They are seeking someone who has tormented lawyer Guido Grolle by sending him more than 100 unwanted pizzas, plus deliveries of sushi, sausage and Greek food.

Mild message, fierce debate CENTREVILLE, VA. The owners of Cox Farms had been getting backlash for about a week over their latest sign, “Rise & Resist,” near the entrance of their 116-acre farm in Northern Virginia that’s famous for its fall festival. The responses didn’t surprise the owners of Cox Farms, who had long taken politically charged stands on their land. In 2015, a Black Lives Matter poster led a local police union to call for a boycott of their farm, and last year, a pair of signs — “We Love Our Muslim Neighbors” and “Immigrants Make America Great!” — sparked some backlash. But this time, they decided to change the sign. Aaron Cox-Leow, who runs the operations side of the 46-yearold business in Centreville, Va., started thinking of some new language that everyone could agree on. Aaron’s sister had an idea. “Maybe we should change ‘rise and resist’ to ‘resist white supremacy,’ ” Lily Cox-Richard texted her. “That way, if someone

takes a picture of one of our signs to post and says they are ‘saddened’ or ‘disappointed,’ they will be explicitly revealing themselves as the racist that they are.” So on Friday afternoon, down came “Rise & Resist” and up went “Resist White Supremacy.” About an hour later, a message from a woman named Rebecca popped up in Cox Farms’ Facebook Messenger inbox:
“Yes, generally speaking, we are comfortable excluding white supremacists.” AARON COX-LEOW, responding in a Facebook comment to someone who said her farm’s sign did not have an “inclusive message”
“Whatever your own personal agendas are none us want to see them on display at a place we once enjoyed going to for tradition. It’s TRULY disappointing.” The vitriol only intensified in the hours that followed, which baffled Aaron. Who, other than a white supremacist, would be offended by a message condemning white supremacy? On Saturday — in a Facebook post that has drawn more than 43,000 reactions and nearly 15,000 shares — she addressed the furor. “Our little roadside signs have power,” Aaron, 36, began, before explaining why they sometimes shared their opinions. “Cox Farms is a small family-owned and family-operated business. ... Our shared values and principles are central to our business.” On Monday, Aaron wrote a follow-up post, thanking the thousands of people who had offered support (and who vastly outnumbered the critics). “We are white people using our privilege and power to say something that should be obvious but clearly still needs to be said,” she wrote, “and there’s nothing brave about that.” JOHN WOODROW COX (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Shots fired at vehicle that crashed at NSA
Parade’s cost could be from $10M to $30M
FORT MEADE, MD. Two people were in federal custody Wednesday and a third person was recovering from injuries after authorities said the driver of a rented sport utility vehicle tried to enter a secured area of the topsecret National Security Agency. Authorities quickly concluded the incident was not terrorism. By afternoon, an FBI spokesman said one theory being investigated was whether the driver mistakenly turned onto a restricted parkway exit and panicked when he saw heavily armed police. “Until we complete all the interviews, we just can’t say definitively,” said David Fitz, the spokesman. Other aspects of the inquiry were either not divulged or not yet known, including who fired gunshots into the SUV’s windshield and how the vehicle crashed into a concrete barrier and wound up facing oncoming traffic headed into a parking lot. Officials said they don’t believe any of the people hurt were hit by bullets. In addition to the hospitalized driver, whose condition officials did not reveal, an NSA police officer and a bystander were hurt, but not seriously. Those injuries occurred shortly before 7 a.m. during the final confrontation at a visitors

Officials ruled out terrorism after authorities said a black SUV tried to enter a secured area early Wednesday at the National Security Agency in Maryland.
gate. Television images showed a black SUV with bullet holes in its windshield. Gordon Johnson, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore field office, said that “preliminarily, gunfire was directed at the vehicle.” He declined to say whether any NSA police officers fired at the SUV. Fitz said authorities ran the names of the three occupants of the SUV through databases and came up with no link to terrorism. Johnson said agents were in the process of interviewing the occupants and searching the SUV. “This is part of our investigation, to understand what happened here today,” he said. “We are trying to talk to them to find out why they were here.” It is not uncommon for motorists to take an exit in error from the Baltimore-Washington
Parkway to the NSA. A brown sign at the exit, similar to those used to mark national parks, says “NSA” and has an arrow pointing up the ramp to the site. Below the “NSA”, in large type, the sign states “Restricted Entrance.” Most drivers who wrongly take the exit are turned back by heavily armed police. In March 2015, a 27-year-old man died after the stolen SUV he was in crashed outside the NSA. Ricky S. Hall was one of two men police fired on as the vehicle he was in hit a police cruiser before he made it onto the NSA campus. Officials in that incident said the driver may have mistakenly taken a restricted exit to an NSA security post and ignored police orders to stop, possibly because there were drugs inside the SUV.

President Trump’s military parade in D.C. would cost between $10 million and $30 million, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said Wednesday. Mulvaney offered the estimate during questioning by the House Budget Committee. He said the White House hasn’t budgeted for the parade and would rely on Congress to appropriate funds or use money that already has been approved. It was the first cost estimate for the parade Trump has directed the Pentagon to plan to hold later this year. Democrats and some Republicans have questioned the need for such an event, suggesting it could have authoritarian overtones depending on how it’s conducted. (TWP)

are police sirens outside. I’m in the auditorium and the doors are locked.” A few minutes later, he texted again: “I’m fine.” Authorities told parents to gather at a nearby hotel to get information. “I’m scared for the other parents here. You can see the concern in everybody’s faces. Everybody is asking, ‘Have you heard from your child yet?’ ” Murray said.
Christopher Giles of Albuquerque, N.M. — whom police described as “single, lonely and disturbed” — felt as though he knew YouTube personalities Gavin Free, 29, and Megan Turney, 30. Late last month, police said, Giles drove 11 hours to visit them uninvited in Austin, Texas. He carried a .45-caliber handgun. Free and Turney had packaged routine life moments — hiking in the woods, eating candy from Japan, playing with a cat — into hundreds of clips that drew millions of viewers. Couples like them who gain a large following can earn hundreds of thousands of dollars in sponsorship deals. But with fame, some YouTube couples have become targets of their obsessed fans. That’s what police said happened Jan. 26 in Austin, when Giles fired into the couple’s house, shattering glass so he could enter. Free and Turney, who hid and called 911, were not injured. Police said Giles was fatally shot after he fired a shot after officers arrived outside the house. Recent court documents suggest Giles went to the couple’s home because he had become infatuated and infuriated with them. “Giles developed a fondness of Turney yet resented Free for his lifestyle and success,” a search warrant stated.

