Next up will be James W. Sylvester, 59, of Sheboygan.” Here is a smattering of the wide range of people — from the relevant to the random — who have weighed in on the issue this summer alone.

Mike Ditka: ESPN columnist and NFL coach calls the debate “so stupid it’s appalling.” Random fugitive: Bail jumper Jake Close tells a newspaper they should keep the name, and make the mascot a potato. Police find him. Redskins Pride Caucus: A group of Virginia state delegates decide the name debate should be part of their platform. Dan Rather: The veteran news anchor says the name shouldn’t change. “No. Straight answer.”
Environmental activists mulled suing the U.S. Transportation Department, claiming the proposed light-rail Purple Line would affect the Hay’s Spring amphipod. The endangered shrimp-like creature is thought to only be found in Rock Creek Park. They filed suit Tuesday.
CHANGE IT Hillary Rodham Clinton: “It’s insensitive.” Drake: The rapper takes a jab at the name at the ESPY awards.

Eric Holder: The attorney general says the name is offensive and should be changed. Mike Carey: The longtime NFL referee reveals he has avoided officiating Redskins games for eight seasons. Washington Times columnist Michael Taube: Change it to the “Washington Reagans.”

ENROLLING PARTICIPANTS: CALL ABOUT ELIGIBILITY
NIH researchers seek currently depressed persons ages 18-55, or those persons with bipolar disorder who are currently in a depressive phase, to enroll in this research study. This study is evaluating how the medication Scopolamine (FDA approved for motion sickness) versus placebo can help rapidly reduce depressive symptoms and its eﬀects on memory & attention using neuroimaging. The medication is given intravenously over 7-sessions (inpatient or outpatient) and may include brain imaging and attention and memory tasks to help understand the role of some brain chemicals in depression.

From Kathmandu to class at Howard U. College has seen an unexpected uptick in students from Nepal REGION Howard University has long been known for the global feel of its campus in Northwest Washington. Its first Chinese students arrived in 1870, three years after the school’s founding. The historically black university also draws many young scholars from Africa and the Caribbean islands. But a surprising source of Howard students emerged this year: Nepal. A quarter of the incoming freshmen from overseas turn out to be Nepali. Their delegation — 26 as of last count — outnumbers every other international group in the class of 2018. In the previous class, there were 10 Nepalis. Before that the total was in single digits — or none. So why is a landlocked and impoverished Asian country suddenly sending all these students to Howard? The answer lies partly in the experience of a 20-year-old mathematics student named Roshil Paudyal. A fellow Nepali calls

him “one of the pioneers.” Howard popped up during Paudyal’s search as he was scoping out the market through a website called College Confidential. The site is a clearinghouse for information related to admissions. He applied, got in and won a large scholarship. Paudyal’s positive impressions, relayed to friends back home, fed a boomlet of interest in Howard among his peers in Nepal. Paudyal told a friend back home, Prajjwal Dangal, about Howard. “He said it’s good,” said Dangal, 20, a sophomore studying computer science. “That
pretty much convinced me to come here.” Dangal, in turn, told Utsab Khakurel, 20, an incoming freshman. “These guys were here,” Khakurel said. “I knew a lot about Howard. I’ve been talking to them.” The Nepalis say they have immersed themselves in campus life. Some play soccer for fun, some swim. They have formed a student association with a Facebook page. “I like this place,” said Ashim Neupane, 20, a sophomore. “I’ve made so many friends.” NICK ANDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

local Reading scores remain stagnant on Va. tests VIRGINIA Virginia students saw modest gains on state-mandated math tests while scores on reading and writing exams stagnated, according to state results released Tuesday. But nearly half of the state’s districts saw drops in reading scores as many school districts brace for wavering accreditation status this fall. The state’s annual Standards of Learning tests gauge student academic performance compared to their peers across all grade levels in the commonwealth. The scores help education officials track student achievement in Virginia, which was one of just a few states that has not adopted the new national Common Core State Standards.

D.C. fast food manager admits stealing worker’s identity
All Express. All the time.
State education officials warned earlier this month that as many as one-third of Virginia’s 1,800 schools could lose full accreditation this fall due to dropping reading and science scores as state tests increased in difficulty. Fairfax County showed almost no gains in reading scores, while math scores overall mostly improved. In Arlington, students across all grade levels saw improvements on reading and math. Loudoun County saw slight overall improvements in pass rates in both reading and math tests across all grade levels. In Alexandria, reading pass rates showed slight improvement while math scores were inconsistent across all grades. T. REES SHAPIRO

Hogan has more cash than Brown, for now at least
D.C. considers allowing residents to carry guns
The U.S. attorney’s office announced Wednesday that prosecutors have cleared all local and federal police officers who shot at the Navy Yard gunman, including two who inflicted fatal wounds that ended Aaron Alexis’ deadly rampage last September. Authorities had been waiting for the ruling to close the books on open inquiries into the police actions during the 69-minute standoff, during which 12 people were killed. D.C. Officials had little doubt the officers would be cleared, but the magnitude of the killing and the enormity of the crime scene took months to process.
Maryland Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan has $2.4 million in the bank for the November election, giving him what is expected to be a temporary financial advantage over his Democratic opponent, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown. Hogan’s bottom line, announced late Tuesday, was bolstered by a nearly $2.6 million grant that comes with his participation in the state’s public financing system. His campaign will not be allowed to raise additional funds. Brown, meanwhile, reported raising more than $1.5 million since early June and said he has more than $760,000 in the bank. (TWP)
To carry or not to carry? That is no longer the question. One month after a federal judge’s ruling, District officials have conceded that the city’s long-standing ban on carrying guns in public must be scrapped and replaced with a new law that will allow at least some law-abiding city residents to bear arms on city streets. With only a 90-day stay of the ruling in place, the effort to write a new law is on a fast track, but it remains fraught with political, legal and policy complications that are being examined by a panel of city officials. “It’s slowly coming into focus,” D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said Thursday. (TWP)

