Vintage finds await at the newly opened Nomad Yard Collectiv. SHOPPING
Meeting all of your 1960s kaftan needs If a Brooklyn flea market had a child with a Marrakesh bazaar and let Janis Joplin baby-sit, it’d look a little something like Nomad Yard Collectiv. The vintage marketplace — which opened Friday — is housed in a 3,000-square-foot warehouse near Union Market, adding a fashionable option to the area. Co-founders Tara Papanicolas and Desiree Venn Frederic work with vendors to stock the joint with 1960s kaftans, Turkish tea light pendants, velvet-tufted footstools and other eclectic finds. “We don’t want to bring in the person looking for a bargain,” Venn Frederic says. “What we’re offering is a lifestyle showcase.” H.S.

Last-minute election prep Yes, the election is Tuesday. But there is still time for procrastinators to get a handle on the region’s major races. The Washington Post put together a graphic that gives a broad overview of three local elections and a major ballot initiative. R.S. D.C. mayor’s race The mayor’s race will depend in part on whether more people vote, especially in areas where turnout has lagged. Ward 2 — the home and support base for David Catania — had one of the lowest turnouts in the 2010 mayoral election. The lowest turnout four years ago was in Ward 8. For more, see page 6.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is vying with Larry Hogan to succeed Gov. Martin O’Malley. Most polls show Brown with a modest lead, despite a considerable party advantage. Hogan has made inroads by promising to roll back tax increases. For more, see page 4.
In his 2008 Senate win, Mark Warner swept the state, carrying all but six of the 133 cities and counties. But since then, Republicans have made solid election gains in rural and southern areas. Tuesday’s vote will test how Warner fares amid the state’s increasing polarization.

Md. governor’s race is unexpectedly tight Turnout among black voters is likely to be key in the contest MARYLAND The race for Maryland governor was not supposed to be this close. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown crushed his Democratic primary competitors and told supporters that the general election would be “a molehill” in comparison. In a state with more than twice as many Democrats as Republicans, a poll in the spring showed Brown 18 points ahead among registered voters in a theoretical matchup with Larry Hogan, the eventual Republican nominee. But Brown has struggled to combat Hogan’s relentless criticism of tax increases enacted by his boss, Gov. Martin O’Malley. While Hogan, an Anne Arundel County businessman, promises to boost Maryland’s anemic economy and bring new jobs to the state, Brown has been slow to offer a compelling vision of what he would do differently from O’Malley, whose approval rating has plummeted. Hogan’s folksy manner and we-can-do-better message has resonated with some Democrats and independents, especially white men, and is stirring excitement among Republicans. As the polls grew tighter this fall, showing Brown with only a singledigit lead over Hogan, national groups pumped money into the

race, and top political figures lent their support. The Cook Political Report on Friday declared the race a “toss up,” with Brown retaining a slight advantage, while Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight website still shows Brown as the strong favorite. If he wins, Brown will be Maryland’s first African-American governor and only the third elected in the nation. A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll last month showed Brown had strong support in the black community, but he fell short compared with other Democrats in recent elections. Many black voters talk worriedly about jobs and how their children will make ends meet. And with President Barack Obama twice elected, some say choosing a black governor seems somehow less urgent. Still, Brown’s likelihood of
winning depends in large part on how many black voters go to the polls, said Thomas Schaller, a political science professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. “It’s about as vital as blood is to the circulatory system,” Schaller said. Both candidates attended church services Sunday in Prince George’s County before fanning out across the region to urge supporters to vote Tuesday. After 6 p.m., Hogan joined New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in Baltimore for a rally that drew hundreds of people. Brown stayed in the Democratrich Washington region, where he is counting on a large turnout from Prince George’s and hoping to motivate Montgomery residents to go to the polls.

local Mayoral race is in the hands of independents, disenchanted Dems
THE DISTRICT Independent D.C. Council member David Catania launched his bid for mayor eight months ago betting that two things could happen on Election Day that have never happened before. Catania would have to persuade more than a third of the city’s Democrats to break ranks and vote for someone outside their party. He also would need D.C.’s non-Democrats — one in four registered voters — to turn out in record numbers to support one of their own. The gambit is about to be tested.
On Tuesday, Catania and Carol Schwartz, another independent trailing in third place in public polls, face Democratic Council member Muriel Bowser. As her party’s nominee, Bowser has seized on decades of Democratic Party dominance in D.C. to amass an overwhelming advantage in campaign organization and fundraising. Polls have shown Bowser leading Catania by anywhere from 8 to 17 percentage points. But there remains the uncertainty of a wildly changed city: scandal-weary, no longer majority-black, and eager for school improvements and a closing of the gap between the haves and have-nots, but also largely content with the city’s direction.

