RE: RE-SISTERS
Jan 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Last Friday, I suggested the Women’s March 2.0 might not be as humungous as it was last year.

I was wrong.

Another estimated 100,000 women, children, and men strode through downtown Seattle, reasserting their opposition to the hyper-reactionary DC regime and demanding a better future.

What’s next: continuing to resist and fight back, in measures large and small.
The biggest such moment will be at the midterm elections, a little more than nine months from now.

And you already know what miracles women can create within THAT timeframe.

9/13/17: THE (NO LONGER) WALKING ED
Sep 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

At 11 a.m., Ed Murray was about to hold a public announcement at KeyArena. A little more than two hours later, he sent word he was resigning. We’ve got glimpses of the whirlwind from assorted angles in today’s extra-long e-missive. We’ve also got Nordstrom’s latest plan to stay un-acquired; Durkan and Moon’s very different housing-crisis solutions; and potential new ways to make a border run.
