Catching a Cab These Days Is Getting Harder and Harder

Police in Georgia are searching for a woman who drove for nearly 2 miles while a man clung to the hood of her car. Elton Kim said he saw a woman back into his wife’s SUV in a parking lot in Roswell two weeks ago and confronted her. He said he stood in front of her car, which had Alabama plates, and she accelerated into him. He said he jumped onto the hood and the woman started driving; he was eventually able to get off at a red light. (AP) CONNECTIONS

Details of Abuse Emerge

In Brief

Man bound, raped 3 women he kept at Ohio house for a decade, police say

WASHINGTON

17 Air Force Officers Stripped of Nuke Duties The Air Force stripped an unprecedented 17 officers of their authority to control — and, if necessary, launch — nuclear missiles after a string of unpublicized failings, including a remarkably dim review of their unit’s launch skills. The group’s deputy commander said it is suffering “rot” within its ranks. The 17 cases mark the Air Force’s most extensive sidelining ever of launch crew members, according to Lt. Col. Angie Blair, a spokeswoman for Air Force Global Strike Command. (AP)

A Cleveland man arrested after three women missing for a decade were found alive at his home was charged Wednesday with kidnapping and raping them. Prosecutors brought no charges against his brothers, saying there was no evidence they had any part in the crime. Ariel Castro, 52, was charged with four counts of kidnapping — covering all three captives and the daughter born to one of them while she was held — and three counts of rape against the three women. The former school bus driver owns the rundown home where the women were rescued Monday, after one of them broke through a screen door. Castro’s brothers, Pedro, 54, and Onil, 50, were also arrested after the women were rescued, but there was no evidence they had any part in the crime, and no charges were brought against them, Cleveland Prosecutor Victor Perez said. At a news conference, authorities gave few details, but police said earlier that the women were apparently bound with ropes and chains, and a city councilman briefed on the case, Brian Cummins, said that they were subjected to prolonged sexual and psychological abuse, suffered miscarriages and were kept in the basement for some time. “We know that the victims have confirmed miscarriages, but with who, how many and what conditions we don’t know,” he said. He added: “It sounds pretty gruesome.” Castro was in custody and couldn’t be reached for comment. A brother-in-law has said the family was “shocked” after hearing about the women at the home.

Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba said a paternity test on Castro was being done to establish who fathered the now 6-year-old child of captive Amanda Berry. Tomba said the women could remember being outside only twice during their entire time in captivity. “We were told they left the house and went into the garage in disguise,” he said. And their first opportunity to escape didn’t come until Monday, he said. The women were not kept in the same room but knew they were not alone, he said. Two of the young women, meanwhile, were welcomed home Wednesday. Neither woman spoke, and their families pleaded for patience and time alone. Wearing a bright yellow hooded sweatshirt, Gina DeJesus, who disappeared in 2004 and is in her early 20s, arrived to chants of “Gina!

Chest pain

Hospitals within the same city sometimes charge tens of thousands of dollars more for the same treatment, according to figures the government released publicly for the first time Wednesday. The federal list sheds new light on just how high a hospital bill might go — and whether it’s cheaper for the uninsured to go somewhere else. But it doesn’t answer why some hospitals charge 20 or even 40 times more than others. Jonathan Blum, director of the government’s Center for Medicare, said the higher costs don’t reflect better care and can’t be explained by regional economic differences alone. The average charges for joint replacement range from about $5,300 at an Ada, Okla., hospital to $223,000 in Monterey Park, Calif.

However, hospitals usually receive less money than they charge, because many of the bills are paid by their private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid at lower rates. “These charges really don’t have a direct relationship with the price for the average person,” said Chapin White of the nonprofit Center for Studying Health System Change. “I think the point is to shame hospitals.”

Price Discrepancies In the District, George Washington University’s average bill for a patient on a ventilator was $115,000, while Providence Hospital’s average charge for the same service was just under $53,000. For a lower joint replacement, GWU charged almost $69,000 compared with Sibley Memorial Hospital’s average of just under $30,000. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The national momentum on gay marriage has been limited mostly to the East and West coasts, but it looks as if that’s about to change. The Minnesota House votes today on legalizing gay marriage, and Gov. Mark Dayton could be signing a bill as early as next week. The Illinois Senate approved theirs earlier, and supporters think they’ll soon have enough votes in the House. Delaware became the 11th state to approve gay marriage earlier this week, joining such states as New York, Rhode Island and Washington. But Iowa has been the only state

A problem with a fiber-optics cable was behind an Internet outage that cut off civil war-ravaged Syria from the rest of the world for nearly 20 hours, state media said Wednesday. Internet service stopped abruptly Tuesday evening, prompting speculation that the regime had pulled the plug, possibly as a cover for military action. However, no large-scale military offensives were

including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Center for Democracy and Technology, wrote that they believe the blackout was a deliberate attempt to silence government criticism, according to The Washington Post. The Internet has also been an important tool in the bloody battle to topple President Bashar Assad, now in its third year. With the Syrian government restricting foreign media access to the country, anti-regime activists talking on Skype and amateur videos posted online became important sources of information.

