Seattle Times reporter Danny O'Neil traveled to Great Falls, Mont., to get the inside story on infamous ex-football player Ryan Leaf, who went from college stardom at Washington State to NFL bust to — now — having a string of criminal charges. We talk to Danny O'Neil about his report. // News Through Ross-Colored Glasses: Republicans say Jay Inslee should pick up the tab for the special election to pick his temporary replacement in Congress. Dave Boze has volunteered to be a "compromise candidate" in the first district and serve as a Democrat voting however Pelosi or Inslee tell him. He'd reserve the right to give speeches as to why he thought the vote was a bad one. ALSO: Turns out, most hybrid drivers don't buy another hybrid when it's time to get a new car. // George Zimmerman, the Florida man who claims he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense, has set up a personal website to collect money for his legal expenses. Speaking of, the special prosecutor in the case has called-off the grand jury in the case. // BAD IDEAS SEGMENT: A woman pretended to have terminal cancer so she could have a lavish wedding and honeymoon. BAD IDEA! Also: A Seattle man is accused of collecting state money to care for his mother - who happens to be dead. BAD IDEA.
