Ambitious Goat Aims for Part in ‘Scary Movie 6’ Police in Tennessee were called to a scene after someone called 911 reporting a “man screaming for help,” only to find a lonely goat. The U.K. website Orange News reported Tuesday that police found the goat tied to a post in Putnam County bleating loudly. Carlos Mendez, who owns the goat, had separated him from the herd. “I guess he didn’t want to be alone,” Mendez said. (AP) OPPORTUNITIES

Immigration Bill Scrutinized Both sides ﬁnd issues they disagree with in bipartisan measure Washington To some conservatives, it’s amnesty. To some immigration advocates, it’s unnecessarily punitive. The Senate’s new bipartisan immigration bill drew criticism from the right and from the left Tuesday — convincing members of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” who wrote it that they’re on the right track. “This has something for everybody to hate,” said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
“Gabe ran toward Gabby and toward the other victims … toward danger. This room will always remind us of his devotion.” — MARK KELLY, ALONG WITH HIS WIFE, FORMER REP.

Said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.: “No one gets everything they want.” Schumer and another leader of the effort, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., met with President Barack Obama on Tuesday to brief him on the bill, a top second-term priority for the president. Obama issued a statement after the meeting supporting the Senate effort and urging action. “This bill is clearly a compromise, and no one will get everything they wanted, including me,” he said. “But it is largely consistent with the principles that I have repeatedly laid out for comprehensive reform.” The legislation would dramatically remake the U.S. immigration

system, ushering in new visa programs for low- and high-skilled workers, requiring a tough new focus on border security, instituting a new requirement for all employers to check the legal status of their workers, and installing a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. Senators were aiming to file
the legislation by Tuesday evening, but a press event to roll it out was delayed until later in the week in the wake of the Boston bombings. Meanwhile, the bill was getting support from business, labor, immigration rights groups and others. Many were eager to rally behind legislation that they see as representing the best chance for Congress to enact meaningful reforms. “I don’t think there’s anybody out there that can say this is my dream legislation,” said Clarissa Martinez, director of immigration at National Council of La Raza. “But I think that it’s important to keep the whole in perspective and where we’re trying to go.” ERICA WERNER (AP)
U.S. Resorted to Torture After 9/11, Report Shows New York A nonpartisan commission’s review of America’s anti-terrorism response after the 9/11 attacks reported Tuesday that it is “indisputable” the United States engaged in the practice of torture and the Bush White House bears responsibility. The report by the Constitution Project is an ambitious review of the Bush administration’s approach to the problems of holding detainees, interrogation and counterintelligence after the Sept. 11, 2001,
More Findings The Constitution Project report says brutality has occurred in war before, “But there is no evidence there had ever before been the kind of considered and detailed discussions that occurred after September 11 … on some detainees in our custody.” The review also found “There is no firm or persuasive evidence that the widespread use of harsh interrogation techniques by U.S. forces produced significant information of value.” (AP)

The report surveyed the ways in which prisoners were held and interrogated at Guantanamo Bay, in Afghanistan and Iraq, and at secret CIA “black prisons.” The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W.

Gun Bill Proposal in Jeopardy Washington Republican opposition is growing to a bipartisan Senate plan for expanding background checks for firearms buyers, enough to put the proposal’s fate in jeopardy. The Senate continued debating a wide-ranging gun-control bill Tuesday, with the focus on a background check compromise struck last week between Sens. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. Manchin said the vote on that amendment was likely to be delayed to late in the week, a move that would give both sides more time to win over supporters. Underscoring the bargaining underway, the two sponsors seemed

The change might help win support from senators from Alaska and perhaps North Dakota, said the aides and lobbyist, who spoke on condition of anonymity. From a group of 16 GOP senators whom gun-control advocates have considered possible allies, at least nine have now said they oppose the background check compromise and one said he is leaning against it. Combined with the 31 senators who voted against debating the overall gun bill last week, that could bring potential opponents of expanding background checks to 41 — just enough votes to block the Senate from considering the compromise.