PARKLAND, FLA. A former student opened fire at a Florida high school Wednesday, killing at least 17 people and sending scores of students fleeing into the streets, police said. It is the nation’s deadliest school shooting since a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Frantic parents rushed to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where SWAT team members and ambulances had surrounded the campus. Live footage showed emergency workers who appeared to be treating the wounded on sidewalks. “It is a horrific situation,” Superintendent Robert Runcie said. “It is a horrible day for us.” The 19-year-old suspect was taken into custody without incident about an hour after he left the school, authorities said. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the suspect, who was previously expelled for disciplinary reasons, had at least one rifle and multiple magazines. Most of the fatalities were inside the building, though some were found fatally shot outside, Israel said. The gunman was identified as Nicolas Cruz by a U.S. official briefed on the investigation. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the information publicly. Noah Parness, a 17-year-old junior, said he and the other students calmly went outside to their fire-drill areas after an alarm sounded when he suddenly heard popping sounds. “We saw a bunch of teachers running down the stairway, and then everybody shifted and broke into a sprint,” Parness said. “I hopped a fence.” Beth Feingold said her daughter, Brittani, sent a text at 2:32
Thinking a fire alarm was a drill, some students walked out of the school only to hear gunshots.

A half-dozen people had been climbing near Mount Hood’s peak when a climber fell about 1,000 feet, said a spokesman for the Clackamas County sheriff’s office. The man was airlifted by an Oregon Army National Guard helicopter to a hospital and later declared dead. Climbers used cellphones to report that conditions were hazardous and described the falling rocks and ice as “like a bowling alley.” Mount Hood is notorious for loose ice and rocks in warm weather.

Puerto Rico’s Housing Department said Wednesday it will suspend a $133 million deal with a U.S. company hired to repair homes damaged by Hurricane Maria after a review board found the contract was improperly awarded.

Housing Secretary Fernando Gil said his agency is evaluating other options to avoid interrupting home repairs. Officials have said the hurricane destroyed 70,000 to 75,000 homes and damaged another 300,000. (AP)

Along with the Russian military, which has waged a military campaign in Syria backing the government since 2015, thousands of Russians have reportedly fought there as private contractors. That allowed the Kremlin to keep the official death toll from its campaign in Syria low, helping to avoid negative publicity about Russia’s involvement in Syria as President Vladimir Putin seeks re-election.

Senate reaches bipartisan plan Immigration deal meets Trump’s demands on ‘Dreamers,’ border wall
DOUGLASS LIFE AND LEGACY
SUSAN WALSH (AP)
IMMIGRATION Senate moderates reached a bipartisan agreement Wednesday aimed at balancing Democrats’ fight to offer citizenship to young “Dreamer” immigrants with President Trump’s demands for billions to build his coveted border wall with Mexico, participants in those talks said. Trump urged lawmakers Wednesday to oppose any plan that doesn’t meet his more stringent demands, which include curbs on legal immigration. His comments raised questions about whether the compromise could attract the 60 votes needed to move through the Senate. But so far, no package from either side seems able to do that. The proposal emerged after a third day of debate. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he wants the Senate to finish considering immigration legislation this week. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Mike Rounds, R-S.D., said the proposal would grant a 10- to 12-year route to citizenship for Dreamers, with Graham saying it would cover 1.8 million of them. That’s the same number Trump has suggested helping
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he wants the Senate to finish immigration legislation this week.
with his own proposal. Dreamers are young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and have no permanent protection from deportation. The two senators said the plan would provide $25 billion over a decade for a wall and other border security measures, an amount Trump has requested. It would bar Dreamers from sponsoring their parents for citizenship, they said — well short of a Trump proposal to prevent all legal immigrants from bringing parents and siblings to the U.S. The moderates’ measure does not alter a lottery that distributes about 55,000 visas annually to people from diverse countries. Trump has proposed ending it and redistributing its visas to others. ALAN FRAM AND KEVIN FREKING (AP)

South African President Jacob Zuma resigned, saying he was “victimized.”
Zuma leaves post, avoids ouster vote SOUTH AFRICA South African President Jacob Zuma resigned Wednesday in a televised address to the nation, avoiding his almost certain ouster in a parliamentary vote that was scheduled for today after years of corruption scandals. Zuma’s resignation came after the ruling African National Congress party instructed him to leave office by the end of Wednesday or face the motion of no confidence in parliament. His departure set the stage for ruling party lawmakers to elect acting president Cyril Ramaphosa as Zuma’s successor. “I have therefore come to the decision to resign as president of the republic with immediate effect,” said Zuma, 75, adding that he disagreed with the ANC’s
demand that he quit. The former president was defiant in a TV interview earlier Wednesday, saying he had done nothing wrong. “I’m being victimized here,” Zuma told state broadcaster SABC. He complained that ANC leaders had not given him clear reasons about why he should go. The ANC, which has led South Africa since the end of white minority rule in 1994, wanted Zuma to end his second five-year term early so it could build up support ahead of 2019 elections. Zuma could face corruption charges tied to an arms deal two decades ago. In another scandal, South Africa’s top court ruled in 2016 that Zuma violated the constitution in using state funds to upgrade his private home. CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA (AP)

In January, The Wall Street Journal reported a limited liability company in Delaware formed by Cohen made the six-figure payment to the actress to keep her from discussing the affair during the presidential campaign. Cohen said the payment was made with his own money, and that “neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.” He was responding to inquiries from the Federal Election Commission, which is investigating an advocacy group’s complaint that the October 2016 transaction violated campaign finance laws. The payment was not reported as an expenditure nor an in-kind contribution, and the origin of the money is still unclear, said Paul Ryan, a vice president at the group that filed the complaint.
Stormy is going to tell her story,” Rodriguez said. At issue is what, exactly, happened inside a Lake Tahoe, Nev., hotel room in 2006 between Trump, then a reality TV star, and Clifford, who was promoting a porn production company during a celebrity golf tournament. Since the encounter, Clifford has claimed that she and Trump
had sex once and then carried on a subsequent years-long platonic relationship. But she has also, through a lawyer, denied the two had an affair. Trump’s lawyer, Cohen, has denied there was ever an affair. Her story remained largely out of public view until a month before the 2016 presidential election, when the website The

