Pentagon Says Charity Will Pay Death Benefits Hagel: Foundation will be reimbursed when shutdown ends
The Obama administration, scrambling to tamp down a controversy over suspended death benefits for the families of fallen troops, announced Wednesday that a charity would pick up the costs of the payments during the shutdown. “The Fisher House Foundation will provide the families of the fallen with the beneﬁts they so richly deserve,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in a statement, adding that the Pentagon would reimburse the foundation after the shutdown ended. The Defense Department typically pays families about $100,000 within three days of a service member’s death, but ofﬁcials say the government shutdown was preventing those beneﬁts from being paid. Hagel said Fisher House, which

works with veterans and their families, had approached the Pentagon about making the payments. A senior defense ofﬁcial said the government could not actively solicit funds from private organizations but could accept an offer. Failure to make the payments has stirred outrage. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama was “disturbed” when he found out about the death beneﬁts and demanded an immediate solution. The Republican-led House unanimously passed legislation Wednesday to restore the death beneﬁts. But it’s unclear whether the Democratic-led Senate will take up the measure or whether Obama would sign it. Obama has threatened to veto other legislation passed by the House that would reopen individual funding streams, arguing that a piecemeal approach to ending the shutdown was unacceptable. Amid the controversy, Hagel made a rare trip Wednesday to Dover Air Force Base, Del., for the arrival of remains of four soldiers killed in Afghanistan. The remains of every U.S. military member killed overseas are ﬂown to Dover. Family members attend the arrival, but the secretary of defense usually does not. JULIE PACE AND ROBERT BURNS (AP)

Washington In a history-making selection, President Barack Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, a critical post as the nation continues its fitful economic recovery. If confirmed, she would be the first woman to lead the powerful central bank. Yellen, who holds the No. 2 spot at the Fed, would replace Ben Bernanke, whose eight-year tenure at the helm of the Fed ends Jan. 31. Obama heaped praise on Bernanke for taking “bold action” at the height of the ﬁnancial crisis in 2008. Obama introduced Yellen as a “proven leader.” “And she’s tough, not just because she’s from Brooklyn,” he said. He credited her for

being a consensus builder, adding: “She understands the human cost when people can’t ﬁnd a job.” Since the 1990s, Yellen has alternated among jobs at the Fed, the White House and her academic home, the University of California, Berkeley. She was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco from 2004 to 2010, when she warned about looming dangers in the real estate market and had a role in the Fed’s crisis response. She would be the ﬁrst Democrat chosen to lead the Fed since

Yellen is not expected to face any signiﬁcant opposition in the Senate, which must vote on her conﬁrmation for the post. Republicans, however, are likely to express concerns over whether she is adequately committed to the Fed’s goal of curbing inﬂation.

General says nation won’t heed pressure from strategic ally Analysis The U.S. decision to slash hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt will create new friction in Washington’s already uneasy relations with the military-backed government that ousted the ﬁrst democratically elected Egyptian president. And the consequences won’t end there. Whether the cuts are deep or symbolic, the move will anger Persian Gulf states, push Egypt to seek assistance from U.S. rivals and upend decades of close ties with the Egyptians that have been a bul-
wark of stability in the Middle East The U.S. has been considering such a move since July, when the Egyptian military ousted President Mohammed Morsi. Ensuing violence between authorities and Morsi supporters has killed hundreds. The scheduled Nov. 4 trial of Morsi on charges that he incited the killings of opponents while in ofﬁce and the U.S. decision to cut its aid to Egypt threaten to add to the turmoil. White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday said President Barack Obama “has been clear that we are not able to continue with business as usual. … We will announce the future of our assistance relationship with Egypt once we have made the appropri-
ate diplomatic and congressional notiﬁcations.” In Cairo, Gen. Abdel-Fattah elSissi, who led the military effort that ousted Morsi, described Egypt’s relations with the United States as founded on mutual interests. But he said his country would not tolerate pressure, “whether through actions or hints.” His comments were published Wednesday by the Cairo daily Al-Masry al-Youm. The United States gave Egypt $71.6 billion in assistance between 1948 and 2011, according to a Congressional Research Service report. Egypt has other allies that may be able to ﬁll the ﬁnancial void. In fact, Saudi Arabia and some of its Gulf Arab partners have provided a critical ﬁnancial lifeline for

The Gulf states, generally, will express disappointment over any cuts in U.S. aid to Egypt, he said. “The Gulf states aren’t happy because they think that not only has Egypt not done anything wrong, but that Egypt has done a lot of things right in snufﬁng out the early ﬂames of political Islam,” Alterman said. “They will feel that the U.S. in the interest of … democracy is acting against its own concrete interests and the interests of its friends.” DEB RIECHMANN (AP)

Iran has more enriched uranium than it needs for its research and would be willing to discuss the “surplus” with Western powers during nuclear talks next week, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday. Larijani said Iran is open to discussions about what to do with the 20 percent enriched uranium that it doesn’t need. Iran has reported to the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency that it has turned half of its 20 percent enriched uranium into a powder form that cannot easily be used to make weapons-grade fuel. “We have some surplus, you know, the amount that we don’t need. But over that we can have some discussions,” he said in Farsi, through his English translator. A key concession sought by Western powers in negotiations is for Iran to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent. Larijani said Iran produced the enriched urani-
um itself because the International Atomic Energy Agency would not provide it and insisted it needs the material only for research and isotopes for medical treatments, not for nuclear weapons. He indicated a willingness to negotiate on that, too. “Through the process of negotiations, yes, things can be said and they can discuss this matter,” he said. The talks on Iran’s nuclear program will be held next week with the ﬁve permanent U.N. Security Council members — the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France — plus Germany, collectively known as the P5+1. The U.S. and its allies accuse Iran of using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to develop nuclear weapons, and the P5+1 want Tehran to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent, a grade that is only a technical step away from the level used to arm nuclear warheads. It then wants the 20-percent stockpile transferred out of the country. JOHN HEILPRIN (AP)

