Can Obama Fix Border Crisis Himself? Washington President Barack Obama can take action to relieve much of the crisis caused by tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing the southern U.S. border without waiting for what is likely to be a lengthy Congressional battle, say two key lawmakers, one Democrat

and the other, Republican. At issue is a provision in a 2008 human trafďŹ cking law that puts the fate of these immigrants in the hands of immigration judges. The Obama administration has expressed some interest in asking Congress to change the law to give the administration more leeway. But Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican, said Sunday that wholesale changes by Congress may not be necessary and that Obama has the authority to return the children to their native countries.

Cost Concerns Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell met with dozens of governors Sunday as the Obama administration tried to get support from states that will host thousands of the Central American children who have crossed the Mexican border on their own since Oct. 1. Governors expressed concerns about the costs, including providing public education, according to those in attendance. (AP)

When openly gay police chief Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who condemned her lifestyle as “questionable,” she feared her two decade career in law enforcement in this town was over. Then, this conservative, small town rebelled. The people of Latta, S.C., who voted for a state amendment banning gay marriage eight years ago, turned against the mayor, stripped him of his powers and the town council rehired Moore. They said her dedication to the town mattered more than her sexual orientation. Residents remembered Moore’s civic spirit from as far back as 1989, when Hurricane Hugo tore through Latta. She was a high school student working part time as a police dispatcher, and helped cut downed tree limbs to clean up the debris.

Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who opposed her sexual orientation, then rehired by the Latta, S.C., town council.

“That’s Crystal. All she does is help people. I don’t get why he fired her. Maybe it’s the ignorant people who talk the loudest. She was the same great Crystal yesterday as she is today, and she’ll be the same person tomorrow,” said lifelong Latta resident Dottie Walters. Mayor Earl Bullard vehemently denied that he fired Moore because she was gay. Still, he offered no apologies for his criticism of

her orientation. “I don’t like the homosexual ways portrayed in front of children,” Bullard said. “You can’t explain to a 5-year-old why another child has two mommies or two daddies.” Last month, 69 percent of 475 voters approved of taking the mayor’s power away. Now essentially a figurehead, it’s not clear what he is going to do next. When Moore returned to work June 30, people honked their car horns and gave her thumbs up as she drove around in her police SUV, according to television reports. “It’s just remarkable,” she said. “I can’t ever thank this place enough.” JEFFREY COLLINS (AP)

Bonded — and Divided — by War Unlikely friendship blooms across Gaza, Israel front lines


Roni Keidar

“Please let me know how you are coping. Hugs.” Maha Mehanna

Netiv Ha’asara, Israel When the rockets start falling and fighter jets buzz the skies, Roni Keidar and Maha Mehanna know they can lean on each other for comfort. They are neighbors and close friends, and they call and text throughout the day and late into the night, checking to be sure the other has survived the latest round of fire between Israel and Hamas. But despite sharing a war zone, they can’t visit. Keidar is Jewish and lives in a small farming community in southern Israel. Mehanna is Palestinian and lives in Gaza City. In one telephone call Saturday, a loud boom could be heard on the line, so close the two were not sure on which side of the border fence the explosive had fallen. “I think it’s your side,” Mehanna told her Israeli friend. “Hitting our side?” Keidar paused a moment. “Yes,” she said. “I think you’re right.” Theirs is a rare, almost impossible friendship. Mehanna and Keidar met three years ago, while Keidar was escorting Palestinians who were in Israel for medical treatment as part of her volunteer work

“I pray and cry most of the time. I don’t see an end to this madness. Please take care and stay safe.”


In Brief

Thousands of Palestinians Flee Thousands of Palestinian residents of the northern Gaza Strip fled their homes Sunday and sought safety in U.N. shelters, heeding warnings from the Israeli military about impending plans to bomb the area in the offensive against Hamas. Despite international calls for a cease-fire, Israel said it was pushing forward with preparations for a possible ground invasion of Gaza. (AP)

Majority of Casualties Have Been Civilians The U.N. Office for Humanitarian Affairs said Sunday that civilians have made up the majority of Palestinian casualties over the past six days — 133 of 168 killed and nearly half of more than 1,100 wounded. Bill van Esveld of the Human Rights Watch said that in some cases, Israel appears to have violated the rules of war under which parties can only target military objects using proportionate force. (AP)

