Super fans

The Seattle Seahawks' "12th man" contingent will soon be able to get special license plates featuring the logo of their favorite team, pending approval by the Legislature.

In California, the Oakland Raiders' famously rowdy fans don't have specialty license plates for their cars, but they do get special-edition "Raider Nation" ignition interlock devices after their third DUI.

This means he'll probably be able to pay off his student loans: After teaching himself to write code, a British teenager built a news reader app and sold it to Yahoo for nearly $30 million. Yahoo also gave the lad a job at its London office.

That's great, son, but don't get cocky. A real whiz kid would have snagged a deal with Google.

This means war: Organizers of the Edmonds Egg Hunt say they purposely left the word "Easter" off the event's title, to show respect for people who are not Christians.

Maybe so, but they also showed no respect whatsoever for people who are Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.
