Arlington, Wash. Looking for any signs of life in the quicksand-like mud below, searchers in helicopters scanned a huge debris field Sunday trying to find more than a dozen people still unaccounted for following a landslide that ripped through homes in rural northwestern Washington state Saturday. Rescuers’ hopes of ﬁnding more survivors were buoyed late Saturday when they heard people yelling for help from within the debris ﬁeld, but they were unable to reach anyone. The mud that killed at least four people and destroyed as many as 30 homes was so thick and deep that searchers had to turn back. Rescuers couldn’t hear any signs

The next time the American military transport plane known as Whiskey 7 drops its paratroopers over Normandy, France, it will be for a commemoration instead of an invasion. Seventy years after taking part in D-Day, the plane — now housed at the National Warplane Museum in western New York — is being prepared to re-create its role in the mission, when it dropped troops behind enemy lines under German ﬁre. At the invitation of the French government, the restored Douglas C-47 will ﬂy in for 70th-anniversary festivities in June and again release paratroopers over the original jump zone at Sainte-Mere-Eglise. Museum ofﬁcials say the twin-

prop Whiskey 7 is one of several C-47s scheduled to be part of the D-Day anniversary, with jumpers made up of active and retired military personnel. But it is believed to be the only one ﬂying from the United States. The plane will ﬂy to France by
way of Newfoundland, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland and Germany, each leg 5½ to seven hours. Erin Vitale, chairwoman of the Return to Normandy Project, compared it to trying to drive a 70-year-old car across the country without a breakdown. “It’s going to be a huge challenge.” Among the 21 men it carried in 1944 was 20-year-old Leslie Palmer Cruise Jr., who also will make the return trip to France, his ﬁfth, and be reunited with the craft — once it’s on the ground. He is ﬂying commercially from his Horsham, Pa., home outside Philadelphia. “With me, it’s almost, sometimes, like yesterday,” Cruise, now 89, said by phone, recalling his ﬁrst combat mission. “It really never leaves you.” CAROLYN THOMPSON (AP)

trees. One neighborhood “is not there anymore,” Hots said. The number of missing could change because some people may have been away from home when the slide hit just before 11 a.m. Saturday, Hots said, and some may have been able to get out on their own. Ofﬁcials said the mudslide blocked about a mile of State Route 530 near the town of Oso, about 55 miles north of Seattle. It was reported about 60 feet deep in some areas. Authorities believe the slide was caused by ground-water saturation from recent heavy rainfall. Several people — including an infant — were critically injured. About 20 to 30 people have been displaced, County Executive John Lovick said. Washington Gov.

Airlines Face ‘Rogue Pilot’ Threat Cockpits are secure against most threats, except from inside Dallas Reinforced doors with keypad entries. Body scanners and patdowns. Elaborate crew maneuvers when a pilot has to use the restroom. All those tactics are designed to keep dangerous people out of the cockpit. But what if the pilot is the problem? With no answers yet in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, investigators have said they’re considering many options: hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or catastrophic equipment failure. Nobody knows if the pilots are heroes who tried to save a crippled airliner or if one collaborat-
Meanwhile … France provided new satellite data Sunday showing possible debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, as searchers combing a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean tried without success to locate a wooden pallet that could yield clues to one of the world’s most baffling aviation mysteries. The new data consists of “radar echoes” in the same part of the ocean where satellite images previously released by Australia and China showed what might be debris from the plane, French authorities said. (AP)
ed with hijackers or was on a suicide mission. Whatever the outcome, the mystery has raised concerns about whether airlines and governments do enough to make sure that pilots are mentally ﬁt to ﬂy. “One of the most dangerous things that can happen is the rogue captain,” said John Gadzinski, a Boeing 737 captain and aviationsafety consultant. “If you get somebody who — for whatever reason —
turns cancerous and starts going on their own agenda, it can be a really bad situation.” Malaysia Airlines said this week that its pilots take psychological tests during the hiring process. Many U.S. airlines also perform mental health screenings when pilots and crew apply for jobs. Once a pilot is hired, however, U.S. airlines rarely, if ever, test a pilot again for mental health, say several experienced pilots. Accord-
ing to Federal Aviation Administration rules, U.S. pilots must pass a physical exam annually or every six months, depending on their age, but there is no speciﬁc requirement for a mental-health test. Gregory Ostrom, a doctor in Elgin, Ill., estimates that he has seen 200 pilots a month for the past 13 years. The most common mental issue he sees is obsessivecompulsive behavior — pilots are perfectionists. But he admits that his examinations aren’t psychiatric in nature. “Nobody sits down and says, ‘Tell me about your home life,’ ” he said. Still, there have been no fatal accidents on a so-called mainline U.S. airline since 2001. The largest pilots’ union says the safety track record validates the screening system. DAVID KOENIG (AP)

