Wednesday Memo: 777X poll … Road-rage plea … Sunny-days jackpot

States salivating for Boeing 777X feast: Well, we knew it was coming. Now that the machinists have nixed Boeing’s offer that would have guaranteed the plane would be built here, the company is looking elsewhere. Do you think Boeing will build the 777X in another state? Vote in our poll.

Road rage extraordinaire: A Tacoma man got six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and malicious harassment in a road-rage incident last January. William Zesbaugh, 72, thought a woman, who had another woman in her car, had cut him off in traffic. Prosecutors said Mr. Zesbaugh followed the car, honked his horn and ran into the back of the woman’s car. When the woman got out to get insurance information, Zesbaugh hit her with a wheeling-locking device, prosecutors said. Oh, and he told the women, “I know you’re lesbians.” Zesbaugh said in court, “I just lost it.” We agree. The News Tribune has the details.

Great weather: Going to be sunny but cold today, tomorrow and Friday. Wouldn’t it be nice if that forecast held through the weekend? Fingers crossed, yeah? National Weather Service forecast

Father and son shoot, kill hunter? A man and his son have been arrested for investigation of murder in connection with the shooting death of a Hoquiam man who was grouse hunting near their land in Chesaw, Okanogan County.

Man hit, killed by train: A man with a bicycle was hit by a freight train and killed about 3 a.m.  today in Marysville. It’s the 19th fatality on BNSF tracks in our state this year. There were two on Friday, one in Edmonds and the other in Auburn.

March for the homeless this morning: Just so you know, advocates for the homeless spent the night at Westlake Park and plan to march to City Hall this morning with the intention of occupying a meeting of the Committee to End Homelessness in King County. It’s slated to start at 7:45 a.m. and could disrupt traffic downtown.
