Normal Folks Caught in NSA Net Snowden files show the collateral harm of U.S. surveillance Washington Ordinary Internet users, American and non-American alike, far outnumber legally targeted foreigners in the communications intercepted by the National Security Agency from U.S. digital networks, according to a four-month investigation by The Washington Post. Nine of 10 account holders found in a large cache of intercepted conversations, which former NSA contractor Edward Snowden provided in full to The Post, were not the intended surveillance targets but were caught in a net the agency had cast for somebody else.
Many of them were Americans. Nearly half of the surveillance ﬁles contained names, email addresses or other details that the NSA marked as belonging to U.S. citizens or residents. NSA analysts masked, or “minimized,” more than 65,000 such references to protect Americans’ privacy, but The Post found nearly 900 additional email addresses, unmasked in the ﬁles, that could be strongly linked to U.S. citizens or U.S. residents. In addition to the collateral harm to privacy — on a scale that the Obama administration has not been willing to address — there are discoveries of considerable intelligence value in the intercepted messages. Among the most valuable contents are fresh revelations about a secret overseas nuclear project, double-dealing by an ostensible
The number of account holders whose daily lives were cataloged and recorded despite not being targeted by the National Security Agency, according to a Washington Post study of intercepted conversations provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Many files — described as useless by the analysts but nonetheless retained — have an intimate, voyeuristic quality. They tell stories of love and heartbreak, illicit sexual liaisons, mental-health crises, political and religious conversions and financial anxieties. (T WP)
ally, a military calamity that befell an unfriendly power, and the identities of aggressive intruders into U.S. computer networks. Months of tracking communi-
cations across more than 50 alias accounts, the ﬁles show, led directly to the 2011 capture in Abbottabad of Muhammad Tahir Shahzad, a Pakistan-based bomb builder, and Umar Patek, a suspect in a 2002 terrorist bombing on the Indonesian island of Bali. The Post reviewed roughly 160,000 intercepted email and instant-message conversations and 7,900 documents taken from more than 11,000 online accounts. By law, the NSA may “target” only foreign nationals located overseas unless it obtains a warrant based on probable cause from a special surveillance court. “Incidental collection” of third-party communications is inevitable in many forms of surveillance.
TSA: Turn on Phones at Some U.S.-Bound Airports The Transportation Security Administration is requiring passengers at some overseas airports that offer U.S.-bound flights to power on electronic devices such as phones. The TSA says devices that won’t power up won’t be allowed on planes, and those travelers may have to undergo additional screening.

Shark Victim: ‘I’m Going to Die’
A Solemn Tribute

Sunday as their comrades hang bunting at the Brooklyn firehouse in honor of Lt. Gordon Ambelas, who was killed Saturday while looking for possible victims in a high-rise blaze. It was New York’s first line-ofduty death in more than two years.
Steven Robles was an hour into his regular weekend swim off some of Southern California’s most popular beaches when he came face-to-face with a great white shark. The 7-foot-long juvenile had been trying to free itself from a ﬁsherman’s hook for about half an hour. “It came up to the surface, it looked at me and attacked me right on the side of my chest,” Robles told KABC-TV. “That all happened within two seconds; I saw the eyes of the shark as I was seeing it swim toward me. It lunged at my chest, and it locked into my chest.” As a reﬂex, he tried to pry open the shark’s mouth. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is it. Oh my God, I’m going to die. This is really, this is it,’ ” Robles told CNN. And then, just as quickly as it struck, the shark let go and swam away. Robles was familiar with the waters of the Southern California coast. His Saturday morning rou-

was screaming,” Nejadhashemi said. At ﬁrst Nejadhashemi thought it must be a cramp. “Then,” he said, “I saw the blood.” Robles was taken to the hospital but by Sunday morning had been released. The beaches remained open, but a mile-long stretch was temporarily off-limits to swimmers. (AP)

