3/23/18: NEWS ON THE MARCH
Mar 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The aware, activist teens behind March For Our Lives; ‘Portlandia’ RIP; the state of booze in the state; a possible precedent toward Net censorship; one affluent guy you’re glad you’re not.

Feb 20th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Office art gets artier at local corporate HQs; Jenny Durkan’s ‘State of the City’ speech avoids easy answers; an Ijeoma Oluo essay didn’t take down Al Franken (despite recent claims that it did).

2/13/18: (RICHARD) SHERMAN’S MARCH
Feb 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL entry: Fighting the net-neutrality repeal; money reasons behind the potential big hospital merger; blacks in tech forming their own networks; a message of peace at a time of turmoil.

12/14/17: NEUTRAL SPIRITS
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: everyone loves net neutrality except (some) corporations and the politicians they own; simply “praising” black women’s not enough; Fisherman’s terminal gets bigger; light-rail expansion to speed (slightly) up.

10/26/17: BOOSTER, SHOT

For Thursday, we present to you: Facebook’s “boost” feed fees bashed; opioid summit; forest-thinning plan, alt-right blogger kills own leftist father.

Sep 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We won’t have Rep. Dave Reichert to kick around any more; Washington’s one of 15 states preparing to sue over the DACA decision; and wildfires continue to destroy forest lands and choke up the skies. But let’s also talk today about something REALLY important: the new Seahawks “alternate” logo, and the fun online commenters are having with it.

8/3/17: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES
Aug 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

These here days of summer may or may not be lazy or crazy, but they sure are hazy. Nevertheless, we take some Visine so we can look at a lack of change in mayoral balloting; landmark designation for the 22-year-old KeyArena; a protest against Post Office job cuts; and a guy in a bear suit serving up $200-a-plate dinners.

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.

Thursday’s big and small topics include King County’s own country fair coming back from near death; an ex-Amazon exec predicting Costco’s doom; a recent “cyberstalking” suspect pleading “free speech;” Mexico inviting (some) “Dreamers” back; and landline-phone nostalgia.

5/2/17: SORRY, NO VIOLENCE (HERE)
May 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In MISCmedia MAIL today: Nope, no real “anarchist” violence this May Day (at least in Seattle), just some right-wingers acting all scary n’ stuff. Also: Remembering Mike Lowry; new life for a legendary gay bar; the city’s income tax scheme moves forward; and class in identifying “fake news.”

4/24/17: THE SEASON FOR THE REASON
Apr 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your Monday newsletter: The signs at the March for Science may have been funny and punny, but the cause they represented is deadly serious. Plus: what a city income-tax measure would mean (not much at first except work for lawyers); reaching out to GLBT immigrants; Sounders and Mariners both finally win on the road; and a great local-politics blog bids a fond adieu.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/25/17: A TIE FOR THE WIN?
Jan 24th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The first quasi-sorta-positive thing out of the new DC regime has happened. By poaching two WA State Senators, that body now has a temporary tie. We make further glances at instant pipeline protests; more looks back at the Womxn’s March; Seattle’s not-that-purely-progressive past; and one beloved bar surviving by kicking out another.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/17/16: APOCALYPSE NOT NOW
Oct 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

So you stocked up on canned goods, canceled your weekend plans, and all for just a few minutes of torrential downpour followed by the usual autumn sogginess. (Turns out the real storm here was at Friday’s homeless-bill hearing.) We additionally talk about Hope Solo’s possible next career move; a gay-rights garden planned for Broadway; a sidewalk with solar panels; how to make the police force more diverse; and an old, old town with a new name.
