Obama: I’ll Do What It Takes to Avoid Fiscal Cliff

Producing a Deal

Increasing number of Republicans say they’re ready to talk Washington

“It’s too important for Washington to screw this up.”

JEWEL SAMAD/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

The White House and a key congressional Democrat hinted at fresh concessions on taxes and cuts to Medicare and other government benefit programs Wednesday as bargaining with Republicans lurched ahead to avoid the yearend “fiscal cliff” that threatens to send the economy into a tailspin. Increasing numbers of rankand-file Republicans also said they were ready to give ground, a boost for House Speaker John Boehner and other party leaders who say they will agree to higher tax revenues as part of a deal if it also curbs benefit programs as a way to rein in federal deficits. “I’ll go anywhere and I’ll do whatever it takes to get this done,” President Barack Obama said as he sought to build pressure on Repub-

— PRE SIDENT BA R ACK OBA M A , SPEAKING WEDNESDAY AS HE SOUGHT TO BUILD PRESSURE ON REPUBLICANS TO ACCEPT HIS TERMS ON HOW TO AVOID THE YEAR-END FISCAL CLIFF

licans to accept his terms — a swift renewal of expiring tax cuts for all but the highest income earners. For all the talk, there was no sign of tangible progress on an issue that marks a first test for divided government since elections that assured Obama a second term in the White House while renewing Republican control in the House.

“It’s time for the president and Democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has,” Boehner said at a news conference in the Capitol. He, like Obama, expressed optimism that a deal could be reached. At the same time, he publicly disagreed with one GOP lawmaker, Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma,

For President Barack Obama and Republicans, the goal of the fiscal cliff talks is to produce a long-term deficit-cutting deal that will allow the cancellation of tax increases and spending cuts scheduled for the end of the year. While the obstacles are numerous, there are other political imperatives pushing the two sides toward an agreement. Unemployment benefits expire for some of the longterm jobless at the end of the year. Additionally, the government is expected to need an increase in borrowing authority early next year or face the possibility of a default. Any agreement on that is expected to raise the current $16.4 trillion debt level. (AP)

who said he was ready to go along with Obama’s plan to renew most but not all of the expiring income tax cuts. “It’ll hurt the economy” to raise rates for anyone, Boehner said. There were no face-to-face talks between the administration and lawmakers during the day, although the White House is dispatching Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and top legislative aide Rob Nabors to a series of sessions with congressional leaders Thursday.

Microsoft is trying to skewer Google as a lousy holiday shopping guide in its latest attempt to divert more traffic to its Bing search engine. The attack started Wednesday with a marketing campaign focused on a recent change in the way Google operates the part of its search engine devoted to shopping results. The revisions require merchants to pay Google to have their products listed in the shop-

Paying to Play Google doesn’t require websites to pay to be listed in its main search database. But someone who clicks on a Shopping-only tab will find results only by paying merchants. Google defends the move as a way to encourage merchants to provide more comprehensive information about what they’re selling. Google, like Microsoft, also accepts payments for ads that are triggered by specific search terms and appear to the right or on top of regular search results. (AP)

ping section. In its new ads, Microsoft Corp. contends the new approach betrays Google Inc.’s long-standing commitment to provide the most trustworthy results on the Web, even if it means forgoing revenue. To punctuate its point, Microsoft is warning consumers that they risk getting “scroogled” if they rely on

Google’s shopping search service. The message will be highlighted in TV commercials scheduled to run on NBC and CNN and newspaper ads in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. The blitz also will appear on billboards and online, anchored by a new website, Scroogled.com. (AP)

A moderate Republican senator, vital to any White House hopes of getting U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice confirmed as secretary of state, said Wednesday she couldn’t back any nomination until more questions are answered about the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya and Rice’s State Department role during the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya. In a fresh suggestion of eroding GOP support for Rice, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine emerged from a closed-door meeting with the ambassador voicing new criticism. Pressed on how she would vote if President Barack Obama names Rice to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Collins

Sen. John Kerry is angling to be the nation’s top diplomat by being, well, diplomatic. The longtime Massachusetts lawmaker has largely stayed quiet while President Barack Obama considers him for his next secretary of state.

And he’s defended his chief rival for the State Department post, Susan Rice, amid Republican criticism of her explanation of the deadly attack on Americans in Libya. (AP)

said, “I would need to have additional information before I could support her nomination.” Introducing another issue certain to be fodder for any confirmation battle, Collins said she

pressed Rice about security at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in 1998 when a truck bomb was set off outside the facility, killing more than 200 Kenyans and 12 Americans. At the White House, Obama called Rice “extraordinary” and said he couldn’t be more proud of the job she has done as U.N. ambassador. Cabinet members joined Obama in applauding Rice. Rice has emerged as the frontrunner for the top job at State, though Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., who was passed over for the job in 2008, is considered a strong alternative. In a clear message to the White House, Collins said Kerry would have no problem winning Senate confirmation. “I think John Kerry be an excellent appointment and would be easily confirmed by his colleagues,” Collins said.

‘The Highest Form of Protest’ Egypt’s top courts strike as standoff with Morsi escalates Cairo In an escalation of the tug-of-war between Egypt’s president and the powerful judiciary, judges in the country’s top courts went on strike Wednesday to protest Mohammed Morsi’s seizure of near absolute powers, while Islamists rushed to complete a new constitution, the issue at the heart of the dispute. The moves came a day after at least 200,000 protesters filled Cairo’s central Tahrir Square to denounce the decrees Morsi issued last week, which place him above oversight of any kind. Morsi, who took office in June as Egypt’s first freely elected president, says the decrees are necessary to protect the revolution that helped drive Hosni Mubarak from office last year as well as the nation’s transition to democracy. But in a sign the dispute may take a sharp turn, the Supreme Constitutional Court said that it will go ahead with plans to rule Sunday on whether to dissolve the assembly writing the new consti-

Complicating matters, the constitutional panel was rushing to wrap up its work, and members said a final draft could be completed as early as Thursday.

