Poll: 59 percent support gay marriage.
Support for Gay Marriage Hits New High Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority (7 in 10) also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons. Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not. Beyond the constitutional questions, a record-high 59 percent say they support same-sex marriage, while 34 percent are opposed, the widest margin tracked in Post-ABC polling. The poll was conducted in the wake of a series of rulings by federal judges that state bans on samesex marriage are unconstitutional. PEYTON M. CRAIGHILL AND SCOTT CLEMENT (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Health A second baby born with the AIDS virus may have had her infection put into remission and possibly cured by very early treatment — in this instance, four hours after birth. Doctors revealed the case Wednesday at an AIDS conference in Boston. The girl was born in suburban Los Angeles last April, a month after researchers announced the first case from Mississippi. That was a medical ﬁrst that led doctors worldwide to rethink how fast and hard to treat infants born with HIV, and the California doctors followed that example. The Mississippi baby is now 3½ and seems HIV-free despite no treatment for about two years. The Los Angeles baby is still getting AIDS medicines. A host of tests suggest that the L.A. baby has completely cleared the virus, said Dr. Deborah Persaud, a Johns Hopkins University physician who led the testing.

A Gold Rush of Theories Folks ponder who (Jesse James?) buried coins found in Calif. Los Angeles Word last week that a Northern California couple found $10 million in gold coins while walking their dog has set off a rush of theories over who left behind all that loot. One is that Jesse James’ gang deposited it in hopes of someday ﬁnancing a second Civil War. Another postulates that the gold originally belonged to gentleman robber Black Bart, who wrote poetry when he wasn’t sticking up stagecoaches. But the theory gaining the most traction is that the hoard is made up of most of the $30,000 in gold coins that Walter Dimmick stole from the U.S. Mint in San Francisco in 1901. The coins were never recovered. That theory, from amateur coin historian Jack Trout, set off a ﬂurry of calls to the U.S. Mint after it was reported by the San Francisco Chronicle on Monday. “We do not have any informa-

tion linking the Saddle Ridge Hoard coins to any thefts at any United States Mint facility,” mint ofﬁcials said in a statement Tuesday. (The coins are called the Saddle Ridge Hoard after the area of the couple’s land where they were discovered.) Dimmick is said to have spirited six sealed bags — each ﬁlled with 250 $20 gold pieces — out of the mint, where he was the chief cashier. The Saddle Ridge Hoard contains 1,400 $20 gold pieces, 50 $10 gold pieces and four $5 gold pieces, with a range of dates beginning in 1847 and extending to 1894.
Don Kagin, a rare coin dealer who represents the couple who stumbled upon the coins, said the San Francisco Mint heist was one of the ﬁrst possibilities he and his staff checked out. But even if the mint had coins on hand covering a span of 47 years, which is unlikely, those in the hoard include some so badly worn that they wouldn’t have been there, said David McCarthy, Kagin’s chief numismatist. As for some of the other theories: The Jesse James one fails to account for the fact the Missouri outlaw died 12 years before the last coin was struck and was born the year the ﬁrst one was. Black Bart robbed stages only between 1875 and 1883, when he was caught and sent to prison. The finders have done some research, Kagin said, and believe their property in California’s Gold Rush country was occupied at the time by someone in the mining industry. That person must have squirreled away the coins over time. Why the owner never came back for the coins, well, that’s another mystery. JOHN ROGERS (AP)

Research Study for Adults with
Major Depressive Disorder
Middle-Aged? Put Down the Steak Health Could too much protein put you on the path toward an early grave? For middle-aged people who consume lots of meat, milk and cheese, the answer could be yes, according to a study published Tuesday in the journal Cell Metabolism. U.S. and Italian researchers tracked thousands of adults during nearly two decades and found that those who ate a diet high in animal proteins during middle age were four times more likely to die of cancer than contemporaries with low-protein diets — a risk factor, if accurate, comparable to smoking. They also were sever-

al times more likely to die of diabetes, researchers said. “The great majority of Americans could reduce their protein intake,” said one of the study’s coauthors, Valter Longo, a University of Southern California gerontology professor and director
of the school’s Longevity Institute. “The best change would be to lower the daily intake of all proteins, but especially animalderived proteins.” That advice comes with a caveat. Even as researchers warned of the health risks of high-protein diets in middle age, they said eating more protein actually could be a smart move for people older than 65. “At older ages, it may be important to avoid a low-protein diet to allow the maintenance of healthy weight and protection from frailty,” another co-author, USC gerontology professor Eileen Crimmins, said in a release detailing the ﬁndings.

Diplomats Search for Ukraine Solution Paris
Facing off in Europe’s capitals, Russia and the West began trying to build the elements of a diplomatic solution to Europe’s gravest crisis since the Cold War — even as the West appeared increasingly resigned to an entrenched Russian presence in Crimea. NATO hit back by putting Russia on suspension, and the European Union extended $15 billion in aid to Ukraine, matching the amount the country’s fugitive president accepted from Moscow to turn his back on an EU trade accord. But most of the bargaining chips Wednesday belonged to Russia, whose troops are fanned out across Crimea and control most of its strategic facilities. “I’m not optimistic they’re going to leave,” said Michael McFaul, who served as President Barack Obama’s

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and several European counterparts conducted a round of diplomacy in Paris to try to ﬁnd an exit strategy in Ukraine. While negotiations were inconclusive, ofﬁcials expressed optimism that at least the two sides were talking. Kerry said the encounter was “very constructive, without promising something that is not deﬁned yet, without raising hopes that are inappropriate to raise.” Lavrov warned against Western support of what Moscow views as a Ukrainian coup, saying that could encourage government takeovers elsewhere. “If we indulge those who are trying to rule our great, kind historic neighbor,” Lavrov said, “we must understand that a bad example is infectious.”

West offers $16B to Kiev as Russia keeps control of Crimea
Russian troops were still stationed in Crimea on Wednesday as Ukraine’s crisis held.
One key piece of leverage that the West has over nearly bankrupt Ukraine: hard cash. The protests that triggered Ukraine’s crisis erupted when ousted President Viktor Yanukovych accepted $15 billion in aid from Russian President Vladimir Putin in exchange for dropping an economic partnership deal with the EU. On Wednesday,
the EU matched the aid — which the Russians withdrew — and the U.S. topped that up with an additional $1 billion. Ukraine’s prime minister said that he still feared Putin might attempt more land grabs. “Mr. President,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk said, “stop this mess.” L A R A J A K E S A N D MARIA DANILOVA (AP)
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton likened Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions on the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. The Press-Telegram of Long Beach, Calif., quoted Clinton as saying Putin is a man “who believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness.”

A normal person.” In an extensive interview granted to Corriere della Sera in Italy and La Nacion in Argentina, the pope had a lot to say. (AP/E XPRESS) On Same-Sex Marriage
On Women in The Church
On Pope Benedict
The Catholic church could accept some types of same-sex civil unions, Francis said — though he is against gay marriage. “Matrimony is between a man and a woman,” he said. But he added that efforts to “regulate diverse situations of cohabitation [are] driven by the need to regulate economic aspects.”
The pope said women could have a bigger role in church hierarchy in the future — saying a senior cardinal is consulting with experts on potential options. “Women must have a greater presence in the decision-making areas of the church,” he said. “But I would call this a ‘functional’ promotion. That won’t take us very far.”
Francis said he and Pope Benedict XVI had agreed that the emeritus pontiff wouldn’t remain hidden away, as Benedict had said he would spend his retirement, but would participate more in the life of the church. “The emeritus pope isn’t a statue in a museum. He’s an institution,” Francis said.
Francis Gets TMZ Treatment On Wednesday, Francis had to contend with a new bout of celebrity as “My Pope” hit Italian newsstands, a weekly gossip magazine devoted entirely to him. “My Pope” includes a free pullout poster with one of Francis’ memorable quotes from the previous seven days.
On Sex Abuse Francis acknowledged the “profound” wounds abuse leaves and credited Benedict with having turned the church around. But he then got defensive: “The Catholic Church is perhaps the only public institution that has moved with transparency and responsibility. No one has done more. And yet the church is the only one that has been attacked.”

