Bin Laden Kin Guilty Verdict: Al-Qaeda spokesman conspired to kill Americans
Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, the voice of ﬁery al-Qaeda propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group’s spokesman. The verdict came after about six hours of deliberation over two days in the case against Kuwaiti imam Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda ﬁgure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. In a statement, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said he hoped the verdict brought some measure of comfort to al-Qaeda victims. “He was more than just Osama bin Laden’s propaganda minister,” Bharara said. “Within hours after the devastating 9/11 attacks, Abu Ghaith was using his position in al-Qaeda’s homicidal hierarchy to

persuade others to pledge themselves to al-Qaeda in the cause of murdering more Americans.” Defense attorney Stanley Cohen promised to appeal. Abu Ghaith testiﬁed during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden’s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions. “The storm of airplanes will not stop,” Abu Ghaith warned in an October 2001 video played for the jury. Also shown repeatedly to the
jury during the trial were frames of a video made Sept. 12, 2001, that showed Abu Ghaith seated next to bin Laden and two other top alQaeda leaders as they tried to justify the attacks. Abu Ghaith claimed his role was a religious one aimed at encouraging all Muslims to rise up against their oppressors. Sentencing was set for Sept. 8. The charges — including conspiracy to kill Americans — carry a potential penalty of life in prison. L ARRY NEUMEISTER AND TOM HAYS (AP)

more bodies or anyone who might still be alive. But authorities have acknowledged they might have to leave some victims buried. Trying to recover every corpse would be impractical and dangerous. The debris ﬁeld is about a square mile and 30 to 40 feet deep in places, with a moon-like surface that includes quicksand-like muck, rain-slickened mud and ice. The terrain is difﬁcult to navigate on foot and makes it treacherous or impossible to bring in heavy equipment. Sixteen bodies have been recovered, but authorities believe at least 20 people were killed. With scores still missing, authorities are working off a list of 176 people unaccounted for, though some names were believed to be duplicates. Authorities said that number will change because more people have called in since the nearby logging town of Darrington’s power was restored Tuesday. BRIAN SKOLOFF AND LISA BAUMANN (AP)

Crimea in Dark Without Ukraine
Within days of Crimea being swallowed up by Russia, the lights began ﬂickering out. Off icials in the peninsula accused Ukraine of halving electricity supplies in order to bully Crimea, which voted earlier this month in a referendum to secede and join Russia. “Cutting supplies is an attempt by K iev to black mail Russia through Crimea,” Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov wrote on his Twitter account. Aksyonov’s combative reaction ref lects a sobering reality for Crimea: the strategic peninsula’s overwhelming reliance on electricity and water supplies from mainland Ukraine. The Kiev government, which has been unable to prevent the Russian annexation, still wields a weapon it can use to bargain with its

It cannot afford to be seen hurting ordinary people as it argues that the region remains part of its territory.

sel generators and started drafting plans to connect the region’s electrical grid to mainland Russia, which is separated from Crimea by the Kerch Strait. They said a possible water shortage could be offset by more efﬁcient use of existing resources. Those reassurances have provided little comfort to Filipp Savchenko, the 29-year-old owner of a refrigeration and logistics business in Simferopol, the Crimean capital. “With the help of the generators we have, we were able to survive,” Savchenko said. “But if they turn [the electricity] off in the future or for longer, we won’t be able to cope.” Regardless of the intention behind the recent blackouts, they have underscored Crimea’s dependency on mainland Ukraine. They also highlight its lack of a real contingency plan if Kiev does decide to pull the plug. Still, many of the Crimeans who have supported the Russian annexation remain conﬁdent Russia will come to the rescue if matters get
Meanwhile ... Calling it a global “moment of testing,” President Barack Obama appealed to Europeans on Wednesday to recommit to the war-won ideals of freedom and human dignity, declaring that people voicing those values will ultimately triumph in Ukraine in its struggle with Russia since Crimea voted to secede. “If the Russian leadership stays on its current course, together we will ensure that this isolation deepens,” Obama said.

A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles Spring is ﬁnally here, and the ﬁrst signs of green are sprouting up around the DC region. But here at Metro, we work to be green year-round. As a transit authority, we take pride in our critical role supporting regional sustainability. Every day, Metro takes an estimated 750,000 auto trips off the region’s roadways—reducing fuel consumption, improving air quality and connecting communities. Metro stations and Metrobus routes located throughout the region allow more people to ditch their cars and reduce their environmental footprint. We’re taking steps at Metro to reduce our own emissions and lower our energy consumption too. New Metro facility construction projects and major facility retroﬁts are now LEED-certiﬁed, which means they use less energy and release fewer greenhouse gases. The new Shepherd Parkway Bus Facility and the new Glenmont Garage are two examples of projects that meet this high level of green building standards. We’re also in the process of replacing the lighting at all Metrooperated parking garages with high-efﬁciency lighting systems that will improve visibility and safety, while saving 15,000,000 kWh of energy each year.

New Metrobus service improvements: Is your bus on the list? New Metrobus service changes go into effect this Sunday, March 30, on 35 bus routes throughout the region. In addition, new Route W1 will be added to connect Fort Drum and Congress Heights in the District of Columbia. These latest adjustments are part of Metro’s Better Bus effort to reduce crowding, improve reliability, and make sure bus routes connect riders where they need to go and when they need to get there. To ﬁnd out more, pick up a new timetable aboard the bus, check online at wmata.com/betterbus, or call Metro Customer Service at 202-637-7000.

Van Ness station benefits from Metro Forward Escalator replacements underway at five more stations Red Line riders will now ﬁnd two brand new escalators at Van Ness station, providing a safer and more reliable way in and out of the underground Metro station.
For Metro, investing in sustainability makes good business sense. Just consider the lighting project, which will lower our energy bills by nearly $1.5 million per year. In addition, we’re saving money on fuel and reducing emissions with new, more fuel-efﬁcient buses that are added to the ﬂeet each year. In just eight years, we’ve improved the overall Metrobus fuel efﬁciency by 30 percent.
Improving escalator reliability is a critical component of the Metro Forward rebuilding program. Eleven new escalators have been installed under the program, and more than 100 more are planned in the coming years. In fact, another ﬁve escalator replacement projects are already underway.
Metro customers can help us achieve our goals of keeping the system green and clean. Riders should take advantage of the newspaper recycling bins in all of our Metrorail stations, and reduce litter on the system by obeying the no food and drink regulations.
In addition to the escalator replacements, Metro is also making existing escalators operate like new. These efforts have resulted in some of the highest escalator availability in recent memory. In 2013, escalator availability averaged more than 92%, up 3% from the prior year.
As we integrate sustainability into our core business principles, we remain committed to turning resource challenges into opportunities. Metro’s top priority is delivering safe and reliable service to our customers, and wherever possible we’re looking for ways to do it while improving efﬁciency and sustainability. Next month’s Earth Day celebration is a time to raise awareness of the environment, so on April 22, I encourage everyone to get on a Metro train or bus as the ﬁrst step of their day.
Expect to see new escalators opening soon at Georgia Ave, Columbia Heights, Bethesda, Friendship Heights and Mt Vernon Square stations.
Metro will continue an aggressive rebuilding and maintenance program for its nearly 600 escalators to ensure customers can rely on them.

