Mad at What Obama Didn’t Say President’s executive omissions leave some of his allies angry Washington For some White House allies, the long list of executive actions President Barack Obama announced in his State of the Union address was marred by a few glaring omissions. Gay rights advocates are seething over Obama’s refusal to grant employment discrimination protections to gays and lesbians working for federal contractors, safeguards they have sought for years. And some immigration overhaul supporters were disappointed that he did not act on his own to halt deportations. On both issues, White House ofﬁcials say the place for action is in Congress, where success-
The Flare-Up That Stole the Spotlight A reporter for a New York City cable news station said Wednesday that U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm called him to apologize for physically threatening him at the end of an interview about the State of the Union. “I acceptGrimm Scotto ed his apology and I think we’re going to move on from here,” said NY1 reporter Michael Scotto. During the confrontation Tuesday, Grimm stalked out of an interview when Scotto tried to ask him about an investigation into his campaign finances. Then he stormed back and said, “Let me be clear to you. If you ever do that to me again, I’ll throw you off this f---ing balcony.” When Scotto protested, Grimm glanced at the camera and said, “You’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy.” (AP)
ful legislation would be far more sweeping than the steps the president could take by himself. But work on an employment nondiscrimination bill and an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws is stalled on Capitol Hill, leaving advocates perplexed as to why their
calls for executive action did not ﬁt into Obama’s vow to act “whenever and wherever” Congress will not. “In the absence of congressional action, an executive order that prohibits discrimination by contractors is a tailor-made solution to the president’s expressed aims,”
said Fred Sainz, vice president of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay advocacy organization. Ben Monterroso, executive director of the immigration organization Mi Familia Vota, said: “The president said he is going to use executive orders to act where Congress fails, and we expect him to do the same with immigration reform.” The criticism comes from two constituencies that have reliably supported Obama. More than 70 percent of Hispanic voters backed Obama in the 2012 presidential election, and the gay community has praised him for his support. For gay advocates, the frustration that followed the State of the Union was compounded by the fact that the president announced a minimum-wage executive order that in many ways mirrored the action they are seeking.

During a congressional hearing Wednesday, the nation’s spy chief called on former NSA contractor Edward Snowden to return a massive trove of classiﬁed documents. Speaking before a Senate panel about security threats, James Clapper Jr. outlined an array of dangers to American interests including a rise in cyber threats. But Clapper focused his opening remarks on Snowden, delivering a blistering stream of criticism in which he described the former contractor for the National Security Agency as a hypocrite who has severely undermined U.S. security. Clapper said the documents exposed by Snowden have bolstered adversaries, caused allies to curtail cooperation with the United States and put lives of U.S. intelligence operatives at risk. “Snowden claims that he has won and that his mission is accom-

plished,” Clapper said. “If that is so, I call on him and his accomplices to facilitate the return of the remaining stolen documents that have not yet been exposed to prevent even more damage to U.S. security.” Alluding to Snowden’s status as a refugee in Russia, Clapper scoffed at “his choice of freedomloving nations and beacons of free
expression from which to rail about what an Orwellian state he thinks this country has become.” The remark was among a series of exchanges that transformed the hearing into a platform for U.S. intelligence ofﬁcials and some of their critics in Congress to vent frustration with the Snowden fallout.

Justice Department to hunt down thieves from holiday heist Washington

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. told lawmakers Wednesday that the Justice Department will hunt down the hackers who lifted 40 million debit- and credit-card numbers from Target customers. Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Holder conﬁrmed that his agency is investigating the holiday heist that exposed vulnerabilities of the nation’s creditcard system. Target ﬁrst acknowledged the involvement of the Justice Department in late December, a week after revealing that customer account data was nabbed. Holder said the government is working to not only ﬁnd the perpetrators, but also anyone who uses the stolen data for credit-card fraud. Hackers also grabbed personal information, including names and phone numbers, of up to an additional 70 million Target customers. “The Department of Justice takes seriously reports of any data breach, particularly those involving personally identiﬁable or ﬁnancial

information, and looks into allegations that are brought to its attention,” he said. Luxury retailer Neiman Marcus has also revealed that 1.1 million of its customers had been affected by a data breach. The cyberattack resulted in 2,400 cards from customers being used in fraudulent transactions. Security ﬁrm IntelCrawler identiﬁed a Russian teen as the author of the malware that was probably used in the cyberattacks against Target and Neiman. Earlier this month, the FBI warned retailers of more attacks to come after discovering 20 breaches in the past year caused by the same malware that corrupted Target’s system, according to a person familiar with the case.

Cruise Docks After 700 Fall Ill Bayonne, N.J. A cruise ship on which hundreds of passengers and crew members fell ill returned to port Wednesday in New Jersey, with health ofﬁcials recommending that those still showing symptoms check in at hotels or seek medical care before heading home. One woman aboard the Explorer of the Seas yelled, “We made it!” as the ship docked in Bayonne. Other passengers, with blankets wrapped around them, stood on deck to watch the ship pull in.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said its latest count puts the number of those sickened at 630 passengers and 54 crew members. The ship was carrying 3,050 passengers. Health investigators suspect norovirus, but lab results are not expected until later this week. If norovirus is to blame, it would be one of the largest norovirus outbreaks in the past 20 years, the CDC said. Norovirus — once known as Norwalk virus — is highly contagious. (AP)

The Brutality of Blasphemy Law Pakistan’s religious minorities live in fear of prosecution Lahore, Pakistan The elderly man’s troubles started when two young men milling inside his homeopathic clinic casually asked him about his religion. He thought they were merely curious. In fact, they belonged to an outlawed militant group and were carrying hidden tape recorders. Within hours, police officers showed up at Masood Ahmad’s clinic and played back the tape in which he explained the tenets of the minority Ahmadiyya sect, rejected by mainstream Muslims because it disputes the basic tenet of their faith that Muhammad is Islam’s last prophet.
Not Just Pakistan Other nations aside from Pakistan also have such laws on the books. Blasphemy offenses are punishable in more than 30 countries, including some with predominantly Christian populations, such as Poland and Greece, as well as Muslim countries like Indonesia and Pakistan, according to a 2012 report by the Rev. Chloe Breyer, executive director of the Interfaith Center of New York. (AP)
Ahmad was charged with blasphemy — which can carry the death penalty. The 72-year-old has been jailed since his arrest this month, awaiting a trial that could take months or even years to begin. Pakistan’s blasphemy law is increasingly becoming a weapon in the arsenal of Muslim extrem-

ists. Vigilantes frequently entrap and sometimes kill adherents of minority religions accused of blasphemy. They have created a climate of fear, forcing frightened judges to hold court sessions inside jails. The violence associated with Pakistan’s blasphemy law has been brutal. Three years ago, liberal Gov. Salman Taseer was assassinat-

