Zzzzzzz: OK, let’s cut right to the boring news. Boring, as in East Wenatchee. In a pretty feeble attempt to prove themselves unboring, San Mateo, Calif. (where?)-based Movato Real Estate Brokerage (who?) has come up with a list of what its researchers think are the 10 most boring places in Washington. As if San Mateo, Calif., isn’t boring enough for them. As if we care.

East Wenatchee came in at a boring No. 8 on the list, behind other slowmo centers like Covington, Kelso, Bonney Lake and Longview. The ratings were the result of a study of 100 Washington cities and their percentage of youth population, crime rates, nightlife, live music venues and the number of fast food versus non-fast food restaurants. Apparently, East Wenatchee’s retired community, low crime rate, quiet nightlife and abundance of drive-ins upped its score in the yawn column.
