jerusalem — For many, the
beaming smiles on both sides during Vice President Pence’s visit to
Jerusalem this past week embodied the love affair between American evangelicals and Israel.
The Trump administration’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the
subsequent visit of the evangelical
vice president to Israel mark the
culmination of a long, complicated and sometimes uneasy alliance
between Israeli leaders and Christian evangelicals that dates to before the establishment of the
state.
But the high-water mark comes
just as younger American evangelicals are growing less attached to
Israel. Recent polls have sparked
anxiety among Israeli officials and
Christian Zionist groups, which
are trying to reverse the decline.
Faced with the dip in support,
Israel is increasingly looking to
evangelical communities in Latin
America, Africa and elsewhere to
build international support. Guatemala, where President Jimmy
Morales is an avowed evangelical,
was the first country to follow suit
after the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem.

A lobbyist flies solo from Texas
to Washington to press his case
on the Hill, leaving behind the
female associate who did much of
the work on the issue.
He recognizes that his decision
to fly alone is a lost opportunity
for his talented young co-worker,

that’s going on, he is not willing to
risk a business trip alone with a

allegations against prominent
men crested in recent months,
relationships between men and
women in workplaces across the
country have shifted — sometimes toward more honest discussions of what’s not okay at work,
but also toward silence and exclusion, a quiet backlash against the
righteous pride of the #MeToo
movement.
In Chicago, police technician
Kathern Caldwell sees blank
stares on men when the topic of
sexual misconduct comes up and
worries that “men on the job are
thinking, what’s wrong with us
women?”
In Sacramento, a union leader
struggles over how to handle the
man who calls her several times a
day “to ask questions that aren’t
really even questions, you know
what I mean?”
“I know what to do if somebody touches me and says something awful to me, but the subtle
things are almost worse because
you can’t control it,” said Joyce
Thomas-Villaronga, president of
the local United Auto Workers
chapter. She reported her fears to
a supervisor and stopped answering the man’s calls. He, in turn,
complained about her being unresponsive. “People are finding
their way in a new system,” she
said.
In Silicon Valley, the chief executive of a midsize company asked
his human resources manager
what he should do about the
undercurrent of tension around
issues of sexual misconduct. Stop
having dinners with female employees, he was advised. In fact,

indian wells, calif. — The
Kochs have boarded the Trump
train.
After pointedly declining to
support Donald Trump during
the 2016 presidential campaign,
billionaire industrialists Charles
and David Koch and their network of conservative donors are
pragmatically embracing pieces
of the administration’s policy
agenda.
The strategy was on vivid display this weekend at a resort here
in the desert outside Palm
Springs, Calif., where more than
500 megadonors who each contribute at least $100,000 annually to Koch-linked groups gathered for their twice-annual seminar.
On areas of agreement with the
president — from tax cuts to
deregulation and judicial nominations — the leaders of the
network now go out of their way
to heap praise on Trump.
Lunches okay, dinners
no way: Behavior toward
colleagues is shifting
Republican lawmakers in a
half-dozen states are launching
fresh efforts to expand Medicaid,
the nation’s health insurance program for the poor, as party holdouts who had blocked the expansion say they’re now open to it
because of Trump administration
guidelines allowing states to impose new requirements that program recipients work to get benefits.
In Utah, a Republican legislator
working with the GOP governor
says he hopes to pass a Medicaid
expansion plan with work requirements within the year. In
Idaho, a conservative lawmaker
who steadfastly opposed Medicaid expansion in the past says the
new requirements make him
more open to the idea. And in
Wyoming, a Republican senator
who previously opposed expansion — a key part of President
Barack Obama’s health-care law —
says he’s ready to take another
look at fellow Republicans’ expansion efforts in his state.
Moderate Republicans in North
Carolina, Virginia and Kansas are
similarly renewing calls to take up
Medicaid expansion, though it’s
unclear if there will be quite
enough conservative support or
whether Democrats would con-

Gordon Castro’s remains are
among scores that have been left
at the Wall over the years, in gestures of devotion, but in a practice
the National Park Service is now
trying to stop.
With an aging population of
Vietnam veterans, the 50th anniversary of the worst year of fighting and Ken Burns’ powerful Vietnam War documentary, the Park
Service said, there has been an
increase in remains being left.
“It’s been happening for years
and years,” said Janet Folkerts, a
Park Service curator. “But it’s becoming more and more of an issue
. . . It’s something that we have to
definitely deal with.”
This past fall, signs were erected at the Wall telling visitors that

shows the whereabouts of people
who use fitness devices such as
Fitbit also reveals highly sensitive information about the locations and activities of soldiers at
U.S. military bases, in what appears to be a major security
oversight.
The Global Heat Map, published by the GPS tracking company Strava, uses satellite information to map the locations and
movements of subscribers to the
company’s fitness service over a
two-year period, by illuminating
areas of activity.
Strava says it has 27 million
users around the world, including people who own widely available fitness devices such as Fitbit
and Jawbone, as well as people
who directly subscribe to its
mobile app. The map is not live

When Vietnam veteran Gordon
J. Castro died six years ago, his
older brother, Leon, had him cremated and placed his remains in a
specially inscribed, stainless-steel
box.
He glued on Gordon’s Purple

1st Cavalry Division insignia.
Then he got into his Ford pickup, put the box on the passenger
seat and drove from Corpus Christi, Tex., to the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial in Washington to fulfill
his brother’s wish that he be laid to
rest at the Wall.
It was hard to leave him so far
from home, Leon Castro said, but
Gordon had said he “left the better

White House legislative affairs
director Marc Short was asked
directly on “Fox News Sunday”
whether Trump wanted to fire
Muller last summer. He responded carefully.
“I’m not aware the president
ever intimated that he wanted to
fire Robert Mueller,” Short said.
He declined to say what Trump
would do if Congress acted to
make it more difficult for him to
get rid of the special counsel.
“I don’t know, hypothetically,”
he said.
Democrats have advocated
proceeding with the proposals to
reinforce Mueller’s standing,
even as many Republican lawmakers and aides have shown
little urgency about acting. Senate Minority Leader Charles E.
Schumer (D-N.Y.) has said Democrats will try to add the protections during the government
spending negotiations.
Not all Democrats are embracing that tactic. Asked Sunday on
CNN whether it would be a good
idea, Sen. Joe Manchin III
(D-W.Va.), a centrist facing reelection this year, said that it would
be “premature for us to go down
that road.”

point emerges.
“It’s very sophisticated, because it shows abstract thinking,”
Weinstein-Evron said. “You have
to plan ahead what you want to
get from a certain core.”
Shara Bailey, an anthropologist at New York University who
specializes in fossil teeth, said she
found the conclusions about the
identity and the age of the jawbone convincing — and not too
shocking. The history of humanity has grown increasingly complex in recent years.
Traditionally, scientists pegged
the migration of Homo sapiens
out of Africa to some time between 75,000 and 60,000 years
ago. That date is inscribed in
DNA: genetic analyses of people
from Europe, Asia, Australia and
the Americas suggest they all descend from explorers who left Africa during this period.
Excavations in China have uncovered fragmentary evidence of
breeding between Neanderthals
and modern humans as early as
113,000 years ago. DNA analysis of
remains from mysterious people
known as the Denisovans suggests an ancient world that looked
like author J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle
Earth — except instead of hobbits,
elves and dwarves wandering
around, our planet had many species of interacting, interbreeding
hominins.
Bailey was part of a team of
researchers who last year reported the discovery of Homo sapiens
fossils in Morocco that were at
least 300,000 years old.
With so much evidence to push
back the timeline of humans’ evolution and exploration, Bailey
said, “it’s not that surprising that
we’re going to start seeing them
outside of Africa” at an early stage.
“Of course,” she added, “they
haven’t gone very far.”
They also probably did not last
very long; modern humans’ DNA
bears no genetic signal of such an
early migration, Potts noted.
Despite that — or really, because of it — the jawbone raises
many more questions than it answers, said Israel Hershkovitz, an
anthropologist at Tel Aviv University and the lead author of the
study.
For example, the age of the
jawbone implies that Homo sapiens overlapped with Neanderthals and other hominin species
during our ventures (or misadventures) in western Asia. So
what happened? Did interbreeding during this time period lead to
the later fossils found in China? It
is possible, he said.
Meanwhile, Potts posed the
question that is asked about all
vanished societies: What went
wrong?
“Why didn’t they begin the
process of worldwide colonization?” he asked. “Were they perhaps too isolated from other
groups? Were they not able to
withstand environmental changes that challenged their survival?”
The answers will not just explain the demise of the jawbone’s
owner, Potts said. It may also help
us understand the success of
those who followed in his or her
footsteps 100,000 years later.

An ancient jawbone uncovered
from a collapsed cave on the coast
of Israel is at least 175,000 years
old, and it belonged to a member
of our own species. Sophisticated
stone tools were discovered nearby.
The find, reported last week in
the journal Science, is by far the
oldest human fossil uncovered
outside Africa, where Homo sapiens originated. It pushes back the
timeline of when modern humans
began venturing to other continents by about 60,000 years and
suggests that people made several
short-lived excursions into Eurasia millennia before we finally
conquered the globe.
The owner of this jawbone was
one of those early explorers — a
tangent in the story of humanity,
said Rick Potts, director of the
Human Origins Program at the
Smithsonian’s National Museum
of Natural History. Potts, who was
not involved in the discovery,
compared the Israeli fossil with
the remains of failed colonization
attempts such as the Viking settlements in Newfoundland.
“It’s inherently fascinating and
interesting,” he said. “Not only
throughout history but deep into
our prehistory, there have been
these pioneers . . . that were not
able to survive.”
The jawbone, with eight teeth
still in it, was excavated from Misliya Cave on the western slopes of
Israel’s Mount Carmel. Today, the
site is little more than a jumble of
rubble shadowed by a rock overhang. Yet from about 250,000 to
150,000 years ago, before it col-
lapsed, the cavern was vast and
deep. From this high perch above
the sea, the resources of the Mediterranean, the coastal plain and
the forested mountain range were
within easy reach. According to
University of Haifa archaeologist
Mina Weinstein-Evron, a co-author of the Science study, this was
a perfect shelter for ancient hominins — the group that includes
humans and our extinct relatives.
Weinstein-Evron has worked at
the Misliya site for nearly two
decades, uncovering scores of discarded tools, animal bones, even
evidence of fire — discoveries that
span the 100,000 years in which
the cave was in use. The jawbone
is the only remnant of any hominin species found so far.
“It was very exciting,” she said
of the discovery. “A full jaw with all
the teeth . . . is not something you
find very often.”
The fossil lacked the pronounced shovel-shaped canines
of a Neanderthal, and it had the
straight-edged incisors characteristic of our species. The shape of
its jaw also resembled our own.
Weinstein-Evron and her colleagues spent more than a decade
analyzing the remains and sought
to determine their age using three
dating methods. Collectively, the
results indicate that the fossil is
somewhere between 177,000 and
194,000 years old.
Uncovered alongside the fossil
were stone points made using an
advanced form of stone knapping
called the Levallois technique.
This method involved carefully
cutting a stone around the outline
of a desired shape, so that when
the final blow is struck, a perfect

“It would certainly not hurt to
put that extra safeguard in place,
given the latest stories,” she said.
Late last year, Collins was cooler
toward the idea of moving to
shield Mueller.
In the House, where GOP lawmakers have tended to align
themselves more closely with
Trump, McCarthy showed no appetite for moving ahead with
those kinds of bills.
“I don’t think there’s a need for
legislation right now to protect
Mueller,” McCarthy said on NBC’s
“Meet the Press.” He said Trump
and his team “have fully cooperated” with the investigation.
McCarthy expressed confidence in Mueller but questioned
the motivations of some others in
the FBI and Justice Department
who have been involved in the
probe, citing the revelations of
politically charged texts disparaging Trump. Graham voiced a
similar sentiment.
Trump sought the firing of
Mueller last June and backed off
only after White House Counsel
Donald F. McGahn threatened to
resign, two people familiar with
the episode confirmed on Thursday.

Republicans in Congress were
divided Sunday over protecting
special counsel Robert S. Mueller
III, with two senators embracing
plans to make it more difficult for
President Trump to have him
fired but a top House lawmaker
declaring them unnecessary.
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham
(R-S.C.) highlighted his proposal
to check Trump’s power over
Mueller, while Sen. Susan Collins
(R-Maine) said it wouldn’t hurt to
pass legislation along those lines.
But House Majority Leader
Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said
there was no need to pass such a
measure, as he defended how the
president and his team have navigated Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
The GOP discord came just
days after the revelation that
Trump sought Mueller’s ouster
last June, prompting Democrats
to make a renewed pitch for
Congress to shore up the special
counsel’s standing. It underscored the growing split in the
Republican
Party
between
Trump loyalists and others who
are becoming increasingly con-
cerned with the president’s actions.
That rift presents a challenge
for lawmakers hoping to place
new limits on Trump’s authority.
Republicans control both chambers of Congress, and many in the
party have been reluctant to take
a hostile posture toward the president, who holds considerable
influence over the conservative
base despite his low approval
ratings nationally.
“I have got legislation protecting Mr. Mueller. And I’ll be glad
to pass it tomorrow,” Graham
said on ABC’s “This Week with
George Stephanopoulos.” He was
referring to a proposal he unveiled last August with Sen. Cory
Booker (D-N.J.) to require a panel
of judges to review any decision
to fire a special counsel before it
is final.
“Everybody in the White
House knows it would be the end
of President Trump’s presidency
if he fired Mr. Mueller,” Graham
said.
Sens. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and
Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.)
have offered a similar plan. Collins said on CNN’s “State of the

America’s safe (drug-flooded) cities
One reason for falling homicide rates: Smartphones have made the illegal narcotics trade more predictable, less lethal
BY
N ICK M IROFF
The use of illegal narcotics in
the United States has varied over
the years, but by many accounts —
including the president’s — the
nation has never been so high on
drugs.
Seizures of methamphetamine
and heroin at the Mexican border
have surged. Cocaine use is spiking again. The opioid epidemic
has pushed overdose deaths past
60,000 per year, a record.
“We used to have the ‘Age of
Aquarius.’ Everyone thought that
was a big drug age,” President
Trump said this month, referencing the 1960s counterculture.
“That was nothing compared to
this.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
is set to deliver a speech Monday
in Pittsburgh on two of his signature issues: violent crime and the
opioid epidemic. He has implemented a tough new charging and
sentencing policy, urging federal
prosecutors to use every available
tool to crack down on violence.
And late last year he announced
that anyone who illegally possesses, imports, distributes or manufactures fentanyl — a powerful
synthetic opioid — can face criminal prosecution.
The president and his attorney
general have blamed the drug
boom for “American carnage,” but
the latest crime statistics suggest
that the relationship between illegal narcotics and violence in U.S.
cities is not so clear.
In Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles and other hubs of the drug
trade, the homicide rate decreased
last year. Major American cities
appear to be getting safer even as
they are flooding with dope.
Nowhere is this trend more pronounced than in New York City.
Inundated with heroin and fentanyl, the city tallied nearly 1,400
fatal overdose deaths in 2016, a
record. But police reported just
290 homicides last year, the lowest
total since 1951 and an 87 percent
drop from 1990, when there were
2,245 killings.
The odds of being killed in New
York City are about the same today
as they are in Montana or Wyoming, even at a time of recordbreaking narcotics seizures.
In Los Angeles, the biggest West
Coast hub for heroin, cocaine and
methamphetamine, homicides
fell 6 percent in 2017; in Los Angeles County, they fell 20 percent.
The homicide rate also dropped by
double digits last year in Houston,
Washington and even Chicago,
where violence was so bad a year
ago that Trump threatened to
“send in the Feds.”
These statistics present what
appears to be a broad, long-term
decoupling of homicide rates and
the illegal drug trade in many U.S.
cities, a trend that counters conventional wisdom about the origins of urban violence.
Criminologists see many potential factors, but one may play the
biggest role in reducing drugrelated killings: smartphones.
Just as mobile technology has
transformed ordinary commerce,
it has revolutionized illicit markets, too, making the drug trade
more predictable and less lethal.
GPS mapping, encrypted communications and messaging apps
have vastly reduced the need for
drug dealers to physically control
urban spaces and defend them
with deadly force, experts say.
“The technology of retail drug
dealing has shifted radically, especially over the past 10 years,” said
Mark Kleiman, a criminologist at
New York University. “It’s no longer people standing on street corners. It’s hand-to-hand transactions between people with cellphones, and they’re not vulnerable in the same way.”
Added Kleiman: “It’s also harder for police to disrupt.”
There are many U.S. cities
where the drug trade still largely
operates in traditional ways, including Baltimore, whose 343 killings last year were an all-time
high. Open-air drug markets remain engines of violence in
St. Louis, New Orleans and other
cities with elevated homicide
rates.
But that business model is no
longer dominant everywhere, and
certainly not in cities with large
numbers of middle-class drug users who can arrange deliveries on
iPhones instead of driving into
high-crime neighborhoods.
Federal narcotics agents last
month busted a heroin distribution ring in Southern California
dubbed “Manny’s Delivery Business,” whose dispatchers took
hundreds of orders per day for
heroin and cocaine, sending couriers to meet customers at designated spots. The Drug Enforcement
Administration called it “a heroin
said, “and the distribution networks are not primarily controlled
by large gangs.”
Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of MissouriSt. Louis, said the opioid crisis
appears to be the biggest factor
behind rising homicide levels
among white Americans since
2014. But he said the increase
probably would be far higher “if
we still had as many of the streetlevel drug markets that were widespread 25 years ago.”
Disciplined business strategy
There appears to be another element to the new era of American
narcotics trafficking that also may
explain the homicide trends: a deliberate effort by Mexican drug cartels to minimize the use of violence
on the U.S. side of the border.
The same smuggling organizations that have pushed Mexico’s
homicide rate to its highest-ever
levels operate by a different logic in
the United States, just like the large
corporations that leverage economic advantages afforded by the
North American Free Trade Agreement.
Diverging levels of violence
along the U.S.-Mexico border illustrate the pattern. Cities such as El
Paso and San Diego have some of
the lowest homicide rates in the
United States, despite sitting opposite Ciudad Juarez and Tijuana,
two of Mexico’s most murderous
places.
The lack of a “spillover” effect is
thought to be at least partly the
result of a disciplined business
strategy that seeks to avoid the attention of U.S. law enforcement,
said Sam Quinones, author of
“Dreamland: The True Tale of
America’s Opiate Epidemic.”
Unlike the Colombian trafficking groups whose attempts to take
over drug markets in Miami, New
York and other American cities produced a wave of homicides a generation ago, modern Mexican traffickers largely eschew violence on
the U.S. side.
“They have a very acute sense for
the enormous difference between
the criminal justice in Mexico and

distribution machine.”
In Houston, where the homicide rate decreased 11 percent in
2017, narcotics officers have
learned to watch online commerce such as EC21. A search for
“fentanyl” on the site will show
zero results. But spelling it “fentanylll” reveals a thumbnail photo of
white powder with a phone number and an email address, possibly
from a shipper in China.
“When I first started in narcotics in 1998, you’d drive into an
apartment complex and have people reaching in your window,” said
Lt. Stephen Casko, a Houston narcotics officer. “Now you can just
order drugs through the mail and
never have to deal with another
person.”
Postal inspectors at New York’s
John F. Kennedy International
Airport seized nearly 80 fentanyl
shipments last year, a threefold
increase from 2016. Federal agents
in Atlanta last summer arrested
16 postal workers, accusing them
of taking bribes to deliver kilosized loads of cocaine with their
mail trucks.
An open-air drug market
Sanho Tree, an advocate of drug
decriminalization at the Institute
for Policy Studies in Washington,
said there is “no organic link” between drugs and violence. “But
there is one between illegal drug
markets and violence,” he said.
Drug dealing in the 1960s and
1970s was relatively nonviolent,
Tree said: “Usually it was a dealer
with a backpack going door to
door to make private deliveries.”
That changed with the introduction of mandatory minimum
sentencing, he said, which left
street-level dealers facing long
prison terms. “It made it too risky
to hold a backpack full of drugs, so
that created a market incentive for
an open-air drug market model
operated by minors — lookouts,
runners and so forth” — who
would not face the same harsh
penalties.
Dominating and defending
physical space were the key to big
profits. “That’s why street corners
became so valuable,” Tree said.
Rates of violent crime in the
United States — homicides in particular — peaked in the 1980s and
early 1990s, when cities were besieged by crack cocaine. But when
use of the drug waned, along with
falling levels of cocaine and heroin
consumption, homicide rates also
receded. Today, the nation’s per
capita homicide rate is about half
what it was in 1985. Criminologists attribute the drop to a range
of factors, including better policing, more job opportunities and
even the possibility of declining
lead exposure.
After reaching historic lows in
2014, homicide rates in many U.S.
cities rose abruptly in 2015 and
2016. Experts have noted that even
with these increases, violent crime
levels remained near historically
low levels and were much higher a
quarter-century ago, but the sudden rebound became a focal point
for Trump and his administration’s law-and-order initiatives.
“Violent crime is back with a vengeance,” Sessions declared, promising to remedy it with tougher
prison sentences, a crackdown on
illegal immigration and the transfer of more military hardware to
police departments.
Nationwide, the number of homicides rose 1.5 percent during
the first six months of 2017, compared with the same period a year
prior, while violent crime overall
— including rape, robbery and aggravated assault — was down
slightly, according to FBI data released in late January. Homicides
were up in the South and Midwest.
They were down significantly in
the Northeast and slightly in the
West.
Sessions, writing in USA Today,
characterized the new statistics as
evidence of the administration’s
early success. “When President
Trump was inaugurated, he made
the American people a promise:
‘This American carnage stops
right here and stops right now,’ ”
Sessions wrote, quoting from
Trump’s inaugural address. “It is a
promise that he has kept.”
But in many U.S. cities, the violence didn’t come back very far.
Some places that had the biggest
spikes, including Chicago and
Washington, once more have declining homicide rates.
The psychotic effects of narcotics also may be a factor, criminologists say. Whereas crack cocaine
often produces a rush of manic
energy and supreme confidence,
opioids leave users sedated and
perhaps less prone to violent behavior.
Unlike the crack cocaine epidemic of the 1980s, which hit poor
African Americans hardest, the
demographics of the opioid crisis
cut across geographic and class
divides. Many of today’s addicts
are middle-class users “who don’t
live in neighborhoods plagued by
violence,” said Volkan Topalli, a
professor of criminal justice at
Georgia State University.
“There isn’t a high baseline level of violence in those places,” he
criminal justice in the United
States,” he said. Fearful of a long
sentence in an austere U.S. federal
prison, the gangsters prefer to settle scores and adjudicate disputes
with rivals in Mexico, where fewer
than 5 percent of crimes lead to
criminal convictions.
Quinones’s book describes a
group of Mexican heroin dealers in
the Denver area, the “Xalisco Boys,”
whose couriers would drive around
delivering drugs in little balloons.
The drivers kept the balloons in
their mouths and carried water
bottles to gulp down the dope if
pulled over by police.
The heroin dealers rarely remained in one U.S. city for long, and
would cycle back and forth to Mexico often. They cared so little about
their street reputations that they
would sell to customers who had
robbed or cheated them, treating
the losses as business write-offs
rather than personal insults to be
avenged. They avoided high-crime
areas and didn’t carry guns.
“A lot of these guys were just shy
farm boys,” Quinones said. “They
were intimidated by the United
States, and definitely not interested in getting into internecine wars.”
And if the dealers felt threatened
by law enforcement officials, or rival traffickers, they would simply
pick up and move their mobile heroin business to another U.S. town
or city. They believed the violence
wasn’t worth the risk, Quinones
said, “and the market in the United
States was big enough for everyone.”
High-volume Mexican traffickers appear to operate similarly.
When DEA agents in New York
raided an apartment in Queens last
year and found 141 pounds of pure
fentanyl, they arrested a middleaged couple who had arrived from
Mexico a few weeks earlier.
It was the largest seizure of the
drug in U.S. history, worth tens of
millions of dollars, the DEA said.
But the couple didn’t even have a
weapon.

Lawmakers call on Trump to drop bid for legal immigration cuts
Focus on ‘dreamers’ and
border security, say
members of both parties
BY
D AVID N AKAMURA
Lawmakers in both parties
said Sunday that the immigration debate should focus narrowly on efforts to legalize young
immigrants known as “dreamers” and beef up border security,
suggesting
that
President
Trump’s demands to slash legal
immigration levels are likely to
sink a deal.
Democrats have voiced fierce
opposition to a White House
plan, released late last week, that
featured a path to citizenship for
1.8 million dreamers in exchange
for $25 billion for his border wall
and sharp cuts to family immigration visas.
Though Democratic leaders
have grudgingly offered wall
funding, they have accused the
president of leveraging the
dreamers as “ransom” to severely
constrict legal immigration, calling it a wish list for “anti-immigration hard-liners” and “white
supremacists.”
Capitol Hill lawmakers, including some Republicans, said
Sunday that the negotiations
have gone too far afield ahead of
a March 5 deadline after which
690,000 dreamers in an Obamaera deferred action program
could begin to lose their protections from deportation.
“It seems to me that the two
important things to tackle right
now . . . are to protect the dreamers and also to strengthen border
security,” Sen. Susan Collins, a
moderate Republican from
Maine, said on CBS’s “Face the
Nation.”
She called Trump’s proposals
to change legal immigration
“very important” but also “very
complicated.”
Appearing after Collins on the
same show, Reps. Will Hurd
(R-Tex.) and Pete Aguilar (DCalif.) — who have proposed a
House bill to provide legal status
to dreamers and bolster border
security — agreed that addressing the legal immigration system
in the negotiations over dreamers is implausible.
“I still believe that a narrow
bill is most important; the thing
that we can get through our
Congress, both houses, in the
House and in the Senate,” said
Hurd, who represents a district

ANDREW HARNIK FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
TOP: Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) says the president’s proposals to curb legal immigration
are “very important” but “very complicated.” ABOVE: Rep. Will Hurd (R-Tex.), whose
district shares an 800-mile border with Mexico, wants a narrow bill that can be passed.
with more than 800 miles of
border with Mexico. “Because
the more things you add, you
start creating coalitions of opposition. And so let’s keep this
narrow.”
White House officials rejected
suggestions that the president
was asking for too much. In
rolling out his plan last week,
aides called the citizenship path
for dreamers a potential lure for
additional illegal immigration
and said the proposed border
security increases — including
more immigration agents and
judges — would help prevent it.
They said the curbs to family
immigration — which Trump
and other conservatives have referred to as “chain migration” —
would help offset a surge in
legalized immigrants represented by the dreamers, who have
been in the country since they
were children.
White House legislative director Marc Short said Sunday that
Trump was willing to incur some
criticism from his hard-right
base by supporting the dreamers
in order to change the immigration system.
“We feel that is certainly worth
it if we can help to fix this
problem once and for all, which
is the other parts of the proposal
the president has put forward,”
Short said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Referring to the Senate and
House Democratic leaders, Short
added: “The question is, are
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi going to provide cover for their
members from the radical leftleaning base? So far, they are not
showing the same leadership.”
Congressional efforts at comprehensive immigration reform
failed under presidents George
W. Bush and Barack Obama. In
Once wary, Koch groups say they can work with Trump
KOCHS FROM A1
On areas of disagreement
where they were once outspoken
— such as supporting free trade,
advocating more open borders
and opposing deficit spending —
network officials now tread carefully to downplay divisions and
avoid antagonizing Trump.
“You’ve got to meet people
where they are,” said Mark Holden, a top network official and the
general counsel at Koch Industries.
The approach is giving Koch
officials a seat at the table —
entree to the White House that
they hope will allow them to
shape Trump’s approach on issues such as immigration and
infrastructure this year.
Tim Phillips, president of
Americans for Prosperity, the network’s main advocacy arm,
praised Trump’s staff for involving the network in talks “from
day one” about what a tax code
overhaul might look like.
Phillips said 2017 was “the
most productive year . . . in the
existence of this network” at the
federal level. “A lot of the policies
they’ve put forward in the first
year have been good ones,” he
said.
He added, “We really don’t get
caught up in all the other extraneous stuff out there.”
In the coming year, as the
network looks to further influence federal policy, it will also be
working to protect the GOP majorities in Congress that it spent
tens of millions to secure. In all,
Koch-aligned groups plan to
spend between $300 million and
$400 million on politics and policy in the 2018 cycle — likely in
the high end of that range, officials said. That’s up from
$250 million in the 2016 elections.
At a dusk cocktail reception on
Saturday, Charles Koch, 82, described his “collaboration philosophy” as being willing to work
with anyone, even if they agree on
only one issue.
PATRICK T. FALLON FOR THE WASHINGTON POST

Groups aligned with the
business executives and
brothers Charles (top) and
David Koch plan to spend up to
$400 million on politics and
policy advocacy in the 2018
election cycle, officials say.
“We have now increasingly followed the philosophy that made
Frederick Douglass such an effective social-change entrepreneur,”
Koch said, referring to the
famous abolitionist, as donors
sipped cocktails on a lush green
lawn with views of the pink-hued
mountains. “And that is, as he put
it, ‘Unite with anybody to do
right, and no one to do wrong.’ ”
That has meant seizing on
small victories.
One of the network’s top priorities has been an overhaul of the
criminal justice system. For the
past several years, leaders of the
group have pushed to roll back
mandatory minimum sentencing
laws and stiffen the burden of
proof for the government to put
people in prison.
The effort looked doomed
when Trump ran as a law-andorder candidate and appointed
Attorney General Jeff Sessions,
who had been the single biggest
opponent of such reforms when
he was in the Senate. Indeed,
Sessions has ordered U.S. attorneys to prosecute crimes to the
fullest extent of the law.
Rather than loudly criticizing
Sessions, the network has sought
out common ground and sympathetic allies inside the administration. It decided to focus on
pushing legislation and programs to help convicts reenter
society, in part because network
officials believe they have persuaded Sessions and Trump to
support those efforts.
Holden, who was once a corrections officer in Massachusetts,
said he has spent the past seven
months in talks about the effort
with Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and a senior
White House adviser. Kushner’s
father, Charles, was sentenced to
two years in prison in 2005 after
being convicted on federal charges of tax evasion, witness tampering and making illegal donations.
“That experience informed
him,” Holden said of Jared Kushner in an interview. “How could it
not? He talks about it all the time.
He’s as passionate as I am.”
That kind of pragmatism has
guided the network’s approach to
other issues, such as immigration.
At last year’s seminar, held
here a week after Trump’s inauguration, the group put out a
strongly worded statement criticizing Trump’s travel ban. In
2016, Charles Koch called
Trump’s proposal to ban Muslim
immigrants “antithetical to our
approach” and described the suggestion that Trump might require
Muslims to register as “reminiscent of Nazi Germany.”
But this weekend, the Koch
network put out a carefully worded statement that praised the
immigration framework Trump
rolled out last week. It offered
support for granting permanent
legal status to “dreamers,” undocumented immigrants who were
brought to the country illegally as
children or who overstayed their
visas as children, but also said the
network cannot support “arbitrary” caps on legal immigration.
Brian Hooks, president of the
Charles Koch Foundation, urged
reporters to emphasize the nuanced critique and noted that his
team has been talking about the
issue with the White House. He
said it was especially important
to convey that the Koch network
thinks the Trump proposal is
“thoughtful, specifically in how it
offers legal certainty for ‘dreamers.’ ”
“We think this is progress, and
we want to be a part of the
progress,” said Hooks. “We intend
to continue to play a productive
role . . . to find a solution to the
dreamers.”
Frank Baxter, a Koch donor
who was George W. Bush’s ambassador to Uruguay and who did
not support Trump for president,
said he is “pleasantly surprised at
some of the outcomes” under the
Trump presidency so far and
hopes for a “rational” immigration policy that takes care of
dreamers.
“I was certainly opposed to the
way he talked about immigration
and the way he talked about
trade,” said Baxter, a founding
board member of a charter school
in Los Angeles. “But what I’m
beginning to see is him stumbling
toward a good immigration policy — something I care very much
about, because so many of our
students are immigrants.”
Several other donors said in
interviews that they were happy
with the moves by national GOP
leaders.
“In general, we’re pleased with
the Senate because of the tax
reform bill. It wasn’t perfect, but
it was a great compromise to get
it through,” said Doug Deason, a
Dallas businessman who supported Trump’s bid in 2016. “In it,
of course, they repealed the individual mandate in the Affordable
Care Act, which was great. That
essentially shot a hole in the boat
of ACA. We’re very pleased with
that.”
This weekend’s gathering is
the largest donor meeting since
Charles Koch began hosting the
gatherings in 2003. There are
roughly 700 “investors” who contribute a minimum of $100,000
annually to the network, and
about 550 came to California for
the confab, which continues
through Monday night, officials
said. There are 160 first-time
attendees.
The once closely guarded
meetings were opened to reporters in recent years, on the condition that donors in attendance
are not identified without their
consent.
Among the GOP officials who
made appearances this weekend
were Sen. John Cornyn of Texas,
Sen. Todd C. Young of Indiana,
Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey,
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, Rep.
Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee
and Rep. Mark Meadows of North
Carolina.
As the Koch network looks to
have a voice on policy, it already
has influential allies inside the
Trump administration. Most
prominent among them is Marc
Short, who previously oversaw
political operations for the Kochs
and is now the White House
liaison to Capitol Hill. Lesserknown alumni of the network
work inside agencies that are
rolling back protections for federal lands and environmental regulations.
A top priority for the coming
year is Trump’s expected infrastructure proposal, an issue that
network officials have already
been discussing with the administration, they said. James Davis,
who runs communications for
the network, said their goal is to
make sure that there is no increase in the gas tax.
“We’ll have to see whatever
plan comes forward before we
can say whether we’d support it,”
Davis said. “One thing we won’t
support is just throwing money
toward projects that are a waste.”

michelle.lee@washpost.com
2013, the Senate approved bipartisan legislation that would have
offered a path to citizenship for
the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants, build or
renovate 700 miles of border
fencing and enact significant
changes to family immigration
and work visa programs — but
the GOP-controlled House did
not allow a vote on that bill.
Negotiators from both parties
said after meeting with Trump at
the White House two weeks ago
that they had agreed to narrow
the talks to four categories — the
future of the dreamers, border
security, cuts to family immigration and the diversity visa lottery,
which Trump wants to eliminate.
Trump’s plan would terminate
the ability of U.S. citizens to
apply for green cards — awarding
permanent legal residence — for
their parents and siblings. The
nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute estimated that the proposal could annually drop the
number of green cards by at least
288,000 — 36 percent of the total
number last year.
In a private meeting with a
smaller bipartisan group, Trump
reportedly used a vulgar word to
describe Haiti, El Salvador and
African countries and asked
aloud why the United States
could not have more immigrants
from countries like Norway —
sparking widespread outrage
and prompting calls from immigrant rights groups for Democrats to hold a harder line in the
talks.
“It’s offensive for a number of
reasons just on pure policy,” Greg
Chen, director of government
relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association,
said of the president’s bid to
slash family immigration. “It
takes us back generations, to a
time of far more restrictive immigration at the turn of the 20th
century. It disregards the incredibly positive impact immigration
has had on the country in terms
of economic and social benefits.”
He noted that the family immigration programs, implemented
in 1965, initially favored those
from European countries but
have since evolved to cover more
immigrants from Asia and Latin
America.
“It’s striking that now the
administration wants to entertain a whole litany of topics that
amounts to comprehensive reform,” Chen said. “What is likely
to get done in this environment
is something much more
limited.”

Rubio fires
chief of sta≠
over claims of
misconduct
BY
S EAN S ULLIVAN
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has
fired his chief of staff after looking into allegations of “improper
conduct,” the senator announced
late Saturday.
Rubio said in a written statement that he had “sufficient evidence to conclude” that his chief
of staff, Clint Reed, “had violated
office policies regarding proper
relations between a supervisor
and their subordinates.” Rubio
also concluded that this led to
actions that “amounted to threats
to withhold employment benefits.”
The senator said that he had
“taken steps to ensure that those
impacted by this conduct have
access to any services they may
require now or in the future” and
that he will notify the appropriate
congressional administrative offices Monday. He said he would
not provide any further details
about the “incidents” in accordance with “the wishes of those
victimized by this conduct.”
Reed could not immediately be
reached to comment early Sunday. A former presidential campaign aide to Rubio, then later his
Senate campaign manager, Reed
was chosen to be chief of staff in
December 2016, a little more than
a month after Rubio was elected
to a second Senate term.
Rubio said he first learned of
the accusations against Reed on
Friday afternoon, after they were
directly reported to him. By Saturday afternoon, Rubio said, he
had gathered evidence that led
him to conclude that Reed had
violated office policies.
On Saturday evening, Rubio
said, he traveled from Florida
back to Washington and “terminated [Reed’s] employment effective immediately.”

