Jan 2nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s first MISCmedia MAIL covers the Two Bells Tavern’s final moments; the death of Tim Eyman’s latest kill-transit drive; a drive to restore Indian Heritage High School’s funding; and Teresa Mosqueda’s and Nikki Oliver’s differing views on political progress.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/8/17: YES, WHITE WOMEN ARE WHITE
Mar 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

International Women’s Day, and the call for a “Day Without a Woman” strike, have caused disunity and charges of “white privilege.” I also turn my eye to the White House’s war against Planet Earth; anti-Sikh violence a century ago and now; the city “sweeping” the homeless from a site the city had originally encouraged; and an impasse over the “levy cliff.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/27/17: #OSCARSOINEPT
Feb 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Well, there went the chance for anybody to remember the “political” speeches at the award ceremony. We’ll still talk about situations in the off-screen world, including why “Indivisible” is nothing like the “Tea Party”; “rescuing” data on federal computers that might get wiped any day now; black history preserved; Kelsey Plum’s triumph; and a black community group wanting to take over a big development project.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/16/17: THE RADIO IS IN THE HANDS OF SUCH A LOT OF FOOLS…
Feb 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

There’s no secret to KIRO-FM’s current format. The once-respectable news/talk station has largely fallen to the “hate talk” formula, a slick and refined shtick that’s drawing ratings around the nation (at the expense of America itself). Also today: whole towns in central Washington in the dark; more reaction to the Daniel Ramirez Medina arrest; police action vs. hate crimes; and what a “cryptid” is and why we may honor one.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/3/17: CRIMES AGAINST CULTURE
Feb 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Grave robbers are stealing precious carvings from the Lummi Reservation’s cemetery. We’ve also got scads of resistance headlines and scads of weekend event listings. But the big news: Seattle snow! However brief, it’s a precious miracle and an omen for brighter times again.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/9/17: JAYAPAL’S FIRST STAND
Jan 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Pramila Jayapal did her best to derail the Electoral College vote’s certification after it was already too late, alas. But it’s never too late to join the Resistance. Or to read today’s e-missive about the next stages in police reform; how and why white liberals should learn to “talk about race;” some “dangerously pure” street drugs; and treating depression with a video game.
