A top executive from Donald
Trump’s real estate company
emailed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s personal spokesman
during the U.S. presidential campaign last year to ask for help
advancing a stalled Trump Tower
development project in Moscow,
according to documents submitted to Congress on Monday.
The request came in a mid-January 2016 email from Michael Cohen,
one of Trump’s closest business advisers, who asked longtime Putin
lieutenant Dmitry Peskov for assistance in reviving a deal that Cohen
suggested was languishing.
“Over the past few months I have
been working with a company
based in Russia regarding the development of a Trump Tower-Moscow
project in Moscow City,” Cohen
wrote to Peskov, according to a person familiar with the email. “Without getting into lengthy specifics,
the communication between our
two sides has stalled.
“As this project is too important, I am hereby requesting your
assistance. I respectfully request
someone, preferably you, contact

Launch, condemned by
Tokyo, poses further
challenge to Trump
BY
A NNA F IFIELD
tokyo — North Korea launched a
ballistic missile Tuesday morning
that flew over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, the most
brazen provocation of Kim Jong
Un’s five-year-long rule and one
that elicited strong condemnation
from U.S. allies Japan and South
Korea.
The launch poses a further challenge, in particular, to President
Trump, who has made North Korea a favorite rhetorical target. Trump said earlier this month
that he would make Kim “truly
regret” harming the United States
or its allies.
In Japan, the prime minister
was visibly agitated by North Korea’s actions. “A missile launch
across Japan is an outrageous act
that poses an unprecedented,
grave and serious threat, and significantly undermines the peace
and security of the region,” Shinzo
Abe said after an emergency national security council meeting.

Even as government officials
vowed a powerful, forward-leaning
response to the disaster that Hurricane Harvey has left in Texas, the
situation on the ground remained
chaotic and desperate on Monday,
with millions of soaked residents
resorting to their own resources
and wits to survive.
Houston is notoriously floodprone, but no one in the government had planned for a disaster
quite like this. They had planned
for calamities with elements of
what has unfolded in the city and
surrounding communities, but
they didn’t war-game the inundation of thousands of square miles,
including a huge, sprawling metropolis, from a storm that sticks
around for days.
“You could not draw this forecast up. You could not dream this
forecast up,” William B. “Brock”
Long, administrator of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency,
said Monday.
Two of his predecessors and
other former FEMA officials concurred. “I don’t remember an

houston — When help finally
came, the floodwater was so
high that the rescue boat motored right up to the balcony of
Stephanie Browning’s secondfloor apartment.
Browning, her boyfriend, his
two young sons, their two dogs
and eight neighbors clambered
into the boat. It brought them to
a huge city dump truck, which
eventually deposited them,
soaked but safe, at the George R.
Brown Convention Center, which
has been turned into a cavernous
shelter for Harvey evacuees.
“It was really scary — you’re in
the boat, and you don’t see roads,
you see tops of trees,” said Browning, 41, sitting on a cot with her
family amid thousands of identical cots in the nearly 2 millionsquare-foot downtown shelter.

ricane Harvey pelted Texas on Monday as forecasters warned that the
soaking rains would continue for
days and major flooding would
spread to neighboring states.
Texas officials said that at least
nine people had died statewide as a
result of the storm, as floodwaters
continued to turn streets into waterways and gush into buildings
Monday, a full two days after Harvey
made landfall. Authorities expect
the death toll to rise as rescue efforts
go on and as more rain, rising rivers
and surging floodwaters pummel
the Gulf Coast.
President Trump late Monday
pledged swift action by the federal
government to provide relief to
states affected by Harvey, and he is
scheduled to visit Texas on Tuesday.
“Recovery will be a long and
difficult road, and the federal
government stands ready, willing
and able to assist in that effort,”
he said during a joint news conference with Finnish President
Sauli Niinisto.
First responders and good Samaritans took to boats to rescue
stranded residents, with authorities warning that more than
30,000 people across the region
could be forced from their homes
by the time skies are expected to
clear later this week.
“We are not out of the woods
yet,” Elaine Duke, the acting
Homeland Security secretary, said
during a Monday briefing in
Washington. “Harvey is still a dangerous and historic storm.”
Fears also grew beyond Texas,
with particular concern centering
on flood-prone Louisiana, where
forecasts have called for as much
as two feet of rainfall in some
areas. Trump on Monday declared
“emergency conditions” in Louisiana, evoking memories of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
As if to underscore those fears,

What did it take to unite blacks and Jews? Trump.
President Trump
has united us,
after all.
He brought
together the Rev.
Al Sharpton and
Dana
the Jews.
Milbank
This modernWASHINGTON day miracle was
on display
SKETCH
Monday, at the
Martin Luther
King Jr. Memorial on the Mall, 54
years to the day after the great
man gave his greatest speech.
There, clergy of all varieties, but
mostly rabbis and black
ministers, came together in
common cause against the
despicable anti-Semitism and
racism Trump has unleashed,
most conspicuously in
Charlottesville.
Sharpton has been a
controversial figure in the Jewish
community for decades, earning
criticism during the Crown
Heights riot in 1991 and when he
called a Jewish landlord in
Harlem a “white interloper”
before a deadly attack on the
man’s store in 1995.
But that was long ago, and a
rehabilitated Sharpton, who has
privately expressed regrets to
Jewish leaders for his past
actions, made Jews the
centerpiece of his Thousand
Minister March for Justice on
Monday. The civil rights leader,
joined by Martin Luther King III,
stopped in at a pre-march prayer
session held by the Religious
Action Center of Reform
Judaism, and addressed the
assembly of 300 rabbis, cantors
and lay leaders.
Sharpton told the Jews that
“we could not commemorate this
day and face the challenges today
without standing together as Dr.
King stood 54 years ago.”
Invoking those murdered in the
Freedom Summer of 1964, he
went on: “We should never forget
that it was Goodman, Chaney
and Schwerner that died
together — two Jews and a black
— to give us the right to vote.”
Sharpton spoke of Rabbi
Abraham Joshua Heschel, who
marched with King at Selma, and
he addressed the more recent ill
feelings. “We have had days good
and bad, but from this day
forward . . . we’re going to make
sure we do our part to keep this
family together,” he said. “When
we can see people in 2017 with
torches in their hands, talking
about ‘Jews will not replace us,’
it’s time for us to stop praying to
the cheap seats and come
together.”
Some of the rabbis shouted
“amen.”
Jewish leaders applauding Al
Sharpton? Who knew? “Miracles
out of a mess,” proclaimed
Reconstructionist Rabbi Malka
Binah Klein of Philadelphia. It’s
tragic that it took Trump’s
bigotry and the spectacle of
Charlottesville to remind Jews
and African Americans of their
shared vulnerabilities. But it
played out movingly at Monday’s
march, which was in planning
long before the violence in
Charlottesville.
Rather than 1 million men,
Sharpton asked for 1,000
ministers, and got somewhat
more than that among the 3,000
assembled for Monday’s march.
Rabbis swayed and clapped to
hip-hop and gospel music. There
were skullcaps of every color and
size, mainline Protestant
ministers in white collars and
colorful shawls, black
evangelicals in bright choir
robes, black-robed monks,
Buddhists in saffron, a Sikh in a
yellow turban. There were Black
Lives Matter signs and posters
with verses of scripture.
As if by way of greeting, a
white-and-green chopper from
the Marine One fleet buzzed low
over the crowd during the
opening prayer. Speaker after
speaker, regardless of color or
creed, denounced the person
who rides in that helicopter, and
more than one faulted Jerry
Falwell Jr. and other white
evangelicals for the “sin of
silence” in the face of the hatred
Trump has stirred.
A cantor led the crowd in the
Hebrew song “Hine Ma Tov” —
how good it is for brothers to live
as one. A black Jewish woman in
a tallit — a Jewish prayer shawl —
spoke, and a rabbi blew a shofar.
A black Catholic nun spoke.
“God’s majestic creation,”
observed Rabbi Jonah Dov
Pesner, head of the Religious
Action Center. From the Nazis in
Charlottesville, Pesner said, “we
learned that anti-Semitism and
white supremacism are
intertwined. They are dual
threats that call us to act and
confront them together and
directly.”
African Americans responded
with cries of “Yes!” and “All
right!” to the rabbi’s preaching.
Sharpton picked up the theme.
“You’re going to see the victims of
Nazism, the victims of white
supremacy, march to the Justice
Department and say we don’t
care what party is in, we are not
going to be out,” he told the
crowd. “We are coming together
like Dr. King and Abraham
Heschel did, like Goodman,
Chaney and Schwerner did.”
Jonah Geffen, a conservative
rabbi from New York, in white
robe and tallit, liked what he
heard. He pronounced Sharpton
“a totally different man” from the
Sharpton of old.
Joining Sharpton’s march was
Jesse Jackson, of “Hymietown”
fame. But there is no time to
dwell on old slights when neoNazis are at the door. “We don’t
have a person to lose,” King told
the Jews at their prayer meeting
Monday morning. “We are
brothers and sisters.”

President irked by
criticism from Tillerson,
Cohn on Charlottesville
BY A BBY P HILLIP
AND A NNE G EARAN
President Trump’s senior aides
are increasingly airing their private disagreements publicly, exposing a widening rift between
the president and key members of
his administration over his handling of racial divisions exposed
by white supremacist violence in
Charlottesville.
Trump — who has fumed at the
media’s criticism of his response
to Charlottesville — is also annoyed at similar criticism coming
from within his administration,
especially from National Economic Council Director Gary
Cohn and Secretary of State Rex
Tillerson, according to people in
regular touch with the White
House.
Over the weekend, Tillerson
suggested that Trump “speaks for
himself” rather than for the country’s values in his reaction to Charlottesville. Defense Secretary Jim
Mattis
counseled
U.S.
troops to “hold the line until our
country gets back to respecting
each other” and is able to “get the
power of inspiration back.”
And Cohn sharply criticized the
president’s handling of the situation in an interview with the Financial Times last week.
Among Trump’s allies, the
emerging voices of dissent are being likened to a “mutiny” by disloyal aides. But so far, Trump has
not taken any action to dismiss
anyone, to the disappointment of
those same allies.
“You should not air the dirty
laundry with the president in public,” said Roger Stone, a longtime
Trump adviser and political ally.
“On a personal level, he should
feel betrayed because he has
been.”
Cohn became the first administration official to publicly discuss
his disagreement with the president over Charlottesville, telling
the Financial Times that Trump
“must do better in consistently and
unequivocally” condemning hate
groups. Trump was widely criti-
cized for doubling down on his
assessment that “many sides”
were to blame for violence in Charlottesville after a rally organized by
neo-Nazis, white supremacists
and the Ku Klux Klan turned deadly.
Cohn, who is Jewish, said that
he had come under enormous
pressure from friends and associates to speak out and that he aired
his disagreement with the president bluntly in private. But Trump
was irritated that Cohn fueled the
public controversy over Trump’s
comments.
“There’s a lot of frustration,”
said one Republican in frequent
touch with the White House who
spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly. “A lot of
Trump’s frustration with his staff
is that no matter what he does, if
he has a good day, it never lasts for
more than 24 hours, and it’s always because he does something,
but he blames others.”
Coming from the nation’s top
diplomat, Tillerson’s assertion
Sunday that Trump does not speak
for the country’s values produced
particularly deep reverberations.
disagreements with the president
and some of his aides in recent
months. Tillerson reportedly
toyed with resigning this summer
over frustrations with the White
House on policy and administrative matters, but quashed rumors
of a “Rexit” by telling reporters,
“I’m not going anywhere.”
On Monday, a day after his comments on Fox, Tillerson dined
with Trump and Vice President
Pence at the White House, a
meeting that State Department
spokesman R.C. Hammond said
was focused on planning for 2018
travel and the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York next
month.
“This whole idea that he’s considering anything — it just doesn’t
add up,” Hammond said, referring
to speculation that Tillerson
might leave the administration.
Trump is also being influenced
by some allies who have long been
suspicious of aides in his orbit,
including Tillerson, Mattis and
Cohn, whom they believe represent establishment views and are,
at best, only loosely tied to the
president’s agenda.
“You should not air the dirty laundry with the
president in public.”
Roger Stone, longtime Trump adviser and political ally
Tillerson also said that he and
the State Department speak for
American values of tolerance and
equality, and he rejected criticism
from a United Nations committee
last week that the Trump administration had set a poor example for
the rest of the world. Tillerson told
Fox News host Chris Wallace that
he does not think Trump’s remarks leave other nations confused about what America stands
for.
“We express America’s values
from the State Department — our
commitment to freedom, our
commitment to equal treatment
of people the world over,” Tillerson said in the “Fox News Sunday”
interview, “and that message has
never changed.”
The comments have only added
to long-simmering mutual frustration between Trump and his
secretary of state, who has had
policy, personnel and personality
Tillerson and a close circle of
aides have clashed with White
House officials over the many job
vacancies and sense of torpor at
the State Department, with each
side blaming the other for failing
to move nominees through the
hiring and Senate confirmation
process.
The former ExxonMobil chief
executive has also been blunt
about his policy disagreements
with the president and with other
Trump advisers. Tillerson said he
thought the United States would
have been better served by remaining in the Paris climate accord and trying to amend it than
by quitting it entirely, as Trump
announced he was doing.
And although Tillerson supported the approach to the expansion of forces in Afghanistan that
Trump announced last week, he
has crossed some Trump allies
who think he has influenced the
president to be softer on “radical
Islamic terror,” a term Trump used
regularly as a candidate but has
since uttered far less often.
Cohn has also been at odds with
some Trump supporters who
count him among a clutch of
White House aides who are more
closely aligned with Democrats
than Trump’s agenda.
The prospect of disloyalty in
Trump’s Cabinet has only fueled
suspicion among some of his allies,
including those who have been
pushed out of the White House
under new Chief of Staff John F.
Kelly but still maintain lines of
communication with the president.
“We have a lot of people in the
White House of Donald J. Trump
who not only have been comfortable working for Hillary [Clinton],
but they probably would have had
a Cabinet post as well,” said Sebastian Gorka, a White House
aide who was ousted Friday, a
week after his ally, chief strategist
Stephen K. Bannon, was removed
from his administration post.
“That is not sound, that is not
what the American people voted
for.
“The president knows it,” Gorka
added.
Mattis has been far more circumspect in his views. The comments to troops caught on tape
over the weekend showed the retired general delivering a pep talk
to service members, urging them
to remain vigilant in defense of a
divided country that he portrayed
as having lost its way. Those comments were interpreted by some
as a critique of Trump’s leadership.
“They all agreed to serve for a
number of different reasons —
patriotism was certainly one of
the primary motivations,” said
Eliot Cohen, who was a State Department official in the George W.
Bush administration and has been
a vocal critic of Trump. “Very few
of them are there because they
love him.
“Some of them are thinking:
‘This is potentially a very dangerous time for the country. I will go
in and do my best, in effect, to save
the country,’ ” he added.

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. on
Monday gave Texas a temporary
reprieve from complying with a
lower court’s order to start
redrawing congressional
districts it ruled were
discriminatory.
A three-judge panel in San

drawn to diminish the influence
of minority voters. It scheduled a
court hearing next week to begin
the process of redrawing the
districts.
Texas on Friday asked the

Alito, who handles emergency

ILLINOIS
Governor signs bill on
immigrant protections
Illinois will limit how local
and state police can cooperate
with federal immigration
authorities under a plan signed
into law Monday by Gov. Bruce
Rauner, a move that puts the
first-term Republican at odds
with his party on immigration.
The narrow measure prohibits
police from searching, arresting
or detaining someone solely
because of immigration status or
because of federal immigration
detainers. But local authorities
will be able to communicate with
immigration agents and hold
someone for immigration
authorities if there’s a valid
criminal warrant, according to
the new law. It takes effect
immediately.
Proponents say the measure
falls short of a “sanctuary” law
because it leaves the door open to
communication and ensures the
state complies with federal law.
The move comes as President
Trump has threatened to crack
down on sanctuary cities, which
have laws friendly to immigrants
living in the United States
without legal permission.

violent skirmishes between blackclad antifa members and rightwing demonstrators circulated on
the Internet.
About 400 officers were deployed to a park in downtown
Berkeley on Sunday to separate
“No to Marxism in America” demonstrators and “Rally Against
Hate” counterprotesters, but police withdrew shortly after the arrival of a group of antifa, or “antifascists.”
As officers retreated, the antifa
chased down rallygoers and supporters of President Trump, in
some cases surrounding them and
beating them while they were on
the ground, according to video footage and an Associated Press reporter who witnessed the clashes.
Police said they withdrew because they could no longer tell the
two sides apart.
“There were no distinct groups
to keep separate,” said Berkeley
police spokeswoman Jennifer
Coates. “The vast amount of force
needed to keep demonstrators out
of the park would have been unreasonable.”
Coates blamed the antifa for
setting off the skirmishes. “Antifa
wanted to provoke a confrontation,” she said.
Police said they had arrested 13
people. Those arrested appeared
to include both left-leaning counterprotesters and right-leaning
rallygoers.
But half of those arrested were
charged with minor offenses such
as violating park rules, raising the
possibility that those responsible
for the moblike attacks had escaped.
Brittany Moorman, 26, said
they had come to Martin Luther
King Jr. Civic Center Park to protest against white supremacists
they expected to attend the rally.
“There is an unprecedented level of hatred and violence in this
country that has been escalating
over the past couple of years,”
Moorman said. “I won’t stand for
it. Neither will my friends.”
Moorman said they don’t belong to the antifa and didn’t dress
in black. Moorman said they were
arrested for pulling a blue bandanna up over their face before the
violence began. Moorman was
charged with violating park rules
and security rules for city buildings.
Moorman, who lives in Oakland
and works for a nonprofit organization devoted to racial justice,
said they were placed in a paddywagon with other counterprotesters and several people they described as “white supremacists.”
A friend, Yesenia Mendez, also
was arrested. Mendez, 22, was
charged with assault with a deadly
weapon, resisting police and wearing a mask to evade recognition in
the commission of any public offense. Videos on social media
showed a handcuffed Mendez
screaming for her service dog,
which was taken from her by police.

The police department of Watertown, Conn., used the military
surplus equipment program to acquire an armored vehicle, shown

armor.
“It is one thing for federal officials to work with local authorities
to reduce or solve crime, but it is
another for them to subsidize militarization,” Rand said in a statement.
Civil rights activists also were
upset about the restoration of the
weapons program. Vanita Gupta,
the head of the civil rights division
of the Justice Department in the
Obama administration, said in a
statement, “These guidelines
were created after Ferguson to
ensure that police departments
had a guardian, not warrior, mentality.”
The transfer of extra weapons
and gear from the Defense Department occurred through the
1033 Program created by Congress
in 1990, originally for use in drug
enforcement by federal and state
law enforcement. But in 1997, the
program was expanded to include
all law enforcement agencies, although with a preference for those
with anti-drug or anti-terrorism
programs.
The White House said the 1033
Program had resulted in the transfer of more than $5.4 billion worth
of surplus military equipment to
state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies, including armored
vehicles, riot gear, rifles, ammunition and computers that had been
scrapped by the Defense Department.
But during the civil unrest that
erupted after the police shooting
of Michael Brown in Ferguson in
August 2014, many people were
troubled by scenes of oversized
military vehicles and heavily armored police pointing high-powered rifles at protesters. The 1033
Program received new scrutiny as
public records showed how much
military surplus equipment had
been distributed to local police.
In January 2015, Obama created a working group to make recommendations to change the program, which called for creating
lists of “prohibited equipment”
that could no longer be distributed to police and “controlled equipment” that could be provided only
for a demonstrated need.
The “prohibited equipment” included tracked armored vehicles
and weaponized vehicles of any
kind, rifles and ammunition of
.50-caliber or higher, and grenade
launchers. The “controlled equipment” included specialized firearms, manned and unmanned aircraft, explosives and riot gear.
A background paper prepared
by the Justice Department cites
two articles published this month
in the American Economic Journal that found that distributing
military weapons and equipment
to civilian law enforcement had
“generally positive effects” and
“reduced street-level crime.” One
of the studies calculated that for
every $5,800 in military aid given
to law enforcement agencies
through the 1033 Program, society
saved about $112,000 in costs because of prevented crime.
The Justice Department also
notes that armored vehicles and
other military gear were used to
protect the officers who killed the
perpetrators of the 2015 mass
shooting in San Bernardino,
Calif., and that a military-style
helmet saved the life of an officer
responding to the Pulse nightclub
mass shooting in Orlando in 2016.
In announcing the reduction of
the program, Obama said in 2015
that “militarized gear sometimes
gives people a feeling like [police]
are an occupying force as opposed
to a part of the community there
to protect them.”
The Justice Department background paper said Trump’s decision to fully restore the program
“sends the message that we care
more about public safety than
about how a piece of equipment
looks, especially when that equipment has been shown to reduce
crime, reduce complaints against
and assaults on police, and makes
officers more effective.”

President Donald Trump plans
to resume the transfer of surplus
weapons, vehicles and other
equipment from the nation’s military to its state and local law
enforcement agencies, reviving a
program that was sharply curtailed by President Barack Obama
two years ago. The program
launched in 1990 but was greatly
limited after negative public reaction to images of heavily militarized police in the streets of Ferguson, Mo., and other sites of civil
unrest.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
announced the move Monday at
the Fraternal Order of Police convention in Nashville and said the
president would do so by executive order. The police union had
lobbied for the restoration of the
program, and Trump said he
would do so during his campaign.
The restrictions on distributing
military surplus equipment to police “went too far,” Sessions told
the union Monday. “We will not
put superficial concerns above
public safety. . . . The executive
order the president will sign today
will ensure that you can get the
lifesaving gear that you need to do
your job and send a strong message that we will not allow criminal activity, violence and lawlessness to become the new normal.”
The decision to restore the flow
of military weaponry to civilian
law enforcement was the latest
move by the Trump administration both to stake out a hard-line
stance on law and order as it views
it and to undo actions by the
Obama administration that were
unpopular in some quarters of law
enforcement.
The police union’s leadership
applauded the change. “Protective
equipment is essential to officer
and public safety in a wide variety
of life-and-death situations,” its
president, Chuck Canterbury,
said. “This decisive action by President Trump fulfills a promise he
made to the FOP during the campaign, and police officers nationwide are grateful to him.”
The National Sheriffs’ Association also declared its support for
Trump’s action.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) tweeted
his disapproval of the move shortly after it was announced and then
said he would be reintroducing
his Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act, which prohibits transfer of equipment deemed “offensive” such as weapons, but not
equipment used for “defensive”
purposes, such as helmets or body
whatever they call it.”
“He’s nonviolent, he’s got absolutely no police record,” he added.
“I think he only ever got one speeding ticket.”
Before the violence broke out, a
crowd of about 2,000 had
marched peacefully throughout
the sunny afternoon at the “Rally
Against Hate” gathering. About
100 anarchists and antifa — their
faces hidden behind black bandannas and hoodies — jumped
over plastic and concrete barriers.
A Trump supporter wielding
pepper spray was smacked to the
month.
“I applaud the more than 7,000
people who came out today to
peacefully oppose bigotry, hatred
and racism that we saw on display in Charlottesville,” Berkeley
Mayor Jesse Arreguín (D) said in
a statement. “However, the violence that small group of protesters engaged in against residents
and the police, including throwing smoke bombs, is unacceptable. Fighting hate with hate does
not work and only makes each
side more entrenched in their
ideological camps.”
On Sunday, police in Berkeley
maintained a strict perimeter
around the area in the beginning
of the afternoon, including enforcing an emergency city rule outlawing sticks and other potential
weapons from the park. Fifty officers were spread out at the area’s
four entrances, according to the
Daily Californian.
But antifa protesters — armed
with sticks and shields and clad in
shin pads and gloves — largely
evaded the security checks, and by
1:30 p.m. police reportedly left the
security line at the park entrance
at Center and Milvaia streets.
Berkeley Police Chief Andrew
Greenwood told the AP that the
decision was strategic — a confrontation was sure to spark more
violence between the protesters
and police.
“No need for a confrontation
over a grass patch,” Greenwood
said.
J USTIN J OUVENAL
The American Civil Liberties
Union filed a lawsuit Monday
challenging the Trump administration’s controversial ban on
transgender people enlisting, receiving Armed Forces medical
care for sex-reassignment surgeries, and possibly continuing to
serve.
The suit, filed in federal court in
Maryland on behalf of six activeduty military members, argues
that the ban is unconstitutional
because it discriminates against
transgender people.
“It’s such an egregious attempt
to target transgender individuals
who have devoted their careers
and lives to the United States,” said
Chase Strangio, a staff attorney for
the ACLU. “The president claims
in tweets transgender service
costs money and military readiness. The reality is the Department of Defense concluded after
years of study that is baseless.”
A Defense Department spokesman referred questions to the Justice Department.
“We are examining the claims
in this lawsuit and conferring
within the Government,” the Jus-
BEFORE
tice Department wrote in a statement.
The lawsuit was filed days after
Trump formally ordered the Pentagon to ban the recruitment of
openly transgender people and to
determine whether those already
serving should be allowed to remain. It is at least the third civil
suit challenging Trump’s transgender military ban.
In late July, Trump first floated
his plan for a transgender military
ban in a series of tweets.
“After consultation with my
Generals and military experts,
please be advised that the United
States Government will not accept
or allow Transgender individuals
to serve in any capacity in the U.S.
Military,” Trump wrote. “Our military must be focused on decisive
and overwhelming victory and
cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the
military would entail.”
The decision was cheered by
many religious conservatives but
angered LGBT activists, liberals
and some in Trump’s own party,
such as Sen. John McCain (RAriz.), who complained about the
president rolling out a major policy on Twitter and possibly forcing
people out of the military who
were otherwise qualified.
The ban reversed an Obama
administration decision to allow
transgender people to serve openly. The armed forces were set to
begin enlisting transgender peo-
ple July 1, but Defense Secretary
Jim Mattis delayed that move, citing a need for more study.
Before the policy change by the
Obama administration, the Pentagon had concluded that there was
no basis for the military to exclude
transgender people.
There is no official tally of transgender military members, and estimates vary widely. One recent
study by the Rand Corp. put the
number on active duty at about
2,500, while another from the Williams Institute at UCLA Law
School estimated that there were
15,500 on active duty, in the National Guard and in the reserves.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit are
Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Brock
Stone, an anonymous Air Force
senior airman, Airman 1st Class
Seven Ero George, Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Teagan Gilbert, Army
Staff Sgt. Kate Cole, and Marine
Corps Technical Sgt. Tommie
Parker.
Stone, 34, who is the lead plaintiff and is based at Fort Meade in
Maryland, has served in the Navy
for 11 years, including a ninemonth deployment to Afghanistan, according to the lawsuit.
Stone has been receiving treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and is expected to undergo surgery related to
sex reassignment in 2018, according to the lawsuit.
None of the plaintiffs were
available for comment.

HARVEY swamps Texas
JOE RAEDLE/GETTY IMAGES
By boat or on foot, Houston residents leave their homes behind. Every major waterway in the city has flooded, and even more rain is expected in the area as the remnants of Hurricane Harvey linger.
Federal response ramps up
as flooding fears continue
HARVEY FROM A1
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
early Monday began releasing water from two Houston dams to relieve pressure from the downpour,
which has deposited as much rain
in a few days as the region averages
in an entire year. Most of the damage in New Orleans wrought by Katrina occurred when levees burst,
allowing waters to inundate the city.
New Orleans is under a tornado
and flash flood watch until Thursday, and the National Weather
Service forecasts that the city
could see five to 10 inches of rain in
the next few days.
The immediate focus for many
remained on Houston, the country’s fourth-largest city and a
sprawling metropolitan area that
has seen its share of floods. But the
deluge of the past two days is
unprecedented.
River on Monday to gaze at the
water and ponder their fate. She
said she checked online traffic maps
and couldn’t find a route to safety.
“Every way out, there are roads
that are flooded,” she said, holding
an umbrella against the rain. “So we
might not even find a way out.”
In the River Park subdivision,
Byron Golden, 60, and his wife
planned to stay put in their home.
Other neighbors had tried to
leave, only to meet flooded roads
separating them from Interstate
10, a main artery out of town.
“We did plan an escape route,
but at this time it may be too late to
leave,” Golden said. He figured it
would be better to get caught in a
flood in his two-story house than
in his car on the road.
Golden and his wife spent the
day putting important documents
and sentimental possessions into
plastic bags and carrying their im-
“Every way out, there are roads that are flooded.
So we might not even find a way out.”
Kim Adoubeif, resident of Fort Bend County, west of Houston
Every major waterway in the
city spilled over its banks. Gullies
overflowed. Even neighborhoods
far from a creek or bayou flooded.
The hardest-hit areas were in the
south and southeast, the downstream end of the waterways.
But the southwest will be the
next theater for catastrophe. The
Brazos River, which runs through
Fort Bend County about 20 miles
west of downtown Houston, has
been swelling as the runoff from
the storm collects in its banks.
National Weather Service models
showed the river rising to 59 feet
by Tuesday, topping the previous
record of 54.7 feet.
Fort Bend County Judge John
Hebert warned Monday night that
more than a hundred square miles
along the river could flood overnight and into Tuesday as the river
swells to unprecedented heights.
“They can guarantee we’ll have a
record flood in for Bend County,”
he said. “In areas under mandatory
evacuation, the danger is very real.”
Authorities issued mandatory
and voluntary evacuation orders
for parts of that area and warned
that anyone who ignores mandatory evacuation orders will not be
aided by first responders when the
waters rise. But with virtually all the
main thoroughfares already closed
because of high water, many of the
affected residents saw no way out.
Kim Adoubeif, 60, was among
about a dozen residents of the
Greatwood subdivision who stood
in the rain atop a levee on the Brazos
portant things upstairs.
Some who did evacuate ran into
difficulties Monday as they tried to
reach shelters. In north Houston,
for example, rescuers who picked
up people forced out of their
drenched homes brought them to
a fire station to be transported to
the M.O. Campbell Center, a school
gym and activity center that had
been converted to a shelter.
But when the shelter reached capacity, its doors were shut, and at
least 300 people were stranded at
the fire station.
The horror stories led authorities to urge patience and persistence on the part of residents
needing help.
“Please don’t give up on us.
None of us are going to give up,”
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo
said at a news conference Monday.
One of the largest shelters, the
George R. Brown Convention Center downtown, took in hundreds
of evacuees Monday. Officials
there said that people were lined
up to take refuge and that Red
Cross officials were prepared to
accept 5,000 of them in total.
Among those helping with the
rescue efforts alongside first responders were volunteers with
boats. On Monday afternoon, dozens from both groups crowded
near the Grand Vista subdivision
on Harlem Road in the Brazos
River area, on the edge of the
water that stretched from the road
to the rainy horizon.
Boats were unloading evacuees
— among them the elderly and
children — onto the road, then
turning back into the flood.
“It messed me up seeing the kids
and babies,” said Jorge Ramirez,
28, who brought over his Alumacraft flat-bottom boat after seeing
on Facebook that folks were stuck
in this neighborhood. “That’s who
we’re trying to get out first.”
He said he’d made about five
trips in four hours.
Authorities also faced new
questions about whether they
should have evacuated Houston.
Asked Monday about the decision
to recommend that people shelter
in place rather than leave the city,
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said there
was no point in thinking about
past decisions.
“We are where we are now,” he
said.
In a sign of the growing federal
response, the Department of
Homeland Security said late Monday that it was activating a “surge
capacity force” that would allow
non-Federal Emergency Management Agency employees across
the department to deploy to the
storm zone to assist with recovery
missions.
Abbott, a Republican, praised
the federal government’s response
to the disaster.
National Guard units from
across the country had readied
cargo jets and Black Hawk helicopters to help with the response, the
Pentagon said Monday. FEMA said
federal agencies have more than
5,000 employees working in Texas.
Abbott also said that a crisis
continued to unfold in Rockport,
Aransas Pass and other coastal
communities that took the brunt
of Harvey when it spun into land
as a Category 4 hurricane. Local
media reported that rescue workers were continuing the hunt for
missing residents.
Of those confirmed dead late
Monday, six were in Harris County, which includes Houston; one
was in Rockport, near where Harvey made landfall; and another
person was discovered in La
Marque, near Galveston. Police
said a woman in her 60s died in
Porter, a town north of Houston;
she was napping in her bedroom
when a large oak tree landed on
her mobile home.

For transportation, a slow recovery
BY
A SHLEY H ALSEY III ,
M ICHAEL L ARIS,
M ARTINE P OWERS
AND L UZ L AZO
Under the threat of more rain
and flooding this week, the regional hub that is Houston faced
the daunting prospect of clearing
mud-swept roadways, opening
two of the nation’s busiest airports and resuming operations at
the
country’s
secondbusiest port.
Many streets remained impassable, with water more than
waist-high. Those highways not
flooded too often led to others
that were. And officials said it was
too soon to say when the transit
system would resume operations.
Houston is a city that for the
past eight years led the nation in
growth, and although transit was
considered to have its place, the
city’s backbone is the oil industry,
which relies heavily on new highways to get around town. When
the city spread out into Harris
County — which has 6.5 million
people to the city’s 2 million — the
connections were roadways. The
state maintains more than 1,200
miles of them, including four interstates, three of which crisscross the downtown area.
Even though the worst of the
storm appeared to be over, transportation officials continued to
urge people to stay off the roads.
“We’re expecting more rain,”
Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña
said. “The roads are dangerous.
Stay off the roads.”
Once the water clears, it may
take weeks or months before
roads are fully ready for travel,
said Dave Newcomb, a senior research engineer at the Texas A&M
Transportation Institute. He said
the primary concern will be local
streets and roadways, not the
freeway system.
“The freeways are probably going to be okay,” Newcomb said.
“They’re built with lots of support
underneath them. They’re built
for heavy loads and adverse conditions.”
But local roads built on rainsaturated soil may be left in a
weakened state, he said, taking a
month or two before they stabilize. Bridges that had swiftmoving floodwaters around them
must be checked for scouring
around their supports, he said.
The sheer scale of the immediate recovery is daunting.
“It is really difficult because
we’re so spread out and highwaydependent,” said Kyle Shelton,
director of strategic partnerships
at the Kinder Institute, an urbanresearch think tank at Houston’s
Rice University. “We just have so
many streets and so many roads
and so much other infrastructure
to make sure is okay and bring
back online. That’s going to take
weeks and months.”
Houston’s two big airports —
George Bush Intercontinental
Airport and the William P. Hobby
Airport — will begin to see traffic
on their runways even as the rest
of the region struggles to find its
footing. Officials said Hobby will
remain closed until Wednesday;
Bush until Thursday.
The magnitude of the backup
to the national aviation system
caused when Houston shuts
down was evident Monday: 772
flights had been set to depart
from the two airports, carrying
close to 94,000 passengers. The
two airports had a record 1.9 million passengers pass through security last month.
“You may not even be heading
to Houston and still run into
this,” said Anne McDermott of
Farecompare.com. She said that
late Sunday a flight to Dallas landed in Memphis because so many
Houston-bound flights had been
diverted to Dallas. “It’s going to
continue to be a fluid situation.”
The Houston Metro’s bus system, three light-rail lines and
paratransit services were shut
down Monday, with no word on
when they would resume service.
In a statement, Metro officials
said they will monitor the situation to determine when it would
be safe to resume service.
If history is precedent, it may
be a while before those buses are
back on the road. After Hurricane
Katrina in 2005, it took weeks to
restore bus service in New Orleans — partly because of the
condition of flooded roadways,
but also because hundreds of buses were underwater after the
storm. With the city’s bus fleet
unusable, the Federal Emergency
Management Agency had to
scramble to bring in more than a
thousand private coaches to help
with evacuation efforts.
The Houston Metro tried to
prevent a similar outcome for this
storm, parking more than 100
buses in the HOV lane on an
elevated section of Interstate 59.
“This is a city that was built, in
large part, in defiance of nature,”
said Christof Spieler, an urban
planner who is on the board of
Metro.
“Basically, developers just
treated this as a big empty canvas
and just spread out across it. We
tend to sort of ignore the natural
underpinnings of the city. When
this amount of rain falls, suddenly
that natural geography reasserts
itself.”
And in the long run, Houston —
like the rest of the country — has
to wrestle with how to become
more resilient in an era when
weather hazards are increasing.
Over the past three years, there
have been three floods that have
“all been labeled unprecedented,”
Shelton said.
While freeways and many local
streets have major sections that
are underwater, many other areas
are not submerged, depending on
their elevation and how much
rain there was in that particular
place.
Rapid development over the
past two decades — and the
sprawling networks of accompanying roadways, subdivisions and
parking lots — have left Houston
especially susceptible to major
flooding, said Samuel Brody, a
Texas A&M University urban
planning professor who leads the
Center for Texas Beaches and
Shores.
Such surfaces leave little return
path for floodwaters to go into the
ground or drainage channels.
“You’ve got a smearing of pavement all over a flood-prone region,” he said. “You’re putting
more impervious surfaces over a
large area that is dominated by
flood-prone, low-lying landscapes, so when it rains, there’s all
this impervious surface. It increases the volume and velocity of
water going into the bayous
which Houston uses as their primary drain system.”
Between 1996 and 2011, as development boomed, the percentage of impervious surfaces in
Houston grew by 25 percent,
Brody said, citing a report he led
that examined the effect of development on flood damage in the
Gulf of Mexico region. And although the extreme rainfall totals
from Harvey probably would
have caused flooding no matter
what, Brody said the presence of
pavement increases the amount
of damage on the ground.
The 25-mile-long complex of
docks and warehouses that make
up the Port of Houston planned to
remain closed Tuesday.
Kurt Nagle, chief executive of
the American Association of Port
Authorities, said that early indications show there is “light to
moderate” infrastructure damage
along the Houston Ship Channel
— 150 business facilities that generate $617 billion in economic
activity per year.
The continuing severe weather
may have further effects on the
ports in the region, Nagle said.
But even once things clear up,
significant work will need to be
done before shipping channels in
the area can reopen. The Coast
Guard will need to perform surveys of the area to determine
whether buoys and navigation
aids have been moved or lost, and
the Army Corps of Engineers will
need to perform a channel assessment to ensure that no debris is
blocking the shipping channels
under the surface.

