Archdiocese’s Sins Come to Light After a boy reported in 1979 that a priest raped him and later threatened him at gunpoint to keep quiet, the Archdiocese of Chicago assured the boy’s parents that although the cleric avoided prosecution, he would receive treatment and have no further contact with minors. But the Rev. William Cloutier, who already had been accused of molesting other children, was returned to ministry a year later and accused of more abuse before he resigned in 1993, two years after the boy’s parents filed a lawsuit. Officials took no action against

Family of Dead SeaWorld Trainer Responds to Film Orlando, Fla. The family of a SeaWorld trainer who died in 2010 when a killer whale pulled her into the water responded Tuesday to a documentary critical of animal captivity at the marine parks, saying the woman killed would never have worked there for 15 years if she thought the whales were treated badly. Trainer Dawn Brancheau’s family members said on the website for The Dawn Brancheau Foundation that they’ve been repeatedly asked about how they feel about the documentary “Blackfish” since its release last year. They say they continue to support her former co-workers. Brancheau was grabbed and drowned by the 6-ton killer whale, Tilikum, after a show in February 2010. The documentary examines Tilikum’s background and is critical of keeping whales in captivity. MIKE SCHNEIDER (AP)

In one 1989 letter to the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, the Rev. Raymond Goedert worries about parishioners discovering the record of the Rev. Vincent E. McCaffrey, who was moved four times because of abuse allegations. “Unfortunately, one of the key parishioners … received an anonymous phone call which made reference by name to Vince and alleged misconduct on his part with young boys,” Goedert wrote. “We all agreed that the best thing would be for Vince to move. We don’t know if the anonymous caller will strike again.” (AP)

Cloutier over his earliest transgressions because he “sounded repentant,” according to internal archdiocese documents released Tuesday that show how the archdiocese tried to contain a mounting scandal over child sexual abuse. For decades, those at the highest levels of the nation’s third-largest archdiocese moved accused priests from parish to parish while hiding the clerics’ histories from the public.

The documents, released through settlements between attorneys for the archdiocese and victims, describe how the late Cardinals John Cody and Joseph Bernardin often approved the reassignments. The archdiocese removed some priests from ministry, but often years or decades after the clergy were known to have molested children. While disturbing stories of clergy sexual abuse have wrenched the

Salt Lake City The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the state of Utah over the issue of gay marriage, saying the official decision to stop granting benefits for newly married samesex couples has created wrenching uncertainty. The lawsuit filed Tuesday says the state has put hundreds of gay and lesbian couples in legal limbo and prevented them from getting key protections for themselves and their children. “They’ve put a giant question mark over the lives of all these people that have married,” said John Mejia, legal director for the ACLU in Utah. Utah governor’s spokesman Marty Carpenter responded by saying that Gov. Gary Herbert “has said throughout this process that his responsibility is to follow the law. That is exactly what the administration is doing, and we respect the rights of those who disagree to take their grievances before a judge.”

Poll: Obama NSA Speech Fell Flat Washington

Americans React to President’s Proposals

If President Barack Obama thought he was going to move the needle with his speech on the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs last week, he was sorely mistaken. A new Pew Research Center poll shows not only that most A mericans didn’t pay at tention but also that those who did don’t think Obama’s proposals will change anything.

According to the Pew poll conducted Jan. 17-19 (other questions were posed Jan. 15-19), 8 percent of Americans have “heard a lot” about President Barack Obama’s NSA proposals, while 41 percent have “heard a little.” Of these groups:

Low Expectations for Syrian Peace Talks In nearly the same breath, the world’s most powerful diplomats have talked about the importance of this week’s peace conference on Syria and downplayed expectations for a breakthrough. The time frame for the talks is a week to 10 days, and then a break — but for what, and for how long? Syria’s Western-backed opposition and President Bashar Assad’s handpicked representatives have never spoken face-to-face and it’s not at all clear how much either side — or their proxy powerbrokers — really want an end to the war that has killed more than 130,000. Here’s a look at some of the participants as the conference opens today.

Rebel Coalition

Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose soldiers have notched up recent military victories, points to the ascendancy of Islamic militants to temper Western enthusiasm for the rebels. He has said he won’t step down and may run again as president later this year. Still, by agreeing to meet them, Assad for the first time has acknowledged an opposition that he has long derided and dismissed as “terrorists.” Complicating matters, three prominent international war-crimes experts said they had received a huge cache of photographs documenting the killing of some 11,000 detainees by Syrian authorities. David Crane, one of the three experts, said that the cache provides strong evidence for charging Assad for crimes against humanity.

