4/20/18: KIND OF A DRAG
Apr 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle U allowed a student drag show but doesn’t like seeing it in the school paper; another student rally against shootings; boycotting a ‘bro-culture’ brewery.

10/13/18: THE NEEDLE, THE CELL, AND THE DAMAGE DONE
Apr 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Seeking compassion, not prison, for drug victims; Microsoft women still scarce; Oberto Sausage sold; Colin Kaepernick to the Seahawks?

3/16/18: I HAVE (THEY WANT) THE POWER!
Mar 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Bitcoin ‘miners’ want a LOT of our electricity; Maru Mora Villalpando’s day in court; iHeart Meida goes bust; what St. Pat’s really means.

2/19/18: TRAINS OF FUTURE, PASSED
Feb 18th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The rapid transit system we could’ve had; the White House’s war on NW public power; Bill Gates wants today’s tech titans not to act like him.

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.

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.

7/28/17: A BILLION HERE, A BILLION THERE…
Jul 28th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For a few hours Thursday, due to fluctuating stock prices, Jeff Bezos was briefly the richest person in the world. MISCmedia MAIL ponders what he, or we, could have done with just a piece of that loot, and also ponders the prospect of bullet trains in the NW; more legal actions against Mayor Murray and Sheriff Urquhart; the death of a terrific local photojournalist; and the “AstroTurf PR” dude cheerleading against higher minimum wages.

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 1/17/17: ‘MAKE AMERICA AGAIN’
Jan 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local Af-Am activist says we shouldn’t try to go back to some perceived past golden age of the U.S., but to create a more equitable country at last. We also view MLK and pro-school-funding rallies; Boeing’s (and American industry and labor’s) racist past; a strange Amazon request to the FCC; and Seattle having one-quarter of the world’s very-richest people.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/3/17: GOP-ACOLYPSE NOW?
Jan 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As a safety-net-hostile, ethics-hostile Congress prepares to convene, we continue to focus on local stuff, including another dead orca; state Sen. Baumgartner’s latest power-grab attempt; Amazon bashed for, well, just about everything; and fire trucks crashing into each other.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/14/16: UP ALL NIGHT?
Dec 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Some business interests want to turn downtown Seattle into “a 24-hour city.” People walking and shopping and being entertained and high-fiving one another in the streets when the only people who should normally be awake (aside from insomniacs like me) are hungry newborns and their parents. Can this be accomplished; and if so, would we even like it? We also ponder Bill Gates’s strange comparison between the next president and JFK; a temporary win for homeowners who don’t like back-yard cottages; Boeing management proving as indifferent to St. Louis as it is to Seattle; and why Sounders fans don’t watch a parade, they march in it.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/26/16: A NEW GAME?
Oct 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Chris Hansen now says he can build a basketball and/or hockey arena without tax $$. Other stuff today:  Google assembles its own e-tail program; more landlords kick out Section 8 tenants; a lawyer turned slam poet; and the Old Spaghetti Factory will serve its last Spumoni in December.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/19/16: WHITE HOUSE ‘GATES’?
Oct 18th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Bill AND Melinda Gates as potential Vice Presidents? Ridiculous. Among our other topics today: our pal Kelly Lyles and her art-van; HALA changes; a high school requesting “pledges” of attendance only from Af-Am students; a game company responding to allegations of “enabling” gambling; and an International District institution threatened.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/5/16: AUTUMNAL ODYSSEY
Oct 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We at #MISCmediaMAIL believe the Northwest autumn isn’t to be endured or survived but savored. We additionally sort out alleged conservative local-media bias; changes at SIFF; not-really-recyclable bags; ethnic emoticons; and a candle that supposedly smells like a “new Mac.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/17/15
Nov 16th, 2015 by Clark Humphrey

In your blustery-day MISCmedia MAIL: Two Wash. enviro-stars get honored; how Bill Gates could’ve made more money but didn’t; trees on a condo tower?; no City-owned broadband this year.
