IMPATIENCE

In Fairness to Him, He Would Have Missed Cinco de Mayo Police say an inmate who served 272 days then escaped from a north Portland prison with less than a week to go until his release has been recaptured. Matthew Medlin, 30, was caught late Wednesday night at a Jack in the Box in north Portland. Medlin had served a sentence for a variety of crimes at the Columbia River Correctional Institute. His release date was to be Tuesday. (AP) PUBLIC SERVICE

Jail Explosion Kills 2, Hurts 184 Florida facility had just been struck by record flooding

“The explosion shook us so hard it was like we were in an earthquake. It was like a movie, a horrible, horrible movie.”

Pensacola, Fla.

— INM ATE MONIQUE BA RNE S JOHN RAOUX (AP)

The jail already had 2 feet of water in the basement from the recordsetting rains when an apparent gas explosion leveled the inside of the building, killing two inmates and injuring 184 other people, officials said Thursday. In the rubble and chaos, inmates were trapped and had to be rescued. Others were treated for their injuries in the parking lot. In all, 600 inmates rushed out of Escambia County’s jail. The injured were taken by bus to hospitals while the others were sent to nearby jails. Authorities lost track of three inmates in the confusion, but by late afternoon, they were confident everyone was accounted for.

Debris from a blast at Escambia County’s jail is scattered at the entrance Thursday.

Pieces of glass and brick were strewn outside the jail. The front of the building appeared bowed, with cracks throughout. Inmate Monique Barnes said she and other inmates complained of smelling gas ahead of the blast, and some reported headaches. County spokesman Bill Pear-

son said they didn’t receive any 911 calls about gas nor did they have any reports of an odor. Investigators said it could take days to determine what caused the explosion. They were having a hard time getting to the epicenter in the back of the building because there was so much damage.

Joseph Steadman, the head of the state fire and arson bureau, said it was still too early to say if the weather had anything to do with it. More than 15 inches of rain fell on Pensacola on Tuesday, the rainiest single day since forecasters started keeping records in 1880. Neighborhoods were flooded and hundreds of people had to be rescued from homes and cars. The jail was running on generator power after the flooding. MELISSA NELSON-GABRIEL (AP)

Report: Majority of States Exceeded Obamacare Sign-Up Targets Washington Blue or red, a majority of states have exceeded their health-care sign-up targets under President Barack Obama’s law — something that would have been hard to imag-

ine after last fall’s botched rollout of insurance markets. But the administration’s final numbers, released Thursday, also expose shortcomings, including subpar enrollment among Hispanics, the nation’s largest minority group.

Still, strong state-by-state performance indicates that the healthcare law is making inroads around the country, even as Republicans insist that repealing “Obamacare” will be a winning issue in the fall congressional elections. An anal-

ysis of the government numbers found that 31 states met or exceeded enrollment targets set by the administration before the insurance exchanges opened. Twenty of those are led by Republican governors. CARL A K. JOHNSON (AP)

55 Colleges Investigated Feds examine schools over the handling of sexual-assault claims Washington The release Thursday of a federal list of 55 colleges with open “sexual violence investigations” underscores that the twin problem of how to prevent and respond to sex assaults on campus has become a national question, touching schools from elite privates to large publics to small regional schools. The list from the Education Department continues the Obama administration’s push to shine a spotlight on sex assault after questions were raised in recent years about how prominent colleges have handled rape allegations and related issues. Three Ivy League universities landed on the list: Harvard University (its college and its law school), Princeton University and Dartmouth College. So did other such prestigious private schools as Emory University, the University of Southern California and Amherst and Swarthmore colleges. There were four schools list-

MEANWHILE …

Reports of Sex Assault in Military Up 50% Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday that sexual assaults are a threat to both women and men in uniform and that the Pentagon must do more to fight a culture that discourages victims from reporting assaults. Reports of sexual assaults by members of the military rose 50 percent after the Pentagon began a vigorous campaign to get more victims to come forward, according to a Pentagon report released Thursday. Hagel, above, said he is ordering new initiatives, including efforts to get more male victims to come forward and a review of alcohol policies addressing the risks of alcohol being used as a weapon by predators.

ed from Maryland, Virginia and D.C.: Catholic University of America, Frostburg State University, the College of William and Mary and the University of Virginia. The department’s Office for Civil Rights is examining complaints it received from individuals on campuses and those it discovered as part of its regular efforts to see if schools are in compliance with the federal law known as Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender at schools that receive federal funding. The department said this is the first comprehensive look at which

campuses are under review for possible violations of how the law requires the handling of sexual violence-claims. But the list does not include details about exactly what each school is being examined for. “We hope this increased transparency will spur community dialogue about this important issue,” said Catherine Lhamon, assistant secretary for civil rights. “I also want to make it clear that a college or university’s appearance on this list … in no way indicates at this stage that the college or university is violating or has violated the law.” NICK ANDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Maine teenager is flustered but not hurt after a photo op with a squirrel went awry. Seventeen-year-old Brian Genest said Thursday that he saw what appeared to be a friendly squirrel on a hand rail while walking through a park near Tampa, Fla. Genest took a “selfie” of himself and the squirrel, but the flash and noises from his camera phone scared the animal, which climbed under the teen’s shirt and hung onto his back. He had to throw himself on the ground to scare the creature off, but neither was harmed. (AP)

The Heartbleed security issue is a major flaw in the way that the majority of the Web secured sensitive data. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Ford Takes Leave to Seek Help Toronto

Reaction

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford began a leave of absence and headed for a rehab center Thursday, leaving his scandalized city in the dark about his political future after a report surfaced of a second video of him apparently smoking crack cocaine. Ford announced Wednesday that he would take leave for an unspecified amount of time from both his mayoral post and his re-election campaign, but he did not abandon his bid for a second term as mayor of Toronto. One of his campaign rivals and other Toronto politicians demanded he resign. Toronto police said they were looking into the new video, which was reported by the Globe and Mail newspaper. A day after announcing his decision, Ford boarded a plane for a treatment program outside Toronto that will last at least 30 days, his lawyer Dennis Morris said. Ford, who was elected four years ago on a wave of support from Toronto’s conservative suburbs, has for months been the subject of a

The boy’s father, Park Jongdae, provided it Thursday to The Associated Press, saying he wanted to show the world the conditions aboard the Sewol as it sank. Information such as video can be recovered from micro SD cards in cellphones even if the device is submerged. More than 300 people are dead or missing in the disaster, which has plunged South Korea into mourning and touched off anger and shame. About 220 bodies, mostly from inside the submerged vessel, have been recovered. The group of teens in Park Suhyeon’s video alternated between

In a statement Wednesday, he acknowledged having a problem with alcohol and said he would seek help — but he did not make any reference to crack cocaine. “I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence,” Ford said in a statement late Wednesday. “I have tried to deal with these issues by myself over the past year. I know that I need professional help and I am now 100% committed to getting myself right.” ROB GILLIES (AP)

Lean or Bike In No one wants to feel like a stereotype. So Jennifer Hovis, 37, is pretty uncomfortable with the fact that when she’s riding her bike — which is practically every day — she’s just one blowout away from turning into a damsel in distress. “I’m one of those people that instead of carrying what would help with a flat, I have my credit card and phone so I can be rescued,” the Alexandria resident says. The reason Hovis has never learned how to fix a tire herself? She’s been too intimidated to take a maintenance class at a bike shop. These shops aren’t purposely cultivating a vibe that’s off-putting to women, Hovis says, but that’s the result of employing male-dominated staffs and carrying products designed mostly for dudes. And that’s the issue the Alexandria Spokeswomen, a group found-

Weekend Track Work Metro track work is set to last from 10 p.m. Friday to midnight Sunday.