Clashes erupt as opposition demands recount in Venezuela Caracas, Venezuela Venezuela’s president-elect blamed the opposition Tuesday for seven deaths and 61 injuries that the government claims have occurred in disturbances protesting his election, and he accused the U.S. of organizing the unrest. “ T he [U. S.] emba ss y ha s ﬁnanced and led all these violent acts,” President-elect Nicolas Maduro, the chosen heir of the late Hugo Chavez, said in a televised meeting. Earlier, Maduro said he would not allow an opposition protest march called for today in Caracas. But he summoned his own supporters to take to the streets in the capital. Opposition candidate Henrique Capriles accused the government of being behind the violence. But government ofﬁcials have been alleging since Monday that Capriles is plotting a coup.

Maduro’s accusation against Washington came after the U.S. State Department said it would not recognize the results of Sunday’s unexpectedly close election without the recount that is being demanded by Capriles. In Chavez’s home state of Barinas, police ﬁred tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters heeding Capriles’ call for protests. Chief prosecutor Luisa Ortega said 135 people had been detained. Opposition leaders repor ted 30 arrests Tuesday. Ortega also said seven people had been killed. On Monday, thousands of students clashed with National Guard troops as people across the nation banged on pots and pans to reject the National Electoral Council’s ratification of Maduro’s victory without a recount.

A woman tries on a burqa in Kabul, Afghanistan, where the cloaks are less popular.
Modernity Unravels Afghan Burqa Sales Kabul, Afghanistan The homespun Afghan burqa is under siege from east and west these days, between price competition from China and Western influences that are leading many urban women to exchange the fullbody cloak for a headscarf. The decline is most noticeable in Kabul, the capital, where women began adopting Western dress soon after the 2001 U.S.-led invasion ousted the Taliban. Demand for burqas appears strongest in the provinces, where families and conservative warlords enforce a stricter Islamic code. Alim Nazery, who has traded in burqas in Kabul for 27 years, said he sold at least 50 burqas a day when the Taliban were in charge. Now he says he sells 20 a day. In his store, Afghan-made burqas cost about $20 to $60. Chinese-made ones: $10 to $15. Clothiers say demand is declining as women go to school and take

ofﬁce jobs — pursuits that were impossible during the Taliban’s ﬁve-year rule. But women’s rights activists caution against reading too much into the burqa situation. They say it’s the least of their problems as they continue to battle such issues as domestic violence. “Freedom from … the burqa does not mean the real liberalization of women,” said Selay Ghaffar of the Humanitarian Assistance for Women and Children of Afghanistan. She said she even wears a burqa when traveling in insecure areas. KIM GAMEL (AP)

“No amount of security and intelligence gathering is ever going to make us perfectly safe. This is an open society, not a police state, not yet at least, and so the best response to a tragedy such as the one in Boston is to go on with your life, eyes open.” — POST REPORTER JOEL ACHENBACH, ON HOW AMERICA SHOULD RESPOND IN THE WAKE OF MONDAY’S BOMBINGS AT
THE BOSTON MARATHON
Investigators examine the site of the second bombing on Boylston Street in Boston on Tuesday, a day after grisly attacks struck the Boston Marathon.
A Race Turned War Zone
Bombs similar to IEDs were behind carnage at Boston Marathon’s finish Boston Andrew Ulrich has not been to war, but he now knows its toll on human ﬂesh, the damage that bits of metal can wreak when packed tightly in bombs and aimed low at unprotected civilians nearby. The physician saw the results Monday, not in Baghdad or Kabul, but in the emergency room at Boston Medical Center, where he and his colleagues frantically treated injury after horriﬁc injury to the legs and feet of 23 victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The two bombs blew up about 10 seconds and around 100 yards apart Monday near the ﬁnish line of the 26.2-mile race, tearing off limbs and leaving the streets stained with blood and strewn with glass.
At Boston Medical and many of the other hospitals where the wounded were treated, scores had suffered wounds from BB-sized pellets and nails, as well as metal debris, blasted into tissue and bone at close range. “Almost all the injuries are in the lower extremities. Think of this like an IED,” said Michael Zinner, chief of surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where 31 more victims were treated. The disproportionate number of leg injuries has convinced some experts that the pressure-cooker bombs were on the ground or not high above it in the trash cans where authorities have said they were hidden. The carnage has convinced some that the bomber’s main goal was to injure as many as possible.
The Victims Martin Richard, 8, was among the dead, said Rep. Stephen Lynch, a family friend. The boy’s mother, Denise, and 6-year-old sister, Jane, were badly injured. His brother and father were also present but were not hurt. Contrary to initial reports, Bill Richard did not run in the marathon. Instead, the family went to the finish line to watch together, as they had done for several years, friends said.
Krystle Campbell, 29, the second confirmed victim killed Monday, was at the marathon watching with a friend. She died on the scene of the explosion. But in a cruel case of mistaken identity, for many hours Monday and Tuesday, friends and family thought she was being treated for a serious leg injury. Campbell had given her photo ID to a friend to hold; it was the friend who had the leg injury.
A third victim was a Boston University graduate student, according to USA Today, but had not yet been identified as of Express’ deadline. (T WP/AP)
The estimated number of people injured
by the bombings Monday near the finish of the Boston Marathon. Dozens remain hospitalized Tuesday with broken bones, shredded muscles and head injuries. At least a dozen people lost at least one limb, and 17 are listed in critical condition, including a 9-year-old and 10-year-old. (AP)
“This is more akin to what we see in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Richard Neville, chief of vascular surgery at George Washington University Medical Center. “They’re meant to maim and not kill.” Similar pressure-cooker explosives have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a July 2010 intelligence report by the FBI and Homeland Security. Also, one of the three devices used in the May 2010 Times Square attempted bombing was a pressure cooker, the report said. “Placed carefully, such devices provide little or no indication of an impending attack,” the report said. Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsibility for the bombings, which took place at the world’s best-known distance race. “We will go to the ends of the Earth to identify the subject or subjects who are responsible for this despicable crime, and we will do everything we can to bring them to justice,” said Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston. He said investigators had received “voluminous tips” and were interviewing witnesses. Boston police and firefighter unions announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to arrests.

