Parents to be stuck in timeout at next year’s Easter egg hunt

Because no one wanted the prize of reading a cop Miranda rights

Connecticut police say a man wearing a black T-shirt that said “Hold My Beer And Watch This” was arrested for driving under the influence after he crashed into the low stone wall of a graveyard in Putnam early Monday. State police say 25-yearold Woodstock resident Harrison Wootton was charged with driving under the influence, failing to drive in the proper lane and misuse of plates, the Hartford Courant reports. (AP)

A Pennsylvania volunteer fire company says it has canceled this year’s Easter egg hunt for children because of “unruly” parents in past years. Deputy Chief Chuck Hipple of North Coventry Township says there has been a recurring problem of some parents running onto the field despite having been told not to and posing a danger to children. He says it’s not the majority of people but a few people who “just can’t seem to let the kids have fun.” (AP)

A police union in Louisiana is raffling off a grand prize that has shocked some: the use of a stun gun on one of its officers.

District gives country extra tax filing time THE DISTRICT The rest of the country this year once again has an opportunity to learn about D.C. Emancipation Day — a holiday little known beyond the District that marks the anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the nation’s capital. The holiday, which shuts down city government, will be observed this year on April 17, the Monday after April 15, the typical deadline for filing taxes. Because of the conjunction, the entire country gets a one-day reprieve on filing 2016 tax returns, making the official tax filing deadline Tuesday, April 18. Emancipation Day usually is celebrated April 16, the date in 1862 when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act, which freed about 3,100 slaves in the District. But this year, April 16 falls on a Sunday, so the District will celebrate the holiday the following

day. D.C. holidays are treated as federal holidays for tax filing purposes, according to the Internal Revenue Service. That pushes the official taxfiling deadline to the next business day, April 18. And, everyone — residents of Florida, California and everywhere in between — will receive an extension, not just D.C. residents. “When April 15 falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, a

return is considered timely filed if it is filed on the next succeeding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday,” IRS spokesman Ubon Mendie said in an email last year. “The term ‘legal holiday’ includes a legal holiday observed in the District of Columbia.” In 2016, the country had a three-day reprieve on filing taxes because April 16 fell on a Saturday, so the District celebrated the holiday on April 15, a Friday. That moved the tax filing deadline to Monday, April 18. D.C. government shuts down for Emancipation Day, although the federal government and most businesses in the city remain open. The day was officially observed for the first time as a public holiday, one that closed the city government, in 2005. The holiday is marked by a parade (which was last Saturday due to April 16 falling on Easter Sunday) in which city leaders and schoolchildren march along Pennsylvania Avenue. This year, the rest of the country also might learn about the District holiday. PERRY STEIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Whole Foods debuts in PG County PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY Prince George’s first Whole Foods Market will open today with much fanfare. Store employees will hand-tear a 5-foot-long golden-brown loaf of challah baked in-house and give customers a taste. And Prince George’s will get a sweet taste of victory. Not just because the store is bringing 170 new jobs to the county. Or because it will give residents of the county’s Route 1 corridor a high-end grocer. Or because the wait for those doors to open took more than six years of

Hogan gets big wins in legislative session MARYLAND Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who has clashed with Democratic legislative leaders and struggled to get bills passed over the past two years, just finished his most successful legislative session since taking office in 2015. Hogan, a Republican who enjoys wide popularity in the deepblue state, got his major win in his final legislative session before he gears up for re-election next year. In the final hours of the 2017 legislative session, which ended Monday, the General Assembly passed a jobs bill, offered by the governor, that provides tax breaks to manufacturing companies that relocate to Baltimore and other economically depressed areas. The General Assembly also passed an ethics bill, proposed by Hogan, that strengthens the

other bipartisan legislation was symbolic of “the working relationship” between Democratic and Republican leaders this year. “I think it was a session we can all be proud of,” he said. But Sen. Richard Madaleno, D-Montgomery, who is considering a run for governor in 2018, offered a less sanguine take on Democratic relations with the governor, saying the Hogan administration only engaged with the legislature this year “on a handful of issues that are important to” him. “They were very engaged on the manufacturing bill,” he said. “They’re very engaged on the issues that he cares about. But he avoids getting his hands dirty on any issue that isn’t adequately poll-tested in advance.” OVETTA WIGGINS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Spicer: Even Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons

CLASSIFYING SCENTS

Science finally decodes smell of old books

POLITICS White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” — a comment at odds with Hitler’s use of gas chambers to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust. Spicer was attempting to discuss the horror of the chemical weapons attack last week in Syria, which the Trump administration is blaming on President Bashar al-Assad. “We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II,” said Spicer, adding that “someone as despicable as Hitler … didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” Minutes later, Spicer delivered a garbled defense of his remarks in which he tried to differentiate between Hitler’s actions and the gas attack on Syrian civilians last week that left nearly 90 people dead. After the briefing, Spicer emailed a statement to reporters: “… I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable.” Spicer later apologized, saying in an interview with CNN that he mistakenly used “an inappropriate, insensitive reference

White House press secretary Sean Spicer drew backlash for comparing Assad and Hitler on Tuesday.

to the Holocaust.” He said there was no comparison and “it was a mistake to do that.” He added, “It was my blunder.” According to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazis experimented with poison gas in late 1939 with the killing of mental patients. Both mobile and stationary gas chambers were later used, with up to 6,000 Jews gassed each day at Auschwitz alone. Spicer’s comments, which came on the first day of Passover, immediately reverberated through the Jewish community. The New York-based Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect called on Trump to fire Spicer, saying he denied that

Hitler gassed Jews during the Holocaust. Steven Goldstein, the center’s executive director, said in a statement that Spicer had “engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death.” It’s not the first time the Trump administration has been criticized for comments related to the Holocaust and anti-Semitism. The White House released a statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day in January that make no reference to Jews, and some have taken issue with the slow speed with which Trump has condemned anti-Semitic attacks. KEN THOMAS AND JILL COLVIN (AP)

He later apologizes for ‘insensitive reference to the Holocaust’

In a new study published in Heritage Science, University of London researchers created the Historic Book Odor Wheel, a fragrance guide for old books, smithsonian.com reports. The scientists did a chemical analysis of compounds emitted by book pages, which are constantly decomposing and creating their own unique scent. To name each scent, researchers asked visitors to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in England and smellers at Wren Library at St. Paul’s Cathedral to smell old books. The wheel uses the responses, ranging from “moldy” to “chocolate,” in its categories. The wheel isn’t just for fun, though. It can help archivists identify the condition and any threats to a book.

Another “Great Spot” has been found on Jupiter. Scientists reported in Geophysical Research Letters on Tuesday that the dark expanse is 15,000 miles across and 7,500 miles wide. It’s in the upper atmosphere and much cooler than the hot surroundings, thus the name Great Cold Spot. Unlike the planet’s familiar Great Red Spot, this newly discovered weather system is continually changing in shape and size. It’s formed by the energy from Jupiter’s polar auroras and could be thousands of years old. (AP)

Trump administration suspends weekly reports listing sanctuary cities

White House accuses Russia of a cover-up NATIONAL SECURITY The Trump administration broadened its assault on Russia’s military involvement in Syria on Tuesday, offering new evidence that U.S. officials said showed that Moscow’s explanation for the April 4 chemical attack was false. Senior officials said that U.S. signals and aerial intelligence, combined with local reporting and victim samples, showed that a Russian-made, Syrian-piloted SU-22 aircraft dropped at least one munition carrying nerve gas sarin on Khan Sheikhoun. The officials said nothing from intelligence and public material provides credence to the account put forward by Syria and Russia, which claimed routine bombing inadvertently struck an opposition chemical weapons depot. Officials said the U.S. had not yet reached a consensus on whether Russia knew about the chemical attack that killed nearly 90 ahead of time. But they suggested that it was unlikely that Russian troops, stationed at the air base singled out last week, would have been kept in the dark. The officials blamed the Kremlin for a “clear pattern of deflecting blame” for its actions and those of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government. “I think it’s clear that the Russians are trying to cover up what happened there,” an official said. The criticism takes place as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, above, arrived in Moscow on Tuesday. MISSY RYAN AND GREG JAFFE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Lawyer: Uzbek man, 39, pleads guilty in truck attack

Islamic State has lost most of the land it seized in 2014

An explosion Tuesday at a sprawling ammunition plant near Kansas City, Mo., killed one person and injured three others, the U.S. Army said. The Army Joint Munitions Command said the blast happened at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, just east of Kansas City. A spokeswoman said no other details, including what caused the explosion, were immediately available. The 77-year-old plant sits on nearly 4,000 acres and is the first of a dozen Army-run small-arms factories. The plant makes smallcaliber ammunition and tests its reliability. It also operates a NATO test center. (AP)

