Romney Booed at NAACP Event Criticism of Obama draws rebukes from a skeptical audience
Republicans steered the House toward yet another vote on repealing the nationâ€™s two-year-old health care law Wednesday. By Republican count, the vote marked the 33rd time in 18 months that the tea party-infused GOP majority has tried to eliminate, defund or otherwise scale back the program since taking office. The Democratic-controlled Senate will never agree. (AP) EVAN VUCCI/AP
>ekijed Unf linching before a skeptical NAACP crowd, Mitt Romney declared Wednesday heâ€™d do more for African-Americans than Barack Obama, the nationâ€™s first black president. He drew jeers when he lambasted the Democratâ€™s policies. â€œIf you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him,â€? Romney told the groupâ€™s annual convention. Pausing as some in the crowd heckled, he added, â€œYou take a look!â€? â€œFor real?â€? yelled someone in the crowd. The reception was occasionally rocky though generally polite as the Republican presidential candidate sought to woo a Democratic

bloc that voted heavily for Obama four years ago and is certain to do so again. Romney was booed when he vowed to repeal â€œObamacareâ€? and the crowd interrupted him when he accused Obama of failing to spark a more robust
economic recovery. At other points, Romney earned scattered clapping for his promises to create jobs and improve education. Four months before the election, Romneyâ€™s appearance at the
Judge Again Blocks State Abortion Law A federal judge Wednesday extended a temporary order to block a Mississippi law threatening to shut down the stateâ€™s only abortion clinic.

NAACP convention was a direct, aggressive appeal for support from across the political spectrum. Romney doesnâ€™t expect to win a majority of black voters â€” 95 percent backed Obama in 2008 â€” but heâ€™s trying to show independent and swing voters that heâ€™s willing to reach out to diverse audiences, while demonstrating that his campaign and the Republican Party he leads are inclusive.

JWbbW^Wii[["<bW$ The president of Florida A&M University submitted his resignation Wednesday, the same day the university was sued by parents of a drum major who died during a hazing. It was unclear whether the two events were related. James Ammons announced the resignation, which takes effect Oct. 11, in a letter to the chairman of the university’s governing board. He said his decision came after “considerable thought, introspection and conversations with my family.” The parents of Robert Champion, the drum major who was killed, applauded the move, calling it part of a necessary “house cleaning” at

the university. The college’s board of trustees will meet Monday to discuss a replacement and the speciﬁc terms of Ammons’ resignation. Ammons’ departure is the latest in a series of blows to the university that has seen its image badly bruised by Champion’s death, the suspension of the band until 2013 and the springtime resignation of the band’s veteran director. Eleven FAMU band members
face felony hazing charges, while two others face misdemeanor counts for alleged roles in Champion’s hazing. They have pleaded not guilty. Their trial also starts in October. Champion died in November after being beaten by fellow band members during a hazing ritual aboard a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel following a football game. Champion’s parents have already sued the bus company. GARY FINEOUT (AP)

D[mOeha Politicians will be excluded from speaking at this year’s Sept. 11 anniversary ceremony at ground zero, following a year in which families have expressed concern that political struggles are hindering progress on a 9/11 museum at the World Trade Center site. The foundation that controls the 9/11 memorial told family members that this year the reading of victims’ names by relatives will be “the exclusive focus of the program,” according to a letter sent to families Wednesday. It was the ﬁrst indication that the reading of the names would continue to be part of the ceremony as the 11th anniversary approaches. Some family members had protested after New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the foundation’s chair, had said he wasn’t sure whether names should be read now that they are already on display.
No event is seared in the memory of television viewers quite like the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. A study released Wednesday by Sony Electronics and the Nielsen television research company has found that only the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy comes close, and that was only among people aged 55 and over who were able to experience the coverage firsthand. (AP)
Disagreements over the site have intensiﬁed in recent weeks, with some accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of betraying the dead, and others accusing Bloomberg and the foundation of blocking progress and allowing costs to increase. Many family members have expressed concern that the site is sliding back into political dysfunction. SAMANTHA GROSS (AP)

Liberal parties held a lead Wednesday in partial results from Libya’s first parliamentary election, on the same day that Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the head of the interim government, stated his country would not be ruled by Islamists. Up to now, Islamists have taken dominant roles in countries that experienced Arab Spring revolts, such as Egypt and Tunisia. The overthrow of longtime ruler Moammar Gadhaﬁ left Libya without a cohesive regime. Gadhaﬁ, who

Russian Parliament OKs Law to Censor Internet CeiYem The Russian parliament passed a hastily introduced law Wednesday that allows the government to impose limits on the Internet, prompting fears it could prove a first step toward censorship of a previously unbridled forum.

Bloggers, media groups and rights defenders opposed it, feared it was not well thought out — it was introduced only last week — and could be loosely interpreted.

Some 2.7 million Libyans, making up more than 60 percent of eligible voters, cast their ballots for the first time in more than five decades on Saturday in the ﬁrst nationwide vote since the downfall of Gadhaﬁ. Assessing the partial election totals, Abdul-Jalil said Islamists would play a role in the country’s politics, but Libya would not follow in the footsteps of its neighbors, where Islamist parties won power in elections after uprisings last year.