Leaving mementos at the Wall
has been a tradition since the polished stone memorial bearing the

dead was dedicated in 1982.
Hundreds of thousands of letters, photographs, jungle boots,
stuffed animals, sculptures, dog

cigars, a piece of a helicopter rotor
blade and human remains have
been left.
The artifacts are gathered and
stored in the Park Service’s large
Museum Resource Center in suburban Maryland. The human cremains are kept in a locked metal
cabinet with the windows papered
over.
About 70 cremains — some in
containers, some scattered — have
been left at the Wall over the years,
said Folkerts, a curator at the resource center. The first were left in
1990, she said. The most recent
appeared several weeks ago.
Thirty-one have been left in the

Dick Lundskow’s family and
friends left two small manila packets there this past Memorial Day.
He wasn’t a veteran but was devoted to veterans’ causes, his daughter Angela Childers said, and
would have wanted part of him

Some cremains are in wooden,

small pill-style boxes. Some are in

erans Day weekend, 1990.
A small gold cylinder left in May
2011 has a taped-on label, reading:
SFC William R Shales
174th assault helicopter company
Retired 20 years of service
3 tours of Viet Nam
1937 - 2011 Rest in peace.
An envelope containing the cremains of Roger B. Probst Sr. was
left June 21, 1991. Someone had
written on the envelope: “You finally made it. Enjoy your reunion . . . ”
Many of the containers are not
marked with a name, said Laura
Anderson, curator for the Mall
and Memorial Parks.
“We don’t have a way of knowing if it’s even a Vietnam vet,” she
said. “Some of them could be other
family members. They could be
veterans from other wars. . . . We
don’t know.”
Spokesman Mike Litterst said
the remains can’t be added to the
Park Service’s official collections.
“We’re not permitted,” he said.
“And right now, we don’t have an
answer for what to do with these
remains. But we do know that they
won’t become part of the collections.”
Anderson, in an interview at the
resource center this month, said:
“We’ve been talking for a long time
now about what to do about it . . .
trying to come up with a policy for
how we want to handle this.
“Because we’re not really
equipped,” she said. “I imagine it’s
a big decision — what do you do
with your loved one — especially if
somebody is asking to be left here.
You want to honor those wishes.
But we’re not allowed to accept
them.”
Most parks do allow the scattering of remains under certain circumstances and with a permit.
But rules vary from park to park,
according to regulations provided
by Litterst.
Shenandoah National Park allows scattering but does not allow
urns.
At Pearl Harbor, cremains of
survivors of the World War II attack on the USS Arizona can be
placed in urns aboard the sunken
wreck. And the ashes of Pearl Harbor attack survivors can be spread
in the harbor.
Yosemite National Park prohibits scattering from the air. It requires remains to be further “pulverized” after cremation and prohibits any publicity of the scattering event.
Colonial National Historical
Park, in Virginia, allows scattering
by air but from a minimum altitude
of 2,000 feet and not over developed
areas or bodies of water.
The Wall is unique.
“A lot of Vietnam veterans feel
very connected to the memorial,”
Folkerts said. “It speaks to them in
a way that many other places in
the country don’t. So they would
like to become part of it.”
Jan Scruggs, founder of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial
Fund, which built the Wall, said in
a email:
“Many veterans and their families want ashes spread at THE
WALL and will do as they please.
The vets want to be reunited with
those who they remember as ‘forever young’ who laid down their
lives in Vietnam, and to ease their
pain that time cannot heal.”
Leon Castro, 70, said that in the
final months of his brother’s life,
Gordon abruptly announced he
wanted his cremains left at the
Wall.
Both men had served in Vietnam but had rarely talked about
their experiences, he said in a telephone interview from Corpus
Christi. The men and their sister,
Linda, had been raised there by a
single mother who worked as a
secretary.
Leon, a retired carpenter, had
gone to Vietnam first, serving in
1966 and 1967.
Gordon entered the Army and
served in the infantry with the 1st
Air Cavalry Division in 1970 and
’71. He was once wounded by
shrapnel in a mortar attack, Leon
said.
He lived in Victoria, Tex., and
worked at a nearby Alcoa plant.
His sister said he was a gentle
person who played the violin and
did fine woodworking. He had
been married and divorced twice
and had no children.
But the brothers were very
close.
“We didn’t have a father and
grew up fairly poor,” Leon said.
Later, “we’d go ride motorcycles all
over.”
When Gordon got sick, he asked
to be cremated, Leon said. And
“one day, out of the blue, said he
wanted me to take his . . . remains
and leave them on the Wall.”
“I didn’t quite understand it,” he
said. “Trying to figure out why he
wanted that, I asked him, and he
just said he felt he left the better
part of himself” in Vietnam. “He
kind of felt he died there, sort of.”
His sister said he had made an
emotional visit to the Wall several
years ago and took rubbings of the
names of friends.
Gordon died April 20, 2012, age
61.
Leon had the box specially fabricated and engraved. He drove
the 1,600 miles from Corpus Christi to Washington in his red pickup.
It was a two-day drive. He said he
didn’t feel alone: “My brother was
with me.”
He said he stayed in a hotel in
Virginia and took a cab to the Wall.
“It was hard to leave him there,”
he said, his voice breaking. “I preferred to keep him close, but that’s
what he wanted.”
Leon put the box down near the
center of the Wall and walked
away. Feeling a pang, he went back
and picked it up, but then put it
down again and left.
“I look at this as a homecoming,” he wrote in a note he put with
the box.
Leon Castro said he had called
someone in the Park Service, he
believes at the resource center,
before he made the trip from Texas. He said he was told that it was
okay to leave the remains.
Litterst, the Park Service
spokesman, said that person was
mistaken or misinformed.
Asked about the agency’s new
effort to halt the practice, Leon
Castro said in an email:
“It is understandable. Caring for
the cremains of those Vets left at the
Wall is an eternal responsibility.”

Israeli officials, Christian zionist groups anxious over polls
ISRAEL FROM A1
working with the evangelical community, and now [Jews] are so
concerned with the diminishing
commitment they have to Israel,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, an
American Israeli who played a key
role in fostering the relationship
between American evangelicals
and Israel.
Pence’s speech to the Knesset
last week, deeply steeped in biblical references, was a testament to
the spiritually rooted support for
Israel in President Trump’s White
House. Pence himself has said he
is “an evangelical Catholic.”
America stands with Israel, he
told the lawmakers, because it
supports good over evil, and he
described the Jewish state as
Abraham’s “promised land,”
which, as it grows, reaches closer
to heaven.
Education Minister Naftali
Bennett, leader of the right-wing
Jewish Home party in Israel’s ruling coalition, said the Israeli right
is “very happy” with the relationship with U.S. evangelicals, explaining that evangelical influence on the White House has created an “era of opportunity” for
Israel.
“We need to use the opportunity to the best of Israel’s national
interests and security,” he said.
In the eyes of most Palestinians,
however, the influence of evangelicalism on the White House has
been disastrous for their relations
with the United States. Saeb Erekat, the Palestinians’ chief negotiator, slammed the “messianic
discourse” of Pence during his visit.
The idea of a Palestinian state
conflicts with the belief of some
evangelicals that the entire territory — from the Jordan River to
the Mediterranean Sea, including
the West Bank — was promised by
God to the Jewish people.
And those voices are becoming
louder. Evangelical lobbying
groups such as Christians United
for Israel, advocating views that
align more tightly with the Israeli
right, now rival the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in
their influence on behalf of Israel.
While AIPAC backs a two-state
solution, CUFI does not.
To welcome Pence, Mike Evans,
an American Christian Zionist, arranged to display 110 congratulatory billboards around Jerusalem.
MENAHEM KAHANA/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE/GETTY IMAGES
After a long romance, he said, the
visit was like a formal engagement
between evangelicals and Israel.
“When the friendship began
there was suspicion,” he said, adding that it was justified given the
“bloodstained” history of Christianity. “Then there was a little bit of
a courtship. But the time has
come.”
During a recent interview in an
office suite above the Friends of
Zion Museum, which he founded
to highlight Christian support for
Israel, Evans said that the White
House decision on Jerusalem
“100 percent happened because of
the evangelicals. No question.”
Evans met with Trump in the
Oval Office two days after the
decision and personally presented
him with a “Friends of Zion”
award — a silver menorah.
Israel’s ties to evangelicals date
to before the state was established, when British evangelical
leader William Hechler worked
with Theodor Herzl — known as

On January 29—the eve of President Trump’s historic first
State of the Union address—influential lawmakers and
plugged-in political analysts will preview the president’s
speech and look ahead to the coming legislative year.
Speakers will also assess the first year of Trump’s presidency,

closest relationship with Israelis
and the state of Israel. If an evangelical goes to one country, it’s
probably Israel. Secondly, the
shared experience of persecution
has been at the heart of that.”
While white evangelicals, who
make up three-quarters of American evangelicals, overwhelmingly
back Israel in its conflict with the
Palestinians, polls show that
younger ones are less attached to
Israel.
A poll released last month by
the evangelical firm LifeWay Research asked American evangelicals about their overall perception
of Israel. Among people over 65,
76 percent said it was positive,
compared with 58 percent among
those ages 18 to 34. About 30 percent of the people in the younger
group said they were “not sure,”
nearly double the figure for the
older group.
Falling support among U.S.
evangelicals younger than 30
“ought to keep every Israeli awake
at night,” said Yoav Fromer, who
teaches politics at Tel Aviv University. Writing last week in Yedioth
Ahronoth, Israel’s largest newspaper, he said: “Don’t let the vice
president’s immaculate hair and
white smile blind you: Pence is the
old America. The more one looks
at the breakdown of that support
for Israel, the more one sees a
troubling trend.”
Fromer added, “Even if Trump
is prepared to tolerate Israel’s continued control of the Palestinians
— his successors are unlikely to
follow suit.”
With polls showing younger
evangelicals increasingly exploring
the Palestinian perspective, more
evangelical groups have popped up
in the past few years to win over
those young hearts and minds.
The Hobby Lobby-backed Museum of the Bible Foundation in
Washington runs a program
called Passages, which — like the
Jewish “Birthright” — takes young
Christians to the Holy Land.
Aware that support among
American evangelicals may be
peaking, Israel is looking for evangelical backing elsewhere, in
countries where these communities are on the rise.
“It’s been an important element
in our diplomacy for some years,”
said Emmanuel Nahshon, a
spokesman for Israel’s foreign
ministry. “We do work with them
on a very, very close basis. It’s
something that’s been going on for
some years, but those evangelical
movements are becoming increasingly big.”
Countries in Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia all
have rapidly expanding evangelical communities.
“Now, you have a situation
where all the stars are aligned
beautifully,” Eckstein said. “You
have evangelicals in the White
House, you have Trump who is
susceptible to their influence and
their constituency, you have a
right-wing prime minister in government in Israel, and everything
is good.”
“But,” he said, “that can change
tomorrow, literally, in both cases.
Israel and America, that whole
thing, so it’s important to have
eggs in all the baskets.”

the father of Zionism — to advocate for a Jewish homeland.
But it has been a conflicted
relationship.
Over the past half-century,
many American evangelicals
came to support Israel through an
end-of-days theology. The idea —
popularized in the 1970 book “The
Late Great Planet Earth,” which
later became a movie with Orson
Welles, and the Left Behind series,
which began in the 1990s — is that
the establishment of Israel was
part of a preordained divine plan
preparing for the return of the
Messiah.
Many Jews, for their part, have
long viewed the missionary work
of evangelicals and their messianic, prophetic beliefs with suspicion. Christian proselytizing, although allowed in Israel, is
frowned upon by many Israelis,
and Messianic Jews, who believe
in Jesus, are largely shunned.
Eckstein says his efforts to foster a closer relationship and raise
evangelical money for Israel came
under attack for many years.
Eventually, however, evangelicals
became “kosher,” he said.
“Jews started to realize that
they were friends of Israel, and
then the Jewish community by
and large became very myopic in
their thinking,” he added. “They
are good for Israel, they are giving
them money for their projects. . . .
For a lot of Jews it was, let’s call it
utilitarian.”
Eckstein says his organization, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, has
become the largest philanthropy
in Israel. The group has pulled in
$1.5 billion in donations from
the United States since it was
founded in the 1980s, spending
the money primarily on social
programs and helping Jews
around the world to immigrate
to Israel. The supporters are
largely ordinary Americans,
with the average donation $76.
Still, some ultra-Orthodox Jewish groups in Israel refuse to take
the money.
The situation for Israel’s own
tiny evangelical population illustrates the paradox of the Israeli
relationship with evangelicals.
Pastor Steven Khoury, whose
Holy Land Missions has six affiliated churches, said Israel has
not officially recognized the
evangelical church, even though
its mission’s “calling” is toward
Arabs rather than Jews. The
evangelical church does not
qualify for tax benefits given to
religious institutions and lacks
“legitimacy,” he said.
Among American evangelicals,
the views toward Israel are also
not monolithic.
Johnnie Moore, a pastor and
marketing executive who serves
as unofficial spokesman for
Trump’s evangelical advisory
board, said evangelicals are
more sophisticated about the
Middle East than they are given
credit for.
In the case of evangelical leaders who urged the White House to
recognize Jerusalem, he said, “It’s
not like they feel: ‘The Trump
administration should make this
decision because the Bible says it.’
But they do think if they do this,
[America] will be blessed.”
The roots of evangelical views
on Israel run deep, he said. “Outside of the U.S., of all countries,
evangelicals probably have the

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
S TEVEN M UFSON
A tanker carrying liquefied natural gas from a sanctioned project
in Russia’s Arctic has arrived in
Boston Harbor, where it will be
offloaded for American users.
The giant tanker is carrying the
first LNG exported by the Yamal
facility, a $27 billion project whose
majority owner is the Russian
company Novatek. As of Sunday
evening, the tanker was in the
Mystic River at an LNG terminal,
where the liquefied cargo will be
turned back into gas form and
distributed to gas companies and
electric power utilities.
The Treasury Department issued sanctions aimed at weakening Russia’s energy sector in July
2014, after Russia annexed Crimea
and backed separatists in eastern
Ukraine. The sanctions forbid any
financing for projects belonging
to Novatek, Russia’s largest independent producer of natural gas.
But the Treasury sanctions do
not prohibit the purchase of natural gas that originated from Yamal,
according to experts on U.S. sanctions who spoke on the condition
of anonymity because they are not
authorized to speak for the U.S.
government.
A recent cold snap in New England and the shortage of pipeline
capacity from gas-rich Pennsylvania have created an appetite for
natural gas imports even as the
United States has begun exporting
LNG from other terminals on the
Gulf Coast. Earlier this month,
some utilities resorted to burning
relatively costly oil to meet demand.
The LNG terminal, owned by
the French multinational Engie,
has been in operation for more
than 40 years and meets about 20
percent of the demand for gas in
New England and the Northeast.
The LNG cargo in Boston Harbor did not come directly from
Yamal, but rather through a chain
of companies and locations.
The blue-hulled tanker in Boston Harbor is owned by Engie. The
cargo was picked up three weeks
ago at a storage terminal in Britain
called Grain, according to the industry newsletter LNG World
News.
In Britain, the cargo was the
subject of controversy. When the
LNG was on its way to Britain, the
Russian Embassy in London
tweeted: “Feeling cold? Help is on
the way — first shipment of LNG
from Russia arrives in UK today!”
It showed a photo of the tanker
that had picked up the cargo in
Russia.
But the owner of the Grain terminal, National Grid, tried to
dampen outcry there by saying
that the LNG was not needed and
would not be used in the United
Kingdom but would be reexported.
The LNG was delivered to Britain by the LNG tanker Christophe
de Margerie, whose namesake was
the late chief executive of Total, a
French company that owns 20 percent of the Yamal project. Total
was allowed to finish the project,
which was underway when sanctions were imposed. China National Petroleum owns 20 percent
of the project.
Other projects have been put on
ice as a result of international
sanctions. ExxonMobil dropped
plans to team up with Russian oil
company Rosneft to spend up to
$550 million in the Arctic. And
Royal Dutch Shell has suspended
a prospecting project with Gazprom in a large Russian shale-oil
field. Oil services giant Schlumberger has had trouble completing the purchase of a controlling
stake in the Russian exploration
company Eurasia Drilling.
The Christophe de Margerie is
among a fleet of 15 ice-breaking
tankers needed to reach the Yamal
project. It is in a remote region
where winter temperatures can
drop to minus-50 degrees Celsius.
Along the way to Boston, the
LNG changed hands another time.
At one point, it was sold to Petronas LNG UK, a British-based unit
of the Malaysian energy giant Petronas, according to LNG World
News. That could further blur the
lines of Treasury sanctions.
Most of the exports from the
Yamal LNG project are expected to
go to Asia.

RE
Canada banks on Trump’s hatred for red tape to save NAFTA
BY
D AVID J . L YNCH
Canadian negotiators will appeal to President Trump’s hatred
for red tape this week in a bid to
revive stalled talks over modernizing the North American Free
Trade Agreement, according to
David MacNaughton, Canada’s
ambassador to the United States.
In the sixth round of NAFTA
renegotiations being held in
Montreal this week, Canada will
propose several ways to reduce
the regulatory burden the treaty
places on the auto industry,
MacNaughton said in an interview with The Washington Post.
The aim is to reduce required
paperwork, making North American vehicle makers more competitive and indirectly addressing
the president’s demand to create
more U.S. manufacturing jobs, he
added.
“We think this is something
that would appeal to the president
and
his
advisers,”
MacNaughton said. “It will reduce the regulatory cost, which I
think is really important. That’s
an example of how we can create
a win-win-win.”
The president has repeatedly
boasted about achieving economic gains through deregulation, saying last month that his
administration has eliminated 22
rules for every new order issued.
MacNaughton, a former government affairs and public relations executive who has represented Canada in Washington for
two years, said negotiators could
meet the deadline they’ve set to
conclude the formal negotiations.
“We’re not going to get every
last t crossed and i dotted by the
end of March,” he said. “But that
doesn’t mean we can’t have a
success by the end of March.”
Canada has been on the defensive for months in the NAFTA
talks, following its dismissive response last year to U.S. demands
to overhaul several parts of the
1994 trade accord. A major sticking point has been the Trump
administration’s call to alter “the
rules of origin” governing the
vehicle trade among Canada, the
United States and Mexico.
Today, a vehicle can be shipped
duty-free from one NAFTA member to another so long as 62.5 percent of its components — such as
seats, hoses and fenders — originated in North America.
Labeling the existing deal unfair to the United States, the
Trump administration has proposed increasing the required
North American content to
85 percent and adding a new rule
that 50 percent of the content
originate in the United States for
cars and trucks coming from
Mexico and Canada.
The United States also wants vehicles covered by NAFTA to be manufactured from North Americanmade steel and aluminum.
With a typical vehicle model
containing perhaps 5,000 major
Informal proposal aims
to cut regulatory burden
on auto industry
components, tracking and verifying the national origin of all of them
is a mammoth job. Some carmakers have called for scrapping the
component list completely.
“They have to document in
minute detail where every subcomponent of that component
comes from. That’s the real cost
driver,” said Eric Miller, president
of Rideau Potomac Strategy
Group, an industry consultant.
Miller said he was not privy to
the new Canadian proposal, but
he said it probably centered on a
document called the “tracing list,”
which specifies the individual
parts covered by the rules of
origin. Reducing the number of
parts covered and updating the
list to reflect technological changes since the treaty went into effect
in 1994 would probably be part of
any deregulatory push, he said.
“One of the parts that’s on the
tracing list is cassette recorders.
But, you know, backup cameras
aren’t,” MacNaughton said in his
only elaboration of the new Canadian proposal.
Still, the new Canadian ideas
fall short of a formal proposal,
something that could irk U.S.
officials who have been impatient
for an official response to the
proposed U.S. rewrite of the treaty. A spokeswoman for the Office
of the U.S. Trade Representative
declined to comment.
In Montreal, negotiators have
begun trying to close the gaps
among the three nations.
“We don’t see a lot of value in
making a counterproposal, a for-
mal counterproposal right now.
We think we need to take a step
back and talk about ideas, generate some traction with some ideas
and move in that direction,” Steve
Verheul, Canada’s chief negotiator, told reporters, according to a
transcript distributed by the Canadian Embassy.

In widespread protests, Russians back call for boycott of presidential vote
BY A NTON T ROIANOVSKI
AND I SABELLE K HURSHUDYAN
murmansk, russia — From central Moscow to the Arctic, thousands of Russian protesters on
Sunday called for a boycott of the
upcoming presidential election
even as the authorities detained
organizers and raided the office of
opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
Police detained Navalny, who
branded the boycott a “voters’
strike” against Russian President
Vladimir Putin’s government,
shortly after the protests began.
But more than 1,000 people took to
one of Moscow’s central thoroughfares nevertheless. Thousands
more turned out on squares and
streets in St. Petersburg, in Siberia
and in places as remote as Murmansk, a port city in the far north
where the temperature Sunday afternoon was 8 degrees below zero
Fahrenheit.
“By sitting at home on our couch
and talking to friends, nothing will
change,” said Alexandra Sokolova,
a 31-year-old financial adviser who
joined the Moscow protest. “Maybe
my kids will live in a better country.”
The protests Sunday were unusual in their scope, with Navalny
supporters organizing some 115
events across the country. But they
appeared smaller than the demonstrations he orchestrated last June,
when Russian news media estimated that at least 50,000 people protested nationwide.
The protests are unlikely to have
an immediate political impact in
Russia, where voters will go to the
polls in the March 18 presidential
election and deliver what is expected to be a resounding endorsement
of a fourth term for Putin. But they
showed the resilience of a vocal
minority of Navalny supporters,
even in Russia’s far-flung regions,
who are willing to risk arrest to
back his grass-roots campaign to
unseat Putin.
“I support Navalny because I
want something to change,” said
Vita, a 19-year-old protester in Murmansk who declined to give her last
name. “It may be for better, it may
be for worse. I totally understand
that.”
While some Putin critics will be
on the March presidential ballot,
the most prominent one — Navalny
— will not. The anti-corruption activist launched the campaign for a
boycott of the vote after Russian
officials rejected his bid to run for

They object to a fourth term for President Vladimir Putin.
president last month because of a
past fraud conviction that he says
was politically motivated. Navalny’s camp says that without their
man on the ballot, the election is a
sham, and they hope to embarrass
the Kremlin by depressing turnout.
Navalny, analysts say, is playing a
long game this election season,
continuing to build up the infrastructure for a fight against Putin
that could last years. Navalny is
using his call for a boycott to ex-
pand a nationwide network of supporters. And he is honing his use of
social media to get around the
state-controlled television channels, which largely ignore him.
“I have been detained. But that
doesn’t matter,” Navalny’s Twitter
feed said Sunday afternoon alongside a video showing him being
pulled into a police bus. “You are
coming out not for me but for
yourself and your future.”
Police appeared to be focused on
disrupting Navalny’s efforts without detaining protesters en masse
or using a great deal of force. In
Murmansk, the local Navalny chapter reported that its two top staffers
were detained Sunday before the
protest began and later freed along
with 25 others. In Moscow, police
detained Navalny and sawed
through the doors of his Fund to
Fight Corruption, where a YouTube
live stream about the protests was
being produced.
Police lined the route of the protest in Moscow but made few arrests. Sokolova held up a sign that
used a diminutive form of Vladimir: “Stop reigning, Vovka, our
choice is protest.”
“I’m most afraid of what could
come over the next six years if I
don’t change something and if we
as a whole don’t change something,” said Paulina Gruseva, 22. “If
we don’t come out, then nothing
will change, for sure.”
In Murmansk, a city of
300,000 more than 150 miles north
of the Arctic Circle, more than 100
people gathered in front of a New
Year’s tree in the center of town
even though the city didn’t grant
permission for the demonstration.
Police dragged some of the Navalny
backers into a bus and tried to talk
some schoolchildren into leaving.
Watching from the fringe, a 50year-old named Natalia, who said
she worked in the education sector
and declined to give her last name,
said she was attending the first
protest of her life because Russian
media coverage was so one-sided.
“When people keep prodding
you in one direction, then you don’t
want to do what they are forcing
you to do, out of spite,” she said.
The head of the local Navalny
office, 28-year-old Violetta Grudina, said in an interview before she
was detained that her team’s mobilization efforts represented one
small step toward breaking
through the political apathy in this
remote region. Grudina said she
initially got involved in activism by
campaigning against higher prices
for public transit in 2016.
“People aren’t used to taking a
stand,” she said. “They’d rather sit
at home in the kitchen and talk
about how bad the authorities are.”

An ill-timed launch in Chechnya
On high, the republic’s elite opened a ski resort. Below, the head of a storied human rights group fought drug charges.
BY A NDREW R OTH
IN VEDUCHI, RUSSIA
The contrast in Chechnya was
stark.
High up on a mountaintop,
Ramzan Kadyrov and his vast entourage opened Chechnya’s first ski
resort at Veduchi, the latest prestige
project to symbolize the prosperity
and peace the strongman says his
rule has brought the republic.
Down below, Oyub Titiev, 60,
head of the local branch of a storied
human rights organization called
Memorial, sat in a courtroom cage
appealing his arrest on drug charges. He was promptly sent back to
jail.
Up above, ministers preened and
fretted over the lack of snowfall.
Down below, relatives sought dental care for Titiev’s fragile teeth and
waited in the cold outside the courthouse.
On high, little concern was given
to a year of horrifying reports about
forced disappearances, extrajudicial imprisonment and politicized
prosecutions.
Brazenly little, in fact.
“We aren’t stupid — I mean the
Chechen authorities, we understand we don’t need Titiev or any of
these uncomfortable questions by
planting narcotics on him,” said
Dzambulat Umarov, a minister in
the Chechen government whose
portfolio includes nationality politics and media relations.
He spoke with journalists in a
tent surrounded by fresh-faced volunteers and knickknacks for sale.
Fireworks exploded overhead. A
portrait of Kadyrov on horseback,
dressed like a medieval Russian
knight, leaned against one wall.
“There are a million ways to close
someone’s mouth,” Umarov said.
“And planting narcotics or killing
aren’t necessary. Everyone has career issues, financial issues, family
issues.”
It was an untimely opening for
Chechnya’s newest tourist attraction.
Kadyrov’s decade-long rule has
been marked by allegations of torture and collective punishments, but reports of the imprisonment and torture of more than 100
gay men last year in Chechnya
sparked public outrage and an underground effort to spirit those
men from the region.
Activists in the United States
who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that in the past year,
they had lobbied the Trump admin-

istration to sanction Kadyrov publicly, which it did last month by
putting him on a U.S. Treasury list,
and urged Facebook to kick the
Chechen leader off Instagram,
where he had several million followers.
“There was a lot of desire to try to
take away the thing that Kadyrov
prizes the most, which is — which
was — his very robust Instagram
account,” said one activist who
helped devise the successful campaign. “He used it to try to show he
was a good guy. It was his primary
propaganda tool.”
Titiev closely investigated a separate atrocity, first reported by the
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, above, at the opening of a ski
resort in Veduchi, top. His government is accused of human rights
abuses, and his name was recently put on a U.S. sanctions list.
daily Novaya Gazeta, when 27 people were reportedly killed by
Chechen law enforcement exactly
one year before Friday’s opening of
the Veduchi ski resort.
Now the Chechen government
seems ready to squeeze out Memorial, the last advocacy group cataloguing human rights abuses in the
republic. Colleagues say that Titiev,
who has headed Memorial in
Chechnya since the murder of Natalia Estemirova in 2009, is being
railroaded into a drug conviction
that would see the father of four
and former schoolteacher put in
prison for 10 years. Several activists
and journalists critical of Kadyrov
have been sentenced on drug
charges since 2014, including activist Ruslan Kataev in 2014 and journalist Zhalaudi Geriev in 2016. Both
said they were tortured by police.
So there was cause for concern
when it took six hours for lawyers to
locate Titiev for his appeal on
Thursday. When he finally appeared in court, he said he was fine,
but he wore a heavy coat zipped up
to his neck through the hearing and
spoke in subdued tones. Friends
predict a guilty verdict.
“This whole court case, everyone’s playing a role and we all know
the ending,” said a longtime friend
of Titiev’s, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of safety
concerns. “And in Titiev’s case, I
don’t even have the smallest hope.”
Up at the ski resort, Kadyrov had
played his role. His cortege of
matte-camouflage BMWs roared
up the mountainside, past women
swabbing their fences with mops
and dump trucks (a reported 800 in
total) hauling snow to the summit.
Up top, there were platters of meat
and plov, or pilaf, a retinue of Olympic champions and young, wellgroomed volunteers speaking English. Kadyrov on stage told a crowd
of several hundred, “They told us a
mountain resort in Chechnya
wasn’t viable.”
He yelled “Akhmad is strength!”
— a reference to his father, who led
Chechnya until he was assassinated
in 2004.
The ski resort has just one working chairlift, a half-mile long.
“This is a pretty big celebration
for a small lift,” said Jean-Paul Hua-
rd, a vice president at Poma, the
French company that installed it.
The event was a who’s who of the
Chechen elite. Magomed Kadyrov,
the eldest brother of Akhmad Kadyrov and the head of the region’s
weightlifting program, stood armin-arm with the head of the local
prosecutor’s office, which is pursuing Titiev’s prosecution. Both the
prosecutor and his bodyguard had
donned matching, brilliant white
snowsuits for the event, though neither intended to ski.
Asked about how Chechnya
could attract skiers despite its reputation for instability, the elder
Kadyrov said, “Don’t believe the
rumors.” He quoted Dante: “The
devil is not so black as he is painted.”
A press aide in Kadyrov’s administration said foreign journalists
were invited to Veduchi to show
that Chechnya, racked by two wars
and a long-running Islamist insurgency, is now safe and economically
viable. As recently as 2009, ItumKale, the mountainous region 50
miles south of Grozny, saw police
convoys mowed down by rebels.
Now, the aide said, he hoped journalists would write about the plans
for nine miles of ski trails, a luxury
hotel (set to open next month) and
chalets, free lessons for local children, and other boons from the
$210 million investment (according to PricewaterhouseCoopers).
“I agree that there is a political
concern,” Huard said, “but we have
to respect that in places around the
world, things don’t always happen
the way they do in America.”
Titiev was arrested this month
when police said they found
180 grams of marijuana in a plastic
bag in his car.
He doesn’t smoke or drink, his
sisters said, and largely kept his
work to himself to avoid worrying
family members.
He is “a very traditional Chechen
man,” one friend said, and as such
wouldn’t touch drugs.
Meanwhile, Memorial’s office in
Nazran, which it used as a base
during the wars in Chechnya, was
the target of an arson attack this
month. So was a car used by Titiev’s
lawyer in neighboring Dagestan.
Memorial employees have received
threatening text messages. And on
Wednesday, the day before his appeal, one of Titiev’s lawyers disappeared.
“I think it’s safe to say threats
were the reason for it,” said Pyotr
Zaikin, another lawyer for Titiev.

YEMEN
Deadly clashes deepen
split between allies
At least 10 people were killed
and more than 80 others
wounded as southern Yemeni
separatists fought government
troops Sunday in the southern
city of Aden, local medics said,
deepening a rift between forces
that had been on the same side.
The worst clashes yet between
southern separatists, who are
allied with the United Arab
Emirates, and forces loyal to the
Saudi-based government risk
crippling their once-united war
against the Iran-aligned Houthi
movement in Yemen’s north.
The fighting subsided by the
evening after Prime Minister
Ahmed bin Daghr ordered a
truce and instructed forces loyal
to the government to return to
their barracks, witnesses said.
Yemen has been torn apart by
three years of conflict between
the Saudi-backed government of
President Abed Rabbo Mansour
Hadi and the Houthi. The
factional fighting in the south
compounds the misery.
The fighting broke out after
the expiration of a deadline set
last week by separatists from the
Southern Transitional Council
for Hadi to dismiss the bin
Daghr government, accusing it of
corruption and mismanagement.
The government denies the
allegations.

China’s Communist Party seeks more influence over foreign firms
BY
S IMON D ENYER
beijing — American and European companies involved in joint
ventures with state-owned Chinese firms have been asked in
recent months to give internal
Communist Party cells an explicit
role in decision-making, executives and business groups say.
It is, they say, a worrying demand that threatens to put politics before profits, and the interests of the party above all other
considerations. It suggests that
foreign companies are no longer
exempt from President Xi Jinping’s overarching vision of complete control.
“The creeping intrusion by the
party apparatus into the boardrooms of foreign-invested enterprises has not yet manifested itself on a large scale, but things are
certainly going down that path,”
said James Zimmerman, a managing partner of the law firm
Sheppard, Mullin, Richter and
Hampton and former chairman of
the American Chamber of Commerce in China, who is instructing clients to “push back.”
The party’s demand would give
its cells a formal role in approving
management decisions, such as
investment plans or personnel
changes. And that is ringing
alarm bells.
At the same time, a campaign to
reinforce China’s draconian censorship of the Internet is beginning to affect foreign companies.
The twin efforts to keep tabs on
foreign companies are an expression of the Communist Party’s
constant paranoia about internal
stability. But they also represent a
shift in the balance of power here,
as China feels itself to be stronger
economically and Western businesses more dispensable.
Not every company is affected
by the changes. Larger enterprises have dedicated lines and special technology ensuring unfettered Internet access. But the
smaller ones do not have that
latitude.
By the same token, wholly
owned foreign ventures have not
faced the same pressure from internal party cells, while even companies involved in joint ventures
are pushing back against the new
demands.
But everyone is aware which
way the wind is blowing.
For decades, China was some-

vision of complete control over Chinese life is intruding into the boardrooms of foreign firms.
thing of an El Dorado for foreign
companies, its low wages luring
manufacturers and its vast consumer market and rapidly expanding middle class presenting
an unrivaled opportunity for
growth — even if it was always a
challenging place to operate.
These days, the mood has perceptibly changed: China is no longer
so keen to put out the welcome
mat, and foreign companies are
increasingly prone to complain of
unfair treatment.
Even after the wholesale transformation of the Chinese economy, the Communist Party has remained ever present in business.
Executives of state-owned firms
are party members, while under
Chinese law, any organization
that has three or more party members has to provide the “necessary
conditions” for cadres to establish
a party cell.
In practice, that rule has not, up
to now, been intrusive.
Party members might use company premises to meet, but they
would tend to do so after office
hours and might help organize
social events for employees. Executives described relations as
friendly and cooperative, with the
cells acting at times as if they were
adjuncts to existing human resources departments.
In the past year, that has begun
to change. Party members are expected to spend more time studying Xi Jinping Thought, the president’s political theory, in office
hours or in time-consuming offsite retreats. Although a formal
role for party cells in management
decisions is not required under
Chinese law, business executives
are worried about a trend toward
growing party interference.
“The long-term negative cost,
in my view, is the inefficiencies
and wastefulness that are likely to
result from political influence
that has no other purpose than to
drive the political machine,” Zimmerman said.
The European Chamber of
Commerce in China said in a
statement that introducing an
“additional layer of governance”
would have serious consequences
for the independent decisionmaking ability of joint-venture
companies and deter investment
from the continent.
China’s investment law stipu-
lates that foreign companies must
enter into joint ventures in many
sectors of the economy. Already,
many companies fear they are
being used simply to mine their
intellectual property, before they
are one day pushed aside by their
erstwhile partners.
For now, minority joint ventures are feeling the most heat
from party cells, but even 50-50
joint ventures have reported a
growing assertiveness, executives
and business groups say.
“That’s the danger European
investors see, a kind of salamislicing tactics, that starts with the
minority joint ventures, then
heads for the 50-50 joint ventures,
and eventually heading for the
100 percent foreign-owned companies,” said Joerg Wuttke, former
president of the European Chamber of Commerce.
“We really want people here to
understand: We don’t object to
party activities or people, but we
do want them to stay away from
operational questions,” Wuttke
said.
The controls on the Internet could follow a similar salamislicing tactic, whereby controls
are extended across smaller companies first.
China has embarked on a major
crackdown on VPNs, or virtual
private networks, technology that
is widely used to jump over the
country’s Great Firewall to gain
access to banned websites such as
Google, Facebook, Twitter and
many foreign news sites.
Although large companies use
dedicated lines and technology
known as MultiProtocol Label
Switching, which allows them to
bypass the firewall and encrypt
messages, that’s often too expensive for small and medium-size
enterprises that rely on commercial VPN and encryption software.
Some companies have had
ports closed down until they register with local telecommunications operators and report who is
accessing the Internet and why.
To regain full access to the
Internet, one American company
was asked to sign a “solemn commitment” — that it would obey the
Chinese Communist Party’s “seven bottom lines,” do nothing to
undermine the socialist system,
public order or social morality,
and wouldn’t use the Internet to
violate the interests of the state.
The agreement, made in
Shanghai last November, is typical of the hoops some foreign
companies are having to jump
through to maintain access to the
Web, and to continue doing business in a country where politics is
back on top of the agenda.
That has led many American
companies to take a “much more
cautious approach” to regulating
who within their organization
uses VPN software, said Jake
Parker, vice president of China
operations at the U.S.-China Business Council in Beijing.
A mergers and acquisitions
team might, for example, be
cleared to access websites such as
Reuters and the Financial Times
to make better business decisions,
but other staffers would be more
restricted, Parker said.
“That’s because there is an
emerging consensus among our
legal counsels that using VPNs for
noncommercial functions could
be construed as potentially violating China’s rules and regulations,”
he said. “There is a ‘more safe than
sorry’ approach.”
Parker said not everyone was
taking this approach, but there
has been a shift in that direction,
with “10, 15 or 20” companies
saying they had adopted similar
procedures.
An ongoing clampdown on
VPN use by private individuals
could also have a negative effect
on recruitment, executives say:
Parents will be reluctant to relocate to China if their children
can’t access their preferred social
media sites, many of which are
banned here.
A more fundamental anxiety is
that the Communist Party will
ultimately demand to see everything that flows in and out of the
country over the Internet, under
China’s new Cybersecurity Law,
which went into effect in June.
“How safe will [intellectual
property] and trade secrets be?
Will servers have to be stored
here? Will companies have to
hand over encryption codes to
Chinese authorities?” asked a
Beijing-based diplomat, who
spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.
“Could perhaps entire industry
sectors become off limits for foreigners for security reasons? It’s
not clear whether Chinese authorities are aware of possible collateral damage to businesses.”
To an extent, Beijing does not
care as much about foreign firms
as it used to, with a definite hubris
setting in after the Western financial crisis, experts say.
“Foreign companies used to be
seen as special here, as friends of
China,” said James McGregor, a
China-based author and businessman. “But that kind of flipped
during the Western financial crisis.”
Attitudes changed, he said. China began to believe its system of
state-directed capitalism was superior to the West’s, and that
foreign companies are simply
“here to serve us.”
One consequence: As President
Trump starts to take retaliatory
action against China over its trade
and business practices, Beijing is
putting off some of its most valuable lobbying partners.
“In the past, foreign business
has been an important ally for
China, but the country now appears to be alienating it at a time
when it most needs friends
abroad,” said Wuttke, the former
president of the European Chamber of Commerce.

