Boehner Rejects Fiscal Cliff Offer

White House wants $1.6T in tax hikes, funds to aid jobless

Backstory

“Unfortunately, many Democrats continue to rule out sensible spending cuts that must be part of any significant agreement,” Speaker John Boehner said Thursday.

Obama also wants Congress to approve at least $50 billion in fresh spending to boost the economy next year as part of a deal to avert the year-end fiscal cliff. The offer produced a withering response from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, after a closed-door

Panel Backs Email Privacy Bill Washington Over objections from law enforcement officials, the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved legislation that would require police to obtain a search warrant from a judge before they can review a person’s emails or other electronic communications. The bill passed Thursday makes it slightly more difficult for the government to access the content of a consumer’s emails and private files from Google, Yahoo, Facebook and other Internet providers. Under the current law, the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act, a warrant is needed only for emails less than 6 months old. The full Senate is expected to vote on the legislation next year.

At issue is a bipartisan desire to prevent the wholesale expiration of Bush-era tax cuts and the simultaneous implementation of acrossthe-board spending cuts. To avoid the fiscal cliff, President Barack Obama and Congress are hoping to reduce future deficits by as much as $4 trillion in a decade, cancel the tax increases and automatic spending cuts and expand the government’s ability to borrow beyond the current limit of $16.4 trillion.

In exchange, the officials said, President Barack Obama will support an unspecified amount of spending cuts this year, to be followed by legislation in 2013 producing savings of as much as $400 billion from Medicare and other benefit programs over a decade.

Bradley Manning Takes the Stand Soldier in WikiLeaks case says he thought he would die in brig

Meanwhile ... A military judge accepted early Thursday the terms under which Pfc. Bradley Manning, at left, would plead guilty to eight charges for sending classified documents to WikiLeaks. Col. Denise Lind’s ruling doesn’t mean the pleas have been formally accepted, but Lind approved the language of the offenses. Manning made the offer as a way of accepting responsibility. Government officials have not said whether they would continue prosecuting him for the other 14 counts he faces. (AP)

Fort Meade, Md. An Army private charged in the biggest security breach in U.S. history testified Thursday that he felt like a doomed, caged animal after he was arrested in Baghdad on charges of sending classified information to WikiLeaks. Pfc. Bradley Manning testified on the third day of a pretrial hearing at Fort Meade, outside Baltimore. His lawyers are seeking dismissal of all charges, contending his pretrial confinement

in a Quantico, Va., Marine Corps brig was needlessly harsh. “I remember thinking I’m going to die,” Manning said under questioning by defense attorney David Coombs. “I just thought I was going to die in that cage. And that’s how I saw it — an animal cage.” Manning is trying to avoid trial in the WikiLeaks case. He argues that he was punished enough when he was locked up alone in a small cell for nearly nine months and had to sleep naked for several nights. The military contends the treatment was proper, given Manning’s classification then as a maximumsecurity detainee who posed a risk of injury to himself or others. DAVID DISHNEAU (AP)

U.N. Embraces Palestinian State Abbas finds success in quest for symbolic acknowledgement United Nations The United Nations voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recognize a Palestinian state, a long-sought victory for the Palestinians but an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the United States. The resolution upgrading the Palestinians’ status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations was approved by a more than twothirds majority of the 193-member world body — a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions. A Palestinian flag was quickly unfurled on the floor of the General Assembly, behind the Palestinian delegation. Real independence, however, remains an elusive dream until the Palestinians negotiate a peace deal with the Israelis, who warned that the General Assembly action will only delay a lasting solution. Israel still controls the West Bank, east Jerusalem and access to Gaza, and it accused the Palestinians of bypassing talks with the campaign to upgrade their U.N. status. The United States immediately criticized the historic vote. “Today’s

Opposition: Regime Blacks Out Internet in Syria Beirut Internet services were down across Syria on Thursday as rebels and government troops waged fierce battles.

The government denied that the Internet was down nationwide but offered conflicting reasons for what it said were only regional outages. The blackout, which two U.S.-

based companies that monitor online connectivity confirmed as nationwide outages, is unprecedented in Syria’s 20-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad.

Regime forces have suffered a string of tactical defeats in recent weeks, losing air bases and a hydroelectric dam, and the Internet outage may be an attempt by the government to dull any rebel offensives by hampering communications. Still, Syrian state TV says the blackout was caused by a technical failure and affected only some provinces and that technicians were trying to fix the problem. The progovernment Al-Ikhbariya station, meanwhile, quoted the information minister as denying the government was behind the blackout. (AP)

Jubilant Palestinians rallied Thursday and crowded outdoor screens and television sets at home in the West Bank to watch the United Nations vote on granting them, at least formally, what they have long yearned for — a state of their own.