64 percent, according to multiple scenarios acknowledged by Catania’s campaign. According to a Washington Post poll, Bowser had also pulled in more than half of Democrats who sided in the primary with Gray. Yet the poll also revealed a potential weakness for her: Two out of three Democrats would “somewhat seriously” consider voting for a non-Democrat. A key unknown is just how many independent voters, whose ranks have swelled significantly since 1994, will vote Tuesday. In the 2012 presidential race, 53 percent of D.C. voters unaffiliated with either major party cast ballots. In the last mayoral race, the number was just 18 percent.

NIH Research Studies with Ketamine to Quickly Reduce Symptoms
Standard antidepressant medications can take weeks or months to achieve their full effects. Several studies seek to better understand the causes of depression and evaluate the mechanisms in the brain that are related to rapid antidepressant improvement. These studies enroll depressed persons between the ages of 18 and 65 for an inpatient period of 2- to 3-months. Researchers will evaluate how the experimental medication ketamine, versus placebo, affects glutamate in the brain and whether a rapid reduction of depressive symptoms (within hours) can be achieved and sustained.
The studies are conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. There is no cost to participate. We enroll eligible participants locally and from around the country. Travel arrangements are provided and costs covered by NIMH. (Arrangements vary by distance and by specific study.) After completing the study participants receive short-term follow-up care while transitioning back to a provider.

Rally decries ‘Redskins’ Thousands of Native Americans declare: ‘Not your mascot’
MINNEAPOLIS At what was hailed by organizers as the largest-ever protest of the Washington Redskins’ name, a group of Native Americans stood outside the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium in a plaza built as a tribute to 11 of the state’s tribes. A man in the middle held up a sign painted in bold black letters: “RACIST.” “Who are we?” the demonstrators yelled. “Not your mascot!” On a broad grassy patch behind them, a throng of Native Americans, students and other activists chanted, sang, banged drums and waved banners: “Change the Name Now” and “Stop Racism in the NFL.”
University of Minnesota police put the estimated crowd at 3,500 to 4,000. Organizers estimated it at 5,000. Darcie Big Bear, 34, an Ojibwe from Mille Lacs, Minn., had driven two hours to be among the throng. She called the name derogatory and said resistance to changing it is “ignorance, pure ignorance. They don’t take the time to see how it affects our people.” Last November, when the Vikings hosted the Redskins for the first time since 2007, more than 700 people protested outside the stadium. But the debate about the name has grown much more intense over the past year, with a parade of Native American leaders, lawmakers and sports commentators condemning it. “If there is any decency in the NFL, the time is now — cha nge the mascot,” Rep.
Bet t y Mc C ol lu m told t he demonstrators. But some fans were dismissive as they passed the rally on their way into the stadium. Tony Cansler, who was wearing a custom Redskins jersey along with a Redskins hat, ear muffs and mittens, shook his head. “I mean, how far do you go with this, you know?” he replied. “They should take pride in the name.” Controversy has swirled around the Vikings game since August because of demands by the University of Minnesota to limit use of the team name and logo inside the stadium. School officials insisted that they cannot dictate behavior to the Vikings organization, which is paying the university $300,000 a game to use the stadium while its new facility is being built.

SpaceShipTwo exploded and crashed Friday in Mojave, Calif.
Safety concerns aired before crash MOJAVE, CALIF. The loss of an experimental spaceship that broke up over the Mojave Desert, killing one pilot and seriously injuring another, has renewed criticism of the way the craft’s designer and Virgin Galactic handled a deadly explosion seven years ago. Space enthusiasts watching Virgin Galactic’s race to send tourists on suborbital flights have complained for years about a 2007 explosion that killed three on the ground during a test in the development of a rocket engine for the same vehicle that crashed Friday. “Now we’ve got another person killed, another person seriously injured. So we’ve got a lot that has hurt the industry,” said Geoff Daly, an engineer who has filed
complaints with several federal agencies over the use of nitrous oxide to power the ship’s engine. SpaceShipTwo exploded Friday after the craft detached from the underside of its jet-powered mothership and fired its rocket engine for a test flight. National Transportation Safety Board investigators were on the scene Sunday. The agency could take up to a year to issue a final report on what caused the crash. Billionaire Richard Branson, who owns Virgin Galactic, asserted Saturday that safety has always been the top priority of the program, which envisions taking wealthy tourists to the edge of space for a brief experience of weightlessness and a view of Earth below.

