This week rape and sexual harassment got a very public face when we learned that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is accused of raping several women. He’s been settling sexual harassment claims for decades, and many, many people knew about it and said nothing.

When Amazon said "we want a second headquarters," did you really think it was going to be right next to its first headquarters?

And finally, we discuss the race for Seattle's next mayor and the battle in the 45th district.