$100M in U.S. Humanitarian Aid The Obama administration is providing $100 million in new Syria aid, U.S. officials said Wednesday, but the money is for humanitarian purposes only and not linked to arming Syrian rebels. The announcement will be made by Secretary of State John Kerry, left, today in Rome, where his diplomacy includes a meeting with Jordan’s foreign minister. The new funds will help support 1.4 million Syrian refugees, officials said. Total U.S. humanitarian assistance in the war will climb to $510 million. (AP)

disrupt communication among rebel fighters. The last big outage in November coincided with a major military operation near Damascus. Several open Web advocates,

Unlike the thieves in “Ocean’s Eleven,” it appears that those behind the carefully crafted $50 million diamond heist at Brussels Airport may not get a Hollywood ending. After three months of virtual silence on the matter, authorities struck this week, detaining at least 31 people in a three-nation sweep and recovering so many diamonds that traders are still figuring out the exact value. Officials said that among those held in Belgium, France and Switzerland are some with violent criminal pasts. Some 250 policemen were involved in a dawn raid in the Belgian capital. Many of the suspects were being interrogated late Wednesday. The evidence seized includes large sums of cash, precious stones and luxury cars. R AF CASERT (AP)

China Revs Up SUV Production 18% Makers court big-car customers despite environmental push Shanghai Automaker BYD is known for electric cars, but this year’s flagship model is the S7, a gas-powered SUV. It comes with an air purifier, radar to help with backing up and a digital TV. An onboard hard drive can hold 1,000 movies. This is China’s Year of the SUV. Whatever their specialties used to be, automakers ranging from global brands to Chinese rookies are scrambling to cash in on the

popularity of sport utility vehicles. The SUV boom is a detour from Beijing’s automotive master plan for China to become a leader in electric cars and sell smaller vehicles in an effort to curb smog and lower demand for imported oil. But the SUV’s image of safety appeals to prosperous drivers daunted by chaotic city streets, leaving smaller electrics struggling to draw buyers. In 2009, Chinese leaders set a goal of producing up to 5 million electric vehicles a year by 2020 but have informally backed away from that after development proved tougher than expected. The fatter profit margins for SUVs are a lifeline to a Chinese

The amount of vehicles sold in China last year that were SUVs, climbing to 2.5 million vehicles. That market share could rise as high as 25 percent soon, said Yale Zhang of Auto Foresight, a research firm in Shanghai. That would be double the size of SUVs’ 12.5 percent share of the U.S. market last year. (AP)

industry that is being squeezed as global brands make inroads into their market for smaller cars. Meanwhile, General Motors Co. expects annual China SUV sales to reach 4 million by 2020,

said Bob Socia, president of GM’s Chinese arm. “We are focusing on two key markets — luxury cars and SUVs,” Socia said. “They used to be considered niche markets, but now they are mainstream.” Overall, Chinese drivers bought more than 19 million cars last year while Americans bought 14.5 million. The U.S. is still the biggest market in financial terms, but China is expected to pass that soon. By 2020, automakers and analysts expect China’s annual sales to rise by 13 million to 14 million vehicles — more than all growth in the U.S., Brazil, India, Russia and the Middle East combined.

Taxi Fare Payment to Get Easier Washington It seemed this day might never come, but here we are: The D.C. Taxicab Commission voted Wednesday to publish regulations requiring all city cabs to accept creditand debit-card payments by Aug. 31. Assuming some other hiccup doesn’t arise in the coming weeks, cab owners will start installing commission-approved “modern taximeter systems” on June 1. They will have three months to come

into compliance. The new regulations include some fare changes that will make most rides more expensive. The base fare will be raised June 1 from $3 to $3.25, and a $1 fee for all additional riders beyond the first is being re-instituted after a yearlong hiatus. A new 25-cent-per-ride surcharge will also be collected to pay for the commission’s various costs. All other fees, such as baggage fees, have been eliminated, with the exception of telephone dispatch and snow emergency charges, and cabs are not permitted to pass on transaction fees to their riders. The increased charges are meant to offset the costs to driv-

action fees account for roughly half of that, with installation, maintenance and wireless fees accounting for the rest. The commission projects that universal credit-card acceptance will boost driver revenue, based on experiences in other jurisdictions. Ron Linton, chairman of the Taxicab Commission, said he has certified at least nine vendors to handle taxi payments. “While initially it had been determined that a single vendor was the appropriate way to implement the transition to a cashless system, the level of competition in the marketplace made it more practical to allow drivers and owners to

Fight to Be Heard in D.C. Suit: Housing agency denied residents use of ASL interpreters Washington Two hearing-impaired women have sued the District’s public housing agency, claiming that it has “routinely” denied them and other deaf residents sign-language interpreters as required under federal law. Jacqueline Young and Latheda Wilson filed suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court. The D.C. Housing Authority, they say, has subjected them to “degrading treatment” by forcing them to communicate with agency representatives through

“scribbled notes, attempts at lip reading, or bringing their children or other family members.” Those “inferior and ineffective means of communication,” they said, have interfered with their efforts to secure more-appropriate housing and have put their residency status at risk. They are joined in the lawsuit by the nonprofit group DeafREACH, which says the authority’s failure to provide the interpreters have required the group to divert resources from other programs. Dena Michaelson, a spokeswoman for the housing agency, said officials had not yet reviewed the lawsuit and typically do not comment on pending litigation.