JOSHUA LOTT (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
As Election Day nears, fear grips Democrats Prominent Democratic strategists are growing nervous that the national political environment is not only bad for their side but moving in the wrong direction in the final days before the election, a trend that could cost their party not only control of the Senate but also double-digit House losses. “The environment has settled, and it’s bad,” said one senior Democratic Party operative. In conversations last week with more than a dozen Democratic strategists involved in this campaign — a few who were willing to speak on the record — there were lots (and lots) of reasons given for the difficulties Democrats are facing: The Senate map. The historic trends of second-term, midterm elections — aka the “six-year itch.” Voter apathy. But the one factor that virtually every person cited was President Barack Obama. “He has become, rightly or wrongly, the symbol of dysfunction in Washington,” said one Democratic consultant. “That has led to a demoralized Democratic base, energized Republicans. And those in the middle have an easy way of venting their frustration, and that is to punish the president’s party.” With the last ads shipped and the last polls conducted, there’s not much to do but try to read the tea leaves. And from what Democrats are seeing, it doesn’t look good. At all. CHRIS CILLIZZA

A generational divide in math
The Common Core is sending parents across the country back to school EDUCATION Jennifer Craig stared at her daughter’s fifth-grade math homework. It was a three-digit multiplication problem, and it seemed simple enough. But her 10-year-old was supposed to solve it by drawing a chart, breaking apart numbers, multiplying, adding and maybe more. “I’m lost,” said Craig, a 31-yearold stay-at-home mother of three from Rochester, N.Y. That’s how she found herself in her daughter’s classroom Monday night alongside other parents, listening as teacher Alyshia Thomas explained new math strategies. Most U.S. public school students are learning math very differently than their parents did, due to Common Core State Standards, national K-12 math and reading benchmarks that have been adopted by 43 states
and the District of Columbia. The changes have confused many parents — particularly at the elementary level — leaving them flustered by a basic parental duty: helping with homework. “Almost every parent comes in and says, ‘This is not how I learned math,’ ” said Melissa Palermo, a fourth-grade teacher at Rochester’s Nathaniel Hawthorne school. Palermo is a believer in the Common Core — a wholesale and controversial change in American public education — because she says her students are showing a more sophisticated understanding of math and are able to perform operations they otherwise wouldn’t have learned until they were older, she said. But parents are another matter. “The toughest part is the homework part because parents, it’s
so hard for them,” Palermo said. From New York to California, school districts are holding special math sessions for parents and caregivers, sending home “cheat sheets” and offering homework hotlines, all in an effort to explain and demystify the new approach. In the past, math was learned as a series of memorized facts, formulas and shortcuts or tricks. The Common Core standards

Official: Iraqi Kurdish forces will only stay in Syria “temporarily” to help defend town of Kobani from militants
A bipartisan group of governors and state education chiefs created the Common Core State Standards in math and reading in 2010 as a way to inject consistency into K-12 academic standards, which have varied wildly from state to state. The standards spell out the skills and knowledge students should possess by the end of each grade. They are not curriculum — states and school districts decide how to teach to the standards and what materials to use. (TWP)
differ in that they emphasize the concepts behind mathematical operations and stress that there are multiple ways to arrive at the same answer. In primary grades, math instruction begins with “manipulatives,” such as blocks or beads, and progresses to drawings, number lines or graphical groupings. The idea is to teach children to think about a number as more than just a symbol. Word problems are heavily used, and that has raised concerns that Common Core math is particularly hard for English language learners. And because the rollout of the Common Core has been fast — the standards were written just four years ago — many say the quality of teaching materials, worksheets and homework is uneven. In Rochester, more than 200 people showed up for the recent “Family Do the Math Night,” one of seven the district is holding. Willie Howard, 65, sat with his two granddaughters and followed the teacher’s directions to subtract 23 from 46 by drawing a series of circles. He understood the method but wasn’t entirely sold. “I don’t know about this,” he said, considering all the circles he’d drawn. “There’s a whole lot more process to this. And kids, they get distracted easy. They say it’s better. But I don’t know.” LYNDSEY LAYTON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Robert Griffin III was sacked five times Sunday.