Metro Mulls Fare Hikes A proposal would raise train prices by an average of 3.5 percent Washington Metro is going to start collecting more money from riders this year, and it may resolve by how much today. On the agenda for discussion by the Metro board’s ﬁnance committee is an option to raise the regular bus fare to $1.75, but instead of raising the cash fare to $2, the amount discussed March 13, the surcharge would be eliminated. Riders using SmarTrip cards or cash would pay the same $1.75 fare. Another option for board consideration is raising the daily parking fee by 10 cents, rather than the originally discussed target of 25 cents. The maximum fare for using the MetroAccess paratransit service could drop from $7 to $6.50, fulﬁlling one of several requests from riders with disabilities. Doing all those things would raise the local governments’ subsidy of Metro by $2.5 million, accord-
Backstory One factor in the fare hike debate is the federal government’s cut in the transit-riding subsidy that took effect at the start of 2014. The monthly subsidy for federal employees dropped from $245 to $125. As a result, the transit staff has cut its forecast of 1 percent growth in rail ridership during the 2015 fiscal year. It now anticipates that rail ridership will not grow at all. The financial effect is a $6 million cut in anticipated revenue from rail riders. (T WP)
ing to the transit staff’s estimate. How to get that back? One idea for board consideration is raising the average Metrorail fare from 3 percent to 3.5 percent. That would generate an additional $3 million in revenue from the riders, the staff estimates. The board members, who represent the jurisdictions served by Metro and the federal government, don’t have to do any of those things when they meet today but the proposal on their agenda suggests a potential compromise between
urban and suburban interests. Riders fall into all sorts of categories, but those in the farther suburbs tend to be long-distance rail riders who park at the Metro lots to begin their commutes. Transit riders who live closer to the region’s center are less likely to park and more likely to take short rail rides. They also are more likely to use the bus. District representatives Tom Downs and Muriel Bowser, a D.C. Council member who is a candidate for the Democratic mayoral nomination in Tuesday’s primary, have been the most outspoken about their desire to protect bus riders. During the board’s March 13 discussion, Catherine Hudgins of Fairfax County noted that many suburban commuters face multiple increases, because their trips may combine parking, a Metrorail trip and a bus ride. While the board can play around with the numbers and percentages on this new list, it still must wind up with a balanced budget for the ﬁscal year that starts in July. That requires additional considerations about what riders are willing to pay. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Animals Found Slain in D.C. Park Goat, chickens and pigeons were found with slashed throats Washington Animal welfare officials are investigating how — and why — the carcasses of six chickens, a pygmy goat and two pigeons with their throats slashed ended up along an isolated path in Rock Creek Park. The animals were found Tuesday afternoon by a person walking along the path in the park in the 3500 block of 17th Street NW, near Piney Branch Parkway. The area sits behind a large apartment complex.
U.S. Park Police and humane society ofﬁcials said the uniform way each of the chickens was killed has led investigators to believe the killings were part of a cult or ritualistic practice. They believe the animals were killed elsewhere and dumped along the path before snow started falling Tuesday morning. Scott Giacoppo, a vice president with the Washington Humane Society, said veterinary pathologists will determine if the animals were treated inhumanely. If so, those involved could face animal cruelty charges, ofﬁcials said. Giacoppo said the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld that the religion of Santeria, which has West African and Caribbean ties, can use animal

sacriﬁces. But he said it “has to be done humanely.” Giacoppo said the animals have to be bled out, and Santeria believers typically “offer up the blood to their gods.” The animals have to be killed,
he said, in an instantaneous manner. “Decapitation is considered humane,” he said, as long as it is done with a “sharp instrument.” “You have to do it in one fell swoop,” he said. “It has to cause instantaneous death. Anything short of that, we can argue, is cruelty, and [we can] prosecute.” Ofﬁcials at the humane society said it is not as rare as one would expect to ﬁnd animals sacriﬁced and dumped. About a year ago, Giacoppo said there was a case that didn’t receive much attention, but involved ofﬁcials ﬁnding “a couple of chickens that had been sacriﬁced” in that same area.

McDonnells Seek Separate Trials
In January, Bob McDonnell and his wife were indicted on corruption charges after a monthslong federal investigation.
with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from Jonnie Williams, the former CEO of dietary supplements maker Star Scientific Inc., in exchange for helping promote his products. They have pleaded not guilty, and a jury trial estimated to last ﬁve weeks is scheduled to begin July 28. McDonnell’s lawyers wrote that Maureen McDonnell “is obviously
the essential link” in prosecutors’ claim that the couple conspired to improperly beneﬁt the company. “If she is not on trial, however, she will testify that her relationship with Mr. McDonnell was strained for a number of reasons, including Mr. McDonnell’s demanding work and travel schedule, and that, far from acting in concert, they had no such agreement and he had no timely knowledge of many of her interactions with Williams,” the motion says. In other motions ﬁled just ahead of a midnight Tuesday deadline, the McDonnells asked U.S. District Judge James Spencer to dismiss all but two of the 14 counts — which would leave only two charges of making false statements — and asked for an exceptionally thorough vetting of potential jurors because of what they say has been one-sided and prejudicial media coverage of the case.

ASTRID RIECKEN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Lawyers for former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife have asked a federal judge to order separate trials in their public corruption case. In motions filed late Tuesday night, defense attorneys said Maureen McDonnell wants to testify on her husband’s behalf but would not do so if she also is on trial. The attorneys also said that in a joint trial, Maureen McDonnell would invoke marital privilege that would prevent the former governor from testifying about their private conversations. “Permitting the government to prosecute this married couple together … will severely constrain Mr. McDonnell’s ability to introduce relevant, admissible and exculpatory evidence at trial,” the former governor’s attorneys wrote in a motion that was supported by Maureen McDonnell in a separate ﬁling. The McDonnells are charged

Timeline July 2007 Social workers visiting
Relisha Rudd’s house find evidence of inadequate food for her and a newborn and think Relisha, now 8, might have been physically abused. No record of removals from the home.
Missed warning signs before D.C. girl disappeared are coming to light
April 2010 Social workers find
evidence of “medical neglect,” a home littered with trash and a failure to follow up on surgery for one of Relisha’s brothers.
Social workers find evidence that children were unsupervised and that one had been thrown to the ground and slapped, causing his lip to split open.
EVELYN HOCKSTEIN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Relisha Rudd’s absences piled up at Payne Elementary School, topping 30 days this year before someone notiﬁed the D.C. Child and Family Service Agency on March 13. But it took an additional six days before the agency followed up. By then, Relisha, 8, was missing. Police believe Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, a janitor at the homeless shelter at the old D.C. General Hospital — where Relisha lived for the past 18 months with her mother and three younger brothers — killed his wife and now has the girl. They are looking for them up and down the East Coast. With the search now into its eighth day with no breaks, Relisha’s difﬁcult past is coming into focus. Guardians, social workers and employees at the subsidized shelter all had extensive contact with Relisha but missed or ignored repeated opportunities to intervene, records show. Even her mother, Shamika Young, who allowed Relisha to be with Tatum, was unclear with school ofﬁcials about the reasons for her daughter’s absences and failed to show up at meetings with school ofﬁcials. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said Wednesday that agencies acted as best they could given the information they had. “To my knowledge, there wasn’t sufﬁcient evidence to have an allegation of abuse or neglect,” Gray said. “It appears to me the agencies involved made responsible actions.” But records show that city agencies had contact with Relisha and her family beginning in 2007, when the girl was 2. The records show instances of physical abuse, ﬁlthy
Shamika Young asks Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, a janitor at the homeless shelter at the old D.C. General Hospital, to take Relisha home with him. It is the last time she sees her daughter. Later that day, Tatum and Relisha are seen at a Holiday Inn Express in Northeast.