After Heiress’ Death, Speculation Socialite, husband had long battle with addiction in Britain
BedZed When Eva Rausing approached the U.S. Embassy in London’s Grosvenor Square four years ago to deal with a routine passport matter, she had to pass through British security, then face a metal detector. The wealthy American tried to clear security with small amounts of crack cocaine, heroin and a banned stimulant in her purse. Her arrest led police to search the multimillion-dollar property she shared with her husband, Tetra Pak heir Hans Kristian Rausing. Police found more drugs. It made public what close family and friends already knew: The golden couple were mired in drug
Eva Rausing was born into a wealthy American family, and her husband, Hans Kristian Rausing, was an heir to the formidable Tetra Pak fortune — his father and his family have a spot on Britain’s “Rich List” with a net worth estimated at $6.7 billion. The money came from his family’s development of a better milk carton — one that could be packed and shipped like bricks, easing the distribution of milk and juices. The Rausings married in the 1980s and raised four children. (AP)
addiction even as they gave millions to anti-addiction charities. Their sad tale reached its climax this week when Rausing, 48, was found dead in their home and her husband arrested for questioning and placed in hospital care. The cause of death has not yet been established. Before the arrest, Rausing’s good looks, along with her husband and his friendly countenance, had
made the couple welcome participants on the London philanthropic scene. She was on several charity boards, focusing on those that helped ﬁght drug addiction. Evidence suggests Rausing’s drug use intensiﬁed after her arrest. Recent photographs showed that Rausing had become gaunt, and her once-stocky husband appeared thin and furtive, bearing slight resemblance to his former self. (AP)

Gray Urged to Quit MWi^_d]jed Three D.C. Council members on Wednesday called on Mayor Vincent Gray to step down after a guilty plea by a third associate as part of the ongoing federal investigation of his 2010 mayoral campaign. David Catania, I-At Large; Muriel Bowser, D-Ward 4; and Mary Cheh, D-Ward 3, became the ﬁrst elected ofﬁcials to call outright for his resignation. “The people you chose to surround yourself with engaged in a criminal conspiracy to undermine the election process in this city, which means as the leader of that campaign, you forfeit the fruits of that effort,” Catania said. A growing number of people asked Gray to explain what he knew about an apparently secret $653,000 effort to help him get elected. Public relations consultant Jeanne Clarke Harris admitted as part of a plea deal Tuesday that she helped disburse and conceal funds spent by businessman Jeffrey E. Thompson, a prominent city contractor, to evade campaign contribution limits. Federal prosecutors have not accused Gray, who has denied any wrongdoing. But Catania added that it was immaterial whether Gray knew about the other campaign. “Does any reasonable person believe that
JhekXb[Z 9WcfW_]d The U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI are conducting an investigation into aspects of Mayor Vincent Gray’s 2010 mayoral campaign finances and hiring practices. In May, two people involved in his campaign fundraising pleaded guilty to making illegal contributions and paying a third candidate to disparage then-mayor Adrian Fenty. On Tuesday, a third person pleaded guilty, and the investigation had broadened to include contributions to candidates dating back to 2003. (T WP)

Pleaded guilty July 10, describing a wellequipped “shadow campaign” to disburse and conceal $653,800 secretly paid by businessman Jeffrey E. Thompson.
“I don’t see how there is any way out except by him stepping aside,” Cheh said. At a regularly scheduled news conference Wednesday, Gray expressed concern about revelations of a secret fund to aid his election in 2010, but said he is still the best person to lead the city. “This is not the campaign that

Prosecutors say Vincent Gray’s mayoral campaign benefited from a secret fund of $653,000. The money bought about 10,000 yard signs, 6,500 T-shirts and 200 umbrellas in addition to banners, stickers, posters, consultants, canvassers, computers, radios and a public-address system. Many items had logos and designs identical to Gray’s official campaign materials, and many — “if not all” — of the items were delivered to Gray’s headquarters. (AP)
his full term, which ends in January 2015, Gray said, “I have no plans to do otherwise.” On Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen Jr., the city’s top federal prosecutor, described a secret $653,000 election effort that was not reported to campaign-ﬁnance authorities or disclosed to the public. Machen decried political corruption in the city, saying the mayoral race was “compromised by backroom deals, secret payments and a ﬂood of unreported cash.” Prosecutors did not allege that Gray had knowledge of the “shadow campaign,” but they said the effort was coordinated with members of his campaign. Tuesday’s revelations greatly expanded concerns — ﬁrst raised by minor mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown — that the city’s 2010 mayoral election was corrupted by illicit payoffs. Gray won the September 2010 primary by nearly 10 percentage points — 13,000 votes. His vote total was boosted in part by a better-than-expected turnout east of the Anacostia River, where Gray campaign workers have said the “shadow campaign” was focused.

