tokyo — Prime Minister Shinzo
Abe secured a crucial victory in
Japan’s parliamentary elections
on Sunday, with his ruling bloc
maintaining a supermajority
that could allow it to push for a
revision of the nation’s pacifist
constitution.
With results still trickling in
Monday, public broadcaster
NHK reported that Abe’s Liberal
Democratic Party and its smaller
coalition partner, Komeito, had
received at least 312 seats in the
465-seat House of Representatives.
The result further illustrates
the political savvy of Abe, 63, who
has proved an enduring force in
Japanese politics despite scandals and fluctuating approval
ratings.
“This is a win for Abe,” said
Sheila Smith, a Japan expert at
the Council on Foreign Relations,
adding that the supermajority
showed “a real endorsement of
Abe’s leadership”
The decisive victory is expected to bolster Abe’s hopes in an
upcoming leadership contest
within his party, potentially cementing the prime minister’s
place in history. If Abe serves out
a complete four-year term, he
will remain at the helm during
the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games
and become Japan’s longestserving prime minister.
However, any attempt to
amend Japan’s postwar constitution may end up being Abe’s most
controversial legacy. With Sunday’s vote, Abe and his allies have

Learning to love the coffee they grow
Colombia has long produced the beans. Now it’s waking up to the beauty of a quality cup.
BY A NTHONY F AIOLA
IN BOGOTA, COLOMBIA
Not so long ago, Cesar Parra’s world changed with a cup of
coffee — a freshly brewed, richly
aromatic ambrosia served at one
of this nation’s fast-multiplying
high-quality cafes.
“It came as a shock, having a
good cup,” said Parra, 47, a late-tothe-game coffee lover who spoke
on the sidelines of a master class
for baristas. “I was born and
raised in Colombia. And all my
life, I’d been drinking bad coffee.”
For decades, this South American nation harbored a dirty little
secret. In the land of Juan Valdez
and his mule, Conchita — the
fictional characters from advertisements who have hooked the
world on rich mugs of Colombian
coffee since the 1950s — it was
nearly impossible to get a good
cup of Joe.

Virginia is
on mind of
Democrats
nationwide
las vegas — The Democratic
National Committee gathered
here over the past week with one
worry on every activist’s mind:
We’d better not lose the Virginia
governor’s race.
It’s a surprising case of the jitters over a place that hasn’t elected a Republican to statewide office in eight years — and that voted
resoundingly against Donald
Trump last year. But nationally,
Democrats haven’t won a marquee race since losing the presidency. They lag behind Republicans in fundraising. A loss for Lt.
Gov. Ralph Northam against Republican Ed Gillespie on Nov. 7
could stir doubts about message
and strategy just as the party is
gearing up nationally for next
year’s all-important midterm elections.
“We’re Ground Zero,” Susan
Swecker, chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Virginia, said inside the Bally’s casino here, where
party leaders and activists from all
57 states and territories gathered
over the past few days. “All eyes are
on us. I can understand that, because last year broke my heart.”
Less clear is whether the jitters
will help — or whether a Northam
victory gives Democrats any kind
of road map for 2018. Leaders and
activists spent a lot of time in Las
Vegas talking about Nevada and
Virginia, two increasingly urban
and diverse states that bucked
2016’s Trump wave, as models for
what every state party could
achieve if they organized and elevated their activist base.
They spent less time talking
about Trump’s winning message
on jobs and fairness, or the states
where it was so effective, or how to

Each month, 72-year-old Sandra

Secretary of state praises
Saudi-Iraqi cooperation
BY
C AROL M ORELLO
doha, qatar — Secretary of
State Rex Tillerson on Sunday
urged Iranian-backed militias in
Iraq to “go home,” and warned
European companies doing business with the Revolutionary
Guard in Iran that they could face
“great risk” from sanctions.
Shiite militias mostly composed of Iraqi citizens but backed
by Iran were instrumental in
helping the Iraqi army drive the
Islamic State from Mosul and
other strongholds in Iraq. There
have been reports of Iranian advisers among them. Tillerson said
they have no business being on
the battlefield now that the Islamic State has been routed.
“Certainly, Iranian militias
that are in Iraq, now that the
fight against Daesh and ISIS is
coming to a close, those militias
need to go home,” Tillerson said
at a news conference with Saudi
Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir,
using two common acronyms for
the Islamic State. “Any foreign
fighters in Iraq need to go home,
and allow the Iraqi people to rebuild their lives with the help of
their neighbors.”
A senior U.S. official indicated
that Tillerson was referring to the
Iranian-backed popular mobilization units and the Quds Force
of the Revolutionary Guard
Corps.
“The position of the Iraqi government and the position of our
government is that there should
be a single Iraqi security force
answerable to the Iraqi state,”
said the official, speaking on the
condition of anonymity to a pool
reporter in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The ideal, he added, is that the
militia fighters either “go home or
they integrate into the Iraqi security forces.”
Iran’s broad and growing influence in the region dominated
Tillerson’s public comments Sunday, though he covered a wide
variety of issues in his talks with
Saudi officials. He hailed the budding new relationship between
Riyadh and Baghdad, saying it
could pave the way for a stronger,
independent Iraq.
ALEX BRANDON/POOL/REUTERS
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Doha with Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman
al-Thani. Tillerson is trying to revive hopes of ending an embargo on Qatar by four Arab countries.
“We do seek to support, as does
the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a
whole of Iraq, that is secure and
stable and has the ability to stand
on its own,” he said. “We believe
this will in some ways counter
some of the unproductive influences of Iran inside Iraq.”
The United States had pressed
Saudi Arabia and its partners in
the Persian Gulf for years after
the 2003 invasion of Iraq to reestablish ties with Baghdad. Riyadh
refused, saying that the situation
in post-invasion Baghdad was too
dangerous to locate an embassy
there and that it did not want to
support the Shiite-dominated
government of Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki. In recent years,
under Maliki’s Shiite successor,
Haider al-Abadi, the Saudis and
other Arab states have tried to
make up for what Jubeir on Sunday called “lost ground.”
In other remarks designed to
send a message to Tehran, Tillerson also advised European companies to avoid investing in businesses linked to the Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is involved in many parts of Iran’s
economy.
“Those who conduct business
with the Iranian Revolutionary
Guards, or any of their entities,
European companies or other
companies around the globe, really do so at great risk,” Tillerson
said.
The threat of more sanctions is
one of the most potent weapons
for undercutting Iran and the
2015 nuclear deal. The potential
for Iran to rejoin the world economy and improve its fortunes was
the main reason Tehran agreed to
limit its nuclear program in the
landmark agreement with six
world powers, including the United States. But the Trump administration is taking a more aggressive stance toward a country it
considers a malign actor in the
region, largely because of actions
not addressed in the nuclear deal.
In Riyadh, Tillerson attended
the inauguration of the SaudiIraqi Coordination Council. Abadi called the council an “important step toward enhancing relations.”
“We are facing in our region
serious challenges in the form of
extremism, terrorism, as well as
attempts to destabilize our countries,” said Saudi King Salman.
“These attempts require our full
attention.”
Tillerson praised other small
milestones in the improving relations, such as the August opening
of a border crossing and direct
flights between Riyadh and Baghdad. He said the new council can
boost cooperation in the fight
against the Islamic State and help
with the rebuilding of infrastructure in areas liberated from the
militants.
“Your growing relationship between the kingdom and Iraq is
vital to bolstering our collective
security and prosperity, and we
take great interest in it, “ Tillerson
said before the agreement establishing the council was signed.
Tillerson is trying to revive
hopes of ending an economic
embargo that four Arab countries
have imposed on Qatar since
June. Saudi Arabia, the United
Arab Emirates, Bahrain and
Egypt contend that Qatar finances terrorism, interferes in their
domestic affairs and is too friendly with Iran. Doha denies the
allegations and has accused Saudi Arabia of violating Qatari sovereignty and attempting to engineer a change of power.
“The dispute has had negative
consequences, economically and
militarily, for those involved,” Tillerson told reporters in Doha after meeting with Qatari officials.
“And certainly the United States
has felt the effects of that as well.”
“None of us can afford to let
this dispute linger,” he added,
calling on all parties to minimize
the inflammatory rhetoric.
His wish went unfulfilled. Only
minutes later, Qatari Foreign
Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, while standing
beside Tillerson at a news conference, spoke of the “so-called diplomats” from the blockading
countries. “We do not see them
make any diplomatic or mature
statements,” he said.

McConnell spurns Bannon threat
BY J OHN W AGNER
AND T ORY N EWMYER
Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday
sharply criticized former White
House chief strategist Stephen K.
Bannon and others trying to knock
off Republican incumbents, calling
them “specialists at nominating
people who lose.”
McConnell appeared on two Sunday morning talk shows and was
asked about Bannon’s efforts to find
primary opponents for all but one of
the Senate Republicans running for
reelection. McConnell argued that
the kind of candidates Bannon and
others are supporting will not have
the broad appeal needed to win general elections in some states.
“The kind of people that are supported by the element that you’ve
just been referring to are specialists
in defeating Republican candidates
in November, and that’s what this
interparty skirmish is about,” McConnell said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“Our goal is to nominate people in
the primaries next year who can
actually win” in the general election.
McConnell went on to say the
effort of Bannon and others “isn’t
going to help President Trump
achieve his agenda. He needs a Republican Senate and a Republican
House to confirm judges, to pass
legislation that is important to him
and to the country.”
Since leaving the White House in
August, Bannon has argued that
many GOP incumbents are standing in the way of Trump achieving
the nationalist agenda that swept
him into the White House. Part of
Bannon’s stated goal is to oust McConnell from his leadership post.
On Fox, McConnell was also
asked whether he thought his low
job approval numbers nationally
would be a drag on other Republican senatorial candidates and hurt
the party’s prospects of winning the
Senate.
“I’m not going to be on the ballot
in any of these states, and I don’t
think the candidates who are running need to take a position on me,”
McConnell said. “The people in
those states are interested in what
the candidates can do for them and
for the country. Trying to cook up an
issue like this is irrelevant.”
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the
Union,” McConnell played down infighting between Trump and congressional Republicans, emphasizing what he called a shared agenda
on a tax overhaul, judicial appointments and deregulation.
“I think he's getting a lot more
done than he’s giving everybody
credit for,” McConnell said of
Trump. “I think his appointments,
as I’ve said earlier, are absolutely
changing the country. The optimism about the economy is picking
up. It’s related to the people he’s put
in positions at various key places in
the federal government. It’s related
to the Supreme Court appointments and all the judges that we’re
confirming.”
McConnell said he’s “not particularly concerned” about recent criticisms the president has lodged
against the Senate GOP’s inability to
advance his priorities.

Trump pushes Senate’s budget bill
Gold Star father chides Kelly
in condolence call controversy
BY
If House Republicans
accept the plan, focus
can shift to tax cuts
BY J OHN
AND T ORY
Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who lambasted Donald
Trump at last year’s Democratic
National Convention, on Sunday
criticized the now-president’s
chief of staff for his handling of the
controversy over Trump’s military
condolence calls.
Khan said John F. Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general,
had “made the situation even
worse” by defending Trump and
joining him in attacking Rep.
Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) after
she criticized Trump’s call to the
widow of one of four service members killed in an ambush in Niger.
“Instead of advising the president that restraint and dignity is
the call of the moment, former
general Kelly indulged in defending [the] behavior of the president and made the situation even
worse,” Khan said during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
His comments came as the
White House continued its effort
to discredit Wilson, a family friend
of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of
the slain servicemen.
The president took to Twitter
on Sunday morning, again calling
Wilson “wacky” and saying she is
“the gift that keeps on giving for
the Republican Party” and “a disaster for Dems.”
“You watch her in action & vote
R!” Trump wrote about Wilson,
who has said that Trump’s call to
Johnson’s widow was so insensitive it left her in tears.
Wilson, meanwhile, on Sunday
called Kelly “a puppet of the president” and said he should apologize
for having made false claims about
her while defending Trump’s calls.
“Not only does he owe me an
apology, but he owes an apology to
the American people,” Wilson said
during an appearance on
MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” during which
she also accused Kelly of “character assassination.”
During an appearance in the
White House briefing room on
Thursday, Kelly called Wilson an
“empty barrel” and falsely asserted that she had claimed credit in a
W AGNER
N EWMYER
President Trump on Sunday
afternoon urged House Republicans on a conference call to rally
behind a Senate-passed budget
bill, touting it as the quickest way
to enact sweeping tax cuts later
this year without Democratic
support.
“We are on the verge of doing
something very, very historic,”
Trump told GOP lawmakers, adding that success on tax cuts could
provide a springboard to action
on other shared legislative priorities, according to a Republican
familiar with the call.
Following multiple failed attempts to overhaul the healthcare system, Republicans are
eager for a marquee legislative
victory and see tax overhaul as
their best shot at working with
Trump to deliver on a major
campaign promise.
During the call, Trump and
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (RWis.) argued that passing the
revised Senate budget this week
provides the best shot to get a tax
bill enacted by the end of the year,
according to participants.
Republican leaders argued
that is the better alternative at
this point to negotiating with the
Senate to resolve differences with
the House’s fiscal blueprint.
Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.),
chairman of the House Budget
Committee, said passage of the
Senate budget could occur this
week.
Such a move “may save as
many as 10 or 12 legislative days,”
Mick Mulvaney, director of the
Office of Management and Budget, said during an appearance
earlier Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.” He called that prospect a
“big deal.”
In a bid to build momentum for
taking that course, Trump and
JABIN BOTSFORD/THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump told House Republicans, “We are on the verge of doing something very, very historic.”
Vice President Pence joined the
House GOP call.
A senior administration official familiar with the call said
Trump spoke for about 10 minutes and delivered what amounted to a pep talk, “cheering everyone on.”
The budget adopted by the
Senate will allow the Republicanled chamber to pass a tax bill
through the “reconciliation”
process, which prevents Democrats from mounting a filibuster
against the legislation. That
would allow passage with 50
votes instead of the 60 needed to
cut off a filibuster. There are 52
Republicans in the chamber.
Even so, Trump expressed hope
that a tax bill would attract some
Democratic votes, said the administration official, who spoke
on the condition of anonymity to
describe a call that was not open
to reporters.
The official said Trump also
said action on the tax bill could
lead to other victories, including
promised legislation to spur
$1 trillion in investment in the
nation’s roads and other infrastructure, as well as welfare
changes.
He also said passage of the tax
bill would set Republicans up
well for the 2018 midterm elections, the official said.
Significant differences between the House and Senate blueprints could have presented a
stumbling block. Most notably,
the House version authorized a
tax overhaul that does not add to
the deficit, while the Senate
approach increases the deficit by
$1.5 trillion over 10 years. But
most conservative hard-liners in
the House, a group that has raised
concerns in the past about deficit
spending, appeared to be inclined
to accept the Senate version in the
interest of accelerating work on a
tax overhaul.
The actual writing and selling
of a bill still poses significant
challenges in the coming weeks,
however. Even with the wiggle
room that the Senate budget gives
lawmakers to add to the deficit,
Republicans need to find massive
amounts of new revenue. That’s
because their tax-cutting wish list
tips the scales at an estimated
$5 trillion.

Cub Scout barred after
grilling state senator
Spencer sues college
over rejected speech
A Cub Scout was kicked out of
his den after he questioned a
Colorado state lawmaker about
her position on gun control and
about controversial comments
she made on African Americans’
health.
It was the latest political flash
point for the Boy Scouts after
President Trump used his speech
at the organization’s national
jamboree in July to rail against
“fake news” and former
president Barack Obama and to
boast about beating Democrat
Hillary Clinton.
Ames Mayfield, 11, posed the
questions at an Oct. 9 event in
Broomfield. Cub Scouts had been
told to come prepared to talk to
state Sen. Vicki Marble (R) about
issues important to them.
Ames’s mother, Lori Mayfield,
said a local Scout leader later told
her that the topic of gun control
was inappropriate because of its
political nature and that the boy’s
questions were disrespectful.
The Boy Scouts, which
includes the Cub Scouts, refused
to comment Friday on why the
boy was asked to leave but said
he will remain in Scouting after
finding a new group.
Cub Scouts is for children in
first through fifth grades. They
meet in groups from the same
grade called dens, which are part
of larger packs.
Ames was kicked out of his den
but not the larger pack. Since the
other available den in the pack
meets while he attends classes,
he will instead join a den in a
new pack at his church, his
mother said.
The leaders of the group that
kicked Ames out did not return
phone messages and emails left
by the Associated Press.
In a statement Friday, Marble
said she did not know about
Ames’s dismissal until she read
about it. She said she did not
blame him, because she thought
there was an “element of
manipulation involved” by his
mother.
Mayfield denies that. She said
she and her son, whom she said is
gifted and likes to watch the
news, researched Marble
together, and she typed up his
questions using his words.
An associate and organizer of
campus tours for white
nationalist Richard Spencer sued
Ohio State University in federal
court Sunday after school officials
refused to rent campus space for
Spencer to speak.
The lawsuit comes after a
university attorney sent a letter
Friday to Cameron Padgett, a
Spencer associate and Georgia
State University graduate student,
that said that while the school
“values freedom of speech,” the
— Associated Press
request to rent space for Spencer
represents a “substantial risk to
public safety.”
Columbus attorney Michael
Carpenter wrote that the decision
was made after university
officials conferred with law
enforcement authorities and
considered the arrests,
skirmishes and gunfire that
occurred around Spencer’s
speech Thursday at the University
of Florida. Security costs for the
event have been estimated at
$600,000. Counterprotesters far
outnumbered Spencer supporters
and mostly drowned out his
speech in Gainesville.

other. Asked Sunday about a New
York Times report that Republicans are considering capping
what workers can contribute taxfree to their 401(k) retirement
accounts, Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) demurred. “We’re just beginning the
process of actually crafting the
bills,” he said in an appearance on
CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It’s
way too early to predict the various details.”
Nevertheless, congressional
Republicans are eyeing an aggressive schedule for moving a
tax package. House Republicans
are aiming to unveil, amend and
pass a bill by mid-November.
In addition to joining the conference call, Trump penned an
editorial published in USA Today
on Sunday — the 31st anniversary
of the last major overhaul of the
tax code, he noted. He said that it
is imperative “to ignite America’s
middle class miracle once again.”
Trump is also set to press the
point in person when he joins
Senate Republicans on Tuesday
for their weekly lunch at the
Capitol.

2015 speech for securing funding
for a federal building. Wilson instead had pushed legislation to
name the building after two slain
FBI agents.
During her Sunday interview, in
which she was asked about
Trump’s repeated characterization
of her as “wacky,” Wilson said,
“That’s the way he is. I’m sick of
him giving people nicknames.”
She was also critical of the lack
of information from the Trump
administration about the ambush
and particularly the circumstances surrounding the death of
Johnson, who had been separated
from the rest of the group and
whose body was not recovered for
48 hours.
“This is a catastrophe,” Wilson
said. “We had four soldiers who
died. They have been buried. And
we need to know why.”
During his appearance on CBS,
Khan stuck up for Wilson, saying,
“Our political leaders, elected by
the people, are deserving of equal
dignity and equal respect instead
of being maligned on misstated
facts.”
Khan, who is promoting a new
book, also criticized Kelly’s handling of Trump’s response to a
deadly melee in Charlottesville at
a gathering organized by white
supremacists in August.
“I was shocked — I was shocked
— to see citizen Kelly standing
next to the president when . . . the
president could not have the proper words to condemn the attack on
the blessed city of Charlottesville,
Virginia, by neo-Nazis,” said Khan,
a resident of Charlottesville.
Khan’s son Humayun Khan was
killed in Iraq in 2004. While
speaking at the Democratic convention last year, the elder Khan
challenged Trump, at one point
saying, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.” He also held up a
pocket-size copy of the Constitution, asking if Trump had read it.
Kelly is also a Gold Star father.
He lost a son, Robert M. Kelly, in
Afghanistan seven years ago.

Trump aiming for retroactive mandate relief in health bill
BY J ULIET E ILPERIN
AND S EAN S ULLIVAN
The White House signaled to
Senate Republican negotiators
Friday that it wants a bipartisan
health-care bill to include retroactive relief this year for individuals
and employers subject to the Affordable Care Act’s insurance
mandate, according to individuals briefed on the matter, a request
that is sure to anger Democrats.
Key White House officials are
seeking a rightward shift in the
proposal crafted by Sens. Lamar
Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.), which
would restore subsidies to help
offset out-of-pocket costs for lowincome Americans buying ACA
plans in exchange for further flexibility in how states regulate health
coverage.
The individuals briefed on
what the White House privately
signaled to Senate Republicans
spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe closed-door
talks that had not been announced publicly. They said that
nothing was final and that the
negotiations were ongoing and
could change rapidly.
While the moves were part of
what could become a more extended negotiation, the White
House requests — which also include providing states with broader leeway — could derail the carefully crafted bipartisan package
unveiled this week.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell (R-Ky.) said Sunday
that he is ready to move a bipartisan health-care bill but first needs
clarity from President Trump on
what he is willing to sign.
“What I’m waiting is to hear
from President Trump what kind
of health-care bill he might sign,”
McConnell said in an interview on
CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I
think he hasn’t made a final decision. When he does, and I know
that we’re not just debating it, but
actually passing something to be
signed, I would be happy to bring
it up.”
The move to suspend federal
enforcement of the insurance
mandates is anathema to Democrats, who view the requirements
as integral to the law’s success. All
taxpayers must now provide proof
of insurance coverage or face a
penalty. The current fine is $695
per adult and $347.50 per child —
up to $2,085 per family — or
2.5 percent of family income,
whichever is greater. Employers
with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees that do not offer
coverage face a fine of about $188
per month for every full-time employee they have beyond the number 30. These businesses also face
fines if federal officials determine
that the plans they offer are unaffordable or provide inadequate
coverage.
The White House is also interested in adding language to expand “association health plans,” a
kind of insurance in which small
businesses of a similar type band
together as a group to negotiate
health benefits. These plans have
had to meet ACA coverage requirements, but the president has
sought to use his authority to exempt them from those rules and
allow these plans to be sold across
state lines without separate insurance licenses.
The White House declined to
comment immediately.
In a statement, Alexander said:
“This is the normal legislative
process with people of different
views saying what they are for and
against. Something close to the
Alexander-Murray proposal is
likely to become law this year
because the President himself
asked us to develop this shortterm solution so people aren’t
hurt by a chaotic insurance market.”
Senate
Minority
Leader
Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.)
said in a statement: “The administration was involved in the
Alexander-Murray negotiations
every step of the way. There is a
broad bipartisan agreement that
can pass the Senate right now. The
administration should support it
instead of floating other ideas that
would further the sabotage both
parties are trying to reverse.”
Insurers have described the
mandates as critical to ensuring
that enough healthy people buy
coverage, which in turn translates
into a broader risk pool. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that repealing the individual mandate this year would mean
15 million fewer insured Americans by 2026, though several experts have questioned whether
this requirement provides as powerful an incentive to sign up as the
CBO has consistently estimated.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, 6.5 million taxpayers paid $3 billion in ACA penalties for not having insurance in
2016.
Larry Levitt, vice president for
special initiatives at the Kaiser
Family Foundation, said in an interview that while it is “hard to
tease out how much of an effect
the individual mandate has had”
on coverage, removing it even for
a year could prompt some insurers to exit the ACA market.
“This would be a classic poison
pill,” Levitt said.
While Trump signed an executive order his first day in office
instructing federal agencies to
provide Americans with ACA relief, the IRS informed tax professionals this week that they need to
provide proof of insurance with
tax returns filed for 2017.
“The 2018 filing season will be
the first time the IRS will not
accept tax returns that omit this
information,” the IRS announced
in its notice Tuesday.
Trump has sent mixed signals
about the substance of the Alexander-Murray plan, which was released Tuesday. He seemed to embrace it at first, then backed away.
In general, he has seemed supportive of trying to come up with a
bipartisan deal of some kind.
Senate Democrats have been
pushing their Republican counterparts to bring the plan as it was
released Tuesday to the Senate
floor for a vote. But GOP leaders
have declined to commit to doing
so.
Trump ended the Cost Sharing
Reduction subsidy payments,
known as CSRs, arguing that they
were funded illegally. But he appears open to Congress passing a
measure to appropriating funding for them — provided Republicans get adequate concessions
from Democrats. The payments,
which cover roughly 7 million consumers, would cost taxpayers
about $7 billion in 2017 if they
were funded through the end of
the year.
The bipartisan measure won
new support Thursday, giving it 12
Democratic senators and 12 Republican senators as sponsors.
But it remains far from clear
that Alexander and Murray will be
able to hash out a compromise
that can win the support of most
Republicans. With majority support from his own ranks, Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
(R-Ky.) will not bring the bill up for
a vote, Republicans close to the
process predicted.
At the same time that the administration is negotiating with
lawmakers, it is defending in federal court its decision to cut off the
CSR payments. Attorneys general
for 18 states and the District of
Columbia are seeking a temporary restraining order in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern
District of California that would
force the federal government to
continue making the payments.
In a brief filed Friday, acting
assistant attorney general Chad
Readler filed a motion asking for
the court to reject the plaintiffs’
motion for preliminary relief, saying their claims “have not demonstrated an imminent risk of irreparable harm” from the cutoff in
payments and the public interest
weighs “heavily against a judicial
decree mandating the expenditure of hundreds of millions of
dollars in unappropriated taxpayer dollars every month.”
On Saturday a coalition of 29
state and national consumer
groups, led by Families USA and
the National Health Law Program, filed an amicus brief in
support of the plaintiffs.
The state attorneys general,
meanwhile, argued that the halt
in subsidies “has caused health
insurance premiums across the
country to skyrocket, in some cases by as much as 30% . . . Many will
be unable to afford the higher
insurance, and will abandon the
health insurance market altogether. That will harm not only the
States’ residents but the States
themselves, which will be forced
to spend billions more on health
care costs when these uninsured
residents seek emergency care at
State-funded facilities.”
Lawyers for both sides will argue the case before U.S. District
Judge Vince Chhabria in a hearing
Monday.

Hotel brand’s debut in Mississippi Delta shows Trump Organization’s new strategy
HOTELS FROM A1
Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, bestowed a singular distinction
upon Cleveland, population
12,000, and two nearby towns. It
announced it would debut two
new hotel brands here, beginning
with a four-star, 100-room Scion
hotel originally designed to replicate an antebellum plantation.
In a partnership with local
owners, the company said it
would reopen two Comfort Inns
and a Rodeway Inn after bringing
them up to Trump standards and
use the properties to launch its
newest brand, known as “American Idea.”
It is nearly unheard of for a
national hotel company to debut
hotel lines in one of America’s
poorest corners, surrounded by
cotton and soybean fields and
lacking a commercial airport or
even an easily accessed interstate.
But the plan offers the first
glimpse into how Trump’s sons
will steer the company while he is
in the White House. The Trump
Organization is planning dozens
of locations “designed to work in
every city U.S.A.,” said company
spokeswoman Christine Da Silva.
It’s the company’s first appeal to
middle America, the core of
Trump’s political base.
Expansion of the Trump brand
ratchets up the ethical implications for the president, who
maintains his financial stake in
the company he founded. The
expansion could involve partnerships, new investors and local
government approvals posing potential conflicts of interest. The
Scion project, for example, is
already slated to receive city and
county tax breaks over seven
years.
The deals could test the country’s acceptance of a complex
business divestiture that Trump
announced earlier this year, in
which he defers profits but maintains his financial stake in the
Trump Organization. Ethics experts quickly criticized the divestiture, and a federal lawsuit alleges that it violates an obscure
constitutional provision known
as the emoluments clause.
The president’s explosive Twitter forays into racial issues — like
the violent white supremacist
demonstrations in Charlottesville, and the NFL kneeling controversy — also have begun to
shade how Mississippi residents
view the expansion. The Scion
hotel is designed to take advantage of the Delta as a growing
destination for blues enthusiasts,
a plan that some black residents
view as Trump’s effort to monetize the threadbare music invented by slaves in the Mississippi cotton fields.
“It shows he really doesn’t have
a conscience. It’s about money,”
Rep. Bennie Thompson (DMiss.), who is black and represents the area, said in a phone
interview.
The president has said he does
not defend white supremacy and
his comments about the NFL
were not about race.
Ellis Turnage, a black attorney
and Democrat who has represented black residents of Cleveland in voting rights lawsuits,

said he thinks acceptance of the
Trump hotels will hinge on
whether economic arguments
prevail over political ones.
“People are looking for something that’s going to raise Mississippi up off the bottom,” he said.
Turnage said he does not have
a single friend who admits to
voting for Trump. But when it
comes to the new hotels, he said,
“I don’t see that as an issue. I
mean, Cleveland needs hotels.”
A ‘big thing’ for Mississippi
Economic revival has long
been challenging in Bolivar
County, home to Cleveland,
where 53.3 percent of children
live in poverty, according to 2015
census data. Fifty nine percent of
households make less than
$35,000 a year, and the region
has barely recovered from the
recession and the closures of
factories that once produced ceramic tiles and auto parts.
But the area has a selling point
that the state of Mississippi has
seized upon as a marketing slogan, now emblazoned on license
plates and highway signs: “Birthplace of America’s Music.”
Assorted museums and clubs
along Highway 61, “the Blues
Highway,” tout the names of state
natives and blues originators B.B.
King, John Lee Hooker and others. Last year, the local economy
got a $20 million jolt with the
opening of a Grammy museum in
Cleveland, the first outside of Los
Angeles and just down the street
from the Trumps’ Scion.
In its first 17 months, the
Grammy museum attracted
55,000 visitors, beating expectations, and welcomed 8,000 students for educational programming. The museum attracts big
names for its events, like a recent
show on the front lawn featuring
Grammy Award winners Bobby
Rush, Charlie Musselwhite and
Frayser Boy.
Cleveland also boasts a hospital and a 3,300-student university, Delta State, home of the
Delta Music Institute, which
teaches the creative and business
areas of music.
“I think the blues is beginning
to play a lot bigger role in the
economic development of this
area,” Tricia Walker, who heads
the institute, said. “Just like
Nashville realized decades ago
that country music was a great
economic driver for their city,
same thing with Mississippi and
Bolivar County.”
A 2014 economic analysis
stressed the need for more hotels
to accommodate Delta State’s
homecoming weekend, blues festivals and Grammy events.
Trump’s company was not the
only one interested in tapping
into the market — another firm
plans to break ground later this
year on a high-end hotel along
the downtown strip.
Judson Thigpen, executive director of the Cleveland-Bolivar
County Chamber of Commerce,
said the city has only about 280
rooms, less than what was needed
for a recent baseball tournament
that forced visitors to search for
rooms a half mile away. “That’s
money that we’re not getting in
the town because we don’t have
the capacity,” he said.
Local entrepreneurs Dinesh
and Suresh Chawla now run a
successful chain of midrange hotels, which they took over from
their father, an Indian immigrant. Thirty years ago, V.K.
Chawla called New York magnate
Donald Trump out of the blue in
search of investors. He received
no money but lots of advice.
“Mr. Trump proceeded to explain to my father how to get the
small-fry project off the ground,”
Suresh Chawla said in June. “It’s
an incredible testimony to how
he can listen to something and in
just a few seconds dissect it and
come to what needs to be done.”
When his father was running
for president, Donald Trump Jr.
met the Chawla sons at a Republican fundraiser in Jackson, introduced by Gov. Phil Bryant.
Afterward, Suresh Chawla donated $50,000 to Republican
candidates, including $27,700 to
the Trump campaign. Eric Danziger, chief executive of Trump
Hotels and an industry veteran,
began considering the Cleveland
project among a couple dozen
nationwide for the company’s
first Scion.
In June, the Chawlas joined
Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump
at Trump Tower to announce the
Mississippi venture. The deal was
pitched as a breakthrough for a
state often ranked dead last as a
place to work or go to school.
“This is a big thing for Mississippi. We’re usually 50th in every
list there is,” Suresh Chawla said
at the announcement.
Since then, the press has not
been kind, particularly a Bloomberg story associating the Mississippi projects with a failed development, Trump Farallon Estates
at Cap Cana, in the Dominican
Republic.
“We are very hesitant to work
with reporters at this point —
everything we say, explain, do —
is taken out of context,” Dinesh
Chawla wrote in an email. “It’s
frustrating that we seem to be
used as pawns in a game.” He and
his brother declined further
comment.
Construction on the Scion hotel paused late this summer as the
Chawlas reconsidered the original plantation design, a decision
they haven’t addressed publicly.
They came up with a new plan
that will incorporate more restaurants, a clubhouse and convention space, according to the
Trump Organization. In mid-September windows and siding on
the main building had been added, and furniture was being delivered, but construction hadn’t restarted.
According to the Trump Organization, the American Idea
brands will launch at the three
older Chawla-owned mid-scale
hotels in the area. Bolivar County
Supervisor Donny Whitten said
the hotels “a lot of times are
running at 90 to 100 percent
occupancy” because of crowded
university and music events.
Two are Comfort Inns, in
Cleveland and Clarksdale, on the
side of the highway and surrounded by strip malls and gas
stations. The third is a Rodeway
Inn in Greenville, across the
street from the Trop Casino and
separated by a levee where local
residents take power walks. The
area nearby is pockmarked with
empty and boarded-up buildings.
“I don’t support [Trump]. I
wouldn’t go to his hotel unless I
had to. But I don’t blame other
people if they do,” said Shanna
Ray, 31, a medical lab technician
on a stop during her walk.
Prospects for success
Skepticism remains that the
hotels will succeed financially,
particularly if blacks avoid them.
Bolivar County is 64 percent
black, and the railroad tracks that
cut through the center of Cleveland, despite being out of use and
mostly buried, still separate the
more prosperous white areas
from black neighborhoods.
Thomas Morris Sr., a local pastor active in the black community, said he would advise people to
stay elsewhere. “Your choice will
depend on how principled you
are,” he said.
“I think if the Trumps’ bottomline profits for a hotel in the
Mississippi Delta are predicated
on black people coming and
spending money, I think they are
in serious trouble,” said Rep.
Thompson.
Some of the plans may yet get
tripped up in the heated litigation and ethical controversies
surrounding the Trump Organization. For instance, the Chawlas
have repeatedly expressed interest in having music students from
Delta State produce or perform
shows at the hotel.
But attorneys general from
Maryland and the District of
Columbia
have
challenged
Trump in one pending emoluments lawsuit, and some legal
scholars say benefiting from a
publicly funded university qualifies as a violation.
Don Allan Mitchell, chair of
languages and literature at Delta
State, calls the hotels “one of
those opportunities that I’m not
sure we could pass up but at the
same time it does bring with it the
political baggage.”
He said he hoped the politics
wouldn’t destroy something
Cleveland needs.
“We’re enough of a community
where we can have this civil
conversation,” he said. “We can
agree to disagree without screaming at one another. Or getting on
Twitter.”
Brown, the local bluesman,
spends his days fixing car upholstery in a workshop that is a
hodgepodge of instruments and
dismantled car seats.
He says he does not support
Trump personally. His allegiance
is to the music he and his band,
Jake and the Pearl Street Jumpers, have played since the 1970s.
“I feel good about [the hotel],”
he said. “It will bring a lot of
attention to the blues.”

DEMOCRATS FROM A1
win in those places with a sales

“From a branding perspective,
we have a huge problem,” said Ken
Martin, the chairman of Minnesota’s Democratic Farmer-Labor
Party. “It was the biggest challenge
for us in the last year — and our
biggest mistake was uniting
around ‘Stop Trump.’ ”
Defeat in Virginia could also

progressive activists and the party’s establishment. Northam,
backed by most of Virginia’s elected Democrats, won his nomination

had once again bet against progressives and lost. It would set the
stage for more infighting in 2018.
Ideology aside, most party leaders seemed bent on avoiding in
Virginia the kind of overconfidence they say settled in near the
end in 2016, when many Democrats assumed that Clinton would
win the presidency.
“That sense of complacency led
people to take their foot off the
gas,” Martin said. “We saw a dip in
volunteers in the last few weeks,
turnout dropped. That can’t ever
happen again.”
Perez went further, rebuking
Democrats who believe Virginia is
now solidly, safely, permanently
blue after years of population
growth in the diverse suburbs of
Washington. “I hear ‘demographics is destiny’ and it’s nails on a
chalkboard to me,” the DNC chairman said at a session here over the
weekend. “Demographics is not
destiny. Organizing is destiny.”
Northam, a former Army doctor and pediatric neurologist, is in
a neck-and-neck race with
Gillespie, a former lobbyist and
GOP strategist. There are a number of reasons to wonder whether
Democrats can retain the executive mansion, which Terry McAu-
liffe now occupies.
The DNC began pouring resources into Virginia in July,
spending $1.5 million up front to
hire 40 staff members. In addition,
national staff members were lent
out to run communications for
campaigns down the ballot. The
party paid for direct mail to nonwhite voters. DNC Hispanic Media Director Francisco Pelayo and
party operative Andrea Peoples
were tasked with outreach to Latino and black female voters.
But they’re doing it with less
money than the Republican National Committee. The DNC raised
$4.4 million in August and spent
slightly more money than it took
in. As of last month, its debt —
$4.1 million — was almost twice the
size of its cash reserves. The RNC,
meanwhile, reported $45.9 million
in the bank and no debt. With less
fanfare than the DNC, it has spent
$3 million in Virginia, helping fund
80 staff members on the ground for
Republican campaigns.
“The RNC never left Virginia
and has had field staff on the
ground since 2013,” said RNC
spokesman Michael Ahrens.
The Northam-Gillespie race
has heated up in the last month, as
Gillespie, who once urged his party to moderate on immigration,
launched half a dozen TV and
radio ads warning that Northam
would leave Virginia vulnerable to
the Central American gang MS-13
by refusing to ban “sanctuary cities” with policies of protecting illegal immigrants and not cooperating with federal authorities to deport them. (Virginia does not have
sanctuary cities.)
Democrats have jumped at the
chance to link Gillespie with
Trump.
“We’ve got an opponent who’s
running a Donald Trump-style
campaign,” Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.)
said in a video message to the
gathering in Las Vegas.
“We’ve watched a Republican
nominee for governor run racially
tinged ads that play on our fears,”
said former attorney general Eric
H. Holder Jr. Former president
Barack Obama delivered a similar
critique of Gillespie at a Northam
rally in Richmond last week.
But the party’s broader strategy
for winning in states Trump won
has been less of a focus.
STEVE HELBER/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D), left, and Ed Gillespie (R) are in a close contest in Virginia, one of two states with a November governor’s race.
Democrats believe Trump
would have lost the White House
last year had he not stolen the
mantle of populism, a traditionally
Democratic message. But there
was not much soul-searching
about messaging among those who
convened in Las Vegas. There was
no debate about the “identity politics” that the party’s critics accused
them of embracing in 2016 and
little discussion of how to communicate differently in the states that
supported Trump last year.
Instead, party leaders focused
heavily on organizing and engaging the base.
The DNC, for instance, is looking at Virginia and New Jersey, the
other state with a governor’s race
next month, to test new voter outreach technology. In an interview,
DNC Chief Technology Officer
Raffi Krikorian said the party had
FRED DOES:
deployed Facebook messenger
bots, texts to likely voters and tactics for encouraging volunteers to
turn their own social-media contacts into voters.
“My team’s focus is on how we
get tools in the hands of activists
and state parties,” Krikorkian
said. “We’re seeing if we can leverage friends effectively. Instead of
doing canvassing on a geographic
basis, what if we start with your
circle of friends?”
The year so far has frustrated
Democrats trying to turn Trump’s
high disapproval ratings, and the
burning energy of political activists, into votes. Democrats have
over-performed in a series of special legislative races. And the DNC
is helping Washington Democrats
ahead of a Nov. 7 special election
that could flip the state’s Senate
from red to blue. But the invest-
ments haven’t yet paid off with
victories. The DNC spent $2 million and hired 10 staff members to
boost Jon Ossoff’s campaign for a
House seat in suburban Atlanta —
a historically expensive race that
Republicans ended up winning.
In interviews, state party leaders said they have spent the year
rebuilding. Jane Kleeb, the chairwoman of Nebraska’s Democrats,
assembled a list of the state’s Democratic officeholders because
none existed. Stephen Webber, the
chairman of Missouri’s Democrats, told a Midwestern caucus
meeting that his party had developed a message for rural counties
“where we used to win 60 percent
of the vote and now barely win 15
percent” — a populist campaign
against corporate farming conglomerates.
An additional challenge as 2018
approaches is keeping the battles
inside the party at bay.
In Las Vegas, some Democrats
remained committed to those battles. For the first two days of a
four-day meeting, much of the
news coverage focused on a conflict over the list of the party’s
at-large membership, which included several lobbyists; at a Friday meeting, the resolutions committee put the party on record
against any donations from people who represent corporate interests that the party opposes.
But for most Democrats, the
best way to stave off another
round of infighting is to win.
Said Holder: “Now is not a time
for our party to be beholden to
ideological litmus tests. We’re held
together by common interests.”

