THEY WERE (AND ARE) HERE
Jul 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A new app shows your place’s indigenous past; a few Republicans finally break with White House; asylum seekers talk suicide; Bezos’ mega-wealth just keeps a-growin’.

5/16/18: ‘HEAD’ HUNTING
May 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Head-tax haters keep hating; Robinson Cano caught ‘using’; Cosmic Crisp apple PR blitz just beginning; what progressives can say they’re for.

5/11/18: POULTRY SLAM
May 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

‘Rubber Chicken Museum’ opens; Mayor Durkan wants to slash head-tax proposal; King County sues global oil giants; thoughts about motherhood and chaos.

4/17/18: FROM 10 WATTS TO 10 MILL
Apr 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

KEXP’s massive donation; more Starbucks Philly fallout; Seattle’s best public crying spots; are Sprint and T-Mobile like old sitcom characters?

4/4/18: THE LAST SPUDD
Apr 3rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A local comedy legend passes; the county exec’s recorded speech; UW psych unit threatened; a possible motive for Michael Bennett’s accuser.

3/22/18: HOW SUB WAS MY STATION?
Mar 21st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Another ‘brutalist’ edifice to be fought over; Bellevue mosque burns again; bike-share vandals get scarier; can the private sector solve homelessness? (probably not).

1/16/18: KING’S SUBJECTS
Jan 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Calls to action at local MLK march/rally; record warm local temps; pesticides vs. orcas; tree poachers nabbed.

11/9/17: GOODNIGHT, MOON

Jenny Durkan’s officially 2017 Seattle mayor #4; the state Senate ‘flips’; coastal seabirds are dying off; UW will inspect Nike contractors’ plants; teens in one OR town are officially forbidden to have sex.

10/27/17: NIGHT OF THE HAUNTER
Oct 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend e-letter: Local-angle Halloween costume tips; out-O-state corporate $ behind 45th District attack ads; a half-million Amazonians now roam the earth; UW’s dental-school dean extracts himself.

9/19/17: TODAY’S MAYOR DU JOUR
Sep 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our third mayor in a week will be our last new one for a whole ten weeks! Other things we peruse this Tuesday: A UW doctor’s tale of tragedy n’ triumph; a new complication to the KeyArena rebuild; Boeing wants to “Blame Canada”.

8/7/17: STATE OF THE ART (OF THE STATE)
Aug 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle’s big, annual arts-travaganzas have come and gone, with subjects of identity and resistance scattered throughout. We touch upon that in Monday’s missive, as well as the sad decline of the hydros; alleged “shaming” harassment at an officially “inclusive” fandom convention; a phony Starbucks “meme” graphic; and how much Nikkita Oliver may have already changed local politics.

6/23/17: PRIDE VS. PREJUDICE
Jun 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Pride Parade and rally have a different mission this year, as you probably expect. Your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL briefly mentions this, and also touches on still more Charleena Lyles fallout; local reactions to the deliberate disaster that is the health-care repeal plan; the men from our state who helped the CIA craft its torture techniques; and who a Seattle mini-park near a “dump” should be named after (one guess).

6/7/17: THE LAST REEL?
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL doesn’t know any more than you about the sudden closure of the classic Guild 45th and Seven Gables cinemas. We do know a little about another police-brutality settlement; the International District’s “upzone” moving forward; what white liberals don’t “get” about the whole Evergreen State College to-do; and our big, boistrous birthday party (tomorrow, Thursday 6/8/17, at the tony Two Bells!).

5/31/17: NOT SO ‘CRUDDY’
May 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL starts with a great honor for one of my fave cartoonist/novelist/playwrights. It goes on to mention the “dirty” aspect of cleaning up Lake Washington; big-big plans for the UW; the apparent end to one of our era’s most famous couples; and five years after the Cafe Racer slayings (so many senseless slayings ago).

5/25/17: FORGING AHEAD?
May 24th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Could the Black Dog Forge’s Belltown building, and the legendary band-practice basement space within, be rescued from redevelopment by a crowdfunding campaign? In other MISCmedia MAIL topics today: Why people don’t listen to facts; ambitious plans for the state’s schools; Starbucks’ employee-motivation program backfiring; and preparing for our new computer overlords.
