“I am God’s Wrath.” Those are words from a manifesto federal agents say they found in the barricaded house of a Spokane man who also had a cache of weapons. The man, who was taken into custody yesterday, reportedly is being investigated for stalking a tribal police officer. The author of the manifesto declares himself the embodiment of God’s wrath. Oh, and he also wrote about having a “kill room,” sort of like you might see on TV’s serial-killer show “Dexter” …

Grocery workers say OK to a strike: Nearly 100 percent of the members of the union representing the workers in our area have authorized a strike should an agreement not be reached on a new contract soon. That doesn’t mean they will strike, but who knows. Would you support the workers if they do walk off the job? Vote in our poll. (If you did support the workers, where would you buy your food?) The union represents 30,000 workers at Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC and Albertson’s.

How would you like to be a freshman, living away from home for the first time, walking along the street at night when someone with a gun strips you of your money and your iPhone? Sheesh.

Weather: It was dry early this morning, but we could have showers later today. It could be a bit windy, but not as bad as last night, according to the Weather Service. Rain tonight, showers tomorrow, fog Friday morning. Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy. As long as there’s no snow, we’re cool. OK, we know by our poll Monday that you love the snow 2-to-1.
Traffic: The map and cams.
More power outages overnight because of all that wind. Can we get a break, please.
Locked in the john: A Detroit-area man, claiming he was distressed, sued the company he worked for when his co-workers on a dinner cruise ship on Lake Washington locked him in the bathroom for 20 minutes to a half-hour as a joke, according to The Associated Press. The incident occurred in 2007, and the man and his wife sued for $100,000, claiming he never knew when he’d get out of the john. The man lost at trial, and an appeals court ruled this week that he doesn’t deserve a new one.
Michael Mastro’s goods: A lot of the items once owned by Mr. Mastro, the former Seattle real estate developer who’s gone missing, are being auctioned off in California today, according to an Associated Press story. Mastro, who once lived in Palm Desert, Calif., went bankrupt some three years ago, owing investors $325 million. He and his wife, Linda, disappeared in 2011, and warrants were issued for their arrests when they didn’t comply with a court order to cough up diamond rings worth $1.4 million, according to the AP. The goods include: A 2007 Bentley convertible, a baby grand piano, designer fur coats, hundreds of bottles of wine and about two dozen Dale Chihuly glass sculptures.