Cost of storm cleanup seen
as a new test of governance
Trump pledges billions
in aid but renews threat
of shutdown over wall
BY M IKE D E B ONIS
AND D AMIAN P ALETTA
President Trump said Monday
that he would seek billions of dollars in assistance to rebuild Texas
and Louisiana from the flooding
caused by Hurricane Harvey but
renewed his threat to shut down
the government if Congress won’t
agree to begin building a wall on
the Mexican border.
Trump’s comments, delivered
at a White House news conference, illustrate the political minefield he will navigate in September as he tries to draw support for
disaster recovery funds but wages
a bitter fight with lawmakers from
both parties about whether U.S.
taxpayers should finance the creation of a wall that he has long
promised Mexico would fund.

action from Congress, certainly
from the president,” Trump said,
speaking to a reporter from Texas.
“You are going to get your funding.”
Congress must reach a budget
deal by Sept. 30 or many government operations will cease,
though House Speaker Paul D.
Ryan (R-Wis.) said last week that a
stopgap measure was likely to
pass, delaying a showdown until
later in the year.
In any case, Harvey’s devastation represents a new challenge
for the White House and Congress, requiring lawmakers to approve billions of dollars in recovery spending even though they
haven’t agreed on much else this
year. It will test whether Trump
can overcome deep divisions
within his own party on fiscal
matters to prioritize aid and
whether he can suspend his adversarial governing style and even
postpone his own agenda, notably
an overhaul of the tax code.
Trump said Monday that the
need to secure aid for Harvey victims would not prompt him to
stand down from threats to partially shut down the government if
Congress doesn’t provide funding
for a border wall. “It has nothing
to do with it,” Trump said.
He did not say how he would
secure the emergency funding for
Texas and Louisiana. In the past,
he has expressed similar confidence about passing other bills
only to have the process bog down
when lawmakers fought over details. One difference this time,
however, is that a number of Republicans and Democrats have already expressed support for the
idea of extending emergency
funds to flood-ravaged areas.
AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Ryan, said Congress stands
ready pending a formal aid request from the Trump administration. “We will help those affected
by this terrible disaster,” she said.
Democrats on Monday said
Congress ought to respond quickly to the growing calamity, challenging Republicans to refrain
from the politicking that surrounded the aid packages offered
to victims of previous major
storms.
“Republicans must be ready to
join Democrats in passing a timely
relief bill that makes all necessary
resources available through emergency spending,” House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
said.
A senior Democratic aide said
the party’s position is that emergency spending need not be offset
by cuts elsewhere in the federal
budget, making Pelosi’s statement
a challenge to Republicans who
have insisted that previous aid
packages not add to the federal
budget deficit.
When Sandy struck New Jersey
and New York in 2012, conservative Republicans insisted on offsetting any new spending. So
when President Barack Obama
pushed for a $60 billion package
of federal aid, it sparked more
than three months of partisan
sparring — a delay that left Democrats and northeastern Republicans fuming while the remainder
of the GOP fulminated against the
threat of a growing national debt
and the inclusion of spending they
deemed wasteful.
Texas’s Republican senators opposed the Sandy relief bill, arguing that it included extraneous
spending, as did most of the GOP
members of the Texas House delegation. White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, then a
South Carolina congressman, opposed the bill, as did Ryan, who
was serving as House Budget
BILL O'LEARY/THE WASHINGTON POST
“You are going to see very rapid action from Congress, certainly
from the president,” President Trump said at a news conference.
Committee chairman.
Raw emotions from that episode persist. Rep. Peter T. King
(R-N.Y.), who fought hard to secure funds after Sandy, said over
the weekend that he would support Harvey relief funds even
though Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) had
opposed Sandy funding.
“Ted Cruz & Texas cohorts voted vs NY/NJ aid after Sandy but
I’ll vote 4 Harvey aid. NY wont
abandon Texas,” King tweeted. “1
bad turn doesnt deserve another.”
Cruz, speaking Monday on
MSNBC, called the criticism “political sniping” and stood by his
vote against Sandy aid: “The problem with that particular bill is, it
became a $50 billion bill that was
filled with unrelated pork,” he
said. “It’s not right for politicians
to exploit a disaster when people
are hurting to pay for their own
political wish list.”
Democratic aides said that
while they expect the party to
support Harvey aid, lawmakers
will not be shy about pointing out
what they see as hypocrisy among
GOP lawmakers who opposed aid
for Sandy — which affected largely
Democratic states.
“Democrats certainly don’t forget how these Republicans voted
on other aid packages, that’s for
sure,” one senior Democratic aide
said Sunday.
Congressional sources said it
could be weeks before a specific
price tag for a relief bill emerges.
Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.), who represents part of the Houston metropolitan area, said Monday that he
has conferred with some of his
Texas congressional colleagues
about an emergency spending request and that he hopes political
squabbles will be set aside.
“This is what the government is
supposed to do — respond when
there’s a crisis, provide for the
safety of the public,” Green said.
The economic impact of major
storms can be severe. Hurricane
Katrina, in 2005, caused $160 billion in damage, and the remnants
of Hurricane Sandy in 2012 caused
about $70 billion in damage, according to inflation-adjusted figures provided by the federal government.
Some analysts on Monday had
already begun to assess Harvey’s
potential damage. JPMorgan
Chase sent a note to clients saying
the insured losses alone could
range from $10 billion to $20 billion, hitting private companies
that had sold flood coverage in the
area. But the total damage is expected to be much greater than
just the insured losses, as many
people in the area didn’t have
flood insurance, and there has
been substantial damage to roads,
bridges and other public infrastructure.
The federal Disaster Relief
Fund administered by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
had a balance of $3.8 billion at the
end of July, of which $1.6 billion is
already obligated, according to
the most recent federal report.
Trump declared Harvey a major
disaster Friday, making Texas victims eligible for relief from that
fund. But with damage estimates
already rising into the tens of billions of dollars, the fund’s balance
is almost certainly inadequate.
The White House had proposed
an 11 percent cut to FEMA’s budget
as a way to free up more money for
the military. GOP congressional
leaders had signaled they would
ignore that request and keep
FEMA funding basically flat, but
much more will have to be appropriated to respond to Harvey.
“All of our plans on disaster
recovery are premised with the
federal government coming in
with a big chunk of short-term
FEMA money and then a big
chunk of long-term bailout money,” said Edward Richards, director of the Louisiana State University Climate Change Law and Policy Project. “With the budget coming up and the debt ceiling coming
up, you could easily see this getting absolutely lost in the mix.”
A related issue is the status of
the National Flood Insurance Program. Its federal authorization expires Sept. 30, and it is more than
$24 billion in debt. The program
has a statutory borrowing limit of
about $30 billion, and numerous
new claims could require congressional action to ensure there is
enough funding.
Directing emergency funds to
areas hit by natural disasters had
traditionally been quick bipartisan exercises, but that changed
after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 —
when the Republican Study Committee, a group of House conservatives, pushed spending cuts
to compensate for the approximately $200 billion expected in
Katrina relief — including cutting
farm subsidies and Amtrak funding and postponing the Medicare
prescription-drug bill Republicans had approved two years earlier.
The study committee’s chairman at the time was Mike Pence,
who represented an Indiana
House district and is now vice
president. “We simply can’t allow
a catastrophe of nature to become
a catastrophe of debt for our children and grandchildren,” he said
at the time.
In a sign that the politics of
disaster relief could quickly
change, Rep. Mark Walker (N.C.),
the current chairman of the Republican Study Committee, declined to draw a hard line against
approving storm relief without
offsets.
“We’re not saying anything is
off the table,” he said. “This is such
a humanitarian crisis, and the dollar amount is unlike anything
we’ve seen before. I think it’s
something we’re going to have to
review.”
But Walker said he understands that members will have to
square their previous votes on disaster relief with their positions on
Harvey aid: “As far as saying, ‘Can
you explain why you wouldn’t vote
here, but in this case you would?’
— I think that’s an expectation
and, frankly, probably a pretty fair
question.”

HARVEY swamps Texas
JABIN BOTSFORD/THE WASHINGTON POST
Rescue crews direct people from a helicopter to a bus on Highway 69 in Houston on Monday. U.S. Coast Guard helicopters buzzed the city for much of the day and plucked stranded residents from rooftops.
National Guard troops drove massive trucks through high water, looking for people in desperate straits. Government officials and residents used social media to assist in rescue efforts.

made major deployments of

people in search-and-rescue
teams, a million liters of water,
a million meals, 20,520 tarps
and 70 generators.
RESPONSE FROM A1
exercise that says, ‘Now we’re
going to drop historic amounts of
rain on you for three days.’ We
never did anything like that,” former FEMA chief of staff Jason
McNamara said.
Harvey has exposed anew how
vulnerable the nation’s fourthlargest city is to the forces of
nature and the failings of infrastructure — and how natural disasters have a way of revealing the
fault lines in governmental operations.
Residents received mixed messages from the state capital and
Houston’s City Hall about whether to evacuate in advance of Harvey’s landfall late Friday, when it
was a Category 4 hurricane. Gov.
Greg Abbott (R) urged people to
leave voluntarily, but Houston’s
mayor said it was better to shelter
in place — a decision influenced
by the harsh memory of the evacuation in advance of Hurricane
Rita in 2005, when scores of
people died in overheated cars
stuck in highway traffic jams.
When asked Monday whether
the city should have been evacuated, the governor said there was
no point in thinking about past
decisions. “We are where we are
now,” he said.
Abbott announced that he had
mobilized the entire Texas National Guard to assist with rescue-and-recovery efforts. Surrounded by local officials from
the Corpus Christi area, he said
Texans are united in their effort to
recover from Harvey, and he rated the early federal response to
the disaster as an “A plus.”
FEMA said Monday that it already had made major deployments of personnel and resources
to Texas, including about 900
people in search-and-rescue
teams, a million liters of water, a
million meals, 20,520 tarps and
70 generators. The FEMA-coordinated response includes 100 ambulances and 15 air ambulances
from San Antonio.
U.S. Coast Guard helicopters
buzzed the city for much of the
day and plucked stranded residents from rooftops. National
Guard troops drove massive
trucks through high water, looking for people in desperate straits.
But professional first responders
could not meet all the demands of
people immersed in floodwater.
“Please don’t give up on us.
None of us are going to give up,”
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo
implored residents during a news
conference.
Texas state Rep. Armando
Walle (D), who represents a district on the north side of the
Houston metropolitan area, put
out a call on his Facebook page:
“If you know of any families still
needing to get rescued please let
JONATHAN BACHMAN/REUTERS
CHARLIE RIEDEL/ASSOCIATED PRESS
me know.” Within three hours, he
had a legal pad with 25 houses
listed.
“Government can’t do it all
alone,” Walle said later. “We’ve
had to have the county judge ask
for boats from the public. The
mayor has asked for boats. We’ve
had people all over the state
converge. The Cajun Navy is here
from Louisiana in their airboats.”
Social media has proved to be
the crucial piece of infrastructure
for rescue operations.
“We are actually seeing situations where Bob down the street
has a flat-bottom boat and Mary
up the street has a canoe, and you
put those resources together, hitch
them together, and get everybody
on the block the hell out of there,”
said Matthew Seeger, a communications professor at Wayne State
University in Detroit who advises
government agencies.
“That may not sound significant, but when you think about
where we were just 15 years ago
when Katrina hit and we had to
pass out fliers — in shelters, by
boat, whatever we could do just to
get some basic health and safety
information out there. Not everyone has a transistor radio,” Seeger
JONATHAN BACHMAN/REUTERS
noted, “but almost everyone has
access to Twitter.”
Retired Adm. Thad Allen, who
played a key role in shoring up the
initially weak federal response to
Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and
served as national incident commander for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, said government agencies seem to be doing their best in
a complex situation.
“I’m not sure how much more
you can ask for,” he said. “If you
have more total fires than you
have firemen, the scale, complexity and scope becomes a risk aggregator.”
Allen also pointed out that
every storm is different: “When
you’ve seen one hurricane, you’ve
seen one hurricane.”
W. Craig Fugate, who led
FEMA during Barack Obama’s
presidency, said the agency’s previous advance planning had been
more concerned with “no-notice”
disasters such as earthquakes. He
said he pushed FEMA staff members to think outside the box.
“You have to prepare for the
things that haven’t happened, or
you haven’t thought of that will
exceed the daily capabilities,” he
said.
Yet he acknowledged what is
obvious in the wake of Harvey:
“You can’t anticipate every scenario that might happen.”
Having learned lessons from
Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath,
FEMA positioned many of its
personnel in advance of Harvey,
as did the Red Cross and other
organizations. But when the
floodwater rose, Houstonians
were still largely on their own.
Some rode to shelters or hospitals
in the back of city dump trucks,
while others waded through
chest-deep water.
Leaders of the federal response
to the Hurricane Harvey disaster
had an early morning news conference Monday in Washington
that was by turns a declaration of
competence, an expression of
grave concern and a plea for the
public’s help.
“Under the president’s direction, we have made every resource available to respond to
this historic storm,” said Elaine
Duke, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security,
who on Tuesday will accompany
President Trump on a tour of
storm-ravaged areas.
And that’s before the actual
cleanup begins — which FEMA
chief Long is warning will be “one
of the largest recovery housing
missions that the state has ever
seen.”
McNamara, the former FEMA
chief of staff, said Texas officials
are overwhelmed by the task of
saving lives.
“Very quickly, you’re going to
get behind the curve on what
comes next week,” he said. “The
other thing? Schools. How do
we get the schools open and
kids back to school? If they
can’t go back to school, the
parents can’t go to work, and
that creates another economic
problem.”

Halls, churches, gyms — even a store — become shelters
SHELTERS FROM A1
vention centers, to churches,
gyms, tiny recreation centers —
even a furniture store.
Officials say more than 30,000
people may be forced from their
homes by Harvey, and many
whose homes have been severely
damaged or destroyed by deadly
winds and astonishing floodwater may need shelter for weeks or
months to come.
By Monday afternoon, about
3,200 people were at the convention center, and a steady stream
of newcomers was arriving in
buses, in trucks, in cars and on
foot.
“People are finding their way
here and coming on in and
getting registered,” said Lloyd
Ziel, a Red Cross official. The
shelter’s capacity is about 5,000,
he said.
As the rescued streamed in,
hundreds of volunteers sorted
through huge piles of donated
clothing, shoes, pet food and
other supplies that were being
dropped off by donors in huge
plastic bags. The Red Cross supplied blankets, towels, toiletries,
water and big tables of food.
Dozens of people gathered
around a large-screen TV to
watch hurricane news.
Elderly people in wheelchairs
and walkers sat quietly or slept,
while scores of children played
with some of the hundreds of
rescued dogs.
A father-son pair dressed in
Batman
costumes
walked
through the crowd, bringing
smiles to faces of people who
looked otherwise dazed, tired
and wet from the slashing rains
still hammering Houston on
Monday.
“I’m so cold,” said Irma Lutes,
71, who tried to warm up under
two white Red Cross blankets in
the air-conditioned hall. “But I’m
happy to be here.”
Fast-rising waters had forced
Lutes, her husband and their son
out of their Houston home and
into their son’s pickup, where
volunteers in a boat rescued
them a couple of hours later. The
rescuers took them to a main
highway where they boarded a
bus that brought them and their
two large dogs to the convention
center.
Lutes said she felt lucky that
she had flood insurance for their
house. But she said it was hard to

in a shelter.
“I have no idea what’s going to
happen next,” she said.
‘It’s safer here’
David McDougle, youth pastor
of First Baptist Church North
Houston, said his house was
about to flood when he got a
phone call from firefighters asking if he could open the church as
a shelter.
McDougle and his wife set up
tables and chairs in the gym, and
the National Guard and sheriff ’s
office began arriving with people
in enormous six-wheeled vehicles.
McDougle told authorities the
gym can safely hold about 150
people, but truckloads of people
kept arriving until there were
between 300 and 350 people
Sunday night.
The McDougles provided water, ramen noodles, canned
soups, beef ravioli, hot dogs,
chicken patties, a few cans of
chili and more.
Monday morning, the floodwater receded, and about 100
people left.
“A lot of people were leaving
because we didn’t have food and
stuff, and we were trying to get
them to stay because it’s safer
here, but they decided to venture
out on their own,” he said.
Donations have been flowing
in since: hot dogs and tortillas
from Walmart, clothing and a
truckload of blankets.
Church food pantry volunteers made potato soup, and they
handed out toiletries that had
been intended for a church mission trip.

up for service as a member of the

he is ready to help his fellow

katy, tex. — As soon as Jordy
Bloodsworth saw the images of
Texans wading through Hurricane Harvey’s gushing floodwaters, he borrowed his buddy’s
brand new Chevy truck, hitched
his 18-foot fishing boat to the back
and took off from his home in
Baton Rouge.
Bloodsworth was just 12 years
old when Hurricane Katrina
dumped 14 feet of water on his
family’s home as the storm surged
over the levee. They lost every
photo, every cent.
What he gained, though, was a
deep motivation to help his brethren in Texas during this week’s
historic deluge.
He’s part of a group that’s
known here as the “Cajun Navy,” a
volunteer online grass-roots effort
that, along with the “Cajun Coast
Search and Rescue Team,” roared
into Pasadena, Tex., on Sunday.
They came in high-clearance pickup trucks with bass boats and
pirogues like the Cajun Cavalry,
ready to help search and rescue
efforts alongside first responders
who were inundated with thousands of calls across the region.
“I was young during Katrina
and I know how it feels to lose
everything,” Bloodsworth said.
“So being able to help others going
through this situation that I have
experienced, there’s no way — no
way — I could pass up helping.”
On Monday morning in Pasadena, which was nearly inaccessible
by road as it sat under deep floodwaters, Bloodsworth said there
were “thousands of people in the
water stuck.” By midday, the flooding had gotten so bad that the
rescuers got stuck, too.
“Some guys had boat troubles
and had to leave their stuff, and we
are saving our own team right
now,” Bloodsworth said in a text.
But they are determined to push
on.
Cajun Navy member Benji Terro, 36, and his cousin Todd Gaspard drove for more than four
hours through flooded areas of
Katy on Monday, helping people
who were floating on air mattresses and in canoes, some of them
Memories of Katrina fuel

such as the Cajun Navy
carrying trash bags stuffed with
changes of clothes and photo albums. He said they had rescued
nearly 40 people so far.
“We’re burning a lot of gas trying to get boots on the ground,”
Terro said. “But when we help
people, well, that’s the point, the
whole thing. This is familiar
ground for us. We are from Louisiana, and we know floods.”
The rescues were often chaotic
— with little organization and
many residents flagging down
help as they waded in the waters.
The Cajun Navy is part of an
armada of private boats that have
descended on the Houston area
after authorities asked for help
from those who could potentially
navigate the treacherous floodwaters across a massive swath of
southeast Texas in search of residents. Many boaters from east
Texas and west Louisiana
streamed to the outskirts of the
disaster until they could drive no
more, switching over to boats to go
door to door seeking out the
stranded.
Painful and haunting memories of Hurricane Katrina run deep
in what’s informally known as the
“Cajun corridor,” between Texas
and Louisiana. During Katrina,
hundreds of Texans did just what
Bloodsworth did, crossed the border and even the Sabine River to
help rescue teams in New Orleans.
Many families in Houston
housed relatives and friends who
were Katrina’s victims, in some
cases for months. Thousands have
now made Houston home.
There are long-standing ethnic
ties, and Cajun families often live
across state lines and are connected by fishing and oil refinery jobs
in both states. Many say these
regions of Texas and Louisiana are
mirror images, with the largely
flat landscape dotted with oil refineries with their mazes of pipes
and tanks and flare stacks burning
high above them like giant torches.
“I vividly remember that many
Texans came to Louisiana’s aid,
which was incredible to me,” said
Taylor Aucoin, who is in Baton
Rouge working with an app, called
Zello, that allows her and her husband to radio in rescue requests to
volunteers on the ground in Texas.
“I can’t really describe the heartbreak that I feel now for Texans.
It’s a very small thing we can do
from here to kind of repay the
favor for the help we received last
year and countless other times.”
The most terrifying call they got
was from a young mom of an
8-week-old baby with breathing
problems. The mother tweeted,
asking for help for a couple hours
with no luck. She then posted that
her newborn was turning blue and
was not breathing. Her phone was
at 2 percent.
“Someone shared the tweets
and I immediately had my husband calling the Coast Guard over
and over,” Aucoin said. Finally, he
got on the Texas Search and Rescue channel on Zello, and they
were able to send out boats and
the Coast Guard. Last she heard,
they were rescued and the baby
was recovering.
Toney Wade, commander of the
volunteer Cajun Coast Search and
Rescue Team, stayed up to 3 a.m.
and was at it again Monday morning. “Tired, but rolling lol,” he texted. “It’s just what we do for each
other.”
Dressed in full hunting camouflage slickers, Todd Gaspard, with
the Cajun Navy, was racing into
floodwaters in the Cinco Ranch
neighborhood of Katy, ready to
assist. He helped out during Rita
and Katrina, at times assisting
with the rescue of cows whose
noses were just sticking out of the
water.
On Monday, he was on his way
to save a woman who had water
“right at her front door fixing to
come in.” Gaspard said helping
people like her this week is just
what he knows.
“Just the way we were brought
up,” he said. “You help your neighbor.”

the night after their single-story
home took on almost a foot of
water. The walk usually takes
five minutes, but it took more
than an hour as the family
trudged through waist-deep
floodwater.
Vazquez said his supervisor
told him to come to the post —
about 30 miles away — when he
can.
He never thought he’d be deployed to his home town.
“I was thinking it was going to
happen to another city, to our
neighboring state Louisiana,
which gets hit pretty hard. But
my home town — didn’t see that
one coming,” he said.
‘This is unprecedented’
In Austin, Red Cross spokes-
woman Bristel Minsker said 300
Harvey evacuees are living in
shelters. More than 45 evacuated
people had taken shelter at a
recreation center in Smithville, a
town of 4,000 people about 50
miles southeast of Austin. Local
residents have been donating
meals and supplies to help them
out.
Floyd Henderson said he had
been awakened early Sunday by
his two teenage daughters and
hopped out of bed into kneedeep water. Harvey’s rain and
runoff swamped the Colorado
River and flooded his neighborhood.
The 44-year-old mechanic began to panic. “I can’t swim,” he
said. “I was freaking out.”
He, his wife, Yvonne, and their
Labor Day Exclusive Sale
daughters waded through the
dark waters to the garage and
climbed into his half-submerged
Cadillac. The car started, and
they were able to drive to safety
through the darkness and deep
water.
Henderson returned to his
street Monday and saw his furniture and Xbox game system
floating in the murky water.
“I don’t know when we can
return,” he said.
Johnny Garcia and his family
were fleeing the flooding in their
home town of Bay City when they
arrived at the Smithville shelter
on Monday. Garcia didn’t want to
leave his home, but, he said, “My
wife kept nagging me, and I gave
in. It’s been 35 years of marriage,
and thank God, I listened to her
this time,” he said.
“I’ve never seen a flood like
this. It came quick,” he said. “We
were prepared, but this is unprecedented.”
In San Antonio, Jude McFarland and his family have been
staying at a shelter on San Antonio’s Southside since Wednesday,
when they left their home in
Corpus Christi ahead of Hurricane Harvey.
When evacuees aren’t watching football on the two TVs set up
in the shelter, they try to catch a
glimpse of their abandoned
homes on the news. McFarland’s
friends were unable to get a look
into the family’s first-floor apartment, but he expects the worst.
This is the McFarlands’ second experience as refugees.
They escaped rising floodwater
in their New Orleans home
during Hurricane Katrina, and
their daughter was born shortly
after.
The couple and their newborn
bounced from shelter to shelter
in the immediate aftermath of
Katrina, then spent a few years in
a FEMA trailer. Finally, subsidized housing opened up in Corpus Christi, and the family
moved there in 2008.
“I thought we were okay, and
now we have to start all over
again,” McFarland said.

HARVEY swamps Texas
Disruptions push up gasoline prices
BY
S TEVEN M UFSON
Hurricane Harvey’s strike at
the heart of the U.S. oil and gas
industry
caused
backups
throughout the petroleum system
on Monday, from storage tanks in
Cushing, Okla., to tankers waiting
for gulf ports to reopen, and set
U.S. gasoline prices soaring to the
highest levels in two years.
The shutdown of about
2.2 million barrels, or 12 percent,
of U.S. refining capacity has driven gasoline prices up as much as
6.8 percent since Friday. Prices
eased off later in the day Monday,
however, finishing up 4.4 percent
and up about 8 percent in the past
week.
Analysts said that the coming
end of the summer driving season
and substantial inventories of
gasoline and diesel would help
dampen any price increase from
Harvey and its aftermath.
Huge disruptions remain. The
massive rainfall has restricted
ship traffic in ports across the
Texas Gulf Coast, from Corpus
Christi to the Sabine Pass, with
further restrictions likely in Louisiana as the storm crawled to the
east. The ports of Lake Charles,
La., and neighboring Port Arthur,
Tex., were closed to inbound traffic Monday, according to the
Coast Guard.
Bloomberg News reported that
14 tankers were in a logjam waiting to deliver crude oil.
The Port of Freeport was losing
some of its water depth as silt
washed from the bay was building up, according to S&P Global
Platts, an analysis firm.
Robert McNally, president of
the Rapidan Group, a consulting
firm, said that the storm brought
to a halt imports of crude oil from
and exports of gasoline to Venezuela, putting more pressure on
the country’s economy and fueling more disarray there.
He noted that the Trump administration has been reluctant
to impose oil sanctions on Venez-

uela. “That debate just got resolved,” McNally said, “and it will
add pressure on Venezuela as
long as this lasts.”
He said that the United States
imports about 700,000 barrels a
day of heavy crude oil from Venezuela and exports about 75,000
barrels a day of refined petroleum
products. Other shipments of refined products with supplies destined for Latin America were also
curtailed.
The storm was also putting a
damper on demand throughout
the Gulf Coast region, and the
closing of refineries and pipelines
in Texas was creating a glut for
pipelines farther north that ordinarily funnel supplies to Gulf
Coast refiners.
Cushing, a pipeline and storage hub, serves as the price point
for the benchmark West Texas
Intermediate-quality
crude.
Amid the pipeline backups, West
Texas Intermediate prices fell
more than 2.5 percent Monday,
while the international benchmark Brent crude had fallen
about 0.8 percent.
The storm also revived a long-
running debate about the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which
holds 679 million barrels of crude
oil in four locations in Texas and
Louisiana. The reserve was created to deal with an embargo by
foreign crude suppliers, in the
wake of the embargo imposed in
the early 1970s by the Arab members of the Organization of the
Petroleum Exporting Countries.
On Monday, the Energy Department said that the largest
SPR storage site, Bryan Mound
near Freeport, Tex., was “drawdown impaired and unavailable,”
according to a Harvey update by
S&P Global Platts. Energy Department spokeswoman Jessica
Szymanski would not comment
on the report.
PIRA Energy’s managing director of global oil, Richard Joswick,
said: “What you need is a gasoline
and diesel SPR, and it has to be in
different regions. You have to
have it when you need it.”
Many analysts have urged the
government
to
add
refined-product inventories in
other parts of the country, such as
the Northeast, which depend
heavily on gasoline and diesel
fuel from the gulf region. The
Colonial pipeline that supplies
much of the northeastern United
States remained open, but analysts were watching that closely
because part of the pipeline begins in waterlogged Houston.
Joswick said that it was still too
early to be certain but that many
oil- and gas-industry operators
had learned from Hurricane Katrina and moved some of their
equipment higher up to guard
against flooding. “What that
means is that it is less likely we’ll
have the month-long outages we
had post-Katrina,” he said.
The Environmental Protection
Agency issued temporary waivers
allowing refiners to use reformulated fuels under the Clear Air Act
to ensure ample supplies of gasoline and diesel. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality asked the EPA for the waivers,
which will go into effect in 30 of
Texas’s 254 counties. The waivers
will last until Sept. 15.
Even as flooding spread, some
companies said they were looking
for ways to restart operations.
Valero, the nation’s largest refiner, said it was looking at ways
to restart the two refineries it
shut down in Corpus Christi. The
company said in an update that it
would seek “to determine the
availability of necessary transportation and logistics infrastructure to resume refinery operations.”
Anadarko Petroleum, a major
independent oil and gas producer, said it had resumed production at its Constitution,
Heidelberg, Holstein and Marco
Polo platforms, all in the central
Gulf of Mexico. The company also
said it is working to restart production at its Lucius facility, farther southwest near Mexican waters.

LUCIAN PERKINS FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
Storm is latest hurdle
for Houston’s migrants
State crackdown on
sanctuary cities is set
to take effect Friday
BY
M ARIA S ACCHETTI
Among the potential victims
of Hurricane Harvey are hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who live in
Houston and other hard-hit
parts of Texas.
The storm is devastating the
region just days before a new
state law cracking down on
sanctuary cities is scheduled to
take effect. Advocates say it
presents an entirely new set of
challenges for a population already reeling from accelerated
state and federal enforcement
of immigration laws.
As the hurricane loomed,
federal authorities and Texas
Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said undocumented
immigrants
should seek shelter from the
storm and rising floodwaters.
In a joint statement, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and
Border Protection said they
would not target undocumented immigrants at evacuation
sites, shelters or food banks,
and would prioritize “lifesaving and life-sustaining activities” during the storm and its
aftermath.
But Oscar Hernandez, a community organizer with United
We Dream in Houston, said he
knew of undocumented immigrants in the Houston area who
were afraid to seek help from
shelters and were bunking with
neighbors instead. Others are
worried about losing their
houses or everything they own
to floods.
“All of us are scared,” Hernandez said.
Houston is the fourth-largest
city in the United States and one
of the most diverse. Its metropolitan area, which includes the
city and surrounding suburbs,
has the third-largest unauthorized immigrant population in
the country, about 575,000 people, according to a report this
year by the Pew Research Center.
Unauthorized immigrants made
up 8.7 percent of the metro
area’s population as of 2014,
more than double the national
average.
Advocates say Texas’s looming crackdown on illegal immigration has already driven
many of those immigrants further into the shadows, and
possibly, out of the state.
On Friday, Texas will officially outlaw sanctuary cities,
threatening local police chiefs
with jail time and city officials
with losing their jobs if they do
not help deport immigrants.
The new law is being challenged in court by Houston and
a number of other cities and
localities.
Texas is also leading a coalition of GOP officials in 10 states
threatening to sue President
Trump if he doesn’t act by Sept.
5 to start phasing out the
Obama-era Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals program,
which has granted reprieves
from deportation to nearly
800,000 undocumented immigrants.
Hernandez, who has DACA
protection, said many immigrant families in Texas fear increased racial profiling, detentions and deportations in the
state once the sanctuary law
takes effect.
“As concerned as everyone is
about the hurricane, we have
another disaster that’s heading
our way, led by the government, led by Trump,” said Hernandez, 29, who came to the
United States from Puebla,
Mexico, when he was 2 years
old.
“People are leaving the
state already. Who’s
going to clean up
the mess?”
Eduardo Canales, director of the
South Texas Human Rights Center,
speaking of low-wage workers
Eduardo Canales, director of
the South Texas Human Rights
Center, said the state is at risk
of losing much-needed lowwage workers — cleaners,
cooks, carpenters and landscapers — who because of the
crackdown may not stick
around to help Texas communities recover from the storm.
“People are leaving the state
already. Who’s going to clean
up the mess?” Canales said in a
phone interview from his
home in Corpus Christi. “All
the landscaping, all the work
that they do. All that service
work. . . . There’s going to be a
lot of remodeling and a lot of
work and somebody’s gotta do
it.”
Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, said Texas business
and church leaders were already worried about losing
workers before the hurricane
struck.
“Things are really piling up
for the immigrant community in
Texas in a bad way,” Noorani
said. “It’s hard to tell exactly
how many people are going to be
displaced, but I think already
the Houston workforce is so
immigrant-driven, that to rebuild the city of Houston is
going to need the contributions
of everybody.”
The undocumented workforce in Texas is 1.15 million. Of
those, 32 percent work in hotels, restaurants and other
service industries and 23 percent work in construction, according to Mark Hugo Lopez,
director of Hispanic research at
the Pew Research Center.

Pleas for rescue surge out on social media, and private citizens respond
BY
P ETER H OLLEY
Desperate messages and horrifying photos have been spreading
across social media since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in
Houston.
There was the mother trapped
on her roof with five children who
were “running out of time,” and the
pregnant woman who was in labor
and unable to reach police. A photo
from Houston’s northeast side
showed four children asleep on a
counter in a flooded kitchen, including a little girl reportedly on a
ventilator. “Still trying to get a water rescue,” the message said.
“Please send some help quick.”
Each heartbreaking story —
shared widely on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as floodwaters
swelled — offered some variation of
the same message as Harvey, now a
tropical storm, unleashed chaos
across Houston:
“Here's my address — please
send help!”
When social media was in its
infancy, Americans watched in
horror as Hurricane Katrina inundated New Orleans, marooning
residents on rooftops, where they
helplessly waved white sheets and
held up signs for passing helicopters, often to no avail. Twelve years,
several smartphone releases and
billions of tweets later, as a powerful storm hovered over America’s
fourth-largest metropolis — social
media allowed many Houstonians
to take their fate into their own
hands. Using social media, flood
victims who still had power were
able to communicate with public
officials directly or to bypass them
entirely and coordinate their own
rescues with private citizens.
With floodwaters trapping people in homes and emergency phone
lines overwhelmed, many had no
option but to post a plea online and
hope it was received by a heroic
stranger. In the process, thousands
of Texans offered the world a window into their gripping struggle for
survival and the latest example of
the evolving role that social media
can play in large-scale disasters.
Between Saturday night and
Sunday morning, Twitter accounts
normally reserved for photos of
kids, dinner recipes and celebrity
gossip were suddenly transformed
into lifelines capturing people’s efforts to stay alive.
“I have 2 children with me and the
water is swallowing us up,” Maritza
Willis tweeted in the early morning
hours Sunday, along with her address. “911 is not responding!!!!!!”
A little over an hour later, she
had been saved.
Many of the city’s local celebrities with hundreds of thousands of
followers — such as rappers Paul
Wall and Kirko Bangz — tried reposting pleas for help on their social-media feeds in hopes of drawing rescuers’ attention, a tactic
known as a “signal boost.” The most
wrenching posts spread across
Houstonians’ social-media pages,
where people offered prayers and

Christi, Tex., where she took refuge. She felt the hotel was safer than her home.
asked for updates. Social-media users typically keep their addresses,
phone numbers and intimate family details hidden from public view,
but the brutality of the storm suspended those rules.
John Nova Lomax, a Houston
resident and senior editor at Texas
Monthly who has written exten-
sively about the city's flood problems, said he noticed a Facebook
post Sunday asking for someone to
rescue a woman trapped on her
roof with two dogs. The victim’s
address was less than a half-mile
away, he said, leading him to embark on a hapless rescue effort that
ended when he reached an impass-
able bridge several blocks from his
house in northwest Houston.
Although his failed attempt, he
said that social media spawned numerous successful rescue efforts,
often through Facebook groups
that formed to share information
and facilitate rescues.
The Facebook group “Hurricane
Harvey Helping Hands” has multiple examples of homegrown rescuers posting photos of their boats
and trucks along with their phone
numbers. Even police have used
social media to ask boat owners to
help authorities with rescues.
“The government can only do so
much for a city of 7 million people,”
Lomax said. “We have a lot of outdoorsy people down here and a lot
of people with boats and lifted
trucks, and there's a Texas machismo here that says, ‘I’m not going to
wait, I’m going to get out there and
help people myself!’
“The difference with social media this time around is that it allows someone to pinpoint where
the victims are,” he added. “It’s actually helping.”
In many cases, those seeking
help were the city’s most vulnerable — children, the elderly and the
infirm. Houston Police Chief Art
Acevedo instructed residents to
continue using official channels to
ask for help, but many of those
calling for help on social media
complained they couldn’t get
through normal channels as floodwaters swept across Southeast Texas. In some cases, however, Websavvy officials responded to victims
almost immediately.
There’s no official tally of how
many people were saved this weekend because of social media.
But city officials said Monday
that at least 2,000 people have been
rescued.

Trump Organization executive sought help from Putin aide on real estate deal
RUSSIA FROM A1
individuals. I thank you in advance for your assistance and
look forward to hearing from you
soon,” Cohen wrote.
Cohen’s email marks the most
direct outreach documented by a
top Trump aide to a similarly senior member of Putin’s government.
Cohen told congressional investigators in a statement Monday
that he did not recall receiving a
response from Peskov or having
further contact with Russian government officials about the project. The email, addressed to Peskov, appeared to have been sent to a
general Kremlin press account.
The note adds to the list of
contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials that
have been a focus of multiple congressional inquiries as well as an
investigation led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III exploring
Russian interference in the 2016
election. U.S. intelligence agencies
have concluded that the Kremlin
intervened to help elect Trump.
Cohen’s email to Peskov provides an example of a Trump business official directly seeking
Kremlin assistance in advancing
Trump’s business interests.
Cohen told congressional investigators that the deal was envisioned as a licensing project, in
which Trump would have been
paid for the use of his name by a
Moscow-based developer called
I.C. Expert Investment Co.
Cohen said that he discussed
the deal three times with Trump
and that Trump signed a letter of
intent with the company on Oct.
28, 2015. He said the Trump company began to solicit designs from
architects and discuss financing.
However, he said that the project was abandoned “for business
reasons” when government permission was not secured and that
the matter was “not related in any
way to Mr. Trump’s presidential
campaign.”
Cohen’s request to Peskov came
as Trump was distinguishing himself on the campaign trail with his
warm rhetoric about Putin.
Cohen said in his statement to
Congress that he wrote the email
at the recommendation of Felix
Sater, a Russian American businessman who was serving as a
broker on the deal.
In the statement, obtained by
The Washington Post, Cohen said
Sater suggested the outreach because a massive Trump development in Moscow would require
Russian government approval.
White House special counsel
Ty Cobb said Trump knew nothing about Cohen’s effort to enlist
Peskov’s help.
“The mere fact that there was
no apparent response suggests
this is a non-collusion story,” he
said.
Cohen has been one of Trump’s
closest aides since 2007, serving
as a business emissary, lawyer
and sometimes spokesman for
Trump. Friends said Trump has
treated Cohen like a member of
his family.
Cohen, who was executive vice
president of the Trump Organization, did not have a formal role in
Trump’s campaign. But he spoke
with reporters as a defender of
Trump and appeared on television
as a surrogate for the candidate.
He left the company shortly before
Trump was inaugurated as president, and, since January, has
served as one of Trump’s personal
lawyers.
In a statement to The Post, Cohen described the potential Moscow project as “simply one of
many development opportunities
that the Trump Organization considered and ultimately rejected.”
“It should come as no surprise
that, over four decades, the
Trump Organization has received
and reviewed countless real estate development opportunities,
both domestic and international,” he added.
Cohen said he abandoned the
project because he lost confidence that the Moscow developer
would be able to obtain land,
financing and government approvals. “It was a building proposal that did not succeed, and
nothing more,” he said.
The Post reported Sunday that
Cohen had been in negotiations
with Sater and foreign investors
to build a Trump Tower in the
Russian capital from September
2015 through the end of January
2016, at the same time Trump was
campaigning for president.
Trump entered the race in June
2015, and by January 2016 he was
leading in the polls for the Republican nomination.
Cohen told congressional investigators that Sater “constant-

Michael Cohen’s email regarding a Trump Organization project in Moscow marks the most direct

ly” pushed him to travel to Moscow as part of the negotiations,
but that he declined to do so.
He said that Sater, who has
attempted to broker Trump deals
for more than a decade, was
“prone to ‘salesmanship,’ ” and
that, as a result, he did not rou-
this project,” Sater said.
Over email, Sater bragged to
Cohen that he could get Putin to
assist with the project and that it
would help Trump’s presidential
campaign, according to correspondence submitted to congressional investigators.
“If you’re looking for someone who is close to
Putin, Dmitry Peskov is as good as any of them.”
Steven L. Hall, who retired from the CIA in 2015 after 30 years
of managing the agency’s Russia operations
tinely apprise others in the company about their interactions and
never considered asking Trump
to go to Moscow, as Sater had
requested.
Sater said in a statement Monday that he brought the idea of
the largest tower in Russia to
Cohen, his longtime friend. Despite Sater’s enthusiasm for the
plan, he said, the Trump Organization abandoned it.
“Michael Cohen was the only
member of the Trump Organization who I communicated with on
“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Sater wrote in a November 2015 email. “I will get all of
Putins team to buy in on this, I
will manage this process.”
The Post on Sunday first reported on the existence of the
emails, copies of which were published Monday by the New York
Times.
In another email published by
the Times, and confirmed by The
Post, Sater described accompanying Trump’s daughter Ivanka
Trump on a 2006 trip to Moscow.
“I arranged for Ivanka to sit in
Putins private chair at his desk
and office in the Kremlin,” Sater
wrote.
Ivanka Trump said she had taken a “brief tour” of the Kremlin but
did not recall sitting in Putin’s chair.
She added, “I was not part of
Michael Cohen’s discussions surrounding a potential Trump project that he was evaluating in 2015
in Russia with the exception of
recommending architects to consider as part of the routine design
process for any potential deal.”
Donald Trump has tried to distance himself from Sater, a New
York developer whose office was
located in Trump Tower and who
helped broker licensed Trump
deals. Sater had served time in jail
in the 1990s after a bar fight and
pleaded guilty in 1998 to his role in
Mafia-linked stock fraud. Federal
officials have said he then cooperated on various national security
and criminal investigations.
In writing to Peskov, Cohen
was reaching out to a Kremlin
official considered one of the
main gatekeepers to Putin.
Peskov was appointed the head
of the presidential press service in
2000, during Putin’s first term, and
has served as a spokesman for Putin in various roles since, staying
with Putin during his four years as
prime minister. Because he regularly travels with and speaks to
Putin, he is a target for lobbyists
and petitioners trying to attract
the Russian president’s attention.
“Aside from being the Kremlin’s
mouthpiece, he’s definitely someone who is viewed as a senior
lieutenant, an important oligarch
in Putin’s power system,” said Steven L. Hall, who retired from the
CIA in 2015 after 30 years of managing the agency’s Russia operations. “If you’re looking for someone who is close to Putin, Dmitry
Peskov is as good as any of them.”
Asked for comment about the
Trump Tower negotiations,
Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman
for the Trump Organization, emphasized Monday that Cohen did
not pursue the deal beyond its
initial stages. “After the signing of
a non-binding letter of intent . . .
it was not significantly advanced
(i.e., there was no site, no financing, and no development),” she
wrote in an email to The Post. “To
be clear, the Trump Organization
has never had any real estate
holdings or interests in Russia.”
Still, Trump repeatedly tried for
three decades to build in Russia.
In 2013, he signed a preliminary
agreement to build a tower in
partnership with Aras Agalarov, a
billionaire who had financed the
Trump-owned Miss Universe pageant when it was held in Moscow
in 2013. Agalarov told The Post last
year that his company’s deal with
Trump was on hold because of the
presidential campaign.
A representative of Agalarov’s
company attended a June 2016
meeting with top Trump aides and
a Russian lawyer organized by Donald Trump Jr., after he was told that
the lawyer would provide damaging information about Democratic
rival Hillary Clinton provided by
the Russian government.
Scott Balber, an attorney for
Agalarov, said Agalarov and his
company played no role in the
2015-16 Trump Tower proposal.

