Obama: ‘Jersey Shore Is Back’ President, Christie tour N.J. to promote tourism post-Sandy

Hearsay

SAUL LOEB/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

President Barack Obama, right, walks Tuesday with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie after arriving in New Jersey to tout the state’s tourism seven months after Sandy.

Republicans criticized Christie last year for praising Obama’s response to the storm in the days before the presidential election and for allowing himself to be seen prominently with the president. This time, the imagery is less

powerful but equally convenient. Christie, who flew with Obama aboard his Marine One helicopter Tuesday, is running for re-election in a Democratic-leaning state, and Obama gets to be seen with a high-visibility Republican at a time

Seven months after Superstorm Sandy, the Red Cross still hasn’t spent more than a third of the $303 million it raised to assist victims of the storm, a strategy the organization says will help address needs that weren’t immediately apparent. “The Red Cross has never been a recovery operation,” said Ben Smilowitz, executive director of the Disaster Accountability Project, a nonprofit group that monitors aid groups. “Their responsibility has always been mass care.” (AP)

when such bipartisanship is rare in Washington. “Republicans, Democrats, independents — we all came together, because New Jersey is more important and our citizens are more important than any kind of politics at all,” Christie said. JIM KUHNHENN (AP)

Consumer Confidence at 5-Year High Washington

“I think it’s not too bad of a change, actually. The vocabulary words, they’re pretty easy to someone who studies well enough.” — A RV IND M A H A NK A LI, 13, OF NEW YORK, AFTER HAVING TAKEN THE FIRST VOCABULARY TEST IN THE HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL SPELLING BEE ON TUESDAY

Americans’ confidence in the economy jumped in May to a five-year high, lifted by a better outlook for hiring, rising home prices and more optimism about business conditions. The increase suggests consumers may keep boosting economic growth this year. The Conference Board, a New York-based private research group, said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose in May to 76.2. That’s up from a reading of 69.0 in April and the highest since February 2008. The jump in confidence followed a separate report that showed the housing recovery is strengthening.

7.5%

The unemployment rate — a fouryear low. Some of the decrease is because many people have given up looking for work. (AP)

Home prices jumped 10.9 percent in March compared with a year ago, the most since April 2006, according to the Standard & Poor’s/ Case Shiller 20-city index. All 20 cities showed year-over-year gains. The reports contributed to a strong day on Wall Street. The Dow surged more than 177 points in early morning trading. Consumers’ confidence in the economy is watched closely because

their spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. Conference Board economist Lynn Franco said Americans are more optimistic after worrying earlier in the year about higher taxes and federal spending cuts. Higher home prices and stocks gains are making Americans feel wealthier. That has offset some of the pinch from the tax increase and kept consumers spending. A nd t he job ma rket has improved steadily over the past six months. The economy has added an average of 208,000 jobs a month since November. That’s well above the monthly average of 138,000 during the previous six months. MARTIN CRUTSINGER (AP)

Asbury Park, N.J. President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie promoted the Jersey Shore’s summer tourism economy Tuesday while praising the federal government’s role in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, reprising their beach-buddy routine in a display of mutual assistance with potential political dividends. Amid a steady drizzle, the president declared that the state’s popular shore was back seven months after the devastating storm bore down on its famed boardwalks and seaside towns. “After all you’ve dealt with, after all you’ve been through, the Jersey Shore is back and it is open for business,” Obama said.

The founder of an online currency transfer business was indicted in the U.S. along with six others in a $6 billion money-laundering scheme described as “staggering” in its scope, authorities said Tuesday. Arthur Budovsky — the founder of Liberty Reserve, a Costa Rica-based website long favored by cybercrime scammers — was arrested in Spain on Friday. A defendant identified as Budovsky’s partner, Vladimir Kats, was in custody in New York.

