Friday Memo: ‘God’s wrath’ and a weapons cache … pilot’s heart attack … grocery strike ahead?

“I am God’s Wrath.” Those are words from a manifesto federal agents say they found in the barricaded house of a Spokane man who also had a cache of weapons.

The union represents 30,000 workers at Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC and Albertson’s.
