1/11/18: AMA-BUCKS? AMA-ZLOTYS?
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Money magazine thinks Amazon could launch its own, well, money; judge OKs’ SPD reform progress; Bob Ferguson’s war on the ‘war on pot’.

11/7/17: ON THE SPOT
Nov 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your pre-election letter: Fun-folky art saved in Eastern Wash.; Capitol women workers demand change; John Oliver vs. HQ2; a local name in the ‘Paradise Papers.’

11/6/17: FAKE FIR
Nov 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On yet another day of mourning, our local focus is on keeping the Cascadia flag away from racist co-option; details of April’s downtown police shooting; and ‘indoor farming’ coming to Kent.

10/27/17: NIGHT OF THE HAUNTER
Oct 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend e-letter: Local-angle Halloween costume tips; out-O-state corporate $ behind 45th District attack ads; a half-million Amazonians now roam the earth; UW’s dental-school dean extracts himself.

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.

9/21/17: NOT A DAY TO CELEBRATE
Sep 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The company formerly known as Madison Park Greetings won’t issue more of its hip/cute greeting cards, now that its out-of-state buyer suddenly shut the whole operation down. In further reading today: Michael Bennett’s fan base; love for the rainy season’s start; a Swedish left-activist infiltrates a Seattle “alt-right” meeting; and a local online radio station “gets real.”

9/20/17: IT’S BIG, BAD, AND BACK
Sep 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our midweek missive: Republicans just won’t stop trying to kill affordable health care (and thus several million Americans); a local social-justice activist vs. useless “purity” obsessions; tentative victories in eco-lawsuits; the end of the CD’s indie supermarket; and helping the homeless feel “at home,” if just for a moment.

9/19/17: TODAY’S MAYOR DU JOUR
Sep 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our third mayor in a week will be our last new one for a whole ten weeks! Other things we peruse this Tuesday: A UW doctor’s tale of tragedy n’ triumph; a new complication to the KeyArena rebuild; Boeing wants to “Blame Canada”.

9/18/17: CANNERY ‘ROW’
Sep 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Salmon Homecoming Celebration had its 25th anniversary this past weekend. We glance a brief peek at that today, and also at the “Lady Jane” of Seattle mayors; big money for a fired Swedish physician; battles for two cities’ waterfronts’ futures; and the welcome return of rain. (“Eureka! The crops are saved!”)

9/14/17: MAYOR MAY NOT
Sep 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve got our second mayor of the year, will get a third, and may get a fourth in between. MISCmedia MAIL covers this, as well as why Seattle shouldn’t bend over backwards to appease Amazon; how design and power intersect; a “re-brand” for PCC; and an elementary school not getting a “Satan Club” after all.

9/5/17: A DIFFERENT KIND OF ROCKY ROAD
Sep 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A dog-daze-ish holiday weekend is done and MISCmedia MAIL’s back, with: a “decorative” way to make a stretch of city concrete un-campable; fires threatening the Portland exurbs and the “Northern Exposure” locations; the Puyallup Fair remembering when its grounds were used to detain WWII internees; Bob Ferguson vowing to protect our state’s DACA “Dreamers;” and the new Twin Peaks ending as incompletely as the old one did.

8/31/17: KINGDOME NOSTALGIA
Aug 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

One of the principal engineers behind the now-razed domed stadium passed away, having outlived his creation by 17 years. Our further Thursday topics: tribal rights to privately-held art works; a WSU prof decrying neo-Nazi images on campus; a fired cop’s legal settlement; and whether Amazon should spin off its most profitable asset (in order to keep it profitable).

8/30/17: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR…
Aug 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

I’m not complaining about a little haze in the air, compared to three to four feet of rain elsewhere. It just makes breathing a little tough for some of us. Other subjects this day: Figuring out the finances of Jenny Durkan’s free-tuition plan; obscene price gouging in Texas (and one free-marketeer who likes it); a union official who embezzled cash and tried to cover it up by disbanding the union; and a realty exec insists we’re not in a housing bubble, no way, don’t even think about it.

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!

8/17/17: DOWN THE PIKE
Aug 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Let us recall another Seattle progressive triumph, in an age of another not-all-there Republican president. It’s the late John Stamets’ 1987 pix of the restored Pike Place Market, now on display again. Among our other topics this day: wildfires rage in Grant County; concrete-truck drivers go on strike; a walking trail’s set to reopen; and more local folk have more reaction to the ongoing sociopolitical meltdown.
