Maria Montenez-Colon, 58, did not get lucky after she called 911 twice last week to solicit sex from an officer. The allegedly drunk woman called 911 on Friday, but when an officer arrived at her Punta Gorda, Fla., home, he said she came on to him, WBBH-TV reported. The officer declined. The woman called back less than an hour later and was arrested for misusing 911. (EXPRESS)

588 Soldiers Removed From Jobs Army finds troops unsuitable for their ‘positions of trust’ Washington The Army removed 588 soldiers from sensitive jobs such as sexualassault counselors and recruiters after ﬁnding they had committed infractions such as sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving, ofﬁcials said Wednesday. The move resulted from orders
“We will continue working to better ensure we select the very best people for these posts.” — COL . DAV ID PAT TERSON, AN ARMY SPOKESMAN, IN A STATEMENT
by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel last year that all the services review the qualiﬁcations of people holding those jobs as part of an effort to stem a rising number of sexual assaults in the military. The Army said it reviewed the qualiﬁcations and records of 20,000
soldiers and found 588 unsuitable for their jobs as recruiters, drill sergeants, training-school instructors and staff of sexual-assault prevention and response programs. It was unclear whether they were reassigned or kicked out of the service. The Navy looked at some 11,000
employees and found ﬁve unqualiﬁed. USA Today, which ﬁrst reported the results of the reviews, said the Air Force and Marines found no one to disqualify. It was unclear why the other service branches reported so few problems, but Pentagon ofﬁcials said the Army did a more stringent review. It scrutinized not only its recruiting and sex-assault response and prevention staffs, but also people in other jobs it calls “positions of trust,” such as the drill sergeants and other instructors.

NASA Finds 715 More Planets in Our Galaxy To the list of planets orbiting distant stars, add another 715. That’s the number of planets, strewn among 305 planetary systems, popping out of the observational data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope. “We’ve almost doubled today the number of planets known to humanity,” said Jack Lissauer, a NASA planetary scientist, announcing the discovery Wednesday. These new planets are all in multi-planet systems and are rela-
tively modest in size — most smaller than Neptune. Four are about twice the size of Earth and are in orbits that put them in what is considered the habitable zone of their stars, at a distance that could allow water to be in a liquid state at the surface. There are surely more habitablezone planets out there. Small planets in very tight orbits are the ones most likely to be detected by Kepler. The new studies looked at only the ﬁrst two years of Kepler’s data collection. To ﬁnd a planet, Kepler needs to make several observations

DNA Tests May Help Prenatal Care A DNA test of a pregnant woman’s blood is more accurate than current methods of screening for Down syndrome and other common disorders, new research published Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine ﬁnds. Current screening methods are imprecise. Ultrasounds and various blood tests can hint at a problem but don’t directly test for one. The next step is diagnostic testing — amniocentesis, like a needle biopsy to collect fetal cells, or chorionic villus sampling, which takes a snip of the placenta. Both bring a small risk of miscarriage. (AP)
Older Dads Linked To Kid Psych Woes
Number of Obese Toddlers Drops
The news: Older fathers may face higher risks than previously thought for having children with psychiatric problems, including bipolar disorder, autism and attention deficits. The study: American and Swedish researchers examined data on 2.6 million Swedes born between 1973 and 2001. Published: In JAMA Psychiatry The discovery: Compared with kids of younger dads, those fathered by men at age 45 and older faced risks almost 25 times greater for bipolar disorder; 13 times greater for ADHD; and more than three times greater for autism. The takeaway: “There’s no reason to ring the alarm bells that older men shouldn’t have kids” unless the results are replicated in research and more evidence is found, molecular geneticist Simon Gregory said. (AP)
The news: Toddler obesity shrank sharply in the past decade, but it’s not proof that the nation has turned a corner in the battle against childhood obesity, some experts say. The study: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2011-2012 of about 9,100 people, including nearly 600 infants and toddlers Published: In the Journal of the American Medical Association The discovery: Researchers found that obesity among children ages 2 to 5 decreased — to 8 percent, from 14 percent a decade ago. That would represent a 43 percent drop. The takeaway: Some experts note that the improvement wasn’t a steady decline and it’s hard to know whether the weight figures are permanently curving down or just jumping around. (AP)

He’s Not Sorry for Eating Your Shoe Behaviorists say that dogs don’t feel shame, despite how they look
Scientific findings have not put a dent in the popularity of such online dog shaming sites as dogshaming.com and shameyourpet.com or videos like those posted on youtube .com/crackrockcandy. In the photos and videos, dogs wear humorous written “confessions” and often are surrounded by the remnants of their misdeeds. At left, Maymo, a lemon beagle, poses for a shame illustration in Merrimack Valley, Mass. In late 2011, Jeremy Lakaszcyck of Boston started putting shaming videos of Maymo on YouTube. (AP)
The next time you start shouting “Shame on you!” because your dog chewed up your favorite slippers, just remember that no matter how guilty your dog looks, it doesn’t know what your rant is about. Behaviorists insist that dogs lack shame. The guilty look — ears back, eyes droopy — is a reaction to the tantrum you are throwing now over the damage they did earlier. One of the ﬁrst scientiﬁc stud-
JEREMY LAKASZCYCK (AP)
ies on the “guilty dog look” was conducted in 2009 by Alexandra Horowitz, an associate professor of psychology. She studied 14 dogs on how they reacted to an owner telling them not to eat a treat. When the
owners returned to the room, sometimes they knew what the dogs had done and sometimes they didn’t, and sometimes the dogs had eaten the treats and sometimes they hadn’t. “I found that the ‘look’ appeared
most often when owners scolded their dogs, regardless of whether the dog had disobeyed … It wasn’t ‘guilt’ but a reaction to the owner that prompted the look,” she said. SUE MANNING (AP)

Nearly all 1,427 coins, dating from 1847 to 1894, are in uncirculated, mint condition, an authenticator said. Although the face value adds up to about $28,000, some are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly $1 million each. (AP)

what’snew@metro A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles
Ever wish that you could use your SmartBeneﬁts® to buy bus and rail passes? We heard that request from our customers and now, you can. And if you commute to work twice a day, ﬁve days a week and then use Metro on the weekends too, transit passes can save you money. For the ﬁrst time, workers in the Capital Region who receive SmartBeneﬁts® from their employers may use the commuter beneﬁt to purchase bus and rail passes. After a successful pilot program, Metro has made this option available to all employers. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this new program, check with your beneﬁts manager at work. It’s up to your employer to opt in and assign all or a portion of your funds as a “Transit Pass Beneﬁt” type in their monthly SmartBeneﬁts® order. Metrorail’s “unlimited” 28-day pass for $230 and the regional 7-day bus pass available for $16 are two of the passes that commuters may be interested in purchasing. There are a dozen transit pass options available for SmartBeneﬁts® recipients. You can learn more about them at wmata.com/smartbeneﬁts. Make it easy to keep your SmarTrip® card loaded with transit passes by subscribing to Auto Reload. Using this program, you can automatically deduct the cost of your transit pass from your SmartBeneﬁts® balance or credit card. The Auto Reload program will stock a new pass onto your card as soon as the last one expires. Find out more at wmata.com/ autoreload. Here at Metro, we want to make it easier for riders to keep their cards loaded with value and avoid unnecessary delays at the faregates and kiosk machines. These online services and improvements to the commuter beneﬁt are a direct result of feedback from our riders. I hope we’ll continue hearing from you as we work to make the Metro system more responsive to the needs of our riders.
Spring break for Metro riders Despite the latest blast of Arctic air, the D.C. region is planning for the arrival of spring and the beautiful cherry blossoms! The 2014 National Cherry Blossom Festival runs from Thursday, March 20 through Sunday, April 13. Just like Metro has done in years past, the rail system will take a break from its aggressive schedule of track work and rebuilding to accommodate customers traveling during Cherry Blossom season. That’s right, there will be no weekend track work during Cherry Blossom season! This year’s break for blossoms will take place over four consecutive weekends, beginning Saturday, March 22 and continuing through Sunday, April 13. As tourists ﬂock to the area for the Cherry Blossom festival, regular Metro riders should expect more crowded conditions and may want to build extra time into their daily commutes. Visitors can plan ahead by purchasing a SmarTrip® card or a One-Day Pass before entering the Metrorail system. Find out more by visiting wmata.com.