Fitness-tracking app’s map could compromise safety of U.S. troops
SOLDIERS FROM A1
Most parts of the United
States and Europe, where millions of people use some type of
fitness tracker, show up on the
map as blazes of light because
there is so much activity.
In war zones and deserts in
countries such as Iraq and Syria,
the heat map becomes almost
entirely dark — except for scattered pinpricks of activity. Zooming in on those areas brings into
focus the locations and outlines
of known U.S. military bases, as
well as of other unknown and
potentially sensitive sites — presumably because American soldiers and other personnel are
using fitness trackers as they
move around.
Air Force Col. John Thomas, a
spokesman for U.S. Central Command, said Sunday that the U.S.
military is looking into the issue.
The military did not respond
to a question about what the
regulations are regarding use of
fitness-tracking apps. But the
Pentagon has encouraged the use
of Fitbits among military personnel and in 2013 distributed 2,500
of them as part of a pilot program to battle obesity.
The Global Heat Map was
posted online in November 2017,
but the information it contains
was publicized Saturday only
after a 20-year-old Australian
student stumbled across it.
Nathan Ruser, who is studying
international security and the
Middle East, found out about the
map from a mapping blog and
was inspired to look more closely, he said, after a throwaway
comment by his father, who
observed that the map offered a
snapshot of “where rich white
people are” in the world.
“I wondered, does it show U.S.
soldiers?” Ruser said, and he
immediately zoomed in on Syria.
“It sort of lit up like a Christmas
tree.”
He started tweeting about his
discovery, and the Internet also
lit up as data analysts, military
experts and former soldiers began scouring the map for evidence of activity in their areas of
interest.
Adam Rawnsley, a Daily Beast
journalist, noticed a lot of jogging activity on the beach near a
suspected CIA base in Mogadi-

shu, Somalia.
Another Twitter user said he
had located a Patriot missile
system site in Yemen.
Ben Taub, a journalist with the
New Yorker, homed in on the
location of U.S. Special Operations bases in the Sahel region of
Africa.
The site does not identify app
users and shows many locations
that may be connected to aid
agencies, U.N. facilities and the
military bases of other nations —
or any group whose personnel
are likely to use fitness trackers,
said Tobias Schneider, an international security analyst based
in Germany.
But it is not hard, he said, to
map the activity to known, or

activity in Beirut.
When lines such as

remote areas near
war zones, they may

roughly known, U.S. military
sites and then glean further
information.
The location of most of the
sites is public knowledge — such
as the vast Kandahar air base in
Afghanistan. The Pentagon has
publicly acknowledged that U.S.
Special Operations troops maintain a small outpost at Tanf in the
Syrian desert near the Iraqi border, which shows up on the map
as a neatly illuminated oblong,
probably because U.S. soldiers
wearing Fitbits or similar devices either jog around or patrol the
perimeter.
But the data also offers a mine
of information to anyone who
wants to attack or ambush U.S.
troops in or around the bases,
Schneider said, including patterns of activity inside the bases.
Many people wear their fitness
trackers all day to measure their
total step counts, and soldiers
appear to be no exception, meaning the maps reveal far more
than just their exercise habits.
Lines of activity extending out
of bases and back may indicate
patrol routes. The map of Afghanistan appears as a spider
web of lines connecting bases,
showing supply routes, as does
northeast Syria, where the United States maintains a network of
mostly unpublicized bases. Concentrations of light inside a base
may indicate where troops live,
eat or work, suggesting possible
targets for enemies.
At a site in northern Syria
near a dam, where analysts have
suspected the U.S. military is
building a base, the map shows a
small blob of activity accompanied by an intense line along the
nearby dam, suggesting that the
personnel at the site jog regularly along the dam, Schneider
said.
“This is a clear security
threat,” he said. “You can see a
pattern of life. You can see where
a person who lives on a compound runs down a street to
exercise. In one of the U.S. bases
at Tanf, you can see people
running round in circles.”
“Big OPSEC [operations security] and PERSEC [personal security] fail,” tweeted Nick Waters, a former British army officer who pinpointed the location
of his former base in Afghanistan
using the map. “Patrol routes,
isolated patrol bases, lots of stuff
that could be turned into actionable intelligence.”
By no means is all the activity
discovered related to U.S. forces,
Schneider said. The perimeter of
the main Russian base in Syria,
Hmeimim, is clearly visible — as
are several routes out of the base
that are presumably taken by
patrols, he said.
Other Russian bases also show
up, but Iranians either don’t use
fitness trackers or prudently
turn them off, he noted.
Strava apps and devices contain an option to turn off the data
transmission service, making it
more the responsibility of the
user to ensure that security isn’t
breached, Ruser said. “It seems
like a big oversight,” he said.
Strava issued a statement urging users to check the company’s
website to be sure they understand the privacy settings.
“Our global heatmap represents an aggregated and anonymized view of over a billion
activities uploaded to our platform,” the statement said. “It
excludes activities that have
been marked as private and userdefined privacy zones. We are
committed to helping people better understand our settings to
give them control over what they
share.”

How Murdoch’s idea to charge Facebook would work, or not
Treating platform like
a cable company would
have huge consequences
BY
B RIAN F UNG
As Facebook weathers a storm
over its handling of news and politics, one of the world’s biggest media titans argued Monday that the
social network could restore people’s faith by taking a lesson or two
from the cable industry.
Rupert Murdoch — the Fox
News founder and executive chairman of News Corp, which owns the
Wall Street Journal — said Facebook should support credible news
organizations by paying them for
their content. Modern tech companies have “popularized scurrilous
news sources” by spreading fake
news and misinformation, he argued.
Murdoch’s salvo comes days after Facebook said it would reduce
the amount of news it serves its
users and would weight media organizations based on how much
users say they trust them.
The change at Facebook is aimed
at restoring a focus on human
relationships, but it has also drawn
attention to the sometimes prickly
economic relationship between
publishers and the social media
company.
“If Facebook wants to recognize
‘trusted’ publishers, then it should
pay those publishers a carriage fee
similar to the model adopted by
cable companies,” Murdoch said.
“The publishers are obviously enhancing the value and integrity of
Facebook through their news and
content but are not being adequately rewarded for those services.”
Under Murdoch’s proposal,
Facebook would pay news outlets a
“minor” fee in exchange for displaying their articles on the site.
The social network declined to
comment.
Beyond publishers receiving
money for their content, it isn’t
clear how Murdoch envisions his
cable analogy playing out on the
Internet. News Corp didn’t immediately respond to a request for
comment. But some longtime cable
analysts said the unintended consequences could be enormous.
In today’s cable industry, consumers pay providers for a monthly
bundle of TV channels such as
ESPN or CNN. Some of that money
ends up in the local cable company’s pockets, but much of it goes
toward covering the cable company’s own programming costs.
ESPN in particular is among the
a month-long blackout of shows
like “Under the Dome.”
“Rupert Murdoch’s programming companies have derived BILLIONS from consumers for cable
subscriber fees,” Matthew Polka,
“If Facebook wants to recognize
‘trusted’ publishers, then it should
pay those publishers a carriage fee.”
Rupert Murdoch, founder and executive chairman of
News Corp, which owns the Wall Street Journal
costliest, charging cable companies more than $7 per subscriber
per month.
While the system has worked for
decades, it has resulted in rising
bills for consumers as content
firms seek to raise their prices year
after year. And when programmers
can’t agree with cable companies
on a price, it can lead to blackouts
that prevent TV fans from watching their favorite shows. Customers
of then-Time Warner Cable experienced precisely this problem in
2013, when a dispute between the
content distributor and CBS led to
president of the American Cable
Association, wrote in an email. “So
I guess it’s no wonder he would
look at revenue from Facebook as
another similar revenue stream.”
Charging Facebook for, say,
News Corp content could elicit one
of two responses from the social
media company, analysts said. Either Facebook could refuse to pay
and drop Murdoch’s content from
its platform — hurting a news outlet that depends far more on Facebook for traffic than the other way
around — or Facebook could seek
to pass along those content costs.
Either way, it probably would be
harmful to the Internet as an open
platform, said John Bergmayer, a
tech-policy lawyer at the consumer
advocacy group Public Knowledge.
“The idea that you have to pay a
site to link to it undermines the
entire purpose of the Web, and
calling linking ‘carriage’ is either
disingenuous or ignorant,” Bergmayer said. “If you don’t want to be
linked to, don’t put stuff online, or
put it behind a paywall.”
The Wall Street Journal was one
of the few news outlets to embrace
a paywall in the early days of online
news consumption, helping to insulate the publication from some of
the more painful shifts that affected its competitors in later years.
News Corp also took on Google last
year when the publisher stopped
allowing the tech company to give
search users free access to paywalled articles; the policy, known
as “first click free,” had discouraged
readers from buying subscriptions,
News Corp had argued. News Corp
nevertheless ended fiscal year 2016
with a 7 percent decline in news
revenue.
This is not the first time news
publishers have proposed charging
tech companies for access to their
content. In 2014, German publish-
ers demanded that Google pay for
listing small portions of their content in Google News search results.
Google declined, instead delisting
some publishers and causing referral traffic to plummet by doubledigit percentages.
A similar experiment in Spain
involved legislation that required
publishers to charge Google for
posting snippets of content on
Google News. It was unclear how
much Google was expected to pay,
but the debate was soon moot because the search giant announced
it was shutting down Google News
entirely in the country.
Critics said the Spanish law actually cost the news industry
roughly $10 million, rather than
helping it flourish.
The punishing results highlight
the immense influence that firms
such as Google and Facebook enjoy
over public discourse — and the
potential pitfalls of Murdoch’s proposal.
Still, the European Union has
weighed the idea of a continentwide version of the Spanish
rule, as well as a proposal that
would give publishers the power to
sue tech companies for using their
content without permission.

For contractors,
no end in sight to
funding problems
Executives say stopgaps
hurt economy, warn of
national security impact
BY
A ARON G REGG
For most in Washington, last
week’s short-lived government
shutdown seemed to be mostly an
annoyance, causing little more
disruption than a passing snowstorm. For federal contractors,
though, the stoppage brought
fresh worries that the industry’s
funding problems are likely to get
worse before they get better.
Congress remedied the shutdown not with a grand bargain
but with a three-week temporary
budget measure that carries last
year’s spending levels over to 2018
while lawmakers look for a more
permanent solution. Continuing
resolutions have been the law of
the land for most of the last decade, and many contractors say the
stopgaps hamper long-range
planning.
The latest partisan battles in
Congress have only added new
uncertainty, they say, putting a
damper on economic activity in
the Washington area.
David Berteau, president and
chief executive of the contractors’
trade group Professional Services
Council, told reporters in a conference call last week that he expects
at least one more continuing resolution to follow the current one
that is set to expire Feb. 8.
This means contractors will
have to wait at least another
month to find out what their biggest customer might spend in
2018. In some cases, new contract
awards on important programs
are being held up as federal agencies wait to see whether they will
have the resources to fund them.
“Companies are planning for a
very slow start to the year because
of this,” Berteau said. “How do you
plan for a [federal spending] number that not only do you not know
what it is, but you don’t even know
what direction it’s going in?”
Such delays threaten to ripple
beyond contractors as the region’s
biggest economic engine pumps
its breaks. About a third of the
region’s economy flows directly
from the federal government, the
Stephen S. Fuller Institute at
George Mason University reported last week, with the federal government procuring $78 billion in
goods and services in the D.C.
region last year.
In calls with investors, government contractors said the temporary measures are not only slowing the pace of business, but also
could hurt U.S. national security.
Northrop Grumman chief executive Wes Bush warned investors
in a Thursday conference call that
continuing resolutions could
cause the Falls Church-based
company to miss its financial targets for the year. He also said it
could hurt the military’s preparedness for future conflicts and
make it harder to update old systems.
“Industry stands ready to invest and innovate for next generation technologies and capabilities,” Bush said. “But our Department of Defense customers struggle to efficiently plan and execute
our national defense investment
strategy in the face of perpetual
continuing resolutions.”
Executives from the Waltham,
Mass.-based missile manufacturer Raytheon said Thursday the
continuing resolution is holding
up an expected contract award for
the Naval Strike Missile, a sealaunched missile that can be
aimed at targets over the horizon.
“It does take the [continuing
resolution] to be removed for us to
be awarded . . . a contract here,”
Raytheon chief executive Thomas
A. Kennedy said in a Thursday call

The USS Coronado launches an over-the-horizon missile engagement. Raytheon executives said the government’s continuing resolution is

with investors. “So we are very, I’d
say, motivated to see the [continuing resolution] finally resolved
here in the February time frame.”
The Naval Strike Missile promises to be an $8 billion opportunity over 10 years for Raytheon,
which developed the missile in
partnership with a Norwegian
aerospace firm called Kongsberg.
The missile is to replace the Navy’s
aging Harpoon missile, which has
been in service since 1977.
“It already exists and it’s ready
to enter production almost immediately upon award of the contract,” Kennedy said Thursday.
In a Wednesday morning call
with investors, General Dynamics
chief executive Phebe N. Novakovic said continuing resolutions
have contributed to a slowdown in
contract awards that subsequently hurt her company’s information technology business, much of
it based in Fairfax. Revenue in
that segment fell by 2.8 percent
from the previous year, though
operating margins improved.
“The combination of the [continuing resolution] and a new administration slowed the pace of
awards, particularly in our [federal civilian agencies] business,” Novakovic said.
Executives at L3 Technologies,
a New York-based firm with a
substantial Washington presence,
said sales of security scanners to
the Transportation and Security
Administration have been held up
because of the continuing resolution.
“The recent vote to end the
shutdown and fund the government for three weeks shows some
progress, but it is still temporary,”
L3 Technologies chief executive
Chris Kubasik said. “Like the rest
of the industry, we’re concerned
about how the continuing resolution impacts the U.S. military’s
ability to plan and execute its mission.”
Some lawmakers say funding
issues are playing a role in federal
hiring. The government faces a
growing backlog of people waiting for background checks to be
completed, a critical sign-off that
clears new hires for classified
work. That process sometimes
takes a year or more as clearances
are held up at the Office of Personnel Management and can delay
contractors’ ability to put people
to work even after a contract is
successfully awarded.
“There’s still a lot of uncertainty
in the government contracting
space, and we also hear about
challenges finding workers,” said
Sonya Ravindranath Waddell, a
researcher with the Richmond
Federal Reserve Bank.
For many contractors, the latest shutdown stirred memories of
an earlier 2013 budget break-
down, when Congress ultimately
approved a deep set of automatic
spending cuts as part of the “sequestration” process. The reductions hamstrung the local job
market for years. The defense
spending caps that emerged from
that budget deal are still in place
despite the Trump administration’s promises to boost military
funding.
A report released last week by
the think tank Center for Strategic
and International Studies detailed how that drawdown affected nearly every portion of the
defense contracting base. Companies working with military aircraft saw a certain “whipsaw effect,” in which funding dropped
quickly following years of steady
growth. Companies that service
and supply the Army’s land vehicles saw half of their contract obligations disappear.

With new work rules, GOP state lawmakers look to expand Medicaid
MEDICAID FROM A1
sider voting in favor of work requirements.
If successful, though, the efforts
could make hundreds of thousands of Americans newly eligible
for health coverage, while also
opening the door to Medicaid
changes that could kick some current beneficiaries out of the program and reduce its benefits to
recipients — broadening the program’s reach into red states but
with a decidedly conservative
bent.
“All of a sudden, we’re seeing
some flexibility that allows us to
do it our way, and that gives it a
much better chance,” said Wyoming state Sen. Ogden Driskill, a
Republican who helped defeat
Medicaid expansion in a close vote
in 2015. “Without the heavy hand
of the government forcing it down
our throats, many of us will take a
much deeper look at it.”
The Trump administration earlier this month said states could
apply to add work requirements to
their state Medicaid programs, a
first in the program’s history. Ten
states have already filed requests
for such waivers, and the Trump
administration has approved a
Kentucky plan to add work requirements and premiums to its
program.
The new Trump administration
rules may also shake up the balance of power in state-level struggles over Medicaid expansion.
Thirty-two states and the District
have expanded Medicaid since the
Affordable Care Act was enacted,
giving health care to approximately 13 million additional people.
(Maine voters approved a Medicaid expansion in a November ballot referendum, but it has not yet
taken effect.)
The other 17 states are overwhelmingly GOP-dominated. In
many, Democrats and some moderate Republicans repeatedly have
attempted expansions, hoping to
take advantage of federal funding
available to provide health insurance for low-income patients. But
they’ve seen their efforts thwarted
by conservative lawmakers and
governors, who argue that expansion would give health care to
“able-bodied” Americans and explode state budgets.
Now, moderate Republicans
hope to win over their conserva-

tive colleagues by packaging the
expansion with work requirements or other limits on who is
eligible for the program.
Their chances of success vary
widely depending on the state. In
Utah, a Republican lawmaker who
has opposed a more generous
Medicaid expansion is working
with a supportive governor and
leaders in the state’s House and
Senate on a version that would
include work requirements.
Under the new rules, “we think
that there may be a window of
opportunity to revisit the idea of
Medicaid expansion,” Utah Gov.
Gary R. Herbert (R) said in a statement to The Washington Post.
Utah has 46,000 residents who
could gain insurance under Medicaid expansion, according to the
Kaiser Family Foundation, although the plans being discussed
would probably cover a lower
number.
Utah state Rep. Robert M.
Spendlove (R) is spearheading a
plan to expand Medicaid that
would impose work requirements
on some residents. Spendlove has
wanted to craft this kind of package for years, but says he was told
by Obama administration officials
that the federal government
would stop an expansion proposal
that included work requirements.
To make the changes, states
would need a waiver from the
Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services. For the first time, that option is available.
“I’m not Captain Ahab; I didn’t
see the point in pursuing an expansion bill that wasn’t going to
get approved,” said Utah’s Spendlove, adding that he is working
with leadership in the state House
and Senate on his proposal. “The
importance of the Trump administration’s willingness to give
states flexibility to manage their
programs can’t be overstated.”
Kansas in 2017 came within
three votes of overriding outgoing
GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s veto
of a Medicaid expansion plan.
Moderate Republicans are hoping
work requirements would be
enough to get the proposal over
the finish line, but it’s unclear if
Brownback’s replacement, Republican Jeff Colyer, would support a deal. “This gives us a great
opportunity and something to run
with,” said Republican state Sen.
Barbara Bollier, who has tried
pushing conservatives in her state
to accept Medicaid expansion.
The Affordable Care Act sought
to extend Medicaid to every American living on less than 133 percent
of the federal poverty line, implementing a national standard to
replace a system in which each
state sets its own eligibility threshold. But the Supreme Court struck
down that portion of the law, allowing states to decline the extension.
As a result, millions of residents
in holdout states fall in the “Medicaid gap.” Their incomes are too

high to qualify for Medicaid, but
they make too little to meet the
minimum threshold for federal insurance subsidies to help them
buy private health insurance policies on Obamacare’s exchanges.
“It was a huge roadblock that
we did not have the ability to get a
waiver for work requirements,”
said Idaho state Sen. Marv Hagedorn (R), who said he will talk with
colleagues about potential expansion. “I’m very optimistic now that
the administration has done a 180
on that. We’ll see if we can make
something happen for people we
have in the gap population.”
In states where lawmakers have
repeatedly battled over Medicaid,
the proposals face an uphill climb.
In Virginia, where Democrats
picked up more than a dozen seats
in elections last fall and Republicans hold only a two-seat advantage in the state House and in the
Senate, a moderate Republican is
seeking a deal to pair expansion
with work requirements. But a
spokesman for new Virginia Gov.
Ralph Northam, a Democrat, said
the governor does not support
work requirements and that “very
initial” conversations about expansion are ongoing.
The odds may be even longer in
North Carolina, where moderates
are pushing to pair expansion
with work requirements but even
proponents are skeptical the legislature’s conservative bloc can be
won over. Roy Cooper, the state’s
Democratic governor, is “pleased
that there is some movement” on
Medicaid expansion, said spokeswoman Sadie Weiner, though she
added that Cooper has concerns
about work requirements.
Many Democrats share those
concerns. While they’ve long
sought expansion, the deals being
pushed would require them to accept rules they say will cost thousands of poor Americans their insurance. Republican-led states
ranging from Arizona to Indiana
are asking for a range of changes
aimed at reducing the generosity
of the program, including new fees
for emergency-room use, premium payments for the poor, and the
loss of coverage for those who miss
payments.
“Expanding does create the opportunity to cover more people,
but if it’s done with things like
work requirements, premiums
and other similar policies we
know reduce coverage, the gains
won’t be as large,” said MaryBeth
Musumeci, a Medicaid expert at
Kaiser.
In other states, expanding Medicaid remains a non-starter for
conservatives. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and South Dakota Gov.
Dennis Daugaard, both Republicans, said through spokesmen
that Medicaid expansion would
not be on the table in their states.
“There will be state legislators
who were previously skeptical of
Medicaid expansion, but who now
think they can get behind it,” said
Akash Chougule, director of
Americans for Prosperity, a rightleaning political advocacy group
affiliated with the Koch brothers.
“But for us, the fact remains that
expanding eligibility will massively increase spending costs. That
might be blunted a little bit by a
work requirement, but we will
continue to resist those calls to
expand.”

as #MeToo puts a chill on workplace interaction

dinners no way, HR told him.
Another investor said his colleagues have canceled their oneon-one meetings with female entrepreneurs. And some men have
taken to comparing their own
new approach to that of Vice
President Pence, who has said
that he does not dine alone with
any woman but his wife.
“My research over the past
couple of years showed that men
were hesitant to have one-on-one
meetings, go out to lunch or go on
business trips alone with a woman,” said Kim Elsesser, a psychologist at the University of California
at Los Angeles and author of “Sex
and the Office.” “Now it’s gotten
worse. We need to educate everyone in the workplace not only
about what not to do, but that
going out to lunch is important —
if you segregate by gender, that’s
discrimination.”
But the #MeToo movement will
fail if it focuses on “legalistic
solutions rather than practical
ones,” said Johnny C. Taylor Jr.,
president of the Society for Human Resource Management,
which has 285,000 members in
the HR field.
In recent weeks, Taylor said,
chief executives of “several major
companies have told us they are
now limiting travel between the
genders,” telling men, for example, that they may no longer take
female colleagues on business
trips or share rental cars with
women. “That’s legalistic and not
realistic,” Taylor said. “I told one
CEO, ‘How does that prevent
male-on-male relationships?’ It’s
really impractical. We need to
change the culture, not create
rules that people will ignore.”
Although most of the national
discussion about sexual misconduct has focused on a few highly
public industries — mainly Hollywood, media and politics — those
high-profile cases have sparked
conversations and change in factories, offices and wherever people spend their workdays.
As their fire engine heads back
to Station 501 after an intense
call, Lt. Eric Pena and his fellow
firefighters in Manchaca, Tex.,
just outside of Austin, debrief on
what they’ve just seen — and
trade coarse banter to ease the
stress.
“Oh man, you looked scared;
you looked like a little bitch,” one
of the guys will say. A rookie will
get teased as “just a virgin.” It’s
“all fun and games,” a way to cope
with the job’s daily traumas, Pena
said.
But with the news about sexual
harassment lately, Pena has been
thinking twice about who else is
present when the jokes fly.
Though all the firefighters are
men, Pena said female medics are
sometimes around.
“We have to make our own
judgment, ‘Hey, is it okay to talk
the way you talk to your crew
when there are other people
around and you’re not really sure
how their personality is?’ ” said
Pena, 40. The men on his shift
“understand that if there’s someone new in the room . . . hey, we
got to watch our mouth.”
At Michael Teixido’s otolaryngology practice in Wilmington,
Del., the annual holiday party has
long featured a joke video lampooning the doctors. Using animated templates from the JibJab
comedy website, they’d paste the
heads of their colleagues onto a
“Rocky Horror Picture Show”
scene or a Cossack dance line.
This year, his colleagues voted to
scrap one that was going to feature the physicians’ faces on
Chippendale dancer bodies. No
one had complained, but the
mood had changed.
“We’re definitely in a period of
heightened awareness,” said Teixido, who welcomes the new
thoughtfulness even as he laments missing a chance to let the
staff laugh at the bosses. “There’s
a real shift occurring in the
trenches of life.”
Change has come for both
women and men, as women feel
emboldened to speak out against
inappropriate behavior, and men
think twice about what’s acceptable at work.
In discussions across the country, Taylor, the HR executive, said
he found that “every man I’ve
spoken to is afraid. They really
don’t know what to do. I read a
list of things millennial women
don’t want to see anymore, like

vet and Bakers & Baristas bakeries in the District. “A lot of males
are definitely feeling more selfconscious, acting more guarded,”
she said. “It’s a shift. The critical
mass has been reached.”
That pivot has made work life
both easier and harder, Wilson
said: When a female employee
confided recently that she’d been
the victim of a sexual assault, “I
was grateful that she felt she
could talk about it now because of
everything that’s been going on.”
But Wilson has also seen people pull back from once-casual
and harmless behaviors. In many
workplaces, that comes down to
awkward decisions about, of all
things, hugs.
Wilson’s husband, who travels
a lot for work, used to hug colleagues he hadn’t seen in a while,
but now, she said, “there’s a cautiousness you have to have. You
don’t want your personality to be
construed the wrong way, so you
pull back on that hug. The pendulum has swung the opposite way,
maybe too much. We’re all going
to be walking on eggshells for a
while.”
Pena, the firefighter, has what
he calls “a hugging relationship”
with a female medic on his shift,
and he’s confident that nothing
has changed in their work-sibling
connection, so he’s still hugging.
But when a beloved colleague
walked into a recent office training session, Thomas-Villaronga,
the union official, stepped toward
the young man she had mentored
and stopped herself from embracing him as she normally would.
Instead, she stuck out her hand.
She wasn’t worried about his
reaction so much as the crowd of
people around them. A toofriendly greeting seemed to carry
more risk than it used to.
“I typically don’t think about
those things, but now you have to
step back,” she said. “What’s happening is good, but it is having a
chilling effect on camaraderie. I
think this is going to be the new
normal.”
As Sandy Sayre, a nurse in
Roanoke, discussed the sexual
misconduct allegations against
Matt Lauer, who was fired in
November as co-host of NBC’s
“Today,” with a surgeon colleague,
he told her he could no longer
give her the friendly hugs they’d
shared over a 10-year friendship.
“Don’t blow things too far out
of proportion,” replied Sayre, 50,
the senior director at the Carilion
Clinic for cardiovascular surgery.
“It’s very sad that we’ve gotten
to this level where he’s afraid to
give me a friendly hug because of
what other people have done,” she
said. “I feel really badly for the
people who’ve been victims of
people who have gone way over
the line. But now everybody’s
afraid to do anything. . . . We’ve
got to make sure that we don’t as a
society lose our ability to connect
with one another safely.”
Taylor, the HR executive, said
he encourages employers to “prepare women for the real world.

“We need to educate everyone in the

can you persuade guys in a bar to
buy your beer if we’ve so protected you from any rough language
in the corporate office?”
He said a happy medium between over-regulating work life
and protecting women from abusive behavior lies not in mandatory sexual harassment training
— “That doesn’t solve for anything,” he said — but in open
discussion of practical solutions.
“Non-fraternization policies are
unrealistic because people are
going to date,” Taylor said. His
organization prefers to focus on
disclosure: “It’s not that you can’t
date, you just both have to come
and report it. The organization
allows you to date and, in exchange, you agree to tell us if the
relationship goes south.”
Some companies are responding to the new focus on misconduct by tightening restrictions on
contacts between men and women, especially on business travel.
“To make sure no one has an
undue advantage, we’ve got to
start with professionalism,” said
Jenn Scheck, vice president for
human resources at Focus on the
Family, the Colorado-based
Christian ministry. “But it’s also
important to have strong structures to say that certain kinds of
relationships may not be appropriate.”
Focus on the Family has long
prohibited its 600 men and
women from sharing rental cars
or staying at the same hotel if a
man and a woman are the only
people from the company on that
trip. “Because we’re a Christian
organization and we hire likeminded people, they understand
we operate on biblical principles,”
Scheck said.
But fraternization rules and
mandatory training don’t seem to
improve the culture of workplaces, Elsesser said. “There’s really
no evidence that we’re doing anything that’s helping at all,” the
psychologist said.
She is seeing a backlash
against #MeToo in the form of a
“sex partition,” an invisible divider as men back away from inter-
acting with women, inhibiting
mentor relationships and clogging paths to advancement.
Elsesser remains hopeful that
the current debate can morph
into a national discussion about
consent: “We have to come up
with a way to teach people how to
know when it’s okay to move in
for the kiss.”
New efforts to even the playing
field include a move by female
venture capitalists in Silicon Valley to encourage female entrepreneurs by holding separate office
hours for them. A start-up incubator called YCombinator has
created an informal blacklist of
investors who are known harassers.
A veteran Broadway actor,
Christopher Gurr, who just concluded a leading role in “The Lion
King,” said he has been heartened
to hear his peers trying to learn
from the harassment cases that
have rocked the film side of their
industry.
“There’s a lot of joking now in
large groups: ‘Oh, can we still do
that? Can we still do this?’ ” Gurr
said. “But in small conversations,
it’s been more like, ‘Have I myself
been doing something that someone didn’t want me to?’ ”
Still, he said, gray areas pervade a business where intimacy is
vital to success.
“When you go into an audition,
you are going in to be attractive,
to be seductive, even,” Gurr said.
“It’s really messy and confusing in
our world.”
Stepping from one industry to
another can open workers’ eyes to
practices that seem to be tolerated in one place and rare in another. When Melissa Boigon
moved from a Manhattan finance
firm to a software start-up in New
Orleans, she shifted from a business in which sexual misconduct
had long been rampant to one
where people seem to get along
with a quiet professionalism.
Boigon, 26, said that while she
felt pressure to “dress and behave
a certain way in finance, now I
wear whatever I want to and
harassment is almost like a nonissue.” She attributed the difference
more to a generational divide
than to any new consciousness.
At her old job, older men commented on her body and she
stayed silent, even though she
was outraged. Her new office has
a very young workforce, which
she said makes it easier to speak
up if someone behaves inappropriately.
“I have been the woman in the
room who has taken it and not
said anything, just to move my
career forward,” she said, “and I
feel a lot of guilt about that. I
won’t be doing that anymore. I
like to think we’ve reached a
tipping point. Though I do wonder if it will never fully change
until there are just as many women as men in power.”

AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER
MMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS Enforcement,
the federal agency whose deportation agents
have been unshackled by the Trump administration, has intensified its efforts to such a degree
that cruelty now seems no impediment to its enforcement decisions, and common sense appears to play a
diminishing role.
Recent months have brought news of one senseless detention and deportation after another. From
all appearances, the agency seems to have embraced
the idea that it is just to sunder established families
and separate immigrant parents from their U.S.-born
children — even in cases involving garden-variety
technical violations of immigration rules.
Yes, the Obama administration also deported
some longtime residents who had committed no
serious offenses, but its deportation efforts were
focused on criminals. By contrast, detentions of
immigrants with no criminal records more than
doubled in the first year of President Trump’s

the deportation of a 39-year-old landscaper living in

10 and whose record was so unblemished that it
didn’t even feature a traffic violation? How else to
explain the Israeli undergraduate at the University of
California at San Diego, a “dreamer” studying legally
in the United States, who was detained upon trying
to cross back into the United States minutes after his
roommate made a wrong turn on the highway,
unintentionally driving into Mexico?
In its boilerplate communiques, the agency defends its actions by insisting that it prioritizes bona
fide threats to national security and public safety but
exempts no category of “removable alien” from
enforcement. Which raises a question: Have discretion and humanity been dropped from the attributes
that Americans can expect of their law enforcement
agencies?

