12/17/18: THIS IS NOT A PIPE(LINE)
Dec 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Downtown protesters target Chase’s Trans-Mountain Pipeline role; Bumbershoot was lonely this year; will Bremerton get a Quincy Jones town square?; how to properly describe Amazon.

11/30/18: S.A.D.: SEASONAL ART DISPLAY
Nov 29th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Brighten your winter day with cargo-container art; a (too simple?) solution to Hanford waste; City Council candidate doesn’t officially live in town.

11/12/18: A LIKELY ‘PROSPECT’
Nov 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A locally-made outer space drama; no more ‘Safeco Field’; the tough life of Amazon contract drivers; could (the in-name-only) Rainier Beer go away?

10/1/18: CHILI TODAY (AND TOMORROW)
Sep 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A proud holdout dive bar; still more local Kavanaugh and gender-justice fallout; e-scooters are a big hit in Tacoma; putting logs into a river to help the fish.

7/20/18: THEY ACCUSE
Jul 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

#MeToo allegations against a top local “hip capitalist”; a US House candidate dares call it treason; can business leaders solve homelessness?

6/27/18: INJUSTICE ON TRIAL
Jun 26th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Travel Ban court ruling denounced; Maru Mora Villalpando gets a legal reprieve; Sue Bird, Megan Rapinoe, and the almost-naked truth.

4/20/18: KIND OF A DRAG
Apr 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle U allowed a student drag show but doesn’t like seeing it in the school paper; another student rally against shootings; boycotting a ‘bro-culture’ brewery.

4/9/18: HIS OWN PROMISED LAND
Apr 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A local civil-rights legend passes; an historic nightlife spot’s possibly threatened; a pending victory for BC pipeline opponents; how not to rename a supermarket.

12/14/17: NEUTRAL SPIRITS
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: everyone loves net neutrality except (some) corporations and the politicians they own; simply “praising” black women’s not enough; Fisherman’s terminal gets bigger; light-rail expansion to speed (slightly) up.

10/30/17: SUNK TRANSIT
Oct 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another wacky week of news with more supposedly-clever ways to abandon bike-share vehicles; NFL protests get more “meta”; and letting building owners sell their “airspace.”

7/12/17: CRANING AND STRAINING
Jul 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Your midweek missive notes how our allegedly pinko-socialist state has the top “environment for business,” and how that’s partly due to our regressive tax system. Plus: more city-sales-tax fallout; airport robots (not as pilots, yet); stopping tech-sexism from the boardroom on down; and a certain Mariners player who made a certain big play at a certain big game.

6/27/17: THE WAGES OF SPIN
Jun 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle’s higher minimum wage: Boon or Bust? Depends on whose research study you read, and how they set up their criteria. MISCmedia MAIL today also covers a possible state budget breakthrough; reactions to the partial, provisional travel-ban reinstatement; and pictures of the hard-working, often world-weary people harvesting our state’s farm bounty.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/21/17: YOU LIGHT UP MY HOTEL
Mar 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Not much resistance news today, but we do have pix of little houses next to big redevelopments; how the Umoja Peace Center eviction relates (or doesn’t) to the pot biz; another record for UW basketball power Kelsey Plum; and the anniversary of the arson fire that led to downtown’s homeless crisis.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/20/17: TIME FOR SPRING I SAY!
Mar 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As we wait, sometimes more patiently than others, for the ol’ change-O-seasons thang, we take note of particularly dreadful faux-native American kitsch; a serious allegation against a local celeb; another call for less bro-dominance in tech; and the Case of the Paltry Pint Glass.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/3/17: BATTERY CHARGE?
Mar 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As car-free humans get a chance to walk through the Battery Street Tunnel, we wonder what will become of the ol’ thing. We also think about Girl Scout cookie-inspired apparel; the truth of that supposedly “Hawaiian” beer; more fears of a post-ACA nation; and the human failing behind Amazon Web Service’s temporary meltdown.
