Morning Memo/Thursday: Ryan Leaf … Weekend sun … Death with Dignity

Weather: Forget the rain today, tomorrow and Saturday. Look at Monday: Chart says 65 degrees. Yeah, we’ll believe when we see it., Nevertheless, it appears the sun is going to try to peak out on Saturday. And Sunday looks downright sunny with a high temperature of 60 degrees. Time to get out and cut the grass and plant those flowers and veggies. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Ryan Leaf in court today:  The former WSU and NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf is scheduled to answer to charges that he broke into two homes in Montana to steal prescription drugs.

Those Sounders: It hasn’t happened in a regular league match since 2009, but last night Sounders FC beat Los Angeles Galaxy with goals by newcomer (to the team, that is) Eddie Johnson and Freddie Montero.

Teaching assistant fired: Remember we said a teaching assistant at Goldendale High School was charged with having “sexual contact” with a 16-year-old student? Well, she’s been fired, The Goldendale Sentinel says on its website.

Death with Dignity: At least 70 people in the state died last year after asking for and taking lethal drugs as part of the state’s Death with Dignity law, according to the state Health Department.

Cops did OK: Well, that’s what at least 61 percent of those who voted in our poll have said when asked if they agreed or disagreed with this statement: Seattle police did a good job handling violent May Day protesters Tuesday. If you want to weigh in, click here.
