A Texas Filibuster Goes Viral
An 11-hour speech on abortion rights vaults state senator to fame

As she spoke late into the night, railing against proposed abortion restrictions, a former Texas teen mom catapulted from little-known junior state senator to national political superstar in pink tennis shoes. Wendy Davis needed last-minute help from shrieking supporters to run out the clock on the special session of the state Legislature and kill the bill, but her old-fashioned ﬁlibuster earned her widespread praise from fellow abortion-rights supporters — including a salute from President Barack Obama. Davis was on her feet for more than 12 hours Tuesday — actively speaking most of that time — as Democrats sought to use her onewoman marathon speech to derail a bill that would have closed nearly every abortion clinic in the nation’s second most populous state. As a midnight deadline loomed and Davis continued to talk, politi-

Ariel Castro to Undergo Competency Evaluation The speech by Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis, left, late into Tuesday night is cheered by abortion-rights advocates.
What’s Next Gov. Rick Perry is calling for the Texas Legislature to meet in a second special session to pass restrictions on abortion after the first such effort died following Tuesday nights filibuster. The announcement gives Republicans another crack at passing sweeping anti-abortion rules that would close nearly all clinics performing the procedure. (AP)
cal junkies from coast to coast tuned in via Internet, and Davis’ Twitter followers ballooned from around 1,200 to more than 79,000. Soon, photos of her shoes were everywhere and #StandWithWendy was trending. All this for a 50-yearold Harvard-trained attorney who was once dismissed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry as a “show horse.” Davis’ ﬁlibuster ultimately lasted about 11 hours before Republicans complained she had strayed
off topic and cut her off. But that prompted a lengthy debate with Democrats and deafening protests from hundreds of orange-clad abortion-rights activists in the gallery that spilled past the midnight deadline to kill all pending legislation. “Thanks to the powerful voices of thousands of Texans, #SB5 is dead,” Davis tweeted Wednesday. “An incredible victory for Texas women and those who love them.” JIM VERTUNO AND WILL WEISSERT (AP)
Spying on Spuds: Experiments have begun in Oregon aimed at using unmanned aircraft to help perk up potatoes. The Federal Aviation Administration recently authorized the use of drones equipped with small infrared cameras to fly over Oregon State University potato fields in search of unhealthy plants, such as those that don’t have enough water or fertilizer. A drone today typically costs $10,000 to $15,000. (AP)
A man charged with holding three women captive in his Cleveland home for more than a decade will undergo an evaluation Castro to determine whether he is mentally competent to stand trial, a judge ordered Wednesday. Judge Michael Russo said the examination of Ariel Castro, 52, will likely be Thursday, the judge said. (AP)

Sources: Al-Qaeda changes its tactics in wake of NSA leaks Washington U.S. intelligence agencies are scrambling to salvage their surveillance of al-Qaeda and other terrorists who are working frantically to change how they communicate after National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden leaked details of two NSA spying programs. It’s an electronic game of cat-and-mouse that could have deadly consequences if a plot is missed or a terrorist operative manages to drop out of sight. Terrorist groups had always taken care to avoid detection — by using anonymous email accounts, and multiple cellphones or by avoiding electronic communications at all, in the case of Osama bin Laden. But there were some methods of communication, such as using Skype video teleconferencing software, thinking those options were safe, according to U.S. counterterrorism ofﬁcials who follow the groups and spoke anonymously. Two U.S. intelligence ofﬁcials said members of virtually every terrorist group are attempting to change how they communicate, based on what they are reading in the media, to hide from U.S. surveillance. It is the ﬁrst time intelli-
Missing in Moscow Moscow’s main airport was swarmed by journalists from around the globe Wednesday, but the man they were looking for — National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden — was nowhere to be seen. On Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin said that Snowden was in the transit area of Sheremetyevo Airport. If that’s true, Snowden has effectively lived a life of airport limbo since his weekend flight from Hong Kong. Adding to the uncertainty, Ecuador’s foreign minister said Wednesday it could take months to decide whether to grant asylum to Snowden. (AP)
gence ofﬁcials have described which groups are reacting to the leaks. Privacy activists are skeptical of the claims. “I assume my communication is being monitored,” said Andrea Prasow, senior counterterrorism counsel for Human Rights Watch. “I would be shocked if terrorists didn’t also assume that and take steps to protect against it,” she said.

Nation gathers as health of Mandela, 94, declines further Johannesburg
South A fricans were torn on Wednesday between the desire not to lose a critically ill Nelson Mandela, who defined the aspirations of so many of his compatriots, and resignation that the beloved former prisoner and president is approaching the end of his life. The sense of anticipation and foreboding about 94-year-old Mandela’s fate has grown since late Sunday, when South African ofﬁcials said the condition of the statesman, who was hospitalized in Pretoria on June 8, had deteriorated. A tide of tributes has built on social media and in messages and ﬂowers outside the hospital and Mandela’s home. On Wednesday, about 20 children posted a card at the hospital and recited a poem. “Hold on, old man,” was one line, according to the South African Press Association. In recent days, international leaders, celebrities, athletes and others have praised Mandela, not

just as the man who steered South Africa through its tense transition from white racist rule to democracy two decades ago, but as a symbol of sacriﬁce and reconciliation. For many South Africans, Mandela’s decline is a far more personal matter, echoing the protracted and emotionally draining process of losing one of their own relatives. Matthew Rusznyah, 9, stopped outside Mandela’s home in the Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton. “We came because we care about Mandela being sick, and we

