Week in Review: Amazon headquarters, Dreamers, Dave Reichert

Sep 8, 2017

Amazon tells Seattle it wants to see other cities and announces plans for a second headquarters in another North American metropolis.

The only Republican Congressman from the Puget Sound area said this week he won't run for another term. Who will take over for Rep. Dave Reichert?

A Seattle Seahawk who's been sitting during the national anthem to call attention to racial inequity and police mistreatment of minorities said he was violently profiled and assaulted by a Las Vegas cop two weeks ago.

And smoke and ash are back in Seattle skies, thanks to wildfires near the Canadian border and another at the Columbia Gorge that was at least partly started by teenagers playing with fireworks. Listen to the show at noon and join the discussion on Twitter using #KUOWwir.
