Defense Rests in Edwards Case Former presidential candidate, mistress not called to testify
=h[[diXehe"D$9$ John Edwards’ defense team rested Wednesday without calling the two-time Democratic presidential candidate or his one-time mistress to the witness stand, a sign of confidence after presenting little more than two days of testimony and evidence. The defense had called a series of witnesses aimed at shifting the jury’s focus from the lurid details of a political sex scandal to the legal question of whether Edwards’ actions violated federal campaign ﬁnance laws. Prosecutors spent nearly three weeks trying to convince a jury that Edwards masterminded a conspiracy to use nearly $1 million secretly provided by two wealthy donors to help hide his pregnant mistress,

One of life’s simple pleasures just got a little sweeter. After years of waffling research on coffee and health, even some fear that java might raise the risk of heart disease, a big study finds the opposite: Coffee drinkers are a little more likely to live longer. The study of 400,000 people is the largest ever done on the issue, and the results should reassure any coffee lovers who think it’s a guilty pleasure that may do harm. “Our study suggests that’s really not the case,” said lead researcher Neal Freedman of the National Cancer Institute.

9ed\b_Yj_d]H[i[WhY^ The new study shows that coffee drinkers are likely to live longer, going against other studies that said the opposite. It’s not that earlier studies were wrong. There is evidence that coffee can raise LDL, or bad cholesterol, and blood pressure at least short-term, and those in turn can raise the risk of heart disease. But few studies have looked at coffee and the risk of dying of any cause, let alone specific diseases. Some of those have involved too few deaths to make firm comparisons. (AP)

Even a single cup a day seemed to lower risk a little: 6 percent in men and 5 percent in women. The strongest effect was in women who had four or ﬁve cups a day — a 16 percent lower risk of death. In the study, it seemed that coffee drinkers were more likely to die at any given time. But they also

Once researchers took those things into account, a clear pattern emerged: Each cup of coffee per day nudged up the chances of living longer.

Bosnians hail case against ex-general charged in massacre J^[>W]k["D[j^[hbWdZi He’s no longer the swaggering general who held Sarajevo “in the palm of his hand” during Bosnia’s 199295 war, which left 100,000 dead. Yet as his long-awaited genocide trial began Wednesday, Ratko Mladic still managed to reopen old wounds with the flick of his hand. The frail, 70-year-old defendant had an angry exchange of hand gestures with the families of massacre victims in the public gallery, separated by the bulletproof glass in the courtroom. “Vulture!” said one woman. Watching the war crimes trial on television in Bosnia, Mevlija Malic added: “Not even an animal would behave like that.” Mladic is accused of commanding Bosnian Serb troops who waged a campaign of murder to drive out Muslims and Croats. His troops rained shells and bullets down on civilians in the 44-month-long siege of the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo,
and killed 8,000 Muslim men and boys in July 1995, Europe’s worst massacre since World War II. That Mladic is jailed and on trial is seen as another victory for international justice.

9el[hIjeho Chuck Brown performed less frequently in his later years, but he still took to the stage regularly.
BRANDON WU/FOR TWP
Chuck Brown’s hit “Bustin’ Loose” helped mint the aggressive, urban sound of go-go. The song spent four weeks atop Billboard’s R&B singles chart in 1978, and in 1984, “it seemed to be everywhere: sang, played and carried in oversized, shoulder-mounted tape players and radios in every quadrant” of the District, The Washington Post said. “This music sketches a portrait of the District’s black community in which the seeing is in the ears,” The Post wrote. (E XPRESS)
Go-Go’s Godfather Chuck Brown, who founded a music style synonymous with D.C., dies at 75 MWi^_d]jed Chuck Brown, the gravelly voiced bandleader who capitalized on funk’s percussive pulse to create go-go, the genre of music that has soundtracked life in black Washington for more than three decades, died Wednesday at the Johns Hopkins University hospital in Baltimore. He was 75. Known as the “Godfather of Go-Go,” the performer, singer, guitarist and songwriter developed his commanding brand of funk in the mid-1970s to compete with the dominance of disco. Brown remained the genre’s most charismatic ﬁgure. On stage, his spirited call-and-response routines became a hallmark of the music, reinforcing a sense of community that allowed the scene to thrive.
“No single type of music has been more identiﬁed with Washington than go-go, and no one has loomed so large within it as Chuck Brown,” former Washington Post pop music critic Richard Harrington wrote in 2001. Brown’s creation, however, failed to have the same impact outside of the Beltway. The birth of go-go doubled as the high-water mark of Brown’s national career. With his group the Soul Searchers, his signature hit “Bustin’ Loose” minted the go-go sound. Charles Louis Brown was born in Gaston, N.C., on Aug. 22, 1936. He never knew his father, Albert Louis Moody, a Marine. He took the surname of his mother, Lyla Louise Brown, a housekeeper who raised her several children in poverty. Brown was 8 when his fami-

