MORNING HEADLINES: The cuts keep on comin'

Posted By on Wed, Jul 27, 2011 at 7:21 AM

Flight canceled -- Southwest Airlines has eliminated its flights between Spokane and Seattle, leaving only Horizon/Alaska from directly serving that connector. (SR)

Federal Bureau of Incorrect Procedure -- You'd think a high profile arrest would require even more caution than a regular one, but apparently the FBI screwed up the arrest of alleged MLK, Jr. Parade bombmaker Kevin Harpham. They didn't tell him why he was being detained or show him a warrant. As a consequence, anything Harpham said in the first two and a half hours after his arrest is inadmissible. (KXLY)

Return to sender -- Blame it on FedEx or UPS or that new fangled e-mail. The new potential post office closure list has come out, listing three Spokane area post offices. (KREM)

It's a Locke -- Gary Locke, Commerce Secretary and former Washington state governor, has been named ambassador to China. It's a position vacated by one Jon Huntsman, who left the position to run for president (a decent excuse.) (BBC)
