Grad ‘literally got the chills’ EDUCATION When Rashema Melson first walked across Georgetown University’s campus as a freshman in the fall of 2014, she told herself she was smart enough to be there and deserved to be there. But she didn’t always believe her own pep talks. Melson had arrived at Georgetown’s idyllic Northwest D.C. campus from just across town, where she lived in a single room with her mother and two brothers at the homeless shelter located in the former D.C. General Hospital. The shelter had been Melson’s residence while she attended Anacostia High School, where she earned straight A’s and graduated as valedictorian that spring. Her living conditions — the showers often had no hot water, she wore noise-canceling headphones so she could study — were a universe away from most of her new fellow scholars. “ ‘Is this really where I belong?’ ” Melson remembered thinking. On Saturday morning, the
ROBB HILL (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Walking Georgetown’s stage was the final step in an unlikely journey
Rashema Melson sits among her fellow graduates at commencement.
23-year-old answered that question with a triumphant yes as she strode across the stage at Georgetown’s graduation ceremony. Melson accepted her diploma, a degree in justice and peace studies, and became the first person in her family to graduate from college. “I literally got the chills as soon as they called my name,” Melson said after the ceremony. Melson’s graduation is all the more remarkable when you consider the odds against her.
“She’s always embraced where she’s from and the people she grew up with and she feels a responsibility to help them.” MARC HOWARD, a professor who taught Melson in two classes, on how he admires that Melson stayed connected to her pre-college life
According to census data, only 9 percent of the United States’ poorest young people — those whose family income puts them in the bottom quartile — earn a fouryear college degree by age 24. The path from her first day at Georgetown five years ago to diploma on Saturday was not the straight line she wished for as a freshman. During her sophomore year, Melson left Georgetown to marry her boyfriend and live with him on a military base in Tennessee. The marriage lasted a year. Melson said she tried to make it work, but she thought she was sacrificing too much. She reapplied to Georgetown and returned determined to earn her degree. Melson credits her success to her faith in God, her own resilience, and the backing of friends, teachers and supporters. She says she wants to work in public policy to help assist impoverished and underserved communities. She’s considering job offers from community service organizations. She plans to pursue a law degree in the future. “I want people to look at me and say, ‘She did it, I can do it,’ ” Melson said. JOE HEIM (THE WASHINGTON POST)

D.C. may turn to citizens to start issuing tickets
PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY
Three charged after teen found dead in Md. creek
Official says plan could help deal with traffic and parking problems
Car damages ‘ghost bike’ memorial BILL O’LEARY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
THE DISTRICT District officials are so desperate for more solutions to the city’s parking and traffic problems that they’re considering recruiting citizens to help enforce the rules of the road. A proposal before the D.C. Council would allow up to 80 regular citizens, 10 in each ward, to issue tickets to vehicles parked where they aren’t allowed — blocking crosswalks, in bike lanes, in front of bus stops. They would be the city’s eyes and ears in the neighborhoods, spotting parking violators, documenting the infractions with photos and issuing citations. Think of them as citizen enforcers, said Council member Charles Allen, D-Ward 6, the proposal’s chief sponsor. It’s a concept that’s been tried in other U.S. cities, where officials say it helps beef up enforcement while allowing law enforcement to focus on more serious crime. But critics say these “citizen cops” are a recipe for disaster. The plan, critics say, could put citizens at risk of unnecessary confrontations, increase favoritism and discrimination in traffic crackdowns and hurt the impartiality generally associated
Council member Charles Allen wants D.C. citizens to be able to issue tickets.
with traffic enforcement. Allen hopes the Citizen Safety Enforcement program, though unconventional, could be a resource to reduce troubling road behaviors that put people’s lives at risk. The intent of the pilot program, he said, is to improve road safety — along with two dozen other initiatives included in a comprehensive transportation bill he introduced this month. The city can’t ignore that traffic fatalities are on the rise, said Allen, citing 36 victims last year and 12 so far this year. About half of the victims are pedestrians or bicyclists. “We should be acting with a
greater sense of urgency and we should be willing to try new things because what we have been doing hasn’t stopped people from dying,” Allen said. Several other cities have or are experimenting with the citizen enforcement concept, recruiting — and even paying — their citizens to rat out traffic violators. New York last year created a reward program for residents to report idling vehicles, providing a platform where they can file complaints along with photos and video evidence of offenders. Tipsters can receive up to 25% of the fines generated by their report. LUZ LAZO (THE WASHINGTON POST)
A car crash left behind a trail of destruction in D.C. early Saturday, including damage to a memorial honoring a cyclist who died weeks earlier at the same location. At 4:08 a.m., a Chevrolet Tahoe struck a light pole and a parked car near the intersection of 12th and K streets NE and Florida Avenue, according to police spokeswoman Kristen Metzger. The driver of the Tahoe fled the scene, Metzger said. The memorial — a “ghost bike” painted white — was erected last month in honor of Dave Salovesh, a well-known D.C. cyclist and safety activist who was killed in the intersection by the driver of a stolen minivan on April 19, authorities said. The crash remains under investigation, Metzger said. (TWP)

