A Hawaii couple who thought they’d married 36 years ago officially tied the knot after learning of a document mix-up. Randy and Leigh Mitchell were legally married at the Kealakekua courthouse last week, though their wedding was in 1982. Leigh discovered the mistake when she tried to renew her driver’s license, which required her marriage license to show her name change. It turned out their marriage license had never been filed. (AP)

From weird routes to wrong crabs, the CIA agent’s D.C. feels off
The Orioles kick out their biggest fan
TELEVISION If you’re planning to binge the new “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” series that was released on Amazon on Friday, keep your eyes peeled for a few familiar backdrops: The thriller, which functions as a prequel to the Tom Clancy novels and movies, features scenes actually filmed in Washington. (Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post and Express.) Those spires of Georgetown University rising up as our hero — a CIA analyst who trades desk work for dangerous work in the field — pedals across townhouselined city streets? They’re the real deal. When Ryan, played by John Krasinski, rows across a sundappled Potomac, it’s no stand-in. But to nitpick in the grand tradition of Washingtonians factchecking fictional portrayals of our fine city, a montage showing Ryan’s bicycle commute from
Jack Ryan, played by John Krasinski, pedals through Georgetown.
the Potomac Boat Club, where he ends his morning workout, to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., is certainly a roundabout one. First he’s in Georgetown, then his route takes him by the Jefferson Memorial, then west on Pennsylvania Avenue (with the Capitol Building looming in the backdrop). Guess he really does want to stay fit? Local viewers also had a shell to pick with another scene in which Ryan takes a date to a Wash i ng ton- a re a se a food
restaurant. The table setup is weird: There’s a single Dungeness (not blue!) crab in front of each diner with a box of Old Bay just sitting on the side of the paper-covered table (what are they supposed to do with this?). And the technique is totally wrong — Ryan encourages his date, who is unschooled in crab dissection, to simply take a whack at the center of the shell. “Like you mean it,” he urges. Um, that’s not how that works, Jack. EMILY HEIL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Heat ignites school debate VIRGINIA
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous held a news conference Wednesday outside a Laurel, Md., school.
index climbed above 100 degrees. Baltimore County officials preemptively canceled school in 10 buildings that do not have central air conditioning, and said they will be closed today as well — a third consecutive day. Dejah Anderson, a 16-yearold student at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, said she wasn’t sure whom to blame. But, really, she said, it doesn’t matter. “It should just get fixed, honestly,” Anderson said. “Just get the air conditioning fixed.” In Baltimore, parents waited in the shade to pick up children from Roots and Branches School, a public charter elementary school that also closed early. Several expressed resignation about the condition of public schools in the city and disbelief that the outcome of the governor’s race
Gov. Larry Hogan said local officials must ensure schools are cool enough for students.
would improve their situation. “Everybody has something to do with it,” said Alfred Camphor, 41, who picked up his 9-year-old daughter. “The lack of caring has gotten worse.” Comptroller Peter Franchot, D, a Hogan ally who has unsuccessfully lobbied local leaders for more than a decade to install window AC units as a stopgap
measure, estimated that more than 44,000 students in the Baltimore region missed school Wednesday because classrooms were too hot. Temperatures were forecast to be just as high today. At Roots a nd Bra nches, Quinny Smith, 48, signed out her 8-year-old son after picking up two grandchildren an hour earlier from nearby Harlem Park Elementary School. She said responsibility for getting air conditioning in the schools has “got to come from the governor. … This should have been done before the school year started.” But Smith said she’s unsure whether Hogan or Jealous would be better for Baltimore’s schools. “I’m over it,” she said of the governor’s race, as she led the children away.

A fashion change for D.C. police
It’s about comfort. And durability. And stealth. After decades of wearing light-blue uniform shirts, D.C. police are switching to navy blue. The shift from light to dark comes with a new design — hidden, internal suspenders to more evenly distribute the weight of the gun belt and potentially ease back pain. The new shirts also allow for bullet-resistant vests, now placed under uniform shirts, to be worn on the outside. Police Chief Peter Newsham tweeted his officers are excited about the fashion change for one simple reason: The shirts are “more comfortable.” (TWP)

Taylor’s campaign has come under harsh scrutiny for mounting a last-minute effort to gather signatures to help Brown.

MARYLAND As blistering temperatures Wednesday shuttered dozens of Maryland schools with inadequate air conditioning, the two men running to be governor were embroiled in a second straight day of finger-pointing over the issue. Gov. Larry Hogan, R, blamed local officials for failing to ensure bearable temperatures despite his efforts to apply public pressure and some additional state funding in recent years, and to penalize school districts that do not have working cooling systems in place. “It’s completely unacceptable,” Hogan said Wednesday during a Board of Public Works meeting in Annapolis. “I can assure you that we’re going to continue to press to get answers and continue to press to get action.” His Democratic challenger, Ben Jealous, went to Laurel High School in Prince George’s County, which was closing early because of the heat, and used the moment to question the effectiveness of Hogan’s leadership. “This is not a time for a governor to stand in an air-conditioned room in the state capital and make pronouncements,” Jealous said, appearing before reporters in 90-degree noontime heat. Students in all Prince George’s County schools and dozens more in Baltimore City were released early Wednesday as the heat

Jeffrey Winder was found guilty Tuesday of misdemeanor assault and battery for a second time during an appeal trial Tuesday. Prosecutors said Winder could be seen on video punching Jason Kessler during a news conference the day after the “Unite the Right” rally drew hundreds of white nationalists to Charlottesville. Jurors could have sentenced Winder to up to 12 months of jail time and $2,500 in fines. They decided instead to give him a $1 fine with no jail time. (AP)

Op-ed details insider revolt Unsigned column by senior official reveals effort to thwart Trump
Mistrial ruled in Blackwater guard’s retrial
SUSAN WALSH (AP)
POLITICS In a striking anonymous broadside, a senior Trump administration official wrote an opinion piece in The New York Times on Wednesday claiming to be part of a group of people “working diligently from within” to impede President Trump’s “worst inclinations” and the ill-conceived parts of his agenda. Trump said it was a “gutless editorial” and “really a disgrace,” and his press secretary called on the official to resign. L ater, T r u mp t we ete d : “TREASON?” The writer, claiming to be part of the “resistance” to Trump, but not from the left, said: “Many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.” The newspaper described the author of the column only as a senior official in the Trump administration. “It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room,” the author continued. “We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.” A defiant Trump, holding an event with sheriffs at the White House, lashed out at The Times for publishing the op-ed.
President Trump lashed out at the New York Times over what he called a “gutless editorial” by an unnamed official.
“They don’t like Donald Trump and I don’t like them,” he said of the newspaper. The opinion piece immediately triggered a wild guessing game as to the author’s identity on social media, in newsrooms and inside the West Wing, where officials were blindsided by its publication. In a statement, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the author of choosing to “deceive” the president by remaining in the administration. “He is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people,” she said. “The coward should do the right thing and resign.” Sanders also called on the Times to “issue an apology” for
publishing the piece, calling it a “pathetic, reckless, and selfish op-ed.” Trump allies and political insiders scrambled late Wednesday to unmask the writer. The writer is identified as an “administration official”; does that mean a person who works outside the White House? In a tweet, The Times used the pronoun “he” to refer to the writer; does that rule out all women? The references to Russia and the late Sen. John McCain — do they suggest someone working in national security? Hotly debated on Twitter was the author’s use of the word “lodestar,” which pops up frequently in speeches by Vice President Mike Pence. Others argued that the word “lodestar”
could have been included to throw people off. Former administration official Omarosa Manigault Newman tweeted that clues about the writer’s identity were in her recently released tell-all book, offering a page number: 330. The reality star writes on that page: “Many in this silent army are in his party, his administration, and even in his own family.” The op-ed’s author alleged “there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment” because of the “instability” witnessed in the president. The 25th Amendment allows the vice president to take over if the commander in chief is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” ZEKE MILLER AND CATHERINE LUCEY (AP)
The approximate portion of the bonnethead shark’s diet that can come from seagrass, making it the first variety of shark to be deemed an omnivore, The Guardian reported. The findings, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, shake up the long-standing belief that sharks are pure, bloodthirsty carnivores. Scientists had known that bonnetheads, one of the world’s most common sharks, sometimes graze on seagrass, but assumed such consumption was incidental and not a part of their regular diets.