Many aides blame Kelly
Trump denounces abuse
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is investigating the White House’s employment of Porter, above. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the panel’s chairman, sent letters Wednesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House chief of staff John Kelly asking for information on what they knew about the allegations and when they knew it.
A growing number of aides blame Kelly for the bungled handling of the allegations against Porter. Trump has begun musing about possible replacements, according to people with knowledge of the talks. Kelly is “a big fat liar,” said one White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “To put it in terms the general would understand, … [this] amounts to dereliction of duty.”
Breaking his silence about abuse, President Trump said Wednesday that he’s “totally opposed to domestic violence,” adding that “everybody knows” his position, but “now you hear it.” Trump had praised Porter on Friday in his first comments about the claims. And on Saturday, Trump tweeted: “Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation.”
Secretary of VA scolded over his travel expenses
JAKE PEARSON AND JEFF HORWITZ (AP)
POLITICS Stormy Daniels, the porn star whom Donald Trump’s attorney acknowledges paying $130,000 just before Election Day, believes she is now free to discuss an alleged sexual encounter with the man who is now president, her manager told The Associated Press on Wednesday. At the same time, developments in the bizarre case are fueling questions about whether such a payment could violate federal campaign finance laws. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, believes that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, invalidated a non-disclosure agreement after two news stories were published Tuesday: one in which Cohen told The New York Times he made the six-figure payment with his personal funds, and another in the Daily Beast, which reported that Cohen was shopping a book proposal that would touch on Daniels’ story, said the manager, Gina Rodriguez. “Everything is off now, and

POLITICS The chief of staff for Veterans Affairs Secretary David J. Shulkin doctored an email and made false statements to create a pretext for taxpayers to cover expenses for the secretary’s wife on a 10-day trip to Europe last summer, the agency’s inspector general has found. Vivieca Wright Simpson, the VA’s third-most-senior official, altered language in an email from an aide coordinating the trip to make it appear that Shulkin was receiving an award from the Danish government, then used the award to justify paying for his wife’s travel, Inspector General Michael J. Missal said in a report released Wednesday. The VA paid more than $4,300 for her airfare. Shulkin also improperly accepted a gift of tickets to a Wimbledon tennis match, the investigation found. “Although the [IG’s office] cannot determine the value VA gained from the Secretary and his delegation’s … meetings in Copenhagen and London at a cost of at least $122,334, the investigation revealed serious derelictions by VA personnel,” the watchdog concluded. In a response to Missal, Shulkin called the portrayal of the trip “entirely inaccurate” and said it “reeks of an agenda.” Shulkin, a holdover from the Obama White House, is one of five current and former Trump Cabinet members being probed over their travel expenses.

Kaepernick’s team targets Papa John The security of being under contract for five years could help endear Alex Smith to fans and teammates.
RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU
QB comparison: Switch to Smith changes very little In Alex Smith, the Redskins have found a plug-and-play passer. The pending trade for the former Chiefs quarterback might fool Redskins fans into thinking Kirk Cousins is staying on. In coach Jay Gruden’s offense, a scheme that features the quick timing routes at which Smith and Cousins both excel, this fall may not seem too different. Smith is four years older than Cousins, who will turn 30 in August and is expected to enter free agency when the league year opens March 14.
Maybe Smith will venture out of the pocket a little more than his predecessor did, but Cousins has underrated athleticism, and the two play their position with a similar style. They both do well in the intermediate game. Smith’s 11.1 yards per completion over the past five years is slightly worse than Cousins’ 11.6 during the past three years as a full-time starter. Both complete a high portion of throws. Smith connected on 65.1 percent as the starter in Kansas City, and Cousins made 67 percent in the past two years. Their passer ratings as starters — 94.7 for Smith and 97.5 for Cousins
— are similar, too. Cousins is coming off three straight 4,000-yard passing seasons, while Smith just managed his first in 2017. But then, Smith regularly had a running back who gained 1,000 yards, while Cousins was on his own to move the offense. Smith’s one edge may come on deep throws. While both quarterbacks have been criticized for their ability to throw long, Smith was rated by Pro Football Focus as the NFL’s best deep passer in 2017, leading the league in yards (1,344), rating (131.4) and adjusted completion percentage (56.5) on throws targeted at least 20 yards beyond the line. Washington agreed to give Smith a $94 million, four-year extension that kicks in after he plays for $17 million in 2018. Cousins will draw more on the open market, and the Redskins might have saved enough to keep linebacker Zach Brown. The key to improving the offense will be upgrading Smith’s targets. Even if
Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed stay healthy, Washington doesn’t know if Josh Doctson can be a consistent playmaker. Smith, who will keep the chains moving by minimizing risks and committing few mistakes, has a big advantage over Cousins as far as fans and teammates are concerned: Smith has been given security. He’s not on a one-year deal like Cousins has been for two seasons. There were times last year when the pressure of the contract drama looked to wear on Cousins, when he played antsy and forced the ball. Smith should be able to relax and look for second reads. Smith has spent the past week talking about how “jacked” he is to play for the Redskins, and how he seems to run into fans everywhere. Unlike Cousins, his new teammates won’t have to look at him as a short-term leader.
Colin Kaepernick’s attorneys are seeking depositions from John Schnatter, the former CEO of Papa John’s, according to reports Tuesday. The legal team is trying to produce evidence of collusion by the NFL to keep him out of the league, as part of a grievance the former 49ers quarterback filed in October. Schnatter founded Papa John’s, the pizza chain and NFL corporate partner, but he was forced out as CEO in December after he blamed disappointing sales on player protests — like those sparked by Kaepernick — during the national anthem. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was suspected of instigating Schnatter’s comments. If true, that could be important evidence. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Wieters arrives 14 pounds lighter NATIONALS Spring training is upon us, which means players will declare they’ve reported to camp this week in the best shape of their lives. Most are justifiably met with eyerolls. But for Matt Wieters, an offseason makeover was a requirement.
If he is going to rebound from his worst year in professional baseball and, at 31, remain an everyday catcher in 2018 with free agency looming, he cannot continue as one of the least productive players in the majors. It’s a matter of survival. So Wieters slimmed down over the winter with a combination of better eating habits and more rigorous workouts. He reported to camp Wednesday at 224 pounds after finishing last

I … feel better this spring than I did last spring.” Wieters’ dreadful 2017 season, when he batted .225 with a .632 OPS and posted a FanGraphs wins-above-replacement rating
of negative-0.2, began with a strange offseason. First, he sliced his left wrist when he dropped a water jug in his garage in early November. The accident held him back for most of the winter and was part of the reason he was still a free agent in mid-February. When he signed with Washington, he reported to spring training a week late out of shape and behind. A poor season led Wieters to exercise his $10.5 million player option in November rather than test the market. This year, he expects his familiarity with the pitching staff to allow him more time to work on his swing with new hitting coach Kevin Long. JORGE CASTILLO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