Four people were charged with trespassing at the Venezuelan Embassy.
Embassy squatters charged in protest THE DISTRICT Four activists who were forcibly removed from the Venezuelan Embassy after living there for more than a month were released from jail Friday after appearing in federal court on a misdemeanor charge of interfering with State Department diplomatic protective functions. Prosecutors filed the charge, punishable by up to a year in prison, by criminal information, a charging document used when defendants waive their right to an indictment that typically means they intend to enter a plea deal. Margaret Flowers, 56; Adrienne Pine, 48; David Paul, 69; and Kevin Zeese, 63, were the last of about 50 left-wing demonstrators who, since April 10, had spent time living inside the troubled South American country’s embassy in Georgetown. Federal law enforcement
officers arrested the four activists Thursday morning, after prying open the embassy door at the request of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who is recognized by the United States and about 50 other nations as the country’s interim president. At the activists’ initial court appearance, U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey of the District released the defendants on personal recognizance, on condition they stay away from designated Venezuelan officials and representatives and 10 diplomatic properties, and obtain preapproval for foreign travel. The defendants didn’t enter a plea, but Harvey set a court date for June 12, which also is the deadline for them to decide whether to keep court-appointed counsel or seek other attorneys. MARISSA J.

A powerful Navajo project
KAIBETO, ARIZ. Miranda Haskie sits amid the glow of candles at her kitchen table while her husband, Jimmie Long Jr., fishes for the wick to light a kerosene lamp as the couple and their 13-year-old son prepare to spend a final night without electricity. In the morning, utility workers who recently installed four electric poles outside their doublewide house trailer will connect it to the power grid, meaning they will no longer be among the tens of thousands of people without power on the Navajo Nation, the country’s largest American Indian reservation. Haskie and Long are getting their electricity this month thanks to a project to connect 300 homes with the help of volunteer utility crews from across the U.S. The Navajo Tribal Utility Authority connects from 400 to 450 homes a year, chipping away at the 15,000 scattered, rural homes without power on the 27,000-square-mile reservation that lies in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. At that rate, it would take the tribal utility about 35 more years to get electricity to the 60,000 of the reservation’s 180,000 residents who don’t have it. The couple’s home at the end of rutted dirt roads outside the small town of Kaibeto was about a quarter-mile from the closest power line.

Jimmie Long Jr. places the glass on an oil lamp a few days before his home on the Navajo reservation in Arizona was connected to the power grid.
“It’s not that bad. Growing up, you get used to it, being raised like that,” Long said. The family’s weekday routine included showering, cooking and charging cellphones, battery packs and flashlights at Haskie’s mother’s house 2 miles away, down dirt roads that turn treacherous in stormy weather. Navajos without electricity also pack food or medication in coolers with ice or leave it outside in the wintertime. Children use dome lights in cars or kerosene lamps to do their homework at night.

intermittent power. No electricity typically means no running water and a lack of overall economic development. Creating the infrastructure to reach the far-flung homes on the reservation is extremely costly. Hooking up a single home can cost up to $40,000 on the reservation, where the annual per capita income is around $10,700 and half the workforce is unemployed, said Walter Haase, general manager of the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority. For the recent power hookup project called Light Up Navajo, the utility raised funds from an online campaign, collected donations from employees, businesses and communities, and used revenue from solar farms on the reservation to cover the utility’s $3 million cost. Money that isn’t raised will be borrowed and the repayment passed on to customers via their rates, Haase said. The project started in March and ends this month. The volunteer crews spent days on the reservation, learning about Navajo culture, the language and the landscape before setting out to job sites often hours away from their hotel rooms. Ken Wagner was part of a fourman crew from Piqua, Ohio, that weathered rain, dust storms and sandy terrain as they traveled through the western part of the reservation in Arizona earlier this month. “It’s kind of crazy to think about the different things you take for granted on a daily basis,” he said.

