Ants Get Back at Woman for Switching to Sugarless Diet A 75-year-old woman in Offenburg, Germany, called police at 3 a.m. Wednesday complaining that she couldn’t sleep because her doorbell was always ringing. Police said ants had built such a big nest next to the doorbell that it pressed the switching elements together, making the bell ring constantly. (AP) DECISIONS

Childhood Nickname ‘No. 2’ Finally Makes Sense to Man German doctors say a man spent 15 years with a pencil in his head following a childhood accident. Aachen University Hospital said Wednesday that the 24-yearold man sought help in 2011 after years of headaches, constant colds and worsening vision in one eye. A scan showed that a 4-inch pencil was lodged from his sinus to his pharynx. The man said he didn’t know how the pencil got there but that he once had a bad fall as a child. (AP)

Halting Hospital Germs Atlanta Infections in U.S. hospitals kill tens of thousands of people each year, and many institutions fight back by screening new patients to see whether they carry a dangerous germ, and isolating those who do. But a big study suggests a far more effective approach: Decontaminating every patient in intensive care. Washing everyone with antiseptic wipes and giving them antibiotic nose ointment reduced bloodstream infections dramatically in the study at more than 40 U.S. hospitals. The practice could prove controversial, because it would involve uninfected patients, and experts say it could lead to germs becoming more resistant to antibiotics. The study, which was published online Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that 54 patients would need to be decontaminated to prevent one
Marines: Human Error to Blame for Fatal Accident
Battling MRSA The germ study focused on MRSA, which can live on the skin or in the nose without causing symptoms but can be life-threatening when it reaches the bloodstream or vital organs. It is especially dangerous because it is resistant to many antibiotics. About a decade ago, hospital-linked MRSA infections sickened more than 90,000 people nationwide each year, leading to roughly 20,000 deaths. As hospitals improved cleanliness, those numbers dropped by about a third, with fewer than 10,000 deaths in 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (AP)

bloodstream infection. Nevertheless, the ﬁndings are “very dramatic” and will lead to changes in practice and probably ne w law s, sa id Dr. W i l l ia m Schaffner, a Vanderbilt University infectious-disease specialist who was not involved in the research. The decontamination method worked like this: For up to ﬁve days, 26,000 ICU patients got a nose swab twice a day with bacteria-ﬁghting ointment, plus oncedaily bathing with antiseptic wipes. Afterward, they were more than 40 percent less likely to get a bloodstream infection of any type than
patients who had been screened and isolated for a dangerous germ called MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. In the year before the experiment began, there were 950 bloodstream infections in intensive care patients at the hospitals studied. The results suggest that more than 400 of those could have been prevented using the new method. “It is a very important ﬁnding. It advances our understanding of how best to control infections caused by MRSA” and other germs, said the CDC’s Dr. John Jernigan.
Police: Letters to NYC Mayor Contained Ricin Two letters sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg in New York and his nonprofit in Washington contained traces of the deadly poison ricin, police said Wednesday.

Bachmann Not Seeking 5th Term St. Paul, Minn. Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman whose sharply conservative views on social and fiscal issues elevated her to a leader of the tea-party movement, announced Wednesday she will not seek a fifth term but insisted the decision was unrelated to ethics inquiries or her near-loss last fall. It was a sudden turn for the foster-mom-turned-politician. In a lengthy video message to supporters, Bachmann said her decision “was not inﬂuenced by any concerns about my being re-elected.” She also said her decision was not affected “by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign” last year. In January, a former Bachmann aide ﬁled a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, claim-
Seattle The Army staff sergeant charged with slaughtering 16 villagers during one of the worst atrocities of the Afghanistan war has agreed to plead guilty in a deal to avoid the death penalty, his attorney said Wednesday.

A sentencing-phase trial set for September will determine whether he is sentenced to life in

Browne previously indicated that Bales remembered little from the 2012 massacre, but he said the soldier will give a full account of what happened before the judge decides whether to accept the plea. Bales was serving his fourth tour in a combat zone, and the allegations against him raised questions about the toll multiple deployments were taking on American troops. For that reason, many legal experts believed that it was unlikely he would receive the death penalty, as Army prosecutors were seeking. (AP)

China on Wednesday again denied that it has used cyberattacks to steal American military and business secrets, following new accusations leveled this week. “China opposes all forms of cyberattacks. China is also a victim of hacking,” said Assistant Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang during a press brieﬁng previewing Chinese President Xi Jinping’s meeting with President Barack Obama next week. Zheng noted that China and the United States have agreed
to set up a working group to regularly discuss the issue. The W hite House has said Obama will raise the issue at next week’s meeting, but Chinese ofﬁcials responded to questions about it Wednesday with the same talking points they have long used on the subject. The increased scrutiny on China’s cyberactivities comes amid mounting evidence of cyberintrusions and the theft of proprietary private and government data in the United States. On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported on a conﬁdential report prepared for the Pentagon that revealed that cyberintrusions had breached more than two dozen major U.S. weapons systems.