Ethnic strife in Ethiopia threatens a key U.S. ally
Hundreds have been killed and thousands displaced in rural areas during weeks of fighting between ethnic Oromos and Somalis
BY
P AUL S CHEMM
adama, ethiopia — A largely
hidden war in remote areas of
Ethiopia has killed hundreds of
people, displaced more than
100,000 others and raised the
specter of ethnic cleansing, potentially destabilizing an important U.S. partner in the fight
against terrorism.
With the strongest army in the
Horn of Africa and second-largest population on the continent,
Ethiopia has been a major ally in
battling regional terrorist groups
such as al-Shabab and a pillar of
stability between two disintegrating states, South Sudan and
Somalia.
But that hard-earned reputation has been thrown in doubt by
weeks of fighting between rival
ethnic groups in Ethiopia’s
neighboring Oromia and Somali
regions and by accompanying
reports of massacres and expulsions.
“They started to burn our
houses, the Liyu police,” said
Mohammed Nur Jamal of the
Oromo ethnic group, referring to
a paramilitary force from the
neighboring Somali region. With
several dozen others, Jamal, a
portly middle-aged man who
wears an embroidered Muslim
cap, now lives in a makeshift
camp near the Oromo city of
Adama. The camp is one of
dozens that have sprung up to
house those who have fled their
homes.
“We lived like brothers and
sisters for many years,” Jamal
said. “We never fought like this.
We even married together and
owned properties together.”
Local media say at least
150,000 Oromos have been expelled from the Somali region
and are living in camps. The
federal government has declined
to give exact figures, pending an
investigation, but admitted that
“hundreds” have died.
The U.S. Embassy in Addis
Ababa said in a Sept. 19 statement that it was “disturbed by
the troubling reports of ethnic
violence and the large-scale displacement of people living along
the border between the Oromia
and Somali regions.” It called for
an investigation into which
groups were behind the violence.
Ethiopia, long a centralized
state, is made up of at least 80
different ethnic groups. Under
an emperor and later a communist regime, it presented itself as
a unified Amharic-speaking nation, with little attention paid to
different ethnic groups with
their own languages and histories.
In an attempt to recognize the
aspirations of the country’s main
ethnic groups, the rebel movement of Tigrayan ethnicity that
overthrew the communist regime in 1991 reorganized Ethiopia into a federal state made up
of nine ethnically defined regions with a degree of autonomy.
Two of those regions appear to
be at war with each other. The
nearly 1,000-mile border between the mainly agricultural
Oromia region and the more arid
Somali region has historically
been the scene of minor conflicts
over resources. But those ten-

sions have exploded since September with allegations that regional security forces are involved, especially the Somali region’s
paramilitary
“Liyu”
(special) police.
Jamal, who had lived among
the Somalis for 15 years, said the
attacks took him by surprise.
“There was hate, but it was
hidden. They didn’t show it for
many years because they were
afraid of the federal government,” he said.
“Only Oromos are being targeted,” said Jaafar Mohammed,
who spent 20 of his 25 years
among the Somalis. “There are
many other ethnic groups there
— Somalis, Gurages, Amharas
and others. But they targeted
Oromos. It’s a puzzle for us.”
Mohammed said that gangs
attacked the Oromos and that he
saw at least 20 people killed. He
said he was hidden by a fellow
Oromo at a local bank until he
was able to sneak away to a camp
close to a military base. He and
other fleeing Oromos stayed
there for a few days before trucks
came to take them away. Even
then, people hurled objects and
insults at the trucks, and the
Somali regional police stole the
Oromos’ cellphones, people in
the camp said.
“I would never return to the
Somali region,” said Abdel Jabbar Ahmed, who fled with his
family. “I am filled with tears
when I try to recall what happened there. . . . A lot of people
are hiding right now.”
Clashes and unrest were reported as far back as March and

stem from dissatisfaction over a
2004 referendum that set the
border. Over the past few
months, several meetings brokered by the government were
held with officials from both
regions to resolve differences.
The strife is often linked to the
competition for resources and
arable land, especially with
much of the Somali region in the
grip of a severe drought.
On Sept. 11, violence flared
again after two Oromo officials
arrested by Somali regional police turned up dead. In the ensuing Oromo protests, several Somalis were killed, sparking the
widespread eviction of Oromos
from Somali lands in retaliation.
Government spokesman Negeri Lencho said that those behind the violence would be prosecuted and that federal forces
have been dispatched to restore
peace.
Although the regional governments have pledged to return
people to their homes, the dis-
placed in Adama said they were
being encouraged to find relatives to live with in the Oromia
region.
For now, they are housed in an
unused office complex near the
municipal headquarters on the
edge of the city, where they sleep
in bare rooms on thin foam
mattresses surrounded by their
belongings. At least half the
camp’s several dozen residents
are children. In other camps for
the displaced across the country,
thousands are being sheltered in
converted warehouses.
Most of the displaced here
arrived on trucks after a harrowing journey from the town of Tog
Wajale in the Somali region, near
the border with Somalia, where
they said neighbors they had
known for years suddenly turned
on them. Police went house to
house and ordered all ethnic
Oromos to leave as retaliation for
the deaths of Somalis in the
Oromia region.
Amid the hostilities, the rival
ethnic groups have accused each
other of links to terrorism.
The central government’s perceived passivity in the face of the
Oromos’ suffering has alienated
the community’s politicians, said
Fekadu Adugna, an expert on
ethnicity and identity at Addis
Ababa University. The region is
just recovering from a year and a
half of anti-government protests
in which 1,000 people were killed
by security forces.
A recently lifted 10-month
state of emergency restored calm
to the Oromia region. But new
demonstrations have broken out
in the wake of the border clashes.
On Oct. 11, security forces killed
six protesters and wounded dozens.
“What the conflict is doing is
increasing the mistrust between
the political parties” from the
different ethnic regions that
make up the ruling coalition,
Adugna said. “That mistrust can
be a serious threat for the federal
arrangement.”
On Sunday, Parliament Speaker Abadula Gammada — a former
president of the Oromia region
and defense minister who once
was one of the government’s
most prominent Oromo allies —
announced his resignation, saying his people and party have
been “disrespected.”
In the Somali region, Abdi
Mohammad Omar, the regional
president, is a staunch ally of the
central government. And his
Liyu police — aside from often
being cited for human rights
violations — have been effective
in stamping out a rebel movement in the region.
Many Ethiopians increasingly
fear that these conflicts show the
federal government is unable to
control regional rivalries in this
diverse country.
“No healthy country allows a
mass displacement of this magnitude in the presence of a
capable government,” said Assefa Fiseha, an expert on Ethiopian
politics at Addis Ababa University. “What we have is rivalry
among ethno-nationalist leaders
who think the center is weaker
than ever.”
paul.schemm@washpost.com
milan — The presidents of
Italy’s wealthy northern regions
of Veneto and Lombardy on
Sunday claimed victory in autonomy referendums that seek
to grab additional powers and
tax revenue from Rome, riding a
global tide of self-determination that has swamped Spain’s
Catalonia region.
Although the twin referendums are nonbinding, a resounding yes vote would give
the presidents of the neighboring regions more leverage in
negotiations with Italy’s central
government.
As leading members of the
anti-migrant, anti-E.U. Northern League, they want to keep
more tax revenue and have
autonomy over such policy areas as immigration, security,
education and the environment.
“This is the big bang of
institutional reform,” Veneto
President Luca Zaia said in
Venice. “We are convinced, and
I hope Rome understands, that
this is not the wish of a political
party. These are the wishes of
the people.”
In Milan, his counterpart in
Lombardy, Roberto Maroni,
said that with the votes, the
regions “can unify our forces so
we can do the battle of the
century.”
The leaders say they will
meet with their regional councils to finalize their requests
before going to Rome to meet
with Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
Unlike in Catalonia, the referendums do not seek independence and were approved by
Italy’s constitutional court.
Still, the autonomy drive is a
powerful threat to Rome’s authority. Together, Veneto and
Lombardy account for 30 percent of Italy’s gross domestic
product and nearly one-quarter
of the nation’s electorate.
Maroni said an overwhelming 95 percent of his region
voted yes, with turnout above
40 percent of Lombardy’s 8 million voters. That far exceeded
the bar for success that he set at
34 percent, which was the turnout for a 2001 national referendum on constitutional reform.
Independence-minded Veneto easily met a turnout threshold set by Zaia, with 60 percent
of the region’s 4 million voters
casting ballots. According to
early returns, 98 percent voted
yes.
The Democratic Party, which
leads the national government
in Rome, had criticized the
referendums, saying the nonbinding votes carried no legal
weight, were not needed to
trigger autonomy negotiations
and were a costly waste of
resources.
Such arguments played into
the hands of the yes campaigners, who consider those putdowns to be evidence of antidemocratic, centrist decisionmaking in Rome.

WHO chief revokes

The head of the World Health

Security officials man a checkpoint Sunday in Kandahar, Afghanistan, after one of the year’s bloodiest weeks.
Safety concerns spike in Afghanistan
BY A NTONIO O LIVO
AND S AYED S ALAHUDDIN
kabul — Worried about eroding
security, elected officials in Afghanistan sought answers this
weekend from President Ashraf
Ghani’s administration, asking
why more was not done to prevent
suicide attacks that have killed
nearly 200 people in one of the
bloodiest weeks of the year.
“The president gives lectures,
and his advisers and ministers are
clapping for him,” Saleh Mohammad Saljoqi, a member of parliament from the western province
of Herat, said during a Saturday
evening session with security officials, according to local news reports.
“Alas, they should see what is
going on in this country,” he said.
In the past week, Taliban suicide bombers in Humvees broke
through security checkpoints at
police and military compounds,
allowing fighters to storm the
gates in commando-style raids
that, in one case, nearly wiped out
all 60 Afghan National Army soldiers based in a post in the southwestern province of Kandahar. In
that attack, 43 soldiers died and
nine were wounded.
Other attacks included the
bombing of a Shiite mosque in
Kabul that killed 54 people and
injured 55, and a rocket attack on
the NATO compound inside the
city’s fortified Green Zone that
caused no injuries.
Earlier in the week, several attempts at suicide attacks in the
city were foiled when officials arrested three people driving in
trucks loaded with explosives.
Some elected officials accused
Pakistan, which has aided the Taliban in the past, of facilitating the
attacks. Pakistan, threatened with
sanctions by President Trump for
allowing “safe havens” for terrorists near its border with Afghanistan, denies assisting the group
and has made a point of condemning the attacks.
Other Afghan officials, as well
as security analysts, believe that
the attacks are a show of force in
response to Trump’s plan to add
4,000 U.S. troops in the country —
bringing the total U.S. presence to
about 13,500 — while increasing
nighttime raids and aerial bombing of Taliban forces.
“The attacks show that they are
here and are busy fighting and the
airstrikes have not affected them,”
said Abdul Hafeez Mansoor, a parliament member from the central
province of Panjshir. “They are
doing their utmost to deteriorate
the situation and are using any
means and measures for doing so.”
On Sunday, Ghani visited a police compound in Paktia province,
which borders Pakistan, to offer
condolences to the families of
about 80 people killed Tuesday in
a Taliban raid. Toryalai Abdiyani,
the local police chief, was among
those killed.
“Terrorists can shed our blood,
but they cannot break our will,”
Ghani’s Twitter feed read before
he headed to Gardez, Paktia’s capital. “RIP Gen. Abdiyani, a brave
son & soldier of our soil.”
Mohammad Radmanesh, a Defense Ministry spokesman, noted
that 270 Taliban fighters were
killed in Kandahar in recent days.
“We are resolved to stop them,
prevent them and reduce their
might and power to zero with the
passage of time with the available
resources,” Radmanesh said.
But with the Islamic State militant group — which asserted responsibility for the bombing of
the Imam Zaman Shiite mosque
in Kabul — also operating in Afghanistan, it is getting more difficult to prevent all attacks, he said.
“This is true that the terrorists
from around the world have gathered in Afghanistan and are involved in sabotage activities,”
Radmanesh said.
Mariam Koofi, a member of
parliament from the northeastern
Badakhshan province, lamented
what she sees as an increasingly
complicated fight for security in
Afghanistan.
“Unlike in the past, we have
seen the attacks happening more
in urban areas,” Koofi said, calling
for more resources for the nation’s
small air force. “Our intelligence is
weak and cannot prevent such
attacks.”

U.S.-backed forces seize major Syrian oil field
AND
BY L IZ S LY
Z AKARIA Z AKARIA
beirut — U.S.-backed forces
seized control of Syria’s biggest
oil field on Sunday, accelerating a
race with the Syrian government
and its Russian and Iranian allies
to take over the last major strongholds of the Islamic State in the
east of the country.
Kurds and Arabs fighting under the umbrella of the Syrian
Democratic Forces captured the
al-Omar oil field in Deir al-Zour
province after charging about
60 miles through the desert and
launching a surprise assault, according to U.S. military and SDF
officials.
The capture of the oil field
came two days after the SDF
officially declared victory in the
Islamic State’s de facto capital,
Raqqa, freeing up forces for what
is expected to be an intensified
effort to drive the militants out of
their remaining positions in
neighboring Deir al-Zour, said
Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for
the U.S. military.
Deir al-Zour is where most of
Syria’s oil is located, and it is
emerging as a key front in the
wider war for influence in the
Middle East, between the United
States and its allies and the
Iranian and Russian alliance that
is backing Syrian President
Bashar al-Assad.
The capture of al-Omar gives
the Kurdish-led SDF control over
a vital strategic asset that could
serve to give it leverage in any
future negotiations over the status of Kurds in Syria and to fund
the fledgling autonomous region
they are building in northeastern
Syria.
It also risks triggering a confrontation with the Syrian government, potentially drawing the
United States into a fight with
Syria, Russia and Iran.
Syrian government loyalists
advancing from the west had
reached the outskirts of al-Omar
only days before and had seemed
poised to take the oil field until
the SDF launched its offensive.
The oil field contains roughly a
quarter of Syria’s oil reserves and
had been a significant source of
income for the Islamic State as it
attempted to build a statelike
structure in the vast areas it once
controlled in Iraq and Syria.
The surprise assault was intended to leave the militant
group no time to sabotage the oil
field’s infrastructure, as it typically does when retreating from
important areas, Dillon said. The
U.S. military provided support in
the form of intelligence and combat advice, he said. But Dillon
declined to say whether U.S. Special Operations forces deployed
in Syria alongside the SDF had
participated in the operation.
“We put our forces where they
need to be to support our partners,” he said.
Al-Omar was taken without
“significant damage” to the oil
facilities there, according to a
statement issued by Liliwe Abdullah, a spokesman for the SDF
operation. SDF fighters are now
battling with Islamic State holdouts who retreated to a nearby
housing complex for workers, the
statement added.
Dillon said the U.S. military
and its allies are not in a race
with the Syrian government to
take territory from the rapidly
disintegrating forces of the Islamic State. The battle there,
nonetheless, is shaping up as a
competition between rival powers for control over an area that
contains most of Syria’s oil reserves and a key regional trade
route.
The next major prize is the
town of Bukamal, which straddles the highway linking the Iraqi
capital of Baghdad to the Syrian
capital of Damascus. Control
over the border town would enable Iran to reopen a vital land
route between Tehran and its
Lebanese ally Hezbollah in Beirut, deepening its strategic reach
into the heart of the Middle East.
The United States and its SDF
allies are also planning to advance toward Bukamal, where
the Islamic State has concentrated its forces, Dillon said. First,
however, they will have to clear
and consolidate their hold over
the large area that was seized
Sunday.
“Our mission is to defeat ISIS,”
Dillon said, using an alternative
acronym for the Islamic State.
“Our priority was the defeat of
ISIS in Raqqa, and now that
defeat has happened. They [the
SDF] have made this very quick
sprint down to al-Omar, and they
have to reinforce that area. The
offensive operations on Bukamal
will be difficult and will take a lot
of forces.”

Zakaria reported from Istanbul.
Abe’s win
could allow
revision of
constitution
JAPAN FROM A1
retained the two-thirds majorities in both houses of parliament
that are required to call for
constitutional amendments.
Abe has long sought to revise
Article 9, which renounces war,
and remove the ambiguity surrounding
Japan’s
military,
known as the Self-Defense
Forces.
While many conservatives
view the amendment as overdue,
many voters remain skeptical.
South Korea and China, Japan’s
neighbors, also are nervous
about what they see as the potential return of a militaristic Japan.
In an interview with NHK
after polls closed, Abe said he
would push for an amendment.
“The ruling parties have been
granted a majority,” he said. “I
think it was the people’s voice
telling us to make progress in
politics and bring results with a
stable political base.”
For a leader touting stability,
the election had been a gamble.
Abe had called the vote more
than a year early, justifying it by
saying that he needed a new
mandate to deal with the threat
posed by North Korea and to
work through the details of a
consumption-tax increase.
Many analysts said Abe’s motive was more opportunistic,
however, with the prime minister
taking advantage of the disarray
of the Democratic Party, Japan’s
main opposition party, and a
small bump in his approval ratings after a number of scandals
TOMOHIRO OHSUMI/BLOOMBERG NEWS
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Liberal Democratic Party headquarters in Tokyo. The win bolsters Abe’s hopes in a party leadership contest,
potentially cementing his place in history. If he serves a full four-year term, he would become Japan’s longest-serving prime minister.
earlier this year.
For a while, it didn’t look as if
the bet would pay off. After the
vote was announced, Tokyo Gov.
Yuriko Koike, a staunchly conservative former LDP member,
founded
her
own
party,
which soon attracted many members from the Democrats. Some,
including Koike herself, compared her mercurial rise to that
of France’s Emmanuel Macron
this year.
Unlike Macron, Koike’s challenge did not live up to the hype.
The governor opted against running in the election — and then
left for a scheduled business trip
to France on election day. Koike’s
Party of Hope was in third place
with 49 seats on Monday morning, as another new party — the
anti-amendment Constitutional
Democratic Party — placed second with 54.
Speaking to reporters in Paris,
Koike said she was disappointed.
“It’s a very harsh result. My
remarks and behavior made people feel unpleasant, and that led
to the harsh result,” Koike said,
according to Kyodo News. “I
reflect on this and feel I might
have been arrogant.”
In contrast with recent elections in the United States and
Europe, relatively few divisive
issues were on display in Japan
ahead of the vote. This, plus the
relative good health of the economy, led Daniel Sneider of Stanford University to call the vote a
“Seinfeld election” — an election
about nothing.
The LDP has long dominated
postwar Japanese politics. For
many Japanese voters, Abe’s
leadership represents stability
after years of short-lived governments before he returned to
the prime minister’s office in
2012.
Some analysts suggest, however, that the weakness of the
opposition may mask discontent
with Abe and a lack of support for
many of his policies. One exit poll
cited by Kyodo showed 51 percent
of voters saying they don’t trust
Abe, while 44.1 percent said they
do.
Koichi Nakano, a professor of
political science at Sophia University, said that the election
exposed a lack of widespread
support for Abe’s policies. Abe
did not win “because people
enthusiastically support him,”
Nakano said. “People are disaffected and the opposition is divided.”
The bad weather may have
also helped Abe. The approaching Typhoon Lan left voters battling strong winds and heavy rain
to make it to polling stations. On
Monday, Kyodo estimated the
final turnout at 53.69 percent,
only marginally above a record
low in the 2014 election.
That turnout was “remarkable
given the weather,” said Tobias
Harris, a political analyst with

The typhoon delayed final results, with 12 municipalities postponing vote counts until Monday.
Despite the rain, a number of
voters could be found exiting a

Sunday morning. Nobue Koizumi, a 67-year-old retired translator, said she had felt compelled to

EPA pulls
presenters
from panel
on R.I. bay
BY J ULIET E ILPERIN
AND B RADY D ENNIS
The Environmental Protection
Agency has instructed two of its
scientists and one contractor not
to speak as planned at a scientific
conference Monday in Providence, R.I., sparking criticism
from some academics and congressional Democrats.
EPA officials confirmed Sunday that its researchers would not
present at the State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed program but did not offer an explanation for the decision.
“EPA scientists are attending,
they simply are not presenting, it
is not an EPA conference,” EPA
spokesman John Konkus said in
an email.
The New York Times first reported the cancellations.
The conference marks the culmination of a three-year report
on the status of Narragansett Bay,
New England’s largest estuary,
and the challenges it faces. Climate change features as a significant factor in the 500-page report, which evaluates 24 aspects
of the bay and its larger watershed. The organizers intend to
present a 28-page summary report of their findings in a news
conference Monday.
“Narragansett Bay is one of
Rhode Island’s most important
economic assets and the EPA
won’t let its scientists talk with
local leaders to plan for its future.
Whatever you think about climate change, this kind of collaboration should be a no-brainer,”
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.)
said in a statement. “Muzzling
our leading scientists benefits no
one.” Whitehouse is scheduled to
speak at the event.
For roughly six years, the EPA
has provided about $600,000 annually for each of more than two
dozen national estuaries, including the Narragansett Bay Estuary
Program, the conference’s host.
The program’s director, Tom
Borden, said the head of the EPA’s
National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory Atlantic Ecology Division in
Narragansett informed him Friday that the keynote speaker,
division research ecologist Autumn Oczkowski, and another
colleague in the lab, Rose Martin,
would not be able to make presentations at the event.
“I was not given a clear reason
why,” Borden said in an interview,
adding that his team had worked
closely with several of the agency’s scientists on protecting and
restoring the bay. “It’s a terrific
partnership to have EPA working
with us.”
An EPA contractor who had
contributed to two chapters of
the report, Emily Shumchenia,
was also told not to speak at the
event. She and Martin were slated
to take part in a panel titled “The
Present and Future Biological Implications of Climate Change.”
Borden said the organizers invited Oczkowski and Martin because they were “independent
scientists” who could offer valuable perspectives.
At least one senior regional
EPA official is expected to attend
the conference Monday; it is unclear whether the researchers
previously scheduled to speak
will go.
The estuary report, which was
subject to extensive peer review
and public comment, charts how
Narragansett Bay is becoming
cleaner but also faces challenges
such as nutrient runoff and climate change.
The issue of the EPA’s approach
to climate-change science has become even more fraught since
Donald Trump became president,
as Administrator Scott Pruitt has
questioned whether human activity ranks as a main driver of the
warming the globe has experienced in recent decades. Political
appointees have removed pages
from the agency’s website that
address the issue and have canceled some grants supporting climate-change initiatives.
Robinson Fulweiler, a Boston
University ecosystems ecologist
who has studied the effects of climate change on marine life, called
the situation an “abuse of power”
by the Trump administration.
“The silencing of government
scientists is a scary step toward
silencing anyone who disagrees,”
she said in an email. “The choice
by our government leaders to
ignore the abundant and overwhelming data regarding climate
change does not stop it from
being true or prevent the negative
consequences that are already
occurring and those that are on
the horizon.”

Judge to weigh life in jail for Bergdahl
Sentencing hearing for
deserter to begin Monday
BY
Fidelity ousts 2 amid
harassment complaints
BY
A LEX H ORTON
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the
soldier who vanished from his
remote base in Afghanistan in
2009, endured five years of brutal militant captivity and was
recovered following a controversial prisoner swap with the Taliban, begins a sentencing hearing
Monday that could send him to
prison for life.
In an Army courtroom at Fort
Bragg, N.C., on Oct. 16, Bergdahl,
31, entered a guilty plea to charges of desertion and misbehavior
before the enemy. His fate will be
decided by a military judge.
Bergdahl is hoping the torture he
endured as a prisoner, including
being caged and beaten, will
warrant leniency.
The misbehavior charge,
which carries a maximum sentence of life, is a rare accusation,
used when troops flee, surrender
or endanger fellow service members through disobedience. On
the desertion charge, he could
receive a maximum sentence of
five years. Bergdahl has said he
left his base to walk to another
U.S. facility, where he hoped to
air his grievances about alleged
problems in his unit.
The judge, Army Col. Jeffrey R.
Nance, will also have to grapple
with the defense’s renewed assertion that President Trump’s criticisms of Bergdahl, before and
after he took office, have tainted
the trial process and should lead
to the case’s dismissal. Trump
has called Bergdahl a “dirty,
rotten traitor.”
Nance said in February that
comments by Trump on the campaign trail were “disturbing,” but
he concluded they did not
amount to unlawful command
influence.
The president brought the issue back into focus this month
when he declined to comment on
the trial but said, “I think people
have heard my comments in the
past.” In response, the defense
wrote last week that “President
Trump stands at the pinnacle of
an unbroken chain of command

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl entered a guilty plea last week to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the
enemy in an Army courtroom at Fort Bragg, N.C. President Trump has criticized the soldier.
the remaining critical steps of
the case.”
Brian Bouffard, a former Navy
lawyer who handles court martials and civilian cases, said that
unlawful command influence is a
“showstopping no-no” in military courts and will be an issue
for Nance.
The administration appeared
to try to get ahead of the matter
Friday. “The President expects all
military personnel who are involved in any way in the military
justice process to exercise their
independent professional judgment, consistent with applicable
laws and regulations,” a White
House statement said.
Prosecutors are expected to
use testimony from troops who
have said they were injured on
recovery missions after Bergdahl
walked off his outpost in rugged
Paktika province. Attempts to
find him involved thousands of
troops and diverted resources,
such as surveillance drones and
helicopters, as ground troops
scoured the area for weeks.
Nance has ruled that a Navy
SEAL and an Army National
Guard sergeant were wounded in
firefights that probably would
not have happened if Bergdahl
had not gone missing.
Nance also could take into
account Bergdahl’s treatment in
Pakistan, where he was held for
much of his captivity. An Army
physician who testified in the
case found that Bergdahl suffered muscular nerve damage in
his lower legs, degenerative back
damage and a loss of range of
motion in his left shoulder that
prevents him from lifting heavy
objects.
Lt. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, a senior Army officer who interviewed
Bergdahl, testified in 2015 that
he found Bergdahl “unrealistically idealistic” and that a jail
sentence would be inappropriate, given the circumstances of
the case. Another doctor concluded that Bergdahl exhibited
signs of schizotypal personality
disorder, a variant of schizophrenia that has less frequent or
intense psychotic episodes.
In addition to confinement,
Bergdahl could receive a dishonorable discharge and lose his
medical benefits.
Bergdahl, who has been work-
ing at Joint Base San AntonioFort Sam Houston in Texas, said
Trump’s comments were hurtful
and expressed doubts he would
receive fair treatment, according
to an interview published this
weekend by Britain’s Sunday
Times.
“At least the Taliban were
honest enough to say, ‘I’m the
guy who’s going to cut your
throat,’ ” he told the newspaper.
“Here, it could be the guy I pass
in the corridor who’s going to
sign the paper that sends me
away for life.”
President Barack Obama negotiated a prisoner swap in May
2014, handing over five Taliban
operatives held at Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Bergdahl. Obama administration officials defended the decision, saying it was in line with long-held
military doctrine that troops can
never be left behind on the
battlefield. But some Republicans said the deal amounted to
negotiating with terrorists.

Fidelity Investments, one of the
world’s largest investment firms,
has pushed out two high-level
executives over the past few
weeks amid sexual harassment
complaints, according to two people familiar with the allegations.
Former portfolio manager C.
Robert Chow resigned earlier this
month and Gavin Baker, a prominent tech fund manager, was fired
by the company in September,
according to the people, who were
not authorized to speak publicly
about the cases. Chow and Baker
could not be immediately reached
for comment. Their dismissals
were first reported by the Wall
Street Journal.
Fidelity declined to comment
on specific employees but spokesman Vincent Loporchio said in a
statement that its policies “prohibit harassment in any form.
When allegations of these sorts
are brought to our attention, we
investigate them immediately
and take prompt and appropriate
action. We simply will not, and do
not, tolerate this type of behavior.”
Fidelity has also hired an outside
consultant to review employee behavior in its stock-picking unit,
according to one of the people
familiar with the allegations.
Chow was accused of making
inappropriate sexual comments
to colleagues, and Baker allegedly
harassed a 26-year-old employee.
Both worked in the company’s
stock-picking division. An unnamed spokesman for Baker told
the Wall Street Journal that he
“strenuously” denies the allegations.
The allegations come amid
heightened sensitivity to sexual
harassment complaints in corporate America. Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was fired as the
head of his company after reports
emerged that he had harassed
dozens of women over decades.
And on Friday, the New York
Times reported that former Fox
News host Bill O’Reilly secretly
settled a sexual harassment allegation with a network contributor
for $32 million.
Wall Street, meanwhile, has
long fought its reputation as a
place where women and minorities struggle to succeed. None of

the country’s leading publicly
traded banks — JPMorgan Chase,
Citigroup or Bank of America —
has ever been led by a woman.
Last year, Bank of America was
accused of running a “bros club”
that underpaid female executives.
Women account for just 2 percent
of financial industry chief executives, according to research by
Catalyst, a nonprofit group. They
hold about 29 percent of executive
or senior-level positions in the
industry.
Fidelity operates in the asset
management world, where such
concerns have also lingered.
Women and minorities are locked
out of some of the sector’s most
lucrative positions, managing just
1.1 percent of the $71.4 trillion of
the industry’s assets, according to
a study commissioned by the John
S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Bella Research Group
this year.
Fidelity is somewhat unusual
in the financial world. It is led by a
woman, Abigail P. Johnson, who
has been chairman and chief executive since 2014. Johnson’s
grandfather started the firm, and
she owns a significant share of the
privately held company, according to Forbes, which estimates her
net worth at more than $17 billion.
Johnson is considered one of
the most powerful women in finance from her perch at Fidelity,
which has more than $6 trillion in
assets. It also has several women
in senior leadership positions, including Kathleen Murphy, the
president of personal investing.
The company held an emergency meeting last week in the wake
of the dismissals of the two executives, according to a person familiar with the allegations. Brian Hogan, president of Fidelity’s stockpicking division, stressed the
company’s intolerance of inappropriate workplace conduct during that meeting, the person said.
“Fidelity remains committed to
providing all associates with an
outstanding work environment
and we will always work hard to
ensure that we take swift and
appropriate action when an individual violates our policies, and
more importantly, our values,” the
company’s statement said.

Tailgating 18-wheelers? Don’t worry. They’re platooning.
BY
A SHLEY H ALSEY III
If you look to the next lane and
see two 18-wheelers roar past at
70 mph with just 10 yards between them, you’ll probably
think they are dangerously close.
In this high-tech age, that may
no longer be true. In fact, it might
be just the opposite, and it might
even end up saving you money.
A wave of new technology intended to make trucks safer —
using radar, cameras and reflective light scanning — is sweeping
the industry. By next year, much
of it may be combined to put
pairs of trucks on the road at a
distance that before would not
have been possible or safe.
One reason this matters to
people who don’t drive tractortrailers is found in the annual
crash-death numbers from the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration: Of the 4,317 people who died in crashes involving
large trucks last year, 72 percent
of them weren’t in trucks, but
rather passenger cars. An additional 11 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists, roadway workers
or police officers standing beside
the highway, according to statistics released this month.
Trucks are involved in 11 percent of fatal crashes, although
they make up just 4 percent of
vehicles on the road, according to
the Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration. Ten percent of
truck fatalities are rear-end
crashes — three times as many as
rear-end collisions between two
cars.
The pairing of tractor-trailers
at a distance of 30 to 50 feet is
called platooning. Here’s why it’s
significant — and how it might
save you money.
Fans of bike racing and NASCAR are acquainted with what it
means to get into someone else’s
slipstream. Whether in spandex
or NASCAR fire-retardant suits,
racers know they can save energy
or fuel by tucking close behind
another rider or race car.
Truckers know that, too.
Trucking companies spent
about $90 billion on diesel fuel
last year. Firms spend the most
paying drivers, but buying diesel
often is the second-biggest expense, sometimes amounting to
20 percent of operating costs.
A truck tucked in the slipstream of another tractor-trailer
can save 10 percent on fuel. But
the truck in front also will burn
about 5 percent less fuel. Why?
Part of the drag on a truck
plowing into the wind is caused
by turbulent air that tumbles off
the top and sides of the trailer.
When two trucks pair up closely,
the air flows more smoothly from
the first to the second, reducing
that turbulence.
It’s fuel savings for both drivers. Yes, drivers; self-driving
trucks are said to be coming, but
for now the prospect of 80,000pound vehicles hurtling down
the highway on their own is
somewhere over the horizon.
(Uber
last
year
invested
$680 million in the autonomous
truck company Otto, which delivered 2,000 cases of Budweiser
from Fort Collins, Colo., to Colorado Springs in a carefully monitored 130-mile test drive without
anyone touching a steering wheel
on the highway.)
“The world of automated vehicles still will have a key role
for the drivers,” Chris Spear,
president of the American
Trucking Associations, said at a
recent Senate hearing. “We
think drivers are still going to be
in the seat.”
But the role of the driver will
evolve.
“I believe drivers will become
more like airline pilots,” said Troy
Clarke, chief executive of the
truck manufacturer Navistar,
“even more trained and skilled
than they are today.”
Safety advocates, however,
have several concerns about platooning trucks, said Jonathan
Adkins, executive director of the
Governors Highway Safety Association.
“The chief safety concern for
passenger vehicles is how other
drivers will react to platoons,”
Adkins said. “How fast should
platoons be permitted to travel?
Will long platoons block exit
lanes that were not designed for
such circumstances? Can we limit platoons to only the right lane,
rather than blocking multiple
lanes of traffic? How can we
prevent cars from trying to dangerously ‘cut in’ between platooning trucks?”
Adkins adds, “The good news
is that the necessary research is
being conducted.”
Two big truck manufacturing
companies, Navistar and Daimler, are preparing to put platooning trucks on the road, but an
upstart California firm called
Peloton (named after the bikeracing practice of utilizing the
slipstream) says it may leapfrog
the big boys to have paired trucks
on the road next year.
Peloton partnered this year
with Omnitracs, a trucking fleet
management company. Although
trucks from the same trucking
company could pair up on the
highway on their own, Omnitracs
can help match any two trucks
heading in the same direction.
Peloton says that nine states
allow platooning and that 29
others have laws that generally
require vehicles to keep a “reasonable and prudent” distance
between them without specifying
an exact distance.
Here’s how platooning works:
Peloton plans to operate a central clearinghouse that communicates through a cellular connection with trucks whose companies have subscribed to their
service. Once two trucks are
paired, the interaction between
the trucks is coordinated over the
5.9 GHz dedicated short-range
communications spectrum.
“We’re sending information
directly from the front truck to
the rear truck, information like
engine torque, vehicle speed,
brake application,” said Josh
Switkes, one of Peloton’s found-
ers. “Whatever the front truck is
doing, the rear truck is doing it
instantly, automatically, very reliably.”
Platooning relies on a system
of technologies already being
installed in trucks and many cars
that includes GPS, cameras, advanced cruise control and radarbased collision avoidance. A
camera from the front truck
displays the road ahead to the
driver of the second truck. The
information flow is coordinated
onboard by a computer Switkes
describes as “about the size of a
laptop.”
The concept of data flying between trucks, from truck to base
station and within each truck —
all to make instantaneous decisions with life-or-death implications — is daunting.
“The amount of data being
moved about the truck is a lot
higher,” said Alan Amici, chief
technical officer at the global
connectivity corporation TE. “For
platooning, you need real-time
control.”
Amici said trucks might be
operating on data loads of 125 to
500 kilobits per second, but
“With high-speed data moving
around in the truck, you can get
that up 10 megabits per second,
to 100 megabits per second, and
when you get into autonomous
vehicles, you could be approaching 1 gigabit or 10 gigabits per
second. So, it’s really high-speed
data that allows much more control.”
The Peloton system links accel-
eration and braking directly to
the engine controls, bypassing
the driver when two trucks are
paired, although both drivers
continue to steer and can take full
control if a situation warrants it.
“We can send data very rapidly
between the two trucks,” Switkes
said. “It’s all electronically integrated. The reaction is about 30
milliseconds, compared to a human taking 1 to 1.5 seconds to
react, at a minimum.”
The Peloton control center will
determine when conditions are
suited to pairing two trucks.
“In severe weather conditions,
we can restrict platooning,” Switkes said. “In severe traffic conditions, we can restrict platooning
and we can adjust the following
distance and other parameters
remotely. If we lose the connection, we know we’ve lost it and
immediately take action to slow
down that rear truck.”
Although Switkes likes to emphasize the safety aspects of platooning — and trucking companies see that, too — firms will be
lured to Peloton and competitors
by fuel savings.
“Most of the fleets we talk to
say they can platoon most of the
time, because they drive almost
entirely on the highway,” Switkes
said. “If you have a fleet of 20,000
or 30,000 trucks, you’re talking
millions of dollars from the fuel
savings, not even taking into
account the safety benefits, and
that’s why we have some big fleets
excited about platooning.”

Colombians
catching
coffee fever
COFFEE FROM A1
known for peddling a few cheap,
lower-quality brands. But as consumers there clamor for a better
brew, grocery stores are stocking
locally produced gourmet beans.
Panama, meanwhile, is worldfamous for cultivating Geisha — a
prized coffee variety known for its
subtle, almost tea-like favor. Yet
for years, Panama was as infamous as Colombia for serving
up bad brews at home. That has
changed, however, with a new
crop of “third wave” coffee houses
— reflecting a movement to produce and serve artisanal coffee.
In Colombia, domestic consumption of coffee — which
lagged global trends for years — is
skyrocketing, with experts citing
the wider availability of betterquality coffee as a major factor.
Hundreds of new cafes have
opened in recent years, with
much of that growth coming
from just one chain, Tostao. Since
opening in December 2015, the
company has democratized good
coffee, offering prices so low that
even maids and construction
workers can afford a high-quality
cup.
Yet the most elaborate new
brew houses are elevating coffee
to an art form, replicating the
almost laboratory-like cafes pioneered by hardcore java hipsters
in such places as New York, Berlin, Seattle and Tokyo. The good
coffee has excited the senses of
Colombians like Parra, who feel as
if they are discovering their nation’s most famous (legal) export
for the first time.
An aspiring cafe owner, Parra
said he became inspired after
sampling the brews at one of the
capital’s new high-style cafes. His
obsession drove him one recent
afternoon to downtown Bogota,
where he joined 14 students
for classes at Varietale. One of the
capital’s hippest coffee shops, it
serves, among other things,
blends produced via vacuum and
heat in glass siphons.
For the attendees — from simple aficionados to baristas — the
classes offer the kind of minutiae
about coffee qualities typically reserved for agribusiness schools.
In one exercise, students placed
12 grams of grounds from different batches into cups before dousing them with hot water. They
smelled the bouquet, then
slurped and spit, as if at a wine
tasting.
“As drinkers, I think Colombians only now are really understanding what good coffee tastes
like,” Parra said.
Colombians began to get a
taste of premium coffee at least as
far back as the early 2000s, when
Juan Valdez — the now-global
chain established by the national
coffee federation — began opening cafes. The quality of Colombian coffee beans was already on
the rise. In the early 1990s, when
coffee prices collapsed on the
commodities markets, Colombia
responded by encouraging its
farmers to better compete global-

ly by producing finer varieties of
beans. The government has additionally deployed experts to help
teach farmers to better judge
well-balanced taste and acidity
levels.
But experts say the spurt in
quality coffee shops began more
recently.
The idea came in large part
from Colombian entrepreneurs
who had traveled to Europe and
the United States and experienced coffee-drinking epiphanies. Abel Calderon, co-owner of
Varietale, for instance, opened his
first branch in 2015 after sampling what Colombian coffee
THE WASHINGTON POST
could taste like at cafes such as
Storyville in Seattle.
“We had to taste our coffee
outside of Colombia to appreciate
what it could be like here,” he
said.
Pedro Gasca, a former executive with the Colombian airline
Avianca, co-founded Tostao after
visiting global chains such as Pret
a Manger.
The concept was tweaked for
Colombia. Realizing that the majority of the high-end coffee shops
here were priced out of reach for
most Colombians, Tostao instead
went for volume — selling coffee
that has earned approving nods
Varietale, a hip coffee house in Bogota, Colombia. Better beans and
new brewing methods have brought better coffee to Colombians.
from specialists for as cheap as 40
cents a cup.
Coffee drinking per capita in
Colombia still lags places such as
the United States, France and Brazil. But between 2009 and 2014,
the most recent data available,
coffee consumption soared 33 percent in Colombia, compared with
15 percent globally. That rush to
java is evident in Tostao’s rapid
growth. In just 20 months, it has
leapt to 200 locations — becoming
as ubiquitous in Bogota as Starbucks is in the United States.
“We discovered that Colombians — I mean all Colombians,
including the working class —
really wanted a good cup of coffee,” Gasca said.
At the same time, international
entrepreneurs have spotted the
odd hole for better-quality coffee
in Colombia’s market. Starbucks
arrived in 2014. Tyler Youngblood,
a native Californian, launched a
coffee-roasting operation in Colombia in 2010. His company,
Azahar Coffee Co., opened its first
Bogota coffee shop in a makeshift
metal container in 2013. This
month, it opened a far larger cafe.
The firm uses some of the highest-quality beans available — the
kind almost always exported in
the past.
“I think the point is that Colombians have a right to drink
their own best coffee,” Youngblood said.
Another boost for coffee culture, local entrepreneurs say,
came from peace.
The official end last year of
Colombia’s half-century-long war
with the left-wing FARC guerrillas, as well as an easing of paramilitary violence in some coffeegrowing regions, has opened up
swaths of the country to local
farm-to-table restaurateurs and
coffee shop owners, some of
whom are striking deals directly
with farmers.
Alejandro Gutierrez, chef at
Salvo Patria — a Bogota restaurant that started as a coffee shop
six years ago — recently tasted
coffee grown and roasted in the
battled-scarred Meta region.
Meta is not one of the country’s
better-known coffee regions, and
Gutierrez was surprised by the
beans’ quality. He ended up ordering batches for his restaurant,
which lists coffee-growing regions for blends on its menu in
the same way it does for wines.
“That whole state was FARC
territory, and you wouldn’t have
thought about it before as an
option for good coffee,” he said.
“But here you have this great
coffee coming from there, and
who knew? Well, now we know.”