GOP Rep. Amash: Trump obstructed WASHINGTON A Republican congressman from Michigan on Saturday became the first member of President Trump’s party on Capitol Hill to accuse him of engaging in “impeachable conduct” stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller’s lengthy investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. But Rep. Justin Amash stopped short of calling on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings, which many Democrats have been agitating for. Often a lone GOP voice in Congress, Amash sent a series of tweets Saturday faulting both Trump and Attorney General William Barr over Mueller’s report. Mueller submitted his report to Barr in late March. Barr then released a summary of Mueller’s “principal conclusions” and released a redacted version of the report in April. Mueller left open the question of whether Trump acted in ways that were meant to obstruct the investigation. Barr later said there was insufficient evidence to bring obstruction charges. Amash said that after carefully reading the redacted version of Mueller’s report, he concluded

that “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.” “Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” the congressman tweeted. He said the report “identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.” The Justice Department, which Barr leads, operates under guidelines that discourage the indictment of a sitting president.

Trump suggests Ala. abortion law goes too far POLITICS President Trump is carefully distancing himself from a new Alabama law that bans abortion in almost all circumstances, even in cases of rape and incest, stressing his “strongly pro-life” credentials while aligning himself with other Republicans who also contend the statute goes too far. In a late-night Twitter thread Saturday, Trump avoided any direct references to the law in Alabama or in other Republicanled states that have rushed to enact strict abortion rules. But he underscored that his position — Trump has said he opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk — is the same as that of former President Ronald Reagan. He urged Republicans to instead stay united on the issue, which the GOP has used to go on the offensive against Democrats. Trump is far from the only Republican, although certainly the most powerful one, to signal that the new Alabama law — which also allows a penalty of up to 99 years in prison for doctors who perform the procedure — goes too far. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said last week that the statute goes further than he supports with its lack of exemptions for rape and incest, and very few Republicans on Capitol Hill have been eager to weigh in to support the law.

Five-week election ends; results expected Thurs. Voting in India’s mammoth national election ended Sunday with the seventh and final phase of a grueling five-week poll.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN Gay couples in Taiwan plan a mass wedding registration after lawmakers on Friday voted to legalize same-sex marriage, a first in Asia and a boost for LGBT rights activists who had championed the cause for two decades. Legislators, under pressure from both LGBT groups and church organizations that opposed the move, approved most of a government-sponsored bill that recognizes same-sex marriages and gives couples many of the tax, insurance and child custody benefits available to heterosexual married couples. That makes Ta iwa n the first place i n Asia with a

BETHLEHEM, PA. | Crowds gathered Sunday to watch as a demolition crew imploded Martin Tower, the former headquarters of Bethlehem Steel in Bethlehem, Pa. The 21-story building had stood vacant for years after Bethlehem Steel, which was once America’s second-largest steelmaker, closed in 2003. It took 16 seconds for the building, made of 16,000 tons of steel, to implode. A thick plume of dust lingered for several minutes afterward.

Americans head south
More U.S. citizens are moving to Mexico, and even those there illegally are welcomed
Victor Guzmán, a 67-year-old entrepreneur from Charlotte, N.C., plays pickleball in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where he moved five years ago.
LUIS ANTONIO ROJAS PHOTOS (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
MEXICO Spanish friars brought the faith to San Miguel de Allende, a colonial city in Mexico’s central highlands. The silver barons of the 18th century built its mansions. Now comes the pickleball invasion. It started with just a few American retirees. Now there are so many clubs in Mexico dedicated to the U.S. sport that a tournament was held there last year. “It was a madhouse,” said Victor Guzmán, a 67-year-old entrepreneur from Charlotte, N.C., who helped pull the event together. President Trump regularly assails the flow of migrants crossing the Mexican border into the United States. Less noticed has been the surge of people heading in the opposite direction. Mexico’s statistics institute estimated this month that the U.S.born population in this country has reached 799,000 — a roughly fourfold increase since 1990. And the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City estimates the real number is higher — at 1.5 million or more. They’re a mixed group. They’re digital natives who can work just as easily from Puerto Vallarta as Palo Alto. They’re U.S.-born kids — nearly 600,000 of them — who’ve returned with their Mexican-born parents. And they’re retirees like Guzmán. If the thousands of Mexicans moving home are taken into account, the flow of migrants from the U.S. to Mexico is probably larger than the flow of Mexicans to the U.S. The American immigrants are pouring money into local economies, renovating historic homes and changing the dynamics of Mexican classrooms. “It’s beginning to become a very important cultural phenomenon,” said Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s foreign minister. “Like the Mexican community in the

