Sheriff’s deputies in Caddo Parish, La., say an alligator took a bite out of a patrol car. WBRZ-TV reports deputies were called Monday to Highway 1 after someone saw the gator in the road. Deputies were waiting for wildlife removal experts when the alligator chomped off a piece of the front bumper. They estimate the gator was 8 feet long.

A large bullsnake caused a power outage in northern Wyoming that affected about 3,900 electric customers. Montana-Dakota Utilities spokesman Mark Hanson says the power outage occurred about 12:15 p.m. Tuesday when the snake tripped a transformer. Hanson says the outage included parts of the city of Sheridan and surrounding communities. Most customers had power restored within a couple of hours. (AP)

It remains a mystery how the snake got into the cabinet. A check of neighbors found no one had lost a python. (AP)

Twice-stolen sax returned Music store employee’s keen eye helped find the burglarized horn
A distinctive mouthpiece, reed and ligature were added to the stolen instrument.
MYRNA SISLEN PHOTOS
THE DISTRICT The passenger on the Silver Line Metro train first noticed the leather instrument case with a cannonball logo. Then he saw that the man who was carrying it also had a flute. The case held a Gerald Albright signature series Cannonball saxophone. Along with the flute, it had been stolen from the Middle C Music store in Tenleytown. The sax was first taken last Thursday. It was mysteriously returned Saturday, then taken again in yet another burglary Sunday. On Tuesday, the passenger on the Metro, on his way to his job at Middle C Music, recognized the instruments from the Wisconsin Avenue store. He watched the man through seven stops, from Potomac Avenue to Metro Center, and saw him disappear into a clothing shop. The worker alerted authorities, and D.C. police arrested the suspect. For the second time in five days, the same prized saxophone worth $4,400 had been rescued.
A Gerald Albright signature Cannonball saxophone was stolen twice from Middle C Music Store.
The employee who spotted his own store’s stolen property on the city’s sprawling transit system described it as “kind of a miracle.” Middle C Music store owner Myrna Sislen said she is “happy to have the horn back” but also worried that “if this guy gets out, he will come and do this again.” D.C. police identified the suspect as Vincent Stuart Hamond, 55. He is charged with two counts of burglary in connection with the Thursday and Sunday breakins at the shop, both of which were captured on security video. Sislen said that in the Thursday burglary, an older man wearing a white hat went directly for the Cannonball sax hanging high on a display wall, and took
a rental flute as well. Then on Saturday, she said, a person who wouldn’t give his name called the store to say he had the saxophone and was downtown. A second call came from a security guard who said the instrument had been left at an office building. Sislen said when she retrieved the saxophone, a distinctive mouthpiece, reed and ligature, used to hold the mouthpiece in place, had been added to the horn. Police took those items as evidence, and Sislen returned the sax to its case. Early Sunday, police said the man struck again, and is seen on video smashing in the front door with a club. The person again took the Cannonball saxophone, along with a clarinet, another flute and a box of No. 3 reeds. Sislen said it appears from the video that the culprit targeted the Cannonball sax, an instrument recognized by musicians and prized for its smooth sound. She believes the man who took it “knew exactly what he wanted.” Based on the instrument taken, along with the reeds and mouthpiece, she said, “This guy is a player.” PETER HERMANN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

July 4 plans still vague
Primary results reflect tensions in Va. electorate
Rushed logistics could challenge security, invite protesters and inconvenience visitors
Polarizing figure returns
PAUL J. RICHARDS (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
THE DISTRICT With three weeks to go, exactly what’s going to happen in Washington on the Fourth of July remains a subject of intense confusion because of President Trump’s plans to reshape the nation’s premier celebration. Will Independence Day festivities be centered around the Washington Monument or shift to the Lincoln Memorial, as the White House has reportedly requested? Will Trump follow through on his plans to give a speech? If he does, will the White House restrict his audience to supporters at the traditionally nonpolitical event? The White House hasn’t revealed its plans. The National Park Service, which is primarily responsible for the event, has stayed quiet. That leaves the city government, which helps with security, in the dark. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C.’s representative in Congress, said interdepartmental planning meetings for July 4 usually begin up to three months in advance. But to her knowledge, none of those meetings has happened. “The city is scrambling to figure out what to do, because all they have is the outline of what [the White House] wants,” Norton said. She said she approached the park service for details but: “They wouldn’t tell us a thing. You know why? Because they don’t know a thing.” Mayor Muriel Bowser declined repeated requests for comment. Independence Day normally draws tens of thousands of people to the National Mall for a celebration with fireworks. The occasion has run smoothly for years. The first sign that 2019’s celebration may be a little different came in a February tweet from Trump announcing a special
Tuesday’s primary elections for legislators and prosecutors in Virginia yielded some surprising results. Here are highlights from key races. (EXPRESS)
Officials are working to arrange a second fireworks display on the Mall to coincide with Trump’s planned speech.
“Salute to America” on July 4 that would feature “an address by your favorite President, me!” Last week, a park service official told The Washington Post that the White House was planning a Trump speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. But since that report, the White House has refused to comment. Government officials and fireworks experts have been trying to arrange for an additional Fourth of July fireworks display on the Mall to go with Trump’s speech and the original display, relocated 1,500 feet south this year from the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool to West Potomac Park at the behest of Interior Secretary David Bernhardt. It was not clear if the second display would also be launched from behind the Lincoln Memorial, or when it would occur. “We are looking forward to an announcement from the White House that has all the details of the events, including any
Look for ‘Baby Trump’ If President Trump addresses the nation at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, a group of activists want him to see the scowling face of a giant floating orange baby. On Monday, activist group Code Pink became the first organization to request a protest permit from the National Park Service for the event. Through online fundraising, Code Pink has raised more than $10,000 to bring “Baby Trump” to the District. (TWP)
information on, perhaps, more fireworks,” park service spokesman Mike Litterst said Tuesday. Norton is predicting a security nightmare, with a new location
Takoma Park Library in D.C. will close for four months of repairs beginning June 22
and format being instituted on short notice and the president’s movements and security requirements causing chaos. Some activists see the event as an opportunity to disrupt Trump. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the activist Code Pink movement, said her group plans to organize a protest on the Mall. “It’s not that often that President Trump appears in a public venue in front of a crowd that’s not guaranteed to be friendly,” she said. “It’s going to be really hard for them to control. We’ll see what kind of trouble we can get into.” Others fear that an attempt to disrupt the event could backfire. Nadine Bloch, a veteran local organizer, said a speech would let leftist activists widely share their messages. But she said protesters could overplay their hand. “It’s a delicate balance,” he said. “You could end up just making more enemies.” (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)
Joe Morrissey, a former delegate who resigned in 2014 after pleading guilty to contributing Morrissey to the delinquency of a minor, defeated incumbent Sen. Rosalyn Dance, D-Petersburg. Morrissey overcame a history of personal scandals and a lack of support from state leaders by convincing voters of his outsider appeal.
Some challengers prevail Voters in Arlington and Fairfax counties ousted incumbent prosecutors in a contest cheered by advocates of criminal justice reform. In Arlington, Parisa Dehghani-Tafti defeated current Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos, D, who has served in that role since 2012. Raymond Morrogh has held the prosecutor seat in Fairfax County since 2008, but federal prosecutor Steve Descano narrowly defeated him Tuesday in the Democratic race.
Lawmaker results mixed Several experienced senators, including Emmett Hanger, R-Augusta, and minority leader Dick Saslaw, D-Fairfax, averted stiff challenges from more extreme opponents. On the other hand, national Muslim community leader and activist Qasim Rashid, who has never held office, secured the Democratic nomination to challenge state Sen. Richard Stuart, R-King George, this November.