Venezuela’s defiant violinist
The 23-year-old, a symbol of opposition to Maduro’s authoritarian government, plays on despite tear gas and detention
BY R ACHELLE K RYGIER
AND A NTHONY F AIOLA
caracas, venezuela — On the
streets of this tense capital, protesters challenging government
troops often throw rocks, bottles,
even molotov cocktails. But Wuilly
Arteaga battled riot police with
the defiant strains of his violin.
A fixture on the front lines in
recent months, playing on despite
stinging volleys of tear gas, the
23-year-old became a symbol of
the opposition to President Nicolás Maduro’s authoritarian government. Videos of Arteaga concentrating on his music amid
scenes of chaos quickly went viral
and were shared in Venezuela to
boost morale among the protesters.
They also made him a target.
During a demonstration last
month in eastern Caracas, as
Arteaga played a song called “Soul
of the Plains,” Maduro’s national
guard swooped down on him. His
story provides a window on the
tactics of a government that has
allegedly used intimidation, torture and propaganda to cement its
power.
“Imprisoning him was the government’s way of trampling the
opposition and punching its dignity, of showing that they’re willing to detain and torture one of its
most emblematic symbols of
peaceful resistance,” said Alfredo
Romero, executive director of the
legal activist group Foro Penal, or
Penal Forum, and Arteaga’s attorney.
The slight, copper-skinned violinist is among the ranks of perhaps the least likely of Venezuela’s
protesters — a band of classically
trained musicians who have provided the soundtrack for the country’s opposition movement.
At least one has paid with his
life.
The latest uprising against Maduro — the anointed successor of
Hugo Chávez, who died in 2013 —
dates to April, but the movement
has wilted in recent weeks following the government’s creation of a
new super congress. The allpowerful body, stocked with Maduro loyalists, including his wife
and son, was mandated by a
July 30 referendum that was internationally condemned as fraudulent. Since then, it has moved
swiftly against government opponents, launching what it calls
a truth commission that critics
fear will be used to silence dissent.
In the weeks before the vote,
dozens of young musicians took to
the streets, some with their instruments. Gian Cientorame, a 25year-old percussionist, was detained with Arteaga and freed the
next day. Francisco Gamboa, who
plays viola, spent 27 days detained
before being freed this month.
In early May, another viola player, Armando Cañizales, 17, was
killed during a protest.
“He was a rebel, like every
young person, and just wanted a
better country,” Cañizales’s high
school professor Pedro Sevillano
told the Venezuelan website Runrun.es. “He was nice, and studious
. . . He was going to study medicine at the Central University of
Venezuela.”
Like Arteaga, most of the rebel
musicians were trained through

the Simón Bolívar Musical Foundation, better known locally as El
Sistema — a state-sponsored music education program that
dates to the 1970s and has earned
international recognition for creating opportunities for poor
youths. The program predates
Chávez, but he latched onto it,
promoting it abroad as evidence
that his socialist-tinged “Bolivarian revolution” could feed minds as
well as mouths.
The musical director of El
Sistema’s main orchestra, renowned conductor Gustavo Dudamel, had long avoided the subject of politics. But a day after
Cañizales was killed, Dudamel
tweeted a video of himself denouncing government tactics.
“I raise my voice against violence and repression,” he said. “No
one can justify the spilling of
blood. It’s time to stop ignoring
the just call of the people who are
being suffocated by an intolerable
crisis.”
Dudamel published a July 19
opinion piece in the New York
Times in which he railed against
the new Constituent Assembly.
The government appeared to respond by canceling an El Sistema
orchestra tour of the United
States. Maduro also lashed out at
Dudamel, who heads the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
“Welcome to politics, Gustavo
Dudamel,” Maduro said on national television. He added: “I
hope God forgives you.”
Arteaga grew up in a poor family, living in an aluminum-roofed
house in Valencia, about 81 miles
from Caracas. He bought his first
violin with money he earned
working at a cybercafe, initially
learning how to play by watching
YouTube videos. When he was 19,
he ran away from his strictly religious home, where he wasn’t permitted to play.
He arrived in Caracas in 2015

Arteaga speaks at a news conference in Caracas after his release
from 19 days of detention. He says guards beat him and hit him on
the head with his violin, damaging his hearing.
and lived off street performances.
For two years, he also studied at El
Sistema and played with a government orchestra.
“I was obliged to play in ceremonies with Maduro and to sign
things supporting the president,”
he said in an interview this month.
“I rebelled against that. Eventually I left.”
After Cañizales’s death, Arteaga
played at the teenager’s funeral.
Within days, he was back on the
streets with his violin.
Among Arteaga’s most-viewed
videos is one of him in late May
crying after government troops
broke his violin during a protest. It
captivated the Spanish-speaking
world, leading several people, including celebrity salsa singer
Marc Anthony, to send him new
violins.
His girlfriend, 21-year-old
Hazel Pinto, has played her clarinet alongside Arteaga at demonstrations since May.
“With music, he encourages
people, even me, to keep pushing
back,” she said. “I can’t explain
how, but despite the effects of tear
gas, I can keep blowing air into my
clarinet.”
In mid-August, after spending
19 days in a military detention
facility in western Caracas, Arteaga was released.
During his captivity, he said, he
slept on the floor in an unventilated room with about 15 other prisoners. Guards hit him on the head
with his violin, destroying it. That
and other beatings, he said, damaged his hearing in one ear.
Guards, he added, taunted him
and burned his hair with a lighter.
The night after his release, Diosdado Cabello, a senior member
of Maduro’s inner circle, released
a video on national television. In
it, Arteaga denies he was mistreat-
ed in jail, attacks the media and
insists guards never broke his violin.
“You remember that violinist,
what’s his name?” Cabello said on
national TV, pretending to play
the violin. Before unveiling the
video, he adds: “Let’s see what
Wuilly says. It’s good to listen to
the other side.”
The next day, Arteaga responded in the local media, calling the
video a doctored montage of unrelated and coerced answers.
“It mixes answers,” he said. “I
was tortured, prisoners are tortured, and they did destroy my
violin.”
Tarek William Saab, Maduro’s
newly named chief prosecutor,
did not respond to requests for
comment.
Arteaga said he fears for the
future of the opposition, which
has largely failed to mobilize major demonstrations in recent
weeks. Protesters have also shown
signs of losing faith in opposition
leaders, who are at odds
over strategy.
“I feel lost and out of place,”
Arteaga said. “How is it possible
that so many prisoners are in jail
and being tortured, and here in
the streets, it feels like nothing is
happening?”
His release from jail is conditional on his reporting to a tribunal every eight days and staying
away from protests. But Arteaga
remains defiant.
“I will keep bringing my music
to wherever is necessary for Venezuela’s freedom, be it in the
streets or the squares, because my
music has united many Venezuelans,” he said. “And I hope it will
keep doing it.”

Faiola reported from Miami.
convicted of killing patients in
Germany with overdoses of heart
medication is now believed to
have killed at least 86 people —
and the true scale of the killings
could be even larger, investigators said Monday.
Many of the deaths could have
been prevented if health authorities had acted more quickly on
their suspicions, said Johann
Kühme, police chief in the northwestern city of Oldenburg.
Niels Högel, now 40, was convicted in 2015 of two murders and
two attempted murders at a hospital in the northwestern town of
Delmenhorst. He was sentenced
to life in prison. But prosecutors
have long said that they think he
killed many more people. Last
year they put the figure at 43, at
least.
The crimes came to light after
Högel was convicted of attempted murder in another case. Authorities subsequently investigated hundreds of deaths, exhuming bodies of former patients in Delmenhorst and
nearby Oldenburg.
Kühme said Monday that authorities have now unearthed
evidence of 84 killings in addition to the ones for which Högel
was convicted. The actual number is probably higher because
some possible victims were cremated, making it impossible to
gather evidence, Kühme added.
The fact that the cases go back
many years and people may
struggle to remember the exact
details of their loved ones’ deaths
hurts authorities’ ability to determine a precise number, Kühme said.
He accused local health authorities of being slow to act.
“If the people responsible at
the time, particularly at the Oldenburg clinic but also later in
Delmenhorst, hadn’t hesitated to
alert authorities,” Kühme said,
Högel could have been stopped
earlier.
Authorities are pursuing criminal cases against former staff
members at the two facilities.
Högel worked at the Oldenburg hospital from 1999 to 2002
and in Delmenhorst from 2003
to 2005.
Kühme said other medical
workers at Oldenburg were aware
of an elevated number of resuscitations, and initial indications of
possible wrongdoing by the nurse
in Delmenhorst emerged as early
as April 2003.
During his trial, Högel said he
intentionally brought about cardiac crises in about 90 patients in
Delmenhorst because he enjoyed
being able to resuscitate them.
He later told investigators that
he also killed patients in Oldenburg.
Prosecutors are expected to try
Högel in at least some of the
additional killings, but Germany’s judicial system does not
allow for consecutive sentences,
so future convictions would not
affect his life term.

2 Americans in prison
reportedly lose appeal
An Iranian American
businessman and his father, both
serving 10-year prison sentences
in Iran over their ties to the
United States, have lost a court
appeal, a lawyer said Monday.
Siamak Namazi and his 81year-old father, Baquer, who are
among several dual nationals
detained in Iran, learned Sunday
that the Tehran appellate court
denied their appeal, Washingtonbased lawyer Jared Genser said.
The court’s decision comes as
both men suffer health problems
related to their incarceration at
Tehran’s notorious Evin prison,
Genser said.
The Namazi family fled Iran
after the 1979 Islamic revolution.
Siamak Namazi later traveled back
several times and wrote articles
calling for improved ties between
Iran and the United States.
Those efforts raised suspicions
among Iranian hard-liners, who
accused him of being part of a
Western effort to infiltrate Iran.
Siamak Namazi was arrested in
October 2015. His father,
apparently drawn to Iran over
fears about his son, was arrested
in February 2016.

Plastic-bag ban carries
prison term, hefty fines
A ban on plastic bags came
into force Monday in Kenya,
and those found violating the
regulation could receive
maximum fines of $38,000 or
a four-year jail term.
The ban applies to the use,
manufacture and importation of
plastic shopping bags and
imposes a minimum fine of about
$19,000 or up to a year in prison,
according to the government.
Exemptions were made for
manufacturers producing plastic
bags for industrial use.
Similar bans have been
implemented in other African
countries.
Activist Boniface Mwangi has
appealed to the Kenyan
government to reduce the
penalties, saying they are overly
punitive and will mainly affect
poor citizens who cannot afford to
bribe their way to freedom.

BURMA
1,000 Rohingya storm
Bangladesh border
About 1,000 ethnic Rohingya
villagers from Burma forced their
way Monday into Bangladesh
after coming under fire in fallout
from violence unleashed last
week when Rohingya insurgents
attacked police posts in Burma’s
western Rakhine state.
The Muslim villagers, seeking
refuge from the violence in
Buddhist-majority Burma, had
been in a border no man’s land for
two days. Bangladeshi border
guards on Monday sought to push
them back to Burma.
A Bangladeshi local
government representative said
that when Burmese troops fired
their guns, the crowd ran back
and broke through a Bangladeshi
barricade and cordon. He said
they then scattered, with at least
some making it to unofficial
camps for unregistered refugees.
Rohingya leaders and
intelligence officials said 8,000
to 9,000 Rohingya have entered
Bangladesh since the violence
broke out Thursday. Human
rights groups say the army
retaliated by burning down
villages and shooting civilians,
forcing thousands to flee.
The Rohingya have long faced
discrimination in Burma, where
the government refuses to
recognize them as a legitimate
native ethnic minority.

China, India back off
African, European leaders craft migration deal
from dispute over road
Centers will screen
After months of threats,
both withdraw forces
from contested border
BY S IMON D ENYER
AND A NNIE G OWEN
beijing — India and China have
withdrawn troops from a disputed Himalayan region on their
border, foreign ministries from
the two countries announced
Monday, defusing a tense standoff that had threatened to provoke armed conflict between the
nuclear-armed Asian rivals.
For the past two months, Indian and Chinese troops had faced
off on a plateau in the Doklam
area in the Himalayas after Indian troops moved in to prevent
the Chinese military from building a road into territory claimed
by India’s close ally Bhutan.
On Monday, the two sides
announced they had reached an
agreement, with India saying its
troops were disengaging and
China saying it would redeploy
forces in response. By the evening, India said both sides had
almost completed their withdrawals.
China said it would continue
to patrol and garrison the area
and to exercise its sovereign
rights.
Neither side was willing to
admit to having backed down.
“We remind India to learn the
lessons from this incident, tangibly abide by the historical treaties and the basic principles of
international law, and to meet
China halfway, jointly guard the
peace and tranquility of the border areas, and promote a healthy
development of bilateral military
relations,” Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said in
a statement.
India said it had insisted on
resolving the dispute through
diplomatic channels. “Our principled position is that agreements and understandings
reached on boundary issues
must be scrupulously respected,”
the Ministry of External Affairs
said.
An Indian foreign ministry
official also told the Associated
Press that the two sides had
agreed to return to the “status
quo.” The cable news channel
NDTV reported that Chinese
bulldozers had been moved away,
and road construction stopped,
according to its sources — implying that India’s demand had been
met.
Beijing also wanted to resolve
the dispute ahead of a meeting
scheduled to take place in China
this weekend of heads of state
from the “BRICS” countries —
Brazil, Russia, India, China and
South Africa.
“It’s hugely good news,” said
Wang Dehua, an Indian-studies
expert at the Shanghai Institute
for International Studies.
He said China would try to
address India’s security concerns
when Prime Minister Narendra
Modi visits for the summit but
would continue building roads in
border areas.
Mao Siwei, former Chinese
consul general in the Indian city
of Kolkata, said the statements
were deliberately “vague” because of the sensitivity of the
issue and the reluctance of either
side to show weakness: “Judging
from experience and common
sense, I guess both sides have
come to the following agreement: Firstly, on principle, China
would stop its road building, and
India would withdraw its troops.
Secondly, regarding the timing,
India would withdraw first and
China would withdraw later.”
The tiny Himalayan kingdom
of Bhutan was inadvertently
swept into the dispute when
Indian soldiers moved from a
nearby garrison into territory
Bhutan contests with China, to
block a road-building crew from
China’s People’s Liberation
Army.
Bhutan’s government was
careful not to make comments
and inflame tensions; aside from
one brief statement from its foreign ministry, it maintained a
calculated silence throughout
the dispute.

asylum seekers in
exchange for financial aid
AND
BY J AMES M C A ULEY
I SAAC S TANLEY- B ECKER
paris — More than 1.5 million
migrants have surged into Europe since 2015. Now European
leaders and their African counterparts are working to stop the
next mass migration before it
starts.
In Paris on Monday, the leaders of France, Germany, Italy and
Spain met with the presidents of
Niger and Chad — as well as
Fayez Serraj, the head of Libya’s
unity government. They agreed
on a policy of registering “vulnerable” migrants at reception centers in Africa before they can
seek asylum in Europe.
The war in Syria and conflict
and poverty across Africa have
caused a surge in migration over
the past several years, prompting migrants and asylum seekers
to pour into Europe, including
along the deadly central Mediterranean route. To curb the
flow, European leaders such as
French President Emmanuel
Macron and German Chancellor
Angela Merkel have long called
for increased screening in Africa. In return, they have promised
their African partners significant developmental aid.
Monday’s summit was a victory of sorts for European leaders,
who pushed for guarantees on
tightened African border checks,
increased Libyan patrols in the
Mediterranean, and a crackdown
on aid groups that carry out
water rescues, which governments say enable traffickers to
continue dangerous smuggling
practices.
But migration advocates were
quick to reiterate the problems
with what they consider a deeply
flawed bargain.
The developmental aid Europe has promised, they say, can
amount to funneling money to
repressive regimes.
“It’s out of sight, out of mind,”
said Sophia Wirsching, a migration consultant for Bread for the
World, a Protestant aid organization in Germany. “Europe is

attempting to shift its duty to
countries that are not capable or
willing to take on the responsibility for refugees.”
The migration issue continues
to inflame domestic politics
across the continent — and perhaps nowhere more so than
Germany.
influx of asylum seekers was a
one-time deal.
Earlier in the summer, Macron
proposed a network of “hot
spots” in Libya, where migrants
would be evaluated for asylum
before making the journey.
Those deemed to be economic
migrants would be turned back.
Migration advocates were quick
to reiterate the problems with what they
consider a deeply flawed bargain.
There, finding ways to address
forced migration beyond Europe’s borders has taken on new
urgency several weeks before a
federal election that is serving as
a referendum on Merkel and her
decision two years ago not to
close Germany’s borders to about
a million migrants fleeing the
Syrian war.
Polls show the long-serving,
center-right leader with a comfortable advantage as she works
to assure voters that the rapid

The notion was harpooned by
Human Rights Watch and prominent European humanitarian
groups.
But some political analysts
insist that implementing refugee
processing on the African side of
the Mediterranean is a necessary
step.
“You can be critical of hot

clear how they would work, but
the reality is, the idea is not all
that different from what we

decided with Turkey last year,”
said Pierre Vimont, a former
French ambassador to the European Union, referring to the deal
between the E.U. and Turkey to
stem the flow of migrants into
Greece.
Monday’s summit also addressed a proposed code of conduct for aid groups, some of
which have been accused of performing rescues that enable
smugglers to continue dangerous journeys across the Mediterranean.
Many aid groups reject those
charges.
“Basically, the accusations
we’ve heard about NGOs, that we
are somehow helping the traffickers, are vastly ill-conceived,”
said Bruno Jochum, director
general of Doctors Without Borders.
“It’s part of a general strategy
to stop the coming flow at whatever cost,” he said. “Today, European states are accommodating
themselves and pushing people
back into situations of generalized mistreatment.”

Customers shop at a Whole Foods store in New York on Monday, the first day that Amazon.com made changes to the upscale grocery chain.
“This isn’t about groceries anymore. It’s about pulling people into the Amazon ecosystem,” said Stephen Beck, owner of a consulting firm.
Day One of Amazon-run Whole Foods
Online retailer begins lowering prices, promoting its Echo devices at the newly acquired grocery chain
BY
A BHA B HATTARAI
Among the first changes Amazon.com made Monday as the
new owner of Whole Foods was its
unconventional addition to the
chain’s produce section: piles of
Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices.
They were, according to signs,
“farm fresh!”
And so began Amazon’s takeover of Whole Foods, which gives
it a 2 percent share of the
$600 billion-a-year American
grocery market. Signs around the
store proclaimed, “This is just the
beginning.”
The beginning, Amazon announced last week, would mostly
mean lower prices on a few dozen
food items, including fish, meat,
produce and canned goods. In
Washington,
the
discounts
ranged from about 6 percent on
rotisserie half-chickens to 33 percent on organic apples. Avocados
were marked down to $1.49 each
(a 26 percent discount), while
New York strip steaks were discounted to $13.99 per pound
(down 18 percent). (Jeffrey P. Bezos, the founder and chief executive of Amazon, owns The Washington Post.)
“We’re determined to make
healthy and organic food affordable for everyone,” Jeff Wilke,
chief executive of Amazon Worldwide Consumer, said last week.
“Everybody should be able to eat
Whole Foods Market quality — we
will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market’s
long-held commitment to the
highest standards.”
But shoppers on Monday said
they didn’t care — or hadn’t noticed — that the chain had made
an effort to lower prices. They
expected to pay more at Whole
Foods — it has, after all, earned
the nickname “Whole Paycheck”
— but said they shopped there
anyway, out of convenience, habit
or preference.
Dragan Jakovljev stops by the
Whole Foods in Logan Circle
nearly every day.
“The prices are higher, for
sure,” he said, “but I like the
vegetables here.”
On Monday, he sat outside eating eggs and sausage and said
things looked a bit different inside the store.
“You can see signs that Amazon
is taking over,” he said of the Echo
display. “I’m not low-tech or anything, but that was definitely a
little strange.”
The cross-promotions and lower prices, analysts said, were just
one part of Amazon’s effort to
expand its reach.
Whole Foods’ prices have run
about 15 percent higher than at
the average grocery store, according to Morgan Stanley. By immediately cutting prices, analysts
say, Amazon is sending a signal
that sweeping changes are in
store, even if it means temporarily cutting into profit margins.
And, it was a message to the
grocery sector that Amazon has
arrived.
“This was a shot across the bow
to the industry rather than to the
consumer,” said Mark Cohen, director of retail studies at Columbia Business School. “They are
creating an opportunity to crossmarket, but more than that, they
are leaving the grocery world
shaking in its boots.”
There is significant overlap between the customers of the two
companies. Analysts estimate
that about 70 percent of Whole
Foods customers are also Amazon
Prime members. The online retailer’s loyalty program, which
has an annual fee of $99, offers
perks including free two-day
shipping, video streaming, and
discounts on recurring purchases
of household goods and diapers.
“One day in, existing Whole
Foods customers may shrug their
shoulders, but this is really a longterm play,” said Stephen Beck,
who owns a management consulting firm in New York. “This
isn’t about groceries anymore. It’s
about pulling people into the
Amazon ecosystem. All the signs
in the store are saying, ‘Look at
what Amazon’s doing for you.’ ”
The company has begun selling
Whole Foods’ private-label products — including 365 Everyday
Value, Whole Paws and Whole
Catch — online and is in the
process of combining the two
companies’ computer systems.
Eventually, Amazon Prime members will receive exclusive discounts at Whole Foods.
News of the impending deal
rattled the grocery industry,
which was already struggling to
keep up with growing competition. Although Whole Foods remains a niche chain — Walmart
and Sam’s Club, by comparison,
have 10 times as many stores —
analysts say an Amazon-backed
grocer could have broad implications on pricing and profits.
Shares of competitors’ stocks
continued to tumble Monday,
with shares of Sprouts Farmers
Market falling nearly 7 percent
and Supervalu down about 3 percent. Kroger and Target were
down about 1 percent.
The purchase — Amazon’s largest — also intensifies the brewing
battle between the tech giant and
its largest competitor, Walmart,
which sells nearly $200 billion of
groceries each year. Last week,
Walmart announced it would
soon allow shoppers to buy its
products by speaking to their
Google Home devices, seen as a
move to compete with Amazon’s
Alexa, a virtual assistant used
with Echo and other devices.
But at a Whole Foods on Monday morning, shopper Beverly
Marshall wasn’t impressed with
the changes. In fact, she said, she
hadn’t even noticed them.
“Nothing stood out to me,” she
said as she walked out of the store
with bags of vegetables, nuts and
cashew milk. “Everything was
still way too expensive.”
A few yards away, Roberto Martinez agreed.
“No difference,” the 34-year-old
said as he ate breakfast. “I mean, I
paid $13 for this oatmeal.”

the choice of Expedia CEO Dara
Khosrowshahi to lead Uber may
seem a little odd.
The 48-year-old chief executive,
who was born in Iran and moved
to the United States in 1978 to flee
the Iranian Revolution, does not
live in Silicon Valley. He lives in
Bellevue, Wash., where Expedia is
headquartered.
The two businesses appear to
have little in common. Like Uber,
online travel giant Expedia is a
data-driven marketplace that
links sellers to consumers who are
on the move — but the connections pretty much stop there.
Yet Khosrowshahi has deep ties
to Silicon Valley, many of them
through his family. Indeed, Khosrowshahi may have one of the
most extensive family networks of
anyone working in the technology
industry — six of his relatives are
highly successful Silicon Valley
entrepreneurs or executives with
strong ties to tech.
His brother Kaveh Khosrowshahi is managing director of Allen & Co., the influential boutique
investment bank that runs the Sun
Valley conference, a networking
event frequented by tech elites
such as Facebook chief executive
Mark Zuckerberg, entrepreneur
Elon Musk and Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey.
His cousin Amir Khosrowshahi
co-founded an artificial-intelligence company, Nervana, that was
acquired by Intel last year for
$400 million. He is now an executive in Intel’s artificial-intelligence
unit. Dara Khosrowshahi’s twin
cousins, Ali and Hadi Partovi,
were early investors in many of the
most successful tech companies
produced by Silicon Valley over
the past decade, including Airbnb,
Dropbox, Uber and Facebook.
They also co-founded Code.org, an
influential nonprofit organization
focused on improving computer
science education across the United States.
Two other family members are
Google executives. One cousin,
Farzad Khosrowshahi, invented
the software tool for Google
spreadsheets and is the executive
that runs Google Docs. Another
family member, Avid Larizadeh
Duggan, is a general partner at
Google Ventures, the search giant’s venture-capital arm that invests in start-ups. (Uber was an
investment in the Google ventures
portfolio.)
In an interview, Ali Partovi said
he and his brother have always
looked up to their cousin Dara:
“My whole life, anytime I’ve faced
a high-pressure decision, my model for mature behavior has been,
‘What would Dara do?’ He’s one of
the humblest and most evenkeeled people I know.”
Many of the cousins went to the
same high school, the Hackley
School, a private prep school in
Tarrytown, N.Y., Partovi said.
Over the years, they have
helped one another, investing in
one another’s companies and supporting one another’s ideas. The
extended family moved to the
United States in the late 1970s and
1980s, fleeing the Iranian Revolution.
Their immigrant success story
isn’t lost on them, which is why
Dara Khosrowshahi and his cousins became some of the most vocal
opponents of President Trump’s
effort to ban people from Muslimmajority countries, including
Iran, from entering the United
States. Shortly after the initial ban
was issued, Khosrowshahi sent a
memo to the entire Expedia workforce.
“I believe that with this executive order, our president has reverted to the short game,” he
wrote. “The US may be ever so
slightly less dangerous as a place
to live, but it will certainly be seen
as a smaller nation, one that is
inward-looking versus forward
thinking, reactionary versus visionary.”
Conversations with Khosrowshahi began in Seattle a few weeks
ago, said people familiar with the
discussions. At the time, the Uber
board was considering two other
candidates with higher profiles:
Jeff Immelt, who recently announced he was retiring as GE’s
chief executive, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise chief Meg Whitman.
Negotiations lasted throughout
the weekend, and the decision was
a close call between Whitman and
Khosrowshahi, people familiar
with the discussions told The
Washington Post. Uber’s eightmember board debated until the
last minute Sunday.
The talks were kept so secret
that many of Khosrowshahi’s family members were surprised when
they heard the news, Ali Partovi
said. “My phone has been blowing
up with messages for my family for
the last hour,” he said Sunday evening.
As of Monday, Khosrowshahi
was still pondering the job, according to an internal letter circulated among Expedia’s staff by
Chairman Barry Diller. “Nothing
has been yet finalized,” Diller
wrote, “but having extensively discussed this with Dara I believe it is
his intention to accept.”
Khosrowshahi won’t be a cheap
hire. He was named the highest
paid U.S. chief executive by Equilar for his 2015 compensation,
thanks largely to a long-term stock
option package valued at
$90.8 million he would gain access to over several years.
As of Friday’s close, that meant
Khosrowshahi had unvested options worth about $97.5 million if
he stayed on at Expedia, according
to an analysis by independent
compensation consultant Brian
Foley. Yet he also has options that
would be worth an additional
$82.5 million if aggressive stockprice performance targets were
met, bringing the total to at least
$180 million.

Gilead to acquire Kite
for nearly $12 billion
Gilead Sciences agreed to buy
Kite Pharma in a $11.9 billion
deal on Monday as it looks to
replace flagging sales from
hepatitis C drugs with an
emerging and expensive class of
cancer immunotherapies that are
expected to generate billions of
dollars in revenue.
Santa Monica, Calif.-based Kite
is developing chimeric antigen
receptor T-cell therapy, known as
a CAR T, which harnesses the
body’s immune cells to recognize
and attack malignant cells.
Gilead will pay $180 per share
in an all-cash deal, representing a
29.4 percent premium over Kite’s
Friday close.
Recent breakthroughs
convinced Gilead’s management
that they needed to buy a
company developing CAR T
treatments.
Gilead’s growth has been
fueled by its pricey but
revolutionary hepatitis C drugs,
but with fewer eligible patients
and rising competition, sales
have begun to fall.
Second-quarter sales of its
hepatitis C drugs — Sovaldi,
Harvoni and Epclusa — totaled
$2.9 billion, down from $4 billion
a year earlier.
Kite is one of the leading
players in the emerging field of
CAR T. The Food and Drug
Administration is expected to
decide by Nov. 29 whether to
approve Kite’s CAR T, axi-cel, for
treatment of adults with
advanced lymphoma.
Wall Street and Gilead
shareholders have long been
expecting Gilead to use its cash
pile for a big-ticket acquisition.
Gilead is hoping the deal,
expected to close in the fourth
quarter, will repeat the success of
its 2011 purchase of Pharmasset.

according to Frank Yu, an analyst

Shenhua will be able to lower
its reliance on coal-fired capacity,
about 90 percent, by gaining
some of Guodian’s clean energy

meanwhile, will be able to benefit
from Shenhua’s coal supply and

as its integrated infrastructure of

FDA cracking down on stem-cell clinics that use unapproved treatments
StemImmune was
injecting cancer patients
with smallpox vaccine
BY
L AURIE M C G INLEY
The Food and Drug Administration on Monday announced a
crackdown on stem-cell clinics
offering “unapproved and potentially dangerous” treatments,
including an outfit in California
that has been using the smallpox
vaccine on seriously ill cancer
patients.
U.S. marshals on Friday raided San Diego-based StemImmune Inc. and seized the vaccine, which the FDA said had
been combined with stem cells
derived from fat to create an
unapproved product. The concoction was injected intravenously and directly into patients’ tumors at the California
Stem Cell Treatment Centers in
Rancho Mirage and Beverly
Hills, the agency said.
FDA Commissioner Scott
Gottlieb said in a statement that
the agency “will not allow deceitful actors to take advantage
of vulnerable patients by purporting to have treatments or
cures for serious diseases without any proof that they actually
work.”
For years, critics of stem-cell
clinics performing unproven
procedures have called on the
FDA to take action. One of them,
Paul Knoepfler, a biologist at the
University of California at Davis,
said Monday that the new enforcement actions, coupled with
a separate Gottlieb statement
about the future of stem-cell
therapies, “looks like positive
news.” He added, “I feel encouraged that this is a big step in the
right direction.”
StemImmune responded that
it has “fully cooperated with the
FDA about the development of
its stem-cell based cancer therapy” and that no patients have
suffered ill effects from the
treatment. Mark Berman, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who
was a co-founder of California
Stem Cell Treatment Centers,
called Gottlieb’s comments “libelous,” and added, “We’re not
ignoring the FDA and we aren’t
renegade doctors.”
In a separate enforcement
action, the agency on Monday
posted a warning letter issued
last week to U.S. Stem Cell of
Sunrise, Fla., saying that recent
FDA inspections of the clinic
found that it was processing
body fat into stem cells and
administering the product both
intravenously and directly into
the spinal cords of patients
supposedly to treat a variety of
serious diseases or conditions,
including Parkinson’s disease,
ALS, and heart and lung disease.
The FDA said that it has not
approved any products manufactured by U.S. Stem Cell and
that it had documented “significant deviations” from good
manufacturing practices in at
least 256 lots of its stem-cell
products. The agency also said
the clinic tried to impede the
FDA’s investigation by refusing
to allow entry except by appointment and by denying FDA investigators access to employees.
The clinic in March was the
subject of a New England Journal of Medicine report that three
women with age-related macular degeneration were blinded
or had their vision badly impaired after stem cells were
injected into their eyes.
In a statement, U.S. Stem Cell
said that “the safety and health
of our patients are our number
one priority and the strict standards that we have in place
follow the laws” of the FDA.
Stem-cell clinics offering unproven treatments have sprung
up by the hundreds nationwide
over the past several years. But
stem-cell research remains at an
early stage, and the FDA has
approved only a few therapies,
mostly for blood disorders.
Gottlieb, in the statement
about stem-cell therapies, said
that cell-based and “regenerative
medicine” hold “significant
promise for transformative and
potentially curative treatments”
for serious illnesses but that “a
small number of unscrupulous
actors” are putting the field at
risk. He said he is creating a
working group at the FDA “to
pursue unscrupulous clinics
through whatever legally enforceable means are necessary to
protect the public health.”
At the same time, he said, the
agency will develop a framework to more clearly describe
the “rules of the road” for the
field and to allow responsible
developers of stem-cell treatments to more easily win FDA
approval.
The FDA said it had “serious
concerns” about how StemIm-
mune obtained the smallpox
vaccine from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Thomas Skinner, a CDC spokesman, said that the company had
requested samples to vaccinate
researchers working with the
vaccinia virus, a poxvirus used
as a vaccine against smallpox
that is being tested in potential
cancer therapies. StemImmune
did not tell the agency it would
be injecting the vaccine into
patients. For people with compromised immune systems — as
is the case with many cancer
patients — exposure can result
in life-threatening medical
problems, including swelling of
the heart muscle.

Sometime-streamers: One show and they’re out
Consumers are taking
advantage of free trials,
no-contract deals
BY
B RIAN F UNG
Winter has finally come for
“Game of Thrones,” whose season
finale that aired Sunday left the
land of Westeros in as deep a
crisis as it’s seen in thousands of
years. But with the HBO fantasy
series on hiatus until at least the
end of 2018, some viewers say
they’re taking a break from HBO
entirely — highlighting a challenge facing many entertainment
companies in an era of constant
stimulation and on-demand digital services.
Colleen Morrison, a “Game of
Thrones” fan in New Jersey,
signed up for HBO’s online
streaming app in June. Now,
Morrison says, it’s going to be an
easy decision to cancel her subscription this week after she
watches the season finale a second time.
“I didn’t mind paying the $15
each month because it’s the kind
of show where I wanted an immediate viewing to avoid spoilers, but I’m also not interested in
keeping the service since I’m not
invested in anything else,” she
said.
Morrison is part of a small but
savvy crowd of consumers who
know exactly what they want out
of their TV experience. Costconscious and empowered by the
Internet’s convenience-at-a-click
mentality, these consumers take
advantage of free trials, nocontract commitments and the
media industry’s struggle in the
face of technological change to
help guard their wallets.
“So with no #GameofThrones
for almost two years, guess I can
cancel #HBO now for a while and
save nearly $200,” tweeted Luke
Reasoner, a journalist living in
South Carolina.
Ignoring the barrage of inhouse teasers and promos for
other content, these viewers resist the siren song of TV networks
that, more than ever, are being
forced to battle one another for
attention dominance. An abundance of high-quality television
shows from Netflix, Hulu and
old-school cable programmers
like AMC, HBO and Showtime are
helping some consumers become
more discerning in their tastes —
and less loyal. Abandoning one
series or channel for another has
never been more convenient or
less risky, particularly when
many cable channels offer
streaming apps directly to the
public instead of through cable
companies or other traditional
TV providers.
“In a world where you can turn
anything on and off whenever
you want, you’re always fighting
for my wallet,” said Rich Greenfield, a media analyst at BTIG. “I
can cancel Hulu or Sling TV or
HBO or DirecTV Now — any of
these things have become ‘point
at a button and click.’ ”
On traditional cable, television
programmers can easily retain
customers because of the channel
bundle. To extricate themselves
from a single channel, consumers
must often weigh the risks of
losing many other channels and
potentially breaking off a contract with their cable company.
Even if it’s a small, premium tier
they’re looking to shed, customers still have to brace for a
time-intensive phone call with
their cable provider, which many
find off-putting.
Because canceling something
online can be so easy, you tend to
see higher cancellation rates
across the streaming TV industry,
said Glenn Hower, a senior analyst at the market research firm
Parks Associates. Although just
1 percent of cancellations are by
viewers discontinuing a free trial,
many people appear to be spending just months on a streaming
service before switching.
“The churn numbers tend to be
pretty high, indicating there are a
substantial number of consumers
subscribing to a service for a
short time and then bailing out,”
Hower said. Studies by Parks
Associates have found that, on
average, streaming services manage to hang on to customers for
little more than a year. Netflix
enjoys more staying power than
most, retaining customers for an
average length of 21/2 years, Hower
said.
Part of the secret to Netflix’s
success has been a relentless
string of television hits, as well as
its use of data to design shows
that are highly tailored to specific
audiences. There’s some evidence
that other TV producers are following this strategy: As “Game of
Thrones” was wrapping its season finale, HBO made sure viewers got a taste of its upcoming
drama “The Deuce,” which debuts Sept. 10.
“Your promos help remind
people so that at the end of the
month they feel, ‘You know what,
I guess we did watch stuff on the
network this month,’ ” said Quentin Schaffer, a spokesman for
HBO. The company hasn’t noticed any immediate uptick in
cancellations since the season
finale of “Thrones,” but it will be
at least a month or two before any
cancellations show up in the
numbers. HBO doesn’t make a
habit, though, of disclosing cancellation figures.
Analysts say that if left unchecked, churn could hinder
these services’ growth.
“All of these services have the
same problem,” Greenfield said.

Flood of courage
In Houston, a massive — and inspiring — volunteer rescue response.
A
cavalry is coming” with thousands of National Guard
members, 20 helicopters and 60 boats and high-water
vehicles, the storm was far bigger than they could
manage alone. Emergency 911 services were overwhelmed, while the National Weather Service announced: “This event is unprecedented & all impacts
are unknown & beyond anything experienced.” With
nothing more than their own courage, good people
ventured into the rushing gullies and culverts, risking
their lives to save others in the unrelenting rain. As of
Monday, there were more than 2,000 people rescued
and hundreds more waiting for help.
Lest anyone breathe a sigh of relief, this storm
promises to upend lives for years to come. Already,
30,000 people have been forced to flee to shelters;
they may not return home for some time. Rebuilding
and restoring the region is going to require billions
of dollars. The federal government, with help from
Congress, needs to respond generously and without
partisan rancor, hard as that is to imagine in today’s
environment.
The storm will also raise questions that deserve
answers after such a disaster. One of the most
consequential is to what degree superstorms are
being made even more frequent and ferocious by
global climate change. Each storm is different, but
Hurricane Harvey gathered strength after months in
which winter temperatures in the Houston area and
readings in Gulf of Mexico waters have been smashing records; last winter, the average sea surface
temperature never fell below 73 degrees for the first
time on record.
As temperatures rise and megastorms smash into
the coasts more often, to what extent should planners and builders of modern cities prepare for
once-in-a-century disruptions? Harvey, Sandy and
Katrina may be remembered as the wake-up calls of
our age. They must be heeded.
An unjust
pardon
Mr. Trump’s pardon of Mr. Arpaio
revealed his disdain for rule of law.
The Aug. 26 editorial “For Fairfax County School
Board” complained about the $250,000 cost of the
special election but offered no comment about the
$1 million cost the Democratic-leaning school board
approved to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart High
School. Then, without skipping a beat, the editorial
board stated that the “school system grapples with
fiscal challenges caused by the inability of state and
county funds to keep up with its fast growth” and
faulted the defeat of a proposed meals tax. The
editorial noted that the proposed county meals tax
was soundly rejected but failed to mention that it lost
because of the votes of both Democrats and Republicans.
I am hopeful that readers will vote for candidates
who will stop this school board from spending huge
sums of money on things that have nothing whatsoever to do with educating our children.