After the vote, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the U.N. move violated past agreements between Israel and the Palestinians and that Israel would act accordingly, without elaborating what steps it might take. Thursday’s vote also came on the same day, Nov. 29, that the U.N. General Assembly in 1947 voted to recognize a state in Palestine, with the jubilant revelers then Jews. EDITH M. LEDERER (AP)

Saddle Up, D.C.! Bicyclists measure their performance in revolutions per minute. So does that make them revolutionary? It sure seems like it at BicycleSPACE, the Mount Vernon Square shop that’s launched an advocacy wing called the Assembly. “We won’t stop until D.C. is the best cit y for cycling, period,” owner Phil Koopman proclaimed at the group’s kickoff meeting Nov. 14. And they won’t look like the typical bike boosters either, said Koopman, who’s trying to build a broader constituency for cycling by promoting a fun approach to policy change. No spandex was on display at the event, which featured funny videos, a talk-show-style interview with Jonathon Kass (from D.C. Council member Tommy Wells’ office) and an audience-participation segment called “What Rings Your Bell?” The

crowd of about 30 folks split into small groups to discuss the issues and brainstorm solutions. I found myself eavesdropping on Nicole Donnelly, a Southwest resident who already has one bike advocacy project under her belt. Annoyed by motorists making U-turns through the dedicated bike lanes on Pennsylvania Avenue, she helped organize a BicycleSPACEbacked protest last month. Cyclists rode back and forth on the street covered in signs, handed out safety info and promoted a petition to get something done about the problem. Flash forward to this week: Mayor

Vincent Gray issued an emergency ruling that the turns — which have caused nearly every accident on that street in the past two years — are illegal. For her next challenge, Donnelly has a dif ferent t a rget i n m i nd: “My l at e s t i s s ue is unsafe cyclists: n i nja s, sa l mon s, u n sa fe pa s ser s.” Maybe they’d behave bet ter w it h more appealing bike accommodations?   Autumn Saxton-Ross, who works for D.C.’s Department of Health, suggested to Donnelly that they emphasize the greater good when asking for lanes and other facilities. “Some people couldn’t care less about biking but want their kids to have a safe walk to school. We need to wrap it all together,” Saxton-Ross said, not i n g t h at t he de p a r t me nt is “finally getting more involved in promoting active transportation.” (One proposal being considered: c h a n g i n g t he c it y ’s d r i v i n g test to include questions about bikes.)  After the groups took turns sharing their thoughts, there was a vast list of ideas taped to the wall. Suggested projects included cleaning up trails, creating funny viral videos to highlight problem areas and making their presence known by holding bike-lane-only group rides during rush hour. My favorite? Putting stickers that say “I parked in a bike lane” on offending vehicles.  “None of these are things we don’t want to do,” said Koopman, who’d like to try to tackle at least one project a month going forward. “The focus isn’t decided by us, but by the people who want to go out and do stuff.”  And what they want to do is bike.

Gay Marriage Close in Md. Licenses available as early as next week for January weddings Maryland court clerks can begin accepting applications for samesex marriage licenses immediately and issue them as soon as Dec. 6 as long as they specify that the licenses don’t take effect until Jan. 1, Attorney General Doug Gansler wrote in a legal opinion Thursday. Gansler also noted in t he 19-page opinion that marriage ceremonies may be performed starting Jan. 1, when the law is scheduled to take effect. While Maryland’s same-sex marriage law was approved by voters earlier this month, there were questions about how the law would go into effect, because Jan. 1 is a holiday when courts would be closed. Technically, Gansler says clerks may begin issuing marriage licens-

es after the law is formally proclaimed to have been approved by the voters, an action Gov. Martin O’Malley is expected to take on Dec. 6. Clerks of court then may begin issuing marriage licenses, if they bear a Jan. 1 effective date. Gansler also noted that a clerk of court can choose not to issue licenses until Jan. 2.

“For instance, a circuit court in one jurisdiction may anticipate a high volume of applications from couples wanting to marry on Jan. 1, 2013, and may wish to use the time before then to spread out what would otherwise be an unmanageable administrative burden,” Gansler wrote. “Other jurisdictions may determine that such advance processing is not necessary in order to issue licenses promptly after the effective date. We believe the legislative scheme allows for this type of administrative flexibility.” The attorney general also wrote that if a clerk of court issues a license earlier than Dec. 30, but with a Jan. 1 effective date, the provisions of a 48-hour waiting period are satisfied. He noted that samesex couples who have already been married in a state where it was legal to do so before Jan. 1, 2013, cannot get a license and marry in Maryland, as long as the outof-state marriage remains intact.

Just Call Him ‘Costco Joe’ To help D.C. welcome its first Costco, Biden picks up a pie, TV — and hugs

SUSAN WALSH/AP

“The Vice President and I have the same motto when it comes to Costco shopping: ‘I’m looking for Pies’ #Biden” — @DONK IMSAYS

“#Biden is attending the grand opening of a Costco in DC. Seriously? Where’s #Obama, the new Yogiberry in Reston?” — @SBA ILE Y3558

Biden also held an impromptu news conference at the store to discuss the fiscal cliff, urging lawmakers to extend middle-class tax cuts before Christmas to spur consumer confidence. “I think it’s important Congress acts now, I mean right now,” he said. On Wednesday, Costco said it will spend $3 billion to pay a special dividend of $7 per share next month ahead of higher tax rates that may kick in come January, if Congress and the president can’t reach a compromise to avoid the fiscal cliff. At the end of his 45-minute visit, Biden thanked reporters for shopping with him. Then, looking down at his overstuffed cart, he joked, “Now you know why my wife doesn’t let me shop alone.” (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)

Caption Contest! What’s the woman with Joe Biden thinking in that top photo? What’s he pondering amid a plethora of pies? Send your captions to @WaPoExpress with the hashtag #readexpress and #costcojoe. We’ll run our favorites next week.

