5/23/19: IT’S A GAS (OR A LIQUID)!
May 22nd, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Is liquified natural gas a step toward cleaner energy or just more of the same?; Amazon shareholder proposals fall; Inslee’s first big veto of 2019; how the alt-Right seeks an ‘insider’ presence in Seattle.

5/3/19: AS THE CIRCULAR SAW TURNS
May 3rd, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Hardwick’s Swap Shop to close (really this time); crane victim’s family to sue; homeless numbers drop (maybe); the boats that evoke a pre-techie Seattle.

3/25/19: GENE GENE, THE COMPUTING MACHINE
Mar 24th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Designing computers with DNA storage; the Huskies’ NCAA run ends; the limits of software ‘fixes’ to tech products; reports of Seattle’s death are greatly exaggerated.

1/22/19: KING AND I
Jan 21st, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Speakers and marchers call to continue MLK’s fight; orcas aren’t ‘in the pink’; Seattle’s long-threatened ‘Carmageddon’ still isn’t here; Boeing’s new quality-control plan means fewer human inspectors.

12/31/18: A SQUARE HOLE, STILL UN-PEGGED
Dec 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The Public Safety Building block will remain a hole in the ground for now; various year-end thoughts about the city, state, and nation; should/could public transit be free?

11/1/18: A BEVY OF BEZOSES
Oct 31st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Protesting the Big A’s ties to ICE; the homeless crisis sparks violent incidents; a Yakama tribal leader’s not allowed at the US Supreme Court; will HQ2 end the local housing mega-boom?

10/9/18: ICE IS NICE
Oct 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Wannabe Seattle NHL team owners show off their planned practice rink complex; ‘Lid I-5’ folks show show off their proposals to ‘reclaim’ downtown lands; Susan Hutchison shows she’s a dittohead.

10/4/18: BASCULE IN THE GLORY
Oct 3rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Ballard’s beautiful, doomed railway bridge; more Amazon pay-raise fallout; county to change deadly-force inquests; are flying cars on the way at last?

9/5/18: BREAKFAST OF 12s
Sep 4th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Russell Wilson gets US sports’ highest honor; local theater company tackles ableism; the Storm gets back to the WNBA finals; is it Seattle’s best or worst of times (or both)?

8/31/18: FIRST THERE IS A TRANS-MOUNTAIN, THEN…
Aug 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Court bans Canada pipeline plan over orcas; teachers’ strike closer; will voters decide Safeco Field cash?; dreams of a post-corporate Bumbershoot.

8/21/18: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR…
Aug 20th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve again got the most noxious air in the world; King County settles teen solitary-confinement lawsuit; Seattle’s mega-growth may finally be slowing; did Metro order buses that can’t go up our steep hills?

8/14/18: THEY WENT AND DONE IT!
Aug 13th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The Showbox is saved! (for now, pending possible litigation); more Sea-Tac hijack fallout; Carmen Best confirmed as police chief; an update on my next book.

4/6/18: ANY REAL VIRTUE?
Apr 5th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Virtual reality’s next wowie/scary advance; a local arts mag’s new chapter; why the state Supreme Court backs second chances; could coal exports really be eco-friendly?

8/22/17: THERE WENT THE SUN
Aug 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The temperature cooled significantly. The outdoor light looked like a movie “day for night” shot. And people glimpsed the realms beyond our own world. Now it’s back to the dog daze o’ summer, when MISCmedia MAIL mentions a call for a “centrist” political movement (as if we don’t already have one); a national media article claiming some Seattleites like to live in their cars (?); prison time for a local Ponzi-schemer; and a big trans convention coming to town.

7/31/17: OF PRIMARY CONCERN
Jul 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Apparently very few Seattle voters have sent in their primary-election ballots. If any of you are among those, get to it, darn it! We also mention an attempt to trash the Northwest’s public-power heritage; the ever-hotter Eastside state-senate race; the vanishing sword ferns; and “Why I Don’t Hate Seafair” part XXVII.