COURTS The retrial of a Blackwater security guard convicted of firstdegree murder in 2014 resulted in a hung jury Wednesday, dealing a blow to the Justice Department’s long pursuit of accountability for a 2007 shooting of unarmed civilians that drew international condemnation during the Iraq War. U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth of the District declared a mistrial after a jury of seven women and five men said it was deadlocked on the 16th day of deliberations in the case of Nicholas Slatten, above. Slatten, 34, was accused of unleashing the first shots that set off machine gun and grenade fire that killed or injured 31 civilians in stopped traffic at Baghdad’s Nisour Square on Sept. 16, 2007. It was the second time Slatten faced trial for murder in the shooting rampage that outraged diplomatic and humanitarian circles and sparked calls to end the U.S. government’s use of private military forces. Slatten will remain detained until at least Sept. 14, when assistant U.S. Attorney Fernando Campoamor-Sanchez said prosecutors will come back to Lamberth and Slatten’s defense team to say if the government intends to try him again. Charges were first brought against six Blackwater employees in 2008 and over the next decade their cases moved through trial and appeals courts. SPENCER S. HSU (THE WASHINGTON POST)

U.K.: Russian spies carried out attack LONDON Britain deepened its diplomatic feud with Moscow on Wednesday, charging two men it says are Russian military intelligence officers with the nerve-agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal, a double agent who betrayed the service by spying for the West. But U.K. authorities acknowledged there was little chance Russia would hand over the suspects, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, to face justice in Britain. Prime Minister Theresa May said the use of a chemical weapon in the city of Salisbury, which left a British woman dead and four people, including Skripal and his daughter, seriously ill, was carried out by officers of the GRU intelligence service and almost certainly approved “at a senior level of the Russian state.” “This was not a rogue operation,” she told lawmakers after police released photos of the suspects as they traveled through London and Salisbury before flying back to Moscow from Heathrow Airport on the evening of March 4, hours after

the Skripals were poisoned. Moscow strongly denies involvement in the attack, and Russian officials said they did not recognize the suspects. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the names and images of Petrov and Boshirov “say nothing to us.” British prosecutors said the two were being charged in absentia with conspiracy to murder, attempted murder and use of the nerve agent Novichok. Sue Hemming of the Crown Prosecution Service said the U.K. wouldn’t ask Moscow to hand the men over because Russian law forbids extradition of its citizens. Britain has obtained domestic and European arrest warrants for the suspects, meaning they can be detained if they leave Russia for another European country. JILL LAWLESS (AP)

Plastic bins hold the most germs at airport Next time you go through airport security, it might be worth washing your hands afterward. According to the results of a new study published by Finnish and British researchers, half of plastic airport security bins may carry viruses that cause respiratory infections. The study, published last week in the journal BioMed Central Infectious Diseases, tested swabs from surface samples of the plastic bins at Helsinki Airport that were taken at three different times during the peak of the 2015-2016 flu season. Four of eight samples contained the rhinovirus or adenovirus, which cause coldlike symptoms. Compare that to the airport toilet, where none of the 42 samples taken showed the presence of a cold virus. Researchers attributed this to frequent cleaning. “We found the highest frequency of respiratory viruses on plastic trays used in security check areas for depositing handcarried luggage and personal items,” the scientists wrote. The results, they said, demonstrated that airports can serve as a potential risk zone for an “emerging pandemic threat.” And the preponderance of viruses on the bins may be even more cause for concern among Americans, who have often been instructed to empty their food and snack items straight into the plastic bins.

Jebi leaves path of destruction
NISHINOMIYA, JAPAN | An aerial photo shows burned cars at a seaside dealership in Japan a day after Jebi, the strongest typhoon in 25 years, pummeled the Osaka area. About 100 cars burned after their electrical systems were shorted out by seawater, fire officials said.

A large commercial jet from Dubai caused a scare Wednesday after it landed at New York’s Kennedy Airport carrying several passengers and crew members who fell ill with flu-like symptoms. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quarantined the Emirates aircraft so it could evaluate about 100 of the passengers. Some complained of coughs, headaches, sore throats and fevers. Officials said 10 — three passengers and seven crew members — were hospitalized in what Emirates called a “precaution.” The rest were cleared to continue their travels while the CDC sought to determine what caused the sickness.

Twin bombings at a wrestling training center in a Shiite neighborhood of Afghanistan’s capital on Wednesday killed at least 20 people, including two reporters, and wounded 70, Afghan officials said. Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said a suicide bomber struck the center and then a car bomb went off nearby. Sediqullah Tawhidi, a senior member of the Afghan journalists federation, said a reporter and a cameraman working for Tolo TV were among those killed, and another local TV reporter was wounded. No one immediately claimed the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of the country’s Islamic State affiliate. (AP)

Kavanaugh treads lightly Supreme Court pick says he won’t answer hypotheticals about subpoenas, pardons
Mass. win adds momentum to liberal upsurge
CHIP SOMODEVILLA (GETTY IMAGES)
SUPREME COURT Pressured by Democrats with President Trump on their minds, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh rejected repeated efforts at Wednesday’s Senate confirmation hearing to reveal his views about a president pardoning himself or being forced to testify in a criminal case. For a second day, Kavanaugh insisted to probing senators that he fully embraced the importance of judicial independence. But he refused to provide direct answers to Democrats who wanted him to say whether there are limits on a president’s power to issue pardons, including to himself or in exchange for a bribe. He also would not say whether he believes the president can be subpoenaed to testify. “I’m not going to answer hypothetical questions of that sort,” Kavanaugh said in response to a question from Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., about pardons. Still, he began his long day in the witness chair by declaring that “no one is above the law.” Democrats are concerned that Kavanaugh will push the court to the right on abortion, guns and other issues, and that he will side with Trump in cases stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign. The 53-yearold appellate judge answered cautiously when asked about most of those matters, refusing an invitation from Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., to pledge to step aside from any Supreme Court cases dealing with Trump and Mueller’s investigation.
Brett Kavanaugh told senators Wednesday that he fully embraces the importance of judicial independence.
Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Kavanaugh right away whether he would be independent from the president who chose him for the lifetime position. Kavanaugh said, “The first thing that makes a good judge is independence, not being swayed by political or public pressure.” But when asked more specific questions, including whether a president can be required to respond to a subpoena, Kavanaugh said, “I can’t give you an answer on that hypothetical question.” The Supreme Court has never answered that question, and it is among the potentially most important since Trump could face a subpoena from special counsel Mueller. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., asked whether a president could be criminally investigated or indicted. Kavanaugh again said he had never taken a position on those issues, though he did
On Roe v. Wade On the 1973 decision that ensures access to abortion, Judge Brett Kavanaugh said: “Respect for precedent is important. ... Precedent is rooted right in the Constitution itself.” In likening Roe to the Miranda ruling about the rights of criminal suspects, Kavanaugh said the court specifically reaffirmed both decisions in later cases that made them “precedent on precedent.” He defended his dissenting opinion last year in the case of a pregnant immigrant teen in federal custody that denied her access to an abortion.

