Donors, Prepare to Open Wallets Court strikes down limits on federal campaign donations
Winners and Losers
A split Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down limits on the total amount of money an individual may spend on political candidates as a violation of free speech rights, a decision sure to increase the role of money in political campaigns. The 5-4 decision sparked a sharp dissent from liberal justices, who said the decision reﬂects a wrong-headed hostility to campaign ﬁnance laws that the court’s conservatives showed in Citizens United v. FEC, which allowed corporate spending on elections. “If Citizens United opened a door,” Justice Stephen Breyer said in reading his dissent from the bench, “today’s decision we fear will open a ﬂoodgate.” Also dissenting were Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion striking down the aggregate limits of what an individual may spend on candidates and political committees. He noted that the limit on individual contributions to a speciﬁc candidate was not affected by the ruling.

Before: A single donor could contribute up to $5,200 to every House and Senate candidate up to a limit of $48,600. Now: If a single donor gives $5,200 to every House and Senate candidate of one party in a 468-race election cycle, the total would be $2,433,600.
Before: Contributions to party committees were limited to $74,600 total. Now: A single donor can give $32,400 to each of the three federal party committees each year and $10,000 to each of the party’s 50 state committees for up to $1,194,400 in a two-year election cycle.

LOSERS Campaign finance reformers: Obviously. (Sorry, John McCain.) Big donors: Yes, you can now give money to more candidates. But, no, you can’t write unlimited checks to your favorite candidate. And, perhaps most importantly, major donors no longer have a built-in excuse when candidates and party committees come calling. The “I hit my contribution limit” excuse is gone. CHRIS CILLIZZ A (THE WASHINGTON POST )
(THE WASHINGTON POST )
WINNERS Joint fundraising committees: They will almost certainly be the preferred vehicle that candidates and party committees set up to collect — and disburse — big checks from wealthy individuals. Party committees: Instead of competing to be the recipient of the $32,400 an individual donor could contribute to a national party committee each year, now the committees are free to collect $32,400 each from a major giver willing to write that sort of check. Big donors: Obviously. State parties: State parties had been starved by the aggregate limits. Now, a donor could, theoretically, give the federal limit of $10,000 to every single one of the 50 state parties.

Lawmakers Accuse GM of Cover-Up Lawmakers on Capitol Hill accused General Motors of a potentially criminal cover-up of its faulty ignition switches and fumed at the lack of answers from its new CEO during a second day of hearings Wednesday into why GM waited a decade to recall cars with the deadly ﬂaw. Members of a Senate subcommittee also said GM should tell own-

ers of the 2.6 million recalled cars to stop driving them until they are repaired. But CEO Mary Barra said the cars, mainly Chevrolet Cobalts and Saturn Ions, are safe and that she would let her son get behind the wheel if he took certain precautions. GM has said the ignition switch can move from the “run” position to the “accessory” position because of weight on the key chain. That causes the engine to shut off,
disabling power steering, power brakes and the front air bags. The switch has been linked to 13 deaths. Barra said many of the answers Congress is seeking will come out in an internal GM probe. She also said she was unaware of certain details about GM’s handling of the problem — which frustrated some. “You don’t know anything about anything,” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., bristled.
Senators questioned Barra about how GM approved a replacement switch in 2006 but never changed the part number. Failing to change the number makes the part harder to track. While Barra said it was “unacceptable,” several panel members implied it was done intentionally. “I don’t see this as anything but criminal,” said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., a former prosecutor.

“Being Christians, we don’t pay for drugs that might cause abortions … something that is contrary to our most important beliefs,” Hobby Lobby founder David Green wrote in an article for USA Today. Based on those religious principles, the company took its case to the U.S. Supreme Court to challenge a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires it to include birth control and emergency contraception in employee health-care plans. So some were taken by surprise Tuesday when Mother Jones reported that the company’s retirement plan holds $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that make abortion drugs. “Several of the mutual funds in Hobby Lobby’s retirement plan have holdings in companies that manufacture the speciﬁc drugs and devices that the Green family, which owns

Hobby Lobby, is ﬁghting to keep out of Hobby Lobby’s health care policies,” the Mother Jones article says. Investments in these sorts of companies are commonplace for the typical retirement fund. But Hobby Lobby has been arguing that it’s anything but typical. Also, there are “faith based” investment options for companies like Hobby Lobby that are particular about whom they do business with. Funds like the Timothy Plan or Ave Maria Fund screen for companies that make abortion drugs or support stem cell research. GAIL SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Yanukovych: Crimea Is a ‘Major Tragedy’ Speaking as if he still wielded authority in Kiev or in Moscow, deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych said Wednesday that he intends to press Russia to return Crimea to Ukraine. Defensive and at times tearyeyed, Yanukovych told The Associated Press and Russia’s state NTV television that he was “wrong” to have invited Russian troops into Crimea and he still hopes to negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin to get the annexed region back. “Crimea is a tragedy, a major

He ﬂed Ukraine in February after three months of protests focused on corruption and on his decision to seek closer ties to Russia instead of the European Union. As the world has watched the tumultuous events in Ukraine, Yanukovych has been a bit of a ghost, even as he has insisted he is still the country’s true leader. While Putin has been openly dismissive of Yanukovych, the Russian president has also described him as the legitimate leader and his ouster as illegal. Yanukovych’s statement about Crimea appeared to represent an attempt to shore up at least some support in his homeland, where

Yanukovych said he has spoken with Putin twice by phone and once in person since he arrived in Russia — describing their talks as “difﬁcult.” Putin said last month that Yanukovych had asked Russia to send its troops to Ukraine to protect its people — a request seen as treason by many Ukrainians. Asked about the move, Yanukovych said he had made a mistake. “I was wrong,” he said. “I acted on my emotions.” Still, Yanukovych echoed the key Kremlin demand for settling the Ukrainian crisis, pushing for a referendum that could turn Ukraine into a loosely knit federation.

Few Casualties in Chilean Quake Iquique, Chile Hard-won expertise and a big dose of luck helped Chile escape its latest magnitude-8.2 earthquake with surprisingly little damage and death. The country that suffers some of the world’s most powerful quakes has strict building codes, mandatory evacuations and emergency preparedness that set a global example. Authorities on Wednesday discovered six reported deaths from the previous night’s quake. It’s possible that other people were killed in older structures made of adobe in remote communities that weren’t immediately accessible, but it’s still a low toll for such a powerful shift in the undersea fault that runs along South America’s Paciﬁc coast. “How much is it luck? How much is it science? How much is it preparedness? It is a combination of all of the above,” said Costas Synolakis, an engineer who directs the Tsunami Research Center at the University of Southern Cali-

fornia. “I think what we just saw here is pure luck.” About 2,500 homes were damaged in Alto Hospicio, a poor neighborhood in the hills above Iquique, a city of nearly 200,000 people whose coastal residents joined a mandatory evacuation ahead of a small tsunami Tuesday night. Still, it was clear that the loss of life and property could have been much worse.
The shaking that began at 8:46 p.m. Tuesday also touched off landslides that blocked roads, knocked out power for thousands, closed regional airports and started ﬁres that destroyed several businesses. Some homes made of adobe also were destroyed in Arica, another city close to the quake’s offshore epicenter. L U I S A N D R E S H E N A O A N D LUIS HIDALGO (AP)