The Targets Among more than two dozen major weapons systems whose designs were breached were programs critical to U.S. defenses and combat aircraft and ships, including the V-22 Osprey, the Black Hawk helicopter and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. (T WP)
After years of using circumspect language on the subject, often avoiding publicly singling out China by name, the Obama administration has recently escalated its warnings to the country. Zheng on Wednesday described the upcoming meeting — the ﬁrst between the countries’ leaders since Xi’s elevation to the presidency and Obama’s re-election— as a chance for the two major powers to set up “a new model of ChinaU.S. relations.” Z heng sa id t he count r ies must “wa lk a new pat h t hat is d i f ferent f rom t rad it ional superpower confrontations, a new pat h under which big powers can live in harmony.” WILLIAM WAN ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Syria’s foreign minister laid out a hard line Wednesday, insisting that Bashar Assad will remain Syria’s president at least until elections in 2014 and might run again, terms that will make it difficult for Syria’s opposition to agree to U.N.sponsored talks on ending Syria’s civil war. “From now until the next elections, President Bashar Assad is president of the Syrian Arab Republic,” Foreign Minister Walid alMoallem said in an interview with the Lebanese TV station Al-Mayadeen. “Will Assad run in 2014 or not? This depends on the circumstances in 2014 and on the popular will.” The opposition has demanded that Assad’s departure from power top the agenda of any talks. (AP)

Help Metro Keep You Safe in Emergencies
Now Arriving on a Kiosk Screen at Your Station
A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles They are events that are, by their very nature, unpredictable: a suspicious package appears, there’s a guy on the track who shouldn’t be there, a train has a mechanical problem. Emergencies come out of nowhere and can threaten us with everything from delays to serious injury. Your chances of encountering an emergency on any given day are remote, but do you know how you would react? Do you know your role as a passenger-member of Metro’s safety response team?
We’ve added this information about weekend schedules that complements our track work messages to help you plan your travel. In addition to giving you news about buses replacing trains and single tracking while we work to rebuild the system, Metro is providing new screen displays that show you how often trains are running on your line. We welcome your comments at wmata.com/contactus or follow us on Twitter on @wmata.
Every team must have a quarterback, and in emergencies, that quarterback is the train operator who is in constant contact with the professionals who manage each emergency at the Operations Control Center. More visible during a situation are Metro team members in uniform, likely with bright yellow safety vests. Supervisors, police and ﬁreﬁghters will guide you to safety. Follow their directions; they’ve done this before. The track bed may seem like the quickest way out in an emergency, but it can actually make the situation worse for you and your fellow travelers. Metro trains are powered by an electriﬁed third rail, and the electric current can kill you. Even when your train is stopped, others may be moving. Listen for instructions and when in doubt, stay on the train. If you need information or help, call the train operator. That’s why we put intercoms at the end of each car. Push and release the call button once; the operator will answer. No need to push the button to talk. Once an emergency is contained, Metro gets right back to its mission of getting you where you need to be on time. But this is also a situation where you can contribute by devising your own alternate routes to home and work.
Ride Safe Did you know that slips trips and falls are the most common passenger injuries on Metro? This summer you will see new posters in stations, on trains and in buses with messages urging customers to avoid behaviors that can end in injuries. Stay safe by avoiding these common mistakes: •
Holding bus or rail car doors open or placing body parts or objects in doors as they are closing
Walking or running around the front of a bus
Standing, walking or running too close to the edge of a rail station platform
We do everything we can to head off emergencies, but sometimes they can’t be avoided. Our efforts are enhanced by your participation. Join us.
Failing to prepare for acceleration or braking while riding on bus or rail
Becoming distracted while walking (don’t text and walk!)
To learn more about emergency preparedness on Metro, visit: wmata.com/emergencyprep.
Running to catch a train, particularly on escalators
Please consider whether saving a few seconds on your trip is worth the risk of an injury. Ride safe.

Complicated repairs to downtown pit are expected to cost $2M Washington The sinkhole in downtown Washington will continue to block lanes and impede trafﬁc until the end of the workweek, officials said Tuesday. Authorities shut down parts of 14th and F streets in Northwest Washington last week after a pit opened at the intersection, which is blocks from the White House in an area full of restaurants and hotels. The work is taking so long
because workers digging down to the sewer line have to navigate a complex thicket of utility lines and old trolley tracks, said George Hawkins, general manager of the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority. “It’s been the most complicated street repair I’ve seen since I’ve been on the job,” Hawkins said at a news conference in front of the sinkhole. Work at the pit is expected to cost nearly $2 million, he said. All of the repairs should be completed and the roads reopened by Friday, said Paul Quander Jr., the deputy mayor for public safety. Northbound 14th Street remains
Sinkhole May Be Filled by Friday
Spectators photograph the sinkhole at 14th and F streets NW last week.
blocked between Pennsylvania and New York avenues, while F Street is closed between 13th and 15th streets. Only southbound trafﬁc can pass through the intersection. If the roads do reopen Friday, the intersection will have been at least partially blocked for 10 days spanning two workweeks and a holiday weekend. Trafﬁc was severely affected near the closure, with cars and buses being diverted from a key artery in and out of the city. While the cause of the sinkhole is still being investigated, Hawkins said it appears that the hole developed because a nearby manhole was blocking a storm drain.
Welcome to the start of summer slowdowns on local rail. Wednesday’s high temperatures were expected to cause delays for MARC and VRE riders during the afternoon and evening commute, with heat restrictions reducing the speeds at which trains on both services can travel. For MARC riders on the Camden and Brunswick, Md., lines, delays of between 5 and 15 minutes were expected. VRE riders faced delays of between 2 and 11 minutes.

A Loudoun County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a woman who came at him with a knife at a Sterling, Va., Costco on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said, sending shoppers and employees ducking behind cash registers and rushing out of the suburban store. Deputies responded to a report of a disorderly person and first deployed a taser to subdue her, authorities said. One deputy ﬁred when she continued to advance. A second deputy was wounded, apparently when a bullet ricocheted, but is expected to recover. Renee Haber, a front-end manager at the store near the busy intersection of Cascades Parkway and Route 7, said the incident started when the woman began to act erratically as her shift was ending.