Repeating hackneyed mantras
The Aug. 23 editorial “ ‘Principled realism’ in
Afghanistan” labeled rejection of “nation-building”
a “hackneyed mantra” and claimed that continued
U.S. troop deployment to Afghanistan “can also be
compared with U.S. military deployments in Germany, Japan and South Korea, which have lasted far
longer.” Such a comparison is false and an echo of the
George W. Bush administration’s ignorant claim
that our deployment to Iraq would be met with
cheers.
Germany, Japan and South Korea have had years
of strong central government control, not decentralized tribal control as in Afghanistan. Furthermore,
U.S. troops in Germany, Japan and South Korea have
not had to function, let alone wage endless war,
where the host country has rampant internal hatred
caused by centuries of religious venom.

Leaders should walk in their shoes
P
RESIDENT TRUMP hinted for weeks that he
might pardon former Arizona sheriff Joe
Arpaio. When he finally did so on Friday, the
White House’s official statement lauding
Mr. Arpaio failed to mention the charge for which
Mr. Trump had granted clemency: a criminal conviction of contempt of court for defying an order to halt
racial profiling. Whatever the White House may say
about Mr. Arpaio’s “selfless public service,” the
president’s decision is a slap in the face to Latinos
and undocumented immigrants and a gift to
Mr. Trump’s farthest-right supporters.
Despite Mr. Trump’s suggestion that Mr. Arpaio
was “convicted for doing his job,” a federal judge
found the former sheriff guilty of contempt when he
refused to cease rounding up suspected undocumented immigrants on the basis of appearance
alone. But Mr. Arpaio’s abuse of his authority as
sheriff went well beyond racial profiling. With pride,
he detained inmates in inhumane conditions and
humiliated them in the name of deterring crime.
And like Mr. Trump, he rose to national prominence
by casting doubt on whether Barack Obama was
born in the United States.
Mr. Trump did not consult with the Justice
Department before pardoning Mr. Arpaio. Indeed,
the former sheriff had not even applied for a pardon
through the long-standing Justice Department system. Perhaps that’s appropriate: The department’s
guidelines state that pardon applicants should show
remorse and atonement for their actions. Mr. Arpaio
has shown none. (He is now pushing for the federal
court to vacate its verdict against him.)
A pardon was Mr. Trump’s second choice. Last
spring, the president reportedly asked Attorney
General Jeff Sessions whether the Justice Department might be able to drop the then-ongoing
investigation of Mr. Arpaio. When Mr. Sessions
informed Mr. Trump that such a request would be
inappropriate, the president settled on clemency

FTER THIS, “Houston” and “Harvey” will be
synonyms for a deluge of unfathomable
proportions. Floodwaters crept up to the
thresholds of homes at one minute; at the
next, people were fleeing, knee-deep in muddy pools,
surrounded by fire ants and snakes. In all the
misfortune and misery of this storm, one positive
note stands out: the stories of how first responders,
neighbors, strangers and just plain folks threw their
all into the rescue effort.
On roads that had turned into rivers, rescuers in
kayaks and fishing boats searched for victims
trapped in cars and on rooftops. A television reporter saw a man stuck inside the cab of a truck and
called in help. A preacher up to his waist in muddy
water checked marooned cars for victims trapped
inside. Neighbors grabbed neighbors and heaved
them to safety.

instead.
The president’s authority to bestow pardons is
nearly without restraint. But granting clemency for
a defendant convicted of contempt of court speaks to
the same disdain toward the judicial system that
Mr. Trump has displayed in his attacks on “so-called”
judges. (Mr. Arpaio has taken a similar approach,
decrying his conviction as a “political witch hunt.”)
And Mr. Trump’s discussion with Mr. Sessions recalls
his suggestion to then-FBI Director James B. Comey
to drop the bureau’s investigation of Michael Flynn,
Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser.
This pardon is not only a mark of Mr. Trump’s
inclination to inflame rather than bind up the
nation’s wounds. It is also a warning of his lack of
respect for the independence of the courts and of law
enforcement in a country governed by the rule of law
— a worrying characteristic in a president facing an
ongoing special counsel investigation. But
Mr. Trump should take the outraged response to
Mr. Arpaio’s pardon from across the political spectrum as a warning, too: a sign of the resistance he
will encounter if he chooses to issue further pardons,
particularly in the Russia affair, on the basis of
political concerns rather than those of justice.

The Aug. 24 front-page article “Returning to
Mosul’s Old City, where homes are now tombs”
provided an important and heart-rending story of
the human tragedy and turmoil experienced by the
residents of Mosul, Iraq, as they returned to their
homes, buried their loved ones and attempted to
rebuild their lives.
Each time world leaders — including North
Korea’s Kim Jong Un, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and,
yes, President Trump — issue threats that lead us to
the brink of war, they should be required to read this
article and then spend a month preparing rotting
bodies for burial, trying to console children who
have lost their parents and helping grief-stricken
citizens.
Millions of people have suffered enough. It is time
that peace-loving people demand that their leaders, who issue threats or order acts of war from their
secure compounds, experience the disaster that
their threats and orders create. The leaders should
then be required to meet their adversaries personally to discuss issues.

A wise call on Egypt aid
I was pleased to read in the Aug. 23 news article
“U.S. holds up military assistance to Egypt over
human rights concerns” that even the human
rights-challenged Trump administration finds
Egypt’s record sufficiently lacking that it is withholding, at least temporarily, previously approved
military and other aid to Egypt. Unfortunately, the
article made no mention of the far greater amount
that the United States already gave to Egypt during
the fiscal year when its human rights record was
just as appalling.

The Purple Line gets the green light
The light-rail line could represent a rare local-state-federal success story.
I
N RECENT years, as Maryland’s proposed lightrail Purple Line drew closer to final approval
after decades of planning, it faced a rolling
battery of existential threats. They included the
initial hostility of a Republican governor; the diehard opposition of well-heeled suburban neighbors
who feared losing portions of a beloved walking and
biking trail; the Trump administration’s threat to ax
transit funding nationally; and an exceptionally obtuse ruling by a federal judge that for a time seemed
the death knell for the embattled $5.6 billion project.
Despite those hurdles, the Purple Line remains
very much alive — so alive that on Monday it celebrated a groundbreaking attended by Gov. Larry Hogan (R) and federal Transportation Secretary Elaine
Chao, who also signed a $900 million federal funding
agreement. Mr. Hogan, who as a candidate pronounced the project unaffordable, now says construction will start immediately. To leave no doubt, he
promptly took controls of an excavator and started
whacking away at a building to be razed to make way
for the project.
The Purple Line is not yet in the clear. A federal
appeals court has not finished hearing from the
project’s opponents, mainly some of its neighbors in
Montgomery County who still hope to halt the 16.2mile line that would link Bethesda in Montgomery
County with New Carrollton in Prince George’s County. Nonetheless, the court, which swept aside a lowercourt ruling blocking federal funding and stopping
construction, gave the go-ahead for both. Optimism
now surrounds the Purple Line’s prospects and its
promise of improving the lives of tens of thousands of
daily commuters. Older, close-in suburban communities through which the line’s 21 stations would be built
also have reason to hope for economic improvements.
In a public landscape littered with toxic partisan
warfare and government dysfunction, the Purple
Line’s construction would be a striking success story,
a rare example of broad cooperation across party
lines, and among federal, state and local government
partners in coordination with the private sector. In
addition to the federal funding contribution, Maryland would kick in several billion dollars over 35 or so
years; the two counties would also pony up tens of
millions. A private consortium that would build and
operate the project would chip in $1 billion, with
expectations of long-term profits.
Everyone involved has had to swallow hard, not
least Mr. Hogan, a Republican with a rural and
exurban base who needed to cooperate with the two
most heavily Democratic and urbanized counties in
the state. The Trump administration has had to
overlook Mr. Hogan’s plain distaste for the occupant
of the Oval Office. And, yes, some (though not all)
neighbors of the Purple Line have also realized that
its obvious benefits outweigh the painful fact that a
segment of it will run alongside a reshaped Capital
Crescent Trail, diminishing a cherished local amenity
in favor of a greater regional good.
Sometimes things in the public sphere actually
work out for the best. Here’s hoping this is one of
those times.

Gerrymandering has cost many Marylanders true representation
Regarding the Aug. 25 Metro article “Maryland
voting map stays put, for now”:
The congressman elected to Maryland’s 6th Congressional District, John Delaney (D), did not live in
the district when he was elected, and he did not
even bother to move to the district after his election
yet was elected a second time.
Now that Mr. Delaney is running for president,
do you think the likely replacement Democratic
nominee for the 6th District will be a resident of the
district? No. David Trone, who lives in the 8th Congressional District, has a good chance of winning.
These people should run for Congress in the district
where they live.
The gerrymander pushed by Maryland’s thengovernor, Martin O’Malley (D), has prevented the
residents of Frederick, Howard, Washington, Allegany and Garrett counties and even the northern
portion of Montgomery County from electing
someone to Congress who lives in their communities. I am not saying the candidate necessarily
needs to be Republican (although I admit that is
likely to be the way I will vote). But it should be
someone who has enough respect for the constituents to have lived for a year in that congressional
district.
The gerrymander may be constitutional, but it
treats my neighbors who live in what used to be the
6th Congressional District as ignorant redneck
rubes who shouldn’t be permitted to vote for their
congressional representation.

There is no question that the United States is
coping with an opioid epidemic of overwhelming
proportions. Unfortunately, the Aug. 22 Health &
Science article “Hospices can be a source of illicit
opioids” unfairly pointed to the hospice community’s
role in exacerbating this national crisis.
As noted, hospice professionals do not have the
authority to confiscate or destroy unused opioids and
other pills. Federal regulations require hospice professionals to go over the federal drug-disposal guidelines with family caregivers, but hospice professionals are prohibited from taking a more active role in
disposing or removing medications from the home.
Some states have acted to put more control in the
hands of hospice professionals; the National Hospice
and Palliative Care Organization supports a national
policy and uniform set of practices. To this end, the
NHPCO has drafted legislation and is working with
Congress to expand the ability of hospice professionals to help families dispose of drugs.
Hospices work to do the right thing for patients
and families, to address the pain and suffering of
patients and to support their loved ones.

Where were church leaders?
Regarding the Aug. 24 Metro article “Priest, as
Klansman, never paid damages”:
If the Rev. William Aitcheson were honestly
remorseful for his cross-burning and other acts of
hate, wouldn’t he seek every day of his life to make
amends to the Butlers, the family on whose lawn he
burned a cross? Instead, he never even apologized to
them or paid his legally obligated restitution.
The Catholic Diocese of Arlington knew of the
crime but never required Mr. Aitcheson to pay
restitution. How could church officials not have
sought to give this family some peace after being
terrorized? The diocese’s failure to require restitution to the Butlers, for 24 years now, tells us the
diocese did not deem it important enough. Incredible.
Each day that has gone by with not even the
simplest courtesy of an apology constitutes a fresh
sin against this family. By what definition do these
inactions, by men of the cloth no less, give honor to
God? I hope God can forgive them. To the Butler
family, I am sorry for your pain. I will hold you
always in my heart.

What Trump
sees in Arpaio
This pardon
deepens the
moral damage
to the GOP
T
here are lots of compelling reasons not to pardon the country’s
most famous racist in the middle
of a hurricane.
So why exactly did President Trump
decide to pardon Joe Arpaio?
Maybe, some speculated, Trump
wanted to toss some red meat to his
base. Trump’s recent Phoenix campaignrally crowd practically frothed at the
mouth when he hinted at a coming
pardon of the former Maricopa County
sheriff. As Trump’s overall approval
hovers around 35 percent, a high-profile
pardon of a notorious racial profiler
might be a way to shore up his support.
But Trump had also previously pursued more behind-the-scenes moves to
help Arpaio avoid facing justice, as my
Post colleagues reported over the weekend. Which suggests that public credit
may not have been the primary goal.
Others speculated that the pardon
was about rewarding a longtime ally for
his loyalty. Arpaio was, after all, one of
the first politicians to board the Trump
train. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions
was also among Trump’s earliest political supporters, and loyalty alone did not
shield him from public torment and
humiliation at the hands of the president.
Another popular theory is that the
pardon was a signal to other Trump
confederates coming into special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s orbit that the
president will protect them. No need to
turn on our boy, y’ hear?
In my view, the most likely explanation for this stomach-churning pardon
is much simpler: It’s projection. Trump
sees himself — or what he sometimes
aspires to accomplish, anyway — in this
local tin-pot dictator.
Think about it. Trump has not exactly
proved himself to be the forwardlooking, calculating mastermind implied by those alternative explanations.
And he makes everything — including
the Charlottesville violence, the Houston catastrophe, even the eclipse —
about himself.
Trump and Arpaio both built their
political careers by demonizing immigrants. They also both raised their
national profiles by claiming that Barack Obama was secretly a Kenyan-born
Muslim, a racist conspiracy theory that
Arpaio even sent a taxpayer-funded
deputy to Hawaii to investigate.
And more broadly they both seem to
use “law and order” as code for encouraging law enforcement to harass people
of color.
Those are the best-known parallels
between the two politicians, but they’re
hardly the only ones. There are many
other ways in which Arpaio has proved
to be Trump’s mini-me.
Arpaio has, for example, jailed journalists who wrote critical stories about
his hidden commercial real estate transactions. Trump’s antipathy for the media
likewise goes beyond bashing us as “the
enemy of the people” and threatening to
“open up the libel laws” — he reportedly
asked the FBI director to fight leaks by
throwing journalists in jail.
Or consider their preferred forms of
pomp and circumstance.
For years as sheriff, Arpaio rode a
giant tank in local parades. Trump
hoped (but failed) to emulate this in his
own inaugural parade in January.
Trump also plans to issue an executive
order expanding the militarization of
local police forces, which Obama had
rolled back.
Both Trump and Arpaio also have
launched attacks on the independence
of our federal judiciary.
Trump did this by, among other
things, questioning the ability of a
U.S.-born judge of Mexican descent to
remain impartial in a Trump University
case. Arpaio, for his part, refused a court
order to stop racial profiling — earning
him a contempt-of-court conviction, the
crime for which he was pardoned.
Before that, Arpaio secretly investigated a judge assigned to his trial, and
then claimed that this same judge could
not be impartial because the judge had
learned about the politically motivated
investigation.
Politically motivated investigations
were actually a mainstay of Arpaio’s law
enforcement career, as well as Trump’s
campaign rallies (“Lock her up!”), while
both claim to be victims of political
witch hunts themselves.
And woe betide those who actually
find themselves imprisoned under either’s authority.
Trump throughout the presidential
campaign repeatedly advocated torturing prisoners held abroad; Arpaio often
acted on this brutal impulse in his own
jails. He set up a “tent city,” which he
sometimes referred to as a “concentration camp,” housing inmates in temperatures reaching up to 145 degrees; conditions got so hot that prisoners’ shoes
sometimes melted.
And at least three prisoners died —
each at the time held down in a
“restraint chair” — via suffocation.
Trump and the White House repeatedly alluded to 85-year-old Arpaio’s
advanced age when justifying his absolution, perhaps another reason that the
oldest man to assume the presidency
empathizes with the recipient of his first
pardon.
Over the two years of his political life,
Trump’s insults have often been of the
I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I projectional variety. Turns out his praise and
clemency are, as well.

Residents wade through floodwaters from the remains of Hurricane Harvey in Houston on Monday.
EUGENE ROBINSON
Pay heed to nature’s warning
P
ay attention to what happened to Houston. It is rare to
be given such a vivid look at
our collective future.
Climate change cannot be definitively blamed for Hurricane Harvey,
but it likely did make the storm more
powerful. Global warming did not
conjure the rains that flooded the
nation’s fourth-largest city, but it
likely did make them more torrential.
The spectacle of rescue boats plying
the streets of a major metropolis is
something we surely will see again.
The question is how often.
The relationship between climate
and weather is undeniable but never
specific. Tropical cyclones do not
batter Siberia’s arctic coast and heavy
snowfalls do not blanket the beaches
of Barbados because the climates are
different. But no one blizzard or
hurricane can be attributed to climate change beyond the shadow of a
doubt — which opens anyone who
raises the subject at a time like this to
the accusation of “politicizing” a
disaster.
The science explaining climate
change is clear, however, no matter
what deniers such as President
Trump choose to believe. And it will
be political decisions that determine
how often we witness scenes of
devastation like those in Houston.
Begin with the basic fact of a
warming planet, due primarily to
greenhouse gas emissions from the
burning of fossil fuels. The waters of
the Gulf of Mexico are unusually
warm this summer — between
two and three degrees above normal
— which gave Harvey extra energy
and moisture.
Hurricanes usually weaken when
they approach a coastline, but Harvey was able to gain strength, making
landfall as a Category 4 storm. Ac-
cording to Pennsylvania State University professor Michael E. Mann,
one of the world’s leading experts on
climate change, Harvey’s unprecedented rainfall totals were likely
boosted by global warming in at least
two ways. Higher atmospheric and
ocean temperatures mean more
evaporation, Mann wrote in the
Guardian, which means more precipitation. And the fact that the storm
parked itself so stubbornly over
Houston is due to a jet-stream pattern predicted in scientists’ climatechange models.
Since 2005, we’ve had Katrina,
Sandy and now Harvey. The flood
next time could come in Corpus
Christi, Mobile, Pensacola, Tampa
Bay, Naples, Miami, Jacksonville, Savannah, Charleston — no one knows
where. But there is no doubt that it
will come.
Humankind has boosted the concentration of carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere by a shocking 40 percent
since the beginning of the Industrial
Revolution, when we started burning
fossil fuels on a large scale. Even if
carbon emissions were magically
ended tomorrow, warming would
continue for many years. But we can
— if we choose — keep climate
change from getting catastrophically
out of hand.
The rest of the industrialized
world has decided to move toward a
clean-energy future — and reap the
economic benefits such a shift can
entail. I’m betting that Trump’s successor, whether a Democrat or a
Republican, will reverse his shortsighted, self-defeating decision to
withdraw from the Paris climate
accord.
But in addition to mitigating climate change, we must adapt to the
warming we have made inevitable.
Houston officials at least tried to
learn one lesson: In 2005, as Hurricane Rita approached, officials ordered an evacuation that turned
freeways into parking lots; about
100 people died in the chaos. This
time, residents were initially advised
to stay put — and, from what we
know so far, there appears to have
been much less loss of life.
But billions of dollars’ worth of
private and public infrastructure is
being destroyed. Because low-lying
coastal cities are not likely to pick up
and move inland, they are going to
need new natural or artificial barriers to protect against storm surge
(which might have been the big
problem with Harvey, but wasn’t)
and high-capacity drainage systems
to alleviate flooding (which was).
Such projects are hugely expensive
— but cheaper than repairing the
damage from a citywide flood.
Also, the nation needs a sustainable way of providing flood insurance
to those living in vulnerable areas.
The current National Flood Insurance Program charges rates that do
not nearly cover its outlays, and for
years it relied on out-of-date maps
that did not accurately show flood
risks.
Buildings, meanwhile, can be
made more flood-proof. President
Barack Obama signed an executive
order requiring builders who receive
federal funds for a project to account
for the risk of flooding in their
construction plans. Trump rescinded
the measure, saying it was “jobkilling.” How many people went to
work in Houston today?
Folks, nature is telling us something. How many “100-year” storms
or “1,000-year” floods will it take for
us to listen?
And stay he should — for now. He is the
necessary man in the president’s inner
circle. It’s true that his influence may be
curtailed now that he has criticized the
president, but it is not true that the recent
purge of White House hyper-nationalists
means that Cohn is less essential. Stephen K. Bannon, Sebastian Gorka and, in
prehistory, Michael Flynn can always
reach Trump on the phone or through
such outlets as Fox News and Breitbart.
They lost proximity but not influence.
They still cook in the kitchen cabinet.
In a recent Wall Street Journal interview, Richard Haass, president of the
Council on Foreign Relations who has
served under four presidents, outlined
reasons for Cohn to stay or go. Stay if he
thinks he’s having “a real impact,” but go
if he “can’t live with where the president
comes out on a big issue,” or because
“there is a pattern of decision-making
you can’t agree with.” In a follow-up with
me, Haass added a third: “Am I comfortable representing the president’s policies?”
In talking with other former officials, I
found no unanimity on whether Cohn
should remain or leave. If Trump were
not such a reckless president, the choice
would be easy. But if there is a chance to
restrain his behavior, to temper his temper, to nudge him toward moderation,
then staying is the right choice. One critic
of Cohn pointed me to the Mishna, the
ancient Jewish commentary in which the
sage Hillel says, “In a place where there
are no men, strive to be a man.” Yes, I
understand. But for now, being a rare
man in the White House is perhaps better
for all of us than being just another man
outside.

A necessary man in the White House
I
Charlottesville goons were mostly animated by racism. Yet the demand for
Trump’s black appointees to criticize the
president was so muted it could hardly be
heard. And what about the rest of
Trump’s team? Each one of them had an
obligation to criticize a president who
couldn’t tell a neo-Nazi march from one
by the Lions Club. Why Cohn?
If there is a chance
to restrain Trump’s
behavior, then staying
is the right choice
for Gary Cohn.
The answer was written on Cohn’s
face. As the president waxed idiotic,
Cohn seemed pained. Had he adopted a
game face, he might have been given a
pass. But the media jumped on the optics
— and, of course, his reputation as a
reasonable man and a registered Democrat. Finally, Cohn told the Financial
Times how he felt: “Citizens standing up
for equality and freedom can never be
equated with white supremacists, neoNazis and the KKK.” He added that
Trump “can and must do better” on
condemning hate groups.
Still, the call went out for Cohn to
resign for moral reasons. He was denounced as a “court Jew,” a choice bit of
opprobrium on the moral level of “Uncle
Tom.” He was reported to be considering
quitting. Friends emailed. Stay. Go.
The Arizona sheriff
made a career
of dehumanizing prisoners.
Others have commented on the legal
precedent of effectively pardoning someone for abusing the constitutional rights
of an ethnic minority. Done in a manner
that employs the pardon power as a
reward for political loyalty. Resulting
from a process that evidently did not
involve the normal review and recommendation of the Justice Department’s
pardon attorney. Was White House Counsel Donald McGahn — a reputed libertarian — involved in this permission for
swaggering government oppression? Better question: Why did he not resign in
protest? And how about Gary Cohn, who
famously almost resigned over events in
Charlottesville, demanding that the president “must do better”? Does he think the
Arpaio pardon is doing better?
Congressional Republicans have often
taken a wait-and-see attitude toward the
dishonoring and destruction of their
party. Now they can hardly deny that
Trump’s worst moments are his most
authentic moments, or that his definition
of loyalty requires defending the indefensible. A few voices — including both
Arizona senators and House Speaker Paul
D. Ryan — were critical of the pardon. But
congressional hearings demanding an
account of the pardon’s purpose and
process would demonstrate seriousness
in the only task — the only path of
self-respect and self-preservation — left
to Republican leaders: attempting to
salvage a party identity separate from
racism.
These legal and political ramifications
are clear enough. But it is the moral
damage that is deepest: the stoking of
tribal hatreds; the reckless fracturing of
national unity; and the statement made
about human worth.
A society’s treatment of prisoners is a
measure of its commitment to human
dignity. Some of these men and women
are guilty only of the wrong geography in
trying to feed their families. Others have
done terrible things. But they are still —
all of them — men and women, human
beings, at the complete mercy of the state.
According to Jewish and Christian teaching, they bear God’s image, which can
never be completely effaced. Treating
them humanely is the expression of a
defining national belief: that human
rights are not earned or granted, they are
recognized. Or not.
Arpaio made a career of dehumanizing
prisoners in his charge. His pardon sends
the signal that some people are less than
human. In one sense, this is perfectly
consistent. Trump has employed dehumanization as a political tool from the
start — of refugees, of migrants, of
Muslims. By his pardon of Arpaio, he has
metaphorically pardoned his own cruel
and divisive approach to politics. It is a
further step in Trump’s normalization
and entrenchment of bigotry in our
public life.
This creates a personal dilemma for
many Republicans. How do they explain
to their neighbors, and to their own
children, their involvement with an institution that has been allied with forces of
exclusion (at least at the national level)?
The answer is not for all people with
pricked consciences to leave, lest only
unpricked consciences remain. But complacency is permission. Resistance is
required. Any party that swallows the
Trump/Arpaio ethic will be poisoned. And
gagging, in this case, is a sign of health.
RICHARD COHEN
n the past two weeks, Gary Cohn has
somehow become the nation’s first
chief rabbi. His official title is director of the president’s National Economic Council, but that has been overshadowed by Cohn’s new status as the
Trump administration’s most controversial Jew. The question of whether he
should quit over President Trump’s remarks about the recent unrest in Charlottesville or remain as sort of a White
House hall monitor has become a lateAugust meme. Cohn’s problem is that he’s
the proverbial one-eyed man in the valley
of the blind.
So when the president blamed “both
sides” for a white-supremacist rally that
resulted in the death of a counterprotester, heads turned toward Cohn, who stood
behind Trump at his news conference:
How would he react? At first, he did not,
and the critics pounced. Here, they said,
was a Jew who remained mum while the
president engaged in odious moral
equivalency — both the neo-Nazis and
the counterdemonstrators were equally
at fault, Trump suggested — and later the
president claimed there were “very fine
people” in both camps. A “very fine” Nazi
is a chilling thought.
For a time, attention was also focused
on Steven Mnuchin, the treasury secretary, who is also Jewish. But he was an
early Trump backer, someone so blind or
indifferent to the president’s heroic
faults and so ridiculously voluble in
praise of him that he has a kind of
political dementia. In the media, he has
essentially been granted a plea of insanity. That left Cohn sort of standing alone
and being implored to speak out.
I can see why the demand was made.
But why wasn’t it made of others? The
epetition is the enemy of maintaining proper distinctions. It is a
short road from being serially
outraged to being slightly bored
to being completely inured.
Thus many are likely to find the pardon
of former Arizona county sheriff Joe
Arpaio to be just another . . . something.
Just another public feeding of President
Trump’s base; or just an additional shiny
distraction from real issues; or just one
more cause for head-shaking and
shoulder-shrugging; or just further evidence of the tawdry political company
kept by the president of the United States.
This would be a mistake. This presidential action is not “just” anything. Following his expression of sympathy for the
“very fine people” attending a whitesupremacist rally in Charlottesville —
who were, he said, defending “our history
and heritage” — Trump must have known
his next move would be highly symbolic,
either as a retreat from prejudice or as its
affirmation. What followed with the Arpaio pardon constitutes the most forthright racist incitement of the Trump era.
Trump has called Arpaio a “great American patriot,” employing a definition of
patriotism that includes extreme ethnic
profiling, terror raids, and cruel and
unusual punishment. A definition of patriotism that covers using internment
camps in extreme heat, parading women
and juvenile offenders for the cameras in
chain gangs, and degrading inmates in
creative acts of bullying. This is not
patriotism; it is the abuse of power in the
cause of bigotry.

To many Mexicans, NAFTA opening has seemed like a good deal
MEXICO FROM A1
Mexico and the United States far
closer together, a cross-border
blending of behaviors that even a
clampdown on trade is unlikely to
undo.
NAFTA renegotiation talks began Aug. 16 in Washington, on the
same day that the NFL sold out
tickets in under an hour for an
upcoming football game in Mexico City. The first negotiating sessions wrapped up four days later,
just before a Hollywood movie
crew began filming “Godzilla:
King of the Monsters” in Mexico
City’s central plaza.
On Sunday, President Trump
once again blasted NAFTA, tweeting that it was the “worst trade
deal ever made.” He blames the
treaty for the $60 billion annual
U.S. trade deficit with its southern
neighbor and a loss of industrial
jobs. But in Mexico, NAFTA represents something more profound.
In conversations here, free trade is
often a stand-in for what kind of
relationship Mexico wants with
the United States, and what type
of country Mexico wants to be.
“NAFTA broke the barriers that
limited our society from going out
into the world,” said Sergio
Aguayo, a prominent political
commentator and academic at the
College of Mexico. “In a spontaneous way, it began to hybridize
cultures, from Mexico to the United States and from the United
States to Mexico.”
That cultural mixing — and the
job gains that have come to some
sectors with freer trade — have
made NAFTA more popular in
Mexico than north of the border. A
Pew Research survey published in
May found that 60 percent of Mexicans polled believed NAFTA had
benefited their country; just
39 percent of Americans said the
pact had been good for the United
States.
Analysts attribute Mexico’s
positive feelings to NAFTA’s role
in opening what had for decades
been a closed economy. The agreement ushered in a flood of U.S.
consumer goods, retailers such as
Walmart — now Mexico’s largest
employer — and chains such as
Starbucks, which has opened outlets in all 32 Mexican states and
sells drinks costing more than the
daily minimum wage of $4.50 per
day.
All the big-box stores that populate the U.S. landscape — Costco,
Target, Home Depot, Office Depot,
Best Buy — also fly their flags in
Mexican cities.
“Mexico, in consumer terms,
has always loved the United
States,” said Esteban Illades, editor of the Mexican magazine
Nexos. “The definite proof that
this country loves America is that
IHOP opened its first outlet on
Palmas,” one of Mexico City’s
swankiest streets — and near the
offices of the country’s richest
man, Carlos Slim.
Mexican government and business leaders are zealous advocates
of free trade and lower tariffs,
even though that wasn’t the case
for much of the past century. The
Institutional Revolutionary Party
(PRI), which came to power in
1929, eventually embraced a protectionist model that kept out foreign competitors and subsidized

Trump
defends
his pardon
of Arpaio
Says disclosure during
hurricane probably
meant ‘far higher’ ratings
BY
BRETT GUNDLOCK/BLOOMBERG NEWS
Demonstrators march past the stock exchange in Mexico City during a protest against the North American Free Trade Agreement this
month. But according to a Pew Research poll, 60 percent of Mexicans believe the trade pact has benefited their country.
domestic industries — a strategy
intended to keep the powerful
United States from bleeding the
Mexican economy dry.
One result of this strategy was
that product selection was scant,
with items often of poor quality
and sold at high prices. Mexicans
who could afford it often traveled
to Texas or other border states to
shop or found contraband known
as “fayuca” at home — everything
from imported Snickers bars to
Levi’s jeans to stereo systems.
Mexico started opening in the
1980s, joining the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT),
an international tariff-reduction
pact, in 1986. Seven years later,
Mexico’s Senate approved NAFTA.
“The variety, quality and the
prices” of goods are all better now,
said Luis de la Calle, an economist
and one of the original NAFTA
negotiators. “Previously, Mexican
companies wanted to sell what
they decided to produce. Now,
they produce what sells. It’s a psychological and cultural change,
thanks to NAFTA.”
Some of the artifacts of preNAFTA Mexico can be found in
the Museum of Ancient Mexican
Toys, a four-story time capsule in
Mexico City that has preserved an
era when model trains and buses,
“lucha libre” plastic wrestling
dolls and hand-cranked music
boxes were manufactured in Mexico.
The museum’s owner, Roberto
Shimizu, opposed the free-trade
agreement when it was negotiated, and he was far from the only
one. The Zapatista guerrilla group
launched its armed rebellion on
Jan. 1, 1994, the day NAFTA went
into effect.
Shimizu’s Japanese immigrant
father had opened a toy and stationery shop in 1940 and later ran
a toy company. His factory closed
down, like so many others in Mexico, when faced with the onslaught of cheaper toys from the
United States and China.
Over the years, Shimizu collected what he called “common toys
for common people,” eventually
filling warehouses with Mexicanmade products. He said he opened
the museum “to show my kids the
value of these Mexican toys and
the industry history.”
“Mexico lost all this manufacturing, and it never will be recovered,” he said.
Guadalupe Loaeza, a 71-yearold columnist, said Mexican consumers have morphed over her
lifetime into something almost
foreign to her.
At dinner parties, she said, her
friends serve imported steaks;
when she goes to restaurants, it
might be for sushi, hamburgers,
Argentine beef, Spanish tapas,
Italian pasta. Mexican food, she
said, is “not the first option.”
“The world has become more
open to us, and it’s made us voracious, greedy for everything, insatiable,” Loaeza said. “So many excesses have contaminated us as a
society; we have lost our essence,
our equilibrium.”
The degree to which NAFTA
has transformed Mexico or
“Americanized” the country remains disputed. The Mexican government promoted the agreement
in the early 1990s with the heady
promise of making Mexico “First
World.” But the economy has expanded at a middling pace of
roughly 2.6 percent annually.
Some states have boomed, including those benefiting from
tourism, such as Quintana Roo
and Baja California Sur (home to
Cancun and Los Cabos, respectively), and the central-west region known as the “Bajio,” where
auto and manufacturing investments flooded in. However, almost half the population still lives
in poverty, according to government statistics, while average purchasing power has eroded in recent years.
Unlike during the first negotiations, no strong anti-NAFTA lobby has surfaced in Mexico recently. Protesters, including farmers
and union members, did march
on the day that NAFTA talks began, and some prominent politicians say they want to pull out of
the treaty before Trump can blow
it up. But the opposition does not
appear large enough to influence
Mexico’s bargaining position.
Even leftist presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador — whose lead in the polls
spooks political and business
elites — hasn’t forcefully attacked
the treaty.
The lack of widespread opposition in part comes from the weakness of unions and farm groups.
Analysts cite additional factors,
including Mexicans’ appreciation
of the wider selection of goods and
services available. After Trump’s
inauguration, an attempt to gin
up a boycott of Starbucks and
other U.S. companies fell flat.
Lawmakers have also kept any
anti-NAFTA rhetoric in check, a
reflection of the country’s cautious political culture and a recognition that Mexico depends on
foreign direct investment, said
Juan Fernando Ibarra, a Mexico
native who is an assistant professor of political science at Colgate
University.
Ibarra also points to the boom
in the Bajio region, where annual
GDP growth in some states has
topped 10 percent a year.
“Growth in the country has, on
the whole, been somewhat poor,”
he said. “But there is a nucleus of
states that really benefited.”
Along with growing trade,
American trends have taken hold
in Mexico.
“ ‘Brisket’ is now in the vernacular,” said Dan DeFossey, a Long
Island native and co-founder of
Pinche Gringo BBQ, one of at least
14 barbecue joints in Mexico City.
(“Pinche” translates as “damned,”
or worse.)
DeFossey started selling brisket from an Airstream trailer
parked in a vacant lot in 2013, later
started a restaurant and recently
opened a second 410-seat outlet.
A poll for El Financiero newspaper found that 88 percent of
Mexicans surveyed disapproved
of Trump, and just 3 percent expressed approval. But DeFossey
says the anger toward Trump
hasn’t surfaced in his barbecue
business. “The day after the election I was terrified, because of our
name, Pinche Gringo,” DeFossey
said. “Not one time has anyone
said anything about us or given us
bad comments.
“It’s the most beautiful thing in
this country, the separating of politics from people.”

A SHLEY P ARKER
President Trump defended his
controversial pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio on Monday,
saying his decision to announce it
during Hurricane Harvey probably
earned it “far higher” ratings.
Speaking at a joint news conference with the president of Finland, Trump made his first comments on Arpaio since his decision
to pardon the former Arizona lawman — defending both the timing
of the pardon late Friday evening,
as Harvey made landfall, and the
decision itself.
“He’s done a great job for the
people of Arizona, he’s very strong
on borders, very strong on illegal
immigration, he is loved in Arizona,” Trump said. “I thought he
was treated unbelievably unfairly
when they came down with their
big decision to go get him, right
before the election voting started.”
He added: “I thought that was a
very, very unfair thing to do.”
Addressing the specific timing of
his pardon — which seemed to embody a classic “news dump,” coming as the nation focused on the
hurricane — the president said he
imagined that the controversial
pardon actually would attract
more media attention because of
the Harvey coverage.
“Actually in the middle of a hurricane, even though it was a Friday
evening, I assumed the ratings
would be far higher than they
would be normally,” he said.
Arpaio — the former sheriff of
Maricopa County, Ariz., who
earned a reputation for his rough
treatment of Hispanics — was
found guilty by a federal judge of
criminal contempt for ignoring a
court order to stop detaining people simply because he believed
they were illegal immigrants.
Trump seemed prepared to defend his pardon of Arpaio, a decision that drew pointed rebukes,
including by some members of his
own party. At the news conference,
when asked about Arpaio, he began reading from a sheet of paper,
rattling off other controversial
pardons under Presidents Bill
Clinton and Barack Obama.
After reading the list — which
included Marc Rich, a fugitive
businessman whose wife had donated to both the Clinton Library
foundation and the Democratic
Party — the president said that
Arpaio, whom Trump described as
“a great veteran of the military”
and a “great law enforcement person,” still had his support.
“So I stand by my pardon of Sheriff
Joe and I think the people of Arizona
who really know him best would
agree with me,” he said.

