Cardboard Cop Quits Force, Blames Low Pay, No Respect As part of an effort to cut crime at a Boston-area transportation hub, transit police placed a cardboard cutout of burly police officer David Silen in the bicycle cage. Police say the fake cop, along with video cameras and a new lock, has cut bike thefts by 67 percent. It’s also saved an estimated $200,000 a year — the amount it would cost to have an actual officer at the Alewife MBTA subway and bus station in Cambridge. (AP) MONIKERS

Childhood Obesity Rates Fall in 18 States But health officials report that numbers are still too high Atlanta For many years, doctors have been wringing their hands as more and more U.S. children grow fat. Now, that may be changing, with the first evidence of a national decline in childhood obesity. In 18 states, there were at least slight drops in obesity for low-
income preschoolers, health ofﬁcials said Tuesday. After decades on the rise, recent childhood obesity rates have essentially been ﬂat. A few places — Philadelphia, New York City and Mississippi — reported improvements in the past couple of years. But the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows signs of wider-ranging progress. “Now, for the ﬁrst time, we’re seeing a significant decrease in childhood obesity” nationally, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC director.
But rates are still too high, he added. One in 8 preschoolers is obese in the U.S., and it’s even more common in black and Hispanic kids. “It’s not like we’re out of the woods,” he said Tuesday. Obesity continues to be one of the nation’s leading public health problems — health ofﬁcials call it a long-standing epidemic. A third of U.S. children and teens and more than two-thirds of adults are obese or overweight. Tuesday’s study used height and
How the States Rate The biggest declines of childhood obesity rates were in Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey and South Dakota. Each saw their obesity numbers fall at least 1 percentage point. Other states showing improvement: California, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Washington. Ten states were not included. (AP)
Military Combat, Suicide Link Refuted Study: Depression, alcohol connected to 349 Chicago Combat appears to have little or no influence on suicide rates among U.S. troops and veterans, according to a military study that challenges the conventional thinking about war’s effects on the psyche. Depression and other types of mental illness, alcohol problems and being male — strong risk factors for suicide among civilians — were all linked to self-inﬂicted deaths among current and former members of the military. But the researchers found deployment and combat did not raise the risk. “The ﬁndings from this study are not consistent with the assumption that speciﬁc deployment-related characteristics, such as length of deployment, number of deployments or combat experiences, are directly associated” with suicides, the authors wrote. The results echo smaller studies focusing on a speciﬁc branch of the military, but this is the ﬁrst to look at a sampling from the entire mil-

itary population, said lead author Cynthia LeardMann, a researcher with the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego. More than 145,000 people from all branches took part, including active-duty service members, reservists and retirees, and they were followed from 2001 to 2008, a period in which the U.S. waged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The ﬁndings were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. David Rudd, scientiﬁc director for the nonproﬁt National Center for Veterans Studies, said the study provides only a snapshot and doesn’t answer whether combat exposure increases the lifetime risk of suicide.

weight measurements from nearly 12 million low-income children in 40 states. The data was collected from 2008 through 2011. Most of the children ages 2 to 4 were enrolled in the federal Women, Infants and Children program, which provides food vouchers and other services. It’s harder to get national data on preschoolers of more afﬂuent families, so it’s not clear if the trend applies to all young children. But experts note that low-income kids tend to be heavier.

On her Facebook page, she wrote, “He is with angels and he’s in no more pain.” After learning late last month that Logan had two to three weeks to live, the couple nixed an original wedding date of July 2014 so Logan could see them marry and be part of family photos.

Hasan: I Was the Shooter Suspect tells jurors he killed 13 in 2009 Fort Hood massacre Fort Hood, Texas Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan fired the last of 146 bullets in his assault on Fort Hood, then walked outside where he met two civilians who asked about the commotion and the laser-sighted pistol in his hand. Hasan told one person not to worry. He assured the other it was just a training exercise and the gun shot only paint. He let both live. But moments earlier, dozens of uniformed soldiers received no mercy from Hasan, military prosecutors said Tuesday as the Army psychiatrist’s long-delayed trial began. Hasan planned the assault for months, prosecutor Col. Steve Henricks said, describing how Hasan stockpiled bullets, practiced at a shooting range and bought an extender kit for his pistol. Acting as his own attorney, Hasan, who admits to killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in the 2009 attack, matter-of-factly told a jury of 13 ofﬁcers that he

Prosecutors said Tuesday that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan planned the Fort Hood attack.
What’s Next Over the next several weeks, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is expected to question witnesses, many of whom will be among the more than 30 people who were wounded in the Fort Hood attack in 2009, plus dozens of others who were inside the post’s Soldier Readiness Processing Center at the time of the attack.