Arms race may turn civil war into an East-West dispute Beirut Europe’s decision to allow the arming of Syrian rebels and Russia’s renewed pledge to supply Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime with missiles could transform an already brutal civil war into an East-West proxy fight. The possibility of an arms race in Syria overshadowed attempts by the U.S. and Russia to bring representatives of the Assad regime and Syria’s political opposition to peace talks at an international conference in Geneva, possibly next month. The talks, though seen as a long shot, constitute the international community’s only plan for ending the conflict that has killed more than 70,000 people. In Syria, the commander of the main Western-backed umbrella group of rebel brigades said he urgently needs Western anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles. “We are very disappointed,” Gen.

MEANWHILE …

Mixed Reactions The international community remains largely at odds over how to resolve the conflict in Syria. Here’s what several leading nations are saying. (AP) United Kingdom: Britain so far has not specified what weapons it might send to Syrian rebels, though British Foreign Secretary William Hague said peace talks are a priority and that “we are not taking any decision to send arms to anyone.”

“Important visit with brave fighters in #Syria who are risking their lives for freedom and need our help.” — SEN. JOHN McCA IN, TWEETING TUES-

United States: Washington welcomes the EU decision to lift an arms embargo as a show of support for the opposition, a State Department spokesman said, adding that the Obama administration will continue to provide the rebels with non-lethal aid. Russia: Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denounced the lifting of the EU arms embargo. His deputy affirmed Tuesday that Russia won’t abandon plans to send S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria, despite Western and Israeli criticism. Israel: Jerusalem has warned that it would be prepared to attack any Russian missile shipments, further raising the risk of a regional war. Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said that the Israeli military “will know what to do” if they are delivered.

Salim Idris, military chief of the Free Syrian Army, said of the European Union’s apparent decision to not send weapons until after the Geneva talks, if at all. “We don’t have any patience [any] more.” In any case, Europe might think twice about sending such weapons

into a chaotic war where they could be seized by Islamic militants. Britain, which along with France had pushed for ending the EU arms embargo, wants to use the threat of arming the rebels as leverage to ensure that Assad negotiates in good faith.

DAY, A DAY AFTER HE QUIETLY SLIPPED INTO SYRIA TO MEET WITH REBELS

Syria’s fractured opposition, which has not yet committed to the Geneva talks, could also be lured to the table if attendance is linked to receiving weapons in the event that talks fail. Opposition leaders have said they will only participate in talks if Assad’s departure tops the agenda, a demand Assad and his Russian backers have rejected. Assad’s regime has provided no sign of any intent to cede power. The regime and the opposition remain largely deadlocked, but in recent weeks, the regime has scored a number of battlefield successes that might make it less inclined to negotiate.

Orange Cones a Cue to Stay Alert The longest and most active highway work zone in the region this summer will be the 29-mile stretch of Interstate 95/395 in Northern Virginia where the 95 Express Lanes are under construction. So it was fitting that safety advocates chose the Dale City rest area on I-95 this month to launch their annual campaign against distracted driving in work zones. The campaign is called “Orange Cones. No Phones.” But those concerned with traffic safety note that it doesn’t necessarily take a phone to distract a driver. The summer driving season also brings out the map twisters and radio fiddlers. It may help that as of July 1, Virginia police can pull over a driver for texting. But “fear of a fine

shouldn’t be the motivating factor” in avoiding the behavior, said state police Capt. Michael Spivey, commander of the Fairfax Division. There are 1,500 people working along the I-95/395 construction zone. If that doesn’t persuade drivers to look out, perhaps this will: Those most likely to be injured or killed in work zones are motorists.

Seasonal Hazard Not all work zones are stationary. The Virginia Department of Transportation is also asking drivers to watch for crews mowing grass, pruning trees, cutting brush and removing litter.

Clean-Fuel Tags A traveler who recently moved to Gainesville, Va., and commutes to Ballston wrote to ask if there are any loopholes for getting access to Virginia’s High Occupancy Vehicle lanes with a hybrid vehicle. Can people who have the necessary clean-fuel license plates and who are moving out of the area sell or

transfer them to others? No, no, no. These aren’t baseball cards to collect and trade. Drivers of hybrids who want the cleanf uel plates must a p p l y f or t h e m . There are large fines for violating the registration laws.