STARS OF THE GAME
Return to futility 29
THE VIKINGS SPOILED THE RETURN OF ROBERT GRIFFIN III, outlasting the Redskins in a seesaw
battle. After showing signs of promise throughout his first game back since dislocating his left
DeSean Jackson Redskins wide receiver
Entering Sunday, the Redskins’ speedster had more 40-yard receptions (seven) than 24 NFL teams this season. Jackson just keeps making big plays, adding two more catches of more than 40 yards Sunday. He finished with four grabs for 120 yards and a TD. (EXPRESS)
ankle in Week 2, Griffin found himself in position to save the day. With 3 minutes 27 seconds left,
and his team down by three, Griffin needed to orchestrate an 80-yard, game-winning drive. But with 1:09 left and facing fourth and six from his own 43-yard line, Griffin’s pass to Pierre Garcon sailed low, killing the drive. Washington fell to 3-6 on the season after having a two-game win streak snapped, and now heads into its bye week. MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST) WORST PREGAME: Well, the Redskins got in a bus accident, were hit by a double-dip of negative ESPN stories and were protested by thousands outside the stadium. The Vikings … I dunno. I guess they just went to the game.
WORST RECORD: The Redskins are 3-6 for the fourth straight year. Of course, in 2012, a 3-6 record going into the bye week didn’t stop the Redskins from winning the NFC East.
WORST BREAKOUT: The Vikings ANN HEISENFELT (AP)
hadn’t scored 20 points since September. They had averaged 12 points a game over their previous four outings. But with Washington in town, the Vikings more than doubled that mark. Alfred Morris had 19 carries for a season-high 92 yards and two TDs. BEST BREAKOUT: Let me be
the 4,000th person to say: The happiest Redskins player about Griffin’s return should probably be Alfred Morris. With the read-option threat back in the playbook, Morris carried 19 times for 92 yards, his highest total of the season. His
previous high? Morris had 91 yards in the opener against Houston, the only previous game that Griffin completed. BEST ESCAPE: On Griffin’s first post-injury drive, he was wrapped
up for a sack. Then somehow he wasn’t wrapped up for a sack, and instead completed a 24-yard pass to Roy Helu Jr. for a first down. It was a phenomenal play for any quarterback, much less one who has faced questions about his health.
WORST ROAD TRIP: Last year’s season became derailed in the first week of November during a road trip to a bad Minnesota team. In 2013, Washington was in control early and led at halftime, but the Vikings scored 20 points in the second half to pull away. This time Washington was in control early and led at halftime, but the Vikings scored 22 points in the second half to pull away. Last year, the Vikings loss kicked off an eight-game losing streak. We’ll see what happens next. DAN STEINBERG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

The 234-pound bruising running back had only 26 yards on 10 carries, but he was the Vikings’ go-to guy in the red zone. Asiata scored three TDs — two from 1-yard out — and had the 2-point conversion after his game-winning score to give the Vikings a 29-26 lead late in the fourth quarter. (EXPRESS)

