Republicans
target Bannon
GROUP IS ALIGNED WITH MCCONNELL
Effort to counter anti-establishment push in 2018
BY D AVID W EIGEL,
M ICHAEL S CHERER
AND R OBERT C OSTA
Allies of Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell declared open
warfare on Wednesday against
Stephen K. Bannon, the former
White House chief strategist and
leader of an insurrection aimed at
defeating mainstream Republican candidates in next year’s midterm elections.
More than a year ahead of the
2018 congressional contests, a
super PAC aligned with McConnell (R-Ky.) revealed plans to attack Bannon personally as it
works to protect GOP incumbents
facing uphill primary fights. The
effort reflects the growing con-
cern of Republican lawmakers
over the rise of anti-establishment
forces and comes amid escalating
frustration
over
President
Trump’s conduct, which has
prompted a handful of lawmakers
to publicly criticize the president.
Yet the retaliatory crusade does
not aim to target Trump, whose
popularity remains high among
Republican voters. Instead, the
McConnell-allied Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) will highlight
Bannon’s hard-line populism and
attempt to link him to white nationalism to discredit him and the

SANDY HUFFAKER FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
People live on the streets in the East Village area of San Diego, a city where the homeless are susceptible to a hepatitis A outbreak.

In California, a developing-world virus had several missing
Lack of affordable housing exacerbates growing homelessness — and the spread of hepatitis A
BY
S COTT W ILSON
san diego — California’s exorbitant housing costs are driving a
public-health crisis here, as a
developing-world disease is racing through homeless encampments in cities along the coast.
The hepatitis A outbreak in
Los Angeles, Santa Cruz and San
Diego, long considered a model
of savvy urban redevelopment, is
the extreme result of a booming
state economy, now driving up
home prices after years of gov-
ernment decisions that made
low-cost housing more difficult
to build.
Unlike in some other large U.S.
cities, the homeless population
in San Diego has been rising
sharply, outstripping the local
government’s ability to manage
its scope. State lawmakers passed
more than a dozen measures in
the recent legislative session to
address the state’s lack of affordable housing, none of which will
help resolve the crisis in the short
term.
Nowhere is the need more urgent than in this prospering city,
where the number of people living on the streets rose 14 percent
in the past year, tracing a hepatitis A outbreak that thrives in
unsanitary conditions. Health officials believe an epidemic that
has infected more than 500 people statewide since March began
in San Diego County, where 19
people have died as a result of the
disease, nearly all of them homeless.
Extremely rare in the United
States, and rarely fatal when it
does occur, hepatitis A attacks
the liver and causes symptoms
such as fever, nausea and jaundice. It is spread when a person
ingests food or water tainted by
the feces of someone who is infected — that is, it is a virus that
stalks the unclean places where
the poor are often consigned to
live. California Gov. Jerry Brown
(D) declared a state of emergency
as the result of the outbreak this
month.

Out: Two honorable men the GOP should’ve been proud of. In: Don’t ask.
Out: Jeff Flake.
In: Roy Moore.
This week
brought a
clarifying
moment in the
Dana
sad denouement
Milbank
of the once-proud
WASHINGTON GOP into an organ
of grievance and
SKETCH
intolerance. Flake,
a Republican from
Arizona, said he was retiring
from the Senate. This honorable
man and faithful conservative
followed another good man, Sen.
Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), in
concluding that there is no place
for their service in Trump’s
America.
Yet even as Flake bowed out
Tuesday, Senate Republicans
were tightening the party’s
inevitable embrace of the new:
Ten Commandments judge Roy
Moore, who after his GOP
primary win is very likely to be
the next senator from Alabama.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), a longtime
leader in his party’s race to the
bottom, issued a statement
Tuesday endorsing Moore. Two
other senators reportedly will
hold a fundraiser for Moore, and
GOP leadership, with its silence,
is tacitly accepting that Moore is
its man.
The torch was passed. This is
no longer the GOP of Flake, who
carried the flame for Barry
Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.
It’s not even Donald Trump’s; he
was just using it. The GOP is now
the party of Roy Moore.
In the spirit of those “in and
out” features my newspaper
colleagues do at year’s end, lets
look at what’s “out” in the GOP —
the sentiments voiced by Flake in
his moving speech Tuesday —
and what’s “in”— some of the
memorable words of Moore.
Out: “I rise today with no
small measure of regret, regret
because of the state of our
disunion, regret because of the
disrepair and destructiveness of
our politics, regret because of the
indecency of our discourse.”
In: “Homosexual behavior is a
ground for divorce, an act of
sexual misconduct punishable as
a crime in Alabama, a crime
against nature, an inherent evil,
and an act so heinous that it
defies one’s ability to describe
it…. [T]he homosexual conduct
of a parent — conduct involving a
sexual relationship between two
persons of the same gender —
creates a strong presumption of
unfitness that alone is sufficient
justification for denying that
parent custody.”
Out: “Reckless, outrageous
and undignified behavior has
become excused and
countenanced as telling it like it
is when it is actually just reckless,
outrageous and undignified. And
when such behavior emanates
from the top of our government,
it is something else. It is
dangerous to a democracy.”
In: “In 1943, we would never
have allowed a member of
Congress to take their oath on
‘Mein Kampf.’ . . . Congress has
the authority and should act to
prohibit Ellison [Rep. Keith
Ellison (D-Minn.), the first
Muslim member of Congress]
from taking the congressional
oath today!”
Out: “When a leader correctly
identifies real hurt and
insecurity in our country and
instead of addressing it, goes
looking for somebody to blame,
there is perhaps nothing more
devastating to a pluralistic
society.”
In: Moore: “Do you know that
bestiality, the relationship
between man and beast, is
prohibited in every state?”
Interviewer [who had been
asking about gay rights]: “Did I
ask you about having sex with a
cow? Or a dog?”
Moore: “No, you didn’t, but it’s
the same thing.”
Out: “American leadership
looks to the world and just as
Lincoln did sees the family of
man. Humanity is not a zero-sum
game.”
In: Interviewer: “[Ronald
Reagan] said that Russia was the
focus of evil in the modern
world.”
Moore: “You could say that
very well about America, couldn’t
you?”
Interviewer: “Do you think?”
Moore: “Well, we promote a lot
of bad things, you know.”
Interviewer: “Like?”
Moore: “Same-sex marriage.”
Interviewer: “That’s the very
argument Vladimir Putin
makes.”
Moore: “Well, then, maybe
Putin is right. Maybe he’s more
akin to me than I know.”
Out: “The impulse to
scapegoat and belittle threatens
to turn us into a fearful,
backward-looking people. In the
case of the Republican Party,
those things also threaten to turn
us into a fearful, backwardlooking minority party.”
In: “In 1857, the United States
Supreme Court [in Dred Scott]
did rule that black people were
property. . . . But this [gaymarriage] ruling in Obergefell is
even worse in a sense.”
In: “Now we have blacks and
whites fighting, reds and yellows
fighting, Democrats and
Republicans fighting, men and
women fighting.”
In: “My personal belief is that
he [President Barack Obama]
wasn’t” born in the United States.
In: “There is no such thing as
evolution.”
In: “You wonder why we’re
having shootings and killings
here in 2017? Because we’ve
asked for it. . . . We’ve taken
prayer out of school.”
In: “False religions like Islam
who teach that you must worship
this way are completely opposite
with what our First Amendment
stands for.”
In: “There are communities
under sharia law right now in our
country. . . . Well, there’s sharia
law, as I understand it, in Illinois,
Indiana — up there. I don’t
know.”
In: “America the Beautiful, or
so you used to be,
Land of the Pilgrims’ pride,
I’m glad they’re not here to see,
Babies piled in dumpsters,
abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty, your
house is on the sand.”
As Flake said on the Senate
floor: Heaven help us.

a baby, her lawyers say, was not
part of her plans.

OYSTER PERPETUAL
EXPLORER II
Trump administration blocked
her, prompting a lawsuit in federal court.
Early Wednesday, after an appeals court ruling in her favor, the
teenager identified as Jane Doe in
court papers left a federally funded Texas shelter, where she had
been kept under close watch, and
terminated her pregnancy.
“I’m not ready to be a parent,”
she said in a statement provided
by her lawyers. “I made my decision, and that is between me and
God. Through all of this, I have
never changed my mind.”
The abortion ended the girl’s
individual court challenge in a
case that drew widespread attention and evoked the incendiary
issues of abortion rights and illegal
immigration. But the broader legal
battle over whether the federal
government may continue to dissuade, and even block, undocumented teens in its custody from
having abortions is still pending in
U.S. District Court in Washington.
The Trump administration had
no comment on the case Wednesday, even as a leading Republican
in Texas criticized the Justice Department’s failure to appeal the
teen’s case to the Supreme Court
in time to halt her abortion.
The Trump administration said
in court that it has a new policy of
refusing to “facilitate” abortions
for unaccompanied minors taken
into federal custody after crossing
the border illegally.
The American Civil Liberties
Union, which represented the
teen, said that policy violates the
minors’ constitutional right to an
abortion in the United States.
Hundreds of pregnant undocumented immigrants have been in
federal custody in recent years,
according to court filings.
“Justice prevailed today for
Jane Doe. But make no mistake
about it, the administration’s efforts to interfere in women’s decisions won’t stop with Jane,” said
Brigitte Amiri, the ACLU attorney
who argued the case in court.
The abortion on Wednesday
followed a roller-coaster legal battle that moved swiftly through the
courts, with judges issuing contradictory rulings.
On Tuesday, the full U.S. Court
of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit
took the unusual step of reversing
a three-judge panel of the same
court without first holding oral
argument.
The panel’s decision, issued Friday, would have postponed the
abortion.
Instead, the D.C. Circuit’s 6to-3 ruling sent the case back to
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, who hours later reissued an
earlier order requiring the government to let the teen have the
abortion “promptly and without
delay.”
Her guardians rushed to arrange transportation to the nearest abortion provider. The Justice
Department mulled whether to
ask the Supreme Court to put the
D.C. Circuit order on hold.
Government lawyers, who did
not immediately ask for a hold
after the Tuesday ruling, may have
miscalculated how quickly the
teen could receive an abortion.
Texas law requires counseling
from a doctor at least 24 hours in
to multiple requests for comment
Wednesday. Lloyd is slated to testify Thursday before the House
Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on immigration and border security on unrelated immigration issues. He could also be
asked about the abortion case.
The D.C. Circuit’s ruling on
Tuesday to allow the abortion was
opposed by the court’s three active judges nominated to the
bench by Republican presidents.
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh said
the majority had created a new
right for undocumented immigrant minors in custody to “immediate abortion on demand.”
Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson went further in a separate
dissent finding that the undocumented teenager had no constitutional right to an elective abortion. “To conclude otherwise rewards lawlessness and erases the
fundamental difference between
citizenship and illegal presence in
our country,” she wrote.
Attorneys for the undocumented teenager had asked the full
appeals court to rehear her case
after the three-judge panel ruled 2
to 1 to give HHS until Oct. 31 to
find a sponsor to take custody of
the girl. That would have allowed
her to be released and to seek the
abortion without government involvement.
Government lawyers told the
court that prospective sponsors
had inquired about the teenager.

Contract questions prompt move for emergency manager in Puerto Rico
BY S TEVEN M UFSON
AND A ARON C . D AVIS
Puerto Rico’s financial oversight board is moving to install an
emergency manager at the island’s state-owned utility amid
criticism of a $300 million contract it awarded to a small Montana energy firm for work on the
territory’s crippled electrical
grid.
The board said Wednesday
that it intends to appoint Noel
Zamot, a retired Air Force colonel
and member of the oversight
panel, to oversee daily operations
of the Puerto Rico Electric Power
Authority.
The decision comes as House
and Senate Democrats called for
an investigation into the utility’s
agreement with Whitefish Energy. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-
Alaska) pledged to examine the
grid-rebuilding efforts at an upcoming hearing of the Committee
on Energy and Natural Resources, which she chairs. San Juan
Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on
Tuesday told Yahoo News that the
contract should be “voided right
away.”
The Washington Post reported
on Monday that Whitefish had
only two full-time employees on
the day Hurricane Maria hit the
island and had never taken on
repairs on the scale of the destruction suffered in Puerto Rico.
Whitefish has said that its expertise working in mountainous terrain qualifies it for the job and
that its business model calls for
rapidly expanding using subcontractors.
Whitefish and the utility
struck an agreement on Sept. 26,

six days after Maria swept
through, without a formal bidding process. About 80 percent of
customers still have no electricity.
“PREPA has made clear it is not
equipped for the enormous task
of quickly restoring the Island’s
power,” Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez
(D-N.Y.) said in a statement, using
the acronym for the utility. “The
Authority’s dubious decision to
contract with a small, inexperienced and obscure company further underscored the need for
intervention.”
House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the contract with Whitefish “highly suspect” and urged inspectors general to investigate.
Whitefish on Wednesday
clashed with San Juan’s mayor on
Twitter, saying her frustration
was “misplaced” and “demoralizing” to workers who had come to
the island to work on the recovery. “We’ve got 44 linemen rebuilding power lines in your city
& 40 more men just arrived,”
Whitefish replied. “Do you want
us to send them back or keep
working?”
Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said in a statement Tuesday
that he had directed his budget
office to review the contracts
awarded by the island’s utility.
His spokesman, Carlos Mercader, on Wednesday appeared to
reject the idea of an emergency
manager.
“The law is very clear,” he said,
referring to the legislation that
created the oversight board this
year when Puerto Rico could no
longer meet payments on more
than $70 billion in debt. “The
board can recommend whatever
it wants, but it’s the decision of
the governor how he is going to
run the government. The law that
was enacted does not allow them
to do a takeover of the government.”
The law says the oversight
board “may establish policies to
require prior oversight board approval of certain contracts.”

advance of an abortion, but the
17-year-old underwent that counseling Oct. 19, allowing her to go
forward with the procedure once
Chutkan issued her order.
By the time the Supreme Court
opened for business Wednesday,
it appears there was no issue left
for the justices to decide.
The teen was more than 15
weeks pregnant when her pregnancy was terminated. Texas bars
abortions, except in the case of a
medical emergency, after 20
weeks. In her statement, the teen
expressed frustration that the
government earlier took her to a
Christian pregnancy center,
where workers urged her to carry
the pregnancy to term.
“They made me see a doctor
that tried to convince me not to
abort and to look at sonograms,”
she said. “People I don’t even
know are trying to make me
change my mind.”
Democrats in Congress have
pressed Eric Hargan, acting secretary for the Department of Health
and Human Services, about why
the
Trump
administration
changed federal policy to block
access to abortions for minors in
custody.
HHS, which is responsible for
caring for detained unaccompanied minors, has said the government is trying to “promote child
birth and fetal life.” Scott Lloyd,
who directs the agency’s Office of
Refugee Resettlement, has personally intervened to try to persuade unaccompanied minor
girls not to have abortions, according to HHS.

U.S. panel endorses new, more e≠ective shingles vaccine
BY
L ENA H . S UN
A federal expert panel on
Wednesday recommended a new
and more effective shingles vaccine to protect adults 50 and older
from a painful rash that affects 1 in
3 people during their lifetime.
In a rare move, the Advisory
Committee on Immunization
Practices also recommended, by
an 8-to-7 vote, that the new Shingrix vaccine be preferred over the
existing Zostavax vaccine because
it provides far greater protection
and is expected to prevent significant disease, especially among the
elderly. The Food and Drug Administration approved the new
vaccine, made by GlaxoSmithKline, on Friday.
Shingrix is the first new vaccine
for shingles in a decade, and this is
the first time the panel is recommending that adults ages 50 to 59
be vaccinated — a group that
numbers about 42 million Ameri-
cans. The panel also recommended that anyone who previously
was vaccinated with Zostavaxe —
an estimated 20 million people —
be revaccinated with the new vaccine.
“This represents a major advance for people who want to be
protected against the disease and
its complications,” said Kathleen
Dooling, a medical officer with the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. The new vaccine has
the potential to prevent tens of
thousands of cases of shingles and
thousands of cases of its most
common complication, a debilitating nerve pain, she said.
The most common side effect is
a reaction at the injection site and
includes redness, swelling, muscle pain, fever and headache. Side
effects can last up to three days.
Recommendations from the
panel are usually adopted by the
CDC, which sets the immunization schedule for children and
adults. The recommendations
will be sent to the CDC director
and, if approved, will be published
as policy early next year.
Panel members had a vigorous
debate about recommending the
new vaccine over the existing one.
They agreed that clinical trials
showed Shingrix’s superior effectiveness.
Those who opposed a preferential recommendation raised concerns about the lack of data on its
performance among minority
groups and on the vaccine’s safety
and effectiveness in a real-world
setting.
The vaccine requires two doses,
compared with the existing vaccine, which is given in one shot.
“It’s never been given outside a
research setting,” said Cynthia
Pellegrini, senior vice president
for public policy at the March of
Dimes.
Others said the greater effectiveness and its longer-lasting
protection were the most important factors, noting that the CDC
and others will be continually
monitoring the vaccine's safety.
“Based on the information I
have seen today, how would you
explain not advising someone get
a vaccine that is expected to prevent serious disease more effectively than another product?”
asked Jeff Duchin, a health officer
for Seattle and King County, Wash.
By recommending adults start
receiving the vaccine at age 50 — a
decade earlier than the current
recommendation — the advisory
committee is hoping that millions
more people will be afforded protection from shingles, which is
caused by the chickenpox virus,
and its complications.
Shingrix is 97 percent effective
against shingles for those 50 to
59 years old, compared with about
70 percent for Zostavax, data
shows. For those in their 70s,
Shingrix is 91 percent effective,
compared with about 41 percent
for Zostavax.
For those in their 80s, who are
most at risk of developing complications, the new vaccine is about
five times as effective: 91 percent
vs. 18 percent.
Shingrix is also 91 percent effective in preventing the most common complication of shingles in
those 50 and older.
That nerve pain, known as
post-herpetic neuralgia, is felt in
areas where the shingles rash occurred and can last for months
and even years. In some cases, the
physical discomfort is so debilitating that the touch of clothing on
the skin causes searing pain.
The new vaccine’s protection
remains high four years after vaccination, data shows.
The older vaccine, Zostavax,
made by Merck, has been licensed
since 2006. Its one dose is 67 percent effective against severe nerve
pain in the first four years, accord-
ing to data presented at the meeting. Zostavax’s protection drops
after the first year, and it offers
virtually no protection after nine
years.
Anyone who has had chickenpox harbors the varicella-zoster
virus that causes the disease.
The virus can resurface decades
later, resulting in painful blisters
on one side of the body or face.
The risk of developing shingles
— which also can lead to pneumonia, hearing problems, blindness
and brain inflammation — increases with age.
GlaxoSmithKline has said the
price of Shingrix will be $280 for
the required two shots.
Merck’s one-shot Zostavax
costs $223. Most insurance plans
cover the shingles vaccine.

Student, visitor killed
at Grambling State
A student and a campus
visitor were fatally shot
overnight at Grambling State
University, and the gunman is
still on the loose, officials said
Wednesday.
Authorities began receiving
calls about midnight reporting
shots fired on the historically
black university’s campus in
northern Louisiana.
Police found two males on the
ground in a residential
courtyard, both dead.
The victims were identified as
Earl Andrews, a Grambling
senior, and his friend
Monquiarious Caldwell, both 23.
The shooter remains at large,
said Maj. Stephen Williams, a
spokesman for the Lincoln
Parish sheriff’s office.
Police on Wednesday
afternoon were still interviewing
witnesses, Williams said, and
attempting to identify a suspect.
An official from the Lincoln
Parish sheriff ’s office told the
Associated Press that the shooter
and victims knew each other “to
some extent.”
The fatal shooting apparently
began as “an altercation that
started inside one of the dorm
rooms and spilled out into the
courtyard,” Williams said.
No weapons were found at the
scene.
The Lincoln Parish sheriff ’s
office has taken over the
investigation from the
Grambling State University
police.
The shooting occurred during
Homecoming Week, when the
university, in the city of
Grambling, has a spike in
visitors.
Andrews, who was studying
criminal justice at Grambling
State, lived with his older
brother in Ruston, La., a short
distance from the university’s
campus, said the brother,
Ladarius Heard.

. THURSDAY,
Advocates hope for money, action on opioids
Trump is scheduled to
make an announcement
on the drug crisis
BY
AND
J ENNA J OHNSON
L ENNY B ERNSTEIN
President Trump promised
during the campaign to aggressively take on the opioid crisis,
but his efforts to address the
public health epidemic since taking office have been more show
than substance.
He has organized a commission to study the issue, but his
administration has not addressed
the problems outlined in its initial report.
He has listened to the stories of
people in recovery and the parents of children who have died of
overdoses, but much of his public
messaging is focused on telling
people not to start taking drugs.
And he has promised “to help
those who have become so badly
addicted,” but he has not secured
a significant increase in funding
for treatment while backing Republican health-care plans that
would cut Medicaid funding that
is instrumental in getting more
people treatment.
On Thursday, the president is
set to make “a very, very big
statement” regarding opioid
abuse, and advocates for the people and communities ravaged by
this crisis are hoping it is the
moment when Trump puts action
behind his words — laying out
specific steps to combat an epidemic that is killing nearly 100
people a day.
“The opioid epidemic must be
declared a federal emergency,”
said Gary Mendell, founder of the
treatment advocacy group Shatterproof. “Once done so, the lives
of our sons and daughters depend
on action being taken immediately to ensure that medicationassisted treatment is readily
available for every single American with an opioid use disorder.”
At the top of advocates’ wish
list is for Trump to propose a
major increase in funding. They
say billions of dollars are needed
for treatment and prevention and
BILL O’LEARY/THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump appointed a commission to study the opioid crisis, but his administration has not
addressed the problems outlined in the commission’s initial report.
to keep the staggering number of
drug users alive.
Earlier this year, Sens. Rob
Portman (R-Ohio) and Shelley
Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) sought
$45 billion for opioid abuse programs during debate on legislation that would repeal the Affordable Care Act. But that bill never
passed, and the effort to secure
more spending has stalled.
There are concerns that Trump
on Thursday will either sidestep
the funding issue or propose a
modest amount of new money.
In an interview with Washington Post opinion writer Greg Sargent this week, Patrick Kennedy, a
former Democratic congressman
from Rhode Island who is a member of the president’s commission, described the internal White
House debate as: “Can we do this
on the cheap, or are we going to be
serious about saving lives?”
White House press secretary
Sarah Huckabee Sanders said
Tuesday that the president “absolutely” plans to quickly get additional help to addicts, but she
declined to detail what he will
announce.
“This is obviously a growing
epidemic that the president is
very committed to fighting
against,” Sanders said at a news
briefing.
While the crisis has afflicted
communities across the country,
it has especially devastated many
of the states that were key to
Trump’s electoral victory last
year.
Last week, the president
caught many of his advisers off
guard when he announced he
planned to formally declare the
opioid crisis a national emergency.
“That’s a big step,” Trump said
during a news conference in the
Rose Garden on Oct. 16. “That is a
very, very big statement. It’s a very
important step.”
This is not a new idea for the
president. In late July, the commission that he appointed to fight
addiction and the opioid epidemic urgently recommended declaring a national emergency. New
Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), the
leader of the commission, has
repeatedly urged the president to
follow through on this recommendation.
In early August, Trump told
reporters that he considers the
crisis a “national emergency” and
promised that his administration
would soon file the necessary
paperwork. “I’m saying officially
right now: It is an emergency. It’s
a national emergency,” he said.
“We’re going to spend a lot of
time, a lot of effort and a lot of
money on the opioid crisis.”
At the time, aides to the president said the White House was
still reviewing the commission’s
numerous interim recommendations. The commission is expected to issue a final report Nov. 1.
The commission has suggested
that Trump declare the emergency under either the Public Health
Service Act or the Stafford Act,
both of which allow the government to issue temporary waivers
of some federal regulations and
quickly move resources.
Under the public health law,
for example, the government
might be able to send Public
Health Service personnel to help
in hard-hit areas. Under the
Stafford Act, the government
could designate some states and
localities as disaster zones and
eligible for funding from the federal Disaster Relief Fund, just as
they would be following a tornado or hurricane.
Government lawyers concluded that the two laws generally
don’t fit well with the kind of
long-term, ongoing challenge
posed by the opioid crisis, according to a government official with
knowledge of the deliberations.
And neither law provides a large
sum of money.
That led to discussions of
whether the president should
simply acknowledge the emergency and throw resources into
the crisis, offering the “tremendous symbolic power” of his
promise to battle the epidemic,
according to the official. For funding, Congress authorized $1 billion for opioid treatment over two
years through the 21st Century
Cures Act in 2016, and the administration has sent the first
$500 million out to the states. But
officials acknowledge that more
money is needed.
“None of these laws were intended to be long-term solutions,”
said Tina Batra Hershey, an assistant professor of health policy
and management at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate
School of Public Health. “That’s
the question here. It’s unprecedented.”
There are few options available
to the president that haven’t already been suggested.
As Trump’s commission reported, 27 million people said they
were using illegal drugs in 2015,
yet only 10 percent of the 21 million with substance abuse disorders receive any kind of treatment. The commission recommended a rapid increase in treatment capacity, including better
access to “medically assisted
treatment” with drugs such as
buprenorphine, which studies indicate is the most effective strategy.
It also proposed making naloxone, the antidote for opioid overdoses, more widely available,
along with a requirement that
doctors prescribe it when they
order the use of high-risk opioids.
Mendell said naloxone should be
available “everywhere there is a
fire extinguisher.”
The White House maintains
that the administration has already taken a number of steps to
address the crisis: dedicating additional resources to crack down
on drug trafficking on the southern border with Mexico, launching an awareness campaign, and
sending administration officials
and first lady Melania Trump into
the country to learn more about
the crisis.

Lawmakers to DEA: Use more legal muscle against opioids
Hearing touches on
2016 measure that
reduced agency’s options
BY L ENNY B ERNSTEIN
AND S COTT H IGHAM
Lawmakers urged the Drug Enforcement Administration to seek
more legal authority if it is needed
to battle the nation’s opioid epidemic, telling an official they are
awaiting suggestions on how they
can help stem the worst drug crisis in U.S. history.
“Give us suggestions. Talk to us.
We want to do the right thing,”
Rep. Gus M. Bilirakis (R-Fla.) implored at a hearing held Wednesday by the House Energy and
Commerce Committee. “We need
to know the tools that you need to
handle this. We’re on the same
team with regard to this.”
The offers to Neil Doherty, deputy assistant administrator of the
DEA’s Office of Diversion Control,
which battles abuse of prescription opioids, came in the wake of a
joint report by The Washington
Post and “60 Minutes” that Congress had stripped the DEA of its
most potent enforcement weapon
against giant companies whose
drugs are sometimes illegally diverted onto the street.
The 2016 law, approved by
unanimous consent in both houses of Congress and signed by President Barack Obama, was pushed
through by a handful of lawmakers allied with the drug distribution companies.
In the House, where a drug industry attorney helped craft an
early version of the bill, the leader
of that effort was Rep. Tom Marino
(R-Pa.), who fought the DEA for
nearly two years to win passage of
the measure. Marino was Presi-
dent Trump’s nominee to head the
White House Office of National
Drug Control Policy but withdrew
two days after the reports.
In the Senate, the law’s primary
sponsor was Sen. Orrin G. Hatch
(R-Utah), who negotiated a final
version with DEA and Justice Department officials.
Hatch and Marino have blasted
the news reports, pointing out
that Justice and the DEA agreed to
the final version of the law and
made no attempts to halt its passage or enlist a member of the
Senate to stop it. DEA officials
have said they accepted a compromise on a law they did not want
after negotiating the best deal
they believed they could get.
Emails included in the Oct. 15
reports support that contention.
On Wednesday, Doherty repeatedly told the committee that
the DEA would be happy to work
with Congress and the Justice Department to develop recommen-
dations for the authority it needs.
He provided no specifics.
Asked by Bilirakis whether the
new law had hampered enforcement, he said it “changes the way
we look” at the issuance of immediate suspension orders, “but
we use an array of other tools.”
Lawmakers referred at times to
the joint investigation during
Wednesday’s hearing, called to review the federal effort against the
opioid epidemic that is claiming
91 lives a day in the nation.
Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), a cosponsor of the Marino bill, noted
that the DEA’s use of its authority
to freeze drug shipments from
company warehouses began to decline sharply after 2011, years before the new law was enacted.
“Unless the effect of the law
occurred before the passage of the
law,” it isn’t reasonable to blame
Congress’s action, he suggested.
But the reports by The Post and
“60 Minutes” said the slowdown
began for another reason about
2013, when attorneys at DEA headquarters began to delay the enforcement efforts of agents in the
field. Some DEA attorneys worried
that courts might not support
their legal arguments, though they
had never lost that kind of case.
The new law, enacted in 2016,
effectively stripped the DEA of the
authority to issue immediate suspension orders.
“The question is: Why did the
agency stop using that tool or dramatically reduce the use of that
tool?” Committee Chairman Greg
Walden (R-Ore.) asked Doherty.
A few lawmakers also threatened during the hearing to subpoena information from the DEA,
accusing the agency of delaying
responses for six months to their
questions about wholesale drug
distributors that poured millions
of pain pills into West Virginia.

Trump administration to allow speedy expansion of drone use
BY
M ICHAEL L ARIS
The White House on Wednesday announced that it will allow
a swift and dramatic expansion
of the way drones are used across
the United States, saying President Trump was following
through on his promise to the
industry to slash regulatory barriers that are sending companies
to test the technology overseas.
Trump signed a memorandum
directing Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to create a pilot
program allowing local, state
and tribal governments to apply
to establish “innovation zones”
where far-reaching drone operations would be permitted. Those
zones could be as large as an
entire state.
That would allow companies
or governments to operate
drones in ways that are restricted by the Federal Aviation Administration under current
rules. Jurisdictions might, for
example, be able to deliver packages overnight across an entire
community, something not done
under today’s restrictions.
The proposal offers a path for
jurisdictions that are enthusiastic about drones to push ahead
quickly. It does not, however,
answer growing questions about
how communities that want to
curtail drone usage might proceed.
The federal government has
ruled the nation’s “navigable
airspace” since early last century, and the proliferation of
low-flying quadcopters and other unmanned aircraft systems, or
UAS, has raised questions about
what powers local governments
have over their communities.
Legislation has been introduced in Congress to further
limit what local and state governments can do — or to give
them greater authority to impose
“reasonable” limits on flights
under 200 feet, for example.
An administration official said
the goal of the pilot program “is
to enable, not restrict, UAS integration into the national airspace above local jurisdictions.”
However, the official said, in
the context of expansion, certain
limits could be part of the mix.
“Localities that want to propose reasonable time, manner
and place restrictions in expanding UAS operations in their localities would be a model that could
be piloted,” the official said.
How that might work in practice remains unclear, as are some
other program details, including
how the Transportation Department would determine whether
there is widespread local support
for the state or local proposals.
White House officials said that
a transformation is afoot and
that the economic development
and social benefits of broadening
drone use demand action to clear
bureaucratic hurdles.
“America’s skies are changing
— UAS now outnumber manned
aircraft, which had dominated
our airspace since World War II,”
said Michael Kratsios, deputy
assistant to the president at the
White House Office of Science
and Technology Policy.
“Our regulatory framework
has not kept pace with this
change,” he added.
Kratsios noted that Alphabet’s
Project Wing, which is building
delivery drones, is testing in
Australia and that Amazon.com,
which is aggressively pursuing
package delivery by drone, is
testing in Britain.
(Amazon chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos owns The Washington Post.)
Kratsios said that further
opening U.S. skies to infrastructure inspections and emergency
management operations and enabling commerce will be broadly
beneficial and provide the government with data for rewriting
regulations moving forward.
The White House said the
pilot program will streamline the
permission process in three key
areas that are now restricted:
flying over people, at night, and
beyond the view of an operator.
Transportation Department
officials said in a statement that
the pilot program will also tackle
potential safety issues and examine how technology might address them. Those include using
“detect and avoid” technologies,
so drones would potentially veer
away from collisions, and testing
ways of disabling them under
certain circumstances.
The administration said the
program will also allow the testing of new air traffic management systems for drones and
help explore the best technology
tools for tracking where drones
go, an issue that has divided
industry leaders and others.
Rep. Jason Lewis (R-Minn.)
said that he was pleased to see
Trump’s recognition of the role of
drones in the nation’s future
growth but that the pilot program “doesn’t go far enough in
protecting local control and the
rights to privacy and property.”
Lewis said an important next
step “is to ensure that our
communities cannot only help
expand the beneficial uses of
drones but that they also have
the ability to take effective action when it comes to putting in
place reasonable limitations on
public use.” He said the bipartisan legislation he has proposed
does that.
Doug Johnson, vice president
of technology policy for the Consumer Technology Association,
called the Trump administration’s plan “a smart way to engage local governments and
community stakeholders, enable
expanded and beneficial drone
operations, and support a datadriven approach to future federal actions.”
Federal transportation officials said governments should
“partner with the private sector
to develop pilot proposals.” They
said they will “invite a minimum
of five partnerships,” though that
total could end up significantly
higher.
The president’s memo said
Chao should, in coordination
with the secretaries of defense
and homeland security, as well as
the attorney general, take “necessary and appropriate” steps to
“mitigate risks” to public safety
and national security when
choosing proposals, though it
did not describe those steps.
The memo instructs Chao to
begin the first pilot program
within a year.

Clinton
campaign
taciturn
on dossier
BY T OM H AMBURGER AND
R OSALIND S . H ELDERMAN
Hillary Clinton and top officials of her presidential campaign
were largely silent Wednesday in
response to the revelation that
the campaign and the Democratic
National Committee had paid for
research that resulted in a dossier
alleging Russian interference on
behalf of President Trump in the
2016 election.
Neither Clinton nor her campaign manager, Robby Mook, responded to requests for comment
Wednesday. Campaign chair John
Podesta referred reporters to a
statement issued the previous day
by the campaign’s law firm saying
officials had not been aware of the
arrangement.
Brian Fallon, the former campaign spokesman, said he didn’t
know about the research at the
time but called it “money well
spent” if it provided information
useful to the special counsel now
investigating Russia’s involvement.
Trump, meanwhile, told reporters Wednesday that the involvement of the DNC and the
Clinton campaign was “a very sad
commentary on politics in this
country. . . . I think it is a disgrace.”
The Washington Post reported
Tuesday that Democratic attorney Marc E. Elias had retained the
research firm Fusion GPS, which
later hired Christopher Steele, a
former British intelligence agent
who had worked on Russia-related issues. Steele drafted reports in
2016 that were later compiled into
a dossier alleging Trump had ties
to Russia and was benefiting from
Kremlin interest in his campaign.
Elias’s firm, Perkins Coie, represented the Clinton campaign
and the DNC.
The new report is likely to provide ammunition to Trump and
his allies, who have long portrayed the dossier as a partisan
document designed to undermine the election results.
U.S. intelligence agencies concluded last year that Russia had
intervened in the 2016 election to
help elect Trump. But GOP congressional investigators have
shown interest in exposing the role
that Democratic money played in
the dossier and have questioned
whether the FBI’s initial inquiries
into possible Trump campaign coordination with Russia were driven by partisan concerns.
Officials have said the FBI has
confirmed some of the information
in the dossier, though not its most
sensational accusations. Steele began providing the FBI with information about his research before
the election. In September, FBI
agents working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III traveled to
London to debrief Steele more
thoroughly about his work.
The top Democrat on the House
Intelligence Committee, Rep.
Adam B. Schiff (Calif.), said he
thought Republicans were trying
to divert attention from what was
important about the dossier,
which was already known to have
been funded by partisan interests.
“Christopher Steele, no matter
who was paying for his services,
may have discovered before our
own intelligence agencies that the
Russians were going to interfere
in our election on behalf of Donald Trump,” Schiff told MSNBC on
Tuesday night.
DNC officials were muted in
their response to the report that
party money had been used to
underwrite Steele’s research.
A spokesman for Rep. Debbie
Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), who
was DNC chairwoman at the time
Perkins Coie contracted with Fusion GPS, said Wednesday that
the former chair was “not aware”
of the law firm’s arrangement
with Fusion GPS.
Federal Election Commission
records show that the Clinton
campaign paid Perkins Coie
$5.6 million in legal fees from
June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign finance records, and the DNC paid the firm
$3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since November
2015. Some of those total fees
were apparently paid to Fusion
GPS.
Former top aides to Clinton and
the DNC were reluctant to discuss
the arrangement Wednesday, but
several spoke on the condition of
anonymity to defend it.
“This is what campaigns do,”
one former campaign official said.
“It makes sense for a law firm to
contract that work and maintain
confidentiality because it is extremely risky,” the official said.

baghdad — Once derided as a
“traffic warden” by members of
his own party, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has won
public and political praise for
sending troops to reclaim disputed territory after the Kurdish
independence vote last month.
The action has earned the
Iraqi leader the prestige that
eluded him after successive victories against the Islamic State.
Even some of his traditional
critics have called his decision
“wise” and “shrewd.”
By moving forcefully, Abadi
has burnished his nationalist credentials and quieted potential
challengers in next year’s elections who are backed by Iran and
espouse policies of Shiite dominance, analysts and Iraqi politicians said.
For the United States, Abadi’s
surging popularity is probably
the silver lining of a crisis that
has pitted two of its closest
political and military allies — the
Iraqi government and the Kurds
— against each other. Many Iraqi
politicians say Abadi has all but
assured his reelection next year.
“A referendum by arms,” said
Saad al-Muttalibi, a member of
Baghdad’s provincial council and
a close ally of former prime
minister Nouri al-Maliki, a likely
challenger to Abadi in elections
slated for next spring.
“The general perception is that
he’s indecisive in his moves,”
Muttalibi said. “But what he did
last week proved everybody
wrong, including myself. He was
very decisive and very stubborn
in his approach. He stuck to the
law and the constitution.”
It remains unclear how far
Abadi is planning to go in the
push to reclaim territory lost to
the Kurds in 2014 as the Islamic
State swept through the country.
But Abadi’s supporters warn that
he must resume negotiations
with the Kurdish authorities and
keep forces away from Kurdish
cities, or risk squandering the
goodwill he has earned with Iraqi
voters and regional powers.
“The referendum is over and
now belongs to the past. We have
finished it on the ground,” Abadi
declared last week in a rare
moment of public bluster by a
politician who has never quite
shed the perception that he has
been indecisive since he came to
office in 2014.
The first test of Abadi’s willingness to moderate his response
to the Kurds came early Wednesday, when the Kurdish government issued a statement calling
for an immediate cease-fire in
exchange for “suspending” the
results of the referendum and
entering into negotiations with
Baghdad based on constitutionally enshrined guidelines on borders and revenue sharing.
Abadi, who has said he will
enter talks only if the referendum
result is annulled, has not yet
responded to what amounts to a
precipitous comedown for the
Kurdish authorities. Not engaging in talks raises the specter of
further military clashes between
Iraqi and Kurdish forces to control northern borders with Syria
and Turkey.
Although the military action
in Kirkuk has sparked a feverish
debate in Washington over waning U.S. influence as Iran asserts
itself as a regional power, Iraqis
have viewed it as a critical move
to avoid a much-feared partition

Abadi: U.S., Iran should take rivalry elsewhere

baghdad — As Iraqi forces reclaim the last
stretches of territory held by the Islamic
State, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said
he would not allow his country to become
an arena for the United States, Iran and
Sunni powers to fight out their rivalries.
“We would like to work with you, both of
you,” Abadi said of the United States and
Iran. “But please don’t bring your trouble
inside Iraq. You can sort it anywhere else.”
Abadi’s comments came in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday about the Kurdish
referendum on independence last month,
his decision to send troops into areas
disputed by his government and the Kurds,
and the anticipated post-Islamic State era.
The prime minister said the United
States has begun to draw down its military
presence in the country from its peak of
5,200 troops since the battle against the
Islamic State began. He said that U.S. air
power won’t be needed after the Islamic
State is defeated in an area in western Iraq
along the Syrian border.
The next phase of cooperation between
the two nations will be centered on sharing
intelligence and training Iraqi forces to
ensure that another militant group doesn’t
emerge and that a weakened Islamic State
does not conduct devastating attacks outside its shrinking pockets in Iraq.
“They’re going to cause problems some-
of the country.
The move has also won the
support of Sunni politicians who
previously expressed reservations about a second term for
Abadi.
“His policies in leading the
country are not entirely clear to
us,” said former deputy prime
minister Salam al-Zaubai, citing
Abadi’s membership in Dawa, a
Shiite Islamist party that also
counts Maliki as a senior leader.
where else,” Abadi said of the militant
group. “It’s not in our interest, nor in the
interest of other countries in the region, for
terrorists to regroup again.”
The Trump administration has vowed to
take a tougher stance on Iranian expansionism but has not clearly defined the U.S.
role in Iraq after the Islamic State has been
evicted.
Abadi, who faces elections next spring,
said he envisions Iraq becoming an impor-

trouble inside Iraq. You can

tant security and economic partner to its
regional allies. The struggle to evict the
Islamic State, lasting more than three years,
has decimated large cities, displaced millions and contributed to a financial crisis.
Establishing strong state institutions
and dealing with neighboring countries
from a position of mutual interest are the
keys to rebuilding the country, he told The
Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal
and the Los Angeles Times.
To that end, Abadi has traveled to Saudi
“But in general we are very
comfortable with what happened
in Kirkuk because it was something that needed to be done long
time ago.”
In the weeks leading up to the
Kirkuk offensive, American officials made clear that the burden
fell on the Kurdish leadership to
offer concessions to Abadi, who
the
Trump
administration
thought was “grievously hurt by
the referendum,” said one U.S.
Arabia, Egypt and Turkey in recent days to
deliver a message that Iraq is open for
business. He is expected to visit Iran this
week.
“Iraq is getting stronger, getting unified,”
Abadi said during the interview, which took
place inside Baghdad’s fortified Green
Zone. “I think others, or the interference of
others in the affairs of Iraq, will become less
and less. This is a new-built confidence
among Iraqis, the Iraqi national feeling,
which our aim is to increase — people’s
attachment to their own country.”
A nascent vision of Iraqi nationalism has
fueled support for Abadi’s tough military
response to last month’s Kurdish bid for
independence. His supporters and even
some of his critics have praised his decision
to take control of territory claimed by both
his government and the Kurds.
But Kurdish and some U.S. officials have
questioned the role of Iranian-backed Shiite militias in the Iraqi operation, with
accusations that Iran was largely in control
of the decision to move in troops.
Abadi rejected that notion. He said he is
sympathetic to Kurdish aspirations for
independence but that their “unilateral”
steps toward full autonomy was a threat to
regional security. Abadi said he warned
Masoud Barzani, the president of the Kurdish region, ahead of the referendum that he
risked being “on the wrong side of history.”
official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss
private negotiations.
“Our policy is they need to do
something to help Abadi. It’s not
starting out on an equal basis,”
the official said.
Trump administration officials were frustrated that the
Kurds had rebuffed a proposal
that U.S. officials claimed would
have given the Kurdish leadership a face-saving way to post-
tamer.el-ghobashy@washpost.com
pone the referendum.
Abadi had informed U.S. diplomats of his intention to order
forces into Kirkuk, but did not
reveal the timing and scale of the
operation, people close to Abadi
said.
“This was coordinated by Mr.
Abadi himself; he did not have any
other choice but to move,” said
Mowaffak al-Rubaie, a lawmaker
who sits on the security and
defense committee in parliament.
As the Iraqi forces swept into
Kirkuk and reclaimed its vast
oil fields and municipal buildings, the United States issued
conflicting responses. U.S. diplomats in Baghdad said the
United States supported Iraq’s
right to impose federal control
over contested areas, while
President Trump said the United States remained neutral in
the dispute.
The differing U.S. responses
fueled a perception among U.S.
officials and some Iraqis that
Iran had superseded the United
States as the most important
power broker in Iraq.
The Iraqi forces who moved on
Kirkuk and other places in northern Iraq included Shiite militias
with ties to Tehran, fueling intense speculation of Iran’s role in
the campaign.
Iraqi Kurdish officials and
some Iraqi politicians have concluded that Abadi acted on behalf of Iran, which fears that
Kurdish independence in Iraq
would provoke a similar action
among its own sizable Kurdish
population.
“The prime minister will take
advantage of what happened,
and of course it will raise his
popularity in the street,” said
Izzat Shahbandar, a former Iraqi
lawmaker. “But the reality is that
[Iran] had the main role in
achieving this scenario.”
Shahbandar pointed to the
high-profile presence of Iranian
Gen. Qasem Soleimani, Iran’s
military point man in Iraq and
Syria, in Iraq before and after the
referendum vote and in the leadup to the sweep of Kirkuk.
Kurdish officials said Soleimani brokered a deal in which
peshmerga fighters from a Kurdish faction who were lukewarm
on the referendum stood down
when Iraqi forces entered
Kirkuk.
But two people close to Abadi,
who spoke on the condition of
anonymity to discuss sensitive
government planning, gave a different account of how it played
out. They said Soleimani entered
the negotiations only after Abadi
and those Kurdish officials
had reached the framework of an
agreement. Soleimani helped
persuade the Kurds to call on
their forces to retreat, telling
them they were vastly outnumbered.
Soleimani’s interjection delayed Abadi’s plan to move on
Kirkuk by two days in the hopes
that Kurdish President Masoud
Barzani would agree to enter
negotiations. The talks failed, but
Soleimani’s warnings were “partially helpful in convincing them
to avoid bloodshed. Some of what
he said had a profound impact,”
said a person close to Abadi who
spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive planning.
“Soleimani came in, but he was
not the architect of all this,” the
person said.
Political opponents will be
looking to exploit strategic mistakes by Abadi, said Sajad Jiyad,
an analyst at the Al-Bayan Center
for Planning and Studies, a think
tank based in Baghdad.
“It means he has a bigger
target on this back now that the
perception is that he can win in a
landslide,” he said, “and that
other Shiite groups will have less
of a say in how things are done.”

Israel approves new

Israel on Wednesday approved
construction of nearly 200 new
homes in a Jewish housing
development in East Jerusalem,
pushing ahead with a recent surge
of settlement construction.
The decision by Jerusalem city
officials followed last week’s
approval to move forward with
about 3,000 new homes in the

meanwhile, said officials are set to
advance a plan that would make a

Xi forges path to the future
Freshly elected leaders and a new outlook on socialism with Chinese characteristics
will take the country into the coming decades. AN BAIJIE reports
T
he Communist Party of
China unveiled its new
leadership on October 24 at
a key congress that issued
a blueprint for the nation’s
development for the coming decades.
The new CPC Central Committee,
elected by 2,336 delegates and
specially invited delegates at the
closing session of the 19th CPC
National Congress, has 204 members
and 172 alternate members.
“The congress elected a new Central
Committee of the Party, realizing
organizational succession,” Xi Jinping
said, addressing the closing session.
X i , a l s o p re s i d e n t o f C h i n a ,
was elected into the new Central
Committee. Also elected were Wang
Huning, Liu Qibao, Xu Qiliang, Sun
Chunlan, Li Keqiang,WangYang,Zhang
Chunxian, Zhao Leji, Hu Chunhua, Li
Zhanshu and Han Zheng.
Xi and Li Keqiang were members
of the Standing Committee of the
Political Bureau of the 18th CPC
Central Committee. The others were
all members of the Political Bureau of
the 18th CPC Central Committee.
The 19th CPC Central Committee
was to elect the Political Bureau, the
Standing Committee of the Political
Bureau and the general secretary at
its first plenary session on October 25.
The congress approved a report of
the 18th CPC Central Committee and a
work report of the Central Commission
for Discipline Inspection.A new Central
Commission for Discipline Inspection
was also elected at the congress.
The congress formed the major
political judgment that socialism with
Chinese characteristics has entered
a new era, according to a resolution it
adopted.
“We must devote great energy to
addressing development’s imbalances
and inadequacies, and push hard to
improve the quality and effect of
development,” the report said.
C h i n a ’s so c i a l i st syste m
demonstrates great strength and
vitality, and the Chinese people and
the Chinese nation embrace brilliant
prospects, Xi said at the closing
session of the congress.
“Our Party shows strong, firm and
vibrant leadership,” he said.
It has been 96 years since the
CPC was founded, 68 years since
the People’s Republic of China was
established and 39 years since reform
and opening-up began.
“Living in such a great era, we are all
the more confident and proud,and also
feel the heavy weight of responsibility

upon us,” Xi said.
The CPC has united and led the
Chinese people in ending“once and for
all” the miserable plight of old China,
which had been bullied by foreign
aggressors following the Opium War
of 1840, and in walking completely out
of poverty and weakness, Xi said.
He described the congress as
one “remaining true to our original
aspiration and our mission, holding
high our banner, and forging ahead in
solidarity”.
Xi called on delegates to the congress
to study, observe, apply and uphold
the Party Constitution, and closely
follow the CPC Central Committee
in thinking, political orientation and
actions.
“In our Party, each and every one
of us must always breathe the same
breath as the people, share the same
future and stay truly connected to
them. The aspirations of the people
to live a better life must always be the
focus of our efforts. We must keep on
striving with endless energy toward
the great goal of national rejuvenation.”
Analysts said the congress has not
only opened a new chapter for China’s
development for the new era, but has
also contributed Chinese wisdom and
solutions for the world at a time when
global economic growth still faces
uncertainties.
Da n Do n ova n , p u b l i s h e r a n d
managing editor of Ottawa Life
Magazine, said China’s entering the
new era is “the most significant and
exciting news of the congress”.
B.R. Deepak, a professor at the
Center of Chinese and Southeast
Asian Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru
University in New Delhi, said that
China has been steadily contributing
to global governance in the face of
increasing disequilibrium among
the global economies and the global
challenges posed by traditional and
nontraditional security.

