Real Question: How Driver Found Truck’s ‘Sweet Spot’ The Minnesota Court of Appeals won’t return the driver’s license of a man who lost it for driving too slowly on two-lane roads. The court said nine warnings from law enforcement officials were enough to keep Gary Constans, 59, off the roads. Constans said his Ford Ranger pickup’s “sweet spot” for gas mileage is 48 mph, which has helped him put 278,000 miles on it. (AP) RULES

In Atlantic City, House Is Losing As other states build casinos, N.J. haven sees revenue drop Atlantic City, the erstwhile East Coast gambling mecca, is on an epic losing streak; over the past six years, competitive and economic forces have crushed the local casino economy, driving revenue down more than 40 percent. Once, the city that inspired the board game Monopoly had its own gambling monopoly on this side of the country. Now, it’s more Marvin Gardens than Boardwalk, with states all over lining up to join the game for tax revenue and jobs. In 2006, when gambling in Atlantic City reached record levels, there were 27 commercial and tribal casinos, slots parlors and racetrack casinos in the mid-

lion. The total has gone down every year since; in 2012, the number was barely more than $3 billion — the lowest mark since 1991. “The situation there has become catastrophic,” said Steve Norton, a gambling analyst with a long history in Atlantic City. And the outlook isn’t better this year, even as surveys suggest Atlantic City’s image is improving: In the first half of 2013, gambling revenue was off by nearly 11 percent. Officials tout increased luxury-tax and occupancy-tax revenue, which indicate increased spending on nongambling activities and attractions and lodging in roughly 20,000 rooms. But Atlantic City is a gambling-dependent city with a gambling-based economy that is shrinking rapidly. And more threats loom. In November, New Yorkers will vote on a major casino-expansion measure.

Egyptian Military Continues Crackdown Egypt’s military-backed authorities on Tuesday arrested the supreme leader of the country’s Muslim Brotherhood, dealing a serious blow to the Islamist group at a time when it is struggling to keep up its street protests against the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi in the face of a government crackdown. The Brotherhood’s supreme leader, Mohammed Badie, was arrested in an apartment at the eastern Cairo district of Nasr City, close to the location of the sixweek sit-in protest by supporters of Morsi, who also hails from the Islamist group. The encampment was cleared by security forces last Wednesday, along with another protest site in Giza, in a raid that

Pistorius Camp Talks Civil Deal Johannesburg The families of Oscar Pistorius and his slain girlfriend are in contact, a lawyer for Reeva Steenkamp’s parents said Tuesday. The communication between the two families is over a possible out-of-court civil settlement that would compensate the Steenkamps for the killing of their daughter by the double-amputee Olympian, according to South African reports. A South African newspaper reported that negotiations were initiated by Pistorius’ lawyers, who the paper said were “desperately trying” to negotiate a settlement before Pistorius goes on trial in March on a charge of murder for Steenkamp’s shooting death. If convicted, Pistorius could be liable for a large civil suit by Steenkamp’s family. GER ALD IMR AY (AP)

The Brotherhood’s protests since Morsi’s ouster have somewhat petered out the past two days, with demonstrations in Cairo and elsewhere attracting hundreds, sometimes just dozens. The Muslim Brotherhood said Badie’s detention would not weaken the movement or lead its followers away from their principles. “The people will continue their peaceful struggle until they regain all their rights with his eminence, the guide (leader) in jail,” it said.

