‘Too Many Children Are Dying’ Severely wounded and still recovering, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords begged lawmakers at an emotional hearing Wednesday to act quickly to curb firearms because “Americans are counting on you.” Not everyone agreed, underscoring the national political divide over gun control. Giffords’ 80-word plea was the day’s most riveting moment, delivered in a hushed, halting voice two years after the Arizona Democrat suffered head wounds in a Tucson shooting spree that killed six — and more than one month after 20 firstgraders and seven women were slain by a gunman in Newtown, Conn. But at the same session, a top official of the National Rifle Asso-

enough to enforce the law as it is. Even if stronger background checks did identify a criminal, “as long as you let him go, you’re not keeping him from getting a gun and you’re not preventing him from getting to the next crime scene,” said

Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s executive vice president. Giffords focused on the carnage from armed assailants. “Too many children are dying,” she said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “We must do something. It will be hard, but the LaPierre time is now.” Guiding her in and remaining to testify was Mark Kelly, the retired astronaut who is Giffords’ husband. The couple, who both owns guns, have formed a political action committee called Americans for Responsible Solutions that backs lawmakers who support gun restrictions. “We’re simply two reasonable Americans who realize we have a problem with gun violence and we need Congress to act,” Kelly said.

The U.S. economy contracted slightly in the final months of 2012, as defense spending plummeted and businesses depleted their inventories, in a surprising development that could give hints of the economic challenges to come. Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic output, fell at a 0.1 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter, the Commerce Department said Wednesday, far below the 1.1 percent gain that analysts had forecast. The number

On the Other Hand ... The good news is that the biggest factors in the economy’s decline aren’t expected to repeat themselves. Underlying growth in consumer and business spending was reasonably strong: Personal consumption expenditures rose at a 2.2 percent annual rate, while business spending on equipment and software rose at a gangbuster 12.4 percent rate. Housing continued a bull run, with residential investment rising at a 15.4 percent annual rate for its seventh-straight quarter of expansion. (T WP)

will be revised extensively as more complete data becomes available, but if the number stays in negative territory, it would be the first contraction for the U.S. economy since the second quarter of 2009. Federal Reserve leaders on Wednesday signaled that they didn’t see the decline as indicative of some bigger downturn in

the economy. Evidence since their December meeting “suggests that growth in economic activity paused in recent months, in large part because of weather-related disruptions and other transitory factors,” the Federal Open Market Committee, the central bank’s policymaking group, said in a statement.

Girl Shot by Taliban Faces Final Surgery

London

“I am confident that in this coming fighting season, where technically they will be in the lead … that they are ready.”

A Pakistani girl whose defiance of the Taliban turned her into an international icon is headed toward a full recovery once she undergoes a final surgery to reconstruct her skull, U.K. doctors said Wednesday. Dr. Dave Rosser said that Malala Yousufzai, 15, needs the operation to replace the bone shattered when a Taliban gunman, angered at her objection to the group’s restrictions on girls’ education, sent a bullet through her skull in October.

Rosser said that Malala had made a “remarkable recovery.” “She’s very lively, she’s got a great sense of humor,” Rosser said. “She’s not naive at all. … But she remains incredibly determined, incredibly cheerful and incredibly determined to speak for her cause.” That cause has turned Malala into a symbol for a girl’s right to an education.

Md. to Mull Speed Limit Increase Lawmakers want to give state right to raise limit to 70 mph The need for speed is apparently a bipartisan issue. A group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers have found a rare point to agree on this year in Annapolis: About two dozen lawmakers on each side of the aisle have co-sponsored a bill that would give the state authority to raise speed limits on Maryland highways — including the Intercounty Connector — to 70 miles per hour.

MARK GAIL/TWP

Annapolis, Md.

A bill would give Maryland the right to raise speed limits to 70 mph on highways.

The state is currently studying the much-debated 55 mph speed limit on the ICC, the state’s newest

toll road, which connects Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. Maryland’s top speed limit on

other highways is now 65 mph. Del. Neil Parrott, R-Washington, and Del. Aruna Miller, D-Montgomery, have scheduled a news conference for Thursday to explain their plan. Several Montgomery County and Western Maryland lawmakers say they spend hundreds of dollars a month traveling back and forth on the new toll road. And some have made it clear they’d like to be able to do so more quickly. Sen. Jennie Forehand, D-Montgomery, has introduced emergency legislation to raise the ICC speed l i m it to 60 mph. A ARON C. DAVIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Campaign displayed in 4 stations hopes to change narrative Washington

Aiming to “reclaim jihad from Muslim and anti-Muslim extremists alike,” Muslim activists this week announced that their “#MyJihad” ad campaign began running Monday in D.C. Metro stations. The ads have previously appeared on buses in San Francisco and Chicago. With a four-week ad buy in the Shaw, Waterfront, Rockville and Dunn Loring Metro stations, organizer Ahmed Rehab, who is also

executive director of the Chicago branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says that he is hoping to change the narrative around the word “jihad.” “We kind of got tired sitting there watching people tell us what we believe or what we don’t believe,” he said. The posters feature photos of Muslims sharing their religious struggles and use lines such as “my jihad is to build bridges through friendship” and “my jihad: modesty is not a weakness.” Rehab’s website, Myjihad.org, notes, “For Muslim and anti-Muslim extremists, jihad is synonymous with terrorism, blowing up things,

and spilling innocent blood.” The site adds, “For many others, including members of the media and academia and even some Western dic-

tionaries, jihad is often incorrectly translated simply as ‘holy war.’ ” Instead, according to a statement on the campaign, activists hope to highlight the concept as it is lived by ordinary Muslims: “Jihad is a central tenet of the Islamic creed which means struggling uphill in order to get to a better place.” Rehab also is inviting Muslims to tweet using the hashtag #MyJihad to explain how jihad shapes their lives spiritually. As if to prove his point, the hashtag has been flooded with tweets from anti-Muslim activists pointing to accounts of violence perpetrated by violent Islamic extremists.

The jobless rate in the Washington area held steady at 5.3 percent in December, according to a Labor Department report released Wednesday that offered a fresh round of evidence that the local job market is improving but not quickly enough to significantly boost the region’s recovery. Job growth in the one-year per iod end ing in December remained mostly on the same trajectory as it did throughout 2012. The largest increase came from the education and health-services sector, which added 13,300 positions. The professional services industry added 9,500 jobs.

Think small changes add up to big weight loss? Think eating breakfast helps prevent obesity? Think having sex burns lots of calories?