Boston Bombing Aftermath
D.C. Boosts Security in Wake of Attack Expect to see more people in uniform, a greater display of lawenforcement firepower and increased efforts to inspect backpacks and purses. A day after bombings in Boston, armed guards were out Tuesday at all of the places in Washington considered possible targets. Police were on nearly every corner along Pennsylvania Avenue all the way to the Capitol, and Metro said it had extra K9 units and police at stations, pictured above. Still, what Monday’s attack means for D.C. in the long term is hard to say. (THE WASHINGTON POST ) FACT VS. FICTION
Since Monday’s bombings, multiple media reports have mentioned a Saudi national who was questioned by police. The Saudi, who is recuperating at a Boston hospital, is in his 20s and is in the U.S. on a Saudi scholarship to study at a university in the Boston area. Some reports have identified him as a suspect in the bombing, but law enforcement officials said he is regarded as a witness, not a suspect. Also Tuesday, Gov. Deval Patrick said that contrary to earlier reports, no unexploded bombs were found. (T WP)
INTERNE T WATCH
Websites Step In As Conspiracies Fly Conspiracy theories cropped up almost immediately Monday on the Internet as events unfolded in Boston. Gawker.com compiled a slew of them into a guide: One theory tracked the movements of a man on a nearby roof, another suggested that “victims of the bombings were ‘crisis actors,’ hired by the government. … Just like at Sandy Hook.” Others tried to keep conspiracies off the Internet. Bostonmarathon conspiracies.com produces a white screen and a message: “I bought this domain to keep some conspiracy theory kook from owning it.” (E XPRESS)

Saudi Man Not Suspect; No Police Detonations
Focus Renews on Use Of ‘Terrorist’ in Crisis The word became a political issue in last year’s campaign. But President Barack Obama and his staff still appear to be puzzling over when — and how — to call an attack a “terrorist” act and when to wait for a clear determination of the motives behind one. Hours after the Boston Marathon bombing Monday, Obama did not characterize the attack as terrorism. Not long after, a senior White House official emailed reporters to make clear that the attack “will be approached as an act of terror.” White House officials said the evidence must be definitive for the president to use the term when addressing the nation. The flexibility available to White House officials, though, allowed the administration to clarify. By Tuesday morning, Obama acknowledged that the FBI “is investigating [the attacks] as an act of terrorism.” (T WP)