Hybrids in HOV Lanes For years, Virginia travelers have written in this time of year to ask if the General Assembly had given a one-year extension to the allegedly temporary exemption allowing hybrids in HOV lanes even if the

drivers didn’t have enough passengers. But last year, the law changed. Drivers of hybrids can use some HOV lanes during rush hours, provided they have the required plates. The hybrid rules vary by highway: On I-66, only hybrids with clean-fuel plates issued before July 1, 2011, are permitted to use the HOV lanes during rush hours unless there are at least two people aboard. On I-95 and I-395 HOV lanes, only hybrids with clean-fuel plates issued before July 1, 2006, are permitted during rush hours unless at least three people are aboard. On the Dulles Toll Road HOV lanes, hybrid drivers just need the clean-fuel plate. Robert Thomson offers commuter advice at washingtonpost.com as Dr. Gridlock.

A CSX cargo train crashed into a trash truck and derailed Tuesday in a Baltimore suburb, and the explosion that followed rattled homes at least a half-mile away and collapsed nearby buildings, setting them on fire, officials and witnesses said. The train went off the tracks at about 2 p.m. in White Marsh, about 10 miles northeast of Baltimore. Hazmat teams were on the scene, but fire officials said no toxic inhalants were burning at the site. Baltimore County Public Safety, however, told residents in sight of the smoke plume to evacuate the area, at least within 20 blocks. At least 15 cars derailed, said Baltimore County Fire Chief

McDonnell reviewed the report and will make “a major announcement regarding restoration of rights” today, his spokesman said. L ARRY O’DELL (AP)

13.7M In all, 13.7 million U.S. households with children under age 18 now include mothers who are the main breadwinners. Of those, 5.1 million, or 37 percent, are married, while 8.6 million, or 63 percent, are single. (AP)

The Mothers’ Load More moms than ever are stepping up as breadwinners, a study says Washington A record number of American women are now the sole or primary breadwinners in their families, a sign of the rising influence of working mothers, a new study finds. Mothers now keep finances afloat in 40 percent of households with children, up from just 11 percent in 1960. While most of these families are headed by single mothers, a growing number are married mothers who bring in more income than their husbands, according to a study to be released today by the Pew Research Center.

Demographers say the change is all but irreversible. “This change is just another milestone in the dramatic transformation we have seen in family structure and family dynamics over the past 50 years or so,” said Kim Parker of the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project. “Women’s roles have changed, marriage rates have declined — the family looks a lot different than it used to.” The trend is being driven mostly by long-term demographic changes, including higher rates of education and labor force participation. Today, women are more likely than men to hold bachelor’s degrees,

LOCAL REACTION

“People say to me, ‘Doesn’t it bother you that you earn more than your husband?’ And the reality is, no, it doesn’t. … That wasn’t my primary motivation for getting married. I loved him.” — HEIDI PA RSONS, 44, OF ALEXANDRIA, WHO OWNS A RECRUITING FIRM. HER HUSBAND IS A MASSAGE THERAPIST.

“We showed our kids that anyone can be a nurturer or go out and be a primary breadwinner. Your gender doesn’t matter.” — M A RCIA GRECO, 57, WHO WORKS IN FAIRFA X, SAYING THAT SHE HAD NO CHOICE ABOUT BECOMING HER FAMILY’S BREADWINNER WHEN HER HUSBAND WAS LAID OFF NEARLY 20 YEARS AGO

The income gap between the families is large — $80,000 in median family income for married couples vs. $23,000 for single mothers. Both groups of breadwinner moms — married and unmarried — have grown sharply. (AP)

15% Among all U.S. households with children, the share of married breadwinner moms has jumped from 4 percent in 1960 to 15 percent in 2011. For single mothers, the share has increased from 7 percent to 25 percent. (AP)