Metro board’s safety and security committee are briefed. Both incidents came during a period of oppressively hot weather, and Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said high temperatures likely caused three cars on a Green Line train to derail Friday afternoon near the West Hyattsville station. After baking in 99-degree weather, a portion of the track apparently buckled. It took Prince George’s rescue workers about an hour to clear the train and lead the 55 passengers through a nearby tunnel and out a ventilation shaft that serves as an emergency exit. But since announcing Saturday that heat was the probable cause of
the derailment, Metro has refused to provide additional details, including when the stretch of track was last inspected. The Tri-State Oversight Committee, which investigates Metro accidents, is looking into both Green Line incidents. But the committee said that Metro, which is typically required to submit preliminary reports within three days, had been granted an extension until Thursday. Friday’s derailment was the second time in three months that one of Metro’s trains jumped the track with passengers aboard. In April, an outbound Blue Line train derailed at Rosslyn.

Since CNBC’s special report “America’s Top States for Business” started in 2007, Virginia has been among the top-ranked states, never falling below second. This year, Virginia lost its ﬁrstplace title to Texas, struggling in the Infrastructure & Transportation and Cost of Doing Business categories. The study scores all 50 states on 51 measures of competitiveness developed with input from business groups including the National Association of Manufacturers and the Council on Competitiveness, as well as input from the states. Further down the list is Maryland, dropping from last year’s 29th place to 31st.

NIH is studying a novel medication for rapid antidepressant response and its eďŹ€ect on memory & attention using neuroimaging. NIH researchers seek currently depressed persons ages 18- 55 to enroll in research studies evaluating how an FDA-approved drug, Scopolamine (for motion sickness) versus placebo can help with depression. In one study, the drug is given intravenously over 7- sessions (inpatient or outpatient), in the other the drug is given by patch over 12 sessions (outpatient). Participants must not be taking medications for three weeks prior to starting the study.
The studies are conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and may include brain imaging and attention and memory tasks to help understand the role of some brain chemicals in depression.

RHAPSODY IN BLUE At Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, the 19th-century Russian painting “Portrait of Countess Samoilova” inspired Belgian artist de Borchgrave to whip up a frock mimicking the one the subject wore. Every detail — the lace collar, the jeweled belt — is formed of painted, embellished paper.
Most designers setting out to create a ball gown start with paper — to sketch a concept or make a pattern. Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave doesn’t stop there. For the past two decades, de Borchgrave has used her painter’s aesthetic to form just-larger-than-life clothing from ordinary paper. “I play with a brush and paper; eventually it becomes this big thing,” she says. More than 25 of the artist’s fashion-meets-fantasy works are scattered throughout Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens through the end of the year as part of “Pret-àPapier: The Exquisite Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave.” Hillwood, the feminine, Russianand French-art-filled final home of cereal heiress/art collector Marjorie Merriweather Post, proves an ideal showcase for de Borchgrave’s pretty, tactile creations. After all, the crumpling, brush-stroking and pleating the artist and her atelier do to create the faux frocks, shoes and menswear are as much a fine craft as the techniques used to make Post’s stash of Fabergé eggs, Flemish tapestries and carved Parisian chairs. “We never count the hours it takes to do a dress,” says de Borchgrave, but it’s a minimum of a month-and-a-half’s work for several people to conjure up pieces like the ones headlining at Hillwood. The fashionable works, most with a historical bent, are strewn
SOLE SISTER “I love to do accessories in paper, but they’re harder than dresses,” de Borchgrave says. “And making a pair of shoes is difficult.” This black ballerina style boasts a dramatic red “ribbon.”

Side by side, the pairing evokes a ghostly double take. “The dress comes from the painting, an illusion of colors and fabrics you see there,” says de Borchgrave, who also molded ballet flats and a tiara mimicking

C_d_cWb_ij H[Ô[Yj_edi ;n^_X_ji Many viewers were surprised when abstract impressionist painter Barnett Newman first showed his “The Stations of the Cross: Lema Sabachthani” series at New York’s Guggenheim Museum in 1966. The 14-painting cycle, now on display in the National Gallery of Art’s Tower Gallery, even struck some as “ridiculous,” says Harry Cooper, the NGA’s curator of modern and contemporary art. Newman’s minimalist paintings are rendered in white, black and gray, often with expanses of raw canvas as a fourth “color.” Each features two vertical lines that Newman, who died in 1970,
called “zips.” How could these works depict Jesus’ route to the crucifixion? (And wasn’t Newman Jewish, anyway?) “He tried to discourage the idea that each painting was one of the stations,” Cooper says. Rather, the cycle, painted between 1958 and 1966, was meant to express the anguish of Jesus’ question: “Why have you forsaken me?” Newman was a “not-very-observant Jew” who wanted the series “to be about the question of God, especially in a postHolocaust context,” Cooper says. Like other 20th-century painters, Newman was “trying somehow to broach great, tragic subjects with just abstract means,” Cooper says. But the artist’s work is today prized more for its elegance and luminosity. “Newman talked about the paintings in terms of light,” Cooper says. “Creating light out of these very simple means.”