ed by his own guard after defending a Christian woman charged with blasphemy. In a separate attack, militants gunned down Minority Affairs Minister Shahbaz Bhatti after he campaigned for changes in the law. Human Rights Watch chastised Pakistan’s record of protecting its religious minorities, saying in its 2014 world report that “abuses are rife under the country’s abusive blasphemy law, which is used against religious minorities, often to settle personal disputes.” Ahmad’s neighbors said they were saddened by his arrest but would not dare testify on his behalf. Mohammad Ershad, a barber, called Ahmad a “thorough gentleman,” but added: “People don’t want to say anything. Everyone feels it is better to save oneself.” K ATHY GANNON (AP)
Bitterness of Syrian War On Display at Peace Talks
Back in the Bird-Blessing Business
ANJUM NAVEED (AP)
The bitterness and rancor stirred by Syria’s civil war were on full display this week at peace talks in Switzerland — and not just in the closed room where rival delegations are seeking a way to end the three-year conﬂict. For the ﬁrst time since the country devolved into civil war, supporters and opponents of President Bashar Assad — many of them journalists — are meeting face to face. The mix is producing more than just awkward moments between people with vastly different views. In the hallways of the U.N.’s European headquarters and outside, tempers have ﬂared. Scufﬂes
have broken out as journalists interrupt rival reports, government ofﬁcials have received extraordinary public grillings, and a distraught mother confronted the Syrian government delegation at their hotel. “It has been a rare opportunity to meet and get to know each other again,” said Ibrahim Hamidi, a Syrian journalist working for the London-based Arabic regional newspaper, Al-Hayat. “It’s unnerving for both sides.” Meanwhile, U.N. mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said Wednesday the ﬁrst phase of the Syria peace talks in Geneva will end on Friday, and that the gap between the government and the opposition remains “quite large.” ZEINA K AR AM (AP)

A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles
Metro’s budget is an annual investment in the daily operations of the system and the capital improvements that will provide safe and reliable service with improvements for customers for years to come. We are now working on a budget for the next ﬁscal year, which runs from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. This budget continues to prioritize safety, while placing an added emphasis on improving our riders’ day-to-day experience. Metro riders have started seeing a number of these improvements already, and more are coming. As we continue to introduce new railcars, buses and Metro Access vehicles, customers beneﬁt from a smoother, more reliable ride. In the coming ﬁscal year, we plan to put into service 64 of the new 7000-series railcars, as well as 151 new, low-ﬂoor Metrobuses and 150 new MetroAccess vehicles.
Bicycle riders will beneﬁt from new ‘Bike & Ride’ facilities, bike lockers or covered bike racks installed at 12 stations. And customers who use our parking facilities will beneﬁt from brighter, energy efﬁcient, LED lighting installed at all 25 Metro-operated garages. Bus riders can expect to see 46 new real-time arrival and customer information displays, accessibility improvements at 40 bus stops, and nearly 3,000 new bus stop signs and over 2,000 information cases updated. Finally, we will continue an aggressive schedule of track upgrades to improve the safety and reliability of a rail customer’s journey. From top to bottom, Metro is investing in safer, better and more service for our customers. We see this as money well spent so that we can continue to bring you a better ride.
Metro’s New 7000-Series Railcars
Metro customers played a critical role in the design of Metro’s new 7000-series railcars. The cars offer a full slate of customer amenities and are a drastic departure from the old design. Take a look for yourself. Stainless steel hand holds reach to the ceiling and are located at each row of seats. “You don’t have to put your hand near someone’s shoulder and hover over them.” Harise P. – Silver Spring, MD
Seat cushions, lumbar support and higher seat backs offer comfort, and there’s ample space underneath the seats.
Fluorescent lights are replaced by new LED light ﬁxtures, which are brighter and more energy efﬁcient.
“There’s a lot more leg room, and a lot more freedom of movement once you’re in the seat.” Larry Y. – Arlington, VA
Metrorail riders will beneﬁt from continued improvements being made at nearly every station. Another 14 new escalators will be installed at seven stations, 27 escalators will be rehabbed at nine stations, and 12 elevator rehabilitations will be completed in the next ﬁscal year. Brighter mezzanine lighting is being installed in all underground stations, and 23 station rehabilitation projects will clean and repair stations from top to bottom.
Resilient, non-slip ﬂooring replaces carpet. “The ﬂoors were the ﬁrst thing I noticed. I just thought, ‘Wow, how nice!’” Arthur F. – Rockville, MD

Little Bicycle Love in Md. House Hearing Lawmakers appear to be skeptical of two proposed safety bills Annapolis Two bills pushed by Maryland bike safety advocates received a frosty reception in the General Assembly on Tuesday. One bill is intended to clarify the laws that apply to bicyclists using public roads and the other would expand by a foot — to four feet — the distance drivers are required to keep from cyclists while overtaking and passing them. A third bill that would allow driv-
ers to cross the double yellow line while passing bicyclists is scheduled for a hearing next week. “I’m a little shell-shocked that there are so many bike bills,” said Del. James Malone, D-BaltimoreHoward counties, who chaired the hearing before the House Environmental Matters Committee. “This year it’s four feet, and next year it’s ﬁve feet, and before you know it the cars are on the shoulders and the bikes are on the road.” Malone said many cyclists he observes “don’t pay any attention to the rules of the road.” The first bill would make a minor change in an existing law that bike advocates consider sig-
“I don’t think it’s going to have any eﬀect whatsoever on drivers’ behavior or cyclists’ behavior.” — DEL . A NTHON Y O’DONNELL , R-CALVERT AND ST. MARY’S, WHO EXPRESSED SYMPATHY FOR THE DEATH OF TWO ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY CYCLISTS LAST YEAR BUT SAID HE DOUBTED THE FOUR-FEET PROPOSAL WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
niﬁcant. Current law says that a bike rider has all the rights and responsibilities that a driver has. The change would say that a cyclist has those rights and “only” the responsibilities that a driver has. It’s a nuance, but the advocates explained that cyclists injured while obeying the law often have their insurance claims rejected
because insurance companies apply a different standard of conduct to bicyclists than they do to drivers. After the hearing, the bill’s sponsor, Del. Alfred Carr, D-Montgomery, was asked whether he thought the bill would be sent to the House ﬂoor. “You heard the comments of the sub-committee chair,” he responded, shaking his head.
Maryland, which passed a law in 2010, is one of 21 states that require drivers to stay a minimum of three feet from cyclists when they pass. Del. Jon Cardin, D-Baltimore, proposed to expand the distance to four feet, a step taken by Pennsylvania in 2012. The Maryland State Highway Administration, which has been working with bike safety advocates on an education campaign, spoke out in opposition of the fourfeet proposal Tuesday. Cardin pointed to the death of ﬁve cyclists and more than 800 accidents in Maryland in 2012 as evidence that laws should be stiffened. ASHLEY HALSEY III (THE WASHINGTON POST)

D.C. Man Dies After a Delay in Aid Three times people banged on the door of the Northeast D.C. firehouse door seeking help for a man who had collapsed. Each time the rescuers inside turned them away. In a nearby parking lot, Marie Mills cradled her 77-year-old father in her arms. “Help is on the way,” she told him. “There are ﬁreﬁghters right across the street.” But the ﬁreﬁghters didn’t come. When she spotted one standing in an open bay door, she ran to the curb. “Can you just come and help my dad?” she screamed. “What are you going to do, let my dad die in the street?”

