1/19/18: AND THE NOMINEES FOR CORPORATE GROVELING ARE…
Jan 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: Seattle won’t get Amazon’s HQ2; pre-Women’s March thoughts; health-care-crisis comix; there’s a state construction budget at last; and scads of weekend events.

1/18/18: GOING ANALOG
Jan 17th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: Nintendo’s tangible video-game add-ons; Microsoft pleads for AI ethics; what it takes to get a Twitter account ‘un-hacked’; a local TV legend retires.

1/17/18: SHE WON’T BACK DOWN
Jan 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: Deportation threat won’t silence a local Latinx activist; WA’s last GOP gov dies at 91; a ‘landmarked’ Capitol Hill mansion’s being razed anyway.

1/16/18: KING’S SUBJECTS
Jan 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Calls to action at local MLK march/rally; record warm local temps; pesticides vs. orcas; tree poachers nabbed.

1/15/18: THE ‘DREAM’ AND THE ‘WOKE’
Jan 14th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

To start your week after a big-news weekend, read about MLK’s real message & its relevance; Cliff Avril defending Haiti’s honor; how Hawaii’s safe (for now); and a local/national sports legend RIP.

1/12/18: LOVE OF LOAF
Jan 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend letter: The ‘Uncomfortable MLK;’ harsh truth about upward mobility; Boeing off-shoring plane design?; a life form that’s been here since the gold rush.

1/11/18: AMA-BUCKS? AMA-ZLOTYS?
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Money magazine thinks Amazon could launch its own, well, money; judge OKs’ SPD reform progress; Bob Ferguson’s war on the ‘war on pot’.

1/10/18: LET THEM EAT STOCK OPTIONS
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Today: A State Capitol protest against regressive state taxes; Inslee’s carbon plan; a break for DACA ‘Dreamers’; the ‘richest person in history.’

1/9/18: GENUFLECTION REFLECTION
Jan 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Seahawk makes the ‘New Yorker’ cover; another settles a bankruptcy; Amazon suppliers tread a thin line; a look just outside the billionaires’ compounds.

1/8/17: I HAVE THE (LOW) POWER!
Jan 7th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our first Monday missive in three weeks: Seattle DIY radio makes the NYT; the EPA re-hires State Sen. Doug Ericksen; MS fights a gender-discrimination suit; and Rattlesnake Ridge gets scarier.

1/5/18: LIGHTING UP A BATTLE
Jan 4th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Our big weekend letter looks at the feds’ revived threat to legal cannabis; yet another dying Sears; a drive to make the state more environmentally “resilient;” and a conspiracy suit against high housing costs.

1/4/18: WHAT’S IN A (FISHY) NAME?
Jan 3rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Private parties trademark potential hockey-team names; a rare-book dealer’s sudden death; IBM sues Expedia; Motel 6 allegedly “kept a light on” for ICE agents.

1/3/18: A SECOND CUP
Jan 2nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

As “the news” resumes in the new year, we observe T-shirts made from coffee grounds; Susan Hutchison’s split as state GOP head; a still-unsolved civil rights murder; and “global cities” alienated from their own geo-regions.

1/2/18: FOR WHOM THE BELLS TOLLED
Jan 2nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s first MISCmedia MAIL covers the Two Bells Tavern’s final moments; the death of Tim Eyman’s latest kill-transit drive; a drive to restore Indian Heritage High School’s funding; and Teresa Mosqueda’s and Nikki Oliver’s differing views on political progress.

 

THE INBOX AND THE OUTBOX FOR ’18
Jan 1st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

It’s the year when all the kids conceived at the dawn of the millennium reach voting age. And for the 32nd consecutive year, we humbly offer the MISCmedia In/Out List, the most trusted (and only accurate) list of its kind in this and all other media formats now or yet to be invented.

As always, this list compiles what will become ferved and frigid within the coming year, not necessarily what’s ferved and frigid now. If you believe everything hot now will just keep getting hotter, I’ve got some Sears stock to sell you.