Mass Protests Turn Violent at Brazil Soccer Game Belo Horizonte, Brazil Brazilian protesters and police clashed Wednesday outside a stadium hosting a Confederations Cup soccer match, with thousands of demonstrators trying to march on the site confronting police firing tear gas and rubber bullets. Protesters picked up tear gas canisters and lobbed them back at police, along with a shower of rocks. A dense fog of the acrid gas enveloped the mass of protesters,
Backstory The wave of protests that hit Brazil began as opposition to transportation fare hikes, then expanded to a laundry list of causes including anger at high taxes, poor services and high World Cup spending, before coalescing around the issue of rampant government corruption. It has become the largest eruption of protests that Latin America’s biggest nation has seen in two decades. (AP)
just hundreds of yards away from the stadium where Brazil was playing Uruguay in a semiﬁnal match of the warm-up tournament for next year’s World Cup. It’s the latest protest to turn violent as Latin America’s biggest nation has been hit by nationwide protests since June 17. Elsewhere in Brazil the situation was mostly calm, in part because Brazil’s congress shelved legislation that was a target of nationwide protests. (AP)
wish we could put a stop to it, like snap our ﬁngers,” he said. “But we can’t. It’s how life works.” His mother, Lee Rusznyah, said Mandela had made the world a better place. Dan Lehman, an American academic, chose a jogging route on Wednesday morning that passed by the hospital where Mandela is being treated. “I was just going out for my morning run down here and come to pay my respects to the greatest man in the world,” he said.

Escalators on the Rise A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles At Metro, we know that escalators are an important part of your travel experience. Many Metrorail stations on our system are deeper than those in other cities and, when an escalator is out of service, it places a burden on riders and makes taking Metro seem less convenient. About two years ago, we embarked on an aggressive program to get our aging ﬂeet of escalators — the largest of VcnigVch^ihnhiZb^ci]ZLZhiZgc=Zb^he]ZgZ·WVX`idV state of good repair. You’ve probably seen large plywood panels around some escalators as you pass through the system. The plywood means that the escalator is either being replaced or “rehabilitated,” a process that changes every key component of the unit, including the motor, controller, steps, handrails and safety sensors. Our efforts are delivering real results for riders. For ﬁve consecutive months (November - March) we exceeded our target of 89% “escalator availability” and this statistic has been tracking consistently higher than last year and the year before. In March, we achieved the highest escalator availability rate of any single month since August 2008, with 92% of our 588 escalators in service during operating hours. Of those escalators that are out of service, about half are going through rehabilitation, and many of the others are due to activation of safety switches – which means they are working as designed. Our compliance with preventive maintenance needs reached an all time high during the ﬁrst quarter of the year, meaning that the work to keep escalators healthy and reliable is happening when it’s supposed to. And, as additional evidence that our approach is working, the time it takes to get an escalator back in service following an outage improved 43%, thanks in part to the addition of 18 new specialized mechanics last year, as well as expanding the use of new computer monitoring tools to notify our Escalator Control Center when units go out of service. Of course, none of this matters if the escalator you use is one of the eight-out-of-100 that might be out of service at any time. Rest assured, we are not yet satisﬁed and will continue id^begdkZ#AVhinZVg!lZ^chiVaaZYWgVcYcZlZhXVaVidghVi ;d\\n7diidbVcY9jedci8^gXaZ»hhdji]ZcigVcXZ!VcYcZl escalators are currently being installed at Pentagon station. By 2020, we plan to replace up to 128 additional escalators — our least reliable — at stations across the system.
It’s Summer! Dress for Success (and Safety)! It’s ﬁnally summer in the nation’s capital — time to swap our overcoats and duck boots for clothes that are light, loose and comfortable. And for those of you whose summer wardrobe includes open-toed shoes, ﬂip-ﬂops or rubberized shoes, we have some friendly advice to help you stay safe in the Metro system. You may be surprised to learn that half of all customer accidents on Metrorail are escalator-related slips, trips and falls. Your comfortable summer footwear can pose a safety hazard on Metro escalators, where they can easily get snagged in the moving parts and cause injury. So we hope you’ll apply a bit of extra caution along with your sunscreen and follow some basic, common-sense tips for riding our escalators. Think of these as “walking” points.
These are actual shoes that tangled with a Metro escalator — and lost.

Will July 5 Travelers Get Caught in Holiday Traffic? I am driving south from Boston to D.C. during the late afternoon/evening of July 5. Do you anticipate that most travelers will be at their destinations by then and trafﬁc will be light? With July 4 on a Thursday, I think this is going to be like a Thanksgiving scenario. Many people are going to create a four-day weekend and hit the road on Wednesday afternoon and evening. That would make Friday afternoon/evening a relatively good time to start a getaway along the East Coast. But I would watch out for some beach-bound traffic if taking Interstate 95 south from Boston. A route that avoids the coast might be better. I’m doing the opposite drive, D.C. to Boston, also on July 5, and would love to hear any comments or guesses on what trafﬁc might be like. My take is that you should be in pretty good shape heading north on July 5. I’m not saying it will be smooth sailing. There will still be rush hours, though probably much lighter than normal. There are work
zones in the middle of Delaware on I-95 and on the New Jersey Turnpike. And western Connecticut is always a mess for drivers.
Trafﬁc seems to have become worse over the past few months when using the Wilson Bridge to get from Maryland to Virginia. Is this a temporary or permanent change, and what factors are contributing to the increased congestion? There’s no change in the lane setup, no new work zones — nothing I can see that could account for this other than increased traffic volume. Folks have written in to confirm that they’re in this congestion, but they have no explanation for it. Drivers are mystified about the cause of it. It has been four years since the fatal Red Line accident and the policy that trains go all the way to the start of the platform. Does Metro plan to install any signage on long platforms informing visitors that they should move to the middle of the
Dr. Gridlock offers commuter advise online at washingtonpost.com.
Virginia to Convert Beltway Shoulder to Rush-Hour Lane McLean, Va. The left shoulder on the Capital Beltway’s inner loop will be converted into a rush-hour travel lane south of the American Legion Bridge, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Tuesday. The change means ﬁve travel lanes for 1.5 miles from Old Dominion Drive north to the George Washington Parkway interchange. The conﬁguration is similar to Interstate 66 west of the Beltway, where drivers are allowed to use the shoulders for travel during peak periods.
The biggest beneﬁciaries may be those afternoon commuters who leave the Beltway at the George Washington Parkway. The new left lane on the inner loop will be open for trafﬁc during the afternoon rush once a $20 million conversion is done in late 2014, according to the statement issued by the governor’s ofﬁce. Virginia plans to start construction in mid-2014, preparing the shoulder and installing overhead lane signals controlling its use. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)
platform? At rush hour, there is a mad rush for the last car of sixcar trains, causing congestion and people holding doors trying to get on. I don’t know of any plan to put markers on the platforms. It does seem to affect visitors more than the regulars. There used to be platform announcements about the trains pulling to the front of the platforms, but I haven’t heard one in a long time. The best solution would be return to automatic train operation, under which a six-car train could stop at mid-platform, but there is no date for that. Whatever happened to plans long ago to extend the Blue Line to Lorton, Va.? I never hear anything about that any more! There’s no active plan to do that. If it happened, it would be because Virginia wanted to build the extension, and I’m not seeing enough interest among the public and private entities that would likely have to finance it. I think it probably makes more financial sense to look for improvements in VRE service in that corridor.