“The congress further enhances
cohesion and promotes consensus
within the Party. It provides a clearer

‘Two Centenary Goals.’”

former US secretary of
defense
“I have very often said that China’s
transformation in recent decades is
one of the most remarkable events
in human history. I trust that General
Secretary Xi Jinping’s statement of his
vision for China’s future will enable this
transformation to continue to flourish.”
Bakhtiyor Saidov,
Uzbek ambassador to
China
“I can say with confidence that since
the 18th Congress in 2012, under the
leadership of General Secretary
Xi Jinping, China has become the
leading force in world development
and an important player in ensuring
peace on the planet.”
TheXiJinpingThought on Socialism
with Chinese Characteristics for a New
Era was written into the Constitution
of the Communist Party of China as a
new component of the Party’s guide
for action, according to a resolution of
the 19th CPC National Congress.
Unanimously agreed upon by Party
delegates, the amendment to the
Constitution — the CPC’s fundamental
document for its more than 89 million
members — juxtaposed Xi Jinping
Thought on Socialism with Chinese
Characteristics for a New Era with
Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong
Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the
Theory of Three Represents and the
Scientific Outlook on Development.
In response to contemporary
developments and by integrating
theory with practice, Chinese
Communists, with Xi, also China’s
president,as their chief representative,
have given shape to Xi Jinping
Thought on Socialism with Chinese
Characteristics for a New Era since
the 18th CPC National Congress, the
resolution said.
It has “systematically addressed
the major question of our times —
what kind of socialism with Chinese
characteristics the new era requires
us to uphold and develop and how
we should uphold and develop it,” the
document said.
It “must be upheld long term and
constantly developed,” the resolution
said.
“The Thought is a continuation
and development of MarxismLeninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng
Xiaoping Theory, the Theory of Three
Represents,and the Scientific Outlook
on Development,” it said.
“It is the latest achievement in
adapting Marxism to the Chinese
context,acrystallizationofthepractical
experience and collective wisdom of
the Party and the people,” it said.
The resolution hailed the new era
thought as “an important component
of the theoretical system of socialism
with Chinese characteristics, and a
guide to action for the entire Party
and all the Chinese people to strive for
the great rejuvenation of the Chinese
nation”.
Under the guidance of Xi’s new
era thought, “the CPC has led the
Chinese people of all ethnic groups
in a concerted effort to carry out
a great struggle, develop a great
project, advance a great cause, and
realize a great dream, ushering in a
new era of socialism with Chinese
characteristics,” it said.
In the resolution, the CPC urged all
Party members to use new era thought
to achieve unity in thinking and
action and be more purposeful and
determined in studying and applying
it throughout the drive toward China’s
socialist modernization and Party
building.
According to the resolution, a wide
range of new ideas, thinking and
strategies put forward by the CPC
Central Committee with Xi at the
core have also been added to the
Constitution, such as giving play to
the decisive role of market forces in
resource allocation,advancing supplyside structural reform and enhancing
the country’s cultural soft power.
Xi’s military thinking and the Party’s
“absolute” leadership over the armed
forces have also been included in the
Party’s Constitution.
According to the resolution,the CPC
will uphold its absolute leadership over
the People’s LiberationArmy and other
people’s armed forces and implement
Xi’s thinking on strengthening the
military.
The development of the PLA will
be strengthened by enhancing its
political loyalty, strengthening it
through reform and technology, and
running it in accordance with the law,
the resolution said.
The CPC will build people’s forces
that obey the Party’s command, can
fight and win, and maintain excellent
conduct to ensure that the PLA
accomplishes its missions and tasks
in the new era, it said.
The inclusion of these statements
in the Party Constitution will “help
ensure the Party’s absolute leadership
over the people’s armed forces, (and)
modernize national defense and the
military,” it said.
In addition, the amendment to the
CPC Constitution clarified that the
chairperson of the Central Military
Co m m i ss i o n a ss u m es ove ra l l
responsibility over the work of the
commission and that it is responsible
for Party work and political work in the
armed forces.
This complies with the realistic
requirementto ensure thecommission
fulfills its responsibility for Party selfsupervision and self-governance after
the military reform,the resolution said.
Congress delegates also agreed
to write the culture of socialism with
Chinese characteristics into the CPC
Constitution, along with the path,
theory and system of socialism with
Chinese characteristics.
In addition, the amendment
included an assessment of the change
in the “principal contradiction” facing
Chinese society, which serves as an
important basis on which the CPC and
China formulate major policies and
long-term strategies.
The CPC said the contradiction
facing Chinese society is “between
unbalanced and inadequate
development and the people’s evergrowing need for a better life”.
Previously the maxim, which had
stood for 36 years, was described
as one between “the ever-growing
material and cultural needs of
the people and backward social
production.”

O∞cial ‘dumbfounded’ by scramble to get word on soldiers
NIGER FROM A1
“The initial report was more
than one person missing and a
number of people wounded,” the
official said. “It was very confusing.”
The confusion and delays in
receiving and transmitting information between field commanders, through the U.S. Africa Command in Germany, to the Pentagon and then to the White House
underscores the chaotic nature of
the firefight. More broadly, it illustrates the difficulty of determining facts on faraway battlefields. In this case, the lack of firm
information over so long a period
was especially striking to those
on the receiving end.
“My whole life, I’ve never seen
something like that happen,” the
senior official said of the scramble to determine how many soldiers were missing or dead. “I was
dumbfounded by it.”
Nearly three weeks later, Gen.
Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on
Monday described the deadly
Niger attack as a “very complex
situation.”
It remains unclear how long it
took before officials at the Pentagon and U.S. Africa Command
fully understood what had happened and confirmed that one
soldier remained missing. Once
that was clear, Pentagon officials
that evening ordered the deploy-
ment of U.S.-based elite commando units to look for Sgt. La David
Johnson, an Army mechanic.
Johnson was attached to the
Niger-based Special Operations
unit that had come under attack.
It is unknown whether the
commandos participated in the
search for Johnson, whose body
was eventually recovered and
turned over to U.S. forces by
Nigerien troops on Oct. 6, two
days after the attack.
U.S. officials expressed skepticism that Johnson, alive or dead,
was ever in the hands of the
attacking enemy force, a local
group believed to be affiliated
with the Islamic State. “I suspect
that he got separated” from the
rest of the unit and was killed, the
official said. “I strongly doubt he
was captured by the enemy.” Administration and Washingtonbased defense officials who discussed the attack and the administration response spoke on the
condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to talk
to reporters.
Trump, who made no public
comment about the deaths until
more than a week after they occurred, said Wednesday that he
did not “specifically” authorize
the original mission, which officials have described as a routine
reconnaissance tour by troops
based in Niger to train local forces. The 12-man U.S. unit, accompanying about 30 Nigerien sol-
diers, traveled two hours by land
to the village of Tongo Tongo, in
the southwest corner of Niger, on
Oct 3. The next morning, they
spoke with village elders and began the trip back to their base.
U.S. officials are still probing
exactly how the travelers were
ambushed, became separated on
the battlefield and apparently
lost communication with each
other. The team did not contact
its commanders in Niamey for an
hour after the attack began.
Two U.S. military officials said
Johnson may have lost contact
with his unit because they were
ambushed twice in succession by
the militants. That detail, first
reported by NBC News, may explain the delayed call for assistance. Five Nigerien soldiers were
also killed.
Dunford speculated that the
troops delayed the request for
help because they initially
thought they had the situation
under control.
U.S. officials, who have said
that a U.S. surveillance drone was
overhead during the incident, described a scene in which small
elements of U.S. and Nigerien
troops were firing and maneuvering for cover under the enemy
assault. “I personally think the
American and Nigerien force was
just overwhelmed,” the administration official said. “They met up
with a pretty serious, professional
force.”
Once the besieged U.S. troops
contacted their headquarters,
U.S. forces in Niamey requested
aid from the much larger French
military contingent based there.
French Mirage jets took off within
30 minutes and reached the scene
of the attack, near the border with
Mali, a half-hour later. But they
did not fire, officials said, to avoid
hitting friendly forces scattered
along with the enemy across the
combat zone.
French helicopters, traveling
farther and much more slowly
from a base in the Malian city of
Goa, did not arrive until an hour
after that. It was unclear whether
the battle was still underway
when they reached the scene.
Still hours later, Dunford received a call from Marine Gen.
Thomas D. Waldhauser, head of
the U.S. Africa Command, that
sparked the Pentagon to deploy
members of the secretive Joint
Special Operations Command to
the region. With Johnson confirmed missing, military officials
feared that he might be alive and
could fall into enemy hands, three
officials said.
The area where the U.S. unit
was operating, on what its orders
called a “civil reconnaissance
mission,” was relatively new to
American forces in Niger, who
have conducted numerous similar trips to villages in the southeastern part of the country.
U.S. Special Operations forces
have been in Niger to train and
assist local troops in counterterrorism operations since at least
2005, and now number between
800 and 1,000. They are part of an
initiative begun after the September 2001 al-Qaeda attacks, and
expanded by the Obama administration, to train and assist government security forces in areas
around the world where militant
groups might use local unrest to
expand their influence.
The U.S. military, which does
not have authority for “direct
action” offensive operations in
the region, also provides logistics
and intelligence assistance to the
thousands-strong French force in
West Africa. France, the former
colonial power, deployed troops
to Mali in 2012, when Tuareg
tribesmen, who had launched a
rebellion against the central government, were themselves attacked by Islamist groups tied to
al-Qaeda affiliates in Libya.
That French mission later expanded to a more permanent
force, called Operation Barkhane,
in the Sahel, the arid sub-Saharan
region of Chad, Niger, Burkina
Faso, Mali and Mauritania. The
French are the only foreign force
with authorization to conduct direct actions and to cross borders
in the region, which also hosts a
U.N. peacekeeping force.
As they have spread in Libya,
following the 2011 NATO-backed
overthrow of Libyan leader
Moammar Gaddafi, both alQaeda and more recently the
Islamic State have sought adherents in the Sahel. They have found
willing followers among poor and
isolated
populations,
often
abused by local government and
military forces, and riven with
ethnic and tribal divisions.
Over the last two years, U.S.
and foreign officials have noted
the rise of at least three new
Mali-based Islamist groups, small
in numbers but increasingly active in cross-border operations in
the region. Officials believe that
one of them, the Islamic State in
the Greater Sahara, was responsible for the Oct. 4 ambush.
While it is believed to have no
more than 60 pledged fighters,
the Sahara group is frequently
supplemented by sympathetic
local villagers and temporary
alliances with other localized
groups. It is headed by Western
Sahara-born Adnan Abu Walid
al-Sahraoui, a veteran of an alQaeda affiliate that was part of
the 2012 violence in Mali. Although the Sahara group was
recognized by the Islamic State in
late 2016, officials do not believe
it receives much support beyond
recognition from the larger Middle East organization.

On eve of election rerun, Kenya teetering toward crisis
BY
K EVIN S IEFF
nairobi — Two months after
Kenya’s Supreme Court annulled
the country’s presidential election, a rescheduled vote slated for
Thursday holds major implications for East Africa’s largest economy and most important political
power broker.
But almost nothing has gone as
planned in the weeks leading up to
the election rerun, and with the
vote imminent, the list of uncertainties runs long. Kenya was once
seen as among the region’s most
stable nations, but this year’s election cycle has left it on the verge of
a political crisis.
The opposition leader, Raila
Odinga, has said he will not run
Thursday, alleging that the electoral commission is biased. The
commission’s chairman has suggested that the body is not prepared to hold a credible election,
and one of its members has fled to
the United States after reporting
that she received death threats.
On Wednesday, the Supreme
Court was set to rule on a request
for another delay, but remarkably
it was unable to convene enough
judges to issue a decision, a testament to the pressure facing the
judiciary as well as the dysfunction that has plagued every step of
the electoral process. The deputy
chief justice’s bodyguard was shot
and injured Tuesday, sending a
shock wave through the court.
“This potentially could have
been the election that consolidated Kenya as one of Africa’s most
vibrant democracies, and now
what you’ll have is an election
with no winners,” said Murithi
Mutiga, a researcher at the International Crisis Group.
In early September, Kenya’s Supreme Court ruled that an August
vote won by President Uhuru
Kenyatta had been marred by
irregularities. For the first time in
recent memory in Africa, a top
judicial body demanded a fresh
election. It also requested an overhaul of the electoral commission.
The surprise ruling was hailed

Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga speaks Tuesday in Machakos. He has urged his supporters to boycott Thursday’s election.
as evidence of Kenya’s judicial autonomy, but it precipitated two of
the most tumultuous months in
the country’s modern political history, inflicting a major blow on the
country’s economy as the currency fell and investors grew nervous.
The court’s decision has also deepened the tribal rift that defines
Kenyan politics, with Kenyatta’s
Kikuyu tribe and its political allies
pitted against Odinga’s Luo tribe.
Kenyatta accepted the court’s
decision but called the judges
“thugs.” Odinga rejoiced in the
ruling but a month later said he
was quitting the race because he
was not satisfied with the changes
to the electoral commission.
The court had outlined many
problems with the first iteration of
the election. Among them was
that roughly 10,000 paper forms
from polling stations, each containing the documentation of anywhere from dozens to hundreds of
votes, were missing when the results were announced.
Odinga hoped that by withdrawing from the race, he would
prompt the commission to delay
the vote, ostensibly giving it more
time to adopt new measures and
him more time to campaign. Political analysts have suggested that
he has run out of money.
But, puzzlingly, Odinga did not
sign the required form to withdraw his candidacy, so his name
was still printed on the ballots.
Odinga’s concerns about the
electoral process appeared to be
bolstered when the commission’s
chairman, Wafula Chebukati, said
his colleagues had failed to pass
sufficient changes. “I am convinced that without critical changes in the key secretariat staff, we
may not have a free, fair and credible election,” he said last week.
In a speech Wednesday, Odinga
told his supporters, “Do not participate in any way in the sham
election.” He suggested that his
party was going to transform into
a “resistance movement” and said
another Kenyatta term would be
an “electoral dictatorship.”
Odinga did not seem to encourage violent protests and instead
asked that people “hold vigil and
prayers away from polling stations.” But many of his followers,
particularly in western Kenya,
seemed intent on public protests
Thursday that would probably
lead to confrontations with police.
The European Union announced Tuesday that it would
reduce the size of its observer mission because of safety concerns.
The result could be an election
that Kenyatta wins easily but
leaves him with a victory seen as
illegitimate by a large portion of
the country. In August, Kenyatta
won 54 percent of the vote to
Odinga’s 44 percent.
Mutiga worries that a Kenyatta
victory in the absence of a competitive election could lead to a “slowburning crisis of legitimacy with a
significant portion of the population feeling that the government

camp survivors who have escaped
from North Korea.
Prisoners in the “re-education”
camps are forced to do hard labor
like mining in near-starvation
conditions. People deemed to
have committed serious economic crimes — making too
much money in the markets, for
instance — can end up in them, as
can those who have tried to escape from North Korea.
Horrific interrogations and
torture have been reported in
these camps as well as in those for
political prisoners, who have typically been convicted of demonstrating or speaking out against
the regime. Political prisoners are
sent for life, often with three
generations of their family accompanying them.
There are also short-term
forced-labor prisons for misdemeanors in the North Korean
system, where people might be
held for less than a year but also
in appalling conditions.
A U.N. Commission of Inquiry
concluded in 2014 that the prison
system amounted to a crime
against humanity. About 120,000
North Koreans are thought to be
held in the camps.
North Korea has repeatedly
refused to allow outside monitors, either from the United Nations or the International Committee of the Red Cross, to visit
the camps. But the satellite
images can go some way to
counteract the government’s attempts to keep the system secret.
The close-up photos reveal the
tell-tale identifying characteristics of prison camps: security
enclosures with gated high walls
and barbed-wire fences, guard
towers, dormitories, and workshops or mines located within or
near the prisons.
One of the oldest re-education
camps, No. 1 in Kaechon, north of
Pyongyang, is easily recognizable
as a large-scale penitentiary,
Hawk wrote.
Another prison, No. 4 on the
outskirts of the capital, has a
clearly visible limestone quarry
just outside the penitentiary
walls. There is a conveyor belt to
transport the limestone rocks
into the prison camp. Prisoners
were assigned to crush the rocks
while others loaded them into
large kilns, according to testimo-
ny Hawk collected.
As many as 6,000 prisoners,
including, 2,000 women, are
thought to be held in the Kaechon
camp and are forced to work
making leather goods such as
shoes and belts, a dangerous job
because of the toxicity of the glues
used.
“Prison hygiene was reportedly
appalling and food rations were
inadequate, leading to high rates
of death from malnutritionrelated illness, particularly for
those prisoners whose families
did not or could not bring them
food,” Hawk wrote.
This was standard for the prison camps, according to testimony
from former guards and former
detainees. The conditions were so
bad that many prisoners died.
“The brutal and arduous labor,
grossly inadequate diet, and lack
of medicine lead to a dreadfully
large number of deaths in detention,” the report says.

appeared to be building a new
forced labor prison camp near the

center of the country. Satellite

The brutal treatment meted
out to North Korea’s political
prisoners has been welldocumented, but a new report
coming out Thursday, based on
satellite images, portrays the extensive network of “re-education”
camps for less severe violations of
Pyongyang’s penal code.
These camps are situated
throughout the country, both on
the outskirts of cities and in huge
compounds in the mountains. Conditions are severe but
come with the possibility of release.
The camps are run not by the
secret police, who operate a separate system for political prisoners, but by the Ministry of Public
Security. They are an important
pillar of the regime of Kim Jong
Un, a means by which the North
Korean population is kept perma-
nently cowed.
The world is transfixed with
the nuclear threat from Kim’s
regime, but it is ordinary North
Koreans who suffer every day,
said Greg Scarlatoiu, executive
director of the Washington-based
Committee for Human Rights in
North Korea, which compiled the
report.
“It is more important than ever
to ensure that the fate of everyday
North Koreans trapped in the
unyielding gulag systems remains at the forefront of our
efforts and the efforts of the international community,” he said.
“A lot of the people in these
prisons are there for crimes that
would not be crimes in another
country,” said David Hawk, an
expert on the North Korean gulag
and the author of the new report.
Hawk married the satellite
photos to testimony he has been
collecting for years from prison
doesn’t represent them.”
In a statement Monday, 20
Western envoys expressed some
confidence in the commission,
known as the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission
(IEBC). “The IEBC has made
changes in personnel and procedures that address many of the
concerns raised and that strengthen its technical ability to conduct
an election,” they said.
Yet in a statement Wednesday,
the diplomats said the election
rerun is a pivotal moment: “Kenya
is at risk of losing much of what it
has gained since 2008 unless it
comes together at this crucial moment to preserve its democracy
and fundamental freedoms.”
Across Nairobi, supporters of
Kenyatta and Odinga considered
their roles in the country’s unpredictable election rerun. “We will
take to the streets,” said Samuel
Maina, an Odinga supporter living
in the Mathare slum on the outskirts of the city. “Let them kill us.
We will be there even with our
grandmothers.”
But some Odinga supporters
suggested they would avoid potentially dangerous protests that
will only cost them more economically. Already, business has slowed
across the country. “How will I
close my business to protest? Who
will pay me that day?” asked Lillian Ochieng, an Odinga supporter who owns a beauty shop in
Mathare. “Even if Uhuru wins, I
have to go on with my life.”
On the other side of Mathare,
where many Kenyatta supporters
live, the mood was more buoyant.
“Odinga isn’t accepting the
election because he has been defeated,” said Simon Njenga, who
owns a men’s clothing store.
But concern had crept in that if
Odinga does inspire huge protests
another period of uncertainty
could begin.
“It’s obvious there will be violence, and it’s hard not to be nervous when those who protest have
no fear of the police,” said Kevin
Kariuki, a university student.

enclosed area with clearly visible
security perimeters, guard barracks and positions, and checkpoints. There are two areas of
self-contained high-security areas within the encampment, as
well as mines.
Imagery suggests construction
of the camp began in 2006 or
2007.
The committee also published
an English translation of the
North Korean Criminal Code,
which was most recently revised
in 2012, the year after Kim took
power. It lays out how North
Koreans are denied basic human
rights and shows a system of
punishment “manifestly intended to keep the citizenry in line,”
the report said.
The code includes clauses under which a North Korean who,
“with anti-state purposes,” takes
part in a riot or demonstration
can be punished with a life sentence of “reform through labor”
or the death penalty. Anti-state
“propaganda and agitation” carries at least a five-year sentence,
but also carries the threat of
death.

RE
Chinese women sidelined as male cadres take center stage at party congress
WorldViews
beijing —
President Xi
Jinping this week
EMILY
heralded the
RAUHALA
dawn of a “New
Era” for China.
But, so far, the era offers little
new for Chinese women.
On Wednesday, after a week of
long-winded speeches and praise
for the president, the Chinese
Communist Party announced the
names of the cadres who will
lead China for the next five years.
At a ceremony at the Great
Hall of the People, on the
western edge of Tiananmen
Square, Xi, now seen as the most
powerful leader since Mao
Zedong and Deng Xiaoping,
marched across a stage with
members of the party’s highest
body, the Politburo Standing
Committee.
Enter Xi Jinping. Li Keqiang.
Li Zhanshu. Wang Yang. Wang
Huning. Zhao Leji. Han Zheng —
dudes, to the last.
Of the 25 members of the
Politburo, the second-highest
body, there is now one woman,
down from two. The party’s 204person Central Committee is
once again graced by 10 women.
Mao famously quipped that
“women hold up half the sky.”
More like 4.9 percent.
Should we be surprised by
this? Yes and no.
China, according to its own
constitution, is committed to
women’s rights. The country
prides itself on being a leader on
poverty alleviation, health and
education.
While Chinese women are, on
average, wealthier, more
educated and healthier than they
were before, experts say they are
losing ground relative to men,
with, for example, a widening
wage gap.
Gains in political
participation have not translated

Sun Chunlan, 67, is now the
only woman in China’s 25member Politburo.
to top leadership roles. In the
decades since the Communists
swept to power in 1949, no
woman has been named to the
party’s highest body. From 2012
to 2017 the Politburo had two
women — the highest since the
wives of two leaders were given
spots in 1969.
Xiong Jing, executive director
of Feminist Voices, a
nongovernmental organization
in Beijing, said this year’s
numbers were “outrageous,” but
“not surprising.”
“It has long been a problem
that the representation of
women in politics is low and,
unlike in other fields, we are not
seeing signs of improvement,”
she said.
Xiong said that more female
delegates would not necessarily
bring gender equality, but a
mostly male leadership is highly
unlikely to make it a priority.
“This is indeed a problem,” she
said.
Heading into his second fiveyear term, Xi’s record on women
is decidedly mixed.
In 2015, five Chinese feminists
were detained while planning a
peaceful act of protest to mark
International Women’s Day.
Months later, Xi delivered a
keynote speech at the U.N.
Women’s conference in New
York, vowing to “reaffirm our
commitment to gender equality
and women’s development.”
Maya Wang, a senior
researcher at Human Rights
Watch in Hong Kong, said there
are ways for the government to
do that. “The first thing the
Chinese government can do is to
pass a comprehensive antidiscrimination in employment
law, which should include a
comprehensive definition of
discrimination,” she said.
It must also “develop and
promote new policies that give
companies incentives to hire
more women,” she said.
If Xi plans to tackle women’s
rights over the next five years, he
did not really say so.
In his three-hour 20-minute
speech, the status of women
warranted only a couple of
cursory mentions. One section
briefly mentioned the need to
protect women and children. In
a section on party discipline, he
touched on the need to “cultivate
and select female cadres.” But he
did not mention why their
representation in top jobs is
down five years into his tenure.
And that’s the thing. China is
far from alone when it comes to
rule by men to the exclusion of
women. But if Xi is the allpowerful leader he claims to be,
and he actually wanted to
include women, women would
be there. Looking at the
numbers, it is safe to assume
that he does not.

China’s Xi Jinping granted another 5 years in power; no successor is named
BY
S IMON D ENYER
beijing — China’s Communist
Party unveiled its new leadership
lineup on Wednesday, granting
President Xi Jinping another five
years in power as general secretary and including no obvious successor in the senior-most ranks.
Xi introduced the six other
members of the Politburo Standing Committee to the media,
breaking with recent convention
by not including a potential heir
in the lineup.
That appears to raise the
chances Xi could stay in power
beyond 2022.
On Tuesday, the Communist
Party amended its constitution to
insert Xi Jinping Thought as a
guiding principle for the party,
elevating Xi to the same status as
its most important historical figures, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.
That means Xi is likely to wield
ultimate authority in the party as
long as he is alive, experts say, and
it makes any challenge to that
authority tantamount to an attack
on the party itself.
On Wednesday morning, Xi led
his six colleagues onto a stage in
one of the many rooms within the
Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
He first announced the party’s
Central Committee had voted to
give him five more years as general secretary that morning — saying he sees this as “not just an
approval of my work but encouragement to spur me on” — before
naming his colleagues in the top
leadership, all men in their 60s
dressed in dark suits.
Apart from Xi, the only other
member of the previous Standing
Committee to retain his seat was
Premier Li Keqiang, with the other five all newcomers replacing
retiring members.
None of the newcomers is
young enough to be a realistic
candidate for the top job at the
next Party Congress in five years’
time.
Among those stepping down
was a key Xi ally, the head of the
powerful anticorruption authority, Wang Qishan, who at 69 had
reached the normal retirement
age.
Xi, 64, and Li, 62, had both been
promoted to the Standing Committee in 2007 while still in their
early 50s, giving them five years’
experience to draw on before they
took the top two spots in the party
hierarchy in 2012.
This time around, there is no
such succession plan.
Guangdong party Secretary Hu
Chunhua, 54, and Chongqing party boss Chen Min’er, 57, had been
seen as possible contenders, but
neither made it to the Standing
Committee, both having to be content with a place at the next level
down, in the 25-member Politburo.
Another prominent figure, Sun
Zhengcai, was sensationally ousted this year, accused of corruption, removed from his post and
kicked out of the party.
“In a clear break with party
tradition, not a single one of his
potential heirs has joined the innermost leadership circle,” said
Matthias Stepan, a politics and
policy expert at the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) in Berlin. “This will fuel speculation that Xi plans to remain in
power beyond the next Party Congress in 2022.”
In the meantime, this leaves Xi
more powerful than ever, having
already overshadowed and undercut Li, whose role is mainly involved in the economy.
Third in seniority is Li Zhanshu, 67, who is seen as a close ally
of the president, serves as his chief
of staff and is expected to be appointed to run the rubber-stamp
parliament, the National People’s
Congress.
Then comes Wang Yang, 62,
who had a reputation for encouraging innovation and greener
growth while party boss in the
southern city of Guangdong.
Next is Wang Huning, also 62,
director of the party’s Central Policy Research Office. A former political scientist who worked on
ideology for two previous presidents, he has since become a close
ally of Xi and is thought to have
helped him develop his “Chinese
Dream” slogan.
Then comes Zhao Leji, 60, who
takes over as head of the anti-corruption agency, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection,
and finally Shanghai party boss
Han Zheng, 63.
Neither Wang Yang nor Zheng
is seen as a Xi crony, but both
would have had to work hard to
prove their loyalty to the president to have risen this far. Nevertheless, their appointments will
help broaden support for the leadership group within the broader
party.
“The status quo of coexistence
between Xi allies and various factions at the top level will remain in
place,” said Zhang Lifan, a party
historian. “However, we can see
that the factions are weakening,
and there aren’t any powerful figures from any of them.”
“Xi has assumed absolute authority,” he added.
Experts said the concentration
of power poses a risk for China,
making it harder for the Communist Party to change course when
necessary and also raising the possibility of a power vacuum should
Xi suddenly become ill or die.
Zhao Leji’s role running the anti-corruption agency puts him at
the center of efforts to maintain
discipline and loyalty within the
party. The youngest member of the
Standing Committee, he could be
a man to watch, with the potential
to play an important role beyond
2022, Stepan at MERICS said.
Party convention suggests any-
one age 68 or above at the Congress, which is held every five
years, should retire, meaning
none of the current Standing
Committee members are young
enough to be candidates for two
terms as general secretary and
president in 2022.
Xi ended the event by thanking
the media for covering the Party Congress, saying China didn’t
need “lavish praise from others”
but welcoming objective reporting and constructive suggestions.
Then he concluded with two
lines from an ancient poem about
a plum blossom in an ink painting, which “doesn’t need people to
praise its nice color, but only
wants to fill the universe with its
light fragrance.”
Yet in the hours that followed
the event, CNN, BBC and CNBC
faced intermittent blackouts in
China when discussing the new
leadership lineup.
Censorship has been significantly stepped up in China since
Xi took power.

McConnell allies declare
open warfare on Bannon
GOP FROM A1
candidates he will support. It will
also boost candidates with traditional GOP profiles and excoriate
those tied to Bannon, with plans to
spend millions and launch a heavy
social media presence in some
states.
The turbulence presents a danger to Republicans’ narrow 52seat majority in the Senate, with
seasoned GOP lawmakers deciding against seeking reelection
amid the political storm — and
with many GOP voters cheering
the rancor that Bannon has stoked
from his perch at his website, Breitbart.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), in an
emotional plea Tuesday, said that
he would not run in 2018, after
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) had
done the same in late September.
Both men, no longer accountable
to Republican primary voters,
have taken on higher-profile roles
as critics of the president, with
Corker calling for a “day care” to
step in and control him and Flake
calling Trump’s behavior “unacceptable.”
Some Republican lawmakers
have privately fretted that simply
speaking out against Trump’s incendiary statements or the
Bannon-aligned candidates that
are rousing anger in their states
will not be enough — and could
backfire — as they try to survive
the surge of grievance-driven politics that has gripped the GOP’s
base.
“It’s tough,” Flake told CNN on
Wednesday. “I’m competitive. I
like to fight these battles. But I also
knew that I couldn’t run the kind
of race that I would be proud of
and win in a Republican primary
at this time. The politics in that
way have changed.”
In the wake of Flake’s announcement, the SLF called Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward, Bannon’s pick to replace Flake, a “conspiracy theorist” and promised to
ensure her defeat.
In recent weeks, Bannon has
held court as dozens of candidates
have streamed through his Capitol
Hill townhouse, including Ward
last week, urging them to pledge to
vote against McConnell for majority leader. Mississippi state Sen.
Chris McDaniel (R) is close to
making a decision on a bid against
Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and
has won Bannon’s blessing, according to a person close to him.
Hedge fund executive Robert
Mercer and his daughter Rebekah
— Bannon’s wealthy allies — have
pledged millions to the cause, said
people briefed on their plans.
Bannon’s critics argue that he is
causing unnecessary internal divisions that could make it harder to
pass tax legislation — and to win
general elections next fall. They
also point to Sen. Luther Strange’s
defeat in last month’s Republican
primary in a special Senate election in Alabama as an example of a
dynamic they worry could repeat
itself across the next year if left
unchecked. The SLF spent more
than $10 million to help Strange.
Strange was endorsed by
Trump and McConnell but lost to a
former state judge, Roy Moore,
who had won the backing of Bannon and his orbit of allies. Moore is
now in a tight race with Democratic nominee Doug Jones.
“This is a guy who is more interested in seeing his name in the
headlines than he is in any kind of
accomplishment for the president,” said Josh Holmes, a former
chief of staff to McConnell who
has been increasingly outspoken
in his opposition to Bannon. “It
comes at great cost to the presi-
dent’s term, the Republican Party
and any hope they can have at
working as a team.”
On Wednesday, the SLF’s Twitter account mocked Danny Tarkanian — a frequent conservative
candidate in Nevada who is challenging Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.)
— for suggesting that Heller join
him in pledging to oppose McConnell as majority leader.
The tweets also turned the spotlight on Bannon.
The SLF tweeted a 2016 headline from the New York Daily News
— “Anti-Semitic Trump campaign
CEO Stephen Bannon not a big fan
of ‘whiny brat’ Jews, ex-wife says”
— with space for Tarkanian’s signature.
“Here’s another pledge for
@DannyTarkanian to sign,” the
PAC tweeted.
The Daily News reported last
year that in a 2007 court statement, Bannon’s former wife Mary
Louise Piccard said he didn’t want
their twin daughters attending a
school because too many Jews attended. “The biggest problem he
had with Archer [School for Girls
in Los Angeles] is the number of
Jews that attend,” Piccard said in
her statement, the newspaper reported.
Bannon’s spokeswoman Alexandra Preate told The Washington
Post last year that Bannon has
denied saying that and proudly
sent the girls to Archer. And after
seeing the SLF tweet to Tarkanian
on Wednesday, a Bannon confidant said, he responded to the
group’s social media blitz with
laughter — as he has to other
recent attacks on his character.
That attack was one of a number of swipes at Bannon that have
popped up as the former White
House adviser has emerged as a
player on the national political
scene. Holmes and others have
called him a “white supremacist.”
Holmes defended his use of the
term to describe Bannon in a recent interview. “If you look at his
associations, the people who are
ecstatic about his efforts, the long
history of conduct that he has
been a part of, I will let others
come to their conclusions,” he
said. “But this is not a guy that just
burst on the scene. Let’s not act
like everybody doesn’t know exactly who Steve Bannon is.”
Bannon has said repeatedly
that his nationalist, populist vision includes a place for all races,
sexual orientations and genders to
succeed.
“Do we need any further evidence than Mitch McConnell and
his cronies reducing themselves to
using left-wing talking points to
attack Steve? It’s pathetic to
watch,” said Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great America
Alliance super PAC and Bannon’s
former deputy at the White House.
The pro-Trump PAC is engaged in
a slew of races, sending around a
bus to rally activists, and counts
longtime operative Edward Rollins as its strategist. “Every poll
shows Mitch McConnell is an albatross on the Republican candidates,” Surabian said. “If McConnell truly cared about our Republican majority in the Senate more
than he cares about his own power, then he would step down as
Senate majority leader today.”
Bannon’s circle says the contents of his divorce proceedings,
along with claims of racism, are
unlikely to do new damage to his
reputation, since he has been targeted in the past along those same
lines by Democrats, and even in a
“Saturday Night Live” caricature
as an angel of death. Advisers also
note that the attacks elevate Bannon’s profile, which could help
carry his anti-establishment message.
In an email, SLF President Steven Law said he expects Bannon to
become a liability for any insurgent candidates he supports in
2018.
“But his real impact would be
felt in general elections, where
Bannon’s well-documented, toxic
views and alt-right paper trail
could become a liability for candidates who are perceived as closely
tied to him,” Law said.
According to public polling,
neither McConnell nor Bannon is
in good standing with voters. In an
April poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, one of few to ask
voters about Bannon, just 11 percent said they viewed him positively and 45 percent said they
viewed him negatively. The numbers were better among Republicans, with a nine-point favorability margin.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.),
one of the incumbents mentioned
as a possible target for Bannon in
2018, dismissed the effort to get
Senate Republicans to sign pledges vowing to oppose McConnell.
“No, I haven’t signed pledges. I
didn’t sign Grover Norquist’s
pledge,” Barrasso said on Wednesday, referring to the anti-tax advocate’s famous pledge. “I’m not a
guy that signs pledges, and I’m
going to vote for whoever I believe
is in the best interests of the people of Wyoming.”
The reasons for Flake’s decision
may be tied less to the national
environment surrounding the
feud between McConnell and Bannon and more about raw homestate politics. Reams of public and
private polling in recent months
have found Flake to be an unpopular incumbent, especially among
the Republican voters he would
need to win over in a primary fight
next year.
McConnell’s polling among Republicans has tumbled since the
start of the year — a fact that
Bannon has used to his advantage.
On Tuesday, Bannon’s Breitbart
website reported that a HarvardHarris poll found 56 percent of
Republicans in favor of dumping
McConnell as leader. That same
day, at a media roundtable organized by the conservative Heritage
Foundation, a reporter for Breitbart asked members of the House
Freedom Caucus to respond to the
poll number.
“It was that high?” scoffed Rep.
Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), wondering
jokingly about why it wasn’t even
higher.
As the two sides spar, Senate
Republicans are trying to demonstrate that the party’s agenda is
moving forward despite the infighting — and that relations with
the White House are smooth. On
Wednesday, a day after Flake
made his charged speech, Ivanka
Trump appeared with Republican
senators to pitch a child tax credit
that she has lobbied to include in
the upcoming tax legislation.
Still, GOP donors who are
friendly with McConnell welcomed the effort to thwart Bannon’s attempts to shape the 2018
contests and rattle McConnell as
Senate Republicans are trying to
work with Trump.
“Absolutely. Why not?” said Al
Hoffman, a major Republican donor and McConnell ally. “You’ve
got to get rid of the Bannon banner.”

Hepatitis A outbreak is byproduct of Calif. housing crunch
HOUSING FROM A1
“An epidemic like this in California — are you serious?” said
Timothy Berry, 48, who lives amid
the mattresses and tarps lined up
along 16th and Island streets outside God’s Extended Hand mission.
Berry lives below the brushedsteel apartment buildings that in
recent years have remade this
city’s downtown, on streets that
crews now power scrub with
bleach. Portable toilets and handwashing stations mark downtown
corners in the shadows of buildings where sea kayaks are visible
through the glass balconies of
$2,000-a-month studios.
The first of three large, citysanctioned tents opened earlier
this month to bring some of the
more than 9,000 homeless people
into sanitary conditions, at least
temporarily. A vaccination program that already has protected
more than 65,000 residents continues with guidance from the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, which has called this
outbreak the deadliest since it began tracking the disease in the
United States two decades ago.
But the long-term solution is
simple and elusive: constructing
more housing that those on the
streets, and the estimated
500,000 San Diego County residents living a missed paycheck
away from homelessness, can afford.
“At the heart of this homeless
crisis is a housing crisis,” said Jim
Vargas, a Roman Catholic deacon
who runs Father Joe’s Villages,
one of California’s largest providers of services to the homeless.
“Low vacancy rates and high rents
is a very toxic combination for our
population. Our clients don’t
stand a chance against that dynamic.”
Permanent housing
California often has limited development in its most desirable
areas, either through heavy regulation or popular referendum.
The practice has boosted property
values. But those without a foothold in the market have found it
increasingly difficult to find a
path in.
The state’s poverty rate has become the highest in the nation, a
direct result of housing costs that
statewide exceed twice the national average.
A long policy debate over how
to address homelessness has coalesced around “housing first,” an
approach that emphasizes getting
the homeless into permanent
housing as quickly as possible and
then treating the mental illness,
addiction and other issues that
often surround those living outside.
It is one of the few policy areas

tion people are feeling,” said Jonathan Herrera, the senior adviser
on homelessness to San Diego
Mayor Kevin Faulconer (R). He
spoke of the Los Angeles vote but
said such sentiments over the
state of the homeless and the condition of a recently remade downtown were rising in San Diego.
Herrera, who has been in the
job only a few months, said the
surge in homelessness is linked to
the state’s decision to redirect
affordable-housing money. A
count conducted in January
found that 9,116 people are homeless in San Diego County — the
fourth-highest population in the
nation — with more than half
living on the streets.
Faulconer, considered a possible Republican candidate for governor, has been sharply criticized
by homeless advocates and his
base within the San Diego business community. In recent weeks,
he has outlined more than
$100 million for affordable housing to be spent over the next several years. Nearly a dozen “surplus” city buildings also have been
identified for possible renovation
into low-income housing.
“San Diego is at a tipping point,
and the tipping point is: ‘What do
citizens here want the city to look
like?’ ” said Gordon Walker, chief
executive of the nonprofit Regional Task Force on the Homeless.
Walker came to San Diego from
Utah, where he oversaw a sharp
reduction in homelessness as the
state director of housing and community development. He is a blueblazer guy in a board-shorts town,
a former Reagan administration
official who points to Utah’s plentiful stock of affordable housing
and a government committed to
preserving it as reasons for the
success there.
“I look at this situation here as
the growing gap between the
haves and have-nots,” Walker said.
“This is where you need political
will. It’s political will that is need-
“At the heart of this homeless crisis
is a housing crisis.”
Jim Vargas, Roman Catholic deacon who runs Father Joe’s Villages
where California’s political leadership agrees with the Trump administration. Secretary Ben Carson’s Department of Housing and
Urban Development prioritizes
funding for permanent housing
projects. While this has proved
more effective than treating the
homeless in shelters or temporary
housing, the approach places an
even higher premium on available
housing stock that many California cities do not have.
Amid a state budget crisis six
years ago, Brown decided to steer
money once available to cities for
low-income housing construction
toward debt servicing and
schools. San Diego has lost an
estimated $200 million in affordable housing funds.
The result has been that little, if
any, affordable housing has been
built since then in cities that at the
same time have approved highend redevelopments, typified by
the apartment buildings with
names such as Urbana and Fahrenheit that line the streets around
Petco Park — home of the San
Diego Padres — a baseball stadium the city subsidized when it
was built 13 years ago.
State officials — and concerned
voters — are scrambling to make
up for lost time. Brown signed
legislation in September that will
place a $4 billion bond measure
on the ballot next year to finance
the construction of low-income
housing.
In Los Angeles, where more
than a dozen people have received
diagnoses of hepatitis A in the
past month, voters last year approved a $1.2 billion bond measure to build housing for the homeless. Such ballot initiatives often
fail to achieve the two-thirds majority needed for approval, but
this one exceeded it by 10 percentage points.
“It demonstrates the frustra-
ed to solve these social problems,
and the decisions are not easy.”
There is some good news in the
numbers here: San Diego is a Navy
town, and many of its homeless
people are military veterans. That
population declined in the past
year, in part because of federal
government programs directed at
homelessness among veterans.
The number of homeless families also declined slightly, but
there are unprecedented numbers of young people and chronically homeless people — defined
in part as people who have been
on the street for more than a year.
Vargas, of Father Joe’s Villages,
emerged from a rough South
Bronx to spend a career at Citicorp
and Copley Press before his ordination as a deacon a little more
than a decade ago.
The operation he runs is vast: a
collection of shelters and training
centers; retail stores that sell donated goods; medical and dental
clinics that care for his clients;
and a finance arm that is embarking on a private, $531 million endeavor to build low-income housing and turn the city’s fading motels into affordable apartments.
The shelters have a waiting list
of 200 people every night. The
length tends to discourage people
from even trying, he said, keeping
hundreds of homeless people
from getting close to help. Last
year, 20 children were born in the
agency’s housing and shelters.
“Why are they not with us?
Because the inn is full,” Vargas
said. “The inn is always full.”
On a warm recent evening, Michael McConnell, a volunteer advocate for the homeless, headed
south through “carmageddon,”
the boom city’s stop-and-go rush
hour traffic, toward City Heights,
where he was scheduled to lecture
a police advisory board on what he
calls the “criminalization of
homelessness.”

flying from the unfinished developments. The rents will be too
high for federal subsidies to fill
gaps, and landlords, regardless,
have too many potential clients to
take what many view as a risk on
once-homeless tenants.
McConnell is a small-business
owner turned civic activist, a dealer in gold and rare coins who is
self-taught in homelessness advocacy. The unruly inside of his Honda SUV signals that his first priority lies elsewhere: in seeking to
convince a frustrated city that the
homeless should not be punished
with fines and jail time for not
having homes, especially in a
white-hot real estate market.
“We cannot make homelessness disappear,” McConnell told
the advisory board, criticizing a
recent weeks-long campaign to
break up highway homeless encampments and past tactics such
as spreading sharp rocks beneath
highway underpasses to keep people from sleeping there.
Tension on the block
Along Island and 16th streets,
the night air is laced with the
smell of urine. A child plays tag
with his father against the mosaic
wall of the Extended Hand Mission, dodging scattered toys, a bicycle, the remnants of a handout
sandwich and other detritus of
street life and former lives.
Since the hepatitis A outbreak,
the charitable food deliveries have
grown more infrequent amid fear
of the contagious disease. The
hunger causes tension on the
block; one woman said that homeless people from outside their little enclave have become a threat.
“They have been coming by and
stealing your backpack, your
money,” said Jeanette Reynolds,
who has been living on the streets
of San Diego for nine years with
her partner, Ralph Bennett, a Marine Corps veteran. “It’s gotten
frightening now.”
For Donna Gaines, her place
here is new and, she hopes, temporary. A security guard who for a
dozen years lived in federally subsidized housing, Gaines was recently evicted from her building
after it failed to pass inspection.
She used to pay $1,075 a month
and has not been able to find
anything in that range since her
eviction.
Her home for the past few
months has been her dented
Hyundai Santa Fe, which she
shares with her dog, Brownie. She
parks near Reynolds and the
Humble Heart Thrift Store, hoping strength in numbers proves
true on the street.
“We watch over each other,”
Gaines said, waving down a passing group of volunteers ladling
soup. “But really it’s just me and
my dog. He’s the only thing keeping me going right now.”
After the cup-of-soup dinner,
Gaines drove south for her shift in
an Otay Mesa warehouse. Her
parking space outside the thrift
shop awaited her when the Hyundai again became her home.

Tillerson: Too many terrorist groups find a ‘safe place’ in Pakistan
BY
A NNIE G OWEN
new delhi — Secretary of State
Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that
“too many terrorist organizations” find refuge in Pakistan and
reiterated his call for the country
to do more to address a growing
problem of terrorism within its
borders that, he said, threatens to
destabilize Pakistan itself.
“There are too many terrorist
organizations that find a safe
place in Pakistan from which to
conduct their operations and attacks against other countries,” Tillerson said, speaking in India’s
capital on the final stop of a tour
through the Middle East and
South Asia. The extremist groups’
growing strength and capability
“can lead to a threat to Pakistan’s
own stability,” he said.
At a news conference at India’s
Ministry of External Affairs, Tillerson said that in a meeting Tuesday with Pakistan’s interim prime
minister, its army chief and other
leaders in Islamabad, he had outlined “certain expectations” of
“mechanisms of cooperation” that
Pakistan must fulfill to address the
problem or face U.S. reprisals. Pakistan’s government has long denied the existence of havens for
terrorist groups.
Later, Tillerson met with Prime
Minister Narendra Modi. The two
discussed terrorism and regional
security, the ministry said.
Pakistan has been mired in political turmoil since Prime Minis-
ter Nawaz Sharif was ousted by the
country’s Supreme Court in a financial scandal in July. His close
ally, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, is
serving as interim prime minister.
Tillerson’s arrival in India — his
first trip to the country as secretary of state — comes at a time
when the U.S.-Pakistan relationship is increasingly under strain
and the Trump administration
seeks a closer relationship with
“natural ally” India, the world’s
most populous democracy and
one of the United States’ biggest
arms buyers.
The warm welcome for Tillerson in India — where he toured a
memorial to Mohandas Gandhi,
the revered leader of the country’s
independence movement — was a
contrast to the chilly reception he
had received in Pakistan’s capital
the day before. There, one prominent politician said Tillerson was
“acting like a viceroy,” a reference
to leaders of the British Raj.
India’s minister of external af-
OCTOBER 26 , 2017
fairs, Sushma Swaraj, echoed Tillerson’s criticism of Pakistan. Recent terrorist attacks in Afghanistan “are proof that safe havens
and supporters of terrorism are
active,” she said. “Pakistan needs
to act on this.”
Swaraj also said that she and
Tillerson discussed India’s relationship with North Korea. India
maintains an embassy in Pyongyang but has moved to put new
limits on bilateral trade. Swaraj
said she told Tillerson that the
embassy should remain “so that
some channels of communication
are kept open.”