Gov. Bob McDonnell has restored the rights of more than 4,800 felons, more than any previous administration.
McDonnell said at a news conference. “I believe in an America of second chances.” The Republican governor was joined on stage by civil-rights advo-
cates and legislators from both parties, including members of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, who have pressed for years to reform the state’s strict process for restoring felons’ rights. “This is an important day,” NAACP national president Benjamin Todd Jealous told a room packed with people who have lobbied on the issue. “This is what the nation yearns for.” In Virginia, only the governor can restore felons’ rights. The Sentencing Project says about 350,000 Virginians who had completed their sentences remained disenfranchised in 2010. Thousands of those residents could become registered voters in time for the November election as a result of McDonnell’s new policy. L ARRY O’DELL (AP)

Cover Story Minor Victories For White House
Stuck in Second
The White House, when asked for examples of Obama’s ability to turn public support into legislative victories, points to the president’s successful efforts last year to get young people to urge Congress to stop an increase in student loan interest rates. With the same issue now back on the table, Obama’s team will try to replicate last year’s efforts, with the president scheduled to appear with college students at a White House event Friday. Obama advisers also hope that Congress will pass a White House-backed immigration bill later this year, which would be a big victory for the president. The Republican Party’s willingness to consider overhauling the nation’s immigration laws is a result of the overwhelming support Obama received from Hispanic voters in the November election. (AP) AP
Controversies and gridlock stall Obama’s legislative agenda as his second term unfolds
Washington For President Barack Obama, the opening months of his second term have been a frustrating reminder of the limits of presidential power and the durability of the Washington political apparatus he disdains. Obama has yet to achieve a signiﬁcant second term legislative victory, a task that will only get harder as the calendar inches closer to next year’s midterm elections. A trio of controversies roiling Washington have emboldened Republicans eager to gain an advantage over the president and revealed a Democratic establishment willing to publicly second-guess the White House. And Obama, who ran for ofﬁce as an outsider pledging to overcome Washington’s bitter partisan divide, acknowledges he’s made little progress on that front. “What’s blocking us right now is the sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that, frankly, I was hoping to overcome in 2008,” Obama told donors at a Democratic fundraiser last week. Driving at least part of the White House’s response to the recent controversies — a GOP
On Defense Frustration has been increasingly evident as the White House grapples with separate controversies: a GOP investigation into the attacks in Benghazi, Libya; the targeting of conservative political groups by the Internal Revenue Service; and the Justice Department’s scrutiny of journalists. (AP)
President Barack White House White House press secretary Obama became senior adviser Jay Carney mockingly visibly angry recently Dan Pfeiffer took suggested a reporter was when discussing to Sunday talk being “petulant” while the Benghazi shows to accuse pressing for details about investigations, Republicans of when the president’s team casting the trying to drag knew about the IRS targeting, Republican push though he later acknowledged Washington into for answers as a “a swamp of that some criticism of the “sideshow” and a White House’s response to the partisan fishing “political circus.” expeditions.” matter was “legitimate.”
investigation into the attacks in Benghazi, Libya; the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service; and the Justice Department’s scrutiny of the media — is its well-known contempt for “establishment” Washington, including the political strategists in both parties that are quick to offer up analysis or a provocative quote and a media culture that can quickly turn a problem into a scandal. “It’s clear to him and everyone at the White House the difference between a legitimate issue and something that’s ginned up for political purposes,” said former Obama aide Ben LaBolt. Behind the scenes, the White House has signaled an awareness that it needs to strengthen its alliances within Washington. New chief of staff Denis McDonough has been a driving force behind Obama’s recent din-
“HE’S VERY GOOD AND VERY INTERESTED IN THE PAGEANTRY OF POLITICS, BUT HE’S VERY BAD AT THE HARD WORK IT TAKES IN ORDER TO GOVERN.” — REPUBLICAN STR ATEGIST KEVIN MADDEN, SAYING THAT IT DOES PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA LITTLE GOOD IF ALL HE DOES IS WIN FIGHTS “OVER WHO IS GOING TO COME OUT OF ONE OF THESE SKIRMISHES WITH A HIGHER APPROVAL RATING.”
ners with Republican and Democratic lawmakers, outings that were unheard of during his ﬁrst term. And McDonough has also been inviting Democratic strategists to the White House for brainstorming sessions and to ask for their support. But perhaps most important to the White House are polls suggesting the controversies have done little damage to Obama’s standing with the public. A new CNN/Opinion Research Center poll showed 53 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing — virtually the same as his approval rating before the controversies erupted. However, Obama has had mixed results turning public support into legislative victories. He failed in his efforts earlier this year to tighten background checks for gun purchasers, a policy backed by roughly 90 percent of Americans. He’s also made little progress toward getting Republicans to sign on to a “grand bargain” for reducing the deﬁcit despite polls showing the public backs plans similar to the president’s, which would include both tax increases and spending cuts.