Local Brianne Nadeau and Charles Allen won in wards 1 and 6 Washington Communit y activ ist Brianne Nadeau has defeated incumbent Jim Graham in the D.C. Council Ward 1 race, ending his 15 years of service in a rapidly changing corner of the city after a nasty campaign that featured dueling accusations of ethical lapses. In the at-large contest in the Democratic primary, incumbent Anita Bonds held onto her seat with a commanding victory. Although
she has been in the post for only 15 months, Bonds won by a more than two-to-one margin over her nearest challenger, Nate Bennett-Fleming. And in the third competitive Council race of the season, Charles Allen overwhelmingly defeated Darrel Thompson in the Ward 6 contest to replace Tommy Wells, who gave up a chance at re-election to run for mayor. In Ward 1, Graham, a four-term incumbent, struggled to weather the ethical issues that had dogged him for the past two years. Questions about Graham’s conduct began circulating in 2012, when he was found to have improperly intervened in a Metro contract on

What Went Wrong With The D.C. Election Count? D.C. voters had to wait four hours after polls closed Tuesday before receiving meaningful election results after problems with a handful of voting machines led to an unusually lengthy tabulation process. The long wait — unusually long even by the generous standards of the D.C. Board of Elections — led to criticism for those left to stand around for hours waiting to hear the results of a closely watched mayoral race among other contests. Questions started arising about 9:30 p.m., 90 minutes after polls closed. In other recent elections, ofﬁcials had posted the results of early voting not long after polling ended on Election Day. But on Tuesday, early voting totals were not released until nearly 10 p.m., and even then results were available for only 83 of the city’s 143 precincts. But the real confusion ensued about a half-hour later, when the first Election Day results were released. They indicated that 55 of 143 precincts were reporting, but only about 17,000 votes were

reported in an election that was expected to attract 100,000 voters or more. Later, results for 116 precincts were reported, still accounting for only about 45,000 votes. Tamara Robinson, a board spokeswoman, said that only paper ballots had been tallied due to issues with tabulating results from the electronic voting machines. This year, for the ﬁrst time, every precinct had at least two electronic machines, Robinson said, and many precinct workers did not know how to properly shut down multiple machines, leading to the long delays.
sive but did not trump Allen’s knowledge of Ward 6 constituents. In the race for the at-large seat, Bonds faced Bennett-Fleming as well as John Settles and Pedro Rubio.

Arlington installs an electronic device to count trail’s cyclists Arlington
Arlington County’s newest cyclistcounting device was supposed to record County Board Chairman Jay Fisette as its first passing cyclist. But when Fisette’s bike pulled the cloth from the shiny new pillar Tuesday morning, he wasn’t the ﬁrst or the 10th bicyclist to be recorded. Some 637 cyclists had triggered the automated counter while the speeches were going on.
PATRICIA SULLIVAN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Meet the ‘Bikeometer’
The “bikeometer” was unveiled Tuesday.
The new device, called a “bikeometer,” is the only one of its kind on the East Coast. It will tabulate and display the number of cyclists who pass by the intersection of Lee Highway and North Lynn Street,
just south of the Key Bridge. A readout will show the daily, monthly and year-to-date totals for the estimated 500,000 cyclists who use this portion of the Custis Trail each year. “That which doesn’t get counted doesn’t count, and this counts,” Fisette said. “We are in the midst of a transformation that gives … a full range of options for getting around.” Arlington has 30 other counters, but they don’t display the information in real time. The county will use the data for research into how, where and when to address the needs of bikers and walkers, and to improve safety and access. PATRICIA SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bowser Aims for Unity The Democrat may face a serious challenger in the general election
A Still-Divided District
Democrats across D.C. turned away from incumbent Mayor Vincent Gray on Tuesday, picking Muriel Bowser as their November candidate. With a lackluster turnout, Bowser won with fewer votes than the losing candidate Adrian Fenty got four years ago. But Gray’s supporters abandoned him on an even larger scale. In his east-side strongholds alone, his totals dropped by almost 28,000.
Washington A day after she won the Democratic nomination for D.C. mayor, Muriel Bowser sought to unify her party and look forward to the November general election — even as she said she had not yet heard from Mayor Vincent Gray. “People came out for us, and they spoke with a loud voice,” Bowser said at a room atop the National Press Club that her campaign had reserved a day before she separated from the pack of seven challengers to the mayor, beating Gray by 12 percentage points. “I’m very proud to be here after one year and now eight days on the campaign trail,” Bowser said. “We’re asking for every Democrat and everybody out there, independents and Republicans, to take a good hard look at our campaign, including Mayor Gray’s supporters.” Asked if Gray had yet reached out to her, however, Bowser said the mayor had not. Amid historically low turnout in which roughly one in ﬁve registered Democrats cast ballots, Bowser won Tuesday with 44.3 percent of the vote to Gray’s 32.4. In part, the lower turnout reﬂected a new, earlier schedule for the city primaries. Bowser is expected to face Council member David Catania, I-At large, in the Nov. 4 general election, perhaps setting up the ﬁrst competitive general election ﬁght since the city began electing mayors in 1974. A recent Washington Post poll, however, showed Bowser would begin with a 30-point advantage in the
In Ward 4’s precinct 55, Gray and Bowser tied with 253 votes apiece.
Gray’s Base In the past two weeks, Gray focused on his base in Wards 7 and 8, where he won four-fifths of the vote in 2010. Gray still won there, but with far less support. In Ward 7’s precinct 110, for example, he won with 831 fewer votes than in 2010.
Bowser’s Home Win Bowser captured Ward 4, which she has represented on the D.C. Council for seven years, with 50 percent of the vote. It was the only ward that Gray won in 2010 over Adrian Fenty but lost in 2014.

heavily Democratic District. Bowser expressed deep conﬁdence in a November win but said she was not discounting Catania. A major theme of her campaign in the closing weeks was that she would be a more formidable opponent to Catania than Gray, who was tied with him in the Post poll. And the challenge is serious enough that the city’s top Democratic party ofﬁcial said Wednesday that she plans to ask the Democratic National Committee to put serious resources into the local

Why Gray Lost His Job Mayor Vincent Gray never escaped the shadow of the illegal scheme that helped him win his office in 2010. He never convinced the half of the city that voted against him four years ago that there was meat to his “One City” slogan. And in the final, decisive three weeks of the campaign, Gray failed, even on his home turf, to answer many voters’ doubts about his honesty. In his home base, it wasn’t just the scandal that damaged him. “He claims he’s doing so much for us, but look at the unemployment,” said Rusty Mason, a retired postal worker. “The city’s getting rich, but over here, it’s all the same.” To voters with doubts, any cracks that appeared in the city’s veneer of economic success made the mayor seem less suited for a second term.

party to fend off Catania. “We’re asking them to put resources in here,” said Anita Bonds, chairman of the D.C. Democratic State Committee and herself an At-large Council member. “This is the ﬁrst time we’ve ever had a challenge, you know, from a non-Democrat. … We’re going to be talking about thousands, whatever it takes.” Bonds said she has already had informal discussions with party leaders about the potential need for national party help ahead of the Nov. 4 general election. A DNC spokesman did not immediately respond Wednesday to questions on whether a D.C. mayoral race would represent an appropriate use of national funds in a congressional mid-term election year. Catania’s campaign manager, Ben Young, said Wednesday that an appeal for national assistance “sounds like a campaign that is worried.” “The local political establishment’s hold on the city government is about dislodged,” Young said. “Yesterday’s turnout was all you needed to know.” Statehood Green and Libertarian candidates will also appear on the November ballot, as well as other potential independents.

