11/20/17: HE’S A LEGEND AND A LANDMARK
Nov 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another week with a Scott McCaughey health scare; Amazon’s ‘gig economy’ drivers; a UW student/refugee threatened with deportation; and ‘naughty’ skywriting & its discontents.

11/16/17: THE LAST SPLASH PAGE
Nov 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Zanadu Comics’ final chapter; state’s school funding still not good enough; locals bash feds’ latest threat to sanctuary cities.

11/7/17: ON THE SPOT
Nov 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your pre-election letter: Fun-folky art saved in Eastern Wash.; Capitol women workers demand change; John Oliver vs. HQ2; a local name in the ‘Paradise Papers.’

11/6/17: FAKE FIR
Nov 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On yet another day of mourning, our local focus is on keeping the Cascadia flag away from racist co-option; details of April’s downtown police shooting; and ‘indoor farming’ coming to Kent.

10/31/17: SHOPPING MAGIC
Oct 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On this “spooktacular” day, we offer a ‘Harry Potter’ Halloween; a reform agreement with (some) police; a Microsoft discrimination suit that might grow; and the off-again Sprint/T-Mobile merger.

10/27/17: NIGHT OF THE HAUNTER
Oct 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend e-letter: Local-angle Halloween costume tips; out-O-state corporate $ behind 45th District attack ads; a half-million Amazonians now roam the earth; UW’s dental-school dean extracts himself.

10/4/17: ACTIONS & CONSEQUENCES
Oct 4th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our midweek missive, we discuss a video game where you can destroy society thru fake news; more claims against Sheriff John Urquhart; and more farmed fish coming near the Sound.

10/2/17: OUR FLAG WAS *NOT* THERE
Oct 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In Monday’s MISCmedia MAIL: What Michael Bennett DIDN’T do; ICE targets ‘sanctuary cities’; today’s Amazon compared to yesterday’s Sears; Seattle’s ‘Poetic Grid’ makes the PBS NewsHour.

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.”

9/13/17: 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.

9/11/17: E TU, HQ2?
Sep 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

While the nation’s opposite corner endures massive eco-carnage, our corner faces continuing pundit-blather about Amazon’s “co-equal headquarters” scheme. We additionally discuss visual proof of transit’s popularity; more about our corner’s own enviro-crisis (fire instead of water); the Seahawks’ opening meh; and remembering a not-so-sweet 16 years ago.

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).

9/1/17: FIELD OF DARK DREAMS
Aug 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As for-real football season commences, an area high school tries to “go goth.” We also observe a new purse for the female-identifying Seahawks fan; more complaints about the school-funding deal; how an Idaho town de-Nazified itself; and the pre-gentrified days of Bumbershoot.

8/29/17: INTERSECTIONALITY ILLUSTRATED
Aug 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local artist has made a beautiful poster, abstractly illustrating some of Seattle’s wackiest intersections. In more substantial Tuesday news, we’ve got Hurricane Harvey responses; why Amazon can get away with lowering Whole Foods’ prices; challenges to the trans-military ban; and the local “celebrity CEO” who may try to save Uber.

8/23/17: ‘VOICE,’ BOXED
Aug 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL has to say goodbye to the original “alt weekly,” being turned from a newspaper into merely a “brand.” We also discuss why Breitbart still has (some) ads; the accidental release of a ton of “fish farm” fish into public waters; a beautiful makeover to a pivotal local park; and how a school can be segregated without looking like it.
