Duck’s Drinking Problem Accidentally Revealed Officials in Hawaii say a man tried to smuggle a live duck and two 40-ounce bottles of beer into a courthouse. Hawaii News Now reported Friday that officials at the Circuit Court in Oahu asked Michael Hubbard what was in his bag. When Hubbard didn’t say, officers escorted him outside, where he blurted out, “There’s a live duck in there!” Hubbard was allowed inside after asking security to hold his bag until after his appointment.

Gun Vote Comes Down to the Wire The 117th Boston Marathon starts at 10 a.m. today. Because of high temperatures last year, 2,300 runners opted to sit it out and run this year instead. About 27,000 are expected to run.

Meanwhile … A split developed in the usually united gun-rights lobby Sunday as a well-regarded Second Amendment organization enthusiastically endorsed compromise legislation proposed by Sens. Joe Manchin and Patrick Toomey that would expand background check requirements for gun sales, a position opposed by the powerful National Rifle Association. “We decided to back it because we believe it is the right thing to do,” said Julianne Versnel, director of operations for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. (AP)
Washington A bipartisan Senate proposal to expand background checks for gun buyers gained the backing of one Republican and the potential support of a second Sunday as sponsors said the vote expected this week was too close to call. The plan would “strengthen the background check system without in any way infringing on Second Amendment rights,” Maine Sen. Susan Collins said in a statement explaining her support. But she added that “it is impossible to predict at this point” what will be in a ﬁnal bill. Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has a B+ rating from the National Riﬂe Association, said he was “very favorably disposed” to the proposal that has emerged from Sens. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. “I appreciate their work,” McCain said. “And the American people want to do what we can to prevent these tragedies.” Collins and Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois are the only two Republicans besides Toomey who are expected to vote for the compromise as of now. It will take 60 votes to pass, meaning that more Republicans will have

Background-check bid gains GOP supporter, but is that enough?
Last week, Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., left, and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., unveiled a bipartisan compromise proposal on expanded background checks for gun buyers.
Expanding Gun Rights The proposal by Sens. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., actually includes language expanding firearms rights by easing some restrictions on transporting guns across state lines, protecting sellers from lawsuits if buyers passed a check but later used a gun in a crime and letting gun dealers conduct business in states where they don’t live. “If you are a law-abiding gun owner, you’re going to like this bill,” Manchin said. (AP)
to come on board because some Democrats from gun-friendly states are expected to oppose the measure. “It’s an open question as to whether or not we have the votes,” Toomey said. “I think it’s going to be close.” The measure requires background checks for people buying guns at gun shows and online. Background checks currently apply only to transactions handled by the country’s 55,000 licensed gun dealers. Private transactions, such as a sale of a gun between family members, would still be exempt. The compromise, if successful, would be added to broader gun-control legislation to strengthen laws against illegal gun trafﬁcking and to slightly increase school security aid. DINA CAPPIELLO (AP)

As test prices spike, officials look for a better alternative Kansas City, Mo.
Several dozen states are looking for an alternative to the GED high school equivalency test because of concerns that a new version coming out next year is more costly and will no longer be offered in a pencil-and-paper format. The responsibility for issuing high school equivalency certiﬁcates or diplomas rests with states, and they’ve relied on the General Education Development exam since soon after the test was created to help returning World War II veterans. But now 40 states and the District of Columbia are participating in a working group that’s considering what’s available besides the GED, and two test makers are hawking new exams.
Other Options The electronic version of the GED will cost $120 starting in January. Here are two alternatives states are choosing to switch to:
New York chose CTB/McGrawHill’s new Test Assessing Secondary Completion, which costs between $50 and $60. It will gradually move from paper-and-pencil to computer. New Hampshire and Montana are switching to the Educational Testing Service’s HiSET, which is $50 and offered on paper and computers. (AP)
“It’s a complete paradigm shift because the GED has been the monopoly,” said Amy Riker of the Educational Testing Service, which developed one of the alternative tests. Last month, New York, Montana and New Hampshire said they were switching to a new high school equivalency exam, and dozens of
others are exploring their options. The pushback comes as GED Testing Service prepares to introduce an electronic version of the exam in January, doubling the cost to $120. Developers say the new version is needed because nearly all states are adopting tougher math and reading standards to ensure students are prepared for college and careers. “The GED was in dangerous position of no longer being a reﬂection of what high schools were graduating,” said Randy Trask, president and CEO of GED Testing Service, which previously was solely operated by the nonproﬁt American Council on Education. He said students in pilot sites are passing the computerized version at higher rates than the paper version. For test-takers who fail a section, the computerized version provides details about what skills they need to work on before retaking the exam. HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH (AP)