Nation Blake Isham prepares a zombie-themed lecture at a Winchester, Va., gun class.
Zombies Take Over as a Stand-In for Real Danger Winchester, Va. With their handguns cocked and ready, two zombie hunters crept through a door in the Shenandoah Valley and into madness. A dozen bloody, undead faces stared back. Steve Wynn and Eric Timmerman, PBS engineers by day, encountered the zombie targets and dummies at a gun range in Winchester, Va., for “Zombie Survival 101,” a class offered by a Virginia ﬁrearms training company that has, like much of the gun world, become infested with zombies. Across the country, gun enthusiasts are turning pop culture’s fascination with the undead into a fun — and socially acceptable — target. Late last month, nearly 1,000 people gathered on 200 acres in Minnesota for Outbreak Omega, an annual event of simulated zombie attacks where shooters even rode in a local SWAT team’s armored truck. “It’s politically incorrect to shoot human targets,” says Larry Ahlman, the owner of Ahlman’s gun store, which hosts the Minnesota event. “And it’s getting politically incorrect to shoot animal targets.
“Zombies are so malleable. As a metaphor, they are really eﬀective for just about anything.” — K ELLY J. BA K ER, A RELIGIOUS HISTORIAN AND AUTHOR OF “THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING! THE REALITIES OF THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE IN AMERICAN CULTURE”
… But nobody can ﬁnd a place in their heart for a zombie. So it’s really the perfect thing to shoot.” The trend goes beyond guns. The prepping community, which urges people to ready for the apocalypse, is using zombies for recruitment. “To protect and sever” is the motto of the Zombie Response Team, a Texas prepper group. Zombies have even become a freaky metaphor for disease outbreaks and mass-casualty attacks, with both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Defense Department using zombie hordes in training documents and simulations.

It was the first time the extremist leader has appeared in a video and underscored how solidly the Islamic State controls Mosul, which it seized June 9.

U.S.-German Relations at Risk, Again Berlin An emerging scandal over a possible U.S. informant in the German intelligence service is threatening to spark a fresh rift between Washington and one of its closest allies over an explosive question here: Should friends spy on friends? German politicians and media expressed mounting outrage Saturday, a day after reports in the German press that a 31-year-old man arrested Thursday by German authorities was a mid-level member of German intelligence who passed state secrets to the United States. Authorities have not openly named the “foreign power” connected to the arrest, though the U.S. ambas-
It was recently revealed that the National Security Agency had eavesdropped on German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
sador to Berlin, John Emerson, was summoned by the Foreign Ministry on Friday to offer “swift clariﬁcation” of the case. The threat of a fresh spying scandal at a highly sensitive time in the U.S.-German relationship was already raising alarm on both
sides of the Atlantic. For months, the U.S. and Germany have sought to ease tensions after last year’s revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency had eavesdropped on the cellphone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. In response, German ofﬁcials have shown their displeasure, using more than just words. Citing concerns over possible data disclosures, for instance, the German Interior Ministry said last month that it would not renew a contract with the U.S.-based ﬁrm Verizon. Should the new investigation conclude there was U.S. involvement, the consequences could be deeply damaging. ANTHONY FAIOLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)
The region has been on edge since three Israeli teens were kidnapped last month in the West Bank. Last week, the teens’ bodies were found in a crime Israel blamed on the militant group Hamas. Just hours after the youths were buried, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian from east Jerusalem, was abducted near his home, and his charred remains were found shortly afterward in a Jerusalem forest. Preliminary autopsy results found he was still alive when he was set on ﬁre. Pa lestinians immediately accused Israeli extremists of killing the youth in revenge. And on Sunday, Israeli authorities said the killers had acted out of “nationalistic” motives. An Israeli ofﬁcial said there were six suspects and described them as young males, including several minors, all of whom lived in the Jerusalem area. JOSEF FEDERMAN (AP)

Right now, it’s illegal for either company to pick up passengers in the commonwealth, although they can drop off riders coming from D.C.

for temporary authority that would last until the license is issued. The two companies had initially resisted applying for these licenses, arguing that their services — which pair riders to drivers by smartphone — should not fall under the regu-
lations imposed on traditional car services. Both Uber and Lyft have become popular as a lower-cost option featuring part-time drivers using their own cars. These drivers are not professionally licensed. Before the cease-and-desist letters, both companies had been ﬁned for operating in Virginia without proper licensing. Uber was hit with a $26,000 penalty, Lyft $9,000. After the letters were sent, police said they issued citations to several drivers.

