Morning Memo/Tuesday: Speed-camera poll … Nude photos in cemetery … Child porn

Weather: Yesterday’s drizzle was just a fluke. No rain in the forecast for the next week. Clear skies today through next Monday, and the temperature returns to the 70s Thursday and Friday. Some forecasts say we could reach into the 80s on Thursday. Can’t knock that now, can we? The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Nudes, photos and a fetish website: Someone placed or hung photos of nude women at military veterans’ gravesites in Seattle’s Evergreen Washelli Cemetery, took photos of what he’d done and posted them on his fetish website, according to a story on KING5. One photo was hung on a cannon and another on a war memorial. We agree with one retired general when she said the act was abhorrent. Police are investigating.

Children’s advocacy group supports recreational use marijuana initiative: What? The Children’s Alliance says it supports the initiative because youngsters in minority households pay “a terrible price” for racially biased enforcement of marijuana laws, according to the group’s deputy director.

Poll: Those automated speed cameras: We noted yesterday that the state will use automated speed cameras at Snoqualmie Pass to keep drivers from speeding through the construction zones up there. The cameras will be in an SUV parked along the road and will snap pix of your license plate if you’re speeding. You could face a $137 fine. Do you agree with the state’s decision to use automated speed cameras to make driving safer in the construction zones at the pass?

Child porn arrest at Joint Base Lewis-McChord: A soldier is accused of using Facebook to meet teen girls and force them to send him pornographic photos and videos of themselves, using money, gifts and threats to get them to do it. He threatened to post the images of the teens online if they didn’t comply. KOMO TV has the story.