said is not in dispute. The incident, which was ﬁrst reported by Fox 5, occurred about 2:30 p.m. in a shopping center across from the ﬁre station. Ofﬁcials said Mills’ daughter ran across Rhode Island Avenue and banged on the door of the station. A probationary ﬁreﬁghter trained in basic
life support answered and reportedly told her he couldn’t help until she dialed 911 and he was dispatched to the call. Tim Wilson, a spokesman for the Fire Department, said the ﬁreﬁghter contacted a supervisor, which is standard procedure when someone comes to a station seeking help. “That’s where it gets a bit muddied,” Wilson said, adding that ofﬁcials are trying to ﬁgure out the sequence of events. “I’m quite disturbed and disappointed by what appears to be an inappropriate and timely response,” said Paul Quander, the deputy mayor for public safety. “The pain and the anguish that the family has gone through in unacceptable. There will be no rush to judgment, but we will be thorough, we will be precise and then we will act.” PETER HERMANN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Richmond Virginia science teachers are opposing a bill in the General Assembly they say would open classroom doors to lessons challenging evolution, global warming and other mainstream scientiﬁc views. The bill, sponsored by Del. Richard Bell, would direct schools to encourage students to learn about scientiﬁc evidence and “respond appropriately and respectfully to differences of opinion about scientiﬁc controversies in science classes.” The bill says its provisions aren’t intended to promote or discriminate
against any religion, nor does it single out “controversies.” But Bell said that evolution and climate change “might fall into that category.” Such bills are part of a wave of so-called Academic Freedom legislation promoted across the country by proponents of Biblical creationism or intelligent design. Juanita Jo Matkins, past president of the Virginia Association of Science Teachers, said teachers already have the freedom to teach about scientific debates that are based on scientific evidence.

Her father, Medric Cecil Mills Jr., died of an apparent heart attack at Washington Hospital Center that afternoon.

Storm Strands Southerners In schools and on snarled roadways, thousands were stuck overnight
Major League Save Among the thousands of motorists trapped on Atlanta’s frozen interstates was Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who tweeted that he was stuck for 11 hours before being rescued by former teammate Chipper Jones on his four-wheeler. “A moment I’ll never forget!,” Freeman said on his Twitter account. Jones tweeted that Freeman “hugged me the whole way home!” (AP)

JAIME SARRIO (ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION/AP)
Helicopters took to the skies Wednesday to search for stranded drivers while Humvees delivered food, water and gas — or a ride home — to people who were stuck on roads after a winter storm walloped the Deep South. Students spent the night on buses or at schools, commuters abandoned cars or slept in them, and interstates turned into parking lots. The problems started when schools, businesses and government ofﬁces all let out at the same time. As people waited in gridlock, snow accumulated, the roads froze, cars ran out of gas and tractor-trailers jackknifed, blocking equipment that could have treated the roads. It wasn’t clear exactly how many people were still stranded on the roads a day after the storm paralyzed the region. By Wednesday afternoon, trafﬁc began moving around Atlanta, though it was still slow going in some areas. The timing of when things would clear was also uncertain, but today will be warmer, around the upper 30s. Among the commuters trapped in the gridlock was Jessica Troy. “We literally would go 5 feet and sit for two hours,” said Troy, who along with a co-worker spent more than 16 hours in her car before ﬁnally getting home late Wednesday morning. Their total trip was about 12 miles. The rare snowstorm deposited mere inches of snow in Georgia and Alabama, but there were more than 1,000 fender-benders. At least six people died in trafﬁc accidents, including ﬁve in Alabama. Elsewhere, Virginia’s coast had up to 10 inches of snow and parts of

Stranded motorists take shelter Wednesday at an Atlanta pharmacy. Thousands were stranded across the region after a Tuesday snowstorm of less than 3 inches hit.
Local Comparison Some folks from the area were quick to draw comparisons between the D.C. region’s snowy commutes and the situation in Atlanta. “Before you complain about #DC not being able to handle snow please look at these photos from ATL,” wrote @dmbosstone on Twitter. But others found the Southern scene eerily similar to the local fiasco on Jan. 26, 2011, when federal workers were sent home early just as the snow started, snarling traffic on dozens of major commuter routes from Annapolis to Dulles. Hundreds ran out of gas or just walked away from their cars, and some commutes stretched as long as 13 hours. “Everything happening in Atlanta is deja vu. It’s crazy. Almost exact scenario to DC in 2011,” @NFLGoodwitch wrote Wednesday on Twitter. (E XPRESS/ THE WASHINGTON POST )
North Carolina had up to 8 inches. But Atlanta, hub to major corporations and the world’s busiest airport, once again found itself unprepared to deal with the chaos — despite assurances that city ofﬁcials had learned their lessons from a 2011 ice storm that brought the city to its knees. Some residents were outraged that more precautions weren’t taken this time around and schools and other facilities weren’t closed ahead of time. Georgia leaders were aware of public angst and tried to mitigate it. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed took some of the blame for schools, businesses and government all letting out at the same time, and he said they should have staggered their closings. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal also fended off criticism. “I would have acted sooner,” Deal said. “But we don’t want to be accused of crying wolf. Because if we had been wrong, y’all would have all been in here saying, ‘Do you know how many millions of dollars you cost the economies of the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia by shutting down businesses?’ ” HR AY HENRY AND RUSS BYNUM (AP)

Forecasting Snafu? After receiving backlash, famed Alabama broadcast meteorologist James Spann conceded Wednesday that his forecast for Birmingham — which predicted only a dusting of snow later in the day, around 5 p.m., rather than 11 a.m. — was “botched,” and he accepted responsibility for the mess that followed. But Al Roker said on NBC’s “Today” show that Atlanta’s mayor and Georgia’s governor should have been prepared. “They took a gamble,” he said. “They didn’t want to pre-treat the roads. I don’t think they wanted to spend the money. This was poor planning … pure and simple.” (THE WASHINGTON POST/E XPRESS)

No Flag for Indian Athletes Despite his country’s Sochi ban, Olympian will still compete
Sochi Olympics OPENING CEREMONY Friday, Feb. 7 7:30 p.m. on NBC
Shiva Keshavan, India’s most prominent Winter Olympics athlete, has no personal coach, funds his training largely with private donations and built his luge sled in his garage. Because India has no luge track, he often trains on wheels, shooting down winding Himalayan roads, dodging goats and noisy trucks. Despite his perseverance, Keshavan won’t be waving the tricolor Indian ﬂag when he and two teammates enter the stadium in Sochi for the opening ceremony Feb. 7. The International Olympic Committee suspended the Indian Olympic Association a year ago for violations of its charter, including electing leaders with pending criminal charges. India’s Olympics ofﬁcials failed to ﬁx the mess in time for the start of the Sochi Games. That means the country’s three