The Chatty Catholic Pope Francis’ candor has at times caused trouble at the Vatican Vatican City Pope Francis has grabbed headlines with his off-the-cuff homilies, crowd-pleasing one-liners and lengthy interviews during which he has pontiﬁcated on everything from the church’s “obsession” with rules to how he won’t judge gays. But his candor has gotten him into some trouble, and the Vatican has gone into damage-control mode to clarify, correct or put his comments into context. Here’s a look at some of Francis’ more eyebrow-raising comments and the efforts by the Vatican’s spin doctors to address them. Did Francis really consider turning down the job?
In an interview with the Rome daily La Repubblica, editor Eugenio Scalfari quoted the pope as saying he was “seized by a great anxiety” after his election and asked the cardinals to give him a few minutes time to think things over. “To make it go away and relax, I closed my eyes and made every thought disappear, even the thought of refusing to accept the position, as the liturgical procedure allows,” he was quoted as saying. “At a certain point, I was ﬁlled with a great light. It lasted a moment, but to me it seemed very long. Then the light faded, I got up suddenly and walked into the room where the cardinals were waiting.” He said he then signed the acceptance form and went out on the balcony to be introduced as Pope Francis. But the Rev. Thomas Rosica,

Pope Francis has been met with mixed reactions regarding his off-the-cuff remarks.
who helps with Vatican media relations, said the purported “mystical” experience recounted by Repubblica didn’t happen, though Francis has said previously and in public that “I didn’t want to be pope.” Can atheists be saved?
In Francis’ daily 7 a.m. Mass on May 22, he caused no shortage of confusion when he suggested that even atheists could ﬁnd salvation. According to church teaching, the Catholic Church holds the “fullness of the means of salvation” — a message that has long been taken to mean that only Catholics can ﬁnd salvation. But in his homily, Francis said: “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!” Rosica issued an “explanatory note” a few days later. He noted that church teaching also holds that “those who through no fault of their own” don’t know about Jesus but seek God and try to do his will can also attain eternal salvation.”
The Vicar of Christ said what?
Sometimes, Francis’ one-liners don’t warrant Vatican clarification, but they’re worth repeating simply because they came from the lips of the Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church. For example, the pope has urged nuns and sisters to be like joyful mothers to the church and not like “old maids.” “It makes me sad when I ﬁnd sisters who aren’t joyful,” he lamented during his Oct. 4 visit to a convent in Assisi, Italy. “They might smile, but with just a smile they could be ﬂight attendants!” Given Francis’ wry sense of humor and willingness to ditch speeches prepared for him, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said he wants the faithful to know the difference between a pontiﬁcal joke and an encyclical, a clever quip and infallible teaching. “There are different genres of expression, some are magisterial and official, others are more pastoral,” Lombardi said. “They have a different doctrinal value.” NICOLE WINFIELD (AP)
Details (in) Matter: Should the Higgs boson actually be the Higgs
Boson? Physicists at the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics in Kolkata, India, think so, according to several reports. “Boson,” which refers to a category of elementary particle, was named after physicist Satyendra Nath Bose, who died in 1974. Opponents of the capitalization of “boson” maintain the breakthrough discovery of the Higgs boson has little to do with Bose’s work. Francois Englert and Peter Higgs won a Nobel Prize for their research on the particle Tuesday. (E XPRESS)

Metro’s Unsafe Stations Brookland tops list of most dangerous stops in the system Washington Metro put out a list of its most dangerous rail stations, as officials said crime in the transit system is up nearly 10 percent. Brookland tops the list with 44 crimes from January through August of this year. Ofﬁcials said the rise in crime on the rail system’s 106 miles of tracks and 86 stations is being driven by an increase in thefts of cellphones, electronic devices and bicycles. Nearly 60 percent of the

crime in the Metro system involves the theft of a cellphone or bike. The report said bicycle thefts are up by 50 percent this year. Metro has also started to more closely monitor reports of sexual harassment on its system after riders complained that it wasn’t taking such allegations seriously. In 2013, there have been 71 reports of sexual harassment, the agency said. Of those, 10 are being “actively investigated,” police said, and in the rest, either the victim didn’t want to pursue a formal report, no crime was committed or the victim wanted to remain anonymous, according to the report.

However, investigators were unable to substantiate those claims. (THE WASHINGTON POST) LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA.
Local Billionaire Involved In Fatal Va. Car Accident Jacqueline Badger Mars, the billionaire co-owner of Mars Inc., was driving the SUV that was involved in a fatal two-vehicle crash in Loudoun County on Friday, the county sheriff’s office confirmed. The crash occurred at about 2:30 p.m. on Route 50 near Briar Patch Lane in the Aldie area when, “for unknown reasons,” Mars’ SUV crossed the center line and struck a minivan. An 86-year-old woman in the minivan died at the scene. (T WP)
Use of Force The vast majority of big-city police agencies — including in D.C. — prohibit or strictly limit their officers from shooting at moving vehicles. But it’s unclear whether the Capitol Police or Secret Service violated their policies during the chase or the shooting. The shooting is being investigated by the D.C. police department’s Internal Affairs Division, and the Secret Service and Capitol Police will determine whether officers followed their departments’ use-of-force policies. The U.S. attorney’s office will decide whether the agents broke any laws, a D.C. police spokeswoman said. (T WP)

Haunted House Horrifies Some Neighbors in Md.

Part of this year’s plan: an 18-foot-tall witch and a giant spider crawling down the house. But not all of Kerr’s neighbors look forward to the annual ﬁvenight event, which they say is neither trick nor treat but a big, fat hassle, with trafﬁc on their narrow streets and general disruption caused by the estimated 500 visitors a night.