Congress votes to block rule against arbitration clauses
BY
AND
R ENAE M ERLE
T ORY N EWMYER
To secure a rare legislative victory this week, Senate Republicans turned to a strategy that has
paid off for them in the recent
past: killing policy rather than
writing it.
This time, Republicans took
aim at a regulation giving U.S.
consumers more flexibility to sue
their banks and other financial
institutions. The rule is widely
loathed by the business community and conservative lawmakers,
many of whom opposed the creation of the agency that wrote it,
the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
So Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho)
turned to an arcane legislative
tool — 1996’s Congressional Review Act. The law gives legislators
a limited time to block a new
regulation before it goes into effect. Lawmakers have used the
measure more than a dozen times
already to roll back rules issued at
the end of the Obama administration, often at the urging of the
Trump administration, which has
pushed to eliminate regulations it
says are stifling economic growth.
Late Tuesday, the Senate used it
again, approving Crapo’s measure
blocking the CFPB’s rule and
sending the matter to President
Trump, who is expected to sign it.
Trump “applauds” the legislation’s passage, according to a
White House statement.
The vote was the biggest victory yet for the banking industry
during the Trump administration. After years of suffering un-
der tough regulations imposed
after the global financial crisis,
bankers had been giddy at the
prospect of a regulatory reprieve.
But many of those efforts stalled
in the Senate, which has not taken
up some of the more complex
regulatory changes the industry
has favored.
Blocking the CFPB rule is likely
to embolden the agency’s critics,
but it is not likely to speed other,
more complicated, regulatory
rollbacks, industry analysts say.
“The country is still too populist and too distrustful of big
banks,” Jaret Seiberg, a Cowen
Washington Research Group financial services analyst, said in a
report Wednesday.
Even this legislative victory
proved tricky for Republicans.
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.)
emerged as an early “no” vote,
leaving the party with little wiggle
room. To win passage without
Democrat support, the GOP could
lose no more than two votes from
members of its party.
At issue was the fine print in
many of the agreements that consumers sign when they apply for
credit cards or bank accounts.
These contracts typically require
consumers to settle any disputes
they have with the company
through arbitration, in which a
third party rules on the matter,
rather than going to court or
joining a class-action lawsuit.
The 2010 financial reform law,
known as the Dodd-Frank Act,
called on the CFPB to study the
use of mandatory arbitration
clauses. After five years, the agency moved to ban such clauses,

Chair Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) led
the effort to block the rule
against mandatory arbitration.
potentially allowing millions of
Americans to file or join a lawsuit
to press their complaints.
The measure was widely disliked by banks and among many
Republicans in Congress, who
called it a gift to plaintiffs’ attorneys. Critics argued that the rule
would trigger a flood of frivolous
lawsuits and drive up credit card
rates. Arbitration, they argued,
was a faster, cheaper way to settle
disputes.
The House passed legislation
to block the rule’s implementation in July, but in the Senate the
measure appeared to languish.
Fearing that lawmakers might
not meet an early-November
deadline to block the rule, the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce and several other business groups filed
suit against the CFPB last month.
Complicating Republican efforts was the growing unpopularity of Wells Fargo and Equifax.
Wells Fargo has been under pressure since admitting last year that
employees had opened millions of
sham accounts that its customers
did not ask for, and Equifax is
struggling to recover from a massive hack that potentially exposed
the data of more than 145 million
people.
Democrats and consumer
groups, who had been mobilizing
to defeat the bill for months, used
the corporate missteps as a rallying cry against arbitration clauses. Crapo, the chair of the Senate
Banking Committee, acknowledged to reporters that the Equifax breach had become “an issue”
in securing enough votes to repeal
the rule.
“It didn’t help,” said one financial services lobbyist working the
issue, who spoke on the condition
of anonymity to discuss behindthe-scenes concerns. “It detracted
from the underlying principle of
why arbitration is important.”
Amanda Werner, arbitration
campaign manager for Public Citizen and Americans for Financial
Reform, began showing up at congressional hearings dressed as a
Monopoly board game character,
with a black top hat and bushy
white mustache. The images
made their way online — and onto
late-night TV.
“It went completely viral, out of
control,” said Werner, who has
been working on the issue for two
years.
Consumer advocates also
launched a “five-figure” digital
campaign targeting states where
Republican lawmakers remained
uncommitted on the issue, including Arizona (Sen. John McCain) and Alaska (Sen. Lisa Mur-
kowski.)
Meanwhile, Republicans and
the banking industry were mobilizing, too. Credit unions and
community banks began to weigh
in against the CFPB rule. While
repeatedly apologizing for their
companies’ misdeeds, Wells Fargo and Equifax executives refused
to back away from their use of
arbitration clauses in their contracts. Pressed to disavow mandatory arbitration during a Senate
committee hearing this month,
Wells Fargo chief executive Tim
Sloan said, “No, I won’t, senator.”
The rule also faced unusual
resistance from other banking
regulators. The Office of the
Comptroller of the Currency
asked the CFPB to halt the rule,
arguing that it was not well
thought out and would raise costs
for consumers. It is not uncommon for regulators to disagree,
but those clashes typically don’t
spill into public view.
This week, as both sides began
to prepare for a final Senate showdown, the Treasury Department
took the unusual step of criticizing the CFPB’s work, issuing an
18-page report that argued that
the arbitration rule “would upend
a century of federal policy favoring freedom of contract to provide
for low-cost dispute resolution.”
The criticism from regulators
gave Republicans more ammunition to call for the rule’s repeal,
industry analysts said.
By Tuesday evening, it appeared Republicans had secured
enough support to move forward
with a vote. Graham, as expected,
sided with Democrats against the
Carlyle Group founders
are passing the reins
to the next generation
BY
T HOMAS H EATH
The three co-founders of the
Carlyle Group, who helped turn
private equity from an idea
hatched in a New York City hotel
into a trillion-dollar finance industry, are stepping back from
day-to-day management of the
publicly traded firm and promoting the next generation.
Carlyle Chairman Daniel A.
D’Aniello, 71, will become chairman emeritus, and co-chief executives David M. Rubenstein and
William E. Conway Jr., both 68,
will become co-executive chairmen of the board.
Kewsong Lee, 52, and Glenn A.
Youngkin, 50, will replace
Rubenstein and Conway as cochief executives, and Peter J.
Clare, 52, will become co-chief
investment officer alongside
Conway. All three will join the
firm’s board of directors.
The phaseout represents a
coming generational change in
the private-equity industry as
well as Washington-based Carlyle itself. The firm, which began
by buying and selling defense
companies, is now an international player in finance.
It manages $170 billion in
investments from pension funds,
unions, wealthy people and
countries across the planet.
Carlyle is the first of the “Big
Three” publicly traded privateequity firms — the other two are
KKR & Co. and Blackstone Group
— to see its founders pass the
reins to successors.
“These promotions ensure
continuity in our leadership and
maintain the investment processes that have driven our success for 30 years,” Carlyle said in
a statement.
None of the three co-founders,
each of whom is a billionaire
thanks to his shares in the company, is selling his stock, according to the company.
Carlyle is making the changes
during a period of relative calm
following several missteps for
the firm. Carlyle exited the
hedge- fund business earlier this
year after the implosion of two
funds it had acquired.
Last month, a judge ruled in
favor of Carlyle in a lawsuit
claiming the firm did not do
enough to save a mortgage-bond
fund based in Guernsey that
collapsed in March 2008. Inves-
measure, as did Sen. John Neely
Kennedy (R-La.), leaving the vote
at 50 to 50 about 10 p.m. Vice
President Pence cast the deciding
vote.
The battle over the rule has laid
bare lingering division between
the CFPB and the White House.
Under the Trump administration, many agencies have begun
taking steps to roll back or at least
slow regulations. But the CFPB, a
watchdog agency established after the global financial crisis and
still led by an Obama-era appointee, has continued to draw the ire
of business groups with its aggressive tactics.
The debate has often taken an
unusually personal tone. After the
Senate voted to overturn the rule,
CFPB Director Richard Cordray
said in a statement that “Wall
Street won and ordinary people
lost.”
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a
co-sponsor of the Senate repeal
legislation, fired back at Cordray,
whom many expect to run for
governor of Ohio next year.
“The unelected Mr. Cordray issued yet another stupid regulation that would have hurt consumers, the people’s democratically elected representatives voted to stop the regulation, and
now Mr. Cordray whines that
Congress stopped his stupid regulation,” Cotton said in a statement. “It’s well past time for Mr.
Cordray to resign and begin his
long-expected losing campaign
for Governor of Ohio. If he won’t,
President Trump should fire him.”

who joined the firm more than
four years ago. He has helped
drive Carlyle’s investment activities, fundraising and management. Lee will work closely with
Youngkin on the company’s long-
term business strategy.
Carlyle is named for the Carlyle Hotel in New York City,
where the founders first formulated plans in 1987 and recruited
investors, including Pittsburgh’s

the company was known for
stacking its ranks with political
heavyweights like former secretary of state James Baker and
former secretary of defense
Frank Carlucci.
The firm’s primary and most
profitable line has been its flagship buyout fund, which has
produced an 18 percent annual
return, net of all fees. Its business is buying companies, making them more efficient, then
selling them at a profit for
Carlyle and for investors in its
funds.
At one time or another it had
been in the business of doughnuts (Dunkin’ Donuts), rental
cars (Hertz), airplane wings, automobile parts, music (Beats
Electronics) and women’s lingerie (Brazil-based Scalina). It
has owned New York City skyscrapers and a Philadelphia oil
refinery that is still part of the
Carlyle portfolio.

OxyContin maker
faces federal inquiry
New-home sales hit
10-year high last month
Federal prosecutors in
Connecticut have begun a
criminal investigation into
Purdue Pharma’s marketing of
the opioid painkiller OxyContin.
U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly is
looking into Purdue’s claim that
OxyContin provides 12 hours of
pain relief. Last year, a Los
Angeles Times investigation
found that Purdue ignored
evidence that the drug’s effects
failed to last that long in some
patients, increasing the risk of
withdrawal and addiction.
“Purdue is committed to being
part of the solution to our
nation’s opioid crisis and has
been cooperating with the U.S.
Attorney’s investigation,”
company spokesman Robert
Josephson said in an email.
Purdue is cast as the main
villain in a wave of government
lawsuits seeking to hold opioid
makers and distributors
responsible for an epidemic that
kills thousands of people and
costs the U.S. economy billions of
dollars a year.
Sales of new U.S. homes
jumped last month to the highest
level since October 2007, a sign
that Americans — facing a
shortage of existing homes — are
turning to new construction.
New-home sales leapt 18.9
percent in September to a
seasonally adjusted annual rate
of 667,000, the most in a decade,
the Commerce Department said
Tuesday.
Sales rose in all regions of the
country, including the South,
where they jumped nearly 26
percent.
The government said it
couldn’t estimate what impact, if
any, last month’s hurricanes had
on the data. But the measure of
new-home sales is based on
contract signings, so the number
was probably lifted by those
looking to replace homes
damaged by Harvey and Irma.
Sales of new homes jumped 33
percent in the Northeast and
nearly 11 percent in the Midwest.
Sales in the West ticked up 3
percent.

GOP tax leaders might split with Trump on changing retirement accounts
D AMIAN P ALETTA,
M IKE D E B ONIS
AND T ORY N EWMYER
BY
President Trump and Republican leaders in Congress publicly
argued over major provisions of
their upcoming tax legislation on
Wednesday, a day before the
House of Representatives was
scheduled to take a critical vote to
move the effort forward.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady
(R-Tex.) on Wednesday suggested
that his upcoming tax bill could
force changes to 401(k) plans and
other retirement accounts, a
move that would buck a promise
from Trump that those accounts
would be left alone.
“We think in tax reform we can
create incentives for people to
save more and save sooner,” Brady said at a breakfast hosted by
the Christian Science Monitor.
Brady, who’s expected to introduce a tax bill next week, said that
many people who have tax-incentivized retirement accounts contribute $200 per month or less, a
level he thought was too low.
“We think we can do better,”
Brady said, who said he was
working closely with Trump on
the issue. “We are continuing
discussions with the president,
all focused on saving more and
saving sooner.”
Trump on Monday pledged the
Republican tax effort would not
change the rules for the 401(k)
accounts.
“There will be NO change to
your 401(k). This has always been
a great and popular middle class
tax break that works, and it
stays!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump reiterated his stance
Wednesday, after Brady’s comments, praising Brady’s work on
taxes but saying it was unwise to
consider changes to the retirement accounts.
Brady wouldn’t go into any
details about how he planned to
“We think in tax reform
we can create incentives
for people to save more
and save sooner.”
House Ways and Means Committee
Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tex.)
change incentives to encourage
more savings. Rather, he suggested that the current construct of
401(k) accounts and Individual
Retirement Accounts was not
working well.
These types of accounts allow
people to contribute up to
$18,000 a year pretax as a way to
incentivize saving for retirement.
Lowering the tax-free threshold
could raise more revenue, but it
could also rankle voters. In 2015,
more than 50 million Americans
had active 401(k) accounts.
On Wednesday, Senate Finance
Committee Chairman Orrin G.
Hatch (R-Utah) said he was open
to possible changes on the tax
code’s treatment of retirement
accounts, despite Trump’s pledge.
“I’m open to look at anything,”
Hatch said Wednesday morning.
“I don’t have any problem looking
at everything.”
Hatch also said he doesn’t feel
pressure to change the Senate’s
eventual tax bill because of pressure from the White House.
Trump “has his point of view,
and he may prove to be right in
the end,” he said. “We’ll just have
to see. But I’m open-minded
about it.”
Hatch said he hasn’t spoken
with Trump about the 401(k)
issue since the president sent his
directive about it Monday morning.
Hatch is the top tax writer in
the Senate, and he and Brady
have outsized influence over how
the tax legislation comes together.
Rep. David Schweikert (RAriz.) suggested Congress, rather
than Trump, should lead the effort to draft tax legislation.
“The problem is the issue’s a lot
more complicated,” said “We’re
the ones writing the bill. At some
point he gets to agree or veto.
Ultimately we have to make the
math work.”
Congressional
Republicans
have their own divides on taxes.
On Wednesday, House Republican leaders scrambled to keep the
tax effort on schedule, working to
win over members who have
balked at a proposal to ditch an
income tax deduction that particularly benefits their home states.
The House is scheduled to cast
a critical vote Thursday on a
budget measure that would set
out key parameters for the tax bill
and pave the way for Republicans
to pass it without Democratic
cooperation.
Some House Republicans on
Wednesday threatened to vote
against the budget because of
concerns that the eventual tax
bill would eliminate or limit the
existing deduction for state and
local taxes, also known as “SALT.”
Lawmakers from states with
high state and local taxes are
balking at the proposed change,
arguing it would hike tax bills for
their middle-class constituents.
Four Republicans, all from either
New York and New Jersey, told
The Washington Post they intended to vote against the bill
unless a deal on SALT is reached.
“Unless I get more concrete
information on a reasonable
agreement, then I will be a no on
Thursday,” said Rep. Lee Zeldin
(R-N.Y.).
Brady on Wednesday evening
said GOP leaders will “take our
time with those members, because we want to see people keep
more of their earnings, regardless
of where they live, including in
high-tax states.” He said he is
confident Republicans have the
support necessary to pass their
spending blueprint, “because this
budget vote is about allowing
pro-growth tax reform to occur. It
isn’t the tax bill.”
House GOP leaders are planning to huddle with the bluestate Republicans on the issue
following the budget vote Thursday, a member of the leadership
said.
Amid Republican divisions,
Democrats pounced, particularly
on the possibility of changes to
the retirement savings benefits.
“They cannot keep their hands
off your 401(k),” said Sen. Ron
Wyden (D-Ore.). “They can’t help
themselves, and you bet we are
going to take this to the mat. And
they have clearly reopened once
again this question of rolling
back fundamental retirement
protections for working-class
people.”
Brady is planning to introduce
his tax bill next week, which
Republicans hope will lead to the
most sweeping changes to the tax
code in more than 30 years. But
almost all the key details of the
bill remain a mystery. Again and
again on Wednesday, Brady said
the most pressing decisions have
not been reached.
He said he hasn’t decided what
income levels would merit certain tax rates or how many tax
deductions to eliminate to partially offset the lower rates. He
said he hasn’t decided whether to
impose a top tax rate for the
wealthiest Americans or whether
the tax cuts would be retroactive
to income earned in 2017.
“In about a week, you will be
able to see the reforms proposed
and where we are heading with
it,” Brady said. He said he couldn’t
guarantee that every American
would see their taxes go down
because of the changes, but he
could “guarantee that every
American will be better off because of a simpler tax code that
lowers those rates and improves
their paychecks.”
House Republicans are hopeful that Brady will be able to pass
his bill by the end of November,
moving the process over to the
Senate. Brady said adjustments
to his bill will probably be made
continuously to build support.
Even though many details remain unresolved, the White
House and GOP leaders are aiming to write tax bills that meet
several key targets. They want to
lower the top corporate tax rate
from 35 percent to 20 percent,
collapse the number of income
brackets paid by families and
individuals from seven to three,
and eliminate the estate tax and
the alternative minimum tax.
Democrats and a number of
budget experts have said the GOP
tax plan would predominantly
benefit the wealthiest Americans,
with some taxes actually going up
on the middle class and uppermiddle class. Brady dismissed
these concerns, telling people to
study the bill he introduces.

With new leader, NAACP charts more aggressive stance
BY
T RACY J AN
The NAACP said Wednesday
that it is embarking on a broad
new strategy for the more racially
charged President Trump era and
would take a more muscular approach to calling out discrimination by corporate America.
The move follows Tuesday’s
unusual warning to African
Americans that they could face
discrimination if they fly on
American Airlines, and it comes
only days after the civil rights
organization named longtime
Mississippi activist Derrick Johnson as its new president and chief
executive.
“As we look at some of the
shifts our country has made with
the election of Donald Trump,
we’re looking to improve our ability to be more effective given the
realities of our country today,”
said Hilary Shelton, director of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People’s
Washington bureau and senior
vice president for advocacy and
policy, in an interview Wednesday. “We have to adjust our approach accordingly.”
The new NAACP strategies include calling out corporations
when a pattern of discrimination
emerges, such as this week’s
“travel advisory” for American
Airlines, Shelton said. The warning was “not a boycott,” he said.
The organization will also
place a renewed emphasis on
fundraising and is seeking to
change its tax status to free the
NAACP to be more outspoken on
political issues.
Johnson, who began serving as
interim leader in July, was traveling to Los Angeles on Wednesday
on a cross-country listening tour
and was unavailable for comment.
Johnson announced last weekend that the organization would
change its tax status from a
501(c)3 charity to a 501(c)4 social
welfare group to allow it to actively engage in political lobbying
and promote candidates in local
and congressional races next
year.
The NAACP decided to issue

Airlines pilot of racial discrimination after she and another woman were kicked off a flight after complaining about a seating change.
the American Airlines warning,
only the second such action in its
108-year history, after receiving
complaints of mistreatment from
black passengers.
Shelton said the travel advisory was simply a first step in
getting the airline’s attention because the company had not addressed the customers’ complaints.
The advisory, issued Tuesday
night, was accompanied by a letter to American Airlines requesting a meeting to discuss strategies to prevent such incidents in
the future.
“We want people of color to
know that we are seeing a pattern
of discrimination so they are able
to be informed and decide whether they want to subject themselves to that,” Shelton said.
The airline responded within
24 hours with a public letter to its
employees.
“We were disappointed to
learn of a travel advisory issued
by the NAACP regarding American Airlines. The mission statement of the NAACP states that it
‘seeks to remove all barriers of
racial discrimination.’ That’s a
mission that the people of American Airlines endorse and facilitate every day — we do not and
will not tolerate discrimination of
any kind,” wrote Doug Parker, the
airline’s chairman and chief executive.
Shelton said a “high-level
American Airlines executive” also
reached out to the NAACP on
Wednesday to schedule a meeting. He said that the NAACP has
received at least three anonymous calls from American Airlines employees “recognizing the
problem of discrimination and
the lack of response and concern
by the company.”
The NAACP cited four recent
cases involving American Airlines. In one, an African American man said he was forced to
give up his seat on a flight from
Washington, D.C., to RaleighDurham after he responded to
discriminatory comments hurled
at him from two white passen-
gers. An African American woman said she was removed from a
Miami-to-New York flight after
she complained to a gate agent
about having her seat changed
without her consent.
The NAACP issued its first travel warning in August for the state
of Missouri. Johnson had warned
African Americans to exercise
“extreme caution” when traveling
through the state because blacks
in Missouri were 75 percent more
likely to be stopped and searched
by police officers than whites.
The Missouri advisory was
controversial
even
among
NAACP members. A local St. Louis branch wanted its state and
national counterparts to revoke
the warning because it could
harm members who work in the
hospitality industry if organizations stop holding conventions
and other events in the state.
The NAACP issued boycotts
more frequently in the 1970s but
has become more reluctant to do
so in recent decades, Shelton said.
Shelton said the NAACP last
called a boycott against the state
of South Carolina in 2000 because state legislators refused to
remove the Confederate flag from
state capitol grounds. The boycott, also observed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association
and United Auto Workers, ended
in 2015 after the state’s legislature
voted to remove the Confederate
flag, after the killing of nine black
parishioners by a white supremacist in a Charleston church.
Former NAACP president Ben
Jealous, who is running for Maryland governor, told The Washington Post that the recent travel
advisories hark back to the organization’s roots of “drawing attention to the plight of individuals but to also curtail a larger
injustice.”
“Thurgood Marshall would be
in Mississippi defending an individual but also indicting an entire
system,” Jealous said. “Unfortunately, that type of work is still
necessary, and wake-up calls
count.”
He said the “wake-up call” to
American Airlines could be more
effective than a lawsuit.
“It allows you to accelerate the
conversation without having to
incur the added expense and deliberation of litigation,” Jealous
said.
“This is reflective of the fact
that we once again have an organizer running the NAACP,” he
said, referring to Johnson’s extensive background as an activist.
Malkia Cyril, a Black Lives Matter activist in Oakland, Calif.,
praised the new approach.
“For the NAACP to more vocally expand its portfolio of issues to
include corporate accountability
is an amazing step for black
communities in this country,” she
said.

New iPhone may be di∞cult to obtain
BY
H AYLEY T SUKAYAMA
If you’re planning on getting an
iPhone X in time for the holidays,
you may have a harder time getting your hands on one than
usual, according to analysts.
Several Apple analysts have
said that the number of people
who want an iPhone X will far
outstrip the number of phones
available at launch — and even
well into 2018. Daniel Ives of GBH
Insights said this week that he
thinks it could be April or even
May before the balance between
supply and demand settles and
people will be able to simply walk
into a store and buy one.
“Based on our analysis, survey
work, and pent up demand we
believe preorder demand could
top 40 million units of iPhone X
roughly ‘doubling’ current supply,” Ives said in a note to inves-
tors this week.
The potential for a longer wait,
analysts say, is the result of how
complicated the iPhone X is to
make. Between the new type of
screen and the new facial recognition sensors, Apple must deal
with a different set of components than it normally does.
The imbalance between supply
and demand is expected to be
pretty large: Analyst Ming-Chi
Kuo of KGI Securities predicts
that Apple will have 2 million or
3 million phones ready when the
product hits stores Nov. 3.
In its holiday quarter in 2016,
Apple sold 74.5 million iPhones,
but keep in mind that there was
no iPhone X-like phone last year
and that the iPhone 7 was considered a modest seller because of its
more-incremental upgrades.
Demand for the iPhone X is
thanks to the phone’s advanced
facial recognition capabilities, a
new type of screen and a new
depth-sensing
camera.
The
phone will also be able to use the
facial recognition technology for
payments. Other features include
wireless charging, which is also
available on the iPhone 8 and
iPhone 8 Plus, and the addition of
Apple’s portrait mode to the
front-facing camera. (That means
better selfies, of course.)
The anticipation for the iPhone
X, which will start at $999, has
softened sales of the iPhone 8 and
iPhone 8 Plus as customers wait to
compare the models — a trend
analysts started noting after those
phones launched last month. A
September-October survey from
451 Research found that 69 percent of consumers were interested
in buying an iPhone in the next 90
days — the highest the firm has
recorded since Apple redesigned

Apple chief executive Tim Cook introduces the iPhone X on Sept. 12. With advanced facial recognition
capabilities and a new type of screen and camera, demand for the device is expected to exceed supply.
the iPhone 6 in 2014 to have a
larger screen.
The iPhone X opens for online
preorder on Friday at 3:01 a.m.
Eastern time and will be sold in
stores a week later. If you want to
land an iPhone X in time for the
holidays, it’s best to try to get in
on the first rush of orders. In
other words, plan your shopping
a bit earlier than you would in
other years — at least if you want
to avoid wrapping an IOU instead
of an iPhone X.

Defining ‘middle class’ can be tough
There’s a
prolonged pause
when I ask Lyft
HEATHER
driver Gaby
LONG
Osegueda if her
family is middle
class. Her smile fades as she
thinks about it for a while.
“Yeah, I think so. I don’t even
know what the middle class is
anymore,” says Osegueda, who,
with her husband, earns nearly
$100,000 a year in the San
Francisco area.
The majority of Americans —
62 percent — identify as “middle
class,” according to a Gallup poll
conducted in June. It’s the
highest percentage of people
feeling that way since 2003. But a
lot of Americans are like
Osegueda: They feel middle class,
but they aren’t sure what it
means.
Just who exactly is middle class
is in the national spotlight again
as President Trump and
Republicans in Congress craft tax
cuts for individuals and
corporations that they say will
primarily benefit the middle.
Vice President Pence called the
plan, which is still being fleshed
out, a “middle-class miracle” this
week. But amid this discussion,
the middle class has been defined
in different ways. Gary Cohn,
Trump’s top economic adviser,
recently discussed how a “typical
Wonkblog
family” making $100,000 a year
would benefit. Trump has
espoused the value of the plan to
truckers, who make around
$41,000 a year.
So what is the middle class? In
America, an income of $59,000 a
year is smack dab in the middle,
according to the U.S. Census
Bureau.. But it’s not that simple.
There is no exact definition of
middle class, and a deep look at
the data shows a wide variety of
individuals could be part of it,
depending on where they live and
how big their family is. The
middle class in San Francisco,
where Osegueda lives, is not the
same as it is in Peoria, Ill.
Osegueda and her husband are
in their early 30s. Both have
college degrees — she also has a
master’s — and launched careers
in San Francisco’s booming tech
industry. She worked in human
resources, and he’s an engineer.
They love San Francisco, but a
year ago, they moved to Pacifica, a
suburb, where rent is more
affordable and their young son
has space to play. Despite making
nearly $100,000 a year, they
aren’t sure they’ll ever own a
home, at least not anywhere in
the Bay Area.
Here’s how median income
varies by family size. The median
income for single people in
America is just $30,400. For a
household of two, it jumps to
$65,600. For three, it’s nearly
$77,000. For four, it’s $91,000. You
get the idea. The more people in a
family, the more money they
typically need to live a
comfortable middle-class
lifestyle.
When Americans talk about
the “middle class,” they are
usually thinking about a range,
not just the specific income dead
in the middle. The Pew Research
Center says the middle class runs
from $42,000 to $125,000. It
defines middle as a household of
three with an income that falls
between two-thirds and double
the median income. By Pew’s
calculation, just over half of U.S.
households are truly middle class,
less than the 62 percent who selfidentify that way.
To dig further into the data,
The Washington Post opted to
define middle class as American
households with incomes that fall
between the 30th percentile mark
and the 80th percentile mark. It
captures half of U.S. households,
but the range is skewed high
enough so that someone would
have to be well above the poverty
line and earn at least $16 an hour
in a full-time job to qualify.
America’s middle-class ranges
from $35,000 to $122,500 in
annual income, according to The
Post’s calculation. (The data is in

2016 dollars. The chart to the
right shows how much the range
varies by household size.) Rakesh
Kochhar, associate director of
research at Pew, calls it a “fair”
estimate. He helped craft Pew’s
definition.
The bottom line is: $100,000 is
on the middle-class spectrum, but
barely. Seventy-five percent of
U.S. households make less than
that.
In Beattyville, Ky., a place
dubbed “America’s poorest white
town,” median income is only
$16,000 and a typical home costs
only $53,000. Deep poverty also
exists on many Indian
reservations, such as the one in
Blackwater, Ariz., where the
median income is just $18,000.
On the other end of the
spectrum are rapidly developing
cities such as the San Francisco
area, where Osegueda lives. The
median income is a whopping
$136,000 in Palo Alto, Calif., the
hub of Silicon Valley. Even
engineers at Facebook have been
struggling to pay their rent. Being
able to save for a home seems
even more of an implausible
scenario.
“My husband and I sometimes
look at each other and say, what
are we doing here? A house here
costs a million dollars,” says
Osegueda. “It’s kind of insane
when you think about it.”

America’s vast differences in
pay and costs make creating a
one-size-fits-all tax policy tricky.
One of the biggest problems
Republicans face as they work on
the tax bill is where to draw the
tax-bracket lines for people of
different incomes. GOP leaders
are still working out where to set
the rates, and at what income
level those rates will kick in.
Politicians almost always say
their top concern is the wellbeing of the middle class, taking
advantage of the vague
definitions of the term to appeal
to voters at a broad range of
income levels.
But as Republicans look to
rewrite the tax code, their
proposal to sharply cut tax rates
while also eliminating many tax
deductions will have winners and
losers — including among people
who consider themselves middle
class.

over the past year show how a
company that has long relied
heavily on doing business with
the government — and whose
business model was under threat
— is thriving in the Trump era.
Even as the president has targeted lobbyists and Washington
special interests with his vow to
“drain the swamp,” GEO Group
has regained its footing while escalating its spending on traditional tactics such as lobbying
and campaign donations. The
Doral event represents a potential avenue of influence that is
unique to Trump: the chance for a
corporation to engage in a private
business transaction with the
president.
“It is the opposite of draining
the swamp,” said Carl Takei, a
senior staff lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Prison Project.
GEO Group did not answer
questions from The Washington
Post about its stepped-up political
activity, nor would the company
say when it booked the Doral
conference or how much it paid
the president’s resort.
The Post was able to identify
only one other event that GEO
had at Doral in recent years: a
shareholder meeting in 2007,
about five years before Trump
purchased the property.
“Over the years, we have held
company and employee meetings
at a variety of venues around the
country, and as a Florida-based
company, we have held meetings
throughout the state, including at
Doral,” GEO Group said in a statement.
The company also sought to
play down its influence in shaping the administration’s agenda.
“We do not take a position on, or
advocate for or against, criminal
justice, sentencing, immigration
enforcement or detention policies,” the statement said. “Our
political and lobbying activities
focus on promoting the benefits
of public-private partnerships.”
A White House official said the
administration had no knowledge of the Doral event. The
Trump Organization did not re-

spond to requests for comment.
GEO Group, which owns or
manages about 140 prisons, immigration-detention centers and
other facilities nationwide and
derives nearly half of its revenue
from federal contracts, entered
the Trump era with a great deal at
stake. In the past 10 years, the
federal government has paid GEO
Group and its subsidiaries more
than $4 billion, according to federal contracting records.
The company suffered a setback when, in the summer of
2016, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates ordered the Justice Department to phase out its
use of private prisons. Yates’s
move came after a Justice Department inspector general’s report
called the facilities less secure
than those run by the government.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons
slashed thousands of beds from
potential prison deals that were
up for a federal award.
In a statement to The Post, GEO
criticized the inspector general’s
findings and said the data shows
that “privately run facilities are at
least as equally safe, secure, and
humane as publicly run facilities.”
In the 2016 election cycle, GEO
stepped up its contributions, with
its employee-financed political
action committee giving federal
candidates, PACs and parties
about $732,000 — more than four
times as much as in the previous
presidential cycle, according to
federal filings. Of the amount
contributed directly to congressional candidates in the last cycle,
87 percent went to Republicans,
according to a breakdown by the
Center for Responsive Politics.
Early in the presidential race,
Trump made clear that he supported the use of private prisons.
“I do think we can do a lot of
privatizations and private prisons. It seems to work a lot better,”
he said during a televised town
hall gathering in March 2016.
His Democratic rival, Hillary
Clinton, had the opposite view,
saying in a September debate,
“You shouldn’t have a profit motivation to fill prison cells with
young Americans.”
A subsidiary of GEO Group
contributed $225,000 to the proTrump super PAC Rebuilding
America Now — including
$125,000 about a week before the
election, according to campaign
finance reports.
The watchdog group Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election
Commission about the contributions, arguing that they violated a
long-standing ban on donations
by federal contractors.
GEO has said that because its
subsidiary, GEO Corrections
Holdings, made the donation, the
ban does not apply. The complaint is pending before the FEC.
GEO has brought on new lobbyists in the past year, hiring two
former Sessions aides, David
Stewart and Ryan Robichaux, as
well as Brian Ballard, who represented the Trump Organization in
Florida and raised money for his
campaign.
Stewart and Robichaux did not
respond to requests for comment.
Ballard told The Post that he is
unable to comment on matters
concerning his clients.
George Zoley, GEO Group’s
founder and chief executive, is a
prominent Republican donor in
Florida.
Lanny Davis, a Washington
consultant who previously represented GEO Group, said the company’s donations and lobbying
were not aimed at bolstering its
influence over policymakers.
Rather, Davis said, Zoley is simply
“a Republican and he liked
Trump.”
A month into the Trump administration, Sessions issued a memo
reversing Yates’s decision. He said
the phaseout plan impaired the
Bureau of Prisons’ “ability to meet
the future needs of the federal
correctional system.”
Sessions had in the past voiced
support for the use of contract
facilities, saying in a 2010 congressional hearing that he believed “there is a role for private
prisons in the American system.”
GEO Group did not answer
questions about whether it lobbied
Sessions to reverse the policy.

the federal government this year.
In April, it won the Trump
administration’s first immigration detention contract, a 10-year
deal first proposed during President Barack Obama’s term to
build and run a 1,000-bed facility
in Conroe, Tex. GEO has said the
project is expected to generate
$44 million a year.
The company also has renewed
contracts for Bureau of Prisons
facilities such as the Big Spring
complex in Texas, where GEO has
said it expects about $664 million
in combined revenue over a 10year term.
Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said the Bureau of
Prisons requires a competitivebidding process for its contract
awards and “does not give preference to any company or organization.”
Zoley, who did not respond to
requests for comment, told investment analysts in August that
the company thinks “there are a
number of significant opportunities to deploy our assets over the
next year.” He added, “We remain
optimistic about the demand for
our diversified services and our
continued growth potential.”
In bringing its annual conference last week to Doral, GEO was
doing business with one of the
signature properties in Trump’s
real estate empire.
Although Trump no longer
manages his private company,
ethics experts have said his decision to retain ownership has created the potential for corporations and other interests with
business before the federal government to gain influence by bolstering the president’s personal
fortune.
The golf resort, which Trump
bought in 2012 and extensively
renovated, is the single biggest
contributor to Trump’s cash flow,
according to Trump’s June financial disclosure filing, generating
$116 million in revenue between
January 2016 and March 2017.
Large events can generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in
revenue for the resort. The Republican Governors Association,
which held a donor summit at
Doral this spring, paid the resort
more than $408,000 for its twoday event, tax filings show. A
spokesman said the event was
planned in early 2015.
The same week of the GEO
meeting, Doral hosted events by
two other large companies —
L3 Technologies and Siemens
Healthineers — that have major
government contracts. An L3
spokeswoman said the event was
unrelated to the current administration, while Siemens did not
respond to requests for comment.
One evening during GEO’s conference, dozens of wardens and
executives were shuttled by charter bus to a nearby Latin bar for a
performance by Zoley, who plays
guitar in a rock band.
Just past 9:30 p.m., scores of
GEO employees who were packed
into the bar’s patio began cheering as the band launched into a
cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back
Down.”

THE WASHINGTON POST
RE
. THURSDAY,
OCTOBER 26 , 2017
Gillespie tries to woo Trump’s base, appeal to moderates
GILLESPIE FROM A1
in the state is below 40 percent.
But the president’s populist appeal remains muscular enough
that Gillespie has had to become a
political contortionist, seeking to
appeal to Trump’s base without
pushing moderates toward his
opponent, Lt. Gov. Ralph
Northam (D).
“Ed’s a very competent, rational, thoughtful candidate who,
in a more traditional Republican
Party, would be a perfect fit,” said
former House speaker Newt Gingrich, for whom Gillespie helped
draft the 1994 “Contract With
America.” “But there’s a growing
level of anger about a wide range
of things — a growing sense that
Washington isn’t responsive.
There’s a substantial minority
that wants an emotional, hardedged approach.”
Gillespie, in an interview,
brushed off questions about navigating the GOP’s breach and was
visibly irritated when asked
about Trump. Instead, from behind his desk at his Richmond
campaign headquarters, he
launched into an impromptu version of his stump speech (“I care
deeply about my fellow Virginians . . .”) and said pollsters
and academics are more qualified
to analyze the race’s dynamics.
“I just don’t have time to do
this kind of punditry,” Gillespie
said. “I’m just a candidate; I’m
just out there talking about the
issues.”
Once a ubiquitous presence on
Sunday talk shows, his pointed
advocacy for the GOP often leavened by genial asides, Gillespie,
56, sometimes wears the pained
expression of a man trying to
tiptoe through a gunfight.
His appearances — a breakneck schedule of receptions, festivals and Friday night high school
football games — are carefully
managed and in many cases unpublicized; his every word seems
calibrated, even when responding to the most mundane questions. Asked about the political
leanings of his three adult children, Gillespie said: “I’ve never
asked my children what party
they’re in.”
Tactical cunning has defined
Gillespie’s career, beginning
when he followed the lead of an
early boss on Capitol Hill and
switched from Democrat to Republican. Later, he worked for
Republican upstart Rep. Richard
K. Armey (Tex.) before joining
Bush’s coterie of Washington
hands.
On the stump, Gillespie says he
is running to rejuvenate what he
says is Virginia’s stalled economy,
and that the next governor needs
“a sense of urgency” to enact
change.
“I have those new policies, I
have that sense of urgency, and I
will not fail us,” he promises.
Affable and earnest as he campaigns, Gillespie often cites a
running tally of “detailed, specific” policy plans he has released —
17 was the total one week, 18 the
next, 20 in the most recent count.
He tells audiences that his grandfather was a janitor and that he
himself was the founder of “three
small businesses,” although he
omits that he is including Quinn
Gillespie & Associates, a premier
Washington lobbying firm that
represented major corporations
such as Enron and Microsoft.
As RNC chair in the early
2000s, Gillespie championed a
“big tent” GOP, immigration reform and outreach to black and
Hispanic voters. In his 2006 book
“Winning Right,” he dismissed
“anti-immigration rhetoric” as a
“political siren’s song” that Republicans must reject “or our
majority will crash.”
Yet as a gubernatorial candidate, Gillespie has been airing
campaign ads that equate violent
gangs with illegal immigrants to
suggest that his opponent is lenient
toward
criminals.
Northam’s opposition to a blanket ban on “sanctuary cities,” a
narrator warns, “let illegal immigrants who commit crimes back
on the street.” The ads include
images of tattooed men who had
been photographed in a prison in
El Salvador.
Gillespie often refrains from
mentioning Trump during public
appearances. But in Danville, on
the commonwealth’s south side —
where turnout for Trump was
robust last November — Gillespie
twice promised the audience, “I
will be able to work with President Trump.”
Donna Randall and her husband, George, 59, a retired power
plant worker, arrived at the town
hall in a minivan festooned with
stickers of Trump and the Confederate flag. In Virginia’s gubernatorial primary, the Randalls
backed Corey A. Stewart, the Republican who nearly upset
Gillespie with his voluble defense
of Confederate monuments.
“Ed’s part of the establishment,” Gary Randall said, his
longish gray hair topped by a

cowboy hat, explaining his support for Stewart.
“There’s a feeling he can be
bought,” said Donna Randall, distributing red “Save Our Monuments” stickers before Gillespie
spoke.
Later, when she asked for his
views on the children of undocumented immigrants, or “dreamers,” Gillespie expressed sympathy for their plight and recounted
that his father had immigrated
from Ireland as a child.
Then Gillespie’s tone changed.
He promised to deny dreamers
in-state tuition at public universities to preserve slots for “Virginia citizens.”
“You know who should be deported?” he asked. “Someone who
has been here illegally and kills
somebody.”
greatest state in the greatest
country to ever grace the face of
God’s earth.”
He made one fleeting reference
to Trump and none to the
“swamp.”
The applause were more polite
than exuberant.
As Gillespie shook hands, Stuart Jones, 58, an engineer who
backed Trump, Brat and Stewart,
promised him his vote “because
you’re not Ralph Northam.”
“Well, that’s a start,” Gillespie
said.
Brat, in an interview as he ate
baked beans, said that Gillespie’s
challenge is to excite Republicans
who became “complacent” after
Trump’s victory. “We’re asleep,”
Brat said. “The swamp’s still in
control and we don’t have any big
wins under our belt.” Asked

Donna Randall applauded.
“He’s coming around,” she said.
“He’s all we’ve got,” her husband said.
‘You’re not Ralph Northam’
On
a
recent
Saturday,
Gillespie’s campaign hosted a picnic at the center of anti-Washington ferment — the countryside
north of Richmond, where voters
in 2014 helped catapult unknown
conservative Dave Brat to an astounding upset over Rep. Eric
Cantor, the House majority leader.
Hanover County voters also
chose Trump in 2016 and Stewart
over Gillespie in June. Now
Gillespie needs their votes.
Many guests at the picnic wore
hats and T-shirts bearing Trump’s
and Brat’s names, and they applauded after the congressman,
among the featured guests,
praised Trump’s campaign to
drain Washington’s “swamp.”
When it was his turn, Gillespie
described Virginia’s economy as
“stagnant,” promised 50,000 new
jobs if his tax cut is enacted, and
hailed the commonwealth as “the
whether Gillespie’s Washington
bona fides can excite anti-establishment voters, the congressman
said, “That’s what he has to answer.”
Ten days later, just before a
town hall meeting on Virginia’s
Northern Neck, Mal Ransone, 64,
said he didn’t need Gillespie to
declare fealty to Trump or defend
Confederate monuments.
“What’s he going to do about
the infrastructure?” asked Ransone, the owner of a construction
company. His son, Andrew, 28,
whose motorboat is adorned with
two tall Trump flags, nodded.
“His energy should be about
making the state better,” he said
of Gillespie. “I like Trump, but a
milder approach is better for Virginia.”
Gillespie delivered, focusing
his remarks on the economy. No
one asked about the president or
long-dead Civil War generals.
Other issues caused awkward
moments.
The evening’s final question
was from a man who asked
Gillespie to explain his “moral
calculus” for having represented
the tobacco industry when he was
a lobbyist.
“Will you bring that same moral calculus to your position as
governor?” asked the man, who
later said he belonged to a Democratic advocacy group.
Gillespie waded into a lengthy
answer in which he twice said he
was “proud of my career” and
three times that he was “honest
and ethical.”
“You can cherry-pick clients all
you want,” Gillespie said. “You
could have picked Friends of Cancer Research, as well, or the Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation.
“I know how to get things
done,” he promised.
Lisa Smith, 51, who was in the
audience that night, had applauded when Gillespie, responding to
her question, said he supported
medical marijuana. But she was
bothered by his tobacco answer.
“It was the whole song and
dance of the politician,” Smith
said. “If you made a mistake, then
say you made a mistake. Or admit
that you didn’t think it was
wrong. Be a straight shooter.”
A talent for unity
Gillespie’s path to the Republican Party began in a Democratic
household in southern New Jersey. In the dining room, his parents hung a lithograph of President John F. Kennedy, as rendered by an artist, walking in a
field with Pope John XXIII.
Gillespie’s father, Jack, an Irish
Catholic with a politician’s gift for
banter, was a Proctor & Gamble
salesman in Philadelphia before
moving his family to Browns Mill,
N.J., where he bought his motherin-law’s grocery store and opened
a bar.
The store was a hub of local life
where Jack and Conny Gillespie
expected their five children to
work after school. “Even on your
birthday, you’d get a cake and a
four-hour shift,” said John
Gillespie, Ed’s brother, echoing a
line the candidate often uses on
the stump.
“Eddie,” as friends still call
him, displayed an early talent for
illusion, able to make a dove
suddenly flutter from his handkerchief, one of the magic tricks
he performed as he went table to
table at The Show Place, a Jersey
Shore ice cream parlor. He also
learned ventriloquism, encouraged by his mother who, when he

was 13, bought him a dummy
named “Simon Sez.” (Three decades later, Gillespie and thenDemocratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich were runners-up at a “Funniest Celebrity in Washington”
contest for their joint ventriloquist act).
As he headed to college,
Gillespie aspired to become a
political reporter, an ambition he
pursued at Catholic University,
where his campus sports column
included “Gillespie’s Guess” — his
pick of the winner for upcoming
football games and grist for
mockery when he was wrong.
After Catholic defeated archrival Georgetown — despite his
prediction to the contrary —
Gillespie ate the ink version of his
words. “They crumpled up the
newspaper and he washed it
down with Budweiser,” said Kevin
Costello, Gillespie’s housemate.
To earn money, Gillespie
parked cars for Senate staff at a
lot outside the U.S. Capitol, after
which he interned for Rep. Andy
Ireland, a Democrat from Florida
who turned Republican in 1984.
Although he had been raised a
Democrat — “They all but
stamped it on your birth certificate,” he said — Gillespie followed
his boss.
“Ronald Reagan just spoke to
me in a way that Walter Mondale
did not,” he said.
Politics became the core of
Gillespie’s existence. At a congressional softball game, he met
his future wife, Cathy, chief of
staff for Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.),
who also happened to employ
another person who would play
an important role in Gillespie’s
life — Karl Rove, then an up-andcoming consultant.
For a decade, beginning in the
mid-1980s, Gillespie was a
spokesman for Armey, who credited his former aide with persuading him to enlist then-Sen. Barry
Goldwater (R-Ariz.) to help get
national attention for what would
become his signature initiative:
granting Congress authority to
shut military bases.
“Eddie said you need a big
name,” Armey said of aligning
with Goldwater. “It was a hell of
an idea.”
Gillespie also helped Armey
and Gingrich sell the “Contract
With America,” distilling their
legislative agenda into 10 points
with titles such as “Fiscal Responsibility Act” and the “American
Dream Restoration Act.”
The contract became the cornerstone of the GOP’s 1994 revolution that resulted in the party
taking control of Congress, Gingrich rising to speaker and Armey
becoming majority leader.
Gillespie emerged with a reputation as a master spinmeister,
though not without enduring his
share of crises, including one in
which he had to defend Armey for
referring to openly gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) as “Barney
Fag.”
As much as anything, Gillespie
was known for uniting varying
factions around a central message. He resisted deviation from
the party’s talking points, as pollster Frank Luntz learned during a
high-volume clash in a Capitol
hallway one day after he questioned language Republicans
used to attack then-President Bill
Clinton.
“He told me to shut up,” Luntz
recalled. “He said we needed to be
unified and that when a decision
had been made, I needed to go
along with it.”
Growing influence
By 2012, when Mitt Romney
appointed him senior adviser to
his
presidential
campaign,
Gillespie’s influence extended beyond Washington.
After leading the RNC and
counseling Bush, he helped mastermind a strategy that led to
Republicans winning majorities
in more than two dozen state
legislatures, controlling redistricting in those states and ensuring that GOP candidates won
House elections. The victories cemented Republican control of the
House after President Barack
Obama’s election.
Gillespie also helped Rove conceive of American Crossroads, a
super PAC, and affiliated groups
that raised tens of millions in
unregulated donations known as
“dark money” that Republicans
funneled to GOP candidates nationwide.
“It’s fair to call Ed Gillespie one
of the principal architects of ‘dark
money,’ ” said Sheila Krumholz of
the Center for Responsive Politics, describing him as “about as
influential and connected an insider as they come.”
Yet, after Romney’s defeat,
Gillespie’s friends sensed that he
was fatigued and frustrated with
national politics. “It was clear to
me that he wasn’t going to get
into another presidential campaign,” said Chris Jankowski, a
Republican consultant. “He just
had enough.”
Gillespie said he became fed up
with life on the road, which included sleeping on a bed in the
middle of a studio apartment in
Boston, where Romney was
based. “I missed my wife,” he said.
“It’s a young man’s game.”
But he didn’t leave politics.
Instead, he reinvented himself as
a candidate for Democrat Mark R.
Warner’s Virginia Senate seat in
2014, a campaign he said he
waged because no one else would
challenge the incumbent.
Gillespie lost by only 1 percent,
delighting Republicans surprised
by his near-upset.
“I thought I was done,” he said
of his stint as a candidate.
Yet, as Virginia’s gubernatorial
contest approached, the contender he supported, State Sen. Mark
D. Obenshain (R-Rockingham)
chose to sit out the race.
“I really thought he was going
to run,” Gillespie said, adding that
he then decided, “Okay, I will do
it.”
Trump’s victory and the civil
war within the GOP thrust
Gillespie into a new tactical quagmire.
In the GOP primary, Stewart
astonished Virginia’s political establishment by aping Trump’s
bombast. He branded Gillespie
“Establishment Ed” and nearly
defeated him.
Four months later, Stewart still
has not made a joint appearance
with Gillespie and struggles to
muster enthusiasm for his campaign, describing him as “far
from the Trump model” that he
believes is “becoming dominant.”
“He’s your standard Republican — a 1980s model Republican,”
Stewart recently said of Gillespie.
“If Ed wins, it’s an indication that
things haven’t changed that
much.”
The president injected himself
into the gubernatorial race in
early October when he abruptly
tweeted, “Vote Ed Gillespie!,” an
endorsement that threw the candidate into a new round of contortions.
Gillespie did not acknowledge
Trump’s support for nearly 12
hours, and only after he was
asked about it on a media call. He
still hasn’t included it among his
long list of endorsements on his
campaign website.
That afternoon, Gillespie was
at his campaign headquarters
desk, bristling as he faced more
questions about Trump.
No, he didn’t know the president would endorse him.
No, he had not asked for
Trump’s blessing.
“Can we go off the record?”
Gillespie asked before saying,
“I’m not going to talk about this.”
He referred further questions
to his spokesman, who was sitting
a couple of feet away. But
Gillespie wasn’t finished.
“I don’t recall having asked
anyone for their endorsement,”
he said. Then: “I guess I’m just
confused why this is newsworthy.”
Twenty minutes later, after the
subject had changed, he circled
back and insisted on one last
point.
“Just to be clear, I didn’t ask
him not to endorse,” he said of the
president, before disappearing
down a hallway.