United States.” And yet, he said, Mexican authorities know little about the size or needs of their largest immigrant group. Ebrard has been tasked by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador with changing that. While the U.S. is deeply divided over immigration, American immigrants in Mexico have largely been welcomed. In San Miguel — where about 10 percent of the city’s 100,000 residents
Mexicans return home President Trump isn’t wrong about the rising numbers of migrants reaching the southern U.S. border. But they’re more likely to be Central American than Mexican. Since 2015, census data shows, more Mexicans have returned home each year than moved to the U.S. Data from 2017, the most recent year for which numbers are available, showed a net decrease of 300,000 Mexican immigrants in the U.S. (TWP)

are U.S. citizens — Mayor Luis Alberto Villarreal delivers his annual State of the Municipality address in English and Spanish. Thanksgiving is celebrated a few weeks after Mexico’s Day of the Dead. Restaurants have adopted “American timing” — serving dinner at the ungodly hour of 6 p.m. — the mayor reports. “Despite the fact that Donald Trump insults my country every day, here we receive the entire international community, beginning with Americans, with open arms and hearts,” Villarreal said. Mexican authorities say that many of the Americans are probably undocumented — typically, they’ve overstayed their sixmonth visas. But the government has shown little concern. “We have never pressured them to have their documents in order,” Ebrard said. Typically, violators pay a small fine. Villarreal shrugged. “We like people who come to work and help the economy of the city — like Mexicans do in the United States.” Given the dollar’s strength against the Mexican peso, even an American getting by on Social Security and a modest pension can rent a high-ceilinged apartment, hire a maid and eat out most nights. “You can live here on $2,000 or $3,000 a month — and live well,” Guzmán said. Unlike America, Mexico hasn’t traditionally had many immigrants. Less than 1 percent of the population is foreign-born. After a decades-long wave of Mexican migration transformed the U.S., Silvia Giorguli, a demographer and president of the College of Mexico, said it is now Mexico that faces a dilemma: “How do you integrate Americans?” MARY BETH SHERIDAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Bomb hits bus of tourists near Giza Pyramids CAIRO A roadside bomb hit a tourist bus on Sunday near the Giza Pyramids, wounding at least 17 people, including tourists, Egyptian officials said. The officials said the bus was traveling on a road close to the Grand Egyptian Museum, which is located adjacent to the Giza Pyramids but is not yet open to tourists as it’s still under construction. The bus was carrying at least 25 people mostly from South Africa, officials added. The attack comes as Egypt’s vital tourism industry is showing signs of recovery after troubles because of the political turmoil and violence that followed a 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak. The officials said security forces cordoned off the site of the explosion and the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital. The explosion damaged a windshield of another car, they said. Footage circulated online shows shattered windows of the bus. Atif Moftah, general supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum, said the explosion did not cause any damage to the museum, in a statement issued by the antiquities ministry. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack — the second to target foreign tourists near the famed pyramids in less than six months. In December, three Vietnamese tourists and a local tour guide were killed when their bus was hit by a bomb. SAMY MAGDY (AP)