JIM ROGASH (GETTY IMAGES)
With Gio Bernard out with a hip injury, the Bengals turned to the hard-running rookie out of LSU. Hill had been held to less than 40 yards in six of his previous seven games, but he rushed for a career-high 154 yards on 24 carries with two touchdowns Sunday.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had nine catches for 105 yards and a TD in Sunday’s win over the Broncos.
TOM BRADY OUTDUELED PEYTON MANNING, throwing for four touchdowns, and
Julian Edelman returned a punt 84 yards for a score in leading the Patriots past the Broncos. The 16th matchup between the all-time great quarterbacks wasn’t particularly competitive after the first quarter. New England (7-2) won its fifth straight, halting a four-game winning streak for Denver (6-2) in emphatic fashion. Brady has 18 TD passes and one interception in those five victories. Manning fell to 2-7 at Gillette Stadium and 5-11 overall against Brady, even though he threw for 438 yards and two touchdowns. In his 200th career start, Brady passed for 333 yards. He has won 155 of those, the most for any quarterback in that many starts. (AP)
Mark Sanchez replaced the injured Nick Foles and threw for 202 yards and two TDs to lead the Eagles to a win over the Texans. Foles injured his left shoulder late in the first quarter, forcing Sanchez into his first action since 2012 with the Jets. He threw two interceptions in three quarters but made throws when he had to. The Eagles (6-2) led by 3 when Jeremy Maclin caught an 8-yard TD to make it 31-21 with about four minutes left. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 203 yards with two TDs and an interception for Houston (4-5). (AP)
Carson Palmer had three TDs after an early interception the Cowboys returned for a score, and the Dallas offense struggled without an injured Tony Romo. The Cardinals (7-1) have the best record in the NFC after their fourth straight win. The Cowboys (6-3) dropped their second straight after a six-game winning streak. DeMarco Murray’s record streak of eight straight 100-yard games to start the season ended against a defense that didn’t allow a back over the century mark for the 18th consecutive time. (AP)
Eagles wide receiver
For Maclin, it didn’t matter who was quarterbacking the Eagles on Sunday. The 26-year-old caught one TD pass from Nick Foles and another one from Mark Sanchez. In the past two games, the Eagles receiver has 18 catches for 345 yards and four TDs.
Alex Smith finished with 199 yards and two TDs passing, and Jamaal Charles ran for another score for the Chiefs (5-3), who won for the fifth time in six games. Starting his first game with the Jets (1-8) in place of Geno Smith, Michael Vick threw for 196 yards and a TD. The Jets’ eightgame skid is their longest losing streak since 1996, when they went 1-15 in their final year under Rich Kotite. The franchise has never lost nine in a row, an embarrassment they’ll try to avoid when they play Pittsburgh next Sunday. (AP)
Peyton Manning sets NFL record with 14th straight game with more than one TD pass
Brian Hoyer threw a 34-yard TD pass to Taylor Gabriel with 8:59 remaining, helping the Browns (5-3) complete a favorable stretch of their schedule with a win over the Buccaneers (1-7). Hoyer finished 21 of 34 for 300 yards, two TDs and two interceptions. He improved to 8-3 as Cleveland’s starter. (AP)
Jeremy Hill ran for a career-high 154 yards and a pair of TDs, including a 60-yarder in the fourth quarter that helped the Bengals (5-2-1) hold on for a victory over the Jaguars (1-8). Andy Dalton threw a pair of TDs, but also had a pair of interceptions that kept it close. (AP)
Ryan Tannehill threw for 288 yards and three scores, and the Dolphins forced four turnovers to rout the Chargers. The Dolphins (5-3) earned their third consecutive victory. The Chargers (5-4) lost their third game in a row and remain winless in South Florida since January 1982. (AP)
The Rams recovered a fumble by Colin Kaepernick at the goal line with 2 seconds remaining, and St. Louis sacked the San Francisco quarterback eight times on the way to an upset over the 49ers (4-4). Greg Zuerlein kicked a go-ahead 39-yard field goal for the Rams (3-5) with 5:25 left. (AP)
The third-year QB is having one of the best stretches of his career. In Miami’s threegame win streak, Tannehill has completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 761 yards and six TDs and one pick. He had a season-high 288 yards Sunday. (EXPRESS)

WIZARDS Last season from his seat on the bench, Otto Porter Jr. heard fans calling his name at Verizon Center as a form of protest, urging Wizards coach Randy Wittman to play the then-rookie out of Georgetown. On Saturday night, the secondyear forward heard the chants again. In the third quarter of the Wizards’ 108-97 win over the Bucks, “Ot-to Por-ter” began ringing throughout Verizon Center. But fans weren’t calling his name because they wanted to see him on the court. He was already on the floor enjoying the best performance of his young professional career. The 21-year-old Porter incited the Wizards’ third-quarter blitz and tallied 19 of his career-high 21 points in the second half following Paul Pierce’s ejection. It was the second time Porter set his career high in three games this season after appearing in just 37 contests last year. “I am definitely starting to see the payoff since summer league,” said Porter, who averaged 19 points per game in the Las Vegas Summer League in July. “I’ve just been getting in the gym and going after my coaches to prepare for games like this and to always stay ready.” Porter and Garrett Temple,

who also recorded a careerhigh with 18 points Saturday, comprised the unlikely duo Wittman relied on to stymie the Bucks. Both played the entire second half and have helped soften the blow of the injured Bradley Beal’s absence. “I thought those two together were playing so well,” Wittman said. “Every time I tried to maybe give them a blow, they’d
do something else.” The performance was possible after Pierce was ejected with seven seconds remaining in the second quarter. Porter capitalized from there. “He was full of energy,” center Marcin Gortat said. “The extra three pounds he gained in the offseason, it looks like he’s beasting people around now.” JORGE CASTILLO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

