PARTNERS IN CRIME
Grinch’s Dog Is On the Lam Police said they’ve charged a grinch who was captured on surveillance video stealing Christmas decorations outside a south Philadelphia house last month. Police said 45-year-old Marie Amari was arrested at her nearby home Saturday, and the stolen decorations were found inside. Police said they are still looking for a second suspect, who was also spotted on the video. (AP) PARTING GIFTS
Burglar Faux Pas: Leaving Items Instead of Taking Them Authorities in Florida said a highly intoxicated man who broke in to at least seven cars left T-shirts, his wallet and an iPod at various crime scenes.

Young Women Closer To Earning Equal Pay But Pew study finds gender equality still discouraging many
The current ratio of hourly earnings for young women to young men, up from 67 percent in 1980
The ratio of median hourly wage for women to men in 2012, across all age groups
Young A merican women are increasingly likely to receive pay nearly equal to their male counterparts, with earnings at 93 percent of men, a new study finds. Still, those women remain as pessimistic as their mothers and grandmothers regarding gender equality. A report for release today by the Pew Research Center paints a mixed picture. While women under 32 now have higher rates of college completion than men that age, the analysis of census and labor data shows their hourly earnings will slip further behind by the women’s mid30s, if the experience of the past three decades is a guide. That widening gap is due in part to the many women who take time off or reduce their hours to start families. Other factors in the report
“More doors are now open to women, but they can now see how far they are from equality in high-level jobs.” — A NDRE W CHERLIN, SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR AT JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY, ATTRIBUTING YOUNG WOMEN’S NEGATIVE ASSESSMENTS ABOUT GENDER EQUALITY TO THEIR RISING CAREER EXPECTATIONS
are gender stereotyping, discrimination, weaker professional networks and women’s hesitancy to aggressively push for raises and promotions, which together may account for 20 to 40 percent of the pay gap. In all, 75 percent of women ages 18-32 say the U.S. needs to do more to bring about equality in the workplace, a percentage similar to baby boomer women ages 49-67 and higher than other age
groups. Some 57 percent of young men answered that way. Even so, just 15 percent of young women say they have been discriminated against because of their gender. “Today’s generation of young women is entering the labor force near parity with men in terms of earnings and extremely well prepared in terms of their educational attainment,” said Kim Parker, associate director with the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project. “They feel empowered in many ways, yet when they look at the workplace, they see it as a ‘man’s world’ with the deck stacked against them.” Women are increasingly moving into higher career positions both in government and business. They make up nearly half the workforce, and the share of women in managerial and administrative occupations is nearly equal to that of men — 15 percent compared to 17 percent. A landmark came Tuesday, when General Motors picked Mary Barra, a 33-year company veteran, as the ﬁrst female head of a major U.S. car company. Still, women currently hold just 4.5 percent of Fortune 1000 CEO positions, the Pew report said. The Pew study has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points. HOPE YEN (AP)

Lululemon Founder Resigns as Chairman New York The founder of Lululemon is stepping down as chairman after raising ire with his comments about the body types of potential buyers of the retailer’s yoga pants. Chip Wilson said in a recent television interview that some women’s bodies “just don’t actually work” for Lululemon pants. He also said that thigh rubbing over time will cause the pilling and poor performance of the pants. Lululemon was receiving complaints about the sheerness of some of its pants, which made them seethrough at times. Customers also complained of pilling after a few months of wear — or even just a few uses — and about holes and seams coming apart. The retailer pulled its popular yoga pants from store shelves in the
spring, blaming problems on a style change and production issues. New pants have since hit stores, but the sheerness complaints have continued, in addition to the new gripes about wear and tear. Analysts believe Wilson alienated some core customers and potentially opened a door in the lucrative market to such rivals as Nike, Under Armour, Athleta and others. The Canadian company named lead director Michael Casey as chairman. Wilson, who founded the company in 1998 and still exerted a strong inﬂuence, will retain his board seat but will resign as chairman before the company’s annual meeting in June. The company also said Tuesday that it is appointing Laurent Potdevin as its next CEO. He succeeds Christine Day. ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AND MICHELLE CHAPMAN (AP)