RE
Russians in U.S. split over Trump, fear another Cold War
BY
C OLBY I TKOWITZ
west hollywood, calif. — Anastasia Kurteeva worries about a
new Cold War.
She is afraid that escalating
tensions between the United
States and Russia will make it
harder for people to travel freely
between the countries, harder for
her parents in Moscow to visit.
The U.S. government’s decision
in August to temporarily stop issuing nonimmigrant travel visas
in Russia in retaliation for Moscow’s demands for a reduction in
U.S. diplomatic personnel there
confirmed her fears. Hostility between the countries has only
grown since then, with revelations that Russian operatives purchased thousands of Facebook
ads exploiting social divides in the
United States during the 2016
presidential campaign.
“I heard stories about the Cold
War and how scary it was for both
sides to be in that kind of war,”
said Kurteeva, who immigrated to
the United States in 2002. “Russian Americans are in the worst
situation, because you’re in between two countries and you have
ties to both of them.”
For Russian Americans, renewed acrimony between their
native country and their adoptive
home is stirring memories of a
time when Russia was enemy
No. 1 in the United States. Their
fears have merit: A CNN poll in
August found that 89 percent of
Americans see Russia as a threat,
a proportion almost as large as
during the height of the Cold War
in 1983, when 96 percent feared
Russia.
That political climate has revealed a generational divide in
America’s community of Russian
immigrants, between an older
wave of Jewish refugees who fled
the Soviet Union in the midst of
the Cold War and a younger cohort who, like Kurteeva, arrived
with high expectations for a richer life and no memory of the
international strife.
In this city of trendy clubs and
restaurants known primarily for
its gay community, an enclave of
older Russian immigrants —
largely supporters of President
Trump — say the accusations of
collusion between the president
and Russia have no merit and

Raisa Aguf, who arrived from Latvia in 1980, says she thinks President Trump is getting a raw deal.
remind them of the political corruption of their homeland. But
among younger Russians, Trump
is a stain on their American
Dream, a replica of the authoritarian persona they detest in Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Kurteeva, who became a U.S.
citizen in 2012, is a lot like the city
she lives in, straddling dual identities. She lives in LGBT-friendly
West Hollywood with her girlfriend, Maria Shtabskaya, who
also is Russian.
On a late August afternoon, the
model-tall 33-year-old slid into a
booth next to Shtabskaya at a
dimly lit upscale restaurant near
Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive. Kurteeva is freer with her critiques of
the Russian government than
Shtabskaya, who is more concerned with presenting a favorable view of Russians. When
Kurteeva mentions Putin and her
worries that he will prevent Russians from traveling to the United
States, Shtabskaya hits her leg
under the table.
Kurteeva expresses similar
skepticism toward Trump, her
politics firmly aligned with her
life in the United States.
“When the election came out,
it’s like, who do you associate with
more, as a gay person or as a
Russian?” she said. “I’m more concerned about gay issues than the
Russian-American relationship.”
A generational divide
On one summer evening, several dozen Russian-speaking residents gathered for a neighborhood party at Plummer Park, a
popular hangout for West Hollywood’s Russian community. Russian pop music blared from a
small portable speaker and pirozhki, a small oval Russian pie, was
served up alongside pizza boxes.
Nearby is a monument to Soviet
army soldiers who died during
World War II, where men gather
daily to play chess and reminisce.
They speak almost exclusively
in Russian and shop primarily in
Russian-owned stores. Because
many don’t speak English, they
watch state-run television from
Moscow.
They tend to be Republican
and sympathetic to Trump,
specks of red in an overwhelmingly blue city. Democratic policies
remind them of the socialism they
escaped.
Raisa Aguf, a redhead with an
equally fiery personality, donned
a red apron and served up the
casual fare. She moved here from
Latvia in 1980, when it was still
under Soviet rule. She started the
first Russian travel agency in
West Hollywood, and she is a
longtime member of the Russian
Advisory Board, a group created
by the city council to address the
needs of the immigrant community.
Aguf, a senior who declined to
give her age, said she loves the
United States. But based on what
she sees on Russian television
news about the investigations
into meddling in the election and
collusion with Trump, it’s hard to
know “what’s right, what’s
wrong.”
Regardless, she supports
Trump’s politics and thinks he’s
getting a raw deal.
“I voted for him, and I believe
he could do [the job] if people let
him,” she said.
For many former Soviet Jews,
the allegations of collusion remind them of the life they left
behind, where a casual meeting
could lead to accusations of political crimes. Andrei Korobkov, a
professor of Russian studies at
Middle Tennessee State University, says that the endless focus on
Russians ultimately empowers
Putin.
“It goes way beyond the McCarthyism, the amount of time devot-
ed to Russia, the level of viciousness,” Korobkov said. “I think the
only person who enjoys the current hysteria is Putin, because he
was made a superhero in the U.S.
media and his powers are mostly
exaggerated.”
Among a younger cohort of
Russian immigrants, there is disappointment that Trump won the
election. Farhad Yusupov, the current chairman of the Russian Advisory Board and one of the few
members who is not older or Jewish, called Trump “a puppet.”
He has no doubt that the Russians tampered with the U.S. election, and he was devastated by its
outcome.
“Those older people at home,
they watch Russian TV. Some —
believe it or not — like Putin.
Some of them like Trump,” said
Yusupov, 48. “Most of my friends
are Russian, but most of my
friends are more liberal. Our first
years in America, our favorite
show was ‘Seinfeld,’ and that’s
what molded us.”
Battling stereotypes
One day, Nina Pankratz
bumped into a neighbor in her
apartment building. He was having computer problems and asked
her, “Do you know any good Russian hackers?”
A professional theatrical actress in Moscow, Pankratz has
struggled to find work since she
moved to the United States in
1994. The closest she has come to
a big break was last year when she
had six callbacks for the Cold War
spy drama “The Americans.” She
worries she’s too “smiley” to play
the archetypal Russian.
It’s why her agent tells his Russian clients to lose their accents
for any chance at a diversity of
roles. Russians are Hollywood’s
remaining acceptable typecasted
villain — no one is offended by a
Russian bad guy.
Pankratz describes herself as
apolitical, but the intense focus
on Russians as sleuths can be
annoying, she said. She is nostalgic for her home country: She
criticizes the rigidity of American
rules and laws, fears getting
pulled over by a U.S. police officer
and wonders why her 21-year-old
son is expected to be so serious
about his future instead of enjoying his youth.
Now’s the time to
GET YOUR ROOF
READY FOR WINTER!
More concerning, she knows
all too well how family members
in both countries could suffer
from intensifying tensions between the United States and Russia.
Pankratz moved to Nashville to
follow her husband, a frontman
for a 1980s Christian rock band
called Ruscha. She was eight
months pregnant, knew barely
any English and was terribly
homesick.
Though the Cold War had
thawed, relations between the
United States and Russia were
still tenuous. When her mother
planned a visit to meet her new
grandson, she waited in the cold
for hours outside the U.S. consulate for her visa only to be denied
without explanation, Pankratz
said.
She never saw her mother
again. Two months later, her
mother died of a heart attack. A
broken heart, Pankratz believes.
Now Pankratz lives in Los Angeles, and on a recent evening
here, she gathered some fellow
Russian friends to celebrate her
51st birthday on her apartment
building balcony, with sweeping
views of palm trees against a dazzling pink-and-orange sunset.
They sipped Putinka vodka — a
Russian brand inspired by Putin
— and ate red beets with herring.
They spoke almost exclusively in
Russian.
Her friend Cyril Zima, a 33year-old filmmaker who moved
from Moscow several years ago,
said that the stereotypes about
Russians are distorted, but it’s no
different than stereotypes of
Americans as fat, gun-slinging
cowboys who eat cheeseburgers.
For Kurteeva, America is her
home. But, she said, the media
often mistakenly presents the
conflict with Russia in black and
white terms.
“It’s not all Russians are bad
and all Americans are good,”
Kurteeva said. “I think the U.S.
has as many intelligence spies as
Russia.”
Shtabskaya scrunched her face.
“I have no comments for that,”
she said.
“I still think there’s a long way
to go to understand each other,”
Shtabskaya said. “There’s already
too much negativity.”

New group sees threats to women’s rights in Trump era
Legal network aiming to
stop ‘dangerous retreats’
BY
J ANELL R OSS
It started with a kind of
Trump-era emergency alert.
“Under the Trump Administration, we are already seeing a
serious reduction in federal civil
rights enforcement,” read the
email sent to lawyers and legal
organizations nationwide this
summer. “Simultaneously, reports indicate that new waves of
gender-based hostility and harassment . . . have increased in
schools and workplaces across
the country.”
In months since the warning,
scores of attorneys have joined
forces to beat back what they say
is a wave of threats to legal
protections for women, spurred
by President Trump’s election.
The email blast came from the
National Women’s Law Center
and represents the organization’s first step in building a rapidresponse legal collective prepared
to take on the women’s rights
cases that it fears the administration will ignore or inspire.
They’ve dubbed the effort the
Legal Network for Gender Equity.
Organizers point to decisions
the Trump administration has
made that could curb advancements for women, including allowing more employers to opt out
of covering birth control in workplace insurance plans and suspending an Obama administration effort to shrink the gender
wage gap. In the course of one
term, the changes could shift
what the federal government is
willing to do in women’s interests
and what companies, individuals
and institutions feel emboldened
to try, NWLC leaders said.
“When the election happened, I think there was an
immediate sense of urgency,”
said Debra Katz, a lawyer with a
résumé full of litigation related
to whistleblower cases, sexual
harassment and gender-based
discrimination.
Katz is one of 216 lawyers in
32 states involved in the legal
network. Organizers hope to

recruit more.
“This — what we are in the
midst of right now — is absolutely the kind of atmosphere where
dangerous retreats can happen,
serious gains can be lost,” Katz
said.
The network of lawyers has
begun assessing 43 cases, including a pregnancy discrimination
lawsuit against Walmart. Many
of the cases come from people
who contact the Washingtonbased NWLC, which has the capacity to take on just two cases a
year without the network.
With lawyers on board who
can pursue cases in most states,
the emails and conference calls
organized by the center have all
but declared legal war.
“I think we are very much at
the point of wondering what
could possibly be next,” said Fatima Goss Graves, who in July
became president and chief executive of NWLC. She also is the
first black woman to lead the
42-year-old organization. “I
don’t think we have ever faced a
point when all, and I do mean all,
of our issues seem to be under
attack at once.”
Right here, right now
Kassandra Lawrence was desperate.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the
Justice Department each had investigated the sheriff ’s deputy’s
claim of pregnancy discrimination against her employer and
determined in April that — while
her case had merit — neither
agency would bring a legal case.
Lawrence couldn’t afford the
cost of a private attorney upfront. So, in an effort to find an
alternative, she did an online
search for “pregnancy discrimination” and “Ivanka Trump” —
the only high-profile person she
knew who was talking about
family-leave issues. The search
led her to a story that mentioned
the NWLC.
“I just knew that what happened to me wasn’t right and
shouldn’t happen to anyone
else,” Lawrence said. “It certainly
didn’t seem right that you need
to be rich, or somehow have a lot
of extra money for a lawyer to
even get to court.”
The problems had started when
Lawrence delivered her second

first impression of your home.

child. She had been working for
the Stafford County, Va., sheriff’s
office for eight years when she
became pregnant again. The pregnancy went smoothly, but the delivery did not. Lawrence lost a lot
of blood during a complicated
Caesarean section.
In the middle of her recovery,
the sheriff ’s department told
Lawrence she needed to report to
work on a specific date or reapply for a job, according to her
lawsuit. She had 12 weeks’ leave,
no more, under the Family and
Medical Leave Act, and she had
already taken “too much” time
off. All of it was essentially regarded as optional by a department official who said “women
chose to have children,” the lawsuit says. She should have
planned things in a way that
wasn’t so disruptive.
The sheriff ’s office and
Stafford County, both named in
Lawrence’s suit, declined to
comment.
Lawrence needed her job, and
she liked it. She still does. So she
went back to work in pain and
with scar tissue wrapped around
some of her organs. Lawrence
put off surgery to remove it
because she knew how it would
be received at work.
When she took time off for
carpel tunnel surgery on her
weapon hand — necessary to do
her job — department officials
accused her of medical malingering, she said, using leave time to
be with her kids.
That’s when she saw it: a memo
from the sheriff asking employees
to donate leave time to a colleague undergoing cancer treatment. The sheriff asserted that,
while the man had exhausted his
12 weeks of leave, he deserved the
department’s help, Lawrence
said.
“I had already, at this point,
had a lot of strange conversations,
had a lot of things said to me
about women being such an unfair burden on the department,”
Lawrence said. “First, you question yourself. You do. Then, like
most people who need their jobs,
you [get] angry. You get scared.
But that memo, I just couldn’t
believe that they’d put this attitude in a memo, clear as day.”
NWLC connected her with
Phillis Rambsy, a lawyer in the
network. Rambsy said their first
conversation lasted more than
an hour.
“She was determined but, unfortunately, living and working
in a time and in a place where her
rights don’t appear to have been
recognized,” Rambsy said. “The
sad thing is that place is here.
That time is right now.”
Rambsy and her law partner,
Tom Spiggle, decided to take Lawrence’s case on contingency, with
payment due if the lawyers win
the case or secure a settlement.
Many lawyers in the network
plan to take cases the same way.
NWLC will not cover their costs
nor will it share in any settlements or court-ordered payouts.
Faith in the courts
In recent weeks, the Trump
administration has announced a
set of decisions that have roiled
women’s rights advocates.
On Aug. 30, the White
House Office of Management
and Budget put on hold a rule
that would have required employers with 100 workers or
more to share with the EEOC
information about the race, eth-

nicity and gender of employees.
Supporters said the rule, set to
take effect in 2018, would all but
force companies to correct pervasive gender and racial pay
disparities.
The administration said the
rule would impose too big a burden on employers. Ivanka Trump,
who has positioned herself as an
advocate for gender equity issues
in the administration, gave the
delay her seal of approval.
Then last month, the administration took aim at another
Obama administration policy
when the Education Department
rescinded federal guidance on
how colleges and universities
should deal with sexual assault
on campus and announced an
interim plan. The move came
after an official in charge of the
Education Department’s civil
rights division told the New York
Times in July that 90 percent of
sexual assault allegations on
campus are illegitimate. The official later apologized for her comments, calling them “flippant.”
And this month, the administration expanded the number of
companies that can opt out of an
Affordable Care Act provision
requiring employer insurance to
cover birth control.
“Our greatest concerns have
begun to turn into realities,”
Graves said. “We have little choice
but to put out faith in the courts.”
Suzanne Goldberg, a professor
at Columbia Law School, said the
Trump administration’s approach to policies affecting women continues a familiar pattern
in history. Some administrations
have pushed to expand legal
equity while others pulled the
country toward the status quo,
said Goldberg, who also leads
Columbia’s Center for Gender
and Sexuality Law.
In those periods of retrenchment, strategic partnerships between nonprofit groups and lawyers in private practice are a littlerecognized way many civil rights
gains have been made.
“People think about the country as this place where the government and the vast majority of
citizens have always been these
ferocious defenders of fairness
and equality,” Goldberg said. “The
truth is a little messier than that.”

Why D.C.’s tech incubators struggle
Advisory calls for users
to update operating
systems if they can
BY
H AMZA S HABAN
A top federal government cybersecurity watchdog has issued an
advisory, warning users to update
their devices to protect against a
newly discovered vulnerability
that affects nearly every modern,
protected WiFi network.
The U.S. Computer Emergency
Readiness Team’s announcement
comes after a security expert at the
University of Leuven in Belgium
published findings that a widely
used encryption system for wireless networks could give attackers
an opening to steal sensitive information such as emails, chat histories and credit card numbers. It
would allow hackers to eavesdrop
on Internet traffic between computers and wireless access points.
The government organization also
referred users to a vulnerability
note published by Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute.
The findings are significant because of the wide range of devices
that could be affected.
“The attack works against all
modern protected Wi-Fi networks,” Mathy Vanhoef wrote on a
website he created to share his
research. “Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data.
For example, an attacker might be
able to inject ransomware or other
malware into websites.”
Vanhoef said that any WiFi-supporting device probably leaves itself vulnerable to this attack,
called KRACK, for Key Reinstallation Attack. “During our initial research, we discovered ourselves
that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by
some variant of the attacks,” he
noted on the website.
Cisco, Intel and Samsung were
among the companies whose
products were affected but have
since updated their devices.
In a statement, Microsoft said
the company “released security
updates on October 10th and customers who have Windows Update enabled and applied the security updates, are protected automatically. We updated to protect
customers as soon as possible, but
as a responsible industry partner,
we withheld disclosure until other
vendors could develop and release
updates.”
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment,
but Vanhoef noted that iOS and
Windows devices were not the
most vulnerable to the exploit. The
attack, however, is “exceptionally
devastating” for devices that run
Android 6.0, Vanhoef found.
Google said in a statement: “We’re
aware of the issue, and we will be
patching any affected devices in
the coming weeks.”
Vanhoef noted that even when
Internet users connect to secure
websites that use the HTTPS protocol, they may still be at risk.
“Although websites or apps may
use HTTPS as an additional layer
of protection, we warn that this
extra protection can (still) be bypassed in a worrying number of
situations,” he said.
While he acknowledged that
some of the attack scenarios discussed in his research are impractical to pull off, he said the bottom
line is that you should still “update
all your devices once security updates are available.”

Government-subsidized programs face financial, geographical obstacles
BY
A ARON G REGG
When the District’s financially troubled
1776 incubator merged with an out-of-town
counterpart recently, it became the latest star
of Washington’s tech scene to fade away after a
few years in the limelight. The sort of permanence that helped make Silicon Valley a top
technology hub has largely eluded the region’s
start-up incubators.
The 1776 merger followed closely on the
heels of a similar transition down the road at
Mach37, Northern Virginia’s publicly funded
cybersecurity accelerator, which said goodbye
to its leadership team in July after a deal to
take it private fell through. And the Maryland
Technology Council merged with another
organization and rebranded in January after
cycling through four chief executives in
eight years.
Both of the region’s government-subsidized
incubators — 1776 and Mach37 — had a
mandate to become self-sufficient and operate
under private ownership. But the people
involved in these initiatives say it was hard to
serve the local community while also remaining in the black.
Part of the problem is incubators’ core
constituencies are cash-strapped start-ups
with little money to spend on membership
fees.
“Accelerators generally aren’t able to meaningfully cover their operating costs off the
revenue they get from start-ups,” said Evan
Burfield, who was chief executive of 1776
until Oct. 16.
After its first year, the 1776 incubator
embarked on a slew of new initiatives de-
signed to build out other sources of income. It
tried to expand to Silicon Valley but quickly
divested its holdings after it found the region
already was saturated with co-working spaces. It opened a Dubai office in partnership
with an Emirati investment group, but it is
unclear whether that initiative will continue
under the incubator’s new ownership.
It even built out a software component of
its business through an incubator-focused
social media platform called Union, an effort
that has since been spun out as a separate
company.
Both 1776 and Mach37 tried selling corporate sponsorships, and had some success
getting deep-pocketed companies to pay for
co-branding arrangements and other partnerships. But turning a profit was a challenge,
much to the disappointment of investors.
“By the time you pay rent, salary and
program costs it becomes very hard to run
that in a profitable way,” said Donna Harris,
Burfield’s co-founder who left the organization last year. “I don’t mean that in terms of
making a killing, but just in terms of breaking
even.”
Others say the region’s geography presents
a challenge for running successful incubators,
which typically rely on a combination of
public and private buy-in. The fact that the
Washington metropolitan area spans two
states and the District complicates efforts to
arrange funding and build support.
State-run start-up investment programs
usually come with strings attached, such as
requiring the receiving start-up to establish
residence in the state for a period of time.
Regional cooperation on the matter is compli-
cated by the question of which region should
reap the benefits. In addition, elected leaders
typically want to see some return on their
investment quickly, to show good stewardship
of taxpayer dollars.
“The amount of time it takes to be able to
point to success when you’re investing really
early in companies just isn’t fast enough for
the political cycle,” said Rick Gordon, who
managed Mach37 until June. “For accelerators
who are founded in a political environment
it’s just really hard . . . the fact that they were
able to do it as long as they did was an
incredible success.”
Gordon tried to buy the incubator himself
over the summer but the deal fell through. He
said the relatively low management fees that
the incubator would get from its start-up
investments were not enough to cover the cost
of operations. Mach37 netted partnerships
with companies like General Dynamics and
SAP NS2, a U.S. subsidiary of software giant
SAP to try to make up the difference.
There are a few groups that have soldiered
on, largely by watching their overhead costs
and taking care not to spread themselves
too thin.
The Northern Virginia Technology Council
continues to be one of the region’s most
successful trade organizations under the
nearly 20-year leadership of Bobbie Kilberg,
and has sought to partner with the region’s
incubators rather than compete with them.
“We do partner with incubators and accelerators, and consider them resources that
help to enrich our technology ecosystem,”
Kilberg said in an email.

Teen-focused app TBH, newly acquired by Facebook, thrives on praise
To be honest, it’s all
about a positive vibe
with your friends
BY
H AMZA S HABAN
The app, which is available on
Apple iOS devices, has been
around only since August, in some
states, but its popularity has ballooned. TBH counts more than
5 million users who have sent more
than 1 billion messages among
themselves, according to the com-
Divide in aid

SUPPORT FROM A1
dent of programs for the District of
Columbia College Access Program,
a college advising group widely
known as DC-CAP. “Some of them
had more resources when they
were working, but now that they’re
retired it’s difficult. It’s a labor of
love.”
For some grandparents, helping
a grandchild earn a degree means
spending a few more years working. For others, it is a matter of
tapping into savings they had
squirreled away for the next stage
of their lives. Resources exist for
grandparents, but some of that aid
is not widely available and information can be hard to come by.
Nonprofit and government organizations are stepping in to help
grandparents navigate programs
designed to help them with child
rearing, especially as the need
grows. There is no definitive data
on the number of grandparents
paying their grandchildren’s college tuition. But with more grandparents serving in custodial roles,
higher-education costs are a looming concern.
Census Bureau data shows about
2.7 million grandparents are raising their grandchildren, up 7 per-
pany. It is the No. 1 free app on
iTunes Charts — ahead of YouTube, Snapchat and Instragram.
TBH’s sudden rise was enough
to grab Facebook’s attention (and
money). But what is TBH, and how
does it work?
TBH, short for “to be honest,”
prompts users to answer polls
about people they know, after they
give the app access to their contacts (this is required to use the
app). The polls come in bundles of
15 questions, and users select the
person they have in mind from
four choices. The questions cover
such items as notes of affection (“I
will marry them”), straightfor-
cent from 2009. A quarter of these
families are living in poverty.
Drug addiction and an increase
in women being incarcerated fuel
much of the growth in grandparents gaining custody, said Jaia Peterson Lent, deputy executive director of Generation United, a nonprofit group.
She said states are sending more
displaced children to be raised by
relatives because youngsters tend
to fare better with family members
than in foster care. The trouble is,
support for these families is far
from comprehensive.
Having a firm grasp on the support services available from the
outset can affect how grandparents
cover the costs of college in the long
run. The federal government established grants several years ago to
pay for programs that help caregivers in the child welfare system
access legal, financial or social services. These programs, however, exist in only about 20 states.
Nonprofits such as Generation
United are filling in some of the
gaps. The organization, in collaboration with the American Bar Association and Casey Family Programs, runs a website, Grandfamilies.org, with information and
resources organized by state.
There are even colleges offering
grandparents guidance. The University of Central Oklahoma, for
instance, hosts workshops on applying for scholarships and on financial planning for people raising
their grandchildren. The sessions
were a natural fit in a state with one
of the highest percentages of grandparents providing custodial care, in
ward compliments (“Freckles on
fleek”), endorsements and sarcasm (“Would drive to your house
and wake you up to tell you who
finally texted back”).
In turn, when friends pick you
as an answer, you get an anonymous notification that includes
the question, so you can see what
other people think of you.
Although users can submit their
own poll questions, TBH says it
reviews those entries and accepts
only submissions that are uplifting, not offensive, appropriate for
users 13 and older, and are funny
or interesting.
Anyone older than 13 can use
the app, but TBH targets teens and
their social networks, asking firsttime users to select their high
school grade and to identify their
school or college.
A spokeswoman for Facebook
said the social network is not disclosing the terms of the deal, but
TBH’s millennial co-creators — Nikita Bier, Erik Hazzard, Kyle Zaragoza and Nicolas Ducdodon — will
become Facebook employees,
based at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., and will
continue to work on TBH.

large part because of female incarceration rates, said Glee Bertram, a
professor of family life education at
Central Oklahoma.
“A majority of the grandparents
who attended had never gone to
college, so it was overwhelming for
them,” she said. “Some didn’t have
computer skills to start the application process, so we had our admissions officers walk them through it.
Many just needed to know there is
support out there.”
Even with the network of social
services and support groups, a significant divide exists in financial
assistance afforded to grandparents.
Those who adopt their grandchildren out of the foster care system or become licensed foster parents often receive money from the
state until the child turns 18. That
financial assistance can allow
CONTENT FROM U.S. BANK
The importance of financial literacy for a secure future
By Reba Dominski, Chief Social Responsibility Officer and President of the U.S. Bank Foundation
A piggy bank was
my very first experience with money. It
was simple. I knew
that you stuck coins
and bills through
the slot on the top.
But I didn’t know
what happened
to the money that
went into the bank. Was it supposed to stay
there? Could I spend it or did I have to save it?
The piggy bank is still most kids’ initial introduction to saving money. I bought each
of my children their own piggy bank when
they were babies. As a parent, I know the
critical role I play in teaching important
money lessons, and it doesn’t stop with
the piggy bank. It gets more challenging
as children come of age and start asking
questions about credit, investments and
even retirement.
My children, now 15 and 17 years old,
face a less certain financial future than I
or even my parents did, and they’ll need to
equip themselves for long-term financial
security. It’s never been more important
than it is now to guide children toward a
financially secure future. Even though wages are rising, the pace of growth remains
sluggish and the retirement programs
many Americans once counted on for their
golden years face an uncertain future.
The good news, though, is that all of us
can improve the security of our futures
through financial literacy. With a better
understanding of the basics of finance—
how to save, budget and invest—we can
increase both our earning potential and
our prospects for a solid financial future.
This past summer, my children both landed their first jobs and were excited to start
earning an income. It was fascinating to
watch them both bring home their first paycheck, only to find it was a lot less than
they had anticipated. That day we talked
about taxes, what they were and how that
money gets spent.
Understanding financial basics is critical,
particularly for younger people who are
just starting out and can make mistakes
features, Facebook appears intent
on capturing the new ways by which
young people are communicating
online. Facebook’s acquisitions of
Instagram and WhatsApp were attempts to connect with younger users, who have been drawn to alternative social networks.
TBH’s insistence on positivity —
and its social interactions that
hinge not on creating permanent,
searchable, self-identifying posts
but on offering anonymous compliments — may also play into
Facebook’s latest mission to build
a sense of community.
What is perhaps clearest is that
TBH is yet another channel where
that hamper their long-term financial success. For instance, U.S. Bank’s 2017 Student Financial Literacy Study found many
students misunderstand credit and what
affects their credit score. The majority of
students surveyed by the study, for example, incorrectly believed a delinquent loan
or credit card balance would be removed
from a credit report once it was paid off.
That misunderstanding could have a longlasting impact, affecting everything from
their ability to get a mortgage to the interest rate they pay for a credit card.
According to the study, as students build
their financial knowledge, the first place
they look is online, followed by bank
branches and financial advisors. We at
U.S. Bank understand that students may
want to learn at their own pace and on
their own schedule, so we’ve structured
our Student Union scholarship program in
a way that incentivizes students to learn.
Students that complete the financial education modules are eligible for $20,000,
$10,000 and $5,000 scholarships.
If the piggy bank was the first step for many
of us, it’s important to grow and evolve our
financial education as we progress through
our careers and our lives. Financial literacy is a topic we all have to work on every
day—it’s an ongoing education.
Banks like U.S. Bank have an important
role to play in ensuring access for all consumers to financial literacy programs. We
are working hard to ensure our financial
education programs are available and understandable so consumers can get the
tools they need to lay a stronger financial
foundation for the future.
grandparents to save for college,
said Sylvie De Toledo, founder of
Grandparents as Parents, an organization in California that supports grandparents. She said retired grandparents receiving Social
Security benefits can also have a
portion of that money set aside for
their adopted grandchild.
Bursch has saved the money she
received from the state after adopting her grandsons out of foster care,
creating a trust for the boys in the
event of her death. The boys came
to Bursch and her husband emotionally scarred and in need of love
and patience, she said. There were
rough patches, especially when the
boys’ parents and grandfather died,
leaving Bursch to care for the boys
by herself.
Children who have lived in foster
care are eligible for discounted tuition at some public colleges and
universities. They can qualify for
education and training vouchers of
up to $5,000 a year through the U.S.
Department of Health and Human
Services.
But for every child who enters
foster care, 20 are being raised by
relatives outside of the system and
without access to the benefits extended by state and federal authorities, according to the Annie E.
Casey Foundation. Many grandparents step in before child welfare
agencies get involved, and as a result are unaware they could become a licensed foster parent and
receive financial support. And others are never told about their options. Even when they are aware of
all their options, grandparents may
choose to avoid being monitored by
social workers.
“They’re balancing access to a
full range of financial support and
other services, with questions
about the level of engagement they
wish to have with the child welfare
agency,” Peterson Lent said.
“Grandfamilies may be fearful that
a child welfare agency will all of a
sudden decide to take the child.
There are a lot of things to weigh.”

dren — Damian, now 20; Lea, 18;
and Kayle, 16 — spent eight months
in foster care before the state of
Kentucky placed them with her in
2005. She said she never received
any state benefits because the children did not remain in the system
for long. Begay shared custody with
their father, her oldest son, as he
struggled with a drug addiction.
She took all three with her when
she relocated to Washington to
work as a policy analyst for the
Labor Department.
When Begay’s son was murdered
in 2010, she quit her job and moved
back to Kentucky with the kids.
And for the next few years, the
family had to live on the $3,000 a
month the children received in Social Security survivors benefits because Begay could not find work.
“We were denied food stamps
and public housing because the
kids received too much money
from Social Security,” said Begay,
60, who now lives in Frederick, Md.
“Doing all of this on my own was so
hard.”
By the time Damian was ready
for college, Begay landed a job at the
Department of Health and Human
Services in Washington. But Damian chose to stay in Kentucky and
enter Job Corps, a federal
career-training and employment
program. Now, he is considering a
career as a pharmacist and looking
to enroll in a tribal college. Because
he and his siblings are Navajo like
their grandmother and father, they
can qualify for grants, scholarships
or tuition waivers at several colleges and universities.
Navigating the higher education
system can be overwhelming for
grandparents who have gone years,
if not decades, without having to
help with applications and financial aid forms.
Reaching out to high school
counselors is vital, especially when
filling out the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid, known as
FAFSA, said Ross, from DC-CAP.
The federal government and colleges use the application to grant students access to more than $150 billion in grants, loans and workstudy money.
One of the problems grandparents face with the FAFSA is figuring
out who should be listed as the
parent on the form, Ross said. Most
of the students his advisers encounter who are living with their grandparents have not been adopted,
which means they must include the
tax information of their biological
parents. That can be difficult for
students whose parents are incarcerated or otherwise not in the picture.
In those cases, the Education Department recommends students
request that a college financial aid
office review their application. Administrators have flexibility to
grant students a waiver known as a
dependency override, but only on a
case-by-case basis. Schools are under no obligation to offer the exemption to students whose grandparents are their legal guardian.
Bursch’s grandson Gage did not
qualify for financial aid to attend
Los Angeles Valley College because
of the income she draws from her
annuities, she said. He was, however, allowed to register for classes
early and provided counseling on
campus because he was in the foster care system.
To keep costs down, Gage chose
to live at home while pursuing an
associate degree in kinesiology. After graduation in May, he plans to
transfer to California State University at Northridge to complete a
bachelor’s degree in the same field.
While Bursch has covered the
costs of community college, she
said her grandson will use the
$14,000 in the 529 college savings
plan that she and her husband established for him as a child. The
savings plan allows families to invest without the earnings being
taxed, so long as the funds are used
to pay for college expenses. The
money, she said, was not enough to
pay for four years of college, but it
will give the boys a chance of graduating without a lot of student debt.
“I’d tell everyone now to go talk
to them at the college and find out
what they can do for you. I didn’t
know to do that,” Bursch said. “I
wasn’t aware of what was out there,
and I suspect many grandparents
are in the same position.”

Does the chief justice fear gobbledygook, or is that baloney?
Chief Justice John
G. Roberts Jr. has
made it his
mission to try to
ROBERT
BARNES
convince the
American public
that the Supreme Court is
something unlike other
Washington institutions —
different from the gridlocked
mess across the street in the
Capitol, more disciplined and
respectful of its place in the
constitutional constellation than
the bellicose White House down
Pennsylvania Avenue.
The nine justices are not
Democrats or Republicans, he
often says, leaving unmentioned
the political process that got
each of them installed in their
lifetime appointments. They put
aside their personal and partisan
preferences and go where the
law and the Constitution lead
them, he says.
Roberts, beginning his 13th
year as the chief justice of the
United States, is usually selfconfident and sure-footed in his
task.
But in the biggest political
case of the Supreme Court’s
term, Roberts’s actions opened
him up last month more for
criticism than praise. In the
court’s examination of partisan
gerrymandering, Roberts
lamented the predicament the
court would be in if called upon
regularly to choose winners and
losers among Democrats and
Republicans.
Critics on both the left and
right called him out, saying it
sounded as though he were more
worried about polishing the
court’s reputation than fulfilling
its duty.
The case was about whether
Wisconsin’s Republican
legislative leadership had so
gerrymandered the state’s
legislative districts as to make
GOP control inevitable and
Democratic opposition
practically futile. In the first
election after the district lines
were drawn, Republican
legislative candidates got
48 percent of the statewide vote
but captured 60 of 99 State
Assembly seats.
The court’s decision could
reshape the nation’s politics.
Although the court has been
vigilant about guarding the
redistricting process against
racial gerrymandering, the
justices have never rejected a
state’s plan because it was too
partisan.
Roberts was skeptical that the
court had a role to play, because
the political redistricting process
might belong exclusively to the
people’s elected representatives.
That is not so unusual — the last
time the court considered the
issue, in 2004, four of the nine
justices said the court should
stay out of partisan redistricting.
And Roberts was also leery of
the mathematical test that

challengers had come up with to
try to measure when normal
politics became unconstitutional
bias. (One version is called the
“efficiency gap,” or EG.) That’s
not so unusual, either. There are
plenty of skeptics of the plan.
But Roberts’s real objection
seemed to be that forcing the
court to make such decisions
would put the justices in a nowin position and tarnish the
reputation that they — he — had
worked hard to burnish:
“We will have to decide in
every case whether the
Democrats win or the
Republicans win. So it’s going to
be a problem here across the
board. And if you’re the
intelligent man on the street and
the court issues a decision, and
let’s say, okay, the Democrats
win, and that person will say,
‘Well, why did the Democrats
win?’ ”
The answer that a
mathematical test found a way to
gauge when partisan

As quickly as anyone could say

criticism came from both left
and right.

blogger Jennifer Rubin wrote in
The Washington Post. “Especially

only ones who can fix this
problem. I guess they are part of
the problem.”
There was more.
In expressing his skepticism of
the test the challengers said the
court could use to decide when a
redistricting plan became an
outlier, Roberts went a little far
in his self-deprecation.
“The whole point is you’re
taking these issues away from
democracy and you’re throwing
them into the courts pursuant to
— and it may be simply my
ADVERTISEMENT
educational background, but I
can only describe as —
sociological gobbledygook,”
Roberts said.
No one has ever doubted
Roberts’s brain, and it’s unlikely
the Harvard graduate who
dazzled at Harvard Law School
was underserved by his
professors.
Paul Smith, the attorney for
the challengers, responded,
“Your Honor, this is — this is not
complicated.”
Justice Elena Kagan served up
the droll observation that if state
legislators could use enhanced
voter technology to draw maps to
lock in majorities for election
after election, surely judges
could use the same techniques to
determine when those plans had
gone too far.
And the American Sociological
Association weighed in on
Roberts as well, in a somewhat
snooty letter released publicly.
We “are particularly
concerned about a person of your
stature suggesting to the public
that scientific measurement is
not valid or reliable and that
expertise should not be trusted,”
wrote Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, the
association’s president. “What
you call ‘gobbledygook’ is
rigorous and empirical.”
He added, “Should you be
interested in enhancing your
education in this area, we would
be glad to put together a group of
nationally and internationally
renowned sociologists to meet
with you and your staff.”
That doesn’t seem likely.
Roberts, of course, has a point.
The Supreme Court has a
mandate from Congress to
review decisions about
redistricting from the lower
courts and either affirm or
reverse those decisions. The
court in recent years has been
drawn into redistricting battles
in Alabama, Arizona, Maryland,
North Carolina and Texas.
If the court decides charges of
partisan gerrymandering should
receive the same scrutiny as
charges of racial
gerrymandering, there will no
doubt be more challenges
making their way to the high
court.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy,
81, probably holds the deciding
vote in the case. But he may not
be around to review the
redistricting challenges that
would follow the 2020 Census.
It would be Roberts and the
court he heads that would be left
to apply the gobbledygook and
avoid the baloney.

Swift injustice
A new Justice Department plan could undermine the integrity of immigration judges.
A
or how quickly they decide them — a plan that the
National Association of Immigration Judges has
called a “death knell for judicial independence.”
Unlike other federal judges, immigration judges
are technically Justice Department employees. Currently, the collective bargaining agreement between
Justice and the judges’ association forbids evaluating
judges based on quotas. But the association says the
Executive Office of Immigration Review is working
now to remove that language from the contract.
The administration aims to speed up the work of
immigration judges, who now face a massive workload: The immigration court system is weighed
down with a record backlog of 600,000 pending
cases, and the average case takes roughly two years to
resolve. Yet pushing judges to resolve cases quickly to
meet performance standards could put judges in the
position of choosing between keeping their jobs and
the interests of fairness. Judges would end up
rushing through complex cases that require more
time to reach a quota. If the hurry were extreme
enough, a judge’s brisk handling of a case might not
Manila’s
mean streets
meet the minimum standards for constitutionally
required due process.
In fact, implementing quotas could actually have
the effect of jamming up the court system further.
Immigrants ill-served by judges struggling to meet
quotas would be more likely to battle the judges’
rulings, glutting federal appeals courts. The same
glut took place after a restructuring of the immigration appeals court in 2002 lowered the quality of
judging and led to a greater number of contested
cases.
Alongside its call for quotas, the Trump administration also requested that Congress set aside funding for 370 more immigration judges, almost double
the currently allotted number. While it’s not clear
whether an increase of that level is realistic, providing more resources to immigration courts would be a
much more effective means of tackling the backlog —
which both immigration hard-liners and immigrants’ advocates agree should be addressed. A
swifter process is in everyone’s interests. The solution is not to set the requirements of justice aside.

When legislators won’t compromise on whether
the government may force my daughter to bear a
child against her will, I’m grateful. The debate is
“politically toxic” because antiabortion individuals
do not believe that the rights of the pregnant woman
may ever, in her sole judgment, override those of her
fetus. This discomfort with women’s agency may be
why, in a column about abortion, George F. Will did
not use the word “woman” even once.

the country with rampant killings, fake news and
numerous accusations of corruption.”
On Oct. 10, Mr. Duterte made a decision to
effectively pull the 160,000-strong national police
off the drug war and turn it over to the Philippine
Drug Enforcement Agency, which has only about
1,800 officers. This suggested that the president may
be pulling back from the indiscriminate campaign
on the streets; Mr. Duterte said the drug agency
would be ordered to go after “big fish,” networks and
suppliers. Mr. Duterte made a similar shift in
January, then rescinded it five weeks later. The hope
is that this time he is serious.
His motivation may be, in part, President Trump’s
expected visit in November. Mr. Duterte, who spat
insults at President Barack Obama, has made a
determined effort to redirect Philippine foreign
policy toward China and Russia. Mr. Trump, who has
an unabashed affinity for crude strongmen, should
do what he can to bring Mr. Duterte back toward the
United States and discourage him from resuming
the extrajudicial drug war.
From the classroom to the courts
A
Based on Education Department data collected in
the 2011-2012 school year, researchers found that
Virginia was reporting students to the authorities at a
rate of about 16 for every 1,000 students; the national
average was 6. Just as striking, the report said, was
that the most frequent reporters were middle schools,
whose students are usually 11 to 14 years old. Nearly
half of criminal complaints were issued to students
younger than 14 — in some cases much younger.
Typically, the complaint lodged against students is
disorderly behavior, a catchall that can mean anything from a temper tantrum to a balled fist to a
brawl. State law doesn’t require that law enforcement
be notified of such conduct by minors, but many
Virginia schools do it anyway. In the state, and
nationally, students referred to law enforcement are
disproportionately African Americans and children
with disabilities. In Virginia, where blacks are 23 percent of the student population, they were nearly
40 percent of those referred from schools to juvenile
courts.

The Peace Cross should be allowed to stand
The Oct. 19 Metro article “Court: Md. memorial
violates Constitution” reported that a “federal appeals court . . . declared unconstitutional a towering
cross-shaped monument that has
marked a major intersection in
Prince George’s County for
90 years.”
In my view, the memorial,
known as the Peace Cross, is a

this memorial at Maryland Route

is a beautiful tribute to those who gave their lives for
us. Never have I thought that it was a religious

The impulse prompting schools to hire police has
spread since the massacre at Colorado’s Columbine
High School in 1999. It amounts to a massive overreaction on the part of educators who, though justifiably determined to maintain safety for students in
their care, ended up adopting hair-trigger policies. A
more level-headed approach would emphasize deescalation training for the police and security officers
who work in schools, diversion programs to deal with
relatively minor offenders without turning them over
to the courts, and clearer rules set by the schools
themselves.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) has spoken out forcefully
against disciplinary policies that criminalize conduct
once handled in school. A new state law is in place to
encourage local school boards to develop alternatives
to suspending students, including counseling, community service and mediation. That’s a promising
start. Lawmakers will have to keep the pressure on to
tamp down what amounts to massive overreaction on
the part of school authorities.

George F. Will made a reasonable case for the
House bill banning abortion after the 20th week.
But in his attack on the term “potential life,” he was
not paying attention to how modern fertility clinics
have overcome the earlier problems of low success vs.
catastrophic high-birth numbers. It’s because they
no longer implant non-viable fertilized eggs. The
practice now is to grow fertilized eggs as long as
possible in the petri dish, five days, before inspecting
them under a microscope and selecting only the good
ones for implantation.
It turns out that on average, for all ages and
considering the health of the women trying to become pregnant, only a minority of fertilized eggs
survive, and about half the time the reason for failure
is that the egg was non-viable at the time of ovulation.
The “Party of Science” to which Mr. Will referred
misses this, too. Today’s science seems to suggest that
it is reasonable to refer to fertilized eggs as “potential
life.”
Edward H. Takken, Alexandria
Psychologists strive to do good work
In Virginia, too many students get treated like criminals.
QUAINT idea about school discipline is that
students who are unruly and disobedient, or
who get in minor scrapes or hallway shoving
matches, will be dealt with sternly by teachers and principals. If only. In fact, in a staggering
number of such cases, the students, who are often
preteens in elementary and middle schools, are referred to police and the courts — a wildly disproportionate response that can stigmatize children at
school and, in some cases, be a stain on their records
for years.
In the most comprehensive study on the so-called
school-to-prison pipeline, published by the Center for
Public Integrity in 2015, Virginia schools were the
worst offenders, shunting disobedient kids to law
enforcement at nearly three times the national rate.
The state’s record amounted to a criminalization of
rowdiness and run-of-the-mill juvenile behavior, as
well as an abdication of responsibility, lack of training
or both on the part of adults who nominally run
things at public schools.
Regarding George F. Will’s Oct. 19 op-ed, “The
extremist ‘Party of Science’ ”:
The “Party of Science” thanks Mr. Will for his
inquiry about fetal development. He would be happy
to hear that much is known about this subject that
could inform our policymaking.
The circuitry for neurons involved in pain perception develops between 23 weeks and 30 weeks. Although legislators have latched onto reports of reflexive or hormonal responses to pain around 20 weeks,
this represents a poor understanding of the science
because these responses can be elicited by nonpainful stimuli and occur without cortical processing.
The problem here isn’t the state of the science; it is
legislators’ understanding of the science. If legislators were truly concerned about pain, they would also
consider the pain these babies experience on delivery, since most late-term abortions are performed
because of lethal fetal anomalies. The question a
compassionate person would ask is not “does a fetus
experience pain?” but “which is more painful for a
fetus with a lethal fetal anomaly, abortion or delivery?”
The Party of Science is willing and able to cite the
data in support of its positions. If Mr. Will and the
legislators making these laws are unable to understand the science, they should leave these decisions
to the physicians who do.
Katharine McNeill, Bronx, N.Y.
The writer is a neurologist at
Montefiore Medical Center.
In his predictable antiabortion piece, George F.
Will failed even once to mention the other party, i.e.,
the pregnant woman. Surely, she is entitled to all of
the legal protection afforded to other citizens. The
problem is that abortion is unique in all of jurisprudence (with the possible exception of a dispute
between conjoined twins) in that prior to the time
when the fetus is viable, neither party is independent
of the other. In any other case, the law can direct the
parties to stay apart.
In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court recognized this
and rendered a decision that was Solomonic in its
brilliance. Without invoking science, morality or
religion, the court ruled that the mutually exclusive
rights of the two parties should shift from favoring
the pregnant woman early in pregnancy to the fetus
later. The three stages (trimesters), while arbitrary,
recognize this and provide a rational basis for abortion law. It should be noted that the court’s ruling
transcends issues of cognition, pain perception and
even whether the fetus is a person at conception. This
continuing controversy has resulted from the failure
to acknowledge the fundamental insolubility of this
problem.