White’s whale of a run
CAMERON SPENCER PHOTOS (GETTY IMAGES)
American completes comeback story with golden tricks on his final attempt SNOWBOARDING The durability of snowboarding, both as an Olympic event and a sport capable of lingering on the edge of the mainstream, can now be validated by its capacity for reinvention. It has been around long enough, and grown embedded enough in cultural consciousness, to facilitate second acts. Shaun White was 19 and raggedy when he won his first gold medal, 23 and exultant when he won his second, 27 and corporate when he suffered a letdown. Wednesday afternoon on PyeongChang Halfpipe in South Korea, White completed his competitive revival at 31 with a reinforcement and a declaration. He remains the unquestioned greatest snowboarder ever, and he is once again the unquestioned greatest in the world. White clinched the third Olympic gold medal of his career with a final run of extreme daring, towering athleticism and supreme clutch. He beat a loaded field by making the final run of the contest the best run — not only of PyeongChang, but perhaps in the history of the sport. “I knew I did it,” White said.
Harassment allegations Shaun White apologized Wednesday on NBC for telling reporters after he won gold that allegations made against him in a 2016 sexual harassment lawsuit were “gossip.” Details of the case, which was settled out of court, have resurfaced in light of the #MeToo movement. (EXPRESS)
Shaun White took the lead on his first run and reclaimed it on his third.
“I knew I put it down.” In his earlier Olympic triumphs, White could be assured none of his competitors had the ability to approach his best runs. That wasn’t the case Wednesday, not against 19-year-old Japanese sensation Ayumu Hirano, Australian Scotty James and even fellow American Ben Ferguson. Before his third and final run, White knew he had to execute something unprecedented. White trailed Hirano, who had posted a 95.25 in his second run to best the monstrous 94.25 White put down in response to a

92.00 from James. White was the last man on the mountain. He dropped in. He hit consecutive 1440s and back-toback 1260s, one of those with a flair called the Tomahawk. When he crossed the line, White raised both arms in the air. He watched and waited. Silence replaced mayhem. The score flashed: 97.75. White flipped his board in the air, letting it spin just like its owner. He dropped to his knees and dabbed at his face. Shaun White, a goofy hell-raiser when America first fell for him, had

Olsen was at the Alpensia Sliding Center on Wednesday with U.S. coach Brian Shimer, checking out the venue. It was the first time that Olsen — who was a member of the 2010 four-man, gold-winning team in a sled driven by the late Steven Holcomb — ventured out since his laparoscopic surgery.

The latest iteration of the Russian Red Machine started its Olympic tournament against Slovakia on Wednesday and lost 3-2.

Peter Ceresnak then scored the game-winner with a slapshot in the third. “This is a tournament of big surprises,” said Ceresnak, who plays in the Czech league. “Every team here can beat every other team.” The Russians entered as favorites to win the first Olympics since 1994 without NHL players.

Captain Jan Mursak — Slovenia’s only player with NHL experience — scored the tying goal with 1:37 left in regulation and the winner 38 seconds into OT.

up front For $1, explore Tudor Place
TOURS Designed by the original architect of the U.S. Capitol and home to more publicly displayed George and Martha Washington artifacts and memorabilia than anywhere outside of Mount Vernon, Tudor Place Historic House and Garden (1644 31st St. NW) is a worthy destination for history buffs. But the 51/2 -acre Georgetown estate often gets lost amid Washington’s historical sites. Now is the perfect time to discover Tudor Place’s collection:
The museum is offering $1 admission through the end of February, and the hour-long guided tours prove it’s a rarity among historical houses. (Tours are offered hourly, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon-3 p.m. Sundays. Admission usually costs $10 for adults; kids 5 and younger get in free regardless.) The estate was purchased by Martha Parke Custis Peter, the granddaughter of Martha Washington, and her husband, Thomas Peter, in 1805, using money that

This Tudor Place office looks like it did in the 1920s — except for the people.
George Washington left them in his will. For almost two centuries, Tudor Place remained in the Peter family, with many of the furnishings and the building’s character staying intact, even as the house was modernized.
It opened as a museum in 1988. Avid collectors, the Peters purchased numerous items from estate sales at Mount Vernon after Martha Washington’s death. Later generations carefully inventoried and labeled the artifacts so they’d know which ones came from
Mount Vernon. But the house, famous for its two-story, glass-fronted portico overlooking the Potomac River, is about much more than Things That Belonged to the Washingtons. Because the Peters, in the words of a tour guide, “never threw anything away,” different rooms are decorated to show vignettes of life from the early 19th century through the middle of the 20th: musical instruments, a hand-built child’s model of the Wright Flyer, an office with historical typewriters and phones, and a closet full of couture fashions. Admission to the sprawling gardens is included — which makes for a great reason to visit Tudor Place again in the spring. FRITZ HAHN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Back in the day, I used to work with Jon [Taub], the head chef there, at [now-closed] Pound the Hill. He’s from Philly, I was born in Philadelphia, and I’ve always sought out really good Philly cheesesteaks. He’s got the best one, in my opinion, in or out of Philly. So that’s why I’d go: One, I get to say hi to my buddy, and two, I get to have the best Philly cheesesteak I’ve ever had. And I would probably get marinara sauce on the side, because I like to add that to my Philly cheesesteak. I think we’d refer to that as a pizza steak.

I would hop on my bicycle and head toward Vigilante Coffee, even if I wasn’t working, to have a pastry and a coffee. I’d probably make it a pour-over: a Red Gesha from Colombia. It’s a really beautiful floral and sweet coffee. And I would enjoy a kouign amann from Souk.
I live in the neighborhood, so it’s nice to have a cup of coffee with people as opposed to just serving it up. Now we’re gonna hop on the bicycle and take the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail about 16 miles — it’ll take about 35 to 45 minutes. It’s a really beautiful trail. And then I’d probably be at The Wharf in time to swing by The Anthem. I’d check out what show is coming, maybe grab tickets. And we have a coffee cart there, so I’d make sure it’s good for the upcoming show.
If I’m being honest, I would probably go by the dispensary and pick up a joint and then enjoy that. I would go to Capital City Care, which is my dispensary, and I would specifically get the sativa strain Pineapple Express, which is my favorite strain that’s grown locally by a gro-op in Northeast D.C. That one just really does it for me. I really like Malcolm X Park, so I’d probably go over there and just relax for a minute. I would go to Right Proper Brewing Company, the original one, and I would get a Vigilante Coffee beer, because they made one using our coffee called the Coffee Haxan. I saw recently that they made this one; they posted it online. Sometimes I’m the last to know. Now, while Right Proper has good food, I’d head over to my boy Rob Rubba’s spot, Hazel, and I’d have the kimchi ragu, which will change your life. Later in the evening, I’d probably go to 9:30 Club, because I really love catching live music. 9:30 Club is the perfect-sized venue, in my opinion. Then I’d probably call an UberXL and put my bike in the trunk, so I don’t have to bicycle all the way home to Hyattsville. Until then, I’d still be on it all the way until the very end.

