Thursday Memo: Machinists voted, now you can … Harley thefts … Cycle of abuse

The Machinists’ no vote: In a nutshell, with the workers’ rejection of Boeing’s contract offer yesterday, the company may not waste any time offering work on the 777X  to other states. Perhaps as early as today, says our aerospace writer Dominic Gates. Can’t wait to see how this whole mess plays out. Were you surprised Machinists rejected Boeing’s contract offer? Vote in our poll.

Hey, that’s my Harley, buddy. Harleys in Kennewick are disappearing. Three of them have been stolen in the past month, although one of them was found stripped and dumped in the Snake River. The Tri-City Herald reports.

Can the cycle be broken? When you see a headline such as this, Rape suspect, 14, comes from cycle of abuse, relatives say, you can shake your head and wonder. Maybe, maybe not.

We’re still waiting:

Speaking of elections … If it appears that vote-counting in King County is taking a tad longer than usual, election officials point out that roughly 20 percent of ballots arrived after Election Day. That’s higher than usual.

The weather … Maybe showers today and rain tomorrow, but look at this: partly sunny Saturday. Yay! National Weather Service forecast