The D.C. fire department is investigating an alleged confrontation involving fire chief Kenneth Ellerbe and a firefighter over a picture of a burning ambulance taken before the flames were out and quickly posted to the Internet. Ellerbe said he requested the internal affairs inquiry after hearing allegations that he had forcefully grabbed a smartphone from the firefighter’s hands at the scene, which he denied. In an interview

Tuesday, Ellerbe said he asked for the phone, looked it over and returned it. He called the allegation “another attempt to distract” his efforts to reform the department. Edward Smith, the president of the firefighters union Local 36, declined to name Ellerbe the firefighter and said he is out on sick leave because of stress involving his interaction with Ellerbe. The firefighter has not filed a complaint with the department, the police or an outside agency. Both the chief and Smith said they do not know who took the

photo during the Aug. 13 emergency call in Southeast Washington. The dispute over the picture is the latest in what has become a bitter feud between the firefighters union and department leaders over equipment failures, poor response times, vacancies and stalled labor negotiations. To the union, that fire and another in an ambulance the same day served as an opportune metaphor for what they call an ailing department. To city leaders, two ambulance fires hours apart was suspicious, prompting a deputy mayor to order D.C. police to investigate to make sure “nothing untoward is occurring.”

New Digs for Iconic D.C. School

In Brief

Officials, alumni celebrate Dunbar’s new $122M building

ANNAPOLIS

Md. Lawmaker Charged With Drunken Driving

EMMA BROWN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The old Dunbar High School building, which will soon be demolished, sits in the background of the gleaming new facility.

Q&A

A Personal Investigation Alison Stewart grew up hearing her parents talk about their experiences at Dunbar High School. A journalist who has worked at MTV and PBS, Stewart was intrigued by the stories of a school that offered African-Americans a top-notch education at the height of segregation. In “First Class: The Legacy of Dunbar, America’s First Black Public High School,” she tells the story of the school’s past and looks at what its future may hold.

MICHAEL YOUNG

There are many disputes in the D.C. education policy world. But there also are a few universally held truths, including that Dunbar High School — a dingy and nearly windowless high-rise — wasn’t built to inspire learning. “That building was built like a prison,” Principal Stephen Jackson said. Now the 1970s-era school awaits demolition as Jackson and an array of D.C. officials and alumni celebrate the construction of a new, modern building at First and N streets NW. The light-filled and airy $122 million facility is meant to inspire students in part by connecting them with the past. It appears promising for a school once known as the nation’s preeminent black public high school but one that has struggled in recent decades. Founded in 1870 as the Preparatory High School for Colored Youth, Dunbar was the country’s first public high school for African-Americans. It produced generations of black leaders in fields such as law, education and engineering. But as schools were integrated and middle-class families moved to the suburbs, Dunbar didn’t escape the problems that beset so many inner-city schools. By 2012, fewer than one-third of the students were proficient in reading and math. There is sure to be a discussion about whether Dunbar will be able to fill its new space. The school is built to house 1,100 students — far more than the 500 who attended last year. But for now, the Dunbar community is celebrating. School officials have begun a weeklong dedication with tours and events, which started with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday and will include a speech by comedian Bill Cosby today.

I didn’t realize Mayor Vincent Gray was such a fan of Dunbar.

But the book is much more than a family history.

The 2016 election only seems far away if you’re not planning to run. For those pondering their party’s presidential nomination, there’s so very much to do, starting yesterday. This is a time to get the public to know you on TV and social media, visit big primary states, produce a vanity book, take a stand, develop a world view, and scout for help powering up a campaign team. All while sounding coy about running. And in some cases, not even being sure you will. These cagey noncandidates are showing early hints of a run. (AP)

focused on the home’s overall cost, shrewd buyers and sellers go a step further and look at how much they’ll pay their real estate agent in commissions. Before you sign that agent agreement, learn about the ways their fees work so you can negotiate like a champ and potentially save yourself thousands of dollars.

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

If You’re Selling

Ed Poe and Kate Debelack chose to use Redfin when buying a home, in part because the company offered to put a portion of its commission toward the couple’s closing costs.