U.S. Open to N. Korea Diplomacy The United States and Japan opened the door Sunday to new nuclear talks with North Korea if the country lowers tensions and honors past agreements. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said North Korea would ﬁnd “ready partners” in the United States if it began abandoning its nuclear program. Kerry’s message of openness to diplomacy was clear no matter how unlikely the chances that Kim Jong Un’s government would meet such conditions.

tion to a dispute concerning Japanese citizens abducted decades ago by North Korean ofﬁcials. The diplomats seemed to point at a possible revival of the sixnation talks that have been suspended for four years. China has long pushed for the process to resume without conditions. But the U.S. and allies South Korea and Japan fear rewarding North Korea for its belligerence and failed talks that have prolonged the crisis. While many of North Korea’s nuclear threats have been dismissed as bluster, U.S. and South Korea say the North in coming days may test a mid-range missile designed to reach as far as the U.S. territory of Guam.

The controversial Columbia Pike streetcar project, more than a decade in the making, will not get federal funding, officials with Arlington and Fairfax counties learned Friday, but they don’t know why. The Federal Transit Administration did not list the $250 million streetcar project on its 2014 Small Starts funding list, which was released Friday without explanation. Arlington had hoped for as much as $75 million for the project. “We are disappointed, no question about it, but we will not give up in searching for federal dollars,” said J. Walter Tejada, chairman of the Arlington County Board. “We might qualify for other federal funds … there’s some new state transportation funding. And it will be important for us to know why we were not selected.” The impact of federal sequestration on transportation funding could be the culprit. Tejada said the project will move forward. In fact, $80 million worth of street improvements along the Pike are underway, and a neighborhood redevelopment plan is also in the works. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell recently signed into law a 0.7 percent sales tax increase in Northern Virginia to fund transportation projects. “We are methodically executing a plan that has been developed

The proposed streetcar project — seen in this rendering — would run from the Skyline area of Fairfax County up Columbia Pike to Pentagon City.
Meanwhile … Metro said Friday that a train operator who was shown in an online photo using an electronic device while operating a train no longer works for the transit agency. Dan Stessel, a Metro spokesman, said the man stopped working at the transit agency March 27. Stessel would not say whether the man resigned or was fired, nor would Stessel explain why the man no longer works at Metro. On Friday, the train operator’s photo surfaced on the blog Unsuck DC Metro showing the operator using an electronic device while in the cab of a rail car. DANA HEDGPETH (THE WASHINGTON POST )
over the years with much community input,” Tejada said. “We will not give up.” Arlington County hoped to pay for the project with the FTA grant, $35 million in state funds and $35 million from Fairfax County in a mix of state and local funds. Arlington’s $104 million contribution would come from a commercial and industrial real-estate tax that can only be used for transportation and can’t be repurposed for other needs. The proposed streetcar project would run from the Skyline area of Fairfax County up Columbia Pike to Pentagon City, where it’s expected to connect to Metrorail.

Bridge Nears the End of Its Span Major repairs to the iconic structure could cost $250M
has been etched into the memory of Washington and the nation. But some of the drawbridge supports are heavily corroded. The elegant granite balustrades and benches are cracked and chipped. And the concrete and steel underpinnings of the bridge and sidewalks are severely deteriorated. “The bridge is … stable now,” said Charles Borders II, a Park Service transportation branch chief. But the Park Service has increased inspections, and if major repairs are not made, truck and bus trafﬁc could be banned within ﬁve years. Short-term repairs have been made twice in the past two years. But, “it’s so old now that … piecemeal approaches” are not enough, said Jon James, deputy superin-
Washington The Memorial Bridge hasn’t opened its draw span in more than 50 years. The old bridge hasn’t had a serious repair job in almost 40 years. And it has never undergone a major overhaul.