Don’t close the door on lockers yet
The Jan. 25 front-page article “Schools and lockers no longer right combination for students,” about
high school students shrugging off the use of hallway
lockers, did not describe the experience of my two
daughters, who attend Edward R. Murrow, a large
public high school in Brooklyn. They each share
their lockers with a friend. Last year a student in the

A political prosecution casts
a shadow over the crown prince’s
modernization ambitions.
O
NE VIEW of Saudi Arabia was on display at
the just-completed World Economic Forum
in Davos, Switzerland, where the kingdom
sought to reassure investors and show off
traditional Saudi food, music and culture. The
finance minister, Mohammed al-Jadaan, declared,
“Saudi Arabia today is different. It’s not Saudi Arabia
five years ago.” He and other ministers extolled the
“Vision 2030” blueprint for modernization championed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the
young go-getter who has vowed to overturn the
kingdom’s hidebound ways.
But the old Saudi Arabia was still evident back at
home. On Thursday, two human rights activists,
Mohammed al-Otaibi and Abdullah al-Attawi, were
sentenced to 14 and seven years in prison, respectively, for briefly founding a human rights organization
about five years ago. No matter that they heeded the
government’s demands to close it; the prosecution
painted such things as publishing human rights
reports, disseminating information to the news
media and retweeting posts on Twitter as criminal
acts.
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince rightly sees the need
to satisfy a restless younger generation by cracking
down on endemic corruption, diversifying the economy away from oil and easing the tight grip of the
religious police. Women have deservedly been celebrating moves to permit them to drive and attend
sports events. But beneath it all, the crown prince
has been overseeing the same intolerant and brutal
approach to free expression and human rights that
was a trademark of his predecessors. This is a dark
underside that the crown prince apparently does not
want to change.
The prosecution of Mr. Otaibi and Mr. Attawi was
full of absurd twists. They and two others set up the
Union for Human Rights in April 2013 and issued
several statements on social media. They were
summoned for investigation less than a month later.
They promised to close the organization. Then they
applied for a formal license to open the nongovernmental organization but could not get one. Mr. Otai-
Not all Christians
bi and Mr. Attawi were warned again to stop their
activities in 2014, and they again pledged to do so.
Then, in 2016, the case was reopened. In March 2017,
Mr. Otaibi left the kingdom for Qatar, where he
managed to win asylum in Norway. As he prepared
to depart for Norway, he was apprehended at the
Doha airport and returned to Saudi authorities. The
punishment last week was imposed by the Specialized Criminal Court, the Saudi terrorism tribunal,
which has often been used to punish dissidents and
critics, and it was clearly designed to send a message
to any others who dare advocate human rights.
All who are intrigued by the crown prince’s
ambitions should take note of the stubborn persistence of old thinking when it comes to liberty and
rights. Raif Badawi, a blogger who envisioned a
more enlightened Saudi Arabia, was imprisoned
and flogged for his ideas, and remains incarcerated.
The twinkling promises for overseas investors at
Davos cannot mask the fact that Saudi Arabia is still
what it was five years ago — a dungeon for those who
dare speak out.
Ms. Bowser’s perplexing stance
The mayor should support public campaign financing, not push back against it.
A
S CHAIR in 2011 of the Committee on
Government Operations, Muriel E. Bowser, then Ward 4’s Democratic representative, muscled needed ethics reform legislation through the D.C. Council despite stiff resistance. The bill, which included creation of an
independent ethics board empowered to police the
conduct of public employees and officials, has
been credited with helping improve D.C. government and its handling of ethics matters. So it is
perplexing — and disappointing — that, as mayor,
Ms. Bowser seems indifferent, even hostile, to
efforts to further improve government ethics.
Ms. Bowser, The Post’s Peter Jamison recently
wrote, is the one elected official “conspicuously
absent” from a push to reduce the influence of
money in D.C. politics. She opposed a bill, passed
unanimously by the council, to provide for public
financing of local campaigns and has been
strangely mute about a long-discussed proposal
that would prohibit those seeking contracts to do
business with the city from making campaign
contributions. So strong are her objections to
public campaign financing that she has vowed not
to include money for it in her proposed budget.
Fortunately, that is not an impediment to its
implementation, because council members say
they will be able to add the needed funds.
We asked Ms. Bowser about her objections, and
she suggested campaign funding was a waste of
money better spent on other things. She asked:
“Do you want to give $3 million” to political
candidates? Actually, we do. The modest investment in a program matching small-donor contributions is worth the return of empowering voters,
widening the field of those able to run for office
and blunting the dominance of big-money donors
and their influence on government. It’s why we

Don’t squander this opportunity to increase pedestrian and cyclist safety
Biking and walking across the Arlington Memorial Bridge can be confusing and dangerous. The
planned $227 million repair of the aging bridge
presents a critical opportunity to also address safety
and access issues for people on foot and on bikes. For
a small fraction of the cost of the bridge project,
improvements to the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington Memorial traffic circles would improve safety
and reduce frustration.
Biking and walking trails offer several benefits:
Enabling commutes by foot and bike relieves traffic
congestion; bicycle tourism of the area’s businesses
and historical attractions boosts local economic
development; safe, accessible facilities encourage
exercise to improve health. A 2016 study identified
18 high-priority capital projects; 10 are directly connected to or within one mile of the Memorial Bridge.
support similar programs in Maryland’s Montgomery and Howard counties.
We have long argued that the District needs to
follow other jurisdictions in attacking the payto-play culture of government contracting by not
allowing the companies that do city business to
underwrite the political campaigns of officials
who control award of lucrative contracts.
Ms. Bowser demurred when we asked her stance
on this.
“She just does not remotely seem interested in
these issues,” said neighborhood activist Bryan
Weaver, “and personally, as someone who really
likes her, it’s a bad blind spot for her.” We, too, like
a lot of what Ms. Bowser has done for the city. But it
is time she opened her eyes on these critical issues
and delivered the kind of leadership she showed
when she steered ethics reform through the
council.
The economic boost from walking and biking
trails isn’t limited to local visits. The trail that runs
along the Mall, across the Arlington bridge and onto
the Mount Vernon Trail is part of the East Coast
Greenway, a developing 3,000-mile route stretching
from Florida to Maine along our nation’s most
populated corridor. The 18-mile Mount Vernon Trail
is one of the most widely used segments, with more
than 500,000 trips in 2016.
Undertaking a major Washington metropolitan
area capital project to keep the bridge from falling
into the Potomac River is an easy decision. Doing so
without also increasing the safety of people on foot
and on bike would be a squandered opportunity.

It seems that the very issue that endears President
Trump to evangelical Christian leaders proves ultimately to be a failure on their part to understand the
teachings of Jesus. In his Jan. 23 op-ed, “Evangelicals
have lost their gag reflex,” Michael Gerson quoted
Franklin Graham: “I appreciate the fact that the
president does have a concern for Christian values,
he does have a concern to protect Christians here at
home or around the world.”
Jesus did not hide the challenges his followers
would face, nor did he encourage them to seek the
protection of those who governed. He told them they
would face great persecution because of him, that in
this world they would have trouble. Their hope
would not be found, however, in the preferential
treatment of government but in the overcoming
nature of faith. It would appear these evangelical
Christian leaders have embraced Mr. Trump’s version of Christian values in an effort to preserve their
perceived status and influence.
Tragically, as Mr. Gerson cited, this misguided
perspective is a danger that has been seen before and
one that unfortunately still endures. These evangelical leaders may have lost their gag reflex amid
Mr. Trump’s promises, but many Christians have not.

Clear-cut sexual assault
The Jan. 25 news article “Michigan State president resigns amid Nassar scandal,” about the resignation of Michigan State University President Lou
Anna Simon over the Larry Nassar case, overall was
good. I take issue with the use of the word “groped”
to describe Larry Nassar’s acts of profound sexual
abuse. The lead prosecutor in the Nassar case said
Dr. Nassar’s behaviors included anal penetration
with his ungloved, unlubricated fingers. That’s not
groping; that is sexual assault.

Roots in white supremacy
Regarding the Jan. 22 front-page article “White
House’s immigration agitator at center of impasse
over ‘dreamers’ ”:
While I appreciated The Post’s focus on antiimmigrant zealot Stephen Miller’s role at the center
of the debate on Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals, I was disappointed to see the article quote
Mark Krikorian defending Mr. Miller without providing context about the extremism of Mr. Krikorian’s organization.
Mr. Krikorian’s group, the Center for Immigration
Studies, is a Southern Poverty Law Centerdesignated hate group that regularly distorts the
facts to demonize immigrant communities. Its
founder, John Tanton, is a eugenics proponent
whose anti-immigrant activism is explicitly rooted
in a desire to keep the United States a majority-white
country. The center has distributed the writings of
white nationalist authors, and Krikorian claimed in
the wake of the crushing earthquake in Haiti that the
country is “so screwed up because it wasn’t colonized long enough.”
It is critical that the ideology of figures such as
Mr. Krikorian or Mr. Miller not be normalized in the
urgent conversation about DACA and “dreamers.”
Anti-immigrant vitriol is rooted in an ugly history of
white supremacy; Congress should bear that in
mind and refuse to cave to their demands.

Are we
hostage to the
stock market?
Putting words
into action
in Syria
T
T
he stock market is going gangbusters — but whether this reflects the economy’s underlying
strength or runaway speculation
is a question that stumps many experts.
Hence, the need for this column: a
primer on the red-hot stock market. Will
it sustain the economy or ultimately kill
it?
The boom is undeniable. In 12 out of
the first 15 trading days of 2018, stocks
reached record highs, with an overall
gain of 6 percent, worth about $1.9 trillion, according to Wilshire Associates.
Since Donald Trump’s election on Nov. 8,
2016, stocks are up one-third, or $8.4 trillion.
Nor is there much quarrel that, at
present levels, stock valuations are
“stretched.” In layman’s language, this
means that stock prices are high relative
to company earnings (profits). Since
1936, the median price-earnings ratio for
the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index is
17; the present P/E is about 24, says
Howard Silverblatt of S&P Dow Jones
Indices.
Or consider another measure, the
CAPE index. This stands for “cyclically
adjusted price-earnings” ratio. Devised
by economists Robert Shiller of Yale and
John Campbell of Harvard, it provides a
longer view of market behavior. The
CAPE averages 10 years of P/Es and
corrects for inflation. This index, too, is
historically high at 34, which is roughly
double the long-term median of 16.
With evidence such as this, some
experts conclude that stocks are overvalued. Writing in the Wall Street Journal,
economist Burton Malkiel — author of
the classic “A Random Walk Down Wall
Street” — asserts that “all asset classes
appear overpriced.” Economist Mark
Zandi of Moody’s Analytics says stocks
could be overvalued by as much as
20 percent.
What these economists are saying is
that euphoric investors are pushing prices higher because they believe everyone
else is pushing prices higher. Herd mentality prevails. But sooner or later, this
self-deception becomes obvious. Then,
stock prices “correct” — a modest decline
of, say, 10 to 15 percent — or “crash,” a
much larger loss. Since the 1930s, there
have been 13 full-fledged bear markets
with declines exceeding 20 percent, according to Silverblatt’s figures. Their
drops averaged 40 percent.
The counterargument is that something (examples: tax cuts, regulatory
policies, new technologies, low interest
rates) has brightened the economic outlook, justifying higher stock prices. President Trump and his allies have taken this
view, arguing that the economy is already strong and that his policies will
make it stronger.
One skeptic is Shiller. Although conceding in a recent column for Project
Syndicate that high U.S. P/E ratios are a
“mystery,” he doesn’t credit “the Trump
effect.” For starters, he says, the CAPE
ratio has been high since 2013; Trump’s
policies can’t explain this. The market’s
upward march preceded his election.
Nor do high P/Es reflect exceptionally
rapid growth in profits, Shiller argues.
Just the opposite: Adjusted for inflation,
profits are only 6 percent higher than a
decade earlier.
The reality is that stock-market booms
and busts are often driven by financial
innovations that initially seem to make
investing safer, argues financial consultant Scott Nations in his absorbing new
book, “A History of the United States in
Five Crashes: Stock Market Meltdowns
that Defined a Nation (1907, 1929, 1987,
2008 and 2010).”
For example: In the early 2000s, the
“securitization” of mortgages — the
packaging of home loans in bond-like
securities — was supposed to reduce risk
by informing investors of varying loan
quality. Perversely, this lulled investors
into a false sense of confidence that
justified many dubious loans. When this
became clear, the economy and stocks
collapsed.
It’s an open question whether something similar is happening now. The
infatuation with bitcoin symbolizes
growing speculation, Nations says. Another source of potential instability
could be index products — exchangetraded funds (ETFs) or index mutual
funds — that allow investors to buy and
track a basket of stocks, such as the S&P
500.
These index products have grown rapidly in popularity, reflecting low fees and
a belief that most investors can’t “beat
the market,” so why try? In November
2017, there were 1,828 ETFs and index
funds worth a total of $3.3 trillion, up
from 923 products worth $1 trillion in
2010, reports the Investment Company
Institute (ICI), a trade group.
Although index products are investorfriendly, their effect on market trends is
not clear. The need to buy and sell huge
baskets of stocks may exaggerate swings
in both directions, increasing gains in
bull markets and losses in bear markets.
Still, ICI economist Sean Collins doubts
there’s much overall impact, noting that
— despite their growth — index products
represent only 13 percent of stock-market wealth.
What seems clearer is that the market
remains vulnerable to unexpected economic and political shocks. A significant
decline in stocks would undermine confidence and spending. Main Street is, to
some extent, hostage to Wall Street.

And Ige will not be helped by reports
last week that the still-anonymous “button pusher” who mistakenly sent out the
alert is refusing to cooperate in three
investigations of what happened.
Hawaii politics is distinctive in many
respects, and not only for its exceptional
ethnic pluralism. (There are not many
places where analysts discuss the influence of the politically potent Japanese
American community’s Okinawan subset. It is likely to come to the defense of
Ige, one of its own.) In no state is the
Democratic Party quite so dominant.
There is not one Republican in the state
Senate, and there are only five in the
51-member House of Representatives.
Bill Dorman, the news director of
Hawaii Public Radio, says the state’s
political system bears a certain resemblance to Japan’s. The long dominance of
the Japanese Liberal Democratic Party
means that nearly all substantive battles
are factional fights within the majority
party. That’s what happens here, too.
Ige’s informal faction in the state
legislature was called the Chess Club, a
group of policy wonks. Ige explained that
the bloc was named by the daughter of
one its members, who said their seriousness brought to mind the spirit of her
high school’s chess club.
Ige conveys a sense of serenity about
being the underdog in his reelection
fight, but he is not so serene about
Trump’s threats against North Korea.
“We are very concerned with some of the
statements made,” he said with characteristic restraint, adding: “We would
look forward to the day when we don’t
have to worry about sirens and warnings
and that everyone in the Pacific can live
in peace.”
They were the words of a politician
who has learned the high price extracted
by rumors of war.
he raging battle between two
U.S. allies in northern Syria is a
stark illustration that despite
some new rhetoric, the Trump
administration still lacks the will and
leverage needed to lead a solution to the
Syrian crisis, or even to properly defend
U.S. interests there.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson correctly identified the United States’ challenges in post-Islamic State Syria in a
speech two weeks ago in California,
including confronting the ongoing terrorist threat, Iranian expansion and
Bashar al-Assad’s brutal aggression. By
announcing that U.S. troops would remain in the country, Tillerson seemed to
acknowledge that on-the-ground influence is necessary for the United States to
achieve its objectives.
Inside the administration, officials
tell me that getting Syria policy that far
was a herculean effort. Many in President Trump’s orbit still advocate focusing solely on the Islamic State and
letting the rest of Syria’s chips fall where
they may. There’s still a contingent that
wants to cut and run.
While the Trump administration now
says publicly that the United States does
have long-term interests in Syria, it
hasn’t yet connected that to a real plan.
What’s clear is that the current U.S.
commitment in Syria is not enough.
“Those who know history know everything is a question of leverage,”
French author Bernard-Henri Lévy told
me.
As Turkey’s assault on Syrian Kurdish
forces near its border continues into its
second bloody week, the Trump administration has chosen to tacitly endorse
the campaign. Lévy sees that as a betrayal of the Kurds, who have fought the
Islamic State with U.S. support and
share the basic values and goals of the
United States.
In his view, both the Obama and
Trump administrations abdicated responsibility and leadership in Syria, creating a vacuum that authoritarian powers Turkey, Iran and Russia have rushed
to fill. Those powers saw the United
States abandon Iraqi Kurds when Iraqi
and Iranian militias attacked them last
year, and they calculate that there’s no
cost for attacking Syrian Kurds today.
“The real interest of America is to
support the Kurds because they are
faithful allies. [Turkish President Recep
Tayyip] Erdogan is not a faithful ally,”
Lévy said, calling the United States’
tolerance of Turkey’s assault a “scandal.”
Tillerson last week said the United
States is trying to persuade Turkey to
limit the scope of its attacks on the
Kurds in the Afrin area of Syria. Behind
the scenes, U.S. officials are scrambling
to prevent Turkish forces from attacking
nearby Manbij, where U.S. forces sit, as
Erdogan has threatened to do.
Others argue the United States can
and should respect Turkish security
concerns but need not throw the Kurds
under the bus in the process. Yet even if
the Trump team can strike that balance,
it wouldn’t address the fundamental
flaw in its Syria strategy — a lack of
sufficient leverage on the ground to
realize Tillerson’s vision.
“We have committed ourselves to a
very tactical, myopic fight in Syria from
the very beginning, which has worsened
these broader strategic issues, including
the relationship with Turkey, the Syrian
civil war and confronting Iran,” said
Wa’el Alzayat, a former State Department official who now runs a nonprofit
organization called Emgage.
The Trump administration is still
repeating many of President Barack
Obama’s key mistakes. The United
States is depending on Russia to exert
pressure on the Assad regime, which
Moscow has proven unwilling or unable
to do. The Trump administration touts a
U.N.-sponsored peace process as the
political way forward, but it has been a
perennial failure. The effort to confront
Iran in Syria is not properly resourced.
There’s no real pressure on Assad to halt
his mass atrocities.
What are the alternatives? Short of a
large increase in U.S. troops, which
nobody is advocating, there are several
ways the United States can strengthen
its hand in Syria. First, the United States
must not abandon the Kurds it has
trained. That could prompt them to
strike deals with the Assad regime or
Russia, with horrendous consequences.
Second, the United States must make
a play for influence with Arab groups
that still occupy and defend Sunnipopulated areas. This means resuming
support for moderate rebels, especially
in Idlib province, where the Assad regime and its partners are advancing. It
also means adding more Arabs to the
Syrian Democratic Forces and supporting local governance in areas not under
Assad’s control.
Third, the Trump administration
should raise the pressure on Assad,
Russia and Iran, including through
sanctions, the credible threat of U.S.
force and whatever else might persuade
them to honor de-escalation agreements
they are violating and negotiate in good
faith. As of now, they have no intention
to do so.
A year into Trump’s presidency, his
administration is saying the United
States has a long-term interest in Syria.
The next step is to match those words
with action.

Immigration or stagnation
M
essage to Republicans: You
can be pro-growth. You can
be anti-immigration. But,
honestly, you can’t be both.
Now, within the immigration debate, there are a lot of questions with
no obvious right answers.
What’s the right balance of immigrants admitted for their skills and
those allowed in because they have
relatives here?
How much effort should be devoted to tracking down the undocumented, and how much to punishing
companies that hire them?
What should we do about the
millions of immigrants who came
here illegally a decade or more ago
and have become established members of their communities?
And — what is the right number of
legal immigrants every year from now
on?
Big, complicated questions —
which is why Congress shouldn’t try
to solve them all between now and
Feb. 8, its self-imposed deadline for
resolving the issue of the “dreamers.”
In the few days that remain, the best
it could do would be to, well, resolve
the issue of the dreamers — the
undocumented immigrants who were
brought here as young children
through no fault of their own, who
obey the law and who go to school or
work or serve in the military.
They are American in all but legal
status. Give them a path to citizenship, as President Trump has proposed. Give Trump the money for his
wall (until he gets that check from
Mexico). Punt on the big, complicated
questions, something Congress certainly knows how to do. Everyone
declares victory, and the government
doesn’t shut down.
Of course, that would leave us still
facing the big questions. Ideally, Congress would schedule a serious debate
on them for the spring. Ideally, it
would be conducted in a constructive
spirit — acknowledging, for example,
that reasonable people can disagree
on skills vs. family.
But ideally, also, it would also be
conducted with an understanding that
those who favor a drastic, absolute
drop in the level of immigration, as
many Republicans do, would be making a choice about America’s future.
They would be turning us into
Japan.
Now, to be clear, Japan is a wondrous nation, with an ancient, complex culture, welcoming people, innovative industry — a great deal to teach
the world.
But Japan also is a country that
admits few immigrants — and, as a
result, it is an aging, shrinking nation.
By 2030, more than half the country
will be over age 50. By 2050 there will
be more than three times as many old
people (65 and over) as children
(14 and under). Already, deaths substantially outnumber births. Its population of 127 million is forecast to
shrink by a third over the next
half-century.
Japan is a pioneer and an extreme
version of where much of the First
World is headed as longevity increases and fertility declines. The likely
consequences are slower economic
growth, reduced innovation, labor
shortages and huge pressure on pensions. If you think our entitlement
politics are fraught, think about this:
In Japan in 2050, the old-age dependency ratio — the number of people
65 and over as a percentage of the
number who are 15 to 64 — is
projected to be 71.2 percent.
The comparable figure for the
United States is 36.4 percent, up from
25.7 percent in 2020. Still high, but if
it proves manageable, we will have
immigration to thank. America still
attracts dynamic, hard-working people from around the world, and they
and their offspring help keep our
population and our economy growing, as recent Pew Research Center
and International Monetary Fund
papers explain.
The wave of immigration over the
past half-century also has changed
the face of the nation, reducing the
share of the white population from
what it would have been and increasing the share of Asians and Hispanics.
It’s not surprising that some people
find this disorienting.
But as so often with such debates,
perceptions lag reality. Nearly half
(48 percent) of immigrants these days
have college degrees, as a fact sheet
from the Migration Policy Institute
last year showed. A quarter of technology company start-ups between
2008 and 2012 included at least one
foreign-born founder. As incomes
and education levels rise around the
world, in other words, the skills mix
of U.S. immigration is already changing, without any changes in our laws.
Here’s the bottom line: I think we
should remain open to immigrants
because it’s part of who we are as a
nation, because every generation of
newcomers — even, or maybe especially, the ones who come with nothing but moxie and a tolerance for risk
— has enriched and improved us.
But you don’t have to buy into any
of that Statue of Liberty stuff to favor
immigration, because naked selfinterest leads to the very same conclusion. A vote to choke off immigration
is a vote for stagnation and decline.

E.J. DIONNE JR.
The politics of war jitters
G
honolulu
ov. David Ige, who speaks in the
quiet, measured way of his engineering profession, likes to tout
everything Hawaii is doing to
battle climate change.
He lights up about the state’s Early
College initiative, which allows high
school students to take enough collegelevel courses to earn associate degrees
along with their secondary school diplomas. For good measure, he proudly
stresses the state’s tolerance and openness (“Everybody’s a minority in Hawaii”) and argues that the rest of the
country can draw lessons from its more
than four decades of nearly universal
health care.
But for the moment, the main thing,
maybe the only thing, that people back
on the mainland know about him is that
he’s the governor who forgot his Twitter
password on the day his state was shaken
by a false warning of an imminent
missile attack. Ige learned two minutes
after the announcement that the Jan. 13
alert was mistaken, but it took him
another 15 petrifying minutes to tweet
out: “There is NO missile threat.”
Perhaps because the Trump presidency has made lies and evasions so commonplace, there is something refreshing
about Ige’s candid response to the fiasco.
During an interview in his office at the
state capitol here last week, he first
performed yet another mea culpa for the
entire mess: “The error was truly an
unacceptable occurrence.” Then he explained that he, like many officials, does
not pay much attention to his Twitter
feed, leaving it to his staff — another
contrast with President Trump. Ige acknowledges not getting up to speed
quickly enough.
“Obviously, I don’t do my own Twitter,”
he said, “and it came up, and the
question was asked, ‘Why did it take X
minutes before we had posted on Twit-

ter?’ and that’s the fact.”
Politicians face many challenges, but
Ige may be alone in having to answer to a
constituency in which every single member confronted the possibility of sudden
death. “Who else has had the experience
of thinking, ‘I have 10 minutes to live’?”
wondered Brett Oppegaard, a journalism
professor at the University of Hawaii.
The timing of the episode was particularly inopportune for Ige, a first-term
Democrat who faces a tough challenge in
this summer’s primary from respected
U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa. In endorsing Hanabusa last week, Tulsi Gabbard,
Hawaii’s other member of Congress,
praised Hanabusa as “a strong, decisive,
dynamic leader” and was not shy about
invoking the false alarm.
“The failure of leadership that we saw
throughout that entire incident further
affirmed what I know,” Gabbard said.
Hanabusa herself doesn’t even have to
bring up the subject. “The question is
how we restore confidence,” she told me.
“Bashing on the governor for the 38 minutes is not going to solve it,” she said,
referring to the time it took for the alarm

We manufacture prescription opioids.
How could we not help fight the
prescription and illicit opioid abuse crisis?
Two doctors founded a company in 1892 now known as Purdue Pharma.
Continuing the strong heritage of a research-driven, science-based
company, another doctor is currently at the helm as CEO. We’re the
pharmaceutical company that manufactures OxyContin®. Patients’ needs
and safety have guided our steps. It’s what led us to research and develop
medications to help patients. Today, it’s what has spurred us to redouble
our efforts in the fight against the prescription and illicit opioid abuse
crisis. It’s why we’re taking action.
We support recommendations in The President’s Commission on
Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis and the FDA’s Opioid
Action Plan. There are too many prescription opioid pills in people’s
medicine cabinets. We support initiatives to limit the length of first opioid
prescriptions. Reducing the number of excess tablets won’t end the
epidemic, but we believe it will help rein in the problem. We believe doctors
should check their state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
databases before writing an opioid prescription, to guard against doctorshopping by those trying to game the system. Information sharing between
state databases must improve.
Our industry and our company have and will continue to take meaningful
action to reduce opioid abuse. We focused our talented research scientists
and applied our innovative thinking to making opioids with abuse-deterrent
properties, making them harder to crush and, therefore, harder to be
abused by snorting or injection. With this investment, we pioneered
the pharmaceutical industry’s movement toward developing opioids
with abuse-deterrent properties when we were the first to receive FDA
approval.1 Developing new formulations is risky and there are never any
guarantees, but we did it anyway. Our company also took the initiative
to distribute the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids to thousands of
prescribers and pharmacists shortly after it was released.
As we continue to fight the prescription opioid and illicit substance abuse
crisis, we are applying our resources and our best scientific minds to
discover and develop new, non-opioid pain medicines for patients.
No one solution will end the crisis, but multiple, overlapping efforts will.
We want everyone engaged to know you have a partner in Purdue Pharma.
This is our fight, too.

Opioids with abuse-deterrent properties are not abuse-proof and don’t prevent addiction,
but they are part of a multifaceted approach to addressing the prescription opioid abuse crisis.

kiwi fruit, most seeds.
So when the 9-year-old at Lovettsville
Elementary School in Northern Virginia

to allergic reactions.
The boy’s mother, Anastasia Kim, said
that had it not been for McCall, “I could

$28,000. And not nearly enough, in her

“I don’t think people realize how
important our job is and, I hate to sound
dramatic, but if a student does have
anaphylaxis and does die, where’s the
responsibility? It’s with us,” said McCall,
who has worked at Lovettsville for 14
years, tending to skinned knees and sour
stomachs, and managing students’ inhalers and their allergies.
“It’s just really degrading to feel like
you’re not appreciated,” she said.
In Loudoun County and other wealthy
suburbs, some of those employees, including McCall, have to work second or third
jobs. And even then, they can’t afford to
live in the communities they serve because of high housing costs.
Loudoun schools are moving to address lagging pay, with increases proposed for next year. But employees and

The distress call came across
Clifton Montgomery’s emergency
radio. A patient wearing a hospital gown, barefoot and disoriented, had walked out of MedStar
Washington Hospital Center and
was trying to leave the hospital
grounds.
Montgomery, who was then a
special police officer with the
hospital, said that as he responded, he saw the patient, 74-year-old
James E. McBride, punching another guard, Charles Brown.
“I had to act fast. He was
violent and kept throwing punches,” Montgomery recently told a
jury. “There was no time to assess
the situation. He was already violent and he was a threat.”
What happened next that September day in 2015 is at the center
of a criminal trial that has been
unfolding in D.C. Superior Court.
D.C. prosecutors allege that
Montgomery and Brown used excessive force to restrain McBride,
violently tackling him to the
ground and ultimately causing a
fatal neck injury. The guards each
face a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
Defense attorneys say the two
guards acted appropriately to
handle an agitated patient. They

Does the big boss really matter in big-city school districts? Not if they’re boring.
School district
superintendents
are often nice
people, but
boring. They
rarely have much
Jay
effect on what
Mathews
happens in
classrooms,
where the most interesting and
productive changes occur.
But because the nation’s two
largest districts, New York and
Los Angeles, are looking for new
superintendents, I forced myself
to read a trenchant new guide
for superintendent success by
two scholars who think the man
or woman at the top is
important.
Can Paul Hill and Ashley
Jochim of the University of
Washington save NYC and LA
from fractious politics and
stopgap solutions? Probably not.
But they offer enough shrewd
insights to help us decide
whether new superintendents in
those cities and your city have
any hope of progress.
Their report for the Center on
Reinventing Public Education is
titled “Unlocking Potential: How
Political Skill Can Maximize
Superintendent Effectiveness.”
The authors scold
superintendents who insist that
they are educators rather than
politicians. I agree that such
people should sign up for
classroom jobs and let
dealmakers run their districts.
Time is precious, Hill and
Jochim say. Stop using so much
of it on such favorite
superintendent events as
visiting schools or holding big
community meetings. Figure out
what you want early and
convince powerful folk — such
as school board chairs, business
executives and union leaders —
that your plan will be good for
them, too. This means avoiding
a beloved superintendent
pastime: making off-the-record
fun of board members. “The
resolution of any important
question depends on someone
assembling a strong enough
coalition to prevail over the long
term,” the authors say.
That is what some
superintendents I have known
tried to do. The least boring of
them, D.C. Chancellor Michelle
Rhee, made some initial
progress when she arrived in
2007 by employing the backing
of several rich foundations and
of the mayor who appointed her.
She streamlined an inbred
central office, appointed
promising principals,
abandoned the district’s enmity
toward charter schools and
imposed a teacher rating system.
But she ignored one of Hill
and Jochim’s maxims:
“Superintendents who want to
make real changes must treat
school staff as professionals who
respond better to fair bargains
than coercion.” Being not boring
often means making
unnecessary enemies. Consider
Rhee’s freewheeling approach to
the media. She complained
about specific Washington Post
writers to their editors — a big
no-no in newsrooms — and,
most spectacularly, let a TV
news crew record her firing a
principal.
But she also used a cynical
tactic Hill and Jochim endorse:
Let everyone know the district is
a disaster. The threat of a
takeover from the state or the
mayor helps, but in Rhee’s case,
she was the takeover, since the
power to pick a chancellor — her
— had moved from the school
board to the mayor.
So she emphasized the
negative when she arrived. One
expert in education politics told
Hill and Jochim he admired this
technique; he praised William
Bennett when he was U.S.
education secretary under
President Ronald Reagan for
saying Chicago had the worst
schools in the country. “That
brought the whole city together
and broke a lot of logjams,” the
expert said.
Rhee held back promised pay
raises to teachers until other
changes, such as the new teacher
rating system, were in place. Hill
and Jochim approve: “Once a
group (a union, for example) has
a benefit in hand, they have no
reason to compensate the
superintendent retroactively.”
Smart superintendents should
groom potential successors, the
authors say. Rhee brought in
Kaya Henderson as her deputy.
Henderson had Rhee’s passion
for reform but was better at
treating others as professionals.
Rhee left in 2010 when her
protector, the mayor, was voted
out of office. The gentler
Henderson took over and lasted
six years — a long run for an
urban district.
So it is Henderson, not Rhee,
being talked about as the
possible new superintendent in
New York or Los Angeles. As the
authors say, whoever takes over
those schools will need new
coalitions and the patience to
pursue them with respect. I
advise those new district leaders
also to ignore writers such as me
who are looking for excitement,
because a superintendent’s path
to lasting success can often seem
dull.

continually review and adjust
pay for these valuable employees.”
An online questionnaire circulated to support staff by the
union returned stories of workers beset by money woes.
From a cafeteria monitor: “Being a monitor and bus driver you
live very poor where you can
barely make it.”
From a job coach: “I bring
home $568 every two weeks.
That is poverty level.”
From a behavior assistant,
who wrote that his wife is a
fourth-grade teacher: “We cannot afford to live in Loudoun
County and we live paycheck to
paycheck. We had $0.56 in our
account for 2 days before payday.
We have 2 kids, live 45 miles
away, and still cannot live comfortably.”
Loudoun’s
superintendent,
Eric Williams, is proposing an
average 2.4 percent raise for
support staff for the next school
year with the possibility of even
more.
SALWAN GEORGES/THE WASHINGTON POST
Karen McCall, at home in Loudoun County, Va., works in the health clinic at Lovettsville Elementary
School. “I don’t think people realize how important our job is,” she says.
Some support workers were
already given pay adjustments
this year. For bus drivers and
technology assistants, those adjustments resulted in an average
hourly boost of 6.8 and 14 percent, respectively, according to
the district.
The starting pay for a bus
driver in Loudoun, about
$28,284 a year, is now among the
highest in the region, according
to the union. The starting pay for
a technology assistant rose to
$23,151, but Palanzi noted that
the district also added responsibilities to the role.
He said the increases aren’t
enough. Rising health insurance
costs mean that more money will
probably be deducted from paychecks. And a pay raise of a few
percentage points doesn’t add up
to much for workers with low
hourly wages, he said.
“They’re not making up any
ground at all,” Palanzi said.
When Karen Tyrrell, a technology assistant at Belmont Ridge
Middle School, started in Loudoun schools more than a dozen
years ago, support positions
tended to be filled by people
looking for a second job that
would help pay for summer vacations and other extras.
Over time, the paychecks became indispensable. “With the
cost of living in Loudoun County
and just the cost of living in
general . . . it’s become a necessary and expected income,” Tyrrell said.
Employees in school districts
across the region have encountered similar struggles. Riley
O’Casey, president of the Prince
William Education Association,
said workers there often live
with roommates or take second
or third jobs.

Colleges better hope those kids

decade from now when they are
applying to school, the outlook
for enrollment in higher
education is dire. The number of
high school graduates nationwide
is projected to remain relatively
flat for the next several years
before rising a bit in the middle of
the next decade. But between
2026 and 2031 — a period of
graduating classes that includes

school graduates are expected to
drop by 9 percent.
Beyond the overall numbers

increase. In other words, the
decade ahead will be tumultuous
for college enrollment.
We’re beginning to see the
effect of demographic changes in
higher education. A survey
released last week by the
Chronicle of Higher Education
found that 52 percent of private
colleges and 44 percent of public
colleges didn’t meet their
enrollment goals this past fall.
“We’re an expensive product,”
Kathryn Coffman, vice president
and dean of admissions and
financial aid at Franklin College
in Indiana, told the Chronicle.
“Now more than ever, outcomes
are critical, and people want to
know that the investment they’re
making is going to result in
something.”
For the past year, I’ve been
studying projections regarding
high school graduates
nationwide. What I found is the
country is heading into a lengthy
period of significant differences
in growth by region. The South
and to a certain extent the West
will account for nearly all the

to the highest density of colleges
in the United States, with a
history of student migration
between states — show a
continued and steady decline.
The South, which accounted
for one-third of the nation’s high
school graduates around the turn
of this century, will be responsible
for nearly half at the peak of its
growth in 2025. The West will
account for 30 percent of the
nation’s graduates by the
midpoint of the 2020s.
As a result, the question I’ve
been wrestling with is whether
the next generation of college
students will make the same
choices as their predecessors and
travel far distances to attend
college. Evidence based on
demographics and traditional
student migration suggests they
won’t. Even as more schools
expand their search areas for
admissions — Northeast
universities, for instance, setting
up shop in California — many
indications suggest the market
for students willing to get on a
plane or drive several hours is not
growing at the same rate.
The raw numbers are sobering.
But then a new book landed on
my desk a few weeks ago that put
MEMBER EXCLUSIVES
To Be: Specially Priced Tickets to Hamlet at
Shakespeare Theatre Company
In the wake of his father’s death, Hamlet returns home from university to find his
personal and political world changed as he never imagined it could – his mother

the figures in a new, disturbing,
light. In “Demographics and the
Demand for Higher Education,”
Nathan D. Grawe, an economics
professor at Carleton College in
Minnesota, explores the decline
in greater detail.
As he notes early in the book,
just because someone graduates
from high school doesn’t mean
she will go to college. The past
two decades in higher education
have been about expansion as the
percentage of high school
graduates going to college has
increased even when high school
enrollments plateaued. Highereducation leaders have generally
assumed that the college-going
rate in the United States, just shy
of 70 percent, would continue to
rise. Few have considered it could
move in the opposite direction.
Grawe created something he
calls the “Higher Education
Demand Index.” It attempts to
adapt population trends into
college-attendance forecasts,
using federal education data to
estimate the probability that
populations from different cities
and states will go to college.
“Unless something unexpected
intervenes, the confluence of
current demographic changes
“We need to make sure that
our employees are respected,
and part of that includes a salary
that lets them live,” O’Casey said.
In Arlington County, a 2017
compensation study found that
pay for some support staff significantly lagged behind that in
other school systems. Increases
are planned over three years for
certain positions, including custodians and bus drivers, said
Kristi Murphy, the district’s assistant superintendent of human
resources.
The Arlington Education Association, which represents
school workers, has long fought
for higher wages for support
staff, said President Ingrid Gant,
a former middle school resource
assistant, a role in which she
co-taught classes. Gant moved to
Woodbridge 15 years ago after
finding that she couldn’t afford
to buy a house or rent an apartment in Arlington.
Gant said she knows few educators who teach or work in
Arlington schools and live in the
county — for the same reasons
she can’t. Many juggle multiple
jobs, she said, and some commute from Stafford County or
Fredericksburg.
“I’m a born-and-raised Arlingtonian,” she said. “Never thought
I’d be a commuter, but I could
never afford to live in Arlington
based on what I was making.”
By dim lamplight inside the
brick rambler she and her husband occupy in Lovettsville, McCall, the health clinic specialist,
fiddled on a laptop as she prepared for her shift as a hospice
nurse — her second job.
It’s past 3 p.m. on a Wednesday and, after arriving home
from her job at the elementary
school less than half an hour
earlier, she has changed out of a
colorful scrub top festooned with
hearts and flowers and into a
navy blue version.
McCall’s husband had back
surgery last year, she said, keeping him from taking on construction jobs and further straining
the family budget. They were
considering selling their home
when the job as a hospice nurse
came along in June.
It has been a lifeline. McCall
clocks three five-hour shifts on
weekdays and a pair of 12-hour
shifts on the weekend. The additional money isn’t enough to
maintain a rainy-day fund, but it
covers most of the $1,350 monthly mortgage and the electricity,
water, car insurance, cable and
other bills.
“I’m tired, you know, but I love
what I do,” she said. “I’m a nurse.
I love taking care of people.”
For the past seven years, she
has worked 50 to 70 hours a
week. She’s up to 79 hours now.
She counts herself fortunate
because she has a nursing license
that helps her find a second job.
“I feel grateful I have the ability
to do it,” she said.
Wednesday night’s shift started as it normally does. McCall
punched the address of her first
visit, 47 minutes away in Reston,
into her iPhone. She reviewed
patient information, jotting
notes before closing her laptop
and exiting through the kitchen
door.
In the driveway, she slid into
her Buick, bringing to life the
engine as the night began.
foretells an unprecedented
reduction in postsecondary
demand about a decade ahead,”
Grawe writes.
The overall number of high
school graduates, he argues, is
not sufficient in determining the
future for colleges. For the most
part, higher education is a local
market. Most students, especially
those with average academic
records, go to schools close to
home that have a reputation for
attracting close-by applicants. Far
fewer potential students means
these regional schools are likely
to struggle to fill seats.
According to Grawe’s demand
index, several historically large
markets of students, such as New
York, Philadelphia and Boston,
will post “dramatic losses of
15 percent or more” in collegegoing students. He estimates that
four-year colleges nationwide in
just one four-year period at the
end of the 2020s stand to lose
almost 280,000 students.
Not all schools will be affected
equally, Grawe argues. Elite
colleges — those ranked in the top
50 in U.S. News & World Report
nationally — will have about half
the drop-off in student demand as
those outside the top 100 because
brand names attract students
willing to travel far distances.
That presents interesting
opportunities for those schools
ranked between 51 and 100,
Grawe writes, because they could
benefit from a spillover of
students who can’t get in to top
50 schools. Historically, the top
schools haven’t increased spots to
accommodate demand.
The consequences of what is
about to happen will have an
effect on schools and applicants.
For a few schools in certain
pockets of the country, it certainly
means closure. While we’re
unlikely to see massive numbers
of colleges going out of business
— just look at the turmoil that
surrounded the unsuccessful
campaign to close Sweet Briar
College in 2015 — many colleges
will need to merge or form deeper
partnerships with schools in
equally tough situations.
For students, the changes in
demand will mean even more
competition to get them to enroll.
If schools can afford it, students
with solid academic records and
the means to pay something
toward tuition are likely to get
showered with financial
incentives. So for parents such as
me, lucky enough to have kids
born in the middle of the
demographic trough that arrives
at the end of the next decade,
perhaps saving for higher
education won’t be so worrisome
as it sometimes seems.