Abstract painter Barnett Newman’s ‘Stations of the Cross’ continues to intrigue

9_d[cWj_YIekdZjhWYa French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux composes a new record full of vivid, moving imagery Inside French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux’s mind is a constantly unfolding film. “I’m super fond of DVD commentaries,” she says, explaining the inspiration for her latest disc, “La Bala.” “So, I imagined this album almost like a tragic movie. I was imagining everything as scene one, scene two, scene three.” Spitting Spanish-language verses in a Chilean lilt, Tijoux not only
Many of Ana Tijoux’s songs deal with recent political unrest in Chile.
narrates stories of tragedy, violence and dissent but also comments on them as they unfold — a tricky toggle between perspectives.
Take the title track, a grim account of a murder. “The first verse talks about this bullet arriving to this guy who’s
going to die — and, boom!” Tijoux says. “During the chorus, the dead are dancing around him and laughing. The second verse is the mother finding the body of her son on the floor, and she’s crying and screaming. The dead are super afraid of her. I was imagining them as a Greek chorus.” Of course, listeners who don’t speak Spanish are unlikely to pick up on the subtleties or meanings of her lyrics, but that hasn’t stopped the trilingual rapper from finding audiences all over the world. Tijoux — who was born in France after her parents fled Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship of Chile in the 1970s — has toured the U.S. several times and received a Grammy nomination for her previous album, “1977.” Even as she becomes a global figure, Tijoux remains rooted in Chile — so much so that “La Bala”
That’s one of the reasons Cooper selected “The Stations,” supplemented by other Newman works, for the museum’s intimate, daylight-rich Tower Gallery. “The Stations” and most of the other pieces are owned by the NGA, but they have not been presented like this before. “The works have a lot of drama in themselves, with those zips like lightning bolts,” Cooper says. “Then there’s the drama of seeing them up there, in all that light.” MARK JENKINS (FOR E XPRESS)

serves as a commentary track on the state of the nation during the ongoing student protests that began in May 2011. She recorded the album in the capital city of Santiago as young students took to the streets to decry decreases in education funding. “My country is very small and it’s at the end of the world,” she says. “So, all these protests were like the waking of an entire country. It’s not only about students now. It’s about everybody asking questions.” Still, Tijoux doesn’t see herself as an especially political artist, just someone who’s engaged with her surroundings. “I’ve got a lot of questions, and I feel like the music allows me to reflect on what’s going on.” STEPHEN M.

COURTESY KENNEDY CENTER
:Wl_ZAWb[o COSTUME DESIGNER The Addams Family came to life as characters in cartoons in the New Yorker magazine, penned by macabre genius Charles Addams. The kooky clan, immortalized on TV and in movies, also has the ultimate mark of fame: a Broadway musical. With “The Addams Family” in town for a short run at the Kennedy Center, associate costume designer David Kaley discussed the family’s look and Morticia’s dress.
What did you look at when you started designing the costumes? This production came out of the cartoons from the New Yorker. We didn’t want it to feel like the movie[s]. We didn’t want it to feel like the TV show. We really wanted to go back to the source material.
Richard Diebenkorn’s abstract canvases evoke California dreaming with no palm trees in sight
Ifejb_]^j “Ocean Park #83” has been in the Corcoran’s collection since 1975, the year it was painted. Brookman calls it “one of the most beautiful abstractions I know, a kind of symphony of color that evokes a Southern California suburban landscape.” The curator likes the way the painting reveals its depths and Diebenkorn’s technique. “He allows the viewer to see into the painting, through many layers. He leaves a lot of clues as to what he’s done before.” M.J.
;n^_X_ji The works in “Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series,” on view through Sept. 23 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, are not exactly representational. The series is named for a Santa Monica neighborhood, though, and its imagery hints at what might be seen there: surf, turf and sky. “The paintings certainly evoke landscapes,” says Philip Brookman, the Corcoran’s coordinating curator for the exhibition. “But Diebenkorn was very clear

There’s a hand-painted quality to a lot of the clothes. There’s a hand-drawn feel we try to incorporate. The clothes are painted or dyed or embroidered so they feel more like the drawings.
Was it hard to redesign something so familiar to so many people? The look for the family is so iconic. We felt a responsibility to make sure that when the lights come up, you know exactly who they are.
How hard is it, exactly, for Morticia to walk in that dress? It’s not as tricky as you might think, but it takes a little theatrical magic and a lot of coordination and talent on the part of our Morticia. But I’ve never seen a Morticia go down. FIONA ZUBLIN (EXPRESS)

that the paintings are abstraction.” While New York’s abstract expressionists rejected representation, the Oregon-born, California-based Diebenkorn started out as a figurative painter. The artist, who lived from 1922 to 1993, moved toward a style that emphasized gridded compositions as well as bands and blocks of rich, layered color. But he never lost his sense of place. Diebenkorn’s art is clearly West Coast, Brookman says. “Even in his most abstract images, you still get a sense of the light in Southern California.”
CORCORAN GALLERY OF ART
How did you get the cartoon look?
Diebenkorn’s “Ocean Park #79” suggests water and a beach sunset.
The artist’s canvases can be found in most museums with significant holdings of modern American art. But his drawings and prints are seen less often. This show includes them, demonstrating the breadth of the “Ocean Park” works, which occupied the artist from 1967 to 1988. “I don’t know of another show that combined paintings, drawings and prints exclusively from the ‘Ocean Park’ series,” Brookman says. “That’s what’s unique about this show.” The works on paper are “more accessible” and offer “a simpler view of his work,” adds the curator, who organized a show of Diebenkorn drawings while still an undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1973. Diebenkorn’s style reflects the influence of Picasso and Matisse and his own experiences viewing this country’s agricultural patchwork from the air. “He’s taking in all the things he sees, in a very personal way,” Brookman says of “Ocean Park.” The result, he concludes, is nothing less than “one of the high points of American painting.” MARK JENKINS (FOR E XPRESS)