A glimmer of hope that Mr. Duterte is
ending an extrajudicial war on drugs.
RRATIC, PROFANE and crude, the president
of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, is a
person to whom the old adage applies:
Watch what he does, not what he says. In his
first year in office, he launched a nationwide
extrajudicial campaign against suspected drug dealers and users in which thousands of people were
killed, often by police or by vigilantes on motorcycles
without due process or protection of their rights.
Now, Mr. Duterte has said he may end the awful
campaign. Let’s hope he means it.
Mr. Duterte won the presidency last year with
fiery promises to go after drug abusers much as he
had pursued criminals as mayor of the southern city
of Davao, where armed vigilantes turned into death
squads. In his final campaign rally in 2016, he
declared if elected president, he would kill criminals
and “dump all of you into Manila Bay, and fatten all
the fish there.”
Once he was in office, a violent campaign unfolded in which at least 5,000 and perhaps many more
people were killed by police and by vigilante squads.
Mr. Duterte retained high public approval ratings
and brushed off international criticism of his brutal
methods.
But more recently, public outrage erupted after
closed-circuit video footage showed how a 17-yearold student, Kian Loyd Delos Santos, was dragged by
police toward where he was shot dead on Aug. 16.
The event triggered a large opposition rally and led
to an investigation by the National Bureau of
Investigation. The young man was one of 82 people
killed from Aug. 15 to Aug. 16, part of one of the
deadliest weeks in the drug war.
An early October poll suggested that Mr. Duterte’s
approval ratings were sagging and that he had
especially suffered among poor people who were
once a bulwark. Risa Hontiveros, an opposition
senator, told the Financial Times recently that the
poll numbers were an “ominous warning” and
added, “There are deep and widening rumblings of
discontent across different social classes and all over

TTORNEY GENERAL Jeff Sessions decried
the state of the immigration courts in remarks Oct. 12 before the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration
Review, lamenting “rampant abuse and fraud” in
asylum applications. As part of Mr. Sessions’s push
for an overhaul of the immigration system, the
department also plans to begin evaluating immigration judges on the basis of how many cases they
resolve. This proposal would do little to fix the United

undermine their integrity.
The Trump administration hinted at the plan in a
wish list of immigration policies, alongside commitments to constructing President Trump’s promised
border wall and withholding federal grants from
so-called sanctuary cities. According to reporting by

Justice Department “intends to implement numeric

Regarding Roy Eidelson’s Oct. 15 Outlook essay,
“Psychology is finally coming to grips with enabling
torture”:
Psychology benefits society and improves people’s
lives. It is critical to distinguish between the actions
of two rogue psychologists who designed and implemented the CIA’s notorious detainee torture program during the George W. Bush administration and
the profession of psychology as a whole.
I agree with Mr. Eidelson that “torture’s corrosive
effects are an assault on human dignity — and that
ultimately endangers and diminishes us all.” The
successes of the nation’s many hard-working and
dedicated psychologists should not be tarnished by
the shocking and unacceptable actions of two
renegade psychologists. The American Psychological Association stands firm against torture and in
support of the science and ethics that guide us to live
better lives.
The discipline is committed to doing good, as are
the vast majority of people engaged in the field.
Every day, psychologists take on urgent challenges
that plague our nation. Their work supports increased access to affordable, quality health care,
strives to prevent gun violence and shines a light on
police-community relations. They have been on the
ground in Houston and Puerto Rico in the aftermath
of horrific natural disasters and in Las Vegas and
Orlando after unthinkable human tragedy; they will
be there for years to help these communities
rebound. Their work is hard, and their goals are
ambitious. Psychology as a field is committed to
achieving them.

he most popular parlor game in
Washington right now is speculating who will replace Rex Tillerson
as President Trump’s next secretary of state, a thankless job in an
administration that has downgraded the
role of the State Department and diplomacy overall. But two qualified and apparently willing candidates have emerged.
When confronted last week with pervasive rumors that he is on the way out,
Tillerson pleaded ignorance. “Who in the
world is telling you that stuff ?” he asked
reporters from the Wall Street Journal. He
promised to stay in the job “as long as the
president thinks I’m useful.” Early this
month, he held a news conference to deny
reports that he had considered quitting.
Publicly, Trump has expressed confidence
in his top diplomat, despite reports that
Tillerson had called the president a “moron.”
Inside the White House, officials say
privately that Tillerson’s repeated disputes with various parts of the Trump
inner circle have made his long-term
survival untenable. The leading speculation is that he may depart after he has
served one full year, to save face and
complete the State Department reorganization he has publicly claimed as his
primary mission.
As several excruciating profiles have
detailed, Tillerson’s main legacy will likely
be a State Department depleted of talent,
with the lowest morale in decades and
playing a reduced role in the crafting and
implementation of U.S. foreign policy. His
successor’s primary mission will be to
reverse that trend. The top two contenders, Ambassador to the United Nations
Nikki Haley and CIA Director Mike
Pompeo, offer different paths for recovery.
Haley has been praised both externally
and within the Trump team during her
short tenure in New York City. She’s
credited with “getting it done” on matters
such as North Korea sanctions and toughening up the U.S. stance at the United
Nations. Unlike Tillerson, she was quick
to get a top-notch staff in place, which has
allowed her to be effective inside the
interagency process.
JABIN BOTSFORD/THE WASHINGTON POST
White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly at the daily news briefing at the White House on Thursday.
E.J. DIONNE JR.
Kelly’s humiliation is ours, too
T
he United States is in the
middle of a very unfortunate
experiment in how disoriented a great nation can become
before it loses its moorings entirely.
At times, politics seems fairly conventional with Republicans and
Democrats arguing about health
care and tax cuts, as they long have
done. But former presidents George
W. Bush and Barack Obama reminded us last week that there is nothing
normal about this moment. They
issued searing, overlapping condemnations of Trumpism without naming President Trump. Former commanders in chief of opposing parties
don’t do this sort of thing unless the
country faces an emergency.
Our disorientation is reflected further in the way honorable men and
women allow themselves to be
pushed into defending the indefensible and twisting noble concepts into
cheap and ultimately shameful talking points. These are designed to get
the president through one more
news cycle or around some controversy he could easily quell if he had
any familiarity with the words “I’m
sorry.”
In the realm of political commentary, the now-daily detonations set
off by a man who sees the common
good as the pursuit of suckers drown
out any serious discussion of the
problems his voters thought he
might try to solve.
True, there is a separate difficulty
created by his own party’s failure to
move beyond the politics of the 1980s
and that era’s popular belief that tax
cuts and reductions in government
social spending will overcome any
challenge, anytime, anywhere. A de-
With Rex Tillerson’s long-term
survival untenable, who is
likely to replace him at State?
Her appointment would foretell a State
Department that hews toward traditionally hawkish GOP positions, including
forceful advocacy for freedom and human
rights abroad. It could also mean a shift in
the current drive to mend relations with
Russia. Last week, Haley told the George
W. Bush Institute that Russian interference in U.S. elections amounted to “warfare.” Haley also defended funding for
diplomacy and free trade.
“We’re not going to see [diplomacy and
development funding] gutted, that’s just
the reality of it, because we can’t and the
president doesn’t want to,” Haley said. “I
don’t see us tearing up any [trade] deals. If
that was the case, we would have done it
already.”
Haley took a middle-of-the-road approach in deliberations on the new Iran
strategy, which ended up winning the day.
She has met with refugees in the Middle
East and is continuing her world tour this
week, heading to Ethiopia, South Sudan
and Congo. She looks like someone campaigning for a promotion.
But the Haley choice is risky for Haley.
She already has amassed the foreign
policy bona fides required for a future run
for president. Her physical distance from
the White House has allowed her to avoid
internal conflicts and act independently.
It’s not clear what she gains politically
from moving up to secretary of state.
Taking the job would be a huge gamble.
Should Haley move to Foggy Bottom,
her most likely replacement in Turtle Bay
would be deputy national security adviser
Dina Powell, according to reports. Powell
has been shrewd in staying out of the
spotlight while demonstrating her value
and effectiveness to Trump.
Pompeo would be a secretary of state
with deeper ties to Trump and views that
align more with those of the White House.
He is more hawkish on Iran than Haley is.
As he demonstrated in remarks last week,
he is willing to play down Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Pompeo briefs the president personally
several times a week, and the White House
likes his willingness to push the administration’s narrative. While his tendency to
be overtly political makes some uncomfortable at the CIA, it would be an asset at
the State Department.
Some reports suggest that if Pompeo
gets the State Department job, Sen. Tom
Cotton (R-Ark.) is in line for CIA director.
Cotton is the rare senator who has good
relations with Trump and the White
House team. His move to CIA could be a
stepping stone in his ambition for higher
office.
The State Department professional
corps would welcome either Haley or
Pompeo with open arms, but neither
would have an easy task. Unless they
clearly break with Tillerson’s approach
and stand up for diplomats and the work
they do, Washington will find itself speculating about yet another secretary of state
soon enough.

crepit ideology crowds out new approaches to new circumstances.
For all the talk about Trump being
something other than a Republican,
he always falls back on the party’s old
ideas because he has none of his own
beyond promising to build a big wall,
stop NFL players from kneeling during the national anthem and fix bad
trade deals while offering few details.
But we can’t even have predictable, if necessary, partisan and ideological debates. These are blocked by
self-involved spectacle and ruthless
attacks against any who raise their
voices to criticize the president.
We can try to resist being drawn
into this swamp of petty invective,
knowing that we are being pulled
away from the consequential questions. Yet doing so would mean overlooking the central fact of our political situation: that Trump is systematically sapping our democratic capacities through his routine behavior. As
Bush put it, “We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. . . . Argument turns too easily into
animosity. Disagreement escalates
into dehumanization.”
This is why all except the most
blind Trump partisans had to be
heartsick over the performance of
White House Chief of Staff John F.
Kelly on Thursday. The retired Marine Corps general, who devoted his
life to service and suffered stoically
when he lost a son in combat,
stepped out as a hatchet man against
Rep. Frederica S. Wilson.
It was Wilson, a Florida Democrat,
who revealed that the president told
the widow of Sgt. La David T. Johnson that the slain soldier “knew what
he signed up for.” Kelly could not
back up Trump’s claim that Wilson
had “totally fabricated” the president’s conversation. In fact, Kelly
seemed indirectly to confirm her
account. So he resorted to a vicious
rebuke of the African American congresswoman.
Kelly didn’t even have the decency
to use Wilson’s name, and he compared her to noisy “empty barrels.” It
was hard to hear him and not think
of Bush’s warnings about “dehumanization.” Kelly went on to give a false
account of gracious, bipartisan comments Wilson made at the dedication
of a Florida FBI building.
Thus is our world turned upside
down: A genuine patriot is reduced
to the role of propagandist for a boss
whose idea of sacrifice, as Trump
once explained on ABC News, is
running a business from which he
profited.
We are numbed to the squalor we
see daily. It’s common to hear the
president called a “disrupter.” But
unlike the tech-world heroes to
whom the label is typically applied,
he builds nothing, creates nothing
and moves a majority of our fellow
citizens only toward rage or a sense
of helplessness.
But helplessness is not an option,
and rage alone will change nothing.
By speaking up, Bush and Obama
have sent a signal that we cannot sit
by and allow our system of selfgovernment to disintegrate before

ROBERT J. SAMUELSON
A budget primer for the weary
I
t’s that time of year again when
Congress debates the federal budget.
For most Americans, it’s a turnoff.
The dollar amounts are monstrous
— trillions, not billions. The vocabulary
of government finances (budget-speak)
is baffling. Little wonder people tune out.
For the weary and confused, I offer a
brief budget primer below. Here’s what I
think is important and why.
(1) Over recent decades, there has
been a vast reordering of national priorities, away from defense and toward
the welfare state.
From the 1950s through the late 1960s,
defense spending often constituted nearly or more than half the government’s
budget. No more. For fiscal 2017, defense
represented about 16 percent of the
$4 trillion budget, a share that continues
to fall. In its place are payments for the
elderly and health care. In fiscal 2017,
spending on Social Security, Medicare
and Medicaid — the three largest programs aiding the elderly — totaled about
$2 trillion, or half the budget.
(2) There is a huge gap between what
Americans want from government and
what (so far) they’ve been willing to pay
in taxes — the gap being persistent
annual deficits.
Over the next decade (that is, from
2018 to 2027), the government will spend
$53 trillion and collect $43 trillion in
taxes and revenue, according to the latest
projections by the Congressional Budget
Office (CBO). At times, budget deficits
can be blamed on economic recessions,
which diminish tax revenue. But that’s
not the case now or usually. Unemployment is 4.2 percent, and the CBO’s
projections don’t assume a future recession.
(3) When the economy is not in
recession or the early stages of recov-
ery, the government should balance its
budget.
The main reason is political. Americans should balance the pain of taxes
with gains from government. If people
want big government, they should pay
for it. If they dislike higher taxes, they
should cut government. This was the
tradition until the Kennedy-Johnson
years in the 1960s, when deficit spending
became popular. Since 1961, we’ve had
deficits in all but five years. Spending
discipline has eroded. Government is an
open-ended agency for good works and
special interests.
We need to come to terms
with these pressures rather
than ignore them.
(4) Given the magnitude of existing
and projected deficits, there is no plausible rate of economic growth that, if
attained, would balance the budget.
This means we cannot afford the
Trump tax cut if it loses any revenue; the
idea that it will “pay for itself” looks like
wishful thinking — nice if it happens, but
the odds are against it. Nor can we afford
the Democratic-liberal equivalent:
Hands off Social Security and other
subsidies for the elderly. But that’s where
the money is. If we tried to balance the
budget without any cuts to “entitlements,” the needed tax increase would be
roughly 25 percent. Similarly, if we loaded all the spending cuts onto other
programs, we’d have to eliminate the
Pentagon. Its budget is about $600 billion in 2017, close to the deficit. Or we
could abolish all domestic discretionary
programs (the Federal Aviation Administration, school aid, federal courts, the
FBI, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention . . . and many more). Their
collective spending is also around
$600 billion.
(5) None of this precludes running
deficits when the economy is in recession or the country faces a national
emergency (a war or pandemic, for
instance).
Indeed, one reason for pursuing balanced budgets in good times is to ensure
that high debt levels don’t make it harder
to borrow when unanticipated economic
or geopolitical events leave us no choice.
Changes should be gradual, but one
thing is certain: The choices will get
harder. More baby boomers will retire;
their health costs will remain stubbornly
expensive. These pressures are slowly
driving federal spending, taxes and
budget deficits higher. Other programs
are increasingly threatened. This is the
crux of the budget story.
If you’ve gotten this far, you can sense
my bias. I think we need to come to terms
with these pressures rather than ignore
them — the typical response of politicians both left and right. They take
refuge in familiar proposals that please
their supporters but evade the new economic and social realities we face.
What is government for? What could
be eliminated without much loss to the
nation? Is the expanding welfare state
shrinking our military in ways that make
us more vulnerable? Older Americans
are wealthier and healthier than ever.
How should we remake retirement to
reflect this without shredding the safety
net?
Seven years ago, I wrote that these
were good questions awaiting good answers. We’re still waiting.
t’s no surprise that when President
Trump shot back at Sen. John
McCain (R-Ariz.) last week, he
failed to engage the substance of
McCain’s argument.
“Yeah, well I hear it. And people have
to be careful because at some point I
fight back,” Trump said in his usual
playground style. “I’m being very nice.
I’m being very, very nice. But at some
point I fight back, and it won’t be
pretty.”
But make no mistake: The challenge
that McCain threw down a week ago,
and that former president George W.
Bush joined Thursday, is very much
about an idea. It is about whether
democracy, on the defensive around the
world, can recover its confidence. That
in turn depends in large part on
whether the United States will honor
what McCain called “the obligations of
international leadership and our duty
to remain ‘the last best hope of earth.’ ”
It’s not easy to fathom the extent to
which authoritarianism has been gaining ground, and liberty slipping,
around the globe for the past decade,
after years of movement in a more
positive direction. On the same day that
McCain spoke, as he accepted the 2017
Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center, I happened to be at a
seminar at the Hoover Institution in
Palo Alto, Calif., that brought the trend
into sharp relief.
Larry Diamond, a Hoover and Stanford University democracy expert, said
research shows more clearly than ever
that democracy is associated with economic growth, personal freedom and
civil liberties, and transparency and
reduced corruption. He said polls show
that demand for democracy remains
high, including in regions of Africa
where many governments fail to deliver.
Yet, Diamond said, the world is
experiencing a “deepening democratic
recession” characterized by fewer nations living freely, as measured annually by Freedom House; by increasing
power projection from Russia and
China; by the breakdown of democracy
from Turkey to Thailand to Hungary;
and by a “wave of illiberal populism”
and a “decay of democratic values and
self-confidence in the U.S. and Europe.”
Diamond recently received a poignant message from a civic leader in
Uganda, where President Yoweri Museveni, in power since 1986, is amending the constitution so he can extend
his rule still longer.
“Members of the armed forces entered parliament last week and beat up
MPs who were protesting the bill to lift
the age limit,” the activist wrote. “It
appears to me the whole region is in a
steep democratic recession, partly because of the loud silence from their
western allies.
“In the past, the state was a little
reluctant to be this brute and violent
and had some measure of shame,” the
message continued. “It is all gone.”
You can debate the causes of this
democratic decay, which obviously did
not begin with Trump. Blame Bush’s
invasion and bungled occupation of
Iraq; President Barack Obama’s abandoning Syria to its grisly fate; or deeper,
underlying trends of wage stagnation,
economic inequality, fracturing social
media.
But Trump’s admiration for strongmen and contempt for democratic values has accelerated the trend and
shocked much of the world. Kori
Schake, a Republican defense expert
and Hoover fellow, said at the same
seminar that the global anxiety today
reminds her of what she was hearing
from allies after the 9/11 attacks: People
“are a little bit scared that America is
becoming a different place than they
thought they knew.”
Many Americans are worried about
that, too. When I repeated Schake’s
comment to Michael McFaul, a Hoover
and Stanford scholar who served as
Obama’s ambassador to Russia, he said
he is “optimistic about our ability for
renewal as a democratic society.”
But when it comes to global leadership, McFaul was less of an optimist.
“The retrenchment period began under
Obama, let’s be clear,” he said. “Trump
is a more extreme version. That I fear
may be permanent.”
The good news is the United States
has hardly tried to counter the authoritarian offensive — which means that, if
we stirred ourselves to act, we might yet
shift the momentum. That is clearly
what the old lions of the Republican
Party are hoping for.
“For more than 70 years, the presidents of both parties believed that
American security and prosperity were
directly tied to the success of freedom
in the world,” said Bush. “And they
knew that the success depended, in
large part, on U.S. leadership.”
“We will not thrive in a world where
our leadership and ideals are absent,”
said McCain. “We wouldn’t deserve to.”
The sad news is how few Republican
leaders can bring themselves to defend
traditional American ideals in the
same way. Unless they do, the democratic recession will be increasingly
likely to shift from cyclical phenomenon to the onset of something much
scarier.

n the Great Hall of All Saints Church
in Chevy Chase, Md., the members of
Boy Scout Troop 52 recently planned
a trip to Shenandoah National Park.
They talked about what clothes to
wear, what food to bring and their campsite’s expected elevation.
And, as usual, they recited the Boy Scout
law. But it wasn’t just boys participating in
the meeting and preparing for the trip —
girls were a part of the group too.
While the Boy Scouts of America announced on Oct. 11 that it will be fully
inclusive for girls for the first time in its
nearly 100-year history, Troop 52 may be
one of the few groups that already knows
what inclusion looks like. Though the girls
are technically part of a Venture Scout
crew, which is a co-ed program, they’ve
been participating in activities alongside
the boys since 1997.
“The rest of the world is going to catch
on to what we’re doing here,” Scoutmaster
Will Stone, 55, told the group during a
recent meeting.
This is 15-year-old Cadyn Harrington’s

she joined after deciding that her Girl
Scout troop was no longer a good fit for her
interests. Since joining the group, Cadyn
said there isn’t anything separating her
from the boys — aside from the different
uniforms and rank advancements.
“It’s a really cool experience because
you’re out with the girls doing your own
thing, but you’re also interacting with
guys,” she said. “We’re just a part of the
troop.”
In recent years, Boy Scouts of America
has changed membership rules, lifting the
ban on openly gay scouts and troop leaders
and allowing transgender boys.
Even with the latest change, Lidia SotoHarmon, the chief executive of Girl Scouts
Nation’s Capital, says she thinks Girl
Scouts will continue to be the best choice
for many.
Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital serves
1.8 million girls in the District and counties
in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia
with a program that is “tailor made for
girls,” she said. A co-ed program, Soto-Harmon argues, benefits boys more than girls.

More than 2 years ago, Danielle Meitiv made national headlines as the “free-range mom”
after allowing her two young
children to walk home alone
from a Silver Spring park. Meitiv
and her husband were charged —
then cleared — in two neglect
cases.
But Meitiv still describes the
nickname as a “badge of honor,”
especially when stopped on the
street by fans (and critics) who
say, “You’re that mom!” It is a
reputation she is carrying with
her in her latest venture: running for an at-large seat on the
Montgomery County Council in

Tangling with county officials
over whether her children
should have been more closely
supervised “showed me what it
feels like to be on the other end of
an unresponsive bureaucracy,”
Meitiv said. “That’s not how
government should feel to the
people it serves.”
Meitiv has plenty of company
in the still-growing field of candidates vying for the council’s
four at-large seats. Three of those
seats are being vacated by Democratic council members who are
barred from running again because of the county’s new term
limits law: Marc Elrich and

both running for county executive — and Nancy Floreen. Hans

Misrepresentation of research spells trouble for approach to teaching little ones
Three Texas
researchers
spent a year
watching and
then recording
Hispanic firstJay
graders from
Mathews
low-income
families as they
experienced an
unusual approach to learning.
They were encouraged to
initiate projects, ask questions
without raising their hands,
give feedback to one another,
and decide where and with
whom to work.
This method has proved
effective in Montessori
classrooms worldwide for more
than a century. It is still
relatively uncommon in the
United States, but it worked in
the Texas school. The students
eventually scored 30 percentile
points above similar children
in ordinary classes.
So the researchers were
stunned at the negative
reaction when they showed the
video to first-graders who had
not been taught that way. What
they found casts troubling light
on one of the most influential
educational research findings
ever.
The first-graders shown the
video “seemed to think the
learning was terrible,” said
researchers Jennifer Keys
Adair, Kiyomi Sánchez-Suzuki
Colegrove and Molly E.
McManus in the fall issue of
the Harvard Educational
Review. They all agreed that
“the children in the film should
be less noisy, more still and
much more obedient to have
any chance of being good
learners.”
One boy said the right way to
learn was to “keep your mouth
zipped, eyes watching . . . and
ears listening!”
Their teachers told the
researchers they liked the new
approach but stuck with
traditional methods because
they didn’t think bilingual
children from low-income
backgrounds could handle it.
Why? They didn’t have
enough vocabulary, the
teachers said. “In school after
school, we heard educators
repeat that parents did not talk
to their children enough or give
them the vocabulary they
needed to be successful in
school.”
The researchers, who work at
the University of Texas at
Austin and Texas State
University, knew where that
idea came from. Few studies
have been reported as widely as
the 1995 work of University of
Kansas psychologists Betty
Hart and Todd R. Risley.
Working with 1,318
observations of just 42
children, Hart and Risley
concluded that in their first
four years, impoverished
children heard 13 million
words on average, compared
with 45 million heard by
children of affluent parents.
The early advantage in word
exposure correlated strongly
with better language and
literacy skills five or six years
later.
In a 2003 article, Hart and
Risley said “the risk to our
nation and its children” made

inappropriate to honor a Confederate cavalry commander who
fought to preserve slavery. The
“keepers” — people who want Stuart’s name to remain on one of the
district’s most racially diverse
high schools — argue that renaming the school amounts to obliterating history.
The Fairfax County School
Board voted three months ago to
drop the name, but that hardly
ended the controversy. Picking a
new name has been no less
fraught.
In a nonbinding ballot in September, more voters supported
calling the school “Stuart” than
any other option, which renaming
proponents attacked as a false
compromise and no change at all.
Divisions form
After a white supremacist
walked into a South Carolina
church and murdered nine black
parishioners on a June evening in
2015, Stuart students, parents and
alumni in Fairfax began agitating
for a name change. They were
boosted by the Hollywood star
power of actress Julianne Moore
and producer Bruce Cohen, both
J.E.B. Stuart graduates.
The pair started an online petition that generated close to
40,000 signatures.
But that was only the start. A
committee was formed, but members couldn’t agree on a path forward.
One of the committee members, Debbie Ratliff, doesn’t blame
the district’s handling of the process for the charged community
debate that ensued.
“The level of toxicity would
have been the same,” she said. “We
all feel very passionate about this.”
The school board finally voted
in July, deciding 7 to 2 to rename
the school. As part of that vote, the
board agreed to consider — “in a
spirit of compromise” — stripping
the initials “J.E.B.” and calling the
school “Stuart High.”
The contenders
On a Saturday in August, hundreds of community members
filled the Stuart auditorium to
hear and offer suggestions for a
new name. Fliers advocating for
Barbara Rose Johns, who as an
African
American
teenager
fought for school integration,
were distributed by community
members outside the auditorium.
Kenneth Longmyer, whose
daughter is a Stuart student, was
among those who advocated for
Rose Johns — appropriate, he
said, because Rose Johns was a
woman of color.
“We thought it was high time to
recognize groups that had been
ignored or overlooked when
schools were being named,” he
said.
Speakers lined the aisles of the
auditorium for hours to voice support for one name or another. A
document was projected on a
large screen, tracking every written suggestion. Some, such as
“Schooly McSchoolface” and
“Triggered Snowflake,” appeared
to mock the process.
A week later, the community
vote — which was limited to one
vote per household in the school
attendance area — was held and a
list of more than 70 suggestions
was whittled to five. Superintendent Scott Brabrand forwarded
those selections to the board.
They were, in order of popularity: Stuart; variations of Thurgood
Marshall, the first black Supreme
Court justice; Rose Johns; Peace
Valley, the street on which the
high school sits; and Louis Gonzaga Mendez Jr., a decorated
World War II Army colonel and
longtime Fairfax resident.
Name-change proponents are
quick to argue that the sum of
votes favoring something other
than “Stuart” outnumbered those
who wanted to keep a variation on
the old name.
“Everyone who doesn’t want
the name change voted for Stuart,” said Cohen, the Hollywood
producer. “It’s absurd, because
the vote was to change the name,
and Stuart is not a name change.”
Supporters of a new moniker,
including Cohen, have generally
rallied around Marshall, Rose
Johns and Mendez. They view the
renaming as an opportunity to
have the Falls Church school better reflect its diversity.
The school is 54 percent Hispanic, 22 percent white, 13 percent Asian, 9 percent black and 2
percent multiracial, according to
Virginia Department of Education data.
The number of Hispanic students is one reason Tina Mendez
Morgan and her brother, Louis G.
Mendez III, believe that their father’s name is the most fitting.
Mendez, who died in 2001, was of
Mexican American, Native American and Spanish descent, they
said.
anti-poverty efforts to change
children’s lives “more urgent
than ever.”
For 35 years, I have covered
educators trying to raise
achievement for low-income
children. They told me the
Hart-Risley findings meant
children’s language experiences
had to be enriched as early as
possible, essentially from birth,
and at every grade after that.
Apparently, many people in
education didn’t get that
message. Much more research
and outreach is necessary.
I had no idea educators were
misinterpreting the Hart-Risley
conclusions as a warning
against ambitious methods
such as those in the video. The
Texas researchers have so far
found this misunderstanding in
only the five schools they have
studied, but it is deep and
consistent enough to suggest
that the problem is widespread.
Risley died in 2007, Hart in
2012. University of Kansas
researcher Dale Walker, their
close associate, told me they
would be “extremely
“The Hispanic community and
the student body needs a Hispanic
role model,” Mendez Morgan said.
“I just think that’s the right thing
to do.”
The Mendez family hadn’t paid
much attention to the renaming
imbroglio. They were pulled into
the clamor after one of Mendez’s
adult children learned that his
name had been nominated. Since
then, Mendez Morgan and her
brother have campaigned for
their father.
Col. Mendez graduated from
the U.S. Military Academy at West
Point, N.Y., in 1940. He was a
battalion commander in the
Army’s 82nd Airborne “All American” Division during World War
II.
After a decorated military career, he worked as an educator
and for what became the Education Department. Several of his 12
children attended Stuart.
“Not only did he have this stellar career in the Army, but . . . he
was involved in education,” Mendez Morgan said.
Criticism of the process
Opponents of the renaming say
they, too, have been wounded by
invective from their neighbors.
One former Stuart student encountered such a “hostile environment” inside the high school
after opposing the renaming that
his father transferred him to another school, according to a lawsuit filed by Fairfax residents
against the school district over its
renaming policy.
Those residents argued that the
regulation was “vague and ambiguous,” resulting in “arbitrary and
capricious” actions by the school
board, according to court papers.
“The regulation is unconstitutionally vague and raises equalprotection issues,” said lawyer H.
Jay Spiegel, who is representing
the residents.
Denise Patton, a resident who
disheartened that their
research was being
misinterpreted and
misrepresented for what
appears to be an excuse to not
provide young students with
the educational content they
need to be successful.”
The Texas researchers
critique how the Hart-Risley
study was conducted as well as
how it has been interpreted.
But their most compelling
finding is the need to help
teachers adopt the student-led
learning they found worked so
well. The classroom dialogue
and sharing in their video are
essential for building
vocabulary, but “when
classrooms are too rigid,
controlled and task driven,
students cannot initiate and
continue conversations with
their peers,” they said.
It is hard to think of
anything more disheartening
than denying 6-year-olds a
chance to be enriched by a
stimulating program for fear
their vocabularies aren’t good
enough. I have never
encountered educational
research so distorted, to such
ill effect.

One suggestion to replace
J.E.B. Stuart is Army Col. Louis
G. Mendez Jr., above in 1961, a
longtime Fairfax resident.
“What was the point
of a community vote
if we weren’t
going to listen
to the vote?”
Elizabeth Schultz, a Fairfax
County School Board member
expressing concern about the
renaming process
hopes the lawsuit is successful,
said those who have taken issue
with the renaming are concerned
about finances. It would cost
about $512,570 to replace school
gear if the school were called “Stuart” and about $800,620 for a
complete name change.
“The big concern for the name
change has nothing to do with the
Confederacy,” she said. “It’s money.”
The school board’s renaming
vote will proceed despite the lawsuit, according to a district
spokesman.
The new name must be in place
by 2019. The board can heed the
community’s preferences — or
not.
At least two board members
said during a work session earlier
this month that they favored naming the school after Marshall. Others said that would conflict with
the existing George C. Marshall
High School in Falls Church. One
board member said she would
support “Stuart”; others said, unequivocally, they would not.
School board member Elizabeth Schultz, who represents the
Springfield District, expressed
concerns about the process.
“What was the point of a community vote if we weren’t going to
listen to the vote?” she asked. “If

Whatever the cause, public college students paying more of education costs
Complaints about

calculating the
price of college
these days, the exercise has
become more complicated
compared with just a decade
ago.
Tuition at four-year public
colleges, which historically had
always been well below the sticker
price of private colleges, has risen
more than 100 percent in real
dollars since 2001, after taking
inflation into account. Meanwhile,
the discounts offered by private
colleges on their prices are now
above 50 percent on some
campuses, bringing their “nettuition prices” — that is, what
students actually pay — closer to
public schools. And the gap
between in-state and out-of-state
tuition prices charged by public
campuses has grown significantly
in many states as colleges see outof-state students as a critical
revenue source.

Then there is the news out of
Pennsylvania this past week that a
4-month-old state budget impasse
might lead the state-related
campuses — Penn State, Temple,
Lincoln and the University of
Pittsburgh — to eliminate lower
tuition prices altogether for instate students.
Leaders at those four
Pennsylvania schools blame state
lawmakers for bringing their
institutions to the brink of what
would be a hefty tuition increase —
about $10,000 at Penn State alone.
Since 2000, lawmakers have been
chipping away at taxpayer
appropriations to the Pennsylvania
schools, which have seen their
share decline by some $4,000 per
student. Average tuition revenue
increased by $5,880 per student
over the same period.
The story is similar in other
states: Appropriations to public
colleges are cut, or at the best,
remain flat, and then tuition prices
go up. That has resulted in a
narrative repeated among public
university officials nationwide that
as states get out of the business of
higher education, students are
shouldering more of the cost of
their own education.
But the precise impact of state
budget cuts on student tuition has
never really been clear — a drop in
one doesn’t usually lead to an
equal increase in the other.
“There’s this accepted narrative
that is repeated everywhere from
Capitol Hill to state legislatures
with very little evidence,” said
Jason Delisle, a resident fellow at
the right-leaning American
Enterprise Institute. He found only
three studies addressing this
question over the last two decades.
“Anywhere else in higher
education, few people would make
the assertions they are making
with that little evidence,” he added.
The body of research on the
topic is slowly growing, however,
as two studies in recent months
have attempted to answer the
question about whether state
budget cuts are to blame for higher
tuition prices. One, by the
American Enterprise Institute,
found that tuition prices at public
institutions rise by only $5 for
every $100 cut from direct
subsidies per student. The other, in
the journal Economics of
Education Review, found the passthrough rate is about $25 for every
$100 cut.
Although the two studies landed
on somewhat different numbers,
Delisle said the spread between the
two still shows that a majority of
tuition increases are not tied to
cuts in state budgets. “There’s
something else going on with
tuition that is out of the hands of
state legislators,” he said.
The author of the second study,
Douglas Webber, a Temple
University economics professor,
told me that calculating the cost of
state budget cuts on students is
difficult because multiple factors
influence tuition prices. In some
states, college leaders are limited
by law in how much they can
increase tuition; in other
instances, they might decide to
hold the line on tuition by
trimming their own budgets first
or raising more money through
private sources.
While it might not be clear who
is to blame for higher tuition
prices, there is no doubt that
students at public colleges are
shouldering more of the burden of
paying for their education,
whatever the reason. It used to be
that higher education was seen as
a public good supported by
taxpayers. The renowned
University of California system was
tuition-free for state residents until
the late 1960s. As late as 2001,
when I covered the University of
North Carolina system as a
reporter, tuition and fees across
the system were about $2,000 a
year (today, tuition at the flagship
Chapel Hill campus is about
$8,900).
Nowadays, higher education is
seen as a private good paid for by
individuals. This massive shift in
public policy largely happened
without much debate. A while
back when I asked a legislator in
Oregon if it was appropriate for
students at public colleges to pay
$40,000 for four years of college,
the response I got was this: “Sure,
that’s the price of a new car.”
What’s notable is that increases

in public college tuition have
mostly come at the hands of state
lawmakers and higher-education
leaders who themselves benefited
from low tuition rates at state
universities when they earned
degrees. In most states, tuition
decisions have not only come
without much debate, but also
without much of a long-range plan
for the future of public higher
education: Who should it serve?
Who should pay for it?
Instead, colleges and lawmakers
have limped along patching
together short-term strategies,
such as increases in out-of-state
enrollment, to bring in more
revenue. Tuition has too often
turned into the balance-wheel of
state finances, the go-to source for
dollars when budgets for states or
universities didn’t quite even out
at the end of the day.
It’s unclear how much longer
both groups can use tuition as that
lever they pull every year, and we

D.C.’s new youth program targets repeat runaways for intensive interventions
YOUTHS FROM B1
ing multiple times, police said.
The new program, called
Strengthening Teens Enriching
Parents (STEP), began in September and will focus on helping
families once those children or
teens are back home. By preventing future runaways, program
officials say they hope to keep the
District’s young people out of
potentially dangerous situations
on the city’s streets.
Families who choose to participate in the voluntary program
will be provided with resources,
including counseling, to resolve
whatever issues are compelling
the youths to leave home in the
first place, officials said. People
who work with runaways said
they have seen financial stress,
mental health issues, complicated family dynamics and other
concerns play a role.
“There’s things that lead up to
this point, and that’s what we
need to focus our attention on,”
said Michelle Caron, captain of
the D.C. police’s Youth and Family
Services Division, which handles
juvenile missing person cases.
In the District, parents don’t
have to wait a certain length of
time to report their child missing.
They can call 911 immediately.
Most cases are closed within
24 hours, Caron said. When the
D.C. police department began
posting photos of missing youths
to its social media accounts in
March, its goal was to solicit the
public’s help in ensuring youths
are located quickly and safely, she
said.
Instead, many interpreted the
posts as modern-day milk cartons, each documenting the face
of an abducted child.
Though, according to police,
the posts didn’t signify an uptick
in missing youth, the public outcry that followed led Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) to pledge more
resources toward the city’s missing youth.
Caron, whose department has
since received five additional officers, said the attention has allowed those who work with the
city’s most vulnerable youth to
“get through some bureaucracy”
and coordinate their efforts.
As a part of the new program,
officials from multiple city agencies, including the Department of
Human Services, the Department
Before the STEP
program, runaway
“kids basically had to
scream to get someone
to pay attention.”
Sheila Clark, chief of programs
for Sasha Bruce Youthwork
of Behavioral Health and the
Child and Family Services Agency, participate in daily conference
calls with the police department.
During the calls, officials discuss
youths recently reported missing
and arrange plans to support the
affected families moving forward.
From the phone calls, STEP
program staff maintain a database of all the city’s missing
youths, even after they’ve been
found. That data will enable the
program to target those with repeat incidents for more intensive
interventions, said Hilary Cairns,
deputy administrator for youth
programs at the Family Services
Administration in the Department of Human Services
Program staff, including licensed counselors and social
workers, provide services at
youths’ homes and pay regular
visits to their schools. For each
family, the program lasts for 90
days, with up to 90 days of followup support, Cairns said. The services can include linking families
with mental health or substance
abuse services or working with
schools on issues, including truancy or behavioral problems.
Sherri Watkins said she has
seen how that kind of support can
help. In May, her 13-year-old
daughter ran away from their
Southeast D.C. home for the third
time since the beginning of the
year.
“My child’s picture was on TV.
My child’s picture was on social
media. I couldn’t believe that it
was happening to me,” Watkins
said.
After D.C. police found the girl,
the city offered more help.
In the past, Watkins said she
had struggled to find effective
mental-health care for her daughter, who has had behavioral issues
since she was a toddler. With the
support of the Department of
Human Services, which connected the family to mental-health
professionals, Watkins said her
daughter was diagnosed with a
behavioral disorder. She now
takes medication and has a formal support plan at school. At
home, a mentor from the department visits her twice per week.
Since the support began, Watkins said, her daughter hasn’t run
away again.
STEP program officials say
they will provide more families
with similar help.
As a part of the program, the
city is partnering with Sasha
Bruce House, the District’s only
short-term shelter for homeless
youth, to provide emergency
housing for teens in crisis, officials said. Youths between the
ages of 13 and 17 with tense home
situations can find respite at the
shelter in Northeast, with a parent’s permission, for up to three
weeks, according to Sheila Clark,
chief of programs for Sasha Bruce
Youthwork, the nonprofit that
runs the shelter.

Both he and tech entrepreneur
Alec Ross, a political newcomer
who entered the race in April, are
blanketing social media with announcements and comments and
routinely hold Q&A’s on Facebook.
Both have paid communications
staff to promote their public appearances, which some of the other campaigns have not done.
Most of the others also are less
active on Twitter and Facebook, a
social media platform that played
a key role in Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s victory in 2014.
State Sen. Richard S. Madaleno
Jr. (Montgomery), who entered
the race in July, has swiped at
some of Jealous’s publicity. After
Jealous touted his plan for college
affordability at an event featuring
a live-streamed speech from Sanders this month, Madaleno criticized Jealous’s proposal as lacking
specifics, adding that he has used

Six of the eight candidates for the Democratic nomination in the
Maryland gubernatorial race discuss their positions during a
recent forum. Democrats will need substantial resources to battle

been held in Montgomery County.
But fundraising is their most
urgent task.
With Hogan sitting on a war
chest that topped $5 million earlier this year, political experts say
Democratic hopefuls will need
substantial resources to compete
for the primary and have a shot at
upsetting the popular incumbent.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz had an early start,
reporting $1.6 million in his campaign account earlier this year.
No fundraising reports are required this year for state candidates in Maryland who are running in 2018. The first electionyear reports, due Jan. 17, will provide a clearer picture of which
candidates have an early advantage.
Raising money could be difficult, especially with a crowded
field of candidates in an era where
Democratic fundraising is down
nationally, analysts said.
“I’m sure that is trickling down
to the states,” said Quincey Gamble, who helped run Democratic
Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown’s losing
gubernatorial campaign in 2014.
Candidates struggling to find
donors could end up dropping out
by Feb. 27, the deadline for filing
for the race, political observers
said. Or, some of the hopefuls
could decide to run for lieutenant
governor as part of another gubernatorial candidate’s ticket.
Polls, like endorsements, can
also lend credibility to candidates,
although they can also shift significantly as the race continues.
This month, Baker’s campaign
received a boost from a MasonDixon poll that said he appeared
to be the strongest contender in
the Democratic primary and has
the best advantage in a theoretical
one-on-one matchup against Hogan.
Baker, who does not have a campaign communications director
and has not publicized his appearances extensively, trailed Hogan
by seven points in such a matchup.
Kamenetz was 13 points behind
Hogan; Jealous was down by 16
points; and Madaleno trailed by 19
points.
“The polls have been pretty
helpful in distancing ourselves
from the pack,” said Andrew Mallinoff, Baker’s campaign manager.
“More people are paying attention.”
The primary has also caught the
eye of the Republican Governors
Association, which says it has a
robust tracking program to keep
cameras on Democratic candidates in case they make gaffes.
Jealous has been a focus for the
group recently because he is more
prone to make public appearances
and stake out far-left positions.
“With multiple Democratic
candidates for governor in Maryland often proposing costly and
outlandish spending schemes, the
RGA will ensure voters understand just how dangerous and
reckless their policies would be for
Maryland’s economy,” said RGA
spokesman Jon Thompson.
Over the weekend, all eight
Democratic candidates — attorney James L. Shea; Krishanti Vignarajah, a former policy aide to
Michelle Obama; Baker; Jealous;
Kamenetz; Madaleno; Rockeymoore Cummings and Ross —
traveled to a Maryland State Educators Association convention in
Ocean City to stake their claims to
an endorsement from the group.
Union officials do not plan to
vote on whom to back until April.