India’s Shiva Keshavan will be competing in his fifth Olympics next month.
“Yes, it is sad that this is the ﬁrst time ever that the Indian contingent will not be carrying the national ﬂag during the Winter Olympics. However, the Indian Winter Olympics athletes don’t stand a chance of winning any medals, either.” — AC TING PRE SIDENT OF THE INDIA N OLY MPIC A SSOCIATION V IJAY K UM A R

Mapping Team USA Olympics The delegation of athletes that the United States will send to the Winter Olympics will be the largest of any in Sochi when the games begin next week. Team USA will consist of 230 athletes (105 women, 125 men), w it h Ca lifornia sending t he most Olympians (20). Colorado and Minnesota will each send 19 with New York sending 18. Virginia has just two — Ashley Caldwell (freestyle skiing) and Ashley Wagner (ﬁgure skating). Here’s a look at the state-by-state breakdown. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Olympic contenders — Keshavan and two skiers — can compete in Sochi as independent athletes, but they can’t carry the Indian ﬂag or wear their country’s insignia, the IOC has said. Their national anthem will not be played during medal ceremonies. The suspension puts India in a league with other nations penalized by the IOC over the years, such as the losing countries in the two world wars, apartheid-era South Africa and the former Yugoslavia during the war in Bosnia. The Times of India called the opening ceremony, which will be watched by billions around the world, India’s “Walk of Shame.” “It’s quite sad,” Keshavan said, in a Skype interview from the French mountain town where he is training. “Rather than showcasing our country, it will be a shameful moment in the history of our country’s sport.”

Keshavan, 32, will be competing in his ﬁfth Olympics for India. In his ﬁrst appearance, as a 16-yearold in Nagano, Japan, in 1998, he was India’s sole athlete. He won the gold medal in luge in the Asia Cup in 2011 and 2012, and a silver last year. He placed 27th at the Luge World Cup in Austria in November. Because he can’t wear an Indian uniform in the opening ceremony, he’ll don a special cap made from red, gold and yellow patterned fabric symbolizing his home village. And he will compete in a special luge suit made of fabric signed by his fans. India’s sports ministry agreed to help the athletes defray the costs of competing at Sochi. Keshavan received sufﬁcient funds, but it has been unclear whether the other two competitors can afford to make the trip. Roshan Lal Thakur, secretary general of the Winter Games Federation of India, said he has received three-quarters of the $22,000 needed to send alpine skier Himanshu Thakur, cross-country skier Nadeem Iqbal and their coaches to the Games. Still, he doesn’t know where he will get the rest. “Maybe I have to borrow from friends,” he said. “Some miracle will happen, no?” ANNIE GOWEN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

History’s Better Half The nation’s pioneering women get their due in Cokie Roberts’ kids book
Deborah Sampson Known for: Dressing as a man to fight in the Revolutionary War. One Daring Dame: Sampson was a particularly valiant soldier. According to an 1898 New York Times article, “On scouting parties she would usually ride forward, a little nearer the enemy than any of her comrades dared.” DIY Surgery: After being wounded in a skirmish, Sampson removed a musket ball from her own thigh to avoid being found out. A doctor finally discovered her secret when Sampson nearly died from fever, and she quietly left the Army after her recovery.
DIANE GOODE ILLUSTRATIONS
Thanks, Uncle Sam: Congress later voted to give her a soldier’s pension and some land in recognition of her service. After she died, her husband received survivors benefits.
Books You can count on kids to tell you the unvarnished truth. That’s what Cokie Roberts found out while reading her new children’s book, “Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies,” to 8-year-old granddaughter Cecilia. As they were nearing the end, Cecilia said, “It’s getting kind of long, Grandma,” Roberts says. “But she hung in there, and the next morning she said to her mother, ‘Come on, I want to read you Cokie’s book.’ ” Ceci lia pa r t icu la rly loved the story of Lydia Darragh, who eavesdropped on British soldiers during the Revolutionary War and passed along the intelligence by sewing coded messages behind coat buttons. If you’ve never heard of this ballsy Colonial spy, you’re not alone: Darragh is one of America’s many founding mothers who have been overlooked by historians, says Roberts, 70. “These were very, very interesting women who had tremendous influence, and there are tons that people don’t know about,” the veteran journalist says. Part of the problem is that letters written by men such as Benjamin Franklin were carefully preserved for posterity, while those written by women were considered historically unimportant and thrown away. For instance, Ben Franklin gets all the credit for being America’s first postmaster general, but it was actually his wife, Deborah Read Franklin, who did the day-to-day work. “Ben wasn’t even in the country; he was in England,” Roberts says. “So Deborah was left to run the postal service, and she did a great job.” Just because the founding mothers were unappreciated in their own time doesn’t mean we have to continue the trend. Here are just a few of the early American patriots featured in Roberts’ book who are worth telling your kids about. SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Phillis Wheatley Known for: Writing an acclaimed book of poetry, even though she was a slave. Stolen Childhood: After being kidnapped from Africa, Wheatley was sold to a Boston family at age 7 or 8. She later wrote, “I, young in life, by seeming cruel fate/ Was snatched from Afric’s fancied happy seat: What pangs excruciating must molest/ What sorrow labor in my parents’ breast.” Prodigy in Chains: Wheatley began writing poetry around age 12. Her works were published in local newspapers and compiled into a book. Patriotism Through Poetry: Wheatley argued passionately for American independence, and she said that her urge for the Colonies to escape England’s shackles stemmed from her experience as a slave. She was freed after her owner’s death.
Deborah Read Franklin Known for: Being Benjamin Franklin’s wife. That didn’t entail spending a whole lot of time with her husband, who preferred to cavort around Europe with other women. A Brilliant Businesswoman: Deborah ran a chain of successful printshops and made additional money through savvy real-estate dealing, all while raising a daughter and Ben’s illegitimate son. Do Not Trample Her Begonias: While Ben was representing Pennsylvania in England, colonists mistakenly believed he supported the much-hated Stamp Act. An angry mob stormed the Franklins’ Philadelphia home, and Deborah stood them down with a shotgun in her hand. One No-Good Husband: Ben skipped his daughter’s wedding and didn’t even return to America when his wife suffered a disabling stroke. After Deborah died, Ben dreamed that he tried to renew their marriage in heaven and his long-suffering wife flatly refused. Illustrator Diane Goode used antique pens and watercolor to depict the women featured in “Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies.”

“I grew up listening to jazz, and what jazz is all about is … spending our time — like a monk — doing something really good.”
Grow Your Own Way Sax man Karl Denson keeps expanding his Tiny Universe, one jazzy groove at a time Music Never get complacent. Always keep growing. That’s the mantra saxophonist Karl Denson has embodied throughout his life — going all the way back to when he first picked up the instrument at age 12. “I looked at it from a real simple standpoint,” Denson says. “[I told myself] in a year, I am going to be better than I am now, and in five years I am going to be even better.”