Judah Friedlander THE WORLD CHAMPION OF EVERYTHING (EXCEPT MATH AND READING)
Though Judah Friedlander is known for his collection of catchphrase-bearing hats, the former “30 Rock” star has been sticking to just one lately. It says “World Champion” and it goes on whenever the 45-year-old Gaithersburg, Md., native transforms into his stand-up persona, The World Champion. So if you watch Friedlander perform at the DC Improv this weekend, know that you’re not seeing the gross, slacker comedy writer you know from “30 Rock,” but a bombastic, assertive karate hero who’s the best at (almost) everything. It’s been a year since “30 Rock” ended. What have you been up to?
Mostly been touring, pretty much nonstop. Been doing a variety of little acting projects here and there. I just did a little thing in [Syfy’s] “Sharknado 2.” What can you say about the ﬁlm?
It’s pretty awesome. Ian Ziering killing sharks in New York. I won’t ask you to spoil the movie, but I assume your character doesn’t make it out alive.
In my stand-up act, people know me as The World Champion, the greatest karate hero on the planet. In this movie I get to show my acting range. I am not playing the
real-life karate hero and shark killer that I am. I’m playing more of a regular hero in this movie. If you were faced with a real-life sharknado, would you be Ian Ziering in that scenario?
I actually did train him and I did a few of his stunts. You also did a pingpong movie called “Ping Pong Summer.”
I did do a little pingpong movie, just a little cameo. I play pingpong and I’m an advocate for the sport. Soccer is my other game, and I did some videos for MLS called “MLS Insider.” My two big projects this year are a stand-up album and a stand-up documentary movie.
Do you have a timetable for either of your stand-up projects?
Not really. Loose ones. I’m doing them myself, so they’re going to be self-produced. They’ll both be done and out this year. Is there anything you’re not the world champion of?
Mathematics, no. Reading comprehension, no. But you wrote a book, “How to Beat Up Anybody.”
Yeah, I did. Reading and writing are two different things. Dude — they’re complete opposites. If you’re a good writer, it doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good reader.
Let’s not talk about it. You know a lot of people have a question you’re not allowed to ask? You’re not allowed to bring up my SAT scores. Did you watch the Sochi Olympics at all?
Yeah, I did check some of that out. I was not impressed. Why didn’t you compete?
I’m banned. I also boycotted the Olympics because I just think the Olympic policies that they have [are wrong]. Especially the policy of: The country that wins the most medals gets to invade Ukraine. It’s just so wrong and then all these countries agreed to do it anyway. No wonder Russia wanted that medal count. It’s just wrong — why that’s official Olympic policy, I have no idea.
“I’m not running, I’m standing for president. This country needs people to stop running away from problems and stand up for what’s right.”
During your shows, you often share ideas for what you would do if you ran the country. Are you mulling a presidential run in 2016?
I gotta correct you there: I’m not running, I’m standing for president. This country needs people to stop running away from problems and stand up for what’s right. What would be your ﬁrst act as president?
I already got a place, so there’s no point in moving into the White House. I would just make that a place for anyone to live and hang out. What are you looking forward to doing when you come to D.C.?
Maybe I’ll check out the White House. See what kind of renovations I want to do. Maybe I’ll add a water park. No president’s ever given a free water park to the people. Why would they not do that? It seems obvious when you say it. Maybe no one’s thought of it.
You know, a lot of these presidents, they’re career politicians, they don’t think outside the box. That’s something I can bring to the table. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

Lost in the Dream Dean Wareham finds his way — even when he forgets the path Music Even after playing music for more than 25 years with three different bands, singer-songwriter Dean Wareham still doesn’t know exactly what he’s doing. “There’s always a fear that you’ll just be completely unable to write a song,” Wareham says. “You just have to start playing. Work out some kind of chord structure. Then you start humming. Then the humming sounds like something. Then you figure out what words go

there … Maybe I do it backwards.” Wa r e h a m’s r e v e r s e s on g engineering might help explain why, at 50, he’s only just released his first solo album. The frontman for influential and atmospheric rock band Galaxie 500, dream pop group Luna, and husband-and-wife duo Dean & Britta, brings an impromptu spirit to the self-titled set of ethereal guitar-rock songs. Produced by My Morning Jacket singer Jim James, at James’ home studio in Louisville, Ky., the record has an intimate, cosmic folk-rock vibe that complements Wareham’s normally plaintive style. “This record would have been very different had Jim James not
Backstory My Morning Jacket singer Jim James, left, and Dean Wareham first got to know each other around 1999, when the reverb twang of MMJ’s debut, “The Tennessee Fire,” drew comparisons to Wareham’s band Galaxie 500. “[MMJ] kept getting compared to Galaxie 500 [because of] the reverb and the falsetto,” Wareham says. “So Jim was like, ‘Who is this band Galaxie 500? I guess I should check them out.’ I got an email from Jim a little while later just saying hi.” D.L .
been involved,” Wareham says. “He gave it a lot of energy. Some of the songs were quiet acoustic demos, and he just had the band play them so much harder. He would take all the chords out of them and just do weird things.” Wareham’s studio band, which included wife Britta Phillips (of Luna and Dean & Britta) and drummer Anthony LaMarca (now a member of the War on Drugs), made themselves at home at James’ place, where they also slept throughout the recording process. James himself added vocals and guitar to the album. “We had a lot of fun,” Wareham says. “The drums were in the living room, the recording console was in the dining room, my microphone was set up in Jim’s den. [Yet] it sounds like it was recorded in an expensive studio.” Before heading to Louisville, Wareham wrote the record quickly, which mirrors the spontaneous and free-flowing style that marks his best work. “I am kind of naive,” Wareham says. “I’m not trained. I don’t know music theory. The songs tend to have simple structures that I use again and again.” It’s the same unsophisticated approach he took back in the late 1980s with Galaxie 500. “We were just learning to play our instruments,” Wareham says. “Sometimes it’s the weaknesses of the musicians that can make it interesting.” A q u a r t e r c e nt u r y l a t e r, Wareham is a much more skilled guitarist and songwriter than he’d care to admit. To his credit, he continues to make feeling lost sound beautiful. DREW LITOWITZ (FOR EXPRESS) U Street Music Hall, 1115 U St. NW; Fri., 7 p.m., $15; 202-588-1880, ustreetmusichall.com. (U Street)