Numerous D.C. public schools this week suspended a contract with the private before- and after-school care operator Springboard Education after receiving allegations that a Springboard employee made inappropriate physical contact with a 13-year-old student, according to a WAMU report. The alleged incident happened in mid-May at a Montessori school near Union Station in D.C. The accused employee has been removed from the school and referred to police, the schoolâ€™s principal told WAMU. More than 20 public and charter schools cut ties with the company, WAMU reported.

The black female mayor of Upper Marlboro, a small town in Prince Georgeâ€™s County, said while announcing her resignation this week that she had been the target of racism and bullying, NBC 4 reported. Tonga Turner, the townâ€™s first black mayor, said in a letter that she is resigning after two years to spend more time with her family, but she noted that the town has a â€œdark history.â€?

In census fight, panel passes contempt vote
FROZEN IN TIME
Prehistoric wolf’s head found intact
POLITICS A House committee voted Wednesday to hold two top Trump administration officials in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with subpoenas for documents related to a decision adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee voted 24-15 to advance contempt measures against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. The vote sends the measures to the full House. The committee’s action marks an escalation of Democratic efforts to use their House majority to aggressively investigate the inner workings of the Trump administration. The White House asserted executive privilege on the matter earlier Wednesday. The Justice Department said officials had “engaged in good-faith efforts” to satisfy the committee’s oversight needs and labeled the planned contempt vote “unnecessary and premature.” Democrats fear the citizenship question will reduce census participation in immigrant-heavy communities and result in a severe undercount of minority

voters. They say they want specific documents to determine why Ross added the question to the 2020 census and contend the administration has declined to provide the documents despite repeated requests. The administration has turned over more than 17,000 pages of documents and Ross testified for nearly seven hours in March. The Justice Department said two senior officials were interviewed by committee staff and said officials were working to produce tens of thousands of additional pages of relevant documents. The oversight panel’s chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, disputed the Justice
Department’s account and said most of the documents turned over to the committee had already been made public. “We must protect the integrity of the census and we must stand up for Congress’ authority under the Constitution to conduct meaningful oversight,” Cummings said. The administration’s refusal to turn over requested documents “does not appear to be an effort to engage in good-faith negotiations or accommodations,” he said. “Instead, it appears to be another example of the administration’s blanket defiance of Congress’ constitutionally mandated responsibilities.” MATTHEW DALY AND
The severed head of a full-sized Pleistocene wolf has been discovered in eastern Siberia — and it’s still intact. Paleontologists believe the wolf, whose head had been preserved in permafrost for about 30,000 years, was fully grown at 2 to 4 years old when it died. A photo of the head shows it measures 15.7 inches long, which is notably bigger than the 9.1-to-11-inch length of the modern gray wolf’s head. A man who lives in the Abyisky district of Yakutia discovered the head last year. The Swedish Museum of Natural History plans to study the wolf’s DNA, fur and skull. The Pleistocene Epoch stretched from 2.6 million to 11,700 years ago and included the most recent ice age. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Trump: ‘I’d want to hear’ foreign dirt on ’20 rivals POLITICS President Trump said Wednesday that if a foreign power offered dirt on his 2020 opponent, he’d be open to accepting it and he’d have no obligation to call in the FBI. “I think I’d want to hear it,” Trump said in an interview with ABC News. The role of Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. in organizing a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer offering information on Hillary Clinton was a focus of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in 2016. Mueller documented Russian efforts to boost Trump’s campaign and undermine that of his Democratic rival. Trump repeatedly praised WikiLeaks in 2016 and celebrated information exposed by Russian hackers. Trump’s latest comments came a month after he pledged not to use information stolen by foreign adversaries in his 2020 reelection campaign, even as he wrongly insisted he hadn’t used such information to his benefit in 2016. Asked whether his advisers should accept information on an opponent from Russia, China or another nation or call the FBI this time, Trump said, “I think maybe you do both,” expressing openness to reviewing it. “I think you might want to listen,” he said. “There’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called, from a country — Norway — we have information on your opponent. Oh, I think I’d want to hear it.” ZEKE MILLER AND JILL COLVIN (AP)

Recent tourist deaths bring image problem to Dominican Republic
N.C. man pleads guilty to killing 3 Muslim students ERIKA SANTELICES (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
PUNTA CANA, D.R. The grounds and orchid-filled interior of the Grand Bahia Principe Resort appear half-empty. Dozens of unoccupied tables surround the buffet restaurant. The hotel boasts more than 400 rooms. But on Tuesday, only about 30 people relaxed — or tried to — on the private beach. Two of the six American tourists who have died mysteriously on the Caribbean island in the past year died at the Grand Bahia Principe — a fact that has not gone unnoticed among prospective customers since the news broke last week. Yet that didn’t deter some offseason guests — especially those who had paid in advance. “We were about to cancel our trip,” said Noemy Morales, a 67-year-old retiree from Texas who booked her trip months before the deaths became news. “But we wouldn’t be refunded, so I insisted we come,” she continued. “Our relatives back home told us to be careful, and that they would pray for us. As if they felt bad for us!” Morales’ concerns underscored a painful plight for the Dominican Republic. This country of azure waters and white sand beaches, which attracts more American visitors than France, is suddenly facing a potentially devastating image problem. “Unfortunately, the unrelated incidents coincided in timing,”