Intruding on D.C. Affairs? Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, introduced a bill Tuesday that would ban abortions in D.C. after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The measure is similar to legislation introduced in the House by Rep. Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican. The legislation is a top priority of anti-abortion groups. District leaders oppose it, calling it an unwelcome intrusion on local affairs. (AP)

The websites of local radio stations WTOP and Federal News Radio were hacked this week, potentially infecting the computers of people who visited their website within the past two days. A statement posted on WTOP’s website Tuesday said that users who visited its page using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser may have been affected by the attack. “WTOP.com is currently dealing with a malicious cyber attack,” the statement said. “We are working diligently to contain and stop the attack, and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.” WTOP and Federal News radio did not say how many people were affected or when the hack was detected. Both radio stations are owned by Hubbard Radio. HAYLEY TSUKAYAMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Circulator May Grow Dramatically Washington The D.C. Council appears poised to seek a major expansion of Circulator bus routes into new neighborhoods and the national Mall, but the move could come with a price: Some fares could be as much as double the current rates. The popular red and gray buses supplement traditional bus service by shuttling passengers between entertainment and shopping districts. The buses, which currently charge $1 per ride, reach Woodley Park, Georgetown, Downtown, Capitol Hill, Navy Yard and the Skyland area of Ward 7. But today, a council commit-

The D.C. Council is considering a major expansion of the Circulator bus system.

tee is expected to support dramatically increasing the scope of the service. Under the plan, crafted by Council member Mary M. Cheh, Circulator bus routes would be

extended to U Street and Howard University, Southwest, Glover Park and the National Cathedral. The city also is working with the National Park Service to launch a new route on the Mall, where it would shuttle tourists to monuments and museums. “The combination of those expansions will put the Circulator very extensively around the District,” said Cheh, chairwoman of the Committee on Transportation and the Environment. “The ability for people to get around is absolutely key to our continued economic growth, and the Circulator has been very popular because it’s very reliable.” TIM CR AIG (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Nuanced Food Fight A push to regulate food trucks extends past lunch to talk about public space

Public Opinion

City officials say it’s time to put the proposed regulations before D.C. Council for a vote. The Committee on Business, Consumer and Regulatory Affairs took public comment on the issue until April 8. (T WP)

the Restaurant Association have dominated the discussion in social media — and polarized the conversation. But that shouldn’t obscure the fact that streets and parks are public property. “I think people are making this a ‘one group versus another group’ [situation],” said Pedro Ribeiro, spokesman for Gray. “It’s not.” In fact, public-space advocates, the AAA, the biking community, residents and others have a stake in how the streets are regulated. The goal should be to come up with solutions that involve actual input from citizens, not just competing businesses, said Shane Farthing, executive director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. “What’s the public space’s utility to the city? What’s going to be the best use for residents? Do people want this?” asked Farthing. “We don’t seem to have that sort of a demand-based analysis.” “There’s a lot of folks who I think would prefer if some of the space ded-

It has been dubbed a “War on Food Trucks” by some. But the battle over proposed regulations for the District’s popular vendors — which is set to be heard by a D.C. Council committee Friday — isn’t just a matter of whether the government is trying to overregulate a fledgling industry or if brick-andmortar restaurants are trying to stick it to their wheeled competitors. At its core, it’s a discussion of public space and how the city should parcel it out. After lobbying from all sides, Mayor Vincent Gray proposed a set of foodtruck regulations in March that would update rules that date back several decades. Among other things, they would limit the number of trucks that can be in certain areas at a given time. Restaurant owners, who have long complained that food trucks aren’t burdened by the same regulatory hoops, cheered. “We want some kind of review process … because our members have to go through the same thing,” said Kyle Rees, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington’s communications manager. Many food-truck owners, though, argue that the proposed rules are overly restrictive, and they have launched a rather media-savvy campaign to express their discontent. As they see it, the industry could collapse if the rules move forward. We “understand better than anybody what the real-world impact will be, and it’s not good,” said Doug Povich, chairman of the Food Truck Association of Metropolitan Washington and co-owner of the Red Hook Lobster Pound truck. Indeed, at least one truck, Pinup Panini, has already shuttered its walk-up window in anticipation of the changes. Thus far, the competing narratives from the Food Truck Association and

Rules of the Road The proposed plan identifies about two dozen locations that would serve as Mobile Roadway Vending zones, where food trucks could sell meals between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. without fretting about parking-meter time limits. Food-truck owners seeking those spots would pay $25 to enter a monthly lottery, and officials said as few as two or as many as more than five trucks would be selected for each zone each weekday. Under the rules, lottery winners would pay $150 per vehicle per month to park in the zones. Vendors would be allowed to sell meals in some areas outside those zones, as long as they park in legal spots and abide by meter restrictions. But those trucks would have to be at least 500 feet from the vending zones. And in the Central Business District, where the majority of food trucks roam, there would have to be 10 feet of unobstructed sidewalk adjacent to each truck. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

icated to [car] lane miles and to parking could be repurposed,” Farthing said. But it isn’t clear if that is the case, or if that would mean more bike lanes, retail, food trucks, cafe space or expanded sidewalks. Which is what makes Friday’s public roundtable pivotal. At the Wilson Building, a variety of people are likely to chime in with their feelings about public space, many of whom might not have any affiliation to food at all. After the hearing, the D.C. Council has until June 22 to vote on the regulations, according to the chief of staff of Vincent Orange, who chairs the committee. Ribeiro, for his part, thinks the hearing will be an important first step to fairness. “The comments have ranged all over the place from ‘these suck’ to ‘you guys need to regulate more. They are kind of spread across a huge spectrum,” he said. “I think the hearings are going to shed a lot of light.” CLINTON YATES (E XPRESS)

The Nationals’ game Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers was rained out and rescheduled for today at 4:05 p.m. at Nationals Park.

