Morning Memo/Sunday: arena traffic … polar bears … perfect games

Weather: Sunny and beautiful today, with the high topping 70. So get outside and do something. If you need ideas, here’s a list of Earth Day events. And here is the National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: Seems pretty clear and open out there today, but keep in mind there’s a Mariners game at Safeco Field at 1 p.m. The map and cams.

But if you want to read about bad traffic, check out Lynn Thompson’s story today about the Port of Seattle and other business interests’ opposition to the proposed Sodo NBA and NHL arena in an already congested industrial area. “Most of this would survive,” says Dave Gering, head of the Manufacturing Industrial Council. “But what part of $3 billion do you want to give up?”

Don’t miss these amazing polar bear photos taken by Florian Schulz, whose book, “To the Arctic” is out now. The movie version, in 3D, is at the Pacific Science Center.

A perfect game: that’s what the White Sox’s Philip Humber threw against the Mariners Saturday afternoon. It was only the 21st in major-league history, a list that includes Randy Johnson.
