MORNING HEADLINES: Stopping history, pot gardens

Posted on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 8:19 AM

What's rain? — Yes, there's a chance that the sky will release water on our scorched heads today. And, FYI, there's Halloween merchandise on display at PetCo. So, yeah, summer's over. (NOAA)

No weed at WSU — For at least 60 days. The Pullman City Council voted to temporarily ban medical marijuana gardens for two months last night so it can it collect public testimony. Collective gardens are allowed under a new state law, but like everything else surrounding pot, no one really knows what's legal or illegal, or really what's going on. (KREM) 

Cops heart bounty hunters — But maybe not this bounty hunter, Dennis Kariores, who is unlicensed with a rap sheet. A senior Spokane cop has been on paid leave all year while the department looks into his relationship with Kariores, who is definitely not as cool as Colt Seavers or as badass as Dog. (SR)

Justice Department stands athwart history, yelling Stop — Or something like that. The DOJ has moved to block the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile. So all of you hoping to see Catherine Zeta-Jones chilling on top of that blue and white, tiger-striped globe are out of luck. (Atlantic Wire)