It’s Not Hard to Bargain on Fees Shrewd buyers and sellers will negotiate on agent commissions Real Estate Imagine a world where real estate agents give house hunters money to purchase new homes. It may seem like the stuff of unicorns and elves, but it actually happens every day. Kate Debelack, 40, and her

6%

The seller pays commissions to the buyer’s and seller’s agents; in the Washington area, the total is normally about 6 percent of the home’s price. What some don’t know is this number is always negotiable.

husband, Ed Poe, 42, purchased a Petworth rowhouse in July. They used an agent from Redfin (redfin.com), a website that shares up to 50 percent of the buyer’s agent commissions with purchasers. As a result, the couple received a little more than $6,000 worth of credit that went straight to their closing costs. “It’s sort of magic money that we never saw,” Poe says. While most home buyers are

In standard home sales, the seller pays all commissions — which in the Washington area are normally around 6 percent of the home’s price. Half of that 6 percent goes to the buyer’s agent, and the other half goes to the seller’s agent. Six percent might be the norm, but it’s not mandated. “Commissions are always negotiable,” says Danny Samson, owner of Samson Properties (14526 Lee Road, Chantilly, Va., 703-378-8810, samsonproperties.net).

“That one and a half percent is a nice, tidy little sum that you don’t have to pay.” — S TE V E PAY NE , WHOSE AGENT CHARGED 4.5 PERCENT IN COMMISSION RATHER THAN THE USUAL 6 PERCENT

How to Make Sure You’re Getting the Best Mortgage If you are looking to buy or refinance, take 12 minutes to watch the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s video “Shopping for Your Loan” (tinyurl.com/lvxpt3r). In it, you will learn such things as how to read a “good faith estimate,” how to tell if the interest rate is “locked” or “floating,” and how to pay more money up front to lower your monthly mortgage payments or vice versa. The video’s bottom line: Get three good faith estimates and learn how to read them. (T.K.)

In 1997, to stand out from the crowd, Samson began offering his services to home sellers at a 4.5 percent commission (3 percent to the buyer’s agent and 1.5 percent to himself as the seller’s agent). To this day, all agents at Samson Properties are free to negotiate their own commission rates. Lower commissions helped motivate Steve Payne to hire Samson agent Bernie Kagan — who was offering 4.5 percent — to sell his Chantilly Highlands home in May. “With the houses in Northern

digs Virginia as expensive as they are, that one and a half percent is a nice, tidy little sum that you don’t have to pay,” says Payne, 45, an IT professional. There is a reason that Samson decided to lower the seller-side commissions but keep the buyerside commissions at 3 percent: The buyers’ agents might be less motivated to show a home to their clients if the commissions are lower than those at comparable houses.

If You’re Buying And Selling

DIY

Cutting Out the Middle Men If you buy or sell your home on your own using a website such as For Sale By Owner (forsalebyowner.com), you could save thousands of dollars in commissions. “More and more often, you’re seeing buyers and sellers who are dispensing with using agents at all,” says D.C. real estate attorney Peter Antonoplos. If the legal stuff, such as negotiating price and writing and executing contracts, makes you uncomfortable, you could always hire an attorney or bring on a real estate agent — at a reduced commission — to negotiate the sale and handle the contracts. “For 1 percent, we’ll come in, write up the contract and make sure everything’s handled properly,” says Danny Samson, owner of Samson Properties. (E XPRESS)

If You’re Buying As a buyer, you don’t set your agent’s commission — the sellers do, as they’re the ones paying it — but that doesn’t mean you can’t negotiate. Ask your agent to share a percentage of the commission. Debelack and Poe chose to use Redfin in part because sharing

the commission is the company’s standard practice. Each home’s com m ission refund is predetermined based on purchase price — the average refund is about $5,000 — and is posted on the home’s listing page

on Redfin’s website. (The mobile app does not currently show the refund amount.) In Debelack and Poe’s case, that amounted to $6,282, which, as Debelack says, is “nothing to sneeze at.”

Most agents will negotiate their commissions with you if you have the same person both sell your current home and help you buy your new place. (Sorry, first-time buyers — this won’t help you save money.) The agent would likely have you sign both a buyer’s and seller’s agent agreement, which would lock you in with that agent for at least a few months. So be sure you do some research and interview a few agents before making that commitment. In the end, saving money is kind of like that lottery slogan: You can’t win if you don’t play. You’ll never get those reduced commissions if you don’t ask. TR ACY KRULIK (FOR E XPRESS)

Petworth

Wander down just about any block in Petworth on a pleasant night, and you’re bound to encounter young families, longtime elderly residents, 20-something group-house inhabitants and multiple generations of relatives hanging out on roomy front porches. It’s the kind of place where people know their neighbors’ names and look out for one another.