Family Whee! The annual — and free! — “ABCs of Family Biking” (Sat., 11 a.m.2 p.m.; 215 G St. NE) gives parents the chance to try trailers, cargo bikes and other equipment, and learn more about riding safely with kids. For details, visitkidicalmassdc.blogspot.com.

ed last fall, will address with their first “Women on a Roll” ride this Sunday: The trip, which starts at 10 a.m. in Jones Point Park, includes visits to five Alexandria bike shops. Hovis, who serves on the group’s leadership committee, explains

Red Line trains will run every 20 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont, with more frequent trains between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

that the event isn’t a protest. It’s a chance for dialogue. Every shop knows the riders are coming. The goal is to share ideas that will make women feel welcome — and then spend more money, so everybody wins. In a letter the Alexandria Spokeswomen (alexandria spokeswomen.word press.com) wrote to the shops, they laid out their wish list. They’re asking for periodic women-only rides and classes, gear that’s suited specifically to female cyclists and greater recognition of the fact that women are an important force in their industry. (According to an August 2013 report by the League of American Bicyclists, 60 percent of bicycle owners age 17-28 are women. Another finding: From 2003 to 2012, the number of women and girls participating in bicycling rose 20 percent.) Shops have gotten better about outreach to women in recent years, says Gwen Toops, 27, who considers herself a “casual but dedicated cyclist.” It’s still hard, however, to shake the feeling that she’s not being taken seriously by store staffers. Too many times, even when she’s done her research, she says, “they’ve talked down to me, with the assumption that I don’t know anything.” After Sunday’s ride, the shops and the riders should know a lot more about each other. And participants will know more about biking in Alexandria in general, Hovis says. The route will double as a tour of trails, bike lanes and other roads that are useful for cyclists. “And it’s a no-drop ride,” Hovis says. “That means no one gets left behind.” That’s a good lesson for the bike shops to remember, too.

The Blue and Yellow lines will have regular weekend service. Orange Line trains will operate every 24 minutes.

The Green Line’s Greenbelt station will be closed, with free shuttle buses replacing service to and from College Park.

McAuliffe Mulls Sidestepping the House Va. governor looks for a workaround to expand Medicaid Richmond Gov. Terry McAuliffe is considering expanding Medicaid without the approval of the legislature, a move that would muscle his top priority past House Republicans but also throw his young administration into a partisan firestorm and uncertain legal territory. McAuliffe and top administration officials have discussed that possibility among themselves and consulted lawyers, health-care experts, legislators and activists

as they seek an avenue for getting around the House, according to three people familiar with those discussions. A fourth, who like the others spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t aut horized to reveal private strategy, said the office of Attorney General Mark Herring has been McAuliffe researching the matter. The move would be a daring one — only two other governors have done anything similar to force Medicaid expansion past averse legislatures — that could help break a related budget stalemate

Backstory Ohio’s Republican Gov. John Kasich was able to tap an administrative board that normally oversees state contracting to approve a Medicaid expansion. In Kentucky, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear could authorize expansion unilaterally because Medicaid eligibility rules are set in state regulations, which can be changed by executive order, rather than state code, which requires an act of the legislature. Expansion-by-executive might be trickier in Virginia, where the state constitution requires the legislature to approve all appropriations. (T WP)

But it would also raise far-reaching constitutional questions about the chief executive’s power and the rule of law — issues cropping up with increasing frequency as governors and President Barack Obama seek to work around adversarial legislatures and Congress.

You are not supposed to say a gun should be prohibited. Then you are being no different than the anti-gun people who say an AR-15 should be prohibited.” M I C H A E L S .

The battle over the nation’s first smart gun has shifted to Maryland, with a Rockville dealer saying he will sell the Armatix iP1 after a California gun store removed the weapon from its shelves to placate angry gun-rights activists. Andy Raymond, the co-owner of Engage Armament, said selling the handgun was a “really tough decision” after what happened to Oak Tree Gun Club, which was lambasted by gun owners and National Rifle Association members who fear the new technology will be mandated and will encroach on Second Amendment rights. Electronic chips in the gun communicate with a watch that can be bought separately. The gun cannot be fired without the watch. The Los Angeles area gun store denied having anything to do with it, despite pictures of the gun for sale in its shop and a special firing range built just for the weapon. “If the same reaction happens here, we’ll be out of business,” Raymond said. He’s willing to risk that because Maryland, with its strict

also create a politically toxic environment for the new governor and launch legal challenges that he is by no means assured of beating. Just two governors, in Ohio and Kentucky, have relied on their executive authority to buck reluctant legislatures to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act,

according to health-policy experts. Even those examples do not provide a clear path for McAuliffe since they involved legal quirks that do not appear to exist in Virginia. But for months, McAuliffe administration officials have been discussing their desire to find a way to expand if the House won’t go along, the three people familiar with those discussions said. While still pushing for expansion through the legislature, they have tried to map out a Plan B. They’ve picked the brains of health-care advocates and assured expansion-minded legislators that they are “exploring their options,” as one person familiar with those discussions put it.

The former head of food services for D.C.’s public schools, who was fired after clashing with Chancellor Kaya Henderson last year, alleges in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that the school system was overcharged, billed for spoiled produce and shorted millions of dollars by its largest food vendor. Jeffrey Mills said in an interview that problems with the system’s food services contract are symptoms of the school administration’s weak oversight and mismanagement. “If the money is being wasted, that’s money not being spent on other school programs,” said Mills, whose lawsuit alleges that he was fired in January 2013 for raising alarms about the contract and

seeks back pay and other damages. The District’s inspector general and attorney general are looking into the school system’s money-losing contract with the food vendor, Chartwells-Thompson Hospitality, according to several people close to the inquiries. Mills’ lawsuit and the government inquiries are focused on a contract worth more than $30 million a year to serve the city’s 45,000-student traditional public school system, which has many poor children who rely on the service as their primary meal provider. Problems with Chartwells have surfaced in other cities, including New York and Chicago. Chartwells said Mills’ accusations are baseless. A N N E .

Virginia Virginia’s rich history includes land where the English first settled in the New World and enslaved people sought rest on their way to freedom. But many of those places are in jeopardy from decay, development and lack of resources, according to the nonprofit Preservation Virginia, which released its annual list of endangered historic sites this week.

Bristoe Station and Williamsburg Battlefields The Battle of Williamsburg in 1862 was the first major contest between the Union and the Confederacy in the Peninsula Campaign, according to Preservation Virginia. Bristoe Station played host to the Battle of Kettle Run in 1862 and Battle of Bristoe Station in 1863. Both sites are threatened by “encroaching development,” according to Preservation Virginia. Two-thousand acres of Williamsburg Battlefield have already been developed.

Pocahontas Island Situated in the middle of Appomattox River, Pocahontas Island was one of the earliest free African-American communities in the country, due in part to the presence of two stops on the Underground Railroad that former slaves used to head north. Historic houses on Petersburg’s Witten Street and Logan Street, shown, on the island are in disrepair, according to Preservation Virginia.

The city of Richmond is looking to redevelop Shockoe Bottom, which used to serve as the center of the state’s capital and was a common meeting place for Founding Fathers such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. It was also once the “center of domestic commercial wholesale slave trade.” One redevelopment proposal includes a plan for a slavery heritage site.

Hook-PowellMoorman Farm The complex is an intact 18th-19th century agricultural homestead located on a 40-acre historic core site with multiple buildings, including John Hook’s store, which was built circa 1784 and is one of Virginia’s few remaining 18th-century mercantile structures.

