Within Prison Walls, He’s Known as ‘Puddin’ Man Petr’ Don’t get between a man and his dessert. Trutv.com reported Wednesday that Petr Svacha, 36, had been dining in Zlin, Czech Republic, when he was asked to leave at closing time before finishing his dessert. Svacha returned with a chainsaw, sliced a hole in the door, climbed inside, walked over to his table and grabbed his half-eaten pudding. He was grabbed by a waiter, and the police were called. Svacha faces up to a year in prison. (EXPRESS) HAPPY MEALS

Fool’s Errand or Heroic Stand? Cruz unapologetic after pushing GOP into shutdown fight
JEWEL SAMAD (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
Washington The bipartisan compromise on Wednesday to avoid a financial default and end a 16-day partial government shutdown cast a spotlight on Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, who had precipitated the crises with their demand that President Barack Obama gut his 3-year-old health-care law. Senate Republicans who repeatedly had warned the two about their quixotic move took little pleasure in saying “I-told-you-so.” The ﬁnal deal hardly nicked the health-care law, while the shutdown and near default left the GOP reeling. “Our numbers have gone down, Obamacare’s somehow mysteriously have gone up. And other than that, this has been great,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., with a heavy dose of gallows humor. “The way we’re behaving and the path we’ve taken in the last couple of weeks leads to a marginalized party in
Sen. Ted Cruz’s defiance has been wildly cheered by outside conservative groups.
the eyes of the American people.” Cruz, a freshman who engaged in a 21-hour talkathon and egged on House Republicans for the ﬁght, was unapologetic. “This battle will continue to provide real relief for the millions of Americans who are hurting, who right now still don’t have a voice in the United States Senate,” he said. His defiance has been wildly cheered by outside conservative
groups that have made money on the months-long dispute and the far right ﬂank that hails Cruz and Lee for what they call a principled, courageous stand. But among Senate Republicans, Cruz and Lee are near pariahs, publicly slammed for a tactic that has taken a heavy toll on the GOP’s standing and privately criticized for helping outside groups targeting Republican incumbents before
The Houston Chronicle newspaper’s editorial board endorsed Ted Cruz for Senate in the 2012 general election. But now it’s having second thoughts. “Does anyone else miss Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison?” reads an editorial posted online Tuesday evening. The piece lauds the career of Hutchison, whom Cruz succeeded, but zeroes in on the differences between the two. “Cruz has been part of the problem in specific situations where Hutchison would have been part of the solution.”
next year’s congressional elections. Cruz, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, has seized the headlines and collected nearly $800,000 for his political action committee in the past three months. “I think Ted Cruz and Mike Lee did exactly the job that those of us who helped them get elected” wanted them to do, said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project, one of the ﬁrst conservative organizations to back Cruz last year in his long-shot Senate bid.

Motivation From an App Technology allows users to track sleep, health and chores Washington Ever suspect you do more housework than your spouse? Or that certain tasks at work raise your blood pressure? Maybe you wonder why you’re sneezing more lately, or whether carbs are really what is making you tired after lunch? Turns out, there’s an app or gadget to test all of that. Advancements in wearable body sensors, mobile applications and other gadgets mean that nearly everything we do can be captured, logged and analyzed. And every day, consumers are jumping at the chance to conduct their own experiments — tracking sleep, caffeine intake, kids’ studying habits, household chores, even whether a baby is nursing more frequently on Mom’s left breast versus her right. “I don’t know if I’d use the word ‘obsessed,’ ” said Ernesto Ramirez, a self-tracking devotee. “I think there’s an overall trend toward
Tracking Technology’s Next Steps Public-health advocates and researchers say tracking technology could be used to encourage people to use less gasoline, conserve water or drive slower by giving them real-time feedback on their daily habits. It also could expose causes of medical conditions that baffle doctors. Ernesto Ramirez, a self-tracking devotee, said he thinks the next step will be embedding sensors in nearly everything a person encounters throughout the day and linking that information together. Think of a car that won’t start if you’ve consumed too much alcohol or a light bulb that changes colors when it’s time to go to bed. (AP)
curiosity and proving knowledge of one’s self in the world.” When Tim Davis of Beaver, Pa., weighed in at 318 pounds two years ago, he bought a Fitbit gadget to track his physical activity and the Lose It! app to track calories. He turned to other apps to track his pulse, blood pressure, daily moods and medications. At one point, he was using 15 apps and gadgets, which helped him drop 64 pounds. One mobile app called “GymPact” has found a novel way of making money off its consumers’ data. The app lets people bet against one another as to whether they will go to the gym.

‘New Phase’ Emerging in Iran Nuke Talks? Both sides optimistic, though few details from session revealed Geneva H i g h- s t a k e s nu c l e a r t a l k s between Iran and six world powers adjourned on an upbeat note Wednesday, with the parties agreeing to meet again in Gene-
va in three weeks. The European Union’s top diplomat called the talks “very important,” and Iran’s foreign minister spoke of a possible “new phase” after a decade of deadlock over fears the Iranians wanted a nuclear bomb. Few details emerged from the two days of talks, but White House spokesman Jay Carney said Iran’s proposals contained a “level of seriousness and substance that

we have not seen before.” EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton read a statement endorsed by both Iran and the six powers, calling the talks “substantive and forward looking.” She said the two sides will meet again in Geneva on Nov. 7-8, and a panel of experts would convene beforehand to discuss technical issues — all suggesting an element of progress on an issue that
has threatened a new war in the Middle East. Both U.S. and Israeli ofﬁcials have declared they would never accept a nuclear-armed Iran — even though Tehran has long insisted it is not interested in building a bomb. Ira nia n Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who headed the Iranian side, said he hoped the results achieved over two days of talks “will hopefully
be the beginning of a new phase” in relations between Iran and the six powers — the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. The lack of immediate details on what was achieved, however, made it difﬁcult to evaluate the amount of progress made in what has been a decade of deadlocked negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

Court Decides to Not Jail Moscow Opposition Leader Kirov, Russia A Russian court decided Wednesday not to send opposition leader Alexei Navalny to prison, a move that could have sparked major protests and made a martyr out of the charismatic 37-year-old.

