Monday Memo: Twinkies poll … Marina fire … Elliott Bay Book Co.

Two people were hurt in a fire at a Des Moines marina and a dozen boats were damaged or destroyed. The two injured people were working inside the boat where the fire began. No immediate word on their condition, but they were burned on the upper halves of their body.
The nanny who saved a 1-year-old child in a stroller from getting hit by a car Saturday surely has a story to tell. The nanny was able to push the stroller out of the way of an oncoming car. The baby is OK, but the nanny was injured. What quick thinking. What a story.

The Elliott Bay Book Co. celebrates its 40th anniversary this month. Times book editor Mary Ann Gwinn recounts how it all began.
