Setting the Protocol Trying to anticipate potential friction with the new policy to allow gay youth members, the Boy Scouts of America distributed extensive explanations. Some examples:
Nation The Boy Scouts of America will accept openly gay youths starting on New Year’s Day, a historic change that has prompted the BSA to ponder a host of potential complications — ranging from policies on tentmates and showers to whether Scouts can march in gay-pride parades. Yet despite their be-prepared approach, BSA leaders are rooting for the change to be a non-event. “My hope is there will be the same effect this Jan. 1 as the Y2K scare,” said Brad Haddock, a BSA national executive board member who chairs the policy implementation committee. “It’s business as usual, nothing happens and we move forward.” Some churches are dropping their sponsorship of Scout units because of the new policy and some families are switching to a new conservative alternative called Trail Life USA. But massive defections haven’t materialized and most major sponsors, including the Roman Catholic and Mormon churches, are maintaining ties. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of fallout,” said Haddock, a lawyer from Wichita, Kan. “If a church said they wouldn’t work with us, we’d have

Health-Care Site Surpasses 1M Sign-Ups Majority enrolled in December, just before the holiday deadline Honolulu A December surge propelled health care sign-ups through the government’s rehabilitated website past the 1 million mark, the Obama administration said Sunday, reflecting new vigor for the problem-plagued federal insur-

ance exchange. Of the more than 1.1 million people now enrolled, nearly 1 million signed up in December, with the majority coming days before a pre-Christmas deadline for coverage to start in January. Compare that with a paltry 27,000 in October, the federal website’s ﬁrst, error-prone month — or 137,000 in November. “We experienced a welcome surge in enrollment as millions of Americans seek access to affordable health care coverage,” Marilyn
Tavenner, the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a blog post. The figures don’t represent a full accounting for the country. They don’t include December results from the 14 states running their own websites. A full 50-state enrollment report is due next month. Overall, the goal is to sign up 7 million people before the first-year open enrollment period closes at the end of March. JOSH LEDERMAN (AP)
Could a Scout march in uniform in a gay-pride parade? No, says the BSA. How publicly active can a gay Scout be, in terms of gay-rights advocacy? “While a youth member may acknowledge his or her sexual preference, that acknowledgment may not reach the level of distraction.” What if a Scout or parent is uncomfortable with sleeping arrangements? “If a Scout or parent of a Scout makes a request to not tent with another Scout, their wishes should be honored,” says the BSA. (AP)
Under the new membership policy, youths can no longer be barred from the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or coed Venturers program solely on the basis of sexual orientation. However, gay Scouts will face some limitations. “Any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting,” says one BSA document. “No member may use Scouting to promote or advance any social or political position or agenda, including on the matter of sexual orientation.” DAVID CR ARY AND NOMA AN MERCHANT (AP)

Bombing Raises Sochi Safety Questions Moscow A suicide bomber struck a busy railway station Sunday in southern Russia killing at least 15 people, ofﬁcials said, in a stark reminder of the threat Russia faces as it prepares to host February’s Olympics in Sochi. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Volgograd, but it came several
months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov called for new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Sochi Games. Sunday’s bomber detonated explosives in front of a metal detector just beyond the station’s main entrance when a police sergeant became suspicious and rushed to check their ID, ofﬁcials said. The ofﬁcer was killed, and several other policemen were wounded. Suicide bombings have rocked Russia for years, but many have been contained to the North Caucasus, the center of an insurgency seeking an Islamist state in the

Musharraf Calls Trial For Treason a ‘Vendetta’ Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, scheduled to face charges of high treason this week before a special tribunal, on Sunday defended his decision to suspend the constitution in 2007. Musharraf, 70, said the prosecution “smacked of a vendetta” by the government. The current prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, is the same politician Musharraf ousted as prime minister in a 1999 coup; Sharif was tried for murder and treason and sent into exile. (THE WASHINGTON POST)
The women and girls leave the main United Nations refugee camp here during the day. The men do not. To exit is to risk death, they say. Such claims show the level of fear that pulses through the main U.N. camp for internally displaced people there two weeks after violence broke out in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, and a spiraling series of ethnically-based attacks coursed through the nation, killing at least 1,000 people. Some 25,000 people live in two hastily arranged camps in Juba, and nearly 40,000 are in camps elsewhere in the country. The government says those in the camps — who are mostly from the Nuer tribe — can leave safely. The men here do not believe it. “There are people watching,” said Wuor Khor, a 29-year-old graduate of Juba University, who was selling bottles of water on the camp’s ad hoc main thoroughfare. “They follow you wherever you are going and then they kill you.”

region. Until recently Volgograd was not a typical target, but the city has now been struck twice in two months — suggesting militants may be using the transportation hub to show their reach. Volgograd, formerly known as Stalingrad, is about 400 miles northeast of Sochi. The bombing highlights the security challenge Russia faces to fulfill its pledge to make the Sochi Games the “safest Olympics in history.” The government has deployed tens of thousands of security personnel to protect the games.