‘Oh Boy, Was It Steamy’ President Harding’s affair unfolds in letters set to be displayed
On Christmas Eve, 1910, future president Warren Harding got out a photograph of himself, and on the back wrote an impassioned love note to his mistress. Harding, 45, who was married and would be elected the 29th president a decade later, wrote of his love. “It racks in the tortures of aching hunger, and glows in bliss ineffable — bliss only you can give.” His lover, Carrie Fulton Phillips, 37, who was married to one of Harding’s friends, kept the missive and began keeping dozens more love letters from Harding — some of them 30 pages long — despite his requests that she burn them. Held at The Library of Congress under court-ordered seal for the last 50 years, the trove of the original, often-juicy letters is scheduled to open to the public online on July 29. The library is hosting a program
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
Warren Harding’s love letters will be released to the public on July 29.
to discuss the collection July 22. The roughly 900 pages illuminate an extraordinary and intimate chapter in the life of a seemingly drab president who was dogged by political scandal, died in ofﬁce and had campaigned on a platform of “a return to normalcy.” The original Harding letters were sealed July 29, 1964, the library said. The Harding family donated them to the library in 1972, with the stipulation that they stay sealed until July 29, 2014.
But forgotten microﬁlm copies were discovered in an Ohio historical repository a decade ago by an author researching the president, and he used many of them in a detailed but little-known book. The letters reveal, among other things, an insecure, romantic man who sometimes wrote his mistress in code and slipped away for secret meetings with her. And there is little doubt about what went on. On Jan. 2, 1913, he wrote: “I do love you so. … I wonder if you realize how much — how faithfully, how gladly … how passionately. Yes you do know the last, you must have felt the proof.” The affair began in 1905, according to James David Robenalt, whose 2009 book, “The Harding Affair: Love and Espionage During the Great War,” details the relationship. It went on while Harding served as Ohio’s lieutenant governor and later as a U.S. senator, the Library of Congress said. “It was troubled and problematic,” Robenalt said. “But boy, oh boy, was it stea my.” MICHAEL E.

Silver Line Squeeze Some small stores in Tysons will be razed to make way for high-rises
D.C.’s Midtown Manhattan?
To reach the pinnacle he’s at today in the retail world, John Kenney, Northern Virginia’s leading purveyor of sex toys and porn videos, has conquered many obstacles. You don’t build a chain of 13 (soon to be 14) “couples boutiques,” as Kenney calls his stores, by folding to pressure from obscenity prosecutors, hostile zoning boards or angry neighbors inveighing against sin. But now, in Fairfax County, Kenney, 58, has met a foe he knows he can’t defeat. He says his 5,600-square-foot Tysons Corner emporium — once the second-most-proﬁtable boutique in the Kenney empire — will not survive the redevelopment expected to result from Metro’s Silver Line. Planners and developers think the Silver Line, due to open July 26, will radically alter the face of Tysons over time. And the transformation they envision won’t include “MVC LATE NIGHT DVD,” as the sign in front of Kenney’s Tysons store reads. Nor will it include a lot of other “low-density” enterprises — stripmall pizza joints, storefront insurances agencies, gas stations, mufﬂer shops — places where three or six or a dozen people work but where thousands could be employed in new steel-and-glass towers. Auto dealerships also aren’t likely to last long, analysts say, because the sprawling land they occupy is far too valuable in the Silver Line age to be wasted on parked cars. Kenney’s 12-by-6-foot billboard (“DVDS VIDEOS MAGAZINES & TOYS FOR ADULTS”) looms just steps from the Silver Line’s Greensboro station. The sign dates to the