Missile over Japan ‘a much more dangerous style of test’
N. KOREA FROM A1
Japan’s upgraded missile response system swung into action,
sending emergency alerts through
cellphones and over loudspeakers
shortly after 6 a.m., warning people on the potential flight path of
the threat and advising them to
take cover.
However, Japan did not try to
shoot down the missile.
The missile appears to have
been a Hwasong-12, the intermediate-range ballistic missile
technically capable of flying 3,000
miles that North Korea has been
threatening to launch toward the
U.S. territory of Guam.
But North Korea launched
Tuesday’s missile to the east, over
Hokkaido and into the Pacific
Ocean, rather than on a southward
path toward Guam, apparently to
test its flight on a normal trajectory without crossing a “red line” of
aiming at the United States.
Still, this launch, coming after
North Korea last month launched
two intercontinental ballistic missiles theoretically capable of
reaching the U.S. mainland, underscore both Kim’s defiance of the
international community and his
determination to press ahead with
his missile program. Kim has now
ordered the launch of 18 missiles
this year alone, compared with the
16 missiles his father, Kim Jong Il,
fired during 17 years in power.
The White House did not immediately respond to the latest
provocation, but the Japanese
prime minister’s office said Trump
and Abe talked by phone for 40
minutes after the launch, agreeing
that the test was unprecedented
and that they should further increase the pressure on North Korea.
The the U.N. Security Council
confirmed it would hold an emergency meeting in New York Tuesday to discuss the latest provocation. Missile launches and nuclear
tests are banned by the U.N. Security Council, but North Korea has
paid no attention to its resolutions.
In Seoul, President Moon Jae-in,
who has promoted engagement
with Pyongyang, ordered an “overwhelming show of force” in response to the missile launch.
South Korea’s military aircraft
dropped eight bombs on a shooting range on the southern side of
the border with North Korea.
Analysts said Tuesday’s launch
marked a worrying escalation
from North Korea. “This is a much
more dangerous style of test,” said
Abraham Denmark, director of the
Asia program at the Wilson Center
and a former top East Asia official
at the Pentagon.
North Korea’s recent missile
tests had been carefully calibrated
to go nearly straight up and land in
the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, rather than overflying Japan.
“North Korean missiles have a
habit of breaking apart in flight, so
if this happened and parts of it
landed in Japan, even if it was not
North Korea’s intention, this
would amount to a de facto attack
on Japan,” Denmark said.
This missile appeared to have

site. Tuesday’s launch was the most brazen since he took power.
broken into three during flight, but
all of the parts landed in the sea.
The missile was launched at
5:58 a.m. Japan time from a site at
Sunan, north of Pyongyang and
the location of the country’s main
international airport.
U.S. intelligence agencies were
monitoring the site and had seen
signs of the impending launch
hours earlier, when they spotted
Hwasong-12 missile equipment
being moved into place.
The Hwasong-12, known to
American agencies as the KN-17, is
fired from a road-mobile launcher
— usually a modified truck — making it easy to move around the
country and launch on short notice.
North Korea has sent rockets
over Japan before, in 1998 and again
in 2009. But both times it claimed
that they were satellite launches,
and in the second case, it gave Japan
notice before the launch.
This time, there was no notice,
and analysts said that this launch
was clearly for military purposes.
The missile traveled almost
1,700 miles in total, flying over
Hokkaido at 6:06 a.m. before landing in the Pacific Ocean 730 miles
to the east of Hokkaido’s Cape Erimo at about 6:12 a.m. During this
time, it traveled through Japanese
airspace for about two minutes,
government officials said.
The Pentagon said it had detected the launch but was still in the
process of assessing it.
Japanese military aircraft and
ships headed to the landing site on
Tuesday morning to try to recover
debris from the missile, which
could yield important information
about its technical capabilities.
The Japanese broadcaster NHK
showed Patriot missiles installed
at sites around the country.
“We will make every possible
effort to protect citizens’ lives and
property,” Abe told reporters before heading into the national security council meeting.
However, the Japanese military
did not attempt to intercept the
missile. Government officials said
they could tell the missile was
heading into the sea, rather than
toward Japanese territory.
But analysts said that the PAC-3
missile defense system has a range
of less than 20 miles and is designed to intercept the missile as
it’s coming down, meaning that
even the batteries on Hokkaido
would not have been able to intercept this one.
Tuesday’s launch, on the heels
of three short-range missiles fired
Saturday, comes amid ongoing
joint exercises between the United
States and South Korean militaries, exercises that North Korea always strongly protests because it
considers them preparation for an
invasion.
The exercises, which mainly involve computer simulations rather
than battlefield maneuvers, are
due to end Thursday.
“We should expect a kinetic reaction from North Korea during the
exercises, but this pushes the boundaries of an ordinary response,” said
Daryl Kimball, the director of the
Arms Control Association.
However, Kimball said that
talks still remain the best course
for dealing with North Korea.
“The U.S. and Japan have so few
options to respond to these ballistic missile tests short of negotiations that would have North Korea
agree to halt these launches in
return for a modification of future
military exercises,” he said. “This is
why North Korea is such a problem
— there are no good options.”
Despite the international pressure, Kim has pressed ahead unrelentingly with his missile program.
His government had been
threatening to fire a missile to pass
over Japan and land near Guam,
which is home to two huge U.S.
military bases, by the middle of
this month. However, Kim later
said that after reviewing the plans,
he would “watch the Yankees a
little longer” before making a decision about whether to launch.
After the Guam threat, Trump
warned North Korea that “things
will happen to them like they never thought possible” should the
isolated country attack the United
States or its allies.
With no missile launches during the first three weeks of August,
the Trump administration had
suggested that its tough talk was
working, with Trump saying last
week at a rally in Phoenix that Kim
had come to “respect” him.

Suit alleges widespread problems in D.C. food stamp program Changes
Recipients describe
delays and confusion

BY
A NN E . M ARIMOW
Low-income D.C. residents are
not getting the help they need to
buy groceries because of widespread problems with the District’s food stamp program that
serves needy families, according
to a lawsuit filed in federal court
on Monday.
Brought by four individuals
and the nonprofit safety net organization Bread for the City, the
court filing details delays in pro-
cessing applications and the elimination of benefits without warning in violation of federal law.
The “ongoing failures mean
that households are deprived of
desperately needed assistance to
help them feed their families and
suffer hunger as a result,” according to the lawsuit filed by the
Legal Aid Society of the District of
Columbia and the National Center for Law and Economic Justice
that has brought similar cases,
including in New York, Maryland
and Arizona.
Each month, thousands of D.C.
residents apply for benefits from
the federally funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
program — also known as food
stamps. As of May, about 120,000

run by the city’s Department of

The trouble began last year,
advocates for the poor say, when
the city transitioned to a new
computer system despite warnings of potential problems from
the federal government, which
pays for the program.
Before the rollout, U.S. Department of Agriculture officials recommended more testing to avoid
backlogs and delays, and told the
city that proceeding was “against

was moving ahead “at its own
risk,” court records show.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe

There have been numerous calls

The history
that isn’t

RICKY CARIOTI/THE WASHINGTON POST
The case stems from an April
2012 traffic stop. Lyles and his
fiancee had just finished dinner
with friends in the District and
stopped at a McDonald’s to pick
up food for their children before
heading home.
As they left the parking lot of
a nearby shopping center in
their Cadillac SUV, Blanco
pulled them over, Hansel said.
Lyles asked why he was being
stopped, but the officer did not
initially answer, court documents state. Lyles repeated the
question several more times,
before the officer finally replied,
“No seat belt.”
This has
happened before.
A monument

Klan was invoked.
But this memorial, installed
more than 30 years ago in the
most touristed part of Annapolis,
was dedicated to an African slave.
It took only two days for racist
vandals to remove a bronze
plaque in honor of Kunta Kinte,
ancestor of “Roots” author Alex
Haley, back in 1981.
Left in its place was a business
card that read in big red letters:
“You have been patronized by the
KKK.” Above that, in black, it said,
“The Invisible Empire, Knights of
the Ku Klux Klan.”
Of course, it was the KKK, neoNazis and other white
supremacists who descended on
Charlottesville this month to
protest the removal of a statue of
Robert E. Lee. Their
demonstration ended in clashes
with counterprotesters that left
32-year-old Heather Heyer dead

every one of them a reminder of

some cities, including Baltimore

the heroes of the South were
removed this month in the dead
of night.

Clergy march against Trump administration as evangelical Christians meet to discuss racism

They wore clerical collars and
vestments, their heads covered with
kippahs and taqiyahs.
Religious leaders of multiple
faiths said Monday in Washington
that “the soul of the nation” is at
stake and the country must confront its racist past and present.
Their opposition to the presidential
administration is not about politics,
they said, but the moral corrosion of
the country that they think has
become increasingly evident under
President Trump’s White House.

the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

speech. It was intended to be a
unified moral rebuke to the Trump
presidency.
At the same time, evangelical
Christians who largely support
Trump convened nearby at the National Press Club to discuss how to
confront racism in the country.
But the rally brought the day’s

Riverdale Park police ordered to pay $500,000 to Tasered man
BY
LYNH BUI
The stun of the police Taser
that struck Ronnie Lyles in the
back and dropped him to the
ground lasted only about five
seconds, but he said the repercussions of the shock and his
subsequent arrest tormented
him long after the law enforcement encounter.
Lyles’s head hit the ground
with a thud after being Tasered,
leaving him in physical pain for
months.
Charged with assault, failure
to obey police and disorderly
conduct, the professional driver
had his license suspended and
lost his job while fighting his
prosecution.
And the prospect of spending
his 40s in prison left Lyles
distraught and withdrawn, an
emotional transformation that
broke up his engagement.
Five years after Lyles found
himself writhing in a parking
lot, a federal jury in Maryland
ordered two Riverdale Park police officers to pay him more
than $500,000 in damages. At
the end of a two-day civil trial
this month in U.S. District Court
in Greenbelt, the jury determined that police used excessive
force, falsely charged Lyles and
maliciously prosecuted him.
“It was a remarkable example
of a pretty blatant violation of
rights, with really no reasonable
excuse whatsoever even under
the officer’s version of events,”
said Cary Hansel, the Maryland

5 more medical pot companies are approved, while others get more time
BY
F ENIT N IRAPPIL
Maryland medical cannabis
regulators gave final approvals
Monday to three more cultivation
centers and two processing companies, and announced that they
would give 10 other companies
that missed a key deadline additional time to complete their licensing requirements.
The businesses were supposed
to have finished inspections and
final background checks within a
year of receiving preliminary approval from the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission last August.
Other businesses that applied
for licenses but were denied, and
state lawmakers allied with them,
are monitoring the final-approval
process closely, hoping that companies that missed the deadline
will be rejected and that their own
companies will get another
chance to break into the potentially lucrative legal marijuana
industry.
Commissioner Charles Smith
III, who is the state’s attorney for
Frederick County, said regulators
decided against rescinding preliminary approval for the two
growers and eight processors that
missed the deadline, and will
monitor their progress in the
coming weeks.
Patrick Jameson, executive director of the commission, said,
“They’ll look at it on a case-bycase basis.”
Maryland’s medical marijuana
program, legalized in 2013, has so
far licensed a dozen growers, six
processors and a single dispensary, in Frederick County. Retail
outlets have until December to
pass final vetting and inspections.
One company that received
preliminary approval, MaryMed,
was ultimately denied a cultivation and processing license amid
questions over a federal probe of
its out-of-state affiliates. The company is appealing that decision.
The commission is the target of
several lawsuits alleging that the
process of choosing companies
was unfair. In addition, various
state lawmakers have called for
additional licenses to be awarded
or for an overhaul of the program.
Those critics include the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland,
which objects to the dearth of
black-owned businesses in the
medical cannabis industry.
The commission has also been
probing potential conflicts between some of the companies and
the independent experts hired by
the state to review their applications.
One such company had its application for a processing license
reviewed by a team that included
the wife of one of its executives,
The Washington Post reported
last month. That company is
among the eight prospective processors that have been granted
extra time to complete the final
requirements.
Marijuana regulators on Monday also discussed expanding the
number of processor licenses,
which — unlike the number of
growers — is not capped by law.
Darrell Carrington, a lobbyist
for several prospective companies, said a bigger pool of processors would mean a broader range
of medical marijuana products
available on the market and, potentially, more minority- and female-owned companies.
But Jake Van Wingerden, who
chairs an association of prelicensed growers and processors,
said those first companies “made
assumptions and business decisions based on the original award
numbers, and we believe it is
premature to add any additional
licenses at this time before the
market is even up and running.”

Metro board may shrink
to accelerate progress
METRO FROM B1
PHOTOS BY RICKY CARIOTI/THE WASHINGTON POST
Outside Trump International Hotel, participants in the One Thousand Ministers March for Justice pause to remember Heather Heyer.
Clergy with different political views oppose racism
MARCH FROM B1
Rabbi Jonah Pesner, director of
the Religious Action Center of
Reform Judaism. “We will not be
indifferent when a sheriff is
pardoned,” a reference to Trump
pardoning former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday.
One speaker criticized evangelical Christian leaders who
continue to stand by Trump,
saying they have chosen the path
of “elitism,” “silence” and “racism.”
Vincent Herring, a 59-year-old
Baptist from Maryland, said politics have turned into issues of
morality, and people of faith with
a moral conscience need to take
the lead in challenging racism
and moral failings.
“We haven’t been in the forefront of trying to get things
done,” he said. “When you identify it as a moral issue, then that’s
what needs to be done.”
After the rally, participants
marched to the Justice Department, shutting down portions of
Constitution Avenue, 15th Street
and Pennsylvania Avenue along
the way. Martin Luther King III,
Sharpton and D.C. Council member Vincent C. Gray (D-Ward 7)
helped to lead the march.
Korey Wise, one of five young
men wrongfully accused in the
1989 beating of a female jogger
in Central Park, attended. That
year, Trump — never mentioning
the teens by name — referred to

the case in spending a reported
$85,000 to place ads in New York
newspapers demanding the restoration of the death penalty in
New York state.
Sharpton said protesters were
rallying to show that issues such
as voting rights, health care,
criminal-justice reform and economic justice are core to American values and should not be
caught up in partisan politics.
“It’s time for religious leaders
to get freed of their fears and
their political laryngitis,” he said.
“We believe in a single issue —
that is that morality is above
political parties.”
Meanwhile, the other group of
clergy at the National Press Club
also proclaimed that religious
leaders should do more to confront racism. The group members, including many who serve
on advisory boards convened by
the White House, include pastors
with conservative political views
that often don’t align with those
of the Sharpton-led protesters.
Bishop Harry Jackson, who
serves on Trump’s informal evangelical advisory board, criticized
the “hypocrisy” of the marchers,
charging that they don’t want to
work with Trump on improving
race relations.
“If I want to talk to you, I don’t
march down the street to ‘talk’ to
you, if you really want access,” he
said.
Still, Jackson said he respected Sharpton and other marchers
for acting on faith to confront
racism.
Two pastors who were part of
the conservative news conference, the Rev. Frank Amedia and
the Rev. Mark Gonzales, joined
the marchers afterward.
Amedia, who founded a group
called POTUS Shield to pray for
the president, said liberal and
conservative members of the
clergy share anti-racist goals.
“That’s our meeting point,
changing the nation,” he said.
“We may not agree on how we get
there.”
As the Minister March concluded in front of the Justice
Department, more religious
leaders delivered short sermons
on how society can rise above
what they perceive as racial and
moral problems.
“We are here for Trayvon Martin. This historical event has
brought us here,” said the Rev.
Charles Williams, president of
the National Action Network’s
Michigan chapter. “We are here
for Michael Brown. We are here
for Philando Castile. We are here
to protect voting rights. We are
here to tell our president we will
not stand for racism and bigotry.”

But both legal obstacles and political resistance could stand in the
way of LaHood’s plan.
In particular, his proposal apparently depends on the three leaders
suspending the terms of current
board members to make way for the
new board, or persuading them to
voluntarily give up their seats on an
emergency basis.
It wasn’t clear if McAuliffe, Hogan and Bowser have the power in
all cases to make such suspensions,
and whether board members
would go along with the idea.
The summit made no progress
on narrowing the three leaders’ differences over how to raise taxes or
find additional money for Metro.
General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld
says the agency needs $500 million
a year of additional revenue for new
equipment and maintenance, or
risk losing ground on safety and
reliability.
Bowser said the three didn’t talk
about the proposal that she and
some others support for a pennyper-dollar regionwide sales tax to
support Metro.
Instead, the meeting followed
LaHood’s lead in focusing on the
need to fix Metro’s governance before addressing funding. LaHood
believes that’s necessary to improve
the agency’s reputation and
chances of getting support for extra
money from legislators in Virginia,
Maryland and Congress.
“We all agreed there are some
changes in governance that need to
be made,” McAuliffe said.
The current board is “somewhat
dysfunctional,” Hogan said.
“I would support a smaller
board,” Bowser said.
Members of the group said they
all agreed that Wiedefeld is doing
an excellent job. But LaHood said
divisions on the board, aggravated
by narrow-minded priorities, are
keeping Wiedefeld from making
necessary progress.
“The current board is made up of
people with way too much parochialism, way too much interest in
their own jurisdictions or their own
particular issue,” LaHood said after
the summit. “They’re not looking at
the big picture, and the big picture
is, ‘How do we get Metro to be the
number one transit agency in the
country again.’ ”
He proposed to establish a fivemember “reform board” for three
years. The District, Maryland and
Virginia would each appoint one
member; a fourth would be appointed by the U.S. transportation
secretary. Those four would then
select a chairman, who would be
the fifth member.
The current board members’
terms would be suspended. That
would happen either by executive
action or by McAuliffe, Hogan and
Bowser using what Virginia Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne
called “the bully pulpit” to persuade
them to step aside.
The Metro board is composed of
four members each from Maryland,
Virginia, the District and the federal government. Two from each jurisdiction are voting members, and
two are alternates.
Each jurisdiction picks its members in different ways, which Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete
Rahn noted could be an obstacle to
LaHood’s plan. Two of Maryland’s
four members, for example, are
picked by Montgomery and Prince
George’s counties.
Rahn also noted that Maryland
board members are appointed for
specified terms, so it could be difficult legally to cut short their service.
LaHood deliberately did not call
for restructuring the board by rewriting the Metro Compact, the
document that dictates how the
agency is governed and financed.
Renegotiating the deal would take
years, and he believes Metro must
move quickly to fix its governance
to win support for urgently needed
increased funding.
LaHood said the new board
would work with Wiedefeld to “put
Metro back on good financial footing and develop a long-term maintenance plan.” It also would support Wiedefeld “renegotiating
some of these legacy costs,” he said,
which means trimming pension expenses and restraining other labor
costs.
LaHood’s presentation also included a comparison of Metro’s
overall labor costs with those of
comparable transit systems. As previously reported, his team’s research found they are not out of line
— thus correcting what McAuliffe
called “misperceptions” in the Virginia General Assembly.
Republicans in Richmond have
pressed for weakening union powers and taking other steps to rein in
labor costs at the agency.
Metro’s pay and benefits “are all
in line” with other systems, McAuliffe said.
LaHood mostly steered clear of
the divisive question of how the
region would raise the extra money
that Wiedefeld says it needs starting in the fiscal year that begins
July 1. While Bowser favors a regional sales tax, McAuliffe has said
reforms must come first. Hogan has
ruled out using state funds to support Metro but has left open the
possibility that Montgomery and
Prince George’s could choose to
raise taxes to support it.
“I didn’t get into how people
should raise the money,” LaHood
said.
Although he didn’t specify a figure, he indicated that he agreed
with Wiedefeld’s estimate that the
agency needs an additional
$500 million a year.
“Everybody knows what Paul is
recommending,” LaHood said.

Lyles told the officer that he

Lyles, who is black, believed

the point of being rude, Hansel
said.
“But we have every right as
Americans to question our government, even rudely,” Hansel
said. “It would have been different if there had been any threat
against the officer, but there was
no threat and no argument that
there was any threat. Here is a

Police handcuffed Lyles, took

Taser prongs removed and then
charged him with second-degree assault, failure to obey and
disorderly conduct.
Both sides agreed that Lyles
never touched or swung at any
officers, Hansel said.
In court, Blanco testified that
Lyles turned around a few times
after getting out of the car and
then balled up his hands, ac-
cording to Hansel. Blanco said
he perceived that posture to be a
fighting stance even though
Lyles’s back was to the officer,
Hansel said.
Lyles contested his case at
trial and a Prince George’s

counts, according to Hansel and
online court records.
Although Slattery did not use
the Taser on Lyles, the jury
ordered him to pay damages for

that resulted in the prosecution

Hansel said that Lyles has

continues to face psychological

off their wedding, because the
stress of facing 10 years in
prison changed Lyles’s personality.
“Just taking the officer’s story

Old poster found in a D.C. attic brings back memories of the Summer of Love
John
Kelly's
Washington
Paul Kopsick of
Fairfax County, Va.,
was helping a
buddy clean out an
attic in Chevy
Chase, D.C., when
his friend reached
for a pile of
tattered, rolled-up
posters to stuff
them in a trash
bag.
Paul has been around enough
old things to have acquired a
certain intuition. There was
something about those rolls of stiff
paper that made him stay his
friend’s hand. Paul saved the
posters and took them home.
They were dry and brittle, but
after Paul had misted them with
water to relax the fibers, he was
able to tease them open. Among
the best preserved was a trippy
illustration of a young woman’s
face made from concentric orange
circles and announcing a “Human
Be-In,” to be held April 30, 1967, on
P Street Beach in Rock Creek Park.
The poster instructed attendees
to bring flowers, friends, food,
instruments, children, feathers,
balloons, beads and, for some
reason, bananas. Far out, man. It
was like a telex from the Summer
of Love.
A Human Be-In was a “kind of
outdoor hippie costume party,”
The Washington Post helpfully
explained in its story about these
events. The nation’s first was held
Jan. 14, 1967, in San Francisco’s
Golden Gate Park.
Washington got its first Human
Be-In on April Fools’ Day, 1967, at P
Street Beach. Wrote The Post:
“The usual insignia of psychedelia
were on view — the variegated
clothing, the eyebrow-length
bangs, the lapel button (‘Reality Is
a Crutch’).”
Participants spent the day
“wandering about in the warm
sun, flying model airplanes and
balloons, blowing soap bubbles,
congregating around guitarists,
giving one another little gifts — a
doughnut, a jonquil, a sip of Coke
PAUL KOPSICK
Paul Kopsick found a “Human
Be-In” poster, among others.
— and voicing earnest sentiments
about mutual trust and love.”
A “postman-poet” named
Wilbur R. Jackson was there,
standing on a large flat stone in
the middle of Rock Creek. He told
a reporter that he was confused
about what a Be-In was, exactly.
“I come down and find a lot of
people playing guitars, wearing
what they feel like and supposedly
exchanging deep thoughts,
although I haven’t heard any,” he
said. “They keep looking around at
each other as though they’re
thinking, ‘I can’t be completely
crazy, because look at all these other
people doing the same thing.’ ”
Richard Harrington, former
Post pop music critic, said he was
probably at the Be-In advertised
on the poster — and plenty of
others. “It was like a giant cocktail
party for the counterculture,” he
said. “It was a place you could be
safe if you were a hippie and if you
wanted to be a hippie and if you
wanted to know some hippies.”
And those bananas, which were
mentioned on several posters?
Richard said they were probably a
reference to the 1966 Donovan hit
“Mellow Yellow” and also the
rumored psychedelic pleasures of
dried banana skins — “later
proved to be sadly untrue.”
Paul is glad he was able to
rescue the poster, which features
the initials of the artist: SEY or
SEV. “It’s a little snapshot from
then,” he said.
Paul, 67, wasn’t in Washington
at the time. He grew up in New
York. He actually went to
Woodstock — not the famed 1969
outdoor concert, but the one in
1968 held indoors in the town of
Woodstock, N.Y.
Three years later, Paul was in
the Army and in Vietnam.
Some of the other posters that
Paul salvaged weren’t specifically
related to Washington. One
illustrated an uneasy progression,
from a drawing of a hand
delivering a peace sign and labeled
“1967,” through a hand flipping the
bird (“1968”), to a clenched fist
(“1969”) and finally a hand
holding an AK-47 assault rifle.
By then, we were a long way
from the Summer of Love.

VIRGINIA
State’s largest school districts reopen
BY
M ORIAH B ALINGIT
More than a quarter-million
students in Northern Virginia
headed back to school Monday as
the state’s two largest school
districts — Fairfax and Prince
William — reopened their doors.
Fairfax
County
schools
opened with a new superintendent — Scott Brabrand, who
arrived in July to lead the school
system. Brabrand, a former
Lynchburg City schools superintendent and a former assistant
superintendent in Fairfax County, planned to mark his first day
of classes with a tour of Chantilly High.
Brabrand arrives as the school
system grapples with $50 million
in budget cuts. The school board
voted to raise class sizes by an
average of about half a student
per class, which means schools
dealing with overcrowding will
receive no relief. The cuts also
forced the school system to scale
back plans for teacher raises
and to levy a $50 fee on studentathletes.
This is the first time in recent
history that Fairfax County
schools have opened before Labor Day. The school system — the
state’s largest, with about
190,000 students — received a
waiver from a state law that
requires classes to start after the
holiday weekend to safeguard
Virginia’s tourism industry. The
school system has had enough
snow days over the past decade
to qualify for the waiver.
Those who supported the
change said the late start put
Fairfax County students at a
disadvantage because it would
give them less time to prepare for
standardized exams. It also
meant students would have to
remain in class for far longer
Senate president says he
regrets discord over statue
O VETTA W IGGINS
Maryland Senate President
Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., under
fire for opposing the removal of a
statue of former Supreme Court
chief justice Roger B. Taney from
the State House grounds, said
Monday that he did not intend to
cause division by defending the
author of the Dred Scott decision.
“As a student of history, I intended to respectfully state my
preference for education about
our flawed history and the greater
historical context of Justice
Taney,” Miller (D-Calvert) said in a
statement. “I do regret that sharing my historical perspective has
distracted from the larger issue we
must face together as a nation and
from my role to bring unity and
fight for a better Maryland.”
Miller’s comments came shortly
after a dozen African American ministers and community activists
staged a protest against him in a
section of Prince George’s County
that is part of the district Miller has
represented for more than 40 years.
Standing on the street in Clinton,
Md., where Miller’s family owns a
liquor store and he operates a law
firm, the demonstrators carried
handwritten signs that read “No
Bigotry, No Racism” and “Black
Lives Matter” and chanted “Miller
and Taney, both the same.”
They said Miller’s support for
Taney, known for his defense of slavery, was a show of disrespect to
voters in his district and patrons
who support his family’s businesses.
“Our state senator, who we’ve
supported overwhelming with black
votes, with Democratic votes, chose
to throw egg on the face of every one
of his supporters by supporting Roger Taney,” said the Rev. Bruce Branch,
executive director of the Maryland
Business Clergy Partnership and a
candidate for Prince George’s County Council in 2018.
House Speaker Michael E. Busch
(D-Anne Arundel) and Gov. Larry
Hogan (R) called for the removal of
the Taney statue this month, in the
wake of the deadly violence in
Charlottesville that followed a rally
in support of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Miller, the longest-serving senate president in the country, then
sent a letter to Hogan defending
Taney’s character and describing
him as a man with a “complex” past
and a long history of public service.
In his statement Monday, Miller
publicly addressed the violence in
Charlottesville for the first time, calling it “horrific and reprehensible . . .
the unspeakable acts of racists” and
reiterated his past criticism of the
“wrongheaded” Dred Scott ruling,
which said black people could never
be citizens, whether slaves or free.
The protesters said they supported calls by state Sen. C. Anthony
Muse (D-Prince George’s), to censure Miller and are seeking to meet
with Miller to discuss racial and social justice and an elimination of
pre-formed Democratic slates in
Prince George’s County primaries.
Miller spokesman, Jake Weissmann, declined to comment on the
protesters’ statements. He said Miller’s office had not received a request
for a meeting.

executive with the Human
Rights Campaign, was killed late
Saturday in a traffic collision
while operating a motor scooter
in Northeast.
Police said her scooter
collided with a vehicle making a
U-turn in the 1100 block of
Florida Avenue NE about 11:15
p.m.
Karakorn had been with the
Human Rights Campaign, a civil
rights organization, since 2001,
according to her LinkedIn page,
and was listed as its director of
consumer marketing.
The Refinery29 website
described her as a “ familiar face
in D.C.’s most creative circles”
and said she had also worked as
a DJ. Washington Life magazine
listed her in its “guide to
Washington’s most influential

Local option for public AU dismisses 18 students linked to uno∞cial frat
financing would be legal
BY
BY
R ACHEL S IEGEL
An attorney from the Maryland
attorney general’s office says it
would be legal for the state to
allow public financing for candidates on a county-by-county basis,
clearing the way for the drafting of
such a bill in the 2018 legislative
session.
Del. Marc A. Korman (D-Montgomery) contacted the attorney
general’s office in May for guidance on whether a localized approach to public financing — as
opposed to a statewide option —
would hit constitutional roadblocks. A county-by-county approach was so novel that it left
certain questions, such as how to
handle legislative districts that
don’t match up with county lines,
unanswered.
Korman called the office’s opinion “good news” and said he will
move forward with drafting a bill,
which he and other advocates say
would increase opportunities for
candidates to run for office without relying on big individual or
corporate donors.
Although Korman said he
would prefer a statewide public
financing option for legislative
candidates — a proposal that has
not advanced in past legislative
sessions — he described a countyby-county program as a way to
“inch closer to that goal.”
In a letter earlier this month,
Sandra Benson Brantley, counsel
to the General Assembly, wrote
that a local option would not violate the Equal Protection Clause or
the First Amendment rights of
candidates so long as all candidates running in a particular district have the same opportunity to
use the public financing program.
Korman said his bill will authorize
public financing in multicounty
districts only if all of the counties
in that district have public financing programs.
There is evidence of growing
support in parts of Maryland for
publicly financed campaigns.
In 2014, the Montgomery County Council unanimously voted to
adopt partial public financing for
county executive and council candidates; several 2018 hopefuls are
now seeking public matching
funds by forgoing corporate or
PAC contributions and collecting
a certain number of small-dollar
donations.
In June, the Howard County
Council approved a public financing system, which will begin in the
2022 election cycle.
Opponents of public financing
say the government should not be
in the position of funding individual campaigns. Some also have
expressed concern that a localized
option would be unfair to candidates in poorer counties, which
may be less willing to use tax revenue to generate funding pools for
political campaigns.
Robert Lipman, co-founder of
the advocacy group MoCo Voters,
which advocates for reducing the
role of big donors in politics, welcomed the idea of a county-bycounty public finance option.
“Let’s inch it forward little bit by
little bit,” Lipman said.

American University has dismissed more than a dozen students for violations of its student
code of conduct, the school said in
a statement Monday.
The violations were tied to the
students’ involvement in an underground student group known
as Epsilon Iota, according to AU’s
statement. The school, a private
institution in Northwest Washington, wrote that Epsilon Iota has
“engaged in a pattern of Student
Conduct Code violations.”
“The misconduct findings
range from physical violence, hazing, and underage drinking, to
providing assistance to and perpetuating the activities of an unrecognized group engaged in prohibited conduct,” the statement
said.
In total, 18 students were dismissed, and a 19th was placed on
disciplinary probation.
“This group has perpetuated
and systematically presented a
threat to the safety and well-being
of our students,” Fanta Aw, American University’s interim vice president of campus life, said in the
statement.
Camille Lepre, assistant vice
president of communications at
AU, said the university couldn’t
release details about where the
violations happened.
Epsilon Iota is not a recognized
student group at AU. It was previously the AU chapter of the Alpha
Tau Omega national fraternity.
Several years ago, the chapter surrendered its charter and the university formally withdrew its recognition of the group as a fraternity. Epsilon Iota has operated underground at the school, despite
AU officials discouraging students
from joining the group.
Epsilon Iota drew attention in
2014 after offensive emails and
documents that appeared to be
connected to the group leaked,
prompting a university investigation. At the time, the messages,

BY
P ETER H ERMANN
AND L UZ L AZO
The second of two men who
died after going into the Potomac
River on Sunday night near Key
Bridge in Georgetown was apparently trying to rescue the first
man, D.C. police confirmed on
Monday.
Authorities said it was still
unclear which man went into the
water first and what his motive
was for doing so. Police said one
man died at the scene and the
other man was pronounced dead
at George Washington University
Hospital.
The victims were identified as
Danny Garcia and Calvin Cerpas,
both 30 and from Manassas, Va.
Relatives for Cerpas could not be
reached.
A woman who identified herself as Garcia’s aunt did not want
to discuss the incident, saying the
victim’s mother was too dis-
traught to talk. “As you can probably imagine, this is a very difficult time,” said the woman, who
would not give her name. She
would not say why her nephew
was in the District.
The incident occurred about
8:15 p.m. just off the 3500 block of
Water Street NW, near the bridge
that connects the District with
the Rosslyn area of Arlington. It is
near an old bridge abutment
yards from a boathouse. Police
said it remains under investigation whether the first man
jumped or fell into the water.
A witness who spoke on the
condition of anonymity said one
of the two men appeared to jump
into the river from a high point
near the District side of Key
Bridge. He said the second man
then jumped in.

which included crude references
to women, sparked an outcry. An
online petition called on the university to suspend the students
who had taken part in the emails.
Since 2010, more than 60 students affiliated with Epsilon Iota

Wynn Smiley, chief executive
officer for Alpha Tau Omega, said

rate or missing benefits and a
failure to send required notices to
recipients about changes in their
benefits. Instead of processing
applications in 20 minutes
through the old system, for instance, processing took 90 minutes, city caseworkers told federal
officials.
“New case processing is often
very error-prone and leads to
system errors and the inability to
process the case timely,” according to a March 2017 letter.
As recently as last month, the
federal agency told Human Services in a follow-up letter, “we
remain concerned about the customer complaints.”
On Monday, the deputy mayor
for health and human services,
HyeSook Chung, said: “There is
no responsibility we take more
seriously than the health and
well-being of our residents. . . .
Even as we make long-overdue
improvements and overhaul District systems and processes to
best serve our constituents, we
take immense care to meet the
needs of residents seeking assistance.”
Chung said in a statement that
service center wait times have
been reduced and that the number of households served daily
has increased by 50 percent.
Frustration and hunger
D.C. Council member David
Grosso (I-At Large) said Monday
that he is frustrated that the city
agency has “tried and failed to fix
this problem” and that it should
consider a new approach.
“The victims here are the people who are hungry in our city,” he
said. “These folks are looking for
help from our government to be
able to eat.”
Under federal law, eligible
needy families are supposed to
receive food stamps within 30
days of filing an application.
When a household’s benefits are
reduced or eliminated, the city is
also required to notify residents
in advance so they can reapply or
appeal.
In the District, low-income
residents typically apply in person at one of five service centers,
where applicants are also interviewed. Because of the backlog,
residents often line up outside
the centers as early as 5 a.m.
Attorneys in the case, including from the law firm Hogan
Lovells, are seeking to bring the
lawsuit as a class action on behalf
of potentially hundreds of other
poor residents affected by the
reported glitches in the city’s system.
One of the plaintiffs, Tracey
Ross, had received $194 per
month in food stamps through
June. Ross is a seasonal worker at
Nationals Park, and her benefits
were cut off last month without
warning for “allegedly failing to
apply to recertify.” Ross said she
was never notified by the city as
required by federal law that she
needed to reapply, according to
the lawsuit.
“It’s been hard to keep food in
the house without food stamps
when I’m also trying to pay my
electricity bill and rent,” Ross said
in a declaration filed in court.
Linda Murph, who works as a
security guard, tried to reaffirm
her eligibility for food stamps in
April at the service center on H
Street NE. Murph, who earns
about $550 every two weeks, filed
the paperwork and was told by a
DHS employee that she was all
set. The city has not processed her
application, according to the lawsuit, and Murph has gone without
food stamps since May.
Increased demand for food
The transition to the new computer system in October 2016 and
associated problems coincided
with a citywide surge in demand
for food from Bread for the City.
The number of households receiving emergency food packages
increased by nearly 40 percent
through May 2017 compared with
the same period one year earlier,
according to the organization.
As a result of the city’s policies,
practices and “wrongdoing,” the
organization says in the court
filing that it “has diverted, is
diverting, and will continue to
divert scare resources” to needy
residents whose food stamp benefits were “unnecessarily delayed
or improperly processed.”
At a D.C. Council meeting in
March, Legal Aid raised similar
concerns about the transition to
the new computer system that its
representatives said is “wreaking
havoc with the District’s most
vulnerable residents as they continue to wait for hours at service
centers and their benefits are
terminated without notice.”

The University of Maryland is
suspending playing “Maryland,
My Maryland” at sporting events,
citing the need to evaluate the
state song’s pro-Confederate lyrics, a spokeswoman for the school
said.
“As part of the university’s efforts to reaffirm our values as a
campus community, we are assessing the songs that are played
at Intercollegiate Athletic events,”
U-Md. spokeswoman Katie Lawson said in a statement. “We are
suspending the playing of ‘Maryland, My Maryland’ to evaluate if it
is consistent with the values of our
institution at this time.”
The Civil War-era “Maryland,
My Maryland,” with lyrics that
mention “Northern scum,” has
previously been the subject of debate. The song is set to the tune of
“Lauriger Horatius,” more commonly known as the Christmas
song “O Tannenbaum.”
The Mighty Sound of Maryland,
the university’s marching band,
has played “Maryland, My Maryland” during its pregame performances at football games, athletic department spokesman Zack
Bolno said. It is not played at
basketball games.
According to U-Md.’ s student
newspaper, the Diamondback, the
university’s director of athletic
bands, Eli Osterloh, said the events
in Charlottesville earlier this month
led officials to start discussions
about the song. Osterloh’s comments came in a Facebook message
sent to members of the band, according to the student newspaper.
“As a result of the turmoil we all
witnessed in Charlottesville, myself, the Athletic Department, and
President’s Office began a dialogue concerning our state song,”
Osterloh wrote. “After much discussion, we agreed that based on
the history and lyrics of the song,
it should be removed from the
repertoire.”
The decision comes just weeks
after self-described white nationalists carrying torches marched
on the University of Virginia campus. After the torchlight march,
on Aug. 12, white nationalists,
neo-Nazis and members of the Ku
Klux Klan clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville. One
person was killed and many more
injured when a car plowed into a
crowd that day.
“I think it’s incredible that
we’ve been playing it for so long,”
sophomore marching band member Ben Parrish told the Diamondback. “I can’t come up with a single
reason for why the band should
continue to play a song whose
history is aligned with secession.”

“I thought, ‘The only way to get the kind of attention I wanted was through genre film,
horror genre film.’ I didn’t need stars. All I needed for it to work was to scare people.”
Tobe Hooper in a 2014 interview with the Montreal Gazette
TOBE HOOPER, 74
Horror film master behind ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’
BY
H ARRISON S MITH
Tobe Hooper, a 29-year-old Texan and film-school dropout, had
wanted to make a work of art — a
cinematic masterpiece in the
mold of his Italian idols, directors
Federico Fellini and Michelangelo
Antonioni.
Walking through a bustling
Montgomery Ward department
store days before Christmas in
1972, he found inspiration for a
grislier kind of movie in a display
of gleaming chain saws.
“I thought, ‘I know a way I could
get through this crowd really
quickly,’ ” he told Texas Monthly in
2004. “I went home, sat down, all
the channels just tuned in, the
zeitgeist blew through, and the
whole damn story came to me in
what seemed like about 30 seconds.”
The resulting film — “The Texas
Chain Saw Massacre” (1974) —
was a low-budget, blood-soaked
horrorfest made with college students, teachers, a menagerie of
dead animals and two human
skeletons, one of them real.
Most critics were disgusted,
with one Harper’s Magazine reviewer calling it “a vile little piece
of sick crap.” But its reputation
has improved ever since, winning
praise as one of the greatest horror films of all time, credited with
popularizing the slasher genre in
the 1970s.
Mr. Hooper, who went on to
direct the Steven Spielbergproduced “Poltergeist” in 1982,
died Aug. 26 at his home in Los
Angeles. He was 74.
The Los Angeles County medical examiner’s office confirmed
his death but did not provide a
cause.
Mr. Hooper (his first name is
pronounced Toby) directed nearly
20 films, numerous TV episodes
and the zombie-populated music
video for the Billy Idol song
“Dancing With Myself.” But he
remains best known for “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre,” which he
produced, directed and co-wrote.
He described it as an updated
version of the Hansel and Gretel
story and likened its villain, a
300-pound butcher known as
Leatherface, to the 1950s cartoon
duck Baby Huey. (Both characters

were stuck in childhood, he said.)
But while Mr. Hooper’s story
retained the cannibalistic element of the Brothers Grimm fable, it was far more sinister, replacing a pair of sweet-toothed
children with a group of five
young hippies, and swapping the
witch’s oven for a butcher’s hook
and a sharp-toothed power tool.
Mr. Hooper and his co-writer,
Kim Henkel, based their story in
part on Ed Gein, a Wisconsin serial killer who made masks out of
his victims’ faces. But they filled in
their own gruesome details for a
plot that pit Leatherface, played
by Gunnar Hansen, against a
blonde-haired heroine played by
Marilyn Burns.
The movie was “as violent and
gruesome and blood-soaked as
the title promises,” Roger Ebert
wrote in a two-star review. “It’s
also without any apparent purpose, unless the creation of disgust and fright is a purpose. And
yet in its own way, the movie is
some kind of weird, off-the-wall
achievement.”
Despite being banned in England and other countries, it went
on to gross more than $30 million
and became a mainstay at drive-in
theaters and a favorite of horror
directors such as John Carpenter.
The movie, Carpenter once
said, “pacified my soul.”
William Tobe Hooper was born
in Austin, on Jan. 25, 1943. His
mother reportedly went into labor
while at a movie theater, and his
father was a film buff who owned
a hotel. His parents divorced
when he was young, and his father
died when he was a teenager.
Mr. Hooper began shooting
movies at 3, using his father’s
8-millimeter camera, and studied
film at the University of Texas
before dropping out after two
years. For his first major work, he
shot and directed a publictelevision documentary of the folk
group Peter, Paul and Mary. He
followed that with a more drug-
infused film about the 1960s
counterculture, “Eggshells,” before turning to horror.
“I thought, ‘The only way to get
the kind of attention I wanted was
through genre film, horror genre
film,’ ” he told the Montreal Gazette in 2014. “I didn’t need stars.
All I needed for it to work was to
scare people.”
Mr. Hooper directed “Salem’s
Lot,” a 1979 CBS miniseries based
on a vampire novel by Stephen
King, before making “Poltergeist,”
a hit about a family that moves
into a haunted house where demons emerge from a TV set.
The movie was nominated for
three Academy Awards, but credit
for its success was given by many
critics not to Mr. Hooper, but to
Spielberg, who co-wrote the movie and was credited with developing its story and picking its cast.
Mr. Hooper directed a 1986 sequel to “The Texas Chain Saw
Massacre,” with Dennis Hopper as
a retired, revenge-seeking Texas
Ranger, although the film proved
less successful than its predecessor.
A half-dozen sequels followed
from different directors, while Mr.
Hooper worked on horror films
including “Invaders From Mars”
(1986), a remake of William Cameron Menzies’s science-fiction
classic, and “The Mangler” (1995),
which adapted a King story about
a murderous ironing machine.
A complete list of survivors was
not immediately available.
Mr. Hooper insisted that “The
Texas Chain Saw Massacre” was
not nearly as bloody as many critics said it was, pointing out that
many of his quick cuts were designed to hide the movie’s most
violent moments. He told Texas
Monthly that he frequently consulted the Motion Picture Association of America, Hollywood’s rating agency, in an effort to ensure a
PG rating.
“ ‘I have this scene where a girl
gets hung on a meat hook.’ Long
silence. ‘What could I do?’ Long
silence. ‘I guess it would help me if
there was no penetration shot.’
‘That would be correct.’ ‘And no
blood?’ ‘That would help.’ ”
Mr. Hooper decided to keep the
blood, and his movie was rated R.