Emma Donoghue Reading an Emma Donoghue book is like falling into a deep friendship with an unlikely stranger: a lady of the evening, a cross-dressing frogcatcher, an imprisoned child. The author’s empathy for outsiders makes for captivating characters; she illustrates the complex inner lives of her creations with a candor that shows humanity at its best and worst. Here are three books of Donoghue’s — including her eighth novel, the new “Frog Music” — worth getting tangled up in. When you come up for air, hear her speak at Politics & Prose on Saturday. ALLIE GHAMAN (E XPRESS) Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW; Sat., 6 p.m., free; 202-364-1919, politics-prose.com. (Van Ness)
A shot rings out in 1876 and cross-dressing, gun-toting frogcatcher Jenny Bonnet is dead. (This bit isn’t fiction; the San Francisco murder remains unsolved.) A few feet away, her friend, celebrated French showgirl Blanche Beunon, is bewildered and terrified. Her stumbling search for Jenny’s killer will keep the reader hooked, but Donoghue’s great triumph in “Frog Music” is her depiction of San Francisco. From the bustling back alleys of Chinatown to the city’s desolate outskirts, Donoghue’s San Francisco, seedy and libertine and vital, holds as much power over its citizens as they do over each other. YOU’LL NEED: Google Translate, best used in a private browser window. Pardon the NSFW French.
The reader cannot be emotionally prepared enough for “Room.” Donoghue’s Man Booker Prize finalist is narrated by 5-yearold Jack, raised by an abducted woman in a tiny concrete shack. Bittersweet moments — Ma and Jack play “Phys Ed” games to keep their muscles strong, and do daily chores to keep despair at bay — contrast with the dizzying climax, when the pair risk all to break free from their oppressor. Donoghue’s narrative ingenuity shines in her nuanced imagining of the powerful codependency between a young mother striving for hope and her innocent, courageous son. YOU’LL NEED: Tissues, most of the time, and a paper bag to breathe into, some of the time.
In the year 1760, 13-year-old Mary Saunders of London finds herself seeking a more exciting life at any cost. And the cost will be steep, as her path leads her to sully her reputation and risk her life as a teen prostitute. Fierce, ambitious and flawed, Mary is enchanting and exasperating all at once. The reader hopes for the best and braces for the worst as she moves from schoolyard to city square to country town, trying to improve her lot in life. Like Jenny in “Frog Music,” Mary is based on a real woman. YOU’LL NEED: A comfortable chair. Even when Mary’s at her most teenage-rebellious, the reader can’t abandon her without knowing if she’s finally grasped the edges of her lofty, irrepressible ambitions.

In the Deep End
CLAES OLDENBURG, ‘TEA BAG,’ 1966 The only sculpture in the show, this comically large representation of a tea bag nonetheless fits thematically with the exhibit’s 2D works. “What ties all Pop art together is its subject matter,” says curator Joann Moser, “and ordinary objects were often the most important.” “Tea Bag” is also a multiple — part of a set of identical pieces. Oldenburg was thumbing his nose at the art establishment, which was overly enamored of one-of-a-kind works. ROBERT INDIANA, ‘LOVE,’ 1967 Robert Indiana originally designed “Love” for a Christmas card in 1965; later, he made screen prints (shown below), sculptures and paintings of the image. Consumer culture spawned the work, which led to actual consumer products: Today, “Love” appears on T-shirts and knickknacks worldwide. “There was always a lot of back and forth between Pop art and advertising,” Moser says.
Pop artists weren’t shallow. They used superficiality to touch on the profound

JIM DINE, ‘UNTITLED,’ 1966 Both Jim Dine’s father and grandfather owned hardware stores, so the artist grew up around tools. Part of his “Tool Box” series, this cluttered screen printed collage also features a photo of Dine’s kids in a tub. Elevating such ordinary objects was a reaction against the work of abstract expressionists such as Jackson Pollock.

CLAES OLDENBURG JIM DINE (ARTISTS RIGHTS SOCIETY)
A Pop art collage of a giant Donald Duck head, an old family photo and lots of power tools — funny, odd, maybe a wry nod to consumerism, but hardly a Rembrandt, right? “Pop art is much more layered and complex than people think,” says Joann Moser, curator of “Pop Art Prints” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. “It serves as the mirror that exaggerates … reflecting the culture we live in back to us in the different way.” Pop art works are indeed deeper and darker than their bold, flat appearances suggest. The artists, who were at their busiest in the 1960s, were inspired not only by advertising and popular culture, but also by the politically charged events of the era and the media that covered them. Many Pop artists worked with texts and images taken straight out of newspapers and magazines. Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist regularly used media clips in their works. Andy Warhol produced a series of monochromatic prints illustrating media coverage of death and disaster. A few of these — screen printed photos of Jackie Kennedy at President Kennedy’s funeral, and police dogs attacking a civil rights protester — are in the exhibition. Not that the artists themselves were any less bewildered by current events than fans and critics of their works: “Pop artists were commenting on consumer society, while attempting to understand it themselves,” Moser says. ELENA GOUK ASSIAN (FOR E XPRESS)
MORGAN ART FOUNDATION (ARTISTS RIGHTS SOCIETY)
ANDY WARHOL, ‘JACKIE III,’ 1966 Andy Warhol collected numerous images of Jackie Kennedy from international media coverage of John F. Kennedy’s death, using them to create a number of portraits of the first lady in mourning. Both death and celebrity fascinated Warhol.
ROY LICHTENSTEIN, ‘SWEET DREAMS, BABY!,’ 1965 Although inspired by the mass production of comic books, Lichtenstein always drew his Ben-Day dots — the pixels of the printing process used by comic books of the era — by hand. With one foot in “high art” methods and the other in “low art” imagery, the artist brought the two worlds together while pointing out the absurdity of their segregation. Pow!

Want to see some Shakespeare? There’s plenty to choose from:
‘Hamlet … the Rest Is Silence’
Synetic Theater launched its wordless Shakespeare series with this rendition of Hamlet in 2002. To celebrate giving 10 Shakespeare shows the silent treatment, the company is reviving its original hit. Synetic Theater, 1800 S. Bell St., Arlington; through Sun., 866-8114111, synetictheater .org.

‘Twelfth Night’ Baltimore crowds can catch Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy at Center Stage — with a cast featuring Broadway and West End vets.
KEVIN ALLEN PHOTOS
Much ado has been made about the various Shakespearean elements in “House of Cards,” the political drama set in D.C. Kevin Spacey’s character breaks the fourth wall, just like the titular king in “Richard III,” his power-hungry wife acts like Lady Macbeth and his grudge against the president is straight out of “Othello.” But that’s nothing compared to the influence that Shakespeare — whose 450th birthday is this month — wields in real-life Washington. It makes sense that Shakespeare’s works, which are populated by royalty and rulers, would resonate in the nation’s capital, arguably the most powerful city in the world. He penned all of his memorable phrases while living in London at the dawn of the British Empire. So the barbs about politics and law that once drew titters from the crowds at the Globe Theatre are met with the same knowing laughter by Washington audiences today. And the questions Shakespeare raised in his plays are still topics for debate in the highest echelons of government. (Sometimes literally: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg presides each year over the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Mock Trial, which makes a federal case out of a plot point.) The Bard’s status here has been boosted even higher by the presence of the Folger Shakespeare Library, which sits just a block from the U.S. Capitol. The marble building is as impressive as any presidential monument, especially considering the treasures inside. It’s regarded as the world’s finest collection of works by, about and related to the playwright. Take the First Folio, the book
The Shakespeare Theatre Company recruits politicians (that’s Rep. Jim McDermott and Sen. Susan Collins, top) and judges (that’s justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Samuel Alito, above) for its events.

published in 1623 that collected 36 of Shakespeare’s plays. “It’s the one with the familiar picture of the bald guy,” says Garland Scott, the Folger’s head of external relations. Of the 750 copies printed, there are only about 230 copies still in existence, and the Folger has 82 of them. (A Japanese university comes in a distant second with a dozen.) The library attracts researchers from around the globe, so Shakespeare is on a lot of minds in D.C. He’s also all over our stages. According to the Theatre Communications Group, which keeps tabs on performances nationwide, D.C. has an impressive appetite for the Bard. Reports from the organi-

Local options to see Shakespeare include, from top: “Hamlet … the Rest Is Silence” at Synetic Theater; “Henry IV” at Shakespeare Theatre and “Two Gentlemen of Verona” at Folger Theatre.
zation’s members show that Shakespeare plays have accounted for 12.9 percent of their productions in town since 1998. That’s more than double the national percentage, says executive director Teresa Eyring, adding that D.C. productions are done by “the best of the best.” On any given weekend, Washington theatergoers have several Shakespearean options, many of them innovative interpretations, says Tom Prewitt, artistic director for WSC Avant Bard. His company has performed all-female Shakespeare, all-nude Shakespeare and Shakespeare in Klingon. Another unusual approach? Wordless Shakespeare.