Psychological Warfare Via Text Message The Israelis received what appeared to be official text messages, first warning them to stay close to bomb shelters, indicating an impending rocket attack from Gaza, and then warning of suicide bombers who may have infiltrated the shelters. The messages were fake; their appearance marks a new type of psychological warfare. (TWP)

with Other Voice, an organization that promotes Israeli-Palestinian dialogue. The two hit it off and have maintained their friendship through many rounds of fighting. They’ve bonded over their shared fate: to live with the constant threat of death from above. But Keidar acknowledges that in many ways, she has a good life compared with that of Mehanna and her fellow Gazans, who have no refuge when the missiles start falling. “We don’t have sirens, we don’t have shelters,” said Mehanna, 43. “If you go outside, it’s not safe. Inside, it’s not safe.” The two friends don’t talk about who is to blame for the violence. “We agree there is no military solution to the conflict,” Mehanna said. “Israel has proven they can’t win and the Palestinians have proven they can’t lose.” GRIFF WIT TE AND WILLIAM BOOTH (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Children’s Books to Be Destroyed for Gay Themes Singapore A children’s book inspired by a reallife story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York’s zoo has been deemed inappropriate by state-run Singapore libraries, and the conservative city-state’s information minister said he supports the decision to destroy all copies. The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled from the shelves and said it would “pulp” the copies of “And Tango Makes Three,” as well as two other titles, citing

The Books The books that will be destroyed are “And Tango Makes Three,” about a male-male penguin couple in the Central Park Zoo; “The White Swan Express: A Story About Adoption,” which involves a lesbian couple; and “Who’s In My Family: All About Our Families.” (AP)

complaints that their content goes against Singapore’s family values. “The prevailing norms, which the overwhelming majority of Singaporeans accept, support teaching children about conventional families, but not about alternative, nontraditional families, which is what the books in question are about,” Minister of Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim said. The decision triggered an online petition and an open letter to spare the books. Some are calling for a boycott of the libraries and their events. SATISH CHENEY (AP)

Funding the Silver Line Dulles Toll Road is financing almost half of the costs Tysons Corner, Va. Dulles Toll Road users are shouldering nearly half of the costs of Metro’s soon-to-open Silver Line, a far bigger share than originally predicted. Those drivers also face the biggest exposure for any additional cost overruns or delays on the rail line set to open July 26 — seven months late and $150 million over budget. Tolls are the one share of the Silver Line project’s funding formula that is not capped at a fixed dollar amount or percentage of the final tab. Since construction began, there have been five toll increases that spiked a common round trip from $2.50 to $7 or, viewed as a monthly tab for typical weekday commuters, from $50 to $140. The impact of the line’s rising

A Little Help Earlier this year, Northern Virginia delegates appealed to the U.S. Department of Transportation for low-interest federal loans to help finance the Silver Line. It paid off in April, with nearly $2 billion in loans that the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said will enable it to freeze tolls at $3.50 until 2018. Had they not received the federal loans as well as $300 million in state grants a year ago, toll road users were on track to shoulder 52 percent of the line’s costs. (T WP)

costs has been painfully apparent to drivers who use the road regularly. Yet the significance of rising tolls as a main funding source drew less public attention than heated intrastate political battles and engineering skirmishes over tunnels. In 2004, tolls were expected to cover about 25 percent of the Silver Line’s construction costs, according to an agreement between Virginia

and the contractor, Dulles Transit Partners, led by Bechtel. Total costs were then estimated at $4 billion. But as project costs rose, so did pressure to pull more revenue from the toll road. And it has been only the recent intervention of Washington and Richmond that added nearly $2 billion in funding, mostly in loans, that spared drivers from paying even more. Officials at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is overseeing the Silver Line’s construction, and Bechtel maintain that the cost overruns are not a bad outcome for a project that is among the largest of its kind underway in the United States. It’s not a view that John Fringer shares. The line “squeezes money out of us who are forced to use the toll road to pay for the cursed Metro,” said Fringer, 61, who pays $140 a month on round trips between Reston, Va., and his job in Rockville.