Raising a Challenge Roughly 3 in 4 adults said the increasing number of women working for pay has made it harder for parents to raise children. Roughly 79 percent of Americans reject the notion that women should return to traditional roles, but only 21 percent said the trend of more mothers of young children working outside the home is good for society, according to a Pew survey to be released today. (AP) and they make up nearly half — 47 percent — of the U.S. workforce. But recent changes in the economy, too, have played a part. Job losses in manufacturing and construction, fields that used to provide high pay to a mostly male workforce, have lifted the relative earnings of married women, even among those in such mid-level positions as teachers or nurses. The jump in working women has been prominent among those who are mothers — from 37 percent in 1968 to 65 percent in 2011 — reflecting, in part, increases for those who went looking for jobs after the recent recession. At the same time, marriage rates have fallen to record lows. Forty percent of births now occur out of wedlock, leading to a rise in single-mother households. Andrew Cherlin, a professor of sociology and public policy at Johns Hopkins University, said that to his surprise, public attitudes toward working mothers have changed little over the years. He predicts the growing numbers will lead to a growing constituency among women in favor of such work policies as paid family leave, as well as safety-net policies such as child care support for single mothers. “Many of our workplaces and schools still follow a male-breadwinner model, assuming that the wives are at home to take care of child care needs,” Cherlin said. “Until we realize that the breadwinner-homemaker marriage will never again be the norm, we won’t provide working parents with the support they need.” HOPE YEN (AP)

The Nationals’ Bryce Harper and the Orioles’ Manny Machado are already playing well beyond their years. The two 20-year-olds are either first or second on their teams in batting average and runs scored. In most cases, prospects spend considerable time in the minor leagues before being called up, but Harper and Machado are making an impact in the big leagues before turning 21. With Washington and Baltimore in the middle of the annual Battle of the Beltways, let’s look at the two stars likely to fuel this series for years to come. JASON BUTT (FOR EXPRESS)

Harper’s Defining Traits

Machado’s Defining Traits

.335

Relentless attitude: Harper attacks each game like a football player. Unfortunately for the youngster, that’s led to numerous injuries, including his most recent bout with bursitis in his left knee. He’s expected to miss the rest of the series vs. the Orioles. Harper’s been praised for his all-out hustle, yet criticized at times for putting his health at risk.

Proving he belongs: Harper and 21-year-old Angels outfielder Mike Trout have garnered tons of attention since taking the majors by storm in 2012. Machado was an afterthought when he was called up last August. Now, it’s a different story. The Orioles third baseman has a better batting average (.335) than Harper (.287) and Trout (.304).

Home Runs

Noticeable swing: Not many players in the game today have a swing like Harper’s, which has been compared to legendary slugger Babe Ruth’s. Harper has a slightly open lefthanded stance, with his bat cocked behind his ear. His swing can vary depending on the pitch, and he can hit with power and precision. Attacking early in the count: Harper doesn’t like to waste much time when he gets to the plate and sees something he likes. When swinging at the first pitch, Harper is batting a staggering .519, and 14 of his 43 hits this year have come on the first pitch.

Attention to detail: Machado is a perfectionist at the plate and in the field. Even during pregame warmups, he makes a point of throwing to the same spot, kicking the dirt when he misses. That kind of work ethic has led to a .981 fielding percentage, the sixth- best among third basemen in the majors. Mr. Clutch: When the pressure’s on, Machado comes through for his team. He has a .474 batting average with runners in scoring position and two outs. He’s also critical to the Orioles’ success, hitting .363 in Baltimore’s wins compared with .300 in losses.

Nike, which helped build Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong cancer charity into a global brand and introduced its familiar yellow wristband, is cutting ties with the foundation. The breakup was announced Tuesday by Livestrong officials. According to Livestrong and Nike, the company will stop making Livestrong apparel after 2013 but will honor the financial terms of their deal until it expires in 2014. Financial terms Armstrong were not released. The move by the sports shoe and clothing company ends a nine-year relationship that helped the foundation raise more than $100 million and made the charity’s bracelet an international symbol for cancer survivors. Nike dropped its personal sponsorship of Armstrong last October after U.S. Anti-Doping Agency exposed the team doping program and portrayed Armstrong as its ringleader. And after years of denials, Armstrong admitted earlier this year he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France seven times. JIM VERTUNO (AP)

Djokovic Knows What He Wants French Open Novak Djokovic does not try to hide his ambitions. He makes perfectly clear that he wants to win a French Open title more than anything. Embarking on a bid to complete a career Grand Slam and fill the glaring hole on his résumé, the No. 1-ranked Djokovic pulled out a tight first set en route to a 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-5 victory Tuesday in the first round against David Goffin. Last year, Djokovic lost to seven-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal in the final in Paris. That ended the Serbian’s 27-match Grand Slam winning streak and,

He promised Duncan they would return after blowing a 2-0 lead in the conference finals a year ago to Oklahoma City, and speculation is picking up on whether this might be Duncan’s final season in the NBA. “I think everybody on the team, we really wanted to do it for him,” Parker said.