Washington, a city that has found no glory in its sports teams of late and has been tarnished by lawmakers seen as incapable of making laws, now faces another ignominy. No longer can it claim to be the most traffic-congested place in the nation. With the nation’s economy on the rise, trafﬁc congestion picked up last year in all but one of the 10 most congested metropolitan regions: Washington. In fact, Washington was one percentage point less congested, according to Inrix, the global trafﬁc-tracking company that uses transponders in 100 million vehicles to provide real-time trafﬁc ﬂow data used in trafﬁc reports. Every other city that made the trafﬁc top 10 saw congestion shoot up last year, including Los Angeles (8.5 percent), New York (5 percent), Boston (22 percent) and San Francisco (13 percent). Although D.C. can no longer take perverse pride at being No. 1 or even in the top ﬁve (it slumped to seventh by one yardstick and 10th by another), commuters who want to fume can take heart that they still waste 40 hours a year stuck in trafﬁc. Much has been written about a shift in the region’s urban dynamic, with people increasingly moving to the city. The population is up, but the number of households that own a car is not. More people are using public transit, rental cars and bicycles to get around. But that’s not unique to D.C.,

nor is it the primary reason that the region saw a decline in congestion. “That’s what happens when D.C. shuts down for a month and government hiring slows with sequester,” said Jim Bak of Inrix. Furloughs and the government shutdown last year put fewer drivers into the daily commute, he said. “If we didn’t have the shutdown, D.C. would have been ﬂat or up slightly,” Bak said. “Blame it on
Congress. That’s kind of a popular thing to do these days, isn’t it?” Washington wasn’t alone in seeing a drop in congestion. So did Youngstown, Akron and Toledo in Ohio, and Scranton and Allentown in Pennsylvania. “When you look at the cities with drops, they were the Rust Belt cities that never got [their economy] going last year,” Bak said.

That is $220 million more than the most recent projection and nearly double the initial estimate when the light-rail line was proposed in 2001.

Local MEET THE CANDIDATES
Va. Bike Legislation Is Derailed tation Subcommittee #2 is where bike legislation tended to run off the road. That was in large part thanks to former delegate John Cox, the former chairman and a longtime opponent of new road regulations for bikes. Cox retired last year, and this session a member of House Republican leadership, Del. Barbara Comstock, was behind a bill to ban following a bike too closely. Virginia is one of the only states in the country that does not protect cyclists under tailgating laws, Comstock said. So advocates were ﬂabbergasted when, having survived the rocky terrain of the lower chamber, the bill was passed by indeﬁnitely in the Democratic-led Senate transportation committee.
Richmond Virginia is for lovers, but it’s not always for bikes. Thanks to a deadly combination of rural expanses and trafﬁc-clogged suburbs, the state is behind many of its peers in making the roads safer for cyclists. Leaders from both parties pledged to catch up this year, in time for a 2015 international road race in Richmond. But while some gains have been made, advocates say a partisan ﬁght appears to have derailed hopes for more. In past years, House Transpor-
“This isn’t a culture war issue this isn’t about ﬁscal policy, this is really basic road safety.” — M A R K BL ACK NELL , PRESIDENT OF THE WASHINGTON AREA BICYCLE ASSOCIATION
“I was shocked. All of us were shocked,” said Mark Blacknell, president of the Washington Area Bicycle Association. Sen. Creigh Deeds, who chairs the transportation committee and voted to pass over Comstock’s bill, acknowledged that he may well have supported the same policy
in the past three sessions. But, he said, “you always have to reserve the right to be smarter than you were the day before.” He was swayed, he added, not by politics but by concerns from state police that the measure would have been difﬁcult to enforce. A separate proposal from Sen. Bryce Reeves, increasing the minimum clearance between cars and bicycles from two to three feet, fared better. It passed the Senate in January and the House on Wednesday. A third bill ﬁning drivers who don’t wait for trafﬁc to pass before opening their doors was squashed in the same House transportation subcommittee that had stalled so many bike bills before.

Muriel Bowser Life story: Bowser, 41, grew up in Northeast’s North Michigan Park neighborhood, where her father held an Advisory Neighborhood Commission seat for 30 years. After graduate school, she worked in policy-related jobs before running for an ANC seat in Riggs Park. ThenMayor Adrian Fenty endorsed her in a 2006 special council election, helping her win with 40 percent of the vote. On the Council, her agenda has eschewed cutting-edge policy prescriptions in favor of smallerbore quality-of-life measures aimed at seniors, homeowners and youths.

SAT Fails to Make the Grade New York The SAT college admission test will no longer require a timed essay, dwell less on fancy vocabulary and return to the familiar 1600-point scoring scale in a major overhaul intended to open doors to college for students who are now shut out. The second redesign of the SAT in this century was announced Wednesday and is scheduled to go into effect when today’s high school freshmen take it in 2016. The College Board also pledged to offer test-preparation tutorials for free online, enabling students to bypass pricey SAT-prep classes. Out in the redesign will be “SAT words” that have long prompted anxious students to cram with flashcards, as the test will now focus on vocabulary words that are widely used in college and career. Out, too, will be a much-reviled rule that deducts a quarter point for each wrong answer to multiplechoice questions, deterring random guesses. Also gone: The 2400-point scale begun nine years ago with the debut of the required essay. The essay will become optional. Back will be one of the iconic numbers of 20th-century America: The perfect SAT score returns to 1600. College Board ofﬁcials said they want to make the SAT more accessible, straightforward and grounded in what is taught in high school. Experts say SAT scores have long been strongly correlated to family income, a dynamic the College Board hopes to shake up. David Coleman, the College Board’s president, ﬁred a broadside at the test-prep industry. “The College Board cannot stand by while
Too Hard? See How You Would Fare on the Current SAT Here are a few sample and practice questions that illustrate portions of the current version of the test, drawn from The College Board’s Official SAT Study Guide.

The math section draws from fewer topics than before. 4. Points won’t be deducted for wrong answers (previously they cost a quarter of a point) 5. The essay is now optional. 6. The score returns to 1600 with a separate score for the essay. 7. The exam will include a passage from a founding document or other relevant text, such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. 8.

some test-prep providers intimidate parents at all levels of income into the belief that the only way they can secure their child’s success is to pay for costly test preparation and coaching,” Coleman said.

Board will deliver four college application fee waivers to each testtaker meeting income eligibility requirements, allowing students to apply to four schools for free. The redesign follows a challenging decade for a standardized test that has wielded enormous inﬂuence in American education. Advocates say the SAT provides a common yardstick for academic merit; critics call it a tool to protect the interests of the elite.
The new initiative comes as the 88-year-old SAT has slipped behind the rival ACT in total student customers. Originally the Scholastic Aptitude Test, the SAT shed that name years ago. It underwent a major change in 2005 that drew mixed reviews. A writing section was added with multiple-choice questions and an essay. Now, the new initiative comes as the 88-year-old test has slipped behind the rival ACT in total student customers. The two tests overlap in mission but diverge in style and content, with the ACT traditionally measuring achievement and the SAT measuring thinking skills. In 2012, the ACT surpassed the SAT in the number of reported test-takers. Both exams also are facing challenges from the growing test-optional movement. The National Center for Fair and Open Testing lists about 800 colleges and universities that admit a substantial number of undergraduates without requiring them to submit SAT or ACT scores. A mong t hem is A mer ican Universit y, which star ted the experiment in 2010. Now 18 percent of its applicants do not submit SAT or ACT scores. NICK ANDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Defensive Wish List
The Redskins addressed one pressing defensive need by ensuring that they will not lose top pass-rusher Brian Orakpo to free agency. But many holes remain on a unit that ranked secondworst in the NFL in points allowed. When free agency gets underway in a few days (negotiation period begins Saturday, and players can begin signing contracts Tuesday), Washington is expected to take an aggressive approach to meeting their many needs. Let’s look at the biggest remaining holes on the defensive side of the ball and possible free agent targets. MIKE JONES ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Back pain forced Tiger Woods to drop out of last weekend’s tournament.
Tiger Says He’s Ready To Play

