May 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A local collage artist brings the present to the past; WA’s ‘patient zero’ probably wasn’t; Amazon holds its first virtual shareholder meeting; a maker of high-tech home-brew kits goes flat.

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.

5/25/20: THE IN LOOK FOR SUMMER
May 24th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Portraits of mask-bearing women by a home-care worker; Memorial Day remembrances past and present; Sawant goes it alone at a ‘Tax Amazon’ hearing; a really big plan to preserve and expand Seattle’s arts scene.

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?).

5/20/20: ROUNDING TOWARD HOME(S)
May 19th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Local coalition’s big plan to end homelessness in five years; when restaurants reopen, who’ll go?; a bad wildfire season’s predicted; how Kent’s really coping, beyond the Twitter ‘jokes’.

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?

5/18/20: THE FINAL EDIT
May 17th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering filmmaker Lynn Shelton; remembering Mount St. Helens; Convention Center expansion needs a whole lot of money; is an international criminal plot after your unemployment benefits?

5/15/20: WAS THE ICU2 TV SET THE ORIGINAL ZOOM CONFERENCE?
May 14th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Official J.P. Patches (and Gertrude!) face masks are now available; a day without a King County COVID death; ‘National Geographic’ admires our handling of the crisis; could Bezos become the world’s first trillionaire?

5/11/20: RE-BAR, DE-BARRED
May 10th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Legendary DJ/performance space won’t reopen (at its current spot); King County counts its 500th COVID death; more anti-quarantine protests, lawsuits; Pramila Jayapal wants a Paycheck Guarantee Act.

5/7/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 2
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

More amazing storefront murals; could a new Works Progress Admin. help save the arts?; is Seattle’s grim budget estimate not grim enough?; recalling the war against not just the Nazis but the ‘Nazi idea’.

5/6/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 1
May 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A few of the storefront murals bringing a little life to our streets; starting Phase 1 of the reopening while wondering when Phase 2 might start; another GOP suit against stay-home orders; giving a local street a more appropriate namesake without changing its name.

5/1/20: DRAWN, APART
May 1st, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Comix artist depicts local folks’ current fears/hopes; economic grimness continues; Amazon’s sales shoot up (as do its expenses; what will talk radio ranters do without a May Day march to rail against?

Public art comes to a front yard near you; the Seattle Art Fair’s canceled for this year; beware an “infodemic” of cheats and liars; a major local record store won’t reopen.

2/28/20: DEPRESSION EXPRESSION
Apr 28th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Tatiana Gill’s comix tales of medication (Rx and other); (some) outdoor recreation to return in WA; doing real work in online office ‘environments’; we’ve hit the COVID ‘plateau’ but that’s not enough.

4/27/20: POSITIVE (C-)ID
Apr 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Artists send love to the Chinatown-International District; the ‘New Yorker’ thinks we had a better early COVID response than NYC; Boeing jilts Embraer at the merger altar; ‘the Seattle that existed before March is gone forever’.