ly relocated to Washington. As a teenager, Brown began to ﬂirt with petty crime and stumbled into a disastrous situation in the mid1950s when he shot a man in what he said was self-defense. A Virginia jury convicted Brown of aggravated assault, which was bumped up to murder when the victim died. He served eight years at the Lorton Correctional Complex. There, he swapped ﬁve cartons of cigarettes for a guitar. Upon his release, he returned to Washington and began to sing at backyard barbecues. In 1966, he formed his own group, the Soul Searchers, but eventually decided to try to create his own sound. Formal recognition came late in Brown’s life. He was nominated for his ﬁrst Grammy Award in 2011, when he was 74, for best rhythmand-blues performance by a duo or group with vocals for “Love,” a collaboration with singer Jill Scott and bassist Marcus Miller. In 2005, the National Endowment for the Arts presented Brown with a Lifetime Heritage Fellowship Award. In 2009, the District named a segment of Seventh Street NW “Chuck Brown Way,” near where he shined shoes as a child. He became the city’s unofﬁcial mascot, known for his extroverted warmth and willingness to ﬂash his gold-toothed smile for any fan hoping to join him for a snapshot. “I really appreciate that I can’t go nowhere without people hollering at me,” Brown said in 2010. “I love being close to people.” CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Chuck Brown gave the world go-go, but he gave D.C. his soul 7ffh[Y_Wj_ed A true D.C. legend passed Wednesday, and it feels like a part of all us has been taken with him. Chuck Brown, in short, was everything there was to love about music in D.C. He made his mark as the Godfather of Go-Go with “Bustin Loose” before I was born and was rocking right up until his
health no longer allowed. When news of his hospitalization hit a few weeks ago, I remembering telling a colleague that if they drove Chuck’s body through the streets of D.C., it would be a spectacle not unlike a presidential inauguration. Now I wish I’d never said it. 8o9b_djed It’s impossible to OWj[i really compare Chuck Brown to anyone, because he had no equal on D.C.’s music scene. Surely you could recall greats like
More Than Just The ‘Godfather’ Chuck Brown jams with fifth-grader Precious Moore at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Southeast as part of a Reading Is Fundamental event in 2010.
Duke Ellington and Marvin Gaye, but Chuck embodied the people in a way no artist ever has, or likely ever will again. Wall Street Journal music critic Jim Fusilli tweeted last month that
“Talking to [Chuck] in DC is like talking to Elvis in Memphis.” If you don’t know anything about Chuck, that should tell you everything. Those of us following closely knew things weren’t good when he
canceled his show at the newly renovated Howard Theatre — a place he tried to help keep alive as a go-go sanctuary in the ’80s. But forewarnings of the Godfather’s demise couldn’t soften the reality’s blow. D.C. has lost someone truly irreplaceable. Chuck was the coolest cat’s favorite cool cat. The guitar, the hat, the shades, everything about him was badass. What I’ll remember most is that as much as he could have, Chuck never made it about himself. He was a man of the people, a man of music and a man of the nation’s capital. In 2008 Brown teamed up with the locally grown duo Thievery Corporation for a song called “The Numbers Game.” The video is a love letter to the culture of D.C. Which is exactly what Chuck Brown’s life and career were to the rest of us.

The Maryland House of Delegates on Wednesday gave final approval to a budget package that raises income taxes for some and splits teacher pension costs with local governments. The House voted 77-60 on the measure raising taxes on single ﬁlers who make more than $100,000 and joint filers who make more than $150,000. That move ended a special session called by Gov. Martin O’Malley to avoid about $500 million in budget cuts. Delegates voted 86-51 for a separate bill to split teacher pension costs over four years and raise taxes on tobacco other than cigarettes. The special session was needed because the General Assembly failed to pass the package during its regular 90-day session that ended last month. Democrats said the package was needed to avoid painful cuts to education, health and public safety. (AP)

He ran a pro-style offense at Michigan State and has decent mobility, but there are questions about his arm strength. Leadership is not an issue, however. Cousins scripted and ran his entire pro day, while every other quarterback ran pro days scripted by coaches. (T WP)

A Burgundy And Golden Opportunity Cousins aims to make the most out of being Griffin’s understudy J^[H[Zia_di If Kirk Cousins could have written the script, he wouldn’t have heard Redskins coach Mike Shanahan’s voice on the other end of the phone on Day 3 of the NFL draft. Some other NFL team – one that wanted and needed to groom the winningest quarterback in Michigan State history into its starter — would have called.
But that didn’t happen. The Redskins, the team that went all in on Robert Grifﬁn III, called. Admittedly shocked, Cousins could do nothing about it. A week later, the shock subsided and reality set in. If the keys to the kingdom are tucked snugly in Grifﬁn’s pocket, all is certainly not lost for Cousins. Earlier this month, he reported for the Redskins’ three-day rookie minicamp and went about his business with goals for both the immediate and distant future. “The cream always rises to the top, so if I’m as good as I hope to be some
day, then I’m going to get that opportunity – whether here or somewhere else,” said Cousins, who many draft analysts thought would be picked in the second or third round and compete for a starting job as a rookie. “But this is a great opportunity to learn and develop and to grow.” In March, the Redskins sent the No. 6 and 39 overall picks in the 2012 draft, as well as ﬁrst-round picks in 2013 and 2014, to the St. Louis Rams to secure the No. 2 overall pick and Grifﬁn. But Shanahan and his assistants believed they needed more than just Griffin and 10th-year veteran Rex Grossman at that position. The day after the Redskins picked Grifﬁn, Shanahan told his young starter that the team likely would draft his long-term backup as well. Cousins fell to the fourth round, and the Redskins considered him too good to pass up. Shanahan killed all talk of a quarterback controversy after the minicamp, when he named Grifﬁn the team’s starter after just ﬁve practices. But the coach also explained why Cousins is a vital piece to the puzzle. “That guy’s one play away from being the starter,” Shanahan said. If the starter goes down with an injury, “I want to have the ability to still win. It’s hard. You can’t ﬁnd quarterbacks. ... If you can develop a couple guys and have three guys on your team, you feel like you have the chance to do something special in the long run.” A number of analysts disagreed with Shanahan’s decision to have two young quarterbacks with the ability to start. “It can divide a team, and it can cause problems,” ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. believes. “If RGIII is nicked up and Cousins lights it up, what are you going to do then?” But Shanahan dismisses such talk.
Bay got a third- and fifth-round pick from Jacksonville. Brunell was the Jaguars starter for nine years, reaching the 1996 AFC Championship.
CWjjIY^WkXwas traded to the Texans in 2007 in a trade with the Falcons, who gave up two second-round picks and swapped firstrounders with Houston. Schaub threw for more than 4,000 yards in both 2009 and 2010, reaching the Pro Bowl in ’09.
CWjj<bodd" who started two games in his four years, became the latest Packers backup to find greener pastures, signing a $19.5M deal with Seattle this spring.
Mehj^W:ekXb[#JWa[ One could hardly blame Kirk Cousins for being surprised when the Redskins drafted him in the fourth round after selecting Robert Griffin III — it had been 30 years since a team picked a QB in the first and then took another in as high as the fourth round of the same draft (not including 1989, when the Cowboys selected Troy Aikman No. 1 overall, then took Steve Walsh in the supplemental draft). In that span, only five other drafts featured a team taking a QB in the first and selecting another one in any subsequent round. YEAR TEAM