documents from his three years as staff secretary. They say those could shed light on his views about policies from that era. Majority Republicans have declined to seek the papers, and instead have gathered documents from his work as White House counsel to Bush. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., asked Kavanaugh if he would seek a delay in his hearing so the paper trail could be vetted. Kavanaugh declined to engage, saying “I do not believe that’s consistent” with prior nominations. Kavanaugh stood by his 2006 testimony when nominated for the appellate court when he said he was not involved in some Bush-era policies, particularly a bill-signing statement on the treatment of terror suspects. Republicans hope to confirm Kavanaugh in time for the first day of the new Supreme Court term on Oct. 1. MARK SHERMAN AND LISA MASCARO (AP)
BOSTON Ayanna Pressley is all but assured of becoming the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts, the latest example of the Democratic Party’s embrace of diversity and liberal politics as the recipe for success in the Trump era. The 44-year-old’s upset victory against longtime Democratic Rep. Michael Capuano in Tuesday’s primary sets the stage for Pressley to represent an area once served by Tip O’Neill and John F. Kennedy. Her win comes at the tail end of a primary season in which black politicians have made a series of advances. For Pressley, as with many other ascendant candidates of color, unabashedly liberal credentials smoothed her path to victory in the primary. Pressley called for defunding the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE. That declaration helped her draw support from Massachusetts’ popular attorney general, Maura Healey, who has gained a national following for repeatedly suing President Trump in an attempt to block his policies on immigration, gun control and other issues. “This is a fight for the soul of our party and the future of our democracy,” Pressley told reporters Tuesday. With no Republicans running, only a write-in campaign could possibly stand between her and Washington. STEVE LEBLANC (AP)

Draw falls favorably for Serena
WNBA FINALS | MYSTICS VS. STORM
Hop on the bandwagon
With an 86-81 triumph over the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday, the Washington Mystics advanced to the WNBA Finals for the first time. The Mystics, who have won exactly one playoff round in their first 20 seasons, will take on ageless Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm in a best-of-five series beginning Friday. Three more wins would give D.C. its first professional basketball title since the NBA’s Bullets outlasted the Seattle SuperSonics in a seven-game series 40 years ago. Even if you haven’t watched a minute of Mystics basketball this season, here are four good reasons to jump on the bandwagon before Game 1. SCOTT ALLEN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Elena Delle Donne would like your support Delle Donne, the 2015 league MVP, was acquired from the Chicago Sky after the 2016 season and helped transform a long-struggling franchise. The Mystics went 18-16 last year, but were swept in the WNBA semifinals by the Minnesota Lynx. This year, Washington tied a franchise record with 22 wins, then blew out the Sparks in a single-elimination second round. In Game 2 of the semifinals, Delle Donne suffered a bone bruise that forced her to miss Game 3. She returned for Games 4 and 5, and — according to ESPN Stats & Info — joined Lisa Leslie as the only players to open the postseason with five straight double-doubles. “D.C.’s become home to me,” she told ESPN. “Now we need the city to really rally behind us, because we’re not finished yet.”
Ariel Atkins is the real deal One of the teammates who helped carry Delle Donne and the Mystics in Game 5 was Ariel Atkins. The rookie guard out of Texas continued her impressive postseason run Tuesday with a game-high 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting. “I was nervous before the game, just because I love it, I have a passion for it,” Atkins said. “But we’ve got some vets on the team that I can look to. … I don’t have to be everything in the world. I get to look to them and lean on them a lot. They really help me.” Delle Donne was grateful: “My goodness did Ariel Atkins step up for us,” she said. “She is not a rookie.” Mystics coach Mike Thibault called Atkins “about the most poised rookie I’ve ever been around.” Shea Serrano, a staff writer at The Ringer, tweeted: “Give me Ariel Atkins on my team literally every single time.”
Playing for titles shouldn’t be taken for granted Who has it better than Ted Leonsis right now? The Monumental Sports & Entertainment CEO has been on a championship heater over the past three months. First, the Capitals won the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. In July, the Leonsis-owned Washington Valor won the Arena Football League title, despite a 2-10 regular season. Washington went 20 years without the Capitals, Redskins, Wizards or Nationals making an appearance in the conference finals. Now a third title in three months is a real possibility. D.C. United is making a late playoff push and the Nats … well, at least you’ll be spared the mid-October disappointment this year. Go ahead and book the Capital City Go-Go as G League champs now.
The more the merrier The Mystics were the talk of D.C. sports Twitter for a time on Tuesday night, which hasn’t often been the case. Die-hard fans celebrated at the Game 5 watch party at the Greene Turtle at Capital One Arena, and Wizards guard Bradley Beal and Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice were among those who congratulated the team on Twitter. “Hell yeahhh,” Beal tweeted, along with four exclamation points. “Proud of these women,” Guice tweeted. As with the Capitals’ Stanley Cup run, and to a much lesser extent with the Valor, the deeper a team gets in the playoffs, the more casual observers tend to pay attention. The Mystics likely made some new fans on Tuesday night. They should pick up a lot more over the next three- to-five games.
When Serena Williams rocketed to a 6-4, 6-3 victory Tuesday over Karolina Pliskova that sent the American to her 12th semifinal in New York, it vanquished the last of the highly seeded women who were supposed to give her trouble when the draw was released. Williams topped her sister Venus 6-1, 6-2 in the third round. She didn’t have to face No. 1 seed Simona Halep in the quarterfinals because the reigning French Open champ was upset in her opener. No. 3 Sloane Stephens lost her quarterfinal to No. 19 Anastasija Sevastova, which meant that No. 8 Pliskova was the only top-10 player left. Williams, a six-time U.S. Open champ, will play Sevastova tonight (7, ESPN). (TWP)

Surprise Ravens star aims for 1,000 yards and trip to the playoffs NFL Alex Collins enters this season looking to rush for 1,000 yards, enhance his stature among NFL running backs and help the Ravens reach the postseason for the first time since 2014. These goals are far more ambitious than his lone objective last
year, which was to earn a place on Baltimoreâ€™s 53-man roster. After being waived by Seattle early last September, Collins was signed to the Ravensâ€™ practice squad. He was activated in Week 2, playing in 15 games and starting 12. Collins averaged 4.6 yards per carry, finished with 973 yards rushing â€” the 11th-best total in the league â€” and caught 23 passes for 187 yards. If he can come up with an

He rushed for 125 yards in his rookie season, not enough to convince Seattle to keep him. He made some noise with Baltimore last year, but itâ€™s been a quiet summer for the 5-foot-10, 208-pound back, who carried only three times this preseason. â€œThereâ€™s an expectation at the end of that,â€? he said. â€œThey took care of me in the preseason, so I feel like itâ€™s my responsibility to take care of them in the regular season.