Speak Up About Bus Cuts Metro proposal would cut back night service on W6, W8 routes Washington The District’s representative on Metro’s Board of Directors will lead a public meeting Monday on a contentious proposal to cut back bus service in a Southeast Washington area where Metro says buses are routinely pelted with rocks and bricks. Muriel Bowser, the city’s Ward 4 Council member, said she is convening the meeting in Southeast to hear from riders who would be

affected and from police commanders and transit officials. The route change, one of many the transit agency has proposed for 2013, would end nighttime service on a stretch of the W6/W8 route, which begins at the Anacostia Metro station and covers several miles through Southeast. But D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, D, and other officials have said service should not be cut and that D.C. police need to step up their efforts to halt the attacks. “The last thing that we want to hear is that people think it’s unsafe to be on the bus,” Bowser said Monday night during one of Metro’s public hearings on the sys-

Shake-Up in Va. Governor’s Race tion created too many obstacles for us to overcome,” Bolling said in a statement. He said he also was concerned that deep divisions in the party could be created by a prolonged campaign between Cuccinelli and him.

“I intend to remain actively involved in the 2013 campaigns — perhaps … as a more independent voice. ” — LT. GOV. BILL BOLLING

STEVE HELBER/AP

Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling said Wednesday that he will not run for governor in 2013, citing the state party’s decision to choose its nominees through a convention instead of a statewide primary. Bolling’s decision leaves conservative Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli without major opposition for the GOP nomination at the June convention. It also means a likely showdown in next fall’s gubernatorial election between him and Terry McAuliffe, the longtime associate of former President Bill Clinton and the only Democrat to announce his candidacy so far. Bolling’s gubernatorial ambitions had been nurtured for years, since his election as lieutenant governor in 2005. Four years ago, he stepped aside for fellow Republican Bob McDonnell and won re-election in exchange for McDonnell’s support for Bolling’s gubernatorial bid in 2013. But that was predicated on the nomination being decided in a primary open to all Virginia voters, not a convention, which tend to be dominated by conservative GOP delegates. “For the past several months my campaign team has worked hard to restructure our campaign to effectively compete in the convention process. While we have made a great deal of progress, I reluctantly concluded that the decision to change the method of nomination from a primary to a conven-

Bill Bolling bowed out of a GOP run for governor, in part to avoid splitting his party.

The Top Contenders Terry McAuliffe, left, a former Democratic National Committee chairman and close friend of both former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is the lone Democrat in the race after announcing his candidacy this month. Bill Bolling’s decision on the GOP side leaves Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, right, facing only Tareq Salahi, a Virginia vintner and onetime reality television figure who gained fame by crashing a White House party three years ago with his then-wife, Michaele.

“The convention process would have forced Republican activists to take sides against their friends in local committees all across our state,” Bolling said. “The wounds that can develop from that type of process are often difficult to heal.” Bolling knew last summer that his prospects had dimmed substantially after the state GOP’s rulemaking central committee reversed a previous decision to hold a primary in favor of a convention. They took another hit earlier this month when Republican Mitt Romney’s defeat in the presidential race eliminated any prospect that McDonnell would leave the governor’s office early for a possible White House post, allowing Bolling to finish out McDonnell’s term and run next year as an incumbent. Bolling and McDonnell had both asked the GOP central committee to stick with its October 2011 vote to hold a primary next spring rather than a convention. BOB LEWIS (AP)

Cover Story

Abbas’ Last-Ditch Effort The Palestinian leader is poised to secure a symbolic victory at the U.N.

“It is a last-ditch effort because we believe the twostate solution is in jeopardy.”

Ramallah, West Bank — H A N A N A SHR AW I, A SENIOR PALESTINIAN OFFICIAL, ON MAHMOUD ABBAS’ BID FOR U.N. RECOGNITION OF THE PALESTINIANS

“Ultimately what we will see at the United Nations is diplomatic theater. It will in no way affect the realities on the ground.” — MARK REGE V, MOHAMMED BALLAS/AP

The expected U.N. vote Thursday to recognize a state of Palestine will be far more than symbolic — it could give the Palestinians leverage in future border talks with Israel and open the way for possible war crimes charges against Israel. The Palestinians want the 193-member General Assembly to accept “Palestine,” on the lands Israel occupied in 1967, as a nonmember observer state. They anticipate broad support. For Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the U.N. bid is a lastditch attempt to stay relevant as a leader after years of failed peace talks with Israel, at a time when his Islamic militant Hamas rivals are gaining ground. The U.S. and Israel have tried to block the quest for U.N. recognition of Palestine, saying it’s an attempt to bypass Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that broke down four years ago. The U.S. deputy secretary of state, William Burns, met with Abbas on Wednesday in New York, asking him to drop the idea and promising that President Barack Obama would act as a mediator in 2013, said Abbas aide Saeb Erekat. Abbas told Burns it was too late. Israel, meanwhile, appeared to back away from threats of drastic measures if the Palestinians get U.N. approval. Israel argues that Abbas is trying to dictate the outcome of border talks by going to the U.N., though the recognition request presented to the world body calls for a quick resumption of negotiations. Israel has said it is willing to resume talks without precondi-

Palestinian security officers rappel past a banner of President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank town of Jenin. Abbas is trying to bolster his position among Palestinians by spearheading a historic bid for recognition by the U.N. General Assembly.

NEED TO KNOW

What Is the ‘1967 Borders’ Issue?

