Convict Fell Through the Cracks Colo. suspect took off ankle bracelet days before killing Denver The ex-convict suspected in the killing of Colorado’s prison chief slipped off his electronic monitoring bracelet and escaped before anyone noticed he was missing — all after he was mistakenly released from prison four years early. A corrections computer system recorded that Evan Spencer Ebel’s bracelet stopped working on March 14, according to documents released Tuesday. Ofﬁcers learned he had ﬂed on March 19,
NRA-Backed Report: Arm School Officers
From Model Parolee to Killer? Evan Spencer Ebel, who died after a March 21 shootout with Texas deputies, had been a model parolee until his electronic monitoring bracelet stopped working. His father provided him housing and a job, but on March 14 a “tamper alert” showed the bracelet had stopped working. Two days later, corrections officials called Ebel and told him to come in to repair the bracelet. He did not show up. On March 17, Nathan Leon, a father of three and Domino’s delivery man, was shot to death. Ebel is suspected in the killing. It was not until March 18 that parole officers spoke to Ebel’s father, who told them he feared his son had fled. On March 19, Tom Clements was shot. Ebel is suspected in that killing too. (AP)
the day Tom Clements, the director of Colorado’s department of corrections, was fatally shot. The detail is the latest example of how Ebel fell through the
cracks of the criminal justice system in the years before his January release. On Monday, court ofﬁcials acknowledged that a clerical error allowed Ebel to leave prison four
years early because his most recent felony conviction was incorrectly recorded on his record. “We have to do better,” said Tim Hand, director of the Department of Corrections’ parole division. Ebel, who died in a shootout with Texas deputies on March 21, had been ﬂagged as a high-risk parolee and went straight from solitary conﬁnement back out onto the streets in late January. Parole ofﬁcials said Ebel complied with all the terms of his parole until his bracelet broke. “We had an individual who was calling in every day, who was employed, who showed no indication that he would do the kind of things that we now know” he did, Hand said.

Schools across the nation should train selected staff members to carry weapons and should each have at least one armed security officer to make students safer and allow a quicker response to an attack, the director of a National Rifle Association-sponsored study said Tuesday. Republican former Rep. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas made the remarks as a task force he headed released its report, which also maps out a 40- to 60-hour training program for school staff members who are qualiﬁed and can pass background checks. “The presence of an armed security personnel in a school adds a layer of security and diminishes the response time that is beneﬁcial to the overall security,” Hutchinson said.

N. Korea to Restart Nuke Reactor Seoul, S. Korea North Korea said Tuesday it will restart its long-shuttered plutonium reactor and increase production of nuclear weapons material, in what outsiders see as its latest attempt to extract U.S. concessions by raising fears of war. A spokesman for the North’s General Department of Atomic Energy said scientists will quickly begin “readjusting and restarting” the facilities at its main Nyongbyon nuclear complex, including
the plutonium reactor and a uranium enrichment plant. Both could produce fuel for nuclear weapons. The reactor began operations in 1986 but was shut down as part of nuclear disarmament talks in 2007 that have since stalled. North Korea said work to restart the facilities would begin “without delay.” Experts estimate it could take anywhere from three months to a year to reactivate the reactor. The nuclear vows and a rising tide of threats in recent weeks are seen as efforts by the North to force disarmament-for-aid talks with Washington and to increase domestic loyalty to young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by portraying him as a powerful military leader.
Historic U.N. Treaty Aims To Regulate Arms Trade United Nations The U.N. General Assembly voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to create the first international treaty regulating the global arms trade, a landmark decision that imposes new constraints on the sale of conventional arms to governments and groups that commit war crimes, genocide and other mass atrocities. The U.N. vote was hailed by arms-control advocates and scores of governments as a major step in the global effort to enforce basic controls on the $70 billion international arms trade. But it was denounced by Iran, North Korea and Syria for imposing restrictions that prevent smaller states from buying and selling weapons to ensure their self-defense. “This is an historic day and a major achievement for the United Nations,” said British Foreign Secretary William Hague, whose country helped spearhead the campaign. The treaty covers a wide range of conventional weapons, including tanks, combat aircraft, attack heli-
Acts of Aggression North Korea conducted its third nuclear test in February, prompting U.N. sanctions that infuriated its leaders. It has since declared that the armistice ending the Korean War in 1953 is void, cut communication with Seoul, threatened nuclear strikes on the U.S. and, most recently, declared that making nuclear arms and developing its economy are the nation’s top priorities. (AP)
Tuesday ’s a n nou ncement underscores concerns about North Korea’s timetable for building a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the U.S., though it is still
believed to be years away from developing that technology. The U.S. called for North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions, saying it would be “extremely alarming” if Pyongyang follows through on a vow to restart its plutonium reactor. China, North Korea’s only major supporter, expressed unusual disappointment. “We noticed North Korea’s statement, which we think is regrettable,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said. U.