Heed the Construction Junction As roadwork has increased, so have wrecks, official says Washington As the nation’s top highway official took to a D.C. street corner Tuesday to publicize the problem, almost 40 percent of highway contractors reported that they have had drivers plow into their construction sites. Federal Highway Administrator Victor Mendez, speaking at 21st and M streets in Northwest, made his plea for drivers to take it easy at work zones. Construction zone
safety has become a major issue in recent years as aging roadways and federal stimulus funding resulted in plethora of work zones. Most states, with Maryland near the forefront, have been aggressive in policing the zones with speed cameras. Though the emphasis placed by Mendez and by the Associated General Contractors of America was on protection of work crews, experts say drivers and their passengers make up the majority of work-zone deaths. When drivers fail to slow as a work zone alters the trafﬁc pattern, they lose control of their vehi-
Cash Guzzler Some small businesses are trying to figure out how they will make ends meet in the face of impending gas-tax hikes. In Maryland, gas taxes are expected to increase by about 4 cents a gallon starting in July. By mid-2016, they are estimated to rise by 13 to 20 cents per gallon. Virginia has approved plans to convert the pennies-per-gallon formula to a 3.5 percent tax on the wholesale price. It is expected to cost most drivers about $15 more each month — but the toll will be far higher for companies that rely on vehicles. (T WP)
cles. In 2011, the most recent year for which data are available, 587 people died in highway work-zone accidents — an increase of 11 fatalities over the previous year. “When you see construction signs and orange barrels, take your foot off the gas, put the phone down and keep your eyes on the road,” said Mike Hoover of the contractors association. He added that 46 percent of contractors surveyed said drivers or passengers were among those injured during workzone crashes last year.

Local Special Election Preview A three-part look at the candidates in the D.C. Council special election April 23. Six contenders are vying to fill Phil Mendelson’s seat.
Republican Ward 1 representative to the D.C. State Board of Education
DC Statehood Green Party Social justice activist
What is the single biggest problem or issue in the District right now?
What is the single biggest problem or issue in the District right now?
Education reform and ethics. We can’t fix our schools if District government is broken.
Gentrification. Because of its divisive nature and it roots in racism, its tentacles reach into many facets of our social structure: economics, social relationships, value systems. It causes pain and destabilization at one extreme and great pride and conquest on the other — the material that wars are made of. Just like a human body, the whole cannot be healthy and effective if an extremity is injured.
What is the most promising trend that you see happening in the city? Employment growth. Though there are still too many District residents who are in need of a good job, the trend is moving in the right direction. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
Why is this election important? Every election is important. People need to vote. The D.C. Council will make decisions about how billions of dollars are spent and it will write laws that impact every District resident. I hope more people get engaged through voting and also by engaging elected officials. Our Democracy does not function properly when people are not involved in government.
Still on the Ballot Michael A. Brown, the former D.C. Council member who withdrew from the special election two weeks ago, will still have his name on the April 23 ballot. His late decision meant the D.C. Board of Elections could not remove his name from paper ballots or voting machines for Election Day.
Coming Thursday: Elissa Silverman and Paul Zukerberg At Readexpress.com: Responses from Anita Bonds and Matthew Frumin
What is the most promising trend that you see happening in the city? I have many choices, from our vibrant nightlife to our cultural diversity. But for the sake of zeroing in, I would say the city’s slow but sure transition to hybrid-electric vehicles throughout the city. I believe that it is extremely difficult to find any Washingtonian opposed to green alternatives — regardless of ward or political loyalty. Going green affects health, psyche and the economy — all facets that enhance quality of life.
Why is this election important? Because of the opportunity the city has to divert from old, infectious behaviors that have become normal: skirting the rules, favoritism, cronyism, factionism, nontransparency or outright inequality. Starting with this 13th seat on the council, we can either elect someone who will stand against all that has harmed us or elect a representative who will do as we have done before while expecting a different result. My vision is that we’ll do it different and get it right!
The amount that Democrat Anita Bonds raised over the past month, more than any other candidate. Republican Patrick Mara has the most money left to spend in the final week of campaigning, with $82,676 remaining in his war chest. (T WP)

