DEADLIEST ATTACK
IN DECADE-LONG WAR
Bombings come as U.S.

J ULIET E ILPERIN
The Interior Department is
preparing to set aside a decadesold ban on development in federally protected wilderness areas by
pursuing a controversial proposal to build a nearly 12-mile road
through a wildlife refuge in
Alaska.
The project in the Izembek
National Wildlife Refuge has long
been a priority for Alaska officials, who say it is a “lifesaving”
link needed to connect a remote
Aleutian Islands town of 925 people with the rest of the state. The
proposal, which entails turning
federal land over to a tribal corporation, fits neatly with the Trump
administration’s broader goal of
giving more control to local communities like King Cove.
Yet environmentalists, several
native Alaskan tribes and other
critics warn that the road could
disrupt the habitats of a variety of
animals, most notably migratory
birds that use the refuge as a
crucial stopover on their marathon journeys along the Pacific
Coast of North America. And allowing the project would violate
the founding principle of federal
wilderness — areas that are to
remain pristine, off-limits to vehicles — and would set a precedent
that could endanger other refuges, opponents say.
“If they can pull this off in
Alaska, the entire Lower 48 is at
risk,” said Defenders of Wildlife

Last year, Elias Murillo was all
about the politics. He was really
into Bernie Sanders, even went
to a Sanders rally in Fairfax
County. When Sanders lost,
Murillo switched to Donald
Trump, the other guy he figured
would step up for regular people. It was all very exciting, a
show that just kept on going. For
a while, he even felt hopeful.
Now, Murillo knows Virginia is
electing a new governor in three
weeks, but he’s paid little attention.
“Everybody’s put it aside,” said
the 31-year-old graduate student
and part-time office cleaner.
“With all the hate and all the
tragedies going on, with Las Vegas
and natural disasters and threats
and the back-and-forth with the
president and North Korea, it
makes it hard to vote for governor.
It’s just become so hard to focus,
to keep up with it all.”

Trump may have bolstered kneelers’ legal position
BY
T RACY J AN
The controversy over football
players kneeling in protest during
the national anthem could have
simply remained a labor dispute
within the NFL. But then President Trump tweeted that tax
breaks should be revoked for a
league that disrespects “our Anthem, Flag and Country.”
Those words threatening government action to financially penalize the league injected a new
dimension into a roiling debate
over race, police brutality and free
speech that has gripped America’s
most successful sports business
for more than a year.
The National Football League is
expected to decide this week
whether to force players to stand
for the national anthem. Legal ex-
perts say that NFL players, as employees of private teams, do not
have First Amendment protections
against the league and would not
ordinarily be able to challenge that
decision on free-speech grounds.
But Trump’s intervention —
through last week’s tweet and its
implied threat that the government would change tax laws to
hurt the NFL — could provide the
players with a stronger legal basis
for a free-speech challenge against
the United States, some legal
scholars said. Left unchecked,
Trump as president could financially compel any number of companies and private entities to do
exactly what he wants, they said.
“The biggest wild card of all here
is the president’s tweets,” said Marc
Edelman, who teaches sports law at

some of California’s loveliest countryside, transformed now into

Iraqi forces clash
with Kurds in
move to retake
base, oil fields
BY L OVEDAY M ORRIS
AND M USTAFA S ALIM
baghdad — Clashes broke out
early Monday in northern Iraq as
Iraqi forces moved to recapture
Kurdish-held oil fields and a military base near the city of Kirkuk,
setting the stage for a battle between two U.S. allies.
After a three-day standoff, Iraqi
forces advanced into the contested province with the goal of returning to positions they held
before 2014, when they fled in the
face of an Islamic State push. The
positions have since been taken
over by Kurdish troops.
The conflict between Kurdistan and the Iraqi government
over land and oil is decades old,
but a Kurdish referendum for
independence last month inflamed the tensions. The Iraqi
government, as well as the United
States, Turkey and Iran all opposed the vote.

Sessions aiding
transgender case
A SSOCIATED P RESS
The Justice Department is
sending a federal hate crimes lawyer to Iowa to help prosecute a
man charged with fatally shooting
a transgender teenager last year.
LGBT advocates have long been
skeptical of Attorney General Jeff
Sessions’s pledge to prosecute acts
of violence against transgender
people. But the rare move, outlined in recently filed court papers, is a sign that he intends to do
so even as the Trump administration has taken other steps to erode
the rights of transgender people
broadly. The New York Times first
reported the decision Sunday.
The case involves Jorge Sanders-Galvez, 23, who is charged
with killing Kedarie Johnson, 16,
in Burlington, Iowa, in March
2016. Authorities have not disclosed a motive. But Johnson’s
relatives told local news outlets
that they think the shooting was a
hate crime.
NFL FROM A1
Baruch College in New York. “The
NFL didn’t publicly voice
opposition until baited into doing
so and being threatened with financial sanctions by the president of
the United States.”
On Sunday, seven San Francisco
49ers players knelt during the anthem before the game against the
Redskins at FedEx Field — a small
fraction of the number who protested during last week’s 49ers road
game against the Indianapolis
Colts, a demonstration that
prompted a walkout from Vice President Pence. There were scattered
protests across the league Sunday.
The players’ union has not decided whether it will challenge the NFL
if the league decides at a meeting of
a team owners, set to begin Tuesday,
to require all players to stand for the
anthem.
The American Civil Liberties
Union told The Washington Post
that it stands ready to defend, in
principle, the rights of players to
express themselves and to challenge Trump’s “unconstitutional efforts to bully the NFL into complying with his view of what is politically correct.”
If the NFL acts because of
Trump’s threat to punish the league,
players could legitimately claim
that their First Amendment rights
have been violated, said David Cole,
the ACLU’s national legal director.
“The courts have recognized that
when government officials threaten
punishment or consequences because of protected speech, that in
and of itself can chill the speech, in
violation of the First Amendment,”
Cole said, citing a 1986 case in which
a federal court sided with a challenge by Playboy Enterprises
against Edwin Meese, then the U.S.
attorney general, for sending letters
threatening to publish a list of
7-Eleven convenience stores that
sold pornography.
It could be difficult, however, to
establish a strong enough link between Trump’s threat and the NFL’s
decision to show that the league was
responding to pressure from the
president.
The aggrieved player would
have to establish that he has
standing to sue the government
and that he was disciplined as a
direct result of Trump’s actions.
The NFL could argue that it came
to the decision on its own — that it
was not reacting to Trump, but to

Seven San Francisco 49ers’ players knelt to protest issues in the
justice system before the game against the Redskins on Sunday. At a
meeting this week, NFL owners might ban such demonstrations.
its audience melting away.
The NFL did not respond to a
request from The Post for comment
on Trump’s influence, but the league
has said that Trump’s threat is misguided because the NFL relinquished its nonprofit status in 2015.
The White House later said that
Trump was referring to public subsidies for sports stadiums in his
tweet about the NFL’s “massive tax
breaks.” Federal tax breaks for stadiums go to the teams. It is unclear
how Trump could influence the
tax-exempt bonds used to build
stadiums. While the president
oversees the Internal Revenue
Service, he does not have the power
to change tax law.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last fall that he supported
players who want to see change in
society, even if he didn’t necessarily
agree with the protest.
“Players have a platform, and it’s
his right to do that,” Goodell said at
the time, in reference to Colin
Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who kicked off
the silent protests to highlight inequities in the criminal justice system.
Just weeks ago, some team owners locked arms with players after
Trump called for the firing of “son of
a bitch” players who protested. Several issued statements supporting
the players’ freedom to express
themselves and chastising Trump
for his comments.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones even knelt with his players
just before the anthem. But he has
since threatened to bench those who
“take a knee,” drawing public praise
from Trump. Jones said on his radio
show that he decided to draw a
“bright line” in part because of
Trump’s activism in the debate.
(Jones donated $1 million to
Trump’s inaugural fund.)
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who previously supported players for kneeling to protest racial inequality, told the Palm
Beach Post that Trump “has
changed that whole paradigm of
what protest is.” He said shifting
public perception now makes it
“incumbent upon the players today” to stand and salute the flag.
“The biggest wild card
of all here is the
president’s tweets.”
Marc Edelman, sports law expert
Hours after Trump’s tweet referring to tax breaks, Goodell sent a
letter to the 32 team owners asking
that they support a plan to ensure
that players stand during the anthem “to honor our flag and our
country.”
The NFL Players Association,
along with player leadership, will
attend this week’s league meetings
to work with team owners on a
possible resolution. The association
did not respond to requests for comment about possible legal actions if
the owners force players to stand.
The union could challenge a ban
on anthem protests as a possible
violation of its collective bargaining agreement, according to one

person on the players’ side who
spoke on the condition of anonymity because the owners have not
reached a decision. Trump’s pressure tactics also might pave the
way for a First Amendment challenge, the person said.
In a conference call with reporters Friday, Joe Lockhart, an NFL
spokesman, did not respond to a
question about whether the league
believes team owners would be on
sound legal footing if they require
players to stand. Lockhart said the
NFL does not yet have a firm proposal to require players to stand.
“It’s something we’ve been working
on with the players now for
months,” he said.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver
Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday that he would quit playing football rather than be forced to stand
during the anthem. The tweet,
which was in response to a question
posed by a TV producer, was quickly
deleted. Matthews, whose father is a
Marine and whose brother died in
Afghanistan in 2015, has stayed off
the field during the anthem.
Trump’s tweets calling for boycotts and firings alone are not a
direct threat to workers’ free speech
rights, legal experts say. But because
he is president, a tweetstorm criticizing a company carries more
weight and could harm a business’s
bottom line.
“The fact this is happening
strengthens the argument that a
private entity’s action following
something Trump suggests should
be deemed state action and consequently could trigger constitutional
protections,” said N. Jeremi Duru, a
professor of sports law at American
University.
Some constitutional scholars,
though, remain skeptical that
Trump’s threats could give players a
First Amendment claim against the
government.
“It takes more than a mere threat
for a presidential statement to become state action,” said Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School. “I
can imagine a case where the president’s statements constitute a deterrent, but it would be a real
stretch.”
Dershowitz said to go down this
path would pose a dangerous precedent for freedom of expression. “It
would place constraints on the ability of the president to have a bully
pulpit, whether he were a Democrat
or a Republican.”
NFL players are contract workers who are also covered by a collective bargaining agreement that
does not explicitly dictate that players must stand during the anthem.
But the contract does stipulate that
players could be terminated for engaging in “personal conduct reasonably judged by Club to adversely
affect or reflect on Club.”
“The NFL players have sacrificed
a lot of their First Amendment
rights, given the broad language the
players agreed to,” said Brad Snyder,
a Georgetown Law professor who
teaches constitutional law and
sports law.
A local union filed a complaint
last week with the National Labor
Relations Board over Jones’s anthem edict for the Cowboys. The
United Labor Unions Local 100
claimed that Jones violated federal labor law by threatening players’ jobs.
While Trump may provide players an opening to a First Amendment challenge if they are disciplined by the NFL for protesting,
some First Amendment experts
caution that a winning scenario remains unlikely.
“The government cannot pressure a business into engaging in
patriotic speech,” said Eugene Volokh, a free speech scholar at the
UCLA School of Law. “But it seems
pretty clear that whatever action
the NFL is going to take is going to
be because of the very real risk of
public reaction due to the drop off in
enthusiasm for the NFL.”
The controversy over player protests comes at a time when NFL
television ratings have dropped precipitously for a variety of reasons,
including negative narratives about
concussions and domestic violence.
Trump, during last year’s presidential campaign, directly blamed
the low ratings on Kaepernick. The
quarterback is now a free agent
and has not been signed by another
team. On Sunday, Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, confirmed
that he has filed a grievance accusing NFL teams of colluding to keep
Kaepernick out of the league.
Goodell’s move to curb the protests and tamp down anger by a
Republican president and Republican-dominated Congress are motivated by profits, Snyder said. The
NFL has a direct interest in protecting the antitrust exemption, granted through the 1961 Sports Broadcasting Act, that allows the league to
pool broadcasting rights.
“Without that, the NFL could not
survive, period. National television
revenue is its life blood,” Snyder
said. “There are huge stakes here,
and none of it has to do with the
national anthem.”

What’s unfolding nationally is
a race between vulnerability and

“It seems to me like we’re

to me like we’re not figuring out

with all of the change that we are

Carol Friedland, an associate
professor of construction management at Louisiana State University, echoes that view: “I do
not believe we’re keeping pace

She noted that Louisiana’s

cently been grasped by the scientific community. Researchers in
the Pacific Northwest have discovered that every few hundred
years, an offshore fault known as
the Cascadia Subduction Zone
ruptures in a manner that creates
not only a powerful earthquake
but also a devastating tsunami.
The odds of an 8-magnitude
earthquake or stronger somewhere in the Cascadia region are
between 30 and 40 percent during the next half-century, said
Chris Goldfinger, a paleoseismologist at Oregon State University.
This year’s rash of hurricanes or
flooding might seem unprecedented, Goldfinger said, but
such things have happened thousands of times before, back when
there weren’t any humans
around to record them.
“Wherever we are in time,
we’re always between things
most of the time, until your
number comes up,” he said.
Science and technology can
limit the hazards that develop
whenever that number comes up.
For example, satellites monitor
weather patterns in a way impossible 50 years ago — and people
have more time to evacuate before a hurricane. Scientists such
as Goldfinger can study prehistoric earthquakes and improve
the nation’s seismic hazard maps.
The Internet and smartphones
give people instant access to
emergency information. Facebook and other social media platforms helped organize rescues
when intense flooding struck
Houston. Police and fire officials
can send out alerts to tell people
to flee or take shelter from a

There is an extensive disastermanagement community that
preaches the virtues of mitigation
— essentially, planning ahead,
making preparations, strengthening defenses, improving building codes.
But mitigation is often a budget line that gets scratched out
during recessions or when a community or government agency is
facing a fiscal crunch. The Forest
Service repeatedly has exceeded
La
California was burning and
emergency management officials
in Sacramento were listing the
latest statistics about the fires,
the firefighters, the acres burned,
the fatalities, the missing people,
the number of tanker planes and
helicopters deployed, and so on.
To one side, in a suit and tie, stood
the governor, Jerry Brown.
When he took the microphone,
he offered the long view of this
extraordinary year of natural disasters in the United States.
“It’s just part of the facts of a
highly developed society, is that
you have a lot of people and a lot
of assets in the face of floods and
hurricane and fires,” Brown (D)
said at the Wednesday briefing.
“And this is what happens.”
That might have sounded detached and cerebral while in the
middle of a crisis, but it’s what
everyone in the emergency management business knows to be
true. As a people, we are consistently stepping into the path of
destruction. “Natural” disasters
have a heavily engineered element.
Recent months have delivered
a steady pounding of misery, as
flooding drowned Houston, hurricanes chewed through Florida,
the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto
Rico, and wildfires killed dozens
of people in California. If it feels
like these things are getting
worse, experts say that’s because,
in some cases, they are.
There are more people and
property vulnerable to natural
forces. And climate change
doesn’t help. Scientists know that
global warming does not create a
specific hurricane or a wildfire,
but climate change, which has
been driven significantly by the
burning of fossil fuels, primes the
pump for extreme weather.
A warmer atmosphere can
hold more moisture and produce
heavier deluges. On a hotter planet, droughts can be, and have
been, more severe. Coastal flooding gets worse as seas rise.
The wildfire season has gotten
longer in recent years, and the
wildfires are bigger, said Shawna
Legarza, director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S.
Forest Service.
“We’re seeing intense periods
of longer, hotter summers,” she
said. “We saw that this summer in
Montana where it didn’t rain for
60 days.”
Kerry Emanuel, a professor of
meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said
the kind of torrential rains that
flooded Houston are far more
likely than they were a generation ago.
“The underlying probability of
a [Hurricane] Harvey-like rainfall in Texas was maybe 1 percent
annual probability in 1990 and is
6 percent probability today because of climate change,” Emanuel said.
The recent U.S. events have
been catastrophic but hardly unimaginable. Engineers have long
warned of the flood risks in
Houston, which flooded in 2015
and 2016.
Florida, meanwhile, has historically been a magnet for hurricanes, getting hit by more than
any other state between 1851 and
2015, according to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Florida’s population has quadrupled in half a
century, to more than 20 million.
At one point in September, the
entire Florida peninsula was under a hurricane warning from
Irma, which traveled up the state
as if trying to drive up Interstate
75 and affected almost every one
of Florida’s major population
centers.
Florida’s booming coastal population might create its own herd
mentality of collective safety
rather than vulnerability. And
psychologists say it’s human nature to avoid thinking about natural disasters.
“Most of us evaluate risk based
on our gut feelings,” said Paul
Slovic, a psychology professor at
the University of Oregon. When
we rank potential threats, “natural hazards tend to be relatively
low considering the amount of
damage that they pose and their
frequency.”
Disasters such as wildfires,
hurricanes and floods have been
around forever, so we’re familiar
with them, he said. People tend to
be worried about new, unfamiliar
threats, he said — such as terrorism and the kind of mass shooting that took scores of lives in Las
Vegas.
“Mother Nature isn’t malicious,” Slovic said. “We don’t feel
she is out to get us, whereas a
terrorist is out to harm us, just for
the pure hatred, desire to harm.”

topic, everybody knows our land
is sinking,” she said.
Much of the country is settled
around coastlines, in part because historically, before the age
of railroads and airlines and interstate highways, people and
cargo tended to travel by water
and societies built up around
ports. Those coastal cities are
now exposed to storms and the
threat of sea level rise. Moreover,
port cities often have a great deal
of reclaimed land, created with
dredged material, and that can be
shaky ground — as seen in the
Marina District of San Francisco,
which was heavily damaged by
the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.
Human nature often doesn’t
help: People like a view of the
ocean. And as the governor of
California pointed out last week,
people like being close to green
places that are full of wildfire
fuel.
According to researchers at the
University of Wisconsin, in the
Lower 48 in 1990 there were
30.8 million homes in the wildland-urban interface, or WUI.
That’s pronounced “WOO-ee” by
researchers. The number increased to 43.4 million by 2010.
California added 1.1 million of
those homes.
The University of Wisconsin
researchers last week studied
three of the big California wildfires and compared them with
the WUI database. Two wildfires,
the Atlas and Adobe, fit the usual
pattern: The overwhelming majority of the homes (upward of
80 percent) within the fire perimeter were classified as being in
the wildland-urban interface.
But the Tubbs fire that devastated Santa Rosa was an anomaly.
About 71 percent of the homes in
the Tubbs fire perimeter were
classified as being in the WUI,
but most of the rest of the homes
were in solidly urban neighborhoods. That includes homes in
Coffey Park, a neighborhood
tucked behind six-lane Highway
101.
The extreme winds showed
how a wildfire can invade an
urban area. Embers can be blown
more than a mile from a hot fire.
Then, when some homes in Coffey Park ignited, they became fuel
for the urban fire, said Pam
Leschak, a program manager for
the Forest Service.
“People don’t think of their
homes as fuel for a wildfire,” she
said.
A 2004 analysis of fire danger
in Santa Rosa described the city’s
location, surrounded by forested
uplands, as “remarkably similar”
to communities that have experienced “historic urban interface
fires” in recent decades.
“In a major urban interface
fire, the extensive annual grasslands in the Santa Rosa area
would provide a receptive fuelbed for spotfires to occur resulting from long-range spotting in
heavier fuels, rapidly expanding
the fire front in more developed
areas,” the analysis said.
“My heart goes out to the
people who lost homes, and lost
friends and family. But what happened was not unforeseeable,”
Volker Radeloff, a professor of
forest ecology and management
at the University of Wisconsin,
told The Washington Post. “Almost the exact same area burned
in the 1960s.”
That was in 1964 — the Hanley
fire. It burned 52,000 acres, according to the Napa Valley Register, but destroyed only 150 structures.
There just weren’t many people or homes there then. In 1960,
there were 766 homes within the
perimeter of the Tubbs fire, compared with 6,253 in 2010, an
eightfold increase, according to
University of Wisconsin researcher H. Anu Kramer.
Emergency managers talk
about an “all-hazard” approach
to their jobs. They say people
need to be ready for whatever
might happen. Calamity can
come in many forms, often with
no warning.
Legarza, the Forest Service official, poses simple questions for
everyone.
“Are you ready?” she asks. “Do
you have your bags packed?”

Walking a fine line
Up-and-coming GOP senators such as Oklahoma’s Lankford are savvy about the risks of disavowing Trump’s remarks
BY
E LISE V IEBECK
IN TULSA
S
en. James Lankford (R-Okla.) believes some of President Trump’s recent
threats against the news
media run contrary to the
Bill of Rights.
Unlike some Republican senators, you won’t hear him question
Trump’s character or fitness for office as a result. But Lankford has
not shied away from pointing out, if
sometimes indirectly, where he and
Trump diverge.
“I see that as against the First
Amendment,” Lankford said of
Trump’s recent tweet suggesting
that TV networks’ “licenses” should
be revoked because of “Fake News”
reporting.
“I don’t want anyone, from any
party, deciding what the press can
and cannot write,” he said. “I would
also say, first things first on it, the
American people pick who is fit for
office. I don’t question his fitness for
office based on a preference on how
he communicates.”
The 49-year-old senator, a widely
respected up-and-comer within the
GOP, is a prime example of how
Republicans who disagree with
Trump but don’t want to alienate
his supporters are navigating the
president’s latest controversial
comments.
Lankford is savvy about the political risks of openly defying Trump,
and he has done so carefully.
In June, he made headlines
when he said Trump’s conversations with former FBI director
James B. Comey about an investigation into Trump’s former national
security adviser, Michael Flynn,
were “very inappropriate.”
Later that month, when Trump
referred to MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as
“Psycho Joe” and “low I.Q. Crazy
Mika,” Lankford said the tweets
didn’t “help our political or national discourse.”
But his strategy of criticizing the
president without naming him was
most apparent after Trump blamed
“both sides” for violence at the
white supremacist march in Charlottesville in August that resulted in
three deaths.
“Our words must not create confusion,” Lankford said in a lengthy
statement. “The supremacy of any
race is abhorrent, un-American and
should be condemned by everyone.
Period.”
Last week, Trump gave Lankford
and other Republicans plenty to
disagree with.
In an interview before a town
hall here, Lankford said he disagreed with Trump’s tweets Thursday suggesting that federal aid
workers pull out of Puerto Rico just
31/2 weeks after Hurricane Maria hit.
But he was careful not to criticize
Trump directly.
“Traditionally, we’ve stayed in a
disaster zone as long as needed,” he
said. “I would expect there to be
people on the ground from FEMA
for at least two years in Puerto
Rico.”
Lankford went just far enough to
indicate he’s bothered by Trump’s
frequent tweeting, particularly
when it comes to escalating threats
toward North Korea and the president’s recent criticism of Sen. Bob
Corker (R-Tenn.).
“I don’t like the rhetoric,” Lankford said. “I don’t like the way it’s
coming out in a Twitter war back
and forth.”
Still, he took pains to be evenhanded about Trump’s appeal.
“I know some people say, ‘I don’t
like [Trump’s] policies, or I don’t
like the way he communicates,’ ” he
said. “There are also other Americans that love how he communicates.”
The political reality in deep-red
Oklahoma means Lankford has to

Sen. James Lankford has neither questioned President Trump’s
character nor shied away from noting where they diverge.
be careful about crossing Trump.
The state went for Trump over
Hillary Clinton last year by 36.4
percentage points, supporting him
even more strongly than Mitt Romney, who won the state by 33.5
percentage points in 2012. A SoonerPoll quarterly survey released in
September showed that a majority
of likely voters in Oklahoma still
view Trump favorably, despite his
record-low national approval rating. Denouncing Trump could, at
some point, bring Lankford a primary challenge from his right.
Republican voters are also sensitive to how GOP members of Congress privately view the president.
Thirty-seven percent think Republican lawmakers only pretend to
like Trump in order to enact their
agenda, according to a new survey
from CBS News. Thirty-nine percent said they feel their party
doesn’t like Trump and is trying to
undercut him.
Alienating Trump’s supporters is
not the only concern: A confrontation with the president and his al-
lies could turn into a nasty public
brawl.
This just happened to Sen. Ben
Sasse (Neb.), another younger GOP
senator from a red state, who was
outraged by Trump’s latest comments on the news media. In addition to questioning networks’ licenses, Trump had said it’s “frankly
disgusting the way the press is able
to write whatever they want to
write.”
Sasse issued a public statement
asking whether Trump was recanting his oath to preserve, protect and
defend the First Amendment. His
anger garnered praise from Trump
critics on the right but also drew an
attack from Fox News host and
regular Trump defender Sean Hannity.
“One of the biggest mistakes in
my career was supporting Ben
Sasse,” Hannity tweeted. “Just useless.”
Sasse replied that it was Hannity
who had changed, “not me.”
“Some of us still believe in the
Constitution. No President should

they have only so much bandwidth and that President Trump
takes up most of the space they
allot to politics. They say they
haven’t heard much about the
governor’s race in the news, which
seems devoted mainly to the president’s doings and sayings.
As the nation’s only competitive
statewide contest this year, the Virginia race has been viewed by people in the politics business as a
crucial bellwether, an early measure of whether voters are motivated
to push back against an unpopular
president or double down on their
drive to disrupt Washington and
“drain the swamp.”
But far fewer Virginia voters are
closely following the campaign than
at similar stages in the past three
gubernatorial elections, according
to Washington Post polling.
Even those who might be assumed to be searching for a way to
send a message about a president
they consider inept or dangerous
say they are paying little attention
to the Virginia race.
Martin Cox, who works for a
defense contractor in Leesburg, is a
steady Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton last fall and considers
Trump “bombastic and noisy.” Cox,
35, usually follows campaigns for
governor closely, taking weekend
time to thoroughly research the
candidates’ views.
Not this year.
“Given Trump’s penchant for
sucking the air out of the room, this
election could be a way to send a
message that he needs to start listening to all sides and tone down
the way he speaks,” Cox said. “But I
haven’t really heard much about
the candidates and I haven’t done
my research. When I look at the
news now, it’s about Trump saying
the latest crazy thing, and that’s
where the attention focuses.”

Linda Meyers of Wythe County, Va., cheers before a campaign rally Saturday in Abingdon to support
gubernatorial hopeful Ed Gillespie. Vice President Pence was there to back the GOP candidate.
Virginia’s unusual practice of
picking a governor the year after
presidential elections has historically led to low turnouts; in 2013, a
year after 71 percent of Virginia
voters cast ballots for Barack
Obama or Mitt Romney, only
43 percent came out to the polls to
choose Democrat Terry McAuliffe
as governor over Republican Ken
Cuccinelli II.
This year’s highly polarized politics have led activists on both the
pro- and anti-Trump sides to anticipate stronger than average engagement in the governor’s race, if only
as a proxy by which voters could
express their views on the president. Both parties are eager to urge
Virginians to see the governor’s
race through a national prism;
Obama and former vice president
Joe Biden are campaigning for
Democrat Ralph Northam, and
Vice President Pence appeared
with Republican Ed Gillespie on
Saturday, as Trump may yet do later
in the month.
Voters and political experts alike
offer three main theories to explain
the indications of deflated interest:
The Trump effect, in which the
president’s big personality and ability to dominate the news steals attention that would typically gravitate toward the governor’s race.
Decreased news coverage of
the governor’s race resulting in part
from the dramatic decline in the
number of reporters covering state
news and the amount of space and
time devoted to the campaign in
newspapers and on TV.
Unusually low-key candidates
who have failed to excite voters.
Northam, the lieutenant governor,
and Gillespie, the former chairman
of the Republican National Committee, are both more moderate in
their politics than the most popular
figures in their parties. Compared
to the candidates both parties put
up for governor four years ago,
Northam and Gillespie seem like
throwbacks to a quieter, gentler
time.
“No one in their right minds
would call Ralph Northam or Ed
Gillespie firebrands,” said Pete Snyder, chairman of Gillespie’s campaign and chief executive of Disruptor Capital, an investment firm
in Alexandria. “They’re campaigning in their Virginia gentlemanly
way, and we’ve built into our modeling that we’re going to have a lowturnout election.”
The Democratic contest in the
spring primary drew unusually
strong turnout, raising Democrats’
hopes that an anti-Trump backlash
might fuel support for Northam in
November. But in past governor’s
races, Republicans have proved
themselves more likely than Democrats to vote in off-year elections.
Voters in both primaries last spring
chose milder, more moderate alternatives to more populist candidates, Democrat Tom Perriello and
Republican Corey A. Stewart.
And even some voters who have
paid little attention to this year’s
campaign say they’re in the mood
for something a bit less volatile.
“These guys are both dulleddown, watered-down versions of
play with censoring news they dislike,” he tweeted.
Before Sasse, it was Corker, the
chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who came forward among Republicans to criticize Trump.
After the president went after
him on Twitter, Corker, who is not
running for reelection, responded
by calling the White House an
“adult day-care center,” arguing
Trump’s recklessness has put the
United States “on the path to World
War III” and saying GOP senators
were privately concerned about
Trump’s fitness for office.
Lankford said he hasn’t heard
Republican senators express concerns about Trump contributing to
another potential world war and
praised the administration’s military posture toward North Korea,
specifically the role of Secretary of
Defense Jim Mattis.
“I know the rhetoric, there might
be disagreement with,” he said.
“What’s actually been done on
North Korea is pretty historic.”
In a Senate Republican Conference fraught with conflict and
showboating, Lankford is considered levelheaded. Elected in 2014 to
replace retiring Sen. Tom Coburn
(R-Okla.), the conservative Republican and member of the Intelligence
and Appropriations committees
has built a reputation as a serious
legislator.
He declined to answer directly
when asked if he would cast another vote for Senate Majority
Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“Mitch McConnell is the leader
in the Senate, period,” Lankford
said. “I anticipate he’ll be the only
one running in the days ahead.”
McConnell’s hold on the conference has steadily weakened after a
wave of legislative defeats, criticism
from the White House and most
recently, the loss of his preferred
candidate in Alabama’s special Re-
publican Senate primary runoff.
Lankford offered muted criticism of McConnell’s famously tightlipped style.
“Mitch is historically known for
keeping issues very close to the vest
and that no one else in the Senate
knows his plans. That is something
that needs to open up,” Lankford
said.
The war within the Republican
Party was far from the minds of the
people who gathered to hear Lankford speak Thursday night in a historically black area of north Tulsa,
where a prolonged and deadly race
riot targeted residents in 1921.
At the under-renovation Big 10
Ballroom, a former music venue
where talents such as Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles and Count Basie
played, Lankford let his background as a Baptist preacher show
with exhortations to the crowd.
“Has your family invited a family
of another race to your home for
dinner?” he asked the roughly 250person audience, about half white
and half black. “I’m not talking
about some structured something.
. . . Just normal conversation so that
you’re developing friendships.”
The crowd cheered a woman’s
question about universal health
care and a man’s comment that
health insurance he received
through the Affordable Care Act
saved his life.
Lankford knew his audience,
which included current and former
Democratic officials, young people
with questions about the Dream
Act and several members of Moms
Demand Action, a pro-gun control
group.
Asked at one point why Republicans hadn’t managed to enact a
health-care plan, he deadpanned:
“You’re welcome.”
Trump’s name wasn’t mentioned
once — and Lankford never
brought him up.
where the parties are now,” said
Murillo, who lives in Manassas.
“They’re not a brand name, and
maybe that’s a relief after a president who’s so vocal.”
Patrick Day, a 35-year-old teaching assistant at a Virginia Beach
elementary school, said he got
caught up in the frenzy of last year’s
election and voted for Trump mainly as a way of rejecting Clinton. “I
knew this guy was a crapshoot, and
man, what a crapshoot he is,” said
Day, who now wishes he’d cast his
ballot for the Libertarian Party candidate. “Trump’s making a great
argument that maybe Hillary
wouldn’t have been so bad.”
Despite his eagerness to shift directions, Day hasn’t paid much attention to the governor’s race. “For
me, life got busy,” he said. “People
are getting fed up with politics. It
just never ends with our president.
If he wouldn’t talk or tweet, he’d be
a lot better. There’s so much hate
going around on Facebook and everywhere else that nobody wants to
talk about politics anymore.”
Veterans of Democratic and Republican campaigns alike say they
are seeing voters step back from the
battlefield.
“As people become more and
more disillusioned with politics,
they tune it out,” said Mo
Elleithee, a longtime Virginia
Democratic strategist and executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and
Public Service. “A lot of people are
just fed up and tired of everything,
whatever side they’re on.”
“The media coverage of all
things Trump virtually blocks out
the sun for anybody else,” he said.
“Our politics are becoming hypernationalized and celebrity-driven.
It’s hard for people who want to be
informed to get the same access to
information they once had.”
Many news organizations in the
state — and especially the midsize
newspapers and TV stations that in
previous cycles had full-time political reporters based in Richmond —
have cut their staffs sharply as advertising dollars have shifted away
from traditional news outlets and
toward social media.
Nationwide, the number of reporters covering state houses
plummeted by 35 percent from
2003 to 2014, according to the Pew
Research Center. The trend has
continued since then, as has the
shrinking of overall staffing and
space for news in many papers.
“You had reporters fighting over
desk space in the Capitol press
room,” said Bob Lewis, who covered
Virginia politics for the Associated
Press through the terms of five governors and now works at McGuire
Woods, a law firm in Richmond.
“Now, there’s nobody there. As
newspapers and TV stations cut
back, there was less money for reporters to travel around the state
doing profiles of candidates or just
talking to voters.”
The result, some say, is a campaign that gets less coverage than
many Virginia voters are accustomed to seeing. “You had a press
corps that was steeped in historical
knowledge of Virginia and its politics,” Elleithee said. “You had multiple reporters from each paper writing about the candidates and issues.
Most of the local and state news
infrastructure has been decimated.”
The remaining reporters still
cover the campaign, but “their stories just don’t gain much traction,”
said Jeff South, a journalism professor at Virginia Commonwealth
University who directs the school’s
Capital News Service, through
which student reporters cover state
politics. “The amount of coverage
has been at least as pervasive as in
past years, but voters seem too exhausted to pay attention. They’re so
jaded by what’s happening in
Washington that that carries over
to their views of the state election.”
Jill Mulhall, a freelance editor
who lives in Bristow in Prince William County, usually relies on local
news outlets such as InsideNoVa.com and the Gainesville
Times, as well as Facebook, to learn
about the candidates. But this year,
she said, “the governor’s race is not
getting the headlines like it used to.
And there’s not as much in the mail
or people knocking at the door.”
Mulhall, 47, is a Democrat and
plans to vote for Northam, but “he
doesn’t inspire me,” she said. “I don’t
have reservations about his competence, but I get the sense that both
he and Gillespie are lying low. I
guess it’s harder to grab attention
with Trump in the White House:
When one person fills up the whole
room, there isn’t a lot of space left
over.”

Trump aides say U.S. word still good after decision on Iran deal
BY A NNE G EARAN
AND J OHN W AGNER
The United States will remain a
trustworthy international partner,
administration national security
aides said Sunday, offering reassurances after allies and members of
Congress criticized President
Trump for deciding to alter terms
for participation in the international nuclear deal with Iran.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson
and others dismissed questions
about whether the United States is
sending a message to North Korea,
for example, that undermines any
deal that nation might contemplate
over its own nuclear program.
“I think what North Korea
should take away from this decision
is that the United States will expect
a very demanding agreement with
North Korea, one that is very binding and achieves the objectives, not
just of the United States but the
policy objectives of China and other
neighbors,” Tillerson said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the
Union.”
That shared goal, he said, is to rid
the Korean Peninsula of nuclear
weapons.
“We intend to be very demanding
in that agreement,” Tillerson said.
“And if we achieve that, then there
will be nothing to walk away from.”
Trump on Friday set further conditions on U.S. participation in the
landmark 2015 nuclear agreement
with Iran and five other nations and
threatened to walk away if his concerns are not met. His decision
threatens but doesn’t undo a signature foreign policy priority of President Barack Obama that Trump has
called “an embarrassment.”
European allies have warned
that they will not follow suit if the
United States abrogates the deal.
Although Trump did not kill the
agreement outright, as he had frequently threatened to do, the current limbo is not much better from
the perspective of several key allies.
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Saturday that
Trump’s action increases the threat
of war near Europe and risks a spillover effect for other conflicts.
“My big concern is that what is
happening in Iran or with Iran from
the U.S. perspective will not remain
an Iranian issue, but many others in
the world will consider whether
they themselves should acquire nuclear weapons, too, given that such
agreements are being destroyed,”
Gabriel said.
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador
to the United Nations, was asked
what incentive North Korean leader
Kim Jong Un would have to cut a
deal now. Such an agreement has
long been presumed to require
American leadership and backing,
since Kim considers Washington
his principal enemy. Many U.S. officials believe Kim’s rapidly advancing nuclear weapons capability is
aimed at preventing a U.S. attack or
increasing Kim’s leverage in an
eventual international negotiation.
“The whole reason we are looking at this Iran agreement is because of North Korea,” Haley said on
NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said that the
president’s threat to cancel the Iran
deal “set out a marker” for the United States and its allies to fix what he
called “a weak deal that is being
weakly monitored.”
“The president has made clear
that he will not permit this deal to
provide cover for what we know is a
horrible regime to develop a nuclear weapon,” McMaster said during an appearance on “Fox News
Sunday.”
“One of the real problems with
this deal is we can’t really say with
confidence that they’re complying,”
McMaster said, accusing Iran of
having “walked up to the line” and
“crossed the line several times in
terms of the restrictions.”
Tillerson said Trump’s action on
Iran is a “signal” to Congress and the
other signers of the agreement, including Iran.
“If we don’t see improvement,
there is no sense in staying in, and
he has every intention of walking
out,” he said on CBS’s “Face The
Nation.” The action Friday puts the
onus on Congress to decide what to
do next, including attempting to
add provisions that would satisfy
U.S. concerns, Tillerson said.
A separate new agreement
among the international parties to
the deal could “lay alongside” the
existing 2015 pact, Tillerson said. He
dismissed criticism that Trump’s
opposition to the Iran deal as it
stands would spoil chances for a
similar international compact to
address North Korea’s nuclear program.
“It would be pretty rich” for
North Korea to doubt U.S. trustworthiness, Tillerson said with a smile.
He said the diplomatic approach he
is pursuing “will continue until the
first bomb is dropped.”
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.)
said Trump is taking the right approach to Iran and a deal the senator said he agrees is deeply flawed.
“The president ran on the idea
that this was a bad deal for America,
and he won,” Graham said.
He said he could support the approach favored by Sens. Bob Corker
(R-Tenn.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
to add “triggers” for Iranian behavior that would lead to a return of U.S.
sanctions suspended under the
deal. That would require legislation,
and some Democrats say it appears
to be only a precursor to an eventual
U.S. withdrawal from the deal.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a
member of the Foreign Relations
Committee, said it is “an absolute
fantasy” to believe that Iran deal
negotiations will be reopened.
“The Iranians will not renegotiate it, and neither will the Europeans,” Murphy said on “Fox News
Sunday.” “And so if we were to pull
out of this agreement, as the president is threatening, Iran would get
everything they want. They would
be able to restart their nuclear program, because we would be in violation of the deal. The Europeans
would continue to grant them sanc-
tions relief, their economy would
continue to grow and they would
look like the victim in the situation.”
Murphy also said that Iran is
complying with the agreement.
“The White House is required to
tell Congress if they are not, and
they’ve submitted absolutely no
submissions,” he said.
Hillary Clinton sharply criticized
Trump on Sunday, arguing that his
declaration “says America’s word is
not good.”
Appearing on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” the former Democratic
presidential candidate and former
secretary of state noted that others
in Trump’s administration had advised against the move and that
Trump was decertifying a deal “in
the absence of evidence that Iran is
not complying.”
“I know that Iran plays a game of
aggressiveness and undermining of
our interests and the interests in the
region — there’s no argument about
that,” Clinton said. “But my point
has been and remains, I would
much rather deal with Iran’s other
bad behavior while not worrying at
this moment about their nuclear
program getting up and going
again. And why on earth would we
want two nuclear challenges in Iran
and North Korea at the same time?”

