Tom Hanks to receive National Archives honor
‘Got Talent’ airs audition of late Va. man
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
THE DISTRICT More and more people seem to forget, or don’t even know (because they weren’t born yet), how oppressively hot it felt during the early years of our nation’s capital, before the age of air conditioning. Throughout history, there were hundreds of legendary efforts to cool and dehumidify the air during the torrid heat waves that enveloped the region. Most of these efforts, however, fell short, as they were impractical, of limited value or quite expensive. Consider the “device” that helped to cool the dying President James Garfield in 1881. It involved air blown through ice waterdoused cotton sheets. Although this worked in that it cooled the room substantially, it required an expensive half-million pounds of ice every two months. Whitehousehistory.org chronicles attempts of other pre-central air presidents to keep cool, most
“America’s Got Talent” has aired the audition of a contestant who died in a car accident last month. Brandon Rogers, a family physician from Portsmouth, Va., tried out for the show in March. He earned a standing ovation and a trip to the next round of the NBC reality competition after singing Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky.” Rogers, 29, died following a June 10 car accident in Maryland in which he was a passenger. The show said it aired the audition Tuesday at the request of Rogers’ family. (AP)
President William Howard Taft built a sleeping porch on the White House roof to beat the heat after an earlier attempt at air conditioning failed.
of which were unsuccessful. For example, it notes President William Howard Taft’s futile effort: “President William Howard Taft also attempted to install a type of air conditioning in the expanded West Wing in 1909. The experimental system consisted of electric fans that blew over great bins of ice in the attic, cooling the air, which was forced through the air ducts of the heating system. This never worked well enough and was soon abandoned.” Subsequent presidents through
the 1920s had no better luck: “[Woodrow] Wilson found it so difficult to keep cool during early summer 1914 that he moved his office into a tent on the southwest corner of the White House at the end of the Rose Garden,” whitehousehistory .org writes. And “President Calvin Coolidge fought the humid summer months by making sure ‘a gadget filled with chemicals supposed to purify, or at least deodorize, the air’ was on his desk at all times,” it notes.

Does Virginia race have GOP sweating? After a close primary, leaders urge Gillespie to embrace Trump
Former RNC head Ed Gillespie will face Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam for governor.
Va. city leads U.S. in opioid prescriptions STEVE HELBER (AP)
VIRGINIA Alarmed that Ed Gillespie barely won the Virginia GOP primary for governor in June, top Republicans from the White House on down are pushing him to hire some of the president’s strategists and more aggressively court Trump voters, according to Republicans with direct knowledge of those efforts. In addition, the Republican National Committee has taken charge of field operations for the Gillespie campaign, according to two Republicans who called it a sign that the national party is worried about Gillespie’s team. Aligning with Trump strategists could be a stomach-churner for Gillespie, whose résumé reads establishment Republican: counselor to President George W. Bush and former Republican National Committee chairman. Gillespie got behind Trump only after he had sewn up the 2016 nomination. Now, Gillespie studiously avoids discussing the president. Running a campaign in the Trump style could be risky in purple Virginia, where Trump’s approval rating was 36 percent in a Washington Post-Schar School poll in May. So far, Gillespie

has resisted the advice — to the chagrin of activists who say his campaign against Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, desperately needs shaking up. The course Gillespie takes will have meaning not only in November but also in 2018, when scores of other Republicans running for state and federal offices in swing districts across the country try to win over Trump voters as well as those repelled by the president. “Gillespie is the next Republican candidate to wrestle with the factions of the Republican Party and the challenge of also needing independent voters,” said Nathan L. Gonzales, editor of the nonpartisan Inside Elections. In the primary, Gillespie was strongest in Northern Virginia but lost the largely white, rural
vote in Southwest and Southside Virginia — Trump country — to his GOP rival, Corey Stewart. Still, GOP strategists critical of Trump say Gillespie, who had the support of 91 percent of Republicans in a recent Quinnipiac poll, should keep his distance. “Ed is going to have a difficult enough time winning with Trump in the White House,” said John Weaver, chief strategist for Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s 2016 presidential bid. “Adding Trump’s bullying, foolish staff — who focus on narrow casting and messaging to the lowest common denominator — would dramatically decrease Ed’s chances in a state, as a Republican, where you have to build a broad coalition in order to win.” LAURA VOZZELLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)
A new report ranks Martinsville, Va., first in the nation in per capita opioid prescriptions. WDBJ-TV reports that the ranking is according to a report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The report analyzed prescriptions from 59,000 pharmacies around the country in 2015. Opioids come in different strengths, so researchers devised a standard measure comparing them to morphine. Nationwide, it found the amount of opioids prescribed was the equivalent of 640 milligrams of morphine per person in 2015. In Martinsville, that figure was more than 4,000 milligrams, higher than any other town or county for which data was available. (AP)
Heat advisory issued as temps soar
The summer’s hottest days so far have arrived and have a chance to threaten long-standing records in the region. If the temperature reaches 100 today, it would tie the record established in 1954. Factor in the humidity, and it will feel about 5 degrees hotter. Because the heat index could potentially hit 105 degrees today, the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for the region. On Wednesday, the D.C. government activated its heat emergency plan because temperatures were expected to reach at least 95. The plan opens cooling centers throughout the city. The emergency plan will almost certainly be in effect today, too. (TWP)

