.

After dispatching San Diego on Sunday on the anniversary of last year’s crushing loss to Baltimore in eerily similar circumstances, Manning stands one win from a shot at becoming the first quarterback to win Super Bowls with two franchises. Standing in his way are Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, who beat the Broncos 34-31 in overtime in November. Thing is, it’s been six years since Manning lost a rematch to a team that beat him earlier in the season. The Broncos (14-3) lost just once at home this season, when they became the highest-scoring team in the Super Bowl era, propelled by Manning’s record 55 TD throws and 5,447 yards through the air. That was back on Dec. 12, when they were upset by San Diego, a loss they avenged Sunday by beating the Chargers 24-17. The last time Manning lost twice in a row to the same team was in 2007, when the Colts lost 23-21 at

San Diego in November and then dropped a 28-24 heartbreaker at home in the wild-card playoffs. Since then, Manning has won five straight rematches, including the AFC championship against the Jets 30-17 following the 2009 season, avenging a 29-15 loss in Week 16 that ended the Colts’ shot at a perfect season. It took a vintage performance from Manning on Sunday to keep that streak going. After controlling the game for 3½ quarters, the Broncos allowed 17 fourth-quarter points. The Broncos were facing thirdand-17 from their own 20 with three minutes left and Rivers loosening up his right arm on the Chargers sideline, ready for his chance to tie this one just like the Ravens had a year earlier on their way to a 38-35 win in double-overtime. “It was deja vu,” Elway, now the Broncos’ executive vice president, said on his weekly podcast on the team’s website Tuesday. As Manning took the snap and stepped up, the pocket began to collapse around him, but he spotted tight end Julius Thomas open along the Broncos sideline. The pass was perfect, as was Thomas’ tap dance until his momentum took him out of bounds at the 41. Then, on third-and-6 from his 45, Manning hit Thomas for a 9-yard gain over the middle with 2:12 left. A year ago, then-offensive coordinator Mike McCoy called for a run by undersized Ronnie Hillman on third-and-7 at about the same point in the game, which in turn led to Joe Flacco’s 70-yard touchdown heave to Jacoby Jones over Rahim Moore with 31 seconds left. Manning made good on last week’s second chance. Will he do the same Sunday? ARNIE STAPLETON (AP)

Where’s Brady?: Tom Brady has taken time off from practice before the New England Patriots play the AFC

championship game against the Denver Broncos. Backup quarterback Ryan Mallett says Brady missed the full practice Wednesday. But Mallett says he’s not worried about the star quarterback’s availability for Sunday’s game. Brady had a cold last week and then led the Patriots to a 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC divisional round. (AP)

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw won the Cy Young Award in 2011 and 2013.

Kershaw Agrees to $215M Deal MLB A person familiar with the deal says pitcher Clayton Kershaw has agreed to a $215 million, sevenyear contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a deal that makes the two-time Cy Young Award winner baseball’s first player with a $30 million average salary. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the agreement had not yet been announced. Kershaw, 25, receives the most lucrative deal for a pitcher, breaking the mark of $180 million set by Justin Verlander last March for his seven-year contract with Detroit. The average salary of $30.7 million tops the previous high of $27.5 million, set by the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez as part of a 10-year agreement December 2007. While Roger Clemens had a contract with a listed salary of $28 million with the Yankees in 2007, he joined the team in June and actually made $17.4 million. RONALD BLUM (AP)

McVay Promoted to Run Offense

Mike Zimmer has been the Bengals defensive coordinator the past six seasons.

Reports: Zimmer Hired by Vikings 57-year-old has spent the last 14 years as a defensive coordinator NFL The Minnesota Vikings have chosen Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer as their new head coach, according to multiple media reports. Zimmer will replace Leslie Frazier, who was fired after the team finished 5-10-1 this season. Zimmer will be the ninth head coach in the franchise’s 54-year history, according to reports that emerged Wednesday. General manager Rick Spielman interviewed at least seven candidates for the job including Zimmer, who spent Tuesday at Vikings headquarters. Zimmer, 57, has been an NFL defensive coordinator for the last 14 seasons, six with the Bengals. He has 20 years as an NFL assistant on his résumé.

One Opening Left Browns owner Jimmy Haslam sent a letter to Cleveland fans explaining the team’s “methodical” actions in the coaching search that has dragged into its third week. Haslam fired coach Rob Chudzinski last month following his first season, forcing the Browns to look for their seventh full-time coach since 1999. The owner said the team has spoken to a “number of outstanding candidates” and indicated the Browns will meet with assistant coaches currently in the playoffs. (AP)

Zimmer also interviewed for the vacancy in Tennessee, which went to Ken Whisenhunt. He has been a candidate for the top job several times in the past, too, including with Cleveland, Miami and Tampa Bay. The Bengals were third in the league in yards allowed and fifth in points against this season. (AP)

The Redskins finalized the contract of offensive coordinator Sean McVay, making official what had been expected for nearly a week. Following the hiring of Jay Gruden as coach, people with knowledge of the situation said that McVay — previously Washington’s tight ends coach — would be promoted to offensive coordinator. Gruden didn’t commit to that move when asked about it last week at his introductory news conference. He said only that he planned to talk to a number of coaches for the positions on his staff. Five days later, the Redskins have finalized the 27-year-old McVay’s contract. Redskins players last week praised McVay for his knowledge and communication skills. They expressed confidence in his ability

George Washington’s Maurice Creek is averaging a team-high 14.1 points a game.