The World
S. Sudan’s leader is defiant amid disaster
Salva Kiir, ahead of a visit from the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., shrugs off the possibility of losing American aid
BY K EVIN S IEFF
IN JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN
P
resident Salva Kiir has presided over
the world’s youngest nation as it descended into civil war, famine and a
historic refugee crisis.
The United Nations says his military is responsible for ethnic cleansing. The
United States has imposed sanctions on some of
his closest associates.
But in a rare interview, Kiir presented himself
as a defiant leader who has been maligned, a
man too preoccupied with waging war to consider any possible mistakes, a onetime fan of
Donald Trump who thinks America should
worry about human rights abuses on its own
soil.
“I did not do anything that can make me
regret,” he said Thursday in his office in the
country’s military headquarters, wearing the
cowboy hat he received as a gift from George
W. Bush.
The Trump administration is so worried
about South Sudan’s disastrous situation that
it is sending Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador
to the United Nations, to the country later this
month. She has criticized its government for
perpetrating a conflict that has caused a
massive hunger crisis. Other administration
officials have suggested that U.S. aid to South
Sudan could be withdrawn.
Kiir, 66, devoted much of his life to fighting
for independence for southern Sudan, which is
predominantly Christian and long complained
of persecution by the mostly Arab Muslim north.
When the south became its own nation in 2011,
thanks largely to U.S. assistance, he was named
president of a shaky coalition government,
propped up by billions of dollars in aid.
That coalition collapsed in late 2013, as a
clash between Kiir and his first vice president,
Riek Machar, widened into ethnic-based fighting. A peace deal was signed in 2014, but it
disintegrated.
Between 50,000 and 300,000 people have
been killed in the war, according to the African
Union. It is now, by many measures, the worst
humanitarian crisis on the continent. A third of
South Sudan’s population is displaced internally
or living in refugee camps abroad.
While there have been abuses on both sides,
human rights groups have documented many
incidents in which government troops from
Kiir’s Dinka tribe massacred and raped civilians from Machar’s Nuer tribe.
“Kiir is the heart of the problem,” said
Princeton Lyman, a former U.S. envoy to Sudan
and South Sudan.
Yet even as the United States threatens to
withdraw aid, Kiir has shown no sign of contrition and no intention to reform.
Haley, the highest-ranking administration
official to visit Africa, called on the U.N. Security
Council in April to “tell the South Sudanese
government that we are not going to put up with
this anymore.”
In The Post interview, Kiir brushed off the
U.S. criticism, describing what he called a vast
conspiracy against his government. He said
American officials had been fed misinformation by Machar. He said that reports about the
refugee situation were overblown and that
people had fled because they were “told by the
social media.” He said an American news
photographer who was killed by government
troops in August was “fighting on behalf of the
rebels.”
And he lashed out against what he considered
human rights abuses in the United States.
“People are being killed on the roads,” he said in
an apparent reference to police shootings.
He said innocent American children were
targeted in gun violence.
“Whoever have you found shooting the
schoolchildren on the bus here in South Sudan?
It is happening in America,” he said in English,
without specifying what incident he was alluding to.
This year, his country received $730 million
in U.S. funding — almost all of it humanitari-

an relief. South Sudan’s economy is almost
nonexistent, and annual inflation was
370 percent at the start of 2017, according to
the International Monetary Fund. But Kiir
shrugged off American threats to end assistance.
“The money belongs to them, and whoever
they think they should give their money to, it is
their right,” he said.
“It is not me as a person that will be harmed,
but it harms the people of South Sudan, the poor
people who are not able to help themselves,” he
added.
Kiir said he had supported Trump during the
campaign because he was a “man of action” who
would “put what was wrong right.”
Now, Washington appears intent on pressuring him to change course. Last month, the
President Salva Kiir
devoted much of his
life to fighting for
independence for
southern Sudan,
which is mostly
Christian and long
complained of
persecution by the
mostly Arab
Muslim north. The
United States once
considered him the
leader of a morally
just fight for
independence.
Treasury Department sanctioned three of his
close associates, accusing them of committing
human rights abuses and derailing South
Sudan’s peace process.
Privately, U.S. officials have told members of
Kiir’s government that his refusal to accept any
responsibility for the conflict is unlikely to go
over well with Haley. But experts say Kiir has
been conditioned by years of receiving international assistance despite the allegations against
his government.
“There are no costs to Salva and his government. They get reports written that say ‘This guy
did a bad thing.’ But so far there have been no
repercussions. That dynamic, I believe, is about
to change, as the U.S. is looking at seriously
ramping up financial pressures on those responsible for mass atrocities and grand corruption,”
said John Prendergast, founder of the Enough
Project, an anti-genocide group.
In the interview with The Post, Kiir justified
his actions in the war.
“You either defend yourself or you are swept
away,” he said.
Over the past two years, the allegations of
atrocities by his military have mounted.
Amnesty International said that soldiers and
allied militias “hunted down and killed civilians,
raped and abducted women” in central Leer
county in 2015. The United Nations documented
114 killings by pro-government forces in Yei, 90
miles southwest of Juba, from late 2016 to early
2017. During roughly the same period, according
to Human Rights Watch, there were “at least 47
unlawful killings by government soldiers” in
southern Kajo Keji county.
Kiir’s explanation for much of the violence is
that rebels wearing stolen military uniforms are
committing human rights abuses.
“The uniform you have seen outside here with
the soldiers is everywhere in the bush and the
guns you have seen outside here, they are also
outside in the bush with those rebels. These are
criminals who pretend to be SPLA,” he said,
referring to the Sudan People’s Liberation Army,
the country’s military.
Asked if his troops have made any mistakes
during the war, he replied, “I don’t remember.”
Kiir and his government have also been
accused of impeding humanitarian groups trying to distribute food and medical supplies,
particularly to places occupied by members of
the Nuer tribe, another claim he denies.
“The people that are targeted by the U.N. to be
given this assistance are my people. Why would I
deny them food?” he said.
The war Kiir is waging now has become
enormously complex. In addition to the fight
between the government and the opposition,
there are a slew of localized tribal conflicts, often
fueled by cattle raiding and revenge killings.
Some analysts wonder whether a national peace
deal — a long shot at the moment — would stem
the intense violence attached to local and ethnic
rivalries.
In the United States, Kiir was once considered the leader of a morally just fight for
independence. He was a guest in Bush’s Oval
Office, and a hero to American evangelicals
who saw him as representing marginalized
Christians defending themselves against Sudan’s Muslim north.
But the conflict in Sudan was always more
complex than that, and during the immense
violence, Kiir grew accustomed to watching his
people die a “slow death.”
He was born in then-Sudan’s Bahr el-Ghazal
region, the son of pastoralists. As a young man,
he joined southern Sudan’s resistance movement.
The civil war between southern and northern Sudan was brutal. Around 250,000 southern Sudanese died in a 1988 famine, caused in
part by fighters’ reluctance to allow aid to
reach their rivals. Among those who starved
were two of Kiir’s sister’s children. Devastated
by the loss, she committed suicide.
Kiir said he thinks about her death, but he
showed little emotion in discussing it. For
decades, he said, he has buried victims of the
war.
“I always think whoever died from my family
died like any other martyrs who died in South
Sudan,” he said.
He added: “If I was to be emotional, I might
not have succeeded in prosecuting the war.”
Kiir was thrust into statecraft when the leader
and hero of the resistance, John Garang, lost his
life in a helicopter crash in 2005.
Asked what Garang — whose portrait is still
omnipresent here — might think of the current
state of the country, Kiir responded: “His feelings would be with him. Nobody controls the
feeling of another.”
And then he looked at the reporter questioning him.
“Even you yourself,” he said. “With me now,
you will not know what I am feeling.”

Police foil potentially
massive suicide attack
Police arrested the driver of a
truck carrying three tons of
explosives in what appeared to be
an attempted suicide bombing in
a section of the Afghan capital
near an engineering university,
officials said Sunday.
The driver of the small cargo
truck was approaching a security
checkpoint near Kabul
Polytechnic University just before
midnight Saturday and ignored
orders to stop, officials said.
Authorities said police at the
checkpoint then fired at the truck,
injuring the driver. They found 30
buckets filled with ammonium
nitrate hidden beneath boxes of
tomatoes in the truck’s cargo hold.
Kabul has been on high alert
since a suicide bombing in May
near the German Embassy killed
scores and injured several
hundred. Investigators linked that
attack to the Haqqani network, an
offshoot of the Taliban.
“This could have been a
massive suicide attack if it was not
paralyzed,” Mohamed Salem
Almas, head of criminal
investigations for the Kabul
police, said of the Saturday night
arrest.
In the same area of the city,
investigators recently discovered
a factory that they said was being
used by the Taliban to make land
mines and suicide vests.

Right-wing parties make major gains in Austrian vote
Conservative one wins
decisively in election that
hinged on immigration
BY G RIFF W ITTE
AND L UISA B ECK
berlin — Austria became the
latest European country to take a
sharp turn right on Sunday, with
the conservative People’s Party
riding a hard-line position on
immigration to victory in national elections and likely to form a
government with a nationalist
party that has long advocated for
an even tougher stance.
The result puts the 31-year-old
foreign minister and People’s Party leader, Sebastian Kurz, in line
to become Austria’s next chancellor after a campaign in which he
emphasized the need to strengthen border controls, reduce caps
on refugees and slash benefits for
newcomers.
Much of Kurz’s rhetoric echoed
positions long held by the Freedom Party, which for decades has
anchored the far right of politics in this nation of 8.7 million.
With nearly all results counted
Sunday night, the Freedom Party
was in third place at 26 percent,
but still battling for second with
the ruling Social Democrats, who
had 26.9 percent. The People’s
Party was the decisive winner, at
31.6 percent
“I’ll fight with all my strength
LISI NIESNER/BLOOMBERG NEWS
Sebastian Kurz, the 31-year-old foreign minister and People’s Party
leader, is in line to become the next chancellor of Austria.
for change in this country,” Kurz
told cheering supporters — many
clad in turquoise, the color he
adopted to signal a new era for
the People’s Party after decades of
identification
with
black.
“There’s a lot to do.”
Two years after Austria was
among the more welcoming nations in Europe for refugees fleeing en masse across the continent, the results revealed just
how sour public sentiment has
turned. Hundreds of thousands
of people fleeing war, oppression
and poverty passed through the
central European nation on their
way to destinations farther north
and west in late 2015 and early
2016. Tens of thousands stayed in
the country and applied for asylum protection.
“Austrians are fearful because
of immigration and the refugee
crisis,” said Reinhard Heinisch, a
political scientist at the University of Salzburg. “Kurz addressed
these fears, and played with these
fears.”
As in other elections across
Europe this year, the far right
made significant progress, but
not enough to triumph.
In France this spring, National
Front leader Marine Le Pen made
it to the final round of the presidential election. Just last month,
the Alternative for Germany Party took 13 percent of the vote —
putting a far-right party in the
German Parliament for the first
time in more than half a century.
But unlike in those nations, in
Austria the far right is expected
to become part of the government. Kurz will need a coalition
partner to form a majority in the
parliament, and the Freedom
Party is considered the most likely option.
If he goes that route, it would
end a “grand coalition” between
Austria’s center left and center
right that has led the country for
the past decade, and for much of
its modern history.
The Freedom Party, whose first
leader was a former SS officer and
whose current leader was a onetime neo-Nazi youth activist, has
been in government before; it
teamed with the People’s Party for
five years starting in 2000. At the
time, the European Union imposed sanctions against Austria
to show its displeasure with a
government that included a party
long relegated to the fringe.
But in a measure of how far
Europe has shifted to the right,
no one is contemplating sanctions today.
Freedom Party backers were in
a jubilant mood Sunday night,
eating schnitzel, dancing to Austrian folk music and waving flags
at the party’s election-night celebration. Heinz-Christian Strache, the party leader, said the
results proved that “our message
has reached the mainstream.”
That was evident not only in
the party’s results, but also in the
influence that it had over its
rivals, who adopted many of the
party’s positions as their own.
Kurz, who would be the world’s
youngest head of government,
frequently boasted that as foreign
minister he had closed the Balkan
route for asylum seekers in the
spring of 2016 by shutting Austrian borders to new arrivals. He has
promised to pressure Europe to
do the same now with the central
Mediterranean route, the main
path for migrants and refugees
seeking to enter the continent.
“If there’s one topic that really
dominated the campaign, it’s migration and integration,” said Sylvia Kritzinger, a political analyst
at the University of Vienna. “Especially with Kurz, it always came
back to immigration. We had very
little discussion of the issues beyond that.”
The Social Democrats, the traditional party of the center left,
had attempted to shift the debate
onto friendlier terrain by emphasizing the robust health of the
economy during their decade in
government.
The party on Sunday appeared
to have avoided the distant thirdplace finish that some polls had
projected, with its tenuous hold
on second place representing a
modest surprise.
But Sunday’s result is almost
certain to end the chancellorship
of incumbent Christian Kern.
In an interview with broadcasters Sunday evening, he said
the Social Democrats were “not
thrilled with this result, but we
can live with it.” He ascribed the
party’s challenges to forces that
are buffeting center-left parties
across the West.
“We’ve seen a move to the right
in this election. It’s not a time that
favors social democrats,” he said.
“We’ve seen that in all of Europe.”
Kern hinted that the party
would be willing to serve in a
coalition government. But analysts consider such a possibility
unlikely given the rightward tilt
of the electorate — as well as the
bad blood that developed between the two establishment
parties after a scandal involving fake Facebook pages that
smeared Kurz and were attributed to a Social Democratic
operative.
The elevation of Kurz to chancellor would put another young
and charismatic leader at the
helm of a European government,
after the election of 39-year-old
Emmanuel Macron in France.
Kurz, though ideologically to
the right of Macron, modeled
much of his campaign after the
Frenchman’s. The Austrian politician styled his run for the nation’s
highest office as a movement, not
a conventional election, and personalized his party, informally
renaming it “the Sebastian Kurz
List.”
Kritzinger said Kurz’s opponents were flummoxed by how to
counteract the charismatic People’s Party leader, who took the
reins in the party this year and
promptly remade it as his own.
“From a rhetoric perspective,
he’s an absolute talent,” Kritzinger said. “The other parties didn’t
know how to deal with him.”

Somalia faces grim milestone in terrorist blasts killing 276
SOMALIA FROM A1
A large swath of a city block appeared wiped out, and a tower of
charred automobiles could be seen
at the bombing site. A BBC reporter said people were trapped under
the rubble of the Safari Hotel.
Throughout Sunday, bodies were
carried from the rubble.
Somalia’s president, Mohamed
Abdullahi Mohamed, declared
three days of national mourning.
The government blamed the carnage on al-Shabab, but the group
has not claimed responsibility.
“Today’s horrific attack proves
our enemy would stop at nothing to
cause our people pain and suffering.
Let’s unite against terror,” Mohamed said on Twitter.
Medical workers spoke about
the scale of the attack, which
quickly overwhelmed the city’s
few hospitals.
“Today is the worst day of my life.
We are overwhelmed by the high
number of the casualties. I have
been working at this hospital for
more than seven years, and I never
saw or heard this number of deaths,’’
said Ahmed Osman, a nurse in Mogadishu’s Medina Hospital, where
many of the dead and wounded
were taken.
The International Federation of
Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said five of its volunteers were
among the dead. One volunteer
who survived, Abdiasis Mohamed,
said he and his friends were drinking tea when one of the bombs exploded. When he regained consciousness, he said, he was covered
in blood and several of his friends
had been “burned to death.”
“Thank God I am fine,” he said.
Two of Hawo Ahmed’s sons, both
shopkeepers, were killed.
“They came home for lunch, and
we had lunch together,” she said.
“They were innocent and the breadwinners for my family.”
Last year, she said, her husband
was killed in an attack.
Somalia has been battling al-Sha-
FARAH ABDI WARSAMEH/ASSOCIATED PRESS

bab insurgents since 2007, with the
help of 22,000 troops from the African Union and a U.S. counterterrorism campaign that has expanded
under President Trump.
For years, drone strikes were the
centerpiece of the U.S. military
strategy, carried out with the expectation that the militant group would
dissolve if its leadership was vanquished. That has not happened.
Although the U.S. and African
Union operations forced insurgents
from territory they once controlled,
they have not curbed al-Shabab’s
ability to launch deadly and frequent attacks in Mogadishu, mostly
targeting restaurants, hotels and
places where officials gather.
Earlier this year, the White House
loosened the rules governing U.S.
operations in the country, declaring
parts of Somalia to be an “area of
active hostilities.”
A one-star general was assigned
to coordinate operations from a
compound within Mogadishu’s airport. The small, elite teams of U.S.
Special Operations forces in Somalia were augmented with conven-
tional Army troops who provide a
variety of training for the Somali
forces.
The Pentagon refuses to say precisely how many Americans are deployed to Somalia — believed to be a
few hundred at most — but Defense
Secretary Jim Mattis indicated earlier this year that the Trump administration would consider sending
more personnel if asked by the Somali president.
It’s unlikely, though, that the
weekend’s attack will result in any
substantial American military
buildup. As in other unstable parts
of Africa, the U.S. strategy in Somalia has been to support allied forces
by sharing intelligence, providing
training and equipment, and conducting precision airstrikes — but
not doing the fighting for them.
Mattis has characterized the objective in Somalia as “buying time”
for the Somali government to assemble its own security forces. Still,
the mission there remains dangerous. In May, a Navy SEAL was killed
and two other U.S. commandos
were wounded during a battle with
militants west of Mogadishu. It
marked the first U.S. combat death
in Somalia since the early 1990s.
A number of officials were
killed in Saturday’s attack, including Mohamoud Elmi, the director
general at the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.
In 2016, al-Shabab was the
deadliest terrorist group in Africa,
according to the Armed Conflict
Location and Event Dataset, killing 4,281 people.
Somalia has struggled to maintain a stable government or a defense force capable of challenging
the Islamist militants. Last week,
both the defense minister and the
army chief resigned for reasons that
remain unclear. Many analysts argue that Somalia’s undeveloped security sector has made it easy for
al-Shabab to penetrate the country’s largest city with thousands of
pounds of explosives.
Earlier this year, the country teetered on the brink of famine, in large
part because of the fighting’s effect
on agriculture and the distribution
of humanitarian aid.
In the wake of Saturday’s attacks, one Mogadishu ambulance
service underscored the scale of
the bloodshed.
“In our 10 year experience as the
first responder in Mogadishu, we
haven’t seen anything like this,”
Aamin Ambulance said on Twitter.
In a statement, the U.S. Mission
to Somalia called the bombings
“cowardly attacks” that “reinvigorate the commitment of the United
States to assist our Somali and African Union partners to combat the
scourge of terrorism.”
As rescue teams continued
their work at the site of the bombing, residents of Mogadishu took
to the streets to protest al-Shabab,
shouting, “We don’t want bloodthirsty elements.”

Routed opposition decries ‘illegalities’ in Venezuela’s state elections
BY R ACHELLE K RYGIER
AND A NTHONY F AIOLA
caracas, venezuela — Venezuela’s electoral council declared
pro-government candidates the
overwhelming winners in Sunday’s key state elections, even
though the opposition — which
opinion polls had shown poised
for widespread victories — cast
serious doubt on the results.
In Sunday’s vote to elect the
governors in all 23 Venezuelan
states, the pro-government electoral council said government
candidates had won in 17 states,
with the opposition capturing five
and one remaining too close to
call. But opposition officials, who
had predicted an almost inverse
outcome, suggested possible
fraud — saying they would not
recognize the results while calling
for an independent audit.
“The results don’t reflect reality,” said Gerardo Blyde, head of the
opposition coalition’s campaign.
“Venezuela and the world won’t
buy it. The government can’t explain the results.”
The results could spark a fresh
round of international condemnation and further sanctions on
the authoritative government of
President Nicolás Maduro. After a
vote in July creating a pro-government super-congress loyal to Maduro that was widely decried as
fraud, President Trump labeled
Venezuela a dictatorship and increased sanctions against Maduro
and his government while warning that more could come. European Union nations also are considering sanctions.
Late Sunday, however, Maduro
hailed the results not only as a
victory for his socialists, but as
proof of his government’s commitment to democracy.
“This is one more victory,” he
said on state TV. “The path is
democracy. The path is elections
— not violence, not economic
war.”
The stakes were dampened by
Maduro’s insistence that all win-
ners would serve under the authority of his new Constituent Assembly, an all-powerful national
legislature run by some of his
closest allies. But it was nevertheless seen as a key test of Maduro’s
willingness to give space to the
opposition.
Earlier in the day, Venezuelans
went to the polls with the opposition decrying “obstacles and illegalities.” The government put the
turnout at a relatively high 61 percent — a level at which key pollsters had predicted the opposition
would win sweeping victories.
Government officials issued thinly veiled threats against crying
fraud.
“If someone in the opposition
decides to cry fraud in this election, he disappears as a political
option in Venezuela forever,” said
Jorge Rodríguez, a senior Maduro
backer and mayor of the capital’s
Libertador district. “I just say that
as advice.” Opposition officials
campaigned hard for seats, even
as they accused the government of
sabotage.
Earlier Sunday, Blyde said
many voting centers had opened
late because of tardy governmentappointed witnesses. Pro-government messages, he said, were still
appearing on state TV in violation
of election laws.
In Maracaibo, Venezuela’s second-largest city, witnesses said on
social media that groups of
masked men broke car windows,
stole purses and threw molotov
cocktails at an opposition
tent. Government officials did not
mention those alleged attacks, but
said that at least 26 “electoral
crimes” had been committed, including some by people who tried
to damage voting machines.
The pro-government National
Electoral Council last week
abruptly decided to relocate hundreds of voting centers — mostly
in opposition districts — for “security reasons.” On Sunday, many
voters arrived to find that their
polling stations had been moved
to poor, often pro-government
neighborhoods, where some voters feared to go.
At one center located at a school
in northeast Caracas, a sign informed voters that they were now
registered to cast ballots in a nearby slum. “They put up this obstacle so that we’ll give up and go
back home,” said Ignacio Sánchez,
a businessman who lives nearby.
Sánchez was sitting with a dozen neighbors, waiting for buses
that the opposition promised to
send to take them to their new
polling place.
One man said his adult children
had returned home because they
didn’t want to go through the
trouble of voting elsewhere. “But
that’s what they want,” said a 74year-old neighbor, María de Alba.
“Voting is resisting.”
Yet the opposition also faced a
hurdle in the form of anti-government Venezuelans who felt that
opposition leaders should have
boycotted the state elections, as
they did the July vote.
In Plaza Francia, the center of
the opposition protests that shook
Venezuela earlier this year and in
which more than 100 people died,
Janeth Hernández, a woman in
her 50s, sat on a park bench. She
said she was abstaining.
“I’m not going to vote,” Hernández said. “If you vote, you contradict yourself. So many deaths in
protests, all for an election? All the
politicians are the same here. Liars. If I vote for the opposition, the
government isn’t going to let them
work. If I vote for the government,
they’re going to rob money and do
nothing. I see no solution here.”
After casting their ballots, some
voters proceeded to a tent where
they could register to claim allocations of free food. Pro-government
neighborhood activists have suggested a link between voting and
government aid — a considerable
incentive in a nation suffering
from a brutal economic crisis that
has led to severe shortages.

AHMAD AL-RUBAYE/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE/GETTY IMAGES
Iraqi troops drive toward positions occupied by Kurdish forces on Saturday near Kirkuk, Iraq.
Iraq land dispute poses dilemma for U.S.
IRAQ FROM A1
States, which has trained and
equipped the advancing Iraqi
troops, which include elite counterterrorism forces, and the Kurdish peshmerga on the other side.
But the Iraqi side is also backed
up by Shiite militia forces close to
Iran, at a time when the Trump
administration has been vocal
about curbing Iranian influence
in the region, having sanctioned
Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary
Guard Corps last week.
Iraqi forces said they were under instructions to avoid violence,
but Kirkuk residents said that
gunfire and explosions could be
heard in the city in the early hours
of the morning. Kurdish media
reported that thousands of Kurdish volunteer fighters had rushed
to take up arms.
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider
al-Abadi had ordered his forces to
“protect all citizens” as they retake positions, state television reported.
Kurdish forces took full control
of the ethnically and religiously
mixed city of Kirkuk after the
Iraqi military fled from large
swaths of northern Iraq in 2014 in
the face of an Islamic State push.
It also seized oil fields formerly
run by Baghdad that pump hundreds of thousands of barrels of
oil per day. Now Iraq wants that
ground back.
Army, police and forces from
Iraq’s popular mobilization units,
which include the Iran-backed
militias, have massed in the area,
as Kurdish forces furiously dug
defenses. Humvees and firing positions protected by sandbags
were stationed on the main highway from Baghdad to Kirkuk.
Bulldozers dragged earth to the
road to build blockades to stop
armored convoys from advancing. Bridges were blocked.
As Kurdish authorities warned
they were about attack, Abadi
tried to defuse tension, taking to
Twitter to assure that Iraqi forces
“cannot and will not attack our
citizens.” Iraqi commanders initially dismissed troop movements
as routine deployments aimed at
securing nearby Hawija, recently
recaptured from Islamic State
militants.
But Shiite militia leaders close
to Iran said that they were there to
move into the province and had
presented a list of demands to
Kurdish Peshmerga commanders.
Those demands included a
Kurdish withdrawal from positions including the city’s K1-military base and oil fields.
“The orders are to surround K1
and oil fields and stop and call on
the Kurdish forces to retreat,” said
a counterterrorism officer who
declined to be named because of
the sensitivity of the topic. “There
are strict orders to avoid violence.” But militia commanders
took a more combative tone. Anyone who fights Iraqi forces is “the
same as ISIS,” said Karim al-Nuri,
a spokesman for Iraq’s mobilization units. State television said
that counterterrorism forces, the
Entertain
in your
new
9th Division of the Iraqi army and
federal police forces had taken
“large areas” of the province without a fight. It said popular mobilization units took positions “outside Kirkuk.”
Earlier in the day Col. Ryan
Dillon, a U.S. military spokesman
in Baghdad had described the
situation as “stable” but said the
“heightened tension” was distracting from the fight against
Islamic State militants.
After recapturing the city of
Hawija, Iraqi forces were supposed to deploy to the borders
with Syria to stamp out the last
pockets controlled by Islamic
State militants.
The confrontation with Baghdad has also brought out splits
among the Kurds. Earlier in the
day, senior Kurdish officials from
its two main parties met in the
town of Dukan to discuss how to
proceed in negotiations with
Baghdad. The Patriotic Union of
Kurdistan, or PUK, which has
closer ties to Iran and Baghdad,
has been more open to agreeing to
a deal for Baghdad to enter key
sites, in contrast to the ruling
Kurdistan Democratic Party.
Given the financial sanctions
announced against the IRGC, “it’s
comical really,” said a Kurdish
official who declined to be named
when criticizing an ally. “If you
want to push back Iranian influence, don’t stay quiet. In the Middle East silence is taken as a sign
of weakness.”

ACA’s fate tied to budget discussions
ADDICTION IN AMERICA
A NATION RESPONDS
Democrats to use talks as
leverage on subsidies
BY
P AUL K ANE
Democrats accused President
Trump of trying to sabotage the
nation’s
health-care
system
through his decision to halt payments to insurers meant to shore
up the system, while Republicans
countered Sunday that Trump is
just pushing for a hard bargain.
Trump’s decision, announced
Friday after months of criticizing
the payments as an insurance industry bailout, will throw in doubt
the private insurance exchanges
that are part of the Affordable Care
Act. Democrats vowed to use yearend negotiations on the federal
agency budgets as a leverage point
to reinstate the payments, saying
they would pin the political blame
on Republicans if premiums skyrocket next year.
“This is the equivalent of healthcare arson. He is literally setting
the entire health-care system on
fire just because the president is
upset that the United States Congress won’t pass a repeal bill,” Sen.
Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said on
“Fox News Sunday.”
But Sen. Lindsey O. Graham
(R-S.C.), who has played golf twice
with Trump in the past week, said
that the president called Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) Saturday
and is “encouraging him to get a
bipartisan deal that would have
some flexibility” from the law.
“I hope that we can get a deal
between Senator Alexander and
Patty Murray that would allow us
to continue the payments, but get
reform,” Graham said on CBS’s
“Face the Nation,” referring to the
chairman and ranking Democrat
on the health committee.
The standoff comes as Trump
heads to a potentially pivotal meeting Monday with Senate Majority
Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.),
with whom he has publicly clashed
since the Senate’s failed vote in late
July to repeal the ACA. Advisers
say the talk is meant to get both
sides on the same page heading
into the critical fall and early winter legislative session as they tackle
issues such as health care, immigration and federal spending.
Alexander and Murray (DWash.) have been in negotiations
Wednesday, October 18
Streamed live from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.
The Washington Post will bring together
policymakers, medical experts and industry
leaders to discuss how the nation is responding
to America’s opioid epidemic. Speakers will
discuss how the skyrocketing number of cases
of opioid abuse — and opioid-related deaths
— reflects a complex set of circumstances and
regulatory challenges that cross boundaries
between government and the medical industry,
and have consequences that reach far beyond
those sectors.

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), left, says that President Trump
still wants to see a bipartisan deal on the Affordable Care Act.
over ways to stabilize the ACA markets since Republicans were unable to repeal the 2010 health-care
law in late July. The bipartisan duo
have signaled that they are close to
a deal, but Republicans have been
demanding some changes to the
ACA and conservatives in the
House have grown wary of the
talks, vowing to oppose anything
that they view as a bailout.
“The president is not going to
continue to throw good money after bad, give $7 billion to insurance
companies unless something
changes about Obamacare that
would justify it,” Graham said, trying to explain Trump’s announcement.
But some moderate Republicans, as well as GOP governors
who support the ACA, view those
payments as critical and contend
that without them, millions of
Americans will lose insurance and
that those who do not will pay
significantly more for coverage.
“What the president is doing is
affecting the ability of vulnerable
people to receive health care right
now. This is not a bailout of the
insurers. What this money is used
for is to help low-income people
afford their deductibles and their
co-pays so that their health care is
available to them,” said Sen. Susan
Collins (Maine), one of three Republican senators to vote against
the July ACA repeal effort.
“These certainly are very disruptive moves that will result in
smaller numbers of people being
insured, that will make it more
difficult for low-income people to
afford their out-of-pocket costs
and that will destabilize the insur-
ance market,” she said.
Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who
worked with Graham last month
on a last-ditch effort to repeal the
ACA, defended Trump’s actions,
saying that “the president’s not
gutting the Affordable Care Act.”
He noted the ruling of a lower
federal court that the subsidies
were unconstitutional and should
come from the annual spending
bills passed by Congress, not an
automatic payment. Cassidy said
he wants changes along the lines of
his bill with Graham that would
have given vast powers to states in
administering the health-care law.
All of this probably will come to
a head in the December negotiations over funding federal agencies, one of several combustible
issues that Trump and lawmakers
must deal with or else risk shutting
down the federal government in
the holiday season.
House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned whether Trump fully understands where
the Alexander-Murray negotiations stand. “I wonder if he even
knows what that path is, because,
from what he says, it doesn’t sound
like he has knowledge, knows the
facts,” she said on ABC’s “This
Week With George Stephanopoulos.”
Pelosi said the blame for a shutdown would rest with Trump and
Republicans in control of Congress.
“They have the majority in the
House and the Senate and the president’s signature. They have the
power to keep government open,”
she said.

An ode to AIM and all it taught us about the Internet
An Internet era
The Switch will end Dec. 15
when AIM, the
instantmessaging
program started
in 1997 by AOL, will sign off
permanently.
The service is stopping
because “the way in which we
communicate with each other
has profoundly changed,”
Michael Albers, vice president
of communications products at
AOL parent company Oath,
wrote in a recent blog post.
Even though it had
languished in irrelevance for
years, AIM occupies a warm
place in the hearts of kids who
came of age online — the place
where we discussed Beanie
Babies and Destiny’s Child
albums, but also where we
shared our thoughts about 9/11
and the wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq. For me, AIM was the
first element of the Internet
that caught my fascination and
addiction. I was constantly
exceeding the time limit we had
on our dial-up Internet because
of my many AIM conversations.
The chat service taught a
young, influential technological
generation the ground rules of
digital communication. Hearing
the door open online let you
know your friend was logged
on, in some ways paving the
way for the Pavlovian response
to modern digital notifications.
It was more instant than an
online forum, and so the
reactions you gave — emoticons
a la :) and Internet-speak
abbreviations such as “lol” —
became very important. It was
also the first place where I
learned that people are
different online than they are in
real life and the heartfelt
conversation you had with
someone on AIM did not
guarantee that the connection
would carry over into class the
next day.
In some ways, it was the ideal
tool for dealing with high
school, if you kept your wits
about you. You could craft a
version of yourself online that
was never betrayed by your
faltering vocal cords or
blushing cheeks. You could put
up an away message to be not

the whole basis for the once-hip
but now hilariously dated hit
movie “You’ve Got Mail.”)
I am biased, but I think it was
actually just the right amount of
digital connection for a teen.
Watching others go through
their adolescent years now with
glossy selfies, crafted moments
and check-ins that let you know
when your friends are hanging
out without you makes me glad
to be old. It would have taken
too long to send a picture of
myself doing anything over AIM
on the connection I had. Plus, I
didn’t have my own phone, let
alone one that took pictures.
Yet AIM languished as its
users and the technology world
around it matured. We
abandoned AIM for other
platforms that offered us more:
Facebook, Skype, Gchat,
Snapchat, WhatsApp, Slack. We
required more from our online
lives, and maybe — certainly in
my case — we wanted to leave
our childish things behind.
For those who still use AIM,
or did until recently, Oath has
posted an information page
describing how you can
download and preserve your
data. Chats should be logged by
default, but any images or files
will have to be downloaded
individually. Some information,
such as buddy lists, cannot be
saved. All data not saved will be
deleted Dec. 15.
Most of us will not have
anything to save from those
accounts. Or, perhaps more
truthfully, we will have nothing
worth saving.
Still, let’s take a moment to
say: Thanks, AIM. You
represented a fleeting, golden
age of Internet communication,
one in which we could connect
in ways we couldn’t offline, but
not to the point where we had
to overshare with everyone. In
that way, you were too good to
last.
Goodbye.

U.S. land swap would allow road in Alaska wildlife refuge
ALASKA FROM A1
uments detailing Interior’s efforts under the Freedom of Information Act.
Those documents, primarily internal agency emails, reveal how
much discussion is intentionally
taking place out of public view as
federal, state, local and tribal officials work to approve a land exchange. Were the targeted terrain
owned by the King Cove Corporation, that would clear the way for
construction through the refuge
to join up roads on either side.
The one-lane stretch of gravel
would bisect an expanse of tundra, lagoons and other waterways
that provide a vital feeding
ground for migrating birds as
well as bears, caribou and other
species. Izembek was created by
President Dwight Eisenhower in
1960, and two decades later Congress designated all but 15,000 of
its 315,000 acres as wilderness. In
spring and fall, nearly all of the
world’s population of emperor
and Pacific black brant geese
stops to devour the refuge’s eelgrass beds for sustenance. In winter, tens of thousands of the
threatened Steller’s eider sea
ducks stay and molt there.
But Aleutians East Borough
communications director Laura
Tanis, whose local government
assembly encompasses King
Cove, described the road as an
issue of equity.
“The residents of King Cove are
Americans,” Tanis said. “They deserve what virtually all Americans have: the certainty and the
peace of mind that when they
need to travel for medical emergencies, scheduled medical appointments, school sports and
other activities, they can count on
getting to their hub airport safely,
reliably and affordably.”
The 1964 Wilderness Act bars
new roads and the use of motorized vehicles in areas designated
under the law except in rare
instances — such as to provide
access for the development of
existing mining claims — and
there appears to be no precedent
for the executive branch permitting those activities for other reasons. The Wilderness Society and
other groups successfully blocked
the Forest Service last year from

Congress, though, has always
enjoyed broader latitude because
of its legislative role. Lawmakers
in 2014 authorized minor adjustments to a wilderness boundary

National Park so a proposed road
could be rerouted farther away

The question of how best to
address the needs of tiny King
Cove, located on the tip of the
Alaska Peninsula, has been politically fraught for decades. Residents have lobbied federal officials to develop a road through
the Izembek refuge so they could
travel by land to a major regional
airport in neighboring Cold Bay.
Between 1980 and 1994, 12 people
died during aerial medical evacuations en route to that hub airport, and while no residents have
died during such evacuations
since, local leaders say there have
been many close calls.
The issue temporarily held up
the 2013 confirmation of Sally
Jewell as interior secretary in the
Obama administration after Sen.
Lisa Murkowksi (R-Alaska)
threatened to not allow a vote
unless Jewell agreed to authorize
the road.
The federal government has
spent more than $50 million
since 1998 to help King Cove,
funding a modern telemedicine
clinic and a hovercraft that could
cover the distance between the
two towns in 20 minutes. Multiple federal analyses have suggested alternatives to a new road —
such as a marine ferry to replace
the hovercraft residents got rid of
several years ago — as the preferred policy option.
Tanis said that maintaining a
ferry “would not be affordable”
and that the region’s severe winds
“would prevent the ferry from
operating at times.” She said that
expense and reliability were also
why the town stopped using the
hovercraft, which performed
more than 30 evacuations between 2007 and 2010.
The documents from the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service make
clear that Interior Secretary
Ryan Zinke has elevated the issue to one of the agency’s top
priorities, and his appointees
have taken deliberate steps to
conceal the plan from the public.
At one point, a refuge official
relayed his conversation with a
department attorney about questions Zinke raised over public
review of agency action related to
Alaska’s survey of a possible road
through Izembek.
“He indicated the Secretary
would like to see folks on the
ground doing the survey in the
next couple of days,” the official
emailed colleagues. “He did not

ficial there to clarify that the land

under wraps. The corporation
president had suggested exchanging two parcels of tribal
land, totaling 2,604 acres along
the refuge’s southern boundary
on Cold Bay, for federal land
within the wilderness area.
“I’m not sure if you were
provided a copy of the letter
from King Cove Corporation to
Secretary Zinke requesting a
land exchange so here it is,” the
lawyer wrote. “I understand it
[sic] King Cove is not going to
make this request public but
rather let the Department roll it
out when it is ready.”
Department officials repeatedly noted Zinke’s prominent role.
“I verified that the land exchange
idea and ‘push’ is from the Secretary’s office,” a staffer from the
Fish and Wildlife Service’s realty
and conservation division in Anchorage wrote in an April 26
email.
And the special-use permit
that Fish and Wildlife gave state
transportation officials in June to
conduct the road survey stated:
“The Secretary of the Interior
mandated that the Fish and Wildlife Service explore the option of a
land trade between the Izembek
Refuge and the King Cove Corporation.”
The Interior Department did
not respond to requests for comment.
While a land exchange could be
achieved through Congress —
and a bill approving one passed
the House in July along party
lines — the measure faces opposition in the Senate.
Congress directed Interior in
2009 to study whether it served
the public interest to construct a
road through the refuge. Four
years later, the department produced an environmental-impact
statement that concluded that
the project should not be pursued because many species
would be harmed, as the road’s
construction, use and maintenance would disturb and fragment their habitat.
Many federal officials, as well
as some officials from Cold Bay,
also questioned whether it would
be practical to make the two-hour
drive during severe winter
storms, when snow drifts block
roads and impair visibility. Peter
Mjos, the former U.S. Indian
Health Service medical director
for the King Cove area, told Interior in 2013 that “the proposed
road is a calamity-in-waiting”
and would actually jeopardize
lives.
This spring, Fish and Wildlife
Service officials produced an updated analysis of the two routes
Alaska is contemplating through
the refuge. It concluded that both
would have “major” impacts on
brants, tundra swans, emperor
geese, bears, fish and, potentially,
caribou.
“Both routes are equally destructive to the refuge’s purposes,” one official wrote in an
April 28 email.
The email correspondence
sometimes suggests that career
officials were concerned that they
maintain the appearance of having not yet made a decision. As
the agency conducted an analysis
required for any proposed refuge
management activities that violate the Wilderness Act, one official cautioned colleagues in a
June 23 email that it is “not a
justificatory process. There could
be consequences if we are seen to
be violating this process.”
In a May 24 letter to Zinke, the
president of the King Cove Corporation, which had continued to
appeal the Obama administration’s decision blocking the road
project, wrote that the land exchange “could also lead to a settlement” of its lawsuit. On Aug. 11,
the case was dropped.
Jewell, who visited both King
Cove and Cold Bay with Murkowski in 2013, said in an interview
Wednesday that she and other
federal officials had taken considerable steps to solicit public input
during deliberations on the proposed project. During her tour,
she recalled, children from each
grade in King Cove’s elementary
school “stared me down” and read
letters on why they needed a road.
“I don’t know how [the Trump
administration] could do this —
to undo wilderness and undo a
refuge to such extent — without
an open public process,” Jewell
said.
“There’s over $50 million that
we, the taxpayers, have paid to
not put a road through a critical
environmental area that has been
identified and protected since the
1940s,” she said. “What the government has done for the village
of King Cove is so much more
already than what the government has done already for just
about any other village in Alaska.
It is frustrating that the efforts
made never seem to be good
enough.”

