MARIA GOODLOE-JOHNSON

The ousted Seattle schools superintendent left a gracious goodbye comment on the Save Seattle Schools blog, which had been critical of her performance. Her comments on the I Just Got a Huge Severance Check, Suckers blog were pretty interesting, too.

KRIS BRANNON

The Tacoma resident filed an initiative to declare a Sir Mix-a-Lot tune the state’s official song. Not yet filed: an initiative to declare Kris Brannon the state’s official filer of frivolous initiatives.

SHOMARI STONE

The KOMO TV reporter broke up a fistfight in Steinbrueck Park—on camera. Next on KOMO: “Is Shomari Stone Phoenix Jones?”


See who else we’ve invited to the dinner table.