Petworth has held on to a small-scale feel that inspires intense devotion in those who live there. It’s the rare city spot where neighbors know one another’s names.

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

Housing Options The tree-lined streets and stock of 1920s and ’30s rowhouses and single-family homes are a major draw for city dwellers long confined to cramped studios or small condos. Some places have been renovated in recent years with higher-end touches and finishes. Others offer a prime opportunity for the motivated do-ityourselfer to renovate. Many houses come with roomy front porches, backyards and parking — and all at considerably lower prices than in nearby Columbia Heights. For those looking for a smaller space, there are also a number of buildings that have been converted into condos and a handful of larger apartment buildings.

ELVERT BARNES (VIA FLICKR)

A Welcoming Porch Culture

THE WASHINGTON POST

At the southern end of the neighborhood is perhaps one of its strongest draws: the Green and Yellow lines’ Georgia Ave-Petworth station. There are also a number of bus lines that serve the area and at least three Capital Bikeshare stations. 

THE WASHINGTON POST

Characterized as a “delightful suburb” of Washington a century ago, Petworth still feels removed from the hustle and bustle of D.C. It remains a place where people move for a sense of community rather than a flurry of activity. Nonetheless, a recent influx of residents has been accompanied by new restaurants, bars and amenities that have been welcomed by newcomers and old-timers alike. And though the days of truly affordable home prices are gone, it’s still one of the few neighborhoods where attaining a fairly sizable home is possible for more than just the very-well-off. R ACHEL SADON (E XPRES S) Getting Around

The Markets For a long time, the only supermarket was a rundown, suspicious-smelling

Fish in the Hood (3601 Georgia Ave. NW) in Park View is a mainstay for fresh, fried seafood, while the locally owned Domku (821 Upshur St. NW) specializes in Scandinavian and Polish food. For a higher-end option, the Hilton brothers’ Chez Billy (3815 Georgia Ave. NW) serves up French dishes in an elegant dining room. And, of course, every good neighborhood needs a charming local cafe. Qualia, with its in-house roaster and delicious coffee, fits the bill.

Safeway. But in 2009, a Yes! Organic Market (4100 Georgia Ave. NW) opened, and the following year, a farmers market, put together by a nonprofit organization of Petworth residents, cropped up (Upshur and Ninth streets at Georgia Avenue; Fridays, May 3-Oct. 25, 4-8 p.m.). The old Safeway has been torn down, and a new, upgraded version is slated to take its place in 2014.

The Eats There may not be a ton of restaurants and cafes, but Petworth’s offerings are surprisingly diverse. The popular

Going Out Petworth is no bustling entertainment corridor, but there are enough local options that residents don’t have to leave the area to enjoy some evening libations. A short walk will take you to two of the best dive bars in the city — the Red Derby (3718 14th St. NW) and the Looking Glass Lounge (3634 Georgia Ave. NW) — while relative newcomer D.C. Reynolds (3628 Georgia Ave. NW) has an enormous patio and a number of local brews. The nightlife on U Street and the 11th Street strip in Columbia Heights is just a short jaunt away as well.

Unexpected Benefits Sherman and Grant Circles offer some green space, as do both Rock Creek Park to the east and Rock Creek Cemetery to the west. The Petworth Library (4200 Kansas Ave. NW), which was renovated in 2011, is a gem that often hosts community events. The Upshur Recreation Center (4300 Arkansas Ave. NW) has a pool, playground, baseball field and basketball courts, while the Petworth Recreation Center (801 Taylor St. NW) plays host to an annual summer jazz festival. And you can take visitors to see a piece of history without battling tourists on the Mall; President Lincoln’s Cottage (Upshur Street at Rock Creek Church Road) is on the grounds of the nearby Armed Forces Retirement Home.