This could be the biggest need on the entire roster as the Redskins have no proven players at either strong or free safety. Brandon Meriweather and Reed Doughty have expiring contracts, and it remains unclear whether Washington will attempt to re-sign either. Bacarri Rambo struggled mightily in the limited action he saw as a rookie last season. The team just re-signed Jose Gumbs, but he played primarily on special teams last season. Phillip Thomas missed all of his rookie season, and it’s hard to say how much Washington can count on him. The main question is whether they can afford some of the top safeties on the market. They consumed $11.5 million of their roughly $30 million of cap space when they used the franchise tag on Orakpo. They did create around $4 million in cap space by releasing Adam Carriker and Sav Rocca. So, the Redskins could have between $20 million and $23 million of cap space. But with so many needs, that money will go quickly.
Gone is London Fletcher, and Perry Riley remains unsigned. The only inside linebackers on the roster are special teams contributor Josh Hull, Keenan Robinson, who has missed much of his first two NFL seasons because of injury, and Will Compton, who spent the bulk of the year on the practice squad. Riley had expressed a desire to re-sign with Washington, but the two sides remain far apart on a deal, so he is expected to test the waters of free agency. Talks with the Redskins remain ongoing, however. Donald Butler re-signing in San Diego for $6.8 million a year could help set the market. The Redskins need to find two significant contributors at this position.
The Redskins re-signed DeAngelo Hall to fill one starting cornerback slot; now they need to find another starter and probably one more backup. David Amerson will enter his second season, but Redskins coaches have questions about how ready he is to start. Look for Washington to try to add another veteran to the mix to replace Josh Wilson. E.J. Biggers served as a versatile backup last season and also is a free agent, and Washington has expressed some interest in re-signing him. Richard Crawford is coming back from injury and can chip in, but he’s not starter quality. The Redskins had interest in Aqib Talib last season but couldn’t afford him. With Brent Grimes re-signing with Miami for $8 million a season earlier this week, Talib is expected to want about $9 million a year, which could exceed Washington’s budget. There are a number of other quality corners on the market and in the draft, however.
Top safeties available: Jairus Byrd (Buffalo), T.J. Ward (Cleveland), Donte Whitner (San Francisco), Antonie Bethea (Indianapolis), Chris Clemons (Miami), Louis Delmas (Detroit)
Top inside linebackers available: Riley, Karlos Dansby (Arizona), Brandon Spikes (New England), Daryl Smith (Baltimore), D’Qwell Jackson (Cleveland)
Top cornerbacks available: Aqib Talib (New England), Sam Shields (Green Bay), Vontae Davis (Indianapolis), Brandon Browner (Seattle), Dominique RodgersCromartie (Denver), Charles Tillman (Chicago), Corey Graham (Baltimore), Alterraun Verner (Tennessee)
Three days after Tiger Woods withdrew in the middle of the final round at the Honda Classic with lower back pain, Woods returned to work at the Cadillac Championship by saying he feels better after a few days of constant treatment, and that he was good enough to try to defend his title. He just won’t be playing the new Blue Monster until the opening round today. Still being cautious about back spasms, Woods said he would chip and putt while walking a course that is entirely different from the one where he has won four times. The Honda Classic was the second time in 10 tournaments that Woods experienced back pain during a round. It was the fourth time in ﬁve years that he withdrew in the middle of a round because of injury. For a guy with four surgeries on his left knee, the focus has shifted to his lower back.

Jerry Blevins was a walk-on at the University of Dayton, and even though he made the team he saw little action as a freshman and sophomore because of control problems. But he turned the corner as junior for the Flyers in 2004 and was drafted that spring by the Chicago Cubs in the 17th round. He was 7-3 as a junior with a 3.79 ERA after having nearly a 10 overall ERA in his ﬁrst two years. “Most of the time you do what you are thinking,” said Blevins, who is entering his first season with the Nationals. “At first, I would start with the smaller stuff,
such as ‘I can sink this ball down.’ Think positive and positive things come out of it.” The Nationals hope to get positive results out of the left-handed reliever, who had been with the Oakland A’s since 2007. He was acquired by Washington in a trade with the A’s this offseason, as the Nationals sent speedy minor league outﬁeld prospect Billy Burns to Oakland. Blevins, 30, was 5-0 with a 3.15 ERA in 67 games out of the bullpen for the A’s last season. He threw 60 innings and allowed 47 hits and 17 walks with 52 strikeouts. For his career, the 6-foot-6 lefty is 13-6 with two saves and 3.30 ERA in 281 big league appearances.

Blevins Comes to Nats With Title Hopes
Jerry Blevins was 5-0 with a 3.15 ERA in 67 games with the A’s last season.
The Nationals hope he can provide a stabilizing presence as a veteran lefty for ﬁrst-year manager
Matt Williams. Blevins has been reunited with former college teammate Craig Stammen in the Nats bullpen, but it is more than friendship that brought Blevins to the East Coast. “This is the absolute best opportunity to win a championship this year,” Blevins said. “I am excited to be part of such a good club, to be part of a high-level team.” Blevins made his ﬁrst spring training appearance Sunday. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning in a 10-3 win over the Marlins. “He doesn’t light up the radar gun, but he commands the ball in the [strike] zone,” Williams said. DAVID DRIVER (FOR E XPRESS)

Jaroslav Halak has posted a 24-9-4 record with a .917 save percentage in 40 games with the St. Louis Blues this season.
Caps Acquire an Old Foe Washington trades Neuvirth and Klesla to Sabres for Halak Capitals The Capitals saved their biggest move for Wednesday, acquiring goaltender Jaroslav Halak and a third-round pick in 2015 from the Buffalo Sabres for goaltender Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Rostislav Klesla. This is the second time in six days that Halak, 28, has been traded. He was sent from St. Louis to Buffalo as part of the Blues’ deal to land Ryan Miller and now heads to the top of the Capitals’ goaltending depth chart. Halak, who will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, is in the ﬁnal year of a four-year, $15 million contract with an annual cap

hit of $3.75 million. In 40 games with the Blues this season, Halak posted a 24-94 record with a .917 save percentage and 2.23 goals-against average. Halak needs no introduction to Capitals fans. His performance in the 2010 Eastern Conference quarterﬁnals was a large reason why the Montreal Canadiens were able to knock off the Presidents’ Trophy winning Capitals in seven games.
It was that playoff elimination that spurned the Capitals’ transition from a high-powered, free-wheeling offensive team to one trying to establish a more balanced identity — something they’ve yet to ﬁnd consistently under their third coach since that switch. He’s also the 10th goaltender the Capitals will have used over the past seven seasons, dating back to 2007-08, joining a list that includes Olie Kolzig, Brent Johnson, Cristobal Huet, Jose Theodore, Semyon Varlamov, Michal Neuvirth, Braden Holtby, Tomas Vokoun and Philipp Grubauer. Neuvirth, 25, wasn’t happy with what had amounted to a back up role over these past two seasons as he appeared in a combined 26 games and back in December his agent asked that the Capitals trade the Czech netminder.