That’s a Clown Policy, Bro Fan outcry causes the Nats to reverse rainout ticket rule Nationals After overwhelming reaction on social media and their box office phones, the Nationals on Wednesday reversed the unpopular ticket policy they announced after Tuesday night’s rainout and now will allow fans to exchange unused tickets from Tuesday for any future ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. “We heard our fans,” Nationals COO Andrew Feffer said. “I think

it’s always important from a customer service standpoint to listen. We responded quickly and decisively. We said, if our fans want that option for a future game, if it’s that important to them, we certainly want to provide that.” Tuesday night’s rainout will be made up today at 4:05 p.m., and tickets from Tuesday night will, of course, be honored then as well. The Nationals in previous seasons had allowed fans to exchange tickets from postponed games for seats at other games. With attendance this season growing, though, the Nationals changed their policy so that rainout tickets would be honored only at the makeup game.

On Deck Today D. Fister 4-0, 2.48 ERA

D. Haren 3-3, 5.01 ERA

They had heard from upset fans last year who had tried to exchange tickets but could not sit in the same seat or section. Feffer said the team tried the more restrictive policy to alleviate that concern. “Certainly our intention from the very beginning was to ensure our fans had the best seats and the seats that they had purchased,” Feffer said. “What we had found last year with a lot of our fans who were coming for future game exchang-

es, a lot of them were disappointed their same seats or same sections weren’t available as attendance had grown. It had always been our intention to make sure, as attendance grew this year, that that would be less of an issue.” In the 24 hours after Tuesday night’s game with the Detroit Tigers was postponed, the Nationals learned they had inadvertently created a more irksome issue. Fans complained about the difficulty of attending a weekday afternoon game. ESPN’s Buster Olney called the policy “a disservice.” The New York Post called on commissioner Bud Selig to get involved. By Wednesday afternoon, the

Nationals released a statement reversing the policy and included an apology to fans. “The fan experience is what defines the brand, the team,” Feffer said. “We’re a young team in Washington. We’re kind of growing up together, learning to do this. “It’s a nice problem to have. We haven’t talked about what happens when you have high-capacity crowds every night at Nationals Park. That hasn’t been an issue up until last year. And so those are part of things we learn together and address. How do we best provide that value to our fans and our customers?”

“We heard our fans. I think it’s always important from a customer service standpoint to listen.” — N ATION A L S COO A NDRE W FEFFER

Feffer asked fans to recognize that attending a game other than Thursday’s makeup with a ticket from Tuesday’s rainout may be more difficult than past exchanges. The Nationals, averaging an attendance of 31,812, have drawn more fans through this point in the year than in any other season. Unlike in past years, “subject to availability” is a relevant clause. “Attendance ... is at record highs,” Feffer said. “Just recognize that if you come and don’t plan ahead of time, it very well could be you could show up on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday and the game could be sold out. Or you might not even be able to get in the same section. That’s an important part to point out.” ADAM KILGORE ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Taking Attendance Into Consideration: The Nationals’ reasoning for originally changing their ticket policy was higher demand and decreased capacity. Washington just had its highest average April attendance (31,812), but the stadium’s 76.6 percent capacity ranks only 10th in the league. Since moving to the District in 2005, the Nats have yet to rank in the top 10 in the league in year-end attendance average. (E XPRESS)

Happ was taken there after being struck on the left side of the head by a ball off the bat of Desmond Jennings during Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

RGIII Helps Raise Money for Cancer Society Redskins Robert Griffin III’s knee is still feeling fine. His ability to turn a room upside down is better than ever. The Washington Redskins quarterback made an appearance — and quite an impact — Wednesday at a luncheon for the American Cancer Society. He raised $33,000 in a matter of minutes, more than half of the $60,000 tallied during the auction portion of the fundraiser. The crowning moment came when a man from Texas paid $15,000 for a pair of pink cleats that Griffin wore in a game last season. “You don’t think that a pair of

cleats can make that kind of difference,” Griffin said. “But I guess they were highly sought-after.” Eighteen people then paid $1,000 each to pose with Griffin for a photograph that the quarterback will sign. He flashed his charismatic smile for each flash of the camera. Griffin The guest of honor was Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Dan Snyder. A breast cancer survivor, Tanya Snyder received the society’s Mother of the Year award.