Ryan Dempster of the Boston Red Sox was suspended for five games and fined by Major League Baseball for intentionally hitting Yankees star Alex Rodriguez with a pitch last weekend. The penalty was announced Tuesday by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr., two days after Dempster hit A-Rod in the second inning at Fenway Park. Garagiola also fined Yankees manager Joe Girardi for arguing with plate umpire Brian O’Nora on Sunday night. Dempster could still play if he appeals the penalty. Boston has off days Thursday and Monday, allowing him to serve the suspension while getting pushed back only a couple days in the Red Sox rotation. Dempster threw one pitch behind A-Rod’s knees and two more inside in the second inning. Then his 3-0 pitch struck Rodriguez’s left elbow pad and ricocheted off his back. RONALD BLUM (AP)

President Barack Obama, center, poses with Bob Griese, left, and Don Shula. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, center, left Monday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a foot injury. An MRI on Tuesday revealed no major ligament damage.

QB Status: It’s Complicated Dolphins, Obama The triumvirate once again requests patience. Coach Mike Shanahan says it’s Dr. James Andrews’ call to declare whether Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is ready to play in the Sept. 9 opener against Philadelphia. But it’s Shanahan who really has the final say. At least this time it’s not Griffin’s call. Owner Dan Snyder met with Andrews and Shanahan on Monday to discuss Griffin’s readiness. The quarterback’s rehab following offseason knee By Rick Snider surgery has moved quickly but has gone perfectly. Barring a setback, Griffin will start against the Eagles. Nobody’s rushing Griffin except the passer himself. That is, until Plan B took a big hit when backup Kirk Cousins sprained his foot against Pittsburgh on Monday, and third-stringer Rex Grossman followed a sharp scoring drive

with an ugly interception. Washington needs Griffin to defend its NFC East crown. Cousins was a viable short-term option who’s now dinged up. It’s a minor sprain, but Cousins may still need a little time to recover. Grossman’s turnovers make him unpredictable, and there’s still a chance he ends up the opening-day starter. With less than three weeks remaining, the Redskins really don’t know if Griffin will be ready. They’re holding firm at maybe, and if Andrews is going to fully clear Griffin, it won’t happen until days before the opener. The Andrews-ShanahanGriffin triangle has been

ongoing since the Seattle playoff loss seven months ago. Nobody wanted to accept blame for Griffin remaining on the field injured, but it was collectively their fault. Now Shanahan is smartly waiving the choice to Andrews, who’s known as the nation’s best knee surgeon. But what if Andrews and Shanahan don’t agree? Would the coach override the doctor? Griffin should be the last one to decide, even though it is his own body.

Stress levels will only rise over the next two weeks. All eyes are on Griffin, but nothing can be decided until days before the Redskins play the Eagles.

It’s a scary time for the Redskins. The team looks mortal with nose tackle Barry Cofield now forced to play injured, and rookie safety Bacarri Rambo and right tackle Tyler Polumbus taking more whiffs Monday night than a perfume-maker. Stress levels will only rise over the next two weeks. All eyes are on Griffin, but nothing will be decided until days before the Redskins play the Eagles in the opener. Griffin will become increasingly frustrated over not playing, Shanahan will get tired of being second-guessed and Andrews won’t offer an opinion until he’s forced to, which is normal for most doctors. Cousins may be ready for Philadelphia. So might Griffin. And Grossman is still there if the Redskins need him. The triumvirate’s decision won’t come quickly enough.