living conditions and a lack of food. But social workers did not remove Relisha and her siblings from the home, according to city records. Meanwhile, ofﬁcials at the shelter failed to notice Tatum offering children $20 bills and spending time alone with Relisha, both ﬁreable offenses. More recently, ofﬁcials at Relisha’s school — where 55 of the 260 students this year are homeless — struggled to ﬁgure out why the child had missed nearly six weeks of class, confused by excuses provided by the girl’s relatives, who said Relisha was ill and safely in the care of a “Dr. Tatum.” Ofﬁcials defended their actions Wednesday, saying they ﬂagged the

were marked excused after Tatum told the school Relisha was sick. Only after school staff visited the D.C. shelter to gather more information did they discover that the excuse from the “doctor” was bogus. Meanwhile, the manhunt continues. On Wednesday afternoon, D.C. police returned to the shelter near RFK Stadium to ﬁnd new witnesses. About 30 ofﬁcers looked through trash bins and inside and under cars parked on the lots. Some handed out FBI f liers with pictures of Relisha and Tatum. The reward for information on the two was increased and the FBI ﬁled “unlawful ﬂight to avoid prosecution charges” against Tatum in connection to the murder of his wife. “No one is telling us anything,” said Sheron Woods, 53, who has lived at the shelter for 15 months and was carrying a sign with the missing girl’s picture. “The kids here are asking when is Relisha coming home.” PETER HERMANN, EMMA BROWN AND LYNH BUI (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Relisha is seen at Payne Elementary and tells a teacher she is sick and staying with her grandmother.
A counselor at Payne writes a referral to D.C. Child and Family Service Agency noting that Relisha has missed more than 30 days, but officials say many were excused by her mother for illness, citing a “Dr. Tatum.”
A social worker calls Tatum, who arranges a meeting at the shelter but doesn’t show up. The worker discovers he’s the janitor and that “Ms. Young was unable to account for Relisha’s whereabouts.” D.C. police launch a missing person investigation. At 10:04 p.m., Tatum checks into Room 132 of the Red Roof Inn, and is seen with four people, none of them, police say, is Relisha.
Police find Tatum’s wife shot once in the head at the Red Roof Inn.
Tatum is charged in Prince George’s County, Md., in the death of his wife. The search for Relisha continues. (T WP)

Sweet 16’s Got It All DAVID GOLDMAN (AP)
Most bracket sheets are loaded with red X’s. Still, there is plenty of March Madness ahead in the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16. You want favorites? Three No. 1s — Florida, Arizona, Virginia — are alive. You want underdogs? How about three with double-digit seeds — No. 10 Stanford with 11th-seeded Dayton and Tennessee. You want a rivalry? It’s tough to beat Kentucky-Louisville. Four days, 12 games. It’s regional weekend when the Sweet 16 is cut to the Final Four. Enjoy. JIM O’CONNELL (AP)
Nationals star Bryce Harper argued being called out at first Wednesday.
Harper Gets Ejected in Spring Game Nationals star outfielder Bryce Harper was ejected from a spring training game against the St. Louis Cardinals after being called out at first base Wednesday. Harper led off the fourth inning with a slow roller that second baseman Mark Ellis barehanded and ﬂipped to ﬁrst. The throw appeared to beat Harper and umpire Jeff Gosney called him out. The 21-year-old kept his head down, screaming his displeasure as he passed Gosney on his way to the third-base dugout. Gosney threw out Harper, who didn’t seem to initially realize he’d been ejected. Harper turned in apparent disbelief to argue with Gosney, and Nationals manager Matt Williams joined in. The Nationals lost 3-2 to the Cardinals.

Stanford: The Cardinal are in the round of 16 for the first time since 2008, the last time they were in the tournament. They haven’t given up more than 57 points and they have been great at the free throw line.
Wisconsin: Frank Kaminsky, who had 19 points against Oregon, will be in for quite a test against Baylor’s tall, athletic front line.
Tennessee: The Volunteers have won eight of nine with the only loss to Florida in the SEC tournament. Their frontcourt dismantled Mercer, outrebounding the team that beat Duke 41-19.
Iowa State: The Cyclones were able to overcome the loss of third-leading scorer Georges Niang to a broken foot by beating North Carolina in a game that came down to DeAndre Kane’s driving basket with 1.6 seconds to play.
Michigan: The Wolverines are trying to get back to the national title game where they lost to Louisville. Nik Stauskas led an outside attack that hit 14 3-pointers in a third-round win.
Connecticut: Shabazz Napier has averaged 24.5 points in the two wins that has the Huskies in the Sweet 16 a year after they weren’t eligible for the tournament because of academic sanctions.
Dayton: The Flyers are in the round of 16 for the first time since 1984. They got here with two wins by a total of three points. They have yet to break 60, but they have done enough. Florida: Coach Billy Donovan and the Gators have increased their winning streak to 28 games. This is their fourth straight year in the Sweet 16, the longest current streak. UCLA: The Bruins have won both their games by 17 points and have won five straight and seven of eight, including an upset of Arizona.
Baylor: After stopping Creighton’s Doug McDermott, the Bears won’t be able to focus on one of the Badgers, who have six players averaging from 13.4 points to 7.9 points. Arizona: The Wildcats were impressive on defense in dispatching Gonzaga in the third round and are in the round of 16 for the third time in four years. San Diego State: The Aztecs showed their defensive prowess in a thirdround win over North Dakota State, which had a season-low 44 points. San Diego State lost 69-60 to Arizona in November.
Kentucky: The preseason No. 1 team did what no other team could do this season — beat Wichita State. The WIldcats also have a win over Louisville (73-66 just days after Christmas).
Virginia: The sole team remaining from the ACC played its kind of game — good defense and patient offense — in beating Memphis by 18 points.
Louisville: The Cardinals are in the round of 16 for the third straight year. Coach Rick Pitino is 16-0 in the regional semifinals.
Michigan State: The Spartans’ injuries are a thing of the past and they look like the team that held the No. 1 ranking this season.

