MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/24/17: MAKING MERRY AS AN ACT OF DEFIANCE
Feb 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The big Carnival-celebratin’ places have faced horrible times, but always found some good times to let roll. So should we. Also in our biggest-yet e-missive: Rep. Reichert hides from his constituents; renters will get a voice at City Hall; divers keep searching for long-sunken ships; and the remains of Apollo 11 coming to town.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/21/17: AS YE SOW…
Feb 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s a post-Monday-holiday day but we’ve still got a full e-missive, with stuff about a local author’s dystopia novel rediscovered; the least-“Made in USA” plane Boeing’s ever made; employers who really didn’t like “A Day Without Immigrants”; and the Seattle rock roots of a late jazz legend.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/14/17: WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT
Feb 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In my approaching dotage, I approach at least a slightly less snarky attitude toward Valentine’s Day. And I today discuss the economic clout of “sanctuary cities;” a victory for family-leave advocates; a potential new anti-fossil-fuel initiative; and Mercer Islanders’ sense of transportation privilege.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/13/17: MAKING PRESIDENTS’ DAY MEAN SOMETHING
Feb 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We try to figure out how to mark an upcoming day for honoring the predecessors to someone who’s proven completely dishonorable. And, as well, we explore a still-extant fallout shelter; UW political scientists making a united stand; the sneaky details behind the state Republicans’ school-funding plan; and something called “gaze-assisted object recognition.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/10/17: IT’S SO APPEALING!
Feb 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

What’s it like to live in the unofficial capital of the Resistance? Today, great. Between the state attorney general and Nordstrom, we’ve got the DC goons on the proverbial ropes. Other subjects include St.Mark’s Cathedral getting “finished” at last; downtown car traffic not growing as much as it could have; an attempt to save a classic funeral building from the Grim Redeveloper; and the usual thousands of weekend activities.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/8/17: KEEPING UP THE FIGHT
Feb 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We couldn’t stop the Amway heiress from becoming Secretary of Education, but locals made strides and/or statements against the Attorney General nominee, Wells Fargo’s Dakota Access Pipeline stake, and (again) the immigration ban. We’ve also got stuff about the Tommy Bahama-branded travel trailer; the local Gold’s Gym franchisee going fully indie; and developer Martin Selig’s daughter making it big in Hollywood.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/2/17: A WORLD DISAPPEARED
Feb 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As a new exhibit about local Japanese-American life (before and during the WWII internments) shows, we’ve been down the path of ethnic demonizing before, with tragic results. We’ve also got the now-usual roundup of resistance news, plus a real police-reform bill at last; how the state Senate could get re-tied; and the death of a ceaseless advocate for urban trees and plants.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 120/17: (MORE) NEWS ON THE MARCH
Jan 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our Monday e-missive is, natch, mostly about the weekend’s “emergency marches” against the immigrant ban and the Sleaze Machine that devised it. But we also find space to remember a local TV legend and nationally renowned Scandahoovian-dialect comedy singer.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/25/17: A TIE FOR THE WIN?
Jan 24th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The first quasi-sorta-positive thing out of the new DC regime has happened. By poaching two WA State Senators, that body now has a temporary tie. We make further glances at instant pipeline protests; more looks back at the Womxn’s March; Seattle’s not-that-purely-progressive past; and one beloved bar surviving by kicking out another.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/24/17: A DIFFERENT KIND OF BUBBLE
Jan 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The first locally-invented “tsunami survival capsules” are ready. We’re also onto still more Womxn’s March reactions and post-march plans; a different approach to this year’s homeless count; the closure of a gourmet-chocolate chain’s flagship café; and the death of a sports-promotion legend.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/20/17: WELCOME TO OCCUPIED AMERICA
Jan 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Life During (domestic) Wartime begins here with some vital guidance on making an effective, long-term opposition to bigotry and brutality, and many protest/reaction event listings. Plus: A lawsuit against encampment “sweeps;” a chance to end GOP control of the state Senate; and whither the band name “Thunderpussy”?

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/19/17: THE DAY BEFORE
Jan 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

One day to rest up, make plans, and enjoy the calm before the GOPocalypse. So read up today about those weird restaurant-inspection icons; a possible municipal lawsuit against OxyContin’s makers; politicians who want to ban wind farms; and a UW Muslim student on the activist front lines.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/18/17: THE LAST LEGGINGS
Jan 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As American Apparel shuts down here and elsewhere, we look fashion-forward to discuss more attempts by GOP legislators to make the laws for (or rather, against) Seattle; a dispute among anti-inauguration marchers; diversifying Bellevue and its challenges; and a beloved local bar closes two years after it first said it would.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/16/17: TRUE FREEDOM
Jan 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local teen activist explains part of What Must Be Done this Martin Luther King Day. Additional glances today are paid at the still shrinking Eddie Bauer empire; lessons from our past about “how to deal with fascists;” a proposed “quiet zone” for orcas; and bike sharing’s death and non-resurrection.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/13/17: A SONG OF ICE
Jan 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Besides our big book announcement (see below), we’ve got word about the Snoqualmie River “ice circle”; local pols defending health care; an opioid near-death seen up close; the death of a transit advocate; and lots of MLK Weekend activities.