Honor Perfection Undefeated champs visit the White House 40 years after title NFL

Some were gray-headed, others a bit stooped, at least one carried a cane. But despite age, there were still hints of the large frames that once had been covered in football pads during an unforgettable season. Nearly three dozen members of the 1972 Miami Dolphins finally received their White House moment Tuesday, 40 years after they made history by winning 17 games and losing none — an undefeated NFL feat that still stands today. President Barack Obama welcomed the former players to the

East Room, a periodic occurrence at the White House these days for current sports champions. Four decades ago, however, saluting athletes was not an established tradition. And the Watergate scandal was preoccupying President Richard Nixon back then anyway. So the men of that historic Dolphins team had not received their due. “I know that some people may be asking why we are doing this after all these years,” Obama deadpanned. “My answer is simple: I wanted to be the young guy up here for once.” The faces were still recognizable: Hall of Famers Larry Csonka, the team’s star fullback; quarterback Bob Griese; offensive lineman Larry Little; linebacker Nick Buoniconti; and of course their leader, coach Don Shula.

Shrouded in Secrecy

Inside Jokes

Purple Pancakes Prince is having a moment. And I’m having a Prince moment. The Purple One has been the talk of the Internet for the past week, following his sudden, hilarious mastery of Twitter. And, as it happens, “Purple Rain” is the soundtrack of my new apartment thanks to the vinyl copy I recently bought for $1. Prince frenzy reached peak levels over the weekend when he tweeted (from @3rdeyegirl, one of his band’s accounts): By Rudi “Game: Blouses” with Greenberg the cover for his new single, “Breakfast Can Wait,” featuring Dave Chappelle dressed as Prince and holding a plate of pancakes. It’s a nod to the “Chappelle’s Show” sketch in which Charlie Murphy recalls the time he played Prince in basketball, then ate breakfast with him. The reference shows that Prince has a sense of humor about himself, but it’s also shrewd marketing: Chappelle is about to tour after years in hiding, and the cover has renewed interest in Prince’s music, which has been hit-or-miss ever since he changed his name to a symbol in 1992. Prince is no comedian, but his eccentricities are inherently funny. And the more he embraces humor, the more I get sucked into his music. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg

ures for the book, out Sept. 3, which runs 700 pages and was co-authored by Salerno and David Shields. Salerno, 40, is best known as a screenwriter, with credits that include “Savages” and a planned sequel for “Avatar.” Salerno, who declined to be interviewed, reportedly spent some $2 million of his own money for the project and traveled around the country and in Europe to research it.

Movies For much of the nine years that Shane Salerno worked on his J.D. Salinger documentary and book, the project was a mystery worthy of the author himself. Code names. Hidden identities. Surveillance cameras. Until 2010, when “The Catcher In the Rye” novelist died at age 91, only a handful of people were fully aware of what he was up to. Even now, with the release date of the film “Salinger” less than three weeks away, little is known about a production that draws upon more than 100 interviews and a trove of documents and rare photographs and promises many revelations about an author who still fascinates millions. “I have worked more than 200 documentaries in my career, and ‘Salinger’ was the most secretive and the most intense film I have ever worked on,” says Buddy Squires, the film’s cinematographer and co-producer who worked on Ken Burns’ “Jazz” and “The Central Park Five.” “This film was not run like a film production,” said Jeffrey Doe, a co-editor and co-producer. “It was run like a CIA operation. Everything was compartmentalized, top

Just like their subject, the film ‘Salinger’ and its companion book are full of mystery

This rarely seen, undated photo of J.D. Salinger, right, at home in Cornish, N.H., with Emily Maxwell is part of a new documentary and book by filmmaker Shane Salerno.

secret and on a need-to-know basis.” More than three years after Salinger’s death at his New Hampshire home, numerous questions remain unanswered, notably what — or if — he wrote during the selfimposed retirement of his final decades. The new Salinger book and movie are not the first projects ever billed as cracking the Salinger code, and the author’s literary estate did

not participate. But Salerno has won some important converts. The Weinstein Company quickly signed up for the movie, which is in theaters Sept. 6, after seeing it earlier this year, as did PBS, which reportedly paid seven figures and will air the documentary in January as the 200th installment of its “American Masters” series. Simon & Schuster reportedly paid seven fig-

