Thursday Memo: Bellevue’s hot … Seahawks tired? … Dog and spit
Bellevue, got to love it. It’s been named one of best places to live in U.S.
Thursday night football? Our sports columnist Larry Stone isn’t loving it. One reason: The safety issues for the Seahawks playing on just three days’ rest. (You remember they just played that messy game against the Titans on Sunday … )
Spit and a dog: A man spit on a chihuahua in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood yesterday afternoon. Granted, it’s disgusting, but seriously, were the cops called out on this? Oh, yeah. And they responded.
Windows 8.1 released: The update to Microsoft’s operating system was released today. It includes some features users wanted that were not there in the original version, including a Start button. But it doesn’t bring you to the familiar Windows start page. You get the the tile-based Start screen. There are a host of other new features, though.
Earthquake drill today: The Washington Emergency Management Division says more than 860,000 people are registered to participate in the drill scheduled for 10:17 a.m.