The court, therefore,

Several dozen rebel groups in southern Syria have broken with the main political opposition group in exile, a commander said in a video posted Wednesday, dealing a potential setback to Western efforts to unify moderates battling Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. In the video, a rebel read a statement with about two dozen ﬁghters standing behind him and said that political opposition leaders have failed to represent those trying to bring down Assad. The Syrian National Coalition, the political arm of the Free Syrian Army rebel group, has long struggled to win respect and recognition from the ﬁghters. KARIN LAUB (AP)

suspended Navalny’s ﬁve-year prison sentence but upheld his conviction for theft, which prevents him from running in future elections. His growing public proﬁle has made it risky for the Kremlin to jail him. But with no chance to run for ofﬁce himself, Navalny will have to ﬁnd other ways to channel his political energy and preserve the grassroots network that galvanized Muscovites in the Sept. 8 mayoral election.

Metro Sheds Light on Station Upgrades Bethesda gets a new stairway and brighter mezzanine area Five months after Metro announced it would make the Bethesda station a test case for future design changes, officials said Wednesday that a big round of improvements is complete. The updates include a new stairway to help improve congestion and a brighter mezzanine area that features similar lighting ﬁxtures to those installed at the Gallery Place and Judiciary Square stations.
At the Bethesda Metro station, changes include a brighter mezzanine featuring new light strips and a new stairway designed to help ease congestion during rush hours.
Meanwhile, other elements of the design are moving forward, including improvements to the fare machine array and a digital “infor-
mation wall,” said Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. He declined to give a speciﬁc timetable for individual changes but added that “riders
will see movement on a number of fronts, concurrently, over the next 18 months.” After completing the Bethesda
prototype, the transit agency will decide if it will roll out the effort to all or much of the 86-station system. R ACHEL SADON (E XPRESS)

While many elderly ladies spent their Tuesday playing bridge and eating dinner at 3 p.m. (we imagine), Violet Ripken, the mother of Cal Ripken Jr., one of the greatest baseball players ever, spent hers fending off a carjacker, CNN reported. According to police, Violet Ripken was in a bank parking lot in Aberdeen, Md., when a man with a gun approached and demanded her car. Ripken, 75, declined and pressed the panic button on her key ring, which set off an alarm that scared the man away. Police were later able to track the suspect down after getting a picture of him from an ATM. On a related note, police have yet to find the man who abducted Ripken last year. Yes, Violet Ripken is apparently a crime magnet. Luckily, she came away from that incident unscathed after police found her bound, but unharmed, in the back seat of her car. Police do not believe the latest incident is related to the last, but we see a pattern. So, bad guys, learn from the past and leave Mama Ripken alone, OK? MARISSA PAYNE (E XPRESS)

Sharon Davis’ face lit up with excitement when she tried on the salmon tweed Ann Taylor suit. Davis, 51, is getting ready to return to work after being without a fulltime job for more than two years. She was ﬁtted one recent afternoon in the make-shift boutique of the D.C. chapter of Dress for Success, a program that helps women obtain job and interview skills and write résumés — and also outﬁts them. The nonproﬁt has helped 12,000 women from the D.C. area over the past decade, but now the organization is facing its own challenge: At the end of the month, D.C. Dress for Success will be without a permanent location. The lease on its ofﬁce in Northeast is up, and the landlord has rented the space to another tenant who can pay more. The organization will continue to offer classes, as the new tenant has agreed to allow it to use one of its conference rooms. But until it ﬁnds a new home, D.C. Dress for Success’ boutique will be in storage. Kim Whatley, the program’s board president, has been scrambling trying to ﬁnd a new space. “It’s like ‘Groundhog Day,’ we’ve been close four times in getting space, but there has been some wrinkle,” Whatley said. Davis, who had worked for

