Morning Memo/Tuesday: Lotta bull … burglar tossed … sea lions

Weather:  Rain today and tomorrow, but maybe some sun Thursday, Friday and … hey, look at Saturday! The details.

Traffic:  Did you ever notice when the media says a major change in traffic is about to happen — think Mercer Mess — it seldom is as bad as feared? Mercer not quite the mess expected. Go figure. The maps and cams.

This KOMO headline says it all: Federal Way resident roughs up burglar, throws him off a balcony

Buckey the Bull, an 1,800 pound brute from Prosser in the lower Yakima Valley, is a star when it comes to bucking cowboys, according to The Yakima Herald-Republic. A bull is rated on how many cowboys it has thrown, and Buckey has pitched 15 of 19 riders in his three-year career.

Sea lions: The recent deaths of so many sea lions here is unfortunate.  Sea lions are protected under the Marine Mammals Act.  Four sea lions and a seal were found dead in West Seattle in 2010. They had been shot, too.