Unraveling ‘worst deal ever’ could hurt U.S., experts say
Export tariffs would rise
if NAFTA crumbles;
job cuts could follow
BY
S TEVEN M UFSON
President Trump has called
the North American Free Trade
Agreement “the worst deal ever,”
but one thing might actually be
worse: no deal at all.
The fourth round of negotiations to revise the agreement
wraps up Oct. 17, but many people close to the talks have expressed doubts that they will
succeed.
If NAFTA crumbles, trade
among Mexico, Canada and the
United States would fall under
World Trade Organization rules
with modest average tariff rates
and an established, if unwieldy,
process for resolving disputes.
But the tariff rates, although
relatively low, would be higher
on U.S. exports than on U.S.
imports. Many trade experts say
that would hurt U.S. exporters of
everything from corn to auto
parts and that the United States
could end up with fewer jobs
while paying higher prices for
goods than it does.
Meanwhile, Canada and Mexico would be able to fall back on
free-trade agreements they have
forged with Europe recently, providing zero tariffs.
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis
Videgaray told a Mexican Senate
committee this week that the end
of the North American Free Trade
Agreement “won’t be the end of
the world.”
And in some ways Videgaray is
right. The world of global trade
has far fewer walls and stumbling blocks than it did 23 years
ago, when NAFTA went into
effect.
Nonetheless, even small tariff
differences can have substantial
effects, many trade experts say,
and could upend established supply chains.
“If NAFTA ends, the tariffs the
United States imposes on imports from Mexico would revert
(from currently zero) to their
WTO levels. For the United
States, these tariffs average
3.5 percent” across all goods,
Chad Bown, a senior fellow at the
Peterson Institute for International Economics, said in an
email.
“Mexico’s WTO tariffs are a bit
higher — on average 7.1 percent,”
he wrote. “So U.S. exporters
would go from facing zero tariffs

Scrapping NAFTA would hurt U.S. exporters of everything from corn to auto parts and lead to job losses in the United States, experts say.
currently for their sales to the
Mexican market under NAFTA to
7.1 percent on average without
NAFTA.”
For automobiles, the gap could
add hundreds of dollars to the
price of a car. Or carmakers in
Mexico might drop U.S. suppliers
subject to WTO rates and look for
European auto parts manufacturers, who would not have to
pay any tariff under their freetrade pact.
NAFTA’s rules of origin for
automobiles would also disappear. Those rules were designed
to prevent countries outside
North America from using the
treaty as a back door into the U.S.
market. Under NAFTA, 62.5 percent of the value of an imported
vehicle must originate in Canada,
Mexico or the United States for
that vehicle to get duty-free access to the region.
Without
NAFTA,
supply
chains could reorient them-
selves. Cars sold in the United
States might contain more foreign parts, and Mexican cars sold
to Europe or Latin America
might use fewer U.S. components.
“U.S. producers would face less
market access in Mexico without
NAFTA than Mexico would face
in the United States,” said Caroline Freund, a senior fellow at the
Peterson Institute for International Economics and former
economist at the World Bank.
Getting rid of NAFTA could
also hurt the agriculture industry, which is strong in the states
Trump carried in his presidential
campaign. Since NAFTA was enacted, U.S. food and agricultural
exports to Canada and Mexico
have more than quadrupled, to
$38 billion in 2016, according to
the Fresh Produce Association of
the Americas. And Mexican agricultural exports have given consumers year-round access to
Leo Gerard, president of the
United Steelworkers union, says
NAFTA was sold to the American
public with “a bag full of lies.” He
says it has done little to bring
good wages to Mexico and has
therefore siphoned jobs to Mexico away from the United States
and Canada. He singles out auto
factory jobs; half his members
make auto parts.
But Gerard isn’t ready to sim-
fruits and vegetables that had
been available only during certain seasons.
A collapse of NAFTA could also
boomerang on some of the accord’s harshest critics, especially
labor and environmental groups
that want to toughen up what
they see as ineffective side agreements to the original treaty.
Without NAFTA, however, those
agreements would simply vanish.

Trumps’ legal bills are up sharply
525
15
BY T OM H AMBURGER
AND A NU N ARAYANSWAMY
President Trump’s reelection
committee spent more than
$1 million on legal bills last
quarter as investigations into
Russian meddling in the 2016
election pressed on through the
summer, according to a disclosure filed Sunday with the Federal Election Commission.
The filing shows the committee’s “legal consulting” expenditures came to $1.1 million between July and September, including $802,185 paid to the law
firm Jones Day, which has represented the campaign. An additional $267,000 was paid to lawyers representing the president’s
eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in
the Russia investigations.
Since the beginning of the
year, the Trump campaign and
the Republican National Committee have spent $2.4 million on
legal fees — and the bills appear
to be mounting. The latest FEC
reports show that the campaign
spent more on legal bills over the
past three months than it did
during the first and second quarters of this year combined.
Special counsel Robert S.
Mueller III and multiple congressional committees have active
probes into Russian interference.
The RNC and the campaign are
helping the Trump family and
employees pay legal fees incurred by the various investigations, which is permitted under
federal law as long as the costs
are related to campaign activity.
Last month, the RNC confirmed
it had directed more than
$427,000 to lawyers representing
Trump and his eldest son.
Overall, the Trump campaign
and two related fundraising committees collected $11.6 million
between July and September and
spent $5.6 million.
ply shred the NAFTA agreement.
He wants to fix it with enforceable labor standards and wages.
“If you just rip it up, it’s worse,”
he said. “If you bail out of this,
you’re going to have to have new
rules.”
Mexico, however, would not
escape damage from a collapse of
NAFTA. NAFTA has helped generate confidence in all three nations, which has been especially
helpful in attracting investment
to Mexico. A collapse of the
accord could choke off some of
that investment.
Moreover, the WTO tariff
numbers are averages and in
some areas — especially in agriculture, sneakers and textiles —
the United States could impose
much higher duties. It would
impose a 25 percent tariff on
pickup trucks, 48 percent on
sports sneakers, and between
5 and 20 percent for textiles,
Freund said.
Even with the free-trade agreements Mexico has with Europe
and others, it will be hardpressed to divert goods from the
United States, where Mexico
sends 80 percent of its exports.
In a roundabout way, the collapse of NAFTA could help Mexico sell those goods. The end of
the agreement probably would
undermine confidence in Mexico’s currency, the peso, which has
declined nearly 6.5 percent over
the past month amid squabbling
over trade. That could further
lower costs of manufacturing in
Mexico, making it even harder
for the United States to compete
with its southern neighbor.
The impact a NAFTA collapse
would have on U.S.-Canada trade
is less clear. Before NAFTA, the
two nations had a bilateral freetrade agreement that might
come back into force after
NAFTA. If so, each country would
have zero tariffs on the other. If
that treaty were not brought back
into effect, then Canada could
impose an average tariff of
4.2 percent on U.S. goods under
the WTO rules.

JABIN BOTSFORD/THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are getting help with legal
fees from a campaign committee and the national Republican Party.
The Trump committee’s payments included $237,924 to Alan
Futerfas, a New York defense
lawyer who is representing Donald Trump Jr. and other Trump
Organization employees in the
Russia probes. The campaign
also paid $30,000 to the law firm
Williams & Jensen, which has
been working with Futerfas on
matters concerning Trump Jr.
The younger Trump testified
for five hours before a closed
meeting of the Senate Judiciary
Committee in early September.
During the session, he was asked
for details about a June 2016
meeting with a Russian lawyer
who reportedly promised to provide negative information about
Hillary Clinton, his father’s Democratic opponent.
The campaign committee also
reimbursed the president’s company, the Trump Organization,
$25,800 for legal consulting.
During the first six months of
the year, the Trump campaign
reported spending $927,171 on
legal fees — less than the
$1.1 million total spent in the last
three months.
The numbers are likely to go
higher as Mueller’s team, along
with the Senate and House intelligence committees, continue
their probes into Russian interference.
The special counsel has focused investigative attention on
two former campaign advisers,
Paul Manafort, once Trump’s
campaign chairman, and former
national security adviser Michael
Flynn. On Friday, the special
counsel’s office interviewed
Trump’s former White House
chief of staff, Reince Priebus, for
several hours behind closed
doors.
Mueller’s team has also expressed interest in interviewing
White House counsel Donald McGahn and Communications Director Hope Hicks, according to
people familiar with his requests.
Neither the Trump campaign nor
the Trump Organization responded immediately to requests
for comment Sunday.

become more competitive relative to other nations
with simpler tax codes and more favorable corporate
rates. And there would be no net impact on the debt.
It is not too late for the Senate to avoid fiscal
disaster. Senators still have the option of following
through on years of rhetoric promising budgetary
responsibility. They should reject the reckless budget outline they have before them.
TOM TOLES
A Senate bill isn’t enough to solve
overincarceration, but it’s a start.
And while about half of federal inmates were convicted of drug crimes, such offenses account for a much
smaller proportion of state prisoners — more than
half of whom, in turn, have been imprisoned for
violent offenses.
For this reason, it’s notable that the bill also
requires the creation of a bipartisan commission to
examine the criminal-justice system on the federal,
state and local level. Previous proposals for such a
commission have received support from both civil
rights and police organizations, all of whom agree
that the justice system is overdue for review. Hopefully, a National Criminal Justice Commission would be
empowered to produce recommendations for reform
on all levels of government beyond the simple but
insufficient fix of going easier on nonviolent drug
offenders.
In 2016, the Sentencing Reform and Corrections
Act never received a vote due to opposition from,
among others, then-Sen. Jeff Sessions. As attorney
general, Mr. Sessions has since made his opposition
to sentencing reform clear by advocating for prosecutors to pursue the harshest penalties possible. Even
without the support of the Justice Department, Mr.
Sessions’s former colleagues should back this muchneeded legislation.
A small-stakes spat over land imperils a big-stakes regional project.

although it qualified on both counts. It also threatened Metro’s own interests.
At issue is a long-planned deal under which Metro
would transfer land around its Silver Spring, College
Park and New Carrollton stations to Maryland, so
that construction work can start there on the Purple
Line. In return, Metro would receive a parcel of state
land and a 450-space state-owned parking lot.
The Purple Line, which runs like an eyebrow
through close-in Maryland suburban neighborhoods
just north of the District, isn’t part of Metro, but it
would provide a link among those three stations, as
well as the Bethesda station. Metro would feed passengers to the Purple Line and vice versa. In partnership,
the Purple Line and Metro are a win-win proposition
— until parochialism is factored into the equation.
With just weeks to go before work is scheduled to
start on the Purple Line, Metro’s Virginia and federal
representatives now say Maryland is underpaying,
because the land Metro would receive, valued at
about $17 million, is worth $7 million to $20 million
less than the land it would give up. Separately, the
District’s representatives on the Metro board are
threatening to veto the land swap unless Maryland
agrees to a reorganization of the board’s committees.
Never mind that some of the land Metro would give
up was granted at little or no cost to the transit system
by Maryland or its localities in the first place. (One
parcel, in Silver Spring, worth $8 million in 1990, was
given to Metro in 2015, gratis.) Never mind that the
Purple Line would provide a convenient new link for
Metro passengers. And never mind that the stakes
involved in streamlining the board’s committee structure are minuscule.
The core problem is that Metro board members are
so parochial and tunnel-visioned that they cannot
discern the Purple Line’s clear benefit to the region
amid the clutter of their separate agendas. That they
would threaten to delay the new light-rail line —
which has survived a welter of lawsuits and political
obstacles — is outrageous.
Former U.S. transportation secretary Ray LaHood
has recommended getting rid of Metro’s current board
and replacing it with a much smaller body including
no elected officials. Current members seem determined to prove the wisdom of his recommendation.

The gap between what Virginians want and what politicans do
Regarding the Oct. 8 Local Opinions essay “Support for Medicaid expansion in Virginia is growing”:
The disturbing gap between the policy that a
decisive majority of Virginians want and the partisan
obstruction our closed-ranks General Assembly majority practices is growing wider.
That gap traps hundreds of thousands of hardworking, low-income Virginians in a health-care
desert, without access to insurance and basic medicine, reliant on expensive and limited emergency
care, at much greater risk of premature disability,
death and medical bankruptcy.
Obstruction has produced an irrecoverable loss of
more than $10 billion in federal funds, hundreds of
millions in state budget savings and thousands of
forgone jobs, while severely restricting communities’
ability to meet critical public-health needs, including
The Oct. 12 front-page article on the Boy
Scouts described how the organization’s dwindling
membership inspired the Boy Scouts in recent years
to admit gay and transgender members and now
girls. Unfortunately, the media and Boy Scouts
never mention who is still left out: atheists.
There is a requirement that scouts and leaders
must agree with a principle that says, “The Boy
Scouts of America maintains that no member can
grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God.” Many open atheists have
been refused membership or been kicked out of the
Boy Scouts when they stopped believing in any
deities. Apparently, the BSA does not consider
honesty a core value and would rather youngsters
pretend to believe. This certainly would teach them
a lesson on how best to prepare for political careers,
because open atheists currently have little chance of
being elected. On the other hand, the military
allows atheists to serve openly and honorably.
However, even atheists with an honorable military
discharge are not deemed fit to serve as Boy Scout
leaders.

As the Oct. 11 editorial “A pragmatic decision on
guns” said, now that the District has determined
not to appeal the court decision striking down the
city’s “good reason” requirement for carrying a
concealed gun on the city’s streets, the D.C. Council
“might want to determine . . . whether other
protections should be put in place” to protect public
safety. This seems to be a good suggestion.
In fact, the court’s decision itself offered a road
map for how the D.C. Council should make that
determination. The court said that the District must
allow residents to “carry a gun in the face of
ordinary self-defense needs,” and that those “needs”
must be measured by “the risks and needs typical of
law-abiding citizens.” It furthermore said that the
District should grant a license to carry only to those
shown to be “responsible” citizens and should deny
it to those “prone to misuse” the weapons.
The council should revisit its public carrying laws
to ensure that they are consistent with this
standard. It can marshal data to ascertain what the
risks and self-defense needs are of typical lawabiding citizens and how often such citizens are
prone to misuse weapons. This inquiry could be
based on actual need for and use of weapons by
citizens outside the home, both here in the District
and elsewhere. The analysis will help the council
determine whether other rules are needed to meet
the court’s standard and better protect public safety.

Parochialism continues to cripple Metro
MONG THE problems that beset Metro is the
stark fact that top officials from its three
regional partners, Maryland, Virginia and
the District, are strangers to one another. In
recent conversations about the transit system, a
prominent Virginia elected official mangled the
names of D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) and D.C.
Council member Jack Evans (D), who chairs the
Metro board. A top aide to Maryland Gov. Larry
Hogan (R) said he’d never heard of D.C. Council
Chairman Phil Mendelson (D). And a senior District
official involved with Metro said he’d never met or
spoken with Maryland’s transportation secretary.
Add to those symptoms of Metro’s dysfunction the
fact that any jurisdiction on the Metro board can veto
decisions favored by the other two, and you have a
recipe for gridlock.
Metro’s fissures cracked open the other day when
board members from the District, Virginia and the
federal government suddenly balked at a land swap ,
potentially delaying construction of Maryland’s lightrail Purple Line. The move, which infuriated Maryland officials, was not just gratuitous and greedy,
Regarding the Oct. 12 front-page article “Boy
Scouts, in historic move, will accept girls”:
I don’t understand why the Boy Scouts and Girl
Scouts don’t merge into one efficient and effective
scouting organization. The Boys & Girls Clubs of
America seems to be a successful organization and
the logical model of an egalitarian, engaging and
logical approach to youth programming in our
changing world. I was a Cub Scout and my sister was
a Girl Scout. We managed to play well together (even
though she used to beat me up).

What the council should do next
T
HE URGENCY of criminal-justice reform has
become a rare matter of bipartisan consensus in Washington. Yet a reform bill introduced two years ago with support from both
sides of the aisle failed to make it through the Senate.
Now the bill’s backers are renewing their effort to
reduce the federal prison population.
The Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act,
sponsored by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman
Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Richard J.
Durbin (D-Ill.) along with a bipartisan group of
lawmakers, would be a significant step forward. But
it would also be far from sufficient as a solution to
overincarceration.
The bill seeks to lower mandatory-minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses and limit those
enhanced sentences to only “serious” drug crimes —
though mandatory minimums would newly apply to
offenders with serious violent crimes on their records. Judges could retroactively reduce the sentences
of those who received a lengthy prison term under
these requirements, except for prisoners who had
committed a violent felony. Likewise, the bill would
allow judges to reduce harsh sentences handed down
for possession of crack cocaine by retroactively
applying the Fair Sentencing Act, which reduced the
disparity between criminal penalties for crack and
powder cocaine. And courts would have flexibility to
impose sentences lower than the minimum requirement in an increased number of drug cases.
Beyond decreasing sentences, the bill puts in place
measures to reduce recidivism and allow a smoother
reentry into society for offenders who have served
their sentences. Certain prisoners with nonviolent
offenses would be encouraged to participate in programs designed for rehabilitation and finish out their
terms at halfway houses or with monitoring at home.
These are responsible proposals that deserve bipartisan consideration by Congress. But the problem
of overincarceration will not be solved by curbing
federal drug sentences. To begin with, the overwhelming majority of prisoners in the United States
are incarcerated in state rather than federal prisons.

AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER
EPUBLICANS WANT to pass the biggest
rewrite of the federal tax code since 1986.
They could do so the right way, taking care
to simplify the code without harming the
country’s already stretched finances. Or they could
hypocritically balloon the debt to pay for tax cuts,
nullifying the benefits of the rewrite by plunging the
country into dangerous fiscal territory.
A plan before the Senate, possibly to be voted on
this week, would do tax reform the wrong way. Any
Republican who ever breathed a word of concern
about the debt when Democrats were in charge has
no excuse to support this plan. They should reject
the budget outline.
The reason is simple: The Senate budget plan
would allow lawmakers to add a whopping $1.5 trillion to the debt over a decade in order to cut taxes.
Backers of the idea insist that the impact would not
be as bad as this top-line figure would suggest. The

General Assembly applies bandages here and there

Instead of bipartisan solutions, our General Assembly majority invests in closed-ranks demagoguery and gerrymandering, muffling and shrouding
majority will with the same cloak of invisibility
employed on those trapped in the coverage gap,
while insulating the incumbent partisans from reality and voter accountability.
Some may see gerrymandering as just a political
abstraction. But its legacy of damage to health and

Make FEMA independent again
Regarding the Oct. 10 news article “FEMA chief:
Politics stalled response”:
Before Sept. 11, 2001, the Federal Emergency
Management Agency was an independent, robust
federal agency that partnered with other federal
agencies to create a network for emergency response. After 9/11, FEMA was melded into the
Department of Homeland Security, its budget was
cut, permanent federal positions were taken away to
staff the new agency, and political appointees with
no experience were placed in the agency. In such a
debilitated state, FEMA could no longer prepare for
or react to major natural disasters.
Hundreds of human lives have been lost in natural
disasters, yet Homeland Security remains focused
on external terrorist threats; that endeavor is where
most of its budget and staff are focused.
I know FEMA can be great again. I was one of the
inter-agency federal conservators asked to assess
damage after Hurricane Andrew struck Florida. Homeland Security does not respect the mission
of FEMA, nor does it give it the funds and staff to
prepare for and respond to real disasters as opposed
to potential and for the most part nonexistent threats of foreign terrorists. FEMA would
respond much better to national emergencies as a
separate entity.
Edward McManus, Washington
Inaccurate claims from Mr. Sessions
The Oct. 13 news article “Citing ‘rampant abuse
and fraud,’ Sessions urges tighter asylum rules”
quoted Attorney General Jeff Sessions as saying
that many asylum claims “lacked merit” and are
“simply a ruse to enter the country illegally.” As one
of the “dirty immigration lawyers” who has represented hundreds of asylum seekers, I find these
claims wildly inaccurate and dangerous. When I
ask my clients, the majority of them children, why
they came to the came to the United States, they
invariably tell me the same thing: I had no choice —
I was running for my life. Indeed, the U.N. High
Commissioner for Refugees reported that 58 percent of Northern Triangle and Mexican children
displaced in the United States suffered or faced
harms that indicated need for international protection. These children are not gaming the system;
they are seeking refuge from rampant genderbased violence, MS-13 death threats and child
abuse.
While I like to think I am a “smart” attorney, even
immigrants represented by the smartest attorneys
do not stand a chance in places such as Atlanta,
where the asylum grant rate is as low as 2 percent.
Yes, reform is needed, but the only reform we
should consider is one that provides more robust
protections and recognizes our moral and legal
obligation to protect asylum seekers.

Why Ben
Bernanke is
worried
Trump’s
Iran trap
for Congress
B
O
en Bernanke is worried — and
perhaps we should be, too.
As chairman of the Federal
Reserve from 2006 to 2014, it
was Bernanke, along with others, who
prevented the worst recession since
World War II from becoming the Great
Depression 2.0. Now he fears that,
should another sharp recession occur,
the Fed won’t be able to contain it.
Traditionally, the Fed has sought to
influence the economy by changing
short-term interest rates. If a recession looms, the Fed cuts the “fed
funds” rate to stimulate demand. If
the danger is inflation, the Fed raises
the rate to relieve wage and price
pressures. Changes in the fed funds
rate are assumed to nudge rates on
mortgages, corporate bonds and
Treasury securities in the same direction.
But there’s a practical limit to this
approach: Once the Fed has cut the
rate to zero, it can’t do much more. If
the recession is deep, it may outlast
the Fed’s therapy. To many economists, failure portends dire consequences: deflation (falling prices). Too
little demand chases too much supply.
Deflation was rampant in the Great
Depression. From 1929 to 1933, retail
prices dropped 24 percent. At first
glance, deflation seems a boon; consumers’ buying power increases. But
beyond these modest benefits, stubborn deflation threatens a vicious
circle of economic decline. Consumers
delay big purchases because they
think prices will drop. Debt burdens
become greater, as borrowers must
repay in more expensive dollars. Unemployment rises, and the Fed is
helpless.
To avoid this trap, Bernanke —
while Fed chairman — adopted what’s
called “unconventional monetary policy.” First, the Fed flooded the economy with money by buying an estimated $3.7 trillion worth of mortgage
bonds and U.S. Treasury securities;
the aim was to reduce long-term interest rates further. And second, the Fed
gave “forward guidance” — in effect, a
nonlegal commitment — that shortterm interest rates would stay low for
a long period.
In a paper presented recently at the
Peterson Institute for International
Economics, a Washington think tank,
Bernanke judged that these policies —
to some extent — had helped end the
Great Recession and sustain the recovery. What troubles him now is the
possibility that the same policies
won’t work in a severe recession or
financial crisis in the future.
We already live in a “low-inflation,
low-interest-rate environment,” he
tells us. Consumer price inflation has
been running below 2 percent annually, the Fed’s official target, for most of
nine years. The fed funds interest rate
is now at a peak of 1.25 percent. Rates
on 10-year Treasury securities are
2.3 percent. These low levels occur
despite eight years of recovery and an
unemployment rate of 4.2 percent.
Just why inflation and interest rates
are so low is debated by economists.
Theories abound: The psychological
hangover of the Great Recession
causes companies to restrain wage
and price increases; global competition and new technologies reduce
upward pressures on wages and prices; an aging society saves more than a
younger nation.
But whatever the causes, already
low inflation and interest rates —
which are pleasurable while the economy is healthy — make it harder for
the Fed to rescue a sickly economy
that is suddenly sliding into a steep
slump.
Consider a comparison between
then and now.
In 2007 and 2008, when the economy was weakening, the Fed cut the fed
funds rate 5.25 percentage points to
near zero in a little over a year. Now a
plausible cut would be 1 to 3 percentage points (the higher figure assumes
the Fed continues raising the fed
funds rate from its present extremely
low levels). The same math undermines another round of “unconventional” monetary policies.
Then there’s deflation. A harsh recession could depress prices, threatening a downward spiral of spending
and business investment.
In his paper, Bernanke makes a
proposal to allow the Fed to escape
this predicament. His plan is complicated and, in practice, would involve
the Fed throwing more money at a
faltering economy in the hope that it
would recover and be stabilized. (The
complexities of Bernanke’s plan extend even to its name, “temporary
price-level targeting.”) There are other
plans on the table; whether the Fed
will adopt any of them is an open
question.
Still, Bernanke’s plan and accompanying analysis represent a useful addition to the ongoing debate over economic policy. There certainly will be
another recession, though we can’t
know when or how severe. Bernanke
plausibly worries that we won’t be
ready. If not his proposal, then whose
and why? These are good questions
without good answers. We may be
reaching the limits of the Fed’s power
over the economy.
challenges have been building for a long
time.”
Price hopes that Republicans might at
some point be willing to enact specific
elements of the bill. For example, he notes
that members of both parties worry about
“the danger of losing control of their
campaign message to unaccountable outside groups.”
But the wide-ranging nature of the bill
— it includes additional reform ideas
introduced by various members of Congress over the years — sends a larger
message about the need for “comprehensive reform,” he said, and the importance
of being ready with “a clear set of proposals when the opportunity to pass them
presents itself, as it inevitably will.”
Believe it or not, progressives can learn
from the Republicans’ failure to end
Obamacare. Fred Wertheimer, the president of Democracy 21 and a veteran of past
reform efforts, notes that Republicans
spoke for years about “repeal and replace.”
But when political circumstances gave
them a chance of working their will, they
lacked a plausible policy alternative.
The lesson is that political movements
should not squander their time in opposition. They should use the opportunity that
a respite from power affords to think
boldly, broadly and practically.
There is one other thing about reform:
It happens when even those who are
skeptical of change realize that the existing system cannot sustain itself. If
Trump’s rise and the abuses of his presidency do not persuade us about the depth
of our problem, nothing will.
The time has come to make our democracy democratic again. And now, no one
can say that we lack ideas for how to do it.
n Friday, President Trump told
Congress to fix the Iran nuclear
deal for him and threatened that
if lawmakers did not obey, he
would “terminate” the agreement. Yet
the administration’s convoluted strategy
virtually assures that Congress won’t
succeed — foreshadowing yet another
crisis over the deal and perhaps a U.S.
withdrawal in just three months’ time.
In a sense, the move was classic
Trump. As with other campaign promises, including on health care and immigration, the president combined toughsounding rhetoric about reversing part
of President Barack Obama’s legacy with
a too-clever-by-half plan to avoid doing
the heavy lifting himself. Now Congress
is left to deal with the mess while the
international community scratches its
head.
“I am directing my administration to
work closely with Congress and our allies
to address the deal’s many serious flaws,”
Trump said. “In the event we are not able
to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, then the agreement
will be terminated.”
Set aside that the United States cannot
“terminate” the deal and that if the
United States withdrew unilaterally, our
allies would likely stay in the agreement
without us. What Trump is proposing is
that Congress amend the 2015 law originally meant to oversee the agreement,
which passed under the expectation that
Congress would be checking a dealfriendly Democratic president.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson
worked quietly for weeks with Sens. Bob
Corker (R-Tenn.) and Tom Cotton (RArk.) to craft a bill that would amend the
Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act.
Their proposal would effectively change
the terms of the nuclear deal by imposing new sanctions “triggers” if Iran got
close to nuclear weapons capability and
negating the “sunset” provisions easing
restrictions on Iran in the deal’s out
years.
Tillerson unveiled the legislative gambit to reporters by framing it as the last
chance to save the deal. He said the
United States must “either put more
teeth into this obligation that Iran has
undertaken . . . or let’s just forget the
whole thing. We’ll walk away and start
all over.”
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) told
me that the president is putting the
burden on Congress to avoid a withdrawal and that, if Congress fails, Trump will
make good on his threat. Graham said
the politics of the Iran issue favor Republicans, and the strategy is to present the
new legislation as a reasonable fix to a
bad deal.
If Congress does what the president
wants, then the U.S. government can
present a united front to European allies,
and even Iran. “It doesn’t just put
pressure on Congress, it puts pressure on
the international community too,”
Graham said.
But congressional Democrats and international partners swiftly rejected
Trump’s plan. The leaders of France,
Britain and Germany defended the deal
Friday. Democrats in both chambers said
they won’t take part in what they see as a
half-baked, ill-advised scheme.
“The president’s plan doesn’t make
sense,” said Rep. Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.),
the ranking Democrat on the House
Foreign Affairs Committee. “Negotiating
additional terms to the nuclear deal
requires a coalition of international partners, not unilateral congressional action.”
Democrats know they are being set up
to take the fall if Congress fails to act.
They expect Trump to accuse them of
being weak on Iran. Nevertheless, Senate
Democratic aides said, they don’t want to
be complicit in a process that could lead
to the United States being in violation of
the agreement.
Some congressional Republicans are
upset as well. GOP aides point out that
Trump has all the authority he needs to
set up triggers, reimpose sanctions or do
anything else he is asking Congress to do.
House leadership issued cautious statements reacting to Trump’s announcement, stopping short of agreeing to take
up the Corker-Cotton legislation.
“They don’t want to own it,” said one
senior GOP congressional aide of the
White House.
When asked why the administration is
punting the issue to Congress rather
than dealing with it itself, Tillerson said
that congressional action would bolster
the administration’s credibility both
with allies and Iran. He claimed that
could fuel a new diplomatic process to
negotiate a follow-on agreement.
Tillerson didn’t mention the downside
risk of passing the buck to Congress. If
Congress rejects the plan, the administration will lose credibility on the world
stage, the government will look divided
and the nation will be isolated. At that
point, advocates for staying in the deal,
including Tillerson, Defense Secretary
Jim Mattis and national security adviser
H.R. McMaster, will be out of options to
present Trump for fixing the agreement.
Perhaps that’s exactly what Trump
wants — to be able to withdraw from the
deal in three months saying he would
have fixed it but for congressional opposition and international intransigence.
And if Trump has his mind set on that
course, no confusing, far-fetched legislative scheme will be able to stop him.

Who will use Russia’s tricks?
S
end a spy to spread rumors on
the other side of the front line.
Drop leaflets into enemy territory. Debilitate the enemy using its own people, in their own
language — Lord Haw-Haw, Tokyo
Rose — over their own radios. The
tactics of demoralization are as old as
politics — as old as war — and now we
know what the second-decade-of-the21st-century version looks like, too.
Pushed by a congressional investigation, Facebook has finally turned
over some 3,000 advertisements and
links to pages created and paid for by
Russian trolls. Among them was “Secured Borders,” a fake, Kremlinbacked “organization” that appeared
to be based in Idaho. It pumped out
messages about immigrant “scum”
and attracted 133,000 followers before it was shut down. In August 2016,
its Russian backers actually promoted a rally in Twin Falls to protest an
alleged “upsurge of violence against
American citizens.”
At the same time, a different set of
Russian operatives sponsored and
advertised two black rappers who
bashed “racist b----” Hillary Clinton.
They also borrowed the identity of a
Muslim group that claimed Clinton
“created, funded and armed” alQaeda and the Islamic State. Meanwhile, thousands of computerized
bots pushed repetitive pro-Trump
messages on Twitter, persuading
many actual humans to respond.
All these games are familiar: Russians have used similar tactics for
years in Europe, where pro-Russian
social-media users on Facebook, Twitter and many other platforms have
long sought to amplify support for
parties of the far left and the far right.
During Germany’s recent elections,
official Russian media and networks
of Russian bots tweeted and posted
messages warning of immigration’s
dire threat to Germany and pushing
the cause of Alternative for Germany,
an anti-immigrant party.
As in the past, the Russian advertisements did not create ethnic strife
or political divisions, either in the
United States or in Europe. Instead,
they used divisive language and emotive messages to exacerbate existing
divisions. As in the past, it’s enormously misleading to name “Russia”
as the source of the problem. The old
KGB had whole departments devoted
to the invention of rumors and the
creation of fake extremists; the KGB’s
institutional descendants simply realized, sooner than most, that socialmedia campaigns are a cheap way for
an impoverished ex-superpower to
meddle in other countries’ politics.
But in 2016, they were one of many
groups — among them the Trump
campaign and a whole network of
conspiracy-minded and alt-right
trolls — who built targeted Facebook
groups and bought divisive advertisements aimed at carefully sliced and
segmented bits of the population.
The real problem is far broader
than Russia: Who will use these
methods next — and how? If Russians
worked out how to create fake “Black
Lives Matter” Twitter accounts, why
can’t others? I can imagine multiple
groups, many of them proudly American, who might well want to manipulate a range of fake accounts during a
riot or disaster to increase anxiety or
fear. I can imagine a lot of people who
might want to take control of Defense
Department accounts, as Russian
hackers also tried to do, to send false
information during a military conflict. There is no big barrier to entry in
this game: It doesn’t cost much, it
doesn’t take much time, it isn’t particularly high-tech, and it requires no
special equipment. Facebook, Google
and Twitter, not Russia, have provided the technology to create fake
accounts and false advertisements, as
well as the technology to direct them
at particular parts of the population.
Many other countries and political
groups — on the left, the right, you
name it — will quickly figure out how
to use them.
In part, this malicious world grew
so quickly out of ignorance — people
didn’t know, simply, how this all
worked — but that’s not an excuse any
longer. There is no reason existing
laws on transparency in political advertising, on truth in advertising or
indeed on libel should not apply to
social media as well as traditional
media. There is a better case than ever
against anonymity, at least against
anonymity in the public forums of
social media and comment sections,
as well as for the elimination of
social-media bots. Facebook’s own
experiments have shown that conversations are more civilized when people use their own names. The right to
free speech is something that is granted to humans, not bits of computer
code.
There is no chance that the Trump
White House will show any leadership on this issue, given that it has
been the main beneficiary of these
damaging and divisive techniques.
But other political leaders — in Congress, in the states — have an obligation to think about it. So do citizens,
so do schools — and so do tech
companies. The alternative is a dystopia in which election-year dirty
tricks become a way of life for everyone.

An action plan for the opposition
R
eformers are by nature impatient.
But historically their victories
have come from long, sustained
efforts that began in periods
when conservatives were dominant.
Many aspects of Franklin Roosevelt’s
program were first advanced during the
administrations of Calvin Coolidge and
Herbert Hoover. They reached fruition
when the political atmosphere changed.
In his book on the great progressive
Fiorello La Guardia’s time in Congress
during the Roaring ’20s and early ’30s, the
historian Howard Zinn noted that “the
impressive legislative structure of the
famed first hundred days of the New Deal
owed much to the foundation dug earlier”
by La Guardia and his like-minded colleagues battling in the wilderness of a
stand-pat era.
Those seeking to deepen democracy,
battle corruption and promote justice
need to be ready when their moment
comes.
This is why the recent introduction of
the “We the People” Democracy Reform
Act of 2017 by Rep. David E. Price (D-N.C.)
and Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) could prove
to be an important milestone even if the
conflict-of-interest maven who occupies
the White House and the Republicans
who currently dominate Congress choose
to ignore it.
The bill is a compendium of ideas
aimed at fixing particular problems in our
political system. But its comprehensiveness underscores that the republican form
of our government is being undermined
by the rising power of oligarchic big
money in politics and the increasingly
unrepresentative nature of our institutions.
Thus do Price and Udall propose a
system of matching public funds for small
contributions that would create a strong
incentive for politicians to rely on large
numbers of modest donations from rankand-file citizens rather than on the massive stacks of money made available by
billionaires.
Responding to the scandal of Russian
interference in our election and the
broader rise of advertising by shadowy
groups about which voters know nothing,
Price and Udall would expand disclosure
rules to include paid Internet and email
communications as well as robo-calls.
As a summary of the House version of
the bill notes, “Corporations, labor
unions, Super PACs and other groups
would be required to have their top official
appear in and take responsibility for the
ads, and the top five donors to a group
would have to be listed in the ads.” Voters
should know who is trying to influence
them.
The bill also takes on gerrymandering
by requiring states to establish independent citizen redistricting commissions to
draw congressional district boundaries. It
fights voter suppression by establishing
automatic and same-day voter registration nationwide. And it addresses some of
President Trump’s specific abuses. It requires all presidential nominees to release
their income-tax returns. Both the president and vice president would have to
divest themselves from any financial interest posing a potential conflict. Presidential visitor logs would also be made
public.
“Our democracy is in trouble, as Donald
Trump’s presidency has thrown into sharp
relief,” Price said in an interview. “Some of
our bill’s provisions deal specifically with
Trump’s behavior . . . but many of these

For some survivors, no leaving Las Vegas
A victim’s out-of-state family, stuck in the city’s hotels and hospitals, faces an inescapable wait for recovery
BY
S ARAH K APLAN
IN LAS VEGAS
T
he goodbyes were brief.
What can you say to a
man whose wife is in
intensive care with a
bullet in her brain?
Francisco Calzadillas’s family
just offered him their tightest hugs
and words of encouragement:
“You’re so strong.” “Take care.”
“Please, please let us know if you
need anything.”
It had been a week since Jovanna Calzadillas, 30, was critically
wounded in the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip. As her
husband kept vigil at her bedside,
more than 45 family members —
siblings, godparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends so close they
might as well be brothers — converged on the city to support them.
“But now they have to get back
to their lives,” Francisco, 32, said
after the crowd had gone. “I want
them to.”
For Francisco, there is no leaving
Las Vegas. His wife, Jovanna, remains on life support, her prognosis unclear, and he will not consider
returning to their Queen Creek,
Ariz., home without her. He has
settled into his new reality: Spending 14-hour days in the intensive
care unit at University Medical
Center. Eating bad pizza in the
hospital cafeteria. Collapsing into
bed in an impersonal hotel room
each night, waking up in the mornings alone.
But as long as Jovanna clings to
life, Francisco holds on to the hope
that one day they, too, will get to go
home.
It had been Jovanna’s idea to
come here for the Route 91 Harvest
country music festival. Francisco, a
police officer and master sergeant
in the Air National Guard, had just
returned from an eight-month deployment to Kuwait. In his absence, Jovanna was the one who
kept the family going, who made
sure the children ate and got them
to dentist appointments, who did
so much of the household’s worrying and supplied so much of its
light.
“It’ll be good for us,” she told
Francisco when they bought the
tickets — although he suspected
the bigger draw was Jason Aldean,
Jovanna’s favorite country singer
and the festival’s closing act. He
teased her about it on the five-hour
drive from Arizona, in between talk
of old memories and new plans.
Jovanna was right: The trip was
good, and when Aldean stepped
out onstage, she whooped and
grinned while Francisco filmed her
with his phone. The crowd of thousands roared at the guitar solo —
many, like the Calzadillases, had
come to Vegas just for this.