Silver Line Delay May Be Costly Contractor could owe millions if it misses early April deadline Tysons Corner, Va. The contractor building the Silver Line faces millions of dollars in fines if it fails to complete the project by an April deadline. Dulles Transit Partners, the contractor building the ﬁrst phase of the $5.6 billion rail line, had announced Feb. 7 that it believed its work was ﬁnished, raising hopes the project could be turned over to Metro this month and that passenger service could start in the spring.
But after a 15-day review, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said Monday that the contractor had failed to meet seven of 12 criteria set out in its contract. Issues ranged from missing safety certiﬁcates to problems with the automatic train control system — a key safety component that controls train movement and speed and an issue that has dogged the project for months. According to provisions in the contract between DTP and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, DTP has until April 9 to complete work on the ﬁrst phase of the project. If the company fails to ﬁnish the work, it will have to pay
Next Steps Once MWAA certifies that DTP has completed its work, it will work with Metro to determine when officials there will take control of the Silver Line. While MWAA is responsible for managing construction of the rail line, Metro will operate it. Metro has 90 days to complete its testing once it takes control of the line. (T WP)
$25,000 per day until the work is completed. The ﬁne increases signiﬁcantly if the delays continue. If DTP is more than 92 days late, it would owe MWAA nearly $2.8 million. In addition, it would
have to pay a daily ﬁne of $75,000 per day. Ultimately, if the project is delayed more than six months from that April date, DTP could be required to pay more than $9 million. Under the terms of the contract, the payments are capped at $60 million. Metro ofﬁcials, who are responsible for determining when Silver Line service will begin, have been tight-lipped about a start date and would not comment on how this latest delay might impact their plans. However, given this latest report, it’s possible that the start of passenger service could be pushed into t he summer. LORI AR ATANI (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Md. Makes Moves on Marijuana Measures Annapolis A day after more than 100 people packed a Maryland State House committee room to share their views on legalizing marijuana, advocates for easing prohibitions on the drug said they feel momentum building in their favor. “The ﬂoodgates for change are
open now,” said Sen. Jamie Raskin, who has sponsored a bill that would legalize marijuana. But Raskin, a Democrat, also cautioned that while the legislature might agree to reduce the criminal penalties, the path to legalization has a ways to go. Lawmakers have sponsored bills in the Maryland General Assembly that would rewrite nearly a century of laws and policies outlawing marijuana. Some want to address problems in the medical marijuana bill that was passed last year. Some seek to decriminalize mari-
The proportion of likely voters who
said they would vote for Mayor Vincent Gray in the mayoral primary in a poll released Tuesday by WRC-TV, WAMU-FM, The Washington Informer and Marist College. He’s followed by Council members Muriel Bowser with 20 percent, Jack Evans with 13 percent and Tommy Wells with 12 percent. Others lag far behind: Andy Shallal has 6 percent, Vincent Orange has 4 percent, and Reta Jo Lewis has 3 percent. (T WP)
that died in the House Judiciary Committee, which also became a burial ground for a House bill like Raskin’s. But marijuana advocates hope this year will be different, especially because Speaker Michael Busch, a fellow democrat, has set up a working group to ﬁnd a way forward on marijuana legislation. Busch has said, however, that Maryland would be wise to see how legalization works in Colorado and Washington state before following their lead.
Police Chief Fooled by Pot Satire Some of the strongest pushback at Tuesday’s hearing came from law enforcement officers. Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop went awry, however, in citing a report of 37 marijuana overdoses in Colorado after that state legalized the drug. After a quick Google search, a legislator told Pristoop that the story had been made up for laughs by The Daily Currant, an online comedy magazine. Pristoop later apologized. But he wasn’t the only high-ranking official to be fooled by that particular piece of satire; Sweden’s justice minister faced ridicule last month for posting the same story to Facebook. (T WP)

Gray said Wednesday that the department is moving in the right direction under Chief Kenneth Ellerbe and Deputy Mayor Paul Quander. D.C. Council member Tommy Wells, a mayoral candidate, called on Ellerbe and Quander to step down for what he says is an inadequate response to the death of a man who collapsed near a ﬁre station. On Wednesday, Gray praised Quander’s report on that incident, which called for the firefighters and four call center employees to be disciplined. And he says Ellerbe is reforming the department.

Alive and Stickin’ This sly form of urban street art is on the rise and under the radar Washington On a recent Saturday afternoon near the U Street Metro station, a 30-something guy in an olivegreen jacket walked past a police officer, slapped a homemade sticker on the back of a street sign and strode away, unnoticed. Over the past five years, this street artist has blanketed greater D.C. with his trademark sticker, a sketch of his left hand bearing the enigmatic phrase “I Will Not,” which has become his pseudonym. “I want to put my hand on everything, pardon the pun,” iwillnot says. A married father of two who asked to keep his identity a secret, iwillnot is among a legion of sticker artists who are decorating — or
vandalizing, depending on your perspective — electric boxes, newspaper boxes and other ﬂat, metal surfaces around the region with miniature works of art. Some of these stickers are hand-painted, while others are block or screen printed or made on a home printer. They can be as sleek as commercial logos, but what distinguishes sticker artists from common advertisers is that artists leave their images up for interpretation, iwillnot says. That’s certainly been the case with his hand. “ S o m e p e o p l e t h i n k I ’m swearing allegiance to something, some people think it’s about detaching yourself from the current sense of urgency or whatever other trendy nonsense has infected the
JASON HORNICK PHOTOS (FOR EXPRESS)
Put a ’Bot On It Look closely and you’ll likely spot a “Robot Griffin III” sticker somewhere in D.C. It’s a creation of artist BZA, who calls his works “Memebots” — “visual shells that can encapsulate any personality.” His illustrations start with a basic robot design that he alters to depict a character or celebrity. “I try to keep them really happy, fun, positive,” he says. Other D.C.-ish Memebots: “Bobby Lee Bot,” inspired by Bobby Lee of the Arlingtonbased reggae band SOJA, and “Robama.” MARISSA PAYNE (E XPRESS)
ABOUT THE PHOTOS Sticker artists love to hit Express boxes. “They are brightly colored and tend to be in high traffic areas,” local artist iwillnot says. We at Express would prefer that our street boxes stay pristine, but we did ask iwillnot to go to town on one out-ofservice box to illustrate this story.

