(Please note: We are not talking about pumpkin pie filling — we mean 100 percent pumpkin puree, with no added sugar or spices.) This is not a list of recipes for pumpkin pie, because we don’t want to put canned pumpkin in a corner. These recipes also present good ways to use any leftover pumpkin puree you’re likely to end up with this season. Pasta With Creamy Pumpkin Sauce, above. Tastes decadent, but it’s a healthful blend of short-grain brown rice, low-fat milk, pumpkin puree and maple syrup, with a slew of warming spices tossed in, too.

Warren, D-Mass., took the rare step Monday of sharing DNA test results examining her long-challenged Native-American bloodline. “Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American,” Republican National Committee spokesman Mike Reed said in a statement Monday. If she's 1/64 Native American, it amounts to 1.5 percent, or greater than the average European American. Warren, who is mulling a 2020 presidential run, repeatedly has been mocked by President Trump for claiming Native American heritage. "By the way, @ realDonaldTrump: Remember saying on 7/5 that you’d give $1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry?

America’s housing stock is laughably depleted, and affordable units are demolished all the time to make way for more lucrative luxury condos. For the renters most in need, there are only 35 units available for every 100 extremely low-income households.

Share your experiences with us, and we can help you tell your story — the real story of housing in America.

Regarding your editorial “Democrats Sing, the ABA Dances” (Oct. 11): Memo to Democrats and the ABA—drop it. It is too much to hope you get over it, but understand that continued pursuit of Justice Brett Kavanaugh isn’t a winner. Unlike an aggressive defense lawyer in a criminal trial, the Republicans were quite smart to avoid relentlessly going after the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. They understood that this was political theater, not a criminal trial. They even (sort of) reined in President Trump.

Sears Holding Corp. SHLD -23.83% says it faces “catastrophic consequences” as it struggles through bankruptcy if it can’t repair its unraveling supply chain and keep merchandise flowing to stores and warehouses. Sears owes $16.7 million to transportation and logistics providers, including nearly some $15.8 million due in the next 30 days. “It is vital to the success of the Debtors’ chapter 11 strategy... that they be able to repair its supply chain and relationships with key vendors,” Sears said in court filings. Disputes over payments in bankruptcy to logistics providers can kneecap efforts to turn around troubled retail operations. Even vendor support wasn’t enough to shepherd Toys “R” Us through restructuring after the retailer sought bankruptcy protection in September 2017.

A pile of shoe boxes sits near the White House on the day Kanye West visited. (Mark Wilkins)When he visited the White House last week, Kanye West didn’t just leave behind a bunch of selfies and some Very Deep Thoughts — he gave his hosts some pretty sweet kicks to remember him by. West showed up at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with at least six boxes containing pairs of Yeezys, the athletic shoes he created for Adidas, presumably to offer up as gifts to Trump and others. White House employees are barred from taking most gifts from lobbyists, people with business before the White House or foreign officials. The West Wing staffers might have to report such gifts, and they might have to be checked out by the White House counsel, but otherwise, the Yeezys seem to pass muster.

Not long ago in this space, I pondered the concept of the Washington “bucket list” and asked readers to chime in with their suggestions. My marching orders were squishy: A bucket list is typically more aspirational than achievable, more “snorkel in Tahiti” than “walk on the Mall.”The “Exorcist” steps in Georgetown. “They are like finding relics from an earlier civilization,” Stan wrote. When he started working in Foggy Bottom three years ago he put “catching a snakehead in the Tidal Basin” on his D.C. bucket list. Speaking of graves, there’s Aspin Hill Memorial Park, the Silver Spring, Md., pet cemetery where J. Edgar Hoover’s dog, Spee De Bozo, is buried.

Lloyd B. Thomas Jr. (Letters, Oct. 4) doesn’t cite Martin Feldstein’s complete statement. Mr. Feldstein didn’t isolate rising interest rates as the cause of a recession but noted the effect of rising interest rates on the stock market (“Another Recession Is Looming,” op-ed, Sept. 28). Mr. Feldstein’s states that if, for example, the 10-year Treasury goes to 5% investors will almost certainly rebalance their portfolios from risky assets (stocks) to risk-free assets (Treasurys). Such rebalancing will take the wind out of the stock market’s sails, and very possibly a recession will result.

When the activist Tarana Burke started the original Me Too movement more than a decade ago on MySpace, she never imagined what a force it would become. There is also a plan, in its early stages, to work with Hollywood writers rooms to address how they handle sexual abuse on the screen. In a recent interview at a friend’s apartment in Manhattan, Burke discussed the future of the movement, the #HimToo backlash and the added complications facing black survivors. The site is rolling out in phases: Phase 1 will have two resource libraries, one that’s specifically about finding healing resources, and one that’s about finding advocacy resources. So, if you want to find out who is doing stuff in your community, you can find it on the advocacy side.

“Many of these people have no—they have no homes,” Mr. Trump said after arriving at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle. “They need food, they need water.”At a distribution center in Lynn Haven, north of Panama City, Mr. Trump passed out water bottles with first lady Melania Trump. Mr. Trump visited with a couple farmers and sought to reassure them. “We just left Florida and the people there are thrilled with our people and our talent,” Mr. Trump said during the briefing. Pressed by a reporter on the contribution of climate change, Mr. Trump said, “We’ve been hit by the weather, there is no doubt about it.

And he said it wouldn’t last. Well, Pete Davidsonjoked about a possible breakup with Ariana Grande on “Saturday Night Live” two weeks ago. In the faux interview between Jost and Davidson, Jost asked about a possible prenup. “God forbid we split up, and she takes half my sneakers,” Davidson jokes around the 1:40 mark in the video below. “I believe in us and all, but you know, I just want to, like, make sure that she can’t go anywhere,” he said.
Alyssa Milano shared a powerful and emotional message for her 4-year-old daughter, Elizabella, on Monday ― one year to the day after the actress tweeted “me too.”“One year ago I recorded this for my daughter, explaining why I shared my story of sexual assault. I never expected to release it publicly,” the actress tweeted. “Now, I feel it’s too important not to share.”Milano recorded the video on Jan. 18, 2018, just three months after the Me Too movement captured the attention of the world. In the video, Milano speaks directly to Elizabella and describes why she wrote the now-famous callout on Twitter asking women to write “me too” if they had ever experienced sexual assault or harassment. “When you get older and you watch this video, I wanted you to know that one night when I was lying in bed with you I looked down at you, and your sweet beautiful face,” Milano says in the video as she holds back tears.

Comedian Patton Oswalt is rather legendary when it comes to responding to Twitter trolls. “Alanis Morissette doesn’t even have a song for the irony of Patton Oswalt making fun of virgins ... ” Augie wrote, including a photo of the comedian with his shirt off. Oswalt responded first by taking a self-deprecating dig at himself, reminding Augie that there are “WAY fatter pictures” of him out there. https://t.co/YJEosMG44b — Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) October 15, 2018
But the media really, really don't like President Trump and his allies calling them a mob. Any disagreement between President Trump and the rest of the Republicans on the Hill or wherever they are, it is something that instantly grabs everybody's attention. The bottom-line is Kanye does not fit in ideologically with the rest of Hollywood and with most of the media right now. TRUMP: Media is speculating. And that's the part that people don't know, right, is that you're all friends.