Bipartisan Appeal Generally, the donations of Costco employees skew heavily Democratic. But the data suggest Costco’s shoppers tilt Republican. And in September, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, discussed their affections for Costco with “Fox News Sunday.” Romney said that his wife buys him shirts there. “We both love Costco,” Ann Romney said. (E XPRESS)

SUSAN BIDDLE/TWP

Vice President Joe Biden embarked on a shopping spree Thursday at the District’s first Costco on its opening day. Biden, who f lashed a store membership card as he entered the retailer, said consumer confidence is growing — as demonstrated by the huge crowd at the gleaming new store in Northeast Washington. “I’m looking for pies,” Biden announced as he began shopping, helped by Costco employee Ivey Stewart, who was steering his shopping cart around the store in Fort Lincoln, near the border with Maryland. He was later surrounded by shoppers and employees eager to shake hands, take photos and even hug the vice president. Biden’s cart held, among other things, flowers, children’s books, fire logs, a 32-inch Panasonic TV and a large apple pie. The books, he said, were for a Delaware charity that his wife, Jill, had started. A White House official said the Bidens had been Costco members in the past. They reactivated their memberships Wednesday, paying a $55 membership fee and receiving new cards. Biden was joined at the store by Costco CEO Craig Jelinek and cofounder Jim Sinegal, who were at the grand opening ceremony earlier in the day. Costco is opening at least three stores in the Washington area, and Sinegal said the company was “looking forward to a reasonably good Christmas,” noting that sales were up 7 percent over last year in stores that had been open for a year.

Washington

Above, Vice President Joe Biden makes a phone call Thursday at D.C.’s new Costco. At left, he studies apple pies, and, at right, Mayor Vincent Gray cheers for the store.

Hey, Isn’t That … President Barack Obama trekked Saturday to an Arlington bookstore with his daughters, Sasha and Malia. The White House said the trip to One More Page Books was part of an effort called “small business Saturday” to encourage shoppers to patronize mom-and-pop businesses after Thanksgiving. First lady Michelle Obama caused a stir September 2011, after an AP photographer captured her apparent attempt at undercover shopping at an Alexandria Target. Other first ladies have gone shopping or on outings without the media along, but it is highly uncommon for only one news outlet to document such an outing. (AP/E XPRESS)

RICKY CARIOTI/TWP

Take a Walk Doug Rogers, a Texas native who now lives near U Street NW, walks across V Street while running some errands.

Walkable neighborhoods are driving real-estate development both inside and outside the District Before he moved to his current U Street neighborhood — and to Dupont Circle before that — Doug Rogers knew exactly how long it would take to walk to the Metro, the grocery store, the pharmacy and local restaurants. “It was a big draw,” says Rogers, a fraud investigator and former president of the Dupont Circle Citizens Association. A Texas nat ive, Rogers put a premium on the District’s walkable neighborhoods. “In Texas, you drive ever y where,” he says. “It seems counterintuitive, but it actually feels like we live in a small town. Being able to walk helps create a neighborhood feel.” “Walkable” is a feature sparking

sales and energizing future development and redevelopment, according to a recent report by George Washington University professor Christopher B. Leinberger. The report, “DC: The WalkUP Wake-Up Call,” calls the Washington area a national model for compact urban areas where residents can live and work without cars. “The strongest housing market is in walkable, urban areas,” Leinberger says. “That’s where the demand is.” T he p opu l a r it y of w a l k a ble neighborhoods is also ref lected in real-estate listings, according to local experts. One major residential realestate service, Zillow, even routinely includes “walk scores” in its listings. And many local real-estate agents are quick to point out what is within walking distance of a property. “We always talk about proximity to Metro,” says Lindsay Reishman, principal broker of Dupont Circle-

ba s e d L i nd say R e i sh m a n R e a l Estate, not ing t hat wa lkable neighborhoods are appealing to all demographics, from empty-nesters to young professionals. Regionally significant walkable urban areas — referred to in the report as “WalkUPs” — have cultural amenities such as museums and libraries, offices, shopping, restaurants and different types of housing. There are 43 such neighborhoods in the Washington area, spanning seven counties. While they share characteristics, they don’t all look the same. Some,

such as Capitol Hill and Capitol R iver f ront, a re nea r dow ntow n Washington. Van Ness, Georgetown and Adams Morgan are examples of urban commercial areas. Others are in suburban town centers such as Frederick, Md., Bethesda and Clarendon or in strip commercial redevelopments, such as Bailey’s Crossroads and Friendship Heights. Forty-two percent of the WalkUPs are in the District. The majority are in the suburbs, according to the report. National Harbor, New Carrollton, Virginia Square and Rosslyn are among the neighborhoods that make the list. The growth in the suburbs is dramatic, given that there were only two walkable areas there in 1990. “There’s no reason to add a square mile of development,” Leinberger says. “Where there is pent-up demand is in these [walkable, urban] areas.” Continued on page 16

Building Relationships Home Improvements As the housing market recovers, more homeowners are considering a custom residential construction or major renovation project. An architect can serve as your advocate through all phases of the design and construction process, but how do you find the best person to help you execute your vision? Start by getting recommendations from friends and family members.  The

What They Do An architect can help you with all parts of a renovation or construction: the initial design, hiring and overseeing contractors, sourcing materials and adhering to budgets, timelines and building codes. (T WP)

THINKSTOCK

The right architect can make your renovation project a success

American Institute of Architects (Aia .org) is another resource to help you find architects in your area. Narrow your search down to three or four firms by reviewing the design

portfolios on their websites. As you begin your interview process, ask each prospective architect: What do you see as the significant issues in this project? What will you show me along the way to explain the project? What is your experience/track record with cost estimating? Can you provide a list of recent references? The services the architect provides during construction and the fee structure need to be addressed from the outset of the relationship.  You should be upfront about your expectations and vision of what the final product will look and feel like.  You must also

ask for clarification on anything you don’t understand. Consult the American Institute of Architects’ owner-architect agreement and get a signed contract prior to any work taking place.  Expenses can range from a flat fee to an hourly rate to a percentage of construction costs.