culture,” he says. Sticker art is increasingly ubiquitous in the D.C. area, in part because of the rapid rise of surveillance cameras in the city, says street-art expert Alex Goldstein, owner of The Fridge DC art gallery in Capitol Hill. These cameras can easily capture spray-painters, who might spend hours on an installation. Sticker artists, on the other hand, can slap up their works in seconds. “They’re a lot less likely to get caught,” Goldstein says. As a result, stickers are popping up in suburban parking lots and train tunnels as well as the city’s center. But somehow, they’ve largely escaped ofﬁcial notice. “I just have never seen them,” says Cassandra Ball, the director of D.C.’s grafﬁti abatement program. “I can’t remember ever sending a crew out to take stickers off.” D.C. Public Works spokeswoman Nancee Lyons agrees. “I’ve seen band ﬂiers and posters, but little stickers? I haven’t seen that.” Lyons’ off ice, at 14th and U streets NW, happens to sit at the epicenter of D.C.’s sticker-art explosion. Stickers have been stuck on the bus stop, electrical box and roadwork sign directly in front of the Department of Public Works headquarters. Across the street, a blue sign pointing pedestrians to Meridian Hill Park is plastered with more than 40 stickers, including one depicting a coffee mug that looks like a duck. Like spray-paint grafﬁti, sticker grafﬁti is destruction of property, punishable with fines of up to $1,000, community service or jail time. But the people behind it see themselves as artists, not vandals. “Stickers have so much value, even though they’re cheap and small,” explains a local artist who goes by “Moral,” who plasters the city with stickers featuring intricately drawn monster faces.
“I’d much rather see a bunch of stickers that someone put a little thought or creativity into than just the plain, boring, gray base of a streetlight.” — IW ILLNOT, D.C.-AREA STICKER ARTIST

Small, cheap and abundant, sticker art may be particularly resistant to the commercial forces that threaten to appropriate other facets of street art. “We don’t get a lot of cred, since what we do is so low-risk,” iwillnot says. “But we are as street as it gets.” SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)

For his part, iwillnot sees stickering as sort of a neighborhood beautiﬁcation project. “I’d much rather see a bunch of stickers that someone put a little thought or creativity into than just the plain, boring, gray base of a streetlight,” he says. “D.C. is already such a gray city. I’m in a battle against the gray.” As other forms of street art are ﬁnding their way into galleries, sticker art has largely stayed on the street. “The problem is, you can’t make any money off of it,” iwillnot says. It took him years to persuade The Fridge’s Goldstein to put on a sticker-art show. That show ﬁnally happened last fall, after iwillnot posted notices on online street-art forums, asking artists around the world to mail their work to him. More than 10,000 stickers ﬂooded his P.O. box, and iwillnot spent some 60 hours afﬁxing them to wooden panels for

No Easy Road to Playoffs MIKE GEORGE (AP)
Remaining schedule of the Caps is one of toughest in the NHL Capitals
Aaron Hernandez is being held without bail in a Massachusetts jail.
When the Capitals resume their season tonight against the Panthers, they will have just 23 games left to secure their place in the postseason. One of five Eastern Conference teams within three points of the second wild-card spot as of Wednesday, the Capitals will have little to no margin for error as they attempt to prolong their season.
Sheriff: Hernandez In Scuffle NFL
“I think everybody [is] going to have to step up their level of hockey,” forward Alex Ovechkin said. “You can’t lose five games or you’re going to be done right away. I’m pretty sure this organization is not ready for that and we’re going to ﬁght and we’re going to do our best.” The NHL’s recent Olympic hiatus provided most of the team with a two-week respite to recharge for what is arguably the most grueling stretch run in the league. Of Washington’s 23 remaining games, all but two are against teams either currently occupying a playoff spot or within four points of a potential berth. Thirteen are on the road and 11 are against teams that reconvened this week ranked among the NHL’s top 10. The Capitals face a daunting task if they have any hope of making their seventh straight playoff appearance. “It’s for real,” forward Martin

Capitals star forward Alex Ovechkin leads the NHL with 40 goals — nine more than any other player entering Wednesday night.
Erat said. “If we want to do some damage in the playoffs, we have to ﬁrst get there.” In six of seven full NHL seasons since 2005, Eastern teams have needed at least 92 points to qualify for the playoffs. For the Capitals (27-23-9, 63 points) to reach that threshold, they will have to earn 29 points, about 63 percent of the points available to them. That will require a signiﬁcant uptick in their overall play; to date, the Capitals have earned 53.4 percent of available points. A source of motivation can be found in how Washington has
Meanwhile … Martin Erat, who just returned to Washington after representing the Czech Republic in the Winter Olympics, said Wednesday he still wants the Capitals to trade him but declined to elaborate further. General manager George McPhee recently said he planned to touch base with Erat but didn’t expect the veteran to withdraw his request. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
finished recent seasons. In four of the past six years, the Capitals have won at least 13 of their ﬁnal 20 games. Facing the harsh reality of missing the postseason for the ﬁrst time since 2007, the Capitals can only hope that they have once again saved their best for last. “Our team has the skill and we have the will to get ourselves there,” forward Eric Fehr said. “We’ve had our backs against the wall a number of times and we’ve always fought out of it, so we expect that to happen again this year.”
Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was involved in a scufﬂe with another jail inmate, but neither man required medical attention, a Massachusetts sheriff said Wednesday. The brief ﬁght took place around noon Tuesday in a common area of the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, where only one inmate is supposed to be out of his cell at a time, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said. It’s unclear which inmate was the aggressor. Hodgson said jail staff are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video to figure out exactly what happened and determine whether disciplinary measures or even criminal charges are warranted. Hernandez, a former New England Patriots tight end, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. (AP)

As the frontman for Pavement, one of the ’90s’ most cherished and influential indie-rock bands, Stephen Malkmus threw together brainy phraseology and detached irony as if each verse were its own Jackson Pollock painting. With gnarled guitar riffs and ramshackle musicianship, he helped birth a unique brand of artsy slacker-rock. When Pavement went on hiatus in 1999, Malkmus formed the Jicks, a new vessel for his freewheeling wordplay and structurally restless pop songs. Malkmus, 47, has now made six records with the Jicks — more than he did with Pavement (which reunited briefly in 2010). Malkmus and the Jicks headline the Black Cat on Friday in support of their latest album, January’s “Wig Out at Jagbags.” Your music explores the space between hyper-literate and slacker, even stoner, mentalities.
I wouldn’t mind being a mix between Stephen Hawking and Jeff Spicoli. That’s a nice middle ground. I think it’s a good place to be in music. Music that’s purely intellectual … sort of belongs in an art world — things get uptight. This is rock ’n’ roll, right? It’s about grooves and good times. Lyrically and musically, your songs come off as both carefree and impassioned.
I hear that. It’s improvisational. There’s kind of a jazz element to the lyrics. They’re sort of made up in relation to the music. One of my favorite lyrics on the
new album is “Condoleezza’s Rice scattered on the ﬂoor,” from “Scattegories.” What goes on in your head when you write something like that?
You can really say that with feeling for some reason, just phonetically. It really works. You know Uncle Ben’s rice? It was a little bit not politically correct. But I just imagined that she could start a company, Condoleezza’s Rice, if she ever decided to go Oprah in the food world. That was the image in my head. You often reference your interests, whether highbrow or lowbrow.
Sometimes it’s seemingly avantgarde, but some parts are very FM radio and ’70s. I like all those things. It just reflects my personality.
“Music that’s purely intellectual … [tends to] get uptight. This is rock ’n’ roll, right? It’s about grooves and good times.” Are you being intentionally nostalgic?
I think some songs are kind of wistful and looking backwards. At this point in my life, I’m looking backwards more than forward. I kind of write what I know. That
What does Pavement mean to you now? LEAH NASH
As time goes, now it feels like those songs are kind of old and classic in a certain way. We play them in the encore. We kind of ridiculously mix them into other really famous songs — like they belong there. We’ll do a Steve Miller song into a Pavement song and then into a Black Sabbath song, as if it just naturally belongs with those other songs. I’m proud of what Pavement accomplished. That people still talk about it is awesome. Do your kids listen to Pavement?
A little bit. They like that song “Unfair” t hat ’s on “Crooked Rain.” That’s their favorite. They like “Tigers” [from the 2011 Jicks album “Mirror Traffic”]. They like the catchy ones, I guess — the more upbeat ones. What do you listen to these days?
I listen to what [my kids] listen to and I like it. I never thought I would like “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry or “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore [& Ryan Lewis]. I like “Holy Grail” [by Jay Z featuring Justin Timberlake]. I learned more about that kind of music than I ever thought I would. I can say I like it. DREW LITOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