The Folger Library, shown far left under construction in 1930, nods to the significance of its location. A Puck statue seems to laugh at the Capitol, while the U.S. coat of arms in the Great Hall, far right, celebrates it.
The Folger boasts 82 copies of the First Folio, the 1623 book that collected 36 Shakespeare plays. Visitors can flip through a digitized copy in the Founder’s Room.
Zeigler says. For decades, the Folgers went on a shopping spree, and stashed their acquisitions in warehouses. They were secretive about their dealings because they were worried about skewing prices in the rare-book market. Even selecting
an address for their library was a hushhush affair. “There were 10 possible places written on a small piece of paper in alphabetical order. Amherst [Mass.] was first, and Washington was last,” Grant says. Brooklyn, N.Y., and Princeton, N.J.,
Happy Birthday, Will! The Folger Shakespeare Library (201 E. Capitol St. SE, folger.edu) was dedicated on April 23, 1932 — Shakespeare’s 368th birthday. The library has been marking the occasion every year since. For the big 4-5-0, there are impressive (and free!) plans afoot. These activities kick off a multiyear celebration leading up to 2016, the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Several mega projects are in the works, including a plan to bring a First Folio to all 50 states. Shakespeare’s Birthday Lecture

“It was risky. But I knew Washingtonians knew the Shakespeare stories,” says Synetic Theater’s Paata Tsikurishvili, who first attempted this physical style of storytelling with “Hamlet … The Rest is Silence” in 2002, and has turned the concept into an ongoing series. The Shakespearean saturation is particularly gratifying to Michael Kahn, who came to Washington in 1986 to helm the theater at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Because of rising deficits, the library’s trustees were considering dissolving the performance wing of the organization. Under Kahn’s guidance, however, Shakespeare became a hot ticket. In 1992, Kahn’s Shakespeare
THE WASHINGTON POST
Cloudy skies were spitting rain that day in 1918, so Henry and Emily Folger popped up their umbrellas as they set off on a walk from Union Station. The New Yorkers were hunting down a suitable home for their “boys,” which is what Mr. Folger called the books in their beloved — and unrivaled — Shakespeare collection. Visitors taking a stroll around Capitol Hill today can find it inside the GrecoDeco building at 201 E. Capitol St. But few people know the story of how the Folger Shakespeare Library wound up in Washington, or even who the Folgers were. (No coffee fortunes were involved.) Author Stephen H. Grant hopes to change that with the release last month of “Collecting Shakespeare: The Story of Henry and Emily Folger” ($30, Johns Hopkins University Press). Grant chronicles how Henry Folger’s smarts landed him a job at Standard Oil, where he earned big bucks. But he and his wife didn’t live like other Industrial Revolution tycoons. The childless couple rented a house, never entertained and socked away nearly every penny to put toward their Shakespeare collection. Their purchasing power overseas was magnified thanks to lucky timing. Think of “Downton Abbey,” says Georgianna Ziegler, the Folger’s head of reference. In the early 20th century, Brits on the verge of losing large estates were willing to cut deals for cash. And it may have been a good thing that the Folgers swooped in when they did. “Because of the wars, many precious British manuscripts were destroyed,”

tours of the historic reading rooms and birthday cake for all. Stephen Grant will also be speaking about his new Folger biography.
This exhibit curated by Georgianna Ziegler showcases items from the collection that represent four centuries of “Bardolatry.” See Salvador Dali’s costume designs for a 1948 production of “As You Like It,” a bookcase that’s a miniaturized version of the Shakespeare “temple” located at an 18th-century actor’s house and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Barbie.
were also on the list, as was Stratfordupon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace. After weighing the costs, accessibility to scholars and cultural clout of each location, the Folgers settled on the nation’s capital. As Grant quotes Henry Folger in his book, “I finally concluded I would give it to Washington; for I am an American.” But he didn’t tell anybody. After the couple settled on a location, they spent nine years covertly acquiring deeds for all 14 houses on the block, Grant says. Eventually, the Folgers revealed their secret. Architects were hired, plans drawn and the cornerstone laid. And then Mr. Folger dropped dead. There are parallels between the collector and his idol, Grant notes: “Shakespeare died and never saw a compilation of his works, and Folger never saw his library.” But the legacies of both men live on in the same building. V.H.
Theatre Company broke off from the Folger and relocated to a larger space downtown. (So you can also credit Shakespeare with some of the city’s urban renewal, Kahn notes.) The Shakespeare Theatre Company now operates two downtown theaters, the Folger is back in show business, and STC’s annual Free For All continues to mint new Shakespeare fans. “It’s difficult to read [Shakespeare] at home by yourself. He wrote it to be acted,” Kahn says. “Seeing it live, you get caught up in it. That’s the best way to encounter Shakespeare.” And the best place? Well, that’s obvious. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

Weekend Pass | dining From left: chefs Bradley Curtis of Flight Wine Bar, Aaron McCloud of Cedar, Matt Kuhn of Ardeo + Bardeo and Jennifer Nguyen of Zentan.
These successful local chefs said ‘no thank you’ to the culinary-school path If Jennifer Nguyen has 10 free minutes at work, you won’t catch her texting with pals. Instead, the executive chef of Zentan, a modern Asian restaurant in Thomas Circle, is likely leading an impromptu lesson on slicing sashimi as inquisitive sous chefs look on. Nguyen f inds every teachable moment because, as a chef who never attended culinary school, she knows the importance of curiosity in the kitchen. Like Nguyen, other notable D.C. chefs
— including Bradley Curtis of Flight Wine Bar, Aaron McCloud of Cedar and Matt Kuhn of Ardeo + Bardeo — have found success without a formal degree. “It sets us apart because we’re a little more driven,” Nguyen says. “We don’t have the advantage of a piece of paper. We have will.” Michael Babin, founder of the Neighborhood Restaurant Group (which oversees 17 local restaurants including Iron Gate, Red Apron Butcher
and ChurchKey) estimates that he’s inter viewed more than 500 chef candidates in his 17 years of experience. He says a culinary degree is not a prerequisite, though it doesn’t hurt. “With a culinary degree you’re learning principles, ideas and technique, but learning those things in a busy kitchen is a different thing,” Babin says. “You’re getting a real-time reaction of your peers, your boss and the guests. That experience molds you much more

“I worked three times as hard because I didn’t have the advantage of going to school.” — JENNIFER
NGU Y EN, EXECUTIVE CHEF OF ZENTAN WHO OPTED FOR DIRECT KITCHEN EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN GOING TO CULINARY SCHOOL
quickly than culinary school.” In her teens, Nguyen took orders at a Chinese restaurant in Lancaster, Pa., but spent more time stealing peeks of cooks working the woks. She began honing her skills at a small Thai restaurant in Philadelphia under chef Kamol Phutlek. Her big break came when she was promoted to executive sous chef at Morimoto, an Asian fusion restaurant in Philadelphia. “I worked three times as hard because I didn’t have the advantage of going to school.” Nguyen says. “It gives you a special humbleness.” She also credits nurturing chefs like Phutlek for her strong foundation of skills. “If you can take something from each chef you work with, you’re already ahead of the curve.” Nguyen had the benefit of working for big-name chefs in major cities, but that’s not the only recipe for success.