A question from one John Kelly about another: What’s with the Twitter tag?
A year of being
John Kelly on
Twitter has left
me with more
questions than
answers. Actually,
John
I’ve been
Kelly's
@johnkelly on
Washington Twitter for 10
years — and John
Kelly everywhere
else for even longer. But it’s just
in the past 12 months or so, as
Gen. John F. Kelly has been
serving Donald Trump, that I’ve
had a good opportunity to
ponder the little bush wars that
break out across the
Twitterverse.
Sometimes I find myself
wondering, WWJKD?
Skip the next part if you
already know how Twitter
works. When someone
composes a tweet, they can tag
another Twitter user. This allows
the tagger to notify the tag-ee
that the tweet contains
something that might interest
them or, indeed, is about them.
Often, when the tweeter starts
typing a name, a list of
suggested tags comes up. A blue
check mark means that an
account is “verified,” indicating
that the person is who she says
she is.
I’m verified because I’m a
journalist at The Washington
Post. Presumably, the other John
Kelly could get verified, too,
though, to his credit (and unlike
his boss), he seems not to be on
Twitter (unless he tweets
anonymously under some
handle like “PrettyPony1950”).
I’ve written about this in the
past — how a lot of people who
mean to tag the White House’s
John Kelly tag me instead — but
what I’ve been contemplating
lately is why people would want
to tag Gen. John Kelly in the
first place. What do they hope
will happen if Gen. John Kelly
ever saw their tweet?
Let’s take one of my favorite
@johnkelly-tagged tweets, sent
at 7:22 a.m. on Oct. 20, 2017. It is
a model of candor: “u a [female
dog].”
Fifteen minutes later,
apparently having realized his
mistake, this user tweeted at
me: “i apologize for calling you a
[female dog] lol i meant that for
someone else, enjoy your day.”
It’s the “enjoy your day” that
really makes that tweet special.
Of course, that tweet may not
have been intended for the
White House’s John Kelly. This

one from comedian Chelsea
Handler was: “Well, we now
know @JohnKelly is a racist.
Don’t know why I thought he
was righting the ship, but it’s
clear this ship is iceberg bound.”
Sometimes when I see tweets
like this — or ones praising Kelly
— I respond with a tweet of my
own, noting that they’ve tagged
the wrong person. My subtext is:
How can we trust your
argument — whether it’s
#NeverTrump or #MAGA — if
you can’t even spare the
10 seconds it takes to tag the
correct person?
But that still leaves me with
that question: Why have they
tagged the White House chief of
staff ? Did they think he would
be moved by their 280-character
salvo?

LAWYER FROM B1
for March in San Francisco.
Wertkin has admitted to hawking sealed files he spirited out of
the Justice Department’s civilfraud division where he worked
for six years until 2016. He
walked out, court records state,
with files for cases to which he
had not been assigned, raising
questions about how the department polices its attorneys and
the possible damage to investigations aimed at recovering millions of dollars for taxpayers.
Before his sentencing, Wertkin
has promised to meet with Justice Department supervisors to
tell them how he managed to
steal sensitive documents without being detected. The pledge is
part of his plea deal on charges of
obstructing justice and transporting stolen property when he
took a file from Washington to
California for a sale before he was
caught last January.
When he gathered up the cases
in his last month on the federal
job in April 2016, “I knew and
understood that doing so was an
illegal theft of the complaints
and, during my exit process, I
intentionally lied to the Department of Justice about taking the
complaints with me,” Wertkin
said in court at his plea hearing.
Exactly how many cases he
stole or what he did with all of the
information remains murky, but
Wertkin was clear in his 10-page
plea agreement about why he did
it: “I began secretly reviewing
and collecting complaints to
identify clients to solicit for business when I was in practice and,
thereby, to make myself more
successful at Akin Gump.”
And he did not dally trying to
drum up clients after joining the
firm in mid-April 2016, court
statements show.

based technology security provider, Wertkin said he tried to sell
a second sealed lawsuit last January to a company headquartered
in Oregon after first mailing an
employee a redacted copy of the
cover sheet in the federal case to
show he had the real goods to
offer. He also said he used information in an undisclosed number of sealed complaints “to improperly solicit” more business,
managing in one case to persuade a company “to retain my
services as an attorney to represent it in its lawsuit.”
After his arrest Jan. 31, Wertkin returned to Washington to
clean out his Akin Gump office
near Dupont Circle, where he
removed and destroyed electronic and paper copies of other
stolen cases “that I knew could
further incriminate me,” he said
in plea papers.
Wertkin’s defense team, led by
Cristina C. “Cris” Arguedas,
whose cases have included O.J.
Simpson’s defense on doublemurder charges in 1995, said
Wertkin had no comment on the
case and referred to the defense
lawyers’ public statement issued
after his plea. That statement
said: “Jeff has led a hard-working
and honorable life for many
years. In a lapse of judgment, he
made bad choices. He takes full
responsibility and is doing his
best to make amends.”
No company that Wertkin approached is named in filings in
his criminal case, although two
lawsuits whose details he tried to
sell were described as pending
before the U.S. District Court for
the Northern District of California.
Spokesmen for the Justice Department and U.S. attorney’s office for Northern California said
they could not comment beyond
court pleadings “in this ongoing
litigation.”

any accusations of misconduct by
Wertkin while he worked there
and that its Office of Professional
Responsibility had no record of
any complaints.
Benjamin J. Harris, a spokesman for the Akin Gump firm,
said in a statement: “The firm
worked to protect its clients’
interests throughout this matter.
Mr. Wertkin’s conduct was reprehensible, and when that conduct
was revealed, Mr. Wertkin’s position at the firm was immediately
terminated. Consistent with its
ethical duties, the firm has cooperated with the government’s investigation.” Akin Gump has
more than 900 lawyers worldwide and since 2014 has ranked
as Washington’s top-earning lobbying firm.
Wertkin, the son of a surgeon
and a registered nurse in the
affluent New York City suburbs,
graduated from Haverford College in 1998 and earned a law
degree and a master’s degree in
government from Georgetown
University. He is married with a
young son and a daughter.
In 2010, Wertkin left the Patton Boggs law firm to join the
Justice Department. During his
time at Justice, he also, for three
years, taught a seven-week-long
class on federal agency rulemaking as an adjunct professor
at Georgetown University. He
bought a condominium in Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, which he used to secure his
release on $750,000 bond after
his arrest.
Several of Wertkin’s former
Justice Department colleagues
did not respond to requests for
interviews or said they could not
comment on his case or its ramifications.
But people close to him say his
crime is an aberrant act.
“On its face, it’s a breakdown,”
said a legal colleague who spoke
on the condition of anonymity to
avoid jeopardizing a friendship
with Wertkin and his pending
sentencing. “It’s hard to under-
stand and it’s not understandable, because it doesn’t fit anything else in his life. He was an
unusually straight arrow.”
“Wertkin has resigned from
the bar,” the person said, and is
“back to the guy he’s always been”
and is spending time taking care
of his children.
Months before Wertkin left the
Justice Department, he was cocounsel in one of the most complex False Claims Act trials in
recent history, a potentially
groundbreaking and particularly
difficult $200 million case
against AseraCare, a Texas-based
for-profit hospice provider. Government lawyers were stunned
when the judge set aside a jury
verdict in their favor in a decision
that raised new hurdles to future
prosecutions.
James F. Barger Jr., a private
lawyer from Birmingham, Ala.,
who represented the whistleblower in the case, called Wertkin “extremely dedicated, one of
the hardest-working DOJ lawyers I ever met.”
“And the whole time I was with
him, which I can’t count the
number of hours, he displayed
great integrity, and he had serious concern for the interests of
the United States,” Barger said.
“Why he did what he did, I don’t
know.”
Wertkin pleaded guilty to two
counts of obstructing justice by
disclosing the two sealed lawsuits and to one count of interstate transport of stolen property.
The charges carry a statutory
maximum of 20 years in prison,
but in the plea agreement both
sides reached, prosecutors would
not seek a prison term of more
than 30 to 37 months barring
additional discoveries about
Wertkin’s conduct.
He faces sentencing March 7
before U.S. District Judge Maxine
M. Chesney in San Francisco.

December 2010, his assignments
included cases that often result
in multimillion-dollar corporate
paybacks to the government after
whistleblowers — who can receive part of recovered funds —
tip off investigators to fraud in
federal services and contracts.
Known as qui tam lawsuits
under the False Claims Act, the
cases are brought under seal to
protect the investigations and
the whistleblowers. There were
702 qui tam actions filed in 2016,
and the Justice Department recovered $4.7 billion under the
law, it reported.
Wertkin “led more than 20
major fraud investigations” at
the department, Akin Gump said
when it announced his hiring.
In violating that secrecy, Wertkin may have done “irreparable
harm” by scaring off future whistleblowers, said Nola J. Hitchcock Cross, a managing attorney
at the Cross Law Firm of Milwaukee, who worked with a whistleblower in one of Wertkin’s federal
fraud cases.
“Any whistleblowers will not
bring fraud to the government’s
attention through the False
Claims Act if they are influenced
by Mr. Wertkin’s conduct and fear
that their identity will not, in
fact, remain under seal during
the government’s investigation,”
Cross said. “Every time a potential whistleblower hesitates to
bring fraud to the government
attention, the taxpayers suffer a
potential loss, often in the hundreds of millions of dollars.”
The Justice Department has
not said what damage Wertkin’s
actions may have caused or how
it is assessing his impact. But in

A glitch in the D.C. Superior
Court’s internal jury duty system
led to a failure to mail notices to
thousands of city residents, forcing court officials to frantically
email summonses last week, only
days before trials were to start.
Court officials confirmed over
the weekend that the computer
problem occurred at Christmastime and caused the court to fail
to print out and mail the summonses on time. Prospective jurors should have had about a
month to prepare for duty.
Because of the error, court
officials realized that no jurors
were available for trials for the
next two weeks and quickly sent
THE REGION
Warm, damp air
brings dramatic
fog but little rain
to ease drought
BY
M ARTIN W EIL
After a mostly dry month here,
Sunday was damp and foggy, and
out 2,330 emails to tell residents
that they had been selected for
jury duty beginning Monday. The
court normally mails 5,000 jury
duty summonses each week.
Leah Gurowitz, a spokeswoman for the court, called the glitch
an “oversight” that was noticed
last week as court officials began
preparing for upcoming trials.
In a statement, she called the
delay in sending notices “a onetime” event, saying summonses
will be mailed four to six weeks
in advance, as before, from now
on.
Prospective jurors who alert
the court that they are unable to
serve during the next two weeks
can request a later date, Gurowitz said.
The hiccup came less than a
year after the court rolled out a
phone system that allows prospective jurors to call in the night
before their duty begins to determine whether they are needed,
instead of traveling downtown
and waiting to find out.
Gurowitz said the court obtained the prospective jurors’
email addresses from forms
filled out during earlier stints.
The emails went out on
Wednesday, causing some prospective jurors to visit the court’s
third-floor jury office late last
week, confused and angry about
the short notice. The court also
mailed paper summonses to the
email recipients.
though the rainfall wasn’t heavy,
the fog seemed spectacular, providing memorable views of
Washington’s monuments rising
from the mists.
When Jennifer McPhail, who
was out on a long run, reached
the Tidal Basin, she said it was
“covered in this mist.” That
turned into a wall of fog, she
said, and “poking up out of it”
was the Washington Monument.
As relatively warm, moist air
condensed, thick layers of fog
hung over Washington’s water-
ways. The Potomac River was
shielded from view for a time.
It created an aura of mystery
that led one Twitter user to
observe that he expected to see
the legendary lost sailing vessel,
the Flying Dutchman, loom into
view.
The picturesque sights did
little to diminish the drought,
however; rainfall amounted to
only about 1/6 of an inch. (Yet it
was enough for McPhail to report that “my feet pruned!”)

SU
an insurgent campaign, eschewing corporate or PAC money and
pushing for “radical change” in
criminal justice, education and
health care.
“The establishment needs to be
challenged, and it needs to be
challenged in their footholds and
in the places where they feel safe,”
she said during an interview in
the sun-filled living room of her
Rockville, Md., apartment.
A framed copy of President Barack Obama’s order commuting
her 35-year sentence hangs above
the mantel, flanked by photos of
anarchist Emma Goldman and
playwright Oscar Wilde, both of
whom faced imprisonment.
Hers is a battle in the mold of
progressives such as Sen. Bernie
Sanders (I-Vt.) and Donna F. Edwards (D), who lost primaries in
Maryland in 2016 to establishment Democrats: presidential
nominee Hillary Clinton and
now-Sen. Chris Van Hollen. Both
Sanders and Edwards, who is now
running for Prince George’s County executive, gained a left-wing
following during their campaigns.
Manning hopes to do the same.
“This isn’t about criminal justice reform,” she said, “it’s about
criminal justice restructuring. We
need to start closing prisons. We
need to start releasing prisoners.”
The Affordable Care Act, pilloried by conservatives as government overreach, didn’t go far
enough, in Manning’s opinion.
She supports free, “no questions asked” health care for all but
said making that happen is a
“matter of debate for legislative
purposes.”
Asked how to pay for it, she
said: “Look at the defense budget.
We’re spending almost $600 billion a year on weapons of war.”
RICKY CARIOTI/THE WASHINGTON POST
Chelsea Manning is eschewing
corporate or PAC money.
For all her renegade tactics,
Manning also is employing a wellworn approach to early campaigning: seeking advice from
community groups in “listening
sessions.”
In the two weeks since her campaign got a surprise jump-start
when a conservative blog tweeted
her federal filing form, she said,
1,000 individual donors have contributed. (Fundraising reports are
due Wednesday.)
The team consists of Manning,
a communications director, an operations director and a finance
director. Each has an equal say in
decision-making, she said.
Her campaign slogan: “#WeGotThis.”
That slogan was her mantra in
prison, Manning said, a way to
keep up her morale.
“Any rational person would say
we didn’t have a chance, but we
kept fighting and we kept going
even though we couldn’t see the
light at the end of the tunnel,” she
said.
While Manning’s trans identity
links her to a wave of LGBT candidates running in 2018, she said her
experiences behind bars, deployments to Iraq in 2009 and 2010,
and the months she spent homeless and adrift in Chicago in 2006
give her credibility in the race.
“I’m trans and I bring some
experience to the table, but this
isn’t about that,” she said.
Living with an aunt in Maryland before enlisting in the Army,
she worked at a Starbucks and the
Abercrombie & Fitch store at
Westfield Montgomery Mall, and
took classes at the University of
Maryland University College and
Montgomery College, she said.
During Army breaks she returned to Maryland, maintaining
residency there until she entered
prison in 2010.
She expresses no regrets about
leaking a trove of confidential
documents and said criticism that
she is an “American traitor” rings
hollow today.
“In a society where people can
call Hillary Clinton, James B.
Comey — anybody that you disagree with politically becomes a
traitor, then we can’t have a debate,” she said.
“Given the circumstances that I
was in and everything that I knew
at the time, I did what I felt was
the right decision to make. I can’t
go back and change that,” she said.
She says her intelligence knowhow would be an asset in the
Senate, especially when privacy
issues are debated.
Pointing to congressional reauthorization last week of the warrantless surveillance program,
known as the Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Act, or FISA, she
said: “We need someone to push
back against this machine so that
we can dismantle it, so that we can
stop living in fear.”

Guards say they acted appropriately
GUARDS FROM B1
began in November, are set for
Monday.
After emotional testimony
from McBride’s widow, as well as
accounts of eyewitnesses, bone
specialists and medical experts,
Brown and Montgomery each
took the stand in recent weeks,
giving their first public statements on the Sept. 29, 2015, incident.
Montgomery, 32, said that as
he came upon the incident he
approached McBride from behind, clasped him in a bear hug
and tried to pull him to a seated
position to calm him.
He said he did not know that
McBride was elderly. “I just saw a
tall man in a hospital gown who
appeared to suddenly become violent,” he said. Defense attorneys
said McBride was about 6 feet tall
and 240 pounds.
Montgomery told jurors that
his foot slipped on the wet grass
and he and McBride fell to the
ground, with Montgomery landing on top of the patient.
Prosecutors had a far different
view based on eyewitness accounts. They argued that as
Brown was trying to coax
McBride back into the hospital,
Montgomery, who is 6-foot-2 and
300 pounds, came from behind,
grabbed McBride and slammed
him to the ground.
“It was like a linebacker blindsiding a quarterback, a powerdrive move to the ground,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Bridgette
Tillman said during her opening
statements. “Mr. McBride never
saw it coming.”
Prosecutors say as McBride
was on the ground, Montgomery
then knelt on McBride’s body.
Prosecutors say Brown crouched
on the ground next to McBride,
and pushed McBride’s head to the
ground, pressing his weight on
McBride’s head.
On the stand, Brown, 44, disputed that account. At times wiping tears away as the judge provided him tissues, Brown insisted
that he never pushed McBride’s
head against the ground. He testified that he knelt next to McBride
and used three fingers to hold the
patient’s head still, fearing that
JONATHAN NEWTON/THE WASHINGTON POST
Charles Brown, left, and
Clifton Montgomery are
charged in the death of a 74year-old D.C. hospital patient.
McBride was trying to spit at or
bite him or Montgomery.
“I don’t think I did anything
wrong. I don’t think I did anything to kill him,” said Brown,
who had worked as a guard for
the hospital for nine years before
the altercation with McBride.
Brown’s mother had previously
worked as a nurse at the hospital.
Brown’s attorney, Christopher
Mead, said that because McBride
repeatedly swung his fist at him,
Brown could have arrested him
on charges of assault on a police
officer. While not officers with the
D.C. police department, the
guards were armed and had arrest powers. They had been
trained using D.C. police guidelines.
“That’s not what I wanted to
do,” Brown said. “I just wanted
him to get back inside to get help.”
Brown testified that when hospital officials first summoned
him to the street outside the
complex, he saw McBride walking, with a nurse next to him
trying to persuade him to go back
inside the hospital. As Brown
walked up to him, McBride swung
at him twice, causing Brown to
avoid the punches, Brown said.
Brown testified that McBride
did not want to go back to the
hospital and repeatedly said, “I’m
going to die in there.” McBride,
who had diabetes, had been
brought to the hospital because of
dizziness and also was being tested for dementia, according to
testimony.
Under cross-examination by
prosecutors, Brown said that he
had earlier told authorities that
he pushed McBride’s head and
that he failed to follow security
procedures.
Brown said he was startled
when, as he was guiding McBride
back to the hospital, the patient
pulled away and swung at him.
“I was like, ‘Sir, please calm
down. We don’t want to fight. I
just want to get you back into the
building,’ ” Brown told the jury.
This is when Brown said Montgomery arrived at the scene and
intervened.
Montgomery testified he never
knelt on McBride’s body as the
two were on the ground. He said
he held McBride’s arms, saying,
“Sir, please calm down.”
At one point, Montgomery’s
attorney, David Schertler, asked
his client to step down from the
witness stand and demonstrate
for the jury how he grabbed
McBride. At one point, Schertler’s
legs were lifted off the floor as
Montgomery held him and the
two men ended up on the floor.
Montgomery said he was “in
shock” when he learned of
McBride’s injuries.
“That was the safest way I
could handle the situation,” he
testified. He said the encounter
happened in seconds.
Brown similarly told the jury,
“I was not intending to hurt him.
It’s such a sad situation. We just
tried to get him back inside the
hospital so he could receive treatment and it just went in another
direction.” As he spoke, McBride’s
wife stood up and walked out of
the courtroom. McBride’s daughter silently wiped away tears.
Montgomery also said that he
earlier told authorities that he
“took” McBride to the ground.
Prosecutors said that statement
proved it was Montgomery’s intent to knock McBride to the
ground. During the trial, Montgomery said he had misspoken
then.
Neither Brown nor Montgomery is employed at the hospital.
In an emailed statement, MedStar Washington spokeswoman
Donna Arbogast called McBride’s
death a “devastating and transformational moment” for the hospital. She said it led to changes
involving hiring and training of
individuals involved in public
safety at the hospital.

Manning challenges senator from Md.
SENATE FROM B1
. MONDAY,
IBL/SHUTTERSTOCK/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Ingvar Kamprad, shown in 1966, founded Ikea when he was 17. The retailer is known for its low-priced
furniture and baffling assembly instructions — as well as the Swedish meatballs it serves in its stores.
INGVAR KAMPRAD, 91
Ikea founder, envoy of Swedish style
BY
H ARRISON S MITH
Ingvar Kamprad, a Swedish entrepreneur who grew a childhood
business selling matches and lingonberries into Ikea, a build-ityourself furniture empire that introduced sleek Scandinavian designs into tens of millions of
homes around the world, died
Jan. 27 at his home in Smaland, a
province in southern Sweden. He
was 91.
A spokeswoman for Ikano
Group, a finance and real estate
conglomerate that Mr. Kamprad
founded as part of Ikea, confirmed
the death but did not give a cause.
Born into a family of rural farmers, Mr. Kamprad was a self-described lazy, dyslexic child who
flirted with far-right groups in
Sweden as a teenager, grew into a
hard-driving alcoholic as an adult
and built one of the most influential design and retail companies of
the 20th century.
Founded in 1943 when Mr.
Kamprad was 17, Ikea sold picture
frames, nylon stockings, udder
balm and other small-town necessities before focusing on lowpriced furniture and home furnishings. Milking salves went by
the wayside as Mr. Kamprad
turned Ikea into the world’s largest furniture retailer, making a
fortune with products whose
bright colors and minimalist designs have become a ubiquitous
part of middle-class bedrooms,
kitchens, bathrooms, dens and
children’s play areas.
“On some Sundays in Britain,”
the Guardian newspaper reported
in 2004, “almost twice as many
people visit [Ikea] as attend
church; it has been calculated that
10% of Europeans currently alive
were conceived in one of Ikea’s
beds.”
Although Mr. Kamprad had
stepped away from Ikea’s board in
recent years, serving since 1988 as
a senior adviser, he was widely
regarded as the company’s leading
architect and a powerful force behind the scenes.
The central tenet of his business
model was simple, spurred by an
idea from one of his chief designers, Gillis Lundgren, to take the
legs off tables the company was
storing in its warehouses. It was
not the first time unbuilt goods
had been sold to consumers, but
the idea — “flat-pack” furniture for
flat-wallet families — had never
been tried on such a large scale.
Ikea now sports 412 stores
across 49 countries, branches that
sprawl more than 400,000 square
feet and feature model rooms
stocked with Malm bed frames,
Poang chairs, Billy bookcases and
Ektorp sofas.
The company has become a
leading cultural ambassador for
Sweden, taking its name from Mr.
Kamprad’s initials and the first
letters of the farm (Elmtaryd) and
village (Agunnaryd) where he was
raised. Its logo employs the blue
and gold colors of the Swedish
flag, and its restaurants and food
aisles — created by Mr. Kamprad
in an effort to keep customers
shopping — offer candy Swedish
fish and traditional meatballs
served with cream sauce or lingonberry jam.
“Empty stomachs,” Mr. Ingvar
once quipped, “make no sofa
sales.”
In addition to foot traffic from
its bricks-and-mortar stores,
Ikea’s business has been helped
along for decades by a catalogue
that is translated into more than
30 languages. With about 200 million copies printed each year, its
circulation reportedly rivals that
of the Bible, the Koran and the
“Harry Potter” books, whose magical summoning spells might be
useful for finding missing dowels
and screws that vanish during the
assembly process.
Yet while Mr. Kamprad’s company has grown in prominence,
the details of his personal life have
become obscured by a public-relations machine that has made him
a business-executive embodiment
of lista, the Swedish concept of
“making do” that Mr. Kamprad
has described as being central to
the Ikea mission.
Publicly, at least, he made an art
of making do, demonstrating a
frugality that bordered on asceticism. He drove an old Volvo, recycled his tea bags, reportedly pilfered the salt and pepper packets
at restaurants and visited markets
in the late afternoon to find discounted produce. Ikea catalogues
were photographed using company employees instead of models,
and staff were encouraged to write
on both sides of a sheet of paper.
For decades, the company
seemed to be thriving under his
watch, as it avoided controversy
and seemed to instill in its employees a near-fanatical devotion to
Mr. Kamprad.
That appeared to change beginning in 1994, when Sweden’s Expressen newspaper uncovered
documents that linked the company founder to pro-Nazi groups in
the 1940s. Mr. Kamprad disavowed his participation with the
groups, describing it in a letter to
Ikea employees as a youthful mistake and “a part of my life which I
bitterly regret.”
Nearly two decades later, a book
by Swedish journalist Elisabeth
Asbrink extended the claims, linking Mr. Kamprad to a group that
succeeded the country’s swastikaflying National Socialist Workers
Party. His activity in the group was
extensive enough that, in the same
year Mr. Kamprad formed Ikea,
Sweden’s state police began investigating him and speculated that
he held a leadership position in
the organization.
Around that time, Mr. Kamprad’s management style also
came under criticism. “There was
an unwritten law for Ikea upper
management: loyalty to Ingvar
unto death,” Johan Stenebo, a former senior manager at the company, wrote in “The Truth About
Ikea” (2009). Comparing the company’s management culture to
that of the Stasi, East Germany’s
secret police, he described a network of informers that kept Mr.
Kamprad apprised of the latest
office gossip and accused Ikea’s
executives of racism. (Approached
by Germany’s Der Spiegel newsmagazine, the company declined
to comment.)
To followers of Mr. Kamprad,
however, perhaps the most shocking allegation was a detail about
Mr. Kamprad’s preferred mode of
transportation. The aging Volvo
that appeared in many news stories about the executive was merely a prop and publicity device,
Stenebo wrote. Instead, he said,
Mr. Kamprad drove a Porsche.
Ingvar Feodor Kamprad was
born in the Swedish village of Pjatteryd, near Almhult, on March 30,
1926. His father was a Germanborn farmer, and his mother was a
Swedish homemaker.
According to company lore, Ingvar was 5 when he started his first
business venture, selling matches
to his neighbors. Sales of berries,
seeds and other home goods soon
followed, and after Mr. Kamprad
graduated from high school he
began using the town’s milk van
for deliveries.
Although Ikea is widely beloved
in Sweden, the company initially
riled competitors who were frustrated by its low prices and organized a boycott. Mr. Kamprad responded by buying wood from
communist Poland and elsewhere
around the world, and around this
time began drinking heavily. He
described the habit as alcoholism
but later said he cut back on his
drinking.
A marriage to Kerstin Wadling
ended in divorce, and he married
Margaretha Stennert in 1963. The
couple lived in Switzerland for
many years, reportedly for tax reasons, and Mr. Kamprad returned
to his home country shortly after
her death in 2011.
Survivors include an adopted
daughter from his first marriage,
Annika Kihlbom; and three sons
from his second marriage, Peter,
Jonas and Mathias Kamprad, who
hold top positions within the Ikea
empire.
Mr. Kamprad was once estimated to be the world’s fourth-richest
person, with a net worth of up to
$28 billion according to Forbes
magazine. But the valuations assumed his assets were Ikea’s, and
in the last several decades the
company has restructured so that
its assets are owned by a foundation. Swedish tax filings from 2013
established his wealth at about
$113 million, according to the Associated Press.
While Mr. Kamprad’s move to
Switzerland and Nazi connections
riled many Swedes, he remained
widely beloved in his home country, where in 2010 the Malmo City
Theatre premiered a show entitled, “Ingvar! A Musical Furniture
Saga.” Mr. Kamprad’s character is
crucified on a maypole, according
to the New Yorker, but much like
his real-life counterpart he remained unfazed.
In this case, he burst into song:
“Do you think this can stop
Ingvar?”

VIRGINIA
High school ‘dreamer’ to attend Trump’s State of the Union address
BY
F AIZ S IDDIQUI
A Virginia high school student
will attend President Trump’s
State of the Union address Tuesday as the guest of Rep. Gerald E.
Connolly (D-Va.).
Nicolle Uria, a senior at Annandale High School in Fairfax County, is a volleyball player, aspiring
media mogul — and one of the
estimated 1.8 million “dreamers”
whose future has been uncertain
since Sept. 5, when Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The program was created in
2012 for undocumented immigrants who came to the United
States as children.
“Nicolle is a bright, talented
student who until last September
lived the American Dream,” Con-
nolly said in a statement. “She
was looking forward to going to
college and to run her own media
company one day, until President
Trump put that future in jeopardy
with his callous decision to end
DACA.”
Uria’s parents moved from Bolivia to the United States on work
visas 16 years ago, when she was a
year old, and remained in the
country when their visas expired.
Her parents and older sisters later obtained temporary green
cards, opening up a path to permanent residence, but Trump’s
decision to rescind DACA put
Uria’s status in jeopardy.
“It’s like you’re sailing in a
beautiful ocean and then you
crash and it’s raining a lot,” Uria
said in a Washington Post profile
in October. “And you’re stuck and
you don’t know where to go,
which way to swim, it’s dark and
you can’t see. That’s how I feel
right now with DACA maybe ending.”
Unless Congress can reach a
solution, Uria’s DACA status will
expire in September. White
House officials have offered a
path to citizenship for dreamers
in exchange for $25 billion in
funding for a border wall between
the United States and Mexico and
tightened immigration restrictions.
Connolly’s decision to bring
Uria to the address was a rebuke
of Trump’s decision to end DACA.
“She and so many other dreamers are exactly the young people
we don’t want to turn away from
our country,” Connolly said.
“They are what makes America
such a great nation.”

Artists plan to build a strong D.C. community with a≠ordable studio space
ART FROM B1
feature mostly lacking in the District. And the cheap real estate
that has drawn artists to cities
like Pittsburgh or Baltimore
doesn’t exist here.
But these artists, who all enjoy
national and international reputations and have been exhibited
in museums like the Hirschhorn
and the National Portrait Gallery,
beg to differ with the idea that
Washington is not an art town.
They are embarking on a project
they hope will turn around the
city’s reputation as an artistic
backwater.
The idea is to provide studio
space to about 40 serious working
artists, and in doing so create a
community of artists and a destination for curators, collectors
and visiting artists. They have
even found an honest-to-goodness industrial space to house it:
a two-story brick building in Eckington between the Rhode Island
and NoMa Metro stops, not far
from Catholic University and
Union Market and abutting the
Branch trail. The Phillips Collection, Halcyon, Studio Visit, Hamiltonian and the Washington
Project for the Arts have also
signed on as partners.
The Eckington property has for
years been used as a therapy
institute and Kabuki theater. Before anyone still alive can remember, it was a stable for a Nabisco
factory. A wooden structure that
was used to hoist hay up to the
horses on the second floor still
exists in one of the rooms.
That was a coincidence — the
group had already come up with
the name STABLE for the project.
When they saw the building, “we
said it’s kismet, it has to be,”
Meyers said.
A friend who is a developer
tried to buy the 36,000-squarefoot building for them when it
went up for sale in 2016, but he
was outbid. However, the developer that bought it, Boundary
Cos. (which is also developing a
large mixed-use project with subsidized “maker space” in Eckington) and Foulger-Pratt, was will-

ing to work with the group, offering an affordable 10-year lease on
10,000 square feet of the building
and agreeing to build out the
space on the condition that they
raise $250,000 of their own to
fund other aspects of the project.
It was a far cry from other
developers they have encountered, who didn’t understand an
enterprise that was not about the
bottom line, Doud said. (One
asked them how an art studio was
different from a prison in business terms.) “They wanted the
cool effect, but they didn’t understand the philanthropic model,”
he said.
Developers might like the fact
that artists move in to an underdeveloped neighborhood and
pave the way for its gentrification,
but they don’t always recognize
the value in them being able to
afford to stick around afterward,
Meyers said.
“Having artists around is a way
to brand yourself, but they don’t
fully understand what an artist
needs,” she said. “An artist needs
solitude, an artist needs community, an artist needs stability, and
this project has all of those components.”
Joshua Bernstein of Bernstein
Management, the original bidder,
said he sees this kind of deal as a
win-win for developers. “It is a
vital part of our cultural ecosystem,” he said. “I care about helping artists get established, especially in the challenging early
years of their careers, but I also
care as a resident and property
owner because it enhances my life
and those of our tenants.”
The D.C. Commission on the
Arts and Humanities funds individual artists and arts organizations, but “they are not doing
enough to foster community,”
Meyers said.
“In other areas, governments
understand the upside to having
artists working in their areas —
like Hyattsville gets it,” Meyers
said. “They have an arts district
that they’ve designated. . . . D.C. is
seen as a government town. But
we have so many wonderful, serious artists in this city. We just
have to provide a space for us all
to be together and then we will be
visible.’’
Walking through the unfinished building recently, the group
bristled with excitement. They
pointed out the 18-foot-high
space that will be divided into six
large studios, and more warrenlike spaces that will house 18
more. Some studios will be
shared, for a total of around 40
artists, who will apply and be
selected by a panel of curators,
arts professionals and other experts. The space will also house a
lounge, a library and a 1,100square-foot gallery, which will
showcase artists from inside or
outside the community. Half of
the project’s annual budget will
be covered by leasing space to
individual artists and the other
half through fundraising.
Two-thirds of the studios will
be rented out with renewable
leases. The rest will be reserved
for visiting artists — including,
the founders hope, international
ones brought in by Washington’s
embassies, which have the propensity to be natural partners
with their interests in spreading
culture.
The goal is not so much to help
Doud, Meyers and Price professionally — as award-winning artists, they don’t really need it. Only
Price will have daily involvement
at the site as executive director,
and she will move her studio
there.
But the project partners do
hope to benefit in other ways. All
three described feeling isolated
upon moving to the District after
living in New York City, where
there is a more robust community
of artists to inspire and support
each other.
So, while the artists at STABLE
might work in solitude, the idea
of the project is to foster community. “It’s not a space where you go
in and close your door,” said
Doud.
The group has raised about
$75,000 of the $250,000 needed
through donations and a grant.
On Saturday, they will hold a
dance party at the site to raise
more.
The District also has some advantages for artists that places
like New York don’t have, Price
said. “D.C. is so small . . . you can
actually know curators.”
If all goes well, the artists hope
STABLE will be a spark that generates more such endeavors in the
city and will change the way
people see the city, from collectors and curators to tourists who
may start to look for art beyond
just the city’s big museums.
“People are hungry, they’re
hungry for creativity and excitement,” Meyers said. “We need a
soul and it’s here. . . . I’ve been
talking to so many people saying
they’ve wanted to see this happen
for so long.”