Field for 4 Montgomery at-large seats is growing
COUNCIL FROM B1
Maryland State Board of Elections for the Democratic nomination. There is one candidate
filed to run under the Green
Party banner. No Republicans
have registered as at-large candidates with the elections board,
though the deadline to file is still
four months away.
The primary is next June, and
the top four Democratic vote-getters will advance to the general
election.
In the 2014 election cycle, six
candidates sought the Democratic nomination for the at-large
seats, four of them incumbents.
Four candidates ran as Republicans. The incumbents won easily.
“This election is not going to
be the norm,” said Jared DeMarinis, director of the division
of candidacy and campaign finance for the Maryland State
Board of Elections.
Candidates pointed to three
main factors that contributed to
creating such a broad field: the
enactment of term limits, a new
public financing program and
the election of President Trump.
The first two factors, candidates
said, provide an opportunity for
Montgomery residents looking
for an entry into county politics.
“It’s the perfect, positive
storm,” said at-large candidate
Gabe Albornoz, whose is director
of the county’s recreation department. He described public financing — approved by the
County Council in 2014 and in
place for the first time this
election cycle — as “an important
tool to get people more engaged
in the electoral process.”
Candidate Hoan Dang, a program analyst for a federal contractor, said “public financing is
leveling the playing field” since
those who participate cannot
accept donations over $150, but
they can get government matching funds that allow them to
compete with candidates that
can raise large sums from the
private sector.
Candidates hoping to qualify
for the public financing program
are barred from accepting corporate or PAC contributions. Atlarge candidates must collect at
least 250 donations, totaling
$20,000, to receive their first
installment of matching funds.
As of Sept. 30, 18 at-large
candidates had filed a notice of
intent to the State Board of
Elections to participate in public
financing.
Dang said another factor that
might encourage people to enter
the race could be tied to a
“snowballing effect.”
“If there’s 25, and there could
be as many as 40 candidates,
then more people start to think,
‘Well, I need a smaller percentage of votes,’ so they jump in,”
Dang said.
Then there are motivators
stemming from beyond Montgomery, a mostly liberal enclave
that has not elected a Republican
official in recent memory.
Bill Conway, an electricity lawyer who is seeking one of the
Democratic at-large nominations, said Trump’s election was
what “pushed me over to run-
“The direction of
Montgomery County is
going to change.”

ning,” adding that “Trump in the
background has shocked us all
out of our complacency.”
Meitiv, the “free-range mom,”
said many residents of the county — where more than threequarters voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election — are suffering from a
“Trump hangover.”
Yet a key question that remains unsolved is how to manage an election — including debates or forums — in which new
candidates seem to enter every
week.
Earlier this month, a dozen
candidates who had filed for
candidacy took part in a forum
where each was given a few
minutes to speak. Attendees
could then talk to candidates
scattered throughout a large
yard and ask questions on specific issues.
Candidates said it will be difficult to substantively discuss
county issues as the field widens.
“We saw the Republican
[presidential] debates with 20
people — it becomes a sound bite
thing,” said Will Jawando, a former Obama administration official who lost a Democratic primary race last year for an open
congressional seat and is running for an at-large council seat
in 2018. “I don’t think it’s particularly helpful for voters.”
Issues that have dominated
county politics for years will
once again bear on this election,
with candidates emphasizing
Montgomery’s problems with
traffic and public transit, overcrowded schools, and concerns
for public safety.
Many candidates say they
want to address the needs of the
county’s senior population and
secure more affordable housing,
boost the county’s economy and
improve job growth.
But even if the issues are
familiar, many of the faces will be
new. In addition to the crowded
at-large race, a multiple-candidate race for a term-limited district council seat means that the
County Council sworn in late
next year will have more firsttime lawmakers than the panel
has seen in many years.
“It’s a historic election,”
Jawando said. “The direction of
Montgomery County is going to
change. The question is who is
going to lead that change, and
who is going to be a part of that.”
The other Democratic candidates who have filed so far are:
Marilyn Balcombe, Shruti Bhatnagar, Cherri L. Branson, Brandy
Brooks, Ron Colbert, Loretta
Jean Garcia, Evan Glass, Richard
Gottfried, Neil H. Greenberger,
Ashwani Jain, Melissa McKenna,
Darwin Romero, Mohammad
Siddique and Chris Wilhelm.

the house’s 24-hour staff will enforce a structured routine, Clark
said. Teens will participate in
both individual and family counseling while at the shelter to
“unpack what is underneath all
the conflict,” she said.
To ease stress at home, the
program will also provide families with opportunities for bonding, which they otherwise may
not be able to afford, such as free
tickets to local sporting events,
Clark said.
On a recent afternoon, sunlight streamed into the third floor
of the shelter, where five twin
beds have been added for teens
participating in the STEP program.
A small suitcase was parked
next to a wooden dresser, and a
hot-pink hair tie was strewn on
the fireplace mantle — subtle
signs of the shelter’s first program participant.
Before the STEP program,
“kids basically had to scream to
get someone to pay attention,”
Clark said. “But now we’ve created a mechanism where we hear
that first cry and we do something about it.”

is that they will look at the ways
their children learn and pick what
is best for their daughters,” she
said. “I think that Girl Scouts is
best for their daughters. . . . When
they say girls want to do the same
things boys do, it’s happening at
Girl Scouts.”
Stone said the co-ed program
has been good for everyone in his
70-person troop. Sixteen of the
members are girls.
The troop camps and hikes and
participates in service projects.
During the meeting they passed
out plastic bags for the upcoming

Meredith Sherman, 19, served
as Venture crew president and
assistant senior patrol leader
while she was in Troop 52 and said
some of the boys resisted her
leadership. But she stuck with it,
and eventually, she said, the boys
learned that women deserve the
same respect.
Sherman went to an all-girls

said it was “really rewarding.”

have a leadership position over
boys,” Sherman said. “There’s a
really important element to young
boys being exposed to girls doing
all the same things as them, having leadership positions over
them, so I think it really cultivates
a sense of acknowledgment and
respect.”
Troop 52 has never been one to
wait around for the national organization to officially permit a
change.
An openly gay scout, Pascal
Tessier, belonged to the troop
before the ban on gay troops was
lifted and he then became one of
the nation’s first openly gay
youths to achieve the Eagle Scout
ranking under the changed policy.
Senior patrol leader Camaran
Gaillard, 17, said it’s been normal
for him to participate alongside
the girls and he’s glad the national
change will allow girls to work
toward the same recognition as
the boys who achieve the highest
rank of Eagle Scout.
“They’ve always been doing the
same Scout skills as we’ve been
doing. They’ve always been a part
of this troop,” Camaran said.
“We’ve grown so accustomed to
them being there so it’s not a big
deal to us. All the craziness going
on, it seems foreign to me.”
Despite the integration, there
are moments when the girls are
aware that they are not full members of the troop.
Before Stone wrapped up the
meeting, he explained certain
next steps needed to work toward
the Eagle Scout award, and Larissa Sakaria, 16, zoned out. No
matter how far she advanced, as a
girl she had never been granted
the access to achieve that goal.
Stone, noticing she had lost
interest, approached afterward
and asked, what did he always
remind her?
She replied: “Anything that a
guy can do, a girl can do — and
probably better.”

When Larry Jackson bought his
first apartment in the Anacostia
neighborhood in the late 1970s, he
said Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue
SE was a street “you didn’t want to
walk on.”
In recent years, Jackson, a
57-year-old mechanic, has seen new
development push out the drugs
and dealers he said once “loaded
this street.”
Last week, the city said that Starbucks plans to open a store on the
thoroughfare, its first stand-alone
location in the poorest wards east of
the Anacostia River, where the District has long struggled to attract
national retailers.
“It shows Martin Luther King
Highway is coming up,” said Jackson, standing outside Distad’s Tire
and Auto, where he has worked for
18 years.
Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D),
whose administration helped Starbucks choose the location in Maple
View Flats, a housing and retail site
the city is helping to build, said she
knows “every corner of Washington,
D.C., is a great place to do business.”
“This is how we expand prosperity — by being intentional about
how we develop our neighborhoods
and ensuring that as we grow, we
create jobs for residents and set our
communities up for long-term success,” Bowser said in a statement.
Businesses such as Starbucks can
mean jobs for residents in Ward 8,
where unemployment is 14.2 percent — the highest in the city. But
economic development can also
lead to displacement for the District’s long-term residents, Jackson
said.
“It’s a risk,” Jackson said. “It’s the
risk that poor black folks face.”
A recent study found that Washington’s booming economy is leaving its longtime black residents behind, with the median annual income for black families at $41,000
in 2014 — unchanged since 2007 —
compared with $120,000 for white
families in the District.
“A lot of people with a lot of
money are coming into this city,”
said John Howard, who has lived in
Southeast Washington for more
than five decades. “People who have
been here for years are moving to
‘Ward 9,’ ” he said, referring to
Prince George’s County.
But Courtney Snowden, Bowser’s
deputy mayor for greater economic
opportunity, said the administration wants retailers who will hire in
the neighborhoods where they are
located.
D.C. Council member Trayon
White Sr. (D-Ward 8) acknowledged
that some residents are concerned
about gentrification, but he said he
was “hard at work ensuring the
development not only benefits our
longtime residents, but enables
them to grow the wealth that they
deserve.”
Starbucks has shown a commitment to hiring D.C. residents in positions that offer benefits and managerial tracks, Bowser said in the
news release. The company made
job offers to people ages 16 to 24 in
September during the D.C. Opportunity Fair as part of a national
initiative to hire 1 million young
people who are out of work and out
of school.
It was not difficult to persuade
the company to move into Maple
View Flats, Snowden said.
“We are no longer a city that
people are running from,” Snowden
said. “We are a city that people are
flocking to. We have a lot to be proud
of.”
Starbucks began looking at Maple View Flats, which is under construction and will include affordable housing units, 14,500 square
feet of retail space and two levels of
underground parking, as part of a
national initiative to open in at least
15 underserved communities,
spokeswoman Alisha Damodaran
said. She noted the company has
signed a letter of intent but said
“there is a still a long way to go in
terms of signing a lease.”
The company has 94 locations in
the District, she said. Although
there is a Starbucks inside Joint
Base Anacostia-Bolling and in the
Safeway store on Alabama Avenue
SE, the Maple View location would
be the company’s first stand-alone
store east of the river.
“It’s about time they fix up
Ward 8,” resident Gloria Benbow
said after hearing about plans for
the Starbucks.
The 51-year-old cook, who grew
up in Southeast Washington and
recently moved back to the neighborhood, said developments such
as Maple View Flats are signs of
progress.
“She is getting there — she is
trying,” Benbow said, referring to
Bowser.
The mayor also announced last
week that Uber opened a hub in the
shopping center in East River Park
NE, which will provide support for
Uber drivers and is expected to hire
25 full-time employees.
“These neighborhoods are open
for business,” said Snowden, who
lives in the Deanwood neighborhood in Ward 7. “It is a matter of
cultivating the right partnerships
with the right retailers.”
Howard, a marketer for a dental
company, said he appreciated news
about Starbucks but would rather
see a grocery store or more affordable housing. There are only three
supermarkets between Wards 7 and
8. At a Starbucks in the District, a
medium latte can cost more
than $4.
“The city needs to be doing all it
can to help the working poor,”
he said.
Previous attempts to attract supermarkets east of the river — over
multiple city administrations —
have failed.
Bowser’s critics questioned
whether she could have done more
in 2016 when Walmart abruptly
pulled out of a deal to build two
stores east of the Anacostia, after
receiving approval from the city to
build three stores in wealthier parts
of the city. The retailer said the projects were scrapped because of disappointing performances at its other D.C. stores and increased costs for
the proposed stores.
Although no major retailers have
been announced to replace Walmart in the Skyland Town Center in
Southeast and the Capitol Gateway
Marketplace
in
Northeast,
Snowden said her office is continuing to try to secure retailers in demand by the community.
Snowden, whose position Bowser created when she took office in
2015 to focus on the needs of overlooked communities, said that there
are some who “are fearful of progress and what it means for the future” but that the vast majority of
residents are “hungry for retail.”

CREIGHTON J. HALE, 93
Physiologist, Little League chief developed modern batting helmets
BY MATT SCHUDEL
To reduce the danger of being
struck in the head by a pitch, baseball players have experimented
with helmets made of leather, metal
and other materials since the turn
of 20th century.
The National League required
batters to wear some kind of protective headgear in 1956, followed by
the American League two years later.
Most of those early helmets covered only the top of the head. The
modern, hard-shell batting helmet,
instantly familiar to anyone who
has played or watched baseball, was
a surprisingly late development.
It was patented in 1959 by
Creighton J. Hale, a physiologist
who was the first director of research for Little League Baseball.
He later became the president and
chief executive of Little League,
making him one of the most influential people in baseball.
Dr. Hale died Oct. 8 at a hospital
in Williamsport, Pa., the headquarters of what is now called Little
League International. He was 93.
The Little League organization announced his death, but the cause
was not disclosed.
Little League baseball was
founded in 1939. When its annual
world series was first televised in
1953, doctors and psychologists became concerned about the physical
and emotional toll that intense
competition could have on athletes
no older than 12.
Dr. Hale, then on the faculty of
Springfield College in Massachusetts, wrote to Little League President Peter J. McGovern, suggesting
that a commission investigating the
sport’s safety would need a quali-
fied scientist.
In 1955, McGovern offered Dr.
Hale a temporary assignment as
research director.
“I took a year-and-a-half leave of
absence, and I’m still on it,” Dr. Hale
said in 1985.
One of the first things he studied
was why Little League batters were
more likely to be hit by pitches than
their adult counterparts. By measuring how fast hitters could react
to thrown balls, he discovered that
a simple adjustment would alleviate the problem: He moved the
pitcher’s mound back two feet, putting the pitcher 46 feet from home
plate instead of 44.
Dr. Hale addressed other safety
issues, as well, most notably the
batting helmet. With an air cannon
built out of parts he bought in a
hardware store, he fired baseballs
at speeds up to 100 mph. The hel-

mets broke apart on impact.
He devised a hard plastic helmet
with interior padding, then added
flaps over both ears that would
protect a batter’s temples and
cheekbones. The helmets, which
could deflect a pitch without breaking, were required for Little League
hitters and base runners in 1961.
“Everybody’s made their own little designs, but the major idea, the
major design, was his,” Jim Easton,
president of the Easton sporting
goods manufacturer, told the Associated Press in 2001. “There was a
lot of resistance, just like you saw in
hockey, where some players didn’t
want to wear helmets. But with
Little League making it mandatory,
then people grew up with it, and
eventually everyone wore them.”
The helmets soon became standard at other levels of baseball,
from high school through the minor leagues. In 1983, earflap helmets were required in the major
leagues, although many players still
wear helmets covering only the ear
exposed to an oncoming pitch.
Dr. Hale used his air cannon to
test other equipment and developed a one-piece helmet and mask
for catchers. He sought to make
bats out of shatterproof materials
and designed a catcher’s chest protector with a protective throat
guard.
He also conducted a battery of
physiological and psychological
tests on players, concluding that
Little Leaguers often handled stress
better than their coaches and parents.
Adults were so gripped by tension that “they had symptoms of
appendicitis or heart attacks” during games and for hours afterward,
Dr. Hale told the Los Angeles Times
in 1985.
But the pulse rates of young players typically returned to normal
within 15 minutes after a game.
“The public was concerned
about the kids,” Dr. Hale said. “I was
worried about the parents.”
Creighton J. Hale — the “J” was
merely decorative — was born Feb.
18, 1924, in Hardy, Neb. Both of his
parents were teachers.
He served in the Navy during
World War II before graduating
from Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y., in 1948. He received a

master’s degree in physiology from
Springfield College in 1949 and a
doctorate from New York University in 1951.
After a year as Little League’s
research director, he joined the organization permanently. He became president in 1973 and added
the title of chief executive a decade
later.
Under his leadership, Little
League participation expanded
from 31 countries to more than 80.
The number of players between the
ages of 4 and 16 taking part in Little
League baseball and softball programs grew from 370,000 to more
than 3 million.
During his final year as chief
executive in 1994, Dr. Hale helped
coordinate a moment of “Little
League diplomacy” when a group
of Taiwanese Little Leaguers became the first sports team from
their country to compete in mainland China.
Dr. Hale remained on the Little
League board of directors until
2014. He twice served on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness
and was a charter fellow of the
American College of Sports Medicine. In addition to his work on
sports safety, he helped develop an
infantry pack used by the Army and
led research efforts to develop Kev-
lar helmets and bulletproof vests
for the military.
His marriage to the former Rita
Hugo ended in divorce. A son preceded him in death.
Survivors include his wife of 13
years, the former Beverly J. Gray of
Williamsport; two children from
his first marriage; a brother; 10
grandchildren; and nine greatgrandchildren.
In 1971, the National Organization for Women filed a lawsuit
against Little League on behalf of a
girl in New Jersey, Maria Pepe, who
“just wanted to play baseball with
my friends.”
Dr. Hale testified that girls were
not physically able to withstand the
rigors of the sport, asserting that
they could be easily injured because
their bones and muscles were
weaker than boys’. An orthopedic
surgeon refuted his claims, and a
judge ruled that girls were eligible
to play Little League baseball alongside boys.
Dr. Hale came to regret his early
position, particularly after his
granddaughter made an all-star
team. In 2014, he said that having
girls take part in baseball and softball was “one of the greatest things
that ever happened to Little
League.”

Of Springfield, VA, previously of South
Orange, NJ, passed away quietly on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the Sunrise
Assisted Care Facility, where he had resided
for the past few years. Leonard was born
in North Arlington, NJ in 1921 and spent
his entire life in New Jersey until moving to
Virginia three years ago.
Leonard was preceded in death by his
parents, Etta and Charles Soschin; brother,
Robert (Marie); sister, Florence (Herman);
and oldest grandson, Aaron. Leonard was
widowed twice. His first wife, Doris (née
Zatulove), died in 1973 after nearly 30 years
of marriage. his second wife, Bette Baime
Kessler Soschin, died in 2008 after being
married to Leonard for 30 years. Leonard
is survived by his sons, Alan (Nancy) and
David both of Springfield, VA; grandson,
Dan (Sydney); and great-grandson, Cooper,
of Tampa, FL; and grandson, Charles (Erin)
of Washington, DC.
Leonard graduated from Rutgers University
with a Bachelors of Science in Pharmacy in
1942. Shortly after graduation, he enlisted
in the Army and he honorably served his
country during World War II. He was discharged after nearly four years of service
in 1946. Then, with his brother, Robert, and

The Weather
WASHINGTONPOST.COM/WEATHER
Cloudy start, then dry afternoon
The morning will be fairly benign as
clouds begin to spread over more of
the area, but we stay dry through the
afternoon. Highs will once again
warm into the mid- to upper 70s.
These above-normal readings along with an
increase in humidity will make it feel slightly
uncomfortable for some of us. Thick cloud cover
lingers into the evening, and the first few bands
of showers could enter the far western suburbs
around mid-evening. However, a more uniform
area of rain should hold off until late.

Scottie Nell Hughes
defended Donald Trump
passionately during the
campaign. After the
election, seeming to echo
Trump adviser Kellyanne
Margaret
Conway’s notion of
Sullivan
“alternative facts,”
Hughes infamously
opined that “there is no such thing,
unfortunately, anymore as facts,” just
opinions about what should be
believed.
New York magazine called her one
of Trump’s “most faithful and
pervasive campaign surrogates.” She
even was able to look beyond his
bragging about groping women; it
was wrong, she agreed, but not
disqualifying.
Early this year, after a stint as a paid
contributor on CNN, she thought she
was headed for a position in the Trump
administration.
Then things went south, and her
career went into a tailspin.
“I’m dead in the water now,” she told
me. “I can’t be touched by any media or
any network.”
Before going to CNN in 2016, Hughes
had been a frequent guest on Charles
Payne’s Fox Business show, “Making
Money.” Last month, she claimed in a
lawsuit that Payne raped her in 2013. A
sexual relationship, which she
describes as the result of coercion and
fear, and which he describes as a
regrettable consensual affair, followed
for two years.
Payne has vehemently denied her
charges and his lawyer called them
baseless and a “publicity stunt.” Fox
suspended him for a time while it
investigated; he’s now back on the air.
And Fox says it will vigorously defend
itself in court.
Hughes, on the other hand, claims
that she has been blackballed — not
only from Fox but other media outlets.
That happened, she alleges, after she
ended the relationship and word of her
complaint came to Fox’s attention;
tabloid stories and leaked emails hurt
her reputation and vastly limited her
opportunities even before she filed
suit.
Now a once-promising career, she
says, is in ruins.
Hughes told me that she’s found out
the hard way that conservative women
have a particularly hard time making
sexual harassment and assault claims.
Those claims often are scoffed at on the
right, she said, and retaliation can be
swift and brutal.

misconduct outside of those involved

A late-night legend gets his Twain Prize props
BY
G EOFF E DGERS
For years, David Letterman, consumed
by insecurities and the relentless pace of a
nightly television program, would respond to the loud cheers of his audience
with a strained smile and a half-scolding,
half-embarrassed wave to “cut that out.”
But Sunday night, the late-night legend
found himself stuck in a seat where he
couldn’t silence his admirers.
As Letterman watched from a box with
his wife, Regina, and 13-year-old son Harry, the former television host was lauded
as the Kennedy Center’s 20th recipient of
the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor by a stunning array of performers.
They talked of how he reinvented latenight television with oddball bits, as well
as of his ability to deliver comforting
words during the worst of times. They
saluted him, cheered him and made sure
to mock him for his restless, unsatisfied
energy and relentless beard.
“I’ll tell you something, Marty,” Steve
Martin said, presenting with Martin Short
during the night’s first tribute. “Dave has
always had spot-on comedic instinct.
What better time than right now to insist
on looking like a Confederate war general?”
And in an unbilled appearance, Letterman’s psychiatrist, Clarice Kestenbaum,
delivered one of the night’s punchiest
paragraphs.
“If you ever need a solid 45-minute nap,
drop in,” Kestenbaum said. “ ‘I’m dumb.
People hate me. I have E.D.’ Oh, Jesus,

PERFORMANCE REVIEW
Weems’s ‘Grace Notes’: A bold work
that has me arguing with myself
BY
KATE PATTERSON FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
David Letterman, with his 13-year-old son, Harry, is honored with the 20th
Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at theKennedy Center on Sunday.
A NNE M IDGETTE
Critic A: There’s a line between performance art and performance. Carrie
Mae Weems’s project “Grace Notes: Reflections for Now,” which premiered at
the Spoleto Festival last year and came
to the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower
Theater on Friday night, shines a spotlight squarely on it. As performance art,
“Grace Notes” offers snippets of
thoughts and imagery and events that
are sometimes powerful, sometimes
oblique. As a performance, it doesn’t
quite come off.
Critic B: It’s irrelevant to criticize a
piece that is reaching for something
much bigger than mere entertainment.
You could argue that simply offering a
Kennedy Center platform for this piece,
a strong statement about African American lives today, a work that involves
many artists speaking, singing, dancing,
musing on the nature of grace, and at
one point commemorating the lives lost
to senseless violence — from Trayvon
Martin to Philando Castile, an all-toolong roster of names that bite like nails
fired from a nail gun — is far more
important than whether the result
“works” according to anyone’s notions
of artistic effectiveness.
Critic A: Yet Weems, a MacArthur
fellow best known as a photographer and
performance artist who had a Guggen-
heim retrospective of her work in 2014,
chose this particular medium — a staged
work in a live theater setting — so it’s
reasonable to examine whether the work
functions on this medium’s terms.
The piece opens with a woman sitting
on stage at a desk with a typewriter,
facing a wall: a nice metaphor for those
of us familiar with the blank page. The
real action, then, begins with a video of
Weems herself walking through a museum, and I thought briefly of Beyonce’s
video “Lemonade” — simply because it
was an image of a strong African
American woman walking with a clear
purpose at the start of a long, immersive
piece. But the “Lemonade” video was an
unfortunate comparison, because that
astonishing hour-long operatic work
offered a level of sophistication and
power that this evening, for all its
virtues, never quite achieved after its
promising opening.
I think this is partly a question of
inexperience. Each medium has slightly
different rules, and artists spend their
lifetimes figuring out how to communicate in each of them; Weems has not had
much chance to figure out what works
well on stage. What she did was introduce a number of performers in a kind of
revue that played out against a minimal
backdrop of a wall with inset windows,
branches and falling snow. Three singers

Twain Prize tribute puts a bashful honoree at center stage
LETTERMAN FROM C1
what a f---ing pity party. Don’t get
me wrong: He’s crazy. Not Trump
crazy. But who knows?”
There were two purposes to the
evening: to praise Letterman because, as Jimmy Kimmel said, “No
one from his generation influenced American comedy more,”
and to offer a night packed with
enough laughter to honor that legacy.
Letterman’s past provided a
good dose of comedy, as the audience was treated to old clips from
both his NBC and CBS shows.
These included him working at a
fast-food drive-in, watching a pig
dunk a basketball during a “Stupid
Pet Tricks” segment, and inter-
viewing Dorothy Mengering —
better known to his show’s fans as
“Dave’s Mom” — as she delivered a
report from the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.
The sometimes incongruent
scope of Letterman’s career was on
full display as Sen. Al Franken
(D-Minn.) talked of Letterman’s
concern for the environment and
then sang the praises of the show’s
“Monkey Cam.”
And then there was Bill Murray,
last year’s Twain winner, who arrived in full Elizabethan garb to
the strains of Herman’s Hermits’
“I’m Henry VIII, I Am.”
“You will be able, as the Twain,
to walk up to any man or woman
and take a burning cigar from
their mouth and finish it. You will
be able to board any riverboat.”
Letterman clapped in delight at
that line.
Then Murray had a cheeseburger delivered to the stage, took a
bite and demanded that trays of
burgers be delivered to Letterman’s box.
“Harry, I want you to be a generous prince,” Murray instructed
Letterman’s son. “Throw a pickle
to your people. Toss a pickle to
your people.”
Harry first seemed to shake the
request off — when you’re a teenager on camera in front of a packed
house, even Bill Murray in a feathered hat isn’t going to push you
around. So Dad stepped in, plucking a tomato and handing it to his
boy. Harry tossed it, and Murray
proclaimed: “He’s going to be a
good one.”
Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, in
gray wigs and playing a pair of
childhood friends from Indiana,
created a short spoof film. They
made reference to the bitter battle
won by Jay Leno to replace Johnny
Carson as host of “The Tonight
Show.”
“Before that, I was a big Leno
fan, but after that, I never watched
more than the opening monologue,” Hader said in character.
“But after the monologue, I
promised I’d switch over to Dave,”
said Armisen.
“Depending on who the first
guest was,” Hader added.

with Tom Petty’s initials, performed a song by Warren Zevon, a
musician particularly loved by
Letterman.
Zevon regularly filled in as
Letterman’s music director when
Paul Shaffer needed time off. He
was most famously Letterman’s
only guest the night before Halloween in 2002, when he was dying of cancer. “Keep Me In Your
Heart,” performed during the ceremony by Vedder, was the last song
on Zevon’s final album.
Norm Macdonald, who performed the final stand-up act on
Letterman’s “Late Show” in 2015,
arrived to tell the crowd that the
Twain Prize was actually still to be
determined by their vote.
Would it be Letterman or retired Congolese American basketball star Dikembe Mutombo, he
asked, as images of both flashed on
the screens behind him.
“And no, David Letterman does
not stand 7-foot-6, but the point is,
he doesn’t have to,” Macdonald
said. “He’s not a basketball player
or some kind of damned giraffe. I
apologize for the salty language.
But the longer I stand here, the
angrier I become.”
There was Shaffer, back behind
the keyboard as the night’s musical director, and Alan Kalter once
again serving as announcer. There
was a Top Ten List — the differences between Letterman and Twain
— during which “Late Night” favorite Chris Elliott appeared to
declare that he was sound asleep
backstage and doesn’t “do jokes.”
And there was Letterman’s appearance at the end to receive the
Twain bust.
Biff Henderson, his longtime
stagehand and foil, appeared with
his customary headset.
“Oh, hi, Biff, do you hear something?” Letterman asked.
“That’s Mark Twain rolling over
in his grave,” Henderson said.
That led into a crisp, nearly
10-minute speech from Letterman, which opened with his praising each of the presenters before
offering two more-serious messages.
“If you help someone, in any
way, big or small, automatically
you will feel good about yourself,”
Letterman said.
Then he offered a quote from
Twain.
“Mark Twain’s definition of patriotism is this,” he said. “Patriotism is supporting your country all
the time, and your government
when it deserves it.”

H ELENA A NDREWS- D YER
AND E MILY H EIL
Before Sunday’s ceremony
awarding the 20th Mark Twain
Prize for American Humor to David Letterman, the red-carpet
question on everyone’s minds had
to be: To Trump or not to Trump?
Each of the funny famous folks
making their way down the red
carpet at the Kennedy Center before the big show had been tasked
with a tough job: roasting the 70year-old king of late night at a time
when the comedic landscape
seems riddled with political
punchlines packed with names
like Donald Trump and Harvey
Weinstein.
Would the night get serious or
stay silly? It depended on whom
you asked.
And it just so happened that the
first big name to pose in front of
the step-and-repeat was none other than Jimmy Kimmel, the latenight host whose sharp, politically
minded monologues criticizing
the Cassidy-Graham health-care
bill had one attendee branding
him a “hero.”
“I don’t know that I am making
a difference,” Kimmel said, “but I
am going to try. I think if everybody adopts that philosophy, we
will actually make a difference.”
Kimmel, a self-described Letterman “stalker” (he had the birthday
cake and vanity license plate to
prove it), kept his material for the
night close to the vest but remained characteristically candid
about the state of the country.
“I feel hopeful but not necessarily optimistic,” said Kimmel, who
planned to hightail it out of Washington after the show. So no quick
sit-down with President Trump
then?
“Oh, I have a million questions
for Donald Trump,” Kimmel said.
“I’d need like three hours with
him.”
The next few hours, though,
could very well be a Trump-free
zone.
“No politics tonight,” Martin
Short said definitively. Okay, then.
Comedian Jimmie Walker, who
hired Letterman as a writer when
the future late-night host first
moved to Los Angeles, said the two
don’t ever talk politics.
“Dave is not a political guy,” said
Walker, one of the honoree’s oldest
industry pals. “He’s not that type of
cat.”
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.)
agrees — sort of.
“No Trump jokes,” Franken said.
“This is about David.”
But whether Letterman is political or not? That’s up for debate,
according to Franken, who joked
that he tried to get the former TV
weatherman to run for office in
Indiana (for what position, we
don’t know).
“He’s very interested in subjects
like climate change,” said Franken,
who also saw parallels between
Kimmel’s political comedy and
Letterman’s, pointing to the former “Late Show” host’s YouTubeable 9/11 monologue as proof.
Letterman is “someone who
takes the 60 minutes they have on
TV five nights a week very serious-

THE WASHINGTON POST
From top: Jimmy Kimmel and
wife Molly McNearney; Sen. Al
Franken; and Jimmie Walker.
ly,” Franken added.
Speaking of taking things seriously, finally, here’s the man of the
hour himself, making jokes about
some serious stuff.
When asked by a reporter on the
red carpet how he feels about the
current state of affairs in Washington, Letterman deadpans: “I’ll tell
you something, if I can be candid —
I’m beginning to lose confidence in
the Trump administration.”
But seriously, folks: How exactly
is Letterman, who famously hates
being complimented, taking all
this — the praise, the roasting, the
fawning?
“It’s uncomfortable,” Letterman
said. “So far, I’m having a very nice
time, but I’m afraid that will all
diminish when people are on stage
telling lies about me and then I’ll
start to wither and become uncomfortable and sweat through my
shirt.”
So, why do it? Why show up in a
tux and subject yourself to a barrage of glittery tributes from the
likes of Steve Martin, Amy Schumer and last year’s Mark Twain
recipient, Bill Murray ?
He’s doing it for his 13-year-old
son, Harry, who is somewhere in
the building.
“With every breath I take, I’m
trying to impress him,” Letterman
said. “And every now and then, I
feel like I have to let the young man
know that, in fact, his father, not
just a dope, but someone in addition to being a dope, was in show
business. That’s why I’m doing it.”
Fair enough.

On high-profile treks through
San Juan, her ravaged, debrisstrewn and power-starved city,
she is trailed by a mayor’s office
photographer and videographer,
who feed images to her social
media accounts. Images of her
tromping through floodwaters,
rescuing senior citizens and delivering supplies are everywhere,
because she seems to be everywhere.
Cruz is fond of profanity, and
she’s
become
eminently
bleepable as well as eminently
quotable as she tries to communicate the urgency of the plight
here. She brusquely dismisses
criticism of her approach, waving off portrayals that cast her as
a whiner or grandstander.
“I don’t give a s---,” she said in
an interview at a folding table on
the basketball court of the Clemente coliseum, now piled with
pallets of bottled water and
canned goods. “Because people’s
lives are at stake.”
‘The hater in chief ’
Cruz’s smash-mouth approach
to the White House administration — she has called President
Trump “disrespectful,” “the miscommunicator in chief ” and “the
hater in chief ” among other
things — raises the question of
whether a local official can get
what she needs despite a
strained relationship with Washington.
Trump has threatened to
abandon Puerto Rico recovery
efforts. He also has sniped that
Cruz is demonstrating “poor
leadership,” and Trump’s Federal
Emergency Management Agency
director, William “Brock” Long,
recently told ABC: “We filtered
out the mayor a long time ago.
We don’t have time for the political noise.”
Cruz seems to be banking on
her ability to work around
Trump, leveraging her megamedia platform and appealing
directly to the public and to
corporate givers. She points to
truckloads of corporate donations pouring in as verification
that she’s on the right path. But
she also has continued to nudge
the federal government to do
much more, both in terms of
relief resources and in delivering
financial assistance to an island
that has long been drowning
in debt.
“The nation has a big heart
and the president has a big
mouth,” Cruz said.
Cruz detonated in the national
consciousness shortly after Maria struck, delivering impassioned remarks at a news conference. She warned of a potential
“genocide” and delivered a line
that defined the early coverage of
the storm: “We are dying here
and you are killing us with the
inefficiency and the bureaucracy.”
The words she used in the
news conference were such a hit
that her staff printed them out on
a computer and ironed them
onto a black T-shirt, she said. She
wore the T-shirt on a national

television interview. Later, when
Trump disparaged her as “nasty,”
she appeared for interviews with
a T-shirt that read “nasty.”
She was going to a playbook
she had used before. Cruz confides that she has lots of T-shirts
— 179, to be exact — each with a
political message.
“LGBT,” she says, launching
into a long list.
“Against contamination of our
land.”
“In favor of women’s rights.”
As Cruz was talking, the conversation was interrupted by
someone bringing over white
rice and pork chops.
“Oh my God,” she said.
She tilted her head forward,
removed her glasses and held her
face in her hands for several
moments. When she lowered her
hands, her eyes had welled with
tears.
“It’s warm,” she said, adding
that she hadn’t had warm food in
a long while.
An outsider’s victory
Cruz, like many islanders,
made her way to the mainland
United States. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Boston University and a master’s from Carnegie Mellon, then went on to
human resources executive positions, according to her official
biography.
She gave birth to her only
child, Marina Paul Yulín Cruz, in
Pennsylvania, but in the 1990s
she was drawn back to the island
to work as an adviser to Sila
María Calderón, who would later
become governor.
Cruz went on to serve as an
elected member of the Puerto
Rico House of Representatives,
then launched a campaign for
mayor in 2012. Few gave her a
chance.
“I wanted to be mayor, but my
party didn’t want me,” she said. “I
was perhaps too liberal.”
Vargas Vidot, the Puerto Rican
senator, said Cruz’s independent
streak has been one of her greatest virtues, but also one of her
weaknesses.
During the interview with
Cruz, she occasionally fingered a
rosary that dangled from her left
wrist. When asked about it, she
recalled without hesitation the
exact day she received it: Feb. 19,
2012.
At that time, she said, her
campaign seemed to be going
nowhere. But on that day that
she remembers with such precision, she ran into a woman she
didn’t know at a restaurant. The
woman told her: “You’re going to
be mayor in November.”
She says her response was
something like, “Yeah, right.”
Shortly thereafter, a rival became embroiled in scandal, and
she ended up winning an unlikely victory. She has worn the
rosary ever since.
Not surprisingly, the attention
she has received since the hurricane has led to speculation that
she has set her sights on higher
office, such as the governorship.
Cruz has now taken to countering the rumors by telling several
local media organizations that
she will not seek the governor’s
office and that if she runs for
anything in 2020, it will be for
reelection as mayor.
At times she affects the demeanor of a drill sergeant, loudly
barking orders. She can be selfeffacing one moment — laughing
as a random cat strolls through
her news conference or pulling
off her cap to show reporters the
gray roots in her dyed blonde
hair — and imperious the next,
yelling profanities into the
phone or gruffly ordering around
her staffers, who scurry at the
barest hint of a request.
“She’s always been this way,
even when she was little,” said
Cruz’s aunt, Irma Soto, as she
watched her niece. “Always the
leader.”
On a recent afternoon, as
Cruz’s team of staffers and volunteers was packing to leave on a
tour of San Juan, Cruz began
straightening up chairs in the
corner of the coliseum basketball
court where she holds news conferences.
“When I was in school, I was
too short to erase the blackboard,” the diminutive mayor
A story to tell
Later that afternoon, Cruz’s
caravan — pickup trucks, a press
van, police motorcycles —
pushed off from the coliseum,
sirens blaring to clear holes in
the epic San Juan traffic.
They came to a stop on a
scruffy street on a bluff overlooking the city.
Cruz bounded out of one of the
lead vehicles. She wore cargo
pants tucked into the brown
5.11 Tactical brand combat boots
that have become her signature
look during the crisis. She wears
gray horn-rimmed glasses that
look like expensive designer
frames.
“They’re cheaters,” she said
later with a laugh, pulling them
off and pointing out how the tint
is peeling away. “$19.99 at Walgreen’s.”
Trailed by cameras and a small
pack of reporters, she made her
way down a street lined with
modest concrete homes, looking
for old people.
“Donde estan los viejitos?” she
yelled. Where are the little old
people?
Startled neighbors, who had
come out onto their porches and
stoops, pointed to a small yellow
house. Cruz went inside. There
she found several older people,
and she started quizzing them
about their medications. For all
the journalists spreading across
San Juan, Cruz — through her
social media postings and nonstop interviews — has become, in
a sense, one of the foremost
chroniclers of the storm’s aftermath. In this little house, she had
found another story to tell, one
she says would have been missed
if her caravan had been moving
too fast.
“Then you will lose the human
stories behind it and the human
condition behind it,” Cruz said.
From there, her caravan made
its way deep into Caimito, an
impoverished stretch of outer
San Juan that was once a rural
getaway but now has been swallowed by the spreading city, filling with the flimsy homes of
some of the area’s poorest residents. Her destination was the
home of a 9-year-old boy genius
with a 140 IQ who lost almost all
his books during the storm.
Above her head, a drone —
operated by a charitable organization that is distributing solar
lamps — videotaped everything.
At the base of a precipitous
gravelly roadway, the procession
stopped. Cruz went ahead alone
as staffers held back the reporters.
“This boy is a genius,” one of
Cruz’s top aides, José Cruz, whispered in a voice reminiscent of a
golf announcer narrating a crucial putt.
A child in a blue T-shirt, shorts
and Crocs emerged from a cinder-block house that lost its roof
to the storm and had walls
patched with plywood. It clung
perilously to the edge of the
hillside above a steep ravine.
“This is him,” the mayoral
aide, whispered. “Look at him
with his books.”
Ever the master of ceremonies,
Cruz suggested that the boy lead
the camera crews on a tour of his
wrecked house. Cruz hung back.
With the cameras turned away
from her, she and the boy’s mother embraced for a long time. Both
of them were crying.
“God,” the mother said, “will
reward you for this.”

MARGARET SULLIVAN
Conservative media was a commentator’s world — now it’s her enemy
SULLIVAN FROM C1
with Fox,” she said.
The absence speaks volumes,
she said: “Victims have been
shamed into silence and it’s
almost like open hunting season
for sexual predators on the
right.”
Almost every day, she said,
she hears from women in
conservative political and media
circles. She gave examples of
what they’ve told her: “My
career would be over.” “I’m
thinking I should speak up
against certain people but it
would ruin me.” “I internalized
it for years. And hid behind
work.”
Hughes told me that she is
appalled at the way Fox News
has given plenty of airtime to
the sexual-harassment and
sexual-assault charges against
liberal Hollywood mogul
Harvey Weinstein but has
virtually ignored its internal
scandal that resulted in the falls
from grace of network cofounder Roger Ailes and host
Bill O’Reilly. (Fox gave only 11
minutes of airtime to Ailes in a
five-week period last summer
when it was huge news
elsewhere, The Washington
Post’s Paul Farhi reported.)
“The silence is deafening,” she
said. “Over the last few weeks, I
have watched in utter disbelief
at the weak coverage and failure
to address the elephant in the
room.”
And although she once was
ensconced in the conservativemedia world, she’s more than
disenchanted.
“They are so quick to throw
hate,” she said. “And they’ve
turned their backs on this whole
issue.”
Hughes says her core
conservative beliefs are mostly
intact. But on some issues —
particularly those related to
women — her recent
experiences “have made me step
back.”
“I’m a lot more sensitive now,”
she said. Living with her
husband and two young
children outside Nashville, she
rarely goes out by herself
because of the cruel remarks
that people make.
And she not only isn’t
working, but has few
prospects.
“It’s very frustrating —
especially since I think I have a
lot to say on the questions of the
day.”
She is waiting for her suit to
come to trial, hoping to clear
her name and start over.
People told me, “If you go
public, you’re going to be
buried.” They were right, she
said.
Hughes’s case is something
now for a court, not a
columnist, to rule on. But what
is clear is that her coming
forward has taken a huge toll on
her life and career.
It’s also clear that Fox News
— which has given such lavish
coverage to the charges against
Weinstein — can seem like a
champion of women’s issues.
But only when it fits the
network’s own worldview.

