Bedtime stories

Where the wild old things are: Rock stars Bruce Springsteen and Keith Richards both have picture books for kids coming out this fall. The Boss' book is inspired by stories his mother read to him, while Richards' is a tribute to his grandfather.

Let's hope Keith's book doesn't include an author photo, because that would give small children nightmares.

At least he wore a flag pin: That tan suit worn by President Barack Obama when he spoke about Syria, Ukraine and Iraq at the White House on Thursday remained the talk of social media Friday.

For their part, prospective presidential candidates Rick Perry, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz all added, “I will never dishonor America by failing to wear a dark blue suit in 90-degree D.C. August weather” to their list of campaign promises.

Not in their town: The city of Fife, in an apparent attempt to preserve its coveted status as the garden spot of the North Tacoma Belt of Gracious Living, has banned marijuana-related businesses, a law upheld by a judge Friday.

The ban prevents a businessman from opening a licensed pot shop in a strip mall, but has no effect on the sketchy-looking dude handing things to people who cruise through the parking lot behind the Fife Denny's.