Weekend Pass Don’t Rule Out School All this is not to say that you should drop out of culinary school and start tossing pizza. Patrice Olivon, the director of culinary arts at the top-ranked L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, Md., sees culinary school as a fast track into an increasingly competitive industry. (Notable grads include Katsuya Fukushima of Daikaya, Shannon Overmiller of The Majestic, and Carla Hall.) “Of course anything is possible, but outside of culinary school, you only learn a new thing every so often because busy chefs don’t have time to teach, making progress slower,” he says. “Culinary school shoots you to the top.” Olivon described a recent graduate’s promotion to sous chef at Vidalia with great pride. It took only nine months after he handed her a diploma, and she didn’t have to start out on dishwashing duty. Another perk of that diploma is the unmatched peer network you gain, as well as the recognition. It’s not uncommon for fellow graduates to put in a good word for one another, or look to hire alumni of the same program. L.H. Flight executive chef Bradley Curtis “mom-and-popped” at a Maine pizza place when he was 14, and later at a small Moroccan restaurant in New York. It was there that he met his mentor, Russ Catalano. “He was rough on me,” Curtis says. “But he saw something and pushed me. I learned how to handle stress. That’s not taught in culinary school.” Catalano’s influence can be seen in the touches of Moroccan flavors that come through on Flight’s menu, like the bronzino dusted with sumac and za’atar pesto. Other chefs inched into the kitchen after front-of-the-house gigs. Take Aaron McCloud. Before he began serving garden-rich dishes at Cedar in Penn Quarter, McCloud serenaded diners with his violin in his early teens at a fine dining restaurant in Ann Arbor, Mich. “The idea was to make millions as a concert violinist and buy a restaurant,” McCloud says. Instead, he traded his bow for a dishrag and never looked back. “I didn’t have anybody telling me, ‘You’re going to go to school and when you get your diploma you’ll be a chef.’ I had people kicking my ass.” McCloud earned an undergraduate dual degree in marketing and hotel, restaurant and travel administration. At 23, he became the chef de cuisine at a Florida hotel. The move that catapulted his career, however, was serving as saucier at the AAA Five Diamond Award-win-
ning Victoria and Albert’s restaurant in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. District residents can thank that stint for the bacon vinaigrette sauce atop the Texas wild boar dish at Cedar. Like McCloud, Matt Kuhn, the executive chef of Ardeo + Bardeo, was lured by the call of the kitchen and changed his plans. “When I got to college I was going to major in marine biology, but then found out they had a restaurant management program,” Kuhn says. In an era when chefs are expected to manage people, inventory, the kitchen facility and more, the degree gives Kuhn a leg up. Throughout school, Kuhn worked at The Gourmet Shop in Columbia, S.C., where he’d open the cafe at 5 a.m., escape to class in the afternoon and return to the helm as kitchen manager. “Real-world experience is faster than going to culinary school,” Kuhn says. “Every day you work you learn over 20 new things.” L AUR A HAYES (FOR E XPRESS)

How do you do that through food?
The idea was starting in the South and having a chicken with milk gravy. If you take the milk out, and you add sour cream and paprika you could be in Hungary. If you take the milk out, and you add tomatoes and bananas and habanero, you can be in West Africa. The technique is the same, basically, but you’re changing the spices. And that’s sort of how we are as people. We’re very similar, and the differences are very small.
CHEF, CO-HOST, COOKBOOK AUTHOR
Carla Hall is a former “Top Chef” contestant, a D.C. resident, owner of an artisanal cookie company and a co-host of ABC’s “The Chew.” But her true calling is expanding America’s definition of “comfort food.” In her new cookbook, “Carla’s Comfort Foods” ($30, Atria Books), the native of Nashville, Tenn., begins with the Southern recipes she grew up eating and branches out to explore classic dishes from around the world. She’ll talk about it at Sixth and I on Monday. This book is about comfort food, but a very international version of comfort food.
As soon as I say “comfort food,” you go to macaroni and cheese, collard greens, smothered chicken, barbecue. But the fact of the matter is I love all kinds of foods from all over the world, and they’re just as comforting as food from my region. Did you get to travel all over the world to ﬁnd recipes?
No. I wish. Some of the dishes come from the places I’ve traveled. Some of it is just traveling around D.C. because, as you know, we have so many different cuisines represented here. It’s really nice to kind of travel through food here in D.C. What local places do you like?
A lot of the places we go to are joints. We just want a little joint. I
You cook very healthfully. How do you do that with comfort food?
Mission, a taqueria from the same ownership duo behind Mason Inn and George, opened March 25 in Dupont (1606 20th St. NW; 202525-2010, missiondupont.com). Leading the kitchen is Rodrigo Albarran, who also owns R&R Tacos, the acclaimed taqueria in an Elkridge, Md., gas station. At both spots, Albarran serves Mexico City-inspired tacos and sopes, though Mission boasts a fuller menu that includes hamburgers and ceviches. You know they’ll be delicious, but here are three things you probably didn’t know. 1. Chef Albarran used to work full time as a commercial pilot and is a certified flight instructor. He got furloughed while working at a cargo company and took it as a sign to pursue the opportunity to open R&R with his dad. 2. On the second floor, you’ll find a retro-looking pay phone tucked in a photo booth. It’s not connected to a land line, but there is an electrical outlet in the booth. Co-owner Fritz Brogan calls the space the “cellphone charging station.” 3. Mission claims to be the only restaurant in D.C. with Corona ontap. Technically, it has Corona Light on draft, which is not unique: Agua 301 near Nats Park offers the same cerveza on tap.
think that’s why you have to go to Wheaton, Md., and Fairfax and Falls Church. They’re still there. I’m really happy about our restaurant scene, but unfortunately the more expensive the real estate is, you kind of push those places out. I don’t know what the solution is. You want that authentic food, but they can’t really afford to be downtown.
What I really try to do is to come back to having those fresh ingredients and cooking from scratch. When you’re controlling what you make and what you’re putting into your food, it can be very healthy. At the Sixth and I event, you’ll be speaking with Pati Jinich of Pati’s Mexican Table.
What was the inspiration for this cookbook?
The f irst t hought t hat I had actually had nothing to do with food and had more to do with people. It was around 2012, and people were just focusing on their differences. I said, “You know, I wish I could show through food how we’re very similar.”
I love her! She’s been on “The Chew” at least three times. [Cohost] Mario [Batali] has a huge crush on Pati. BETH MARLOWE (EXPRESS) Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW; Mon., 7 p.m., $20; 202-4083100, sixthandi.org. (Gallery Place)

CARLA HALL’S TANGY HOT CABBAGE SLAW “There’s a pupusas joint near my home that gets packed as dinnertime approaches. Their hot griddled cornmeal cakes come with a little plastic container of this slaw, which balances the hearty meat-and-cheese fillings. This super simple slaw is just as good on any other cornmeal creation.”