Never before has there been an international treaty regulating the global arms trade.

What impact it will have remains to be seen. The treaty will take effect after 50 countries ratify it, and a lot will depend on which ones ratify it and how stringently it is implemented. (AP)

Boycott Tough to Crack Iranians angry over rising inﬂation spurn beloved pistachios Tehran, Iran This should be the time of year that nut shop owner Mohammad Ahmadi counts his profits — after the recent Persian new year holiday when Iranians scarf up huge amounts of their iconic snack, pistachios. Instead, he and others are staring at piles of unsold nuts. Iranians have rebelled against a nut that is as linked to their national identity as apple pie is to America’s or feta cheese to Greece’s. A Facebook-driven boycott of pistachios has taken off, protesting prices that more than doubled in recent months. “The number of customers has dropped terribly,” Ahmadi said. The beloved pistachio has become another casualty of Iran’s sanctions-battered economy. The embracing of the boycott reﬂects the public dismay over inﬂation now at 30 percent, ahead of the June presidential vote to pick a successor for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Shopkeepers in Tehran, Iran, have struggled to sell their pistachios amid a boycott.

Yet, the government, which usually tries to contain Iranians’ anger over the economy, has heartily backed the pistachio boycott — again for reasons tied to the Western-led sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program. Pistachio exports provide a small but important pipeline for foreign revenues at a time when
sanctions are squeezing Iran’s oil and gas sales. Authorities say fewer nuts consumed at home means more available to sell abroad. But at home, Iranians are fuming over the cost of their national snack. Pistachio prices have soared from about $8 for a kilo, or 2.2 pounds, last year to more than $17. In some areas, a kilo has reached about $25, according to news reports. “I will not buy any nut this year,” Leila Alipour, a housewife in Tehran, said. “It is too expensive.” The exact cause for the rapid rise in prices remains somewhat unclear.

Gaza: No Gender Mixing at Schools Gaza City, Gaza Strip Starting with the new school year in September, Gaza boys and girls in middle and high school will be breaking the law if they study side by side. Gaza’s Islamic militant Hamas rulers argue that the legislation, mandating gender separation in schools from age 9, enshrines common practice. But women’s activists warned Tuesday that it’s another step in the Hamas agenda of imposing its fundamentalist world view on Gaza’s 1.7 million people. Hamas activists, including teachers, have also exerted pressure to get all school girls to wear Islamic dress.
Backstory Hamas has been running Gaza since its violent takeover of the crowded coastal territory in 2007. While the group advocates the establishment of an Islamic state in all of the Mideast, including Israel, it has moved cautiously in spreading its ultra-conservative version of Islam. (AP)
The Gaza rules appear harsh compared to Western practice but are not unusual in parts of the Arab and Muslim world. In Iraq, for example, boys and girls are required by law to study separately after age 12. (AP)

County ofﬁcials are evaluating potential ﬁxes suggested by the consultants, KCE Structural Engineers. The county has yet to say what the repairs might cost. The $7.5 million is only the latest in a series of cost overruns that have totaled about $40 million since 2008. These include the unanticipated cleanup of hazardous materials on the construction site, relocation of water and power lines, and problems drilling through bedrock to install foundation caissons.