It’s not supposed to be doing that. “You know what?” says Joel Krause, production manager for Arena Stage’s current show “The Great Society,” peering down at the obstinate flame. “I bet we got some blood on it.” Krause suspects a rogue splatter of the crew’s corn syrup-based mixture might be fueling the small fire. It’s the type of thing that can happen when you stage a play full of wounded soldiers, police brutality and peaceful marches that were met with violence. “The Great Society,” which follows Lyndon Johnson during the later years of his presidency,
is set during a turbulent era in America that included the Selma to Montgomery march (and the attacks on participants by law enforcement on the Edmund Pettus Bridge), the Watts riots and the beginnings of the antiwar movement. To represent all that, Krause had to figure out how to deliver riots, blood and fire onstage. “The starting point is, ‘Oh, my God, they want WHAT?’ ” Krause says of his reaction when director Kyle Donnelly came to him with his needs. “Setting the stage on fire is usually a bad thing.” After some tinkering, “it very quickly became clear that this is something more than we can do in-house,” Krause says. They called in a New York company, J&M Special Effects, for help. The system they landed on combines gas lines, camping-stove fuel and a crew member, Kyle Handziak,

“The Great Society” is the concluding half of Robert Schenkkan’s two plays about Lyndon Johnson’s presidency, following “All the Way,” which ran at Arena Stage in 2016. This sequel takes place from 1965 to 1968, as LBJ (Jack Willis, reprising his role) has to contend with ongoing pressure for civil rights from Martin Luther King Jr. (Bowman Wright, also from “All the Way”), his desire to pass Medicare and other anti-poverty legislation, rising U.S. involvement in Vietnam and internal threats from his own party, led by Robert Kennedy (John Scherer).

who gets to push all the buttons. In the space Arena Stage typically uses as the orchestra pit, there are three unassuming black boxes, each of which contains the
moving parts for one of three fire effects used during “The Great Society.” The first is deployed after a character throws a Molotov cocktail; the second is used to simulate the smoldering L.A. ruins after the Watts riots; the third generates a roughly 6-foothigh burst of flame that’s part of an anti-Vietnam War demonstration. Off in the corner is a little nook where Handziak sits and sets off each effect. The effects are fueled by MSR IsoPro, a blend of isobutane and propane. “You buy it at REI,” Krause says. “I called them and said, ‘I’m gonna buy a LOT of this.’ They were probably thinking, ‘What are you doing!?’ ” Handziak also has a big red button that can shut the whole thing down instantly in case of emergency; in addition, when each effect goes off, two crew members are just offstage with

fire extinguishers. The D.C. fire marshal’s office had to sign off on all of it. “We don’t want to put anyone in any real danger,” Krause says. “We just want it to feel dangerous.” After the fire comes the blood, which posed its own problems for the crew. “For the most part, we’ve been using a product called ‘blood juice,’ but it’s corn syrup-based, so once it gets on the [stage] it gets sticky, and you start getting that sticky-sneaker sound,” Krause says. “We’re experimenting with another formula that’s based on laundry detergent, but, not surprisingly, that’s incredibly slick when you put that on the floor. We decided that was a really bad idea.” They eventually stuck with the blood juice (and found a way around the sticky-sneaker sound, judging by its absence during a recent performance). “The Great Society,” which opened Feb. 2, also requires an immense array of costumes and props, video projections and a set that at one point features a huge number of black combat boots. “We called everyone to borrow theirs,” Krause says. “Shakespeare Theatre, Round House, everyone. You’re seeing almost every boot in Washington theater.” (Except for the Washington National Opera’s. They were using theirs.) It’s challenges like these that make a show more interesting, Krause says — challenges like that little light that won’t go out under the stage. As they conduct their pre-show fire test, Krause and three crew members peer down an onstage grate and debate what might be causing the flame. Turns out it isn’t the blood’s fault: Residual gas that had lingered a bit too long in one of the black boxes is keeping the fire burning. After about 30 seconds, the flame finally flickers out. Then Krause is off to make sure everything else is ready for tonight’s show of blood, sweat and fire. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

A show full of sellouts existence? If so, you must have been alive before the 1980s, the decade that set the stage for the modern consumer culture
For this untitled 1987 piece, graphic artist Barbara Kruger changed a well-known philosophical quote into a statement on consumption — and then put it on a business card. “It’s a response to how the world of commodity and shopping and corporations had come to define identities,” Hirshhorn chief curator Stephane Aquin says.
This 1989 piece by Jessica Diamond called “T.V. Telepathy” makes the implicit message of many advertisements abundantly clear, with 5-foot-tall letters that take up an entire wall. The relatively crude, handwritten letters contrast with the increasingly sophisticated visual language of 1980s advertising.
we’re all immersed in today. That’s the premise of “Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s,” a new Hirshhorn exhibit that shows how artists grappled with those trends. “Today, brands are how we live our lives, how we define our identity — all trends that took off in 1980s,” says Stephane Aquin, the Hirshhorn’s chief curator. “This is also the first moment when artists began reacting against this state of affairs.” Some ’80s artists used the tools of advertising in subversive ways, while others embraced the commodification of art by turning themselves into bona fide brand names. “Brand New” includes witty responses to the decade of consumption from more than 60 artists: megastars like Jeff Koons as well as many overlooked female artists of the time. Here are some highlights from the show — just for the taste of it. SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)

Umphrey’s McGee singer Brendan Bayliss, bottom center, helped found the band while he was a student at the University of Notre Dame in 1998.
Umphrey’s McGee was one of the first bands to pioneer directto-CD live recordings, burning CDs of shows right after they were over. The group became an early adopter of Twitter, sending out setlists live during shows; started a record label, Nothing Too Fancy Music, in 2014; and even experimented with virtual reality for a music video. “We started in 1998 and when I graduated from Notre Dame [that year] I had an email address but I had probably used it three times,” Bayliss says, adding that the group’s tech savvy may have just been a result of the internet evolving as they did. In recent years, as three band members became parents, they’ve changed up their touring priorities, setting a schedule where they go out on the road for only four days at a time, so they
can fly home and be with their families the rest of the week. (The group headlines The Anthem for the first time with the Marcus King Band on Thursday.) “It’s way more expensive, but it’s way more livable and manageable and it sets it up for another 20 years,” Bayliss says. “The burnout factor significantly decreases when you see the light at the end of the tunnel every week. We just had a month off in November and when we all met up for shows, we were happy to see each other and get out and not have to get up at 6 a.m. and change a diaper. By doing it sporadically and trimming the unnecessary nights, I don’t see why we wouldn’t want to keep doing it.”