Fat Chance. Research undercuts common beliefs about how we put on pounds Health

School gym classes make a big difto cut calories don’t have the same effect over time, ference in kids’ weight. studies suggest. At least one outside expert agrees with the authors that the “small changes” concept is All are myths or at least presumptions based on an “oversimplified” 3,500-calorie rule, that may not be true, say researchers who that adding or cutting that many calories reviewed the science behind some widealters weight by one pound. ly held obesity beliefs and found it lacking. Their report in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine says dogma and fallacies are detracting from real solutions to the nation’s weight problems. “The evidence is what matters,” and many feel-good ideas repeated by well-meaning Separating Fiction health experts just don’t have it, said the From Fact lead author, David Allison, a biostatistician A review published Thursday at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. looks at some of the most Still, some of the myths the authors cite common misperceptions in are “straw men” issues, said Marion Nestle, obesity. The authors reviewed a New York University professor of nutrition the most rigorous studies on and food studies. each topic, and here are some But some are pretty interesting. of their findings. (AP) Sex, for instance. Not that people do it to try to lose weight, but claims that it burns 100 to 300 calories are common, Allison said. Yet the only study that scientifically measured the energy output found that sex lasted six minutes on average — “disappointing, isn’t it?” — and burned a mere 21 calories, about as much as walking, he said.

Not So Fast? Independent researchers say the authors of Thursday’s review that debunks many obesity myths have some valid points. But many of the authors also have deep financial ties to food, beverage and weight-loss product makers — the disclosures take up half a page of fine print. “It raises questions about what the purpose of this paper is” and whether it’s aimed at promoting drugs, meal-replacement products and bariatric surgery as solutions, said Marion Nestle, a New York University professor of nutrition and food studies. (AP)

FACT: Although many dieters regain weight, those who lose a lot to start with often end up at a lower weight than people who drop more modest amounts.

YOU THINK: School gym classes have a big impact on kids’ weight. FACT: Classes typically are not long, often or intense enough to make much difference.

YOU THINK:

Snacking leads to weight gain. FACT: No high-quality studies support that, the authors say.

YOU THINK: Regularly eating breakfast helps prevent obesity. FACT: Two studies found no effect on weight, and one suggested that the effect depended on whether people were used to skipping breakfast.

YOU THINK: Setting overly ambitious goals leads to frustration and less weight loss. FACT: Some studies suggest people do better with high goals.

That’s for a man. The study was done in 1984 and didn’t measure the women’s experience. Some things may not have the strongest evidence for preventing obesity but are good for other reasons, such as breast-feeding and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, the authors write. And exercise helps prevent a host of health problems regardless of whether it helps a person shed weight. “I agree with most of the points,” except the authors’ conclusions that meal-replacement products and diet drugs work for battling obesity, said Dr. David Ludwig, a prominent obesity researcher with Boston Children’s Hospital who has no industry ties. Most weight-loss drugs sold over the last century had to be recalled because of serious side effects, so “there’s much more evidence of failure than success,” he said. MARILYNN MARCHIONE (AP)

Rookie Red Carpet

Award Predictions OUR PICKS FOR THE NFL’S 2012 AWARDS

Offensive Rookie of the Year Who should win: Griffin. No quarterback had a bigger influence this season. Who will win: Luck. He had a remarkable year while trying to fill the shoes of future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning.

For a second-straight year, the NFL will have an award show the night before the Super Bowl (Saturday, 9 p.m., CBS). This year, the toughest decision for Associated Press voters will be for offensive rookie of the year. With three first-year quarterbacks leading their teams to the playoffs, there’s no obvious choice. JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)

Defensive Rookie of the Year Who should win: Luke Kuechly (Panthers). Carolina wasn’t particularly good this season, but the rookie out of Boston College led the league with 164 tackles. Who will win: Kuechly. Offensive Player of the Year Who should win: Calvin Johnson (Lions). It may have been for a losing team, but Johnson set the receiving record with 1,964 yards — 116 yards more than Jerry Rice’s previous mark. Who will win: Peyton Manning (Broncos). This award hasn’t gone to a receiver since Rice in 1993, so it will probably go to the best quarterback or running back again.

Robert Griffin III

Andrew Luck

Russell Wilson

REDSKINS QUARTERBACK (9-6 RECORD)

COLTS QUARTERBACK (11-5 RECORD)

SEAHAWKS QUARTERBACK (11-5 RECORD)

Case for: Griffin led all rookies with a 102.4 passer rating (third in the NFL) and was 20th in the league in rushing with 815 yards. In leading the Redskins to their first NFC East title since 1999, Griffin threw just five interceptions. To put that in perspective, the Cowboys’ Tony Romo and the Falcons’ Matt Ryan each had a five-interception game this season.

Case for: Luck became the first quarterback picked No. 1 to lead his team to the playoffs as a rookie, turning a two-win team into an 11-5 squad. The Colts passer had a rookie-record 4,374 passing yards and was at his best during crunch time, leading seven game-winning drives. Few quarterbacks were asked to do as much as Luck, who attempted 627 passes — fifth-most in the league.

Case against: Griffin missed only one game this season, but that was one game more than Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson missed. Griffin’s injuries were almost as memorable as his play. And while efficient in the passing game, Griffin led a limited attack. There were 24 quarterbacks who attempted more passes than Griffin this season, and Luck had 1,174 more passing yards than the Redskins passer.

Case against: By having more pass attempts, Luck naturally will have more interceptions than Griffin and Wilson. But he was tied with the Jets’ Mark Sanchez for third-most in the NFL with 18 picks. Luck also completed just 54.1 percent of his passes, which ranked 31st in the league right behind Sanchez. It’s not a good thing to have any stats comparable to Sanchez, who may be out of a starting job in New York.

Case for: Out of the three rookie-led playoff teams, Wilson’s Seahawks were the best of the bunch. Washington ended the season on a longer win streak, but Seattle dominated opponents during its five-game streak to end the regular season — including a 42-13 victory over the NFC champion 49ers. Wilson led all rookies with 26 touchdown passes despite having 234 fewer pass attempts than Luck.

Case against: The fact that the Seahawks were the best rookie-led team wasn’t necessarily because Wilson was better than Luck and Griffin. Seattle had the top scoring defense in the NFL and a veteran running back in Marshawn Lynch, who ran for 1,590 yards, to take a lot of pressure off Wilson. No team in the NFL had more rushing attempts than Seattle.