Tysons Corner, Va.
‘A Family Thing’ John “Bo” Kenney started in the business when he was 16, working for his stepfather, Dennis Pryba, a long-ago titan in the D.C.-area retail porn industry. In a Reagan-era federal crackdown on the sale of obscene movies and magazines, Pryba got three years in prison and forfeited nearly all his assets to the government. Kenney picked up the pieces and rebuilt. Charged criminally with peddling indecent materials twice in the 1990s, in Fairfax and Prince Williams counties in Virginia, Kenney’s company was acquitted in one case, paid a $500 fine in the other and kept on expanding. “For me, this is a family thing,” he says. (T WP)
store’s opening in 1999, before Kenney, who goes by “Bo,” thought up a new name, Le Tache, which is French for “the spot,” and rebranded his outlets as “couples boutiques.” Beefy and profane, he’s standing in his store by a rack of lingerie (a kind you won’t ﬁnd in Macy’s), wearing Ray-Bans and a glittering watch. Within a year or so, Kenney says, he and his billboard will be gone. “They don’t care about me,” Kenney says, jabbing a thumb toward the Silver Line tracks. “This right here, the last ﬁve years, has cost me more money than all the legal cases we’ve fought combined.” He says, “It’s a [expletive] nightmare, is what it is.” Real estate developers have been buying the parcels where Kenney’s boutique and nine other businesses are located, at Leesburg
“Our business is my neighbors, your neighbors, people that are just looking for something to spice up their lives.” — JOHN “BO” K ENNE Y
Pike and Chain Bridge Road. Like Kenney and his showroom of unmentionables, all the other tenants are going away, including a Virginia ABC store, a bigscreen TV dealer, a mattress outlet, a family-run computer-parts shop and a psychic named Irene. Under standard “kick-out” clauses in their leases, the businesses can be evicted to make room for redevelopment. NV Commercial,
the development company behind the new project, called Tysons Central, says it expects construction to begin late next year. With six towers featuring up to 2 million square feet of ofﬁce, retail, hotel and luxury apartment space, the project is an example of what Fairfax ofﬁcials think will gradually happen all over Tysons. Planners envision a supercharged economy based on a skyline of ofﬁce towers and livable spaces. Gerald Gordon, chief executive of Fairfax County’s Economic Development Authority, says some low-density businesses will survive. Because the Tysons’ population is projected to go up, “you still need a drugstore” and “food and electrical products.” Kenney sells a lot of electrical products. Some use batteries, some have plugs.
With high-speed public transportation linking Tysons — the economic epicenter of Fairfax County — to downtown D.C., the Pentagon and Dulles, the Tysons area stands to become “a major business hub nationally,” says Gerald Gordon, chief executive of Fairfax County’s Economic Development Authority. Construction has begun on what he says could become “this region’s midtown Manhattan.” Next to the Silver Line station near Tysons Corner Center mall, three buildings, each 20 stories-plus, are nearly finished, and Gordon has a list of a dozen similar projects that are underway or being planned. (T WP)
“Oh, I … I don’t know,” Gordon says. “Where is that store exactly? I don’t know anything about that.” Take the Metro to Greensboro in a few weeks — you’ll see it. Ask for Bo. Tell him how great the Silver Line is. Then back up a few steps. “Look at this!” Kenney says. “Look!” He’s pointing at the tracks again. “They come in here, disrupt all our business for ﬁve years, didn’t give a [expletive] about the economic impact it had on us, and walked away. And somebody pocketed 3 billion on the contract. You know? I mean, hey, if I got 3 billion, I’d be doing a [expletive] dance, too.” Kenney says the store, which once pulled in more than $1 million a year, saw revenues decline 75 percent as Silver Line construction rerouted trafﬁc. But closing now and walking away from the lease, he says, would damage his credit rating and likely prompt a lawsuit by the landlord. “ We’re not t he bad g u y s here,” Kenney says.