Coming soon: allergy-proof peanut butter? Scientists have created non-allergenic peanuts, a possible workaround for a potentially lethal allergy that plagues 2.8 million Americans. The advance also proved promising for wheat and other tree nut allergies. When the product might be available was uncertain. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a blog post that researchers at North Carolina A&T’s School of Agriculture removed allergens from peanuts by using enzymes to break down proteins that trigger the allergy. Shelled, skinless peanuts are soaked in a food-grade enzyme that reduces two key allergens by 98 to 100 percent. The process doesn’t affect the peanuts’ shape or shelf-life.

This child, only known as Child H, is just one of an estimated 1,400 children who were sexually exploited in Rotherham, England, between 1997 and 2013, mostly by Pakistani men, according to a new report. Members of Britain’s Pakistani community reacted with outrage Wednesday amid reports that Rotherham officials were reluctant to address the fact that people of Pakistani heritage were involved for fear they would be labeled racists.

A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles Students are heading back to school, and for many children in our communities, Metrorail and Metrobus helps get them there.
2 0 1 4
More service. Better reliability. On August 24, Metrobus implemented changes to the 30s Line service along Pennsylvania and Wisconsin Avenues. This is the busiest line in the Metrobus network, and it provides a vital transit link for many who do not have easy access to Metrorail. To provide more reliable and more frequent service, Routes 32 and 36 have been restructured and three new routes have been introduced: Routes 30N, 30S and 33. With these changes, riders on many parts of the 30s Line can now expect buses to arrive every 5-8 minutes during peak periods.
Here at Metro, we strive to provide a safe and secure journey for all of our passengers – students and adults, frequent riders and visitors. And while we know the majority of students behave appropriately while traveling on Metro, it’s important that families, faculty and school administrators – as well as Metro employees – work together to make sure all of our passengers are respected and safe. Metro’s Respect Your Ride youth safety program was created to help students understand how important safe and positive conduct is to everyone traveling in our system. We’re working hard to ensure that kids understand the difference between being enthusiastic and being rowdy, disrespectful or intimidating to other riders.
Service improvements along the Georgia Avenue corridor in Montgomery County also went into effect on August 24th, as well as a new effort to increase capacity along 16th Street and Georgia Avenue by assigning longer buses to those routes. Get more information on Metro’s latest round of Better Bus service changes at wmata.com/betterbus or by calling 202-637-7000.
Be smart with your SmarTrip® card. Don’t get scammed.
Please help children in your life understand that students who do not comply with the law on Metrorail or Metrobus will be issued a written notice of the violation, and parents will be notiﬁed by Metro Transit Police. Subsequent violations after a second notice of violation may result in the student being referred to the appropriate court for judicial process. Metro teamed up this year with WKYS radio – DC’s source for what’s hot in the hip hop community – to participate in major back to school fairs where school supplies, promotional giveaways, and Respect Your Ride brochures were distributed. And this fall, WKYS and Metro will host several pep rallies to encourage peace, academic excellence and Metro safety.
The Metro Transit Police Department is warning customers not to fall victim to discount fare card scams. Never buy a SmarTrip® card from another person or unauthorized website. And never allow another person to add value to your card. Be aware, Metro tracks and deactivates SmarTrip® cards that are purchased fraudulently and sold to the public for less than the fare value on the cards.
The goal of the youth safety campaign is to minimize disruptions and improve safety for all riders by educating and engaging young riders. I encourage students to be a leader among their peers and act respectfully when traveling on Metrorail and Metrobus.

shooting by a child using an Uzi. A boy died after shooting himself in the head at a gun expo in Massachusetts, in 2008. Christopher Bizilj, 8, was firing at pumpkins when the Uzi kicked back. The instructor’s death generated angry social-media comments about why a child was allowed to use an automatic weapon. Many readers expressed sympathy for the girl while questioning whether the adults at the gun range were to blame. Ronald Scott, a Phoenix-based firearms safety expert, said most shooting ranges have an age limit and strict safety rules when teaching children to shoot. “You can’t give a 9-year-old an Uzi and expect her to control it,” Scott said.

Dems use ballot measures to get out the vote Some of the hardest-fought — and most expensive — ballot battles of the 2014 midterms won’t involve candidates at all. They’ll be questions that promise to help political strategists, especially Democrats, drive turnout for other races. Here are a few proxy battles from around the country. REID WILSON AND NIR AJ CHOKSHI ( T WP)
Abortion rights In Colorado, Sen. Mark Udall (D) wants single women to vote against Amendment 67, which would amend the state’s constitution to define a fetus as a person, and hopes they’ll also vote for Udall and other Democrats on the ticket.
Minimum wage In Arkansas and Alaska, Democrats hope ballot measures that would raise the minimum wage will drive turnout among low-income voters, who are more likely to vote for Sens. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., and Mark Begich, D-Alaska.
Marijuana Democrats hope an initiative in Florida to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes gives a boost to former Gov. Charlie Crist (D) in his tight race against incumbent Gov. Rick Scott (R); both sides are pouring millions into the proxy fight.
Airline space invaders It’s not your imagination: Seats on airplanes really are getting smaller and smaller
TRENDS When two United Airlines passengers did battle this week over legroom, they touched a nerve among cramped passengers everywhere. Fliers aren’t imagining it: Airliners across the country have pushed for years for denser, more lucrative cabins — and jet makers are unveiling innovative new ways to cram more passengers into shrinking seats. The average short-haul passenger aboard a U.S. airliner gets 32 inches of “seat pitch,” an industry term for the space between rows, an analysis of data from travel compendium SeatGuru shows. But 11 of the 13 biggest U.S. airliners run flights with even less legroom. JetBlue Airways and Virgin America now provide the roomiest arrangements, with an economy-row average of about 35 inches. But even those jetliners aren’t opposed to shrinking fliers’ space. When JetBlue announced it would double the number of

