The Morning Memo/Friday: Occupy Seattle could get the boot

Weather: Could be partly SUNNY today. High temp: 41. Light RAIN tomorrow and Sunday, of course. Precip always seems to wait for the weekends. Are the kids’ soccer seasons over yet? The details.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Today is the deadline for Occupy Seattle folks to leave the campus of Seattle Central Community College. We’ll update that story later in the day.

Two bodies, four dead dogs and white separatism: The story out of Washougal in Clark County is a puzzler. See The Columbian story. Two bodies found in the rubble of a burned down house have yet to be identified. Before the fire, shots were fired from the home. Two bodies and four dogs were found in the rubble. The home is believed to be owned by a “self-proclaimed white separatist” who suffered with mental health issues.

Lunar eclipse: Remember the one we mentioned yesterday? Well, it’s tomorrow, early in the morning! Let’s hope Mother Nature cooperates and we can see the darn thing.

A very sad story in The Tri-City Herald tells of a 9-year-old Richland girl with an incurable heart disease who was hit and killed while walking to an SUV reportedly driven by her mother. When the girl was 7-years-old, she got to go to Disneyland as part of the Make-a-Wish program. That happier story was featured in the newspaper back then.
