Carmageddon

Carmageddon

Trapped in Everett: The northbound Highway 529 bridge over the Snohomish River reopened Tuesday, but not before drivers endured a nightmarish Monday-night commute.

If she’s eventually convicted, the woman who allegedly caused it all by drunkenly slamming her SUV into the bridge won’t be facing any punishment nearly as severe as the ones imagined for her by the legions of folks stranded on Everett Avenue and Broadway on Monday night.

Game on for Ford: After a seven-year absence, Ford Motor Co. will return to the 2013 Super Bowl with an ad directed by late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

Ford has passed on Super Bowl ads since the 2006 game, when millions of viewers did not see its spot because they’d fallen asleep watching the dud of a contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ah, c’mon, honey — it’s fun! Police in Bremerton say a man resorted to subterfuge in his ongoing quest to get his wife hooked on his favorite pastime — smoking methamphetamine.