Nats Beat Cubs in Pitchers’ Duel Zimmerman drives in winning run to close gap with Braves
The Lone All-Star Jordan Zimmermann was the only Nationals player selected for the 2014 All-Star Game — for which rosters were released Sunday — while Anthony Rendon is one of five candidates for the final vote. For the complete rosters of both the American and National Leagues, visit washingtonpost.com. (E XPRESS)
After Jordan Zimmermann put the Washington Nationals in position to win on the mound, Denard Span’s legs and Ryan Zimmerman’s bat made sure they beat the Chicago Cubs. Zimmerman’s eighth inning single drove in Span for the go-ahead run as the surging Nationals capped a strong weekend with a 2-1 win over the Cubs on Sunday. The expected pitcher’s duel took place as Zimmermann outdueled Jake Arrieta over six innings and left with a 1-0 lead. “The starter for them today was as advertised, tough,” Zimmerman said of Arrieta. “The way Jordan pitched, that was a game we needed to win.” The Cubs tied it in the seventh on Starlin Castro’s sacrifice f ly

against Drew Storen. Span’s hustle turned a soft hit to right ﬁeld off Pedro Strop (1-4) into a double leading off the eighth. The Cubs challenged the play, but replay showed that the sliding Span avoided the tag. “The fact that he broke out of the box hard and thought two (bases) from the beginning of it was key for us,” Nationals manager Matt Williams said.
Two outs later, the Cubs intentionally walked Adam LaRoche to bring up Zimmerman, who ripped a single to left to score Span from second. Tyler Clippard (6-2) worked out of trouble in the eighth inning. Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth and earned his 21st save for the Nationals, who have won seven of eight and moved to within a half game of ﬁrst-place Atlanta in the NL East.
Arrieta allowed four hits and one run over six innings. He gave up two singles to open the ﬁfth, but escaped the jam. Zimmermann struck out while attempting to bunt. “It was a dogﬁght,” Arrieta said. “I really had to grind it out there. I had guys on base. I had to make pitches in big situations. I was able to do that.” Zimmermann allowed seven hits with one walk and struck out ﬁve. He has given up two earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts. The right-hander is 3-2 with a 1.26 ERA in that span. “I think he found his slider,” Williams said. “Gives him another weapon.” BENJAMIN STANDIG (AP)
Golf Angel Cabrera won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday for his ﬁrst non-major victory on the PGA Tour, closing with his second straight 6-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over George McNeill. Cabrera, the 44-year-old Argentine whose only other PGA Tour victories came in the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters, built a three-shot lead before making things interesting with a pair of late bogeys. He finished at
16-under 264. McNeill shot a season-best 61 for his fourth top-10 of the season and ﬁrst since mid-March. Webb Simpson had a 63 to ﬁnish third at 10 under. Third-round leader Billy Hurley III bogeyed four of the ﬁrst six holes to fall out of contention. He shot 73 and ﬁnished in a seven-way tie for fourth at 9 under. No thirdround leader has hung on to win the Greenbrier Classic in its ﬁveyear existence. Cabrera had no top 10-fin-

ishes this season entering the tournament, but had everything working Sunday, hammering drives and approach shots with precision and coming up with clutch putts, especially on the back nine. Cabrera overtook McNeill with birdie putts of 17 and 7 feet on the 11th and 12th holes, then gave a ﬁst pump after moving to 17 under by holing a 176-yard 8-iron up the hill for eagle on the par-4 13th, the hardest hole at Old White TPC.