Md. Suburbs, D.C. Aim to Up Minimum Wage If efforts succeed, 3 jurisdictions would $88K ensure rate of $11.50 Washington The minimum wage for nearly half the Washington metropolitan region would jump 40 to 60 percent over the next three years under a rare effort announced Wednesday by D.C. and Maryland officials to
work together to pass similar, if not identical, minimum wage increases by the end of the year. If the triad of legislative efforts succeeds, it would ensure an hourly salary of $11.50 for residents of D.C. and Montgomery and Prince George’s counties by 2016. Combined, that would give 2.5 million people in the capital region the country’s highest minimum wage. Regionally, however, the plan threatens to exacerbate an already

stark divide with Virginia, where lawmakers show no sign of raising the minimum wage above the federal rate of $7.25 — a wage that
Congress set six years ago. By coordinating with Montgomery and Prince George’s, D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said proponents in all three locales would boost their chances for success. “We are standing together because, so often, an issue like minimum wage is argued divisively – that one jurisdiction is going to be at a competitive disadvantage with other jurisdictions,” he said.

A Capitol Confrontation As funds dwindle, D.C. leaders seek to exempt city from shutdown
city’s longstanding gripes about its treatment at the hands of Congress. It has placed leaders of the overwhelmingly Democratic city at odds with national leaders who have generally supported local priorities but have on occasion sacriﬁced the city’s interests in national political ﬁghts.
“We’re just asking to spend our own money — our own money, not the federal money.” — M AYOR V INCENT GR AY, DURING A HEATED EXCHANGE WITH SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF., WHO DEFENDED THE POSITION AGAINST A STANDALONE D.C. FUNDING BILL EVAN VUCCI (AP)
An unusual confrontation took place on the U.S. Capitol steps Wednesday when District Mayor Vincent Gray crashed a news conference held by Senate Democrats and asked Majority Leader Harry Reid to exempt the city from the ongoing shutdown. “Sir, we are not a department of the government,” Gray told Reid moments after the mayor concluded his own news event about 50 yards from where Reid held one. “We’re simply trying to be able to spend our own money.” Reid responded: “I’m on your side, don’t screw it up, OK? Don’t screw it up.” The exchange was bookended by emphatic, sometimes emotional statements from Gray arguing for the city’s right to spend its $6 billion a year in locally raised tax revenue without congressional say-so. The shutdown has placed the embattled mayor, whose 2010 campaign remains under federal investigation, in a new light as he battles to keep the city government in business — including with his fellow Democrats. The intraparty tension comes after the Republican-controlled House voted last week to pass a bill allowing the District to use its locally raised tax funds to maintain operations until Dec. 15. But Democrats, including Reid and President Barack Obama, have held fast in opposition to piecemeal funding bills, saying Republicans must come to a deal to fund the entire government, not just favored segments. The Democrats’ posture against a standalone D.C. funding bill has added a new dimension to the
Mayor Vincent Gray, left, confronts Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid during a news conference Wednesday.
The Effect on D.C. Metro Mayor Vincent Gray said D.C. was forced to miss a $74 million payment to Metro, part of Metro’s $1.6 billion annual operating budget. Some worry that could force Metro to cut back service. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel wrote Tuesday that there is no “immediate issue” but said Metro is “closely monitoring” the situation. Already, Metro has switched to six-car trains from eight-car trains because ridership has dropped roughly 20 percent amid the federal furloughs.
$ Schools The shutdown could interrupt the city’s scheduled Oct. 29 payment to D.C.’s 60 charter schools, “many of which will be unable to absorb this blow to their finances,” Gray said.
Health And Taxes Last week, health officials said that the city would not make $89 million in Medicaid-related payments. The city’s tax office said Monday that refunds would cease during the shutdown.
All city employees have stayed at work and most residents have seen no change in day-to-day operations of city government, but a variety of District government payments have been suspended to conserve cash.
Citing the ongoing government shutdown, Standard & Poor’s has cut its rating for D.C.’s “Institutional Framework” from “very strong” to “strong.” D.C.’s credit rating remains unchanged. (T WP)
Wait, Why Is D.C. in Trouble?
The Worst Yet, Here
The District government is affected by federal shutdowns because, unlike states, Congress appropriates its budget. Those appropriations — even of locally generated tax revenue — have stopped.
The federal shutdown is now the longest the city has faced. A 1995 shutdown affected D.C. for five days, and the city was exempted from a 21-day shutdown that lasted into January 1996. (T WP)
The last serious shutdown threat, for instance, was averted in April 2011 when Obama agreed to ban the use of District government funds on abortions for low-income women as part of a deal with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. During the current shutdown, the District government has tapped a $144 million contingency cash reserve fund to keep its 32,000 employees on the job since the federal shutdown took effect Oct. 1. But the city has frozen many of its outgoing payments in order to conserve the contingency account, which is expected to be exhausted sometime next week. At their news conference on the Capitol grounds Wednesday, Gray and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton highlighted the partisan contradictions while detailing the drastic effect of the cash crunch on the city government. “Democrats, at this critical moment, have abandoned their long-held principles,” Norton said, calling it “shameful … to hold the city’s local funds hostage to make a federal point.” MIK E DeB ONI S A ND A ARON C.

of the Conchords, Garfunkel and Oates (actresses Micucci and Lindhome) write and perform silly, occasionally dirty folk songs with titles like “Pregnant Women are Smug,” “This Party Took a Turn for the Douche” and “My Apartment’s Very Clean Without You.” WHO? You may know Lindhome from
supporting roles in “Gilmore Girls,” Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” and this week’s “New Girl.” Micucci has appeared on “Raising Hope” and “The Big Bang Theory.” SONG LYRIC: “Pregnant women are smug/ Everyone knows it, nobody says it/ Because they’re pregnant/ This zen world you’re enjoying/ Makes you really annoying.” SEE MORE: IFC just ordered 10 episodes of “Garfunkel and Oates,” a scripted series due to debut in 2014.

Tig Notaro would have brought the Bentzen Ball back sooner, but life got in the way. Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 “and my life just fell apart drastically,” she says. Then, she released a comedy album, “Live,” addressing her illness, and her fame skyrocketed. Her cancer is in remission now, and while she’s busier than ever — with her podcast, “Professor Blastoff,” a memoir and two different documentaries in the works — she wanted to bring back the event she fondly calls “comedy camp, because it was really a magical weekend.” Unlike other festivals, where comedians might see one another only during shows, Notaro wanted to make the Bentzen Ball feel like a vacation for the performers. “We’ve scheduled activities for the comedians to do from the time they get up until they go to sleep so they can enjoy the city together,” she says. The camaraderie also encourages collaborations between comics. “Comedians will be popping up at other shows,” she says. “I think it’s definitely safe to say you’ll see me pop up at other shows.” Notaro headlines opening night at 9:30 Club, Thu. at 7 p.m., $35, and is roving all over.