It’s wrong
to cry ‘witch

harassment
THE GRAMMYS
When the news
broke Thursday
that the National
Gallery of Art had
postponed two
exhibitions beMargaret
cause the artists
Sullivan
have been accused of sexual
misconduct, reaction from some
quarters was predictable.
People slammed the gallery’s
management for a rush to judgment and bashed women accusers for being oversensitive
snowflakes.
One commenter on The
Washington Post website put it
harshly: “The National Gallery
is now making decisions about
exhibitions based on mere accusations of boorish behavior. It
has become a witch hunt by a
bunch of third-wave feminists
who want to rid the world of
men.”
That thinking is upside down.
It fuels a wrongheaded backlash
to the long-overdue reckoning
on sexual harassment.
And it misunderstands how
sexual harassment allegations
often first become known to the
public.
“I always read these stories
with a lot of awareness that I’m
getting an incomplete picture,”
said Emily Martin, general
counsel at the Washingtonbased National Women’s Law
Center, an advocacy organization administering a legal-defense fund for victims of harassment.
“There can be a misperception that if details are not in the

Bruno Mars’s sweep shut out rap yet again, but there was lots of respect for the movements of the moment
SULLIVAN CONTINUED ON C2
BY
“I didn’t think they gave the rightful
respect to hip-hop.” That was Jay-Z’s position back in 2002 when someone asked
him why he’d boycotted the Grammys
since 1999.
Leap ahead 16 years to Sunday’s 60th
Grammy Awards in New York — where
Jay-Z led the nominees with eight nods —
and that respect was still nowhere to be
seen. For the first time ever, three of the
artists nominated for album of the year
were rappers: Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and
Childish Gambino, the nom de rap of
actor-director Donald Glover. But all three
artists lost to “24K Magic,” a collection of
overly hygienic funk ditties by Bruno Mars.
Jay-Z went home empty-handed.
And he’d already been having a rough
day. On Sunday morning, after CNN had
aired an interview during which Jay-Z
critiqued President Trump’s poor word
choices, Trump lobbed a tweet in the
rapper’s direction: “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies,
Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER
RECORDED!”
But in a strange and unfortunate way,
Trump’s outburst illuminated something
big: that American rappers are among the

Nuschese, it’s

On Saturday
night, Nuschese’s
fellow restaurateur José Andrés
claimed via Twitter that he was
denied entry to an exclusive
event at Cafe Milano. Andrés,
who spent nearly two years in a
legal battle with President
Trump and has staunchly
criticized the administration’s
stance on immigration, took his
beef a step further by suggesting
that presidential daughter
Ivanka Trump had something
to do with the slight.
By Sunday morning, the
Twitterverse, including input
from a former Mexican
ambassador, appeared
convinced of Cafe Milano’s —
and Ivanka Trump’s —
malevolence. Hours later,
however, Andrés, Trump and
Nuschese were all pals again.
So what happened? How did
Andrés manage to transform
what would have been a ho-hum
gathering of one-percenters into
the Trump controversy du jour?
It all started with a really big
party.
On Saturday, the uber-rich
folk descended on Washington

group of business and political

and that their music is more significant
than most.
So when will the Grammys finally figure
out that rap music is the dominant pop
idiom of our era? It’s been 14 long years
since OutKast won album of the year for
“Speakerboxx/The Love Below” way back
in 2004, and there hasn’t been a rapper to
take the industry’s top honor before or
since. That’s inexplicable and inexcusable
— most recently in regard to Kendrick
Lamar, the Los Angeles virtuoso who became a three-time album of the year loser
Sunday night.
To the Recording Academy, it seems that
Lamar is good for boosting television ratings but not good enough to receive the
night’s top honors. The rapper opened
Sunday’s starry telecast with a riveting
medley, cramming his verses with complicated rhymes about race, faith and mortality. He was also joined, for a moment, by
U2’s Bono and the Edge, as well as by
comedian Dave Chappelle, who made an
interstitial announcement: “I just wanted
to remind the audience that the only thing
more frightening than watching a black
man being honest in America is being an
honest black man in America.” Somehow, it
all held together. Ten minutes into the
party, Lamar already looked to be the hero
of the night.

M ICHAEL C AVNA
Mort Walker was one of those
people whose eyes smiled every
bit as brightly as their mouth.
And so, when I sat next to the
tuxedoed cartoonist at a 2010
Jersey City dinner and asked him
whether he ever had trouble coming up with ideas, he got a playful
glint in his eye before he replied:
“The other day, I took my wife to
the doctor. I waited an hour. By
the time she came out, I’d written
a few dozen jokes.”
Even that anecdote was delivered with the snap of an oldschool one-liner. Whether he was
wearing a military uniform in
World War II Italy or black-tie in
modern Jersey, Walker was forever determined to find the fun-
ny in life.
How else could a true “gag
man” succeed over eight decades,
graduating from greeting cards
to become one of the most-read
cartoonists on the planet?
Walker created or co-created
such globally popular strips as
“Beetle Bailey” and “Hi and Lois,”
as well as “Boner’s Ark” and
“Sam’s Strip.” His work was visually clean and narratively quick,
with deft setups and clear targets. He loved wordplay and pratfalls, but mostly, he knew his
comic strips needed funny people
you could relate to on some level.
And maybe that was the greatest comic gift of Walker, who died
Saturday morning at his Stamford, Conn., home after battling
pneumonia, according to the Na-

tional Cartoonists Society. He
was 94, and still active in the
comics industry.
“I was fortunate to get to know
Mort Walker through my membership in the National Cartoonists Society,” Bill Morrison told
The Washington Post on Saturday, noting that as president of
the NCS, he presented Walker
with the Medal of Honor award
in 2016 at the Society of Illustrators in New York.
“Mort was the cartoonist that
everyone in our field aspires to
be,” Morrison said. “He created
laughter out of thin air nearly
every day of his life, and entertained multiple millions over the
course of eight decades with his
iconic characters.

dinner Saturday at the

SOURCE FROM C1
Madeleine Albright, former New York mayor Michael
Bloomberg (I), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Chief
Justice John G. Roberts Jr. And those were just the
speakers.
This year’s crop of “sprouts,” or new members, include
Apple CEO Tim Cook; Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich); the
chairman and CEO of Lazard, Kenneth Jacobs; Defense
Secretary Jim Mattis; 21st Century Fox CEO James
Murdoch; Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio); the incoming
chairman of the Federal Reserve, Jerome H. Powell; IBM
CEO Ginni Rometty; and the executive chairman of the
BlackIvy Group, Anthony Welters.
You get it, it’s a fancy affair.
Afterward, the herd, which this year also included Ivanka
Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, typically thins as
the VIPs head to a private after-party at Cafe Milano in
Georgetown. An invitation to that event, which has nearly a
dozen different hosts including Nuschese, BET co-founder
Bob Johnson and Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan,
among others, is even more exclusive than the dinner.
“It’s the A-list of the A-list parties,” said one person in the
room. Invitations are nontransferable and not guaranteed.
But Andrés, who attended the dinner at the Hilton where
he said he even chatted briefly with Ivanka, assumed he
would get in because of an “unwritten rule” on the
Washington party circuit: All after-parties are fair game.
“In Washington,” Andrés said in an interview, “when you
have these parties, everybody knows if you have an afterparty, you are going in.”
This particular after-party operated differently, however.
According to Nuschese, who has hosted a post-Alfalfa dinner
at his restaurant for the past nine years, “not everyone gets
invited.” To avoid a mob scene, the event is billed as a small
affair of 150 boldfacers.
After being denied entry into the party just before 11 p.m.,
Andrés, who said he knew his name wasn’t on the list, was
incredulous. Other guests were being allowed into the VIP
shindig without having to flash an invite, he said. Andrés felt
he was being left out of the fun unfairly and took to Twitter
to make the injustice known.
“Thank you @CafeMilanoDC Franco Nuschese!” Andrés
wrote. “I was a guest of the #alfalfaclubdinner2018 ‘everyone’
welcome to the after party, but I’m the only individual not
allow in? Is because @IvankaTrump told you so? You should
be ashamed of yourself Franco.@washingtonpost”
That tweet, liked more than 22,000 times and retweeted
more than 10,000 times, prompted both Ivanka Trump and
Nuschese to contact Andrés the next morning.
Asked whether Trump’s presence at the party kept Andrés
out, Nuschese replied, “Absolutely not.”
In fact, the Cafe Milano owner had been trying to reach
Andrés on Sunday morning, as the tweets and likes racked
up but didn’t have the superstar chef ’s direct number. The
two finally spoke Sunday afternoon.
“I said, ‘José, it was just a private party, and I’m sorry for
the misunderstanding, and I’m sorry for the way that you
feel,’ ” Nuschese recalled. After their chat, Andrés corrected
the record via social media.
His tweet said, “Thank you @CafeMilanoDC and Franco
for the apology. I understand was a ‘misunderstanding’. Still
hard to understand why I was the only person not allowed
in! Please people of @washingtondc keep supporting a great
resturant institution. Now let’s all be friends. #USAforward”
“I am thankful for Jose’s clarification,” said Trump, who
serves as an assistant to the president. “I had nothing to do
with anything that transpired relating to him last night at
the restaurant.”
The less-than-24-hour drama followed an evening,
described as “a funny Davos without the snow,” that was by
all accounts lighthearted and even touching.
Kerry, the club’s incoming president, toasted his friend
and fellow Alfalfan Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is
battling brain cancer, and had the crowd on its feet.
“If Washington is a city where you can bridge the divide
between a protester and a POW, finding common ground on
anything else shouldn’t be so hard at all,” Kerry said.
Later, Chief Justice Roberts ended the official program
with a word on civility, sending the main crowd off on a
positive note, said one attendee.

WALKER FROM C1
“For us doodlers, I don’t think
it gets any better than that.”
When I spoke with Walker in
2010, at the NCS’s Reuben
Awards ceremony, he held court
in a manner that befitted one of
the elder statesmen of the room.
To a good extent, this was still his
room, with an organization he
had led a half-century earlier.
Walker simply had a warmth and
a way that caused him to command attention, whether on the
page or the stage.
He sold his first cartoon by age
12, as a Kansas City, Mo., fifthgrader. He published more than
100 cartoons in magazines while
still a teenager, and sold a comic
strip to the Kansas City Journal.
Soon, he was working for the
company that would become
Hallmark, and he told his bosses
that they needed to provide humorous cards. They listened. “I
helped change the industry,”
Walker told me of his gravitational pull toward writing funny.
He was drafted into the Army
Air Corps during World War II,
RAY FAIRALL/ASSOCIATED PRESS

but within the world of Walker,
even that sometimes turned comically absurd. He spent time at
Camp Crowder, which he said
inspired “Beetle Bailey’s” Camp
Swampy. “I signed up to go into
psychiatry,” he told me in 2013 of
the Army’s specialized training
program, “and I ended up studying engineering. It was typical
Army reasoning.”
And even when Walker was
put in charge of 10,000 Germans
in a prisoner-of-war camp in
Naples, he said, “I sort of made
up my own rules all the way
along.”
Walker attended the University of Missouri after the war, and
the idea for an Army-themed
strip evolved from the original
concept inspired by friends. Several years later, “Beetle Bailey”
became one of the last comic
strips personally approved by
famed media magnate William
Randolph Hearst. “Beetle Bailey”
is syndicated by King Features to
this day, nearly 70 years later.
Once Walker landed in New
York, his wit and ambition only
grew. He helped create the NCS’s
Reuben Award, he said, and
pushed for the group’s inclusion
of female artists. He launched the
“Beetle Bailey” spinoff strip “Hi
and Lois” with Dik Browne.
And by the time he was anchored in Stamford, Conn., as
noted in writer Cullen Murphy’s
recent memoir “Cartoon County,”
Walker’s studio was so prolific
that it was jokingly referred to as
a King Features satellite office.
(Walker’s sons Brian and Greg
would join in producing his
strips, and son Neal would join
the studio.)
Walker wrote such books as
“The Lexicon of Comicana,”
which is filled with his coinage of
comics terms, and he established
the nation’s first cartoon art museum in the 1970s.
In recent years, “Beetle Bailey”
was syndicated to 1,800 newspapers in more than 50 countries.
So as Walker and I spoke in
2013, as he turned 90, what did he
think his legacy might be?
“I think a lot of that depends
on the rest of the world,” he said.
“What’s the future of newspapers? I might be leaving a legacy
of failure to my children. It’s like
Kodak — nobody buys film anymore. I have a typewriter sitting
in the corner that I haven’t used
in 15 years.”
As ever, Mort Walker viewed
even life’s darker shades through
the prism of humor. Everything,
even war, was fodder for jokes. It
was his way to rewrite the rules,
so he made sure to get the
last laugh.

Early misconduct news may list few details, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist
SULLIVAN FROM C1
not exist.”
For all kinds of reasons, the
specifics may be left out.
Nondisclosure agreements may
prohibit them. Humanresources or union rules may
argue against them.
We’re left with squishy
phrases such as “sexual
misconduct” and “inappropriate
workplace behavior.”
Meanwhile, journalistic
practice quite reasonably calls
for getting a response from the
accused, who often deny
wrongdoing altogether or admit
to something innocentsounding.
“The idea that I ever
assaulted any woman is
preposterous,” Las Vegas mogul
and now former Republican
National Committee finance
chairman Steve Wynn said in a
statement to the Wall Street
Journal after the paper’s
investigation turned up credible
allegations of decades-long
abuses, including soliciting sex
acts from manicurists and
massage therapists at his
casinos.
Wynn resigned from his
position on Saturday.
The Journal’s painstaking
investigation was hard to
ignore, as was the
overwhelming detail in the New
York Times investigation of
Hollywood bigwig Harvey
Weinstein. But that isn’t always
the case.
“Harassers often are able to
create the narrative right off the
bat,” said Nancy Erika Smith,
the lawyer who represented
Gretchen Carlson in her 2016
suit against Roger Ailes, which
ultimately brought down the
Fox News co-founder.
After all, she pointed out,
“How many victims have their
own PR teams at the ready?”
When radio icon Garrison
Keillor fell from grace late last
year, he claimed he was being
unfairly punished because he
once put a hand on a woman’s
bare back.
That’s what most people
heard, and what many
undoubtedly still believe.
“If I created a scale, I would
put Harvey Weinstein on one
end and Garrison Keillor on the
other end,” wrote Florida reader
Michael Stone in a letter to the
New York Times in late
November.
But recently, Minnesota
Public Radio reporters dug into
the Keillor story, interviewing
60 people for an investigation
published last week.
Not only did their own
interviews turn up disturbingly
detailed accounts from named
women, they also got Jon
McTaggart, the chief executive
of MPR and American Public
Media Group, to break his
silence on why he took Keillor
off the air.
“The company’s separation of
business interests from Keillor
came after it received
allegations of dozens of sexually
inappropriate incidents
involving Keillor and a woman
who worked for him on A
Prairie Home Companion,” the
report said. McTaggart said the
allegations included requests
for sexual contact and
descriptions of unwanted sexual
touching.
A far cry from that hand on a
back.
Keillor’s response? To criticize
the MPR journalists, saying they
couldn’t be fair in investigating
someone who had a close
relationship with their
company. In a letter to USA
Today, he said, “If I am guilty of
harassment, then every
employee who stole a pencil is
guilty of embezzlement.”
But the truth is that
employers — who are putting
their reputations and finances
on the line in going public at all
— are very unlikely to rush to
judgment against those accused
of harassment. Far more often,
they are cautious to a fault, even
in this new atmosphere.
There may be cases in which
the punishment hasn’t fit the
crime. Media companies,
particularly, want to appear
squeaky clean themselves as
they continue to scrutinize
others.
But I’ve never heard anyone
suggest that all offenses are
equal — that a bawdy limerick is
the same as a forced kiss, or that
groping is equal to rape. And no
one is proposing that all
repercussions be the same.
Those who shout about
fairness to the accused should
stop to consider what they don’t
know — including how difficult
it is for victims to complain
about a prominent person. (The
young subordinate of a Hillary
Clinton adviser could surely
testify.)
As Martin told me: “Given all
we’ve learned, it’s willfully blind
to assert that the conclusion
should be ‘we’re taking sexual
harassment too seriously.’ ”
What journalism has revealed
over the past few months —
clearly and undeniably — is that
workplace sexual harassment
was hidden for years, that
harassers largely have been
protected, and that those who
complain have been the ones to
be punished.
Witch hunt? I’d call it the
rough beginnings of justice.

BOOK WORLD
A deliciously dark tale of paranoia and consumerism run amok in San Francisco
BY
D ENNIS D RABELLE
Jonathan Moore sets his new
thriller in the near future, when
San Francisco has become a
hellhole of rampant street
crime and consumerism run
amok. For the populace, life is
an endless round of compulsive
and needless purchases, and
the desperately covetous feed
their habit by stealing. What’s
all the rage this week will be
passe next week, replaced by a
frenzy for something equally
gaudy. Stores are redoubts to be
stormed for the latest trinket —
early in the action, a fragrance
called Black Aria sets off a
gotta-have-it riot.
Almost any service you can
think of has been privatized or
commercialized, and one cynic
predicts — only half-jokingly —
that it won’t be long before
urinals get “corporate sponsors.”
Among the few civic entities left
untouched is the police force. Or
so it seems.
Walking
these meanerthan-ever
streets is Ross
Carver, a veteran police inspector
who
does his work
skillfully and
conscientiously. One night,

porting to a
304 pp. $24
mansion near
Coit
Tower;
there, Carver is warned, he will
find a dead man who “looks like
he got cooked.” Through Carver’s
eyes we catch a more vivid
glimpse of the victim: “He looked
like gray moss.”
Carver and Jenner are soon
joined by FBI agents “dressed to
weather a night on Venus” and by
members of a decontamination
unit, who order the partners to
undergo an immediate cleansing
in a truck parked outside. The
process includes drinking a glass
of foul-tasting liquid and taking
a hit from a medic with a “jet
injector inoculation gun.”
Turn the page and you find
Carver lying in his own bed,
being read to by a vaguely familiar woman. This turns out to be
Mia, his across-the-hall neighbor, who says she watched a
uniformed crew carry him inside
three days earlier. Of that journey or the grisly death scene near
Coit Tower, Carver remembers
nothing.
The above is only the prelude
to a grim and gripping tale of
well-earned paranoia. One
source of Carver’s burgeoning
mistrust is Mia herself. She has
some strange habits, such as
stripping the label off every
bottle of wine in her apartment,
rarely going out for any reason,
and keeping such close tabs on
Carver’s comings and goings
that she often opens her door
while he is raising his hand to
knock. But she proves a big help
as he tries to retrieve the missing hours of his life, and he
would love to trust her — if only
she didn’t seem too good to
be true.
Moore blends his story’s
futuristic elements with more
traditional tricks of the genre.
Carver knows how to pick an
old-fashioned lock and seems to
have studied Popeye Doyle’s
moves
in
“The
French
Connection” — especially the
last-second dash through the
closing doors of a subway car.
The talents that have made
Carver and his partner “the
longest-lasting pair of inspectors
working homicide” would have
served gumshoes of the 1930s
equally well: Carver “could get
up after a beating, and Jenner
was usually smart enough to
avoid whatever got thrown his
way.” And for all its high-tech
poisons and gadgets, this is a
novel with ample kneecapping.
Moore, an attorney, uses his
tight-lipped prose to fine effect:
Carver sums up that knockout
liquid he drank as “epilepsy in a
cup” and notices “the riverine
fissure marks” in a victim’s skull.
The author also takes advantage
of San Francisco geography, put-
ting to creepy use such familiar
landmarks as Golden Gate Park,
the Legion of Honor and the
Fairmont Hotel.
The book’s tone is Chandleresque, the conspiracy worrying
Carver and Jenner expands to
Pynchonean proportions, and
the physical ick they encounter
might have oozed out of a
Cronenberg movie. But on the
whole, I’ll wager, “The Night
Market” and its predecessors,
“The Poison Artist” and “The
Dark Room,” are like nothing
you’ve ever read. In his acknowledgments, Moore sums up the
novels as “a three-panel painting
of San Francisco.” As done, he
might have added, by Hieronymus Bosch.

GRAMMYS FROM C1
At least until Mars swooped in
and began hoarding hardware. In
addition to winning best R&B
performance, best R&B song and
best R&B album, Mars eventually
swept the top three categories,
winning song of the year for
“That’s What I Like,” record of the
year for “24K Magic” and album of
the year. “I’ve been knowing these
guys for over a decade,” Mars said
from the dais, surrounded by his
collaborators as he accepted the
Grammy for song of the year. “All
the music business’s horror stories you’ve seen in the movies,
we’ve been through all of them.”
There were other trophies to go
around. In an especially competitive slate of nominees, poised pop
singer Alessia Cara topped Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels
and SZA for best new artist. Nashville sensation Chris Stapleton
won best country album for his
handsome “From a Room: Vol. 1.”
And it was a bittersweet night
for ascending Washington-area
artists. Rappers GoldLink and
Shy Glizzy, along with singer
Brent Faiyaz, earned a nomination for best rap/sung perform-
ance for their spectacular sleeper
hit “Crew,” but that trophy was
snapped up by Lamar and his
duet partner, Rihanna, for “Loyalty.” And “1-800-273-8255,” a chartscaling single about suicide prevention from Montgomery County native Logic, lost song of the
year, of course, to Mars.
But that didn’t stop Logic from
presenting himself as one of the
evening’s standouts. After performing “1-800-273-8255” with
Cara and Khalid, Logic clutched
his microphone and spoke out
about the tensions coursing
through this American moment.
“Black is beautiful, hate is ugly.
Women are as precious as they are
stronger than any man I have ever
met,” he declared, encouraging
listeners to stand up for the rights
of others. “On behalf of those who
fight for equality in a world that is
not equal, not just and not ready
for the change we are here to
bring, I say unto you: Bring us
your tired, your poor and any
immigrant who seeks refuge, for
together, we can build not just a
better country, but a world that is
destined to be united.”
Logic was one of many artists
who came to this year’s Grammys
— hosted in New York after 15
years in Los Angeles — to make a
statement. And while some expressed their solidarity with the
burgeoning #MeToo movement
Sunday night by attaching white
roses to their formalwear, Kesha
did it with a performance of
“Praying,” a surging power ballad
about recovering from the alleged
abuses the pop singer has suffered in the music industry. With
backup by Michaels, Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day
and others, the song ended with
some big notes, and then a big
group hug.
This was a commanding moment, no doubt — but is the music
industry truly committed to equal
representation for women? According to a recent report in the
New York Times, “of the 899 individuals who have been nominated
for the last six Grammy ceremonies, 90.7 percent were men and
9.3 percent were women.”
There were other messages and
memorials. Country singers Eric
Church, Maren Morris and the
Brothers Osborne offered a solemn rendition of Eric Clapton’s
“Tears in Heaven” as a tribute to
those killed in October’s mass

shooting in Las Vegas, as well as
the victims of last summer’s Manchester Arena bombing. Later, Cabello spoke about the importance
of protecting young immigrants
before introducing a U2 performance in the vicinity of the Statue of
Liberty, piped in via satellite. The
comedian James Corden, hosting
for the second consecutive year,
largely stayed out of the way.
One important voice we didn’t
get to hear a sound from: Lorde.
The 21-year-old New Zealand pop
phenom was this year’s lone female nominee for album of the
year, but according to a report
from Variety, she declined to perform Sunday night after Grammy
producers asked her to appear in
a tribute to the late Tom Petty
rather than sing a tune of her own.
Other album of the year nominees
— Childish Gambino, Lamar and
Mars — were given their own slots
in the show.
Had Lorde decided to bail on
the whole thing outright, she
would have joined a growing cast
of AWOL A-listers, including Justin Bieber, whose cameo verse on
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s
“Despacito” earned him nominations for record and song of the
year, as well as Drake, who didn’t
even bother to submit music from
his 2017 bestseller “More Life” for
Grammy consideration.
As ever at the Grammys, the
respect — and lack thereof —
flows both ways.

THEATER REVIEW
‘Garden’ blooms with
contradictions at Ford’s
BY
N ELSON P RESSLEY
The orgy of history now playing at Ford’s Theatre finds Thomas Jefferson squirming in a British play about American freedom, in the house where the
nation’s most notorious assassin
shot Abraham Lincoln over slavery. We know that neither the
Declaration of Independence nor
the Constitution fully realized
the
all-men-are-created-equal
principles that made Jefferson a
rock star to acolytes fired up by
his rhetoric. But it’s still something to see him waffling with his
human property in the new historical drama “Jefferson’s Garden.”
That fascination is partly due
to Michael Halling’s subtle, intriguingly contradictory performance as Jefferson. Halling,
tall and regal, is convincing as a
public intellectual with a private
temper. He’s also the most plausibly human figure in a show that
in key areas lacks the breath of
life.
“Jefferson’s Garden” is by Timberlake Wertenbaker, one of Britain’s top dramatists, and this U.S.
premiere is part of Washington’s
Women’s Voices Theater Festival.
It’s an ensemble-driven epic with
nine actors flowing in and out of
roles, starting with immigrants
braving the sea and founding a
peaceful Quaker colony in Mary-
THEATER REVIEW
At Arena, a
drama with
legal lessons
BY
P ETER M ARKS
If the theater gave out awards
for public service, this year’s prize
would already be decided. The
winner is “Sovereignty,” Mary
Kathryn Nagle’s placid, teachable-moment brand of drama
about the U.S. government’s contentious, centuries-long relationship with Indian tribal rights.
Offering up almost as much
legal grounding as a Harvard
Law School case study, “Sovereignty” would also make an apt
entry on any American studies
syllabus. Now, the topic happens
to be an interesting one to me —
and dare I say it is an aspect of
American history that you should
know more about, too. So I was
willing to forgive some of the
land.
A short generation later,
Christian, the son of a shoemaker, has revolution fever. What
does he want? Freedom. When
does he want it? Now.
“There are many ways to become intoxicated,” a community
elder intones of Christian’s political passion, and one of Wertenbaker’s most pertinent themes is
the power of rhetoric. Speeches
get people riled up in the moment, but writing forges laws
that last forever. (Notably,
Wednesday’s opening-night audience at Ford’s included Capitol
Hill
lawmakers.)
Halling’s
moody Jefferson says he would
rather write than orate like the
rabble-rousing Patrick Henry.
The play announces itself as
historical fiction right away, with
actors explaining the setup, commenting on the fly and grabbing
costumes off racks. It’s Christian’s story, with two complications — his relationship with the
paradoxical Jefferson and his
infatuation with a slave named
Susannah.
That romance aims to be a
comparatively woke mirror of
the Jefferson’s relationship
with Sally Hemings, but this is
where the story remains theoretical rather than getting the
audience emotionally involved.
It’s as if Wertenbaker and director Nataki Garrett don’t entire-
emphatically pedagogical aspirations of this world premiere production, conjured with pristine
conscientiousness by director
Molly Smith in Arena Stage’s
Kreeger Theater.
Imagining the Kreeger as a
classroom is indeed the surest
path to a meaningful takeaway
from this evening. “Sovereignty”
fits into a variety of dramaturgy
that Smith has sought to make an
Arena specialty: an initiative she
calls “power plays,” a 10-year
program to put original pieces of
public-affairs theater on the company’s stages. In the vein of the
previous entries — Lawrence
Wright’s “Camp David,” John
Strand’s “The Originalist” and
Jacqueline E. Lawton’s “Intelligence” — Nagle’s work zeros in on
a facet of the exercise of federal
power, in a way that reveals its
effect on the governed, or on the
people wielding the power.
This is a worthwhile pursuit
for a renowned company in the
nation’s capital. Still, like the
prior power plays, “Sovereignty”
is more successful as an intellectual concept than heart-racing
historical drama. Nagle’s characters, who are doled out attributes
rather than imbued with person-

CAROL ROSEGG
Christopher Dinolfo’s Christian, left, and Michael Halling’s Thomas Jefferson in “Jefferson’s Garden.”
ly take Christian seriously,
while actor Christopher Dinolfo takes him too seriously.
The one-note earnestness of
Dinolfo’s liberty-for-everyone
Christian lacks dimension, as
does the tragic nobility of Felicia Curry’s Susannah.
In fact, the show hasn’t made
up its mind about when to probe
its characters and when to send
ality, spend a lot of time explaining themselves, at the expense of
the more satisfying kind of revelation that allows an audience to
discover on its own who they are.
As a result, the dramatic potential in exploring this original and
provocative subject matter is not
fully realized.
And yet, I have to say the just
over two hours in the Kreeger
with “Sovereignty” did not feel
misspent. The experience on this
occasion had less to do with
aesthetics than edification. How
often do we get a play at a major
theater, with Native American
actors, by a Native American
playwright? But whether these
elements are enough to fulfill
your requirements for an evening
of theater, I leave to you.
As the title suggests, the play
looks at the strictures and inequities the United States has imposed and perpetuated for Native
American self-government. In
this case, the focus is Nagle’s own
Cherokee Nation, one of the
tribes forced in the 19th century
off its ancestral homeland in the
Southeast and marched to territory in the Southwest, later to
become the state of Oklahoma. “Sovereignty” travels back
them up. The increasingly arch
tone of the second act, filled with
nattering Virginian women and
the iron force of segregationists,
behaves more and more like the
sharp lampoon of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’s “An Octoroon,” directed by Garrett at Woolly Mammoth in 2016. Three “Octoroon”
actors are in this show, and
costume designer Ivania Stack’s

and forth between the 1830s and
the “near future,” the linkage
being the violent rivalry of two
powerful Cherokee clans, the
Rosses and the Ridges, and a
sequence of Supreme Court bat-
half-formed hoop skirts are back,
too.
It’s not a clean fit. The American satire rattled with rage,
while this British inquiry seems
to want a more reserved, realistic
analysis.
What gets you leaning in is
Wertenbaker’s whirlpool of verbiage, the lofty defining of terms
and the pragmatic refining of
tles going back two centuries.
Those cases involve challenges to
a tribe’s rights to enforce laws on
its lands, and more specifically,
the right to prosecute non-Indians for crimes committed within
Indian-governed territory.
It’s not until the start of Act 2,
unfortunately, that the modernday story of Sarah Polson (Kyla
Garcia), a Yale-trained Cherokee
lawyer who has come home to
work for the tribe, gains some
emotional traction. Her hotheaded, controlling white fiance, Ben
(an excellent Joseph Carlson)
commits an act of sexual violence
that sets in motion still another
constitutional case, and this is
where “Sovereignty” starts to
find its footing. Before this, the
play lingers far too long in the
19th-century story of the Cherokee leaders, divided over whether
to consent to efforts spearheaded
by President Andrew Jackson
(Carlson, again) to confiscate
Cherokee land in Georgia and
compel the tribe to relocate West.
Several good actors double,
triple or even quadruple in roles
— including Jake Waid, Andrew
Roa, Todd Scofield, Kalani Queypo, Dorea Schmidt, Michael
Glenn and Jake Hart. Scofield
practices. It’s easy to holler about
liberty, but the show puts matters to the test with an unsettlingly violent end of the first act.
You can also feel the consequences of Jefferson’s mixed-message
America beginning to swell by
the end of the play.
Garrett’s ensemble is a smooth
unit that includes stalwart D.C.
actors Christopher Bloch, Kimberly Gilbert, Thomas Keegan
and Maggie Wilder. Michael Kevin Darnall emerges vividly as
James Hemings, Jefferson’s liberty-minded servant — he’s like a
tuning fork, reverberating with
ambition but held in place by his
station — while Kathryn Tkel
doubles as a youthful Sally Hemings and then the white Virginian who casts a seductive
Southern eye Christian’s way.
The spare staging gets plenty
of atmosphere from Laura Mroczkowski’s careful lighting design,
yet it feels like a show with holes
in its fabric. Wertenbaker has
woven a sizable tapestry, and it
gains aura by being framed at
Ford’s. The history is terribly
alive, but the fiction doesn’t
always connect.

makes the most of one turn in
particular, as a white bartender
in an Indian casino who gets
perhaps the evening’s most impassioned declaration about
Cherokee indefatigability. Garcia
struggles a bit under the weight
of the play’s most difficult assignment, conveying Sarah’s vulnerability while at the same time
reciting for us reams of legal
precedent. Waid, meanwhile,
succeeds noteworthily as Sarah’s
patient superior in the Cherokee
attorney general’s office.
Linda Cho’s costumes and Ken

CLASSIC PEANUTS
ow good a speller are
you?” a club player
asked me.
“Fair.”
“I’m hopeless,” he said.
“Yesterday I misspelled a
word so badly that my spellchecker responded with
‘I got nothing.’”
Every player makes errors,
but some are worse than others. Today’s North-South got
RHYMES WITH ORANGE
to four hearts when South
overbid. West correctly led a
trump, placing dummy with
heart support but limited
high-card strength. Dummy
won with the 10 and led a
spade ... and East grabbed
his ace.
Declarer won the next
trump, cashed the king of
spades and ruffed a spade.
When West’s queen fell,
LIO
South led a diamond to his
ace, drew trumps, and took
the jack and his last spade.
He lost a diamond and a club
but made game.
East’s defense was poor;
East helped declarer set up
his spades. If East ducks the
first spade, he won’t lose his
ace. South still makes four
hearts by putting up his king,
but if he finesses with the
jack, West wins and leads
HAGAR THE HORRIBLE
a second trump, and the
defense ends with five tricks.

Your partner opens one

and you try 2NT. (Your three

FRANCESCO MARCIULIANO & MIKE MANLEY
CANDORVILLE
DARRIN BELL
This year you are able
to act on wonderful
ideas. Just make sure
that the concepts you
decide to pioneer will work
well for you without needing
to take big risks. Try to avoid
linking up with someone who
encourages wild spending. If
you are single, take your time
getting to know a person well.
You will discover that you have
many choices, and you’ll want
to make the right choice. If you
are attached, you will be able
to establish a more upbeat
life with your sweetie. The two
of you will want to pursue a
mutual long-term goal. Cancer
might be a bit too nurturing.
ARIES
(MARCH 21-APRIL 19).
Listen carefully to news. A
power play could backfire
without any positive results.
Opportunities become more
positive as you distance
yourself from the immediate
struggle. One-on-one relating
draws the support of a friend.
TAURUS
(APRIL 20-MAY 20).
Reach out to associates and
friends who care a lot about
you. These people add to the
quality of your life with their
suggestions and support.
Someone might push to have
you think along the same lines
that he or she does, but it is
unlikely to work.
GARFIELD
JIM DAVIS
GEMINI
(MAY 21-JUNE 20).
You can create more of what
WEINGARTENS & CLARK you want. Observe a tendency
to become too self-involved to
appreciate a suggestion or two
that might bring better results
than what you are presently
seeing. Tackle a project with
enthusiasm.
BARNEY AND CLYDE
CANCER
(JUNE 21-JULY 22).
You are determined to create
much more of what you want.
Be careful, as you might
find yourself on a collision
course. Even though you feel
unstoppable, you could hit a
problem.

LEO
(JULY 23-AUG. 22).
Understand that just because
timing isn’t on your side, it
doesn’t mean you should stop
pursuing a goal. You will learn
why you are put on hold soon
enough. Take a step back
and observe more. A family
member helps you relax in the
present situation.
VIRGO
(AUG. 23-SEPT. 22).
You could be drawn into a
private conversation by an
associate. You will be very
content with what is being
said. You might be more
vested in what is going on
than others realize.
LIBRA
(SEPT. 23-OCT. 22).
Others listen to your words
more carefully than you
realize. You might keep stating
your thoughts differently, as
you’ll want to make sure you
are heard. Encourage others to
come forward and share their
feelings.
NON SEQUITUR
WILEY
BABY BLUES
RICK KIRKMAN & JERRY SCOTT
SCORPIO
(OCT. 23-NOV. 21).
You might opt to blaze a new
trail. Others watch you and
wonder if that same path could
make a difference in their
lives as well. Ignore any harsh
comments you hear. Curb a
tendency to feel as if you are
right and let everyone know.
SAGITTARIUS
(NOV. 22-DEC. 21).
Deal with a partner directly.
How you understand what is
being shared is a lot different
from how others interpret what
they have heard. Use caution
with a money deal.