said André Van Der Horst, tourism adviser to the Dominican Republic government. “With social media today, we are exposed and require an immediate response to the current public relations dynamic, a new reality worldwide.” Since a newly engaged Maryland couple was found dead May 30, the country and its tourism industry have weathered an internet storm. An autopsy found that the couple died after their lungs filled with fluid, leading to respiratory failure, according to the national police. Four similar deaths have been reported at nearby hotels, and a growing number of claims have surfaced from people who say they were taken suddenly ill here.
Tourism’s impact Roughly 2.7 million Americans visit the Dominican Republic annually, accounting for 47% of all tourists. Overall, tourism directly and indirectly accounts for nearly 22% of the island’s economy. Paola Rainieri, president of the Dominican National Association of Hotels and Tourism, said she expects a drop in visitors this month after six U.S. tourists died in the last year. (TWP)
Adding to the spate of bad press: Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz was shot in the back late Sunday in an ambush at an outdoor restaurant and bar in Santo Domingo, the capital. Local authorities say the
tourists died of natural causes, and there is no proof of a trend. The State Department has not issued a travel warning, and U.S. authorities have not asserted any connection between the deaths or foul play. But Monday afternoon, the government launched the campaign “#BeFairWithDR” on social media. A Belgian couple lying on the beach Tuesday at the Grand Bahia Principe said they were mostly ignoring U.S. media reports. “Americans don’t have a great reputation traveling. They are quite delicate,” said 56-year-old Rudy Hugherbart. “The Dominican Republic is a beautiful place and we love it.” RACHELLE KRYGIER

HONG KONG Following a day of sit-ins, tear gas and clashes with police, Hong Kong students and civil rights activists vowed Wednesday to keep protesting a proposed extradition bill that has become a lightning rod for concerns over greater Chinese control and erosion of civil liberties in the former British colony. The violence marked a major escalation of the biggest political crisis in years for the semiautonomous Chinese territory and forced the delay of legislative debate on the contentious bill. College student Louis Wong said he considered the blockade of government headquarters and the Legislative Council a success because it appeared to prevent Beijing loyalists from advancing amendments to a pair of laws that would make it easier to send suspected criminals to China. “This is a public space and the police have no right to block us from staying here,” Wong said, surveying a garbage-strewn intersection in the Admiralty neighborhood that had been blocked off by security forces after protesters broke through a police cordon and entered the government complex. “We’ll stay until the government drops this law and [Chinese President] Xi Jinping gives up on trying to turn Hong Kong into just another city in China like Beijing and Shanghai,” he said. A weekend protest of the extradition measure drew hundreds of thousands of people, and Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said the peaceful rally had become a “blatant, organized riot.” Police Commissioner Stephen Lo Wai-chung said the “serious clashes” forced police to use pepper spray, bean bag rounds,

to fears that Hong Kong’s government is using public disturbance laws to intimidate protesters. The demonstrations pose a challenge to Xi, who has said he would not tolerate Hong Kong being used as a base to question the ruling Communist Party’s authority. But they are also giving a voice to youth in the territory who feel alienated by a political process dominated by the economic elite.
Under its “one country, two systems” framework, Hong Kong was supposed to be guaranteed the right to retain its own social, legal and political systems for 50 years following its handover from British rule in 1997. However, China’s Communist Party has been seen as increasingly reneging on that agreement by forcing through unpopular laws. A vote on the legislation is scheduled for June 20.

ENVIRONMENT Theresa May, Britain’s outgoing prime minister, on Wednesday announced plans to eliminate the country’s net contribution to climate change by 2050 as Europe’s effort to slow global warming picked up speed. The amendment to the 2008 Climate Change Act will intensify Britain’s push to drastically reduce carbon emissions ahead of a European Union summit next week that’s expected to address the bloc’s effort to tackle global warming. Though Britain plans to leave the EU, there is broad cross-party support in Parliament for the international fight against climate change. “Standing by is not an option,” May said. “Reaching net zero by 2050 is an ambitious target, but it is crucial that we achieve it to ensure we protect our planet for future generations.” While experts agree it won’t be possible to eliminate all emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, “net zero” would ensure that an equal amount of gas would be captured by natural means such as forests or artificial systems that suck carbon out of the atmosphere. Other major industrialized countries, such as France and Germany, are working on similar legislation to be passed this year. Smaller European countries, including Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands, already have the “net zero” target enshrined in domestic laws. GREGORY KATZ AND FRANK JORDANS (AP)

Stephen Curry, middle, and the Warriors head home down 3-2 against the Raptors.
RAPTORS AT WARRIORS | GAME 6: 9 TONIGHT, ABC
Uphill climb continues
After an incredible win and a devastating injury, Warriors still have lots of work to do NBA FINALS The Warriors were so moved by their brilliant Game 5 comeback Monday that Draymond Green declared it “the greatest” performance of their stellar five-year run in the NBA Finals. Trailing the Raptors by six points with less than three minutes to play, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined to hit three 3-pointers, Green blocked a potential game-winner at the buzzer, and the defending champs celebrated the improbable end to a night that saw Kevin Durant lost to an Achilles injury. Golden State staved off elimination, narrowing Toronto’s series lead to 3-2 and forcing a Game 6 tonight. “We could have thrown in the towel,” Green said. “We could have folded, but we didn’t. I said it before: I’ve never seen this group fold. And that stands true still.” The tricky thing about digging out of a 3-1 deficit, though, is that it takes a lot more than one
legendary performance. LeBron James needed three masterpieces to lead the 2016 Cavaliers to the only 3-1 comeback in NBA Finals history. In Game 5, he posted 41 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. In Game 6, 41 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists. In Game 7, he had 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists, plus an all-time chase-down block on Andre Iguodala. Golden State, in other words, still has plenty of work to do in this series. The comeback formula includes no margin for error, especially because Durant is done for the series and beyond. Curry, like James three years ago, must be spectacular. Thompson, too. The Warriors must get quality outside shooting from their supporting cast, and DeMarcus Cousins must continue to pick his spots scoring inside. A Green-led defense must keep Leonard off the free-throw line and continue to challenge Toronto’s shooters.