Mass extinction inevitable? Study says the window is closing for stopping ‘biological annihilation’
Ice-shelf break creates iceberg of historic size GUILLAUME SOUVANT (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
ENVIRONMENT Have humans damaged the Earth’s ecosystems so severely that we’re well on our way to the biggest mass extinction since the dinosaurs vanished 66 million years ago? And are we running out of time to reverse the negative impacts of our actions? Three scientists who have studied extinctions of thousands of species of vertebrates believe so, although others are skeptical of the doomsday-like findings. A new study published Monday paints a grim picture: The populations of nearly 9,000 vertebrate species, including mammals such as cheetahs, lions and giraffes, significantly declined between 1900 and 2015. Almost 200 species have gone extinct in the past 100 years alone — a rate of two per year. “This is the case of a biological annihilation occurring globally, even if the species these populations belong to are still present somewhere on Earth,” Rodolfo Dirzo, the study’s co-author and a Stanford University biology professor, said in a news release. The researchers analyzed 27,600 species of birds, amphibians, mammals and reptiles — about half of all known vertebrate species — and found that 8,851 (about 32 percent) have seen declining populations and shrinking areas of habitat. A detailed analysis of 177 species of mammals
Lions once ranged from Europe to India and all of Africa, but now are found primarily in sub-Saharan Africa.
found that more than 40 percent have experienced significant population declines. The authors describe the shrinking population of species as “a massive erosion of the greatest biological diversity in the history of Earth. “Thus, we emphasize that the sixth mass extinction is already here and the window for effective action is very short, probably two or three decades at most,” the authors write. A few examples: There were only slightly more than 7,000 cheetahs in existence last year, and their population might drop another 53 percent in the next 15 years, according to National Geographic. Borneo and Sumatran orangutans have been considered endangered for years mainly because of loss of habitat. The population of African
Past extinction study The study released this week is not the first to make the case that Earth is already in the middle of the sixth mass extinction. Two years ago, some of the same researchers argued that species are disappearing at a rate unparalleled since the Cretaceous mass extinction of dinosaurs. The 2015 study found that vertebrate species have been disappearing at up to about 100 times the normal rate over the last century. (TWP)
lions has dropped by more than 40 percent in the past 20 years. West African lions, in particular, are nearing extinction, with only about 400 left. But some in the scientific community disagree with the study’s grim findings. Doug Erwin,
curator at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, said placing the ongoing extinctions of species in the same playing field as the mass extinction events in history, or the Big Five, amounts to “junk science.” Stuart Pimm, head of conservation ecology at Duke University, said the study unnecessarily raises alarms by saying the Earth is already in the midst of a cataclysmic event. Pimm believes the sixth mass extinction is just beginning, and not well on its way. “It’s a little bit dramatic,” Pimm said. “Yes, we are driving species to extinction a thousand times faster than we should. So yes, there is a problem. But on the other hand, telling people that we’re all doomed and going to die isn’t terribly helpful.” KRISTINE PHILLIPS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

ENVIRONMENT Scientists announced Wednesday that a much-anticipated break at the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica has occurred, unleashing a massive iceberg that is more than 2,200 square miles in area and weighs a trillion tons. The break was detected by multiple satellites. The iceberg — among the largest in recorded history to splinter off the continent — is close to the size of Delaware and consists of almost four times as much ice as the fast-melting ice sheet of Greenland loses in a year. It is expected to be given the name “A68” soon, scientists said. Its volume is twice that of Lake Erie, according to Project MIDAS, a research group based in Britain monitoring it. Scientists have said global warming has caused a thinning of ice shelves. In this case, the ice was already afloat, so there won’t be a substantial sea level change. The iceberg is also unlikely to pose any threat to shipping. The Project MIDAS group said Wednesday that the effect of the break is to shrink the size of the floating Larsen C ice shelf by 12 percent. The group fears that this could have a destabilizing effect on the remainder of the shelf, among Antarctica’s largest. The change is large enough that it will trigger a redrawing of the Antarctic coastline, according to Ted Scambos, senior research scientist with the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Sites back net neutrality Internet giants launch ‘day of action’ against repeal of FCC rules TECHNOLOGY Visitors to dozens of major websites Wednesday saw a special message about the future of the internet — part of the “Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality,” a broad campaign by the companies to stop what they say is a threat to the web as most consumers know it. The biggest names on the web, including Facebook, Google, Twitter and Spotify, participated.
In dispute are a set of federal regulations that ban internet providers from slowing down, blocking or charging websites extra fees while treating other sites differently. The Federal Communications Commission is weighing how to repeal those so-called net neutrality rules in a move that’s expected to benefit internet providers such as Verizon and AT&T. Tech trade groups and activist organizations argue that repealing the FCC’s net neutrality rules would give internet service providers too much power
to determine what consumers can and can’t see online, and for what price. So they’ve partnered not only with the likes of Google and Facebook but also some of the world’s other top online destinations — including Airbnb and Netflix — to oppose the repeal. Among the surprise protesters Wednesday was 4chan, the message-board site known for producing an avalanche of proDonald Trump memes during the 2016 presidential campaign. It’s Trump’s own telecom regulators who are spearheading the current repeal effort. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

FDA advisers OK cancer treatment
Scalise moved out of ICU, still in serious condition
Endorsement could pave way for first gene therapy by September SCIENCE Food and Drug Administration advisers on Wednesday enthusiastically endorsed a first-of-itskind cancer treatment that uses patients’ revved-up immune cells to fight the disease, concluding that the therapy’s benefits for desperately ill children far outweigh its potentially dangerous side effects. The unanimous recommendation from the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee means the treatment could be approved by the FDA by the end of September, forging a new path in the immunotherapy frontier. Novartis, the drugmaker behind the CAR T-cell therapy, is seeking approval to use it for children and young adults whose leukemia doesn’t respond to traditional treatments — a group that numbers 600 or so patients a year in this country. But the approach also is being tested for a range of diseases ranging from nonHodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma to solid tumors. If cleared by the FDA, it would be the first gene therapy approved in the United States. But unlike traditional gene therapy, the new treatment doesn’t replace disease-causing genes with healthy ones. Instead, it