Threat of Violence Lessens The estimated 25,000 armed fighters whom the government said had been marching toward Bor, a state capital, in what could have been a vicious military confrontation have mostly disbanded after being persuaded to stand down, a South Sudan government spokesman said Sunday. Troops in Bor remain on “maximum alert” in case some Nuer fighters still try to attack. (AP)
They, in this case, are members of the Dinka, the majority tribe from which South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit hails. In the camp in Juba, the Nuer, South Sudan’s second largest tribe, feel part of a targeted minority after former Vice President Riek Machar, a Nuer, was accused of a coup attempt on Dec. 15. Although the violence in Juba has largely quieted, rebels control the oil city of Bentiu, and Bor remains under threat of attack. The camp is a U.N. military and logistics hub where men of the Nuer in Juba rushed for safety. Tents are made from towels, sheets and sticks. Wet clothes are draped on barbed wire fence. Dishes are rinsed in tubs of mud-brown sludge. The government has visited here but the minister of information, Michael Makuei Lueth, holds disdain for at least some inside the U.N. fence. “Those in the camps are actually those who decided to rebel here,” he said. Still, he blamed false rumors for spreading fear of death among the Nuer. JASON STRAZIUSO (AP)

Washington Much has been said about the increasingly prolific restaurant scene, fueled by the growing number of affluent young people looking for “foodie” options. But it is now being complemented by the emergence of another culinary scene: the “third wave of coffee,” which focuses on manually producing high-quality coffee typically served in smaller, locally owned shops. For them, coffee is as artisanal as wine and cheese. And such coffee shops, at least in the eyes of those pesky rankings that go viral, are the types of places that can help D.C.
“We know the scene has arrived when we have people who can do this full time.” — TRE VOR CORLET T, WHO OPENED A BRANCH OF HIS GRAND RAPIDS, MICH.BASED ROASTER, MADCAP COFFEE, IN D.C., ON THE GROWING ARTISANAL COFFEE SCENE AND THE BARISTAS BEHIND IT
attain its much sought-after status as one of the country’s hippest cities. The pioneers of this third wave, as coffee aﬁcionados call themselves, point to the new coffee shop owners and nationally recognized brands, including Madcap Coffee, that are expanding to D.C. and to the dozens of college-educated baristas making ends meet on $12 to $14 an hour.
Patrons often pack Shaw’s Coffee Bar, where latte art adorns the drinks.
Coffee enthusiasts in the region have mapped at least a dozen thirdwave shops and restaurants that have opened this year alone. More are on the way, including a shop specializing in coffee-ﬂavored cocktails.
The goal is to transform the region’s utilitarian relationship with caffeine, said barista Jonathan Riethmaier, who works at the Coffee Bar in Shaw. That means moving way beyond the ﬁrst wave of
home-brewed Folgers and the second wave of Starbucks. Riethmaier got his barista job at the Coffee Bar the Washington way: networking. Years ago, he befriended the shop’s owner, Cait Lowry, 31, who ended up living the career coffee barista’s dream, starting with a small coffee cart, then working at Baked & Wired before setting up a shop of her own. Quotes from Abraham Lincoln adorn the walls; indie pop and reggae play over the speakers. The place is consistently packed. “This is D.C. It’s politics. It’s aggressive,” Lowry said. “But this is a more laid-back culture. It’s artsy — I think half of my staff were former art students. And I think the city is deﬁnitely ready now to accept that kind of culture.” ROBERT SAMUELS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