MLS PLAYOFFS There was a point in the second half Sunday when it became abundantly clear D.C. United was not going to win the first leg of the MLS Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Red Bulls. Unified and resourceful throughout this renaissance season, United had fallen under the spell of French star Thierry Henry and sputtered about chilly Red Bull Arena like a middling side, not one that had finished first with the third-most points in the league.
United did not need to win the opener of the two-game, totalgoals series. But it did have to limit the damage and, to bolster its standing in a potential tiebreaking procedure, register an away goal. United did neither, placing its season in peril with a 2-0 defeat to the fourth-seeded Red Bulls before an announced 18,054. United will need a two-goal victory of its own in Game 2 Saturday afternoon at RFK Stadium to harbor any hope of advancing. “We’ve dug ourselves a little bit of a hole but it’s certainly

doable,” coach Ben Olsen said. “I do believe in the resiliency of this team. I have no doubt we will make a real push and make this thing very interesting.” United did not make it interesting Sunday. While Henry set up the first goal with a back-heel cross and assisted on the second with a long ball, D.C. had no rhythm and almost no quality scoring opportunities. “We were just sloppy all over the field,” midfielder Chris Pontius said. “They just looked like the sharper team.” STEVEN GOFF (THE WASHINGTON POST)

MUST-SEE THIS WEEK
1 ‘MasterChef Junior’ 8 p.m. Tuesday, Fox
Keeping him honest ‘Harmontown’ shares the good, bad and ugly of ‘Community’ creator Dan Harmon STREAMING Even if you’ve never watched “Community,” the wildly inventive sitcom formerly on NBC, you probably know that its creator, Dan Harmon, was unceremoniously fired as show-runner and then rehired a season later. In that ensuing time, he took his podcast, “Harmontown,” on a cross-country tour. When he tapped filmmaker Neil Berkeley to document the experience, Harmon envisioned a lighthearted mockumentary. Berkeley had something else in mind. “I made him a deal that it would be my tour but his film,” Harmon, 41, says. “I kind of knew when I made the agreement that there would be moments when I would look less than gorgeous, but I also knew if that weren’t the case, it would be a truly bad movie.” “Harmontown” is that rare,
darkly compelling documentary that shows the hero’s unsavory traits next to his witty ones, forcing viewers to reconcile any contradictions. Scenes in the film capture Harmon’s arguments with his fiancee Erin McGathy. It’s the kind of footage many people would fight to keep out of a film, but for Harmon, honesty is just his modus operandi. “It’s a cowardly instinct for me,” Harmon says. “I’m following my fear by saying what’s on my mind all the time because what’s terrifying and unacceptable to me … is thinking something and not sharing it. It always leads to worse trouble.” His troubles are well documented in the film, but through that footage an intimacy forms between subject and audience. “I think with my mouth,” he explains of living with a film crew. “When I was being followed
Manager confirms jazz clarinet player Acker Bilk died Sunday at 85
The show goes on Expectations are high for the new season of “Community,” which will stream on Yahoo TV. Dan Harmon is excited by the new medium but says the show won’t change: “I’m not going to have the characters all start smoking and showing their boobs. People fall in love with a tone and rhythm. It won’t feel like the same sonnet if the syllables change.” (TWP)
around and asked to share what was going on in my head all the time, it was kind of the most natural phase in my life.” In a way, Harmon still sees himself as the outsider instead of as someone who’s been credited with redefining the sitcom. “I thought I was going to be a novelist as a kid, but I was really bad at describing things,” he says. He wrote comics and
dabbled in sketch comedy before finding screenwriting. “All you have to do is understand diehard structure and you can do this,” he says. Soon, he introduced viewers to the flawed but lovable students of Greendale Community College. “We think of movies as being more real than TV, but the truth is ancient Greek mythology is more of a television show,” Harmon posits. “It’s an interconnected soap opera. … When you’re looking at a Grecian urn with the latest exploits of some Greek hero on it, you’re kind of looking at a lunchbox for a TV show, not a movie.” CHRISTOPHER KOMPANEK

