A comics collector’s gift to the people


Smithsonian announces birth of endangered deer

Library of Congress begins to showcase his record donation SHAWN MILLER (LIBRARY OF CONGRESS)

CULTURE Stephen Geppi believes that pop culture mementos can summon a flood of childhood memories. Speaking at the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress last week, the entrepreneur and collector explained why he’s enthused about giving more than 3,000 items from his holdings to the library. He opened Geppi’s Entertainment Museum in Baltimore in 2006, and the “No. 1 comment” he would hear from visitors gazing at his prized pop artifacts, he recalled, is: “I had that when I was a kid.” “Maybe it was something you absolutely loved and never thought you’d forget,” Geppi said. “But life goes on and before you know it, it’s completely out of your head. But — boom! — you see one little thing and the fiber [network] of information in your head” is triggered.


Comic distributor Stephen Geppi has gifted 3,000 items of his collection.

Geppi, a comics distributor, has been in the business of acquiring memory-laden art for decades. In May, he announced that he would begin entrusting the Library of Congress with a large part of his menagerie — the largest comic book donation ever acquired by the library, which began publicly showcasing his record donation Tuesday. “It belongs here,” said Geppi, underscoring his belief that at the library, rare Spider-Man art can rightly sit next to such historic

holdings as the Gutenberg Bible. The crown jewel in his donation is the set of animation storyboards from “Plane Crazy” that mark the first full renderings of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse character. David Mandel, the library’s director of the Center for Exhibits and Interpretation, said Geppi will continue to be personally involved as the library works toward providing more gallery space for his collection.

Voters save D.C. man’s life with CPR A 75-year-old man went into cardiac arrest at Barnard Elementary School, along Decatur Street NW near the Petworth neighborhood, as he was trying to cast his vote Tuesday. Bystanders called for help, and a 911 operator walked them through performing CPR. They also used an automated external defibrillator. The man was breathing by the time rescuers arrived. In a Twitter message, D.C. fire officials wrote, “He didn’t get to vote, but he got to live.” The man is said to be recovering. (TWP)

Takeaways from midterms Hogan, Bowser came out on top, but seem to lack long coattails REGION The 2018 midterms are over, and here’s some of what we know. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser remain on top, though both learned they don’t have much in the way of coattails. Republican U.S. Reps. Barbara Comstock and Dave Brat are out — casualties of a blue wave in the House that landed with force in Virginia. Other key takeaways from the election in the DMV:


Judges toss out congressional map in Md.

Corey Stewart seems done Corey Stewart, the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate who was once described by former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon as the “titular head” of the Republican Party of Virginia, got walloped by Sen. Tim Kaine, D, and appears to be looking at a shrinking political career. Stewart says he might not even run for re-election as chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors next year.

Coattails have limits Bowser became the first D.C. mayor on Tuesday to win reelection since 2002. But that doesn’t mean the mayor is allpowerful. She put her name, her donor network and her political machinery behind her handpicked choice for D.C. Council,

Virginia’s Sen. Tim Kaine, left, Marc Elrich of Maryland, above right, and D.C.’s Elissa Silverman all won Tuesday.

Dionne Reeder, fighting hard and publicly to unseat incumbent Elissa Silverman, I-At Large. But Reeder was soundly defeated. In Maryland, meanwhile, Hogan’s popularity did not boost enough Republican state Senate candidates to eliminate Democrats’ veto-proof majority in that chamber. Republicans whom Hogan backed for key county executive spots also lost, weakening the GOP bench just at the time when the governor could begin grooming a successor. Neither Hogan nor Bowser was the top vote-getter in their jurisdiction. D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine and D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, both

Democrats, each collected more votes than Bowser. Hogan’s 1.2 million votes were a huge jump from the nearly 900,000 he got in 2014, a lowturnout year. But Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., won 1.36 million votes and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, D, won 1.35 million.

Progressivism is alive and well Left-leaning Democrat Marc Elrich trounced independent Nancy Floreen in the race for the top spot in Montgomery County, Maryland’s most populous — and one of its most economically powerful — jurisdictions. Floreen, like Elrich a longtime county council member, left the Democratic Party after Elrich

won the nomination for county executive so that she could challenge him as an independent. She had strong support from the business community, but that did not translate into votes at the polls.

Politics is still local The blue wave affected even extremely local races, flipping county executive seats in normally red Anne Arundel County and purplish Howard County. In deep-blue Arlington County, an astounding 70 percent of voters turned out and chose Democrat and political newcomer Matt de Ferranti over incumbent John Vihstadt, I, a fiscal watchdog who won easily four years ago.

MARYLAND Federal judges in Maryland on Wednesday blocked the state from using its congressional voting map in future elections, ordering political leaders to draw new electoral lines for contests in 2020. The three-judge panel unanimously threw out the congressional map in a long-running partisan gerrymandering case. The decision gives Maryland officials until March to submit a new redistricting plan. If the state is unable to meet the deadline, the court’s order establishes a commission that will create a map of its own. The ruling can be appealed directly to the Supreme Court, which in June avoided answering the question of when extreme partisan gerrymandering is unconstitutional in the Maryland case and in another map case from Wisconsin. The office of Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, D, which defended the map, said Wednesday it is reviewing its options. At the core of the issue is the 6th District in western Maryland, which was redrawn in 2011 to include parts of heavily Democratic Montgomery County. Democratic mapmakers moved hundreds of thousands of voters from western Maryland out of the 6th District and added Democrats from Montgomery. ANN E. MARIMOW (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Policy in Action

THE DISTRICT Residents of D.C. get no vote in Congress, but the Democratic takeover of the House may come with a consolation prize: recreational marijuana shops. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, D, fresh off her re-election victory, said Wednesday she plans to introduce legislation early next year to legalize the sale of marijuana. Voters in 2014 passed a ballot measure legalizing the possession of marijuana in small amounts. But House Republicans have blocked the city from spending money to regulate and tax marijuana. That means District residents over 21 can legally grow and use marijuana, and possess up to 2 ounces. But it must be used and grown on private property, and cannot be exchanged for money, goods or services. Residents cannot buy marijuana as they can in 10 states that have legalized the drug, and the District is not able to tax transactions, losing what could be millions in revenue annually. The District has several dispensaries for registered patients who use medical marijuana. But with Republicans losing control of the House, local elected officials hope the federal



You’re Invited!

Democratic capture of House may mean full legalization in D.C.