Durant reveals surgery Kevin Durant revealed Wednesday he had surgery for a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The Warriors’ star wrote on Instagram: “I wanted to update you all: I did rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY.” Durant sat out for a month, then played just 12 minutes Monday before he was injured again. (AP)
Taken together, that’s exhausting work in a series that has already left Golden State juggling multiple injuries, including Kevon Looney’s fracture in his chest/ rib cage, and obvious fatigue. It wasn’t surprising, then, that the Warriors quickly turned to Durant’s injury as a rallying point. “We do it for Kevin,” Thompson said. “It obviously inspires you to play harder knowing your best player can’t be out there. You think of him every time you dive for a loose ball or go for a

rebound, because I know him and I know how bad he wants to be out there. That’s why he was out there [in Game 5].” The Warriors should also benefit from a return to Oracle Arena, where they will play the final home game of a 47-year run in Oakland. Despite dropping Games 3 and 4 to Toronto in this series, Golden State is 45-10 (.818) at home in the playoffs since coach Steve Kerr’s arrival in 2014. Both teams have resisted the temptation to buckle in tense moments — Toronto when it rebounded from Game 2 with an emphatic Game 3 performance, and Golden State when it cheated death in Game 5. Thanks to their 2016 collapse, the Warriors also know that a Game 6 win would shift all of the scrutiny back to the Raptors for Game 7. For a team accustomed to always being at the center of the storm, that must be an uplifting thought. BEN GOLLIVER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

U.S. OPEN | FIRST ROUND TODAY: 12:30 TO 7:30 P.M., FS1; 7:30 TO 10:30 P.M., FOX
Who’ll win at Pebble Beach? The key to winning the U.S. Open, which begins today at Pebble Beach: don’t hit it into the rough. That may be overly simplistic, but staying on the fairway will go a long way at Pebble Beach, which features some of the smallest greens on tour. In the course’s five previous U.S. Opens, winning scores ranged from 2 over par (Jack Nicklaus, 1972) and even (Graeme McDowell, 2010) to Tiger Woods’ absurd 12 under in 2000. Here are this year’s favorites. MATT BONESTEEL (THE WASHINGTON POST)
8-1 odds to win
He has won four of the past eight majors and the previous two U.S. Opens. Only three other players — Willie Anderson (1903-05), Ben Hogan (1950-51) and Curtis Strange (1988-89) — have won consecutive U.S. Opens. Koepka, left, doesn’t have a whole lot of history at Pebble Beach — he has only played the Pro-Am once, tying for eighth in 2016 — but he didn’t have any history at Bethpage Black, either, and look what happened at the PGA Championship.
He held a three-stroke lead entering the final round of the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach but quickly imploded that Sunday with a triple bogey at No. 2 and a double at No. 3, ending up five strokes behind winner McDowell. He certainly knows the course, having won the Pro-Am twice and three other times finishing in the top five. If there’s a course on which Johnson (seven top-10s this season) could win his second major, Pebble Beach might be the best candidate.
He followed his missed cut at the PGA Championship with a respectable T-9 at the Memorial, one of his four top-10s this season. He also finished T-4 the last time Pebble Beach hosted the U.S. Open. At his peak was that win for the ages in 2000, when he was the only player to finish under par. Woods leads the PGA Tour in greens in regulation and ranks third in strokes gained: ball striking, which is computed by totaling the player’s total driving and greens in regulation.
People were jumping off the McIlroy train after his missed cut at the Memorial, but then he simply ran away from the field at last weekend’s Canadian Open, shooting a final-round 61 to win by seven strokes. The Memorial flameout clearly was just a blip, because McIlroy might be having his best season ever. He’s averaging 2.7 strokes gained per round. The last player who exceeded that number for a full season was Woods in 2009, right at the end of peak Tiger.
Payments as low as
The ERA of Nationals lefty Patrick Corbin over his past three games, including Tuesday’s, when he gave up a season-high seven runs in five innings in a 7-5 loss at the White Sox. In the previous two starts, he allowed 16 hits and nine earned runs in 7 ⅔ innings. The Nationals are 12-5 in their past 17 games, and three of those losses can be tied to Corbin’s struggles. (TWP)
The Dominican Republic’s chief prosecutor says six people, including alleged gunman Rolfy Ferreyra, have been detained in the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz. Authorities say a seventh suspect is being pursued in the shooting, which witnesses say was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars. (AP) 1986-2019

D.C.’s Antonia Tricarico captures music history in her new photo book BOOKS Plenty of documentaries, books and zines tell the stories of D.C. punk from the perspective of men. But why aren’t more women involved in the conversation? The question struck local photographer Antonia Tricarico as she was compiling her first book. “Frame of Mind: Punk Photos and Essays from Washington, DC,
and Beyond, 1997–2017,” released last week, tells the story of that era of D.C. punk rock through Tricarico’s images plus essays written by female musicians. “While editing the photos, I realized that I had heard a lot about music mostly from men and it was like, what if there is more to be discovered?” Tricarico says about the book, which she’ll discuss at Politics and Prose this weekend (5015 Connecticut Ave. NW; Sun., 3 p.m., free). Concert photos in the book feature seminal local acts

including Fugazi, Deep Lust and Priests, along with bigger touring names such as Joan Jett. Many of the photos were taken at D.C.-area venues, though some were shot in places around the
world (including Tricarico’s home country of Italy). Adding a personal touch are the 14 essays from punk’s trailblazing women — including Jett and Kristina Sauvage of Coup Sauvage & the Snips.
“Making music allows us to not only reflect our world but also imagine the world we want to see — one that’s way more brown, way more feminist, way more queer and way more fierce,” Sauvage writes in her essay. Tricarico will display 32 photographs from “Frame of Mind” at Lost Origins Gallery in an exhibit opening Saturday (3110 Mount Pleasant St.; opening reception, Sat., 6-9 p.m., free). Photo prints and copies of the book will be available for purchase. “The local music scene wasn’t just about music, it was a community of people,” Tricarico says. “Its presence was making D.C. a better place to live. Music had a specific message against gentrification, sexism, racism and so on.” STEPHANIE WILLIAMS (EXPRESS)

Every Tuesday in Express
When Scott Strasbaugh gets recognized on the street, it’s usually due to his appearance in “Zoolander” as a Finnish dwarf named Olaf. Fans shout, “Cool story, Hansel” when they see the Sterling, Va.-based actor, whose one line has become a catchphrase. Other fans remember the 4-foot-tall Strasbaugh as the lead singer in The Little Kingz, a heavy metal band that performed shows with Eminem and Linkin Park, or from his many roles on stages throughout the D.C. area. These days, Strasbaugh is spending time behind the scenes as the director of the Little Theatre of Alexandria’s production of “A Fox on the Fairway,” a lively comedy that takes place on a golf course (600 Wolfe St., Alexandria; through June 29, $21-$24). While he does like to hit the links — “I have a great short game, ha!” — Strasbaugh is opting for theater over golf on his D.C. dream day. I take the Metro to D.C. because I’m a people-watcher. I love staring at people and trying to figure out who they are and what they are trying to be. There are so many beautiful people and so many unique individuals, and so many odd characters, I don’t even stand out. On the Metro, I get to do the gawking for once.
When I get to D.C., I’ll go to Ben’s Chili Bowl to get a halfsmoke. I don’t like messy sandwiches, but the half-smoke is so freaking good, I can’t pass it up. Somewhere in my dream day, I put on a little baseball outfit and a baseball hat and shave my face and find a
My dad is a jeweler and I don’t know why, but he didn’t want me to follow in his footsteps and be a jeweler too. Maybe he thought we would fight? But I love diamonds and so I’d go to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and look at the Hope Diamond. It is remarkable. It’s 451/2 carats of this stunning blue, unbelievable, multifaceted piece of rock. Precious stones mean so much to people. They mean love between two people and a love of everything from the earth. I get choked up talking about it. For dinner I’d go to Sushi Taro. I like sitting at the bar because the chefs like to try things out on me. Sometimes beautiful goodness I didn’t order lands on my plate. That’s how you learn about food like Japanese unadon. It’s a bowl of rice with grilled eel, and it’s so good. Even if you don’t get free food, it’s such an experience to sit at the bar and see the sushi chefs making art on a plate. I’m a theater guy, so I’d obviously have to finish my day off with theater. Kennedy Center, Woolly Mammoth, Signature Theatre, Folger Theatre, Arena Stage — it doesn’t matter; all those places are amazing. I would end up with a nice glass of wine at one of these theaters and then see a dramatic, thought-provoking play. I’d also go see a movie. My favorite movie theater is the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, because they are completely about silence in the movie theater. Plus they serve you food at your seat, and there’s a full bar.