College Basketball George Washington coach Mike Lonergan said he spent a lot of time talking to those who knew Maurice Creek when the former Indiana player expressed interest in transferring to Foggy Bottom. Despite a record of 13-17 last season, Lonergan liked the team chemistry on the young squad, and the third-year coach did not want to upset that balance. But in the end, at least on the court, it is graduate student Creek who has made adjustments to fit in with the Colonials. “They told me to be more aggressive than I was at IU,” said Creek, who grew up in Oxon Hill, Md. “That is what I wanted to do for this team, be aggressive at the offensive end and the defensive end. I am glad to be here.” The feeling is certainly mutual as GW is 14-3 overall and 2-1 in the Atlantic 10 after a 76-66 win over VCU on Tuesday. The Rams were nationally ranked to start the season and were the preseason favorite in the conference. A 6-foot-5 guard, Creek leads the team in scoring at 14.1 points

per game. In 54 career games with the Hoosiers, he averaged 7.2 points — though he was dogged by injuries for most of his four years at Indiana. Creek said the transfer to GW has gone better than he could have imagined. “I did not expect it to be [so good] like this. It is a blessing for me,” said Creek, who’s enrolled in GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development. While Creek has gotten a lion’s share of credit for the team’s turnaround, the play of sophomores Joe McDonald, Kethan Savage, Patricio Garino and Kevin Larsen has grabbed his attention. “The biggest surprise [to me] is how well the sophomores have done,” Creek said. “All of those guys have grown up from last year.” The Colonials were picked to finish 10th out of 13 teams in the preseason by Atlantic 10 coaches and media personnel. But GW received votes for the Associated Press top 25 poll this week. “A lot of people didn’t think we would be [highly rated], but here we are,” Creek said. DAVID DRIVER (FOR E XPRESS)

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi lets slip that her reality show is scripted 27

Inside a Mixed-Up Mind NICK BRIGGS/CRAIG BLANKENHORN

E.L. Doctorow’s new novel examines what’s behind time, tragedy and memory

E.L. Doctorow’s main character in “Andrew’s Brain” wrestles with his own consciousness.

Books

Tortured Queens

MELANIE BURFORD (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Novelist E.L. Doctorow admits that he wants readers of his new novel, “Andrew’s Brain,” ($26.00, Random House) an enigmatic wonder that hit shelves Wednesday, to struggle a bit. “I do think this book, more than most, is one that judges its readers,” Doctorow says. “If someone is looking for ordinary formulaic fiction, this is not it.” In “Andrew’s Brain,” Doctorow abandons the mostly linear storytelling form that distinguished his earlier and much-celebrated literary novels, such as the precisely woven best-sellers “The March” and “The Book of Daniel.” “My sense of what a book should be has changed so radically — I like to think for the better,” he says. The novel, which somersaults through time and perspective, is mainly built upon an extended conversation between a misfortune-plagued cognitive scientist named Andrew and a frequently befuddled questioner he sometimes calls “Doc.” He likes playing with iterations and reiterations. Andrew first spots his future wife while she is doing a handstand at the small college where he’s teaching. In the book’s climactic scene — spoiler alert — Andrew suddenly does a handstand in the Oval Office, alarm-

ing the Secret Service. “All of these things sort of light up each other,” he says. “Andrew’s Brain” was triggered by dual memories: an image of a little girl coloring and an emotional conversation Doctorow had with a friend who confided that he had inadvertently killed his child. Over drinks one night, the man told Doctorow about the child dying in his arms after he administered an incorrect medicine with an eye dropper. The travails of his friend — a decent man connected to a string of tragedies — informed Doctorow’s portrait of Andrew. “It is dangerous to stare into

“My sense of what a book should be has changed so radically — I like to think for the better.” yourself,” Andrew says. “You pass through endless mirrors of self-estrangement. This too is the brain’s cunning, that you are not to know yourself.” A ndrew wrestles with the nature of his own consciousness. “It’s a kind of jail, the brain’s mind,” he says. The brain, he postulates,

can pretend to be the soul. D o c t o r o w s u g ge s t s t h a t Andrew’s brain “does things before he can stop it from doing them.” But he’s hesitant to impose an interpretation, hoping that readers will arrive at their own conclusions. “The nature of good fiction is that it dwells in ambiguity,” he says. With the passage of time, Doctorow predicts, readers will be less concerned with identifying the characters and will be left with something deeper. “What they will see is a statement of moral insufficiency as it’s attached to power,” he says. MANUEL ROIG-FRANZIA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Wale’s Ready for His Close-Up: Revolt, the music network launched by Sean “Diddy” Combs last