About the Author John Isch is principal at RWA Architects Inc. i  n Cincinnati and chairman of the  American Institute of Architects  Custom Residential Architects Network.

From there the fun parts can begin. A good starting point is to share visuals that reflect the vision you are hoping for. Architects are trained as problem solvers and will ask a number of questions to help tailor the design to fit the way you and your family go through your daily lives, ensuring you will enjoy the results for years to come.

digs Walkability Of course, “walkable urban isn’t for everyone,” he says. “The good news for those who want to buy in the drivable suburbs is that houses are quite cheap. In the fringe suburbs of Washington, prices in some neighborhoods have dropped 50 and 60 percent.” The price of buying in a regionally significant, walkable urban area is higher, Leinberger notes. But there are cost-savings in transportation by not having to maintain a car (or cars). And there’s a higher return on the investment in the long run, Leinberger says. For example, a place with good walkability, on average, commands $10.60 per square foot more annually — almost 60 percent more — in residential rent than places in car-centered suburbs, according to the report. Forsale housing is $157.68 per square foot — about 70 percent more than in cardependent areas — in WalkUPs.

A 2011 survey by the National Association of Realtors found that 58 percent of respondents favor walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods over neighborhoods that require more driving among home, work and recreation. Rents and home values are even higher in walkable urban areas that are clustered together, such as Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Adams Morgan, K a lorama, West End, Columbia Heights, U Street, Logan Circle and downtown, the report says. In Virginia, Clarendon, Virginia Square, Courthouse and Ballston form a walkable urban district. With the proliferation of bike- and car-sharing programs, living car-free has never been more convenient. Most (33 of the 43 regionally significant WalkUPs) are near rail transit or will be when construction is complete. Being within a mile (and therefore an easy walk) to the Metro “makes

living very easy,” says Marcie Sandalow, an agent with Chevy Chase-based Evers and Company Real Estate. “Clients are willing to pay more for it.” Zillow has included Walk Scores in its listings since 2009, just after Walk Score was founded. The Seattlebased company ranks neighborhoods on a scale of 0, meaning very cardependent , to 10 0, a “ w a l ker ’s paradise” where most errands can be done without a car. Buyers are also relying more on smartphone apps that show the nearest walkable amenities, from elementary schools to coffee shops. As real-estate agents are quick to tell house hunters, a home’s proximity to such destinations may end up meaning just as much as its address. “People love being able to wander up for an ice cream after dinner, or to let the kids walk to see a movie,” Sandalow says. The shift away from neighborhoods w he re re side nt s mu s t d r ive t o stores and offices is evident in local government smart-growth policies and community plans, according to Leinberger’s report.

rules and have encouraged projects that combine high-density residential with retail and office space to make a walkable core. That’s one of the goals for Columbia Pike, says Takis Karantonis, executive director of Arlington-based Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization. “We want this to be a walkable corridor,” he says. “We want mixed uses. It’s more vibrant. It’s friendly.” It ’s t he hea r t of t he pla n for Tysons. And while some critics have raised doubts about how walkable the area will become, Leinberger is optimistic. “Rome was not built in a day,” he says. He and other experts are encouraged by the plans to open four new Metro stations. Bike lanes are being built. And retail is being built to the sidewalk. It’s more pedestrian-friendly to walk past buildings than parking lots. In the end, Tysons property owners,

including nearby residents, embraced higher-density mixed uses, Leinberger says: “They realized, ‘We have to urbanize to get back into the game.’ ” W it h it s g r id of st re e t s a nd moderate-size blocks, the District has always been inherently walkable. But, says Harriet Tregoning, director of the D.C. Office of Planning, “we haven’t always had so many places to walk to. “We have more convenience retail,” she says. “More and more, people can meet their daily needs in their neighborhoods.” From the Safeway being rebuilt in Petworth to new businesses in Columbia Heights, walkable amenities are being added in neighborhoods across the District, Tregoning says. “We’re lucky that we have so many walkable neighborhoods,” Tregoning says. “I think a single indicator of a successful city is its walkability.” LAURA BARNHARDT CECH (THE WASHINGTON POST)

JTIII tinkers with rotation as starters rack up court time

Georgetown coach John Thompson III has not gone to his bench much, with seven players getting most of the minutes.