Mayor Muriel Bowser plans to introduce legislation early next year to legalize marijuana sales in D.C., after Democrats took control of the House.

restrictions against recreational marijuana will end and full legalization can commence. “We will prepare a tax-andregulate scheme to present to the council at the beginning of the next year,” said Bowser at a City Hall press conference outlining her second-term goals. “We have an untenable situation in the District,” the mayor continued. “As long as we have the ability to possess marijuana, which is our law, we also need the ability to procure marijuana legally, which we don’t have now.” She declined to offer further details. Council member David Grosso, I-At Large, has already introduced legislation authorizing the city to license pot retailers. But there’s no guarantee

congressional hurdles will disappear. And there’s a complex path ahead before marijuana stores could open. The restrictions on the District’s spending come as part of annual budget negotiations between the House and the Senate. Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., is behind the anti-marijuana restrictions on the D.C. budget. But now that he’ll be in the minority, he likely won’t have the votes to push it through the House. A spokesman for Harris did not return a request for comment. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Mike Quigley, D-Ill., who is set to lead the panel overseeing District affairs, say they’ll oppose the anti-marijuana rider.

There are 92,994 students enrolled across both sectors. (TWP) 2 men shot, one fatally, early Wednesday in Bellevue area of Southwest Washington; no arrests made

nation+world Wells Fargo admits it mistakenly denied help to many who qualified FINANCE Wells Fargo acknowledged Tuesday that, because of a calculation error, it had improperly foreclosed on 545 distressed homeowners after they asked for help with their mortgages. Overall, 870 homeowners were denied help for which they qualified — with more than half losing their homes afterward, Wells Fargo said. The acknowledgment is sure to increase pressure on the San Francisco-based bank, which has been struggling to repair its image after a series of missteps. It has already paid more

than $1 billion in fines to various regulators for opening up sham accounts people did not want and improperly repossessing thousands of cars. Wells Fargo has repeatedly apologized for its missteps but has yet to win over many lawmakers, including Democrats who have called for CEO Tim Sloan to testify again about the bank’s actions. The bank is also under orders from the Federal Reserve not to grow any bigger than its current $2 trillion in assets until it addresses its various problems. In this case, Wells Fargo said an internal review found the bank had denied help to hundreds of homeowners after fees charged by foreclosure attorneys were improperly used when

the bank determined whom to offer mortgage help. The problem began in 2010 and was not corrected until last April, the

bank said. The revelation echoes the complaints of thousands of borrowers in the years after the financial crisis that banks were stingy about offering help with their exploding loans. Wells Fargo initially disclosed the problem in August and said it would set aside $8 million to address the problem. It did not say how much more money, if any, it expects to set aside to compensate the additional borrowers. “This effort to identify other instances in which customers may have experienced harm is ongoing, and it is possible that we may identify other areas of potential concern,” the bank said in its SEC filing.

JAKARTA, INDONESIA Airplane maker Boeing said Wednesday that it has issued a bulletin to airlines worldwide warning of erroneous readings from flight-control software on its planes, after an almost-new Lion Air jetliner crashed into the sea soon after takeoff, killing the 189 people on board. Boeing is assisting in the investigation into what went wrong in the Oct. 29 crash of one of its new 737 Max 8 jets. The bulletin informed airlines of what to do if they receive false readings from flight-control software that measures the plane’s angle and informed crews of the procedure to follow. The bulletin from Boeing was the first indication that an error with the aircraft’s systems may have caused problems for the Lion Air flight, which took off from Jakarta. The plane’s altitude fluctuated dramatically after takeoff, and the plane accelerated before nosediving into the Java Sea 13 minutes later. Indonesian investigators have recovered the plane’s flight data recorder, which showed that the plane’s airspeed indicator malfunctioned on its last four flights. They said Wednesday that a sensor on the jet was replaced the day before the doomed flight, on Oct. 28, after a pilot flying the same aircraft on a different route reported problems with it. The investigation is ongoing. TIMOTHY M CLAUGHLIN AND STANLEY WIDIANTO (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Migrants weigh options Stay in Mexico or try for U.S. asylum? People in caravan aren’t sure.

Trump extends olive branch — with a warning ALFREDO ESTRELLA (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

MEXICO CITY Central American migrants on Wednesday continued to straggle in for a rest stop at a Mexico City stadium, where about 4,500 continue to weigh offers to stay in Mexico against the desire of many to reach the U.S. border. Mexico City officials said they expected as many as 1,000 more might arrive at the Jesus Martinez stadium as lagging members of the caravan trail in, their journeys slowed by difficulties. Angel Eduardo Cubas of La Ceiba, Honduras, reached the shelter early Wednesday after being split off from the caravan when the truck he caught a ride with took a different route. Like many migrants, he had to find his way back to the relative safety of the caravan in an unfamiliar country, with no money. “There were a lot of people who got dropped off somewhere else,” said Cubas, 28, who at one point lost his two children, 2 and 6, before finding them again. Members of the caravan of migrants, which President Trump made a central issue in the midterm elections, declined to make

an immediate decision Tuesday night on whether to stay in Mexico or continue north, opting to remain in the capital at least a couple more days. “Nobody is in more of a hurry than me to get going [to the U.S. border], but we have to go all together,” said Sara Rodriguez of Colon, Honduras. Rodriguez, 34, fled her country with her 16-year-old daughter, Emily, after the girl began to draw attention from a drug

trafficker. Rodriguez left her 7-year-old son with her husband. “Even though it hurts to leave my son ... I had to protect her,” Rodriguez said, weeping. Mexico has offered refuge, asylum or work visas to the migrants and the government said 2,697 temporary visas had been issued to individuals and families to cover them while they wait for the 45-day application process for a more permanent status. Rina Valenzuela, who is from

El Salvador, listened attentively to aid workers from the nonprofit Institute for Women in Migration as they explained the difficulties of applying for and securing asylum in the U.S. Valenzuela decided she would better off applying for refuge in Mexico. “Why go fight there, with as much effort and as much suffering as we have gone through, just for them to turn me back? Well, no,” she said. MARIA VERZA AND CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN (AP)

POLITICS President Trump threatened Wednesday to retaliate with a “warlike posture” should the new Democratic House majority use its subpoena power to launch investigations into his administration, warning that any probes would jeopardize prospects for bipartisan deals. During a lengthy and at times combative White House news conference, Trump repeatedly praised Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. The president, who had demonized Democrats in apocalyptic terms and attacked Pelosi on the campaign trail, said he looked forward to working with her on “a beautiful bipartisan-type situation.” But Trump said that he would react aggressively to any attempt to look into possible corruption in his administration or investigate his personal finances or conduct in office. He vowed to respond with a “warlike posture” that would extinguish any hopes for bipartisan progress. Trump answered questions from journalists for an extraordinary one hour and 26 minutes in a rare formal news conference in which he refused to take personal responsibility for any role his inflammatory rhetoric has played in the nation’s corrosive public discourse and instead blamed the news media. “Hopefully the tone can get a lot better,” he said, “and I really believe it begins with the media.” PHILIP RUCKER AND JOSH DAWSEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

