He answered the door carrying a shotgun, according to police.

UCLA 44, Washington State36 (final) Now I feel bad about saying Washington State had little talent. That was a cheap shot born of frustration because of undisciplined play by both sides and officiating that was losing control of the game. The Cougars do have some talent, and it's giving the kind of effort that will probably save the team from a post-game Mike Leach rant. Note: we did say probably. At the end it was a one possession game. The Cougars passed for 456 yards and outgained UCLA in total offense by 193 yards.

That is the latest question challenging Washington state officials as they review plans for the first major coal export facility on the U.S. West Coast. While the state is examining the impact of increased greenhouse gas emissions from truck and rail traffic to the proposed facility, environmental groups want them to go a big step further, arguing that slowing coal-based emissions in China starts with stopping coal shipments from U.S. shores.