Wizards center Marcin Gortat’s new deal is worth $60 million over 5 years.
Gortat: Re-Signing Was Easy Wizards As one of the ﬁrst free agents to agree to terms, Marcin Gortat doesn’t have much to worry about until Thursday, when he puts his pen to a ﬁve-year, $60-million contract with the Wizards. Gortat has been relaxing in Orlando, Fla., for the past few days and decided to watch some summer league basketball at Amway Arena. While checking out the action, Gortat decided to sit down with NBA TV for an interview and offered his ﬁrst comments since deciding to return to Washington. “A lot of different reasons,” Gortat said, when asked why he elected to stay with the Wizards. “First of all, I like the city. I like the team. I deﬁnitely feel comfortable over there. The team really took me under the wing and they help me since the day one. I deﬁnitely love the chemistry between me and John Wall. I think Bradley Beal is going to be a great player one day … So, the decision was real easy for me. I believe that we will be a special team for the next four or ﬁve years.” Gortat was asked about interest from the Miami Heat and bobbed his head side to side, “We had a few teams, but I don’t think it [makes] any sense to talk about that now.” MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Djokovic Wins Wimbledon Crown
Cavendish Withdraws From Tour De France Cycling British sprinter Mark Cavendish pulled out of the Tour de France on Sunday with a serious shoulder injury likely to require surgery. Cavendish, with his arm in a sling underneath his sweatshirt, said outside the team bus before the start of the second stage that he was “absolutely devastated.” The 29-year-old sprinter known as the “Manx Missile” had made the Tour his main goal this season but saw his hopes of winning his ﬁrst yellow jersey disappear on Saturday when he hit the ground near the ﬁnish of the ﬁrst stage in his mother’s hometown of Harrogate, England. Meanwhile, Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali outfoxed other Tour de France title contenders to win a hilly second stage through Yorkshire countryside on Sunday, wresting the overall race leader’s yellow jersey. The Astana team leader pointed a ﬁnger skyward as he burst out of a 125-mile ride over nine rolling ascents and through the heath of northern England. Belgium’s Greg van Avermaet was second and Michal Kwiatkowski of Poland was third, each t wo seconds behind. (AP)
Novak Djokovic’s large lead in the rollicking Wimbledon ﬁnal was slipping away, due in no small part to Roger Federer’s regal presence and resurgent play. No man has won tennis’ oldest major tournament more often than Federer, and he was not about to let it go easily. Djokovic went from being a point from victory in the fourth set to suddenly caught in the crucible of a ﬁfth, and he knew all too well that he repeatedly had come up short in recent Grand Slam title matches. Steeling himself when he so desperately needed to, and steadying his weary legs, Serbia’s Djokovic held on for a 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 victory after nearly four hours of momentum shifts Sunday to win Wimbledon for the second time — and deny Switzerland’s Federer what would have been a record eighth championship at the

All England Club. In truth, after so much drama, the ending was anticlimactic. Trailing 5-4 in the ﬁfth set but serving, Federer missed four groundstrokes, pushing a backhand into the net on Djokovic’s second match point. Victory his, Djokovic knelt on the most hallowed tennis court in the world, plucked a blade of grass and shoved it in his mouth,
just as he did after his 2011 Wimbledon title. He dedicated this victory to his pregnant ﬁancee “and our future baby,” and to Jelena Gencic, his ﬁrst tennis coach, who died last year. “It was a great match to be part of. He’s a magniﬁcent champion and a great example of a great athlete and great role model for many kids,” Djokovic said during the oncourt ceremony, cradling the tro-
phy in his left arm. Then, addressing Federer directly, Djokovic said: “I respect your career and everything you have done. And thank you for letting me win today.” Even Federer had to smile at that line. “It was close, you know,” Federer said. “Novak deserved it at the end, clearly, but it was extremely close.” HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)
Brazil Moves On, Sans Neymar World Cup Even without Neymar, Brazil’s show must go on. The World Cup hosts, now forced to play without their injured superstar, will face Germany on Tuesday for a spot in next weekend’s ﬁnal. Neymar fractured a vertebra in his lower back in Brazil’s quarterﬁnal win over Colombia on Friday, ruling him out for the rest of the tournament. But despite having to stay off the ﬁeld, the 22-yearold striker with the dyed-blond fauxhawk is still expecting Brazil to win its sixth World Cup title. “I won’t be able to fulfill the dream of playing in a World Cup