Amid political chaos, protesters set up a parallel government Bangkok
Protesters waging a surreal political ﬁght to oust Thailand’s elected prime minister are trying to establish what amounts to a parallel government — one complete with “volunteer peacekeepers” to replace the police, a foreign policy of their own and a central committee that has already begun issuing audacious orders. Among the most brazen, Tuesday: a demand that caretaker premier Yingluck Shinawatra be prosecuted for “insurrection,” and another calling on the public to “monitor” her family’s movements.
L e ad i ng ac adem ic s have slammed the scheme as undemocratic. Critics have called its leader, Suthep Thaugsuban, delusional. But the ex-lawmaker’s bid to seize power could become reality if the military or the judiciary intervenes, as they have in the past. Either way, analysts say this Southeast Asian nation is at a new crossroads that could end with more bloodshed. “This is a combustible situation. We cannot have two governments in Bangkok running Thailand,” said Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of Chulalongkorn University’s Institute of Security and International Studies. “Something will have to give.” Yingluck led the ruling Pheu Thai Party to victory in 2011 elections. But anger against her government swelled after the lower house passed an amnesty bill. The

bill would have allowed her brother, former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, to return to Thailand from a self-imposed exile to avoid a corruption conviction. Protesters say Pheu Thai lost its right to rule because of its support of the amnesty bill and other legislation they oppose. Yingluck says the constitution does not allow her
to resign before elections are held — a ballot both sides know Pheu Thai would win. Suthep said late Tuesday that as of now, “there is no government.” He said his People’s Democratic Reform Committee would nominate a new prime minister, although it has no legal authority to do so. The reality, for now, is that no parallel government exists and that protesters hold less ground than they did at the weekend. Still, Thitinan said, the momentum is on the side of Suthep. The government is “at a disadvantage because they’re not backed by the establishment and the powerful people in Bangkok,” Thitinan said. The army has vowed neutrality, but when push comes to shove, it will side with the protesters, he said. JOCELYN GECKER AND TODD PITMAN (AP)

In 2010, there were an estimated 216 million cases of malaria worldwide. Currently, there is no effective malaria vaccine. Healthy adults 18 to 45 years old are needed to participate in a malaria vaccine research study. This study tests if an experimental vaccine is safe and can prevent infection following exposure to the malaria parasite. If the vaccine does not prevent infection and volunteers develop malaria symptoms, they will receive immediate treatment which is curative. Study volunteers will be compensated for their participation, estimated to last between 12 and 52 weeks. To volunteer, call 1-866-833-LIFE (toll-free) or TTY 1-866-411-1010, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.vrc.nih.gov.

Ukraine to Free Some Protesters Opposition leader: Concessions made by president not enough the essential iPhone and Android app for Metro riders Available on iTunes or the Android App Market
Kiev, Ukraine Aiming to defuse a political standoff that threatens his leadership, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych called Tuesday for the release of the demonstrators arrested in the massive protests sweeping Kiev and vowed that Ukraine is still interested in integrating with Europe. His efforts, however, stopped far short of opposition demands that his government resign, and the two sides appeared no closer to a resolution that would chart out a secure future for their economically troubled nation. Soon after Yanukovych spoke in a televised broadcast, top opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk told demonstrators on Kiev’s central square that the protest leaders were still insisting on their key demands: that Yanukovych ﬁre the government,
appoint a new one committed to signing an association agreement with the EU, release all the arrested protesters, and punish the police who beat peaceful demonstrators. Yanukovych indicated he was still willing to sign the EU deal, but only if the EU can offer better ﬁnancial terms. “We want to achieve conditions that satisfy Ukraine, Ukrainian producers, the Ukrainian people,” Yanukovych said in a televised meeting with his three predecessors, which aimed to ﬁnd a solution to the standoff. But Yanukovych appeared unreceptive to the criticism voiced by Leonid Kravchuk, Ukraine’s ﬁrst president after the country’s independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, who said that beating protesters was unacceptable. “Law enforcement must know that it is forbidden to beat people. And there can be no justiﬁcation for anyone” who does so, Kravchuk said. Yanukovych insisted both sides were guilty. MARIA DANILOVA (AP)