Who Supports the Palestinian Effort?

The Palestinians say they need U.N. recognition of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, the lands Israel captured in 1967, to be able to resume negotiations with Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s predecessors accepted the 1967 lines as a basis for border talks that would include land swaps, but those talks never produced a deal. Netanyahu rejects the 1967 lines as a starting point while pressing ahead with settlement construction, leaving Mahmoud Abbas little incentive to resume negotiations.

The Palestinians expect that at least two-thirds of the 193 member states in the General Assembly will back them Thursday, including France, Spain, Austria, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Switzerland. China has also affirmed its support for the Palestinians, and Russia is expected to as well.

Who Does Not? The U.S. and Canada, staunch allies of Israel, plan to vote against the Palestinian bid. Germany, Britain, the Netherlands and Australia are all likely to abstain.

What Does the Bid Mean for Abbas? The vote comes at an important time for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. His Hamas rivals, who control Gaza, have gained popularity after holding their own during an Israeli offensive that aimed at stopping Gaza rocket fire earlier this month. Abbas was sidelined during the offensive, underscoring concerns that the deadlock in talks is weakening Palestinian pragmatists. Hamas has called talks with Israel a waste of time, but its leaders have voiced support for the U.N. bid recently. (AP)

AN ISRAELI GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN QUOTED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

tions, a position that government spokesman Mark Regev affirmed Wednesday. But Regev said that by going to the U.N., the Palestinians violate “both the spirit and the word of signed agreements to solve issues through negotiations.” Palestinian officials countered that their historic U.N. bid is meant to salvage a peace deal they say is being sabotaged by Israeli settlements. About half a million Israelis have settled on war-won land, and a construction stop is unlikely. U.N. recognition would also allow the Palestinians to seek membership in U.N. agencies and international bodies. Perhaps most significantly, it could open the door to a new push to join the International Criminal Court and seek an investigation into alleged war crimes by Israel. But if the Palestinians were to use their upgraded international status “as a tool to confront Israel in the international arena, there will be a response,” said an Israeli official.

The Redskins’ Pierre Garcon, who shined against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day at Cowboys Stadium, says he is happy he didn’t cut his season short.

Wideout says injury should not hinder him for rest of year Redskins

Coming off his five-catch, 93-yard performance last Thursday in Dallas, wide receiver Pierre Garcon said Wednesday he is increasingly confident he’ll be able to play the remainder of the Redskins’ games this season without needing season-ending surgery for a torn ligament near the second toe in his right foot. “I think I’m going to make it through the whole season,” Gar-

con said in the locker room at Redskins Park. “Hopefully nothing crazy happens. But I’ve been dealing with the pain for so long now, it’s only getting numb to it or getting used to it. It’s slowly going away. The surgery is not something I want to do. But if a few doctors say I need it, then I’ll probably do it. But if I don’t need it, I’m not getting it.” Garcon suffered the injury during the Redskins’ season-opening triumph at New Orleans (and played in only two of the team’s next eight games). At the time, he said he hoped to continue playing but that he and team officials might decide at some point that

surgery was necessary. He returned to the lineup for the Redskins’ 31-6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 18 at FedEx Field and had three catches. But he totaled only five receiving yards in that game. The Redskins weren’t certain that, with the quick turnaround, Garcon could play four days later on Thanksgiving, in a game on artificial turf. But he played extremely well, with a performance that included a dynamic 59-yard touchdown catch. “I just got the ball in my hand and then I just ran as hard as I could,” Garcon said Wednesday. “I think I gain an extra gear every time I get the ball. I didn’t really feel anything different. I was just out there playing football with a lot of adrenaline.” Garcon said he still feels pain in his foot every day. “Some days are better than others. Some days I do a lot more activity than others,” he said. “But it is getting better.” Garcon said he’s happy he didn’t cut short his season. “If I’d have gave up, that would hurt a lot more than the pain that I’m feeling right now,” he said. “These guys are my friends and we’re all depending on each other. “We need everybody in here to be Super Bowl champs, to make it to the playoffs and stuff like that.

After the club had president and CEO Kevin Payne depart for Toronto FC after 17 years and parted ways with Montenegrin midfielder Branko Boskovic following the most successful season in five years, D.C. announced that forward Josh Wolff has retired and will join the coaching staff on a permanent basis.

Wolff, 35, played for 14 years and finishes his MLS career with 80 goals and 49 assists. Wolff played brief ly for German side 1860 Munich in 2006 and 2007 before returning to MLS, where he played for the Chicago Fire and Kansas City Wizards before joining D.C. through the league’s reentry draft in 2010. “It’s been a fun ride and I have had a lot of great experiences over the years in the league, abroad, and with the national team,” Wolff said in a team release. “I’d like to thank everyone for the memories, advice, and direction over the years.” A former U.S. national team striker who played in the 2000

ACC to Add Louisville

Golf’s governing bodies, worried that players will turn to long putters as an advantage instead of a last resort, proposed a new rule Wednesday that would ban the putting stroke used by three of the past five major champions. The Royal & Ancient Golf Club and the U.S. Golf Association said the rule would not outlaw belly putters or broom-handle putters, only the way they are currently used. The proposed rule would make it illegal for golfers to anchor the club while making a stroke and not take effect until 2016. (AP)

Pull Up a Kitchen Chair Food is at the center of a new Smithsonian exhibit, and it’s sure to get you talking Exhibits

Exhibit Highlights

Microwaves Two microwave ovens are on view in the “Cook Today Tomorrow’s Way” section of the show. The larger, a 1955 Tappan, above — the first microwave oven made for home use — is a shiny silver box, an oversized version of what we use today. (It has one extra-antiquated detail: a small drawer to hold recipe cards.) “The microwave wasn’t just intended for making popcorn and heating coffee,” curator Paula Johnson says. “They were imagining you would make all of your meals in the microwave.” The other example of the thennew technology? Good luck figuring that out. “People really do not know what it is,” curator Cory Bernat says. It’s a 1976 Japanese-produced model (which was sold at J.C. Penney), and it’s triangular, with a door that slants downward and opens from the top. “People ask, ‘Is it some sort of weird typewriter?’ ” Johnson says.