It sounds like a drama, but Dove insists the show’s humor is more powerful than its despair. “This is a horrible tag line, but this is the funniest play about a school shooting you will ever see,” Dove says. “And I don’t mean that to be irreverent, because it’s an extremely reverent play. But it does have a way of opening up the debate in a way that I don’t think the news can.” As Elizabeth tries to bridge a growing distance between her and Bailey — a rift magnified by the death of her husband (Bailey’s father) — she grasps desperately

20TH CENTURY FOX
The family dog (played by a human actress) has three heads, the radio speaks directly to its listeners and there’s something ominous trying to get out of the refrigerator, which shakes as if possessed. The characters don’t seem to notice the paranormal forces at play — or maybe they just don’t want to see things as they truly are. Playwright Steve Yockey is known for examining fraught social issues through a supernatural lens. He depicted AIDS as a threatening, tentacled sea monster in “Octopus” and set grieving parents in a world of giant talking birds and imaginary tea shops in “Afterlife: A Ghost Story.” In each of his plays, fantasy elements offer jumping-off points for everyday subject matter. “Sometimes [‘Pluto’] is scifi, at some points it’s horror, but, like both of those genres, it works best because [the subject matter is] something that we actually deal with,” Dove says. “The thing that theater can do best is take those topics and throw a whole new way of looking at it.” Dove chose “Pluto” for the Forum Theatre in December 2012. A week later, Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 students and six staff members at an elementary school in Sandy Hook, Conn. With the media embroiled in a gun control debate and the public in shock, Dove and the production team thought twice about their selection. “But what we came out with was, ‘That’s all the more reason to do it,’ ” Dove says. “I like choosing plays that scare me a little.”
Jesus Is Magic
In “Son of God,” out Friday, Diogo Morgado plays Jesus of Nazareth, a homeless rabbi who spent a chunk of his childhood as a refugee. Jesus can be quite the box-office draw. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ Willem Dafoe played the Wonderful Counselor in this 1988 Martin Scorsese film, a movie that managed to tick a lot of people off because it suggested that maybe Jesus would have preferred to not have to die a painful, gruesome, horrible death.
2 ‘Hamlet 2’ In this 2008 play-within-a-movie, Steve Coogan plays the Prince of Peace in a musical sequel to “Hamlet,” complete with the song “Rock Me Sexy Jesus.” No, it doesn’t make much sense in the movie, either.
3 ‘King of Kings’ Jeffrey Hunter — hardcore “Star Trek” fans, turn to your neighbor and explain who he is — plays the titular role in this 1961 epic. Orson Welles provides narration, which is about as close to the voice of God as one can get.
4 ‘Ben-Hur’ This 1959 classic put the Everlasting Father at the periphery of the story (the actor playing him didn’t even get a credit). But it won 11 Oscars, so Someone was clearly pleased.
5 ‘Godspell’ In this 1973 musical based on the hit Broadway show, Victor Garber plays the Savior who loves two things: a good soft-shoe number, and everyone.

First lady’s gown by Naeem Khan This dress, made by Indian-American designer Naeem Khan, was worn by Michelle Obama to the White House Governors Dinner in 2012. Khan comes from a long line of Indian textile embroiderers, says “Beyond Bollywood” curator Masum Momaya. “His ancestors embroidered in the Mughal Courts of India, and traditional techniques of embroidery have been passed down to him through the generations,” she says. Khan, who counts Beyonce and Eva Longoria among his clients, trained under American fashion designer Halston. “A lot of my work is inspired from the crosscurrents of culture between India and America,” Khan says. “I love the whole idea that you can mix the two worlds and create something new.”
1 Khan used semi-transparent tulle to show off the first lady’s great arms. “The one-shoulder gown on her looks so beautiful, and the Governors Dinner is well suited for that kind of glamour,” he says.
2 “The shape of the dress is so modern,” Khan says. “It’s a simple silhouette that’s tight on the waist — classic Hollywood meets Washington meets India.” 3 The gown was embroidered using a traditional Indian technique called zardosi, Momaya says. “It’s usually done with real gold or silver thread, which is very expensive. It’s intricate work that’s laborintensive and time-consuming.” The floral motif, Khan says, was commonly worn by Indian royalty. S.D.

This was the first in a series of hate crimes against South Asians, Momaya says. “He was attacked because he wore a turban and wore a beard, and people equated turbans and beards with Osama bin Laden.”

This football helmet was once worn by Indian-American linebacker Brandon Chillar. “I think many people will be surprised to know there has been a Indian-American football player in the NFL and that he was part of the Super Bowl-winning Green Bay Packers team,” Momaya says. “I hope that children who come to the exhibit and see this will be inspired to know that not all Indian-Americans are doctors or engineers or taxi drivers.”
This 1907 photo of a beet farmer in Hamilton City, Calif., illustrates Indian-Americans’ deep roots in this country. “Many Indian immigrants came to America in the ’60s and ’70s, but they started coming here in the 1800s and early 1900s as well,” Momaya says. Early waves of immigrants often settled in California, Oregon and Washington and worked on farms, she says. “There are some Indian families on the West Coast today that are fifth- and sixth-generation farmers.” S.D.