D.C. Parade Marches On Emancipation Day festivities take place under more security
A day after a bomb attack in Boston brought America together, District residents gathered to celebrate an act of freedom and protest their lack of statehood. Under heightened security measures, Emancipation Day celebrations in D.C. continued as planned on Pennsylvania Avenue on Tuesday. The event marked the 151st anniversary of the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act of 1862, which ended slavery for residents of the city and freed 3,100 individuals. And it was a time for many to promote their political causes, including statehood for D.C.
D.C. resident Natale Stracuzzi shows a modified U.S. flag, with one extra star for D.C.
Natale Stracuzzi, a Ward 8 resident, sat along the parade route with his 51-star version of the U.S. ﬂag with one star larger than the others, which he is lobbying to make the city’s new ﬂag. “We have to make a different approach to become that 51st state,” Stracuzzi said. “The mayor says this is one city, I say this is one
ﬁght. Without everybody involved in this, it will not happen.” For D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the sizeable turnout signaled success. “It shows that people haven’t been scared off by Boston,” she said while walking in the parade. “Our hearts are there, but our search for freedom is here in the District.” CLINTON YATES (EXPRESS)
Smithsonian to Close Some Charter Board Galleries Because of Cuts Rejects BASIS’
Plan to Expand
Budget cuts from Congress will soon reduce the number of free exhibitions on view each day at the Smithsonian Institution and will force unpaid leave for U.S. Park Police officers, agency officials told Congress on Tuesday. Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough testiﬁed that the museum complex can’t keep all galleries open at once and will begin rolling gallery closures after May 1. Facing a $41 million reduction in its budget, the Smithsonian is cutting some education programs and will also likely postpone or cancel some exhibits for 2014 and 2015, Clough said.

The D.C. Public Charter School Board on Monday rejected a request from BASIS DC to expand. The charter won approval to open doors in D.C. in 2012 despite questions about whether its model – which launches students into Advanced Placement courses starting in middle school – would work for struggling D.C. students. The school received city funding for 443 students, but nearly 10 percent have left the school. It touches on broader debates about education funding and whether traditional schools end up serving as a safety net for challenging students who leave charters. The board granted nine schools permission to expand, increasing enrollment next year by a combined total of more than 1,300 students. EMMA BROWN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Sports Road Numbers The good, the bad and the ugly from the Washington Wizards’ 2012-13 season:
Teams that beat the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center this season. Since the Wizards won 112-108 in Denver on Jan. 18, the Nuggets haven’t lost at home — winning 22 straight.
ROB CARR/GETTY IMAGES
Road victories for the Wizards against the three worst teams in the Eastern Conference — the Magic, Bobcats and Cavaliers. Washington was 0-6 on the road against the only three teams below them in the standings.
John Wall and Bradley Beal — who are 22 and 19, respectively — were the Wizards’ two leading scorers this season. They combined to average 32.3 points a game.
Preview of What’s to Come
With Wall and Beal, Wizards have a solid core for the future Wizards
Another Wizards season comes to an end tonight in Chicago. On the surface, it doesn’t look much different than any of the desultory season finales that have taken place over the past four years, with Washington playing out the string of a sub-30-win campaign while jockeying for lottery position. SEASON FINALE 8 P.M. Today | CSN
A closer look, however, reveals that the 2012-13 season is ending with something long-suffering Wizards fans have been clamoring for — hope. Yes, Washington is staggering to
The Wizards have been a completely different team since point guard John Wall returned from a knee injury on Jan. 12. (E XPRESS)
Record: 5-28 Points per game: 89.24 Points allowed per game: 97.24 Longest winning streak: 1 game Longest losing streak: 12 games