Before Julia Child’s kitchen was moved from public view at the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History earlier this year, curators noticed something unusual occurring in front of it. “People would hang out there,” curator Paula Johnson says. “They would just strike up conversations w it h s t r a n ge r s a b out t he i r KitchenAid.” “More than in any other exhibition,” curator Rayna Green adds. “They’d stay longer and hang out with each other more.” Child’s kitchen reopens as part of the museum’s new “Food: Transforming the American Table 19502000” exhibition (which will run for at least two years). The curators hope to provide a wider context and larger setting in which to spark just those kinds of discussions. The kitchen, which the legend-

ary chef used at her home in Cambridge, Mass., from 1961 to 2000, is a great entry point for thinking about food and change in America in the second half of the 20th century. “We are looking at the various forces of change that affected how and what we eat,” Johnson says. “Julia Child herself was one big force of change.” The 3,800-square-foot exhibition space is filled with objects and images that represent the evolving role of food in our culture. Objects on display include home winemaking equipment used by an Italian immigrant family in the early to mid-1900s, a 1950 Krispy Kreme “ring king” doughnut-making machine, a circa-1963 Veg-o-Matic appliance (“It Slices! It Dices!”) and a copper bouillabaisse cauldron used by “Good Food movement” icon Alice Waters in the 1980s. Some of the items — immigrantintroduced bento boxes, basmati

rice, couscous, cilantro — are practically ubiquitous in American mainstream culture now. Others — yog u r t ma kers a nd “sou l food” cookbooks used among “counterculture” consumers in the 1970s — are coming back into vogue today. Though the most interesting pieces are arranged along the walls, curators hope visitors will gather in the center of the exhibition as well. That’s where they’ve set up a long, wooden “open table” surrounded by chairs. It’s an inviting space for visitors to kick back and chat about the show, cooking or family mealtime memories. There won’t be anything to eat, but there will be plenty of food for thought. K ATIE ABERBACH (E XPRESS)

Snacks The average couch potato probably never would guess that his favorite foods were the result of careful scientific study. A display on “Snack Engineering” makes that case, providing history on the development of Fritos, Pringles, Cheez Whiz and Gatorade — all of which were created between the 1950s and 1970s to serve a culture that was increasingly eating between meals and on the go. “I think about these as feats of technology, really,” curator Cory Bernat says. Cheez Whiz provided the solution to the question: How do you get cheese to melt evenly? Pringles were created in response to a desire to produce uniformly shaped potato chips that could fit into narrow packaging and be shipped nationwide. A patent drawing showing the chips’ distinctive curved shape and tubular packaging is on view alongside a late-1960s Pringles can, at left.

President Lincoln’s Cottage

ii According to reports of the time, Mary Lincoln held at least one séance at the cottage. (Two of the Lincolns’ sons had died by this time.)

YOU DON’T NEED OLD FURNITURE TO LEARN HISTORY

Abraham Lincoln had two homes while in office: the White House and this 34-room “cottage” — the word refers to the style, not size — on the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home, a haven for retired or disabled veterans. (It’s still in use, now called the Armed Forces Retirement Home.) Here the Lincoln family lived during the summer and early fall of 1862, ’63 and ’64, away from the heat and humidity of downtown. The president commuted three miles each way to work, in spite of attempts to kidnap or kill him. The house is largely empty of furniture and decoration, a choice that brings visitors closer to Lincoln. Stripped of history’s material

Translation: You’re Both Nuts

There are some fairly broad conclusions drawn about Americans, particularly our consumerism.

North Korea doesn’t get us and we don’t get them. A new play aims to close the gap.

The Story Sisters Junhee (Ruibo Qian) and Minjee (Jo Mei, left) attempt to flee North Korea for the U.S., but only Junhee makes it. She’s forced to deal with a completely unfamiliar world, full of strange words, strange people and unimaginable plenty. Minjee, back in North Korea, imagines what the wider world might be like and the danger her sister must be in.

When a North Korean woman in “You for Me for You” frets about “ruthless Americans,” the audience at a recent Woolly Mammoth performance tittered. Her seemingly comical fear makes a serious point. The play, about two peasant sisters trying to escape North Korea, demonstrates how we form misconceptions about the rest of the world, and how the world, once experienced, explodes those ideas. We spoke with playwright Mia Chung, whose parents emigrated from South Korea, about her approach.

SCOTT SUCHMAN

“I was interested primarily in looking at the mental shackles of people living in a closed society.”

How did you begin?

The question I led with was “Why hasn’t it fallen apart yet?” In the

late ’90s, when the famines happened, my father said, “Finally, it’s going to fall apart.” But it persisted! How did you research the scenes set in North Korea?

There’s not a lot of nuanced information that’s come out of there. I was interested primarily in look-

ing at the mental shackles of people living in a closed society.

If Mario Batali and Redman somehow had a love child, it would be Action Bronson. The 300-pound chef-turned-rapper from Queens is hilarious, vulgar and yet very polite. His foodie background (he attended culinary school and worked at the NYC restaurant his father owns) frequently peppers his flows. But these days, life is filled with different ingredients. About a year ago, Bronson — whose name, drawn from the ’80s blaxploitation vehicle “Action Jackson” and ’80s vigilante-film star Charles Bronson, hints at the vin-

Is that why all the American characters speak in an unintelligible mishmash at first?