Stuck in a Familiar Position Just as in last season, the Heat-Pacers series is deadlocked at 2-2
NASCAR 8:30 P.M. | TNT Today EAST FINALS
RON HOSKINS/NBAE VIA GETTY IMAGES
NBA Playoffs Around the start of the playoffs, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra insisted that the postseason path his team would wind up navigating had the potential to be more challenging than the route the team took to the NBA championship a year ago. He’s apparently correct, probably to his chagrin. The defending NBA champion Heat are in a bit of trouble. They can’t get enough rebounds, can’t get Dwyane Wade on track and can’t get consistency out of Chris Bosh. Tonight, the Heat host the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference ﬁnals that’s now knotted at two games each. “We have a great locker room of alpha competitors,” Spoelstra said Wednesday. “And so they take this very seriously. We’re playing against a worthy opponent and if we don’t play well, they beat us.” Game 6 will be in Indiana on Saturday night, while the Western
Conference champion San Antonio Spurs keep waiting to see who they’ll face in the NBA Finals starting on June 6. History says the Game 5 winner when a series is tied at 2-2 has a colossal upper hand, though that’s an axiom that the Heat both proved and disproved last season. When the Heat and Pacers split the ﬁrst four games of their secondround series last year, Miami rolled to a 115-83 home win in Game 5 and captured the series in six games. One round later, Miami lost a home Game 5 of the East ﬁnals to Boston, then went on the road for Game 6 and got a virtuoso 45-point night from LeBron James to stave off elimination before coming home and winning Game 7 to advance. Given all that, it’s no wonder why Spoelstra said the Heat aren’t looking back at any series as a blueprint for how the ﬁnal acts of this one should go. TIM REYNOLDS (AP)
Miami forward LeBron James has averaged 28.0 points a game in the East finals.
Have the Spurs Gotten Better With Age? Tim Duncan has led the San Antonio Spurs to four NBA titles, but the 6-foot-11 forward is 37 years old and nearing the end of his career. His Big Three companions Manu Ginobili, 35, and Tony Parker, 31, also have more than 10 grueling NBA seasons under their belts. But that didn’t stop the Spurs from sweeping the Grizzlies to win the Western Conference title. So how does this year’s squad compare with previous Spurs championship teams? JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)
Games it took the Spurs to reach the NBA Finals this year. During their previous three championship runs, they took 16 games in 2006-07, 16 games in 2004-05 and 18 games in 2002-03.
Average points scored per game this season, 4.5 more than the Spurs’ highest-scoring team to win the NBA title. San Antonio averaged the fourthmost points per game in the league this year.
Points per game the Spurs have outscored their opponents during this postseason, more than doubling their playoff point differential in each of San Antonio’s previous two title runs.

2 Spurs players named to an All-NBA team this year — Duncan (first) and Parker (third). In their past four title seasons, Duncan was the lone Spurs player to receive All-NBA honors.

Sports Olympics Three months after being dropped from the 2020 Olympics, wrestling won a reprieve Wednesday and made the IOC shortlist for inclusion in the games. A lso making the cut were squash and a combined baseballsoftball bid. Eight sports were vying for a single opening on the lineup. Eliminated from contention were ﬁve sports — karate, roll-
er sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and the Chinese martial art of wushu. The IOC executive board will submit wrestling, squash and baseball-softball to the full IOC assembly for a ﬁnal decision on Sept. 8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “The match is not ﬁnished,” said Nenad Lalovic, the recently elected president of the international wrestling federation, FILA. “We have a second match to ﬁght. But be careful, we are good ﬁghters.”
Despite a tradition dating to the ancient Olympics, wrestling was surprisingly cut from the list of core sports by the IOC board in February. The decision caused an international outcry and prompted the United States, Russia, Iran and other countries to join forces in a bid to bring the sport back. The decision on the shortlist came after each of the eight sports federations made 30-minute closeddoor presentations to the IOC executive board. STEPHEN WILSON (AP)

Serena Williams has lost four games in her first two matches at the French Open.
Federer, Serena Ease to 3rd Round American Hampton earns her 1st career French Open victory Tennis Roger Federer walked onto Court Suzanne Lenglen, smiled when greeted with applause and looked up into the stands, where three youngsters waved a banner that read, “Roger 4 Ever.” Forever? Probably not, but Federer easily outlasted qualiﬁer Somdev Devvarman in the second round of the French Open, winning 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 Wednesday. Top-ranked Serena Williams also showed staying power, extending her career-best winning streak to 26 matches by beating wild card Caroline Garcia of France, 6-1, 6-2.

But he’s rested and healthy, and his vast repertoire of shots was on display against the overmatched Devvarman, who is ranked 188th and now 0-9 against top-10 players. While Williams and Federer savored their latest successes, Jamie Hampton earned her ﬁrst career French Open victory, an upset of No. 25 Lucie Safarova 7-6 (5), 3-6, 9-7. With her win, American women ﬁnished the ﬁrst round 10-5. Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki lost to Bojana Jovanovski 7-6 (2), 6-3. In other men’s second-round play, No. 4 David Ferrer beat fellow Spaniard Albert Montanes 6-2, 6-1, 6-3. No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France eliminated Jarkko Nieminen 7-6 (6), 6-4, 6-3.

Chances are, the closest you’ll come to working alongside a legendary artist is sharing a cubicle with Vincent van Goes to the Occasional Pottery Class. Those tasked with protecting the artwork at D.C.’s museums and galleries are in the presence of greatness every day. Though neither an interest in art nor a familiarity with the pieces they monitor is a job requirement, the sentinels we spoke with at local museums and galleries can’t help but form connections with the masterpieces that surround them. As museum season revs up, why not solicit the thoughts of those in charge of protecting all that greatness? HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

I didn’t know about the impressionist movement, the expressionist movement. I knew a love for art was in me.” FAVORITE PAINTING IN THE MUSEUM: “Niagara,” by Frederic Edwin Church (1857) WHY IT’S HIS FAVORITE: “I love landscapes. Church was in the Hudson River School [a 19th-century American art movement]. You don’t see a foreground where people can stand, so you feel like you are inside the water. And it is huge; it is enormous. The message to me is about manifest destiny, that America is destined to discover the entire America from north to south. I am not an artist, but I love it.”

When I ﬁrst came here, I was very particular about where I wanted to be [stationed in the museum], but I enjoy all of it now. When I go anywhere I’m very conscious of the design. I look up and see the ceiling. Working here has really opened my eyes to art.” FAVORITE WORK OF ART IN THE MUSEUM: “The Bridge at Argenteuil,” by Claude Monet (1874) WHY IT’S HER FAVORITE: “The name of the painting is ‘The Bridge at Argenteuil,’ but I always focus on the sailboat. It makes you feel like you’re on it and you’re about to go under the bridge. The impressionists always uplift me. They’re bright and airy and like a picture taken at that moment.