CAPRICORN
(DEC. 22-JAN. 19).
You might want to try a
new approach or be more
responsive to other points of
view. Give up trying to make
your view the right one for
everyone.
AQUARIUS
(JAN. 20-FEB. 18).
You might want to be more
grounded than you have been
in the recent past. How you
deal with a changing situation
involving a partnership
could have an effect on your
financial situation.
PISCES

hat’s with the photos of bighorn
sheep that seem to
say “cheese”?
Some
critters
caught by motion-detecting wildlife cameras look as though they
are striking a pose. But it’s not just
show business. As these devices
get ever smaller, cheaper and
more reliable, scientists across
the United States are using them
to track hard-to-find creatures
like never before.
“There’s no doubt — it is an
incredible tool to acquire data on
wildlife,” said Grant Harris, a U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service wildlife
biologist based in Albuquerque,
New Mexico.
Remote cameras have photographed a wide variety of wildlife,
including small desert cats called
ocelots and snow-loving lynx high
in the Northern Rockies.
Harris mentioned photos of
javelinas (pronounced ha-vehLEEN-uhs), which are piglike desert mammals, and coatimundi,
members of the raccoon family,
taken farther north recently. That
could mean global warming is
expanding their range, he said.
Other scientists who are using
remote cameras include researchers with the Wyoming Migration
Initiative, who use global positioning to map the movements of
elk, mule deer and antelope in
and around Yellowstone National
Park. They have only so many
collars available to track animals,
PHOTOS FROM U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Motion-detecting cameras
are getting smaller, cheaper
and more reliable, and they
are contributing serious
science — as well as funny
photos, all from America’s
national parks.
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP:
In Nevada, a golden eagle
confronts a desert bighorn
sheep. In Florida, a black
bear gets up close and
personal. In Arizona, a
bighorn sheep seems to mug
for the camera. On the
Channel Islands, off the
coast of Southern
California, an elephant seal
stretches near the ocean.
meaning there’s a limit to the
Global Positioning System data
they can gather, said Matthew
Kauffman, a University of Wyoming associate professor and initiative director.
“You see one animal migrating,
you don’t know if it’s migrating by
itself, if it’s migrating with a calf,
or if it’s migrating with 40 other
animals,” Kauffman said.
Remote cameras — which can
be left in the backcountry for
days, weeks, even months — help
fill in the blanks by showing how
many animals are on the move
over a given period, he said.
Where to put them requires careful thought. Researchers want
good images but also good data
about the population, Harris said.
Remote video can also reveal
details about animal behavior, including the mewling sounds of
migrating mule deer. And livestreaming cameras — such as for
bison in Saskatchewan, Canada,
and the underwater kelp forest off
California’s Channel Islands —
are popular with nature lovers.
As with all human intrusion
into nature, remote cameras have
downsides. Animals such as wolverines and bears have been
known to attack them, though
whether out of curiosity or aggression is hard to say.
Also, remote cameras have become popular tools to help hunters scout for game, which has led
to a debate over whether that is
fair. Then there’s the idea about
going into nature to get away
from the trappings of the digital
age.
But to answer that original
question: Bighorn sheep that look
like they’re smiling probably
aren’t saying “cheese,” but curling
back their upper lip to sniff scents.
Scientists call it a flehmen (FLAYmen) response, Harris said.
But would they do it if a person
showed up with a camera? It’s
possible, but they might be too
sheepish.

SATURDAY’S LA TIMES SOLUTION
Hi, Carolyn: I’m
absolutely
devastated over a
recent fight with
my best friend of
more than a
decade. She is white, and I am
not. [A white nationalist rally]
upset both of us but landed
much harder with me. She was
sympathetic at first, but then the
conversation turned to race and
responsibility. She explained that
she thought all she could do was
to be a fair person and raise her
children well. I told her I never
expect anyone to go to rallies or
protests, but I do think people
need to speak up when we see or
hear bigotry in our day-to-day
lives, even if it is uncomfortable
to do so.
She felt like I was attacking
her and got extremely upset.
(She often reacts angrily to
anything she perceives as
criticism.) I tried to explain that I
didn’t think she had done
anything wrong, but that we all
have an obligation to be more
vigilant given the way the
country is going. She was
dismissive and upset, and said
she’d be happy to listen if I
wanted to vent but that she
wasn’t interested in talking
Carolyn
Hax
about this in any depth with me.
She more or less hung up on me
after a few minutes.
We’ve talked since about
mundane things, but this is
clearly lingering. I don’t know
what to do. Maybe I should have
just avoided the subject. On the
other hand, I hate the idea that I
can’t talk to my closest friend
about something troubling me so
deeply.
— David
David: It’s not a loss in the
traditional sense where someone
dies or ends the friendship, but
it’s still shocking when you find
out a loved one’s shortcomings —
even those you’ve accepted as
part of the beloved package that
is your best friend — are bigger
than her ability to sympathize
with or show friendship toward
you.
So I suggest you approach this
as grieving. That means you
don’t have to “do” anything
about it just yet, besides give
yourself time to let your
thoughts and feelings settle.
Once they do and you feel
ready to face the underlying
issue that stirred them up, then
you figure out how this new
information about her affects the
friendship as a whole. Is there a
way you’ve handled her
defensiveness in the past that
could serve you here? Does she
ever walk back her defensiveness
later and accept new
information?
If she stays behind her wall, is
your interest in remaining
friends strong enough for you to
keep making your half of the
effort?
Re: Friend: There’s nothing
more discouraging to an ally
than hearing that you’re not a
good enough ally. Push people
hard enough, and they turn all
anti-SJW (social justice warrior)
out of sheer pique. I’m a minority
as well, and over the years I have
become very offended when
people don’t react with the same
outrage I do to discrimination.
But now that I’m older, I also can
admit I’ve had several instances
where I could have spoken up
and didn’t, because it just felt
like too much to take on. So, I
guess what I’m recommending is
at least exploring whether
empathy is warranted.
— Ally
Ally: Nice perspective. And when
is empathy not warranted?

Oubre now
has game
to match
the swagger
Old news?
Ovechkin
remains
a virtuoso.
Hard work helps forward
gain respect around NBA
His sustained success
wows all-star peers
BY
C ANDACE B UCKNER
BY
tampa — Wherever Alex Ovechkin went during the NHL’s allstar weekend, outside of the time
he spent dancing around the ice
with a puck on his stick, he kept
his iPhone at the ready.
The Washington Capitals’ star
left winger took panned shots of
the Metropolitan Division allstars’ locker room. He fixed his
camera on the Amalie Arena
crowd’s ovation as he was introduced before the skills competition Saturday night. He filmed
everything as if this were all
something he had never done
before, as if each moment were
capable of producing a memory
he wouldn’t want to forget.
The NHL, from the fans to his
fellow stars, is following the
13th season of Ovechkin’s career
with a similar level of attention.
This was Ovechkin’s seventh AllStar Game, and because he received more votes than any other
Metropolitan Division player, he
was the captain of that team
during the three-on-three tournament Sunday. That accomplishment rests on a long list of them
for the 32-year-old this season.
Long before Kelly Oubre Jr.
came to the Washington Wizards,
he was a scrawny kid who believed
he belonged on the same court
with NBA players. Melvin Hunt,
now an assistant coach with the
Dallas Mavericks, first met him at
a Nike camp in Las Vegas. Every
high school player in attendance
was elite and heading to some
dynastic Division I college program, but Oubre stood out: the
unfortunate blond dye job that
made his curly hair look orange,
the flashy sunglasses he chose to
wear and that swagger. No one
oozed more than Oubre, even as
he matched up with NBA players.
“I was like, ‘This kid isn’t scared
at all,’ ” Hunt said. “He looked
good out there.”
Though the confident young
player couldn’t shoot, he could
make plays. When Oubre showed
up at the Kevin Durant Skills
Academy in Washington, Hunt
noticed another side. Though
brimming with self-assurance,
Oubre showed the vulnerability
beyond the vanity: staying after
the camp, seeking advice and getting extra shots up.

Chris Kinney still hates cold

“In college, it was like pulling
teeth to get me to lift,” said Kinney, 29, a three-time Big East
track and field champion who
still holds the Hoyas’ record in the
60-meter and 110-meter hurdles.
“My first year doing bobsled, my
lifting was awful. Now I’ve kind of

The Xfinity Center crowd began to chant “overrated!” as
Maryland gained a comfortable
lead over No. 6 Michigan State in
the first half Sunday, the first
opportunity Terrapins fans had
to do so during this downtrodden
season. Most everyone in the
building knew what was at stake.
After losing four of their previous six and in danger of missing
the NCAA tournament for the
first time in four seasons, the
Terrapins were confronted with
one of their last chances for a
résumé-building win, and they
were playing in front of a sellout
crowd for the first time all season.
Free T-shirts were given out. Program legends Gary Williams and
Greivis Vasquez showed up. A
flash mob was conducted. For the
first time in months, Maryland
basketball seemed electric again.
But Michigan State is not overrated — far from it — and the
Spartans made the Terrapins fans
eat their words in a 74-68 win.

After early failure, Belichick grew into an NFL coaching titan
BY
K ENT B ABB
A few weeks before Bill Belichick’s first game
as a head coach in the summer of 1991, the boss
wanted to see him. Art Modell, the owner of the
Cleveland Browns, summoned Belichick and
Ernie Accorsi, the team’s executive vice president, to his office. Nothing dire, Accorsi would
remember — just some trivial issue Modell
wanted to discuss.
Shortly after the meeting began, Modell’s
phone rang, and he answered it. Belichick
began to stir. He squirmed and nervously fiddled with his notebook. Minutes passed. Even-

tually he decided enough was enough, and
Belichick closed his notebook, told Accorsi to
alert him when the call finally ended and just
left.
“If somebody is wasting his time, he has no
use for it,” said Rick Venturi, a former Browns
assistant coach, and indeed that story was
timeless Belichick: impatient, hyper-efficient,
unwilling to wait on anyone — even his boss.

are on your own — in short, I

— because I procured an
exclusive interview with New
England Patriots Coach Bill
Belichick.
Belichick’s news conferences
are legendary, for their
sometimes brief, sometimes
irritable answers. But one-onone, sans hoodie and hubris, he
can be engaging, enthralling,
entertaining — and expansive.
We chatted on an undisclosed
sofa in an undisclosed city on an
undisclosed date. Some
questions and answers have been
edited for space purposes:
Couch Slouch: How much
does Tom Brady’s status, with
stitches still in his throwing
Couch

hand, complicate the planning
process?
Bill Belichick: I don’t know.
CS: Has the condition of
Brady’s hand improved from, say,
a week ago?
BB: We gave out the injury
report yesterday. We’ll update it
today.
CS: What are your
expectations in regard to Rob
Gronkowski?
BB: That’s what we’re
thinking.
CS: At this point, realistically,
how much can you get out of
Gronk?
BB: You bring players onto the
team for what they can do.
CS: Might Brady and Gronk
both be a game-time decision?
BB: Today is Friday.
CS: Any regrets about trading
away Jimmy Garoppolo?
BB: I’m not a scientist.
CS: Did the three-day
government shutdown affect
your preparation at all?
BB: Which government?
CS: Would you consider
Robert Kraft a friend?
BB: Everybody’s different.
CS: Without getting into
schematics and strategy, what
distinguishes your special
teams?
BB: They’re special.
CS: But that strange onside
kick against the Dolphins in
Week 14 — what happened there?
BB: They recovered it.
CS: There are a lot more
shouts and murmurs out there
from the days you first started
coaching. What’s your best tack
with social media?
BB: SnapFace, InstaChat and
all that, I don’t really get those.
CS: When’s the last time you
spoke with Donald Trump?
BB: I’m trying to coach a
football team.
CS: Are you at all concerned
with Tom Brady’s relationship
with Alex Guerrero?
BB: The team is excited to
play.
CS: You’re probably going to
lose both of your coordinators to
head coaching jobs next season.
Any thoughts on their ability to
focus this week?
BB: I’d like to go out and have
a good practice today.
CS: To be truthful, your
coaching tree has not been all
that fruitful. Any thoughts?
BB: Any questions about the
game?
CS: The Eagles are great at
disguising their defenses. How
do you prep for that?
BB: Whatever team you have,
that’s the team you have.
CS: Any pregame routine
you’ve learned is best for the
Super Bowl? Does music relax
you?
BB: No one can build you the
bridge on which you, and only
you, must cross the river of life.
CS: Your dime package seems
very effective, but does it disrupt
your base 3-4 mentality
defensively?
BB: We’re going to continue to
get ready for Philadelphia all the
way until game time.
CS: In the offseason, do you
ever allow yourself to sit back
Jagr may leave NHL
after Flames waive him
In what could spell the end of
his illustrious NHL career,
Jaromir Jagr was placed on
waivers by the Calgary Flames.
Two people with direct
knowledge of the move confirmed
it to the Associated Press on the
condition of anonymity Sunday
because the team had not
announced the transaction. The
second-leading scorer in league
history is on regular waivers,
though one person told the AP
that if the 45-year-old Jagr clears,
he will be placed on
unconditional waivers Monday
for the purpose of terminating his
NHL contract so he can return to
Europe to finish the season.
Calgary signed Jagr to a oneyear, $1 million deal with
performance bonuses at the start
of the season, and he made his
Flames debut Oct. 11. Jagr had a
goal and six assists in 22 games
and hasn’t played since Dec. 31
because of what the team called a
lower-body injury. He went on
injured reserve Jan. 14.

Former UFC bantamweight

Rousey told ESPN that “this is

years. This is not a smash-andgrab; this is not a publicity

Two-time world champion and
2016 Olympic gold medalist Kyle
Snyder (Good Counsel High)
became the first U.S. man to win
two Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix gold
medals with a victory at 213

in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.
In the final match of the
tournament, Snyder defeated
Rasul Magomedov of Russia, 4-1,
in the gold medal bout. Snyder
trailed 1-0 after being put on the
shot clock in the first period but
forced a step-out with just a few
seconds left in the period to head
into the break tied at 1. In the
second period, Snyder added a
single leg takedown, then forced a
step-out on the edge to extend the
lead and close out the victory.
It was a rematch of the 2017
Ivan Yarygin finals, won by
Snyder by pin in 5 minutes

Snyder was named the best

EVELYN HOCKSTEIN FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
D.C. United fan Kristian Sookhal signs the final piece of structural steel before it is installed at the new Audi Field.
United, building and rebuilding
BY
S TEVEN G OFF
D.C. United reached a construction
milestone at Audi Field on Friday with
the installation of the last steel beam.
A few hundred fans and staff attended
the ceremony at the bustling Buzzard
Point plot in Southwest Washington,
two diagonal blocks from Nationals
Park.
As the season approaches, here is a
look at the state of both Coach Ben
Olsen’s roster and the preparations for
the stadium’s scheduled opening July
14.
The team
United opened training camp last
week in Washington before moving
operations Sunday to Clearwater, Fla.,
for the first of two visits to the Sunshine State during preseason. The first
stay will culminate with a Feb. 8
friendly against Swedish champion
Malmo at IMG Academy in Bradenton.
Everyone on the preseason roster
has reported to camp, except three
midfielders on U.S. national team
duty: Paul Arriola, Ian Harkes and
Russell Canouse. They are due to join
the squad in the coming days after
almost three weeks of workouts in
Carson, Calif., and Sunday night’s
friendly against Bosnia at StubHub
Center.
Four players seeking to earn contracts are in camp: Brazilian attackers
Rafael Andrade Santos (Virginia Commonwealth) and Afonso Pinheiro (Albany), both MLS fourth-round draft
picks this month; right back Chris
Odoi-Atsem, a 2017 first-round pick
whose option wasn’t exercised after
last season; and right back Sheanon
Williams, an eight-year MLS veteran
who was released by the Vancouver
Whitecaps.
Other trialists are likely to arrive in
camp at various points, but United’s
primary aim is to sign two Latin American players: an attacker and outside
defender. Club officials declined to
identify them. The attacker, they said,
would require targeted allocation
money, which means he is in a salary
range of $500,000 to $1 million.
There are apparently no plans,
however, to sign a true striker at this
time, despite a roster with three frontline candidates who have never scored
more than eight goals in a season. If
Darren Mattocks, Patrick Mullins or
Bruno Miranda don’t fill the void,
United would likely readdress the
corps during the summer transfer
window.
The stadium
Eleven months down and five to go
before the inauguration of the 20,000capacity venue, which will replace
RFK Stadium as United’s home after
22 seasons. United will play its first
two home games at alternate locations.
United officials say construction is
on schedule and, even in the case of
snow, weather delays have been built
into the timetable. “A day here and a
day there of snow, it’s no problem,”
said Tom Hunt, United’s president of
business operations. “If there’s a
‘snowmageddon,’ you just don’t know.”
United would like to stage a soft
opening with limited attendance for a
sporting event of some sort, but the
timeline to complete the project and
receive the certificate of occupancy
from the city government is probably
too tight, club officials said. (The first
event at Nationals Park was a George
Washington University baseball
game, eight days before the 2008
grand opening.)
Hunt said the team has sold close to
9,000 full season tickets — about 7,000
on the east and west sides and around
2,000 in the supporters’ group sections on the north end. Partial plans
are not yet available. United would
cap season tickets at 12,500. Singlegame seats will not go on sale until
May.
With no parking around Audi Field,
ticket holders will need to use lots
near Nationals Park or take Metro. On
Friday, a brisk walk to the new digs
from Navy Yard station along busy
South Capitol Street took 12 minutes
— about five minutes longer than the
stroll to RFK from the Stadium-Armory station.

Woods shows flashes of his past, offering hope for future
BY
C HUCK C ULPEPPER
san diego — The global curiosity on the subject of Tiger Woods
the golfer, which had slid into a
dormancy smothered by his serial surgeries, his quashed restarts
and his half-creaking gait, might
need to reawaken just about now.
As Woods moves on from here to
Riviera in Los Angeles beginning
Feb. 15, the chart graph on the
curiosity looks like it ought to
nudge upward.
That impression, derived from
his four rounds toward his 3-under-par 285 and his tie for 23rd at
Torrey Pines in the Farmers Insurance Open atop the cliffs here,
owed to how he looked and to
how he spoke.
He looked like one of those
42-year-olds whose friends might
comment about his apparently
retreating age, as when Hall of
Fame golfer and CBS commentator Nick Faldo said, “He looks
darned good,” and when leading
golf intellectual Doug Ferguson
of the Associated Press tweeted,
“Tiger is a year older and looks
five years younger than last year.”
He spoke not merely in the
ludicrous optimism golfers require to steel their minds against
their merciless sport but in vivid
language about life with two
vertebrae newly fused (since last
spring). Explaining how his short
game could have turned up here
as superior to his long game, he
said Saturday: “No, I don’t have
burning pain down my leg. My
leg’s not shaking. My foot’s working. Actually when I tell it to
walk, it can actually walk.
“I was struggling, and it was
not fun. People don’t realize, the
shots that hurt the most were
putts and the chips because I was
the most bent over. The shots I
love to hit were the drivers; I was
the least bent over. You would
think that would be the most
speed, but that was the least
painful of all my shots that I hit.
Bunker shots were off-the-charts
painful, but I just hated hitting
little short shots because it just
hurt. Give me a driver any day a
year ago and I felt so much
better.”
He even trickled upward into
something that looked like contention.
As he began a final-round 72
on Sunday that would become his
fourth round at par or better, he
did so on the back nine at
8:15 a.m., in the hours generally
tranquil around a tournament
Sunday. It was well before the
leaders would go out in what
Woods’s return turned into a
two-pronged event, one in which
Jason Day, Alex Noren and Ryan
Palmer reached a playoff, which
Day and Noren will complete
Monday morning after darkness
halted play. Woods, a 14-time
major winner and 79-time PGA
Tour event winner, even brought
along his old brain, daring per
usual to hope for a title everyone
else presumed impossible. As he
said later, “I really wanted to

shoot
something
probably
around 65. I thought that might
be a playoff number, but . . .”
Yet while attracting his customary droves of spectators, he
missed out on a birdie on No. 13,
his fourth hole, when a supportive onlooker hollered amid
Woods’s putting stroke. Yet he
closed his opening nine with
birdie-bogey-birdie-bogey-birdie, standing at 4 under par for the
tournament, and you could feel
excitement sweep the joint.
When he smashed his drives
up the fairways on Nos. 1 and 2,
birdieing No. 2, he not only was
tied for 20th place and looked
like he might treat the crowds to
something goose-bumpy while
the wind had hastened to send
the flagsticks doubling over.
Woods also looked like he might
have sorted out his wayward tee
tendencies.
He had not. “I can feel some of

the things I’m doing wrong in my
swing,” he said later. By the time
he had finished with five pars
and two bogeys, he had hit only
three fairways, six for the weekend and 17 for the tournament, an
area on which he will toil in the
coming weeks. He wants to master something that got lost, which
he described as “just my feel of
hitting the ball the right number.”
“That’s what I think is the key
thing,” Faldo said. “Let’s see when

OUBRE FROM D1
Radio: WFED (1500 AM)
“Kelly kept coming around,”
Hunt said. “I could see in his face.
He wasn’t sure. He thought he was
good, but he wasn’t arrogant or
cocky. . . . He had the cool daddy
glasses. You could tell he had some
confidence, but he wasn’t sure.”
Over the years, Oubre’s swag
has soared — but so has his game.
In his third NBA season, Oubre
has played in all 49 games for the
Wizards and already has surpassed his scoring total from last
year. While Oubre, who is averaging career highs across the board,
is carrying added responsibility as
a second-unit spark plug playing
seven more minutes per game and
averaging nearly six points more
than last season, his greatest gain
has come from beyond the arc.
Over his past 10 games, Oubre has
averaged 5.3 three-point attempts
and is knocking them down with
45.3 percent accuracy.
A workout addict, Oubre sees
this season as a continuation of
his drive for improvement.
“My rookie year, the second
year, my third year, I’ve always
tried to get better,” Oubre said. “I
never really switched up my routine and wavered who I was. I feel
like that’s why that consistency is
just now coming to the light.”
The Wizards have noticed Oubre’s development.
“He’s worked on his game,”
Coach Scott Brooks said. “You
want all your players to come back
better, and he’s definitely come
back better this year.”
Around the league, he is also
gaining respect.
“Oubre’s game has taken a
quantum leap in the last several
weeks,” Mavericks Coach Rick
Carlisle said before Dallas faced
Washington last Monday, “and
you could easily project him as a
starter on a lot of teams in this
league.”
While Carlisle only shared
complimentary words, Oubre delights in having a more rugged
reputation. He got suspended in
last year’s playoffs for bulldozing
then-Boston Celtics forward Kelly
Olynyk. This year, he earned an
undercover censor from the
league for wearing a faux fur coat
with not safe for work words
printed on the back. (He later
explained the message was for his
haters.)
When recently asked what he
thinks his standing is around the
league, Oubre didn’t miss a beat.
“Crazy,” he said. “I’m a crazy
individual, but I mean respectfully so. If you look at me and you
don’t really know me, the instances that I’ve been in, in the league,
in the media, they seem kind of
crazy. But at the end of the day, it’s
all for my team. Everything I do is
for my team. I just try to win.
That’s who I am. I’m a crazy [expletive].”
Before the dye jobs and R-rated
chic coats, however, Oubre was
not viewed as a prospect destined
for stardom. He was an afterthought with his Houston middle
school AAU team. The roster featured current NBA players Justise
Winslow and Justin Jackson, as
well as Tony Upchurch, who plays
wide receiver for Texas Southern.
Oubre, a transplant from New
Orleans, was a bystander.
“We were the kids that were on
the end of the bench,” said Stanley
Johnson, who now plays for the
Detroit Pistons. “It was a bunch of
hitters, and we were the odd men
out for some reason.”
Through this growth period,
Oubre and Johnson built a lasting
friendship. Bonded by their time
on the bench, Oubre credited
Johnson for instilling his strong
work ethic.
“He’s actually the first person
who kind of introduced me to
hardcore training,” Oubre said.
“As far as getting into the gyms for
hours and hours and getting better and loving the game.”
The more Oubre worked, the
more his confidence grew. Oubre

NBA ROUNDUP
Westbrook powers OKC
to eighth victory in a row
THUNDER 122,
76ERS 112
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Russell Westbrook scored
37 points, and the host Oklahoma
City Thunder beat the Philadelphia 76ers, 122-112, on Sunday
night for its eighth straight win.
Westbrook was 6 for 20 from
the field in the first half, when he
was knocked to the ground trying
to take a charge as Joel Embiid
threw down a vicious dunk over
him. Westbrook was 8 for 13 in the
second half and finished with
14 assists and nine rebounds.
Paul George scored 31 points for
the Thunder, which swept the season series.
Embiid had 27 points and 10
rebounds for the 76ers, and Ben
Simmons added 22 points.
It was a bittersweet day for the
Thunder. The team announced
that guard Andre Roberson is expected to miss the rest of the
season after having surgery on a
ruptured left patella tendon. Roberson, a second-team all-defense
selection last season, was injured
in Saturday’s victory at Detroit.
CAVALIERS 121, PISTONS
104: LeBron James had 25 points,
14 assists and narrowly missed his
second straight triple-double, and
Cleveland beat visiting Detroit,
sending the Pistons to their eighth
straight loss.
The Cavaliers won their second
straight game, giving them their
first winning streak since a fivegame run from Dec. 9 to Dec. 17.
James grabbed eight rebounds.
In other Cavaliers news, Coach
Tyronn Lue said he expects
Dwyane Wade to return Tuesday
for Cleveland’s game at Detroit.
The guard was excused from
the team after the death of his
longtime agent, Henry Thomas,
and also missed Friday’s game.
SPURS 113, KINGS 98: Bryn
Forbes scored a season-high
23 points to help host San Antonio
defeat Sacramento, which saw
Coach Dave Joerger exit the game
in the opening minutes after suffering a dizzy spell.
Joerger, 43, was taken to the
locker room and examined by a
Spurs team doctor. A San Antonio
official said Joerger was experiencing lightheadedness and was
kept in the locker room for precautionary reasons.
De’Aaron Fox scored 26 points
for the Kings.
RAPTORS 123, LAKERS
111: Fred VanVleet scored a career-
high 25 points, DeMar DeRozan
had 19, and host Toronto beat Los
Angeles to snap the Lakers’ winning streak at four.
The victory guarantees Toronto
(33-15) will have the second-best
record in the Eastern Conference
through Feb. 4, meaning Dwane
Casey will coach Team LeBron at
next month’s All-Star Game in Los
Angeles. Boston’s Brad Stevens,
whose Celtics lead the Eastern
Conference, is ineligible after
coaching last year’s game.
ROCKETS
113, SUNS 102:
James Harden had 27 points and
10 rebounds to lead host Houston
past Phoenix.
Harden fell two assists shy of
his third triple-double of the season. The Rockets beat the Suns for
the 14th time in their past 16
meetings.
Devin Booker had 31 points and
10 assists for Phoenix.
CLIPPERS 112, PELICANS
103: Blake Griffin had 27 points
and 12 rebounds and made a key
three-pointer with 43 seconds left,
he comes back and can he get his
finger on the timing of the swing?
He looks darned good. He’s keeping his [club] speed up.”
More promisingly, his fused
vertebrae are keeping everything
else painless. “The big concern
was playing out of the rough,” he
said. “I hadn’t played out of rye
grass since last year. It’s been
about 12 full months.”
Fortunately, he gave himself
ample practice out of the rough.
“Unfortunately, I put myself in
there in the first place,” he said.
Yet he found that once in that
rough, he could “jack up the
speed and had no issues at all.”
From trouble, he often got sublime. He said: “I fought hard for
these scores. These weren’t yawners, down the middle, on the
green, two-putt and one-hand all
your second putts in the hole.” He
even said, “It showed that I had
heart,” even as everybody already
knew that.
Speaking of Roger Federer,
who won his 20th men’s tennis
Grand Slam title at the Australian Open on Sunday, Woods said:
“Yeah, he’s young. He’s 36. I guess
it’s all relative. In that sport, he’s
very old, but in our sport, I’m 42,
that’s not that old. Davis [Love]
won here when he was in his 50s.
Vijay [Singh] did well all
throughout his 40s. So it’s very
possible out here for us.”
From the look and the sound of
the weekend, his hope didn’t
sound unreasonable.

is known to fly in his trainer, Drew
Hanlen, to get in extra work during the Wizards’ season. Over the
summer, Oubre even turned a
pleasure trip to New York Fashion
Week into a grind with Carmelo
Anthony’s trainer.
“We actually worked out at
5 a.m., and that was his request,”
said Chris Brickley, who recalled
how Oubre contacted him
through Instagram direct message. “That was the only guy all
summer that wanted to work out
that early. I knew he was taking
things serious by doing that. Not
many guys request something like
that, and he was one of the most
energetic people that I worked
with all summer.”
In New York City, Oubre encountered Anthony in star-studded pickup games. Though the
two spent little time together, the
10-time all-star saw Oubre’s greatest strength.
“His confidence,” Anthony said.
“The biggest thing in this league is
confidence. If you come in here
and you have a low level of confidence, this league will eat you
alive. It’s good to see him with his
level of confidence and playing
well. He’s a big, big part of what
the Wizards have going on over
there. I enjoyed playing against
him this summer in pickup. We
trash talk a little bit, and I like
that.”
During the Wizards’ recent
road trip, Oubre let the trash talk
flow with a glint in his eye. On
Jan. 19, as the Pistons routinely
cheated off him defensively, Oubre advised the Detroit bench of
its mistake.
“Don’t leave me open!” Oubre
remembered shouting until, according to his account, he heard
Pistons assistant coach Tim Hardaway Sr. retort, “Yeah, we’re going
to leave you all day.”
Oubre got the last laugh by
hitting a fourth-quarter threepointer in front of the bench, his
fifth of the game, while getting
fouled. As he lay on the court,
Oubre placed his hands on his
hips, turned and smiled at Hardaway.
It has taken years, but the shot
finally matches the swagger.
“For Kelly, it’s always been
about basketball,” Hunt said, “and
I think most of the guys around
the league have grown to respect
him because he plays hard and
he’s producing. And it’s not just
sizzle and no substance. There’s
something to him.”

Titans’ Walker scores late TD for AFC in Pro Bowl Consistency the key for
Patriots safety Harmon
AFC 24,
NFC 23
BY
BY
M ARK L ONG
orlando — Delanie Walker
held the ball in the end zone and
waited for his teammates to
celebrate.
They came from every direction: left, right and even the
bench.
The Tennessee Titans tight
end caught two touchdown passes, including an 18-yarder with
1:31 remaining , and the AFC beat
the NFC, 24-23, in a rain-soaked
Pro Bowl on Sunday.
Teammates mobbed him.
Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio
Browns, Baltimore safety Eric
Weddle, Jacksonville cornerback
Jalen Ramsey and Steelers Coach
Mike Tomlin were among those
who left the sideline to congratulate Walker.
“That’s as real as it gets in
football,” Oakland quarterback
Derek Carr said. “You always
want to win, especially with
money on the line.”
The winning team got $64,000
each, double the losing team’s
share.
“You’ve got guys on the sidelines saying, ‘I need that money,’ ” Carr said.
Carr completed 11 of 15 passes
for 115 yards and connected with
Walker on a skinny post for the
winning score.
Denver’s Von Miller sealed the
victory when he caused and
recovered a fumble by Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff.
Miller posed problems all afternoon for the NFC.
“I go all out all the time,”
Miller said.
Although the game was more
two-hand touch than hard-nosed
football, there were plenty of
defensive gems.
Arizona’s Patrick Peterson had
two interceptions. Minnesota’s
Harrison Smith returned a pick
for a score. And two players took
exception to one aggressive takedown. Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan and Oakland guard
Kelechi Osemele had words for
New Orleans defensive end Cameron Jordan after he drilled Indianapolis tight end Jack Doyle.
None of those plays compared
to Miller’s game-clinching stripsack.

Delanie Walker’s two scores, the second of which won the game, earned him offensive MVP honors.
“I knew Von was going to do
it,” Broncos teammate Aqib Talib
said. “When it’s clutch time,
crunch time, that’s what he does.
We needed a play, and Von went
and did what he does.”
The AFC overcame a 17-point
halftime deficit and four turnovers to win the annual all-star
game.
Heavy downpours were partly
to blame for the sloppiness.
The rain prompted some fans
to leave Camping World Stadium
and others to break out ponchos.
It also caused players on both
sidelines to scramble to protect
cellphones.
Jordan, New Orleans running
back Mark Ingram and others
had their phones in hand during
introductions, and dozens more
could be seen using them on the
sidelines early in the game. They
shoved them in plastic bags as
the rain started.
Each of the AFC quarterbacks
— Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger, Kansas City’s Alex Smith
and Carr — threw an interception. And Kansas City returner
Tyreek Hill muffed a punt.
Carr made up for his mistake
by completing a 12-yard pass to
Miami’s Jarvis Landry on a
fourth-and-seven play in the
waning minutes. He found Walker down the middle for the
winner three plays later.
Walker was voted the offensive
MVP, and Miller was the defensive MVP. Both received luxury
cars to go along with trophies.
“He’s a Super Bowl MVP and
now a Pro Bowl MVP as well,”
Talib said of Miller. “Another
accolade for him. The more accolades you get, the more people
expect from you.”
The NFC looked like it would
coast to a victory early as two
Minnesota Vikings made big
plays a week earlier than they
wanted (Super Bowl) and a week
later than they needed (NFC
championship game).
Adam Thielen had a touchdown reception on the opening
drive, and Smith returned an
interception 79 yards for a score
as the NFC opened up a 20-3 lead
at halftime.
But the NFC failed to hold on
to the lead. Goff threw incomplete on two fourth-down passes
late as Saints Coach Sean Payton
tried to keep drives alive and
milk the clock.
That was the opening Carr,
Walker and Miller needed.
“I think it makes it more
exciting for the fans for us to put
on a show like that and go down
to the last minute and win the
game,” said Walker, who also
caught a four-yard TD pass from
Smith in the third.

Harmon thought it was time to
speak up.
It was about a half-hour after
the Patriots’ 33-30 loss to the
Carolina Panthers on Oct. 1. As
his teammates walked around in
a daze following their second
loss in four games, Harmon
didn’t hold back when asked
what was wrong with a defense
that already had given up 30 or
more points three times.
“Obviously, what we’re doing
is not good enough, so we need
to go take a look in the mirror
and just look and realize: Are we
doing enough to win?” he said
that night.
Both the words and the sentiment had a familiar ring to them.
That’s because it was Harmon
who issued a similar challenge
to his team during halftime of
last year’s Super Bowl against
Atlanta. It’s a pep talk his teammates credited with helping
them complete their 25-point
comeback.
Since signing a four-year,
$17 million contract this past
offseason, the defensive captain
has become an even more vocal
presence in the Patriots’ locker
room and was one of their most
consistent players down the
stretch.
He led the team with four
interceptions, including one in
the end zone in the waning
seconds of New England’s 27-24
win at Pittsburgh that would
help it secure home-field advantage in the postseason.
The 27-year-old says he still
feels like a “young player” but
that he has felt more at ease
speaking his mind as he heads to
his third Super Bowl, where the
Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday.
Part of the reason is because
he thinks he’s playing alongside
a defensive unit that is just as
tough mentally as the one that
showed up when it had to
against Atlanta. He also doesn’t
have to worry about hurting
anyone’s feelings in a locker
room where the demand for
excellence is so high.
“Just a group of fighters,”
Harmon said. “I mean, you just
look at the way the year pro-
gressed — started the year not
the way we wanted to, came out
and lost the opener, got to 2-2,
but nobody in here really listened to the noise. We ignored it.
We did everything we can to get
better and try to progress
throughout the year and that’s
the reason why we’re here right
now, just because we continued
to fight.”
Patriots safety Devin McCourty said Harmon’s preparation is noticeable to his teammates and gives him credibility
when he chooses to speak out. It
also has allowed the coaching
staff to trust him late in games.
“The situation doesn’t affect
him. The pressure doesn’t bother
him,” McCourty said. “Since he
was a young guy in here, if he was
thrown in there at the end of the
game he was ready to go, and I
thought he’s always done a good
job of taking advantage of opportunities.”
It’s also kept Harmon on the
field.
He appeared in all 16 regular
season games for the fourth
straight season. Though often
used in nickel situations as the
third safety, including in the
playoffs, Harmon has been on
the field for 60 percent or more
of the Patriots’ defensive snaps 11
times this season.
Having him out there is never
a bad thing, Coach Bill Belichick
said.
“Whether he’s 60 percent or
80 percent, whatever it is,
70 percent, whatever it ends up
being — we want him on the
field. He does a good job for us,”
Belichick said.
Harmon said playing in a
place that puts such a premium
on accountability is what drew
him in from the beginning.
“If you love winning, it’s not
hard,” he said. “I mean, this is
what this place is about — winning. Everything we do, everything we sacrifice for is for to
win. Coming here as a young guy
five years ago, I just see how
competitive this place was and I
just wanted to be a part of it, so I
did everything in my power to
continue to get better and try to
make sure that at the end of
training camp I’m always on this
roster.”