“Even More Space” seats on one fleet, it stole away the roominess from other coach seats. Cramping matters even further, Spirit and Allegiant Air have removed the reclining features from their seats, locking seat backs eternally upright. “It’s one of the most unmistakable trends over the past number of years: densification,” said Seth Kaplan, an analyst for Airline Weekly, an industry publication. “And it’s accelerated with the fact that flights are much fuller than they used to be.” Airlines have also installed skinnier seat cushions, pushed for “ultra slimline” rows and shoehorned in more seats to profit from more passengers. In 2012, most of Boeing’s most popular aircraft, the 777, were delivered with 10 seats to a row, breaking from a decadeslong tradition of nine-seat rows. Airbus, which originally designed its A320 jet to fly with 150 seats, is now pushing to pack in up to 186 passengers.
Syrian rebels capture Israel-Syria border crossing
Cramped in coach While seat space is shrinking on all airliners, some have roomier cabins than others. Here are some of the best (and worst) at allocating space, according to data from SeatGuru on economy-class seats for flights six hours or less. (TWP) 28 INCHES: The “seat pitch” — or space between rows — on some Spirit flights, which is the least amount of space on any airliner. 39 INCHES: The largest pitch, which can be found on some JetBlue flights. 17 INCHES: The width of the smallest seats, which many airliners feature on some flights. 25 INCHES: The width on some Allegiant Air flights — more than 4 inches wider than any other airliner.
“You don’t get a Mercedes S Class for a Ford Fusion price,” Spirit chief executive Ben Baldanza said last year. “If you want more legroom — go pay for it at
another airline.” Airlines have offered plusher arrangements for a price, but even that doesn’t prevent neighbors from sparring. Indeed, the battle of the “knee defender,” a $21.95 device that clamps onto the tray table preventing the next seat up from leaning back, raged in United Airlines’ “Economy Plus” section, where coach fliers can pay a premium for four extra inches of precious room. Travelers disagree on whether reclining one’s seat is OK. But nearly everyone has found something to complain with regarding the coach-cabin crunch. A TripAdvisor survey in June found fliers were most peeved when planes had limited legroom and uncomfortable seats. So why aren’t airliners giving fliers more space? Simple: Cramming pays. Spirit — the no-frills, high-fee airline — posted half a billion dollars in revenue in the second quarter, 22 percent higher than the same time last year. DREW HARWELL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

How did an American citizen end up dying on the battlefield as an Islamic State militant?
Developments Hostage’s mother makes emotional plea to captors
RAQQA MEDIA CENTER OF THE ISLAMIC STATE GROUP VIA AP
MINNEAPOLIS Douglas McAuthur McCain, an American killed in Syria while fighting alongside the Islamic State, was part of a growing number of foreign fighters recruited to fight alongside terror groups. White House press secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Wednesday that McCain was fighting for the militants in Syria in a conflict that now includes thousands of foreign fighters from around 50 countries. A masked Islamic State militant stands watch over captured Syrian army members, following a battle in Raqqa.
How do the fighters get to Syria? Syria is easy to get to, said Evan Kohlmann, chief information officer at Flashpoint Global Partners. Turkey gets direct flights from the United States and Europe. From there, it’s a short drive or taxi ride to the porous Syrian border, he said. Once in Syria, they may start with minor groups, but quickly seek to join the al-Qaeda-linked
HENNEPIN COUNTY, MINN., SHERIFF’S OFFICE VIA AP
Who are these travelers? FBI Director James Comey said in June that roughly 100 people had left the United States to join the conflict in Syria. His estimate came during a visit to Minnesota, where several young Somali-Americans had lived before traveling to Somalia to help expel Ethiopian troops seen as invaders. But Comey said the new wave of travelers to Syria was not coming from any particular part of the United States. In May, for example, a Florida man named Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha was identified as carrying out a suicide truck bombing against Syrian government troops in the city of Idlib.
al-Nusra Front or Islamic State. What are the American authorities doing to stop them? The U.S. is using “every tool we possess” to stop citizens from going abroad for violent jihad and to track those who return, National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said. The no-fly list is one of those tools, but it’s far from perfect. “If someone is determined to travel overseas, it’s a challenge for law enforcement to prevent
Douglas McAuthur McCain, left, was born in the Chicago area and moved to Minnesota as a boy. Court records show McCain had some minor traffic offenses in Minnesota, including two instances in which he was convicted of giving police a false name or ID. An old friend, Isaac Chase, said McCain did not really know what he wanted to do with his life. He attended two high schools in Minnesota, but school records don’t show he graduated. “I don’t know if he was just lost or what,” Chase said.” (AP)
that travel,” said Minneapolis FBI spokesman Kyle Loven. Minnesota authorities are trying to prevent radicalization by reaching out to local communities, building trust and working to identify young people at risk of recruitment. What motivates the travelers? Those who are lured to the fighting tend to be young men aged 18 to 30 who are disenfranchised from society and withdrawn, Loven