I wanted to bring the audience into the act of decoding, to make them more fully inhabit a North Korean’s point of view. Often North Koreans are portrayed as simpletons. They seem so “other.” But there are people living with Stockholm syndrome and cognitive dissonance everywhere in the world.

And with two new studio albums due out next year, Bronson isn’t headed back behind the stove any time soon. Even at home. “I wake up every day and I don’t have to go to work in the kitchen,” he says. “At the restaurant, all the ingredients are there for you. There’s a big process of being here in your

It just doesn’t work.” Not to worry. Bronson has been known to toss steak-dinner gift certificates from the stage while he raps. And that live-large attitude is setting him up for a big launch. “I’m going to continue to do what I do,” he says. “If someone wants to press a button and make me a superstar, they could do that right now. All it needs is a co-sign.” CLINTON YATES (E XPRESS)

FILM PREVIEW

Here’s to the Journey

Let’s get a few things out of the way: Soylent Green is people, Rosebud is a sled, and Macbeth gets killed

by Macduff because Macduff’s mom had a C-section and he’s therefore not of woman born. Spoilers aren’t spoilers if the information is already out there. This winter will bring a bunch of films with knowable endings, but the point of these movies is the journey, not the destination. K RISTEN PAGE-K IRBY (E X PRES S) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

West of Memphis RELEASE DATE: JAN. 25

RELEASE DATE: DEC. 14

It would seem that Peter Jackson is busy enough, but the “Hobbit” director found time to produce this documentary about the “West Memphis Three,” a trio of teens falsely convicted of Satanic-style murders. They served 18 years for the crime but were released in 2011. Way to spoil the ending, actual events.

We’re not sure how EXACTLY this will end, since this is the first of three films director Peter Jackson based on one book. But “Unexpected”? We all know what’s coming: Walking. And dwarfs.

The Impossible RELEASE DATE: DEC. 21

Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts star in this film about a real-life family that makes it through the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. So, they all live! After enduring a lot of tsunami-related horribleness, though.

Safe Haven RELEASE DATE: FEB. 14 (DUH)

It’s based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, which means there will be a young, beautiful couple in love. Other characters to expect: a wise curmudgeon and some sort of fatal disease. We encourage laying bets on what said disease will be (please be more specific than “cancer,” as it’s nearly ALWAYS cancer).

Zero Dark Thirty RELEASE DATE: JAN. 11

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow follows up “The Hurt Locker” with a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. President Obama spoiled the ending of this one last year. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: WARNER BROS.; SONY PICTURES CLASSICS; RELATIVITY MEDIA; COLUMBIA PICTURES; SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT

Chefs’ Specials A new cookbook reveals the stories behind some of D.C.’s beloved dishes Behind every great Washington-area chef is a great tale: a childhood memory, a professional U-turn, a reality-TV competition, an unswerving love for the community. That’s evident in Beth Kanter’s “Washington, DC Chef’s Table” ($25, Lyons Press), a new, photorich cookbook that shares histories, personal stories and recipes from more than 50 local chefs. It’s no tourist guidebook; Kanter is a longtime Washingtonian, so she focused on locally beloved dishes such as Good Stuff Eatery’s Prez Obama burger and the CapMac food truck’s Cheez-It-topped mac and cheese. With photographer Emily Pearl Goodstein (another local), Kanter shares the secrets behind some of the city’s most iconic dishes and dining destinations. K ATIE ABERBACH (E X PRES S)

What was your goal with this book? Right before I started “Washington, DC Chef’s Table,” I had just finished my second book, “Food Lovers’ Guide to Washington, D.C.” I had uncovered all these interesting stories that went with the food here in D.C. I wanted to give a voice to that personal aspect. I also really wanted to show the whole breadth of the food experience in the city. One nontraditional food source in the book is Miriam’s Kitchen [a nonprofit that provides meals and services for the homeless]. I felt I couldn’t write either of these books about food and not include something about the fact that there are people who are hungry in this city. And the act of feeding someone should be remembered when you’re looking at a city’s food culture. Also, Miriam’s Kitchen

What were some of the chefs’ personal stories that resonated with you? The last interview and photo shoot we d id for t he book was at Beau Thai. The restaurant is painted this pretty Kanter purple color, and on the walls are these huge black-and-white photos on canvases of [chef Aschara Vigsittaboot’s] house where she grew up in Thailand and the kitchen where she learned to cook. The chef was telling me this story while standing under this picture of her kitchen. It seemed to bring the whole process home. I also loved speaking to Kaz [chef Kazuhiro Okochi] at Kaz Sushi Bistro. When he was in third grade, there were recipes on the back of the menu he brought home from his school cafeteria. He decided to make a flan from it for his mother for her birthday. When friends or family ask you for dining recommendations, what’s your go-to? If you’re goi ng to celebrate something, Blue Duck Tavern, to me, never disappoints. I love that they grow some of the ingredients outside on their little city patio. The Source is also a great place to celebrate something. Estadio is always wonderful and fun. And H Street NE is a fantastic place to explore now.

EMILY PEARL GOODSTEIN

In terms of bakeries, you decided to feature Baked and Wired … but not Georgetown Cupcake, huh? Georgetown Cupcake just came out with a wonderful cookbook, so I think they already have a good platform for their recipes. And Baked and Wired’s cream peach pie [the recipe featured in the book] is beautiful, a wonderful rustic-style pie.

