May 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Cinerama, Living Computers Museum to stay closed as Vulcan drops ‘Arts + Entertainment’ division; City Council defers vote on sweep ban after 5-plus-hour meeting; 6,500 more Boeing layoffs; we still don’t know when we’ll get to ‘phase 2.’

May 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A local collage artist brings the present to the past; WA’s ‘patient zero’ probably wasn’t; Amazon holds its first virtual shareholder meeting; a maker of high-tech home-brew kits goes flat.

5/26/20: QUIET (REALLY QUIET) ON THE SET
May 25th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

How local indie film could come back after the shutdown; we’re not even close to the state’s official “phase 2” target; more UW Medicine staff furloughs; motels help the homeless better than mass shelters.

5/25/20: THE IN LOOK FOR SUMMER
May 24th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Portraits of mask-bearing women by a home-care worker; Memorial Day remembrances past and present; Sawant goes it alone at a ‘Tax Amazon’ hearing; a really big plan to preserve and expand Seattle’s arts scene.

5/19/20: MILD IN THE STREETS
May 18th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Drone video of a quiet downtown; the intersection of face masks and racial profiling; Sound Transit light rail will charge fares again; is a longtime Seattle artist-activist a ‘faithless elector’ or a political resistor?

5/18/20: THE FINAL EDIT
May 17th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering filmmaker Lynn Shelton; remembering Mount St. Helens; Convention Center expansion needs a whole lot of money; is an international criminal plot after your unemployment benefits?

5/15/20: WAS THE ICU2 TV SET THE ORIGINAL ZOOM CONFERENCE?
May 14th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Official J.P. Patches (and Gertrude!) face masks are now available; a day without a King County COVID death; ‘National Geographic’ admires our handling of the crisis; could Bezos become the world’s first trillionaire?

‘Salish geek’ art to revive the spirit of the Century 21 world’s fair; crisis calls are way up; Lime won’t bring back bike rentals unless it can also offer scooters; Petco calls pet grooming an ‘essential service’.

5/13/20: ‘A FINE PLACE, REASONABLY PRICED’

5/7/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 2
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

More amazing storefront murals; could a new Works Progress Admin. help save the arts?; is Seattle’s grim budget estimate not grim enough?; recalling the war against not just the Nazis but the ‘Nazi idea’.

5/6/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 1
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A few of the storefront murals bringing a little life to our streets; starting Phase 1 of the reopening while wondering when Phase 2 might start; another GOP suit against stay-home orders; giving a local street a more appropriate namesake without changing its name.
