As everyone thinks there is nothing but bad news coming out of this section of the site, here is a cheery item:

Corinna Harn "just thought it would be a hoot" to bid on the 'Biker Babe for a Day' package at a charity auction two years ago, a chance to go for a spin on the back of a Harley. Two years on, she married Thomas Burke, the man who gave her that fateful ride.

Wearing matching black-leather chaps, the couple said "I do" before more than 1,500 people outside Qwest Field (formerly Seahawks Stadium) at the beginning of Children's Ride 9. The annual charity motorcycle ride and rally benefits Children's Hospital & Medical Center.

"The (Children's) ride in 2002 was our first official date," said Harn, a King County District Court judge. "We've been together since then, and people keep asking us when we're getting married. It seemed appropriate to do it here."

Harn said she spent $1,000 for that auction ride two years ago. "It turned out to be the best money I've ever spent," she said.

All together now, ahhhh....
