Wednesday Memo: Boysen captured … Flood watch … Papal poll

Michael Boysen captured: We’re glad that the suspect in the slaying of his grandparents in their Renton home is in custody in an Oregon hospital after a long standoff in Lincoln City, Ore., yesterday. He apparently cut himself. He’s was upgraded from critical to serious condition overnight. What we want to know is why he shot his grandparents. A few people who haven’t owned up to who they are say in emails that they know Boysen and that he wasn’t violent. Well, maybe in another life …

What about those Sounders! In eliminating top-rated Tigres UANL of Mexico last night, the Sounders became the first MLS side to beat a Mexican team in the knockout rounds of the Champions League. The Sounders did it 3-1 at CenturyLink Field before 20,520 fans.

Flood watches and warnings abound in Western Washington this morning: All the rain in the mountains is causing the rivers to swell, and that has brought flood watches to several rivers, including the Snoqualmie. This just gives us another reason to hate the rain.

We know what black smoke means: Cardinals don’t agree on a pope. Are you following the election of a new pope for the Roman Catholic Church? Vote in our poll.