The Waiting Game ON THE SPOT Ralph Nader The Green Party’s champion always has some new cause. Right now, he also has a new book, “Told You So,” a collection of his weekly columns from between 1972 and 2012. What else is he up to? Recruiting billionaires to save the country. We asked him why. Do you ever think about running for president again? I have another plan. I think the only people who can break up the two-party system with an independent run or a third party are billionaires. I wrote a [2009 novel], “Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!,” that had billionaires turning the country around.
You think a billionaire could win a presidential contest? The two-party system is so rigged. But it’s not hard for a Perot or a Bloomberg to turn it into a three-way race.
Musician Iris DeMent opens herself up to inspiration, even if it takes a decade or more
collection of old hymns titled “Lifeline.” DeMent, 52, spent those many years between projects writing songs. “Sometimes a chorus might come to me, and I might forget about it for 10 years,” DeMent says. “I don’t worry about losing it anymore, because usually if it’s good, it’s in there and it’ll reappear later.” That happened with the harrowing “The Night I Learned How Not to Pray,” which recounts a childhood tragedy and an ensuing crisis of faith. The song was based on the experiences
Music Songwriter Iris DeMent has a problem with the words “songwriter Iris DeMent.” “I don’t like calling what I do writing songs,” she says. “It really doesn’t have much to do with pen and paper. I tried that a time or two and it was terrifying.” The Arkansas native sees herself more as a conduit than a creator, one without much in the way of a set process or regimen. “I just pray a lot that a song will come to me, and every now and then it does. A feeling will come along, and things just tumble out of me.”
Inside Track Title track “Sing the Delta” is a bittersweet reminiscence of DeMent’s childhood home in the Arkansas Delta. “It’s the land where the cotton used to grow/ that owns a piece of my heart and soul,” she sings in her gentle accent, as horns crest and fall away.
“I don’t worry about losing [a song idea] anymore, because usually if it’s good, it’s in there and it’ll reappear later.”
of a friend, but DeMent sings it with such determination that it sounds like autobiography. It took her nearly a decade to piece the song together. “It was an idea I had years ago, and it started with the chorus,” she says. “I forgot all about it, then revisited it later and it still had the power to stir me. The next thing you know a couple of verses had tumbled out. I’m very critical of myself, so by the time I get to where I’m willing to record something, I’m usually pretty sure that I’m going to be able to sing it until the day I die.”
How would you be involved?
Anyone in particular in mind? Bloomberg came close to running. But he told me 15 percent of Republicans would vote for the Republican nominee if it was Leon Trotsky and 15 percent of Democrats would vote for the Democratic nominee if it was Ayn Rand, and he didn’t think you could fight that. But I think it’s doable.
What’s something non-billionaires can do to improve government? Start watchdog groups on members of Congress. There are only 535! Nothing stops people from getting some neighbors into a group in each district. And you won’t believe the change.

T he approach work s for her. DeMent’s songs, with their evocative lyrics and hymnlike melodies, are simultaneously powerful and simple. Her 2012 album, “Sing the Delta,” mixes soul, country and gospel to paint an affectionate landscape of her Arkansas home and a tender portrait of DeMent’s mother, who taught her to find solace and insight in music. The downside is that this approach can take a while. “Sing the Delta” was DeMent’s first collection of original material in 16 years. Her previous studio album, released in 2004, was a

Clever [Expletive] Words “I gave myself permission to do whatever occurred to me, whatever bounced around inside me.”
— A A RON POSNER, ON HIS APPROACH TO ADAPTING CHEKHOV’S “THE SEAGULL”
The new play at Woolly Mammoth, “Stupid [Expletive] Bird,” won’t start until you tell it to. An actor reveals a card instructing the audience to say “start the [expletive] play.” The cast then waits until someone gives them the go-ahead. This lets you know right away that Aaron Posner’s new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” is a departure from the original. But Chekhov knew all about departure. When Chekhov’s plays premiered in the late 19th century, they were revolutionary. In other works of the time, characters would constantly declare their feelings to the audience. Chekhov’s use of subtext — of showing what the characters felt from what they didn’t say — would completely change the way people thought about drama. In “Stupid [Expletive] Bird” (and “The Seagull”) a young playwright, Con (Brad Koed), struggles to create surprising theater. He wants to change the world, hold onto his girlfriend and annoy his

actress mom. Every character is in love with someone who doesn’t love them back, and they wrestle with art, aging and the meaninglessness of life. “It’s a sacred cow,” Posner, who also directed, says of “The Seagull.” “And that makes it more fun to take shots at.” Chekhov’s classic is a fertile
playground for Posner. “I love the play, but it’s all so earnest,” he says. “It comes from such a heartfelt place that it makes me want to slap the characters around a little bit. So I did.” Posner began writing the script as a personal project, not meant for production. That gave him freedom, which persisted even after

Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
901 E St. NW; Nleomf.org. (Judiciary Square)
Did You Know?
This compact national memorial is tucked in a one-block space between the National Building Museum and the D.C. Court of Appeals. More than 19,000 law enforcement officials have died in the line of duty since 1791; their names are carved on the two marble walls. To find a specific name, consult a directory inside one of the four posts around the edges of the memorial. Among the notable names are the 72 officers who were killed in the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 — the single deadliest day in American law enforcement history.
the play made it into Woolly Mammoth’s season. “I gave myself permission to do whatever occurred to me, whatever bounced around inside me,” he says. That includes frank conversations with the audience, monologues Chekhov never would have imagined for his characters and original songs about despair plunked out on a ukulele. Posner is an experienced adaptor — he brought novels “The Chosen” and “My Name Is Asher Lev” to the stage. His intention was to faithfully depict another author’s story. “Here my goal is the opposite,” he says. “It’s to use the brilliance of Chekhov as a jumpingoff point for my own explorations.”
The memorial is stocked with pencils and paper to make stone rubbings.

iiJail matron Anna Hart of Hamilton County, Ohio, became the first female officer to die in the line of duty when an inmate attempting to escape struck her with an iron bedpost. She died on July 24, 1916. iiWhen the memorial was dedicated in 1991, it held 12,561 names. New ones are engraved every spring and formally dedicated each May 13.