Cover Story

D.C.’s Exclusive Menu Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner is the hottest meal ticket in town — but no one goes for the food. There are more important matters to attend to at the annual schmoozefest: Like, is that Rick Santorum gawking at Lindsay Lohan? And did the leader of the free world just discuss his underwear? Since Express has never had a seat at the table (crazy, right?), we can’t say firsthand what it’s like inside that Hilton ballroom. But after scouring nearly 90 years of newspaper coverage, we’ve figured out what it takes to pull off the perfect Nerd Prom. Diana D’Abruzzo (E xpress) First Course

Know your audience: Comedian Danny Thomas spewed a slew of sexist jokes in 1975 — on a night when journalist Helen Thomas was installed as the association’s first female president. In 2006, Stephen Colbert drew unending backlash after a speech that took harsh jabs at George W. And Wanda Sykes was booed in 2009 after suggesting that Rush Limbaugh “was the 20th hijacker, but he was so strung out on Oxycontin, he missed his flight.”

Presidential Pomp

Ever since Calvin Coolidge hit the Arlington Hotel in 1924, it’s been said that every sitting president has attended the dinner at least once — some with more success than others.

2014 outlook: Something tells us the word “selfie” might come up.

The featured comedian has a tough job: Be funny, but don’t upstage the president. Be funny, but don’t go all “Colbert” on the guest of honor.

MANDEL NGAN (afp/Getty Images)

Be self-deprecating: Presidents get the best response when they poke fun at themselves. Think Reagan making fun of his age (the doctors “carbon-date me”), Clinton vaguely referencing his scandals, and George W. Bush mocking his word-pronunciation pratfalls. Take pot-shots, carefully: You expect the president to make fun of the media and his nemeses, but generic jokes (not personal jabs) are usually better received. In 1993, Clinton took shots at Rush Limbaugh and Republican Sen. Bob Dole — and the aftermath was ugly. He took a broader approach in 1998 when he suggested that “Seinfeld,” which was nearing its end, could be replaced by televised congressional sessions. “Now there’s a show about nothing,” he said.

2014 outlook: While we’re not sure how much political knowledge E! Entertainment’s Joel McHale has, there’s no denying he’s a funny guy.

Roger L. Wollenberg (Getty Images)

Have a quick wit: The president hasn’t always done a stand-up act, but he usually cracks a joke or two. Even Ronald Reagan, recovering from an assassination attempt in 1981, had ’em laughing when he phoned in words of wisdom: “When somebody tells you to get in a car quick, do it.” Bill Clinton would get better over the years, but in 1994, he rambled on about the media’s fixation on his underwear preference, leaving his audience underwhelmed. Barack Obama earned laughs in 2011 when he said he was going to release his official birth video to quash conspiracy theories — and then showed a clip from “The Lion King.”

or year’s Clarence Thomas hearings when she told Bush Sr. that she knew he was out of touch when he said he was sorry the American people had to be exposed to such rough language: “Sir, I don’t want to bum you out, but that’s why the American people watched the Thomas hearings.”  

TOP: President George W. Bush, left, and his inner monologue, played by Steve Bridges, entertain guests at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2006. BOTTOM: In 2009, President Barack Obama was treated to the comedy of Wanda Sykes, who ruffled more than a few feathers with her routine.

Be funny: In 2004, Jay Leno targeted George W.’s re-election campaign while also reminding us how Bush got the job: “John Kerry stands by his claim that some foreign leaders have told him they hope he wins. And, of course, President Bush said, ‘Yeah, well, certain Supreme Court justices have told me I’m going to win.’ ” In 1991, Sinbad took a tamer route when he poked fun at George H.W. Bush. “He can’t fish! You’re the president of the United States. … They should have the Navy SEALs out there. Put something on the hook for the man!”  Be relevant: Russian émigré humorist Yakov Smirnoff took the stage in 1988 amid the Cold War: There are a lot of great things about America, he mused, “like warning shots.” In 1992, Paula Poundstone referenced the pri-

Having celebs at the dinner isn’t a new phenomenon (Ethel Merman was there in 1936). But it’s definitely taken over this Beltway event — so much so that it doesn’t seem fair to call it the “Nerd Prom” anymore. Invite someone to talk about: The tongue-wagging took off in 1987 when, amid the Iran-Contra scandal, Oliver North’s attractive secretary Fawn Hall showed up. (Gasped Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: “That poor woman! Does she know what she’s … in for? Raw meat!”) The next year, model Donna Rice — whose affair with Gary Hart dashed his presidential dreams — was the head-turner du jour. In 1998, Paula Jones, fresh off her sexual harassment suit against Clinton, brought scandal back. Make a cultural footprint: In 1997, not long after coming out, Ellen DeGeneres used the event to reveal new girlfriend Anne Heche. Reality TV stars started showing up in 2001, and one couple in particular — Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne — caused a stir in 2002. The frenzy left Sharon baffled: “I don’t quite get it. … Why should anyone give a [bleep] about

Cover Story us?” Obama somewhat echoed that sentiment in 2012: “I have the nuclear codes. What am I doing telling knockknock jokes to Kim Kardashian?”

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan called first lady Nancy Reagan to the podium to say a few kind words to the press. After a pause she responded, “I’m thinking.”

H   ave a political connection: It’s hard to be irritated by all the Hollywood hoopla when guests have links to This Town. The casts of “The West Wing,” “House of Cards,” “Veep” and “Scandal” are always right at home. 2014 outlook: Two words: Lupita Nyong’o. Overall, the guest list seems to pull back on the glam this year and reflects a more dignified group. FOURTH COURSE

Go ahead, jab: In 2010, Obama said that while he had done much to revive the economy, there was nothing he could do for the media. “I’m not a miracle worker.” The following year, comedian Seth Meyers made reference to the changing media landscape: “The New York Times’ [after party] used to be free, but apparently there’s a cover now,” he said referencing the paper’s new paywall. “So like everyone else, I will probably go to the Huffington Post party.” But tread carefully: The media didn’t take too kindly to Colbert’s speech in 2006 and, therefore, barely covered it. In one joke, he urged journalists to “write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know — fiction!” Honor the craft: In 2003, George W. spent a good portion of his speech honoring two journalists who died that year while covering the war: David Bloom and Michael Kelly. “Both men brought great credit to a hardworking profession,” Bush said. 2014 outlook: This year may actually be the most media-focused dinner in a long time, as it’s the 100year anniversary of the White House Correspondents’ Association.

he played a video spoofing his final days in office (chasing Hillary’s limo with a bag lunch, watching his laundry dry). In 2005, Laura Bush drew headlines for her jabs at George. “At 9 p.m., Mr. Excitement here is asleep and I’m watching ‘Desperate Housewives.’ Ladies and gentlemen, I’m a desperate housewife!”

LOIS RAIMONDO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

It’s called the correspondents’ dinner because it was created by journalists. So some references to them is encouraged, even though a growing number have been boycotting the dinner. (Tom Brokaw said the last straw for him was the 2012 attendance of Lindsay Lohan — though presidential candidate Rick Santorum, seen snapping the starlet’s picture, didn’t seem to mind.)

Media Hat-Tips

In 2002, hundreds clamored for autographs and pictures with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, stars of a new MTV reality show. Sharon later admitted: “To be honest, I don’t know a senator from a newscaster.”

