Tuesday Memo: Suspended for experiments … SPD whiplash … Really resisting arrest

Scary medical treatment? The state has suspended the license of a popular naturopath, saying he failed to adequately inform and safeguard patients while treating them for cancer with experimental individualized vaccines. Alternative medical treatments have helped many people in a variety of ways — nonetheless, buyer beware.

Backtracking surprise: Seattle’s interim Police Chief Harry Bailey and Mayor Ed Murray have explained the decision to reinstate a misconduct finding against an officer who threatened to harass  a newspaper editor. You might be asking why’d they do it in the first place?

This woman certainly didn’t want to be collared. First, she was stopped by a Spokane sheriff’s deputy for not wearing a seat belt. Then she tried to run down the deputy. Then she crashed her car. She then tried to climb over a 6-foot fence and at some point she tried to punch the deputy, according to the sheriff’s office. Turns out she didn’t want to be put back in the slammer (not sure why she had been in jail earlier) because she was driving without a license and had meth in her car. So is she back to jail? Oh, yeah. She was busted for investigation of assault, hit and run, possession of a controlled substance, eluding police, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest.

Death and taxes: You can still count on them … King County voters to decide on tax, fee hikes for roads, buses

Weather: We’re going to say only this … Partly sunny tomorrow and a high of 54. Can spring be far off?