With Sunday’s win, Brooks Koepka is back to No. 1 in the world rankings.
putt on No. 11 to keep it from being worse. The fickle wind died as he hit 7-iron to the par-3 14th and his ball sailed over the green, leading to a fourth straight bogey. The crowd sensed a collapse, and began chanting, “DJ! DJ! DJ!” as Koepka was playing the hole. Ahead of him, Johnson made birdie on the 15th — the toughest hole at Bethpage Black all week — and the lead was down to one. That’s as close as Johnson got. With the win, Koepka returned to No. 1 in the world. He has won four of the last eight majors and is the first player to hold back-toback titles in two majors at the same time, having won a second straight U.S. Open last summer.
the wrong way — through a maze of animals and people, after the Preakness Stakes concluded — it wasn’t one too many black-eyed Susans. Fits right in, doesn’t it? On a beautiful Saturday evening, War of Will won the Preakness. That information will be available in record books in perpetuity. Even 22 minutes afterward — the span of time in which stewards at Churchill Downs reviewed a violation on Maximum Security, who crossed the Kentucky Derby finish line first, and gave the victory to Country House — Saturday’s result stood. Chalk one up for normalcy. Yet a question that better encapsulated the day — better than, “Is this redemption for War of Will, blocked by Maximum Security’s wayward trip in the Derby?” — was: Can a horse without a rider win a
over the closing stretch as Dustin Johnson faded with two straight bogeys. Koepka closed with a 4-over 74 for a two-shot victory and joined Tiger Woods as the only back-to-back winners of the PGA Championship since it went to stroke play in 1958. But Koepka’s 74 was the highest final round by a PGA champion in 15 years. “I’m just glad I don’t have to play any more holes,” Koepka said. “That was a stressful round

A pipe burst, so not all the toilets worked. The grandstands past which the horses parade en route from the barn were so decrepit, they were closed. The city of Baltimore is suing the owners of Pimlico Race Course, which is probably the second-most well known suit in the world of horse racing because the owner of the horse that was disqualified as the winner of the Kentucky Derby is fighting — in federal court — to get that decision overturned. On Friday afternoon, a horse collapsed and died after the finish of a race at Pimlico. That enough to capture the state of a sport and the venue that hosts one of its crown jewels? Well, if you thought you saw a riderless horse sprinting
while they waited in line for the bathrooms. The Stronach Group, which owns both Pimlico and Santa Anita, is tussling with both the city and the state to move the Preakness from the only home it has ever known. I covered baseball at RFK Stadium. I know a venue that’s no longer suitable for hosting major events, and Pimlico is no longer suitable for hosting major events. So there’s the backdrop to this year’s Preakness: a local crisis involving this city’s marquee sporting event that folds into the national crisis that encompasses the entire sport. Oh, and both Maximum Security and Country House — the two celebrities that thrust the sport to the national discourse — skipped the Preakness. Horse racing seems a bit chaotic at the moment. Sometimes that’s tragic. On Saturday, it seemed more typical. This old track has its history. But in what might be one of the last Preaknesses staged here, 2019 will be the year a horse ran the race without a rider, and that fit in with the current state of the sport.
A riderless sport: Preakness chaos a fitting metaphor
race? The answer is no. But it doesn’t mean Bodexpress didn’t try. In the aftermath of Maximum Security straying wide in the final turn of the Kentucky Derby, there was little consensus other than this: Thank whoever you pray to that no one — man or horse — was hurt because it could have been the sport’s most calamitous on-track incident. That’s saying something for this sport, which is, without hyperbole, in peril. From December to March, 23 horses at famed Santa Anita Park in California died. Another died Friday, the same day the filly Congrats Gal collapsed after a race in Baltimore. So many of the 131,256 people who came to Pimlico on Saturday had some knowledge of these tragedies, and if they didn’t, they had time to check their phones
PGA CHAMPIONSHIP Brooks Koepka took his place in PGA Championship history, minus the style points Sunday in Farmingdale, N.Y. In a raging wind that turned Bethpage Black into a beast, Koepka’s record seven-shot lead began to shrink. But he delivered the key shots
Jockey John Velazquez falls off Bodexpress, who then ran the race solo on Saturday.
The day after War of Will’s convincing win in the Preakness, his trainer pronounced the colt’s condition to be “great” and said there is “an extremely good shot” that the horse will try to win another leg of the Triple Crown next month. The plan is to ship the horse to Keeneland in Kentucky on Monday and then, if all goes well there, he’ll head to New York for the June 8 race, trying to become the 19th horse to win the second and third legs of the Triple Crown. Trainer Mark Casse’s horse won the Preakness by 1¼ lengths ahead of Everfast, who edged Owendale by a nose. Maximum Security and Country House, who skipped the Preakness Stakes, will not be competing at Belmont.