— K A RL DENSON, LEADER OF THE BAND TINY UNIVERSE, ON HOW HE GROWS
ALICIA J. ROSE
THROUGH MAKING MUSIC
Denson, 57, got his big break in 1989 when he laid down some choice sax solos on Lenny Kravitz’s debut album, “Let Love Rule.” He spent the next five years on the road with Kravitz, then moved on to work across genres with artists as varied as jazz trombonist Fred Wesley, rock-reggae band Slightly Stoopid and classic rocker Steve Winwood. And that’s on top of his solo albums and the bands he leads: groove-minded ensemble The Greyboy Allstars, acid jazz group The Karl Denson Trio and his main project, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Denson has continued to find new ways to meld rock, jazz, hiphop and funk. With Tiny Universe, his high-energy jam band,
the sounds are vivacious and fun — the kind of music that makes you get up and dance, Denson says. Tiny Universe is touring behind its latest album, “New Ammo,” which drops on Tuesday. On “My Baby,” a six-minute jam with funky keyboards and groovy horns and percussion, Denson shares vocals with Nicki Bluhm of The Gramblers. The track climaxes with a wild sax solo by Denson. “New Ammo” gives non-fans some familiar entry points into Tiny Universe, with covers of the Beastie Boys’ “Sure Shot” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Tiny Universe’s first album in more than four years is also the first since guitarist D.J. Williams and drummer Max MacVeety
“My first 10 records were really about what I had to say and me sitting down and actually composing and doing the whole process,” he says. “This [new] record is different. … The guys really have had their own input in how this record came to be.” The other members of the group have adopted Denson’s dedication to growth, spending time away from each other to practice their instruments so that they’re even stronger musicians when they reunite, Denson says. “I grew up listening to jazz, and what jazz is all about is … spending our time — like a monk — doing something really good,” Denson says. “It gets to be more fun making music together because we’re getting better.”
FILM RIFFS PARAMOUNT PICTURES
joined the band. While Denson is still unquestionably the leader of the group, playing sax and flute and handling lead vocals, he says this album has more of a whole “band sound and identity.” Williams, keyboardist David Veith and bassist Chris Stillwell all get songwriting credits as well.

3 ‘The Passion of the Christ’ You’d think a film that ended on Easter would be a little more about bunnies and jellybeans and less about floggings and agony. Mel Gibson disagreed and directed this 2004 film.

‘Gloria’: This Chilean comedy-drama stars Paulina Garcia as Gloria, a woman who’s approaching 60 but is no cookie-baking grandma. One night, while out at her favorite dance club, she meets the recently divorced Rodolfo (Sergio Hernandez, at left with Garcia) and the two begin a relationship that would be hot even if they were 40 years younger. It’s a funny, refreshing movie that proves that love is still a possibility even after you’re eligible for AARP. Or whatever they have in Chile.

WHO THE HECK IS ...
Comedian Sara Schaefer, 35, could have lashed out when she got word last November that MTV would not renew “Nikki & Sara Live,” the late-night series she co-hosted with Nikki Glaser. Instead, she took to Tumblr and posted a poignant essay about one of her earliest comedic fails, a ill-conceived sketch about a German and a robot. “In both cases,” she wrote, “I dove headﬁrst into a world I barely understood, and I gave it my f---ing all.” This weekend, she’ll give her all during a free standup show at the Kennedy Center.
Odd Jobs Before she went all-in as a comic, Schaefer worked as a financial analyst at a New York law firm, performing comedy on the side. In 2008, she got a job editing pop culture content on VH1’s Best Week Ever blog. The next year, she became head blogger for “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” where her work earned her a pair of Emmy awards. In 2011, she added to her résumé with a gig writing for “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”
Best Friends Forever With “Nikki & Sara Live,” Schaefer and comedy partner Glaser gave tween culture a talk show, cracking jokes about pop stars and living out their dream of interviewing Justin Timberlake. The two were a natural pairing on TV, thanks to the rapport built on their hilarious, intimate (and currently on hiatus) podcast, “You Had to Be There,” which they record in Schaefer’s Brooklyn apartment.

On to Greener Pastures Despite the name, Greensky Bluegrass transcends the genre Music The members of Michigan-based quintet Greensky Bluegrass don’t like labels, something they probably should have considered before settling on their moniker in 2000. “We’ve certainly had to fight with the fact that the word ‘bluegrass’ is in our name,” says dobro player Anders Beck, who joined the group in 2008. “It doesn’t bother us as much as it used to [but] when we were trying to evolve past bluegrass into something else, we were like, ‘Well, do we drop the bluegrass?’ But no, then you lose the pun.” Instead, Beck says, the band lets the music speak for itself, even if it’s hard to avoid being pigeonholed because “we’ll always play banjos and mandolins.” It would be fair to classify the group as bluegrass based on its last album, 2011’s “Handguns.” Banjo, mandolin, dobro, acoustic guitar and upright bass make for an unmistakably bluegrass-y sound, as does the twang in the vocals of singers Dave Bruzza and Paul Hoffman. It’s not until one of the record’s
“We jam onstage because we like to play music. Sometimes you just don’t want the song to end because it’s going somewhere cool.” — ANDERS BECK , WHO PLAYS THE DOBRO IN GREENSKY BLUEGRASS
last songs, “Bring Out Your Dead,” that Greensky reveals a darker, distorted side, one that’s more blues than bluegrass. According to Beck, the band’s forthcoming fifth album, “If Sorrows Swim,” will build on the more folksy elements of “Handguns” while continuing to push Greensky past its namesake. “It’s probably a little more accessible on some levels,” Beck says of the record, which he hopes will be out this spring. “There’s more of a pop sensibility in the writing. … There’s a couple songs … I could hear being on the radio.” Might the album, then, be a reaction to the pop success of such folk revivalist bands as The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford & Sons? “No, we’re not smart enough to do that,” Beck says. “A lot of it has to do with what we’re listening to. … The songwriting was influenced more by Arcade Fire than Bill Monroe.” You could say a similar thing about the band’s live shows — just substitute the Grateful Dead or Phish for Arcade Fire. Greensky follows in the jam band tradition, varying setlists each night and playing left-of-center covers. During those 15-minute-long jams that crop up, Greensky sounds closer to a rock band. Close your eyes and you may even forget you’re listening to banjos and mandolins.
Cover This Greensky Bluegrass is known for its live covers, which span genres. “It’s a way of saying, ‘Hey, we’re all on the same page, we all like good music,’ ” Anders Beck says. Here’s a sample: “When Doves Cry”: You wouldn’t think this synth-based Prince classic would suit Greensky’s style, “until you hear it as a bluegrass song,” Beck says. “Atlantic City”: The Bruce Springsteen epic is an example of a more straightforward cover, as the band stays faithful to the original arrangement, adding an extra dose of twang.
Even still, “jam band” is another label Beck hesitates to take ownership of. “The reason why jam bands will get flak sometimes is because if you’re exploring musically every night, there’s a good chance you might fall flat on your face,” Beck says. “We jam onstage because we like to play music. Sometimes you just don’t want the song to end because it’s going somewhere cool.” RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