Defensive Player of the Year Who should win: J.J. Watt (Texans). Watt led the league in sacks (20½), had 11 more tackles than any other defensive lineman and was among defensive backs with 16 passes defensed. Who will win: Watt. Comeback Player of the Year Who should win: Adrian Peterson (Vikings). Peterson inexplicably came back from ACL and MCL tears to rush for 2,097 yards, second-most in NFL history. Who will win: Manning. Voters will split this award and the MVP with Manning and Peterson. But shouldn’t the one who had the better season win both? Coach of the Year Who should win: Chuck Pagano/ Bruce Arians (Colts). While Pagano left the team to fight leukemia, Arians stepped in to help lead the Colts from 2-14 to 11-5 and an AFC wild-card berth. Who will win: Pagano/Arians.

Most Valuable Player Who should win: Peterson. He led the Vikings to the playoffs with quarterback Christian Ponder, who averaged about as many yards per pass (6.08) as Peterson did per rush (6.03). Who will win: Peterson.

Lewis ‘Agitated’ by Story

NFL

Favre Joins NFL Network Brett Favre is returning to the NFL — to work for the NFL Network. The retired three-time NFL MVP quarterback will join the network’s crew for daylong coverage of Sunday’s league championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Favre hasn’t been heard from much since retiring after the 2010 season. (AP) COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Dr. Phil: Te’o Was Victim Dr. Phil McGraw says Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, who masterminded the dead girlfriend hoax involving Manti Te’o, told him the Notre Dame linebacker was not involved in the scheme and that he ended up falling “deeply, romantically” in love with the football player. McGraw spoke on the “Today” show Wednesday, previewing an interview he did with Tuiasosopo, the 22-year-old California man who created the fictional woman Te’o knew as Lennay Kekua. Tuiasosopo’s interview with McGraw will air in two parts on the “Dr. Phil Show” starting Thursday. (AP)

TV Lineup CAPITALS (7 P.M., CSN) With just three points, the Caps have the second-worst record in the NHL. They face the Maple Leafs in Toronto. NBA (8 P.M., TNT) Two of the top four teams in the Western Conference face off when the Thunder (34-11) host the Grizzlies (29-15).

Super Bowl Smiling, even laughing, at questions about a report linking him to a company that purports to make performance-enhancers, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Wednesday he “never, ever took” the stuff. Lewis described himself as “agitated,” not angry, that the story has become part of the Super Bowlweek prelude to Baltimore’s game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. He added that he’s certain his teammates won’t be distracted by the report in Sports Illustrated. The magazine said Lewis sought help from a company that says its deer-antler spray and pills contain a banned product connected to human growth hormone. The 37-year-old Lewis is the leading tackler in the NFL postseason after returning from a torn right triceps that sidelined him for 10 games. In a private conversation with Ravens coach John Harbaugh, and later in the public setting of a news conference, Lewis distanced him-

self from Sports With Alternatives To Steroids (SWATS). SI reported that company owner Mitch Ross recorded a call with Lewis hours after the player hurt his arm in an October game against Dallas. According to the report, Lewis asked Ross to send him deer-antler spray and pills, along with other items made by the company. “It’s so funny of a story because I never, ever took what he says or whatever I was supposed to do. And it’s just sad once again that someone

can have this much attention on a stage this big, where the dreams are really real,” Lewis said Wednesday, wearing his white No. 52 Ravens jersey, gray sweatpants and a black hat with the team’s purple logo. “I don’t need it. My teammates don’t need it. The 49ers don’t need it. Nobody needs it.” The magazine reported that when it spoke to Lewis for its story, he acknowledged asking Ross for “some more of the regular stuff” on the night of the injury and that he

has been associated with the company “for a couple years.” Harbaugh said Lewis’ stance on Wednesday was different. “He told me there’s nothing to it. ... He’s told us in the past, he’s told us now, that he’s never taken any of that stuff, ever. And I believe Ray. I trust Ray completely. We have a relationship. I know this man. And I know what he’s all about,” Harbaugh said. “It’s just too bad it has to be something that gets so much play.” HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)

United Transfers Najar to Belgian Club D.C. United When Andy Najar burst onto the MLS scene as a 17-year-old rookie for D.C. United in 2010, it seemed pretty clear that it was a matter of when, not if, he would be making the leap to play in Europe. “When” came Wednesday. United transferred Najar to reigning Belgian champion Anderlecht, parting ways with the Honduran international for an undisclosed transfer fee. According to

The Washington Post, that figure is believed to be $3 million. Per MLS policy, because Najar was a Homegrown Player, United will receive three-quarters of the transfer fee, while the single-entity league collects the remainder. For non-Homegrown talent, teams collect twothirds of the transfer fee. Najar is the first MLS Homegrown Player to be outright transferred to Europe. “It has been very rewarding to watch Andy grow and develop into becoming the special player that he

and a blacksmith’s son, bond over Buzkashi, a polo-like game with a dead goat as the ball. (The goat’s not on screen for long, thank heaven.) They run around Kabul, getting into trouble and chasing the Buzkashi dream. WEEP LEVEL: “Bridge to Terabithia”

Curfew

(19 MINUTES) A destitute failure

is busy slitting his wrists when his estranged sister calls and begs him to baby-sit his niece, whom he hasn’t seen in years. Nine-year-old Sophia is as insightful, adorable and bratty as is necessary to salvage her uncle’s will to live. Expect tears when you find out why she’s named Sophia. WEEP LEVEL:

“About a Boy”

Death of a Shadow

Paperman

Don’t ask too many questions or you’ll ruin this one. A depressed, deceased World War I soldier captures moments of death with a crazy steampunk camera that records only shadows. He brings these afterimages to his weirdo captor, a collector who will give the soldier back his life once he retrieves 10,000 shadows. Are they souls? Stop asking stuff! The woman he loves complicates matters. WEEP LEVEL: “12 Monkeys” (20 MINUTES)

Henry

(21 MINUTES) Look at the expression

on Henry’s face. He’s lost and confused and old! He’s wondering where his wife disappeared to and why he’s in a nursing home and how he keeps going back in time! More reasons this one’s a five-alarm hankie-fest: Writer-director Yan England based the film on his grandfather’s final moments. And Henry is a pianist and his wife a violinist, so brace yourself for duets of unrelenting poignancy. WEEP LEVEL: “Up”

(7 MINUTES) It’s love

at first sight for a lonely Disney man (not a prince; his nose is too big) and a pretty Disney lady. But she gets on a train! He sees her again from afar and starts throwing paper airplanes to get her attention. WEEP LEVEL: “Sleepless in Seattle”