MYKKI. BLANCO. That’s all an entire page of my notebook says. Blanco repeated her name a lot when she played Comet Ping Pong in March, like a mantra. And now her new EP “Betty Rubble: The Initiation” is out, its NSFW cover radiating her sexy, transgressive glory. Blanco’s been making a name since her 2012 debut, “Cosmic Angel: Illuminati Prince/ss.” By Shauna She turned up in a Miller fashion spread for Interview magazine and in an excellent cover story in the Village Voice. Pronouns are fluid: Michael Quattlebaum, Blanco’s given name, is a gay man; Blanco is a female persona. Both are muscled, tattooed and graceful. Backed live by just a DJ, Blanco’s style is somewhere between ’90s New York dark-rappers Gavediggaz and Kurt Cobain — which is to say she is a wild punk. On an older track, “Wavvy,” she warns haters that she’ll slap ’em “with my limp wrist, bro.” She doesn’t explain herself. If you’re riding her dark, turnt-up flow, you get it. Hip-hop has not been a gayfriendly genre, but much has shifted in even just the past five years. This is Blanco’s time, when swagger and authenticity trumps all. Rudi Greenberg is busy watching “Arrested Development.” Inside Jokes will return next week.

Music and a Message A Tribe Called Red mixes tribal powwow sounds with digital beats — and politics Concerts Here’s what A Tribe Called Red remembers about last Thanksgiving: A swarm of beery bros in RGIII jerseys wobbling down U Street, trying to keep Grandma’s pumpkin pie from hitting the sidewalk. On a holiday celebrating hearth and harvest, the Washington Redskins had just defeated the Dallas Cowboys.

Inside U Street Music Hall, the Canadian DJ trio was spinning dance tracks that meshed traditional powwow music — a style created by Native Americans — with bullish digital bass. On the dance floor, at least a dozen wore burgundy and gold. But nobody in the DJ booth grabbed the microphone to trash Dan Snyder. “Personally, I want to see those changes from the inside,” says Bear Witness, who helped form A Tribe Called Red in 2008. “I don’t want to have to fight against a football team to get them to change [the name]. I want them to realize that

Backstory

What’s In a Name? A Tribe Called Red took shape in 2008 as part of a monthly dance party — dubbed “Electric Pow Wow” — that drew aboriginals searching for a place in Ottawa’s nightlife scene. The group’s name is a play on the legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, as well as a nod to various powwow groups whose names start with those same three words. (T WP)

they have to change.” The music of A Tribe Called Red — Witness, Ian “Dee Jay NDN” Campeau and Dan “DJ Shub” General — sends a potent political message with a subtle touch. Over the years, the group’s brand of electrified powwow music has become associated with Idle No More, a protest movement in Canada advocating for indigenous sovereignty and environmental protection. The trio’s riveting new album, “Nation II Nation,” will keep the g r oup on t he road through the summer, includi n g a s t op i n D.C. today. True to traditional powwow music, A Tribe Called Red’s songs celebrate togetherness and survival, steering the group’s aboriginal heritage into the urban future. “Being political … it’s automatic,” Witness says. When members of A Tribe Called Red take the stage sporting Atlanta Braves caps or Cleveland Indians hoodies, they say they’re taking ownership of hurtful images by integrating them into their art. “We like to call it ‘active decolonization’ or ‘indiginizing,’ ” says Campeau, a father of two who recently launched a campaign to rename the Napean Redskins, a youth football team in Ontario. As artists, Campeau says his group is “taking these images t hat send t he w rong idea about First Nations peoples and we’re wearing it, and using it, and saying something with it.” CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

