Wednesday Memo: Passwords compromised … UW student falls from window … Mariners win, again!

You can’t run, you can’t hide: Seems as though we see a story such as this all too often: Passwords vulnerable after serious security flaw found.

Another college student apparently falls from an upper story window: Here’s an interesting comment. Following the report of a UW fraternity student apparently falling from a frat house window, David Hotz, the director of the UW Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, said he was not aware of any incidents of women falling from sorority-house windows. “Unfortunately, men take more risks than women do.”

Escalator safety: You hear about the dangers, but we were surprised to learn that more than 60 people in the state were injured while riding escalators in the past 12 months. That’s the number of injuries since a 42-year-old man choked to death when his clothes got caught in an escalator at the University Street Metro station in Seattle. Many of those injuries could have been avoided if handrails had been used, says the state Department of Labor and Industries.

Mariners are 5-2: Something’s working. Here’s a photo gallery of the M’s 5-3 win over the Angels in the home opener at Safeco Field

Weather: Clouds going away, mostly sunny tomorrow, back to clouds Friday, but Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny and Sunday a tad cloudy. Looking good to us. National Weather Service forecast
