Tuesday Memo: Stabbings … Imagine a CEO … Beaver walks up to a bar

Yet another stabbing: This time a Seattle man was stabbed while at a resort  in Port Townsend. And a 16-year-old girl was stabbed in Rainier Valley yesterday. See our latest story on the fatal stabbing of the JBLM soldier near the base over the weekend.

What should Microsoft’s next CEO look like? Current CEO Ballmer is slated to retire in the next year of so. We take a look at what pundits say about  possible candidates.

Beaver outside Ballard tavern: Our community news partner My Ballard writes that the beaver, found Sunday outside the Sloop Tavern, was injured, who knows how. Seattle Animal Control was called, and the critter was taken to PAWS for treatment. No word on the animal’s condition.

We’re wondering what progress police are making in the investigation into the shooting death of the woman whose body was found on the popular Burke-Gilman Trail in North Seattle last week. Police have said she was not randomly targeted.

The death of the man whose body was found over the weekend  in a Lynnwood park wasn’t the result of foul play, authorities say.