uses technology to reprogram immune cells called T cells to target and attack malignancies. When a patient is treated under the Novartis process, T cells are extracted from a patient’s blood, frozen and sent to the company’s plant in Morris Plains, N.J. There, the cells are genetically modified to attack the cancer, expanded in number, refrozen and shipped back to the patient for infusion. Once inside the body, the cells multiply and then hunt for the CD19 protein, which appears on a kind of white blood cell that can give rise to diseases, such as leukemia and lymphoma. The turnaround time for manufacturing the therapy, called “veinto-vein” time, will be an estimated 22 days, Novartis officials told the committee Wednesday. LAURIE MCGINLEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Wray vows loyalty to law Nominee to head FBI says he would resign before improperly dropping investigation
Trump Jr. email: A smoking gun or a distraction?
ELLEN NAKASHIMA AND KAROUN DEMIRJIAN
POLITICS When Donald Trump Jr. said, “I love it” at the prospect of scoring nasty information from friendly Russians about Hillary Clinton in June last year, did that constitute a smoking gun? In one America, the answer was a pretty solid yes. Slate, Politico, Vanity Fair and some Democrats straight-out declared the president’s son’s email the “smoking gun” in the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to take down Clinton. David Dewberry, a Rider University professor and author of a book on political scandals, said the early stages of this probe are “following the pattern of every other major scandal. “Waves of publicity about alleged misconduct. Claims that this is nothing. And what tips the argument is when somebody is found blatantly lying, usually to investigators.” But in Trump Country, it was just the same noise that has been cluttering up this presidency since its inception. Many Trump enthusiasts are standing with the president — and placing the blame squarely on the media. Al Baldasaro, a six-term Republican in New Hampshire’s legislature, said that in politics, “people come to us all the time with stuff on our opponents. … I don’t think there’s anything there. It’s a typical witch hunt. Some media are keeping it alive, making money off this.” MARC

NATIONAL SECURITY Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee to head the FBI, told Congress on Wednesday that if the president tried improperly to get him to drop an investigation, he would first try to talk him out of it — and if that failed, resign. He also testified that no one has asked him for any loyalty oath as part of his nomination. “And I sure as heck didn’t offer one,” he said. Wray, a low-key former senior Justice Department official, was nominated after Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey in May amid a bureau investigation into potential collusion between Trump associates and the Kremlin to interfere in last year’s presidential election. In his opening remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Wray promised to be independent and resistant to political pressures, including from the White House. Wray said he would never allow the bureau’s work to be driven “by anything other than the law, the facts and the impartial pursuit of justice.” He said: “My loyalty is to the Constitution and the rule of law.” Wray later added that there was only one way to do the job — “without fear, without favoritism and certainly without regard to any partisan political influence.” The issue takes on even more significance this week in the wake of revelations that Trump’s son, son-in-law and then-campaign manager last year met with a Russian lawyer who Donald Trump Jr. believed might offer damaging information on

Trump’s chief Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. Robert Mueller, who led the bureau before Comey, has been appointed as a special counsel leading the investigation into potential collusion, Russian meddling in the 2016 election and potential obstruction of justice by Trump in relation to the probe. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., asked Wray to commit to alerting the committee if he learned of any “machinations to tamper with” the investigation. He said he would consult with the appropriate officials to ensure he was not jeopardizing the probe. “But I would consider an effort to tamper with Director Mueller’s investigation unacceptable and inappropriate and would need to be dealt with very sternly indeed.” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., sought to pin down his stance on statements made by Trump, such as when the president called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt.” “I do not consider Director
Wray’s background In Christopher Wray, 50, the president nominated an accomplished lawyer with a classic establishment pedigree: Yale Law School, a clerkship for a respected and conservative appeals court judge, both white-shoe corporate law experience and a strong résumé as a former federal prosecutor who rose high within Justice’s ranks. He headed the Justice Department’s criminal division from 2003 to 2005, and from 2001 to 2002 he was the deputy attorney general’s deputy. (TWP)
Mueller to be on a witch hunt,” Wray said. Trump has also cast doubt on the conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the election with the intent to help Trump win. Wray said: “I have no reason to doubt the conclusions of the intelligence community.”

Graham questioned Wray’s position on the wisdom of Donald Trump Jr., Trump’s then-campaign manager Paul Manafort and his son-in-law Jared Kushner meeting with the Russian lawyer in June 2016. Wray was reluctant to answer directly. But when asked if he would advise Graham to take such a meeting, he said: “Senator, I think you’d want to consult with some good legal advisers before you do that. … I think it would be wise to let the FBI know.” After more than two hours of grilling, senators from both parties said they were impressed with his answers. “I’m looking around and feeling that you had a good hearing today,” said Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., who in past confirmation hearings — including that of Attorney General Jeff Sessions — has aggressively questioned nominees. “Best of luck to you.”

Catch them if you can
Nats’ bullpen about to get a makeover MLB When Washington signed Edwin Jackson to a minor league deal in mid-June, the team viewed the addition as a low-risk move for pitching depth. He is a versatile right-hander with the stuff and experience to help as a starter or out of the bullpen. In the month since, Jackson, 33, has tweaked his arm slot to conceal the ball longer in his delivery. He hasn’t allowed a run in 171/3 innings across four starts for Class AAA Syracuse. “We didn’t sign him for no reason,” Nationals manager Dusty Baker said last week. “But we have to see if he’s indeed the Edwin Jackson or see if there’s room. See, we’re going to be real crowded here soon.” The Nationals’ bullpen will look different by the end of the month, when the July 31 trade
deadline rolls around and noncontenders sell off capable pieces to prospective playoff clubs. The Nationals must also consider another deadline: Jackson, who pitched for them in 2012, can opt out of his deal Aug. 1, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The Nationals have until then to call him up or risk losing him. Jackson began the season as a reliever for Baltimore’s Class AAA affiliate, pitching to a 3.12 ERA in 11 relief appearances. He was promoted to the Orioles and allowed seven runs (four earned) in five innings out of the bullpen before he was designated for assignment. Jackson isn’t the only potential in-house option for Washington. Erick Fedde, Wander Suero, Trevor Gott, Austin Adams, Francisco Rodriguez and Ryan Brinley are all alternatives. Fedde, 24, began the season as a starter but was shifted to the bullpen with Class AA Harrisburg in mid-June. He was then