With loss to Giants, Redskins end year on eight-game skid Redskins If this was Mike Shanahan’s final game with the Washington Redskins, it was just like the season. Very disappointing. Jerrel Jernigan caught a 24-yard touchdown pass and ran 49 yards for another to lead the New York Giants to a 20-6 victory over Washington on Sunday. Shanahan has not only seen the Redskins (3-13) finish the season with an eight-game losing streak just a year after winning the NFC East, but his future coaching the team is uncertain because of his shaky relationship with oft-injured franchise quarterback Robert Grifﬁn III. The game was the ﬁnal one at MetLife Stadium until the Super Bowl on Feb. 2. This one was about as ugly as it gets, and the constant rain and injuries didn’t help. The Giants lost quarterback Eli Manning (ankle), receivers Rueben Randle (knee), Hakeem Nicks (ankle) and offensive tackle Will Beatty (broken leg) in the regularseason ﬁnale, while the Redskins saw cornerback Josh Wilson (calf) and defensive end Jarvis Jenkins (head) leave the game. The Redskins ﬁnished with 251 total yards after converting on ﬁve of 20 third-down attempts. Kirk Cousins, who started his third straight game since RGIII was shut down, was 19 of 49 for 169 yards with two interceptions. TOM CANAVAN (AP)
According to sources, he will be fired after four years as coach Redskins Multiple people familiar with the situation said they expect Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to be ﬁred. After Sunday’s season-ﬁnale loss to the New York Giants, Shanahan opened his postgame news conference by saying he would meet with owner Dan Snyder today and would speak with reporters afterward. Asked about whether he had any sense of relief that the season was over, Shanahan replied: “No, not really. You don’t think of it along those terms. You always want to compete and you’re disappointed when you lose. It’s not a fun profession when you lose. To be in this situation is something I haven’t experienced before. So, very disappointed.” Shanahan’s four-year coaching tenure with the team included one glorious late-season run to an NFC East title but also three losing seasons and increasingly frayed relationships with Snyder and quarterback Robert Grifﬁn III. The Redskins had a record of 3-13 record this season, ended on

an eight-game losing streak and ﬁnished in last place in the NFC East. Shanahan is in the fourth season of a ﬁve-year contract that pays him an estimated $7 million per season. The Redskins had a regular season record of 24-40 during his coaching tenure. They lost their lone playoff game under Shanahan to the Seattle Seahawks last season. It is believed that Shanahan would receive the remainder of the money owed to him under his con-

tract if he is ﬁred. He would forfeit that money if he resigns. Shanahan has said he does not intend to quit. The Redskins would have to pay an estimated $6 million in additional money to members of Shanahan’s coaching staff to dismiss the entire staff because of contracts for some coaches that run beyond this season. But some members of Shanahan’s staff, including secondary coach Raheem Morris, could be candidates to stay.

Ravens’ Playoff Hopes Crushed Too many field goals. Not enough wins. And for the first time in six years, no place in the playoffs. The Ravens aren’t used to any of this. The defending Super Bowl champions were eliminated on Sunday with a 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, who took away their AFC North title and pulled away at the end of a game that Baltimore needed to win. Instead, as the closing minutes ticked down, the Ravens (8-8) started getting ready mentally for an unusually long offseason.
TOM UHLMAN (AP)
John Harbaugh missed the playoffs this year for the first time as Ravens coach.
“Not going to the playoffs hurts,” running back Ray Rice said. “I’m not used to having this kind of time on my hands.” None of them are. The Ravens lost their last two
games, denying them a chance to make the playoffs for a sixth straight season. They couldn’t avoid the Super Bowl slump that’s so common. The Ravens became the 15th Super Bowl champ that failed to reach the playoffs the following season, and the sixth in the last 12 years. “That’s it,” coach John Harbaugh said. “That ends it. That stings.” In Cincinnati, there’s only one thing in mind: win a playoff game for the ﬁrst time since the 1990 season. The Bengals lost opening-round games in Houston each of the last two seasons, leaving them tied for the seventh-longest stretch of playoff futility in NFL history. JOE KAY (AP)