Spy-bill renewal advances in Senate with few changes
Concerns over handling
of Americans’ data are
an obstacle in House
BY
AND
E LLEN N AKASHIMA
K AROUN D EMIRJIAN
The Senate Intelligence Committee this week advanced a bill
that renews a powerful surveillance authority enabling the government to collect foreign intelligence on U.S. soil.
The 12-to-3 vote reflected divisions on the panel over whether
and how to strengthen privacy
protections in the law, known as
Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act. And it shows that a
path to renewing the authority,
which expires at the end of the
year, is anything but clear in the
Senate.
The National Security Agency
calls the law its most important
operational statute. The intelligence community would like to
see it renewed without change.
But that is unlikely to happen
given strong opposition in the
House.
Section 702 enables the NSA to
collect from U.S. companies the
emails and other communications of foreign targets overseas
for intelligence purposes. Some
of those communications may be
with Americans, and civil-liberties advocates are concerned because the law does not require a
warrant to search within the
data for Americans’ information.
In an apparent attempt to
address that concern, the Senate
committee on Tuesday, during a
closed session, agreed unanimously to impose a new procedural hurdle for the FBI to
review and use Americans’
emails and other communications collected under the authority. But the measure, proposed by
Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), the
panel’s ranking Democrat, does
not go as far as civil liberties
advocates say is necessary.
It does not require the FBI to
obtain a warrant before searching for Americans’ communications. Nor does it require the
court to demonstrate that those
Americans may be engaged in
criminal activity or acting as
agents of a foreign power.
Instead, it specifies that if an
FBI query turns up information
on “a known United States person,” it has one business day to
submit a request to the Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Court,
which hears applications for foreign surveillance in the United
States. The court then has two
business days to rule on the
request’s legality, according to
several people familiar with the
measure.
Any request for a foreign intel-

Committee, at a news conference on Capitol Hill last week.
ligence or law enforcement purpose is legal under the secret
court’s rulings. That means that
virtually all requests would be
approved, analysts said.
If the court rules against the
request, investigators are barred
from using the information “in
any court proceeding.” But the
provision applies only to queries
that turn up data on “known”
U.S. persons. There is no requirement to run queries that yield
data on possible U.S. persons or
about foreigner citizens.
“This is not reform,” said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the
Liberty and National Security
Program at the Brennan Center
for Justice. “This is window
dressing.”
Moreover, she said, the measure would greatly add to the
surveillance court’s workload
without any meaningful enhancement for Americans’ privacy.
A spokeswoman for Warner
declined to comment.
The committee bill, which has
not been made public, stands in
contrast to a House Judiciary
Committee proposal to renew
Section 702 that would instead
require the FBI to obtain a
warrant, based on probable
cause, to review any communications turned up in a query seeking evidence of a crime. It would
not apply to queries for counterterrorism, counterproliferation
or counterespionage purposes.
Before adopting Warner’s
amendment, the committee rejected a measure from two California Democrats — Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala D.
Harris — that would have required the FBI to obtain a warrant before accessing the content
of Americans’ emails.
The move is noteworthy because Feinstein has been a
staunch advocate of robust surveillance capabilities. Feinstein’s
decision to join forces with Harris comes barely two weeks after
Feinstein announced her intention to run for reelection to a
fifth full Senate term.
FBI Director Christopher A.
Wray was in Feinstein’s office
Monday asking her not to offer
the amendment. Intelligence officials have said that they do not
think such a requirement is necessary or advisable.
Wray has said that the FBI
receives information on 4.3 percent of the targets under NSA
Section 702 collection. That
translates to some 4,500 foreign
targets. That is part of the data
pool the FBI taps when doing its
queries.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), a
committee member and one of
the Senate’s most vocal privacy
advocates, has filed a bill with
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that
would require the FBI to obtain a
warrant before querying Section
702 data when investigators are
looking specifically for Americans’ communications.
Wyden was one of three senators who voted against the overall bill on privacy grounds. Joining him were Harris and Sen.
Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).
A spokeswoman for Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that no scheduling decisions about the legislation have been made. Given the
controversy, she said, the FISA
bill is not expected to be sent to
the Senate floor before senators
outside the committee have a
chance to weigh in.
Senate Judiciary Committee
Chairman Charles E. Grassley
(R-Iowa), for his part, said he was
not expecting to take up the
intelligence panel’s bill.
Should the legislation clear
the Senate, it is unlikely to make
it through the House, where a
coalition of liberal Democrats
and conservative Republicans —
including many members of the
Freedom Caucus — support
stronger privacy protections in
Section 702.

New gene-editing techniques could alter mutations that cause disease
Scientists say tools are
not ready as therapies
but may be someday
BY
B EN G UARINO
Genetics is having a moment in
the sun. Last year, biologists at
the University of Bath in England
created mice with neon feet. Scientists edited human embryos for
the first time in the United States
in August, cutting out a mutation
for a heritable heart disease. Earlier this month, research spearheaded by the Chinese Academy
of Sciences produced leaner pigs
— a harbinger, one imagines, of
low-fat bacon.
Each of these feats required a
laboratory tool called CRISPRCas9, often shortened to CRISPR.
The gene-editing system hunts
for a specific section of DNA and
snips it out. CRISPR surged
through molecular biology labs
on a wave that began five years
ago, when about 150 published
scientific papers had CRISPR in
their titles. By 2016, that figure
was in the thousands.
And the geneticist’s toolbox
has gained two shelves, researchers at the Broad Institute in Cambridge,
Mass.,
announced
Wednesday. One new method, reported in the journal Science,
manipulates a different sort of
genetic information: RNA, not
DNA. The other method, reported
in Nature, is capable of subtle
DNA changes — a tweak of a
single point rather than a chop
through DNA’s double helix.
Although the two studies were
unrelated, both of the tools involved share similarities with
CRISPR. They are easy to use, the
authors say. And they lock on to
their genetic targets like microscopic homing missiles.
Eugene Koonin called the RNA
tool “an excellent advance.” Koonin, a genomics researcher at the
National Institutes of Health who
was not involved with this research, said the RNA editor could
be used to treat conditions “that
are short-term in nature, such as
local inflammation and the like.”
RNA carries genetic information from DNA throughout a cell,
allowing the cell to make new
proteins. It’s a bit like a person
who ducks into a library, records
instructions from a book and
runs back out to share notes.
CRISPR permanently alters an
embryo’s genome. But any changes via RNA manipulation are temporary. Even if you erase part of
the notebook, the original text in
the library stays intact.
The RNA tool focuses on a
Judge opposes request to force
Trump to pay key ACA subsidies
BY A MY G OLDSTEIN
AND J ULIET E ILPERIN
A federal judge in California on
Wednesday denied a request from
19 attorneys general across the
country to force the Trump administration to resume funding
of cost-sharing payments under
the Affordable Care Act.
The ruling leaves intact President Trump’s decision earlier this
month to immediately end the
payments that reimburse insurers for discounts the law requires
them to give lower-income customers with health plans through
ACA marketplaces. The attorneys
general, from 18 states and the
District, were seeking a temporary order that would have maintained the funding while the rest
of the case is decided.
In his decision, Judge Vince
Chhabria of the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of
California wrote that resuming
the payments to insurers “would
be counterproductive.”
Chhabria pointed out that
most states’ insurance regulators
had already prepared for a possible end to the money, by allowing
companies to charge higher rates
for the coming year. “Although
you wouldn’t know it from reading the states’ papers in this lawsuit,” he wrote, “the truth is that
most state regulators have devised responses.”
The judge did not decide the
suit’s core question: whether the
federal government must continue funding the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments without
a specific congressional appropriation.
“Both sides have reasonable
arguments,” Chhabria said. But,
he said, “it initially appears that
the Administration has the stronger legal position” because the
2010 law did not explicitly pro-
vide permanent funding for the
CSR payments in the same way it
did for a separate subsidy that
helps people with ACA health
plans afford their monthly premiums.
The court ruling was one of
several developments related to
the health-care law on Wednesday. It coincided with a review by
the internal watchdog for the
Health and Human Services Department of one of the administration’s first actions on the law,
as well as a forecast by Congress’s
budget analysts of the effects of a
bipartisan Senate plan to try to
stabilize the ACA’s marketplaces.
According to the HHS inspector general, hours after they were
briefed on outreach activities for
the final days of the last ACA
enrollment season, temporary
political appointees at the department abruptly canceled those
plans without assessing the impact.
That cancellation in January
was marked by confusion over
whether the appointees wanted
to stop all or part of the federal
contracts for outreach and ended
up costing the government
$1 million that could not be recouped, the inspector general
found. The report was released on
Wednesday by two Democratic
senators who had sought the inquiry.
Coming exactly a week before
the start of the 2018 enrollment
period for ACA plans, the findings
circle back to Trump’s first week
in power and the beginnings of
what has evolved into a succession of administration moves
widely perceived to be undercutting the insurance marketplaces.
The inquiry found that, as part
of their transition briefings with
an early set of HHS appointees
known as a “beachhead team,”
career officials sent an email Jan.
25 that detailed the work still to
be done by outside contractors to
encourage consumers to buy ACA
coverage before that enrollment
period ended. The email provided
information to be discussed at a
staff meeting the next morning.
After the meeting, the inquiry
found, a political appointee told
the department’s public affairs
officials to cancel two outreach
contracts. The directive was soon
altered to cancel only the outreach activities for which the government could not recover payment. However, one contractor
already had halted $1.1 million
worth of work that could not be
recouped.
The review also found that the
career officials stressed how important the closing outreach activities were to attracting young,
healthy customers to the marketplaces. But “the materials did not
contain a full analysis of the
potential impact that canceling
outreach might have on enrollment,” and officials have not since
assessed the impact.
Meanwhile, the Congressional
Budget Office found that proposed bipartisan Senate legislation would lower the federal deficit by nearly $3.8 billion during
the next decade and would not
affect the number of people with
health insurance.
The assessment of the plan,
written by the chairman and top
Democrat on the Senate Health,
Education, Labor and Pensions
Committee, forecasts no fiscal effect from one of its main features:
resuming for two years the costsharing payments Trump has
stopped.
That central aspect of the bill
would not itself affect the deficit,
the nonpartisan budget analysts
conclude, because the CBO had
been assuming those payments
would continue.
single type of mutation in the
alphabet of the genetic code,
which is predominantly made up
of compounds represented by
four letters: A, C, G and T.
“If you look at genetic diseases
that are caused by single-letter
mutations in the DNA, G to A
mutations account for more than
40 percent, almost half, of all the
mutations,” said Feng Zhang, an
author of the Science study and a
molecular biologist at the Broad
Institute, a biomedical research
facility that is a partnership between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard
University.
A few years ago, Zhang and his
colleagues began working with a
bacterial protein called Cas13.
Like Cas9, this enzyme cuts
through genetic information, although it slices RNA instead of
DNA. In the study, the authors
mutated the Cas13 enzyme. Bac-
teria used the Cas13 protein as a
molecular butcher knife to trim
invading viral RNA from the meat
of the genome.
The scientists mutated the protein to bind to mammalian RNA
without destroying it. Once
bound, the new method made a
single modification, changing the
letter A to I (which a cell interprets as G). In other words, if DNA
mutates from G to A, this tool
effectively halts the mutation at
the RNA level. The authors of the
Science report named the new
system REPAIR: RNA Editing for
Programmable A to I Replacement. REPAIR successfully converted A to I at target sites at an
average rate of 20 percent to
40 percent.
Although it is far from ready as
a therapy, Zhang said that he
envisions such a tool being utilized in doses.
“One of the major concerns
about DNA editing is that once
you make a permanent change,
it’s hard to undo it,” he said.
“Whereas with RNA, once you
stop giving the RNA editing REPAIR system, then those changes
will be reverted back.” (It’s the
difference between constructing
a car with a more powerful engine
vs. deflating tires when you want
to drive over sand and reinflating
them when you hit pavement.)
Likewise, chemistry professor
David Liu and his colleagues at
Harvard University created a new
way to change a single DNA base
pair. But if scientists wield CRISPR like scissors to cut DNA, Liu
said, this base editor is the genetic
equivalent of a pencil writing in
the correct letter where there was
previously a mutation.
But the analysts still predict
the relatively small savings because health insurers that raised
their prices for the coming year to
compensate for the funding loss
would then need to give the government some kind of rebate for
charging too much.
The score arrived slightly more
than a week after Sens. Lamar
Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty
Murray (D-Wash.) introduced
legislation they had begun to negotiate after the failure of a succession of Republican-only Senate bills to dismantle major parts
of the 2010 health-care law. The
focus of their negotiations was to
strengthen the ACA marketplaces
that are designed for consumers
who cannot get affordable health
benefits through a job.

Health-care reform that pays off
A Congressional Budget Office analysis shows that the Alexander-Murray bill would do much good.
W
market. Mr. Trump ignored this warning.
The Alexander-Murray bill would restore the payments for two years. The CBO predicts that, though
the damage has been done for 2018, the bill would
restrain premiums and cut government spending in
2019. If the payments were continued beyond that
point, the savings would presumably continue, as
well.
But the Alexander-Murray plan contains much
more, and the CBO’s findings on the bill’s Obamacare
reforms are the most illuminating pieces of the new
analysis. For example, the bill would allow all people
to buy “copper” (as opposed to gold, silver or bronze)
health-care plans, which would offer consumers less
generous benefits at a lower monthly price. The CBO
found that this provision would draw more healthy
people into the individual market, lowering average
premiums and saving the government $1 billion.
Streamlining the process though which states can
obtain waivers from Obamacare rules, meanwhile,
would spur more state-based experimentation.
Spain’s political
brinkmanship
These selling points, however, may not change
Republican thinking, at least not judging by GOP
leaders’ behavior. HuffPost reported Tuesday that
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) told conservative lawmakers that the Alexander-Murray plan probably would not be attached to a year-end budget
package, the most likely vehicle for its passage.
Mr. Trump has been all over the map on the compromise, seeming to encourage the deal at one point, and
then, at another, demanding absurd new concessions
that Democrats would never accept. Sen. Orrin G.
Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tex.) on
Tuesday released their own, more conservative version that calls for dismantling major pieces of
Obamacare — an unhelpful, partisan proposal that
would hurt health-care markets, cannot pass and
makes real compromise more difficult.
Republicans can continue ignoring reality, tempting chaos in health-care markets and risking the
nation’s fiscal health. But they cannot claim they were
not warned.

According to Matthew Miller, a Justice Department spokesman under President Barack Obama,
Mr. Obama never interviewed a candidate for U.S.
attorney. Past presidents have remained at arm’s
length from nominees — and later, the attorneys
themselves — to preserve the Justice Department’s
ability to enforce the law without political interference. It’s just this principle that Mr. Trump violated
in requesting the loyalty of then-FBI Director James
B. Comey and pushing the FBI and Justice Department to drop proceedings he disliked.
Any presidential interview of a U.S. attorney
candidate would cross the line. But it is particularly
concerning that Mr. Trump chose to speak with the
men and women who could lead investigations into
his business in New York and his activities as
president in Washington. With special counsel Robert S. Mueller III already investigating Mr. Trump for
possible obstruction of justice — and reports that the
Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is now looking into
possible money laundering by former Trump aide
Paul Manafort — such interference is not an abstract
such as Catalonia more autonomy; Mr. Rajoy agreed
to a proposal by the opposition Socialist Workers’
Party to have a congressional committee study it. The
other is a fresh regional election in Catalonia, which
is the right way to challenge Mr. Puigdemont’s
leadership.
The Catalan opposition wants an election, as does
Madrid. But any vote must not exclude proindependence parties, no matter their legal wrongs.
Mr. Rajoy’s hard-line actions risk driving more voters
into the separatist camp. He should refrain from
more repression and push for a political solution.
concern.
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to confirm
Ms. Liu after she assured members that Mr. Trump
had not requested her loyalty or discussed any
ongoing or future investigations. The same may turn
out to be true of Mr. Berman and Mr. McNally. But the
fact that the president spoke with them is concerning
enough. And Mr. Trump’s continued violations show
that a stronger response from Congress is required.
Both Democrats and Republicans on the committee should refuse to consider any nominees whom
Mr. Trump has interviewed, as Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) has suggested. This has nothing to do
with Mr. Berman and Mr. McNally’s fitness for office:
Mr. Berman appears qualified for the position, while
Mr. McNally’s behavior as interim U.S. attorney for
the Southern District of Illinois raises questions.
Rather, it’s a matter of the committee making clear to
the White House that Mr. Trump’s behavior crosses a
line no matter whom he nominates. This threat to the
impartial administration of justice cannot go unchallenged.

It’s about government accountability, not undermining integrity
The Oct. 23 editorial “Swift injustice” worried
about a potential new Justice Department initiative
to impose performance standards on the Executive
Office for Immigration Review, alleging (without
evidence) that this proposal would do little to fix the
country’s immigration courts and would undermine their integrity. However, it appears to me that
all the Justice Department is doing is following the
Government Performance and Results Act and
subsequent Government Performance and Results
Modernization Act mandates to implement and
review performance measures to assess the effectiveness of government programs, of which immigration review is one. Under these acts, all
government programs are to develop and report
performance measures on their results or out-
As I sometimes do, I found my head nodding in
agreement with Michael Gerson while reading his
Oct. 20 op-ed, “True education involves risk,” at least
until he equated me with book banners.
I am one of those teachers who strives to make my
classroom a safe space for all students, regardless of
race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or political ideology. The safe space I seek to create is not the
cartoonish refrigerated space for liberals imagined
by Mr. Gerson and other critics; it is a space in which
all students can feel safe when discussing risky
works such as “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Maintaining
such a space is extremely hard work that demands
constant vigilance and openness. I don’t always get it
right, but I am convinced that the only place to have
uncomfortable conversations that benefit all students is in such safe spaces. If Mr. Gerson wants to
see how safe spaces work in the real world, I invite
him to visit my classroom.

There are additional costs to the coffee crisis that
the Oct. 22 Business article “Racing climate change
to save coffee” failed to mention. Not only will the
price rise for your morning $4 latte, but also
environmental costs will increase because of global
warming’s effects on coffee. Poor coffee farmers
who can’t afford new seeds will need to move their
plantations to higher altitudes to continue producing. As coffee farmers create farms, they cut down
forests to make room for their plantations and
increase pesticide usage, furthering biodiversity
loss and increasing soil erosion.
Modifying coffee seeds might be an alternative
method to help coffee plants withstand climate
change and to keep coffee plantations from relocating, but conventional farming methods are not the
answer to sustaining coffee production. Traditional
coffee-growing methods might not be as immediately economical as conventional methods, but
growing coffee under trees increases biodiversity
and soil quality and removes the need for pesticides, resulting in a healthier environment. By
hybridizing coffee seeds and using traditional
farming methods, farmers can farm more sustainably.
Alexander George Savelli, Takoma Park
Mr. Trump crosses another line
RESIDENT TRUMP’S disdain for the integrity of the Justice Department may no longer
surprise a weary public. But it is nevertheless
shocking to learn that Mr. Trump has
breached tradition to personally interview two candidates for U.S. attorney — both of whom would have
the power to investigate him in the future.
Politico and CNN report that Mr. Trump met with
Geoffrey Berman and Ed McNally, whom the administration is considering for the roles of U.S. attorney
for the Southern District of New York and the
Eastern District of New York, respectively. This isn’t
the first time Mr. Trump has spoken directly to a U.S.
attorney candidate. In March, he met with Jessie Liu,
who has since been confirmed as U.S. attorney for the
District of Columbia.
The White House and the Justice Department
assert that the president is acting within the scope of
his authority, because he has the constitutional
power to nominate U.S. attorneys in the first place.
But the fact that Mr. Trump’s actions are legal does
not mean that they are acceptable.
The Oct. 20 Metro article “Man who killed infant
son, buried him in woods receives 40 years in prison”
said that a man who was sentenced for killing his son
had “a long list of encounters . . . with Child Protective Services dating from at least 2007,” including for
carving a three-inch cross into his 5-year-old’s arm,
pushing a 5-year-old down the stairs, forcing a
daughter to watch him and a girlfriend have sex, and
so on. Why in the world was the man not in jail?
These are assaults, are they not? If he had done all of
those things to adults, wouldn’t he be in prison?
Where was Child Protective Services in Prince
George’s County? Where were the police? Is Child
Protective Services required to report assault on a
child to the police? Where is the protection for the
children? Why did a child have to die?

More to do to save coffee
S
PAIN IS facing its worst political crisis since
its return to democracy 40 years ago, thanks to
the inflexibility of two key leaders. Carles
Puigdemont, the president of the region of
Catalonia, insisted on going forward with a referendum on independence against the ruling of Spain’s
constitutional court and the sentiment of most of his
constituents; now he refuses to forswear a declaration of independence. In response, Mariano Rajoy,
Spain’s conservative prime minister, has reached for
a drastic remedy: a takeover of the province by
federal authorities, which could provoke mass civil
disobedience or even violence.
Spain’s Senate is due to vote Friday on Mr. Rajoy’s
invocation of a never-used constitutional article that
allows “all measures necessary” to force a region to
obey the law. There’s little question that Mr. Puigdemont’s government, a coalition of nationalists and
the far left that was elected with less than half the
popular vote, flouted the constitution by going
forward with the Oct. 1 referendum. But the measures the federal government is threatening, including the removal of the Catalan government and a
takeover of its police force, appear likely to provoke a
backlash even among the majority of the region’s
7.5 million citizens who have opposed independence.
Federal authorities have already jailed two popular
leaders of the independence movement without bail
on charges of sedition.
Mr. Puigdemont and his followers badly overestimated their ability to mobilize support for their
separatist cause. Only about 40 percent of voters
turned out for the referendum; Mr. Puigdemont’s
claim that the 90 percent pro-independence vote
among that minority is a mandate rings hollow.
European Union leaders bluntly rejected his appeals
for mediation and sided with the Madrid government, as did the Trump administration. Since the
vote, hundreds of companies have shifted their
headquarters out of Barcelona, a sign of the economic price it is likely to pay for its leaders’ folly.
Yet Mr. Puigdemont persists, threatening to have
the Catalan parliament vote on a formal declaration

HAT IF we told you that there was a plan
that, unlike so many recent Republican
health-care bills, could reform the
health-care system and restrain costs
without kicking anyone off their coverage? In fact,
that bill exists, the Congressional Budget Office
confirmed on Wednesday. The bipartisan compromise proposal crafted by Sens. Lamar Alexander
(R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) now officially
falls into the category of “so obvious it should pass
immediately.”
The motivation for the Alexander-Murray compromise was President Trump’s reckless refusal to distribute cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies — money the government promised
insurers in exchange for participating in Obamacare.
The CBO had previously warned that ending the
payments would actually cost the government
$194 billion over 10 years, because it would force

comes.
Measuring their processes is part of that, but a
minor part. The real measures are on the achievement of outcomes that are required by the acts to be
described in the department’s strategic plan. From
my perspective, that is what the department is
attempting to do.
The real issue to focus on is what decisions the
department takes in response to the results the
measures report. But not measuring the process,
output and impact results not only is flying blind
but also violates the acts and abdicates the
department’s responsibility to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of this program. Like it or not,
the two acts require no less.

The Oct. 21 Religion article “An evangelical in the
briefing room” and its subhead, “As she defends
Trump and ignites debates, Sanders draws on faith,”
left me with more questions than answers. What is
the theological basis of White House press secretary
Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s Christian faith that leads
her to support a boss who demeans women, mocks
the physically challenged, disparages Gold Star
families and prisoners of war, and fosters racial
tension? What is the theological basis of her faith
that leads her to support and defend the lies and
alternative facts of her boss? What is the theological
basis of her faith that leads her to support a boss who
comes across as spiritually and morally bankrupt?
My understanding of Ms. Sanders and evangelical
Christians in general is that they follow the teachings in the gospel. As a fellow Christian, I’m
befuddled as to exactly what gospel Ms. Sanders is
relying on.

Protect the artifacts
In his Oct. 20 Washington Forum essay, “The
history of Iraqi Jews is in danger,” Joseph Samuels
made a moving and cogent case for not returning to
Iraq the trove of Jewish artifacts rescued by U.S. soldiers from Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters.
I have just come back from Athens, where the
magnificent Acropolis Museum has reserved a place
of honor for the return of the Elgin Marbles that sadly
remain in the British Museum. If Greece, a parliamentary democracy with a long record of protecting
its archeological heritage, cannot be entrusted with
the marbles, how can we possibly entrust the possessions of Jews expelled from Iraq to those who persecuted them?

Mr. Baker deserved to stay
Regarding the Oct. 21 front-page article “Replacing Baker? Not so easy, Nats.”:
Firing Washington Nationals manager Dusty
Baker for failing to win the playoff series with the
Chicago Cubs was sad and misguided. Yes, it
certainly would be nice to win the World Series. But
let’s have some perspective. Winning in the regular
season gives fans six months of pleasure, not
several weeks. Moreover, because the sample is
much smaller, the playoffs are a less satisfactory
measure of Mr. Baker’s value. Mr. Baker won
division titles both years he managed the Nationals,
winning 95 and 97 games. That adds up to more
than a full year’s worth of pleasure and success that
should not have been seen as not good enough.

stressing economic issues while Northam
has been saturating liberal Northern Virginia with ads featuring women who are
cross because Gillespie is pro-life. Never
mind that governors have been almost
irrelevant to abortion policy since courts
took control of it two generations ago.
Perhaps Northam’s ads are intended to
enkindle progressives, but that should be
done by the president’s daily reminders of
his existence. If Gillespie enlists Trump to
campaign for him, he will thereby embrace a political style that entails a
political substance (e.g., harping on MS13) suited to it. If he does not, Trump’s
supporters will notice and accuse him of
having standards, yet another swampish
vice — the stigmata of elitism.
A Gillespie win on Nov. 7 would be a
double victory for Republicans. They
would control another swing-state’s governor’s mansion in 2020. And it might
send the Sanders/Warren true believers
careening off on a “We told you so!”
rampage, arguing — convincingly only to
other believers — that Virginians chose a
conservative
Republican
because
Northam, although progressive, was insufficiently so. Then they could continue
making “single-payer” (governmentdispensed) health-care progressivism’s
central promise to a nation in which
157 million people happily get their
health-care plans from their employers.
So, if Gillespie wins, Republicans elsewhere will conclude that the derangement of their party does not hinder its
prospering. If the Democrat wins, many
progressives will be secretly as unhappy
as the Trumpians who, like those progressives, will argue that their man lost
because he was inconsistently and insincerely enthusiastic about his party’s most
off-putting faction.
es, it’s a very big deal that
Republicans Jeff Flake, Bob
Corker, John McCain and
George W. Bush are now ready
to take on what Flake rightly calls
President Trump’s “reckless, outrageous and undignified” behavior.
Their voices are the sound of the
protective political wall around the
White House cracking.
But the other side to this story is as
disturbing as the signs of open rebellion are heartening: Both Corker and
Flake have chosen not to run for
reelection because they know that
their views are out of line with those of
the GOP’s electorate.
Flake was plainly on track to lose
reelection next year. The Republican
congressional leadership, far from embracing Flake and Corker, moved immediately to sidestep any challenges
to their “complicity” and get on with
tax cuts, their sacred cause.
And House Republicans responded
to the crisis in their party by announcing — a new investigation of Hillary
Clinton’s emails! “Saturday Night
Live” writers, take note.
Trump, for once, was not deluded in
suggesting in a Wednesday morning
tweet that Flake speaks for a decided
minority in their party: “Jeff Flake,
with an 18% approval rating in Arizona, said ‘a lot of my colleagues have
spoken out.’ Really, they just gave me a
standing O!”
Flake’s address on the floor of the
Senate coincided with the release of an
important study by the Pew Research
Center that helped explain Trump’s
self-confidence. The report analyzed
the United States’ political landscape
and offered an updated typology of the
key partisan and ideological groups in
the American electorate. The model
for the typology was first created in
1987 by the late Andrew Kohut, one of
his generation’s wisest students of
public opinion, and Pew has regularly
revised it to correspond with new
political circumstances.
Pew described four GOP groups:
Core Conservatives, 34 percent of registered voters who call themselves
Republican or lean that way; Country
First Conservatives, 15 percent; Market Skeptic Republicans (22 percent);
and New Era Enterprisers (18 percent). The remainder of Republicans
scatter among other groups in Pew’s
typology.
The first two groups are particularly
loyal to the GOP. Core Conservatives
are who you think they are: reasonably
affluent voters favoring small government and low taxes. Country First
Conservatives are the folks Trumpist
agitator Stephen K. Bannon loves:
older social conservatives deeply skeptical of immigration and the United
States’ global involvement.
If Flake represents anyone, given
his ideology, it would be Core Conservatives. But as of this summer,
when the survey on which the study is
based was undertaken, 93 percent of
Core Conservatives approved of
Trump’s job performance and 90 percent had a favorable view of him. If this
group stays with Trump, most congressional Republicans will, too. Country
Firsters gave Trump an 84 percent
approval rating and a 93 percent personal favorable rating.
But it’s not just the most faithful
Republicans who stuck with Trump.
Market Skeptic Republicans, who take
a dim view of “powerful interests” and
believe businesses make too much
profit, gave Trump a 66 percent approval rating. Among New Era Enterprisers — economic conservatives who
are moderate on immigration and U.S.
global engagement and relatively liberal on social issues — Trump’s approval stood at 63 percent.
Trump’s GOP numbers may well
have deteriorated in the months since
the survey was completed, and even
then, there were warning signs in the
answers Republicans gave to a question Pew asked about how Trump
“conducts himself as president.”
Among Core Conservatives, only
41 percent liked the way Trump conducts himself, 51 percent had mixed
feelings and 8 percent disliked his
conduct. For Country First Conservatives, the numbers are 51 percent like,
39 percent mixed and 9 percent dislike. Given how outrageous Trump’s
behavior is, those “dislike” figures are
still very low.
His ratings were worse in the other
GOP groups: Only 24 percent of Market Skeptic Republicans liked Trump’s
behavior while 26 percent disliked it.
And in the younger New Era group,
Trump was underwater: Only 23 percent liked Trump’s behavior; 39 percent disliked it.
Trump’s GOP opponents can still
hope to demonstrate that the negative
impact of how the president operates
matters far more than any ideological
victories he might deliver to conservatives. Trump daily proves Corker’s
point that it’s foolish to expect he’ll
ever change.
But it will be an uphill struggle.
Republicans such as Flake and Corker
have reason to worry their party is so
profoundly Trumpified that it is lost to
them. At some point, they may just
have to walk away.

ussia’s cyber-meddling in the
2016 U.S. presidential election
has been accompanied by what
U.S. and European experts describe as a worrisome Kremlin campaign
to rewrite the rules for global cyberspace.
A draft of a Russian proposal for a new
“United Nations Convention on Cooperation in Combating Information Crimes”
was recently shown to me by a security
expert who obtained a copy. The 54-page
document includes 72 proposed articles,
covering collection of Internet traffic by
authorities, “codes of conduct” for cyberspace and “joint investigation” of malicious activity. The language sounds bureaucratic and harmless, but experts say
that if adopted, it would allow Russia to
squeeze cyberspace even more.
The Kremlin’s proposed convention
would enhance the ability of Russia and
other authoritarian nations to control
communication within their countries,
and to gain access to communications in
other countries, according to several
leading U.S. cyber experts. They described the latest draft as part of Moscow’s push over the past decade to shape
the legal architecture of what Russian
strategists like to call the “information
space.”
The proposal was floated by the Kremlin early this year, and outlined in an
April 4 article in Kommersant. The
Moscow daily reported that the Russian
Foreign Ministry had described the convention as an “innovative” and “universal” attempt to replace the 2001 Budapest
Convention, which has been signed by
the United States and 55 other countries
but rejected by Russia. Kommersant said
“Russian authorities saw a threat to the
sovereignty of the country” in the Budapest pact.
Russia’s bid to rewrite global rules
through the United Nations was
matched by a personal pitch on cybercooperation in July from President Vladimir Putin to President Trump at the
Group of 20 summit in Hamburg. Putin
“vehemently denied” to Trump that Russia had interfered in the U.S. election,
Trump said in a tweet. Trump then
floated a mystifying proposal: “Putin & I
discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be
guarded and safe.”
Trump’s suggestion that America join
Russia in cyberdefense provoked an uproar in the United States. One Twitter
commentator wrote: “This is like the FBI
asking the Mafia to form an anti-crime
unit together.”
The White House quickly backtracked
after Trump’s tweet. Homeland security
adviser Tom Bossert told reporters on
July 14: “I don’t believe that the U.S. and
Russia have come to that point yet in
cyberspace. And until we do, we wouldn’t
have the conversation about partnership.”
Many U.S. cyber experts share
Bossert’s view that although any formal
treaty or partnership with Moscow now
is unwise, quiet confidence-building discussions might be useful. Those could
include military-to-military or technical
contacts to explore how to avoid catastrophic cyber-events that might cripple
strategic systems or pose systemic risk.
U.S. and Russian officials had maintained such a dialogue to explore norms
for the Internet, but so far it has been a
dead end. The Russians were led by
Andrey Krutskikh, a foreign ministry
official who is Putin’s cyber adviser; and
on the American side, by Christopher
Painter, who was White House cyber
chief under President Barack Obama and
then cyber coordinator at the State
Department, a post he left this year.
These contacts are sensible, but they
have withered as U.S.-Russia relations
have deteriorated. A high-level working
group stopped meeting after Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014. A U.N.-sponsored
Group of Governmental Experts on Information Security broke up in June after
failing to reach consensus on measures
for improving information security. Putin’s bilateral proposal at Hamburg
quickly disappeared after Trump’s premature endorsement.
The Russians, meanwhile, continue
their campaign to regulate cyberspace on
their terms, by mobilizing allies to support their alternative to the Budapest
convention; Moscow’s biggest complaint
is that the Budapest framework, in Article 32 (b), allows the owners of data to
control its use, rather than governments.
Moscow wants state control of information.
Russia got some global support for its
effort at a September gathering in Xiamen, China, of the so-called BRICS
countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China
and South Africa. In their formal declaration, the countries “recognize the need
for a universal regulatory binding instrument on combatting the criminal use of
ICTs [information and communications
technologies] under the UN auspices.”
The countries “acknowledge the initiative” of Russia in seeking such a binding
pact.
If the events of the past year have
taught us anything, it’s that Russia views
information as a decisive political weapon and wants to control this potential
battle space. The global regulatory side
of this contest gets little attention, but it
could help determine whether open information flows survive in the age of the
autocrats.

Creeps depend on the
lie of the ‘big break’
BY
G ILLIAN B ROCKELL
O
ne spring evening in 2004,
director and screenwriter
James Toback sat in my section
at a French restaurant in New
York City. I was a 23-year-old waitress.
“Actress, singer or dancer?” he asked
me.
“Writer,” I said.
If you’ve read the recent Los Angeles
Times article in which dozens of women allege that Toback sexually harassed
them after promising to help them
break into the entertainment industry,
you can guess how the rest of our
conversation went. He gave me his
number.
At the end of my shift, I raced home
to tell my roommate what had happened. We’d arrived from Texas the
previous fall on a Greyhound bus. It
had been a rough six months. We were
sharing a fifth-floor walk-up studio
with more leaks when it rained than
we had pots and pans. We could barely
afford the rent. I’d just graduated with
an English degree and had no idea how
to start a writing career.
So I felt lucky when this man, who
had been nominated for a screenwriting Oscar, said he could tell I had
something special and wanted to help.
My roommate and I rented his movie “Black and White,” like he’d told me
to do. One of the first scenes depicted a
graphic ménage à trois in Central Park.
That’s when I noticed the weird bowling-ball sensation in my stomach — a
feeling with which I’d only recently
become acquainted.
Two months earlier, a wealthy painter who’d also sat in my section at the
restaurant asked me to pose for him at
his home in the Hamptons. He promised he wasn’t a creep. He invited me to
a prestigious gallery for a reception
celebrating his work, introducing me
to his wife and his friends as his “new
muse.” So I agreed to pose, but made
my boundaries clear. I thought that
would protect me.
It didn’t. He was a creep. Thirteen
years later, I’m still ashamed of what
happened, how easily I was talked out
of boundaries.
So, with that new knowledge that,
yes, men decades my senior would
actually try to have sex with me, I
balked at calling Toback.
I regretted it for years.
I cursed myself for not having the
guts to call, instead of praising my gut
for telling me not to. Even if he was as
lecherous as I suspected, so what?
Shouldn’t I have at least heard what he
had to say? Shouldn’t I be willing to
take some risks to achieve my dream?
It’s this impossible choice that men
like Toback rely on. They know you
believe they are the gatekeepers to a
rewarding career. This can happen in
any industry, but it’s particularly acute
in creative industries, which lack a
formalized career path like law and
medicine, and are awash with stories
of being “plucked from obscurity” after
a chance encounter.
Rosario Dawson was a teenager sitting on a neighborhood stoop when the
director of “Kids” walked by. Ellen
Pompeo was a bartender when a casting agent spotted her. J.K. Rowling’s
“Harry Potter” manuscript was rejected by a dozen publishers before she got
a call from Bloomsbury.
But what if, instead of good-guy
Barry Cunningham, Rowling had been
contacted by the co-founder of Weinstein Books? What would she, or
should she, have done? If she had said
no, would the world ever have heard
her voice?
Now, I’m not nearly as talented as
Rowling. But these past few weeks,
hearing account after account from
women pressured to trade access to
their bodies for access to success, I
wonder what creative geniuses the
world has missed out on. What performances, what screenplays, what
novels don’t exist because talented
women gave up after encounters with
the wrong gatekeepers?
I left New York a few years after
Toback came to my table, still broke,
much more dejected and with a drinking problem for good measure. I gave
up on “the dream” and moved back to
Texas. It’s a common tale, I know. My
eyes are rolling, too. And, to be clear, I
don’t blame it on the screenwriter, or
the painter. I don’t know if I could have
“made it” back then even if I’d met the
right gatekeeper.
Until the Los Angeles Times published its article, I was still unsure
about Toback’s true intentions when
he gave me his number. But I stopped
regretting not calling him in my early
30s, when I was years sober and had
started writing again.
What I found out then, what I wish I
had known at 23, is that there’s a slow
route to the writing life, too, where the
asymmetry of power isn’t so steep. I got
my first paid writing gig through a
woman I used to waitress with at that
French restaurant. Since then, my slow
route has been paved with gradstudent debt, internships, endless
email pitches and deep friendships.
I didn’t need a Toback. The whole
concept of needing a “big break” is a
lie. We all get hundreds of small opportunities that can build into something
great. And we don’t have to submit
ourselves to dangerous men to find
them.

in one of the booths — he is wearing a
bourgeois disguise: gray suit, maroon tie
— supposedly is “fighting for the violent
MS-13 killer gangs” involving many Central American immigrants. The U.S. president says so, as does the gubernatorial
candidate of the president’s party.
In two weeks, Virginia will have the
United States’ most consequential election since 50 weeks ago. Then, this
became the only Southern state Hillary
Clinton carried (by 5 points). Today’s
campaign dramatizes the difficult calculation confronting people who want the
Republican Party restored as a vehicle for
conservatism but who know that this
requires expunging the political style —
exuberantly fact-free accusations and
screeds — exemplified by the “MS-13”
tweet.
Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam won the Democratic nomination by handily defeating
(by 10 points) a darling of the Bernie
Sanders/Elizabeth Warren (both endorsed the darling) tendency in the Democratic primary, which attracted 177,000
more voters than the Republican primary
did. Now, however, Northam is benefiting
from his opponent’s intractable dilemma,
that of all Republicans who remember
life before 2016 and want to do what they
are told cannot be done: Turn the clock
back. Virginia’s incumbent Democratic
governor, Terry McAuliffe, is popular.
Virginia is purple trending blue: Democrats have carried it in three consecutive
presidential races, they have won three of
the past four gubernatorial contests, and
both U.S. senators are Democrats. President Barack Obama has campaigned to
energize African American voters. And
the Republican candidate, Ed Gillespie,
has a problem residing across the Potomac.
In 2014, Gillespie — former counselor
to President George W. Bush, former
Republican National Committee chair,
adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign, lobbyist extraordinaire — came within a
whisker (under 18,000 votes) of defeating
an incumbent U.S. senator, Mark Warner (D). This year, however, Gillespie
barely defeated a full-throated Trumpian
in the Republican primary. Gillespie is
intelligent, temperate, experienced and
happiest when talking about government
policies. These attributes are, in the incandescent eyes of his party’s now-Trumpian
base, defects of swamp creatures. So, he is
gingerly tiptoeing across the treacherous
terrain of Trumpian Republican politics.
This involves stoking the anger of those
people who seem happiest when furious,
but without infuriating everyone else.
He did the former with dishonest
MS-13 ads featuring tattooed darkskinned men (“Kill, rape, control.”) and
accusing Northam of refusing to crack
down on “sanctuary cities,” of which
Virginia has none. Gillespie’s admirers
say he is better than he sounds. Others,
remembering Mark Twain (who popularized the quip “Wagner’s music is better
than it sounds”), say that in democratic
politics — the politics of persuasive rhetoric — a candidate is the way he chooses to
sound.
Recently, however, Gillespie has been

A Catholic student group at
Georgetown University that promotes the benefits of traditional
marriage risks losing its funding
and other university benefits after being accused of fostering
hatred and intolerance.
Love Saxa advocates for marriage as “a monogamous and
permanent union between a man
and a woman,” the group states in
its constitution. That definition
of marriage is in line with that
espoused by the Catholic Church,

Trolling Trump:
Activism’s new angle
A
n hour before dawn on Oct. 6, Robby
Diesu directed a trailer onto the Mall near
the Washington Monument. At a spot
with a good sightline to the White House,
he and a small crew set up a 160-square-foot video
screen, hooked it to a laptop and hit play.
What ran on the screen for the next 12 hours
was a relentless Jumbotron rewind of Donald
Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” tape,” the
hot-mic remarks that had roiled the 2016 campaign one year earlier — complete with audio and
subtitles.

“The point of actions is to create conflict with

Diesu, a professional protest organizer with the
DC Action Lab.
This is Washington protest in the age of Trump,
when public actions increasingly combine performance art and catchy visuals to toss a made-togo-viral insult straight at the president. It is
trolling as dissent.
In the year since Trump won, activists have
expanded the age-old Washington reliables of
marches and rallies with more-unconventional
ploys: queer dance parties, high-wire banner
stunts, animated graffiti projected onto the walls
of Trump’s Washington hotel. In volume and style,
the digital age and the president’s own pugilistic
instincts have created a unique moment in movements.

primary reason is
the four-way division of

But there’s another

The area’s corporate leadership

to succeed where others failed —
and not just with Metro.
The new player is the Greater

As it turned out, those instructions would form the arc of her

To change minds, activists try to turn heads
PROTEST FROM B1
“There was outrage against
[Richard] Nixon and against
[Lyndon] Johnson, but those protests were mostly against policy,”
said Michael Kazin, a historian of
social movements at Georgetown
University. “Now the focus is to a
great extent on the president’s
personality. They are responding
to his own way of attacking people by attacking him.”
Even traditional protests seek
a visually viral taunt. The Women’s March, which drew hundreds
of thousands to the Mall a day
after Trump’s inauguration, was
forever branded by the thousands
of hand-knit pink triangular hats
worn as a defiant symbol of
Trump’s “grab them” comment.
A towering inflatable chicken
with Trumpian Orange hair made
an appearance outside the White
House in August (get yours on
eBay for $498). After the president announced he was pulling
the United States out of the Paris
climate accord in June, Diesu
helped sneak dozens of protesters
into the lobby of Trump International Hotel, where, at 7 a.m., they
pulled out alarm clocks and air
horns to “wake up” guests to the
dangers of global warming.
The hotel, emblazoned with
the president’s name, has
emerged as a second White
House, one without fences and
Secret Service agents. Pedestrians have been known to shout
“Shame!” at diners at the hotel’s
sidewalk tables. Marchers frequently end the day by dumping
their signs at the hotel door. And
D.C. artist Robin Bell has projected animated jeers onto the building, including “Pay Trump bribes
here” and “The president of the
United States is a known racist
and a Nazi sympathizer.”
The video screen on the Mall
was the brainchild of UltraViolet,
a national women’s advocacy
group that wanted to remind
people about Trump’s remarks,
which he later described as “foolish” and dismissed as “lockerroom talk.”
The group often tries to reach
Trump in a way that gets under
his famously thin skin, said chief
campaigns officer Karin Roland.
The group once purchased a 30second ad in West Palm Beach,
Fla., while Trump was staying at
his Mar-a-Lago resort. The commercial — which aired during
“Saturday Night Live” — displayed numbers showing that access to abortion polls more favorably than Trump does.
As the anniversary of The
Washington Post’s publication of
the “Access Hollywood” tape approached, Ultraviolet considered
planning a large rally or march
but ultimately decided that loud-
ly recycling Trump’s own words
would be more powerful.
“One of the reasons trolling
him is so valuable strategically is
that he does react to it,” Roland
said. “You can influence the latest
thing he says on Twitter or what
he says by getting in his Twitter
feed or on the shows that he
watches.”
As many liberal activists do,
UltraViolet contacted DC Action
Lab, which has helped plan about
75 anti-Trump actions since his
election last November. Diesu,
who can quote National Park
Service and Secret Service regulations by heart and is on a firstname basis with many of the
officers who patrol the protests,
advised Roland on where to park
the screen, applied for the permit
and rented the equipment. (The
same screen was used outside
Nationals Park that night to show
a Washington Nationals playoff
game.)
Other protests take a guerrilla
approach. In January, Greenpeace sent seven climbers up a
30-story construction crane to
unfurl a 70-foot “Resist” banner
that, visually, seemed to hang
directly over the White House. It
was an image the activists knew
would be irresistible as a media
meme.
“With the framing of that im-

age, we controlled our own message,” said James Brady, a District-based Greenpeace activist.
“It was not possible to re-caption
that photo.”
Two days before the inauguration, a dancing flash mob of up to
200 convened near Vice President Pence’s temporarily rented
home in Washington, filling the
streets with Beyoncé’s music, biodegradable glitter and rainbow
banners.
“It’s a way for the queer community to occupy space and say
we are here,” said Firas Nasr, who
has organized what he calls queer
dance parties in front of the
White House, the Trump hotel,
and the homes of Senate Majority
Leader Mitch McConnell and
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
The diverse modes of protest
have given activists a larger variety of options to keep up with a
sometimes-exhausting variety of
controversies coming out of the
Trump administration. A coalition of groups opposed to the
president’s proposed ban on U.S.
entry by citizens of several majority-Muslim countries decided last
week that a conventional rally
with speakers and signs near the
White House would be the most
attractive for the families and
elderly protesters the organizers
hoped to attract from across the
country.
“A traditional rally is the most
comfortable,” said Noor Mir, a DC
Action Lab member who organized a gathering at Lafayette
Square that drew a crowd to
within a block of the White
House. “It tends to be the best for
folks that are only here for a few
hours to protest.”
In September, though, Mir consulted on a splashier demonstration. Immigration advocates —
angered when the administration
canceled the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals program —
set up an enormous paper effigy
of Attorney General Jeff Sessions
and then gleefully knocked it over
as if he were a deposed dictator.
The new age of protesting has
been good for the old art of
protest-puppet making.
“It’s always been the case: A
picture is worth a thousand
words, and a puppet is worth a
thousand times that,” said Nadine
Bloch, the Takoma Park resident
who made the ersatz Sessions and
who has been one of Washington’s go-to makers of protest puppets since the Reagan era. “And if
you can roll it down the street,
smash it, it can be worth 1,000
times more.”
And if one of those makes the
presidential Twitter feed, consider Trump trolled.