Never A Dull Moment Photographer Garry Winogrand quietly captured the exquisite idiosyncrasies of everyday life Exhibits In the 1950s, when photographer Garry Winogrand started casually documenting his fellow New Yorkers, few people cared that he was taking their picture. By the time he died of cancer in 1984 at age 56, attitudes had changed, says the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Erin O’Toole, a curator of a Winogrand retrospective co-organized with D.C.’s National Gallery of Art and Winogrand protege Leo Rubinfien. “At first, people didn’t notice him,” O’Toole says, “but as time went on … people started confronting photographers on the street.” That never stopped Winogrand, who took thousands of pictures, some of which are on view for the first time in the SFMOMA/NGA exhibit. He became “surreptitious and agile,” O’Toole says, and continued working in New York, Houston, Los Angeles and other cities. He didn’t always shoot crowds, or shoot secretly; some of his most affecting works are quiet portraits. While his New York photos portrayed the city’s density through mobbed street scenes or faces in the crowd, Winogrand’s L.A. work focused on car culture and lone pedestrians crossing sprawling boulevards. “Few other photographers have captured what L.A. is really like,” says O’Toole, who grew up in L.A. in the 1970s and ’80s, when Winogrand worked there. “It was a challenge for Winogrand to grapple with the lack of street culture, but he succeeded in a great way.” As to how Winogrand got his candid shots, “He would get right in the middle of the action,” O’Toole says, “but he didn’t hold the camera” — a small Leica — “up to his face for long, and he would turn away or bring the camera down if he felt that people were watching him.” Today’s would-be Winogrands use similar stealth to snap phone pictures of colorful characters on the Metro or attractive men and women in bars (pretending to text is a common ruse). Privacy concerns may have changed, but Winogrand’s yen to capture moments in the everyday lives of strangers remains.

‘Metropolitan Opera, New York City,’ circa 1951 Acting as a visual sociologist, Garry Winogrand had “an uncanny knack for capturing very small gestures and physical relationships between people,” says curator Erin O’Toole.
‘Richard Nixon Campaign Rally, New York,’ 1960 On Nov. 2, New Yorkers packed Herald Square to see President Dwight Eisenhower show his support for Richard Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.’s presidential campaign.
‘Democratic National Convention, Los Angeles,’ July 1960 Same election. Other coast. Other party. Looks like Democrats had more fun.
‘Fort Worth,’ 1975 Although he’s best known for his portrayals of the bustling metropolis, Winogrand took pleasure in capturing the everyday lives of all people.
‘Central Park Zoo, New York,’ 1967 Winogrand captured one of his most famous (and bizarre) images at the height of the civil rights movement.

Pussy Riot members, from left, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova attend a 2012 hearing.
Punk Off, Putin Pussy Riot is out to topple the Russian government, says author Masha Gessen Books “Pussy Riot is not a band,” says journalist Masha Gessen. “Pussy Riot is a precise weapon, aimed directly at [Vladimir] Putin.” People not carefully following the story could easily think Pussy Riot is just some punk rock group that ran afoul of Russian authorities. But though Pussy Riot plays concerts and releases music videos, it’s a protest collective that aims to highlight what it considers Russia’s slide into authoritarianism. Punk performances are their chosen mode of dissent. In her new book, “Words Will
INDIES & ARTIES
Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot,” Gessen explores how Pussy Riot’s three most famous members became such powerful and effective dissidents. And martyrs, to an extent: Nadezhda “Nadya” Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina ended up in Russian penal colonies after their arrests for a 2012 performance in a Moscow cathedral. (Yekaterina “Kat” Samutsevich’s sentence was suspended.) Alyokhina, 25, seemed destined for activism. Raised by her mother and grandmother, she was encouraged to make her own decisions. As a young mother, she organized a grassroots effort to defend an oldgrowth forest. Later, in Moscow, she fell in with Pussy Riot. Samutsevich, 31, was a lonely software designer, living at home with her domineering father, when she went back to school for pho-

‘Kids for Cash’ The scandal’s right in this documentary’s title: In 2008, two Pennsylvania judges were accused of sending juveniles to for-profit prisons in which they had financial interests (“Kids” focuses on one judge, Mark Ciavarella). The film does a nice job of parsing the complexities of the case and using it for a larger purpose — calling into question a system that not only allows for long-term incarceration of people too young to drive, but also looks on each kid sentenced as a potential source of income.

up in Norilsk, a dismal, polluted mining town inside the Arctic circle. Though Tolokonnikova was a straight-A student, she rebelled against school authorities, declaring that her real education began at home, where she read scores of books by Russian philosophers and literary critics. “Nadya has always fascinated me the most,” Gessen says. “Though I documented her backstory very closely, I still can’t say how somebody like that comes out of Norilsk.” In the fall of 2011, the three women, plus several others who remain anonymous, formed Pussy Riot. They staged protest concerts at public places, where they shouted anti-Putin messages into toy microphones and created music videos from the footage. They wore neon colors and balaclavas. Russian officials’ outsized reaction to the cathedral performance is a testament to how effective the women are at getting their message out, Gessen says. Their harsh punishment only served to spread the word that Russia had returned to Soviet-era oppression, she says. “The authorities didn’t realize Pussy Riot was this well-spoken and this attractive,” Gessen says. “All they saw was a bunch of clowns jumping around and screaming in funny getups.” Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina are out of prison, and Pussy Riot continues to bedevil Putin, staging protests at Sochi and publicizing the inhuman conditions at Russian prisons. So here’s a word of wisdom to any would-be Putins out there: Silly-looking punk bands may be more dangerous than they seem.

No Sleep Till … ?
When not touring or recording, Dupuis packs her schedule with academics, poetry and writing. She’s an MFA candidate in poetry at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and, up until this past semester, she taught a freshman and sophomore expository writing course there through a teaching fellowship. A former music journalist, Dupuis also regularly contributes to musician-curated online publication The Talkhouse. All the while, Dupuis has always maintained a band or two. “[There’s] not very much sleeping and a decent amount of anxiety,” Dupuis says. “I think I’ve always taken on more stuff than I can actually handle. Since I was a kid it’s kind of become my status quo.”
Twenty-five-year-old Sadie Dupuis is doing her part to keep aggressive guitarrock alive. As frontwoman for Speedy Ortiz, the Northampton, Mass., singerguitarist crafts propulsive fuzz jams laced with vivid imagery and liquid wordplay. On Speedy Ortiz’ 2013 debut LP “Major Arcana” and new EP “Real Hair,” Matt Robidoux’s angular guitar riffs jab into Dupuis’ angsty melodies, while bassist Darl Ferm and drummer Mike Falcone conduct call-andresponse rhythms in shifting time signatures. It’s all meticulously relentless.
We Have Liftoff Dupuis chose the name Speedy Ortiz on a whim; it’s a minor character from the alt comic book series “Love and Rockets” by brothers Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez. “I was reading ‘Love and Rockets’ at the time,” Dupuis says. “I just wound up sticking with it. [The comic is] about ’80s punk rock and rocket ships and all kinds of fun stuff.”
Speedy Ortiz is made up of, from left, guitarist Matt Robidoux, singer Sadie Dupuis, bassist Darl Ferm and drummer Mike Falcone. The dog, unfortunately, is not in the band.
Babe Steps In 2011, Dupuis briefly performed in an all-female Pavement cover band called — seriously — Babement. “It was sort of funny … to have a barely post-collegiate all-female cover band of [Pavement],” Dupuis says. “Up until recently, a stereotypical Pavement fan was a dude in his mid-30s.” Though Dupuis tends to ignore
“I think I’ve always taken on more stuﬀ than I can actually handle.” — SA DIE DUPUIS, SINGER-GUITARIST WITH SPEEDY ORTIZ, ON HER RESPONSIBILITIES AS A BAND FRONTWOMAN, A STUDENT AND A WRITER
gender duality, she finds that the discussion of typical gender roles often finds its way into press coverage of her music — though less so in recent years. “It used to be that every article you read about a female performer would start off by saying ‘female drummer’ or ‘female guitarist,’ as if the gender is part of the instrument being played,” Dupuis says.
Ixnay on the ’90s Though Dupuis wears many hats, she refuses to let ’90s revivalist be one of them. Critics regularly compare Speedy Ortiz’ skuzzy guitar-pop to the music of quintessential ’90s alternative rock acts like Weezer, Helium or Liz Phair, but Dupuis doesn’t quite understand the constant associations. “It’s a rock band,” Dupuis says of Speedy Ortiz. “Occasionally lo-fi, somewhat casually leaning. We like dissonance and experimenting with time signatures and sounds. I think that applies to stuff outside of the ’90s.” DREW LITOWITZ (FOR EXPRESS) Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Thu., 8 p.m., $12; 202-667-7960, blackcatdc.com. (U Street)