Syria’s Western-backed Syrian National Coalition wants a transitional government to replace Assad, reiterating Tuesday that it finally decided to attend the peace conference in order to establish a transitional government with full executive powers “in which killers and criminals do not participate.” Still, the fractured coalition’s ineptitude has cost it the support of most ordinary Syrians as well as a majority of the armed rebels, who reject the talks, making it unclear who exactly the coalition will represent at the talks. The rebels have been plagued by fighting between moderate and Islamist factions. Al-Qaeda-linked groups initially joined forces with moderate rebels at the start of the conflict. But those groups began trying to impose their strict interpretation of Islamic law, alienating other factions and leading to infighting.

Russia, one of Assad’s biggest allies, has shielded his regime from U.N. sanctions and continued to supply it with weapons throughout the war. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the U.N.’s decision to rescind Iran’s invitation to the talks was a mistake, but not a “catastrophe.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has said Assad cannot be part of a political solution in Syria, as his opponents would never stop fighting him. He also said the U.S. is “not out of options” to increase pressure on the Syrian government if it doesn’t cooperate.

Chasing Black Widows Russia has a history of terrorist attacks carried out by women Moscow Russian security officials are hunting down three potential female suicide bombers, one of whom is believed to be in Sochi, where the Winter Olympics will begin next month. The search for the women suspected of planning terrorist attacks at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics has raised one of Russia’s most feared specters — the female suicide bombers known as “black widows.” For more than a decade, women have committed many of Russia’s worst terror attacks, downing airliners, blowing up subway cars and killing people going to a rock concert.

Who Are They? The term “black widow” refers to the belief that these women took the desperate step of becoming suicide bombers in order to avenge husbands or male relatives killed in Russia’s fight against Islamic

The Sochi Threat Police leaflets at a Sochi hotel on Tuesday contained warnings about three potential suicide bombers. A police letter said that one of them, a widow of an Islamic militant, was in Sochi. “We know some of them got through the perimeter,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, who is in Sochi. “She’s for real. What we don’t know is how many more black widows are out there.” (AP)

militants in the Caucasus region. But there have been cases where the bombers’ husbands were alive at the time of their attacks, and one failed bomber said it was shame and a lack of money that drove her to terrorism.

Their History One of the earliest attacks to draw attention to female terrorists was the 2002 mass hostage-taking at a Moscow theater by Chechen mili-

tants — 19 of the 41 attackers were women. The crisis ended with Russian forces pumping narcotic gas into the theater, killing all the attackers and at least 130 of the approximately 850 hostages. In 2003, two women blew themselves up at the entrance gate to a Moscow outdoor rock concert, killing 14 people. In the first wave of a shocking series of attacks in 2004, two Russian airliners were brought down with bombs on the same night, killing a total of 89 people. Authorities said both of the bombers were women, and one had a brother who had disappeared in Chechnya.

A Mixed Record Two women planning to wear suicide belts to Red Square on New Year’s Eve 2010 were foiled by a simple error. Their bombs were to be set off when their handler sent text messages to the cellphones connected to the bombs. But before then, one of the phones received a spam message, blowing up one female bomber up. The plot leader and the surviving woman were arrested. NATALIYA VASILYE VA (AP)

Holocaust Ties May End Purple Line Bid A French company’s past could keep it off the light-rail project Washington The majority owner of a Paris-based company competing to build and operate the light-rail Purple Line between Montgomery and Prince George’s counties was the target of a Maryland law requiring that firms disclose any ties to the Holocaust when bidding on rail contracts. Societe Nationale des Chemins de Fer Francais (SNCF) owns 70 percent of Keolis, part of one of the four private consortiums recently

chosen by the Maryland Department of Transportation to bid on a Purple Line public-private partnership. Historians say SNCF was paid to transport 76,000 Jews and other prisoners to Nazi death camps in World War II. Some Holocaust survivors say SNCF shouldn’t benefit from U.S. government contracts until it pays reparations to the thousands of people it delivered to Nazi camps in stifling, unsanitary cattle cars or their survivors. SNCF’s chairman issued a formal apology to Holocaust victims in 2011. At stake is a 35-year contract valued at more than $6 billion to design, build, operate, maintain