DESSERT

Something Special No, we’re not talking about E! livestreaming the dinner’s red carpet like last year. We said special. Offer a personal touch: In 1927, entertainers sang original songs highlighting moments in Coolidge’s presidency, even mentioning the mechanical horse he liked to ride in his White House bedroom. In 1954, Irving Berlin serenaded Dwight D. Eisenhower with an original song. At Clinton’s last dinner as president,

Provide a taste of the real world: In 1946, as conservation methods swept the country, Harry Truman and guests ate a new wheat-saving “dark bread.” In 1958, as a recession gag, combs and tissue paper were placed on tables, and guests were “encouraged to make their own music to save on expenses.” In 1974 — with Richard Nixon naturally absent and Watergate buzzwords on everyone’s minds — a telegram from correspondents off covering the president was read, relaying “Mr. Nixon’s warmest ‘inaudible’ and his sincerest ‘unintelligible.’” Be unique: George W. got laughs in 2006 when he brought out comedian Steve Bridges, who did an on-point impersonation. Last year, a “House of Cards” parody showed Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) stockpiling tickets to the dinner and deciding where everyone got to sit. (Said Sen. John McCain: “As long as you don’t put Pelosi at our table. She keeps trying to friend me on Facebook.”) 2014 outlook: We can’t help but hope for another “House of Cards” parody.

A Serving Of ‘Soup’ And Snark “Welcome to ‘Meet the Press,’ but with a lot more profanity and d--- jokes,” Joel McHale told a studio audience before Wednesday’s taping of E!’s “The Soup” in D.C. After nearly 10 years of roasting celebrities, reality television and daytime talk shows on the weekly clip show, McHale will skewer an equally snarked-upon segment of society on Saturday: political Washington. “The Soup” was in town this week because McHale’s hosting the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Though this week’s “Soup” didn’t turn political, it did feature NBC’s Chuck Todd and CNN’s Jake Tapper, By Rudi Greenberg as well as D.C.-themed backdrops. Considering that McHale isn’t a political comic, he’s not the most obvious choice of host, but he has the potential to be a great one. McHale is an equal opportunity offender. Though his usual targets are tabloid fixtures, I’m confident he can apply his insult-generating powers to the political and media elite. The last four WHCD hosts — Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and Jay Leno — were all well-versed in political humor. The closest McHale gets to mocking politics on “The Soup” is playing off a cable news clip, or riffing on one of Anthony Weiner’s many scandals. But according to “Soup” executive producer K.P. Anderson, “Joel is actually the one who will come in with a big stick up his ass about something going on in the news a lot more often than I will.” After the taping, I got to see McHale’s quick wit in action. While Anderson and I were talking, McHale walked by. Anderson mentioned I was from The Washington Post, to which McHale replied, “What’s that? That’s an A ma z on sup plement right?” Don’t be surprised if he tells that one on Saturday, too.

No. 2 Favorite Is Out Hoppertunity, the second favorite for the Kentucky Derby, is out of the race. Trainer Bob Baffert says the colt has a sore left front foot. Hoppertunity was the 6-1 choice.

California Chrome won his last four races in Derby style, taking the lead on the final turn. Jockey Victor Espinoza may have to hurry him a little earlier at the start of the turn, but come the stretch California Chrome should be first. Espinoza stole the 2002 Derby aboard 20-1 War Emblem by leading every step, so he knows how to properly pace in the roughly run 20-horse field.

Medal Count showed a late kick in the Blue Grass Stakes that he can use to rally for second under underrated jockey Robby Albarado. If Ride On Curlin drew anywhere inside the first 14 post positions, he’d be the long-shot winner. But being stuck at No. 18 is a killer. The son of 2007 Preakness Stakes-winner Curlin has a strong late move, but there just isn’t room in a 20-horse field to close 10 lengths on a legit horse like California Chrome.

Storylines Stay the Same

Hurt Nats end April behind the Braves. Sound familiar?

Jaroslav Halak, who was acquired midseason, played 12 games for the Caps.

Nationals

Caps Trade Halak to Islanders

Nationals fans are experiencing a bit of deja vu after the first month of the season. For a second straight year, Washington was a preseason darling, picked as Sports Illustrated’s team to win the World Series. Yet, the season is just over a month underway and injuries and inconsistent play have once again taken over. Even postgame comments are beginning to sound the same as last year’s. “It’s early. It’s April. You can only say that for so long, though,” right fielder Jayson Werth said after a 7-2 loss to the Angels last week. Here are f ive similarities between 2013 and 2014:

ALEX BRANDON (AP)

Capitals

Same Position Though Washington is 16-12 (compared with 13-14 in 2013), it is in the same spot it was at this time a year ago: behind the Braves in the NL East. The Nationals went 0-5 against the Braves in April 2013 and went 1-5 against them over the first month of this season. Meanwhile, the Braves ended the past two Aprils 17-9.

Lack of Consistency After getting off to 7-2 starts the past two seasons, the Nationals were unable to establish a winning streak of more than three games in the rest of baseball’s first month in either campaign. Since April 11, the Nationals’ longest winning streak has been two games.

Nats center fielder Denard Span is a career .277 hitter in the first month of the season, but he’s hit just .233 so far in 2014.

Injury Issues Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is once again missing significant time due to injury. Catcher Wilson Ramos (wrist), third baseman Ryan Zimmerman (thumb) and pitcher Doug Fister (lat strain) have all dealt with injuries, too. A total of eight players have been on the DL this year, compared with 10 players that missed games by mid-June in 2013.

Mindless Miscues A year ago, the Nationals committed 107 errors, tied for seventh-worst in the majors. This year, it’s been more of the same.

Similar Starts The Nationals are playing a lot like they did a year ago, but not every major statistical category is a mirror image of 2013. (E XPRESS) April 2013 Record 13-14 Runs scored 96 Runs allowed 115 Batting average .234 Home runs 27 Stolen bases 12 ERA 3.80 Saves 7 Blown saves 4

2014 16-12 126 108 .259 29 12 3.16 5 3

The Nationals were tied for second-worst with 26 errors before Thursday’s games.

Early Slumps Pitcher Taylor Jordan (since reassigned to Syracuse) has been the staff’s weak link (0-3, 5.61 ERA), though Fister should return to the rotation next week. Denard Span is off to a slow start, batting .233 compared with his first-month 2013 average of .276. And a middle-of-the lineup bat is again hitting under .240. Last year, it was Adam LaRoche (.136 in April); this year, it’s Ian Desmond (.232). JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Threats to Wizards: The Wizards say the NBA has investigated a person who made threats to the team on Twitter during its first-round series against the Bulls. Center Marcin Gortat said Thursday that there was “one gentleman who really threatened us, actually made some terrorist threats to us.” Gortat, who is from Poland, said that “he was saying there was a bomb on the plane and stuff, that my country’s going to get bombed and all my family’s going to die, just stuff like that.” The tweets came after the Wizards’ Game 2 win in Chicago. Wizards spokesman Scott Hall said the matter was turned over to the league. Added Gortat: “Some people already visited him.” (AP)

Less than two months since they acquired Jaroslav Halak at the trade deadline, the Capitals made it clear they didn’t intend to re-sign the pending unrestricted free agent. The Capitals traded Halak to the New York Islanders on Thursday for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft in a deal that makes sense for both teams. Washington likely wasn’t going to dish out the term or salary (potentially upward of $4 million annually) that Halak could be seeking as a free agent and they add another draft pick to the mix, bringing them to nine for 2014. The Islanders, who have been in search of a goaltender of the future for a while now, get the exclusive negotiating rights to a netminder who wants to be a true No. 1.

D’Antoni Resigns As Lakers Coach NBA Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni resigned Wednesday after less than two seasons on the job. A team spokesman confirmed D’Antoni’s resignation, ending the brief tenure of the Lakers’ fourth head coach in less than three years. D’Antoni went 67-87 after taking over the Lakers early in the 2012-13 season. He replaced the fired Mike Brown, who lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion coach Phil Jackson in 2011. The injury-plagued Lakers were 27-55 this season, their worst campaign in more than 50 years and the second-worst winning percentage in franchise history. The 16-time NBA champion franchise missed the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons and only the third time in 38 years.

