In West Point speech, president outlines his new foreign doctrine West Point, N.Y. President Ba rack Oba ma on Wednesday laid out a new, postwar foreign policy after more than a decade of combat overseas, outlining a global counterterrorism initiative and arguing for a balance between interventionism and “foreign entanglements.” In a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy, he stressed the importance of nonmilitary options in addressing the world’s foreign policy challenges, as well as international action. Coming more than six years into a presidency that has been devoted to winding down the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama’s announcement of his new foreign policy approach also featured a defense of his handling of foreign crises and a suggestion that some critics are out of step with a nation weary after 13 years of war. He sought to strike a balance between those who want to avoid involvement in foreign conﬂicts and “interventionists on the left and right” who want to apply U.S. power to solve various world problems. “Each side can point to history to support its claims,” Obama said. “But I believe neither view fully speaks to the demands of this moment.” Obama’s speech appeared aimed less at changing the terms of the national foreign policy debate in Washington than appealing to a war-weary electorate. It echoed Obama’s earlier defenses of his for-

Investigators: 115-Day Average Wait Time at Phoenix VA Hospital Washington Investigators identiﬁed 1,700 veterans awaiting medical care at the Phoenix VA hospital but not on an ofﬁcial waiting list and an average wait of 115 days for a ﬁrst appointment for those who were listed, the Veterans Affairs Department’s
inspector general said Wednesday. The IG concluded that “inappropriate scheduling practices are systemic throughout” the nationwide VA health-care system. Richard J. Grifﬁn, the department’s acting inspector general, said in an interim report that investigators had “substantiated serious con-
ditions” at the Phoenix VA hospital. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., immediately called for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign. Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall also called for Shinseki to resign on Twitter, and was joined
by Montana Democratic Sen. John Walsh, according to CNN. Shinseki called the IG’s ﬁndings “reprehensible to me, to this department and to veterans.” He said he was directing the Phoenix VA to immediately address each of the 1,700 veterans waiting for appointments. MAT THEW DALY (AP)

Oxon Hill, Md. Words such as “protege” and “gesundheit” were quickly overshadowed by jokes about the George Foreman grill and the game “Minesweeper” as the onstage preliminary rounds began Wednesday morning at the 87th Scripps National Spelling Bee. With most spellers having no trouble with their words, the focus shifted more to the laugh-out-loud sentences that have become a regular part of the Bee in recent years. When Lillian Allingham of Hockessin, Del., asked for a sentence for “odyssey,” pronouncer Jacques Bailly made the audience chuckle by speaking of someone who “got lost in Costco for 35 minutes.” “You should give sentences more often,” Isabel Cholbi of San Bernardino, Calif., told Bailly.
Bailly also spun a short tale of someone who put down the phone to “play ‘Minesweeper’ until the yelling stopped” to help describe the word “belligerent.” The word “coloratura” wound up in a sentence about someone getting their hand caught in a George Foreman grill. Another sentence opined: “To say that life will never be the same after kindergarten graduation is hyperbole.” It got to the point where spellers were disappointed to receive a word without a punch-line sentence. “I only want a sentence if it’s funny,” Victoria Allen of Green River, Wyo., said upon getting the word “salaam.” Each speller had a chance to earn
points by spelling up to two words onstage during the preliminaries. The scores will be combined with a computerized spelling and vocabulary test taken Tuesday to determine who advances to the semiﬁnals today. The ﬁnals take place tonight. T he w i n ner get s more t ha n $33,000 in cash and prizes. The spellers were 41 for 41 until the telltale bell sounded for the ﬁrst time, when Amy Maldonado of Naples, Fla., was eliminated on “keeshond” (a Dutch dog breed). Amy misspelled it “kaushaund.” Only 24 of the 281 spellers failed to advance to the next round. JOSEPH WHITE (AP)
Kerry Tells Snowden to ‘Man Up’ Washington Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden a fugitive and challenged him to “man up and come back to the United States.” Kerry was asked about Snowden in a nationally broadcast interview in the wake of an interview in which Snowden said he never intended to be holed up in Russia but was forced to go there because Washington decided to “revoke my passport.” Asked about this, Kerry replied on NBC’s “Today” show: “Well,
for a supposedly smart guy, that’s a pretty dumb answer, after all.” Snowden, a former NSA contract systems analyst, leaked a massive volume of NSA documents to the media. “If Mr. Snowden wants to come back to the United States,” Kerry said, “we’ll have him on a ﬂight today.” In his interview with NBC anchor Brian Williams, a portion of which was broadcast Tuesday, Snowden said he was “trained as a spy” and argued that he had a larger role in U.S. intelligence than the government has acknowledged.

A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles
2 0 1 4
The future of Metro is here Have you seen it? A shiny, new, state-of-the-art train passing through your Metrorail station? It’s Metro’s new 7000 Series railcar. The new cars are safer and more customer friendly than those in service today, and will provide a new level of technology and on-board amenities for Metro riders. The 7000 Series railcars are being tested on the system now, and you can expect to start riding later this year.
The countdown to Silver Line is on. Earlier this week the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority handed control of the Silver Line over to Metro, and we are preparing for the start of passenger service this summer. In the coming weeks, Metro will run trains on the Silver Line tracks to test signals and traction power, begin regular maintenance inspections, train employees inside the ﬁve new Silver Line stations, run security drills and adjust bus routes to serve the Silver Line. At the same time, the Airports Authority and its contractor will complete their own checklist of items before we can open the Silver Line to passengers. If all goes well, the Silver Line will be open in 90 days – or less. The new Silver Line will link the entire region to new destinations for jobs, education, entertainment, dining, shopping and living. Five new stations anchor the Silver Line – four in Tysons and one farther west at Wiehle Avenue in Reston. When the Silver Line opens this year it won’t go to Dulles Airport; a further extension of the rail line taking you to Dulles and beyond is expected to open in 2018. Traveling inbound, Silver Line trains will join the Orange Line at East Falls Church station and travel through downtown D.C. to Largo Town Center, serving all stations along the way. Learn more about where the Silver Line can take you and stay on top of the latest news at silverlinemetro.com.
A Visitor’s Guide to Metro Are you spending a few days in the DC area? Do you have friends and family coming to visit this summer? Remember these tips for a safe and convenient ride on the Metro system. •
Metro train doors don’t reopen like elevator doors. So if you stick your arm in a closing door, you may get stuck or cause a train malfunction.
Slips, trips and falls are the main cause of injury in the Metro system. Please, don’t run through the stations or up and down the escalators. Take your time; the Washington Monument isn’t going anywhere.
Save money by purchasing a SmarTrip® card. You’ll save $1 per trip with a SmarTrip® card, and tapping your card to enter the system will help you ﬁt right in with the locals.
Keep two hands on your mobile device and maintain awareness of your surroundings to help protect against theft. And if you run into trouble, contact Metro Transit Police at 202-962-2121.