Caught in Gridlock at D.C.’s DMV Want to appeal a ticket? A bureaucratic nightmare awaits you
“It could take up to two years to get a decision. It’s not just the money, it’s the [principle]. They’re just so inﬂexible.” — CL A RE PILKING TON, WHO SPENT MONTHS WRANGLING WITH THE D.C. DMV AFTER
RECEIVING TICKETS MEANT FOR ANOTHER VEHICLE, ON DEALING WITH THE AGENCY
Charlie Haupt figures that if he’s lucky, around June 2015 he’ll hear from the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles on his appeal of the parking ticket the agency says he received in February 2012. And he has his ﬁngers crossed that if the department accepts his argument — that the ticket can’t possibly be his since it was issued to a Ford and he drives a Nissan — he will be refunded the $110
he paid as part of the appeals process. But that probably won’t happen until later in 2015, about 3½ years after the ticket was issued. There are bureaucracies and then there is the D.C. DMV. Granted, departments of motor vehicles have never enjoyed stellar reputations for customer service, but stories from those who have been caught in D.C.’s bureaucracy suggest
a level of frustration that is hard to match, particularly for those who get caught in its Byzantine ticketappeals process. Want to adjudicate a ticket by mail? You’ll wait an average of 150 days for an answer from a hearing examiner, according to DMV ofﬁcials. Appeal that decision and it could take an average of 20 months to get an answer. But the good news
2.4M The number of tickets the D.C. DMV handles each year — a number that has mushroomed with the proliferation of automated camera enforcement designed to catch everything from red-light runners to oversize trucks. In fiscal 2013, the department’s 18 hearing examiners carried a caseload of about 11,500 tickets each. The agency’s ticket-processing system is 19 years old, but efforts to modernize it have been stymied. (T WP)
is it will take only six to eight weeks to get your money back. Last month, at an oversight hearing, D.C. DMV chief Lucinda Babers said the agency has reduced the waiting time for a road test to one month from three. It has revamped the registration process for the city’s taxis. But she acknowledged that problems remain with ticket-processing response times. The D.C. Council is attempting to address some of the concerns. Legislation working its way through the panel would allow people to submit additional information if they are found liable after their initial attempt at adjudication. DMV officials also would have to explain why the initial appeal was denied — something not currently required. LORI AR ATANI (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Friends Hold Vigil for Missing 8-Year-Old
Dozens of people held a vigil Saturday night for missing Relisha Tenau Rudd, 8.
County, Md., police, who were looking for the girl, found Tatum’s wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, dead at a motel in the Oxon Hill area. The next day police obtained the warrant
charging Tatum, 51, in her death. The search for the two expanded throughout the East Coast on Saturday, but no information emerged about their whereabouts.
What is of particular concern to city ofﬁcials, police authorities and child advocates is how Relisha came to be in the care of someone who was not a family member or a longtime friend of the family. D.C. Council member Jim Graham on Friday described Relisha’s family as “troubled” and said that Young had come to the attention of the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency even before Relisha disappeared. “I’m very concerned about what happened,” said Graham, who is chairman of the council committee that oversees the child-welfare agency.