A 39-year-old old Uzbek man has pleaded guilty to a terrorist crime after ramming a truck into a crowd in Stockholm, killing four people and wounding 15, his lawyer said Tuesday. After the court hearing, defense lawyer Johan Eriksson said Rakhmat Akilov is “pleading guilty” to Friday’s attack and that his client could remain jailed as long as it takes to resolve the case. Police have not given a motive for the attack and no extremist group has claimed responsibility, but police chief Dan Eliasson said that after questioning Akilov, they have become increasingly “convinced that we have the right suspect.” (AP)

The Islamic State group has lost more than three-fourths of the territory it seized when it swept across Iraq in the summer of 2014, the Iraqi military said Tuesday. Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasool, a military spokesman, said the extremist group currently controls less than 6.8 percent of the country’s territory, down from more than 40 percent at its height. Iraqi forces backed by U.S.-led airstrikes are currently battling the extremists in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city. The extremist group has also lost ground in Syria, and is fighting U.S.backed forces near Raqqa, the de facto capital of its caliphate. (AP)

PR disaster for United CEO orders review of man dragged off plane after first response misses the mark N. Korea warns it will use nukes if it’s provoked

United faced intense backlash after a video of a ticketed passenger getting dragged from a plane went viral.

On Tuesday, Munoz offered a stronger mea culpa for the “truly horrific event,” saying, “No one should ever be mistreated this way.” He promised a review of airline policies by April 30 and vowed to “fix what’s broken so this never happens again.” Jim Corridore, an airline analyst for CFRA Research, said that after “poorly handling a PR disaster,” United’s CEO “is finally saying the right things.” The man hauled off the plane, David Dao, a doctor from Elizabethtown, Ky., had been told along with three other passengers to give up their seats so that four employees of the company operating the flight for United could board. Dao was the only one to refuse. To make room on the plane, United had tried to entice volunteers with travel vouchers worth $800 and a hotel room. When there were no takers, a United manager went on board and announced that four people

NAM Y. HUH (AP)

BUSINESS United Airlines is getting pummeled on late-night TV. Online, jokers are proposing new corporate slogans such as “We have red eye and black eye flights available.” On Wall Street, the airline briefly lost nearly $1 billion in market value before its stock regained much of the loss. Cellphone videos of airport police dragging a 69-year-old passenger off an overbooked flight have become a public relations fiasco for United, with travel and PR experts saying the airline fumbled the situation from the start and made matters worse with a tone-deaf apology from the CEO. It’s too soon to know whether Sunday night’s incident at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport will cause lasting harm. Many travelers go for the cheapest fare, no matter what the name on the plane. Then again, there are those videos of the man being yanked out of his seat and pulled down the aisle on his back as other passengers gasped. “That is the craziest act I’ve ever seen. Who drags a ticketed passenger off an airplane?” said Bruce Rubin, a longtime practitioner of crisis public relations in Miami. “Because it’s so visual and it’s so unnecessary, it’s the kind of thing that can hurt United long-term.” Just two weeks ago, United was at the center of another PR furor after a gate agent in Denver barred two girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings. United CEO Oscar Munoz apologized on Monday for the latest incident but also blamed the passenger for not obeying when airline employees asked him to leave. Munoz called the man “disruptive and belligerent.”

“They are really beginning to become the brand that people think we should not fly.” RICHARD LEVICK, a crisis PR consultant in D.C., saying United responded poorly after a passenger was dragged off one of its planes

would be removed. Big mistake, say the crisismanagement experts. Everyone wondered why United didn’t simply sweeten the offer until four passengers agreed to get off. “A few dollars could have solved this problem,” said Allen Adamson, founder of Brand Simple Consulting in New York. “Instead, the damage of the brand will be millions of dollars.” United said passengers were already seated when the four employees of Republic Airline

showed up at the gate and insisted on boarding the plane to Louisville, Ky., so that they could operate a flight the next morning. Munoz, who just last month was named PR Week’s “Communicator of the Year,” was vilified. Munoz took the top job at United in September 2015 but was sidelined for months by a heart attack and transplant. After returning, he set out to improve an airline that had lagged behind its rivals financially and disappointed passengers with computer outages and canceled flights. United has made progress at repairing labor relations and is rebuilding its route network. Still, United ranked eighth out of the 12 largest U.S. airlines in 2016 on-time performance, customer complaints and other measures. The stock of parent United Continental Holdings Inc. plunged 4.4 percent Tuesday morning but recovered and was off 1.4 percent shortly before the closing bell. DAVID KOENIG (AP)