Fringe exposes us all to new forms of performance — after all, it’s a lot easier to commit yourself to art when it’s cheap and relatively short. Brian Feldman’s performance art piece (“Show is a relative term,” he says) is called “BFF” and sells only one ticket per performance. “It’s about what it’s like to spend two hours with a stranger,” Feldman says. “Hopefully, there are people out there who are willing to get to know someone.”

Fringe brings together dozens of small theater groups from all over the country to perform in makeshift spaces around the city. Tickets are cheap ($17, plus a $5-$7 Fringe button, see below), and the shows, while a mixed bag, have a homegrown vitality that can be hard to find at more polished D.C. theaters. Kickstarter, a website where artists, activists and others can solicit donations for projects, is a natural fit for the festival, and Fringe HQ estimates that 30 to 50 of this year’s 134 plays were funded through the site.

“In This Economy” explores the trope of slacker dude and exasperated girlfriend.
É?dJ^_i;YedecoÊ John Krizel’s play, which follows a young man in his aimless postcollege phase whose new girlfriend encourages him to get his life together, may be a little bit based on his own life. This is Krizel’s first Fringe show. “I wrote this play in my bedroom and just sent it in to Fringe on a whim,” he says. “They accepted it, and I was like, ‘This is great! And now I have to spend all this money that I don’t have.’” But then, through Kickstarter (which he used, he says, “because I am very poor”), he raised more than double his $1,200 goal.

Special bonus: You can also show it at such local businesses as Ping Pong Dim Sum or Nellie’s during Fringe to get nifty discounts.
‘D.C. Trash’ This newspaper might be the place to read dirt on Washington politicos, but an even more intimate view of the District’s underbelly lies with Tenleytown Trash. Written and performed by real-life garbage-truck driver Ron Litman, “D.C. Trash” looks at our city’s debris, both figurative and literal. Litman grew up working at his parents’ Wisconsin Avenue deli but split for showbiz in New York and L.A. He returns for Fringe to present this play, which even features a character modeled on everyone’s favorite trashy D.C. celebrity, ex-”Real Housewife” Michaele Salahi.

A grad-school project united the play’s three writers — AfricanAmerican Michelle Whittaker, mixedrace Nileah Bell and African Mary Nyingi — around their shared hair heritage. The play, which premiered at the D.C.

‘Ballplayer: Pelotero’ slams MLB over its scouting tactics in the Dominican Republic IYh[[d “If you were 12 and your parents told you you could either play baseball all day, every day, and maybe make millions of dollars, or go to school, what would you do?” The question, from Trevor Martin, one of the directors of the new documentary “Ballplayer: Pelotero,” isn’t necessarily rhetorical. That’s the choice presented to many preteens in the Dominican Republic, where Martin and co-directors Ross Finkel and Jonathan Paley spent nine months filming kids with dreams of playing in America’s big leagues. Major League Baseball, for its part, dreams of finding cheap, young talent. Cheaply. Dominican kids can be offered professional contracts at age 16 (though few are). Players who aren’t signed by 17 are considered washed up and their market value drops precipitously, the movie suggests. “MLB [says] it’s 16, and 16 it is,” Martin says. “When you offer big bonuses to a very small amount of kids who happen to play like professionals and have the bodies to play like grown men, it gives you a perverted reason to go to the nor-

mal kids who develop at a normal rate and say, ‘You weren’t ready at 16, so now you’re worth $10,000 instead of $2 million.’” The film, opening locally Friday, follows two Dominican phenoms, Miguel Angel Sano and Jean Carlos Batista, who are at that crucial age — or are they? Because 16 is the magic number, the temptation to lie about a player’s age is strong,
and accusations of fraud from MLB are not uncommon. When a player can’t prove he is who he says he is — which isn’t so easy in a country where public records can be sketchy — he’s slapped with a one-year ban on playing for MLB. So, his price drops. “It’s definitely a cynical business strategy,” Martin says. The film emphasizes that Sano and Batista are each the best hope
for their impoverished families, a situation that’s all too common in the Dominican Republic. “We met k ids dow n t here whose parents encouraged them to drop out of school and play baseball. Their parents had a sitdown with them and said, ‘Well, son, you can either go to school and be a motorcycle taxi driver or cut cane, or you can play baseball and maybe win the lottery.’” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

