Friday Memo: Wife shot dead, mistaken for intruder … Boeing’s better batteries
Here’s what gun-control advocates worry about: A man in Terrace Heights, just outside Yakima, says he mistook his wife for an intruder and shot her this past weekend. The bullet hit her in the neck. She died Wednesday after being taken off life support. She was just 27 and 10 weeks pregnant.
Soggy weekend ahead: At least it looks that way, especially Saturday. So sorry.
Expensive plants stolen: A Vashon Island nursery is out $10,000 worth of plants and a type of soil you just don’t find lying around, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. KOMO-TV reports that the plants included Himalayan birch trees, Japanese maples, hydrangea plants and a rare type of soil. So if you see anyone schlepping these things looking for buyers, just remember we warned you.
That’s Fremont for you: If you haven’t already heard, there’s a guy who wants to put a Saturn sculpture atop a building in Fremont to add to the neighborhood’s eclectic collection of items, including the statues of Lenin and our revered J.P. Patches and Gertrude. Did we mention it will be a glowing Saturn sculpture?