New Walmart online tool compares prices, refunds differences The “Every Day Low Price” king is trying to shake up the world of pricing once again. Walmart has rolled out an online tool that compares its prices on 80,000 food and household products — from canned beans to dishwashing soap — with those of its competitors. If a lower price is found elsewhere, the discounter will refund the difference to shoppers in the form of a store credit. Walmart began offering the feature, called “Savings Catcher,” on its website last month in seven markets that include Dallas, San Diego and Atlanta. The tool compares advertised prices at retailers with physical stores — but not at such online rivals as Amazon.com. The company declined to say when the program could be expanded nationally. Citibank launched a similar program two years ago that sends Citi credit-card customers a check for the difference if Citibank ﬁnds a lower price from an online retailer. But Walmart is the ﬁrst traditional retailer to offer such a program. Ken Perkins, president of retail research ﬁrm Retail Metrics LLC, said the move will “put pressure on
Isn’t This Already Being Done? Big retailers, including Target and Best Buy, offer to match the lower prices of rivals — but only if shoppers do the research on their own. The idea behind Walmart’s feature is to do the legwork for customers. But unlike Target and Best Buy, Walmart’s policy does not include matching prices with online rivals. (AP)
everyone else to follow suit.” But he and other industry watchers voiced concerns that the tool doesn’t compare prices of online retailers. Walmart said it wants to see how competitors and customers respond to the program but that it doesn’t have any plans to add online stores to the test. Here’s how it works: A customer logs on to Walmart’s Savings Catcher page and types in the number on their receipt. The program compares prices of every item on the receipt to a database of advertised prices of competitors. Any difference is put on a Walmart online gift card. Walmart has had a price matching strategy for several years. In 2011, it simplified it by making sure workers have the advertised prices of competitors on hand at the register, eliminating the need for shoppers to bring in an ad from a rival store.

The Sky’s Limited As use of drones takes off, the FAA struggles to keep them grounded
A small, four-rotor drone hovered over Washington Nationals players for a few days during spring training in Florida last month, taking publicity photos impossible for a human photographer to capture. But no one got the Federal Aviation Administration’s permission ﬁrst. “No, we didn’t get it cleared, but we don’t get our pop ﬂies cleared either and those go higher than this thing did,” a team ofﬁcial said when contacted by The Associated Press. Drone ﬂights ceased the next day. The FAA bars commercial use of drones no matter how seemingly benign. The lone exception is an oil company that has been granted permission to ﬂy drones over the Arctic Ocean, and it took an act of Congress to win that concession. FA A off icials say rules to address the special safety challenges associated with unmanned aircraft need to be in place before they can share the sky with manned aircraft. The agency has worked on those regulations for the past decade and is still months and possibly years away from issuing ﬁnal rules for small drones, which are deﬁned as those weighing less than 55 pounds. Rules for larger drones are even further off. But tempting technology and an eager marketplace are outrunning the aviation agency’s best intentions. Photographers, real estate agents, moviemakers and others are hurrying to embrace the technology. A drone was used to photograph the two apartment buildings that collapsed in New York City earlier this month and a car crash in Connecticut. The AP, in fact, is one of sever-