Activists: Syrian forces drops barrel bombs in Daraa, day after U.S. warns use of explosives could bring response

ASIA The U.S. and North Korea are engaging in high-tension brinkmanship, with North Korea warning Tuesday that it’ll “hit the U.S. first” with nuclear weapons. Over the weekend, the U.S. Navy rerouted an aircraft carrier strike group, capable of firing missiles and shooting missiles down, to the Korean Peninsula. Pyongyang said Tuesday that “pre-emptive strikes are not the exclusive right” of the U.S. “Our military is keeping an eye on the movement of enemy forces while putting them in our nuclear sights,” declared the Rodong Sinmun, the mouthpiece of the ruling Workers’ Party. The newspaper warned North Korea would use its “mighty nuclear weapons” to “obliterate” the U.S. if it made the slightest move toward a pre-emptive strike. On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted, “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.” But there are good reasons to think the tension won’t escalate into an actual clash. The stakes remain too high, analysts say. “I don’t think we’re about to go to war against North Korea,” said Ralph Cossa, president of the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Pacific Forum in Honolulu. “But the United States is certainly trying to send a message that they are fed up with the North Koreans.” ANNA FIFIELD (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Turkey: Sarin used in Syria Autopsy results confirm chemical weapon was used in deadly attack MIDDLE EAST Turkey’s health minister said Tuesday that test results confirm sarin gas was used in an attack last week on a northern Syrian town, while the Russian military said the Syrian government is willing to let international experts examine its military base for signs of chemical weapons. Health Minister Recep Akdag said blood and urine samples

taken from three victims confirmed that they were subjected to the nerve agent, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported. Officials from the World Health Organization and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons assisted with the autopsies. Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy of the Russian General Staff said in televised remarks that Russia will provide security for international inspectors seeking to examine Syrian bases, and that Damascus has agreed to allow the inspections. His comments came shortly after Russian President

Ikea takes a stab at affordable housing

Vladimir Putin said Moscow will appeal to the United Nations to investigate the attack on Khan Sheikhoun. Putin also said Moscow has received intelligence about planned “provocations” using chemical weapons that would be used to pin the blame on the Syrian government. Moscow, a backer of the Syrian government, has dismissed suggestions that Damascus could be behind the attack. The Syrian government also denies it, saying its air force bombed a rebel arsenal storing chemical weapons. BASSEM MROUE AND PHILIP ISSA (AP)

Swedish furniture giant Ikea is building an apartment complex in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, in an effort to provide its employees affordable housing, the BBC reports. The 36 apartments are expected to be available to staff next summer, with rents starting at $895 a month. The average rent for a one-bedroom in central Reykjavik is $1,565, with the tourist boom pricing out many locals. The units may also be offered to students and nearby workers. (EXPRESS)

THREE POINTERS

Value picks after day 1

RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU

Draft McCaffrey: He could fill need in the first round receiver, he also caught 82 passes over the past two years. At 5 feet 11 and 202 pounds, McCaffrey has a slight frame that could lead to durability concerns, but he’s proven to be a physical runner. He’s also quicker than incumbent starter Rob Kelley. Washington hasn’t spent a first-rounder on a runner since Ray McDonald in 1967. The nation’s leading collegiate rusher gained only 223 yards as a rookie before getting injured and released in 1968. The Redskins’ first-rounder in 1942, Spec Sanders, fought in World War II and never played for the franchise. The Redskins drafted UCLA’s Cal Rossi in the first round in 1946 and 1947, but he wasn’t eligible the first year and opted to become a teacher after the second selection. Ernie Davis, the top overall pick in 1962, was traded to Cleveland and died of leukemia just five months later. The first draft pick in franchise history, Riley Smith (No. 2 overall in 1936), only gained 58 yards in three years.