A tsunami of women

Some see a building wave as female candidates make historic gains in midterms POLITICS Tuesday was a day of historic political gains for U.S. women. More than 100 women were projected to win seats in the House of Representatives, easily shattering the record. Overwhelmingly, they were Democrats who helped the party take control of the chamber. Women have never held more than 84 of the 435 seats in the House. With votes still being counted Wednesday night, 96 women had been officially declared winners. “Women made history in a number of ways and were a significant force in flipping many districts from red to blue,” said Kelly Dittmar, a political scientist at Rutgers University. Of 277 female candidates for Congress or governor, 117 had won as of Wednesday. Many of the winning candidates campaigned on the need for better health care for all. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds — from military veterans to teachers — and many had never run for office before. In gubernatorial races in

Kansas and Michigan, women flipped states that had been under Republican control. Democratic state Sen. Laura Kelly defeated Trump-backed Republican Kris Kobach in the Kansas governor’s race. Gretchen Whitmer, a former state senator in Michigan, won her governor’s race after campaigning on a promise to fix the state’s roads and aging drinkingwater infrastructure, and to expand Medicaid. Notably, Michigan Democrats selected a woman for every statewide office on Tuesday’s ballot: governor, U.S. senator, attorney general and secretary of state. The women who ran this year were remarkably diverse. In New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old Latina who defeated incumbent Joseph Crowley in a decisive primary, is heading to the House. In Massachusetts, Democrat Ayanna Pressley became the first black woman elected to Congress from the state. Democrats Sharice Davids of Kansas and Deb Haaland of New

Voting for Democrats Nationwide, Democrats won women’s votes for Congress by a 19-point margin, with 59 percent of women voting Democrat and 40 percent voting Republican — the largest margin seen in midterm exit polls, according to CNN data. The last time women voted for Democrats by anywhere near that margin was in 1982, when 58 percent of women voted for Democrats and 41 percent voted for Republicans. (TWP)

Mexico are the first Native American women to serve in Congress, and Davids is also the first lesbian congresswoman from Kansas. Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, born in Detroit to Palestinian parents, and Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, who arrived in the U.S. from Somalia at age 14, won their House races, becoming the first Muslim women elected to Congress. “The opportunity to be here, to participate in this democracy, has made me want to dance, and door-knock and talk to people and invite people to the joy of

what it means to participate in a democracy,” Omar said at a rally in Minneapolis on Monday night. Democrats did not fare well as well in the Senate. In Missouri, one of the few Democratic women in the Senate, Claire McCaskill, was defeated by Republican state Attorney General Josh Hawley. Some GOP women won key races. Trump-backed Marsha Blackburn, who called herself a “hardcore, card-carrying conservative,” became the first female senator from Tennessee. In South Dakota, Kristi Noem was elected the state’s first female governor. Dittmar of Rutgers noted that while the gains are a “significant jump,” women are still underrepresented. The U.S. trails many other countries in the legislative representation of women. “This is only just the beginning,” said Stephanie Schriock, the president of Emily’s List, a group that supports women in politics. “I think we are going to see a historical turnout of women in 2020 — this is not dying down.” MARY JORDAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Even in deep-red states, voters embraced an array of liberal-backed ballot measures in Tuesday’s election.

Embattled AG Sessions is forced out

Mueller probe’s fate uncertain under Whitaker

WASHINGTON Attorney General Jeff Sessions was pushed out Wednesday as the country’s chief law enforcement officer after enduring more than a year of blistering and personal attacks from President Trump over his recusal from the Russia investigation. Sessions told the president in a one-page letter that he was submitting his resignation “at your request.” Trump announced in a tweet that he was naming Sessions’ chief of staff Matthew Whitaker, a former United States attorney from Iowa, as acting attorney general. Whitaker has criticized special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential coordination between the president’s Republican campaign and Russia. The resignation was the culmination of a toxic relationship that frayed just weeks into the attorney general’s tumultuous tenure, when he stepped aside from the Mueller investigation. Trump blamed the decision for opening the door to the appointment of Mueller, who took over the Russia investigation and began examining whether Trump’s hectoring of Sessions was part of a broader effort to obstruct justice and stymie the probe. Asked whether Whitaker would assume control over Mueller’s investigation, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said Whitaker would be

“in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice.” The Justice Department did not announce a departure for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller more than a year and a half ago and has closely overseen his work since then. Whitaker once opined about a situation in which Trump could fire Sessions and then appoint an acting attorney general who could stifle the funding of Mueller’s probe. The relentless attacks on Sessions came even though the Alabama Republican was the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump and despite the fact that his crime-fighting agenda and priorities — particularly his hawkish immigration enforcement policies — largely mirrored the president’s. But the relationship was irreparably damaged in March 2017 when Sessions, acknowledging previously undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador and citing his work as a campaign aide, recused himself from the Russia investigation. The decision i nfuriated Trump, who repeatedly lamented that he would have never selected Sessions if he had known the attorney general would recuse himself. The recusal left the investigation in the hands of Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller as special counsel two months later after Trump fired

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told President Trump on Wednesday in a one-page letter that he was submitting his resignation “at your request.”

Only the first shoe?

then-FBI Director James Comey. The rift lingered for the duration of Sessions’ tenure, and the attorney general, despite praising the president’s agenda and hewing to his priorities, never managed to return to Trump’s good graces. Sessions endured most of the name-calling in silence, though he did issue two public statements defending the department, including one in which he said

he would serve “with integrity and honor” for as long as he was in the job. The recusal from the Russia investigation allowed him to pursue the conservative issues he had long championed as a senator, often in isolation among fellow Republicans. He found satisfaction in being able to reverse Obama-era policies that he and other conservatives say flouted the will of Congress, including by encouraging prosecutors to pursue the most serious charges they could and by promoting more aggressive enforcement of federal marijuana law. He also announced media leak crackdowns, tougher policies against opioids and his Justice Department defended a sinceabandoned administration policy that resulted in parents being separated from their children at the border.

POLITICS The future of the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign was thrown into uncertainty Wednesday after President Trump ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump named as acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker, Sessions’ chief of staff, who as a legal commentator last year wrote that special counsel Robert Mueller appeared to be taking his investigation too far. A Justice Department official said Wednesday that Whitaker, above, would assume authority over the probe. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been overseeing the investigation since last year because Sessions, a key Trump surrogate in 2016, recused himself from dealing with matters involving the campaign. Whitaker could sharply curtail Mueller’s authority, cut his budget or order him to cease lines of inquiry. However, Whitaker’s role could still be reviewed by ethics officials. Comments he has made about Mueller’s investigation could put pressure on him to recuse himself, as Sessions did. Trump’s decision to push Sessions out Wednesday conflicted with comments he offered during a news conference on Wednesday when he insisted he had a right to end the investigation but said that he would prefer to “let it go on.” ROSALIND S.