D.C. Living-Wage Bill Passes Initial Vote Law would require a pay bump at some larger retail stores Washington D.C. lawmakers gave initial approval Wednesday to a bill that would require stores such as Walmart and Target to pay employees no less than $12.50 an hour — a sig-
nificant increase from the current citywide minimum wage of $8.25. The D.C. Council’s approval, on an 8-to-5 vote, came after the incorporation of an amendment that would limit the law’s impact to stores doing business in spaces of 75,000 square feet or more. Without it, the bill would have covered all businesses associated with a national company that does yearly sales of $1 billion or more —

potentially affecting retailers as Apple, Nike and Starbucks. The bill passed after nearly an hour of debate that touched on the need to balance efforts to attract major retailers with residents’ ability to earn sufﬁcient wages in a city with a rising cost of living.

Baby Bear Gives Chase Fit for the Big City After leading D.C. police on a 90-minute chase through yards and thorn bushes, a small black bear was captured in a Northwest yard. The bear, which animal control ofﬁcials described as less than a year old, was caught near a residence in the Palisades neighborhood around 10:30 a.m. It was released into the wild in western Montgomery County, Md., about two hours later, said Scott Giacoppo, Washington Humane Society’s vice president of external affairs. The D.C. bear sighting comes on the heels of others in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County, Md., this week. Ofﬁcials said such sight-

ings are typical this time of year, as they attempt to ﬁnd food. Bears have a natural fear of humans and are not expected to pose a threat. Bears are not often found in D.C., though, so Giacoppo guesses that the animal found Wednes-
day may be the same one that had been spotted in several places around the vicinity — it’s possible for bears to travel up to 100 miles in a single day. If it is the same bear, he has quite the story to tell his friends.
Giacoppo says the typical procedure is to simply scare bears off, but because of the proximity to the city, the Humane Society needed to use a tranquilizer and transport the animal to Maryland. The bear was given dab of antibiotic cream for a wound on his shoulder and a reversing agent for the tranquilizer before being released. By Wednesday afternoon, the animal was back in the woods and likely feeling like the star of another “Hangover” sequel. “He’s probably thinking, ‘I was running around D.C. and felt a sting in my butt and now I’m here,’ ” Giacoppo says. “I want to tell him, ‘I’ve felt that way too, pal.’ ” (THE WASHINGTON POST/E XPRESS)

Cleanup Proposal Prince George’s County, Md., officials, bumping up against a July 1 deadline to improve controls on storm water and polluting runoff, are proposing fees and a management program they hope will also create jobs. The administration of County Executive Rushern Baker III recently unveiled its proposal, which still must be approved by the County Council, to pay for a $1.2 billion program over the next decade. The plans would cost homeowners up to $62 annually in fees but would give them a break if they did some storm-water management of their own. (T WP)

DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT
Gay rights activists cheer Wednesday outside the Supreme Court in D.C. after justices struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
Historic Rulings Reflect the Times Gay marriage advocates win big, even as justices avoid having the final say Washington Over the past five years, public attitudes about same-sex marriage have changed as quickly and as dramatically as on any social issue in modern memory. In a pair of decisions Wednesday, the Supreme Court provided a historic push to the movement even as it decided for now to leave the political wrangling over marriage to the states and politicians. Everything about the decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8 suggested that the justices fully recognize the direction the national debate is heading. By every measure, more
and more Americans are coming to accept the idea that same-sex marriages should be legal, part of a cultural change of enormous signiﬁcance. The scene outside the Supreme Court spoke to the status of the national debate and to interpretations of what the justices had done. The throngs were dominated by supporters of same-sex marriage, and their jubilation in the wake of the court’s decisions showed that they regarded Wednesday as a momentous day in the push for marriage equality. But the shift in public opinion is neither fully realized nor consistent across the U.S., or among all demographic groups. Same-sex marriage
After Prop. 8 The court’s ruling on Proposition 8 will once again add California, the nation’s most populous state, to the list of jurisdictions where such marriages are legal. Same-sex marriage is legal in 12 states and the District of Columbia — representing 18 percent of he U.S. population. When gay marriage resumes in California, the figure will jump to 30 percent. Twenty-nine states have constitutional amendments that ban gay marriage. Six states have laws that ban it. (T WP/AP)
continues to divide Americans on the basis of ideology, political party, age and region, which is why legal and political battles will continue after Wednesday’s rulings. The court
“As the American people are given time to experience the actual consequences of redeﬁning marriage, the public debate and opposition to the redeﬁnition of natural marriage will undoubtedly intensify.” — TON Y PERK INS, PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL
seemed keenly aware of that. The court’s decisions provide federal recognition (and therefore beneﬁts) of the legalization that has taken place in a growing number of states but don’t require the majority of states that still bar such unions to overturn those laws now. Yet in doing so, the court likely provided strong assistance to the proponents of same-sex marriage for the battles ahead. Thirty years ago, the culture wars split the Democratic coalition and left the party on the defensive in national elections. Today it is just the opposite. Democrats now use the issue to try to broaden their support base. But in other ways, the battle over marriage continues to rage. Same-sex marriages are not legal in more than three dozen states, many of which have bans in their constitutions. It could take many years to change those provisions. Only the Supreme Court could short-circuit that process. For now the justices are unwilling. That is not to say that in a few years there will be no change. But as same-sex marriage proponents noted Wednesday, the struggle for rights rarely end in one judicial thunder clap. DAN BALZ (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Dissecting the Rulings Two landmark Supreme Court rulings that bolster gay marriage rights don’t remove all barriers to same-sex unions by a long shot. Some questions and answers about Wednesday’s court rulings. (AP)
Can you boil down these rulings to the basics? In one case, the court said legally married gay couples are entitled to the same federal benefits available to straight couples. In the other, it cleared the way for gay marriages to resume in California, where voters banned them in 2008.
What type of benefits are we talking about? More than you’d think. There are more than 1,000 federal laws in which marital status matters, covering everything from income to taxes to health benefits.
Why does it matter where a gay couple lives? Where legally married gay couples live still may affect the federal benefits they can obtain, for now.
What more could the Supreme Court have done? It could have given gay Americans the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals. But it sidestepped the question of whether banning gay marriage is unconstitutional.