Put a Lid on It While Riding I got to work Monday, after riding bus and rail, and found that my right pants-leg was splashed with coffee. I don’t know when it happened, but I’d just like to remind Metro passengers that you need a complete, solid lid on your beverages. Now, I know you all hate seeing people eating or drinking on Metro. When travelers often complain about one another’s behavior, that pet peeve is at or near the top. But I ﬁgure our commenter just described a pretty common situation for drivers as well as transit riders: spilling breakfast on your work clothes.
A big part of the reason people drink and eat on the Metro and buses is that they are not regular riders, and the prohibition signs are posted in only one place. I’ve talked to many tourists who simply didn’t know the rules and were not deliberately disobeying them. Metro needs bigger signs in more places, which will save money because cleanup costs will be decreased. I’ve been seeing a lot of this during cherry blossom season. As someone who lives out in the Montgomery
Dr. Gridlock offers commuter counseling online at washingtonpost.com.
County suburbs, I take the train from Glenmont and sometimes Shady Grove stations. I would like to know why the platform signs at these stations don’t tell us whether the trains are six-car or eight-car. Some of us need to get in a certain car to ensure that we are lined up to make a quick transfer or get on the right escalator. I think you’re describing the common problem with the NextTrain information at the end of the line stations and the turnback stations. The little computer brain behind this now-outdated platform information system can’t handle information about trains that are off the main line tracks.
While I think it is a good idea in case of crime, is Metro also going to use the onboard cameras to check if I am drinking coffee on the train? I think they probably won’t hunt you down for that. Only three Metro stations allow long-term parking. At the others, what happens if your car is still in the parking lot when the station closes? Does the car get ticketed? Towed? If a driver left a car overnight during the week at a station other than one of the three designated for long-term parking, it’s possible the car could be ticketed, but I think it’s very unlikely. You would increase the chances by parking in one of the reserved spots or at a meter.

Cover Story Media Matters With interviews, the president can choose his timing, questioners and format, in hopes of delivering a certain message in a setting that’s not always hardhitting. In impromptu Q-and-A’s, questions from the national press corps fly about anything and everything — and these wide-open opportunities to challenge the president on the events of the day have become increasingly rare. Even in regional interviews, though, President Barack Obama can and does get asked about breaking or embarrassing news of the day. (AP)
PETE SOUZA/WHITE HOUSE
Talking Points: Obama Vs. Bush
The White House is increasingly self-publishing such images as this young Spider-Man’s visit on Oct. 26. The photo became an online sensation.
Image Control The Obama administration rolls out its message while restricting press access Washington A photo released on Election Day 2012 of the Obamas hugging has become the world’s most popular tweet on Twitter. A dressed-up version of Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech, packed with charts and graphs, is huge on YouTube. A playful picture of the president cavorting with a 3-year-old in a Spider-Man costume is a favorite online. It’s all courtesy of the Obama image machine, serving up a stream of words, photos and videos that invariably cast the president as commanding, compassionate and on the ball. In this world, Obama’s family is always photogenic, first dog Bo is always well-behaved, and the vegetables in the South Lawn kitchen garden always seem succulent. You’ll have to look elsewhere for
bloopers, bobbles or contrary viewpoints. Capitalizing on the possibilities of the digital age, the Obama White House is generating its own content like no president before and reﬁning its media strategies in the second term in hopes of telling a more compelling story than in the ﬁrst. At the same time, it is limiting press access in ways that past administrations wouldn’t have dared, and the president is answering to the public in more controlled settings than his
predecessors. It’s raising new questions about what’s lost when the White House tries to make an end run around the media, functioning, in effect, as its own news agency. Mike McCurry, who served as press secretary to President Bill Clinton, sees an inclination by the Obama White House to “self-publish,” coupled with tactics “I never would have dreamed of in terms of restricting access” for independent news organizations. “What gets lost are those revealing moments when the president’s held accountable by the representatives of the public who are there in the form of the media,” McCurry says.
“Some of you have said that I’m ignoring the Washington press corps, that we’re too controlling. You know what, you were right. I was wrong and I want to apologize — in a video you can watch exclusively at Whitehouse.gov.” — PRE SIDENT BA R ACK OBA M A , DURING LAST MONTH’S ANNUAL GRIDIRON DINNER, WHERE POLITICAL LEADERS, JOURNALISTS AND MEDIA EXECUTIVES POKE FUN AT ONE ANOTHER

