4/23/18: IN ‘SPITE’ OF IT ALL
Apr 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Ballard ‘spite house’ lives!; deadly-force law gets un-amended; head tax proposal’s introduced; a better ‘role’ for a certain DC insider?

4/5/18: ONE ‘EPIC’ EVENT
Apr 4th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A big tribute to a local art master; Sinclair Broadcasting’s historic precedent; new Seattle Schools head; ‘congestion pricing’ for downtown driving?

3/6/18: AN ‘EXHAUST’-ING SIGHT
Mar 5th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Thousands of recalled VW diesel cars are parked at an ex-nuclear site; some Sherman Alexie accusers tell their stories; is there sexism in anti-racist groups?; is Ichiro coming back?; are flying cars finally almost here?

2/16/18: COMMUTERS IN THE SKY
Feb 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Flying cars (or something like them) at last?; did the state DOL help ICE prosecute Maru Mora-Villalpando?; stop pipelines with wine!

1/31/18: USING THEIR NOODLE
Jan 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Chinese-food maker overcomes automated ‘perfection’; Seattle’s in the electric-car charging biz; school bus drivers to strike; boos for Bill Nye for going to the State of the Union speech.

12/19/17: BLOOD ON THE TRACKS
Dec 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Thoughts on the big train wreck; Durkan’s newest affordable-housing plan; transit and bike shares are really popular here.

12/14/17: NEUTRAL SPIRITS
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: everyone loves net neutrality except (some) corporations and the politicians they own; simply “praising” black women’s not enough; Fisherman’s terminal gets bigger; light-rail expansion to speed (slightly) up.

11/27/17: OH, HENRY
Nov 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Starting your week off: A semi-psych Henry mural outside a pot shop can legally stay; big rain/winds are coming back; why gay-rights orgs shouldn’t settle for an all-white ‘rainbow.’

11/3/17: SLEEPING IN
Nov 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend news: ‘Sleep-in’ and ‘die-in’ actions for the homeless; how open-source software can be even more ‘bro’-heavy than corporate code; a private ferry to Renton?

10/30/17: SUNK TRANSIT
Oct 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another wacky week of news with more supposedly-clever ways to abandon bike-share vehicles; NFL protests get more “meta”; and letting building owners sell their “airspace.”

8/21/17: THERE GOES THE SUN
Aug 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today’s forecast: Sunny, then strangely not-sunny, then sunny again. Our attention today also wanders to a Republican who really dislikes the DC Republican regime; Aberdeen as even more down-n’-out than it was in Cobain’s time; a Sounders win that’s about as dramatic as they get; and the death of one of America’s great humanitarians (and also of Jerry Lewis).

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.

6/8/17: ON WITH THE SHOW, THIS IS IT!
Jun 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL today discusses the mayor’s big (albeit still tentative) arena deal; attempts to reach common ground with local Muslims and/or Republicans; non-techbro reasons for the housing crisis; and the Mariners’ comeback all the way to .500! But these are all minor stories compared to the big event of the day, our own spectacular b-day party for both the newsletter and for myself, 6:30 p.m. tonight at the tenacious Two Bells in bountiful Belltown.

5/30/17: AMERICA AT ITS WORST, AND ITS BEST
May 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Memorial Day weekend came close to home, as we remember two people who gave their lives defending America’s highest values—here in the Northwest, at the weekend’s start. Tuesday’s MISCmedia MAIL also has words on B.C.’s new (and much less oil-industry-friendly) government; another dead whale washed ashore; and an “aurora” in Seattle that’s not an old U.S. highway.

5/17/17: THE DEVIL YOU KNOW
May 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

“Pence would be worse,” the argument goes. We ponder that argument and its limits today at MISCmedia MAIL. Also: a disappearing piece of exurban “vernacular architecture;” a threat to the Hanford cleanup; the police-accountability plan and its discontents; and another Mariners bullpen collapse.