Stellar first impressions

Why Harper turned down a record offer ANALYSIS The Nationals offered Bryce Harper the biggest free agent contract in the history of the four major sports in late September and he and his agent turned it down. Think about that sentence for a moment, and glean these two nearly stunning facts from it: First, the Nationals — often described as somewhere between maddeningly selective in their spending and unnecessarily frugal — were willing to give one of their players a record-setting deal. They offered Harper $300 million for 10 years in a deal that included no opt-outs, according to multiple people familiar with the terms. The biggest free agent deal in pro sports history by total value had been Alex Rodriguez’s 10-year deal worth $275 million with the Yankees in 2007. Giancarlo Stanton’s 2014 deal, which guaranteed him $325 million over 13

seasons, was an extension. Second, Bryce Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, turned that deal down. And some would have considered them negligent not to do so. For years now, Boras has been selling Harper as a talent so rare he could command more than $400 million, and when presented with that number this week, he joked, “Why be so limiting?” So where does that leave Harper and the Nationals now? Importantly, both sides felt the offer was legitimate and respectful. But people familiar with the offer also indicate that it is now off the table, an offer meant to capitalize on the Nationals’ exclusive negotiating rights with Harper that stood for five weeks until the 26-year-old officially became a free agent. The sides could still strike a deal later in the offseason. But if they do, it almost certainly won’t be that deal, and Mike Rizzo acknowledged Tuesday that his team cannot afford to wait around. “It behooves us to have an expiration date,” Rizzo told reporters

Star bets $300M deal from Nats won’t be his best option. Now what?

Freshmen RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish scored 83 of Duke’s 118 points in a rout of No. 2 Kentucky on Tuesday. Here are a few other freshmen who had impressive debuts.

The Nationals reportedly offered outfielder Bryce Harper, 26, a 10-year, $300 million deal in late September, but he turned down the deal.

How offer measures up Bryce Harper’s 10-year, $300 million deal actually would not have been the largest in MLB history by average annual value. Zack Greinke ($34M), David Price ($31M) and Clayton Kershaw ($31M) all got more. Max Scherzer got exactly $30 million. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). (TWP)

Tuesday, an indication that the Nationals are prepared to move on in their plans without Harper because, as one person familiar

with the situation said, they “can’t have $300 million dangling out there for months.” If Harper signs elsewhere, the Nationals’ outfield next season will consist of Juan Soto in left field, Victor Robles in center and Adam Eaton in right field with former Gold Glove finalist Michael A. Taylor as a backup in center. It will cost them roughly $13 million. “I’m comfortable with the alternative [to signing Harper],” Rizzo said Tuesday. “But I’m not comfortable with the statement that we’re a better team w ithout h i m.” CHEL SE A JA NE S

The top-five prospect fouled out of his first game, a 73-55 loss to No. 25 Washington. But the 6-foot-11 center still finished with a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds).

2 Jalen Smith Maryland

The Terps leaned heavily on their five-star recruit from Baltimore in a 73-67 win over Delaware. He had 19 points and dominated the glass with 13 boards (nine offensive).

1 Quentin Grimes Kansas

The guard was on fire from long range leading the topranked Jayhawks to a win over No. 10 Michigan State, hitting 6-of-10 3-pointers and scoring 21 points.



Bryant agrees to sign with Saints

Dez Bryant and the high-flying Saints reached an agreement on a one-year deal Wednesday, a day after his workout with New Orleans, according to multiple reports. Financial terms of the deal were not announced. Bryant was one of several receivers who worked out Tuesday for the Saints, who placed Ted Ginn Jr. on injured reserve last month. Bryant, 30, has been out of football since being released by the Cowboys in April. (TWP)

After horrible 2-8 start, Wizards dismiss critics questioning the coach ANALYSIS Despite the horrendous start for a Wizards team that expected to contend in a LeBron James-less East, it appears Scott Brooks, in his third season as the Wizards’ coach, has more than enough collateral within the organization to remain protected from social media uprisings and hot-seat rumors. He also has the unwavering support of his players.

“He’s a guy who’s coming in and doing a job like the rest of us,� Markieff Morris said. “Sh-happens. You take losses but it’s like, we started like this before. You know what I’m saying? We’re just trying to find it.� Even more, Brooks has the security of working in Washington. In just about any other NBA market, a 2-8 start from a veteran team that has been together too long to be this disjointed might cast serious doubts on the job security of the coach. But in Washington, things are different. This is not simply because the



“That’s my guy. Very selfless. He was actually supposed to be here, but something came up. He told me to go anyways.� TYUS JONES, thanking Timberwolves teammate Jimmy Butler for getting a chartered private plane so he could go see his brother Tre Jones’ college debut for Duke on Tuesday night — a 118-84 win over No. 2 Kentucky

University fires 2 trainers in wake of McNair death The University of Maryland fired two high-ranking athletic trainers whose actions had come into question in the wake of Jordan McNair’s death in June. Steve Nordwall, assistant athletic director of athletic training, and Wes Robinson, the head trainer for the football program, had been on paid administrative leave since Aug. 10. Both were informed Tuesday that their employment had been terminated, according to a person familiar with the situation. (TWP) MLS

D.C. United back Kemp announces his retirement Taylor Kemp, D.C. United’s starting left back for three years who missed this season with injuries, announced his retirement Wednesday.

Neither he nor the team was optimistic about a recovery that would have allowed him to perform at peak level. (TWP)

ESPN: Cowboys LB Sean Lee (hamstring) could miss 4-6 weeks


Only in D.C. would Brooks’ job be safe

Coach Scott Brooks has gone 94-80 in two-plus seasons with the Wizards.