the snow fall from home. Did Washington, often mocked by those in genuinely snowy places, once again overreact to the ﬁrst winter storm of the season, surrendering before the ﬁrst ﬂake fell? Weather forecasters pointed out that in many parts of the region the snowfall lived up to predictions, but given the nature of the immense area, there are no onesize-ﬁts-all forecasts. When temperatures crept a hair higher than expected, less snow fell
on the District and points east than on the rest of the region. Tuesday’s snow and sleet did play havoc with the nation’s aviation system. More than 100 ﬂights from the Washington region’s airports were delayed, and there were major backups in New York, Boston, Charlotte and Chicago. Winter-like temperatures were forecast to continue through the week, with a chance of snow Sat urday. A S H L E Y H A L S E Y I I I A N D DONNA ST. GEORGE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Merchants felt the pain of Christmas business lost, many offices fell more than a day behind, several thousand suffered without power, school children and some parents rejoiced at a day off, and snow-plow crews pocketed overtime pay. The second-guessing about whether the storm measured up to the hoopla that preceded it or warranted all the closings broke out with the sunshine Tuesday afternoon. The forecast had been 2 to 5 inches of snow arriving during the morning rush hour, and both the timing and amount of snowfall were on target in many parts of the region. With all the advance warnings and after Sunday’s ice and sleet, the early-morning arrival of the storm’s second punch Tuesday deterred most doubters who had prepared for work. People in and around Washington weathered in place, had a second cup of coffee and watched

Spikes in Lead, Fetal Deaths Coincided Washington Late-term miscarriages and spontaneous abortions occurred at an unusually high rate among Washington women from 2000 through 2003 — during the same time frame that lead levels were dangerously high in the city’s drinking water, a study has found. The increase in fetal deaths was an anomalous spike for D.C., and the rate of women losing advanced
pregnancies returned to average levels in 2004. That is the year that a Washington Post story alerted the public to the widespread lead problem in tap water, and federal health ofﬁcials began urging children and pregnant women to instead drink ﬁltered or bottled water. The study ﬁndings, which are scheduled to be published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, do not prove that the city’s lead crisis caused fetal deaths or miscarriages. But the results show a signiﬁcant correlation between the two events. Lead is an extremely toxic metal, and ingestion of lead paint
dust and high doses of lead in water have been traced to brain damage, behavioral problems and developmental delays in children. Today, the city’s drinking water has historically low levels of lead. But the study looks back at that period when the city had some of the highest lead spikes in water ever recorded in the United States. It tracks the rate at which pregnant D.C. women suffered miscarriages known as fetal deaths — losing a pregnancy after 20 weeks. Like many urban areas in the 1990s, D.C. was experiencing a gradual decline in the rate of women losing babies late in pregnancy. But in

Report Details Lapses At the National Zoo Director: Incidents show that resources are stretched thin
Take your career to the next level.
2000, as cities such as Baltimore continued that slow decline, D.C.’s rate increased by 37 percent. In 2000, the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority had made a chemical disinfection change in its water treatment that started sending hazardous levels of lead through faucets. The chemical change made the water more corrosive on lead pipes and continued for three years before the public was alerted. When a Post story reported the problem in 2004 and residents began using filters and taking other preventive steps, the miscarriage and fetal death rate fell again
The director of the National Zoo said Tuesday that the recent deaths of three animals and the attack of a keeper by a zebra indicate that the zoo’s resources and staff are stretched too thin. The comments by director Dennis Kelly came as the zoo concludes reviews of two internal reports into several serious mishaps. One of the worst mistakes was the death of a female Red River hog that died of septicemia in the zoo hospital last Dec. 17 after she had lost a quarter of her weight in eight weeks, apparently because of improper nutrition. Kelly said the lapses are largely the result of stretched resources. “My staff is as good as anybody in the zoological community,” he said. “I can’t spread this staff any more thin than it is now.” The second animal death was

that of a pregnant Kudu, a kind of antelope, that apparently was spooked by something, ran into a paddock wall and broke its neck. The animal arrived at the zoo May 10, and was found dead June 16. The details of those deaths are contained in a report on conditions at the Cheetah station, which contains cheetahs and other animals. The report, completed Sept. 3, also details the escape last spring of a nonﬂying vulture named Natalie who apparently used a wind gust to soar out of her enclosure.

D.C.’s fast-growing charter schools now have the third-highest market share in the nation, enrolling a larger proportion of students than in every city except New Orleans and Detroit, according to a report released Tuesday. It is based on data from the 2012-13 school year, when D.C. charter schools enrolled 43 percent of the city’s public school students, sparking questions about the future of the traditional public school system, which closed 13 schools for low enrollment.