Somali women brush off gender norms by serving in military
Voting continued Wednesday in Egypt, but not many people went to the polls. CAIRO
Turnout Still Low in Egypt Egyptian authorities scrambled to rescue the country’s presidential election from the embarrassment of low voter turnout that has dented former army chief AbdelFattah el-Sissi’s hopes for an enthusiastic show of public support. Few people trickled to the polls Wednesday even after the balloting was extended for a third day. (AP)
Mogadishu, Somalia With an AK47 automatic riﬂe slung over her shoulder, Naeemo Abdi frisks people coming into a Mogadishu police station. When she holds back a man who tried to enter unchecked, he scowls at her and barks: “Woman and soldier?” She did not respond but directed the man to the security checkpoint. It’s unusual to see a female in the military in traditionally conservative Somali society where women’s duties are generally at home and limited to family chores. But Abdi and other determined women are breaking down those barriers.
“Gender is not boundary. If committed, women can work far better than men.”
FARAH ABDI WARSAMEH (AP)
— N A EEMO A BDI, ONE OF ABOUT 1,500 FEMALE SOMALI SOLDIERS
About 1,500 females are now in the military of 20,000, according to estimates. The lean 25-year-old Abdi explains that she has endured many challenges joining the army two years ago. She moved from a conventional domestic role as a wife and mother of three to work in the army because she liked the prestige. She said she faced massive opposition from her spouse and family who thought she’d be cast off should she decide to become a soldier.
Somali women face stigma when they try to join the country’s military.
“It was difﬁcult, but I must do this to serve my country unreservedly,” she said. Somali army officials report f e m a le a r m y r e c r u it s h a v e increased following the ouster from the capital in 2011 of the Islamic extremist rebels of al-Shabab. The army now controls Mogadishu, the
capital, most other cities and large parts of the countryside. At work they often wear camouﬂage trouser uniforms, boots and bright blue or purple headscarves topped by a beret with the military’s insignia. At other times they wear long skirts to observe Islamic dress codes. In spite of their progress, women complain of discrimination and inequality in the army, saying they are restricted to menial jobs. Some female soldiers say their dedication to the army cost them their marriage and some family relations. Still, the new female army recruits take pleasure in their gains so far. “We hope equality in our army will make a better impression in our community,” Abdi said. “We want to show that we can serve for good in our country.” ABDI GULED (AP)

A PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTESTER IN THAILAND demonstrates Wednesday how his rights were violated in last week’s military coup. Hundreds gathered Wednesday at Bangkok’s Victory Monument, where scuffles broke out in which water bottles and other objects were hurled at soldiers.
What a difference a landslide victory makes. In 2005, India’s Narendra Modi was denied a U.S. visitor’s visa because of concerns that he violated religious freedoms as a political leader. But since his party’s resounding win in national elections this month, the U.S. government has rushed to repair the breach. President Barack Obama called to invite Modi to Washington. Secretary of State John Kerry sent his regards. And after Modi’s swearingin ceremony Monday as prime minister, Nisha Biswal, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for South and Cen-
tral Asia, tweeted about the “wonderful celebration of democracy.” Still, U.S. ofﬁcials are wary of Modi’s Hindu nationalist past. In the days to come, the U.S. government will have to overcome what Modi’s acquaintances call his deep sense of grievance with the United States for keeping him at arm’s length. “With America, he may not readily show keenness, but he won’t let ties f lounder, either,” said a senior ofﬁcial from Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, or BJP, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject. “He is not vindictive, but he will not forget, either.” ANNIE GOWEN (THE WASHINGTON POST )
But It’s So Hot There ... A new campaign started in the petro-rich Gulf state of Qatar seeks to encourage tourists to dress modestly and not offend religious sentiments in the staunchly Muslim country. The grassroots campaign includes a brochure to be distributed to arriving visitors that details what sort of attire conforms to accepted societal standards. Among its recommendations — no shorts for men. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Here’s what happened the last time a D.C. Council chairman moved to cut streetcar funding shortly before a ﬁnal budget vote: an utter revolt, led by a loosely organized Internet-based group of transit advocates who bombarded thenChairman Vincent Gray and his colleagues with passionate, often angry emails, phone calls and blog comments demanding that the funding be restored. Within hours, it was. Back in 2010, Gray’s budget plan would have drastically reduced funding for the ﬁrst streetcar line, down H Street and Benning Road NE. Now he’s on the other side of the issue. The D.C. Council on Wednesday supported Chairman Phil Mendelson’s plan to sharply roll back Gray’s proposed budget for the program and to dramatically reduce a generous, recurring revenue stream approved last year that streetcar backers say is crucial for the project. The proposal will “derail the future of streetcar,” according to a Gray administration spokesman. Thus far, the response from streetcar advocates has been relatively measured. The blog Greater Greater Washington and its founder, David Alpert, have not issued the same sort of call to arms that derailed the proposed 2010 cuts. In a post Tuesday, written shortly after Mendelson announced his intention to use the streetcar fund-
BILL O’LEARY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Mayor Vincent Gray, welcoming the second in a fleet of three electric trolley cars for H Street last year, doesn’t have much support for generous streetcar funding.

ing to pay for a package of tax cuts, Alpert described the move in an even, just-the-facts tone without rendering judgment on whether the change is wise or not. Several council staffers polled Tuesday evening reported receiving few phone calls or emails opposing the streetcar cuts, if any at all. So, what’s different this time? Alpert said he has a level of trust with the council that may not have existed back in 2010. It matters, he said, that outspoken supporters of
the streetcar, including Transportation Committee Chairman Mary Cheh, D-Ward 3, do not believe the cuts threaten the long-term viability of the proposed system. That isn’t to say Alpert is wholly comfortable with the proposed cuts, particularly when he hears Mendelson cite the need to develop a comprehensive plan before moving forward with an expensive new system. “That’s not entirely realistic in terms of the way the government often operates,” Alpert said. “For projects to get done, there’s a little bit of a design-build sort of arrangement where you don’t have every single T crossed and I dotted before you begin. … If there’s not a lot of money available, then [the transportation department] might … simply slow down or say, ‘We don’t have the budget to build it this year or make this progress.’ That would be my fear.” MIKE DEBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