Wizards Last week, on a day off during their first-round playoff series, Nene and John Wall relaxed in the cold tub at Verizon Center and chatted about the journey that brought the Wizards back from obscurity. “How we came and how we started,” the 31-year-old Brazilian said. “And where we are right now.” There’s more time for such conversations now. The Wizards not only have finished off the Chicago Bulls in five games — giving the franchise its first playoff series win in nine years — but they also have a long layoff before their secondround series opens Monday.

35 years, but such dubious history, so far at least, hasn’t been a drag on this group. “We believe in this,” center Marcin Gortat said after Tuesday night’s clinching win over the Bulls. “If we play hard, if we’re really physical, we can beat everybody. We’ve proved that.” And it will be easier if Nene is hitting on all cylinders. Last week, the veteran forward was called the team’s “X-factor” — perhaps an unusual moniker for someone making $13 million per year. Nene responded that he has “a lot of nicknames now” and that his favorite is “Big Moose.” Whatever he’s called, Nene has a leadership, grit and all-around game that have become essential to the Wizards. “It’s all the intangibles. I use that word for Nene all the time,” coach Randy Wittman said. “He can score, he can shoot, he can post, he can pass, he can dribble, he can defend, and combination of [all] that. When he’s not there, you can’t put one guy in who has all those things.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

Fresh Start Helps Fuel United’s Key Pickups D.C. United D.C. United (3-2-2) has experienced quite the turnaround so far in 2014, having already equaled their 2013 win total in 27 fewer games. Much of the credit for United’s improvement can be attributed to players that other teams in Major League Soccer simply didn’t care to have around anymore. “It’s a good group and, as I said before, they’re hungry,” coach Ben Olsen said after Saturday’s 4-1 win over FC Dallas. “A lot of these guys have something to prove for one reason or another.” Fabian Espindola was the star of Saturday’s win, scoring twice and assisting on another goal. Along with starting defenders Sean Frank-

lin and Bobby Boswell, Espindola was acquired in December’s MLS Re-Entry Draft — a league mechanism that allows teams to select players who are out of contract or have had contract options declined by their current teams. “These are guys that feel like Olsen took a chance on us,” Boswell said. “He took a chance on us by bringing us in and giving us money, saying, ‘Hey, I think you guys can contribute on a high level.’ We want to reward not only them but want to show that that decision from the other club wasn’t the

smartest decision.” Three other key starters — Jeff Parke, Davy Arnaud and Chris Rolfe — were also let go by their previous teams.

All three were acquired in trades. Parke and Arnaud came over in the offseason, while Rolfe has only been with United for a month. Only Parke cost United anything substantial, as the team traded away young defender Ethan White and the top allocation spot for the veteran center back. While higher-profile acquisitions Cristian Fernandez and Eddie Johnson have experienced some growing pains with their new club, Espindola, Franklin, Boswell, Rolfe, Parke and Arnaud have made a smooth transition. If D.C. United’s new additions continue their strong performances, their old clubs may live to regret the decision to let them go. SETH VERTELNEY (FOR E XPRESS)

‘WeDon’t SayNo’to Residents Bozzuto trains front desk staff to be concierges in a bid to keep tenants happy Apartment Trend An irate “resident” approached Daniel Sticco demanding action from the concierge at the Apartments at CityCenter. She was having a party that night and her refrigerator had stopped working. Sticco calmly apologized, made a call to the maintenance staff, offered solutions such as having another refrigerator delivered and ice brought to her apartment, and then made sure everything was done to her satisfaction. The “resident” was Shani Harrison, a concierge at 909 Capitol Yards (909 New Jersey Ave. SE; 866-435-4001, capitol yardsdc.com), who along with Sticco was participating in a role-playing exercise as part of a day-long training program by the Bozzuto Group. At a time when businesses are still trying

Concierges

“Companies need to start with their customers and work backward, not just seek to emulate what Disney or Ritz-Carlton does.”

Continued from page R1

to regain their footing after the recession, companies such as the Bozzuto Group are betting that good customer service will have a positive effect on their bottom line. And they’re willing to spend resources on training employees on the best ways to interact with their customers and potential customers.

ASK THE ADVOCATE

JEFFREY MACMILLAN (FOR CAPITAL BUSINESS)

“The return is evidenced in buildings that are fully occupied with residents who are happy living in them,” Julie A. Smith, president of Bozzuto Management Co., wrote in an email. As the apartment industry moves toward offering more services, it is only natural that the highend buildings are opting for amenities common in high-end hotels. Customer service can be a way for apartment buildings to distinguish themselves and pry tenants away from competitors. Competing for Tenants Greenbelt, Md.,-based Bozzuto, a company that manages more than 150 apartment buildings along the East Coast, sees its front desk workers as the face of its buildings, the problem solvers, but also part of its brand. Besides giving them a fancy title, the company trains them to

do more than just hand out packages and process service requests. From tickets to a ballgame to reservations at a restaurant to picking up dry cleaning, no request is too trivial. One concierge kept a

Can landlords in the District of Columbia be required to enforce law and order at their properties? An example: Tenants playing loud music, allowing their children to run, stomp and play in an apartment and hallways, making noise disturbing others’ quality of life. the landlord must maintain the premises in substantial compliance with the District’s housing code. Under District case law, however, the “warranty of habitability” goes beyond just the property’s physical aspects, and includes the tenant’s right to the “quiet enjoyment” of the rental unit. For example, where the tenant has been subjected to an unreasonably prolonged and noisy construction project in the building, a court will like-

the Apartments at CityCenter (825 10th St. NW; 888-481-7392, apart mentsatcitycenter.com). The concierge training is in addition to other training they receive, including an eight-hour orientation and an eight-hour “Bozzuto Basics” class. They also do online training. Steven Fretwell, director of learning and development, who came to the Bozzuto Group after working at Marriott and Ritz-Carlton, developed the training about a year ago. He eventually wants the concierges to undergo a total of 40 hours of training. “I think we’ve gotten our money’s worth if these people understand how important they are to our brand and to our residents,” Fretwell said.

resident’s pet at his home for three weeks when the tenant had to leave town unexpectedly to care for an ill relative. “We don’t say no to things,” said Clark Pritchett, general manager at

Attention to Detail The people Bozzuto has hired for these jobs already have that in their DNA. Instead, the focus is on their brand of aggressive hospitality. Concierges are expected to know their neighborhoods, to network with restaurants and shops and to plan events for their residents. (They never use the word tenant, only resident. They also don’t call it a unit, but an apartment.) Concierges are told how to

ly hold that the landlord is in breach of the lease. What else does the “warranty of habitability” cover? The key factor is the reasonable expectations of the parties. Certainly, it is reasonable for a tenant to complain to the landlord about a chronic disturbance caused by another tenant. It’s also reasonable for the tenant to expect that the landlord will take appropriate actions within the landlord’s capacity. Such actions range from a “cease and desist” request to pursuing eviction on the grounds that the offending tenant is in breach of his or her lease. In determining how and whether to seek redress, the aggrieved tenant should consider how serious the problem is. If it is serious enough, he or she

may go to court and seek injunctive relief against the offending tenant. It is appropriate to call the police in the event of an extreme breach of the peace or a threat to personal safety or property. But if the parties are mutually comfortable doing so, merely discussing the problem may be the way to go. If the offending tenant likes to play recorded music or a musical instrument, and the sound level is questionable, it may be appropriate to measure it to determine whether it exceeds the level permissible under District regulations. It may also be appropriate for the aggrieved tenant to consider compromises — for example adding “sound buffers” such as carpets and wallhangings — to minimize the problem. This column is for informational