Garrett Peck HISTORIAN, BEER SCHOLAR, AUTHOR OF ‘CAPITAL BEER’
It also took this wave of German immigrants to the city, who introduced it to us. Philadelphia was the first city that began brewing lager and it became a major exporter of lager. At some point, all the brewers realized, “We can do this ourselves.” Around 1864, 1865, all the brewers start making it, and it caught on so quickly. People were just nuts about it, because it was such a new thing and it was just the right thing for D.C. summers.
Ever wonder what beer was like in Washington before DC Brau brought brewing back to the Capital in 2011? Grab a pint with local historian Garrett Peck. The beer scholar’s new book, “Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, D.C.,” traces the area’s beer beginnings back to 1770, and explains why, after Prohibition, it took decades for the District to start brewing again.
Why did it take so long for D.C. to embrace craft brewing?
D.C., Alexandria and Arlington had numerous pre-Prohibition breweries. Did you uncover any you didn’t know existed while researching?
People had really shifted their drinking habits toward liquor because liquor was so much more profitable for the bootleggers to bring in. After Prohibition, the ones that survived were the big national brewers, and they had access to the national media markets that emerged after Prohibition. The big national magazines and radio became huge and
What was really cool was finding how many there were during the Civil War. It was boom times for beer. You had all these soldiers coming here and D.C.’s population exploded. A big minor-
ity of the soldiers were German Americans, so the Civil War really becomes this seminal moment in American drinking history because beforehand, Americans largely drank whiskey. Afterward, they drank lager. Before the Civil War, ales were most Washingtonians’ beer of
With [prominent D.C. brewery] Heurich closing in 1956, the local community and culture toward beer essentially petered out. You’ve also got high real estate costs — that’s a big factor. But it was Prohibition that doomed local breweries.
[marketing] cost a lot of money, so these little guys couldn’t compete. In response to all those great Anheuser-Busch and Schlitz advertisements, people who once proudly drank local began drinking Bud. In the book, you note that around the turn of the 20th century, local breweries had the combined capacity to make 1 million barrels of beer a year, but were only producing about 250,000 barrels.
These guys all built these huge breweries to grow into and they never really got to because the temperance movement came along and shut them down. How do those numbers compare to today?
Our two largest brewers are [Alexandria’s] Port City and DC Brau and they are both at 12,000-13,000 barrels … so the two of them together is about 25,000 barrels. Chocolate City is 1,000 barrels, most of the brew pubs are about 1,000. We’re at maybe 12-13 percent the capacity of what the city’s peak was before Prohibition.

FILM RIFFS PARAMOUNT/REGENCY
College-level cheers and high-flying flips make “Bring It On: The Musical” a grueling show for the performers.
Come Sail Away
In “Noah,” out Friday, everyone on the planet tries to board a very exclusive cruise ship. Unfortunately, only one guy and his family have tickets and they’re not giving them up. It’s the kind of movie that floats our boat.
Flippin’ Ridiculous The cast of ‘Bring It On’ flies high — all in the name of cheer Stage In “Bring It On: The Musical,” Azaria Bermudez has only one line (it’s “You suck”) but you’ll certainly remember her. She spends a lot of the show flipping around way, way over the other actors’ heads. The 4-foot-9 Bermudez is a “flyer” in the cheer-saturated show inspired by the 2000 film. While most musicals feature people who are very experienced in, you know, musical theater, “Bring It On” has a few members who were brought on specifically
INDIES & ARTIES
for their cheer experience. Bermudez is one; the show’s cheer captain, Antwan Bethea, is another. Bethea is the understudy for two roles, and a “swing” for four others (an understudy covers speaking roles; a swing, ensemble roles). “Any given night I could be going on for any of those,” Bethea says. His duties as cheer captain, though offstage, may be his most important. “It’s my responsibility to make sure everything is right and safe,” Bethea says. “A lot of the stunts are college-level cheer stunts. That is the most difficult level you can do.” (Bethea cheered for East Carolina University as well as for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats; Bermudez cheered for the University of Hawaii.) While cheer is at the center of
The Story In “Bring It On: The Musical,” Campbell (Nadia Vynnytsky) is the cheer captain and queen bee at Truman High, but redistricting sends her to the more diverse, less well-off Jackson High. To win a cheer championship, Campbell has to convince Danielle (Zuri Washington), the captain of Jackson’s dance troupe, to switch to cheerleading so the school can bring home the trophy. K.P.K.
“Bring It On,” it’s not the same old routine for the show’s college- and pro-level experts. “When you’re preparing for a cheer competition you practice twice, maybe three times a week,
and you compete your routine two or three times a year,” Bethea says. “We do this [show] eight times a week. The level of conditioning and mental stamina we have to have to do this exact same routine every night and make sure we really, really sell that moment is crazy.” Both Bethea and Bermudez cite one moment of the flip-filled show as their favorite. “We have some pretty large guys doing the tosses, and in this one [move] there are four people under [Bermudez] and we toss her as high as we can,” Bethea says. Bermudez agrees: “You can feel the energy from the crowd. Most people are surprised because, ‘Oh, she just flipped a million times in the air!’ ” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS) Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda; Sat., 3 & 8 p.m., $25-$81; 301-581-5100, strathmore.org.

Fri. & Sun. ‘Metropolis’: Some people are really pretentious about silent movies, all “Oh, you haven’t seen ‘Battleship Potemkin’? You must like MOVIES, rather than FILM.” Try to shut them up by seeing “Metropolis.” Fritz Lang directed the 1927 film about an industrial dystopia where the very rich got that way largely by exploiting the poor (it’s sci-fi, as that would NEVER actually happen). And you get to see this great film with live accompaniment, which is how people saw it in the ’20s. Flapper dress optional.

1 ‘Titanic’ Featuring another example of an exclusive ticket, the 1997 blockbuster proved that all that glitters is not gold. Also that some things that glitter are gold, and gold sinks.
2 ‘Cast Away’ Many people build boats as a relaxing hobby. Though most of those people don’t need them to get off the island where they’ve been stranded for years, like Tom Hanks did in 2000, which does up the pressure.
3 ‘The Bounty’ The story of this ship’s famous mutiny got another telling in 1984, with Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins. The crew wants to stay in Tahiti. The captain wants to leave because he hates perfect beaches and pineapple. Also something about “duty.”
4 ‘Das Boot’ This 1981 film takes place entirely on a World War II German U-boat. It’s a gripping action film that also examines the depravity of war. It also convinces you that you should never, ever, ever set foot on a submarine.
5 ‘Overboard’ In this 1987 comedy, Goldie Hawn gets amnesia after falling off her family’s yacht. Plenty of people get amnesia on boats, but it’s usually because of the daiquiris.