With its nine graceful arches, the low-slung neoclassical bridge

If the bridge was closed, trafﬁc would be diverted to other heavily traveled bridges across the Potomac River.

Tax Rebate Card Fees Draw Ire Richmond, Va.
a trend that they say is hindering those schools’ efforts to improve. One World hopes to enroll 300 diverse students, including those living in poverty and those who could afford to pay full freight at Sidwell but would prefer a public school. Besides One World, eight other applicants have submitted proposals for new charter schools to open in fall 2014. The charter board, which is scheduled to vote on those proposals May 20, usually approves just a few of the applications it considers.
As national Tax Day arrives, many taxpayers anticipate the refund they will receive after filing. But this year in Virginia, instead of a check, taxpayers will receive a debit card with their refund on it (or they can choose a direct deposit to their bank account). As with all debit cards, there can be fees. This has prompted some upset Virginians to ask: Why am I being charged a fee to collect my tax refund? “At best it’s unethical. At worst they’re stealing money,” said Eileen Tribble, of the Alexandria area, who had trouble transferring money off of the card, then was docked $2, twice, for phone calls trying to resolve the problem. The card is being administered by Xerox, and Virginia tax officials say the program is saving the commonwealth about $200,000. Xerox is not charging Virginia for the debit-card service, but the company is pocketing the fees.

Sidwell Friends, the topflight private school, has lent its support to a group of former students and faculty who are seeking to open a public charter school in D.C. The aspiring charter founders say they want One World Public Charter School to give middleschool students from across the city an opportunity to experience — for free — the caliber of education that costs $34,268 a year at the independent Quaker school. Charters have drawn leaders from high-ﬂying college-prep schools before. But it’s unusual for a brand-name private school to publicly endorse a start-up charter and to agree, as Sidwell has, to explore opportunities for a continuing relationship. Should One World win approval next month to open its doors in fall 2014, a public vote of conﬁdence from the school that educates President Barack Obama’s daughters could give it an immediate competitive advantage in a crowded District school marketplace.
A proposed charter school seeks to partner with the private Sidwell Friends, above.

Spotting Online Eyewear Deals 3 things to consider before buying your spectacles online
Take your career to the next level.
The Internet is using deep discounts and greater variety to entice a rapidly growing number of shoppers to purchase prescription eyeglasses online. Technology, however, hasn’t erased all of the advantages of buying glasses in a store. Here are some issues to consider:
1. Internet Options The University of Maryland’s Masters in Applied Economics gives you a professional advantage: a solid background in evidencebased quantitative analysis and evaluation for policy decisions. Designed for working professionals, this 10-course, 30-credit program can be completed in as little as 15 months. Evening classes are held at our DC location: 1400 16th Street NW, near DuPont Circle. The online application is available now for Fall 2013 enrollment.
Attend an Information Session Monday, May 13 at 6:30 pm at 1400 16th Street NW. Visit masters.econ.umd.edu or email email@example.com to RSVP.