ﬁnal,” Neymar said, “but I’m sure they will win this one, they will become champions, and I will be there with them, and all of Brazil
will be celebrating together.” His play on the ﬁeld lived up to the immense hype surrounding him — his face is plastered on billboards around the country and constantly shown in TV. Neymar scored four goals in the group stage and continued to make an impact — albeit without any more goals — in the knockout games until he took a knee in the back from Colombian defender Camilo Zuniga late in the match against Colombia. The question for Brazil now, however, is who will step up to replace Neymar as the focal point of the attack? The much-maligned Fred has been largely ineffective so far, while Hulk has also failed to score for the hosts. TALES A ZZONI (AP)

TV THIS WEEK TONIGHT, 9 P.M.
‘Beauty and the Beast’ (CW)
‘Extant’ melds pieces of its sci-fi precursors into a fairly intricate, compelling package
Cat’s (Kristin Kreuk, right) bid to circumvent Gabe leads her to a conclusion she doesn’t want in the season finale. She thinks the solution can be found in an old journal, but, much to her heartbreak, also discovers she would have to kill Vincent.
TUESDAY, 10 P.M.
‘Finding Carter’ (MTV) In this new drama series, a teenage girl’s seemingly perfect life is upended when she discovers the woman she thought was her mother actually abducted her as a baby. WEDNESDAY, 10 P.M.
‘The Bridge’ (FX) The critically acclaimed but ratings-challenged crime drama returns for its second season. Sonya encounters a man from her past and Marco discovers that he isn’t safe any longer in his own department. Frye and Adriana delve more deeply into the origins of the “money house” and a mystery woman crosses the bridge into El Paso, Texas.
THURSDAY, 9:01 P.M.
‘Welcome to Sweden’ (NBC) It’s appropriate that this new sitcom had its premiere in — where else? — Sweden ahead of its U.S. debut. Greg Poehler, above, brother of Amy (an executive producer here), plays a man who moves overseas to be with his true love. TRIBUNE MEDIA /E XPRESS
If you guide your hopes to a slightly lower orbit, CBS’s futuristic summer series “Extant,” starring Oscarwinner Halle Berry and premiering at 9 p.m. Wednesday, isn’t the disaster one might have feared — especially if you supply your own oxygen in the form of harmless mockery. As with nearly every piece of sciﬁ television programming of late, “Extant” quickly runs up its credit cards when it comes to borrowing imagery and ideas from other classics. Some scenes are heavily aped (including more than one nod to “Extant” executive producer Steven Spielberg’s own “A.I.,” as well as Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”), while some are just glancingly cribbed (“Solaris,” “Gravity”). In a quite stylish future, Berry is Molly Watts, a well-regarded astronaut who has recently returned from a solo mission on an outer-space lab, where she shared company with only an amiably voiced computer, a la “2001’s” HAL. Upon her return to her engineer husband John (Goran Visnjic) and their son, an artiﬁcially intelligent robot kid named Ethan (Pierce Gagnon), Molly discovers she’s mysteriously pregnant. Soon enough, she has to face her bosses at the international space agency, which is connected to a
Being in outer space on a solo mission is apparently giving astronaut Molly Watts (Halle Berry) quite a headache.
Backstory Mickey Fisher, “Extant’s” creator, was a theater director in New York before h e won a TV pilot contest with the show’s script, which eventually led to the series. Fisher told Variety that he made “Extant” in hopes of putting a new strong female lead on TV. “It just seemed like there was a place for this,” he said. “And not a female anti-hero but somebody who could be a hero but also be complex and interesting and at the top of her field.” (E XPRESS)
‘Extant’ quickly runs up its credit cards when it comes to borrowing imagery and ideas from other sci-ﬁ classics. corporation that oversees funding for robot children and everything else replete with a mastermind chief executive (Hiroyuki Sanada). The show gets off to a serviceable start — coolly conceived and professionally directed. “Extant’s” creator and cast seem to be taking things seriously enough as a work of sci-ﬁ origami, folded and layered
with a certain precision. The secret of what’s gestating inside Molly will perhaps be revealed over the course of “Extant’s” 13 episodes. In the meantime, the show delivers some truly dispiriting news about transportation: The self-driving Google car really does become a thing. HANK STEUVER (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Snowmen, Prepare Your Headshots: ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” which last season revealed it would incorporate characters from the Disney film “Frozen,” has cast the roles of Elsa, Anna and Kristoff. “Fringe’s” Georgina Haig, left, will play Elsa, “Greek” actor Scott Michael Foster will play Kristoff and newcomer Elizabeth Lail will take the role of Anna. TVLine reports the “Once” plot will pick up after the events of “Frozen.” (AP)