Wizards have already batted down the non-story of Brooks not being in the line of fire. No, Brooks will likely remain the Wizards’ leader for several reasons: He’s guaranteed $21 million from an organization that has

soared past the luxury tax despite its roster holes. He heads a revamped staff with only one assistant experienced enough to take over top duties. And most of all, he works for an owner who may be willing

to press the eject button on his NHL coaches but practices the patience of a monk when it comes to making changes to his basketball operations. Last fall, owner Ted Leonsis gave Ernie Grunfeld a contract extension despite the 538-686 franchise record he has amassed in his 15-plus years as the Wizards’ lead executive. After the Wizards got smoked by 19, the fourth blowout loss this season, to a rebuilding Mavericks team on Tuesday night, Bradley Beal admitted that he’s aware of talk about Brooks’ job security. “It’s on TV, people are talking about it. No truth to it at all,â€? Beal said. “He’s a well-experienced coach. ‌ So you’ve got to respect what he’s done. You can’t just shoot a man in his foot.â€? CANDACE BUCKNER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

A new home for art — and artists EXHIBITS Over the past 17 years, the Gateway Arts District — a 2-mile corridor along Route 1 in Prince George’s County — has evolved into a sprawling creative enclave comprising several small galleries and outdoor public art displays. The newest addition to the area is Portico Gallery & Studios, a space where local

artists can thrive, according to head curator John Paradiso. “Artists need to be valued,� says Paradiso, who is also one of five artists-in-residence at Portico. “They need the support of another space to get their work out there.� The facility in Brentwood, Md., features five studios reserved for local artists and an exhibition space where more creatives can showcase their work.

Gregg Rozeboom RESTAURATEUR Gregg Rozeboom lives a life at sea. The 40-year-old founder of plant-based restaurant chain Fruitive resides on a 38-foot Silverton yacht named Faithful that’s docked at The Wharf. He’ll sometimes sail Faithful — which has two bedrooms, two full baths and a full kitchen — all the way to Virginia Beach, where he opened the first Fruitive location in 2012. The fast-casual spot has since expanded to the District and Norfolk, Va., and is still growing. After having opened the first D.C. location at City Center in 2015, Rozeboom plans to open a second location in Dupont Circle this winter. “D.C. has become a lot more accommodating” of plant-based eating, Rozeboom says. “More people are aware that it is not just good for the body, it’s good for the environment.” His vision of a perfect D.C. day — full of plants to eat and nature to explore — reflects that ethos.

All Express. All the time.

The first thing I would do is wake up on the boat on The Wharf. It’s usually rocking, and I love to look out the window and see the birds flying overhead, the ducks and the rippling of the water. I’d probably read a little and have some fruit for breakfast. One of the books I am reading right now is “Blue Mind” by Wallace

J. Nichols, and that’s all about the science behind being near water and how it can make us happier and healthier. I love to run. My favorite spot to run in D.C. is around the National Mall. I’d probably listen to an audiobook while running. I recently downloaded Nadia Murad’s book “The Last Girl”

From there, I’d head over to CityCenterDC . The highlight of my day would be lunchtime at Fruitive. We have so many regulars and I love talking and connecting with them, as well as tourists who are stopping by. One of the best things about our location is that every season they change up the decorations overhead. They just changed it to the fall theme, which is umbrellas. You can sit in the window and watch people all day snapping photos and doing poses and it really is entertaining. I also like Shouk, another plant-based restaurant in the area. I’d then go to the FreshFarm Dupont Circle Farmers Market to buy organic produce and interact with the farms we buy from. It is a really fun environment. While I am in Dupont, I’d head over to Restaurant Nora, which I can’t in real life because it closed down, but it was the first certified organic restaurant in the U.S. I’d head up to Friendship Heights and visit my friends at Barnard Medical Center. They do classes and nutritional events in the evening, so I’d do one of those. Sometimes they have movies. One I cannot wait for is James Cameron’s “The Game Changers.” I’d want to watch that with them. I’d probably head back to the boat, and if it was the perfect day, I’d start up the boat and end the day sailing on the water. AS TOLD TO ZAINAB MUDALLAL (EXPRESS)

The faces they chose to show us

When taking a selfie, most of us want to create an image that shows everyone how perfect our life is and how amazing we look right now. That puts us in good company with artists of the past hundred years, says Brandon Fortune, curator of the National Portrait Gallery’s new exhibit, “Eye to I: Self-Portraits From 1900 to Today.” “These artists are all creating their own personas and presenting their own public face to the world,” she says. Many of the 78 works in the exhibit do go beyond the superficial, though. “Some artists use themselves as cheap models, to experiment with composition or work out problems; others use portraiture as a form of activism, to make a particular point,” Fortune says. Whatever the case, a critical viewer should contemplate what each artist is trying to convey, says Fortune, who singled out a few highlights of the show. SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)


National Portrait Gallery, Eighth and F streets NW; through Aug. 18, free.

‘Self-Portrait With Rita,’ Thomas Hart Benton (circa 1924) Muralist Thomas Hart Benton casts himself in the role of a Hollywood heartthrob in this oil painting, Fortune says. That’s not surprising for an artist who got his start painting backdrops for silent films. His cinematic style is evident in the golden glow he’s given himself and his young wife in this Martha’s Vineyard scene. Around the time Benton created this painting, he saw “The Thief of Baghdad,” and the movie’s bare-chested leading man “might have influenced his pose,” Fortune says.

‘Copper Self-Portrait With Dog,’ Susan Hauptman (2001)

‘Super Buddahead,’ Roger Shimomura (2012)

In this pastel drawing, Susan Hauptman’s frilly, hyper-feminine blouse and skirt contrast with her otherwise androgynous appearance, Fortune says. Hauptman draws realistic ruffles, but then abandons her knowledge of shading and perspective with her feet, which are done in a rough, folk-art style. “She is contrasting different things within herself, leaving us with a complicated self-image,” Fortune says.

Japanese-American artist Roger Shimomura subverts stereotypes by placing his own head on Superman’s body, Fortune says. “The artist puts himself in a role that would be typically given to an elite white man,” she says. The fact that Shimomura’s head doesn’t quite match the style or color palette of the rest of the picture “helps us to see that he is trying on a role and not fully taking it on,” she says.

Good news, D.C. leaf peepers: Fall has finally arrived, and trees across the city are bursting into color. We may not have entire hillsides of fiery foliage, like you get on Skyline Drive, but what D.C. lacks in intensity we make up for in diversity. More than 350 different species of tree call the capital region home, and that results in a very long foliage season. Native trees like dogwoods and tupelos get it started in early October, and cold-hardy foreigners like the Japanese maple can keep it going well into December. D.C.’s tree variety is due to our mild climate, international visitors who bring flora from their homelands, and the U.S. National Arboretum — 446 rolling acres that are home to roughly 14,000 different species of plants, some of which are quite rare. So, when I wanted to see autumn in full flame last week, the Arboretum was my first choice. My Uber driver, a lifelong D.C. resident, had never heard of the Arboretum. “Where are you going?” he asked, surprised that his app was taking us to an otherwise industrial corner of Northeast D.C. When we rolled through the main gates, he was floored. “This is amazing! It’s like a forest in a city!”