Head Over Heels

Mr. Unhappy Marriage lives on the floor, rightside up. Mrs. Unhappy Marriage lives on the ceiling, upside down. (Or is it the other way around? By the end, you won’t know.) The missus, a former ballerina, still does the chores, cranking her husband’s chair upward (downward?) so she can vacuum over her head/under his feet. Will they meet in the middle — or at least make eye contact again? WEEP LEVEL: “The Notebook” (10 MINUTES)

Adam and Dog

(16 MINUTES) Anything with “dog” in the title has the potential to evoke a geyser of tears. “Adam and Dog,” about the Earth’s first couple (Eve comes later in this version), proves dogs will follow you anywhere if you give them snacks — even past the Fall of Man. WEEP LEVEL: “Lassie Come Home”

Toby or Not Toby? In ‘Hughie,’ it’s hard not to see the guy we loved on ‘West Wing’ Stage Attention “West Wing” nerds! (This is D.C.; we k now your numbers are legion.) It’s a Toby Ziegler red alert! Bethesda native Richard Schiff, the actor who indelibly portrayed the bearded, balding, brooding White House speechwriter Toby Ziegler for seven seasons on “The West Wing,” is currently starring in the Shakespeare Theatre’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s “Hughie.” The two-character play is a little obscure — it was penned in 1942 and didn’t make it to Broadway until the mid-’60s. But if you’ve spent any time watching Toby, you’ll probably see a shared trait or two in Schiff’s “Hughie” performance.

Speechifying

He’s Got the Blues

Toby was the W hite House’s head speechwriter, and his grasp of cadence and diction showed every time he opened his mouth (and if you’re a character on an Aaron Sorkin show, that’s a lot of times). Schiff ’s character in “Hughie,” small-time gambler Erie Smith, is quite the talker himself. Most of the play’s under-an-hour running time (hey, same as a “West Wing” episode!) is just lonely Erie chatting up the night clerk at the New York hotel where he lives.

Toby Ziegler always seemed sad. Yet he was also convinced that there was somebody — usually a woman with flowy hair — who could make everything better. Erie Smith operates on the same logic: His good-luck charm was Hughie, the hotel’s former night clerk, whose death has left Erie telling his hopeful life story to a new, zoned-out clerk.

Luck of the Draw Toby was never more debonair than when playing poker with his White House cronies, cigar in hand. Erie Smith’s gambling habit is less fancy: Craps is not a dapper game. But even as a downon-his-luck gambler, Smith claims to have skills — which gives Schiff a chance to draw on his experience as a contestant on “Celebrity Poker Showdown” in 2003.

When Richard Schiff plays small-time gambler Erie Smith in “Hughie,” you might detect a trace of Toby Ziegler (inset), Schiff’s role on “The West Wing.”

Dumbarton Oaks

Did You Know? ii A 1944 conference held on the estate laid the groundwork for the United Nations. Robert Bliss, who served 33 years in the Foreign Service and was ambassador to Argentina, offered the space as an alternative to the State Department.

THE HOME THAT INSPIRED A STRAVINSKY CONCERTO

Yet another old house might sound ho-hum, but Dumbarton Oaks is straight out of “The Secret Garden”: a maze of greenery and flowers on sloping terraces, surrounding a museum and a 19th-century mansion. The home’s last inhabitants were Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss, who donated the 16-acre estate to Harvard University in 1940. The gardens are especially beloved by camera-toting types in the spring, when most plants are in bloom. tapestries. The museum, which displays Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art, and gardens each have separate entrances a block and a half from each other. On most Saturdays, there’s a docent-led tour of rooms normally closed to the public, such as the study. 1703 32nd St. NW; 202-339-6401, Doaks.org.

COURTESY DUMBARTON OAKS

The three mosaic panels beside the swimming pool, which depict the Greek myth of Diana and Actaeon, are among the garden’s many charms, if you don’t think too hard about the story itself. (Boy spies on girl, girl turns boy into stag, boy killed by own hounds.) The mansion’s Music Room is full of medieval curiosities, such as 16th-century Italian marble arches and massive 15th-century Flemish

ii Robert and Mildred Bliss were step-siblings. Robert’s father and Mildred’s mother were married.

Dumbarton Oaks sure will be pretty this spring. Or sooner. Thanks, global warming!

ii To celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary, Robert Bliss commissioned Igor Stravinsky to pen a concerto inspired by his home. “Dumbarton Oaks Concerto” premiered at its namesake on May 8, 1938. A Washington Post critic called it “spiced with rhythms of high intrigue.”

Anger Management Comedian Marc Maron’s late-in-life success has made him just a little bit less mad at the world

A Barry Good Time Some people know Dave Barry as the author of such fiction books as “Peter and the Starcatchers,” “Big Trouble” and his latest, “Insane City.” Some know him as a former humor columnist and year-end wrapper-upper. But some people have read their copies of “Dave Barry’s Greatest Hits” (as of 1997, anyway) until the books fell apart. And some of those people grew up to write for newspapers. They are VERY EXCITED Barry is making a stop in the area. In preparation, we recall some of our favorite columns. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

‘Taking the Zip out of Zippy’ Barry’s “emergency backup dog” Zippy gets fixed while his main dog, Earnest, gets stitches in her (yes, her) foot. They are dubbed “Bagfoot and Satellite Head.”

‘A Million Words’ One of his few serious columns — and one of his shortest — is the story of Barry’s last visit with his father. Every word rings with respect, love and loss. ‘Adventure Dog’ Barry pitches a TV show based on the life of his dog Earnest. The theme song, “Adventure dog/ Adventure doooooooggg/Kinda big, kinda strong/ Stupid as a log,” was fun to sing. ‘Bang the Tupperware Slowly’ Barry and a band of “highly trained journalists” (including Gene Weingarten) perform a song about how awesome Tupperware is in front of a thousand Tupperware distributors.

Comedy Stand-up comedian and podcasting king Marc Maron is still an angry person, but it’s getting tougher for him to be bitter about his career. “There comes a point where you have to have some gratitude and some pride in what you’re doing,” Maron says. “Because if you just blast through that with your bitterness, or your selfpity or your spite, then there’s really no growth there.” Maron toiled in comedy obscurity for years as a comic who was always ranting and raving about something. Then, in 2009, with his career in a rut, he started interviewing comedians in his garage. Over the course of more than 350 episodes, his “WTF” podcast, which averages nearly 3 million downloads a month, has gone from being essential listening for comedy nerds to essential listening for anyone interested in honest, engaging conversations with culturally relevant guests.