‘Yellow Face’ explores Asian representation in the theater world

C. STANLEY PHOTOGRAPHY
When the London production of the musical “Miss Saigon” came to Broadway in 1990, the casting caused a rift in American theater circles. Jonathan Pryce, a white man, was slated to reprise his leading role as the Engineer, a FrenchVietnamese pimp. In originating the part, he used eye prosthetics and skin darkening cream, to the outrage of many. At t he time, Dav id Henr y Hwang, the Tony Award-winning playwright behind “M. Butterfly,” wrote a letter to the Actors’ Equity Association protesting the portrayal of a Eurasian character by a white actor. “I had dared to suppose that the yellowface days of Charlie Chan and Fu Manchu had been relegated forever to the closets of historical kitsch,” Hwang wrote. Those words resonated with actor Stan Kang when he read the line in the script for Hwang’s semiautobiographical “Yellow Face,” in which Kang portrays the playwright. Just a couple weeks before the show opened at Theatre J, Kang joined other Asian-Americans on social media to denounce the Jan. 13 episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” which featured the allwhite cast portraying stock Asian characters in kimonos and chopstick buns. “Here we are in 2014, and yet here’s the Fu Manchu mustache, here are the Oriental girls who are supposed to be desirable,” Kang says. “If you were going to make fun of kung fu movies, why not give the opportunities to AsianAmerican actors?” “Yellow Face,” a fictionalized account of Hwang’s role in the “Miss Saigon” dispute and the flop of a play he wrote in response, asks

similar questions: How do racial dynamics play out in the theater world? When is a fictional representation realistic enough? What does it mean these days to be Asian, American or both? The politics of race in casting are nothing new to Kang, who is
“Growing up, the only [Asian] people we saw were on ‘Star Trek’ or ‘M*A*S*H.’ ” — STAN K A NG, STAR OF “YELLOW FACE,” ON THE DEARTH OF ROLES FOR ASIANAMERICAN ACTORS
Korean-American (the fact that he’s playing a Chinese-American man adds another layer to matters of racial authenticity). This is the first stage role in a decade for Kang, the full-time executive director of Educational Theatre Company in Arlington. But even at the peak of his acting career, Kang found his prospects limited. “Yellow Face” director Natsu
Onoda Power, who was born and raised in Japan, says Asian-American actors often end up playing either explicitly Asian characters or characters that were written as white but cast as Asian to make a point. The son of Korean parents who encouraged him to assimilate into American culture, Kang mines his understanding of the second-generation immigrant experience to portray Hwang’s struggles with his father, who came to the U.S. from China. “I thought, at first, the show was sort of a farce or satire about race, about what it means to be politically correct in theater,” he says. “In working on the show, I’ve changed my opinion. To me, it’s starting to feel more and more like a love story to [Hwang’s] father, a tribute to his father and his father’s values.” Now that Kang is a father himself, he views Asian representation in media — whether it’s a lack of acting opportunities or the cultural appropriation of “How I Met Your Mother” — with an even more critical eye.
The Plot David Henry Hwang’s 2007 play “Yellow Face” is a semi-autobiographical story of race, art and family. After publicly condemning the casting of a white actor in an Asian role in “Miss Saigon,” Hwang (Stan Kang) mistakenly does the same thing while casting a show he’s written. As Hwang tries to conceal his error, his Chinese immigrant dad — a successful banker — comes under federal investigation, forcing Hwang to confront his own identity issues. C.C.
“Growing up, the only [Asian] people we saw were on “Star Trek” or “M*A*S*H,” and almost never did one of the Asians have a speaking part,” he says. “When you don’t see your own faces on television … you never think, ‘Oh, I could become an actor,’ or ‘These stories are about me.’ ” CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR E XPRESS)

Who would have thought you’d find some of the most authentic Lao food in the Washington area in a restaurant flanked by a tobacco shop and a nail salon? Or that one of the city’s best taquerias is a few doors down from a karate studio where little kids practice snap kicks?

Bangkok Golden specializes in food from Laos.
6395 SEVEN CORNERS CENTER, FALLS CHURCH; 703-533-9480, BANGKOKGOLDEN7CORNERS.COM
There’s no shortage of stellar Thai food in the area. But Lao food? Not as much. You can get both at Bangkok Golden, where you’ll find a separate menu for each cuisine. (Combined, the menus contain more than 80 dishes.) Though it shares its western border with Thailand, Laos has developed its own style of cooking. “We use the same kind of herbs [as Thailand], like lemon grass and ginger and fish sauce, but the matter of cooking it is different,” says Seng Luangrath, who opened the 50-seat restaurant in March 2010. Of note is the Nam Khao (crispy rice salad) served with shredded coconut, lime juice, onion and ham ($9) and the beef larb served in a spicy sauce with lime leaves, rice powder, shallots and sticky rice ($11). Bangkok Golden’s success has come mostly from word of mouth, and Toki Underground chef Erik Bruner-Yang (no stranger to standout Southeast Asian food) is a fan.
Taco Bamba’s small interior belies the big flavors of its authentic ingredients.
Chef Victor Albisu’s position in Idylwood Plaza Shopping Center is an advantageous one: His mother’s market and butcher shop, Plaza Latina, is just a few doors down. “We get a lot of our ingredients there,” says Albisu, who also owns Del Campo, a South American grill in Mount Vernon Square. Albisu’s Latin American roots influence Taco Bamba’s offerings, which include Mexican standards like barbacoa, al pastor and carne asada tacos ($3 each), as well as inventive options like grilled pork belly and sweetbread tacos ($4 each). “We try to make sure our food is on-culture,” Albisu says. “Taco Bamba will never be anything but good Mexican.”

Strip malls are most commonly home to a hodgepodge of tanning salons, tax prep offices and discount-mattress outlets, which may be why you’re overlooking the acclaim-worthy restaurants next door to those places. Because the rents are lower than those of stand-alone restaurant locations, strip-mall spaces often appeal to first-time restaurateurs. Many of the ones who made this list are first- or second-generation immigrants with a passion for recipes that reflect their culture. “People want to bring [their recipes] to their new home and share food from their country,” says Tyler Cowen, a professor of economics at George Mason University and author of “An Economist Gets Lunch.” Even better, Cowen says, the savings from these no-frills spots can get passed on to diners. We shine a spotlight on a few of our favorite eateries, chosen for their selection of fine-tuned dishes steeped in authenticity.
Miso is the most popular broth at Ren’s Ramen.
11403 AMHERST AVE., WHEATON, MD.; 301-693-0806, RENS-RAMEN.COM
Founded by chef Eiji Nakamura and his wife, Yoko, in 2009, this ramen house has gained a loyal fan base for its wokprepared ramen. Of the four varieties offered (miso, tonshio, shoyu and vegetable shio), miso is the most popular, Yoko says. It’s characterized by a rich, heavy, pork-based broth mixed with soybean paste, roast pork, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, scallions, onion and ground pork. What really separates the Nakamuras’ ramen from the rest are the thick, wavy noodles they use, which are imported from Hokkaido, Japan (all bowls are $10).