Numbers Don’t Lie Here’s how the Heisman finalists compare in some key stats.
On Monday, six finalists — the most since 1994 — were invited to New York for this weekend’s Heisman Trophy ceremony (Saturday, 8 p.m., ESPN). Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is the favorite to win, especially since a sexual assault complaint against him has been closed without charges being filed. But if Winston doesn’t win, who has the best chance to take home the trophy? Here’s a ranking of the finalists. JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)

A Memorial Who’s Who
People shout out, sing and hold posters during the memorial service Tuesday for former South African President Nelson Mandela at the FNB Stadium near Johannesburg.
Amid cheers and song for the prisoner who became peacemaker, President Barack Obama energized tens of thousands of spectators and nearly 100 visiting heads of state Tuesday with a plea for the world to emulate Nelson Mandela, “the last great liberator of the 20th century.” Obama’s eulogy was the rhetorical highlight of a memorial service in which South Africans celebrated “a life like no other” with singing and dancing, often during dignitaries’ speeches, as well as prayer and reﬂection.
BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
Lashing rain lent a freewheeling aspect to the memorial, with people taking shelter in the stadium’s hallways, where they sang anti-apartheid anthems. The weather kept many away with the 95,000-capac-
“Regardless of our station or our circumstance, we must ask: ‘How well have I applied his lessons in my own life? It’s a question I ask myself, as a man and as president.” — U.S. President Barack Obama, whose speech Tuesday dovetailed with an agenda Obama is trying to revive at home. The issue of income inequality is popular with his base, but Obama stands little chance of gaining support for the issue with the GOP.
ity stadium only two-thirds full. Obama said it was crucial that progress in the U.S. and South Africa not “cloud the fact that our work is not yet done.” He said that struggles to come “may not be as
ﬁlled with drama and moral clarity as those that came before, but they are no less important.” Obama also launched into veiled criticism of authoritarian governments with leaders in attendance who were friendly with Mandela. “There are too many people who happily embrace Madiba’s legacy of racial reconciliation but passionately resist even modest reforms that would challenge chronic poverty and growing inequality,” Obama said, referring to Mandela by his clan name. “There are too many leaders who claim solidarity with Madiba’s struggle for freedom but do not tolerate dissent from their own people.” Obama’s speech was greeted with thunderous applause, and many heads of state and other dignitaries gave a standing ovation. Despite Mandela’s work to end South Africa’s racial separation, his

record after he was elected president in the country’s ﬁrst all-race elections in 1994 has faced criticism. He did not push for major restructuring of the economy, fearing it could alienate whites who still control most of the country’s industry. Still, reverence for him shone through Tuesday. “Mandela … gave himself to the world,” said 35-year-old Dipolelo Moshe, who had a large South African ﬂag draped over her shoulders. “He sacriﬁced time with his family for us and for me.” Rohan Laird, 54, said he grew up during white rule in a “privileged position” as a white South African and that Mandela helped people like him work through a burden of guilt. “His reconciliation allowed whites to be released themselves,” Laird said. “I honestly don’t think the world will see another leader like Nelson Mandela.” (AP)