All-too-real
takedown
of for-profit
law schools
BY
C ARRIE D UNSMORE
One of the things I didn’t expect
when I became a lawyer was just
how much it would ruin legal
fiction for me. So much of what I
see and read is so far from reality,
it’s hard for me not to yell out, “No,
it doesn’t work like that!” Brandnew attorneys do not argue major
issues in court; no one bursts into
the courtroom with a last-minute
piece of evidence that will win the
case. From “Ally McBeal” to “How
to Get Away With Murder” and, of
course, “Law & Order” — being a
lawyer ruined them all.
But
what
about
John
Grisham? His
latest
novel,
“The Rooster
Bar,” centers on
a group of law
students at a
third-tier, forprofit
law
school who find
THE ROOSTER
themselves on
BAR
By John Grisham the losing end
of a scam. When
Doubleday.
I began the
368 pp. $28.95
book, I braced
myself for disappointment: I would point out all
the ridiculous mistakes, nonsense
subplots and sloppy law. Sure, Grisham is a former attorney, but I
figured after 30-plus books he
would have descended into cliche.
Well, mea culpa, Mr. Grisham. I
stand corrected. This is a legal
book that lawyers can read. (It’s
also pretty great for non-lawyers,
too.) Not only is it free of any major
legal gaffes, but it also addresses a
problem within the legal profession that deserves attention: the
deceptive practices of for-profit
law schools.
Grisham’s three characters —
Mark, Todd and Zola — have eagerly entered the Foggy Bottom Law
School with hopes of high-paying
careers after graduation, dreams
encouraged by the school’s marketing material and loan officers.
Alas, by their third year, they have
learned the hard truth: The law is
an elitist profession, and it is practically impossible for the students
to get any job upon graduation, let
alone the mythical six-figure positions that go to graduates from
top-tier law schools. Instead, students from little-known, albeit expensive, schools find themselves
saddled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of student debt, no
prospects and little chance of ever
repaying their loans.
In Grisham’s smartly told tale, a
tragedy strikes, and Mark, Todd
and Zola decide to begin on a path
that might seem improbable but
was scarily plausible to me: They
drop out of school, head over to
D.C. municipal court, and, without a license, start hustling clients. They assume false names
and set up as many legal scams as
possible and make as much money as fast as they can.
I’m sorry to say that I believe in
the hectic world of traffic and municipal courts someone could easily pretend to be a lawyer. They
would be caught eventually but
could definitely get away with it
for a short while. The other legal
malfeasances, largely relating to
class actions and medical malpractice, are believable as well.
Sure, there are some lucky coincidences and things happen on a
very expedited timeline in this
fast-paced novel, but no more than
you would find in your average
thriller.
Moreover, “The Rooster Bar”
highlights the appalling way that
many for-profit law schools ruin
many of their students.
In the author’s note, Grisham
writes that his book was influenced by an article in the Atlantic
called “The Law-School Scam,” a
lengthy investigation of for-profit
law schools. Bravo to him for using
his star power to shine another
spotlight on an all-too-real problem in this gratifying and all-tooreal book.

At the Kennedy Center,
an awkward sort of grace
THEATER FROM C1
with lyrical silvery voices: Eisa
Davis, Alicia Hall Moran and
Imani Uzuri, called “The Three
Graces,” now joined, now soloing
in a gentle lullaby. Spoken-word
artists Aja Monet and Carl Hancock Rux, the resonant baritone
speaking voice of the latter rolling out his texts. The dancer
Francesca Harper, moving gently
along with some of the words.
The whole thing culminated with
no less a luminary than the fierce
Nona Hendryx, who got the
whole company and the audience
singing along. But her closing
message was simply, “Grace will
set you free.” Is that really adequate to the anguish of Trayvon
Martin and all the other senseless
deaths? It felt as if Weems was
falling back on a slightly hackneyed answer — as if she didn’t
quite know how to make use of all
that creative firepower.
Critic B: Certainly there were
awkwardnesses. But the whole
evening was in a way about facing
those awkwardnesses, about the
junction of art and human life,
and the question of how art can
deal with or transcend the raw
horror of events. The work is a
meditation on grace, and what
constitutes grace, and the grace
of acknowledging tragedy. It had
its genesis in the image of President Barack Obama singing
“Amazing Grace” during his eulogy to a victim of the massacre in
Charlestown, S.C., in 2015. This
kind of grace is a part of the
African American tradition, by
default — something forced on a
community that’s been subject to
repeated bouts of senseless violence. It’s a quiet dignity. You
don’t howl. You sing, gently. You
stand, with pride. And, like Emmett Till’s mother, you leave the
casket open.
Critic A: I would have loved to
see more of that in evidence on
the stage, rather than left to my
inference. What actually played
out, in the performance, was
more well-meaning than genuinely evocative.
One exception was the number
performed by a multiethnic
WILLIAM STRUHS
Carrie Mae Weems, left, performs in “Grace Notes: Reflections for Now,” which made its D.C. premiere Friday night at the Kennedy Center.
group of steppers, the Kappa Psi
Hop Team of the Omega Psi Phi
Fraternity, founded in 1926. The
sharp, explosive, percussive gestures, performed in perfect unison — arms and legs out at
straight angles, slamming into
one another — represented an
amazing fusion of form and content, tradition and expressivity,
emotion channeled into formal
expression through hours and
years of hard work.
Critic B: I agree that it stood
out. But I’d say the point of the
piece as a whole was that it set
out to present a collage of overlapping voices and experiences
around questions of just such
emotion, and that the effectiveness of individual moments in it
could be taken as the proof that it
worked.

MUSIC REVIEW
D.C.’s GoldLink plays homecoming king at Fillmore show
BY
C HRIS R ICHARDS
“What a time, what a year.”
Hope you caught those six
words when they came shooting
out of GoldLink’s mouth on Friday
night. Turns out, they were the
most prescient lyrics from the District rapper’s breakout single,
“Crew,” a cool spritz of braggadocio that continues to spill out of
open car windows, hanging
around in our city’s public airspace like a beautiful smell. You
can sniff it outside the Beltway,
too. “Crew” sits at No. 46 on the
Billboard Hot 100, and on Oct. 13,
RCA Records announced that the
song had gone platinum.
Yet somehow GoldLink wasn’t
in the mood to celebrate on Friday
night — at least not straight away.
He launched into the first set of his
doubleheader at the Fillmore Silver Spring with an almost workmanlike precision, throwing
words into the air as if he were
hammering nails into a wall. Performing tracks from his most recent album, “At What Cost” —
which features a wide cast of Wash-
ington talent, including Wale, Kokayi and Mya, the great R&B singer
who appeared as a surprise opener
on Friday — GoldLink blasted
through most of his homecoming
gig without much help. Just a DJ, a
microphone and the turbines he’s
apparently hiding in his chest.
Can we talk about this man’s lung
power? When most rappers turn
the microphone toward the crowd,
they’re initiating a singalong to cover for their breathlessness. But every time GoldLink did it Friday, it
was a genuine invitation to participate. He never needed a breather,
which meant the fireworks never
stopped. Washington has never
produced a rapper with a greater
physical command over the music.
He was all rat-a-tat during
“Meditation,” a moody song about
a dream girl from around the way
who eventually became the one
that got away: She went to the
University of Maryland, she loved
Backyard Band, and she won’t get
out of his head. “Years later, I still
think about it,” he rapped, racing
through his heartsickness as if trying to outrun it.
APRIL GREER FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
GoldLink performs Friday at the Fillmore Silver Spring. The District artist’s breakout single, “Crew,”
featuring Brent Faiyaz and fellow D.C. rapper Shy Glizzy, was certified platinum Oct. 13.
But the most dramatic mood
swing of the evening came during
the grand finale of “Crew,” when
GoldLink brought the song’s intoxicating coolness to a jubilant boil.
He was joined by hook-man Brent
Faiyaz, who seemed too delighted
by the occasion to bother singing
along with his backing track, and by
Shy Glizzy, another District rapper
whose pungent, sing-songy flow
felt like the perfect counterpoint to
GoldLink’s stunning staccato.
When it was over, the trio made
this happy moment easy to savor.
They re-cued the track and performed “Crew” again, start to finish — this time, flanked by members of GoldLink’s entourage who
stormed the stage wearing big
smiles, carrying a few large platinum plaques over their heads.
And when it was really over, GoldLink dropped his microphone to
the floor with a theatrical kathunk, and a spontaneous chant
erupted from the crowd: “DEECEE! DEE-CEE! DEE-CEE!”
What a time, what a year, what a
song, what a song, what a night.

CLASSIC PEANUTS
y cousin the Queen of
Hearts is a bit neurotic,” the Queen of Diamonds
confided to Alice as the players at the Mad Hatter’s took a
tea break. “She can’t realize
that losing a trick can be better than winning one.”
“Of course, your majesty,”
Alice sighed.
“Deal,” said the Queen.
“I’ll show you.”
RHYMES WITH ORANGE
Alice became declarer
at today’s four hearts, and
West, the Hatter, led a spade
in deference to the March
Hare’s overcall. The Hare
took the queen and ace,
stroked his whiskers and
led the king. When Alice followed, the Hatter paused for
an instant ... and pitched a
club!
“Off with his head,” the
Queen of Hearts roared. “He LIO
could have won a trick with
me.”
Alice ruffed in dummy and
let the nine of trumps ride,
losing to the queen. She had
to lose a second trump to the
king and went down.
“See?” the Queen of
Diamonds murmured. “If
West ruffs the third spade
with the queen of trumps,
you finesse twice against
East’s king and make the
HAGAR THE HORRIBLE
game.”
And so it was.

You are the dealer. What is
your opening call?
ANSWER: You have a
sound opening bid. Some
players would open one
diamond, planning to bid
two clubs after a majorsuit response, but I dislike
distorting the suit lengths,
especially with minimum
values. Open one club. If
partner responds in a major,
rebid two clubs or bid 1NT.
Either action is mildly misdescriptive but will limit your

This year you become
more adventuresome.
You are unusually
fortunate during the
next few months. Use this
period to forge ahead in key
areas. Your emphasis could be
on money and security. If you
are single, you attract many
different kinds of people.
Consider what type of bond
you want. If you are attached,
the two of you enter a very
special year where you feel
much more connected than in
the past. Your caring nature
means a lot to your sweetie.
Sagittarius encourages you to
take risks.
ARIES
(MARCH 21-APRIL 19).
Working with a partner adds
to your strength and sense of
well-being, even when you do
not agree on some things. You
invite discussion and differing
points of view. The majority
of the time, a better idea or
decision comes forward.
TAURUS
(APRIL 20-MAY 20).
You’ll listen to a close
associate and know that
there is value in what is being
shared. You can’t help but feel
appreciated, even if there is
a difference of opinion. You
will express your thoughts in
a different way so that this
person can grasp your ideas.

CANCER
(JUNE 21-JULY 22).
You might want to open up a
conversation that surrounds
a creative project or a new
friend. You’ll hear all types
of feedback and opinions,
whether you are interested or
not. Be willing to share more of
yourself.
LEO
(JULY 23-AUG. 22).
Be willing to take a risk,
especially if you hear someone
else say that the opportunity
seems good. Expect some
confusion when discussing
your expectations and
intentions with a loved one.

(AUG. 23-SEPT. 22).
Be willing to change direction.
A challenging situation might
present itself. Continue
discussing the possibilities.
You might feel as if the
other party involved is overly
idealistic, whereas this person
views you as pessimistic.
LIBRA
(SEPT. 23-OCT. 22).
You communicate what is
on your mind in such a way
that your opinions are easily
accepted. You could be tired
of dealing with a confusing
matter. You could feel as
if your thoughts are being
distorted.

dealing with a money matter.
You don’t want to take an
unnecessary risk, but if you
can handle a loss, then go for
it. A loved one is a supporter
of yours.
SAGITTARIUS
(NOV. 22-DEC. 21).
You express a playfulness
as well as a willingness to
understand more of what
others want from you.
Someone you respect could be
informative. An encouraging
friend is likely to inspire you to
make the impossible possible.
CAPRICORN
(DEC. 22-JAN. 19).
Seek out advice, and
then listen to suggestions
carefully. You might not be in
agreement, but you will find a
way to come to an acceptable
midpoint.
BEETLE BAILEY

AQUARIUS
(JAN. 20-FEB. 18).
Be more forthright. You might
not be seeing a financial
matter as clearly as you would
like to. In fact, someone could
be deceptive about a money
matter involving both of you.
Check facts and figures.
PISCES
(FEB. 19-MARCH 20).
Be more serious than
you have been. Consider
another alternative to a matter
involving work. Others look
to you for leadership and
ideas. Just be yourself, and
you will find that everything
will work out.

bite you, rabies is a bigger concern than blood loss.
he animal kingdom is chock-full of critters that look like something out of a nightmare. Although some
of them have earned their bad reputations, others are far less frightening than they seem. Here are a few
seemingly spooky species you should get to know a little better.
Vampires of all kinds
What do vampire bats, vampire
squids, vampire squirrels and
vampire deer have in common?
They’re not vampires. Mostly.
Vampire squids are neither
vampires nor squids: They’re related to squids and octopuses, but
they’re actually the last of an
ancient group that belongs in
neither category. And instead of
blood, they eat bits of creatures
and junk that sinks into the deep
sea. We know less about vampire
squirrels, but scientists are pretty
sure the myths about them sucking deer blood are false. The
rumors probably started because
the fluffy beasts have unusual
(and weirdly threatening) tufts
on their ears. Vampire deer do
have fangs, but they use them for
fighting, not eating.
Vampire bats are the only critters in the bunch that definitely
drink blood, but the natives of
Latin America seldom go after
humans. If one is silly enough to

Giant spiders
The hundreds of spiders that
fall under the tarantula category
can grow so big you might have
trouble holding them with one
hand. The so-called Goliath birdeater is a perfect example of a
misunderstood tarantula; it rarely eats birds. And luckily, tarantulas aren’t dangerous to humans.
Lots of even freakier-looking
arachnids, such as the whip spider, are also relatively harmless —
although some can pinch you a
little if they get scared.

Cute but dangerous
Slow lorises seem too adorable
to be real. But those cute little
arms hide glands full of toxins.
When threatened, slow lorises
can lick their glands to create a
painful bite. Some humans who
are particularly sensitive to loris
goo swell up or even have trouble
breathing when bitten. Given
that — and the fact that the
animals are endangered — you
shouldn’t ever try to tickle a cute
little loris. You’re way better off
getting cuddly with a tarantula.

tarantula has a fearsome
reputation that’s greatly

Their religious beliefs differ. Can she
have faith in their marriage enduring?
By Jeff Stillman
Adapted from
a recent online
discussion.
Dear Carolyn: I
am agnostic, but
my boyfriend is
religious. He has
recently become
more devoted to
his religion and is not certain
but thinks he will want a union
in his faith, which does not allow
marriage to a non-adherent.
If we were to compromise and
marry outside the church, there
would be serious consequences
for him (read:
excommunication).
We will not ask each other to
abandon our beliefs, but I have
volunteered to learn more about
his faith and explore my options
for conversion . . . though
honestly I doubt this is even
possible for me.
Maybe you see an option we
have missed? Or are we just
prolonging the inevitable at this
point?

decision fully and could only
admire his integrity. I’m proud
that he won’t fake belief.

Convert or Bust?: The standard
answer for a couple with
cultural/religious/political
differences is that it can work if
both of you believe in making it
work, and if it’s your priority to.
In this case, though, it sounds
not only as if religion is his
priority, but also that his
priorities are in flux, with
religion growing in importance
to a degree as yet unknown.
It’s not unthinkable,
therefore, that you can convert,
and mean it, and still not be
religious enough for him to see
NICK GALIFIANAKIS FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
you as his true partner.
If it will help you make a
decision without what-ifs, then,
by all means, learn more about
his faith and explore your
options.
But if what you see isn’t
something you can embrace fully
— meaning, if your commitment
would ultimately be to the man
and not to the faith — then you
need to consider that you’d enter
a marriage with him with
distinctly different ideas of what
that marriage means. And that’s
a tough obstacle to clear.
Re: Religious differences: In my
case, I’m the religious one and
my husband is the atheist. We’ve
been married a long time, and
our views have changed over the
years, but my husband has
gradually become more and
more hostile to religious beliefs.
For me, the test was when we
were asked to give a prepared
speech with boilerplate language
about faith. My husband
absolutely refused to parrot
words he disagrees with so
Home delivery starts your day off right.
Re: Convert or Bust: When you
marry someone, you often marry
not only your partner but also
the family — to greater or lesser
degrees — and you marry a
culture. In my case, I come from
a very proper (or uptight,
depending on your view)
Episcopalian background, but I
married into an untamed Irish
Catholic family with free-for-all
dinners and far more noise than
I was used to.
It’s not that one is right or
wrong, but you both need to
accept this is all part of the
package — or you shouldn’t do
it. Your partner does not exist in
isolation.
— Anonymous
Anonymous: Well said, thank
you both.
Partners don’t exist in
isolation, yes, but our
experiences with them do, in a
way — we process them in the
solitude of our own minds.
That’s why the decisive opinion
has to be how the letter-writer
feels in the company of someone
as devoted to his faith as this
boyfriend is. This could preempt
all the rest.

days overflowing with other
emotions. There was anger in
1971, when the Senators’ final
game before skipping town was
cut one out short by fans running
rampant on the field. There was
nostalgia in 1996, when Redskins
fans overwhelmed security at the
team’s final game in the District,
pouring onto the field to dig up
pieces of turf as souvenirs. There
was excitement in 2007, when the

houston — The closest the
Houston Astros came to losing
everything they had spent the
previous six months building
came in the moments following
their loss to the New York Yankees
in Game 5 of the American
League Championship Series on
Wednesday evening. Not only did
they trail the Yankees by a game
now in the best-of-seven series,
putting them in the wholly unfamiliar position of facing a do-ordie game 48 hours later in Houston, but as they filtered into the
visitors’ clubhouse at Yankee Stadium after the third of three
straight losses, they had the shellshocked looks of people still trying to process some horror.
They didn’t look defeated, but
for perhaps the first time, they
looked as if they could look ahead
and see the path to defeat. Some
of them spoke openly of how
rattled they had been by the hostile, charged atmosphere at Yankee Stadium.
It was at that moment, just
minutes after the final out of
Game 5, that Astros veterans Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann,
one after the other, stood up and
spoke to the rest of the team.
“I know they were thinking
about the situation,” Beltran
would say later. “I know they were
thinking, ‘Wow, we came here
with a 2-0 lead, and now we’re

o Washington Redskin got quite as fired up for games against the Philadelphia
Eagles in recent years as wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who was bent on
avenging his unceremonious release after six years of service. ¶ So it was fitting
that when the Redskins opened their 2017 season against the Eagles, the first
offensive play — a deep throw over the middle — was scripted for Terrelle Pryor Sr., the
wide receiver they envisioned as the successor to Jackson in a big-play role. But a
potential touchdown fell incomplete as Pryor struggled to locate the ball in the sun while
streaking downfield. ¶ It was the first hint of what Redskins coaches already understood
but was less clear to fans and pundits who had grown intoxicated with Pryor’s promise
during training camp in Richmond, where the former NFL quarterback’s rare speed,
impossibly long stride (at 6-foot-4) and huge hands (size XXXXL gloves) made him look

Time for NBA story lines, starting with a not-so-super team in Oklahoma City
I joined the NBA’s
opening night a
bit late last week,
tuning in to the
NORMAN
Boston CelticsCHAD
Cleveland
Cavaliers game on
TNT with a minute left, and
witnessed LeBron James driving
to the basket, pivoting with one
foot, pivoting with the other,
then pirouetting into the lane for
a critical layup while taking four
steps or so, which, last time I
looked, is at least 21/2 steps
beyond the spirit of the law.
It was an illicit thing of beauty,
unnoted by TNT hollering
specialist Kevin Harlan or TNT
feckless specialist Reggie Miller.
Then again, I’ve seen LeBron
walk from Akron to Cleveland
without dribbling and without
being called for a traveling
violation.
Anyway, I took a sip of
Yuengling, scratched my pit mix
Daisy on the belly, shook my
head ruefully at Toni, a.k.a. She
Is The One (And Then Some)
and, channeling my best inner
Couch
Slouch
Hyman Roth, I said to myself,
“This is the business we’ve
chosen.”
This is the NBA.
It is large, talented, beautiful
men performing wondrous
athletic feats, while we root for
one or the other. And if, from
time to time, LeBron or a mere
mortal of the sport stretches the
rules and the referees eat their
whistles, so be it; it is the
business we have chosen, and we
love the game.
While we take in that
epiphany, I would also like to
briefly touch upon some
absorbing story lines to follow as
a new NBA season unfolds:
Carmelo Anthony has taken
his talents to Oklahoma City.
Good luck, OKC. Supposedly, the
Thunder has put together the
latest super team, with Anthony,
Paul George and Russell
Westbrook, except, by definition,
no team that includes Melo can
be a super team.
It’s pretty simple: While there
is no “i” in team, there is a lot of
“me” in Melo.

Thomas keeps rolling,
wins fifth title of 2017
Justin Thomas beat Australia’s
Marc Leishman on the second
playoff hole Sunday to win the
inaugural CJ Cup in Jeju, South
Korea, and cap his breakout year
on the PGA Tour.
Thomas sealed his fifth tour
title in the calendar year — and
his first of the new 2017-18 PGA
Tour season — when he birdied
the second extra hole and
Leishman made bogey after
finding the water.
The pair went to a suddendeath playoff after completing the
first U.S. PGA Tour regular season
event in South Korea tied at 9under-par 279.
Thomas, who shared the
overnight lead with Scott Brown,
fell behind when he had a double
bogey on the 550-yard, par-5 No. 3
hole.
Thomas regained the lead and
looked set for the win in
regulation until he bogeyed the
par-3 17th hole. But he made
amends with a birdie at the last to
join Leishman in the playoff.
The PGA champion said he is
looking forward to some time off
after his breakout season.
“I’m so excited to not do
anything,” Thomas said. “I
officially have nothing left in the
tank at this moment.”
Leishman, who ended a fiveyear drought on the PGA Tour
when he won the Arnold Palmer
Invitational in March then added
the BMW Championship in
September, looked to have
slipped out of contention when he
bogeyed holes No. 5, 7 and 8 to
tumble down the leader board.
But he birdied No. 9, No. 12 and
No. 14 to join Thomas at 9 under
then finished bogey-birdie to get
in the playoff. . . .
Eun-Hee Ji fired a 7-under 65
to win the Taiwan Championship
in Taipei for her first LPGA Tour
title since the 2009 U.S. Women’s
Open. Ji, who had a six-stroke
lead after three rounds, carded
seven birdies to finish at 17-under
271, six strokes ahead of Lydia
Ko, who also closed with a 65. . . .
Bernhard Langer made a 15foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th
hole to overcome a mediocre
round and win the Dominion
Energy Charity Classic in
Richmond, the first event in the
Champions Tour’s Charles
Schwab Cup playoffs.
Langer, even par for the day
before getting to the easiest hole
on the Country Club of Virginia’s
James River Course, beat Scott
Verplank by one shot. . . .
In Sotogrande, Spain, Masters
champion and tournament host
Sergio Garcia won the European
Tour’s Andalucia Valderrama
Masters by one shot over Joost
Luiten after shooting 4-under 67
in the final round.

Third-seeded Karolina
Pliskova cruised to a 6-2, 6-2 win
over fifth-seeded Venus Williams
at the WTA Finals in Singapore.
In Sunday’s other match,
second-seeded Garbine

Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. . . .
Juan Martin del Potro won his
20th career title, beating Grigor
Dimitrov, 6-4, 6-2, in a successful
title defense at the Stockholm
Open. It was the Argentine’s first
title since he beat Jack Sock in
last year’s Stockholm final. . . .
Damir Dzumhur recovered
from a second-set slip to beat
Ricardas Berankis and win the
Kremlin Cup in Moscow.
Bosnia’s Dzumhur beat his
Lithuanian opponent, 6-2, 1-6,
6-4, to win his second career ATP
title after a victory last month at
the St. Petersburg Open.
AUTO RACING
Lewis Hamilton further
tightened his control on the
Formula One season
championship, winning the U.S.
Grand Prix in Austin ahead of
title rival Sebastian Vettel, who
finished second in a race he said
he had to win.
The Mercedes driver continued
his dominance of the Circuit of
the Americas, winning at the
track for the fourth year in a row.
The victory extended
Hamilton’s championship lead
over Vettel to 66 points with three
races left.
RUNNING
Italy’s Eyob Faniel won the
Venice Marathon after a bizarre
incident in which the leading six
runners took a wrong turn.
Favorites Abdulahl Dawud,
Gilbert Kipleting Chumba,
Kipkemei Mutai and David
Kiprono Metto were among the
leading group which followed a
motorcycle off the course after 25
kilometers (16 miles), covering
several hundred meters before
being made aware of their error
and turning back. They lost
around two minutes.
Faniel, who runs for the local
Venice Marathon Club, was
around a minute behind the
leaders at the time but found
himself leading the race along
with Mohammed Mussa, whom
he immediately passed.
The 25-year-old Faniel went on
to become the first Italian to win
the race in 22 years.

The Warriors again are very,

Young rarely passes, rarely

To be a super team, you first
must buy into the concept of
team, and Melo has not done this
since his one season of
matriculation as a studentathlete at Syracuse University —
can’t remember what he was
majoring in — in 2002-03.
In Melo’s me-first NBA world,
he gets his points, he gets his

Melo never makes any

message: “Audi Field 2018.”
With emotions and memories
flowing, with former players and
coaches bearing witness and an
original league archrival providing opposition, United completed a forgettable season in an
unforgettable two-plus decades
at the 56-year-old relic.
Three miles away at Buzzard
Point, 20,000-capacity Audi Field
is rising two blocks from Nationals Park. United plans to open the
gates in June after a heavy
stretch of away matches and
perhaps a few “home” games at
other locations in the region.
“It’s been an emotional day,”
said United Coach Ben Olsen,
who played the entire 50-minute
alumni match — and “scored” by
throwing the ball into the net —
before changing into a suit and
tie.
“There’s an emotional level to
this, but there’s also an excitement, obviously, with Audi Field
and also just to get this season
over with and turn the page.”
Before turning the page, United celebrated its past, one that
included four league titles and
several other trophies. Dozens of
former players participated in
weekend festivities. On the 20th
anniversary of the 1997 MLS Cup
championship, Arena, John
Harkes and others paraded with
the gleaming hardware.
It was a particularly touching
moment for Harkes, whose son,
Ian, is a rookie midfielder.
“You look back,” John Harkes
said, “and you think about how
lucky we were to have so many
great moments.”
“It was a great day to celebrate
RFK and see all the players back,
guys I grew up watching,” said
Ian, a Gonzaga High graduate.
“It’s the result we didn’t want, but
just give the fans one last time
before we move into a new era.”
With a third consecutive defeat, United (9-20-5) finished last
in the Eastern Conference and
tied with the Los Angeles Galaxy
(8-18-8) for the fewest points (32)
in the 22-team league. (With a
superior victory total, D.C. finished ahead of the Galaxy.)
Locked into the last playoff
slot and awaiting a first-round
match midweek, the Red Bulls
(14-12-8) rested many regulars
and brought only five reserves
instead of the usual seven.
Energized by the huge crowd
— 21/2 times above average —
United was on its front foot
almost the entire first half. Typical of the dour season, however,
numerous opportunities were
squandered.
Alas, a breakthrough came
just before intermission as Luciano Acosta crossed to Paul

D.C. United’s Paul Arriola, left, and the Red Bulls’ Kemar Lawrence collide Sunday at RFK Stadium.
Arriola for an eight-yard volley
and his first goal since joining
the club in August.
The upper deck bobbed like it
did in the golden days of RFK
sporting events (Senators, Redskins, Nationals, United, World
Cup, etc.). Contained by the wavy
roof, the sound ricocheted
around the concrete structure for
what seemed like several minutes.
With the goal, United avoided
setting the MLS record for scoreless performances in a season; it
claimed a share of the mark (with
the 2010 United squad) with 17
shutouts in 34 outings.
After United missed additional chances, the Red Bulls drew
even in the 68th minute on sweet
combination work between Michael Amir Murillo and Muhamed Keita. Murillo lifted the
ball over goalkeeper Steve Clark.
Two minutes later, Acosta was
red-carded for a moment of petulance. He missed a glaring opportunity, took offense to Alex Muyl’s
bump, then kicked a New York
player. The suspension will carry
over to the 2018 opener.
New York went ahead in the
75th minute. Muyl, a former
Georgetown standout, crossed
from the right side. United’s Nick
DeLeon failed to contain Gonzalo
Veron, who scored from close
range.
Clark prevented further damage in the 84th, stopping Veron’s
penalty kick following defender
Jalen Robinson’s handball.
Referee David Gantar allowed
71/2 minutes of stoppage time for
injuries and video review and
was followed off the field by an
irate Olsen, ever the feisty competitor, even in a meaningless
match.
Afterward, current players
were recognized and the attending alumni were introduced.
They were presented game day
scarves by Kathleen Kennedy
Townsend, the eldest of Robert
and Ethel Kennedy’s 11 children.
Then there were fireworks and
a final walk to the locker room.
Said United General Manager
Dave Kasper: “A pretty emotional
day, just to take that all in and say
goodbye one last time to this
building.”
Notes: United goalkeeper Bill
Hamid, an impending free agent
who is preparing to join Danish
club Midtjylland in January,

awarded to the winner of the
season series. They won twice
and tied once.

Perhaps it’s time to shift our focus from Michigan to . . . Notre Dame
On
Football
state college,
pa. — Overheard
Sunday morning
in a hotel elevator,
among two female
Penn State fans:
“Did you see
Coach Harbaugh’s interview? He
looked shellshocked. One of those
coaches with his job on the line.”
Now, wait, wait, whoa, whoa,
whoa. By no rational standard are
Michigan and Jim Harbaugh
even one smidgen shy of lucky to
have one another. Yet the
observation did carry its
narrative value. Somehow, it
never seemed we would find
Harbaugh amid his third
Michigan season, in a little
interview room beneath Beaver
Stadium, the door opening and
shutting to the sounds of
merriment outside, while he
politely answered polite
questions about trying to extract
value from a dented season with
dashed goals.
How? How did we think
Harbaugh would avoid this
normal fate of college football,
with its shifting forms and its
weary searches for commanding
quarterbacks to encourage
forlorn college towns? Was it the
cult of the coach run amok that
led us to the mysterious
supposition that Harbaugh
would be immune?
Did we get tipsy on NFL
mystique?
“Yeah, I thought their offense
played extremely well.
Understatement,” he said of Penn
State with a daze that might not
have risen to the level of
shellshocked. “They were hitting
on all cylinders. The back
[Saquon Barkley] was really
good, as advertised. And they
were hitting on all cylinders. The
quarterback was hot, and the
receivers made plays downfield,
and it was impressive.”
After two Michigan seasons in
which everything went up and up
and up in maybe the country’s
most-watched coaching
situation, here’s a first levelingoff. Study the eight losses (in 33
games) Harbaugh has taken, and
the 42-13 Penn State pounding
does stand out. It’s neither fluky
nor absurd nor first game nor
first season. It doesn’t hinge on a
suspect spot of the ball. It
showcased a Michigan offense
that plunged to No. 98 nationally
in yards per game and No. 99 in
yards per play, and did anyone
expect such a normal human
thing from Harbaugh’s third
season? If anything, Michigan’s
bursts of offensive prowess in the
second quarter, when the score
narrowed briefly to 14-13, misled
the eye until the eye finally
noticed the 269 total yards,
lowest figure of the year. Instead
of a fresh, novel uptick, it’s a
typical college football slog, an
offense rummaging around
looking for some dynamism.
That means an offense in a
special situation with a special
coach in a special college town
has a pedestrian, run-of-themill issue seen in town upon

It’s also a mid-third-year loss
that shooed Michigan off the edge
of the national picture and
spurred its players into an
unwanted conversation during
the waning minutes, the
conversation about how to derive
meaning from here, with here
being 5-2.
“You know, some of us were
talking about it on the sideline
near the end of the game,”
quarterback John O’Korn said.
“Last year at this point, Penn
State was, for me growing up
here, I thought that was one of
the worst Penn State teams I’ve
ever seen. They went on [and won
the Big Ten] and should have won

goals, but like I said, it’s up to us,
the guys within our four walls, to
make a decision, to make this
what we want it to be.”
“With college football,”
running back Karan Higdon said,
“things happen all the time.”
Yes, they do, to the point of a
cherished senselessness. It’s just
that looking down the pike back
in December 2014, the old tool of
things-happen-all-the-time
optimism wouldn’t have seemed
necessary once Harbaugh hit his
third year, even though of course
— of course — it could turn out
this way.
“I don’t know, either,”
Harbaugh said. “Yeah, we’re
going to regroup, we’re going to
refit, retool, get back to work,
more opportunities ahead of us.”
And: “Nobody can help us but
us.”
Is it solvable within this
season?
“Yes.”
His postgame message? “The
fake love’s gone,” O’Korn relayed.
“There’s no bandwagon. You
know, it’s us. That’s what we
want. Whether we’re doing great
or we’re doing bad, it’s just all
about us. That’s what it’s going to
be about is us as a team, the guys
inside, nobody outside. You know,
we’ll find out a lot about this
team and this program over the
next few weeks. We’ve got a great
group of guys. Don’t expect
anybody to quit or give up. We’re
5-2. I think everybody’s freaking
out outside of our four walls.”
In this case, the freaking-out
stems partly from the fantastic
and sacrosanct coach and the way
he repaired a seven-year malaise
so rapidly in fall 2015. Now he,
and they, will play Rutgers,
Minnesota, at Maryland, at
Wisconsin and Ohio State, and
for much of that, the national eye
won’t look much.
Instead, it will look to . . .
Notre Dame?
What?
While No. 2 Penn State (7-0)
goes barreling into No. 6 Ohio
State (6-1), the corner of one eye,
remarkably, must tilt toward
South Bend, Ind. There, Notre
Dame has persisted with football
operations in secrecy. Notre
Dame has done so after a 4-8
season in 2016 after which
everyone presumed its program
disbanded. It has done so after a
20-19 home loss to Georgia on
Sept. 9 discontinued the need to
pay any attention to Notre Dame
this season, even as Georgia has
turned out 7-0 and No. 3.
Supposedly, Notre Dame

For D.C. United and fans, one last night of love at RFK
felt mostly like love — for a place as
anachronistic in modern sports as
black-and-white newsreels or
foam fingers, score hotlines or 10cent hot dogs. Nothing about the
56-year-old stadium fits in 2017;
not the architecture, not the dark
and reeking concourses, not the
peeling paint, not the amenities
that would embarrass a minor
league baseball team. And yet
more than 41,000 people — soccer
lifers, D.C. sports fans and
hardcore United supporters —
pumped the joint full of electricity
and love at least one last time.
“It’s a broken-down, dirty old
dump, but it’s our broken-down,
dirty old dump,” longtime United
fan Brad Clements said, words
repeated over and over
throughout the afternoon, often
with some profanities mixed in.
Like me, Clements had climbed
into the stadium’s especially
decrepit upper deck during the
first half of United’s seasonending 2-1 loss to the New York
Red Bulls just to wander around
and soak in the view. Behind him
was that unforgettable look
toward the city’s core: the broad
expanse of East Capitol Street, the
Capitol dome, the Washington
Monument. That vista is so
different from those offered at
Nationals Park and Capital One
Arena, which are tucked into
tighter quarters and almost sneak
up on you. Don’t even mention
FedEx Field, that alien spaceship
plopped down among gas
stations and fast-food chains.
But RFK was pasted into the
city’s design, a place you pointed
out to relatives from the top of

WASHINGTON ST. 28,
COLORADO 0
DAN STEINBERG
STEINBERG FROM D1
SATURDAY’S LATE GAMES
Washington National Cathedral, a
place that beckoned as you biked
east from Capitol Hill or drove
west from Maryland or followed
the crowds from the nearby
Metro station. You saw the
familiar swooping profile
looming in front of you, and you
felt like you were heading
someplace important, to a
building that mattered.
“From day one — Oct. 7, 1961 —
D.C. Stadium [as it was then
called] was centered in this city’s
scheme of things as sports
stadiums elsewhere seldom are,”
the great critic Benjamin Forgey
wrote a quarter-century ago this
week. “The stadium, despite its
rather anonymous architectural
image, did and does say
‘Washington’ in a unique way.”
United’s fans inherited that
uniqueness after the Redskins
bolted for Maryland — and then
they hopped it up with smoke
bombs and sweat and soul.
Perched in the highest reaches of
the stadium, Clements wasn’t the
only one taking in the bouncing
stands and the supporters who
had helped turn this generic
multiuse stadium into a temple of
American soccer.
“It’s a throwback. All the new
stadiums — like Yankee Stadium
— they feel like a mall,” 28-yearold Mark Cunningham said. As he
talked, the crowd howled;
“Doesn’t the noise feel different?”
Cunningham asked. “That roar? I
don’t know. It’s pretty pure.”
Purity in putrefaction, maybe,
but he’s not wrong. There was an
official program of events Sunday,
with an alumni game and a
postgame ceremony and
90 minutes of Major League
Soccer in between. But as with so
many other afternoons at RFK
Stadium, it often felt like the fans
were in charge of the agenda.
They orchestrated the cheers.
They took over the concourse at
halftime with a raucous, earpiercing drum circle, happy chaos
created together by old men and
shirtless 20-somethings and kids
on parents’ shoulders.
They waved flags, clapped to
and beyond the final whistle.
Then some of them stomped on
those classic orange seats until
they splintered, looking for a
souvenir. There was something ad
hoc about it all, something
populist. Somehow, the adults in
suits had allowed the people
control over this one last venue.
“The inmates kind of ran the
asylum here for two decades,”
said Paul Sotoudeh, a longtime
leader of the Screaming Eagles,
one of the largest supporters
groups. “The myth of RFK, the
legend of RFK — we got to create
that on our own.”
“It ignores any appearance of
corporate professionalism,” Alex
Harkavy added. “It stood the test
of time as a lesson in pure
functionality. You’re always going
to have fun here, and there aren’t
stadiums meant to do that
anymore.”
And so fans met boyfriends and
girlfriends and husbands and
wives here; “This was the old
MySpace,” said one, who found
two different boyfriends at this
stadium. They got drunk in the
infamous Lot 8 as 20-somethings
and then grew up and brought
their kids here as 30- and 40somethings. Some went from
childhood to adulthood in the
building, such as Carlos Castellon,
who was 7 when he attended MLS
Cup in 1997, “and I’ve been here
ever since,” he said. Others — such
as United Coach Ben Olsen —
spent the prime of their lives
roaming the place’s ridiculous
catwalks or tunnels or green
centerpiece; “20 years of my life
was spent on this field,” Olsen told
the crowd after the game.
“It’s a community,” as United
legend John Harkes put it, using a
word so many others had hinted at
all afternoon. “It’s gritty. It’s real.
It’s authentic. And we love it.”
It’s also well past its prime,
easier to mourn when something
better awaits. Some supporters are
nervous about whether they will
be as central to the game-day
experience at the new, corporatebranded stadium at Buzzard Point.
Others can’t wait to inhabit a place
that doesn’t smell, a place that will
take United out of its decaying
time warp and into modernity.
There will still be more events
at RFK as the city tries to figure
out how best to use the valuable
site. That means at least one more
goodbye — in the form of a
wrecking ball — and more
retrospectives and more
memories. But it’s hard to
imagine a more loving goodbye
than the one the old pile of
concrete received on this night.
“Look at it,” said Srdan Bastaic,
another longtime supporter,
shirtless and spent after hours of
screaming, as he scanned the
emptying building. “I don’t know,
man. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?”