the ﬁnish, having lost ﬁve straight games, but over the second half of the season the Wizards showed the kind of promise and potential that may ﬁnally signal the rebirth of the franchise. “We’ve seen what we can do with a full complement of players,” coach Randy Wittman said. “For us, that’s important. We’ve seen a lot of positive things with a healthy group, and that’s encouraging.” Injuries plagued the Wizards this year, whether it was big man Nene, rookie guard Bradley Beal or former No. 1 pick John Wall. But
when they all — or at least two of the three — played together, the results showed a team capable of playing with the NBA’s best. Without Wall, who is only 22 years old, the Wizards were 5-28, including the 0-12 start that essentially doomed the season. With the point guard, Washington is 24-24, and playing .500 ball in the Eastern Conference is usually good enough to make the playoffs. The Wizards also showed an impressive ability to play well against the league’s best, posting victories against Miami, Oklahoma
City, New York and Denver while ﬁnishing with 22 home wins. “We want to make home a very special place and make it very hard to come in here and win,” forward Martell Webster said. “Sometimes it’s difficult when you look into the stands against some of the top teams and see a lot more of the opponent’s jerseys than our own, but we love that. We fuel off of that.” Webster was another bright spot for the Wizards this season. The eight-year vet is averaging a careerhigh in points (11.4 per game) while giving Washington a serious outside threat to go along with Beal. As for the 19-year-old rookie from Florida, his year was ﬁlled with the typical ups and downs of a young player. Before being shelved by a stress injury to his right ﬁbula, Beal averaged 13.9 points a game and won Eastern Conference rookie of the month honors in December and January.
Wizards road wins all season. Only the Bobcats’ 6-35 record away from home is worse than Washington’s 7-33 mark. It’s the third-straight year the Wizards failed to reach double-digit wins on the road. (E XPRESS)
“I’m very proud of what I was able to accomplish, the strides I’ve made,” Beal said. “I’m definitely satisﬁed with where I am now, but there’s a lot more work to do.” The same can be said for the Wizards, who will add another young piece into the mix in the draft but will have to make tough offseason calls, particularly with Webster, who will be a free agent. They’ll also have to get better at beating bad teams (the Wizards were 3-12 against the dregs of the East) and not blowing second-half leads. But the core appears to be there for next season, although right now, there’s one ﬁnal pressing matter at hand. “I want to win,” Wall said of tonight’s ﬁnale. “I want to get to 30 [wins].” ELLIOT SMITH (FOR EXPRESS)

ORIOLES (7:05 P.M., MASN) Baltimore will face the Rays’ 23-year-old Matt Moore, who is 2-0 and hasn’t allowed a run this season. NATIONALS (7:10 P.M., MASN2) Ross Detwiler has allowed just one earned run in 13 innings pitched, but the right-hander will be looking for his first win of the year as he leads the Nationals vs. the Marlins in Miami. NBA (8 P.M., ESPN) With one game left in the regular season, the Jazz need to beat the Grizzlies in Memphis to keep their playoff hopes alive. NBA (10:30 P.M., ESPN) The Lakers are a game up on the Jazz for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference playoffs. Before its game at home against the Rockets, L.A. will know if it has to win to earn a playoff berth. But the Jazz hold the tiebreaker, so a Utah victory and Lakers loss means L.A. misses the postseason for the first time since the 2004-05 season.
Major Events Examine Security Boston attack puts Olympics, World Cup safety under scrutiny London From London to Sochi to Rio de Janeiro, the deadly bomb attack on the Boston Marathon raised new concerns Tuesday over safety at major sports events around the world, including the Olympics and World Cup. The twin bombings near the marathon ﬁnish line brought into sharp focus the security challenges facing next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio. “We are very, very concerned,” senior IOC member Gerhard Heiberg of Norway told the Associ-

ated Press. “Security is priority No. 1, no question about it.” More immediate is the security planning for this weekend’s London Marathon, which attracts more than 30,000 runners and half a million spectators. Organizers said they were reviewing security for Sunday’s race — one of the world’s six
major marathons — but the event will go ahead as scheduled in a display of unity with Boston. “The best way for us to react is to push ahead with the marathon on Sunday, to get people on the streets and to celebrate it as we always do in London,” British Sports Minister Hugh Robertson
said. “We are absolutely conﬁdent here that we can keep the event safe and secure. ... The best way to show solidarity with Boston is to continue and send a very clear message to those responsible.” The London Marathon, which takes in some of the city’s landmarks, draws many of the world’s top marathoners as well as tens of thousands of amateur and “fun” runners who raise money for charity. Prince Harry, patron of the marathon’s charitable trust, is scheduled to attend Sunday’s race and make the presentations to the winners. “When you have an event of any nature — a marathon, parade — it’s only as safe as the city itself,” London Marathon chief executive Nick Bitel said. “If it’s not held in a stadium, you can’t do a lockdown like you may do in a building.” STEPHEN WILSON (AP)

