Friday Memo: Divorce poll … Russia … Robbers

National Weather Service / Forecast

Want a divorce? You’d have to wait longer to get one under a bill introduced in Olympia. The proposed law would extend the waiting period from 90 days to a year. Sponsors say divorce can spawn all sorts of trouble, including  juvenile delinquency, poorer scholastic achievement and poverty. Do you think the change is a good idea? Vote in our poll.

That meteor over Russia: OK, it isn’t local, we know, but have you seen the photos and videos? And people were injured from the darn thing. Some folks thought the world was coming to an end. Didn’t a giant meteor kill off the dinosaurs?

Crips gang from L.A. responsible for Kirkland bank robbery? Federal prosecutors say members of the Four-Tre Crips gang were behind the Kirkland robbery and other stickups around the country last year. The gangsters were rounded up in Olympia when they tried to board a bus for Los Angeles. A bus as a getaway vehicle. Isn’t that something. KING5 has the story.

Men’s college basketball is good, and not so good: The Zags are on a roll, but the UW Dawgs are so-so and the poor Cougs, well, to say they are struggling is perhaps generous. Just saying.

Nice weather: While the chart up there says areas of fog, the National Weather Service also says there could be sun this afternoon and 54 degrees. Likin’ it.