Virginia will increase state funding for the controversial Columbia Pike streetcar project by up to $65 million, the state transportation chief told officials in Arlington and Fairfax counties, allowing the streetcar line to be built at least a year faster and without federal funds. The streetcar line, which is expected to run from the Skyline area of Fairfax to the Pentagon City Metro station, has been projected to cost about $358 million. Arlington dropped that estimate to $333 million Friday because of the faster completion time. County officials hope it will be done by 2020. PATRICIA SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

the 50 states, a dubious thing to do demographically, it would rank as the least neighborly in the nation. The distinct lack of trust seems especially apparent in some rapidly transforming D.C. neighborhoods, where tension can fester between older and newer residents. It arises during small grievances, such as when impromptu soccer games get kicked out by formalized recreation leagues, or large ones — like low-income housing projects being torn down to make way for urban renewal projects.

Man Claims ‘Kingdom’ to Soccer Fever Reaches Its Pitch Make Daughter Princess Jeremiah Heaton was playing with his daughter in their Abingdon, Va., home last winter when she asked whether she could be a real princess. Heaton, a father of three who works in the mining industry, didn’t want to make any false promises to Emily, then 6, who was “big on being a princess.” But he still said yes. Within months, Heaton was journeying through the desolate southern stretches of Egypt and into an unclaimed 800-square-mile patch of arid desert. There, on June 16 — Emily’s seventh birthday — he planted a blue flag on a rocky hill. The area, a sandy expanse sitting along the Sudanese border, morphed from what locals call Bir Tawil into what Heaton calls the “Kingdom of North Sudan.” “I wanted to show my kids I will literally go to the ends of the earth to make their wishes and dreams come true,” Heaton said. The next step in his plan is to establish positive relationships with Sudan and Egypt by way of converting his “kingdom” into an agricultural production center as his children, especially Emily, wanted.

Cover Story The Report’s Findings

Shelter in Shambles District facility for homeless families is beset by decay and dysfunction The D.C. General emergency shelter is supposed to be a cleaner place to stay than an alley, but records show that a young girl woke up with so many insect bites that she had to be taken to the hospital. It is supposed to be safer than a crime-ridden street corner, but a log shows that two teens pinned a 9-year-old to the floor of a bathroom and one urinated in the boy’s mouth. It is supposed to be better than life on the streets, but one resident filed a complaint saying a shelter worker lured her to his apartment with an offer of $20, began unfastening his pants and asked: “What are you going to do for the money?” The city’s largest shelter for families has been in the spotlight since March, when a janitor there took 8-year-old resident Relisha Rudd off shelter grounds. The girl remains missing and is presumed dead. Mayor Vincent Gray has said he has seen no evidence that the city failed in that case, but a Washington Post investigation of the facility in Southeast that is home to nearly 800 residents has found that Rudd’s case was part of a pattern of problems. Housed in a former hospital near the Stadium-Armory Metro station, D.C. General shares a litter-strewn piece of land with a clinic for meth rehabilitation and sexually transmitted diseases, a working jail and the former city morgue. Despite its intended purpose as a sanctuary, the shelter is too often beset by dysfunction, decay and disease. “I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head and my kids get meals every day,” said Nordicka Burton, who moved to the shelter in Octo-

ber with her sons. “But after that, life is really a struggle. There are fights all the time, people are outside doing dope and my boys are scared.” City officials spoke generally about the shelter’s conditions, but they did not respond to four written requests about the specific findings of The Post’s investigation. In the earlier interview, city officials defended the management of the shelter. “Within the confines of

an inadequate building structure, I think our contractor is doing a good job,” said former Department of Human Services director David

Berns, who took the helm in 2011 and retired in June. “Is it perfect? No.” City officials and homeless advocates say D.C. General has never been properly maintained because most saw it as a Band-Aid for the city’s homelessness problem. The city began using the facility as a temporary shelter on cold nights in 2001, when the family shelter, D.C. Village, was overcrowded. Former Mayor Adrian Fenty closed D.C. Village in 2007 amid complaints it was infested with vermin. His administration shifted families to D.C. General until a replacement could be

For Nordicka Burton, a single mom who works as a home health aide, life at the shelter has been a daily test of endurance for her and her two boys, Chris, 13, and Gavin, 6. When she arrived, staff members gave her a space heater because there was no heat in her room. Residents throw trash and dirty diapers from upstairs windows. “You opened your windows, and everything smelled like feces,” Burton said. Rashes formed on Chris’ legs. He was diagnosed with dermatitis, possibly aggravated by contact with fungus or exposure to dust mites, the doctor told her.