Through five games, coach John Thompson III has played his starters heavy minutes, with four averaging at least 30 per game. Sure, using studs against high-end foes like top-ranked Indiana and UCLA is perhaps a necessary approach, but Thompson also went that route Saturday against Mount St. Mary’s. The 72-50 victory presents itself as a blowout, but Georgetown (4-1) couldn’t fend off its supposedly overmatched foe until it closed the game with a 22-6 run. And Thompson certainly didn’t manage the game as if it were a blowout. He played Greg Whittington every second possible, making it the third game the multifaceted forward has played at least 40 minutes (the Howard County native logged 43 minutes in the

In addition to the starting five, reserve guard Jabril Trawick and freshman scorer D’Vauntes SmithRivera received quality floor time against Mount St. Mary’s. “That is not how I want to be, that’s not how I wanted today to be,” Thompson said after the game. “We have some guys, from Moses [Ayegba], to Stephen Domingo, to Aaron Bowen, to Bradley Hayes, that we need to get ready. But it was an eight-point game with five or six minutes to go.” Last season, even in tight games, the coach did not shy away

Through five games, coach John Thompson III has played his starters heavy minutes. from playing his reserves. This year, it seems Thompson has fewer options beyond his top seven. That’s not to say Thompson knows exactly what he has among his starting five beyond Porter and Whittington. “As much as we have to get past our first seven, those guys are still settling into new roles and totally new positions that they have to get accustomed to before league play starts, before eight, nine and 10 get ready,” Thompson said.

‘Perfect Half’ Has Terps on High Terps Hoops For 20 minutes of basketball on Tuesday, the Maryland Terrapins looked precisely like the team that coach Mark Turgeon believes they can become. Alex Len dominated the paint, Dez Wells drove aggressively to the basket and Logan Aronhalt came off the bench to knock down critical three-pointers. Teammates shared the ball, paying more mind to the increasing lead on the score-

board than to anything that might show up on a postgame stat sheet. In the second half — “Almost a perfect half,” Turgeon said — Maryland (5-1) turned a close game at Northwestern into a rout, and the possibilities for the future presented themselves.

The reality is that it was just 20 minutes, and the Terrapins’ biggest problem this season has been their tendency to backslide, to slip into stretches of sloppy turnovers and poor shot selection.

Maryland center Alex Len blocks a shot against Northwestern on Tuesday.

Maryland’s matchup against George Mason (5-2) on Sunday in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Cen-

ter represents its next opportunity to put it all together for an extended period, and perhaps its last opportunity to do it against a quality opponent before ACC play commences in January. Len, who had 13 points and 13 rebounds against Northwestern, believes Tuesday’s victory could be a catalyst for the team. In the locker room after the game, he said, players began to realize what they could achieve. “E v e r y o n e w a s j u m p i n g around, yelling. It was great,” Len said. “Everyone was hyped.

When Bigger Isn’t Best Renters who move into smaller apartments learn to live with a little less Moving

KEVIN DIETSCH/ FOR EXPRESS

Gregg Orton and Meina Banh’s recent move had a few casualties: among them, a man-cave. The couple went from a twobedroom basement apartment in Mount Pleasant to a one-bedroom place in Columbia Heights, losing Orton’s entertainment room in the process. “Most of the bigger places we looked at were way out of our budget,” says Banh, 30. “When we found this apartment, it seemed like the best space, even though I had to give up our washer/dryer.” Moving means downsizing for many renters. Some want to move to a more popular area, where the cost is higher. Others go from sharing a place to having their own space — which usually means having less of it. “A lot of people do have a budget, and in order to stay on that budget and be where they want to be, they’re forced to downsize,” says LeiYana Stevenson an apartment Realtor with City Chic Real Estate. No matter why renters decide to downsize, they must come to terms with the fact that all of the stuff from the larger apartment isn’t going to fit into the smaller one. “If you have the space, you’ll fill it, so we tend to fill our homes with things,” says Certified Professional Organizer Scott Roewer. When Christopher O’Connell, 28, decided to get his own place and moved from

Downsizing

of our bigger pots and pans away.” With less space, it’s especially important to keep things tidy. “I have a rule that the kitchen has to stay clean,” O’Connell says. “I’m trying to expand it out to the rest of the apartment.” It’s not just stuff that renters have to give up: It’s also personal space. “We don’t want to always be in each other’s face,” Banh says. So the couple found a way for Banh to give Orton enough space for his video-game habit. “We moved one of our smaller TVs that we had in our living room into the bedroom so I can go watch TV.”

O’Connell had to pare down his kitchen and office space, which meant ditching a lot of clutter — and an entire bookcase — along the way. “I had a lot of stuff that I had just accumulated through the years,” he says. Many renters embrace decluttering. “Basically it was my chance to get rid of Gregg’s ugly clothes,” Banh says.

