MORNING HEADLINES: E-cigs and your run-of-the-mill politicians

Fatal shooting at Spokane Pepsi plant A security guard at the Pepsi bottling facility near Myrtle and Pacific died after being shot last night. The shooting occurred after an argument erupted between the guard and a group of people near the plant. No arrests have been made, even though the shooter was taken into custody. (KXLY)

After all the mud Former candidates for Spokane County prosecutor — Dave Stevens and Chris Bugbee — both threw their support behind the incumbent prosecutor, Steve Tucker, after both failed to make it through last week's primary. Their endorsements come after months of not-the-nicest talk about Tucker, who Stevens called an "absent administrator" and who was fired by Tucker after announcing his candidacy. Ah, partisan politics. (SR)

Smoke this unregulated machine After  years without any governmental oversight, electronic cigarettes may fall under the angry auspices of the Food and Drug Administration. Next month, a federal judge will hear oral arguments in a case where the FDA will argue it should oversee the fledgling industry, which brings in an estimated $100 million a year. (WSJ)