If called up from Class AAA Syracuse, veteran right-hander Edwin Jackson could help the Nationals as a reliever or a starter in the back of the rotation.
WORST BULLPEN ERA
The ERA compiled by Nationals relievers through the first half of the season, which is the worst of baseball’s 30 teams. The Tigers (5.04) and Mets (5.03) precede the Nats. The Indians (2.84), Dodgers (2.99) and Red Sox (3.08) have the best bullpen ERAs. (EXPRESS)
promoted to Class AAA Syracuse. He has a 3.13 ERA in 16 relief appearances and a 4.14 ERA in nine starts across the two levels.
Suero, 25, began the year in big-league spring training and has recorded a 2.01 ERA as a reliever in 33 games for Harrisburg and Syracuse. Gott, 24, appeared in two games last month for Washington before going back to Syracuse, where he has posted a 3.34 ERA in 28 games. Adams, 26, has a 2.50 ERA in 28 relief appearances for Syracuse. Rodriguez, 35, signed a minor league deal with the Nationals at the end of June after the Tigers cut him. He’s allowed one run over four innings with Harrisburg and Class A Potomac. Brinley, 24, has a 3.44 ERA in 29 games for Harrisburg this season.
3 Dodgers (61-29) 7 1/2 -game lead in NL West
They have the largest run differential (plus-163) and the easiest remaining schedule (.474 average win percentage by opponents).
2 Nationals (52-36) 9 1/2 -game lead in NL East
According to Fangraphs, the bullpen has allowed 35 more runs than expected, but the Nats still have a 92.7 percent chance to win the division.
1 Astros (60-29) 16 1/2 -game lead in AL West
According to Fangraphs, Jose Altuve (MLB-high .347 batting average) and Co. have a 99.1 percent chance of winning the division.

Sam Querrey is the first U.S. man to reach a major semifinal since 2009.
Querrey upsets hobbled Murray
WIMBLEDON Limping between points and fading down the stretch, defending champion Andy Murray was stunned by Sam Querrey of the U.S. 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1 in the Wimbledon quarterfinals Wednesday. The No. 1-seeded Murray came into the tournament dealing with a sore left hip, and it clearly impeded him in London. He grimaced as he stumbled or landed awkwardly after shots. Querrey, the 24th seed, took full advantage to reach the first Grand Slam semifinal of his career — and the first for any American man anywhere since Andy Roddick was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2009. “I am still in a little bit of shock myself,” said Querrey, a 29-yearold from Santa Monica, Calif., who upset top-ranked Novak
Djokovic at Wimbledon last year. Murray is normally a terrific returner, but Querrey hit 27 aces. He was impeccable for portions of the match, finishing with 70 winners and only 30 unforced errors. In Friday’s semifinals, Querrey will face 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic of Croatia, who got past 16th-seeded Gilles Muller 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 with the help of 33 aces. There was another quarterfinal surprise later Wednesday, when three-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic stopped playing because of a right arm injury while trailing 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 7-6 (2), 2-0. Seven-time Wimbledon champ Roger Federer beat 2016 runnerup Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) to set up a semifinal against Berdych. HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)

California cult favorite roaster Blue Bottle comes to Georgetown NOW OPEN In case a West Coaster you know hasn’t already mentioned it, Blue Bottle Coffee opened over the weekend in Georgetown. The California-based cafe and roaster, which also has locations in Tokyo and New York, is beloved for its fanatical commitment to quality beans and precise brewing methods. Roasters at Blue Bottle obsessively taste-test coffee daily
to identify “peak flavor”; as a pledge to freshness, all beans are brewed and served within two days of being ground. Though Georgetown has no shortage of cool cafes (Baked & Wired, Grace Street Coffee, Crumbs & Whiskers, for example), the opening of Blue Bottle brings yet another specialty coffee shop to Washington — joining the ranks of Vigilante Coffee, La Colombe, Qualia Coffee and others, and boosting the city’s overall coffee scene. It also follows Blue Bottle’s $20 million investment from venture capitalists in 2012, a move that suggests
the market is thirsty for expertly brewed beans. The new cafe — located at the end of a cobblestone street with an outdoor patio overlooking the C&O Canal — is austerely decorated, wide open and massive enough to do cartwheels in. A huge window floods the space with natural light and makes for primo Instagrams of that cappuccino. A few light bites and such baked goods as English muffins and oat bars complement a concise drink menu, which includes the regular suspects: espresso, macchiato, cafe latte and a $4.75

A popular drink this summer is likely to be the New Orleans-style iced coffee ($4), coldbrewed with roasted chicory, cane sugar and whole milk. It’s sweet without being cloying and so creamy it coats your tongue. This is the company’s first location in D.C., with two more planned to open at Union Market and District W harf in the next year.

BARS Rosslyn isn’t the first place Washingtonians think of when they’re heading for happy hour. But that may change, thanks to the Continental Beer Garden, which opened in a former auto repair shop at the corner of 19th and North Moore streets last week. The location might be familiar to Arlington bar hoppers: Over the past few years, the lot has been used as a pop-up urban park for Oktoberfest, St. Patrick’s Day and other special events. But now the space is becoming a permanent beer garden, with a pair of full-size bocce courts and room for 150 people to sit at shaded tables, surrounded by boxes filled with flowers and trees. A smaller indoor area, decorated with old service station signs, holds 30 people. “Four years ago, there were dumpsters and four or five cars parked out there,” says Curt Large, who operates the beer garden and owns sister bar Continental Pool Lounge down the block. “[The site] was an afterthought.” The Rosslyn Business Improvement District worked with property owner JBG to spruce up the corner, adding a mural by New York City artist Jason Woodside and Adirondack

chairs, and opening the space to the public. Oktoberfest and Cinco de Mayo events drew enough interest that the BID and Continental, which operated the pop-up beer garden, decided to make it permanent. Continental Beer Garden (1901 N. Fort Myer Drive, Arlington) is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 3:30 to 11 p.m. There are 10 beers on draft, mostly Virginia craft brews, and four wines on tap. (Both can be ordered by the pitcher or carafe for groups.) Frozen drinks and sangria are also available at the short indoor bar, which doesn’t have seats. Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m., with $2 off all beer and wine.
Former “Top Chef” finalist Marjorie Meek-Bradley, who owns Washington’s Smoked and Stacked, consulted on the menu, which features bratwurst, a half-smoke and a pulled pork sandwich. Meek-Bradley added options for vegetarians, including salads, veggie skewers and a portobello schnitzel sandwich. Large says he’s open to expanding the hours if there’s more interest. “You go two blocks [from the beer garden], and there are all these apartment buildings,” he says, noting that some nearby residents will likely come by after work to enjoy happy hour closer to home. “I see us eventually opening for brunch,” he says.