“It is reprehensible for this company, which put me on a deportation train bound for Auschwitz … to now seek public contracts.” — LEO BRE THOLZ, 92, WHO ESCAPED FROM A RAIL CAR DURING THE HOLOCAUST THAT WAS OPERATED BY SOCIETE NATIONALE DES CHEMINS DE FER FRANCAIS, A FRENCH COMPANY THAT OWNS A STAKE IN ONE OF THE FOUR PRIVATE CONSORTIUMS CHOSEN BY MARYLAND TO BID ON THE PURPLE LINE’S CONSTRUCTION

and help finance the $2.2 billion Purple Line. It would be one of the single biggest contracts ever awarded in Maryland and the state’s first public-private partnership on a transit project. It is unclear whether the 2011 Maryland law would apply to the

Purple Line bidding process, which is scheduled to award a contract by early 2015. The law was written specifically to address a 2011 bid by Keolis to operate two MARC commuter rail lines, according to two people who participated in the law’s passage.

The 16-mile Purple Line, which would connect Bethesda with New Carrollton via streetcars, would be owned by the Maryland Transit Administration. However, it would not be part of its MARC system. The law does not prevent companies with ties to the Holocaust from bidding on, or winning, state contracts. David Paulson, a spokesman for Maryland’s attorney general, said the office is “looking into” whether the 2011 law would apply to the Purple Line bids. Maryland is believed to be the only state that requires companies to disclose their Holocaust ties in rail bids. K AT HER INE S H AV ER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Germantown, Md. A Montgomery County prosecutor said Tuesday that the Germantown mother accused of killing two of her children and wounding two others during a purported exorcism called herself the commander of a group known as the “demon assassins.” Zakieya Avery, 28, and another woman accused in the killings, Monifa Sanford, 21, both considered themselves members of the group, Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy said in court. The pair is accused of fatally stabbing Avery’s younger children — a boy, Norell Harris, 1, and a girl, Zyana Harris, 2, whose bod-

ies were found Friday morning on their mother’s bed in their Germantown townhouse, police said. Another daughter, Taniya Harris, 5, and a son, Martello Harris, 8, were seriously wounded. The women believed that the children were possessed by demons, police said. McCarthy said Aver y f irst attacked Norell, trying to snap his neck and choke him. She then directed Sanford to bring a knife, and they stabbed the child, the prosecutor said. The women thought that evil spirits had begun to jump from Norell into the older children, and eventually into Sanford, he said. McCarthy asked that both women undergo mental health evaluations to determine whether they are competent to stand trial. Each is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

A makeshift memorial sits in front of the home where the two children were killed.

A judge ordered the mental health evaluation for Avery and that she be held without bond. He postponed a hearing for Sanford, who also is being held without bond, because it was not clear

which attorneys will represent her. Avery, who appeared by closedcircuit video from the county jail, has a history of mental illness and had once been involuntarily committed, McCarthy said. A jail

employee said an initial evaluation indicated evidence of psychotic thinking and delusions. McCarthy said the women initially planned to conduct an exorcism on an adult male named Troy that night. The women said they had performed exorcisms before, but that none ever became violent. When Troy didn’t show up they became convinced that at least one of the children was possessed, McCarthy said. The relationship between Avery and Sanford is unclear, but both lived in the townhouse with the children. The deadly scene was discovered Friday morning when officers came to the townhouse after a neighbor spotted a bloody knife and a car with an open door just outside. The woman said she had heard noises in the night. DAN MORSE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

McDonnell, Wife Indicted in Gifts Scandal Va.’s ex-governor, first lady were charged with 14 felony counts Richmond Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government. Authorities alleged that McDonnell and his wife received gifts from Jonnie Williams again and again, lodging near constant requests for money, clothes, trips, golf accessories and private plane rides. In exchange, authorities alleged

that the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governorship to Williams’ struggling company, a small former cigarette manufacturer that now sells dietary supplements. The two were charged with 14 felony counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, obtaining property under color of their official office and conspiring to do the same. A lawyer for McDonnell released a statement from the former governor denying that he has broken the law. “I deeply regret accepting legal gifts and loans from Mr. Williams, all of which have been repaid with interest,” he said. “I have apologized for my poor judgment for which I take full responsibility.