It was over. They lost. On Wednesday, those two ugly facts began to sink in among the House’s hard-core conservatives. For nearly three years, they had effectively led the House itself — drawing their power from the intimidating sense that they were capable of anything. They often compared themselves to William Wallace, the Scottish rebel who (at least in the movies) succeeded because he refused to compromise. But then — just like in the movies — Braveheart died. On Wednesday, conservatives’ frontal attack on President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law had ended after a government shutdown, a major decline in Republican popularity and a ﬁnal compromise that gave them almost none of what they had wanted. “We tried,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C. “We lost.” After the ﬁrst effort to defund the health-care law, Mulvaney noted, conservatives tried to take away health-care subsidies to Congress members and their staffs. If “Obamacare” would survive, then at least the “political class” would not beneﬁt from it, he said. But then — “We lost that as well.” Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, added, “We’re all pretty down.” His only hope was that the polls were wrong and that the American people had somehow been impressed by all this. “Now they know we’re willing to ﬁght,” he said. For House conser vat ives, Wednesday was a day unlike many others in the giddy period since the GOP took the House in 2010. They had lost all control of the standoff
“We fought the good ﬁght; we just didn’t win.” — HOUSE SPE A KER JOHN BOEHNER, SHOWN AFTER A MEETING WITH HOUSE REPUBLICANS AT THE CAPITOL ON WEDNESDAY. HE SAID HOUSE REPUBLICANS WOULDN’T BLOCK THE SENATE’S BIPARTISAN DEAL WHEN IT COMES BEFORE THEM FOR A VOTE.
“It’s a total surrender to what Harry Reid always wanted.” — M AT T K IBBE , PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL TEA PARTY GROUP FREEDOMWORKS, WHO LASHED OUT AT THE SENATE DEAL WEDNESDAY. KIBBE’S ORGANIZATION PUSHED THE EFFORT TO USE A STOPGAP BUDGET DEAL TO UNDERMINE THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, A PLAN HE SAID COULD HAVE WORKED, IF GOP LEADERSHIP STOOD FIRM.
after House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, had failed to ﬁnd a bill that all Republicans could support. So the Senate, led by Democrats, was supposed to cut the deal instead. And it did. The House was expected to pass the deal, after Express’ deadline, with most Democrats and a few Republicans voting yes. For House conservatives, at last, there was nothing to do but wait. And then lose. Inside a House hearing room, several members attended a lunch meeting and pondered what could
have gone wrong. The answer, for several, was that other people had done them wrong. At the top of the list were Democrats and Obama. The conservatives — having taken the ultimate hardball tactic of refusing to fund the government unless “Obamacare” was defunded — were unhappy that Democrats had played so tough in response. Another problem: the House’s Republican leadership. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., blamed Republican leaders for acting on a series of
miniature spending bills to reopen parts of the government. “We kept talking, and in a negotiation, the person who keeps talking loses,” Massie said. “That’s what Harry Reid did so [well], because he didn’t talk,” he said, referring to the Senate majority leader. The conservatives also, at times, seemed to blame their own faction but said they would look to the future. They hoped that — as in “Braveheart” — this abject defeat would lead to victory, eventually. Maybe new Republicans would be elected to Congress next year, they said. “This would have turned out better if we had more conservatives in the House,” Labrador said. Reporters asked: Will they try the “Braveheart” strategy again? If the Senate’s plan passes, the debt ceiling will need to be raised again in a few months. And the government will need to be funded. “I’m going to commit some candor now,” Massie said. “I think that we have less leverage in the next CR, and the next debt limit, than we have now.” DAVID A. FAHRENTHOLD (THE WASHINGTON POST )
What about the House? Speaker John Boehner and other top House Republican leaders signaled that they intended to vote for the Senate’s bipartisan agreement. A House vote was expected after Express’ deadline Wednesday.
What happened to the health-care law? Not much. Although House Republicans decided to shut down the government in hopes of major changes to “Obamacare,” as they and many others call the health-care law, no such changes are part of the deal.
When would federal agencies reopen? Probably a day or two after President Barack Obama signs a deal. Federal employees who have been furloughed generally would be expected to report for work on their next regular working day, although some wiggle room might be allowed given the disruption to workers’ lives.
What’s next? Hold the champagne. Lawmakers are likely to return to grinding brinkmanship. Congressional talks barely touched on underlying causes of debt-and-spending stalemates that pushed the country close to economic crises in 2011, last December and again this month.
So, how much did it cost? According to Standard & Poor’s, the nation’s economy lost at least $24 billion because of the shutdown. (AP/ T WP)

RGIII: More Mobile, Less Accurate QB running better but still struggling in the passing game
Have a bold prediction for Sunday’s Redskins game against the Bears? Tweet us @WaPoExpress and your response could show up in the paper.
Robert Griffin III has his legs back. Now it’s a matter of wondering what’s happening with his arm. The Washington Redskins quarterback who nearly set an NFL rookie record for accuracy last year has missed more than his share of open receivers during the team’s 1-4 start. Part of it is dicey footwork, part of it is miscommunication with his receivers, and part of it is a lack of protection from his offensive line. “There’s some missed throws in there,” Griffin said Wednesday. “There’s some dropped passes, and all that accumulates into what the stats say, but it’s a long year. We’ve got a chance to make sure those numbers get back up, and we’ll make sure it does.” Grifﬁn has completed 59.8 percent of his throws, down from 65.6 last year, and he’s already matched his 2012 total of ﬁve interceptions. And that includes the stat-padding

The pair weren’t on the same page at least twice, including one play in which Garcon missed a signal from Grifﬁn and went short instead of deep. “Miscommunications happen when you’re trying to adjust at the line and do things,” Garcon said as

the team began practicing for this week’s game against the Chicago Bears. “But it’s nothing to worry about. It’ll come.” But fellow wideout Santana Moss, who has only one touchdown catch this year after grabbing eight last season, said it should already be down pat. “Second year, man, how much more have we got to learn each

The Big East’s media day looked a little different this year. There was no Connecticut, no Syracuse, no Notre Dame, no Pittsburgh, no Louisville. Those schools have all gone to other conferences. What’s left is a basketballcentric conference with seven remaining Big East schools and new members Xavier, Butler and Creighton. The 10-team league will have a true round-robin schedule, with everybody playing everybody twice, once at home, once on the road. “Every school in this conference has the same way of looking at college athletics,” Villanova

other? ... We ain’t going to get no more learning than what you know now,” Moss said. “I feel like every week you get better, but who needs to learn who more? We’ve been here two years together, and if we can do it the ﬁrst year without knowing each other, we can do it the second year.” Grifﬁn was so good last year that he covered up many of the Redskins’ ﬂaws. He took a major step toward looking like the 2012 version Sunday when he ran for 77 yards, more than his rushing total in the ﬁrst four games combined. “I’ve got to be the guy that I know that I am,” Griffin said. “Everybody wants me to slide and get out of bounds and do that whole thing, and for me I can’t really listen to that. It’s not that you ignore it. I understand that people are concerned, but there is a day that you have to go out there and play with your instincts.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