Cubs decide not to protest pitch delivery by Doolittle
Blues on brink of Cup final with 5-0 win over San Jose
After losing in the semifinals of three straight clay-court tournaments, Rafael Nadal dominated for stretches against longtime rival Novak Djokovic in a 6-0, 4-6, 6-1 win Sunday for a record ninth Italian Open title. Top-ranked Djokovic, meanwhile, appeared exhausted after spending more than 5 ½ hours on court against Juan Martin del Potro and Diego Schwartzman the previous two days. Djokovic was also coming off the Madrid Open title last week. In the women’s final earlier, Karolina Pliskova captured the biggest clay-court trophy of her career by beating Johanna Konta 6-3, 6-4. (AP)
The Cubs have dropped their protest over the pitching delivery of Nationals reliever Sean Doolittle. Cubs manager Joe Maddon made the announcement before the two teams played Sunday night. Maddon complained twice in the ninth inning of a 5-2 Nats win Saturday night about Doolittle tapping his right toe on the ground before coming to the plate. After being told Doolittle’s delivery was legal, Maddon announced the Cubs were playing the game under protest. On Sunday, Maddon said the protest was done to protect Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr., whose similar toe-tap had been deemed illegal. (AP)

The Blues’ relentless forecheck controlled the game in the second period, getting the two goals and outshooting the beleaguered Sharks 20-6. St. Louis also got 21 saves from Jordan Binnington in his first playoff shutout, and Schwartz became the first player with two hat tricks in one playoff run since 2008. (AP)

Christopher Abbott gives his full attention to the part of bombardier John Yossarian.
MUST-SEE THIS WEEK
In ‘Catch-22,’ Hulu offers a win-win TV REVIEW There were once 16 million Americans who had fought and survived World War II; this year, the number of those veterans who are still alive will dip below 400,000. What remains, besides history books and memorial sites, is an extraordinary culture trove centered on the American experience of the war — novels, songs, movies, musicals, TV shows — and the tender gratitude that grew into an agreed-upon nickname, the Greatest Generation. What gets lost in all the solemnity is a recognition that the human condition is a complex state of being. World War II is full of stories of doubt, despair and many other things that don’t look like honor or courage. That’s part of the reason Hulu’s enjoyable and surprisingly poignant six-episode adaptation of Joseph Heller’s novel “Catch-22” is such a refreshing find: It’s nice
10 p.m. Thursday on Sundance TV
An adaptation of Umberto Eco’s hit 1980 novel, this eight-part miniseries follows a friar (John Turturro) who investigates a series of deaths at an Italian monastery in 1327.
to be reminded that, along with heroism, the World War II generation possessed a healthy dose of cynicism, a distrust of power, a heightened sense of mischief, an insatiable horniness and a willingness, at times, to subvert the system to one’s benefit. All of this was and still is personified in one John Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a B-25 bombardier in the U.S. Army Air Forces, who gives voice to the outrage of war — that he never sees or knows the people he’s killing in the Italian countryside thousands of feet below him. Hulu’s version of “Catch-22” — written and created by Luke Davies and David Michôd and shepherded by executive producer George Clooney and others — strips the story down to its essential brilliance and then builds it back up into a sweeping, beautifully filmed, humorous yet tragic tale of a young man forever changed by war. Abbott excels at portraying Yossarian’s contrarian insouciance, beginning at a California training camp where he is having

an affair with the wife (Julie Ann Emery) of his ill-tempered training commander, Col. Scheisskopf (Clooney). Counting on the war being over before he can be assigned, Yossarian instead quickly
finds himself in combat. To make its point about horror and fear, this “Catch-22” takes time to fixate on the beauty of young men and women swimming off the coast, carousing in nearby villas, having the time of their lives. Many of those lives are cut short. As Yossarian desperately tries to reach his mission quota, it keeps being raised by the hard-assed Col. Cathcart (Kyle Chandler, who seems to have a grand time snacking on scenery), dashing his hopes of going home. As his friends keep dying around him, Yossarian begins to panic, and the lasting themes in “Catch-22” are affirmed: There is very little to celebrate about having gone to war.
Now that the series finale of “Game of Thrones” is in the books, take a behind-thescenes look at the making of the final season in this feature-length documentary from filmmaker Jeanie Finlay.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wouk dies at 103
Herman Wouk, the versatile, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of such million-selling novels as “The Caine Mutiny” and “The Winds of War,” died on Friday at 103. Wouk died in his sleep at his home in Palm Springs, Calif. The author, whose steady Jewish faith inspired his stories of religious values and secular success, was just 10 days shy of his 104th birthday. He was working on a book until the end, his literary agent said. (AP) “John Wick: Chapter 3” tops domestic box office with $57 million