Most Don’t Want Extra-Long Life Washington Ninety birthdays maybe, but not 120: Americans hope to stretch out life expectancy another decade or so, but they’re ambivalent, even skeptical, about a fountain of youth. A new poll by the Pew Research Center released Tuesday explores attitudes about a scientiﬁc quest: Creating treatments that one day might slow the aging process. Scientists already can extend the life span of certain laboratory animals — mice, worms, ﬂies — with various techniques. They’ve also tried with monkeys, although the evidence in that species is mixed. But there’s no way to know if there ever will be some type of
Methuselah pill for humans. But with the field growing, Pew took the public’s pulse and found that 56 percent of Americans wouldn’t want a treatment that would let them live to 120 — although two-thirds expect most other people would want to try such a step, said the report. What is the ideal life span? To most Americans, it’s between 79 and 100; the median answer was 90 years, Pew reported. In the U.S., a child born today can expect to live 78.7 years. Women’s life expectancy is longer, 81 years, than men’s, 76.2. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. (AP)
ly delivering an opening statement. His only utterance of regret was toward his religion for being among the “imperfect Muslims trying to establish the perfect religion.” “I apologize for any mistakes I made in this endeavor,” said Hasan, an American-born 42-year-old who was paralyzed after being shot by ofﬁcers responding to the attack. If convicted, Hasan faces the death penalty. He wanted to plead guilty to murder and attempted murder, but military rules forbid guilty pleas in death-penalty cases. NOMAAN MERCHANT AND PAUL J.

Americans Ordered to Evacuate Yemen Yemen was thrust back into the forefront of the international ﬁght against terrorism Tuesday when the U.S. and Britain evacuated embassy staff because of a threatened attack, a suspected U.S. drone killed four alleged members of al-Qaeda, and militants shot down a Yemeni army helicopter. As Westerners f lew out of the country, Yemeni authorities launched a wide investigation into the al-Qaeda threat to multiple potential targets in the impoverished Arab nation. Security ofﬁcials said they believed the terror network was seeking retaliation for a U.S.-backed military offensive that has dealt serious setbacks

Python Blamed in Deaths of 2 Boys Toronto A 100-pound python blamed in the strangling deaths of two Canadian boys apparently escaped from its enclosure, slithered through a ventilation system and fell through the ceiling into the room where the young brothers were sleeping, authorities said Tuesday. A snake expert said it was possible that the python was spooked and simply clung to whatever it landed on. Police are treating the deaths in Campbellton, New Brunswick, as a criminal investigation. Autopsies on Noah Barthe, 5, and his brother Connor Barthe, 7, were being performed Tuesday. The brothers had been visiting the apartment of a friend whose father owned an exotic pet store on the ﬂoor below, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Alain Tremblay said at a news conference in Campbellton. Tremblay said the African rock python was being kept inside

the second-ﬂoor apartment. Steve Benteau, a spokesman for the provincial Natural Resources Department, said the province wasn’t aware the python was being kept at the apartment. The department said the snake is generally only permitted in accredited zoos. The pet-store owner, JeanClaude Savoie, told the Global News television station he discovered the “horriﬁc scene” when he went into the room Monday morning. “I can’t believe this is real,” Savoie said. ROB GILLIES (AP)
Mideast diplomat said the closures were triggered by the interception of a secret message about plans for a major terror attack.
Yemen has been the site of numerous anti-U.S. attacks, including the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in Aden harbor, which killed 17 Americans. In 2008, al-Qaeda attacked the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, killing one. Western embassies were locked up in 2010, days after the foiled plot on Christmas Day in which a passenger on a Detroitbound plane tried to detonate explosives. The Obama administration alleged the suspect was trained by the al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen. (AP)
Yemeni investigators looking into the threat said they believe the motive was retaliation for the killing of Saudi-born Saeed al-Shihri, who was critically wounded in a November drone strike and later died of his wounds, al-Qaeda acknowledged. AHMED AL-HAJ (AP)
Egypt Balks at U.S. Mediation Cairo Two U.S. senators urged Egypt’s military-backed government to release detained members of the Muslim Brotherhood before starting negotiations with the group, warning of worsening relations “if Egypt is not moving to democracy.” But Egypt’s interim presidency denounced “foreign pressure” in a sign of its growing impatience with international mediations. Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham spoke after meeting with top leaders in Cairo as part of a ﬂurry of international efforts to resolve a standoff between the government and supporters of the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi.

