Tuesday Memo: Bang and a bullet … Goodbye Redskins name … Jobs poll

Bullet pierces a Seattle hotel room wall. A big bang gave the willies to a family spending Monday night at a hotel in South Lake Union, especially when the father found a bullet next to his daughter’s bed the next morning. Turns out a teen in an adjacent room had a gun, it went off and the bullet went through the wall where the family was staying. Policed talked to some of the teens who had been in the room, but the gun-toting teen already had taken off, police said. Whoa, this could have been much worse.

So long Redskins: You can only applaud the Port Townsend School Board decision last night to drop “Redskins” as a team name and mascot for their high school.

Another 8-year-old boy drowned last weekend: The boy drowned in the White River at a campground in Mount Rainier National Park. Ahmad Asiri, from Saudi Arabia, was visiting the Seattle area with his family when he fell off a log into the water, The News Tribune reports. An 8-year-0ld boy drowned Saturday in Lake Roesiger in Snohomish County while swimming to a platform. His identity hasn’t been released as yet.

Hate your job, do you? KING5 this morning recalled the results of a Gallup poll released last week that said most folks don’t like their jobs. Duh? How about you? Do you like your job? Vote in our poll.

Weather: In a word – showers, showers, showers. National Weather Service forecast