ANSWERS: 1C, 2D, 3E, 4B, 5A
Since retiring his humor column in 2005, Dave “I Am Not Making This Up” Barry has largely been making things up — namely eight children’s books, two novels and one Christmas fable. His newest book, “You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty,” is a return to the form that made Barry famous: eclectic essays drawn from his life. In the title piece, Barry escorts his teenage daughter to a Justin Bieber concert: “It turns out that the noise teenage girls make to express rapturous happiness is the same noise they would make if their feet were being gnawed off by badgers.” In “Seeking Wifi in the Holy Land,” he travels to Israel (with his Jewish wife and daughter), because, “In thy sixty-fifth year, thou shalt go into the Land of Israel, and thou shalt travel to every place in a tour bus filled with Jews.” He also gives questionable book promotion advice to aspiring writers in “How to Become a Professional Author,” cautioning “Only eight percent of book tours are fatal to the author.” Hopefully that statistic is made up, because Barry is on a book tour, and he’s making two stops in Washington on Thursday. I’m so excited to be chatting with you!
Well, think how I feel, Sadie Dingfelder.
I do have a funny name.
That’s a great name. I actually thought somebody made it up. I wish I had made your name up — it’s that great.
Well, my middle name is Fechter.
Oh my god! Sadie Fechter Dingfelder. It almost sounds obscene.
Speaking of making things up, since you stopped doing your
column it seems like you’ve mostly focused on ﬁction. Why?
What I got tired of was having to produce exactly the same length column once per week. The lure of fiction is you can write whatever length you want. But I still like writing humor essays, and I liked
The Israel story in “You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty” was on the longer side. Did you include your vacation so you could make it a tax write-off?
Hey, I didn’t think of that. But now that you mention it, since it’s going to appear in the Washington Post Express that I did go to Israel for business purposes, I guess there’s no reason not to deduct that amount of money.
Well, you’ve said it several times here.
There’s no way around it now. I was really impressed with your discovery that “Leonardo DiCaprio” can be rearranged to spell “A Ripe Racoon Dildo.” How did you ﬁgure that out?
I used to do anagrams by hand. It’s hard work, and we were better men for it. But now with these websites, anyone can do an anagram, which is how I did Leonardo DiCaprio/A Ripe Racoon Dildo. It’s a good thing you wrote a book. You might not be able to print “dildo” in a family newspaper.
You know, standards of family newspapers keep changing, and I credit a lot of that to the band Pussy Riot, which might be a gigantic prank developed by people in Russia to get The New York Times to put the word “pussy” on the front page. If we can put “Pussy Riot” in the newspaper, we can probably put “dildo” in the newspaper.
I enjoyed your essay about getting older, and was wondering: As you are thinking about your legacy, do you think you’ll be best remembered for helping create International Talk Like a Pirate Day?
I have long said the only thing I will be remembered for, my only lasting achievement, is helping to popularize International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Nobody will have the vaguest idea who I am 20 years from now, but people will still be talking like a pirate on Sept. 19. By God, I was part of that. SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Weekend Pass | entertainment BILL WATTERSON (COURTESY ANDREW MCMEEL) FROM “THE COMPLETE CALVIN AND HOBBES”
A Strip Down Memory Lane C.H. PETE COPELAND (THE PLAIN DEALER/AP)
Eternally, Calvin and Hobbes When documentary filmmaker Joel Allen Schroeder was a kid, his role model was a tiny, ink-drawn troublemaker in the comics section of the newspaper: the human half of that famous, adventuresome duo Calvin and Hobbes. With his unfettered imagination, contempt for authority and devoted friendship with a (supposedly) stuffed tiger, Calvin was the embodied fantasy of every child and nostalgic adult during the comic’s decadelong run. Even after the last strip ran in 1995, the characters never lost their shine. “Calvin and Hobbes were always there,” Schroeder, 34, says in his film “Dear Mr. Watterson,” which screens at Artisphere on Saturday. “I don’t really remember life without them.” With his own money and a barebones team of “Calvin and Hobbes” fans, Schroeder began working on the film in between gigs as a freelance editor and camera operator in the mid-2000s. (One of those fans was D.C. musician Mike Boggs — aka We Were Pirates — who wrote the score. At Artisphere, Boggs will perform and participate in a postscreening Q-and-A with Express contributor Nevin Martell, author of “Looking for Calvin and Hobbes.”) When Kickstarter launched in 2009, Schroeder opened the project
Calvinball A game whose only rule is that any player can make up any rule at any time, Calvinball is the opposite of organized team sports, invented on the fly and different every time. It’s played with an arbitrary mix of balls, wickets, rackets and mallets, the competitors wear black bandit masks and the scoring system is somewhat murky (Q to 12! Oogy to boogy!). DEAR MR. WATTERSON
up to crowd-funding. “I thought, if we can fund the film through fans of the strip, that’s evidence of the impact of the strip,” he says. He wasn’t disappointed — two Kickstarter appeals yielded more than $121,000 from “Calvin and Hobbes” enthusiasts worldwide. That gave Schroeder the freedom to make his film without majorleague outside backers, who might have pressured him to do something he wanted to avoid at all costs: contact the creator of the comic, Bill Watterson. The notoriously reclusive Watterson, who has given only a handful of public interviews in the two decades since the end of “Calvin and Hobbes,” doesn’t appear in the f ilm (Schroeder says he wanted to “respect his privacy”). But interviews with reverent fellow cartoonists — the artists behind “Foxtrot,” “Pearls Before Swine,” “Non Sequitur” and many more — leave no doubt that Watterson elevated the art of the comic. Scenes from Schroeder’s visit to Chagrin Falls, Ohio, (Watterson’s hometown) offer visual proof of how much the picturesque Cleveland suburb inspired the outdoor tableaus in “Calvin and Hobbes.” Fans of the strip will drool over shots of Watterson’s early, pre-“Calvin” cartoons and his original drafts. Schroeder thinks “Calvin and Hobbes” owes much of its impressive legacy to a business decision: Watterson refused to license the comic for merchandising opportunities, dodging the character dilu-
Snowmen Calvin’s snowmen — which take the form of killer cannibals, political protesters and avant-garde nudes — are anything but child’s play. He uses them to embarrass his parents, explore the meaning of art and get vicarious revenge on enemies by building their likenesses and watching them melt.
The Baby Raccoon In March 1987, Calvin and Hobbes find a sickly baby raccoon in the forest. Over the course of a nine-day storyline, Calvin learns about love and loss, confronting the mysteries of death. This kind of existential and emotional depth set the strip apart from the lighter, simpler fare on the funnies page.
“Calvin and Hobbes” creator Bill Watterson, top, circa 1986, does not appear in “Dear Mr. Watterson.” “Frazz” cartoonist Jef Mallett, above, is one of the modern artists featured in the film.

Watterson’s stance against licensing “was almost un-American,” Schroeder says. “Most characters that are out there were created to be marketable.” Even without the kind of stuffed animals and lunchboxes that lure new, young readers to “Garfield” or “Peanuts,” “Calvin and Hobbes” has maintained a growing fan base through the evangelism of its diehard devotees. “Dear Mr. Watterson” might be the most effective bait yet. “I’ve got the complete [‘Calvin and Hobbes’] collection on my coffee table, and I still read a couple strips a day,” Schroeder says. “I love to hear that after people see the film, they’ll bring out their books for first time in a long time … or share it with their kids.” CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR E XPRESS)

Sunday Funday Watterson felt stifled by the limited (and shrinking) space allotted to comics in the newspaper, which left room only for the most basic stories and punch lines, and he persistently advocated for more artistic freedom. In 1992, Watterson’s syndicate finally gave him an unbroken half-page on Sundays, liberating him from conventional panel structures. The Sunday strips often featured elaborate dream sequences and scenes from Calvin’s wild imagination. Closure The last strip, which ran on Dec. 31, 1995, depicts a fresh snowfall ready for play. “It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy … Let’s go exploring!” Calvin says to Hobbes, toboggan at the ready. “To me, that’s words to live by,” filmmaker Joel Allen Schroeder says. “It’s just such a perfect way to end it.” C.C.
DEAR MR. WATTERSON
‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ is a love letter to a beloved comic strip
Over the course of 10 years, Bill Watterson produced 3,150 “Calvin and Hobbes” strips. It’s hard to play favorites, but here are a few standout moments and recurring themes:
Despite the lack of merchandising, “Calvin and Hobbes” still draws new, young readers today.

