Snark from our Northwest Bureau

Through a glass, fraudulently: A Renton man has pleaded guilty to fraud for selling generic glass art pieces on the Internet, claiming they were created by Seattle glass artist Dale Chihuly. The man could get up to 20 years in prison for selling the fake Chihulys.

The federal prosecutor said that had the man been selling actual Chihulys he could have gotten life in prison.

Beats squatting over a crevasse: The National Park Service will fly in building materials by helicopter to the 10,000-foot-level of Mount Rainier to replace four public toilets at Camp Muir, a popular destination for hikers and a base camp for those climbing to the mountain's 14,410-foot summit.

The Park Service considered air-lifting a couple of Seattle's problematic sidewalk toilets to the mountain but didn't want to attract hookers, johns and drug addicts in hiking boots.

Sorry, Comcast is already taken: The city of Tacoma is looking to sell the naming rights to the Tacoma Dome, the 30-year-old wooden geodesic-domed arena that hosts high school sports tournaments, Lady Gaga concerts and monster truck shows.

Seeing how quickly the dome's exterior collects a patina of grime, we suggest the city take on Mr. Clean Magic Erasers as a sponsor in exchange for a 50-foot cleaning pad.
