Sunday memo: Father’s Day reading, sun halo, Blanco’s grand slam

Happy Father’s Day: Congratulations and a hearty thank you to those who have set out on man’s greatest endeavor — fatherhood. A roundup of coverage: Hands-on dads are mainstream now | Great literary dads | Poll: Most men aspiring to be dads

The slow to develop DUI docket: The King County Prosecutor’s Office typically takes nearly three months to file DUI charges, according to a Seattle Times analysis of court data. The statewide norm is three days.

Get the latest from Paris: We sent our aerospace reporter, Dominic Gates, to Paris for the big airshow. Once again, Boeing and Airbus are going toe-to-toe, this round, over widebody jets.

The old man can still hit a grand slam: The Mariners signed Henry Blanco last Friday. On Saturday, the 41-year-old hit his first grand slam in 13 years to hand the Mariners a 4-0 win. So much for the M’s youth movement.

A circle with an outline: That’s what the sun looked like yesterday. And readers went nuts snapping and sending in photos to commemorate the “sun halo” or “sun dog”. Pretty cool stuff.

Weather: Mild, temperate weather with a good chance for showers all next week. Definitely not bad, but it’s not summer yet.