$400,000 for cancer research. Griffin also showed off his playful side, flashing bunny ears behind his fiancee as they posed with Tanya Snyder. And, of course, there was the inevitable football question: How’s the rehab coming along with his surgically reconstructed right knee? “I’m doing great. The knee feels fine,” said Griffin, whose stated goal is to return by Week 1 of the regular season. “It’s about taking it slow, and each day is a better day because the knee feels better and you do more things. It’s just a process that I’m going through.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

Get Way Too Real With Ma and the Bard

SCOTT SUCHMAN

CATOCTIN CREEK

“The Winter’s Tale” is one of Shakespeare’s later plays, a sometimes confusing story of unfounded jealousy, betrayal, mistaken identity and magic. The Mother’s Day hook is that it’s also about a mom and a daughter coming together after years apart, even when the vagaries of the universe seem to be conspiring against their reunion. You’ll both probably cry. Shakespeare Theatre’s Lansburgh Theatre, 450 7th St. NW; through June 23, $43-$95; 202-547-1122, Shakespearetheatre.org. (Archives) Compiled by Express’ Fiona Zublin

1 “Rosemary’s Baby”

In the 1968 thriller, Rosemary (Mia Farrow) has a baby! And an awesomely cropped hairdo. And an unwitting deal with Satan. Whoops.

2 “Star Wars”

In 1977, millions of little girls began looking for something — anything! — circular that could be worn over the ears, thanks to Princess Leia’s cinnamon-bun hairstyle.

Now he wants humans to set sights on Mars. And soon. He details his plan for getting there in his new book, “Mission to Mars,” which he’ll discuss Thursday at National Geographic. His goal is a permanent U.S.-led presence on Mars by 2035 — just in time for “the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions [to the moon],” he points out — and he’s got some ideas to make that happen.

Pentagon Memorial

Did You Know? iiEvery day at 9:37 a.m., the moment when the plane struck the building, the pools of gently burbling water beneath each bench stop burbling for one minute.

AN ELEGANT TRIBUTE TO 9/11 VICTIMS

This oasis of reverent calm is dedicated to those who died when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial’s 184 benches, each representing one victim, are arranged along the hijacked plane’s flight path and ordered by age, starting with 3-year-old Dana Falkenberg and ending with John Yamnicky, who was 71. Every detail has meaning. If you can see the Pentagon while reading the name on the bench, the victim was in the building; if the Pentagon is behind you, he or she was a passenger. The wall along the edge of the memorial measures from 3 inches to 71 inches high, for the victims’ ages.

There’s parking on-site on weekends, holidays and between 5 and 7 p.m. on weekdays. At all other times, park at Pentagon City Mall, about a 10-minute walk away. (There are five handicap spaces at the memorial.) Call 202-741-1004 for a cellphone audio tour.

Weekend Pass | entertainment Released in March, Stern’s fourth album, “The Chronicles of Marnia,” fuses that busy-fingers sound with chirpy vocals and sharp lyrics about creativity. Working with indie-rock producer Nicolas Vernhes, (Dirty Projectors, Deerhunter), Stern shows a new fluidity in her playing and a new inventiveness in her singing, which ranges from a soft

Country crossover star Taylor Swift has carved out a niche penning maddeningly infectious songs about approximately a zillion relationships, most of them unrequited or over. Granted, everyone’s a little overdramatic in their late teens, but now that Swift is 23 we think it’s time for her songs to mature along with her. Here are some suggested titles to inspire her — maybe she’ll get to writing before this weekend’s shows at Verizon Center. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

“Hey, Sometimes Relationships Don’t Work Out (I Hope We Can Still Be Facebook Friends)” “I Am Definitely Going to Learn From This Mistake So I Never Make It Again” “I Have a Crush on You, but You Have a Girlfriend So I’ll Be an Adult About It and Keep My Mouth Shut” “Couples Counseling (Let’s Look Into It)” “Check Out How I Have More Than a One-Octave Range” “52” “Your Girlfriend Seems Kind of Annoying, but It’s Really None of My Business”

Marnie Stern’s new record finds the guitarist building on her technical finger-tapping technique and evolving into a more polished singer.

‘Chronicles’ Of Creativity Marnie Stern’s blazing guitarwork matures, along with her writing Music Indie guitar whiz Marnie Stern has watched her guitar collection dwindle down from several fine instruments to one beloved model. “I used to have a bunch of guitars but I’ve had to sell them or they’ve broken,” she says with a sigh. “So, now I have just one — a Jazzmaster that has a really good sound.” Though originally marketed to jazz musicians in the late ’50s, the Fender

— MARNIE STERN, ON HER TECHNICAL STYLE

KILL ROCK STARS

Songs She Will Never, Ever Write

“You want to come up with interesting guitar parts that are challenging, because it’s much more fun to play them.”

INDIES & ARTIES

Jazzmaster proved more popular with rock acts: ’60s surf bands, 1970s punks like Elvis Costello, and later with noise bands like Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. Stern doesn’t play it out of deference to her heroes. She likes that “the frets are really thin and close together, so it’s easy to slide up and down the neck.” That’s important for Stern, who has developed a complicated finger-tapping technique that turns her Jazzmaster into a percussion instrument. Rather than fret with one hand and strum or pick with the other, she moves her hands manically around the neck to launch a volley of notes. It’s as musically distinctive as it is technically impressive.