found. But the city never found one. The facility is so decrepit that the D.C. Department of Human Services and the contractor running D.C. General concede it cannot be fixed. Yet families continue to be sent to D.C. General as the city has struggled with an unprecedented spike in homelessness caused in large part by a lack of affordable housing. Gray’s plan to find housing for 500 homeless families in 100 days met with limited success. On day 99, the city had placed 198 of them. JUSTIN JOUVENAL, ROBERT SAMUELS AND DENEEN L. BROWN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

To produce the report, The Washington Post interviewed dozens of residents, advocates for the homeless and officials. It gathered hundreds of pages of internal shelter documents through Freedom of Information Act requests and visited D.C. General numerous times. Reporting on the shelter is constrained because access is tightly controlled. Among the investigation’s findings: Staff members charged with caring for and protecting families often preyed upon them. Among 14 complaints of staff misconduct since 2012, residents allege that shelter employees have sexually assaulted them, taken photos of them while they showered, offered them money for sex, involved them in illegal tax scams and even fathered a child with one of them. The incidents echo a 2010 scandal in which female residents alleged that shelter guards had had sex with them or solicited them. The reports prompted then-Mayor Adrian Fenty to fire the contractor running the shelter, Families Forward. Living conditions are often so poor at the 90-year-old facility that residents suffer, are sickened or are put at risk. Nearly 30 people were taken to the hospital or got treatment for bites caused by spiders and other pests; for parasites; for rashes because of dirty showers; or for other problems over the past two years. Residents have gone days, and sometimes weeks, without heat or hot water. The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless produced a report in 2013 that cited frequent heat outages. In one instance, the group said, a mother with an infant waited three weeks in the dead of winter in a room without heat before the clinic intervened on her behalf. The threat of violence, lax safety precautions and a lack of services have created an environment of fear and isolation. Police are called to the shelter frequently on reports of violence, curfew is regularly flouted, and residents say security cameras are broken. The contractor failed to perform reference checks on some employees. Records show police and security have responded to 51 reports of threats and assaults at D.C. General, and 70 cases of abuse, neglect and domestic violence since 2012 — or nearly one incident for every two families. (T WP)

Outstanding Subs At a World Cup where substitutes have made more impact than ever, it was fitting that Mario Goetze came off the bench to win it, and another replacement supplied the perfect cross. Goetze’s extra-time goal to beat Argentina and win the cup was the 32nd scored by a substitute in Brazil. The previous best, 23 at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, is not even close.

Dejected Fans Thousands of Argentine soccer fans gathered on the golden sands of Copacabana beach gasped and then fell into silence when Germany scored a stunning extra-time goal to claim the World Cup title. More than 70,000 Argentina fans packed into Rio de Janeiro in recent days, many traveling upward of 40 hours by car and seemingly all wearing their team’s sky-blue jerseys and chanting day and night.

Leaders Jeered Brazil President Dilma Rousseff and FIFA President Sepp Blatter were jeered and whistled by spectators before they presented the trophy at the World Cup final. Whistling noises were heard from the stands at the Maracana Stadium when they were shown on giant screens. Rousseff and Blatter jointly handed over the trophy to Germany captain Philipp Lahm. (AP)

World Cup With two quick and sublimely deft touches, Mario Goetze ended Germany’s 24-year wait for another World Cup title. Goetze scored the winning goal in extra time to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Argentina on Sunday in a tight and tense World Cup final that came down to a few moments of individual skill. Goetze, who wasn’t born when West Germany beat Argentina in the 1990 f ina l, controlled a cross with his chest in t he 113th minute and in one fluid motion volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Romero and inside the far post from five yards out. It was a goal that gave Germany its fourth World Cup title in its eighth final, and left Argentina star Lionel Messi still walking in the shadow of his compatriot Diego Maradona, who led his country to the 1986 title. Goetze came on as a substitute for Miroslav Klose toward the end of regulation time, and the 22-yearold midfielder’s fresh legs made the difference. Andre Schuerrle broke down the left flank, sending his cross into the area, and the Bayern Munich player did the rest with a clinical finish.

Germany’s Mario Goetze scored the game-winning goal in extra time Sunday.