said. They can include people who have been born into the Muslim faith and converts to Islam. “These are individuals that are seeking a sense of belonging. They are seeking a higher purpose,” said Colin Clarke, a political scientist at the RAND Corporation. What makes the Islamic State attractive to them? The IS appeals to jihadists around the globe because it’s seen as a successful movement, and unlike al-Qaeda, it is operating aboveground, said Jeffrey Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University School of Law. Kohlmann said the fighters are sympathetic to the forces opposing the Bashar Assad regime, and have embraced the anti-American message. “They want to become Batman,” he said. “I hate to say it like that, but they have this illusion they’re going to become a superhero — defend the rights of the innocent and oppressed. It sounds really good.” AMY FORLITI (AP)
The mother of Steven J. Sotloff, an American journalist who was captured last year by the Islamic State, has made a video plea to the head of the terrorist organization asking for her son’s release. In a video obtained by The Washington Post, Shirley Sotloff asks Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to “please release my child. And as a mother, I ask your justice to be merciful and not punish my son for matters he has no control over.”
U.S. won’t coordinate airstrikes with Assad The Obama administration has ruled out the possibility of coordinating U.S. airstrikes in Syria with President Bashar Assad’s government, forcing U.S. officials to design a campaign that would evade Syrian air defenses or coordinate it with Assad through a third party. Despite the shared U.S. and Syrian interest in defeating the Islamic State militant group in the region, there will be no cooperation with Assad, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday. “We’re not going to ask for permission from the Syrian regime,” she said.
Journalist thanks those who helped to free him U.S. journalist Peter Theo Curtis spoke publicly for the first time since his release from a Syrian extremist group after 22 months in captivity. Curtis, who was freed Sunday, declined to talk about his ordeal and said he was overwhelmed to learn that so many “brave, determined and big-hearted” people helped secure his release. “I had no idea when I was in prison,” he told reporters in Cambridge, Mass. “I had no idea that so much effort was being expended on my behalf.” (TWP/AP)

FBS playoff sleepers
RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU
Here are three teams ranked outside AP’s top 10 college football preseason poll that have a shot at sneaking into the inaugural fourteam playoff at the end of this season.
THIS PRESEASON, WASHINGTON’S DEFENSE AND SPECIAL TEAMS appear drastically improved from last year. But
the starting offense — the occasional bright spot in that 3-13 season — hasn’t scored a touchdown in three games. Maybe new coach Jay Gruden has been concealing his real offense during the exhibitions, but failures in protection, passing reads and decision-making can’t be pinned on game plans. With the preseason finale against Tampa Bay tonight (7:30 p.m., NBC), here are five things we have learned so far.
JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRES)
Offense is run-first
Gruden’s plan is to have the Redskins run more, despite having one of the NFL’s top receiving corps. The offensive line isn’t made to protect the passer long. Instead, Alfred Morris will be the mainstay because he’s a proven 4-plus-yards–perrush back who can carry the team. Robert Griffin III will run more often than expected, too. Maybe next season the Redskins will pass more, but for now they’re grounded.
Some coordinators aren’t good coaches. It’s a different skill set. But the whispers about Jay Gruden when he was hired were that he excelled at multitasking and leadership. Gruden is clearly the boss on a staff with two former head coaches and a front office known to meddle. Players have responded well to Gruden’s style. The question is whether they’ll continue to play hard if the losses mount.
3 Haslett wasn’t the villain? Coordinator Jim Haslett took the blame for four failed years with a 3-4 defense, but former coach Mike Shanahan’s troubled history with defensive bosses in Denver repeated itself in Washington, too. With Shanahan gone, Haslett’s unit is much more aggressive up front. Look for more blitzing to offset secondary shortcomings, but thirdand-shorts may remain troublesome.
THE WASHINGTON POST/AP PHOTOS
Top-tier quarterbacks can turn mediocre teams into elite ones and the Beavers’ Sean Mannion has thrown for more than 10,000 yards in his career.
No. 20 Kansas State
The unit was so bad last year the Redskins Alumni Association didn’t even honor anyone as its player of the year. Not only is it better, it’s also led by a dynamo in “special forces” coordinator Ben Kotwica. There’s much more passion on coverage teams and Andre Roberts proved to be a legitimate punt returner, averaging 9.5 yards in the preseason. Punter Robert Malone looks more consistent than predecessor Sav Rocca.
Defensive ends Jason Hatcher and Chris Baker will create much more pressure than the Redskins’ line in past years. Hatcher, the free agent who joined Washington from Dallas, underwent knee surgery that limited his preseason. But he was a presence against Baltimore, and he should open lanes for Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. If Baker can do the same, then the defense could be a top 15 unit.
The Jake Waters-Tyler Lockett connection is one of the best quarterback-wide receiver duos in the country. The Wildcats won six of their last seven games in 2013.
1 No. 14 Wisconsin The Badgers’ playoff hopes ride on this weekend’s game against No. 13 LSU. They’re led by Melvin Gordon, who could be the best running back in the country .
Clippers give Rivers extension
Doc Rivers is staying with the Clippers for another five years. In Steve Ballmer’s first big move since taking over as the new owner, he gave Rivers, left, a contract extension through the 2018-19 season. Ballmer said it was one of his top priorities to ensure Rivers remains as the long-term leader. Rivers was a stabilizing force for the franchise during the upheaval created by former owner Donald Sterling’s racist remarks that led to his ouster after 33 years of ownership. (AP)

against No. 5 Ohio State at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. When college football’s initial top 25 rankings were released less than two weeks ago, the Midshipmen received votes in the AP poll, underscoring the program’s foray into the sport’s national landscape with what coach Ken Niumatalolo calls the most talented team he’s been around in 17 years in Annapolis. Niumatalolo’s optimism stems from the many players back from last year, when Navy won nine games, beat Army, claimed the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy
and won a bowl game. No service academy team has been able to check off all of those accomplishments in consecutive years, but this group has an eye toward history. “Talent-wise, I know we’re as skilled as we’ve ever been,” said Niumatalolo, who enters his seventh full season in Annapolis needing seven wins to become the school’s all-time leader. “But that doesn’t mean anything unless you produce on the field. We like our pieces, and hopefully they fit together.” GENE WANG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