“I’ve been in this situation before with [John] Elway and [Gary] Kubiak,” Shanahan said of 1983, when Denver traded for Elway and drafted Kubiak. “I think it’s a lot of fun for guys coming in because they have the same goals, both were very successful collegiate quarterbacks, they got to study ﬁlm together, they’re rooming together, they’re talking football. Great process.” Cousins said his relationship with Grifﬁn has “gotten off to a great start.” And Grifﬁn — who roomed with Cousins during minicamp — said, “There are no issues there. … Having two rookie quarterbacks growing together is a good thing.” MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Mack was simply handling his responsibilities as a rookie, but he admitted that he didn’t have to endure too much hazing in his first year with the Wizards. “Carried a bag or two, that’s about it,” Mack said. “I had a great rookie year.” Plucked in the second round with the 34th pick, Mack was the last play-

Coach Randy Wittman made him John Wall’s primary backup and wasn’t afraid to lean on him on the nights Wall struggled. Mack was often a calming, steady alternative to the high-charged

He even ﬁnished with a highest player efﬁciency rating of the trio — 11.92 — and considers this season to be a triumph. “I think it’s been a great year for me, personally. I’ve been able

For Dunn, It’s Back to Normal
Ex-National finds his stroke after awful first year in Chicago Fhe8Wi[XWbb
Adam Dunn has driven last season behind him the best way he knows how. With his bat. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound White Sox slugger is determined to make sure that his head-shaking struggles during his ﬁrst season in Chicago don’t affect his approach in a new year. With a fresh coaching regime in place — including hitting coach Jeff Manto, who’s helped Dunn
improve his balance with drills such as having him hold a medicine ball between his feet in the batting cage — the former National is looking more like himself. Yeah, he’s still striking out at a high rate, but he’s also sending pitches over the fences. His 12th homer in Chicago’s 36th game on Monday night surpassed his total for all of last season. “He’s not in the mode of worrying about last year or trying to outdo last year or anything like that,” manager Robin Ventura said. Ventura never had a season like Dunn did a year ago, although he did go through an 0-for-41 slump as a rookie. Looking ahead and not

back is essential for escaping those kind of skids. “It’s not always easy for a lot of people to do, but he’s been great at just making it simple for himself,” Ventura said. Dunn called last season, when he batted just .159 with 177 strikeouts and 42 RBI, one of the most
difﬁcult experiences of his life. At every turn, everyone wanted to know what his problem was. And he was especially bummed that he was letting his teammates down. Here was a guy who was a respected power hitter for a long time in the National League and had been rewarded with a fouryear, $56 million contract to give Chicago the left-handed punch and run producer it needed. Instead, he missed by six plate appearances having the lowest batting average in modern major league history. Everything seems different now. “I feel good, it’s kind of normal,” Dunn said. “Last year wasn’t normal.” RICK GANO (AP)

;n^_X_ji It’s Artomatic time again! This year, the D.C. area’s biggest unjuried arts extravaganza runs for five weeks and fills a gigantic former Department of Defense building in Crystal City, Va.. With 10 floors of work by local artists, it’s all a bit overwhelming. But that’s part of Artomatic’s charm. “After our last event” — an eightstory affair above the Navy Yard Metro station in 2009 that drew a crowd of 70,000 — “we said we weren’t going to do anything bigger,” says Barry Schmetter, Artomatic’s event director. “Yet, here we are, with an even larger space.” “I tell people Artomatic is the best free date in Washington,” Schmetter says. Better make that a few dates, unless your sweetheart has an incredible attention span and some really comfortable shoes. Calling this Artomatic “bigger” than the last doesn’t really do it justice. The new venue has 380,000 square feet of space, and it’s packed with work by 1,300 visual artists exhibiting sculptures, photos, drawings, paintings, mobiles, metalwork, jewelry, comics, collages and more. There are also plenty of live-performance spaces for the 750 folks leading workshops or putting on dance, poetry, burlesque, wine tastings, and lectures — including even a “Burning Man for Beginners” talk. Then there’s still room for the food and drink vendors and an artists’ marketplace selling original works. Artomatic debuted in 1999 with what seems like a modest showcase today: 350 artists displayed their work in the U Street neigh-
borhood’s Manhattan Laundry building. Since then, the event’s been held intermittently; this year marks the eighth Artomatic. The entry policy for artists is simple: Anyone can participate, as long as they pay a small fee, attend required orientation sessions and volunteer. Since this year’s location is so large, there was room for everyone who applied to participate; nobody got turned away. Of course, “any time you do something like that, you’re going to have people who are still learning their craft,” Schmetter says diplomatically. Translation:
There’s good art, and then there’s … other art. This egalitarian approach has Ed garnered plenty of detractors in J ^[ 9el[h the past. Critics grumble that Artomatic is an amateur show; some compare it to a craft show, or a fine-arts Little League where everybody takes home a prize. Victoria Reis, co-founder and director of D.C.-based arts nonprofit and gallery Transformer, Maryland artist Eileen Williams uses isn’t bothered by the range of talknotted jute fiber and other mixed ent at Artomatic, but rather by media in her sculptures, like this one, what seems to be disproportiontitled “Women of Honor.” ate hoopla and resources devoted COURTESY EILEEN WILLIAMS

to the event. “There are nonprofit art organizations like Transformer and [the District of Columbia Arts Center] and others in the visual art community here in D.C. who are dedicated to having ongoing programs for artists and audiences, who are constantly on the hustle to get support,” Reis says. “It’s great for there to be some sort of opportunity for anyone and everyone who makes art to be able to get together and show their work, but I find it to be a really overwhelming visual experience.” Cynthia Connolly, the visual arts curator for Arlington arts and community space Artisphere, believes Artomatic might indirectly benefit other arts organizations such as Transformer.