Endless Love “Before Midnight,” out Friday, checks in on the lovers who met in 1995’s “Before Sunrise” and re-met in 2004’s “Before Sunset.” They’re not the first movie couple to stick it out for the long haul. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 Carl and Ellie Condensed to a wordless, fourminute montage, the till-death-dous-part love story of this couple in 2009’s “Up” makes for the most tearinducing opening scene of all time.
2 Eben and Jennie In 1948’s “Portrait of Jennie,” Joseph Cotten is a struggling artist and Jennifer Jones is a little girl who bends time so they can be together age-appropriately. Makes your last Valentine’s Day present look a little cheap, huh?
3 Doris and George In 1978’s “Same Time, Next Year,” the main characters (who meet once a year in the same hotel room) are married to other people. Adultery — bringing people together since the dawn of time.
4 Daniel and Helen In 1992’s “Forever Young,” Mel Gibson is a pilot who asks to be frozen in 1939 because he can’t bear to live without his comatose girlfriend. He wakes up in 1992 and, hey! — she’s alive and well. That was 53 years well spent.
5 Ethel and Norman The longtime couple’s summer cottage is the setting for 1981’s “On Golden Pond,” which reveals the universal truth of enduring relationships: Eventually your significant other will drive you absolutely bleeping insane.

— DOM M A K ER, HALF OF BRITISH ELECTRONIC DUO MOUNT KIMBIE
Kimbie’s new album, the justreleased “Cold Spring Fault Less Youth,” features 11 tracks, each of which sounds completely unlike the others. “If you choose a few songs out of the new album, you wouldn’t think they were by the same band,” says Dom Maker, who formed Mount Kimbie in 2009 with Kai Campos while the two were students at London South Bank University. The duo recently played to bigger crowds on a major European tour with English indie-poppers the xx and is now performing across the U.S. Campos and Maker’s favorite shows haven’t been the stadium performances, though. “Big shows on these massive stages are a different experience completely,” Campos says. “When it goes really well, it’s an amazing feeling. But the actual act of planning is quite different. You can hear any little discrepancy. It’s ampli-
fied so much because of the size of the venue, so you approach those [shows] a bit differently.” A 300-person show in Austria is where the two felt most in their element. “If I had to only do one type of venue for the rest of my life, it would have to be small shows,” Campos says. At the rate the band’s popularity is rising, though, that might not be an option for long. “We have this weird, intensive insecurity about not being musicians,” Campos says. They are musicians, of course: Unlike many other electronic acts, the two play instruments during live sets. For now, the band’s preference for smaller venues is good news for District fans: Black Cat’s mainstage area holds only 700 people. SCOT T SHIGEOK A (FOR E XPRESS)

Food at a recent WhyFoodWorks dinner party included salmon cakes with a goat cheese sauce, roasted broccoli and risotto made from oats, left; Waybright’s no-bake, cheese-free “cheesefake” is packed with fiber.
A Smarter Dinner Party A D.C. dietitian makes house calls to teach healthy cooking techniques among my friends,” says Jennifer Utz, 30, a Shirlington resident who recently hosted a group of girlfriends for one of Waybright’s dinner parties. “I thought it would be a good way to learn how to make something other than mac and cheese.” Waybright walked the group through preparing bacon-wrapped tilapia and taught the women kitchen basics, such as how to cut an onion. Each guest went home with a spice blend and printouts of the recipes. “Each recipe is replicable. This is something you can do, something you can use and enjoy in your everyday life,” Waybright says. The women had so much fun, they reconvened less than a week later at another friend’s house for a second dinner party. There’s no denying that the definition of “healthy cooking” is hotly debated. Some people swear by low-fat diets, while others profess that veganism, Paleo or low-
— SA R A H WAY BRIGHT, REGISTERED DIETITIAN AND FOUNDER OF WHYFOODWORKS,
“For some, food is a means to an end. It’s fuel,” she says. “You have other people for whom nutrition is way down on the list. It’s about culture and celebration. For me, the food has to be delicious. But it’s got to be more than that. It has to bring something to the table, nutritionally.” The dinner parties cost $60 per guest, with an optional $8 wine pairing. There is a discount for repeat clients, and for every 10 events she books, Waybright donates a dinner party to a group that can’t afford it. The host provides nothing but the guest list and a dinner table; Waybright brings all the ingredients and supplies, including plates and silverware, and takes the cleanup with her. She acknowledges that some people might view having a dietitian cook for them as guilt-inducing, but she stresses that guilt has no place in her view of food. “I won’t come in and say, ‘Eat this, not that.’ I don’t talk about weight loss,” she says. “It’s about helping people make better decisions.” M AG G I E FA Z E L I FA R D
WHICH ORGANIZES HEALTHY DINNER PARTIES AROUND D.C.
(THE WASHINGTON POST )
What’s the secret to a memorable dinner party? For 29-year-old Sarah Waybright, it’s good company, good food and good wine — plus a menu that won’t leave guests feeling sick, stuffed or guilt-ridden. “When you think about ‘treating’ yourself, it’s about instant gratification,” says Waybright, a registered dietitian and the woman behind WhyFoodWorks, a D.C. healthful dinner-party service. “You go to a wedding, a birthday party or dinner at someone’s house and everything looks delicious, then you overeat and feel [terrible] at the end of the night.” Through WhyFoodWorks events — which feel like a cooking show in your kitchen — Waybright aims to teach people how to balance flavor with nutrition and social interaction with personal well-being. Wine pairings and dessert, such as a slice of grain-free coconut “cheesefake,” keep the educational meals lively and festive. “I’m a notoriously bad cook
carb is the key to good health. Waybright, who grew up on a farm in Gettysburg, Pa., where each meal was home-cooked and dessert involved running out to pick raspberries fresh off the bush, is not nearly so militant. “There’s not a single diet that’s perfect for everybody,” she says. “I don’t think everyone should be vegetarian. I don’t think everyone should be Paleo. I don’t think anyone should be eating the standard American diet” of processed food and refined carbohydrates and fats. Waybright uses the dinner parties as a vehicle to help people figure out what works best for them. She also challenges guests to question the merit of the food they’re putting in their mouths.
Sarah Waybright, founder of WhyFoodWorks, pours wine at one of the healthconscious dinner parties she hosts.
“For some, food is a means to an end. It’s fuel. You have other people for whom nutrition is way down on the list. … For me, the food has to be delicious. But it’s got to be more than that. It has to bring something to the table, nutritionally.”

