Morning news meeting, quick solo edition

I'm out the door for my stupid MRI, Michelle's in bed, so this will have to be brief.

It looks like the P-I actually has a good, old-fashioned hard news story, obtained by the sweat and shoe-leather of smart reporters. I haven't read all the way through this, but the gist is that serious crimes -- including sexual assaults and strong-arm robberies -- happen on Seattle public school campuses much more often than we know, largely because the school district and the cops don't report them.

"In a few cases, parents or victims say school officials urged them not to report the crimes to police at all."

The paper got the down low on all this stuff, even scared up and reproduced online some previously quashed case files. Now that's what I'm talking about. Real reporting! Good job, P-I.

The Seattle Times, I don't know. No mention of malaria. Looks like there's some big promo at the top of the page establishing that the 1960 UW football team was good: "'60 Huskies finally get their due."

In other 1960 news: Matassa, Cohen born.