NFL Ravens running back Ray Rice is sitting out two games for domestic violence. A positive marijuana test triggered a yearlong ban for Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, costing him the 2014 season. Critics of the NFL’s arbitrary policy toward domestic violence point to the contrast between the punishments and say it’s time for the league to crack down on players who hurt women. Three members of Congress wrote NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell asking him to reconsider Rice’s suspension, the governor
of Maine says he’ll boycott the league, and numerous groups that advocate for women and families condemned the penalty as too lenient. League officials may soon take action on the matter. A person familiar with the NFL’s plans says the league is looking into increasing punishments for players involved in domestic violence. Since January 2000, 77 players have been involved in 85 domestic violence incidents with six being cut by their teams, according to USA Today’s NFL Arrests Database. The NFL suspended six

players for one game each, and Rice now is the second player to be suspended for two games. The NFL has guidelines bargained with the NFL Players Association setting out penalties for using illegal and performanceenhancing drugs. Domestic violence has been left to the discretion of the commissioner. Goodell has defended the Rice suspension, saying the league can’t just “make up the discipline” and needs to be consistent. He also said Rice took responsibility and had not been in trouble before. TERESA M. WALKER (AP)

EVY MAGES (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
With no work or school for most people on Monday, Sunday is the new Saturday. (Remember that bars can stay open until 4 a.m. this Sunday night.) Here are a few ways to spend the last day of the unofficial last weekend of summer. FRITZ HAHN AND RHOME ANDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Say bye to summer at the Capitol Skyline Hotel pool on Sunday.
Feel like cooling off? Brody Jenner — who recently spent his 31st birthday DJing at the Dave & Buster’s in Hollywood — is the special guest host at the final Adult Swim Pool Party of the summer at the Capitol Skyline Hotel (10 I St. SW, 11 a.m., $25$30), along with DJ William Lifestyle. A table requires a $500 minimum for up to 10 people.
You can't have a Labor Day holiday weekend without Daylight, and the soul classics dance party has adapted well to its new Georgetown home at Gypsy Sally's (3401 K St. NW, Sun, 7 p.m., $10-$15, soulstewdc.com). DJ Divine and DJ Source bring it back to the essence of classic '70s and '80s dance music, going deeper than the standard old-school set.
Love karaoke but tired of the usual hip-hop, oldies and pop hits? Indie Rock Karaoke is taking over DC9's main stage (1940 Ninth St. NW, Sun., 8 p.m., free) this week, giving you the chance to sing along to Franz Ferdinand, Gossip, Radiohead and other rocking acts. The best performers — not just the best singers — take home vinyl records.
Kevin Spacey will take time out from filming the third season of the Netflix series “House of Cards” to show off his vocal talents at a one-night-only gala concert Sept. 29 at the Shakespeare Theatre (tickets cost $104). The concert will benefit scholarships and grants for emerging artists. Spacey promises Billy Joel songs, some Simon & Garfunkel, a bit of Sinatra and a surprise guest or two, all backed by a 40-piece orchestra. “You never know what I might come up with,” he says. (AP)