During the next song, the shooting began.
There was confusion, then chaos. Jovanna collapsed. Francisco
reached for the back of her head
and found it covered in blood. A
man whose name Francisco never
learned told him to take his shirt off
so he could plug Jovanna’s wound,
and another stranger grabbed Jovanna’s legs to help Francisco carry
her to a nearby police car. The two
officers in it didn’t ask questions
when Francisco shouted “She’s
been shot”; they just helped the
couple into the back seat and sped
toward the hospital. Jovanna was
one of the first patients to arrive.
Later, Francisco would think
about those people — how they
hadn’t hesitated before doing what
needed to be done. He would want
to learn their names, to thank
them. If Jovanna lives, their speed
will probably be what saved her.
But right then the nurses were
wheeling his wife away, a doctor
came out and told him that Jovanna probably wouldn’t survive her
wound. In that moment, Francisco
felt lonelier than he had been in his
entire life.
His first call was to Orlando, his
brother and best friend. Orlando,
25, was shocked to hear his older
sibling sob into the phone. “I’ve
never heard him cry like that before,” he said. “I’ve never heard him
cry.”
Orlando and a friend drove
through the night to meet Francisco at the hospital. In the hours and
days that followed, dozens more
family members from Arizona
streamed into the city — enough to
take over 18 rooms at three hotels.
With them came Francisco’s children, 11-year-old Eli and 3-year-old
Ariel.
Since only two people could be
in Jovanna’s hospital room, the
Calzadillas clan filled the visitors
lounge at the ICU, dispelling the
sterile silence with muted laughter
and murmured memories. They

kept Orlando’s phone buzzing with
calls about lodging logistics, donations of clothes, deliveries of homemade tamales by a friend of a friend
who lives in town.
And Francisco began to feel
hope — hope that was bolstered
Tuesday when Jovanna, finally, miraculously, opened her eyes.
“She’s stronger than they realized,” Francisco said.
Doctors performed surgery to
patch the hole in Jovanna’s head,
but the swelling in her brain is so
bad they could not risk removing
the bullet lodged there. They still
don’t know whether she’ll recover
or, if she does, what kind of life
she’ll lead.
For now, she is too fragile to be
transferred to a facility in Phoenix,
closer to home.
“It’s just wait and see,” Francisco
said.
And that’s what he does. He
arrives at the hospital every morning before sunrise and stays until
long after dark. He avoids the news.
He doesn’t remember to eat unless
Orlando brings him food.
When officials announced that
survivors could start collecting belongings they had lost fleeing the
festival, friends went to pick up

not hold here. Living in this state’s
most beautiful spots has always
required a sacrifice in safety, even
in the unique places for rest and
relaxation.
“Life is a trade-off,” said David
Frame, who has lived here for 30
years and patrols on his bike each
morning to check his neighbors’
empty houses in defiance of the
evacuation order. “We will all
change; the character will change.
But I think it will make us stronger.”
Californians have long accepted
a measure of danger in exchange
for the beauty of where they live —
whether on the muddy cliffsides of
Malibu and Topanga Canyon, in
the dust-dry fire zones of Southern
California or along the fault lines
around San Francisco.
That devil’s bargain did not appear to apply to a collection of
counties north of the Bay Area,
commonly known as California
wine country, until a hot overnight
wind whipped up a week ago. Since
then, fires have killed 41 people,
displaced nearly 100,000 more and
destroyed thousands of homes,
from multimillion-dollar to mobile.
Most of those killed have been
elderly, evidence of the area’s attraction as a beautiful and safe
place to retire. Among them were
three couples, married for decades
and unable to escape the windblown Tubbs fire as it crested the
ridgelines on the eastern outskirts
of Santa Rosa.
No one here was blind to the risk
of living in near-constant drought
conditions, and of the steady push
of development from city centers

brush in the dry hills outside. But
some say it was easy to forget given
the region’s history of being mostly
fire-free, even as similar areas in
the state’s south burn every year.
“It’s always been obvious to even
the casual observer,” said Chip
Sandborn, who was born and
raised in the city of Sebastopol in
neighboring Sonoma County.
Sandborn is a 66-year-old tree
expert who during a recent dawn
parked along Mark West Springs
Road to watch the valleys fill with
purple smoke from a fire burning
in the next canyon.
The last major fire in the area, he
said, was in 1964, when the area
was far more sparsely populated.
But it was not nearly as damaging
as this one, and so it was easily
forgotten over the decades.
“People get complacent; they do
a little clearing of their land, but the
embers don’t care,” said Sandborn,
who has been hired by the state to
study the fire’s effects on the region’s diverse range of trees. “Perhaps for a moment after this, the
complacency will end. But it will
kick in again, it’s human nature,
and we’ll have this conversation
again in 50 years.”
This region is known for its
picturesque places and sophisticated farm-to-table ethic by those who
have made it one of the state’s
prime tourist destinations. The
wine industry will suffer, and so
will the empty tasting rooms along
Washington and Lincoln streets
here.
But the damage is most acute in
the beautifully ordinary places people lived — the charred houses with
the hurriedly abandoned jogging
stroller still out front, the driveways lined with melted recycling
bins, the front yards prepped for
Halloween with faux spider webs
and plastic tombstones. The children are nowhere in sight.
The road rises and dips out
through vineyards as it runs from
Calistoga west toward Santa Rosa,
the Sonoma County seat. After a
few miles the valley narrows, creating what became a wind tunnel for
the fire as it roared toward the city.
Wood utility poles, burned from
the bottom, dangle precariously
from power lines. Like mile markers, brick chimneys spike up from
foundations, the only remains of
expensive homes. Mustangs and
pickup trucks sit on rims, their tires
melted.
What were once sunken living
rooms are filled now with charred
hot water tanks, roof debris and
smashed china services. Potted
palms and abalone shells mark out
what was once an entry walkway to
a home with a valley view beyond.
The route goes from those custom-home addresses to tract housing as it hits the edge of Santa Rosa.
The comfortably middle-class
Mark West Estates is the gateway
there.
Metal frames of what were once
two-car garages stand like soccer
goals across the broad, burned
landscape. Singed palm trees —
tion center. Francisco was only
interested in the phone for the
photos it contained of him and his
wife on the night of the concert —
smiling, standing, whole. For him,
that was when time stopped.
But for the rest of his family, he
knew, life had to go on. Cousin
Mario had a son back in Arizona.
Uncle Tony needed to return to his
job. Three-year-old Ariel was exhausted by the upheaval; one afternoon in the UMC visitors lounge,
she kicked her legs and whined for
her parents.
“I want Daddy. I want to go to
him.”
Lupita, Francisco’s sister, looked
distraught. Francisco was in Jovanna’s room, where he’d been all day.
“You want to go with me? We’re
going swimming.”
Ariel only twisted in her stroller
and cried, “No.”
So on Sunday, Francisco sent
everyone home. Only Eli, Orlando
and Jovanna’s parents remained.
Eli told his father he’d leave when
Mom did. Orlando told his brother
he’d stay wherever Francisco was.
“I told him, ‘Not just your life
priorities changed,’ ” the younger
man recalled. “Mine have, too. My
life has changed, too.”
After the goodbyes, Orlando
headed out to buy lunch. He
checked his phone — there were
several messages from friends
wanting an update on Jovanna —
then he scrolled through Facebook,
pausing to watch a video of Hurricane Nate making landfall on the
Gulf Coast.
With his thumb, he swiped away
from the images of the country’s
latest disaster.
He returned an hour later, carrying a bag of chips and rice bowls
from Chipotle and persuaded Francisco to come down to the hospital
cafeteria to eat.
It was quiet — just a few nurses
drinking coffee, some visitors talking softly on the outdoor patio. A
“prayer box” sat atop a counter
beside a stack of blank cards.
But Francisco recalled what it
looked like a few days ago, when
the room was packed with tables of
donated clothes and food and volunteers handed out bottled water
and well-wishes to everyone who
walked through.
“I hated this place,” he said. “I
hated the Strip. I hated everything. . . . But with everything they
did, I love Las Vegas now.”
Even so, “I will never come back,”
he said.
But then he smiled, knowing
how stubborn Jovanna can be.
“She’s going to want to go back for a
Jason Aldean concert.”
If she does, he will join her.
For Jovanna, he would go anywhere. Even here.

There was no cruel whim of the
wind in the estates, the odd fortune
in fire where one home burns and
its neighbor is saved by a shift. All is
gone.
A few blocks from the estates,
Peter Farber and Stevie Lazo,
masked against the smoke, visited
a friend’s home on a recent morning despite the evacuation orders
in place.
The two were equipped with
buckets — one filled with feed, the
other a single egg. They were tending chickens, house by neighbor’s
empty house.
Farber, a clinical engineer, said
he has felt safe from fire since he
moved into the area nine years ago.
“I was wrong; this was a whirlwind,” he said. “It will undoubtedly
change here with all the personal
loss, the shock. For us, it’s survivor’s
guilt. How were we spared when so
many others close by were not?”
Lazo said she has been engaged
to Farber for 13 years and “will be
perpetually.” She worked in the film
industry in Los Angeles until retiring.
She lived through the fires and
the earthquakes that struck often
in and around that city, but never
thought much about disaster in her
adopted county.
“To me, this was heaven on
Earth,” she said. “We love our
neighbors; we still love this place.”
A few miles away, down Mendocino Avenue, is the Journey’s End
Mobile Home Park where, a week
ago, Linda Tunis was overwhelmed
by the fast-moving fire. She was 69
years old.
The park is framed by a Kaiser
Permanente hospital, evacuated
and largely undamaged, and the
stretch of Highway 101 that the
flames jumped that night.
It is the urban end to the quaint
Calistoga start of the route, a
fenced-off corner lot of twisted mobile home frames and ruined cars.
No one has returned to sort
through what is left, only the police
in search of human remains.

cavalry leader J.E.B. Stuart at the reenactment. Participants said they
were determined to go on with the event despite a threatening letter.
reenactors concluded their battle on a rolling patch of grass 80 miles
west of Washington.
In normal years, taps would be played and each side would march
back to its tent encampments. But this was hardly a normal year. Last
week, organizers announced they had received a letter threatening
“bodily harm” to attendees. And Saturday, the battlefield had to be
temporarily cleared because a suspicious device, possibly a pipe bomb,
was found.
“U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” the reenactors began shouting, underscoring
not just their sense of patriotism but the umbrage many felt at having
their hobby dragged into the national debate over race and Confederateera symbolism.
“We wanted to send a message,” said Keith MacGregor, 56, from
Lebanon, Pa., who was playing the role of a Union infantry captain for
the reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek, held not far from here. “We
wanted to show the U.S. that we aren’t going to let some terrorist, or
some nut, stop the event. I was never prouder of people in our hobby.”
Before and after the minute-long “U.S.A.” chant, the two sides who
acted out the battle came together and thanked each other for coming —
and for staying. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played and sung. So
was “Dixie.”

sink Va. water park
BY
P ATRICIA S ULLIVAN
Alexandria’s City Council is
considering whether to pull the
plug on one of the region’s most
popular water parks, which
draws more than 100,000 customers every summer.
A citizen advisory group says
the city, which faces a tight budget, looming capital costs and
growing demands for athletic
fields and facilities, could generate revenue and serve its own
residents better by replacing
Great Waves Waterpark with a
year-round indoor or outdoor
recreational facility.
The proposal, and a related
discussion about whether Alexandria should remain a member
of the Northern Virginia Regional
Park Authority, could cause a
fissure in the nearly 60-year-old
regional alliance, concerning
leaders of other jurisdictions that
are members.
“This is a little troubling because this partnership has existed
for decades and it’s been good for
everyone,” said Penny Gross (D),
a Fairfax County supervisor
whose district adjoins Alexandria. “When a jurisdiction starts
talking about pulling out, it really
damages the fabric of the community. Nova Parks is really a benefit
to everybody.”
Jay Fisette (D), chairman of the
Arlington County Board, said the
parks authority “adds value to
every member. Any potential
change is of interest to us.”
Last year, the City Council
asked its Parks and Recreation
Commission, an advisory panel
made up of residents, to look into
whether another 40-year lease to
the regional parks authority to
operate Great Waves Waterpark
was the best use of the city’s
26-acre Cameron Run property.

back a transportation program
that many of the city’s elderly and

Transport DC, which allows
qualifying residents to take a cab
anywhere in the city for any purpose for $5, is now restricted to
trips for medical and employment needs.
The changes affect as many as
14,000 city residents who can’t use
or have difficulty using Metro or
the bus to get around and have
relied on Transport DC for outings
such as grocery shopping, attending classes and going to church.
Transport DC started three
years ago as a pilot program to
take residents to dialysis appointments. But its use and popularity
have grown, and D.C. officials say
the cutbacks are necessary to stay

budget.

The dangers of too much It’s time to upgrade the college admissions process
screen time — in school
Last year, I spoke
to a group of
parents of high
school students in
JEFFREY J.
Connecticut about
SELINGO
college
admissions and a
parent asked me afterward why
it’s so hard to get accepted to
college these days. I said it’s
difficult to get into only some
colleges.
“Yes, selective colleges,” she
corrected herself, but then added,
“What makes a college selective?”
It’s a good question that most
students anxious to go to one
probably can’t answer. As I
mentioned in last week’s column,
selectivity is largely defined by
Barron’s in its publication
“Profiles of American Colleges.”
But our perception of
selectivity has also changed
drastically in the last three
decades.
Recently, I uncovered a copy of
the U.S. News & World Report
college guide from 1988, the first
year the magazine published
annual rankings of colleges
(before that it had published
them every other year). The guide
is a window into a much different
era in college admissions, one
that many of the parents of
today’s high school students
experienced as applicants. What
is perhaps most revealing is a list
of acceptance rates for topranked colleges.
Many of the numbers seem like
typos when compared to today’s
rates. Take Johns Hopkins
University. In 1988, it accepted
54 percent of applicants; last
year, its acceptance rate was
11 percent. Johns Hopkins is not
alone in seeing its rate plummet
over the past three decades. The
University of Pennsylvania was
35 percent in 1988; last year,

who will remake
our world. The
headline on a piece by socialmedia scholar danah boyd (a
lowercase person) said parents
should “let kids run wild online”
to lead us to a brighter future.
Joe Clement and Matt Miles,
two social studies teachers, have
been reading such prophecies by
technology activists for years. But
in their Fairfax County high
school classes, Clement and Miles
aren’t seeing that. Their students
use their devices almost entirely
for recreation, not to seek brave
new ideas.
“Hand a kid an iPad and now
it’s reasonable to expect him or
her to use it primarily for
educational purposes?” they said
in their new book “Screen
Schooled.” “Only someone who
has spent almost no time with
children could possibly believe
that.”
Last week, I discussed their
recommendation that teachers
reject most of ed-tech and instead
teach simply and directly to
encourage understanding and
thought. They want to improve
student skills and human
interaction, not show them how
to look up stuff on Google.
They know what too much
screen time can do. A student
dozed in class because he woke up
at 2 a.m., when his parents were
asleep, to play video games. A
study showed teens spending an
average of nine hours a day on
entertainment media. Clement
and Miles estimated, based on
several studies, that about
75 percent of high school students
walk the halls with cellphones in
their hands rather than in
pockets or purses.
Citing much research, they
concluded, “the new digital world
is a toxic environment for the
developing minds of young
people. Rather than making
digital natives superlearners, it
has stunted their mental growth.”
Social studies teachers, they
reported, are being encouraged to
move “to DBQs, or documentbased questions, which are
simply research papers where the
teacher has done all the research
for the students.” Clement and
Miles stick with real research
papers, after students learn about
types of evidence and plan
investigative strategies. Yet their
students often become frustrated
when devices don’t lead them to a
useful source right away.
What can teachers and parents
do? When Clement and Miles
complained to ed-tech
supporters, they were told they
didn’t understand the subtle
wonders of new learning.
Sensible parents keep screen time
within reason at home. But with
superintendents and school
boards so drawn to tech, what can
those parents do about trends
that have gone so far in class?
The authors suggested asking
questions at PTA meetings.
When administrators say, “We
have to prepare our kids for the
future,” Clement and Miles said,
ask them exactly how the latest
devices help students learn to
think, focus and build
community. Ask if school officials
have any research showing the
advantages of using screens for
instruction. They may have data
on an increase in engagement,
but that is not the same thing as
learning. Playing a video game all
day shows engagement, the
authors said, but that is not
evidence of increased academic
achievement.
This suggested question was
my favorite: “May I opt my child
out of screen-based instructional
activities?”
Most Washington-area school
districts told me that they do not
have a policy on this. Irene
Cromer, spokeswoman for Prince
William County Public Schools,
cited a complex regulation
covering challenges of nontextbook learning materials but
said any request would lead the
principal and teacher to “try to
resolve the parent’s concerns.”
Fairfax County officials told
Clement that his children could
opt out of bringing a computer
home but still had to do work
posted online. Asking the
questions, the authors said, helps
those with concerns understand
the situation before they try to
mobilize other parents to loosen
the ed-tech grip.
I am not sure that will work,
but it’s worth a try. In some
instances, such as acceleration
and remediation, online
programs have a place if well
designed. But so far, they appear
to be a poor substitute for good
teachers in classrooms.

9 percent. Washington University
in St. Louis, 62 percent; last year,
16 percent.
Not all colleges have seen their
selectivity drop so dramatically.
Only about 10 percent of colleges
are substantially more selective
now compared to 50 years ago,
according to research by Caroline
M. Hoxby, an economics
professor at Stanford University.
So why have acceptance rates
fallen precipitously at dozens of
colleges?
Simply put, they are getting
more applicants than ever before.
Even as more students are
applying, these top-ranked
schools haven’t substantially
increased the size of their
incoming classes. The top 20
national universities in the U.S.
News & World Report rankings,
for instance, enroll only about
100,000 students out of 17 million
undergraduates nationwide. So
the denominator is rising as the
numerator stays the same in an
equation that is more like the
odds of playing the lottery for
most students and parents.
For these top-ranked schools,
the admissions business has
evolved from a local and regional
industry to a national one in
which colleges can attract
applicants from a wider
geographic reach. That has led to
what Hoxby calls a “re-sorting” of
college students where “their
choices are driven far less by
distance and far more by a
college’s resources and student
body.”
These colleges have also
encouraged more applicants with
outreach to high school students
and mailings. Colleges buy more
than 80 million names of test
takers from the College Board
annually. In some cases, schools
simply encouraged more
students to apply as a way to
improve their standings in the
rankings: More applicants help
drive down acceptance rates, a
key metric in the methodology of
many rankings.
Technology has also played a
role as applying to college has
become ever easier. Colleges now
receive, on average, 94 percent of
their applications online. More
than 800,000 students used the
Common Application last year to
submit some 3.5 million
applications to more than 700
colleges. Plenty of students today
apply to colleges they have hardly
any intention of attending.
Proposals to improve the
efficiency and fairness of the
admissions system proliferate.
One common refrain promotes a
matching system, like the
National Resident Matching
Program, which uses a
computerized algorithm to pair
the preferences of medical school
graduates and residency
programs as closely as possible,
based on rank-order lists each
side submits. Establishing such a
system for more than 3 million
high school seniors is surely a
daunting, if not impossible, task.
Even so, some colleges are
planning the building blocks for
such a tool. Nearly 60 schools
experimented last year with a
new shared application that aims
to compete with the popular
Common Application. One
feature of the tool, designed by
the Coalition for Access,
Affordability and Success, is a
virtual “locker.” It allows students
as early as ninth grade to upload
their written work, videos, photos
and other materials that show off
their potential beyond a
transcript. At first, the locker is
accessed only by students, but
over time they can open it to their

Advocates unabated on college assault
ASSAULT FROM B1
tion announced changes to guidance on Title IX, the federal antidiscrimination law.
“Students all across the country
are going to take this issue on as
one to champion,” said Felicia
McGinty, vice chancellor for student affairs at Rutgers University
at New Brunswick in New Jersey.
“They don’t want us to retrench.
They want us to move forward and
continue to embrace our commitment around these issues.
“For those people who read political tea leaves, I think they’ve
got it wrong if they think this
generation of students is just going to say, ‘Hey, okay, that’s last
year’s issue. We’ve moved on to
something else.’ I don’t think so.”
At George Mason University in
Fairfax, the work to combat campus sexual assault begins before
students arrive in the classroom.
At this year’s freshman convocation, students heard the university’s president talk about the importance of taking care of themselves and one another, said Rose
Pascarell, vice president for university life. They also learned
about student rights and responsibilities and went through training
on how to intervene in situations
that appear troubling.
By reaching first-year students,
schools can build a foundation of
knowledge about the topic, said
Samantha Skaller, a master’s degree student at McGill University
in Montreal who is involved in the
“It’s On Us” sexual-assault awareness campaign.
“And then your second year, you
get to learn more, and your third
and fourth year, you get to continue to learn more,” she said.
Skaller, who went to Syracuse
University as an undergraduate,
recalls her freshman experience
with sexual-assault prevention
education. “We had to do some
tutorials about consent, but no
one took it seriously. No one
watched it,” she said.
Skaller didn’t watch, either. But
twice, she said, she was the victim
of rape while at Syracuse. She never reported the allegations to law
enforcement, but the second time,
she went to the university with a
formal Title IX complaint.
The process was draining, and
the result was disappointing: The
man was found not responsible.
But while at Syracuse, Skaller

also became an advocate working
to change the campus culture. She
saw the It’s On Us campaign
spread. Students signed pledges.
Professors mentioned it in class
materials.
“We have a lot of progress to
make,” she said, “but in five years, I
have such a good feeling that the
passion is still going to be there
and we’re still going to be creating
small movements of change.”
Surveys show how often sexual
assault occurs on campuses. A
2015 Association of American Universities study found that more
than 20 percent of female undergraduates at prominent universities were the victims of sexual
assault or misconduct.
That same year, a Washington
Post-Kaiser Family Foundation survey reached a similar conclusion,
reporting that 20 percent of current and recent female college students experienced sexual assault.
The Association of American
Universities, a group of research
universities in the United States
and Canada, followed up on its
2015 survey with a report in April
that pointed to increased staffing,
training and student support.
All the responding schools had
changed (or were working to
change) education and training
for faculty and students in the past
three academic years. The report
indicated that schools were dedi-
cating more attention to training
their campus communities on
how to step in during troubling
situations.
“There is no magic bullet,” the
report said, “or one-size-fits-all approach: Universities have undertaken a wide variety of actions
including increased and targeted
training, greater awareness-building, better coordinated data collection . . . and greater levels of
collaboration within institutions
and their communities.”
In its short time at the institution, for example, Empower AU
has already become a point of
pride at the school, which was
recently lauded for its sexualassault prevention efforts.
Mickey Irizarry, director of
American University’s student
wellness center, pointed to the
2011 “Dear Colleague” letter that
laid out guidance for schools on
handling sexual-assault complaints as a turning point. At the
same time it came out, she said,
there was a push from students
who had a “desire to hold their
university accountable to do this
type of programming” and do
work around the topic.
“They were asking for more resources, asking for more support,
asking for policies and for more
transparency,” she said.

important, to colleges through
the admissions process.
Such a tool imagines a future
where instead of waiting for
applications to arrive each year,
colleges could conduct searches
of data that students and parents
choose to make available.
The current admissions
system was designed for a
different era when fewer students
were going to college and it was
more difficult to apply. Given the
ease of applying to college these
days and the incentives offered
by the rankings, some colleges
have been able to game the
system through a combination of
strategic marketing and public
relations to look more selective.
Admissions has long been the
lever college leaders pulled to
improve prestige. In higher
education, it’s difficult, if not
impossible, to stray far from the
pack and think differently about
how to recruit classes. While
most colleges accept a majority of
students who apply, the schools
that get outsized attention are
selective colleges, which have
built an admissions system that is
becoming increasingly
impossible to navigate for a
generation of anxious families.

ics at George Mason, called the
2011 guidance a “game changer.”
“It spurred colleges and universities to develop what I call a Title
IX infrastructure, which means,
okay, so how do we do this in a way
that recognizes that we want to
create a campus that’s free from
sexual assault, dating violence and
stalking,” he said.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos spoke on George Mason’s campus in September, delivering remarks vowing to replace a “failed
system” of campus sexual-assault
enforcement. Later that month,
the Trump administration rescinded the Obama-era guidance.
Even with the changes, Pascarell, George Mason’s vice president for university life, said she
did not expect her institution or
others in higher education to
backtrack, a sentiment Williams
echoed.
“With the advocacy that we’ve
seen and the commitment that
institutions have made to their
students, they’re not going to let
us go backward, even if folks wanted to,” Williams said. “The cat’s out
of the bag a bit here, in terms of
this being the expectation that
students have when they arrive on
campus.”

particularly vibrant, perhaps
because our brains have been
primed for learning and things
besides the state capitals slip in

I still remember the time in
third or fourth grade when I was
playing tag with classmates
during recess at Christ the King
Elementary School in Mesa,
Ariz. Our teacher — Sister

playing with us and one overly
exuberant boy grabbed at her

and when her head covering
came off, auburn locks cascaded
out.
The game stopped, and we all
stared at her. Who knew nuns

I asked readers to share their

staple, show and tell. Once when
John Gibbs was in elementary
school in the District he decided
to structure his show-and-tell

on his grandfather’s farm in
North Carolina, learning how to
handle livestock and planting
winter corn.
“I stated that I had the
opportunity to plant corn in late

Northern Virginia. “As I
presented my report the teacher
immediately blasted me into
complete embarrassment,
informing me and all of the class
that corn was planted only in the
spring and never, never, never in
July or August.”
A dejected John slunk to his
seat after the dressing down.
“However, later in the school
year, the teacher discovered that
many Southern states do plant
winter corn in late July or
August and informed me that I
was correct in my information,”
John wrote. “Of course, she

WATER PARK FROM B1
current lease, which expires in
June 2021, “is not in the best
interests of the city of Alexandria.
The limited season use leaves the
park unavailable for . . . the majority of the year and neither the
lease nor the seasonal use provides revenue to the city.”
The city pays about $664,000
in annual dues to the regional
parks authority. Cameron Run is
one of the authority’s biggest
moneymakers, generating about
$700,000 beyond its operating
costs, which helps support the
authority’s 32 parks, golf courses
and other sites, including the
historic Carlyle House in Alexandria.
Stella Koch, chairwoman of the
Nova Parks board, said more than
half of the excess revenue goes
toward Carlyle House, thus providing a direct benefit to the city.
In a letter to the City Council,
Koch said that the board is willing
to consider a shorter-term lease
while the city ponders its next
steps. She also noted that if the
city takes back the Cameron Run
property, it would have to spend
its own money to redevelop it into
a different type of facility.
“We were ready to spend some
money on upgrades to the facility,
but obviously that’s contingent
on having a lease,” Koch said in an
interview. “The reality is if they
take [the property] back, they’re
going to have to come up with all
the resources to build something
else.”
Alexandria is facing an expensive sewer replacement project as
well as higher costs for Metro and
the loss of the Transportation
Security Administration headquarters to Springfield, in neighboring Fairfax. At the same time,
the portion of the city where the
water park is located is undergoing considerable redevelopment,
with about 10,000 new residents
expected by 2040.
With recreational space already scarce, Alexandria’s parks
commission said Cameron Run’s
land could be better used as a
year-round indoor complex or
outdoor fields, playing courts and
trails, which would generate revenue for the city from user fees.
The council has asked City
Manager Mark Jinks for a formal
recommendation, which could
come as soon as this week. Mayor
Allison Silberberg (D) said she
would want public input before
voting on any proposal.
“Every park we have, and how
it is utilized, is a critical discussion,” Silberberg said. “I’m keeping an open mind.”
Vice Mayor Justin Wilson (D)
said that “if the city were to take
back the property, it’s not likely
we would have hundreds of millions of dollars to develop it.”
The tension between Alexandria and Nova Parks began about
three years ago, when the parks
authority sought to extend its
lease another 40 years in exchange for building a new waterslide. The city turned that offer
down.
In 2016, Nova Parks sought a
20-year lease extension in exchange for the purchase of a
historic house in Old Town. After
delaying the decision a few
months, the city ended up buying
the historic house itself, with
grants from several foundations.
Nova Parks was formed in 1959
to protect water sources, conserve open spaces and create areas where people could enjoy the
outdoors. Alexandria joined in
the 1960s.
Bill Dickinson, who represented Alexandria on the board from
1997 to 2009, said the city begged
the parks authority to put Great
Waves at Cameron Run starting
in the 1970s, because they wanted
to draw people to what was then
an unappealing, mostly industrial area.

Rules for water-quality trading start to form
BY
P AMELA W OOD
Maryland is setting the rules to
allow property owners and others
to buy and sell credits for environmental cleanup, an emerging
strategy for improving the health
of the Chesapeake Bay and its
rivers.
The Maryland Department of
the Environment has drawn up
the regulations that will guide
how companies, local governments and property owners that
go above and beyond in waterquality-improvement goals can
earn credits to be sold to others
that are struggling to meet environmental bench marks.
Supporters of water-quality
trading say that, when done properly, the practice uses market forces
to achieve environmental benefits.
“It’s a very important step, and
it’s a necessary step,” said state
Environment Secretary Ben
Grumbles, who added that the regulations will “jump-start the restoration economy.”
Maryland and other states in
the Chesapeake Bay watershed are
required by federal law to reduce
pollution enough to eventually get
the bay off the list of the nation’s
most impaired waterways, and
Buying, selling credits for

credits aims to address one of the
struggles of restoring the health of
the bay — namely, that some cleanup projects are much more expensive than others.
Projects on farms, such as
planting cover crops in the winter
or adding trees along farm
streams, are less expensive than,
for example, upgrading a sewagetreatment plant or adding stormwater controls in urban areas.
The Chesapeake Bay and its rivers are plagued by an overabundance of the nutrients nitrogen
and phosphorus that flow into the
bay from farms, lawns, septic systems, sewage plants and poorly
managed storm water. Those nutrients fuel the growth of algae in
the water, which then use up dissolved oxygen in the water as
they decompose, leaving oxygen-
deprived “dead zones” where fish,
crabs and oysters struggle to survive.
The proposed regulations for
nutrient trading set rules for identifying who can earn credits that
they can sell and where they can
be sold.
The regulations will be reviewed by a joint Senate-House of
Delegates committee in the coming weeks and will be subject to a
public comment period after that.
Officials with the Chesapeake
Bay Foundation, a nonprofit that
advocates for bay restoration, said
the regulations are an important
step but have some flaws they
believe should be fixed.
For example, credits can be
traded within three regions: the
Potomac River watershed, the
Patuxent River watershed and a
third area that includes the rest of
the Western Shore, Eastern Shore
and the Susquehanna River.
Doug Myers, a senior scientist
at the bay foundation, said that
third region is just too big, creating the possibility that polluters in
one area could buy a lot of credits
from areas across the bay — still
allowing localized pollution.
Myers said the foundation is
also concerned the regulations al-
low for credit trading between
states, which he said is “way too
premature.”
Still, Myers said it’s a positive
step to set up a framework for
credit trading.
“Trading isn’t the silver bullet
by any stretch,” Myers said. “But if
it’s done right, it can help us make
load reductions at a lower cost per
pound.”
Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has been a
proponent of water-quality trading and last year proposed an ambitious plan to use $10 million to
start a trading program. After receiving tepid interest from environmentalists and farmers, Hogan agreed to narrow his proposal,
called the Clean Water Commerce
Act, into essentially a $2.5 million
annual grant program to pay for
certain innovative pollutionfighting practices.
Grumbles, the environment
secretary, has said the Clean Water
Commerce Act is giving the state a
chance to try new projects and
determine how much the pollution projects might be worth. He
said the Clean Water Commerce
Act investments, plus the new regulations, will help get trading off
the ground.

Reenactors resolute in having mock battle despite threat
REENACTMENT FROM B1
“You did not see any reenactors
in Charlottesville,” said Confederate reenactor Terry Shelton, referring to the gathering of white
supremacists in the Virginia city
in August. The event turned violent and led to three deaths.
The public was not allowed
onto the battlefield or into the
reenactor camps Sunday, but
could watch the battle from a
distance.
Local and federal law enforcement officials declined Sunday to
describe the “suspicious item”
found at the battlefield here about
4 p.m. Saturday, which prompted
law enforcement to evacuate the
immediate area. Several reenactors said they were told it looked
like a pipe bomb.
In a statement Sunday, the FBI
said that “the device was located
during an annual reenactment of
the Battle of Cedar Creek. No
persons were harmed and the device was rendered safe by the
Virginia State Police.”
Dee Rybiski, an FBI spokeswoman, said Sunday that the bureau “was not elaborating on the
device.”
The FBI is investigating the
incident, along with the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives; the Virginia State Police; the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office; and the Middletown
Police Department.
The battle reenacted Sunday
took place on Oct. 19, 1864, and
was a Union victory.
In August, a two-day reenactment in Manassas — meant to
show how Union and Confederate
soldiers lived during the Civil War
— was canceled. Though there
were no plans to reenact a battle,
several organizers were worried
about possible trouble, given the
racially charged atmosphere nationwide over whether to remove
Battlefield
reenactment
threatened that excrement would
be thrown or weapons fired at the
reenactors.
“I understand why people want
to bring the statues down, why
they want to get rid of the flag,” he
said, watching the battle from the
rear because of a heart attack a
year ago, a huge feather drooping
from his officer’s cap. “But even if
you do . . . the history is still
there.”
He said he and other reenactors
didn’t hesitate to play the role of
Union troops and were mostly
focused on re-creating the battle
as accurately as possible.
Karla Macias and her two
daughters stood at an embalming
tent, watching as a white actor
“operated” on an African American mannequin draped in an
American flag.
Macias, a 43-year-old teacher at
a Christian academy in Inwood,
W.Va., said protesters had “blown
things out of proportion.” She said
she and her daughters, who are
Mexican American, don’t take offense at the Confederate flag.
“I have a hard time with people
trying to erase our history,” she
said. “A country can’t be a country
without a past.”
“This is exciting,” said her elder
daughter, Elizabette, 16. “I wish
they’d advertise this more.”
Yoly Harrell, wearing a long
brown dress and holding a parasol, said she had spent the morning making oatmeal, eggs and
sausage patties for soldiers. A 55year-old nurse in Fredericksburg,
Harrell said she came to the United States years ago from El Salvador.
She said she wasn’t put off by
her history-teacher husband
dressing up as a Confederate soldier. “We had our own war,” she
said of El Salvador. “History stays
there, no matter what people say.”

Civil War monuments.
Last week, organizers of the
Cedar Creek event posted a warning on the group’s website.
“We would like to make everyone aware that the Cedar Creek
Battlefield Foundation has received a letter threatening bodily
harm to attendants of this event,”
the foundation said in the statement. “With this in mind security
has been increased and we ask
that everyone work with us for a
safe and enjoyable event.”
The two-day event started Saturday morning. Frederick County
sheriff’s deputies — some on fourwheelers — stood sentry at the
staging grounds.
All the trappings of previous
years’ events were on display.
There were tent encampments,
where the uniformed soldiers
would spend the night. Other reenactors played the parts of surgeons, embalmers and priests.
There were horses and cannons
and lots of flags.
But as the day progressed, and
reenactments began, spectator
George Rust, from Winchester,
Va., said he thought the threat had
dissuaded people from coming
out.
“There’s not near the spectators,” Rust said. “Usually, on Saturday, you can’t walk around
here.”
The 66-year-old construction
worker, who wore a “Pride of the
South” hat featuring Robert E. Lee
and a Confederate flag, worried
he might have come to the last
reenactment of the Battle of Cedar
Creek. He said that history is under attack and that it’s important,
especially for younger people, to
be learning about it.
“Take that girl there,” he said,
pointing to a grade-schooler in
pink shorts playing with her
mom. “She’s learning. She’s picking it up.”
“The Confederate camp looked
to me only half-strength of what it
was last year,” said Mark Corley,
58, a former co-worker and friend
Sean Geiter, 43, of Middletown,
Del., rides at the site of the
weekend’s reenactment of the
Battle of Cedar Creek near
Middletown, Va.
of Rust’s from Cumberland, Md.
“You have to understand, a lot
of this is family-oriented,” said
Corley, who is retired. “So whether it’s going to materialize or not,
whenever there is a threat like
that made, of course your first
concerns have to be for your wife,
your children.”
“It’s really sad that it’s gotten to
this point where you have organizations or people who are threatening violence,” said Robert Bailey, 62, a retired D.C. police officer
who said he has been coming to
the Cedar Creek reenactments for
21 years.
Bailey said he had heard the

VIRGINIA
FEMA haggled over
disaster aid, study finds
Some local governments
got less than expected
BY
A SSOCIATED P RESS
richmond — Since 1998, the
federal government has given
Virginia and its cities and counties more than $600 million to
help recover from hurricanes,
crippling blizzards and summer
floods.
But a handful of local governments have argued the figure
should be higher. That’s because
they failed to get a total of nearly
$5 million in disaster aid for
certain projects after a yearslong appeals process with the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency.
The haggling was over emergency responder pay, removing
tree stumps or repairing wires,
among other storm-related costs.
According to an analysis by the
Associated Press, some local governments and nonprofit organizations across the nation have
received less than expected from
FEMA after a disaster. Others
were asked to repay some or all of
the aid they received for a project. FEMA often concluded certain projects failed to comply
with its voluminous require-
ments or decided it shouldn’t
have approved the payouts in the
first place.
For example, FEMA funneled
more than $200 million into
Virginia through its public assistance program after Hurricane
Isabel in 2003. But it ultimately
declined to spend more than
$2 million that was requested for
tree stump removal in some of
central Virginia’s cities and counties. The agency ruled the work
wasn’t eligible because the
stumps were less than 24 inches
in size.
After the February 2010 blizzard known as “Snowmaggedon,”
FEMA helped Virginia dig out
with nearly $28 million. But it
denied Fairfax County’s request
to help cover the cost of nearly
$2 million in emergency services.
FEMA said Fairfax lacked documentation to show that longer
hours logged by dispatchers and
the sheriff ’s office were directly
related to the storm. The agency
said the same for additional costs
incurred by the fire department.
All told, FEMA has funded
more than 10,000 projects in
Virginia that add up to $616 million. There were nine appeals of
denied projects. Five failed, and
three recouped at least some of
the money that was initially requested. One appeal was completely successful.

Transport DC restricts service for elderly, disabled again amid budget strains
TRANSPORT FROM B1
with more than 17,000 in June, far
exceeding ridership projections.
Transport DC users have experienced several service reductions since last year, which officials blamed on budget constraints. Advocates and users say
the latest cuts — to continue for
the fiscal year that started Oct. 1
— are unjustified.
The program’s budget is about
$200,000 higher than last year’s,
but officials say that the program’s exponential growth is the
result of its use expanding beyond those it was initially meant
to serve.
“We have to scale back the
program so that we can preserve
it for the most vulnerable,” said
Ernest Chrappah, director of the
city’s Department of For-Hire Vehicles, which oversees Transport
DC.
“I empathize. I understand. I
feel for these people,” Chrappah
said. “What is also real is the
budget. We cannot spend money
we don’t have.”
For riders, that means finding
other ways to get around. About
2,500 use the service frequently;
some take as many as 20 trips a
week, according to the Department of For-Hire Vehicles. The
city subsidy per trip is $23.
Transport DC launched in Oc-
tober 2014 with a budget of
about $1 million. The city expanded it in May 2015 to cover
trips for any purpose within the
District. That option opened up
all kinds of opportunities for
people with special needs, including those who would otherwise use MetroAccess, the
shared-ride, door-to-door paratransit service that Metro provides for the elderly and people
with disabilities.
The program also was an opportunity for the city to save on
expensive paratransit service.
Officials say the District is paying about 44 percent less per trip
than it would pay Metro for providing the same trips through
MetroAccess. Transport DC also
has helped reduce the city’s
MetroAccess subsidy by 100,000
trips — or about $5 million.
Advocates cite these figures as
reason to continue to allow residents to use the Transport DC
program for all city travel.
“It was always intended to take
trips off MetroAccess,” said Heidi
Case, an advocate and user of
Transport DC. “They think that if
these people can’t use Transport
DC they have the MetroAccess
option. That costs more — twice
as much.”
MetroAccess trips cost users
twice the amount of what the fare
would be on the fastest compara-
ble trip if the same trip were
taken on Metro or Metrobus, up
to a maximum of $6.50.
Transport DC became a preferred alternative to MetroAccess, in part because it allows
been allowed to use the service
for any kind of trip from the 1st
through 15th of each month; for
the second half of the month,
rides are restricted to medical
and employment needs.
“I feel for these people. What is also real is the
budget. We cannot spend money we don’t have.”
Ernest Chrappah, director of the District’s Department of For-Hire Vehicles,
which oversees Transport DC
customers to access a ride within
an hour of booking. MetroAccess
trips must be booked 24 hours in
advance. MetroAccess also has a
wider pickup window, and customers can spend hours on the
road while the van makes multiple stops to pick up other passengers, often going far out of a
traveler’s way before reaching
their destination.
Last year, D.C. officials announced plans to implement trip
restrictions for Transport DC after the program reached more
than 16,200 monthly trips, exceeding ridership projections —
and its budget. Officials informed
riders that the explosive growth
had “endangered the fiscal viability of the program” and changes
were necessary.
Since then, customers have
Then this summer, the Department of For-Hire Vehicles issued
a letter alerting users that the
program would need to be cut
back until the end of the fiscal
year in September. Trips could
only be used for work and medical appointments.
Riders and the two taxi companies that provide the service —
D.C. Yellow Cab and Transco —
assumed the restriction would be
lifted at the beginning of the new
fiscal year. And the department’s
website suggested no policy
changes were expected as of
Oct. 1.
“It is anticipated that Transport DC will resume offering eligible customers transportation to
and from any location in the
District with no restrictions during the first half of each month
ending on the 15th of the month,”
a message on the website said.
But on Oct. 3, the agency alerted the taxi companies that the
trip restrictions would continue
indefinitely. That left riders
stranded, Case said. For example,
one customer who had taken the
taxi service to classes in the morning couldn't take the service back
home.
“We don’t understand these
rash decisions that have so much
impact on the disabled and elderly community,” said Roy Spooner,
general manager of D.C. Yellow
Cab.
For the city’s declining taxi
industry, the program has provided a new source of business as it
struggles to compete with ridehailing services such as Uber and
Lyft. About 97 percent of taxi
business in the District comes
from street hails; the remaining is
through dispatched calls. About
2.5 percent of those calls are for
Transport DC service, according
to the Department of For-Hire
Vehicles.
City officials insist the changes
are not cuts, but a return to the
program’s original intent. Advocates question why the city isn’t
allocating the MetroAccess savings to the program.
Chrappah said it’s not simply a
matter of shifting the savings.
And even with the service cuts in
the past year, ridership grew by
45 percent.
In an Oct. 4 letter to the deputy
mayor for planning and economic development, D.C. Council
member Kenyan R. McDuffie (DWard 5) urged the city to reinstate
the regular service immediately,
noting that the program isn’t facing any spending pressures because the fiscal year just started.
“This extension of the reduction in service, without adequate
notice to either users or providers
has severely inconvenienced
some of the District’s most vulnerable citizens,” said McDuffie,
who has oversight of the Department of For-Hire Vehicles.
“If funding is an issue, I would
look favorably upon a reprogramming request from [the Department of For-Hire Vehicles] in
order to continue to provide this
much needed service, and would
urge my council colleagues to so
the same,” McDuffie said.
There is no indication that the
Department of For-Hire Vehicles
plans to revisit its decision.
Chrappah said the department is
exploring ideas such as the possibility of shared rides to reduce
costs.
“For now, it should be abundantly clear that we are preserving the program for the most
vulnerable,” he said.