If you see an unusually long line of awkward-looking people gliding around D.C. on Segways this weekend, the situation may be even funnier than it looks. The Bentzen Ball — the Tig Notaro-curated comedy festival organized by Washington website Brightest Young Things — is returning for its second run after a three-year hiatus. And just like at the 2009 edition of the laugh fest, Notaro has again organized a Segway tour for the comics. “It was ridiculous fun,” Notaro says of the first outing. “Nonstop laughter and a little bit of danger.” More than 30 performers — including Notaro, Wyatt Cenac, Sara Schaefer, “The Office’s” Kate Flannery and NPR’s Ira Glass — will stage stand-up, improv and musical comedy shows at five D.C. venues this weekend. Here’s a guide to the laughs. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)
WHO? He opened for Aziz Ansari at Constitution Hall in March, co-hosts the podcast “The Champs” with Neal Brennan, is a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately” and has a memoir — “Kasher in the Rye” — that’s equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking. DID YOU KNOW? Both of Kasher’s parents are deaf. Also, as he details in his memoir, he was addicted to drugs, committed crimes and was committed to a mental hospital all before his Sweet 16. TWEET: “To me, love is a bunch of people wishing me a happy birthday based on an automated reminder from Facebook.” MORE: Stream Kasher’s Netflix standup special, “Live in Oakland,” then see him do a completely different batch of material in D.C.
Kasher does stand-up at Sphinx Club on Friday at 10 p.m., $20-$25, and Lincoln Theatre on Saturday at 6 p.m., $20.

Despite the phonetic similarity, the Bentzen Ball is not held to fete “Super High Me” comedian Doug Benson. “Every time I tell people I’m doing the Bentzen Ball, they can’t hear the spelling, so they think it’s a ball in my honor,” he says in an email. (FYI: The festival is named after a Danish man who supposedly laughed himself to death while watching the film “A Fish Called Wanda.”) Given Benson’s tireless work ethic, though, comedy’s No. 1 stoner might as well have his own festival. He even has an idea for one: “The Benson Ball would take place in an amusement park and I’d tell everybody jokes while they wait in line for the rides.” Benson is always on the road, he hosts four guestheavy podcasts — including “Doug Loves Movies,” the movie trivia show he’ll stage in D.C. Friday, he releases a stand-up album every year and he just started a YouTube series, “Getting Doug With High.” “Every guest is required to smoke [weed] on the show,” he says. “Live, for the world, or a few thousand viewers, to see.” Like his podcasts, the Web show is another chance for Benson to hang out with his comedy friends — something he’s looking forward to doing in D.C. “I’d rather see my friends than the Lincoln Memorial,” he says. “It’s a swell memorial … but I’m not gonna play chess on the steps like those ‘X-Men’ weirdos.” Benson does stand-up at 9:30 Club, Thu. at 7 p.m., $25, and hosts “Doug Loves Movies” at Sphinx Club, Fri. at 7 p.m., $20-$25.
Saturday at 5 p.m., aggressive Los Angelesbased comic Brody Stevens is hosting a happy-hour comedy show at The Howard Theatre starring local comics. (The show is free to anyone with a Bentzen Ball ticket stub, $5 otherwise.) One of the hallmarks of the festival is its focus on D.C. comedians, who are part of nearly every show around town. “It’s good to expose the locals,” says Notaro, who handpicked the festival lineup. Here are a few of Bentzen’s funniest D.C.-area dwellers:

I Love You to Death In “Romeo & Juliet,” opening Friday, Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth play the doomed teenagers in love. They’re in pretty good company, judging by the other actors who’ve played the pair. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes For Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 adaptation “Romeo + Juliet,” these two took the story to the gritty, modern streets of Verona. They also took it underwater in one sexy, sweet swimming pool scene.
2 Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey Franco Zeffirelli’s lush 1968 R&J is considered one of the best, both by film scholars and by high-school students whose teachers don’t move fast enough to cover up the shot of a topless Hussey.
3 Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer Shearer, as Juliet in the 1936 George Cukor-directed version, was the first actress to get an Oscar nomination for a Shakespearean role. Possibly because the 34-year-old had to play 13 (and the guy playing her Romeo was 43).
4 Paul Panzer and Florence Lawrence Their turn on the silver screen was a silent one (the film came out in 1908). We assume director J. Stuart Blackton cut Shakespeare’s text with a machete, as the film is only 10 minutes long.
5 James McAvoy and Emily Blunt As the voices of gnomes from warring gardens in 2011’s animated “Gnomeo & Juliet,” this duo managed to make it through the ending credits alive.

A nnual fees for communit ysupported art programs can range from $30 to a few thousand dollars. “I’ve been long interested in different types of models that artists are using to support themselves,” says exhibit curator Abigail Satinsky, of Chicago arts organization Threewalls, whose CSA program starts at $400 a year for six pieces, mailed to your door. Subscription-based programs create a consistent funding stream for artists, and help art lovers venture into the world of collecting at a less daunting price point, says Eleanor Hanson Wise of The Present Group, an arts think tank in Oakland, Calif., which has several pieces in the show. The Present Group’s pilot program, which ended in 2012, cost subscribers $150 a year for three or four pieces. “It’s fairly under-the-radar,” Wise says of the model. “But it’s definitely growing in popularity.” ERIN BYL ANDER (FOR E XPRESS)