Taking stock of each division As the NFL season kicks off tonight, which new faces are poised to shake up the parity-filled league?
What’s familiar: Anchored by DT Fletcher Cox and boosted by the addition of Haloti Ngata next to him, the Super Bowl champion Eagles should have the league’s deepest D-line again. What’s fresh: Pat Shurmur’s offense made Case Keenum look great in Minnesota. What will the new Giants coach do with Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley? The X-factor: Randy Gregory has tantalized the Cowboys with his pass-rushing talent this preseason. If the drug bans are behind him, he forms a dangerous tandem with Demarcus Lawrence (14.5 sacks in 2017).
What’s fresh: In DJ Moore, Carolina may have a legit No. 1 receiver for Cam Newton. The last time the Panthers used their top draft pick on a wideout, Kelvin Benjamin had 1,008 yards and nine TDs as a rookie in 2014.
What’s fresh: Kirk Cousins debuts as the Vikings’ $84-million QB. Defensive guru Matt Patricia and quarterback guru Matt Nagy are first-time head coaches in Detroit and Chicago.
What’s fresh: Jimmy Garoppolo enters his first full year as the 49ers’ QB. Coach Steve Wilks and QB Sam Bradford are new in Arizona.
What’s familiar: Only Todd Gurley and Le’Veon Bell had more all-purpose yards than Saints RB Alvin Kamara (1,901) last year. Mark Ingram will help take pressure off Drew Brees after he serves a four-game PED suspension.
What’s familiar: Over the past two years in Green Bay, Davante Adams has averaged 75 catches for 941 yards and 11 TDs. QB Aaron Rodgers hopes to stay healthy a year after a broken collarbone limited him to seven games.
The X-factor: How do the Bears get the most out of rookie LB Roquan Smith? Getting offenses to game plan around trade acquisition Khalil Mack is a solid start.
What’s fresh: Sam Darnold will start at QB from Day 1 with the Jets. Josh Allen has to wait to supplant Nathan Peterman in Buffalo.
What’s fresh: Titans coach Mike Vrabel, who won three Super Bowls as a Patriots linebacker and coordinated Houston’s defense last year, brings the “Patriot Way” to Tennessee.
What’s fresh: Since the Browns last made the playoffs in 2002, they’ve finished last in the division 13 times. Hue Jackson is 1-31 as coach, but he hopes new offensive coordinator Todd Haley and QB Tyrod Taylor can change that.
The X-factor: RB LeSean McCoy is cleared to start the season for the Bills, but an NFL investigation into whether he was involved in a break-in and attack against his ex-girlfriend has the potential to change that.
The X-factor: Two QBs on the mend could shake up the South. Andrew Luck is back in Indianapolis after a year of shoulder rehab. The Texans’ Deshaun Watson threw 18 TD passes in six starts before tearing his ACL.
The X-factor: Le’Veon Bell held out all of camp and, as of Wednesday evening, still hadn’t reported to the Steelers. In Baltimore, will QB Joe Flacco thrive or wilt with rookie Lamar Jackson breathing down his neck?
The X-factor: Safety Earl Thomas, the last member of the “Legion of Boom” left in Seattle, held out all of camp because he wants a new deal in the last year of his contract.
AP AND GETTY IMAGES
The X-factor: Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian has too much talent in Atlanta for the club to be 15th in points per game again.
What’s familiar: The Rams made plenty of splashy additions — WR Brandin Cooks, DT Ndamukong Suh and CBs Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib — but it’s their two returning AllPros, RB Todd Gurley and DT Aaron Donald, that make them Super Bowl contenders.
What’s familiar: No matter the true extent of the internal strife between them, QB Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick being back means the Patriots are heavily favored to win the division for the 16th time in 18 years.
What’s familiar: With rising superstars in CB Jalen Ramsey and RB Leonard Fournette — both just 23 — Jacksonville is primed to win the division for the fourth time in 24 years.
Giants WR Beckham: “I learned my lesson,” won’t be baited by Jags CB Ramsey
What’s familiar: Steelers WR Antonio Brown, 30, is coming off four straight All-Pro seasons. He’s topped 1,200 yards the past five years.
What’s familiar: As QB Philip Rivers begins his 15th year with the Chargers, they have enough weapons on offense and the talent on defense to win the division. Jon Gruden is back as Oakland’s coach after he left 17 years ago. What’s fresh: Denver signed Case Keenum to solidify the QB position for the first time in the team’s post-Peyton Manning era. The Chiefs hand the keys to QB Patrick Mahomes and now have WR Sammy Watkins to help him. The X-factor: No. 5 pick Bradley Chubb gives the Broncos a Von Miller clone on the opposite edge of Miller.

Wanted: Creative young coaches
GAIL BURTON (AP)
NFL As the NFL draft approached this year, Bears general manager Ryan Pace sneaked into coach Matt Nagy’s office late one night. Eyes glued to a screen, Nagy studied film of a wide receiver prospect, scribbling his evaluation in a notepad. That was standard. Pace also noticed a second notepad, which was not. Each time Nagy saw a play he liked, he jotted down a reminder in the second notebook to go back and think about incorporating it into the Bears’ playbook. “I love that,” Pace said. “… That progressive style of thinking is what you need to stay ahead in the league.” If the summer is any indication, uproar over issues pertaining to the national anthem and new helmet-contact rules will dominate conversation this NFL season. For an idea of what will define the year on the field, start with Nagy’s second notebook. The Bears’ hiring of Nagy, 40, provides a window into where the NFL is headed. More than ever, teams have started to embrace new ideas and hunt for coaches willing to implement them.
NAM Y. HUH (AP)
Once-stodgy clubs hire innovative thinkers who crib from college game
With 40-year-old coach Matt Nagy, top, the Bears are hoping to replicate the success the Rams found last year with 32-year-old coach Sean McVay.
The Eagles won the Super Bowl with a backup quarterback last year, in part, because secondyear coach Doug Pederson built an offense reliant on concepts borrowed from college. The Rams morphed from a plodding exemplar of mediocrity to a thrilling division winner in
the mold of first-year coach Sean McVay, then 31, whose up-tempo offense helped Jared Goff evolve from a potential bust into a likely franchise quarterback. Kyle Shanahan, who helped usher the run-pass option and zone read plays into the NFL as Robert Griffin III’s offensive
coordinator in Washington, took over the 49ers last year at age 37. The rest of the league took notice. Of the seven new coaches hired, five had never held the title before. Three — Nagy, Matt Patricia (Lions) and Mike Vrabel (Titans) — are 43 or younger. Rule changes benefiting offense have also allowed more room for creativity, too. Receivers who don’t feel threatened by crushing hits can catch passes from quarterbacks who are protected from many blows. Technology has made it easier for ideas to spread. Coaches can find and watch film easily. Teams have also started mining the college ranks for coaching talent. Nagy had never worked with former Oregon coach Mark Helfrich, but he hired him as his offensive coordinator in Chicago. Todd Monken, a former coordinator at Oklahoma State and head coach at Southern Mississippi, is the offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay. The Bills hired offensive coordinator Brian Daboll after he spent a season at Alabama. Long resistant to collegestyle offensive ideas, N F L teams have started to embrace them. They will be everywhere this season, starting with the notebook in Nagy’s office. ADAM KILGORE (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Nike set to air Kaepernick’s ad during games all season
Police: Kicker didn’t recall details of apparent attack
Nike on Wednesday released its first “Just Do It” ad narrated by out-ofwork quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and an AP source said the spot is set to air during tonight’s NFL opener and in football broadcasts through the season. The two-minute spot highlights stars such as LeBron James and Serena Williams and supports NFL players protesting social injustice during the national anthem, a practice that Kaepernick started. (AP)
According to a police report released Tuesday, rookie Ravens kicker Kaare Vedvik could not recall the circumstances of an apparent assault that put him in the hospital and on the team’s non-football injury list. The report quotes the head of Ravens security, who said Vedvik told him he couldn’t remember what happened after he checked in with a teammate around 3 a.m. Saturday. (AP)
Chiefs safety Berry (heel) questionable for Sunday at Chargers
“The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten.” EARL THOMAS, talking about the lack of a resolution to his contract holdout in an Instagram post Wednesday. The safety told ESPN he planned to report to the Seahawks this week. Missing more time would’ve led Thomas, 29, to forfeit $500,000 per game.
Philly looking to reboot after raising banner NFL Before the Eagles begin their quest for a repeat, they’ll have one more celebration. The first Super Bowl banner in franchise history will be unveiled tonight in Philadelphia before the NFL season kicks off with the Eagles hosting the Falcons (8:20, NBC). Coach Doug Pederson has preached the importance of moving forward and focusing on the present if the Eagles are going to have any chance of becoming the ninth team to repeat as Super Bowl champs. They have a tough opponent in the Falcons, who were 2 yards away from knocking the Eagles out of the playoffs in the divisional round, but Matt Ryan’s pass to Julio Jones fell incomplete in the right corner of the end zone on fourth down. “It’s a new team, new year,” Pederson said. “We’re sitting here 0-0 with a great opportunity against a great opponent. Quite honestly, that’s their focus.” The goal now for the Falcons is to finish the season at home in Atlanta, where the Super Bowl will be played in February. Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, above, will be under center tonight because Carson Wentz hasn’t been medically cleared following knee surgery last December. But three other players who suffered seasonending injuries will return: ninetime Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, returner/running back Darren Sproles and linebacker Jordan Hicks. ROB MAADDI (AP)