3 Joe Williams, Utah 5 feet 11, 210 pounds

ERIC RISBERG (AP)

The Redskins have a history of first-round busts at running back, but that shouldn’t scare them away from taking Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey on April 27. The success of Ezekiel Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards after he was drafted fourth overall by Dallas last year, has made first-round running backs trendy. McCaffrey has seen his stock rise from a late firstround projection up to around the Redskins’ pick at No. 17 and perhaps even earlier. McCaffrey’s father is Ed McCaffrey — who won backto-back Super Bowls as a receiver for the Broncos — and his maternal grandfather was Olympic sprinter David Sime, who won a silver medal in 1960. After rushing for 2,019 yards and eight touchdowns as a sophomore at Stanford, McCaffrey ran for 1,603 yards and 13 TDs last year. An excellent kick returner and

Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette are all expected to be picked in the first round. If the Redskins draft a defender, these three backs could be available later on. GABE HIATT (EXPRESS)

Christian McCaffrey is a uniquely versatile threat as a runner, receiver and kick returner, but his 5-foot-11, 202-pound frame could give teams pause.

Andy Farkas (1938) was the Redskins’ best first-round back. The two-time Pro Bowl pick led the NFL in scoring in 1939 and was a member of the 1942 championship team. The team’s best backs, such as John Riggins, Clinton Portis and Terry Allen, arrived in trades or free agency. Others were taken later in the draft. Larry Brown, the 1972 MVP, and Stephen Davis were drafted in the eighth and fourth rounds, respectively. The public push is for the Redskins to take a defensive lineman, linebacker or safety

with their first pick. But Washington also has a great need at running back after Matt Jones lost the job at midseason and Kelley tailed off, averaging just 3.3 yards per carry over the final six games. If Florida State’s Dalvin Cook and LSU’s Leonard Fournette go off the board first, and Denver doesn’t trade up from No. 20 to take the son of one of its former star, then Washington should select McCaffrey. Rick Snider has covered sports in Washington since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks

Red flags include being suspended at UConn for credit card theft and briefly retiring last year, but he ran for 1,407 yards as a senior.

2 D’Onta Foreman, Texas 6 feet, 233 pounds

Ball security and physicality concerns make him similar to Matt Jones, but he ran the 40 in 4.45 seconds at his pro day and had 2,028 yards in 2016.

1 Kareem Hunt, Toledo 5 feet 10, 216 pounds

He flashed at the Senior Bowl (118 yards on 15 carries) and averaged at least 5.5 yards per carry in all four years of his college career.

Wizards can end Heat’s playoff hopes behind No. 7 Indiana (41-40) and a tiebreaker behind No. 8 Chicago (40-41). For Miami to reach the postseason — a near impossibility after its 11-30 start — either Indiana or Chicago must lose. Tonight, Chicago hosts the Nets (20-61), who have the worst record in the NBA, and Indiana hosts Atlanta, who entered a Tuesday game against Charlotte with a one-game lead over Milwaukee for the No. 5 spot. “It’s win or go home,” Miami guard Josh Richardson said. “Win, and we still might go home.”

WILFREDO LEE (AP)

NBA For Miami, the season is going down to the final night. The Heat need a win at home against the Wizards tonight (8, CSN). They need some help, too, but they still have a chance to make the playoffs after Monday night’s effort against Cleveland. Tyler Johnson scored 24 points, including the game’s final four from the foul line in overtime, and Miami kept its postseason hopes alive by rallying past the Cavaliers 124-121. The Heat (40-41) are ninth in the Eastern Conference, a game

Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points with 18 rebounds against the Cavs, who were without LeBron James (calf) and Kyrie Irving (knee). Miami survived despite two Cleveland four-point plays in overtime, rallying for its 29th win in the past 40 games. “Even if we wouldn’t have started 11-30, to go to the last game and have an opportunity to be in the playoffs, you would take that,” Johnson said. “It makes it that much more special knowing everybody was kicking dirt on us two months ago.” TIM REYNOLDS (AP)

NHL

Kings dismiss duo that led title runs Coach Darryl Sutter and general manager Dean Lombardi were the Kings’ leaders during the franchise’s best years. But not even their Stanley Cup pedigrees could keep their jobs safe in Los Angeles. The Kings fired Sutter, right, and Lombardi on Monday, dropping the duo that led the team to their only two titles, in 2012 and 2014. L.A. promoted former defenseman Rob Blake to vice president and GM after four years as Lombardi’s assistant. Team executive Luc Robitaille was promoted to president in charge of hockey and business operations. Sutter is the franchise’s winningest coach (225-14753), and Lombardi is their longest-serving GM. The Kings (39-35-8) missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. (AP)

Dortmund player hurt after explosions hit bus

Maryland president: UNC deserves ‘death penalty’