Answers to common renter questions from the D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate

Yes, the landlord is required to take reasonable action against tenants who cause disturbances to other tenants. The lease sets forth many of the landlord’s contractual obligations to the tenant, but not necessarily all of them. Every lease in the District includes an “implied warranty of habitability.” Thus, whether or not the lease says it, the rental property must meet minimal conditions of safety and livability. Generally, this means that

dress. They don’t have uniforms but they are expected to wear “power suits.” The style guide includes rules on the length of men’s pants and the type of shoes women can wear. “There’s a message here that we want to promote,” Sticco said. “There’s a feeling we want to promote. There’s a smell that we want to promote. There’s an entire experience that we’re trying to bring together, and that has to be brought from the top down.” One of the concierge’s roles is arranging the move-in gifts for residents. Bozzuto provides residents small tokens to welcome them — a card signed by the staff, a sponge, dish detergent, paper towels, a reusable water bottle and a travel mug, candy, granola bar and a bottle of water, detergent on top of the dryer, toys for their pets and bath products, a robe and a rubber duckie in the bathroom. At CityCenter, the move-in gifts also include a drink box from Cuba Libre — two shots of rum, a bottle of Coke, a lime and a highball glass — and a chocolate bar from Co Co Sala. “We give t hem a sense of home,” said Sanovia Gross, a CityCenter concierge.

THE REELIST

Electro (Jamie Foxx) can shoot electricity from his hands. There — now you know every interesting thing about him.

SONY PICTURES

Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) can scale tall buildings but can’t quite prove he’s developed as a character.

Swing and a Miss ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ doesn’t have as much fun as its predecessor Film Review “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the sequel to the reboot of the series based on the comic book, is one of those movies that insiders used to describe as “critic-proof.” A strenuously chipper but nonetheless saggy, baggy and mostly ho-hum addition to the SpiderMan canon, the film is close to making a liability out of what was once its greatest strength: its casting. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” takes up pretty much where 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” left off, with Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and his girlfriend, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), graduating from high school. We’re shown that Peter is still pursuing his extra-curricular hobby of saving New York as Spider-Man, the super cool wall crawler sheathed in a blueand-red bodysuit and blessed with supernatural spider sense and webspinning savvy. Soon enough Peter is visited by his past, when Harry Osborn (Dane

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ (PG-13) Director: Marc Webb Stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx In a Nutshell: The mysterious megacompany Oscorp sends a medley of super villains up against Spider-Man, who also struggles with family secrets.

DeHaan) returns to Manhattan to visit his father’s deathbed and take over the sinister family business. As a corporate hegemon that would make Donald Trump blush, Oscorp reigns supreme over the New York skyline, employing not just Gwen, but also an engineer named Max (Jamie Foxx), who crosses paths with Spider-Man in an encounter that will have fateful, if not fatal, reverberations. It’s clear the film’s aim is purely utilitarian, in introducing some important new villains, disposing of one beloved

character and otherwise ensuring a market for the planned sequels and spinoffs. Spider-Man’s cheeky one-liners have always carried the ring of giddy liberation, the gee-whiz expressions of a shy teenager in the throes of newfound power and freedom. In “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” they just sound snarky. Similarly, when Peter makes a dramatic entrance at his high school graduation, he looks less like a goofy adolescent than a cocky, self-entitled jerk. Stone once again delivers a winning and mostly believable performance as the smart, self-possessed Gwen. As for Garfield, the future’s less certain. He’s one of the finest actors of his generation, as anyone who saw the shattering 2007 drama “Boy A” will attest, but the acrobatics he’s asked to do in service to “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” — physically, and in submitting to such a narrow emotional range — are looking increasingly uncomfortable. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Can Spider-Man go the distance? So far he’s been the easiest superhero to love, but in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ the character starts to wear out his welcome.

A Baddie Done Badly Here’s the tricky thing with heroes: Without a bad guy, they’re nothing. Take away a hero’s enemy and you’re left with a guy (or girl, but let’s be real here — can you name Wonder Woman’s nemesis?) who can do cool stuff, but that stuff is really only useful if he wants to be the world’s highest-paid children’s birthday party entertainer. That, in a nutshell, is the major problem with “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The film is visually nifty, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Spidey and his girlfriend have such serious old-school romantic chemistry it’s like Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy reached down from heaven to sprinkle magical fairy banter dust on them. Frankly, the film would have succeeded if it were a romcom, because that way the writers could have gotten rid of the fairly pointless, very sparky Electro (Jamie Foxx). Electro starts out, as so many villains do, as a normal schlub. Max Dillon feels invisible at work, but that’s not really explored. He kind of has a creepy fascination with Spider-Man, but that’s not really explored. Then he falls into a tank of electric eels, gets some shocking (GET IT?) superpowers, and then he’s evil! Because … well, we don’t know. It’s not really explored. The key to writing a bad guy is to make sure he thinks what he’s doing is right; everyone is the good guy in his own story. (The one exception is the Joker, but he proves the rule. Then burns the rule down and salts the earth where the rule once stood.) Which means every bad guy needs a story, and Electro doesn’t get one worth telling. “Suddenly bonkers” is not a motivation; a villain with no motivation is so flat he’s not worth rooting against. Antagonist Harry Osborn gets less screen time but a better background, so he’s more interesting. More interesting than the guy who can shoot electricity from his hands. Really. Foxx does what he can, but you can’t flesh out someone who has nothing inside. The writers of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” seem to have forgotten that, in the end, you’re only as good as your bad guy.

Gabriel Byrne and Emmanuelle Devos try to make their unconventional courtship work in “Just a Sigh.”

It Starts With a Spark

Film The plot of “Just a Sigh” will sound familiar to anyone who saw 1995’s “Before Sunrise.” A man and woman meet on a train and the sparks fly, so they decide to spend some time together, even though they know it probably won’t go anywhere. The most obvious difference is that “Just a Sigh” has a middle-aged pair standing in for fresh-faced 20-somethings. On a more subtle level, this new story doesn’t have what made “Before Sunrise” such a beloved movie — and one that spawned two sequels — which is brilliant, naturalistic dialogue that reveals plenty about the protagonists. The day-in-a-life routine in “Just a Sigh” doesn’t sneak up on you in the same, meaningful way. Emmanuelle Devos plays Alix, a 43-year-old actress who hasn’t quite mastered adulthood. The Frenchwoman has been working

‘Just a Sigh’ (NR) Director: Jerome Bonnell Stars: Emmanuelle Devos and Gabriel Byrne In a Nutshell: After a fateful meeting on a train, two strangers spend time together hoping their casual flirtation turns into something more.

on a play in Calais, France, but heads to Paris for an audition and manages to nearly forget her train ticket, run out of cash and show up late for the casting call. Meanwhile, her cellphone dies and she forgot to bring her charger. She’s flaky, but one thing manages to hold her attention, which is the British man she locks eyes with on the train (Gabriel Byrne). After many furtive glances, he asks her for directions to a church, and she takes it as an invitation, heading there after her audition to track him down. He’s there all right — for a funeral. Most people might be somewhat embarrassed if their obsessive tendencies led them to inadvertently crash a funeral. But Alix hardly seems ashamed as she follows the man and the other

mourners to a nearby bar. It wouldn’t be fair to reveal much more, except perhaps that Alix is in a long-term relationship with a man who can’t seem to give her the validation she so badly needs. Perhaps that’s why she’s following a stranger around Paris, even if her stalking can feel unbearably awkward at times. Devos doesn’t have much to work with, but she rises to the occasion. In one scene, as she rides the Metro, she watches a couple holding hands, then a mother and daughter, and her understated expressions convey a powerful array of emotions. But we never get to know her beyond the obvious (that she’s a bit of a mess) and the curious (that she’s a bit of a stalker). As for Byrne’s character, who goes unnamed until the final moments of the movie, he amounts to little more than a searing set of sad eyes. (Byrne really is a master of the handsome-mournful expression.) Without much to go on, “Just a Sigh” lives up to its name. It disappears without a trace. STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