tion as an arts city. “I think to have a rich arts scene, you just need to have as much art as possible in as many venues as possible,” she says. “I love going to galleries and museums, but people don’t just appear there; they have to start somewhere.” Artomatic has indeed hosted early work by artists who have gone on to critical acclaim with shows in D.C. galleries and around the world, including street artist Kelly Towles, mixed-media artist Elizabeth Morrisette and photographer Frank Day. This year’s group likely holds more up-and-comers; we just have to sift through the Peeps dioramas and sunset photographs to find them. K ATIE ABERBACH (E XPRESS)

8kha[Cei[i ACTOR, ‘THE MUSIC MAN’ Most musicals have three writers: one for the score, one for the lyrics, one for the script. Occasionally one person will write music and lyrics, or lyrics and script, but seldom does anyone try to do all three. Meredith Willson’s 1957 classic “The Music Man” is one of those rare musicals where every word is penned by the same man. We spoke to Burke Moses — who stars as traveling salesman/con man Harold Hill in Arena Stage’s new production of the play — about Willson’s musical trickery and finding new tricks in old scores. FIONA ZUBLIN (EXPRESS)
Playing Harold Hill is a huge undertaking. What made you put your hat in the ring? I’ve been in this business for 30 years. When I was growing up there were two musical theater albums in my parents’ record collection, “West Side Story” and “The Music Man.” When a dream role comes, you grab it.
Why do “The Music Man” again at all? This show is done all the time, but how often is it done well? We have time to really dig at it, and this script is so deep that it keeps offering new discoveries.
The score is tricky — like how “Goodnight, My Someone” and “76 Trombones” are really the same tune. Meredith Willson writes a score that’s so accessible you don’t realize it’s clever. The story itself is original, but the way it’s told musically, the way he uses counterpoint, is so brilliant and dramatic.
And the a capella opening number’s rhythms... Meredith Willson: world’s first rap artist. Arena Stage, 1101 6th St. SW; through July 22, $64-$109; 202-488-3300, Arenastage.org. (Waterfront/SEU)

I’m not an activist. I’m an advocate for animal welfare. I don’t get political. What inspired your advocacy?
It was two animals: my mother and my father. My love of animals started in the womb. It’s always been my fascination. How do you react when you hear about cruelty to animals?
The human animal is not the most humane animal in the world. There are people who get a kick out of being cruel, not only to animals but to kids and to each other. I just don’t understand. It’s mind-boggling how they can live with themselves.

You don’t feel the age. It sneaks up on you and all of a sudden the calendar tells you [you’re 90]. But I don’t feel any different now than when I was 50. I’m blessed with good health. It’s awfully easy to enjoy old age if you’re not feeling rotten. An indiscreet question: There’s supposedly a nude photo of you from years ago circulating on the Internet. Is it real?
I don’t require a lot of sleep. I’m never ever in bed before midnight and I’m up at 6 every morning. If I get four, four and a half good solid hours, I’m good. When did you become an animal activist?
I’m afraid I have a rather bawdy sense of humor. But I don’t like dirty jokes. I enjoy double meanings.

Axis Dance Company turns difference into strength for dancers with disabilities IjW][ Every dance company likes to think the work it’s doing is unusual. But Oakland, Calif.-based Axis Dance Company explores styles of movement that are truly innovative. “You have to see this work to understand it,” says Judith Smith, the ensemble’s artistic director. “Most people don’t know what to expect, and they leave with their minds blown.” That’s because the company is composed of dancers with and without disabilities who share the stage. Half use wheelchairs and half have the use of all four limbs. Smith’s choreography does not treat these differences as restric-
tions; instead it emphasizes the unexpected ranges of motion and interactions that the dancers’ bodies allow. “The potential we have for creating more ensemble movement is radically expanded because of how differently people in wheelchairs move,” explains Smith. The dancers using chairs don’t just roll back and forth — they do wheelies, tip to either side and support nondisabled movers in various positions. It’s sculptural, athletic movement with lots of lifts. Axis was established in 1987 by a group of adults with disabilities who were eager to find a physical outlet and challenge popular perceptions about movement and disability. After taking the reins as artistic director 10 years later, Smith (who is herself a disabled dancer) began inviting prominent choreographers to set work on the company — resulting in pieces created by

The Baltimore Rock Opera Society runs on Natty Boh and heart IjW][ Legend has it that, when he was composing “The Ring Cycle,” Wagner meant for it to be performed in a custom-built opera house that would burn to the ground at the final curtain. The Baltimore Rock Opera Society (or B.R.O.S.) can get behind that idea. “Wagner is such an inspiration,” says Jen Tydings, artistic director and author of “Valhella: The Ragnarøkkoperetta,” which runs through May 20 at Baltimore’s Autograph Playhouse.
“There were a couple points during the process where I was like, ‘Maybe we SHOULD just burn the place down.’” B.R.O.S. was founded in 2007 by a group of friends with a thing for vikings, heavy metal and rock operas, where all of a play’s dialogue is set to rock music. “Valhella,” the group’s third feature-length production, follows the journey of three sons of the Norse god Odin as they are tempted by the offspring of another god, Loki. It employs puppets, animation and lots of heavy guitars. It also draws heavily on traditional German opera (which in turn drew heavily on Norse mythology) for inspiration. Tydings began writing the play

laughs. “That’s just how it went.” But the B.R.O.S. avoid the traditional mead in favor of Baltimore brew Natty Boh. “We always drink Natty Boh,”
says Tydings. “That’s our beer. They’ve been extremely generous — they donated 900 beers. I’m not sure if they’re trying to kill us off so that they don’t have to do it again or what, but they were awesome and we went through it in record time, so we’re out buying beer again.” But when it comes to set-building, rehearsing and performing, the B.R.O.S. get down to business. “We party a lot. But we’re professionals. If there’s something that needs to get done, we’re gonna do it. And if we can do it while drinking beer, we’ll do that. “Art always comes first,” she says. “The partying is a close second.” FIONA ZUBLIN (E XPRESS) Autograph Playhouse, 9 West 25th St., Baltimore; Fri. & Sat., 8 p.m., Sun., 6 p.m., $12-$17; 202-355-8864, Baltimorerockopera.org.