THOMAS DAY WAS A FREE BLACK CRAFTSMAN IN PRE-CIVIL WAR NORTH CAROLINA; his work is on display at the Renwick Gallery of the
American Art Museum. The above is a sofa made somewhere from 1845 to 1855 and is a combination of mahogany and mahogany veneer over yellow pine. It is not for sale, no matter how perfect it would look in your living room, and attempting to steal it would probably be a bad idea since a) stealing is bad and b) it’s hard to run with a couch.

Coach K: ACC Should Think Big He urges the league to embrace its label as the country’s best
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski believes the new-look ACC could be the best basketball league in the country — and should act like it. The ACC is growing to 15 teams next season when Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame join. National champion Louisville comes aboard the following year to replace Big Ten-bound Maryland. Krzyzewski said Wednesday that “if you really believe this could be the greatest conference ever, what are all the things that the greatest conference ever would do?” Speaking during his annual “K Academy” fantasy camp at Duke,
ANDY LYONS/GETTY IMAGES
Coach Mike Krzyzewski wants the ACC to “think outside conventional ways.”
he said the league needs to “look at the total package of what we have” and “think outside conventional ways” in everything from its preseason media day to its schedule and postseason tournament. The location of future ACC tournaments has been a hot topic, with commissioner John Swofford raising the possibility that they could
be held in New York. They will be played in Greensboro, N.C., in 2014 and 2015, but nothing has been decided beyond that. When asked where he thinks the tournament should be played, Krzyzewski said the ACC “should take a look at the total package of what we have right now and not micromanage it,” adding that he
wants the league to think big. “Look at it as the fact that you might have the best business. And what do you do to make that the best?” he said. “Are we a $1 billion business functioning as a $500 million business? Or are we a $1 billion business that wants to be a $2 billion [business]?” Krzyzewski, the dean of ACC coaches with a men’s Division I-best 957 career victories in 38 combined seasons at Army and Duke, said he voiced those opinions at the league’s annual meetings two weeks ago in Amelia Island, Fla. He said when he came to Duke in 1980 “everybody was still an ACC guy. “And I think to me that has to happen now,” he added. “That’s what I’m trying to promote. I say it publicly all the time. We will all be better if we are all better.” JOEDY MCCREARY (AP)

Will Smith, left, and Jaden Smith, right, hang out at the Virgin Galactic spaceport in the New Mexico desert as part of the press junket for their new movie “After Earth.”
The Family Business Will Smith guides his kids’ showbiz careers but lets them carve out their own paths Personalities Will Smith has a new outlook on teenagers: Parents do indeed understand. The rapper-turned-actor says he’s “grown a lot” since writing the Grammy-winning 1988 hit that humorously declared they didn’t. All three of his children now at least dabble in music and acting, most notably 14-year-old Jaden, who stars with his father in the new sci-ﬁ ﬁlm “After Earth,” opening Friday. Even in the midst of a globe-hopping promotional tour for the movie,
Smith recognizes the downside to making stardom a family affair. “I think that the major risk of this particular business is strictly emotional,” he says. “The business has almost a narcotic quality. So it’s almost as if you’re introducing a narcotic into your kids’ life. “So for [wife] Jada [Pinkett Smith] and I, the most important thing is that they have to stay focused and grounded on the fact that they are giving,” he adds. “You don’t make movies for your ego. You make movies to … bring joy, to add value to the world.” Smith, 44, and Jaden ﬁrst costarred together in 2006’s “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Smith also produced his son’s hit 2010 remake of “The Karate Kid” with Jackie Chan. Smith says he wants his fami-

ly — which includes daughter Willow, 12, a singer and actress, and son Trey, 20, a DJ — to be successful in the entertainment industry across generations. “I grew up in a family business,”
he says. “Everybody works together and that’s how the family bonds and communicates and how we eat. In my mind, I’m a warrior and I’m teaching my son how to hunt.” Beyond acting, Jaden learned his father’s early raps and now writes his own. While he isn’t looking to replicate the one-time Fresh Prince’s every move, it’s clear he has internalized Dad’s long-term outlook. “If I wanted my career to be exactly like his, then people would keep telling me for the rest of my life, ‘Wow, you successfully pulled off your dad’s career. Congratulations!’” Jaden says. “If I was doing just what he did, then my son would feel like he had to do just what I did. I want my son to feel like he can be a classical pianist if he wants to.” RYAN PEARSON (AP)

Rapid ‘Renovation’ New HGTV show remakes homes while the owners eat dinner
June 7th - 9th at the Fairfax County Government Center
Series Premiere The notion of “dinner and a show” takes on a new meaning with “Renovation Raiders.” HGTV’s new homeimprovement series is the latest variation on the secret ambush makeover. Perhaps the most influential quickie makeover series was the British show “Ground Force,” broadcast on the BBC from 1997 to 2005. On “Force,” a couple would be invited away for the weekend so a crew could transform their backyard.