Notable pick after: David West (No. 18)
Notable pick after: Rajon Rondo (No. 21)
Notable pick after: Kawhi Leonard (No. 15)
Notable pick after: Pau Gasol (No. 3)
Bust factor: In one of the top draft classes in NBA history — with the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade — the Wizards ended up with a guy who was out of the league before James even won his first title. In the Wizards’ defense, those superstars weren’t available with the No. 10 pick, and Washington had a great second-round selection that year in Steve Blake.
Bust factor: This was a weak draft class, but Rajon Rondo, Kyle Lowry and Paul Millsap were all selected after Pecherov. A pick in the middle of the first round should at least become a serviceable role player, but the 7-foot Ukrainian center was out of the NBA in three years. He played in 111 games, averaging 3.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per contest. Only two players selected after Pecherov in the first round played in fewer games.
Bust factor: It’s been only two seasons, but it doesn’t seem premature to say it was a mistake to pick the 6-foot-11 forward out of the Czech Republic with the No. 6 pick. In 108 games, he has 263 personal fouls and 174 field goals made. That’s an average of 1.5 fouls per every made basket. Last season he shot 30.8 percent from the free-throw line to go along with averaging 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds a game.
Bust factor: What’s more shocking: that Brown was ever a No. 1 pick, or that the Warriors were willing to give him a one-year, $7 million contract in 2011? In his 12-year career, Brown has averaged doubledigit points once, when he scored 10.9 points and grabbed a career-high 5.0 rebounds a game in the 2003-04 season. Not only is he the Wizards’ biggest draft bust, but he’s one of the biggest busts in NBA history.
Notable picks after: Marc Gasol (No. 48, 2007), Serge Ibaka (No. 24, 2008) Bust factor: These two were drafted a year apart but left Washington on the same day. After Young and McGee failed to live up to unreasonably high expectations, the Wizards traded them on March 15, 2012, to acquire Nene. Their stint with the Wizards was best known for immature behavior on and off the court, and both assumed much less responsibility with their new teams.

Tiger Looks Forward to British Open Golf Tiger Woods can’t say whether his left elbow will be fully healed in time for the British Open, only that it will be “good enough.” Woods returned to the AT&T National on Wednesday as the defending champion only in name.
AT&T National First Round: Today, 6:30 a.m. Where: Congressional Country Club, Bethesda TV: Golf Channel (3-6 p.m.; 8:30-11:30 p.m)
Doctors have recommended that he sit out at Congressional this week, and The Greenbrier Classic next week, because of a left elbow strain that has been bothering him for more than a month and was made worse when he hacked out of the dense U.S. Open rough at Merion. The British Open is July 18-21 at Muirﬁeld. On Wednesday, Woods could not say that he would be at 100 percent by then. “How about … good enough,” he said. DOUG FERGUSON (AP)

Nationals Stephen Strasburg is a 24-year-old pitcher with a history of injuries. Therefore, it shouldn’t have been a surprise when Nationals pitching coach Steve McCatty walked to the mound during the seventh inning of Washington’s 2-1 win over Colorado on Friday night after Strasburg stretched out his back. Having dealt with a right lat injury that placed Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list earlier this season, McCatty became concerned. But Strasburg wasn’t too keen on McCatty coming out to check on him. “He was real mad at [McCatty] for running out there,” manager Davey Johnson said. “I think [McCatty] was a little worried. I didn’t have him on a pitch count, but [McCatty] did. When he was at