170.4 3. AJ McCarron
AJ McCarron The senior quarterback has won two national championships and is 36-3 as a starter. If the Heisman were an award for career achievements, McCarron would get the nod. But he simply hasn’t been the best player in the country this season. His stats are nice (26 passing touchdowns, five interceptions), but they don’t compare to the other candidates’. The one thing McCarron had going for him was being a winner, but he lost the biggest game of the season to rival Auburn, which ended Alabama’s title chances and his Heisman hopes.
FLORIDA STATE QB
NORTHERN ILLINOIS QB
TEXAS A&M QB
BOSTON COLLEGE RB
Last year, Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman, and now it’s likely there will be back-to-back freshman winners. In fact, the award is trending rather young. Four of the past six winners have been underclassmen. Winston is the best player on the No. 1 team in the country. His NCAA-leading 190.1 passer rating is more than 10 points higher than any other quarterback’s. He’s thrown 38 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions, and has averaged an NCAA-high 10.9 yards per pass attempt.
No one had a better Heisman moment than Mason, who rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries in Auburn’s SEC title game win over Missouri. This season, Auburn faced five of the other six SEC teams currently in the top 25. In each of those games (against some of the top defenses in the country), Mason rushed for at least 100 yards and a touchdown. The junior running back has been at his best, against the best competition in the best conference for a team that will play for the BCS national championship.
Lynch has several things against him, with the biggest being he plays in the MAC and was unable to complete an undefeated season with the loss to Bowling Green in the conference title game. But he also may have the best stats. Lynch became just the fifth quarterback in FBS history to pass for 20 touchdowns and rush for 20 touchdowns in the same season, and three of the previous four (Tim Tebow, Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel) went on to win the Heisman. The senior quarterback is also second in the country in rushing (1,881 yards).
Last year, Manziel had that signature win, beating eventual national champion Alabama. This year, the Aggies lost all four games against ranked opponents. Manziel was also a much more dynamic rusher a year ago, scoring 21 touchdowns on the ground in 2012 compared with just eight this year. But the sophomore quarterback has evolved into a much better passer. He ranks ninth in passing yards (3,732), sixth in passing touchdowns (33), fourth in yards per attempt (9.5) and fourth in passer rating (170.4).
The nation’s leading rusher (2,102 yards) made a late Heisman charge by rushing for 897 yards and six touchdowns in a threegame stretch. That’s an average of 299 rushing yards per game. His bid for four straight 250yard games ended when he was injured during the Eagles’ final game of the season against Syracuse. It’s been an impressive year for the senior running back, but he didn’t perform at his best in some of Boston College’s biggest games of the season, rushing for just 38 yards vs. USC and 70 against Clemson (both Eagles losses).

Experience, Talent Go a Long Way George Washington is off to an 8-1 start to the 2013-14 season
7 P.M. Today | CSN
Ahmad Brooks was fined for this hit.
ALEX BRANDON (AP)
College Basketball George Washington basketball coach Mike Lonergan can tick off three reasons why his team, with a record of 8-1, is much improved from last season. “We are more experienced. And we are more talented offensively, that is for sure,” said Lonergan, whose team was last in the Atlantic 10 in scoring last season at 66.3 points per game. The third reason? Things are going the team’s way, as was apparent in an 80-74 win at Manhattan last month. “Winning that game, that gave us confidence,” said Lonergan, whose team lost seven games by seven points or less last season. “The ball did not bounce our way last year. Now we have a nice mix of players with proven experience with some young talent that has some experience.”
George Washington guard Kethan Savage is third on the team in scoring (13.0 ppg).
Last season, GW went 13-17 and relied on forward Isaiah Armwood to do much of the heavy lifting on offense and on the boards. This season’s addition of graduate student Maurice Creek (16.3 ppg), a transfer guard from Indiana, and the improvement of sophomore guard Kethan Savage (13.0 ppg)
have taken some pressure off Armwood, who as a senior is averaging 14 points per contest. “Now we have more scorers around [Armwood],” Lonergan said. “We needed someone on the wing to be a consistent scorer, and that is where Creek has really helped us.” The Colonials’ scoring is up to
nearly 80 points per game. They are coming off a two-point victory Sunday against Maryland on a game-winner by Creek and are 4-0 at home heading into tonight’s contest against Patriot League favorite Boston University. The Terriers are no strangers to Lonergan, the former Vermont coach who faced Boston at least twice a year in the America East Conference. The Colonials were among teams outside the top 25 to receive votes in the AP poll Monday. The last time GW was ranked was when it ﬁnished the 2005-06 season at No. 14. GW was picked to ﬁnish 10th in the 13-team Atlantic 10 this season by coaches and media personnel, and the fast start is even surprising to Lonergan. “I won’t lie to you. I didn’t think we would be 8-1,” he said. DAVID DRIVER (FOR E XPRESS)

