RANDOM LINKS FOR 6/20/12
June 20th, 2012 by Clark Humphrey

  • More tsunami debris is showing up on Northwest beaches. Darn, I remember when all you’d find there were dead seals.
  • Publicola, having just broken up with Crosscut, has announced its nuptials with Seattle Met. The lifestyle mag will own and host the local inside-politics blog, starting some time next month.
  • The Downtown Seattle Association’s raising money to install a semi-permanent family playground at Westlake Park (which would just coincidentally make it a less hospitable locale for, say, Occupiers).
  • Pearl Jam’s biggest nemesis isn’t Ticketmaster but its own ex-business manager.
  • Seattle’s arts world is a nearly half-billion dollar business. And that’s just the nonprofit side.
  • But the arts alone (or the gays or the hipsters) isn’t enough to drive a city’s economy, let alone turn one around. That’s the lesson from Minneapolis writer Frank Bures, who’s out to debunk pundit Richard Florida’s whole “Creative Class” shtick.
  • KIRO-TV’s exposé of an elementary school janitor was a big hunk of lies n’ half-truths, according to some local “media watchdog” types.
  • The president of the U. of Virginia was fired, allegedly for nothing more than insufficiently sucking up to corporate interests.