92 pitches, and kind of stretched, he was a little worried. Just like the mother hen that he is.” This illustrates the level of the Nationals’ interest in one of their most prized players. Given Strasburg’s Tommy John surgery and history of ailments, the Nationals have monitored his health closely. And the special attention might be breeding a bit of resentment from
the young star. “I’m not a kid anymore,” Strasburg said. “The only reason he came out was because he saw [shortstop Ian Desmond] come up and talk to me. [Desmond] told me, ‘Hey, let yourself pitch.’ I should be allowed to stretch a little bit out there.” It’s clear McCatty is protective of Strasburg, but even Desmond
Hernandez Charged With Murder NFL New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged Wednesday with murdering a friend a few days after they got into a dispute at a nightclub. Hernandez was taken from his home in handcuffs Wednesday morning, more than a week after Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd’s bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez’s home. Soon after his arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez from the team. Lloyd was a 27-year-old semipro football player for the Boston Bandits. His relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez’s

fiancee, that the two men were friends and that the men were out together on the last night of Lloyd’s life. He was shot multiple times in the back and chest, authorities said. Hernandez was charged with murder and weapons counts. In court, prosecutors described
a killing borne out of a dispute at a Boston nightclub on the night of June 14, but they didn’t say exactly what supposedly angered Hernandez. Hernandez and two friends picked up Lloyd at home at 2:30 a.m. June 17, Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley said. Surveillance footage from Hernandez’s home shows him leaving earlier with a gun, McCauley said. He also told someone in the house that he was upset and couldn’t trust anyone anymore, the prosecutor said. Hernandez’s attorney, Michael Fee, asked for bail, saying Hernandez is not a ﬂight risk, is a homeowner and lives with his ﬁancee and an 8-month-old baby. He also said Hernandez had never been accused of a violent crime. MICHELLE R. SMITH (AP)

feels obligated to protect the righthander. Having been one of the most highly touted pitching prospects in recent history, Strasburg has been thoroughly analyzed by the Nationals organization, media outlets and fans alike. “He’s trying to prove himself in the big leagues,” Desmond said. “The pressure you guys put on him — the media and everyone else, ‘SportsCenter,’ the baseball network, whoever it is — they try to build it all up. He’s just a young kid learning at the big league level. It’s fun to watch him progress.” Strasburg says he feels entitled to some leeway from his organization. “It’s no big deal,” Strasburg said. “Obviously, [McCatty] cares about me and wants me to be OK. But there’s nothing to worry about.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

In 1934, folklorist and novelist Zora Neale Hurston wrote that “the will to adorn” is vital to African-American expression. Prayers, stories, decor and clothes are “tooled and polished until they are true works of art.” That observation launched a Folklife research initiative to explore the vast diversity of styles among members of the African diaspora in America. “Style and body arts allow people to express who they are … what their values are, and what’s important to them,” Mason says.

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX
In “The Heat,” out Friday, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are a law enforcement team, and it’s wacky because they’re different from each other! Because what do you want in a duo of cops? Wackiness. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 ‘Turner & Hooch’ Tom Hanks adopts Hooch after the dog’s master is killed, because dogs can catch criminals, or so thought this 1989 comedy. Hooch’s breed is Dogue de Bordeaux, which from French translates to “Giant Dog Who Drools All the Time Seriously With the Drool.”
2 ‘Rush Hour’ Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker teamed up in 1998 (and 2001 and 2007) to rescue a woman through the powers of kung fu (Chan) and talking really fast (Tucker).
3 ‘Cop and a Half’ Burt Reynolds took a role in 1993 as a kid-hating cop. Guess who they make his partner for some insane reason!
4 ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’ Estelle Getty joins Sylvester Stallone in 1992’s best senior-citizen-witha-gun movie. Wait. Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven” also came out that year. OK, 1992’s SECOND best seniorcitizen-with-a-gun movie.
5 ‘K-9’ In The Year of Human-Dog Teams (1989), Jim Belushi worked with Jerry Lee, a German shepherd with a sense of humor. Well, everyone thinks he’s funny because if you don’t laugh he bites your face off.
Starring as Himself James Adomian does celebrity impressions, but the voice he’s proudest of is his own Comedy For years, James Adomian was anyone but himself onstage. The sketch comedian performed in costume, doing aggressive, sometimes obnoxious impersonations of people such as Vincent Price, George W. Bush and Jesse Ventura. “I’ve been doing impressions since I could talk,” the 33-year-old says. “I used to do impressions of teachers and coaches and people in my life when I was a kid.” But Adomian eventually realized he wanted to talk about his own life. “If you’re a sketchcomedy performer doing characters, [nobody cares] if you’re [also] gay, which I am,” Adomian says. “It required me to do stand-up to talk about that. I can’t drop character and say, ‘By the way, the person saying this is gay.’ ” So five years ago, Adomian turned to stand-up. At first, he was reluctant to mix impressions into his new act. “I never liked it when people just do voices to show off
how they can do voices,” he says. “That’s never struck me as interesting comedy. I’m trying to have some larger point to what I’m doing.” Adomian found the right balance of personal observations and vocal acrobatics — right enough to release his first album, “Low Hangin Fruit,” in 2012. His impressions are now integrated seamlessly into his act: talking about watching wrestling as a kid leads to a bit about Ventura; Sam Elliott comes out during a riff about beer ads; and he becomes Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps while discussing being gay. “L ow Ha ng i n Fr u it ” wa s
“If you are in the persona of someone who’s not you, you don’t have to be a good person.” released via Earwolf, the podcasting network that is home to “Comedy Bang! Bang!,” which Adomian frequently guests on. On the podcast, he embraces his sketch roots, playing abrasive characters who interrupt host Scott Aukerman’s
chats with comics and celebrities. Though he’s favored stand-up of late, Adomian says he’ll take a break from touring after his shows in Arlington this weekend and might return to sketch comedy “in a big way.” One idea: an album featuring his many characters. “It’s a wild circus of a life, and I don’t fight that anymore,” Adomian says. “I embrace it.” RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

Character Building Here’s a guide to three of James Adomian’s characters and recommendations on where to hear them. George W. Bush Adomian’s big break came as a Bush impersonator. In “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay,” his 43 lights up with the titular stoners. He also was a frequent visitor to D.C., where he’d perform as Bush at political events. Listen: “Bushsteps,” on “Low Hangin Fruit,” imagines a long goodbye from the ex-president.
Gordon Ramsay Adomian appeared as the reality TV chef on a recent episode of “Comedy Bang! Bang!” — complete with a self-censoring bleep box installed in his throat. “I don’t like bullies and when I see them, I’m drawn to bullying them,” Adomian says. Listen: “Comedy Bang! Bang!” Ep. 212, where “Ramsay” gives the podcast a makeover.
Jesse Ventura Adomian plays the wrestler-turnedgovernor-turnedconspiracy theorist in a stage show, “Conspiracy Theory Live With Jesse Ventura.” “It’s one of the most fun things I get to do,” he says. Listen: “Bang! Bang!” Ep. 80, in which “Ventura” and rapper/actor “Ice-T” (comic Paul F. Tompkins) discuss a trip to Mexico. R.G.

