Meet one of the Black photographers of Black Lives Matter; Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda proposes a ‘payroll tax lite’; CHOP protest site gets a little more official; there’s no Comic-Con or PAX this year.

6/9/20: SPEAKING THROUGH THE MASKS, AND THE TEARS
Jun 9th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Voices from the protests; Pine St. police barricades removed and East Precinct partly cleared out; should one of Seattle’s biggest shelters stay closed?; what does ‘Defund the Police’ really mean?

6/8/20: THANKS VERMILLION
Jun 8th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

On the fifth birthday of MISCmedia MAIL (and the 25th birthday of MISCmedia online, and the 63rd birthday of me): The gallery-bar at the heart of help for the protesters; more over-reaction at the Capitol Hill barricades; Sawant, others want Durkan out and/or SPD budget slashed; state Employment Security Dept. sued.

6/5/20: BUMBERSHOOT 2020
Jun 4th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Umbrellas as the next big activism icon; protests continue without (much) over-reaction; Staten Island warehouse workers sue Amazon; the Seattle ‘progressive’ mindset as ‘American exceptionalism squared.’

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.

5/21/20: NO-SEE-FAIR
May 20th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Seafair’s major events axed for this year; record-high state unemployment rate; Portland OKs ‘tax the rich’ measure; what Washington’s big counties need to show before further reopening (and could nursing-home infection rates hold them back?).

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?

3/24/20: THIS IS THE WAY WE…
Mar 24th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Ellen Forney’s hand-washing tutorial; Inslee’s ‘stay at home’ order and its exceptions; you can now apply to be tested (space permitting); the main West Seattle Bridge is fully closed while the ‘low bridge’ is restricted.

3/13/20: ‘DISTANCE’ RUNNING
Mar 12th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Owner of a now-shut eatery wants more from local officials than just ‘social distancing’ mandates; lots more closures & cancellations; Legislature’s last moves to shore up transportation budget; what to do instead of shaking hands.

3/4/20: COVID CORNER
Mar 4th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

More virus updates & reactions (I know); a mystery initiative campaign’s mystery donor; fishers are cute, carnivorous, and back in WA; can the city save small businesses (without giving ’em money)?

2/17/20: DECLARATION OF INDIPINOS
Feb 16th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Descendants of indigenous and Filipino berry pickers remember; Catholic high school claims two gay teachers ‘voluntarily’ quit (supporters say otherwise); virus panic hurts local businesses; more copper-wire thefts.

Family ties and the new Seattle Asian Art Museum; free health clinic returns this weekend; a diluted winter-eviction ban passes the City Council; a longtime Madison Park bar is suddenly closed.

1/2/20: BOOMLESS IN SEATTLE
Jan 1st, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

The year starts sans fireworks; an Olympia legal victory for Seattle’s MHA plan; Amazon delivery contractors’ high-pressure existence; how to make lower Third Avenue safer for all.

12/31/19: FAREWELL TO THE TROUBLESOME TEENS
Dec 30th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

The local decade in review, for better and for worse; Microsoft blames a data breach on N. Koreans; more robots just make life worse for Amazon warehouse workers; high winds could cancel our NYE fireworks.

12/26/19: THE MOST AFFLUENT ‘FOOD DESERT’ IN TOWN
Dec 25th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

WSDOT finally gets its wish to raze the Montlake Blvd. Market; Lime Bikes to go away (at least for now); more damaging 737 MAX documents show up; why 12/26 should be as revered as 12/25.