ing, and he has no plan to alter his style or substance. He’s the rare black host with national TV and radio platforms, one who sees his job as challenging Americans to examine their assumptions on such thorny issues as poverty, education, and racial and gender equality. In other words, he doesn’t squander his opportunities on PBS’ daily talk show “Tavis Smiley,” which marked its 10th year and 2,000th episode this month, or on public radio’s “The Tavis Smiley Show” and “Smiley & West,” the latter of which he shares with Cornel West. Smi ley considers himself engaged in a calling as much as a career: “This is the kind of work I think needs to be done. I’m trying to entertain and empower people.” Smiley, 48, also doesn’t shrink from the repercussions that occur when his opinions, delivered on radio and in interviews in his distinctively punchy cadence, strike a nerve. He has drawn the ire of conservatives and, because of his insis-

tent criticism of President Barack Obama’s policies, that of some liberals and African-Americans. “There’s nothing I have tried to hold the president accountable on that my white progressive colleagues have not,” Smiley says. Smiley’s program is still considered a talk show, and he often has celebrity guests — such as Tom

When Harrison Ford was making the rounds to promote the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” Smiley says his audience got something unique “because I’m the only black guy Harrison Ford is talking to.” It’s a valid point in a genre dominated solely by white interviewers. Smiley speaks to an overwhelmingly white audience and says he appreciates the opportunity to introduce them to a different perspective. “You’re going to be challenged when you address inconvenient truths,” Smiley says. “I have no monopoly on the truth but can try to raise questions that get at the truth.” LYNN ELBER (AP)

“Is there a football future for LeBron James? In the pantheon of things we’d like to see in the NFL, it’s right up there.” — SHUTDOWN CORNER’S DOUG FARRAR AT SPORTS.YAHOO.COM/BLOGS supports former

“But if one thing seems certain, this is a set of episodes that’s not going to give instant gratification but could age well, giving us a fuller sense of everything once the full story is told, a few years from now. As always, patience will pay off, even if I chose not to heed that advice on Sunday.” — THE DAILY SIZZLE’S MARCUS GILMER AT BLOGS.SUNTIMES.COM encourages repeat

“The [‘Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property’] report proposes that software would be loaded on computers that would somehow figure out if you were a pirate, and if you were, it would lock your computer up and take all your files hostage until you call the police and confess your crime.” — CORY DOCTOROW AT BOINGBOING.NET

“I fully expect this Yahoo media-buying spree will end with the takeover of Kickstarter, which Yahoo will then use to try to fund itself.” —@LEHMANNCHRIS, a former Yahoo news editor, reacts to news that his old employer submitted a proposal to purchase videostreaming site Hulu a week after paying $1.1 billion to acquire Tumblr.

Sudoku

MEDIUM

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may attract a great deal of attention today by doing something that comes very naturally — when others aren’t willing to do the same. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You don’t want to be sold a bill of goods today; be sure you examine all possibilities carefully before accepting one as the truth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) That which begins quickly is likely to take on a great deal of importance — before, finally, someone bursts the bubble and takes the air out. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) He or she who has been out of the picture may affect you indirectly but significantly today; his or her return is very likely. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You can take a more liberal view of certain recent events today and come to a new understanding of your own surprising role.

Yesterday’s Solution

Yesterday’s Solution

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Focus on that which is concrete and understandable today; don’t waste your time on theories that have no real basis in fact. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Some who are more impressionable than you are willing to accept almost anything as the truth. You can set them straight. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can provide others with much that is needed today, but take care you don’t give too much of your own and come up short yourself.

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.

Comics

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Just because something is bigger, brighter or louder doesn’t mean it’s for you. Try a more subtle approach. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You can learn how to do something rather difficult simply by following someone else’s simple instructions. It’s that easy!

Today: Turning sunny, very warm and humid today. Mainly clear tonight.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You may be surrounded by those who are unwilling to accept that what you have to offer is largely the truth. Patience will see you through. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Unseen dangers abound; take care that you don’t trade safety for expedience! That which is easy may not be best for you.