Forget everything you know about Cuban cuisine — if anything. “Most people assume Cuban food is like Mexican or that it’s very spicy,” says Cuba de Ayer owner Jessica Rodriguez. “But there are no burritos, and it’s more seasoned than spicy.” Recipes at this no-frills restaurant come from Rodriguez’s Cuba-born mother-in-law and reflect the food found in a pre-revolution Cuba. (Cuba de Ayer translates to “Cuba of Yesterday.”) One of the most popular dishes is the ropa vieja (shredded beef in tomato sauce, $14.25), which is prepared traditionally with no modern twists. The three-hour process includes boiling the meat, shredding it, sauteing it in spices, and letting it simmer in tomato sauce for 30 minutes. “We always cook with the authentic Cuban version in mind,” Rodriguez says. “We never cut corners.”

Fainting Goat’s solid dishes will draw you back for seconds Before he helped open the Fainting Goat in the U Street corridor, James Barton was chef de cuisine at the Oval Room near the White House. Why would he ditch one of the city’s top American restaurants for a start-up? “Fine dining is not what people want to eat,” says the chef, 29. “The formality is going away.” What Barton wants to do at the Fainting Goat is pull diners in a couple of nights a week for a simple menu sprinkled with surprises. Popcorn in the “garden” salad surprises me. It’s not the first ingredient I’d think to add to greens and radishes, and honestly, the standin for croutons is not ver y appealing. But there’s enough on Barton’s concise list, its dishes arranged under clever headings (Nibble/Graze/Chomp/Feed), to draw me back a few nights after an initial dinner.

some backdrop to the food. Maple floors, exposed-brick walls and small chandeliers reflect accessible style across several levels of dining room and bar. Initially, co-owner Greg Algie (Fado Irish Pub, Cantina Marina) thought his new restaurant should link to the business that preceded it via a furniture-related name. But the idea was shot down by friends after he shared a story from his past. Turns out Algie was so shy around women, his friends used to tell him he looked like a fainting goat around them. “That’s the name!” his listeners told him. TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

JOHN BAZEMORE (AP)
A Legend’s View of a Legacy Elway says Manning can’t seal ‘best ever’ label by winning title
A man stands on the frozen roadway Wednesday in Macon, Ga.
Super Bowl John Elway says Peyton Manning can’t stamp himself as the greatest quarterback in NFL history even if he wins the Super Bowl on Sunday. Elway told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he’s come to realize the argument over who’s the best QB ever is a lot like beauty: It’s in the eye of the beholder.
Manning to Seattle? Not long ago, Pete Carroll and John Schneider sat in a private plane in Denver wondering if Peyton Manning would accept a request to meet with the brain trust of the Seattle Seahawks and see if that could be a potential landing spot for the free agent quarterback. This was in March 2012 before Manning decided to sign with Denver and before Seattle drafted Russell Wilson. Carroll, above, described Seattle’s attempts to land Manning as “brief” on Wednesday. (AP)
Super Bowl XLVIII
“I don’t think there’s ever going to be a ‘very best.’ I think there’s always going to be a conversation,” said Elway, the Broncos’ Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-executive vice president who lured Manning to Denver after his release from Indianapolis two years ago. Manning has the chance to become the first starting quarterback to lead two franchises to Super Bowl titles when the Broncos play the Seahawks at MetLife Stadium this weekend. When Manning signed with the Broncos on March 20, 2012, Elway declared, “My goal is to make Peyton Manning the best quarterback that’s ever played the game.” But at the team hotel on the Hudson River on Wednesday morning, Elway said he now realizes that question will never truly be answered, “even though when he walks away Peyton may well have broken every single record. “So, you’re going to always have

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning talks with team executive John Elway.
“A lot of them had a note: ‘Sign this for me.’ So I must have signed 10 jerseys for my teammates, which makes me think they think I probably should be out of here after this game.” — BRONCOS QUARTERBACK PEYTON MANNING
your detractors, but he may have a large percentage of ‘who’s the best,’ you know what I mean?” Elway said. “Yeah, all he can do is he can continue to cement his legacy, especially if he continues to keep going like the year he had this year. And I’m going to try to make sure he has all the weapons to be able to do that.” Manning said he still enjoys the game and all that goes into preparing his 37-year-old body and his surgically repaired neck for the rigors of a season, and plans to play in 2014 and beyond if he can. Manning is the NFL’s only fourtime MVP and is expected to capture his fifth award at the NFL Honors on Saturday night after setting records by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,447 yards while directing the highest-scoring team in the league’s 93-year history. HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)
Kobe to Miss Out: Due to continued pain and swelling in his injured left knee, Kobe Bryant is expected to miss the NBA All-Star game. The Los Angeles Lakers said Bryant will be out for at least three more weeks before he is reexamined. Bryant was voted a starter in the All-Star game, which is in New Orleans on Feb. 16. He had previously said he hoped fans wouldn’t vote for him, but Bryant was elected to the game for the 16th straight time anyway. (AP)
NBA Game In Atlanta Postponed Weather The deep freeze that engulfed the Southeast on Tuesday forced the Detroit Pistons’ game at the Atlanta Hawks set for Wednesday night to be postponed and threatened the status of other contests. Alabama decided to postpone Wednesday’s men’s basketball game at Auburn to today. The winter storm trapped thousands of motorists on Atlanta’s frozen interstates, including Atlanta Braves ﬁrst baseman Freddie Freeman, Tennessee coach Butch Jones, Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman and Georgia Tech sports information director Dean Buchan. Jones tweeted a photo showing he was stuck in Atlanta trafﬁc. A Michigan native, he included the hashtags “SnowInTheSouth” and “MichiganderProblems.” CHARLES ODUM (AP)
TV Lineup CAPITALS (7 P.M., CSN) After a seven-game skid, the Capitals have won two straight heading into tonight’s game at Columbus. Washington has scored 10 goals in its past two wins. NBA (8 P.M., TNT) Carmelo Anthony, who has scored 121 total points in his past three games, leads the Knicks against the Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.