A Lebanese village’s women unite to keep war at bay in ‘Where Do We Go Now?’
COURTESY SONY PICTURES CLASSICS
Lebanese director Nadine Labaki’s new film “Where Do We Go Now?” defies description. Part comedy, part drama, part musical, it doesn’t fit anywhere. Which is why it fits in everywhere. Just like the village it depicts. The film, opening Friday, centers on a mythic village in Lebanon, where Christians and Muslims coexist in relative peace. They’re cut off from the rest of Labaki Lebanon thanks to a dest royed bridge, so it’s only through a jerry-rigged television that news of sectarian violence elsewhere in the country reaches the small town. Having seen how quickly a small argument can turn into a holy war, the women of the village do everything in their power to prevent their husbands, brothers and sons from taking up arms — acts that include destroying the TV, hiring Ukranian strippers and baking hashish into pastries to get everyone to chill. Labaki wrote the film shortly
The women of the unnamed village in “Where Do We Go Now?” band together to keep their boys and men from a life of violence.

after discovering she was pregnant; she got the news the same day the 2008 conflict between the Lebanese government and Hezbollah broke out. “The conflict only lasted a few weeks, but during those two weeks I thought how absurd it can be — how can we be able to take up weapons when we had years of peace?” she says. “The fact that I was pregnant changed my perspective. You
think of this child, and what kind of society is this where everything is a fuse to start a war?” Motherhood’s inf luence on Labaki follows her into a role in the film: She stars as Amale, a widow with a young son. Amale primarily wants to keep the peace in the village so she can go back to running her café, but she also wants the society to change before her son
gets old enough to load a gun. “I think [women] have to become more and more aware of our responsibility,” she says. “We have to stop this fatalistic approach. We have to become more and more aware that it’s the way we educate, it’s the way we raise our children.” Labaki took care not to name the village and to isolate it as much as she could from the real Lebanon so that the story felt more universal. “This is not a story about Christians and Muslims in Lebanon,” says Labaki. “This is a conflict between human beings.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

To War and Back
A film four years in the making, “Where Soldiers Come From” is a documentary about war. But it’s not about guns or bombs or generals or flags or policy; instead, it follows three teenagers from northern Michigan who join the National Guard and head to Afghanistan, where they sweep for roadside bombs. Then they come home and have seen more horror at age 23 than most people experience in their entire lives. Even though they’re physically safe, they must deal with the damage that marks more and more veterans: post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries. The film screens at the Corcoran Thursday night, followed by a Q&A with director Heather Courtney and Dominic Fredianelli, one of the film’s subjects. Corcoran Gallery of Art, 500 17th St. NW; Thu., 6 p.m., free “Where Soldiers Come From” follows Dominic Fredianelli to Afghanistan.

In “THE DICTATOR,” which opened Wednesday, Sacha Baron Cohen plays Aladeen, a despot known for his ruthless assassinations, his devotion to opulence and his gigantic facial hair — which will surely rank among these, the best beards in cinematic history. K.P.K.
'Rubeus Hagrid In all the Harry Potter movies, Robbie Coltrane plays Hagrid, the half-giant with the heart of gold and the beard that ate Hogwarts.
(Ming the Merciless In the 1980 stinker “Flash Gordon,” Max von Sydow plays the comic-book villain whose two-pronged beard signifies his evil intentions. “Never trust a man with a two-pronged beard,” that’s our motto.
)Davy Jones Bill Nighy vanished under a mountain of octopuslike tentacles in 2007’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” “Never trust a man with an octopus beard” is our other motto.
*Gandalf Appearing in two varieties (gray and white), Ian McKellen’s beard conveyed strength and wisdom and awesomeness through all the “Lord of the Rings” films.
+Alan It’s probably a good idea Zach Galifianakis sports a beard in all his movies — including “The Hangover” flicks — because we’re pretty sure he looks like he’s 12 behind all that hair.

ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE JOSIAH HENSON SITE Don Housley, President of the Mid-Potomac Chapter of the Archeological Society of Maryland.
Josiah Henson, whose autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, was enslaved on Isaac Riley’s 270 acre farmstead in the ﬁrst part of the 19th century in what is now North Bethesda. The Josiah Henson Special Park is the only site in the United States with a standing structure where people interested in Henson can visit and recognize an association with his life as a slave. Mr. Housley’s presentation explains how archaeological and historical investigations are working together to enrich the interpretation of this famous site.

9E9E$I7B7 Can’t decide if you want a dessert that’s hot, cold, soft or crunchy? Don’t bother. The all-encompassing Co Co. Grown Up ($14) at Co Co. Sala has a little something for every palate: There’s a sampling of smooth peanut butter gelato topped with a piece of crispy peanut brittle, a mini chocolate cupcake with mousselike icing, warm bananas Foster and a malted shooter with a touch of rum, served with what we thought was a brown straw. Turns out it was a thin sliver of (what else?) chocolate. “Everything we make at Co Co. is from scratch, including our garnishes,” Sidhu says. “It’s where we have a lot of fun.” 929 F St. NW; 202-347-4265; Cocosala.com. (Metro Center)
9;DJH7B8OC?9>;BH?9>7H: Michel Richard takes everything you love about fruit — its just-off-the-vine freshness, its tangy finish — and imparts it to his new lemon tart ($10) at Central. “It’s refreshing, it’s nice and it’s an American classic,” says Richard. “And at the same time, there isn’t a pastry chef in France who doesn’t serve one.” Though it’s unlikely they assemble it the way Richard does: He stores the prebaked, buttery cookie crust at room temperature to keep it as crisp as possible. When it’s time to serve, the chilled curd and meringue are eased on top. Vanilla ice cream and mango and raspberry syrup, served on the side, make this a masterpiece best enjoyed on a hot summer day. 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202-626-0015; Centralmichelrichard.com. (Federal Triangle)
Vermilion’s executive pastry chef, Tiffany MacIsaac, builds her four-layer showstopper ($10) on a thin base of chocolate cake. That’s topped with a hazelnut mousse containing gianduja, a European, Nutella-like chocolate. Next, a section of chocolate ganache and a silky layer of caramel mousse are added. It’s all coated with a chocolate glaze and served with caramel ice cream sprinkled with salt, crushed hazelnuts, crumbled chocolate cookies and shaved cocoa curls. Though the number of elements seems overwhelming, MacIsaac swears this dessert works because “the flavors are all rich, toasty and dark. And the caramel has salt in it, which balances any dessert with nuts.” 1120 King St., Alexandria; 703-684-9669; Vermilionrestaurant.com. (King St.)