Another Kite Bites the Dust Witness the carnage of a Rokkaku battle — or enter the fray yourself
Blossom Kite Festival, Constitution Avenue and 17th Street NW; Sat, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., free; 877-442-5666, nationalcherryblossomfestival.org.
BILL O’LEARY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
The Defending Champ NAME: Kaziah Hall HOMETOWN: Arlington SECRET WEAPON: Mini Marley A master kitebuilder, Hall began making kites in Jamaica as a child. “Back home, I always tried to fly my kites even in the lightest of wind,” he says. That finesse served him well at the 2013 Blossom Kite Festival’s Rokkaku battle, which he won in a very light breeze. Hall credits his win to the kite he made, which bears the image of Bob Marley. (The kite above is actually a different Marley kite, which Hall made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence, in 2012.) Hall plans to fly his winning Marley kite in this year’s battle, but he’s also making a smaller one that he’ll use if the wind is very strong.
The Yankee NAME: Glenn Davison HOMETOWN: Chelmsford, Mass. MOTTO: “If somebody is in trouble, give them some more trouble.” Davison has 10 first-place kite battle wins to his name, including one national championship. A former president of Kites Over New England, Davison has developed a new offensive technique: He hovers above his opponents, which forces them to overextend their rope trying to get away. “They are spooling out their line in defense, and you kind of trap them between rising and the ground,” he says.
The Unknown Quantity TEAM: Midnight Squadron HOMETOWN: Laurel, Md. MOTTO: “We fly at night ’cause we just ain’t right” The codenamed members of this mysterious kite association won third place in last year’s Blossom Rokkaku battle. It was a bittersweet victory, according to “Complex,” the group’s battle master. Among the casualties was Complex’s sock, which was sliced by a fast-moving kite line, and his ankle, which suffered from rope burn. Complex has since recovered and is ready to lead the Midnight Squadron to victory this year. “We’re masters of light wind combat, but getting better at the cutting techniques needed for heavier wind,” he says.
If ever you happen to find yourself in a Japanese kite fight, stay calm! The first kites to eat dirt in a Rokkaku battle are generally piloted by adrenaline-addled newbies on the attack, says veteran flyer Glenn Davison. “You want to stay out of the knitting circle at the beginning, where everyone gets tangled up and they all come down,” he says. You, too, can join the melee: All you need to participate in the 3 p.m. Rokkaku battle during Saturday’s Blossom Kite Festival is a regulation six-sided kite, a plastic line and a solid strategy. (Children don’t need to bring kites or experience to the kids’ battles, starting at 12:30 p.m.) The flashiest way to take down your opponents is to “behead” them. Fly your kite quickly past another, running your line across a single spot on your opponent’s line. That way, their string gets cut, while yours stays intact. “You want to be the knife, and not the butter,” Davison says. A more conservative move is to sneak up below another kite and gently tip it over, causing it to nosedive. The Blossom Kite Festival favors prudence over aggression, awarding just one point for every downed opponent and six points to the last kite aloft. “The best strategy is really just to keep your kite in the air,” says Greg Leber, who flew his first Rokkaku battle at the Blossom Kite Festival last year. Or, just relax and enjoy the show: “Rokkaku is a great spectator sport,” Davison says. Whatever your intentions, here are a few competitors to watch — or watch out for. SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)
The Comeback Kid
NAME: Chuck Holmes TEAM: Charlie Don’t Run HOMETOWN: Spartanburg, S.C. A soft-spoken Southerner, Holmes tied for second place last year by picking off his competition with cool, sniper-like precision. “I look for someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing or someone who is bragging a lot,” he says. In addition to about 50 years of kitebuilding and flying experience, Holmes has a talent for between-heat kite repair. “I’m good at battlefield surgery,” he says.
NAME: Greg Leber TEAM: Dragon Ask HOMETOWN: Easton, Md. Leber isn’t known for being spry, hence his team’s name, which sounds like “dragging ass.” But last year he surprised himself by sprinting to pull his kite out of a death spiral. It was a magnificent save, for about two seconds. “Then I hooked some other guy by accident, and took us both down,” Leber says. “This year I’m going to run less and think more.”
NAME: Banks Griffith TEAM: Run With Scissors HOMETOWN: Spartanburg, S.C. At last year’s battle, Griffith came out swinging. “During the first heat, I took down a couple other kites, and in the process of dragging them down, I damaged my bridle” (the strings that attach the kite to its flying line). With only a few minutes to repair it between heats, the kite never fully recovered. “I’m going to be less aggressive this time,” he says.

THE PRINCE AND MICHAEL JACKSON EXPERIENCE Kilifeu, left, Thiat, right, and Kokayi, front, film the video for Keurgui’s “Nothing to Lose” at Garfield Park in Southeast D.C.
Hip-Hop Full of Hope Senegalese rap group Keurgui Crew finds inspiration in D.C. Music When Thiat and Kilifeu were 17, starting their lives as hip-hop artists in Kaolack, Senegal, they were arrested and beaten for performing a song that spoke out against their mayor. That didn’t shut them up: A decade and a half later, the music of their rap group, Keurgui Crew, helped mobilize one of Senegal’s biggest youth voter turnouts in history for the 2012 presidential election. “Our hip-hop is not for dancing or having a party,” Thiat says. “We create music that gives people hope.” As Keurgui, Thiat and Kilifeu helped found the Y’en a Marre movement (translation: “Fed Up”) with their manager, two journalists and a student in 2011. It became one of Senegal’s most prominent youth movements, mobilizing nearly 350,000 protesters onto the streets of the capital of Dakar. The protesters denounced what they deemed as unconstitutional measures, frequent electricity outages and a lack of government accountability. Since the 2012 election — which saw long-
time incumbent President Abdoulaye Wade ousted — the movement has helped youths engage in Senegal’s social and political spheres. While leading demonstrations and get-out-the-vote campaigns, Keurgui has become one of Senegal’s most celebrated socially conscious hip-hop groups — although many tried to discourage Thiat and Kilifeu at the start of their journey. “My father wanted me to be a banker,” says Thiat, 35. “I spent 10 years without talking to him because he wanted to choose my life path for me, and I decided to choose for myself.” His success as an activist-musician and his vision of a unified Africa inspired Thiat to travel to D.C. last year as a Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellow. Thiat sought to explore how hip-hop could be used to develop democracy throughout the African continent.
“I learned in D.C. that wherever you come from, you have your point of view.” — THIAT, OF KEURGUI CREW, ON HIS TIME SPENT STUDYING AND RECORDING IN WASHINGTON
One idea that emerged was to create a compilation album — due within the next year — featuring West African hip-hop artists rapping about the political and social issues of their respective countries. “I learned in D.C. that wherever you come from, you have your point of view, and your point of view is important,” Thiat says. Keurgui, which raps in Thiat and Kilifeu’s local language of Wolof, ended up recording its forthcoming album “Encyclopedia” at a studio in Northeast D.C. They invited collaborators, like Grammy-nominated D.C. artist Kokayi, to rap in French and English and, in true Keurgui fashion, the record will have political and social messages woven into beats reminiscent of 1990s American hip-hop. Thiat says his passion for advocacy was inspired by his mom. “My mother trained me to become really engaged. She made me happen,” Thiat says. “[I’ve learned] to observe my society, which is like a mirror for me. I look at my society and see myself.” SCOT T SHIGEOK A (FOR E XPRESS)