The White House rejects the notion that it is turning to new media it can control at the expense of the old, instead describing an all-of-the-above strategy. “From press conferences to interviews with national, regional and constituency press, to new social media platforms, we have worked to both expand the scope of communication and also deepen the level of engagement between the American people and the work of the White House,” says Jamie Smith, deputy press secretary. The will for presidents to get their story out without media intervention has always been there. What’s different now, says Mark Jurkowitz of the Pew Research Project for Excellence in Journalism, is new technology that allows the White House to distribute its own content far more widely and effectively than in the past. At the same time, it’s getting harder for cash-strapped news outlets to resist using photos, video and other content supplied by the White House. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center, says the White House-generated content can be highly seductive, particularly when people feel they’re developing a “direct relationship” with White House ofﬁcials who send out chatty mass emails and solicit feedback through social media. Obama’s strategy is part of a broader mass communications trend in which politicians, corporate leaders and others in public life are using digital tools to send their messages directly to the public without a media ﬁlter. “It’s all about control,” says image consultant Eric Dezenhall. Obama’s communications strategy works well for him, Dezenhall says, but sometimes at the expense of the “rowdy, boisterous scrutiny that the free press is based on.” NANCY BENAC (AP)

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos played in only 25 games last season after he tore his ACL in a game against the Cincinnati Reds in May.
Back in the Swing of Things Ramos now healthy after an injury ended his 2012 season early Nationals Being back on a baseball diamond has been a blessing for Wilson Ramos. After all, the past two years have been surreal for Washington’s catcher. In 2011, when returning to his native country of Venezuela to play baseball during the offseason, Ramos was abducted at gunpoint and kidnapped for two days before authorities rescued him. Against Cincinnati on May 12, 2012, Ramos turned around to chase a passed ball when his right knee buckled. An MRI later conﬁrmed Ramos tore his ACL. Through the adversity, Ramos never wavered. He was determined to return for this year’s opener against Miami. While warming up in the bullpen prior to the Nationals’
Ramos Has Struggled to Stay on the Field Since being traded to the Nationals in July 2010, catcher Wilson Ramos has played in just 154 games. Here are his stats with the club:
Games played: 15 Batting average: .267 Home runs: 1 RBIs: 4 Caught stealing: 14%
Games played: 113 Batting average: .267 Home runs: 15 RBIs: 52 Caught stealing: 32%
Games played: 25 Batting average: .265 Home runs: 3 RBIs: 10 Caught stealing: 17%
2-0 win Monday, Ramos admitted he shed some tears. He was ﬁnally back. “I feel like [Monday], that was my ﬁrst game in the big leagues,” he said. “I had a lot of work to do this year.” Ramos, 24, was told he’d start on opening day before Washington’s ﬁnal exhibition against the New York Yankees last Friday. Manager Davey Johnson called Ramos to his side during batting practice and gave him the news. “It was a big, big moment for me,” said Ramos, who is still
expected to rotate games at catcher with Kurt Suzuki. Though he wasn’t always in the clubhouse on game days last season, Ramos spent a lot of time preparing for Monday’s moment. “Any time I went down to the weight room or training room he was always in there doing something, whether it be rehab or lifting,” pitcher Ross Detwiler said. During the offseason, Ramos pledged to the training staff that he’d trim down to 235 pounds. Shortstop Ian Desmond was on hand when Ramos stepped on the
scale for his ﬁnal weigh-in. Sure enough, Ramos reached his goal. “This is the ﬁrst time he’s had an offseason to work out, get his body in shape,” Desmond said. “It’s up to us now to hold him accountable to that, to continue to work and not get complacent, so he can be this player we need throughout the season.” Ramos went 1-for-2 and called a great game with Stephen Strasburg on the mound Monday. “He is a big target,” said Strasburg, who threw 80 pitches in seven scoreless innings. “Receives really well. Once we get on the same page, it’s just like autopilot. Don’t go out there and overanalyze it or overthink. Just throw the pitch.” It’s been a long time since Ramos could focus solely on playing the game he loves. With his right knee healed, he’s his former self again. “I’m full strength right now,” Ramos said. “It feels 100 percent. That’s the most important thing.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Sports Griner Named to a 3rd AP All-America Team