F^obbe#MhWff[Z 9^[[i[YWa[ 8BK;:K9AJ7L;HD When you’ve trained under a former White House pastry chef, the expectations are set pretty high. And yet the chef in question — Blue Duck Tavern’s Peter Brett — still impresses with his newest dessert, a phyllo dough-wrapped cheesecake served atop white wine- and vanilla-poached kumquats ($9). The cake is slow-baked with a hint of fresh-squeezed lemon juice to accentuate the tartness of the cream cheese and fruit, and then cooked in two layers of phyllo. It’s served heated, which is unusual for such a dessert. “I don’t think I’ve seen warm cheesecake anywhere before,” says Brett. “We’re an American restaurant, so I try to do classic dishes with a twist.” 1201 24th St. NW; 202-419-6755; Blueducktavern.com.

Cure for a Bias?
Mark Bergami, a native of New Haven, Conn.’s pizza culture, prepares a white clam pie at his new Haven Pizzeria Napoletana.
>[Wl[dWj>Wl[d A Bethesda pizzeria takes inspiration from other standout spots
Like a lot of customers who have marveled over their meals at Haven Pizzeria Napoletana in Bethesda, this admirer was curious to know the owners’ source of inspiration. Turns out there were many muses. Mark Bergami says he and his business partner, Tiger Mullen, kneaded bits and pieces of favorite pizza parlors (and even moreformal restaurants) into their creation. That explains Haven’s two massive, coal-stoked ovens in the back of the dining room; a retro wine bar off to the side, paved with reclaimed oak from the Maker’s Mark distillery in Loretto, Ky.; and gelato churned at the restau-
rant, from scratch, every day. Bergami brings sterling credentials to the venue, which opened in February in a former rug store. The restaurateur is a native of New Haven, Conn., which enjoys a rich pizza culture. Before relocating here three years ago, Bergami helped expand the legendary Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana there. Long story short: Order a white clam pizza at Haven. The pie emerges from the oven crisp of crust, thoroughly cooked through, bold with garlic and scattered with top neck clams that squirt hot juice when you bite into them. Bergami says the seafood, from New Jersey and North Carolina, is shucked “daily and continually.” Almost as good is the basic tomato pie flavored with crushed imported plum tomatoes, pecori-
no cheese and olive oil supported by a nicely grainy, pleasantly smoky crust. The appetizers are mostly salads. Red peppers roasted with mozzarella and fresh basil are still sizzling when the first course lands on our wood table. The simplicity is intentional, Bergami says. Haven doesn’t want you to fill up ahead of the signatures. “Save room for the gelato,” our sunny server advises at the start of the meal. Honestly, all I wanted after devouring that white clam pizza was another white clam pizza, but we did as we were told and got a couple scoops of Italian “ice cream.” It took all my willpower not to make the dense pistachio gelato disappear.

<[[b_d]9hWXXo0It’s nearly officially summer and you’re starting to crave a good old-fashioned crab boil, right? Art and Soul has your fix every Wednesday from May 30 through the end of summer. Chef Wes Morton serves Louisiana-style jumbo crabs (starting at $21 for three) with sides such as corn on the cob, potatoes and sausage ($3). Beer specials begin at 4 p.m.; the crab boil begins at 5:30 p.m. Art and Soul, 415 New Jersey Ave. NW; 202-393-7777, Artandsouldc.com. (Union Station)
En route back home from a vacation, my husband and I recently spent a night in a London hotel. When we arrived, we were starving, but it was rainy and late. Reluctantly, we decided to eat at the hotel’s restaurant. I always assume hotel eateries will be stereotypically bland settings with equally bland food — in other words, not authentic local experiences. Luckily, our dinner was pretty decent. Back in D.C., I realized I’m proved wrong on a regular basis by the 8oAWj_[ city’s many top-notch 7X[hXWY^ hotel restaurants. Witness the popularity of places such as Bourbon Steak, in the Four Seasons, and Firefly, in Dupont Circle’s Madera Hotel. A recent meal at Cure Bar & Bistro in the Grand Hyatt Washington (1000 H St. NW) made me question my beliefs yet again. Maybe it shouldn’t have been a surprise, considering that Hyatt had just announced plans to serve healthier, locally sourced dishes at its restaurants. I was impressed with my meal’s balance of flavor, nutrition and originality. The asparagus salad ($12) featured a generous serving of the cooked stalks, a soft-boiled egg and delicate creme fraiche. My entree, pan-roasted salmon ($23), sat atop thinly sliced green apple, celery and cucumber (a variation on the regular salad of peas, fennel and frisee). The artful and appetizing plates allowed me to notch two servings of fresh produce AND to temporarily forget I was inside an establishment geared toward tourists. I think it’s an enviable accomplishment for a hotel eatery in any city. Read Katie’s column every other week here and at Expressnightout.com.