INDIES & ARTIES
Featured Artist: Eric Fleischauer ‘UNIVERSAL PARAMOUNT,’ 2010: Eric Fleischauer (ericfleischauer .com) created the digital image print — a critique of media culture — in 2010 for Satinsky’s first community-supported art collection for Threewalls in Chicago. Fleischauer says his piece got a lot of exposure from that, ending up in the collection of the city’s Museum of Contemporary Photography. “You don’t always know what you’re going to get,” the Chicago-based artist says of the subscription model. “It’s like a goody bag.”
EARTH-KILN-BAY-KILNBAY, 2007: Presley Martin’s (presleymartin.com) piece for The Present Group, based in Oakland, Calif., was part sculpture, part performance piece. In the spring of 2007, Martin discovered a bunch of weathered bricks washed up on a Berkeley, Calif., beach. He collected, glazed and fired them in his studio, then arranged them on the beach again. He allowed the tide to move them along the shore naturally before collecting them again. “I was interested in inserting myself in the natural process that was happening,” Martin says.
Featured Artist: Steve Lambert ‘I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS,’ 2011: Everyone has stuff they don’t need but can’t bring themselves to throw away. That’s the idea behind Beacon, N.Y.based artist Steve Lambert’s (visitsteve.com) edition for The Present Group of 80 birch boxes and four cardstock hang-tags silkscreened with the text “I want you to have this,” intended for odd, unwanted items. “It’s like your own mini thrift store,” Lambert says. Lambert has tried art subscription programs himself. “I have some stuff I really like and some I don’t know what to do with.”

Opens Thu. Spooky Movie Festival: We all have fond memories of Halloweens spent dressed as Bobcat Goldthwait. OK, no we don’t. Regardless of his tenuous connection to the holiday, he’s kicking off the Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival on Thursday with a screening of his “Willow Creek,” left, about a notso-nice Bigfoot, and a Q&A. Also on offer: 40-plus scary flicks from the festival circuit, like the Australian “100 Bloody Acres.” Chop-chop, mate!

Van Gogh’s Do-Overs The Phillips presents a glimpse into the Dutch painter’s habit of repeating himself Exhibits Erase your image of Vincent Van Gogh as a mad genius. OK, so maybe he did cut off part of his left ear and give it to a prostitute.
But when it came to painting, the 19th-century Dutch artist was often thoughtful and methodical, says Eliza Rathbone, chief curator at The Phillips Collection. “He wasn’t always painting in a mad state of passion or inspiration,” she says. “Sometimes he painted the same subject again and again.” These works are the subject of a new exhibit at The Phillips, “Van Gogh Repetitions.” Different ver-
sions of the same landscape or portrait will be displayed side by side, to illustrate how Van Gogh refined his vision over time. The repetitions let him experiment with color, composition and brush strokes, but they did not improve his profit margin. “Van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime,” Rathbone says. Among the images are landscapes Van Gogh painted during excursions from the asylum where
he was a patient and 10 portraits of one of his doctors. But don’t let the subjects distract you from the art itself, Rathbone says. “One of the things that intrigues people about Van Gogh is his life, but his work alone makes him great,” she says. SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS) Phillips Collection, 1600 21st St. NW; Sat. through Jan. 26, $12; 202-387-2151, phillipscollection.org. (Dupont Circle)
Spot the Differences
LEFT: THE CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART; RIGHT: THE PHILLIPS COLLECTION
In 1889, Van Gogh painted “The Large Plane Trees,” left, from an easel set up outdoors in the French village of Saint-Remy-de-Provence. About a month later, he painted a second version of the landscape, titled “The Road Menders,” right, from his studio inside the Asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole.
The farthest tree has much wavier lines in the second painting than it does in the first. “It has a much more expressionistic kind of contour to it than the original tree,” says Eliza Rathbone, chief curator at The Phillips Collection. “You feel the invention and the desire to make the trees come even more alive.”
The bright yellow foliage and crystalline sky in the second painting show that Van Gogh traded his original, naturalistic color scheme for a heightened palette. “He’s left that sense of the moment to make something more timeless, more invented, more free,” Rathbone says.
The road-paving blocks on the right of each painting become more geometric and inert in their second iteration, providing a clearer foil to the gnarly, lively trees.
The green door at the center of the second painting is more prominent than it is in the first, and Van Gogh plays up other instances of green and red throughout the painting. “He was fascinated by color theory,” Rathbone says.
The two people in the painting’s center are barely visible in the first version of the landscape. In his later version, Van Gogh makes it clear they are workers mending the road. He also adds a worker to the group on the right, bringing manual labor — one of his favorite themes — to the fore.
The ruddy colors on the first painting come, in part, from the canvas itself — a piece of red fabric with a diamond pattern. Van Gogh ran through canvases as quickly as his brother Theo could send them, Rathbone says, and he often painted on whatever was available.

WHO THE HECK IS ...
Eleven years ago, Detroitbased singer Vienna Teng left her cushy job as a software engineer at Cisco Systems in California to pursue a career in music. Since then, she’s recorded ﬁve albums, including her newest, “Aims.”
Grassroots Growing: After the release of her 2002 debut, “Waking Hour,” Teng went from playing coffeehouses to appearances on NPR’s “Weekend Edition” and “Late Show with David Letterman” in less than a year. On “Aims,” Teng, usually accompanied by simple piano, ventures into new territory, using guitar and percussion loops. Music First: Teng wrote the music for the songs on “Aims” sometimes months before writing lyrics. “I’ve never been more excited or grateful to be a musician, and it’s exactly because music’s role in my life is so expansive now, so adventurous,” she says. For the first time, Teng also co-produced the album with Cason Cooley, who has worked with rising indie stars Derek Webb and Katie Herzig. Grad School Intermission: Teng took a break from music to attend grad school at the University of Michigan in 2011. Her focus — business and environmental studies — was a longtime interest: She donated proceeds from her second album to the advocacy group the Union of Concerned Scientists.