D.C. Council Backs Big Tax Cuts 4.5%
The D.C. Council voted to support the largest set of tax cuts for city residents in 15 years Wednesday, dealing a major blow to Mayor Vincent Gray, who had rejected most of the cuts in favor of greater funding for a future network of streetcars. The cuts would lessen the tax burden for low- and middle-income residents in January. Over four ensuing years, tax relief would reach every business, residents earning up to $1 million annually, and even those who inherit multimillion-dollar estates. A ﬁnal vote to implement the taxcut package will come next month,

but that appeared to be a formality Wednesday, with 11 of 13 council members supporting the plan. The $165 million in tax relief constitutes the bulk of a plan developed over a year and a half by a commission led by former Mayor Anthony Williams. The group’s goal was
to make the tax code in the District, which is beneﬁting from a period of rapid economic growth, more progressive and competitive with neighboring Maryland and Virginia. Williams’ plan appeared stalled in recent months after Gray backed only a handful of the proposals,

mostly those that would have generated new tax revenue for the District. Council member Tommy Wells, D-Ward 6, voted against the budget, saying the cuts to the streetcar program were “too serious” and could prevent the city from creating a system that could help its poorest residents navigate the city affordably. Council member Marion Barry, D-Ward 8, also voted against it, calling Chairman Phil Mendelson a “tyrant” for orchestrating the 11th-hour vote and limiting debate. A ARON C.

First, on April 6, Rheinhardt ran the fastest 10-mile race ever run by a 10-year-old, 1:11:24, in the Cherry Blossom 10-Mile Run. The Association of Road Racing Statisticians keeps track of the fastest time run at every age, from 6 to 85, and has veriﬁed that world record. But Rheinhardt wanted more. So on Sunday, he ran the half-marathon in Alexandria’s Running Festival, and once again he set the world record for a 10-year-old. In his ﬁrst attempt at 13.1 miles, he broke the

Her Voice Lifted a Nation @DrMayaAngelou
Audiences were drawn to Maya Angelou’s passion and perseverance
In 2010 at 82 years old, Maya Angelou began tweeting. At the time of her death, she had amassed nearly 400,000 followers.
“Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.”
“I had a lot of clouds, but I have had so many rainbows in my clouds. #supersoulsunday” — May 19, 2013
“Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: ‘I’m with you kid. Let’s go.’ ” AP FILE PHOTOS
A child of the Jim Crow South, Maya Angelou rose to prominence as a writer of deeply personal stories and a performer instantly identiﬁed by her regal presence and rich, honeyed voice. Angelou — who died Wednesday at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C., at 86 — may be best known for her 1969 book, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” a memoir detailing the racism and abuse she endured during her childhood. But her career touched most artistic mediums. From her desperate early years — in which she was raped as a child, became a single mom at 17 and ran a brothel to earn a living — Angelou gradually moved into nightclub dancing and from there began a career in the arts that spanned more than 60 years. She sang cabaret, danced with Alvin Ailey, acted on Broadway, directed for ﬁlm and television and wrote more than 30 books, including poetry, essays and, responding to the public’s appetite for her life story, six autobiographies. She won three Grammy Awards for spoken-word recordings of her poetry and prose and was invited by President-elect Bill Clinton to read an original poem at his inauguration in 1993, making her the second poet, after Robert Frost, to be so honored. The poem she read, “On the Pulse of Morning,” spoke of a hope that the country’s diverse people would ﬁnd new unity after chapters in U.S. history of oppression and division. “Lift up your eyes upon/ The day breaking for you,” she said as the nation watched. “Give birth again/ To the dream.” It was her story of personal

Reflection on Angelou Presidents, performers and everyday folks expressed their appreciation for Maya Angelou on Wednesday. “The poems and stories she wrote and read to us in her commanding voice were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace. … Now she sings the songs the Creator gave to her when the river ‘and the tree and the stone were one.’ ” — Former President Bill Clinton
Maya Angelou thrived in virtually every artistic medium. At left, she poses in 1971 with her book, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” which established her literary reputation. Above, she is presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2011.
transformation in “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” that launched Angelou’s career and brought her wide recognition as a symbol of strength overcoming struggle. The book focused on growing up in her grandmother’s care in segregated Stamps, Ark., and on her rape by her mother’s boyfriend at age 7. After she spoke her attacker’s name, he was found kicked to death. Con-
vinced that her voice had the power to kill, she fell nearly silent for ﬁve years. She spoke only to her older brother, Bailey. Angelou produced ﬁve subsequent autobiographical volumes. In 1981, Angelou was appointed a lifetime member of the faculty at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. She continued to write, and her works included cookbooks
and children’s books. In her many public speaking obligations, she presented herself as a wise elder whose life was evidence of how far it is possible to travel. “See me now, black, female, American and Southern,” she said in a 1990 speech to students at Centenary College in Louisiana. “See me and see yourselves. What can’t you do?” EMMA BROWN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Caps Coach, GM on Same Page Trotz and MacLellan stress the importance of seeing eye to eye
that any apparent organizational rift will undermine any potential success. “The important point I was trying to make is I think the team feels when there’s a disconnect or there’s not a uniﬁed philosophy from ownership to management to coach,” MacLellan said. “I thought we all have to have a team approach going forward.” Perceived tension between former coach Adam Oates and former GM George McPhee likely played a role in their demise and the team’s struggles. MacLellan emphasized the importance of conferring with Trotz on matters relating to the franchise. “Any moves we’re making, any development calls we’re making, Barry has to be in line with that or we don’t make the call,” MacLellan said. “If I want a guy up, if I want to see him for a little while, evaluate him, Barry’s got to be in line with that. He can’t say, ‘No, I’m not going to play him.’ And I know what Barry wants too. We’re in sync so far.”
The night before his formal introduction as the new coach of the Capitals, Barry Trotz was up until midnight with new general manager Brian MacLellan. The two men, who had met only a week earlier, connected as they exchanged ideas and philosophies Monday night. “We’ve spent a lot of time together in a very short time,” Trotz said Tuesday. “We do have a lot of the same visions in almost every aspect. We’re pretty close. It’s really good right now because we can do something really, hopefully special together.” The shared vision and instantaneous chemistry between Trotz and MacLellan are essential to repositioning the Capitals as a perennial contender after they missed the playoffs this season for the ﬁrst time in seven years. “One of the things I like about