Is Single-Tracking Gone? No, but Metro has changed its weekend track-work system Washington Metro riders are noticing that the announcements about weekend work contain fewer references to “single-tracking.” But that’s not because of a decline in the number of work zones where trains must share tracks. Two things are happening: First, Metro is trying harder to communicate the information about the disruptions in a way riders can understand. And second,
Meanwhile … Metro is preparing for a big day on Aug. 24, when many thousands of additional Saturday riders will take trains to reach 50th anniversary events for the March on Washington. Weekend maintenance work originally scheduled for the Orange and Red lines has been canceled in anticipation of the crowds. Track work still is scheduled but will affect service at just two stations: Greenbelt on the Green Line and Franconia-Springfield on the Blue Line. (T WP)
the track-work system for weekends has changed. Announcements used to say that there would be single-tracking between Station A and Station B, so anticipate delays of X minutes through the work zone. It was difﬁcult to ﬁgure out how long a trip would take. Now, Metro tends to say more simply that trains all along a line will run every however many minutes. Metrorail increased the space between trains, so, if the plan works, there should no longer be delays where trains line up for their turns on the track. Once you board, you should encounter no delay.
Reader @justbartender writes “I actually jumped off the train to get a shot of this incredible sky. It was worth waiting for.”

Bolling endorses a $250 cap on gifts to elected officials Richmond
Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling has endorsed a new $250 cap on gifts to elected officials, one of a series of detailed proposals Bolling unveiled Tuesday in response to an ongoing controversy over gifts accepted by Virginia’s other two statewide officer holders.

Post’s Future Looking Up? Jeff Bezos’ bold résumé hints at innovations ahead for the newspaper
Local Leaders Mixed on Sale
Can Jeff Bezos save The Washington Post? Experts say the Amazon.com founder and CEO who revolutionized the retail business seems up for the challenge, raising hope that his $250 million purchase of The Post will provide the newspaper industry with a template for making the leap from the printed page to digital devices. Although Bezos is buying The Post with his own money, most experts predict he will tether the newspaper to Amazon.com Inc.’s products. He might also infuse the newspaper with some of the concepts that helped turn the Seattle company from an online bookstore into a multidimensional business. While Bezos made clear in a letter Monday to Post employees that he has no magic formula for turning the paper around, his leadership at Amazon suggests that he might push The Post to try things that other newspapers steeped in tradition have never dared attempt. “Ever since he was a little kid, it got deeply ingrained into Jeff that experimentation is the answer to everything,” said Hal Gregerson, who interviewed Bezos for his 2011 book, “The Innovator’s DNA.” It’s impossible to predict the ideas Bezos might explore, partly because reviving the Post will probably take years to pull off. Experts are ﬂoating a host of ideas. Bezos could, for instance, deploy the technology that Amazon uses to make recommendations to consumers to enable the Post to automatically tailor digital news