It’s also been a springboard for career opportunities Maron thought had passed him by. This year will see the release of his second book, the essay collection “Attempting Normal,” as well as the premiere of a half-hour scripted television series, “Maron,” on IFC. Though Maron has acted before — most notably in small roles for the films “Almost Famous” and “Sleepwalk With Me” — the IFC show “is really my first shot” at having a television show, he says. Much like FX’s “Louie” is

Beyond Comedy Lately, Maron has been talking with musicians (including Dave Grohl, Fiona Apple and Andrew W.K.) on “WTF” almost as often as comics. “The thing [comics and musicians] share is that we’re hanging our hopes and our lives on something that can provide no sense of security,” Maron says. “People who succeed at it are working against all odds.” R.G.

“Some of my bits, they appear once and they never appear again. That’s just the kind of comedian I am. I may run a bit for a few months and then it disappears.” based on Louis C.K.’s career as a stand-up, “Maron” is “based on my life as a podcaster who is sort of at the end of his rope and found this new medium,” Maron says. Unlike C.K.’s acclaimed series, you won’t see Maron doing stand-up on the show. “Some of the stories are based around my personal struggles that manifest themselves in my life: with my father, with my girlfriend, with a dead possum under my house, with dating and whatnot.” For Maron, writing scripts that could fit his personal stories into a three-act structure was a new challenge. “TV writing is a little weird,” he says. “I had never done any of that. Some of it is very close to my life. Some of it is completely manufactured. I’m not making a documentary, so you use your story as a foundation and then fictionalize it.” At 49, Maron finds his career in better shape than it’s ever been. So does that mean Maron is — gasp — happy? “Honest ly, I’m probably just as angry on a core level,” Maron says. “I just try to deal with it.” RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

entertainment | Weekend Pass In a world-premiere piece, Laurie Anderson and her crew translate subtle sounds into text

words in real time. Anderson was on board, but, “Then I realized, I don’t know how to do that.” She turned to Liubo Borissov, a robotics designer and expert in computerized music, who created ERSTE. The instruments (she’s on viola) are plugged into the program, which amplifies the subtler sounds they give off as they’re played and translates the sounds into words and symbols projected onto a screen. “The scraping, the harmonics, the overtones — they’re coming from the resins of the string, but they’re certainly sparklingly part of the fundamental note,” she says. “That’s the approach I have to strings, putting the sounds into hyperdrive.”

Music

Working With Kronos Laurie Anderson first met violinist David Harrington — founder of the San Francisco-based Kronos Quartet, which has been around since 1973 — at the Clarice Smith center about two years go. “Those guys are so fast and so incredibly professional,” Anderson says. “It’s kind of embarrassing: You can just kind of hum something to them, and they play it back completely orchestrated.”

Words on A String

THURSDAY-SATURDAY

The result, Anderson says, is far from a typical words-over-music experience, such as supertitles at an opera. The software generates text at the speed the musicians are playing, so the audience is reading hundreds of words at a time, Anderson says. “It’s a true multimedia experience,” she says. “Your eyes, your ears and your mind are switching roles really quickly, and you’re looking for how things relate. “We, ourselves, a re mea ning machines. Do you trust your eyes or your ears?” SHAUNA MILLER (E XPRESS)

For nearly 40 years, musician, singer a nd per for ma nce a r t ist L au r ie Anderson has been hauling around truckfuls of equipment for her tours: keyboards, effects pedals, cumbersome computerized samplers. For her upcoming tour, much of her equipment can fit into her carry-on. “The rig that I’m using is so cool — not to geek out,” she says. “Tiny keyboards, paper-thin foot pedals. It just folds up into nothing. Well, the violin doesn’t fold out yet.” A nderson is a god mot her of performance art, immersive narrative music and electronically manipulated instruments. She fashioned her own electric violin bow out of magnetic tape (instead of traditional horsehair) and built vocal-distortion boxes decades before the current electro-experimental movement in indie rock circles. Her most recent album, 2010’s “Homeland,” examined post-9/11 America through disjointed vignettes, soundscapes, and the manipulated voice of Anderson’s male alter-ego, Fenway Bergamot. This time around, she’s collaborating with the San Francisco-based Kronos Quartet on “Scenes From My New Novel,” a piece commissioned by the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center that will make its world premiere there Friday before heading to Australia, France and Italy. “Doing shows, doing music, is really fun, but what I really like is making things,” Anderson says. That’s where the custom-designed software ERSTE comes in. T he K ronos members were interested in designing something that would allow their instruments to generate a story — through real

Fire Drills

OMG, MOUTH ON FIRE

(SPICIEST)

Spicy food is just as diverse as individuals’ ability to

tolerate it. Some love the burning, numbing and tingling that comes from foods containing capsaicin and other compounds that create hot sensations; others find it unbearable. For many local chefs who prepare these types of heat-packed dishes, it’s not about overwhelming the taste buds. “Spicy food should be balanced,” says Rasika chef Vikram Sunderam. “If a dish is spicy, you should still be able to taste its flavors.” Here are a few powerfully spicy dishes with bold taste profiles. TE X T AND PHOTOS BY BRIAN OH (FOR E X PRES S)

Sliced Beef and Vegetables in Fiery Soup With Sichuan Peppercorns SICHUAN JIN RIVER, 410 HUNGERFORD DRIVE, ROCKVILLE, MD.; 240-403-7351, SCJINRIVER.COM

►►

Spice fiends are probably already familiar with the unique sensation offered by the Sichuan peppercorn. Used extensively in cuisine from China’s Sichuan region, peppercorns create an electric, tingling, numbing sensation in the mouth. Chef Jason Pei of Sichuan Jin River says the tiny red pods (which are actually the berries of the prickly ash tree) help to “boost other herbal flavors” in food.  His fiery soup with sliced beef and vegetables ($15.25) contains spicy soybean red sauce and is topped with a copious portion of those peppercorns. Diners often mix rice into the broth to cut the heat, but the peppercorns’ characteristic numbing sensation hits before long. Try it once or twice and you may become addicted to the seemingly masochistic meal, Pei says. “It takes time to get used to” the spice, he says, “but once you have, you’ve got to have it” again.