Of the websites that sell eyewear in men’s and women’s styles, some feature well-known brands such as Oakley and Gucci. These sites include such established vendors as Framesdirect.com and 39dollarglasses.com and more recent entrants such as Warby Parker. These sites let customers scroll through hundreds of options and styles in different colors. Some, such as Framesdirect.com, allow visitors to upload pictures so they can see how a pair of glasses would look on their face. Retailer 1-800-Contacts will offer a three-dimensional version of this concept next month, when it launches a free app that enables users to virtually try on glasses
after taking a picture of their face with a smartphone or tablet.
2. Online Advantages Virtual vendors can offer page after page of variety. Framesdirect.com says on its website that it carries more than 100,000 products and 500 brands. 39dollarglasses.com features glasses that sell for $39, and Warby Parker advertises prescription glasses starting at $95. Convenience can be another beneﬁt. Warby Parker will send up to ﬁve pairs of glasses to a customer to try on at home for ﬁve days and then return with a pre-paid shipping label. 1-800-Contacts will send ﬁve frames and give customers seven days to try them.
3. The Limitations Online stores can’t connect customers with eyewear experts who can walk them through a purchase. And the initial cost for glasses advertised on a website may be a bargain, but extra fees for a strong prescription or tinted lenses can add to the bill. Online shoppers also may want to do a little research on their vendor before buying glasses. Find out how the vendor handles adjustments to a prescription or returns. Some sites offer money-back guarantees on returns if the glasses are sent back within a certain time frame. TOM MURPHY (AP)

A Makeover at Metro Riders, design critics Details on and Reaction to the New Look voice concerns over ON FUNDING AND PRIORITIES “WMATA needs equipment and people who actually After testing the $10M Bethesda new look for stations work. WMATA does not need Washington The iconic design of Metro’s rail stations, intended to echo the monuments that make up the capital landscape, is getting a modern makeover, ofﬁcials said last week. Stainless steel, bright lights and clear glass would supplant the soft lighting and dark colors that have the deﬁned the system since it was designed and built in the 1960s and 1970s. The proposed changes mark a striking departure for Metro, one that drew immediate critiques from preservationists — and more from riders over the weekend. The Bethesda station will be the prototype for the redesigned look. Metro said it will cost about $10 million to roll out the features there by mid-2015. The transit agency will then decide whether to extend the design to much or all of Metro’s 86-station system. Online, the announcement stirred some of the transit agency’s critics, who said the rail system’s
prototype, the transit agency will decide whether to extend it. Modernization across much or all of the Metro system could cost tens of millions of dollars, said Metro spokesman Dan Stessel.
ON THE DESIGN
Concrete walls around stairwells would be replaced with glass and steel. Station managers would have smaller kiosks with digital panels to give train information. Brown station-name posts would be replaced with higher directional signs “making it easier to see,” according to a Metro video. Some posts would have digital signs providing train arrival information.
ON THE LIGHTING
Metro’s video of the makeover shows more lighting in stations and around platform signs. Metro General Manager Richard Sarles said that stations will be “much brighter,” allowing riders to “make it through stations more easily.”
a botox injection.” — @JA SONFRIT Z1 ON TWITTER
Bethesda riders “should be delighted that finally the ‘powers that be’ will be doing something substantial to improve the physical appearance and technical functioning of the Bethesda Metro.” — BERNIE FISK EN ON PATCH.COM
“Stainless steel was ‘modern’ ten years ago. In Idaho. Maybe. And given how filthy many Metro stations are, even in near-darkness, I wonder how they expect to keep stainless and glass clean. As a concept, it’s right up there with outdoor escalators.”
“The fact remains that the 70s Brown and Orange color scheme is U-G-L-Y! It’s dark (and therefore unsafe), it’s dated, and the brass makes the stations smell funny. It quite literally looks like *ahem* — ‘solid waste.’ ” — DRE W DA NE ON WASHINGTONPOST.COM
— THE MIGHT Y UPSE T TER ON WASHINGTONPOST.COM
“Somehow everyone screaming at #WMATA to replace light bulbs in stations turned into a $10M one-station makeover.” — @FIX W M ATA ON TWITTER
“Safety? There are security cameras practically every two feet. People who think the lights are dim enough to be a serious crime hazard are rather dim themselves.” — CSD36 ON WASHINGTONPOST.COM
Metro officials said they chose Bethesda as the pilot for the makeover because the station’s escalators are scheduled to be replaced early next year and because the current design of the station limits the ability to add lighting.
performance, not its aesthetics, should be the focus. The agency is in the throes of an expensive and disruptive effort to reconstruct its long-neglected rail infrastructure, and this year, Metro outlined a multibillion-dollar plan to expand the system over the next few decades. Historic preservationists and transit historians had their own critiques, saying the new design will compromise the distinctive design that emerged from years of debate. Metro’s original designers used concrete, granite and bronze because the materials evoked the grandeur of the capital’s monuments and gave Metro an appearance that was unique among the nation’s subway systems.
67% The amount of Washington Post readers who called Metro’s plan unnecessary, according to a poll at washingtonpost.com. Thirty-three percent of the 935 people who took the poll chose: “Finally. It’s about time and long overdue.” (T WP)
“Every generation has the impulse to make it brighter, but that’s like taking a Victorian storefront and slapping aluminum siding on it,” said Robert Bruegmann, the author of a book on Metro’s principal architect, Harry Weese. “You can’t be too careful,” Bruegmann said of making changes to the look of Metro. “We’re talking about [changes] to the greatest public space in the nation’s capital.” Zachary M. Schrag, author of “The Great Society Subway” — a history of Metro — agreed. “Putting in a lot of stainless steel strikes me as a pretty signiﬁcant departure from Metro’s design,” he said. “I would describe it as a sacrifice of an important work of 20th-century architecture.” Dan Stessel, a Metro spokesman, said the agency’s in-house architects came up with the new look for the Bethesda prototype and said Metro plans to “engage and consult” with the ﬁne arts and capital planning commissions.