Vogel’s law firm represents super PACs, ‘dark money’ groups
VOGEL FROM B1
the PACs distribute their largesse.
Between 2005 and 2016, PACs
and nonprofits that have hired
Vogel’s firm spent close to $1 billion on federal elections, representing nearly a quarter of all
outside spending over that period, according to data compiled by
the Center for Responsive Politics.
For the 2016 cycle alone, those
organizations accounted for more
than $234 million of $1.4 billion
in total outside spending.
Critics say Vogel’s firm profits
from a national problem — untraceable money in politics that is
corroding democracy.
“They represent the who’s who
of secret, dark-money groups that
are pumping a lot of money into
our elections,” said Steve Spaulding, chief of strategy for Common
Cause. “She’s not exactly an ethics
lawyer representing mom-andpop nonprofits. . . . We’re talking
about the Koch brothers’ nonprofits.”
Vogel and attorneys working
for her firm — based in rural
Warrenton, 50 miles west of
Washington — declined to be interviewed. Through a campaign
spokesman, Vogel issued a brief
statement that said attorneyclient privilege prevents her from
discussing her work.
“As an ethics attorney, I hold
myself and my firm to the highest
ethical and moral standards possible and I don’t settle for anything less,” read the statement,
which then sought to shift attention to the law practice of her
Democratic opponent, Justin
Fairfax, a former federal
prosecutor-turned-corporate
lawyer. “There is absolutely no
basis to this story at all.”
Cleta Mitchell, a prominent
GOP elections lawyer with Foley
& Lardner in Washington and a
longtime friend of Vogel’s, said it’s
“outrageous” for anyone to question Vogel’s integrity based on her
legal specialty.
“What she does, what all of us
in this field do, is we advise our
clients how to exercise their First
Amendment rights . . . without
running afoul of the law,” Mitchell
said, noting that conservatives do
not have a monopoly on dark
money.
“The darkest of dark money is
when unions take their members’
dues and spend it on political
activities about which the member actually either doesn’t know
and with which the member may
not agree,” she said. “AFP, Crossroads, any other advocacy group
left or right . . . that’s voluntary,
after-tax dollars. . . . Compare that
with the unions, where Joe
Lunchbucket doesn’t know where
that money’s going to be spent.”
Vogel’s firm has sometimes
been accused by regulators and
election officials of pushing the
limits of election law.
That was the case in California
in 2012, when mysterious donors
poured $15 million into two California proposition battles not
long before Election Day.
Some of the money was to oppose Proposition 30, which eventually passed and raised the California sales tax and income tax.
The rest was to support Proposition 32, which failed and would
have prohibited unions from using payroll deductions for political purposes.
The size of the donation raised
eyebrows, as did the source: outof-state nonprofits that had never
been involved in California politics.
When California regulators finally unraveled it — on the eve of
Election Day, after the state Supreme Court held an unprecedented Sunday session to order
disclosure — the source of the
$15 million turned out to be close
to home: wealthy Californians,
including the Fisher family that
founded the Gap retail chain and
San Francisco investor Charles
Schwab, who had wanted their
names kept under wraps.
Under federal election law, the
names could be kept private. But
California state law requires the
disclosure of donors who sponsor

Justin Fairfax on Oct. 5 in the lieutenant governor race.
ads within 60 days of an election.
Rather than disclose, the money
was shifted from one Koch brothers’ nonprofit to another with
help from Vogel’s firm, said Ann
Ravel, a former Federal Election
Commission member who was
then the state’s chief elections
watchdog as chair of the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).
“It’s like if a restaurant gave
money to all their employees to
make donations to a political issue,” Ravel said. “That’s illegal.
You have to give contributions in
your own name. You cannot essentially launder it.”
Those involved were not
charged with any crime; they
reached a civil settlement with
the FPPC and state attorney general and were ordered to pay a
record fine of $1 million. And the
two California political committees that had received and spent
the money were ordered to pay
the state $15 million.
Vogel did not play any role in
the California case, her campaign
spokesman said.
But legal experts say that as
managing partner of the 13lawyer firm, Vogel is ultimately
responsible for its actions, much
as a chief executive is responsible
for the activities of a corporation.
Vogel’s firm was at the center of
controversy again last fall, right
after Gov. Pat McCrory of North
Carolina came up short in his
reelection bid. HVJT was enlisted
to help McCrory, a Republican,
who was refusing to concede.
Within weeks, the firm filed
protests against 600 voters across
the state. It said some voters were
dead and others had voted in
two states or were felons who had
not completed their sentences.
But the state and local elections
officials eventually threw out the
protests because they were riddled with mistakes — sometimes
confusing legitimate voters with
ineligible people with similar
names, according a study by the
nonpartisan Democracy North
Carolina.
Voters saw their names appear
in newspapers, as suspects in an
alleged felony voter fraud con-
spiracy. Some had to defend
themselves before they were
cleared by local elections boards.
Pressly M. Millen, a North
Carolina attorney for several voters who were falsely accused of
voting illegally, said the protest
was an attempt to delegitimize
the election.
Stephen T. Smith, a prominent
Raleigh, N.C., lawyer, filed a grievance with the state bar against
four lawyers from Vogel’s firm,
saying they had violated rules of
professional conduct. Bar officials
would neither confirm nor deny
the existence of a pending complaint. Smith said he believes it
remains pending.
In her brief statement to The
Washington Post, Vogel said she
was “never aware of any such
complaint made against my firm.”
The bar complaint is not
against the firm per se but against
the four lawyers, who did not
respond to requests for comment.
Vogel was not among the four. But
the firm was recently added as a
defendant in what could become
a class-action lawsuit on behalf of
all voters falsely accused of illegal
voting. A judge will decide whether Vogel’s firm should be part of
the suit.
Chris West, a spokesman for
the Vogel campaign, said she was
unaware that her firm had been
named in a lawsuit.
“Certainly no allegations even
link Senator Vogel to any work in
North Carolina, nor has any document been cited to name Senator
Vogel,” he said in a text message.
“All work done in North Carolina
by other lawyers in the firm was
done under the supervision of
North Carolina lawyers. There is
no basis to this story at all and
none of this has anything to do
with Senator Vogel or the Lt. Governor’s race in Virginia.”
Vogel, 47, is a Shenandoah Valley native and the daughter of a
longtime Republican donor,
Holtzman Oil founder William B.
Holtzman. He has donated
$1.9 million to her campaigns and
those of other Virginia Republi-
cans over the past 10 years, including $611,000 toward Vogel’s
current bid.
Vogel was appointed chief
counsel to the Republican National Committee in 2004, under her
ticketmate Gillespie, who was
then chairman.
After establishing her own
firm, Vogel made “strategic hires”
from the world of politics that
helped fuel its rapid growth,
Mitchell said.
Vogel’s firm includes her husband, Alex Vogel, former chief
counsel to then-Senate Majority
Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.); Tom
Josefiak, a former Federal Election Commission chairman and
general counsel to President
George W. Bush’s 2004 campaign;
and Jason Torchinsky, deputy
general counsel for that campaign.
Along with super PAC American Crossroads, HVJT has represented its tax-exempt affiliate,
Crossroads Grassroots Policy
Strategies, which pioneered the
use of nonprofits as dark-money
political players. Known as
501(c)(4) groups, they are allowed
to keep their contributors secret
as long as they don’t spend most
of their money on politics.
Vogel’s ties to many of the super
PACs and dark-money groups are
a matter of public record, disclosed in Federal Election Commission and IRS filings. In addition to reporting payments to the
firm, the organizations sometimes use HVJT’s Warrenton address as their own and list HVJT
lawyers as their treasurers or other officials.
Years ahead of Vogel’s statewide campaign, one of her partners spoke to a reporter about the
firm’s work, which he described as
helping clients with legitimate
free-speech rights navigate a
shifting legal landscape.
“The rules keep changing,”
Torchinsky told Bloomberg News
in 2012, “which is part of the
reason that people need law firms
to figure out how to speak.”

Assaults on staff spike at largest state psychiatric hospital
BY
M ICHAEL D RESSER
baltimore — On a spring day at
Maryland’s largest state psychiatric hospital, a patient tried to
escape, soiled herself, and attacked a caregiver and a hospital
police officer. She also spat on the
police officer and tried to bite her.
The caregiver had her glasses
broken. She was treated at St.
Agnes Hospital and missed nine
days of work. The police officer
missed 12 days of work.
The attacks were part of a spike
in assaults on employees at
Spring Grove Hospital Center in
Catonsville, as the Hogan administration labors under a court
order to recruit staff for positions
there that were already difficult
to fill.
The May 19 assaults at Spring
Grove were two of 68 at the
hospital from January through
June, according to records obtained by the Baltimore Sun under a Maryland Public Information Act request. That’s almost
twice the 35 attacks reported in
the final half of 2016, and more
than any six-month period going
back to July 2014.
Psychiatric hospitals are workplaces with known risks of violence. Facilities across the country face persistent problems in
attracting qualified people to
care for often-dangerous patients.
The Maryland Department of
Health is reporting significant
improvements in safety at most
of its psychiatric facilities. But
Spring Grove faces particular
challenges.
Patricia Watson, president of
the union local that represents
most non-nurse employees at
Spring Grove, said security has
deteriorated in the three years
she’s worked at the hospital.
“It’s getting worse. It’s like
watching a train wreck,” she said.
“All you can do is pray and try to
help the patients and staff after
[an incident] happens.”
But John Robison, chief of
hospitals at the Maryland Health
Department, called the increase
“a blip in patient assault data.”
It “does not signal an unsafe
place to work,” he said.
For many years, the percentage
of patients committed voluntarily
to Maryland’s state psychiatric
hospitals has been dropping,
while the percentage referred by
the court system — known as
forensic cases — has been increasing. Spring Grove’s population is 80 percent forensic.
The Maryland Health Department, which runs Spring Grove
and other state psychiatric hospitals, finds itself in an increasingly
untenable bind. It doesn’t have
enough beds to treat all the
people referred by the courts as
“not criminally responsible” or
“incompetent to stand trial.”
When the state hospitals legally
responsible for treating them
can’t admit them, sick people
languish in jails that are illequipped to offer more than stopgap treatment.
Last month, Baltimore Circuit
Court Judge Gale Rasin found
acting health secretary Dennis R.
Schrader and five other top department officials in civil contempt of court — saying the
department
had
willfully
dragged its feet in adding capacity.
Rasin, a retired judge who
presides over mental health cases
in the city, ordered the department to fully staff 20 beds recently added at Clifton T. Perkins
Hospital Center in Jessup and
staff 20 beds in an admissions
unit at Spring Grove. She gave
Schrader and his department a
Dec. 31 deadline. The state is
appealing the decision.
If the order is upheld, state
records and interviews with department employees and their
union representatives indicate,
the state faces a daunting task —
even if the Hogan administration
comes up with the resources to
hire that many employees. Qualified people are not lining up to
take such jobs.
April Minniefield, area vice
president of the AFT Healthcare
Maryland union, said Spring
Grove’s nursing shortage has
worsened and conditions have
become more dangerous since
she started work there as a registered nurse four years ago. Meanwhile, she said, the state has not
made the pay and benefits attractive.
“You have to be competitive
with other state facilities,” she
said. “You have to be competitive
with some of the private facilities.”
Spring Grove is one step down
from Perkins in the danger level
of the patients sent there. It
houses 343 patients when at full
capacity. As of July 25, Rasin
found, Spring Grove had 37 patients on its waiting list.
Rasin described Spring Grove
in her court order as “a hospital
that is being deprived of resources and one that cannot meet its
obligations.” She noted its chief
executive’s testimony that the
hospital had lost almost 50 positions over the past three state
budgets and spent $5 million last
year on staff overtime.
Other state hospitals have had
problems with violence and vacancies. The Sun requested records for Spring Grove after hearing complaints from employees
there.
The department keeps a
monthly log of assaults classified
from Level 1 — requiring no
treatment — to Level 5, in which a
staff member died. There were no
deaths in the past three years, but
the number of assaults classified
as Level 3 — requiring medical
intervention — has increased
over that time. There were 28 in
the first six months of this year,
nearly double the 15 in the previous six months.
After inquiries from a reporter,
the Health Department produced
a chart showing annual assault
counts that differed slightly from
the totals the Sun compiled from
the monthly logs.
The department chart showed
81 assaults in fiscal 2015, 78 in
2016 and 98 in 2017. The Sun
counted 77 assaults in fiscal 2015,
77 in 2016 and 103 in 2017. Both
counts totaled 257 assaults over
the three years.
The department did not explain the discrepancies. The Sun
is relying on the logs.
Patrick Moran, president of
AFSCME Council 3, said all psychiatric hospitals have problems,
but Spring Grove’s stand out —
especially compared with improvements at Perkins in recent
years.
Moran said the level of violence at Spring Grove seemed to
have leveled off in recent years.
“All of a sudden it skyrocketed,”
he said.
Moran said the reasons include a more dangerous patient
population, too many patients
and the staffing shortage. He said
Spring Grove, unlike Perkins, was
not designed to be a mostly
forensic facility and is not staffed
that way.
Records show that Spring
Grove has three positions classified as “building security officers.” Perkins, meanwhile, has 80
“security attendants” — the closest counterpart to Spring Grove’s
attendants, according to union
officials.
Watson, who tracks court orders to admit forensic cases, said
employees are aware of the increased danger because they’re
hearing more “codes” — alerts
that a disturbance has broken out
— and have fewer people to
respond. She said she has seen no
signs of improvement since June,
the last month for which the state
provided logs.
The log for June shows there
were 13 assaults on staff by patients that month. It was the
fourth month since January with
at least a dozen assaults. In the
previous two years, the most
reported in a single month was 11
— a number reached only twice.
Since obtaining the records
through fiscal 2017 in September,
the Sun has pressed the state to
supply the logs for subsequent
months. The department declined to do so in time for this
article but reported that there
were 24 cases between July 1 and
Oct. 6 in which staff members
were “struck by patient or third
party.” If the numbers are comparable, that means assaults have
slowed since the first six months
of 2017 but still are on a pace to
exceed 100 for the year.
The records portray a workplace in which staff members are
constantly at risk. On June 5, a
licensed practical nurse was
punched in the eye while helping
to dress a patient and required
medical care. The staff member
missed four days of work. On
June 19, there were three assaults
on nurses in a single day.
That morning an LPN had her
hair pulled and was punched in
the head. That afternoon, two
registered nurses were attacked
in what appears to have been a
single incident. The patient
slammed a cart into one nurse’s
ankle and kicked the other nurse
in an ankle as well.
Christopher
Garrett,
the
Health
Department’s
chief
spokesman, said patients assault
staff at many psychiatric hospitals, public and private.
“Assaults happen,” he said. “Patient-related assaults happen at
facilities.”

RICHARD WILBUR, 96
U.S. poet laureate won the Pulitzer Prize twice
BY
H ARRISON S MITH
Richard Wilbur, an American
poet and translator whose precise, rhythmic verse — employing
classical forms in an era when
experimental works and freeflowing confessionals reigned supreme — earned him two Pulitzer
Prizes and a reputation as one of
the greatest poets of the 20th
century, died Oct. 14 at a nursing
home in Belmont, Mass. He was
96.
The cause was not immediately
known, said a son, Chris Wilbur.
Mr. Wilbur, a former Army
infantryman who devoted himself to poetry after returning from
World War II, was among the
most prolific poets of his generation. A devotee of classical rhyme
and meter, his work retained a
sense of orderly elegance through
the rise of confessional poets
such as Robert Lowell and Sylvia
Plath, and in contrast to the often
esoteric work of avant-garde writers like John Ashbery, who died
last month at age 90.
“If Ashbery invented a whole
new kind of poetry,” said Robert
Casper, head of the Library of
Congress’s Poetry and Literature
Center, “Richard Wilbur reminded us of the enduring power of
tradition: that poems about the
natural world and about love,
written in classical, traditional
rhyme and meter, would continue to matter going forward into
the future.”
In an email, the Irish poet Paul
Muldoon described Mr. Wilbur as
“the single greatest technician in
American poetry of the last 70
years,” adding: “It was a technique perfectly at the service of
tenderness and terror.”
Mr. Wilbur published his first
book, “The Beautiful Changes
and Other Poems,” in 1947, rendering his war experiences in a
formal style that some critics
derided as overly ornate and borderline baroque.
Within a decade, however, he
had refined his voice, stripping
away some of its poetic excesses.
He won his first Pulitzer Prize in
1957 for “Things of This World,”
which drew its title from one of
Mr. Wilbur’s most widely anthologized poems.
The poem, “Love Calls Us to the
Things of This World,” began with
a heavenly vision inspired in part
by the “Confessions” of St. Augustine:
The eyes open to a cry of pulleys,
And spirited from sleep, the
astounded soul
Hangs for a moment bodiless
and simple
As false dawn.
Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash
with angels.
It was one of many poems that
demonstrated Mr. Wilbur’s deeprooted belief that the universe
was, as he put it in an interview
with the Paris Review, “full of
glorious energy . . . and that the
ultimate character of things is
comely and good.”
“My feeling,” he continued, “is
that when you discover order and
goodness in the world, it is not
something you are imposing — it
is something that is likely really
to be there, whatever crumminess and evil and disorder there
may also be. I don’t take disorder
or meaninglessness to be the
basic character of things.”
In a sign of Mr. Wilbur’s stature
in American poetry, he was appointed the second U.S. poet laureate, following Robert Penn
Warren, in 1987. (The Library of
Congress had previously named
consultants in poetry.) Two years
later, he received his second Pulitzer Prize, for “New and Collected
Poems.”
His work extended well beyond that of sonnets and sapphics, to include acclaimed translations of the French playwrights
Molière and Racine and the poets
Baudelaire and Brodsky. He contributed lyrics to Leonard Bern-
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Richard Wilbur served as the
second U.S. poet laureate.
“My feeling is that when
you discover order and
goodness in the world,
it is not something you
are imposing — it is
something that is likely
really to be there,
whatever crumminess
and evil and disorder
there may also be.”
Richard Wilbur, in a 1977 interview
with the Paris Review
stein’s 1956 operetta “Candide,”
and — inspired by the births of
his four children — even dabbled
in children’s books, writing
whimsical verses (“What is the
opposite of soup? / It’s nuts”) and
books of pun-filled wordplay, including “Opposites,” a 1973 picture book that he illustrated himself.
“Throughout his career Wilbur
has shown, within the compass of
his classicism, enviable variety,”
The Washington Post book critic
Michael Dirda wrote in 2004,
reviewing a new collection of Mr.
Wilbur’s poetry.
“His poems describe fountains
and firetrucks, grasshoppers and
toads, European cities and country pleasures. All of them are easy
to read, while being suffused with
an astonishing verbal music and
a compacted thoughtfulness that
invite sustained reflection. Besides, they are so beautiful one
simply wants to go back to them
again and again.”
Richard Purdy Wilbur was
born in New York on March 1,
1921, to a literary family that
included a grandfather and greatgrandfather who worked as editors. His father was a portrait
artist.
Known to his friends as Dick,
he graduated from high school in
Montclair, N.J., and received a
bachelor’s degree at Amherst College in 1942, before enlisting as a
cryptographer in the Army. He
served in Africa, southern France
and Italy during World War II, a
period that he said led him to
“versify in earnest.”
“One does not use poetry for its
major purposes, as a means to
organize oneself and the world,
until one’s world somehow gets
out of hand,” he told the biographical source Twentieth- Century Authors.
After graduating from Harvard
University with a master’s degree
in 1947, Mr. Wilbur worked for
many years as an English professor, including a two-decade stint
at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. In 1961, he was named
chancellor of the Academy of
American Poets, a position he
held for more than 30 years.
His wife of 64 years, the former
Charlotte Ward, died in 2007.
Survivors include four children,
Ellen Wilbur of Cambridge,
Mass., Chris Wilbur of Arlington,
Mass., Nathan Wilbur of Newburyport, Mass., and Aaron Wilbur of Wakefield, Mass.; three
grandchildren; and two greatgrandchildren.
His books were, in the eyes of
some critics, too orderly — well
balanced in each line, showing
the hand of a true literary craftsman, yet displaying little in the
way of heart and emotion. Mr.
Wilbur, literary critic Randall Jarrell wrote in an oft-cited review of
his second collection, “Ceremony
and Other Poems” (1950), “never
goes too far, but he never goes far
enough.”
In part, the criticism seemed a
result of Mr. Wilbur’s writing in
an explosive literary era, with one
set of poets becoming increasingly political during the antiwar
movement of the 1960s, and another set embracing obscurity in
the experimental movement
known as postmodernism.
Mr. Wilbur’s works earned
near-unanimous praise in recent
years, when he published collections such as “Mayflies” (2000)
and “Anterooms” (2010), both of
which featured new poems alongside translations.
By then, he had six decades’
experience in what he described
as a slow and even arduous act, a
process of thinking on the page in
which a poem sometimes took
years to coalesce.
“I think inside my lines,” he
wrote in one 1966 essay describing his craft, “and the thought
must get where it can amongst
the moods and sounds and gravitating particulars which are appearing there.”
cause was congestive heart failure, said his daughter, Lynn
Thorp.
Mr. Thorp was born in Sewickley, Pa., and grew up in Washington.
He served in the Army during
World War II and received two
awards of the Purple Heart, his
family said.
He did sales work for 10 companies, including Bell Aircraft,
before joining Carroll Publishing
in 1971.
He was a past chairman of the
Palisades Citizens Association’s
airport noise committee.

Charlie was born June 25, 1931, in New York,
New York, the son of the late Salvator A.
Fama and Helen Fama (Mihalik) of New York
City. He was predeceased by his sister Kitty
Valdez of New York City and is survived by
his sister Louise Mahoney, of St. Petersburg,
FL. He was a graduate of Cardinal Hayes
High School in New York City. He received
his undergraduate degree from Manhattan
College and his Master’s Degree in Electrical
Engineering from New York University.
Charlie spent his professional career in the
electrical engineering and telecommunications
fields with Sperry, MELPAR Incorporated, Computer Sciences Corporation and MITRE Corporation.
Charlie’s favorite pastimes were fishing, woodworking and rooting for his favorite teams,
the Washington Redskins and the New York
Yankees. His greatest joy was always spending
time in the company of his family. The light of
his smile and the twinkle of his blue eyes when
surrounded by his loved ones told them all how
much they were treasured. His generous soul
and selflessness made him a valued mentor
and friend. Charlie’s corny jokes and upbeat
spirit will be missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may
be sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. A family celebration of Charlie’s life will
be held at Ashby Ponds, Ashburn, Virginia, at a
future date.

and wanted to pay back to his community

of six children. With limited economic opportunities in Greece, George immigrated to
Montreal, Canada in 1954 right after high

tireless work ethic and ambition for success
went into the restaurant business in Canada.
In 1963 George returned briefly to Sparta
where he met his wife Eleni, (Helen), and
returned to Canada. Due to the extremely
harsh Canadian winters, George, Stavros and
his brother in law Thanasi moved with their
families to Northern Virginia in 1969. With his
new found business experience he open his
first restaurant in Arlington, Virginia and soon
after opened another restaurant he named
Zachary's of McLean in 1975.
1975 was a particularly significant year in
the history of McLean as it was the year
the McLean Community Center was opened
after decades of effort. 1975 was also the
year George became an American citizen
which was one of the proudest moments
of his life. George and his wife Helen felt
a strong compelling obligation to give back
to their community after they found success
with their restaurants. Together they
launched the highly successful Greek Nights
Festival in conjunction with the McLean
Spring Day Festival consisting of food, music,
and dance, with all the proceeds going to the
local community.
George was a very rare individual, a man
who felt he owed a debt to his community

Trump’s
anti-media
threats do
take a toll
As a presidential
candidate, Donald
Trump vowed to
change the libel
laws to make it
easier to win big
Margaret
lawsuits against
Sullivan
news
organizations. It
never happened.
After the election, he
pressured the FBI director to
consider sending reporters to jail
for publishing classified
information. That was another
non-starter.
And just last week, he
suggested that a TV network have
its broadcast license revoked
because he objected to a news
report. That isn’t possible under
FCC rules; the agency licenses
individual stations, not networks.
Trump keeps ranting about the
dishonest news media. And
reporters and editors keep doing
their jobs, undaunted.
So there’s no problem and First
Amendment champions should
just calm down, right?
Stop overreacting to Trump’s
tweet-threats, counseled Jack
Shafer of Politico last week,
suggesting that, while not
ignoring them, “we discount
their value in the political
marketplace down to the junk
level.”
As many have noted, Trump is
actually more accessible than his
predecessor — often answering
reporters’ questions in informal
settings, calling them on the
phone and giving plenty of
interviews (though mostly to his
friends at Fox News).
What’s more, his Twitter feed
means that we have a real-time
understanding of the president’s

Nashville is littered with misogynistic bros. College campuses are roiled by sexual assaults.
Hollywood was just rocked by a
scandal of serial male brutality.
America is tearing itself apart
along racialized lines of tribal
politics.
What do Tim McGraw and
Faith Hill have to say about all
this?
A lot, it turns out.
At Capital One Arena on Friday night, on their joint
Soul2Soul tour to promote a
forthcoming album of duets, the
royal country couple subtly but
unmistakably affirmed universal values of decency and inclusiveness. As McGraw sang
“Humble and Kind,” a tender
ballad about simple virtues, a
video montage of multiracial
faces unspooled on the giant
screen behind him.
“Hope they’re listening down
the street,” McGraw said in the
direction of you-know-who.
After he and Hill, parents of
three
daughters,
delivered
“Speak to a Girl,” a frank piece of
advice on how to be a 21st-century gentleman, McGraw exhorted
the young men in the audience
to “pay attention to the lyrics of
that song.” And to the young
women: “Expect it every single
time.”
Such PSAs added a welcome
overlay of seriousness to a show
that was slickly produced, tightly choreographed and technologically busy with hydraulic
lifts, movable translucent scrims
and eye-popping digital scenic
displays. And the relational sturdiness of McGraw and Hill —

Martha Stewart
and Snoop
Dogg cook up
comedy rapport
Snoop Dogg and
Martha Stewart are
an odd but
simpatico couple in
“Martha and
Snoop’s Potluck
Dinner Party,” a
cooking-showmeets-comedy hit.

ere are some of the things Martha
Stewart has done on her new show with
Snoop Dogg: She has worn a blingedout cheese grater on a chain around her neck.
She has drunk out of what can only be described as a pimp cup. She has taste-tested a
stoner recipe for a pizza omelet. She has
name-dropped Escoffier. She didn’t flinch
when Rick Ross said to her audience, “I wanna
make some noise for Martha because baby got
back.”
When did Martha Stewart go from being
America’s most earnest homemaker, ready at a
moment’s notice to spray-paint silk flowers
and shape them into elaborate wreaths, to
being America’s coolest grandma, who makes
weed jokes and hangs out with Wiz Khalifa?
After she went to prison, of course, but not
right after. The cultivation of New Martha, of
Hip-Hop Martha, of Martha the Queen of Dank
Memes, took time. And it has culminated in
“Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” her
cooking-show-meets-stoner-buddy-comedy
that enters its second season Monday on VH1.
“I’m a very strait-laced person,” Martha told
The Washington Post. “I don’t smoke, I hardly
drink. It’s kind of an odd combination right
from the get-go.”
Respectfully: Is Martha all that strait-laced
anymore?
It’s the perception that she is strait-laced
that makes it funny just hearing her say the
names of her guests, often hip-hop artists: “We
had Lil Yachty. Do you know him?” This is,
after all, the same woman who wrote an
extensive blog post about bathing her donkeys: Billie, Rufus and Clive. It’s the same
woman who, in a roast of Justin Bieber, deliv-
ered a withering monologue calling comedian
Natasha Leggero “the dirtiest used-up ho I
have ever seen,” and gave Bieber tips for when
he “inevitably” goes to prison. If you ever slept
on a set of Martha Stewart floral print sheets,
you’d be surprised to hear her joke about them,
which was (1) unprintable, and (2) directed
toward the rapper Ludacris.
Her show with Snoop is a very particular
cultural exchange between two people of
seemingly disparate backgrounds, which is a
thing America could use more of these days,
frankly. Martha, 76, tries on a grill, shotguns a
beer and glugs out of a 40-ounce bottle of malt
liquor this season. Snoop, 45, meanwhile, has
learned about lobster thermidor and croquembouche.
“She’s taught me how to . . . have better food
etiquette, how to be more professional in the

At 81, Diane Rehm is
again a blushing bride

Washington
National Cathedral
on their wedding
day Saturday. The
two met 30 years
earlier at a friend’s
wedding and
reconnected at one
of Rehm’s book
readings last year.
“Do I want to spend
the rest of my life
alone?” Rehm
recalled asking
herself. “When I met
John, I thought,
‘Maybe not.’ ”
TONY POWELL
R OXANNE R OBERTS
Most people think this is a love
story, but it’s really a story about
hope.
Diane Rehm and John Hagedorn were married Saturday at
Washington National Cathedral
in front of their families and 250
friends. The bride, 81, walked
down the aisle with her son and
daughter. The groom, 78, waited
for her with his two sons.
They were, said the Rev. Canon
Jerry Anderson, the oldest couple
he had married in his 49 years in
the clergy. “They say that marriage is actually the triumph of
hope over experience,” he told the
congregation. “It’s obvious God is
not finished with the two of you.”
Marriage is not something to
be entered lightly, especially
when you’re mature enough to
know exactly what that really
means. So the ceremony was
traditional, serious and formal:
The bride and groom vowed to
love, comfort and honor but not
obey. They exchanged rings and a
chaste kiss, and then everybody
applauded after they were pronounced husband and wife. And
yes, they were beaming.
“This is something I never
thought would happen to me,”
Rehm wrote on her blog a few
days before the wedding. “I truly
believed I would spend the rest of
my life alone, and find a way to
enjoy it.”
After 54 years of marriage to
the late John Rehm, the beloved
public radio host had planned a
solo life around travel, writing
and friends. Then fate intervened
in the form of Hagedorn, a retired
Lutheran minister and widower.
The two met 30 years earlier at
the wedding of a friend they had
in common and reconnected at a
book reading of Rehm’s “On My
Own” last year. On their third
date, he told her he loved her.
“That’s ridiculous,” she answered. “How can you possibly
know that?”
‘That’s what I feel,” he said.
But Hagedorn’s honesty and
optimism cracked open her heart
to him. “Do I want to spend the

Actors Taylor Kitsch and
Josh Brolin at the Redskins’
game against the San Francisco
49ers on Sunday afternoon?
Kitsch is known for his role
on the TV series “Friday Night
Lights,” so it wasn’t a shock to
see him on the gridiron — but at
the game at FedEx Field, he was
wearing a home-team
burgundy-and-gold jersey, not
the Dillon Panthers’ blue.
Brolin went dressier in a
sport coat and button-down.
The pair are in town to
promote their new firefighterdrama movie, “Only the Brave,”
and their on-field moves were
perfectly on-message: They
honored local first responders.
Brolin’s visit to Washington
apparently included a bit of
sightseeing, as well. Earlier in
the day, the “No Country for Old
Men” star posted a pic to
Instagram of himself taken in a
mirror at the White House,
cheekily captioning it “ ‘No

JABIN BOTSFORD/THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump and first lady Melania Trump walk across the White House’s South Lawn on Friday.
Trumps don’t stray far for a night out
Another weekend, another
presidential night out on the
town — President Trump and
his family ventured outside the
confines of the White House on
Saturday night, and their exotic
destination was . . . the
steakhouse in the hotel just
down the street that bears their
name.
The first couple (she in a black
sleeveless dress and heels; he in
his usual suit and tie), along with
their son, Barron, apparently
had another meal at BLT Steak,
the establishment located in
Trump International Hotel, per
the media pool report.
Nearly eight months after
moving to Washington, it’s the
only establishment the family
has frequented. That’s most
unlike the Obamas, who were
known for exploring the city’s
dining scene with gusto. It’s far
more akin to famously
homebody-ish President George
W. Bush, but at least he would
occasionally pop out to a local
Tex-Mex joint for an enchilada.
And it’s not as if there aren’t
plenty of options, even for a
reportedly unadventurous diner.
We hear it’s harder these days to
get random information to the
president, but perhaps somebody
could slip our colleague Tom
Sietsema’s new dining guide into
Trump’s daily pack of clips?

Cause: Increasing funding
and raising awareness for Stage 4
breast cancer — also known as
metastatic breast cancer, a form
that has spread from the breast to
other parts of the body. “The
majority of attention and money
goes to pink-ribbon causes, which
do not, by and large, search for a
cure to metastatic breast cancer,
which is the only kind of cancer
that kills you,” Sorvino said. “And
it kills 40,000 women a year.”
About 2 to 7 percent of the federal
cancer budget is allocated to
metastatic breast cancer
research, according to Sorvino.
Scene: Stage 4 breast cancer
patients (men and women alike)
and supporters marched down
the Mall on Friday, National
Metastatic Breast Cancer
Awareness Day, before staging a
“die-in” on Capitol Hill. Sorvino
spoke in honor of her best friend,
Champagne Joy, founder of
#Cancerland, which aims to —
according to the nonprofit
group’s website — “change the
conversation about breast
cancer.” Joy died of the disease in
the spring. The actress spoke

How Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart became comedy’s odd couple McGraw,
Hill have
a timely
message
appeared on “$100,000 Pyramid,”
Martha grilled Snoop on the intricacies of interior design: wainscoting, sconces, credenzas. He
answered every question correctly.
At one point a meme went
around, a picture of Snoop and
Martha from the holiday brownie
episode of her show, clad in a
three-piece suit and a holiday
sweater, respectively. The caption
reads: “Be mindful of stereotypes!
Only one of them is a convicted
felon.”
Except it’s not true: Snoop, too,
is a felon, having been convicted
of drug possession and possession
for sale in 1990.
But it’s the spirit behind that
meme that is the force of the
show: Anyone can find common
ground over a good meal, even
two people who seem so different.
MARTHA FROM C1
kitchen,” Snoop said. “I showed
her a few things, the ghetto way of
doing things,” like his method for
making bacon.
“I’ve learned a lot about music
from Snoop and our guests,” Martha said. “He’s extremely knowledgeable, he’s also very amusing.
He’s really laid back,” she said,
quoting one of his songs. She
genuinely likes rap: “Ever since I
saw ‘8 Mile.’ It started with
Eminem . . . I like that kind of
poetry.” And Rick Ross: “We’re
email pals.”
S
noop is becoming Martha,
and Martha is becoming
Snoop, and it’s been happening for years, before our very eyes.
He first appeared on her show in
2008, putting cognac in his
mashed potatoes, teaching her
the phrase “fo shizzle.” A year
later, they made brownies with
green sprinkles and a wink and a
nod, because those green sprinkles stood for an altogether different green substance. Then a Reddit Q&A in which Martha said
Snoop was a person she would
like to get to know better, and then
the Bieber roast. After that, SallyAnn Salsano, who also produced
“The Jersey Shore,” realized that
they would be the perfect odd
couple for a cooking show.
“These guys are genuinely
friends, and that’s why I think it
works so well on screen,” Salsano
said. “Their relationship is real.”
Some of the show’s best comedy
comes from how Snoop and Martha play off each other when she
says something contrary to type
or he eats something delicious.
Snoop will look at her and say,
“Martha,” amused and awed.
There is recipe instruction, but it’s
not really about that. The format
is basically: Snoop and Martha
each make dishes according to a
(usually stoner-friendly) theme,
like tacos or grilled cheese, and
invite celebrity guests over to
hang out. This season will feature
Laverne Cox, RuPaul, T-Pain, Ty
Dolla $ign and P. Diddy, among
others.
Snoop is, unsurprisingly, high
for every episode.
“He comes onto the set pretty
high, and leaves pretty high,” said
Martha, laughing, but he’s “not
incompetent or incoherent at all.
That’s the way he lives.”
“Sometimes I may smoke one
blunt, sometimes I may smoke
100 blunts,” Snoop said. “It de-
noop is writing his own
cookbook, one more thing
he’ll have in common with
Martha. It will feature recipes
from the show.
“People were inquiring about
those dishes, and how can we do
it. I was like, you know, [expletive]
it, I’m gonna do a cookbook.”
It’s going to be refined: “I didn’t
put no baloney sandwiches in
there. That might be in my second
book. That might come with the
hood recipes in there too,” he said.
“I wanted . . . [people] to know
that it was good and coming from
a cooking perspective, and not
just me just doing it to be doing it.”
And it won’t be about cooking
with cannabis.
“I’m gonna be on cannabis
while I’m cooking, but ain’t no
need to put it in the food.”
Martha says she doesn’t consume cannabis, though she says
she has gotten a contact high from
being around Snoop. He has gifted her with marijuana seeds, and
she hasn’t yet planted them, but is
considering doing so at her Maine
household (“I need to find out if I
need a license.”).
Even though it would seem the
ultimate culmination of both personal brands, Snoop and Martha
have no plans to launch the most
logical merchandising spinoff of
their show: a line of gourmet
cannabis edibles.
New Martha makes weed jokes.
Old Martha wants to grow something else.
“I’d rather do a line of my own
hydrangeas or my own tulip
bulbs,” she said.
they are no stranger to tabloid
rumors about impending divorce — was itself a kind of
defiant celebration.
The couple emerged from
beneath the stage for a buoyant
rendition of the Aretha Franklin-George Michael R&B hit “I
Knew You Were Waiting (For
Me).” McGraw happily copped
to the relative ordinariness of
his voice compared with hers.
“At least you’re good-lookin’ ”
was Hill’s assessment of her
husband’s singing prowess,
McGraw self-deprecatingly reported.
Truth be told, the lady can
bring it. Old favorites like
“Breathe” and “This Kiss,” for
instance, were bravura showcases for a voice that at Hill’s 50
years, sounds as though it
hasn’t aged a bit. For his part,
McGraw’s hits (“Live Like You
Were Dying,” “Where the Green
Grass Grows,” “Shotgun Rider”
among them) had a lot of uplifting help from the nearly soldout arena.
With not one but two catalogues of hits to rely on, McGraw
and Hill could have let the music
speak for itself, but they unabashedly revel in theater. In
contradistinction to the endearing at-home photos of their kids,
McGraw and Hill featured, in
video, images that looked like
outtakes from a perfume ad. On a
fog-laden set for the intimate
ballad “I Need You,” with the
couple seated nose to nose on
silver chairs, a pair of glowing,
interlocking triangles slowly descended on them. One worried
they were about to be banished
into the Phantom Zone of DC
Comics fame.
There were moments of
seemingly premeditated cuteness, too, such as a kiss on the
mouth that prompted Hill to
ask McGraw to check for lipstick on his teeth.
Get a room, you say?
For two taut hours, McGraw
and Hill let 16,000 people into
theirs.

And then he has some cocktails, because many episodes kick
off with Martha demonstrating a
drink recipe.
“These guys are
genuinely friends, and
that’s why I think it
works so well on screen.”