NFL Week 17 20 7
The Miami Dolphins were eliminated from the scramble for the AFC’s final wild-card berth by the New York Jets. Geno Smith led three long scoring drives, ran for a touchdown and threw for 190 yards. Two interceptions by rookie Dee Milliner and one by Ed Reed prevented a Miami comeback. The Dolphins (8-8) squandered a shot at their first playoff berth since 2008. The Jets (8-8) will sit out the postseason for the third year in a row.
Le’Veon Bell ran for 90 yards and a touchdown and Pittsburgh drubbed the lifeless Cleveland Browns (4-12). Ben Roethlisberger passed for 179 yards and a touchdown against two interceptions as the Steelers (8-8) won their third straight to avoid the franchise’s first losing season since 2003. The victory also continued a furious second-half rally by the Steelers, who went 6-2 over the season’s final eight weeks, but they missed the playoffs when the Chargers won.
Nick Novak kicked a 36-yard field goal with 5:30 left in overtime and the San Diego Chargers, who trailed by 10 points in the fourth quarter, beat the Kansas City Chiefs to claim the AFC’s final playoff spot. The Chargers (9-7) ended a three-year postseason drought. Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop was wide right on a potential gamewinning, 41-yard field goal try with 4 seconds left in regulation. The Chiefs (11-5) rested 20 of 22 starters. (AP)
Packers receiver Randall Cobb scored the game-winning touchdown Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers fired a 48-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb in the final minute, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears to capture the NFC North title. Back after missing seven games with a broken left collarbone, Rodgers found a wide open Cobb on fourth-and-8 at the 48 to wipe out a one-point deficit with 38 seconds left. That gave the Packers (8-7-1) their third straight division title and kept the Bears (8-8) out of the playoffs.
Malcolm Smith returned an interception for a touchdown, Marshawn Lynch added a 2-yard scoring run and the Seattle Seahawks clinched the NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win over the St. Louis Rams (7-9). Seattle (13-3) matched the franchise record for wins in a season and wrapped up the No. 1 seed after failing in two previous attempts, including last week’s loss to Arizona that snapped a 14-game home winning streak.
Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes, Greg Hardy had a team- record four sacks and the Carolina Panthers clinched the NFC South title by beating the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers (12-4) set a team record by sacking Matt Ryan nine times. Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez had four catches for 56 yards and was honored at halftime in his final regular-season game. He has announced plans for retirement
Peyton Manning set the NFL singleseason yards record and threw four touchdown passes to clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs for the Denver Broncos with a victory over the Oakland Raiders (4-12). Manning needed one half to add the yards record to the touchdown mark he set last week. He finished the season with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdown passes for the Broncos (13-3). (AP)

Umbrella-gate President Barack Obama checks for rain as a Marine holds an umbrella for him during a May news conference. Some Republicans showered him with criticism over the move. The moment and ensuing brouhaha was dubbed “Umbrella-gate.” CHARLES DHARAPAK (AP)

Super Bowl Blackout The Baltimore Ravens led the San Francisco 49ers by 22 points in Super Bowl XLVII when the lights went out at the Superdome in New Orleans. After a 34-minute power outage, the 49ers made a frenzy comeback, but the Ravens prevailed 34-31 to win their second NFL title in 11 years. JAMIE SQUIRE (GETTY IMAGES)
King James Reigns LeBron James and the Miami Heat celebrate their second straight NBA championship after a Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in June. James became just the third player in NBA history to be named the regular-season MVP and Finals MVP in the same season multiple times, joining Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. LYNNE SLADKY (AP)
Hoyas Stunned The second-seeded Georgetown Hoyas were upset by Florida Gulf Coast in their first game in the NCAA tournament â€” just the seventh time a No. 15 seed beat a No. 2. It was a tough ending to an otherwise spectacular season for the Hoyas, who went 25-7 and held a share of the regular-season Big East title. TONI L. SANDYS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
RGIII Goes Down Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III tore his ACL and LCL in his right knee in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks at FedEx Field last January. Griffin spent the entire offseason rehabbing the injury and returned by Week 1 of the 2013 season, but the quarterback was unable to replicate the kind of success he had during his rookie year.

Yosemite’s Rim Fire
Firefighters trudge toward the Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park, Calif. The fire, caused by a hunter’s illegal fire on Aug. 17, burned about 256,000 acres before it was contained in October, making it one of the largest wildfires in California history. It’s estimated that the damage to the ecosystem caused by it may have cost the local economy $800 million. JAE C. HONG (AP)
President Barack Obama was embraced by voters (and his wife, Michelle) for a second term but his agenda took a backseat to budget fights, National Security Agency leaks and the flawed health-care rollout. The president ends his fifth year with a dismal 43 percent approval rating, according to a Washington Post-ABC poll. MANDEL NGAN (GETTY IMAGES)
Boston Bombing In seconds, a scene of celebration turned into one of carnage, as two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, killing three and injuring more than 260. Authorities led a wild manhunt for two suspects — 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died in a shootout with police, and his brother, Dzhokhar, 20, who was captured alive.