The NCAA is looking into possible violations following reports about payments Oregon made to recruiting services.
Oregon Faces Penalties School proposes 2-year probation for major violations College Football The University of Oregon has acknowledged major NCAA violations in connection with football recruiting and proposed a selfimposed two-year probation with the loss of one scholarship in each of the next three years, according to documents released by the school. The revelations were made in a summary disposition report included in the documents released Monday. Oregon and the NCAA have failed to come to an agreement on the matter and the case is expected
to go before the infractions committee this year. The NCA A began look ing into possible violations following reports about payments Oregon made to recruiting services, including a $25,000 payment to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2010. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit. The NCAA will not comment on the ongoing investigations. Oregon’s athletic department issued a statement that said: “The review is ongoing until the NCAA Committee on Infractions issues its ﬁnal report. The integrity of the process and our continued full cooperation with the NCAA prohibits us from publicly discussing
the speciﬁcs of this matter.” The university released 515 pages of documents Monday night in response to public-records requests. The documents were heavily redacted and included several drafts of the summary disposition report. “There were underlying major violations coupled with failure to monitor violations involving the head coach [2009 through 2011] and the athletics department ,” the report said. “While the violations were not intentional in nature, coaches and administrators of a sports program at an NCAA member institution have an obligation to ensure that the activities being engaged in comply with NCAA legislation.” ANNE M. PETERSON (AP)

Former NFL Broadcaster Summerall Dead at 82 Pat Summerall, the deep-voiced NFL player-turned-broadcaster who spent half of his four decades calling sports famously paired with John Madden, died Tuesday. He was 82. Susie Wiles, Summerall’s daughter, said her father died in Dallas. “He was an extraordinary man and a wonderful father,” Wiles said.
“I know he will be greatly missed.” Summerall was part of network television broadcasts for 16 Super Bowls. His last championship game was for Fox on Feb. 3, 2002, also his last game with longtime partner Madden. The popular duo worked together for 21 years, moving to Fox in 1994 after years as the lead team for CBS. At the end of their ﬁnal broad-
cast together, Madden described Summerall as “a treasure” and the “spirit of the National Football League” in a tribute to the partner that complemented the former coach so well. “You are what the NFL is all about, what pro football is all about, and more important, what a man is all about and what a gentleman is all about,” Madden said.

On the Rocks? Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, aren’t getting divorced 31
Since “Portlandia” premiered in 2011, IFC has been reinventing itself as the home of off-beat original comedy. Last week, the network announced 11 concepts it’s considering turning into shows. I think these four have a shot at “Portlandia”-caliber acclaim: “Garfunkel and Oates”: The musical comedy duo of Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome, above, could be poised to be the next Flight of the Conchords. Their adorable, guitarand-ukulele folk songs mask the satirical, dirty nature of their songs. By Rudi “Timms Industrial Greenberg Piping”: The concept — something about a piping company — is less important than how it will be shot: “in stop-motion animation with baby dolls … modeled on 1980s primetime soaps.” Voices include Elizabeth Banks, Giancarlo Esposito and John Lithgow. “Cult Following”: Matt Besser and “The Mighty Boosh’s” Rich Fulcher co-wrote this script about two friends who run a health-food restaurant and somehow end up leading a cult. Whole Foods will not be happy about this one. “Jetpackula”: Rob Schrab is one of TV’s best directors (see: the “Community” “Law & Order” parody), so even if a “supernatural buddy comedy” about a struggling illustrator who befriends a vampire from the future sounds silly, it’s exactly what IFC is looking for. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.