“Every episode I was drunk.
Every one,” Snoop said. “The lines
become that much more easier,
the flow becomes natural. It’s
more relaxing. You’re not doing a
job, you’re just having fun.”
Martha is having fun, too. She
seems cannily aware of her role as
the comedic straight man, the
person who can send Jamie Foxx
into peals of laughter by sucking
on a helium balloon, as she does
during Season 2’s “Birthday Party” episode, while misquoting Migos’s “Bad and Boujee”: “Rain
drop. Drop top. Smoking on kush
in hot box.”
Martha was once so earnest
that her daughter, Alexis, hosted a
show poking loving fun at her
mother. Ana Gasteyer’s “Saturday
Night Live” impressions of her
were of a woman with a quiet rage
within. People didn’t know Martha was funny — much less that
she could go toe-to-toe with some
of the filthiest comedians. It’s
been in her all along, said Kim
Miller-Olko, senior vice president
of television and video for Sequential Brands Group, one of the
show’s producers.
“It’s not like she’s a truck driver,” but the Bieber roast “was who
she is when you’re in the car with
her. That sense of humor is very
much her,” she said.
M
artha wouldn’t describe
her sense of humor as
dirty.
“My
business
partners
wouldn’t like that description of
me. I like humor, I like all kinds of
humor. I don’t watch horror movies, though, and I don’t watch
porn. I don’t watch any bad stuff.”
(If you’re surprised to hear
prim, proper Martha Stewart
even use the word “porn” in an
interview, know this: Martha
knows what sexting is, and she’s
done it, she told Andy Cohen).
It’s all so funny that a cynical
person might wonder if this is a
calculated effort to expand her
brand among millennials. After
she published an essay about how
much she loves drones, the Daily
Dot wrote that Martha was “trolling the Internet into oblivion.”
“The Internet’s oblivion or my
oblivion?” asked Martha, when I
read that line to her. “I can’t imagine what that means.
“Trolling means you’re fishing,
it means you’re dragging a line . . .
so it doesn’t really make any
sense, that statement, does it?
Does it to you?”
I tried to explain that the Internet has a different definition of
trolling, and that in this context,
the word meant being cheekily
provocative. And I wondered:
Was Martha trolling me?
“No, I’m doing a fun show,” she
said. “We’re having interesting
guests, we’re doing all sorts of
great, I would say funny, things.
We’re trying to give people a little
bit of information and a lot of
enjoyment.”
For all their odd couple dynamic, Martha and Snoop aren’t so
different. They’re both lifestyle

Murder mystery and satire of rural life by a master of the genre
BY
P ATRICK A NDERSON
Among the leading crime novelists, John Sandford is notable
for his sense of humor. You find it
in his novels — particularly his
Virgil Flowers series — and, if
you happen to meet him, in
casual conversation. When I met
Sandford at the National Book
Festival a decade ago, he professed uncertainty about the wife
he had bestowed upon Lucas
Davenport, the star of his hugely
popular “Prey” series. The detective had run through numerous
women in the early novels, Sandford said, and fearful that his
promiscuity might offend some
readers, he married off his hero
to the beautiful and brilliant
doctor Weather Karkinnen.
However, Sandford continued,
he’d since come to fear that
marriage might be too boring a
state for his dashing hero, and he
was considering the possibility
of killing off Karkinnen. If so, he
added, she would be granted a
swift and merciful end. “Maybe a
plane crash,” he mused. In fact,
Karkinnen is still with us, but
sometimes imperiled, and her
uncertain future reflects her creator’s amused, often sardonic
view of human nature.
I thought the early Davenport
novels suffered from too many
diversions — the detective’s favorite jokes, his favorite rock
songs — but
Sandford and
his
readers
clearly enjoyed
them. Then, 10
years
ago,
Sandford started his second,
avowedly humorous series

“Deep Freeze”
is the 10th novel in the Flowers series, and as
always, Sandford devises a bizarre plot for his hero to untangle.
Set in the winter chill of the
northern Minnesota town of
Trippton, the novel is both a
murder mystery and a satire of
small-town life. In a previous
novel, Flowers went to Trippton
in search of some missing dogs
and ended up exposing “a murderous conspiracy run by the
local school board.”
In “Deep Freeze” we meet a
local dummy known as “Bug
Boy” because he owns the local
pest-control business. Bug Boy,
recently divorced, has a chance
to visit a high school classmate,
the richest, if not the nicest,
woman in town, who is also
divorced. He has a fantasy of
wooing her, so he brings along a
bottle of champagne. Alas, they
argue and she slaps him, whereupon he tries to slap her back,
but forgets the bottle in his hand.
It bangs into her head and she
falls dead on her living-room
floor, whereupon he flees, consoling himself that he’s not a
murderer, just accident-prone.
Launching his investigation,
Flowers questions people who
knew the dead woman. He soon
discovers that the town’s leading
citizens are busily hopping in
and out of bed with one another.
Moreover, some of its most respectable women are deep into
B&D (bondage and discipline)
provided by lower-class hunks.
One woman tells Flowers, “Keeping two men happy is the only
way I can stay happy myself.”
“This place . . . ” Flowers sighs.
“Is exactly like every other
place,” she says.
Another crime emerges. A dozen local women are marketing
sexed-up Barbie dolls. These Xrated Barbies, called Barbie-Os,
are selling by the thousands.
Barbie’s corporate masters have
sent a private detective to stop
this outrage, but no one in Trippton will talk to her because
Barbie-O sales have become the
town’s major source of income.
When Flowers tries to investigate, four members of the Barbie
brigade beat him senseless outside a bar.
Sandford doesn’t always bother to make his humor plot-related. For no urgent reason, he has
someone tell the venerable old
joke, not printable here, about
why Mickey Mouse wants to
divorce Minnie. He even tosses in
a bit of red-state bumper-sticker
humor: “Honk If You’ve Never
Seen a Gun Fired From a Vehicle.”
Sandford’s Davenport thrillers
are excellent and mostly serious.
Flowers’s adventures are a riot,
in part because of the author’s
belief — which he shared with
me — that most criminals are
remarkably stupid.
Amazingly, this is the 11th
consecutive year that Sandford
has published both a Davenport
novel and a Flowers novel. This
punishing, two-a-year pace arises at least in part from idealism.
Sandford, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter before he turned to
fiction, earns millions of dollars
from his two best-selling series
and has for years donated substantial amounts to support the
homeless, animal rights and other causes. And that’s no joke.

OPERA REVIEW
‘Shining Brow’: An architect’s intensity, if not his innovativeness
BY
A NNE M IDGETTE
“To hell with convention!”
Frank Lloyd Wright spits out in a
scene from “Shining Brow,” an
opera about his early life. It’s a
disingenuous moment. Yes,
Wright, the visionary architect,
left his wife for a client’s wife,
with whom he lived openly until
she and her two children were
murdered in one of his signature
houses, Taliesin — to hell with
convention, indeed. But Wright’s
line (in a libretto by the Irish poet
Paul Muldoon) is delivered in the
context of an opera that cleaves
to convention, and although that
convention is a good one —
involving big tunes and wonderful dense vocal ensembles from
the composer, Daron Hagen — it
is a jolting reminder that this
piece, for all of its strong music
and strong words, is not at all the
kind of cutting-edge work that
Wright himself was known for.
“Shining Brow” is contemporary — it is being presented in
Washington this week by UrbanArias, a company that specializes in short chamber operas
of recent decades — but it is not
new. The opera’s original version
had its premiere in 1993, in
Wisconsin, at a time when Hagen
and his team (including the director Stephen Wadsworth) had
such momentum that the piece
attracted considerable attention.
It has been performed several
times since, in various versions;
the one UrbanArias is presenting
strips away the choruses, auxiliary characters and full orchestra,
turning it into a work for a
seven-piece chamber orchestra
and five principal singers that
lasts a little more than an hour.
That the abridgment works
shows the opera’s solidity (you
could do this with “Aida” too).
That the opera has been around,
and performed, for more than
20 years gives it a certain assurance, and “Shining Brow” is pretty assured to begin with. Saturday’s opening-night cast made
much of Hagen’s singable melodies, trusting the score enough to
present it as music rather than,
as so often happens especially
with new work, a problem to
be tackled.
The score may be a
musical response to the
jewel-like tones and
intricate patterns in
Wright’s signature
windows and textiles.
If there is a problem, it’s that
much of the hour is pitched at the
same heightened emotional temperature, in a work that deals
with the interleaving of emotional themes across several different
relationships — the abandon-
ment of Louis Sullivan, Wright’s
mentor (the tenor Robert Baker),
and of Catherine, his wife (the
outstanding mezzo-soprano Rebecca Ringle, her voice dark and
warm and a tangible anchor in
the ensembles); the betrayal of
Edwin Cheney, Wright’s client,
whose wife leaves him (the bass
Ben Wager, also excellent both
dramatically and vocally). As the
loyal but disillusioned lover, Mamah Cheney, Miriam Khalil had
the most stereotyped role (the
genius’s helpmeet), and the most
challenging, climax-studded vocal line. As Wright, the fine
baritone Sidney Outlaw sounded
a little vocally pale at times but
worked his way into a tricky role.
The character is supposed to be a
little distanced, a little awkward,
breaking through to feelings only
at moments, and ending the
whole thing with an anguished
monologue that didn’t feel entirely credible (which was not the
singer’s fault).
The whole thing was, though, a
generally intense and pleasurable musical experience in the
hands of UrbanArias founder
and conductor Robert Wood. The
score, now steeped in Strauss’s
“Der Rosenkavalier,” an opera
Wright and Cheney saw on a trip
to Berlin, offers music more
spare and angular, a step removed from Strauss’s lushness.
Indeed, the score may be something of a musical response to the
jewel-like tones and intricate patterns in Wright’s signature windows and textiles (four panels of
which form the bulk of director
Grant Preisser’s set), which also
put their own spin on traditional
European elegance. The resulting opera looks back, not forward
— and thus, while telling Wright’s
story, doesn’t achieve Wright’s
pathbreaking status. It remains,
however, very effective opera.

THEATER REVIEW
Linden is
just right
for Arena’s
‘The Price’
BY
NELSON PRESSLEY
The deceptions between
American fathers and sons were
an Arthur Miller specialty — see
“Death of a Salesman” now at
Ford’s Theatre if you need reminding — and two middle-aged
brothers hash it out over dad
and the Depression in Miller’s
1968 “The Price.” The ghost in
the room is the old man, long
gone but still haunting the boys
as they blame each other for
their miseries and point angrily
at their father’s empty easy
chair.
That blame game grows long
and soggy in the hyperemotional
second act of Arena Stage’s new
production, but director Seema
Sueko’s show has several enjoyable weapons to keep you involved in Miller’s big, engrossing
play. The star slot belongs to Hal
Linden as Gregory Solomon, the
89-year-old used-furniture dealer who arrives to buy everything
stockpiled in the family attic,
and Linden’s got the impish fizz
to bring this amusing man to
life.
Miller knew salesmen, and
Solomon’s a beauty: he charms,
he jokes and he philosophizes as
he nibbles a hard-boiled egg
from his briefcase. Solomon
brings laughter and light to a
drama that’s full of heavy showdowns, and while Linden still
seemed to be settling in occasionally as of Thursday’s opening, mostly the role fits him like
a soft leather glove. Of course
the guy who played Barney Miller in one of TV’s smarter sitcoms knows how to drop dry
punchlines into the prevailing
inanity.
The 86-year-old Linden also
knows how to gently sound
notes of time and loss, which
elsewhere in this performance
bang like gongs. “The Price” is, of
course, a reckoning: It’s about
Victor Franz, a highly moral
middle-class cop whose brother,
Walter — a wealthy doctor —
seems to have waltzed away with
the siblings’ better opportunities. Victor’s wife, Esther, is sick
of his noble self-sacrifice. She
sees Walter’s comfort and wants
it.
The furniture, splendidly realized in the dozens of vintage
pieces of Wilson Chin’s set, is the
bitter past and the hopeful future: There’s money to be made
from it. But first the brothers
have to settle old scores. They
haven’t spoken in years.
Maboud Ebrahimzadeh is another of Sueko’s assets; his
earthy, blunt style feels exactly
right as Victor. Ebrahimzadeh
channels the character’s intelligence and good-guy ethics lightly, which is pivotal if you’re going
to keep Miller’s play from feeling
like a righteous harangue.
The show plows right into
that trap in the second act. The
play, artfully written as a single
long conversation in that attic,
shrewdly reverses several times
and keeps you guessing about
where the real culpability lies for
Victor’s “failure” — sacrificing
his own ambitions to take care of
his father during the 1930s Depression. It’s an American values
play, but the raw outbursts of the
performance made the audience
uncomfortable at times. So intent is the show on purging
personal emotion that Ebrahimzadeh and Rafael Untalan
eventually crouch and bellow at
each other as they seek new
levels of soul-baring.
Untalan is a notably vulnerable Walter, making good sense
of the wealthy character’s emotional fragility and brittle armor.
Pearl Sun, in a money-green suit
as Esther, is persuasively frustrated as Victor’s wife, and she
shares some touching, intimate
moments with Ebrahimzadeh.
The play, which you might expect to find on one of Arena’s
bigger stages, is sized right in
the 200-seat Kogod Cradle, with
its woven wooden walls wrapping around the family attic. But
except when Linden’s wily Solomon coyly interjects, the passions could be better governed to
keep the audience alert to Miller’s logic as these midcentury
characters tally the decades of
their bitter give-and-take.

Still, it would be a mistake to

strong rebuke to Turkey:
Freedom of expression, including
for speech and the media,
strengthens democracy and
needs to be protected, it said.
Notably, it said, that includes
“even speech which some find
controversial or uncomfortable.”
Meanwhile, the executivebranch boss was lashing out at
American news organizations for
reporting that he found
uncomfortable — or, as he prefers
to put it, “fake.”
“It is frankly disgusting the
way the press is able to write
whatever they want to write. And
people should look into it,”
Trump stormed. Brandishing a
copy of the U.S. Constitution,
Jake Tapper of CNN retorted that
he’d done the investigation and
found the answers. (The
president later backed off a bit,
◆

saying he didn’t really want to
limit the media; he just wants
journalists to be what he
considers honest.)
Trump’s constant press attacks
carry a worldwide price — they
hurt America’s ability to stand for
democratic freedoms around the
world.
“When the president
consistently speaks that way,
there’s a loss of U.S. influence and
credibility on matters of press
freedom,” Joel Simon, executive
director of the Committee to
Protect Journalists, told me.
As Simon sees it, the American
government needs to be able to
exert influence — and maintain the
moral high ground — in all kinds of
cases involving the news media.
American officials lean on a
strong democratic reputation
when they raise concerns about
the treatment of the U.S. media
around the globe, he said,
“whether it’s the Chinese
government’s withholding visas,
or the Turkish authorities
expelling Wall Street Journal
reporter Dion Nissenbaum last
December, or the ban on CNN en
Espanol imposed in Venezuela.”
Turkey, nominally a
democracy, has a disturbing
record of human rights offenses
— including throwing many
journalists in jail.
But Trump keeps lavishing praise
on President Recep Tayyip
Erdogan, calling him a great
friend and (as with Vladimir
Putin) awarding high marks for
strong leadership. (Behind the
scenes, Turkey and the United
States have been in a bitter
disagreement about the arrest of
an employee of the American
consulate in Istanbul.)
It may be tempting to shrug off
Trump’s threats as nothing but
venting — or to see them as a big
slab of red meat to feed his base.
And it may also be tempting to
say his fighting words don’t
matter much because the worst
threats haven’t come to fruition.
But even if Trump can’t really
get a network’s broadcast license
revoked or libel laws changed, he
can still can — and does —
undermine American values,
both here and abroad, when he
attacks the press.
And no amount of
transparency-by-tweet or
backslapping access for reporters
can make up for that.

Screen Room
National Philharmonic
opens season in top form
BY
J OE B ANNO
The performance of Beethoven’s “Egmont” overture by the
National Philharmonic under
music director Piotr Gajewski, at
its season-opening concert at
Strathmore on Saturday, revealed a second-tier orchestra in
first-rate shape. If their playing
sounded somewhat cautious,
and if winds and brass lacked
that last ounce of personality you
find in upper-echelon ensembles, their discipline, tight execution and elegant string tone
would be the envy of any regional
orchestra.
The Beethoven was followed
by a pair of heavy-hitting concertos, played by a pair of heavy-hitting soloists. It’s no news to
report that Sarah Chang played
the heck out of the Bruch Violin
Concerto No 1; Chang tends to
play the heck out of everything.
Put a juicy concerto in front of
her, and she’ll squeeze 20 percent more juice out of it, and add
extra pulp.
Chang has received occasional
criticism about her extroverted
interpretations and showboating
stage presence. But as long as
that fearless technique is intact
(and it certainly was Saturday),
it’s possible to accept the sometimes trenchant tone and overly
febrile vibrato — and even overlook the self-conducting, the
femme fatale poses during rests
and the dramatic backward lunges on sustained high notes. It’s all
part of the Chang Show, and it’s

tremendous fun, provided you’re
not in the market for soul and
nuance.
As it happens, soul and nuance are what cellist Zuill Bailey
excels in. He played Dvorak’s
Cello Concerto on Saturday, digging into the slow movement
with luscious tone and spinning
long, ardent lines that captured
all the inwardness and rhapsody
Dvorak wrote into the score. And
that sensitivity didn’t preclude a
joyous virtuosity in the outer
movements that was just as dazzling as Chang’s, and with less
grandstanding. Both soloists had
the goods. Bailey’s goods were,
perhaps, just a little bit better.

The Cynic was declarer at

East signaled with the 10

Cy hopefully — and hastily — ruffed with dummy’s
eight of trumps, but East
overruffed and led the king of
spades.
The Cynic took dummy’s
ace, and because he couldn’t
get to his hand to draw
trumps, he tried to run the
clubs for spade discards.
West ruffed the second club
and led a spade to East for
down two.
Impulsive play did Cy in.
On the third diamond, he
must discard from dummy.
If West shifts to a spade,
Cy can take the ace, draw
trumps and return to dummy
with a club to discard his
last two spades on the good
clubs.

This year you advance
a pet project or longterm dream. You will
experience greater
fluidity financially, enabling
you to instigate a heartfelt or
long-term desire. If you are
single, you will internalize your
feelings. You might not even
be aware of this tendency.
You might get feedback
addressing that trait. If you
are attached, you and your
significant other benefit from
frequent getaways together.
Your relationship flourishes,
and you open up more easily.
Don’t internalize sarcastic or
dark comments. Virgo serves
as a great healer for you.
ARIES
(MARCH 21-APRIL 19).
Confusion surrounds you as
well as others in the a.m.
Sorting fact from fiction might
be somewhat stressful but

whether done by you or
someone else, seem timeconsuming.
TAURUS
(APRIL 20-MAY 20).

Elementary School in Fairfax Station, Virginia, is the October Class
of KidsPost. Many of her 25 students have dogs, enjoy soccer and

your teacher to download our questionnaire at wapo.st/

SATURDAY’S LA TIMES SOLUTION
Dear Carolyn: I
plan to ask my
girlfriend’s father
for permission to
marry his
daughter. How
early is this commonly done
before proposing and, if possible,
should it be in person? I’m not
planning on proposing for three
months. However, the parents
live a considerable distance away
and we are visiting next month.
Do I wait until it’s closer and ask
by phone or do it in person?
I guess my only concern is
keeping the secret for that long.
I’m fairly sure the father will, but
while her mother is great, she
may have more difficulty keeping
it quiet. (I’m assuming he’ll tell
her.) Thoughts?
— Asking Her Father
Carolyn
Hax
Asking Her Father: Do you think
your girlfriend wants you to ask
her father for permission to
marry her? Something that many
women, this one included, see as
a profoundly offensive
paternalistic holdover from a
time when women didn’t make
their own decisions like other
adult human beings?
If your girlfriend is
“traditional” this way, then, I’m
happy you found each other. Ask
both parents when you see them
— elder deference > male
deference — and ask them to keep
a lid on it, though I recommend
proposing immediately
afterward, because keeping
secrets from people you’re
supposed to be in an intimate
relationship with is incredibly
counterproductive. Especially
when the secrets are about them.
Re: “Secrets . . . about them”:
You think this way about a
surprise birthday party? So no
planning ahead because it’s
keeping a secret?
— Please . . .
Please . . .: You got me. Because
cake and the course of one’s life
are genuinely equivalent.
This topic blew up the queue
when it ran live. A sampling:
Before I proposed, I spoke
with her father — “I wanted to let
you know that I love your
daughter, and I’ll be asking her to
be my wife.” I knew she really
wouldn’t appreciate the
“property” overtones, but she’d
appreciate me and her dad having
a pleasant conversation and
being on the same page.
How about asking for his (and
her mom’s) blessing. Or support.
But the idea of permission is
antiquated and offensive.
Our now son-in-law didn’t ask
permission but came over to say
he loved her and hoped we would
be happy they wanted to get
married. And we are delighted!
The comments make it even
more with the nope. I am not
chattel. I am a person. And if you
want to ask anyone, ask my
mother, she’s the one in charge
anyway. :)
Don’t do it. Even my superconservative father rolled his eyes
and replied, “You’ll have to ask
her.”
I have to wonder how those
having a chat with the future
father-in-law would feel about
their girlfriends having the same
chat with their (the guy’s) father.
Or mother. You know, having a
pleasant conversation and being
on the same page.
Our now-son-in-law asked.
My husband said, “I have no
permission to give.”
Holy crap — way to rain on
the (sweet, traditional) guy’s
parade!

choosing a partner who shares
your beliefs. Thanks all.

files claim
alleging
collusion
Grievance says owners
are conspiring to keep
quarterback out of NFL
BY
M ARK M ASKE
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick,
who remains unemployed after a
2016 season in which he began the
movement of players protesting
during the national anthem, filed
a grievance accusing NFL teams
of colluding to keep him out of the
league, his legal representatives
said.
Kaepernick retained Los Angeles-based attorney Mark J. Geragos to pursue the collusion claim,
and according to a person with
knowledge of the filing, Kaepernick’s outside legal representation and not the NFL Players Association will be in charge of preparing and presenting his case.
Geragos’s firm confirmed the
grievance, saying it filed “only
after pursuing every possible avenue with all NFL teams and their
executives.”
In a statement, the law firm
also said: “If the NFL . . . is to
remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest

In needlessly tough game,
Cousins does what it takes
Late in the third quarter of the
latest Kirk Cousins Bowl, a most
preposterous scenario was given
life. The Washington Redskins, who
look like a pretty good team except
when they don’t, had watched a 17Jerry
point lead over the winless San
Brewer
Francisco 49ers devolve into a tie.
The thought of a disastrous loss had
gone from laughable to terrifying.
That’s when Cousins did something crazy to
match this wild, weird game. He ran, scrambling
behind the right guard and into the open field.
And at the end of an 18-yard gain, he took on San
Francisco free safety Jimmie Ward. He didn’t slide.

After surrendering a 17-point lead and allowing a

themselves staring at an upset of calamitous proportions.

Twenty-nine years after Gibson, Turner’s walk-off HR lifts L.A.
BY

los angeles — Off the bat,
there was no doubt. Dodger Stadium pulsed with the energy
provided by 54,479 crazies, many
of them Angelenos, just like the
man circling the bases, his arms
in the air, his red mane bouncing
behind him, his mouth agape
through the tangle of his beard.
“That’s the guy we want up

In Philly, ‘Trust The Process’ still requires a leap of faith when it comes to 76ers
So, what are we to
make of The
Process, the
Philadelphia
COUCH
76ers’ analytically
SLOUCH
correct,
anatomically
challenged Frankensteinian
attempt to conquer the NBA for
years to come?
The Process, in which the
76ers have been intentionally
bad for several seasons in order
to obtain high picks in the NBA
draft, boils down to this:
Lose now so we can win later.
The 76ers’ team credo is: Trust
The Process.
(This, of course, is almost a
direct contradiction to Couch
Slouch’s credo: Trust Nobody,
Not Even Yourself.)
I contend this is a flawed
“process,” intellectually,
spiritually and practically
speaking.
It is flawed because it is
fraught with flaws; if that isn’t a
fool-proof argument, I don’t
know what is.
Deliberately putting out a bad
Norman
Chad
product is a bad-faith gesture to
your paying customers and
impugns the integrity of the
game. It stinks to high heaven, if
there is still a high heaven.
If this idea of failing-now-tosucceed-later were applied to,
say, the conjugal world, that
would entail someone going
through a series of miserable
divorces in order to subsequently
equip themselves for a series of
flourishing marriages.
(Actually, to be honest, I
appear to be in the process of
doing this.)
So these 76ers just endured 1963, 18-64, 10-72 and 28-54
seasons to assemble their dream
team.
That’s four years of abysmal
basketball, losing on purpose,
which goes against The
American Way and goes against
The Fundamental Principles of
the Metaphysics of Morals.
Incidentally, it appears almost
every Philadelphia professional
sports team is in the midst of
The Process right now. Flyers,
Phillies, Union, Sixers — what’s
that, a hatful of winners?
Even the symphony orchestra
sounds like it could use some
fine tuning.
(Note to the Philadelphia
Orchestra: My apologies; I’ve
never heard you play — you’re
simply artistic-license collateral
damage here.)
By failing up, the 76ers have
assembled a turbo-talented,
young quartet of starters that
somehow already has a
nickname; as Joel Embiid
tweeted after Markelle Fultz was
selected with the No. 1 pick in
this year’s NBA draft, “The FEDS
are coming.”
The FEDS would be Fultz,
Embiid, Dario (Saric) and (Ben)
Simmons.
Appropriately, Kevin Durant
told Warriors teammate
Draymond Green shortly after,
“How they got a nickname and
they ain’t played no games
together?”
(Indeed, you think the Four
Horsemen of the Apocalypse got
their moniker while picking out
their stallions at a barn in South
Jerusalem?)
Anyway, these once-in-ageneration players still could go
bust, injury-wise or otherwise.
Simmons, entering his second
season, has yet to play an NBA
game. Embiid, entering his
fourth NBA season, has played
all of 31 games. Fultz was a oneand-doner in college, where his
school, Washington, was 2-16 last
season in Pac-12 conference
games.
But the Philadelphia fan base
largely believes in this Sam
Hinkie-hatched, tank-to-the-top
radical reboot of the franchise.
I spoke recently with
precocious 76ers fan Max Brooks,
17, a McLean High School senior.
(Max is son of my erstwhile
friend and Philadelphia native
Matt Brooks, executive director
of the Republican Jewish
Coalition. This chump-and-a-half
is so Philly fanatical, if he were
already in Philadelphia, he
would drive out of town just so
he could experience the ecstasy
of driving back into town.)
Max told me, “We now have
Federer tops Nadal
to win Shanghai title
Roger Federer extended his
winning streak over Rafael
Nadal this year to four matches
after beating the top-ranked
Spaniard, 6-4, 6-3, to win the
Shanghai Masters on Sunday.
The Swiss 19-time Grand Slam
winner, who still trails Nadal 2315 in their overall head-to-head
record, didn’t face a break point
and started and ended the
match with service breaks.
“I don’t know what my
expectations were going in,”
Federer said. “I thought I might
struggle early on because it was
a late finish last night.”
Federer took advantage of
three of seven break-point
opportunities in the match to
snap Nadal’s 16-game winning
streak, which included his China
Open victory last week. . . .
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of
Russia won her third WTA
singles title of the year, beating
Daria Gavrilova of Australia,
5-7, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3), in the Hong
Kong Open final.
The 3-hour 11-minute match
started after 9 p.m. local time
after it was delayed by several
hours because of a typhoon
warning that lasted most of the
day in Hong Kong.
The windy conditions made
late-night play difficult at both
ends of the court with a total of
103 unforced errors — 62 by
Pavlyuchenkova. . . .
In Linz, Austria, Barbora
Strycova ended a six-year wait
for her second WTA singles title
by defeating Magdalena
Rybarikova of Slovakia, 6-4, 6-1,

Having won 20 doubles
tournaments, the 26th-ranked
Czech player improved to 2-6 in
career singles finals after
winning her maiden title in
Quebec City in 2011.
GOLF
American Pat Perez won the
PGA Tour’s CIMB Classic,
claiming a four-shot victory over
compatriot Keegan Bradley at
TPC Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
He sealed his first title in
almost a year despite carding a
modest 3-under-par 69 in the
final round, courtesy of a strong
start with three birdies in the
first four holes.
The 41-year-old only managed
to make par on the back nine,
but did enough to finish the
tournament with a 24-under 264
to take home the $1.26 million
prize purse and 500 FedEx Cup
points. Victory also earned him
an automatic entry for next
year’s Masters in April.
Perez’s feat comes after a long
recovery from a shoulder injury
last year that threatened to
derail his career.
The bulky golfer admitted he
never expected to reign supreme
in the sweltering conditions in
Kuala Lumpur.
“Unreal. I think I’m the last
guy that expected to win this
week, to be honest with you. I
did not think I was going to win
this week,” Perez said. “I really
can’t explain it, it’s been an
amazing 12 months.” . . .

D.C. UNITED 0
F ROM NEWS SERVICES
Sebastian Blanco scored a pair
of second-half goals as the Portland Timbers defeated D.C. United, 4-0, on Sunday in Portland,
Ore., and clinched a playoff berth.
Near the end of the first half,
Portland forward Darren Mattocks intercepted a weak backpass by defender Chris Korb, then
was taken down by goalkeeper
Steve Clark for a penalty. Diego
Valeri knocked his shot past Clark
and into the lower left corner of
the net for his 21st goal. Valeri has
scored in 10 of the past 11 games.
“Getting that first goal really
makes a difference, because then
they have to open up,” Portland
Coach Caleb Porter said.
Portland goalkeeper Jeff Attinella preserved the lead in the
49th minute with two saves in
quick succession, first diving to
keep out a header by Luciano
Acosta and then blocking a rebound shot by Patrick Mullins.
A minute later, Portland doubled the lead. Alvas Powell dribbled in from the right wing and,
with no defenders attempting to
close him down, unleashed a leftfooted shot past a diving Clark for
his second of the season.
The Timbers extended the lead
to 3-0 in the 60th minute. Valeri
showed off his juggling skills
while controlling a long pass,
then exchanged passes with Blanco on the edge of the penalty area,
creating enough space for Blanco
to rip his own left-footed shot
inside the far post.
Blanco capped the scoring in
the 86th minute, picking up a
loose ball and dribbling past multiple defenders and Clark before
knocking in his eighth goal of the
season.
The win moves Portland (1411-8) into a tie with Seattle for
second place in the Western Conference with 50 points, two behind Vancouver, with the Timbers
hosting the Whitecaps in the season finale next Sunday. United
(9-19-5) remains in last place in
the Eastern Conference with
32 points.
“Unfortunately, we’re in a spot
right now [out of the playoffs]
where this is an evaluation process,” D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen
said. “We’re finding out who can
cut it and who can’t. That’s the
reality.”
TORONTO FC 1, IMPACT 0:
Host Toronto celebrated its Supporters’ Shield for the best regular
season record and then kept the
festivities going with a win over
rival Montreal.

Icardi’s big day
lifts Inter Milan
Argentine striker
Mauro Icardi scored a
hat trick in Inter
Milan’s 3-2 derby
victory over bigspending AC Milan on
Sunday, displaying
perfect timing to
redirect two crosses
before calmly
converting a penalty
for the winner in the
90th minute.
Suso and Giacomo
Bonaventura each
scored an equalizer
for visiting AC Milan.
Undefeated Inter took
sole possession of
second place in the
Italian Serie A league,
moving two points
behind perfect Napoli
and three ahead of
Juventus — the sixtime defending
champion — and Lazio.
Milan, which was
bought by a Chineseled consortium in April,
spent nearly
$250 million on new
players in the
offseason, but the
Rossoneri have lost
three straight and sit
10th with half as many
points as Napoli.
Bonaventura’s goal
made it 2-2 in the
81st, but then Ricardo
Rodriguez was given a
yellow card for a foul
on Danilo D’Ambrosio
and Icardi converted
the spot kick.

Mauro Icardi had a hat trick, including a winning penalty kick goal, to send Inter Milan to a 3-2 victory over AC Milan.
Everton draws
Wayne Rooney might
have saved his
manager’s job after a
last-minute penalty
kick secured a point for
Everton in a 1-1 draw at
Brighton in the English
Premier League.
Ronald Koeman’s
future as Toffees boss
looked in doubt when
Anthony Knockaert
gave Brighton the lead
eight minutes from
time, but Rooney kept
his cool and tied it.
While the draw only
lifts Everton to
16th place, it might be
enough to persuade
the club to give
Koeman more time.
Brighton is above
Everton in 14th thanks
to a superior goal
difference.
Elsewhere, host
Southampton played
to a 2-2 draw with
Newcastle.
Valencia rolls
In the Spanish league,
Valencia reached
second place with a 63 victory at Real Betis,
moving to within four
points of Barcelona.
Valencia sealed the
win in the closing
minutes with goals by
Simone Zaza and
Andreas Pereira.
Defending champion
Real Madrid — which
defeated Getafe, 2-1,
with a late winner by
Cristiano Ronaldo on
Saturday — is one
point behind Valencia
in third place.

entertainment,
bonding among
teams of diverse individuals,
glimpses at the country’s many
subcultures and a sprawling
legacy of homespun cheating, it
even reminds us of the little tips
about life, such as: Try to refrain
from assuming.
Many of us assumed that the
wee-hour machine from the
Northwest, No. 5 Washington,
not only would continue winning
for at least a while, but would be
able to score more than once
against a defense ranked 127th
(out of 130) in yards allowed per
play. At 6-0, the Huskies played at
so-so Arizona State in an
afterthought.
“They’re just playing better
than us,” Washington Coach
Chris Petersen told ESPN at
halftime of a preposterous 13-7
loss that howled with ghoulish,
missed third-quarter field goals
from 27 and 21 yards.
Many of us had assumed
Clemson darned-near
impenetrable because of the
brand of football it had exhibited
in September. The defending
national champion had looked so
well-thought-out, so all-grownup, even minus its departed
leader of 2016, Deshaun Watson.
It had done hard things on the
road at Louisville and Virginia
Tech. At 6-0, it played so-so
Syracuse on Friday in an
afterthought.
“My love for them is not
conditional,” Clemson Coach
Dabo Swinney had told his
players after their you’ve-got-tobe-kidding, 27-24 loss at
Syracuse. “It’s completely
unconditional. It’s not based on
the scoreboard.”
With that, he reminded us that
Clemson could take the loss,
however shocking, and that it’s
the 21st century. Bear, Bo, Woody
and John never discussed
unconditional love.
Similarly, many of us saw
Washington State reach 6-0 with
its 33-10 mastery of Oregon on
Oct. 7, right after its 30-27
toppling of Southern California
on Sept. 29, and we knew the
Cougars had grappled
successfully with success, a hard
art. They played so-so California
on Friday in an afterthought.
“You’re searching for a bright
spot; there’s no bright spot,”
Coach Mike Leach told a reporter
who was searching for a bright
spot the way coaches often do,
and reporters often don’t, after a
staggering 37-3 loss that included
seven turnovers for the visitors,
zero for the hosts. “We were
pathetic. You know, we were a
bunch of pathetic front-runners.”
He said his offensive line “think
they’re too good and they’re not
very tough.” He said his receivers
“didn’t create separation, because
they’re not very tough either.”
It all sounded inconceivable,

It was lights out late Saturday night for then-fifth-ranked Washington, which fell in a stunner at unheralded Pac-12 foe Arizona State.
which meant it fit right in with
this nutty sport played by very
young people, a sport that
reminds us that when we assume,
we make a mule out of “u” and
“me.”
Of course, 17 minutes into the
action and the non-action
Saturday afternoon at the mighty
Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge,
that wasn’t assuming. That was
something surer than assuming.
This thing was done. No. 10
Auburn led 20-0. It looked like
something that could keep
budding into something that
would be in a College Football
Playoff. It had nine first downs to
one for moribund LSU. It had 230
total yards to 67 for LSU. Its
foreboding defense had allowed
LSU one happy play, a 39-yard
completion to D.J. Chark, and
then promptly stripped him of
the ball. A 20-0 deficit looks steep
to all, yet steeper to LSU’s ugly
offense, with its 20th-century
splurges for three and four yards
at a time.
Two weeks prior, on the same
field, LSU got overpowered by
Troy, which then went around
assuming and lost to South
Alabama.
As a plausible response to all of
that, Tiger Stadium looked about
two-thirds full, or one-third
empty, depending on your
outlook.
Foster Moreau, the LSU tight
end, said he could feel the crowd
deflating, something players
must ignore.
At one point, wide receiver
Russell Gage got the handoff on a
swell play-call and streamed 70

Auburn 7-yard line. When he got
caught, LSU wouldn’t score.
When it did, on fourth down from
the 1, oh, okay.
About two hours later, LSU
fans rampaged out giddily. They
chanted. They sang. They made
cheerful percussion against a
metal overhang. Their team had
just finished a two-game delight
against Florida (17-16) and
Auburn (27-23), the latter the
biggest LSU comeback at Tiger
Stadium since 1949. Their oncehapless, once-hopeless, oncehelpless first-year coach, Ed
Orgeron, said, “We’re just
becoming a football team.” He
said Gage assured him at
halftime, “‘We’ve got you, Coach.
We’ve got this.’” He said, “That
ugly three or four yards
sometimes, it sets the tempo.” He
said LSU adapted its defense but
did not change it as, from
halftime on, it allowed four first
downs and six passing yards and
64 total yards in the win.
Players raved. Chark said he
had envisioned his crucial 75yard punt return before it
happened, having read it from a
previous punt return. Moreau
said, “I’m so excited for this
football team.” Cornerback Donte
Jackson, who had a huge breakup
on Auburn’s last reasonable
chance, said, “I was 5 for 5, five
times thrown at, no completions.”
He joshingly asked if reporters
could “put that on the record.”
Okay.
“I just want to go home and lie
down,” he said. “And then I’m
going to lie down, I’m going to
close my eyes, and I’m going to
dream about me missing that
pick” — a dropped interception in
the final minute, after freshman
Connor Culp’s emphatic field
goals from 42 and 36 yards had
pushed LSU ahead and then
further ahead, and after Orgeron
said, “I kind of believed he was
going to make it today for some
reason,” which all came after
people assumed LSU had a weak
kicking game.
No. 17 Michigan could have
assumed superiority at Indiana,
but it made a school-record 16
penalties and resorted to
overtime to win, 27-20, on its way
to No. 3 Penn State next week. No.
13 Southern California could have
assumed superiority with Utah
visiting, which would be weird
given Utah beat it last year but
then, it is glamorous Southern
California. It had to wriggle from
a 21-7 deficit with drives of 98, 88
and 93 yards to win, 28-27, and it
had to defend a last-minute twopoint conversion attempt by the
surpassing Utah quarterback,
Troy Williams. No. 19 San Diego
State, which had reached 6-0 and
had won at Arizona State, which
just beat No. 5 Washington,
welcomed an allegedly subpar
Boise State, which won, 31-14.
By the time any malcontent
who attempts to follow this game
switched off the late-night
television, Nos. 2, 5, 8 and 10 had
gone down in outcomes that
made no sense, with the feeling
there could not be a weekend any
more senseless, which is probably
an assumption.

With Stanford getting another
late-night start, Bryce Love made
sure to impress any Heisman Trophy voters who were watching
before the clock struck midnight
on the East Coast.
Love needed less than five minutes to reach the 100-yard rushing
mark for the ninth consecutive
game as he used another big run to
fuel No. 23 Stanford’s 49-7 victory
over Oregon on Saturday in Stanford, Calif.
Love’s 67-yard touchdown run
just 4:23 in was his second touchdown of the game, and the nation’s
leading rusher finished with 147
yards on 17 carries to help the
Cardinal (5-2, 4-1 Pacific-12) win
its fourth straight game.
“You love to see it every time,”
center Jesse Burkett said. “It never
gets old. It’s so much fun playing
in front of that guy.”
Love has 1,387 yards through
seven games despite carrying just
once in the second half this week
after getting banged up.
Royce Freeman ran for 143
yards for Oregon (4-3, 1-3), but the
Ducks had no passing game behind Braxton Burmeister and lost
for the third time in four games.
BOISE ST. 31, SAN DIEGO
ST. 14: The No. 19 Aztecs (6-1, 2-1
Mountain West) and Rashaad
Penny failed to establish the run or
any offensive rhythm against the
Broncos (4-2, 2-0) in San Diego.
The Boise State defense limited
Penny to 53 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.
Avery Williams returned a punt
53 yards for Boise State’s first
touchdown, and less than two
minutes later, Kekaula Kaniho returned a fumble by San Diego
State quarterback Christian
Chapman 34 yards for a 14-0 lead
in the first quarter.
ARIZONA 47, UCLA 30:
Khalil Tate followed up last week’s
record-setting performance with
another strong one, rushing for
230 yards and two touchdowns to
lead the Wildcats (4-2, 2-1 Pacific12) past the Bruins in Tucson.
The sophomore quarterback,
who took over for the injured
Brandon Dawkins early in last Saturday’s win over Colorado, set a
Football Bowl Subdivision singlegame rushing record for a quarterback with 327 yards in that
game.
Josh Rosen, the nation’s leader
in passing yards and total offense
entering the game for the Bruins
(3-3, 1-2), was held without a
touchdown pass for the first time
since the 2015 season.

Vrana finds success
by going to the net
In just the Washington Capitals’
second game of the season,
captain Alex Ovechkin spouted
an old Brooks Laich quote. “If
you want money, go to the bank.
If you want goals, you go to the
front of the net. Or whatever,”
Ovechkin said.
The full Laich quote from a
2008 game against the Atlanta
Thrashers: “If you want money,
go to the bank. If you want
bread, go to the bakery. If you
want goals, go to the net.”
As rookie Jakub Vrana found
himself searching for his first
goal of the season, “pressing,” as
Coach Barry Trotz put it, Vrana
was focused on that same
concept. He figured a “greasy
goal” that came from putting
himself in the right position
might be what got him going
this season.
Vrana has played fewer than
30 games in the NHL, still trying
to establish himself with the
Capitals and in the league after
the 2014 first-round pick spent
the majority of the past two
years in the minors. Confidence
and momentum can be
everything for young goal
scorers, and his plan to find
both by crashing the net paid
off. Vrana has scored two goals
in the past two games, and they
both came from within 10 feet of
the net.
“You’ve got to go to net, you
know?” Vrana said. “When
there’s momentum in offensive
zone, you’re going to go to net
and hopefully get some rebound
or get some tip. That’s where the

Jakub Vrana, right, scored for the second time in as many games in Saturday’s 8-2 loss to the Flyers.
goals are sometimes.”
Against the New Jersey Devils
on Friday night, Vrana tipped a
shot by Devante Smith-Pelly, a
pivotal goal that gave
Washington a 3-1 lead before the
second intermission. The
Capitals went on to win, 5-2, in
their most complete
performance of the season so
far. On Saturday in Philadelphia,
center Evgeny Kuznetsov
backhanded a puck into the
crease, drawing goaltender
Brian Elliott toward him so
Vrana could tap in the shot.
While Kuznetsov’s stunning
assist was the star of that play,
Vrana’s shot was one of just
three that the Capitals had
below the faceoff dots in a
woeful 8-2 loss to the Flyers.
“Those areas, I’ve got to get to
more,” Vrana said. “I’ve got to be
more aggressive around the net
and go more to the net. It was a
nice pass.”
Trotz was critical of the
forward trio with Kuznetsov,
Vrana and Ovechkin. “[Claude]
Giroux’s line just ate up
Kuznetsov’s line,” Trotz said
after the game. In the third
period, Trotz had veteran winger
Alex Chiasson skating with
Kuznetsov and Ovechkin while
Vrana was moved to a line with
Andre Burakovsky and center
Lars Eller.
Early in the season, Trotz
warned Vrana that might
happen at times and not to get
discouraged just because he’s
moved around in the lineup. It’s
unclear if Trotz will make
changes to his forward
combinations after Washington’s
loss to the Flyers, or if Vrana will
stick with Ovechkin and
Kuznetsov. Thanks in large part
to Ovechkin’s hot start, that line
has produced nine even-
strength goals to begin the
season.
It can also be a defensive
liability when it doesn’t have
possession, however, as was the
case Saturday night. Trotz called
Vrana into his office after
Thursday’s practice so the two
could discuss ways for Vrana to
improve his play without the
puck, details that could help him
ultimately have more
possessions so he could score
more. Vrana played in 21 games
with the Capitals last season,
but all three of his goals came on
the power play. The two this
season have both been at even
strength, just another step in his
transition to becoming a fulltime NHLer.
“It just gives me some
confidence,” Vrana said.
“Hopefully it’ll help me going
forward.”