Asiana Airlines Crash A charred Asiana Airlines Flight 214 rests near the runway after it crash-landed July 6 at San Francisco International Airport. The crash, which killed three passengers, including one who was thrown from the jet and run over by a firetruck, marked the first passenger-airline fatalities in the U.S. in 4½ years.

Government Shutdown On Oct. 1, Congress plunged the nation into a partial government shutdown as a long-running dispute over President Barack Obamaâ€™s health-care law stalled a temporary funding bill, furloughing 800,000 federal workers and suspending many federal programs and services. On Oct. 17, Obama signed a deal that averted default and ended the shutdown. CAROLYN KASTER (AP)
Reduced to Rubble A resident of Moore, Okla., sits on what is left of the home he shared with his parents after a massive tornado roared through the Oklahoma City suburb on May 20, killing 24 people and injuring 377. The twister, with winds of up to 200 mph, destroyed an estimated 1,150 homes and caused an estimated $2 billion in damage. CHARLIE RIEDEL (AP)
Forging Ahead Capping decades of activism, gay-rights activists won victories in June with two Supreme Court decisions, one of which struck down a 1996 law that banned federal recognition of same-sex marriages. In subsequent months, Hawaii, Illinois, New Mexico and Utah boosted the number of states allowing gay marriage to 18. MARIO TAMA (GETTY IMAGES)
NYC Train Derailment A Metro-North passenger train lies on its side after derailing in the Bronx borough of New York on Dec. 1, killing four people and injuring more than 60. Authorities said the train was hurtling at 82 mph as it entered a 30-mph curve and the engineer had caught himself nodding at the controls just before the wreck, a union official said.

Desperate Measures Down Under In a family photo that became a defining image from the devastating wildfires that ravaged southeastern Australia in January, Tammy Holmes and her grandchildren take refuge under a jetty in the Tasmanian town of Dunalley. Holmes’ husband, Tim, took the photo after directing the family to get into the water to avoid tornadoes of fire that surrounded the Holmes’ house. The family survived after three hours in the water as the fire raged on shore. TIM HOLMES (VIA AP)
The People’s Pope Pope Francis waves to crowds as he arrives at his inauguration Mass in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican on March 19. The first non-European pope in 1,200 years, Francis has swiftly reshaped both the nature and mission of the papacy, shunning the posh papal apartments for a small suite in the Vatican guesthouse and even asking “Who am I to judge?” on the question of homosexuality. His remarkable first months as pope made him Time magazine’s Person of the Year. GREGORIO BORGIA (AP)
Uprooted by Syria’s Civil War A defected Syrian police officer lights a kerosene lamp at an underground cave used for shelter from attacks by Syrian government forces on Idlib province in February. More than 120,000 people have been killed so far in Syria’s civil war, now in its third year, according to the Observatory, a Britain-based watchdog organization. Millions of Syrians have been uprooted from their homes because of the fighting. HUSSEIN MALLA (AP)

Britain’s Baby Bounce Crowds cheered, cameras clicked and an image of familial joy was beamed to the world as Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, emerged from a hospital in July with their son, Prince George, third in line for the throne. The royal fervor was a marked turnaround for a monarchy that ended the 20th century at a low point of popularity. LEFTERIS PITARAKIS (AP)
Terror in Nairobi Mall A Kenyan woman leaps from an air vent where she hid during the chaotic September attack on an upscale Nairobi shopping mall. Somalia’s alShabab militant group took credit for the deaths of at least 67 people in the four-day siege that ended after explosions collapsed three floors of the mall. NICHOLE SOBECKI (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
Putin in Over His Head? Russian President Vladimir Putin navigated some tricky waters in 2013, while keeping up a slate of publicity stunts, including a self-piloted voyage in July to see a Gulf of Finland shipwreck. Critics say he uses such photo ops to distract from real issues, such as an anti-gay law that has drawn outrage ahead of the Sochi Olympics. ALEXEI NIKOLSKY (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
Faith After Haiyan’s Hit Haiyan, one of the world’s strongest typhoons in recorded history, swiped across the eastern Philippines in November, killing more than 6,100 people and displacing at least 4 million others. Above, survivors march during a religious procession through the rubble a little more than a week after the storm. PHILIPPE LOPEZ (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