An Off-Beat Path
Left: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Mosquito” is the band’s first album since 2009. Below: Fall Out Boy emerges from a five-year album hiatus with “Save Rock and Roll.”
New Spins on Old Selves After some time off, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Fall Out Boy hit the comeback trail Music The Yeah Yeah Yeahs spent their hiatus years working on tasteful art projects and high-concept operas. Fall Out Boy spent its hiatus years waiting to see if the members’ solo albums and reality shows took off before reluctantly deciding to get back on the bus. Both groups have returned from their hibernations with a heightened sense of nostalgia for their old selves and a renewed sense of their place in the world. “Mosquito,” the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ first album since 2009’s
mainstream “It’s Blitz!,” is more complex and less danceable than its predecessor. It’s a darker, multilayered collection of art-pop songs incorporating elements of punk, pop, reggae, gospel and soul. The album is ﬁlled with good songs done well, but “Mosquito” still feels as if it’s missing some ineffable thing. On the great opener “Sacrilege,” Karen Orzolek sings like a woman waking from a long slumber. Rousing and gorgeous, unusually uplifting (there’s a gospel choir), it’s one of the disc’s many ﬁne songs, but the only true stunner. Things end well, however, with “Wedding Song,” the group’s most unabashed love ballad since “Maps,” and the only song here that has as much heart as emotion. Fall Out Boy, whose reunion was less certain, re-emerges with
Yeah Yeah Fall Out Yeahs Boy Mosquito
Save Rock and Roll
“Save Rock and Roll,” the band’s ﬁrst album in ﬁve years. Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz envision themselves as returning conquerors, ready to rescue rock ’n’ roll from any rivals who would despoil it. It’s tough to tell who they have in mind, since Emo Boys In Skinny Jeans Who Sing Catchy PopPunk Songs hasn’t exactly been a thriving subgenre since they left.
Divorce anthem “Miss Missing You” is the closest Fall Out Boy will get to emotive, Passion Pit-style electro (“Baby you were my picket fence,” Stump sings). Co-written by Wentz, it’s also the saddest, darkest Ashlee Simpson-related song ever. Who could have imagined a world in which Fall Out Boy was more cynical than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs about marriage? Or about anything? ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Silly Scenarios, Serious Issues ‘Would You Eat Your Cat?’ uses outlandish events to shed light on ethical quandaries Book Review
50 YEARS OF
In the first of 25 ethical dilemmas concocted by Jeremy Stangroom in his book, “Would You Eat Your Cat? Ethical Conundrums and What They Tell You About Yourself” ($15.95, Norton), a cat dies. The owner decides to cook and eat part of the animal, both as a memorial tribute and because she hears cat meat is delicious. Stangroom asks, is her meal morally wrong? To most of us, this gross but victimless performance isn’t a question of morality; it’s a question of taste. Unfortunately, the essential silliness of the cat owner’s “conun-
drum” is repeated many times in this mildly entertaining self-helper. Stangroom, a frequent writer and twitterer on philosophical issues, tries to use these outrageous plot lines to illuminate questions that are both more serious and more common. There is, for example, a hapless man who is strapped to a hospital bed for months while doctors transfuse his antibodies to a dying celebrity; if he insists on pulling out the IVs, is he guilty of murder? This leads directly to a discussion on abortion, but you’re unlikely to arrive at a deeper understanding of the issue by reading this lightweight book. NANCY SZOK AN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Live,” which kicks off June 28 with a Beyonce concert. (AP)

The Deal With Eels Hailed by poets as the “siren of the North Sea’’ and 8:00 “love’s arrow on Earth,’’ the eel — snakelike and slimy, with a row of jagged teeth — has fascinated researchers for centuries. Artist, writer and naturalist James Prosek sheds light on this shadowy creature and the behavior it inspires in those who seek to know more about it. (TM) PBS

PAR SCORE 145-155, BEST SCORE 232
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may discover today that you have much more in common with a rival than you had supposed — and you can use this to your advantage. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) What is it that you want from the day? Answer this before things get going, and you can all but guarantee satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Knowledge is, indeed, power — and what you know today is likely to put you head and shoulders above those who are working against you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’re going to need someone else to go to bat for you today if you expect to make headway at what amounts to a rather difficult time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your priorities are not entirely in sync with another’s today, and it’s important that you try to work together for mutual gain.
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.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re likely to remember something you’re supposed to do today while you are in the middle of doing something else. You can find the time! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may be worrying about money matters a little more than usual today. After hours, you’ll be able to square away certain key details.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can put things any way you like, but you’re going to have to face the truth sooner or later — and no one can do that for you.
76 60 Today: Warm today with a thunderstorm. A thunderstorm in spots early tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You can keep others in the loop and still reserve information for yourself. You don’t have to reveal everything just yet!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) After thinking through a certain situation again and again, you’re likely to arrive at the conclusion that it was unavoidable.
POOCH CAFE | PAUL GILLIGAN
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’re going to have to let others know what your schedule looks like today so there are as few surprises as possible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may not be as far ahead as you think, but you’ll have ample time to assess the situation and make plans to catch up.