Prosecutors said in court Wednesday that former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez gunned down two men he did not know in their car because one of them bumped into him while dancing at a Boston nightclub, spilling his drink. Hernandez pleaded not guilty at the Suffolk Superior Court hearing to seven charges in the 2012 shooting that killed Daniel de Abreu and Saﬁro Furtado. A third man was wounded. Hernandez’s attorney, Charles Rankin, objected, saying the prosecutor’s account of the shooting was an attempt to poison the jury pool.
BRIAN SNYDER (AP)
Prosecutors say Aaron Hernandez killed two men for spilling his drink.
Clerk Magistrate Gary Wilson dismissed the objection. Prosecutor Patrick Haggan said that in the months leading up to the shooting, Hernandez had become
increasingly convinced that people “had been testing, trying or otherwise disrespecting him when he frequented nightclubs in the area.” Haggan told the court Hernandez and a friend drove from Connecticut to Boston that night to go to a nightclub called Cure. They were standing at the edge of the dance ﬂoor when de Abreu accidentally bumped into Hernandez, smiled at him and did not apologize, according to prosecutors. Haggan said Hernandez drove around until he saw de Abreu and Furtado and their friends going to their car and followed them, pulling up alongside them as they stopped at a red light and opening ﬁre.

Serena Williams had the worst loss in her Grand Slam career Wednesday.
Serena and Venus Fall At French French Open Wind was whipping, rain was falling, and thick gray clouds overhead were foreboding as Serena Williams double-faulted, then raised her hands in despair and wailed, “I can’t serve!” Truth is, the French Open’s defending champion couldn’t do much properly on this particular afternoon, absorbing the most lopsided loss of her 288-match Grand Slam career. Unable to ﬁgure out how to get herself going or counter her unheralded opponent’s aggressive game, the No. 1-ranked Williams was beaten 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday by 35th-ranked Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the second round. “Nothing really worked,” said Williams, whose older sister Venus also lost. “I don’t know anything that actually worked.” Exactly one minute before Serena’s match began, the 29th-seeded Venus’ 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 defeat against 56th-ranked Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia wrapped up in the main stadium.

Bucs Owner Glazer Dies NFL Malcolm Glazer, the self-made billionaire who owned English soccer’s Manchester United and the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, died Wednesday. He was 85. The reclusive Palm Beach, Fla., businessman had been in failing health since April 2006 when a pair of strokes left him with impaired speech and limited mobility in his right arm and leg. Glazer raised his proﬁle in 2005 with a $1.47 billion takeover of Manchester United that was bitterly opposed by fans of one of the world’s richest soccer clubs. Before that, his unobtrusive management style helped transform the Bucs from a laughingstock into a model franchise that in 2003 won the Super Bowl. FRED GOODALL (AP)
4 Players To Watch At OTAs The Redskins on Tuesday kicked off the next phase of their offseason program, holding the first of 10 practice sessions known as Organized Team Activities (OTAs). Today’s session marks the first time reporters will get a look at the full squad. Here are the four most interesting players to keep an eye on during OTAs. MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Nats need slugger to stay hot and help offense out of slump
May Struggles Adam LaRoche is the only Nats player with more than 20 at-bats in May who is hitting over .300.
Player Adam LaRoche Jayson Werth Denard Span Ian Desmond Tyler Moore Wilson Ramos Zach Walters Nate McLouth Anthony Rendon Jose Lobaton Danny Espinosa
Adam LaRoche has a reputation for being a slow starter, but that may change after the first two months of 2014. And the power-hitting first baseman, who came back from a quadriceps injury this week, hopes to be the much-needed middle of the lineup bat to spark the Nationals’ slumping offense. LaRoche entered Wednesday’s game with a .314 batting average, 23 RBIs and six home runs in 2014. While on the 15-day disabled list, LaRoche worked in the batting cages to keep his rhythm. “I was able to hit throughout this thing,” said LaRoche, who crushed a two-run homer Monday — his second game back. The quadriceps is closer to 100 percent, which is good news for a Nationals team that has struggled with Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper on the DL. “You lose that power and having the threat of the big hitters com-

only twice (2012, 2010). His .314 average, if it holds in May’s ﬁnal days, would be a careerbest in the ﬁrst two months of a season. LaRoche could use help around him if Washington is going to keep pace in the NL East. The Nationals entered Wednesday three games back of the division-leading Braves. “It’s a question of getting that big hit when we need it,” manager Matt Williams said. “It hasn’t happened yet for the most part.”
ing up in those situations,” leadoff hitter Denard Span said. Prior to Wednesday, Washington scored more than three runs only three times in its past 10 games — going 3-7 in that span. The Nationals have fallen to 21st
in team batting average (.243) and 22nd in runs scored (198). LaRoche’s production this early in the season is a bit surprising, given his history. In his previous 10 seasons, LaRoche ended May with a batting average above .250
1. Robert Griffin III
2. DeSean Jackson
3. Jason Hatcher
4. Phillip Thomas
Jay Gruden’s No. 1 priority: Fix the prized quarterback. The coach and offensive coordinator Sean McVay will custom tailor the offense to Griffin’s strengths, but for now, they will do a lot of experimenting. Griffin has spent the offseason trying to correct the bad habits that he developed as he played through his recovery. Gruden and McVay will help him continue to do this.
We’ll get a sneak peek at what Gruden and McVay have planned for the multitalented pass catcher. The speedy former Eagles receiver will definitely help stretch the field. But he’s able to make plays in a variety of ways. He and Griffin have gotten in some work over the past couple of months. But they still have a lot of work to do as they try to learn each other and develop their chemistry.
The Redskins have high expectations for the big defensive end. But Jim Haslett first must figure out how he wants to use him. Haslett uses a lot of different fronts, and so Hatcher likely will not have one set spot along the line. Initially, the ex-Cowboy could start out at right end in the base 3-4 front. But we’ll see what the early going looks like and how extensive the Haslett-Hatcher experimentation is at this point.
The Redskins passed on the chance to draft another safety because of the optimism surrounding Thomas — a college all-American and 2012 fourth-round pick, who missed all of his rookie season with a Lisfranc injury. For now, Brandon Meriweather and Ryan Clark hold the starting strong and free safety jobs, respectively. Thomas could possibly be a longterm answer at strong safety.