Terps Poised to Take Next Step Maryland would be bowl-eligible with win over Wake Forest
3:30 P.M. Sat. | ESPNU
If Maryland defeats Wake Forest on Saturday, the Terrapins will have enough wins to qualify for a bowl bid — no small accomplishment for a team that totaled six victories over the past two seasons. Maryland (5-1, 1-1 ACC) is off to its best start since 2001. In spite of a 63-0 defeat at Florida State two weeks ago, the Terrapins are on the brink of achieving one of their main objectives in coach Randy Edsall’s third season at the school. “Being bowl-eligible is a goal of ours, something we want to do every year,” center Sal Conaboy said Tuesday. “To get this win would be huge for us. Cross it off the list

Maryland’s C.J. Brown has been cleared to play after missing last week’s game.
and move on.” It’s early enough in the season for the improved Terrapins to look beyond simply qualifying for postseason play. “Every win after that, a better bowl, an opportunity to keep getting better,” quarterback C.J. Brown said.
“It’s a big week for us as a team.” Brown sustained a concussion at Florida State and missed last week’s 27-26 win over Virginia. Caleb Rowe ﬁlled in amply at quarterback, but Brown is more of a dual threat because of his ability to run. He’s been cleared to play and
will start at Wake Forest (3-3, 1-2). “C.J. obviously adds another dynamic to the offense,” Conaboy said. Brown missed all of the 2012 season with a torn knee ligament, so sitting out a week was a relative breeze. “It ﬂew by,” Brown said. “I was doing stuff during practice. I was still involved, felt sharp.” The Terrapins went 2-10 in Edsall’s ﬁrst season and 4-8 last year. Now, here they stand, poised to be 6-1 with three home games left on the schedule. “It really does speak to how much we’ve improved and how hard guys are working to get where we want to go,” Conaboy said.

Glen Rice Jr. was taking jumpers before the Washington Wizards’ game against the Chicago Bulls in Rio de Janeiro last Saturday when Bulls legend Scottie Pippen called him over for a chat. As Pippen spoke to him, Rice wiped the sweat from his brow with his shooting shirt, smiled and nodded. Then he went back to shooting again. Rice’s brief encounter with the Hall of Famer is sort of the norm for someone who has been shadowing his father — former NBA star Glen Rice Sr. — through NBA arenas almost from the time he started walking. Rice knows Pippen as a great player but also a good friend of his dad, and he’s rarely

starstruck. When it comes to his burgeoning NBA career, Rice has taken a similar approach. The usual rookie awe and intimidation have been replaced by an overwhelming sense that he belongs. “It’s just basketball,” Rice, 22, said with a shrug when asked if he felt any nerves about playing in the league. “You can only do what you can do. The more you stress about it, the worse off you’ll be. I think it’s just my mentality. You don’t want to get overworked about anything.”
7 P.M. Today | CSN Baltimore Arena
Rice displayed an aggressive style at the end of his preseason debut against Brooklyn last week, when the Wizards trailed by two at the end of the regulation. Eric Maynor threw up an off-balanced, one-handed shot and Rice darted down the lane, lifted his hands high above his head and threw down a two-handed dunk to force overtime. “I was thinking we just need a bucket,” Rice said of the play. “I had the ball, it just happened to bounce right in my hand, basically.” Rice hasn’t shot well this preseason, but he’s attacked the basket to get to the foul line. “He’s fearless,” coach Randy Wittman said of Rice. “He’s a very conﬁdent kid and doesn’t shy away.” MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Helping Out a Rival: America’s soccer team is getting some love from the most unlikely place: Mexican sports fans.

Mexico lost 2-1 to Costa Rica on Tuesday. If Panama had held on to its late lead, Mexico would have been eliminated from the World Cup qualifying rounds. (AP)

End of an ‘Alice’ Era
Headless Is Hot Washington Irving is hot in Hollywood! “Sleepy Hollow” (9 p.m. Mondays on Fox), based on the 19thcentury author’s story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” is the first new fall series renewed for a second season. What would Irving make of the show? Using his real quotes, I present this interview.
In your story, Brom Bones disguises himself as a headless horseman to scare gawky romantic rival Ichabod Crane. In the show, Crane is a dashBy Marc Silver ing Brit turned Revolutionary War soldier who springs to life in 2013, and the headless horseman is REALLY HEADLESS and a horseman of the apocalypse. Do you mind the changes? History fades into fable; fact becomes clouded with doubt and controversy; the inscription moulders from the tablet; the statue falls from the pedestal.
What do you think of Lt. Mills, the lady cop? She’s one tough cookie. Those disasters which break down the spirit of a man … seem to call forth all the energies of the softer sex.
There sure is a lot of decapitating on the show. It seems in the power of the most contemptible individual to do incalculable mischief. Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse
The local author of a long-running series about a young girl puts down her pen Naylor in Numbers
Books Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, the author who’s had her works banned more often than any other writer this past decade — more than J.K. Rowling — lives in a Methodist retirement community in Gaithersburg, Md. The books in question are the “Alice” series, which, over the course of nearly 30 years and 30 titles, has dealt with menstruation, masturbation and the maturation, physical and emotional, of an average girl growing up in Silver Spring. These are white-knuckle topics for parents, which helps explain how Naylor has landed on the American Library Association’s top 10 list of banned books so many times. “I think the fear is that the child is going to come to them and ask them questions that feel too personal,” she speculates. “It’s not that their child’s not ready. It’s that they’re not ready. I’ve had a lot of letters from people saying, ‘Oh, my daughter doesn’t even know about that,’ and I can only think, ‘Ha-ha.’ ” She received one letter that opened with, “HOW DARE YOU?” The mom explained that she’d been planning, on her daughter’s 11th birthday, to sit down and explain how sex was part of God’s plan to populate the Earth. Instead, her 10-year-old had read “Lovingly Alice,” in which the protagonist

