Saturday Memo: What sun? … Blue Angels? … Super Bowl?

National Weather Service / Forecast

Where’s the sun? Wait and you shall be pleased. We hope. The forecast still calls for sun this afternoon, but you sure can’t tell it this morning, what with all the gray skies and fog. Even if the sun doesn’t make an appearance, it’s still supposed to be a tad warmer than the average high temperature of 49 for Feb. 2. Oh, and that groundhog didn’t see its shadow…

No Blue Angels? Say it ain’t so. Budget cut talks often include the possibility of axing popular programs, perhaps to get people’s attention, and maybe that’s why there are stories out there that say Seafair may lose the Blue Angels show. How important to you are the Blue Angels at Seafair each year? Vote in our poll.

There’s a football game tomorrow. OK, it’s not the Seahawks, but if you’ve been living in a cave and don’t already have the details: San Francisco and Baltimore face off in the Super Bowl and can be seen at 3:30 p.m. on KIRO-TV 7 and heard on the radio at KJR 950 AM and 102.9 FM

Engineered foods. Some folks aren’t too keen on genetically engineer foods, so a legislative initiative that would require companies to label such foods has gathered enough signatures to move forward, the Secretary of State’s Office says. A similar initiative in California failed last year.
