Thursday Memo: Hooky for history … Seahawks hot-dog it … Scolding for Boeing

Yes! Students stayed away in droves yesterday to watch the Seahawks parade. (At least we hope that’s why they skipped school …)

Speaking of the parade. Some Seahawks linebackers chowed down during the parade, buying hotdogs as they made their way down the street. Have a look at this video:

We’re sure the machinists would agree: A top aviation-industry analyst says the 777x could give Boeing a significant lead over Airbus, but the company’s strategy of squeezing its labor unions and suppliers risks being  “penny-wise and pound-foolish.”

OK, what’s up with all the cold, darn it? It was 22 degrees overnight, for heaven’s sake. Temperatures are expected to be below normal all the way through the weekend, but we may get some relief next week. That being said, the National Weather Service says there’s a “chance” of light snow tonight and tomorrow night and a 40 percent Sunday. (Yeah, we’ll belief it when we see it.) National Weather Service forecast

Man shot in downtown Seattle: A man who says he was shot several times in downtown Seattle early this morning was found by state troopers near the Mercer Street ramp in Seattle. He was taken to Harborview. Details to come, we hope.