October, will premiere a documentary about Wale, left, on Monday. The network’s crew went along with the D.C.based rapper when he trekked to Nigeria, where his family is from, in November. “Wale: I Am From” is the network’s first documentary special and airs Monday at 10 p.m., followed by a live Ustream with Wale at 11 p.m. (E XPRESS)

They have so much in common: features a bit askew, weak chins, literary goals, tortured souls. But who’s more anguished: newspaper columnist Lady Edith of “Downton Abbey” or aspiring memoirist Hannah of “Girls”? Parents problems: Hannah: Stopped subsidizing her but adore her. Edith: Pay all expenses but pity her as doomed never to wed. Mental health: Hannah: Debilitating OCD keeps her from By Marc meeting deadlines Silver (although this season, therapy and meds have helped). Edith: Inferiority complex due to gorgeous sisters and dismissive dad (“You have nothing of importance to say; you’re a woman”). Self-image woes: Hannah: “I am 13 pounds overweight and it has been awful for me my whole life.” Edith: Portrayed by Fred Armisen in drag on Jimmy Fallon’s spoof. Romantic life: Hannah: Once dated a guy who “treats my heart like monkey meat.” Edith: Boyfriend has mentally ill wife. The winner (or loser): Edith’s extremely tortured soul. Spoiler alert: Season four holds more woes for poor middle child Edith. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse

“The fact that so many of these places serve BBQ on nachos makes me think your readers may not really understand what nachos are all about.” — COMMENTER THEONEONTHELEFT AT DC.EATER.COM critiques a list of the

D.C. area’s best plates of nachos, according to readers of the food blog Eater. Out of the 16 places on the list, five serve BBQ-flavored nachos: Alexandria’s Southside 815, Arlington’s Red Hot & Blue, D.C.’s Smoke & Barrel and American Ice Company, and Andrew Evans BBQ Joint in Easton, Md. What do you think about BBQ on nachos? Tweet us @WaPoExpress to let us know.

“I love the look on Ryan’s face. He’s like: ‘How did they know?!?’ ” — COMMENTER SMEDLYBUTLER AT GAWKER .COM reacts to Rep. Paul Ryan reading

a mean tweet about himself. The congressman read the tweet — “Paul Ryan has such pretty blue eyes, sometimes it’s easy to forget he’s Satan incarnate” — in a new comedy project by NowThisNews called “DC Mean Tweets,” in which members of Congress recite negative tweets about themselves on camera. So far, there are three videos with tweets about and read by Ryan, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. David Vitter and Sen. Claire McCaskill, among others.

“With palm trees lining a promenade bathed in soft sunlight, it is easy to imagine that you are strolling along a beach on the Cote D’Azur.” — MALCOLM FOLLEY AT DAILYMAIL.CO.UK

describes the setting for this year’s Winter Olympics. Sochi, Russia, a city known more for its subtropical climate (temperatures commonly remain in the 60s throughout its mild winter) will host the games starting Feb. 7. While natural snow is unlikely to fall in Russia’s warmest region, Folley says the Russians have a plan: “Incredibly, vast warehouses have stored up 450,000 cubic metres of snow from last year.” This gives new meaning to the term “snow bank,” eh?

“Much like crack cocaine, the charm of narcissists produces an intense but short-lived high.” — TOMAS CHAMORRO-PREMUZIC AT BLOGS. HBR.ORG uses an interesting

simile to describe why we initially love narcissists. Chamorro-Premuzic writes that most narcissists come off as charming and charismatic on first impression. However, research shows that initial charm wears off after just 2½ hours, morphing into characteristics that are much more negative such as deluded selfadmiration, defensive arrogance and moral disengagement. Yikes.

“As with so much else in the English language, William Shakespeare gets the credit.” — LAKSHMI GANDHI AT NPR .ORG uncovers the origin

of the slang word “crib” that’s used today to define a house or apartment. Gandhi cites the Oxford English Dictionary, which notes “crib” was used for the first time in Shakespeare’s “Henry VI, Part 1,” written in 1597, to mean “a small dwelling.” Clearly, if “MTV Cribs” is its latest iteration, the word has been pimped since then.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ll make someone a bargain, and the way you see it through is sure to impress everyone around you. You are unusually creative. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The external political climate may not be conducive to change, but you can make important changes at home whenever you like. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Sharing with family makes the day much more important to you than it already is. You have something to remember. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can connect with those who share your aspirations. Focus on doing things to get started. An answer to a tricky question surprises you.

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have to change your plans because of external forces. They may not affect you in ways that are easy to spot. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’re hearing much the same thing from those who support you and those who are speaking out against you. What’s the common denominator?