For Germany, the victory ends a string of near misses since winning its last major title at the 1996 European Championship. The team lost the 2002 World Cup final to Brazil and lost in the semifinals in both 2006 and 2010. “It’s incredible. The team did it beautifully,” Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said. “At some point we’ll stop celebrating but we’ll still wake up with a smile.” It is Germany’s first World Cup title as a unified nation, having won as West Germany in 1954, 1974 and 1990. It was also the third World Cup final between these countries and had been billed as a matchup between the perfect team and the perfect individual, pitting Germany’s machine-like unit against the brilliance of Messi, the four-time world player of the year. But in the biggest game of his career, Messi came up short. He had one good chance to score when he was sent free in the area just after the halftime break, but he sent his shot wide of the far post. “It’s incredible how hard we worked and what a performance we produced,” Germany captain Philipp Lahm said. “It’s an incredible feeling.” MAT TIAS K AREN (AP)

NBA Refusing to stagger after the stunning defection of Trevor Ariza to the Houston Rockets, the Wizards shook off the disappointment and made a shocking deal of their own by landing Paul Pierce. Pierce, a 10-time A ll-Star and likely Hall of Famer, agreed to sign a two-year deal for the full mid-level exception worth $10.8 million, according to a multiple people with knowledge of the situation. He has a player option for the second year. The 36-year-old Pierce spent the first 15 years of his career with the Boston Celtics, winning a championship in 2008, and his former

teammate and current Wizards assistant Sam Cassell played a huge role in recruiting him to Washington. He averaged a career-low 13.5 points last season in Brooklyn, but he gives the Wizards a proven big-game performer and another

veteran mentor to help expedite the progression of franchise building blocks John Wall and Bradley Beal. Pierce announced his arrival on Twitter by stating, “Obama, J Wall here I come.” The Wizards didn’t want to take

any steps back after advancing to the second round for the first time in nine years and quickly found an answer at the small forward position after Ariza spurned them to rejoin the Rockets. Pierce has averaged 21.3 and 5.9 rebounds over a 16-year career. Adding a player with his track record proves how much the organization has grown into a relevant destination. Pierce won’t be looked upon as a primary scorer, but he is certainly capable of creating his own shot and can help 21-year-old Otto Porter Jr. ease into his transition as a rotation player after playing sparingly last season. The Wizards do not expect his presence to stunt Porter’s development in any way. Coach Randy Wittman could also use Pierce as a small ball power forward, a position in which he was able to thrive last season with the Nets. MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

NBA Carmelo Anthony wanted to be a Knick a few years ago, and nothing has changed now. Anthony is staying in New York, announcing his decision Sunday in a posting titled “My City, My Heart” on his website. “This organization has supported me and in return, I want to stay and build here with this city and my team,” Anthony said. He explained that he owed it to himself to explore all his options as a free agent, and thanked the teams he met with for their interest. “Through it all, my heart never wavered,” he wrote. The Knicks can pay the All-Star forward nearly $130 million over five years, though Anthony has said he would be open to taking less than the maximum salary if it would help build a winning team.

After beating Phillies, Washington remains tied atop the NL East

The Nationals are just where they want to be at the All-Star break: atop the NL East. Jayson Werth homered and drove in four runs, and Tanner Roark pitched seven strong innings to lead Washington to a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Ryan Zimmerman also went deep and had two RBIs, Ian Desmond knocked in two runs, and Anthony Rendon had three hits and an RBI for Washington. “If you told us earlier we’d be

Jayson Werth went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBIs on Sunday.

in this spot at this time, everybody would feel good,” Werth said. “We’re healthy now and we kept our heads above water. I like where we are.” The Nationals (51-42) won the last two games of the series and entered the break in a virtual tie with Atlanta

(52-43) for the NL East lead. “We’re right in the thick of the division,” Nationals manager Matt Williams said. “This is a great way to finish up the first half. It’s momentum for us.” On Sunday, the Phillies had no answers for Roark (8-6), who allowed a run and four hits. He struck out six and walked none. “I pitched with confidence,” Roark said. “I didn’t nibble.” Werth followed consecutive singles by Denard Span and Rendon to lead off the game with an oppositefield shot that quickly made it 3-0. Werth remained hot in July, upping his average this month to .375 (15-for-40) with six homers and 19 RBIs. LaRoche went 0-for-5 with a strikeout to drop his average in July to .122 (5-for-41). He was the only Washington starter not to get a hit on Sunday. A ARON BR ACY (AP)


Nats Enter Break in First

Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard has a 2.03 ERA in 43 appearances this season.