Some believe that Jeff Bezos’ purchase of The Washington Post will better position the paper in an increasingly digital age.
packages to each reader’s interests. He might impose more fees to read the Post’s content online while bundling free subscriptions as part of Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet or its “Prime” service. He could even include special offers in the printed edition to deliver merchandise ordered through Amazon.com. Chief among Bezos’ experiments that have paid off is how Amazon has pushed the publishing industry toward a digital business model. Amazon began selling e-books in 2007 and unveiled the Kindle e-reading device that same year. By 2011, Amazon said its books for Kindle readers surpassed its print sales.
The amount shares of The Washington Post Co. rose Tuesday, the first day of trading after the announcement of the sale of The Post and its affiliates. The stock rose from $568.70 to $593 and went as high as $605.18, a nearly fiveyear high for the corporation, which counts the Kaplan testprep company and Cable One TV business as its two biggest profit-drivers. (E XPRESS)
Amazon also has a trove of consumer data, including reading and shopping habits and credit-card information. The company was a pioneer in targeting products to customers based on previous purchases. Clark Fredricksen, vice president at EMarketer, said “the opportunity is deﬁnitely there” for Bezos to leverage Amazon’s data for use in new endeavors, like The Post. How much Bezos will use his Amazon experiences is unclear. “Jeff is not coming in with a plan,” said Post Chairman and CEO Don Graham. “Jeff knows how to get people together to develop successful changes in what we do.”
The sale of The Post to Amazon .com founder Jeff Bezos rocked the world of journalism, but it was also a shock to the community where it’s published. The hometown newspaper of the nation’s capital is no longer locally owned. The Graham family, which has controlled the paper since 1933, has been known for engagement in local affairs, pushing especially for urban renewal and education reform. While some local leaders seem saddened by the sale to an outsider, feelings are mixed with hope that Bezos — who plans to stay in Seattle — will protect the paper’s traditions.
“You don’t have to live here, but you have to have policies that are supportive of the community.” — D.C. COUNCIL MEMBER
MARION BA RRY
— JOHN MORTON OF MORTON RESEARCH INC., WHO DETAILED THE VALUE OF THE WASHINGTON POST BRAND. DESPITE DECLINING
“I was not prepared to see my hometown newspaper … sold to somebody from across the other side of the world,” said Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C.’s longtime congressional representative. D.C. Council member Jack Evans said he understood the financial imperatives behind the sale but called it “terribly sad to see yet another Washington institution pass from local hands to outside hands. “I’ve seen Garfinckel’s go. I’ve seen Woodies go,” he said, referring to bygone downtown retailers. “Riggs Bank, People’s Drug Store — one institution after another.” Council member Marion Barry said he hoped Bezos will make a commitment to the region. “He has to become editorially, and in other ways, part of the community.”

Stewart Has Surgery After Crash NASCAR Tony Stewart underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the broken right tibia and ﬁbula suffered in a sprint car race in Iowa. Stewart, who remained hospitalized, will need a second surgery. There was no timetable for his return. Stewart-Haas racing named Max Papis as the substitute driver in the No. 14 for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Watkins Glen. Papis has made 35 career Sprint Cup starts. Stewart was leading the 30-lap feature in a 360 winged sprint car with ﬁve laps remaining Monday night when a lapped car spun in Turn 4 and collected Stewart and two others. The crash came a day after Stewart ﬁnished ninth in the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway. He’s 11th in the Sprint Cup standings with ﬁve races to go until the Chase for the championship ﬁeld is set.

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos missed stints in April and May, as well as all of June, because of a lingering hamstring injury, but he’s been back and healthy since July 4.
Ramos’ Bat Catching Fire His recent surge has led to him moving up in Nats’ batting order Nationals The Nationals could have used Wilson Ramos’ recent offensive surge much sooner. But Ramos missed stints in April and May, as well as all of June, because of a lingering hamstring injury suffered early in the season. Finally healthy, the catcher has been one of Washington’s most consistent hitters. Before Tuesday’s game against Atlanta, Ramos had a hit in eight of his previous 10 games, batting .324 with three home runs and seven RBIs in that span.
Returning to Top Form
Since coming back from injury on July 4, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has been hitting at a remarkable rate. Here are his numbers during those 21 games played and how they would extrapolate to 162 games. (E XPRESS)