Thumbs Down In April, two African American men sued ABC for rejecting them as potential suitors on the “The Bachelorette.” “I never even had a chance,” one claims, charging that the show gives more time and consideration to white applicants than to people of color. Indeed, “The Bachelorette” cast is pretty darn white. The new season, which began Monday, had one black suitor, who was quickly spurned by new bachelorette (and single mom) Emily. So the 8oCWhY lawsuit seems to make I_bl[h a legitimate point. But I have a question. Shouldn’t ALL MEN sue “The Bachelorette” for making us look REALLY STUPID? Let’s consider some of this year’s suitors. Jef. Jef can’t spell his own name! Also, he rides a skateboard without a helmet while hanging onto the back of a limo. David. A songwriter, David wrote a song about Emily. It goes like this: “Emily. EMILY. EM-I-LY. Uh oh. Emily.” Travis. He carries an ostrich egg that he will care for as if it were Emily and her daughter. Tony. He says: “What has two thumbs and is going to marry Emily? This guy!” Tony, I hate to break the news to you, but JUST ABOUT EVERY MAN ON EARTH HAS TWO THUMBS.

The broadcast networks reveal next season’s new shows and schedules
J^[(&''#(&'(JLi[Wied isn’t even over yet, but advertisers and TV executives are already looking toward the future. In an annual ritual, all the broadcast networks presented their fall schedules to advertisers this week and asked them to commit to millions of dollars in commercial time. We’ve sorted through the myriad of announcements from the big four — NBC, Fox, ABC and CBS — to give you a peek at what the networks think you’ll be watching next fall. ( THE WASHINGTON P OST/AP/E X PRES S)
Hoping to lure viewers with laughs, NBC is calling on old Friend MATTHEW PERRY to lend a hand. “Go On,” (Tue., 9 p.m.) features Perry as a sarcastic sportscaster who loses his wife in a car accident. “The New Normal” (Tue., 9:30 p.m.), from “Glee’s” Ryan Murphy, is about a gay couple that invites a surrogate mother into their home as they try to have a baby. Dramas include the J.J. Abrams-produced action series “Revolution” (Mon., 10 p.m.) and “Chicago Fire” (Wed., 10 p.m.), from “Law & Order’s” Dick Wolf.
“Whitney” moves to Fridays (8 p.m.), where it will lead into “Community.” Thursday night, meanwhile, shifts slightly, with the final season of “30 Rock” moving to 8 p.m., followed by “Up All Night.” And “The Voice” (Mon. & Tue., 8 p.m.) launches a fall season — the series’ first.
NBC axed “Harry’s Law,” ‘’Awake,” ‘’Are You There, Chelsea?” and “Bent.” “Harry’s Law” was one of NBC’s more popular shows, but its audience was too old to draw advertisers.
In “The Mindy Project,” (Tue., 9:30 p.m.), “The Office’s” MINDY KALING plays an OB/GYN pursuing her dream of becoming the perfect woman, finding the perfect man and getting her perfect rom-com ending. “Ben and Kate” (Tue., 8:30 p.m.) stars Nat Faxon, the Oscar-winning co-screenwriter of “The Descendants,” as a guy who becomes the manny for his uptight sister’s kid. Fox’s only new fall drama is “The Mob Doctor” (Mon., 9 p.m.), about a doctor who has to pay off her family’s debt to the mob.
Britney Spears and Demi Lovato have joined Simon Cowell’s singing competition, “The X Factor,” (Wed. & Thu., 8 p.m.) where they will mentor aspiring pop stars. The struggling “Glee” moves to Thursday (9 p.m.), while Kiefer Sutherland’s “Touch” shifts to Friday (8 p.m.).
Fox’s long-running drama “House” is ending this spring, and the network is pulling the plug on its high-profile but low-rated dramas “Terra Nova” and “Alcatraz.”
The country-music drama “Nashville” begins on Wednesday (10 p.m.) in the fall, starring CONNIE BRITTON as a veteran singer whose career is on the wane. ABC is putting the new action piece “Last Resort” on Thursdays (8 p.m.). It features Andre Braugher as the captain of a doomed military submarine. The only new comedy to begin in September will be “The Neighbors” (Wed., 9:30 p.m.), which follows “Modern Family.” It’s about a family that moves into a New Jersey gated community where the neighbors are aliens.
Two comedies that were introduced in the time slot following “Modern Family” on Wednesday nights — “Happy Endings” and “Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23” — will air on Tuesdays in the fall. ABC is also casting for an all-star edition of “Dancing With the Stars.”
“Desperate Housewives” is no more. “Missing,” “The River,” “GCB” and “Pan Am” all miss out on the chance at a second season, and “Cougar Town” moves to TBS.
Landing the coveted post-“NCIS” slot is new drama “Vegas,” (Wed., 10 p.m.), starring Dennis Quaid as law enforcement and Michael Chiklis as a mobster in 1960s Vegas. “Elementary” (Thu., 10 p.m.) adds to CBS’ stockpile of crime dramas, with JONNY LEE MILLER playing a modern Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as his assistant Watson. New comedy “Partners” (Mon., 8:30 p.m.) is based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, whose bromance is threatened when one of them gets engaged.
“Two and a Half Men,” where Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen, is moving from Monday to Thursday (8:30 p.m.). It will be paired with “The Big Bang Theory” in a new comedy block. Simon Baker’s “The Mentalist” shifts from Thursday to Sunday (10 p.m.).
As the top-rated network, CBS opted to send cancellation notices to just three shows: the long-running “CSI: Miami,” Poppy Montgomery’s ‘’Unforgettable” and “Rob.”
In last place, NBC looks to comedy for a boost.
Fox retools “X Factor” and debuts new sitcoms.
New dramas join ABC’s established half-hours.
TV’s top-rated network didn’t tweak too much.