EAT THEIR WORDS Exercising poetic license, we send 5 famous authors to dinner in D.C.
In an acclaimed series of crime novels, George Pelecanos — the D.C.-born author who’s also written for HBO’s “The Wire” — sends ex-cop-turned-private investigator Derek Strange on assignment throughout the District. With his fictional office in Petworth, Strange served as the inspiration for Petworth Citizen (829 Upshur St. NW), a new literarythemed restaurant from Paul Ruppert, co-owner of Room 11 and The Passenger. “I wanted to open a bar that Derek Strange would hang out at,” Ruppert says. “The interior is very noir and a little mysterious.” With a leave-one-takeone library equipped for readings and book clubs and a kitchen helmed by Makoto Hamamura of City Zen, Petworth Citizen is fostering a well-read and well-fed D.C. Its opening also inspired us to fantasize about the places other notable literary figures would have frequented had they lived in the area. Our educated guesses follow. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

“The Catcher in the Rye” — the English 101 standard about an angsty teen expelled from prep school — brought Salinger great success and adoration, much to his dismay: The author ordered the removal of his picture from the book jacket and requested that fan mail be burned. Such hostility pairs well with a stiff drink, which the new speakeasy beneath Doi Moi would serve Salinger in anonymity. “There are tons of nooks and crannies he could disappear into,” says bar director Adam Bernbach. “Plus, none of the staff are products of prep schools, to my knowledge.”
“Papa” was never one to turn down a drink. “He was a bon vivant and gravitated toward the finer things,” says Philip Greene, a local Hemingway historian and author of “To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion.” “He was a foodie before people called them foodies.” A man with such elevated tastes would appreciate Mockingbird Hill, a new addition to Shaw from mixologist Derek Brown that serves ham and sherry exclusively. “Sherry is unlike any other alcohol,” Brown says of the dry fortified wine originating in Spain. “It’s connected to passionate characters.”
Though she penned nearly 18,000 poems, the 19th-century wordsmith was notoriously reticent. Painfully withdrawn and reclusive, Dickinson spent most of her time alone. But a girl’s gotta eat. Because it’s unlikely she’d ever venture outside for a meal, we imagine Dickinson would be a fan of Scratch D.C., a dinner delivery program that drops prepared ingredients at your door. Directions are easy and containers are clearly marked. “It’s designed to be foolproof,” founder Ryan Hansan says. “But if she ever needed to talk to us, she could call us on her phone that didn’t exist.”

With the release of his Pulitzer Prizewinning novel “The Grapes of Wrath,” which shed a sympathetic light on field hands during the Great Depression, Steinbeck solidified himself as a friend of the farmer. With a majority of its produce plucked directly from its own 156-acre, familyoperated farm in Poolesville, Md., Beuchert’s Saloon seems a natural choice.

You won’t find green eggs and ham on the menu at this zany Dupont Circle bar from Mr. Yogato owner Steve Davis.

Baby Wale’s chef, Tom Power, is also the chef at Corduroy next door.
Break the Pattern Corduroy’s new sister, Baby Wale, is cut from a different cloth Tom Power, chef of the sleek Corduroy, hoped to call his new casual concept Velour. That was before a film about a porn star, “Meet Monica Velour,” hit screens and Power decided against that association. His alternate choice was Herringbone. Then a lawyer representing a group of fabricthemed restaurants in Southern California sent Power a stop sign. So Baby Wale it is. The label, which lets Power keep his material theme, pertains to the smallest weave of corduroy and is meant to be “the opposite of Corduroy.” Just a single sheet of paper, the menu covers a lot of turf. Anyone who has had a taste of Power’s résumé will recognize a number of dishes, including lumpia, the Filipino equivalent of spring rolls.

Soups get the party started, and every $7 bowl I’ve sampled is a score. There are only a few true main dishes. One is a chicken for two that’s roasted to order and requires 45 minutes to get to the table. The 3-pounder makes fabulous eating, both in the restaurant and at home at midnight.

Cuban, by Way Of New York After James Lambert tried his first meal at Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine during a visit to Manhattan in 2011, the D.C. resident spent the rest of the day ordering a meal at each of the chain’s remaining five locations on the island. “I’d never had anything like it in D.C.,” says the former government employee and — since it opened last week in Dupont — the owner of the first Sophie’s franchise (1134 19th St. NW) to exist outside of New York. Started in 1997 by a motherdaughter duo from Peru, Sophie’s has earned accolades for its pernil (roasted pork), which can be served over rice ($10) or on a traditional Cuban sandwich with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mayonnaise and mustard ($8). Of the various hurdles Lambert encountered in bringing the Manhattan institution to D.C., perhaps the biggest was recreating its signature Cuban bread. After nearly a month of trial and error working with local bakers, Sophie’s executive chef signed off on a dense-yet-fluffy version produced by Metropolitan Baking Co. in Northeast D.C.

ALEXA MEADE AND SHEILA VAND have collaborated on a short film called â€œMilk: What Will You Make of Me,â€? now showing at Artisphere. Meade paints on Vandâ€™s body and then dunks her in milk; as the paint fades away, Vand continually changes her pose, creating a portrait that is constantly changing. And presumably getting softer skin with every shot.

Nene Journeys Back Home Forward plays host as Wizards travel to Brazil for exhibition
Justin Verlander is riding a 22-inning postseason scoreless streak vs. the A’s.
Verlander On Mound For Game 5
They were just shoes, but they represented so much more to young Maybyner Rodney Hilario. A gift from the coach who molded the man now known as Nene into a basketball player, those winecolored Nike high-tops were with him as he developed the passion for a game that would take him from the city of Sao Carlos, Brazil, to his current job as a big man with the Washington Wizards.
Wearing the sneakers until they were tattered and held together with duct tape, Nene stood out at school, in church or when he ran to a friend’s house to watch NBA games on cable TV. And of course, Nene kept them on when he was learning the game at the gym of a tiny basketball school in his hometown. The night before his Saturday afternoon games, Nene would place those shoes next to his pillow and close his eyes in a futile attempt at sleep. Most of the time, he would give up before sunrise and stare at the ceiling, imagining how well he would perform. “I couldn’t wait,” Nene said. “So excited.” Heading into his 12th NBA season, Nene no longer approaches games with the same nervous anticipation. But the ﬁrst Brazilian to play in the NBA said he might “freak out” when his Wizards take