Did It Just Get Hotter Out Here? The granddaddy of all D.C. outdoor film fests, Screen on the Green, returns this year for its 14th season of sprawling out on America’s biggest lawn: the National Mall. The series begins Monday with the 1969 Western “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” The classic earned its place in film history as the only movie to successfully combine train robberies, cowboy hats and the music of Burt Bacharach. Paul Newman and Robert Redford ruggedly star in the real-life story of outlaws on the run from a sheriff’s posse. Truly, there is nothing hunkier than handsome cowboys who deliver snappy one-liners and are handy with guns. “Magic Mike” who? National Mall between 7th and 12th streets NW; Mon.,

JhW_d_d]M^[[bi7h[E\\ When the PORC food truck rolled out onto the streets of D.C. in January 2011 with a menu focused on barbecue sandwiches, it was a fast success. Sales were strong and fans were dedicated. But there were drawbacks: no booze, no seating and, of course, no permanent location. Those issues were resolved last month when co-owners Josh Saltzman, Trent Allen and a few partners opened a restaurant in Columbia Heights called Kangaroo Boxing Club. Though the name

(inspired by an inside joke among the owners) is different, the menu includes some of PORC’s signature dishes, as well as more appetizers, entrees and a full bar. “It’s the things you can’t logistically pull off in a two-hour period inside a 6-by-10 metal box,” Saltzman says. He’s not the only mobile proprietor to have sought a fixed address. Local food truck owners are increasingly using wheeled start-ups as a way to test concepts with the public, perfect recipes and create buzz. During these tough economic times, money — or a lack of it — often is the driving reason why entrepreneurs start out with wheels. “We always wanted a brick-andmortar location,” Saltzman says.

District Taco, helmed by Marc Wallace, above left, and Osiris Hoil, above right, was a truck-only enterprise for more than a year before it branched out to permanent locations in Arlington, left, and D.C. At both restaurants, customers can order the truck’s tacos and burritos, as well as new items such as quesadillas and ceviche.
“The whole intent of the truck was to build up enough capital and get our brand out there.” Kangaroo Boxing Club was financed in part by PORC’s profits and promoted to its fans via social media. Both elements were key to getting it opened — and packed — its first weekend without spending any advertising dollars. That story probably sounds a little familiar to District Taco owners Marc Wallace and Osiris Hoil. They’d wanted to open a Mexican restaurant in 2009 but lacked the financing. Instead, they started a food cart — “a cheaper way to make the dream happen,” Wallace says. The concept was a hit, giving the partners enough money to finally open a restaurant in Arlington in late 2010 and another in D.C. this May. (Wallace won’t ever get rid of the cart, however. When he’s not parking it in long-favored hot spots, he uses it as a research drone with which to scout other neighborhoods for future restaurants.) Similar goals propelled Pleasant Pops, which rolled out its first mobile eatery in July 2010, selling ice pops inspired by Mexi-

street treats called “paletas.” “We got to see a lot of different neighborhoods, meet a bunch of people, get our brand out there and tell people our story,” says communications director AnneMarie Ashburn. “It also allowed us to establish relationships with the farmers and suppliers who provide our ingredients.” Those connections turned out to be key, since Pleasant Pops crowdsourced some of the money for its first fixed location through the fundraising platform Kickstart er.com. Ultimately, Pleasant Pops raised more than $26,000 from more than 400 donors, who will be thanked in writing on the wall of the Pleasant Pops Farmhouse Market &
Cafe, which is aiming to open by late August in Adams Morgan. A month after that, Far East Taco Grille — a food truck since September 2011 — hopes to open its first grab ’n’ go eatery on 15th Street NE. For owner Alex Cho, the move made financial sense, as he was renting space in another restaurant to prepare food. The new space will serve as both his prep kitchen and a new revenue stream, even as his truck continues curbside service. All of the owners agree that there are pros and cons to each sort of setup. Wallace boils down the differences: “Trucks are a lot sexier than a brick-and-mortar. But a brick-andmortar is better at making money.” NE VIN MARTELL (FOR E XPRESS)

I almost wimped out when I ordered lunch two weeks ago from the Peanut Butter Jelly Time food truck (PBJ truckdc.com, which, unlike the other food vendors on this page, is a wheelsonly operation). Fully aware that the menu included oddball options, I still spent a long time agonizing over whether to order a daring yet unappetizingsounding sandwich, such as the ”PBJBLT” ($5; peanut butter, bacon, lettuce, tomato and red pepper jelly), or 8oAWj_[ the very safe “Classic” 7X[hXWY^ ($3, or $5 for two; peanut butter and grape jelly). But I came to my senses and realized it would be ridiculous to pay even $3 for something I could make at home. Time to be bold! So I ordered the “Spicy Pig” ($6). Before I tell you what’s in it, let me just say that, somehow, it tasted great. Here’s what sat between the two slices of wheat bread: creamy peanut butter, red pepper jelly, spicy Sambal (an Asian condiment made with chili), prosciutto, bacon, potato chips and apple slices. The blend of the Sambal, pepper jelly and peanut butter anchored the sandwich with a fiery, nutty base of flavor that complemented the sweet and salty stuff. Getting a taste of everything in a single bite reminded me of Thai food — which I love. There’s also a good mix of textures: crunchy apple and chips, chewy bacon, delicate prosciutto, gooey peanut butter. All right, I know this sounds (and looks) like the work of a kindergartner. I only said it tasted good. I never said it was pretty. Read Katie’s column every other week here and at Expressnightout.com.

