10/19/18: UGLY AND BEAUTIFUL
Oct 18th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Loving the Viaduct in its last months; state Supreme Court says kids shouldn’t get life in prison without parole; can a smartphone app help keep people off drugs?

9/20/18: GETTING HUSKY-ER
Sep 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

City Council committee OKs big UW growth plan (with conditions); win for Hanford workers; setback for ICE-jail hunger strikers; A LOT more Amazon Go stores on the way.

8/17/18: PEAS PROTEIN, COLD
Aug 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Starbucks’ ‘craziest’ idea yet; Portland police chief taunts antifa protesters; can bad air get carbon fee passed?; remembering Aretha Franklin.

8/10/18: SPEAKING OUT IN THE OPEN
Aug 9th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

More Meinert accusers, now willing to be named; ‘date-rape drug’ seized at Belltown nightclub; will a ‘private’ Spokane speech doom the GOP’s midterm chances?

5/31/18: THE QUEENS VS. THE EMPEROR
May 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Drag protesters at Amazon’s shareholder meeting; Durkan’s big new shelter plan; LCD license plates and their discontents; harassment claims against ex-UW track coach.

5/23/18: THE CONCRETE FACTS
May 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Still more public-works budgets busted; Seattle and the ‘dream of the ’90s’; the cost of Sawant’s city-printed rally posters; a new apt. complex in the wrong colors.

2/9/18: ‘FIGURE’ DRAWINGS
Feb 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A cartoon guide to economics; who is, isn’t at city/Amazon summit; minor pot convictions in Seattle are erased; thoughts on the Winter Olympics; dozens of weekend events.

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.

12/7/17: ALONG COMES MARY(S)
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Sung and unsung heroines of history; local sports legend sued for harassment; original 13 Coins’ last day; new Viaduct demolition schedule.

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.

6/30/17: 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).

5/26/17: DOWN THE PIKE
May 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big holiday-weekend MISCmedia MAIL: The Pike Place Market’s new part, or at least part of that new part, is now open; Folklife’s last hurrah?; the White House hates rail transit and old people getting jobs; Nike’s overseas labor policies are back in the news; and gazillions of weekend activity listings.

4/5/17: SIREN (SWAN) SONG
Apr 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

An oh-so-Seattle-esque alt-dating site dies, due to a lack of (promised) investment. It’s on the same day that the Viaduct-replacement tunnel finally officially exists; two different outfits say they want to run a “solidarity rally” the same day as a big LGBTQ event in DC; Rep. Jayapal sez she wants more of us in college; and Titleist and Costco continue their golf-ball war.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/30/17: LIFE IMITATES CGI
Mar 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s just a coincidence that there’s a computer-animated feature out now called “The Boss Baby,” and that the title role is voiced by Alec Baldwin, and that ads show the baby in a suit and tie with orange-ish hair. Really. In more deliberate occurrences, we note Daniel Ramirez’s freedom (at least for now); neighbors who want more public amenities in the expanded Convention Center; Jeff Bezos’ even greater (on paper) wealth; and the little Belltown restaurant that got big.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/13/17: IT’S THE SAME OLD SONG
Mar 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

An Italian band was supposed to start a US tour at KEXP. Instead, it got handcuffed, interrogated, searched, and jailed by immigration cops, then shoved on a plane back. Not a happy tune. Further e-missive subjects include a war of spray-painted slogans; a “compromise” about the (really wide) new Alaskan Way; a revolution in comics distribution to match the revolution in the works themselves; and the precarious state of some sewage-eatin’ microbes.
