Tuesday Memo: Sign of Jesus … 10,500 lucky Sea-Tac parkers … Serial killer
Is Jesus the reason, or is the sign just too big? A man in Pasco, Tri-Cities, has a 6 feet by 3-and-a-half feet decoration outside his home that says “Jesus is the reason for the season,” but his homeowners association says the sign violates the association’s covenants and wants it down. The homeowner says the real reason is some folks don’t like the message, and he’s not budging. The association says the only issue is the sign’s size, not its message.
Parking for free at the airport … Were you among the 10,500 folks who didn’t get billed for parking at Sea-Tac? (Audit: $395,000 lost due to faulty Sea-Tac parking machines.) Of course, it’s not a good thing that the port didn’t collect all that money, but, again, did you get to park free at the airport, huh? Is that cool or what? Do you think the people who didn’t get charged should now pay up? Vote in our poll.