Evan Lysacek woke up every morning praying this would be the day the excruciating pain in his left hip — “like you’re being electrocuted” — would subside. And every day when he stepped on the ice, the searing pain reminded him that passion alone can’t fuel a dream. The reigning Olympic ﬁgure skating champion announced Tuesday that a torn labrum in his left hip will keep him from competing in Sochi. After two months of aggressive treatment, doctors told Lysacek last week the injury was not going to improve and he was risking permanent damage if he kept training. “This has been my entire life,

training and representing my country,” Lysacek told The Associated Press. “So it’s just kind of difﬁcult. As much as I knew it could go either way, I never accepted it wouldn’t. I always thought it would work
out. I was crushed. I am crushed.” Lysacek said he will have to take time off the ice for the injury to completely heal, and surgery remains a possibility. “I’m going to have to put the same focus on recovery and getting healthy that I put into training,” he said. Lysacek hasn’t competed since the 2010 Vancouver Games, where he became the ﬁrst American man to win the Olympic title since Brian Boitano in 1988. A torn abdomina l muscle derailed his comeback last season, but he was healthy when he went to U.S. Figure Skating’s “Champs Camp” to get feedback on his Olympic year programs. NANCY ARMOUR (AP)
Hits to Head Continue In the NFL NFL Almost once a game, an NFL player absorbs an illegal blow to the head or neck that could put his career — or worse — at risk. The NFL has been trying to prevent such blows, targeting improper technique and making a point to penalize and ﬁne players for those type of hits. Yet an Associated Press review of penalties through the ﬁrst 11 weeks of the season found those hits are still prevalent. The AP reviewed 549 penalties, 491 of which fell under the category of major infractions: unnecessary roughness, unsportsmanlike conduct, roughing the passer, face masks and roughing the quarterback. Of the penalties charted over the ﬁrst 162 games of the season, the AP identified 156 involving contact with the head and neck. Of those, 38 were for head-wrenching face masks, 25 were for horse collars and 93 were for hits to the head. Quarterbacks (40) and receivers (38) shared the brunt of those hits almost equally, with players at other positions absorbing the other 15 blows. NANCY ARMOUR (AP)

Redefining ‘Art’? MTV names Miley Cyrus the best artist of the year 27
10th anniversary of his death. The music on “Out Among the Stars” is taken from sessions in 1981 and 1984, when country music was going through great change. It was a difﬁcult period for Cash, personally and professionally. Columbia paired him with Sherrill, a Country Music Hall of Fame member who was then the president of CBS Records Nashville. Sherrill helped push country toward a pop, “countrypolitan” sound — away from Cash’s independent-minded ways.
“Out Among the Stars,” set for a March 25 release, features 12 recently discovered studio recordings by Johnny Cash, pictured here at a 1993 show.
It’s a Punderful Life
For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.
The music on the album was recorded during some of the most diﬃcult years of Johnny Cash’s life. JOE TABACCA (AP)
I love many things about “Bob’s Burgers” (8:30 p.m. Sun., Fox), the hilarious and warm animated series about a family-run hamburger restaurant. Chief among them is the writing staff’s love of a good (and bad) pun. If you blink, you might miss the recurring gags that make each episode so funny (or should that be punny?). The title sequence always features a new, puntastic business that’s moved into the vacant space next door: the I’d By Rudi Hit That Boxing Gym; Greenberg Earth, Wind & Tires; and Yes, Wire Hangers!, for example. Then there’s the restaurant’s burger of the day menu board, which is where the writers really shine. There’s the She’s a Super Leek Burger; the We’re Here We’re Gruyere, Get Used to It Burger; the Chorizo Your Own Adventure Burger; and so on. As someone who works with words for a living, I can assure you that a lot of work goes into puns. Sometimes it entails coming up with the one that will make your co-workers cringe the most, but that’s part of what makes it so fun. I enjoy when we toss puns back and forth while brainstorming a headline. It’s a word game that forces you to be creative, clever and (hopefully) funny. Usually, though, I’ll settle for punny.
A Trove of Cash Newly found tracks by The Man in Black cover a difficult period in his professional life Music There’s new never-before-heard music coming from Johnny Cash. Cash’s estate is releasing “Out Among the Stars,” an album he recorded with Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s that was never put out by Columbia Records, then disappeared when the company dropped
Cash in 1986. Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, stashed the tapes — along with a lot of other material. So much that their son, John Carter Cash, and archivists at Legacy Recordings didn’t ﬁnd the recordings until last year. “Out Among t he St a r s” w i l l b e re le a s e d March 25, tagging on to multiple music, book and restoration projects to mark what would have been the singer’s 80th birthday and the
Pitch Perfect The 12 tracks on Johnny Cash’s “Out Among the Stars” include a duet with Waylon Jennings and two with June Carter Cash. “[He] is in the very prime of his voice for his lifetime,” said his son, John Carter Cash, of the recordings. “It’s seldom where there’s more than one vocal take. They’re a live take and they’re perfect.” (AP)
“Dad was always uniquely himself,” John Carter Cash said. “He never modiﬁed himself. But Nashville at the time was in a completely different place. It was the ‘Urban Cowboy’ phase.” Biographer Robert Hilburn, who recently released “Johnny Cash: The Life,” echoed that these were the most difﬁcult years of Cash’s life. He felt like he’d lost his legacy and he was still dealing with the fallout from personal problems including inﬁdelity and drug addiction. He soon met producer Rick Rubin, though, and wrote the “American Recordings” series, a coda to his career that gave his life something of a mythic quality. “Johnny Cash was redeemed, and that was a wonderful lesson,” Hilburn said. “His story is so great and it’s so dramatic and it’s so much more dramatic than I ever envisioned.” CHRIS TALBOT T (AP)
One Last Bang: The party will soon be over for “Californication.” Showtime said Monday that the TV series, which stars David Duchovny, left, as overly sexual Hollywood writer Hank Moody, will conclude after a 12-episode final season that begins in April. It will be the show’s seventh season; the sixth season was its most-watched. Showtime President David Nevins says producers have promised a “beautiful and satisfying conclusion” for Moody. (AP)

