In Brief - June 19th, 2006

Haven't done one of these in a while...Here is today's quick news digest:
  • State Department of Transportation officials are reiterating that the State Route 520 floating bridge over Lake Washington needs replacement, after doing a weekend inspection. For my perspective (shared by all of us at NPI) on why the bridge absolutely must be replaced, read this post.
  • There's an excellent article in this morning's Seattle Times about wind power. More specificially, the construction of wind farms in Central Washington (Klickitat County).
  • Another Kossack, wmtriallawyer, has made the decision to run for office...not elected office, but a party office (his county's Democratic Central Committee).
  • Dick Cheney continues to bizarrely insist that the Iraqi insurgency entered its "last throes" in May of 2005. Think Progress has the video. Jon Stewart is right - it's definitely time for Karl Rove to replace Cheney with a new model.
If you have something you'd like to add, leave a comment.