Playing’s the thing at WashingCon CONVENTIONS WashingCon, now in its fourth year, brings together 1,000-plus attendees for a weekend festival of “tabletop” games, a blanket term for board games like The Settlers of Catan, role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, card games like Magic: The Gathering — anything where the players don’t need a screen or a
battery-powered device. Board games are big winners these days. Sales figures are growing, and more people are picking up the hobby, drawn by an ever-expanding medley of games that tackle subjects ranging from hunting dragons in a fantasy realm to managing a presidential campaign in this one. The popularity of conventions like Gen Con, the Indianapolis game convention that draws more than 60,000, sparked Matt Grosso, WashingCon’s director, to start a festival here.
Hundreds of tabletop games await attendees at this growing event
At WashingCon, board game enthusiasts can play casually, attend panels or compete in tournaments.
“There really wasn’t one in the area of the scale we thought it should be,” says Grosso, who moonlights as a game designer. The first year, WashingCon had space for around 250 people. It sold out almost immediately. Since then, WashingCon has
grown in attendance and variety of activities. Its 500-game library is open for anyone to check out something that looks interesting, with event volunteers on hand to help teach rules to beginners. The convention also hosts panel discussions on subjects
like inclusivity and diversity in gaming, as well as how to make a living as a designer. There are also tournaments for popular games like Catan, Pandemic and Codenames. Kathleen Donahue, owner of Labyrinth Games and Puzzles on Capitol Hill, says there’s something about D.C. that makes an event like WashingCon possible. “We have really nerdy, educated people in D.C.,” she says. “And games make your brain work in a fun, interesting way. So, people in D.C. really like games.” MICHAEL GAYNOR (THE WASHINGTON POST)

weekendpass My D.C. dream day
back in time, I would go back there when no one knew its name and there were no lines. Also if I could go back in time — when “Wonder Woman ” was filming here, they re-created one of the famous shops, Commander Salamander. The day after, the president of Miss DC and I were driving around and we thought, “Let’s go check out Commander Salamander.” We were looking for it and looking for it, but they took it down that same day. We didn’t even get to see the reboot.

REIGNING MISS DC
Allison Farris, the current Miss DC, will compete for a different set of sparklies this weekend: those of Miss America 2019. (The competition airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on ABC.) The pageant is seeking to revamp its image 97 years in — there is no longer a swimsuit category, for example — and Farris, 25, reflects the trend toward brains over bathing suits. The software developer for Microsoft works with the company’s DigiGirlz program, which teaches science and technology to young girls. She’s also a pianist — she’ll play Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 for the pageant’s talent portion. Farris has lived in D.C. off and on for three years and has made Cleveland Park her home for one. There will be no tiara on her D.C. dream day — she puts on her crown and sash for official appearances only — but Farris will spend some time treating herself royally.

I usually get my morning workout in at Vida Fitness. I love their HIIT [high-intensity interval training] classes. I go to whoever is teaching, but I usually try to go to Sara [Fadziewicz] at Gallery Place.
I’m a huge fan of Rock Creek Park; I love the walking trails. I like to be able to walk out of my apartment and see trees in my backyard. For lunch it would be Sweetgreen. I’m so excited because they’re renovating the original and I hope to be the first one through the door. If I could go
I love Everard’s Clothing in Georgetown; that’s one of my favorite shops. I also love Signature Boutique; they have the most incredible selection of gowns to cocktails to pantsuits so I can live my extravagant lifestyle — that I only get to experience for a year. [Editor’s note: Everard’s and Signature are two of Farris’ sponsors for the Miss DC Pageant.] My father and grandfather were big golfers, but I haven’t been able to go out and practice my golf game. Rock Creek Golf Course has classes; my sister and I live together and my father sent us golf clubs, so we have sets of golf clubs we need to put to use. I love D.C.’s rooftop scene. At the W Washington D.C., you can see the Tidal Basin and the monuments. I’d probably stop there before dinner. For dinner, I don’t think you can go wrong with seafood in Georgetown. They have Tony and Joe’s Seafood Place; they also have Farmers Fishers Bakers. I’ve been to Farmers Fishers Bakers for brunch, but I want to check out their dinner. Then for dessert I have to get a cupcake from Baked & Wired. If I could get a second dinner, there’s a little hidden gem in Dupont called Mari Vanna. And then I’d probably stop and get coffee again.