Except the Arboretum isn’t like any forest that nature would devise. Much of the landscape is neatly mown and regularly weeded by an army of volunteers, and its canopy is made up of international trees as well as ones that were Frankensteined in USDA laboratories. In fact, the Arboretum was founded largely as a place for Agriculture Department scientists to showcase new varieties of ornamental plants — created by crossbreeding (and, more recently, genetically engineering) flora to be more beautiful and hardy than their forebears. I bid my driver goodbye and pulled my bicycle out of his trunk. This is cheating, I know, but biking to the Arboretum means navigating busy highways and one vertiginous hill. Once you’re inside the gates, though, cycling is a delight, and probably the best way to explore the Arboretum’s 91/2 miles of meandering roads. Following the suggestion of the official Arboretum app, I biked to a place called Maple Hill and found a stand of trees ablaze in fall colors. Among the familiar oranges, yellows and reds was a tree that had turned an unusual purple-red. Unlike many trees at the Arboretum, this one didn’t have a label. Luckily, the app includes a map of every single plant on the premises, so I was able to


Fall in one place: My colorful trip to the Arboretum

determine that my mystery tree was a Brandywine maple, a cultivar developed by Arboretum scientists in 1998 for pest resistance and distinctive, long-lasting fall color. I sat down underneath a sugar maple and soon all the animals that had scattered upon my abrupt arrival resumed their daily routines. A flock of squabbling blue jays alighted on the grass near me, looking like pieces of sky falling to the ground, and a pileated woodpecker tapped out a message of doom to bugs hiding in the bark of a sugar maple. A huge vulture drifted by, looking thoughtful, perhaps also taking in the fall colors. I was jealous of his lofty perspective. Where else should I go? My app sent me to the fallblooming camellias, another Arboretum invention. They

In the fall, they look especially lovely, a tidy Roman ruin framed by golden grass and blue flowers — bluestar and aster, the app said. I made my way to the shady, terraced hillside that houses the Arboretum camellia collection — or what’s left of it, anyway. In the late 1970s, a few bitterly cold winters killed almost all of the Arboretum’s 900 camellias, a sign explains. One of the remaining plants,

romantically called #162475, became the basis for an Arboretum program to breed coldtolerant camellias. Perhaps it hasn’t been cold enough for them yet — I only found a few of the white and pink flowers open among the glossy green leaves. It’s practically illegal to go to the Arboretum without swinging by the bonsai pavilions and seeing the worldfamous collection of dwarf trees, so I made that my last stop of the day. A few of them were just beginning to change color, and a gardener told me that they’d likely peak in time for the weeklong autumn bonsai exhibit, which opens on Saturday. I guess I’ll just have to go back then! For more on D.C. life, follow Sadie on Twitter: @SadieDing

Grateful Dead


‘Star Wars’


“We grew up in a little hillside town attached to Santa Cruz — sort of a surfer, skater community — and the 2013 collection this dress is from is sort of an origin story. It’s based on a lot of ideas we had growing up [in the 1990s] — when we saw tiedye for the first time, when we first encountered counterculture. This dress has beautiful roses with handembroidered Swarovski crystals and then it goes to tie-dye, which was maybe an homage to the Grateful Dead.”

“This is from our mermaid collection, from 2015. When we were children, we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and there was a section where they showed you what it looked like where the pier goes into the ocean and accumulates barnacles and sea anemones. So our idea of a mermaid is all about the accumulation of life on a body. There are a lot of different layers in this dress — one is an iridescent sequined net, and there’s a hand-embroidered lace that has pearl and feathers. We then worked with a painter and had that hand-painted to look like things underneath the ocean.”

“This is from our [2009] collection which referenced ‘Star Wars.’ We’ve always loved ‘Star Wars’ and appreciated the artistry of George Lucas; everything was so artfully done and every detail of the film — the costumes, the backgrounds — were handmade. This dress has a large, hand-embroidered swirl in the center, with Swarovski crystals, and the dress itself is probably made of 45 yards of silk tulle that has been hand-dyed and then all hand-sewn onto the dress so it looks like a second skin. The tulle was hand-dyed to create those soft washes of color that represent the nebulae of outer space.”

“Kate and I love nature. Our father is a botanist and the natural world has always been a huge part of our lives. There’s no specific inspiration for this [2018] pantsuit except for the fact that I wanted to create something very beautiful and detailed, like nature. And I think one of the ways that we approach design is thinking about what makes something look so perfect that’s imperfect, or how can something have so much symmetry but at the same time have an organic element to it. All those layers of sequined flowers are hand-embroidered, so no two are alike.”

Aztec Sun rising The D.C. funk and soul band caps a whirlwind year with its debut album

D.C.’s Aztec Sun will release its debut album, “In the Name of Everyone,” on Saturday.

MUSIC It’s a Tuesday night in late October and D.C. funk and soul act Aztec Sun has just wrapped its weekly band practice with a revved-up rendition of its Afrobeat-inspired, anti-authoritarian anthem “Resist.” As the band’s members start packing up their gear, the discussion in the Bloomingdale rowhouse turns to the outfits for Aztec Sun’s upcoming album release show at Pearl Street Warehouse. After a couple of people note that constrictive suit jackets make playing more difficult, singer and guitarist Stephane Detchou interjects. “What I like about soul bands and their outfits is the concept that the performers are a little bit uncomfortable,” he says. “It

makes me feel like they are respecting the audience who has paid money to come and see them. They’re “In the Name working for it of Everyone” — I just love Aztec Sun that.” Since 2012, Detchou, 30, has been working hard to turn Aztec Sun from a four-piece that played James Brown and Red Hot Chili Peppers covers at house parties to a 10-piece powerhouse live act — the kind of band that sells out an album release show two weeks early. Saturday’s Pearl Street show marks a major milestone for the charismatic frontman and

“I was really focused on the group take because I know that our strength is when we’re playing together.” STEPHANE DETCHOU, Aztec Sun’s frontman, on the band’s studio work

his rising band: Not only does it come on the day that debut album “In the Name of Everyone” will be out on CD and streaming platforms, but it also marks one year since the shows that made

this record possible. Last November, Aztec Sun was tapped to open two gigs for the rotating improv collective Everyone Orchestra. Alan Evans, a member of the funk and jazz trio Soulive who was drumming with Everyone Orchestra at the time, was eating dinner with friends at the venue, New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, when Aztec Sun’s playing caught his ear. “I didn’t know those cats at all,” Evans recalls. “I got up in the middle of eating and went out in the room to listen to them. There was a something about them — the second I heard them. When you know, you know.” The next day at Gypsy Sally’s in Georgetown, he chatted with Detchou and his bandmates,

many of whom were Soulive fans. They told Evans they were planning to record an album soon and shared their vision for capturing the feel of the live show in the studio. Evans, who owns Iron Wax Studios in Erving, Mass., didn’t need to hear much else. “Before I even knew any of the tunes that they had, just a description of what they wanted to do, I could hear it all in my head,” Evans says. “I was like, ‘I can do this — we can do this together.’ ” For their performance that night at Gypsy Sally’s, the band members invited Evans to add timbales to their song “Revolution.” Anyone who was in the room could tell they all spoke the same musical language.