Catholic student group at Georgetown risks funding
STUDENTS FROM B1
eventually comes before them.
“I suppose the question for
Georgetown is whether they
think Catholic kids can still be
Catholic there,” said Chad
Pecknold, a theology professor at
Catholic University.
About half of the student body
identifies as Catholic, according
to the university. Seventy-five
percent of Catholics ages 18 to 29
support same-sex marriage,
compared with 22 percent who
oppose it, according to the Pew
Research Center.
Two students lodged a complaint against Love Saxa, arguing that the group’s definition of
marriage violates university
standards governing sanctioned
student organizations and demanding that it be defunded and
removed as an officially sanctioned student group. The complaint stops short of calling for it
to be banned.
Student organizations, per
university rules, are ineligible
for funding and other benefits if
they “foster hatred or intolerance of others because of their
race, nationality, gender, religion or sexual preference.”
The complaint, filed this
month by Jasmin Ouseph, a
junior from Fort Lauderdale,
Fla., and Chad Gasman, a sophomore from Los Angeles, argues
that Love Saxa’s definition of
marriage excludes and dehu-

manizes individuals in the LGBT
community.
A hearing is scheduled Monday before the Student Activities
Commission. While the decision
on whether to sanction the
group will be made by the
student-run commission, Love
Saxa can take the issue to the
university administration on appeal.
For now, the university appears to see no conflict between
its values and those of Love Saxa.
“As a Catholic and Jesuit institution, Georgetown listens deeply and discerningly to the plurality of voices that exist among our
students, faculty and staff and is
committed to the care of each
member of our community,” said
Rachel Pugh, a university
spokeswoman.
“We strongly support a climate that continues to provide
students with new and deeper
contexts for engaging with our
Catholic tradition and identity,”
Pugh added. “Love Saxa is one of
many groups operating on campus with positions that affirm
the teachings of the Catholic
Church. We also support a climate that is welcoming to all
students and supporting of our
LGBTQ communities.”
“Our Catholic and Jesuit identity . . . certainly affirms Love
Saxa’s existence,” said the Rev.
Mark Bosco, vice president for
mission and ministry at Georgetown.
Amelia Irvine, a junior from
Phoenix and the president of
Love Saxa, said she was taken
aback by the accusations but
insists the group is in the right.
Love Saxa, which has about 30
active members, “promote[s]
healthy relationships on campus
through cultivating a proper understanding of sex, gender, marriage, and family” among students through hosting discussions, lectures, campaigns and
other activities, according to the
group’s website.
Irvine had written an op-ed in
the Hoya campus newspaper last
month, titled “Confessions of a
College Virgin,” in which she
broadly discussed chastity and
abstinence but also defended
Love Saxa’s definition of marriage that excludes same-sex
couples.
“We’re not trying to shame
anyone for their choices or their
decisions or who they are,” she
said. “We’re trying to promote
what we think healthy relationships are, what we think sexual
integrity is.
“I do believe we’re in the
right,” Irvine added. “We’re
called Love Saxa. We’re not
about hatred or making people
feel less than they are.”
Others, however, think the
group is discriminatory, intoler-

ant and hateful.
Love Saxa’s promotion of heterosexual marriage discriminates against gay relationships
and is homophobic, Gasman,
president of Georgetown University Pride, told the Hoya.
“When they deny certain individuals who are queer access to
this ideal standard of a relationship, they immediately say that
all queer relationships are not as
valid as heterosexual relationships,” Gasman said. “They also
specifically call homosexuality
and any non-heterosexual view a
distorted view of human sexuality, which is directly homophobic.”
Georgetown often claims to be
the most gay-friendly Catholic
university in the nation and yet
continues to fund groups like
Love Saxa that are intolerant of
homosexual and queer relationships, Gasman said.
The complaint will “force
Georgetown University to actually be queer-friendly and queeraffirming,” Gasman said.
If “the university continues to
recognize Love Saxa and provide
it with official access to benefits
after this whole situation, I think
it may cause me to question what
values the university actually
stands for,” said Ouseph.
Last Friday, the Hoya’s independent editorial board sided
with the complaint, calling on
the university to “defund intolerance.”

“Love Saxa does not deserve
the benefit of university recognition. As a group whose mission advocates against equal
rights for the LGBTQ community, Love Saxa fosters intolerance,” the board wrote, adding
that the group is “antithetical to
what a university club should
be.”
The editorial board also argued that while other campus
Catholic organizations may
share Love Saxa’s definition of
marriage, Love Saxa differentiates itself “by actively and vigorously promoting this definition
— one that is directly intolerant
of the LGBTQ community.”
Irvine, however, said that she
is stumped as to why Love Saxa
has been singled out.
“I would expect something
like this at a public school or an
areligious school,” she said. “It’s
surprising to me. . . . All the
Jesuits have the same idea of
marriage as us, [and] no one is
accusing them of promoting hatred.”
Irvine agrees with the group’s
accusers that next week’s hearing will be a litmus test for how
tolerant the university community really is.
“If we cannot safely advocate
for beliefs synonymous with
Catholic social teaching, then no
group at Georgetown can be
certain of its security,” Love Saxa
said in a statement on Facebook.

with victims of violence and their
families, as well as to those committing the crimes. That’s part of a
neighborhood stabilization concept designed to prevent retaliation shootings.
The office will go further in
reaching out to at-risk adults and
youths and will allow McFadden
to draw on resources of other
agencies that work with juvenile
offenders, help with employment
and deal with psychiatric issues.
McFadden’s team will identify
those “at high risk of participating
in or becoming a victim of violent
crime” to prevent future violence.
Bowser (D) said McFadden and
his team will “focus not only on
law enforcement but on people
investment. They’ll be going out in
neighborhoods, sometimes in difficult situations or at night, to
make sure we’re engaging the people who have demonstrated they
will commit violent crimes.”
The mayor said that “disrupting
violence will save people from
making mistakes and will save
people from being victims on our
streets.”

After-school program
cultivates green thumbs
BY
R ACHAEL P ACELLA
The sound of the Rev. Johnny
Calhoun’s voice filled the classroom, echoed by a group of students from Monarch Academy in
Annapolis, Md.
“We are leapers, one and all; we
are leapers, big and small; we are
leapers because we’re smart; we
are leapers, we’re ready to start,”
Calhoun said.
They’re “leapers” because they’re
a part of LEAP — Learning and
Exploring After School Program.
LEAP is an environmentally focused after-school program for elementary students that kicked off
at Monarch Academy earlier this
month. That chant will start off
every session of the program,
which is run by Our Creeks & Conservancy, an Annapolis nonprofit
with the goal of engaging and educating diverse communities about
environmental conservation and
sustainability.
Calhoun is the group’s executive
director and also a pastor at
Mount Olive African Methodist
Episcopal Church in Annapolis.
The vision of Our Creeks & Conservancy is environmental ownership, he said — particularly for
underserved communities. The
idea was spurred by a desire to
connect the African American
community with the environmental community.
“Our community is environmentally conscious, but not environmentally active,” he said.
And now, Calhoun has a program to get in on the ground level
by exposing elementary students
of all races to nature.
The program matters because
people all breathe the same air,
drink the same water and stand on
the same planet, Calhoun said.
There are also a variety of career
opportunities for students in the
environmental community — students might make a business of
their own or seek out a career in
conservation.
LEAP is Calhoun’s latest environmental initiative, but it’s not
his first — he helped bring an
environmentally focused summer
youth program for 16- to 24-yearolds to the county in 2015, followed
by a Junior Watershed Stewards
club at Annapolis High School.
The Junior Watershed Stewards club serves as a pipeline,
bringing students to the summer
youth program, called Restoring
the Environment and Developing
Youth, or READY. Through that
program, young people earn $10
an hour to learn about environmental stewardship and then to
work on projects such as maintaining rain gardens or ridding a
creek of invasive phragmites. The
pilot program for READY took
place in 2015, when 10 people
worked for four weeks. It doubled
in size the next summer, with 40
people working for eight weeks.
READY volunteered its services
those first two years, but this year
it became a social enterprise designed to earn money to become
self-sustaining and support the
Junior Watershed Stewards program and LEAP.
LEAP is an extension of that
pipeline. It aims to tackle something Calhoun calls nature deficit
disorder — a lack of nature in a

been exposed to violence.
“You see them at every funeral,”
McFadden said. “It’s the same kids
over and over. That’s what this is
all about: saving lives.”
McFadden said his group will
seek to help people affected by
many issues, such as economic
blight, in wards hit hardest by
crime — Wards 5, 7 and 8. He also
said he wants to do more to connect people who have mental illness with appropriate treatment.
Many of the efforts taken on by
the office are already underway,

they needed to make up for losses
created after an executive order
from President Trump eliminated
some cost-sharing with companies to help low-income customers.
The price hikes approved for
CareFirst Blue Cross and Kaiser
Permanente come less than a
week before the start of open
enrollment when customers can
decide whether to stick with their
current insurers or switch.
About 25,000 Maryland residents would feel some financial
impact from the new rates if they
choose to stick with their current
coverage, state regulators said.
The subsidy change is one more
shift since late summer that adds
to ongoing consumer confusion,
according to leaders of insurance
exchanges
and
enrollmentassistance organizations around
the country.
The Trump administration had
signaled it wanted to end costsharing reduction payments
known as CSRs that are made to
insurance companies to help absorb the costs of discounted deductibles and co-payments the
companies are required by law to
offer some consumers.
Some states anticipated the administration change and told insurers to propose rates for 2018
assuming they wouldn’t get the
subsidies. Maryland did not take
that tack. When President Trump
announced earlier this month
that he was ending CSRs, the state
scrambled to respond to rate requests from CareFirst and Kaiser.
“We didn’t want to arbitrarily
increase rates a month or so ago
without having to,” said Maryland
Insurance Administration Commissioner Al Redmer. “We erred
on the side of the consumer to
keep prices as low as possible for
as long as we could.”
On Wednesday, the state gave
CareFirst approval to raise premiums by 58.2 percent for its silver
HMO plan and 76 percent for its
silver PPO plan — both slightly
less than what the insurers sought
to make up for lost federal payments. Kaiser’s premiums for its
silver HMO plan will go up by
43.4 percent, which is 10 percentage points higher than the company had sought.
Even if the CSR payments had
remained in place, CareFirst said
it believed it would need increases
for its silver HMO and PPO plans
of 31.4 percent and 52.1 percent,
respectively, while Kaiser had

person’s life. Having that exposure
to nature not only makes one
calmer, but also helps one’s ability
to concentrate, Calhoun said. He is
hoping as the program continues,
the test scores and behavior of the
elementary students will improve.
After a successful pilot program
held this spring at the Mount Olive
Community Life Center with a
dozen students from Mills-Parole
Elementary School, LEAP has
moved into Monarch Academy,
where 16 students will meet twice
a week to receive homework help
and lessons on a broad swath of
subjects Calhoun calls STREAM:
science, technology, reading, environment, arts and math.
The program’s focus on environmental literacy will lend support to
those other subjects by providing
hands-on opportunities to apply
the concepts, Calhoun said.
LEAP now has a dedicated
space on the bottom floor of the
Monarch Academy, with shells
and terrariums already on one table and other objects such as faux
sea turtles filling the room.
Monarch students will meet on
Mondays and Thursdays, and a
separate group of students will
meet at the Key School on Saturdays, in partnership with the Centro de Ayuda, or Center of Help.
On the first day at Monarch,
students met to discuss mindfulness, had a snack, got help with
homework, played dodgeball to
get moving and then completed an
activity using tangrams. Building
the student’s ability to pay attention is key, LEAP director Tatiana
Klein said.
“Attention is the door for learning, so you have to develop attention,” Klein said.
LaCreshia Batteast, a specialeducation teacher at Monarch
who is also certified in high school
biology, also helps teach the LEAP
group. She is looking forward to
teaching students about water
quality and environmental literacy, as well as showing them the
variety of careers students can
pursue to help animals.
Thursday was a rainy day — the
program has planned visits from
Master Watershed Stewards,
aquarium officials and other activities to expose the children to nature in the future. The program
will have a garden that students
will learn to maintain and an
aquarium filled with African
cichlids, Calhoun said.
Ultimately, Calhoun wants to
grow the after-school program
from two days a week to five, and
from two elementary schools to
every elementary school in the
county.
sought an increase for its silver
HMO plan of 22.7 percent.
The federal payments that were
eliminated have been the more
obscure of two types of subsidies
created by the sprawling 2010
health-care law to help Americans
afford coverage if they cannot get
such benefits through a job.
The better-known subsidies
help lower the monthly premiums
owed by nearly 85 percent of the
roughly 10 million Americans
with ACA coverage.
The second subsidies to support lower deductibles and copayments were targeted to help
individuals making between
around $12,000 and $29,700 annually. Customers eligible by law
for those discounts will continue
to receive them under the law, but
companies lost the federal help
they got for offering that coverage.
Maryland is part of a multistate lawsuit filed against the
Trump administration to rein-
state the payments to insurers. On
Wednesday, a federal judge in
Northern California denied the
states’ request to require the
Trump administration to continue the CSR payments while the
case is decided.
Redmer said if the court ultimately rules in states’ favor and
the CSRs are restored, Maryland
will “look for mechanisms to
make whole anyone who has been
adversely affected by this.”
Nearly all of the 96,000 Marylanders who previously purchased the individual silver plans
receive some financial assistance
to help them pay their premiums
based on an income sliding scale.
Regulators estimate around
25,000 of them would end up
paying more out of pocket due to
the rate increases if they stick
with their same plans for 2018.
State officials are encouraging
those consumers to shop for other
plans on the state-run exchange
as well as consider looking at
plans sold off the marketplace.
Maryland has tried to mitigate
the financial pain felt by consumers, but it can’t rectify the confusion these changes cause.
This is what worries Ceci Connolly, president of Alliance of
Community Health Plans, whose
members include Kaiser.
With the mixed messages
around health-care policy out of
Washington and the White House
already declaring ACA dead, she
fears some consumers will be too
flummoxed to even enroll.
“Health insurance is already a
complicated thing to navigate,
and all of the confusion and debate has made it very difficult for
anyone to know what’s going on,”
she said.
Open enrollment in Maryland
will still begin on Nov. 1 and end
on Dec. 15, a much tighter window
than previous years.

High-powered business alliance aims to tackle Metro and regional transit issues
TRANSIT FROM B1
helping to broker an elusive
regional consensus on
governance and funding. Its
501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status
means it can’t lobby, but it can
pursue what it calls “advocacy,”
and intends to do so.
“Bold action is required to
address the immediate and longterm structural challenges that
have plagued the [Metro]
system,” the group said in a
report issued Thursday on
transportation in the region.
“Critical decisions about
investment and operations have
been deferred or diluted for
years.”
The timing is good. Former
U.S. transportation secretary
Ray LaHood is about to release a
report with his
recommendations on what to do
about Metro. He is expected to
lay the groundwork for
legislation on the transit system
to be taken up by the Maryland
and Virginia legislatures in
January.
But Metro’s problems, while
critical, are only a small part of
the partnership’s plans. The 30page report outlines a long-term
vision to improve the entire
transportation network in the
“super region” stretching from
Baltimore to Richmond. It urges
more funding, more regional
cooperation and more
innovation.
The report makes pointed
warnings about the risk of
inaction on transportation.
According to current
projections, it says, traffic delays
in the “super region” will
increase by 50 percent by 2040.
The region must find a
whopping $176 billion in new
funds to pay for transportation
in the next 23 years, on top of
the $308 billion already
planned, according to the report.
That works out to a need for
more than $7 billion a year —
which, coincidentally, is exactly
what the report estimates as the
cost to the region from
congestion in “wasted time,
money and productivity.”
The region also risks losing
talented young workers because
of traffic.
“Two-thirds of millennials in
the Washington area say they
would consider moving out of
the region, citing ‘horrendous
traffic’ as a major factor,” it says.
A regional approach is
necessary partly because so
many people cross state or
county boundaries on their daily
commutes. The number of
people commuting daily from
the Baltimore area to the
Washington area is 155,000 —
with nearly 80,000 commuting
the other way.
“In a truly connected region, a
patient in Alexandria could
easily participate in a research
study at Johns Hopkins; a
college student in Richmond
could take an internship with
the federal government in D.C.;
and a military family could live
together in Washington while
one spouse works at Quantico
and the other at Fort Meade,” the
report says.
As with Metro, the report says
progress is blocked by the
excessive number of governing
jurisdictions that share
responsibility for regional
transportation.
“More than 75 entities —
public and private — play a
significant decision-making or
operational role in delivering
mobility options and services for
our region,” the report says.
The report is only an initial
step toward developing a
regional plan, as its title makes
clear: “Advancing Our Region:
Preface to a Blueprint for
Regional Mobility.”
The partnership is issuing a
“Public Request for Information”
to governments and private
groups to get involved. It plans
roundtables, workshops and
other public events to collect
ideas.
It plans to move quickly on
Metro, because important
decisions are foreseen in the
next few months. Metro has
warned it needs substantial
additional funding by the start
of its next fiscal year in July.
“We’re going to have to
participate in the public
conversation [about Metro],”
said Jason Miller, a former top
economist in the Obama White
House who is now the
partnership’s chief executive.
“Some of the discussion will
have to happen before July 2018.
We won’t and can’t stay quiet
and in the background on all
things Metro for the next six to
nine months,” he said.
Miller said the big
corporations in the partnership
see transportation as a high
priority.
“This [transportation] is a
foundational issue for the CEOs
who created the partnership,”
Miller said. “Focusing on the
short list of issues that matter is
the reason that they came
together to create the
partnership, and transportation
no doubt is the one that
animates every single one of
them.”
If the chief executives on the
group’s board follow through, it
could move the needle in a way
that the region hasn’t seen
before.
The partnership enjoys some
advantages over business groups
that have been active for years
on Metro issues, such as the
Greater Washington Board of
Trade and Federal City Council.
All of its 21 members are large
employers. Together, they
employ 175,000 people in the
region.
Also, by including Baltimore
and Richmond, the partnership’s
reach extends to politically
influential areas beyond the
Washington suburbs. That could
help Metro win more support in
the state legislatures in
Maryland and Virginia.
The partnership is modeled,
in part, on similar groups of
large employers that have
helped build support for
regional solutions on
transportation and other issues
in Houston, San Francisco and
Columbus, Ohio.
It comprises the core group of
businesses that led the
Washington region’s bid to host
the 2024 Olympics. That effort
foundered, but perhaps the
group can succeed in a less
glamorous but arguably more
critical effort closer to home.

Through repeated brushes with death, her voice rings out
TRANSPLANT FROM B1
Books, an imprint of Simon and
Schuster.
Like nearly everything else
she’s done, writing it was hard. “I
did not know how challenging
reliving all of the most challenging experiences of my life would
be,” she said.
It was also difficult to incorporate the large cast of family
members, doctors and teachers.
Tillemann-Dick, who grew up
the fifth of 11 children in a
Mormon-Jewish family in Denver, is a granddaughter, on her
mother’s side, of the late congressman and Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos. Her paternal
grandmother, Nancy Dick, was
the first woman to serve as
lieutenant governor of Colorado,
and her brother Levi is running
for Congress in Aurora.
In a high, bubbly speaking
voice accompanied by expansive
hand gestures, Tillemann-Dick
described how she held out for
five years before getting her first
transplant.
Two other young women she
knew who had the operation had
died. Even if her surgery was
successful, she knew it could
damage her vocal cords. When
she finally underwent the procedure, her surgeon had to also
perform an impromptu openheart surgery. After a monthlong medically induced coma,
she awoke unable to speak. She
was terrified her singing career
was over.
It wasn’t; her vocal cords were
intact, and after months of grueling physical therapy she was
back onstage, performing and
giving TED talks about her experience.
It is hard now to watch some of
that old footage of her singing an
aria, sparkling with optimism,
unaware that two years after the
initial operation those donated
lungs would fail.
As she awaited another transplant, doctors told her family she
was unlikely to survive. She recovered from the second transplant and started singing again,
making an album with members
of the Cleveland Orchestra that
reached the top of the Billboard
classical chart.
Though Tillemann-Dick had
in the past worked in journalism
and written a blog, the idea of
writing a memoir was daunting.
But, she said, “I knew that if I
didn’t tell my story either someone else would or no one would,
and I thought that was a waste of
all these experiences.”
It turned out they weren’t over.
In 2015, as she was working on
the book, she noticed a new
freckle on her forehead; within
31/2 weeks, it was kumquat-size.
She was diagnosed with a rare
and aggressive skin cancer, likely
a result of the immunosuppressant drugs that prevent rejection
of the donated lungs. One tumor
on her face grew to be baseballsize, and the cancer spread to a
salivary gland; surgery to remove
it required cutting a nerve and
affected muscle movement on
the right side of her mouth.
The cancer was eliminated.
But the damage it caused to her
cherubic face was in a way more
emotionally traumatic than the
PH had been. At parties, people
she had known for decades did
not recognize her, and she was
rattled by how quickly her physical appearance changed.
“I think everyone’s face is their
identity — for me it was something I had relied on in my
darkest hours. This is going to
sound vain, but when I would
look in the mirror, I would say,

well, at least I still have my face.”
But in the awful way of a fire,
letting go of the physical touchstone she’d depended on turned
out to be cleansing. “I realized
that if I’d lost that, then I didn’t
have anything to worry about
anymore,” she said. “I still have
my life. I cherish my life. It
allowed me to move on, in a way.”
(It also, as she notes, gives her an
excuse to swan around in a
glamorous oversize white hat).
To her mother, Annette, a tiny,
energetic woman replenishing a
tray of cheese and glasses of
apple cider, Tillemann-Dick’s
embrace of second and third
chances is fitting. “Charity said,
‘This could make me miserable.
I’m not going to let it make me
miserable; I’m going to enjoy my
life.’ ”
She was referring to the cancer, but the sentiment could have
applied to most of the past
15 years: the diagnoses, the neardeath experiences, and losses
such as Lantos’s death in 2008
from esophageal cancer and
the death the same year of
Tillemann-Dick’s father after a
car accident.
Tillemann-Dick’s other rock is
“Charity said, ‘This could make me miserable.
I’m not going to let it make me miserable; I’m going to enjoy my life.’ ”
Annette Tillemann-Dick, Charity’s mother
her husband, Yoni Doron, an
education technology innovator
whom she married just before
the second transplant — despite
her initial insistence that he
deserved to spend his life with
someone healthy.
Those doubts returned after
her cancer surgery. Looking in
the mirror, she wondered, how’s
my husband ever going to love
me if I’m changing like this?
“He said, ‘Honey, you know I
really don’t care about this, to me
you’re just as beautiful as you
always were,’ ” she said. “Of
course it’s great to have a wife
who looks like a pageant queen,
but that’s not why he was with
me. There’s this deep bond that
comes with having experienced
so much together, and that bond
can’t be tarnished by age or scars
or transplants.”
Like the operas with which
she identifies so viscerally,
Tillemann-Dick’s own plot twists
continue. She is clear-eyed about
the fact that her ending is still
uncertain. The second transplant, which she received in 2012,
is technically in chronic rejection, though this time around the
rejection is slow and stable, and
as long as she stays generally
healthy it should last a while. She
could live into her 80s like her
grandmother (also a Holocaust
survivor), but she may not.
“Yoni and I talk about death all
the time” she said. “. . . I often
give him instructions on who he’s
to marry and how he’s to marry
when I die. . . . I’ve already beat
the odds because I’m alive, but
people die who are healthy and
who are sick. Death is as much a
part of life as birth. We’re all
going to die, and I don’t think
anyone benefits from that conversation being awkward or delayed.”
For now, she travels frequently
for singing or speaking engage-
ments. On Oct. 15, she debuted at
Boston’s Symphony Hall.
Cancer surgery added one
more unexpected twist to
Tillemann-Dick’s story: It left her
singing better than she had originally. With a voice that is unusual
in that it is both very big and very
high, she is adept at coloratura —
the fast, agile singing typical of
Rossini repertoire. But “I was
never happy with the way my
lower voice sounded. My teachers were frustrated. They told
me, ‘There’s too much tension in
your jaw.’ ”
Now, “My low voice is totally
there,” she said. “I don’t know if
it’s because of the surgery or
despite it, but it’s allowed me to
sing all these roles I’ve always
wanted to sing, and come into my
own.”
At a coaching session at the
University of Maryland at College Park this week, TillemannDick took a deep inhalation. The
words (translated from the Italian here) of the heroine from
“Adriana Lecouvreur,” by Francesco Cilea, flooded the practice
room:
Look here; I’m scarcely breathing. . . .
I’m but the humble servant of the
brilliant creator;
He offers me the words that I
impart to the heart. . . .
I’m the verse’s music, the echo of
human drama,
the fragile instrument, the lowly
hand-maiden. . . .
Timid, joyous, terrible, I’m called
Faithfulness.
My voice is just a whisper, which,
with the new day, will die.
Her voice was rich and fulgent,
and she clasped her hands as if in
supplication.
Or it could have been gratitude.

Hogan: Md. will push to Rookie firefighter injured on duty leaves hospital

Disagreements between
governor, chairman
threaten Purple Line

AND K ATHERINE S HAVER
With the Metro board under
fire for what many say is dysfunction and perceived parochialism
in its ranks, a feud among the
jurisdictions it comprises may be
its undoing.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan
(R) on Wednesday threatened to
push for the board to be disbanded if Chairman Jack Evans follows through with a threat to
block the transfer of land Maryland needs for its light-rail Purple Line.
Evans has said he will exercise
a rarely used veto to halt the
transfer if Maryland objects to a
board committee restructuring
favored by the District.
The Metro board is expected to
vote on the land swap at its
Thursday meeting.
Hogan, who has repeatedly
called for Evans to resign in
recent weeks, accused the board
chairman of “extortion” and said
that if District board members
block the land swap, Maryland
will back efforts to “disband” the
panel.
Hogan supports a separate
board restructuring proposal expected to come soon from former
U.S. transportation secretary Ray
LaHood that would oust the
current panel and replace it with
a five-member reform board for
three years to give the region
time to come up with a long-term
solution for the agency’s governance and financial problems.
“Let me just say this. It seems
as if the chairman of the [Metro]
board is attempting to practice
extortion against the state of
Maryland,” Hogan said as he
unveiled a planned $50 million
traffic signal optimization plan
in Hanover, Md. “We would take
serious action if this extortion
attempt actually took place tomorrow, but anybody involved in
that should be ashamed of themselves, and we’re not going to
allow it to happen.”
Hogan said Maryland specifically objects to a provision of the
committee restructuring proposal that would potentially lengthen Evans’s term by six months.
Evans, who declined to respond to Hogan’s comments directly, said the proposal being
voted on Thursday would not
lengthen his term. Thursday’s
vote, he said, would simply
streamline the board’s committee structure and allow for new
committee heads to take their
seats. A draft of the proposal is
available online, but it could be
amended ahead of the vote.
“All I can say is that extending
the chair’s term is not part of the
resolution tomorrow,” Evans
said.
Separately, in an interview
with WTOP-FM on Wednesday,
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D)
called for Evans to “knock it off ”
with what he called the “crazy,
insane” rhetoric.
“Talking about holding funds
back from Maryland is not appropriate,” McAuliffe said. “To
have this conversation is not
helpful. We’ve got to fix Metro.
We’ve got to act like adults in the
room.”
McAuliffe called for the board
to be shrunk to a five-member
panel, consisting of members
from each of the jurisdictions
that support Metro, along with
an elected chair, as LaHood is
proposing.
“We have got to get to a
five-person board, nonpolitical,

Gov. Larry Hogan has asked the
Metro board chairman to resign.
for three years, to come in to
make the hard, tough decisions
to get this going,” McAuliffe said.
The committee restructuring
proposal, which Evans said has
support from the majority of the
board, would shrink the number
of board subcommittees from
seven to four, while allowing
alternate board members to head
committees. In Maryland’s view,
only voting members should
serve as committee heads.
“So, I would say that’s not
going to happen, and if any of
those things were to happen
tomorrow, that I would then be
willing to go along with my
colleagues, Eleanor Holmes Norton from D.C., who said the entire
board should be disbanded,
along with Terry McAuliffe who
said the same thing, in Virginia,
and former Secretary Ray LaHood, who did a study,” Hogan
said, referring to Evans’s threat.

His next steps are hopeful
ones, though, as the 28-year-old
rookie D.C. firefighter prepared
to leave the MedStar Washington
Rehabilitation
center
Wednesday, following nearly 90
days of care that brought him
from the brink of death through
surgeries to repair damaged organs, bleeding vessels and broken bones. Though his voice, too,
is halting, the rookie firefighter
said he wants someday to return
to full duty.
“I am not scared to run into a

scared. I’m still not afraid of a
challenge. I definitely would like
to return to the house,” Smothers said at a news conference.

discussions to smooth out the
clashes between the jurisdictions
regarding the committee restructuring as well as the Purple Line
land swap.
“I’m still talking to my colleagues from the state and on the
board to try to come to some sort
of an agreement that does not
delay the Purple Line. That’s
what is most important,” Augustine said.
Augustine, who is an alternate
member of the board and thus
not expected to vote at Thursday’s meeting, declined to comment on Hogan’s statement
about disbanding the panel. Still,
he said he did not agree with
Evans’s attempts to tie the issue
of board governance to the prospect of further delaying the construction of the Purple Line.
“These are two separate issues
that should be discussed — but
not in tandem,” Augustine said.
Under the proposed deal, Metro would transfer the land rights
to properties at the New Carrollton, College Park and Silver
Spring Metro stations that are
vital to the construction of the
Purple Line, scheduled to begin
early next month. In all, those
properties are valued somewhere
between $24 million and
$37 million.
Maryland, in turn, would give
Metro the land rights to a 450space parking lot and a plot of
land,
valued
together
at
$17.1 million.

time to see if it heals.
Patients with spinal cord
damage typically see the greatest
recovery in the first three to six
months, but recovery can continue up to two years from their
injury, Gosai said.
“You shouldn’t really bet
against DJ. He is a remarkable
young man and has shown really, truly a strong healing capability,” Gosai said.
Wednesday was a day for
congratulations, as Smothers
and his father thanked strangers
who sent supportive messages
that sustained them and especially those who provided medical care and “helped save my
life,” Smothers said.
D.C. fire and EMS Chief Gregory Dean said the young man’s
recovery provides inspiration
for the whole department.
“He has impressed all of us.
Firefighter Smothers is still one
of us, and we’re excited about
that,” Dean said. “This is one of
many steps. We will be continuing down that road with him.”
The rookie’s father, Dane
Smothers Sr., whose brother is a
longtime D.C. firefighter, said he
never realized the depth of commitment from the brotherhood
of firefighters. For months, they
acted to help the family whenever called, whether it was to
deliver meals at the hospital or
to mow his lawn.
“These guys have been here
24 hours a day. You name it, they
were willing to do it,” Dane
Smothers Sr. said. “It’s been a
long nearly three months and
very emotional time, but today is
a happy day.”
Dean said the incident remains under investigation by a
committee of safety officials,
senior officers and union representatives.
Smothers still faces months of
rehabilitation. But on Wednesday he wore his department
uniform and Engine 3 cap.
He said he was told during his
training academy days that the
firehouse on New Jersey Avenue
NW was one of the busiest and a
challenge. That’s the place he
wants to return.
“That’s my family,” Smothers
said. “In my short time at the
firehouse, I have grown to love
them, and they have grown to
love me. I just wanted to say
that.”

M ORIAH B ALINGIT
Vicente Rodriguez runs an
after-school program in Loma
Linda, Calif., but dreams of becoming an English and ethnic
studies teacher in a state desperate to fill teaching jobs.
But there’s a problem: The
30-year-old Rodriguez has a
work permit through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that will expire in
2019, before he even has a chance
to set foot in a classroom.
“My ability to become a teacher is slowly slipping away,” Rodriguez said, speaking before an
audience at a news conference
Wednesday in the Capitol.
The Trump administration in
September said it would wind
down the DACA program, which
granted work permits to about
690,000 people who, like Rodriguez, were brought to the United
States illegally as children.
On Wednesday, Rodriguez ral-
lied with leaders from the National Education Association to
press Congress to pass the
Dream Act of 2017, a proposal
that would provide a pathway to
citizenship for immigrants such
as himself. The Migration Policy
Institute, a Washington think
tank, estimates that there are
20,000 immigrants with DACA
working as educators, including
5,000 in California and 2,000
each in New York and Texas.
The DACA program, created
by President Barack Obama in
2012, allowed hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to
the United States as children to
work legally and to attend college. President Trump, who said
Obama did not have the authority to create the program, has
pressed Congress to come up
with a fix that would allow DACA
recipients to remain in the
country.
Some districts, such as Denver
Public Schools, have recruited
DACA recipients, hoping to find
teachers who can empathize
with the struggles of their growing populations of immigrant
students.
Now, schools are facing the
possibility that they could lose
educators if DACA ends without
a legislative fix.
“Many of these teachers are
terrific role models for our kids,”
Denver Public Schools Superintendent Tom Boasberg said last
month. The district educates
many students who, like DACA
recipients, came to the United
States as children.
The American Federation of
Teachers, whose 1.7 million members include teachers with work
permits through DACA, last
week joined the NAACP in suing
the Trump administration, arguing that the president’s termination of DACA is illegal.
Five of Education Secretary
Betsy DeVos’s predecessors —
including those who served under Republican presidents —
also urged Congress last month
to protect the immigrants.
“DACA recipients are sharpening their minds in school, accelerating innovation by developing
new technologies, teaching the
next generation of leaders in our
public schools, treating patients
in our hospitals and contributing
to rescue efforts in Houston,”
they wrote. Ending DACA without a legislative fix, they wrote,
“would trigger a chaotic reversal
of the gains achieved by these
Dreamers over the last five
years.”
Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham
(D-N.M.), chairwoman of the
Congressional Hispanic Caucus,
commended educators for inspiring the next generation of
immigrant students.
“They’re creating the next generation of hope and ambition
and success for a country we all
know and love,” Grisham said.
“In my state, we have a very
severe teacher shortage. A lot of
this is shored up particularly in
those rural isolated areas that
have higher pockets of poverty
and higher challenges. DACA
recipients, ‘dreamers,’ fill that
gap willingly, courageously, and
effectively make a difference in
the classroom every single day.”
Regardless of what Congress
does, Rodriguez plans to apply to
a master’s program that will help
him earn his teaching certificate.
He plans to apply to the University of the Redlands in January.
“My dream to become a teacher is so close I can grasp it,”
Rodriguez said. He said he hopes
to inspire children in the same
way his teachers pushed him: “I
want to be that teacher that says,
‘Hey, you can do it! Anything is
possible.’ ”

MARYLAND
Hogan announces $50 million tra∞c signal plan
14 corridors will receive
self-adjusting lights
BY
K ATHERINE S HAVER
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R)
announced Wednesday that the
state will begin installing $50 million worth of “smart” traffic signals that can change their own
timing to help clear backups.
The signals, to be installed in 14
corridors, will use pavement sensors to detect congestion and adjust the light timing to allot more
green time as needed, whether
from chronic rush-hour delays or
sudden accidents, Hogan said.
Signals in a corridor also will sync
with one another.
The state’s 2,500 signals now
require a technician to go out and
reprogram their timing, leaving
them unable to adjust quickly to
keep traffic moving, state officials
said. A pilot study in Harford
County found a smart signal cut
drive times by 13 percent, state
officials said.
“We’ll finally have the ability to
respond to changing traffic flows
and changing traffic conditions in
real time, immediately,” Hogan
said at a news conference at the
state’s traffic operations center in
Hanover,
near
BaltimoreWashington International Marshall Airport.
The “smart signals” will be installed beginning this month and
will be working in parts of seven
counties by the end of the year,
officials said. The first ones will be
on Route 2 in the Annapolis area,
between Annapolis Harbor Center
and Tarragon Lane.
State officials said the 14 signal-
ized corridors will benefit nearly
700,000 motorists daily.
Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete K. Rahn said the signals will “talk” to one another.
While other urban areas have similar systems in some highly congested corridors, Rahn said, he
believes Maryland will be the first
to have a more extensive network.
“The key here is this will work
regionally, so the entire system is
communicating with each other,”
Rahn said. “That’s what’s going to
allow traffic to flow better.”
He said it’s the second phase of
state traffic-relief efforts, noting
that Hogan recently announced a
$9 billion plan to add four toll lanes
each to the Capital Beltway (Interstate 495), Interstate 270 and the
Baltimore-Washington Parkway
via a public-private partnership.
Gregory Slater, Maryland’s state
highway administrator, said the
corridors chosen as starting points
have compatible technology and
could be converted most quickly.
In the Washington suburbs, those
include part of Route 108 in the
Olney area of Montgomery County
and parts of Route 202 and
U.S. 301 in the Landover and Bowie areas of Prince George’s County.
Slater said the new signals will
adjust as needed 24 hours a day
and will respond to even minor
backups.
“It will adjust on the fly,” Slater
said.
Hogan said more smart signals
will be installed in other areas of
the state in the future.
“This is just the beginning,” he
said.
Montgomery officials say
they’re testing similar technology
in traffic signals on Montrose
Parkway.

VIRGINIA
Marshall ad accuses Roem of ‘lewd behavior’ in old video of her band
Democratic candidate:
GOP delegate going for
‘manufactured outrage’
BY
P ATRICIA S ULLIVAN
Longtime Virginia state Del.
Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince
William), facing a well-financed
challenge by Democrat Danica
Roem, has released a campaign
ad that highlights Roem’s transgender identity and uses old video of her band to accuse her of
“lewd” and “shocking” behavior.
The ad, which was posted on
Facebook, is titled “Bad Judgement.” It says Roem, a former
newspaper reporter, “has no record of public service but does
have a record of bad judgment.
From a shocking bathroom video
to lewd behavior during interviews . . . Danica is not interested
in our future. Danica is interested
in Danica’s future.”
While it’s not the first attack
ad to target Roem, the video is
the first attack from Marshall. It
includes a snippet from what
Roem said was a five-year-old
video made by her heavy-metal
band, Cab Ride Home, before
she began her physical gender
transition.
The snippet shows an unidentified man leaving a bathroom
stall, which in the full music
video is part of a scene that is
suggestive of people having oral
sex. Although that context is not
clear in Marshall’s campaign ad,
John Findlay, the executive director of the Virginia Republican
Party, criticized Roem on
Wednesday “for being featured in
a video where it is clearly implied
she performed group oral sex in a
public restroom.”
“That behavior is shocking and
her appearance in the video in
that role is the definition of bad
judgement on Danica’s part,”
Findlay said in an email.
Roem strongly disagreed:
“This is a comedy video nobody is
going to take seriously,” she said,
adding: “For them to accuse me
of lewd behavior is the height of
hypocrisy. . . . This is manufactured outrage.”
Marshall’s ad also accuses
Roem of “promoting transgender education in public school
for children as young as 5 years
old.” Roem does not include
such a position in her campaign
platform or her public appearances. When pressed on the
topic on a radio talk show last
month, she said that she would
support teaching about gender
identity issues in kindergarten if
it was done in an age-appropriate manner.
“We have 13 days left. . . . That’s
his message he’s going with?
Character assassination instead
of a debate on public policy?”
Roem asked. “. . . He’s spent his
career trying to restrict women’s
rights, including his support for
government-mandated transvaginal ultrasounds.”
Dan Dodds, Marshall’s campaign manager, said this is the
campaign’s “first educational ad”
on Roem. It will air on cable
television in Virginia’s 13th District starting Thursday or Friday.
“I wouldn’t call it a personal
attack,” Dodds said, adding, “This
is stuff that Danica has posted
publicly and celebrated publicly.”
Marshall has refused to debate
Roem or appear at campaign
forums with her. A conservative
who has sponsored legislation
that would regulate which bathrooms transgender people can
use, he also refuses to use female
pronouns when referring to
Roem.
In June, he told The Washington Post: “When I do campaign
fliers, I will put a contrast between myself and my opponent. I
don’t get personal or whatever.
So, we’ll just find out.”

ANTOINE ‘FATS’ DOMINO, 89
Mellow fellow helped launch rock
BY
T ERENCE M C A RDLE
Antoine “Fats” Domino, the jovial New Orleans entertainer
whose bluesy singing and boogiewoogie piano style helped launch
rock-and-roll in the 1950s with
such rollicking songs as “Blueberry Hill,” “Ain’t That a Shame” and
“I’m Walkin’,” died Oct. 24 at home
in Harvey, La. He was 89.
Mark Bone, chief investigator
with the Jefferson Parish coroner’s office in Louisiana, confirmed his death. Additional details were not immediately available.
Among the early rockers, Mr.
Domino was rivaled only by Elvis
Presley in record sales. He dominated Billboard magazine’s pop
and rhythm-and-blues charts
from 1955 to 1963. Moreover, Mr.
Domino’s signature piano triplets
— three notes for every beat —
became the basis of rock and pop
ballads for the next three decades,
including such diverse recordings
as the Beatles’ “Oh, Darling,” Otis
Redding’s “These Arms of Mine”
and even Percy Faith’s “Theme
From a Summer Place.”
In a music style identified with
rebellion, Mr. Domino wasn’t very
rebellious in his approach. Unlike
Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little
Richard and any number of other
flamboyant performers, he sang
in a mellow voice and sported a
wide grin onstage. His lone gimmick involved using his immense
girth to push the piano to the
front of the stage — and this he did
only during his encore.
“He had a natural talent,” said
rhythm-and-blues historian John
Broven. “Yet he seemed to have
little idea as to why he was famous, which only enhanced his
charm and appeal. His biggest
hits made rock-and-roll acceptable by appealing to all age groups
and races. And he did it without
compromising his New Orleans
roots.”
“The Fats Domino sound,”
Broven added, “was a combination of Fats’s clearly enunciated
and naturally melodic Creolelaced vocals, aided by his underrated piano work — from creative
boogie-woogie to simple triplets
— and the impeccable solos and
riffs from the accompanying
band.”
Such songs as “Walking to New
Orleans” and “Do You Know What
It Means to Miss New Orleans?”
instantly identified Mr. Domino
with his home town. The latter
recording, from 1961, was revived
on the radio in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
New Orleans culture was heard
in the catchy parade rhythms of
such hits such as “I’m Walkin’ ”
and “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Someday” — a reflection of his arranger
Dave Bartholomew’s background
in traditional jazz.
Antoine Domino Jr. was born
Feb. 26, 1928, in New Orleans’s
Ninth Ward, the youngest of eight
in a bilingual Creole family. His
father played Creole songs on the
violin. Mr. Domino learned the
basics of piano from his brother-

in-law Harrison Verrett, a banjo
player and guitarist with Papa
Celestin’s Dixieland band, who
would later work as Mr. Domino’s
road manager.
Mr. Domino studied boogiewoogie records by Meade Lux
Lewis and developed a smooth
singing style from crooning blues
singer-pianists Charles Brown
and Little Willie Littlefield.
He put a band together and
secured an engagement in 1947 at
the Hideaway Club while working
during the day in a bedsprings
factory. His way with boogiewoogie proved a good draw —
good enough to concern Bartholomew, a trumpeter whose band
worked down the street.
Bartholomew, moonlighting as
the talent scout for Imperial, a
struggling California record label,
brought the label’s owner, Lew
Chudd, to the Hideaway. Chudd,
who was white, later recalled that
he had to scrunch down in the
back seat of Bartholomew’s car
because of New Orleans’s segregation laws. Mr. Domino signed
with the label, an association between Bartholomew, Chudd and
Mr. Domino that lasted more than
a decade.
For his first recording session
in 1949, Bartholomew suggested
they write new words to Champion Jack Dupree’s “Junker’s
Blues,” one of Mr. Domino’s most
popular live numbers. The resulting hit, “The Fat Man,” established
his happy-go-lucky stage persona:
They call me, call me the fat
man
’Cause I weigh 200 pounds
All the girls they love me
’Cause I know my way around
While Mr. Domino initially
balked at traveling outside New
Orleans, the hit made him a touring attraction with a band that
often included session saxophonists Herb Hardesty and Lee Allen.
He occasionally lent his piano
trills to other performers’ recordings, such as Lloyd Price’s 1952 hit,
“Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” later covered by Presley.
The 1955 hit “Ain’t That a
Shame,” his first recording to enter the pop charts, was narrowly
eclipsed in sales by pop singer Pat
Boone’s cover version. Producers
had to dissuade Boone from
changing the song’s refrain to the
grammatically correct “isn’t that
a shame.”
“We were actually searching for
a sound in those days. I never
wanted to get things too complicated,” Bartholomew once said.
“It had to be simple so people
could understand it right away. It
had to be the kind of thing that a
7-year-old kid could start whistling. I just kept in simple.”
“Blueberry Hill,” perhaps the
song most identified with Mr.
Domino, proved difficult to record. He had learned the standard
from a Louis Armstrong recording but remembered only one
verse. The engineer edited the
finished record together from two
incomplete takes.
Mr. Domino successfully recorded other pop standards, including “My Blue Heaven,” “When
My Dreamboat Comes Home” and
“I’m in the Mood for Love.”
Leaving Imperial for the larger
ABC-Paramount label in 1963, Mr.
Domino recorded in Nashville
with considerably less success.
The popularity of the Motown
sound had made Mr. Domino’s
style less fashionable. Critics have
also cited the lack of New Orleans
spontaneity on his later records.
Undeterred, Mr. Domino toured
England, where his records were
still popular with the rocker subculture.
As his record sales declined in
the 1960s, Mr. Domino performed
steadily in Las Vegas but lost money in the city’s casinos. At his first
Las Vegas engagement in 1962, he
gambled away $180,000 in two
weeks. His fee for the engagement
was $6,500 a week.
“I went to play the Flamingo for
two weeks and I stayed for
15 years,” he told USA Today.
He briefly reemerged on the
pop charts in 1968 with a version
of the Beatles’ “Lady Madonna,” a
song that critics have pointed out
owes much to his piano-driven
style.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
inducted him in 1986, its first
year. The next year, Mr. Domino
won a Grammy Award for lifetime
achievement. He received a National Medal of Arts from President Bill Clinton in 1998.
His wife, the former Rosemary
Hall, whom he married in 1947
and for whom he named the song
“Rose Mary,” died in 2007. Their
son Andre died in 1997. A complete list of survivors was not
immediately available.
In later years, he toured with
less frequency. “I traveled all over
for about 50 years. I love a lot of
places, and I’ve been to a lot of
places, but I just don’t care to
leave home,” Mr. Domino told
USA Today.
Mr. Domino remained in New
Orleans in the impoverished
neighborhood where he grew up.
He often invited people into his
home from off the street to taste
his Creole cooking.
The home, a mansion among
the neighborhood’s “shotgun
shacks,” was not spared during
Hurricane Katrina. Many news
outlets initially reported the singer was dead. However, he had
waited out the storm with his wife,
two daughters and a son-in-law on
the house’s third floor as the water
level rose to 15 feet. Mr. Domino
was rescued by helicopter.
A local charity, Tipitina’s Foundation, helped repair the home in
return for his recording a benefit
album, “Alive and Kickin’,” in
2006.
The next year, rock journalist
Andrew Perry visited Mr. Domino
at his home.
“Just as he was the most congenial and inoffensive of the firstwave rockers, he would also be the
last New Orleanian to voice anger
about Katrina,” Perry wrote.
“When I ask him to give his
thoughts on how the disaster was
handled, he amiably deflects from
the issue. Suddenly, he thrusts his
beer bottle into my hand again.
‘Feel it,’ he says, ‘ain’t that cool?’ ”
When Perry asked him if he was
making a comeback, Mr. Domino
replied, “I just drink my little
beers, do some cooking, anything
I feel like. . . . Let us know when
you’re coming again, I’ll cook
something up for you.”