IN OTHER CHEWS
Ingredients 1 ⁄2 cup white vinegar 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon sugar 1 ⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 8 cups thinly sliced cabbage
Makes Eight Servings In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar, salt, sugar and pepper until the sugar dissolves. Add the cabbage, onion, carrot, jalapeno and oregano and toss well. You can cover the slaw and refrigerate it overnight, but it’s best fresh. You can adjust the amount of onion to your taste. To make it spicier, keep the seeds in the chile and add another if you’d like. Recipe adapted from “Carla’s Comfort Foods” with permission.

RGIII Cautiously Optimistic QB is encouraged by offensive options with Jackson addition Nationals Robert Griffin III ranked among those with the highest levels of excitement over the addition of three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson late Tuesday night. But the quarterback tempered his emotions Wednesday morning by pointing out that much work lies ahead for the Redskins, who are trying to rebound from a 3-13 season. The third-year quarterback expressed encouragement over the impressive collection of weapons that he now has to work with. But he cautioned that he and his teammates must do more than just show up. “It’s an exciting time to be a Redskins fan and a part of this team because of the firepower that we have,” Grifﬁn said. “Everyone needs
Top Receiving Tandems of 2013 Here’s a look at how the 2013 stats of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson would rank among other top receiving duos in the league last year.

to understand that we haven’t won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can.” Grifﬁn spent last week laying the groundwork for those bonds and chemistry. He and many of his passcatchers trained together in Arizona to get a head start on the offseason program, which starts next week. He already ﬁgured to have an improved collection of weapons with Andre Roberts joining Pierre Garcon, who last season led the NFL

in catches, and with second-year pros Jordan Reed, a tight end, and Chris Thompson, a running back, healthy after injury-shortened seasons. Now the Redskins have further bolstered the receiving unit by adding Jackson. The Redskins signed Jackson despite the fact that he had a high level of controversy swirling overhead after the Eagles released him last week, following a career year and with signiﬁcant money owed to him. Washington ofﬁcials did their
The Redskins lacked a deep threat on offense last season, recording just six passing plays of 40 yards or more — second-fewest in the NFL. So adding one of the best big-play receivers in the league should certainly make Washington’s offense more dynamic. DeSean Jackson had eight 40-yard catches by himself in 2013, and he’s averaged at least 14.7 yards per catch each season in his six-year career. In 2013, the Redskins had seven players with at least 20 catches and the highest yards per reception average out of that group was 12.5 by Leonard Hankerson.
Amount of DeSean Jackson’s threeyear deal with the Redskins, with $16 million guaranteed. The receiver is owed $8 million a year in each of the three seasons.
homework on Jackson and began their pursuit of him over the weekend, while Grifﬁn and teammates lobbied for the team to sign Jackson. Grifﬁn, who has a relationship with Jackson, said Wednesday that he believes Jackson will receive a warm reception both from the locker room and the fan base. “We are excited to have him join our team. Our team and this city will be there for him,” Grifﬁn said. “I understand his drive and his competitiveness to win. Always doing it for his dad [an inﬂuential ﬁgure in Jackson’s life, and one who lost a battle with cancer in 2009], and now doing it for this city.” MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Why It Might Not Focusing on on-field concerns, Jackson’s addition won’t help the Redskins’ mediocre red-zone offense. Just three of Jackson’s nine touchdowns in 2013 were less than 20 yards. And while Pierre Garcon led the NFL in receptions and targets last year, he had just five touchdown grabs. Jackson, Garcon, Santana Moss and offseason acquisition Andre Roberts are each 6-feet tall or shorter, so quarterback Robert Griffin III won’t have a big receiver on the outside to target in the red zone, which might put a lot of pressure on 6-foot-2, 243-pound tight end Jordan Reed.

A Guide to the Final Four DAVID GOLDMAN (AP)
The Teams Florida: The top overall seed in the tournament has played like it, extending its winning streak to 30 games. Kentucky: John Calipari’s latest group of one-and-dones needed a little time to get going. Once the roll started, no one has been able to stop it.
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos is expected to miss four to five weeks.
UConn: The Huskies won the 2011 title behind Kemba Walker. Shabazz Napier is the one-man gang this time.
The Stars Napier, UConn: A 6-foot-1 point guard who can do it all and had a great mentor in Walker.
perfect fit for the Badgers.
Julius Randle, Kentucky: A projected top-five NBA draft pick is big, athletic and often unstoppable.
Patric Young, Florida: The Gators’ big man is like a linebacker in basketball shorts.
Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin: When he’s hitting his 3-pointers, this 7-footer is all but unguardable.
Aaron Harrison, Kentucky: The guard hit the winning jumper against Michigan despite struggling with his shot most of the game. He has a twin brother who’s not bad, either.
Ryan Boatright, UConn: Napier’s backcourt sidekick can shoot and has become a point-guard stopper on defense.
Scottie Wilbekin, Florida: From being asked to transfer by his own coach to becoming one of college basketball’s best closers.
Sam Dekker, Wisconsin: He’s scrappy, versatile and a good shooter — a
Billy Donovan, Florida: So much for not being able to get the Gators to the Final Four without NBA-ready players. Bo Ryan, Wisconsin: He’s made the Final Four for the first time as a coach after taking his late father, Butch, every year since 1976 as a birthday gift.
Kevin Ollie, UConn: He was thrust into a difficult situation with NCAA sanctions last season, and he’s managed it incredibly well. JOHN MARSHALL (AP)
Calipari, Kentucky: The slick coach with the designer suits might irritate some, but he sure can recruit players — and win games.
College Athletes Look for Support

Members of a group trying to unionize college athletes sought out potential congressional allies Wednesday as they braced for an appeal of a ruling that said full scholarship athletes at Northwestern University are employees who have the right to form a union. Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, the face of a movement to give college athletes the right to unionize, and Ramogi Huma, the founder and president of the National College Players Association, had meetings scheduled with lawmakers over a twoday period. “The goal is to make athletes

have a seat at the table. Health and safety of athletes is the concern, especially to reduce the risk of brain trauma,” Huma said outside the Capitol before heading to a meeting with Sen. Sherrod
Brown, D-Ohio. Among the others they expected to meet with were Rep. George Miller of California, the top Democrat on the House Education and Labor Committee; Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., whose district includes Northwestern; Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; and Rep. Tony Cardenas, D-Calif. They intended to make clear one of their chief concerns, providing for athletes’ medical needs. Huma said the group also was concerned the NCAA would lobby Congress to prohibit unionizing by college athletes. “We want to make sure they have an opportunit y to hear from us directly,” Huma said.