ﬁgures out how babies are made. “I was telling this to Judy Blume,” Naylor says. “And she said I should have asked the mom, ‘What were you waiting for? Why is 11 the magic number?’ ” Naylor is 80, with gray curly hair, crinkly eyes and a warmﬂannel voice. She is wildly prolific, having written 140 books, and is best known for the “Shiloh” trilogy, about a boy and his beagle. But since 1985, six months of every year have been dedicated to the trials and humiliations of Alice, a girl raised by an unﬂappable dad and brother.
In “The Agony of Alice,” she’s a sixth-grader longing for a teacher to befriend her. In “Alice in Rapture, Sort Of,” she’s entering seventh grade. In “Alice Alone” and “Simply Alice,” she goes to high school and gets a stepmom. And now, after books that have spanned Alice’s life from ages 8 to 18, the ﬁnal Alice McKinley book, is out this week. “Now I’ll Tell You Everything” follows Alice all the way to her 60th birthday, moving through college at the University of Maryland, relationships, jobs, children. Naylor will also release an online version of the Alice Bible,

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’re likely to make an important discovery that increases your own self-knowledge and opens a few doors for you in the process. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may realize, quite by surprise, that you’ve been traveling down the wrong path for a long, long time. A change can be made today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Focus on doing things that feed your creative side. Usually you try to be more intellectual and pragmatic, but not today! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’re used to doing things for others, but today is a good day to do something important for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You don’t have to go on and on to make your point. One brief comment, made at the right time, can work wonders for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are nearing a junction which may demand a quick decision from you — but you can certainly prepare ahead of time. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ve been giving someone else plenty of something that you really should be giving to yourself as well. Turn your attention inward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may not expect to be forgiven so quickly for an unintentional offense, but the wounded party is likely to let you off the hook quickly.

Recording the Sound of a City
A Bethesda native films a documentary on the magic of Muscle Shoals
is bigger than themselves. When you went through FAME Studios and ﬁlmed there, what did you feel?
The first time I walked in there, you could just feel the history. … It really hasn’t changed much since then. It’s all the same couches and they’ve got pictures on the wall that have been there the whole time. The same wood paneling. It’s intact.
“As we rolled into town, we drove by FAME Studios. You could sense the history coming oﬀ the building.” — GREG “FREDDY ” CA M A LIER , DIRECTOR OF “MUSCLE SHOALS,” ON THE SERENDIPITOUS DETOUR THAT LED HIM TO MAKE THE FILM
Producer Rick Hall, left, and musician Clarence Carter talk neckwear in the FAME Studios booth in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
Bethesda native Greg “Freddy” Camalier makes his directorial debut with “Muscle Shoals.”
WHAT THE HECK IS ...
Performers won’t ape apes in this modern dance piece at the American Dance Institute on Saturday. Rather, choreographer Sally Silvers aimed to capture the spirit of the bonobo (a type of ape) by depicting a whirlwind of relationships between diﬀerent sets of dancers. “[Bonobos] use sexuality to keep everyone happy and eliminate male aggression,” Silvers says. The title’s dairy treat hints at the dance’s cheerful mood. “Who doesn’t like a
One of the stars of the ﬁlm is FAME’s Rick Hall, who basically invented the Muscle Shoals sound. What made you want to delve deeper into him?
— a bunch of anonymous white guys making what sounded to outsiders like black music — are so humble about their place in rock history.
What didn’t draw me into him? When you’re around him, he is a very powerful character. Charismatic, strong, fascinating. His story — the combination of his personal story, with him being the forging factor of the fire of Muscle Shoals music — I thought was central.
It’s a testament to their character. And I’m sure that their humility and their selflessness was an integral part in why they were such a good rhythm section and backing band. And why they could play on so many different styles of music with so many different artists. The great cool musicians seem to be that way. They realize that the music

You were in the room ﬁlming the interviews with all these music legends. Was that intimidating?
It was surreal. I would have thought I would have become unhinged or off my mark a little but I wasn’t, which was good because that would have been bad. [But] when Alicia Keys showed up, she knocked me off my mark. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

Broadway (Un)Bound: The classic musicals of Stephen Sondheim figure into the piece, though no one flat-out does a Broadway number. At one point, performers prance, preen and show off their legs, a shout-out to the aging showgirls of “Follies.”
Then It Gets Weird: During the onehour performance, the cast will perform a dry synchronized-swimming routine, compete in a roller derby and mime martial arts. They’re backed by an equally eclectic soundscape, which includes live spokenword poetry. “It’s all about human society,” Silvers says. Only her version is trippier than a pack of bonobos at Burning Man.
Who Needs a Fourth Wall? A core company of six dancers will perform the more intricate choreography, while six others roam the stage and aisles, doing improvisations that play off of the ideas explored by the main dancers. “It’s a lot of layers,” Silvers says. “It’s like a collage of ideas and movement.”
Bethesda native Greg “Freddy” Camalier didn’t set out to make a film about the music of Muscle Shoals, Ala. He didn’t think his first film as a director would be a documentary, either. But on a road trip to help a friend move from the East Coast to New Mexico in 2008, the pair took a detour — backtracking 40 miles — and found something magical. “That place spoke to us,” says Camalier, whose movie, “Muscle Shoals,” opens Friday. “We were drawn to it.” In Muscle Shoals, Camalier learned the story of a small city that created a sound — a country rhythm and blues — that would help define music in the ’60s and ’70s. At FAME Studios, under the supervision of owner-producer Rick Hall and with house band The Swampers, Aretha Franklin recorded “Respect” and her career was made. Later, when The Swampers left FAME to start Muscle Shoals Sound Studio across town, The Rolling Stones cut “Brown Sugar” there. “Muscle Shoals” traces the history of a place that, as the film opens, Bono describes as “magic.” Camalier tells the story of Hall, The Swampers and the town through music and interviews with those involved, including Franklin, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.
Are they doing a chorus line? A synchronized swim? Something else? Don’t overthink it.