al news organizations studying the possible use of drones. Unless FAA ofﬁcials receive a complaint or chance upon a news story that mentions drone ﬂights, they have little ability to ﬁnd out about violations. The ban was further undercut this month when a federal judge dismissed the only ﬁne the FAA has imposed on a commercial drone operator. The judge said the agency can’t enforce regulations that don’t exist. The FAA, which contends it controls access to the national air space, has appealed. The use of commercial drones, most of them small, is starting to spread to countries where authorities have decided the aircraft presents little threat if operators follow a few safety rules. Here, the FAA estimates that 7,500 small commercial drones will be in use within ﬁve years once the necessary regulations are in place. Still, the drone industry and some members of Congress worry the United States will be one of the last countries, rather than one of the ﬁrst, to gain the economic beneﬁts of the technology. “We don’t have the luxury of waiting another 20 years,” said Paul McDuffee, vice president of drone-maker Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing. “This industry is exploding. It’s getting to the point where it may end up happening with or without the FAA’s blessing.” JOAN LOW Y (AP)
Why Hasn’t the FAA Issued Rules? Jim Williams, head of the FAA’s drone office, said writing rules for the U.S. is more complex than other nations. The U.S. has far more air traffic than anywhere else and a greater variety of aircraft, from hot air balloons and old-fashioned barnstormers to the sophisticated airliners and military jets. At low altitudes, the concern is a small drone could collide with a helicopter or plane flown by a recreational pilot. “It’s a different culture in the U.S. and Canada,” Williams said. “People believe they have the right to just jump in their airplane and fly just like they do their car. ... We can’t set up a system that puts any of those folks at risk.” Interestingly, the FAA permits hobbyists to fly model aircraft that have so improved in technology that they’re little different from small drones. The FAA has issued voluntary guidelines for hobbyists, including staying away from airports, flying no higher than 400 feet and staying within the line of sight of the operator. (AP)
What’s Everyone Else Doing? Australia: TV networks use drones to cover cricket matches. Zookal, a company that rents textbooks to college students, plans to begin delivering books via drones this year. Japan: Yamaha Motor Company’s radio-controlled drones have been spraying crops for 20 years. The drones are cheaper than hiring a plane and are able to more precisely apply fertilizers and pesticides, even to the underside of leaves. Germany: Express delivery company Deutsche Post DHL is testing a “Paketkopter” drone that could be used to deliver small, urgently needed goods in hard-to-reach places. United Arab Emirates: It has a project underway to see whether government documents such as driver’s licenses, ID cards and permits can be delivered using small drones. United Kingdom: Energy companies use drones to check the undersides of oil platforms for corrosion and repairs, and real estate agents use them to shoot videos of properties. Last June, a Domino’s Pizza franchise in the U.K. posted a YouTube video of a “DomiCopter” drone flying over fields, trees and homes to deliver two pizzas.
The amount that worldwide sales of military and civilian drones will reach over the next decade, according to the Teal Group, an aerospace research company in Fairfax. (AP)
Delivering Aid Andreas Raptopoulos, CEO of Matternet in Menlo Park, Calif., predicts that in the near term, there will be a more extensive use of drones in impoverished countries. He sees a market for drones to deliver medicines and other critical goods to the 1 billion people around the globe who don’t have access to roads year-round. Later this year, Matternet plans to start selling to government and aid organizations a package that includes a drone and two landing pads. Facebook is in talks to buy Titan Aerospace, a maker of solar-powered drone-like satellites, to step up its efforts to provide Internet access to remote parts of the world. (AP)

Toss-Your-Bracket Sunday It’s a bad day for state of Kansas as No. 1 Wichita State and No. 2 Jayhawks are both upset
No. 8 Kentucky 78, No. 1 Wichita State 76
Kansas knows all about Stanford now. The Cardinal couldn’t deny that a slight at a news conference a day earlier fueled them just a bit before pulling their second upset of the NCAA tournament. Kansas freshmen Andrew Wiggins and Wayne Selden Jr. ducked their heads and giggled Saturday when asked about Chasson Randle, Stanford’s leading scorer. “Coach told me not to talk about it but I deﬁnitely took it as a challenge,” Randle said Sunday after the No. 10 seed Cardinal beat the second-seeded Jayhawks 60-57 to advance to the Sweet 16 in the
South Regional. “It was a little big extra motivation.” Enough for the Cardinal to make the Jayhawks the second No. 2 seed to be knocked out of this tournament in the third round. Wiggins was held to four points on 1-for-6 shooting. “I let a lot of people down,” he said. “If I would have played better, we wouldn’t be in this situation, you know? I blame myself for this.” Dwight Powell had 15 points and seven rebounds and Randle added 13 points, six steals and four rebounds for the Cardinal (23-12).

It took a program stocked with NBA prospects to ﬁnally end Wichita State’s perfect run. A nd re w Ha r r i son score d 20 points, twin brother Aaron had 19 and Kentucky survived a potential winning 3-pointer at the buzzer by Fred VanVleet to knock off the undefeated Shockers with a 78-76 victory Sunday in the NCAA tournament. Julius Randle added 13 points and 10 rebounds, and James Young also had 13 points for the No. 8 seed Wildcats (26-10), who made a series of clutch free throws in the closing minutes to advance to the Sweet 16 in arguably the most captivating game of a thrilling ﬁrst weekend. C le a nt hony Ea rly score d 31 points and Ron Baker had 20 for the Shockers (35-1), who hadn’t lost since last year’s Final Four while taking an entire city — and state — on quite a ride. Kentucky took the lead for good at 73-71 when Young knocked down a 3-pointer with less than 2 minutes to go.
Left: Chasson Randle got the last laugh Sunday as his No. 10 Stanford Cardinal upset No. 2 Kansas.
DeAndre Kane drove for the gamewinning layup with 1.6 seconds left and No. 3 seed Iowa State beat North Carolina, advancing to the Sweet 16 for the ﬁrst time since 2000. North Carolina’s Nate Britt raced the ball up court after Kane’s basket, but time expired before he could reach halfcourt and call a timeout. Ofﬁcials huddled for several minutes reviewing clock replays before ruling the game was over. The Cyclones (28-7) head to Madison Square Garden next week to face No. 7 seed Connecticut in the East Regional semiﬁnals. The Tar Heels (24-10) are gone in the NCAA tournament’s opening weekend for the ﬁrst time in consecutive seasons under coach Roy Williams. Kane finished with a doubledouble, with 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting and 10 rebounds to go with seven assists for the Cyclones. (AP)

Maryland Cruises Past Army Women’s Basketball A little more than 10 minutes into Sunday afternoon’s NCAA tournament ﬁrst-round game, Maryland Coach Brenda Frese had seen enough. The Terrapins opened the game with at best an uneven showing, and the result was a threepoint deﬁcit to Army at Comcast Center, so she didn’t hesitate to call timeout. Fou r t h-seeded Ma r yla nd emerged from the 30-second stoppage completely re-energized, reeling off 20 unanswered points to close the ﬁrst half during a decisive surge that secured a 90-52 victory in the Terrapins’ ﬁrst game in more than two weeks. Freshman point guard Lexie Brown led the Terrapins with 21 points on 9-for-11 shooting. Brown also hit three three-pointers and added ﬁve assists in the ﬁfth win in six games and ninth in 11 for Maryland. GENE WANG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Nationals Baseball mattered too much to Stephen Strasburg. He suspects he always knew that, but until this winter he never confessed to himself. He shared the conclusion last week without hesitation and with an unbridled smile, as he sat at his locker inside the Washington Nationals’ spring training clubhouse. The grin surfaced once Strasburg talked about his baby daughter, 5 months old, happy and healthy and growing like a weed. “I would never admit it,” Strasburg said. “But now that I’ve had something that’s more important, and the priority of being a good dad is more important to me, I think looking back, maybe I did put a little too much emphasis on baseball. Maybe it wasn’t my only thing I was worried about. But it was deﬁnitely higher up there than I thought it was.” One week from today, on open-
DAVID GOLDMAN (AP)
Lexie Brown’s 21 points gave Maryland a lot to smile about in its win over Army.
Baseball’s not the only important thing in Strasburg’s life
Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg says he’s not as worried about being perfect.
ing day, Strasburg will climb the mound at Citi Field in New York. He will carry with him a carefully revamped approach to the in-season preservation of his right arm, an elbow no longer stiﬂed by a pair of bone chips and, most signiﬁcantly, an altered perspective that comes from ﬁrst-time fatherhood. Since Strasburg entered professional baseball under the weight of massive expectation, internal and
external, he grappled with his perfectionist tendencies. “It’s always going to be a battle,” Strasburg said. “It’s going to be a process.” When he thinks about his daughter, though, the burden melts. Now he places his most intense focus on something other than baseball. Strasburg’s perfectionism drove him to morph from an out-of-shape high school kid to the best pitching prospect in a generation. But
in the majors, demanding perfection ceased to drive Strasburg and began to consume him. “I slowly got in this habit of trying to go out there and do it all,” Strasburg said. Nationals teammates and conﬁdants have noticed a difference in Strasburg this spring. He stands taller on the mound, in full command. He asks coaches questions with conﬁdence, secure but not stubborn in his approach. He hungers to be better, not to be perfect. More so, teammates believe, as fatherhood helped him relax. “He’s a more mature guy than he was a couple years back,” General Manager Mike Rizzo said. “I think he’s more comfortable in this environment. He’s just more comfortable with himself.” Strasburg will enter his ﬁfth major league season at the height of his powers. It all seems perfect. Inevitably, it will not remain that way. Strasburg has come to accept that, even to embrace it. When he leaves the park, he can leave baseball behind, knowing his favorite part of being a dad awaits. ADAM KILGORE (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Ovie Struggling at Even Strength Capitals There were multiple times at even strength Thursday night in Washington’s eventual 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings where the puck was a place the Capitals want to see it — on the stick of Alex Ovechkin with enough time for the star winger to get a shot off. But despite a handful of opportunities where Ovechkin was presented with an opportunity to do what he does best and put the puck in the back of the net, the 28-yearold was just off the mark. Such has been the case for Ovechkin lately. While Ovechkin has scored two power play goals in the past four games, the league’s leading

Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin hasn’t scored a five-on-five goal since Feb. 27.
goal scorer hasn’t converted ﬁveon-ﬁve in 11 games, a stretch that dates back to Feb. 27 at the Florida Panthers, the Capitals’ ﬁrst game back from the Olympic break. “Just the situation when we have
position in the zone, I have to ﬁnd open space,” Ovechkin said. “It’s hard right now, everybody play oneon-one basically. Especially against my line they put more pressure on me, ﬁve-on-ﬁve they don’t give me any freedom so I have to ﬁnd the rebound or ﬁnd the open space.” Capitals coach Adam Oates attributes part of Ovechkin’s evenstrength dry spell to simple realities of the league at this stage as teams become more diligent in their own zone while ﬁghting for a playoff spot. “You play stingy teams you’re not going to get a lot,” Oates said, “and scoring goes down as the season goes along.” K ATIE CARRER A (THE WASHINGTON POST )

people who live a simpler subsistence lifestyle, and the juxtaposition resonates on “Supermodel.” “It’s really about, I guess, the difference between the culture that we live in in L.A. and looking at the rest of the world and seeing how other people live with the focus on kind of just community, communication, real connections, social media and how social media is affecting our culture now,” Foster said. “I think it’s looking at isolation in the U.S. and that being something that’s kind of growing, and comparing that to other cultures that are really very in tune with how people have been living for thousands of years.”

The box office take of “Divergent” this weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. “The Muppets Most Wanted” came in a distant second place, earning $16.5 million. (AP)
A Worldly Sound The rockers of Foster the People sought a global feel for their sophomore album Music Mark Foster’s favorite hit songs are the ones written without thought given to eventual chart potential. So when it came time for him to pen the smash follow-up to his band Foster the People’s unexpected 2011 hit “Pumped Up Kicks,” he didn’t even bother to try.
“I feel like trying to write a song in order to be a big hit is just not something I’m interested in because it’s not going to come from an authentic place of expression,” Foster said. “I’ve heard a lot of bands try to do that type of thing on their second record … and a lot of times the stuff ends up sounding like Budweiser commercials. We don’t make music for that reason. We’re not the corporation of Foster the People. We’re a band.” The tsunami-like experience of having a multiplatinum, Grammynominated hit had left the trio feel-
ing unmoored. They weren’t sure exactly where they wanted to go, but directly to the studio wasn’t it. So Foster and bassist Cubbie Fink traveled the world for inspiration for their follow-up album, “Supermodel,” out now. Foster returned from his travels with song sketches, half-ﬁnished ideas and a general concept of where he wanted to go. The band recorded in Malibu, Calif., — a location that crystallized everything for Foster. He had just returned from visiting North Africa and the Middle East, where he encountered
“Really it’s a bizarre process to be striving for something, attain it, then have the whole world around you change.” — CUBBIE FINK , FOSTER THE PEOPLE’S BASSIST, ON THE WHIRLWIND OF SUCCESS THE BAND EARNED AFTER 2011’S GRAMMYNOMINATED SINGLE “PUMPED UP KICKS”
His experiences aren’t just reﬂected thematically. Sounds he heard are woven into the album’s gauzy dream pop, adding a ﬂavor he hadn’t initially expected. For instance, “Are You What You Want to Be?” with its 6/8 time signature and Dadaist lyrics leans heavily on sounds he heard while in Morocco. “I think that’s the fun part, really letting that wild animal in the room, then trying to catch the tail,” Foster said. “Once you have the tail, it’s going to pull you where it’s going to pull you. That’s the spirit of this album.” CHRIS TALBOT T (AP)
For the Benefit of Beatles Fans: A collection of John Lennon’s drawings and manuscripts is going up for auction June 4 in New York, Sotheby’s said. The sale includes a manuscript from 1965 called “The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield,” which is expected to sell for $40,000 to $60,000. Another is an illustration of a guitar player with four eyes, which Lennon created in 1964 or 1965. It has a presale estimate of $15,000 to $25,000. (AP)