Dante Schwebel, left, Patrick Hallahan, center, and Adrian Quesada join forces to make Spanish Gold.
Striking Spanish Gold Rather than go solo, Dante Schwebel got a new band together Music Spanish Gold singer-guitarist Dante Schwebel is afraid of being alone. After amicably parting ways with longtime band Hacienda early in 2013, Schwebel had no one to play with. He considered a solo career, but quickly abandoned the idea. “I’ve only ever been in bands so that was scary to me,” Schwebel says. “I kept thinking, if I made a solo record, I don’t think I would buy it. It wasn’t exciting to me at all. I’m just this dude.” Luckily, Schwebel, 33, has plenty of musically inclined friends. Dallas Green, the leader of alt-

folk band City and Colour, which Hacienda toured with in 2011, quickly recruited Schwebel to be his new guitarist. There was just one catch: Rehearsals started in a week and the first shows were in arenas supporting P!nk. “It was a weird couple of weeks,” Schwebel says. While on the road with City and Colour, Schwebel contemplated his next move. He had a batch of demos that were about growing up in Laredo, Texas, so he reached out to a for mer high school classmate he only vaguely knew, Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada. Then, Schwebel called up My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan, whom he played with on Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach’s 2009 solo tour. “I said, ‘Look, you guys haven’t
met each other. Let’s book the studio and if you get along, we’ll take the next step and record more songs,’ ” Schwebel says. “In three
“I kept thinking, if I made a solo record, I don’t think I would buy it. It wasn’t exciting to me at all. I’m just this dude.” days we had half a record.” The trio dubbed themselves Spanish Gold and quickly finished their debut album, “South of Nowhere,” which dropped Tuesday. There’s a swagger to Spanish Gold’s high-energy rock, a natural evolution from Schwebel’s funkier contributions to Hacienda’s last
album, the bluesy “Shakedown.” Lead single “Out on the Street” might as well be an homage to Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.” Spanish Gold’s f irst major tour stops in D.C. on Sunday and Schwebel is well aware that the band could have a short shelf life, given Hallahan’s prior commitments. But he’s not worried. “I think it makes it more special,” he says. “It adds a premium to some of the shows.” Plus, he’s got another job that will keep him busy playing gigs throughout the year. “If it wasn’t for City and Colour, I probably couldn’t afford to go do a full record campaign,” Schwebel says. “Having a steady work gig has really given me some freedom.” It sure beats being alone.

The mother superior insists Anna first visit her only living relative, an aunt, who reveals that Anna’s real name is Ida and that her parents were killed in the Holocaust. The two women go on a search to find any remains of Ida’s parents and give them a proper burial. The film — reminiscent of Carl Dreyer’s 1928 silent masterpiece “The Passion of Joan of Arc” in a number of ways — is beautifully shot and hauntingly acted. Quiet but powerful, “Ida” leaves a lasting impact. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

1 The Mad Hatter With one hat to rule them all, the most bonkers tea party host ever livens up Disney’s 1951 film “Alice in Wonderland,” then returns as Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s 2010 version which, despite being live action, dropped dead on the screen.
2 Indiana Jones Add a fedora to any man and he becomes classy. Add a fedora to Harrison Ford and … um … what were we saying?
3 Loki Tom Hiddleston rocks the god of mischief’s signature two-pronged gold hat in three films: “Thor” in 2011, “The Avengers” in 2012 and “Thor: The Dark World” in 2013. It takes a real man to pull off a cap you have to polish.
4 The Sorting Hat So much depends on a hat with a brain of its own. Making his debut in 2001 in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” this bonnet impacts Hogwarts students like a magical SAT.
5 Oddjob “Goldfinger” brought a lot of cool things to 1964: An essentially naked, gold-painted Bond girl, a kickass theme song, and Oddjob, a henchman with a razor-lined hat capable of decapitation. It also makes julienne fries.

UNDATED RENDERING OF MALL FACADE OF MUSEUM OF HISTORY AND TECHNOLOGY When the Museum of History and Technology enTo complement neoclassical buildings already tered the design stage, one thing was for sure: It had on the Mall, architect Walker O. Cain blended old to be modern. and new. The recesses along the facade are ab“It was making a symbolic statement for stract versions of columns, for example. Washington, D.C., and the nation,” Molella says. Cain’s rendering shows how the building would “We’re a modern nation, we’re coming of age, look alongside the National Museum of Natural Hiswe’re competing with Russia, we’re tops.” tory, with the U.S. Capitol in the distance.

FOUCAULT PENDULUM IN MOTION The museum’s three-story-high Foucault pendulum was a visitor favorite until its removal in 1998. “At the Natural History museum you say, ‘Let’s meet at the elephant.’ Well, people always said, ‘Let’s meet at the pendulum,’ ” Molella says. In this setup, the pendulum appears to be slowly shifting its direction. As the day progresses, the bob knocks down pegs arranged in a circle below it. (In the photo above, the bob is a blur of motion.) But the pendulum isn’t changing its path. What moves is the earth beneath. The pendulum’s 250-pound bob has emerged from retirement for the museum’s 50th anniversary.
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY
1 EPISODE & DRINK SPECIALS
From its opening in 1964, to 1980, it was the Museum of History and Technology. The name “was recognition that America rests on the foundations of innovative technology,” says Molella, co-curator of “Making a Modern Museum,” an exhibit celebrating the institution’s 50th anniversary. We talked to Molella about some of the items in the show, and what “modern” meant in mid-century America. BETH MARLOWE (EXPRESS)
THE SMITHSONIAN’S NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY
Fifty years ago, Smithsonian museums didn’t have quite the “wow!” factor they do today. Artifacts were displayed “willy-nilly,” says Arthur Molella, director of the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. “A curator would type on a card and put it by the object,” and that was that. The National Museum of American History, a museum as forward-looking as America itself, set the stage for widespread change.
VAN DE GRAAFF PARTICLE ACCELERATOR This bulbous specimen, from the early 1930s, was part of a 1977 exhibit called “Atom Smashers.” Accelerators speed up subatomic particles; put another particle in the way and a hit breaks it into even smaller particles. The Van de Graaff model, about 30 feet tall, “represented scientific progress: big science, a great big instrument, expensive, and people were dwarfed by it,” Molella says. The real thing’s in storage, but this photo is on view.
MODERNIZED GOWNS OF THE FIRST LADIES EXHIBITION The first exhibit installed in the Museum of History and Technology is still its star: the first ladies’ gowns. When the collection crossed the Mall from the Smithsonian’s Arts and Industries Building, it was already an example of cutting-edge exhibit design. Curators in the 1950s, inspired by trade shows and worlds’ fairs, put the gowns on lifelike mannequins and arranged them in a dramatic setting. (This photo, on view in “Making a Modern Museum,” shows the gallery after its modernization.) In embracing this contemporary look, “the museum was putting a flag in the ground that we’re going to be modernizing,” Molella says. The first ladies gallery set a high bar: Visitors should be wowed. “We were leading the way,” Molella says.