Ghost Pepper Salsa FUEGO COCINA Y TEQUILERIA, 2800 CLARENDON BLVD., ARLINGTON; 571-970-2180, FUEGOVA.COM/FUEGO.HTML

You’ll find ghost peppers — one of the world’s hottest — at Fuego Cocina y Tequileria. Thinly chopped and pickled with onions and lime juice, the pepper is served in a salsa available for free by request alongside any dish. Chef Alfredo Solis says you’d find this sort of condiment served with Mexican street food (despite the fact that the ghost pepper is native to India). On the Scoville scale of spice pungency, this pepper is reportedly rated at around 1 million heat units. (Classic Tabasco sauce, by comparison, clocks in at 2,500 to 5,000 heat units.) Think you can bear it? Try the ghost pepper salsa on the al pastor tacos ($7, above right), which contain spit-roasted pork, pineapple and moderately-spicy-bycomparison arbol and habanero pepper sauces, for an intense burn.

Korean Fried Chicken Wings With Spicy Sauce MANDU, 453 K ST. NW; 202-289-6899, MANDUDC.COM

Look around at most bars and you’ll find plenty of hot wings. Unfortunately, they often function as an endurance challenge at the expense of actually being flavorful (or enjoyable). Not so with the bar-only Korean fried chicken wings ($5) at Mandu’s K Street location. The wings are twice-fried to achieve a high level of crispiness and then coated in a sweet-spicy sauce that’s the hallmark of Korean fried chicken. The sauce — the result of long experimentation by co-owner Danny Lee and his mother, chef Yesoon Lee — contains a base of soy sauce and vinegar; its kick comes from Sriracha sauce, Korean red chili paste and ginger. The effect is a sticky, sweet bite with heat that steadily builds in your mouth but never becomes unbearable.

►► Chicken Green Masala With Thai Green Chili Peppers RASIKA, 633 D ST. NW; 202-637-1222, RASIKARESTAURANT.COM

►► BEARABLE BURN

(TABASCO SAUCELEVEL SPICY )

Indian food is known for containing a significant quantity of spices, but not all of it is spicy in the hot, pungent sense. At chef Vikram Sunderam’s Rasika and Rasika West End, for instance, some dishes contain no peppers at all (and, therefore, little heat). When it does come to piquant Indian dishes, Sunderam makes sure the components of the meal are balanced. If heat is “overpowering, you can’t taste the flavors,” Sunderam says. Rasika’s most popular spicy dish, chicken green masala ($17), is made with a base of cilantro, garlic, cinnamon and cardamom. A measured amount of ground Thai green chili peppers provides consistent background heat that is both potent and aromatic.

Have a high tolerance for heat but never seem to end up with food that’s spicy enough? Try having a conversation with your server or chef, letting him or her know that you’re not a novice and you really do have the stomach for intense spice. Or you could try a buzzword; some Express staffers have gotten results by using such phrases as “nuclear” and “Thai hot.”

Tame Impala

Tame Impala’s catchy, hook-laden “Feels Like We Only Go Backward” might be the best song the Beatles never wrote. The Australian psych rockers owe a great debt of musical gratitude to the Fab Four, who laid the foundation for Tame Impala’s hypnotizing, ’60s-inspired grooves. On 2012’s “Lonerism,” the group’s second full-length, guitarist Kevin Parker sings about isolation over poppy, winding riffs — which end up making for a balanced listen. They play the 9:30 Club.

COMING TO

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Screenwriter, author, actor and musician Nick Cave has been perfecting his gothic, theatrical rock with his band the Bad Seeds since the early 1980s. In recent years, Cave has branched out, penning the script to 2012’s “Lawless,” the Shia LaBeouf film about bootleg moonshine, and heading on tour with one of his other groups, “Grindeman.” This year, however, Cave is bringing back the Bad Seeds for its first album since 2008’s “Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!” The band’s sound evolves in unexpected ways from album to album, so we expect “Push the Sky Away” to be both brand-new and familiar. The band plays Strathmore.

If you’re a Fleetwood Mac fan and you still haven’t seen the ’70s uber-rockers live, this is the year to cross Stevie Nicks and Co. off your bucket list. The band hasn’t toured since 2009 but is embarking on a lengthy arena tour this year. Fans can expect all the hits (“Rhiannon,” “Dreams” and, of course, “Landslide”) along with some new songs the group recently recorded. According to a Rolling Stone interview with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, the set list may include more songs from the group’s expansive, expensive and experimental 1979 album “Tusk,” beloved by fans despite its relative commercial failure at the time of its release. Fleetwood Mac plays the Verizon Center.

After 7 seasons full of rapid-fire absurdity, ‘30 Rock’ takes a bow

Goodbye, Hello Should I praise “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” or eulogize “30 Rock”? Hey, why not do both! Hail Kimmel. Last week, Kimmel, above, whose ABC talk show just moved from 12:35 a.m. to 11:35 p.m., was duct-taped to a chair and gagged with a tie by Matt Damon, who’s allegedly been bumped by Kimmel 1,205 times due to time constraints. Damon hosted the rechristened “Jimmy Kimmel Sucks!” A parade of celeb guests mocked Kimmel for being “not classy.” But he is definitely the cleverest late By Marc night entertainer — at Silver least until Jimmy Fallon’s next “Downton Abbey” spoof. Farewell Fey. Tonight, NBC airs the “30 Rock” finale. The show has taught us that good things can come from crappy starts. As Fey wrote in “Bossypants”: “If you want to see an awkward, sweaty pilot episode, watch ‘30 Rock.’ I will not be joining you because I never want to watch that mess again.” She sure fixed it. Each episode has so many hilarious lines that cast members must talk extra-fast to cram them in. As a writer, I offer special thanks for an apt description of my profession: “those ugly people who have the papers and change the shapes on it.” Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse

Television “When stuff is coming to NBC 8:00 an end,” Liz Lemon says, “people freak out and they act crazy.” Viewers will find out if Liz is right tonight as she and the other characters of “30 Rock” produce one last installment of their show-within-a-show, “TGS,” on the final episode of Tina Fey’s brilliant NBC sitcom. After seven seasons, 14 Emmys, six Golden Globes a nd a Peabody Awa rd, t here a re many reasons to remember “30 Rock” fondly: The silky self-importance of newly minted Kabletown CEO Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). The naked, comically off-kilter ambition of “TGS” star Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski). The manic abandon of her co-star, Tracy Jordan (Tracy

“There ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party ’cause a Liz Lemon party is mandatory.” – LIZ LEMON ( TINA FEY )

“Relationships are like sharks, Liz: If you’re not left with several bite marks after intercourse, then something’s wrong.”