After 10 years, the DJs behind the eclectic party are moving on MUSIC While most gay nightclubs in D.C. were playing the usual Top 40 hits and club bangers, DJs Shea Van Horn and Matt Bailer set out to start a new party for alternative music lovers. They envisioned an event where you could hear RuPaul in the same set as Nine Inch Nails and not even question it. “We weren’t being critical of what was in D.C., [but] we just recognized that there could have been more to offer for the LGBTQ scene,” Van Horn says. So, in 2008, Van Horn and Bailer held their first Mixtape show at the now-defunct U Street Ethiopian restaurant Dahlak. The small, quaint venue was not the obvious choice to host a gay dance party, but that was the point. Mixtape was intended to be a monthly event that would show up in unconventional spaces. “The approach ended up being nontraditional,” Van Horn
says. “We liked the idea of not having our party in a ‘gay bar’ or ‘gay space.’ We wanted it to be something different.” At Mixtape, pop icons such as Britney Spears, Madonna and Whitney Houston are in heavy rotation, but acts like alt-rock trio Gossip and ’80s British synth bands Erasure and The Communards make appearances. Van Horn and Bailer’s bridging of the mainstream and alternative worlds boosted Mixtape’s popularity, and within six years the party began selling out big rooms in town like 9:30 Club. “The crowd that comes to our party understands that they’re open to hearing anything,” Van Horn says. “Anything goes when it comes to the music you’ll hear at Mixtape.” And now Mixtape itself is going. After hosting over 100 shows over the past decade, Van Horn and Bailer are saying farewell to the event with one last party Saturday at U Street Music Hall. “I think it’s fair to say that there are a lot more options when it comes to places to go — the whole scene has changed,”

It’s Mixtape’s last dance Most memorable Mixtape moments DJs Shea Van Horn, above left, and Matt Bailer, right, are the masterminds behind Mixtape, one of D.C.’s longest-running queer dance parties. Before hosting their last show on Saturday at U Street Music Hall, the two recount their most memorable moments from the past 10 years. First 9:30 Club show … and a proposal: For many local acts, there’s no greater barometer of success than getting to play 9:30 Club. Van Horn notes that Mixtape’s first show at the venue in 2014 felt like a surreal “rock star” moment. “Also, that’s the night that my husband proposed to me,” he says. Mixtape’s holiday party at Black Cat: Mixtape brought together different cross-sections of D.C.’s nightlife scene in ways that most dance parties couldn’t. Van Horn remembers one Mixtape holiday party where they spontaneously took a string of lights and passed it around the dance floor. “A few minutes later, the string was snaking throughout the crowd all the way to the entrance,” Van Horn says. “I remember thinking this is why we do this — to create connections through music and dancing. For a moment, everyone in the space was connected to each other.” Opening for Robyn: As Mixtape grew in popularity, Van Horn and Bailer were invited to open for several of their favorite acts, including Swedish dance superstar Robyn in 2012. “Being asked to open for Robyn at U Street Music Hall on my birthday was super memorable,” Bailer says. S.W.
Van Horn says. “I think now it’s time for us to sit back, take a look around and see what we can bring to the scene.” Van Horn hints that he and Bailer might get together for another project, although his timeline is vague. Two years ago, Van Horn relocated to India from D.C. after his husband accepted a new job there, though he occasionally travels back for Mixtape gigs. He plans to return to the U.S. within the next year or two and continue to make music. Bailer still resides in D.C. and DJs several local dance parties, including DC9’s long-running series Peach Pit. With Mixtape coming to an end, Van Horn hopes the project’s risk-taking approach will have a ripple effect. “I hope that Mixtape has been a catalyst for change, inspiring others to start their own parties,” he says. “When you feel like the nightlife options aren’t representing you, rather than get upset, just do it yourself.” STEPHANIE WILLIAMS (EXPRESS)

MUSIC When Stephen Cook, president of concert promoter TCG Entertainment, went looking for someone to helm the music for a touring symphonic tribute to Prince, there was only one person to call: Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the drummer and leader of the veteran hip-hop (and “Tonight Show”) band The Roots. “He’s a huge fan of Prince and he knows that music inside and out,” Cook says. “It was so obvious he was the guy for it. He’s taking these songs and arranging them and orchestrating them in a way that is really unique.” “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince,” which stages its second tour date Saturday at Wolf Trap, reworks the late pop icon’s hits and deep cuts for a 27-piece orchestra. Adding to the show are a live band and visual elements that — thanks to a partnership with the Prince family estate — include footage from Prince’s archives, music videos and live performances. While Thompson isn’t on the tour — acclaimed drummer Nisan Stewart of The Soul Seekers serves as musical director — his presence will be felt in the song
“He’s a huge fan of Prince and he knows that music inside and out. It was so obvious he was the guy for it.” STEPHEN COOK, president of TCG
Entertainment, on “4U” arranger Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson
choices and arrangements. “There’s gonna be things where you go, ‘Wait, what was that five seconds of something?’ I would call them gems from the catalog,” Cook says. “With Prince fans, there’s casual fans and there’s really in-depth fans and as [Thompson] creates [the music], he’s really understanding that and trying to play to that.” So, yes, you’ll hear “1999” and “Nothing Compares 2 U” with new orchestral arrangements, but you’ll also hear less famous songs like “Venus de Milo” and “Alexa de Paris.” Some songs will appear in medleys or as little snippets. “Purple Rain,” presumably, will lend itself especially
well to the orchestra treatment. Thompson worked with Prince collaborator Brent Fischer on the arrangements; session musician Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, who has played with Ray Charles and Dr. Dre, is part of the band. Still, the orchestra is the focus. Cook, who used to work for the Dallas Symphony, has put on several orchestral pop shows as a way to help classical music reach new audiences. “Classical music is hurting, attendance is hurting, so we’ve taken the lead in creating these kinds of shows,” he says of TCG, noting past orchestral shows he’s worked on with Wyclef Jean, The Roots and Kenny G. Ultimately, though, this latest show is meant to cater to fans who miss the Purple One’s electrifying live performances. “It’s about creating something that the fans are gonna celebrate,” Cook says. “That’s why we called it ‘4U: A Symphonic Celebration.’ Because that’s really what we’re doing.”

Gelato-maker Sierra Georgia scoops out treats that are uniquely her own
DINING The ultimate D.C. dessert. That’s what chef Sierra Georgia is aiming to bring to the competition this weekend at the area’s first Gelato Festival. “This is a city that cares about being healthy,” says Georgia, 32, which is why she’s transforming 20 gallons of local chain Turning Natural’s freshly cold-pressed juices into her
pineapple-ginger-apple sorbet. She’s spiking her concoction with algae to give it a vitamin boost — and a surprisingly cerulean hue — hence the name of her competing flavor, “Blue Majik.” “Blue is not normal,” she says. Very little that Georgia cooks up is. Her favorite response from folks eating her gelato: “How did you do this?” That’s a good
question not just about her distinctive treats, but also her business, Gelat’oh Brick & Motor, a food truck/catering/wholesale operation that serves both D.C. and Philadelphia. Back in 2013, the Howard University grad — then an executive staff assistant at the Federal Aviation Administration — decided her true calling was to own a cupcake truck. To help her baked
goods-mobile stand out, Georgia sought to partner with a local gelato shop. When she linked up with Dolci Gelati and debuted the Dolci Gelati Truck that summer, she saw the real demand was for cones, not cupcakes. So she went all-in with gelato. “It was the first gelato truck in D.C., and people went crazy,” says Georgia, who was equally smitten with the gig. “I’d just be
Sierra Georgia’s “White Coffee” gelato has won over customers — and judges.