The Final Measure In ‘CSI: Mozart,’ BSO puts the composer’s puzzling death to rest
The 1984 movie “Amadeus” points a finger at rival composer Antonio Salieri, but there are plenty of other theories as to what caused Mozart’s sudden illness and death. A few favorites include:
Franz Hofdemel Mozart’s friend and Masonic brother, Hofdemel may have poisoned the composer for having an affair with his wife. The evidence? A day after Mozart’s funeral, Hofdemel attempted to kill his five-monthspregnant wife and succeeded in killing himself. Hofdemel’s wife later named the baby after Mozart and her late husband.

conducted the premieres six weeks apart in two different countries.” Just as Mozart was composing some of his greatest works, including “The Magic Flute” and his unfinished “Requiem,” he fell ill. At first, he complained of a high fever and headache, but that soon progressed to swelling and pain in his hands and legs. By the time Mozart died, his body has ballooned into comic proportions and stunk badly. Mozart’s doctor pronounced the cause of death “acute miliary fever” and called it a day. That doctor’s cursory diagnosis, made without an autopsy, launched a cottage industry that’s produced more than 100 theories as to what killed Mozart. Could he have been poisoned by rival composer Anto-
nio Salieri? Was it a cuckolded friend who did the deed? Alsop will interrogate the witnesses and sort through the competing theories — a job she’s well suited for, Balle says. “I don’t want to say that Marin is a ham,” Balle says, “but it’s a requirement today for conductors to have the ability to talk to the audience, to tell a good story, and to share their insights into the music, and Marin is great at all of these things. This is a natural extension of what she already does.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Vampiric habits Mozart’s tendency to sleep all day and work through the night could have resulted in a vitamin D deficiency, which kept his body from fighting off infection, according to a theory proposed in 2011.
Doctors Whatever his initial illness, the 2 liters of blood that doctors drained daily from the diminutive composer might have been what finally did him in, according to a 2010 paper. Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., Baltimore; Sat., 7 p.m., $44-$73; 410-783-8000, bsomusic.org.

Whether it’s “The Magic Flute” soundtracking a medical mystery on “House, M.D.” or “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” lightening the mood of a forensic investigation on “Body of Proof,” Mozart’s works have permeated pop culture. So perhaps it’s fitting that playwright Didi Balle has employed the police procedural format to help audiences hear Mozart with fresh ears — and figure out how he died. For “CSI: Mozart,” at Strathmore and t he Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall this weekend, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a medical doctor Mozart and six actors will share a stage and provide different perspectives on Mozart’s life and his mysterious death at age 35. “It’s a whole new genre, really,” Balle says. Baltimore Symphony Orchestra conductor Marin Alsop will lead the staged investigation with the help of orthopedic surgeon William J. Dawson, author of several papers on Mozart’s death. In between musical excerpts and Dawson’s medical explanations, actors will re-enact episodes from the Austrian composer’s tumultuous life. “Toward the end of his life, he had fallen from favor with the Viennese, who were a bit fickle,” Balle says. “There was a recession in Vienna, they were at war, and his concerts weren’t selling the way they used to.” Things began to turn around for Mozart in 1791, when he won a flurry of commissions for new work. “That year, he wrote two fulllength operas,” Balle says, “and he

Though most of the album was written during three months of grueling rehearsals in Perro’s Brooklyn bedroom, “Different Days” was the lone track The Men recorded that was already a live staple. “It was actually recorded almost as an afterthought because that was just a song that was already in our set,” Perro says. “We finished [recording] early [and said] let’s do ‘Different Days,’ which is funny because it ended up being a big part of the album.”

‘Pearly Gates’ Mark Perro, center, says The Men spent just two days in the studio in 2012 recording “Tomorrow’s Hits.”
THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER
By Popular Demand Rockers The Men hit the road armed with ‘Tomorrow’s Hits’ Music For the first time in five years, The Men aren’t looking for tomorrow’s hits. Well, that’s not entirely true: The New York rock band is very much focused on “Tomorrow’s Hits,” its cheekily titled f ifth album. But when that record drops on Tuesday, it will be the first time since their 2010 debut, “Immaculada,” that The Men won’t have another album in the can. “ ‘Leave Home,’ when that came out [in 2011], we had already finished ‘Open Your Heart,’ ” singer and guitarist Mark Perro says. “By the time ‘Open Your Heart’
came out [in 2012], we had just finished ‘New Moon’ and we recorded ‘Tomorrow’s Hits’ in December 2012, before ‘New Moon’ even came out [in 2013]. We were always playing catch-up. The stuff we were really excited for, by the time it came out, we were moved on to something else. … We just got completely burnt out.” The Men took a slight break last fall, but are already back on the road. Ahead of Monday’s gig at the Rock and Roll Hotel, Perro walked Express through the new album, track by track.
‘Get What You Give’
With the help of a horn section, The Men channel their inner E Street Band on “Another Night,” easily the group’s most accessible song (and one befitting the album’s title). Perro says the band had been wanting to record with horns and the timing just finally worked out. “If there’s ever a time to try it, this song felt like a song that’s screaming for it — and we just went with it,” he says.
With the opening, hard-edged guitar riff and a harmonica solo, “Dark Waltz” sounds like a continuation of last year’s “New Moon” and a thesis for the new album. “To me, that song really represents where we were at as a band, at that moment,” Perro says. “We really locked in together when we were recording that song.”
The most straight-forward rock song on the album, “Get What You Give” boils The Men down to their basics: “I always described us as just a band,” Perro says. “When you start saying you’re this type of band, then people start getting all upset when you put out a record that doesn’t sound like your last record. So I’ve always thought of us in a much more general sense. It’s a band of dudes playing music — nothing too crazy about it.”
“Tomorrow’s Hits” was recorded livein-studio in just two days, and the recordings are mostly single takes. The Men ran through this punky blues song just three times before picking the final version. “ ‘Pearly Gates’ is one of those songs that kinda needs that spontaneity,” Perro says. “You take that energy out of it and it’s just a blues song.”
‘Settle Me Down’ With a hypnotic country-rock vibe, this is the closest The Men come to balladry on “Tomorrow’s Hits.” “I was really into the groove of that song,” Perro says. “I think that’s the best part about it. We tried to have something chill, as cliche as that is, but that still moves, and being in a trance is an awesome reaction to it.”
LINER NO T E S
‘Going Down’ “Going Down” brings the album to a close by going back to what The Men do best: rock out. “I think we wanted to end on a jammer,” Perro says. “At the end it kind of fades out, the boys are soloing — I think that’s a good example of the kind of band we are.” RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

entertainment | Weekend Pass WHO THE HECK IS ...
Kieran Hebden — who goes by the name Four Tet — combines elements of free-jazz, dub, folk, EDM and house into warm, oddly emotional electronic music. The enigmatic British producer rarely participates in interviews, mostly letting his glitchy, fractured soundscapes speak for themselves. On Friday, Hebden returns to U Street Music Hall for the second time in less than two years.
Refrigerate After Opening
Hebden began his career as a guitarist for post-rock band Fridge, which he formed as a teenager in 1995 with classmates from the Elliott School in Putney, England (which was renamed ARK Putney Academy in 2012). The school is the same place where members of British indie bands The xx and Hot Chip met and began making music. Fridge released five proper studio albums from 1997 to 2007 and acted as the backing band for singersongwriter Badly Drawn Boy on a 2000 European tour.