Fey’s Future “30 Rock” is ending, but Tina Fey isn’t going anywhere. The 42-yearold has been teasing the idea of turning her 2004 film “Mean Girls” into a musical with her husband (and “30 Rock” music composer) Jeff Richmond. She could also return to the peacock network at any moment: Fey inked a deal last fall with Universal Television to develop new projects, which may mean another sitcom. (E XPRESS)

Morgan). Then there’s Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer), the toothy true believer, who last week was promoted from janitor to president of NBC. Of course, no character is as beloved as the recent newlywed and mother of adopted twins played by “30 Rock” mastermind Fey. As the frazzled, none-toospunky producer of “TGS,” Liz Lemon has been a new-millennium Mary Richards for whom “you’re gonna make it after all” always seemed a long shot. Tonight’s hourlong series finale takes delight in tracking the unraveling of its characters as they put on the finale episode of “TGS.” As part of that farewell, Jenna revisits her role in the film “Rural Juror” (a long-running “30 Rock” joke) and performs the theme from her new musical adaptation of it. Inevitably, almost nothing she sings is recognizable as English. It serves as a reminder: “30 Rock” wasn’t just a brilliant comedy series. It also forged a comic language of its own.

Feeling Mortal Kris Kristofferson DAVID MCCLISTER

“Being near the end of my life isn’t a sad thing to me,” singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson says. “I have so much to be grateful for.” Kristofferson is only 76 and by no account is he unwell. But musicians age faster than regular folks, and aging is very much on his mind. Call him on the phone, and the conversation starts like this: “Hello, sir. How are you?”

On his new album, Kris Kristofferson documents a life lived to the fullest.

a possible legacy of his years as a college football star and Golden Gloves boxer. But he can still remember his song lyrics and has easy recall of events from his past, which make for one of the best backstories in music history: The well-born son of an Air Force major general, he gave up a career in the military for life as an aspiring (read: starving) Nashville songwriter in the ’60s. “Me and Bobby McGee” became a surprise hit for Roger Miller, then a posthumous one for Janis Joplin; “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” was a No. 1 hit for Johnny Cash. Kristofferson also does brisk business as an actor. He’s co-starred

in “Heaven’s Gate,” “A Star Is Born” and two iterations of “Blade.” It’s a legendary life well-lived and carefully chronicled in song. If he spends most of his time confronting the gathering twilight,

The Other Food Market ‘The Secret Financial Life of Food’ looks at cuisine as commodity

America’s blossoming romance with food has arguably gotten out of hand. Recently, there has been a banquet of books documenting farm-to-fork, pasture-to-plate and boutique-to-bistro eating, where each individual bite of grub has a blue-blooded pedigree and a price tag to match. “The Secret Financial Life of Food” ($26.95, Columbia Univ.) is

COURTESY KARA NEWMAN

Book Review

Kara Newman’s book examines the rise and fall in value of various foods.

a refreshing and much-needed look from a different perspective: food as commodity. Kara Newman, the spirits editor at Wine Enthusiast magazine, tells the story of food as it is bought and sold in massive, standardized quantities; shipped and packaged efficiently; and transformed into edible goodies. Within the whirls and eddies of financial history described in this trim volume are any number of engaging observations about the rise and fall of various commodities. Newman tells us, for example, how pepper evolved from a financial instrument of critical value into a lowly bulk foodstuff and how the

seasonality of eggs and milk faded as refrigeration created the modern era of year-round dairy products. The book clearly and elegantly documents the growth of various forms of commodities trading, everything from coffee to spices to soybeans. But as a window into how commodities trading influences the modern grocery and fast-food dining experience, “The Secret Financial Life of Food” promises a bit more than it delivers.

what’snew@metro A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles There are many powerful scenes about justice and equality in Spielberg’s movie “Lincoln.” In a particularly passionate moment, Daniel Day-Lewis says, “We are stepped out upon the world stage now, with the fate of human dignity in our hands. Blood’s been spilled to afford us this moment! Now, now, now!” The quote is particularly interesting because of its appeal for the preservation of “human dignity.” Lincoln’s not talking about the fate of the nation, or even his own fate, but the fate of human dignity. That got me thinking about America’s history of shared freedoms built on equality and our common humanity. Sometimes I marvel at our short memories — in big ways on the world stage — and on a smaller scale in our daily lives. It seems to me that true equality should nurture mutual respect and, in its course, human dignity. Today, we see civility and respect eroding in little ways through selfishness, impatience and intolerance. On Metro, I see human dignity diminished by the lack of courtesy for expectant mothers, by young people acting disrespectfully to seniors on the bus, by people so possessed by haste that they push riders with disabilities from their paths. I see our American commitment to human dignity betrayed in some ads that appear on the Metro system — under the protection of the First Amendment — with messages clearly intended to insult a person or group of people. The messages seek to divide us, to stir fear about people who hold different views, or those who come from less familiar cultures. In many ways, Metro is a microcosm of our diverse national and regional culture, and we have an opportunity to demonstrate compassion for our fellow riders on our journeys every day. Our employees, our riders and the communities we serve can all decide to treat each other with respect. At a minimum, we can practice the rule we were taught as children: Treat others the way we want to be treated. President Lincoln is a hero to all who love equality and freedom. His legacy places the fate of human dignity in our hands. It’s our individual responsibility to meet that challenge in little ways through respect, courtesy and tolerance. Now.

Kiosk LCD Screens Inform Your Ride You may have noticed Metrorail kiosks at station entrances are sporting new flat panel screens designed to give customers all the information they need to make informed travel decisions. In December, Metro installed 110 customer information displays showing Metrorail advisories, alerts, system status and elevator outage information, all in real time. The digital monitors atop the kiosks are one of 50 initiatives undertaken by Metro to improve customer service, and were developed in response to customers who said they want information about service disruptions and advisories before they enter the rail system. Each of Metro’s 86 rail stations has at least one of the new screens, and several stations with multiple kiosks have more than one. All are visible from outside the faregates, so customers can view the status of on-time service and delays for all lines. They also give information about station elevator outages and shuttle service. And of course, the current time is prominently displayed.

