9/29/17: THE DRAMA UNFOLDS
Sep 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL: Origami litter in Seattle parks explained; GeekGirlCon lives again; should Sodo be razed for offices?; can a methanol plant be eco-friendly?

9/28/17: THE RABBIT DIED
Sep 28th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On a potentially dreadfully hot Thursday, we discuss the simultaneous decline of Hugh Hefner and his industry; images of the old Seattle sleaze district; how earthquake-prepared we’re not; and the Museum of Flight gets big bucks to help girls in STEM studies.

9/27/17: BUTTERFLIES ARE…?
Sep 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In today’s e-missive: Odd, ominous origami strewn about town; sixth coal-port plan struck down; health care lives again (for now); paintings about the internment, made at the time; justice for johns?

9/26/17: BURNING RUBBER
Sep 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Tuesday in your MISCmedia MAIL: More NFL protest fallout; Temp-Mayor Tim Burgess’ budget; saving Seattle’s only ‘farm’; memories of the great Everett tire fire.

9/25/17: FIELD OF CONTENTION
Sep 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL has a whole new look today. Horray! As for the content itself, we discuss Seahawks players (and others) vs. hate and injustice; America’s “sorriest bus stop;” and Microsoft (heart)ing fossil fuels.

9/22/17: IT’S (NEAR) THE WATER
Sep 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our big weekend MISCmedia MAIL begins with new lives at last for the Olympia brewery (actually, for spaces adjacent to it). We go on to discuss how the city will pick its Temp-Councilmember; campaigners for an Eastside state-senate seat going all anti-Seattle; that local neo-Nazi who claims to be an innocent victim (yeah sure); and future changes to these e-missives.

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!”)

9/15/17: PARK(ING) IS SUCH SWEET SORROW
Sep 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

PARK(ing) Day is here again, and talk radio just complains about the  precious car spaces being taken over for temporary human use. Our big weekend newsletter also mentions black guys who like Jenny Durkan and a white guy who doesn’t; a teen convicted for “sexting” (but with complicating circumstances); goats becoming un-welcome in Olympic National Park; and the “priorities” for Bruce Harrell’s mayor-ship (which could end today).

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.

9/13/17: 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.

9/12/17: COUNTER COUTURE
Sep 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Another week of MISCmedia MAIL begins with Nordstrom bringing back the concept of the old Sears “catalog store.” We’ve also got still more cities that want to pimp themselves out for Amazon’s “HQ2”; Rep. Jayapal’s respectful answer to a wingnut C-SPAN caller; and a comix legend worrying that young people these days aren’t bored enough.

9/8/17: COMPANIES THAT LIKED ‘SEATTLE’ ALSO LIKED…
Sep 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Amazon wants to do for, or to, another North American city what it’s done for, or to, Seattle. That’s the top story in our big weekend e-missive. Other subjects include the resurfacing of some onetime local TV stars; Chris Hansen’s plan for KeyArena; and a reason to go to Kent (other than jury duty or junior hockey).