Q&A | RAPHAEL BOB-WAKSBERG
This is his brain on love Raphael Bob-Waksberg began writing “Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory” a decade ago — he just didn’t realize it at the time. Back then, before Bob-Waksberg gained acclaim for creating the animated Netflix series “BoJack Horseman,” the tales that now make up his short-story collection were stray concepts rattling around his brain. “I had some smaller pieces up on my blog, or I would write them as tweets,” he says. “Any way I had to get little ideas out.” One such idea: a satirical “missed connection” listing that Bob-Waksberg actually posted to Craigslist in 2013. In that fabricated ad, now immortalized in his book, a lost soul seeks the woman with whom he shared flirtatious, fleeting glances on a New York City train as the stops sailed by at an increasingly outlandish rate. “For months we sat on the train saying nothing,” the narrator says. “We survived on bags of Skittles sold to us by kids raising money for their basketball teams.” The book, which hit shelves Tuesday, features that yarn alongside similarly surreal stories of the heart. In one sobering parable, a husband finds refuge from his tedious marriage by venturing to another dimension. Another entry follows a couple as they fret over the socially acceptable number of goats to sacrifice at their wedding. The mind behind these tragicomic tales will speak Thursday at Politics and Prose. THOMAS FLOYD (EXPRESS) The stories in this collection mix up the structure and worldbuilding. How did you decide to play with the format like that? Talking to my publisher, I
described it as a mixtape or a scrapbook, almost. I wanted it to feel like each thing was a little different and it didn’t just feel like pieces of a larger novel.
A lot of times when I’m thinking about storytelling, both in television and these stories, I think about format first. What would be a fun way to tell a story? What’s a new way in or a way where the reader immediately goes, “Oh, this is kooky”? Then the second step is finding an emotional hook that justifies that storytelling. What drew you to love as the theme running through the book? When I got the book deal, I had maybe half a book, maybe a third of the book, so I had a lot of writing left to do. And there was a lot of thought of, “What is this collection about? What is a story that is appropriate for this collection?” I arrived primarily on the idea of these are all love stories of a type. That’s obviously a very broad designation, because loves can mean a lot of different things — there’s romantic loves,
there’s family love, there’s a love between friends. I wanted to keep it loose, but I thought that was a good rubric. How did you manage your time, putting together this collection while also working on “BoJack”? Oh, God, I didn’t — I’m drowning, man! No, it’s nice sometimes to have a couple plates spinning at the same time because you can go back and forth. If I was stuck on something on “BoJack,” I would open up my book document and go, “Well, OK, maybe I can work on one of these things for a little bit to distract me.” And vice versa — if I got stuck on a story, I could switch to a different story or I could open up a script and start noodling with that. How is production on “BoJack” Season 6 coming along? We are in the middle of it — I think people are going to like it. We tried some new things out with how the season is structured, which I think at least was interesting for us. It’s the same
old “BoJack” that people love with some surprises, as we try to do every season. You’re also co-creating the upcoming Amazon animated series “Undone.” What can you say about that show? I think people are going to be really surprised at the kind of show that it is, and how it looks and how it moves and how it feels. There’s really nothing like it on television. What’s the next project you’d want to take on, now that you’ve written your first book? I wouldn’t mind going on a vacation and replenishing a little bit, but I just want to keep trying new things. I’d love to write another book, I’d love to write a movie or a Broadway musical or an immersive interactive theater experience — I don’t know. I want to keep busy, but first not be so busy.

weekendpass Q&A | ELAINE WELTEROTH
It’s time for her to tell her own story Preschool, small-town California, Elaine Welteroth’s earliest memory: Her teacher had just plopped down a pile of magazines, glossy-paged building materials to be used to construct a collage. Cut out photos of people who resemble your family, the students were instructed, and paste them onto a sheet of paper. The trouble, Welteroth found, was that the pages were filled with white moms, white babies — “white paper families,” she recalls. “I was the only brown kid in a sea of white faces, flipping through magazines and realizing for the first time that I was black and therefore I was other. And that memory illuminates the power of media and its impact on our sense of identity.” In 2016, at age 29, Welteroth was named editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, making her the youngest person to hold that position at a Condé Nast publication. She’s credited with transforming the magazine into a socially conscious news source that showcased a diverse range of skin tones, hair textures, body types and viewpoints. Since departing the magazine last year, she joined “Project Runway” as a judge and wrote a just-released memoir, “More Than Enough,” which she’ll discuss at Sidwell Friends on Saturday. ANGELA HAUPT (FOR EXPRESS) What’s your book’s origin story, and why did now feel like the right time for a memoir? As a journalist, I spent the last 10 years of my career telling women’s stories because I genuinely believe that there are gems in the stories women never tell, and that’s really what fueled my work at Teen Vogue. And I sort of looked up and realized, by 30 I had this incredible opportunity to make the magazine I always needed when I was younger, and now it was time for me to take my own advice and tell my own story. Especially now, because I’m part of a generation that’s writing our life story in real time on social media, but we only ever share and see the shiniest slice of our success story. And while that can be aspirational, I think it can also be detrimental. Because ultimately, we’re selling lies about success. And I just felt
like, as a role model for what a leader can look like as a young black woman, I had more to share than what could fit in a tweet or Instagram caption. Throughout “More Than Enough,” you reference the term that Shonda Rhimes coined: FOD, or “First. Only. Different.” What kind of pressure comes with that identifier? It comes with this feeling that you’re there to represent for a community of people, and that carries a certain amount of pressure. But I think of it as an opportunity, frankly. I see it as a responsibility to not just be first but to make sure you’re the first of many. For a lot of us FODs, what helped us climb the ranks was assimilation — trying to blend in, wearing these masks so you can assert your authority and gain credibility. All of those
GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
things are natural survival tactics, but it takes removing those masks and really speaking from an authentic place to do your most transformative work. You’ll be in conversation with inspiring women throughout your book tour, including activist Brittany Packnett in D.C. How did you cultivate your lineup of guests? Before I even put pen to paper on my book, I decided it was going to be a tool that would put me in conversation with my community of women. I wanted to use my book tour as an opportunity to bring to life all the off-therecord conversations I’ve had with my mentors over the years,
and my peers, and start a larger collective conversation. Brittany Packnett is an extraordinary educator and activist, a really important voice of our time and for my generation. Her podcast [“Pod Save the People,” on which Packnett joins host DeRay Mckesson] is one of my favorites, so I basically talk to her in the shower every day. And now I’m going to have the opportunity to sit with her in front of a room full of women — I cannot wait to hit the road with my girls. Why was “Project Runway” the right next step for you? It’s such a beloved show, and to have the opportunity to be a part of reinvigorating it and bringing
it into the present by connecting it to what’s happening in culture and what’s happening politically was endlessly exciting to me. “Project Runway” is really a celebration of creativity. My goal was to weave in conversations around diversity and inclusion and how fashion is a platform for social change. The episode that I’m most proud of [the social cause-focused “What Do You Care About?” that aired in May] really challenged the designers to use fashion as a platform to show us what they stand for.

