2/20/18: ‘ROLLING’ ON THE WAVES
Feb 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

On a relatively slow news day we discuss an ocean-themed bowling alley (really!); a Muslim activist speaking to Japanese Americans; the Yakama tribe suing polluters; and a costly, no-electronics, teen ‘unboot camp.’

2/14/18: OF SPACES AND ‘SPICE’
Feb 13th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

‘Dune’ author gets his memorial park at last; Valentine’s thoughts on jaded cynicism (hint: it’s passé); one more ‘bad apple’ caught at ICE.

2/9/18: ‘FIGURE’ DRAWINGS
Feb 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A cartoon guide to economics; who is, isn’t at city/Amazon summit; minor pot convictions in Seattle are erased; thoughts on the Winter Olympics; dozens of weekend events.

1/31/18: USING THEIR NOODLE
Jan 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Chinese-food maker overcomes automated ‘perfection’; Seattle’s in the electric-car charging biz; school bus drivers to strike; boos for Bill Nye for going to the State of the Union speech.

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.’

1/5/18: 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.

10/25/17: THE ROQ REBORN (SORTA)
Oct 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: A local art legend’s next act; oodles of needles; a “salmon safe” office building; and a retail sector potentially immune to an Amazon takeover.

10/3/17: TO LIVE LIKE A REFUGEE
Oct 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On this day of sorrows, we discuss a VR ‘experience’ with a message; deadly street pills; and whether this latest sick tragedy will FINALLY lead to action.

9/21/17: NOT A DAY TO CELEBRATE
Sep 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The company formerly known as Madison Park Greetings won’t issue more of its hip/cute greeting cards, now that its out-of-state buyer suddenly shut the whole operation down. In further reading today: Michael Bennett’s fan base; love for the rainy season’s start; a Swedish left-activist infiltrates a Seattle “alt-right” meeting; and a local online radio station “gets real.”

9/19/17: TODAY’S MAYOR DU JOUR
Sep 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our third mayor in a week will be our last new one for a whole ten weeks! Other things we peruse this Tuesday: A UW doctor’s tale of tragedy n’ triumph; a new complication to the KeyArena rebuild; Boeing wants to “Blame Canada”.

9/14/17: MAYOR MAY NOT
Sep 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve got our second mayor of the year, will get a third, and may get a fourth in between. MISCmedia MAIL covers this, as well as why Seattle shouldn’t bend over backwards to appease Amazon; how design and power intersect; a “re-brand” for PCC; and an elementary school not getting a “Satan Club” after all.

8/28/17: WHITHER THE SPORK?
Aug 28th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Another week of MISCmedia MAIL commences with a relatively minor topic, the coming end of plastic tableware and straws at Seattle food/beverage joints. But then the serious stuff shows up, such as more local Resistance reactions; a fight back against a conservative activist’s endless lawsuits against state liberals; strange bedfellows in the new-arena battle; and the Showbiz Lawsuit of Science!