One-of-a-Kind Splatter Film Film Every time you crack open a bottle of Flying Dog beer (we like the Raging Bitch IPA best), you’re holding a little bit of art history in your hand. The Frederick, Md., brewery’s labels feature drawings by artist Ralph Steadman, who came to prominence as the illustrator for many of rebel journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s best-known stories. “For No Good Reason,” opening locally Friday, is about Steadman, and it’s a bit of a rebel itself. “I didn’t want a film that was just an art documentary which was there to educate,” director Charlie Paul says. “There’s no one telling you what Ralph meant to the world; that’s for the audience to decide.” Paul and his wife, Lucy, who served as producer, worked on the film off and on for the better part of 15 years. It wasn’t supposed to take that long, Paul says, but he found himself merrily (and rather blindly) going along for the ride. “When I set out [to make the film] I had as much of an idea of what’s coming next as Ralph does when he splats his ink out onto the page and goes, ‘OK, where am I going?’ ” Paul says. “It was very open, very exploratory in the early stages. It was only in the latter stag-

es we started putting fences around certain stories and holding on to certain things that we knew were vital parts of the film we wanted to make. The whole thing, in the end, dictated its own structure.” That’s similar to how Steadman works (the opening scene is, just as Paul says, Steadman splattering ink onto paper and then figuring out what he wants to draw). In fact, the director eventually saw Steadman’s artistic process informing his own. “I made this film, in the end, as a ref lection of Ralph’s art,” Paul says. “It was my way of taking what he does and taking it to a new medium. It is hopefully a filmic equivalent to Ralph’s art process.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

‘Annie Parker’ tells only half the story of a quest to cure cancer Film Review

WWW.SONYCLASSICS.COM

ENTERTAINMENT ONE FILMS

Mary-Claire King is an American woman who did something extraordinary. After years of painstaking research, she discovered the BRCA1 gene, the inherited mutation that indicates an elevated risk for breast and ovarian cancer, proving that such cancers are passed down from generation to generation. Early on, “Decoding Annie Parker” sets its course on two narrative paths: one that follows King (Helen Hunt) and her team during their nearly two-decade quest to find that cancer-related genetic link, and another that follows Annie Parker (Samantha Morton), a Toronto wife and mother whose family is shattered brutally and repeatedly by the disease. As the movie progresses, the balance tips increasingly toward Annie’s story, turning what could have been a double-sided portrait of two women’s perseverance in pursuit of an unknowingly shared goal into a sometimes moving but mostly familiar look at a single, lifelong struggle with the c-word. As directed by Steven Bernstein, “Decoding Annie Parker” frequently dangles on the precipice of falling

into Lifetime Original Movie territory. What saves it, over and over again, is its excellent cast, including Morton, Hunt, Aaron Paul, Corey Stoll, Rashida Jones and Alice Eve. But there’s a gnawing sense throughout “Decoding Annie Parker” that

the deeper, more interesting narrative isn’t being told. Annie’s cancer story, and all the romantic relationship drama that comes with it, sucks up all the emotional juice, but surely King’s groundbreaking research, which took 17 years to come to fruition, involved struggle, too. “Decoding Annie Parker” could have shown much more deeply that the fight against an often ruthless disease can be won by women attacking it from multiple sides. Instead, it sticks mostly to one track, taking audience members on a journey that, sadly, they already may know a little too well. JEN CHANEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

many peoples’ dream vacation lists, in part, because the food is so darn good. Dupont Circle’s newish The Mediterranean Way (1717 Connecticut Ave. NW; 202-5605715) brings the region’s delicacies to D.C. via tasty products like Greek tomato-strawberry sauce (shown, $12), Italian cheeses and a whole lot of olive oil (around $16 a bottle).

ANSWERS FROM THE SHOE BLOGGER

My best girlfriend at work, Jennifer, is quitting next week to start working as a freelancer. Manolo, this is the person who’s kept me going through bad bosses, layoff scares, and a number of vicious office-gossip slapfights, so I don’t know what I’m going to do when she’s not there. As a going-away gift I want to buy her a pair of fun flat sandals, something that she can wear right away to remind her of our good times together. — MARISSA Manolo says parting is such sweet sorrow, and few partings are more sorrowfully sweet than that of the office friend who is leaving for the pastures of greater greenness.

ROSIES AND ROCKERS

details (white leather chairs, crimson walls) make it clear that new clothing boutique Rosies and Rockers (2001 13th St. NW; 202-328-7625) isn’t a J. Crew clone. His-and-hers, “I’m-withthe-band” fashions from L.A. and New York labels such as Sourpuss, Kreepsville 666 and Steady include tough leather jackets, rockabilly frocks and — big surprise — lots of skull jewelry.

DEAR MANOLO

Tea Time Good On You

Take a Seat, or Two NOW THROUGH June 1, Urban Country is hosting its annual spring sale (7117 Arlington Road, Bethesda; 301-654-0500). The event includes 30 to 40 percent off farmhouse-chic brands like Lee Industries upholstered furniture, Hickory Chair Furniture Co. and C.R. Laine (including their Bradstreet Chair, shown, marked down to $1,468 from $1,678). Special orders also receive the sale treatment.

MAISON DE MODE is a roving boutique that hawks ethical fashions from luxury designers. The do-gooders are setting up a popup shop at Capella Georgetown now through Sunday (1050 31st St. NW; 10 a.m.6 p.m., free; 202-6172400, capellahotels. com). Expect ethically sourced jewelry from Lulu Frost and eco-faux leather handbags from Freedom of Animals (shown, $300).

TRY YOUR NEXT cocktail steeped, not stirred. Owl’s Brew tea blends seamlessly with alcohol for refreshing alternatives to cloying sodas ($9-$16, theowlsbrew.com). Available in three flavors (black tea with coconut and chai, English breakfast with lemon and lime, and Darjeeling with hibiscus), the mixes are made with all-natural ingredients such as agave, fresh spices and coconut water.

Happy you are that your friend has finally grasped the brass ring; sad because you have been left behind to deal with the same old boss pushing you around. And as you fork the final piece of going-away cake into your mouth at the party, you feel like crying. To whom will you pass the snarky notes in the boring meetings? With whom will you sit in the break room eating low-fat cherry yogurt? Who will now offer you the unsolicited but welcome fashion advice? (“Girlfriend, puce is not your color.”) Creepy Greg from tech support who breathes through his mouth and smells like mildew? Here is the Marmy from the Loeffler Randall in the celebratory gold, the perfect thing to send your dear friend on her way. ($156, zappos.com). Ask the Manolo a question at manolo@shoeblogs.com.