Stop, Collaborate, Listen Hebden has worked with (and remixed) many big names, including Radiohead
singer Thom Yorke, producer Madlib, elusive rapper MF Doom, Caribou’s Dan Snaith and English dubstep producer Burial (another Elliott School alumnus). Yorke has repeatedly cited Hebden as an influence, especially on Radiohead’s most recent album, 2011’s “The King of Limbs.”
Don’t Call It Folktronica Critics have labeled Four Tet’s music, which occasionally incorporates instrumental folk samples, as “folktronica” (think: Avicii’s massive hit, “Wake Me Up”), a term Hebden rejects as misleading. Though his watershed album, 2003’s “Rounds,” may make use of short folk passages, the record consists entirely of obscure vinyl samples across many genres,
intended to create tension and space between wide-ranging organic sounds.
A Nostalgic ‘Rewind’ Hebden’s latest album, October’s “Beautiful Rewind,” is a slight departure from Four Tet’s usual aesthetic, nodding nostalgically to ’90s-era British electronic genre jungle. The sound is notable for its hyper-speed rhythmic break beats, reggae and dancehall influences, and minimalist elements. The single “Kool FM” takes its name from a U.K. pirate radio station that popularized the genre.
Marathon Man Hebden’s shows regularly last as long as the average workday. His set at London’s FabricLive in October was billed as eight hours long, and while his U Street Music Hall show has no announced set length, there’s also no telling how late it could run. DREW LITOWITZ (FOR EXPRESS)

Westend Bistro’s Palmetto Moon cocktail includes a 105-proof apple-flavored moonshine.
Southern Efficiency serves a cocktail of smoked cola and white whiskey (another name for moonshine) on tap.
REACH FOR THE MOONSHINE
The potent, once-illicit liquor gets a new role as a smooth cocktail addition
If your knowledge of moonshine is limited to what you’ve seen on the Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” and the parts of “Deliverance” you haven’t erased from your memory, you need an update. “People have the idea that it’s still made in the backwoods,” says Jason Silerto, bartender at Westend Bistro. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Now it’s small batch and high quality.” Though the word “moonshine” — probably inspired by the smugglers who worked by the light of the moon to distribute the firewater — historically refers simply to illegally distilled spirits, the moonshines you can legally buy today are generally unaged white whiskeys produced by fermenting corn. It’s strong stuff, usually clocking in at over 100 proof and acerbic when sipped on its own, though you can detect a touch of sweetness from the corn. The following bartenders are mixing the original mountain dew into cocktails that evoke urban cool rather than backcountry shenanigans.

707 Sixth St. NW; 202-289-3600, graffiatodc.com. (Gallery Place)
“The mark of a really good moonshine is you should be able to drink as much as you want, pass out and wake up in the morning without a hangover,” Silerto says. He features a smootherthan-expected 105-proof apple-flavored moonshine from Palmetto Moonshine in his Palmetto Moon cocktail ($15). The autumn-inspired sipper is bolstered with peach liqueur, Absolut Elyx vodka and house-made apple cider syrup pepped with cinnamon, clove and allspice. No, it’s not served in a Mason jar — it arrives in a martini glass with a few brandied cherries.
Mike Isabella’s beverage director, Taha Ismail, was more than a little skeptical when he started working with moonshine. “Everyone has a bad memory of it, myself included,” he says. “I never thought you could make a good cocktail with it.” Corsair Distillery’s pumpkin spice moonshine made him a convert. He combines the squashy spirit with lemon juice, maple syrup and allspice liqueur, then pours the mix into a goblet. The remaining two-thirds of the glass are topped off with pumpkin beer. Ismail dubbed the concoction the Smashing Pumpkins ($10) after the gloomy alterna-rockers. “I think Billy Corgan would like it,” Ismail says.
2435 18th St. NW; 202-450-3106, dclibertine.com. (Columbia Heights)
Though this Adams Morgan watering hole has earned a reputation as a haven for absinthe aficionados since it opened last summer, its liquor list also features half a dozen moonshines. Two cocktails feature the spirit, including the Moonlit A f fair ($11). Clima x Moonshine (so named for the town in Virginia where it’s produced) is shaken with elderflower liqueur, rhubarb spirits, lemon juice and ice, then strained into a coupe glass. “You have to talk people into trying it, because everyone thinks it’s going to be way too strong,” general manager Morgan Tramontana says. “Most of them end up being pleasantly surprised.”
1841 Seventh St. NW; 202-316-9396, whiskeyhome.com. (Shaw-Howard U)
You won’t see the word “moonshine” on the cocktail menu, but you will find white whiskey. Don’t be fooled — they’re basically the same thing. “Moonshine has t his wonderful allure and backstory,” bar manager JP Fetherston says, “but it doesn’t connote good whiskey.” So he uses Corsair Distillery’s Wry Moon to make the white whiskey and smoked cola cocktail ($7). The clear spirit is combined with house-made cola syrup accented with hickory smoke, clove and allspice. The blend goes into a keg, where it spends three days being carbonated. The finished product is available on draft, simply dressed up with a lemon wheel. NE VIN MARTELL (FOR E XPRESS)

For too long now, the discerning diner has had only a few motives — Cashion’s Eat Place and Mintwood Place, among the handful — for heading to Adams Morgan for dinner. The opening of Roofers Union this month not only adds fresh interest to the neighborhood, it does so at a price point that encourages regular attendance. The participation of Marjorie Me e k-Br ad le y, t he t a lente d chef at Ripple in Cleveland Park, is a major reason to cheer this news. A not her is t he space, formerly home to the bar Meek-Bradley called the Reef: t hree stories devoted to drinking and eating, including a second f loor with sweeping views of the bohemian scene on the ground and a rooftop. It’s that lofty outdoor venue that inspired the youthful restaurant’s name and menu, says the chef, 29, who describes Roofers Union as “an American-style beer garden. German, but not really.” Cue the house-made sausages, including chicken laced with nutmeg and ginger and cradled in a pretzel roll baked on-site. And bring on the snacks, clever and delicious and $9, on average. My posse makes quick work of the tender lamb ribs served with cuminspiced yogurt, chicken wings glossy with honey and Sriracha, and a surprise best-seller: pig ear salad. “The servers enjoy it,” MeekBradley says. “They get people to try” the toss of cured, fried-toorder ears and frisee and watercress. When pierced with a fork, an egg on top becomes the dressing. Given all the familiar food she’s
Bizarre things are happening in the basement of Jack Rose Dining Saloon (2007 18th St. NW; 202588-7388). Every Saturday night, bartenders Nick Lowe and Trevor Frye concoct curious cocktails like the Ode to Omaha, which is served capped in a glass orb with hickory smoke, below, and the Maiden Voyage, which starts as a sazerac but morphs into a vieux carre as the ice melts. It’s all a part of Dram and Grain, the new weekly reservationonly cocktail and small bites experience in the intimate space.

offering, the chef, who is dividing her time between two neighborhoods, figures she’s free to serve a few bold statements at Roofers Union. Sweetbreads (“one of my favorite things”) are presented as though they were po’ boys, for instance. Treated to a buttermilk bath before frying and a lime mayonnaise afterward, the organ meat is heady eating. A category called “Simple” announces large plates. Steak frites, dull despite a knob of herbed butter, compares unfavorably with the pairing offered by, say, Bearnaise on Capitol Hill. Grilled salmon decorated with shaved fennel and juicy chicken cooked under a

brick are more in keeping with the top toque’s style. The young and friendly servers at Roofers Union, which is dressed here and there with old tools and work uniforms, rock. Want to sample a beer or three? Not a problem. And when we run out of chips for the oniony dip, replacements are rushed over. But surely I’m not the only guy tired of having a bunch of small plates show up at the same time for the convenience of the kitchen. Maybe Meek-Bradley can do for the larger community what she has done for Adams Morga n a nd cha nge t hat ga me. TOM SIETSEMA ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

