Wednesday Memo: Brothers-burglars-jailbirds … Holiday heads-up … No Coyotes for us

C’mon, he’s my brother …  Two brothers who happened to be burglars and have pleaded guilty to several break-ins have indicated they want to be imprisoned together. The Spokesman Review story doesn’t say why they want to be in the slammer together, but can it be for any good reason? Just saying.

Some things to think about this holiday week:

By the way, fireworks are illegal in Seattle and in several other cities around here.

No hockey team for SeattleGlendale to keep NHL’s Coyotes

Hate crime alleged in Yakima: A 52-year-old man could be charged with assault and a hate crime after he allegedly struck a black man when he objected to being called a derogatory name, according to authorities. The two men know each other.  The victim’s condition wasn’t available.

1-year-old run over by car that was backing up: How tragic. The State Patrol report says the cause of accident as “inattention.” KOMO has the most information in its story.
