You won’t have Aaron Reardon to kick around anymore: The departure of County Executive Aaron Reardon will mean a change of leadership in county government and possibly less bureaucratic speak in official statements. Among Reardon’s last words as executive: “Together we have modernized and transformed Snohomish County government from a silo-based bureaucracy to a more dynamic, network-driven organization focused on outcomes as opposed to processes.”
As best we can tell, we think Reardon meant that:
- Previous county administrations had their offices in grain storage buildings; and
- He spent most of his time on Facebook.
This is your father’s Oldsmobile: A new study shows the fastest growing segment of the population to buy new vehicles are 55- to 64-year-olds, who are 15 times more likely to buy a new car than 18- to 24-year-olds.

Spanky, you have the floor: Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly was openly critical of several male Fox colleagues who earlier this week bemoaned a report that women were now the primary breadwinners in 40 percent of U.S. households, suggesting that kids were better off when moms stayed at home. Kelly, herself, is a mother of two.
Stung by the criticism, Lou Dobbs, Erick Erickson and others retreated to the Fox News He-Man Women Haters Executive Treehouse and put out the “No Icky Gurlz Allowed!” sign.