The art barge will display a sign created by conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas that reads, “They are US is them.” You can’t board the barge, but you can participate in site-specific “activations” when it docks at several ports, including Anacostia Park, Capitol Riverfront and the Georgetown Waterfront. On the land beside the river, people will be invited to write down what freedom means to them on lawn signs. “What I love about the lawn sign activation is that it’s something anyone can participate in, at any age, or any political leaning. Whatever you feel is OK,” Goodall says. “Those lawn signs will get displayed in view of the barge so that not only are they an interactive component, but they’re actually part of the exhibit.” This year’s By the People festival also includes artist talks, plus a day of civic dialogues focused on the future of transportation,
EXHIBITS Starting Saturday, a very unusual broadcast will stream live to TVs at a downtown hotel and a Union Market event space. A mashup of music and videos — including talks by black intellectuals, news footage and home videos — “BLKNWS” aims to capture the full complexity of African American life and culture and to counter dominant media narratives. The piece, by artist and filmmaker Kahlil Joseph, who has directed music videos for Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé, is just one example of the worldclass art landing in unusual places around D.C. for this year’s By the People festival. “BLKNWS will be streaming to the Eaton Hotel and AutoShop at Union Market for the duration of the festival,” says Kate Goodall, CEO of Halcyon, the arts and social enterprise incubator behind the event. “That’s a big part of the festival, the accessibility — we want people to encounter these works in surprising places, in public spaces that aren’t necessarily in the gilded institutions.” Launched last year as a fourday affair, By the People is expanding to nine days this year, opening on Saturday and running through June 23. It’s also spreading to Prince George’s County in Maryland and Reston, Va., with the goal of bringing the festival’s mix of cutting-edge art and community dialogue to as many people as possible, Goodall says. “In addition to being free,

food, sports and entertainment. The event, at Eaton Hotel on June 20, will include presentations by representatives from Lyft and Virgin Hyperloop One. “I think setting the dialogue a little bit in the future helps to free us, at least temporarily, from the intractable problems of the present,” Goodall says. Goodall hopes locals can get to multiple sites over the festival’s nine days, but if you only have time for one, make it the Arts and Industries Building, she says.
quickly for you to read. “I have a feeling it’ll be one of the most popular pieces of the festival because it’s so interactive and so Instagrammable,” Goodall says. “It gives a positive affirmation for the future, which, I think, is something we all need right now.”
The cavernous space will be filled with festival showstoppers, such as “Walking on Clouds,” a site-specific piece by New Yorkbased conceptual artist Jonathan Rosen. Rosen’s piece consists of a room filled with fog, where viewers are invited to take a picture of themselves in a mirror. Later, when you look at the photo, you’ll see your face underneath a phrase such as “I could be king,” “I could be loved,” “I could be seen” — messages that had been scrolling by on the mirror too

The barely perceptible rotation of this (unintentionally) retro restaurant affords ample opportunity to contemplate a variety of views. If you begin your journey at the host stand, the first thing you’ll see, at surprisingly close range, are the balconies of adjacent apartment buildings. No need to rush — you’ve got plenty of time to admire the outdoor furniture of military contractors. Next, your table will point you toward the majestic expanses of the Pentagon’s many parking lots. As you continue your journey, the HVAC units of nearby low-rise office buildings rotate into view, framed by the mesmerizing flow of traffic on I-395. About halfway through is the main event: Way off in the distance, if you squint and the weather’s clear, you can see the Washington Monument as well as Reagan-bound airplanes. It’s OK to be jealous — the people onboard are getting a much better view than you, and probably better food, too.
You know how sometimes, when you’re taking in a grand view, you think, “Gosh, this is great, but what I really want is to see this exact same thing on a nearby screen?” The folks behind the Masonic memorial have you covered. On the top floor of the tower, there’s a screen hooked up to a livestream from a camera that’s a few feet away on the balcony. Sure, you can walk out onto that balcony and see the view directly with your eyeballs, but unmediated experiences are so last century. Sadly, this livesteam is not yet available online — perhaps the Masons don’t want to undercut the tower’s $18 admission. In any case, the view is somewhat underwhelming — unless you’re a big fan of nicely mown lawns and suburban trees. More interesting is the memorial’s odd assemblage of Orientalist costumes, which your guide will make you look at en route to the top of the tower.

The Chantilly, Va., branch of the Smithsonian National Air and Space museum boasts many fascinating sights, but the view from the observation tower isn’t one of them. As you gaze at a crazy quilt of cow fields and highways, you may find yourself asking how this supposedly free museum gets away with charging $15 for parking. Occasionally, a Dullesbound airplane flies by, and you can almost see the dismayed faces of passengers as they realize they are nowhere near downtown D.C. Before heading back to the main museum, be sure to check out the observation tower’s display of early air traffic control technology and the accompanying FAA kiosk that explains to reluctant taxpayers why an upgrade might be in order.

The observation deck at the top of the Central Place Plaza skyscraper delivers just what’s promised: vertiginous views of all the D.C. landmarks, from the Kennedy Center to Congress, and all the way east to the Basilica. Less exciting are the tower’s westward views, though a touch-screen display tries its best to make Northern Virginia sound exciting. “As defense contractors associated with the CIA start setting up in Tysons, shopping malls and other leisure attractions follow.” (Emphasis theirs.) This hyperlocal history probably appeals to what appears to be The View of D.C.’s key demographic: Arlington residents, who get in free, and the outof-town visitors they bring along (and who must pay the full $21). Like the Masonic memorial, The View also caters to people who prefer simulacrums of experiences to the real thing. A virtual reality ride called “HoverDC” gives you the feeling of zooming over all the major D.C. landmarks that allow drone photography — which is to say, none of the ones that matter.