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY FILM RIFFS
SONY PICTURES CLASSICS
Trouble with the cave
A longtime couple (played by Alfred Molina, left, and John Lithgow, right) lose their happy home after finally getting married in “Love Is Strange.”
The power of acceptance A gay couple choose to live apart rather than make waves in director Ira Sachs’ ‘Love Is Strange’ FILM On one hand, “Love Is Strange” is a quiet love story about a longtime couple heading into their golden years. On the other, “It’s like ‘Titanic,’ ” director Ira Sachs says. “I hesitate to say that, but it’s such a clear example of a classic love story where the obstacle is external, and how the couple overcomes this obstacle together,” Sachs says. In the film, out locally Friday, Ben and George (John Lithgow and Alfred Molina) have been together for 40 years but just recently made it official. When
news of their wedding reaches the Catholic school where George teaches — which, up until now, had turned a blind eye to his relationship — George loses his job. Unable to afford their New York City apartment, the newlyweds decide to stay separately with family and friends. Where another movie might turn the situation into a fiery condemnation of discrimination, “Love Is Strange” takes a quietly observational stance, partially, Sachs says, because of Ben and George’s nature. “They’re not fighters. They’re
in dies a r t i es
not taking to the streets. In this situation, they accept what is,” says Sachs, who co-wrote the script. “I think there’s a humility to that that I find very specific to that generation. There are men I know who have lived kind of gentle, unexceptional — except in their own sphere — lives. And yet they are disappearing as Sachs a generation. It’s a film that tries to ask, ‘What do we owe the generation that brought us up?’ ” For a film that starts with a wedding, “Love Is Strange” spends almost no time discussing marriage equality; however, the
nation’s bend toward acceptance of same-sex marriage was integral to how Sachs approached the story. “I’ve never been so optimistic about gay rights in this country,” he says. “The film, its lightness, its humor, its lack of sturm und drang is timely. This movie couldn’t have been made, at least by me, five years ago.” Still, he says, “Love Is Strange” is not a “gay movie.” “People remark that we haven’t seen a lot of gay characters like this before, and I think, ‘Well, none of us can be defined by single adjectives,’ ” he says. “Hopefully it’s a movie about intimacy and relationships and family.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
‘The Trip to Italy’ Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW; opens Fri., $11.50.
This British import features Rob Brydon, far left, and Steve Coogan, left, as lightly fictionalized versions of themselves. Luckily, lightly fictionalized Brydon and Coogan are just as hilarious as the real thing. The nearly plotless film follows them as they travel through Italy, ostensibly to write about their experiences. Really, it’s about two friends making each other laugh. The follow-up to 2010’s “The Trip” (both films are cut-down versions of TV series) has some of the year’s funniest moments, as well as a thread of melancholy woven through. There’s more sadness than in the first one, but also more pasta. So it works out very well. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
In “As Above, So Below,” out Friday, explorers head into the Paris catacombs, where they have a pleasant time and all get nice catacombthemed key chains at the gift shop. Just kidding; they meet many scary things. Venturing into a cave in movies is rarely a good idea. ‘BATMAN BEGINS’: Little Bruce Wayne falls into a cave inhabited by thousands and thousands (AND THOUSANDS) of bats. He overcomes this trauma by spending his adult life dressing up like a bat, probably because his HMO didn’t cover psychiatric care. ‘THE DESCENT’: This 2005 horror film was atypical because it featured a nearly all-female cast. It was typical in that things go really, really wrong. ‘THE CAVE’: This 2005 flick (it was a bad year for spelunkers) upped the scare factor by sticking the cave underwater. Characters could both drown AND get killed by otherworldly creatures. ‘MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL’: The knights
arrive at a cave that’s home to the Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh. I’m including this one mostly to watch the copy editors check the spelling of “Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh.” ‘THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK’:
Han Solo flies the Millennium Falcon into a space slug called an “exogorth” (thanks, Internet!). You’d think differentiating between “safe cavern” and “thing that wants to eat you” would be a lesson a spaceship captain would learn fairly early on.

SINGER (BLEACHERS), GUITARIST (FUN.), BOYFRIEND (LENA DUNHAM)
Depending on your age and musical tastes, you know Jack Antonoff as one-third of fun. or from his days with indie rockers Steel Train or adolescent punk band Outline. He’s also Lena Dunham’s boyfriend and the co-owner of Lamby, a rescue dog who’s been featured in both the New Yorker and Buzzfeed. Now Antonoff has something else to add to the list: Bleachers, his solo project. “Strange Desire,” Bleachers’ debut album, is full of exhilarating pop infused with ’80s nostalgia. Antonoff and a backing band play two shows at 9:30 Club next week. RACHEL SADON (EXPRESS) How are you enjoying the solo thing? Working on something alone is a very special experience because you’re wrestling with all these ideas. It’s an insane process of going through all this crap in your head and trying to make sense of it.
As a fellow New Jerseyan, who hated growing up there, it has been interesting to read about your appreciation for the state. Well, my appreciation comes from hating it, too. What I think is so beautiful about New Jersey is that it’s this place where everyone I knew growing up had this intense desire to get out. That’s a very special energy. People who grew up in New York City have no sense of this underdog feeling of “We have to get the f--- out of here.” As I got older, I realized that it was a hell of a lot better than growing up somewhere that you think is the coolest place in the world. I’ve always had this feeling, and it comes from growing up in New Jersey, that there’s so much I gotta do and there’s so much I

You’ve called Bleachers a darker and more brooding project, compared to fun. Sonically, it goes into dark places and lyrically, it’s looking back on things that I’ve experienced: loss, anxiety, depression — and constantly looking at them as you change and grow. That’s the theme of the whole album. There is a big underlying theme of hope, but I feel like it’s a bit of a s--- storm before you get there.

gotta see and there’s so much I gotta prove. You’ve really thought about this. I lived at home until I was 28. I had a lot of time to intellectualize this. Isn’t living with your parents at odds with wanting to get out? A little bit. But I didn’t feel like I needed to get away from my family or anything like that. I felt very disconnected from a lot of things about my generation in general. Everyone was so uptight about going to college and moving out and getting their life going. It felt premature to me. Where were you sitting in the bleachers in high school? Underneath with the cool kids? No, I wish. I was in the middle, back. I was so mediocre — I wasn’t cool enough for it to be an important experience.
How are things now that you’ve moved in with Lena? It’s nice. I never really moved out, so the experience I’m having now is a monumentally big one in someone’s life. It’s funny that it’s happening at 30. I did things like drive a van around the country for 10 years and learned how to live on the road but I never learned how to put food in the fridge. It’s interesting. If you don’t put the food in the fridge, there’s no food to eat because your mother isn’t there. Any idea why your dog has become so famous? He’s a very special animal and I think that same connection that I’ve built with my dog a lot of other people have, too. He has these weird human eyes.

D.C.’s National Book Festival finds a new home indoors YES, IT’S TRUE: This year, for the first time, the Library of
Congress National Book Festival will be held indoors — in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The Park Service decided that the festival, which last year drew more than 200,000 people, threatened the Mall’s newly installed watering system. Festival organizers determined that the increased cost of staying on the Mall was prohibitive. So let’s accentuate the positives of holding this year’s book festival on a single day in the convention center. Read on and cheer up! RON CHARLES (THE WASHINGTON POST) Rather than stand in line for hours at one of the Mall’s 140 life-changing Porta-Potties, you can whisk through the convention center’s modern restrooms. NSA spy satellites can’t see which authors we’re interested in. In the new Culinary Arts Pavilion, cookbook and food writers will perform live demonstrations of favorite recipes.