MARC SILVER | BROADCAST MUSE
I guess I’m just not smart enough to get “How to Get Away With Murder” (10 p.m. Thursdays on ABC). I like the show. Viola Davis, as law professor and attorney Annalise Keating, is a marvel. She deserves an Emmy for: best walk into a courtroom (shoulders squared like a linebacker, intense gaze); best removal of wig, false eyelashes and makeup to reveal the careworn woman behind the polished face; and best no-nonsense delivery of an outrageous line (to her husband: “Sam, why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?”). I usually can grasp the details of the case of the week: broker charged with insider trading, teen charged with shooting his dad. But the show is sprinkled
with puzzling “flash forwards” — scenes filmed in a sickly green light, set weeks in the future. The law students who help Keating with her cases are disposing of a body wrapped in a rug. They are hacking up the body. They are going to a bonfire. The body appears to be Keating’s cheating husband. One student says, “We all had to do things tonight that we didn’t want to do.” There are brief glimpses of a cheerleader spinning in the sky and a coin flipping. And then there’s that girl who confessed to a murder but said she didn’t do it. Huh? My brain muddled, I asked my wife, “Is it me, or is this show hard to follow?” She said reassuringly, “Don’t worry, if I paid attention I’m sure I wouldn’t understand it either.” Read Marc’s previous columns at washingtonpost.com/muse.
The box office takes of “Ouija” and “Nightcrawler,” tying for first place this weekend. With Halloween cannibalizing Friday night moviegoing, Hollywood studios largely avoided the weekend, making it one of the quietest release weeks of the year.

“My rent is $450 and I can no longer pay it today due to this completely outrageous charge.” GABRIELLE WATHEN AT GOFUNDME.COM crowdfunds to pay
for a $362 Uber from a 20-minute ride Saturday night. The Baltimore resident claims she didn’t know surge prices were in effect at the time of her trip. According to Uber, surges occur during unusually busy times and are accompanied by a confirmation screen. As of Sunday, Wathen had raised almost $600 before her plea was quietly removed from the site.

“Today In Metaphors — The Redskins team buses crashed into each other (no one hurt)” @POURMECOFFEE analyzes the meaning behind the Sunday events of the Redskins’ team buses. While en route to their game at Minnesota, the police escort missed the exit ramp, causing the first team bus to abruptly stop to avoid hitting it. The second bus then collided with the first. No serious injuries were reported. The Redskins went on to lose the game 29-26, by the way.

“Prince’s unprecedented eight-minute ‘SNL’ set still felt too short as most viewers were probably wishing the ‘Purple Rain’ singer would perform an encore instead of kicking it over to Weekend Update.” DANIEL KREPS AT ROLLINGSTONE .COM is still blown away by Prince’s

PAR SCORE 140-150, BEST SCORE 212
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may have to endure some punitive correction as a result of an error that has far-reaching ramifications. Don’t repeat this incident! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) What begins as a quick and easy adjustment is likely to turn into something that takes much more time and effort. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’re not sitting in the prime position at this time, and you’ll have to give way to someone who is above you as a matter of course. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Fast is slow, and slow is fast, and many other things are likely to take on what seems to be the opposite character today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re
curious to learn how something started that you’re having trouble ending. Certain key information doesn’t add up.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) It’s a good time for you to show another just what you’re made of, but you don’t want to be too aggressive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Weigh your options with great care. What seems to be simple may prove quite complex, and vice versa. Give someone a second chance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may
not be able to support your point of view in the way that you had hoped. Still, few are likely to challenge you directly.
TODAY: Although we’ll start the day quite chilly, partly to mostly sunny skies get things moving in the right direction. High pressure settling in across the Southeast turns our winds more from the west-southwest, which cuts off the flow of chilly air. Much lighter winds settle in at around 10 mph or less.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) The one you’re following may make a few key errors. It may be time for you to take on the mantle of leadership. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may not think you can be seen when engaging in questionable activity, but someone surely has his or her eye on you.