Wisconsin: The Badgers are feisty, fundamentally sound and one of those teams opponents hate to play.
Nats’ Ramos Has Surgery On His Hand Nationals Catcher Wilson Ramos underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a broken bone in his hand, manager Matt Williams said Wednesday morning on his weekly paid appearance on 106.7 The Fan. Williams expects Ramos will miss four to five weeks. Ramos exited Monday’s season opener with a left hand injury. He also recently complained of wrist discomfort. Before one of the Nationals’ ﬁnal spring training games, Ramos wore a large ice wrap around his left hand. At that time, he dismissed soreness as nothing to worry about. Ramos is believed to have suffered the injury on a foul tip during Monday’s game, Williams said after the game. He was replaced in the bottom of the inning by backup Jose Lobaton, who the Nationals acquired in a mid-February trade to upgrade its catching depth behind Ramos. On Wednesday, the Nationals recalled catcher Sandy Leon from Triple-A Syracuse. (THE WASHINGTON POST)
TV Lineup NATIONALS (1:05 P.M., MASN) Jordan Zimmermann will get his first start of the season when the Nats take on Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets at Citi Field.

A Clash of Fanatics
Palin’s Reality Sarah Palin has found her calling. Again. She is the host of “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” premiering tonight (8 p.m., Sportsman Channel). There she is, wearing a pink T-shirt with flowery lettering that spells out “Girls with Guns.” Does she mean shootin’ guns or “big arm” guns? Both, I betcha. If your TV had Smell-O-Vision, this show would emit massive amounts of “eau By Marc de machismo.” Sarah Silver and three correspondents (all men) profile “risk takers,” “legacy makers” and people who “live life unapologetically and on [their] own terms.” But I wonder if the show will live up to Palin’s proclamation: “This isn’t going to be a fake, scripted reality show.” Because she sounds a teeny bit scripted herself when she goes on a dogsled run and squeals “I love my life.” And one “risk taker” is professional wrestler James Storm. Correct me if I am wrong, but is not “Storm” a fake name and is not professional wrestling, um, fake? Then again, the unapologetically long, lustrous locks under the wrestler’s trademark cowboy hat definitely seem real. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
It’s time for a truce between watchers and readers of the ‘Game of Thrones’ series Television
With the highly anticipated fourth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” at the top of the weekend’s TV lineup (9 p.m., Sunday), the power dynamics have once again started to shift. Make no mistake, ladies and lords, war is coming. A savage struggle is being fought between two factions: nerds who watch “Game of Thrones” and nerds who read “A Song of Ice and Fire,” George R.R. Martin’s fantasy saga upon which the series is based. If you’ve read the books, you know that … [SPOILER ALERT!] Gotcha! See? We could spoil everything for you, but we choose not to. Because snitches get stitches — but spoilers? There’s a special cell beneath the Red Keep for them, and that’s the unspoken agreement readers and viewers have shared these past three seasons. Still, with only ﬁve of the saga’s planned seven books completed, it’s become increasingly apparent that HBO’s production speed is threatening to surpass Martin’s notoriously unhurried writing process. The coming season will even dramatize events found in the most recently published volume, “A Dance with Dragons.” Earlier this month, with promotion intensifying for the premiere, a cryptic post promising future surprises on Martin’s website ignited
HBO /EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
Winter returns for “Game of Thrones” stars, from left, Jack Gleeson, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington.
“They are [catching up]. Yes. It’s alarming.” — GEORGE R.R. M A RTIN, AUTHOR OF THE “A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE” SERIES ON WHICH “GAME OF THRONES” IS BASED, NOTING IN THIS MONTH’S VANITY FAIR THAT THE HBO SHOW IS CATCHING UP TO HIS BOOKS
rampant speculation that a release date announcement for the saga’s forthcoming sixth volume, “The Winds of Winter,” was imminent. Martin collaborator Elio Garcia would later quell these rumors, conﬁrming that “the book is not yet done, and no ﬁrm release date can be given until that time.” A sample chapter was released last week,
though Martin again offered little encouragement a complete next installment will be arriving soon. Ideally, Martin will complete the ﬁnal two books of the saga in a timely manner, but to paraphrase Benjen Stark, nothing someone says after the word “ideally” really counts. We stand on the precipice of doom. Like, Doom-of-Valyriadoom. If “The Winds of Winter” has no release date in sight and its supposed ﬁnal volume, “A Dream of Spring,” remains only a gleam in his eye, devoted fans from both ends of Martin’s universe face the distinct possibility HBO might ﬁnish his story for him. “Game of Thrones” executive producers David Benioff and Dan
Weiss have conﬁrmed a recent visit to Martin’s home in New Mexico to lay the groundwork for future seasons, including the ﬁnal season of the show. So basically, they know how it ends. This has all been an elaborate scheme by two book readers hell-bent on spoiling everything for themselves even if it means spoiling it for everyone. One thing is clear: When “A Song of Ice and Fire” becomes the novelization of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the realm will bleed. Perhaps it’s time we sign a pact between readers and watchers. We haven’t spoiled anything for you; don’t let them spoil anything for us. Or winter is coming for us all. BARRY SCHWARTZ (THE WASHINGTON POST)

From left, Joey Santiago, Black Francis and David Lovering make up the Pixies.
For the Pixies, the Best Is Yet to Come Music They inspired generations of musicians worldwide, served as the blueprint for countless rock bands, including Nirvana, and got a second life as reunited alternative rock idols. Now, the Pixies say they’re looking for a new sound. Since the debut of its ﬁrst EP in 1987, the Boston quartet has released a slew of college radio hits, including “Monkey Gone to Heaven,” “Here Comes Your Man” and “Where Is My Mind.” They disbanded in the early 1990s and reunited in 2004. After nearly a decade of silence, the band surprised fans in June with “EP-1,” an online collection of four new songs, and the announcement of a global tour. Have they found the Pixies sound they want? “Not yet. That’s still to come,” said lead singer Charles Thompson, who goes by the stage name Black Francis. “Rome was not built in a day. I think we need a little more time to really create something that’s abso-
lutely different but we’re in the process. With this record, we’re moving in that direction.” The Pixies hired Argentine bassist Paz Lenchantin in December after Kim Shattuck was ﬁred after less than ﬁve months on the job. She had replaced beloved longtime bassist Kim Deal who quit the Pixies in June after more than 25 years with the band. “I like the new gal, she’s smart, funny, plays really good bass, she surfs, she sings great, she’s bilingual,” Thompson said. “And she makes us laugh,” guitarist Joey Santiago chimed in. “She feels like home, she was meant to be with us.” Drummer David Lovering said she’s also pushing him to continue learning: “She is making me play better. She is a great bass player, and I don’t want to embarrass myself.” Thompson says the band plans to continue to tour. For now, “the Pixies is the future,” Santiago said. “I just see us. We’re going to record more albums, tour more.” LUIS ANDRES HENAO (AP)
History in the Recording The Library of Congress on Wednesday added 25 pieces to its National Recording Registry, a collection of 400 audio recordings preserved for their historical importance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have something hanging over you that you cannot readily shake off — at least not before you tend to some pressing personal business. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may have trouble making sense of instructions you receive through the grapevine. You’ll want to go directly to the source. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can discover something online that has you wondering if things are the way they should be. Any changes should be made swiftly. CANCER (June 21-July 22) The more you indulge in a solitary delight, the more you are likely to isolate yourself from those around you. It may be time to share. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It’s a good day to put another’s needs ahead of your own. A partner has some suggestions that can put you both ahead of the game.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Others may think of you as one who can step in and do almost anything, but you know that some things are far beyond your reach.