From left, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat meet at Camp David in 1978.
BOB DAUGHERTY (AP)
Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has spent time at Camp David. Whether for work or play, the secluded grounds in Maryland have long been a cherished locale.
A Household Name In 1939, the Works Progress Administration finished building a retreat for federal employees and their families, Camp Hi-Catoctin, about 60 miles northwest of D.C. FDR was the first president to use it as something of a vacation home, a respite from the stresses of Washington that he called the USS Shangri La. Dwight Eisenhower later changed its name to Camp David in honor of his grandson.
Arena’s ‘Camp David’ lifts the curtain on a monumental summit Stage
A Jew, a Muslim and a devout Christian meet at a camp in rural Maryland. They don’t emerge for 13 days.
It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it’s actually the premise of the play “Camp David,” which had its world premiere at Arena Stage last week. It’s a behindthe-scenes imagining of the 1978 peace negotiations between President Jimmy Carter (played by Emmy winner Richard Thomas), Egyptian President Anwar Sadat (Khaled Nabawy) and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin (Tony winner Ron Rifkin). Famed for its secrecy, the summit gave birth to the Camp David Accords, a treaty that earned Sadat and Begin a shared Nobel Peace Prize and has kept peace between the two Middle Eastern contingents. The story of how “Camp David” came to be starts not with the playwright, Pulitzer Prize-win-
In Arena’s “Camp David,” the trio are portrayed by, from left, Ron Rifkin, Richard Thomas and Khaled Nabawy.
A PEACE OF HISTORY
Margaret Thatcher, left, and Ronald Reagan hang at Camp David in 1984.
Carter Nearly Cuts Camp When Jimmy Carter took office in 1977, he sold the presidential yacht in a largely symbolic act of budget cutting. He nearly sold Camp David, too, before he’d had a chance to visit. By the end of his term, he was thoroughly convinced of its value. The Gipper’s Getaway Ronald Reagan spent more time at the woodsy refuge than any other president: nearly every free weekend, 517 days in total. No Repeat Performance Inspired by Carter’s success with the Camp David Accords, Bill Clinton brought Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak to the camp for peace talks in 2000. Don’t expect any triumphant theater adaptations of this meeting, though — the two-week negotiations fell flat. C.C.
ning author Lawrence Wright, but with a former member of Carter’s administration. Gerald Rafshoon, who attended the negotiations as Carter’s communications director before pursing a career as a television and film producer, sat on the idea for 35 years. “Conflict makes great theater,” Rafshoon says. “Historical conflict makes even better theater, because it really happened … I always thought [the Camp David negotiations] would make a good movie.”
“The Camp David Accords have been called a cold peace. It’s an unloved treaty, and yet it’s actually endured.” — L AW RENCE W RIGHT, “CAMP DAVID’S” PLAYWRIGHT, ON THE HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE 1978 PEACE AGREEMENT
But it’s hard to get a movie made, so after the success of “Frost/ Nixon” on Broadway, Rafshoon decided to pitch the story as a play. He took his concept to Broadway producer Rocco Landesman, who introduced him to Wright, a renowned playwright and New Yorker reporter. “It was one of those ideas that I wished I’d thought of myself,” Wright says. “It was one of the great triumphs of 20th-century diplomacy, and yet I don’t think people know … the drama that was taking place within that gated area, where for 13 days those men thrashed out the most durable peace treaty that has ever come out of that region.” Once Arena Stage signed on as a partner (artistic director Molly Smith says the show is “exactly in the sweet spot of what we do”), Wright approached the play like it was a New Yorker assignment: with heavy research and a determination to do justice to all three men’s perspectives. He and Rafshoon even traveled to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in Israel and Cairo to interview surviving members of the
T H U R S D AY | 0 3 . 2 7. 2 0 1 4 | E X P R E S S | E9
negotiating teams. Rafshoon’s friendship with Carter and first lady Rosalynn Carter proved a crucial asset — he persuaded both to hand over the diaries they kept during those two weeks at Camp David, which offered insights and details that had been hidden away. The history books may list three power players at the Camp David table (Carter, Sadat and Begin) but Smith says that version of the story leaves out a “hidden hero”: the first lady. Rosalynn Carter (played in “Camp David” by Hallie Foote) was a sounding board for the president during the talks. In fact, it was her idea to hold the negotiations at the camp, a peaceful place isolated from the outside world and the prying eyes of the press.
MARVIN JOSEPH (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Director Molly Smith, foreground, producer Gerald Rafshoon, center, and playwright Lawrence Wright brought a journalistic approach to Arena’s “Camp David.”
During Smith’s research, she joined Rafshoon for a weekend with the Carters in Plains, Ga., where they watched the former president teach Sunday school (that day’s topic was, fittingly, Jesus as a peacemaker) and got to know the couple. “As [the play’s] director, I was soaking up their relationship — the way in which they listen to each other, the way in which they respond to each other,” Smith says. “[‘Camp David’] is really an opportunity to delve into a long-term, profound relationship between two people … who’ve known each other since childhood.” The peace agreements that arose from Camp David were never a sure thing — at one point, Carter thought Sadat’s own delegation was going to
assassinate Sadat to block a treaty with Israel — and each party made unpopular concessions for the greater good. Wright hopes his take will add nuance to discussions of Middle East politics. “The Camp David Accords have been called a cold peace,” he says. “It’s an unloved treaty, and yet it’s actually endured. It required compromises on both sides that were painful, but that’s what peacemaking is all about.” For a story that starts like a bad joke, that’s a pretty profound punch line.

A Green Plate Special Restaurants take a break from meat and dairy for occasional all-vegan menus
Ellen Kassoff Gray dreamed of opening a restaurant to serve Washingtonians delicious vegan cuisine. She finally realized that vision — once a week. In the summer of 2012, Kassoff Gray, with her husband chef Todd Gray, decided to offer a monthly, vegan brunch at their Muse Cafe, which is located inside the Corcoran Gallery of Art (500 17th St. NW; 202-639-1786, toddgraysmuse.com). “I was setting out to prove that vegan food is really good,” says Kassoff Gray, who has been a vegetarian or vegan (meaning she does not eat meat, fish, poultry, eggs or dairy) for nearly two decades. Mission accomplished. “We were turning people away because we were taking an entire month of demand and putting it into one day,” says Kassoff Gray, who also owns the restaurants Equinox and Watershed with her husband. So in May 2013, Muse Cafe began serving a vegan brunch every Sunday. Reservations continue to be a must. (Kassoff Gray says if the Corcoran’s new ownership affects Muse, the brunch will move to Equinox or a new location.) “They bring the Equinox standards to the vegan brunch,” says avid Sunday Muse-goer Beth Preiss. “It’s different than just your typical tofu scramble.” Rather than trying to imitate scrambled eggs or sausage, Gray presents a buffet of seasonal, locally sourced dishes. You might find a farro salad with grilled asparagus and pickled ramps in the warmer months, and a roasted chestnut and apple soup in the fall or winter. It’s not just Muse Cafe that’s
EMILY CLACK PHOTOGRAPHY
Barbecued tofu, left, and vegan macaroni and cheese are a few of the options you might find on the rotating menu at Muse Cafe’s weekly vegan brunches.
Fake It to Make It To turn Elizabeth’s on L into a raw, vegan restaurant once a week, owner Elizabeth Petty had to hire a new full-time staff. Executive chef Jonathan Seningen, formerly of Georgetown’s Hook, took over the kitchen in 2012. He trained for a month with raw-food guru Matthew Kenney (matthewkenneycuisine.com) before starting. Seningen uses traditional techniques to transform vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains into nutrient-dense delicacies. For example, he uses his knowledge of how to smoke real bacon (or “bacon-bacon,” as he calls it) to produce a raw, vegan version made from young Thai coconut. He marinates the coconut meat in Nama Shoyu soy sauce, bay leaves, thyme, black pepper, coriander seeds and maple syrup for 12 to 24 hours, then smokes it over hickory for about two and half hours. “It’s the closest thing to smoky, fatty, straightout-of-the-smoker bacon that you can get,” he says of the imitation stuff. “It’s like ridiculous fatty wonderfulness.” T.K.
going a part-time-vegan venue. Across town near Eastern Market, the B Spot (1123 Pennsylvania Ave. SE; 202-546-7186, thebspotdc.com) — an art gallery, juice bar and tea room — offers a vegan jazz brunch the third Sunday of every month. Every Friday night, the Catering Company of Washington turns its event space, Elizabeth’s on L, into a raw, vegan restaurant called Elizabeth’s Gone Raw (1341 L St. NW; 202-347-8349, elizabethsonlstreet .com). (“Raw” food is heated to no more than 118 degrees.) “Most of our diners are omnivores,” says Elizabeth Petty, creator of Elizabeth’s Gone Raw. “I think there’s an element of curiosity. People who come say they had no idea it was going to be this good.” She serves vegans and omnivores alike dishes like eggless, milkless, granola-crusted French toast and mushroom stems trans-