weekendpass “I’m usually the only American person, and usually the only brown person.” SIERRA GEORGIA, on how she stands out from most of the gelato chefs she’s met at school and at international events
The scoop on the gelato fest Gelato was invented in Italy, and so was the Gelato Festival, which invites chefs to scoop up samples of their coolest ideas and compete for the title of best flavor. It’s proven such a popular concept that it’s gone international — first conquering Europe, and arriving stateside last year. This weekend, it makes its D.C. debut (City Market at O, 800 P St. NW; Sat., noon-8 p.m., Sun., noon-7 p.m., adults: $25-$30 per day, kids 2-12: $20-$25, kids under 2: free). Here’s what you need to know about the festival: There’ll be A LOT All 7,000 pounds of gelato served at the D.C. stage of the festival this weekend will be made on-site in a mobile laboratory. That’ll require 600 gallons of milk and cream.
turning people’s days around.” So it felt “like a bad breakup,” she says, when she parted ways with Dolci Gelati over a licensing deal disagreement in 2016. Instead of moping, Georgia made plans to do her own thing. Next stop: Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy. The three months she spent abroad studying, tasting and researching taught her several lessons. For starters, making gelato is a scientific process that requires the careful balancing of ingredients. So, if you want to make sweet potato pie gelato — one of Georgia’s faves — you can’t just toss the pie into a base without adjusting everything else in the recipe. “You have to do the math,” Georgia says, adding that she bakes entire pies for this recipe, since she hasn’t found any other way to capture just the right flavor. Another valuable lesson came when she tracked down a technique that produces what she describes as “flavor journeys” — you get one taste at the beginning
Want a taste? Beyond this weekend’s Gelato Festival, there are many other opportunities to taste Gelat’oh. The company (eatgelatoh.com) offers nationwide delivery. Owner Sierra Georgia, who splits her time between D.C. and Philadelphia, is about to open a cafe in northeast Philly, and has plans to launch a private class/event space in the District on Georgia Avenue. Customers can also soon find her stuff at the H Street Festival (Sept. 15) and on the menu at D.C. juice bar chain Turning Natural. V.H.
of a bite, and a different one at the back end. “The only way to have that time-release of flavor is an infusion,” Georgia says. In practical terms, that means steeping herbs or spices into a liquid, like making a cup of tea. One day of school was devoted to making infusion gelato. Georgia remembers the students were greeted that morning by a table covered with “dried things from
all walks of the earth.” She chose mint, which she paired with chocolate to approximate the taste of Andes Creme de Menthe candies. (Her instructor was dubious, but Georgia assured him that Americans would be into it.) Another group that day selected coffee beans, which they made into a brown gelato that was fine but nothing special. Her instructor mentioned that while they had let the beans sit in the hot liquid base long enough for them to actually brew, it would have been possible to strain them out earlier. That night, Georgia kept wondering what would happen if she removed the beans as soon as they released their aroma. So the next day at lunchtime, she tried it herself. “It tastes like what coffee smells like,” she says of the resulting gelato, which somehow maintained a white hue. “It blew my mind.” As Georgia has built up her Gelat’oh business over the past year and a half, that’s been her goal — to deliver the unexpected. She recognizes that she’s not like
most other gelato chefs she’s met at school and at international events. “I’m usually the only American person, and usually the only brown person,” she says. So she’s also trying to infuse that outsider identity into her flavors, conjuring up combos that no one else has imagined. Her fun twist on cookies and cream? It’s with Nilla Wafers. She’s just launched a cereal collection featuring breakout star Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Her repertoire also includes pink Kashmiri chai, honeysuckle and Jersey corn. Two weeks ago, she made her competition debut at the Chicago stop of the Gelato Festival’s American tour, and came in third place with her creation “White Coffee.” The success, she says, “inspired me to trust myself.” So she’s hoping to do even better on home turf scooping up “Blue Majik” this weekend. “It’s such a smooth ride,” she says of the sweet-tart, tropical flavor.

You can try everything A ticket entitles you to a taste from each of the eight competing chefs, who are bringing such flavors as “Crusty Fantasy” (with caramel, cashews and Rice Krispies) and “American Dream” (salted peanuts swirled with Coca-Cola reduction). You’ll also get samples from special guests, including Susan Soorenko of Moorenko’s in Silver Spring. In total, there will be more than 40 varieties to try.
D.C. has voting rights You get to pick which one you like the best, and so does a panel of expert judges. The combined scores will determine which chef wins this weekend. The champ also has a chance at a spot in the Gelato Festival World Masters. It’s basically the World Cup of frozen desserts — over the next three years, 5,000 chefs will compete in these festivals in cities all over the planet, and just 36 will make it to the finals in Florence, Italy, in 2021.

For the love of Dick Gregory Edwin Lee Gibson plays the iconic comedian in Arena’s ‘Turn Me Loose’ STAGE Edwin Lee Gibson spent only a month formally rehearsing for his role as iconic comedian and activist Dick Gregory in “Turn Me Loose.” But it’s a part the 53-year-old actor has been preparing for most of his life. “I’ve really always lived my life with him as my marker,” says Gibson, who recalls listening to Gregory’s comedy albums as a teenager growing up in Houston. “I was watching tapes of him last year before I got this role.” Two years after “Turn Me Loose” premiered off-Broadway, with “Scandal’s” Joe Morton in the lead role and John Legend among its producers, Gibson will play Gregory for a run at Arena Stage that opens Thursday. Gretchen Law’s play charts Gregory’s rise as a socially subversive stand-up in the 1960s, when he became the first black comedian invited for a “Tonight Show” interview, and his subsequent retreat from the entertainment industry in favor of a life spent fighting for civil rights. One year after Gregory’s death at age 84 in Washington, where he spent the latter part of his life, Gibson is conscious of the parallels between the racial injustice Gregory fought decades ago and the current political landscape. “One thing Dick Gregory’s story has shown is that not much has changed, and people, even well-meaning people, want things to change only so much,” says Gibson, an Obie Award-winning actor and playwright with more than 90 theater credits. “He is the kind of person, the kind of figure, that really shines a light on all of us. ... That’s what he stood for up until his passing, and what he leaves in the air for us.” Featuring just two actors — Gibson in the lead role and John Carlin filling several bit parts

Edwin Lee Gibson portrays the late comic and activist Dick Gregory in “Turn Me Loose.”
— “Turn Me Loose” relies on Gregory’s outsize persona to captivate audiences. Gibson, a former comic who got his start opening for Thea Vidale in 1989 and went on to spend six years moonlighting as a stand-up, has an appreciation for the “intense observation” a comedian like Gregory must have relied on to develop such incisive material. “In the functioning of the joke, [Gibson] is rigorous about what the joke actually is posturing,” says director John Gould Rubin, who also helmed the play’s off-Broadway run. “What is it
saying? Where is it being critical at the same time that it’s being funny? Where is it being confrontational? “It’s really great because Dick Gregory was simultaneously immediate and also deeply thoughtful and conscious and aware.” Gibson hopes to carry forward Gregory’s progressive ideals on race and poverty with similar care. Reflecting on the comedian’s political legacy, including a write-in campaign for president in 1968, Gibson lauded Gregory as “somebody who loved the country enough to consistently
critique it, and to consistently critique himself.” “There are far many more good people in the world than bad people, but there are far many more silent people than those that will speak,” Gibson says. “Some people are afraid for their lives, some people are afraid for their economics, some people are afraid for their status. “He wasn’t afraid of any of those things, and neither am I.” THOMAS FLOYD (EXPRESS)

When a newsman (Peter Finch) loses his mind on television and says he’ll commit suicide during the next broadcast, his network cuts away, then quietly sets up mental health services for him that are covered by his excellent health insurance. Ha ha ha that’s not what happens in 1976’s “Network” at all. Instead, they keep him on TV because they know the ratings will go through the roof. Of course this is pure fiction, as the media would never do anything so crass just to get more viewers. It’s likely this classic will make you as mad as hell and unable to take it anymore.