For others, letting go is hard, especially when things have sentimental value. The key is realizing how much more you’ll enjoy your space when it is less cluttered. “When you’re in the room, you want to enjoy being in it, not constantly spending time shifting stuff to do what you need to do,” Roewer says. Getting rid of things can be tough. Eliminating redundancies and extras is a good place to start. “Ask yourself, ‘Do you really need that mixer?’ ” Roewer says. “How many spatulas do you actually need at once? Pick your favorites, pare down, and ask if some things can do double duty.” What about that massive dresser you inherited from your grandmother? Large furniture doesn’t

necessarily have to get kicked to the curb, but “make sure you can use it in a multifunctional way,” says Roewer, who once stored clothes in a large television armoire. If you need to buy new stuff, there’s plenty of useful furniture out there to help you fit into a smaller space. Roewer says local stores such as Vastu (Vastudc.com) and SkyNear (Skyneardesigns.com) are great places to find pieces that are multifunctional and help you make use of vertical space by storing upward not outward. Of course, when nothing you can buy seems to fit, you can always do it yourself. “We had to be creative with the space in the kitchen,” Banh says, “so we just built a rack there so that we can put some

“How many spatulas do you actually need at once? Pick your favorites.” — SCOT T ROE W ER, A CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER WHO HELPS CLIENTS DECLUTTER THEIR HOMES

Finding a layout that works for you is helpful when going smaller. A smaller apartment with open space can often feel bigger than a larger apartment with poor design. “Our first apartment, the space was very awkward and kind of narrow,” Bahn says, noting the open space of their new living area where they can now more easily entertain.

Stuff for Small Spaces 3

Multipurpose furniture and space-saving finds fit any home 1. Travellers Trunk: If you’re looking for multifunctional furniture, try World Market’s Travellers Trunk. Fill it with stuff, and then put a tray on top for use as a table, $329.99. 2. Minimalista Nesting Tables: When lacking separate dining and living rooms, one room needs to be both. Blu Dot’s Minimalista Nesting Tables can stack together if you need room for guests, but they can spread out for a relaxed evening at home, $799. 3. Magnetic Knife Bar: Scrutinize carefully each item that comes into your small home. Do you want a knife block that takes up counter real estate? Find a space-saving alternative, such as WilliamsSonoma’s Magnetic Knife Bar. $39.95. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Cap City nesters have loved colorful interiors since George Washington decked out Mount Vernon in Yankee Doodle bright blues and otherworldly greens. Jonathan Adler, the midcentury mad hue master, puts a new twist on that idea with his rainbow of retro pots, Regency-gone-rad upholstered sofas and witty rugs. Adler just opened a Georgetown shop (1267 Wisconsin Ave. NW; 202-9651416) and published “100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life” ($25, Sterling Signature). Why did it take you so long to come to D.C.? It took a long time to find a place in Georgetown, which is an area I just find so singular. I’ve always felt like it had the right architecture and vibe for one of my stores.

Why does your stuff sell well here? There are many different facets to my oeuvre, ranging from groovy and modern to updated WASPy, and I think they resonate in Washington. How would you describe your style? It’s funny, a lot of people might say I’m a maximalist, but the truth is I’m a minimalist. I design a product, but I hope I know when to stop. You’ve always been a big cheerleader for color. Why do you love it so much? It’s the most effective antidepressant in the world. I say to overdose on orange, not on Prozac. I appreciate the optimism that strong colors communicate.

What’s the next hot hue? For many years, chocolate brown has been all the rage. But I think gray is hugely important now, too, and it looks great in all its iterations. It’s a sombre anchor for bright pops of color. Humor and wit are a big part of your designs. Why? I think people are a bit too serious in their homes. My mission? To make them seem a little more glamorous and eccentric than they might think that they are. OK, so what’s the secret of making people’s homes tell an interesting story? Start with a classical foundation and then add tiny, playful punctuations. Like, right now, I’m looking at a porcelain sculpture of a devil head, which we sell as a lamp. Having a devil on your shelf is provocative! You’ve designed hotels, tote bags and Starbucks cups. Is there anything you won’t create? I’m not a snob in any way, so no. I have this missionary zeal to make everything better. Whatever object one interacts with should be as good as it can be. JENNIFER BARGER (E XPRESS)

Hammering a Point The heavy-handed symbolism in Pitt’s ‘Killing Them Softly’ undermines its aim

Director: Andrew Dominik Stars: Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta and Richard Jenkins In a Nutshell: Jackie Cogan is an enforcer hired to restore order after some guys rob a Mob-protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse.

THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY

The head of a crime syndicate (Richard Jenkins, above) enlists Jackie (Brad Pitt, right) to send a message to the criminal world.

Hearsay

His Last Stand? The face is hardly wrinkled and the long blond locks appear unchanged, but Brad Pitt, who will turn 49 in December, is increasingly preoccupied with the passage of time and the thought that his rarefied place in movies is fleeting. “I’m definitely past halfway,” says Pitt of his career. “I think about it very much as a father. You just want to be around to see [your children] do everything. If I have so many days left, how am I filling those days? I’ve been agonizing over that one a bit like I never have before.” (AP)

manages to be both a serious actor and a superstar; the slicked-back hair, aviator sunglasses and gold chains are a showy shorthand to signify he’s a dangerous guy, but the consistently surprising choices he makes with the rat-a-tat dialogue reveal his character’s intelligence. Jackie brings in an old colleague, veteran hit man Mickey (James Gandolfini), to take out the robbers and send a message to the rest of the criminal world. The scenes these two actors share are by far the film’s best; they’re so different in tone from everything else, they feel like they’re part of a separate movie. At the other end of the aesthetic spectrum is the artfully graphic pummeling some of these characters take, particularly Ray Liotta as the guy who runs the card game in question. “A mer ica’s not a country, it’s just a business,” Jackie declares in the film’s final monologue, a message “Killing Them Softly” already had hammered pretty hard during the previous hour and a half. C H R I S T Y LEMIRE (AP)