O’s Newbie Schooled by Buck
Nationals right-handed prospect Lucas Giolito is 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds.
Prospect Flashes ‘Electric’ Potential Giolito’s post-surgery pitching impresses Nats hitting coach Nationals Nationals hitting coach Rick Schu likes to tell a story about 19-year-old right-handed fireballer Lucas Giolito. Early last July, before he was promoted to his current job, Schu was a roving hitting coordinator in the organization’s farm system. And one day, he was watching game video of the Nationals’ Gulf Coast League affiliate from July 3, which also happened to be Giolito’s first game back from Tommy John surgery only 11 months earlier. Schu saw Giolito’s fastball — “electric,” he called it — behave almost like a sinker, dropping low in the strike zone, late and hard. In the pitch-tracking device, the pitch was labeled a four-seam fastball, normally a ﬂatter pitch, but Schu was convinced it was a two-seam fastball. Schu even called coaches to double
check. No, it was a four-seamer, he was told, and it actually moves that much. The Nationals’ top prospect, and among the top 100 in baseball according to most lists, was hitting the high 90s on the radar gun. Seven months later, stronger and further removed from surgery, Giolito looks every bit the part of an elite pitching prospect. He looks like a small NBA power forward at 6-foot-6, 255 pounds, sports big hands that help him spin the baseball, is still maturing physically and touched 100 late in the season. “He is a can’t-miss,” Schu said. “Only come around once in a while.” Giolito’s potential major league arrival date, with an accelerated development program, could be in two years. He is likely to begin this minor league season at Class A Hagerstown. His workload will be limited this season, given his history. And perhaps, the following year, at 21, Giolito could be a contender for a September callup if he develops as most expect. JAMES WAGNER ( THE WASHINGTON POST )
The amount of a one-year contract
agreed to by outfielder Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday, a prelude to a long-term deal between the young All-Star and the team. The salary is the highest in a one-year contract for a player not eligible for arbitration who wasn’t coming to the major leagues from Japan or Cuba, topping Ryan Howard’s $900,000 salary with Philadelphia in 2007.

Josh Hart needed a history lesson at spring training. The outfielder, selected 37th overall in last June’s amateur draft, was visiting Baltimore’s major league spring training camp on Monday when manager Buck Showalter introduced him to Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. Showalter asked Hart if he knew who Robinson was. The 19-year-old did not. Showalter has embraced Orioles history in his time as the team’s manager and wanted to teach Hart a lesson. “I said, ‘OK, I want tomorrow by this time I want a page on Frank Robinson,’ ” Showalter explained. “I

said, ‘You go home, you research it and you come back tomorrow and have it on my desk.’ ” A few hours before the Tuesday deadline, Showalter was asked
whether Hart had completed the assignment. He emphasized Hart had to bring the paper to him and couldn’t email it. Hart quickly complied with Showalter’s request. “I wasn’t nervous at all, but I knew he was serious,” Hart told MASNsports.com. Robinson’s number 20 was retired by the Orioles after he led the team to four World Series, and he won the Triple Crown in 1966 when he was voted AL MVP. He became the major leagues’ ﬁrst black manager with Cleveland in 1975 and later returned to Baltimore as a coach, manager and executive. Hart learned that and a lot more about Robinson in his project. (AP)

Sports Tight Races for Conference Titles The Big 12 regular season has ended up as it always seems to: with Kansas on top. With their win over Oklahoma on Monday, the fifth-ranked Jayhawks wrapped up at least a share of their 10th straight Big 12 championship. Most of the conference races haven’t been decided, though. Here are four that figure to be interesting in the final two weeks of the regular season. JOHN MARSHALL (AP)
Doug McDermott, right, and No. 9 Creighton is in control, thanks to a pair of lopsided wins over No. 8 Villanova. There’s still some wiggle room for the Wildcats, though. They entered Wednesday’s game vs. Butler a half-game back of the Bluejays at 12-2 and play two of their final three games at home. Creighton plays two of its final three games on the road, against Xavier and Georgetown.
Syracuse appeared to be headed toward a runaway after winning its first 25 games. Things changed quickly when the Orange lost two games last week. Now, No. 12 Virginia is atop the conference with three games left. The Cavaliers entered Wednesday’s game vs. Miami at 14-1 in the ACC, a game ahead of Syracuse. The Orange have a chance to gain ground Saturday, when they play at Virginia.
No. 11 Cincinnati opened conference play 13-1, but the Bearcats’ 58-57 loss to No. 7 Louisville on Saturday made things a bit more interesting in the American Athletic Conference. Cincinnati, which has three games left, has a half-game lead over Louisville, which still has four left, starting with today’s game against Temple. SMU is two games back at 11-4 and Memphis still has an outside shot at 10-4.
This one could be fun during the closing stretch. Middle Tennessee has won nine straight games and leads at 11-2, but Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech, UTEP and Tulsa are all lurking right behind at 10-3 with three games left. Today’s game between Middle Tennessee and Louisiana Tech could open things up a bit but could also make the race even more convoluted. Stay tuned.

NED DISHMAN (NBAE VIA GETTY IMAGES)
Wizards point guard John Wall, center, is fourth in the NBA in assists this season — averaging 8.6 per game.
Wizards Learn to Share Washington’s second in assist-to-turnover ratio during February Wizards John Wall pushed the ball up the floor and Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo slid over to cut off his path to the basket. Wall whirled the ball behind his back, left to right, to coerce Oladipo and Tobias Harris into leaving their feet as he got to the rim. With the defense committed to him, Wall whipped the ball over to a wide-open Trevor Booker, who buried a jumper to give the Wizards a 17-point lead in the third quarter of their 115-106 win over the Magic on Tuesday. After such a sweet pass, Booker said he knew he couldn’t let down Wall by shooting a brick. Wall concurred.
7 P.M. Today | CSN+
“I know he had to hit that J,” Wall said, loud enough for Booker to hear him on the other side of the locker room. Wall started chuckling and Booker laughed as well. The mood is generally upbeat after wins, but even better when players are more engaged. And in their ﬁrst game since Nene sprained a ligament in his left knee, the Wizards won with a formula that they will have to maintain if they want to have any success in his absence. They had four 20-point scorers for the ﬁrst time in nearly four years and had 24 assists to just 12 turnovers. “We all were feeling it,” Bradley Beal said after scoring 21 points. “We did a great job of just moving
the ball together. We were making shots. We were having fun out there.” Through the month of February, the Wizards have done their best to focus on ball movement and management, resulting in the second winning month of the season — no matter what happens when the team travels to Toronto today. “We’ve really solidified this month,” coach Randy Wittman said. The Wizards (29-28) have won four straight games and have the league’s second-best assist-to-turnover ratio this month – 1.98-to-1 — trailing only the Charlotte Bobcats. “Just shows how we can play when we move the ball and we share and you’ve got different guys you’ve got to worry about,” Wall said. “Just pace and playing as a team. Everybody is getting touches and getting shots.” MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Veteran Addition: Drew Gooden has signed a 10-day contract with the Wizards. The veteran forward joined Washington at Wednesday’s practice and will be available for today’s game against the Toronto Raptors. The Wizards were in need of frontcourt depth after losing forward Nene to a sprained left MCL. Nene is expected to be sidelined about six weeks. Gooden hasn’t played since he was designated as an amnesty player by the Milwaukee Bucks last summer. (AP)