Australian Adam Scott birdied the par-4 18th hole, then went on to beat Angel Cabrera in a playoff to win the Masters at Augusta National on Sunday.
Payoff in Playoff for Scott 32-year-old becomes the 1st Australian to win the Masters Golf Adam Scott became the ﬁrst Australian to win the Masters, beating Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a playoff on a soggy Sunday at Augusta National. The Masters went to a suddendeath playoff for the second year in a row when Scott and Cabrera made matching birdies on the 72nd hole. They both made par on the ﬁrst extra hole, returning to No. 18, before Scott rolled in a 12-footer on No. 10 for birdie to win it.
Scott pumped his ﬁsts in the air, screaming toward the gray, darkening sky, and embraced caddie Steve Williams, who was on the bag for 13 of Tiger Woods’ 14 major titles. For Scott, 32, this is the ﬁrst, making up for his major meltdown at last year’s British Open, where he bogeyed the last four holes to lose by a stroke to Ernie Els. “I found my way today,” Scott said. Scott, playing in the next-tolast group, made a 20-foot putt at 18 and celebrated with Williams as if it were over. Cabrera, in the ﬁnal group, watched from the fairway knowing he had to hit a brilliant shot. He did. Cabrera’s ball pulled up 3 feet
One for the Ages Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese golfer, wrapped up a memorable debut at Augusta National by shooting a 3-over 75 on Sunday, his experience not dampened in the least by a debated one-stroke penalty for slow play. “It’s such a great week for me,” said Guan, the youngest player to make the cut at a major in the PGA era. “I learned a lot.” (AP)
from the cup for an easy birdie that sent the two players to the playoff tied at 9-under 279. “That’s how golf is,” said Cabrera, who was denied his third major title. “I had some issues during the course but I came back.” Another Australian, Jason Day, had the lead until he bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes. He ﬁnished two strokes out of the playoff at 281. Woods, the over whelming favorite, came up short again. He hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, or any major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods struggled with the putter on the front side, then missed a birdie try at No. 16 that could have put some pressure on the leaders.

Long Recovery Ahead: Kobe Bryant had surgery Saturday on his torn Achilles tendon, ending his season with two games left in the Los Angeles Lakers’ playoff chase. Lakers trainer Gary Vitti thinks Bryant will need at least six to nine months for recovery. Given Bryant’s history of swift comebacks from countless minor injuries, Vitti and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak both believe he could be back for their season opener in the fall. (AP)

Nationals Forget about last year. This season, the Atlanta Braves are looking like the team to beat in the NL East. Justin Upton and Andrelton Simmons homered, and the Braves cruised to their ninth-straight victory Sunday, beating Washington 9-0 to complete a three-game sweep of the defending division champion Nationals. Chr is Johnson had four hits and two RBIs for t he Braves, who received a sparkling pitching performance from Paul Maholm.

