Friday Memo: Boy meets mannequin … Warmer … Amtrak to the rescue

Sex store thief got only half of it. A Bainbridge Island man is behind bars after he reportedly tried to make off with a mannequin from an adult entertainment store in Bremerton, according KOMO-TV. Trouble is, when the man tried to walk away with the mannequin, the bottom half fell off. What’s more, he came back to the store late that night and, wearing the mannequin’s wig, broke a window and grabbed some sex toys and lingerie, according to police. He was caught riding away on a bicycle, leaving a trail of stolen items behind him.

Here are the results of a poll that asked people what they'd be willing to pay if for a Big Mac Meal.

Here are the results of a poll that asked people what they’d be willing to pay for a Big Mac Meal.

Warming up: Mostly in the 60s this weekend, but by Monday we’ll be edging up toward the 70s and there are reports it could reach 80 degrees next week. Heavenly.

Another train trip added going north: Amtrak Cascades starts a third daily round-trip train between Seattle and Bellingham to help those of us affected by the collapse of a section of an Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River. Have you ever taken that train?

We like our high-calorie, artery-clogging fast food, don’t we? A poll we ran yesterday asked folks what they would be willing to pay if a jump in fast-food worker wages drove up the price of a Big Mac Meal. Nearly 20 percent said they’d pay $9-10 for that burger with the special sauce.  You want fries with that? Oops, they’re included in the meal. If you’d still like to cast your vote, click here.