“It’s a conversation and a collaboration with the entire group to discuss the arc of each character,” Aker says. “The script is constantly in flux, so you have a say.” Roya, her character, wants a say, too. For her, this necessitates disguising herself as a man as she works for women’s rights. When she was a child,
Duke (Khris Davis) and Roya (Melis Aker) fall for each other as they let their guards down.
As Good as News
Melis Aker grew up in Turkey, then came to the U.S. for college. Her background is handy when playing Roya, who speaks Pashto and Dari, both used in Afghanistan, plus English. “I can find vocal variations that someone who only speaks English maybe couldn’t,” she says. K.P.K.
Let’s not argue about whether Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks (and played by Benedict Cumberbatch in “The Fifth Estate,” out Friday) is a “real” journalist. As “real” journalists, our job is to make up lists about movie journalists. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford brought these real-life Posties to the screen in 1976’s “All the President’s Men,” a title that today would need much better SEO.
2 Edward R. Murrow David Strathairn played the real-life pioneering anchor in 2005’s “Good Night, and Good Luck,” which proved that hardcore reporting was once synonymous with hard-core smoking. We can’t even have lit candles at our desks.
3 Henry Hackett In 1994’s “The Paper,” Michael Keaton played a tabloid editor who, at one point, actually got to yell “STOP THE PRESSES.” He could do that because the presses were in the basement. Our basement has a parking deck. Not as dramatic.
4 Ron Burgundy 2004’s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” portrayed the fame and fortune that comes with being a bigtime TV news anchor. We get no such accolades working for a print publication, but we can type really fast. So take that.
5 Jedediah Leland “Citizen Kane” is the most accurate portrayal of journalism in the movies, as the 1941 film has a scene where Leland (Joseph Cotten) is passed out drunk over his typewriter. Though today we use computers.
The Depths Of Deception In ‘Love in Afghanistan,’ two people keeping secrets find each other Stage Roya (Melis Aker) and Duke (Khris Davis), the main characters in Arena Stage’s “Love in Afghanistan,” are staging elaborate cover-ups. Roya, an interpreter for the Americans at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan, has spent most of her life disguised as a boy. Duke, a hip-hop star on base to entertain the troops, is hiding a past that was more gated community than ’hood.
INDIES & ARTIES
Both had to build their public images from the ground up — an experience mirrored by the actors playing them. “Love in Afghanistan,” written by Charles Randolph-Wright, one of Arena’s resident playwrights, is a world premiere, which gave the actors a unique role in shaping their characters. “You usually come in the beginning with everything already set,” Davis says. In this case, the next actor to play Duke “will get a fully developed script and a fully developed character, and I’ll be able to say, ‘I remember when I did that in rehearsal and we kept it.’ The Duke that I created will forever be onstage.”
“Each of the characters shed layers of themselves and ﬁnd similar reasons why they have to put up those layers to begin with.” — MELIS A KER,
she followed an Afghan tradition where a daughter in a family without sons dresses as a boy until puberty, and she maintains the facade as an adult, for safety. It’s only at the airfield and at home that she drops the disguise. For Duke, concealing his background is an issue of class and success. “He is struggling with being a poser his entire life,” Davis says. “His mother works for the World Bank and his father was a lawyer. And the rap DNA you had to have was, you gotta struggle, you gotta be from the ’hood, you gotta sell drugs, you gotta have gone to jail, you had to have pit bulls and guns at your house to have credibility.” As Roya and Duke reveal themselves to each other, a romance develops. “Each of the characters shed layers of themselves and find similar reasons why they have to put up those layers to begin with,” Aker says. “It’s a conversation that happens throughout the play” — much like the real-world conversations that created Roya and Duke from the start.

That’s [expletive],’ ” says MeekBradley, who in March inherited her current role as executive chef at Ripple (3417 Connecticut Ave. NW). Previously, Meek-Bradley served illustrious stints at Eleven Madison Park and Per Se in New York and at Washington Square in Philadelphia — where she met Mike Isabella, who later tapped her to be Graffiato’s chef de cuisine. “I learned a lot from Mike about Greek and Italian cuisine,” Meek-Bradley says. Coupled with her California upbringing, these Mediterranean influences shape her menu at Ripple, where 90 percent of the produce is sourced locally and fresh pastas like carrot cavatelli are standouts.
The Tastemakers Meet nine local chefs bringing their own unique flavors to D.C.’s scene
Crowded farmers markets. Adams Morgan on a Friday night. Heck, even Vienna. Anyplace these nine chefs are cooking, we’re there. Though they’re not exactly household names, each one adds something special to D.C.’s food scene, whether it’s serving upscale food at an affordable price or preparing vegetarian meals that’ll leave you questioning the merits of bacon. You’ll notice that many of the culinary talents profiled here are busy settling into a new role or hard at work getting a project off the ground. That’s just one of the reasons we were thrilled they accepted our invitation to sit down for a family meal so we could get to know them all a little better. HOLLE Y SIMMONS (E X PRES S)
On the Menu Express invited all nine chefs to dinner at Aaron Silverman’s Capitol Hill hot spot, Rose’s Luxury, where he and his crew prepared an after-hours spread of oysters, smoked brisket, fall slaw, toasted white bread and a horseradish creme fraiche.
Change When Marjorie Meek-Bradley joined the kitchen at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon in 2005, she was the first woman to ever prepare food on the hot line. “I was like, ‘You’ve been open seven years.
Perseverance Maple Avenue Restaurant (147 Maple Ave., Vienna) was days away from bankruptcy when Tim Ma figured he might as well start cooking whatever he wanted at the nine-table eatery he opened in 2009 with a credit card. “There’s a brunch dish we serve with eggs and kimchee that I literally make for myself every morning,” Ma says. “I was like, ‘Screw it, let’s just put it on the menu.’ ” Following some positive local press, diners flocked in droves. Now the reservation-recommended restaurant is busy slinging plates of eclectic American cuisine influenced by Ma’s classic French training. The little restaurant that could is doing so well, in fact, Ma is opening a second outlet in Arlington, named Water & Wall, on Nov. 1. “It’s going to be an expansion of Maple Avenue, with the addition of a tasting menu.”