Alex
Tuch
and
Vadim
Shipachyov made the most of
their debuts with the Vegas Golden Knights: They each scored
Sunday night in a 3-1 win over the
visiting Boston Bruins.
It was just the seventh career
NHL game for Tuch, who played
in six games with Minnesota last
season, while Shipachyov, a Russian import, was making his NHL
debut. Both players were recalled
from Chicago of the American
Hockey League to fill roster spots
for the Golden Knights.
Also making his Vegas debut
was goalie Malcolm Subban, who
stopped 21 shots for the win
against his former team. Subban,
claimed off waivers Oct. 3 from
the Bruins, got the nod after No. 1
goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was
placed on injured reserve.
Tuch, who had four goals and
an assist in three AHL games,
poked the puck away from Sean
Kuraly, skated past Kevan Miller
and beat Boston goalie Tuukka
Rask to give the Golden Knights a
1-0 lead with 5 minutes 21 seconds left in the second period. It
was Tuch’s first NHL goal.
Three minutes later, after Rask
stopped Tuch’s attempt and fell
on his back with traffic around
the net, Shipachyov slid the puck
past the scrum in front to make it
2-0 with 2:14 left in the period.
Rask made 23 saves for the
Bruins. With Rask pulled for an
extra skater, David Pastrnak
scored Boston’s goal with 30 seconds left.
Golden Knights center Oscar
Lindberg added an empty-net
goal with 14 seconds remaining.
SABRES 3, DUCKS 1: Benoit
Pouliot had the go-ahead goal
with 32 seconds left in the second
period for visiting Buffalo.
Justin Bailey opened the scoring early in the first period for the
Sabres, and Chris Wagner tied it
late in the second for Anaheim.
Buffalo’s Johan Larsson scored in
the game’s final minute.
Chad Johnson made 25 saves
for the Sabres, and John Gibson
stopped 28 shots for the Ducks.
Canadiens cut ties with Streit
A person with knowledge of
the situation said Montreal
placed defenseman Mark Streit
on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract.
The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because the Canadiens did not announce the move.
Streit cleared regular waivers last
week but did not report to the
minors.
Streit, 39, could return to his
native Switzerland to play and
prepare for the Olympics once his
contract is terminated. Montreal
had signed him to a one-year,
$700,000 deal.
Streit played just two games for
the Canadiens before being put
on waivers. He has 96 goals and
338 assists for 434 points in 786
regular season games with the
Canadiens, Islanders, Flyers and

Felix had a long journey
to Wizards roster spot
BY
C ANDACE B UCKNER
When Carrick Felix stands in
front of his audience as a motivational speaker, he begins by sharing the personal snapshots of his
life. The teachers who said he
would never graduate high school
and the bullies who persisted because of how easy it was to pick on
him as a pipsqueak. The nights
sleeping in his car while a studentathlete at Arizona State University
and the night he almost lost basketball.
The last story goes like this:
Felix was playing for the Santa
Cruz Warriors, the minor league
affiliate of the Golden State Warriors. He already had been cast
aside by two other teams and
missed substantial time in his
young career because of injury,
and it was about to get worse. Just
before taking off for a dunk, Felix
planted his foot and felt his left
knee cap snap in two.
“I swear it was like a life-flashing moment,” Felix said.
The injury led him on a tour of
self discovery in which he reinvented himself as an app developer in Silicon Valley as well as a
motivational speaker. This week,
though, Felix again can call himself an NBA player.
On Sunday, Felix defied the
odds as a non-guaranteed training
camp invitee and made the Washington Wizards’ final 17-man roster, completing an improbable
two-year comeback from his fractured left patella.
“I’m happy for him,” Coach
Scott Brooks said. “He’s one of
those players, you want him to
have success. He’s had some tough
times early in his career, and he
fought back, and he’s stayed positive and kept working. He’s earned
this spot. He wasn’t given it. He
earned it.”
After most Wizards practices,
the 27-year-old Felix is the last
player on the court. Even the mundane routine of free throw shooting sparks a megawatt smile. It
wasn’t always this way — Felix
once hated basketball.
An Air Force family, the Felix
clan bounced from state to state.
While his two older brothers
found stability in basketball —
with his mom, Beverly, coaching
— Felix was 5-foot-5 with skills
that lagged behind his peers. Instead, he loved skateboarding and
would much rather jump over a
box than practice his jump shooting.
“He was short for a long time. I
didn’t think he was going to grow,”
said Beverly Felix, who from her
sideline perch could hear the joking from the stands. “Parents even
commented how short he was.”
The adults were nice compared
with the kids at school. Besides
being small, Felix looked different
from most Arizona kids who liked
skateboarding and said he was
“bullied.” It also didn’t help that
Felix was diagnosed with attention-deficit disorder and was stigmatized for attending special-education classes. Beverly vividly remembers hearing the advice
from counselors to medicate her
son and learning secondhand how
teachers tried to steer him away
from college.
“What they said he couldn’t do,
he did,” Beverly said. “With Carrick, we wouldn’t let him fail, no
matter what.”
Before his sophomore year, Felix sprouted, and with this growth
spurt, which eventually brought
him to 6-6, his passion for basket-
ball developed. After junior college, Felix earned a scholarship to
play at Arizona State, and during
his senior season, his life changed.
Felix was going to be a father to a
little girl.
“Do I leave [school] or stay to
take care of her?” Felix asked himself.
Focus and decision-making can
be a struggle for someone diagnosed with ADD. And Felix, described at that time in his life as
“wayward” by his former ASU assistant coach Dedrique Taylor, became overwhelmed and took the
difficult path. He continued to
play basketball but gave every
dime of his student-athlete stipend to support the mother of his
child. Broke and virtually homeless, Felix spent parts of the season
couch-surfing and living out of his
car.
His unsettled life showed on
the court. One night after a game,
Taylor stopped Felix for a “come to
Jesus meeting” in the parking lot.
Felix sprawled out on his car in
tears, finally confessing the
weight on his shoulders.
“He was probably ashamed and
embarrassed and didn’t know
who to turn to,” said Taylor, now
the head coach for the Cal State
Fullerton men’s basketball team.
“He thought things were over and
heading in the wrong direction. It
was a bump in the road, but it
didn’t need to define his future.”
In his final year of eligibility,
Felix took Taylor’s advice on
changing his daily habits to heart
and made the Pacific-12 Conference all-defensive team while being named the conference’s scholar-athlete of the year and earning
his master’s degree. Behind this
work ethic, Felix was selected as a
2013 second-round draft pick by
the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“It was one of the best metamorphoses that I’ve been a part of
and I’ve seen with my own eyes,”
Taylor said.
Felix spent his rookie season
mostly in the minors, where he
slightly fractured his left knee and
missed more than a month. Felix
was traded to the Utah Jazz and
waived before the start of the
2014-15 season. Golden State’s affiliate picked him up, and early in
the season, Felix experienced the
devastating knee injury.
“I was told I would never be
able to play the game of basketball
again,” Felix said.
After the shock wore off, Felix
began the long road of rehabilitation. Along the path, he evolved
outside of basketball. With his
daughter, Zayah, as his inspiration, Felix and a friend developed
a travel app called ZNGIT that
pre-books outdoor recreation experiences for travelers. Felix
toured several schools and shared
his inspirational journey.
On Sunday as Felix walked into
the Wizards’ home locker room,
he began receiving congratulations from the guys he can now
call teammates. That’s when he
knew it was official and that he
now has a new snapshot to share.
“No matter what your dreams
are, you can make them come
true,” Felix said. “I’ve been called
stupid. My teachers said I would
never graduate. I was in special ed.
“I’ve lived different types of lifestyles and been through God
knows what. To be able to go
through that and be able to teach
it to others and help people overcome adversity and get to their
goals, it just means a lot to me.”

NASCAR
Keselowski dodges crashes,
races way into third round
BY
J ENNA F RYER
talladega, ala. — Brad Keselowski was in trouble when he
arrived at Talladega Superspeedway ranked 10th in the NASCAR
Cup Series playoff standings. He
knew he would need a big finish
to keep his championship
chances intact.
He delivered.
Keselowski earned an automatic berth into the third round
of the playoffs with a victory Sunday at Talladega, where he considered himself lucky to finish after a
sloppy day for NASCAR.
“I survived,” Keselowski said. “I
feel like only eight cars finished
the race. It was one of those crazy
days . . . a lot of attrition.”
There were just 14 cars running
at the conclusion, and only four
belonged to playoff drivers. The
race was red-flagged three times
for nearly 35 minutes.
By avoiding the carnage, Keselowski won for the fifth time at
Talladega and gave Ford a season
sweep of the four restrictor-plate
races. Most important, though, is
that he knows he’s still in the hunt
for his second Cup title.
Talladega was the perfect place
for Keselowski to take the stress
off his Team Penske team. He had
done it at the Alabama track
before.
When the elimination format
was rolled out in 2014, Keselowski
had to win at Talladega to advance. The race this year was
moved to the middle event of the
second round, so eliminations
weren’t at stake, but Keselowski
no longer needs to worry about
advancing.
He was the leader when the
race resumed with three laps remaining but was passed by Ryan
Newman, who stayed out front
until the final lap. Then Keselowski made his move around Newman on the high side of the track
to take the lead, and a crossover
move held off both Newman and
Penske teammate Joey Logano.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished
seventh in his final race at Talladega, where he and his father
combined to win 16 Cup races.
Alabama declared Sunday “Dale
Earnhardt Jr. Day.”

Astros caught a break when the Yankees couldn’t hold on
BY
D AVE S HEININ
houston — If your eyes told you,
in the full-speed real time of the
moment, that the Houston Astros
were crazy for sending Jose Altuve
home on the pivotal play in the
bottom of the ninth inning of
Game 2 of the American League
Championship Series on Saturday,
you don’t even know the half of it.
Watch it unfold in slow-motion
replay, and you figure the New
York Yankees should have nailed
Altuve by a country mile.
Dig deep into the numbers the
morning after, you are certain of it.
Thanks to the wonders of Statcast, the camera and player-tracking system installed at every MLB
ballpark several years ago, we
have more information than ever
— or than we might ever need, as a
critic might say.
But in the case of Saturday’s
decisive play, when Altuve scored
the winning run from first base on
Carlos Correa’s double in the Astros’ 2-1 win — giving them a 2-0
series lead as the teams head to
Yankee Stadium for Game 3 on
Monday night — the numbers provide useful, fascinating information that points to one certainty:
The Yankees botched what should
have been a sure out.
Here was the setup: 1-1 game,
one out, Altuve on first, Yankees
closer Aroldis Chapman on the
mound, pumping 99- and 100mph fastballs at the heart of the
Astros’ order.
Here are what the numbers say,
according to Statcast, via
MLB.com:
Altuve’s lead off first was
10.7 feet, well below the league
average against left-handed pitchers this season, which was
14.2 feet.
The time between the ball
leaving Chapman’s hand (at
99.3 mph) and Altuve touching
home plate with his hand for the
winning run was 10.6 seconds.
When the ball left the hand of
shortstop Didi Gregorius, the cutoff man who took the throw from
right fielder Aaron Judge, Altuve
was 56 feet from home plate.
When the ball touched the
glove of Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, who failed to catch Gregorius’s short-hopped throw, Altuve
ELSA/GETTY IMAGES
The Astros’ Jose Altuve was a blur Saturday, but Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had time to tag him out — if he had snared the relay throw.
was still a whopping 25 feet from
home. Almost a full second —
0.96 seconds, to be exact —
elapsed between the ball touching
Sanchez’s mitt and Altuve touching the plate.
The Yankees, it is overwhelmingly clear, should have had him.
“If I catch that ball,” Sanchez
said, “he’s going to be out.”
Astros third base coach Gary
Pettis, it is also clear, was probably
insane for even trying to score
Altuve there, with only one out —
though he told MLB.com he was
thinking “send” as soon as the ball
left Correa’s bat. The Astros jokingly call Pettis the most aggressive third base coach in the game,
and Saturday was a perfect example of why.
“Gary’s out of his mind,” center
fielder George Springer told reporters, with a laugh, after Saturday’s game. “It worked. I love it.
That was crazy.”
A well-executed relay from the
deepest recesses of the outfield is a
thing of beauty — as seen when the
Astros nailed Yankees leadoff man
Brett Gardner trying to stretch a
double to the right field corner
into a triple during Saturday’s
third inning — and it’s something
teams begin practicing from the
first full-squad workouts of spring
training.
A coach stands in the shallow
outfield grass and hits balls into
the gaps and the corners as different combinations of base runners
circle the bases. The coach barks
out various scenarios — for example, runner on first, one out, ninth
inning, tie game — and the players
practice it, over and over, until
they can practically do it in their
sleep. In this particular situation,
the defenders know one thing: All
that matters is keeping the lead
runner from scoring the go-ahead
run.
When the ball left Correa’s bat
Saturday, two well-practiced systems were launched. The Astros’
focus was on Altuve’s counterclockwise path around the bases,
from first to second to third to
home, that would, ideally, win
them the game. The Yankees’ fo-
cus was the opposite: It began at
home plate, where keeping that
run from scoring was all that mattered.
In right field, Judge, like all
three Yankees outfielders, was
playing deep to prevent the ball
from getting past him. When Correa’s liner went into the gap in
right-center, he moved over quickly and cut the ball off before it
reached the wall, exactly 343 feet
from home plate.
“If that ball gets to the wall,”
Judge said, “he’s scoring easy.”
But it isn’t easy to stop a speeding locomotive, and Judge — at
6-foot-7 and 280 pounds, the biggest position player in the game —
needed a few extra steps to slow
himself enough to make a throw.
And the throw itself, made slightly
across his body, may not have been
his best.
As the ball headed into the gap,
second baseman Starlin Castro,
the primary cutoff man, drifted
into shallow right-center — standard operating procedure — and
prepared to take the throw 183 feet
from home plate. Gregorius, the
secondary cutoff man, shadowed
him, 137 feet from home plate, in
case Judge made a longer throw
that went past Castro.
Which is exactly what happened — by design, according to
the Yankees, who knew Gregorius
has a stronger arm than Castro,
making him the better choice to
take the throw.
“He did the right thing: He got it
to Didi,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said of Judge. “That’s the
bottom line. He got it to the guy on
the field with the best arm.”
But as Judge’s throw came closer to second base — as opposed to
going on a line toward the plate,
where Castro and Gregorius had
shaded — the infielders had to
drift closer to the bag, which altered the angle and created one
more problem for the Yankees:
Gregorius took the throw just behind the bag and spun to throw
just as Correa was completing a
(perfectly legal) pop-up slide. That
forced Gregorius, like a quarterback feeling the heat of the pass
rush, to alter his throw slightly to
avoid Correa. Although they made
incidental contact, there was no
interference call, and the Yankees
made little attempt to claim Correa interfered with Gregorius.
The throw to the plate shorthopped Sanchez, who — notably
— both failed to remove his catcher’s mask (“I didn’t think of that,”
he said afterward) and tried to
field the throw with one hand
instead of two. As Altuve crossed
the plate, setting off a wild celebration for the Astros, the ball remained in the dirt, a few feet in
front of Sanchez.
“We like to put pressure on
teams,” Astros Manager A.J.
Hinch said. “Obviously, we run the
bases that way. We sometimes can
be a little too aggressive. But, man,
when it works, that feeling that we
applied enough pressure to make
a difference is key for us.”
But there are yet more numbers
to consider: There is Altuve’s
“sprint speed,” as measured by
Statcast, of 29.5 feet per second.
That is well above the MLB average of 27 and above even Altuve’s
season average of 28. There was
the way Altuve, a 5-6 blur of white,
gained speed as he circled the
bases: 3.62 seconds from first to
second (despite his short lead of
10.7 feet), 3.33 from second to
third and 3.32 from third to home.
There is almost no scenario in
baseball that could be more exciting than what went down on the
final play of Game 2 of the ALCS,
both for the situation and the key
figures at its center.
Chapman pumping hard heat
on the mound, Judge lumbering
over to cut off the ball in right field,
Altuve circling the bases: the scariest, hardest-throwing pitcher;
the biggest, most powerful position player; and the smallest, most
exciting player in the game — all of
them converging, in a 10.6-second
sliver of time, to produce a moment that can be dissected into a
thousand measurable pieces but
that, no matter how deep you go,
still defies logic and rational
thought.
The Yankees should have nailed
Altuve at the plate — easily. But
then again, maybe they never
stood a chance.

Turner’s drive lifts Dodgers in Game 2 Ex-reliever Webb dies in ATV crash

and a postseason hero. Listen to
what his manager, Dave Roberts,
said afterward.
“I’m not saying he’s David
Ortiz,” Roberts said. “But I played
with David, and you’re talking
about big spots and coming up
big, and J.T.’s that guy for us. He
just has that pulse where he can
kind of keep his calm and stay
within the strike zone and just
not afraid to fail and just wants to
be in that spot.”
If there’s a need, here in the
land of stars, for something celestial to believe that this, finally, is
the Dodgers’ year, well, then, here
it is. Turner’s shot not only was
the first walk-off homer for the
Dodgers in the postseason since
Kirk Gibson’s iconic rope off
Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley to
win Game 1 of the 1988 World
Series, but it came 29 years to the
day after that moment.
There’s no overstating what
Gibson’s homer means here. It
represents not just the Dodgers’
last championship but their last
pennant-winning team. Anyone
associated with that group —
from manager Tommy Lasorda to
ace Orel Hershiser to bit players
who might have been forgotten
otherwise — is treated like royalty at Dodger Stadium.
Turner is 32, so he wasn’t
much more than a rug rat growing up in Long Beach, bred as a
Dodgers fan, on the night of
Gibson’s homer. “I’ve told this
story I don’t know how many
times since I’ve been a Dodger,”
he said. And darn it if one of his
earliest
baseball
memories
wasn’t seeing Gibson’s homer —
and hearing Vin Scully’s call — at
his grandmother’s house all
those years ago.
“I can’t even put it into words
right now,” Turner said.
That might be the Cubs’ chief
sentiment at the moment. Chicago’s bullpen has been shaky in the
six previous games it played this
postseason, yielding a 7.08 ERA.
But Cubs Manager Joe Maddon
got what he needed out of Carl
Edwards Jr. and Pedro Strop in
relief of starter Jon Lester. But he
left lefty Brian Duensing in to
start the ninth inning of a tie
game.
The inning broke down thusly:
Yasiel Puig led off with a walk,
and Charlie Culberson bunted
him to second. Duensing then

postseason Sunday since Kirk Gibson in the 1988 World Series.
managed to strike out rookie
pinch-hitter Kyle Farmer, turning
the lineup over to the top, where
right-handed hitters Chris Taylor
and Turner waited.
This was, in fact, the perfect
spot for Chicago closer Wade
Davis, a hard-throwing righthander. Maddon, though, turned
to the veteran Lackey, whose
résumé shows 448 career regular
season appearances, 446 of them
starts.
Where the heck was Davis?
“I really just needed him for
the save tonight,” Maddon said.
“He had limited pitches. It was
one inning only, and in these
circumstances you don’t get him
up and then don’t get him in. So if
we had caught the lead, he would
have pitched. That’s it.”
The Cubs never caught the
lead. Not close, in part because
Los Angeles’s bullpen has pitched
at an otherworldly level — sitting
down 24 of the 25 hitters it faced,
with only Anthony Rizzo reaching and that on a hit-by-pitch.
Either way, Davis should be well
rested when the series resumes
Tuesday in Chicago.
After Taylor worked a walk off
Lackey, Turner came to the plate,
and Davis sat in the bullpen.
Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers’
lights-out closer, already had
pitched, striking out two of the
four men he faced in the top of
the ninth. Last offseason, Jansen
and Turner were both free
agents. The two are friends, and
Turner visited the mammoth
pitcher in his native Curacao,
hanging out on his boat, chilling.
They didn’t talk baseball, business, any of that.
But on the morning of Jansen’s
wedding, the two were getting
their hair cut together. They
talked about their fate and felt
joined together.
“At the time, I still didn’t know
what I was doing,” Turner said.
“We just talked about what it
meant to be a Dodger and how
good all the people are in this
organization, how good they’ve
treated us.”
That night, Turner agreed to
terms on a four-year, $64 million
deal. Within days, Jansen had
signed back, too, his deal for five
years and $80 million.
And this is what they did that
for, for nights such as Sunday.
With the count 1-0, Lackey dealt
Turner a 92-mph fastball. Turner
did not miss it. This wasn’t the
World Series, and Turner is not
yet Gibson. But listen to Dodger
Stadium thunder through the
hills as Turner rounded the bases,
and darned if it didn’t seem like
there would be more moments
like that here this October, all
these years later.

waverly, tenn. — Daniel
Webb, a former relief pitcher for
the Chicago White Sox, has died
in an ATV accident. He was 28.
Humphreys County Sheriff
Chris Davis said that Webb died
Saturday night. Davis said that
Webb’s wife and two other people
suffered “significant injuries” in
the accident, about 70 miles west
of Nashville.
Webb was 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA
in 94 games for the White Sox
from 2013 to 2016. The righthander pitched one inning in
2016, then had Tommy John
elbow surgery in June. He was
released by the White Sox after
the season and had not pitched
professionally during his recovery.
“Daniel left many friends
within the Chicago White Sox
organization and we are all
shocked and stunned by the
news,” the team said in a statement. “He was a terrific young
man with a full life ahead of him.”
PAUL SANCYA/ASSOCIATED PRESS
“He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him,” the
White Sox said about Daniel Webb, 28, who died Saturday night.
Webb was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2009 and
traded to the White Sox after the
2011 season in a deal for pitcher
Jason Frasor. Webb made his
major league debut in September
2013 at Yankee Stadium — the
first hitter he faced was New
York Yankees great Derek Jeter,
and Webb walked him.
Webb made 57 appearances
for the White Sox in 2014. He
pitched 110 innings in his career,
striking out 93.

BY
minneapolis — Harrison Smith
led Minnesota’s defense in a thorough dismantling of Green Bay,
as the Vikings knocked Packers
quarterback Aaron Rodgers out
of the game on Sunday with a
broken collarbone during a 23-10
victory that transformed the trajectory of the NFC North race.
Smith had 11/2 sacks on safety
blitzes, a diving interception and
two pass breakups, helping the
Vikings (4-2) limit the injury-depleted Packers (4-2) to a seasonlow 227 yards.
“I don’t think we altered a
whole lot,” Smith said. “We had a
game plan, and we pretty much
stuck to it.”
Anthony Barr, who later left
with a concussion, delivered the
game-changing hit on Green
Bay’s second drive when he took
Rodgers hard to the turf as the
two-time NFL MVP followed
through on a pass. Rodgers fell on
his throwing shoulder, and the
Packers announced he could miss
the remainder of the season.
“I’m not into the soothsaying
stuff,” Vikings Coach Mike Zimmer said, when asked if he
thought the momentum in the
division had shifted toward his
team.
“Obviously he’s a great player.
It’s different when he’s not in
there. There’s no doubt about it.
But that’s just the way it is.”
The impact did not appear to
be that violent at first glance as
Rodgers rolled through the hit.
But it became apparent quickly
that he was in considerable pain.
He writhed on the turf as Packers
Coach Mike McCarthy argued for
a roughing the passer penalty.
As Rodgers walked gingerly to
the sideline, he turned to jaw at
Barr before entering a tent on the
sideline for examination.
Eventually he rode a cart to the
locker room for further tests and
remained there throughout the
first half. He was initially deemed
questionable, but the Packers announced after halftime that he
would not return to the game.
He was 2 of 4 for 18 yards
before leaving, casting a pall over
the rivalry that always includes
thousands of Packers fans in Minnesota’s stadium.
It’s a crushing blow to a team
that entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations, optimism
gets you fired up. Sometimes you
get scared [that] you got him fired
up.”
After Stephen Gostkowski’s 28yard field goal made it 24-14 less
than a minute into the fourth
quarter, New York appeared to
make it a one-score game again
on its next possession when Austin Seferian-Jenkins took a short
pass from McCown and reached
over the goal line for a four-yard
touchdown.
But officials reviewed the play
and said the replay showed Seferian-Jenkins slightly lost control
of the ball when Malcolm Butler
nudged it loose as the tight end
was crossing the plane of the goal
line. Seferian-Jenkins didn’t regain control until after he had
stepped out of bounds, resulting
in a touchback — despite the ball
never hitting the ground. That
gave the Patriots the ball, and the
Jets’ sideline was irate.
“I feel like I scored,” SeferianJenkins said. “But at the end of
the day, that’s what the refs
called.”
kansas city, mo. — Le’Veon
Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers
spent Sunday beating up on the
Kansas City Chiefs.
Beating up the goal-post padding, too.
The Steelers’ star running
back churned out 179 yards and a
touchdown in a performance
reminiscent of January’s playoff
victory over Kansas City. And
Antonio Brown made an acrobatic touchdown catch in the fourth
quarter to help Pittsburgh hand
the Chiefs a 19-13 loss — their
first of the season.
“The biggest thing for us is
getting wins,” said Bell, who
drew a flag for celebrating his
score by throwing haymakers at
the goal-post stanchion. “As a
team, we find ways to get wins.”
The Chiefs (5-1) still had a
chance after Brown’s 51-yard reception made it 19-10, moving
quickly downfield and getting a
33-yard field goal from Harrison
Butker.
Their defense forced a quick
three and out, and Tyreek Hill’s
32-yard punt return gave them
the ball with 1:48 to go.
But after the Steelers (4-2)
gave up a first down, James
Harrison sacked Alex Smith on
third and 10, and the quarterback’s incomplete pass on fourth
down left the NFL with no unbeaten teams.
“We straightened a few things
out the second half. That’s how
we got back in the game,” said
Chiefs Coach Andy Reid, who
also was questioned for going for
it on fourth and two at the
Pittsburgh 4 early in the fourth
quarter, rather than kicking a
field goal to get within 12-6.
Smith’s throw to the end zone
fell incomplete, and the Steelers
took possession.
“My gut tells me what to do. I
thought that was the right thing
there,” Reid said. “I’m preaching
to the team to stay aggressive
without being stupid, staying
aggressive with it. We had a good
play in our pocket that we felt
good about. It didn’t work out.”
Very little worked out for the
Chiefs on Sunday.
Ben Roethlisberger was 17 of
25 for 252 yards with a touchdown and a pick for Pittsburgh,
bouncing back from his abysmal
five-interception performance
against Jacksonville last week.
He’s now 7-1 against Kansas City.
His favorite target was Brown,
who a few weeks ago was flipping
over water coolers but spent
Sunday slinging high-fives. He
had eight catches for 155 yards,
often beating star cornerback
Marcus Peters.
“The last little touchdown or
whatever, should’ve been an interception,” Peters said. “It
comes with the game of football.
Can’t do [anything] about it. . . .
We took an ‘L,’ back to the
drawing board.”
Pittsburgh’s defensive dominance was impressive considering the circumstances: The Steelers allowed more than 200 yards
rushing twice in the past three
weeks, while Kansas City was
averaging 32.8 points and 414.2
yards — and had just piled up
450 in a shootout victory over
Houston.
But the Steelers held Kareem
Hunt, the league’s leading rusher, to 21 yards on nine carries.
They also spent the afternoon
with their paws on Smith, holding the NFL’s top-rated passer to
246 yards and a touchdown.
“We’ve played a lot of games
against each other. These guys
have gotten the last three,” Smith
said. “They’re all hard-fought.
They’ve been physical, intense.”

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone early in Green Bay’s loss to Minnesota and may be out for the rest of the season.
based primarily on the right arm
of one of the game’s best quarterbacks.
“It’s devastating,” Packers wide
receiver Randall Cobb said. “No
question about it. First and foremost, that is one of my closest
friends, so to see him go down
with that is tough. We still have to
play football. We have a long
season ahead of us to figure out
what we are going to do.”
Brett Hundley, the only other
quarterback on the roster outside
of practice squad player Joe Callahan, was rushed into duty. He
finished 18 of 33 for 157 yards
with one touchdown and three
interceptions.
“Losing Aaron Rodgers speaks
for itself,” McCarthy said. “In my
opinion, he’s the best player in
football. This is the ultimate team
game. We need to be better with
the 11 people on the field that we
have, regardless of the phase that
we’re in. Ultimately that’s my
responsibility.”
Colin Kaepernick, who has had
difficulty finding a job since becoming the face of leaguewide
demonstrations during the national anthem that protest social
injustice, and Tony Romo, who
joined CBS as an analyst after
retiring from the Dallas Cowboys,
could be outside options to fill in
for Rodgers. But McCarthy said
after the game he was not considering anything like that.
“Brett Hundley and Joe Callahan, that’s what we’re going with,”
he said.
Hundley threw his first career
touchdown pass in relief, connecting with Davante Adams in
the second quarter after a 63yard return by Clay Matthews of
Jerick McKinnon’s fumble gave
the Packers the ball at the 18.
Damarious Randall’s interception of Case Keenum later in the
first half put the Packers at the
Minnesota 38 with a prime opportunity to tie the game at the
break, but a juggling catch by Ty
Montgomery at the goal line was
ruled incomplete by a replay review that forced a short field goal
instead and kept the Vikings in
front 14-10.
Keenum, making his fourth
start in place of Sam Bradford,
went 24 for 38 for 239 yards
without top wide receiver Stefon
Diggs. He threw 13 times to Adam
Thielen, completing nine for 97
yards.
McKinnon made up for his
turnover with 16 carries for 69
yards and a score and five catches
for 30 yards and a touchdown for
the Vikings, who have so far
survived the absence of Bradford,
Diggs and running back Dalvin
Cook, who is out for the season
with a knee injury.
Hundley was picked off three
times and sacked four times. The
Packers had five first downs and
102 yards over the first three
quarters.
“That was a hard day,” McCarthy said. “All the players that we
lost to injury, it was difficult. We
all understand the magnitude of
what Aaron means to our football
team.”
The Vikings have won three of
their past four games against the
Packers after a lopsided five-year
stretch against their biggest rival
fueled mostly by the mastery of
Rodgers. Now the Packers must
move forward with Hundley, who
has 44 attempts in three NFL
seasons.
“We’ve been put through a lot
of tests in the past,” Adams said.
“So just bounce back, figure it out
and rally. We’ve got a lot of faith
in Brett.”
Since Brett Favre took over for
the injured Don Majkowski in the
third game of the 1992 season, the
Packers have had Favre or Rodgers for all but nine games.
Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and
Seneca Wallace were forced to fill
in while Rodgers missed seven
games in 2013 because of a broken collarbone. Flynn started
once in 2010 when Rodgers sat
out with a concussion and again
in 2011 when Rodgers rested during the regular season finale with
the Packers having clinched the
top seed in the NFC playoffs.
Favre never sat at all.
“I hope @AaronRodgers12 is
OK!” Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted.
“The league is better when he’s
healthy. Praying for you.”
Brady claws out of two-TD deficit to claim record-setting win
PATRIOTS 24,

D ENNIS W ASZAK J R.
east rutherford, n.j. — Tom
Brady’s record-setting victory
was hardly smooth and easy. It
also wasn’t the prettiest of his 187
wins in the regular season.
Brady, who broke a tie with
Peyton Manning and Brett Favre
for the NFL regular season record, had to rally his New England
Patriots from a two-touchdown
deficit in the first half before
holding on for a 24-17 win over the
New York Jets on Sunday to claim
first place in the AFC East.
“I wish we had done better, but
we won,” said Brady, who was
limited in practice early in the
week with a sore left shoulder.
“Probably a lot to learn from it. I
wish we could have played better
offensively. . . . We hung in there
at the end.”
The Patriots (4-2) were playing
their first game in 10 days after
beating Tampa Bay, 19-14, on
Oct. 5, and they appeared a bit
rusty early as they fell behind 14-0
in the second quarter against the
surprising Jets (3-3).
“This was something we needed,” said Patriots safety Devin
McCourty, who had an interception. “We haven’t played particularly well in the fourth quarter. I
thought this was big for us as a
team to win when we had to play
well in the fourth quarter.”
New York had a chance to tie
the score after getting the ball
back with 1 minute 53 seconds
remaining, but the Patriots’ NFLworst defense held on by forcing
Josh McCown to throw incomplete on a desperation heave on
fourth and 16 from the Patriots’
49, ending the Jets’ three-game
winning streak.
“The mood in this locker
room,” Jets running back Matt
Forte said, “is we gave the game
away.”
Brady was visibly frustrated
early but got going just before

then marched the Patriots down
the field on their opening drive of
the second half, going eight plays
and 75 yards to give New England
its first lead at 21-14 on a 33-yard
pass to Gronkowski.
Brady finished 20 of 38 for 257
yards with those two touchdowns
and an interception. Dion Lewis
also had a one-yard TD run.

BEARS 27,
RAVENS 24 (OT)
BY
J EFF Z REBIEC
baltimore — Despite two inter-
returned it 90 yards for a touchdown, the Ravens scored 11
points in just 1:19 late in the
fourth quarter. Tucker kicked a
50-yard field goal to make it
24-16, and Michael Campanaro
returned a punt 77 yards for a
touchdown with 1:37 to play, the
Ravens’ second return score of
the game. Bobby Rainey had the
other, a 96-yard kickoff return
late in the third quarter to cut the
Bears’ lead to 17-10.
When Flacco hit tight end Nick
Boyle for the two-point conversion, the score was tied.
Not long after that, Tucker
nearly had a chance to win the
game in regulation, but Flacco
was unable to spike the ball in
time after Mike Wallace’s catch
put the ball on the Bears’ 40-yard
line.
But there was plenty of blame
to go around after this loss. The
Ravens allowed 231 rushing yards
— the most in franchise history —
and Howard’s 53-yard run in
overtime came after he appeared
to be stopped by safety Eric
Weddle for a modest gain. But
Weddle tried to strip the ball
away from Howard rather than
wrap him up, and Howard got all
the way to the Baltimore 40. An
18-yard catch on third down by
Kendall Wright over Lardarius
Webb set up Barth for the winner.
Otherwise, the Ravens’ problems started and ended on offense. After playing a clean game
in an Oct. 8 victory over the
Oakland Raiders, the Ravens
turned the ball over three times.
Amos’s 90-yard interception return of a ball that went off wide
receiver Chris Moore’s chest was
the big one.
But receiver Breshad Perriman
also juggled a potential thirddown reception in the second
quarter, and Bears cornerback
Bryce Callahan caught the ricochet and returned it 52 yards.
Two plays later, the Bears called a
halfback option, and running
back Tarik Cohen found tight end
Zach Miller in the back of the end
zone for a 21-yard score and a
10-0 lead. Ravens safety Tony
Jefferson, who was also beaten on
Dion Sims’s 27-yard touchdown
reception in the third quarter,
allowed Miller to get behind him.
Williams lost a fumble on a
third-down reception deep in
Bears territory in the second
quarter. Both Perriman (concussion) and Williams (foot) did not
return after their turnovers.
“I think every turnover is frustrating,” Ravens Coach John Harbaugh said. “It’s about as frustrating as it can get.”
Flacco finished 24 for 41 for
180 yards and two interceptions.
But during many of the offense’s
tough sequences Sunday, it was
hard to pin much of the blame on
the quarterback.
Jeremy Maclin’s injury forced
the Ravens to rely on their depth
receivers, and what remained of
the receiving group struggled to
gain separation and make contested catches.
Offensive coordinator Marty
Mornhinweg didn’t show a lot of
confidence in the passing game;
the Ravens stuck to a relatively
conservative game plan. That was
evident in the team’s possession
in overtime: The Ravens ran the
ball twice up the middle and then
tried a quick pass to Moore. The
ball fell to the ground, and the
Ravens’ final chance to win the
game went with it.
Washington at Philadelphia, 8:30 p.m.
ceptions by Joe Flacco that
bounced off his wide receivers, a
fumble by Maxx Williams deep in
Chicago Bears territory and the
offense failing to find the end
zone at all Sunday, the Baltimore
Ravens had the ball on their
40-yard line in overtime and a
chance to make three-plus hours
of offensive ineptitude moot.
They had all the momentum in
a game that should have long
been over, and a shanked punt
gave them great field position.
They didn’t even need a touchdown: Get two or three first
downs, and arguably the best
kicker in the NFL, Justin Tucker,
would trot onto the field with the
game on his foot.
But we’re talking about the
Ravens’ offense, for which nothing comes easy. Two runs totaled
eight yards, Flacco threw an incompletion on third and short
and out came the punter.
The Bears got the ball and
didn’t give it back. Jordan Howard’s 53-yard run on the first play
after the punt set up Connor
Barth, who ended a mistakefilled game with a 40-yard field
goal with just over two minutes
left in overtime to lift Chicago to
a 27-24 victory in front of an
announced 70,616, many of
whom left M&T Bank Stadium
before the Ravens mounted a
comeback to force the extra session.
“This one definitely hurts,” Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs
said. “Despite everything that
happened, we still had a chance
to win the game, and we didn’t do
it. It sucks to lose a game when
the defense is on the field. It’s just
unfortunate. This one sucks.”
That was the consensus in the
locker room as the Ravens (3-3)
lost to a previously one-win Bears
team and its rookie quarterback,
Mitchell Trubisky, who completed just eight passes. Yet the Ravens still needed a near-miraculous comeback to force overtime.
Trailing 24-13 with just over
five minutes remaining after Baltimore native Adrian Amos
picked off a pass by Flacco and
Dolphins 20, Falcons 17
Texans 33, Browns 17
Saints 52, Lions 38
Rams 27, Jaguars 17
Chargers 17, Raiders 16
Jay Cutler and Miami finally
generated some offense.
Matt Ryan and Atlanta totally
fell apart.
The result: a stunning victory
for the Dolphins.
Cutler threw a pair of touchdown passes, Cody Parkey kicked
a pair of field goals, and Miami
rallied from a 17-0 halftime deficit, rekindling memories of Atlanta’s Super Bowl collapse.
And next up for the Falcons —
a rematch against the Patriots.
“It’s tough,” Atlanta LB Vic
Beasley Jr. said. “We experienced
that feeling before.”
Ryan, who had five interceptions in the two previous games,
threw another crucial pick with
the Falcons (3-2) in position at
least to attempt a tying field goal.
Cordrea Tankersley got a hand
on a pass intended for Austin
Hooper, and Reshad Jones
swooped in to make the gameclinching interception inside the
10-yard line with 39 seconds left.
Parkey put the Dolphins (3-2)
ahead for the first time with 2:30
remaining, booting a 38-yard
field goal after a gutsy play by
WR Jarvis Landry, who was hit
by six players but still managed
to power ahead for a first down.
Houston QB Deshaun Watson
wants more.
After setting two rookie touchdown records in a win over
Cleveland, Watson wasn’t satisfied.
Watson threw for 225 yards
and three touchdowns, becoming the first rookie in NFL history with at least three touchdown passes in three straight
games, helping give the Texans
(3-3) the victory.
Watson has thrown 15 touchdown passes, the most in NFL
history by a rookie in a team’s
first six games.
“It’s pretty cool. It’s straight,”
Watson said. “I should have had
more.”
The Browns (0-6) lost their
16th in a row on the road.
Cleveland made yet another
change at quarterback this week,
benching rookie DeShone Kizer
for Kevin Hogan to make his first
NFL start. Hogan threw three interceptions to drop Coach Hue
Jackson’s record in Cleveland to
1-21. Jackson wouldn’t say who
will start next week.
RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin
Kamara combined for 237 yards
from scrimmage, New Orleans’s
resurgent defense forced five
turnovers and scored a franchise-record three times, and
the Saints beat Detroit in a game
that wound up being nowhere
near over after New Orleans took
a five-touchdown lead.
The Saints (3-2), who have a
winning record for the first time
since their last playoff season in
2013, had to gut out a remarkable bid by the Lions (3-3) to pull
off the greatest comeback in NFL
history.
The Lions trailed 45-10 in the
third quarter but scored four
straight touchdowns, including
one on a 74-yard punt return by
Jamal Agnew and another on
A’Shawn Robinson’s close-range
interception near the Saints’ goal
line, to pull as close as 45-38 with
6:41 still left.
Pharoh Cooper returned the
opening kickoff 103 yards, one of
two special teams touchdowns
that helped Los Angeles beat
Jacksonville.
The Rams (4-2) also blocked a
punt for a score and a 10-point
lead in the first half. Malcolm
Brown returned the loose ball
eight yards for the franchise’s
first such touchdown since 2005.
The Jaguars (3-3) botched a
decent chance to tie the game
early in the fourth quarter when
Blake Bortles fumbled on one
play and then threw an interception on the next. It cost Jacksonville a shot at ending its up-anddown start to the season.
Los Angeles essentially sealed
its third road victory on Greg Zuerlein’s 29-yard field goal with
2:32 remaining. The Rams
hadn’t started 3-0 away from
home since 2001.
The Jaguars, coming off an impressive victory at Pittsburgh,
still haven’t won consecutive
games in more than a year and
lost for the ninth time in
10 games at EverBank Field.