Brees outplays Hundley, powers New Orleans
SAINTS 26,
PACKERS 17
Imperfect
Seattle still
a contender
Quarterback’s first start
for Green Bay is spoiled
SEAHAWKS 24,
GIANTS 7
BY
G ENARO C . A RMAS
green bay, wis. — The way that
the New Orleans Saints won on
the road Sunday might serve as a
valuable lesson in their quest to
return to the playoffs.
The defense gave up a long
touchdown run on the first series
to the Green Bay Packers. Drew
Brees threw two interceptions.
And the Saints weren’t even out of
the first quarter yet at Lambeau
Field.
But Brees bounced back to
throw for a touchdown and run
for another, Mark Ingram rushed
for a score and the Saints recovered for a 26-17 win.
Green Bay lost its first game
with Brett Hundley starting at
quarterback for the injured Aaron Rodgers.
“Well, [we] find a lot of ways to
win, pretty resilient,” Brees said.
Wil Lutz kicked two secondhalf field goals, including a 44yarder to put New Orleans up for
good at 19-17 with 10:26 left in the
game. Brees’s one-yard sneak
gave the Saints a two-score lead
with 4:55 left.
The sloppy Saints were fortunate to get their fourth straight
victory. But after taking the first
three games by at least 14 points,
they will savor a win earned following several early mistakes in
addition to Brees’s picks.
New Orleans’s defense gave up
a 46-yard touchdown run to rookie Aaron Jones on the opening
drive, Lutz saw an extra point get
blocked and the Saints (4-2) were
penalized seven times for 80
yards.
Still, New Orleans pulled away
late at overcast Lambeau Field,
scoring on four second-half
drives before running out the
clock. It’s a good sign for a club
hoping to make its first playoff
appearance since the 2013 season.
“I wouldn’t call us a dominant
team, but we’re striving to be that
type of team,” Brees said. “I think
what I like is that we’re encountering a lot of different situations
and things in games and finding
different ways to win.”
After holding the Packers (4-3)
to a three and out inside the
20-yard line, New Orleans drove
55 yards in eight plays to seal the
game with Brees’s sneak over the
goal line.
Brees finished 27 for 38 for
331 yards, while Ingram ran for
BY
New England before Jones’s TD.
In the first quarter alone, there
were seven penalties, including
six on the opening drive of the
game by New England. The flags
cost the teams 55 yards in the 0-0
opening period. To keep the sloppiness going, Patriots left tackle
Nate Solder drew an illegal motion call on the first play of the
second quarter, and Adrian Clayborn’s roughing-the-passer penalty negated an interception and
helped set up Cooks’s TD.
Things got cleaner in the second half.
On the injury front, Falcons
linebacker Duke Riley was sidelined by a knee injury in the first
half.
Patriots linebacker Dont’a
Hightower, sidelined earlier this
season with a knee problem, left in
the second half with a shoulder
problem. Defensive lineman Malcom Brown left with an ankle injury.
Up next, the Falcons will visit
the New York Jets on Sunday and
the Patriots will host the Los Angeles Chargers.
east rutherford, n.j. — It was
a tempestuous day for the Seattle
Seahawks, full of protest and contentiousness and strife. The brand
of football they played against the
New York Giants often was virtually impossible to watch, and their
exasperation was on vivid display
at times.
Yet somehow the Seahawks
emerged from all of it in the thick
of the NFC West race, and, as much
by attrition as anything else, in the
middle of the conversation about
which team will emerge as the
NFC’s Super Bowl participant.
The Seahawks beat the Giants,
24-7, Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
It was a mostly unattractive game
that was not nearly as stress-free
as the score suggested. But for
Seattle, it served its purpose. The
Seahawks upped their record to
4-2, keeping them within a halfgame of the Los Angeles Rams, the
surprising division leaders. The
Seahawks already have beaten the
Rams this season.
In the bigger picture, the NFC’s
spot in the Super Bowl is there for
the taking, and the Seahawks, despite their obvious flaws, have a
chance to secure it.
“We’ll see,” Seattle defensive
tackle Sheldon Richardson said.
“It’s definitely wide open.”
The Green Bay Packers are
without Aaron Rodgers. The Dallas Cowboys could lose Ezekiel
Elliott for six games if the NFL
secures the right in court — again
— to enforce its suspension. The
Rams and Philadelphia Eagles
have second-year quarterbacks
who are perhaps not yet quite
ready for the biggest games and
the brightest lights. There are others in the mix, from the Washington Redskins to the Minnesota
Vikings to the New Orleans Saints
to the Atlanta Falcons to the Carolina Panthers.
But the Seahawks have a core of
players who went to two Super
Bowls. They have marquee players
on defense. And they have quarterback Russell Wilson and wide
receiver Doug Baldwin to help
patch things together on offense.
“I don’t know how to grade us
right now,” defensive end Michael
Bennett said. “I just think we’ll
take it week by week.”
This was an afternoon that began with eight Seattle players who
were in uniform sitting on the
bench during the playing of the
national anthem before the game;
another was kneeling nearby.
The game turned frustrating for
the Seahawks early. Tight end Jimmy Graham had two egregiously
dropped passes, one in the end
zone on a fourth-down gamble.
Baldwin had a sideline exchange
in which he made contact with
offensive line coach Tom Cable.
“I lost my cool,” Baldwin said.
“It’s 100 percent my fault. . . . I
already apologized to him.”
It was not a problem to the
other Seahawks, though.
“It comes with the territory,”
cornerback Richard Sherman
said. “In the outside world, it’s
kind of misunderstood. They
think about it as disrespect. But in
a locker room, in an environment
like this, we look at each other as
peers, coaches and players.”
A fumble by running back
Thomas Rawls led to a Giants
touchdown. An offensive pass interference penalty called on wide
receiver Tyler Lockett negated his
touchdown catch and left the Seahawks settling for a field goal.
But Wilson threw three touchdown passes, connecting with
Baldwin on a 22-yard lob in the
third quarter, Paul Richardson on
a 38-yarder in the fourth and
Graham on a one-yarder with just
over two minutes remaining. And
that was more than enough.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees extends the ball to score from one yard out in the fourth quarter. He also threw for 331 yards and a TD.
MIKE ROEMER/ASSOCIATED PRESS
The Packers’ Brett Hundley finished 12 for 25 for 87 yards with an
interception in his first start in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers.
105 yards on 22 carries.
The Packers couldn’t generate
big plays late without Rodgers.
He’s out indefinitely with a broken right collarbone.
Instead, Coach Mike McCarthy
turned to a running game that
initially threw off the Saints.
Jones had 131 yards on 17 car-
ries. Hundley showed toughness
in running for a 14-yard score to
give Green Bay a 14-7 lead with
8:37 remaining in the second
quarter.
But the Packers managed just a
46-yard field goal from Mason
Crosby in the second half, which
gave them a brief 17-16 lead.
The Saints took over from
there, and the Packers couldn’t
keep up through the air.
“I’m particularly disgusted
with the second half,” McCarthy
said. “As a head coach, when your
team doesn’t perform and drops
off the way it did in the second
half, I’m disappointed.”
Hundley finished 12 for 25 for
87 yards. He was intercepted by
safety Kenny Vaccaro on a deep
ball down the middle of the field
with 4:20 left, ending the Packers’
comeback bid.
Besides Brees’s two picks, the
Saints’ rough first quarter also
included a punt fumbled by Ted
Ginn Jr. at his 20. But New Orleans got a break and retained
possession when the Packers’
Josh Jones was whistled for fair
catch interference.
Brees added another milestone
to his impressive 17-year career,
becoming the fourth player in
NFL history with at least 500
touchdown passes, including the
playoffs. He joined Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Tom Brady.
Ginn finished with 141 yards on
seven catches, while fellow Saints
wide receiver Michael Thomas
finished with 82 yards on seven
receptions.
The Packers’ pass-catching
playmakers were shut down with
Hundley running the offense.
Tight end Martellus Bennett was
the team’s leading receiver with 17
yards on two catches. Jones had
three catches for seven yards.
“The name of the game is we
have to execute,” Hundley said. “I
didn’t play well enough. We didn’t
score enough points to win the
game.”
Hall of Fame quarterback Bart
Starr made an emotional return
to Lambeau Field. The 83-yearold Starr joined other former
Packers when the organization
honored members of the 1967
championship team. That squad
won the “Ice Bowl” against the
Dallas Cowboys before taking the
title against the Oakland Raiders.
Starr is recovering from two
strokes and a heart attack suffered in 2014.
Saints starting right guard Larry Warford did not return after
halftime because of an abdominal
strain.
Up next, the Saints will host the
Chicago Bears on Sunday. The
Packers have a bye week before
they return to host the Detroit
Lions on Nov. 6.

Brady, New England defeat Atlanta again in Super Bowl rematch
PATRIOTS 23,
FALCONS 7
BY
B ARRY W ILNER
foxborough, mass. —Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes,
and the New England Patriots
toyed with the Atlanta Falcons —
sound familiar? — in winning,
23-7, in a fog-filled Super Bowl
rematch Sunday night that wasn’t
particularly super.
New England scored the final 31
points to win the NFL championship in February. Placards and
shirts reading 28-3 were ever-present in and around Gillette
Stadium as the Patriots (5-2)
scored the first 23 points in this
prime-time mismatch. The Falcons (3-3), who led New England
by that 25-point margin in the
third quarter of the Super Bowl
before folding, were outplayed
throughout this one.
While Atlanta looked tentative,
if not intimidated, Brady and his
offense clinically tore apart the
Falcons. Mixing runs and passes,
New England controlled the clock
and field position. And its defense,
ranked at the bottom of the entire
league through six weeks, stymied
the NFL’s fifth-ranked offense.
Brady threw a shovel pass to
wide receiver Brandin Cooks that
traveled perhaps a foot, and Cooks
used his speed to get into the left
corner of the end zone. The other
touchdown was a two-yarder to
running back James White, who
had three touchdowns, including
the winner, in the Super Bowl.
It got so bad for Atlanta that the
usually reliable Matt Bryant saw a
field goal get blocked and then put
a 36-yarder off the left upright.
That Super Bowl losers’ malaise
folks talk about might have found
a home in the ATL this year.
Stephen Gostkowski had no
trouble sending field goals of 29,
21 and 38 yards through the fog for
New England.
The Falcons seemed ready to
end the string of points allowed to
the Patriots at 51 when they got to
the 1-yard line early in the fourth
quarter. But Matt Ryan, who
struggled all night, was off-target
to Julio Jones in the end zone.

On a foggy Sunday night in New England, quarterback Tom Brady
threw for 249 yards and two TDs to lead the Patriots to victory.
Then wide receiver Taylor Gabriel
lost four yards on a fourth-down
run.
Even the fans in the upper deck
who could barely see through the
haze at that point let out a huge
cheer, then Gostkowski added his
third field goal to extend New
England’s mastery of Atlanta to 54
straight points.
Jones’s one-yard touchdown reception with 4:09 to go ended the
schneid, and he hurled the football high into the mist as if to say
“at last.”
The Falcons surrendered 20
straight points in last week’s loss
to Miami, and then 23 in a row to

VIKINGS 24,
RAVENS 16
BY
J EFF Z REBIEC
minneapolis — Terrell Suggs,
the Baltimore Ravens’ vocal and
emotional leader, leaned against a
concrete wall in the far corner of
the visiting locker room at U.S.
Bank Stadium. A hat obscuring
his eyes and his head mostly
down, the normally fast-talking
and upbeat veteran paused to collect himself.
Rarely in his 15-year NFL career
has the rush linebacker been at a
loss for words, even for a moment.
“Excuse me, man. I’m sorry,”
Suggs said in response to the first
question before continuing. “It’s
disappointing and extremely frustrating, but you know, the team
was built around the defense.
We’re not playing good football
right now. I don’t really have any
answers for you.”
A 24-16 defeat to the Minnesota
Vikings, who dominated the game
in every facet before an announced crowd of 66,751, left the
Ravens (3-4) searching for elusive
answers and encased by even
more doubt about their viability as
a playoff team.
“We just ain’t playing Ravens
football. The team is built around
the defense. We ain’t got to be
perfect, but we definitely have to
play better than what we are doing. We’re seven games in. We have
nine left. Right now, we stink. You
can all write it. . . . But with the
schedule going ahead, I still think
we can do something magical. You
all know what kind of team we are
once we get into the show. We have
an AFC home game on Thursday.
You defend your home turf, everything can look up for you.”
Playing without their top three
wide receivers, the Ravens were
held out of the end zone until Joe
Flacco hit Chris Moore for a 13yard touchdown pass with no time
on the clock. That was Flacco’s first
touchdown pass since the third
quarter of a Week 4 loss to the
Pittsburgh Steelers and the team’s
first offensive touchdown overall
since early in the second quarter of
the Week 5 victory over the Oakland Raiders. It also was little
more than window dressing on
the scoreboard.
Despite the returns of top run
stuffer Brandon Williams and fellow defensive lineman Carl Davis,
the Ravens allowed 169 rushing
yards and Latavius Murray’s 29yard touchdown run in which the
Vikings running back ran through
the middle of the defense while
barely being touched.
Even the Ravens’ normally
strong special teams unit, which
nearly bailed them out in the previous Sunday’s overtime loss to the
Chicago Bears with two return
touchdowns, faltered in allowing
three lengthy returns.
It all added up to Baltimore’s
fourth loss in five games and a
score that was nowhere near indicative of how much better the
Vikings (5-2) were than the Ravens on Sunday afternoon. The
Ravens are under .500 for the first
time this season, and they have to
pick up the pieces in time to face
the Miami Dolphins on Thursday
night at M&T Bank Stadium.
Baltimore’s defense had a hard
time getting off the field against
backup
quarterback
Case
Keenum, allowed points on seven
of 10 possessions — Kai Forbath
kicked six field goals — and appeared to wear down in the second
half. But the reality was the Ravens were probably doomed when
they lost their top receiver, Mike
Wallace, to a concussion early in
the first quarter.
They were already without Jeremy Maclin, Breshad Perriman
and Chris Matthews, so when Wallace went down after a high and
penalized hit by safety Andrew
Sendejo, they had only three remaining wide receivers against a
Minnesota defense that was much
too fast and talented to struggle
with what the Ravens had to offer.
“We’re not into all of that. The
reality is what it is,” Ravens Coach
John Harbaugh said. “We have to
find a way to go do what we have to
do. We didn’t turn the ball over,
and that was a goal in this game.
We thought that would give us a
chance, but we didn’t do enough of
the other things we needed to do
to win the game.”
Flacco was sacked five times,
the Ravens couldn’t run the ball,
they went just 6 for 16 on third
down and they struggled to win
matchups downfield. About the
only positive thing to say about the
offense was that Flacco didn’t
throw in interception in completing 27 of 39 passes for 186 yards
and a touchdown.
Those numbers were padded
significantly by the team’s meaningless late touchdown drive. Before that, the Ravens’ sole source
of offense was kicker Justin Tucker, who made kicks from 48, 57 and
47 yards, and was the reason the
visitors went into halftime trailing
just 9-6.
“You get better, you look at
where you made mistakes, but I
wouldn’t say that we are trying to
fix something that is completely
broken,” Flacco said. “We can’t
look at it that way. We have to look
at the areas that we can do things
well in and continue to exploit the
defense in those things that we do
well. We will make it happen. We
have to keep our heads up and play
one game at a time.”
Several of the Ravens on offense
seem to understand, though, that
the unit’s continued struggles are
threatening to sink the season.
There’s no doubt that the defense
has been a disappointment and
that its inability to stop the run is
odd. However, too much is still
being asked of the defense, which
almost has to score on its own or
force a turnover for the team to
have chance at winning.
“We have to figure it out: running game, passing game,” said
wide receiver Michael Campanaro, who caught three passes for
31 yards. “It’s definitely the biggest
thing on everyone’s mind right
now: just getting the offense going, helping out the defense and
just getting points on the board.”

Blake Bortles set up Indianapolis with a curveball. Jacksonville’s
dominant defense finished it off
with a shutout.
With rookie RB Leonard Fournette inactive, Bortles threw for a
season-high 330 yards and one
touchdown and the defense tied a
franchise record with 10 sacks in
the Jaguars’ lopsided victory.
“We obviously were able to get
to their quarterback,” Jacksonville Coach Doug Marrone said.
“Guys were ready to step up.”
Under the circumstances, the
Jaguars (4-3) couldn’t have scripted a better combination.
They spent the week fine-tuning their deep throws, and it
worked perfectly. Bortles completed first-half passes of 52, 50
and 45 yards, all longer than his
previous season best of 35 yards.
He wound up 18 for 26 and finished with a rating of 124.7.
T.J. Yeldon, who helped fill in
for the injured Fournette, ran
nine times for 122 yards, including a 58-yard scoring run.
Jacksonville matched the
10 sacks it had at Houston in the
season opener.
Indianapolis fell to 2-5 and was
shut out for the first time since a
41-0 loss to the New York Jets in a
playoff game Jan. 4, 2003.
Rookie S Eddie Jackson turned
a painful anniversary into a record-setting afternoon.
He scooped up a loose ball and
corralled a tipped pass. And with
two long touchdown returns, he
made NFL history.
Jackson became the first player to score multiple defensive
touchdowns of 75 yards or more
in a game, leading Chicago past
Carolina.
Jackson’s big day came exactly
one year after he broke his leg
playing for Alabama against Texas A&M.
“I’d dealt with adversity before,” Jackson said. “I’ve been
through a lot of stuff in my life.”
Jackson ran back a fumble recovery 75 yards on the game’s
opening possession and returned
an interception of Carolina QB
Cam Newton 76 yards for a score
early in the second quarter to
give Chicago a 14-0 lead.
He became the first Bears player since Fred Evans in 1948 — and
the first NFL player since current
Washington Redskins linebacker
Zach Brown did it for Tennessee
in 2012 — with two defensive TDs
in a game.
Chicago also sacked Newton
five times and intercepted him
twice. The big plays by Jackson
and the defense lifted the Bears
(3-4) to their second straight win.
The Panthers (4-3) dropped
their second in a row.
When all else fails, Tennessee
can turn to K Ryan Succop.
Succop’s fourth field goal — a
47-yarder with 1:55 remaining in
overtime — extended his NFL
record for makes inside 50 yards
to 55 straight and sent the Titans
to an ugly victory over winless
Cleveland, which also lost durable Pro Bowl OT Joe Thomas
with a triceps injury.
Succop’s clutch kick kept the
Titans (4-3) tied for first place in
the AFC South. Succop made five
field goals in last Monday’s win
over Indianapolis and then converted from 43, 23 and 46 yards
before missing a 53-yarder with
8:44 left in the fourth quarter.
However, with the Titans and
Browns headed toward a tie, Succop delivered.
“We’re very fortunate to have
him,” Titans QB Marcus Mariota
said. “It’s huge.”
Browns rookie K Zane Gonzalez forced overtime by kicking a
season-long 54-yard field goal
with 47 seconds left in regulation
to tie it 9-9. Gonzalez added
kicks of 31 and 47 yards.
But the Browns (0-7) committed 12 penalties.
Ezekiel Elliott gained
219 yards from scrimmage and
tied a career high with three
touchdowns just days after a legal reprieve put his suspension
on hold, and Dallas routed winless San Francisco.
Elliott was granted his second
temporary restraining order
Tuesday, putting his six-game
suspension over domestic violence allegations on hold, and
then gave the Cowboys (3-3) a big
boost on the field.
Elliott matched his season total of rushing TDs with two in the
first quarter and then took a
short pass from Dak Prescott
72 yards for another touchdown
on Dallas’s first possession of the
second half to put the 49ers (0-7)
away. Elliott ran for 147 yards on
26 carries to go with the big
catch, setting a career high in
yards from scrimmage.
That performance spoiled the
starting debut of San Francisco
rookie QB C.J. Beathard, who was
sacked five times, lost two fumbles and failed to lead the 49ers
into the end zone until he scored
on a run with the game out of
hand in the fourth quarter.
Ben Roethlisberger threw for
224 yards and two touchdowns,
Le’Veon Bell added 192 total
yards, and Pittsburgh’s defense
dominated Cincinnati in the second half of the Steelers’ win.
Pittsburgh (5-2) relied on its
stars to take the lead and then on
its reinvigorated defense to hold
it and give itself a significant
cushion over the rest of the underwhelming AFC North.
The Bengals (2-4) came in
looking to add some credibility
to their resurgence after their 0-3
start but instead spent the second half reverting to the kind of
ineffective offense that got Ken
Zampese fired as coordinator
two weeks into the season. The
Steelers picked off Andy Dalton
twice and sacked him three times
over the final two quarters.
Roethlisberger put together
easily his best 30 minutes of the
season in the first half. He hit
WR Antonio Brown for a sevenyard TD to cap Pittsburgh’s first
drive and found a wide-open
JuJu Smith-Schuster for a 31yard score in the second quarter.

Travis Benjamin returned a
first-quarter punt 65 yards for a
touchdown and caught a 42-yard
TD pass in the fourth, and
Los Angeles beat Denver and
played a dominant defensive
game in the first home victory of
its relocation season.
DE Joey Bosa had two of the
Chargers’ five sacks while they
sent the Broncos (3-3) to the
franchise’s first shutout defeat
since a 24-0 loss to the Los Angeles Raiders on Nov. 22, 1992.
Philip Rivers passed for
183 yards in his 100th victory, hitting RB Austin Ekeler for an early
touchdown and Benjamin for the
clincher.
The Chargers (3-4) have won
three straight under new Coach
Anthony Lynn following a winless opening month in their first
season back in Los Angeles after
56 years in San Diego.
Trevor Siemian passed for
207 yards, but Denver lost to the
Chargers for just the third time
in the rivals’ past 14 meetings.
The Broncos might have been
able to preserve their non-shutout
streak with long field goals in the
fourth quarter. But Coach Vance
Joseph went for it twice on fourth
down and ended up with an interception and a turnover on downs.

Former GM
testifies in Redskins’
grievance o≠ense is
over firing strange but
e≠ective
JERRY BREWER
BY
AND
L IZ C LARKE
M ARK M ASKE
BREWER FROM D1
Former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan has taken
the next step in the grievance he
filed with the NFL this summer
over his firing, providing testimony under oath to lawyers representing the team during the discovery phase of the process.
The development was first reported by NBC Sports’s Mike Florio and was independently confirmed Sunday by two people
familiar with the process.
The Redskins fired McCloughan “for cause” on March 9,
two years and two months into a
four-year contract, and asserted
they were not obligated to pay his
salary for the remaining 22
months of the deal. Shortly after
the team-owned radio station
speculated McCloughan was
abusing alcohol, a team official,
speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Washington Post
that McCloughan was ousted because he had reported to work
intoxicated.
McCloughan has countered
that he was fired unjustly and is
seeking the balance due on his
contract, estimated to be as much
as $2.6 million, via the NFL’s
grievance process.
As part of the grievance’s discovery phase, lawyers representing both the Redskins and McCloughan have exchanged affidavits regarding his tenure with the
team. They have also exchanged
lists of witnesses they would plan
to call if the dispute isn’t settled
during the discovery phase and
goes to a hearing, two sources
said Sunday.
Peter Harvey, a former New
Jersey attorney general, was appointed by NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell as the hearing officer, sources confirmed.
The Redskins said they had no
comment Sunday. McCloughan
could not be reached for comment.

Bills 30, Buccaneers 27
Buffalo rookie CB Tre’Davious
White didn’t have much time to
stew after allowing Tampa Bay
WR Mike Evans to score a goahead touchdown.
The next time White took the
field, he stripped the ball from
Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries
to set up Stephen Hauschka’s 30yard field goal with 14 seconds left
to secure the Bills’ victory. Buffalo
erased a 27-20 deficit by scoring
twice in the final 2:28.
“We’re finding ways to win,”
said White, Buffalo’s first-round
draft pick out of LSU.
Bills RB LeSean McCoy overcame his own miscue. Bouncing
back from a lost fumble, McCoy
scored his second TD on a sevenyard run to tie the score at 27.
Add it up and Buffalo (4-2) has
a winning record through six
games for just the fourth time
since its 17-season streak of not
making the playoffs began.
The Buccaneers (2-4) dropped
their third straight game.

FIRST QUARTER

Tampa Bay: FG Murray 25, :22.
2017. Yet quarterback Kirk
Cousins somehow has thrown
nine touchdown passes.
It all adds up, amazingly, to the
NFL’s seventh-most productive
offense. Since a feeble home
showing in Week 1 against
Philadelphia, Washington has
averaged 401.8 yards while
winning three of its last four
games.
It’s a wacky juxtaposition: The
more this team fails to get the
ball to its most lauded players,
the more it makes progress.
Huh?
“I don’t know what to say,” said
Gruden, the head coach and
offensive play caller.
Washington adopted the motto
“By Any Means” this season, and
it used to seem like nothing more
than a trite phrase to decorate the
locker room. But the players have
embodied their mantra so far,
overcoming injuries, surviving on
improved depth and adjusting to
whatever challenge the next
game presents. The offense has
turned into the most dramatic
example of that.
It has no high-usage weapons,
not even Thompson, who makes
the most of a modest number of
touches. Eleven players have
caught at least one pass. Four
have rushed for at least 100 yards.
Washington has spread 12
offensive touchdowns among
seven players.
You can’t call this offense great,
and by season’s end, it may not
even be considered good. But it’s,
well, something. It’s refreshing.
And if Washington can protect
Cousins better than it did against
the Eagles in the opener, this
abnormally effective offense just
might exploit Philadelphia’s pass
defense, which ranks 29th in the
league, in this rematch Monday
night.
“I know we’d like to feature a
certain guy here and there,”
Gruden said. “I’d love to get
Jordan Reed more touches. I’d
love to get Crowder more
touches. But at the end of the day,
you call a play. If it’s man to man,
we like this matchup. Zone?
We’ve got to read this coverage
and go here and use this route
combination. Sometimes it’s luck
of the draw. Sometimes it’s by
design. But I feel really good that,
when I call a play and I’ve got
four or five eligible receivers, that
any one of those guys can win and
be effective. So I let Kirk make the
decision and go from there.”
It’s easy to understand why
Washington mixes and matches
at running back. The team
doesn’t have a back drafted
higher than the fourth round. But
it doesn’t lack notable receiving
talent. When healthy, Reed may
be the best receiving tight end in
football. Pryor is a 6-foot-4
athletic marvel who, in his first
year at wide receiver, posted
1,007 yards in Cleveland last
season. Doctson was a 2016 firstround draft pick. In 2015,
Crowder broke Art Monk’s
franchise rookie record by
catching 59 passes, and he
followed it up with 67 receptions,
847 yards and seven touchdowns
last season. And Davis, 33, is a
former No. 6 overall draft pick
still blessed with extraordinary
speed.
When Washington let 1,000yard receivers Pierre Garcon and
DeSean Jackson leave in free
agency, the expectation was that
Reed and Crowder would receive
a heavier workload. After Pryor
signed a one-year deal, it looked
like the offense had three solid
options to lead the passing game.
With Doctson, Thompson and
Davis playing supporting roles, it
seemed like Cousins had plenty of
help. So far, Gruden and the front
office have been right about the
depth, but Reed and Crowder
have been limited by injuries and
Pryor is searching for comfort in
a new system.
Despite those problems,
Cousins has progressed with the
schedule, getting more efficient,
manufacturing more big plays
and refraining from taking
foolish risks. In the first game
against Philadelphia, Cousins
finished with a substandard 72.9
passer rating and committed
three turnovers. Over the last
four games, he has one turnover
and hasn’t posted a passer rating
below 97.6. He has surpassed 300
yards twice and he has a
completion of at least 50 yards in
his last three outings.
The current offense isn’t
consistent, but somehow, it’s
dangerous. The receivers drop
passes, and there are instances of
miscommunication, but the
players are starting to make up
for it with big plays. They aren’t
missing many of those
opportunities. It fits the new
personnel. They have replaced
proven with big and athletic.
They’re kind of random, but
they’re explosive.
Combine those weapons with a
versatile offensive line, and
Washington is able to do
whatever is necessary right now.
Can that work for an entire
season? Probably not. But it’s also
unlikely that Reed, Crowder and
Pryor will continue to produce at
a Ryan Grant level.
“Most of those guys, if they’re
great competitors, are going to be
disappointed in their stat
production, but I like the way
that Kirk is spreading the ball
out,” said Gruden, who added
that he has spoken to his
receivers about staying patient
and remaining unselfish.
“I try to let them know that
fantasy football is fantasy,”
Gruden continued. “Sometimes
when you have a couple of star
players — like Pierre and DeSean
— it puts pressure on a play caller
and a quarterback that, ‘I’ve got
to get DeSean the ball, otherwise

QB Palmer breaks arm,
could miss eight weeks
QB Matt Moore replaced an injured Jay Cutler (ribs) and threw
two touchdown passes in the final
12 minutes to lead Miami to another comeback victory.
Rallies are becoming routine
for the Dolphins, who pulled off
another improbable win by erasing a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat New York.
Josh McCown threw three
touchdown passes and ran for another for the Jets, but his interception in the final minute set up
the winning field goal.
CB Bobby McCain stepped in
front of a pass intended for WR
Jermaine Kearse to give Miami
the ball at the Jets 27-yard line
with 39 seconds left. Cody Parkey
kicked a 39-yard field goal with
22 seconds to go.
It was the second consecutive
comeback win by the Dolphins
(4-2), who overcame a 17-point
deficit in the second half a week
ago for an upset win at Atlanta.
“It’s a belief in one another,”
said defensive end Cameron
Wake, who had 21/2 sacks.
Miami avenged a Week 3 loss to
the Jets (3-4).

Arizona Cardinals quarterback
Carson Palmer broke his left arm
Sunday in a 33-0 loss to the Los
Angeles Rams at Twickenham Stadium in London, leaving Drew
Stanton to take over after the team
returns from its bye week.
Palmer will require surgery on
the arm, and Coach Bruce Arians
said he expects the quarterback to
miss eight weeks.
That leaves Stanton, who has
been Palmer’s backup since the
two joined the team before the
2013 season, to lead the offense.
Stanton, a 10-year veteran,
went just 5 for 14 for 62 yards and
an interception in the Cardinals’
first shutout loss since 2012.
Palmer was attempting a deep
throw to wide receiver J.J. Nelson
with 5:48 remaining in the first
half when he took a hard hit from
Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree.
That hit led to an interception
by safety Lamarcus Joyner. Palmer
finished 10 for 18 for 122 yards
with the interception.
The Cardinals fell to 3-4.
DOLPHINS: A person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press that Miami quarterback Jay Cutler is believed to
have suffered a cracked rib in the
Dolphins’ 31-28 win over the New
York Jets that will force him to
miss at least one start.
Cutler threw for two touchdowns Sunday before he went to
the locker room with a chest injury
after being hit by linebacker Jordan Jenkins in the third quarter.
Matt Moore replaced Cutler and
rallied Miami to the victory.
Moore is expected to make his
first start of the season Thursday
night at Baltimore vs. the Ravens.
BROWNS: Iron man left
tackle Joe Thomas could miss the
rest of the season after injuring his
left triceps in Cleveland’s 12-9
overtime loss to Tennessee.
Thomas, a 10-time Pro Bowl
pick, had played 10,363 consecutive snaps while starting 167
straight games when he was
forced to leave in the third quarter.
RAVENS: Baltimore wide receiver Mike Wallace left the game
he’s going to get upset.’ So you call
plays, and you try to force the
issue. But now we just try to go
with the flow of the game and
whoever gets it, gets it.”
At some point, the offense will
have to prove it can call plays for
its best weapons and watch them
deliver with great efficiency. For
now, the players are just grateful
for their versatility. They’re good
enough to make this wonky
situation work, and for that,
Cousins credits the coaches.
“It’s a moving target because
they may start to say, ‘Hey, we are
better at this phase of our offense
than we thought we would be,
but we are not as strong in
another phase. So let’s adjust on
the fly and start to create some
plays and formations that accent
that better,’” Cousins said. “I am
very pleased with the way our
coaches have worked really hard
to create game plans that put us
in a position to be successful.”
This transitory offense has
kept Washington in contention
early this season. Soon it will
morph into something else
because it must. And that will
actually be a sad day.

following a first-quarter hit from
Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo in
a 24-16 loss at Minnesota.
The hit was delivered hard
enough to knock Wallace’s helmet
off and draw an unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty on Sendejo. Wallace was on his back for a few
minutes before he slowly left the
field on his own power. He was
placed in the concussion protocol.
With Jeremy Maclin (shoulder),
Breshad Perriman (concussion)
and Chris Matthews (thigh) already inactive, the Ravens were
left with only three healthy wide
receivers: Michael Campanaro,
Chris Moore and Griff Whalen.
COWBOYS: Dallas lost kicker Dan Bailey to a groin injury in
the first half of a 40-10 win at San
Francisco.
Dallas went for a two-point conversion following the next touchdown after Bailey’s injury and
couldn’t convert. Safety Jeff Heath
handled the kickoff duties after
that and reached the goal line on
his first kick. He made two out of
three extra-point tries in the second half, becoming the first nonkicker or punter to make multiple
extra points in a game since former Houston linebacker and current Green Bay General Manager
Ted Thompson made four in 1980.
Super return for Timberlake
Justin Timberlake has been invited back to the Super Bowl halftime show, 14 years after the
“wardrobe malfunction” with Janet Jackson caused a national stir.
The NFL announced Sunday
night that Timberlake will headline the Super Bowl halftime show
Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.
This will be the third time for
Timberlake to perform at halftime, the most for any entertainer.
Timberlake performed at the 2001
Super Bowl with ’N Sync, and he
sang “Rock Your Body” with Jackson in 2004 in Houston. That performance concluded with Timberlake ripping her costume to reveal
her right breast bare except for a
nipple shield.
That drew CBS a $550,000 fine
from the FCC that was later overturned.

JOHN MCDONNELL/THE WASHINGTON POST
Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr. (11) has 16 catches on 29 targets this season, fourth on the Redskins.
Pryor tries to match output with talent
REDSKINS FROM D1
“To watch Terrelle play last year
[in Cleveland], you’re blown away
by the production; and to look at a
guy with that skill set, you’re enamored with the intangibles,”
Redskins wide receivers coach Ike
Hilliard said in an interview this
week as the team prepared for
Monday’s prime-time rematch
with Philadelphia. “But it’s still a
progression.”
Pryor, who caught 77 passes for
1,007 yards for Cleveland last year
(his first full season as a wide
receiver), was signed to a one-year
deal in March to help fill the
breach created when the Redskins
let Jackson, who averaged
17.9 yards per catch and changed
defenses simply by stepping on
the field, depart for a bigger paycheck in Tampa Bay.
Through five games, Pryor has
been slow to stake his claim.
His 16 catches on 29 targets
place him fourth on the team. His
best catch — racing past Kansas
City cornerback Marcus Peters for
a leaping, 44-yard touchdown
capped by a backward somersault
into the end zone in a Week 3 loss
— was a beauty. But there have
been drops and missed opportunities in key situations, whether
catchable third-down throws or,
just last week, two open shots at
touchdowns that didn’t pan out.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins has
shouldered responsibility for
throws that have been beyond
Pryor’s reach. “He could have very
easily — with two more accurate
throws — had two touchdowns,”
Cousins said of last week’s misses.
“But I think he is doing a really
good job, and he is working really
hard. I think we have made great
strides.”
But Pryor has been hard on
himself, too, apologizing for letting his teammates down with his
six-catch performance (on 11 targets) in the season-opening loss.
He knows he is capable of more.
“I know I could dominate at this
position, given the chance,” Pryor
said in an interview last week.
He is also coming to grips with
the fact that in Jay Gruden’s offense, the ball is distributed far
more widely than it was in Cleveland, where he was the standout
featured receiver (Pryor had
140 targets in 2016; among Redskins receivers, Pierre Garcon led
all with 116). In Washington, Pryor
is vying for opportunities with a
half-dozen or more teammates —
tight ends, running backs and
wide receivers alike.
“That’s the tough part — to understand, in the type of offense
we’re in, that the ball is going to
get spread around,” Pryor said.
“When the ball comes to you, just
make the play! You have to take
advantage of every opportunity
on every ball that comes your way.”
Reinventing himself
With Pryor among several Redskins on one-year deals, the question emerges as the 2017 season
nears its midpoint: Can he assert
himself as a go-to weapon in
Gruden’s offense enough to justify
a second contract?
By necessity, reinventing himself has been a theme of Pryor’s
NFL career.
At 28, he is playing for his third
NFL team, playing his second position and trying to develop as a
wide receiver while working with
his fourth quarterback in the past
14 months.
Such instability might undermine the confidence of some players, but it has only steeled Pryor,
whose life has been a test of his
ability, to find a home (both literal
and figurative) and overcome
hardships without becoming embittered.
It was his mother, Pryor said,
who provided him with his first
image of what strength looked
like.
“Seeing my dad leave her, her
being alone, working two, three,
four jobs for three children — that
stuff is ingrained in you,” Pryor
said. “A lot of time people turn to
drugs to handle that. I just try to
keep my mind strong, try to think
as positive as possible. . . .
“There are two ways you go
about it: You can be negative and
let [hardship] define and shape
you; or you can shape it. I try to
attack in a way of me shaping it. At
the end of the day, I’m going to
believe that I have something to
do with how I come out of this
thing.”
On the football field, that has
meant hard work and plenty of it.
He trained in the offseason with
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver
Antonio Brown, whom he respectfully calls a “weirdo-freak” for the
meticulousness of his regimen. A
diligent student of the game, Pryor is an attentive, active participant in meetings, Hilliard said. He
logs extra workouts before and
after practice, catching 400 balls
on the JUGS machine daily. And
from the moment he signed with
the Redskins, he has invested in
his relationships with Cousins
and the coaching staff to speed up
his learning curve in Gruden’s offense.
Hilliard calls Pryor “a joy to
coach.”
Former Ohio State coach Jim
Tressel, a mentor to this day, is
even more effusive.
“He was such a perfectionist,”
said Tressel, now president of
Youngstown State, of what drew
him to Pryor when the young athlete was a two-sport star in high
school. “He wanted to do everything for the youngsters he grew
up with, and he put them on his
shoulders and took them to state
championships in football and
basketball. He wanted to do the
same in college. I think he always
felt that he could make something
of himself — and make a difference for his family and his home
town.”
Quarterback to wide receiver is
a position switch that few have
pulled off in the NFL — far trickier,
for myriad reasons, than defensive back to wide receiver or vice
versa.
At quarterback, a certain
amount of protection is required
and expected — if not by the pocket, by the NFL rule book. For wide
receivers, contact is a given.
“It’s not for everybody,” said
Hilliard, a former first-round
draft pick whose 12-year NFL career included eight surgeries. “If
[middle linebacker] Zach Brown
is standing there ready to knock
your head off, it’s a little different.
You got to want to do that.
There’s also the art of body control.
After Pryor was released from
Cincinnati in 2015, Cleveland gave
him one month to train at wide
receiver, a position he had never
played. He spent three, four hours
daily working with a personal
trainer on his movement — not
only drilling specific routes but
maintaining his balance whipping around cones and working
on keeping his knees bent (not
easy at 6-4) to get maximum explosion out of his breaks.
He worked on his eyes, too,
practicing the subterfuge that
makes a defender think he is
about to do one thing before he
does the opposite. And he is still
learning to narrow his field of
vision. While quarterbacks must
read the entire defense, Gruden
expects receivers to key their
reads on one defender, which
helps them play faster.
High school standout
This is still relatively new to
Pryor, the most heralded athlete
to come from Jeannette, Pa., a
close-knit town of about 9,000
roughly 30 miles southeast of
Pittsburgh that lost roughly
40 percent of its population in the
1970s as industrial jobs left town.
Pryor was a star for the Jeannette Jayhawks, and it was standing room only whenever he played
basketball or football.
“People rearranged their life
schedule because of the Jeannette
Jayhawks,” recalled Jeannette
Athletic Director Anthony DeNunzio, a 1997 graduate and former game-day announcer at his
alma mater. And with top college
coaches from all over the country
streaming in to see Pryor, the town
felt like a movie set. Penn State’s
top recruiter was in Jeannette so
often, locals claim, that he went
through all 35 flavors of milkshakes at the ice cream shop
downtown recruiting Pryor.
Pryor ended up signing with
Ohio State. Even before Pryor had
committed, Tressel got a phone
call in his New Orleans hotel
around 2 a.m., after the Buckeyes
had lost the national championship to LSU. It was Pryor.
“Coach, don’t worry,” he told
him. “We’re not going to lose any
more games if I come to OSU.”
Said Tressel: “He always believed he could be a differencemaker. But sometimes, we told
him, that can be a problem —
trying to be perfect, trying to
prove everything for everybody.
He wanted to do that for the Cleveland Browns and now for the Redskins. With us, he really pushed
and pushed himself, and if he
wasn’t perfect, he’s very disappointed in himself.
“I think he really has a need to
be counted on. He really wants to
be counted on to help.”

The Redskins managed to hold
Blount in check in their Week 1
matchup, yielding just 46 yards on
14 carries. But over the past four
weeks, Blount has amassed
344 yards at 6.1 yards per carry.
He is a powerful back who is hard
to bring down, and the Eagles’
schemes have provided him
running lanes. Brown has been a
revelation for the Redskins. His
speed to the ball is outstanding,
and he can make himself small to
knife through gaps. Brown has
50 tackles, good for fourth in the
NFL despite the Redskins’ early
bye.

Smith is starting to fulfill the
potential that led to him being
drafted in the second round in
2015. He leads the team with
41/2 sacks, including one against
the Eagles. He mostly will be up
against Peters, who protects
Carson Wentz’s blind side. Smith’s
arm length traditionally has given
Peters issues, but Peters often has
been able to do just enough to
prevent Smith from getting to the
quarterback.

Cox is one of the best defensive
tackles in the NFL, especially
when he rushes the passer. He
recorded a sack against the
Redskins in Week 1 and managed
to generate some pressure on
other snaps. Scherff is developing
into a fantastic guard and has
been nearly flawless of late. The
one defender who has given him
any trouble this year? Cox. This
has been a key matchup of this
division rivalry since Scherff was
drafted in 2015, and both players
have had their share of wins and
losses. Cox missed two weeks
because of an injury but was back
in the Eagles’ lineup last week and
was credited with half a sack and
hit Panthers QB Cam Newton’s
arm on another play to force an
interception.

Containing Wentz
Second-year quarterback Carson
Wentz staged a tour de force in
leading the Eagles to a 30-17
victory over the Redskins in
Week 1, eluding sacks and
throwing a 58-yard touchdown
pass on the run to set a fierce tone
early. To turn things around in
Week 7, the Redskins must keep
him in the pocket and, should he
escape, tackle him en masse.
Much like Ben Roethlisberger, the
6-foot-5, 237-pound Wentz is a
handful to bring down.
Compounding the Redskins’
challenge will be the loss of
defensive lineman Jonathan Allen,
who was placed on injured reserve
after suffering a Lisfranc injury in
the victory last week over San
Francisco.
Patchwork secondary
The Redskins will need outstanding
play from their banged-up
secondary to keep the Eagles’
ninth-ranked passing game in
check. Cornerback Josh Norman
already has been ruled out for
Monday night’s game, and
Bashaud Breeland eased back to
work this week after suffering a
knee injury but appeared to be far
from 100 percent. That means
Kendall Fuller and backups
Quinton Dunbar and Fabian
Moreau need to deliver. The Eagles
have a solid group of wide
receivers in Alshon Jeffery, Torrey
Smith and Nelson Agholor, and
Zach Ertz entered Week 7 leading
NFL tight ends with 34 catches.
NFC East standings
It’s tough to call any game before
the season’s midpoint a “mustwin.” But Monday’s at Lincoln
Financial Field will represent a
huge swing in the Redskins’
prospects of contending for the
NFC East championship. With a
loss, the Redskins would find
themselves swept by the divisionleading Eagles before facing either
the Giants or Cowboys once.
“They’re 5-1, and we’re 3-2,” Coach
Jay Gruden noted. “I mean, just do
the math. If you look at 3-3 and 6-1
and we’ve lost twice to them, that’s
a big difference. [If it’s] 4-2 and 5-2,
[then] we’re right there in the thick
of things as far as the NFC East is
concerned.”