on the Chicago Bulls on Saturday in the ﬁrst NBA exhibition game in his native country. The Wizards took a ﬂight to Rio de Janeiro after their 111-106 overtime loss to the Brooklyn Nets at Verizon Center on Tuesday night. Nene is playing the role of host and ambassador on a trip intended to help the NBA establish more traction in a nation that will soon be the center
of the global sports scene with the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics. Basketball was neither Nene’s first sport (he began practicing judo at age 3) nor his ﬁrst love (like most in his country, he fell hard for soccer). But he started playing the sport at age 10 after a coach at a local recreational center noticed how Nene was too agile and powerful for handball and told him
— NENE , ON THE SNOW HE ENCOUNTERED AFTER LEAVING BRAZIL FOR CLEVELAND,
that he should consider putting a ball in a hoop. “He said, ‘I think you’re in wrong sport. Too simple for you.’ That is why I started playing basketball,” Nene said. This week, Nene will have a chance to reconnect with many of the people who helped him make a name for himself in a place known more for producing soccer stars. “To be Brazilian and to be a pro NBA athlete for all these years, you have to think about all the sacriﬁces, all the blessing I have,” said Nene, 31. “It’s really hard to think about. For sure it’s going to be emotional, because nothing in my life came easy. It was always the hard way.”

Redskins owner Dan Snyder defended the team’s controversial name in a letter to fans that was released Wednesday.
Snyder States His Case Redskins owner calls team name ‘badge of honor’ in letter to fans Redskins Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder says respect goes both ways when it comes to the debate over the team’s nickname. The man who ultimately gets to decide whether the name stays or goes offered his thoughts on the matter Wednesday in a letter to season-ticket holders, the ﬁrst time he has addressed at length the change-the-name campaign that has picked up momentum this year. “I’ve listened carefully to the commentary and perspectives on all sides, and I respect the feelings of those who are offended by the team name,” the letter states. “But I hope such individuals also try to respect what the name means, not
only for all of us in the extended Washington Redskins family, but among Native Americans too.” The letter recalls Snyder’s experience when he attended his ﬁrst Redskins game at age 6 and cites polls and anecdotal evidence that indicate support for the name from Native Americans. It states that the original Boston Redskins had a Native American coach before the franchise relocated to Washington, though research shows that it is unclear whether William “Lone Star” Dietz was an Indian or whether he stole the identity of a missing man from the Oglala Sioux tribe. “The name was never a label,” Snyder’s letter states. “It was, and continues to be, a badge of honor.” Although groups have been calling for a name change for decades, events this year have put the Redskins on the defensive like never before. Snyder has hired Lanny Davis, a consultant in the Clinton
“After 81 years, the team name ‘Redskins’ continues to hold the memories and meaning of where we came from, who we are, and who we want to be in the years to come.” — REDSK IN S OW NER DA N SN Y DER, IN A LETTER TO SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS
White House who specializes in managing political crises, as an adviser on the matter. The letter released Wednesday shows more sensitivity than the owner’s last on-the-record comment on the topic, when he told USA Today in May: “We’ll never change the name. It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)
Goodell Weighs In on Name Change: Asked directly whether the Redskins should change their name, Roger Goodell said the NFL needs to “make sure we’re doing what’s right.” Speaking at the conclusion of the league’s fall meetings Tuesday, the commissioner noted that he grew up in the Washington area rooting for the city’s football team and “by no means … have I ever considered it derogatory as a fan, and I think that’s how Redskins fans would look at it.” (AP)

Caps Ready to Test New Pickup Urbom to make his Washington debut tonight vs. Carolina Capitals FOUR MORE YEARS
Girardi Inks Deal Manager Joe Girardi signed a fouryear contract Wednesday to stay with the New York Yankees through 2017. The Yankees missed the playoffs for the second time since 1992, but Girardi kept them in the chase until late September despite injuries to Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson. (AP)
When defensive prospect Alexander Urbom was placed on waivers by the New Jersey Devils last week, the Capitals pounced on the opportunity to claim him. Capitals coach Adam Oates, who was vaguely familiar with the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Swede from his time as an assistant coach in New Jersey, knew that his team was getting a player with raw potential. Not wanting to “throw him to
7 P.M. Today | CSN
the wolves” after just one day of practice, Oates opted to sit Urbom out of Washington’s 2-1 loss to Dallas on Saturday. Yet after three days of practice, Oates has decided that Urbom is acclimated enough to contribute. The defenseman will make his team debut tonight when the Capitals open a ﬁve-game homestand against the Hurricanes. “He’s had some good practices, so it’s time to give him a look,” Oates said.
Meanwhile … Nicklas Backstrom became a father early Tuesday when his girlfriend, Liza Berg, gave birth to the couple’s first child, a baby girl named Haley. “It was probably the best moment of my life so far,” the Capitals center said after Wednesday’s practice. A.V.
The rangy Urbom, New Jersey’s third-round draft pick in 2009, has appeared in 14 career NHL games, averaging just over 13 minutes of ice time. His defensive partner —
either Steven Oleksy or Connor Carrick — has yet to be determined. Urbom is described by scouting reports as a positionally sound, but green, shutdown defenseman with mobility. His transition from the Devils to the Capitals was made easier by his familiarity with Oates and his system, which Oates cultivated during his two years in New Jersey. Urbom, however, is not using that as any sort of crutch as he prepares for his ﬁrst game in a Capitals uniform. “It makes you more comfortable, of course,” Urbom said. “But I’ve still got to play my game.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