Inside Track “The Chronicles of Marnia” opens with the frantic “Year of the Glad,” which features Stern switching from finger-tapping to heavy riffing while delivering a chorus of staccato vowel sounds. It’s odd but deviously catchy, as she delivers a bracing purpose statement: “Got to make it great! On a mission!”

croon to a flurry of whoops and cries. “I don’t enjoy the recording process very much,” she admits. On the other hand, “I enjoy the moment when I’m writing the song and it connects for me. That’s my favorite part of everything.” Songwriting begins with Stern and her Jazzmaster. “You want to come up with interesting guitar parts that are challenging, because it’s much more fun to play them,” she says. “But something technically complicated doesn’t necessarily complement the song.” While many artists resent the grind of touring and playing the same songs night after night, Stern savors the opportunity to relive the moment of creation over and over. Live, “you get more comfortable with them,” she says. “The songs just take on a new life.” Such a physical style of playing means Stern usually leaves the stage exhausted. “There’s definitely a high energy level,” she says. “My voice is gone from having to scream over bad sound systems, but as long as we’re energized and into it, the crowd really responds.” STEPHEN M. DEUSNER (FOR EXPRESS)

You might even know that their dad decided the sisters would achieve tennis stardom long before they could ask, “Hey, what’s this fuzzy yellow ball?” The documentary “Venus and Serena” reveals more by looking at their private lives (Venus has an endearing passion for karaoke) and how their success has sparked discussions on race, gender and class within the sport.

Candide (Ryan Alan Jones) finds adventure, left, and sex, right, on his journey through life.

‘Candide,’ Indeed Telling a story in verse is difficult, especially when the story’s as funny, rambling and conceptually complex as Voltaire’s “Candide,” the French satirical novel published in 1759. Playwright T.J. Edwards has put together a verse adaptation of the play, about a young optimist named Candide who believes everything is for the best until numerous hardships force him to acknowledge that there is no rhyme or reason to the world. In honor of the play — “Optimism! or Voltaire’s Candide,” on now at Spooky Action Theater — and of Edwards’ efforts, we wrote the following article in verse, as well. Your move, Voltaire. Making an audience love a satire Is so uniquely challenging Because you want it to inspire While making fun of everything. Let’s take “Candide,” the Voltaire tale (It’s now adapted for the stage And in D.C.) — it’s hard to nail. That balance can be hard to gauge. For Michael Chamberlain, director, The key to satire is heart. And so sincerity’s his vector While making sure the show’s still smart. The crux of the whole thing is balance: “The gravitas of the events,” He says, taxes the writer’s talents. The writing must be light, not dense.

An Aside “The characters think very quickly,” Chamberlain says. It won’t make sense Unless the dialogue flows slickly: “The play’s ideas are very dense.” This T.J. Edwards adaptation Is long, and wholly told in verse. This lends some speed to the narration, Some vigor — rhyming’s not a curse. And that is why we thought we’d try it Just for this feature. Do you buy it?

He says there are two easy traps, And both will make your show a drag: Be earnest through it all, like saps, Or worse, make everything a gag. “Candide” is full of melodrama, Of violence and death and strife. And yet it doesn’t milk the trauma, It treats it as a part of life. The characters philosophize At first that all is for the best. Eventually they realize Philosophy makes you depressed “They stop the intellectualizing, Get back to practicality,” Says Chamberlain. And it’s surprising, Because there’s the sincerity. The truth that lies with “Candide” Reminds us that we must concede That life is hard and quite erratic And (lucky for the play) dramatic, And that there’s nothing we can do. That’s Voltaire’s truth. Chamberlain’s, too. FIONA ZUBLIN (E XPRESS)

COURTESY BELA FLECK

WHO THE HECK IS ...

BELA FLECK?

Bela Fleck makes what Mumford & Sons do to the banjo sound criminal. The 54-year-old doesn’t just play the instrument for oldtimey flair; he’s always pushing it in new directions and trying new genres. Get acquainted with the plucky master ahead of his show with The Marcus Roberts Trio at Strathmore on Friday.

The Flecktones It’s best to start with his main gig, The Flecktones. The quartet — bass man Victor Wooten, percussionist Future Man and harmonica player Howard Levy — are all virtuosos who manage to fuse together multiple genres into something unique.

African Travels Fleck visited Africa — the ancestral home of the banjo — and came back with a documentary, “Throw Down Your Heart,” and an album of the same name. Fleck made field recordings of the countless African musicians he met, integrating his instrument with traditionally African sounds.

Classical Bluegrass On 1998’s “Perpetual Motion,” Fleck went classical, covering works by Bach, Chopin, Brahms and Beethoven.

The Marcus Roberts Trio His most recent collaboration, with The Marcus Roberts Trio, resulted in the 2012 jazz album “Across the Imaginary Divide,” which proves that even the banjo can swing.

Tours de Spirits NEW COLUMBIA DISTILLERS 1832 Fenwick St. NE; 202-733-1710, Greenhatgin.com. (Rhode Island Ave.)

The District’s first distillery in more than a century is perched in the northeastern Ivy City neighborhood. Visitors are guided through the distillation process from grain to Green Hat gin and can volunteer to bottle spirits. “That’s always a hit,” says co-owner and distiller John Uselton. “I get emails from people telling me how much they enjoyed being a part of it.” Hours/ Admission: Saturdays, 1-4 p.m. Free. Buy a Bottle: Green Hat gin, $34 for 750 ml.