Where music is at home CONCERTS When Rockville-bred band O.A.R. played the main stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion for the first time, back in 2002, they opened with “I Feel Home,” a fan favorite that includes the lines, “I feel home/ When I see the faces that remember my own/ I feel home/ When I’m chillin’ outside with the people I know.” Frontman Marc Roberge can still see those faces looking back at him. “I’m looking out and there’s a lot of people out there, but for some reason, out of all these people, I can see my mom and my dad, my science teacher from high school, my neighbor, the guy I worked for at the golf course. It was like looking out and every character from ‘The Simpsons’ is in there,” says Roberge, who often went to the outdoor amphitheater with his bandmates as a teenager to see the Allman Brothers, Phish or whoever else was in town. “It was surreal to the point of comical, like, ‘We’re all in this one place, can you really believe this is happening?’ We’ve had multiple crazy experiences there that continue to make it a place of moments.” For many music fans who grew up (or currently live) in the Greater Baltimore and D.C. area, Merriweather continues to be a place of memorable moments. The 18,000-capacity venue,
nestled in the tree-lined woods of Columbia, Md., and designed by acclaimed architect Frank Gehry, opened 50 years ago Friday with a performance by the National Symphony Orchestra. Over time, Merriweather has hosted huge names (a flyer advertising the 1973 summer lineup was so stacked — Pink Floyd! Stevie Wonder! John Denver! Miles Davis! — that it went viral in February) and has become one of the rare noncorporate, non-cookie-cutter venues renowned nationally by fans and artists alike. This weekend, Merriweather celebrates its 50th birthday with a concert co-headlined by Jackson Browne and Willie Nelson, who both have a history at the venue (see timeline). Rockville native Josh Tillman, aka Father John Misty, will open the show, and Grace Potter will host and sing some songs (Sat., 6 p.m., $55-$125). “It’s a milestone, that place,” says singer-guitarist Jason Isbell, who headlined there last month. “Most big sheds like that aren’t a lot of fun to play, but this one sounds fantastic and it looks really cool. It keeps getting better, too.” Merriweather is in the third year of a five-year, $55 milliondollar renovation project that has added a new box office, new concession stands and bathrooms, a rotating stage, a luxe backstage

The improvements come at a time when Merriweather’s future is bright. After years of concerns that the venue would close or be redesigned, ownership was transferred last November from the Howard Hughes Corp. to the
nonprofit Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission. In exchange, Hughes is developing part of what used to be the venue’s main parking lots into a new business, residential and retail core. (Merriweather attendees must now choose from a series of free parking options online before arriving.) I.M.P., the production company that owns the 9:30 Club and took over booking and operations at
Merriweather in 2004, recently signed a 40-year lease to continue running the venue. Jean Parker has been a witness to most of Merriweather’s changes. She saw her first concert ever — a Beach Boys show — at the venue in 1972, started working there part time in 1977 and took on a full-time administrative job in 1983. By 1987, she’d become general manager, a role she’s held for 30 years.

This season, Merriweather Post Pavilion (10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Md.) grew a second stage. The Chrysalis, located in the woods beyond the lawn, will officially debut as a stand-alone venue this month with a show from jammy bluegrass bands Greensky Bluegrass and Leftover Salmon (July 22, 6 p.m., $40). Part venue, part futuristic-looking neon green sculpture with a canopy built out of 7,700 aluminum tiles, the Chrysalis sits within the site’s 36-acre Symphony Woods park and has a capacity of 7,000 people. (Fans can bring blankets or lawn chairs.) It’s already hosted some festival sets, community events and film screenings (Chrysalis was developed by nonprofit Inner Arbor Trust). But the Greensky Bluegrass show will be the first ticketed concert there, a distinction not lost on the band’s dobro player, Anders Beck. “To play somewhere totally new — not just new to us but totally new, period — is exciting,” Beck says. “Who knows, maybe one day we’ll be looking back and go, ‘Oh, man, that time when Greensky opened the Chrysalis was the coolest,’ because maybe 20 years from now everyone will have played that venue.” R.G.

One of his most memorable performances was at 2015’s “Dear Jerry” concert, the sold-out, multi-artist tribute to the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, where O.A.R. covered “St. Stephen,” one of the Dead’s most technically difficult songs. “They’re gonna hate us if we screw this up,” Roberge recalls thinking. “Merriweather
provided us with a pass — the fact that we’d been through the ranks and paid our dues. When we got up to play that song, at that venue, we felt like we belonged there and the crowd was so cool to us. It felt like a huge accomplishment. And I’ll always have that memory of ‘Dear Jerry.’ If we did ‘Dear Jerry’ at some other place it would have felt like just another show.

R.G.
‘Shaving Cream’ Benny Bell
This vaudevillian novelty song from 1946 was a staple of Hallahan’s childhood visits to his grandmother’s house. “Each verse is a story where the word ‘s---’ should be and instead he uses the words ‘shaving cream,’ ” he says. “My brother and I would just cry with laughter.”
‘Strong’ London Grammar
“I was driving the other night and this song came on the radio and I ended up having to listen to it a couple of times,” he says of the ’80s-indebted 2013 ballad. “It’s the perfect night-driving song.”

Hallahan’s wife recently got him the singers’ 1987 “Trio” album as a gift. This song about divorce, with Ronstadt on lead vocals, “stopped me in my tracks,” he says. “If you listen to the sentiment … it’ll break you down.”