DUBESTER
AL HURRICANE, 81
HENRY J. DUBESTER (Age 99)
‘Godfather of New Mexico music’ bridged genres
F ROM STAFF REPORTS
AND NEWS SERVICES
Al Hurricane, a singer who was
often called the “Godfather of New
Mexico music” for bridging Mexican rancheras, country music and
rock, died Oct. 22 in Albuquerque.
He was 81.
His son, Al Hurricane Jr., said
the cause was complications from
prostate cancer.
Hurricane, the son of a miner,
was born Alberto Nelson Sánchez
on July 10, 1936, in Dixon, N.M,
and he moved frequently before
his family settled in Albuquerque
when he was 9. His mother, a
concert promoter, taught him to
sing and play guitar.
He began his professional music career by singing in Albuquerque Old Town restaurants before
releasing his first songs, “Lobo”
and “Racer,” under the band Al
Hurricane & the Night Rockers in
1962.
“When I was a young squirt, I
used to have the habit of reaching
across the table and would end up
hitting a few glasses and plates
onto the floor,” he told the Santa Fe
New Mexican. “After that happened a couple of times, my mother shook her head and said I was
like a hurricane.”
GREG SORBER/THE ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Al Hurricane picks some tunes on his guitar in Albuquerque. He
recorded more than 30 albums and traveled internationally.
He released his first album, “Mi
Saxophone,” in 1967. The album
contained his signature song
“Sentimiento,” a ballad he wrote
for his first wife. Years later, the
young Tejano singer named Selena heard the song and recorded
her own version of it.
In 1969, while on a trip to Colorado, a car carrying Hurricane and
five band members skidded on an
icy bridge and flipped five times. A
piece of glass struck Hurricane’s
right eye, causing him to lose it. He
wore an eye patch for this rest of
his life.
He went on to record more than
30 albums and traveled internationally. Among his most popular
songs were “Mexican Cat” and “Pedro’s Girlfriend.” The songs blended traditional New Mexico corridos, Tejano, rock, folk and country.
Often, he sang them in both Spanish and English.
Following the 1980 Santa Fe
prison riot — one of the most
violent prison riots in U.S. history
— Hurricane released the song
“(El Corrido De) La Prison De Santa Fe,” a narrative about the conditions that led to the uprising. Hurricane later said the song did not
seek to place blame for the violence but to tell a story of the riot
that left 33 dead and 200 hurt.
His marriages to Nettie Fleming,
with whom he had four children,
and Angela Sánchez, with whom
he had four more children, ended
in divorce. He was estranged from
Angela when their daughter, Lynnea, age 2, died of blunt trauma.
Not long afterward, Angela and her
boyfriend Ruben Lopez were
found guilty of child abuse leading
to the death and went to prison.
After his daughter’s death, Hurricane said he suffered a heart
attack brought on in part because
of the stress of the ordeal.
In later years, he was known for
sporting an ink-black toupee
(which the Santa Fe New Mexican
called “one of the worst-kept secrets in New Mexico entertainment
circles”). He was a presence on the
campaigns of Republican officeseekers, including former U.S. congresswoman Heather Wilson and
current Gov. Susana Martinez.

served in the U.S. Army from 1942 – 1945 as
a Lieutenant Second Class. In 1943, Henry
married Dorothy Ennis who was then in
the WAVES (the U.S. Navy). They celebrated
seventy years of marriage before Dorothy
passed away in 2014.
For much of his professional career, Henry
worked at the Library of Congress, where,
among other accomplishments, he prepared the standard bibliography of historical U.S. census publications (Catalog of
United States Census Publications, 17901945) that still bears his name. As Chief of
the Reference and Bibliography Division of
the Reference Department, he supervised
recordings of poets reading their own poetry and helped libraries transition to the
digital age. He then served as Deputy Chief
of the Office of Science Information Services at the National Science Foundation.
Upon retirement from government service,
he became an Associate Professor and then
Acting Dean at the University of Maryland
School of Library and Information Services.
Henry was elected to the Cosmos Club

American Library Association. He excelled

woodworking, and ceramics. He and his
wife achieved life-master status in the
American Contract Bridge League. Henry

wife, appreciation of classical music, and

the eight actors is one who makes
a particularly convincing case for
speaking truth to power: Maria

As Hurricane Irma barreled toward

and her family packed up three cars and
evacuated to a friend’s home. “I thought I
wouldn’t come back to anything,” Kurleman said, recalling the moment her family drove away from Clearwater Beach. In
addition to the basics, she said they
gathered documents, photos, her Bible,
jewelry, plus the kids’ kiteboards.
When the storm passed, they drove
back and found only minor damage. But
the experience left Kurleman with an urge
to purge. “I was weighed down by too
much stuff,” Kurleman, 50, said. “I was
prepared to start over with what I had
with me,” she said, adding: “I could live
simpler.”

A shift from
silence in
the settling
of cases?
BY
C AITLIN G IBSON
For 19 years, Zelda Perkins told
no one about how Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein had repeatedly harassed her while she
worked as his assistant in Miramax’s London office. She couldn’t
speak of it: Under the terms of a
contract negotiated between her
attorneys and Weinstein’s, she had
agreed to never share her story.
So she didn’t — until this week.
In a lengthy interview with the
Financial Times, she explained
that she was breaking her silence
not just to shed more light on
Weinstein’s pattern of abuse —
but to expose the convoluted legal
provisions that had kept her quiet
for so long.
“I want to publicly break my
non-disclosure agreement,” Perkins said. “Unless somebody does
this, there won’t be a debate about
how egregious these agreements
are and the amount of duress that
victims are put under.”

Is the ex-wife
of McLaughlin
due insurance
payout? Wrong!
Looking for laughs? Federal
court documents aren’t typically
a go-to source.
But a judge from the U.S.
District Court for the District of
Columbia improbably worked
some comedy into his decision in
a case about whether longtime
political talk-show host John
McLaughlin’s ex-wife could
claim her late ex’s life insurance
annuities.
Here’s the backdrop on the
legal maneuverings: While they
were married, McLaughlin had
designated his second wife,
Christina Vidal, as the
beneficiary of his life insurance
policy. The couple split in 2010,
and she got $1 million, per their
prenuptial agreement, though he
never removed her name from
the policy. When McLaughlin
died in August, his estate sought
the court’s ruling that the estate,
not Vidal, should get the life
insurance.
In essence, the court agreed
and found that the prenup
payout nullified her claim to his
insurance money. But how it
issued that decision was
hilarious, laced with references
to McLaughlin’s bombastic
signature lines and interviewing
style made famous (see those
“Saturday Night Live” skits) on
his longtime show, “The
McLaughlin Group.”

MOLOSHOK/INVISION FOR THE TELEVISION ACADEMY/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Clockwise from top left, Bill Murray, former president Barack Obama, Lorne Michaels and Tina Fey were seen in town.
HEY, ISN’T THAT . . .?
Former president Barack Obama
and comedian Bill Murray, hitting the
links together Tuesday at Army Navy
Country Club in Arlington?
The “Caddyshack” star was in
Washington for the Sunday-night
Mark Twain awards at the Kennedy
Center honoring fellow funnyman
Dave Letterman, and he apparently
found time during his visit to reunite
with an old golfing buddy. Obama and
Murray famously practiced putting in
the Oval Office in a video the White
House released in December urging
people to sign up for health insurance.
The high-profile pair were the talk
of the club Tuesday, according to a spy.
Obama joined the Army-Navy club
in May and has been spotted there
several times, although he has his
choice of greens: He’s also an honorary
member at both Columbia Country
Club in Chevy Chase, Md., and Robert
Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville,
Va.
Later that night, Tina Fey and
Lorne Michaels were spotted having
what looked like a working dinner
Tuesday night at Ocean Prime
downtown.
The onetime “Saturday Night Live”
colleagues (he’s the producer; she was
a writer and cast member) were
accompanied by another woman our
spy couldn’t ID. Michaels was in a suit
with no tie and Fey looked casual-cool
in jeans and ankle boots, we’re told.
So what’s behind the SNL minireunion? Fey’s “Mean Girls” musical,
which Michaels is producing, is in
rehearsals ahead of its Oct. 31 preBroadway premiere at the National
Theatre.
The group lingered for a few hours
and looked to be having fun, says our
spy, so clearly it wasn’t all biz. Maybe
next time, they’ll skip the fancy
downtown dining and just go to
(“Mean Girls” reference alert) Taco
Bell?
Christopher “Casey” Cooper
wrote portions in what is clearly
McLaughlin’s voice.
Here’s Cooper’s intro:

his divorce from his former wife
Christina Vidal, intended for her
to benefit from two life insurance
annuities that he brought to the
marriage?” he wrote. “Any
answer shy of 9 would be . . .
Wrong! Mr. McLaughlin did not
wish his ex-wife to receive the
annuity benefits.”
Other such lines were
sprinkled throughout, such as
the section titled: “Issue number
one: Subject matter jurisdiction!
Do the facts alleged establish it?
Yes!”
And to sum up his reasoning,
Cooper closed with another
“McLaughlin Group” reference.
“Therefore, until the next episode
. . . It is ORDERED that . . . ”
A call to Cooper’s chambers
wasn’t immediately returned.
But we can imagine why the guy
might need a little comic relief
these days — he’s currently
hearing the trial of Ahmed Abu
Khattala, who is accused of
planning the 2012 attacks on the
U.S. diplomatic facilities in
Benghazi in which four
Americans were killed.
One reader who was definitely
amused was lawyer Mark
Barondess, who represented
McLaughlin’s estate. Barondess
called the decision “legally
brilliant and absolutely
hysterical at the very same time”
and imagined that the TV talker
would have enjoyed it, too: “Dr.
McLaughlin must be in heaven
celebrating the decision and
bantering about it with everyone
as only he could do.”
@helena_andrews @emilyaheil
Despite non-disclosure agreements, some victims are speaking up
In the aftermath of the producer’s epic downfall, a debate
over the secretive legal agreements that hid his behavior is
swiftly gathering steam. Lawmakers in New York and California are proposing legislation that
would void any settlement agreement that conceals claims of sexual harassment or discrimination. Last week, a group of Weinstein Co. employees issued a
statement demanding that they
be released from their non-disclosure agreements, “so we may
speak openly, and get to the origins of what happened here, and
how.”
These sorts of non-disclosure
agreements and confidential settlements have been used to resolve claims against Bill Cosby,
former presidential candidate
Herman Cain and former Fox
News chief executive Roger Ailes.
The New York Times reported last
weekend that Bill O’Reilly settled
a sexual harassment complaint in
January for $32 million, with the
intent of keeping the allegation
out of court and the public view.
The Times also reported that
Weinstein has reached at least
eight such settlements over decades.
But now some women, like
Perkins, are balking at the terms
of these agreements.
On Tuesday, former actor Caitlin O’Heaney told BuzzFeed News
that she had decided to violate the
terms of a confidential settlement
to share her account of being
punched by actor Val Kilmer during a 1989 audition for “The
Doors,” as director Oliver Stone
looked on. She explained that she
felt empowered by all the women
who had come forward to share
their experiences with Weinstein.
“Women have come together,”
O’Heaney told BuzzFeed. “I finally have the confidence to speak
about this.”
Minna Kotkin, a professor of
law at Brooklyn Law School who
specializes in employment discrimination, says she first wrote
about concerns surrounding
NDAs and confidential settlements more than a decade ago,
when it was a discussion mostly
limited to academic circles. She’s
glad to see it crossing into the
mainstream.
“Why now? Because people are
breaking their agreements,
they’re not complying, and then
that’s combined with the highprofile figures on both sides, both
as the harassers and the victims,”
she says.
Cathy Schulman, an Oscarwinning filmmaker and president
of the advocacy organization
Women in Film, believes that
these sorts of confidential settlements should be “prohibited entirely” in any case involving sexual harassment or abuse. “If we
don’t start by making this kind of
behavior absolutely and unquestionably illegal, then I don’t think
we have a starting point,” she said.
But not everyone is con-

THEATER FROM C1
production, directed by Belarus
Free Theatre founders Nicolai
Khalezin and Natalia Kaliada, further bolsters the urgency and moral authority of “Burning Doors,” a
multimedia paean to those who
struggle for the rights of the individual and against the brutality of
the state. It’s a topic of ongoing
concern for Belarus Free Theatre,
which embarked in 2005 on a mission to dramatize — and criticize
— aspects of a restrictive society in
which the company challenged
the limits being imposed on artis-
tic expression. Going underground was the only way it was
able to stage shows in Minsk, Belarus’s capital; its founders went
into exile, sending directorial instructions back home via Skype.
I’ve seen Belarus Free Theatre
productions in New York and London; one of its first American visits
was to Georgetown University, in
2009. And in its previous stop last
week, at La MaMa Experimental
Theatre Club in Manhattan’s East
Village, I caught a performance of
the current show, which stops for
two performances, Thursday and
Friday, in College Park.
In the passionately intelligent
“Burning Doors,” Belarus Free
Theatre presents a kaleidoscopic
series of vignettes, in Russian and
Belarusan with English surtitles,
that look at civil disobedience and
the punishments that result,
through the prisms of personal
sacrifice and art. The nature and
permutations of protest are explored through the stories of dissidents such as Pussy Riot and the
Ukrainian filmmaker and activist
Oleg Sentsov, serving a 20-year
prison term in Russia on what
have been condemned as
trumped-up terrorism charges.
vinced that confidential settlements are bad for all accusers.
Feminist attorney Gloria Allred,
who represents some of Weinstein’s accusers, has said that
the needs of a particular plaintiff should be taken into account, even if an agreement
prevents a predator’s behavior
from coming to light.
“If she resolves it in a way that’s
positive for her and that she feels
good about, then that’s what’s
most important,” Allred told the
Los Angeles Times. “And yes, it
may mean that others may not
know. But should it be mandated
that no settlement should be confidential? We don’t think it’s a
good idea.”
Accusers can still file a complaint with law enforcement or
the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, regardless of a
confidential settlement, though
many don’t feel comfortable pursuing that option. Kotkin agrees
that some victims might want
confidentiality to avoid the ex-
pense of a trial or the humiliation
of coming forward publicly.
“But my experience is that most
plaintiffs, especially those who
have left the company, are really
quite shocked by the fact that
they can’t talk about it at all, they
can’t tell their friends what happened,” she says. “And as all of
these stories come up, there is
going to be less of a stigma for
women who report it, and confidentiality should be less of a
concern.”
But it’s not just the settlements
stemming from an allegation that
perpetuate secrecy, says entertainment lawyer Jonathan Handel, a contributing editor at the
Hollywood Reporter. Many companies require broad non-disparagement waivers from all employees. Out-of-court arbitration
agreements can also limit the
ability of an accuser to come
forward, he says.
These agreements can also
keep victims from learning about
the existence of other victims,
Bernabei notes. When assisting
her own clients with settlements,
she reminds them of this, and the
fact that a perpetrator may well
go unpunished.
“You just have to hope that
there’s enough that happens
down the road that the person
will be exposed, and something
will be done.” As was the case with
Weinstein, she said: “The dam
burst.”
In a case like his, there is safety
in numbers for his accusers.
Plaintiffs run certain risks by
violating a confidential agreement — they could be forced to
pay back the entire settlement
amount, or more. Yet it seems
unlikely Weinstein would sue his
accusers — a step that would be
unlikely to repair his image, Handel said.
“We’re in a different cultural
moment, at least in the entertainment industry, than we were even
three weeks ago let alone a few
years ago, with Cosby,” he said.
Khalezin and Kaliada have their
actors segue into dramatizations
of classic literature — most powerfully, an excerpt from “The Grand
Inquisitor” in Dostoevsky’s “The
Brothers Karamazov” — as a
means of revealing how deeply
embedded in Russian thought is a
yearning for spiritual freedom, at
the risk of physical suffering. On a
set dominated by three numbered
cell doors, with the plaintive
drumbeat of Alexander Lyulakin’s
percussive score filling the space,
the actors sing, tell tales of defiance against the Russian government, and offer up satirical portraits of Putin functionaries, entertaining one another with accounts of their own wealth.
At one point, the house lights
come up and Alyokhina takes a
seat at a table, and the audience is
entreated to shoot questions at
her, news-conference style. It can
be awkward, as the interlude dissolves the show’s carefully constructed artifices. But if you’re curious about how Pussy Riot survived a terrifying ordeal, this is
your opportunity to ask about it.
Nevertheless, the episodic evening builds to a hypnotizing finish,
with the actors engaging in an ever
more physically demanding set of
routines. In one extended scene, a
pair of men wrestle for supremacy,
in a series of takedowns by one of
the other. It goes on and on, for so
long, in fact, that you wonder how
either of them can remain upright. “Burning Doors” is all about
levels of endurance, about how
much a human being is capable of
withstanding, when giving in is
not an option.

Hanging on every word as they peruse ancient manuscripts and bookstores
BY
M ICHAEL D IRDA
Both these excellent books —
Christopher de Hamel’s “Meetings With Remarkable Manuscripts” and Jorge Carrión’s
“Bookshops” — reinvigorate an
old-fashioned form of criticism,
sometimes summed up by the
phrase “the adventures of a soul
among masterpieces.”
During the middle part of the
20th century, humanist scholarship in many disciplines modeled
itself on the sciences, rejecting
anything that smacked of the
personal, subjective and essayistic. To art scholars, traditional
connoisseurship was deemed
overly impressionistic; in literary
study, New Critics — under the
banner of “the poem itself ” —
banished the biographical in favor of intensive verbal analysis;
among historians, the Annales
school shied away from narrative
and fine writing, as practiced by a
Gibbon or Michelet, to emphasize
data, data, data.
No one would deny the crucial
value of technical, “just the facts,
ma’am” approaches, but they can
seem more than a little arid to
anyone not already passionate
about a subject. Certainly, casual
readers gravitate to scholarly
books that combine knowledge
and authority with a winning
style and a vivid sense of the

It’s both unbelievably cool and
chillingly bloodless. It’s the dining equivalent of ordering bedsheets on your phone and having
them appear on your doorstep the
next day.
Eatsa has invited a lot of comparisons to “The Jetsons,” the
’60s-era cartoon that imagined a
future with push-button dining.
But after eating at the K Street
NW location a couple of times
before it closed, I think the more
apt analogy is “The Omega Man,”
in which Charlton Heston plays
the “last man on Earth.” Eatsa is
the latest high-tech endeavor —
behind computers, smartphones,
live-streaming, robotic delivery
services, blah, blah, blah — that
makes us feel lonelier than God.
You could argue that Eatsa has
completed the circuit for uncoupled millennials and singles from
every other generation: They can
now go an entire workday without interacting with real people.
The lunchtime cafe has long been
the one spot where office hermits
could escape the splendid isolation of their cubicles and talk to
colleagues, rediscovering the humanity that lay dormant beneath
their digital lives.
I don’t know, maybe it’s all part
of a secret, union-busting conspiracy. How can the workers
unite if they never see one another anymore?
Personally, I think the founders
of Eatsa have overestimated the
draw of technology or, perhaps
more to the point, they couldn’t
imagine that people might be
repelled by a restaurant that resembles a giant smartphone.
Their folly, I suspect, is they don’t
understand the fundamental attraction of a restaurant. They
might not even know the etymology of the word.
According to Merriam-Webster, the word “restaurant” comes
from the French language, from
the present participle of restaurer, meaning “to restore.” Historically, restaurants served as a restorative to weary travelers, and
they function much the same way
in modern society. As Eve Turow
Paul writes in Forbes, where she
contemplates the intersection of
food culture and millennials, numerous studies have shown “the
links between technology and increasing rates of loneliness, depression, and anxiety. Many in
this young generation battle a
creeping sense of nugatory existence by connecting over a meal
— whether it’s by cooking for
family, dining out with friends, or
chatting with others online about
gluten-free recipes. My research
clearly shows these human-facing moments and deeper instances of interaction help soothe this
digitally-connected generation.”
I don’t think technology’s negative effects are felt only by millennials, though that generation
may (and I emphasize may) have
a more intimate relationship with
its phones than older folks. I
mean, I don’t know a single person who says she wants to spend
more time on her phone. We all
know the soul-sucking nature of
the wired life.
Yet, in its statement Monday on
the retail closings, Eatsa hints
that it will return to a location
near you. Which leads me to raise
a question to the owners: Do you
really think people want to visit a
restaurant that may contribute to
their sense of isolation?

Pennsylvania Avenue NW automated cafe Eatsa in February.
one can learn from them. Like
Sherlock Holmes, though, he
stresses close attention to small
details — “There is nothing so
important as trifles,” as the detective said — when making deductions about a book’s authorship,
history and importance. Yet even
as de Hamel shares his vast
knowledge of parchment, illumination, handwriting scripts and
early Christianity, he shows himself to be much more than just a
paleographer and former Sotheby’s manuscript expert, he’s a
genuine fanboy. He loves “The
Codex Amiatinus,” “The Copenhagen Psalter” and “The Spinola
Hours” and he wants us to love
them, too.
To do that he shapes each of his
chapters into a mini-adventure.
For instance, his account of “The
Gospels of Saint Augustine”
opens with the following sentence:
“At the end of this chapter I will
recount how Pope Benedict XVI
and the Archbishop of Canterbury both bowed down before
me, on live television, in front of
the high altar of Westminster
Abbey.”
Before reaching that improbable-seeming event, we learn that
the “Gospel Book of Saint Augustine” is “the earliest surviving
book known to have been in medieval England,” that the first
time de Hamel asked to see it, in
the mid-1970s, he was refused
permission, and that he is now its
curator at the Parker Library in
Cambridge. In the course of describing the manuscript, he takes
us through the evidence that
leads him to conclude that it is
one of the actual books sent to
Augustine of Canterbury by Pope
Gregory the Great around the
time England converted to Christianity at the end of the 6th
century.
Throughout “Meetings With
Remarkable Manuscripts” de
Hamel aims to humanize what
are now slightly alien artifacts by
telling us about the people who
made them and the collectors,
institutions and scholars who
preserve them. For instance, he
recalls that archaeologist Rupert
Bruce-Mitford once likened the
weight of the enormous “Codex
Amiatinus” to “a fully grown female Great Dane.”
In the chapter on the Morgan
Library’s “Beatus” — a commentary on the scriptural Apocalypse
— he devotes several pages to the
colorful and infinitely charming
Count Guglielmo Bruto Icilio
Timoleone Libri-Carrucci dalla
Sommaia, a 19th-century connoisseur and “the best-known
thief in the history of manuscripts.” At the same time, de
Hamel doesn’t shy away from
bibliographic matters: You will
learn that “homeoteleuton” is the
technical term for eye-skip (when
a scribe inadvertently leaves out a
couple of lines) and that curved
Greek “diple” symbols evolved
into quotation marks. He also
sees persistent similarities in
style or provenance connecting
several of these manuscripts with
the ancient Ethiopian Christian
community.
“The Book of Kells,” as everyone knows, is the manuscript
equivalent of a rock star, the most
glamorous medieval book in the
world, its only rivals being the
Lindisfarne Gospels and the Très
Riches Heures of the Duc de
Berry. Still, when de Hamel discusses its first full-page illustration, “the earliest representation
of the Virgin and Child in European art,” he can’t help but confess that “the picture is dreadfully
ugly. Mary’s head is far too big for
her body, and she has huge staring red-lined eyes and a long nose
which looks as though it is dripping downwards, and a tiny
mouth. . . The baby, seen in profile, is grotesque and unadorable,
with wild red hair like seaweed.”
As this irreverent passage
shows, “Meetings With Remarkable Manuscripts” is miles away
from academic dry-as-dust scholarship. You’ll love learning from
it. Little wonder that in Britain
this extraordinary book has already won both the Wolfson History Prize and the Duff Cooper
nonfiction prize.
In the comparably entertaining “Bookshops: A Reader’s History” Jorge Carrión recalls visits
to such literary havens as City
Lights, The Strand and Powell’s,
as well as their counterparts in
Latin America, Europe, India and
Africa. As the Spanish critic says,
“Every bookshop is a condensed
version of the world.” One can
only envy his graceful cosmopolitanism.
Carrión relates delightful anecdotes about Paris booksellers Sylvia Beach, Adrienne Monnier and
George Whitman, speculates
about why so many movie love
stories are set in bookshops,
tracks the development of railstation bookstalls, interviews the
genial manager of England’s Waterstones chain, and quotes aptly
from Stefan Zweig, Bruce
Chatwin, Danilo Kis and Roberto
Bolaño. As compact as it is, this
quietly intelligent little book
speaks volumes.

Hitchings.
Will natural disasters break our addiction to stu≠?
STUFF FROM C1
the time to wade through their
things, many get more joy out of
watching cable shows on closet
cleaning, buying plastic tubs at
the Container Store and reading
Marie Kondo’s books. They contemplate reevaluating the mountains of stuff in their garages,
attics and basements. But many
don’t even have enough room in
their homes for everything they
want to keep: Almost 10 percent
of American households have a
storage unit, according to the Self
Storage Association.
Cris Sgrott-Wheedleton, a professional organizer in Tysons Corner, Va., has noticed a higher call
volume at her office since the
spate of natural disasters. “I think
the coverage has affected people.
People are ready to begin the
process. It reminds them to think,
‘What do I have in my house and
how would I gather those things
and put them in my car and
leave?,’ ” she says.
Watching people who have lost
everything can prompt a spiritual
change or a value shift, according
to Marjorie Kukor, an Ohio psychologist who has been a mentalhealth volunteer for local and
national disasters. “They might
realize that it’s not the material
things that are important to
them,” Kukor says.
Still, Sgrott-Wheedleton calls
the relationship of people with
their stuff “complex.” “I work with
people who say they wish they
could throw a match at their piles
of stuff and let it all burn down
and start fresh somewhere else.
But do they really mean that?” she
says. Making time-consuming decisions about what to keep and
what to let go is a difficult and
emotional process.
“We hold on to stuff because of
what we believe it says about us,”
says Regina Lark, a professional
organizer in Los Angeles. A GenXer might keep her grandparents’
china even though she never uses
it, but it keeps her connected to
her family story. A baby boomer
might still have T-shirts from
every 1970s concert he attended,
proving he’s not just a boring
office drone, but an office drone
who’s lived. On top of the memories of the past are uncertainties
about the future. What might be
useful someday? That question
can keep a scholar from tossing
decades-old notes; they might be
the basis for a great book.
Often people fail to focus on
what’s really important to them
until it’s too late. A few days
before Irma hit, Jodeen Krumenauer and husband John Sweet
packed a few suitcases and computer bags and evacuated from
their one-story house in a flood
zone in Bonita Springs, Fla.
When they returned 12 days
later, fish were swimming in the
four inches of water that filled
every room of their house.
They hadn’t anticipated this
level of damage. “We just packed
as though we were leaving for a
trip. I brought a box of insurance
papers and birth certificates. And
some electronics,” says Krumenauer, 50. Fortunately, at the last
minute, she also threw in some
old photos and a bit of jewelry
that had belonged to her grandmother who had died earlier this
year.
When they returned, the water
and mildew had ruined most of

their furniture and other possessions. She threw clothes that were
not moldy into a bag and saved
some kitchen accessories. The
stuffed animals had to go. She lost
family mementos and drawings
she had made. “That was hard,”
she says.
The whole process of rebuilding is messy and long. They are
reevaluating everything. “We will
think more about what it is we are
buying. Do we really need this?
But I can also see going the
opposite way and thinking you
want more things to make up for
what you lost. But I don’t want to
do that. I would like to live a life
with less stuff,” Krumenauer said.
Amy Nitza, director of the Institute for Disaster Mental Health
at SUNY New Paltz, says losing
everything in a disaster usually
becomes a defining bench mark
in someone’s life. “It can cause a
reappraisal of what life is about,”
she says.
The recent spate of hurricanes,
earthquakes and fires means that
“people, for good or bad, are
having vicarious reactions to
what they are seeing,” Nitza says.
She cited a 2015 survey that found
that only 22.9 percent of Americans indicated they had an emergency preparedness plan. Nitza
says that even those who haven’t
been directly affected by a hurricane or wildfire might be inspired
“to be prepared in a way they
might not have been before having this vicarious reaction.”
Geoffrey and Sarah Cocks, both
68, fall into that category. A year
ago, the couple downsized from a
2,500-square-foot home in Michigan to a smaller place in Carmel,
Calif. Geoffrey, a retired history
professor, thought it would be
hard to give up his books but
realized the tomes would be of
greater benefit to a library. The
couple said their pre-move decluttering was cathartic.
Now they are focused on a
different kind of packing. This
month, their daughter, her husband and their two cats had to
quickly leave their Napa, Calif.,
house before it was consumed by
fire. Their daughter’s sudden loss
moved the Cockses to pack gobags, complete with flashlights,
batteries, cash, sturdy shoes, water, granola bars and rain jackets
so they could be ready to leave at a
moment’s notice.
This tragedy “made us realize
that whatever stuff we had can
eventually be replaced,” Sarah
Cocks says. “Getting out with
your life and your animal companions is more important.”

Commiserating, then a sister-in-law’s serious breach of trust
Adapted from a
recent online
discussion.
Dear Carolyn: I
recently found out
my sister-in-law
shares everything
I say about my
mother with her
— including screenshots of texts
and exact quotes from phone
conversations. My mother is a
difficult person, and my sisterin-law and I have spent years
commiserating over her
overbearing and trying ways.
I’m completely shocked by
this. I thought she was my sister!
We were so close!
I asked for an apology, but
she says she did nothing wrong
and that my mother deserves to
Overshared by Sister-In-Law: If
this is exactly how things
transpired, then your sister-inlaw is a monster. That is a jawdropping abuse of trust, and I’d
be as devastated as you are.
I can’t imagine anyone who
would betray you that
thoroughly and profoundly
would also ever apologize
sincerely or change her ways —
not without a personality
transplant or a full-on
Dickensian epiphany.
So no, there isn’t much
promise in holding out for an
apology, but you can accomplish
quite a bit on your own just by
accepting the reality of the
people you’re dealing with.
Your sister-in-law — “Silvia” —
used you to gain favor with your
mother. That she did this over
years, without detection and
apparently without remorse,
makes this an extreme case, but
otherwise it’s actually a common
form of family dysfunction. The
moment you say something
negative about someone, an
opportunist can use that to forge
an alliance with your target. If
the target then trashes you, the
opportunist can share it with
you to burnish the appearance of
intimacy between you. I’ve seen
entire families use this tactic on
each other over years and years
of petty infighting.
With no realistic chance of an
apology from Silvia or your
mom, you’re looking at a
decision between having nothing
to do with your family again, or
remaining a much wiser, arm’slength participant in its
activities. You could choose both,
certainly, at different times,
depending on how you handle it.
For example, you can decide you
need a break from them as you
process this, and then
reintegrate yourself later on with
a different set of mental ground
rules. Maybe you’ll work toward
getting along with your mother
again but remain
conscientiously estranged from
Silvia.
One thing to consider: You can
also give your mom a sincere
apology, but not the one she
thinks you owe her. Apologize for
airing your complaints to
someone else and not to her
directly. She won’t like it, I
expect, but it’ll help you get right
with you.

about her. I asked my mother
for an apology for spying on her
adult daughter, and she said I
should apologize for the things
I’ve said.
This has made me feel like an
outsider in my own family, and I
don’t really want anything to do
with any of them. Can I hold out
for an apology? Or is this
basically where I have to decide
between an apology and ever
seeing my family again?

RE
School-age children need to make their feelings known to warring parents
Ask Amy
Dear Amy: I am a
teenage girl stuck
in a dysfunctional
AMY
household.
DICKINSON
My parents
can’t stand the
sight of each other. They
complain about one another to
me and my younger brother.
All of this has taken a mental
and emotional toll on us.
I have developed pretty strong
anger issues and have broken
many doors and light switches,
becoming enraged when my
parents scream at each other. My
brother has panic attacks due to
this, and I am often the one
consoling him during their
heated arguments.
I can’t sit them down and ask
if they can divorce; my dad
barely makes enough money to
cover our tuition, and I can’t
hurt them like that.
I leave for college in two years,
but the thought of leaving my
brother behind brings me to
tears.
I really need some sort of
guidance and advice.
Troubled Teen
Troubled Teen: I am so sorry
that your home life is like this.
Every kid deserves better, and
yet sadly many homes are like
yours.
If you have a favorite teacher,
librarian or counselor at school,
it could really help to talk this
out, and receive supportive
guidance from an adult.
You and your brother should
dive into every outside activity
you can. This achieves multiple
objectives: minimizing your time
in the household, developing
expertise and hobbies (and
hopefully having fun), and
forming relationships with
people who will be in your
corner.
You and your brother should
write a letter to your parents.
Work on it together. Describe

makes you feel — how scared,
angry and vulnerable you feel
when they fight with each other,
and how wrong it is for them to
trash each other to you two. Ask
them to stop.
In terms of your brother’s
future, first of all — thank you for
being a brave protector and a
champion to him. If things at
home don’t change, or if they get
worse, it might be best for him to
live elsewhere. Don’t keep this a

CLASSIC PEANUTS
f you could eliminate the
occasional bad shot ...
you’d be the first person who
ever did.” — John Jacobs, pro
golfer.
Everyone makes errors;
the winners keep the avoidable errors to a minimum. At
today’s five clubs, South took
the ace of spades and let the
eight of trumps ride. West
won, cashed a spade — East RHYMES WITH ORANGE
threw a diamond — and shifted to the queen of diamonds.
South took dummy’s
ace, led a heart to his ace,
drew trumps with the nine
and jack, and tried a heart
finesse with his 10. West produced the queen for down
one.
South committed a common error: the failure to
count. After he takes the ace LIO
of diamonds, he can ruff a
diamond and lead a trump to
dummy. When East discards,
South knows West had six
spades, three trumps and
two diamonds — so at most
two hearts. If East has Q-9-86, he is always due a heart
trick; a winning finesse won’t
gain.
So South draws the missing trump and takes the A-K
HAGAR THE HORRIBLE
of hearts as his only chance.

DAILY QUESTION
You hold:
A642J42
AJ5J98
Your partner opens one
club, you respond one spade
and he raises to two spades.
The opponents pass. What
do you say?
ANSWER: This case is
close. Your 11-point hand
would usually call for a try for
game though not a commitment to game. But the distribution is sterile, the trumps
are poor and the three
jacks make the hand worth
less than its point count. If
you’re vulnerable, try 2NT.
Otherwise, pass.

This year others
gravitate toward you.
Clear communication
allows greater giveand-take between you and
those around you. You enjoy
establishing better ways of
relating. If you are single, you

ILLUSTRATION BY SASHA BROWN, 7, RESTON
Baseball at its best, for more than a century
What most
Washington
baseball fans know
FRED BOWEN
about the World
Series is that the
Nationals are not playing in it this
year.
The World Series, however, has
been a big part of the American
sports scene for more than 100
years. Now that the Los Angeles
Dodgers and the Houston Astros
are playing in this year’s Fall
Classic, I thought we should look
back on World Series history.
The National League started
playing professional baseball in
1876, while the American League
began in 1901. The two leagues were
separate. National League teams
did not play American League
teams, although the two leagues
competed for players and fans.
In 1903, the Pittsburgh Pirates
were leading the National League
while the Boston Americans (later
the Red Sox) were dominating the
American League. Barney Dreyfuss,
the owner of the Pirates, had an idea.
He wrote Henry Killea, the
owner of the Americans, proposing
a “World Series” and saying, “It is
my belief that if our clubs played a
series on a best-of-nine basis, we
would create great interest in
baseball, in our leagues and in our
players.”
Dreyfuss was right. The World
Series was a big hit. More than
16,000 fans (a big crowd in the early
1900s) packed the Huntington
Avenue Grounds in Boston for the
first game. Some of the early
contests were so crowded that fans
stood in the outfield to watch.
The Americans beat the Pirates,
5-3 (fives games to three), with
Boston’s star pitcher, Cy Young,
leading the way. That’s the same Cy
The Score
Young whose name is on the annual
major league pitching award.
The leagues did not play a World
Series in 1904 because the New
York Giants won the National
League and the Giants owner, John
Brush, and manager, John McGraw,
did not like the American League
president.
The Giants agreed to play in 1905,
but Brush insisted that the series be
limited to no more than seven games.
The World Series has remained bestof-seven except in 1919 to 1921, when
it was best-of-nine.
The World Series is always
exciting — 38 of the winners have
needed the full seven games to earn
the championship — but here are
some highlights through the years.
1905: The Giants win the series,
4-1, with Hall of Famer Christy
Mathewson pitching a record three
shutouts.
1924: The Washington Senators
beat the Giants, 4-3. It is the first
(and last) World Series win for a
Washington team.
1956: Don Larsen pitches a
perfect game to win the fifth game
and to help the New York Yankees
beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in seven.
1989: A huge earthquake strikes
at the beginning of the third game.
The series between the Oakland A’s
and San Francisco Giants is delayed
10 days.
2016: The Chicago Cubs beat
the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, in the
seventh game to win their first
World Series in 108 seasons.
So watch the 2017 World Series.
It’s bound to make history.

Dogsledding is the latest sport to
be involved in a doping scandal, this
one involving the huskies in Alaska’s
1,000-mile Iditarod race.
It was disclosed Monday that four
dogs belonging to four-time Iditarod
champion Dallas Seavey tested
positive for a banned substance, the
painkiller tramadol, after his secondplace finish in March.
It was the first time since the race
started drug testing in 1994 that a test
came back positive.
Seavey strongly denied giving any
banned substances to his dogs and
suggested he may have been the
victim of sabotage.
“I did not give a drug to my dog.
I’ve never used a banned substance in
the race,” Seavey said.
Race officials said he will not be
punished because they were unable to
prove he acted intentionally.
The finding was another blow to
the Iditarod, which has seen
numerous dog deaths, attacks on
competitors and pressure from
animal rights activists, who say
huskies are run to death or left with
severe infections and bloody paws.

WEDNESDAY’S LA TIMES SOLUTION
BY
C ELIA W REN
This Shadow is more than an
absence of light: He has a roguish
personality and, with his blackand-white garb and makeup, an
undeniable natty flair. He sometimes seems to be the subversive id
of his full-color doppelganger, Peter Pan, but he’s not averse to a
decorous waltz. And with his hurtling leaps and lunges, he might
give Simone Biles a run for her
money.
Portrayed by Zana Gankhuyag,
the Shadow is one of many inspired elements in “The Adventures of Peter Pan,” a funny, fastpaced, visually arresting new
Synetic Theater production. It’s a
show that doesn’t shy away from
the darker currents in J.M. Barrie’s tale — Gankhuyag’s unsettling character (who is Peter Pan’s
shadow) is a case in point. But
director Paata Tsikurishvili and
his collaborators also include a
lagoon’s worth of lighter ingredients, including electric-bright
fairies; bickering, bumbling pirates; a Celtic step-dancing sequence; and a mermaid ballet.
Providing a gravitational center
for the whole fantasia, Peter Pan
(Alex Mills) radiates the right
emotionally blinkered cockiness
and ebullience.
Adapted from Barrie’s novel by
Ed Monk (assisted by Marley
Giggey and Tori Bertocci), and
choreographed by Irina Tsikurishvili, this “Peter Pan” is one
of Synetic’s talking productions.
One or two lines seem at odds
with the Edwardian-rooted vibe
(as when Peter asks another character “Why are you freaking
out?”). But in general, the dialogue flows nicely, delivering ample humor, incorporating original
Barrie lines, and never weighing
down the story. (Synetic recommends the show for age 7 and
older.)
Among the adaptation’s striking features is a significant backstory for Tinker Bell. Portrayed
with elfin verve by Ana Tsikurishvili, the fairy is a riveting figure
whose lime-green dress swirls
with tiny lights and whose
twitchy movements hint at the
feral energy she channels. (Kendra Rai designed the show’s expressive costumes.) Kathy Gordon’s plucky Wendy registers as
all the sweeter because she does
not notice Tinker Bell’s jealousy.
The appealing Lost Kids (Nate
Shelton, Anna Lynch and John
Milward), Peter Pan’s sidekicks,
push unicycles mounted with
wolf masks, and looklike a raggedy biker gang. Ryan Sellers
blusters drolly as the less-thancompetent Captain Hook, whose
squabbles with second-in-command Smee (Nathan Weinberger)
and other pirates (Rob Schumacher, Bertocci and Audrey
Tchoukoua) can be very funny.
The use of dialogue does not
mean the production stints on the
physical and visual ingenuity for
which Synetic is known. There
are fight sequences with clashing
blades; and montages of whirling
green-light fairies; and an appearance by the eerie Neverbird.
Characters clamber on Neverland’s rocks, which spin to reveal
the interior of the pirate ship.
(Daniel Pinha is scenic designer.
Co-director Vato Tsikurishvili
choreographed the fights. Konstantine Lortkipanidze composed the suspenseful music.)
The nonspeaking Shadow at
one point wrestles Peter Pan, a
sight that might bring joy to the
hearts of Jungian analysts. But
when Wendy sews Peter and his
Shadow back together, the two
align more quickly than you can
say “Never grow up.”

With each passing week, the
Washington Redskins’ biggest conundrum only seems to get trickier to solve. They have the league’s
sixth-ranked passing offense and a
quarterback who has topped
300 yards in three of his six games.
Yet the team’s wide receivers have
struggled to make any sort of impact. In fact, only once has a wide
receiver led the team in receiving
— way back in Week 1.
How bad have these early struggles been? Jamison Crowder is
Washington’s leading wide receiver with 19 catches. Forty-nine NFL
receivers have more. The recently
demoted Terrelle Pryor Sr. leads
the team’s wide receivers with 223
yards. Sixty-two NFL receivers
have more. Twenty-four teams, in
fact, feature at least two wide receivers who have more yards than
Washington’s most productive
wideout to date.
The struggles were perhaps
most pronounced in Monday’s 3424 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Kirk Cousins again was steady,
and the game plan was again passheavy. Yet the team’s wide receivers were non-factors. Of Cousins’s
30 completions, only 10 went to
his wideouts. He threw three
touchdown passes — two to tight
end Jordan Reed and one to running back Chris Thompson.

No. 195 with a bullet: Caps’ Djoos beats the odds
With two goals in his first six games, seventh-round pick carves out a role on Washington’s blue line

vancouver — The way Christian Djoos remembers his draft
day, watching and waiting as
194 picks went before him, his
excitement never waned even
when the final round arrived and
he still hadn’t been selected. In a
recent TSN study of drafts from
1990 to 2013, fewer than 10 percent of players picked as low as
Djoos have gone on to play at
least 100 NHL games, but following along from his home in Sweden, Djoos was just happy to hear
his name called.
“I didn’t have any hopes really,”
Djoos said. “I was just watching
because I knew I could be picked.
I had a good feeling actually.”
The Capitals had a good feeling, too. Going into that 2012
draft, Djoos was on Washington’s
list as a player the organization
would consider drafting in one of
the later rounds. Five years later,
as Djoos has started to carve out a
role on the Capitals’ blue line
with two goals in his first six
games, the two other seventhround picks the Capitals took

Players are typically drafted

Stern shifts
his position
on banning
marijuana
BY

D.C. SPORTS BOG
M ARISSA P AYNE
Former NBA commissioner David Stern, who tightened up the
league’s policy on marijuana during his tenure from 1984 to 2014,
has reversed his opinion on the
subject. In an interview with former NBA star Al Harrington, who
now works in the cannabis industry, Stern said marijuana “probably should be removed from the
banned substance list.”
Stern’s declaration came at the
end of a long conversation with
Harrington, who looked taken
aback after Stern’s statement.
“That’s huge,” said Harrington,
who began using cannabinoids, or
CBD, which do not contain the
psychoactive substance THC that
is commonly associated with marijuana highs, to treat an ongoing
knee injury.
Stern said given the decades in
which he ran the NBA, he believes
he still made the right choice to
tighten the league’s rules.
“Some of our players came to us
and said some of these guys,
they’re high coming into the
game,” Stern recalled. “At that
time, people generally accepted
that marijuana was a gateway
drug and if you start smoking
you’re liable to go on to bigger and
better stuff.”
Stern agreed with Harrington,
however, and said times have
changed.
“It’s a completely different perception” of marijuana, Stern said,
crediting a 2013 CNN documentary with helping to change his
mind. “I think there’s universal
agreement that marijuana for
medical purposes should be completely legal.”
Stern continued: “If you [Harrington] tell me that it worked for
you and it worked for other people, then we should find a way to
get that defined and made official
and then proceed to educate team
[physicians]. I think all of the
leagues are appropriately focused
on player training . . . player rehabilitation in the case of injury,
player nutrition, [and] . . . this
should be a part of that conversation.”

During a lengthy interview with
Taylor Rooks this month on her
podcast, Wall was asked whether NBA
observers haven’t ranked him as high as
they should. “Still don’t,” Wall replied.
Rooks asked him why that might be.
“I don’t know,” he said. “Politics. They
probably don’t like me. I don’t know. I
speak my mind, so I don’t hold my
tongue for nobody. And like I always
say, some people come in this league
and blossom very early. I didn’t have
that opportunity, because I dealt with
injuries, which I’m fine with. God has a
plan with everything, so my time is
now, and I’m taking full advantage of it.
“But yeah, I still don’t” get the
recognition, Wall went on. “Some
people are like, ‘Well, is he a top five
point guard?’ There’s only two people
that averaged 20 [points] and 10
[assists] last year other than me, and I
barely made an all-NBA team! So I use
all that as motivation. I mean, I was
what, I think top two in steals, number
one in steals maybe, and I didn’t make
all-defensive team. Because it’s all
politics about certain players. They
benefit from what they did in their past.
But when the time has come and they’re
not doing the same things they used to
do, you’ve got to get them off the books.”
Wall has his facts correct. James
Harden and Russell Westbrook were
the only other players to average 20 and
10 last season. And Wall finished
Retired NBA star calls

best point guard in league
second in steals per game, percentage
points behind Draymond Green and
percentage points ahead of Chris Paul.
Harden, Westbrook and Paul are
commonly mentioned above Wall on
the top point guards list, along with
Stephen Curry and sometimes Kyrie
Irving, Isaiah Thomas, Kyle Lowry and
Damian Lillard.
Anyhow, one analyst apparently has
a different list. ESPN’s Paul Pierce said
this week that he considers Wall “the
best point guard in the league.”
“First off, he’s so fast and dynamic,”
Pierce said in an online video segment
about Wall. “You can’t get up on him
and crowd him; that’s when he drives to
the hole. He’ll dunk on you with the left,
with the right. He has the handles of a
small guy even though he stands 6-3.
He has the speed of an NFL running
back. So you pretty much have to give
him space and let him shoot the
jumper. If not, he’ll embarrass you all
night.”
It’s worth noting that less than a year
ago, Pierce declared that Thomas was
“easily the best point guard in the
Eastern Conference.” (Which might
seem to be a contradiction, but the
Truth is large; it contains multitudes.)
Also, Pierce already has called Wall the
NBA’s best point guard at least once
before, in the spring of 2015, when they
were teammates in Washington.
“Top to bottom, he’s the best point
guard,” Pierce said during the 2015
playoffs. “You talk about Stephen Curry,
the amazing things he’s done, the
three-point shooting, but I just look at
overall game. You look at the way [Wall]
can score, the way he can pass, the way
he can defend. Top to bottom I think
he’s the best point guard in the league.”
More than two years later, Pierce is
still full of praise.
“John Wall’s speed is equivalent to
the Flash,” he said. “I mean, this guy,
he’s a blur in the open court. This guy’s
probably the fastest end to end with the
ball. If John Wall is running at you and
you’re a defender and he’s going full
speed, you’re pretty much at his mercy.
Expect to be on ‘SportsCenter’ that
night.”
Especially on nights when Wall is
already playing on ESPN, as he was
Wednesday night, in a high-profile
meeting with Lonzo Ball and the
Lakers. Which was occasion for L.A.
Coach Luke Walton to also be asked
whether Wall is sometimes overlooked
in the leaguewide conversation.
“I’m not in the leaguewide
conversation, so I don’t know how
overlooked he is,” Walton answered. “I
know from my personal view on him, I
think he is an elite, elite point guard in
this league.”
Walton also called Wall “the fastest
point guard — or any player in the
league — with the ball in his hands,
coast to coast.”
In the preseason conversation with
Rooks, Wall was asked how he can get
over the recognition hump.
“Me? If I don’t, I don’t care,” he
replied. “I know people know how good
I am playing basketball. . . . All I do is
just use it as motivation: keep getting
better, keep doing the same stuff and
doing it even better. People know.
They’ll look at my history book and my
legacy when I’m done, what type of
player [I was] and numbers I put up.
And sometimes you get snubbed. That’s
a part of it. . . . I’ve been snubbed my
whole life in a lot of things, but it
doesn’t bother me.”
Wall is right that he’s blunt; I think
he almost always tells the truth. But I
don’t believe those final four words.