THURSDAY | 11.08.2018 | EXPRESS | 29

Aztec Sun’s Stephane Detchou, center, acts as the band’s leader, singer and guitarist.

“It’s these moments where you can kinda sit back and go, ‘Maybe we are on to something,’ ” says keyboardist Ryan “Catch” Banning. “Maybe this is more than just the music we like.” Soon after, Aztec Sun made plans to record at Iron Wax. In mid-February, the band, now 10 members deep — including singers Sara Ghebremichael and Lee Anderson; horn players Graham Robertson, Adam Kent and Joe Goltz; lead guitarist Ray Lamb; drummer John Heinze and bassist Shane Weckesser — got in a van and drove to Massachusetts. They tracked in one room live as a band, with minimal overdubs. “Al’s studio feels like your living room,” Banning says. “You don’t feel the pressure of recording. Al was so supportive and encouraging. From the moment we said, ‘Go,’ he felt like family.” By this point, the band had the songs and a vision, and Evans was just there to help make it happen. (He shares production credit with Detchou and the band.) “I think the songs grew in that space,” Detchou says, “because what he reminded us of often was, ‘Guys, the thing you’re worrying about, don’t worry about it — that’s not important, [the songs are] killer.’ I was really focused on the group take because I know that our strength is when we’re

playing together.” The finished product, the selfreleased “In the Name of Everyone,” is a very D.C. album, with songs that reference the city and others that grapple with political Washington in the age of President Trump. “Resist,” for example, is sung in pidgin English — a nod to Detchou’s family’s roots in Cameroon — with lines like, “He want to be messiah but he just crazeman for TV.” The title track, which equally showcases the funk and soul sides of the band, is about the feeling many had the day after the 2016 election. “District” and “Red Line” are about D.C. the city. The former, Detchou’s favorite song on the album, explores gentrification and how D.C. is constantly changing. The latter, written about Detchou’s old Metro commutes from the Shady Grove station to downtown D.C., can be read as a criticism of the Metro system, but it’s also a metaphor for perpetuating negative cycles. “There’s a lot of things we can do ourselves that we can take charge of,” Detchou says, explaining a theme of the album. The standout may be the closer, “Love … Call On Me,” an anthemic, horn-led ballad that’s destined for wedding playlists. “What I love about it is we can

play with the audience and really open it up and play with the go-go tradition of call and response,” Detchou says. After the album-release show, Aztec Sun has gigs in New York and New Jersey, as well as the band’s first New Year’s Eve show, here at Union Stage. Because the members, mostly in their 30s, are a mix of part-time musicians who work full-time jobs and full-time musicians who work part-time jobs, Aztec Sun can tour only occasionally, like in September when the band opened four shows for Rebirth Brass Band. “Right now, everyone is still enjoying that we’ve become a D.C. staple,” Banning says. “That’s a huge accomplishment.” Detchou is already thinking about the next album and has an ambitious plan that his bandmates, and Evans, are on board for. But he’s also stopping to enjoy these moments. “Sometimes I look across the stage and I’m like, ‘Man, look at all these silly adults smiling,’ ” he says. “We’re making noise and there’s a beautiful community to it. We’ve got a good team.” RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

Kamasi Washington If jazz has a modern savior, it’s 37-year-old saxophonist Kamasi Washington. Though he worked for years as a session musician — recording with Ryan Adams, Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus — it wasn’t until his 2015 triple album, “The Epic,” that Washington started getting recognition on his own. In June, he dropped “Heaven and Earth,” an expansive and exploratory album of forward-thinking music that still manages to pay homage to jazz’s past.

Low’s latest album, “Double Negative,” isn’t just a testament to the sonic evolution of the band. It’s also a soundtrack to the hopelessness and anguish the indie rock trio felt after the 2016 election.

Kiiara: Landing a song in an Apple ad isn’t the star-launching event it used to be, but it still gets the job done. Last year, singer Kiiara’s breakout single, “Gold,” sneaked up the charts after being featured in a commercial for the Apple Watch. The song announces itself with a persistently glitchy mosaic of vocal modulations and pulsing drum machines, but it’s the 23-year-old Illinois native’s whispered, melodic lullabies that propel the song to the finish line. She brings that atmospheric voice to U Street Music Hall on Sunday.

The humans of ‘Boy Erased’ Director Joel Edgerton hopes the drama gives parents a ‘road map’

Hanson is back, with a few more strings attached


FILM Joel Edgerton already knows who’s going to see “Boy Erased” when it opens Friday. Based on the 2016 memoir of the same name by Garrard Conley, the movie details a gay teen’s time at a “conversion therapy” camp. The Christian organization that runs the facility believes that homosexuality is a choice and that gay men and women can be coached into being “normal” — that is, straight. “No doubt liberal-minded parents and blue state folk who have an open mind towards sexuality are probably going to be the first people in the door,” says Edgerton, who directed the film, wrote the screenplay and plays Victor Sykes, the head of the camp. “But I think there are parents out there who are open-minded enough who may be having a situation under their own roof [they’re] maybe keeping private, or they have a brother or sister whose children are going through it. Anyone who relates in any direct or indirect way to this subject matter may have enough of an open mind to go watch the movie, and then use it as a bit of a road map.” The road isn’t easy for the family in the film. After Jared (Lucas Hedges) is outed to his parents — Marshall, a Baptist preacher (Russell Crowe), and Nancy (Nicole Kidman) — they

offer the teen a choice: Go to the camp, or get out of the house. During the program, Jared and the other attendees (ranging in age from preteen to adult) are subjected to mental and physical abuse — all of which they are instructed to keep secret, as telling anyone would interfere with the process of “healing.” Edgerton, who starred in 2016’s “Loving” and this year’s “Red Sparrow,” says he was careful not to frame Jared’s parents as evil or cruel. “Our identification of people around us as heroes and villains is a really subjective thing,” Edgerton says. “When you really examine [the parents], their feeling about homosexuality was based

“Our identification of people around us as heroes and villains is a really subjective thing.” JOEL EDGERTON, director of “Boy Erased,” on his desire not to present the parents in the film as evil

on the information that they had — which was that homosexuality was not something you could be born [into], that it was a choice, that it was sinful, that it was possible to turn that choice around. It meant there was a way to help their son. It isn’t a villainous

thing; it’s misinformation.” That doesn’t mean Edgerton wanted to paint Marshall and Nancy in a sympathetic light, either. “I wanted to make sure I told [Conley’s] story honestly,” he says, “and let the audience have their own point of view, rather than for me to force that point on them.” In the end, Edgerton sees “Boy Erased” as a story of hope emerging from a struggle. “It doesn’t matter if you make a mistake; it’s what you do next that counts,” he says. “I really think that human beings are defined very heroically when they’re willing to acknowledge a wrong choice and follow it up with a right one.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)


“[Aretha Franklin] just smiled her sweet smile at me and said, ‘I didn’t want to let you down.’ ” ELTON JOHN, recalling the singer’s final performance, at his AIDS foundation’s gala last November. “I was shocked to see

how thin she was,” John told the AP, adding that she still “gave us one of the greatest performances of our lifetime.”