Nick Novak kicked a 32-yard
field goal on the final play of the
game, and Los Angeles took advantage of a key missed extra
point by Giorgio Tavecchio to
beat Oakland.
The Chargers (2-4) had been
done in by poor kicks this season,
losing twice on misses by former
K Younghoe Koo. Novak missed a
48-yard field goal in the first
quarter, but it was the missed extra point by Tavecchio — after a
high snap by Jon Condo early in
the fourth quarter — that proved
to be the difference in a fourth
straight loss by the Raiders (2-4).
Philip Rivers took over at his
own 8 with 4:09 to play and used
two long passes to Hunter Henry
to move the Chargers into field
goal range.
The Raiders had taken the
lead on a 47-yard end-around by
Cordarrelle Patterson, but that
and the return of QB Derek Carr
weren’t enough to end this slide.
Oakland last lost four in a row
during an 0-10 start in 2014.
Carr, who missed last week’s
game with a broken bone in his
back, threw for just 171 yards
with two interceptions and a
touchdown.

The Buccaneers (2-3) lost QB
Jameis Winston to a right shoulder injury in the second quarter
with the Cardinals (3-3) leading
21-0.
But backup Ryan Fitzpatrick
threw for 290 yards and three
touchdowns to bring Tampa Bay
back from a 31-0, early thirdquarter deficit.
Fitzpatrick’s 37-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans cut Arizona’s lead to 38-33 with 2:02 left.
Larry Fitzgerald recovered the
onside kick, and with no Tampa
Bay timeouts remaining, the Cardinals ran out the clock.
Peterson, acquired in a trade
with New Orleans on Tuesday,
carried 26 times and scored on a
27-yard run to cap Arizona’s first
drive. He added a one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

NFL week 6
For some fans, these are signs of the time in football
PROTEST FROM D1
game.
Over the past seven days, the
Trump administration has taken
renewed aim at players who
protest police brutality against
African Americans by kneeling
during the national anthem before football games, advancing a
debate and further inflaming
tension on social media, in parking lots and in bleachers.
On Oct. 8, a week before six
49ers players knelt during the
anthem Sunday in Landover,
Vice President Pence briefly attended a game in Indianapolis
between the Colts and the 49ers
before abruptly leaving because
several San Francisco players
took a knee during the anthem.
“I will not dignify any event
that disrespects our soldiers, our
Flag, or our National Anthem,”
Pence, the former Indiana governor, tweeted that day.
President Trump said later
that he had instructed Pence to
leave Lucas Oil Stadium if players from either team knelt during the anthem. And it was a
good bet he wouldn’t be there
long because more than a year
ago it was Kaepernick, the 49ers
quarterback, who took a knee
and ignited a movement; of the
players in various sports who
have protested during the anthem, none have done so with
more consistency than the 49ers.
“This looks like a PR stunt to
me,” said Eric Reid, a San Francisco defensive back who has
knelt before games throughout
this season. “He knew our team
has had the most players protest.
He knew that we were probably
going to do it again. This is what
systemic oppression looks like.”
Trump, who last month called
for NFL owners to “fire” players
who kneel, this past week further
intensified the debate by praising NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell for “demanding” players
stand for the anthem. Trump also
praised Dallas Cowboys owner
Jerry Jones, who told reporters
last week that he would bench
players who protest during the
anthem.
“Stand for Anthem or sit for
game!” Trump tweeted last week.

Harry and Rocky Fulwiler of Manassas hold up their signs Sunday
at FedEx Field during the Redskins’ game against the 49ers.
A few weeks ago, Fulwiler, 60,
asked his girlfriend, Sherri, to try
to get tickets for the Redskins’
game against the 49ers. Sherri
has worked at her job for
28 years, and her boss sometimes
hands out his season tickets in
the front row of Section 221 —
three prime seats at the 50-yard
line. Last week, she called Fulwiler with good news.
And the way Fulwiler saw it, it
wasn’t just a day at the stadium;
with Washington’s opponent being who it was, this was a chance
to take a stand of his own.
“The Niners started this,” Fulwiler said Sunday afternoon.
“Man, I’m just tired of it all.”
His son chimed in.
“We can’t keep anything sacred anymore,” Harry Fulwiler
said, and Thursday they made
their signs and devised their
plan. When the anthem played,
with an unobstructed view of the
49ers’ bench, Harry would hold
up one sign — “0-5,” it read,
referring to the 49ers’ 2017 record, “Play Football NOT Politics”
— and Rocky would hold the
other: “United WE STAND.”
They drove to Landover on
Sunday morning and parked at
FedEx Field, where some fans
wore the No. 7 jersey of Kaepernick, who is not on an NFL team
but whose symbolic presence at
NFL stadiums — five seasons
after he led San Francisco to the
Super Bowl — is impossible to
ignore.
“I’m wearing it because I believe in what he’s doing,” said
Tara Williams, who along with
her husband traveled from South
Carolina for Sunday’s game.
Kevin Williams, who said he’s
an Army veteran, said their jersey choices were, like kneeling
itself, a form of silent expression.
“It’s a free country: You can do
what you want, wear what you
want,” Kevin Williams said. “If
Kaep can do it, I can do it, too.”
Anthony Johnson, 35, also
traveled a long way and had been
planning this weekend for
weeks. He bought his tickets in
August, and when he and his son
left Norfolk on Friday, he made
sure his Kaepernick jersey was

New York capped a stormy week
of injuries and infighting by stunning Denver.
The Giants (1-5) pulled off one
of the season’s biggest upsets by
dominating Denver in every
phase from start to finish. The
Broncos (3-2) blew a golden opportunity to close on Kansas City
in the AFC West after the Steelers
knocked off the last unbeaten
team in the league earlier Sunday.
Jason Pierre-Paul had a trio of
sacks for the Giants, who came
into Denver tottering from a tumultuous week in which three
wide receivers landed on injured
reserve, five other starters were
sidelined with injuries and CB
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
was suspended for insubordination.
It was a wipeout, all right, just
not the one everyone was expecting.
“Nobody is giving us a chance
in hell to win this ballgame,”
Coach Ben McAdoo said as he
prepared to bring his team to
Denver, where the Broncos were
healthy, coming off a bye and
leading the league in defense.
Yet the Giants had a goal-line
stand to go with four sacks and
two interceptions. And it was the
Broncos who bumbled their way
through a nightmarish night
filled with muffs and mistakes.
QB Trevor Siemian was
knocked out of the game briefly,
and he lost right tackle Menelik
Watson (calf ) along with WRs
Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah
McKenzie to ankle injuries.

packed.
“He’s standing for people who
don’t have a voice,” Johnson said.
He and his son spent the
weekend in Largo and made
their way to the stadium early
Sunday, filtering across the lots
and through the turnstiles. Their
tickets were in the third row of
Section 221, with a view of the 50
and the 49ers’ sideline — and of
the Fulwilers and their signs.
“We stand for America,” Rocky
Fulwiler said. “We stand for the
flag. We stand for football.”
Johnson stood, smiling, two
rows behind Fulwiler.
“As long as he doesn’t block my
view, I’m fine,” Johnson said.
Johnson said no one at the
stadium had been critical of his
Kaepernick jersey, though he
nonetheless wondered whether,
on the way back to Norfolk, he
would face a complicated discussion with his son about the
quarterback who made the No. 7
famous, the realities of being
African American in 2017 and his
hope that white Americans such
as the Fulwilers could see Kaepernick’s movement from a place
of empathy rather than of criticism alone.
“This nation was built on
diversity,” Johnson said, on a
foundation of peaceful disagreement and connection born in
unexpected places.
A few minutes before kickoff
Sunday, a father and son from
Norfolk stood two rows behind a
father and son from Manassas,
from different places and backgrounds, supporting different
teams and on opposite sides of a
highly charged debate — but on
the same side of a football stadium in Section 221.
“We’re here to watch football,”
Rocky Fulwiler said from the
first row.
Johnson said that’s all he
wanted out of this day.
“United we do stand. At the
end of the day, I’m here to watch
football,” he said from the third
row, and though the fathers were
separated by a stadium row and
a bit more than that, maybe for a
few hours on a bright afternoon
in Landover, they could agree on
that much.

NFL NOTES
Owners want NFLPA
to help end the protests
F ROM NEWS SERVICES
AND STAFF REPORTS
NFL owners are hopeful that
the NFL Players Association will
lend its support this week to a
measure by which players would
stand for the national anthem before games, according to several
people familiar with the league’s
inner workings.
Owners are scheduled to meet
Tuesday and Wednesday in New
York. DeMaurice Smith, the executive director of the NFLPA, and
player representatives are scheduled to attend the meeting, at
which the raging anthem-protest
controversy is set to be discussed.
Such a step of players agreeing to
stand for the anthem could come
in conjunction with the league
officially supporting communityrelated activities important to
those players who have had a role
in the protests.
“We’ve been trying to get [players] to stand voluntarily, but it’s
not happening quickly enough,” a
high-ranking official with one
NFL team said. “Fans are angry. I
think we would like to get NFLPA
support.”
It’s not clear whether such support from the union will be forthcoming, that high-ranking team
official said, adding that the “owners want the kneeling to stop, as
do the vast majority of players.”
That high-ranking team official
also said: “I don’t know where we
will end up.”
Another person close to the deliberations said the NFLPA did not
know how this week’s discussions
would play out and could not speculate on what will be discussed.
It also is not clear whether the
owners will take action to require
players to stand for the anthem if
the NFLPA does not support such
a measure.

Winston injures shoulder
Buccaneers
quarterback
Jameis Winston injured his right
throwing shoulder during the second quarter of Tampa Bay’s 38-33
loss Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals.
Winston did not return to the
game but told reporters afterward
he was optimistic he could play
next week against the Buffalo
Bills.
“I don’t think I’ve [ever] missed
a game,” Winston said, according
to the Tampa Bay Times. “I don’t
think I’m going to miss a game,
either.”
X-rays on Winston’s shoulder
were negative, but the quarterback will undergo an MRI exam
Monday.
JAGUARS: Rookie running
back Leonard Fournette left Jacksonville’s 27-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth quarter
with an ankle injury and did not
return.
Fournette was reportedly medically cleared to come back, but
coaches held him out with Jacksonville already down by 10 points
in the waning minutes of the
game.
— Associated Press
Kaepernick files grievance
accusing teams of collusion
KAEPERNICK FROM D1
made great theater imitating
weeks ago — should not be punished and athletes should not be
denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the
Executive Branch of our government. . . . Protecting all athletes
from such collusive conduct is
what compelled Mr. Kaepernick
to file his grievance.”
The collective bargaining
agreement between the league
and the players’ union prohibits
teams from conspiring to make
decisions about signing a player.
But the CBA also says the mere
fact that a player is unsigned despite evidence he is good enough
to be on an NFL roster does not
mean it is collusion.
For that reason, such cases are
difficult to prove, according to
legal experts.
“There has to be some evidence
of an agreement between multiple teams not to sign a player,”
said Gabriel Feldman, the director of the sports law program at
Tulane University. “Disagreement
over personnel decisions, as obvious as it may seem to someone
looking at this, does not provide
evidence of collusion. There has to
be some evidence of an explicit or
implied agreement. There has to
be proof of a conspiracy.”
Kaepernick opted out of his
contract with the San Francisco
49ers following last season, making him a free agent eligible to sign
with any team. The 49ers have said
they would have released Kaepernick rather than retain him under
the terms of that deal. He has
remained out of work, being
passed over by other teams in favor of other quarterbacks. The Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens considered signing Kaepernick but decided against doing so.
More recently, the Tennessee
Titans signed Brandon Weeden to
provide depth behind backup
Matt Cassel when their starting
quarterback, Marcus Mariota,
was hurt. That signing seemed
particularly inflammatory to
Kaepernick supporters, who cited
Kaepernick’s superior career accomplishments. Kaepernick led
the 49ers to a Super Bowl and two
NFC championship games, and he
threw 16 touchdown passes with
four interceptions for them last
season.
The NFLPA issued a written
statement late Sunday saying it
learned of Kaepernick’s grievance
through media reports and that
the league previously was informed of Kaepernick’s intention
to file the grievance.
“Our union has a duty to assist
Mr. Kaepernick as we do all players and we will support him,” the
NFLPA’s written statement said,
adding that it had been in regular
contact with Kaepernick’s representatives over the past year
about his options and planned to
schedule a call for this week with
his advisers.
Kaepernick refused to stand for
the national anthem before games
last season to protest racial inequality and police mistreatment
of African Americans in the United States. Those protests were
taken up by other players, and the
controversy over them has been
amplified this season even with
Kaepernick out of the league.
President Trump has called on
NFL owners to fire or suspend
players who protested during the
anthem, referring to such a player
as a “son of a bitch.” Vice President
Pence walked out of a game last
week between the 49ers and Colts
in Indianapolis, citing players’
protests. Trump indicated that he
had orchestrated that plan.
Under pressure from the White
House, NFL owners are scheduled
to meet Tuesday and Wednesday
in New York and might seek the
NFLPA’s support of a measure for
players to stand for the anthem,
according to multiple people familiar with the sport’s inner workings, while also pledging league
support for players’ community
activism efforts.
Some media members have
contended since the offseason
that Kaepernick was being blackballed by NFL teams based on his
political stance. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and owners
were asked about that contention
on a number of occasions and
denied that teams were acting in
concert on Kaepernick because of
his protests.
“Each team makes individual
decisions on how they can improve their team,” Goodell said at
the conclusion of an NFL owners’
meeting in May in Chicago.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross told reporters in July,
according to the Palm Beach (Fla.)
Post: “I would sure hope not. I
know a lot’s been written about it,
but you know owners and coaches
— they’ll do anything it takes to
win. If they think he can help
them win, I’m sure — I would hope
they would sign him.”
The plan for Kaepernick to pursue a grievance under the CBA
was first reported by Bleacher
Report.
“It may seem obvious to Colin
Kaepernick,” Feldman said in a
phone interview Sunday. “It may
seem obvious to someone on the
outside looking at this. But collusion requires an agreement [between teams]. Individual team decisions are not challengeable under the anti-collusion provision.
An arbitrator is not going to second-guess an individual team’s
personnel decision.”
If such evidence of collusion by
NFL teams against Kaepernick
exists, it has yet to be revealed.
“We don’t know,” Feldman said.
“. . . There may be evidence here of
collusion. We just don’t know.”
The NFL declined to comment
Sunday through a spokesman.

Redskins fail to put game away early Patchwork secondary finishes the job
BY
M ASTER T ESFATSION
Through the first 28 minutes
of Sunday's game, the Washington Redskins appeared to be
sizing up the San Francisco 49ers
for the knockout blow. They dominated their opponent in all phases in the first half, and they were
just a few combinations away
from putting the game out of
reach.
But Washington eased up during the final two minutes before
halftime and for much of the
second half. The Redskins were
still able to squeeze out a 26-24
victory at FedEx Field, but the
potential technical knockout
morphed into a narrow split
decision.
The 49ers (0-6) scored 17
straight points to tie the game
late in the third quarter. The
shaky stretch for Washington
started on a two-minute drill to
end the half, when rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard came off
the bench to lead San Francisco
on an 11-play, 75-yard drive that
ended with a one-yard touchdown run from Carlos Hyde as
time expired in the first half.
San Francisco failed to convert
on a third down earlier in the
series, but Redskins safety D.J.
Swearinger was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct to extend
the drive. Former Redskins wide
receiver Pierre Garcon trucked
safety Montae Nicholson, knocking Nicholson’s helmet off, and
decided to flex on a reception
that was two yards shy of a first
down. Swearinger, a defensive
captain, took offense to Garcon’s
actions. He said Garcon came
over and tapped helmets with
Swearinger, who shoved Garcon’s
helmet to draw the penalty.
“I didn’t react when I seen
[Nicholson] go down,” Swearinger said. “I reacted when I seen a
guy flexing to the crowd. You
ain’t even get the first down. I’m
like why are you even celebrat-
ing, because you ran my man
over? You ain’t even get the first
down, so why are you even talking? But in that situation, I can’t
react back. I just got to let him
head-butt me, but I’m going to
take up for my guy regardless of
the situation.”
Garcon has displayed throughout his 10-year career, which
includes five seasons in Washington, that he can get under an
emotional player’s skin. The penalty jolted the 49ers, who scored
10 points and missed a field goal
in their three possessions during
the third quarter.
Washington’s offense sputtered in that same quarter with
its two possessions. The Redskins punted on their first drive
in the second half, and then tight
end Vernon Davis lost a fumble
on the first play of the following
drive.
“I think I gave them a little
momentum with the penalty,”
Swearinger said. “That kind of
gave them life, because if I don’t
give them that penalty, they kick
[a field goal] and they still dead. I
got to do a better job of keeping
my composure.”
The Redskins were able to
remain composed against a desperate 49ers team seeking its
first victory. They saw their ninepoint fourth quarter lead dwindle down to just two as San
Francisco approached midfield
during the final minute. Unlike
at the end of the first half,
Washington’s defense was able to
get the stop it needed as Kendall
Fuller recorded his second interception of the season to seal the
victory with three seconds left.
“We gave them the momentum,” defensive end Terrell McClain said. “We were making
mistakes on both sides of the ball,
and they started capitalizing on
stuff. You give a team that’s down
motivation and momentum, and
it kind of changes the game. And
they’re not a bad team. They’re
actually a real good team. It’s just
the fact that they haven’t found a
way to finish it out, and we did.
So that’s all that matters.”
Dunbar gets it done
Redskins cornerback Quinton
Dunbar replaced Josh Norman,
who was out with a rib fracture,
in the starting lineup and had an
impressive performance. He tied
for a team high two passes defended, including a critical deflection while defending Garcon
on the final drive that was nearly
intercepted.
The wide-receiver-turned-cornerback has made the transition
appear seamless. Dunbar has
been a backup throughout his
three-year career, but he keeps
rising to the occasion when the
team’s depth gets tested at the
position. Redskins Coach Jay
Gruden said Bashaud Breeland
will receive an MRI exam on his
knee Monday, which means Dunbar could be relied upon once
again in a significant role against
the Philadelphia Eagles next
Monday night.
Grant makes clutch catches
Wide receiver Ryan Grant
made some big-time catches that
looked eerily similar to Garcon’s
work in a Redskins uniform.
Grant finished with three
catches, all resulting in first
downs, for 39 yards. During a
drive on which the Redskins
regained the lead on Dustin Hopkins’s 21-yard field goal in the
fourth quarter, Grant hauled in
an 18-yard reception on third and
11 and a 15-yard catch on second
down to move the chains.
Gruden has believed in Grant
because of how reliable he has
been in practice. He has displayed his dependability at times
this season when given the opportunity, and Grant did the
same when Washington needed a
play Sunday.

R ICK M AESE
As Washington Coach Jay
Gruden ran through the list of
injured players, a trend quickly
emerged. A safety hurt his knee.
So did a cornerback. Another corner injured his hamstring and a
second safety hurt a shoulder.
Gruden might as well have been
doing roll call in the defensive
backs meeting room.
“Our whole secondary got
hurt,” veteran linebacker Zach
Brown said later.
And yet when the Redskins
needed a stop most in Sunday’s
26-24 win over San Francisco, the
patched-up secondary, which featured just one regular starter on
the field, came up big, stopping
the 49ers’ late threat and intercepting a pass that sealed the
victory.
How unlikely was the last-minute lineup? Injured starters Josh
Norman and Deshazor Everett
were in street clothes, ruled inactive before the game. Bashaud
Breeland, the other starting cornerback, was on the sideline with
a knee injury he suffered in the
third quarter, and cornerback Fabian Moreau had just tweaked his
hamstring.
Kendall Fuller usually lines up
in the slot but he was forced to the
outside, a position he never practices, and rookie Joshua Holsey
was called into the game for one
of the final plays — the first
defensive snap of his career coming when Sunday’s stakes could
not have been higher. The Redskins led by all of two points and
the 49ers, winless and desperate,
had crossed midfield with less
than 20 seconds to play.
“Every snap in this league is
important. That was just a little
bit more intense than a regular
snap,” Holsey said of his first
action at cornerback. “You just
got to always be ready.”
The secondary tried to seal the
edges and protect the first-down

marker. The result: San Francisco
rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard
closed the game with four
straight incomplete passes. The
final one came on fourth and 20
and was intercepted by Fuller at
the Washington 32-yard line.
The secondary wasn’t perfect,
allowing an unproven, 23-yearold quarterback to help lead the
49ers back into a game that
should have been more lopsided.
But Gruden seemed pleased with
the play of his reserves.
“I think they all stepped up,” he
said. “You’re talking about not a
lot of experience back there.”
Defensive backs coach Torrian
Gray might as well have had a
revolving door on the sideline
Sunday, as all his young players
were pressed into action. Even
the ones who were still standing
at the end missed had several
plays due to injuries: Swearinger
and Stefan McClure hurt their
knees and Montae Nicholson injured his shoulder.
Swearinger said he’d have an
MRI on his MCL on Monday, and
Moreau, McClure and Nicholson
were hopeful that they’d be practicing this week. Nicholson’s injury prompted the most grimaces,
as his helmet popped off on what
at first glance appeared be a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit. But he
said later that it was his shoulder
that actually suffered the impact.
“It was more shock,” he said,
“because my arm didn’t look
right, if you pick up on that. But I
had to calm myself down until my
trainer got there, told ’em to keep
talking to me. I knew I would be
all right.”
The unit felt Sunday’s performances helped solidify their identity and reinforce their next-manup mentality.
“We know the depth that we
have in this secondary,” Fuller
said. “Everybody can come out
there, everybody can make plays,
everybody’s smart. That’s just
how we gotta do it as a group.”
Cornerback Quinton Dunbar
impressed the most on Sunday,
filling Norman’s big shoes. Starting for the first time this year, he
was aggressive all game, whether
he was lined up against Pierre
Garcon, who didn’t have a catch
until the final minute of the first
half, or Marquise Goodwin, who
finished the day with only two
receptions.
“We expect no drop-off, man,”
Dunbar said of the rotating cast of
defensive backs. “That’s the standard we hold. . . . Everybody prepares like starters.”
In the offseason, Swearinger
nicknamed the secondary “Flight
Marshalls,” because he says they
control the air. When Fuller came
down with the interception that
sealed the win, Swearinger quickly found his teammate on the field
to celebrate. He patted Fuller
down, spun him and simulated
handcuffing his teammate.
“He locked the game up at the
end,” Swearinger explained later,
“so I had to lock him up.”

After a Sunday afternoon of
fleeting momentum and mass
hyperventilation, players in the
relieved Washington locker
room celebrated and teased
Cousins for the way he retrieved
their dignity before 75,568 at
FedEx Field. The run, which
was the second of a 16-play
drive that resulted in a fourthquarter field goal, revived the
team. Later, his seven-yard
touchdown run with 3:28
remaining provided just enough
padding to withstand the 49ers’
rally in a 26-24 victory.
In a game that Cousins threw
for two touchdowns, he made a
lasting impression with his legs.
And his audacity.
“We appreciate his effort,” left
tackle Trent Williams said. “We
appreciate the intensity he
plays with, the competitive
nature he possesses. But that’s
an expensive shoulder right
there. You don’t want to see him
lowering it into anybody. Told
him, ‘Next time, just think
about sliding.’ ”
If Cousins had an acerbic
personality, he would have
replied to his teammates, “Next
time, just think about playing a
complete game.”
It should have been a
blowout, but the hard-luck
Niners only lose close games.
They have lost five straight by
three points or fewer. They have
been outscored by just 33 points
this season, which makes them
the most competitive 0-6 team
in league history. Or the most
heartbroken. Washington could
have spared those poor souls
another round of what-ifs, but it
likes a little drama, too.
So the defense couldn’t finish
after San Francisco Coach Kyle
Shanahan benched Brian Hoyer
and turned to rookie C.J.
Beathard. And the offense
pressed pause for several
possessions and committed two
turnovers, the second of which
was a fumble by Vernon Davis
that led to Carlos Hyde’s gametying touchdown.
Even after Cousins’s runs,
clutch throws and solid
decision-making helped
Washington recover and take a
26-17 lead, the win wasn’t
secure until Kendall Fuller’s
interception with three seconds
left. Once he caught his breath,
Redskins Coach Jay Gruden
tried to find the right
perspective about such an
incomplete performance.
“You can see we’re starting to
turn a corner a little bit when
you’re not quite as ecstatic as
you normally would be after a
win,” Gruden said of his 3-2
team. “There are a lot of things
we can correct and clean up,
obviously, but I’m impressed. I
know we can play a lot better.”
A month ago, it was unlikely
that Washington could have
gained 419 yards and converted
7 of 14 third downs against any
NFL team, no matter how many
zeros you put in the opponent’s
win column. Before the season
started, it would have been
parade-worthy if the defense
limited an offense to 335 yards
without injured cornerback
Josh Norman, no matter the
quarterback. Now the standard
is higher. It must be if
Washington wants to separate
itself from all the sort-of-good,
sort-of-blah teams that occupy
the NFL.
Progress starts, as always,
with Cousins. This was a game
in which his presence made the
difference. San Francisco
doesn’t have a quarterback; it
has a merry-go-round shouting
plays in the huddle. But
Washington has a stable and
productive signal caller who has
elevated the offense from
struggling to effective in just a
few weeks.
Cousins didn’t play a great
game Sunday, but he still
finished with 330 passing yards.
After San Francisco tied the
game, Cousins led Washington
to nine points on the two most
important drives of the game.
The first — propelled by
Cousins’s daring run — was a
16-play, 72-yard test of patience
that lasted more than seven
minutes and concluded with a
21-yard Dustin Hopkins field
goal. The second was a nineplay, 84-yard clinic that
included a 51-yard pass to Davis
and ended with Cousins
trotting into the end zone off a
read-option play.
“We did a good job as an
offense,” Cousins said. “There
were a lot of good decisions, a
lot of good plays made, a lot of
third-down conversions in big
moments, a lot of crucial drives
where we had to churn the
clock and come away with
points. So I was proud of the
way our offense played today. It
wasn’t perfect. There were a
couple of mistakes, but all in all,
we did a lot of good things.”
This game — call it Cousins
Bowl II — was billed as a battle
between the team with Cousins
commitment issues and the
team that would love to have
him. In keeping Shanahan
winless, Washington is now 2-0
against former offensive
coordinators who played a role
in Cousins’s development.
He won Cousins Bowl I
against Sean McVay and the Los
Angeles Rams by coming up
huge late. He did it again
Sunday. If Josh Doctson had
completed that leaping catch at
Kansas City two weeks ago,
Cousins’s fourth-quarter
exploits this season would be
celebrated even more. He has
shown vast improvement in
clutch situations. He continues
to build a convincing case that
he’s deserving of a lucrative
long-term contract. But don’t
expect the 49ers, who are
comfortably in the race for
Southern California
quarterback Sam Darnold, to be
Washington’s competition. They
are competitive, but they aren’t
a $28 million-a-year
quarterback away from being
good.
“I didn’t really watch much of
Kirk,” Shanahan said when
asked to assess Cousins’s play.
He saw enough, I’m guessing.
Cousins wasn’t at his best,
particularly in the red zone. But
he did everything required to
get a victory that became
unnecessarily difficult.
“I wasn’t trying to be a hero,”
Cousins said of taking on Ward.
“I just got caught.”
His mistake proved
inspirational. After Williams’s
warning to Cousins, offensive
linemen Spencer Long and
Brandon Scherff looked at their
quarterback and declared, “We
kind of liked it.”
Whatever it takes to beat a
winless team.

Redskins survive more injuries
REDSKINS FROM D1
chestrated the Redskins’ Super
Bowl championships, heaved a
deep throw that could have set up
such a kick.
Redskins cornerback Kendall
Fuller intercepted it, preserving a
26-24 victory that lifted his team
to 3-2 but raised troubling questions about Washington’s ability
to close games — games like Sunday’s, which never should have
been close.
In the feel-bad, feel-good aftermath, Coach Jay Gruden acknowledged the Redskins’ drives that
should have produced touchdowns but yielded field goals instead. He was acutely aware of the
defensive gaffes and third-quarter fumble that let the 49ers back
in a game that should never have
been in doubt.
But Gruden bundled all those
woulda, coulda plays into a big
bag and proclaimed it good —
proof that the 2017 Redskins were
capable of finding ways to win
when things went wrong.
“You start to feel better about
your team when you’re not as
happy after a win as you normally
should be,” Gruden said. “We responded and got the victory.
That’s all that matters.”
In terms of the offense’s progression, the victory was encouraging. Cousins was 25 of 37 for 330
yards, two touchdowns and one
interception, while rushing for a
third touchdown. Cousins also
scrambled for an 18-yard gain that
sparked the offense immediately
after the 49ers tied it late in the
third quarter, leading with his
shoulder, to the alarm of left tackle Trent Williams, rather than
sliding to a soft landing.
“That’s an expensive shoulder
right there,” said Williams, who
deserved his own medal of valor
for playing despite a painful knee
injury. “Told him, ‘Next time, just
think about sliding.’ ”
Third-down specialist Chris
Thompson proved his value time
and again, accounting for 105 receiving yards and another 33 on
the ground.
And as a gauge of the Redskins’
depth, the game was encouraging,
as well. Lacking cornerback Josh
Norman from the outset, the defensive backs took a pounding.
Starting cornerback Bashaud
Breeland left the game with a
knee injury, and second- and
third-string corners and safeties
had to fill the gaps.
“We are as strong as our weakest link,” said Fuller, who was
nearly tasked with playing safety
when the shorthanded rotation
was shy a man. “We always talk
about not having the drop-offs.
Anybody who is in there, we trust
to make plays.”
But as a measure of the Redskins’ closing ability, the game
was too close for comfort. Had it
not been for an offensive pass
interference call on former Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon,
which cost the 49ers 10 precious
yards on their final drive, and
Fuller’s victory-sealing interception, Gruden’s squad might have
suffered its second defeat on its
home field — this, in a game they
were favored to win by 10 points.
Meantime, San Francisco,
which fell to 0-6 on the heels of its
fifth consecutive loss by three
points or fewer, seems to have
found its next starting quarterback in Beathard, who was sent in
for the hapless Brian Hoyer midway through the second quarter.
Beathard was 19 for 36 for 245
yards and one touchdown.

C.J. Beathard’s fourthand-20 pass with

The 49ers (0-6) know

Worst defense
After Washington took
a 26-17 lead with 3:28

question remaining
seemed to be whether
Washington would
cover the double-digit
point spread.
Beathard, the rookie

alone run a twominute drill in an NFL

and hold o≠ the winless 49ers
on Davis was off to the races with a
the fourth quarter. Davis finished
ards. ABOVE: Kirk Cousins had the
unday afternoon after his 25-for-37
two touchdown passes and ran for
up the difference for the Redskins.
There was no question the Redskins were the superior team less
than five minutes into the proceedings. They scored on their
first possession while forcing
punts on San Francisco’s first four
drives, rolling up 153 yards to San
Francisco’s 11 in the first quarter.
But as the first half ended, there
was also no question the Redskins
lack the moxie and resolve to put
away an inferior opponent early,
allowing Beathard to engineer a
touchdown drive with less than
two minutes remaining in the first
half, making it 17-7 at the break.
The Niners, moreover, got the
ball to open the second half. And
though Fuller made a terrific
breakup of a third-down pass play,
San Francisco’s Robbie Gould
cleared a 52-yard field goal to
narrow the Redskins’ lead to 17-10.
The Redskins were forced to
punt on their next possession
when replay ruled Jamison
Crowder’s knee was down before
his second-surge effort to wring a
few more yards out of a thirddown carry.
A breakdown on punt return
coverage set the 49ers up with a
drive starting at midfield. It was a
brief but costly defensive stand
for Washington, with Breeland
helped off the field, unable to put
weight on his left leg, after a
collision. A sack by Matt Ioannidis
brought up Gould for another
field goal, but his effort sailed
wide.
Relief settled over the crowd of
75,568. It, too, was brief, interrupted by a disastrous sequence
in which San Francisco knotted
the score at 17 apiece as the third
quarter ticked away. Tight end
Vernon Davis fumbled, allowing
defensive back Jimmie Ward to
secure the ball and race toward
the end zone. A last-second shove
from Cousins knocked him out of
bounds at the 1-yard line. From
there, Carlos Hyde carried it for
the game-tying score.
On the subsequent drive, Cousins’s scramble set a defiant tone.
Ryan Grant provided another first
down with an acrobatic catch.
Thompson topped the 100-yard
receiving mark with his next big
gain. Davis redeemed himself
with a catch that took the Redskins to the San Francisco 4.
But the 49ers’ defense — which
ranked 31st in the NFL on thirddown stops entering the game —
turned back three attempts to
score from there. Hopkins
knocked in a 21-yard field goal to
restore the lead, 20-17, with 10:34
to play.
At this point, the Redskins’ defense was without either starting
cornerback and relying on rookie
Fabian Moreau and former wide
receiver Quinton Dunbar to keep
the Niners’ passing game in check.
But it was San Francisco’s secondary that gave up the big plays.
Davis, at 33, turned a midrange
throw from Cousins into a 51-yard
gain against his former team, taking the ball to the San Francisco
22. Cousins finished the drive
himself, running seven yards for
the touchdown that restored a
two-score lead, 26-17, with 3:28
remaining.
The celebrating had barely ended before Beathard had his Niners
in the Redskins’ end zone, connecting with Aldrick Robinson on
a 45-yard touchdown.
Instead of putting the game
away, the Redskins gave San Francisco a chance to eke out the upset
in the final minute.
“It don’t matter,” Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said. “It’s a W.”
liz.clarke@washpost.com
Kirk Cousins
trotted into the
end zone to finally
knock out the
wobbling 49ers,
and a stadium
Dan
exhaled. The
Steinberg Redskins were up
by two scores.
They would win going away. They
had handled this wacky week —
the winless opponent, the pile of
injured bodies, the strange
officiating — and could now
calmly proceed to next week’s
prime-time division battle, upand-coming reputation intact.
Ha! Ha-ha!
“It was like, ‘Oh, thank
goodness,’ ” Coach Jay Gruden
said a few minutes after
Washington finished off its 26-24
win with all the grace of a threelegged giraffe walking through
greased ball bearings in high
heels. “And then all of the sudden,
[bleep], here we go.’ ”
Or, as linebacker Zach Brown
put it, “all kinds of [stuff] just
started happening.”
“Ugly win” does not do justice to
this event. This was a win so
ghastly its parents would cover it
with a mask. A win whose
highlights should come with a
warning: “This video contains
footage some viewers may find
distressing.” It was, say, the
equivalent of winning a baseball
game via an intentional walk, a
passed-ball strikeout, a catcher
interference and a hit by pitch.
(Sorry!)
From the moment Cousins
scored to put the Redskins up by
nine with just 31/2 minutes left,
everything went sideways. The
Redskins missed the extra point.
They allowed a rookie quarterback
making his NFL debut to march
75 yards in 90 seconds, capped by
a 45-yard touchdown pass on a
broken coverage. They recovered
the onside kick but ran the ball
three times, failed to get a first
down and then punted — into the
end zone, naturally, netting just
25 yards.
That rookie quarterback, C.J.
Beathard — who spent his
childhood shagging footballs for
$50 a week during Redskins
training camps, playing catch with
Joe Theismann and hanging out
with the Pardee, Petitbon and
Gibbs kids — wasn’t done yet.
Pairing with a coach named
Shanahan and a wide receiver
named Garcon, the grandson of
former Redskins general manager
Bobby Beathard took his team to
the Washington 40-yard line with
28 seconds left, needing just a few
more yards to give San Francisco a
shot at a game-winning field goal.
Redskins defenders — a ragtag
crew whose ravaged secondary
might require its own full-time
medic — had been telling
themselves: Just don’t let the
49ers get to the 40.
“And then when they got there, I
was like ‘Yo, what the [bleep],’ ”
joked Brown, the linebacker.
What happened next might not
make the year-end highlight reel,
but maybe it should. After an
incomplete pass, Brown saw the
49ers line up for what he assumed
would be a pick play. He had seen
such penalties called repeatedly
against the 49ers this year; they
had already been whistled for
offensive pass interference four
times in their first five games.
Brown also remembered studying
a previous 49ers game in which a
defender tried to avoid getting
picked by Pierre Garcon, which
allowed the play to proceed on
schedule.
“I knew he was going to pick me
anyway, so I ran to him, and I ran
into him,” said Brown, who’s as
honest as he is smart. “But I was
protecting myself, too. And when
he threw the flag, I was like ‘Good
flag, ref.’ ”
The penalty pushed the 49ers
out of field goal range, and they
spent their next three plays
proving why they haven’t won a
game: incompletion,
incompletion, interception. And
so the Redskins finished off their
Very Ugly Win, the natural NFL
complement to Week 4’s
Encouraging Moral Victory.
“Ain’t no such thing as an ugly
win,” linebacker Mason Foster
said. “A win is a win to me. So it
don’t matter if it’s by one point, a
half a point, triple or quadruple
overtime; it counts as a W.”
(Fact check: four Pinocchios!
The NFL doesn’t have triple
overtime. And half points only
matter if you’re getting three and a
hook in Vegas.)
I don’t think Fact Checkers
would ding me, though, if I
pointed out that Washington
made more than enough mistakes
to lose this game. Team leader D.J.
Swearinger took an
unsportsmanlike conduct penalty
at the end of the first half that
turned a field goal into a
touchdown. The offense tried, and
failed, to get off a quick snap
before a Washington first down
catch could be reviewed. (It was
reversed upon review.) Cousins
threw a near interception that was
overturned on replay, and then
threw an real-life interception on
the next play. Washington failed to
get into the end zone on a first and
goal from the 4.
And all that came before the
final sequence, which included
that 45-yard touchdown to former
Redskins wide receiver Aldrick
Robinson, whom the alwaysgracious Kyle Shanahan had made
a game captain.
“Blown coverage,” Gruden said.
“You can’t do it. You can’t do it.
Really, what should have
happened in that game is even if
they do score, we get the onside
kick, and then even with their two
timeouts, we should be able to run
the clock out. That’s what I was
most angry about.”
He’s not wrong. They didn’t
because the Redskins could hardly
run the ball at all down the
stretch; Washington’s 11 fourthquarter carries went for 22 yards.
But the Redskins also didn’t
because Gruden chose to play it
safe, rather than asking his
veteran quarterback to bootleg
and either make a controlled
throw or slide down inbounds. He
could have tried to win the game
right there instead of waiting to
potentially lose it.
“I wanted to throw so bad,”
Gruden said. “But I thought the
right play, based off your guys’
decisions, would be to run the
ball.”
It was all emblematic of the
final few minutes: a Washington
team that should have been good
enough to put the 49ers away for
good just wasn’t able to do it.
“We’re still enjoying this win, it
doesn’t matter, but we just can’t
put our defense in that situation,”
running back Chris Thompson
said.
It’s a mature response from a
team that seems unexpectedly
wise. Gruden made a point of
noting that his own postgame
unhappiness was itself a sign of
progress; “you can see we’re
starting to turn a corner a little
bit when you’re not quite as
ecstatic as you normally would be
after a win,” he said. And it goes
without saying that no one
should apologize for this result,
not on a day when the Atlanta
Falcons lost at home as doubledigit favorites, not in a league
whose only previously
undefeated team — the Kansas
City Chiefs — just scored 13
points in a loss at home.
Had the 49ers handled the last
30 seconds better; had Brown not
recognized the pick and sold the
interference; had the official not
bought what he was selling, the
result could have been
catastrophic for this season. So
just say your thanks, burn the film
and move on.
“I’m glad we won, don’t get me
wrong,” Gruden joked. “I just wish
it wasn’t so stressful. I’m getting
old, man. I’m losing hair.”
Not that there’s anything wrong
with that.