DC Shorts, the annual festival celebrating the medium of short film (motto: “If it’s terrible, at least it will be over soon!”) (that is not actually the motto), is returning for a 15th year. As always, nearly every genre is represented, and there’s a special emphasis on films by women, people of color, LGBT people and other often-marginalized groups. The shorts are organized into 18 showcases, many of which will be followed by a Q&A session. The festival also features a screenplay competition, in which six writers present their scripts at table readings, audiences vote for the best and the winner gets $2,000 to shoot his or her film for next year’s festival. If you don’t want to leave your comfy couch, an online option lets you watch every film at home.

This girl’s trip is only just beginning
‘New’ Sendak work captures a hint of magic
FILM What’s the best thing that’s happened to Tiffany Haddish in the past year? Tough question. The 38-year-old comedian takes a deep breath. “Meeting Oprah, getting a Tesla, hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards, winning awards, going on trips, staying in different countries, getting an award in Canada. Going to Africa was really super awesome. Getting to meet my aunties and cousins that I hadn’t met before. Having the funds to get my mother out of a mental institution — that’s freaking amazing — and getting her the best doctors. Being able to afford to take care of my grandmother. That’s really better than everything.” She pauses. “I could keep going because it’s been a pretty phenomenal year,” says Haddish, laughing. But she has one more to add. “Being able to see my ex-boyfriends in passing, them saying, ‘Hey, I’d like to take you to dinner some time,’ and me saying, ‘I’m sorry. I’m busy.’ That’s pretty awesome too.” A year after her breakout
role in “Girls Trip,” Haddish is indeed busy. At the top of the list is the Tyler Perry writtenand-directed comedy “Nobody’s Fool” (Nov. 2), which puts her on screen with Tika Sumpter and Whoopi Goldberg. She’ll also star alongside Kevin Hart in “Night School” (Sept. 28) and appear in Ike Barinholtz’s dark comedy “The Oath” (Oct. 12). Haddish is also prepping a Netflix stand-up special, attending the Emmys as a nominee for hosting “Saturday Night Live,” developing a sitcom with Danielle Sanchez-Witzel and readying Season 2 of “The Last O.G.,” with Tracy Morgan. “She just does what she does,” Sumpter says. “Tiffany is going to be Tiffany, you just let her run with it.” With blistering speed, Haddish has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand talents. Everyone from Paul Thomas Anderson to Judd Apatow (who’s interested in adapting Haddish’s memoir, “The Last Black Unicorn”) wants to work with her. And this fall, she’ll be everywhere. It’s the culmination of Haddish’s inspiring

After a breakout 2017, Tiffany Haddish is taking Hollywood by storm this fall
Tiffany Haddish is set to appear in three movies this fall — ”Nobody’s Fool,” “Night School” and “The Oath” — and, frankly, that’s still too few.
rise from a difficult upbringing to the highest reaches of show business. Haddish has said she was abused as a child before entering foster care, and later was briefly homeless while trying to make it as a stand-up in Los Angeles. But her confidence in her future never wavered. Haddish’s production company is named after her personal slogan: She Ready. “People always say, ‘Are you surprised?’ No, I’m not surprised. I manifested this,” Haddish says. “This is part of my list of goals.
I’m grateful I’ve accomplished this much so far, but there’s so much more I want to do. I want to build my own studio one day. I’ve got my little production company going and I want to create things that inspire people to be their best selves.” Yet as much as Haddish has accomplished, some objectives have remained elusive. “Still trying to get pregnant by Leonardo DiCaprio,” she says. “He’s not giving me the time of day right now, but he’ll come around.” JAKE COYLE (AP)
“Every time that I focus in on the current state of affairs, my anxiety level just peaks.” BRYAN CRANSTON, talking to Vulture about watching the news. The actor is playing beleaguered TV news host
Howard Beale in a stage adaptation of the 1976 film “Network,” which opens on Broadway in November.

BOOK REVIEW Like Maurice Sendak’s earlier classics, “Presto and Zesto in Limboland” opens by transporting its heroes to a threatening nightmarish realm. The run-on sentences are positively breathless, almost ditsy. “It was Thursday — no, no, it was Saturday when — no, wait a minute, I think it was Sunday — oh, I don’t remember what day it was, but one day Presto and Zesto, good friends, took a walk and ended up in Limboland.” As the unnamed narrator quickly explains, “They didn’t mean to go there, who would go there, but they had a lot on their minds, and to tell you the truth they were both upset that there wasn’t any cake for lunch.” “Presto and Zesto in Limboland” is a newly discovered Sendak work released Tuesday, six years after his death. While the text is insouciantly ramshackle, Sendak’s art exhibits its characteristic charm without being especially memorable. While this “new” Sendak may be a leftover, it happily is not a posthumous embarrassment — though the last pages of the story do come across as rushed and flat. Still, setting aside any minor cavils, adult readers will certainly enjoy “Presto and Zesto in Limboland” and — if it doesn’t seem too static or just plain weird — so will their children.

“‘Captain Marvel’ is already my favorite movie and there isn’t even a trailer for it yet.” @KELLYLEIMBACH8, reacting to the first official look at actress Brie Larson as Marvel superhero Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. The highly anticipated superhero flick is scheduled to come out on March 8, 2019. Fans are still waiting for the movie’s first trailer to drop, although the cover reveal came with behind-the-scenes images.
“Nike clearly listened to the noise, the lovers, the haters, and in the end, decided to go with more Kaepernick.” @DARRENROVELL, on Nike’s new commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick, a face of the brand’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. Nike ignored the Kaepernick backlash and released the commercial, in which the ex-NFL player says, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
“Bobby [Brown] ain’t even 50, y’all. He’s lived at least five lives. Jesus.” @LOVE_JORI, tweeting about Part 1 of BET’s “The Bobby
Brown Story.” The episode was a whirlwind for most viewers, as it touched on highlights from the R&B singer’s life: an alleged relationship with Janet Jackson, feuding with future wife Whitney Houston’s best friend Robyn Crawford, and his cocaine usage. “The Bobby Brown Story” is a continuation of BET’s “The New Edition Story” and picks up after Brown is kicked out of the group. Part 2 aired Wednesday night.
“Quick reminder that the ‘OK hand sign is a white power symbol’ is a dumb 4chan hoax that some now do.” @ABBYOHLHEISER, on attorney Zina Bash allegedly showing an alt-right hand symbol at a hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. That meaning of the gesture, which signals “OK,” is a hoax started on the website 4chan. Nonetheless, some accused Bash of being a white supremacist.

PAR SCORE 145-155, BEST SCORE 223
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keeping all of your responsibilities straight may be something of a juggling act today. Friends know to stay out of the way. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’re not going to keep silent when you feel strongly about an issue that others are misinterpreting. You set the tone. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You can guide another through treacherous territory today and learn enough about the journey to avoid dangers tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You feel that you are nearing the fulfillment of your destiny today — but you have much farther to go, surely. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The more certain you are about something, the more likely it is you will miss the mark. Not everything is crystal clear. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A change in the order of things has you off balance for a while today, until you realize just where it leaves you — and what’s now possible. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A highly anticipated encounter proves somewhat bittersweet, as you are left to cope with issues you didn’t think would arise. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can avoid most frustrations today, but not all. Be sure to leave yourself some room to improvise when you plan your next few steps.