‘Bubba’ is first full-time
black driver since 1971
Darrell Wallace Jr. will
become the first black full-time
driver at NASCAR’s top level
since 1971 when he takes over
Richard Petty’s iconic ride next
season.
The 24-year-old Wallace, more
commonly referred to by his
nickname “Bubba,” became the
first black driver to race at
NASCAR’s top level since 2006
when he replaced an injured Aric
Almirola earlier this year. At the
time, Petty recalled, he wasn’t
sure he wanted Wallace as a
replacement.
“We went round and round
when Aric got hurt about who we
was going to put in the car,” Petty
said Wednesday. “Bubba had
been running some races and
stuff. He was bad about
wrecking, I thought, so we had to
have a little talk with him, say,
‘You know, just go out and finish
the races and stuff.’ ”
In other words, race wasn’t an
issue.

considerations,” Petty said. “We

Master Tesfatsion answers reader questions. Here are two samples:
Q: Injuries are part of football,
but with so many key players
hurt on both sides of the ball, can
the Redskins recover to make a
playoff push?
A: The Philadelphia Eagles
(6-1) are playing so well right
now that it’s not even worth
looking at the NFC East standings unless they just have a
massive collapse. Looking at
their remaining schedule, beginning with a home game this week
against the winless San Francisco 49ers, it’s tough to see that
happening.
A wild-card berth is still very
much in play. The Redskins (3-3)
are one of eight NFC teams at
3-4, 3-3 or 4-3, so the landscape
suggests it would be foolish to
write them off in October.
The roster, however, is in bad
shape right now. Four starters
along the offensive line and six of
the nine on the active roster are
dealing with injuries. Five defensive backs are hurt. These two
spots are concerning during a
portion of the schedule that
appeared difficult even without
the injuries. After the loss to the
Eagles, the Redskins face the
Dallas Cowboys (3-3) and Seattle
Seahawks (4-2) the next two
weeks.
The Redskins may need to
earn at least a split in those
games to remain realistically in
contention.
Q: Looks like our depth on
defense is being depleted by
injuries. Does the aggressive approach by new defensive coordinator Greg Manusky have something to do with this?
A: I don’t think those two
things are correlated. Washington has tried to use its depth to
create different looks. Jonathan
Allen went on injured reserve
with a foot injury, but he was
part of a rotation defensive line
coach Jim Tomsula implemented
to keep those guys fresh. Outside
linebacker Preston Smith hurt
his groin, but he also has rotated
at the position.
Deshazor Everett has missed
two games with a hamstring
injury, but he was splitting time
with Montae Nicholson at strong
safety. Nicholson keeps hurting
his shoulder but plays through
the injury. I think his recurring
injury can be chalked up to his
style of play. Cornerbacks Fabian
Moreau (hamstring) and Stefan
McClure
(hamstring)
have
played almost exclusively on special teams.
The injuries to cornerbacks
Josh Norman (rib) and Bashaud
Breeland (knee) and linebacker
Mason Foster (shoulder)? You
just have to charge those to the

Struggling Fultz is shut down to get his shoulder and mind right
BY T IM B ONTEMPS
AND K ENT B ABB
Keith Williams has watched
Markelle Fultz with a keen eye for
more than a decade. The private
coach shepherded Fultz along
from a 7-year-old bundle of energy to a star at DeMatha to one
season at the University of Washington and, in June, to the No. 1
pick in the 2017 NBA draft by the
Philadelphia 76ers.
The Fultz whom Williams has
seen in the very brief start to his
pro career, though, is a far cry
from the player Williams helped
develop. The jump shot that became an essential part of Fultz’s
arsenal — and a major reason the
76ers traded up to draft the Upper Marlboro native — has disappeared, replaced by an odd-looking motion and a hesitancy the
player has not previously shown.
The development has led to
plenty of questions, including
why Fultz would change his
jumper at all and whether the
changes led to the shoulder inflammation with which he is now
dealing. To that, Williams has a
simple question: Why fix something that wasn’t broken?
“Hell no,” Williams told The
Washington Post when asked
whether he had worked with
Fultz to change his motion this
summer. “He was one of the best
shooting freshman point guards
ever [at Washington]. There was
no reason to ever change his shot.
“Why would I change his shot
when I taught him how to shoot?”
The 76ers have decided to shut
Fultz down for three games, starting with Wednesday night’s game
ROB CARR/GETTY IMAGES
Private coach Keith Williams said of 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz, above, “He just wants to be himself.”
against Houston. General Manager Bryan Colangelo said
Wednesday morning that he
wasn’t sure what came first:
Fultz’s shoulder inflammation or
the changes to his shooting mechanics that clearly have impacted the 19-year-old’s ability and/or
willingness to shoot from the
perimeter.
Williams, though, said the issues began shortly after Fultz
arrived in Philadelphia in early
September. Fultz’s shoulder began bothering him, Williams
said, and Fultz changed his shot
to compensate for the pain.
“Well, it is weird because we
can’t pinpoint when it happened,” Williams said. “It just
started bothering him, and what
it did initially was when he would
shoot he would feel some pain.
And so like most people he wanted to go away from the pain, so
the shot became more out, you
know what I’m saying? As opposed to tucked in like he was
normally shooting above his
head.”
Fultz is shooting just 33 percent from the field and has
looked nothing like the player
who dominated the Pacific-12
Conference a year ago. He now
looks like a player who lacks
either the health or the confidence to shoot from the outside.
At the free throw line, where he
has made 6 of 12, he has looked
even worse, with Fultz’s motion
being scrutinized frame-byframe on the Internet.
Williams and the 76ers agree
that Fultz has wanted to play and
that, by playing, there was no
chance of further injuring a
shoulder that has shown no
structural damage in multiple
examinations. But with Fultz not
looking like himself throughout
training camp and the preseason,
let alone in the first four games of
his pro career, both Fultz and the
76ers decided it would be best to
give him a breather to try to allow
his shoulder to heal and his mind
to clear.
“We are going to take a little bit
of a different approach as we
embrace this next week and try to
get him 100 percent healthy and
right,” Colangelo said. “There’s
been a lot of noise out there about
the pain and the impact on his
shot, and we’re just hopeful we
can kind of get this resolved once
and for all.
“But we’re extremely confident
it’s a situation that will be resolved and he will resume playing
at the level we all anticipate and
we expect from Markelle, being
the player that he is.”
There is no one more confident
in that happening than Williams,
the man who has been there for
every step of Fultz’s development.
But he admitted it has been tough
to watch Fultz struggle.
“He’s frustrated,” Williams
said, “and obviously I’m frustrated because I helped build this
engine, you know what I mean?
It’s not how it’s supposed to look.
“It’s been tough. He’s upset
because he knows he can kill it
but there’s opportunities he just
can’t take advantage of.
“He just wants to be himself.”

Aldridge and the Spurs win by keeping it together
Five-time all-star seemed to be on his way out of town. Then he recommitted to San Antonio and rediscovered his shot.
BY
T IM B ONTEMPS
Since LaMarcus Aldridge and
the San Antonio Spurs agreed to
join their houses in the summer
of 2015, the marriage has been
on the rocks.
Rumblings persisted for more
than a year that neither side was
thrilled with the arrangement,
and the Spurs openly tried to
ship Aldridge elsewhere this
summer.
That’s what made it surprising
last week when Aldridge and the
Spurs agreed to a contract extension that keeps him in San
Antonio for the next two years. If
both sides wanted to move on for
so long, why did they agree to
stay together?
But as Aldridge has gotten off
to a torrid start to this season,
lifting the Spurs to four straight
wins even as Kawhi Leonard
remains sidelined, the five-time
all-star believes the reason is
simple: He’s back to being himself.
“I’m
more
confident,”
Aldridge said in an interview
after San Antonio’s win in Chicago on Saturday. “I’m myself. I feel
like I’m back to who I was before
I came here.
“I feel like I’m getting different looks, and I feel like I’m in
the flow, and I’m involved, so I’m
always feeling like I can make a
read and take my shots. I feel like
at first I was trying to fit in and
trying what [Spurs Coach Gregg
Popovich] wanted me to be so
bad that I wasn’t being myself.”
Much has been made of the
sit-down between Aldridge and
Popovich this past summer, a
much-needed clearing of the air
after an uncomfortable first two
years in San Antonio. Since then,
Popovich has said that he regrets
trying to change Aldridge’s game
after the native Texan arrived in
San Antonio as a free agent,
blaming himself for Aldridge
feeling ostracized since becoming a Spur.
But whether the good vibes
on both sides are truth, lip
service or somewhere in between, the results on the court
speak volumes. Aldridge has
looked terrific, carrying San Antonio offensively and allowing
the Spurs to remain the same
old Spurs even as their No. 1
option sits out.
In doing so, however, one
thing has significantly changed:
Aldridge’s shot attempts. After
taking fewer than 15 per game
each of the past two seasons —
something that hadn’t happened
since his rookie season 10 years
ago — Aldridge is averaging
more than 20 shots through San
Antonio’s first four contests.
It’s no surprise the increased
volume has coincided with
Aldridge’s renewed confidence
level.
“He’s been sharp and in
rhythm,” Spurs center Pau Gasol
said. “It’s kind of what he’s used to.

Spencer Dinwiddie made the
go-ahead three-pointer with
43 seconds left while starting for
the injured D’Angelo Russell, and
the Brooklyn Nets overcame LeBron James’s first triple-double of
the season to beat the Cleveland
Cavaliers, 112-107, on Wednesday
night in New York.
James had 29 points, 13 assists
and 10 rebounds in his 56th tripledouble, but he missed two free
throws — the second intentionally
— with the Cavaliers trailing by
two with 7.6 seconds remaining.
DeMarre Carroll then hit a free
throw, and the Cavaliers’ long inbounds pass intended for James
went out of bounds.
Dinwiddie was starting at point
guard because of injuries to Russell and Jeremy Lin.

105, 76ERS 104:
Eric Gordon hit a three-pointer at
the buzzer to lift Houston in Philadelphia.
The 76ers were sloppy down the
stretch and used bad decisions
and bad plays to blow a lead that
had stretched to 11. Joel Embiid
was whistled for goaltending, and
the 76ers had Jerryd Bayless take a
shot with the game still on the line
instead of Embiid or Ben Simmons.
While the 76ers collapsed, the
Rockets pounced and scored the
final nine points.
Gordon scored 29 points, James
Harden had 27, and Clint Capela
had 16 points and 20 rebounds.
J.J. Redick scored 22 points,
Embiid had 21, and Robert Covington had 20 for the 76ers.
SPURS 117, HEAT 100: LaMarcus Aldridge continued his
hot start by scoring 31 points,
Rudy Gay added a season-high 22
off the bench, and San Antonio
won in Miami.
The win was No. 1,154 for San
Antonio Coach Gregg Popovich,
one shy of matching Phil Jackson
for sixth most in NBA history.
THUNDER 114, PACERS 96:
Paul George was held to 10 points
against his former team, but Russell Westbrook’s triple-double
(28 points, 16 assists, 10 rebounds)

93:
DARREN ABATE/ASSOCIATED PRESS
With the absence of injured star Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging more than 20 shots through the Spurs’ first four games.
“It’s the way he’s played his
entire career, knowing he’s going
to get 20-plus shots. That’s always comforting.”
This is what was expected —
probably by Aldridge as well —
when he arrived in San Antonio
two years ago. Until that point,
Leonard had been a nice complementary
piece
offensively,
steadily increasing his output
but never operating as anything
like the first option in an NBA
offense.
The expectation was that that
would continue — particularly
given that Aldridge had already
established himself as one of the
premier scoring bigs in the
league during his first nine seasons in Portland, where he averaged more than 20 points in five
consecutive seasons.
Pairing him with a defensiveminded forward who has never
seemed interested in having the
spotlight on him felt like a
perfect fit.
But Leonard surprised the
team by graduating to its No. 1
choice on offense two years ago,
then morphing into an MVP
candidate last season. In both
seasons, his shot attempts surpassed those of Aldridge.
So with a revived Aldridge,
what will happen when Leonard,
who remains out indefinitely
with tendinopathy in his right
quadriceps, eventually returns?
“I don’t know,” Aldridge admitted. “Right now it’s how it’s
going, so we’ll see. But I would
imagine that some of the things
we’re doing will continue, [but]
of course it’s going to tweak
because he’s our main guy.”
Leonard doesn’t seem to be on
the verge of coming back soon.
When asked about his star’s
status Saturday, Popovich said,
“I think it’s going to be weeks,
more than months. So that’s all I
know right now.”
Whenever Leonard does come
back, he’s unlikely to immediately return to where he was the
past two seasons.
Still, even if Aldridge’s shot
attempts drop when Leonard
comes back, the confidence
Aldridge has regained appears to
be here to stay. He brought up
being himself and playing with
confidence multiple times during the interview, reflecting a
newfound comfort level with his
place in San Antonio.
Part of that undoubtedly
comes from his relationship
with Popovich. Whether out of
desire, necessity or a combination of both, the conversations
the two men had this summer
seem to have changed things.
“Just being myself,” Aldridge
said. “He’s a great coach, and I
was trying to listen because I’m
not a bad guy. So I was listening
to what he said, but I was sort of
second-guessing myself and not
really playing my confident
game.
“Now he’s saying, ‘Go be
yourself.’ Of course, I might take
one shot that’s bad, but I’m not
a guy that’s going to keep doing
it, so I do one shot that I know
was bad and I fixed it, so I think
just knowing I have the freedom
to be myself has been great so
far.”
That newfound freedom has
Aldridge playing like his former
self. It also should help him
continue to thrive in San Antonio.

los angeles — Inside a hallowed
vs. Phoenix Suns
basketball gymnasium on the
UCLA campus — its squeaky hardwood and encased black chalkboard that once was used by John
Wooden serving as mementos of a
celebrated era — the Washington
Wizards gathered to play . . . Wiffle
ball.
The scene of millionaire professional basketball players whooping and wielding a skinny yellow
bat was captured by Washington’s
social media team and suggested
the Wizards were enjoying a light
Tuesday in Los Angeles. Markieff
Morris also posted video of his
teammates wearing practice garb
and enjoying a child’s game.
Later, Morris used the court to
show his most encouraging progress since undergoing abdominal
surgery.
Inside the UCLA Student Activities Center gym, Morris participated in a full-court game with teammates Jason Smith, Carrick Felix
and Devin Robinson. Although
Coach Scott Brooks joked that the
game should have been described
as “31/2 on 31/2,” noting that undersized team staffers had to jump in
to fill out the rosters, he was impressed while watching Morris
through the workout.
“He hit a couple of game-winners. He’s going pretty hard and
he’s feeling great,” Brooks said.
“It’s the next step of his progress
and return to play.”
Morris, who has not played this
season, scored, defended and ran
without complications Tuesday.
Brooks, however, does not expect
he will return before the end of the
team’s four-game West Coast trip.
The Wizards played the Lakers on
Wednesday night and face defending champion Golden State on Friday, which will mark the fifth week
of Morris’s recovery timeline. The
Wizards announced Morris would
miss six to eight weeks following
his Sept. 22 surgery. If Morris continues to improve, he could return
as early as Wednesday when the
Wizards host the Phoenix Suns or
Nov. 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“He’s definitely moving in the

Wall’s freebies
Through three games, these
Wizards still carry a similar identity to the team that advanced to the
Eastern Conference semifinals
last season — plenty of offensive
skill combined with an inability to
sustain effective defense — with
one notable difference. The Wizards entered play Wednesday
ranked third in the NBA in free
throw attempts per game (33.7), a
substantial bump from the 22.1
they averaged in 2016-17.
Much of the credit belongs to
John Wall’s willingness to draw
whistles. Through three games,
Wall led the NBA in free throw
attempts (11.7) and makes (10.0)
per game. Wall’s persistence to get
to the basket was on display during the team’s first game of the
West Coast road trip when he hit
13 of 15 free throws in Monday
night’s win over the Denver Nuggets.
Brooks riding with starters
Another trend from last season
is emerging through three games:
Washington’s reliance on its starters.
Even with a revamped bench
and one starter on the injured list,
Brooks continues to entrust the
game to his top five players. Entering Wednesday, Washington’s
starters averaged a league-high
32.9 minutes. The starters’ total
directly affects the rotation for the
second unit, and it should be no
surprise that the Wizards’ bench
players have logged less time per
game than any other team’s.
“I think our bench is really
good,” Brooks said. “We got a lot of
good, experienced players that
have that professional approach.
The thing — with no matter who
we have — we have a good starting
five. So sometimes it’s hard. I’ve
been in that position when I was
the backup to a really good point
guard and it’s not the same.”

NFL NOTES
Steelers bench unhappy Bryant for Sunday’s game
A SSOCIATED P RESS
The Pittsburgh Steelers have no
plans to trade Martavis Bryant.
They also apparently don’t have
any plans to play him. At least not
in Detroit.
Bryant indicated he will be inactive when the first-place Steelers visit the Lions on Sunday
night, the fallout from a social
media outburst in which the wide
receiver made it clear he’s unhappy with his role in the offense.
“I’m fine,” Bryant said Wednesday. “I ain’t tripping.”
Passionately defiant at times,
Bryant insisted he meant no ill
will when he suggested he was
better than rookie teammate JuJu
Smith-Schuster during an Instagram comment shortly after Pittsburgh beat Cincinnati last weekend. Bryant deleted his initial response and replaced it with one in
which he wrote he wanted to be on
a team where he could “gets mine.”
Given a few days to cool off,
Bryant instead doubled down,
even though Coach Mike Tomlin
called Bryant’s comments “out of
bounds.”
“I feel like I’m better than every
receiver or any receiver I played
with,” Bryant said. “For [JuJu], he
feels the same way. [Antonio
Brown] feels the same way. Justin
Hunter feels the same way. Everybody feel the same way.”
Bryant, tied for third on the
team with 18 receptions through
seven games in his return from a
year-plus suspension for violating
the NFL’s substance abuse policy,
stressed he believes he’s a “great
teammate.”
COWBOYS: A week after trying out for Washington, Mike Nugent will kick against them Sunday with Dallas.
Nugent didn’t get the job with
the Redskins, so instead he will fill
in for Dan Bailey, the most accurate in NFL history among kickers
with at least 100 attempts.
The Cowboys don’t know how
long Bailey will be out after he
injured his right groin — he’s a
right-footed kicker — in last
week’s 40-10 win at San Francisco.
BROWNS: DeShone Kizer
has been benched at halftime, during the week and in the third
quarter over the past three weeks.
Misbehaving kids don’t get
grounded as often as Cleveland’s
rookie quarterback, who wants to
avoid Coach Hue Jackson’s wrath
— and hook — and maybe finish a
game.
Yanked by Jackson last week
after throwing interceptions on
back-to-back passes, Kizer has
been granted another start Sunday in London as the winless
Browns face the Minnesota Vikings, who have one of the NFL’s
best defenses.
Kizer has been plagued by turnovers all season — his 11 picks lead
the league — and said he’s grateful
Jackson is showing confidence
that he can learn from his mistakes.
“It is another opportunity to go
out there and get it right for once,”
Kizer said.
Meanwhile, rookie defensive
end Myles Garrett could miss Sunday’s game after being placed in
concussion protocol.
PANTHERS: Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly practiced in
full pads, and Coach Ron Rivera
said he’s on pace to play Sunday
against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kuechly, a three-time allpro, suffered his third concussion
in three seasons Oct. 12 against the
Philadelphia Eagles.
CHARGERS: A person with
knowledge of the deal said Los
Angeles will trade wide receiver
Dontrelle Inman to the Chicago
Bears for a seventh-round pick.
JETS: Cornerback Buster
Skrine has a concussion, and his
status is uncertain for Sunday’s
game against the Atlanta Falcons.
It’s the third known concussion in
just over two years for Skrine, who
was injured Sunday at Miami.

Injury could sideline
Smith vs. Cowboys
Washington Redskins outside
linebacker Preston Smith is
dealing with a groin injury that
is severe enough to keep him out
of Sunday’s matchup against the
Dallas Cowboys, according to a
person with knowledge of the
situation.
Smith did not participate in
Wednesday’s closed walkthrough. Redskins Coach Jay
Gruden opted not to hold
practice because of the number
of injuries the team is dealing
with on a short week.
Smith suffered his injury
during the first half of Monday
night’s loss to the Philadelphia
Eagles. He played just 30 snaps,
which is about 15 fewer than
what he averaged over the first
five games (44.8).
Smith said after the game that
he attempted to return in the
second half but played “like two
snaps” before sitting out the rest
of the game. He still finished tied
for fourth on the team with five
combined tackles.
Smith, who turns 25 in
November, will continue to
receive treatment with the hope
that the injury will be better by
the end of the week, but the
Redskins have the luxury to
sideline Smith with three healthy
pass rushers — Ryan Kerrigan,
Junior Galette and rookie Ryan
Anderson — available.
“You can’t play like you want
to play, so you got to tone it down
and start the recovery process,”
Smith said after Monday’s game.
“I couldn’t move like I wanted to
move. I was hurting. I couldn’t
play on it or it would just get
worse.”
Smith, in his third season, has
emerged as a consistent pass
rusher this season. The team’s
second-round pick in 2015 leads
the team with 41/2 sacks, tying
Smith’s total from last season.
Smith was on track before the
injury to break his career high in
sacks (eight), set during his
rookie season.
Smith also has eight
quarterback hits this season. He
did not record a hit Monday after
doing so in the previous five
contests.
“When I got in there, I tried
my best to make something
happen, but I was hurting too
bad,” Smith said.
Five other players did not
participate in the walk-through:
left tackle Trent Williams (knee),
right guard Brandon Scherff
(knee/back), center Spencer
Long (both knees), linebacker
Zach Brown (back) and backup
offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe (core
muscle).
Cornerback Josh Norman
(rib), offensive tackle Morgan
Moses (both ankles), linebacker
Mason Foster (shoulder), safeties
Deshazor Everett (hamstring)
and Stefan McClure (knee/
hamstring), cornerback Fabian
Moreau (hamstring) and guard
Tyler Catalina (concussion) were
all estimated as limited.
With the amount of injuries
along the offensive line, the
Redskins signed veteran Tony
Bergstrom to the active roster
and released defensive lineman
A.J. Francis as a corresponding
move.
Bergstrom, 31, has played in
44 games and made four career
starts. Listed at 6-foot-5 and
315 pounds, Bergstrom was a
third-round pick by the Oakland
Raiders in 2012.
Bergstrom has spent this
season on and off with the
Baltimore Ravens. Listed as a
center/guard, Bergstrom was
active for four games until he
was released Monday.

REDSKINS FROM D1
age, run the right routes and all
that stuff and make plays when
the ball is distributed to them.”
As they prepare for Sunday’s
showdown against the Dallas
Cowboys, Washington coaches
seem to be exploring their options.
Josh Doctson is expected to retain
the starting spot, and for at least
the near future Pryor could be
limited to 20 to 30 snaps per game,
a far cry from the 61 snaps he
played two weeks ago against the
San Francisco 49ers.
Coaches clearly want to see
whether Doctson, the second-year
receiver who was sidelined with
an injury most of last season, has
the potential to be the playmaker
who has been missing from the
passing game.
“We’ll see how it goes moving
forward,” Gruden said. “Right now
I think we wanted to get Josh in
there a little bit more and see how
he did. Josh did some good things,
some things we need to clean up;
same with Terrelle every week.
Just going to continue to coach
those guys up, try to play the hot
hand, play the guys who are fresh
and go from there.”
After the Redskins said goodbye to DeSean Jackson and Pierre
Garcon, Pryor was pegged as a
potential playmaker in the preseason. But his impact has been
minimal. Through six games a
year ago with the lowly Cleveland
Browns, he had 33 catches.
Through six games this season, he
has only 18, including two in Monday’s loss.
Pryor opened the season with
66 yards on six catches in the
JOHN MCDONNELL/THE WASHINGTON POST
The Redskins’ Jamison Crowder caught two passes for 28 yards
from quarterback Kirk Cousins in the loss to the Eagles on Monday.
Redskins’ first meeting against
the Eagles but hasn’t had more
than three catches in any game
since. Not only did he start Monday’s game on the sideline, he
played just a single snap in the
first half and didn’t register a
catch until more than four minutes had passed in the fourth
quarter.
“It’s a work in progress,” Cousins said of Pryor. “I don’t want to
write a narrative until really we
have a full sample size of the season. There’s still a lot of football
left. There’s no reason why he can’t
have a very strong 10 games here
and really finish strong this season.”
With an increased role, Doctson finished the game with a career-high three catches. Though
Pryor played 29 snaps in the sec-
ond half Monday, he said after the
game that he struggled to find a
rhythm when he finally entered
the game.
“Going in the second half, it’s
like, we’re down 14 or whatever —
it’s tough to get involved, just get
myself mentally” into it, he said.
“That’s something I have to keep
getting better at. As a professional,
I know I get paid, but you know, a
lot goes into it.”
Both Gruden and Pryor’s teammates downplayed the significance of the benching, saying the
Redskins like their depth at the
position and simply want to get
Doctson more involved. The Redskins have Doctson slated to start
at the “X” spot — on the line of
scrimmage opposite the tight end
— while Crowder, who has been a
slot receiver, moves over as the
starting “Z” receiver with Grant.
That means Pryor could be the odd
man out in three-receiver sets.
“It’s just a matter of trying to get
everybody happy here. It’s hard,”
Gruden said. “They’re all worthy
of playing, but they all have to wait
their turn and be patient and,
when their number is called, produce.”
But even if Gruden likes his
options, the Washington passing
game has still hinged much more
on the hands of the tight ends and
running backs.
The Redskins are one of eight
NFL teams that have yet to boast a
100-yard effort from a wide receiver in a game. Certainly, some of
this is by design — and comfort.
Cousins has had plenty of success
targeting Thompson out of the
backfield and finding tight ends
Reed and Vernon Davis mismatched against linebackers.
“Gruden’s all about the tight
ends,” Davis said. “He loves getting
the ball to Jordan Reed. He just
has a track record of building an
offense that’s friendly to the tight
end position. Like I said, when it
comes to the wide receivers, we
have to go out and keep getting
better. We have some of the top
wide receivers in the league right
now — Crowder, Pryor. I feel like
we have all the pieces we need.”
As the Redskins prepare for the
Cowboys and a contest that could
say a lot about the direction the
rest of the season might go in,
they’re still trying to figure out
how all those pieces fit together.

With suspension threat hanging over him, Cowboys’ Elliott keeps focus on field
BY
L IZ C LARKE
Uncertainty has loomed over
Ezekiel Elliott since Aug. 11,
when the NFL suspended him
for six games for violating the
league’s personal conduct policy.
But the second-year running
back hasn’t missed a start for the
Dallas Cowboys, granted a series
of procedural reprieves as he
fights the conclusion and consequences of a year-long NFL investigation that found he used
physical force against a former
girlfriend in July 2016.
The next step in the process
comes Monday — the day after
the Washington Redskins (3-3)
host the Cowboys (3-3) in an NFC
East battle for second place in
the division standings — at a
hearing for a preliminary injunction. If the injunction is not
issued, it’s likely his suspension
would begin the following week.
If so, it would be the NFL’s third
attempt to enforce the suspension; the previous two instances
— ahead of Week 1 and again
before the Cowboys’ Week 6 bye
— were delayed by legal maneuvering from the NFL Players
Association that continues to
play out in the court system.
Asked during a conference call
with Redskins reporters Wednesday how he has handled the
situation, Elliott said: “I take it
week by week. Every week I
prepare like I’m going to play.”
Beyond that, he had no interest in elaborating.
“Hey, I agreed to do this call
because I was going to talk about
football and this season,” Elliott
said when asked whether it had
been difficult to focus. “I’m not
going to do the whole conference
about that. I’m not talking about
that anymore.”
Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett
painted the picture of a laser-focused back when he was asked
how Elliott has handled the matter.
“Obviously there’s a lot of
things going on off the field with
him, but you wouldn’t know it if
you were around him each and
every day,” Garrett told reporters. “His preparation’s excellent.
He always seems focused and
dialed in on what he needs to do
to get himself ready to play each
weekend. One of the themes that
we have for our team is you have
to control what you can control.
. . . He controls his preparation,
his performance. That’s foremost
in his mind.”
Elliott (6-foot, 225 pounds) is
coming off a career performance
in the Cowboys’ 40-10 throttling
of San Francisco last week, in
which he rushed for 147 yards
and two touchdowns and turned
a screen pass into a 72-yard
touchdown reception.
As a rookie, Elliott had big
games against the Redskins in
2016. The Cowboys swept both
meetings, and Elliott tallied a
combined 180 yards and three
touchdowns on 41 carries in
them.
Through six games this season, Elliott has 540 yards (on
131 carries) and four touchdowns. That’s more than twice
the rushing production of the
Redskins’ top back, third-down
specialist Chris Thompson, who
through six games has 213 yards
and two touchdowns.
Dallas boasts the NFL’s second-ranked rushing attack, averaging 147.5 yards. The Redskins’
ground game ranks 14th
(114.8 yards).
Elliott said he hadn’t noticed
that NFL defenses play him any
differently in Year 2 now that
they have a season’s worth of film
of his performance.
“We approach every game the
same,” Elliott said. “We want to
go in there and run the ball. They
stack the box and make it tough
for us to run, but that’s just how
it has been.”
As for his evolution in his
second pro season, Elliott said
it’s mainly mental.
“I definitely feel a lot more
comfortable in the offense,” he
said. “I can anticipate my reads a
lot easier.”

Low pick, high rate of return: Djoos is thriving
CAPITALS FROM D1
later-round picks have something
to prove,” said Ross Mahoney, the
Capitals’ assistant general manager who oversees amateur scouting. “They probably want to
prove that we’re wrong and we
should’ve taken them higher in
the draft.”
When Mann first saw Djoos, he
privately wondered how his skinny frame — he’s listed as 6 feet,
169 pounds for this season —
would translate to the grueling
NHL. Washington’s scouts had
the same concerns, which was the
main reason he was taken so late
in the draft. But what Djoos
lacked in size and strength, he
often made up for in vision on the
ice, playing with a poise that was
attractive to Vojtech Kucera and
Mats Weiderstal, the two scouts
who watched him play most in
Sweden.
“He was a really, really intelligent player at a young age,” Mahoney said. “. . . Christian played a
lot of power play, and he just had
that ability to hold on to it, hold
on to it and either wait until
players got open on his team or he
could look players off and make a
pass to the player that was open.”
If that sounds familiar, it’s
because Capitals center Nicklas
Backstrom is known for that
same patience on the power play.
When Djoos’s father, Per, played
for the Brynas club in Sweden,
Backstrom’s father was the team’s
general manager. A young Backstrom would be in the locker
room with his dad when an even
younger Djoos was there with his.
While Djoos faintly remembers
that, it was watching Backstrom
from afar that had the bigger
influence.
“I remember when Nick played
[for Brynas],” Djoos said. “I was
like 10 years old, and he was the
biggest player. He was our idol.
Every young guy in our town
wanted to be playing like him. We
were watching him from the
stands. . . . I liked the game he
plays. Those guys hold the puck
and always try to make a play, and
I like that.”
Djoos now trains with Backstrom in their home town during
the offseason. From the moment
Djoos was drafted, the Capitals
worked with him to formulate a
plan to bulk up. But as Djoos was
mostly trying and failing to make
significant changes to his body
composition, the NHL was

changing in Djoos’s favor. The
league started to shift toward
speed and puck-moving and away
from physicality.
“You don’t really need to be
overly big in today’s NHL,” Backstrom said.
To that point, Djoos finished
with 13 goals and 45 assists in the
AHL last season, averaging nearly a point per game and announcing himself as a front-runner to
contend for a roster spot with the
Capitals going into this season.
“I don’t see Djoos all of a
sudden putting on 30 pounds of
muscle. I just don’t think his body
has that makeup, you know?”
Mann said. “. . . His hockey IQ and
his ability to dodge hits, that’s his
biggest strength.”
“To me,” Capitals Coach Barry
Trotz said, “that’s what separates
him from another pick who
might be a little bigger, a little
faster and might even look like a
better prospect when you’re
drafting them back when they’re
18 years old. Those type of players
find ways to be successful at every
level, and he’s one of those guys
that has had good success. Might
take him a little time, but he’s a
little bit of a chess player, if you
will. He understands the bigger
game and the next move.”

BASEBALL NOTES
Not so crazy idea: Nationals should try to pry Girardi from Yankees McCullers
SVRLUGA FROM D1
framework for the job: Regular
season victories by the bushel
and division titles followed by
division titles aren’t enough. The
goal here is a World Series.
Girardi, then, fits a tiny group
of potential candidates who can
check that box. So do Tony La
Russa and Jim Leyland, but they
have both retired from the
dugout, and, at 53, Girardi’s got
two decades on the old horses,
whose wars are behind them.
Sure, John Farrell has a World
Series title, the championship
secured by the 2013 Boston Red
Sox in Farrell’s first season as
skipper at Fenway Park. But
hiring Farrell would be almost
completely about that title. In
seven seasons as a manager —
two in Toronto, five in Boston —
Farrell posted a winning record
three times, a losing record three
times and one flatline 81-81
mark. He has three division
titles but four finishes of fourth
or worse, including two in dead
last, both with the Red Sox.
Plus, examining Farrell’s
recent postseason record next to
that of the just departed Dusty
Baker — who was not invited
back by Washington because he
couldn’t get past the first round
— wouldn’t be particularly
flattering. Dusty’s Nats pushed
both the Los Angeles Dodgers
and the Chicago Cubs to a fifth
game. Farrell’s Red Sox were
swept by Cleveland and lost in
four games to Houston. Is that
an upgrade?
Girardi, we know, would be.
He managed the powerhouse
Yankees left behind by Hall of
Famer Joe Torre (Hmmmmm. Is
he worth a call, too? Nah. Stay
focused.) and won with them,
four straight playoff
appearances, including the
Yankees’ last World Series
championship, back in 2009. He
dealt with the Yankees’ aging,
expensive and inflexible roster
and then managed the transition
over the past two summers to
this new, athletic, powerful core
that looks like it will restore
order in the Bronx for years to
come.
Therein lies the important
question: Why, with Aaron
BOB LEVEY/GETTY IMAGES
Joe Girardi managed the Yankees to a World Series win in 2009 and has led them through a rebuild.
Judge and Gary Sanchez and
Didi Gregorius and Luis
Severino all in pinstripes for the
foreseeable future, would
Girardi want to move on from
the Yankees?
Well, in 2018, the Nationals
could counter with Bryce
Harper, Max Scherzer, Stephen
Strasburg, Daniel Murphy,
Anthony Rendon — and more.
Plus, Girardi has managed in
New York for 10 seasons. That
has to be trying and tiring — and
not just with the baseball
demands but given the media
glare. The D.C. baseball media?
It’s neither self-deprecating nor
flattery to say we’re a bit
different from the back pages in
New York. This could be a nice,
safe spot to continue a career
with a real chance to win it all —
and, in doing so, take a stride
toward the Hall of Fame.
So if you’re the Lerners, why
not just ask? Girardi doesn’t
sound all-in with the Yankees
anyway.
“I love what I do,” Girardi told
the assembled reporters after
that game Saturday night in
Houston. “. . . I always talk to my
family first. They come first
because, I think, when you have
a job, your family has to buy in,
too.”
Now, this is a familiar refrain
for Girardi — one that dates back
a decade and even involves the
Nationals.
“I think it’s a wonderful job,”
Girardi told me in a phone
conversation 11 years ago this
month, speaking of the Nats.
“But I think I came to the
conclusion at this time that it’s
not the right move for my
family.”
Then, the Nationals were
looking for a replacement for
Frank Robinson, the first
manager when baseball returned
to the District, the first let go by
the Lerner family. Girardi, back
then, was coming off a single
season managing the thenFlorida Marlins, after which he
was fired following contentious
confrontations with ownership.
Even all those years ago, we
learned something about the
Lerners and managers. In
pursuing their first skipper, the
man who would be entrusted
with keeping spirits up during a
massive rebuilding process, they
showed their disregard for the
position. Jim Bowden, the
general manager at the time, has
said since that the Lerners
wouldn’t pay what it cost to
employ Girardi, so the club
moved on to Manny Acta.
Girardi, too, knew Torre was
nearing the end of his time with
the Yankees, for whom he served
as a World Series-winning
catcher from 1996 to 1999. So
spending time with his family
lasted only the 2007 season, and
then Girardi took Torre’s old job.
So what we’re asking here is
not just for Girardi to leave
behind all that history and
tradition at Yankee Stadium, and
we’re not just hoping that he
continues to ask his family to
make the sacrifices necessary to
put up with a baseball lifestyle.
(To be clear, his family’s
“sacrifice” recently has been to
watch Daddy go away for six
months but to the tune of a fouryear, $16 million contract.)
What we’re asking for, more
directly, is for the Nationals —
and not the front office but
ownership — to understand the
value of strong, stable leadership
and the cost to bring it here.
They had that with Baker, but
for whatever reason — Rizzo
called it a “pure baseball
decision,” so in-game strategy
had to play a part — they
dumped it.
Nothing against Dave
Martinez, the bench coach for
the Cubs, or Kevin Long, the
hitting coach for the New York
Mets. Both seem like qualified
candidates, and both are due to
interview in Washington.
But a call to Girardi would
represent more. It would
represent ambition. It would
represent transformative
thinking on the part of
ownership, thinking that would
be on par with the rest of the
industry. It would require a
financial commitment — at least
$4 million annually — that
would represent an
understanding that managers
are important, that winning a
championship doesn’t happen by
accident.
“We’ll see what the Yankees
are thinking,” Girardi said
Saturday.
The Nats don’t need to see
what the Yankees are thinking.
The Nats can commit to paying
an established manager what an
established manager is worth.
The Nats can pick up the phone.
The Nats can call Joe Girardi.
And by doing so, the Nats could
soften the blow of Baker’s
departure and have all of
baseball wondering about a
World Series in Washington a
year from now.

scheduled
for Game 3
for Houston
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Lance McCullers Jr. will start
Game 3 of the World Series for the
Astros on Friday when the series
goes to Houston, and Charlie Morton will open Game 4.
Astros Manager A.J. Hinch had
held off announcing the order of
his rotation until Wednesday.
McCullers did not get a decision
in his one postseason start, when
he allowed one run over six innings
in Game 4 of the American League
Championship Series at Yankee
Stadium. He gave up two runs over
three innings of relief in Game 3 of
the division series at Boston, and
he followed Morton with four
scoreless innings to close out
Game 7 against the Yankees on
Saturday, when he finished with
24 consecutive breaking pitches.
Yu Darvish will start Game 3 for
the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Alex
Wood will go in Game 4.
Pedroia to miss start of 2018
Red Sox second baseman
Dustin Pedroia is expected to miss
more than a month of the 2018
season after left knee surgery.
The team said that Pedroia had
surgery to restore the cartilage in
his left knee. The Red Sox said he
will return to games in seven
months, which would put him
back in the lineup in late May.
The 2007 AL rookie of the year
and the AL MVP in his second
season, Pedroia played in just
105 games last season. He batted
.293 with seven homers and
62 RBI.
Stanton unsure of future
Giancarlo Stanton still hasn’t
met with the Miami Marlins’ new
leadership, including Derek Jeter,
amid speculation the team will
unload its most expensive player
to cut payroll.
Stanton said he expects to meet
with ownership after the World
Series. He was in Los Angeles before Game 2 to accept the Hank
Aaron Award as the National
League’s top offensive performer.

M2
world series
MARK J. TERRILL/ASSOCIATED PRESS
The Astros looked down and out in the ninth inning Wednesday night against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen. Then Marwin Gonzalez, above, homered to tie the game and silence the Dodger Stadium crowd.
Houston takes long way home, evens series with Dodgers
SERIES FROM D1
that as well.
“It’s an emotional high to low
to high to low to high again,”
Springer said.
Well, there was still the matter
of the three remaining outs the
Astros’ embattled bullpen was
required to secure. There would
be one last towering fly ball to
leave the yard — because why
not? — before that would occur.
And then, at last, there would be
finality.
This World Series is in desperate need of a breather after the
Astros’ 7-6 victory in Game 2, and
it will get exactly that as the
teams travel to Houston, with an
off-day Thursday. On Friday
night at Minute Maid Park,
Houston’s Lance McCullers Jr.
will face Yu Darvish with the
series tied at a game apiece.
This one wasn’t over until
Houston reliever Chris Devenski
struck out Yasiel Puig to finish off
the 11th. Moments earlier, the
Dodgers’ Charlie Culberson had
homered off Devenski to pull the
Dodgers to within one run.
Springer’s homer scored Cameron Maybin, who had led off the
11th against McCarthy, the Dodgers’ seventh pitcher, with a single
up the middle, then stole second.
McCarthy fell behind Springer
2-0, came back with a strike that
Springer fouled off, then served
up the fateful slider, low and
right down the middle, that
wound up in the seats.
Two innings earlier, the Astros
had been down to their final
three outs, staring into the abyss
of a two-game series deficit and
would need to rally against Jansen, the Dodgers’ great closer, to
extend the game. But with one
stunning swing of the bat, Marwin Gonzalez against a 94-mph
cutter from the best postseason
closer on the planet, the Astros
gave themselves a new life. And
with two more swings of the bat
in the 10th inning, Jose Altuve
and Carlos Correa against Dodgers right-hander Josh Fields, the
Astros had a 5-3 lead.
It was the first time they
thought they had stolen a victory.
But they would need to do it all
over again in the 11th.
In the bottom of the 10th, Puig
homered off Astros closer Ken
Giles to pull the Dodgers to
within a run, and four batters
later Enrique Hernandez singled
home Logan Forsythe with the
tying run as 54,293 fans — silenced just minutes earlier by
CHRISTIAN PETERSEN/GETTY IMAGES
Jose Altuve continued the night of long balls with a solo home run
in the 10th inning. Carlos Correa followed with another shot.
Jansen’s blown save and the
Astros’ go-ahead runs — exploded anew. Hernandez took second
on the throw home and was
gifted third base by an errant
pickoff throw, but the throw,
which was otherwise headed
into center field, hit Diaz, the
umpire, square in the torso,
keeping Hernandez at second.
The Astros were trailing by
two runs, and the Dodgers’ bullpen was beginning work on its
fourth consecutive shutout — or
its cobbled-together equivalent,
with the bullpen’s string of scoreless innings this postseason having grown to 28 straight — when
Morrow and Jansen combined to
allow an Astros run in the eighth.
Morrow gave up a leadoff double
to Alex Bregman, off the glove of
a diving Puig in right, and Jansen
surrendered a dribbling grounder up the middle by Correa,
which snuck through for an RBI
single to make it 3-2.
Jansen got out of the inning
without further damage, but on
his third pitch of the ninth
inning, Gonzalez took a massive
cut at a 94-mph cutter — the
pitch that had made Jansen a
superstar and had earned him an
$80 million contract this winter
— and connected, sending it
sailing over the wall in left-center. The Astros celebrated wildly
in their dugout, with shortstop
Carlos Correa spilling out halfway to the first base line as
Gonzalez circled the bases. The
game was tied.
The Dodgers hadn’t faced a
scenario like this in what felt like
forever. Their paint-by-numbers
bullpen — so deep and effective
and deadly anyone in the crowd
at Chavez Ravine could have
made Manager Dave Roberts’s
moves for him in Game 2 — had
carried a slim lead into the ninth
Wednesday night, only to see the
impossible happen. Jansen, the
anchor leg of a bullpen relay that
was beginning to look unbeatable, had given up the lead. The
crowd fell silent.
There wasn’t supposed to be
another bullpen move. Where do
you turn after Jansen? The answer, apparently, was Fields. But
it was the wrong answer. Altuve,
0 for 4 in the game to that point,
jumped on a 2-0 fastball, clocked
at 97 mph, and sent it over the
wall in left-center. The Astros led
4-3. Silence across the stadium.
Two pitches later, Fields tried
to sneak a curveball past Correa,
but the Astros’ 23-year-old allstar shortstop, crushed it over
the fence in left-center, punctuating his homer with a majestic
bat-flip before beginning his trot
around the bases. The Dodgers’
3-1 lead had been inverted into a
5-3 deficit.
But that deficit — or was it
that lead? — would be inverted a
second time, to 7-5, Astros. Or
would that mean it reverted to its
original form? In either case, the
World Series departs Los Angeles
in a 1-1 knot, and there will be
three games in Houston this
weekend. And it is anyone’s
guess where the whole thing goes
from here.

THOMAS BOSWELL
Hello, Los Angeles, we’re the Astros. And we don’t go gently into that good night.
BOSWELL FROM D1
CRASH, SMASH. What you are
watching with dropped jaws, Mr.
and Mrs. Los Angeles, are backto-back long-gone home runs
deep into the left-center field
bleachers in the 10th inning off
reliever Josh Fields, the deep-inthe-bullpen fellow the Dodgers
never dreamed they would have
to use.
Finally, let us give you a
formal introduction to George
Springer, our leadoff hitter, who
struck out four times in Game 1.
After you Dodgers, and we freely
admit that you are an incredible
bunch of foes, tied the game in
the bottom of the 10th at 5 on a
booming Yasiel Puig homer and
a two-out RBI single by pinchhitter Kike Hernandez off our
closer Ken Giles, we still had
Springer left to give you our best
wishes.
Springer who already had a
walk, single and double in Game
2, finally struck the game-
winning two-run homer over the
right field fence — after
midnight back East — off
Brandon McCarthy in the top of
the 11th.
Those four Astros homers, by
Gonzalez, the 5-foot-6 mightyman Altuve, Correa and finally
Springer may have gotten the
attention of all of sports America
and several other countries as
well.
Now we have a World Series.
Now we have a one-game-apiece
battle that will resume Friday
night in Houston. Both these
teams have now dealt
thunderous blows to each other.
The Astros used their aces,
Dallas Keuchel and Justin
Verlander, in the first two games,
fellows who are considerably
better than the rest of their solid
but unspectacular rotation.
Yet without for Gonzalez
fabulous, clutch, game-saving,
and probably Series saving,
homer, the trumping of the two
Astros aces would be the theme
of this Series. Now, the Astros
have a mighty symbol of their
own strength in the bashing of
Jansen.
Message: Nobody’s safe!
To prove it, the Dodgers
responded to the back-to-back
Altuve and Correa homers as few
teams ever have in the World
Series — with a two-run 10th
inning rally off a first-rate closer
in Giles. First, there was a titanic
homer to left by Puig. He can
pump that one all he wants. It
cut the lead to 5-4. But the
Dodgers weren’t finished as a
walk, a wild pitch and an
incredibly clutch, down to the
last out RBI single by Hernandez
into right field tied the game
once more. Perhaps that should
have been expected after
Hernandez’ three home runs in
the Dodgers’ National League
Championship Series-clinching
win over the Cubs last week.
If the Dodgers had continued
that comeback to win in the
10th, Los Angeles County might
have run out of defibrillators.
Instead, the game carried on, so
Springer, who had been in a
slump for a week, could have the
final say.
Well, not quite. Down to their
last out in the 11th, the Dodgers’
Charlie Culberson smashed his
own homer into the left-field
pavilion to produce the final 7-6
score. If Puig, who made the final
out, had also homered, even he
might have run out of ways to
celebrate himself and all of this
Dodger-blue ballpark might have
collapsed in adulation. Just as
well he didn’t. This game was
about five wonderful games
roiled in one.
Oh, goody. Can we do this for
like, oh, four or five more games,
please?
Perhaps the central moment,
among so many, in this game was
the emotional swing in the ninth.
Nobody hits ninth-inning home
runs off Jansen. All 265 pounds
of him is just too tough. Jansen is
the Mariano Rivera of this
generation and the greatest
symbol of Dodger strength.
Somebody forgot to tell
Gonzalez, a formidable slugger
who only merits the No. 7 spot in
a Houston batting order that led
the majors in runs scored this
season by dozens. Leading off the
ninth inning, Gonzalez thrashed
a 94.4 mph. cutter over the
center field fence. At that
moment, this World Series was
transformed from a probable
romp by the Dodgers into what
will likely be a long and perhaps
magnificent battle.
The Astros did not just bash
Jansen in the ninth. The Dodgers
asked Jansen for a six-out save.
In the eighth, he allowed an
inherited runner to score.
Ultimately, after Puig’s home run
in the bottom of the 10th cut the
Astros lead to 5-4, Correa’s
homer, which was more like
window dressing than insurance
at the time, proved to be the
winning Astro run.
The importance of this Astros
escape cannot possibly be
overstated.
In the past 36 years, 14 teams
have won the first two games of
the World Series on their home
field. What has happened after
that has defied probability.
Those 14 teams have all gone on
to win the World Series. But they
have also done it by, in most
instances, crushing their foe 2812 in games once they got their
foe down. If Gonzalez —
remember that name, Marwin
Gonzalaez — had not done what
almost no one has done against
Jansen in the last eight years, the
Astros would be looking down
the barrel of those numbers.
Now, instead, we have a game,
even if it was only a Game 2, that
will be worth replaying as long
they keep insisting on playing
this thing called the World
Series.