Statistically speaking, London doesn’t quite live up to its reputation as the ultimate soggy city, with its average annual rainfall of 23.6 inches actually lower than Paris, New York or Washington. Rather, its rainy rap is earned more from frequently overcast skies that more often drizzle than pour buckets, with its fast-moving island weather tending to push strong storms through the urban area relatively quickly.

Officials and athletes make plans to combat Britain’s rainiest summer on record
Less than three weeks before the start of the 2012 Olympics, British officials and athletes around the globe are bracing for a dark threat to the London Games: English weather. In a city universally besmirched as climatically challenged and about which Jane Austen once wrote, “In London, it is always a sickly season,” early Olympic forecasts are cloudy, with a chance of chaos. As Britain copes with what is so far the wettest summer since records began in 1910, meteorological “war rooms” are being set up at the Olympic Park in East London as well as in other British host cities including Eton and Weymouth. Suggesting scenes of mud-caked Olympians ahead, torrential downpours have already wreaked havoc at recent British sporting events, including massive disruptions that turned at least 10,000 spectators away from the Formula 1 race at Silverstone last week. In June, areas across the nation saw

double the average rainfall, with July also bringing ﬂash ﬂoods that continue to turn roads into rivers and inundate homes and businesses in parts of the country. Extended forecasts suggest that while the bouts of heavy rain may abate, London weather could still be wetter than the already-moist average for much of the 2012 Games — testing years-in-the-making transit
IjehcJheef[hi Outdoor sports could clearly be most affected by prolonged rain. But London Olympic planners, acutely aware of the weather challenges for years, have gone to great lengths to minimize potential disruptions. They’ve planted special grass and built a filtration system into the equestrian courses, a move that could prevent a repeat of two recent equestrian events in the English countryside canceled because of heavy rains. Officials ordered up a tailor-made “bespoke cover” for the BMX bike track in East London, above, to ensure it keeps dry. Five different sailing routes have been identified to cope with possible weather issues. Five full-time meteorologists will be attached to the Olympic Park, with staffing 24 hours a day. And additional days of competition are being built into several sports — like rowing and tennis — where weather can be an enormous factor. (T WP)
planning and potentially affecting the medal count. Athletes, experts say, are competing at levels so high that every advantage counts, with inclement weather sometimes throwing even top players off their game. American high jumper Jesse Williams, the world record holder, for instance, struggled in the rain during Olympic qualiﬁers, barely making it onto the U.S. team. With a history of not performing his best in precipitation, Williams has opted to skip time with his coach in Manhattan, Kan., where temperatures are topping 100 degrees. Instead, he has shifted much of his training to Eugene, Ore., where the damp, temperate climate more closely mimics the conditions in London. “He’s been challenged by inclement weather before, but he’s recognized what he’s likely to encounter in London and he’s decided to train more in Oregon,” said Cliff Rovelto, U.S. high jump coach. “It’s just one factor, one that’s been at the back of his mind.” Others, meanwhile, are praying for rain. American Khadevis Robinson, competing in the 800 meters, said the wet weather has in the past proved to be a problem for David Rudisha, the Kenyan favorite. “You know, he’s only lost twice in the last couple of years, both times in rain, which, by his own admission, is something he says is challenging for him,” Robinson said. “As an athlete, you use this to tell yourself, OK, maybe this gives me an opening, maybe this gives me a chance. Because it’s London, and you know it’s going to rain.” ANTHONY FAIOL A (THE WASHINGTON POST )

But the show’s fifth and final season 8oCWhY launches Sunday I_bl[h (AMC, 10 p.m.), so it’s NOW or NEVER. To prepare for the premiere, I watched one episode from the fourth season. It was indeed SO GOOD. And SO INTENSE. As the meth-cooking teacher, Bryan Cranston, above, is scary intense. He gets in a bloody brawl with his “loser addict” protegee. Someone’s head is blown off. For comic relief, Cranston’s accountant wife foils an IRS investigation by displaying intense amounts of cleavage and pretending to be a ditz. Then I went to bed and dreamed I was being frisked by TSA, and I had cocaine on me that I don’t know how I got, and I was so afraid they would find the drugs. So, you know where I’ll be Sunday night: sipping lemonade and watching HGTV’s “Celebrity Motor Homes.” Read Marc’s previous columns at: expressnightout.com/muse
Singer Frank Ocean lays his feelings bare on ‘Channel Orange’
Behind the Music Frank Ocean’s sexuality has put his name in the headlines, but his talents as a singer and songwriter should not be overlooked. Last year, Ocean released a lovely digital album, “Nostalgia, Ultra”; he’s helped pen songs for Justin Bieber, John Legend and Beyonce; he sang the most exquisite hook on Kanye West and Jay-Z’s 2011 album “Watch the Throne”; and he’s made standout contributions as a member of the rowdy rap collective Odd Future. (T WP/E XPRESS)
In a Tumblr post last week, Frank Ocean revealed that his first love was a man.
7bXkcH[l_[m When Frank Ocean addressed speculation about his sexuality last week, the declaration on his Tumblr page felt lyrical. “Time would glide,” the R&B singer wrote, eloquently transporting us a few summers back to when he met his first love — a man. Suddenly, Ocean, 24, had become the ﬁrst mainstream R&B artist to go public about a romance that previous generations would have ﬁercely fought to conceal. But Ocean’s announcement has
9^Wdd[b EhWd][ Frank Ocean
been greeted with a support that’s beginning to feel emblematic of the country’s changing attitudes about homosexuality. Ocean’s major-label debut, “Channel Orange,” shows a surefooted conﬁdence that took many of his forebears years to summon. Reimagining the melodic sensibilities of Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder and the evaporated song structures of D’Angelo, Maxwell and Erykah Badu, he’s forging his own brand of neo-neo-soul. And he’s an incred ibly gift-