Three explosions went off near the team bus of one of Germany’s top soccer clubs Tuesday as it headed to a Champions League quarterfinal match, authorities said. It was unclear what caused the explosions ahead of the first leg match between Borussia Dortmund and visiting Monaco, which was later called off and rescheduled for Wednesday. Dortmund said the injured player was Spanish defender Marc Bartra and that he was hospitalized. Dortmund chief executive HansJoachim Watzke said Bartra had injuries in the arm and hand “but nothing life-threatening.” (AP)

In response to a question about protecting Maryland from the corrupting influence of athletics, school president Wallace Loh likened sports scandals to “dormant volcanoes” and pointed to North Carolina as an example. The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) reported Monday that in a public meeting last week, Loh singled out UNC, which has been under investigation since 2014 for allegedly directing athletes to bogus classes. “It’s abysmal,” Loh said. “I would think that this would lead to the implementation of the death penalty by the NCAA. But I’m not in charge of that.” (EXPRESS)

CRITIC’S NOTEBOOK

Dear John, get weird

Sheryl Crow is sending a message MUSIC Last year, Sheryl Crow started a petition on change.org to shorten the U.S. presidential election cycle. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter says she was exhausted by both the divisive language that had dominated the discussion about the candidates and how social media had impacted the conversation. “Now we have this forum for haters to come out and say the worst thing you could possibly say to someone without having the experience of the reaction,” she says. “We’ve learned to be a society without empathy and without compassion.” The ways people connect, or fail to connect, became a central theme of her upcoming album, “Be Myself,” out on April 21, which brings Crow back to her

last two records. “The whole album is very informed by the atmosphere, which is very chaotic, very vitriolic,” she says. “A lot of fear [was] really in the ether while we were making this record.” Crow listened back to her early records, including her debut, “Tuesday Night Music Club,” and her 1998 album “The Globe Sessions.” She also teamed up with Jeffrey Trott, her longtime songwriting partner and a multiinstrumentalist, and brought in Tchad Blake, a Grammy-winning engineer who worked with her in the late ’90s. “We wanted to make a really catchy record, but one that had some edge, some grit, in the same way that some of those early recordings had,” Trott says.

AP/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

early roots as a rocker after brief stints exploring country music and soul music on her

The singer is trying to bring compassion back with her next album

Stick to the basics While working last year on her forthcoming album, “Be Myself,” Sheryl Crow says she was sure to not overthink the process. “As you get older, you start making records that are more calculated and you’re trying to compete with what you’ve done and not repeat yourself,” she told Rolling Stone. “I wanted to have the feeling I had when I made my first two records, which was like being a kid playing with my friends and writing about whatever came to mind.” (EXPRESS)

Crow, who has often peppered her lyrics with political references, asks for cooperation and compromise as a solution to the current discord in her first single off the album, “Halfway There.” And, as a mother of two children, ages 6 and 9, she sings about favoring an unplugged life in “Roller Skate,” a nostalgic, toetapping song about ditching the phone for a good time. “At the end of the day,” Crow says, “you’re missing out on life experiences if you’re constantly checking in with anybody that’s not in the room.” KRISTIN M. HALL (AP)

John Mayer is still doing damage control seven years after dropping the N-word in an interview with Playboy during which he referred to his libido as a “white supremacist.” Since then, we’ve wondered how his freaky brain makes such un-freaky music. His seventh album, “The Search for Everything,” has been rolling out in four-song “waves,” with the final wave crashing on Friday. The most sexy-strange lyric to bubble up so far comes in “Love on the Weekend,” in which he describes his love buzz as a “serotonin overflow.” It’s a start, but what if Mayer chose to wrestle with his strangeness in song? Shouldn’t his music be as weird as he is? Imagine a breezy, blue-eyed soul jam about battling the white supremacist beneath your zipper. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Ed Sheeran’s copyright lawsuit gets dismissed

A $20 million copyright infringement lawsuit over Ed Sheeran’s hit song “Photograph” has been settled. A federal judge in Los Angeles dismissed the case on Monday based on a request by attorneys for Sheeran and the composers of a 2011 song called “Amazing.” The composers, Martin Harrington and Tom Leonard, claimed in the suit, filed in June 2016, that “Photograph” was nearly identical in pitch, tempo and structure to their song, which was recorded and released as a single by 2010’s “X Factor” winner Matt Cardle. The terms of the settlement were not included in court filings. (EXPRESS/AP)