The Orioles’ Nick Markakis high-fives teammate Brian Roberts after both scored on a double by Adam Jones on Tuesday.
O’s Open Up Lead in 7th Baltimore powers past Rays in its 1st game of the season Baseball Adam Jones keyed a seventh-inning rally with a two-run, go-ahead double and Chris Davis followed with a three-run homer Tuesday to help the Baltimore Orioles open the season with a 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Matt Wieters homered early off AL Cy Young Award winner David Price. Wieters later drew an intentional walk from reliever Jake
McGee (0-1) before Davis’ towering shot over the right-ﬁeld wall broke open the game and silenced a sellout crowd of 34,078 at Tropicana Field. Jason Hammel (1-0) allowed three runs and three hits in six innings. Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth for a save. Despite giving up a two-run homer to Wieters in the ﬁrst inning and not being particularly sharp in his second career opening-day start, Price departed with a 3-2 lead after the Rays scored twice in the sixth. Ben Zobrist hit a solo homer for Tampa Bay in the fourth, then put his team ahead with a sacriﬁce ﬂy in the sixth. Desmond Jennings
drove in the Rays’ other run with a sixth-inning double. Orioles manager Buck Showalter turned the game over to his bullpen after the ﬁve-run seventh. Darren O’Day allowed an unearned run in the eighth before Johnson, last year’s major league saves leader, ﬁnished the combined six-hitter. Both teams enter the season with expectations of contending for the AL East title. The Rays have won at least 90 games four of the past ﬁve years, while the Orioles stopped a stretch of 14 consecutive losing seasons by winning 93 games and making the playoffs last year.

Brittney Griner has been in a class by herself all season. Now she’s part of a select group. Baylor’s 6-foot-8 star senior was a unanimous selection to the Associated Press’ All-America team Tuesday. Griner became the ﬁfth threetime AP All-American, joining Tennessee’s Chamique Holdsclaw, Duke’s Alana Beard, Oklahoma’s Courtney Paris and Connecticut’s Maya Moore. Paris and Moore were the only two to earn the honor all four years. “That’s pretty special company,” Griner said. She was joined on the squad by Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins, Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike, Delaware’s Elena Delle Donne and Baylor teammate Odyssey Sims. With Sims and Griner, it marked the sixth time that teammates were ﬁrst team All-Americans. Connecticut has done it four times and Tennessee once. “I think they’re two of the

best, period,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. It’s hard to argue. Griner was unstoppable nearly all season, averaging 23.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5.2 blocks. She also had 11 dunks, including three in one game against Florida State in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Griner and Diggins received 200 points and were unanimous choices by the 40-member national media panel that votes in the weekly top 25. DOUG FEINBERG (AP)
Ware Reunites With Louisville Teammates
The Boston Bruins have acquired Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars, hoping the 10th-leading goal scorer in NHL history can improve their shaky offense. Jagr, who leads the Stars in points this season, was traded Tuesday for two prospects, forwards Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne, and a conditional second-round pick in this year’s draft. The deal came ﬁve days after the
Jaromir Jagr led the Stars in points (26) this year before being traded Tuesday.
Bruins thought they obtained forward Jarome Iginla from the Calgary Flames, only to learn Iginla had been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins. In his first season with the Stars, the 41-year-old Jagr has 14 goals and 26 points. Brad Marchand leads the Bruins with 14 goals and Patrice Bergeron is ﬁrst with 31 points. Jagr has 679 career goals. Jagr also has six power-play goals, twice as many as Bruins leaders Marchand and Tyler Seguin. (AP)

Look for Rudi in the crowd of Ansari’s “Dangerously Delicious” on Netflix.
Aziz Ansari has been doing interviews lately about dating rituals, turning 30 and how scared he is to have kids. Those are also some of the subjects covered in his current tour and future stand-up special, “Buried Alive,” which brought him to Constitution Hall last weekend. In a recent Washington Post story, Ansari says there are “two kinds of laughs. One is that funny ‘ha-ha’ laugh.” The other is “where someone will laugh and they’ll also be like: ‘Oh my God, thank you for saying that! I went through the same By Rudi thing.’” Greenberg While “Buried Alive” features deeper laughs, it also exposes the challenge Ansari faces as he moves past the easy, pop culture-referencing jokes that made him famous. When Ansari talked about how online dating is a much more effective method of meeting someone than going to a bar, or how arranged marriages tend to yield stronger relationships, he was tackling social issues in the way Louis C.K. does. In contrast, an early bit on the juxtaposition between MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” and “My Super Sweet 16” seemed trite. “Buried Alive” is a very funny and well-constructed hour, but it shows just how much better of a comedian Ansari is when he’s making you think in between all the laughter.
Two Ways to Laugh
From left, siblings Reid Perry, Kimberly Perry and Neil Perry remake country on “Pioneer.” Brad Paisley, right, challenges listeners with affectionate nudges on “Wheelhouse.”
Country’s New Tradition The Band Perry and Brad Paisley push the genre’s boundaries on their newest albums Music In an age of milquetoast, pickuptruck-obsessed himbos, Brad Paisley is one of the few country artists to regularly wrestle with race and class, and what happens when those issues intersect with some of Southern culture’s darker impulses. He’s almost certainly the genre’s only superstar to take pride in telling his audience things they don’t want to hear. But country fans can be hidebound and criticism-averse, so Paisley’s observations usually come in the form of affectionate nudges and not sharp elbows. “Wheelhouse” (out next Tuesday) opens with “Southern Comfort Zone,” a gentle takedown of Southern insularity. “Not every-

body owns a gun / … Not everybody goes to church/ Or watches every NASCAR race,” observes Paisley, who sounds as if he can’t believe it, either. Paisley swaddles any would-be controversial tracks in choir-preaching love songs and shaggy, honkytonk ramblers. He worries about the boundaries between what he wants to say and what he can say; so he picks at the division between himself and his audience like a wound. On its second full-length album, “Pioneer” (out this week), The Band
Perry acts as if those boundaries don’t exist at all. The trio — two brothers and a sister, whose selftitled 2010 debut was a platinumplus behemoth — appreciates bluegrass, shiny choruses and Queen, and sees no reason why those inﬂuences can’t peacefully coexist. While Paisley cloaks his cosmopolitan musings on nationalism and multiculturalism in traditional country clothing, The Band Perry dresses up traditional country sentiments in the cosmopolitan trap-