We can only assume that Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Eve (Inbar Lavi) are up to no good.
Not to go overboard with religious imagery, but Fox sent the series “Lucifer” to cancellation limbo, only for Netflix to resurrect the show and release Season 4 earlier this month. In case you aren’t one of the devoted fans who prayed for divine intervention to rescue “Lucifer,” here’s the premise.
The smug and rebellious angel Lucifer was kicked out of heaven and sent to rule hell. In the TV version (based on Neil Gaiman’s comic book), he grew bored with the underworld and made an ironic move to Los Angeles — the “City of Angels.” In his new life, handsome and debonair Lucifer (Tom Ellis) runs a nightclub and partners with tightly wound police detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Then at the

end of Season 3, she saw Lucifer’s yucky red “devil face.” Thanks to Netflix, now we’ll know how their relationship will unfold! Crimes must be
solved, and religious questions must be pondered as Lucifer wonders if he is innately evil. For comic relief, we have Lucifer’s quips: “How devilish! And

I would know, after all.” Now that the show is on Netflix instead of Fox, it needs to adjust its rhythms a bit. When a scene ends, it seems there will be a commercial break — only the next scene pops up, because Netflix is an ad-free zone. There’s also about 10 more minutes per episode. But the added time doesn’t drag things down. There’s more time for jokes and for the season’s rich plot lines, which include the issues raised by an angel/human baby, as well as a looming theological question: “Who’s da New King of Hell?” Could it be … Lucifer?

“You are an amazing dad, and there is so much that is said in this simple gesture. This is more than hair. This is you saying, ‘I care about my little girl.’” @JENNLEACOLE, praising Alexis
Ohanian for revealing he was trying to join Facebook groups about natural hair in order to learn more about styling the hair of his and Serena Williams’ daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Ohanian’s admission earned some backlash from people who appreciated the effort but noted that such groups are often safe spaces for black women.
“R.I.P. Grumpy Cat. I’m sure cat heaven is so beautiful that you’ll hate it slightly less than you thought you would.” @TEAMSYMBIOTE, remembering the internet sensation
after her owners announced Friday that the perpetually annoyed feline had died at age 7 from complications from a urinary tract infection earlier in the week. Grumpy Cat, real name Tardar Sauce, earned fame after a photo of her scowl was posted to Reddit in 2012, and quickly became a longlasting meme. Upon news of her death, fans penned glowing tributes to the cat, saying she “[brought] a lot of happiness to the world just for how she looked.” Grumpy Cat had a form of dwarfism, which likely caused her everlasting frown.
“Bodexpress getting a DNF in the Preakness is ridiculous. He finished. The jockey didn’t.” @NEALTURPIN, joking about the colt
bucking his jockey, John Velazquez, right after the start of Saturday’s race, before continuing to run with the rest of the field. Though Bodexpress gave some of the other horses a run for their money, he finished last and was disqualified from the race. Bodexpress continued to dodge outriders trying to catch him once the race was over before he was finally corralled. Velazquez was not injured in his fall.

“Unpopular opinion but I’m in full support of Robert Pattinson as Batman and the rest of you need to let ‘Twilight’ go.” @ITSMECLORISSA, tweeting about the rumors that Robert Pattinson has been cast as the new Dark Knight for director Matt Reeves’ 2021 film. The news caused initial confusion, but many fans now support the choice. Others, however, still think of Pattinson as vampire Edward Cullen from the campy, teen-oriented “Twilight” films, though he’s starred in many critically acclaimed indie films since.

Kanye subtly hints that four kids is enough Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s newborn son is named Psalm, Kardashian West revealed Friday on Twitter. The reality star posted a screen grab of a text thread with her husband, which included a photo of the boy nestled in a crib. “With the arrival of our fourth child we are blessed beyond measure,” Kanye wrote. “We have everything we need.” The baby is their second boy and their second child to be born via surrogate because of a potentially lifethreatening medical condition that complicated Kardashian West’s two pregnancies. The baby joins 5-year-old sister North, 3-year-old brother Saint and 15-month-old sister Chicago. (AP)

So, you did it in both.” The role ultimately went to Emilia Clarke.