As if internalizing the Salinger legend, he made secrecy not just a priority, but an obsession. Virtually everyone involved had to sign nondisclosure agreements, including Shields, Doe and Squires, and even Squires’ wife. At Technicolor, where post production took place, the film was called “Project Y” and stored in a vault, as if in homage to the vault where Salinger allegedly stored unpublished manuscripts. The Technicolor vault was kept in a room under the watch of seven surveillance cameras. “Crew members knew about their part and not other parts of the film,” Squires says. “Everything was on a very strict need-to-know basis and the only person who knew everything by design was Shane.” HILLEL ITALIE (AP)

Men Behaving Domestically ‘Mr. Mom’ becomes reality TV fodder on A&E’s ‘Modern Dads’ From the network that brought you the reality show “Duck Dynasty” (10 p.m. Wednesdays, A&E) comes “Modern Dads” (10:30 p.m., A&E), which sounds exactly like the failed NBC sitcom “Guys With Kids.” But with “Duck Dynasty” as a lead-in, “Modern Dads” may attract more viewers than “Guys.” That won’t make it any better, though. “Dads” is a reality show that follows three stay-at-home fathers who have assumed child, toddler and infant care as their wives climb the corporate ladder. Another dad is single, and blissfully so, providing his pals with vicarious tales of swinging conquests. This comedy concept is hardly new. These “Dads” were themselves probably in diapers around the time Michael Keaton starred in “Mr. Mom.” The four fathers possess varying

levels of testosterone. Rick’s four kids range from 1 to 10. He puts on a macho facade and acts as if he’s seen it all but is overwhelmed by his toddler twins. First-time father Nathan plays the sensitive male role, exulting in

his baby’s every move as if he were the first father ever. Sean is a “fun” stepdad to his ambitious girlfriend’s two daughters, whose biological dad decamped for Belgium some time back. And Stone is the so-called

“player.” One has to wonder who will watch this show. The notion of sensitive guys who do diapers may be catnip to women raised on “Sleepless in Seattle,” but in most romances of that ilk, the love interest is alone and available until the third act. These guys are devoted to their mates and quite eager to admit that they’ve married up and have no problems relinquishing the alpha-breadwinner role. Are these guys “Mr. Mom,” or just overgrown baby sitters? And as such, are they attractive to female viewers? Will men tune in to this? By contrast, the guys on “Duck Dynasty” often behave like boys who have never grown up. They spend their days bickering, hunting, fishing and hiding from their wives. For all of their sitcom contrivances, the men on “Duck Dynasty” appear genuinely mischievous. For all of the apparent realism of “Modern Dads,” this series comes across as terribly contrived. It doesn’t help that the characters talk as if they’re still auditioning for a reality show.

Every novel Elmore Leonard wrote from the mid-1980s on was a best-seller, and every fan of crime stories knows his name. Leonard, who died Tuesday at age 87 due to complications from a stroke, helped achieve for crime writing what Stephen King did for horror. He made it hip, and he made it respectable. Here are five things you should know about him:

He Wrote on Paper Leona rd w rote longha nd on 63-page unlined yellow pads that were custom-made for him.

He Believed in Word Economy Leonard tried to keep his books under 300 pages.

He Hated Many Of the Films Made From His Work 1969’s “The Big Bounce,” which starred Ryan O’Neal, “was probably the second-worst movie ever made,” Leonard said in 2004.

He Never Got to Finish Novel No. 46 “Raylan,” which was out in 2012, now stands as his final novel. He said last year that he was excited about his next work, which centered on a rogue Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and bull riding. The book also would have featured Raylan Givens, the Stetson-wearing U.S. marshal from “Raylan” and his short story “Fire in the Hole” — the basis for the FX series “Justified.” MIKE HOUSEHOLDER (AP)

He Had 10 Writing Rules Often quoted by aspiring (and existing) authors, Leonard’s list of writing do’s and don’ts, which he wrote for The New York Times, includes “try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.”

popular Clarendon bar Galaxy Hut tweeted Tuesday, “galaxy hut for sale.â€? The tweet linked to a Craigslist post, which speciďŹ cally noted that only a set of the bar’s beer taps was on offer.