When this untitled piece was made in 1982 by Canadian artist Ken Lum, it consisted of four rented couches turned inward to form an impenetrable square, transforming the furniture into a useless display of conspicuous consumption. “It’s both inviting and not at all at the same exact time,” curatorial assistant Sandy Guttman says. The Hirshhorn has re-created the piece, following Lum’s directions, using couches purchased from Macy’s and covered in fabric reminiscent of the 1980s.
MUSIC Last month, Umphrey’s McGee celebrated 20 years as a band with a career-spanning show at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The week prior, the band gave fans an early birthday present by releasing its 11th studio album, “it’s not us.” For singer-guitarist Brendan Bayliss, the 20-year milestone marks more than just the passage of time. “It’s very surreal,” says Bayliss, an Annapolis native. “At the same time, it also feels very legitimate to me because I don’t know many people who do anything for 20 years. It feels kinda justified — all of our efforts and blind faith.” Despite the album’s name, “it’s not us” plays like an 11-song sampler of the six-piece jam band’s varied styles: There’s synthesizerinfused dance pop, heavy metal riffs, acoustic balladry, proggy rock and jazzy interludes. Part of that diversity is inherent in the group’s genre-defying sound; part of it is a reflection of the way they approached recording. “We went in with a massive pile of half-finished ideas or old songs we’d never gotten to, so we went in with the mission of, Let’s get as much done as we possibly can and figure it out later,” Bayliss says. “We didn’t really talk about it. The best ones will float to the top.” Umphrey’s McGee has endured not with radio hits or bestselling albums but by finding a niche and changing with the times. The band built a dedicated following across the country thanks to ever-changing setlists, spot-on cover songs, yearly destination concerts and fan-friendly innovations. In the early 2000s,

Jeff Koons’ 1983 billboard “New! New Too!” skewers the way advertisers can put the word “new” on a picture of any product and make it seem innovative and exciting. The roughly 10-by-23-foot piece looks like a real billboard advertisement, but it’s never been displayed outside. “The moment we call it art, the moment we put it in a gallery, it changes the meaning,” curatorial assistant Sandy Guttman says.

Hear the revolution
The day Michael Brown was shot and killed by police — Aug. 9, 2014 — was the day a new generation of black activists was born. Then: DeRay Mckesson was a math teacher-turned-school administrator living in Minneapolis who watched footage of the ensuing protests for a few days and then tweeted “En route to Ferguson” to his 1,000 or so Twitter followers. Now: Mckesson, who live-tweeted the protests from the scene, is one of the most prominent faces of the Black Lives Matter movement and a full-time activist and organizer. “I saw a movement be born, and that changed so much 32, who’s amassed more than 1 million Twitter followers. The Baltimore native has since moved back to his hometown, and in 2016 he even attempted a mayoral run there (he finished sixth in the Democratic primary). Mckesson works to fight oppression in myriad ways, including as host of “Pod Save the People,” a podcast featuring conversations about culture and social justice. It’s produced by Crooked Media, a left-leaning media company started by former Obama staffers. Mckesson will be in D.C. this weekend for the podcast’s first live taping. ANGELA HAUPT (FOR EXPRESS) Lincoln Theatre, 1215 U St. NW; Sun., 8 p.m., $35. Guests at the live show include civil rights leader Ben Jealous and Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery. How do you select your guests? I started the podcast because I wanted people to learn, and I wanted to have conversations that weren’t happening at other places. I want [the live taping] to be an experience for people — I don’t want it to simply be the podcast in person, because you don’t need to come in person to listen to a podcast. We’re going to have some surprises that help maximize having so many like-minded people in one place together. I talk to [podcast regulars] Clint [Smith], Sam [Sinyangwe] and Brittany [Packnett] every day, but we’re rarely all ever together. We record the podcast separately, over the phone — we haven’t all four ever been in one place when we
record — so I’m excited to be all physically together. What was your goal when you launched “Pod Save the People”? I have a big following on Twitter, and Twitter has been invaluable for mobilizing and quickly sharing information. But I’m not really sure that people are learning deep content on Twitter. I made the podcast so I could talk to [Edward] Snowden and ask him about the intersection of race and security, or have a conversation with Reza Aslan about faith and social justice. We can do things with the medium that the digital platform just doesn’t allow as well, and I want people to walk away knowing more than they did before. What has you really riled up right now?

That’s just an incredible amount of money being targeted in one way. What can we do to combat the resource mobilization the right will be able to do given [the investment]? What’s your advice for someone who wants to get involved and doesn’t know where to start? Find an issue that’s important to you, and be as curious and close to it as possible. A lot of organizers are trying to figure out: How do we create entrances for people so they can be involved in the work in a way that makes them feel is aligned to the things they’re interested in, and not the things the organizer is interested

in? I think it’s an open question, and in many ways, it’s like we’re just starting. As you do your daily work and fight for progress, do you ever — especially in today’s climate — feel discouraged or depressed? I think hope is the belief that tomorrow can be better than today, and I don’t lose hope. I’ve seen so many people find their power and their voice over the past three years, and that gives me a lot of hope. Like the protests in Ferguson — we didn’t know they would spread across the country, right? So many people came to St. Louis uncoordinated, and the protests spread immediately, and that was really powerful. So the single biggest thing that gives me hope and courage is seeing an incredible amount of activism across the country that has been organic.

Brittney Cooper is mad, and she’s not afraid to show it. The author and cultural commentator has a unique ability to harness that anger in her writings on sexism, political extremism and other hot-button issues affecting black women. She explores the intersection of race and feminism in the classroom at Rutgers University, where she’s an associate professor of women’s and gender studies and Africana studies, and online as co-founder of the Crunk Feminist Collective blog and a contributing writer for cosmopolitan.com. In her new book “Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower,” out Tuesday, Cooper talks about love, sex, gender, friendship and cultural icons (and sometimes lightning rods) like Beyonce and Serena Williams. Cooper will discuss the book Wednesday at Politics and Prose with Damon Young, editor-in-chief of black culture website Very Smart Brothas. BETH LUBERECKI (FOR EXPRESS)

What does the term “eloquent rage” mean to you? Eloquent rage is a way to think about black women’s anger as a political response. Rather than thinking about anger as an emotion we should attempt to quell or suppress, that anger is the emotion that keeps us honest. Typically when you see black women’s anger being expressed in public, it is in response to systemic levels of injustice, and that anger is what I call clear and expressive. You know why black women are mad. In many
ways this book is a celebration of that rage in the face of the angry black woman stereotype. And what makes it your superpower? For a long time, I wanted to resist the angry black woman stereotype, because it dogs you. Anger is often ascribed to you even if you’re simply being assertive. I talk about this encounter early in the book, when one of my students years ago said she liked to listen to me lecture because it was like the most eloquent rage
she had ever heard. I felt really exposed. I had been attempting to hold that at bay, and for her it became a thing that made her feel empowered. I realized that I could either continue to do this dance around that anger, or I could embrace it and think about the ways it made me powerful. What do you see as the differences between being a feminist and being a black feminist? My understanding of what it means to be a feminist comes primarily out of thinking about how black women have had to combat these systems, whether in the workplace or in church or in their families, and to recognize that there are cultural differences. One classic example I talk about in the book is [how] black feminists and white feminists had really different responses when Michelle Obama decided she would become the “mom in chief.” White feminists read that as a rollback of the years of trying to challenge the idea that a woman’s role should be as a stay-at-home mother. Black feminists said black women made
it possible for white women to go out in the workplace because we took on some of that domestic labor at home. So we consider it a feminist thing for Michelle Obama to be able to make that choice at that high of a level. What do you hope people take away from this book? Some sense of hope and some sense that even if we don’t know how to fix all that ails us, we can tell the truth about the depths of our problems but also keep getting up every day and trying to fight. I also hope that people laugh. I’m not interested in a politics that is stuffy and inaccessible and alienating. We can have all these cultural arguments that exist above us in the clouds, but what does it look like every day to come home and try to contend with how racism or sexism shows up in your intimate life or with your friends? When we figure out politics at a personal level, then perhaps it wouldn’t be so hard to figure it out at the more structural level.

