Morning Memo/Wednesday: Santorum, sex columnist & Google … Shooting in Rainier Valley

Weather: OK, it’s January, so don’t be surprised by this:  Looks like rain today, followed by a chance of showers Thursday and Friday, then mostly cloudy Friday and Saturday and light rain Sunday. Do you see a pattern here?  The details.

Traffic:  Second day of tolling on the 520 bridge during a full-on commute. The bridge had light traffic yesterday, which brought more traffic to the I-90 bridge. Buses are more crowded that usual, we’re told. The map and cams.

Santorum and sex columnist: Didn’t take readers long to find the story on The Stranger’s sex columnist and Rick Santorum…

 Two people shot overnight: Two people were shot outside a Subway restaurant in Southeast Seattle last night.

Attorney Tony Savage: If you haven’t read the obituary on defense attorney Tony Savage, please do. He was a such a figure in defense law at the King County courthouse that he won’t be forgotten for quite a long time.

Gordon Hirabayashi

Seattle native Gordon Hirabayashi, who refused on principle to be sent to internment camps along with more than 100,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II and served time in prison, has died in the Canadian city of Edmonton, Alberta.