Washington Monument 2 15th St. NW

It’s a shame the Washington Monument has been closed so much lately. While this Egyptianish obelisk bears only a tenuous connection to America’s first president, it’s an excellent beacon for tourists — a landmark as well as a great way to get the lay of the Mall when you first arrive. When I visited for my second-ever Staycationer column, I found that the Washington Monument had plenty to offer locals as well as visitors to D.C. In addition to unparalleled views (albeit through small, thickpaned windows), you get to go on a magic elevator ride — one where, with the push of a button, opaque glass turns clear, revealing some of the nifty memorial stones in the middle of the structure. Why the rangers don’t leave the windows clear for the full ride is a mystery. What are they hiding? Could this be the plot for the next “National Treasure” movie? Perhaps we’ll find out when the monument reopens (supposedly) in August.

Height of view: About 120 feet The best seats at this rooftop bar, at the southern corner, are roped off for event attendees and VIPs. These lucky folks get unparalleled views of the entire Mall, and they are so close to the Washington Monument, they could almost hit it with paper airplanes. Don’t be jealous, though — the west-facing balcony delivers views nearly as scenic. On a recent weekday visit, I got a first-row seat to see the sun set behind the White House. This was thanks to a kindly stranger who offered up her stool when she saw me struggling with my enormous novelty cocktail, the “Bi-Partisan” — actually a pair of drinks, one red and one blue, balanced on a huge scale of justice. All around me, a friendly crowd of locals and business travelers played “spot the government sniper” while I watched the silhouettes of hard-working Treasury Department employees through their office windows. Their diligence inspired me to work overtime, too, so I ordered another drink — “The President’s Book of Secrets,” a hollow book containing a glass skull and a flask of date-infused rum. And it was delicious.

When Donald Trump leased the Old Post Office building from the federal government in 2013, he agreed to keep the building’s historic bell tower open to the public. But how to keep the hotel’s well-heeled guests from mingling with the sweaty masses? The answer lies in a special entrance for common tourists followed by a maze of long hallways seemingly designed to segregate the hoi polloi from esteemed guests of the hotel. Along the way, you’ll find historic exhibits that also declare the beauty and glamour of the Trump Hotel. You won’t be able to make that assessment for yourself, because the glass elevator that overlooks the lobby has been aggressively frosted, perhaps to keep tower visitors from playing “spot the Saudi lobbyist.” After another long hallway and yet another elevator, you finally reach the tower, and the view doesn’t disappoint, as long as you ignore the smudged plastic and thick safety bars. Unless, of course, you want to see the White House (or Congress) behind bars, in which case, this is the view for you.

Singer Kim Petras is starting to reveal more and more about her personal life in her songs.
Kim Petras tells it like she really is The rising pop star has added sad songs to her mix, but she isn’t forsaking the fun
MUSIC German-born pop star Kim Petras used to sing about living in the lap of luxury. Her breakthrough song, 2017’s “I Don’t Want It at All,” was an infectious, “Material Girl”-like bop about the thrills of a wellheeled lifestyle — summers in the Hamptons, sprawling closets full of designer clothes — but one that was worlds away from Petras’ reality. “I wrote all these songs about what I wanted my life to be, and really glamorized my life,
while living on my futon and a shared apartment with four people,” says Petras, 26. “And now I feel like I’ve become a lot more confident.” That confidence is apparent in Petras’ recent string of songs, which she’ll perform at The Fillmore on Saturday as part of her first headlining tour. The delicate pop number “Broken,” released in April, set the tone for Petras’ new era of music. It was a complete about-face from her previous single, the party starter “1, 2, 3 dayz up,” which featured
electro-pop producer SOPHIE. The chance to vent about being heartbroken over an ex was therapeutic for Petras — but a feeling of guilt came along with it. “A part of me felt a little bad for making sad songs because I feel so blessed,” says Petras, who moved to L.A. when she was 19. “It’s nice to tour, drop singles and make music as my job. I don’t take it for granted and I’m not sitting around going, ‘Aw, poor me,’ but that’s what I was going through personally.” There are still plenty of funloving hits in the latest mix, including “Do Me,” which is, as Petras puts succinctly, “a song about being a ho!” and “Got My Number,” in which she shares a phone number and invites listeners to call her “for a good time.” (The number was actually real and belonged to her friend and collaborator Jesse Saint John.) So far she’s released all her work independently, managing to get more than 125 million streams online without a major label push. For Petras, being authentic goes beyond wearing her heart on her sleeve and maintaining her creative freedom. She’s also an inspiration for the LGBTQ
community. At 16, she made international headlines as the youngest person in the world to undergo sexual reassignment surgery. She makes a point to not let her identity overshadow her art, though she’s still a visible champion for the trans community. “I want to be a role model for young trans kids,” says Petras, who was nominated this year for GLAAD’s Outstanding Music Artist award. “My whole teen life was dedicated to saying, ‘Look, I’m transgender, I’m a normal person.’ I always want to keep fighting for the LGBTQ community because that’s been my home.” Meanwhile, Petras is updating her sound, but not how the music is supposed to feel. “Pop music, to me, has always been an escape,” Petras says. “[My music] is supposed to take people out of their everyday problems and make them forget if they feel s---ty. But there are also a bunch of party bangers, and I hope that people just have fun.” STEPHANIE WILLIAMS (EXPRESS)

You could call the music that the ever-evolving collective Snarky Puppy makes “jazz,” but that wouldn’t tell the full story. The band produces globe- and genretrotting instrumental music that showcases both individual players (as many as 19 on this year’s “Immigrance”) and the group as a whole. That makes Snarky Puppy a good fit to headline one of the DC Jazz Festival’s marquee events.

Brandi Carlile has become Americana’s latest star, thanks to her Grammy-winning 2018 album “By the Way, I Forgive You.” Her music has evolved over the years but the album still features her rootsy, country-ish sound, best exemplified by the uplifting ballad “The Joke.” Carlile will also soon lead a new supergroup called The Highwomen with Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby, ensuring her place at the genre’s forefront.
Playwright and director Goldie Patrick pays homage to the women of hip-hop with “HERstory.” The play follows a personified female version of hip-hop, known as H.E.R. (inspired by Common’s 1994 song “I Used to Love H.E.R.”), who is rushed to the hospital with lifethreatening injuries. Five women, each representing an era of hiphop, show up to decide H.E.R.’s fate.