“Parks and Recreation” writer Joe Mande has more than 1 million Twitter followers, but don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of the comedian. Many of his followers are robot accounts he paid for. It’s just one of the Internet stunts — like “Bitchface,” his new comedy album done in the style of rap mixtapes — that have set Mande apart from his peers. You can get to know him IRL when he tells jokes in D.C. on Tuesday.

If her latest single, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” is any indication, Latin pop star Shakira’s self-titled album features more rock, ska and writhing around on a bed with Rihanna than we’ve seen from the singer in the past. On the selftitled effort — her ﬁrst in four years — the Colombian songstress even goes country with the song “Medicine.” Looks like she learned something from her “The Voice” co-star Blake Shelton.

show, then dinner (OK, tater tots and a cheese board) at ChurchKey. HOW HE PROPOSED: “I brought it up, and at the end of the conversation, he surprised me by proposing.” The next day, they bought sparkling wine and proposed to each other. THEIR SONG: Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” STUPIDEST FIGHT: “Whether we should clean a comforter or throw it away,” Charlie says. “Whether the ties of the men in the wedding would clash with my maid of honor’s dress.” PET NAMES: “Hannah-banana.” “I’ve tried to make ‘Charizard’ happen, but it’s gone the way of ‘fetch.’ ”
Charlie, 27, is a lieutenant in the Coast Guard. Hannah, 25, is the condom distribution coordinator for the D.C. Dept. of Health. They live in D.C. THE MAIN EVENT: April 26 at a park in D.C. HOW THEY MET: At a birthday party thrown by one of his improv classmates (Hannah’s housemate). “We ended up sitting at a picnic table, talking for five hours,” Charlie says. “I ended up getting a sunburn but I also got Hannah’s number. I think the sunburn was worth it.” FIRST DATE: She came to his improv
Amanda and Jon Anderson Amanda Anderson (nee Greslick), 28, is a doctoral student at George Mason. Jon, 28, is a program analyst for the federal government. They live in Burke, Va. THEIR WEDDING: They married June 28, 2008, in Amanda’s home state of Maine. WEDDING MEMORY: “She ‘shushed’
me in front of our officiant.” “The officiant kept getting distracted by him! I can’t remember what he was saying. Probably that he was excited to eat the whoopie pies we were having at the reception.” DATE NIGHT: “With a 1-year-old, the perfect date would be sitting on the couch in my sweatpants with Mandi, eating some cheese, watching a movie in time for bed by 9 p.m.” KEEPING THE SPARK: “If I have
showered and don’t have baby vomit on my clothes it’s a good day,” she says. “However, we have both maintained a sense of humor and playfulness that keeps things fun even when times are stressful.” They’ve also made a list of 10 romantic things they want to accomplish before their 10th anniversary, once life settles down a bit. SAGE ADVICE: “Always let your wife have the last piece of cheese.”
By Invitation Only If you’d like to see your wedding or commitment ceremony in B.I.O., send your favorite informal photograph (wacky is fine, but please don’t send a formal engagement shot), plus your names and ceremony date to weddings@ wpost.com.