entertainment | Weekend Pass tribute album, “Ciao My Shining Star,” he knew he had to get back to music eventually: “It’s what I do to earn a living,” he says. Recording was more comfortable to him than touring, even if it was just as gradual: “I spent a lot of time preparing to do it,” he says. Though it took only 11 days to record “Dear Mark” in the studio, the process spanned an entire year. Mulcahy would start work on a song, set a date to record, send a demo to the musicians he tapped
Miracle Legion and Polaris frontman Mark Mulcahy has slowly returned to touring after an eight-year hiatus.
“When you do something for a long time and then you don’t do it, it starts to make your mind whacked out.”
Back in Business Singer Mark Mulcahy eases back into work — one song at a time Music It took former Miracle Legion singer Mark Mulcahy eight years to release a follow-up to his 2005 album, “In Pursuit of Your Happiness,” a hiatus that, by the end of it, had started to affect his psyche. “When you do something for a long time and then you don’t do it, it starts to make your mind whacked out,” Mulcahy says. “Even if it’s riding a bike or playing baseball: If you deny your mind, it starts to get angry at you.” Mulcahy had every reason to take leave from music, though: In 2008, his wife died, leaving him to care for their twin 3-year-old daughters. While he still released
the occasional single during the break, his priorities had shifted — he couldn’t tour and be a stayat-home dad. “I really didn’t feel too comfortable going anywhere,” he says. Since the release of his fourth solo album, last June’s “Dear Mark J Mulcahy, I Love You,” the singer has slowly inched his way back into the music business, hitting the road for a few days here and there. “They don’t really know what’s going on,” Mulcahy says of his now 8-year-old girls, who stay with Grandma or friends when he’s on tour. “It’s amazing that you have these great things like Skype and FaceTime where you can see each other and talk.” Though fans of his work — including Thom Yorke, Michael Stipe and The National — banded together to raise money for Mulcahy by covering his songs for a 2009
For Petes’ Sake From 1993 to 1996, Mark Mulcahy fronted Polaris, a band that existed solely to make music for Nickelodeon’s “The Adventures of Pete & Pete,” a quirky kids show about two brothers (played by Danny Tamberelli, above left, and Michael C. Maronna) with the same name. Mulcahy wrote four songs each season (collected in a soundtrack album), including the catchy, nonsensical theme song “Hey Sandy.” In 2012, Polaris played its first concert at a “Pete & Pete” reunion in L.A. R.G.
from the Northampton, Mass., music scene near his home, then cut it in just one day. After repeating the process every month or so for a year, he had an 11-song album. Much like his work with Miracle Legion, a jangly, ’80s guitarrock band in the vein of R.E.M., and with Polaris, the house band for the ’90s Nickelodeon series “The Adventures of Pete & Pete,” “Dear Mark” is full of clever, sometimes nonsensical wordplay, clean guitars and distinctive melodies. Considering what had gone on in Mulcahy’s life since his last album, it’s a fun listen — and a funny one, too. Take this passage from “Hustle”: “The first time is the worst time/ The next time is the time before the third time/ And so on, and so on.” “I really had a lot of fun writing those lyrics because most of them are just made up,” he says. “I wanted to write an album that wasn’t about me, so that’s what you get, I guess. If it’s not about me, it might be funny. If it’s about me, maybe it’ll be sad.” RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

MORE FUN THAN A BARREL OF BOURBON Chefs are aging sauces in old liquor barrels to roll out complex flavors Dining Trends The next time you walk into a restaurant and see a stately oak barrel, don’t be so quick to assume it’s full of booze. For centuries, wooden barrels have been used to age wine, whiskey and other liquors, and now local chefs and gourmands are applying the same technique to give their condiments and sauces a mellow, oaky flavor. The concoctions take on components of the barrels — often bought
or donated from local distilleries that once used them to age spirits — including vanillin (an organic chemical compound that gives vanilla its distinct flavor and smell), wood tannins and the essence of the liquors that once sloshed around inside. “The technique itself is getting more widely used,” says Adam Howard, chef de cuisine at Range. “In the last couple of years, people have gotten back into a little more soulful, a little more rustic approach to [cooking].” Last summer, Range purchased 200 pounds of hot chilies from Big White Barn Produce in Frederick, Md. Unsure at first how he’d use so much heat in the kitchen, Howard decided to

Range ages its hot sauce in a barrel that once held mescal, top left. The sauce is used in a beurre blanc sauce for Range’s fried pig ear dish, top right. Langdon Wood maple syrup, above, is aged in old whiskey barrels. Mandu serves soy sauce, left, aged in a rye whiskey barrel.
ferment the produce haul with peaches and then age the mash in barrels that once held mescal to make a smoky hot sauce with a hint of sweetness and a fiery finish. “It’s hot but it has a lot of interesting characteristics to it besides just ‘burning,’ ” says Howard, who uses the hot sauce in a beurre blanc sauce with fried pig ears and green tomato pickles ($9) and as a spicy cocktail sauce at the restaurant’s raw bar. The barrel-aging treatment also works with more international cuisines. At Korean food favorite Mandu, co-owner Danny Lee drummed up an idea for a barrel-aged soy sauce with friends from the Chinatown eatery
Sixth Engine, who had an old rye whiskey barrel donated to them from Catoctin Creek Distilling Company in Purcellville, Va. They filled the barrel to the brim with 35 gallons of soy sauce and let it sit for six months. “We had no idea what to expect,” Lee says. “We basically tasted it every two weeks or so and made notes.” The end product was a mellow, almost buttery soy sauce that tasted less salty due to the infusion of sugars from the rye-soaked barrel. Mandu and Sixth Engine give bottles away as gifts to friends and regulars at their restaurants, and Lee incorporates the sauce into specials at Mandu, including rabokki (a hybrid of ramen with fried rice cakes, $16) and tteokbokki (a spicy Korean snack food, $16). At Sixth Engine, executive chef Paul Madrid uses the barrel-aged soy sauce on the sweet and spicy wings ($12). Next, Lee and Madrid plan to age vinegar in the now rye-and-soy-saucesoaked barrel, and then even try their hand at some kind of booze aged in the same barrel. If a whiskey-soy-vinegar martini doesn’t sound enticing, consider something a little sweeter. In a warehouse in Northeast D.C., Art Drauglis barrel-ages his Langdon Wood maple syrup in whiskey, bourbon or brandy barrels from Catoctin Creek and other distilleries. His syrup is available online and in local shops and is occasionally featured in restaurants such as Bistro Bohem, where it’s drizzled onto the chicken schnitzel and waffle ($14). Though barrels can be reused, Drauglis learned — after about 10 batches — that they do have a shelf life. “The last thing that was in there was just kind of nasty,” he says of the super-syrup-soaked cask that he first started experimenting in several years ago.