Patriots’ dynasty was built from the ashes of Belichick’s failure with the Browns
BELICHICK FROM D1
verge of a sixth championship,
beyond those greats), he had the
same personality: meticulous, unforgiving, nearly obsessed with
maximizing each second in a 24hour day.
Though not everything was the
same, and anyone who suggests
Belichick had a lifetime ticket on
the legend track — and, five championships later, there are many —
is forgetting the hostile chants and
the police cars and the stealth
departures to flee from an angry
Cleveland.
The early days
But first, yes, there were hints
that Belichick would indeed become Belichick, even when he was
just another 39-year-old man finding himself in a new job. Back
then, he had no proven system
beyond what he had studied under his father, a scout, and experienced under Bill Parcells, a coach
and mentor of some acclaim. “Do
your job” wasn’t yet a rallying cry
of accountability or the title of
documentaries; it was a crude
state of mind that inspired some of
Belichick’s assistants and turned a
few others against him.
“We were handcuffed — let’s put
it that way,” said Gary Tranquill,
who coached the Browns’ quarterbacks for three seasons before deciding, after Cleveland went 7-9 in
1993, he’d had enough of his stubborn boss and quit. “I didn’t have
any fun coaching there. It’s as simple as that.”
Indeed, Accorsi would recall
years later, he occasionally fielded
complaints from Browns staffers.
The hours were long, the work
thankless, the rewards — considering Cleveland endured losing
campaigns in four of Belichick’s
five seasons — rare.
Belichick was demanding and
sarcastic, and he expected his assistants to “extend the day,” as he
often put it. That meant doing
more than they might have been
used to in other jobs, and Venturi
said coaching was only part of his
job description. Belichick demanded his coaches prepare for
any scenario on the field, no matter how unlikely, and give a presentation on the best way to respond. They were assigned a doz-
en or so college players to scout
and consider for the draft’s late
rounds, to watch film of game
officials and unearth which crews
called which penalties more or
less often, to convene on Saturdays — ordinarily a light day of
final prep — for a marathon review of how they would defend
and attack their opponent.
Even when coaches scattered
for summer vacation, they were
subjected to the Belichick book
club: some assignment, such as
legendary coach Bill Walsh’s
“Finding the Winning Edge,” with
the expectation Belichick would
quiz them on its contents.
“Everything to the 10th power,”
said Venturi, who had coached
nearly two decades of college and
professional football before arriving in Cleveland. “I was reshaped
in my coaching thinking in every
aspect.”
And in place of restful sleep and
a peaceful existence and winning
seasons, there was at least this:
“When you went out on Sundays,
you always felt confident you
weren’t going to lose,” Venturi said.
But the Browns often did, and
that engendered resentment.
Tranquill, a specialist on offense,
bristled that Belichick hired no
offensive coordinator and insisted
on calling plays despite having
been a defensive coordinator under Parcells.
Tranquill said Belichick simply
called things he had struggled to
defend, and during one game
when that wasn’t working,
Belichick gave up and surprised
Tranquill by telling him he was in
charge for the rest of the game —
and if he was unprepared, well,
that was his fault.
“There was nobody on offense
calling the shots,” said Tranquill,
who had grown accustomed to demanding work environments during five seasons as Navy’s head
coach. “We would mash around
things for hours, and then we’d have
to go through him to make sure, and
he’d say he doesn’t want to do that —
which is a head coach prerogative,
but sometimes that got old.”
So, after a while, did the losing.
When Accorsi hired Belichick,
who had chosen to lead the
Browns instead of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, he told him a dramatic roster overhaul lay ahead. Sure
Shula out of retirement before ultimately replacing Belichick with
Ted Marchibroda.

Coach Bill Belichick, with Tom Brady, has enjoyed five Super Bowl titles, a far cry from Cleveland.
“If somebody
is wasting his
time, he has
no use for it.”
Rick Venturi, former
Cleveland Browns assistant
coach under Bill Belichick
enough, Cleveland went 20-28 in
Belichick’s first three seasons, and
by 1993 fans had begun referring
to the coach as “Mr. Bill,” the clay
figurine on “Saturday Night Live”
whose intentions were good
enough but whose hapless decisions often led to his maiming or
being sawed in half.
The Columbus Dispatch referred to Belichick as a “clown” in
1993, and disgruntled fans
marched on Berea, Ohio, to protest the coach with signs that read
“Waive Belichick.” After Belichick
released Bernie Kosar, the
Browns’ popular quarterback,
about 200 fans sneaked into the
Municipal Stadium tunnel after a
Cleveland loss to chant “Bill must
go!” among other profane things.
During the darkest times, the man
who would become the greatest
coach in history went home to the
suburbs to find a police surveillance unit posted outside for his
protection and went to work to
find another cruiser stationed outside Browns headquarters.
“I’m not running for mayor,”
Belichick, not yet the mumbling
and dismissive news conference
figure seen today, told reporters
then. “I’m running a football team,
and you can’t make everybody
happy.”
Belichick’s Browns did win 11
games in 1994 to reach the playoffs, which loyalists point to as a
hint at the coach’s genius, but a
year later Modell announced he
was relocating his franchise to
Baltimore; following the announcement, a team that started
4-4 lost seven of its final eight
games.
To cope, Belichick occasionally
scheduled his team to depart for
road trips as early as Tuesday for a
Sunday game, just to get out of
Cleveland.
“It was so depressing to be in
town,” Venturi said, adding that by
the end of that season it became an
inevitability that Belichick and his
staff would be fired. Modell — who
died in 2012 — admitted as much,
saying if his bid to move the team
to Baltimore were approved, he
would start entirely fresh. Besides,
he preferred a more genial, less
intense coach; he tried to lure Don
Post-Cleveland days
As for Belichick, he rejoined
Parcells as secondary coach for the
Patriots, with whom things just
seem to have a way of working out.
It was Patriots owner Robert Kraft
who, in February 1996, had
planned to vote against Cleveland’s relocation but changed his
mind on the day of the meeting
and cast one of the deciding ballots supporting the franchise that
would eventually become the Baltimore Ravens.
Kraft observed Belichick while
Belichick was an assistant coach
and recruited him to replace Pete
Carroll as New England’s coach in
2000. By then, Belichick’s philosophy had evolved, his on-camera
persona had dried, his impatience
and demanding nature had intensified.
Those things were different, but
his first season with the Patriots
looked like little else had changed:
New England went 5-11, shades of
Cleveland. But Belichick had
drafted a young quarterback
named Brady the previous year,
and despite entering the 2001 season with 60-to-1 odds of winning
the Super Bowl, they did exactly
that by upsetting the heavily favored St. Louis Rams.
But a few months earlier,
Belichick’s program was beginning to take shape in training
camp. The New York Giants had
agreed to visit Bryant College in
Rhode Island to participate in a
series of joint practices with the
Patriots in August 2001. Accorsi,
by then the Giants’ general manager, had been the architect of a
team that reached the previous
year’s Super Bowl but had lost to
Modell’s Ravens.
Nevertheless, at one point
Belichick ambled over to the man
who had hired him a decade earlier, neither of them with any idea
they were witnessing the start of
something historic, and thanked
Accorsi for coming to Rhode Island. Belichick told his old friend
he thought it’d be good for the
Patriots to spend time around the
Giants, to see how a Super Bowl
team carried itself.

NHL ALL-STAR GAME
Rookie MVP propels Pacific to crown
PACIFIC 5,
ATLANTIC 2
BY
F RED G OODALL
tampa — Vancouver’s Brock Boeser was more than happy to just be
at the NHL All-Star Game, mingling with some of the high-profile
players he grew up admiring.
Leaving Amalie Arena as the
first rookie to take MVP honors
since Mario Lemieux in 1985 on
Sunday far exceeded anything he
imagined possible.
“Shocked,” the 20-year-old said
Canucks star said, describing his
reaction. “I never would have
dreamt this any time in life.”
Rickard Rakell had two goals
and Boeser, Johnny Gaudreau and
Drew Doughty also scored to help
the Pacific Division beat the Atlantic, 5-2, in the championship game
of a four-team divisional tournament played in an entertaining
three-on-three format adopted for
the All-Star Game in 2016.
The NHL’s leading rookie scorer with 24 goals and 19 assists for
the Canucks also had a helper in
the final after scoring to put his
team ahead for good in the Pacific’s 5-2 semifinal victory over
the Central Division.
“I was definitely nervous coming into it,” said Boeser, the only
rookie among 15 first-time allstars. “[I said] enjoy this, just have
fun, smile. That’s what I did.”
Goalies Marc-Andre Fleury and
Mike Smith teamed to allow just
four goals in the two games the
Pacific won to claim the $1 million
winner-take-all prize.
Mike Green had two goals for
the Atlantic, one off both Fleury
and Smith in the final.
Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov
had three goals in the Atlantic’s 7-4
semifinal win over the Metropolitan Division, but the young star
was shut out in the final.
“After we saw that we won the
first game, we said we needed to
tighten up a little bit and play a
little harder there for the cash,”
said Gaudreau, who plays for the

Vancouver’s Brock Boeser is the first rookie to take all-star MVP honors since Mario Lemieux in 1985.
Calgary Flames.
“We made sure we were ready to
go. [Because] now there’s something to play for in the finals,” said
Smith, who stopped six of seven
shots in the second half. “Our guys
did a good job to up the tempo.”
All-star weekend began with a
free outdoor concert headlined by
Fitz and the Tantrums and also
featured a three-day fun fest for
fans, as well as the annual skills
competition that wrapped up Saturday’s festivities.
Adding spice and a unique flavor to the experience was Tampa’s
annual Gasparilla Pirate Invasion,
which drew what officials estimated as an additional 200,000 people to the downtown waterfront
for a parade and other activities.
Players walked the red carpet,
posing for pictures and signing
autographs before entering
Amalie Arena for the first All-Star
Game played in Tampa since 1999,
the last of Wayne Gretzky’s 18 appearances in the midseason showcase that shifts to San Jose next
season.
With the Lightning’s Jon Cooper coaching the Atlantic Division, and the team with the NHL’s
best record represented by a
league-high four players, the sellout crowd of 19,092 roared its
approval when the Atlantic-Metropolitan semifinal began with
goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, plus
Kucherov, Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos on the ice at the same
time.
Kucherov’s hat trick in the Atlantic’s semifinal win was the first
for an All-Star Game since the
NHL instituted the three-match,
three-on-three format.
Point, Toronto’s Auston Matthews and Buffalo’s Jack Eichel
also scored for the Atlantic, which
rallied from a 3-1 deficit after Vasilevskiy allowed early goals to Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux and Washington’s Alex Ovechkin.
Boeser snapped a 2-2 tie, James
Neal of the Western Conferenceleading Vegas Golden Knights
scored two goals, and Edmonton’s

In young NHL, Ovechkin remains star among stars
OVECHKIN FROM D1
In a win over the Florida Panthers on Thursday, Ovechkin
reached two significant milestones. With a goal, he became
the third player in NHL history to
score 30 or more in each of the
first 13 seasons of his career. With
an assist, he reached 500 for his
career and became the fourth
active player to record 500 goals
and 500 assists. He leads the NHL
with 30 goals, and for good measure he stole the league’s hardestshot competition Saturday, blasting a puck 101.3 mph to became
the first forward since 2002 to
win the event.
This is all happening as the
NHL gets faster and younger
with, as the All-Star Game
showed, a new set of stars. But
Ovechkin has lifted the Capitals
into first place at the break and is
reshaping the answer to the question: What does it mean to be
“old” in today’s NHL?
“Well, it’s apparently not 32,
right?” said Los Angeles Kings
center Anze Kopitar, who is 30
and played for the Pacific Division team this weekend. “The
hardest thing to do in this league
is score goals. Alex can obviously
do that as well as anyone, and
there is no sign of him slowing
down.”
The league’s wave of youth
rolled into Tampa this weekend
with 15 first-time all-stars. They
weren’t all young players — 10year veteran Josh Bailey of the
New York Islanders made the
Atlantic Division team, for example — but there were plenty of
fresh faces joining the NHL’s best.
Only 11 of the 36 total skaters
were 30 years or older. Ovechkin
was the fourth-oldest skater, behind only San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, who is
also 32, and New Jersey Devils
center Brian Boyle and Minnesota Wild defenseman Eric Staal,
both 33.
The Capitals’ captain was one
of the most consistent topics of
conversation across the three-day
event. Young players, such as
21-year-old Buffalo Sabres star
Jack Eichel and 22-year-old Colorado Avalanche star Nathan
MacKinnon, discussed growing
up as Ovechkin fans and marveled at his longevity. Tyler
Seguin, a 25-year-old center for
the Dallas Stars, joked that he
wants to ask Ovechkin whether
he ever aims his shot or just lets it
rip. Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green, who played
with Ovechkin in Washington
and is only a few weeks younger
than his former teammate, said
J OHN P YE
melbourne, australia — As
Roger Federer cried while accepting his 20th Grand Slam title, Rod
“Rocket” Laver took a chance to
snap a picture for posterity.
Federer has won more major
tennis titles than any man, including a record-equaling six on
the court that bears the great Rod
Laver’s name at Melbourne Park.
This one, following a tensionfilled, momentum-swinging 6-2,
6-7 (7-5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 win over
Marin Cilic in Sunday’s Australian Open final, was a keeper.
Laver has been involved in the
on-court presentations in the
past, witnessing Federer’s tears at
close range. This time, Laver —
the only man to achieve the calendar Grand Slam twice — held up
his phone to get the shot from the
stands.
“I didn’t see that through my
thick tears, that he was taking a
picture of me crying,” Federer
said. He joked in a TV interview
that “I couldn’t lift my head, I was
so embarrassed.”
Surely, it’s only an embarrassment of riches.
Federer arrived in Melbourne
at the start of 2017 after an extended injury layoff and on a
Grand Slam title drought that
dated from 2012 at Wimbledon.
Having successfully defended his
Australian title, Federer has now
won three of the past five majors
in a stunning career resurgence.
“I’m so happy. It’s unbelievable,” Federer said, taking deep
breaths and choking back tears.
“Of course, winning is an absolute
dream come true — the fairy tale
continues for us, for me, after the
great year I had last year, it’s
incredible.”
Federer started to tear up
toward the end of the trophy ceremony as he thanked his team in
the stands: “I love you guys.
Thank you.”
He then received a standing
ovation as tears streamed down
his face.
At the age of 36 years 173 days,
Federer became the second-oldest man to win a Grand Slam title
in the Open era after Ken Rosewall, who won the 1972 Australian
Open at 37.
The match wasn’t entirely
without controversy after organizers decided early to close the
roof for the final, just as they had
for the afternoon mixed doubles
final when Mate Pavic and Gabriela Dabrowski beat Rohan Bopanna and Timea Babos for the title.
Former
champions
were
among the commentators questioning the decision, suggesting
there’d been hotter days earlier in
the tournament when the heat
policy was not enacted.
“I was surprised to hear they
had the heat rule in place for a
night match. I never heard that
before,” Federer said. “Half an
hour before, we got the word that
it’s going to be indoors. For me, it
doesn’t change anything in the
preparation, to be honest. I was
ready for either.”
Tournament referee Wayne
McEwen has the option of closing
the roof when the temperature
reaches 40 degrees Celsius (104
Fahrenheit) and a measure called
the wet-bulb globe temperature
— which combines factors such as
heat, humidity and breeze —
reaches 32.5C (90.5F).
The temperature hit 38C
(100F) an hour before the men’s
final, when the WGBT reading
was 32.7C (91F).
“With no dramatic reduction
forecast, the referee exercised his
discretion and called for the roof
to be closed,” Tennis Australia
said in a statement defending the
decision. “At no other time during
the event this year has the WBGT
reading reached the threshold.”
Federer took instant advantage
of the air-conditioned venue,
breaking Cilic’s serve in the first
and third games.
“Mentally was tough. Also was
difficult
with
conditions.
Throughout the tournament I
played all my matches outdoors,
also preparing a hot day,” Cilic
said. “Then first match for the
final to play with the roof closed,
it’s difficult.
“It was just little bit difficult to
adjust, especially the beginning of
the match,” he said, “especially for
the final to be in that kind of a
situation.”

that this Ovechkin and the
Ovechkin of 10 years ago are not
much different.
Theories about how Ovechkin
has kept up his goal-scoring pace
varied but centered on the same
themes: the slap shot; the ability
to operate in small, shrinking
windows of space; the notion that
goals always will be goals, no
matter how they come or how old
the scorer is.
Ovechkin has faced perpetual
scrutiny that he is slowing down,
that he is not in shape, that he is
in the back half of a career that
will be full of hollow statistics and
unfulfilled objectives. That was
heightened last season when he
finished with a career-low 16
even-strength goals, discounting
the lockout-shortened 2012-13
season. This season, those criticisms have been quieted, and
Ovechkin’s age has gone from a
slight to a strength.
“I’m 31, and I’ve never felt
better,” said Winnipeg Jets forward Blake Wheeler, who played
in his first All-Star Game. “He
came in the league a little bit
different than I did. He’s had the
wear and tear of the playoffs, and
he’s had to carry a big burden. I
think we’re probably a bit different 31 and 32, but, I mean, the
guy’s looking better than ever.”
On Saturday, Ovechkin and
Tampa Bay Lightning forward
Steven Stamkos answered questions on a wooden deck off the
coast of Old Tampa Bay. Ovechkin
was reminded that it was here in
Tampa, 14 years ago, where he
was first introduced to NHL media as a top prospect at a meetand-greet during the 2004 Stanley Cup finals a few weeks before
the Capitals drafted him first
overall.
Then, he had stringy darkbrown bangs covering his forehead and no facial hair. Now his
hair is a dull silver, a beard covers
his face, and he was asked, along
with Stamkos, whether there is
more pressure to produce in a
league trending toward teenagers
and players in their early 20s.
“I know Alex is a little older
than I am, but this is my 10th year,
and I’ll be 28 in the next couple
weeks, and I feel like an old guy
almost,” Stamkos said. “It’s pretty
amazing to see how young the
league has become but even more
amazing to see how good these
kids are coming up.”
Stamkos continued on about
how he tries to keep up with his
younger teammates, three of
them also all-stars, and how the
youngest players were not as advanced a decade ago. But sitting
next to him was a player whose
career numbers say otherwise,
who was only a 20-year-old rookie when he finished with
106 points (52 goals, 54 assists),
22 years old when he won his first
of three Hart Memorial trophies,
and is still going.
Now it was Ovechkin’s turn to
speak — and maybe offer some
secret or insight into how he has
sustained such a high level of play
into the first month of 2018. He
smirked and leaned toward the
microphone.
“Hundred percent agree with
Stamkos,” Ovechkin said, and
that was that.

Loch captures sixth World Cup overall luge crown Outside shooting boosts
Bonnies past Colonials
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Olympic champion Felix Loch
secured his sixth World Cup overall luge title while Semen Pavlichenko won the men’s European
title Sunday in Sigulda, Latvia.
Loch’s third place in the World
Cup-ending sprint was enough to
claim the overall title with
923 points from 13 events. His
closest rival, world champion
Wolfgang Kindl of Austria, finished 85 points behind.
Russia’s Roman Repilov won
the sprint in 27.839 seconds, beating Slovakia’s Jozef Ninis by 0.072
and Loch by 0.138.
Russia’s Tatyana Ivanova won
the women’s sprint by 0.005 over
Natalie Geisenberger, who already
had claimed her record sixth overall World Cup title.
World champions and overall
World Cup winners Toni Eggert
and Sascha Benecken won the
doubles sprint.
Loch’s victory Sunday ensured
German domination continued
ahead of the Olympics, with the
men’s, women’s and doubles overall titles all wrapped up.
Loch has won gold in men’s
singles at the past two Olympics.
Earlier, Semen Pavlichenko
won the men’s luge race ahead of
Loch to defend his European title.

WADA: The World Anti-Doping Agency is looking into possible
integrity issues with urine-collection bottles that were redesigned
after the Russian Olympic doping
scandal.
WADA said it learned Jan. 19,

ing of a sample.
Investigators found that Russians were able to surreptitiously
open bottles at the Sochi Olympics
and exchange dirty urine samples
with clean ones previously provided to the same athlete.
That led to a redesign of the
bottles, and WADA said if there is,
in fact, a flaw, it “will raise concerns and questions.”
Russia’s Olympic committee
has been banned from the PyeongChang Games, and this weekend,
the International Olympic Committee said it had approved 169
Russian athletes to compete as
“Olympic Athletes from Russia.”
SNOWBOARDING: Olym-
pic champion Iouri Podladtchikov
suffered a broken nose after slamming his head against the halfpipe
at the Winter X Games in Aspen,
Colo., and was awake and alert at
the hospital Sunday night.
Officials said scans for brain
and neck injuries came back negative.
The snowboarder was attempting a 1260-degree jump on his last
trick in the halfpipe when he
slammed against the lip.
Japan’s Ayumu Hirano went on
to win the event with a score of 99.
Late Saturday, Chloe Kim won
the women’s halfpipe.
SLALOM: American star Mikaela Shiffrin lost her six-race win-
ning streak in World Cup slaloms
when she skied off course while
leading by a full second within
sight of the finish in Lenzerheide,
Switzerland.
Shiffrin’s off-balance miscue
gave the victory to Petra Vlhova of
Slovakia in the last slalom before
the PyeongChang Games. Shiffrin
placed 27th.
Still, Shiffrin retained her big
leads in the World Cup overall and
slalom standings.

KINNEY FROM D1
Coach and two-time Olympian
Patrick Ewing during his brief
campus visit, attended a press
event in Baltimore and a fundraiser in D.C. the following day
before heading to Calgary for a
week of fine-tuning ahead of next
month’s Games.
One year after graduating from
Georgetown with a degree in
Japanese, Kinney accepted a job
with a sporting goods and clothing company in Tsukuba, Japan.
Kinney had traveled to Japan as a
child; his grandmother is Japanese, and he is fluent in the
language. Over the next threeplus years, Kinney trained with a
coach from the Japanese national
team and competed in track
meets throughout Japan and the
United States with an eye toward
qualifying for the Summer Olympics.
In August 2014, Kinney was
home in Georgia preparing for
the Florida Relays when he took a
road trip with his grandfather to a
USA Bobsled and Skeleton combine in Greenville, S.C. “I was
researching it at work and
thought it would be kind of fun,”
said Kinney, whose interest in the
sport was piqued earlier that year
by a conversation with American
hurdler Lolo Jones at a track meet
in Japan. Jones competed for the
United States’ women’s bobsled
team at the 2014 Sochi Games but
did not make the team for the
PyeongChang Olympics.
Among the 18 men who participated in the bobsled portion of
the combine in Greenville, Kinney finished with the secondhighest score behind Alex Harrison, a former decathlete at Western Washington University. Kinney’s strong showing earned him
an invitation to the rookie push
championships in Lake Placid,
N.Y., where things didn’t come as
easily. He finished 10th out of
20 competitors.
“I was fast, but I wasn’t strong
enough to push a bobsled,” Kinney said.
Still, Kinney decided to stick
with bobsledding. He had become frustrated with his lack of
improvement as a hurdler in Japan, and he missed his grandfather — his father figure and best
friend. “My grandfather’s always
been supportive,” Kinney said. “In
track, he would call me after
every race, just to see how I did,
and he attended every one of my
meets in high school.” In 2016,
Kinney moved back to the United
States, began training at the East
Tennessee State University Olympic training site while pursuing
his MBA at the school and qualified for the national team.

Chris Kinney is teaming with Nick Cunningham, Hakeem Abdul-Saboor and Sam Michener.
“It’s all about
acceleration. That
was my weakest
point when I was
running in college.
Now it’s all in the
start.”
Chris Kinney
“The training in Japan was a
bit difficult,” Kinney said. “I had a
great coach, but something
wasn’t clicking. I kind of plateaued a bit. I thought I could
transition well to bobsled and
come back and be closer to my
grandparents. It all fell into
place.”
It was a process, though. At
Georgetown, Kinney relied on his
top-level speed to overcome mediocre starts and outrun competitors from the middle portion of
his races to the finish line. In
bobsled, the five seconds Kinney
and his teammates spend pushing the sled 50 meters before
jumping inside and hunkering
down at the top of the run are
critical.
“It’s all about acceleration,”
Kinney said. “That was my weakest point when I was running in
college. Now it’s all in the start.”
Kinney, who won gold in the
two-man with Cunningham at
the North American Cup in November, has taken the past two
semesters off from his studies to
focus on bobsledding and expects
to finish his MBA program in
2019. In his increasingly limited
free time, Kinney enjoys doing
origami, which his mother taught
him.
“It’s kind of a good stress reliever,” Kinney said with a laugh.
“Everyone in Japan gets a kick out
of it. They’re like, ‘Who’s this big
black guy that can do origami?’ ”
Kinney hasn’t ruled out a return to track and field after the
Winter Olympics, but as he prepared for a workout on the campus where he used to dread lifting
weights, he was focused on returning from South Korea as a
bobsledding champion.
“If all of us do our part and do
what we need to do,” Kinney said,
“hopefully we’ll be in contention
for a medal.”

Called on to start, Donte DiVincenzo supplied Villanova with a
lift from the opening tip and never
let up.
The top-ranked Wildcats avoided another upset in Milwaukee by
surviving an injury scare to preseason
all-American
Jalen
Brunson and getting key contributions from DiVincenzo in place of
sidelined guard Phil Booth.
Brunson scored 31 points despite leaving briefly with an ankle
injury, while DiVincenzo added 23

win Sunday over Marquette.
The Wildcats (20-1, 7-1 Big East)
turned away surge after surge
from Marquette (13-8, 4-5) in front
of a rowdy crowd at Bradley Center. It was a year ago that Marquette upset a Villanova team

“We found out what it is to play

Izzo faces pointed questions about former player, program
BY
G ENE W ANG
The sixth-ranked Michigan
State men’s basketball team had
just rallied from a double-digit
deficit to beat Maryland, 74-68, on
Saturday afternoon when Spartans Coach Tom Izzo arrived for
his postgame news conference at
Xfinity Center.
Weary from off-the-court issues
that have painted the school’s athletic department in a most unfavorable light, the architect of one
of the most successful programs
over the past two decades immediately faced pointed questions
about a recent ESPN report revealing an assault on a female student
in 2010 by one of Izzo’s former
players who at the time was serving on the coaching staff.
“We all know it’s been a time
when there’s a lot of distractions,
and I think sometimes guys just
have to focus in on their jobs and
then deal with the other stuff after,
and that’s what they did,” Izzo said
in his opening statement, referring to his players.
From there, ESPN’s Tisha
Thompson, an investigative reporter for “Outside the Lines,”
asked Izzo: “In 2010, Travis Walton
was charged with assault and battery for punching a female student
in the face. There were witnesses.
She was injured. Why was he allowed to continue on the coaching
staff and be with the team while
charges were pending?”
Walton was a student-assistant
on Izzo’s staff in 2010, the year
after he helped Michigan State
reach the national championship
game. ESPN also reported Walton
was accused of sexually assaulting
a different woman months later
after the Spartans reached the Final Four that season.
“Well, as I said before, we’ll
cooperate with any investigation
and always have,” Izzo said. “We’ve
done it before, and we’ll do it
moving forward. It’s about all I’m
going to say on it that we did
cooperate with everything.”
Walton, who has denied making physical contact with the accuser, pleaded not guilty at his
arraignment, and assault and battery charges were dropped. He
pleaded guilty to a civil infraction
for littering, “Outside the Lines”
reported.
Thompson then responded by
asking: “We want to give you every
opportunity to answer questions.
There’s a lot of questions. A big one
is, ‘Why did Travis leave the program in 2010?’ ”
“I don’t know what you mean.
He graduated,” Izzo said.
Thompson countered: “He was
on your staff throughout 2010. An
allegation came forward later that
year from a woman and her family
to the athletic department that he
and two other players raped her.
He then left the program later that
year in 2010. Why?”
Izzo said: “To be honest with
PATRICK SEMANSKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS
“We’ll cooperate with any investigation and always have,” Michigan State Coach Tom Izzo said Sunday.
you, I don’t know why he left. He
went to Europe to play, and as you
know, I’ll still say I’ll cooperate
with any investigation that’s
made. I did it then. I did it before,
and I’m not going to answer any
questions that aren’t pertaining to
basketball or things that I am not
going to talk about right now.”
Thompson continued to press
Izzo.
“Let me ask you this question
then,” she said. “Looking back at
the way sexual assault allegations
have been handled by your basketball program, do you have any
regrets?”
Izzo paused for a lengthy period, at least in terms of answering
during a news conference, before
he replied: “I’ve cooperated [with]
every investigation, every one,
and I will continue to cooperate
with every investigation, every
one.”
Izzo and the program also have
been under intense scrutiny for
another “Outside the Lines” report revealing former Michigan
State players Adreian Payne and
Keith Appling were accused of
raping a female student following
freshman orientation at the
school in 2010.
The report links officials at the
Michigan State athletic department to “widespread denial, inaction and information suppression
of” sexual assault and abuse dating from 1997, when the first complaint against Larry Nassar was
brought forward.
Nassar is a former Michigan
State and USA Gymnastics doctor
who, following a guilty plea to
10 counts of first-degree criminal
sexual conduct with children under the age of 16, received a prison
sentence of 40 to 175 years on
Wednesday.
On the same day, Lou Anna
Simon resigned as Michigan State
president. Two days later, Mark
Hollis announced his retirement
as the school’s athletic director.
On Saturday, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said a
special prosecutor would be investigating Michigan State to determine how Nassar could have sexually abused girls and young women for two decades without university action.
That announcement came two
days after Izzo and football Coach
Mark Dantonio, whose program
also has come under fire for gross
mishandling of sexual assault allegations, said they would not step
down.

With Terps
falling apart,
so are hopes
for NCAAs
TERPS FROM D1
but for a couple of trivial hours
Sunday, his team continued to
look like a national championship contender. Maryland (15-8,
4-6 Big Ten), meanwhile, continued to look destined to miss the
NCAA tournament after blowing
a 13-point halftime lead.
“I’m not caught up in, ‘We have
to win this game to be in that
tournament,’ ” Maryland Coach
Mark Turgeon said after his team
fell to 1-7 against teams ranked in
the top 50 of the Rating Percentage Index, a key measure for the
tournament selection committee.
“That doesn’t matter to me. What
matters is that we play our best
basketball, and the rest will take
care of itself.”
Maryland had played some of
its best basketball in the first half
Sunday, especially on the defensive end, where it held Michigan
State star Miles Bridges to just
three points on seven shots and
pestered the Spartans into 9-for33 shooting while building a 3724 halftime lead. But then the rest
took care of itself.
“We were all rah-rah at halftime. We were excited. We knew
the game wasn’t over, but we
were excited,” said sophomore
guard Kevin Huerter, who finished with 17 points. “We got
ahead of ourselves a little bit.”
Maryland had five days of
preparation after a demoralizing
71-68 loss at Indiana on Monday
night, and the top priority on
Turgeon’s scouting report was
rebounding. Yet Michigan State
(20-3, 8-2) held a 46-29 advantage
on the boards, which included
19 offensive rebounds and 16 second-chance points. And Izzo
made a slew of second-half adjustments as the Spartans picked
up the pace.
Maryland didn’t hustle back in
transition on the opening possessions of the second half, and it
didn’t close out on the perimeter
against freshman power forward
Jaren Jackson Jr., who nailed two
three-pointers early in the half to
spur a 20-4 run that stunned the
crowd. It hardly mattered that
PHOTOS BY KATHERINE FREY/THE WASHINGTON POST
Bridges finished with only
11 points on 3-for-13 shooting;
Michigan State received 19 points
from Joshua Langford and 12
from Jackson as it shot 53.3 percent (16 for 30) in the final
20 minutes.
“A lot of it is size and athleticism that they have, and other
times we just didn’t get it done,”
Turgeon said.
Maryland’s offense also didn’t
get it done down the stretch,
which has been a recurring
theme in its five losses over the
past seven games. There were
multiple inexplicable scoring
droughts that lasted more than
three minutes in the second half.
Sophomore point guard Anthony
Cowan Jr. needed 12 shots to
score 12 points, and while he had
nine assists, that number could
have been much higher had
Maryland received more production from its frontcourt duo of
Darryl Morsell, top left, and the Terrapins had a 13-point lead at
halftime against the Spartans, but Michal Cekovsky, above center,
and Maryland were outscored by 19 points in the second half.
Michal Cekovsky (seven points)
and Bruno Fernando (two points
on 1-for-8 shooting). Maryland
shot just 34.6 percent (9 for 26)
from the field in the second half.
“We just have to keep learning
from our mistakes. That’s the best
thing we can do right now,” said
senior guard Jared Nickens, who
finished with 10 points.
Maryland probably will need
to pull a major upset at No. 3
Purdue on Wednesday to remain
in the conversation for an atlarge tournament bid, but it will
take time to get over the opportunity lost Sunday. There were still
enticing chances in the second
half, especially after Jackson
picked up his fourth foul with
11:23 left.
“There’s a reason why they
were preseason number one.
They have a lot of pros running
around on their side,” Turgeon
said. “We withstood the first run
and kept it tied for a while.”
Huerter missed a pair of free
throws with 3:41 left, but Michigan State fumbled the rebound
out of bounds and gave Maryland
another chance. A few seconds
later, Huerter hit a three-pointer
to cut it to 63-59, and Nickens
made a rebound putback to pull
Maryland within 63-61 with 1:44
remaining. Bridges missed a
three-pointer on the next possession, but Michigan State pulled
down an offensive rebound and
extended the lead back to four
after a pair of free throws from
Cassius Winston.
A few seconds later, Cowan
tried to drive the left baseline and
scoop a layup in under Michigan
State’s frontcourt. But Jackson
emphatically swatted away the
attempt — and perhaps Maryland’s hopes of making the NCAA
tournament.

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL
With a big rebound, Nweke and Little Hoyas survive a comeback by Cadets
G’TOWN PREP 59,
ST. JOHN’S 58
BY
S AMANTHA P ELL
Ike Nweke saw the ball start to
roll off the rim after senior guard
Jared Bynum missed the second
of two free throw attempts with
26.6 seconds remaining.
With No. 5 Georgetown Prep
facing a one-point deficit after
wasting a big early lead, Nweke
sensed his team’s chances starting to slip away. He elevated and
tipped the ball back to junior
guard DeJean Desire, and it eventually found its way back to
Nweke, who pump-faked twice
and converted a layup. It served
as the game-winning basket for
the Little Hoyas, who beat No. 7
St. John’s, 59-58, on Sunday afternoon in North Bethesda.
“I got kind of nervous, but I
was like, ‘Forget that,’ ” Nweke
said. “It is a game of runs, and we
got to go out there and continue
playing.”
Georgetown Prep improved to
15-4 with the nonleague win,
while St. John’s fell to 13-7. It was
a bounce-back game for the Little
Hoyas, who lost, 72-65, to Bullis
on Friday, and for Bynum, who
had scored 10 points or fewer in
his past two games.
Bynum led his team with
22 points Sunday, and Georgetown Prep Coach Ryan Eskow
joked after the game that he
thought Bynum’s improvement
was a result of going back to
wearing his Stephen Curry hightop sneakers.
“He was just playing well before in those, and then they blew
out, and we had to make do for a
bit until he got those shoes back,”
Eskow said. “But all kidding
aside, he is that good of a player,
going through a stretch where he
doesn’t play that well and then
can come back.”
Georgetown Prep led 16-0 in
the first six minutes before St.
John’s fought back to cut the lead
to 49-44 entering the fourth
quarter. St. John’s led for the first
time with five minutes left.
Fudd stars for St. John’s girls
Upon hearing star freshman
Azzi Fudd’s latest stat line, St.
John’s Coach Jonathan Scribner
only could shake his head.
“She had 36?” Scribner inquired after a 60-40 win over No.
10
Georgetown
Visitation. “That’s crazy. She’s crazy.”
Scribner, along with the rest of
those in attendance at Georgetown Prep, was treated to a 36point performance by the 15year-old, who knocked down
10 three-pointers.
It was Fudd’s third straight
game with at least 36 points.
Fudd didn’t play in the topranked Cadets’ 61-29 win over
Carroll on Friday, but she scored
41 points in each of the Cadets’
previous wins over Good Counsel
and Elizabeth Seton.
St. John’s improved to 18-1 as it
extended its winning streak to 12.
Georgetown Visitation dropped
to 15-4.
While the Cadets ended up
winning in a blowout, they started slowly and trailed 10-2 late in
the first quarter. Fudd took over
in the second, making four threepointers as the Cadets led 28-25
at the half.
“I knew that was the turning
point,” Fudd said, “and we
weren’t going to let them back in
the game.”