Who would have thought that one of the summer’s most bummer albums would come from Best Coast? When Bethany Cosentino’s beach-pop band emerged with 2010’s “Crazy for You,” the only thing keeping her from being the year’s most bright-eyed newcomer was that her eyes were too bloodshot from smoking so much weed. Cosentino’s formula was supremely simple — fuzzy guitars, tales of slacker romance — and the results were sometimes frustratingly naive but mostly endearing. Apparently, becoming an indie superstar turned fashion designer and Drew Barrymore pal isn’t all fun and sun. (Although those two words make eight appearances on the title track and are used in tandem many more times throughout the album’s 10 other songs.) Cosentino’s rhyming dictionary remains wholly unsophisticated, and the range of emotions isn’t much broader, but on “The Only Place,” her sadness is compelling.
“You gotta keep me away from what they say about me / Cause I want to be a better girl,” she sings on “Better Girl,” addressing the backlash that turned her from Internet favorite to punch line.
J^[Edbo FbWY[ Best Coast
Cosentino no longer hides behind distortion and reverb, but her songs happily remain straightforward in both structure and style — sparkling three-minute verse /chorus romps with some well-placed Phil Spector ﬂourishes. But the downtrodden lyrics contradict Cosentino’s newly conﬁdent voice, which has been upgraded from pothead whine to Valley girl Patsy Cline. Cosentino used to sound like all she needed was another joint to keep the buzz going, but when she sings, “I’m still here, I’m still alone /I’m still awake, I’m still afraid” on album closer “Up All Night,” it seems like what she needs most now is a hug.

7IjWj[bo"IkcfjkekiÉ8beecÊ Beach House reaches its full potential on the duo’s fourth disc
8beec Beach House
The Baltimore duo Beach House hasn’t really budged in the past two years. Still in Charm City. Still writing rock songs that settle over our ears like a perfumed fog. The group’s superb new album, “Bloom,” sounds a lot like its gorgeous 2010 disc, “Teen Dream.” But somehow, it’s a more pleasing listen — like the epiphany that arrives when you rearrange the furniture in your apartment and it feels like you’ve invented a new home. With the notion of home and escape built into their band’s name, singer Victoria Legrand and instrumentalist Alex Scally seem poised to build songs for us to luxuriate in.
Beach House’s Alex Scally, left, and Victoria Legrand, right, shimmer on “Bloom.”
Across 10 tracks, “Bloom” manages to sound stately, sumptuous and alert. Scally strums his guitars in cathedrals of reverb, he presses colorful melodies from thriftstore keyboards, he lets his drum machines tick away like heirloom

pocket watches. It’s rare to hear a singer who can fold her voice into her surroundings so gracefully, but here Legrand is on “Lazuli,” repeating its lovelorn refrain 13 times: “Like no other, you can’t be replaced.”
Scally provides solid sonic footing with “Other People,” a song with a sparkling chorus. “Other people want to keep in touch,” Legrand sings. “Something happens and it’s not enough/Never thought that it would be so much.” It might be about angst and ennui in the socialmedia age. Or it might not. For other bands, those kinds of ambiguities signal wishy-washiness. But for Beach House, loose ends seem purposefully untied. They’re building songs in the space between reality and possibility. It’s a space we could already be living in, if we’d just move the couch over by the window. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )
iMovie Expert Aaron Sorkin is going from Facebook to Apple. Sony Pictures says the Oscar-winning writer will pen a screenplay based on the Steve Jobs biography. Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal says Sorkin will make the film about the late Apple founder “everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining and polarizing.” Sorkin won the adapted screenplay Academy Award for 2010’s “The Social Network.” He was nominated in the same category for 2011’s “Moneyball.” Actor Ashton Kutcher is set to play Jobs in a separate project.

É?ZebÊiÊ?Z[dj_joFheXb[c Yet another white guy with a guitar is poised to win ‘American Idol’ 9ecf[j_j_ed “American Idol” viewers .0&& could be in for a serious case of deja vu if Phillip Phillips wins on the talent contest’s 11th season ﬁnale next week. While the soulful strummer has certainly proved he can be a risktaking showman by transforming songs such as Usher’s “U Got It Bad” into searing acoustic covers, a victory for the 21-year-old would prove something that everyone has suspected for a while: “Idol” voters prefer humble Caucasian heartthrobs over, well, anyone else. Since he ﬁrst caught the judges’
Phillip Phillips is the front-runner heading into “American Idol’s” homestretch.
attention with growly renditions of Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson hits, Phillips has seamlessly moved up the ranks, never appearing as one of the show’s low-vote getters. That can’t be said of his two ﬁnal challengers — sassy 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez and booming 20-year-old Joshua Ledet. And it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Phillips bears a striking resemblance to the past four champions. While the musical styles of David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery and Phillips are varied, they’re all young Caucasian male guitar players, or, as they’ve become known by many “Idol” devotees, WGWGs — white guys with guitars. There hasn’t been a female or non-white winner since Jordin Sparks bested Blake Lewis in 2007. DERRIK J. L ANG (AP)

“Perhaps it’s a coincidence that we start hearing rumors on the latest installment of the Superman saga while ‘The Avengers’ is still hot on the minds of moviegoers around the world, or maybe the blue and red one was feeling underappreciated. Whatever the reason may be the effect on me is the same...the nerd fire has been stoked.“ — John Nolan at PUNCHDRUNKCRITICS.COM has heard a lot of varied
speculation about how DC Comics plans to approach the story line for “Man of Steel,” set for release next year.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are in need of updated information today, and yet it may not come to you unless you are first willing to jump through some hoops. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may want to make a dramatic change that is simply not possible just yet. Do your best to make it under less-than-ideal conditions. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You are on the way to formulating a plan that can benefit others as well as yourself for quite some time. Consider all options. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your objection to anotherâ€™s efforts is not likely to stem from the quality of the work itself, but from the apparent motives at play. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You and a rival may find yourselves in bit of a stalemate today as each waits for the other to make that one fatal mistake.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have been doing very little lately to relieve personal pressure and tension. Itâ€™s time to address a difficult situation head-on. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your work may need a little polish, and you may not know just where to start. A friend or co-worker has a few valuable suggestions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) What you hear by accident today is likely to be of great value to you now and in the immediate future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You know how to do what has been asked today, and you mustnâ€™t let a knee-jerk reaction to the way you were asked deter you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Focus on those who can do what you can today; teamwork can bring you closer together â€” and provide everyone with greater rewards than imagined.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Itâ€™s time for you to seek out kindred spirits. Youâ€™ve been trying to accomplish a major feat on your own for too long. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You may not be able to keep everything organized in your head throughout the day; trust another to help you â€” and keep written records!