Casting a Wide Net
IN OTHER CHEWS
The worldly menu at Catch 15 appeals to diverse appetites and tight budgets Now here’s a bulletin you haven’t read in a long time: K Street has a new place to eat. It’s called Catch 15 and it comes from the owner of the recently shuttered Tuscana West downtown. The concept won’t set off any trend alerts: small plates in dozens of flavors, from veteran Washington chef Vincent Torres, formerly of Mio. Even at high noon, Catch 15 feels like 8 at night. The long and narrow restaurant is lighted as though OkCupid has a stake in it. The design details — brown velvet chairs, she er c u rtains between booths, Sinatra crooning in the background — only heighten the romantic effect, which feels a little weird when it’s just you and a pal from the office out for a bite to eat. Meanwhile, low seating and a dancing fire seduce patrons from the rear of the 118-seat restaurant, a former print shop. At a time when many new restaurants forgo offering bread baskets, a cone of warm, seeded flatbread with a couple of tapenades is a welcome departure. Working from a basement kitchen, Torres dispatches some pleasing dishes. Here comes a juicy groundlamb kebab bedded on basmati rice and escorted by a cucumberand-yogurt sauce, a taste of the Middle East for $7. Four shrimp in a haze of garlic and butter nod to Spain; flaky spanakopita does Greece proud. Empanadas stuffed with artichokes, goat cheese and green olives call to more than just vegetarian appetites. Looking for something in a different size? One of the larg-

er plates finds slices of sauteed veal jazzed up with sweet and hot peppers alongside a turban of spaghetti. Catch 15 plays up its raw bar, but the oysters I’ve slurped here — scrawny and cool rather than cold — are no match for the models dispensed at Old Ebbitt Grill near the Treasury building. And I
could hardly taste the tuna tartare for all its bold accents — pickled ginger and pomegranate, among others — that masked the raw fish. Otherwise, good catch, K Street. TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

I was picking up some spaghetti during a recent trip to Whole Foods when I realized (gasp!) I’d forgotten bananas. Fighting the steady current of carts as I backtracked to the produce section made me feel like a salmon (wild-caught, never farm-raised) swimming upstream. All the while, smug shoppers gave me the stink-eye as if I’d forgotten my canvas tote and had to schlep my groceries home in a plastic bag. The jarring experience was enough to get me excited about Instacart (instacart.com), a grocery delivery service that offers sameday drop-offs to addresses in D.C., Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Takoma Park and Alexandria. The San Francisco-based startup works with local Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and — just recently — Costco stores, so you can shop a dizzying selection of more than 42,000 products online (no Costco membership needed). Delivery fees are reasonable: If you’re willing to wait two hours, Instacart charges between $3.99 and $7.99. For deliveries within an hour, the rate jumps to $13.99. And in perhaps the most cost-effective and convenient deal, Costco orders over $35 are dropped off free of charge. That’s a lot of bananas. HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS)

Based on The Suit by Can Themba, Mothobi Mutloatse, and Barney Simon Direction, adaptation, and musical direction by Peter Brook, Marie-Hélène Estienne, and Franck Krawczyk When Philomen, a middle-class lawyer, catches his wife Matilda having an affair, he forces her to treat her lover’s left-behind suit as an honored guest—feeding it, entertaining it, and taking it for walks as a constant reminder of her adultery. But the setting of Sophiatown, a teeming South African township that was erased under apartheid, is as much a character in Themba’s story as his unfortunate couple. Renowned director Peter Brook’s French stage adaptation is now given new life by returning to the source language of English. Working with his long-time collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne and composer Franck Krawczyk, they have adapted the play and set it to music from sources as diverse as Franz Schubert and Miriam Makeba.
by David Williamson Directed by Lee Lewis One of Australia’s most acclaimed playwrights takes on one of the most powerful media magnates in modern history. Featuring an ensemble cast in multiple roles, Rupert is a timely, unconventional, revue-style imagining of the life and times of Rupert Murdoch. In his stellar rise to the top, watch as he tap dances (sometimes literally!) his way through his first newspaper acquisitions, discoes toward his American breakthrough, shares a fiery flamenco with Margaret Thatcher, and charms some of the most colorful characters of the 20th century.

She’s a student, lonely and depressed at times, seeking friendship through the Internet. He’s jealous and possessive, spying on her actions online. Tensions mount to a shocking final scene, leaving no winner or loser in the devastating game they must play.

by William Shakespeare Directed by Tom Morris Puppetry design by Handspring Puppet Company In their first collaboration since their international hit War Horse, Bristol Old Vic’s Artistic Director Tom Morris and Cape Town’s Handspring Puppet Company present an inventive new take on Shakespeare’s romantic comedy of love triangles, fairies, and kings. The story focuses on transformation, survival, and song, where a belief in the mystical isn’t superstition, but a magic lore encoded in the routines of a community living on the edge. Thanks to the genius of Handspring, the Bard’s young lovers are sometimes human and sometimes puppets, Puck takes a different form every time he appears, and workshop tools, wooden blocks, and other found objects come to life.
Directed by Adina Tal Eleven deaf and blind actors lead a magical tour through their inner worlds of darkness, silence, and…bread. While the process of breadmaking unfolds on stage, a unique encounter occurs between the actors and the audience. Together, they re-enact vivid and distant memories, recall forgotten dreams and joyful moments, and touch the spark of creation present in every one of us. Presented in partnership with VSA, the international organization on arts and disability.

Solomon and Marion
Written and directed by Lara Foot with Dame Janet Suzman and Khayalethu Anthony Featuring Dame Janet Suzman, one of the world’s most revered actresses of stage and screen, Solomon and Marion is the story of two injured souls searching for redemption in fragile, post-apartheid South Africa. Marion has watched her life drain away. Children and husband gone, she ekes out an existence in a country utterly transformed. But it’s the only home she has. As the new South Africa prepares for the World Cup finals, old divisions and suspicions seem as deep as ever, and the intruder she has been expecting, dreading, and needing arrives.

Bristol Old Vic in association with Handspring Puppet Company
Conceived by Olivier Comte Since 2007, Tokyo Theater Company KAZE has been collaborating with France’s Les Souffleurs commandos poétiques. Led by award-winning actor, writer, and artist Olivier Comte, the souffleurs (“whisperers”) appear seemingly out of nowhere to whisper secrets, poems, and other literary and philosophical expressions into the ears of passers-by through long hollow canes they call rossignols (“nightingales”)—creating spontaneous, peaceful, and meaningful poetic interruptions.

Federal employees make it possible through the CFCNCA Special Issue 3
Thank you for your spirit of public service. You inspire us all to serve and to make a difference.
Federal employees make it possible $51 million. Generous federal employees raised $51,200,000 during the 2013 Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area. That translates into 51 million chances to educate a child, heal the sick, and save a rainforest. 51 million opportunities to nurture a family, feed the homeless, and support a veteran. 51 million ways to provide essential assistance to our neighbors in need as well as struggling people from around the world. 51 million ways to make it possible. Despite a government shutdown in the middle of the campaign, despite sequestration and furloughs, despite an economy still recovering from the Great Recession, tens of thousands of federal workers made a commitment to their community. These extraordinary employees gave substantial gifts to their favorite charities through the Combined Federal Campaign. These contributions
ensure the non-profit organizations that donors treasure will be able to continue their important work. Alan Shropshire is a Nuclear Regulatory Commission executive who was loaned to the CFC for six months to support agencies as they ran their campaigns. “To paraphrase an email from a CFC Campaign Director at a large agency,” said Shropshire, “raising funds to support the charities approved by the Combined Federal Campaign is one of the most important things federal employees do all year. Working with loaned executives, federal agencies, and charities who were all working toward one common goal of raising funds to benefit others was one of the more remarkable endeavors I’ve ever been associated with.” Each federal agency in the Washington,
DC metro area holds its own unique CFC campaign. From large agencies like the Department of Defense which raised nearly $11 million and the Department of Health and Human Services which raised more than $5.2 million to smaller agencies such as the Peace Corps which raised $136,000, federal employees enthusiastically participated in the Combined Federal Campaign. Through the CFC, federal employees made an average pledge of $662. This is a testament to their passion for making possible more promising futures, a better community, and an improved world. The Combined Federal Campaign and the more than 4,400 participating CFC charities extend their sincere appreciation to the federal workforce for their noteworthy dedication and generosity.

