Morning Memo/Monday: Amanda Knox memoir … Dead orca …Gay marriage

Weather: It’s raining today, if you haven’t noticed, with a high around 47 (it was 47 yesterday) and gray skies. Oh, yeah, they are gray when it rains. Nevertheless, rain’s in the forecast tomorrow, but, hey, could be mostly sunny Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. (Don’t believe that chart over there …) Friday we’re back into the upper 50s. Nice. No rain predicted Wednesday through Friday, but then rain on the weekend, of course.  The National Weather Service forecast.
