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?

3/13/18: GO(NE) FISH
Mar 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

‘People-sized salmon’ disappearing; two widely different local music legends gone; more Richard Sherman details; preparing for the student walkout.

2/20/18: ‘ROLLING’ ON THE WAVES
Feb 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

On a relatively slow news day we discuss an ocean-themed bowling alley (really!); a Muslim activist speaking to Japanese Americans; the Yakama tribe suing polluters; and a costly, no-electronics, teen ‘unboot camp.’

1/23/18: TO BOLDLY ‘GO’…
Jan 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Inside Amazon’s latest physical-store concept; women lacking on NW corporate boards; using ‘mindfulness’ for racial healing; Pearl Jam’s ‘homecoming’ benefit shows.

1/19/18: AND THE NOMINEES FOR CORPORATE GROVELING ARE…
Jan 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: Seattle won’t get Amazon’s HQ2; pre-Women’s March thoughts; health-care-crisis comix; there’s a state construction budget at last; and scads of weekend events.

1/12/18: LOVE OF LOAF
Jan 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend letter: The ‘Uncomfortable MLK;’ harsh truth about upward mobility; Boeing off-shoring plane design?; a life form that’s been here since the gold rush.

1/11/18: AMA-BUCKS? AMA-ZLOTYS?
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Money magazine thinks Amazon could launch its own, well, money; judge OKs’ SPD reform progress; Bob Ferguson’s war on the ‘war on pot’.

11/15/17: NOT THE SAME OLD SONG
Nov 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your post-blackout (we hope) Wednesday: David Bazan on being an ‘ex-Evangelical’; city council nixes ‘head tax’; another legal victory against Longview coal port; Marvel comes to MoPOP.

9/18/17: CANNERY ‘ROW’
Sep 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Salmon Homecoming Celebration had its 25th anniversary this past weekend. We glance a brief peek at that today, and also at the “Lady Jane” of Seattle mayors; big money for a fired Swedish physician; battles for two cities’ waterfronts’ futures; and the welcome return of rain. (“Eureka! The crops are saved!”)

9/11/17: E TU, HQ2?
Sep 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

While the nation’s opposite corner endures massive eco-carnage, our corner faces continuing pundit-blather about Amazon’s “co-equal headquarters” scheme. We additionally discuss visual proof of transit’s popularity; more about our corner’s own enviro-crisis (fire instead of water); the Seahawks’ opening meh; and remembering a not-so-sweet 16 years ago.

9/7/17: ‘FACE TO BEAK’
Sep 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We won’t have Rep. Dave Reichert to kick around any more; Washington’s one of 15 states preparing to sue over the DACA decision; and wildfires continue to destroy forest lands and choke up the skies. But let’s also talk today about something REALLY important: the new Seahawks “alternate” logo, and the fun online commenters are having with it.

8/31/17: KINGDOME NOSTALGIA
Aug 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

One of the principal engineers behind the now-razed domed stadium passed away, having outlived his creation by 17 years. Our further Thursday topics: tribal rights to privately-held art works; a WSU prof decrying neo-Nazi images on campus; a fired cop’s legal settlement; and whether Amazon should spin off its most profitable asset (in order to keep it profitable).

8/22/17: THERE WENT THE SUN
Aug 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The temperature cooled significantly. The outdoor light looked like a movie “day for night” shot. And people glimpsed the realms beyond our own world. Now it’s back to the dog daze o’ summer, when MISCmedia MAIL mentions a call for a “centrist” political movement (as if we don’t already have one); a national media article claiming some Seattleites like to live in their cars (?); prison time for a local Ponzi-schemer; and a big trans convention coming to town.

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).

8/14/17: A SUPPORTIVE ALL(E)Y
Aug 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Sunday’s “Solidarity Against Hate” march traversed one place marchers never go: the alley we know and love as the entrance to Jazz Alley. We ponder that today, and also a forum on how to reduce police killings; a suit against expanded shellfish farming; two kinds of statements at the Seahawks’ debut; and, oh yeah, the return to “normal” local weather.