HIV Patient: “Whitman-Walker Saved My Life.” Guy was a typical 18-year-old in North Carolina: living his life, going to school, and feeling young and invincible.
helped him stick to his treatment regimen. And our Public Benefits and Insurance Navigators helped him get coverage for the care he receives.
That all changed when he received an HIV diagnosis and was told that he probably only had a couple of years to live.
“What Whitman-Walker offers is like nothing else I’ve ever seen,” said Jenkins. “It’s complete care for the complete person. They don’t just treat your illness; they treat your life and health. I was able to get services that I didn’t even know I needed until I got here. And it’s made a huge difference in my life.”
Then, a few months later, his mother was also diagnosed with HIV. Guy would spend several years helping to care for her, but she would pass away from complications of the virus. Guy also faced challenges in his own health care. Lack of easy access to medical care, stigma around HIV, and a public health system that was inadequate for his needs made it difficult for him to stay in consistent care. And consistent care is important for someone with HIV; it keeps them healthy and makes them much less likely to infect other people. “It was literally more than an hour one way to get to my doctor,” said Jenkins. “If my car broke down or I didn’t have enough money for gas, I couldn’t get there. There were no other resources any closer.” After his mother’s death, Guy made the decision to move to DC. “I told my grandmother that I was going to DC and got
Today, 14 years after a doctor told him he only had a couple of years to live, Guy is married and has a family. He’s healthy and happy. He’s become an HIV advocate and activist, telling his story to anyone who will listen and working to end stigma around the virus. Guy Jenkins, Whitman-Walker Health patient
in the car,” said Jenkins. “And I never came back. DC became my new home.” He “sofa surfed” between two friends’ homes for nearly a year, living on couches and airbeds. During that time, he found Whitman-Walker Health. And his life forever changed. Through Whitman-Walker, he was able to get high quality medical care. Our Medical Adherence unit
“I couldn’t have made it without support and care from Whitman-Walker Health,” says Guy. “I’m not the same person I was when I was diagnosed. Now, I’m living and loving life. And I want to do all I can to help others who are living with HIV and to help keep others from getting infected.” Your support helps Whitman-Walker Health care for thousands of patients like Guy each year. Please give generously through your workplace giving campaign. Story courtesy of Whitman-Walker Health Photo courtesy of Ajay Merriweather

Who Is D.C.’s Queen? NBC
Eye on Farrow Ronan Farrow is giving my brain a workout on “Ronan Farrow Daily” (1 p.m., weekdays on MSNBC). My Popcultur-o-campus is hyperstimulated: Who does Ronan look like? Mother Mia? Supposed dad Woody Allen? Or do the intense blue eyes, forehead slab, and smirky smile conjure up possible father Frank Sinatra? My news nucleus must process like 17 NEWSY THINGS per show: Clinton papers, Venezuelan unrest, Miley Cyrus’ seemingly By Marc exploitative use of Silver little people. My social conscience feels obligated to send selfies and tweets to “Call to Action,” a segment asking viewers for help “reporting out” topics like student loans. My skeptical lobe is activated by the “exclusive collaboration with a startup media company” whose technology “penetrates the deep Web” to find cool people to interview, like a marijuana dealer who recycles discards from a medical MJ company’s trash. Um, couldn’t you find this dude just by hanging out with dope fiends? Finally, my overburdened brain wonders: Who watches at 1 p.m.? College students? Unemployed news junkies? Retirees? If so, their brains, like mine, must be all tuckered out. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Aretha Franklin is set to make another visit to the White House for the “Women of Soul” concert honoring musical lady-legends. Franklin, left, will join Melissa Etheridge, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monáe and Jill Scott at the event. “Women of Soul” will be broadcast on PBS on April 7 and streaming live on the White House website today at 7:30 p.m. But does the reigning Queen of Soul out-rank another royal and frequent visitor to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Queen Bey (aka Beyonce, right)? Let’s compare the two divas’ Washington connections. EMILY HEIL (THE WASHINGTON POST ) ARETHA: RON EDMONDS (AP), BEYONCE: STAN HONDA (GETTY IMAGES)
ARETHA At least four, between late 2009 and 2012, according to White House visitor logs.
BEYONCE Number of visits to Obama’s White House
At least four (White House visitor logs show that she’s been twice, but they don’t include the two most recent stops: once for the first lady’s birthday party last month and a private visit with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy).
Performances for the ﬁrst family
FLOTUS has twice taken her daughters to see Bey in concert, and the singer has famously crooned at a number of Obama events, including Michelle Obama’s birthday, the president’s second inauguration and his first inaugural ball.
“The queen of soul!”
Presidential seal of approval
“Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls.”
Aretha gave a memorable performance with Lou Rawls at the White House in 1994, and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2005.
What about other presidents?
Her group Destiny’s Child played an inaugural concert for President Bush in 2001. Beyonce later told Interview magazine that Bush “appreciates that we’re positive role models.”
Ever lip-sync for the ﬁrst family?
Definitely yes. The singer admitted she used a pre-recorded track when she performed the national anthem at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.
FLOTUS and her mom have attended at least one of Aretha’s shows in Washington, and the legend has performed at a national Christmas tree lighting, and, of course, at the president’s first inauguration (who can forget that hat?).
Songs of Ice and Fire: The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that HBO has hired 10 hip-hop and Latin artists for a mixtape based on its show “Game of Thrones.” Among the collaborators is Wale, Common, Daddy Yankee and Big Boi, left, who is a self-proclaimed fan of the drama series. “I’m really happy,” Big Boi told WSJ, “I get to be part of the process of one of my favorite shows.” The mixtape, “Catch the Throne,” will be released Friday.

“Everyone who has been patiently awaiting a recorder remix of Miley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ can finally rejoice.” — GIDEON RESNICK AT THEDAILYBEAST.COM
tells the world about “Brecking Wall,” a remix posted to the music-sharing site SoundCloud that incorporates badly played woodwinds into the chorus. D.J. Detweiler is the genius behind the Miley mix, as well as several others he’s dubbed “FluteDrop,” which all substitute off-tune recorders for the bass drop.
“Sorry to burst your high-flying dreams, but Funny or Die is behind HUVr, the mysterious tech company claiming to have invented the first hoverboard.”
“It’s your choice, America. Fix the climate, or the guac gets it.”
— LAURA VITTO AT MASHABLE.COM debunks
summarizes Chipotle’s threat to cut guacamole from its menu. The popular burrito chain has been warning investors that weather “associated with global climate change” may eventually have a negative impact on the price of avocados. Chipotle made the statement last month in its annual report, which came to light Tuesday, unleashing an Internet Guacamole Death Watch.
rumors that a company has actually developed a hoverboard similar to the one popularized in “Back to the Future Part II.” It turns out the promotional video put out by “HUVr Tech” that stars Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk, Moby, Terrell Owens and more, was an elaborate comedic hoax. A costume designer, who listed the job on her résumé, blew its cover.

“Studies have shown that blue objects suppress appetite, which is why you don’t see a lot of blue foods.” — JEFF VRABEL AT GQ.COM suggests those who want to lose weight should eat their meals off of blue plates. Other suggestions he makes in his article, “The 10 Habits of Highly Unﬂabby People,” include treating your beer like Scotch (that is, save the heavier varieties for special occasions) and do your own chores. “You’ll save money, improve your home, and get exercise without all that pesky ‘working out,’ ” Vrabel writes.

PAR SCORE 145-155, BEST SCORE 220
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’ll find strength in standing firm. Take care that someone unexpected doesn’t knock you off balance at the last moment. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may not know the significance of a certain message, but you can probably translate it at least on a surface level. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Someone is looking over your shoulder, giving you advice you think you do not need. Think again! It may offer an important option. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You know what you must do after receiving a message from afar — and it’s certainly not what you are being asked to do in the message, is it? CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’re in the middle of a very productive phase, yet you may still have trouble determining what steps should be taken.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’re feeling unusual pressure from certain forces. As a result, you’re not likely to enjoy what you’ve been most anticipating.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can protect yourself and others better than usual, but a certain threat may still give you cause for concern, now and tomorrow. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) One idea gives rise to another — and so on. You’ll enjoy feeling very productive as others around you get stuck in a rut.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Not everything is as it seems, particularly when you find yourself far from home. Trust in the lessons that got you there. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) One thing leads to another in a way that you cannot fully control, but you can exert a certain unique influence.

Today: Mostly cloudy and colder today. Mostly cloudy tonight.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) After saying no for so long, today you may actually be able to say yes — and enjoy what comes next far more than you had anticipated. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You must prepare in a way that is not obvious to your opponents. Indeed, you may want to engage in a certain planned deception.