Cedric Maupillier has some ideas worth listening to. (His charming French accent certainly doesn’t hurt.) “I want to create a concept that can overtake McDonald’s,” he says. “I believe in creating jobs and giving people culinary experience.” The Citronelle alum is well on his way at Mintwood Place (1813 Columbia Road NW), where his American-meetsFrench menu draws loyal crowds and glowing accolades. Not bad for an ex-pat who started cooking at age 15 so he could afford a moped. His cuisine is refreshingly accessible, with escargot hush puppies coexisting alongside a wood-grilled cheeseburger.
Scot Harlan is a former pastry chef serving meat-heavy dishes at his new-ish restaurant, Green Pig Bistro (1025 N. Fillmore St., Arlington). If that disconnect strikes you as odd, you should know that Harlan doesn’t always play by the rules. Rather, the Arlington native (who in 2002 walked out on a coveted position at The Inn at Little Washington to attend Bonnaroo) follows his intuition in the kitchen, which lately has led him to simple dishes minus the snobbery. His buffalo ribs fried with hot sauce and honey and served with a blue cheese sauce are a good example. “I don’t buy microgreens,” Harlan says. “Ever.”
of wayward peach crates. The draw? Aaron Silverman’s eclectic American knockouts like popcorn soup and sausage with lychees. A Rockville native, Silverman studied political science before realizing his heart belonged in the kitchen. Following culinary school in Gaithersburg, Md., he landed stints at Momofuku in New York and McCrady’s in Charleston, S.C. With most dishes landing under $15, and with 25 cents donated to help feed hungry children for every diner who walks through the door, Silverman delivers high-level food sans pretension. Design details like tables built and signed by his uncle and a framed picture of his grandmother (the restaurant’s namesake) help to cultivate a warm environment. “We want everyone to feel like this is their home,” Silverman says. “It takes longer to turn tables, but people have a better time.”
Happiness Suzanne Simon
We’ll find out soon
Since 2012, when he and his wife handed in their aprons at Town House — the unassuming restaurant in a tiny Virginia town they overhauled and turned into a fine-dining sensation — John
Shields has toyed with the idea of opening a concept in D.C. Make that a series of pop-ups. Nope, definitely a restaurant. In Philly. Maybe. It seems the Chicagoborn chef finally has some solid news for loyal followers: “We found a space we like and have a lease in hand. It’s in Georgetown.” With an anticipated opening date of summer 2014, the yetto-be-named eatery will feature the same inventive cuisine once hailed at Town House, with an emphasis on seafood and a casual dining area out back. “I’ve always tried to keep things pure and just accentuate flavors rather than being overly creative,” Shields says. “That won’t change.” We’re going to hold him to that.
Bettina Stern Aaron Silverman
Authenticity Crowds at Rose’s Luxury’s (717 Eighth St. SE) first Saturday dinner service earlier this month caused a 2½-hour wait, inspiring a few impatient diners to craft impromptu seating out
Simon (an Ohio native with a degree in environmental science) and Bettina Stern (a Manhattanite who got her culinary start at Ina Garten’s now-defunct gourmet food store, Barefoot Contessa). The two also run loulies.com, a mindful living blog with a concentration on eating seasonally and consciously. “When you eat food in-season, you’re eating it at the peak of flavor,” Stern says. “It’s also more affordable because it’s in abundance.” A brick-and-mortar restaurant with a focus on plantbased cuisine is the goal, though the two plan to fine-tune dishes like kale and roasted potato tacos on handmade tortillas with creamy poblano sauce at pop-ups and year-round farmers markets.
Simplicity Trying to find the Chaya taco stand (chayadc.com) at the farmers market? Just look for the longest line. Launched in May, the popular vegetarian Latin American-influenced concept is led by self-trained chefs Suzanne
If you’re dining at Daikaya (705 Sixth St. NW) when a Backstreet Boys song comes on, be prepared: “We start a restaurantwide singalong,” chef Katsuya Fukushima says. But before he was able to let loose at his Sapporo-style ramen shop (with a bustling izakaya upstairs), the former culinary director of Jose Andres’ ThinkFoodGroup spent two months in Japan training under a ramen master. “I learned to have respect for ingredients,” Fukushima says. “But things can’t be too uptight, because when the kitchen’s happy, it comes out in the food.” Playful touches like a sake bomb with a spherified sake bubble that bursts under pressure delight guests. More smile-inducing news: A whiskey bar and a second ramen shop are in the works.