ically that I did nothing illegal for Mr. Williams in exchange for what I believed was his personal generosity and friendship.” He promised to “use every available resource and advocate” to “fight these false allegations.” McDonnell, 59, is the first governor ever to face criminal charg-

es in a state that has prided itself on a history of relatively ethically clean politics. McDonnell’s indictment comes in the midst of the General Assembly’s annual legislative session and is likely to accelerate efforts to overhaul the state’s ethics and gifts laws, long considered some of the most lax in the nation. Current Gov. Terry McAuliffe and leading state lawmakers in both parties have already said they support such changes. The criminal prosecution also marks a stunning crash for a politician who was considered for the Republican vice presidential nomination in 2012 and just a year ago was considered a credible future candidate for president.

Sarah Appleman of Washington and her dog, Frankenstein, frolic in the snow Tuesday near Capitol Hill.

Snow in January in D.C. is nothing new. And neither is the smack talk that comes on its heels from weather-hardened folks unaccustomed to a city shutting down over a few inches. (Cut to five Januarys ago, when our new president created a storm of his own when he reacted rather, er, Midwesternly when his children’s school was canceled. “Because of what? Some ice?” President Barack Obama asked. “We’re going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town.”) But beyond the snowlitics (polsnowtics?), there’s no denying that when the first flakes begin to fall, it’s all you’re going to hear about — until the winds change.

Shutdown City The Federal Government

The Region’s Schools

In the Washington region, tens of thousands of government workers were given excused absences ahead of the snow Tuesday. (A decision on today’s status was to be made after Express’ deadline.) That left many seats empty on Metro trains and buses during the morning commute.

With classes canceled Tuesday (and maybe today) across the region, some school districts are preparing to add extra days to the academic calendar to make up for the lost learning time thanks to many snowy and cold conditions this winter. While many school districts add days to the calendar in the event that bad weather cancels classes, some are running out of days: Tuesday was the fourth snow day for many, and a fifth could come today. The spokeswoman for D.C. public schools said that the school year will be extended in June for the two days already lost to snow.

The cost: In 2010, the Office of Personnel Management said that each snow day costs $100 million in lost productivity from federal workers, according to NPR. There’s also lost productivity for state and local governments, along with the cost of snow removal. (AP/EXPRESS)

‘bombogenesis’ Thought “polar vortex” was bad? Welcome, “bombogenesis.” The term — introduced to us by NPR on Tuesday after a Philadelphia meteorologist used it in a headline (“Old Man Winter to drop bombogenesis”) — means a “rapidly intensifying storm,” and it’s just another meteorological term we can add to our word toolbox (file before “derecho”). Not a fan? Other members of the media are calling this storm “the polar vortex’s little brother” (because of the bitter cold temps it has brought, similar to what happened here a few weeks back). Or you can go the Weather Channel route. It has named this storm “Janus.” (E XPRESS)

Wawrinka advances to Australian Open semis vs. Berdych Novak Djokovic’s bid for a fourth consecutive Australian Open title ended in a dramatic five-set quarterfinal loss to Stanislas Wawrinka, potentially leaving the door ajar for a new major champion. No. 8-seeded Wawrinka lost 14 head-to-heads to Djokovic until a 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 9-7 win on Tuesday night put him into a semifinal against No. 7 Tomas Berdych. That means there’ll be at least one finalist in Australia who has never won a Grand Slam title.

I came on the court with a lot of confidence in myself, knowing that if I play my best game, I always have a chance against him.” This one took exactly four hours and featured some stunning rallies, with both players openly showing amazement at some of the shots coming back from the other side of the net. And just to add to the drama, there was a five-minute rain delay with Wawrinka serving at 5-5 in the fifth. “He showed his mental strength and he deserved to win — the only thing I can say is congratulations,” Djokovic said. Djokovic hadn’t lost at Melbourne Park since 2010, when he went down to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals, and has been unquestionably the best player on Rod Laver Arena since 2011.

QED Group. “We decided to roll the dice.” Though November through February is typically considered an off-season compared to spring, realtors say there are some real perks to selling a property in winter. For the newlyweds, selling the condo would enable them to get a better place while home prices — and interest rates — were lower. “We were afraid if we waited

“Buyers believe that they can find a bargain. ... A lot of people are still very actively shopping.” — M a rk Ml a k a r, owner of M Squared Real Estate, on why the Washington area housing market hasn’t really seen much of the traditional slowdown in winter

Rosenberg and Schreck’s real estate agent, Kymber Menkiti of The Menkiti Group (202-243-7777, menkitigroup.com), advises clients to not shy away from selling this time of year. The buyers are there, she says, especially at the start of a new year. “It’s a top resolution for a lot of people,” Menkiti says. “They may say, ‘I want to be a homeowner in 2014.’ ” In fact, for the past two winters, D.C. hasn’t seen much of a “slow season” at all, says Mark Mlakar, owner of M Squared Real Estate (202-706-6163, msqrealty .com). “Winter seems to be that time where buyers believe that they can find a bargain,” he says. “It turns out that a lot of people are still very actively shopping.”

The Look for Less

Sellers typically get a little less for their home than they would in the busier spring season, when bids from multiple buyers could drive the price higher. But this trend could work in your favor, if you’re looking to sell first, then buy a new place — particularly a more expensive one. “It may be worth it to lose a little value on the sell side if you’re going to buy,” Menkiti says. In other words, if your place sells for less, then you’re also likely to buy for less. For Rosenberg and Schreck, they felt they came out ahead, despite getting around $10,000 less for the condo than they would have in warmer months.

Because the 2,500-square-foot home they purchased was more expensive than the 975-squarefoot condo they sold, “The money we lost on not selling in the spring was more than made up for by the money we saved by buying in the winter,” Schreck says. With demand as high as it’s been in the past two years, Realtor Tara Cellini of City Chic Real Estate (202-499-4284, citychicreal estate.com) says she hasn’t seen homes selling for much less in winter than they do in spring. One property, listed Dec. 3, had five different offers within the first four days, she notes. “Buyers don’t want to chance waiting till spring, when interest rates might go up.”

urbanlandcompany.com) says he always likes to put houses on the market before the “better” market is in full swing. “There’s less competition and the seller is in a strong position, as long as they don’t need to move ASAP.” Schreck says the slower market was also better suited for the laidback couple. “I can’t imagine, for us, shopping in a hyper-competitive market,” he says. “If you’re a little more relaxed, buying during the slow time of year might be a better fit for your personality.”

A Warm Welcome

Realtors say the same tips apply in the winter when it comes to putting your place on the market: get a fresh coat of paint, clean, pull up carpets and have a professional stage the furniture. And don’t forget to keep the place warm and inviting for prospective buyers. “Some people, especially if homes are vacant, will turn the heat

A spokeswoman for GE Appliances says the company worked with a composer on long-form instrumental soundtracks for each brand. Here’s the breakdown: Monogram, GE’s luxury appliance brand, features sophisticated piano music plus plucked strings and a harp. Artistry, the entry-level brand targeted toward millennials, plays a garage band-style mix with lots of guitar. GE, the flagship brand, has upbeat brass and swelling wind instruments. (Think Aaron Copland.) Cafe, the all-stainless, more industrial brand, has electric synthesizers and wind instruments for a more techno vibe. More musical appliances are in development. Lenzi says he sees a further evolution to personalized appliance sounds, similar to having special ring tones on mobile phones. (the Washington post/e xpress)

Organized Chaos Get to the DC Improv early enough when Todd Glass is in town and you might see the comedian running around the venue, setting up the lights (he likes them dim) as if he’s part of the crew. Before the show, he’ll even do his own introduction. Last Thursday, he had a musician play the sax briefly before his opening act. Because what goes better with comedy than smooth jazz? Despite that Glass comes to the Improv By Rudi nearly every year — Greenberg I’ve seen him there annually since 2012 — his shtick doesn’t get old. Glass noted Thursday that he tries to change his act about 50 percent each year, but that’s mainly because his riffs often spring to mind the moment he steps on stage. He spent his first couple of minutes ribbing the sound guy for not turning up his intro music loud enough. Then, he played around with the reverb on his microphone. The rehearsed jokes he did tell, when he wasn’t ditching them mid-stream for another thought, were mostly bits I’ve heard before, recalibrated for maximum silliness. It was strange and loopy — qualities I hope he brings to the series he’s working on for Comedy Central, or, at least, back to the DC Improv next year.

Everyone is trying to crack the code of the modern 20-something. There are endless thinkpieces, Buzzfeed lists and a certain dramedy on HBO starring Lena Dunham. Now there’s “Broad City,” a sharp Web series-turned-cablecomedy created by Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, that debuts tonight on Comedy Central. The best friends and writing partners try a slightly different approach to life in your 20s: Actual reality. The show delves into the everyday indignities that make being a young person in a big city a hilarious — but humiliating — experience. Jacobson and Glazer are on the verge of becoming stars as they write, produce and star in what Comedy Central is hoping will be the channel’s next big hit. The show already has a long list of celeb fans, including Amy Poehler, who serves as executive producer. Their friendship was what led them to create the “Broad City” Web series in the first place. Jacobson and Glazer bonded several years ago as the only women on a New York improv team. In 2009, they started a Web series based on their friendship. “We just sort of thought a Web series would be a cool thing to be able to send to our parents to show them that we were, in fact, actually doing comedy,” said Jacobson, 29. While the process of bringing

pop culture references. Guest stars include Fred Armisen as a creep who offers Abbi and Ilana $200 to clean his apartment in their underwear, while Rachel Dratch plays a frazzled worker at a temp agency. The key to the show is chronicling minor, relatable moments: Whether it’s awkwardly exiting an uncomfortable small-talk situation or selling stolen office supplies for Lil Wayne concert tickets. “We like to keep the plotlines based in reality, started from a real experience that one of us has had,” said Glazer, 26. They also rely on friends’ anecdotes for ideas. “It seems, like, really salient to use experiences that you know have happened, even if they haven’t happened to you,” Glazer explained. “Then you think, ‘Oh, what would I have felt in that situation?’ And it’s easy to write from a real place.” EMILY YAHR (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Her Own Personal ‘Blues’ Against Me! delves into its lead singer’s gender transition on its latest album In 2012, Tom Gabel, frontman of the long-running punk outfit Against Me!, came out as transgender to Rolling Stone magazine. The Florida band’s new album, “Transgender Dysphoria Blues,” out Tuesday, is its first since Gabel, now Laura Jane Grace, announced her intention to transition. It is a lacerating, powerful work that is universal in its sweep and wrenching in its detail. In the broadest sense, the album wrestles with topics that are the bedrock of punk songs everywhere — alienation, self-loathing, a longing for acceptance and love. On a micro level, it’s a dark and very specific recounting of a very specific kind of misery. Frequently profane, fraught with sadness and relief, it’s the sound of a dam breaking. Until the 2012 announcement, Against Me! was a well-liked, top-

of-the-middle-tier punk band that survived a brief f lirtation with major-label stardom. Grace is now almost certainly the highest-profile musician to transition, and her new album is part manifesto, part open letter to fans, her wife (to whom she plans to stay married) and her remaining bandmates (two members left after Grace’s announcement, for possi-

bly unrelated reasons). “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” has the hooks and sheen of a majorlabel production, but it is in every other relevant way a typical Against Me! album, with Grace’s voice little altered from the band’s past discs. It’s shorter than it needs to be (the album clocks in at just under half an hour), and glossier, too. It’s also flawed, but still one of

the best albums of this new year. Only a handful of songs specifically address Grace’s transition, but even the songs that are probably about something else seem heavy with metaphor. The tracks that address Grace’s struggles with gender dysphoria fare better than those that don’t: “Osama Bin Laden As the Crucified Christ” is the only song that rages to little effect, seemingly present only to indicate that Grace is capable of thinking about other things. In recent interviews, Grace has expressed doubts about the future of her band, already buffeted by lineup changes and label troubles — and that was before its lead singer came out as a woman in a genre that is still the domain of heterosexual men. This might explain why Grace sou nds more u n happy t ha n relieved. Her album is so thick with death that the tracks “Dead Friend” and “Two Coffins” aren’t its most depressing songs. She knows that coming out was the beginning of a bumpy journey, not the end. ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Kenneth Branagh finds a classic story in the modern ‘Jack Ryan’ Film Since 1989, Kenneth Branagh has directed six Shakespeare adaptations. Turning plays into movies had become his thing. That was until his agent suggested he direct the 2011 blockbuster “Thor.” That film’s success led to Branagh directing “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” the latest film version of Tom Clancy’s CIA series. But Branagh’s love affair with big-budget films doesn’t mean he’s

given up working on epic dramas. “Shakespeare and great myths never end and in a strange way there is also a classical element to Jack Ryan, since he’s this paradox of this everyman who is brilliant,” Branagh says. “My transition isn’t so much about seeking the Hollywood franchise as it was going to those stories and finding Hollywood was as well.” “Shadow Recruit” is not based on a specific Clancy book. Still, says Branagh, “Coming from theater, my background has always been to honor the writer. But as far as I understood it, [Clancy’s] blessing for this project was at arm’s length.” Clancy, who died last October,

complained about the lack of creative control of the movie versions of his books. He was displeased with Harrison Ford playing Jack