New Metro K-9 Was One of the Few, the Proud Metro’s public safety team recently added nine new military veterans, fresh from tours of duty in Afghanistan. All nine bring specialized counter-terrorism training to help protect the Metro system. And their most valuable asset is their noses. These recruits are former U.S. Marine Corps service dogs, adopted by the Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) for its K-9 bomb detection unit. MTPD Sergeant Andrew Keahon is the proud handler of “Hatch,” a six-year-old Labrador retriever and veteran of three Afghanistan deployments. On his last tour, Hatch was wounded in action. Fortunately, medical care helped him recover from his wounds, and in October 2012, Hatch transitioned to civilian duty with the MTPD. Sgt. Keahon. He describes Hatch as “a people-friendly ball of energy” and answered a few questions about his four-legged, crime-fighting partner. Q: What was Hatch’s job in Afghanistan? A: Hatch was trained by the Marine Corps to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Hatch often

{

worked 10- to 12-hour days. His level of energy and his disposition made him well-suited for the job. Hatch still has many years of service to give in his new role as an MTPD bomb-sniffing dog. Q: How was Hatch wounded? A: Hatch sustained injuries to his front paws and one of his ears when an IED exploded. His injuries are now fully healed. Q: Where on Metro will customers see Hatch? A: Hatch and I patrol Metrorail stations mostly in downtown DC. Q: What does Hatch do when he’s off-duty? A: Hatch lives with me and my two children. He’s very social, and despite his experience in Afghanistan, is still a very happy dog who is full of life, enthusiasm and love. Hatch loves to play and looks forward to being rewarded with his rubber ball. He’s also a voracious eater. “When he’s not eating, he’s thinking about eating. Even when he’s sleeping, he’s probably dreaming about eating,” said Sgt. Keahon.

TV tonight lookout

More ‘Harm’ Than Good NBC’s new retelling of ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ is seriously ridiculous “Do No Harm” offers a curious blend of medical procedural mixed with an update of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” Handsome and headstrong neurosurgeon Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, “Rescue Me”) has a devil of a time multitasking. From 8:25 a.m. to 8:25 p.m., he’s the darling of his patients and quite a few of his colleagues. But in the dark hours, he NBC

Series Premieres Steven Pasquale has a unique, dual role on NBC’s new “Do No Harm.”

turns into Ian Price, a violent sadist. And all of Price’s vile actions reflect poorly on the good doctor. For years, Dr. Cole has been keeping Price bottled up with nar-

cotics, essentially putting himself in a 12-hour coma every night. But lately he’s begun to prove resistant to even the strongest doses. Colleagues convince him that it

would be better to confront the evil Ian and work out his demons. His decision to do just that offers an excuse for future episodes. Don’t expect too many. Forgetting the fact that it’s nonsensical, “Harm” just can’t find the right tone. Saddled with a preposterous story, “Harm” plays it straight, which makes it silly. Grown-up viewers who’ve seen a half-century of “Nutty Professor” movies will have a problem not giggling. Those Jerry Lewis and Eddie Murphy movies were smart enough to find the farce in that far-fetched fantasy. “Harm” is too earnest to be in on its own joke. KE VIN MCDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)

Film Beat

Hug It Out, Bros Fulfilling the destiny of a TV show about the inner workings of the movie industry, HBO’s “Entourage” will get a big-screen adaptation. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has green-lighted a film version of the comedy, which aired from 2004 to 2011 and followed movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier, above) and his posse. Creator Doug Ellin will direct. (E XPRESS)

“Apparently, she wasn’t always a BlackBerry fan. She was once an ‘iPhone junky.’ … And her official Twitter account uses Instagram to share all of its photos — an app that’s not available on BlackBerry.” — KIM BHASIN AT BUSINESS INSIDER.COM finds it ironic

that Alicia Keys was named global creative director of BlackBerry on Wednesday at a news conference in New York.

“Some weren’t fans of the headliners — others hadn’t even heard of them — but that didn’t stop Coachella from selling out its total allotment of tickets for both weekends.” — ALEX YOUNG AT CONSEQUENCE OFSOUND.NET reacts to news that

the April music festival in Indio, Calif., sold out in 21 hours, adding, “which is impressive but pales in comparison to last year’s mark of three hours.”

“WTOP reporter Mark Segraves, who’s leaving for NBC 4, has written his colleagues one of the longest goodbye notes we’ve seen in awhile. His subject line: ‘If I had more time I’d write a shorter note.’ Get the tissues. It’s touching and heartfelt.” — BETSY ROTHSTEIN AT MEDIABISTRO .COM/FISHBOWLDC, a local media

gossip site, reacts to an internal memo from Segraves to the WTOP staff that read, in part, “[The] journey to make myself a better journalist moves to NBC 4 next month, but I’ll take with me the spirit of WTOP and what it means to be a hard working reporter in a 24 hour news world.”

“I say [Jerry] Rice= [Muhammad] Ali and [Randy] Moss = [Mike] Tyson.” — @TCRABTREE83 compares

football players to boxers after San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss said Tuesday at Super Bowl media day, “I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it.”

“On MSNBC [Wednesday], U.S. senator Lamar Alexander (a Tennessee Republican) set a new benchmark for insanity by claiming that games are worse than guns. … This is a person who has a significant amount of power in this country, and he believes that video games are a bigger problem than guns.” — JASON SCHREIER AT KOTAKU.COM was

stunned that Alexander told host Chuck Todd on television, “I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people.”

Sudoku

DIFFICULT

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The lessons you learn about yourself and what you are currently up to will inform the work you are doing for some time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can do much to ensure that your money is well spent at this time, but there is little you can do to mitigate the need to spend it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) A situation that threatens to get out of hand very quickly can be controlled with just the right thing said at just the right time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll receive conflicting information today, but you can sort it out with the help of someone who has just the right tools at his disposal. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have trouble talking someone you know well into doing something he or she hasn’t done in a while — but potential rewards are persuasive!

Yesterday’s Solution

Yesterday’s Solution

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may have to look very closely at all the evidence today before you can make up your mind about a situation that is “too hot to handle.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Despite a recent period of self-doubt, you’ll feel as though you’re “back on top.” That will carry you forward quickly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’ll hear much that has you thinking that you’re the right one for the job, despite lacking one or two published qualifications.

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

Comics

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You can impress others with your calm, cool demeanor when everything seems to be heating up around you. You have things under control. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ll be in good spirits as you head into something of an adventure, doing what others may consider a bit too daunting.

A Rumor and Subsequent Denial? That’s a Breakup! Bradley Cooper says he is not dating Taylor Swift nor has he ever considered dating her. “Crazy, never met her. I mean, that’s not even true at all,” he told “Extra.” Radaronline.com had reported that Swift asked Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in “Silver Linings Playbook” with Cooper, to introduce them but that Cooper wasn’t interested in someone so young.

OK, Your Mistake Rihanna says if dating Chris Brown is a mistake, she’s OK with that. The singer told Rolling Stone in an interview that dating Brown makes her happy and “if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake.” She added that she’s ready to go public with the relationship. Four years ago, Brown attacked Rihanna and was charged with a felony.