Living-Donor Liver Transplant Summit More than 14,000 people are waiting for a liver transplant. We found that, when asked, 70% of people1 would become a living donor for someone they know.
Yet thousands still die waiting for a transplant.
On Friday, June 14, WebMD and the UPMC Living-Donor Liver Transplant Program will announce survey results on the attitudes and perceptions about liver disease and living donor transplantation that keep thousands of patients from receiving a second chance at life. Follow @WebMD on Twitter to join the eventâ€™s livestream at 9:00a.m. ET. To find out more about living donation, recent medical advances, and how you can save a life, visit www.webmd.com/livingdonor.
This is part of an educational collaboration between WebMD and UPMC. 1
Based on over 4,600 U.S. residents.

The changing city upon a hill ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ soulfully muses on gentrification
‘Mostly Dead Things’ brings Florida to life
FILM “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” began as a pipe dream of a movie pitch, from a high school dropout filmmaker and a star with little experience beyond the student theater stage. “It felt almost insurmountable,” director Joe Talbot says, “the odds of us being able to make this movie.” The project began to gain steam in 2015, when Talbot and actor Jimmie Fails, whose life story inspired the movie, launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film. But the childhood friends first discussed the concept over a decade ago, when they were teenagers strolling through the hills of San Francisco. “Just walking and talking — that’s how we come up with everything,” Fails says. “It was a joke at first, literally. I was just telling him about my life story, and he was like, ‘Wow, let’s make a movie about that!’ ” Eventually, Oscar darling A24 signed on to distribute the film, Brad Pitt joined as a producer, and Talbot won the best director prize at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Now the film is opening in D.C. on Friday as part of an expanding national rollout. Told with grandeur, soulful style and an understated comic sensibility, the film follows a fictionalized version of Fails (played by himself) as he, with the help of his loyal friend Montgomery (Jonathan Majors), tries to reclaim a Victorian home built

by his grandfather. In doing so, the character hopes to find his place in a city consumed by the sprawl of Silicon Valley. Fails, in real life, spent the early days of his childhood at a similar home in the city’s Fillmore District, living there with his extended family before his aunt lost ownership of the house when he was 4. The upheaval scattered his family to housing projects across the city, though he would return to the old home from time to time and reflect on a transformed neighborhood with a dwindling black population. In addition to starring in the film, Fails shares a story credit with Talbot, who co-wrote the script with Rob Richert. “Jimmie is the best storyteller that I’ve ever met,” Talbot says. “It wasn’t even just the things he had been through in his life, but it was also just the way he was able to contextualize it and tell
“You have this story being told through the eyes of a black man, but everybody is able to understand it.” TICHINA ARNOLD, on her movie “The Last Black Man in San Francisco”
it as a compelling story.” To veteran actors such as Rob Morgan, who plays Fails’ father, James Sr., and Tichina Arnold, who plays his aunt Wanda, a movie from a first-time filmmaker with an unknown lead actor represented a roll of the dice. But the script’s poignant meditation on gentrification struck a chord for the pair, as did a story that tapped into more universal themes of friendship, family and self-acceptance.
“It’s not often that scripts come across our desks that are written so poetic and so honest from our perspective, as a black man and a black woman in Hollywood,” Morgan says. “Even if it’s a wellaccomplished writer-director that has 15 films under their belt.” “You have this story being told through the eyes of a black man, but everybody is able to understand it,” Arnold adds. The film ultimately is a bittersweet love letter to a bygone time and place, scrawled by two San Francisco natives who have a complicated relationship with their hometown, and an understanding that deep affection can be the precursor to heartbreak. “There’s so many different things that you can pick up on — it’s really just about whatever you can relate to the most, I suppose,” Fails says. “It all starts leading the way with, you know, just leading with love.” THOMAS FLOYD (EXPRESS)

BOOK REVIEW For anyone whose opinion of Florida and its residents largely depends on social media and those mean-spirited “Florida Man” headlines, Kristen Arnett’s “Mostly Dead Things” may come as a disappointment. The central characters in this sad and funny book, which came out last week, are recognizable not as felonious stereotypes but as flesh-and-blood human beings. That their business involves copious amounts of flesh and blood is only as weird as a reader wants it to be. Set in Central Florida, “Mostly Dead Things” is narrated by Jessa-Lynn Morton, who assumed operations of the family taxidermy shop after her father shot himself. Six months later, she is trying to rescue her business and family, which includes a brother, Milo, whose ambition extends no further than his next beer, and a mother, Libby, who creates pornographic art from the inventory of animal parts. Most of all, Arnett skillfully and humanely captures the agony and confusion of living through a loved one’s suicide. Jessa-Lynn oscillates between honoring her father’s memory and railing against it, between trying to fill the emptiness created by his final act and being swallowed by it. Peace and acceptance are fleeting and anger and depression are relentless in Arnett’s smart, empathetic novel. JAKE CLINE (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

trending “While Tom Hanks talks spades, bid whist & Oakland, Tim Allen basically goes the route of ‘The only thing I like black is my coffee.’ ” @WKAMAUBELL, criticizing actor Tim Allen, bottom, for his apparent lack of interest during an interview with blogger Xilla Valentine. When Valentine tests Allen and “Toy Story 4” co-star Tom Hanks’ knowledge of spades and bid whist — card games that are popular in black communities — Allen seems to shut down, asking, “Should I get a cup of coffee?” That didn’t sit well with viewers who were reminded of a 2013 interview he did with The Tampa Bay Times, in which Allen said he should be allowed to use the N-word whenever he likes.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have a plan in the making, but you’re not at liberty to share any part of it yet — no matter how much other people ask. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Inquiring minds may be your greatest roadblock today; if you can get past those who simply want to know too much, you can progress quickly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) A long-term conflict may be coming to an end, and this gives you room to breathe a bit — and to maneuver more freely as well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You needn’t state your case today in any terms but those you most understand; what’s important is that you believe what you are saying. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may be in line for a promotion or other work-related reward today, but don’t put all your eggs into this one basket.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You and a friend may be at odds today over something that is really quite trivial. This is an exercise in futility. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may have to sift through information very carefully today to make sure that what you have is updated and usable in current efforts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift seem to have settled their longtime feud with a plate of cookies, Page Six reported. Perry posted a photo on Instagram on Tuesday of a plate of chocolate chip cookies — presumably sent by Swift — with the words “peace at last” written in frosting on the plate. The singer captioned it: “Feels good,” tagging Swift in the post. Swift responded by commenting with a string of hearts. Last May, Perry sent Swift an olive branch with a handwritten note, which was thought at the time to be the official end to their feud. (EXPRESS)
