7/7/20: A SIGN OF THE TIMES, BEFORE ITS TIME
Jul 6th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Prescient Shepard Fairey mural on a Seattle building; City Council passes big-employer payroll tax; WA has 2,000 new COVID cases in four days; KingCo sheriff’s deputy on leave after dead-protester ‘jokes’ appear online.

6/29/20: PRANKING THE CRANKS
Jun 28th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Sacha Baron Cohen takes over Olympia militia rally; CHOP stays but shrinks; how the 6/1 Capitol Hill march ‘went from peaceful to violent in 60 seconds;’ could an NBA team be available to ‘poach’ (but should we do so)?

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?

5/28/20: VULCAN DEATH GRIP
May 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Cinerama, Living Computers Museum to stay closed as Vulcan drops ‘Arts + Entertainment’ division; City Council defers vote on sweep ban after 5-plus-hour meeting; 6,500 more Boeing layoffs; we still don’t know when we’ll get to ‘phase 2.’

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.

5/13/20: ‘A FINE PLACE, REASONABLY PRICED’
May 13th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

‘Twin Peaks’ diner’s new caretakers; a dance director says we should preserve artists, not just arts institutions; there’s a backlash to the state’s ‘contact tracing’ program before it starts.

5/12/20: ART OF THE MATTER
May 11th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Posters to inspire and instruct in this moment; a closed-but-timely museum show; the latest excuse for predicting emptied-out cities; King County wants to see a face mask on you.

5/8/20: THE WRITING/PAINTING ON THE WALL, PART 3
May 8th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Still more on storefront murals and their creators; City Council won’t vote on ‘Amazon tax’ for a good while; Soundgarden members sue Vicky Cornell over benefit-concert money; a brief Mother’s Day message.

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.

4/15/20: ‘MISSING’ PIECES
Apr 14th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

T-shirts to remember what’s not in your life; we’re apparently making great progress but can’t let up; Amazon fires workers who dissed its warehouse safety practices; Matt Shea claims the pandemic’s just a sham Marxist plot.

10/14/20: LISTEN TO YOUR MAMAS
Apr 13th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

An anonymous street artist’s words from role-model women; a three-state pact (we’re by far the hardest-hit) will coordinate COVID responses; Inslee’s early releases may not make prisoners safer; a legal settlement ends the ‘Uber union’ push for now.

3/31/20: STILLED, YET MOVING
Mar 30th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Ghostly beauty from a stalled Seattle Opera production; state and county COVID numbers show at least a little progress; Whole Foods workers stage a ‘sick out;’ democracy vouchers survive one last challenge.

3/19/20: LOSING A LION
Mar 19th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

COVID takes a major figure in local science and political thought; unearthing the crisis’s confusing early days at Life Care Center; a year without SIFF (sniff); a dance fest, imagining a better future for humanity, may or may not have a future itself.

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.

3/11/20: GETTIN’ MIGHTY UN-CROWDED
Mar 11th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

The state may ban all 250-or-more local public gatherings; there’s no WA presidential primary winner yet; Boeing workers split on latest contract offer; at least it’s a great time to take a quiet urban bike ride.
