Monday Memo: Bodies in parks … Boeing bad news … Long-lost hiker safe

National Weather Service forecast

Body found in Lynnwood park: A man’s body was found Sunday in Gold Park. (See map.) Police are investigating but they don’t think anyone around there is in danger. (KIRO -TV)

What’s more: The body of a young man was found Saturday in a Bellingham park. No ID, no cell phone.  (The Bellingham Herald)

More bad news: Boeing has lost a big Japan Airlines order — to Airbus, of course. Boeing has loomed large in that market for years, but Airbus is apparently poised to horn in. Like we said, not good news.

Now some good news: A hiker missing a week in the mountains was found safe over the weekend. You don’t often hear of that. Especially since she found herself in waist-deep snow. She hunkered down beneath a tree until the weather cleared and she decided it was safe to hike out. Whoa.

Those Seahawks: Uncharacteristic lapses prove costly for Seahawks

And those Sounders: Getting drubbed 5-1 in Colorado was, well, you put in your own description.

And finally, in a move reminiscent of days gone by, an Okanogan woman tried to smuggle a saw blade into an Okanogan jail. She did it last summer, got caught and now has to spend a couple of months in jail herself.