After FBI investigations, focus still on Louisville in ACC
At league’s media day,
interim coach Padgett
says team has moved on
BY
G ENE W ANG
charlotte — In the immediate
aftermath of a federal investigation in which Louisville found
itself ensnared, interim university president Greg Postel said he
was both “angry” and “embarrassed.”
Cardinals senior forward-center Anas Mahmoud, speaking
Wednesday at the ACC men’s
basketball media day, offered an
entirely different reaction to the
fallout from improprieties that
ultimately cost former Louisville
coach Rick Pitino his job.
“Practice is a lot more fun, a lot
more relaxed,” Mahmoud said.
“It’s competitive but it’s fun, and
that comes out as a good sign.
“It’s just a great atmosphere.”
David Padgett is serving as the
Cardinals’ interim coach after
Louisville officially dismissed Pitino on Oct. 16, 19 days after
school officials acknowledged the
men’s basketball program was
under investigation as part of an
FBI corruption probe that includes other schools’ men’s basketball programs. Pitino, who
directed Louisville to the 2013
national championship, had been
placed on administrative leave
for his alleged involvement in
CHUCK BURTON/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Louisville players said interim men’s basketball coach David Padgett engenders a relaxed atmosphere.
diverting $100,000 to the family
of an unnamed recruit.
Padgett, 32, a former assistant
under Pitino who also played for
him from 2005 to 2008, offers a
different demeanor from his
mentor, whom Mahmoud recalled as holding “a really strong
personality over everyone.”
“What Coach DP has, he just
keeps us all calm,” Louisville
senior guard Quentin Snider
said. “He makes things fun. He
jokes with us and stuff.”
Said Padgett: “I think just trying to make the best of a difficult
situation for the players. It was a
tough week, a tough couple of
weeks there for a while when all
this started going down, and I
just wanted them to focus on
basketball, kind of focus on
blocking out the noise, per se, and
just kind of enjoy what they’re at
the university to do: go to class,
be a student-athlete, play basketball.”
But even as Padgett and his
players have injected levity into
basketball activities, ACC Commissioner John Swofford delivered pointed remarks about the
state of the sport with regard to
those individuals the federal investigation has linked to corruption.
The investigation accuses
coaches at Auburn, Oklahoma
State, Arizona and Southern California of accepting bribes in exchange for offering to steer players to preferred financial advisers, business managers and
agents.
In addition, a high-ranking
executive at Adidas and two associates are accused of arranging
illicit payments for high school
standouts and their families to
secure athlete commitments to
schools sponsored by the footwear and apparel company.
“The charges filed by the federal government are truly disturbing to me, to our schools and all
those connected to college athletics that are dedicated to following the rules,” Swofford said.
“There’s still much to learn, but if
found to be true, the individuals
involved need to be held accountable. This is a serious situation
where college athletics shouldn’t
be.”
The ACC averted what would
have been another blow to its
basketball brand two weeks ago
when the NCAA ruled after a
three-year investigation it would
not punish the North Carolina
athletics department for “paper
courses” taken by thousands of
students, many of them athletes,
over nearly two decades.
The NCAA’s Committee on Infractions determined that because regular students also enrolled in lenient classes in the
school’s African and Afro-American studies department, investi-
gators could not prove those
courses constituted an unfair
benefit for North Carolina athletes.
The Tar Heels are the reigning
national champions after beating
Gonzaga, 71-65, in the NCAA
tournament final in Glendale,
Ariz.
To find a solution to potentially rampant corruption in the
sport, Swofford revealed the formation of an ACC task force that
will report its findings to an
NCAA commission headed by former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice. Former Virginia athletic director Craig Littlepage will
chair the ACC task force.
Littlepage had held his post at
Virginia since 2001 and remains
in an advisory role as newly hired
athletic director Carla Williams,
the former deputy AD at Georgia,
settles into her tenure. Williams
was introduced Monday at a
news conference in Charlottesville and becomes the first African American woman to be athletic director at a Power Five
school.
“Obviously there are systemic
issues that need to be addressed,
including in my mind one-anddone and more liberal agent
rules,” Swofford said. “But individual accountability cannot be
ignored. So much ultimately
comes down to individuals’ integrity and individuals’ commitment to playing by the rules, and
there is no lack of understanding
what the rules are.”

MARYLAND HIGH SCHOOL GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS
Marriotts Ridge captures its sixth consecutive 1A/2A title
BY
J OSHUA N EEDELMAN
Before Marriotts Ridge’s golf dynasty started, it seemed the Mustangs might never get over the
hump and win a state championship. Three straight years they entered the second day of the Maryland state tournament with the
lead, only to have it wither away
each time.
Then the Mustangs figured it
out — and haven’t looked back
since. Now Coach Mark Dubbs
doesn’t know how he’s going to
make room in the trophy case for
his team’s latest piece of hardware,
a state record sixth straight Maryland 1A/2A state championship.
Marriotts Ridge posted a two-day
team total of 625 strokes at the
University of Maryland Golf
Course in College Park.
“I’ll probably have to take out
the two second-place” trophies,
Dubbs said. “I’ll find a place. . . . It’s
a good problem to have.”
Whitman claimed the 3A/4A title with a total of 605.
Marriotts Ridge built an early
lead behind sophomore Faith
McIlvain (71-76) and senior David
Stephens (75-78), who won the
girls’ and boys’ 1A/2A championships, respectively.
Aside from senior Alex Pak (7877), Dubbs was unsure who would
be in his top four this season after
losing three seniors to graduation.
McIlvain, Stephens and freshman
Akash Marakath quickly asserted
themselves when practice began
in August.
McIlvain, competing in her first
state tournament, said she always
enjoys playing on the University of
Maryland’s course. It showed —
she made four birdies on the first
day and had to marshal her excitement over the second 18 holes
Wednesday.
“Trying my best to keep my
emotions under control,” McIlvain
said of the excitement from making the birdies. “I tried my best to
keep it on the down low.”
She didn’t need to hide her joy
for long. Afterward, the team celebrated at a local Buffalo Wild
Wings, where they all signed the
back of their trophy.
“I said, ‘If you ever come back to
the school in 30 years and want to
brag to your kids, you can ask the
custodian
to
open
the
case,’ ” Dubbs said.
The Vikings’ path to the Maryland 3A/4A title was less predictable. They hadn’t claimed the
state’s top prize since 2007. Whitman edged runner-up Churchill
(614).
“It’s been a magical season,”
Whitman Coach Karl O'Donoghue
said. “We’ve done incredible
things all year. This kind of tops it.”
The composition of Whitman’s
top four shifted dramatically in
early August when senior Jordan
Cornelius enrolled in her home-
town school after three years in
Florida. Cornelius quickly impressed O'Donoghue.
“It was a very pleasant surprise
when you get that handed to you,”
O'Donoghue said of Cornelius.
“Her stroke average for the regular
season was right around par.”
Cornelius shot a 75-76 at the
state championship, with Amanda
Levy recording a team-best 76-73.
Wootton (627), Sherwood (645),
South River (648) and Northern
(655) rounded out the finishers in
3A/4A.

HIGH SCHOOL CROSS-COUNTRY
Clark shows no hesitation in leading Falcons to another Anne Arundel crown
BY
DAN ROTH
When Garrison Clark joined the
Severna Park cross-country team
two years ago, he was, at best,
reluctant.
“To be honest, I didn’t really
want to,” Clark said with a sheepish grin. “My mom forced me to.”
On Wednesday at the Anne Arundel County Championships in
Pasadena, the junior willingly gave
every ounce of his energy on the
fast 5K course at Chesapeake.
“I came here to work for my
teammates and to just put it all out
on the line,” Clark said after winning the boys’ race in 15 minutes
24.3 seconds.
Clark said he was “doing it for
the other six,” referring to his six
teammates. His teammates, however, did plenty on their own, each
finishing in the top 10 as the Falcons claimed their sixth consecutive county title with just 18 points.
Broadneck (65) finished second
followed by South River (91).
Annapolis junior Anna Coffin
saw her slight lead in the girls’ race
disappear on the final downhill.
She tapped into a unique source of
motivation — keeping the county
title in her family for the fourth
straight year — to regain the lead
and pull away down the stretch to
win in 17:56.6.
“My sister won this race last
Centennial in Ellicott City, senior
Nick Deamer won the boys’ race in
15:41.14 to lead Howard to the
team
championship
with
64 points.
River Hill senior Jasmine Tiamfook won the girls’ title in 19:01 to
lead the Hawks to the girls’ team
title with 54 points.
SMAC
Calvert junior Justin Diehl
cruised to victory in 15:57.13 at the
Southern Maryland Athletic Conference meet to lead the Cavaliers
(37 points) to the boys’ team title at
Jefferson Patterson Park in
St. Leonard.
Leonardtown freshman Nelle
Ray won the girls’ race in 18:56.93,
while Northern (26) won the girls’
team title.
DAN ROTH FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
Annapolis junior Anna Coffin kept the county title in her family for a fourth straight year Wednesday.
year,” said Coffin, referencing her
older sister, Maria, now a freshman at Providence who won the
county title each of the past three
years. “I thought that would be
really cool if I won it this year.”
Broadneck senior Olivia Janke
made a move of her own with a
strong kick at the end, passing
Severna Park’s Kamryn Eveleth to
secure second place in 18:03.8 and
help the Bruins claim their third
straight girls’ title with 47 points,
edging runner-up Severna Park
(50) and South River (60).
“Her kick at the end to outkick
Kamryn was amazing to me,”
Broadneck Coach Brianna Bostic
said. “Our talk all this week was
one point makes a difference. Every point matters. Every person
you can pass can make a difference, and clearly it did today with
just three points separating us.”
Howard County
At the Howard County meet at
Montgomery County
Walter Johnson senior Abbey
Green won her third consecutive
Montgomery County title in 17:57.2
on Saturday on the 5K course at
Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg to
lead the Wildcats to their fourth
straight girls’ team title with
50 points.
On the boys’ side, Poolesville
senior Ryan Lockett outkicked the
competition to win in 15:32. Whitman won the team title with
125 points.

PETITION OF THE TAX CLAIM BUREAU OF HUNTINGDON COUNTY,
PENNSYLVANIA, UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE ACT OF JULY 7, 1947,
P. L. 1368, ARTICLE 6, SECTION 610 (72 P. S. SECTION 5860.610, ET.
SEQ. AS SUPPLEMENTED AND AMENDED) FOR A DECREE OF COURT
TO MAKE SALE OF THE PROPERTIES HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO FREE
AND CLEAR OF ALL CLAIMS, LIENS, MORTGAGES AND GROUND RENTS
AGAINST THE SAME
TO THE HONORABLE GEORGE N. ZANIC, JUDGE:
The Tax Claim Bureau of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, respectfully represents as follows:
1. The Tax Claim Bureau of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, Petitioner herein, was created and exists by virtue of a Resolution adopted
and approved by the Board of Commissioners of Huntingdon County,
Pennsylvania, wherein they elected to proceed to the collection of
delinquent taxes as provided for under and by virtue of the provisions
of the Act of July 7, 1947, P. L. 1368 (72 P. S. Section 5860.101, et. seq.,
as supplemented and amended), said Act being otherwise referred to
as the "Real Estate Tax Sale Law".
2. That the various taxing districts within the County of Huntingdon,
subject to the provisions of said Act, have made returns to the Tax
Claim Bureau under the provisions of said Act.
3. That the Board of County Commissioners of Huntingdon County
and the corporate authorities of each taxing district of Huntingdon
County have made returns to the Bureau of all properties against
which taxes were levied and unpaid in accordance with Section 306
of said Act.
4. That thereafter the Bureau made up claims for each property
returned containing the unpaid taxes against each property as set
forth in the various returns and entered such claims in the Tax Claims
Dockets in accordance with Section 307 of the Act.
5. That notice of the filing of the returns and the entry of said claims
was duly given to each property owner whose taxes were delinquent
by United States Certified Mail, return receipt requested, addressed
to the owner personally at their last known post office address
and where no post office address was known or where the notice
addressed to the owner was not delivered to said owner by the
Postal authorities, notice of such claim was posted on the property
itself. In the case of a mobile home or house trailer, a copy of said
notice was forwarded to the encumbrance holders of record, all of
said notifications being given as required by Section 308 of the Act of
Assembly aforesaid.
6. That thereafter, as required by Section 309 of the aforesaid Act, all
claims for taxes returned were made up as claims and entered in the
Tax Claim Dockets.
7. That all claims entered in the various dockets have become
absolute and have been duly noted by the Director of the Bureau in
accordance with Section 311 of the Act.
8. That, in accordance with the provisions of Section 601 of the Act,
the delinquent property taxes identified herein were returned to the
Tax Claim Bureau of the County of Huntingdon and the properties
were duly scheduled for sale and the said properties did not receive
a bid equal to or higher than the upset price. Consequently, sales
were not made; all is specifically and particularly set forth in the
consolidated returns of the Tax Claim Bureau as filed in the Court
of Common Pleas of Huntingdon County which proceedings, by
reference thereto, are incorporated herein.
9. The following properties were offered for public sale on September
28, 2015 and failed to receive a bidding price equal to or higher than
the upset price. The properties are more fully described as follows:

HOW TO
Use an iron or syringe to repair veneer that has bubbled up
BY
J EANNE H UBER
Q: We have a table covered with
veneer. In the section where the
pieces come to a point at the
center, the veneer has bubbled
up. I contacted the manufacturer
but received no help. The table is
about 35 years old, and I would be
willing to have it refinished if
necessary. The bubbled area has
not been increasing. Is there any
solution?
Annandale
A: If you look online, you will find

repair on your own, see whether
the iron trick works. If you need
to go the syringe route and
cannot find syringes at your local
hardware store, order from a
company such as Lee Valley,
which sells a five-syringe set for
$13.50. Use wood glue, such as
Titebond II.
Q: I have a copper cake pan with
a handle that has detached. Is
there a way to fix this?

A: You have two options.
One solution would be to
solder the flange of the handle

numerous postings and YouTube
videos that say the solution is to
cut a slit in the veneer with a
sharp utility knife, inject glue via
a syringe needle, cover the area
with wax paper, and weight it
down with a stack of heavy books
or other weights.
That is indeed the best
approach when the veneer was
attached with modern glue, said
Yasser Haridi, owner of Antiques
& Furniture Restoration (703437-7446; refinishing.org), a shop
in Sterling that has done work for
the Library of Congress and
many embassies in Washington.
But on tables where traditional
hide glue was used, he takes an
easier approach: He uses an iron
and a damp cloth to gently steam
the wood. The pressure flattens
the bubble, and the heat and
moisture reactivate the glue. So
the veneer stays pinned down
once the area cools.
With either method, it’s likely
that the tabletop will also need to
be refinished. That would bring
the total cost to $475 or more,
depending on the size of the table,
Haridi said. If you wanted the legs
refinished, that could add
substantially to the cost, especially
if they have intricate details.
If you decide to attempt the
back to where it used to be. If
you’re not skilled in soldering,
the Brass & Copper Shop in
Frederick, Md. (301-663-4240;
brassandcoppershop.com), will
do this for you. The charge would
be about $35 to $45, store owner
Don Reedy said in an email.
Or you could probably reattach
the handle using an epoxy
designed for use with metal. One
product is QuikSteel CopperReinforced Epoxy Putty ($10.35
at amazon.com). The standard
QuikSteel Steel-Reinforced
Epoxy Putty ($5.99 at
truevalue.com) would work
equally well but would cure to a
charcoal color rather than
copper, said Clark Elmore, tech
support manager for the
Technical Chemical Co., which
owns the QuikSteel brand.
Epoxy putty, which is also
available from other brands,
comes in a package that extrudes
the basic epoxy and the required
hardener in the proper
proportions. To prepare the
surfaces, polish them with steel
wool or extra-fine sandpaper so
that you see bright metal. Then
open the package. “Tear off a
chunk and mix it aggressively,”
Elmore said. To do this, knead the
material with your fingers while
wearing rubber or vinyl gloves.
Apply it and prop up or fasten the
pieces so they stay in place while
the epoxy cures. If needed,
dampen the gloves with tap water
to keep the epoxy from sticking to
them as you press it in place. The
QuikSteel epoxies harden within
five minutes and fully cure within
an hour.

You’ll rest easy knowing your guests can, too
BY
L INDSEY M . R OBERTS
With the holidays on the horizon, it’s time to get guest-ready. That means testing out that old air mattress — and maybe finding a new
one. ¶ Although you might wish that you had a real bed set up for guests, David K. Randall, author of the book “Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep,” says studies show that any bed that’s not our primary bed will impair our sleep. “A harder mattress or a pillow that’s either too fluffy or not fluffy enough can be just enough of a difference that the body and brain can’t fully relax
and go into deep sleep,” he explains. That said, there’s got to be a way to provide guests with a good night’s sleep — even without a
cushy guest suite. ¶ We asked experts to pick the best air mattresses and to share tips on how to make the best inflatable beds even better. No matter the situation, there’s good news: “Entertaining someone in your home is a labor of love,” says Bailey McCarthy, founder
of the Houston-based bedding line Biscuit Home, “and when executed correctly, can be one of the most selfless ways to give to others.”
localliving@washpost.com
SOUNDASLEEP
Biscuit Home, a Houston bedding retailer, has a team
of people who obsess over what makes a comfortable
bed. Production assistant Molly McConn raves about
the SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress
($119.95 for queen, amazon.com). She says it has
hosted countless guests over several years. To make
this and any other air mattress comfy, McCarthy, who
was featured as a “Next Wave” designer by House
Beautiful, suggests adding a mattress cover, plus a
fluffy, ironed duvet and Euro shams “to emit the realbed feel that many hosts hope to provide.”
AEROBED
“I stand by the double-height pillow-top
AeroBed,” says D.C. interior designer
Annie Elliott ($249.99 for queen,
bedbathandbeyond.com). “It’s easier for adult
guests to get in and out of.” No matter which air
mattress you choose, though, Elliott
recommends keeping a roll of duct tape on hand
— “just in case!”
INSTA-BED
California-based Frank Apodaca, senior editor for the
Sleep Judge website, has tested 15 to 20 of the more
popular air mattresses and says that the Insta-bed
brand ranks among the best. Their beds have “a very
quiet secondary pump that will kick in if the air
mattress starts to deflate from its set point
throughout the night,” he says. For house guests,
he’d use the EZ Bed Queen with NeverFlat Pump
($399.95, instabed.com).

Joe Auer, founder of mattress-review site Mattress
Clarity, says that “air mattresses aren’t known for
being comfortable, but a few mattresses are designed
to make them as comfortable as possible.” He likes
some of the new mattresses that have a memory foam
layer, naming the Memory Aire 18-inch air bed ($169
for queen, walmart.com). It is “something I’ve slept on
with good success,” he says.
When Cameron Martindell, an avid camper and test director and editor for
the Gear Institute, wants to make more room for visitors, he puts up tents
in his back yard. “We have enough yard and tents and other sleeping pads
to put people out in a little glamping setup in the yard,” he says. But for
colder weather, the Colorado-based freelance adventure writer turns to
the Double High Raised Twin Air Mattress by Embark ($35.99 for twin,
$45.99 for queen, target.com) for indoor guests. He makes sure to layer a
blanket between the mattress and bedding for added warmth.

Q: What advice do you have for
someone who has never designed
a table setting before?
A: No one comes out of the womb
ready to host a dinner party (not
even Martha Stewart). We all
have to start somewhere. Look
around your home and your
closet for inspiration. Pick colors
and textures that already play a
role in your life. For example, if
you lean toward preppy attire, go
with a navy-and-white nautical
theme. If you’re more of a black
moto jacket and Converse kind of
girl, go with dark hues and
unexpected fabrics, such as
leather runners and jewel-toned
water glasses.
Q: How do you get inspired to
design a tablescape?
A: I like to channel the mood of
the meal. I ask myself what kind
of person will be using the
setting, who will be eating the
meal and what feeling I want to
convey. If it’s a brunch, soft tones
such as dove gray and blush
provide an elegant foundation. If
it’s a bachelorette party, lots of
pinks and greens make the meal
pop. For something more
sophisticated, classic black-andwhite prints and dishware are
always on point. No matter what,
I always start with the runner or
tablecloth first. It’s the biggest
piece of your tablescape, so
everything else plays off that.
list when perhaps not everyone
knows one another? What ice
breaker games do you
recommend?
A: Ice breakers are fantastic
whether your guests know one
another or not. It prevents
people from being cliquey or
talking only to the person sitting
next to them. My favorite ice
breaker is “Two Truths, One Lie,”
where each guest lists two things
about themselves that are true
and one thing that isn’t, and then
the rest of the guests guess which
one is the lie. This can be as
innocent or playful as you want it
to be, depending on the type of
party and crowd.
Q: How do you prepare for a
dinner party? Do I need to set
aside a lot of time before my
guests arrive?
A: The more time you set aside to
prepare, the better you’ll feel
going into the dinner party. Set
the table the night before, and do
as much food prep as possible
before people arrive. And don’t
be afraid to ask for help in the
kitchen once your guests are
there — most people love to
contribute to the evening.
Q: I always protest but end up
hosting holiday dinners at the
last minute. How do you
recommend putting together a
tablescape if there’s no time to
prepare?
A: Holidays are usually
overwhelming for everyone, so
don’t put too much pressure on
yourself by striving for
perfection. For last-minute table
setting, pick one element to focus

Q: I am tired of ironing
tablecloths for the holidays. Can
you suggest some attractive and
affordable alternatives, please?
A: Ironing seems to be a neverending task around the holidays.
You can alleviate some of this by
swapping out tablecloths with
metallic, netted place mats.
There are several options out
there, and the best part is that
you can quickly rinse them off
after a meal rather than
laundering.

on. Pick up pomegranates or
apples to place at each setting
with each guest’s name written
directly on them to serve as place
cards. Or buy a bunch of greens
and place them down the center
of the table. Remember, it’s the
thought that counts, so skip the
stress and have a great time with
the people you love.
Q: I’m a candle beginner. How
can I put candles on the table in a
way that looks professional?
A: The best way to use candles on
your dining table is to play with
height. Three levels of candle
holders or candles (12-inch
tapers, 10-inch tapers and tea
lights) bring visual stimulation
and energy to your table from the
flickering light. It’s hard to go
wrong, so just make sure you
have at least two on your table
and not so many that you’re
creating a fire hazard.
Q: Can you help me identify what
Q: What is your favorite
unexpected color scheme for a
holiday tablesetting?
A: Skip the primary colors that
are often associated with the
holidays and go with deep jewel
tones instead. For example,
aubergine and emerald rather
than red and green. Another
option is to go with an all-white
tablescape and tons of white
taper candles (this provides a
great contrast to the otherwise
stark color).
Q: If I don’t have enough forks,
knives or spoons per person at a
dinner party, is it frowned upon
to ask guests to keep them
throughout the courses for the
evening?
A: Definitely not. I always say
that the important part of a
dinner party is that your guests
feel loved, not that it’s perfectly
executed. Most people don’t
have 30 forks for a three-course,
10-person dinner party and won’t
think twice about holding on to
their flatware throughout the
meal.
Q: I enjoy looking at beautifully
set tables in magazines, but they
seem impractical for real life. The
center space is full of flowers and
decorations, so there’s no room
for serving dishes. What’s the
solution for those of us who don’t
have footmen to hold the food?
A: When I started hosting dinner
parties, I often made the mistake
of overfilling the table, which
resulted in guests taking large
floral arrangements off the table
and putting them on the floor.
My advice is to do a trial run by
placing everything necessary for
your meal on the table to
determine what space (if any) is
left. You don’t need flowers to
make a beautiful tablescape. Two
tall taper candles or a few
scattered votives can be perfect
on their own.
Q: Do you have any advice for
setting a table made from
reclaimed wood? It’s not a
smooth surface, so tablecloths
don’t work well. Place mats tend
to overlap with table runners, so
together they look odd. Any
unique solutions for mostly
casual entertaining that takes
place around a rough-hewed
surface?
A: I had a table exactly like this
and was constantly fighting the
urge to use table linens. In this
case, the table is the star of your
tablescape. Skip the runner and

Q: We are thinking of hosting
this year’s family Thanksgiving
dinner, for 20 to 25 people, in an
old bank barn in southeastern
Pennsylvania. Any ideas for
decorating?
A: This is a dreamy idea. I’m
jealous! If you have access to
chandeliers, that would be a
gorgeous way to glam up the
space quickly. Rent them from an
events company, or find
mismatched chandeliers from
thrift stores. If chandeliers aren’t
your thing, market lights will
also do the trick and make the
space feel immediately more
intimate for your holiday.

DA
silverware I actually need on the
table? I know this varies by
occasion and formality, but I see
all these amazing tables on
Pinterest with more silverware
than my guests will need or use.
Do I put it all out for formality’s
sake, or do you have a “barebones” philosophy I could
follow?
A: Do not feel compelled to put
any dishware, flatware or
glassware on the table that you
won’t use. I say this for two
reasons: First, once guests are
seated, they take up more space
than you would imagine looking
at an empty table before your
party. You want your guests to
feel comfortable, not crowded.
Second, spending hours doing
dishes that you’re not sure
anyone actually used will
probably prevent you from
hosting in the future — and
nobody wants that. The rule of
thumb is to put out only what
people need.

Q: How do you feel about plain
white dinner plates? Seems as if
they are what everyone is using
instead of the fancy china in their
cupboards.
A: White dinner plates are a
wonderful neutral. I highly
recommend them as a
foundation for your table. White
allows you to play with your
textiles — runners and napkins
— so that you can create
whatever mood you desire for
your dinner party, holiday or lazy
Sunday brunch.
Q: Any ideas for how to get
kiddos involved in fancy
tablescapes? I’d love some
creative ways to include my
preschooler in festive meal prep.
She loves making things look
“fancy.”
A: Children love chalk, and it’s an
easy element to incorporate into
your tablescape. Chalkboard
stickers that adhere to glassware
in lieu of place cards, as well as
chalkboard runners, are a fun
way for your toddler to safely
express her creativity.
F FR
Q: What’s the best way to kick
someone out of your party?
A: This is an excellent question.
If it’s a weekend, I typically plan
for everyone to have an afterdinner destination (karaoke is
always a favorite). If it’s a
weeknight, or if your crowd isn’t
up for a post-party, start doing
the dishes. Either you’ll get help
cleaning up, or people will take
the hint that the evening is over.

House offers one

of Washington.

GARDENING
Arlington
National
Cemetery to Memorial Bridge to
the Lincoln Memorial and on to
the Mall. The architectural
geometry is leavened by the
snaking Potomac River.
But I have huffed and puffed
my way up to this high ground to
see something more ancient and,
in its own way, defining of the
nation’s history. Joan Maloof is
waiting to show me the other
side of the mansion, a pocket of
forest known as the Arlington
Woods. Only 12 acres remain of
what was once a sylvan 600
acres, part of the 1,100-acre
estate owned by G.W.P. Custis,
the adopted grandson of George
Washington (and father-in-law
of Robert E. Lee).
Entering the woodland is
tricky; there are no easy trails,
and we have to leap across a
drainage swale. But once we are
in the heart of this forested dell,
the sounds of the riding mowers
and the tour trams and even the
passenger jets are muted. They
are replaced with shrieks of blue
jays and the white-noise rustle of
the wind through the leaves.
Maloof, who is 61 and trim, with
piercing slate-blue eyes, seems to
both relax and come alive in this
place. She blithely clambers onto
a huge fallen trunk and uses it as
a pixie perch to look up to the
forest’s light-filtering canopy.
As an ecologist and founder of
a group called the Old-Growth
Forest Network, Maloof is a pro
at reading this woodland. The
canopy is high — the trees reach
to 100 feet or more — but this
place might be a mere century
old. One clue that it is far older
is the proximity of enormous
trees of different species. We find
a white oak close to an American
basswood, and then a tulip
poplar. She tries to gauge its
trunk size by wrapping her arms
around maybe a third of its
circumference. Maloof is,
unabashedly, a tree-hugger.
There are other signals of the
virgin forest: She points out the
way a thick limb has changed
direction to form a looping arch
high in the sky. The bough is as
thick as the trunk of an old tree.
It changed direction as a result
of some abrupt shift in light
patterns, probably when a
neighboring tree fell down.
“There’s a wonderful term for

Arlington House. Old trees can take as long to decay as they did to grow, she said, providing a rich habitat for creatures large and small.
this,” she says. “Sinuosity.”
The most obvious sign that
this woodland has been left
unmolested is that there are
several old trees now fallen,
forming great horizontal
columns, as if Samson had
passed this way.
She leads me to a fallen white
oak more than three feet in
diameter. “It can take one of
these trees as long to decay as it
took to grow,” she says. Before it
returns to the soil, the dead oak
is anything but lifeless; it
provides a home to countless
generations of insects, plants,
amphibians, birds, reptiles, wee
mammals, fungi and microbes.
Maloof is the author, with
nature photographer Robert
Llewellyn, of a new book about
the Eastern deciduous forest,
“The Living Forest,” which
marries her lyrical text with his
images. Llewellyn is a master of
revealing the intricacies of the
small-scale elements of such big
creatures, things such as the
winged fruit of the maple or the
male catkins of the red oak,
spilling over their twigs like
waterfalls.
The book comes on the heels
of another of Maloof ’s, “Nature’s
Temples,” which more squarely
looks at the precarious state of
virgin forest, which once covered
much of what is now the eastern
half of the United States and the
Pacific Northwest. East of the

— Adrian Higgins
Mississippi, about 1 percent
survives in ever smaller and
more isolated pockets as
woodland that has not been
cleared for agriculture and
settlement, or simply harvested
for its wood.
Most of the established
woodland we see today is second
growth, originating a century or
more ago. The untouched forest,
she says, is much richer, not just
in ancient trees but in the
biodiversity it supports. Surveys
have found almost 500
salamanders per acre in the oldgrowth forest, compared with
fewer than 100 in younger
forests. Some species of insects,
lichens and fungi are found only
in old-growth forests.
Maloof says that if she had
settled in a thick and seemingly
eternal forest, “I would
definitely have built my log
cabin and I would have cleared
space for food, but we went
wrong with industrial forestry
way back in the 1800s.”
Timber fueled the growth of
the cities and became in itself
big business. We are all
complicit. If you live in a stick
house, the lumber probably
came from softwood plantations
that replaced old-growth forests.
To me, the old-growth forest is
as much an idea as a place. It
exists not for our utility or even
our pleasure, but as an
ecosystem that would carry on if
humans went away (and
certainly would be less
threatened if humans went
away). This idea of forest for its
own sake takes a conscious shift
in our thinking, away from the
belief that the world can enjoy
reality only if we can experience
it.
Back in the Arlington Woods,
I can’t help thinking of the trees
as being in some kind of
communion. As we come to
understand that trees are
connected by vast, slow-growing
networks of fungal strands
between their roots, the
realization brings a keener sense
of the trees as a community. If
they do communicate with one
another, chemically at least, it is
tempting to anthropomorphize
these stately survivors and to
share their pain when one
lifelong companion is toppled or
felled.
Even publicly owned
woodland is under constant
threat, from highway building
and the like. Maloof says there
are 24 counties in Virginia
where there’s “not a single
protected, open-to-the-public
forest.”
She lives in Berlin on
Maryland’s Eastern Shore and
says she created the Old-Growth
Forest Network for the simple
reason that the trees “have no
voices. They can’t write, they
can’t speak, vote, write checks.
They are mute, they just sit there
and take whatever happens. It’s
up to the humans to take care of
them.”
She spent time in Maryland
forests in her 30s searching for
rare native plants. Later, as a
doctoral candidate and teacher,
she became more immersed in
the woodland and its sense of
fragility.
In time, she came to see that
the forest does speak to those
who listen. “It’s more than just
the science and the beauty,” she
says. “There is something
mysterious and mystical about
it.”

Bite-size wisdom for your trick-or-treaters
BY
C HRISTY B RISSETTE
Halloween has always been my
favorite holiday. As a child, I
looked forward all year to dressing up and going trick-ortreating. I still love putting on
costumes and carving pumpkins.
But as much as I love the
holiday, it also has its share of
detractors. There is plenty of debate about whether parents
should limit their kids’ access to
Halloween activities and candy,
in the name of fending off a
lifetime of sugar cravings, or let
them eat their fill. With childhood obesity on the rise and many
parents eager to limit added sugars in their children’s diet, which
approach is best for helping kids
learn healthy eating habits?
Parenting approaches
to candy management
I spoke to dozens of parents
about how they handle Halloween
candy, many of them fellow dietitians. At one end of the spectrum
of control are parents who avoid
taking their kids trick-or-treating
and take them swimming or bowling instead. They say their kids
haven’t complained about missing out on the festivities. And
there are the parents who subscribe to the “switch witch” or
“candy fairy” approach. They take
their kids trick-or-treating and
may let them have a couple of
pieces of candy that evening. But
once the kids are in bed, the
parents switch out the candy stash
for a toy. Blaming the candy’s
disappearance on a witch or fairy
helps displace any anger the kids
might feel toward their parents.
Penn State research shows,
however, that girls who have
treats on a regular basis eat less of
these foods when they are offered
them and tend to be slimmer.
Another study from the Netherlands compared the eating behaviors of children who were told
they couldn’t have sweets,
couldn’t have fruit or were permitted to eat what they wanted.
The restricted groups wanted
more of the foods they weren’t
allowed to have and ate more
overall. This suggests that a deprivation mentality backfires
when it comes to teaching selfregulation and weight management.
At the other extreme are parents who let their kids eat as
much candy as they want. The
theory behind this is that kids
might overdo it the first couple of
days but then tire of the treats
and eventually forget about them.
Some parents say this approach
helps kids learn to self-regulate.
According to research, though,
letting kids indulge in as many
treats as they want is linked to
their being less in tune with the
signals their body sends them
when they are full. Kids of
parents with an indulgent
feeding style also have more trouble regulating themselves around
food and tend to weigh more than
other children. So it seems that
allowing kids to eat all the candy
they want teaches them to ignore
their satiety cues, setting them up
to be overweight adults.
As a dietitian, I tell parents to
approach Halloween as a learning opportunity. Sweets and other
treats are part of life, and sheltering kids from less healthy foods
doesn’t teach them how to manage them and regulate their eating as adults. Here are my suggestions on how to let your children
enjoy the treats of Halloween
without going overboard.
Have candy after meals
and with snacks
According to dietitian and
family therapist Ellyn Satter, author of “Child of Mine: Feeding
With Love and Good Sense,” it’s
fine to let kids have a few pieces of
candy a day, either as dessert after
a meal or as a sit-down snack. You
can include a piece of candy in
their lunch if they want.
This encourages mindful eat-
ing rather than distracted eating
in front of the TV or on the run.
Eating small amounts of treats
should help kids learn to savor
them and enjoy them more so
they’re satisfied. Having these
treats after a meal or snack means
there will be less room for candy,
and the protein and fat will help
slow down the sugar rush. If they
are asking for snacks at bedtime,
offer a healthy option that they
can follow with a small piece of
candy (though if sugar makes
them hyper, bedtime might not be
the best time for treats).
Let your kids know that if
they’re able to stick to these rules,
they can have control over their
candy stash. If they can’t, the
parent should take charge. Make
sure you communicate the plan
before trick-or-treating so everyone knows what to expect.
Keep candy in a tall
kitchen cupboard
Out of sight, out of mind. This
holds true for kids and adults
when it comes to food. Don’t let
kids keep candy or other food in
their rooms. Food stays in the
kitchen, and the less healthy options should be hidden in a cup-
A little moderation on Halloween
can help instill healthy eating habits for life
board, not out on the counter for
all to see (and grab mindlessly).
Let them pick their favorites
and ‘make it worth it’
Have your kids pick out the
candy they love and give away the
rest. Learning to choose treats
you really enjoy is an important
part of healthy eating. You want
your kids to savor and enjoy the
treats they love rather than go for
volume and not really take pleasure in what they’re eating.
Focus on healthy
living, not weight
When you talk about food with
your kids, focus on making
healthy choices rather than controlling weight. Research suggests that commenting on children’s weight can increase the
likelihood of unhealthy dieting as
well as binge eating and other
eating disorders.
Use Halloween as a growth
opportunity for the family
Think about how you want
your family to approach food and
treats, and consider the example
you’re setting with your eating
habits. Do your kids see you making your way to the candy bowl
every night? Practice the same
balanced food habits you want
your kids to have as adults. I’m
willing to bet you’ll all be healthier and happier as a result.

ON PARENTING
Boy’s shyness around strangers is hardly strange
BY
M EGHAN L EAHY
Q: My 6-year-old seems to be a pretty happy little guy, but
I’m worried about his self-esteem. When asked questions
about himself or his opinion, he is unable to think of an
answer. (Example: A neighbor recently asked, “Do you
like first grade?” and he looked at me for an answer and
was unable to reply.) His teacher tells me he does this in
class, too, for simple questions such as what his favorite
color or food is. He’s very smart but seems terrified of
giving the “wrong” answer. I’ve signed him up for
activities to engage him and raise his confidence (soccer,
art class, running), but he still seems meek, hanging back
in crowds and preferring to be last in line. I understand
that part of this may be his personality — he’s clearly not
aggressive or competitive. But I also want him to be able
to assert himself and not be pushed around, and I want
him to be confident. How can I help him find his voice?
He’s a happy kid and chatty with his family and friends.
But in unfamiliar settings and large groups, he clams up.
Any ideas?
A: This kind of shyness is
common in children, and it is
not a disorder or even a problem.
I don’t know anything about
your family. I don’t know
whether you are experiencing a
trauma or transition, and I don’t
know about the disposition of
you and your partner. In lieu of
this information, I am going to
explain the theory behind why
children are shy in front of
adults and strangers and see
whether we can understand your
son a little more.
In developmental theory,
there is a reason that children
become shy around strangers
(usually when the baby is
between 7 and 9 months old).
Babies can attach to almost
anyone who cares for them.
Why? Their primary needs are
that they are held, fed, clothed,
diapered, cleaned, spoken to and
picked up when they cry.
Because of the fragility of
humans (women dying during
childbirth is still not
uncommon), babies must be able
to attach to any caregiver. But as
babies grow and their caregiver
stays the same, they become
more comfortable with that
person and form a deeper and
deeper attachment.
Because the healthy
development of humans and
some other mammals depends
on this emotional dependence
and vulnerability, it would stand
to reason that a young child has
few deep attachments. Your son
cannot take cues from every
adult in his life. He learned to
speak from listening and
mimicking you. He learned to
get dressed and eat from
watching and mimicking you.
When he began to have ideas
and opinions of his own, he
shared what was in his heart
with you. Why? Because he is
emotionally and physically safe
with you. And you say yourself
that your son is chatty and
happy around those with whom
he feels safest. Great! That’s
what you want. Even introverts
are free and animated around
those with whom they are most
connected. So we have one
simple answer as to why your
son clams up around people he
doesn’t know well: He doesn’t
feel safe with them.
But there is also something
else that I am reading in your
letter: a misunderstanding of
what it means to have selfesteem and confidence. I think
you know deep down that you
cannot force your son to have
confidence when you write, “I
understand that part of this may
be his personality.” There was
never a point in your life when
you were an empty vessel,
waiting for someone to pour in
self-esteem. Being confident and
courageous means having a
healthy and reasonable fear and
going after what you desire
anyway. True confidence requires
that we talk to ourselves a bit.
“This is scary, but I can do it.”
ISTOCK
Confidence requires maturity,
and no one has been bullied into
maturity. So my fancy advice?
Lay off. He is 6. He doesn’t need
constant activities, and they
aren’t working. He is still timid
and hanging back. Will there be
a time when he enjoys being
part of such groups? Maybe.
Until then, don’t see his
participation as a fix for a boy
with whom there is nothing
wrong.
In the meantime, accept him
completely for who he is. Play
with him and say: “Jeez, it makes
me nervous when people ask me
questions right on the spot.
What about you? Let’s play a
game where we answer the
questions with total silliness!”
And then he can ask you your
favorite food, and you can blurt
out, “Boogers!” And then ask
him, and he’ll blurt out
something funny. Keep roleplaying and giggling until you
see a little spark in him. The
spark will feel simultaneously
like relaxation and excitement.
Then you can work on real
answers.
Above all, accept him for who
he is. We don’t need any more
“strong” men marching around.
We need sensitive, bright and
caring men who are brave
enough to take the last spot in
line. Don’t be afraid of that.

PARENTING Q&A
There isn’t one right way to raise a child. There’s just learning.
Parenting coach and columnist Meghan Leahy answered
questions recently in an online
chat with On Parenting editor
Amy Joyce. Here is an edited
excerpt.
A: When our children are teased
or called out for their
differences, it hurts. A lot.
Children desperately want to be
part of the crowd, so they take
these hurt feelings to us. And all
that frustration and pain moves
out of their minds and hearts as
tears. We cry when we cannot
change something, and then we
feel better.
Keep welcoming those tears
and tell the stories of how you
were teased, how it made you
feel and how you found courage.
Meanwhile, if it gets chronic,
give the teachers a heads-up —
they will want to know.
Q: My husband and I have
ISTOCK
8. Forget everything I have
written here, eat some yummy
food, watch movies, take long
walks and enjoy life.
Q: I recently got a medical
diagnosis, and I have only a few
years left. My kids are 14 and 17.
At the moment, they know that I
have this disease and that I’m
being treated for it. They have
not asked my husband or me
about anything long-term, so we
haven’t had to address it. Do you
have any advice for us?
A: I am so sorry. My prayer, my
wish and my hope is that, in
the next couple of years,
something will change to allow
you to live.
But we are living today and
right now with this news, so
first get some support. Find
someone (a therapist, a grief
specialist, a religious person, a
really wise friend) and talk out
your feelings. I am not saying
that you will get rid of these
feelings, but you can sort out
some of the fear, anger and
disappointment on your own
and not lay it on the shoulders
of the children.
That being said, this is going
to be the new reality of your
lives, and you will live with it.
Some days will be hard, and
some will be joyous. Some days
will be grief-stricken, and some
will be filled with overwhelming
gratitude.
The family mantra has to be
something like “All feelings are
welcome, and life moves on.”
Proms, graduations, romances,
sports, all of it. When you all
need to cry, cry. And laugh, plan
fun things to do and know that
your parenting work is largely
done (crazy, but it is). Keep
reassuring your children that
love never dies and that you are
their mom forever, and that
everything that is in them is
everything they need.
None of this will satisfy. Keep
your own emotions moving, find
support and just be yourself.
Life has a way of bringing into
focus the most important
things.
Keep the routine, rest, love,
cuddle the kids and stay honest
with them without burdening
them. Keep fighting and keep
living.
Q: My daughter is 14 and has
grown very large breasts. She
has begun getting teased by her
friends and complaining about
her back being sore, and my
wallet is almost empty from
buying her expensive bras. Any
advice for a panicking single
father?
A: There are decisions that can
be made when she’s older
(insurance possibly covering a
reduction to alleviate the back
issues, which is what my friend
did at 17), but for now, you have
to be a container for her stress,
anger and sadness. Keep
listening to her complain, hurt
and cry. This is hard, because
good parents who care want to
make things better for their
kids. We want to ease their
burdens. But there is nothing
you can do here but help your
daughter adapt to this physical
issue.
Keep finding the good bras
(there are great shops that
specialize in this). Find her an
aunt or another woman who
gets this. Keep track of the
teasing and other bullying and
reassure her that it won’t be like
this forever.
Q: My 7-year-old son is very
thin. This has never bothered
him, but kids at school are
starting to make comments to
him about it. This hits a nerve
with me because I was teased
for the same thing. He was close
to tears telling me what
happened and said he “wanted
to be like everyone else.” Besides
having positive-body-image
talks with him, I’m looking for
advice on what to tell him about
how to respond to such
comments.
Q: I had a baby 10 days ago, and
big sis (20 months) is handling
it well, for the most part. She is
the sweetest person I know but
has started throwing tantrums if
we stop her from doing
something she wants to do.
When she is upset, anything I do
makes her more upset. If I touch
her, she will flail around wildly.
If I talk to her, she gets more
upset. If I walk away, it doesn’t
help. What am I supposed to do?
I realize her emotions are bigger
than she can understand, and
she has had a huge upheaval in
her life. She is definitely being
more clingy, too, and I am
having some postpartum
physical health problems that
are preventing me from picking
her up as much as she wants
(which is all the time). What can
I do for my girl?
A: Get a postpartum doula, stat
(if you don’t have a mom or aunt
or grandma or someone taking
care of you).
And yes, these explosions are
a result of her being almost 2
and your attention being
elsewhere. It’s completely
normal. You have smartly
named what doesn’t work, so
pop that baby somewhere safe
and just be nearby when your
older child has tantrums. Life is
hard for a 20-month-old, and
you are in the weeds. Remember
that you can’t stop the tantrums
and that they serve a
developmental purpose.
I am not going to give you any
reading or homework because
you have a 10-day-old. But sleep,
find help, sit on the floor with
the 20-month-old and play, hang
on for dear life when she has
tantrums, and keep the baby
safe. Repeat daily.

the washington post . thursday, october 26 , 2017
decided to start trying to have a
baby. It’s our first, and I want to
do things right. But there is so
much competing information
about what you should do prepregnancy and through
pregnancy. I’d like to limit my
sources of information to my
doctor and a couple of reputable
books. I’m leaning toward the
Mayo Clinic pregnancy book
and “What to Expect When
You’re Expecting.” Are these
good choices? Is there another
good one I’m missing?
A: 1. You will not do things
“right.” There is no right and no
wrong. (Besides, of course,
beating, shaming and neglecting
your children). You will parent,
learn about yourself and your
children, and then you will die.
That’s the gig. So commit to
staying open to learning.
2. Focus on yourself and your
relationship. The more mentally
healthy you are, the better
parent you will be. You can find
scads of research on this, but it’s
common sense. And the
stronger your relationship with
your spouse, the better parent
you will be. If you aren’t
stressed all the time about your
union, you can relax and feel
safe in it. So discuss your own
childhoods, discipline, religion
(this is a big one), schooling, etc.
You will be surprised what you
learn.
3. Get some decent
development books and, most
important, find a parent crew
you can join. These may not be
your forever friends, but it can
save your life to be around other
parents in the same tired — and
joyous — boat.
4. Educate yourself and then
toss out your expectations
about breast-feeding, birth
plans, sleep schedules and
nearly everything else about
babies. You have to trust your
intuition, and that can be hard if
you are overly wedded to a
theory or method.
5. Don’t ask for opinions
(unless you really trust the
person). People will give you
their opinions, but smile and
dismiss. This is your baby and
your journey.
6. Stay off blogs and websites
that ramp up your anxiety.
7. Find a nearby pediatrician
who makes you feel relaxed and
safe.
