Jun 4th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Mayor Durkan and Police Chief Best stop curfews, promise to listen to protesters; city won’t seek to end federal police oversight; a black Tacoma man was fatally choked by police in March; King County seeks a modified “modified phase 1.’

6/1/20: OUT IN THE STREETS
Jun 1st, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Serious talk about facing systemic racism and violent police; plus the looting and such; plus the COVID news (no ‘phase 2’ for King County yet).

5/25/20: THE IN LOOK FOR SUMMER
May 24th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Portraits of mask-bearing women by a home-care worker; Memorial Day remembrances past and present; Sawant goes it alone at a ‘Tax Amazon’ hearing; a really big plan to preserve and expand Seattle’s arts scene.

5/21/20: NO-SEE-FAIR
May 20th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Seafair’s major events axed for this year; record-high state unemployment rate; Portland OKs ‘tax the rich’ measure; what Washington’s big counties need to show before further reopening (and could nursing-home infection rates hold them back?).

5/19/20: MILD IN THE STREETS
May 18th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Drone video of a quiet downtown; the intersection of face masks and racial profiling; Sound Transit light rail will charge fares again; is a longtime Seattle artist-activist a ‘faithless elector’ or a political resistor?

5/18/20: THE FINAL EDIT
May 17th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering filmmaker Lynn Shelton; remembering Mount St. Helens; Convention Center expansion needs a whole lot of money; is an international criminal plot after your unemployment benefits?

5/15/20: WAS THE ICU2 TV SET THE ORIGINAL ZOOM CONFERENCE?
May 14th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Official J.P. Patches (and Gertrude!) face masks are now available; a day without a King County COVID death; ‘National Geographic’ admires our handling of the crisis; could Bezos become the world’s first trillionaire?

5/14/20: ALL YESTERDAY’S TOMORROWS
May 13th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

‘Salish geek’ art to revive the spirit of the Century 21 world’s fair; crisis calls are way up; Lime won’t bring back bike rentals unless it can also offer scooters; Petco calls pet grooming an ‘essential service’.

5/13/20: ‘A FINE PLACE, REASONABLY PRICED’
May 13th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

‘Twin Peaks’ diner’s new caretakers; a dance director says we should preserve artists, not just arts institutions; there’s a backlash to the state’s ‘contact tracing’ program before it starts.

5/12/20: ART OF THE MATTER
May 11th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Posters to inspire and instruct in this moment; a closed-but-timely museum show; the latest excuse for predicting emptied-out cities; King County wants to see a face mask on you.

5/7/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 2
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

More amazing storefront murals; could a new Works Progress Admin. help save the arts?; is Seattle’s grim budget estimate not grim enough?; recalling the war against not just the Nazis but the ‘Nazi idea’.

5/6/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 1
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A few of the storefront murals bringing a little life to our streets; starting Phase 1 of the reopening while wondering when Phase 2 might start; another GOP suit against stay-home orders; giving a local street a more appropriate namesake without changing its name.

5/4/20: LIKE CLOCKWORK
May 3rd, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A local artisan repairs tiny intricate devices; getting ‘phased’ by Inslee’s new state guidelines; some of the angriest anti-quarantine trolls come from some of the worst-stricken counties; the lessons of the ‘Vietnam era’ as seen by Vietnamese people.

5/1/20: DRAWN, APART
May 1st, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Comix artist depicts local folks’ current fears/hopes; economic grimness continues; Amazon’s sales shoot up (as do its expenses; what will talk radio ranters do without a May Day march to rail against?

2/28/20: DEPRESSION EXPRESSION
Apr 28th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Tatiana Gill’s comix tales of medication (Rx and other); (some) outdoor recreation to return in WA; doing real work in online office ‘environments’; we’ve hit the COVID ‘plateau’ but that’s not enough.
