Morning Memo/Wednesday: Amanda Knox’s ex … Robber’s Porsche … Electric rates

Weather: Downright chilly this morning, no? It’s supposed to make it to the upper 60s or low 70s today. The afternoons have been great, sunny and clear. A tad cooler, but we can live with that. Tomorrow and Friday are looking even better with temperatures in the upper 70s. Feels like summer to us. But then it gets cooler over the weekend. At least there’s no rain. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Amanda Knox: Her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was convicted but later exonerated along with Knox in the slaying of Knox’s British roommate in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, says in his new book that the way they acted after Meredith Kercher’s death was rather odd, but they weren’t responsible for the killing. Sollecito and Knox, who is writing her own book, were seen kissing and hugging outside the house where Kercher died and at a store where Knox was buying underwear.

A Porsche? Did the fellow who robbed a North Seattle bank really need the money if he got away in a Porsche? OK, it was a 944, but still.

Electricity bills going up? Seattle City Light wants to raise rates about 10 percent over the next two years. We’re sure you’re delighted at that prospect.

Window washer falls: A man who’s been washing windows for three decades up in Bellingham is in serious condition after falling through a second-story glass awning yesterday. The Bellingham Herald has the story.