*Through Monday’s game
Against the Mets on July 28, Ramos hit his ﬁrst career grand slam in a 14-1 blowout win. He rocketed a pitch over the left-ﬁeld wall and into the opposing team’s bullpen. The Nationals were able to retrieve the ball so Ramos could keep it as a collectible. “I was waiting for something in the zone,” Ramos said. “I was waiting for a good pitch and got it. I made good contact. I wasn’t look-
ing for a homer, but it happened.” Since returning to the lineup on July 4, Ramos has played in only three games that the Nationals lost by more than two runs. In Monday’s 3-2 loss to Atlanta, Ramos moved up to the cleanup spot because right ﬁelder Jayson Werth (groin injury) didn’t start. Ramos responded with two singles in four at-bats. Manager Davey Johnson has

tinkered with the lineup all season to spark his club. With Ramos’ bat catching ﬁre, his move up in the lineup could become permanent. Before Tuesday’s games, the Nationals were 13½ games out of the NL East. With less than two months remaining in the regular season, Washington’s sights will turn to earning one of the two available wild-card spots. Ramos could be a key for the team’s postseason hopes. “You have to respond with bats,” Ramos said. “Hopefully we will do it for the rest of the season.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)
Jordan Zimmermann’s ERA since the All-Star break. The Nationals right-hander allowed no runs in six innings of work in his most recent start vs. the Brewers, but gave up 12 runs in the previous two starts. Zimmermann will start tonight’s game against the Braves, who have scored the most runs in the majors since the break. (E XPRESS)

Must Mark Magee
Impact of New Faces
Winner Heads West
Big Invite at Stake
Mike Magee has been a difference maker since he was acquired by Chicago from Los Angeles in exchange for the rights to Robbie Rogers at the end of May. He leads MLS with 14 goals; eight of them have come in his 10 league games with the club. He has added three more goals in Chicago’s run to the Open Cup semifinals. Magee scored goals in each of Chicago’s two wins over D.C. United this season.
Luis Silva, Conor Doyle and Jared Jeffrey are part of the up-andcoming generation of United, and all three recent acquisitions made their presence felt over the weekend in United’s best performance of the season. They each scored in a 3-1 win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday, a game that marked United’s first multigoal effort in a league game since a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia on April 21.
Portland and Real Salt Lake won a coin toss held at U.S. Soccer headquarters in Chicago that determined who would host the final, meaning that the winner of the D.C. United-Chicago matchup will be headed west for the U.S. Open Cup championship game. If it is in Portland, it will be held on Sept. 24 at Jeld-Wen Field. If Real Salt Lake wins, the final would not be played until Oct. 1 at Rio Tinto Stadium.
It’s crazy to think that D.C. United, which is in last place in MLS with a 3-15-4 record, could find itself in next year’s CONCACAF Champions League — the premiere intercontinental competition in the region. But the club is just two victories away, with the winner of the U.S. Open Cup automatically entered into the 2014-15 CCL. D.C. United last appeared in the competition in the 2009-10 season.

United’s Chance At a Title D.C. United’s season has been a bit of an unexpected disaster, but there remains a chance for the club to salvage some glory and do something it hasn’t done since 2008: lift a trophy. United will play at the Chicago Fire in the semifinals of the 100th edition of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup tonight. Here are some storylines for United’s showdown with the Fire.
Riley Cooper practiced Tuesday.
Grifﬁn said. Fletcher is now 38, back for another year captaining the Redskins’ defense as an inside linebacker. It wasn’t a sure thing that he would make it back this time. There were times last year when he couldn’t practice because of injuries. Then he kept silent for a while after the end of the season and waited until he had ankle and elbow surgeries to proclaim that, no, he never seriously considered retirement. “It’s just something where you get up every day and go to work and don’t think about it,” Fletcher said. “It’s pretty much how I go about my business.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)
STEVE HELBER (AP)
Look at London Fletcher’s career stats, particularly the column of numbers under the letter “G.” Nothing but 16s for “Games” played. On and on and on. Through four years with the St. Louis Rams. Five with the Buffalo Bills. Six with the Washington Redskins. It’s become routine to say that Fletcher has never missed a game in his NFL career. It’s routine to hear him say that he’s been “blessed” with “good genes.” It’s routine to hear him insist that he thinks about his playing streak only when reporters bring it up. And, every year that passes, the routine becomes more remarkable. Robert Grifﬁn III has missed a game, and he’s played only one season. Keenan Robinson, the 2012 draft pick groomed as a possible successor to Fletcher, has already missed ﬁve games and had two