Hill Country does one thing and one thing only, and that’s Central Texas-style barbecue. Says Jim Foss, director of operations: “You’re never going to find pulled pork on the menu.” (That’s North Carolina ’cue.) “We truly honor the barbecue from the Hill Country region.” The restaurant even ships in post oak wood from Texas for its smoker. Now that’s honor. R.K.

To some Washingtonians, brunching is a sport. And for them, eating at Founding Farmers is the epicurean equivalent of the Olympics, only everyone’s a winner.

Vegetarians aren’t used to making tough decisions at restaurants: There are usually only a few dishes they can order. So dining at Founding Farmers might be a little overwhelming for them at first. Options for vegetarians and vegans appear all over the menu, not just in the “Meatless” section, where the faux meatloaf, mushroom Reuben and grilled cauliflower steak are among the choices. And no matter what your dietary preference, you will mop up the vegan bacon burger. R.S.
There’s a lot to love about Sweetgreen. The restaurant chain uses locally sourced ingredients, does outreach for schools and sponsors the annual Sweetlife music festival. Even if all Sweetgreen did was make salad, though, that would be enough for us. Try the Santorini, a riff on a Greek salad with grapes, shrimp and a lemon squeeze, or the Kale Caesar, which combines a favorite superfood with a favorite steakhouse classic.

Earlier this year, the vacant laundromat on the corner of 14th and Q streets NW got a $6 million makeover, emerging as Le Diplomate. The Parisian-inspired bistro marks Philadelphia-based restaurant mogul Steven Starr’s first foray into the D.C. food scene (and probably a dramatic uptick in the city’s butter consumption).

Besides games on the telly, good company and booze — plus a slushie bar! — Nellie’s earns its customers’ ardor with consistently fun daily activities. Texas Hold’em on Mondays kicks off the week, which concludes with a drag brunch on Sundays. Amateur athletes of every stripe take victory laps at Nellie’s, so you might end up rubbing elbows with D.C. flag football’s hottest player and not even know it. R.M.

There’s no need to shell out much for happy hour at Hank’s, where you can brine on dollar bivalves or slurp a $2 oyster shooter, a boozy concoction that marketing director Shane Mayson likens to “an adult protein shake.” Come back at 10 p.m. to partake of the half-price raw bar at the Dupont and Capitol Hill locations.

Sure, a World Series would have been nice, but fans aren’t about to quibble with what Davey Johnson accomplished as the Nationals’ manager.
Robert Griffin III The Redskins’ quarterback didn’t let his January knee injury keep him out of the spotlight — or off of our Best of 2013 list. As he worked his way back to health during the offseason, Griffin kept a high profile, doing commercials and even starring in a documentary. Although he’s still struggling to regain his 2012 form on the field, he eked out a win with our readers, beating last year’s Best Of winner, Bryce Harper. J.T. 2ND: Bryce Harper

Some Best Of winners defy interpretation, such as the Colonials. The men’s and women’s basketball teams combined to go 27-33 last season, and the baseball team (26-32) didn’t do much better. But, hey, perhaps fans are stoked about the men’s water polo team, which leaped to a top 20 ranking after a 9-2 start to the season (before falling to 10-7). Or, maybe, in the city that loves its Racing Presidents, we just really like their mascot, George. J.T.
Davey Johnson This wasn’t exactly the farewell season Davey Johnson hoped for. He’d proclaimed that the motto of his last year as Nationals manager was “World Series or bust,” and even the baseball-oblivious know how that ended. Still, Johnson, who has a 224-183 record with the Nationals, was critical in turning the franchise around. When he took the job in 2011, the Nats had never had a winning season. Now they’ve had two back to back. And Washington has something to brag (and cheer) about. J.T. 2ND: Mike Shanahan 3RD: Ben Olsen

The best amenity, however, is director Jim Bathurst, the strength and conditioning expert behind the website beastskills .com and two-time winner of Men’s Health’s “How Fit Are You?” contest. V.H.

Many fitness operations sucker folks into paying a monthly fee, then hope they never show up. “But we want people to take class as often as possible,” says Kate Arnold, owner of The Bar Method DC and, as of February, The Bar Method Bethesda. With two locations now at their disposal, Bar Method faithful can pulse and plie at more than 100 ballet-inspired sculpting classes a week. You might think that would raise the price tag for an all-inclusive monthly membership, but it actually dropped $5 (to $190). V.H.

We know why Rusty the red panda broke out of the National Zoo back in June: He wanted to explore his leafy surroundings in Rock Creek Park. The 4.4-square-mile sanctuary gives its neighbors lots of reasons to escape into nature for a jog, a hike or, in Rusty’s case, some tree climbing. The government shutdown curtailed certain park activities — the tennis courts closed, for instance.

Thousands ride Dupont Circle’s escalators every day, oblivious to the Whitman poetry graven in the walls.
Dupont Circle Dupont’s a nice station, but is it that much better than Union Station or Foggy Bottom? We can’t pretend to know, so here’s some trivia: 1. A stanza from Walt Whitman’s “The Wound-Dresser” is chiseled into the walls of the station’s Q Street entrance. A verse from “We Embrace,” by E. Ethelbert Miller, is etched on the concrete around the bench outside. 2. On Nov. 23 at around 12:30 p.m., the sun will align with the escalator shaft at the Dupont station’s south entrance. Wait at the bottom of the escalators for a stunning visual: a tunnel of light that only appears twice a year (the other day is Jan. 14). Architect Steve Kunin, who calculated the dates, named the phenomenon “Metrohenge Dupont.” H.J.M. 2ND: Union Station 3RD: Foggy Bottom 2ND: Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania
