5/7/18: PORTRAIT OF THE DRAGON AS A YOUNG MAN
May 6th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Bruce Lee’s Seattle days; calling Amazon’s bluff and other head-tax reactions; restaurant bills complaining about having to pay living wages.

4/16/18: THE LAST PURPLE SUIT
Apr 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

An un-gentrified downtown apparel shop suddenly shutters after 37 years; why Rhapsody didn’t get as big as Spotify; our regressive tax system in detail; a life lesson from Rev. Samuel McKinney.

4/12/18: COOKING UP A STORM
Apr 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Saving baking arts at South Seattle College; what’s wrong with closing sex-work websites; coastal oil drilling’s now less likely; protests at wannabe Amazon HQ2 cities.

3/19/18: TOTE THAT BARGE, ER, DRYDOCK
Mar 18th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A strange sight in Elliott Bay; should tech titans be split up?; a new angle to the 4Culture clash; solar panels at an ex-coal mine.

3/14/18: DOWN THE PIKE
Mar 13th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The Pike Place Market as a mixed-economy role model; student walkout preview; Metro stuck with not-fully ‘accessible’ minivans; what’s really keeping more women from tech careers?

3/12/18: GROWING, SHRINKING: IT’S WHAT’S IN STORE
Mar 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Northgate gets less mall-y while PCC gets more ritzy; Bitcoin ‘miners’ invade Eastern Wash.; Richard Sherman’s goodbye; Hanford’s ‘normalization of deviance.’

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.

1/12/18: LOVE OF LOAF
Jan 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend letter: The ‘Uncomfortable MLK;’ harsh truth about upward mobility; Boeing off-shoring plane design?; a life form that’s been here since the gold rush.

1/9/18: GENUFLECTION REFLECTION
Jan 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Seahawk makes the ‘New Yorker’ cover; another settles a bankruptcy; Amazon suppliers tread a thin line; a look just outside the billionaires’ compounds.

11/28/27: RACER REDUX
Nov 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your Tuesday news: a local landmark comes back from the dead (again); the city’s new homeless-grants plan cuts SHARE; Mayor Durkan takes charge with a personal PR blitz.

11/22/17: IF IT’S NOT POLITICS…
Nov 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your T-Day Eve perusal: ‘Other’ difficult holiday talk-topics; the local role in vinyl records’ comeback; searching for opioid-crisis solutions; plans for a Seattle AIDS memorial.

9/8/17: COMPANIES THAT LIKED ‘SEATTLE’ ALSO LIKED…
Sep 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Amazon wants to do for, or to, another North American city what it’s done for, or to, Seattle. That’s the top story in our big weekend e-missive. Other subjects include the resurfacing of some onetime local TV stars; Chris Hansen’s plan for KeyArena; and a reason to go to Kent (other than jury duty or junior hockey).

8/29/17: INTERSECTIONALITY ILLUSTRATED
Aug 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local artist has made a beautiful poster, abstractly illustrating some of Seattle’s wackiest intersections. In more substantial Tuesday news, we’ve got Hurricane Harvey responses; why Amazon can get away with lowering Whole Foods’ prices; challenges to the trans-military ban; and the local “celebrity CEO” who may try to save Uber.

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!

8/15/17: SAY THEIR NAMES, STILL
Aug 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

“Seattle High School Memorial Stadium” is named for the 800 names on its front wall, of locals who died in WWII. There’s a drive to make sure the names remain in any rebuilt stadium. We discuss that in our Tuesday letter, as well as the young man from our state found among the Virginia white-supremacist marchers; memories of the NW’s last total eclipse; a consumer review of one of the new bike-share systems; and Costco caught peddling mis-branded jewelry.