TV’s Top Letdowns Of 2013
M O N D AY | 1 2 . 3 0 . 2 0 1 3 | E X P R E S S | 21
1. Murder as installation art Such shows as NBC’s “Hannibal,” Fox’s “The Following” and AMC’s “The Killing” keep treating a crime scene as if it’s an MFA thesis exhibit. Murder is horrible enough; it doesn’t need paint, antlers, feathers, etc.
NETWORK PHOTOS/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
2. ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 A finger-drumming wait for something — anything — to happen. Also, I was stunned to see “Mad Men,” with its reputation for details, appear so clumsy with fashion trends.
the best of
My favorite TV shows this year were dour, cruel and often violent affairs — even my favorite reality-
based show was about death. My go-to dramas were about drugs, medieval massacres, remorseless Viking marauders, deceitfully unhappy Soviet spies and a pair of down-in-the-mouth detectives trying to solve the case of a murdered child. The most cheerful shows I liked this year were about incarcerated women treating one another like dirt; sex research in the repressed 1950s; and a U.S. vice president who says the most vicious things imaginable. What’s wrong with me? (Don’t answer that.) While we wait for the clouds to part, here are my picks for TV’s best offerings in 2013. HANK STUE VER (THE WASHINGTON POST )
1. WALTER WHITE’S EXIT STRATEGY Once in a while, I find myself still mulling over and savoring little moments from the final episode of Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad” (AMC), arguably the best TV show in a generation. Why, just the other day I was thinking about the poisoned stevia packet on Lydia’s cafe table …
2. ‘ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’ Netflix has pulled ahead in the race to reinvent TV, but don’t look to “House of Cards” for proof. Instead
look at creator Jenji Kohan’s perfectly written, hilariously profane, character-rich adaptation of Piper Kerman’s memoir about life in a women’s prison.
3. ‘MASTERS OF SEX’ First I was hooked by Lizzie Caplan’s sharp work as the adventurous half (Virginia Johnson) of the famed sex-researching duo who started hooking up willing subjects to the orgasmatron. But as Showtime’s drama got going, it’s been Michael Sheen’s portrayal of the complicated, moody Dr. William Masters that’s
been the real revelation. Also? Fantastic ensemble performances, especially Allison Janney as the pentup wife of a med-school provost. The best new series this fall.
4. THE RED WEDDING The bloody and horrifying high/low point of what turned out to be the best season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” so far.
5. ‘TIME OF DEATH’ Showtime’s brave and meaningful docu-series about what it’s like to die of illness. This was a respectful, uplifting and sobering example of what
reality TV would look like if it had a soul.
6. ‘BROADCHURCH’ Quite possibly the most morose-yet-mesmerizing summertime treat ever, BBC America aired the hit British miniseries starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman as detectives investigating the murder of a boy in a small, seaside town. (Tennant is now slated to star with “Breaking Bad’s” Anna Gunn in Fox’s Americanized remake, called “Gracepoint.” Only network execs can explain how this could possibly be a good idea.)
7. ‘THE AMERICANS’
9. ‘THE RETURNED’
FX’s suspenseful drama about a pair of stressedout Soviet spies living and working in the Washington suburbs of 1981 hinges on Matthew Rhys’ topnotch performance. The show was robbed at Emmy-nomination time but heartily endorsed by wigmakers everywhere.
Sundance Channel’s airing of this hit French miniseries left a lot to be desired, but I was satisfyingly skeeved out by the story of smalltown residents who come back from the dead — not seeking to devour brains but to find closure with loved ones.
8. ‘VIKINGS’ Brutal and permanently dour, just like the Vikings themselves! I enjoyed History’s foray into series drama, starring Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok. (Of the hill people.)
10. ‘VEEP’ Not to Gary-grovel at its feet any more than I already do, but Armando Iannucci’s HBO comedy is still the one to beat when it comes to spot-on spoofs of Washington’s politico culture.
3. ‘Behind the Candelabra’ A sordid, unfeeling and overpraised HBO movie about the sad end of Liberace. I guess viewers were distracted by the makeup and hissy fits. 4. ‘Girls’ The second season of the HBO dramedy left me feeling underserved. But I could be lured back with a season focused mainly (only?) on Adam Driver’s portrayal of Hannah’s moody ex-boyfriend. 5. ‘Homeland’ Showtime’s antiterror drama still has its moments, but just about everyone agrees this season has been a real mess. 6. ‘The Walking Dead’ Walking in circles, mostly. Raise your hand if you wanted to get in that car with Carol (Melissa McBride) and see what else could be found. 7. The fall season Networks continued their skid toward oblivion with tepid offerings.