Michael Cunningham In Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham’s novels, nothing — no mundane action or feeling or unspoken thought — is meaningless. Or, if it is, perhaps that means something, too. Cunningham’s new novel, “The Snow Queen,” which he’ll discuss Tuesday at Politics and Prose, joins a collection of work that imbues the quiet moments of his characters’ lives with existential questioning. A strange light in the sky might be a hallucination — or it might be a portent of wonderful or terrible things to come. Baking a birthday cake might just be a chore, but it might also represent the suffocating pull of normality on a creative soul. The rattle of a sewing machine might be mere mechanics, but it might be a siren song from an otherworldly purgatory. In each of the novels below, Cunningham weaves an ode to the immortal city of New York and its artistic souls and lost citizens. His books remind us that the mythologies we imagine about our lives stem from seemingly ordinary moments and seemingly ordinary people. ALLIE GHAMAN (E XPRES S) Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW; Tue., 7 p.m., free; 202-364-1919, politics-prose.com. (Van Ness)
‘The Snow Queen’ (2014)
‘Specimen Days’ (2005)
Barrett Meeks sees a light in the sky above Central Park. And it sees him in return. And it’s gone. How does one move forward from a brush with the divine? How does a regular person — like intelligent but indolent Barrett, like his floundering musician and addict brother Tyler — find meaning in a possibly uncaring universe? With elegant prose that peeks into the most private thoughts of his characters, Cunningham challenges the reader to imagine a pervasive, indifferent god — if any god even exists. Barrett, Tyler and their fellow New York underachiever friends struggle to blend their hopes for love, for artistic brilliance, for vindication, with reality. But even if they can reach their goals, would their lives matter? As Tyler reflects about Barrett’s experience: “Heaven winked at you, right? Maybe. Maybe it did. Or maybe it was just an airplane and a cloud. But if Heaven winks at anybody, it’s probably the less-than conspicuous seekers … The universe only winks at the ones no one will believe.”
Verses from Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Glass” flow through this novel, inspiring the artistic and the mad, those on the verge of divine ecstasy. The reader follows three sets of characters — each has a Simon, a Lucas and a Catherine — over 300 years in New York. An impoverished Irish boy, forced into manual labor, dreams of a world of stars and untamed nature. A modern-day police psychologist tries to prevent child terrorists from attacking New Yorkers at random. A simulated human in the future searches for the reason behind his manufacturing. Appearances of Whitman’s words (and the poet himself) throughout the centuries impress on the reader the cyclical nature of time, that even the small struggles and triumphs of individuals are part of a human history. As several of Cunningham’s characters remind us, quoting from Whitman, “The smallest sprout shows that there’s really no death.”
‘The Hours’ (1998) This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel moves between three women of different eras, linked by their fascination with Virginia Woolf’s “Mrs. Dalloway”: contemporary Clarissa, throwing a party for her dying, poetic ex-lover; book-loving Laura Brown, struggling with depression in 1950s Southern California; and suburb-trapped Woolf herself, who longs for the vitality of London, no matter the cost to her tenuous mental health. The women work to define their identities, wrestling with the gaps between their outward displays and their true selves. They question whether a comfortable life and selffulfillment can coexist. As Woolf feigns sanity, Laura feigns domestic bliss and Clarissa pivots between satisfaction with her life and the allure of missed opportunities, the reader can’t help but reflect on the minute choices and simple moments that form a life path. Cunningham’s esteem for Woolf burns in every passage. His contemplation of “Mrs. Dalloway” elucidates that work as he composes a powerful narrative of his own.