“SENSATIONAL” Civil rights activist Angela Davis and others discuss the path from slavery to mass incarceration for AfricanAmericans in “13th.”
–DC Theatre Scene
–DC Metro Theater Arts
–MD Theatre Guide
‘13th’ With certain awesome movies coming out on Netflix now (“Mudbound.” Have you seen “Mudbound?” See “Mudbound.”), it can be hard — if not impossible — to ever see them on the big screen. Ava DuVernay’s stunning 2016 documentary “13th,” about the constitutional amendment that officially ended slavery and its direct line to today’s prison-industrial complex and mass incarceration of African-American men, might be one of the most important documentaries in recent years. For $5 you can attend a special screening (we suggest buying tickets early) at the AFI Silver, and if you’re at all interested in civil rights, history or just basic fairness, the film’s absolutely a must-see. Oh, and by the way? The AFI is showing “Mudbound” on Feb. 25 and 27. AFI Silver, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring; Sun., 7:15 p.m., $5.
Say what you want about those teadrinking, posh-sounding, universalhealth-care-enjoying cousins of ours across the Atlantic, but the British can make some movies. The National Gallery is showing five rarely seen treasures from the British Film Institute National Archive in a series called “From Vault to Screen.” It kicks off on Sunday with 1929’s silent “The Informer,” the first adaptation of Liam O’Flaherty’s 1925 novel about the aftermath of the Irish Civil War. The series also includes Ken Russell’s “Women in Love,” the experimental “Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith” and “Wittgenstein,” starring Tilda Swinton. National
Think the Library of Congress is all stuffy and formal and joyless? Oh, you are so wrong. Thursday night, there’s a free screening of 1988’s “Beetlejuice,” because why not? (It’s actually part of the library’s monthlong “Monster Melodies” series.) Tim Burton’s messed-up look at the afterlife reflects the director’s style before he was defined (and bogged down) by it. Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin — young enough to remind you just how stunningly hot he was — star as a couple who buy their dream house, only to die shortly after. They probably didn’t watch enough “House Hunters”; that show can save lives. Mary Pickford

Krzysztof Wodiczko projection A three-story-high projection from American artist Krzysztof Wodiczko will be displayed on the exterior of the Hirshhorn on Thursday.

Cher The Theater at MGM National Harbor, 101 MGM National Ave., Oxon Hill, Md.; Sat., Sun., Tue., Feb. 22, Feb. 24 & Feb. 25, 8 p.m., $135-$327.
Celebrating a career of nearly 55 years, Cher is one of those artists who require no introduction. After all, how does one sum up more than 40 million records sold alongside partner Sonny Bono and, later, 100 million as a solo act? The diva was still managing to outdo herself as recently as 2013, when her album “Closer to the Truth” landed at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 — her highest solo debut ever. This week, Cher begins another residency at the Theater at MGM National Harbor.

Love Thy Beer: Winter Warmer Showcase This annual festival focuses on seasonal beers — it’s heavy on stouts, porters, barley wines and barrel-aged offerings — but features a wide selection of Maryland brewers. In addition to all-you-can-sample beer, the night includes live music and snacks. Silver Spring Civic Building, 1 Veterans Place, Silver Spring, Md.; Fri., 7-10 p.m., $55 (VIP: $75, entry at 6 p.m.).

The Valentine’s Love Jam The ’90s and early 2000s are widely considered a high point in R&B. Just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend come five of the era’s marquee acts, assembling for a night of love and heartbreak at EagleBank Arena. Singers Joe and Tyrese, with their soul-stirring vocals, will be the night’s only solo acts, while trios SWV and Next and Baltimore’s Dru Hill will offer their mix of romantic melodies. EagleBank Arena, 4500 Patriot Circle, Fairfax; Sat., 8 p.m., $59-$79.

D.C. Chinese New Year’s Parade
“The Love Funk Tour” features two musicians who normally stay behind the scenes. Mr. Talkbox, whose instrument of choice is the vocoder, has parlayed pop session work and covers of songs into a Grammy-winning collaboration with Bruno Mars (“24K Magic”). Cory Wong is a session guitarist who has been a part of NBC’s “The Voice” band and most recently joined rising funk outfit Vulfpeck, which named a song on last year’s album “The Beautiful Game” after him. The Hamilton, 600 14th St.
Snarky Puppy The Fillmore, 8656 Colesville Road, Silver Spring; Sun., 8 p.m., $33.
It’s hard to classify Snarky Puppy. Some have described the band as jazz fusion, while others have homed in on its improvisational techniques. The Brooklyn-based collective has been making compelling, genre-blurring songs for 14 years. The group rose to prominence on the road — just last year, after a third Grammy win, Snarky Puppy played huge venues around the world — but may be taking a breather soon before hitting the studio for a fresh album in 2018.
2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac. In that spirit, you’re invited to bring your pup to this year’s D.C. Chinese New Year’s Parade in Chinatown. Dressed-up dogs will join the traditional Chinese lions and dragons in this year’s parade, along with marchers from the community such as the Whitman High School Drumline. All the action is centered around Chinatown’s Friendship Archway. Don’t miss the firecracker finale. Starts at Sixth and I streets NW; Sun., 2 p.m., free.