YUM BEEF SALAD From Beau Thai, 1700 New Jersey Ave. NW; 202-536-5636, Beauthaidc.com

Ingredients 1 pound flank steak 2 cups soy sauce 2 cups vegetable oil 6 cherry tomatoes sliced in half 1 cucumber, peeled, sliced in half, lengthwise, and then sliced into 1⁄4-inch slivers 2 medium shallots, sliced 1 ⁄2 medium white onion, sliced into 1⁄4-inch pieces 1 small carrot, peeled and julienned 2 tablespoons nam prik pao (Thai chili paste in oil — sometimes called Thai chili jam — available at Asian markets and online) 2 tablespoons fish sauce 4 tablespoons lime juice 1 ⁄2 tablespoon sugar Garnish of green onion, sliced, and cilantro

Makes Six Servings Marinate the flank steak for at least two hours before cooking it by placing the steak in a baking dish, pouring the soy sauce and vegetable oil over it, and placing it in the refrigerator. After the steak has marinated, grill the meat to the desired temperature (at Beau Thai, the dish is served medium-rare) and slice into bite-size pieces. Mix the vegetables together with the flank steak. To make the dressing, combine the nam prik pao, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and the meat and toss. Garnish with green onion and cilantro.

Milkshakes & Meatloaf

Eater’s Digest

It’s not often that you can consume a history lesson along with your steak dinner. That’s why I’m a fan of the Capital Countdown menu at Charlie Palmer Steak (101 Constitution Ave. NW; 202-547-8100). Each week through January, the restaurant is serving a dinner special ($28-$35) in honor of a president from the past 60 years, usually featuring his favorite food. This week (through Saturday), the dish is in Lyndon B. Johnson’s name: filet mignon. By Katie Starting Sunday and Aberbach running through Dec. 8, the special is in honor of Richard M. Nixon: beef Wellington. The “Nixon” led me to some amusing historical trivia. As I learned from executive chef Jeffrey Russell (and my own research), beef Wellington was one of Nixon’s favorite dishes. The English-born meal traditionally consists of tenderloin that is covered in pate and a mixture of mushrooms, wrapped in dough and baked. It was trendy in the U.S. during the ’60s and ’70s, and Nixon is said to have served it at all of his state dinners. (Can you imagine a president getting away with that repetition today?) Russell gives the Wellington a creative, modern update, simply grilling the beef and topping it with a crispy layer of pastry, a dense knob of foie gras and truffles. Mushrooms and potatoes are served on the side. No amount of research can tell us whether Nixon would have approved of this significant change. But I’d like to think he would have resigned himself to the fact that this is a better beef Wellington. Read Katie’s column every other week here and at Expressnightout.com.

At Eric and Ian Hilton’s Satellite Room, boozy milkshakes outsell beer. A plate of meatloaf, right, evokes warm memories.

night-life entrepreneur. The menu, executed by chef de cuisine Moises Guzma n, is long on burgers and tacos (go for the zippy cubed skirt steak swaddled in a corn tortilla). Among the dishes that can be ordered as late as 3 a.m. on weekends are a vegetarian potpie, huevos rancheros and chicken-fried

PAUL’s Sprawl French bakery chain PAUL opened its fourth D.C. location last week in the shops at 2000 Penn (2000 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; 202-524-4655, Paul-usa.com). The 3,300-square-foot space filled with tufted furniture and velvet seats is the city’s most lavish PAUL location, with plenty of space in which to spread out and settle in for afternoon tea or an oversized macaron.

The dish that tugs at this Midwesterner’s heartstrings is grill-striped meatloaf, served in two thick slabs with gravy-filled mashed potatoes and bright green beans. Perfect diner food, the plate reminds me to call home. TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Eric and Ian Hilton have produced, among other hits, a swank watering hole, a British tavern and a French bistro. In October, the brothers behind the Gibson, Brixton and Chez Billy added another line to their ever-expanding portfolio: the Satellite Room, a hipster diner located next to the 9:30 Club in Shaw. Car ved from a former warehouse owned by the music venue, the Satellite Room finds funky art splashed across exposed br ick wa l ls, For m ica t ables and a long bar illuminated by the restaurant’s name in neon.

It’s the holiday season — and that includes Repeal Day, Dec. 5. In honor of the date when Prohibition ended, Jack Rose (2007 18th St. NW; 202-5887388, Jackrosediningsaloon.com) is serving ‘20s-inspired dishes such as steamed quail buns and lobster thermidor. Get to know the saloon’s massive whiskey collection at its Repeal Day party Dec. 5 ($20, 10 p.m.-1 a.m.).

If you’re the type of person who gets burned out from a day of holiday shopping, plan to end your next outing at Sushi Rock (1900 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington; 571-312-8027, sushirockdc.com). Now through Dec. 23, the restaurant is offering $1 carafes of sake, left, to each customer who brings in a receipt showing his or her present purchases. Finally, a gift for the frazzled gifter.

Where Fabulous Lives

IT’S THE SEASON FOR CHARLES DICKENS, and you could do worse than Olney Theatre Center’s one-man production of the classic “A Christmas Carol.” Local actor Paul Morella, who also wrote the adaptation, stars as Ebenezer Scrooge — and all the other characters.