JOHN ABERCROMBIE, 72
Influential guitarist applied rock-and-roll swagger to loose rhythms of jazz
BY
HARRISON SMITH
John Abercrombie, an influential jazz guitarist and composer who came to prominence
in the 1970s with a lyrical,
improvisatory style that applied
the swagger of rock-and-roll to
the loose rhythms of jazz, died
Aug. 22 at a hospital in Cortlandt, N.Y. He was 72.
Marc Copland, a friend and
pianist who performed with Mr.
Abercrombie at his final shows
in late 2016, said Mr. Abercrombie had a stroke in May and had
been ill for several months.
A leading guitarist of jazz
fusion’s heyday in the 1970s, Mr.
Abercrombie sported a thick
mustache and wavy hair, playing stringed instruments including the acoustic mandolin
and the Roland guitar synthesizer, a device he once described
as a “red electric safety pin.”
While his sound was sometimes wildly experimental, incorporating electric squawks
and heavy reverb, Mr. Abercrombie’s four-decade career
was largely defined by gentle,
impressionistic guitar melodies.
His music helped his longtime home, ECM Records, acquire a reputation as a haven
for jazz musicians with a reflective, refined sound.
Mr. Abercrombie played with
greats including saxophonists
Jan Garbarek and Charles
Lloyd, trumpeters Enrico Rava
and Kenny Wheeler, and fellow
guitarist Ralph Towner, whose
classical style he accompanied
on a pair of soaring guitar
records, “Sargasso Sea” (1976)
and “Five Years Later” (1981).
His subtle fretwork and understated stage presence as a
bandleader led some critics and
musicians to compare him to
jazz guitarist Jim Hall, who
died in 2013 and whom Mr.
Abercrombie cited as a key

influence, along with Wes
Montgomery and pianist Bill
Evans.
“He was really concerned
with contributing to the overall
sound of the group rather than
calling attention to himself,”
Copland said. “He used to like
to say onstage, ‘I like to pretend
I’m a sideman in my own group.’
It would always get a chuckle,
but he was kind of being serious.”
John Laird Abercrombie was
born Dec. 16, 1944, in Rye, N.Y.,
according to Copland — some
say the birthplace was nearby
Port Chester — and grew up in
Greenwich, Conn.
When he was 14, his parents
bought him an acoustic guitar
with steel strings “like telephone cables,” Mr. Abercrombie
told NPR, and he began imitating the rollicking style of Chuck
Berry before turning to jazz.
He studied at Berklee College
of Music in Boston — in part, he
said, to avoid the Vietnam War
draft — before moving to New
York, where he gained notice
playing with drummer Chico
Hamilton and contributed metallic guitar riffs to one of the
strangest children’s albums
ever made, “The Stark Reality
Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s
Music Shop” (1970).
The record was a piece of
psychedelic jazz rock in the
mold of Miles Davis’s landmark
album “Bitches Brew” — and
aimed, ostensibly, at the “Sesame Street” crowd. It flopped but
was rediscovered decades later
by hip-hop artists including
Schoolboy Q and the Black Eyed
Peas.
Mr. Abercrombie performed
with Dreams, a short-lived but
pioneering jazz-rock outfit, before leading a group of his own
on “Timeless,” his 1975 debut
with ECM and one of his most
acclaimed records.
The album featured keyboardist Jan Hammer, who
went on to score the theme to
“Miami Vice,” and drummer
Jack DeJohnette, who had
played on “Bitches Brew.”
The title track, music critic
Larry Rohter wrote in a review
for The Washington Post, was “a
12-minute masterpiece that
conveys the feeling of drifting
and floating dreaminess better
than any recorded piece since
Miles Davis’ ‘In a Silent Way.’ ”
Mr. Abercrombie followed it
with “Gateway” (1976), which
featured DeJohnette and bass-
ist Dave Holland in a group that
intermittently toured and recorded for the next 20 years.
“He used to like to say
onstage, ‘I like to
pretend I’m a sideman
in my own group.’ ”
Pianist Marc Copland
The Gateway trio was one of
Mr. Abercrombie’s best-known
projects, but he said his most
enjoyable ensemble may have
been a recently formed quartet
with Copland on piano, bassist
Drew Gress and drummer Joey
Baron. The outfit assembled for
the 2013 album “39 Steps” and
for “Up and Coming,” released
in January.
“In a world of rampant populism, the description ‘musicians’ musician’ might become
even more of a backhand compliment, but if anyone can defend its virtues, it’s American
guitarist John Abercrombie,”
jazz critic John Fordham wrote
in a review for Britain’s Guardian. “The whole album is the
quintessence of jazz power in
reserve.”
Mr. Abercrombie’s survivors
include his wife of 31 years, the
former Lisa Abram.
Mr. Abercrombie was a lecturer in jazz at Purchase College, part of the State University
of New York system, and said
his musical style was in a
constant state of development.
“I am playing the music I
want to play for now. The only
thing that’s not right about it is
it’s not as good as I want it yet,”
he said in “What Is This Thing
Called Jazz?,” a 2001 collection
of interviews by consultant Batt
Johnson.
“I want to become like Miles
[Davis] was and Louis Armstrong. I want to be vocal on the
instrument without necessarily
being technical. . . . The thing
that gets you first is their music,
just the sound of it. Then afterward you realize how difficult it
was to play what they played.”

SEAN O’CALLAGHAN, 62
IRA assassin became Irish police informant
BY
FRANK MICELOTTA/GETTY IMAGES
Thomas Meehan, right, and Mark O’Donnell accept the 2003 Tony
Award for best book of a musical for “Hairspray.”
THOMAS MEEHAN, 88
Wrote books for ‘Annie,’
‘Producers,’ ‘Hairspray’
BY
M ATT S CHUDEL
Thomas Meehan, a onetime
magazine writer who became a
three-time Tony winner on
Broadway, writing the plot and
dialogue for the blockbuster hit
musicals “Annie,” “The Producers” and “Hairspray,” died
Aug. 22 at his home in New York
City. He was 88.
The cause was cancer, said his
wife, Carolyn Meehan.
Mr. Meehan once aspired to be
a serious novelist, but he turned
toward journalism and humor
because “whenever I wrote Faulkneresque, it came out lousyesque.”
He worked for a decade at the
New Yorker, where he wrote one
of the magazine’s classic humor
pieces, “Yma Dream,” about an
imaginary cocktail party for the
Peruvian singer Yma (pronounced EE-ma) Sumac. In a feat
of dazzling wordplay, Mr. Meehan
portrayed a beleaguered host
opening his door to a series of
guests, all with disyllabic first
names, including Ava Gardner,
Abba Eban, Ida Lupino, Ilya Ehrenburg and on and on: “The bell
rings again, and I am pleased to
find Oona O’Neill, Charlie Chaplin’s wife, at the door. She is alone.
I bring her into the room. ‘Oona,
Yma. Oona, Ava. Oona, Abba,’ I
say.”
Finally, actress Uta Hagen
joins the party, and the roundrobin introductions become a
blizzard of dadaist nonsense:
“Uta, Yma; Uta, Ava; Uta, Oona;
Uta, Ona; Uta, Ida; Uta, Ugo; Uta,
Abba; Uta, Ilya; Uta, Ira; Uta,
Aga; Uta, Eva.”
Director Martin Charnin asked
Mr. Meehan to adapt “Yma
Dream” for an Emmy-winning
1970 television special featuring
actress Anne Bancroft. While
working on the project, Mr. Meehan met Bancroft’s husband,
writer-director Mel Brooks.
“All the major people in my
life,” he later said, “and we met on
the same day.”
Two years later, Charnin asked
Mr. Meehan to help write a musical based on the comic strip “Little Orphan Annie.”
“I said it was a horrible idea,”
Mr. Meehan told the Toronto Star
in 2004. “Fortunately, I changed
my mind.”
As a devotee of the novels of
Charles Dickens, Mr. Meehan began to sense the dramatic possibilities in a story about Annie, a
poor girl from an orphanage, the
mogul Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks
— and Annie’s dog, Sandy. With
heart-tugging songs by Charles
Strouse (and lyrics by Charnin),
“Annie” opened on Broadway in
1977 and ran for six years.
Mr. Meehan won a Tony Award
for best book of a musical. In
Broadway parlance, the “book” is
the plot development and spoken
dialogue of a musical — “everything that isn’t sung,” as Mr.
Meehan put it.
“A bad book can kill a musical,”
he told the Los Angeles Times in
2004. “You have to tell a coherent,
somewhat logical story, and you
have to create characters who the
audience cares about. If they
don’t care about them, then they
can sing all they want, but it won’t
matter.”
After a few Broadway flops, Mr.
Meehan joined forces with
Brooks to write the screenplay of
1983’s “To Be or Not to Be,” a
remake of a 1942 movie spoofing
Nazi Germany. Four years later,
they collaborated on “Spaceballs,”
another Brooks vehicle that was a
sendup of sci-fi films.
The pair later sought to remake
Brooks’s 1967 film “The Producers” as a musical for the stage.
The film ended with the two lead
characters, scheming theatrical
producer Max Bialystock and accountant Leo Bloom, in prison.
“The first thing I said to Mel
was, ‘It can’t end like the movie
with the two guys in jail,’ ” Mr.
Meehan said in 2004. “ ‘If they
want to be a success in Broadway,
then they’ve got to make it by the
end.’ ”
Mr. Meehan changed the beginning and ending, eliminated
some characters and even added
a few jokes not in the original.
With Nathan Lane and Matthew
Broderick in the starring roles,
the revamped “The Producers”
opened in 2001 to sold-out houses
and rave reviews. It ran for six
years, and its 12 Tony Awards —
including one for the book by Mr.
Meehan and Brooks — are still
the most in Broadway history.
The pair later worked together
on a filmed version of “The Producers,” thus transforming a
movie into a stage play and back
into a movie.
Then in his 70s, Mr. Meehan
was suddenly the hottest writer in
musical theater. In 2002, he had
another Broadway hit, collaborating with Mark O’Donnell on
“Hairspray,” a musical adaptation
of a 1988 film by John Waters.
The play, about a Baltimore
teenager who becomes a celebrity
on a TV dance show, won Mr.
Meehan his third Tony and became an even bigger box-office
hit than “Annie” and “The Producers,” running for 2,642 performances from 2002 to 2009.
Mr. Meehan’s later projects included 2007’s “Young Frankenstein” with Brooks, a 2010 stage
adaptation of the Will Ferrell
holiday film “Elf ” and a 2014
musical version of the 1976 boxing movie “Rocky,” on which he
shared the writing credit with
Sylvester Stallone.
“Underdogs getting what they
want in the end,” Mr. Meehan said
in 2004. “That’s what all my
shows are about.”
Thomas Edward Meehan was
born Aug. 14, 1929, in Ossining,
N.Y. He was in his early teens
when his father died; his mother
was a nurse.
Mr. Meehan graduated in 1951
from Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., and then served as an
Army intelligence officer for two
years. After short-lived jobs in
journalism, he joined the staff of
the New Yorker in the mid-1950s
and became a colleague of several
of his literary idols, including S.J.
Perelman and James Thurber.
In the mid-1960s, Mr. Meehan
wrote for the U.S. version of “That
Was the Week That Was,” an early
forerunner of satirical TV programs about current events such
as “The Daily Show.” He lived in
France in the late 1960s while
working on a novel that was never
published.
His first marriage, to Karen
Termohlen, ended in divorce.
Survivors include his wife of 30
years, the former Carolyn Capstick of New York; two children
from his first marriage; three
stepchildren; a brother; and six
grandchildren.
Mr. Meehan’s other theatrical
projects included a musical version of “I Remember Mama”
(1979); “Bombay Dreams” (2004),
set in the world of Bollywood
movies; a 2008 adaptation of the
Waters film “Cry-Baby”; and a
2012 musical about Chaplin.
Mr. Meehan also collaborated
with poet J.D. McClatchy and
composer Lorin Maazel on the
libretto for an opera treatment of
George Orwell’s novel “1984,” first
performed in 2005 in London.
Shortly before his death, he
completed a musical version of
the 1941 Barbara Stanwyck film
“The Lady Eve.”
“I think of [my career as] just
one thing after another,” Mr. Meehan told the New York Observer.
“Just bumbling along like you
don’t know what’s around the
next turn, which is what I always
wanted.”

H ARRISON S MITH
Sean O’Callaghan, an assassin
and bomb-maker for the Irish
Republican Army who became
one of the organization’s highestranking informants for the Irish
police, and who was credited
with foiling a 1983 plot to assassinate Prince Charles and Princess
Diana at a Duran Duran concert
in London, died Aug. 23 at age
62.
A friend, writer Ruth Dudley
Edwards, said Mr. O’Callaghan
drowned in a pool in Kingston,
Jamaica, where he was visiting
his daughter. The Jamaica Constabulary Force, the national police, could not immediately confirm the details of his death.
Mr. O’Callaghan’s early years
were guided by a lesson his
grandmother imparted when he
was 9: “When you shoot a British
policeman, dig him up and shoot
him again because you can never
trust them.”
Within a decade, Mr. O’Callaghan would take her advice to
heart, firing eight shots at an
alleged “torture chief ” for the
Royal Ulster Constabulary, the
British-aligned police force in
Northern Ireland. The police officer, Peter Flanagan, was sitting
at a bar when he was killed,
reading the racing pages of the
Irish Independent.
Mr. O’Callaghan later learned
that Flanagan had in all likelihood never tortured anyone —
the officer had testified against
British police brutality at the
European Court of Human
Rights — and said the operation
shook his faith in the IRA, a
militant group the British government classified as a terrorist
organization.
He had followed his father
into the guerrilla group at 15, one
of many young Catholics who
joined in the late 1960s in an
effort to expel the British from
Northern Ireland and unite the
region with its sovereign counterpart to the south, the Republic
of Ireland.
Soon, Mr. O’Callaghan was
training other teenagers in
weapons and explosives. He participated in 70 robberies and
attacks on the British and their
allies, by his count, including a
May 1974 assault on an Ulster
Defense Regiment barracks that
resulted in the death of Eva
Martin, a 28-year-old private. Mr.
O’Callaghan said he fired the
mortar shell that killed her.
A breaking point came the
1997 PHOTO BY KARIN COOPER/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sean O’Callaghan pleaded guilty to two murders and 40 other IRArelated crimes. He was sentenced to 539 years and released in 1996.
following year, he said. Kevin
McKenna, reportedly the organization’s second-in-command, remarked that he hoped a Protestant woman killed in another
attack was pregnant so that the
IRA might get “two Prods for the
price of one.”
Mr. O’Callaghan left for London later that year, started a
cleaning business and married a
Protestant woman. It was a
short-lived attempt to leave behind the three-decade conflict
known as the Troubles.
“The IRA wasn’t really after
the British,” Mr. O’Callaghan told
the Los Angeles Times in 1997,
recounting his disillusionment.
“It was the guy down the road
who had the better land that his
ancestors had taken from the
Catholics. The bitterness was
there all the time, rooted and
deep. What they really wanted to
do was to murder their neighbors. It was tribalism.”
He returned to the IRA in
1976, this time as an informant
for the Irish police, the Garda
Siochana. According to “A Secret
History of the IRA,” a 2002
account by journalist Ed Moloney, Mr. O’Callaghan helped
train and arm IRA members as a
leader of the group’s Southern
Command.
He was credited with breaking
up several major plots, including
a seven-ton shipment of guns
and ammunition that had traveled from Boston aboard the
Marita Ann, a fishing trawler,
before being intercepted off Ireland’s southwestern coast.
Soon after, he was reportedly
named leader of the IRA’s operations in England and charged
with
assassinating
Prince
Charles and his wife, Diana, in
their box at a London charity
concert in July 1983. He had been
given detonators and 25 pounds
of explosives, he told the New
York Times in 1996. The operation, he said, “would have
worked” if he had not scuttled it
at the last minute.
Mr. O’Callaghan was also
linked to the 1985 murder of
John Corcoran, an alleged police
informant. Mr. O’Callaghan said
that the IRA ordered him to kill
Corcoran and that he did so to
protect his cover, but he later
repudiated the claim, saying he
had admitted to the murder only
to trigger a police investigation.
By 1988, Mr. O’Callaghan
sensed growing suspicion from
other IRA members and turned
himself in to the British police.
He eventually pleaded guilty to
two murders and an additional
40 IRA-related crimes and was
sentenced to 539 years in prison.
“If you’ve murdered people
and blown up their businesses,
you have to pay for it,” he told the
New Statesman in 1998. “Just
saying sorry isn’t much cop.”
Mr. O’Callaghan was released
in 1996 — in part, critics said, to
serve as a mouthpiece for conservative British politicians who
opposed peace negotiations
among Britain, Ireland and parties including Sinn Fein, the
IRA’s political arm.
“I wish I could be confident
about the prospects for peace,”
he remarked at the time, “but I
have sat behind too many closed
doors with too many of the
present leadership to be conned
by the smooth presentations.”
The Good Friday Agreement
was ultimately signed in 1998,
resulting in a power-sharing system in Northern Ireland, and
gradual disarmament for the IRA
and other militant groups.
Mr. O’Callaghan was born in
the southwestern town of Tralee,
in County Kerry, on Oct. 10, 1954,
according to Edwards, although
other sources list his birth date
as Jan. 26.
His marriage ended in divorce
in 1987. Survivors include a son
from his marriage and a daughter from a subsequent relationship.
Mr. O’Callaghan wrote a popular memoir, “The Informer”
(1998), and a 2016 biography of
James Connolly, a turn-of-thecentury Irish republican leader.
Settling in London, Mr. O’Callaghan said he would not be
surprised if the IRA eventually
killed him for spying and speaking out.
“I kind of accept that the IRA
has the right to kill me,” he told
the Los Angeles Times. “If they
succeed, I would say, ‘Fair dues.’ ”

CHARLIE ROBERTSON, 83
A mayor whose past followed him into o∞ce
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Charlie Robertson, a former
mayor of York, Pa., who was
acquitted of murder in the killing
of a black woman during racial
unrest in 1969, died Aug. 24 at a
nursing home in York.
He had been diagnosed with
cancer last month, said his son
Chhayrong Chhum. He was 83.
Mr. Robertson abandoned his
campaign for a third term as
mayor in 2001, days after being
arrested on charges that as a
patrolman on the city force, he
incited a group of white youths
who subsequently ambushed a
vehicle and shot and killed Lillie
Belle Allen.
“He never talked about the
trial at all,” Chhum said in a
phone interview. “He focused on
living the rest of his life by
spending time with us, especially
with the grandkids.”
Mr. Robertson was well into a
second term when authorities in
2000 convened a grand jury to
investigate Allen’s shotgun killing, as well as the unsolved fatal
shooting of Henry Schaad, a
white patrolman who was killed
during the riots.
A day after winning the Democratic primary for a third term,
Mr. Robertson announced that
prosecutors had informed him he
would be charged with murder
the next day.
“Murder is the charge. Murder
is the charge,” Mr. Robertson
said. “I’m standing here in disbelief as to the charge, which they
must prove. And to this, I maintain my innocence.”
Allen, a 27-year-old seamstress
and mother of two from Aiken,
S.C., was in York to visit family.
She was headed to buy groceries
with four relatives when they
drove into an area controlled by a
group known as the Newberry
Street Boys gang.
Seven of the 10 white men
charged with Allen’s death pleaded guilty or no contest to lesser

charges, but Mr. Robertson and
two others went to trial. The
other two were found guilty of
second-degree murder and sentenced to prison time.
“He focused on living
the rest of his life by
spending time with us.”
Chhayrong Chhum,
Charlie Robertson’s son
Mr. Robertson cried after the
verdict was read.
“It’s been two years,” he said.
“I’m a little tired and I’m going
home.”
Charles H. Robertson was born
in York on April 12, 1934, and
served in the Army before joining
the York police. He later served
on the York school board and
coached and refereed youth
sports.
Racial conflict plagued the city
in 1968 and exploded the following year, when more than 60
people were injured and entire
city blocks burned down. The
mayhem raged for 10 days before
state troopers and hundreds of
National Guard members with
tanks were able to restore calm.
Prosecutors had argued Mr.
Robertson gave ammunition to at
least one of the gunmen to
avenge Schaad’s shooting three
days earlier. A co-defendant who
pleaded guilty in the case, Rick
Knouse, testified Robertson gave
him rifle ammunition and told
him to “kill as many” blacks as he
could.
Mr. Robertson admitted to
shouting “white power!” at a
gang rally in a city park a day
earlier, but denied other accusations. He was the first officer to
arrive at the shooting scene, but
neither he nor three other officers disarmed gang members,
took witness statements or filed a
report.
“Everyone knew who was involved,” Mr. Robertson told Time
magazine the year before his
trial. “But everyone just thought
it was even. One black had been
killed and one white — even.”
Two black men were convicted
of second-degree murder in 2003
for Schaad’s killing.
According to an obituary published in York newspapers, Mr.
Robertson’s survivors include his
son; a brother; and two grandchildren.

WILLIAM WHITE
Happy 100th Anniversary
Happy 100th Wedding Anniversary to our
parents and grandparents, William and
Helen White. You raised 18 children and
sent six of your sons off to serve in World
War II. With the help of God, they all came
home safe. Your other four sons served
their country during the Korean and the
cold War. You were so proud of them.
Your eight daughters served their country
by working for the government and again
how proud Daddy and Momma were of us.
You gave us so much including our days at
the cottage at North Beach and the many
reunions we had there. It provided a place
for all the children and grandchildren to
connect for reunions or just to drop in on
Sundays. Crab feasts in the yard or a poker
game going on at another picnic table. Oh
the wonderful memories and values we
carry and have shared with our children
and grandchildren.
You did good Momma and Daddy and we
miss you and love you.
Your children, grandchildren, and
great grandchildren

husband John fell in love with the continent

learning from their tour guide and friend that
the construction of a school would have the

EVELYN DUGAN SOMMERS
Evelyn Dugan Sommers, a longtime resident
of Bethesda, MD passed away August 25,
2017. Evelyn was a kind, caring, independent person who championed the rights of
women and liberal values. She was much
loved by her family and her many friends.
Born and raised in Ft. Worth, Texas, Evelyn
was proud of the values instilled in her by her
parents, Lillian and William Dugan: honesty,
integrity, the importance of hard work, and
respect for all people.
She earned a journalism degree from the
University of Texas at Austin and later a
Masters of Business Administration from
Southern Methodist University. While at
The University of Texas, Evelyn met and fell
in love with her life partner and devoted
husband, John Paul Sommers. She and John
shared many interests, including a love for
animals (especially their cats), long nature
walks, bird watching, travel, and the arts
(especially art museums, classical music,
and the opera). Evelyn found her calling
when she joined the District of Columbia
Nurses Association as Executive Director in
1980. She led the Association until her
retirement in 2002. She took great pride
in the Association’s accomplishments in
improving the working conditions for nurses
and for all working women. After her retirement, Evelyn became a devoted volunteer
for the YWCA – National Capital Area and
fully embraced the YWCA mantra of “Eliminating Racism/Empowering Women”. She
served the YWCA in many leadership capacities, including President, Vice President and
Member of the Board of Directors, with her
involvement ending only due to her recent
illness.

Aug. 22, 1831, led 70 men to kill
his master, his wife and their
children with axes and then
dozens of other whites. In his
home state, all he gets is a
roadside marker on the site of the
insurrection.
Compare that with the massive
statues along Monument Avenue
in Richmond, the former capital
of the Confederacy, where Gen.
Robert E. Lee commands a 60foot-high view of the city. What
should happen to him and
Confederate rebels Jefferson
Davis, Stonewall Jackson,
Matthew Fontaine Maury and
J.E.B. Stuart? Should the city
remove them or continue adding
more statues that recognize the
contributions of African
Americans, as it has already
started to do? Maybe Nat Turner
should get a statue on Monument
Avenue.
It took 18 years of debate and

erect a statue of Denmark Vesey, a
freed slave who was a founder of
Emanuel AME Church and was
executed for organizing a foiled
slave revolt in Charleston in 1822.

officials believe damage they
found on the Vesey statue may
have been the result of vandals
trying to topple it.
This is what happens when
America tries to remind itself of
its bloody past.
Back in Annapolis, neither the
culprit nor the missing Kunta
Kinte memorial was ever found.
But the people of Annapolis
rallied to raise enough money to
replace the plaque and add a
sculpture of author Alex Haley
reading to a trio of multiethnic
children.
It’s now a beloved Annapolis
fixture. Kids sit in Haley’s lap and
pose alongside the bronze
children. And on an August
morning, it did exactly what
every memorial, monument and
statue should do.
“You must hear me now, with
more than your ears!” Harvey
Kramer read to three of this
grandchildren. He was reading a
quote from Haley’s book, and he
explained to the three little imps
swirling around him that this is
“a part of American history.”

Naval Academy and was showing

most of his classmates were
white, like him. And there was
little conversation at the time
about diversity in history.
The memorial to Haley and
Kunta Kinte gave him that chance
to talk to his children about a
painful piece of U.S. history.
Another family with children
frolicking around the statue said
the memorial sparked
conversation about the time they
watched the seminal TV

when, exactly, they should begin
talking with their young children

Sure, those exist. But not many.
Statues to African Americans on
American soil include ones to
Duke Ellington, Jackie Robinson
and Martin Luther King Jr., but
we have done little to remember
the millions of Americans who
lived as slaves and built the
economic powerhouse that the
United States quickly became.
Our African American
memorials are uplifting, friendly,
even sanitized.
Throughout the world, there
are starker and more powerful
monuments to the human terror
that was the slave trade and the
astounding resilience of those
who survived it.
Barbados has a powerful
sculpture of a man showing his
broken chains. It is known as
Bussa, the name of the leader of
that island’s 1816 slave revolt. The
statue went up in 1985.
Tanzania has a haunting
sculpture unveiled in 1998 that
shows forms with chains around
their necks, slightly lowered into
the ground, the way slaves were
kept at the nearby slave market.

the quote by poet Maya Angelou

together, sometimes died
together, and our lifeless bodies
thrown overboard together.”
It was too harsh, some city
leaders said.
“Maya Angelou’s description
was a little far out,” said David

member. “I myself wouldn’t want
to be reminded of that every time
I look at it. History . . . can hurt.”
Yes, the truth hurts.
The quote stayed. And
certainly it started many, many

Q&A
Ser Davos
can’t wait
to learn his
fate, either
BY
S TEPHANIE M ERRY
On “Game of Thrones,” Ser
Davos Seaworth has turned into
a beloved character, and not just
because he has the most gorgeously expressive eyebrows in
all of Westeros. Over the course
of seven seasons, he’s lost a son,
learned to read, witnessed the
birth of a shadow baby and
shifted his allegiances from Stannis Baratheon — after the wouldbe king’s untimely death — to Jon
Snow. It’s been a wild ride.
Following the airing of the
Season 7 finale, the actor who
brings Davos to life, the very
lively Liam Cunningham, called
from his home in Dublin (“That’s
one of the reasons I love this job
— Westeros is an hour and a half
from my front door!”) to discuss
this season’s big shockers, the
incredible speed with which Davos travels and how he hopes life
will turn out for his much-loved
character.
This interview has been edited
for clarity and obviously discusses plot details from the show.
Spoilers ahead.

warrensburg, mo. — Only a
handful of President Trump’s supporters showed up to Sen. Claire
McCaskill’s town hall here in rural Missouri, but they definitely
made their presence known.
One arrived early so he could
park his red Dodge pickup with
its “Make America Great Again”
and “Don’t Tread on my Gun
Rights” stickers directly in front
of the American Legion hall’s entrance, where nobody could miss
it. Another, a squat man with a
graying goatee, volunteered for
the task of plucking written questions for McCaskill out of a basket; he screened out anything less
than a zinger and gave the first
series of questions to Debbie Phillips, a 65-year-old Republican in a
cropped white denim jacket who
wasn’t afraid to stand up in a
room full of Democrats to voice
her displeasure.
“All I’m hearing on TV is that
because I’m a white conservative
woman, I’m a racist, a white supremacist and a neo-Nazi,” she
said. “Somebody besides me has
to be sick of this.”
The crowd booed, but McCaskill wasn’t here to go head to
head with Trump supporters. She
was here to try to win them over.
“First of all, let me say,” McCaskill responded, her voice made
tinny by the microphone, “I don’t
think anybody in this room thinks
you’re a racist. If you’re being
stereotyped that way that’s just as
unfair as stereotyping every black
person as a terrorist for Black
Lives Matter.”

Maybe because we were told

Over the course of his massive
autobiographical novel “My
Struggle” — whose sixth and final
volume won’t be published in
English until next year — Karl
Ove Knausgaard has tried to
make sense of his life by bearing
meticulous witness to it, stockpiling and scrutinizing his memories in hopes of gaining perspective on how they all add up.
In his latest book, though, he
shifts the focus to the world
around him. Written while awaiting the birth of his fourth child,
“Autumn” — the first of a planned
quartet based on the seasons — is
intended as a random field guide
to life on Earth for the newest
addition to his family. It contains
dozens of mini-essays on the different things his child will encounter. These include apples,
wasps, plastic bags, the sun, loneliness, chewing gum, cars, lice,
Van Gogh, Flaubert and various
other features of the landscape,
society, and what goes in and
what comes out of the body. It’s a
diet-plan version of “The Anatomy of Melancholy,” a solitary book
that is ultimately about the need
for others.
It is also a work consumed by
the same question that haunts the
author’s voluminous life story.
“What makes life worth living?”
he asks his prenatal correspondent. “No child asks itself that
question. To children life is selfevident. Life goes without saying:
Whether it is good or bad makes
no difference.” It’s up to Knausgaard to take up the task himself
— to go back to the beginning, to

should be prosecuted. Single-payer health care is a bad idea, and so
is trying to impeach Trump, even
if he had recently suggested that
protesters standing with Nazis
and white supremacists were
“very fine people.”
“My job is not to fight the
president,” she has been saying at
town halls all over the state this
summer. “My job is to fight for
Missourians.”
T
his is what it’s like being a
moderate in immoderate
times. After Trump’s election, populists in McCaskill’s party tried to grab the wheel and pull
hard to the left. It was Bernie
Sanders’s party now, they said,
and good riddance to the insiders
and horse-traders. Prominent
Democrats started cursing in
speeches, trying to harness the
fires of liberal outrage that the
president has been all too glad to
splash with gasoline.
And yet here was McCaskill,
the most endangered Democrat
in the Senate, for whom “resistance” politics are a liability. A
Democrat in Trump Country, the
Missourian represents the oftforgotten flank of the party’s twoyear battle to reclaim Congress.
To hold the line, she is running as
an experienced politician who,
she’ll have you know, has been
ranked as the least ideologically
pure.
This approach makes her seem
like a relic of a long-gone Washington, where flexibility and the
art of reaching across the aisle
were desirable traits in an elected
official. Nowadays, seeking the
middle can make a politician —
even one introduced at all her
town halls as “the most candid
member of the Senate” — appear
unwilling to take tough stands.
On this day, for example, hours
after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for Confederate statues to be removed
from the Capitol, McCaskill
wouldn’t say whether she agreed.
“I think Nancy Pelosi should
decide who the statues are for
California,” she said when asked
by a reporter. “That’s a decision
each state has to make.”
So what about monuments in
Missouri?
“I think it should be up to each
local community,” she said.
Is there a moral argument to
keep them up or take them down?
“I understand why they cause
pain,” she said. “I also understand
why we always have to be reminded of the ugliness of our history,
because it keeps us from repeating it.”
And if that sounds like a politician playing both sides — well, if
McCaskill has any chance of pulling out a win in 2018, in a state
that voted overwhelmingly for
Trump, she’ll need to rely on her
razor-sharp political instincts
about the place. And get a lot of
help.
From both sides.
M
cCaskill was never supposed to survive this long.
In 2012, she faced a tough
PHOTOS BY CHRISTOPHER SMITH FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
reelection challenge from John
Brunner, a Republican hand-sanitizer magnate positioning himself as an outsider. Instead of
firing full blast on him, she engaged in a bit of political jujitsu
with a move she liked to call
“Operation Dog Whistle”: She
bought TV ads attacking Brunner’s GOP opponent, Todd Akin,
as “too conservative for Missouri.” In a Republican primary
contest, that amounted to an inkind contribution.
McCaskill had reckoned Akin
would be the easiest Republican
to defeat, because of his hardright stances and his propensity
to say outlandish things.
She was right.
Shortly after Akin won his primary, he choked on his own foot,
with an interview in which he
maintained women who suffer a
“legitimate rape” aren’t likely to
get pregnant. It was, McCaskill
says, “the most exciting” day of
her political career.
Surely there’s a part of McCaskill — who’s spent a good chunk
of her career beclowning boorish
men — that wishes she could use
the president as a similar foil.
While a member of the Missouri
House of Representatives, the
Senate majority leader called her
a “whore.” She used the opportunity to condemn “gutter speech,”
earning a standing ovation from
the House and — perhaps more
important — some statewide
name recognition. In 2012, McCaskill was quietly thrilled when
Rush Limbaugh called her a
“commie babe liberal.” The attack
made her look moderate by comparison and generated a flood of
campaign contributions.
Of course, in today’s political
circus, where the star of a scandalous “Access Hollywood” tape is
now the president, McCaskill is
not so sure that “legitimate rape”
would even qualify as a legitimate controversy. “It certainly
wouldn’t be as noteworthy,” she
said.
And despite her attack-dog
reputation, McCaskill has long
seen value in picking her battles.
TOP: Sen. Claire McCaskill (DMo.) speaks during a town hall
meeting this month in Clinton,
Mo. McCaskill has been one of
the Senate’s most quotably
outspoken Democrats. But in a
state that went strongly for
Donald Trump in November,
she is striking a cautious tone
in her 2018 reelection bid.
ABOVE: McCaskill greets
Ashley McCarty and her son
Reese after a roundtable at the
Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.
Early in her career, “I made a
decision to laugh on the outside at
all the sexual harassment,” she
wrote in “Plenty Ladylike,” her
2015 memoir, “while on the inside
I used those moments to amp up
my determination and focus to
succeed.”
Today, McCaskill may be making a similar calculation. The best
way to fight Trump is to win. And
the best way to win, she seems to
have decided, is to not fight
Trump.
“M
y dad taught me to
drive on these country
roads,” McCaskill said
from the passenger seat of a Chevrolet Suburban as she headed
from one rural town hall to the
next. “When there was a break in
the yellow line, he would reach
over with his foot and just step on
the accelerator.”
She pantomimed lifting her leg
over the console. Her young driver widened his eyes with worry.
“I’d start shouting, ‘Holy s---!”
she cackled. “And he’d yell right
back: ‘Well, ya gotta learn how to
pass in the country! That’s how
we do it out here!’ ”
She grew up in these parts and
knows how much that matters. As
her mother lay dying in a hospital
during the 2012 election cycle, she
would constantly needle her
daughter: “Are you spending
enough time in rural Missouri?”
When she talks law and order
— maintaining, for example, that
anyone who tears down a statue
should be prosecuted — it’s with
the authority of a veteran prosecutor. (“A killer,” she was called by
a top defense attorney in a 1987
Kansas City Star profile headlined “Blonde Ambition.”) And
when reports surfaced on Twitter
that violent left-wing “antifa”
protesters had physically lashed
out at journalists in Charlottesville, McCaskill seized upon the
news.
“Yep, I know some of those
guys, I’m telling you,” she said,
holding up her phone to her staff-
ers in the back of the car. “The
skirmishes that broke out, I’m
sure there was fault on both
sides.”
Both sides. There it was again,
an unexpected echo of Trump,
who cast blame on “many sides”
for the violence that erupted in
Charlottesville when white nationalists and neo-Nazis protested the removal of a Robert E. Lee
statue. McCaskill was quick to say
that Trump made the situation
worse by not coming down hard
on the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan
— but her condemnation of “both
sides” had an intentional-sounding ring to it.
McCaskill’s worry, of course, is
not that Democrats will see her as
too conservative; it’s that moderates will see her as too liberal. A
Republican super PAC, America
Rising, already has a tracker attending all of her events in search
of a sound bite to help paint her as
just another progressive in the
Elizabeth Warren mold. On Sunday morning, Trump interrupted
his tweets about the Texas storm
response to announce that “I will
also be going to a wonderful state,
Missouri, that I won by a lot in ’16.
Dem C.M. is opposed to big tax
cuts.”
So at her appearances across
the state, McCaskill seems more
interested in talking about the
price of hearing aids, bipartisan
efforts to fix health care, or a bill
she’s working on to provide aid to
World War II veterans exposed to
mustard gas, than she is in litigating the culture wars or talking
about the president. It shouldn’t
be surprising: Missouri has had
trouble choosing sides ever since
its residents fought for both the
North and the South in the Civil
War. Today, it’s the swingiest of
swing states, and the land of both
Ferguson and Limbaugh. McCaskill knows the importance of
finding balance on terrain that’s
liable to shift, and shift again.
Recently, McCaskill co-hosted
a Kansas City roundtable with
Sen. Pat Roberts, a Republican
from Kansas, on the risk of agroterrorism. The two discussed
their work to protect the nation’s
food supply from biological attacks, and Roberts praised McCaskill as the person to call when
you need to get things done.
As the event came to a close, a
news-media gaggle moved in,
peppering the senators with
questions about Trump’s latest
controversies, among other
things. Fortunately for Roberts, a
member of the opposing party
had armed him with the perfect
dodge.
“Well, you know, there was
somebody, I think it was Senator
McCaskill from Missouri, who
said it was not her job to really
criticize the president,” he intoned. “It’s not mine, either.”
Standing by his side, McCaskill
offered an exasperated smirk.
“It’s not exactly what I said,”
she emphasized, then clarified:
Her job was to fight for Missourians, but she reserved the right to
criticize the president whenever
she saw fit. She also reserved the
right not to.
And so, she didn’t.