‘Jungle’ Book: “The Hunger Games” novelist Suzanne Collins, left, has an autobiographical picture story coming out next September. The 40-page book, “Year of the Jungle,” is based on the time Collins’ Air Force officer father served in Vietnam and will tell of a little girl named Suzy and her fears after her dad leaves for war. Intended for ages 4 and up, the book is Collins’ first since 2010’s “Mockingjay,” the last of “The Hunger Games” trilogy. (AP)

DREAMWORKS PICTURES

Killing Them Softly (R)

Film Review Writer-director Andrew Dominik’s “Killing Them Softly” is an incredibly stylish genre exercise set in the world of mobsters, junkies and lowlifes, but it’s also trying incredibly hard to be About Something. Not content merely to be profane, abrasive and, occasionally, darkly amusing, it also wants to be relevant. And so Dominik has taken the 1974 crime novel “Cogan’s Trade” by George V. Higgins and set it in the days before the 2008 presidential election, just as the U.S. economy is in the midst of catastrophic collapse. Every television and radio is tuned to then-candidate Barack Obama or President George W. Bush addressing the nation with the volume cranked way up, commenting all-too-obviously on the film’s action. As if we couldn’t decipher for ourselves that organized crime functions as its own form of capitalism, “Killing Them Softly” turns on the mini-implosion that occurs when a couple of idiots rob a Mob-protected card game. The corporate types at the top of the crime syndicate, represented by an uptight, humorless (and nameless) Richard Jenkins, want to restore order, so they ask Jackie Cogan, an enforcer played by Brad Pitt (star of Dominik’s haunting, poetic “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”), to investigate the heist and punish the perpetrators. This is one of those effortless Pitt performances that exemplify how beautifully he

Matinee Idling I have the world’s best job, but December kills me. First, there are all the Oscar-bait releases, which are often an embarrassment of riches. And then there are all the early January releases to see, too, and those are often just embarrassing. Which is why it was such a pleasure to see “Lincoln” last week. Not necessarily because of the film (the script is overly preachy By Kristen and the direction Page-Kirby overly Spielberg-y) but because, get this: I saw it in the theater. With a friend. Surrounded by regular moviegoers. It’s the first time I’ve done that in more than two years. My husband and I go out to see movies, but there’s always arranging the baby sitter and paying the baby sitter and realizing that because of the baby sitter you just spent more than $20 a ticket to see “Ted.” But this time I was free, my friend was free, we met at the theater for the matinee, and I watched a movie without a notebook on my lap. Technically it was for work (I need to see anything that might be up for an Oscar, and they’ve already engraved Daniel Day-Lewis’ name on the trophy) and I’ll expense the ticket because, hello, I wrote a whole column about it. But last week, I simply got to go to the movies with a friend and rediscovered that, even with the world’s best job, I sometimes still need a break.

A Repeat Offender Film Review “The Collection” is a sequel to Marcus Dunstan’s little-seen 2009 horror film “The Collector.” The director and his co-screenwriter Patrick Melton have written four of the “Saw” films, and this similar exercise in gratuitous sadism and gore follows roughly the same template. This nastily efficient thriller, however, does offer some effective

chills along the way, beginning with an early sequence depicting the elaborate massacre of dozens of teens at an underground dance party that features the most fake blood seen onscreen since “The Shining.” Attending the party is beautiful rich girl Elena (Emma Fitzpatrick), who manages to survive the grisly goings-on long enough to open a trunk and rescue Arkin (Josh Stewart), the hapless thief who was the first film’s primary victim. Although he manages to make a daring escape by diving out of a window, she’s taken prisoner by the masked killer (stuntman Randall Archer) who totes her back to his lair.

The Collector (Randall Archer, right) taunts one of his victims (Josh Stewart, left).

Unfortunately for the traumatized Arkin, Elena’s father (Christopher McDonald) has hired a crack team of mercenaries to find his lit-

tle girl. Bursting into his hospital room, they demand that he lead them to the killer. The team ventures into the Col-

Playing Last weekend’s top 5 films at the box office FLIGHT (R, 138 minutes) “Flight” brings audiences perhaps the most harrowing scenes of a troubled airplane ever committed to film. Director Robert Zemeckis puts viewers onboard the routine 52-minute short hop that will have life-changing repercussions for ace pilot Whip Whitaker. Portrayed by Denzel Washington with his characteristic somber focus, Whip is introduced in the film’s opening sequences waking up after a night of hard partying. Just another day on the commuter-flight circuit, until a dab of turbulence and a defective plane send Whip, his crew and his passengers on a spectacularly terrifying controlled dive from which the pilot will emerge a hero. Only a handful of people know that he’s a sullied Sullenberger. The twist is that the arrogance and illusion of invulnerability that could keep him from saving his own life are the very qualities that help make him an excellent pilot. A.H. LIFE OF PI (PG, 127 minutes) The story of Piscine Molitor Patel, also known as Pi, “Life of Pi” begins with an Edenic panorama of his youth, which was spent in a small zoo run by his father in the former French colony of Pondicherry, India. When the Patels decide to move to Canada, taking the animals with them on a cargo ship, the trip is interrupted by a ruinous storm, resulting in Pi being thrown overboard, his only salvation a