President Woodrow Wilson asked Gibson to help drum up popular support for America’s entry into World War I. Among Gibson’s creations was this 1917 recruitment poster for the American Ambulance Field Service, which carried wounded soldiers as well as munitions and supplies for the French armies. “In these posters, [the Gibson Girl] becomes a powerful, monumental, allegorical figure … fending off death and protecting a wounded soldier,” Library of Congress curator Martha H. Kennedy notes.

of female empowerment. While you wouldn’t catch the Gibson Girl (or Gibson himself) marching with the suffragettes, she holds her own with men, especially in social situations. In the future, these American beauties might even serve on war counsels and beat men on the football field, predicted a series of illustrations Gibson inked for Life magazine in 1896. By the start of World War I, the Gibson Girl had fallen out of fashion. She soon re-emerged in her most powerful guise yet — as a pert-nosed personification of America on war recruitment posters.

“One of Gibson’s themes … is that beautiful young women really do have the upper hand in courtship.”
Stand-up school graduates Comedy Central, host our Comedy Lounge Howard Stern & The Burn
The Gibson Girl was a hottie who held her own with Kens With her arched eyebrows, corseted waist and elaborate updo, the Gibson Girl could have come off as stiff. But in Charles Dana Gibson’s iconic illustrations, which graced the pages of Life, Scribner’s and other magazines at the turn of the 20th century, she was vivacious, athletic and smart. In “The Gibson Girl’s America,” running through Aug. 17 at the Library of Congress, you can see original drawings of Gibson’s namesake hiking, biking, playing violin and playing with men — all without ruffling a hair on her perfectly coiffed head. “Gibson was really celebrating this new kind of woman who was vibrant and beautiful and involved in the world,” says curator Martha H. Kennedy. At a time when many artists depicted emancipated women as mannish and unattractive, Gibson provided a more palatable vision
The Weaker Sex, II This 1903 illustration for Collier’s Weekly provokes chuckles from gallery visitors once they realize the figure at the center is a tiny suitor. The poor guy seems seconds away from being pinned to the table like an insect specimen by four impassive women. “One of Gibson’s themes — and he treats it lightly, with humor — is that beautiful young women really do have the upper hand in courtship and marriage,” Kennedy says.

entertainment | Weekend Pass When I’m editing stories for the show, I’m basically just projecting my own reactions onto the audience. If it seems slow to me, it must seem slow to them, but you never guess perfectly right. There have been stories I’ve tried to do verbatim for audiences and, as I perform, I realize, “Oh, no, this really drags,” so I trim them back and sharpen the jokes.

Stream these “This American Life” stories from thisamericanlife.org.
She knew how to tap-dance before taking on the footworkheavy role of nightclub diva Reno Sweeney in the romantic, shipboard musical “Anything Goes.” But touring the 1934 Cole Porter nautical classic required Broadway actress Rachel York to brush up on steps and shimmies before hopping into the shoes of the glamorous, worldly wise chanteuse. (The title song spins off into an 11-minute-long taphappy number starring York and most of the 25-member cast.)
Episode 218: Act V: A group of inmates at a high-security prison rehearse for a performance of “Hamlet’s” Act V.
Episode 74: Conventions: The final segment’s fateful meeting will have you sobbing into your canvas tote bag.
There’s More (or Less) to the Story Live onstage, Ira Glass re-creates and remixes ‘This American Life’ Talks “This American Life” host Ira Glass could, if he chose, hide behind his mic for the rest of his life. For his live show, “Reinventing Radio: An Evening With Ira Glass,” he comes out from behind the soundproof partition. Saturday at Strathmore, he’ll remix stories from the show (heard locally on WAMU) and explain how the broadcast comes together.
You don’t normally see the audience as they listen to “This American Life.” Does watching people react to you change things?
It’s my dream to play to an audience in Elizabethan England, where the groundlings throw stuff at me [if they don’t like it]. I hope the good people of Bethesda live up to that. Strathmore is pretty fancy. They might not let people bring tomatoes in.
Yes, I understand they have a strict check-your-tomatoes-at-the-door policy. Do you change up the stories for the live audience?
“It’s my dream to play to an audience in Elizabethan England, where the groundlings throw stuﬀ at me [if they don’t like it].”
Episode 246: My Pen Pal: A 10-yearold corresponds with Manuel Noriega. Is that due to the nature of the stage show, or the stories themselves?
Every time I’ve changed [a story], I’ve wished I could go back and change it on the radio. One story I’ll tell in Bethesda is about this production of “Riverdance” where the dancers were so bored they all pitched in money for the Mega Millions lottery, and then they basically lived for that. On the radio it was 18 minutes. The version onstage will be 11 minutes and when we did a rebroadcast, we pretty much used that version. Do you hate listening to yourself?
I was really self-conscious, but I now understand that’s what I sound like. I can now focus on more disturbing things, like, “Why did I ask that question? Why couldn’t I be more relaxed?” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

How did you get ready for all this dancing? It had been a while since I’d tapped, and I was a little rusty, so I took a few catchup lessons. Once I got the steps back in my body, I was fine.
How do you prep for the long dance sequences before going onstage? Right before I do the big “Anything Goes” number, I spend about five minutes warming up my ankles and my taps. Later, I do some stretching.
Tap dancing is so retro. Do you think it still excites audiences? Well, I grew up watching old movies, and I think all that innocent, happy choreography is such an escape. And I think that’s what this show offers … a 2½-hour cruise with great songs and dance numbers.
Have you gone through a bunch of tap shoes on the tour? Actually, no. I still have the same pair. But our shoes keep needing to be repainted! JENNIFER BARGER (E XPRES S) Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW; through July 7, $25-$115; 202-467-4600, kennedy-center.org. (Foggy Bottom)