And how often do people go out for four-hour meals? This isn’t France or Italy, where long, languid meals can last most of the day. People with a penchant for fast food need not apply.

“Politicians who are involved in actual scandal could take some notes from President Obama, who explained lipstick on his collar before others could use their imagination.” — JOHN VINSON AT WEBPRONEWS.COM
shares advice for those who have some explainin’ to do. President Barack Obama told a crowd at a White House reception for AsianAmerican and Paciﬁc Islander Heritage Month on Tuesday night that the culprit was the aunt of “American Idol” runner-up Jessica Sanchez. “I do not want to be in trouble with Michelle,” he said teasingly. “That’s why I’m calling you out.”
“Sure, you love the buttery, chemical-y, cholesterol-y flavor of a nice bag of hot, steaming popcorn. But who has the time or cardiovascular stamina to place a bag into the microwave, push a button, and wait up to three minutes?” — HAMILTON NOLAN AT GAWKER.COM
criticizes those whose impatience has spurred an uptick in sales for prepopped bags of popcorn.
Do you have
psoriasis? If you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis affecting more than 10% of your body, you may qualify to participate in a clinical research study.

In addition, participants will be compensated for each visit. Call Caitlin at the Clinical Trials Center at

“Now if only @Instagram will follow Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and create verified badges.” — @ANTHONYQUINTANO drops a hint after Facebook launched “veriﬁed pages” on Wednesday “to help people ﬁnd the authentic accounts of celebrities and
other high-proﬁle people and businesses.”
“Who else remembers Lincoln Chafee saying he couldn’t switch parties back in 2006 because he was named for Abraham Lincoln?” — @RICKKLEIN responds to Rhode Island Gov. Chafee’s decision to become a Democrat and run for a second term.
“Based on the regular price point for tea kettles, Graves’ other kettles sell for upwards of $100, and don’t appear to resemble fascist dictators.” — KATIE ROGERS AT GUARDIAN .CO.UK/WORLD/US-NEWS-BLOG
reports that a $40 Michael Graves teapot sold out after Reddit users pointed out that it resembled Adolf Hitler. “And now, with a socialmedia adjusted price point, the kettle is selling for $199 or best offer on eBay,” Rogers added.

PAR SCORE 160-170, BEST SCORE 245
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You will want to follow the rules — until you come up against one that you feel is unfair, and that effectively stops you in your tracks. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may discover that things are not entirely as they seem. You can try to fix key problems, but success depends on priorities. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may have trouble agreeing with someone whose notions have not, in the past, been all that different from your own. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You haven’t been focusing on the key issues, and yet with a little effort, you can place yourself at the epicenter of major activities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your enthusiasm is not likely to be matched today, but that doesn’t mean you can’t team up with others and work well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may think you’re trying to share information today, but you may simply be trying to relieve yourself of a certain burden. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You can surely change that which is not working for you. Others are likely to realize that following you is a smart business decision. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may be leaning toward the side of a certain argument that you may have found distasteful only a day or two ago.
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.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ve been working toward the realization of a certain dream, but today you feel further away than ever. This is only an illusion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You must prepare yourself for news that will surely take you by surprise and require you to adjust your way of thinking — at least temporarily.

Today: Mostly sunny, hot and humid today. Mainly clear and humid tonight.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your energy is on the rise, but you’ll understand the need for a little more focus. Now is no time for a scattered, random approach. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are trying to communicate with others in a way that has not yet caught on. Soon, however, your way will be the right way.

Are You Still Depressed? NIH RESEARCH STUDY WITH RILUZOLE TO QUICKLY REDUCE SYMPTOMS
This research study is enrolling eligible participants, ages 18-70, with Bipolar Depression whose depressive symptoms have failed to improve.

James Lipton tells Parade magazine that he spent a year in the 1950s as a Paris pimp. He said he was friends with a prostitute, who, when he ran out of money and planned to go home, got him the job: “I had to be OK’d by the underworld; otherwise they would’ve found me floating in the Seine.” He represented a whole bordello and says “it was a great year of my life.” (EXPRESS)
Demi Moore did not attend daughter Scout Willis’ graduation from Brown University on Sunday, Radaronline .com reported. Father Bruce Willis was there, as were sisters Tallulah and Rumer. “The buzz was that Demi was supposed to come in, but everyone was wondering where she was,” said an unnamed source. “She was nowhere to be seen.” (EXPRESS)

Where’s Biebs’ Mom? More details have emerged on the recent complaints about Justin Bieber’s driving. Officials say Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating Bieber for reckless driving after witnesses, including former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, complained that he’s speeding through their community. At about 8 p.m. Monday, Bieber allegedly drove his white Ferrari at freeway speeds in a 25 mph zone. Johnson was upset and followed Bieber home, where he told Bieber he wanted to talk about his reckless driving. Bieber allegedly scurried into his home without speaking. (AP)
