But they won't ask the feds for any handouts, no sir. In true Western fashion, Gov. Butch Otter will instead take his six-shooter and hold up Washington State for its gold and jewels. (KREM)

Rat poison — Following the brouhaha yesterday — with Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich criticizing the Spokesman for mischaracterizing his quotes on what was inside the Backpack Bomb, and KXLY's Jeff Humphrey giving Knezovich a bullhorn to repeat his criticisms — a bit of agreement. Humphrey now reports that there was rat poison in the explosive device. He heard it on CNN. (KXLY)
