Monday Memo: Fools! … Pot-in-bars poll … WSU prof attacked
April 1 … Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
You want some bud with that Bud? The guv says he wants to find a way to nip in the bud, so to speak, the spread of pot smoking in bars. While we voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use, partaking in public places is a no-no. But wait. It doesn’t appear too many bars are allowing it anyway, according to this story. Do you think people should be allow to smoke marijuana in bars? Vote in our poll.
What happened here? A prof at WSU was beaten and is in critical condition in a Spokane hospital. He was going to his car about 2 a.m. Saturday when someone came up to him and hit him and beat him. He was at the Adams Mall, a university-owned commercial building adjacent to the school’s campus, at the time. Police are looking for witnesses. The Daily Evergreen has a few more details.
Weather: We don’t have to tell you what a great weekend it was. Oh yes we do: What a great weekend it was! Cloudy and some sun this afternoon with temperatures expected to be in the low to mid-60s. Sun and clouds tomorrow. Then we’re talking rain or showers. Damn.
Giant houses are going up alongside existing houses on some lots in Seattle, and not everyone is happy. Neighbors of such structures say proposed regulations to guide development still leave a lot of loopholes for the big abodes on small lots.
Toddler is dead: A 19-year-old man in Tacoma was arrested over the weekend in the death of his 2-year-old son. Terrible.