He Looks Familiar … Selena Gomez is dating pop singer/Bieber clone Austin Mahone 27
An Unlikely Thriller
She blithely pops her false teeth in and out. Her motto? “I love to cuss. It makes me feel good.” She’s Delores Hughes, aka “Mema,” above, star of the reality show “Hollywood Hillbillies” (9 p.m., Tuesdays, Reelz), in which her Georgia family heads west so grandson Michael, who made the viral “Gingers Do Have Souls!!” video, can find fame. Mema has interesting views about Jews. She’s skeptical about Michael’s boastful talent manager but concedes: “The one thing he has going for him is By Marc he’s a Jew. You know, Silver Jesus was a Jew.” When the manager mounts a mechanical bull at a restaurant, she says, “I’ve never seen a Jew on a bull before. I wonder if that’s even kosher.” Mema’s commentary comes in the wake of high-profile prejudicial remarks by reality stars. “Duck Dynasty’s” patriarch called homosexuality a sin and said black cotton pickers he knew in the pre-civil rights era were “singing and happy.” Juan Pablo, the current “Bachelor,” said casting gay men in the show would not be “a good example for kids.” So far, I think Mema’s OK. To my Jewish ears, her stereotypes aren’t offensive. And they serve as teachable moments: There’s nothing non-kosher about riding a mechanical bull! Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Q&A Chilean author Isabel Allende is best known for her works of magical realism. Now, at 71, she’s taken a completely new direction with her first thriller, “Ripper,” out now ($28.99, Harper). Set in San Francisco (Allende’s adopted home) in 2012, the novel is about a holistic healer and her daughter, a bright yet introverted teen who spends her free time playing an online mystery game called “Ripper.” The girl’s hobby turns serious when her mom disappears.
“My sleuth is not James Bond. My sleuth is an autistic nerdy kid with a hood.” “Ripper” came to be because your agent suggested you and your husband [crime novelist Willie Gordon] write a book together. Why didn’t you complete it together?
My husband writes in English. He has an attention span of 11 minutes. He doesn’t research much. Me, I write in Spanish, I can write for 11 hours, and I research thoroughly, so, I thought, I will end up writing the whole book, and he will get half the credit. No way.
Isabel Allende finds horror in the most unusual places for her new book ‘Ripper’
“Ripper” is the first thriller from magical realism author Isabel Allende.
You’re known as a magical realist author. Does “Ripper” ﬁt into that genre?
It’s very funny because when astrology and that kind of stuff — crystals or aromatherapy — happens in Latin America, it is called magic realism. When it happens here, it’s called New Age. In the book, it’s tongue-in-cheek. “Ripper” has some grisly murders. How did you come up with this stuff?
I attended a mystery writers’ conference. The questions from the students were unbelievable. Here’s an
example: “If I inject a blood thinner to my victim and I stab her 13 times and hang her upside down in the shower, would the blood congeal on the bathtub?” Aside from inventing gruesome crimes, what was most challenging about writing “Ripper”?
Keeping suspense. You have to plant clues, but you also plant red herrings. At the same time I wanted to … stick to the formula of the detective novel, but also make fun of it. That’s why my sleuth is not James Bond. My sleuth is an autistic nerdy kid with a hood.
You always start new books on Jan. 8. What’s the rest of your process like?
I sit down with a vague idea. Day by day, the story unfolds itself slowly. Sometimes I find myself in a dead end. I have to turn around and start again. Must be a lot of revision.
Yes. But also I have discovered … that writing has an element of unconsciousness. If I am nervous, anxious, trying to follow a plan, then there’s no playfulness. I only enjoy it when the characters dance with me. K ATIE ABERBACH (FOR E XPRESS)

Miles Teller Gears Up for a Busy Year The star of ‘That Awkward Moment’ piles on the awards
BY MILITARY TIMES EDGE
Miles Teller is a name movie fans can expect to hear a lot this year. The 26-year-old actor stars alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan in the comedy “That Awkward Moment,” opening Friday. He appears in the dystopian adventure “Divergent” this spring. And he dazzled Sundance Film Festival audiences with his performance in “Whiplash,” which won both jury and audience honors Saturday at the festival’s awards ceremony. “It’s rare to get a script where they really trust an actor, especially an actor my age, to really do some heavy lifting and some hard work, and that’s my favorite,” he said. In “Whiplash,” Teller plays a jazz drummer determined to succeed. As a student at the nation’s leading music conservatory, he ﬁghts for a spot in the competition band, led by an intimidating and often abusive instructor (played by J.K. Simmons).
DANNY MOLOSHOK (AP)
Miles Teller, above, plays a hard-working jazz drummer in “Whiplash.”
Teller earned accolades for his Sundance debut in 2013, playing opposite Shailene Woodley in the coming-of-age drama “The Spectacular Now.” (He and Woodley reunite in “Divergent.”) “As a young actor, you just know about Sundance and all the great ﬁlm festivals, and you think about what it would be like to get up there,” he said. “And last year it completely lived up to that. And now to come back with this film and have it open up and have the response that we’re getting … it feels good.”

“Suddenly paying $18/day in parking and battling DC rush hour traffic seems like a logical solution over counting on @wmata” — @KIEPEONKIEPENON
reacts on Twitter to the latest round of Metro delays Wednesday morning. Metro had issues on four of its ﬁve lines because of disabled trains, The Washington Post reports.
“I think one of the things that makes a bad movie enjoyable is a complete lack of self awareness.” — COMMENTER FINNEGANSCAKE AT THEDISSOLVE.COM adds to a conversation
about why objectively bad movies are often enjoyable to watch. He uses the example of Tommy Wiseau’s “The Room,” which has become a cult classic of the good bad-movie genre, noting, “Part of what makes ‘The Room’ so amazing [...] is that Tommy Wiseau [the enigmatic director/star of the ﬁlm] had absolutely no idea how his ﬁlm would be received.”
“You didn’t ask them about the flags that go on these bloody things. Are they hectare-sized and made of reinforced material? I think we should be told…” — COMMENTER TOBY GUISE AT VICE .COM comments on an interview
of two Americans who started a company called Trident Support Corporation, which builds the world’s tallest ﬂagpoles for authoritarian regimes. The current tallest ﬂagpole, built by Trident, juts 541 feet in the air (roughly the height of a 50-story building), and is located in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan.
“Hey, you made it. Nice. I’m glad you found your pants.” — COMMENTER ROB_ON_DRUMS AT GAWKER.COM adds a caption
to an animated GIF that went viral Wednesday that shows Vice President Joe Biden smiling wide and pointing at someone in the audience during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.
“Why not get Kool-Aid to sponsor our trail snowplow person who could wear that costume whilst clearing the way.” — COMMENTER KAM AT ARLNOW.COM
comes up with a solution to satisfy all in the ongoing debate about whether Arlington County should provide resources to clear its bike trails of snow. KAM’s idea to get Kool-Aid to sponsor the trail’s clearing comes after County Board Chairman Jay Fisette referred to bike commuters as “those who have drunk the Kool-Aid.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your exploration of certain unconsidered realities can answer many questions before you ask them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re not likely to find yourself in the position you most desire if you are unwilling to step up and put it on the line right now. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are not aware of the central realities that are governing a certain key situation, but you certainly can be by day’s end. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) “Never” is a long time. The moment you say “never,” you are likely to find yourself fighting the temptation to forget you ever did!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can get a great deal of work done, and you need not tend to it all at once. Indeed, regular short breaks can provide inspiration. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may want to take one, two or even three short walks in order to clear your head and contemplate what is really going on. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can come to a few important conclusions that guide you toward a decision you have long wanted to make. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You must be sure to give yourself the opportunity to discover what you can on your own terms today. Don’t be too rigidly hemmed in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Like your Scorpio neighbors, you run the risk of taking yourself — and what you do — a bit too seriously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s a good day for you to get out and about. Try exploring new territory or circulating among a new group of people.