LA TIMES CROSSWORD
There’s no science to the
laws of romantic attraction
Carolyn Hax is
away. The following is from
June 27, 2003.
Carolyn
Hax
Hi, Carolyn: I was
interested in my
best friend last
year, but she
wasn’t interested
in me. We got that out of the way,
ended up closer than before and
everything’s been fine since. Now,
I’m happy with a great girlfriend.
The problem is, each time my
friend becomes interested in
someone new, I keep asking
myself, “What was wrong with
me?” (since she never told me,
though I asked). This is especially
a problem because more recently
she’s been interested in someone
we both know.
I’m quite happy with my
girlfriend now, so I feel terrible
about continuing to wonder
about what my defect was/is. I
chalk this up to being unable to
grow up and get over not being
good enough, but I was
wondering if you had any
thoughts.
— P.C.
P.C. I chalk it up to your chalking
it up to things that are beside the
point. Falling for people isn’t
about their being “good enough.”
In fact, I think everyone has at
least one friend for whom falling
in love is about finding someone
wretched enough . . . but that’s
beside the point, too.
Point is, even when you have a
good idea why you’re attracted to
someone — she’s smart, she’s
pretty, she can belch the “Ode to
Joy” — there will always be the
intangible something(s) that
made you choose her over all the
other pretty, smart music lovers.
Two people with little in common
meet at a cocktail party and talk
for an hour straight; two who are
perfect for each other on paper
barely get past “hello.” Can you
always explain the difference? For
that matter, can you pinpoint why
you chose your new girlfriend?
Not really. Mostly, we guess.
Meditations on
the meanings
of simple words
BOOK WORLD FROM C1
break life down to its simplest
parts.
For a writer, this poses an
interesting challenge. At some
level, the book is a series of
writing exercises or prompts.
Choose a word and see where it
takes you, assume no one has ever
written a definition for it, try
seeing something for the first
time. A mouth, for instance, “is
made up of the lips, two relatively
long and narrow pads which lie
horizontally against each other
on the forward-facing side of the
head, in the lower part of the face,
below the nose.”
In some cases, the topical noun
makes him think of the reach of
the word itself. Picture frames,
which “form the edge of a picture
and mark the boundary between
what is in the picture and what is
not,” bring to mind limits and
edges. Others evoke memories.
Buttons — “those little discs that
we use to fasten pieces of cloth
around the body” — make him
think of the contrast between
Bath & Shower Remodels
NICK GALIFIANAKIS FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
Your best friend’s judgment is
just as subject to unknowns,
intangibles and downrightinexplicables as yours is, or
anyone else’s. Some people use
those unknowns to keep flogging
themselves, and some turn them
around to flog the source of
rejection (maybe she’s the
“defective” one!). They work best
as a kind of release: You can’t ever
know, so you won’t bother to try.
Especially since all you ever
needed to know was “no.”
Dear Carolyn: This is an ages-old
problem, and I’m looking for a
solution. Boy and girl experience
problems, and boy withdraws
into his emotional cave. Girl tries
to solve problem through
intimate communication, which
feels best to her, but boy wants to
think about the problem alone,
which feels best to him. Girl feels
emotionally abandoned, and
expresses so. Boy feels
emotionally pressured, and
expresses so. An impasse is
frugality and abundance. Where
his mother used to save buttons
and reuse them, neither he nor
his wife sews; they would rather
replace a shirt than salvage it.
So it continues, essay for essay,
as Knausgaard summons all the
Proustian and philosophical ramifications of a simple word. Sometimes, he soundly hits the target:
“Shame is like a lock, it shuts
away what must be shut away,
and is one of the most important
mechanisms of social life.” At
other times, his ideas seem suspect, such as when he sees forgiveness strictly in power-struggle terms: “If one forgives someone, and this does not cause them
to lose face, then one is still a
victim and the weaker party.”
Collectively, these ruminations
disclose a larger vision, which is
that we live in a bountiful world
that nourishes life but is also
indifferent to it, and where human beings — no less than lower
forms of life — are ignorant of any
environment but their own.
Knausgaard sounds this note
whenever the subject of animals
comes up. Bees think only of the
hive, adders aren’t aware of
sound, flies care only for flies,
badgers stay close to the forest
floor, and we can’t relate to jellyfish at all. But then, people are
also remote, “familiar with and
created. Both parties feel
misunderstood and
underappreciated. What next?
— Tired of These Same Old Steps
Tired of These Same Old Steps:
Think Hollywood thoughts and
rewrite the ending. Boy and girl
both open their minds to different
emotional styles. Girl agrees to
give boy some private time to sort
his thoughts and uses the time
constructively herself instead of
agitating. Boy agrees to use cave
for reflection and not merely to
hide from girl, reassures girl so
she isn’t left to agitate and
emerges from cave before girl and
boy grow old. Girl and boy decide
to replace the term “impasse”
with “opportunity to consider
how the other person functions.”
Or, with “seeya,” depending on
how this compromise feels.

foreign to ourselves and the
world we are a part of.”
Certainly, it’s true of him. He
thinks of his late, friendless father, ponders his limitations, considers how time is passing and
who he has become: “a white
middle-aged man with a frozen
inner self.” The description brings
to mind another solitary writer,
Wallace Stevens, who felt a similar existential chill as he observed
the northern lights in “The Auroras of Autumn”:
The scholar of one candle sees
An Arctic effulgence flaring on
the frame
Of everything he is. And he feels
afraid.
Knausgaard tries to write himself out of this Scandinavian funk.
There’s the promise of another
day, the imminent arrival of his
new child — and there is also this
book. “One of the properties of
language,” he writes near the end,
“is that it can name what isn’t
here.”
In these secular meditations,
Knausgaard scratches away at the
ordinary to reach the sublime —
finding what’s in the picture, and
what’s hidden.

‘GoT’ actor hopes to survive Season 8
THRONES FROM C1
character.
I also loved doing that lovely
little scene with that fermented
crab Viagra. It kind of let you
know his smuggling roots and
what he was good at when he
was selling stuff and moving
stuff. It was lovely to have that
throwback to the character that
he used to be before he became
embroiled in the pit of snakes
that is Westeros. So all that sort
of thing where you could have a
bit of humor. And when you’ve
got beautiful words to say like
the lads [showrunners D.B.
Weiss and David Benioff ] give
you, all you have to do is just do
them justice.
Q: You don’t have the scripts for
the final season yet, right?
A: Nobody has them. Well, I
think the people who build sets
and make costumes and do all
that wonderful clever stuff, they
obviously have them because the
plans are afoot. I have not seen
one word of what’s coming up.
When people get that little
tingle up their spine when [the
show] is about to be broadcast,
that tingle is what I get on the
day the scripts are sent to me.
Q: When you were reading the
script for Season 7, was there
one huge surprise that really
shocked you?
A: [Sunday] night when it was
finally confirmed that Jon Snow
was, in fact, the man who should
— on paper, anyway — lead the
Seven Kingdoms. That was
extraordinary. But I mean, every
episode! Last night there were
so many. I remember in the
previous episode when I read
that they pulled the dragon out
of the lake and turned him into
not a White Walker but a White
Flier, I remember reading that
and going, “Oh, my God!” There
are oh-my-God moments all over
this. It’s part of the joy of it.
Q: Playing Jon Snow’s most
trusted adviser, do you have any
inkling how Ser Davos might
react when he finds out he’s
actually the legitimate heir to
the throne? Maybe he should
rescind his offer to bend the
knee to Daenerys?
A: I don’t know. With this show,
it’s incredibly unpredictable.
Anything can happen on this. I
wonder if I’m going to be in the
room, because I’d like to see the
look on Daenerys’s face. [Much
laughter.] It’s a double-whammy
here — not only has he taken her
job, she’s also his aunt. I mean,
that’s going to be an interesting
one.
Q: There was a lot of talk this
season about how quickly
characters were moving from
one place to another, and Ser
Davos especially was pinballing
all over the place.
A: The way I view this is, when
we saw Ned Stark getting his
head lopped off in Season 1, and
people looked at it and their
jaws hit the ground because it
was a game-changer — the
leading man does not get killed
— when that happened, people
realized the rules no longer
apply. That’s kind of like this
jumping around with Varys and
myself and a few others.
I mean, these are travel
things, do you know what I
mean? If we want them to stick
to continuity, we’d have to wait
another 12 episodes before
Gendry got back to Eastwatch
and gave me the news. The way I
view drama is life with the
boring bits taken out. I don’t
really want to watch Varys
eating his lunch or me under a
tree waiting for the rain to pass
so we can get somewhere. Let’s
get rid of that stuff. As [“Beyond
the Wall” episode director] Alan
Taylor said, we did stretch the
believability factor of that, but it
was for the purposes of drama,
and I think if you looked at
whoever you were watching it
with on the couch and went,
“Well, he got there quick,” I
think you’d get over it. It’s a
grown-up show for grown-ups —
let’s cut out the boring bits.
Q: You’ve had so many great
scenes over the years. Looking
back, is there one that really
sticks out to you that you won’t
between Melisandre and Jon
Snow in the room [after Davos
found out Shireen was burned to
death as a sacrifice]. You don’t
see many occasions when Davos
loses it and has his heart
broken.
Now I don’t know what the
hell is going to happen with
Davos in the next season. I do
hope he doesn’t go too early. I’d
love to be there for the last
episode. I mean, my ambition
was to be there for the last
season and I’ve achieved that.
Now I have another one — to get
to the last episode. Whether that
will happen or not is up to the
gods of Westeros.
HELEN SLOAN/HBO
Liam Cunningham in “Game of Thrones.” “I don’t really want to
watch Varys eating his lunch,” he says of Season 7’s fast pace.
forget?
A: You know, I loved the stuff
with Shireen [played by actress
Kerry Ingram], and I do like the
young ladies on this show. We’ve
watched the progress of Sansa
and Arya with the gorgeous
Sophie [Turner] and Maisie
[Williams] going from children
— and Bran [Isaac Hempstead
Wright] as well — from being
small children. To watch them
develop into fantastic adults and
to watch their craft develop,
that’s been a complete joy.
And then, the confrontation
Q: Speaking of which, how
would you like to see Ser Davos
end up, in your ideal world?
A: Listen, Mr. Ramsay [Bolton]
did say, if you think this is going
to have a happy ending, you
haven’t been paying attention.
It’s impossible to predict.
Ambition-wise, is Jon Snow
going to end up on the throne
with Ser Davos as his hand? I
think that’s a little too
predictable. It would be nice,
but I don’t think that’s going to
happen.
You know what? I try to keep
all the options open. I just want
to see where it goes. I’m as much
of a fan, and I’m a fan that’s
blessed to be a participant in
this. That’s the way I’m viewing
it — we’ll see what happens.

He needs to take better care of himself.
Persuading him will require tough love.
Ask Amy
Dear Amy: My
partner and I have
been together for
AMY
more than 15
DICKINSON
years. We are not
married, and now
we are in our 40s.
He developed a serious health
issue after we became serious in
our relationship. For many years,
he has had an “apron” of extra
weight, and is far over the safety
range, worsening his condition.
Our families are very
supportive of us getting married,
especially because he nearly died
three years ago.
Even with my education,
research and dedication to his
situation, I have had little
influence on what he does or eats,
or if he exercises.
I have tried to show him that
we can stay together forever, just
as things are. But I have also tried
to explain to him that we need to
be married to secure our
retirement.
He is on disability, and I have
spent the past 10 years working
from home to care for him.
Neither of us has a high
enough income to make it
independently once we retire.
I want guidance on how to
motivate him to make good
decisions.
I have tried to get him to go to
counseling or support groups. He
won’t do either, but is clearly
suffering from long-term
depression. I cannot motivate
him.
I say the Serenity Prayer every
day, but there has to be
something else that would work.
Do you have any
recommendations?

However, despite your

Serenity Prayer’s central message,

When we truly love someone,

point, you need to explore the

problem. In fact, you may
actually be removing some

financial need for marriage, and
he would have to develop
strategies to take care of himself.
This is your reality. Counseling
(for you) might awaken you to the
idea that you need to take better
care of yourself.

“L
ook at this,” a club
player said to me disgustedly. “I always thought
my concentration level was
decent, but when I was
declarer at this slam, my train
of thought got derailed.”
At his vulnerable six
hearts, my friend took the
king of diamonds, led a
trump to dummy’s ace and
returned the jack of clubs:
king, ace, deuce.
“I cashed the queen of
clubs,” he went on, “and
ruffed a club with the three
of trumps. East overruffed
and led his last trump, and
I was dead. My last low club
was a loser. I deserved a kick
in the caboose.”
“You did well to reach
slam,” I said, trying to apply
some balm. “It was a good
contract, but most pairs
would have stopped at
game.”
Everyone suffers an occasional aberration. South ran
off the track when he ruffed
the third club with a low
trump. He must instead ruff
with the queen. South then
returns to his hand with the
ace of spades and ruffs his
last club with the three. East
can overruff, but that is the
defenders’ only trick.

The dealer, at your left,
opens two diamonds (weak).
Your partner doubles, and
the next player passes. What
do you say?
ANSWER: Partner has
obliged you to act at the
two level at least; his hand
is worth 16 or more points.
Since you have three useful honors and a five-card
suit, game is likely. Jump to
three spades to invite. You
would bid two spades with
the same pattern but no high
cards at all.

CANDORVILLE
DARRIN BELL
BIRTHDAY | AUGUST 29
This year you open up
to new, avant-garde
ideas. Generally you
walk away from this
type of risk, preferring to be
more conventional. If single,
you will want someone you
can share more with. This
person might not be ready
to settle down when you first
meet him or her. If attached,
the two of you might be
open to a different lifestyle.
You might want to move or
travel more. Others will buy
homes, possibly a second
home. Sagittarius helps you
move past your self-imposed
restrictions.
ARIES
(MARCH 21-APRIL 19).
Convert some of your stress
and tension into energy. You
might not be able to complete
an ongoing plan at this point,
but you can move forward and
have it ready for the finishing
touches. Someone whispers
some news in your ear, but you
wonder whether it is news or
gossip.
TAURUS
(APRIL 20-MAY 20).
One-on-one relating opens
doors that previously were
sealed shut. Dealing with
some of what comes forward
could produce stress. What
is important is not to make a
judgment just yet.
GARFIELD
JIM DAVIS
GEMINI
(MAY 21-JUNE 20).
Follow through on what needs
to happen. A partner becomes
WEINGARTENS & CLARK unusually sensitive, yet what
bothers this person doesn’t
make sense to you. Just
accept the way he or she feels.
BARNEY AND CLYDE
CANCER
(JUNE 21-JULY 22).
You might want to clear off
your desk and get as much
done as possible. Network and
enjoy associates, but don’t
take anything said as a given.
Ideas flow, and you enjoy
brainstorming with others.

Your imagination stretches far
and could impact you at the
oddest moments. You also
have a sense of humor that
seems to kick in whenever you
need it to, and in the oddest
situations.

A family member or roommate
could be involved with a
charged area of your domestic
life, which presents a problem.
Tension builds. Close loved
ones might act as if they are
on a different planet — their
thoughts are far away from
your concerns.
LIBRA
(SEPT. 23-OCT. 22).
Keep asking. You might feel
as if certain matters need
completion, yet there is an
issue surrounding just that.
Pull back when there is an
obstacle, and find areas where
you can move freely around
that issue.

You might not need to follow
through on all of your ideas.

Although a fair has been held in Timonium
since 1879, the first official Maryland State
Fair was held in 1906 after two competing
fairs held in the state were combined.

n a comfy corner of the
Swine Pavilion at the
Montgomery County Fairgrounds,
14-year-old
Mackenzie “Cookie” McGaha (sounds like maGAK-ee) feeds her Yorkshire pig a
marshmallow. Named for his favorite sweet treat, the 6-monthold pink pig waits in a tidy pen. It
almost looks as though he’s smiling. Soon it will be time for the
pair to compete in a nearby
arena.
Cookie and her two older
brothers take care of their animals at the show grounds when
they compete and also on their
family’s farm in Beallsville, Maryland. Care involves a lot of early
mornings feeding slop, bathing
animals and mucking manure.
It’s messy, and it’s hard work.
“But I really enjoy being with
the animals,” says Cookie, whose
parents grew up raising farm
animals. “It’s a big responsibility
caring for these pigs every day,”
says the girl, who stays in a
camper at the fairgrounds with
her family during the fair.
In another barn nearby, 11year-old Jackson Rippeon demonstrates how to blow-dry a steer
(a young male cow that can no
longer reproduce) after a bath, to
get ready for a show. Old Yeller —
a buff-colored bovine who weighs
1,310 pounds — stands quietly for
his beauty treatment.
Jackson pays extra attention to
his steers’ hair before a show.
“It’s a lot of work to keep them
washed, dried and clipped and
getting them fit,” he says. In steer
competitions, the word “fit” refers to keeping a steer’s hair
fluffed. Like his dad, Jackson has

raised and shown steers since he
was a young boy. They live on a
farm in Mount Airy.
The fact that his steers will
soon be sold for meat doesn’t stop
Jackson from doting on his animals. His bond with the steers
started when he got them as
calves, or babies.
“I would sit in their stall with
them and rub them,” he says. “I
see them every day. They understand that I’m going to take care
of them and give them lots of
good food and care. They have a
good life.”
Back in the Swine Pavilion,
Cookie’s pig snacks on a few more
marshmallows before the pair
head into the arena with other
competitors. The judge compares
how the pigs walk, the perkiness
of their ears, and the width of
their shoulders and hindquarters. Then he awards Cookie and
Marshmallow a blue ribbon and
$25 for first place. Two days later,
Marshmallow is named the day’s
champion Yorkshire.
Cookie will compete at the
Maryland State Fair this week.
Jackson and his family will be
there, too. This year, he has
competed in six or seven shows,
including two in Indiana. But he’s
especially looking forward to the
state fair.
“I love their show ring,” he
says, “with all the flags and the
banners.”
Jackson also likes how they use
deep, super-soft shavings in the
steers’ stalls to make the animals
comfortable. Two things he
doesn’t care for? Junk food and
carnival rides.
“No,” he says, “I don’t go for
that stuff. I’m usually at the
barn.”

for best artist was fan-voted or
bestowed by the almighty gods of
Viacom? (“It’s not voted, is it?” he
asked.) It’s all so embarrassing.
How can these artists expect us to
care about their presence at the
VMAs when they don’t?
As for the evening’s interstitial
chitchat, why wasn’t it more selfaware? Why was Pete Wentz of
Fall Out Boy handing out a prize
for best dance video, and why did
he have to make a joke about how
white guys can’t dance by doing
the robot (poorly), and why does
he still have Richard Spencer’s
haircut? On the topic of men with
objectionable style, why did the
bassist from DNCE say, “Shoutout to MTV and Taco Bell for
always showing support to
emerging artists,” when the only
way that Taco Bell really supports
emerging artists is by selling food
that emerging artists can afford
to eat?
Why were the telecast’s transitions from sobriety to levity made
to feel as graceless as possible?
More specifically, why did MTV
invite Heather Heyer’s mother to
speak about the fate of our nation, then pivot to a live feed from
Las Vegas, where Rod Stewart
was singing “Da Ya Think I’m
Sexy?” on a casino rooftop with
the help of a mustachioed Jonas
brother? As for that performance
itself, why did it feel so thin when
it could have felt absurd, or clever, or maybe even fun?
Speaking of the absence of fun,
why was Perry invited to host this
thing? Who thinks she’s funny?
Who was laughing when she delivered her show-opening monologue about spending the past
few months in space, then pretended to be baffled by a fidget
spinner? Why was the most-followed human being on Twitter
making dull jokes about social
media opportunists? Why can’t
she see that her misguided comedic impulses are toxic to her
stardom? Why can’t she go back
to space?
And why-why-why-why-why is
Taylor Swift in such a big hurry to
beat Perry to the nadir of their
respective careers?
Why did Swift decide to drop a
new single about her rivalry with
Kanye West — a feud born at the
VMAs way back in 2009 — at a
time when everyone seems eager
for a massive pop hit that might
clarify our national mood? Why
did she go through with releasing
a mawkish music video for that
single, “Look What You Made Me
Do,” on a weekend when our
country’s fourth-largest city was
halfway underwater? Why did
MTV make it the selling point of
Sunday’s show, then air it near
the top of the telecast? And why
did Swift tweet “The #LWYMMDvideo is out now” at the exact
moment Heyer’s mother was
standing at the microphone during the VMAs? Bad timing. Bad
times.

FANCY STATS
CINDY BOREN
And they say NFL preseason
games are meaningless. Try telling
that to Denver Broncos offensive
lineman Menelik Watson.
Watson used the third quarter
of the team’s Saturday night preseason game against visiting
Green Bay to get serious, walking
over to the stands behind the
bench and dropping to his knee to
ask his girlfriend, Azania Stewart,
to marry him.
All together now, awwwww.
Unlike the poor fellow whose
proposal in Fenway Park went horribly awry a few months ago, this
one came off without a hitch once
Watson located Stewart in the
stands. And he pulled off the move
in-game because Stewart, a professional basketball player who
played for Britain in the 2012
Olympics, was to leave Sunday for
Latvia, where she plays professionally.
“It was her first NFL game,”
Watson said via DenverBroncos.com. “. . . It’s something I’ve
been thinking about for a while.
I’ve been contemplating it. What a
perfect time to do it: in our stadium, the first game, in front of a
beautiful crowd. I’m not really a
public person, but I just thought it
would be something special that
we could remember forever.”
Watson, a 28-year-old who was
born in Manchester, England, first
saw Stewart, a 6-foot-5 center, during a basketball camp in London
when the two were teens. This
being a preseason game, no one
was too concerned that Watson’s
move would be a distraction.
As far as Stewart was concerned, there was only one thing
missing. “He said he has [the ring],
but obviously he didn’t bring it out
at halftime,” Stewart said. “But
whatever, he asked me and it was
awesome.”
His teammates were excited.
“That was very cool,” quarterback Trevor Siemian said. “None of
us had any idea, really. . . . I can’t
say I was expecting that or have
seen that before. But I’m happy for
them both, obviously.”
“I’ve never seen anyone propose
in a game,” tackle Garett Bolles
said. “That’s the first one. That’s
the first, for sure. It’s awesome. I
love that guy.”

Kareem Hunt, above, is going to have an increased role in the Chiefs’ offense following an injury to starter Spencer Ware.
Last-minute help for fantasy drafts
As preseason winds down,
several players are seeing
their roles solidified
BY
N EIL G REENBERG
Kansas City Chiefs top running back
Spencer Ware suffered what likely was a
season-ending injury during a
preseason game last weekend. It means
rookie Kareem Hunt is squarely in the
spotlight and moving up the draft
boards of fantasy football owners. In
fact, Hunt has to be considered fantasy
football’s single biggest riser given his
ability and the Chiefs’ history of
successful running backs.
Hunt, a third-round draft pick, had
5,500 total yards from scrimmage
(4,945 yards rushing, 555 yards
receiving) with 45 touchdowns and just
one fumble in his career at Toledo.
Since Coach Andy Reid took over in
2013, the Chiefs rank eighth in total
rushing yards over that span (1,942 per
year) with the second-most touchdowns
(69, 17 per year), per TruMedia.
Reid told reporters that Hunt is “the
next man up,” so look for Hunt to
become an early-round pick in fantasy.
Here’s a look at some of the other
players who have seen their stock surge
or slide as the preseason winds down.
Rising
WR Chris Hogan, New England
Patriots, 9.12 average draft position
The
defending
Super
Bowl
champions will be without Julian
Edelman, quarterback Tom Brady’s top
target, after Edelman suffered a torn
anterior cruciate ligament in Friday’s
preseason game against the Detroit
Lions and is out for the season.
The risk in drafting Brandin Cooks is
lessened — you can expect Cooks’s
target level to increase to that of
comparable No. 1 wideouts — but
Hogan might see the biggest increase in
workload among the team’s wide
receivers.
WR Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills, 11.05
ADP
His spot on the roster was clarified
after news concerning a pair of other
wide receivers: Anquan Boldin retired,
and Sammy Watkins was traded. It
means Jones, a rookie from East
Carolina, will line up opposite Jordan
Matthews on the outside.
Jones holds the NCAA record with
399 receptions and learned all five wide
receiver positions as a senior at ECU,
according to an interview with his
college coach on newyorkupstate.com.
Jones caught three of eight targets
for 28 yards in the third preseason game
and has caught six passes for 70 yards
overall.
His
performance
might
be
inconsistent during the first few weeks
of the season; Buffalo plays the Carolina
Panthers in Week 2, the Denver Broncos
in Week 3 and the Cincinnati Bengals in
Week 5. But a soft schedule during the
middle of the fantasy football season
makes him an ideal filler for bye weeks.
RB Chris Thompson, Washington
Redskins, undrafted
He appears to be locked in as Coach
Jay Gruden’s third-down back. His 3.29
yards per route run is the highest rate
among running backs this summer.
Last season, Thompson had 68
carries for 356 yards — a team-high 3.13
yards per carry after contact — with two
touchdowns plus 49 catches for 349
yards and two touchdowns.
Falling
RB Samaje Perine, Washington
Redskins, 10.12 ADP
Despite broadcaster Chris Cooley
and others thinking Perine is
Washington’s running back of the
future, the rookie from Oklahoma has
done little to move up the depth chart. It
means Rob Kelley remains the starter
with Thompson as the change-of-pace
back on third downs.
Perine rushed five times for five yards
in the Redskins’ third preseason game,
bringing his preseason totals to 19
carries for 65 yards. And starting
quarterback Kirk Cousins has yet to
target him for a pass.
WR Stefon Diggs,
Vikings, 5.02 ADP
Minnesota
He caught two of five targets for six
yards in the Vikings’ third preseason
game but didn’t play a snap as the
team’s slot receiver, odd for a player who
ran almost two-thirds of his routes from
the slot a year before. Adam Thielen,
meanwhile, appears to have inherited
this role for Minnesota.
TE O.J. Howard, Tampa
Buccaneers, 13.06 ADP
Bay
A 6-foot-6 first-round pick out of
Alabama gives quarterback Jameis
Winston a huge target with a wide catch
radius.
But with veteran targets including
Mike Evans, Doug Martin, Cameron
Brate and DeSean Jackson, Howard
isn’t getting many looks when he lines
up with the first team.
Winston has targeted him just five
times in the preseason, two in the red
zone, and Howard appears to be a
distant third option (at best) behind
Evans and the team’s other tight end,
Brate.
And that could limit Howard as a
viable fantasy tight end. Over the past
five years, the 12th-best tight end has
produced 151 PPR fantasy points, on
average, with a minimum of 85 targets
in a season.
The last rookie tight end with that
many targets or more was Jeremy
Shockey (128 targets in 2002). Before
that it was Cam Cleeland (88 targets in
1998). No other rookie tight end has
qualified since 1992, the first year target
data is available, making it unlikely that
Howard would be worthy of selection in
your draft.

evening following a lengthy
discussion between the league
and the Hamilton organization.
We wish Mr. Briles all the best in
his future endeavours.”
The 61-year-old Briles was fired
in May 2016 by Baylor after an
investigation by a law firm found
that over several years the school
mishandled numerous sexual
assault allegations, including
some against football players. The
Pepper Hamilton review also led
to the departures of university
President Kenneth Starr and
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker
Vontaze Burfict maintains that his
hit on Kansas City Chiefs fullback
Anthony Sherman during a recent
preseason game was legal, and his
team is backing him in that contention. But in the NFL’s view, the
hit checked every box for what
should warrant stringent disciplinary action. To that end, it suspended Burfict, as a repeat offender, for five regular season games.
During the offseason, the NFL’s
rulemaking competition committee put a directive into effect mandating an increased emphasis on
ejections and suspensions being
given to players guilty of certain
illegal hits in games.
The measure was enacted as a
point of officiating emphasis,
meaning no ratification vote by
the owners of the 32 NFL teams
was required. The directive is
aimed at illegal hits so egregious
that they should bring swift and
meaningful action, whether the
offender has a history of them or
not.
According to a person familiar
with the NFL’s deliberations, the
league believes that Burfict’s suspension is warranted under the
new directive. It also believes that
Burfict’s suspension would have
been warranted even without the
new measure given it was an illegal hit, in the NFL’s view, delivered by a player with a long history of on-field infractions.
Discipline also might have
been warranted based merely on
the unnecessary roughness of the
hit, in the league’s view. So, to the
NFL, it was a straightforward decision and a relatively easy call.
Burfict is appealing the penalty,
and the Bengals are offering public support.
“The Bengals are aware of the
NFL’s letter to Vontaze regarding
a play in last weekend’s game,” a
written statement issued by the
team said. “The film shows that
the hit was legal, that Vontaze
engaged his opponent from the
front, and that contact was shoulder-to-chest. The Club will support Vontaze in the appeal process.”
Burfict also said the hit is legal.
He was not penalized during the
game for the hit on Sherman. But
that does not preclude the league
from imposing discipline after reviewing the hit.
Sherman was cutting across
the field while running a pass
pattern. That makes him a defenseless player, under NFL rules,
and he cannot be hit in the head or
neck area. The defender also cannot launch himself at a defenseless player or lower his head to
deliver a blow with the crown of
the helmet. Under the rules, a
receiver running a pattern is a
defenseless player “when the defender approaches from the side
or behind,” even when the football
is thrown elsewhere and the receiver in question is not in the
process of making a catch.

Redskins’ Taylor is lost for the season
Quad tear will sideline
nose tackle who appeared
poised to be starter
BY
TONI L. SANDYS/THE WASHINGTON POST
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, left, talks to Terrelle Pryor Sr.
during a preseason game. Pryor has two receptions in three games.
DAN STEINBERG
M IKE J ONES
The Redskins’ defense suffered a blow Monday when the
team learned that nose tackle
Phil Taylor will miss the season
after tearing his left quadriceps
Sunday against the Cincinnati
Bengals in Washington’s third
preseason game, two people with
knowledge of the situation confirmed.
The injury will require surgery
to repair.
A first-round pick out of Baylor in 2011, the 6-foot-3, 343pound Taylor hasn’t played a
regular season game since 2014.
The Prince George’s County
native and former All-Met at
Gwynn Park spent the first four
seasons of his NFL career with
the Cleveland Browns, but he
missed much of the 2014 season
with a right knee injury that required surgery. After injury setbacks in 2015 and 2016, Taylor
signed with Washington on a
non-guaranteed deal this past
winter.
After entering spring practices
as the third nose tackle behind
Joey Mbu and A.J. Francis, Taylor
climbed the depth chart during
training camp and the preseason
and appeared poised to lock up
the starting job. Taylor had displayed impressive quickness and
strength as he rounded back into
form.
Taylor was injured on the
second defensive play of the
game Sunday and did not return.
He left FedEx Field with his quad
heavily wrapped.
With Taylor done for the season, Redskins coaches now must
settle on their next best option.
Ninth-year veteran Ziggy Hood
has played both nose tackle and
defensive end. He is the most
experienced of the remaining
candidates. Francis and Mbu,
who both spent time on Washington’s practice squad last season, played at nose tackle after
Taylor got hurt Sunday.
Stacy McGee, a free agent
addition this past winter, played
nose tackle for Oakland, but
Washington has used him primarily as an end, believing he is
the better fit there.
Fortunately for the Redskins,
defensive line coach Jim Tomsula has frequently rotated all of
his players using different pairings and putting them at multiple positions to ensure improved
versatility and depth.
This is the second defensive
player the Redskins have lost for
the duration of the 2017 season,
with outside linebacker Trent
Murphy suffering a torn anterior
cruciate ligament in his left knee
during Washington’s first preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.

No hang-ups between Cousins
and Pryor on failure to connect Three players balance work, worries about Houston
STEINBERG FROM D1
in this age of slow-mo shareable
videos and rapid-fire practice
updates.
Pryor spent the past few
months wowing us with social
media clips of one-handed
catches and sprinter-quality
deep routes, of footwork drills
conducted in sand and
overworked JUGS machines
that probably will need
offseason Tommy John surgery.
Pryor’s hands — covered in
those size XXXXL gloves —
looked like lobster nets. He
jumped like a dunk contest
winner. (Pryor, in fact, was one
of the nation’s top basketball
recruits in high school; ESPN at
one point had him ranked in the
top 40, 14 spots ahead of Klay
Thompson and three spots
behind Draymond Green.) He
was built like a basketball star,
too, towering over the team’s
other receivers.
That sort of size hasn’t been
seen around here since, what,
Rod Gardner? Michael
Westbrook? Art Monk? (At 6 feet
4, Pryor figures to become the
tallest Washington wide receiver
with at least 30 receptions.)
He showed off so much, and
so frequently, that it became
second nature to assume the
best: that his continued
progress as a wide receiver
would overshadow any growing
pains of moving to a new city
with a new quarterback and a
new offense; that his numbers
in Cleveland last season were
just a tiny taste of his potential;
that he would prevent the fan
base from reminiscing about
those departed 1,000-yard
receivers, DeSean Jackson and
Pierre Garcon.
Maybe all those things will
still happen. Drawing
conclusions from the preseason
is for rubes — and sports-radio
callers. (What a waste of four
words!)
But we can at least say this:
Putting Cousins and Pryor on a
field together does not
guarantee instantaneous
fireballs of electricity.
The first-team offense
finished its preseason with 15
mostly disappointing series.
And Pryor’s final numbers
during those drives: two catches
on seven targets, including
those three balls Cousins
mentioned that hit his receiver’s
hands.
Sunday’s crossing route that
Pryor juggled and lost was
enough to send the most fragile
fans into spasms of frustration,
with more than one wondering
what happened to the guy in
those viral videos.
“It is what it is. A dropped
ball? I mean, who cares? It
happens,” Pryor said after the
game when asked whether he
was disappointed. “When I came
out [of the break], the ball’s out
a little early. I saw it coming in
flight and then as soon as it hit
my hands, I started looking
because I wanted to go, catch
the ball and run. And that’s
usually what happens when you
don’t look the ball all the way in
and you look to run instead.
“So that’s what I’m saying: It
happens. We’ll grow from that
and get better.”
Growth, as it turns out, is a
constant part of this discussion.
Pryor’s situation is so unusual
that historical comparisons
might be pointless: How many
freak athletes and quarterbacksturned-wide-receivers have
notched their breakout seasons
while catching passes from the
assortment of milk-delivery men
and Uber drivers that Cleveland
employed last season?
Still, the past at least gives
some reason for caution. The
last four NFL 1,000-yard
receivers who changed teams in
the offseason saw their yardage
totals decrease in their first
season after the switch.
By my count, 11 wide receivers
or tight ends have switched
teams after 1,000-yard seasons
since 2008. Nine of the 11 saw
their yardage totals decrease the
next season.
It isn’t always smooth, in
other words. You get the sense
that Cousins and Coach Jay
Gruden are still trying to figure
out how best to deploy Pryor
and what role he should fill.
Is he replacing Jackson as the
deep threat? Is he replacing
Garcon as the reliable and gritty
option over the middle? Does
his role change according to the
availability of Josh Doctson,
who sometimes isn’t available?
(In the same sense that the
president “sometimes” watches
Fox News.)
And can Pryor’s efficiency
improve now that he has a
legitimate and experienced
veteran throwing him the ball?
There were 25 1,000-yard
receivers in the NFL last season;
Pryor’s 55 percent catch rate
ranked him last among those 25.
Jackson, who specializes in
difficult deep routes, still caught
56 percent of his targets. Garcon
caught better than 69 percent of
his.
On top of all that,
Washington’s top three passcatching options besides Pryor
all missed time this summer
because of injury.
So it’s easy to understand why
Cousins told Fox’s Erin Andrews
on Sunday that this team might
be in discovery mode for
another month. The
quarterback used the same line
after the game, saying, “I don’t
think, really, we know what kind
of team we have until maybe
October.”
Maybe Pryor should be
judged by that more modest
growth chart, despite being on a
one-year prove-it deal. The
offseason video clips were
alluring, but it’s not
unreasonable to assume the onfield transition will be a bit
rockier, that inserting an
incredible talent into those
vacated receiver spots doesn’t
guarantee a seamless swap.
Pryor, it goes without saying,
would not agree with a call for
caution, asking Sunday evening,
“Why would I be concerned?”
He said he wasn’t sure whether
he’d want any of his preseason
misses back other than Sunday’s
drop. He said he isn’t trying to
prove himself to anybody
outside the team, that the
offense just needs to get in sync,
that drops inevitably will
happen. (“There are times
where he wants the ball to stop
and he wants to be a big target,”
Cousins said, faulting himself
for leading Pryor too far. “That’s
where we have to learn that and
grow together.”)
And don’t forget that 17-yard
catch between four defenders on
third and long Sunday, “where
he knew he was going to get hit
high and low,” as running back
Chris Thompson put it. “For him
to go in there and do that, that’s
big to see.”
You’d sound “like an idiot” if
you questioned Odell Beckham
Jr.’s hands because of a few
playoff drops, Pryor pointed out,
and those count for a bit more
than a missed connection
during these August exhibitions.
He isn’t wrong.
“From your questions, you’re
going off of preseason games,”
Pryor said, which is also fair.
“Now if we’re having this
problem Week 1, come talk to
me.”
Sounds like a deal.

Trent Williams finished the
Washington Redskins’ third preseason game Sunday unscathed.
Then, it was back to reality.
The left tackle is one of three
Redskins players who call the
Houston area home during the
offseason.
Williams woke up on game day,
when the Redskins hosted the
Cincinnati Bengals, to see parts of
the city underwater from historic
flooding as a result of Hurricane
Harvey. Yet Williams, place kicker Dustin Hopkins and defensive
lineman Joey Mbu somehow had
to block out those images and
focus on an exhibition game
1,400 miles away at FedEx Field.
“It’s still something that you
see and [it] takes a toll on you
mentally because it’s hard to get
that type of stuff off your mind
because you know a city that’s
basically your second home,” Williams said. “For me — I’m not
from there but spend a lot of time
there — seeing it underwater like
that, it does kind of hit home.”
Williams, a Longview, Tex., native who lives just outside Houston for nearly four months during the offseason, said much of
his family in the area left
Longview before the hurricane
made landfall Friday night as a
Category 4 storm off the Texas
Gulf Coast. The city recorded
16.07 inches of rain Sunday, shattering the daily record of 8.32
inches set in 1945, with a possible
20 additional inches of rain projected this week.
“It’s sad, man,” Williams said.
“Even though seeing how bad it
can get, when you see pictures
and see places that you commute
through on a daily basis and see
water to the stoplights, that’s
when it kind of gets eye-opening.”
Williams said he had a few
phone calls to make on the drive
home from the stadium Sunday
night after absorbing images of
MARK TENALLY/ASSOCIATED PRESS
“It’s hard to get that type of stuff off your mind,” said Trent Williams,
one of three Redskins who spend the offseason in the Houston area.
familiar streets and freeways
transformed into lakes and rivers. He wasn’t worried about his
house suffering flood damage,
but Williams isn’t sure about his
gym. That building sits near a
portion of the Buffalo Bayou,
which has suffered severe flooding.
After the game, Williams said
he talked to two Bengals players
who work out at the same gym —
running back Joe Mixon and wide
receiver Brandon LaFell, who
grew up in Houston — about the
situation in the city.
“We don’t really know how it’s
going to look out there,” Williams
said. “Obviously, when it’s under
that amount of water, things
change. Buildings got to get renovated. You’ve seen it with New
Orleans [following Hurricane Katrina], it goes through a pretty
drastic change. And that could
take some time.”
Mbu, who was born in Silver
Spring but grew up in Houston,
said the flooding was on his mind
before the game as he tried to
compartmentalize his thoughts.
He said he ran into the locker
room during halftime and after
the game to make sure his mother, family and friends were okay.
His mother was safe, Mbu said,
but some of his friends in southeast Houston had to evacuate.
Mbu’s brother has been stuck in
North Carolina after participating in a flag football tournament.
Both George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Hobby Airport
have been shut down until further notice.
“Thank God I’m not in a situation where my mom is hurt or
anything, but I know a few people
that are going through it right
now,” said Mbu, who also expressed a desire to “effectively
help” those affected by the hurri-
cane. “It’s kind of hard to say,
‘Hey, I’ve got a game right now.
I’ve got to forget about it.’ I wasn’t
jumping up and down, dancing
and everything today during the
game like I usually do, but I tried
to make the best of it.”
Hopkins, who played at Clear
Lake High in Houston, received
comforting news Sunday morning that his parents, grandparents and friends were fine. But he
said knowing that other families
in Houston aren’t safe, dealing
with possibly up to 50 inches of
rain in a week, put the game in
perspective.
“Not that this game is not
important, not that every game
isn’t important, but at the same
time when you look at people
losing lives, losing their homes, it
helps me realize that there are
bigger things than making or
missing a field goal,” Hopkins
said.
While the focus has been on
Houston and the Texas Gulf
Coast, parts of Louisiana could
receive up to 25 inches of rain this
week. Safety Deshazor Everett, a
native of Lake Charles, La., received a call from his mother
nearly two hours before the
game, informing him that while
everyone was safe, a tree in her
back yard fell and knocked out
the power.
“ ‘Well, Mom, I’m getting ready
for a game,’ ” Everett said he
responded. “It’s not really too bad
on my end, just the weather, but
prayers for everybody in Houston
with the flooding. I’ve got a lot of
friends in Houston and got family
in Houston. It’s something that’s
hard to watch, but as a player,
you’re told as a professional to
leave off-the-field issues off the
field. I come in here focused on
what I got to do. Now [that] we’re
done with that and got the win, I
can call everybody and check on
everybody and deal with it how I
deal with it.”