formed into faux scallops served with sprouted quinoa, dill, pink grapefruit and citrus vinaigrette. Petty came up with the concept of an upscale raw, vegan restaurant after she was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, no one’s even touched this yet. It’s really, really new territory.’ ” So new, in fact, that not all chefs appreciate vegan cuisine, Kassoff Gray says. But her husband saw potential. “My ent ire tea m is rea lly psyched to learn about this type of cooking,” Todd Gray says. Now that Kassoff Gray’s mastered the once-a-week vegan thing, she has a new project in mind. “They’ve got [upscale] allvegan restaurants in New York, which is my dream,” she says. “I’m gonna open one of them here.” TR ACY KRULIK (FOR E XPRESS)

ida, Ireland and India. The food at the 120-seat Bidwell, the chef says, “is a mixture of my history.” Hence the lobster taco, the fish and chips and … Swedish meatballs? The last preparation, shaped with pork and beef and draped in a light creme fraiche gravy, pays tribute to Mooney’s mother’s best friend. It wasn’t lust at first sight at Bidwell for this diner. “Crispy” deviled eggs provide proof that frying doesn’t make everything taste better. An apple dessert arrives oddly dry and fruitless. A return visit found more to like, including those tender meatballs and a “sharing bite” of spinach ignited with dried red chilies, “a carryover from Red Sage,” Mooney says. Unevenly cooked roast chicken is bested by its plate mates of braised kale and crisp diced potatoes. My single best memory is of “Gin & Tonic” Verlasso Salmon, fish that’s briefly cured with juniper, coriander and lime zest and poised on a slice of griddled cauliflower. A pool of beurre blanc — fueled with gin rather than the expected white wine — enhances the entree. With its concrete floors and bare wood tables, the window-wrapped Bidwell looks like a lot of other newcomers to the scene. The restaurant’s most interesting design element might be its rooftop vertical aeroponic garden, from which Mooney hopes to collect herbs, chilies, lettuces and more later in the year. (Air and mist, rather than soil, nurture the produce.) A similar source of ingredients graces the roof of Bell Book & Candle, a restaurant the chef co-owns in Manhattan’s West Village. Washington appeals to Mooney because it’s a city he’s familiar with, he says, but also because he wants “to be ahead of the curve” in that part of the District. “I have a lot of stock in the vision” of Union Market, he says.
Verlasso salmon is served with cauliflower and a gin-based sauce beurre blanc.
Plenty of Room For Growth The garden-inspired eats at Bidwell could use a little more work The most ambitious restaurant to date at Union Market takes its name from a 19th-century U.S. Army general and places a chef who has cooked all over the world in its open kitchen.

ERIC GAY (AP)
The 76ers didn’t win a game in February and have yet to win one in March. Their last victory was on Jan. 29 against Boston.
76ers on a Rocky Roll Philly’s one loss away from matching NBA’s longest losing streak NBA They are a loss away from becoming the Philadelphia 26ers. As in, losers of 26 in a row — a skid that would match the longest losing streak in NBA history and leave the 76ers one loss away from holding the record for the four major professional sports. “It’s tough we lose them consecutively, but it’s the NBA,” guard Tony Wroten said. “You play another day.” With another loss today at Houston, the 76ers (15-56) will tie the NBA record of 26 straight losses set by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. The potential record setter is Saturday at home against Detroit.
Skidding to History The 76ers are closing in on setting the longest losing streak in sports history. According to STATS LLC, the longest streaks in the four major sports are held by:
NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers, 26 Dec. 20, 2010-Feb. 9, 2011 NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 26 Sept. 12, 1976-Dec. 4 1977 MLB: Philadelphia Phillies, 23 July 29, 1961-Aug. 20, 1961 NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins, 18 Jan. 13, 2004-Feb. 22, 2004
But the skid comes with a purpose: Finishing ﬁrst. Philadelphia is losing to win the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. The team with the worst record in the NBA has a 25 percent chance of winning the No. 1 overall pick.
But there’s a ﬂaw in the 76ers’ plan: Even with the avalanche of defeats, they still don’t have the worst record in the NBA, Milwaukee does. The Bucks are 13-58 and that puts them in the driver’s seat as they plummet toward the top spot. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said the 76ers will be better off as a result of the losing. “It’s those short-term, real pains for what we hope will be a bunch of long-term gains,” Brown said. “This period of time is not pleasant for any of us. But it’s necessary.” But it’s a hefty price to pay. The 76ers last won on Jan. 29 on former guard Evan Turner’s buzzer-beater at Boston. This week they were called out by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who said the losing streak was “bad for everyone.” DAN GELSTON (AP)
Two More NFL Playoff Teams? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says it’s possible the playoffs could expand next season. Goodell said Wednesday at the spring meetings that “it’s not out of the question.” He says he “wouldn’t rule it out, but I wouldn’t say that’s the direction we’re heading.” The owners discussed adding two playoff teams to the current 12, one in each conference. The topic is certain to come up when Goodell meets with the players union April 8, and again at the owners’ May meeting in Atlanta. (AP)

Historic Ruling on Unions Federal agency says Northwestern players qualify as employees

In a stunning ruling that has the potential to revolutionize college athletics, a federal agency said Wednesday that football players at Northwestern University can create the nation’s first college athlete’s union. The decision by a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board means it agrees football players at the Big Ten school qualify as employees under federal law and therefore can legally unionize. The Evanston, Ill.-based university argued college athletes, as students, don’t ﬁt in the same category as factory workers, truck drivers and other unionized workers. The school plans to appeal to labor authorities in Washington, D.C. Outgoing Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter took a leading role in establishing the College Athletes Players Association, or CAPA, which would take the lead in organizing the players. The United Steelworkers union has been foot-

ing the legal bills. Colter, whose eligibility has been exhausted and who has entered the NFL draft, said nearly all of the 85 scholarship players on the Wildcats roster backed the union bid, though only he expressed his support publicly. The NCA A has been under increasing scrutiny over its amateurism rules and is fighting a class-action federal lawsuit by former players seeking a cut of the bil-
lions of dollars earned from live broadcasts, memorabilia sales and video games. Other lawsuits allege the NCAA failed to protect players from debilitating head injuries. CAPA’s speciﬁc goals include guaranteeing coverage of sportsrelated medical expenses for current and former players, ensuring better procedures to reduce head injuries and potentially letting players pursue commercial sponsorships.