Ryan in the film adaptations of “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger” because he felt he was too old. Conversely, Branagh said Clancy thought Chris Pine was “great casting” for the latest film. “He’s a pretty boy, sexy man,” says Branagh of Pine. But the knighted Briton, who’s appeared in more than 30 films, would never brag about himself. In fact, he still gets giddy when he sees his name in lights. “I was shrieking in the car on the way here when I saw all of the (‘Shadow Recruit’) movie posters,” he says. “It’s all still so astonishing to me.” JESSICA HERNDON (AP)

‘Revolution’ (NBC) Rachel and Charlie (Elizabeth Mitchell, Tracy Spiridakos) pitch in when Gene (Stephen Collins) goes to work helping the town of Willoughby, while Miles and Monroe (Billy Burke, David Lyons) continue their own effort to survive by working together in the new episode “Captain Trips.” Kim Raver guest stars.

8 P.M.

‘Melissa & Joey’ (FAM) Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) has reason to regret asking Joe (Joey Lawrence) to take things slowly in their relationship when he gets another job that keeps them from seeing each other. Lennox (Taylor Spreitler) is also conflicted about a relationship; she wanted a break from Zander (Sterling Knight) but he wants her to work with him on a comic book. Nick Robinson also stars in the new episode “Independence Day.”

10 P.M.

‘American Horror Story: Coven’ (FX) With the coven’s future in question and the end of Fiona’s (Jessica Lange) reign approaching, the girls begin to manifest new powers. Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) goes to hell and back in her search for Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) in the new episode “Go to Hell.”

10:31 P.M.

‘Wahlburgers’ (A&E) As if Mark, below left, and Donnie Wahlberg, below right, didn’t have enough on their plates — pun intended — they’re in the restaurant business, too. This new series takes viewers inside the Wahlberg family’s Boston eatery, where oldest brother Paul, below center, rules the grill. Neighborhood pals Johnny “Drama” Alves and Henry “Nacho” Laun also appear. (TRIBUNE MEDIA)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll want to keep close track of all the money that comes in and goes out. Even that loose change can make a difference at this time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A journey of discovery is likely to begin, and where it will take you may be anyone’s guess. Watch for signs along the way. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have a great deal to catch up with at this time, and your priorities are clear. Don’t let yourself be distracted by fleeting pleasures. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Avoid anything that will sap you of your strength. Focus on endeavors that replenish your personal resources. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You mustn’t let yourself get carried away with an activity that provides you nothing more than a temporary rush. Seek lasting pleasures.

JEFF NEIRA (ABC)

An inebriated Kelly Osbourne heckled “Fashion Police” co-star Joan Rivers at Rivers’ Friday show in Los Angeles. An unnamed witness told Radar Online: “Kelly was yelling things out to Joan during the show when no one else was and she was throwing her hands up in the air. She was doing it obnoxiously. Everyone around her thought she was drunk.” (EXPRESS)

Joan is like a mother to Kelly. As in, she is as insane as Kelly’s mother, Sharon.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department told E! News that, contrary to many reports, Justin Bieber’s home, which officers raided last week, was not rife with drugs and drug paraphernalia. No illegal substances were found save in Lil Za’s room, for which Lil Za was arrested, police said. In addition, the home was “well kept and clean.” (E XPRESS)

After a tense, mostly silent appearance on the “Today” show last week, Kate Gosselin’s 13-year-old twin daughters had plenty to say on “The View” on Monday. As quoted by E! News, Mady shared that she doesn’t like Justin Bieber, but likes One Direction. Cara does not like One Direction, but likes Demi Lovato. Of their parents’ divorce, Mady said, “Honestly, it wasn’t hard for us.” On the topic of their sextuplet siblings, Mady noted that they are “annoying.” (E XPRESS)