The Final Word Oprah speaks out about the controversy around her friend Paula Deen 23
I’m going to see “The Book of Mormon” at the Kennedy Center this weekend, but I’m not convinced it will be the funniest musical I see all year. Or even this week. That distinction currently goes to “Breaking Bad: The Middle School Musical,” a YouTube video from the comedy duo Rhett & Link that made the rounds online Monday. In it, a group of kids re-enact the AMC series (returning Sunday at 9 p.m.), By Rudi boiling down Greenberg 5 ½ seasons of tense drama into 5 ½ minutes of kid-friendly humor. Walter White is still a cancerstricken chemistry teacher, but instead of manufacturing blue crystal meth, he makes “blue rock candy.” It’s inherently funny to watch tweens act out the events of such a dark, adult series. But what’s even funnier are the songs, which render memorable “Breaking Bad” quotes in musical form. “I am the one who knocks/ I used to be Kenny G now I’m hard rock,” Walt sings. “So stop asking questions, get back to folding my socks/ because I am the one who knocks.” “We’re so glad, that Walt broke bad,” the chorus sings at the musical’s conclusion. Me too. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg
Film It doesn’t take much to get Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis going on a good comedic riff. Just the mention of some random subject, and the two engage in banter as if they’re reading from a script. One inspiration: Aniston’s longgone series “Friends.” Aniston: “ ‘Friends’ is off the air.” Sudeikis: “I know, but I just did an episode of it.” Aniston: “That’s strange.” Sudeikis: “I play Monica’s uh …” Aniston: “Brother? Other brother?” Sudeikis: “Stepbrother. We kiss. It’s taken a dark turn. Courteney Cox does not play Monica in this one.” Aniston: “No! We’ve all been replaced?” Sudeikis: “It’s like ‘The Carrie Diaries.’ Everyone plays you guys in high school.” Aniston and Sudeikis, who shared the screen in 2011’s “Horrible Bosses,” team up again for “We’re the Millers” (out today), which has Sudeikis’ character assemble a motley crew to play his family in order to complete a drug deal. Like “Horrible Bosses,” the new ﬁlm — in which Aniston plays a stripper posing as a mom — is a dark, subversive comedy. “It’s highbrow, but not too highbrow,” says the 44-year-old actress. “I think it’s fun to have a zany group of people in these situations. And it feels different. That merging of pot smuggling, stripping, dealing, children, fake family, all of that.” Much of the focus of “We’re the

“Horrible Bosses” co-stars Jason Sudeikis, left, and Jennifer Aniston are at it again in “We’re the Millers.”
‘We’re the Millers’ stars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston share several laughs
Quick Take Middle-aged pot dealer David (Jason Sudeikis) makes a run to Mexico to pick up weed while impersonating the clean-cut dad of an allAmerican family. He enlists a stripper (Jennifer Aniston), a runaway (Emma Roberts) and a young neighbor (Will Poulter) to join him. “We’re the Millers” was expertly machined for maximum exploitation, whether it’s Aniston showcasing her killer bod, or Sudeikis’ bland affability. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Millers” has been Aniston’s decision to strip in the movie (though she’s not fully nude), and her impressive, toned ﬁgure. Aniston, a ﬁtness buff, says much of that talk comes across as a backhanded compliment. “When I was little, my mom in her forties looked like a mom in her forties,” she says. “We have sort of erased numbers. I have, at least. “I hate when people tell me ‘For your age, you look great,’ ” she adds. “I can’t stand that.” Sudeikis didn’t have to strip down for the ﬁlm, though a scene with Nick Offerman penetrating his ear with a wet ﬁnger proved to be decidedly uncomfortable. “It’s not enjoyable, per se,” he says. “I don’t mind a Q-tip in there, but Nick is a man’s man. That’s a strong, girthy, calloused ﬁnger. He
was full in there; I couldn’t hear anything but my own heartbeat.” For Sudeikis, the ﬁlm may further solidify his box-ofﬁce appeal outside of “Saturday Night Live.” Sudeikis says it hasn’t sunk in that he’s really gone from the sketch series, but the 37-year-old does admit to feeling something when his portrait was placed on the wall of former cast members. “When my picture is 50 pictures away from Bill Murray and Chevy Chase,” he says. “And maybe 45 pictures away from Eddie Murphy. Ten pictures away from Tina Fey and Will Ferrell. That was more of a shock. I have not gotten used to it, but I look forward to two years from now when I remember I actually did it.” JOHN CARUCCI (AP)

