The White House announced today that it was shutting down the Russian consulate in Seattle. The State Department says there are intelligence agents working at the consulate and they are too close to sensitive locations like Boeing and the US navel base in Kitsap County. Don Hellman, professor emeritus at the University of Washington's Jackson School of International Studies explains what that means for U.S. and Russian relations. 

Also the Moisture Festival is underway. Seattle has been holding this theater festival for more than a decade, but since it started the word moist has become the most hated word in the English language (or so the survey says). How do you decide to hate a word? 

And the entertaining history of in-flight entertainment.