This large, inchthick slab looks as soft as velvet. Its outdoor environment causes the simple shape to generate everchanging shadows.
Happy 90 years of life, painter and sculptor Ellsworth Kelly! If we knew your works were coming to the Phillips Collection in celebration of your May 31st birthday, we’d have baked a minimalist, monochromatic cake (which would be really easy to frost). Instead this month, the gallery has assembled a group of seven of Kelly’s recent pieces — large-scale panel paintings made between 2004 and 2009. The works are unmistakably Kelly in their abstract-expressionist punch: Several feature his distinctive pairing of two bright colors on one canvas; others simply drench squares and rectangles in monochromatic hues (such as 2007’s “Green Blue Black Red”). It’s easy to argue that color-field paintings such as Kelly’s have no narrative. His work is a challenging experiment in how viewers engage with simplicity, but a look at Kelly’s progression as an artist does reveal a story of sorts. Ahead of a trip to the Phillips, check out his earlier pieces on permanent view around town.

A Fine Taste in Art
Earlier this month, a work of street art by Banksy, the clandestine graﬃti god, sold in London for more than $1 million at an auction. Across the pond, select area restaurateurs have tapped local artists to bring the same irreverent art form into their establishments to complement the cuisine. “It shows we’re not a bow-tie-and-white-glove restaurant,” says chefowner R.J. Cooper of Rogue 24, where the walls are spray-painted with, among other things, images of the tattoos of the original staﬀ. Here are four eateries where the vibrant swoops, swirls and sketches adorning the walls enhance the equally enticing menu in your hand. NE VIN MARTELL (FOR E XPRES S) wall markings for a masterfully painted purple-haired woman by bar manager Matt Allred. “We’re trying to replicate a San Francisco or Brooklyn bar in the middle of the suburbs,” owner Michael Holstein says. “We tried to carry that goal across the whole restaurant, from the menu to the interior to the drinks we serve.” The edgy art certainly offsets Quench’s stripmall location, where you can find decadent dishes like peach bourbon-glazed brisket and duck tacos with pickled fennel and Korean mojo sauce.
“The idea was to bring the outside inside … like you were out in the streets.”
The menu at this H Street cheesesteak joint has a thick Philly accent, with Cheez Whiz, grilled onions and fruity Italian water ices making an appearance. The homage to the City of Brotherly Love doesn’t end there: On the walls you’ll find the graffiti likenesses of 76ers legend Dr. J, the SEPTA logo and the Philadelphia Gas Works building. The sprawling work was done by artists Brandon Hill and Peter Chang of D.C.’s No Kings Collective. Streetlights and manhole covers were also imported from the city and hung on the walls. “The idea was to bring the outside inside,” says co-owner Casey Patten. “We wanted the space to have an edgy, dark side to it, like you were out in the streets.”

The cocktails at this vibrant latenight lounge on the U Street corridor are prismatic with yellow lemon wedges, wheels of verdant cucumber, plump red berries and emerald herbs. The walls follow suit. Graffiti artist Andrew Funk created a number of multihued murals featuring a butterfly-loving ingenue, President Obama, the Jefferson Memorial at sunset and a nonsensical jumble of letters. “We’re all about being free, open, going against the grain and doing what you want to do,” general manager Tiffany Penn says. “The artwork is a reflection of that philosophy.”

Zahidi, who once stirred and sauteed at Evo Bistro in McLean, Va., was born in Morocco, which explains the bastilla on his Mediterranean menu.

Le Mediterranean serves French-fusion food at friendly prices If you like deals and you find yourself in Fairfax City, make it a point to drop by Le Mediterranean Bistro.

Georgetown’s Bourbon Steak (2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) will host a charcuterie and riesling class Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets ($65, available by calling 202944-2026) include a how-to demo for making cured meats and pairing them with the proper vino.
“jus” that’s actually a thick demiglace — and, frankly, a distraction on the plate. The bistro’s small crew includes Zahidi’s brother, Hicham, who makes an enthusiastic host and server. “Excellent choice!” he says after each food request. “Would you tell us if it wasn’t?” I asked. “We’d take it off the menu!”