Navy Running Back Dies at Age 19 College Football Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma. He was 19. The academy says the freshman running back from Knoxville, Tenn., died at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Tuesday with his family by his side. “We are all so very heartbroken by the death of Midshipman Will McKamey,” Naval Academy Superintendent VADM Mike Miller said in a statement. “This
is devastating news for his family, his classmates, his teammates and the entire Naval Academy family. We offer our deepest condolences to Will’s family, friends and shipmates in the wake of this tragedy.” He collapsed du r i n g s pr i n g practice Saturday McKamey and was airlifted to the Shock Trauma Center. Earlier this week, McKamey’s family said in a statement released through the school that their son did not sustain “a bad hit or unusual or
extreme contact” in that practice. “The Navy coaches have poured through the ﬁlms of practice and seen nothing more than Will carrying the football normally, doing what he truly loves,” the family said. McKamey played for his father, Randy, and ran for more than 2,000 yards as a senior at Grace Christian Academy in Knoxville in 2012. He suffered a head injury during a game late in the season that caused him to be hospitalized. His family said he had been cleared to resume playing football after seeing four neurosurgeons and undergoing several CAT scans and MRI exams. (AP)

What’s in a Legal Term? Gwyneth Paltrow calls her divorce from Chris Martin ‘a conscious uncoupling’ 27
He’s Back in the Game
Just Shoot Me “The Good Wife” killed lawyer Will Gardner, above, because actor Josh Charles, the show’s male lead, wanted out. Fans are aghast. Could the show have found another way? Vanishing: Christopher Abbott of “Girls” disliked his character Charlie (smug app inventor and Marnie’s amour) and quit after Season 2. Solution: He dumped Marnie, went broke and left town before the third season. It’s a win-win: Marnie gets a new boyfriend; Charlie could return if Abbott needs work. By Marc Switcheroo: Back Silver pain made Dick York quit as Darrin, spouse of “Bewitched” witch Samantha. New Darrin is Dick Sargent. Samantha seems oblivious! On “Bette,” dumpy Kevin Dunn resigned as Bette Midler’s husband due to his shrinking role. Bette mulls the recasting of soap opera roles and asks her hubbie, who’s rummaging in the fridge: “Do they think we as viewers are so stupid not to notice?” Handsome Robert Hays emerges, replies: “What’d you say honey?” Digitized: Nancy Marchand, aka Tony Soprano’s mom, actually did die. “The Sopranos” revived her for 90 seconds of closure, digitally pasting her head on a body double. Maybe “The Good Wife” made the right call. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
After a break, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film career returns to full swing with ‘Sabotage’
Agents on the Run “Sabotage,” out Friday, stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as John Wharton, the leader of a DEA special operations team. After $10 million in drug money goes missing and members of the squad fall victim to deadly attacks, Wharton must scramble to find the culprit. “Sabotage” also stars Sam Worthington, Josh Holloway and Terrence Howard. (E XPRESS)
Q&A Three years after returning to acting, Republican and two-term California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he won’t be running for anything. Though last year’s “Escape Plan” and “The Last Stand” failed at the box office, the 66-year-old actor is committed to his Hollywood comeback. He’ll be in this summer’s “The Expendables 3,” he’s set to return to his cyborg assassin character in a new “Terminator” ﬁlm, and he may make a sequel to his 1988 comedy “Twins.” Schwarzenegger talked recently about his relationship with politics, going dark for his character in “Sabotage,” and the importance of making hit movies.
I have an assistant who will block all phone calls so that I can work and really focus on the film. … I can multitask very well. But I know exactly when to block off anything coming in from the outside and just stay focused on the film. Have you ever played this dark before?
Can you see yourself running for elected ofﬁce again?
No. I have no interest in running for anything. I’ve done that. I never wanted to be a career politician. I always am interested just to take on challenges that everyone says are impossible to do and to take it on. Right now I’m back into acting. I said ‘I’ll be back’ and I’m back. And that’s what I love to do. You shot this movie about a year after leaving ofﬁce. When you’re on set, how much are you still dealing with politics?
FREDERICK M. BROWN (GETTY IMAGES)
“I always am interested just to take on challenges that everyone says are impossible. … Right now I’m back into acting. I said ‘I’ll be back’ and I’m back.”
No. I don’t remember ever doing any role that was … as dark as this character was. I mean, in “End of Days” I think I played a little bit of a dark character but I think this one was by far the darkest and also the most complex character, with his own faults and his own twisted way of thinking. Are we doing enough with what’s going on with Russia and Crimea?
I think what they all need now is to just stop whatever they’re doing and watch the movie “Sabotage.” RYAN PEARSON (AP)
Facing Some ‘True’ Competition: Despite its 8-episode run and anthologized storyline, HBO will submit “True Detective” as a drama series rather than a miniseries for Emmy consideration, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Competing as a drama would pit the show against critically acclaimed series “Breaking Bad,” “Mad Men” and “House of Cards.” “Detective’s” advantage is its star, recent Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, left.

Obnox, “Louder Space” No one in this world is making rock ’n’ roll as singular as Obnox frontman Lamont “Bim” Thomas because no one in this world is abusing an electric guitar at hip-hop tempos while singing about sex, drugs,
the death of Whitney Houston and the end of the world in Cleveland circa 2014. Listen to this man. The War on Drugs, “Lost in the Dream” On his third album as the War on Drugs, Adam Granduciel sounds like a man trying to play “Dancing in the Dark” while falling asleep, or maybe “Sultans of Swing” while waking up. It quickly begins to feel like it might go on forever, which is totally fine because you’ll probably want it to.

YG, “My Krazy Life” The Compton, Calif., rapper, below, starts his fantastic debut album by puffing out his chest. He peaks about halfway through while giving a home robbery tutorial.

It’s been a busy time in the world of music, with enough new albums to fill a dozen mixtapes. Here’s a selection of notable new country, hip-hop and indie recordings we heard in March. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Don’t let the masks scare you away from dance duo Dengue Dengue Dengue!
liberate us from it? This Peruvian duo squeezes that question out on its new EP, six tracks of psychedelic cumbia capable of loosening ligaments and opening third eyes. Evian Christ, “Waterfall” After stirring some of his brash aesthetic into the cauldron of Kanye West’s “Yeezus” album, the young U.K. producer is back to making hip-hop
instrumentals out of e-cig vapor, Windex squeaks and earthquakes. Stone Jack Jones, “Ancestor” In country music, there are many sad songs and not enough bleak ones. This Nashville, Tenn., outsider takes some gutsy steps toward the latter, as if scoring a Cormac McCarthy novel. Halfway through this album he sings, “Joy’s a-coming.” Don’t believe him.
‘Surviving Jack’ (FOX) “Law and Order’s” Christopher Meloni, above right, is the Jack of this new sitcom’s title, an ex-military man who becomes a stay-at-home dad when his wife (Rachael Harris) goes to law school. Connor Buckley, above left, and Claudia Lee play the couple’s children.
‘Vikings’ (HIST) Lagertha and Ragnar join forces to win Kattegat back from Jarl Borg. As Aslaug realizes she must face the truth of her prophecies, Athelstan struggles with his faith. Bjorn has another difficult decision to make. (TRIBUNE MEDIA)