Clippard Added To All-Star Team Nats right-hander ranks 16th in ERA among NL relievers Nationals Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard has been added to the National League All-Star roster, Major League Baseball announced Sunday. After Jordan Zimmermann pulled out of the game Saturday because of a bicep strain, the first-place Nationals were without an All-Star representative, which irked several on the team. Clippard’s addition ensures they will have one for Tuesday’s game in Minneapolis. It will be the setup man’s second All-Star selection in his career. Clippard has a 2.03 ERA in 40 innings, has struck out 53 batters along with a 6-2 record. He is

fourth in the majors with 19 holds. Even after allowing a run in Saturday’s game, Clippard’s ERA ranks 16th among NL relievers. Clippard was last an All-Star in 2011. Ca rd i na ls Ma nager Mi ke Matheny, who is managing the NL All-Star team, could have easily picked Drew Storen to represent the Nationals. Storen has a lower ERA (1.20) and WHIP (0.90) than Clippard. Closer Rafael Soriano, who has a stronger case perhaps than both, said Sunday morning he wasn’t asked to attend the All-Star game — and he wouldn’t want to anyway, preferring to go home to the Dominican Republic after being snubbed in the initial selection. Clippard is replacing Braves starter Julio Teheran, who pitched for Atlanta on Sunday and wouldn’t be available to pitch in the All-Star game. ADAM KILGORE AND JAMES WAGNER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Getting Away With Murders?


‘24: Live Another Day’ (FOX)

Joe Berlinger looks behind a mobster’s reign in his doc ‘Whitey’

The miniseries concludes by making a sizable time leap in “Day 9: 10:00 P.M.11:00 A.M.” The clock is running out, as usual, as Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, right) tries to stop terrorists from carrying out actions that would devastate the globe.


‘Time Scanners’ (PBS) The series finale explores an ancient desert city in Jordan, whose buildings and their secrets were unknown to the Western world for more than a thousand years.



‘Taxi Brooklyn’ (NBC) A foster parent’s murder brings out Cat’s maternal side as she takes a shine to one of the slain woman’s young charges. The case also stirs emotions for Leo, whose son is back in France. Cat seeks permission from Captain Baker to start a probe of an underworld family she may have a personal link to.


‘Married’ (FX) Nat Faxon, above left, and Judy Greer, above right, star in this new comedy about facing your midlife crisis with the one you love. Russ and Lina are struggling to keep the magic alive, even as they face carpool lanes, debt and suburban boredom. (TRIBUNE MEDIA /E XPRESS)

As co-director of the “Paradise Lost” trilogy, Joe Berlinger raised so many questions about the seemingly rushed convictions of three Arkansas teens in a bizarre child-murder case that the prisoners were ultimately set free. Berlinger isn’t out to do the same with his latest documentary, “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger.” “I’m not an advocate for James ‘Whitey’ Bulger,” Berlinger makes clear. “He’s a brutal, vicious killer who deserves to be behind bars.” The notorious gangster spent 16 years on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list before his capture (at age 81) in 2011, and no one in the fi lm denies that Bulger is a bad guy. Other truths proved more elusive, however. “Of all the films I’ve ever made, this is a ‘Rashomon’ experience,” Berlinger says, referring to the 1950 Akira Kurosawa film that tells the story of a crime from multiple points of view, many of which contradict one another. “I think [‘Whitey’] is allowing everyone to have their say in the interest of a larger truth rising to the top, and that truth is there are a lot of disturbing questions about this case that deserve to be answered.” With this film (available on iTunes and VOD), Berlinger questions how Bulger managed to rule Boston’s criminal underground as




James “Whitey” Bulger, seen here in police mug shots, insists he’s no rat in “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger.”

“[Bulger’s] trial really should have been an opportunity for all of the truth to come out …” — JOE BERLINGER, DIRECTOR OF THE NEW DOCUMENTARY “WHITEY: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA V. JAMES J. BULGER”

one of the chiefs of the Irish mob for decades when the police and the FBI knew full well what he was up to. “If you believe the official story, he was an FBI informant and the FBI looked the other way and empowered one set of criminals to take down the other set,” Berlinger says (the “other set” was the Mafia).