that the Wakandans share their weapons — particularly with the oppressed peoples of the world, who could then use them to wreak havoc and take the power that has been denied them. “He’s a villain with really altruistic ideas,” says Coogler, who directed Jordan previously in “Creed” and “Fruitvale Station.” “One of the main questions of the film is, ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’ And for Wakanda, that answer has always been ‘nah.’ ” So “Black Panther” pits an African king from a society that has remained untouched by colonialism against an AfricanAmerican who has experienced the racism and discrimination that come with being descended
“I’m African, but no one told me about what that means. I was finally able to answer that question.” RYAN COOGLER, the director and a co-writer of Marvel’s latest, “Black Panther,” which opens Friday
from an enslaved people. Coogler says he wanted to explore the difference between being AfricanAmerican and being African with the film. “I thought that it was importa nt to i nfuse my own
perspective; I felt that was something I needed to do as an African-American black man,” Coogler says. Moreover, “I had a responsibility to do my homework and really penetrate the continent because my perspective is not the total perspective. “What does it mean to be African?” he continues. “It’s something I’ve been asking myself every day since I found out I was black, when my parents sat me down and said, ‘Yo, you’re black, that’s what this means’ — the conversation I feel like every black person has had to have. I’m African, but no one told me about what that means. I was finally able to answer that question.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
Ryan Murphy’s empire is expanding to Netflix
TV and film producer Ryan Murphy has signed a five-year deal to make new series and films exclusively for Netflix starting in July, the streaming service said Wednesday. Insiders told The New York Times that the deal is worth as much as $300 million. For much of his career, Murphy has produced series for Fox and FX, including “Glee,” “9-1-1,” “American Crime Story” and “American Horror Story.” (AP) Netflix renews “Grace and Frankie” for Season 5

FILM In some ways, “Black Panther” is a movie for young Ryan Coogler. “For me, coming up in the ’90s, we had three male stars that could front any kind of movie. They could act, they could do action, they could be funny, they were sexy,” says Coogler, the 31-year-old director and a co-writer of what may be the most hotly anticipated Marvel movie since … ever. “There was Denzel, Will and Wesley, and they were never in a movie together. [With “Black Panther,”] I got the chance to make that Denzel-Will Smith movie I never got to see.” “Black Panther,” which opens Friday, brings together two multi-talented stars who have fronted some big movies on their own: Chadwick Boseman, as the titular hero, and Michael B. Jordan, as villain Erik Killmonger. In the “Black Panther” comic book series as well as the film, Black Panther is the alter ego of T’Challa, the newly crowned king of the fictional African country of Wakanda. (Marvel movie fans will remember Black Panther from his stunning entrance in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War.”) The highly advanced society has set itself apart from the rest of the world, guarding its technological secrets. Killmonger, who grew up in America, would prefer
FILM Can the appeal of American music help reverse the downturn in international visitors coming stateside? U.S. tourism agency Brand USA hopes so, as it’s behind a new Imax film titled “America’s Musical Journey,” premiering at three Smithsonians on Saturday. Narrated by Morgan Freeman and starring Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc, the 40-minute film aims to show off America’s musical heritage to the world, as Blacc explores cities like New Orleans, Memphis, Detroit and Miami. Blacc says he hopes the movie sparks in viewers a “love for music,” adding, “I want them to learn about the growth of different genres that were born here in the U.S. like jazz, blues, rock, even hip-hop.” The film looks at the roots of African-American musical traditions in the South, starting with music brought here by enslaved Africans. That music developed into genres like gospel, the blues and jazz. The stories of the legendary trumpeter Louis Armstrong in New Orleans and rock ‘n’ roll icon Elvis Presley in Memphis are showcased along with scenes of break-dancers in Times Square, country music from Nashville and Motown in Detroit. “You’ll see all the best there is to see here in the U.S.,” Blacc says. “Politics aside, it’s a beautiful country.” BETH J.

“Louise Linton thinking she’s being sympathetic and ‘regular’ when talking about how much she loves Soul Cycle and calligraphy is so low key bonkers that it’s just extra bonkers.” @HASHTAG_JULIE, reacting to the Elle
profile of Louise Linton, wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who got into hot water over an Instagram comment last September. Trying to rehab her image, Linton told Elle that’s she’s “just a regular girl.” She added: “I’m not perfect, but I’m trying my best.”
“A pug named ‘Biggie’ won the Toy Group. Y’all spelled it wrong. It’s Notorious P.U.G.” @YAGILLYMONSTA, tweeting after Biggie the pug stole hearts
at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Biggie won best in breed in the toy group, but lost for best in show to a bichon frise named Flynn. Biggie was not even supposed to compete: He filled in for his cousin, a pug named Rumble, who died in June 2017. Joanna Rothkopf, writing for Jezebel, detailed her disappointment that Biggie did not win: “Am I devastated by Biggie’s short legs and paws and how they skittered across the show green? ... Do his round wet eyes make me want to denounce all other dogs in the town square, declaring my allegiance to Biggie and only Biggie? Yeah, you bet.”
“I don’t care if Shaun White wins all the gold medals in the world. He is not absolved of personal responsibility.” @MURPHYACKERMAN, tweeting after Shaun White won his third Olympic gold medal. During the Olympics, sexual harassment allegations against White have come back into the public eye with new weight in the #MeToo era. White settled a lawsuit in May 2017 that his former bandmate Lena Zawaideh filed against him in 2016, alleging that he sent her pictures of penises and forced her to watch disturbing graphic sexual videos, among other things.

Seven hours later, she was no longer hired. Norton’s old tweets revealed consistent use of slurs and a friendship with a notorious neo-Nazi.

Lena Dunham reveals she had a hysterectomy
So THAT’S how Trump is ‘creating jobs’ Chelsea Handler said Tuesday on her Instagram story that she was traveling to a “weed farm” because she has plans to start her own marijuana line. “I want people to understand that you don’t have to get blottoed. You can just get a little, nice buzz to take the edge off,” she said, adding that marijuana is the “only f---ing thing that’s kept me sane since Trump was elected.” (EXPRESS)
Lena Dunham revealed in a personal essay published in Vogue’s March 2018 issue that she underwent a total hysterectomy, a surgical procedure to remove the entire uterus. For many years, the 31-year-old has battled endometriosis, a disorder that causes tissue ordinarily growing inside the uterus to grow outside of the organ. Dunham wrote that she decided to have the procedure after eight other surgeries failed to alleviate her pain. She mourns her inability to carry a child, but remains hopeful, writing, “I may have felt choiceless before, but I know I have choices now. … Adoption is a thrilling truth I’ll pursue with all my might.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife, Nicole, announced Tuesday the arrival of their second child, Beckett Richard Phelps, who joins their 1-year-old son Boomer. “We had a healthy baby boy and a healthy mama,” Phelps wrote on Instagram. “I truly do feel like the happiest man in the world.” (TWP)
For his new GQ cover story, actor Timothee Chalamet took writer Daniel Riley to his 91-year-old grandmother’s abode in New York City. “One of these people asked you how come you took such a part in this movie, if it was a risk,” she told Chalamet. “And you said: ‘I’m a serious actor, and I like parts that challenge me, and nobody knows me, nobody knows my name, I have nothing to lose.’ I was hysterical! Oh, I love this boy!” (EXPRESS)