SADIE DINGFELDER | THE STAYCATIONER
Of all the somber, gray, columned buildings in D.C., the National Archives building is somehow the sternest. When neon-clothed tourists queue up around the building, they seem almost like an insult to its dignity — like a necklace of Froot Loops tossed onto the bearskin hat of a Buckingham Palace guard. Despite my misgivings, I joined that queue last week, taking a spot behind a family of four from North Carolina. The dad, in a valiant attempt to entertain or perhaps educate his kids, began reciting the Declaration of Independence from memory. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and, um ...” “That’s all you know,” his wife said. “That’s all anyone knows,” the man retorted. Luckily, for me and the family, the line moved quickly. After just 20 minutes, I was inside the building, emptying my pockets for a security guard. “Where should I go first?” I asked her. “The rotunda,” she said. “Beat the rush.” That sounded like good advice. The building was filling up fast, and there was sure to be a long line in the rotunda to see the Charters of Freedom:
the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Carefully following signs to the rotunda, I promptly got lost. Eventually, I found a promising-looking clump of people and headed over, but it turned out they weren’t looking at the Constitution. They were all gazing in admiration at ... a paperweight? “JFK gave these out after the Cuban missile crisis,” a man read aloud from the display. Etched on the paperweight was a mushroom cloud and the words, “Well, that was a close one!” Just kidding. The actual paperweight was engraved with an October 1962 calendar with the 13 days of the crisis marked in bold. Boring. I finally found my way to the line for the rotunda, and the mood was surprisingly solemn — especially given how many people were standing around in very loud clothing. It was almost as if we were in a place of worship, albeit one with a rather lax dress code. I later discovered that the Archives’ churchlike atmosphere is intentional. The building’s architect, John Russell Pope, designed the rotunda to be a shrine to the country’s foundational documents. In fact, the Constitution originally sat on a raised altar near the center of the room.

The paper chase: I got duped at the National Archives
Before that, it was on display at the Library of Congress in front of a small marble slab where people regularly knelt, prayed and even wept. I asked a guard if he’d ever seen anyone pray or cry, and he looked at me like I was crazy. Chalk it up to more cynical times — or perhaps a National Archives renovation that, in 2003, scrapped the altar and moved the documents into less dramatic display cases. After another 20-minute wait, I was admitted into the rotunda with a big batch of tourists. Most of us headed to the left and joined a line of people who, according to the last person in the queue, were waiting to see the Declaration of Independence. “Why aren’t there any signatures on it?” a man asked once he got to the display case. “I guess they signed it later?” a nearby teen guessed. When it was my turn in front of the case, I found the answer:
National Archives pro tip: There are lots of copies on display! Read the fine print to make sure you’re looking at the real documents. A discreet label to the right of the document said “facsimile.” As I scrutinized the case, I realized that we had in fact all lined up to see just a series of displays about the Revolutionary War, including one that contained a copy of an early print of the Declaration of Independence. Maybe we were being sheeplike, but I think the mistake was one anyone could make. The copies of the documents were realistically yellowed, held in bronze-framed cases and flanked by security guards. That’s not the usual presentation for informational displays with exactly the same
number of historic artifacts as a high school diorama: zero. With some assistance, I found the real Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights at the far side of the semicircular room. It’s probably easier to find the Charters of Freedom when the rotunda is empty — they’re under special yellow glass, for instance, and the walls behind them are embossed with their names. But when the room is crowded, it’s possible to miss them entirely, as I nearly did. And I wasn’t the only one. “Did Tyrion leave already?” I overheard one woman say. “He didn’t even see the Constitution, did he?” Her friend’s reply, I think, captures America’s can-do spirit in just 10 words — a feat of eloquence that even Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, would have to admire. “Well, he can buy one in the gift shop, then.”

This exhibit might go over your head re-creation of an iconic American ceiling floating above you — ceilings from buildings including San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts and D.C.’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is across the street from the Renwick. “Parallax Gap,” however, doesn’t aim for realism. Rather, each ceiling is like a blueprint come to life — albeit one that’s purple and pink as well as blue. Artists David Freeland and Brennan Buck created these illusions by printing stylized blueprints onto plastic fabric, and then using a machine to make precise cuts so viewers can see through one layer to the next one above it. The layers — between two and five for each depicted ceiling — were then fitted into metal frames and hung from the Renwick’s actual ceiling. It’s a little strange for a museum devoted to craft — which
“Parallax Gap” viewers can look up to see puzzle-like renderings of nine notable ceilings.
usually means things made by skilled hands — to showcase a piece that was printed and cut by machines. However, computercontrolled printers and AutoCAD software are tools like any other, Thomas says. “This is craft done at a digital level. It’s not handmade, but it’s still a culture of making that’s distinct from mechanized production,” he says. “Many makers right now are quite happy using digital tools together with the old
analog ones.” In addition to getting people to think about the definition of craft, the goal of the piece (which opened July 1) is to expose architectural illusions that you may see every day, says Helen B. Bechtel, the independent curator who coordinated the exhibit. For instance, many real-life ceilings feature a technique called “trompe l’oeil,” which uses painted-on shadows to create a sense of depth. In “Parallax Gap,”
as you walk around, you can see how clever shading — printed by machine onto flat pieces of plastic fabric — has provided a similar illusion of depth. “The most exciting thing for me isn’t where illusions click into place, but where they break down,” Bechtel says. SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)

EXHIBITS Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to walk around while looking up, but that’s exactly what you’ll need to do to appreciate a new installation at the Renwick Gallery called “Parallax Gap.” Created by architecture firm FreelandBuck, the piece consists of nine different illusions that click into place only if you stand at the exact right point underneath each of them and gaze upward. “We want people to wander through this room and really figure out this puzzle for themselves, while also enjoying this wonderful, confusing, complex shifting of patterns and geometries,” Renwick curator-incharge Abraham Thomas says. “Touch wood, there won’t be collisions.” When you do find one of the nine sweet spots, you’ll see a

Here’s to the ladies who bitch
Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider’s love for Bravo’s “Real
Housewives” franchise runs deep. The two actress-comedians started watching with 2006’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” the series that spawned a universe of addictive reality shows about rich women in cities like New York, Atlanta and Potomac, Md., who get drunk, start fights and judge each other

