Here a toke, there a toke, everywhere a toke, toke

Ee-i-ee-i-oh

Bacon or Maui Wowie: An Ebey Island pig farmer says he may seek the state's approval to grow marijuana and join a system of growers, producers and retailers being organized by the state Liquor Control Board following passage of the state's pot legalization law.

There would be adjustments for farmers to make: Pigs prefer to have classical music piped into their pens, while pot grows best to Led Zepplin. And farmers use lower fences to keep the pigs in but higher fences to keep the potheads out.



A-fussin' an' a-feudin': Researchers in Pike County, Ky., have found what is believed to be the site of the final standoff in the famed Hatfield-McCoy feud, which ended in the deaths of two McCoys on New Year's Day in 1888 and the jailing of several Hatfield family members.

Further research showed the feud started over a disagreement about whether the Rutherford B. Hayes tax cuts should be extended for all Americans or just those making under $750 a year.



Riding the Sounder? Bring a shovel: Sound Transit has again had to cancel its commuter train service, the Sounder, between Seattle and Everett because of continued concern about mudslides from unstable slopes above the tracks.

The slides are occurring with such frequency Sound Transit is considering making the switch from trains to buses permanent during the region's rainy season, June through May, and calling the bus service, the Mudder.