Ross Detwiler 0-0, 0.69 ERA
Ricky Nolasco 0-1, 3.12 ERA
Who’s Hot? Ross Detwiler, Nats: The left-hander has allowed just one run in 13 innings pitched, but the Nats’ fifth starter is still looking for his first victory. Placido Polanco, Marlins: The veteran third baseman has seven hits in his past five games.
Who’s Not? Ryan Zimmerman, Nats: The third baseman had just two hits in 12 at-bats to go along with three errors in the threegame series versus the Braves. Juan Pierre, Marlins: Miami’s leadoff hitter went 1-for-11 in the series versus the Phillies and has one walk all season.
How They Match Up THROUGH SUNDAY’S GAMES
posed to be pretty good, so it was good to make a statement early,” Simmons said. “Let them know we’re going to be tough to beat.” In compiling the best record in the majors, the Braves (11-1) have outscored the opposition 62-23 and built a 20-6 advantage in home runs. “It’s early,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “I don’t think we’re going to play .998 baseball the rest of the way, but it sure is better than 1-11.”
Washington has lost seven straight to Atlanta, dating back to last year. The ﬁnal game of this series was a stark contrast to the other two. “We should have won the ﬁrst one. We were right there on the second,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “We just got waffled today. I don’t put too much stock in it.” Gonzalez yielded seven runs and seven hits in ﬁve innings for
the Nationals, who won 98 games a year ago to Atlanta’s 94. “I take the blame on this one 100 percent,” the left-hander said. “The Braves right now are running hot. They’re red-hot right now. You got to give them the credit. They’re a tough hitting lineup and a good rotation.” Gonzalez came in with an 0.82 ERA in two starts, but he struggled from the outset in this one.

A Cinematic Melting Pot In the 27 years of Filmfest DC history, the lineups have changed but the motivation remains the same. “If people limited their diet of moviegoing to Hollywood,” says festival founder Tony Gittens, “they’d be missing incredible treasures from around the world.” Over the years, Gittens has honed his eye for selections that would appeal to a D.C. audience, including last year’s festival closer, the French feel-good ﬁlm “The Intouchables.” This year’s festival, which began last Thursday and wraps up April 21, kicked off with “Underground,” a nail-biting look at the young life of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The lineup, with more than 80 movies from around the globe, includes recent Oscar nominee “Kon-Tiki” and an adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s “Midnight’s Children,” which will be followed by a talk with the author and director Deepa Mehta. Here are a few other ﬁlms to consider. (For a full schedule and ticketing information, visit Filmfestdc.org.) STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST )
This year, Filmfest DC features a number of espionage and crime dramas as part of its “Trust No One” series. This Danish procedural thriller, which earned raves on the festival circuit, follows the uneasy negotiations that unfold after a ship is taken hostage in the Indian Ocean by Somali pirates. Today & Tue. at Landmark E Street Cinema.
THE ‘PARADISE’ TRILOGY 2
Ulrich Seidl’s “Paradise: Love” (shown), “Paradise: Faith” and “Paradise: Hope” are “not about human beings at their best,” Gittens says. Rather, they focus on a middle-aged woman on a promiscuous trip through Africa, a selfflagellating Catholic medical technician, and a woman who takes her teenage niece to a fat camp. They’re all hard to watch, but you won’t be able to look away. Through Sat. at Landmark E Street Cinema.
Not all of the festival’s movies are heavy. The first Nepalese movie in Filmfest DC history is part of the “Lighter Side” series of comedies. This road trip film is about a busload of passengers desperately trying to go in different directions. Things get all the more tense — and hilarious — with each new obstacle. Tue. & Wed. at the Goethe-Institut; director Deepak Rauniyar will be on hand to discuss the film.
Although the British heist genre automatically conjures images of Guy Ritchie’s filmography, the first feature from writerdirector Rowan Athale has an artful style all his own, with the requisite twists and turns. This carefully paced thriller, about an ex-con who leaves jail with payback on his mind, got good marks at the Toronto Film Festival. Today & Wed. at the Avalon Theatre.

