Morning Memo/Wednesday: The longest day … Tsunami … Child rapist’s twisted view

Weather: It’s only fitting that on the first day of summer (can you believe it) we will have clear skies, sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. Tomorrow in the upper 70s. That’s all we’re going to say. Enjoy!  The National Weather Service forecast.

Speaking of summer: It arrives here officially at 4:09 p.m.

Traffic: The map and cams.

People with guns: Two sheriff’s deputes were shot in Spokane yesterday, and a homeowner in Tacoma used a shotgun to shoot an intruder crawling through a window. Deputies are expected to be OK. It appears the intruder will survive, too.

Tsunami debris on our beaches: Are you as fascinated as we are that boats, docks and pieces of Japanese houses are washing up on our state beaches following last year’s tsunami in Japan?

Convicted child rapist blames victim’s mother: Enrique Sanchez-Leon, who was sentenced in Snohomish County Superior Court yesterday to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to raping, molesting and sexually exploiting a young girl, blamed the child’s mother because she let him babysit the child, according to a report by KIRO TV. Say what?

Hey, the Mariners are on a streak: Well, it’s not really a streak, but they have won three of their past four games, including a 12-9 victory over Arizona yesterday. Ichiro got four hits, including his 2,500th.