COMEDY “The Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj will perform at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on April 29, taking on the traditional role of cracking jokes about the president and the Fourth Estate for a black-tie-clad crowd at the Washington Hilton. Association President Jeff Mason said the choice of Minhaj, whose comedy is often laced with social and political satire, underscored the dinner’s more serious tone this year, with President Trump and his aides skipping the dinner and the usual crowd of Hollywood imports staying home. “We were not looking for someone to roast the president in absentia — that’s not fair and it’s not the message we want to get across,” Mason said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday. Mason added that he thought the comic would entertain, but also “speak to” the dinner’s themes of celebrating the First Amendment and journalism. “I’m confident

NO COLLECTION TOO SMALL or LARGE WE BUY EVERYTHING!

he’ll be able to … strike the right balance.” In a press statement following the announcement of his headlining duties, Minhaj mimicked Trump’s Twitter parlance, saying: “It is a tremendous honor to be a part of such a historic event even though the president has chosen not to attend this year. SAD!” Stand-up comic Minhaj has an upcoming hour-long special on Netflix and a regular “Daily Show” gig, but he’s certainly lower profile than previous WHCD headliners, who have in recent years included Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jay Leno and Joel McHale. Minhaj will also have a bit of

competition: Comic and prominent Trump critic Samantha Bee is hosting something of a rival event that same night, taping a special edition of her TBS show “Full Frontal” across town at the “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” taking place at the Willard Hotel. Organizers have spun the relatively low-glitz tone as an intentional return to what the dinner was always nominally about: celebrating the First Amendment and journalism, and raising money for scholarships. “It’s a different dinner,” Mason said. Minhaj “brings comedy chops but also heart.” EMILY HEIL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

@BYZELDRO, joining in on the hashtag #NewUnitedAirlinesMottos, where social media users shared possible slogans for United Airlines after its public relations fiasco involving the passenger who was dragged off a plane. Other potential mottos included, “Not enough seating? Time for a beating,” from @realitskenny and, “Enjoy a complimentary copy of SkyMaul,” tweeted by @Damon_Hanson. Someone even made a meme of how Southwest Airlines might respond to United’s woes, with an image of the company’s logo with the caption: “We beat our competitors. Not you.”

fear that something is over your head, but after a little reflection you’ll realize that you understand it quite well.

TODAY: Scattered showers most likely in the morning into midday as a cool front attempts to work through. There isn’t much moisture here, so we’re not expecting a whole lot of rain this time around. Clouds start to clear in the afternoon, and we end up with a reasonably nice high-temperature range through the 70s.

SELF-DEFENSE

He’s hoping she forgets to file charges

Someday, Nick will be asked about himself Nick Cannon on Monday commented on the breakup of his ex-wife Mariah Carey and her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. It had been rumored that the couple split because Tanaka was jealous of Carey’s closeness with Cannon. “Most men are jealous of me,” Cannon told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m joking. But I know nothing about it. For me, at the end of the day, she’s an amazing mother and we focus on our kids.” (EXPRESS)

TMZ published video of 50 Cent apparently punching a female fan during his tour stop on Saturday in Baltimore. In the video, taken during a performance with The Lox at Baltimore Soundstage, the rapper reaches into the crowd to greet fans. When a woman in a flowered dress grabs 50 Cent’s arm and pulls him off the stage, he responds by punching her in the chest to free himself. A member of the crew is seen pulling 50 Cent back onstage. They quickly resolve the uncomfortable moment: In the video, 50 asks the woman to join him onstage, where she later danced during the performance. She did not appear to be injured. (EXPRESS)

Gordon’s kids got caught watching ‘Top Chef’ once

John Mayer posed a question on his Instagram story Sunday night. “Okay, so here’s the deal,” he says in the video. “My skin is fine, I do an interview, they put makeup on to somehow get me ready for television. But then I get zits from the makeup!” In the video, he points to a blemish. He wrote in the caption, “Is there makeup that doesn’t make you break out?” (EXPRESS)

In an interview with The Telegraph, Gordon Ramsay said that when his family flies together, he sits with his wife in first class, while his four children travel coach. “At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not,” the “MasterChef” host said. “We’re really strict on that. … I say to the chief stewardess, ‘Make sure those little f---ers don’t come anywhere near us. I want to sleep on this plane.’ ” (EXPRESS)