A Cinematic Chiller
Marisha Pessl weaves a dark story about movies, death and family in ‘Night Film’
ing. I spent months writing and creating her back story. You’ve written two books in a row with a father-daughter focus. Is that on purpose?
It’s totally unconscious. It’s all about finding my own bliss and digging into what’s mysterious to me.
Sadcom Central Many of CBS’ new sitcoms are really sadcoms. They are about sad people with sad lives, only instead of crying, viewers are supposed to laugh at their sorrows. “We Are Men” (8:30 p.m., Mon.) should be titled “We Are Men Who Are Divorced or Were Left Standing at the Altar and Are Now Full of Regret and Bile.” In “The Millers” (8:30 p.m., Thu.), Will Arnett plays newly divorced Nathan, who conceals his split from By Marc his bickering parents. Of Silver course they find out and are inspired to end their own unhappy union. Manipulative mom moves in with Nathan and trims his toenails while he sleeps. Bumbling dad moves in with Nathan’s sister and puts metal dishes in the microwave. Tragedy ensues. Saddest of all is “Mom” (9:30 p.m., Mon.). Titular Christy is a single mother of two, a recovering alcoholic and a high school dropout who dreams futilely of becoming a psychologist. Her mother is an alcoholic and a nymphomaniac. Her teen daughter is newly pregnant. Effervescent Anna Faris, above right, as “Mom” and imperious Allison Janney as her mom cannot mitigate the veil of sadness that cloaks this show. Dear CBS, I’d like to pitch a sitcom: “Sufferin’ with Job.” Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse
With her 2004 debut, “Special Topics in Calamity Physics,” novelist Marisha Pessl became a literary “it” girl both for her intricate plotting and compelling-yet-flawed characters, namely, a controlling father and his precocious high-school-age daughter. Her second book, “Night Film” ($28, Random House), also dips into family relationships, in this case via a dark tale about a reclusive horror movie director, his recently dead daughter and the washedup reporter following their story. Pessl reads from the book at Politics and Prose on Friday. Why write a book about making horror movies?
I love scary movies, and I love the idea of someone being a master of the arts. But I also conceived “Night Film” as a family saga in a way, not so much as something about film. It’s about the stories we tell ourselves and how crucial they are to how we organize our lives. For “Night Film,” I heard you conceived of full plots for the movies your main character, Stanislas
“When I ﬁnish a novel, I feel there’s nothing else creative I need from it. I don’t feel ownership, so I love the idea of someone making a movie of it.”

I didn’t want to cut corners if I was contending that Cordova was a master filmmaker with terrifying underground films. That’s my favorite part of my job, being that creator.
like quality to it. I was interested in doing an epistolary novel, but I thought a novel in letters was out of date. The ephemera tell a powerful story.
The book has faux New York Times articles, mock snapshots, and there are even a few fake movie trailers on YouTube. Why?
We know from the start of the book that one of the main characters, Cordova’s daughter, Ashley, is dead, yet she still seems like its heroine.
From the outset, the book has had this voyeuristic, scrapbook-
I think she is, because even though she isn’t present, she’s mesmeriz-
This book is so cinematic, and it’s already been optioned for a movie. Any thoughts on what the ﬁlm version of “Night Film” will be like?
When I finish a novel, I feel there’s nothing else creative I need from it. I don’t feel ownership, so I love the idea of someone making a movie of it. There’s even been some “Night Film” fan art, and it’s been interesting to see what people make out of your characters. We live in a culture of appropriation, and it’s exciting that people can collide with the book that way. JENNIFER BARGER (E XPRESS)

Meth Maestro: “Breaking Bad” will live on as an opera. One World Symphony’s artistic director, Sung Jin Hong, says he’s composing “Breaking Bad — Ozymandias,” a mini opera based on the departed AMC drama and Percy Bysshe Shelley’s sonnet “Ozymandias.” “I hope to explore the question that the drama obsessively and hauntingly asked: ‘Are we all breaking bad?’ ” Hong wrote in a blog post. The production will run Jan. 26-27 in New York. (E XPRESS)

‘Glee’ Says Goodbye
If you suffer painful bowel movements, local doctors need your help testing an investigational cream. It is relatively common for adults to experience severe pain during bowel movements when a tear, or fissure, occurs in the skin around the anus. If you’re an adult under 75 years old and this sounds a little too familiar, local doctors need your help with a research study testing an investigational cream for the pain associated with anal fissures.

Other TV series have woven a cast member’s death into an episode honoring them and their character. But “Glee” ( 9 p.m. Thursdays on Fox) has an especially sensitive task. The series will pay tribute tonight to Cory Monteith, who was found dead in a Canadian hotel room in July of an accidental alcohol and drug overdose that ended his long, self-described ﬁght against addiction at age 31. Monteith’s death is especially haunting given the character he played: a handsome Big Man on Campus with a sweet smile and big heart, one whose toughest problems involved dating and chastity or whether to align with glee club outsiders or the in-crowd football team. There’s also the uneasy knowledge that when Lea Michele’s character, Rachel, cries over boyfriend Finn, it mirrors the actress’ grief over losing her off-screen romantic partner. She dedicated her recent Teen Choice Award to Monteith, accepting with tears and wearing a necklace that spelled out “Cory.” Some observers have suggested that the “Glee” episode should
shouldn’t be painful
The death of “Glee’s” Cory Monteith, who played Finn, has been written into the show.
treat Monteith with dignity but not ignore the scourge of addiction that cut short his life — especially on a series that’s regularly delivered life lessons on big topics. “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has not offered detailed plans for the episode but has said that drugs will not be the cause of Finn’s death. Mike O’Malley, who played stepdad Kurt Hummel to Monteith’s Finn, says the episode included “the most emotional scene I’ve ever acted in my entire life” and calls Monteith “a real bright light.” In a Fox promotion for the episode titled “The Quarterback,”
students are seen gathered at an ad hoc memorial display at Finn’s high school locker, while another scene shows a weeping Rachel being comforted by glee club teacher Will (Matthew Morrison). A mournful version of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” performed by Michele is heard on the promo soundtrack. Other songs in the episode include covers of “Seasons of Love” from the Broadway musical “Rent,” James Taylor’s “Fire & Rain,” The Pretenders’ “I’ll Stand by You” and Bruce Springsteen’s “No Surrender.” LYNN ELBER (AP)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You mustn’t take the blame for that which is not your fault, but you may want to step in and do what you can to reverse any resulting damage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You must read all instructions carefully; if you miss a single step, you may have to go back to the drawing board. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You mustn’t take everything at face value; realize that some things are not what they seem, by accident or by design. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can dig beneath the surface and come up with a great deal more information than you had at your fingertips a day ago.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You may accidentally give a rival the advantage for a time, but you can certainly get it back if you apply yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may feel stuck for several reasons — not the least of which is the fact that you are not prepared for every eventuality.
