7/12/18: TEMPLE, DOOMED
Jul 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Another grand U District church building’s about to go away; a beloved local worker’s taken by ICE agents; is Seattle real estate crash-bound, or is that just wishful thinking?

6/29/18: NOW HE HAS NO MOUTH, AND MUST…
Jun 28th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Harlan Ellison memory; Jayapal arrested at DC protest; the SPD ‘mass exodus’ that isn’t; Tacoma beats Seattle (at something not good).

6/26/18: RENT ASUNDER?
Jun 26th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Luxury apartment glut; immigrant mothers sue the feds; parking-space stickers going away; a parody/nadir in the bottled water craze.

5/21/18: LOSING YOUR ‘HEAD’?
May 20th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Anti-head-tax campaign begins with big funding; kayakers vs. pipeline redux; Susan Hutchison redux; Seattle’s not immune to hate-talk after all.

5/3/18: JOB BLACKMAIL DURING A BOOM
May 3rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Amazon threatens to slow local growth as if we should fear that; shouters take over a head-tax hearing; a Spokane teacher’s truth-to-power moment.

4/2/18: A STREETCAR NAMED EXPEDIENCY
Apr 1st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Mayor stalls (but doesn’t stop) a transit project; racism and (offline) ‘social networks’; Trans Visibility Day; tribes sue state to save salmon.

3/21/18: AS THE CIRCULAR SAW TURNS
Mar 20th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

U District hardware icon to leave; Sen. Cantwell wants Facebook to talk; local Catholics vs. ICE; making ‘tiny houses’ more like ‘tiny houses.’

2/20/18: ‘ROLLING’ ON THE WAVES
Feb 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

On a relatively slow news day we discuss an ocean-themed bowling alley (really!); a Muslim activist speaking to Japanese Americans; the Yakama tribe suing polluters; and a costly, no-electronics, teen ‘unboot camp.’

2/14/18: OF SPACES AND ‘SPICE’
Feb 13th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

‘Dune’ author gets his memorial park at last; Valentine’s thoughts on jaded cynicism (hint: it’s passé); one more ‘bad apple’ caught at ICE.

1/12/18: LOVE OF LOAF
Jan 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend letter: The ‘Uncomfortable MLK;’ harsh truth about upward mobility; Boeing off-shoring plane design?; a life form that’s been here since the gold rush.

1/11/18: AMA-BUCKS? AMA-ZLOTYS?
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Money magazine thinks Amazon could launch its own, well, money; judge OKs’ SPD reform progress; Bob Ferguson’s war on the ‘war on pot’.

7/6/17: THE KALAKALA LIVES! (SORT OF)
Jul 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Thursday’s MISCmedia MAIL starts with good news: Pieces of the ferry Kalakala were saved, and may come soon to an art installation near you. Also: cracks start appearing in the Legislature’s state-budget kludge; STD cases are on the rise; a tiki bar gets targeted by “cultural appropriation” charges; and one guy had a really dumb idea how to get the best view of the fireworks.

6/30/17: NOPE, STILL A SECRET
Jun 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’re still waiting to know all that’s in the last-nanosecond state budget deal. As for things we CAN tell you about this Fri. morn: Ed Murray’s still not running for re-election; original Cobain-made art coming to the Art Fair; more about the young man shot by officers for holding a pen; and a proud anniversary for a proud nation (alas, not ours).

6/16/17: THE BODY PAINT BODY POLITIC
Jun 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Friday’s MISCmedia MAIL ponders the Fremont Solstice Parade’s meaning in a year when just about every public act has political import. Also: a beloved fabric-arts store closes; the co-owner of Seattle’s coolest hardware store dies; alt-right dorks come to Evergreen; and a strange floating mega-balloon appears on the Tacoma waterfront.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/5/16: SNOW OR NO?
Dec 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Snow in Seattle is rarely forecast. Those forecasts, in turn, often don’t come true. What will happen this time? Further topics today include a victory (for now) at Standing Rock; a big “March Against Hate;” Airbnb working with the Urban League; another longtime local biz asking for your help; and Husky and Seahawk football blowout wins (albeit the latter with a price).