Off the Top of His Head Reggie Watts adds his brand of spontaneous humor to New Belgium’s wacky bike and beer party Tour de Fat Whenever Reggie Watts has an idea for a short ﬁlm, there’s a high likelihood we’ll get to see it. As a co-creator of YouTube channel JASH, the musician/ comedian has carte blanche (and a modest budget) to create anything he wants, whether that’s making a music video in a single day or portraying a “Welcome Back, Kotter”-inspired teacher. “It’s an opportunity to do whatever ideas I have in my head,” Watts says. “I just go for it and they’re down. That’s rare.” It’s the kind of freedom Watts, 42, looks for in his projects — including his role as bandleader on IFC’s surreal talk show “Comedy Bang! Bang!” (10:30 p.m., Thu.) — and practices in his improvised live shows. Go to see Watts perform Saturday in D.C. at Yards Park during New Belgium Brewing Company’s free Tour de Fat festival and you’ll get to hear him write jokes and compose songs just as he thinks of them. Or you could just read this. Hey Reggie, what are you up to today?
Reggie Watts stars as the one-manbandleader on IFC’s mock talk show “Comedy Bang! Bang!”
with my friends. It’s a mini-carnival type of thing.
Hmm … just existing, I guess. They treat me very well. They’re good people. It’s for awareness for, like, riding bicycles.
There’s some time travel that happens, which is great. There’s also a murder mystery, there’s a black-andwhite episode. There are some really dumb commercials that we made.
That’s a funny thing to raise awareness for.
Are you involved with the creative process or are you just reading lines?
Once in a while, I’ll have a quick idea that I’ll tell [host] Scott [Aukerman] about and they might use it. If I wanted to [write] I probably could, but I’m a little too lazy. You’re performing in D.C. during New Belgium’s Tour de Fat. What do you know about the festival?
I’ve done a few of them. They’re really, really cool. It’s basically a festival filled with [people like] my friends from [my hometown of] Missoula, Mont. Everyone in Missoula loves drinking beer, or making their own beer, and riding bikes all the time and listening to cool, weird music. So it’s basically just hanging out
Yeah. I actually don’t drink beer but I enjoy that people enjoy it because it’s a thing that people get super connoisseur-y about. Do you ride bikes?
I do. Not as much as I want to because I travel so much, but I do. So you can enjoy the bike aspect.
I can enjoy people drinking beer and looking very refreshed. Is it harder for your act — a mix of jokes and music — to come across in a festival setting, since you’re making things up on the spot?
No, not really. It’s pretty mellow, you know. People are in a good mood and it’s usually in the afternoon. I get up and people seem ready to do things. All the stuff they have up there is pretty weird. There’s this guy that goes by the moniker
CHRIS RAGAZZO (IFC)
You wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t fun. “Comedy Bang! Bang!” is now in Season 3. Can you tease some out-of-context things that happen this cycle?
“Getting lost in [improvisation] means you’re in the zone, so it’s just allowing whatever’s happening to happen. That’s encouraging because you go, Oh, chaos is on my side.”
Ssssnake, he does these really weird acts. He’ll pair up with this strange band of bicycle-inspired dudes and do these weird cover songs. It’s a bunch of weirdness, so everyone’s tuned into that already. So by the time you get onstage, you don’t even seem that weird.
No, not at that point. Do you ever freeze up onstage, or lose track of where you’re going and get lost in an improv?
I might but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Getting lost in some-
thing means you’re in the zone, so it’s just allowing whatever’s happening to happen. That’s encouraging because you go, Oh, chaos is on my side. You play a teacher in your Web series “TEACH.” Did you ever want to be one?
I don’t think I ever wanted to be an actual teacher, just because they seem to have to do a lot of work, and they have to actually show up on time. But just being able to pop in and be a teacher for a moment, that’s only fun.

For the past 15 years, Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing Company has been combining its passion for beer and bikes to produce Tour de Fat, a traveling carnival featuring wacky, vaudevillian performances, a costumed bike ride and plenty of brews. The free daytime festival, which on Saturday makes its third stop in D.C. at Yards Park, is meant to raise awareness for bike advocacy. Last year 4,500 people came out for the event in D.C., and tour manager Paul Gruber says he expects 6,000 this year. Tour de Fat will also feature a number of New Belgium concoctions available for $5 each (the proceeds of which benefit local bicycle nonprofits). The brewery’s flagship beers — such as Fat Tire and Ranger — will be available at three beer stations, but beer geeks should head straight to a fourth area, the Lips of Faith Lounge, where the brewery will tap a new keg of some of its more experimental offerings each hour. Here’s the schedule and a rundown of what’s on tap: NOON: La Folie, a wood-aged sour brown ale; 8.5 percent imperial IPA Rampant, and Gruit, an ale brewed with ancient ingredients like hore-

Yeah. I was like, What is happening now? I was in a restaurant eating a wrap down the street from Woolly Mammoth. I immediately went, Oh s---, there was an earthquake or something. I went outside and everyone was disoriented and looking weird. There were some tiles from buildings that had fallen on the sidewalks. I’m glad no one got hit by one of those. You wouldn’t expect to come to D.C. and end up in an earthquake.

I guess I do. I’m an earthquakeattractor. I’d say the other thing I get excited about that’s great about D.C. is that Ian MacKaye usually will give me a tour of his favorite places in the city and I get to stop by the Fugazi house. Where does he take you?
He took me to his favorite sandwich shop. I love that he’s a spendthrift, so everything is super as cheap as he can get it. It’s just a very cost-effective way of living. He’s a legend.

No. Stuff’s nasty.
What if it was prepared by a notable chef?

Congrats! You just earned your Foodie Badge. Keep going.

If you enlisted private chef Danny Boylen to cater a five-course dinner party for 12, your meal would come with a $2,000 price tag. With his new communal supper concept, the same award-winning eats are available for $125 per person, plus a one-time $50 membership fee to the D.C. Preservation League. Though uni isn’t guaranteed at the BYOB dinner, Boylen has been known to mix high-concept ingredients with unconventional preparations (bayou shrimp lollipops, a pork antojito bar). Even cooler: Every month, the venue rotates (it’s typically an underutilized warehouse). Catch the next group at the Wonder Bread Factory (641 S St. NW). Next meal: Sunday
This monthly, family-style supper club ($50, $65 with alcohol) is the safest and least pretentious option of the group, partially because chef Kera Carpenter has only a panini press and plug-in convection oven with which to cook. Despite her limited resources, Carpenter (who also owns Domku Bar & Cafe in Petworth) whips up gourmet dishes with a French influence, like scallop carpaccio, pork tenderloin with a cherry sauce and roasted mushrooms with smashed new potatoes. The table seats 12, plus the chef, and mingling is encouraged. “Once everything is set on the table, I sit down,” Carpenter says. “I like a good meal, too.” Next meal: June 15
Dinner Lab can’t promise you a cheap meal (membership is $175 a year, and events average $70 each), or even a meal, for that matter (they tend to sell out quickly). But if you do manage to snag one of the 120 seats available for each event, you’re guaranteed to enjoy your ride on the culinary carousel. The New Orleans-based company taps upand-coming chefs from around the country to prepare multi-course dinners at secret locations. (Past suppers have included a Polynesian luau at LongView Gallery and a crawfish boil at a graffiti-covered church.) Booze is included, and you’re allowed up to three guests (who also pay $70). Next meal: June 6
The only one in the bunch that allows you to curate the guest list, Rose’s Luxury’s dinner experience is a special occasion-maker. Eight to 10 guests have run of the private rooftop garden from 6:30 p.m. till closing time. Booze, tax and tip are not included in the $125-perperson price tag, but you’ll be treated to unlimited waves of off-menu dishes until you cry “Uncle!” Previous dinners involved Tuscan seafood stew and whole racks of ribs, though what’s next is anyone’s guess.