Old Crow’s bouncy new album has Bob Dylan’s special touch
Ketch Secor and Old Crow Medicine Show have Bob Dylan to thank for their new song “Sweet Amarillo.”
Music For years, Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show has been thanking Bob Dylan from afar for “Wagon Wheel,” the multiplatinum hit based on an unfinished Dylan song. The Americana band made it a fan favorite through their live shows over the past decade, and then Darius Rucker turned a cover into a No. 1 country song. The lead singer of Old Crow, whose new album “Remedy” came out Tuesday, likens his relationship with Dylan to a kid dropping letters in a bottle and tossing them in the ocean seeking a pen pal. “The bottle washed ashore on the beach in Malibu and Bob scrawled something into the bottle and he tossed it back into the Paciﬁc and it made its way to Music City,” Secor said. That response was another scrap of a song and a question: Would Secor want to take a crack at it? The snippet comes from the
GOODBYE, METRO DELAYS.
Not So Silent Partner
Album Review Lickety-split tempos and kitchen-sink arrangements make for a set that’s footstomping and grin-inducing. The string band’s wide range of influences ensures plenty of variety. “Brave Boys” recalls the Pogues, “Doc’s Day” is hillbilly blues and “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer” is a celebration of liberation. All seven band members sing on a couple of tunes, and the result is a glorious chorus. From start to finish, “Remedy” creates a mighty roar. STE VEN WINE (AP)

The North American box office was down 44 percent over July 4 weekend last year. “Tammy” followed, taking in $21.2 million. The horror movie “Deliver Us From Evil” came in third, with $9.5 million.

same Mexico writing sessions as the “Wagon Wheel” song fragment Secor would later embellish. From that came “Sweet Amarillo,” a waltz about a cowboy’s search for his lover. “The reason it sounds so catchy is because Bob said play the ﬁddle and get a good hook in your music,” Secor said. “That’s what a good catchy song does.” Dylan has remained silent on this new song, but Secor said he doesn’t need “Sweet Amarillo” to have the same success as “Wagon Wheel.” “To me, the success is the fruition of Bob hearing the song and sending another one,” Secor said. “It’s already done everything. It made a circle.” KRISTIN HALL (AP)

HOW HE PROPOSED: Back in D.C,. he steered her past a “stranger” with a dachshund (her favorite breed). The dog owner asked her to hold the dog and feed it a treat from the bag around its neck, which really contained the ring. CELEBRATING HERITAGE: They’ll celebrate their Italian heritage with the tarantella, and their “adopted” Malawian heritage with Malawian music for their first dance and a speech in Chichewa by a friend.
Kate, 31, works for a global health NGO. Michael, 27, is a consultant for the World Bank. They live in D.C. THE MAIN EVENT: They will wed Sept. 19 at a West Virginia winery. HOW THEY MET: In Malawi, where they were both working at the time. “I heard a rumor that there was a woman from the United States moving to our little town. One day I just walked up, knocked on her door, and gave her a big ‘welcome to the neighborhood’ hug!” FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “I actually didn’t even see his face or shake his

POST-WEDDING ADVENTURES: A family trip to Maine with both sets of parents, Sarah’s brothers and Penny. “It’s hard to get everyone in the same place as often as we’d like,” she says.

call him ‘Sweets.’ ” PET PEEVES: “She always trails off sentences into barely audible mumbles, and she never tightens the toothpaste cap.” “He doesn’t leave enough extra sheet folded over the comforter when he makes the bed.” WEDDING DO-OVER: Lee would have reversed the no-babies-atthe-wedding ban. Sarah: “I would have ordered a bigger cake. That thing was small!”