DINING Jimmy Hopper’s path from telecommunications specialist to bakery owner is lined with wedding cakes. While working as an IT manager at Fidelity Investments in Dallas, Hopper picked up cake decorating as a hobby. “I took a few classes and it turned out I was pretty good at it,” Hopper says. “I became the unofficial baker when anyone at Fidelity got married.” Hopper moved to D.C. two years ago (primarily to be closer to his long-distance partner), and three weeks ago he opened Three Fifty Bakery. Though Hopper isn’t offering his signature cakes just yet, the storefront serves as a place where he can sell a mix of other creations. “A lot of people ask me what’s my ‘thing,’ ” Hopper says. “But I wanted to open a bakery where you could get whatever you liked. I want to do everything, and do it well.”

Broken Lizard, which formed at Colgate University in the ’90s, makes raunchy and insanely quotable films (like dorm room staple “Beerfest”) that, at their core, are about friendship. The quintet, which often tours together (members Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan will do stand-up together at the Drafthouse in October), still collaborates and has long promised to make a “Super Troopers” sequel.
Direct effect Outside of Broken Lizard, Chandrasekhar has directed a couple of films — “The Dukes of Hazzard” remake and 2012’s “The Babymakers” — and a ton of television shows. Since 2001, he’s lived a comedy nerd’s dream by directing episodes of “Arrested
Development,” “Undeclared,” “Happy Endings” and “Community.” He also helmed an episode of NBC’s ill-fated “Animal Practice,” because not every job can be a winner.
Stand-up guy Chandrasekhar started doing stand-up at 19 but got away from it as he became busy with film projects. After Broken Lizard’s 2009 live tour to promote the film “The Slammin’ Salmon,” though, he began performing live more often. His comedy is a mix of jokes and stories, with reflections on his youth, working in Hollywood and growing older. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

In the past, she has used old clothes, window frames, suitcases and a burnt-out piano. The installations are woven
together with her characteristic webs of yarn — she calls it “drawing in air” — symbolizing the interconnectedness of humanity. For her next big project — to be displayed at the Japanese Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale — Shiota is collecting keys, “ideally with notes,” she says. The keys may not turn out to be a huge hit with kids, but the shoes certainly are. “Children often connect to something as their favorite object, be it a shirt, a hat or a blanket,” says Carol Huh, Freer and Sackler’s assistant curator of contemporary Asian art. “They grasp the emotional attachment to an object more quickly than adults.” Perhaps this is why the kids found Shiota’s installation so enthralling, sitting patiently and watching as strangers’ favorite old shoes became a work of art. ELENA GOUKASSIAN (FOR EXPRESS)
“These belonged to my mother. When she was going out with my father, he bought these for her (30 years ago). Because she didn’t like the color and design, she wore them no more than once. Because she received them as a present, she did not want to throw them away.”
Jump-for-joy shoes “The shoes [were] worn by my dad, who died three years ago. When he was alive, he could not do exercises because of the back pain. I am sure that he is now jumping around in shoes like this in Heaven.”
Monkey-chasing shoes “This is the shoe I was wearing when a macaque at a mountain in Minoh Park in Osaka stole my purse — I chased it and got back my purse.”

Nice (and boring) guys really do win After the disaster that was the most recent season of “The Bachelor” starring Juan Pablo Galavis — the soccer player who became known as generally the worst — ABC knew it had to tread carefully for its follow-up choice. That’s why the next “Bachelor,” is a real official Nice Guy: Chris Soules, right, the sweet, sensitive farmer from tiny Arlington, Iowa. Oh, and he also runs his own multimillion-dollar business. The news was announced on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday. Chris, 32, was the second runner-up to Andi Dorfman on the most recent season of the “Bachelorette.” One thing is for sure: Get ready to hear the words “small town” countless times. And lots of farmer puns. Season 19 of “The Bachelor” is expected to premiere in January. (THE WASHINGTON POST) New York Times writer Dave Itzkoff will write a biography of Robin Williams for Henry Holt and Co.

Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Robert Langdon, who fights his amnesia as well as a plague that could destroy the world. “Inferno” will follow 2009’s “Angels and Demons.” The third book in the series, “The Lost Symbol,” will not get a film adaptation, Entertainment Weekly reported. Ron Howard, who directed “Angels,” will return for “Inferno.” (EXPRESS)
Jimmy Fallon will lead top comedians in saluting his “Tonight Show” predecessor Jay Leno with the nation’s top humor prize in October at D.C.’s Kennedy Center.