A Tearful ‘Today’ Paula Deen gives another weepy apology, this time on morning television 27
White House Goes Boom … Again
Channing Tatum stars in “White House Down” as a police officer tasked with saving the president from an attack — not to be confused with “Olympus Has Fallen,” in which the same thing basically happens.
“Boy Meets World,” the 1990s ABC sitcom that expounded upon the behavioral patterns of suburban juveniles, is lumbering back to life as “Girl Meets World.” Due in 2014, this reboot will focus on Riley, daughter of former “boy” Cory and his crush Topanga. Riley will meet a world with lots of things her parents couldn’t have imagined, like TEXTING! And SEXTING!! OMG!!! So I guess it’s now officially a thing to By Marc update old shows. I Silver would like to humbly propose: “Jeers.” It’s a bar where everybody knows your name and constantly makes fun of it. “Seinfeld at Kleinfeld.” The comic’s son, Jerry Jr., toils at the bridal gown shop from TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress.” His advice to a bride-to-be: “That dress looks like a hairball — not that there’s anything wrong with that.” “Beverly Hillbilly Housewives.” Them hillbilly granddaughters sure love botox ‘n’ squirrel meat. “Up Dawson’s Creek Without a Paddle.” The original cast returns as elderly versions of themselves. Drama ensues when they go for a canoe ride and an addled Pacey forgets to pack the paddles! Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse
No, you’re not having deja vu — another film puts the president’s residence under siege Movies Roland Emmerich knows all about disasters. The 57-year-old filmmaker laid waste to several landmarks in “Independence Day,” turned New York into an ice cube in “The Day After Tomorrow” and leveled most of the world in “2012.” However, when it comes to his latest film, “White House Down,” the biggest catastrophe might not be that terrorists have commandeered America’s most famous home. It’s that the action ﬁlm, starring Jamie Foxx as the president of the United States and Channing Tatum
as his impromptu bodyguard, is being released Friday — just three months after “Olympus Has Fallen,” which featured a strikingly similar plot with Aaron Eckhart and Gerard Butler in the parallel roles. Yet Emmerich doesn’t think the coincidence is the end of the world. “You do your film,” he says. “They do their ﬁlm. I remember when there were two volcano and two meteor movies. I thought, ‘Isn’t Hollywood stupid to do that?’ All of a sudden, I was in the same situation, and I said, ‘I’m not stopping.’” “White House Down” follows Sgt. John Cale (Tatum), a Capitol police officer who is touring the White House with his daughter after tanking an interview for a Secret Service job. When rogue former soldiers begin wreaking havoc on Pennsylvania Avenue, Cale must rescue his daughter and the president.
“You make your own thing and hope for the best. That’s it.”
— ROL A ND
EMMERICH, DIRECTOR OF “WHITE HOUSE DOWN”
Double Trouble? When it comes to like-minded movies, there’s no evidence that going second is a death sentence. Sure, “Dante’s Peak” grossed more than “Volcano” when it erupted two months earlier in 1997, but “Armageddon” outperformed “Deep Impact” seven weeks later in 1998. And last year, “Snow White and the Huntsman” mined more than double at the box office two months after the debut of “Mirror Mirror.” (AP)
There are some differences between the ﬁlms. The “Olympus Has Fallen” baddies were led by a former North Korean terrorist who kept Eckhart’s President Asher in captivity for most of the movie. The “White House Down” villains are a rag-tag band of mercenaries who spend their time hunting down Foxx’s President Sawyer. The former was also R-rated, while the latter is more light-hearted PG-13 fare. Emmerich ﬁrst learned another White House takeover movie was in the works when he traveled to Louisiana to meet with Foxx about the role. At the time, director Antoine Fuqua wasn’t attached to “Olympus,” so Emmerich didn’t take the movie seriously. He still hasn’t seen it — and doesn’t intend to just yet. “I will probably watch it at Christmas,” he says, “when all is said and done.” DERRIK J. L ANG (AP)
A Renewed Plan: D.C. post-punk pioneers The Dismemberment Plan will release “Uncanney Valley,” its first album of new music since 2001, on Oct. 19. After breaking up in 2003, the band staged a full-on reunion tour in 2011. New music eventually followed. “We never psyched ourselves out and thought, ‘NOW we’re making a Plan record,” guitarist Jason Caddell said in a press release. “It was more like stay calm and play on.

MICHAEL DWYER (AP)
Neil Diamond performed “Sweet Caroline” during a Boston Red Sox baseball game April 20, just a few days after the Boston Marathon bombings.
Neil Diamond’s Boston Tribute The ‘Sweet Caroline’ singer’s new song will benefit victims of the marathon bombings Music Neil Diamond visited Boston in the days following the marathon bombings and left convinced he should do something to help. “I was moved by the unity and the attitude of the people in Boston,” Diamond says. “And that’s really all a songwriter needs, is to be inspired. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, you have to follow that muse, and I did.” The result is “Freedom Song (They’ll Never Take Us Down),” a new patriotically themed song Diamond will release through iTunes and Amazon on July 2. All proceeds from the song will go to beneﬁt the Boston One Fund and the Wounded Warriors Project. Diamond watched coverage of the April 15 bombings unfold from afar, then visited the city the following Saturday. The Red Sox, the city’s Major League Baseball franchise, adopted the 72-year-old singer’s hit “Sweet Caroline” as an eighthinning anthem some time ago and
Capital Concerts Neil Diamond will perform “Freedom Song (They’ll Never Take Us Down)” live for the first time publicly on July 4 at a Washington Nationals-Milwaukee Brewers game. He’ll also sing it later that day during “A Capitol Fourth,” which PBS broadcasts from the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol. (AP)
had invited him to perform it live. The city was still reeling from the marathon bombings, but its residents responded to the attacks deﬁantly. Diamond returned home and began work on “Freedom Song.” He said in a phone interview that it took about six weeks to write and record. “I didn’t know exactly what would happen with this song, but I did know I had to write it,” Diamond says. “So I set out on that creative journey of writing something that would lift people up, lift their spirits in the way that mine was lifted when I f lew to Boston to sing at the Red Sox game.” CHRIS TALBOT T (AP)

Mo Music, Mo Videos Diddy misses the old MTV, so he’s creating his own channel Sean “Diddy” Combs had been working on developing a TV network for years. But when he was almost shut out of performing on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” in 2010, the rapper-producer realized he needed to launch the network sooner rather than later. “I had to beg to be on … ‘Dancing,’ and it was something to me that wasn’t right about that,” he says.

had reached a deal to have his network distributed on Time Warner Cable. Comcast Corp. announced a deal with the network last year. Combs has produced such reality shows as “Making the Band” for MTV, but he’s hoping to bring the buzz of the Internet — viral videos, behind-the-scenes moments and raw interviews — to TV sets. “We want to have partnerships with YouTube and we want to have
partnerships with Facebook and Instagram and Spotify and Beats [by Dre],” he says. Combs emphasizes that Revolt TV will proudly play music videos, but “this is not an MTV 2 [or] 3.0.” “I wanted my MTV, and so when I missed it, I didn’t want to complain about it, I wanted to do something about it,” he says. “They inspired me and helped with the blueprint.” MESFIN FEK ADU (AP)