lifeboat he must share with the zoo’s ferocious Bengal tiger, Richard Parker. Pi’s journey with Richard Parker forms the spine of “Life of Pi,” which director Ang Lee infuses with the graphic, stylized boldness of illustration and moments of dazzling poetry and intimacy. A.H. LINCOLN (PG-13, 149 minutes) A peculiar, powerful alchemy takes hold in “Lincoln,” Steven Spielberg’s masterful portrait of the 16th U.S. president. Through that strange mix of realism, artifice, intimacy and scope that cinema uniquely possesses, viewers find themselves transported to 19th-century Washington, where Abraham Lincoln — portrayed in a surpassingly sympathetic performance by Daniel Day-Lewis — has just been re-elected to a second term. Spielberg infuses “Lincoln” with energy, acumen, surprising humor and the unabashed affection for his subject that most Americans will wholly understand and probably share . A.H. R E D D AW N ( P G -13 , 9 4 m i n u t e s ) There’s good news and bad news about “Red Dawn,” a remake of the 1984 action film about high school kids from the American heartland forced to become guerrilla warriors when their small town is invaded by foreign troops. This amped-up retread, which substitutes North Korean soldiers for the original Soviet bad guy, is a big improvement. The bad news: That’s not saying much. Much of the speechifying comes from Jed, a brooding Marine on home leave who is left in charge of his brother Matt and several of Matt’s teenage friends after they slip through the clutches of the brutal North Korean prefect. Jed quickly recruits the

Meanwhile, he meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a sharp-tongued young widow with an acute nonsense-detector and a knack for brutal honesty equaled only by Pat’s own impulsive, socially disastrous candor.

In addition to the showdown between the Guardians and Pitch there’s another conflict. Few kids actually believe in the Guardians or Jack Frost, other than as a quaint metaphor for cold weather. But one little boy named Jamie refuses to give up his beliefs. It’s this power of Jamie’s belief that makes

preposterousness, a winking willingness not to take itself so very seriously, but with writing, acting and production values of the highest order. All of those elements are on hand in “Skyfall,” which at the outset finds Bond (Daniel Craig) in Istanbul, pursuing a bad guy through bazaars and over rooftops in a ludicrous motorcycle chase that at one point finds Bond making a wittily blase entrance into a moving train car. That episode will somehow go all pear-shaped, though, sending Bond into something of an existential spiral. The not-so-sub-subtext of “Skyfall” is the ongoing dialogue between past and future, whether it’s youth vs. age, computers vs. analog or point-and-click terrorism vs. old-school geopolitics. A.H.

The story clicks in after word reaches the Volturi — the vampire world’s governing elite — that Renesmee may be a vampire baby who threatens to expose their carefully hidden vampire subculture. As Aro, the leader of the Volturi, Michael Sheen is a rare delight as he attempts

to determine whether Edward and his family must be punished and Renesmee destroyed. It ain’t much, but it passes for drama — if by “drama” you mean a climactic showdown in a field of snow. M.O. WRECK-IT RALPH (PG, 93 minutes) The 3-D animated comedy is the story of a goofy bad guy out of a retro arcade game who “game jumps,” leaving his cloistered universe in search of fulfillment in other games. It’s a clever and original idea, but the narrative itself is overly busy, noisy and unengaging, with little of the charm and heart that won viewers over in the “Toy Story” franchise. In the title role of a hulking destroyer who’s only good at smashing things but who dreams of becoming a hero, John C. Reilly manages to evoke the pathos of an outsider. And Sarah Silverman is pretty perfect as Vanellope von Schweetz, a tomboyish preadolescent driver in a kiddie drag-racing game. Like Ralph, Vanellope aspires to video-game greatness. Their friendship is what ultimately drives the movie. M.O.

’Staching For a Cause

It Does NOT Have Lucy Liu

We just love the end of November. We know on Saturday, all the men who have grown mustaches to support cancer research (a very worthy cause!) will finally shave them off and look like humans again. Celebrate at a final Movember party at Cause, which will award prizes for the best ’staches — and have fake ones on hand as well. Cause, 1926 9th St. NW; Fri., 8 p.m., free; Causedc .org. (Shaw)

John Barrymore’s 1922 silent film “Sherlock Holmes” was once considered a lost classic. The film was rediscovered in the 1970s, so now you can see the actor (Drew’s grandfather!) tackle the role of our favorite detective. The AFI’s screening this weekend features live accompaniment from musician Ben Model. AFI Silver, 8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring; Sat., 2 p.m., $15; 301-495-6720, Afi.com/ silver.

The “House of Style” that

undergone serious renovations, but it always had good bones. The show’s past and present come together in the documentary “House of Style: Music, Models and MTV,” debuting Saturday. Originally launched with supermodel Cindy Crawford, “House of Style” made the logical links between music and fashion at a time when some of the biggest style trends were coming from the videos that were the bread and butter of MTV: Madonna’s many looks, Run-DMC’s Adidas sneakers and Michael Jackson’s leather jackets. “It was the right show at the right time,” Crawford says. “People saw designs from fashion before, but this helped introduce the peo-

exclusivity and excitement remains. “You don’t know when cool things might happen or pop up, and ‘House of Style’ follows that,” Smalls says. “It’s always exciting. I got into this business because it is more challenging and more creative and more expressive. I didn’t want a 9-to-5 job.

The United States and Britain sign preliminary peace articles in Paris, ending the Revolutionary War.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

Police said she struck the woman in the face with her hand. The woman did not require medical attention. (AP)