Nytimes.com ran four essays on “The Bachelorette” (8 p.m. Mondays on ABC): “paternalistic fairy-tale” or “inspiring a new generation of professional women?” A cousin of current bachelorette (and lawyer) Andi Dorfman, writes that Andi is a “new breed” of career woman who says of love: “I don’t need it, but I want it enough to go get it.” Enough to quit her By Marc job to be on the show! Silver Then there’s “I Wanna Marry Harry” (9 p.m. Tuesdays on Fox). Twelve U.S. gals are led to believe they’re vying for England’s prince. Spoiler alert: He’s a lookalike (see above). Critics slam the show’s fraudiness. Let’s be honest: TV dating is all about deception. Andi pretends her 25 suitors are all husband material, even the guy who STOLE A LAMP FROM HIS HOTEL ROOM TO GIVE HER AS A GIFT. She’s looking for the “total package” but admires the “packages” when the guys must strip on a group date. Yet she humorlessly chides bachelors who misbehave: “The fact that people think this is a joke is so offensive to me.” At least Phony Harry is in on the joke: In his contract, he asked to keep his Fake Prince duds.

It’s a Fake Date!
Not the Mariah We Know The pop star seems to have lost herself on her latest album, ‘Me. I Am Mariah’ Album Review Mariah Carey’s latest album kicks off in wonderful and typical Mariah form: She sings a song that immediately pulls you in, which has ranged from a killer club jam to a searing slow song in the past. “Cry,” a torching, emotional tune, is the song that does its job on “Me.
I Am Mariah ... The Elusive Chanteuse.” You feel like you are about to experience musical bliss, and most of the time Carey has been able to hit it out of the park. But like many veteran all-stars, there comes a time when singers make more errors and can’t score a hit like they used to. Sadly, that is what is happening with Carey. The batch of tracks on her 14th studio record are enjoyable, but they don’t have the pizazz and spark of her past albums, including 2009’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,” her worst-selling album,
Mariah Carey loses some of her spark on “Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse.”
but one of that year’s best works. “Elusive Chanteuse” borrows from Carey’s earlier work — and while the powerful singer still has the vocal chops, her songs find her looking too much to the past. The downtempo ballad “You’re Mine (Eternal)” is “We Belong Together” 2.0, while the bouncy “Thirsty” sounds like it was recorded a decade ago. And tracks like the Q-Tip-produced dance number “Meteorite,” “You Don’t Know What to Do” and “Make It Look Good” are album-ﬁllers that don’t help the project stay on track.
Carey has been recording the album since 2011, and she’s struggled with its singles, from “You’re Mine” to “The Art of Letting Go” to “#Beautiful,” a mellow outtake featuring Miguel that was peaked in the Top 20 a year ago. Throughout the struggle, she called megaproducer Jermaine Dupri to come onboard to shape the album. The magical duo, who have collaborated on hits such as “Always Be My Baby” and “We Belong Together,” haven’t completely lost their charm, but the thrill is somewhat gone. MESFIN FEK ADU (AP)

Revenge of the Nerds
“All the girls are doing the big productions, Shakira, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga — it seems like all the girls decided to do it big these days.”
Wil Wheaton puts geekdom at the heart of his new Syfy show Television
As I understand it, the show is sort of a weekly television love letter to nerd culture.
I think that’s a fair assessment. It’s also just sort of taking all of the things that I love and all of the things that I do in relation to the things that I love and putting it into a television format that people understand and know what to expect from. Somebody said to me it’s sort of like everything I do on the Internet converted to television, which I think is pretty accurate. I have said that being a nerd is not about being what you love, it’s about the way that you love it. And the way that we love the subtexts and the programs that we are going to be covering on “The Wil Wheaton Project” is exactly what you’ll be seeing come out of me on the show. We highlight the things we think are awesome, and then we tease and make fun of the absurdities, as well. You’ve been very vocal on the NSA. Are we going to see you tackle those sort of issues, as well?
I don’t think so. The purpose of the show is to entertain and to make what is popularly known as nerd culture accessible to anyone that cares to pay attention to it. I’m hoping to have a half an hour every week where people who like
— A LICE COOPER, TELLING THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THAT MODERN FEMALE ARTISTS HAVE TAKEN UP THE MANTLE OF SHOCK ROCKERS LIKE HIMSELF
Wil Wheaton has been entertaining geeks since his teenage years as Wesley Crusher on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” More recently, he’s appeared as a fictional version of himself on “The Big Bang Theory” and on his board game Web show, “TableTop.” His latest endeavor is “The Wil Wheaton Project” — a weekly program highlighting nerd culture that premiered Tuesday on Syfy.
Wil Wheaton, left, was joined by friend Chris Hardwick on the premiere of his show.
“I’m hoping that people who already love sci-ﬁ fantasy and the supernatural shows will come on board.” the same things as I like will join me to look back at the really great stuff that happened in comic books and sci-fi fantasy and a lot of the things that we watch on television — maybe try to highlight some of the lesser-known things that exist on the fringes of nerd culture that I think are really awesome and maybe aren’t getting through on television. It really does seem that in your career you’ve become a bit of an icon or ambassador for more traditional nerd topics — be it from your roles on “Star Trek” to “The Big Bang Theory” ...
I know that I’m a little bit of a spokesman for those things, and I know that I have a little bit of a high profile in that world. And because I’m aware of that, I’m grateful for it. And it’s a privilege to have that voice, and it is important to me to respect it, not take it for granted. And every now and then when people want to hear me talk, it’s impor-
tant that I have something to say. I just want to say really quickly that I really love “TableTop.”
I’m glad you like it. … My ulterior motive for “TableTop” was to make more gamers — and by all accounts that mission has been a very big success. I’m hoping to do something similar with “The Wil Wheaton Project.” I’m hoping that people who already love sci-ﬁ fantasy and the supernatural shows will come on board and enjoy what we’re talking about. I’m also hopeful that they will be able to share this speculative ﬁction entertainment with their partners who maybe aren’t already into it in the same way that people who are gamers shared “TableTop” with their friends and families and partners who are not gamers. Is there anything else you really want to say — about the show, or any of your other projects?
I’m really excited about this show to finally be on the air so it can be judged on its own merits and I won’t have to talk about it anymore. … I have to just stay focused on what is important and what I can actually have an effect on, which is making the best show that I can make and having the most fun that I can.