It’s that time of year again, when musicians dust off

holiday classics in an effort to soundtrack your seasonal celebrations. And nothing gets people in the holiday spirit quite like the sound of sleigh bells, songs about Santa Claus or the umpteenth rendition of “Silent Night.” With that in mind, here’s a sampling of this year’s batch of holiday-themed, musical stocking stuffers. (AP/E X PRES S)

Slinging Arrows Arrows are trending on TV. Crossbows fire regularly on “The Walking Dead” and “Revolution.” But really, the hot spot for TV arrows is the new CW series “Arrow,” about a vigilant archer (Wednesdays, 8 p.m.). “Arrow” is the superhero identity of spoiled rich kid Oliver Queen, who was shipwrecked on an island where he sculpted his abs, learned Russian and perfected the art of bow-and-arrowing. Back at home in By Marc Starling City, he dons a Silver green hoodie — and no one recognizes him even though you can see his nose and mouth — and shoots people who betrayed him or his dad or something. Plot clarity is not “Arrow’s” strong suit. Why is “Arrow” a hit? My theory: First: Arrows are silent, deadly … and sustainable! After piercing someone with an arrow, you simply pull it out, wipe it off and reuse. Second reason: The dialogue! Mentor to Arrow: “You want survive this place bird not last thing you kill.” Arrow to confidant: “I have to be the person I need them to see me as.” To paraphrase Shakespeare, we’re outrageously fortunate that the writers are slinging such hilariously bad verbal arrows. Read Marc’s previous columns at: expressnightout.com/muse

CeeLo Green “CEELO’S MAGIC MOMENT” CeeLo Green is having a pop culture moment, but he can’t sustain the magic throughout this uneven album of Christmas songs. The opening track, “What Christmas Means to Me,” kicks things off with a flourish of horns and keyboards, but by the time Kermit the Frog appears for “All I Need Is Love” and Straight No Chaser joins him for “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” you’ll be hitting the skip button. In between there’s a decent duet with fellow “The Voice” judge Christina Aguilera on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

Lady Antebellum

“ON THIS WINTER’S NIGHT”

Various Artists

Lady Antebellum gave us a Christmas tease two years ago with “A Merry Little Christmas,” an EP that had only a handful of tracks. On their first full-length holiday album, “On This Winter’s Night,” they show there’s more where that came from, offering plenty of holiday cheer with their trademark gorgeous harmonies, interwoven with beautiful renditions of holiday staples. The trio puts its unique stamp on songs like “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” turning Mariah Carey’s upbeat classic into a lovely, soulful slow groove; do Donny Hathaway proud on “This Christmas”; and give an emotional, stirring version of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”

“Holidays Rule” features classic Christmas tunes interpreted by indie rockers such as the Shins, Rufus Wainwright, the Civil Wars and fun. Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney offers a warm, jazzy take on “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire),” while the Shins’ “Wonderful Christmastime” hearkens to the Beach Boys’ sunny sound. And Wainwright, with Sharon Van Etten, turns in a sultry version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” that makes listeners want to cuddle by the fireplace.

“HOLIDAYS RULE”

Laurie Berkner

Various Artists

“A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS: 25 YEARS BRINGING JOY TO THE WORLD” This marks the silver anniversary for the series that began in 1987 to benefit the Special Olympics. Since then, it’s become one of the most successful charities in recording history, generating more than $100 million for the organization. Standout performances include Cheap Trick redoing “I Want You to Want Me” as “I Want You for Christmas,” the crooning of Michael Buble on “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” and a live“Christmas Song” by the Dave Matthews Band.

“A LAURIE BERKNER CHRISTMAS” If you have kids under the age of 5, this is probably the only Christmas album you need this year. Never let it be said that this mother doesn’t know her audience. There are 15 tracks here, including three originals. Every song is simple, melodic and sung with an infectious joy that the preschool set immediately appreciates. The best feature children singing along, like “Santa’s Coming to My House Tonight.” There are also a few traditional holiday songs for kids such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” ‘’Frosty the Snowman” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Each features simple beats, a sing-song cadence and even a muted trombone or two.

Rod Stewart

“MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY” There’s not a dentist office in America that won’t be piping this album into its waiting room this holiday season. And that’s not a good thing, considering it comes from the man who gave us “Stay With Me,” ‘’Hot Legs” and “Young Hearts.” Rod Stewart’s first Christmas album is so safe, so tame and so unimaginative that it sounds like 100 other Christmas albums before it. There’s literally not one truly memorable — or even halfway engaging — arrangement on this disc, despite a roster of all-star talent that lends a hand, including Mary J. Blige and Michael Buble.

Blake Shelton “CHEERS, IT’S CHRISTMAS” Blake Shelton’s new Christmas album is full of mellow, tasteful renditions of holiday classics and packed with featured performers. His wife, Miranda Lambert, appears on “Jingle Bell Rock,” and her trio Pistol Annies lends a hand on “Blue Christmas.” Country legend Reba McEntire shows up on “Oklahoma Christmas.” The earnestness reaches a peak with an appearance by Shelton’s mother, Dorothy Shackleford, on “Time for Me to Come Home.”

Staying ‘True’ to Herself Album Review Solange’s new seven-track EP, “True,” should help the singer find her spot in the music world outside of sister Beyonce’s immense shadow. The EP follows 2008’s “Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams,” a wonderfully crafted retro-soul adventure. Solange continues with that sound on “True,” collaborating with British musician Devonte Hynes. The lead single and opening

track, “Losing You,” kicks off things terrifically with its odd (but amazing) beat and Solange’s dreamy vocals. Each song flows easily into the next, making the EP addictive.

Solange’s “True,” her first album since 2008, takes listeners on a retro-soul adventure.

At times, Solange, 26, is a vocal tease: She starts songs lightly and often adds enjoyable riffs near the end of the tracks. That’s especially true on “Lovers in the Parking Lot,” and it’s a voice worth listening to. MESFIN FEK ADU (AP)

These Metrobus routes are now MetroExtra routes! 16F Columbia Pike — Buses will serve stops every 10-15 minutes during the A.M. and P.M. rush. 16Y Columbia Pike — Buses will serve stops every six minutes during the A.M. rush and every eight minutes during the P.M. rush. Also, buses will start earlier in the A.M. rush and run later in the P.M. rush. 28X Leesburg Pike — Buses will serve stops every 15 minutes between Mark Center and West Falls Church station and every 30 minutes between West Falls Church station and Tysons Corner.