Keeping Portland Weird
Ode to Oy A lady sings. She sings and walks. She walks through a tub of rotting fish guts, a tub of maggots, a tub of biting lizards. Yet she keeps singing. “You give me fever,” she sings. But wait, is she singing … or screaming? When she comes to a tub with an alligator, she halts. Bugs and bites are but a few of the obstacles contestants face as they try to keep By Marc on singing and win up Silver to $10,000 on “Killer Karaoke,” a TruTV series that the New York Times called “the greatest show in television history.” It’s back for a second season (Thursdays, 10 p.m.) with rock and roller Mark McGrath replacing stunt comic Steve-O as host and a tweaked format in which the audience votes for its faves. And really, the show is pretty great. It’s as if “American Idol” and halfpipe skiing had a baby that was raised by the Marquis de Sade: music + insane physical ordeals + sadism! True, “Killer Karaoke” is sophomoric and cruel. But ultimately, it is about the indomitability of the human spirit, which will not let snakes, scorpions or stink beetles keep it from expressing itself in song. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen stay fresh after 4 seasons of making ‘Portlandia’ Television A couple find a free parking spot in downtown Portland. Then they cram a full day’s activities into the 15 minutes it provides. … Portland’s feminist bookstore tries to bail itself out of debt with a politically correct carwash. … And so it goes on “Portlandia,” whose crystalline absurdity and truth is back for its fourth season (Thursdays, 10 p.m., IFC). The Peabody award-winning show, too ﬁnetuned to be dubbed sketch comedy, teems with indie-cinema-ish interludes. Its vignettes feel vividly indigenous to Portland, Ore., yet, at the same time, resonate with universal relevance. It’s the product of a remarkable collaboration: Carrie Brownstein (musician, comedian, actress and, by the way, a Portland resident) in saucy cahoots with Fred Armisen (a “Saturday Night Live” alum and, as his brand-new gig, bandleader for “Late Night With Seth Meyers”). “I love Portland. I love Carrie,” Armisen says, explaining the genesis of “Portlandia.” What began as just-for-us videos by Armisen and Brownstein evolved into a weekly cable-TV venture once “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels got onboard. “It’s more a mind-set than a place,” Brownstein muses. “It’s an exemplary city in how befuddled

High-Profile Fans Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen are supported by a grab bag of celebrities this season, including Kirsten Dunst, k.d. lang, Steve Buscemi, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, director Gus Van Sant and a slew of past and present “SNL” regulars. (AP)
it can sometimes be by its own attempts at progressiveness and kindness. Here, your biggest battle is whether something is local versus organic.”
Portrayed as forward-thinking but self-deluded, Portland lays bare great comic possibilities. Armisen says he works backward from the real-life curiosities he runs across: He questions what, and who, might account for them. “There’s a new artisan sandwich I’m seeing everywhere,” he cites as an example. “How did that happen? You wonder who the person is that buys it, but also who it’s marketed by. And it goes from there. You don’t so much start the comic process with a smile as with a question mark.”
Brownstein weighs in: “Fred is less fascinated by the phenomenon and more fascinated by the motivating factors, the character traits of some of the stranger, obsessive people who are putting out more chaos than solutions.” The mission is examination, not declaring a verdict: “Saying something’s right or wrong isn’t up to you as a comedian,” Armisen says. “Being present and funny, that’s your only job. The only message is, ‘I don’t know! That’s just how people are!’ ” FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)
Back to the Swamp: DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg hinted in an interview with Fox Business Network on Tuesday that there may be a sequel in the works for the “Shrek” franchise. “We’re not finished, and more importantly, neither is he,” Katzenberg said of the ogre hero, left, voiced by Mike Myers. The interview came a day after DreamWorks announced the development of six “Shrek”-themed visitor attractions around the world. (E XPRESS)

A Month in Music Washington Post pop critic Chris Richards picks February’s best new recordings Music
Shy Glizzy, ‘Young Jefe’ When this Washington rapper looks in the mirror he sees a lover, a ﬁghter, a nuisance, a menace, a hot head, a cool breeze, a dude crazy in love with the sound of his own trash talk. Accordingly, the highlight of Glizzy’s new mixtape reads more like a daily afﬁrmation than a
brag: “I’m so awesome!” Absolutely.
Katy B, ‘Little Red’ On her second album, Katy B continues spelunking London’s dance music underground, feels big feelings in the high-decibel darkness, and sings them back out in the shape of a pop song.
Temples, ‘Sun Structures’ The old-school psych-rock on this young Brit band’s debut sounds highly studied and is polished just so. But if your air guitar has been collecting dust, it’s a lovely solution.
Angel Olsen, ‘Burn Your Fire For No Witness’ Everything burns slowly on Olsen’s new album, where the 26-yearold singer channels older voices (Leonard Cohen, Hope Sandoval) to describe ancient feelings (love, longing) in ways that feel new.
Dierks Bentley, ‘Riser’ He can do feel-good, down-low and everywhere in-between, but Bentley is at his best on “Bourbon in Kentucky,” soaking his mangled heart in Jim Beam. “There ain’t enough bourbon in Kentucky for me to forget you,” he sings. “So forget you.”
Pretty Unlikely, Eh? Comedy Central duo Keegan-Michael Key, far left, and Jordan Peele, left, have signed on for the final four episodes of the “Fargo” miniseries planned on FX.

“The Statler and Waldorf shot looks eerily like those selfies of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.” — COMMENTER PAIRESTA AT AVCLUB.COM sees
similarities between Muppet Theater duo Statler and Waldorf and two reallife British actors, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. The latter pair became the apple of the Internet’s eye last year when they began posting selfies while hanging out together. Likewise, @themuppets, including Statler and Waldorf, recently began posting selfies on Instagram.

“Somebody at Paramount wants some butts!” — COMMENTER MIKE BENNET AT HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM references
a line from the 1986 film “Top Gun” in response to an article about the legal clash between Paramount Pictures and the Twitter account @555uhz. The account had been tweeting “Top Gun” one frame at a time, which prompted the studio to file a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice, asking the social network to remove the account. Twitter complied, so it seems Paramount got the butts it wanted.

uses sales statistics to make a conclusion about America’s consumption of the once-staple breakfast beverage. Sales of O.J. have dropped almost every year for the past decade, culminating last year with sales hitting their lowest point in 15 years, Ferdman writes. He cites rising prices and dietary changes of the populace as two reasons for the decline.
the question “How crunk are you right now on the scale from ‘OKAY’ to ‘YEAH.’ ” The rapper, known for his partying ways, took to the social media site Tuesday night to answer fans’ questions during his “Ask Me Anything” session. Lil Jon also told redditors that the only things to “turn down” for are sleep or the police and that his “Crunk Juice” cup is not dishwasher safe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’ll be able to discern the weakness in the offensive being mounted by a rival. Turnabout should occur quickly. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’re eager to get something done that others haven’t been able to do. The clock is on your side, believe it or not. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll be encouraged by events and people, especially those close to home. You’re ready for anything — almost. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll have the chance to show off just a little, but what you choose to do is less important than how and when you do it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Someone in charge is likely to give you more control than usual over your own part of a major endeavor. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can make a decision that shifts the tide of a current competition in your favor. Still, there may be no time to let down your guard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’ll have just enough to work with, and with only a minor alteration, you should be able to win the day for yourself and another. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may have to rethink your current strategy. Someone is taking advantage of a weakness you weren’t even aware you had.