Neil Young’s ‘Live at the Cellar Door’ is drawn from a six-show stand at the Georgetown nightclub in 1970. GARY BURDEN
Devotees of the Everything-Usedto-Be-Better school will love Neil Young’s sorta-new record. On Tuesday, the rock legend released the latest in his archival concert series, “Live at the Cellar Door.” The recordings are drawn from a six-show solo stand at the Georgetown nightclub in late November and early Decemb e r o f 19 7 0 . Alone on stage and switching between acoustic guitar and grand piano, the young Young’s folk-rock brilliance shines throughout a 45-minute set of faithful-to-the-original-recording renditions of many of his classics, including “Tell Me Why,” “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” “After the Gold Rush” and “Old Man.” The then25-year-old also played unplugged versions of “Cinnamon Girl” and “Down By the River,” as he makes the latter easily the most beautiful

song about a psycho’s gun-murder of a girlfriend ever put to wax. The Cellar Door recordings find the audience so reverent and rapt that staffers at the club obviously had no problems enforcing its famous “No talking!” rule during his stay. For nostalgic locals, another highlight of this incredible period piece of a record is that it calls attention to the venue where it was made. Plainly, there will never be another Cellar Door. This was a tiny place (legal capacity under 200) at
the corner of 34th and M streets NW where music was king, tickets for major acts averaged $3 and six-show stands like Young’s were considered brief stays. “There’s no happier feeling than being in a room when everybody loves the music,” says Cellar Door founder Jack Boyle, “and we sure had that with Neil Young.” After strolling over to the Georgetown campus for a postmidnight interview with WGTB DJ John Zambetti, Young, who had

We raid R. Kelly’s albums for jawdropping punch lines, too often taking the man’s jaw-dropping musicality for granted. Too bad, then, that the scales have fallen out of balance on “Black Panties,” a new collection heavy with NC-17 babble but light on melodies that dare us to sing along. On the standout track, “Genius,” Kelly admits that scandalizing the universe isn’t as easy as it used to be: “I know you heard it all before.”
This duo’s extraordinary new “Ice” proves how vivid rap music can be 20 years after the Wu-Tang Clan’s arrival. Rapper Face Vega talks trash as viciously as anyone in A$AP Mob — in a tone of voice better suited for booty calls — while producer Gila Monster frames all of that intimate bluster with beats that evoke sizzling grease, melting snow, shattering glass and disintegrating jazz.
For folks raised with the current 9:30 Club as this town’s premier music hall, the coziness of the Cellar Door must be hard to grasp. “It was so intimate I’m not even sure how all these bands got on that stage,” recalls rocker Nils Lofgren. “You could see and hear every little thing everyone did.” There are traces of the Cellar Door vibe at Alexandria’s Birchmere, where patrons will ﬁnd table cards requesting that they not make a peep during performances. “I copied the cards that the Cellar Door had on their tables, word for word,” says Gary Oelze, who founded the Birchmere in 1966, laughing.