on the beach. Seen as a suicide at ﬁrst, it soon becomes clear that he was murdered. The boy’s murder doesn’t so much rock the town as wipe away the dense underbrush of interconnected secrets held by, well, just about everybody. Hardy may be able to maintain an emotional distance from the tight-knit community, but he’s got problems of his own. And he’s hiding an unnamed medical secret. “Broadchurch” has emerged as the U.K.’s most talked- and tweetedabout drama on social media. And it offers plenty to ponder and discuss.

Daredevils in the U.S. will soon have their chance to mirror the Running of the Bulls, above, when the Great Bull Run starts Aug. 24.
Run for Your Life! Move over, Pamplona: The great bull chase is coming to America Adventures Organizers of a new event planned for several U.S. cities hope to unleash bulls to sprint through fenced-in courses as daredevils try to avoid being trampled. The Great Bull Run is inspired by the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. The series is set to begin Aug. 24 at a drag-racing strip south of Richmond. Events are also planned in Atlanta and Houston, among other cities. Bull runs are common in Spain and can drum up controversy. Injuries and deaths often occur, and some groups decry the treatment of the bulls used in the runs. About 5,000 people have signed up to participate in the Virginia event, and the number grows by about 50 each day, said Rob Dickens, co-founder and chief operating ofﬁcer of the Great Bull Run. The U.S. events will last one day each, unlike the annual weeklong festival in Pamplona.
If You Go … Interested in putting your life on the line? The Great Bull Run is slated for these three cities in 2013. Learn more about the Great Bull Run at thegreatbullrun.com.

Organizers acknowledge that the Great Bull Run is likely to start out on a smaller scale than its Spanish counterpart. But they note that other physically challenging activities such as extreme off-road runs have become increasingly popular in the U.S., and they see bull running as a natural follow-up. “There’s this ﬁtness craze that started with running,” Dickens said. “I think this is just an extension of all that, but making it more interesting to the general public.” Organizers of the U.S. events plan to include several safety features, making them “quite differ-
ent than the running of the bulls in Spain,” Dickens said. Unlike the narrow, cobblestone streets of the Spanish runs, the U.S. events will use fencing that will include coves, or notches, so participants can get out of the way quickly. Dickens said organizers are partnering with ranches that will supply the bulls, and veterinarians will monitor their health. “We’re not using the Spanish ﬁghting bulls that are bred to be very aggressive for the entertaining aspect of bullﬁghting,” Dickens said. Before running, participants will be required to sign waivers. Dickens acknowledges that waivers won’t prevent lawsuits but said “The waivers for the most part ensure that even if you get sued, they’re not going to win.” Organizers hope the bull runs draw participants who have always wanted to participate but couldn’t make the trip to Spain. “You can go running down the street any time you want, but to run with bulls — that’s something that doesn’t come along very often,” Dickens said.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can do something nice for someone else in return for something nice done for you yesterday or the day before. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may have to work more quickly than usual to meet a deadline that, frankly, you may have forgotten was fast approaching! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’ll be waiting on someone else as things come together more slowly than expected. There’s no reason to become nervous — yet. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may be surprised by someone’s unusually frank talk. You can be sure that it is meant to be taken honestly, and with gratitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may have to step in and calm a disagreement that is fast becoming something for everyone to worry about.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You must try to remember that there is a time and a place for a certain kind of talk — and today is certainly not it! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) All anyone around you is asking for is fair treatment. You can do much to ensure that everyone is, indeed, treated fairly. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Repetition allows you to get a somewhat new set of behaviors under your skin. Future success depends on such comfort.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’re likely to stumble into something that affords you more time and freedom to do something you’ve always wanted to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Choose your words carefully; everyone is feeling a little tense, perhaps, and a misunderstanding may lead to something worse.

For me, it all just felt kind of sad.” She said the dust needs to settle before Deen’s indiscretions can lead to a “real conversation” about racism. (E XPRESS)