(constantly). Soon after, Wilson came up with the idea to recruit friends, such as Schneider, to perform scenes from the shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. In 2014, Schneider co-created the Hulu parody series “The Hotwives,” which they both starred in. The next year, they turned their weekly viewing habits into a podcast, “Bitch Sesh,” where they recap and riff on recent episodes of Bravo shows. With the podcast, the pair found a community of fans who did the same thing they did. As Wilson says, the Housewives are “kinda like these weird friends a lot of us have.” This weekend, “Bitch Sesh” is on the road for two live shows at the 9:30 Club. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS) What got you into Bravo and the “Housewives” shows? Danielle Schneider: I’ve always loved soap operas on some level. It was a period in my life when I couldn’t get work and I think it was something that took my mind away from that. “Real Housewives of Orange County” was definitely my first but I don’t think I was there at the first episode. … I had been hearing rumblings and was like, “Oh, this is for me.” Casey Wilson: I actually found the show in this period of time after my mom passed away and I was kind of down and at home a lot and I just turned it on and was fascinated by these screaming,
crazy women. I truly loathe them and love them and just fell in love with the franchise in general and how heightened it is. How has re-creating, parodying and breaking down “Housewives” deepened your appreciation for these shows? Schneider: We have studied drama in college and some of the great works of art — of the Romans and the Greeks — and there are elements of that in here. When you break it down and watch some scenes, you’re like, This is truly drama at its best. Yes, it’s trash, but some of it is real and pure, and so I think
that gave me a new appreciation. Wilson: We still sometimes perform scenes on our podcast and they say there’s no great roles for women, and I disagree — especially women of a certain age. There is something amazing [about] young women watching, with each city, six women in their middle … Schneider: The prime of their midlife! Wilson: Most of them are probably at the end of their lives, they just don’t know it yet. They’re such histrionic characters. It’s just been really fun to play. Especially in the last few months, getting to do the podcast has been a really nice kind of shift of focus going on from everything politically. I’ve found it to be a nice relief. Do you two still watch together? Wilson: We watch every week together with our [podcast] guest and then we tape the show after. Just the “Housewives,” not other Bravo shows? Wilson: Yes, we’re not sociopaths. Schneider: But we’re still texting
‘Vanderpump’ drools While Bravo’s non-“Housewives” shows often come up on “Bitch Sesh,” there is one that Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider can’t get behind: “Vanderpump Rules.” The reality series, a spinoff of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” follows the hard-partying and dramacourting staff at Sur, a restaurant owned by “Housewives” star Lisa Vanderpump. “I like the fantasy of ‘Housewives,’ ” Schneider says. “With ‘Vanderpump,’ I don’t want to see their s---ty apartments. I’ve lived in that s---ty apartment.” R.G.
each other. Casey will be watching “Southern Charm” and will be like, “Oh, my god, Danielle, you’re gonna see something that will make your eyes bleed.” And with other friends, too, they’ll text us while they’re watching and it’s a conversation that seems to be ongoing. Constantly. How do you try to make the live shows special for the audience? Wilson: We try to treat our live
fans, whether they want it or not, to a lot of song-and-dance numbers. Schneider: Something nobody wants but we force them into. Wilson: Then we have a very special guest lined up for D.C. that’s a surprise guest. It’s a powerful guest. Schneider: People will get a real show, they’ll get involved and they’ll get to participate. It’s like our podcast but it’s on adrenaline and it’s live. Will you be recapping that week’s episodes at the shows? Wilson: We’ll recap the “Southern Charm” reunion and the New York “Housewives.” We do that slightly less than we do on the podcast just because a lot of people are coming to see a show to just talk “Housewives” in general and want comedy. We try to make these shows, to be honest, extravaganzas. Schneider: Have you been to a drag show? It’s similar.

Documentarian Errol Morris is gifted when interviewing big names like Robert McNamara in “The Fog of War” and Donald Rumsfeld in “The Unknown Known,” but his best work comes in small — or at least moderate — packages. “The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography” is a lovely, heartfelt look at Dorfman, now 80, who became known for her 1974 book “Elsa’s Housebook: A Woman’s Photojournal,” which combined selfportraits, many of them meditations on feminism, with portraits of others. Using a Polaroid camera that instantly produced 20-by-24-inch prints, she would take only two shots of each subject. They got to choose one, while she kept the other (the “B-side” of the title). It’s a soft, quiet kind of movie about art, inspiration and a woman with a unique vision. Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW; opens Fri., $10-$12.50.

Steve Earle: Folk-country singer Steve Earle’s new album, “So You Wannabe an Outlaw” — dedicated to Waylon Jennings, who died in 2002 — resonates with his maverick spirit and Tele-twang. But more important, Earle and his longtime band, the Dukes, prove that trying to go home again isn’t necessarily a fool’s errand or a retro diversion. See for yourself at his Birchmere show on Tuesday.

Jones loses her furry mittens to some "stealers," she has to investigate. But Junie might have something she forgot to return too!

Risking it all to expose ISIS Aziz, one of the citizen journalists in the film, wanted to put a face to a crisis.
FILM For his 2015 Oscar-nominated documentary “Cartel Land,” director Matthew Heineman put himself in harm’s way to film the drug trade along the U.S.-Mexico border. For his follow-up, “City of Ghosts,” he wasn’t in imminent danger — but his subjects were. “City of Ghosts,” opening locally Friday, is about four men who are among the founders of Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), a network of citizen journalists risking their lives to expose the horrors of life in the Syrian city of Raqqa, basically the capital of ISIS. “With ‘Cartel Land,’ I was in visceral, immediate danger,” Heineman says. “This was a much different experience, going with them from safe house to safe house, where the fear and the danger was omnipresent.” Aziz, one of the film’s four
subjects, says Hei nema n did what he could to address the danger. “When we first Heineman me t M at t , we were concerned about security things. Matt and his team, they were careful about that,” Aziz says. (The film withholds all of the subjects’ last names for obvious reasons.) “From the first day, there was a trust between us. We agreed he would film everything, [but] before the movie [was released] we would check it for any problems. And [there was] nothing.” Because Heineman couldn’t travel to Syria to shoot his own footage, he had to rely on outside sources (mostly RBSS members) to get the images he needed. “It was a new experience not shooting the entire film,” he says.
“It was definitely a fascinating exercise trying to weave in the footage shot in Syria, as well as the footage from ISIS, with what footage we shot.” Yes, he said “footage from ISIS.” Heineman included some of the Islamic State group’s high-quality recruitment videos, which celebrate life under their regime, to show exactly what RBSS is up against. “It’s shocking the production value that the ISIS videos have,” Heineman says. “I was intellectually fascinated about this war of ideas: There’s ISIS on the one hand, with their slick videos, and then there’s RBSS trying to dispel the myth that ISIS was creating this peaceful paradise for Muslims, when it’s the exact opposite.” Aziz and the three other subjects all managed to get out of Syria alive, but that doesn’t
mean they are safe. They all now live in Europe, but they remain in daily danger because of their work. Aziz travels frequently as the spokesperson for RBSS, and he came to D.C. with Heineman in June for a screening of “City of Ghosts” at the AFI Docs film festival. ISIS has put a bounty on all of them and, in some cases, their families — the father of one subject was killed in Syria and his murder broadcast due to his son’s involvement with RBSS. For Aziz and the other subjects, the film is about putting faces to a crisis, even when it would be safer to stay hidden. “Every one of us has his own personal story that should be told,” Aziz says. “That is the reason to show our faces, to reach out to thousands, millions of people around the world.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