BASEBALL NOTES
Red Sox
end search,
name Cora
manager
A SSOCIATED PRESS
The Boston Red Sox hired
Houston Astros bench coach Alex
Cora to be their new manager
Sunday, turning to a player from
their 2007 World Series championship roster to help the team out
of its current playoff slump.
The Red Sox announced the
hire on Sunday, a day after Cora’s
Astros eliminated the New York
Yankees in the AL Championship
Series. With two days off before
Houston opens the World Series
against the Los Angeles Dodgers,
Boston had a chance to hire Cora
without running afoul of baseball’s ban on major moves during
the Series.
Cora replaces John Farrell,
who led the Red Sox to the 2013
World Series title and in the last
two years claimed the first backto-back AL East championships
in franchise history. But Boston
also finished last twice in Farrell’s
tenure, and the ballclub has won
just one playoff game since winning it all in his first season.
A native of Puerto Rico, Cora is
the first Hispanic manager in for
a franchise that was the last in the
major leagues to field a black
player. The Red Sox faced renewed racial scrutiny this season
after Orioles outfielder Adam
Jones reported being subjected to
racial slurs at Fenway Park.
Cora, who has never managed
before, played 14 years in the
major leagues before retiring in
2011, including parts of four seasons with the Red Sox. He was a
lifetime .243 hitter with 35 homers and 286 RBI. In 2003, he led
the league in putouts and double
plays by a second baseman.
METS: Looking for a fresh
voice to shepherd its prized arms,
New York found it in new Manager Mickey Callaway.
The Mets agreed to a threeyear contract with the Cleveland
Indians pitching coach, according to a person familiar with the
decision. The person spoke on
condition of anonymity because
no announcement had been
made.
A news conference to introduce Callaway is expected in the
next few days.
With his contract set to expire,
Terry Collins stepped down at the
end of the season after seven
years as Mets manager and accepted a position as a special
assistant to general manager Sandy Alderson.
The 42-year-old Callaway, who
has never managed at any professional level, has done an excellent
job as Cleveland’s pitching coach
for the past five seasons under
highly successful skipper Terry
Francona. The Indians led the
major leagues with a 3.30 ERA
and 1,614 strikeouts this season.

Yes, it was ugly, but Dodgers got past putrid stretch
BY
B ARRY S VRLUGA
On Aug. 25, the Los Angeles
Dodgers opened a three-game
homestand with a routine 3-1 win
over the Milwaukee Brewers. Logan Forsythe and Yasiel Puig
homered. Kenta Maeda pitched
six innings of one-run ball. Kenley
Jansen worked a perfect ninth for
his 35th save. The Dodgers, at
91-36 and up by 21 games over
Arizona in the National League
West, were essentially breaking
the sport of baseball.
And then baseball fought back.
“We were like the best team
ever for 90 percent of the season,”
Dodgers President Stan Kasten
said. “For 10 percent of the season, we were the worst team ever.”
The Dodgers will host the
Houston Astros in Game 1 of the
World Series on Tuesday night,
and this is a safe vantage point
from which to view the bumps of
late August and early September.
For a pennant-winning team, the
stretch that followed that humdrum win over the Brewers was
unprecedented: The Dodgers lost
the next two to Milwaukee, went
to Arizona and got swept, managed a single win behind Clayton
Kershaw in San Diego — and then
dropped 11 straight.
On Aug. 25, they were on pace
to win 116 games. By Sept. 11,
when the lowly Giants won the
first game of a series in San Francisco, that pace was down near
103, the lead in the NL West
shriveled to nine games. The bulletproof Dodgers were hemorrhaging.
“I think a little self-doubt
creeps in,” General Manager Farhan Zaidi said.
For so much of the summer, the
Dodgers had reinvented ways to
use their endless resources, their
deep and talented system and the
entirety of the 40-man roster —
any 25 of whom can be active
major leaguers at one time — to
maximize output. The team’s record was a tribute to the players —
led by the incomparable Kershaw
on the mound and discardedspare-part-turned-all-star Justin
Turner in the lineup. But it was
also part of the design of Zaidi
and his immediate boss, Andrew
Friedman, the team’s president of
baseball operations. That pair
took over the Dodgers before the
2015 season, when former general
manager Ned Colletti — a more
traditional GM from a more traditional time — was bumped to the
side to make room for a new way
of thinking.
When Friedman arrived from
Tampa Bay, where he built the
Rays into a club with a reputation
of being among the most progressive in the game, he found a roster
that was in danger of becoming
the Philadelphia Phillies circa
2012 — aging, inflexible and expensive. He hired Zaidi away from
Oakland, and the two tapped into
the talent already in the system
and filled out the fringes. They
not only built a team that was
designed to be the best in the
game in 2017. They built a team
that seemed impervious to losing
16 times in 17 games.
JAMIE SQUIRE/GETTY IMAGES
Manager Dave Roberts stayed steady as his Dodgers lost 16 of 17 games in a trying late-season stretch.
“We don’t ever think of it as, ‘Is
this sustainable?’ ” Friedman
said. “ ‘Are we going to play at this
clip, which would equal this many
wins?’ We’re so focused on the
day-to-day.”
But with a club of this pedigree
and this payroll — roughly
$265 million, highest in the sport
— the day-to-day is supposed to
bring wins. When the Dodgers
lost the final two against the
Brewers, they headed to Phoenix,
ostensibly to put away the Diamondbacks. There, the Dodgers
found an Arizona team that
trailed by 18 games but had won
six of seven. The Diamondbacks
had their best two pitchers —
Robbie Ray and Zack Greinke —
going in the last two games. The
Dodgers started Rich Hill, HyunJin Ryu and Maeda.
Los Angeles’ front office was
well aware that the likely wildcard matchup in the National
League would be Arizona against
Colorado. So the Dodgers actively
steered away from pitching Kershaw and newly acquired Yu
Darvish against the Diamondbacks, either for that series in
Phoenix or for three more matchups with Arizona the following
week at Dodger Stadium, when
Hill, Ryu and Maeda repeated as
starters.
“That was by design,” Kasten
said.
The results, however, were not.
Arizona swept the three games in
Phoenix. On a Friday night in San
Diego, Kershaw came off the disabled list to pitch for the first time
in five weeks — and shut out the
Padres over six innings, enough
for Los Angeles to eke out a 1-0
win. And then the Padres swept a
Saturday doubleheader and took
the Sunday series finale. The unbeatable Dodgers had lost eight of
nine.
“It’s probably humbling for us,
realizing we’re not unstoppable,”
Kershaw said. “We’re not unbeatable, which was probably a good
thing for us [to learn].”
But how to know it at the time?
“I think there’s a lot of rationalization that was going on,” Friedman said, “at least the way my
mind works.”
But there was also examination
and introspection. The leading
voice was Dave Roberts, the manager, who by the definition of his
job has to meet with the media
twice each day. Roberts’s resting
face is a near-grin. Like it or not,
he thought each new day would
bring a win.
“It would’ve been really easy
for him at some point along the
way to crack, and he didn’t at all,”
Friedman said. “And it wasn’t just
his public persona, either. It was
also the way he handled things in
the clubhouse. I think it rubbed
off on our players. Their level of
preparation, their focus, really
didn’t change.”
“There wasn’t any finger-pointing,” Roberts said. “We still banded together.”
Still, there were reasons the
losses piled up. During the doubleheader in San Diego, relievers
Wilmer Font, Josh Ravin and Pedro Baez combined to allow five
runs in a 6-5 loss. In the series
opener against the Diamondbacks at home, Baez retired none
of the four batters he faced and
allowed two homers in a 13-0
rout. The following night, Roberts used Jansen in the ninth to
hold a tie, but Baez gave up two
runs in the 10th in a 3-1 loss. And
in the series finale, reliever Luis
Avilan allowed two runs in the
seventh, enough to hand the Diamondbacks another 3-1 win.
“Our offense went into a little
bit of a funk. . . . We believe very
strongly in our offensive players,
so that didn’t really concern me,”
Friedman said. “For a chunk of
that time, our starters were struggling, which didn’t really concern
us. We had a lot of confidence our
starters would get through it.
“Once our bullpen started faltering, that was the one area that I
think gave us the most concern,
only because they are tightropewalkers for a living. And as their
confidence is affected . . . our fear
was the hangover, potentially,
from that.”
But the hangover can’t come
when you’re still in a drunken
stupor. As the Diamondbacks left
town, the Rockies arrived. At
some point during that homestand, Friedman, Zaidi, Roberts
and others sat around after a
game — a loss, of course, because
by this point they were all losses
— and discussed what was going
on. Their conclusion: This will be
really good for this team.
“And then it ended up lasting
another seven or eight days,”
Friedman said, “which is not as
fun.”
The Rockies’ four-game sweep
came by an aggregate score of
28-11. The last of those games gave
the Dodgers 10 straight losses.
Drives home from the ballpark
became existential crises — not
because the Dodgers were going
to miss the playoffs, but because
even lousy teams don’t lose 10 in a
row, let alone great ones.
“I’m just saying, ‘It’s going to
end tomorrow, because it has to,’ ”
Kasten said. “I was just kind of
incredulous. I don’t know what’s
going on, but it can’t be.”
In an odd way, the way the
Dodgers approached the losing
streak had to be the same way
they approached a stretch in
which they went 43-7 — the best
50-game spurt in baseball since
1912.
“We said it a lot: When we were
going good, we had a short memory,” Zaidi said. “We didn’t rely on
how well we’d been playing. We
showed up at the park every day.
And when we were going badly,
there was a genuine feeling every
day it was going to turn for us.”
At some point, it had to turn.
The Dodgers flew to San Francisco and lost that opener to the
Giants. And then, on Sept. 12, they
sent Kershaw to the mound. They
jumped on Giants starter Johnny
Cueto for four runs in the fourth.
They got effective relief work
from Brandon Morrow and Jansen, whom Roberts deployed for a
four-out save. They won. Repeat:
The Dodgers won!
That was the first of four in a
row. That helped them finish the
season 12-6 — much more like a
club with designs on a World
Series championship. They won
104 games. Did losing 16 of 17
actually help them? Who knows?
With their first World Series since
1988 just ahead, the Dodgers —
downright feeble just more than a
month ago — are fearsome again,
7-1 in the postseason.
“It just didn’t have the effect on
our clubhouse that I think people
would have feared if you would
have said, ‘This is what’s going to
play out,’ ” Friedman said. “I think
most people would assume that
there’s going to be a lot of residual
bad effects from that. There really
weren’t, which is really a testament to our group.”

Trio of veterans have added a championship flair to the Astros’ talented mix
ASTROS FROM D1
leaving with [the Yankees] up 3-2.’
I know it’s going through their
heads. I just don’t want people to
feel down. If you get caught up in
the hype and the crowd, it could
get into your head.”
By Saturday night, when the
Astros were spraying champagne
at the end of their Game 7 victory
at Minute Maid Park — the one
that vaulted them past the Yankees and into a World Series
matchup with the Los Angeles
Dodgers, beginning Tuesday at
Dodger Stadium — the Astros
could count themselves as fortunate in many ways.
They were fortunate to have
won 101 games and the AL West
title during the regular season, a
distinction that earned them
home-field advantage over the
wild-card Yankees and allowed
them to play Games 6 and 7 at
home — finishing off a series in
which the home team won all
seven games. (The Dodgers, with
104 wins, have home-field advantage in the World Series.)
They were fortunate for Alex
Bregman’s daring threaded-needle of a throw home in the fifth
inning to nail New York’s Greg
Bird with what would have been
the tying run. They were fortunate for Charlie Morton’s reinvention as a power right-hander with
electrifying stuff, which manifested itself with five scoreless innings in Game 7, and for Lance
McCullers’s demonic curveball,
which he threw an unheard-of 24
straight times to finish off a dazzling, four-inning save.
But mostly, as they celebrated
in a haze of cigar smoke and
champagne fumes deep into Saturday night and Sunday morning,
they sounded fortunate for their
veteran leaders, as well as for the
front office that understood the
value of such and made the necessary moves over the previous 12
months to acquire Beltran, McCann and ace Justin Verlander.
“Brian McCann is the untold,
absolute hero of this team this
year,” McCullers, 24, said, unprompted, of his catcher, echoing
the sentiments of many of the
Astros pitchers. “We’d be nowhere near this position without
Brian McCann. He doesn’t get a
lot of publicity, but this guy makes
a difference in the locker room,
and he makes people better. He
deserves so much credit.”
If a baseball team is a complex
organism, with functioning organ systems that work together to
keep lifeblood flowing through its
veins, the Astros’ heart is clearly
its 20-something core, the products of the franchise’s vaunted
player-development system —
McCullers, Bregman, second
baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop
Carlos Correa, center fielder
George Springer and others.
The Astros’ brain, of course, is a
front office and field staff that
have taken the analytics wave
sweeping through the game to an
entirely different level, applying
its concepts with an aggressiveness and breadth unmatched in
the game — as seen most vividly
with the atypical choice of McCullers, their Game 4 starter, for a
12-out save, rather than deploying a parade of relievers, largely
because of McCullers’s superb
curveball and the Yankees’ susceptibility to it.
THOMAS SHEA/USA TODAY SPORTS
“Brian McCann is the untold, absolute hero of this team,” Lance
McCullers said of Houston’s catcher, acquired over the winter.
“I’ve got to hand it to our
analytics people,” Astros pitching
coach Brent Strom told Fox
Sports’s Ken Rosenthal after
Game 7. “They said, ‘Listen, this is
where we’re making our mistakes. We need to throw as many
curveballs as possible. [The Yankees are] a good fastball-hitting
team.”
But the Astros’ soul is the three
veterans added in November 2016
(McCann), December 2016 (Beltran) and August 2017 (Verlander) by a front office and ownership — having built the roster the
hard way, from the bare ground
up, with three straight seasons of
106-plus losses from 2011 to 2013
— that recognized the core pieces
were now in place to win a championship, but the whole thing still
lacked the final ingredient.
It is the ultimate unquantifi-
able quality — call it veteran
presence, leadership or experience. But for all their analytical
bent, the Astros recognized they
needed it. And a franchise long
known for hoarding its prospects
to the point of derision suddenly
went into buy-mode and used
that stockpile as currency.
“They’ve been through it,” General Manager Jeff Luhnow said of
his veteran additions. “They’ve
been on winning and losing
teams in the postseason. To have
veterans with those résumés to
give advice was huge.”
McCann, 33, was the first to
arrive, via trade from the Yankees,
after that team recognized Gary
Sanchez had arrived and their
catcher position would be his for
the next six years at least. One
quirk of McCann’s trade to Houston 11 months ago was that the
Yankees agreed to pay roughly a
third of his $17 million salary with
the Astros this year — a reality
that made McCann’s two-run
double in the fifth inning of Game
7 doubly hard for the Yankees to
swallow.
“With Gary coming up and
doing what he did [in New York], I
mean, there’s no argument. . . .
What he’s been able to do his first
year and a half in the big leagues
has been remarkable,” McCann
said last week of his departure
from New York. “I’m very thankful this all worked out the way it
did and it worked out for both
sides. Gary’s one of the better
catchers in baseball, I got a
chance to come here. So I think it
worked out.”
Beltran was next, signing as a
free agent a little more than 10
months ago. Though at age 40 he
is a shell of what he once was — a
full-time designated hitter now,
he hasn’t spent a single inning in
the field in more than two
months, and he is hitting just .176
this postseason — he is an indispensable pillar of the Astros’
clubhouse, in effect a coach with
a locker in the players’ room. His
influence is felt in the Astros’
devotion to video study, in the
melting-pot dynamic that brings
together English- and Spanishspeaking teammates in a way not
typically seen in baseball — and
in the occasional clubhouse
speech when the situation is
most dire.
“He’s the best teammate I’ve
ever had, man,” outfielder Cameron Maybin said. “He has so much
knowledge and all he wants to do
is share it with you.”
The final piece, Verlander, took
the Astros up to the very edge of
the midnight Aug. 31 deadline for
making playoff-eligible additions, as the Astros and Detroit
Tigers had to agree on the prospects and money changing hands,
Verlander had to be convinced to
waive his full no-trade privileges
and Major League Baseball had to
approve the complex deal — all of
which happened with moments
to spare before the deadline.
Verlander, 34, who won both
the Cy Young and MVP awards as
a Tiger in 2011, would pitch brilliantly for the Astros in five lowstress starts down the stretch, as
the team coasted into the playoffs
by winning the West by 21 games.
But in the postseason, he has been
almost untouchable, going 4-0
with a 1.46 ERA and earning MVP
honors in the ALCS with 16 remarkable innings in which he
allowed 10 hits, two walks and
one run while striking out 21.
“I thought he would give us
some good starts in September
and some quality starts in the
playoffs,” Luhnow said. “But what
he’s done has been incredible.
And he’s lifted everybody around
him, too. I think he makes all of
our pitching staff better. He
makes our catchers better. He’s
just incredible.”
The Astros move on to the
World Series now, where a rested
Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers’
unparalleled ace, awaits them in
Game 1. It will be a daunting
assignment and a daunting atmosphere, but after surviving
what they did against the Yankees
in the ALCS, the Astros — heart,
mind and soul — are prepared
and ready for anything.

A Buck who’s anything and everything
With limitless potential and versatility, Milwaukee’s Antetokounmpo looks ready to take over the NBA
BY
T IM B ONTEMPS
milwaukee — Giannis Antetok-
ounmpo stood on the court inside
the Bucks’ sparkling new downtown practice facility Thursday
afternoon, discussing his performance against the Boston
Celtics the night before in Milwaukee’s season opener.
Antetokounmpo had a remarkable game — 37 points on 13-for22 shooting from the field and
11 for 13 from the foul line to go
with 13 rebounds, three assists
and three steals in 37 minutes in a
108-100 victory. But to hear him
tell it, he still can improve.
“Definitely things are slowing
down for me,” Antetokounmpo
said. “Day by day and game by
game, the game becomes easier,
and it gets a lot slower. From Day 1
[of my rookie year], from Year 1 to
Year 5, the game is a lot different.
“I couldn’t imagine, when I was
a rookie, that I would be able to
see the game the way I am seeing
the game now. I think I can get a
lot better.”
Told that that is a scary thought
for the rest of the NBA, Antetokounmpo said, “I know. And I
think I can play a lot smarter, too.
That was a good game [against
Boston], but I don’t think I played
as smart as I think I am in that
game.
“There’s a lot of things to improve on, and it’s kind of scary
that I’m thinking about that. Because I could easily be saying, ‘Oh,
we won. I had 37,’ and then just sit
on my butt and be happy about it.
But there’s a lot of things I can do
better, and that’s kind of scary.”
It’s downright terrifying for the
rest of the NBA, which already is
struggling to contain the 22-yearold superstar’s limitless potential. In fact, entering his fifth
season, Antetokounmpo may be
ready to get himself in the MVP
conversation — and even make a
case for inclusion in best-playerin-the-world debates.
“I think it’s fair,” Bucks Coach
Jason Kidd said as his team prepared to face the Cavaliers on
Friday night in Milwaukee’s home
opener. “And I think it’s realistic.”
MADDIE MEYER/GETTY IMAGES
Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated Boston last week, finishing with 37 points and 13 rebounds.
“I couldn’t
imagine, when I
was a rookie, that
I would be able to
see the game the
way I am seeing
the game now. I
think I can get a
lot better.”
Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis
Antetokounmpo
That’s a lot to put on anyone
who turns 23 in December — even
someone as ridiculously gifted as
Antetokounmpo, who sports a
combination of length, athleticism and skill that you usually
find only in video games. But
those are goals that Antetokounmpo targeted, beginning with
conversations with Kidd and assistant coach Sean Sweeney after
the Bucks lost a hard-fought firstround series to the Toronto Raptors.
“I asked them, ‘What’s the next
step?’ ” Antetokounmpo said.
“[They said], ‘You’ve got to get to
that MVP level. You have to be the
MVP of this team and try to lead it
to 50 wins.’ I have been thinking
about that for the whole summer,
basically.”
To that end, he made changes
in his life. He cut out fast food,
junk food and candy (though he
still has healthy smoothies, the
treat he grew to love upon arriving in the NBA).
“I can’t do that no more,” Antetokounmpo said of eating poorly.
“It gets to a point where your
body can’t take it. Last year was a
long season, and it was the first
season I went through playing a
lot of minutes, so I had to do
something to feel better, and
changing my diet helped me feel a
lot better.”
The result: A player who was a
string bean of a teenager when he
arrived from Greece in 2013 is
now towering and muscular, capable of throwing people around
as few wing players can (other
than LeBron James). That has
allowed Antetokounmpo to become a dominant player, even
though his jump shot remains
suspect.
That’s the only thing about his
game that is questionable, however. Antetokounmpo essentially
fills a new position all his own: a
point-center, capable of bringing
the ball up the court and operating as a point guard offensively
while playing every position at
the other end of the court. Again,
only James can match his positional flexibility — and that was
before Antetokounmpo made a
subtle but important improvement to his screening ability,
which opens up a host of new
offensive options for Milwaukee.
It’s just another example of
how Antetokounmpo’s evolution
and wide-ranging abilities all
lead back to one archetype:
James, the world’s undisputed
best player. Bucks guard Matthew
Dellavedova, who played alongside James in Cleveland before
joining Milwaukee last year,
doesn’t like to compare Antetokounmpo with James, but he certainly sees the parallels.
“They’re both so unique,” Dellavedova said. “I don’t really compare him to LeBron, because he’s
his own special player. He does
things on the court pretty much
every game that I haven’t seen
before, but where he is obviously
similar is his desire to be the best
and the work he puts in.
“I got to play with the finished
product [as a] 10-, 12-year veteran, and Giannis is in his fifth
year now. But if he keeps putting
in the work like I know he will
and he does every day, he really
could be anything.”
Antetokounmpo really could
be anything, but he isn’t ready to
say he’s as good as James. Asked
whether he considers players
such as James to be his equals
rather than idols, his eyes grow as
large as his gargantuan hands.
“Oh, no,” Antetokounmpo said.
“I still have that feeling like, ‘Oh,
there’s LeBron.’
“Because, at the end of the day,
I grew up watching those people.
When Kobe [Bryant] came to the
league, I was 2 years old. So that
feeling is never going to change.
When LeBron came into the
league, I was 9 years old. So I grew
up watching him play.
“So that feeling is never going
to change. I just try to stay
grounded. I don’t feel like I’m an
equal with them. I just have to
keep working hard, and one day I
can be in the same league.”
Antetokounmpo may not want
to let himself believe it, but that
day already has arrived.

Wizards focusing on three and ‘D’ for their upcoming trip west
Washington is 2-0,
but that doesn’t mean
this is a perfect start
BY
C ANDACE B UCKNER
Look around the NBA, and you
will notice that several of the
so-called super teams — namely,
the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden
State Warriors and Oklahoma
City Thunder — already have
dropped a game or two. Not the
Washington Wizards.
As Washington hits its first
extended road trip, the team sits
atop the Eastern Conference with
a 2-0 record. While it’s a small
sample size, it’s also difficult to
ignore the frayed edges around
those two wins.
Washington has spent much of
the past calendar year harping
about its lackluster team defense,
as well as pledging to shoot more
three-pointers. In the first two
games, nothing changed.
Against the Philadelphia 76ers
and Detroit Pistons, the Wizards
produced a defensive rating of
106.0, which ranks 20th in the
NBA.
“Still figuring it out,” said
Coach Scott Brooks, who has used
a variant of this phrase since
coming to Washington last season. “We definitely have to keep
improving. Our offense is clicking
. . . but defensively we’re spotty, at
best. We do it at a high level for a
quarter, and then we give up a
30-plus point quarter. Trying to
keep that down. We have to get
better. I’m going to continue to
talk about it until they get tired of
hearing it.”
For quarters, the Wizards show
they can play solid defense, but
those maddening glimpses only
create more questions. If the
Wizards can hold Detroit to
16 points in the third quarter
after allowing a 65 in the first
half, then why can’t they defend

like that all the time?
“We know that we aren’t going
to play perfect, but at the same
time, we need to come out with a
defensive mind-set,” Bradley Beal
said. “We can’t go and get down
10, 11 points, you know, the way
we did and have to fight and claw
back. That’s something that we
did all last year and something
that we need to try and avoid this
season as much as we can. It’s
best for us to get out to a better
defensive start each and every
game. It is a good sign that we are
able to turn it around, and Coach
jumps on our butt a little bit to get
after it on defense.”
Besides the befuddling defense, an unexplained hesitancy
has afflicted a roster with plenty
of shooters. Only 15.3 percent of
the Wizards’ points have come
from beyond the three-point arc.
This seems peculiar considering
Washington’s 117.5 points per
game outrank the defending
champion Warriors and Houston
Rockets, the highest-scoring
teams from last season.
The Wizards certainly can
score but have done so without
relying on threes. Overall, the
team has averaged just 19.5 attempts per game, the second
lowest in the league.
“Flow of the game. We like to
shoot threes; I know I do,” reserve
forward Mike Scott said. Then
Scott added with a sheepish grin:
“I guess that’s the right answer.
. . . I mean, Jodie [Meeks] hit a
three — I think. ”
During Wednesday’s home
game against the 76ers, Washington attempted just eight threepointers in the first half — despite
Washington starting a floorstretching big in Jason Smith,
then playing small after Smith
left the game with a right shoulder injury. By Friday night, when
Brooks had made it known that
he wanted more three-point attempts, Washington passed up
deep looks for worse shots and
had just five three-point attempts
in the first half.
“They don’t listen much, do
they?” Brooks quipped following
the 115-111 win over Detroit. “We
have to shoot threes. They’re wide
open. We got playmakers that
create a lot of havoc. When
they’re on time and on target,
you’ve got to shoot.”
The second-unit playmaker,
point guard Tim Frazier, views
the conservative shooting as a
correctable problem that will
smooth out with time. Frazier,
Scott and Meeks are in their first
season with the team. With center Ian Mahinmi, who appeared
in just 31 games last year, the
second unit looks as new as it was
last season. Frazier believes teammates will need more than two
games to reach a comfort level.
“Especially in our unit, we’re a
little hesitant,” Frazier said. “We
haven’t played together, played
against other teams together. I
think that’s a lot of it. I think a lot
of guys, we’re all trying to get
everybody involved, and I think
sometimes eventually when
games go by we’ll find out what
our roles are in that second unit.”
Still, Frazier looks at the team’s
record and finds little to nitpick.
“We have three-point shooters.
When they’re open they can
knock it down, but at the end of
the day, we got two wins,” Frazier
said. “So I’m pretty happy about
that.”

For Bishop, better late than never — and a Marine Corps Marathon crown
BY
D ILLON M ULLAN
Sarah Bishop was not registered for the 42nd Marine Corps
Marathon when she visited its
website nine days ago. After finding a phone number, listening to
menu options and pressing five
for customer service, she waited
on hold. When business manager
Jim Jackson answered the
phone, Bishop pleaded her case.
“I was desperate, but I was
like, ‘I’m going to do this.’ I said,
‘Hi, I got fourth in the Marine
Corps Marathon last year, and I
really, really want to register,’ ”
Bishop said. “He said, ‘Okay,
what’s your email address?’ I was
so thrilled. I owe him a lot for
letting me register last minute.”
On Sunday morning, Bishop
paid Jackson back by finishing
first among all female runners in
2 hours 45 minutes 6 seconds.
Arlington’s Desta Beriso Morkama was the fastest male runner
by more than two minutes with a
time of 2:25:14.
Bishop was aiming to qualify
for the Olympic marathon trials
but missed that time by six seconds. The 35-year-old Fairfax native wrote the splits she needed
to keep pace with the qualifying
time on her left hand in black
JONATHAN NEWTON/THE WASHINGTON POST
Fairfax’s Sarah Bishop, above, won the women’s race, while Desta Beriso Morkama was the top man.
marker Sunday. Then she did the
same for her four kids.
“I had written on my hand
where I needed to be at to qualify
for the trials, and they all saw
that and wanted to write on their
own hands,” Bishop said. “So I
wrote numbers on their hands
for them, and they went around
to their friends saying, ‘This is for
mommy’s race.’ ”
Bishop has four children. Because of her late registration, her
husband was not able to stay in
town for the race, so her kids
were home with a babysitter during the event. Even though they
weren’t there to offer in-person
support, Bishop credits her
young children for making her a
better runner.
“Running is easy. Raising kids
is what’s hard. Going on my run, I
can clear my head; that’s my
time. Otherwise, I haven’t got a
second to myself. I have a 7-, 5and 4-year-old twins,” said Bishop, who served in the Air Force
for four years and now works full
time as a director of business
development for a construction
company. “I hear people say all
the time that woman can’t have it
all, but I think that’s a bad mentality. Why not? If men can go
and train for marathons and
work full time, why can’t women? We need to change that narrative.”
While Bishop says she knew
she was going to win at the
11-mile mark, the men’s race was
much tighter. Arlington native
Kieran O’Connor moved into
first place in the opening
200 meters. For the next 23 miles,
the 30-year-old periodically
looked over his shoulder for a
chaser but could not see anyone.
But as O’Connor looped
around a public square in Crystal
City, he passed Morkama going
in the opposite direction, and the
two locked eyes. About a mile
later, around the 24.5-mile mark,
Morkama took over the lead and
powered his way to victory.
“I had a little bit of optimism,
but shortly after we saw each
other I almost passed out a little
bit. Then I just went into survival
mode and just wanted to finish,”
O’Connor said. Getting passed “is
definitely deflating, but I knew
he was coming, and he was looking strong, so the acceptance
comes pretty quickly.”
The win was extra special for
Morkama after a second-place
finish last year.
“When I catch him, my feeling
was, you know, I’m sorry, but I
was excited to finish,” Morkama
said. “Last year I didn’t work
hard. This year I worked hard. I
kept going in training that was
very difficult. That’s why I won.”
Wesley Turner, 31, of Danville,
Va., finished second in the men’s
race in 2:27:34, while O’Connor
held on for third in 2:28:06.
Meghan Curran, 31, of Fort Carson, Colo., was second in the
women’s event in 2:50:23, while
Suzanne Hutchins of Gastonia,
N.C., came in third in 2:53:35.

def. Damir Dzumhur, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Antonio
Sancic, Croatia, 6-3, 7-5.
Already possessing one of the
most dynamic offenses in the
NFL, Los Angeles found a new
gear against Arizona.
QB Jared Goff ran for a touchdown and threw for another, and
K Greg Zuerlein made four field
goals as the Rams won for the first
time in three appearances in Britain, routing Arizona at Twickenham Stadium in London.
Goff completed 22 of 37 passes
for 235 yards with an interception, and Todd Gurley ran for
106 yards and a touchdown for
the NFC West-leading Rams (5-2),
who finished with 425 yards of offense — their most in a game in
more than three years.
Los Angeles has also won five
of its first seven games for the
first time since 2003, which was
the last time the Rams finished
with a winning record.
“We haven’t been in this position, but we’re definitely grateful,” Gurley said.
Arizona (3-4), meanwhile,
heads home with major questions
after QB Carson Palmer broke his
left arm in the second quarter.
Palmer will require surgery,
Coach Bruce Arians said, and is
expected to miss eight weeks.

At Kansas,
Truex wins
for fallen
crewmate
Watson, a fabricator,
dies of heart attack
BY
D AVE S KRETTA
kansas city, kan. — Martin
Truex Jr. didn’t feel a sense of
urgency to win Sunday’s race at
Kansas Speedway because of its
playoff implications, not with his
spot in the next round safe following a victory at Charlotte.
No, the sense of urgency was
much more personal.
Truex learned overnight that
one of the Furniture Row Racing
team’s crew members, road-crew
fabricator Jim Watson, 55, died of
a heart attack while in town for
the race. So, with a heavy heart,
Truex climbed into his No. 78
Toyota and overcame two early
mistakes to win a wild playoff
elimination race.
“We were racing for Jim today,”
Truex said. “He was a heck of a
guy.”
Kurt Busch finished second before a wave of playoff contenders
headed by Ryan Blaney, whose
car failed post-qualifying inspection and was sent to the back. He
quickly worked his way through
the field and finished third, easily
making it under the cut line.
Chase Elliott was fourth and
Denny Hamlin fifth to punch
their tickets to the next round.
Kevin Harvick finished eighth to
stay alive heading to Martinsville,
while Kyle Busch finished 10th
and Jimmie Johnson 11th — both
of them making the cut.
Brad Keselowski was 13th after
his win last week at Talladega
sent him to the next round.
Kyle Larson blew his engine to
spoil his chances of advancing,
and a penalty on Matt Kenseth for
having too many crew members
over the pit wall following a
wreck ended his championship
hopes.
Jamie McMurray and Ricky
Stenhouse Jr. also were eliminated from the playoffs.
“It’s a disappointing way to
finish our race and probably our
season,” said Larson, who had a
33-point buffer coming into the
race. “I guess it’s sinking in as the
seconds pass.”
Truex had dominated at Kansas for years before finally breaking through with a victory in the
spring. And while he had nothing
to lose Sunday, there was still a
sense that Truex wanted to win
his seventh race this season for
his late crew member and the rest
of the team.
“Still pretty surreal at this
point,” crew chief Cole Pearn said.
“We were all focused on what we
had to do today. That was the best
we could do for Jim. He was a true
racer in the purest form.”
Truex is the first driver in series
history with four straight wins on
1
/
1 2-mile tracks.
“I can’t say enough about all
these guys,” he said. “Just really
proud of them, and definitely we
were racing with a heavy heart.
Jim was a great worker and put a
lot of speed in these Toyotas.”
Larson was the first of the 12
remaining playoff contenders
whose chances were scuttled
when he dropped a cylinder early
in the race. He tried to limp on,
but his engine finally let go.
Still, he held a fleeting hope of
advancing when Erik Jones triggered a multicar wreck on a restart with 70 laps to go, collecting
McMurray and causing damage
to Kenseth. The former champion
thought he would be able to
continue when he reached pit
road, but seven crew members
hopped over the wall for repairs
— one more than is allowed under
NASCAR’s damaged vehicle policy.
The penalty for the violation is
an immediate parking.
Day over. Playoff hopes, too.
“I don’t know what the rules
are. It seems like we have a lot of
stuff that is changed so often, I
can’t keep up with it,” Kenseth
said. “You’re not able to race
anymore? I just don’t get it.”
Larson still had to hope Johnson, who began the day on the
bubble, would falter down the
stretch. But despite two early
spins, the seven-time champion
managed to come home 11th to
ease into the round of eight by
nine points over a driver many
pegged as a favorite, should he get
to Homestead.
“Freak things happen in every
sport,” Larson said. “I’m not
stunned, because it’s a long, 10race playoff season. Anything can
happen. But we’ve had a solid
playoffs.”

SUMMARY NOTICE OF BOND SALE
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
CONCERNING ISSUANCE OF BONDS
WASHINGTON SUBURBAN
SANITARY COMMISSION
$493,765,000* CONSOLIDATED
PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT BONDS OF 2017
A public hearing will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November
8, 2017, at the offices of Maryland Health and Higher Educational
Facilities Authority (the “Authority”), 401 East Pratt Street, Suite 1224,
Baltimore, Maryland 21202 by the Authority for the proposed issuance
of its revenue bonds, notes or other obligations (the “Bonds”), at one
time or from time to time, pursuant to the Maryland Health and Higher
Educational Facilities Authority Act.
The purpose of the public hearing is to permit any person to testify
orally or in writing concerning the issuance of the Bonds or the
location and nature of the facilities to be financed or refinanced with
the proceeds of the Bonds.
The proceeds of the Bonds will be loaned by the Authority to University of Maryland Medical System Corporation, a nonprofit Maryland
corporation (the “Institution”), and certain of its affiliates to finance
a portion of the costs of the acquisition, construction, renovation
and equipping of certain healthcare facilities, including (without
limitation) (1)(a) the construction and equipping of a new elevenstory, approximately 603,000 square-foot regional medical center,
with an attached approximately 26,820 square feet central utility
plant, to be located on property bounded by Arena Drive to the North,
Lottsford Road to the East, Harry S. Truman Boulevard to the South
and Capital Center Boulevard to the West in Largo, MD 20744, (b)
a new three-story approximately 62,000 square-foot outpatient care
center to be located on property bounded by Arena Drive to the
North, Lottsford Road to the East, Harry S. Truman Boulevard to the
South and Capital Center Boulevard to the West in Largo, MD 20744,
(c) a new two-story, approximately 75,000 square-foot freestanding
medical facility and ambulatory surgery center with two operating
suites and one procedure room to be located at 7300 Van Dusen Road,
Laurel, MD 20707 and (d) internal renovations at hospital and wellness
center facilities (collectively, the “Prince George’s Project”); and (2)
internal renovations at hospital facilities (the “UMMC Project”). The
Prince George’s Project and UMMC Project are sometimes collectively
referred to herein as the “Project.” The Project may also include
land or interests in land, buildings, structures, machinery, equipment,
furnishings or other real or personal property located on the same
sites as the Project.
In addition to the addresses above, the Prince George’s Project will be
located at 2900 Mercy Lane, Cheverly, MD 20785, 3001 Hospital Drive,
Cheverly, MD 20785, 7350 Van Dusen Road, Laurel, MD 20707, 5001
Silver Hill Road, Suitland, MD 20746, 7400 Van Dusen Road, Laurel, MD
20707 and 15001 Health Center Drive, Bowie, MD 20716. Dimensions
Health Corporation d/b/a University of Maryland Capital Region Health
will be the initial owner and operator of the Prince George’s Project.
The UMMC Project is located at 827 Linden Avenue, Baltimore, MD
21201 and 22 S. Green Street, Baltimore, MD 21201. The Institution
will be the initial owner and operator of the UMMC Project.
The maximum aggregate principal amount of the Bonds to be issued
with respect to the Project will not exceed $225,000,000. The Bonds
will be issued pursuant to a plan of financing for the Project that may
entail the financing or refinancing from time to time by the Bonds
including the financing and refinancing of the Bonds. Because of the
possible inclusion of original issue discount bonds (some of which
may be capital appreciation bonds) the total amount of Bonds payable
at maturity may exceed the initial stated principal amount of the
Bonds.
The public hearing will be held to meet the requirements imposed by
Section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code to the extent applicable to
the Bonds. For additional information or to submit written testimony,
contact the Executive Director of the Authority at the address set
forth above.

Capitals’ young defensemen growing as they go
BY
I SABELLE K HURSHUDYAN
As defenseman Christian
Djoos kicked up his leg and
triumphantly lifted his stick in
celebration of his goal, the Washington Capitals saw the stunning
flash of upside the rookie is only
starting to reveal. Earlier in Saturday night’s 4-1 loss against
Florida, Djoos misplayed a puck
behind the net, which led to a
Panthers goal, and in that moment, the Capitals also saw the
deficiencies they may have to
temporarily endure as Djoos continues to develop.
Washington’s lineup has included two rookie defensemen,
Djoos and Madison Bowey, for
the past four games now, and the
occasional errors mixed in with
the moments of brilliance are to
be expected. Both are still finding
their way in the NHL, and with
the Capitals blue line in a transition period after several key offseason departures, the team is
taking a patient approach with
both players. They’re part of
Washington’s present and future.
“The young guys have been
fine,” Coach Barry Trotz said.
“They’re going to make mistakes.
They make the same mistakes
some of the older guys are making, so just to put it on them, I
don’t think that’s accurate. I
think the young guys are coming
along just fine.”
Though the Capitals started
the season with neither player in
the lineup, they’ve both been in
since top defenseman Matt Niskanen suffered a hand injury that
will have him out until at least
Nov. 7, when he’s eligible to come
off long-term injured reserve.
The first game without Niskanen
went miserably, an 8-2 loss to the
Philadelphia Flyers that marked
the first time Washington had
allowed that many goals in regulation in 11 years. That also was
Bowey’s debut, which Trotz described as “rough.” But to
Bowey’s credit, he quickly put
that poor performance behind
him.
“I just had to remind myself
that I’m playing in the NHL, and
it’s a dream come true,” Bowey
said. “I think everyone is going to
have off nights, and obviously,
there’s a lot of mixed emotions
going on in your head for your
first game. I think I just put that
one behind me and definitely
DUANE BURLESON/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Canucks left wing Sven Baertschi, center, had goals in the first and
second periods during Vancouver’s victory Sunday night in Detroit.
BRAD MILLS/USA TODAY SPORTS
Christian Djoos’s giveaway cost the Capitals a goal Saturday, but he bounced back with one of his own.
moved on here. I’d rather have
that happen now than in the
playoffs or anything like that.”
Playing most of his shifts with
veteran Brooks Orpik, Bowey has
skated an average of 15:26 per
game. Like Djoos, he was guilty of
a costly error Saturday night,
when he got behind Panthers
forward Vincent Trocheck as Trocheck drove to the net. Bowey
hooked him in an effort to prevent him from scoring, and the
Panthers scored their second
goal of the game on the power
play that followed. But Trotz and
associate coach Todd Reirden
must not have been too unhappy
with Bowey’s overall play because he went on to log a new
high in ice time with 16:31.
Djoos showed some maturity
after his miscue Saturday night.
Less than two minutes into the
game, the Panthers applied good
forecheck pressure behind Washington’s net, and Djoos’s attempt
to advance the puck from there
resulted in it bouncing off the
cage and onto the stick of Jared
McCann, who fed Connor Brickley for the easy goal.
“Not the best start obviously
and not a good play, but I was just
going to try to play better after
that, and I think I did,” Djoos
said.
“He’s a young pro,” Trotz said.
“I mean, he’s not 19 years old.
He’s 23, and he’s played a pretty
good level in the American
[Hockey] League. . . . He knows
he can’t do anything about the
first goal, and at the same time,
he just goes forward. He gave us a
chance.”
Rather than let the mistake
affect his play for the rest of the

before shooting past him. The
Capitals’ blue line has produced
two goals this season, and both
have come from Djoos.
“I think most guys, once they
make that first move, just put
their head down and rip it,”
Smith-Pelly said. “It showed good
poise and patience to kind of
hold onto it and wait.”

detroit — Sven Baertschi
scored twice, and the Vancouver
Canucks used a dominant second
period to pull away for a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on
Sunday night.
Vancouver scored three times
in the second, outshooting the
Red Wings 18-6 in the period.
Baertschi, Derek Dorsett and Jake
Virtanen scored in the second for
the Canucks, who are 3-1 so far on
a five-game trip.
Detroit has lost four in a row.
Anthony Mantha scored the only
goal for the Red Wings, tying the
score at 1 late in the first.
Vancouver opened the scoring
when Bo Horvat’s shot was deflected and the puck trickled to
Baertschi in front of the net. He
stickhandled around goalie Jim-
my Howard and backhanded the
puck in.
Mantha’s equalizer came on a
wrist shot from the top of the left
circle.
Dorsett gave Vancouver the
lead back with his fifth goal in the
past five games. Horvat found him
in front of the net with a pass, and
Dorsett’s shot bounced in the air
off Howard before coming down
behind him and going in the goal.
Baertschi’s second goal came
on a wrist shot from the top of the
slot, and then the Canucks added
another in the final minute of the
period. Detroit’s Mike Green was
unable to control the puck entering the Vancouver zone and ended
up knocking it backward to Daniel Sedin, who went the other way
on a two-on-one. Sedin passed to
Virtanen, whose initial shot was
stopped before he put away the
rebound.
Sedin’s assist on that goal
brought his career point total to
990.