MOST HATED CLOTHING ITEM: Says Rudy: “Why does anyone need a ‘Game of Thrones’ T-shirt, much less three?” MOST STUPID FIGHT: “Arguing over how to work an electric salt shaker,” Chad says.

“There’s nothing that says a comic book superheroine like Wonder Woman can’t join the league of marketable female fictional characters next to women like Katniss Everdeen and Ellen Ripley. Just don’t remind anyone in Hollywood about 1984’s ‘Supergirl.’ ” — SUJAY KUMAR AT THEDAILYBEAST .COM’S WOMEN IN THE WORLD BLOG
wonders why the DC Comics character, who has been around for more than 70 years, hasn’t been the lead of a major motion picture yet.
“SNL is making fun of ‘Accidental Racist’ yet they did blackface in the first sketch. … okay …” — @DRCORTON thought “Saturday Night Live” sent mixed messages on its show this weekend when parodying LL Cool J and Brad Paisley’s widely criticized song after using Bill Heder in blackface earlier in the show.
“Pharrell and Daft Punk?! YES.” — @DEBBI_CAKES reacts
to a video teaser of a collaboration between the two. The “Get Lucky” clip was released Saturday for Daft Punk’s new album, “Random Access Memories,” due out May 21.
“Sasha Fierce could eat Dana Perino whole and still have room left over to snack on the corpses of the long-forgotten lesser members of Destiny’s Child. Don’t start no stuff won’t be no stuff, Fox News.” — SNIPY AT WONKETTE.COM couldn’t understand
why Fox News commentator Dana Perino seemingly took a swipe at Beyonce when she did a mock rap inspired by Jay-Z’s “Open Letter,” in which he addressed lawmakers criticizing his trip to Cuba.
Improve depressive symptoms faster?
“Add ‘britches’ to ‘slacks’ and ‘trousers’ on the list of preferred synonyms for ‘pants’ that always make me laugh.” — @JERODMORRIS offers up
some old-school terms in men’s fashion.
Where Innovation is Tradition
Eﬀective medications for treating depression can take weeks or months to achieve their full eﬀects. NIH researchers seek depressed persons ages 18-65 (unipolar or bipolar) to enroll in a research study involving an experimental drug when compared to placebo. The study seeks to better understand and evaluate the mechanisms in the brain that are related to rapid antidepressant improvement. This is a 6-to 8-week outpatient and inpatient research study. Research is conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Understanding how the rapid reduction of symptoms works may help us design better antidepressants.

PAR SCORE 195-205, BEST SCORE 271
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can work cooperatively with another today while still holding true to your own ideals and working toward a very private goal. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’re looking for the best possible price for something that is indispensable to you — but you must be ready to pay for the quality you need. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Specifics make all the difference today — in what you say and in what you hear. You don’t want to miss anything, certainly! CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be surprised by someone who is closer to you today than expected. He or she knows just how to get a rise out of you!
Friday’s Solution Need more Sudoku? Find another puzzle in the Comics section of The Post every Sunday and in the Style section Monday through Saturday.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Yes, it’s time to make a decision one way or the other — and you know just what lies in the balance. Don’t wait another day longer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may have to wait longer than you thought before getting the information you need to move forward with a new project. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Are you really ready to go? That’s the question you must answer today — and there are many more sides than you might think. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The meaning you discover inside a secret message today has you shifting plans and looking forward to something quite unusual for you.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
Today: Mostly cloudy today. Partly cloudy
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) What you want is not the problem, but rather how to get it. Someone is standing in your way — and not likely to budge!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You have been holding yourself back for some reason, but today you are likely to be required to approach things with increased energy.
POOCH CAFE | PAUL GILLIGAN
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may not be getting the messages from another in a timely manner. No one is at fault, but you can do something to alleviate the problem.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are passionate about the things that are going on at this time, but today you may have to take a break and stock up on supplies.