Snacks, Sips & A Sales Pitch

Wannabe entrepreneurs use home sales parties to push their products and socialize

On a recent weeknight in D.C.’s Palisades neighborhood, about a dozen women, many with flutes of prosecco in hand, swarmed around the table in Kristin Biggs’ dining room. They weren’t chowing down at a buffet, though. The diverse group (women 20- to 40-something and a toddler) was trying on gemstone necklaces and stacking on enameled bracelets at a buzzing home sales party for a costume bling company, Stella & Dot (stella dot.com). Biggs, a chatty former pharmaceutical sales pro, now works for Stella & Dot as an independent stylist, both throwing bashes like this and recruiting other reps. And while Biggs gave no organized sales pitch, she seemed as enthusiastic about finding guests a new bauble as pouring them bubbles. Choruses of “that’s adorable on you!” echoed

“I’m a sucker for these home-sales parties, but I definitely feel like I need to purchase something.” — PAGE HOLL A ND, A CONTRACTOR FROM GREAT FALLS, VA., WHO SAYS SHE’S EXPERIENCED SOME AGGRESSIVE SALES PITCHES AT DIRECTSALES PARTIES

around the room as women slipped on chokers and cocktail rings. “I li ke t hat t he shopping c om e s t o y o u ,” s a i d M a r i a Jose Ovalle, 35, an Alexandria blogger (ver ybusy mamablog .com), media strategist and frequent Stella & Dot customer. “It’s basically hanging out with friends, chatting and having a coffee or cocktail.” The concept of home-party sales started in 1948 with Tupperware, and the basic drill hasn’t changed much since: Someone, whether it’s a consultant or rep for the brand (or a friend of theirs), volunteers to host a bash. The host invites pals over to their place, and — often fueled by cheese, crackers and chardonnay — the rep shows off the merch. Besides jewelry, that might include cooking gadgets (Pam-

pered Chef), baskets (Longaberger) or women’s clothing (CAbi). The party thrower gets an excuse to have people over — and usually some free products as a reward. The sales rep then pockets a percentage of the event’s sales. “It’s a great way for wannabe entrepreneurs to start a business,” says Amy Robinson, the vice president of media relations for the D.C.based Direct Selling Association. “You don’t have to have that much product to start selling.” Plus, home sellers enjoy flexible hours. Consultants can care for kids during the day and sell bags a few nights a month, or work a day job and host a party or two a year.  All this “come over and see my stuff” can add up: Direct-selling companies netted $31 billion in U.S. sales in 2012. Consultants can earn as little as $200 a month and as much as several thousand, Robinson says. There are some 1,500 direct sales companies in the U.S., hawking everything from aromatherapy products to wine. The idea of browsing and buying in someone’s home, shoes kicked off, appeals to many people. It’s like

a real life HSN show, with snacks. “Shopping is often a chore for me,” says Sacha Cohen, the 40-something president of Grassfed Media (grassfedmediadc.com). “But if you add in the social element and a few drinks, that’s appealing.” Many of these companies specialize in clothing or accessories, meaning you’ll have old (or new) pals around to tell you whether those earrings make you look glam or garish. Plus, with many products, there’s a try-before-you-buy element that’s lacking in retail stores. Pampered Chef events mean cooking demos and food; parties for CAbi, a women’s fashions line, end with clothing try-on sessions. “It’s nice to feel the products, and try things on in a nonmall setting,” says Vienna homemaker/CAbi consultant Katherine Brown, who liked the parties so much she became a seller.

1,500

Number of direct-sales companies in the U.S. that hawk items such as costume jewelry, women’s clothing, cooking gear and wine.

Some guests do find that the pressure to buy something detracts from the pleasure of kicking back w ith girlfriends and paw ing through products. “I’m a sucker for these home-sales parties, but I definitely feel like I need to purchase something,” says Page Holland, a 40-something contractor from Great Falls, Va. “You want to help your friend’s business, but sometimes it’s a struggle. And I’ve experienced aggressive sales people.” Add to that the fact that many consultants would love to recruit you to host a party, and some people just prefer a bash that’s about laying down drinks, not credit cards. Still, at Biggs’ bungalow, the mood was far more cocktail party than sales convention. “I throw the jewelry out and people sample it, tell each other what looks good and what doesn’t,” she says. “It’s about connecting with other women.” And that night, she took orders for eight statement necklaces.

food lookout

Dave Broom With the Kentucky Derby just around the bend, we asked Dave Broom to shine a spotlight on the event’s stars: the cocktails. In his new book, “Whisky: The Manual” ($20, Mitchell Beazley), the spirits expert offers an in-depth history of the brown liquor, tips on how to best enjoy it and easyto-follow recipes (including a refreshing whiskey punch and a breezy mint julep). You tasted more than 100 whiskies for the book. When you sample a whiskey, do you spit it out, as one does with wine? With these, the finish is quite important so I had to swallow. I did need to reach for the Gaviscon [an antacid] on occasion. How do you convince people who think they don’t like whiskey to give it a chance? I say, “Give me 10 minutes and I’ll find one you’ll like.” One of the points in the book is whiskey is a lot more versatile than people think. It’s not this big scary guard

dog. It’s a puppy, really. It’s easier if they drink wine, because a lot of the flavors overlap. So if you like Rieslings, then you will like fragrant whiskies, like a Glenlivet. If you’re into big powerful cabernets, you will probably like bourbon. What’s a drink order that impresses you? If I was at a bar and someone ordered a blood and sand, I’d turn and give them a nod. And if someone walked up to a bar and asked for a Mamie Taylor, I’d hug them. [The drink is made with Scotch, lime and ginger beer.]

You’re a big proponent of mixing whiskey, and not just drinking it straight. Instead of whiskey being this drink you only drink after dinner or for an occasion, think of it as an alternative to a gin and tonic. And there’s this idea that thou shalt not add water to whiskey, but feel free to add more ice or dilute it if that makes it acceptable for you to enjoy. You should be drinking for pleasure, not for pain. You suggest mixing whiskey with some pretty uncommon ingredients. Some brands you thought should never be mixed actually show personality when you’re bold enough to add something. Green tea is a good example. It’s the default mixer in Asia, and coconut water is the default mixer in Latin America. It’s quite tough making drinks with them, because when they don’t work, they really don’t work. But when they’re right, there’s nothing better. Every glass teaches me something new. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

How do you explain whiskey’s recent surge in popularity? I think there has been a groundswell of interest in products with f lavor. Not to denigrate vodka, but a lot of talk about vodka is how beautiful the bottle is. I also think it’s a generational thing. It’s a completely new drink for this generation, because their parents didn’t want to drink what their parents drank.

We are currently looking for volunteers to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate treatment and safety of an investigational medication compared to placebo (an inactive look-alike substance) in patients who have not received or not responded to other therapy in relieving moderate to severe UC.

“Everything about their core business is predicated on creating cheap products with a limited lifespan. There just isn’t anything about that that is sustainable.” — COMMENTER KEN PETERS AT FASTCOEXIST.COM

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Are you sure you’re working against a rival, and not against yourself? What goes on today can tell you a great deal about your own intentions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Don’t ignore the needs of another, for in doing so, you also ignore your own. Things are more connected today than you might think. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You need something that another has laid claim to, but by day’s end, both parties can be satisfied. You’ll find a creative solution. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’ll receive an offer you find both surprising and highly attractive — but you won’t be able to move on it right away. Be patient. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may grow tired of the same old signs and warnings, but that has nothing to do with their validity. Pay attention to each of them!

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

A Millennial Blames His Woes on Being a Millennial Zac Efron told The Hollywood Reporter that his drinking, which led to a stint in rehab, didn’t stem from “one specific thing,” citing being in his 20s, being single and “going through life in Hollywood” as factors. Efron recently joined Alcoholics Anonymous and said “it’s changed my life.” “Things are so much easier now,” he said. Still, “it’s a never-ending struggle.” (EXPRESS)

Heroin likely played a role in the death of British model and TV personality Peaches Geldof, authorities said Thursday. Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate told an inquest into Geldof’s death that “there was recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.” (AP)

James Franco told Howard Stern on Wednesday that he would “swear on anything you ask that I have never had sex with Lindsay Lohan,” Us Weekly reported.
