Trying to get a weekend story done, so I'll let others do the talking:
-Joe Turner, on why big tuition hikes at Washington's state colleges may be in the works,
-Rich Nafziger, on why that would be a bad, bad idea,
-Jim Camden, on how Peter Goldmark is the first Eastern Washingtonian to win statewide office in "...well, a really long time,"
-Jim Camden again, on the looming applets and cotlets battle in Olympia,
-Brad Shannon, on lawmakers who've battled cancer,
and, last but not least, Randy Stapilus, declaring that the most influential Washingtonian of 2008 was...Dino Rossi. (Hat tip to Adam Wilson.)