“Whitey” pokes really big holes in that official story — often with the help of Bulger himself, who repeatedly insists in talks with his lawyer (Berlinger was not allowed to interview Bulger himself) that he was not “a rat.” The catch is that Bulger and the government have such a huge stake in their stories being true that you can’t trust either of them. Bulger wants to keep his status as an honorable gangster who doesn’t tattle; the government wants to use Bulger’s status as an informant as justification for why they never caught him. “[Bulger’s] trial really should have been an opportunity for all of the truth to come out as to how it is he could have been on top of the criminal heap for 25 years and not get so much as a traffic ticket,” Berlinger says. Bulger was not allowed

to present his argument — basically, that while he wasn’t an informant, he had unofficial assurances from multiple branches of law enforcement that he wouldn’t be touched — as his defense. Berlinger, most famous for exposing injustices perpetrated against the wrongly convicted, says the victim of injustice here isn’t Bulger, who is serving two life terms in federal prison. To him, the victims are the families of those Bulger killed, as well as the American public as a whole. “We can’t have our institutions of government picking and choosing who should live and who should die by deciding, ‘OK, we’re going to bring down the Italian Mafia, but we’re going to let the Irish mobsters run free,’ ” he says. “That’s why it matters.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

The merchant loves his beautiful pet parrot and gives him lots of presents. The pet parrot doesn’t love living in his cage. Meanwhile, the cat wanders freely.

With Flying Colors ‘Two Parrots’ is a rich, bright fable of birds and freedom Books The 13th-century Persian poet Rumi tells us if you love something, you should set it free. Unless it has already beguiled you and escaped on its own. In her first U.S. publication, the picture book “Two Parrots,” Arling-

Other spoiler alert: Everything works out in the end. The plot is simple: A friend from India gives a Persian merchant a pet parrot, which the mer-

chant, the bird takes matters into his own talons. Kheiriyeh believes that by keeping a story short, happy and funny, children’s literature can pass messages between generations. Having worked on children’s books in 10 different countries, Kheiriyeh says this approach is universal. All over the world, “people think that by funny stories they can teach children better,” she says. “The messages will remain in their kids’ minds for a longer time.” Kheiriyeh’s artwork — oil paint on paper in the case of “Two Par-

Drummer remade himself to help start a punk movement Obituary Tom Erdelyi hadn’t planned to become Tommy Ramone, but circumstances forced him into a new identity as the drummer and driving force behind one of the most inf luential and unforgettable rock ’n’ roll bands of the 1970s. He was the last surviving member of the Ramones, the seminal New York punk group whose

buzzsaw music and don’t-give-a-rip attitude have been a lasting influence for more than a generation. Erdelyi (or Ramone, as he was better known), 65, died Friday at his Queens home of bile-duct cancer. There had been other strippeddown groups before the Ramones, but the four leather-clad kids from Queens, N.Y., created a distinctive no-frills identity, with their torn jeans and style-free haircuts, as they pounded out songs. It didn’t matter that they could barely play their instruments: The Ramones were a rock ’n’ roll primal scream, an expression of rebel-

lion, loneliness and unfiltered fun. As a show of brotherly solidarity, each band member adopted the last name Ramone. The band had read that Paul McCartney had checked into hotels as Paul Ramone, derived from the name of pop-music producer Phil Ramone. Erdelyi was going to be the band’s manager and was helping audition drummers when the group was forming in 1974. When none of them could follow the Ramones’ style, he picked up the sticks himself and became Tommy Ramone. “I knew from the start what we were doing was innovative and had

She says its texture reminded her of the clay and hay mixture used to build Iranian houses of old. She also found inspiration in traditional Persian art, seen in the floral and geometric patterns and bold color palette incorporated throughout her book. “I love those Persian painting styles from the past and I love blending them with the modern graphic,” she says. Clever details add layers of meaning to the story. Watch for notes written in Farsi (one is a letter from the parrot to a friend), a bright-eyed group of serving women and a cat who meanders throughout the pages. “Using the black cat is kind of my sign in most of my picture books. I just use it as a playful character,” Kheiriyeh says. Kheiriyeh hopes her book will address what she feels is a lack of Iranian culture in American bookstores. “In Iran we have rich literature from the past,” she says. “I always have a great passion to work on Persian literature and adapt it to the modern audience. I wanted to retell those stories with new images. That’s my goal.” ALLIE GHAMAN (E XPRESS)

Almost every Ramones song began with Dee Dee shouting, “1-23-4!” before the band launched into an anthem such as “Suzy Is a Headbanger” or “I Wanna Be Sedated.” (All the band’s songs were credited to “The Ramones,” but Tommy was a major contributor to many.) The Ramones broke up in 1996 and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. They influenced British punk bands who became more famous and a generation of younger groups, such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana and Green Day. MAT T SCHUDEL (THE WASHINGTON POST )