Will Arnett and Aaron Paul voice cartoons in “BoJack Horseman.”
RUDI GREENBERG | INSIDE JOKES
Neigh: ‘BoJack Horseman’ stalls right out of the gate Netflix’s new animated comedy “BoJack Horseman” seems like it was made in a lab for someone just like me. The adult-oriented cartoon stars “Arrested Development’s” Will Arnett as the titular character, a talking horse who’s a washed-up sitcom star, and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul as his slacker human roommate. Added to the mix is Alison Brie as a human writer, comedian Paul F. Tompkins as BoJack’s dog-actor rival, Amy Sedaris as a cat named Princess Carolyn and Patton Oswalt as a penguin (who works for Penguin Books). So, on Tuesday, after several days spent watching the Every “Simpsons” Ever marathon on FXX, I checked out “BoJack.” After one episode, I was ready to go back to Springfield. The premise is clever:
BET suspends producer after Blue Ivy joke
BoJack starred in the sitcom “Horsin’ Around,” in which he raised three children, and is now struggling to write his memoir. But the jokes are lazy and too focused on mocking Hollywood (like when BoJack complains about finding parking in an L.A. neighborhood.) Worse, Arnett and Paul are voicing character types they’ve played before. BoJack is an absent-minded narcissist of the Gob Bluth variety and Paul’s Todd, who has history with a Mexican drug cartel, might as well be Jesse Pinkman after he left New Mexico. Shouldn’t a cartoon be the one place we don’t have to worry about typecasting? Netflix has already renewed “BoJack” for a second season; maybe it gets funnier. For now, I’ll keep re-watching “The Simpsons.” For more comedy, follow Rudi on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.
BET has suspended a producer after a joke about Blue Ivy Carter that aired Monday on “106 & Park.” During a segment about the 2-year-old regarding Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, guest host Karrueche Tran said, “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” BET’s president of music programming and specials apologized on Twitter.

‘Sons of Guns’ canceled after rape allegations Discovery has canceled the reality show “Sons of Guns” after its star, William Hayden, was arrested in Baton Rouge, La., on Tuesday on charges of aggravated rape of a child, TMZ reported. The child in question is Hayden’s 12-year-old daughter. The show profiled his firearms business, which has also severed ties with him. (EXPRESS)

Suitland’s Best Kept Secret
THURSDAY | 08.28.2014 | EXPRESS | 53
blog log “Anything that puts the onus on women to ‘discreetly’ keep from being raped misses the point. We should be trying to stop rape, not just individually avoid it.” JESSICA VALENTI AT THEGUARDIAN.COM/COMMENTISFREE appreciates the idea
behind Undercover Colors nail polish, which changes color when exposed to common date-rape drugs. Though, “if we want to stop rape — not merely avoid it,” she writes, “we need to hold rapists accountable and stop blaming victims.” The product was conceived by four male North Carolina State University students who have received more than $100,000 to develop the polish.
“Even if you have no intention on buying a 99 pack, you have to be in awe of this feat of engineering. You could do the limbo under one of these things.” LESLIE HORN AT GIZMODO.COM admires Austin Beerworks’ 99-pack
of its Peacemaker Anytime Ale, which it is making available later this week for $99. If you’ve got a few friends to help you pick up the 7-foot, 82-pound case, follow the Texas brewery on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for details on acquiring your own.
“A typical text-block on an 8.5”x11” sheet measures 10 ¾” diagonally. Just sayin’” @PETE_SIMON offers an average sheet of paper as a reference point to consider for rumors first reported by Bloomberg on Tuesday that Apple will release a 12.9-inch version of its iPad Air in early 2015. Apple, whose tablet sales have declined recently, hasn’t commented.
“It feels pretty unlikely that any Jews got a look at this shirt before it went into production. Had they, maybe one of them would have said: ‘Hey, this looks like something that might trigger my grandmother’s PTSD.’” JORDAN WEISSMANN AT SLATE.COM wonders how no one at
Zara objected to this children’s top. The retailer apologized and pulled the “Sheriff’s” shirt after Twitter users pointed out its similarity to Nazi concentration camp prisoner uniforms.
“That ought to make for some vivid nightmares for some impressionable kids!” COMMENTER SWELLBOB AT WASHINGTONPOST.COM/BLOGS/THE-SWITCH
reacts to news that Disney recently filed a patent for “blimp-sized” puppets controlled by drones. There’s no guarantee, though, that anything like this “Nightmare Before Christmas”-inspired giant marionette will be seen at parks anytime soon.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may want something different for a good friend, but you must accept his or her decision once it is a done deal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) It’s important for you to focus your emotions; think about all those who have contributed to your own well-being. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) It may be time for you to give back. You’ll know precisely what you have to give, and to whom. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll be surprised and pleased to discover just how much another feels for you, though it may not change things for you just yet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may be feeling energetic and highly creative right now. Today is the day to contribute liberally to a community effort.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Nostalgia can serve you well, not only giving you pleasure, but also giving you food for thought — and a timely bit of inspiration. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You don’t have to get everything right, just enough that others can rely on you to come through when it’s important.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll have a chance to explore all of your pet issues. Take care that you don’t lash out and unintentionally scar a loved one.
TODAY: We revert back to low humidity and temperatures right around average. Skies are mostly sunny and winds are light, but with a refreshing feel from the northwest. The mugginess is missing in action, which should make for a lovely evening with clear skies and a calm breeze.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may not feel as though you are ready to do what is required, even though you have done it many times in the past. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It will be your turn to contribute to the conversation very soon, but for now you’ll want to listen to what others have to say.

Doesn’t it go without saying at this point? The makers of the “Grand Theft Auto” video games say Lindsay Lohan sued to get attention when she asserted the newest game features a character based on her. In Manhattan court papers, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. called the case frivolous. They want it dismissed and want Lohan to pay their legal fees. Lohan claimed in July that the game uses her image and voice for one of its characters. (AP)
Justin Bieber was rear-ended by a photographer in West Hollywood, Calif., on Tuesday. TMZ reported that Bieber “slammed” on his brakes, causing the photographer’s Prius to hit the fender of Bieber’s red Ferrari. No injuries were reported. Bieber took to Twitter to vent his frustration, citing Princess Diana’s fatal car crash in 1997. “There should be laws against what I just experienced,” Bieber tweeted. “We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana … I don’t have a problem with paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger.” (EXPRESS)