‘City of Ghosts’ follows four Syrian activists documenting their homeland’s descent into hell
Netflix’s movie ‘To the Bone’ walks a fine line STREAMING Writers are continuously told to write what they know. In the case of writer/director Marti Noxon, the subject so deadly familiar to her is anorexia. She’s taken her own personal battles with weight loss and turned them into the subject of Netflix’s film “To the Bone,” out Friday. Noxon’s story is told through Ellen (Lily Collins), a 20-year-old artist in a weight loss spiral. Her insistence that she’s “got it handled” and a blatant negative attitude toward those in charge have gotten her bounced from facilities designed to help her. As a last resort, she’s taken in at a group home run by a Dr. William Beckham (Keanu Reeves), whose unorthodox approach puts the emphasis on the patients helping themselves. It’s eventually made clear that Ellen’s self-destructive actions are the result of a tumultuous home life. Reeves really flexes his acting muscles in his role as Dr. Beckham, and Collins turns in the best performance of her career showing Ellen as a woman as determined to push others away as she is to purge herself of food. Credit Noxon for receiving top performances from her actors. Anything less wouldn’t have been acceptable. Being cautious would have crippled the terrifying realities of this illness and going overboard would do a disservice to those fighting real battles with weight. Noxon finds the perfect middle.

@SIMPLYSIMRA, reacting to Disney’s
struggles to cast its live-action version of “Aladdin.” An early casting call specified that the studio was looking for Middle Eastern actors, but the search has since expanded to include actors of Indian descent, even though “Aladdin” is a based on an Arab folk tale. “Aladdin and Jasmine are Arab and should be played by actors and actresses of Arab descent,” @crystima tweeted.
“I hope y’all caught McGregor telling Mayweather ‘Dance for me, boy’ and understand how problematic that is given the racial dynamic.” @JSTRAE, tweeting after Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. had a joint press event Tuesday to promote their UFC fight on Aug. 26. The two traded many insults during the appearance, but some people called foul on McGregor for taking it too far. When Mayweather was shadowboxing, McGregor said, “Dance for me, boy!” Commenters online did not miss the racial overtones in the taunt, particularly since Irishman McGregor has been accused of racism before. But Mayweather’s father, former pro boxer Floyd Mayweather Sr., told TMZ that this was about a boxing match, not about race.

Parker shared her exchange with her boss, in which she let him know she was taking two days off to focus on her mental health. Congleton replied with support, writing: “I just wanted to personally thank you for sending emails like this.” Parker’s tweets sparked a conversation on the internet about mental health at work in the U.S.
@WES_03, Josh Avsec,reacting after Tinder offered him a free date in Maui with a Tinder match. Avsec, a senior at Kent State University in Ohio, matched with fellow Kent State senior Michelle Arendas back in 2014. The two have been sending goofy messages back and forth for three years, but have never met. Avsec tweeted screen shots of their exchanges last week and they went viral. Tinder heard about their “relationship” and offered to help them meet.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) The developments you’re awaiting may be slow in evolving, but you can surely use the time to your advantage. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Travel will make greater demands on you than usual, in part because you were not as prepared as you normally try to be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re ready to put on quite a show, provided you have assembled an audience. You must be prepared for some criticism. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are able to see things from many angles, and this will benefit you tremendously as you enter into necessary arguments. WEDNESDAY’S SOLUTION
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The
farther someone is from home, the less interested you will be in everything around you. You miss his or her influence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) It may be time to come clean about a certain issue you’ve been trying to conceal for too long. Much is already known, in fact. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can keep illness at bay simply by doing what makes sense. There’s no magic involved; you just have to be smart about your health.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can learn much about your own desires by paying attention to what gives a loved one satisfaction.
TODAY: This looks like the hottest day of the week. With partly to mostly sunny skies, temperatures should soar to the mid-90s to near 100. The humidity remains way up there, likely pushing the heat index into the dangerous zone, around 105-110. Some thunderstorms are possible, although the best chance may hold off until late evening.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You may realize that a decision made long ago has affected your romantic episodes ever since. What can you do to break the pattern? ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may tell yourself that something has to stop, but the fact is that forces you cannot escape are controlling you.

Christie Brinkley said she and her then-infant daughter had an elephant encounter 25 years ago during a modeling gig. “I found myself eye to eye with a surprised and angry mother protecting her baby,” she told Social Life magazine. “She raised her trunk and trumpeted a warning!

“I was out of my f---ing mind at the time. I f---ed up, I paid for it, I’m sorry for it, I apologize for it.”
Kim Kardashian West cleared the air after some of her social media followers claimed to see lines of cocaine on a table in the background of one of her Snapchat posts. The star posted a Twitter video Tuesday explaining that the pair of white streaks spotted on a black table at a hotel she was staying at was just part of the table’s marble stone. She initially thought the streaks might be leftover sugar from some candy her kids were eating. Kardashian West admonished those who thought the streaks were drugs, saying, “I have kids. It’s just not my lifestyle. I’ve never been like that.” (AP)
