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?

7/13/18: WE’RE ALL BEZOS ON THIS BUS
Jul 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The lastest in anti-Jeff Bezos street art; Rainier Bank bond holders finally get paid; Brandi Carlile starts a women’s music fest in Mexico; what Bastille Day means to me.

7/12/18: TEMPLE, DOOMED
Jul 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Another grand U District church building’s about to go away; a beloved local worker’s taken by ICE agents; is Seattle real estate crash-bound, or is that just wishful thinking?

7/2/18: ‘THE AMERICAN PROMISE’
Jul 1st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Quotes from the SeaTac immigrant-rights rally; another threat to salmon (and hence orcas); where’s the mystery pop machine?

6/26/18: RENT ASUNDER?
Jun 26th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Luxury apartment glut; immigrant mothers sue the feds; parking-space stickers going away; a parody/nadir in the bottled water craze.

2/16/18: COMMUTERS IN THE SKY
Feb 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Flying cars (or something like them) at last?; did the state DOL help ICE prosecute Maru Mora-Villalpando?; stop pipelines with wine!

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.’

12/8/17: THE PUCK STARTS HERE?
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: The campaign for a Seattle NHL team commences; the real cost of virtual currency; non-progress in hotel-worker safety; another major Seattle institution approaches its date of death.

11/24/17: DISAPPEARANCE, THEN & NOW
Nov 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your truncated post-holiday missive: art and the fading visibility of blacks now and Chinese Americans then; sex-while-driving crash; #BlackLivesMatter So White (at least in Seattle); a new place to buy our book ‘Loser’ in person (for a limited time).

8/3/17: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES
Aug 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

These here days of summer may or may not be lazy or crazy, but they sure are hazy. Nevertheless, we take some Visine so we can look at a lack of change in mayoral balloting; landmark designation for the 22-year-old KeyArena; a protest against Post Office job cuts; and a guy in a bear suit serving up $200-a-plate dinners.

8/1/17: RING THE ALARMS
Aug 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Is the Two Bells Bar & Grill, Belltown’s “living room” for more than three decades, doomed for yet another high-rise? (And if not, how will it be saved?) Other topics this primary-election day include still more calls for Ed Murray to quit; Police Chief O’Toole’s odd statement on police brutality; the city’s misguided centralized-IT project; and the death of a legendary local cartoonist/illustrator/weatherman/ski promoter/supermarket spokesguy.

7/13/17: ALL’S FAIR
Jul 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Thursday’s big and small topics include King County’s own country fair coming back from near death; an ex-Amazon exec predicting Costco’s doom; a recent “cyberstalking” suspect pleading “free speech;” Mexico inviting (some) “Dreamers” back; and landline-phone nostalgia.

6/12/17: OUT OF (BAT-)TIME
Jun 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL remembers the great Adam West, the local guy who became an icon of ’60s “camp” culture by playing it completely “straight.” We also honor the pro-Muslim counter-demonstrators; tick down the days toward a state-govt. shutdown; and mourn F.X. McRory’s.

6/6/17: POP GOES THE TAX BILL
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL raises a glass of Real Soda in Real Bottles to the enactment of the sugary-pop tax. Other observations view the incredibly shrinking Store Formerly Known as the Bon Marché; local corporate giants vowing to keep fighting climate change; big stuff coming to the Seattle Art Fair; and what you probably haven’t heard about the Evergreen State College controversies.

6/5/17: THIS AIN’T NO PORTLANDIA
Jun 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The alt-right rally scheduled for Portland before last week’s slayings took place, as did several counter-protests, as did arrests and seized weapons and pepper spray. Also in Monday’s MISCmedia MAIL: Anschutz doesn’t want to rebuild KeyArena after all; Dale Chihuly admits to emotional issues but denies cheating an associate; a legendary local bar will be reborn; and a proposed high-rise with a rooftop dome.
