10/7/19: BEING THE FUTURE
Oct 6th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Young activists’ ideas become an art exhibit; the local CEO inside the Ukraine affair; Boats Afloat Show floats away to Everett; Seattle’s biggest ‘soot polluter’ is a recycling plant.

9/25/19: IMPEACHY KEEN
Sep 24th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Rep. Pramila Jayapal on why impeachment’s time is now; the private ICE jail in Tacoma tries ‘rebranding’; more on how Boeing’s 737 MAX mess likely started from the top down; Microsoft’s original Redmond buildings have been razed.

8/27/19: BLOOD RELATIONS
Aug 26th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Photographer Lance Mercer’s stepkid’s research might help save his life; Tent City 3 heads to the ’burbs; Bob Ferguson sues against indefinite migrant-kid detention; how a sober guy with a full-time job has to live in an RV.

5/22/19: OF RIGHTS AND WRONGS
May 21st, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A gathering to fight the abortion bans; a local-music legend’s latest battle; another big DSHS neglect settlement; another big 737 MAX lawsuit.

3/8/19: RED LINES AND WHITE NEIGHBORHOODS
Mar 7th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A new exhibit reveals Seattle’s less than ‘inclusive’ past; GOP State Rep. Phil Fortunato’s latest crusade and/or publicity stunt; another GOP legislator claims vaccines are potentially more dangerous than measles.

6/11/18: THE REAL ‘FAMILY VALUES’
Jun 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Supporting the mothers of ICE-‘removed’ children; why there’s still no homelessness solution; why celeb suicides affect people so deeply.

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.

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.

9/6/17: ASHES TO ASHES
Sep 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The sky all day Tuesday was, among other colors a sickening shade of orange (how “of our time”). The other huge story today: Folk in all walks-O-life (even a couple of Republicans) bash the trashing of “Dreamers.” Plus, the UW wants to build employee housing.

8/24/17: A TIME OF THE SIGNS
Aug 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local artist’s putting up realistic-looking street signs, to gently remind folks of their worth. Today’s other subjects include a reminder of what real “national unity” will look like; stats on Amazon’s near-complete takeover of Seattle; a major Euro automaker potentially opening a US HQ here; and a lot of apartments on a really small lot.

8/22/17: THERE WENT THE SUN
Aug 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The temperature cooled significantly. The outdoor light looked like a movie “day for night” shot. And people glimpsed the realms beyond our own world. Now it’s back to the dog daze o’ summer, when MISCmedia MAIL mentions a call for a “centrist” political movement (as if we don’t already have one); a national media article claiming some Seattleites like to live in their cars (?); prison time for a local Ponzi-schemer; and a big trans convention coming to town.

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.

7/28/17: A BILLION HERE, A BILLION THERE…
Jul 28th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For a few hours Thursday, due to fluctuating stock prices, Jeff Bezos was briefly the richest person in the world. MISCmedia MAIL ponders what he, or we, could have done with just a piece of that loot, and also ponders the prospect of bullet trains in the NW; more legal actions against Mayor Murray and Sheriff Urquhart; the death of a terrific local photojournalist; and the “AstroTurf PR” dude cheerleading against higher minimum wages.

6/5/17: THIS AIN’T NO PORTLANDIA
Jun 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The alt-right rally scheduled for Portland before last week’s slayings took place, as did several counter-protests, as did arrests and seized weapons and pepper spray. Also in Monday’s MISCmedia MAIL: Anschutz doesn’t want to rebuild KeyArena after all; Dale Chihuly admits to emotional issues but denies cheating an associate; a legendary local bar will be reborn; and a proposed high-rise with a rooftop dome.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 120/17: (MORE) NEWS ON THE MARCH
Jan 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our Monday e-missive is, natch, mostly about the weekend’s “emergency marches” against the immigrant ban and the Sleaze Machine that devised it. But we also find space to remember a local TV legend and nationally renowned Scandahoovian-dialect comedy singer.