ed narrator. Each song on this album tells a story in high-deﬁnition detail, some tales more cryptic than others. That’s why “Channel Orange” is an album best experienced with your eyes closed. Listen carefully and the plot will unfold on your eyelids. He’s at his most revealing with the spartan ballad “Bad Religion.” It opens with a church organ and Ocean singing from the backseat of a taxi where he asks the driver to be his “shrink for the hour” in hopes that they can “outrun the demons.” The song’s closing couplet offers the album’s most confessional moment: “It’s a bad religion to be in love with someone who could never love you / And only bad religion could have me feeling the way I do.” It’s a paralyzing turn of phrase, but there’s no angst in his loneliness — just a somber self-awareness rarely expressed so profoundly in song.

;njhWÉ=Wc[iÊ0 The final book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy is coming to the big screen in two parts. Lionsgate Films says “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” will be released Nov. 21, 2014, and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2” will follow on Nov. 20, 2015. The filmmakers are using the template set by two other teen literary franchises, “Harry Potter” and “Twilight,” whose final books were split into two films. (AP)

Dave Longstreth has a voice like cilantro. You’ll devour it or gag. The Dirty Projectors frontman sings in dramatic, gravity-averse curlicues that can make dense lyrics feel light. They can also make Longstreth sound like a bit of a show off. But if those vocal loop-deloops aren’t a deal-breaker, it’ll be easy to lose yourself in “Swing Lo Magellan,” his band’s latest bundle

of humanity: “There was a single one/Then there were 10/Ten made a 100/And a hundred million.” But before the proceedings get too esoteric, the song explodes with classic rock guitar riffage that may trigger head-banging. It’s followed by “About to Die,” a delightfully chirpy tune about existential dread. “Look there, the mirror,” Longstreth sings during the
song’s bridge, “A zombie stands staring, vacant and glaring/Pronouncing your name as his own.” The music works against that harsh imagery, with drums that pop like Calgon bubbles and covocalists Amber Coffman and Haley Dekle softly ooh-ooh-oooh-ing in the background, as if being conducted by Phil Spector. Heavily littered with snippets of studio chatter, “Unto Caesar” spells out the fact that, yes, this topsy-turvy music was made by actual human beings. But that should already be clear to anyone who has listened to this intimate album’s 11 other tracks. CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

“Have we gotten so riven by self-hatred in this country that even Kate Upton’s body can still be subjected to this nastiest and most personal of public critiques?” — JENNA SAUERS AT JEZEBEL .COM reacts to a post on Skinny Gossip.com that insulted the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model’s runway appearance in Miami by saying, among other things, that she walked down the runway “like there’s a buffet at the end of it” and called Upton a “little piggie.”

“How does one, as a crappy fast food chain known for its Grade Z taco meat, overcome a relatively horrific reputation in the restaurant industry? Pull a ridiculous stunt, videotape it, and set it to some Explosions in the Sky and voila! You come off looking like you’ve just airlifted medical supplies to needy deployed military servicemen!” — MARIELLA MOSTHOF AT THEBRAISER.COM did not like Taco Bell’s “Operation: Alaska” commercial that features Bethel, Alaska, after the town was fooled by a hoax last week that the chain was opening a restaurant there. Taco Bell decided to send a food truck via helicopter to serve the townspeople.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may have trouble pinpointing just what your target will be today, but you know that you have to be accurate in all efforts. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You enjoy doing things that bring you a unique kind of satisfaction that is difficult to share. A loved one knows whatâ€™s important to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have only so much time to fulfill a promise made to those who depend on you for much more than mere information. Get to work! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are likely to discover that what youâ€™ve been relying on so much in the past isnâ€™t really satisfying you these days. Itâ€™s time for a change. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You donâ€™t have to get everything done at once today; pace yourself, and address obstacles one at a time for best results.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Youâ€™ve waiting a long time for a certain someone to give you what youâ€™ve most desired â€” and today is likely to be the day! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Youâ€™re likely to find a great deal of meaning in even the most seemingly trivial of events and developments. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Itâ€™s no good harping on things you cannot change; rather, address those things you know you can influence in a positive way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Before doing what must be done, you may have time to do one or two things that are purely recreational â€” but keep an eye on the clock!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The social scene provides opportunity and danger today, and you must be able to discern the one from the other at every turn.