NEW YEAR’S EVE
AP PHOTO (A&E)
The Seldom Scene Bethesda-bred bluegrass band The Seldom Scene celebrates the dawn of a new year as it always does: with a ﬁnger-picking blowout at the Birchmere. The quintet, which formed in the ’70s and helped usher in the progressive bluegrass movement, will be joined for this year’s hoedown by openers the Stray Birds and Donna Ulisse. Birchmere, 3701
A&E announced that “Duck Dynasty” patriarch, Phil Robertson, will return to the show.
He’s Coming Home to Roost TV A&E landed in the middle of America’s culture wars when “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson sounded off on gays and African-Americans. The channel quickly found there was no safe ground. It was pilloried for allowing a man who equated gays with hellbound sinners like adulterers to have a national TV stage. Then it was excoriated for giving him the hook. With A&E’s decision Friday to bring Robertson back to its mostwatched show, it remains to be seen if it can mend fences with both sides — or at least with those viewers who hold opposing views. The family itself, which had threatened to withdraw if Phil wasn’t welcomed back, didn’t rush out with its own make-nice reaction Friday. The gay rights group GLAAD, which had slammed Rob-
‘Duck’ Call Following a multimillionaire family in Louisiana that runs a duck call manufacturing business, “Duck Dynasty” consistently breaks cable ratings records, with about 12 million people tuning in at the start of last season. New episodes return Jan. 15. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
ertson’s comments to GQ magazine, issued a critical statement despite A&E’s vague allusion to the support of “numerous advocacy groups” for its reversal. “If dialogue with Phil is not part of (the) next steps, then A&E has chosen proﬁts over AfricanAmerican and gay people — especially its employees and viewers,” GLAAD said, referring to Robertson’s remark to GQ that he didn’t know any unhappy blacks in the pre-civil rights era South. A&E said it intended to air a public service campaign “promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people.” LYNN ELBER (AP)
Ca-Ching! Despite a string of summer-
time flops, Hollywood is expected to have a banner year at the domestic box office, coming in just shy of $11 billion, the largest annual take ever. But because of higher ticket prices, actual attendance at North American theaters remained flat after a decade of decline. (AP)

“Trying to explain to my son that the thin grooves embedded on the vinyl played recorded music from the vibrations picked up by a stylus that delivers a sonic message through an amp and speakers must sound as alien to him as automobiles with starting handles were to my generation.” — TONY MYERS AT THEGUARDIAN.COM/ TECHNOLOGY admits the difﬁculty
in trying to get his 13-year-old son to fully appreciate vinyl.
“The Man of the Year, of course, can be a villain, so long as he is a very consequential one.” — JAMES TRAUB AT FOREIGNPOLICY .COM explains why National
Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden is his column’s Man of the Year. While Snowden’s leaks are seen as a “national security and diplomatic calamity” among the U.S. military and intelligence communities, Traub says that “no evidence has yet emerged of crucial intelligence compromised by his disclosures.”
“Parents might not enjoy having to mop up the tears right now, but the long-term lesson to girls to proceed with caution is one they should be thanking Disney for.” — AMANDA MARCOTTE AT SLATE .COM praises the writers of
“Frozen” for going a different route with the princess/prince love story. Spoiler alert! Hans, the handsome prince, turns out to only want the princess’ inheritance and it’s her sister who saves her, teaching girls the dangers of a whirlwind romance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You must follow the rules, but you can do so in a way that asserts your own individuality. You needn’t blend in. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can be instrumental in closing the gap between two conflicting factions. There is much to work for, and you can make quick progress. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may encounter a high level of resistance, at least until those opposed come to a more thorough understanding of your motives.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can demonstrate “how to” for those who need to know, but take care that you don’t reveal too much to your rivals or competitors.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You will want to stand your ground, even as the other side mounts an attack that borders on the personal. You are in the right. CANCER (June 21-July 22) The time for laying blame has passed. Now you’ll want to do what you can to fix the problem — permanently.
41 29 Today: Sun and some clouds today. Partly cloudy tonight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You cannot avoid all criticism, but you can surely maintain a perspective that allows you to bear it with style.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Serious issues demand some serious attention, but you may not be in the mood for such labor. You must respect those who are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Reputation may be an issue before the day is out, but yours is solid. You needn’t expect any serious threats to materialize.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Someone may be paying more attention to you than usual, and you’ll be curious to find out why. The answer is not at all what you expect!