“There’s so much gimmickry in this business. We try to debunk the marketing around the liquor industry.” — CHRIS COOK , PRESIDENT OF BLACKWATER DISTILLING

BLACKWATER DISTILLING BLACKWATER DISTILLING

The world of wine can intimidate newbies, with its French phrases and terms like “blowzy” and “lightstruck.” Liquor, on the other hand, revolves around concepts nearly anyone can grasp, especially when distilleries open their doors to the public. “Distillery tours are more informal and there are more jokes” than with winery tours, says Catoctin Creek owner Scott Harris. Here are five local tours that can increase your alcohol comprehension without you needing to know what “encépagement” means. NE VIN MARTELL (FOR E XPRES S)

This hourlong tour involves learning and liquid appreciation. Guests at the organic and kosher distillery begin by seeing and sniffing every step of the whiskey-making process. The guide may open one of the fermenters for a peek. “The grain looks like oatmeal and smells like beer,” Harris says. After tutorials on barreling, aging and bottling, visitors sample the distillery’s Mosby’s Spirit, Roundstone Rye and Watershed Gin. Hours/Admission: Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.; Saturdays, noon–5 p.m. $5 for adults, kids are free. Buy a Bottle: Mosby’s Spirit, $38.10 for 750 ml.

“There’s so much gimmickry in this business,” says president Chris Cook. “We try to debunk the marketing around the liquor industry.” Tour guides at this organic distillery on the Eastern Shore lead visitors through every facet of production — from the pinup girls adorning the labels to the ways different kinds of water affect flavor. At the end, you’ll get to try the Sloop Betty vodka and a prototype of the honey vodka, available this summer. Hours/Admission: Every other Saturday, noon-5 p.m. $5, which can be applied toward the cost of a bottle of vodka. Buy a Bottle: Sloop Betty vodka, $28 for 750 ml.

BLACK WATER DISTILLING

9 River Lane, Sperryville, Va.; 540-987-8554, Copperfox.biz.

Located at a fork in the Thornton River, this former apple juice plant now turns out something stronger: whiskey. The malting of barley with apple wood and cherry wood smoke gives the space a unique scent. “It’s a beautiful fragrance, like an incense,” says founder Rick Wasmund. The tour thoroughly explores the ba rrel aging process, which gives the spirit its amber hue and savory flavor. Guests can’t legally drink at the distillery, but they can purchase a bottle in the gift shop on the way out and host a tasting at home instead. Hours/Admission: Mondays through Thursdays, at noon, 2 and 4 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays, on the hour from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Free. Buy a Bottle: Rye whiskey, $45 for 750 ml.

GEORGE WASHINGTON’S DISTILLERY AND GRISTMILL 5514 Mount Vernon Memorial Highway, Alexandria; 703-780-2000, Mountvernon.org.

Most people think of George Washington as our first president and a war hero, but he was also a whiskey whiz. When he retired to Mt. Vernon in 1797, he founded what became one of the largest and most successful distilleries of its time, producing up to 11,000 gallons of whiskey annually. Visitors get to see how spirits were produced two centuries ago. “Everything is done by hand,” says vice president for marketing Rebecca Aloisi. “Wood is chopped and water is carried in big wooden buckets; there’s nothing automated about the process.” Hours/Admission: Mondays through Sundays, 10 a.m.– 5 p.m., from April 1 to Oct. 31. $5 for adults, $2 for children ages 6-11, children 5 and younger are free. Buy a Bottle: Unaged rye whiskey, $95 for 375 ml.

The novel was a natural transition for Ritter, whose 2007 album “The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter” could serve as a musical companion to the book. He’ll play two shows at 9:30 Club this weekend, in support of the new “The Beast in Its Tracks.”

Small-Business Boom

Guest Work In a TV world where everyone wants to push the envelope, HBO is amping it down. “Family Tree” (Sun., 10:30 p.m.) is a gentle and effortlessly charming mockumentary from Christopher Guest, the genius behind “Best in Show.” The show spins around endearing sad sack Tom Chadwick (Chris O’Dowd, above, the lovestruck cop from “Bridesmaids”). Tom has lost his job and his girlfriend; he’s uneager to move forward because dating would By Marc “get in the way of my Silver wallowing, which I have really grown attached to.” In episode one, a great aunt dies, leaving a box of “bits and bobs,” including “an early prototype” Victorian dildo and a photo of a distinguished gent assumed to be Tom’s great-grandfather. Only it turns out to be Prince George; great-granddad was the photographer. In the eight-part series Tom will investigate his forebear and banter wistfully with friends like lifelong pal Pete, who on their first day of school saw that Tom was being teased for wetting himself and told him: “I do it all the time, sometimes on purpose because I enjoy the sensation.” “With that a bond was formed,” recalls Tom. With that sort of sweet and loopy dialogue, a bond was formed between me and “Family Tree.” Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse

There’s no business like small business. Mix the high stakes of running a small business with a dash of family drama and throw in a camera crew, and you get a hit reality television show. Turning small-business owners into stars has become a winning formula for television producers, and some businesses featured in them are cashing in, too. Sales explode after just a few episodes air, transforming these nearly unknown small businesses into household names. Below is a sampling of reality TV shows that feature small businesses and the average number of people, via Nielsen, that watch each. JOSEPH PISANI (AP) ‘AMERICAN PICKERS’ Viewers: 3.8 million Mike Wolfe and business partner Frank Fritz, below, drive around the country looking for antiques and collectibles to buy and then resell at their store, Antique Archeology. The show (Mon., 9 p.m.) has aired on History since 2010.

