Being there

All is well in the garden: If you walk by the governor’s residence in Olympia on a summer evening, you might see Gov. Jay Inslee watering vegetable gardens installed in 2013 (Page B2).

If being the governor gets especially gnarly in the months to come, perhaps Inslee will be tempted to trade jobs with the Capitol gardener.

No targets at Target: Target has asked its customers to kindly refrain from bringing firearms into its stores, even in states like Georgia where guns are legal pretty much everywhere.

Target’s CEO says the retailer wants a “safe and inviting” atmosphere in its stores. Besides, guns won’t stop Russian hackers from stealing your credit card information.

Also, no paparazzi: Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of the “Grand Theft Auto” video games, claiming the latest installment created a character based on her without her permission.

Lohan complained that the character is a totally inaccurate depiction of her, since it neither drunkenly vomits in public nor inadvertently exposes itself while disembarking from taxis.