LaToya Fewell, John Rosser IV LaToya, 29, is a coordinator at GW’s nursing school. John, 29, teaches third-grade math and science. They will live in Largo, Md., after they are married. THE MAIN EVENT: They’ll wed May 24 in Camp Springs, Md. HOW THEY MET: At a Singles’ Ministry at his church. It was each one’s first night there. “The plan was to go in, gain insight, speak if spoken to, and head home,” John says. Then LaToya walked in. FIRST DATE: They saw “The Woman in Black.” “We agree it was one of the worst movies we’ve ever seen,” LaToya says. HOW HE PROPOSED: At her mom’s birthday party. He secretly invited (with Mom’s blessing) more family and friends, then popped the question in front of all of them. THEIR SONG: Beyonce’s “Love on Top” “because he loves when I sing it to him.” PET NAMES: She’s “Bazoodaboo,” from a made-up word in The Sims.

“.@TheEllenShowNo Brad Cooper but 3 Clintons & a Kimmel”
— MARIO AGUILAR AT GIZMODO.COM
with Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton at Ellen DeGeneres after he interviewed the Clintons about politics, grandchildren and a possible presidential run (Hillary’s answer: “I’m obviously thinking about all kinds of decisions”) at a conference Saturday. DeGeneres’ Oscar selﬁe — which included Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and a litany of other stars — broke records with 3.4 million retweets.
argues that records are the only worthwhile way to own music in an era where subscription services like Spotify and Rdio make it easy to listen to almost any song you want. Vinyl, he writes, is more intimate and interactive than CDs and “makes the listening experience something in which you are constantly physically and emotionally involved.”

Revealing investigative reports.
“At the time, the offer was 200x what professional golfer Arnold Palmer got for his endorsement with Wilson, and 100x what football star Joe Namath got from his deal with Schick razor.” — ZACHARY CROCKETT AT PRICEONOMICS .COM recounts a time when professional
bowling was a glamorous, lucrative profession. In 1964, Don Carter was paid $1 million (about $7.6 million today) for an endorsement deal —the ﬁrst time an athlete in any sport received that much. “In the ‘golden era’ of the 1960s and 70s, [bowlers] made twice as much money as NFL stars, signed million dollar contracts, and were heralded as international celebrities,” Crockett writes.

“On the first day, God created the navy blue blazer with brass buttons and khakis. And I looked and saw that it was not good.” — ZEKE WINITSKY AT ESQUIRE .COM writes about his frus-
trating search for a fashionable suit for his bar mitzvah. “I have one bar mitzvah, and I was going to look snazzy. So for the occasion, I decided to go all out,” he writes. But the 13-year-old learned that few brands made chic clothes for teen boys, and advised brands to step up their game.

PAR SCORE 155-165, BEST SCORE 234
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have many questions, but the answers may come more slowly than you’d like. You can be more efficient in the asking, perhaps. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may harbor some ill feelings after an encounter that left you doubting yourself. This is not something to let linger. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can do things in a way that demands attention, but is that what you really want? Right now, privacy comes at a price, however. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Certain individuals will seem to know you better than you know yourself, so why not listen to them when they give you advice? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’re likely to display a few old habits, even though you thought you had broken them once and for all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Odd behavior is likely to attract the wrong kind of attention. Take care! Do you really want the authorities to become involved?
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.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Share ideas and explore options. Very soon you’ll realize that what you are thinking is a popular notion with others as well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You can minimize the damage caused by someone who was recently careless with your feelings. Recovery should be swift.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You seem to have the answers that others are looking for, but you may not have all the pertinent information. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Something you’ve tried to keep under wraps for a while is likely to be common knowledge before the day is out. What went wrong? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Money matters will require attention. You’ve been spending a little too much on things you don’t really need right now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are following a path that may actually lead to two separate destinations, but do you know which is really for you?
39 31 Tomorrow: Cold tomorrow with a little snow. A bit of snow tomorrow night.