‘WELCOME TO SWEETIE PIE’S’ Viewers: 783,000 A&E NETWORKS

RAY BURMISTON

Broadcast Muse

‘DUCK DYNASTY’ Viewers: 8.3 million “Duck Dynasty” revolves around the Robertson family as they hunt, camp and make duck calls for Duck Commander, the West Monroe, La.-based business that the family’s bearded patriarch, Phil Robertson, far right, founded in 1972. The show, now airing repeats on Wednesdays, recently wrapped Season 3, and the finale was the most-watched program in A&E’s history.

The show, which airs on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, follows Robbie Montgomery, above, as she and her son run two restaurants in St. Louis and work to open a third. The series’ third season is set to air in July.

‘JERSEYLICIOUS’ Viewers: 355,000 Style’s “Jerseylicious” (Sun., 7 p.m.) gives viewers a peek into the lives and drama of the employees (including Tracy Dimarco, below) at The Gatsby Salon in Green Brook, N.J.

‘BLACK INK CREW’

Viewers: 1.6 million

Debuting earlier this year (and now streaming on Vh1.com), this show takes viewers inside the lives of tattoo artists (including Walter Miller, above) at Black Ink Tattoo Studio in Harlem, N.Y.

MTV

entertainment lookout

MTV’s original VJs, from left, J.J. Jackson, Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Martha Quinn and Alan Hunter are pictured in 1981. The latter four co-authored “VJ.”

The Original Voices of MTV The first wave of VJs recalls how the channel altered pop culture — for better and worse Book Review Long before Snooki, there was music. It seems quaint to remember a time when Americans didn’t have cable TV, before music videos and reality stars. But the original MTV VJs describe the beginning of one of the most influential media experiments of all time in “VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave” ($25, Atria Books). Video jockeys Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter and Martha Quinn — with help from rock writer Gavin Edwards — provide an oral history of the launch of the network that pioneered unscripted entertainment and brought Michael Jackson’s dance moves and Jon Bon Jovi’s hair into our living rooms. The book is an easy-to-read compilation of interviews with the VJs. A fitting subtitle would be “Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll,” as the book is chock-full of the crazy stories you’d expect — from David Lee Roth’s groupie sexcapades to back-

stage cocaine binges, infidelity and post-MTV career difficulties. The authors celebrate what brought them together: their passion for music and the people who make it. They marvel at their incredible access to music legends and popular bands, from Madonna’s first club dates to covering Live Aid. They dish about some of music’s biggest names, but say the more famous and talented performers — think Ja g ge r, B ono, Dylan, McCartney — were also the nicest. The book is dedicated to J.J. Jackson, the fifth original VJ, who died of an apparent heart attack in 2004. “VJ” will evoke nostalgia in readers who remember the ’80s. Grateful for their role in the MTV revolution, the authors say when watching it today, they don’t recognize the network they helped build. Reality hits like “Jersey Shore” and “Teen Mom” have replaced most of the videos. But MTV is always evolving. As Goodman notes, the VJs shoulder some of the blame: “We’re the reason you have no attention span. And you can pin reality TV on us, too. You’re welcome.” BROOKE LEFFERTS (AP)

“Tabloid journalism, and its viral impact through the Internet in particular, has changed Broadway since 1992.” — ALEC BALDWIN AT HUFFINGTONPOST.COM

summarizes his experience in the Broadway production of Lyle Kessler’s “Orphans” — which will close Sunday, about six weeks earlier than scheduled. Baldwin says the show suffered from Internet gossip and a bad review in The New York Times.

“Puma currently [supplies] kits for several African football teams … but they have yet to fully penetrate a big name team and now they have with Arsenal. This might be just what Arsenal needs to return to dominate the Premier League as they did a decade ago.” — BLAKE AT FOOTBALL-SHIRTS.CO.UK

reacts to news that the Premier League club Arsenal signed a record uniform contract with Puma, which will bring them 30 million pounds ($46.7 million) a year as part of a five-year deal.

DIFFICULT

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may be able to square away a difficult arrangement today thanks to a surprise teammate who comes through for you just in time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’re likely searching for something that is very difficult to come by — but if you keep it up, you’ll find that and something more. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A little charm goes a long way today. By the end of the day, you’ll realize that you’ve still got it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’re waiting on a good friend to do what he or she promised — but you must realize that it’s going to take a little while longer.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re going to have to take turns with someone who is not as facile as you are, which means you’re going to have to be quite patient. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The game you are playing today will require you to explore some dark and rather stormy areas of your own personality. Do you dare? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may have to arrange things from afar today, but if others are willing to do their parts, you should have little trouble. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) A great deal depends upon your teambuilding skills today. You can accomplish something memorable if you have the right partners.