ALBUM REVIEW The Hanson boys have done everything in their power to get you to listen beyond “MMMBop.” They’ve put out solid new music, live CDs, Christmas albums, greatest hits collections and even covers of songs by U2 and Radiohead. Now they’ve gone uptown — they’ve gone orchestral. “String Theory,” the 23-track double album coming out Friday, finds Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson reworking past songs and unreleased ones for swaths of strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Many of the songs, thankfully, aren’t overwhelmed by the Prague-based orchestra, or they often see its influence melt away, as on “Where’s the Love” or “This Time Around.” Sometimes it’s all a tad forced, like on “Something Going Round.” And sometimes, truth be told, the original is just better, like “Yearbook.” “String Theory” is not another greatest hits collection. Some Hanson songs that have appeared on such previous compilations — like “Get the Girl Back” and “Penny & Me” — have not been picked to be orchestratracked. But you really want to know about what happened to “MMMBop,” don’t you? The new version is slower, more complex and yet still fun and catchy, even though it’s been given a lushness rarely offered on other pop songs. Here’s hoping you listen, and maybe consider staying awhile? MARK KENNEDY (AP)

@BRENBREN713, tweeting about Beyonce’s eleventh-hour endorsement of

Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke for the U.S. Senate, just hours before polls closed Tuesday. After O’Rourke lost to incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, many teased the singer, saying her influence could have made an impact, while fans slammed people for blaming a black woman for O’Rourke’s loss.

“We must protect this Trainer at all costs.” @CJOHWAIT, tweeting about 70-year-old Chen San-yuan. The Taiwan native is an active Pokémon Go player who was profiled by news outlets in August for his impressive bike mount featuring 11 smartphones. The setup allowed him to ride around and constantly catch Pokémon on the mobile game. Chen has since upgraded and now has the phones mounted to his waist, with an external battery in a backpack to keep them running.



“Dude, the Democrats took the House. Good luck getting anything passed.” @CATVARTAIN, mocking President Trump after he tweeted that the

midterms were a “tremendous success,” despite Republicans losing control of the House of Representatives. Though Trump initially didn’t seem to get that a blue-leaning House was bad for the GOP, he later said he would take a “warlike posture” against any investigations.

@CHUCHIAZURIN, reacting to Ariana Grande’s “First Wives Club”inspired performance of her new single “thank u, next.” Though the singer has had a rough time lately, she was all smiles and laughs as she performed her new breakup anthem.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll want to keep in touch with someone who is out on his or her own — perhaps prematurely. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The rules are in place to help you more than hinder you — but this you already know, instinctively. There’s no room for interpretation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can address central concerns today, but you may not be able to silence the rumbling that is going on among those on the periphery. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Things are likely to develop in an unlikely fashion today; the more you expect, the more you are likely to be surprised, all day long.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Team up

with others who share your views and you can accomplish much at this time — but it all depends on your ability to share the spotlight.


ARIES (March 21-April 19) Not all issues focus on you — and today you’re likely to discover that a more generous view of things benefits yourself as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may find yourself at the center of something that is quite difficult to control. Instead of trying to do this, why not give it some room?

are likely to be far more complicated than any “yes” or “no” answer can resolve. You’ll want to dig deeper.

TODAY: Cooler air continues to filter in on light winds from the north. Still a relatively nice fall day, though, with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-50s. Skies turn partly to mostly cloudy again tonight as low pressure develops to our west, with showers possible toward morning. Lows drop to the mid-40s.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) News you receive today from afar takes you by surprise. You’ll want to examine past events from a different perspective. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) The difference between fact and fiction is likely to be quite blurry today. You can be confident that your views are valid.

Louis lucky his GF doesn’t read American news

Jason: Do I still get a plaque? “Get Out” producer Jason Blum was booed offstage Tuesday at the Israeli Film Festival in Beverly Hills, Calif., after criticizing President Trump. “Thanks to our president, antiSemitism is on the rise,” Blum said upon being given the festival’s Achievement in Film & Television Award. “Beverly Hills Pawn” star Yossi Dina then stepped onstage and tried to pull Blum away. “Well, this night went kinda haywire,” Blum tweeted afterward.

Louis C.K. confirmed Tuesday he is dating French comedian Blanche Gardin during a stand-up show in Paris, according to The Hollywood Reporter. C.K. delivered a 70-minute set at Le Theatre de L’oeuvre as part of an English-language show. “I’ve been dating this woman, and she’s French,” C.K. said during his set, acknowledging his relationship with Gardin. The French press had reported they were an item after the couple were recently spotted holding hands. The set marked the latest performance from C.K. as he attempts a comeback, having admitted to sexual misconduct last year following a wave of allegations. (EXPRESS)

Letitia opens up on her battle with depression

Report: Wilson hasn’t met newborn daughter

Letitia Wright told The Hollywood Reporter that her faith helped her overcome a bout of depression in 2015. “I was putting so much pressure on myself,” Wright recalled. “You get comfortable with the idea of thinking, maybe it’s OK to leave [Earth].” The “Black Panther” actress said a trip to a Bible study rescued her from that “very dark place.” (EXPRESS)

Owen Wilson hasn’t met his newborn daughter and isn’t interested in being a part of his third child’s life, Us Weekly reported Wednesday. Varunie Vongsvirates, Wilson’s ex-girlfriend, welcomed a baby girl named Lyla in October, but the actor reportedly did not contact the mother afterward. “This is a private matter, and it’s not appropriate to comment further,” Wilson’s representative told Us Weekly.

Recalling a party at which she was “depressed” by the behavior of a man she was dating, Munn said Foxx sensed why she was upset and left her a voicemail the next day. “It was so sweet,” Munn said. “He was like, ‘I never want to see you let any man make you feel that small again.’ ” (EXPRESS)
