2/15/18: YOUR COLD, COLD HEART
Feb 14th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

An icy valentine; UN human-rights watchers speak for Maru Mora-Villalpando; a legacy gay ‘steam room’ club’s for sale (again); the cost of faulty computer systems.

1/30/18: THE DOMES-DAY BOOK
Jan 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Amazon Spheres open on a rainforest-esque day; T-Mobile vows to go all “renewable”; oil-by-train port trashed; whatever happened to hemp?

RE: RE-SISTERS
Jan 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Last Friday, I suggested the Women’s March 2.0 might not be as humungous as it was last year.

I was wrong.

Another estimated 100,000 women, children, and men strode through downtown Seattle, reasserting their opposition to the hyper-reactionary DC regime and demanding a better future.

What’s next: continuing to resist and fight back, in measures large and small.
The biggest such moment will be at the midterm elections, a little more than nine months from now.

And you already know what miracles women can create within THAT timeframe.

12/29/17: WHITE WINTER ‘HYMN’-NAL
Dec 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s final MISCmedia MAIL explores a city getting ever younger; an addition to the Charleena Lyles lawsuit; the end of Seattle’s crooked-est alley; and Sherman Alexie exhorting against hate.

12/18/17: THE CLAUS THAT REFRESHES
Dec 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our pre-Xmas week begins with the Santa Con bar crawl; why you should admire the Seahawks even after that last game; a fish farm losing its lease; and how Pierce Co. prosecutor Mark Lindquist could be re-elected, disbarred, or both.

12/8/17: THE PUCK STARTS HERE?
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: The campaign for a Seattle NHL team commences; the real cost of virtual currency; non-progress in hotel-worker safety; another major Seattle institution approaches its date of death.

12/7/17: ALONG COMES MARY(S)
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Sung and unsung heroines of history; local sports legend sued for harassment; original 13 Coins’ last day; new Viaduct demolition schedule.

12/5/17: TRUCE IN THE ARENA OF BATTLE?
Dec 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In a big local news day, Coliseum 3.0 plan OK’d; police chief and City Light CEO quit; parents address the ‘PTA gap’ between local schools; Sounders fans don’t like (unofficial) Sounders beer.

11/22/17: IF IT’S NOT POLITICS…
Nov 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your T-Day Eve perusal: ‘Other’ difficult holiday talk-topics; the local role in vinyl records’ comeback; searching for opioid-crisis solutions; plans for a Seattle AIDS memorial.

11/11/17: THEIR CUP RUNNETH OVER
Oct 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: Starbucks’ non-recyclable packaging protested by ‘Cup Monster’; cancer cure in 8 years?; UW Republicans’ fake “Antifa” posters; it’s larch-foliage season!

9/20/17: IT’S BIG, BAD, AND BACK
Sep 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our midweek missive: Republicans just won’t stop trying to kill affordable health care (and thus several million Americans); a local social-justice activist vs. useless “purity” obsessions; tentative victories in eco-lawsuits; the end of the CD’s indie supermarket; and helping the homeless feel “at home,” if just for a moment.

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.

8/17/17: DOWN THE PIKE
Aug 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Let us recall another Seattle progressive triumph, in an age of another not-all-there Republican president. It’s the late John Stamets’ 1987 pix of the restored Pike Place Market, now on display again. Among our other topics this day: wildfires rage in Grant County; concrete-truck drivers go on strike; a walking trail’s set to reopen; and more local folk have more reaction to the ongoing sociopolitical meltdown.

8/15/17: SAY THEIR NAMES, STILL
Aug 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

“Seattle High School Memorial Stadium” is named for the 800 names on its front wall, of locals who died in WWII. There’s a drive to make sure the names remain in any rebuilt stadium. We discuss that in our Tuesday letter, as well as the young man from our state found among the Virginia white-supremacist marchers; memories of the NW’s last total eclipse; a consumer review of one of the new bike-share systems; and Costco caught peddling mis-branded jewelry.

7/12/17: CRANING AND STRAINING
Jul 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Your midweek missive notes how our allegedly pinko-socialist state has the top “environment for business,” and how that’s partly due to our regressive tax system. Plus: more city-sales-tax fallout; airport robots (not as pilots, yet); stopping tech-sexism from the boardroom on down; and a certain Mariners player who made a certain big play at a certain big game.
