Bus sex: A police officer caught a Community Transit bus driver having sex with a passenger in some bushes in Marysville the other day, and now the bus driver has quit before the transit service could discipline him. Cops say the sex, which occurred during the driver’s 20-minute break, was consensual and no law was broken. One expensive break, though. KIRO has the story.
Speaking of sex … Well, sort of: The Spokane City Council is ready to pass an ordinance designed to curb bikini barista wardrobes from being too revealing. A community group doesn’t like that baristas at some espresso stands are all but naked. Oh, and body paint doesn’t pass muster under the propose ordinance. KREM has the story.

Also, Times columnist Danny Westneat notes that the $8.7 billion state tax subsidy the Legislature has given Boeing to make sure it doesn’t take its business elsewhere is the largest granted to a private company in American history.
And on a lighter note, there’s a live online chat today with UW men’s basketball coach Lorenzo Romar. It starts at 1:30 p.m.