You Don’t Know Jack ‘It’s Not You, It’s Brie’ cuts through the fat of cheese culture Book Review Certain corners of the food world accumulate cranky high priests and priestesses, full of solemn proclamations and self-serious warnings about the correct way to make, buy or describe the things we love. Start a conversation about wine or coffee with the wrong person and get ready for a lecture packed with pseudo-science, judgmental snobbery and person-

al observations passed off as industry gospel. Cheese fanatics can be as bad as any other kind, and many a tedious tome has exacerbated the situa-

tion, casting drab shadows where sunlight belongs. And then there are books like “It’s Not You, It’s Brie: America’s Unique Culture of Cheese” ($19, Perigee) by Kirstin Jackson. It elegantly wedges through the tiresome jargon and pomp of cheese culture. Wielding simile and metaphor like a pair of nunchucks (she compares one strong cheese to “a mom whose kid was just bullied” and another to an odoriferous “workout T-shirt”), Jackson leads the reader into the live culture of American cheese in a manner so painless as to be actively pleasur-

able. Her approach is to quickly and clearly define a broad type of cheese, such as Alpine or Pasta Filata, and then illuminate three specific cheeses within that class. In the process, she shares cheesemaker biographies, farm descriptions, animal stories, pairings, tasting notes and recipes. The information is delivered with wit, economy and precision, and the author never falls back on lazy generalizations. Instead, these chapters are backed by reportage and a deep library of tastes and insights that make for a sharp snapshot of the current domestic cheese scene in all its diverse and anarchic glory.

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings

Never be cold again I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE ® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE ® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Donʼt be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ® s). EdenPURE ® is not just the bestselling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE ® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE ® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until itʼs absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger.

How it works:

CUTAWAY VIEW

Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.

1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp. 2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license.

Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

PERSONAL

MODEL 750

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a super-safe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE ® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. Thatʼs a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE ® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. Thatʼs American engineering at its best! The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra mon-

ey in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE ® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. Thatʼs why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE ® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE®. You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ʼs “bonewarming” infrared heat. The Health Secret is in the Copper

EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isnʼt ordinary. Itʼs 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room. How to Order During our 2013 introduction you are eligible for a $202 DISCOUNT PLUS FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING FOR A TOTAL SAVINGS OF $229 ON THE EDENPURE® MODEL 750 AND A $175 DISCOUNT PLUS FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING FOR A TOTAL SAVINGS OF $192 O N T H E E D E N P U R E ® PERSONAL HEATER.

Liz Lemon is getting 8:00 married, and you’re invited. Fans of “30 Rock” might have assumed that Lemon, the harried TV producer played by Tina Fey, would ride out the series’ seventh and final season as a perennial bachelorette unlucky in love. But tonight, Lemon will wed boyfriend Criss Chross (played by guest star James Marsden), a Peter Pan-ish would-be entrepreneur. Is this a match made in heaven? The wedding invitation says, “Whatever. It’s no big whoop.” Typical Lemon. FR A ZIER MOORE (AP) NBC

“As little more than a reality TV star, it was a surprise [Melissa] Rycroft beat huge names such as [Emmitt] Smith, [Apollo] Ohno and [Shawn] Johnson.”

“As far as I’m concerned, Plan B, otherwise known as ‘the morning after’ pill, is one of the best pregnancy prevention inventions for women ever. We live in a society where abortion and reproductive rights are being whittled away at daily, with decreasing options for women, and, yes, girls, to have control over their pregnancy decisions.”

“So why do it? Because they could, of course. Which is exactly why so many people do so many things with technology. And it looks neat. Does any other reason really matter?”

— MARK FRANCESCUTTI AT POP

— PUNDITMOM.COM comments on news that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that emergency contraception be available to teens, per a release Monday.

— MATT BUCHANAN AT BUZZFEED.COM tries to rationalize why the Plastics Revolution made a music video for their song “Invasion” composed entirely of Instagram photos.

CULTUREBLOG.DALLASNEWS.COM

found Rycroft’s win on “Dancing With the Stars: All Stars” Tuesday night to be an upset.

“Somebody “I want to say it’s complicated. please invite Leto over But the truth Jared for late-night is its not. It’s ... cold cuts — the hilarious! Well guy hasn’t eaten in almost done Army. a month.” Well done.” — COMMENTER SIR AT ARLNOW.COM reacts to the story of a goat found tied up on a median in Crystal City. It was later taken to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, where it was claimed. The U.S. Naval Academy’s mascot is a goat named Bill.

— JENNIFER VINEYARD AT VULTURE.COM was shocked to see the actor so skinny at the IFP Gotham Awards in New York. Leto said he is playing a transsexual woman in his next movie role, hence the dramatic change in appearance.

DIFFICULT

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may be able to control those who refuse to be controlled better than most — but you must know that the odds are not with you! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may not understand the issues facing you, but if you follow your instincts, you can surely acquit yourself well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Don’t let another’s ignorance get to you; you must be patient with those who do not know as much as you do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Why engage in an argument with someone who is ill-equipped to do the same? Now is no time to waste your energy in such a way. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Difficulties you encounter let you understand the plight of another — and that, in turn, will let you know what you can do to help.

Yesterday’s Solution

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) What lies ahead may not be clear, but you’ll have the sense that what you want is somewhere out there in front of you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’re waiting to get started with something big, but a member of your team may not be working at the same pace and must catch up first. CANCER (June 21-July 22) What you have to offer cannot be equaled by anyone else at this time — but this is no reason for you to become cocky or overconfident.