pings of glam rock and emo-pop. Yet “Pioneer” never seems like anything less than traditional country, no matter how far aﬁeld it goes. Singer Kimberly Perry carries the album’s lesser songs and makes a meal of its great ones, like the recent hit “Better Dig Two.” It’s the only track to merge the group’s three obsessions — female virtue, faux-old-timey bluegrass and the Brontean glamour of an early death. An almost-murder ballad, the song is both creepy and sweet, a rare moment of ambiguity and shadow on an album that is ﬂuorescently lit. ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Well-Suited for Politics ‘Scandal’s’ costume designer challenges the fashion choices of powerful women Television
What type of research did you do to prepare for the show?
I did the show “The West Wing” for seven years. I’m British; I’m not American. So that was my introduction to Washington. How do costume choices on “Scandal” differ from “The West Wing”?
No Need To Open ‘RKives’ ABC
Kerry Washington brings a welcome dose of designer fashion to the (fictional) political scene in D.C. as Olivia Pope on ABC’s “Scandal” (10 p.m. Thursdays). Silk blouses and luxurious coats dominate the closet of the White House communications director-turned-crisis management specialist. “Scandal” costume designer Lyn Paolo spoke about Pope’s feminine but professional style and her thoughts on dressing powerful women.
“Scandal” star Kerry Washington wears many different outfits as Olivia Pope, but she always sports the same intense look.
Kerry [Washington]’s character is not in the West Wing; she’s not in politics directly. I had a broader range. She still has to be professional. But I had a little bit more leeway in the look and the palette. That intrigued me even more. If we are going to have this great female lead, I wanted her to look female in a man’s world. That is where the idea of the light colors and silhouettes came from.
But in real life, the image of a powerful woman is often Hillary Clinton-type primary shades.
Why does every single woman wear red and navy? I think the American public is smarter than that, and they would like you to be how you are. Why can’t these woman in power dress like themselves, not sticking to some old rules? … I don’t see it as being patriotic; I see it as being without any ingenuity of your own.
Do you have any fashion advice for women in D.C.?
Be true to yourself and have a great tailor. Don’t conform to what I guess men or other women are telling you you have to wear. I see women when I’m in D.C. that are amazingly dressed. They are just not the women we see on camera. That is just part of the conservative political world. CAR A KELLY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Today’s Top Stops
Album Review Rilo Kiley has been broken up since 2010 and hasn’t released a new album since 2007. That trend of them not being a band continues with “RKives,” a collection of unreleased tracks and B-sides that should have stayed that way. Jenny Lewis (above, foreground) stamps nearly every effort with her overbearing vocals. And while some songs have catchy bits — like the hook of “It’ll Get You There” or the jangly guitar on “Runnin’ Around” — there’s a reason why these songs were on the cutting-room ﬂoor. One exception is “Dejalo,” a perky remix featuring the rapper Too Short. It’s not often you hear Lewis crooning next to a rapper. RON HARRIS (AP)

“I’d settle for a consistent DeAngelo Hall. Once again, for better or worse, he’s the Redskins #1 cornerback so we might as well embrace the man. With a one-year contract, maybe that compels him to focus like never before, and it all finally comes together for him. Is that too much to ask?” — EVAN REDMON AT SONOFWASHINGTON.COM analyzes
what next season could be like for Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who signed a one-year deal with the team a month after being cut for salary-cap reasons.

PAR SCORE 140-150, BEST SCORE 220
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ve figured out a difficult situation. Others will come to you for some advice and guidance. You must know where the line is. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are in the mood for something a little more lively than what you’re used to getting from a certain source. Make that clear! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may be undergoing a kind of change that begins inside and only shows itself after it has been going on for quite some time. How do you feel? CANCER (June 21-July 22) You want to enjoy a little more freedom to explore what is out there — but you may have to reel it in toward day’s end.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your positive outlook is more valuable to those around you than you can imagine — though you may not hear it from them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your behavior may be confusing to someone who is used to seeing you do certain things in certain ways at certain times. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) One plus one does not always equal two; you must get used to the fact that not everything will play out as you expect it to. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You will have to do more than expected if you want there to be some time for rest and relaxation when you really think you’ll need it.
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.
53 33 Today: Brilliant sunshine, breezy and cool today. Mainly clear tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The tactics you have been using may be effective, but they are considered outdated by others. Consider some new methods.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You may have to slow down and redo certain things today when you realize you’ve been making several small mistakes that can add up.
POOCH CAFE | PAUL GILLIGAN
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) A surprise is in store, but you may not be able to freely express your surprise until you feel that things are safe.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can certainly go the distance today, but not without preparing yourself in a way that ensures you will leave no stone unturned.
