1/8/17: I HAVE THE (LOW) POWER!
Jan 7th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our first Monday missive in three weeks: Seattle DIY radio makes the NYT; the EPA re-hires State Sen. Doug Ericksen; MS fights a gender-discrimination suit; and Rattlesnake Ridge gets scarier.

12/29/17: WHITE WINTER ‘HYMN’-NAL
Dec 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s final MISCmedia MAIL explores a city getting ever younger; an addition to the Charleena Lyles lawsuit; the end of Seattle’s crooked-est alley; and Sherman Alexie exhorting against hate.

12/26/17: THE SEASON FOR THE REASON
Dec 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Boxing Day edification: Further thoughts and sights from a rare Seattle White Christmas; a derailment survivor’s tale; Travel Ban 3.0 partly blocked.

11/16/17: THE LAST SPLASH PAGE
Nov 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Zanadu Comics’ final chapter; state’s school funding still not good enough; locals bash feds’ latest threat to sanctuary cities.

11/1/17: THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS
Nov 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We start a new month, and with it one year to save America from its ‘saviors’. Other topics today: making local history less white; Olympia’s ‘old boys’ club’ and its discontents; big kudos for the local lit scene.

10/16/17: DISSING DEVOS
Oct 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another week of MISCmedia MAIL looking at people protesting a defamer of public education; Portland cops vs duct-taped protesters; and the Sounders doing what UW and WSU football couldn’t.

10/6/17: THE LAST RIDE DOWN
Oct 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend MISCmedia MAIL: Smith Tower goes automated; three-teen murder tragedy; local alt-right ‘mocking’ victim; did City Attorney Pete Holmes go too far?

10/3/17: TO LIVE LIKE A REFUGEE
Oct 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On this day of sorrows, we discuss a VR ‘experience’ with a message; deadly street pills; and whether this latest sick tragedy will FINALLY lead to action.

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.

8/29/17: 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!

8/21/17: THERE GOES THE SUN
Aug 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today’s forecast: Sunny, then strangely not-sunny, then sunny again. Our attention today also wanders to a Republican who really dislikes the DC Republican regime; Aberdeen as even more down-n’-out than it was in Cobain’s time; a Sounders win that’s about as dramatic as they get; and the death of one of America’s great humanitarians (and also of Jerry Lewis).

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.

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.

8/8/18: MAJORITY REPORT
Aug 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We ARE the political majority, those of us who oppose the brutal/reactionary DC regime—even if we don’t all belong to the same demographic “tribe,” even if we disagree on most everything else. Meanwhile back in local stuff, we view a happy ending to the saga of the ZAPP zine collection; a (sadly predictable) twist in the GeekGirlCon dustup; Nikkita Oliver’s continuing last stand; and America discovering Seattle’s most joyous TV personality.