NFL NOTES
Lions’ Stafford agrees
to big contract extension
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Matthew Stafford has agreed
to a five-year contract extension
with the Detroit Lions.
The team announced the deal
Monday night, and it keeps the
quarterback under contract
through the 2022 season.
Stafford was entering the last
season of his three-year, $53 million contract. He stood to get
quite a raise and perhaps a deal
richer than the five-year, $125
million contract the Oakland
Raiders gave Derek Carr this
summer. The Detroit Free Press
reported the deal is for five years
and worth $27 million annually.
Detroit drafted Stafford No. 1
overall in 2009.
RAVENS: Baltimore has given Coach John Harbaugh a contract extension, even though the
team has missed the playoffs in
three of the past four years.
Harbaugh started this season
with a contract that stretched
through 2018. The Ravens did not
disclose the length of the new
deal, though reports say it’s for
one year, through 2019.
Since his arrival in 2008, Harbaugh has taken Baltimore to the
postseason six times. Over the
past four years, however, Baltimore has had one winning season. The Ravens were 8-8 in 2013,
10-6 in 2014, then 5-11 and 8-8
last season.
BENGALS: The NFL suspended Cincinnati linebacker
Vontaze Burfict for five games
because he leveled a Chiefs running back in a preseason game,
the latest in his history of egregious hits.
The Bengals released a statement supporting Burfict, saying
his hit on running back Anthony
Sherman was legal. Burfict is
appealing the suspension.
BRONCOS: A person with
knowledge of the diagnosis said
Denver backup quarterback Paxton Lynch will miss several weeks
with a sprained right shoulder.
KUSA-TV in Denver first reported the severity of the injury,
which Lynch suffered in his one
series against Green Bay on Saturday night.
JETS: Josh McCown will
start at quarterback in New
York’s regular season opener at
Buffalo, beating out Christian
Hackenberg and Bryce Petty.
The 38-year-old McCown was
the assumed starter the moment
he signed a one-year, $6 million
deal in March.
CHIEFS: Linebacker Reggie
Ragland will get a fresh start after
Kansas City acquired the secondyear player in a trade with the
Buffalo Bills. In exchange, the
Bills received a fourth-round pick
in the 2019 draft.
EAGLES: The Saints acquired long snapper Jon Dorenbos from Philadelphia for a seventh-round draft pick in 2019.
BILLS: Buffalo signed Keith
Wenning to address its injury-depleted quarterback position entering its final preseason game.

each home run he hits
the rest of the season.
Carpenter has 17 homers.

Ramirez (R)
Corey Kluber outpitched
Luis Severino in a marquee
matchup of all-stars, and
slumping Jose Ramirez
homered twice to power
Cleveland past New York
for its fifth consecutive victory.
Carlos Santana hit a tiebreaking homer off Severino in the seventh inning
and Austin Jackson also
went deep for the AL Central-leading Indians.
Rhys Hoskins saw his
homer streak end at five
games but drove in the goahead run with a sixth-inning double, Aaron Nola
pitched seven strong innings, and Philadelphia
beat Atlanta.
Cameron Rupp homered
for the Phillies, who have
gone deep in 10 straight
games.
Kansas City extended
its scoreless streak to an
AL record-tying 43 innings,
getting shut out a fourth
straight time in a loss to
Tampa Bay. The Royals haven’t scored since the second inning of a 3-2 loss to
Colorado last Thursday.
Christian Vazquez had
four hits, including a tworun home run, Eduardo
Nunez added a solo shot,
and Boston beat Toronto to
snap a four-game skid.
Blue Jays CF Kevin Pillar
dived to make a sensational
catch on the warning track
and take a hit away from
Mookie Betts in the sixth.
Mike Montgomery allowed one run over seven
innings, and Chicago took
advantage of three Pittsburgh errors to prevail.
Montgomery struck out
four and walked none in his
second start since he was
inserted into the rotation after Jon Lester was placed
on the 10-day disabled list.
Nicholas Castellanos
had three hits and three
RBI, and starter Jordan Zimmermann stopped a fivegame winless streak in Detroit’s victory over Colorado.

BARRY SVRLUGA
Return of Werth, Scherzer
shows what the Nats can be
SVRLUGA FROM D1
issue — a broken bone in his foot.
Because we see things through the
what-can-he-bring-in-October lens,
and because Howie Kendrick has
played well in his place lately, and
Brian Goodwin did before that, there
were questions about what a 38-yearold in the final year of his contract
might have left to contribute.
But this team can’t be whole
without Werth playing Werth. He has
hit much more important, more
emotional homers than the two-run
blast he cranked to left in the fourth,
but the ensuing bat flip and scream to
the dugout showed what Werth
believes, that you can have fun and be
a force even in the October of your
career.
“He hit that bomb,” Scherzer said,
“and old grandpa looked over at the
dugout and gave a big scream, so you
know he’s back.”
On one night, these two reminded
everyone not just of what this team
can be, but of why they do this stuff.
Put aside the $336 million that the
Nationals will pay them, combined,
for their 14 years of service. Scherzer’s
performance came not just with
pitches gunned past Stanton, but
with grunts of punctuation — effort
and joy rolled into one. Werth’s first
appearance since June 3 came with
that guttural scream to his
teammates in the dugout — one that
came from the little kid he once was.
Rehab, a trip to the minors — they
have a way of reminding a grizzled
old big leaguer what this is about.
“You remember why you play the
game,” Werth said. “You remember
why you’re doing this. You start the
game as a kid, and you turn into an
old-man businessman, so to speak.
You remember: You’re doing this
because you love to play. Originally,
you started doing this because you
love the game. From the first pitch to
the last, the game’s pure. It’s
awesome. And that’s why we do it.”
Heady stuff, for sure. You know
who would love to hear that
assessment? Mark Lerner, one of the
club’s principal owners. On Monday
night, Lerner, too, was an indication
that this team is closer to being itself.
He beamed from the deck outside the
luxury club behind home plate
during a pregame ceremony
honoring former Nat Pudge
Rodriguez (as well as former
Montreal Expo Tim Raines). Lerner
hasn’t spent much time at his family’s
playground this summer, battling
cancer that ravaged his leg,
eventually requiring amputation
earlier this month.
But with his family, including
patriarch Ted, all around him, and
with General Manager Mike Rizzo
hugging him and giving him a
double-fisted, flexed biceps show of
strength, Lerner’s subtle appearance
on the night Scherzer and Werth
came back seemed fitting, too.
So, taking inventory: Baker said
shortstop Trea Turner will return
from his broken wrist Tuesday. With
that wound healed, they will just
need to get right fielder Bryce Harper
back from the bone bruise in his left
knee (unknown) and setup man Ryan
Madson back from a finger sprain.
Then, they will actually be playoffready. They aren’t yet. But it’s coming.
“Slowly but surely,” Werth said.
So you can start to envision the
team, as constructed on paper, even
though the paper has been in the
trainer’s room much of the summer.
“I don’t think we have to start to
envision it,” Scherzer said. “We know
how good we can be when we’re at
full strength.”
Scherzer’s performance
highlighted that. There had to be a
little bit of doubt given his travails
over the last month, which included
pulling himself from a start just an
inning in, then getting scratched in
the hours before another.
“You try not to worry,” Baker said.
And now, you don’t have to.
“I just like watching him compete,”
said Marlins left fielder Christian
Yelich, whose fourth-inning solo
homer was the only damage against
Scherzer. The little Monday-nightwith-school-started-again crowd of
20,838 liked it, too. The highlights:
the slider he got Stanton to wave at
for a strikeout in the fourth, then the
fastball he muscled by him for the
strikeout in the sixth. Stanton may
have arrived here with an August
slugging percentage of 1.000, but he
left Game 1 a mere mortal thanks to
Max.
And so, then, there was Werth.
Before he got hurt — smoking a
fastball off his foot in Oakland — the
Nats were healthy, and they have
played more games without him than
with him this season. After all that
time, it’s easy to forget what he
brings. The home run was one thing.
But fouling off five two-strike pitches
before his single in the sixth — the
inning the Nats did their damage,
batting around and scoring six runs
— was perhaps a greater indication of
what the Nats still have in his old
bones.
“September should be a lot of fun,”
Werth said. “And hopefully October is
even more fun.”
We can’t know, not yet. But we can
wonder what a full Nationals team
might look like and play like. The one
that’s been here all summer has
relentlessly stepped forward. Not
Giancarlo Stanton — not anyone —
has stopped them yet.

NATIONALS FROM D1
to clinch the division by two
games. Monday’s win left it at 20,
meaning any combination of 20
Nationals wins and Marlins losses
will make the Nationals division
champions for the second straight
season.
Werth’s return overshadowed
that of the reigning National
League Cy Young Award winner,
another key emotional leader,
right-hander Max Scherzer, who
had not started since Aug. 13 because of an ailing neck. Scherzer
allowed one run in seven innings,
scattered five hits and struck out
10 — a typical Scherzer outing,
which is exactly what the Nationals hoped to see.
Among the more emotional returns Monday was that of Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner
— son of family patriarch Ted —
who returned to Nationals Park
for the first time since losing a leg
to cancer this summer.
Mark Lerner has been a fixture
in his seats near the Nationals’
dugout, just behind the home ondeck circle, since the team moved
to Nationals Park in 2008. On
Monday, he sat in a wheelchair, a
little higher up, where Nationals
General Manager Mike Rizzo,
Screech the mascot and several
others came over to welcome him
home.
Werth also got a warm welcome
— a standing ovation — in the
second inning as he headed to the
plate for his first at-bat since returning from the disabled list. He
tipped his helmet to the crowd
before stepping back in and
grounding out to second base,
which nobody in the stands
seemed to mind. His value to these
Nationals, whatever one thinks
that is, has never been describable
in statistics alone. Werth’s value
down the stretch, for what might
be his last playoff push with these
Nationals, will likely transcend
statistics, too.
The fourth-inning home run
and the celebration that followed
— one that might seem out of place
in late August for a team with a
lead like the Nationals’ — exempli-

fied the things Werth brings that
others cannot. So many Nationals
veterans have honed stoicism, and
for many of them, it works. But
Werth has never felt a need to
apologize for emotion, or any need
to downplay what this season
means to him. The Nationals’
emotional leader has returned.
“He hit that bomb, and old
Grandpa looked over at the dugout and gave a big scream,” Scherzer said. “So you know he’s back.”
Werth also singled in the sixth
after an 11-pitch at-bat and eventually ended up scoring when
Howie Kendrick hit a bases-clearing triple under the normally reli-
able glove of Christian Yelich in
center field.
Someday soon, when Bryce
Harper returns, the Nationals will
have to decide whether Kendrick
or Werth starts in left field — and
sitting Kendrick won’t be easy given he is hitting .348 since joining
the Nationals. Those answers can
come later. Monday was about
renewal.
Kendrick’s triple sparked a sixrun inning, the kind of outburst
that was common for this offense
before the injuries but has become
scarce for it since. The Nationals
scored more runs in that inning
than they had in all but one of
their previous nine games.
Meanwhile, Scherzer looked
strong in his return from recurring neck stiffness that forced him
to the disabled list for the first
time in his Nationals career. His
fastball touched 97 mph and sat at
95, which is Scherzer’s normal
range.
He allowed a home run to Yelich
and walked a few batters he might
not normally. He yanked more
fastballs past the outside corner of
the plate than he usually does. But
he still struck out at least 10 for the
14th time this season and 63rd
time in his career. His ERA fell to
2.21, second best in baseball to
Clayton Kershaw (2.04). Most importantly, he looked and said he
was uninhibited by neck trouble.
“As long as I got my pillow and
my neck exercises,” Scherzer said,
“I’ll be fine.”
Scherzer was not missing from
the rotation for long. Werth was
out for what seemed to him like
forever. The Nationals have them
both back now.
Just as this team was starting to
show the wear and tear of injuries
and inexperience, Scherzer and
Werth seemed to have brought a
piece of the Nationals’ spring
swagger with them. After the
game, Manager Dusty Baker announced Trea Turner will likely
return to the lineup Tuesday. The
Nationals are starting to look like
the Nationals again, just in time to
enjoy one more push before October.

Harvey forces relocation of the Rangers-Astros series to Florida
HARVEY FROM D1
The Astros, currently in first
place by 131/2 games in the American League West and holding the
AL’s best record, had wrapped up
a road series Sunday with a victory in Anaheim over the Angels
and — with Houston largely inaccessible and under emergency
evacuation orders — had been
standing by in Dallas awaiting
word of their next game.
“The safety of our fans, players
and staff remain our main priority,” Astros President Reid Ryan
said in a statement. “We are extremely grateful to the Tampa Bay
Rays organization for allowing us
to use their facility. We’ll make a
decision on this weekend’s series
vs. the Mets in the upcoming days
as we continue to monitor the
conditions.”
Because they had been home
before heading to Anaheim,
Calif., on Thursday night, the
Astros’ players packed for a threegame road trip, but because of
Harvey, they will now be away
from home for at least 19 games,
not returning until Sept. 14. The
shifting of the Astros’ home
games to a neutral site is reminiscent of Hurricane Ike in 2008,
which forced MLB to move two
Astros home games against the
Chicago Cubs to Milwaukee’s Miller Park.
“Baseball is secondary right
now,” Astros Manager A.J. Hinch
told reporters Sunday. “Our
schedule, our flight times, where
we’re going to be, the buses — all
that stuff is meaningless compared to what everybody is suffering through.”
Harvey made landfall near
Houston on Friday as a Category
4 hurricane and has been dumping record amounts of rain on the
area since, leading to catastrophic flooding and at least eight
deaths as of Monday afternoon.
More rainfall is expected
throughout the week.
The Texans have also been hunkered down in Dallas since the
weekend, and on Monday, they
announced that their preseason
finale against the Cowboys,
scheduled for Thursday night in
Houston, has been moved, too.
The game now is set to be
played at 8 p.m. Eastern on
Thursday at AT&T Stadium, the
Cowboys’ home in Arlington, Tex.
The Texans have been practicing this week at the Cowboys’
facility in Frisco, Tex. Players have
spoken about their concerns
about their family members in
Houston dealing with the historic
flooding.
“It’s like a punch in the gut,”
cornerback Johnathan Joseph
said, according to the Houston
Chronicle. “You want to be back
there for your city, your family, of
course your kids. They’re obviously young, so they don’t really
understand exactly what’s going
on, so you try to explain to them,
talk to them as much as you can
and keep them at ease.”
It is not clear when the Texans
will return to Houston. Their
Davis’s big hit keeps Orioles on track
ORIOLES 7,
MARINERS 6
BY
P ETER S CHMUCK
baltimore — Right-hander
Chris Tillman pitched 51/3 innings
on Monday night and again fell
victim to some faulty command,
walking four and allowing two
home runs in the Orioles’ 7-6
victory over the Seattle Mariners
before 15,106 at Camden Yards.
First baseman Chris Davis finally decided a back-and-forth
game with a tie-breaking RBI
double in the seventh inning as
the Orioles won for the fifth
straight time and moved above
.500 (66-65) for the first time
since June 11.
Tillman was effective and efficient through three innings, giving up just two hits and holding
down his pitch count while the
O’s built a 3-1 lead, but he walked
a pair of hitters in the fourth
before left-fielder Ben Gamel hit
a two-out, three-run homer to
temporarily give the Mariners
the lead.
The Orioles answered immediately with two runs in the bottom
of the fourth and added a run in
the fifth on a home run by Adam
Jones, but Gamel was having the
night of his life. He came up with
the bases loaded in the sixth and
tied the game with a two-run
single to center that gave him a
career single-game high with five
RBI.
Reliever Mychal Givens allowed that hit, but the two runners who scored were charged to
Tillman, who allowed six runs on
just three hits. Donnie Hart and
Darren O’Day pitched scoreless
innings before Zach Britton finished up.
The Orioles have averaged 7.3
runs per game over their past
seven games and rolled out 16
hits on Monday night. Manny
Machado, Trey Mancini and Welington Castillo each had three
hits and everyone in the starting
lineup had at least one.
When Jones went deep in the
fifth inning, this became his
seventh straight season with 25
home runs or more.
He owns the third longest such
streak among active players and
the longest that is on-going He is
back on pace to hit more than 30
homers for the third time in his
career.
Reserve outfielder Craig Gentry lined a bases-loaded single to
left field in the fourth inning to
tie the score after Tillman gave
up a three-run homer in the top
of the inning.
The hit raised his batting average with runners in scoring position to .333 (6 for 18) and kept
him on a roll since returning
from Class AAA Norfolk. He
came back July 30 and is batting
.359 (14 for 39) since then.
Castillo drove in two runs with
a single in the second inning, so
he probably gets a pass for this,
but he got himself thrown out at
second to end the inning when he
tagged up behind Davis on a
flyout by Gentry with the sizzling
Tim Beckham coming to the
plate.
— Baltimore Sun
regular season opener is scheduled to be played at home Sept. 10
against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans and their owner,
Robert McNair, donated $1 million to the United Way’s disaster
relief efforts. That contribution
was matched by the NFL Foundation, the league announced. Texans standout J.J. Watt raised
$500,000 online within 24 hours,
beating his original goal of
$200,000, and increased his
fundraising target to $1 million.
“I think that the most important thing right now is the family
and friends and the city of Houston back home,” Watt told reporters Monday.
“Making sure they’re safe,
making sure they’re taken care of.
And if there is something played
this week, I think we should
definitely involve some sort of
fundraiser, some sort of way to
benefit the people back home.
Because . . . this is a much bigger
issue than just a football game.”
The Houston area’s college
football teams were also displaced by Harvey, with the Houston Cougars temporarily headquartered at the University of
Texas in Austin — where former
Cougars coach Tom Herman now
presides — as they prepare for
their opener, Saturday at TexasSan Antonio.
The Rice University team spent
the past week in Sydney, where
the Owls lost to Stanford, 62-7,
and had made their way Monday
to Fort Worth, where they will set
up shop at TCU’s facilities in
preparation for their next game,
Sept. 9.
The biggest collegiate game
scheduled for this weekend in
Houston was the AdvoCare Texas
Kickoff between LSU and BYU on
Saturday at NRG Stadium. That
game now will be played at the
Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, with kickoff set for
9:30 p.m. Eastern. ESPN announced the move Monday.

Shortstop Turner to be
activated on Tuesday
Slowly but surely the Washington
Nationals are becoming whole
again. On Monday, they got a
double dose of encouraging news
when Jayson Werth homered in
his first game since early June
and Max Scherzer stifled the
Miami Marlins over seven
innings after a rare trip to the
disabled list in an 11-2 win at
Nationals Park. They’re slated to
welcome back another key cog
Tuesday: After Monday’s victory,
Manager Dusty Baker announced
shortstop Trea Turner will be
activated from the disabled list
after missing 51 games with a
broken right wrist.
Turner hasn’t played for the
Nationals since a fastball thrown
by Cubs right-hander Pedro Strop
fractured his right wrist on June
29. He began a rehab assignment
on Aug. 21 and appeared in seven
games between Class AAA
Syracuse and Class A Potomac. He
went 2 for 21 with seven
strikeouts and a walk, playing
shortstop in every game but one.
Turner batted .279 with a .746 onbase-plus-slugging percentage
and 35 steals in 68 games before
his injury this season.
Without Turner and Stephen
Drew, who was placed on the
disabled list July 29, the
Nationals turned to Wilmer Difo
as their everyday shortstop, and
he delivered. The 26-year-old is
batting .335 with an .833 OPS
across 45 games, adding solid
defense at shortstop to solidify his
place at the major league level.
Raines, Pudge rung in
Hours before he and fellow Hall
of Famer Ivan Rodriguez were
inducted into the Ring of Honor
at Nationals Park, Tim Raines
spent a few hours playing tourist
with his wife and their two
daughters around Washington.
They saw the White House, the
Lincoln Memorial and a few other
landmarks before the 57-year-old
former outfielder’s knee began
aching. It was something he had
always wanted to do, because he
had never been to Washington
before. Ever.
“I never played here,” Raines
said. “I never played one game
here. Actually, this is the first time
I’ve ever been to Washington,
D.C.”
The setting was more familiar
to Rodriguez, who became the
first former Nationals player
inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Rodriguez played in 155 games
across the 2010 and 2011 seasons
in Washington.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL
Maryland turns to dual-threat sophomore Pigrome at QB
BY
R OMAN S TUBBS
When Maryland Coach DJ
Durkin was asked in mid-August
if he had set a timetable to
announce his starting quarterback, he quipped that the decision would be made sometime
before the first series in Saturday’s season opener against Texas.
It was a Jim Harbaugh-esque
answer from the second-year
coach, who much like his former
mentor at Michigan, has held his
cards close to the vest during
Maryland’s three-week training
camp. So when Durkin announced sophomore Tyrrell
Pigrome as his starting quarterback Monday afternoon, a full
five days before the Terrapins
kick off against the Longhorns in
Austin, it came as somewhat of a
surprise.
But there is no surprise in the
actual selection of Pigrome, a
dual threat who showed flashes
of promise during his rookie year
and entered camp with perhaps
the most momentum of any player at the position after a productive spring and summer. That he
was the favorite to win the job
and did enough to hold off the
competition — including freshman Kasim Hill, sophomore Max
Bortenschlager and injured junior Caleb Henderson — underscores Pigrome’s confidence and
figures to be a comforting sign
for Durkin and his staff.
Hill, a four-star recruit from
St. John’s College High in the
District, is listed as the backup to
Pigrome. Bortenschlager is slotted as the third-stringer.
Durkin has established a reputation for no-holds-barred competition at each spot on the roster
every week, and while he has not
stated publicly that he plans to
use
multiple
quarterbacks
against Texas and beyond, the
position could remain fluid
should Pigrome struggle. A year
ago, Pigrome settled into a relief
role as a backup behind the
oft-injured Perry Hills and
showed glimpses of his electric
playmaking early in the season.
That included a 25-yard touchdown run in his first and only
touch of a double-overtime win
over Central Florida. Pigrome
scored again on his first touch in
a loss to Penn State after Hills
went down, barreling into the
end zone for a seven-yard score
that became one of the highlights
of his freshman season.
But the 5-foot-11, 196-pound
Pigrome also endured expected
growing pains, including in his
first career start against Minnesota, an ugly 31-10 loss in which
he committed three turnovers
and showed just how far he
would have to come as a passer.
He finished the season with a 52.1
completion average (37 for 71 for
322 yards and two touchdowns)
Before landing Texas’s big job,
Herman worked the little ones
HERMAN FROM D1
He also had all the attributes
described by Scott Squires, his college coach at Cal Lutheran, whose
lingering observations about his
former wide receiver include,
“He’s got that charisma thing,”
and, “Guys wanted to gravitate
toward him,” and, “He was fun, he
was funny,” and, “I have never
worried about him ever making it
anywhere in football.”
A journey to the big time
Nineteen years on, here’s a Texas football luncheon in the basketball arena, the Hades of August
outside, and here’s Herman telling
the lunchers he can’t believe it’s
him at the lectern and
Longhorns dignitaries
such as Edith Royal, widow of Darrell Royal, in
the audience. (A standing
ovation occurred just for
her.)
Nineteen years on,
play-by-play man Craig
Way tells the audience, Herman
“There is an electricity.
There is an excitement. This vibe.
This energy,” all referring to a 42year-old Herman, coordinator of
Ohio State’s 2014 offense that
withstood two huge injuries and
helped the Buckeyes win a national championship with their third
quarterback, head coach for two
heady years at Houston. Nineteen
years on, they’re all talking about
how the players have spent camp
sleeping at camp — literally at
camp, on mattresses in hallways.
Nineteen years ago, Herman
had one job offer: to coach wide
receivers for Bryan Marmion, who
had just moved from Cal Lutheran
to Texas Lutheran, which hadn’t
had football in 12 years. Off went
Herman and Michelle, joining I-10
in Los Angeles. They had met early
on at UC Davis, the first college for
each. Briefly, he had missed her
and jettisoned football to be “Joe
Student,” until they decided they
could proceed with both each other and football. They reached
Flagstaff, Ariz., aimed to see the
Grand Canyon, then failed to see
the Grand Canyon as it rudely
fogged up and closed for the day.
Herman, who always took “my
future interests very seriously,”
had eschewed spring breaks, had
done internships and jobs, had
done public address for Cal Lutheran basketball, volleyball and
baseball, had done a campus-radio show, had interned at a sportstalk show in Los Angeles, had been
a “highlight coordinator” for
“NFL on Fox.” They dined in Phoenix, stayed in El Paso, saw the red
dust.
They calmed down in the green
and reached Seguin (pronounced
se-GEEN), a campus of several
blocks with a steeple rising amid
— still in 2017, one of those charmingly tidy Texas fields with hills
behind each end zone and a sign
on visiting bleachers noting RESTROOMS LOCATED IN BULLDOG CONCESSIONS ON HOME
SIDE.
“When I got to Seguin, funny
story, I actually had such little
money that, I can’t believe I’m
telling you this, I bought a used
mattress, fifty bucks,” Herman
said. “And it was used. So I guess
what truckers do is they buy these
twin mattresses, keep them in
plastic, sleep on them for a few
months in their cabs, and then
when they get tired of them, they
sell them back, and then somebody sells them again. ‘Hey, that’s
used, but it’s still in the plastic!’ So
I got one of those for, like, fifty
bucks or something like that. Got
my apartment furniture from the
housing there at Texas Lutheran.
They had surplus desks and dressers and stuff that they’re going to
throw away or give away.”
Looking out for pitfalls
A year later, Herman found
himself in Austin as a graduate
assistant, “overwhelmed by the
enormity of this place,”
for a team with Heisman
Trophy winner Ricky
Williams, and at least
once, he called up Squires
and reported feeling
overmatched. He failed
to assume football could
be a lifelong pursuit for
him and so did not fail to
get his master’s degree.
“I tell people I lived in Austin
for two years and really didn’t do a
whole lot, experience the city,” he
said. “‘Oh, this is your second time
back!’ I’m like, ‘I lived in the
damned field house for a semester.
I’d go home at midnight and come
in at 5:30, but I wanted so badly to
impress Coach [Mack Brown],
Coach Greg Davis, the offensive
coordinator at the time. I wanted
to be the best G.A. they ever had.’”
Then, of course: Sam Houston
State, Texas State, Rice (as offensive coordinator), Iowa State (as
impressive offensive coordinator), Ohio State (as really impressive offensive coordinator), Houston and now this. Here in this
unreal place that can eat up a
coach, he has a little system designed to prevent detachment
from reality. He has told three
people — his football “chief of
staff,” Fernando Lovo, and the
strength coach, Yancy McKnight,
and Michelle — that if they see him
changing, they must say so
straightaway. It dovetails with his
capacity, while at Ohio State, to
show the introspective guts to
state humbly, readily and repeatedly that Virginia Tech defensive
coordinator Bud Foster outfoxed
him that night of the upset in
Columbus in September 2014. (It
cost him sleep.)
“I trust that those three people
in my life are never going to be yes
men,” he said. After all, all three
joined him for the Houston merriment of recent years, the clobbering of Florida State in the Peach
Bowl. “It just seemed like the natural thing to do: Here’s the pitfall of
a certain place. Here’s what I can
do to help avoid that pitfall. I’m
going to do that. I’m going to
implement that, rather than being
so arrogant as to ride off blindly
into that pitfall.”
A man who once rode off semiblindly to Seguin said this in his
office as Texas football coach and
all the commotion that entails,
enough to make you think of
American interstates out there,
with all the dreamers driving
along, maybe even in a two-door
with their luggage atop.

JOHN MCDONNELL/THE WASHINGTON POST
Tyrrell Pigrome completed 37 of 71 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns for Maryland last season.
in 11 games, then went right to
work during the offseason to
improve his footing as a passer in
the offensive system of coordinator Walt Bell, who recruited
Pigrome out of Alabama.
Pigrome didn’t have a perfect
fall camp — he was upstaged by
both Hill and Bortenschlager
during the team’s only open
scrimmage in late August — but
by the final open practice earlier
this week, he was the only quarterback taking snaps exclusively
with the first team.
“A lot more confidence. He’s
been battling. The QB competition is very good. I feel like he had
a year in the system, a year to
acclimate to the college football
scheme and style of play,” senior
safety Denzel Conyers said of
Pigrome earlier this month. “I
feel like he’s taken it very serious.
I’ve seen him over the summer
out here every day, throwing
balls to receivers, getting his
timing. Pig is making great
strides.”
Durkin still has viable options
at backup, including Hill, who is
widely considered the program’s
future at the position. While it
appears that Hill doesn’t have the
speed or improvisational ability
of Pigrome yet, the freshman
arguably has a better arm and
still has the mobility to be a
capable dual threat in Bell’s uptempo scheme.
Durkin also could turn to
Bortenschlager, who held his
own in his first career start at
Nebraska last November. It remains unclear when Maryland
might have Henderson back. The
North Carolina transfer missed
the spring game because of a
right foot injury and after entering August not fully healthy has
missed the late stages of fall
camp with a boot on his right
foot.
For now, the only clarity at the
position is that Pigrome, barring
an unforeseen development this
week, will trot out for the first
series against Texas.

Sharapova serves up a shocker with win over Halep
Wild card returns
to Grand Slam play
with emotional upset
BY
A VA W ALLACE
new york — It didn’t feel like an
opening-round match Monday
night at the U.S. Open.
On a day chock-full of matches
featuring plenty of players familiar only to tennis’s most well informed, two stars lit up Arthur
Ashe Stadium at nightfall. Many
in the crowd stood to applaud
Maria Sharapova as the five-time
Grand Slam champion walked on
court — in an all-black ensemble
that literally sparkled — to play
her first match at a major in 19
months.
They applauded even louder for
her opponent, the second-seeded
Simona Halep.
Sharapova upset Halep, 6-4,
4-6, 6-3, in thrilling fashion, but it
was still early in the first set when
the sellout crowd of 23,771 seemed
to drop its allegiances. The fans
clapped instead at the competitive
play in front of them, and, it being
New York, for the sheer drama of
Sharapova’s return.
They will have another chance
to cheer the comeback Wednesday, when Sharapova faces Timea
Babos of Hungary in the second
round.
Monday was Sharapova’s first
Grand Slam appearance since the
2016 Australian Open, when she
tested positive for the recently
banned heart medication meldonium after losing to Serena Williams in the quarterfinals. Although her suspension ended this
April, she was not given a wildcard entry into the French Open.
She planned to play the qualifying
tournament at Wimbledon but

three sets in a first-round match at the U.S. Open on Monday night.
pulled out because of a left thigh
injury. Physical ailments have in
fact plagued her comeback all
summer — she pulled out of tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati leading up to the U.S. Open
citing a left forearm injury.
Feeling healthy again, she made
her Grand Slam reappearance in
New York thanks to a wild card from
the U.S. Tennis Association, which
gave her the spot as a courtesy to a
former champion. Sharapova won
the tournament in 2006, the second
major title of her career.
Back on the U.S. Open’s main
stage for the first time since 2014
— she missed the 2015 tournament with an injury — Sharapova
played like she had scarcely
missed a match.
“Well, I’ll say this,” Sharapova
said after, her face still streaked
with tears. “When I found out that
I received the wild card, I was
obviously extremely excited. I realized how long it had been since I
played at the U.S. Open. Just the
thought of being back here. When
me and my coach first scheduled
my practice on center court, actually it got moved because they had
some maintenance issues. I was
upset about it because I really
wanted that first practice on center court. Those little things you
kind of take for granted. From the
moment that I’ve been here, I’ve
really understood what this
means to me, to be back and to be
playing.
“. . . Despite not playing a lot of
matches coming into this, it almost seemed like I had no right to
win this match today. And I somehow did. I think that is what I’m
most proud of.”
The 30-year-old tested Halep’s
impressive defense with her usual
brand of risky tennis. Sharapova
dictated play from the outset,
pummeling Halep with a big forehand and blasting her way to 60
winners (and 64 unforced errors).
She broke Halep three times in the
first set, eventually winning it on
the Romanian’s serve with a powerful forehand return.
Sharapova now owns a 7-0 career record against Halep. Her record at Arthur Ashe Stadium at
night improves to 18-0.
The stakes of the match were
higher for Halep.
The second-ranked woman in
the world, Halep was one of seven
women in position to take the No.
1 ranking from Karolina Pliskova
at the end of the tournament. She
has had three opportunities since
May to grab the top ranking but
has failed to do so each time. As a
method of self-preservation as
much as anything, she has since
tried to put that summit out of her
mind.
“That’s tennis, I cannot say anything,” Halep said. “I gave everything I had. Today she was stronger. I have just to go and work
harder, to improve in my serve
more.”
Against Sharapova, the Romanian took a set and change to
steady herself mentally but
charged back in the middle of the
second set. Down four games to
one in the second, she took advantage of Sharapova’s 27 unforced
errors and muscled her way
through to win five straight games
to even the match.
Sharapova retreated into the
locker room before the third set,
collected herself and reemerged in
control once again.
When Halep’s final shot went
long, she sunk to her knees and
placed her hands over her face.
She covered her mouth — almost
in disbelief — and her eyes welled
with tears as she jumped up to
shake Halep’s hand.
“I felt like my team and I have
been through a lot,” Sharapova
said of her emotions on court. “To
be in that moment, to be competing there, to see them with me.
Tennis is a very individual sport.
You feel like it’s just you most of
the time out there. Since I’ve come
back, I feel like I’m on a team. You
know, I’m not just winning for
myself, but I’m winning for everyone that has stood behind me.
That is a very special feeling to
have.”

U.S. OPEN ROUNDUP
V. Williams remains unbeaten in first-round play
A SSOCIATED P RESS
Venus Williams shook off a midmatch lapse to improve to 19-0 in
the U.S. Open’s first round and
stay in the hunt for the No. 1
ranking.
The No. 9-seeded Williams, at
37 the oldest woman in the field,
picked up a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 victory
Monday over Viktoria Kuzmova, a
19-year-old qualifier from Slovakia who is ranked 135th.
Williams entered the U.S. Open
as one of eight women with a
chance to rise atop the WTA rankings by tournament’s end.
It was the first tour-level main
draw match of Kuzmova’s career,
the 967th for Williams, who won
the title at Flushing Meadows in
2000 and 2001.
Williams was up a set, plus a
break in the second at 2-0, when
she faltered. Kuzmova broke for
2-1, then pulled at even at 3-3
before taking three games in a row
to force a third set. But Williams
righted herself there, breaking for
a 2-0 lead, then digging out of a
love-40 hole for 3-0.

Venus Williams lost the second
set but improved to 19-0 in the
first round at the U.S. Open.
Wozniacki breezes
Fifth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki rolled to a 6-1, 7-5, first-round
victory over Romanian qualifier
Mihaela Buzarnescu.
Wozniacki, among eight women who began the tournament
with a shot at the No. 1 ranking,
benefited from 41 unforced errors
by her 133rd-ranked opponent, including 25 in the second set.
Wozniacki, a two-time finalist
at Flushing Meadows, next faces
Ekaterina Makarova of Russia,
who defeated German Mona Barthel, 6-2, 6-1. . . .
Garbine Muguruza opened her
U.S. Open with an easy victory,
looking like a favorite whether she
believes it or not.
The Wimbledon champion,
who has never been past the second round here, beat Varvara Lepchenko of the United States, 6-0,
6-3, in just over an hour. Muguruza is a two-time Grand Slam champion but had just a 2-4 record in
the year’s final major. . . .
No. 5 Marin Cilic followed her
onto Arthur Ashe Stadium and
beat American Tennys Sandgren,
6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, in his first match
since the Wimbledon final, hoping
he’s healthy enough to make a run
through a men’s field that’s been
decimated by injuries.
Cilic hadn’t played since losing
to Roger Federer in London because of a thigh injury, withdraw-
ing from Montreal and Cincinnati,
and is attempting to become the
first player in the Open era to win
the U.S. Open without playing any
matches since Wimbledon. . . .
Denis Shapovalov’s outstanding summer kept rolling with a 7-5,
6-1, 6-2 victory over Russia’s Daniil
Medvedev.

Mystics need
a little luck
to earn bye
in postseason
BY
G ENE W ANG
With three games left in the
regular season, the Washington
Mystics are taking aim at two
marks, one reachable through
their own doing and the other
requiring considerable assistance.
A win against the Connecticut
Sun on Tuesday night at Capital
One Arena would guarantee
Washington a home game in the
WNBA playoffs. The Mystics secured a fourth postseason berth
in five years when they beat the
Indiana Fever on Aug. 20.
Two losses in a row since have
left Washington as a long shot to
claim a top-four seed and the
accompanying first-round bye.
For that scenario to unfold, the
Mystics (17-14), now in the No. 5
slot, would need to win out and
have either the New York Liberty
or the Sun lose each of their
remaining games.
The Mystics, losers of four of
their past five games, trail thirdseeded Connecticut (20-11) by
three games and No. 4 seed New
York (20-12) by 21/2.
“The biggest thing for me is to
be playing better basketball with
some rhythm going into the playoffs,” Coach Mike Thibault said.
“We’ve had no rhythm at all. It’s
just been disjointed really.”
Part of the uneven play, according to Thibault, is attributable to
injuries late in the season. Allstar forward Elena Delle Donne,
for instance, has played two
games since undergoing left
thumb surgery that kept her out
of the lineup for more than two
weeks.
The 2015 WNBA MVP’s first
practice since the procedure was
last Thursday, immediately before a back-to-back, the Mystics’
only such stretch this year. Delle
Donne scored 29 points, matching her season high, with 11 rebounds during Saturday’s 83-78
home loss to the Dallas Wings.
Washington had lost to the
Liberty, 74-66, Friday night at
Madison Square Garden.
“I’m all right,” Delle Donne
said. “Obviously all of our bodies
are a little tired. I think both were
great tests. Unfortunately, we
came away with losses in those
tests, but they are good games to
be in right now, especially with
the playoffs right around the corner. A back-to-back is always a
struggle.”
Guard Natasha Cloud, a top
reserve, has missed the past three
games with a partial plantar fascia tear in her right foot. She
continues to rehab but may not
play again until the postseason,
Thibault said, leaving the club
even more shorthanded during
this critical juncture.
Washington already is without
starting guard Tayler Hill, who
tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee in mid-July. She was the Mystics’ secondleading scorer at the time and has
missed the past 13 games.
Thibault gave his players Sunday off and had them in film
study Monday afternoon, allowing for additional time to rest.
The Mystics’ final two regular
season games are Friday at home
against the Seattle Storm and
Sunday on the road against the
Minnesota Lynx, which has won
three WNBA championships
since 2011.
“We’re going to have to get
back to work in the couple days
before we play a game just to try
to get everybody on the same
page,” Thibault said of his plans
later this week. “It’s going to be
hard. I was looking at our games
lost to injuries, and I was just
shaking my head, not as much
just for people being out but
being out at different times so
you’re always re-scrambling
things.”
Turns out Washington will be
playing Tuesday night because of
another unforeseen circumstance. The Mystics originally
had been scheduled to face Connecticut on July 28 in the rubber
match of their three-game series,
but a leak in the roof at Capital
One Arena forced postponement
until a month later.
After another leak delayed the
Mystics’ game against Indiana for
45 minutes on Aug. 12 — creating
the opportunity for a dance-off
between the two teams during
the interlude — the roof at the
20-year-old arena has undergone
repairs, according to Monumental Sports & Entertainment,
which owns and operates the
facility, in an effort to guard
against additional leaks.
Tuesday’s forecast calls for a
chance of rain throughout the
day.
