1/17/18: SHE WON’T BACK DOWN
Jan 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: Deportation threat won’t silence a local Latinx activist; WA’s last GOP gov dies at 91; a ‘landmarked’ Capitol Hill mansion’s being razed anyway.

1/10/18: LET THEM EAT STOCK OPTIONS
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Today: A State Capitol protest against regressive state taxes; Inslee’s carbon plan; a break for DACA ‘Dreamers’; the ‘richest person in history.’

11/21/17: A HEARSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR
Nov 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Your Tuesday report mentions the local woman behind ‘Barbie’s Dream Hearse’; city budget details; a Memorial Stadium rebuild plan; a block to the latest threat to sanctuary cities; and the French media re-rediscovering Seattle.

11/10/17: GET THIS ‘PARTY’ STARTED
Nov 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL: Local Cold War nostalgia; a local CEO sued for assault; the city’s latest big upzone plan (still) omits most single-family zones; anti-encampment fence put up at Spokane Street.

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.

10/3/17: 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.

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?

9/15/17: 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).

7/27/17: GONE TO THE MOON
Jul 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Boeing-built lunar rovers are still on the moon; should we move to legally protect them from anyone who might show up to trash them? We also view local reactions to the trans-soldier ban; two new attacks against Evergreen State (one more absurd than the other); a venerable used-book palace going away; and the demise of a cartoon-voice legend.

7/19/17: DANCE LIKE THE WORLD NEEDS IT
Jul 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We start MISCmedia MAIL today with a talk on the need to dance, unite, and celebrate oneself. Also: Nick Hanauer’s warning to “my fellow plutocrats”; a (probable) deal for the ex-Public Safety block at last; why the West Point sewer plant really broke down; and Bill Gates’s misadventures in hoteliering (is that a word? Probably not).

7/10/17: THE BATTLE BEGINS (MAYBE)
Jul 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In Monday’s MISCmedia MAIL: Today will likely see the start of the legal skirmishes to either confirm or reject Seattle’s proposed municipal income tax. Also: Jay Inslee as a “demo singer” for the Dems’ campaign points; more doubts about the state budget deal; another anti-trans “bathroom bill” fails; and the Rep planning a grunge musical.

6/22/17: ‘WE’RE HAVIN’ A HEAT WAVE…’
Jun 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

With summer finally, officially, among us, the hot-hot-hotness is due to arrive. And MISCmedia MAIL discusses more fallout from the Charleena Lyles shooting; the anniversary of the first foreign attack on the US mainland in WWII (in our state); still no progress in the state-budget stalemate; and what it means to be “Seattle-ready.”

6/7/17: THE LAST REEL?
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL doesn’t know any more than you about the sudden closure of the classic Guild 45th and Seven Gables cinemas. We do know a little about another police-brutality settlement; the International District’s “upzone” moving forward; what white liberals don’t “get” about the whole Evergreen State College to-do; and our big, boistrous birthday party (tomorrow, Thursday 6/8/17, at the tony Two Bells!).

5/31/17: NOT SO ‘CRUDDY’
May 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL starts with a great honor for one of my fave cartoonist/novelist/playwrights. It goes on to mention the “dirty” aspect of cleaning up Lake Washington; big-big plans for the UW; the apparent end to one of our era’s most famous couples; and five years after the Cafe Racer slayings (so many senseless slayings ago).

5/26/17: DOWN THE PIKE
May 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big holiday-weekend MISCmedia MAIL: The Pike Place Market’s new part, or at least part of that new part, is now open; Folklife’s last hurrah?; the White House hates rail transit and old people getting jobs; Nike’s overseas labor policies are back in the news; and gazillions of weekend activity listings.
